     The hour is late for “Joe Biden.” His sojourn in America’s highest office was one long twilight of pretending to be effectual, or merely present, and now even that abject pantomime slips into a place of nullity, where all is still and dark. What does he do these languorous weekends at the fabled Delaware beach house? Stare out at the empty Atlantic horizon over an uneaten egg salad sandwich with the crusts cut off? Does he even suspect that the world is already turning without him?

      The pressure is mounting for some group of somebodies to arrange his exit from the scene. Of course, there is no public discussion of that among the somebodies because everything they have been doing for years happens sub rosa, in addition to being of dubious legality. Despite the most formidable praetorian protections — a depraved justice department, a Gestapo-caliber FBI, a debauched news media — the arrows of culpability are flying clean through the beach house windows at that immobilized figure sitting in the crepuscular gloom.

     Forgive me for bringing this up, but remember the first impeachment of Mr. Trump on the grounds of a phone call to freshly-minted President Z in Ukraine pertaining to some fishy matters around the Burisma gas company? Yes, Mr. T was impeached over a mere inquiry into possible misconduct by a former high US official (being one “Joe Biden,” ex-veep) and his bag-man son. The setup was patently obvious even to us bloggers who enjoy no intimate correspondence with organelles of the DC Blob. A CIA spook “whistleblower” named Eric Ciaramella (sssshhhh) was injected into the scene with help from the devious Col. Vindman at NSA and an assist from Intel Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson… and voila! Recall the solemn pageantry of Nancy Pelosi’s march across the Capitol rotunda with the hallowed bill of impeachment on a satin pillow….

     And now, more than three years later, the nation is informed of all the particulars around those Burisma Company’s doings with the Biden family in granular detail ($5-million plus $5-million), laying out just one instance of treasonous moneygrubbing by this family among many grifts in other nations. And in case of any lingering questions — if the news media were not a pseudopod of the Blob — a long roster of bank transfer records has been assembled by Rep. Comer of the House Oversight Committee to validate the deal memos, emails and audio recordings already available for inspection in the alt.news.

    You realize, don’t you, that the DOJ and the FBI had all of this info (a.k.a evidence) in its possession even before Trump impeachment number one? AG William Barr and FBI Director Wray could have stepped up at any time after October, 2019, and said, “Oh, here’s what that phone call to Z was about.” That they didn’t is arguably the most blatant crime among scores of crimes committed by the Blob in the Trump and post-Trump years.

Federal Justice Manual 9-5.000, Section B: Constitutional obligation to ensure a fair trial and disclose material exculpatory and impeachment evidence. Government disclosure of material exculpatory and impeachment evidence is part of the constitutional guarantee to a fair trial. Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83, 87 (1963). The law requires the disclosure of exculpatory and impeachment evidence when such evidence is material to guilt or punishment.”

    So now the Blob is desperate to jettison this embodiment of its corruption and lawlessness, “Joe Biden,” before the Trump-deranged masses start paying attention to the distant yelling from the asteroid belt of actual news beyond noisy Planet MSNBC. The Blob will be fighting for its very life anyway. The Ukraine operation is not proceeding according to plan. Do you know why? Answer: because it was a stupid plan concocted by purblind Neocon idiots. Russia has been insulted to the degree that it deems America unworthy of negotiation — meaning Russia will bring the Ukraine mess to a conclusion on its terms. They will take care to do it gingerly, so as not to further inflame the psychosis afflicting America and tempt us into even grosser stupidities. Namely, they will insist on a neutral Ukraine with no foreign operators in it and some rearrangement of Ukraine’s borders. America will have to lump it. The Blob Neocon faction will blame the whole lamentable affair on “Joe Biden,” who, by then, will be gone from the White House.

     How does that happen? The 25th Amendment, since we are now at the point where his infirmity is as hard to ignore as the evidence of his crimes. How the Blob deals with his successor, the distressing Ms. Harris, is another bridge to cross. The switcheroo itself may be enough to tank the financial markets, which will give the restive nation something else to think about: the personal ruin of every household in the land. Then, things get really interesting.

In April, 2023, Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) Kathie Breault was indicted in the Eastern States District Federal Court for “Conspiracy to Defraud the United States” for giving vaccination cards to people who did not receive Covid-19 vaccinations. Her defense is that the vaccinations were ineffective and harmful, and to administer them would violate the Hippocratic oath of health professionals (First do no harm). Her legal battle against a dishonest and vindictive federal government will require lawyer’s fees that exceed her ability to pay — a reminder that “the process is the punishment.”

Kathie has also been accused of “professional misconduct” by the New York State Licensing Board for prescribing Ivermectin via telehealth visits in July 2021. Many other medical practitioners across the United States have been similarly persecuted and some have lost their licenses to practice. Kathie has been under investigation by New York’s Office of Professional Discipline since March 2022. No decision has been reached as of May 2023.

    Greetings,

    I do not believe Biden is going anywhere. To jettison him off the stage would be to admit that the stolen election and the destruction of the Republic were for nothing. That their fortification of the election ended in disaster.

    Biden isn’t going anywhere and all of these crimes will but garner a stern letter from the Republicans.

    Watch, you’ll see. Now, on with Climate Change!

    • Mick July 24, 2023 at 10:16 am #

      Yes, I have no faith in the “Republican House” led by McCarthy. One of his more enthusiastic lieutenants, Margarine Tailored Gangrene, engaged in a ridiculous vulgar exercise in showing Hunter Biden’s “dick pics” from his laptop in that hearing.

      As I said yesterday, this reminds me of how the “patriotic Republicans” decided to impeach Bill Clinton for lying about his affair with Mizz Lewinski rather than explore his efforts in transferring US booster rocket technology to China, among other treasonous crimes. (Crimes that had the approval of the “Blob”, no doubt. The agenda always marches on….)

      The impeachment of Clinton over a sexual affair just served to raise Slick Willie’s approval rating. Mission accomplished. The “Blob’s” agenda remained underground from most of the public.

      It looks like the same kind of fix is in with the Bidens.

      Ms. Gangrene could’ve hit Hunter hard with the evidence of his helping Daddy get rich through Burisma, as well as his own enrichment. But no, let’s look at his dick in an IRS hearing instead. And drone on and on about how he paid for some whore’s airline ticket to fly to where he was so he could line coke on her tits and fuck her. Most American men are jealous, sadly. Hunter’s ratings may go up too now.

      I see now why the Freedom Caucus kicked this whore out. IT wasn’t just because she called Boebert a “bitch”. The real issues run deeper. She’s a sellout whore.

      • Ron Anselmo July 24, 2023 at 10:27 am #

        • Mick July 24, 2023 at 10:35 am #

          I think I did.

          • C.O.Jones July 24, 2023 at 11:02 am #

            …and I think you’re correct, Mick.
            MTG, at the direction of Trump, lobbied hard for McCarthy to get the speakership which led to giving away any leverage over the budget deal.

            So Trump used MTG to once again sell out the country.

            The dick pics are probably the last time she saw one….

            Evidence of treasonous crimes in front of her and she focuses on the salaciously irrelevant…

          • Anon1970 July 24, 2023 at 5:37 pm #

            According to Wikipedia, it was Victoria Nuland’s father that changed his surname to Nuland. Shepsel became Sherwin, Ber became Bernard and Nudelman became Nuland. Given the discrimination that American Jews faced for much of the 20th century, it was not surprising that more than a few anglicized their names. Belle Silverman became Beverly Sills, who, at the peak of her career, was a famous operatic soprano.

      • JohnAZ July 24, 2023 at 10:27 am #

        Ever think that she may have felt that “shock” therapy is the only way to cut through the Mob fog? The fight for Constitutionality is going to be long dirty and violent.

        • Islander July 24, 2023 at 10:37 am #

          John, That is one possibility.

          It is also possible that she doesn’t have the mental furniture—or staff with the mental furniture—to grasp the details of and present, cogently, a bill of particulars concerning The Little Guy’s financial crimes and Ukraine-based (and China based) grifting.

          RFK (gray-matter speaking) she is not!

          So she goes for what she does understand—that The Little Guy is a creep and a ne’er-do-well. Possibly she was able to put it across that Hunter’s “life style” is funded by the taxpayers.

          Just a thought.

          I haven’t invested any time in observing MTG. Maybe she really is doing a “look here—not there” act.

        • Jarek July 24, 2023 at 11:41 am #

          She cheated on her husband repeatedly.

          What does it matter? People used to know that immorality in one area (lying and cheating) corresponded highly with lying and cheating in other areas. And the rationalizations for the various forms of lying and cheating lead to a darkened intellect in general.

        • loosethedogs July 24, 2023 at 12:46 pm #

          Me thinks the “fight for Constitutionality” is a ship that’s already sailed beyond the horizon. IMHO the UNIPARTY that pretends to run things is the largest collection of political eunuchs in our nation’s history. It’s why, after all is said and done, we are going to have to reinvent a new form of federal government within the next 10 years….

          • abbybwood July 24, 2023 at 1:14 pm #

            I have often wondered how any of these members of Congress and other branches of government can take their oaths to The Constitution with straight faces. Maybe they are thinking during the oath: “Except for this and that and the other”?

        • marcusaureliusblancas July 28, 2023 at 9:52 am #

          She has her own issues for sure. Taken the ticket no doubt. However she could have really riled things up by posting a picture of H banging his 14 yr old niece. She was no more than 10 feet away from Joe during public appearamces that election campaign probably to protect her from a free lance reporter that might have asked some pretty interesting questions.

          Look at their issues with their dog behavior. A pure reflection of the family. Stay clear.

      • hmuller July 24, 2023 at 10:39 am #

        We wouldn’t want every Republican in Congress to be an MTG. But it’s good to have a few to point out the depravity of the Biden crime family – whether that’s bribes or drugs, hookers, incest, etc.

      • cowbell81 July 24, 2023 at 10:44 am #

        She probably enjoyed doing that research and looking at pics of Hunter’s dick. By getting them added to the Congressional Record now she has the ability to take a loosie at them whenever she feels like it!

        • hmuller July 24, 2023 at 11:28 am #

            Yup. Women have no interest in looking at men’s junk. Nor do women go in for porn. (My guess is that the only women who view porn are those who have a professional interest in it.)

            Actually, women don’t even go in for “beefcake”–as the publishers of Playgirl magazine learned back in the 70s. They found that their readership consisted of gay men, and not women.

        Mick, if you ever need to massively vent your spleen again… wouldn’t you think that maybe your bile could be spewed at a more deserving target?
        Biden, Hunter, any of his malignant, corrupt, incompetent Cabinet members? ANY seditious, ESG/woke/anti-Trump Dem in congress?
        Which Dem do you find more palatable than MTG? Yes, she is flawed… but strongly supports MAGA and America… her focus on Hunter’s child-trafficking for sex, across state line is worthy… many scumbags have received decades in prison for the same.
        “Treason” is probably accurate, but a bridge too far, with our corrupt DOJ and an equally corrupt Dem-controlled Senate.
        So chillax, change your panties, and fire on the enemy, not a sometimes goofy ally.

      IF they get rid of Biden (a big if), it will be to replace him with another, more pure zealot. They can control Biden because he’s old, he’s vain (he thinks he’s another FDR), he’s stupid (one of those stacks of bricks used by Antifa to smash windows and assault cops is orders of magnitude brighter than Biden), and he’s corrupt, even by Washington, DC standards. If he goes away, they’ll replace him with Newsom, RFK Jr., or some other leftist nutjob who believes global warming is both horrendous and entirely created by white Americans. That’s the string the WEF and its allies are pulling to collapse the West, and especially America, and that’s because that’s Klaus Schwab’s pet cause. Panic the masses with threats of imminent destruction, promise safety if they’ll only surrender their freedom, harp on the dangers long enough and loudly enough, and grab power. It worked with Russia, it worked in Italy, and it *really* worked in late Weimar Germany. And, sadly, it seems to be working here.

    The most distressing part is that the Powers That Be already knew about the monkey-business going on behind the scenes. I wonder if Mitt Romney will come out now and apologize to Trump for voting for impeachment???

      If an actual investigation we should expect according to our laws actually takes place (I know, I know…) then the obsequious Mr Mitt will be looking for a rug to hide under as at least one of his sons was involved in this gold rush of pilfering along with the Democrat bad boy gang.

        As I’ve said before, why would most people want to know of the ruling class’s perfidy, when doing so might cause them to realize they helped install the bastards in office? Moreover, if you see and comprehend the enormity of modern American fascism and then try to act against it, your life and the lives of your family and friends will be ruined. No, the safe play — and all anyone gives a flying fuck about anymore is safety and convenience — is to just turn a blind eye if possible and go along with the corruption; that way, nobody can blame you for bad things, you can deny knowledge (and therefore responsibility) of what’s happening, and you might actually get a little extra money or other reward for keeping quiet. So yeah, we know that backstabbing, arrogant bitch CBS anchor, Norah O’Donnell, and her colleagues are gaslighting us, but we won’t do a damn thing about it because we might lose something if we do.

      • Ron Anselmo July 24, 2023 at 10:15 am #

        Rudy – on military spending, the $800 billion is distorted. It’s not value. The US (taxpayer) spends $22,000 for a $17 hammer, while Russia spends $17 for a $17 hammer. See how that works?

            The government is not a benign purveyor of goodness that will regulate crony capitalism. Government is evil, a sink point for evil power agents. Government needs to be controlled, probably more so than corporations.

            Government creates elitism and cronyism. Government will never be the answer.

            Problem is, there is no other pathway available to control the cronyism, is there.

            Therefore, we are screwed. Reality now shows that fact. In history, the end result of the public getting screwed is the overthrow of government.

          • Anthea July 26, 2023 at 5:42 pm #

            Crony capitalism can’t exist to any meaningful degree without government effectively creating and enforcing it.

            Sure, the guy who owns your town’s hardware store may hire his brother or his girlfriend instead of hiring you. But, 1) it is his money (as opposed to taxpayer’s money), and 2) if this choice turns out to be poor judgement, he will pay the price out of his own pocket. If his brother or his girlfriend are poor employees or steal from the company or some such, his competitors will eat his lunch.

            With a crony-capitalist government beneficiary type of company, it’s not his money that is being spent or staked, it’s YOUR money. If he hires incompetent or dishonest people, it’s with your money. If his product costs more because of this, you pay the extra cost. Further, government-subsidized entities (like the public school system or health care) effectively become monopolies. You are forced to pay for them whether you use their product/service or not, you pay the excessively high costs caused by monopolies, and–if you are free to choose an alternative or competing provider–you pay twice. Often no meaningful alternative is available because they have been priced out of the market, regulated to as to be almost identical to the the government-monopolists’ product, or even because alternatives have been outlawed.

            The free-market capitalist cannot create a monopoly without government support. If he engages in cronyism, he’ll pay the price, if it was a poor decision, and may go out of business. On the other hand, maybe it was a good decision to hire his brother–in which case he’ll reap the benefits. The main thing, though, is he does whatever his does with HIS money, not yours. And he’s entitled to spend his own money as he sees fit.

            Your local school district, on the other hand, is spending YOUR money to hire friends and relatives. And if those friends and relatives turn out to be slackers, incompetents, thieves, or child-molestors, no one will ever be held accountable, and the school district need not fear going out of business or losing funding. You are FORCED to pay them at the point of a gun. You can’t take your money and go to a competitor for educational services.

          Yes, Ron, we are in complete agreement. $17 for a $17 hammer is legitimate War spending (no need for euphemisms, like “defense”) However, $22,000 for a hammer (actually, a “multi-directional inertia-enhanced impact driver”) is Robbery. It is one of the operations run by the Dem/Repub Uniparty, who are robbing the bottom 90%. Also, the Ukraine war, the “Health Care system, “higher” education (its cost rising 5 X faster than inflation)… anything the bottom 90% need, just as they LOSE 20% of their share of the national income since 1973.

            Rudy – you’re firing on all 8 cylinders – yes, it’s bad enough when pricing of non-essential or discretionary spending items is predatory, but when essential or needed items are intentionally priced in a predatory fashion, it’s a different brand of evil.

    • BackRowHeckler July 24, 2023 at 10:28 am #

      “This Ukraine operation isn’t going according to plans.”

      That’s probably the most important sentence in this blog. The Spring Counteroffensive, delusional to begin with, has turned into a bloody disaster. A whole generation of Ukrainian young people are being wiped out, and for what? It reminds one of the Wehrmacht continuing to fight in the Spring of 1945. The City of Odessa is being destroyed ~ the longer this war continues the worse it will get. Last week President Biden announced he will ship long range missiles to Ukraine, missiles that can reach Moscow. My non-professional prediction is if US provided missiles begin raining down on Moscow, armageddon will be triggered, and it will be lights out for Kiev, Brussels, and maybe DC.

      • tresho July 24, 2023 at 10:45 am #

        • Anthea July 26, 2023 at 9:23 pm #

          The intriguing part is that the disappearance of DC wpi;d create a power vacuum that would be filled, probably more or less locally, by whoever was at hand in that place and time–and had the guns to back it up.

          What kind of people would they be?

          Welp, based on my knowledge of the east coast in its northerly areas, It would be people almost as distasteful as those who infest DC. Maybe worse. The region is heavily infested with diverse groups, all of which are very tribal, and each of which would seek to seize power over the others, and this not even for the advantage of their own “tribe,” but for themselves only.

          We here in the hinterlands have plenty of our own home-grown crooks and grifters, and there would be a scuffle for power–hopefully with more chance for the decent, liberty and community-minded people to come out on top. But there are no guarantees anywhere.

          No matter where you are, the people who are currently in power will not voluntarily start doing their own wash and butchering their own pigs–or even raising pigs. Their plan will be to steal yours.

        brh – Going back, if I may, to our brief exchange on a previous thread, regarding Agenda 2030 and habitability of older homes, Stage 1 of the dispossession agenda has begun here, with our First Minister’ considering’ (yeah, right) making it illegal to sell homes with gas boilers. (Stage 2, I strongly assert, will be to declare them uninhabitable, with services being cut off and owners evicted.)

        Half of households in my city live in Victorian/Georgian tenements which are not retrofittable with heat pumps.

            I’m horrified (although hardly surprised, because I said on here that it would happen) about the coming non-saleability of unretrofitted homes. My younger daughter bought her first flat (lovely top-floor Victorian tenement flat) about a year or so ago. She put all her savings into it and took out a large mortgage. One way or another, she’s going to lose it. It will have no value and she’s stuck with over £200K of debt. Just what Professor Klaus ordered.

    Morning Jim – excellent as always. Thanks as always.

    Crepuscular – informed of the meaning a few weeks ago, by my 19-year-old Salutatorian son headed to UF this fall with a GPA north of 4.7 – proof my wife has been unfaithful.

    So only the second time I’ve heard it. Thanks for the continual education. Hope the homestead is holding up under the summer heat.

    • BackRowHeckler July 24, 2023 at 10:32 am #

      Congrats RA. You should be proud ~ young people seem to have the entire rotten culture working against them and it’s good to see a success now and then.

      • cbeard July 24, 2023 at 12:29 pm #

        Yes, congratulations to RA. I must add that my grandson just graduated as Valedictorian. His best friend was Salutatorian.

        • Ron Anselmo July 24, 2023 at 11:49 pm #

          cbeard – thank you, congratulations to you as well. You’ve obviously passed your wisdom down. We’ll get back to meritocracy someday, I hope. Until then, make sure he still competes – no matter how slanted the new rules are.

      • Ron Anselmo July 24, 2023 at 11:45 pm #

        Thanks BRH, much appreciated – speaking of rotten culture, UF, some call the “Harvard of the South”, claiming a Top 5 standing in institutions of higher learning, has gone well woke.

        My son is a staunch conservative, a competitor, believing in merit, so he’ll be swimming upstream. He’s 4G UF – a great grandfather, a grandfather & great uncle, myself & my brother – all graduates. Much has changed – structurally.

        The freshman orientation was grueling with presentations & breakout sessions on different topics about the university. From the PowerPoint presentations, pictures of which usually had three students, one would guess that the enrollment is either 33% black or 67% black.

        In additional virtue signaling, almost all student speakers were foreign students. A Belgian student with broken English, addressing a thousand people in an auditorium.

        We get it. We welcome students from Belgium – but what kind of management decision has a speaker uncomfortable with his English, addressing an audience who can barely understand him? A lose-lose. They’ve got some higher learning to do alright. Thanks again BRH.

      Paternity fraud is huge. If the truth were known, marriage as an institution would already be over or the law changed, mandating genetic testing of every newborn.

      • SW July 24, 2023 at 12:10 pm #

        Where do you come up with this insanity, Jarek? Please tell me this is all an act and you don’t actually believe what you post here.

        • Beryl of Oyl July 24, 2023 at 12:47 pm #

          There’s a number certain groups like to throw out, a claim that X percentage of babies born in wedlock do not belong to the legal father.

          I’m not sure how they arrive at it, usually it’s something like “a friend of my cousin works in a lab and he says…”

          I’m pretty sure that a high number of requests for paternity tests due turn out to prove that the husband is not the father, but that would be skewed by the fact that the only time someone pays for such a test is when it’s in doubt in the first place.

          This is why we got so many people to fall for the “safe and effective” vaxx, among other fallacies.

          Nobody stops to think, “how do they know?”

          They just assume that “the experts” do know and don’t lie.

          BTW going back to Scott Atlas’ book, he is full of praise for one governor, and that governor is Ron DeSantis.

          Ron actually did his own reading, only speaking with Dr. Atlas to ask him whether his conclusions were correct. He also called Deborah Birx directly, and got it out of her that there was NO scientific basis for any of her “guidelines”. None at all.

          We are seeing a lot of DeSantis bashing from the pro-Trump side, but Ron the presidential candidate is Trump’s creation.

          RFK Jr. the presidential candidate is to a large degree Trump’s creation as well.

          • SW July 24, 2023 at 1:16 pm #

            I read Scott Atlas’ book on your recommendation and was impressed with his attempt to base pandemic decisions on common sense and good medical practice. DeSantis seems to me to have a backbone and I remember how he was attacked for following Atlas’ advice and was called Deathsantis. Trump needs to stop the smears and name calling and do what’s best for our country.

          • abbybwood July 24, 2023 at 1:50 pm #

            Apparently there is a documentary floating around detailing DeSantis’ crimes at Gitmo while an officer.

            Gulp.

          • hmuller July 24, 2023 at 3:44 pm #

            Interesting phrasing, Abby. So those are DeSantis’ crimes, not the crimes of the military command, the Pentagon, the President, and everyone responsible for administering Gitmo.
            If he did anything in violation of the orders from above, tell us about it.

        • Bobby E July 24, 2023 at 7:11 pm #

          SW,
          “Where do you come up with this insanity, Jarek?” I read an article some time ago about a study that was done sometime in the 50’s or 60’s. I forget what the purpose of the study was, but part of the findings, that had nothing to do with the study so were not published, was that a LOT of the fathers were not the biological father of the children in question. And this was back during more puritanical times where infidelity was thought to be rather low. Culturally we see the man as the likely philanderer. While women are kind of absolved of any need to be observed for similar behavior. Why? Well because there’re women, moms, etc. Pure and in control of themselves. It has allowed women to hide in plain sight.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder July 25, 2023 at 7:44 am #

            Culturally we see the man as the likely philanderer.

            People seem to forget the obvious fact that in every marital infidelity there are two philanderers, one from within and one from without. The “one from without” is usually also the “one from within” in another relationship. The odds of cheating have nothing to do with being men or women, as it (well, usually) takes one of each…it’s just two people making selfish choices.

        • Anthea July 26, 2023 at 10:25 pm #

          @ SW:

          Jarek has no contact with the real world. He has no friends, no social life, and no job, and probably rarely leaves the house. He gets his ideas about life from reading blogs run by incels and predatory attorneys. He is too dumb to realize that it is predatory attorneys promote this stuff, as it is their bread and butter. And, as is the case with most incels, his ego requires him to think that the reason women shun him is because women are bad people. Actually, at least in Jarek’s case, it is because he is unable to engage with people in the real world (probably due to being “on the spectrum”). That, and being unsuited to assume adult male responsibilities, perhaps the foremost of which would be holding job.

          But, as I have mentioned before, I suspect he has a disability of some kind–mental, physical, or both. No one who was mentally and physically healthy would live as he does. Actually, neither would many disabled people, as they often have too much self-respect.

          • Anthea July 26, 2023 at 10:57 pm #

            I forgot to mention the porn. Much of Jarek’s “information” about women probably comes from watching porn.

            In fact, his careful study and meticulous record keeping with regards to this material has revealed to him that 50% of women have sex with animals. (Could have something to do with his choice of porn.)

            Actually, one of my relatives long maintained that one of his three children by an old girlfriend was not his. A later paternity test revealed that she was. There was actually some reason to believe that she might not have been his.

            However, as another relative quipped, “If she’s not married to him, obiously, she can date anyone she wants.”

          • Jarek July 27, 2023 at 1:00 pm #

            What about paternity fraud? Pretty funny, right? Just like men having to choose between paying their alimony or buying the medicine they need. Courts don’t like to reduce alimony for jobless men you see.

            Probably because family courts are controlled by women.

      • Jarek July 24, 2023 at 12:38 pm #

        The low estimate of paternity fraud is a whopping ten percent.

        You are are a naif it would seem.

        • megabeth July 24, 2023 at 2:43 pm #

          Paternity fraud is the price men pay for not being able to gestate babies. Thank goodness for men that it is not all that common.

          • hmuller July 24, 2023 at 3:47 pm #

            Paternity fraud is yet another reason men need to have their own babies. Thank goodness we live in a woke era when that’s possible.

        Islander & Paula – thanks for the support, but I learned way too late in life to always go straight to intent. The amount of friction & misunderstanding it eliminates is so vast, it’s hard to quantify.

        Janos’s intent wasn’t in any way directed at me personally & he had no intent to piss on my parade. He has a lot of axes to grind, as many of us do, and my joke just gave him a good segue that’s all.

        No harm – no foul.

        • Paula D July 25, 2023 at 11:51 am #

          True, Ron. Although it was an awkward segue, it did give him an opening.

          I got two laughs out of it, yours and his, so it’s all good.

        • Jarek July 25, 2023 at 12:13 pm #

      or
      Two: His hatred of women.

      Nah, that was too easy to speculate on.

      • Jarek July 24, 2023 at 7:45 pm #

        So now you believe in eugenics? If only!

        Quality is bad, right? If genes play any part, we should breed for poor quality. That will teach the Jareks of the world!

      • Rulo Deschamps July 24, 2023 at 9:15 pm #

        Paula, Ron’s joke was good if a bit wicked. Vlad hasn’t mastered the art of civilized conversation. Maybe too late for him. We may be his only interlocutors. For example, he could make his points about eugenics (which as a farmer I know it works both for plants and for animals) – without bringing out the old tired sack of “women this, women that” – or “blacks-joos this and that”.

        One wonders: does he ever have a conversation in the real world? Is he aware his pet peeves and militant outrage (not to mention his unorthodox views about AHitler’s little project) will make anyone who functions in reality back out slowly saying “Ooooook” and hoping never to cross him again?

        On the plus side, as far as I know, he doesn’t insult. Ironically, he’d be insulted plenty if he brought his screen oratory to a taco stand.

        • hmuller July 25, 2023 at 11:50 am #

          I hear you, Rulo. That dogmatic, humorless, sad little man is about the last one in this forum I’d want to deal with in the real world

        • Jarek July 25, 2023 at 12:15 pm #

    First impeachment was the Mueller debacle, the second was the Ukraine debacle, the Covid prelude.

    Why Trump was unable to deal with the Deep State Blob may be an indication of how far down the road the autocratic Uniparty has traveled. I remember how the conservatives, Sean Hannity for one, lauded the choice of Barr as the AG, to give Trump a fighting chance against the DS.

    Right before he plunged the DOJ dagger deep into Trump’s back.

      Someone told me that he thinks Trump has come to like the feeling of a knife in his back.

      BTW in the book I just finished, by Dr. Scott Atlas, he too noticed that President Trump’s gut instincts tended to be the right ones, but then he would somehow allow himself to get turned away from them.

      I recommend that book, not just for Dr. Atlas’ insights, but for what it confirms about the MSM, our universities, and the state of what we call science in America.

        ”• The second larger Obama/Holder objective was control over the FBI. Why was that important? Because the FBI does the domestic investigative work on anyone who needs or holds a security clearance. The removal of security clearances could be used as a filter to further build the internal ideological army they were assembling. Additionally, with new power in the ODNI created as a downstream consequence of the Patriot Act, new protocols for U.S. security clearances were easy to justify.

        Carefully selecting fellow ideological travelers was facilitated by this filtration within the security clearance process. How does that issue later manifest? Just look around at how politicized every intelligence agency has become, specifically including the FBI……

        Through the advice and consent rules, the Intelligence Branch uses the SSCI to keep out people they consider dangerous to their ongoing operations. Any appointee to the intelligence community must first pass through the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, before they get a full Senate vote. If the SSCI rejects the candidate, they simply refuse to take up the nomination. The president is then blocked from that appointment. This is what happened with President Trump over and over again.”

        I saw him as a hostage being held as he stood behind Fauci and Birx. Blink once for yes and twice for no.

        And he was a coward. He invited Atlas to be on the task force and Atlas was literally shunned by the entire group.

        Too bad Trump didn’t have the goods on Fauci then. He could have fired him with cause and brought in Jay Battacharya, and Harvey Reisch and Peter McCollough and Co. to create a coherent strategy to deal with Covid.

        Interesting thought to think RFK, Jr. had the goods on Fauci and Trump invited Bobby to work on vaccine issues. Trump says he likes Bobby. I wonder if he ever tried to school Trump on how evil Fauci, the CDC and FDA plus Big Pharma actually are?

        • Beryl of Oyl July 25, 2023 at 3:09 pm #

          He didn’t need to have anything on Fauci to remove him from his own task force.

      Barr, the ultimate go-to “cleanup man.” It’s his kind, the second generation CIA guys who can “check out anytime they like, but they can never leave…”
      Because why would they? Using their power creatively, hurtfully, is self-gratifying in a career-long Milgram Experiment kind of way. Few are the people on this planet who have that kind of opportunity right out of the gate, an occupation in high demand for both psychopaths and sadists.

      First impeachment was the Ukraine debacle.

      The Dems ran an entire impeachment charade without once bringing up why they were so set on sending weapons to Ukraine in the first place.

      The beleaguered citizens of Donbass were never mentioned.

      The second impeachment was even more ridiculous, since it took place after Trump had already left the White House, and impeachment is a means to remove a leader from office.

      Although they spent 2 years telling us that Trump would not leave, he did.
      But they pretended that he didn’t and went through a farcical trial without him.

      Trump was not “unable” to deal with the Deep State Blob – the plain truth is that Trump did not even try. He appointed James Comey to continue as Director of theFBI despite Comey’s massive and public obstruction of justice in re Hillary Clinton. It was all downhill from there.

      The Trump worshippers are every bit as irrational as the Leftist Blob organisms. I’m so sick of the pathetic excuses – “Trump didn’t know what he was getting into” or “Trump didn’t have any help from Bitch McConnel” or “The Blob was mean to Trump and he just couldn’t fight it”.

      The truth is that for FOUR LONG YEARS we watched our beloved country nosedive into an abyss of corruption and tyranny while the guy who had PROMISED us to fix it tweeted like a twelve year old girl. At least have the decency to acknowledge the truth and stop floating vapid excused. It does make a difference.

      Trump has now unleashed his twelve-year-old intellect on Ron “Desnctimonious” and the claque of Trump worshippers is piling on hard. Bannon describes DeSantis as a Bushite, stopping just short of saying he is the spawn of Satan but then assures us he’ll be “ready” in four years. WTF??? DeSantis is a Bushie now but in four years he’ll be just fine?

    I appreciate the quote from Vivek. He’s tied with DeSantis for a reason.

    He’s a very eloquent, and incredibly smart dude that I think will give Trump a run, and I hope, albeit with little optimism, that Trump will refrain from personal attacks on him and see his potential as a VP choice.

      I like Vivek too and even though I don’t agree with some of his positions, he states them clearly and doesn’t engage in vague, empty platitudes. He would be a good choice for VP for either party (democrats if RFK, Jr gets the nomination — remote possibility).

      • Merkwurdiglieb July 24, 2023 at 11:23 am #

        John, when you speak of “lemmings” are you speaking from personal experience? I take no pleasure in insulting people but it sounds to me as if you’ve been conditioned for the very defeat you criticize others for. Perhaps you can take heart in that, just as all the predictions of Russia’s defeat proved to be spectacularly inaccurate, so the neutering of the Anerican people will be soon unwound. The sleeping giant will again awaken. To the victors will go the spoils and not to the anchovies.

        • tuco22 July 24, 2023 at 11:54 am #

          I call them lemmings, too. Because that’s what they are. Only lemmings will vote again for governors who allowed blm and antifa terrorists to burn their cities and kill people. Only lemmings will repeatedly vote for people who destroy their country and their states.

      Oh, change is certainly going to happen. It’s a just a function of will it be the ‘easy’ way via elections, versus the ‘hard’ way resulting from defeat against the Russia/China alliance and the loss of the $dollar.

      Of course, the hard way is happening anyway, so it’s really of a function of whether a person/government truly acting in the best interests of the people on behalf of the country leads us through the coming times. (The USA’s version of Putin.)

      That is, the end result is a fixed constant; the only variable is how we get there.

    Vivek’s dream

    Not as long as conservatives refuse to vote as a protest!!

    The reversal of the Deep State will only happen from the bottom up, the Mob is in total control of the top of the pyramid.

    Start with Red states stopping mail in ballots and adopting paper trail elections that are cheat proof.

    Wait, I see porcine fly overs.

    • Jarek July 24, 2023 at 11:59 am #

      Vivek’s dreams are just more Republican fantasies about proposition nations populated by mongrels without any history, tradition, or pride. Just “consumers”.

    • cbeard July 24, 2023 at 12:49 pm #

      I haven’t heard a peep out of any “conservatives” on stopping the mail in fiasco, nor anything on electronic voting machines. Without said changes, the next election will be just as corrupt as the last. The next one will be a real clusterfuck.

    “…the personal ruin of every household in the land. Then, things get really interesting.”

    The shortages we are experiencing now, e.g. pharmaceuticals (e.g. antibiotics), other medical supplies (e.g. iv fluids), car parts and myriad other needed things, are a function of the US$ NOT being accepted for payment. The biden show claims one of the problems is the unions on the west coast; however, multiple financial investigators have shown that the unions report that their problem is lack of work due to NOTHING COMING IN FROM CHINA!!!! The US$ is being rejected by all of the BRICS+ (now counting 40 or so) nations. China wants parity between the US$ and Yuan/Remnibi in order to supply goods to the US. Currently the US$ is 7:1 vs the Yuan; parity would require a dollar devaluation by about 85%. That deval has to happen to keep goods in wallmarts, etc.

    ‘the personal ruin of every household in the land. Then, things get really interesting.’ That’s not just another articulate statement. It is reality and happening NOW!

    And, BTW, BRICS+ is having a summit in mid august to announce the development of a gold back currency to be used as the world reserve currency IN PLACE OF THE DYING US$!

    Best gird one’s loins. 🙂

        AZ: I truly hope your wrong but I fear you are correct. The above is a gross simplification of what’s going on financially between the wane of the US$ and the rise of the BRICS+ currency and the Yuan. When I was in college in the 70s, most of my colleagues would have understood the above. When I talk with my daughters friends, all college grads, I fear your numbers are correct.

        • Rulo Deschamps July 24, 2023 at 9:57 pm #

          neurodoc,

          What you say is good. It is so. Question: I thought brics, Shanghai cooperation area, Russian federation and sphere of influence are right now roughly splitting payment taken between U$ and their own currency. 40-60, or 50-50?

          So while the trend you describe is correct, I posit that the U$ is in deep shit less from competition (It is now one of at least 3 possible forms of payment for many instead of owning 90% or so of world trade) – than from internal collapse.

          I can only speak for Latin America, but the attitude now is “we’ll trade in yuan, but convert them to U$ because it is the backbone of our currency is dollars. This is our gold” – so those countries absorb lots of greenbacks and park them in central banks and under mattresses in middle class homes that know their currency is crap and have decades of experience saving in dollars.

          My 2¢, like Islander I’m not an economist or understand much of their jargon. I do think many countries are sitting on the fence right now. Personally, I don’t think the US dollar has much of a future, but the world, a chunk of it, disagrees. Still. Internal contradictions and stresses are too awesome. In a split second, millions can decide to withdraw, realize and trade their $ for tangible assets and safe havens, and then yes, what Mr K said.

      • SW July 24, 2023 at 12:29 pm #

        Most don’t understand simple economics and have no idea what reserve currency means but they do understand $5/dozen eggs. That’s one of the realities Bidenomics can’t sugarcoat.

        About two months ago I saw on the news that a common cancer drug used in juvenile leukemia wasn’t being produced anymore b/c it wasn’t a money maker. I don’t remember the name of the drug and hope that publicly shaming this pharmaceutical reversed it. How long did it take to get the makers of baby formula back on line? Months.

        neurodoc,

        I completely agree with you and yet, JohnAZ is right that 80% of the adult population doesn’t understand it and isn’t interested in it. Hence Marjorie Taylor Greene resorting to dick pics to get the public’s attention about Hunter Biden’s, part er, role in the Biden family malfeasance.

        Personal finance is bad enough and most people stop at balancing their check books and diversifying their 401k. Corporate finance is even worse and few people can untangle an income statement or balance sheet in any meaningful way. Global finance/ banking has an even smaller following. People don’t understand fractional reserve banking, trade imbalances, exchange rates, the petrodollar, what the Fed does versus what the Treasury does, what the Bank for International Settlements is etc. etc.

        I think people will start getting clued into the symptoms when they start seeing really empty shelves. Unless it is your medication that is out of stock, it is hard to see that the way most pharmacies are setup. Same with car parts, unless it’s your item that is out of stock, you wouldn’t necessarily know your dealership is running at a 30% out of stock rate. But visibly empty retail shelves will tell the story to the consumer.

        • Islander July 24, 2023 at 3:23 pm #

          “I completely agree with you and yet, JohnAZ is right that 80% of the adult population doesn’t understand it and isn’t interested in it. ”

          I don’t disagree.
          I am similarly challenged. But I can read a decent analysis written for non-experts and get a usable take-away.

          Some sense of what, bottom line, all of this means for YOU, Mr. and Mrs. America.

          It is our media who have totally dropped the ball in not (1) hammering on the importance of the financials of our economy and also financial corruption at the top (with the possibility that the Ukr debacle is partly a cover-up operation), and (2) finding ways to convey the important essence of complex financial issues to the public.

          The media chooses what to hammer away on. Fr’instance they decided to hammer away on Trump and covid until everyone believed their narratives.

          If they wanted to they *could* actually educate the public about the nation’s finances, and corruption. Isn’t that why we had a “yellow press”? Of course, there would probably be a run on pitch forks if they did . . .

          I have a feeling that in any number of “third world” nations, these Biden scandals would lead to immediate votes of no confidence, possibly criminal charges, and you are out, baby!

          And maybe not back to the beach house in Delaware with an egg-salad sandwich to talk to.

        • Paula D July 24, 2023 at 3:26 pm #

          I remember back in 2008 an alternative reporter stood outside a Wall Street trading firm and asked the traders walking by to explain how derivatives work.

          They couldn’t. I can’t either, except to note that it is a scam.

          • Ron Anselmo July 25, 2023 at 2:24 am #

            Paula – not all derivatives are bad. Financial derivatives yes, but commodity futures contracts with an underlying hard asset are a form of derivative, and without them, farming (mining, drilling, exploration) would cease to function – savaged by weather & risk. They serve as a price stabilization mechanism and help offset risk – a hedge – for farmers (miners & drillers).

            The economic role that traders play is that of willing to take risk that farmers need to lay off and hoping to make a profit for their willingness to step in and assume that risk.

            Hedging risk is a necessary part of large-scale farming or agricultural businesses, without which markets couldn’t function and supermarket shelves would be re-priced on a daily basis.

            The problem comes when either producers (farmers) or consumers (end users) over hedge – then it becomes closer to gambling.

            Certain I’ve muddied the water. Sorry.

          • Paula D July 25, 2023 at 12:07 pm #

            I’ll admit that I don’t understand economics, but I do remember when they changed the rules on the Chicago Board of Trade, so that the speculators did not have to take actual possession of the crops at the end of the season.

            The ensuing gambling frenzy drove commodity (what the rest of us call food) prices up to crazy levels, which is when Haitians ended up eating mud pies because they couldn’t afford to buy food.

            And then there is cap-n-trade, where the Earth’s environment is sold off to the likes of Bill Gates, in the name of climate change.

            I’m just not impressed with those “willing to take a risk”, especially because I can see that there is no risk, since the government bails them out if they crash the place.

          You nailed it. But it’s worse than you thought.

          Just stop at personal finance.
          How many people have a budget?
          How many know how to balance a checkbook or even have one?
          How many know what a 401K is?

            It is worse than I explained, you are right.

            Many, many people are unbanked to begin with and just operate from one day to the next without a thought for the future or any idea how to plan. This is why people who hit the lottery or inherit some amount of money are usually broke three years later.

          The Most Shocking Aspect of RFK Jr.’s Anti-Semitism
          What’s surprising isn’t that Kennedy voiced an anti-Jewish conspiracy, but that it took this long.

          By Yair Rosenberg

          Last week, at a dinner event in Manhattan, the Democratic primary candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. shared his unvarnished thoughts about the nature of the coronavirus. “There’s an argument that it is ethnically targeted,” he explained, in remarks captured on video. “COVID-19 is targeted to attack Caucasians and Black people. The people who are most immune are Ashkenazi Jews and Chinese.” To be sure, Kennedy added, “we don’t know whether it was deliberately targeted or not.” In other words, Kennedy apparently believes it is an open question whether the pandemic was engineered by a shadowy cabal to spare Chinese and Jewish people.

          Jarek: Good old Yair Rosenberg to the rescue to help old Ber out. She doesn’t believe that RFK said what he said, you see. But he did. See the video Yair provides.

          What a great sub-heading, eh? This is why we love Yair. Of course he’s RFK is anti-Semitic. You all are!

          • Beryl of Oyl July 24, 2023 at 1:15 pm #

            “In other words”, which RFK Junior DID NOT SAY.

            Ber is still in denial. Watch the video to see the unbearable Truth.

            Ashkenazi Jews………

            I can remember decades ago encountering arguments in online religious forums about Ashkenazi Jews. People will go back and forth arguing about the issue – are they real Jews or not? What’s the difference between real Jews and fake ones? Would an expert like Jarek on all things Jewish know the answer as to how to separate the sheep from the goats?

            This tempest in a teapot also occurs in Christian forums where people calling themselves Christians argue that an opponent denomination (JW’s or Catholics for example) aren’t real Christians, that they are in danger of damnation due to wrong denomination. Then sometimes the debate veers off into subdebates as to how to define who is and isn’t a Christian. Must you be a card carrying member of a Church or is it nowadays simply “identifying” as a Christian good enough? Who sets the standards? When you ask this question many hands start waving frantically, they aren’t about to let their denomination be insulted.

      An 85% devaluation of the $ would create another crisis I see coming that nobody else is much talking about. How will the USA’s traditional suburban working mom of the soccer variety react to a sudden lurch back to a 30’s or 40’s lifestyle?

      This new lifestyle of a broken dollar means changes like no more cheap imported Asian made clothing. Women everywhere and some men will be required to make clothing by hand and at home using sewing machines and patterns. Women learned to do this starting in high school home economics classes. I watched my mom as well as other moms sewing at home along with repairing and patching and repairing clothing. In the 50’s we had local family owned sewing stores that specialized in selling cloth, patterns, sewing machines and accessories etc. A really skilled home seamstress could make a custom fitted dress or even a man’s suit. I can still remember my mom making me and my siblings stand still so she could measure us with a tape and figure out how to dimension a pattern. Hand made clothing in the 50’s wasn’t thrown away, you fixed ’em and patched ’em and handed them down to younger siblings.

      Just as a woman could sew in small town 50’s suburbia, her husband might be found on weekends out in the driveway either under his car or over the engine comparment doing routine maintenance. The average guy in the 50’s didn’t need to go to an SAE certified mechanic for fixing things, he could do it himself.

      I don’t see most women in this country being unable to make an abrupt return to an old way of life they are so proud to have unlearned and forgotten. My prediction is that many of them will go barking mad and return to the emotional state of 2 year olds. They will be thinking maybe that going full Karen on everyone will somehow be like a secret decoder call for the few males remaining that haven’t been psychologically castrated. They’ll hear her screaming in distress – a fair damsel that needs their help! They’ll be hoping that those men will come out of hiding and save them if they only go about screaming in public loud enough. It will take a long period of time for the females in the population to grow from 2 years old back into adults and understand in a mature way that they are no longer living in the 1st world. It’s gone and won’t be coming back. They are in the 3rd world now and will be required to learn new skills in order to survive. One skill they will need is the ability to work hard all day long in physically very uncomfortable circumstances. The new types of work being required might not be safe and some of it might involve a lot of pain. You’ll work in spite of the pain and you’ll learn to accept it as a part of your duties at work. Many will probably use suicide as a way to solve these transition problems most easily.

        woodchuck,

        yes, but I think most men will also have a serious meltdown and scream in distress.

        I think JM Greer coined the phrase “collapse now and avoid the rush” – not just suburbia, but at least 3 quarters of the population will lose their marbles. Generations raised on the expectation of abundant, affordable, guaranteed, God-given comforts, conveniences and perks. And only good at manipulating abstractions and pose as enlightened, hoping to remain or access the managerial class.

        One theory advanced to explain the Bronze Age Collapse was a “Systems Collapse”. Copper, but especially tin (necessary to make bronze) came from far away. Wars and piracy were able to disrupt the supplies of these materials once the “elite” societies became too complacent to defend their own interests. The “systems” which supported societies in the Western world collapsed and recorded history ceased for a while.

        We saw a localized mini version in post WW II Germany where formerly affluent hausfraus were reduced to salvaging bricks from bombed out buildings. But the the larger systems did not collapse because the US was there to bail them out. Sure, the madchens had to sell their bodies for a short while but before long their production of Volks Wagens and then Mercedes and Audis were right back up there.

        But what about a MAJOR systems collapse? Your 85% devaluation could possibly trigger just such an event. We are so DEPENDENT on techno/supply chain systems that most “adult” young people don’t even know how to milk a chicken.

        The chaos from a systems collapse in this country might result in huge swaths of our urban populations killing each other or dying of dysentery before they even had a chance to commit suicide. What would be left thereafter is anybodies guess but I think a major repopulation of North America by Mandarin speaking persons is not out of the question.

    Speaking of Barr, the prosecution in the January 6 case wants to use the fact that Trump’s own DOJ told him there was no election fraud of consequence as proof of what Trump knew, to prove he committed a felony.

    There is so much wrong with that, but when we are talking AG Barr and what he concluded about fraud, we are talking about a man who saw the proof that Trump was being impeached for Biden crimes, and said nothing.

    Also, Barr said he didn’t see something but he didn’t say he looked very hard.

    Also, the fraud does not have to be widespread to affect the outcome. In fact, it is better if it isn’t.

    If Barr actually does not know this, he was the wrong person to be doing the investigating.

    • Mick July 24, 2023 at 10:31 am #

      Trump has his own self to blame for ever hiring Barr in the first place. He’s as establishment as they come. His first loyalty has always been to the. He even looks like the Blob.

      And there’s his long on and off association with Jeffrey Epstein, going back to his father hiring Epstein to teach math at the prestigious Dalton School. Blob Barr also worked at a law firm who represented Epstein.

      forbes.com/sites/lisettevoytko/2019/07/09/bill-barr-wont-recuse-himself-from-epstein-sex-trafficking-case/?sh=6b3aed3d22f6

      Barr is a Bush Neo-con. Pure and simple. Trump was a fool to bring him in. If he had Bannon around this probably would’ve been avoided. But instead, Trump listened to his pencil neck geek son-in-law. Much of Trump’s problems are a result of his own stupidity and hard headedness.

      That claim is on a par with the shitlibs who profess that the fact that no judge would risk their lives by taking on an election fraud case proves that there was no election fraud.

      Jeez, it’s bad enough when random media slurpers make that claim, but a prosecutor?

      Alexander Mercouris is a lawyer, and he thinks this case is on a par with Henry VIII.

    • buckeyeman July 25, 2023 at 12:19 pm #

      Trump, in his defense, should subpoena Ruby Freeman and all the other poll workers from Fulton County. We all saw Ruby Freeman put the same stack of ballots through the same tabulator THREE TIMES.

      I don’t need Billy Barr to tell me there was no voter fraud when I saw it with my own eyes,

      Of course, Trump is too DEAD STUPID to do this or he would have had it done before the vote was certified. Just imagine Trump picking an aggressive young conservative from the ranks of the FBI and sending him to Georgia as his personal appointee to impound the voting machines, impound everyone’s cell phones, and interrogate UNDER OATH and RECORD all the poll workers.

      Ruby Freeman was caught ON TAPE counting the ballots three times. I saw it. YOU saw it. How could she explain it? SHE COULDN’T. Ergo, she would have almost certainly PLED THE FIFTH. Now, just imagine trying to certify Georgia’s electors when the poll workers are pleading the Fifth on how the votes were counted.

      For icing on the cake, imagine Trump granting “subject matter immunity” to one of the other poll workers. Such immunity removes the Fifth Amendment protection. Would young “LaTish’a” or “TeQ’an’ta” have been willing to go to jail rather than testify? I rather doubt it. But our genius President Trump squandered his last opportunity to cut through the Gordian Knot and chose instead to stomp his feet and tweet his displeasure.

    They could keep Joe in the basement for 18 months, juice him to the gills for one debate, and try to repeat. 2020. Of course, they’ll need to pair every whistleblower revelation with another indictment of Trump. But what the heck? It’s worked so far.

    Maybe President Harris is just too horrible to contemplate, even for the Blob.

    • cbeard July 24, 2023 at 5:15 pm #

      Hell, the blob put her there. We have had our noses rubbed in the stolen election of Biden, Harris. The American people just roll over and play possum. The deep staters think/know that they can do as they please with no repercussions. Another thing concerning the collapse of the dollar. With the prison population at the end of 2021 being 1,204,300. What happens there when the economy, law enforcement, and society in general goes further to hell than it already is. It may be possible to have some kind of recovery from all of this, but maybe not. Not without a complete, total crash and burn.

    Speaking of a debauched news media, however much we may hate the NYT and by extension everyone who works there, it isn’t enough.

    I’m referring to an op-ed and smear against RFK Jr. by one Sheryl Gay Stolberg, who actually said this:

    “Despite the theater, the hearing raised thorny questions about free speech in a democratic society: Is misinformation protected by the First Amendment? When is it appropriate for the federal government to seek to tamp down the spread of falsehoods?”

    Anybody who works for that rag has got to by now know they are working as a propagandist for a corrupt regime, or they are too stupid to even BE a reporter.

    Is there nothing these people won’t do for money?

    The slanted article also tried to give the impression that the hearings were about RFK Jr. being a racist.

      The Establishment is working hard to convince Americans that free speech is not a value we should uphold.

      The sad thing is that they have convinced a lot of people.

      Half of Millennials think that misgendering someone should be a criminal offense, for instance.

    • Islander July 25, 2023 at 4:48 pm #

      It wasn’t a question of “his name could not be questioned.”

      He was supposed to remain completely anonymous (to the public) and a great deal of effort was gone to to make sure that he did.

      E.g.,

      “For a town that leaks like a sieve, Washington has done an astonishingly effective job keeping from the American public the name of the anonymous “whistleblower” who triggered impeachment proceedings against President Trump — even though his identity is an open secret inside the Beltway. . . . . ”

      httpX://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2019/10/30/whistleblower_exposed_close_to_biden_brennan_dnc_oppo_researcher_120996.html

      His name was literally not to be mentioned for the public to know his identitiy. In light of what we know now about the fraudulence of both impeachments, it actually makes more sense. Because there must have been plenty of people who knew the guy was outright lying, and probably paid to do so.

    • Paula D July 26, 2023 at 12:25 pm #

      The way I remember it, they said his name at first, and then decided it was Top Secret.

      That is a new and different way of cover-up and censorship.

      Usually, they withhold information from the very beginning, or, they wait until the hoopla is over and then drop it down the Memory Hole.

      It was very strange to see the top down oppression rolled out in real time.
      Much like the trans thing, where even the conservative press uses incorrect pronouns, as ordered from the top. They might put a photo up, so that we can see how crazy it is for an obvious man to be called “she”, but they still do it.

          If you live in the country, there are very few other places to shop besides Walmart–at least, not unless you’re willing to drive a considerable distance and brave “city” (actually suburban) traffic. And country Walmarts are clean, pleasant, and safe, and full of polite, pleasant people. I won’t buy their meats or produce–both of which are incredibly bad. But I’ll buy their canned goods, dairy, Jiffy Seed-Starting kits, nursery plants, kitchenware, and the occasional pair of jeans. And sometimes motor oil.

          It’s only people who live in the city who won’t go to the city Walmarts. When one of my daughters lived in the city, she stopped going there because of all the tweakers and other sketchy people.

          I don’t know why Mr K has this weakness for definite predictions. He makes a lot of sense without them, explaining trends, pictures-in-pictures, doesn’t need them, nobody expects them or reads him for the prognostications, he could do without them…

          Yet, year after year…

          Could be tomorrow or never, or could not happen and something else happen instead, yet the description of a part of reality is still valid. A little vice, a pastime, like smoking or too much dessert, we all have them.

    The only real criticism I have of our talented Mr. Kuntsler is his belief that the GOP can fix this unGodly mess.

    Its Kabuki theater with the intent that the public think that there are rally two opposing political parties.

    Yet GOP following Dem administrations and via versa, nothing changes.

    • Beryl of Oyl July 24, 2023 at 10:49 am #

      I would have agreed with that completely, but this year I decided at some point that the Republicans at least aren’t as heavily inflltrated by communists.

      I saw this, from Emerald Robinson, yesterday on Twitter, and she agrees with me about the commies.

      “Democrats in Congress openly hectoring & censoring the scion of the Kennedy dynasty at a televised hearing is the most obvious sign of the death of liberalism in America.

      It’s over.

      They’re all communists now and they know it.”

        And who funded the Communists? The Capitalist did of course. It’s one system, heads and tails.

        For those who can’t follow a train of thought: That means the Republicans aren’t going to save us since they represent the Capitalist wing of the System.

        • cbeard July 24, 2023 at 5:40 pm #

          Yes, Liberalism, Conservatism, Capitalism, Communism, Democrat, Republican. Blah, blah. Still Jarek is correct in saying the Republicans nor Capitalism will save us.

          • Jarek July 24, 2023 at 7:52 pm #

            Yes, say anything but the salient point: Capitalism funded Communism and it’s one system, heads and tails.

            It’s no easy thing I admit. Both Russia and China have gotten off the hook: Russia into Fascism and China into National Socialism.

            Smaller examples are more easily seen: Such Companies funding BLM and the Trans. But historically, we can see examples just as clear of the West helping to set up Communist China and funding the Revolution in Russia. What happened later is more complex.

      I don’t think he ever said that the Republicans will fix this mess.

      I think that he points to the few honest people around who are trying to fix it, be they dem or rep.

      I, for one, am impressed with Matt Gaetz and RFK, Jr., for speaking up in this time when the Establishment is trying to criminalize free speech.

      Also, the front line doctors who have risked everything to tell the truth.

        Paula,
        The “establishment” controls news content. Bad press and invectives are not the issue…it is the lack of ANY notice that will cause the most harm to a thought, or movement, or candidate.

        • Paula D July 24, 2023 at 3:36 pm #

          I agree. I had absolutely no opinion about Trump in 2016, but when the entire msm started trashing him, I figured he must be all right.

          But if a candidate runs in a forest and the media doesn’t cover it, did it happen?

      • cbeard July 24, 2023 at 5:47 pm #

        I’m in agreement with you on the front line doctors, and RFK is impressive, but he would have to renounce any and all gun control and lgbtq bullshit before any sane people should vote for him. Actually it doesn’t matter much who is in the highest office. One man cannot fix this. It will take massive, unprecedented social change that will only happen with horrendous amounts of violence and suffering.

    Get ready for the “Tripledemic” hype:

    “Even as the nation is faced with blistering heat waves this summer, Dr. Mandy Cohen, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is already thinking ahead to cold and flu season this winter.

    “We’re going to have three bugs out there, three viruses: Covid, of course, flu and RSV,” Cohen said in an interview. “We need to make sure the American people understand all three and what they can do to protect themselves….

    …..Omicron XBB subvariants remain the most prevalent forms of Covid, though on Wednesday, the World Health Organization identified a new XBB version, the EG.5, as rising in prevalence around the world and in the U.S.

    It’s unclear what — if anything — the emergence of EG.5 means. The WHO noted there’s no evidence that it causes more severe illness. Cohen said that so far, the virus remains susceptible to Covid shots.”

    nbcnews.com/health/health-news/tripledemic-covid-rsv-flu-winter-cdc-rcna95448

    Of course, there is a vaxx for each virus, which we’ll be hearing about constantly by September, I’m sure.

    And it is safe to get all three! It’s twoo!

    • Paula D July 24, 2023 at 11:42 am #

      98% of Americans have had RSV by the time they are two years old, and are therefore immune.

      That is a fact which they have tried to put down the Memory Hole, so we just have to remember it by ourselves, like a nation of Winston Smiths.

      • elysianfield July 24, 2023 at 12:06 pm #

        Paula,
        Just finishing a book on virology, and it indicates that immunity offered by disease and vaccinations has a shelf life of approximately 5 years, wherein the protection then lessens.

        • Paula D July 24, 2023 at 3:44 pm #

          When was the book written? If it’s telling you that natural immunity “wears off”, I’m guessing it was written after 2020.
          Does it also tell you that there are more than two sexes? Cause that’s the “new biology” also.

          I can tell you that I was exposed to mumps as a child, and had a titer 40 years later that showed I was still immune.

          Same with chickenpox and measles.

          • elysianfield July 24, 2023 at 4:03 pm #

            ” Same with chickenpox and measles.”

            Paula,
            Same with shingles?

            “What usually triggers shingles?
            People develop shingles when the varicella-zoster virus, which causes chickenpox, reactivates in their bodies after they have already had chickenpox”~google search..

            More than two sexes? Relying on my distant memory, I would have to be convinced that there are even two.

          • Paula D July 24, 2023 at 6:39 pm #

            You don’t catch chickenpox again. The varicella virus has the ability to hide inside your cells, and yes, when your body is older, your immune system is weaker, and you are stressed, it can reemerge as shingles. It is not a new disease.

            Same as Epstein Barr virus. (Not the dudes, the virus.) It hides in your body for life, and can reactivate when your immune system is weakened.

            What year was your book written?

          • elysianfield July 24, 2023 at 7:23 pm #

            That surprises me.

      • SW July 24, 2023 at 1:34 pm #

        The new RSV vaccine is very expensive. The mortality rate from RSV is very low for children. I read (don’t know if it’s true) that the initial trials were bad news but they’re still pushing it. My youngest grandson had RSV 3 years ago, was hospitalized twice but is fine now. It can be scary when they have a bad case but I’m against yet another vaccine for kids for bugs they can get and get over with no side effects.

        • Paula D July 24, 2023 at 3:46 pm #

          In the 60s they tested a RSV vaccine, but it killed some kids, so they pulled it.

          That’s what they did back before the drug companies were immunized in 1986,

          Yeah, RSV can be bad for some infants. Better to keep infants out of daycare than to give them all shots, but that’s not how our system rolls, is it.

          • SW July 24, 2023 at 4:03 pm #

            That’s exactly what happened. He was in day care and in his little group of 10, five got sick with symptoms but two got very sick and had to be hospitalized. My guess is all ten got it but showed no symptoms.

            Mothers are made to feel guilty if they’re not working and “contributing” to the household and “using their education.” Plus, the moms who do stay at home are isolated and most live away from a family support group. It’s a hard situation for them and the kids end up in day care.

          • Paula D July 24, 2023 at 6:57 pm #

            Indeed. There are fixes for that, but they will not implement them.
            That shows that their expressed “concern” for the health of babies and children is a lie.
            They want to push the drugs.

      • megabeth July 24, 2023 at 3:12 pm #

        They were trying to scare people about RSV at the nursing home where I work, last year. RSV! So we were doing the droplet isolation kabuki with 90 y.o. asymptomatic people. The federal government demands it, on pain of losing CMS funding.

        • Paula D July 24, 2023 at 3:47 pm #

          That’s how you know it’s an agenda.

        • Paula D July 24, 2023 at 6:46 pm #

          Did you test the adults? I have tested probably hundreds of babies for RSV, but never an adult, because until this year, it was known that adults weren’t susceptible.

          When we tested sick babies, we did flu, RSV, and strep. The flu and RSV was one nasal swab, the strep was a throat swab.

          So I would do the nasal swab first. It hurts, so the babies would scream and cry, and then when their mouths were open, I would do the throat swab.

          Huh. So I was in the face of screaming babies with RSV (lots of times), spewing their RSV virions into my face, and I never got RSV again.

          Go figure.

          But now “scientists say” that you can get RSV again. Probably multiple times, amirite?

          Why do people believe the words of known liars?

        Too bad we can’t bottle up all this excess heat and save it for the winter months. Apparently, we can harness the power of wind and save some of that energy in batteries. Why can’t we do this with all the heat that is currently being wasted in the desert?

      I’m guessing that your idea of “doing good for the American people” consists mainly of allowing men into women’s bathrooms (even in schools), encouraging children to choose their gender or identify as a bunny rabbit, encouraging children to undergo “gender affirmation surgery” and use puberty blockers, freeing criminals to roam at large in our communities, allowing looting and shoplifting to go unpunished, allowing drugs and gang members (and everyone else in the world) to pour across our borders, and rejoicing in human trafficking. People should be free to own anyone they want, right? They should also be free to steal anything they want, burn down anything they want, and sell fentanyl to anyone they want. That’s what freedom’s all about, right? I know you cherish these freedoms and support Biden’s effort to advance them. Because that’s what America is all about. Well, that and clearing out (by killing them) all those pesky humans in Ukraine, so that Blackrock and the various other corporations to which Zelensky has sold off Ukrainian land can operate in freedom–that is, freedom from people who might object to having their country stolen. The American people are sure to benefit from all the billions spent in support of this.

    Another wonderful plateful of Slumville corruption served as always in Mr Kunstler’s inimitable and high style where the diseased entrails of the plat du jour are pored over and picked at with the scalpel of his wit and steady measure of his vintage erudition. Alas we have had this diet now for far too long and the state of poisoning and malnutrition exposed by these observations brings us no farther on the road to health nor even to a type of junk food satiety in the great US culinary tradition. We wait for solutions that are never coming, for wars that never end, for some semblance of consciousness from the protoplasmic masses if not for some action on the part of those with the guns in the background that skulk in the debauched edifice of what once was (at least for some) a passable democracy but today for almost all humanity is nothing more than a rotten corpse in the whited sepulcher of what “America” (sic) represents for the rest of a world sick of everything that Slumville, USSA represents.

        Speaking of Indians, a vignette of American life-

        A warm summer Sunday evening, people are indoors after the day’s activities, relaxing before the start of another work week.

        On a quiet side street, one household, relative newcomers, is having yet another of their increasingly frequent weekend parties.

        Out back, in the garage, with multiple guests arriving, and rather loud music.

        Loud enough that the neighbors can all hear, much too loud for the people on either side.

        It isn’t good music either. It keeps stopping, starting, increasing and decreasing in volume.

        No one can be enjoying it, the guests must have to shout over it.

        After a while, the music seems to change. As it turns out, the next door neighbors to the partiers, who recently installed large stereo speakers on their open front porch, have had quite enough of the Bollywood or whatever it is.

        American music thunders out into the night. What is that tune? It’s Metallica! Nothing Else Matters.

        The neighbors observe guests starting to leave. Metallica isfollowed by Black Sabbath (it is, after all, Sunday).

        When the new music comes to an end, theparty in the garage is MUCH quieter.

        ‘Merica, Baby!

            Ok, are you saying that radically different ethnic groups don’t belong in the same polity – with their music being a de facto symbol of that fact?

            If so, I agree with you.

          Bhangra. Indian dance music. More or less the soundtrack to Bend It Like Beckham.

          I was once a keyboardist in an “event” band — in this case playing Christmas parties given by the management for the tenants at a large apartment complex. We were playing mostly straight ahead American pop and throwing in a Christmas song here and there. Over the years the complex had become more and more South Asian; there was/is a university in the neighborhood and probably all of these Asian tenants were students. We used to put on CDs for “break music” and I got the bright idea to bring some from my Bhangra collection. When I put it on a roar came up from the crowds and the Asians began to do their thing to the beat of the music — having been demurely polite and uninterested until that point.

          In a minute the manager who had hired us ran out and said “Take that off!!!!! We hear it all the time around here way too loud and we’re sick of it!!!!”

    The financial markets are going to tank DEBT, the only card they hold? Are we actually to believe the markets won’t be paused to maintain “market viability”? The western markets can plunge without the derivative markets following in hot pursuit?

    more like: the personal ruin of every household in the west and every western institution.

      I first encountered these types of females back in the early 50’s. They were active in churches and schools of the day. One of them I remember well had been active in promoting feminism, women’s suffrage, women’s rights etc. She was almost a Carry Nation type with all the sense of humor of a garden slug. Elvis terrified her during her last few senior years, and that happened because she’d been gifted one of those newfangled tv sets in ’56. She was a gray haired termagent and harpie and had a local group of female orcs she’d hang out with. They were all active in various local womens and church organizations. They were out virtue signalling even then. Their husbands all made enough money that these women didn’t need to work. They spent their time with their noses up in the air and busybodying about town thanks to the fact there were blue collar guys working for their husbands. The work that these guys did ultimately made it possible for the harpie liberal women of the day to have the spare time they enjoyed.

      These types of women wanted boys to be indoors studying and under complete female control. Starting with age six all boys are to be confined indoors for at least six hours and under the control of a harpie female. Male influences are nowhere to be found. The soccer moms are all ok with this. Elementary education in general is ok with this. A process of psychological castration begins that continues on all the way to PhD level. Until we stop doing this we’ll be gender confused and mentally ill. The rest of world sees this and are laughing at us. We are a joke.

          Nations are born in blood – just like babies. – Jarek

          ==========

          It was just a day or two ago I read that babies are actually born as clean as a whistle. Only if an episiotomy was performed (snipping the woman’s peep to create a larger opening) would there be blood present.

          Thus, you stand corrected.

          Perhaps Paula D will confirm what I’ve said.

          • Paula D July 24, 2023 at 7:05 pm #

            I don’t know about clean, but there is not supposed to be blood with birth, until afterwards.

            If there is blood, it could mean a placenta abruptio or placenta previa, which are life-threatening for both mother and baby.

            Babies are born wet and slimy, though.

            Occasionally, a baby is born with the amniotic sac intact. In the womb, a baby floats around in a fluid-filled membrane. Usually (but not always), this breaks at the onset of labor, whereupon you get a bunch of fluid running down your leg. This is what people mean when they say a pregnant woman’s “water” has broken.

            Back in the day, a baby who was born with the amniotic membrane intact was said to be “born with a caul,” and this was considered a sign that the child would grow up to be a distinguished person in some way. (One of my kids was “born with a caul.”)

            This is probably rare in a hospital birth, since hospitals will break a woman’s “water” to speed up labor, if it hasn’t already broken.

            There are lots and lots of books about the birth process and how to deliver a baby. Home birthers usually familiarize themselves with all the how-to literature they can lay their hands on.

            A good book for guys is “Emergency Childbirth.” It is a little manual for policemen, firemen, abulance personnel, taxicab drivers, and airline personnel–or basically anyone who might at some time have to deliver a baby on their own. It is very practical and straighforward and tells you all you need to know, but without telling you all the stuff you probably won’t need to know. While it is not likely that you’ll ever be in this situation, one of my female friends once had to deliver a baby. She knew nothing about it beforehand. There isn’t much to it, in a normal birth. Obstetricians used to be rather contemptuously called “baby catchers” by other doctors, because that was usually about the extent of their involvement.

          • Paula D July 27, 2023 at 7:42 pm #

            I can’t picture either Jarek or Q ever volunteering to deliver a baby.

            Like you say, if there is no one there able or willing to catch it, the woman can just push it out, and there it is. Wet and slimy.

        Their husbands all made enough money that these women didn’t need to work.

        Ah, the good old days. Long before I was born. Time was, all a man had to do to buy a home and support a family was to reliably show up to work five days a week. And not gamble, or drink it all away, I suppose.

        My grandpa essentially pulled a lever at a chemical factory in St. Louis for 35 years after WWII. He and my grandma raised three kids, and he retired early with a good half mil in the bank back in the late 80’s.

        Grandma was into Women’s Lib big time, but maintained her sense of humor. (She’s still kicking, by the way. 99 years old, can’t remember shit, living in a memory care facility…but still living large, and never really had to worry about essentials, as he went to his job five days a week…reliably.)

        Time was, the neighborhood milk man or the street sweeper could do the same for his family, albeit with less leisurely accoutrements.

        My dad and mom did fine (both worked full time), but that 42k salary in 1984 didn’t go as far as it used to.

        Now (according to a recent poll), most Americans don’t feel “secure” unless they bring in nearly 300k/yr. And they’re still basically broke, too.

        We’ve stretched this lifestyle expectation to the limit. Every way to pull another dollar out of the masses who show up to work five days a week has been exploited.

        It’s long since time to stock up on flour, rice, and baking powder…oddly enough, gambling and drinking it all away are still on the “not recommended” list.

        • Anthea July 27, 2023 at 1:36 pm #

          @ MrMangoOnMyShoulder:

          The Amish still raise large families with stay-at-home-wives. I think that many people could still raise a family on a single income, if they were willing to make the necessary sacrifices. Meaning that they couldn’t live in a McMansion in a snooty neighborhood.

          My parents and the families in our neighborhood when I was growing up led pretty austere lives. I don’t think any family had more than one car. Most people had one TV and one telephone. Hardly anyone had AC–so mom did the ironing with an electric fan next to her in summer. A few people had large gardens and did a lot of canning. One family on our block had a milk cow and raised a pig some years. One of the moms sewed most of the family’s clothes. One family raised four pigs every year, plus a variety of poultry (sometimes turkeys).

          I can somewhat understand why people aren’t willing to live that way these days. On the other hand, I’m not sure it would be any harder than the way people live these days.

    At the very highest level the plan long seems to have been the take down of the US. Supranationally. That constitution and all those well armed folk who think they are free…. just a problem. So kill the manufacturing, divide the population, crank enormously on immigration, and some decades later the US is toothless and failing. It was a good plan, compliance by idiot CEOs and the like was excellent, the population is stupid fat and bewildered, and streams of immigrants are coming in to put the final touches on the fall…..

    The remarkable coordination of terrible covid responses on a global scale really opened my eyes. Prior I was of the view that while there were likely some inbred vampire squids operating with great power above the nation state, I did not think this monolithic.

    Now I question even the war, I note Sputnik V (russian covid jab) is a spike jab (like J+J) and they had, quite some time back, over 60% uptake. Perhaps the war is just a variant of we have always been at war with eastasia?

        I disagree near completely.

        The US is being taken down by the Vsquids because it was or is squarely in the way of the general destruction of the nation state as is ongoing everywhere.

        The US has a long tradition of freedom. Whether real or not it was a cherished heirloom of the citizenry, and many business, thought, and political leaders too. The engineering prowess and manufacturing strength were second to none. Well behaved, well educated folk literally everywhere garnering nobel prizes and introducing innovation, in 1972 a family could have a single breadwinner, own a house, put the kids through college and buy a new car every 3 years. Just astounding wealth.

        Behind the scenes however it was never really such, at least not as I describe. But strong bones were there….. the evil was resident in the shadows and not in the hearts of common folk or even your average CEO. Strong bones…. and not dead yet despite the Vsquids best efforts. We’ll see. Godspeed to my american cousins. A republic if you can keep it.

            Reply getting rather late.

            I do not believe it is in their minds. I posit a reality where only 5 or 10k Vsquids and top minions, worldwide, know the whole genocidal build back better great reset dystopia, in all its malignant detail.

            While a typical US general, or CEO, may be a run of the mill corrupted soul, their understanding does not extend to the whole ‘kill off most of the world and enslave the rest’ plan.

            Even a cartel boss might pause at the reality of the Vsquid master plan.

            So I do not believe in full on conscious evil in the majority, vast majority of folk whether ‘locally corrupt’ or not. Its a hopeful thought.

            Imagine, if you will, a body politic where the corruption is only skin deep, where corrupt and mendacious officials, politicians, CEOs, thought leaders, are NOT ‘in on’ the full on genocidal reality as is unfolding according to the Vsquids long held fantasies of 500 million souls left, all enslaved, and just a thin and tiny veneer of insiders.

            Even a corrupt bought general making hay on death in the Ukraine might pause if they understood the death of billions is the goal. Our hope, the Vsquids greatest fear?

    One remembers that great Cherokee Chief who counseled against Blacks being acknowledged as members of the Tribe, saying, “Those Freedmen will suck you dry”. The Tribe votes against the Blacks, but the Blacks protested the decision and won in Court I believe.

    Blacks trump Indians in our System. Hell, they trump everyone except the Tribe. It’s a damnable question since more Blacks equal more political power – but less money for American Blacks. All Blacks want access to the fruits of White slavery. More Blacks will come if African Blacks can profit from it. Will it be extended to the Blacks of Papuan New Guinea? The Aborigines of Australia as well?

      Good point. RFK, despite his knowledge of the Vax, seems to think that covid was both real and deadly. If it was real, it was just another variety of the common cold, at least for most. Perhaps the severe form mutated down quickly?

      The best way to preserve Israel would have been a fake disease and a fake vax for them. But it seems they have been given the real Vax.

        The Jews who are among the powerful elites have always been willing to throw ordinary Jews under the bus. I sometimes think that ordinary Jews are, like blacks, residents of “the plantation”–except it’s a different plantation. The people who claim to be working to advance their interests are generally doing the exact opposite.

        For one thing, you can see that many people now identify far leftist ideology with Jews–even though the “ordinary Jew” has historically been a conservative small businessman and, in the Midwest, usually a Republican. He is almost invariably a hard-headed, practical realist–except for matters pertaining to Judaism and his Jewish identity.

        If you think about it, if there were some kind of plot to promote antisemitism, there could hardly be a better way to go about it than by making Jews the most prominent spokesmen for liberalism, sexual deviancy, and Hollywood filth. Maybe the Jewish elites want the Jews to be persecuted–or even dead.

    Whatever does or does not happen with Resident Biden is irrelevant at this point. Either way, the Deep Dark State will keep dragging our Nation and it’s hurting and beleaguered populace deeper in to the Globalist Collective Sewer Swamp Pit.

    If We the People actually wanted to exert some form of influence over our Nation and its future (and our own) we would be allowed to select who get to run the Deep Dark State. But of course… that would never happen because We the People are given no such respect or choice in the matter and all the Dark State Crawlers are all alike anyway. You know – all that (stuff) we hear about that always ‘floats to the top’? So, not much of a choice for us there, either.

    “How does that happen? The 25th Amendment… How the Blob deals with his successor, the distressing Ms. Harris, is another bridge to cross.”

    Well, the first order of business will be to issue top-grade noise-cancelling head phones to everyone who has to physically be around her. Humans were not designed to be around that level of endless cackling and inane conversation punctuated by almost perpetual smirking and elementary-school-style giggling.

    But when she is installed… The Wokesters will hail this as just another great day for Wokesterism and the dismantling of a Once Great Nation. Only problem with that is that no one other than She (and her fellow terminally-Woke) will be smiling and giggling. The rest of us will continue to ponder where did things begin to all go wrong and what the hell did we ever do to deserve to live out our precious Earthly years in the middle of – THIS?

    No one ever promised us a Rose Garden. But neither should we be stuck with nothing around us but… Thorns. And cackling.

      If the deep brain stimulation they give Joe on weekends for his Lewy Body Dementia (look it up, it fits all his behaviors) stops working entirely, they’ll just give Kamala a makeover.
      Put the hair up or cut it shorter. Maybe glasses now and then, when the mood is serious.
      Jackets with tailored skirts, just reaching to the bottom of the knee. Expensive solid color, near-neutral fabric. Kitten heel pumps. NO laughing, strict scripts that she follows to the word. Minimal questions. Drops the voice a tad lower, no slang. Always an entourage around her doing the West Wing stride.
      –> Right now her job is to specifically be dumber than Joe. <–
      She's supposed to make him look more competent. "Geez, but if we impeach him we're stuck with Harris, better not"
      A feature, not a bug. When it stops being useful it will go away.
      IF it stops being useful. I say Biden stays unless he drops right dead.

        WayfaringStranger: “If the deep brain stimulation they give Joe on weekends for his Lewy Body Dementia… stops working entirely, they’ll just give Kamala a makeover… Right now her job is to specifically be dumber than Joe.”

        These two caricatures are clear evidence to anyone honestly watching of just how irrelevant those two ‘Offices’ of ‘High-Level Public Service’ truly are (and have been for a good while now). No one in their right mind believes that either of them are in control of anything – much less their own selves.

        The fact that They are ‘where’ They appear to be in ‘Those Esteemed Offices’ is just more proof of how deeply and disingenuously We the People are being trolled and dissed and made fun of. No attempt in the slightest is being made any more to make things look believable.

        It’s bad that we are being trolled like this. And it might be even worse in seeing how so many of We the People seem to be quite fine with this kind of thing going on and becoming our National default ‘leadership’ program.

    The key elements of potential U.S. economic and political collapse are repeated endlessly.

    But what are the indications of cultural collapse? Is this process largely independent of political and economic instability or do these processes go hand in hand?

    Are there also stages of cultural collapse?

    Maybe back in the 1950s one could argue that American culture still exhibited a fairly robust obedience to moral obligations, demands, or constraints.

    Maybe by the 1980s one could argue that the inadequacy of the counter-culture of the 1960s was on full display–that the assumption/belief that some kind of innate human innocence would prevail or gradually emerge once our character structures were liberated from any real moral constraints–appeared dead in the water.

    Maybe by the early 2020s one could argue that the carriers of impulse and desire were now largely in charge of our culture.

    What does it mean if the old moral taboos, including those within Christianity, are never coming back?

    Is it possible to have a society without moral authority?

    If there is no moral authority, is their only power (coercive discipline on a massive scale) but without moral constraint?

    • Disaffected July 24, 2023 at 3:33 pm #

    • JohnAZ July 24, 2023 at 7:46 pm #

      The source of moral authority is God.

      The loss of moral authority is the denial of God’s presence in society.

      Read the Bible, you do not want to mess with God.

      The decline of the USA has all the signs of God “looking the other way”.

      If you believe like I do that the creation of the USA was a God given occurrence, then we have just been the last of a long line of failures.

      • Edge Lord July 24, 2023 at 8:14 pm #

        The source of moral authority is people.

        Their conscience, but mostly their fears.

        Their basic needs codified.

        The people invented god to put the fear of god into those they feared.

        Not exactly morality at work when fear is keeping people in line. Fear of god.

        You want more people afraid to be evil
        When we need more people less inclined to be evil

        We are not the last in a long line of failures.

        Agreed Jarek.

        The government regulation has created cronyism . It is the government that tries to increase its power.

        The loss of God in government is a main cause.

        All avenues are evil right now, there may be no way out except the collapse and resurrection.

        What form can that take?

        • Jarek July 25, 2023 at 12:32 pm #

          Well we can agree that far: All is lost without virtue.

          But we immediately deviate: How can a system (Capitalism) that only cares about profit ever foster human virtue?

          I take my stand in the Vedas. Not all human beings are the same. And the businessman qua businessman is not one of the higher ones. Some of the higher ones may be in business of course. And alas, some of the lower ones worm their way into government and the church.

          But in general, the higher must guide (not destroy as Marx and Mao said) the lower. And that means keeping the lower types out of guardianship positions.

        Where did he come from?
        Just like that, out of the blue, comes an unknown individual, let alone a candidate, who miraculously shoots to #2 in no time.

        He says all the right things. Pun intended, but they are the right sort of things Trump says. He is red-pilled but sugarcoated. More palatable than The Don.

        But again, he says what Trumpsters want to hear. Just like that.
        A man whose education was funded by (a) Soros, opened businesses and facilities in China, was named a young global leader by the WEF, well, he just joins the dance, just like that.

        Now, it may not be saying much, leapfrogging the likes of the human tumor Christie, What’s-his-name Scott, and the anthropomorphized fallen timber better known as Mike Pence, but he is now ahead of DeSantis, the human equivalent of a black hole where charm disappears.

            He’s got his explanations
            It was a scholarship, who wouldn’t take the money?
            The WEF nominated me, I forced them to recall their nomination.

            These may or may not be true.

            But what is definitely true is that he is here from nowhere and the media criticism has been scant and mild.

            When they get rid of Trump they know they need someone that holds similar positions, ostensibly, to serve as a release valve.

          Thankee, E.L.

          And H/T to your dissection of the glib ro-BOT.

          Many if not most are on a hero hunt, fraught with a quiet unacknowledged desperation for an easy way out of a problem that is much too big and institutionalized for one person’s efforts to change anyway.

          And it’s a house of many ill-lit rooms because they like it that way. It is their operating environment where thrive deception, extortion and backstabbing. Murder too.

          I’m just glad (encouraged) that even with all of their throwing shade and having the keys to everything—being professionally employed at it after all—that glimpses of the truth still get through so we can still be dutifully outraged, that we continue to question their actions, and shine our lights against their enterprise while picking up new stalwarts to our cause of the common citizen.
          Think “Fanfare for the Common Man.”

          What we have learned about the power of these Three Letter agencies is according to them they no longer are required to play with anything resembling a rule book. The magic words “National Security” have become their get-out-of-jail-free card. They have become far too assured of their place in the power pantheon. They make and break Presidents. Publicly, ffs!
          And where are the courts? Where is the Department of Justice?

          We should have paid attention back when GW Bush called the Constitution “just an old piece of paper” or words to that effect.
          They’ve since marched us mostly complacently to this place from where we now call out to each other seeking each other’s strength to keep on keeping on.

          So many forces for the ages on a collision course right here in our time. Bandits have taken over the White House, the Congress is on a military intel industrial pharmaceutical leash, too chickenshit to follow the Constitution, the Supremes are… are…
          Welcome to Clusterfuck Nation. We’ve really, truly done it this time.

I don’t care about looks, warmth, whether they are telegenic, whether they are a good speaker, I simply don’t care. I look at their track record in life, I look at what their positions are and what they are promising to do, and I look at the likelihood of them being able to keep any of their promises.

The really sad thing is that Ruth Handler’s original 1959 creation seemed to be (partially) about empowerment and different standards of beauty (although I think all the dolls were thin). But you could be an astronaut!

            A lot of modern “music” and “literature” is the same way. We know that the “book deal” is often a money-laundering scam, but much of modern literature and popular music is deliberately aimed at destroying Western culture and civilization–although good books and good music are still out there. A lot of very good books are tainted with some obligatory DIE theme, even at that.

            I have also read (I don’t know where) that some modern authors are not authors at all, but what you would call a “brand.” That is, books are churned out in a formula manner by ghost writers and published under the name of the author whose name is the “brand.”

            I don’t read lot of modern literature, since I stopped going to our local book club, but I’ve seen some examples of this–or what appear to be examples. Barbara Kingsolver’s “Poinsonwood Bible” does not appear to me to be written by the same person as were her later novels, which I would call pure “formula” books that are maybe just a notch above Harlequin Romances. (Or maybe not.) Maybe once you establish your name-recognition in the book world (or the New York Times has provided you with a niche and a candle), you can stop writing and let other people do it.

    ” You’d be surprised how many of the voting lemmings don’t know about Clinton’s sale of missile technology to China for campaign contributions. ”

    — Tuco22

    I just found out.

    ( I have never had the legal right to vote , so I guess I technically get to avoid the , ” voting Lemmings ” label . )

    But I’m not remotely surprised.

    I never really paid much attention to Clinton , my thoughts were absorbed in things that happened earlier , around the time of the ” Reagan Revolution ” .

    At the time my reaction to the United States offshoring its industry was , ” Have you lost your fucking mind ? ”

    Surprisingly ( ? ) it wasn’t until roughly 20 years later that I started to think that offshoring your industry equated to a form of treason.

    If there is any validity in such a characterization , then whatever Clinton sold China amounts to an after – the – fact betrayal years after the Titanic of Treason had already sailed.

      Clinton was the face needed for the WTO and NAFTA.
      Who do you want selling that to the easily influenced Americans, George H. Bush or Bill Clinton.
      Offshoring HAD to be sold by the Democrats, y’know the working man’s party.

    Just got home from watching “Sound of Freedom”.

    All God’s children are not for sale!!!!!

    I put a challenge out to this blog for every soul on it to go see this movie and wait to watch Cavazeil’s (sp) talk at the end.

    I want to remind everyone that part of the source of the evil in this movie is the Mob running the government of this country. There is more slavery today than any other time in history.

    Any one who believes that an open border is proper is a contributor to this evil. Jim wants everyone to see this movie. It was produced five years ago and forces, which he did not ID, have been fighting its release since.

    You think you have had bad vibes about the Democrats and their fighting the wall up to now.

    Go see the movie, it will crystallize your feelings toward the evil elements of this country. Maybe it might change a few votes.

    • Jarek July 24, 2023 at 7:59 pm #

      Mary thinks the Mob funded the movie, making it into a Limited Hangout.

        • MaryQueen July 24, 2023 at 9:41 pm #

          I posted that the producers of the movie actually do have ties to the same organizations that traffic. That’s just facts, people can do with them what they will. I asked the question if it was a limited hangout. Seems it could be.

          The position of people pointing this out is that not only the producer ties, but also the fact that the movie shows trafficking but doesn’t name names, which is typical of most of the limited hangout stuff.

          If you don’t name names, then nothing happens… therefore they could feel comfortable putting the movie out there. That’s how that works.

          Some of the NGOs that are taking donations for this stuff are tied to the people doing it, that’s been known for a long time.

        • Jarek July 25, 2023 at 12:41 pm #

          BRH is wrong. Who knew such a thing was possible?

          I did.

          Btw, Mary has studied this stuff deeply. And the evil ones are very clever. She is often right – even though she often goes too far, assuming full knowledge to all “actors”. Is there any evidence the movie makers are corrupt? I don’t think she has provided any. Are people tasked with stopping traffickers actually traffickers themselves or running cover for them? She has provided evidence of that.

      • JohnAZ July 24, 2023 at 8:22 pm #

        Anyone who sees this movie and then supports the open border is evil by definition.

        Right now, the Democratic Party nationwide and the RINOs of the Deep State who criticize the wall are the vanguard of the evil.

        Mary is not amongst that group.

        • MaryQueen July 24, 2023 at 9:45 pm #

          Yes. I am not among that group.

          I pointed out that the producers have dubious ties to people who are traffickers. That’s not an opinion, it’s fact. Sad but true.

          However, I don’t claim to know their motives, just that it is curious. One of the people whose commentary and work I often read is adamant that many of the backers are also traffickers. Their aim is to get it out into the public but not name names, as I responded to BRH above. I saw sufficient proof that producers are tied to the Clinton Foundation, for instance.

          I also never trust Hollywood folks or anything that is touted by the mainstream media (for instance, the movie is at #3 or so I read, which is not possible if it had been blacked out by the media).

          In any case, it’s worth a discussion. I hate knowing that the movie might not have 100% good intentions or have been co-opted by the evil elites, but that might be the case.

      JohnAZ,

      Thanks for posting this! I’ve posted several times about the movie, which I saw on the pre-release date of July 3rd. It really is worth seeing.

      The movie was finished in 2019 and was sitting on 21st Century Fox’s shelves when Disney bought them also in 2019. Disney let the movie continue sit on the shelf.

      Angel Studios bought the film early this year and released it with a pretty paltry marketing budget. I’ve also read that Goya Foods helped out, but I’ve read nothing else that confirms this.

      Its a very well made film about a horrific societal issue and should be supported.

    “US Meat May Cause Next Pandemic”

    Headline in USA Today.

    Poorly regulated meat industry is the reason.

    Note how “the next pandemic” has been “normalized.”

    If the US meat industry is indeed poorly regulated, then it seems to me THAT should be the headline.

    I did a search for the headline and got this:

    “The next pandemic could spring from the US meat supply, new report finds. The next global pandemic could come from the United States. That’s the sobering message of a report from Harvard Law School and New York University, examining how humans, livestock and wild animals interact here.”

    Why is the Harvard Law School doing research on meat regulations? What is the message re “humans, livestock, and wild animals ” interactions?

    Why is this suddenly a problem now?????
    Looks like some kind of preprogramming.

    I wonder what Alan Savory, the fellow who uses livestock to ecologically degraded grasslands (by means of planned grazing) and simultaneously produce high-quality meat would have to say about this?

    • thirdcoastlegend July 24, 2023 at 9:21 pm #

          But his last name is Savory. And given the subject matter is almost seems too coincidental. Could they be making us think they are putting mrna materials in beef when in reality they are actually doing something else?

          • Paula D July 25, 2023 at 4:03 pm #

            It’s a different subject. The dude talking about the possibility of meat contamination is not Savory.

            Savory is a guy who advocates for intensive grazing to restore grasslands and conserve water.
            Islander brought him up to contrast him to the one predicting a meat-induced pandemic.

        One of my neighbors is a big fan of Alan Savory and uses his rotational grazing methods to raise sheep–with great success. My neighbor is an interesting guy. He’s one of those fundamentalist Christians who believe the earth is only 6,000 years old, and is the son of Missionaries to some place in South America. So he spent much of his childhood living in a grass shack and speaks the Wai-Wai language.

        I think he has some kind of engineering background, as he has rigged up some mechanized devices for moving the sheep around automatically while he’s at work.

        He also gives terrible directions. I went out to visit him once, and had to pry every particular of his location out of him. As in, “Okay, which way do I turn when I come to the corner where the old windmill used to be?” There was no street address for the place, and after I got to what I believed to be his location, there was no dwelling anywhere around. Just open fields and distant woods. So I drove around for awhile in 100° heat (and no AC in the car) looking for some sign of a house. Turns out, it was WAY back in the distant woods that were off on the horizon. (He had not mentioned that.) I finally gave up. Then a friend of his called me and asked if I had forgotten that we were going to meet up.

        He lives in a strawbale house that he built for a cost of about $5,000, has no running water, cooks on a Coleman stove (which also provides some winter heat), and uses a composting toilet of the more primitive kind. (Some composting toilet systems are quite fancy.) He is happy as a pig in mud. He also has a good job and makes good money, so he does not live this way out of necessity. A likeable, highly skilled, industrious, and interesting guy.

He got into a conflict with a White woman who got the best of him. He said bitterly, I’m ninety pounds of nothing.

          Yes. They often know things that other people don’t know at the expense of forgetting what ordinary people know.

          They don’t want people to watch the movie. That Islander thinks they do, reminds me of a guy who thought Hitler was Jewish and that Nazism was a Jewish plot.

          But it IS true that the Jews came out on top, using the fact of a White nation trying to defend itself against Internationalism as proof that the Jews are the best people in the world and the chosen leaders of humanity. Most people here believe that to some degree or at least conform to the taboo of never speaking about the Jews. That RFK did so is proof of his evil for some. For others, like Beryl and Islander, it simply isn’t possible since they’ve already put him on a pedestal. Thus they deny their very eyes and ears – or simply lie about it.

          Judging from the trailer alone – the movie seems to focus on far away places and the trafficking of brown kids. Thus the White Savior complex is strengthened. What about our kids being taken? The big villain seems to be a Southeastern Asian lady, with a great evil face – good acting I hope.

          The old saying (very true) that any publicity is good publicity perhaps. Look at Trump’s campaign in 2016.

        Islander,

        Your second link worked fine.

        No, I have no intention of supporting chipping kids as a way to combat trafficking.

        I found clip #5 the most interesting. The narrator says the child trafficking industry has become bored and their new fetish is trans kids. She talks about how the effect of confusing kids about their sexuality, encouraging kids to go around their parents for gender affirming care, and taking puberty blockers all make trans kids easier and more profitable targets for traffickers.

        It never even crossed my mind that puberty blockers make the child more saleable for more years. Duh.

        The speaker in clip #5 was supporting Gays Against Grooming and advocating for people to go see The Sound of Freedom.

      People are going way too far down the rabbit hole, except the White Rabbit is not there.

      If you remember the Mel Gibson film, not the one where he is a suicidal cop with a mullet living in an airstream above Malibu, but something, something, torture the Christ, the advanced marketing was telling everyone that this is the movie “they don’t want you to see”

      They even had people people howling about blood libel and hate inciting, and all the tropes.

      Worked wonders.

      May have broke records.

      There is a lot of money to be made in (scarcity) not wanting to sell one something.

        Mainstream theatres are mostly refusing to show it. You’re missing a lot here.

        The Passion of the Christ was shown in theatres. The Tribe was very bitter about that. Some of them care about more than just money you see. In that they’re superior to White businessmen for the most part.

        • Islander July 25, 2023 at 1:37 pm #

          “You are missing a lot here.”

          Really? Your synapses must have misfired so that you said “You are” instead of “I am.”

            Their greed is getting the best of them, perhaps. AMC was running it but harassing patrons by trying to refund their tickets and if they showed up, by not running the air conditioning in the theatre it was playing in.

            Do you deny that many hated the Passion of the Christ? Yet it was a huge hit. The latter would have banned if they could but it got thru because of greed.

            Sin sells? So does virtue, Islander!

      • MaryQueen July 26, 2023 at 10:38 am #

        Mel hangs out with people who are traffickers, sorry.

        Hollywood is a big smokescreen.

    I consider myself to be in the political equivalent of the Kuiper Belt. And yet still miraculously sometimes sundry somebodies can hear my distant yelling lol. I do admit that I am experiencing difficulty in envisioning the removal of the installed crepuscular gloom from the WH. But since he was installed he can surely be uninstalled and placed in the recycle bin I suppose. Gosh, look at what happened to Obama’s personal chef.

    • tucsonspur July 25, 2023 at 4:31 am #

      I feel that I’m politically equivalent to Saturn’s rings, shattered into a billion bits but still beautiful to look at. : ) I will throw off the rings of despair and gaze upon Saturn ever so mysterious and fair.

          Little known fact, our very own Puck is actually a moon orbiting Uranus. Who knew?

            One Chinese guy was injured in a car accident and two dozen girlfriends showed up at the hospital. None of them knew about any of the others. Imagine the planning, the emotional, mental, and physical(?) capacity involved in all of this. Who says East Asians aren’t one of the higher races?

            Perhaps it’s like that. If so, I’m sure she loves all of us in one way or another. Don’t come between her and her Pucky Wucky in other words. What to speak of lil t…..

            Turn America over to Jack Ma, founder of Ali Baba, and he would have it on solid footing in six months.

            In Singapore, the cop on his beat will point to a piece of paper on the street, and order a passing citizen to pick it up. He’s not saying you littered and that you are a criminal. He’s just directing you to your civic duty. If you refuse, then yes, you are a criminal.

            Song of the Witches: “Double, double toil and trouble”
            BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
            (from Macbeth)

            Double, double toil and trouble;
            Fire burn and caldron bubble.
            Fillet of a fenny snake,
            In the caldron boil and bake;
            Eye of newt and toe of frog,
            Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
            Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
            Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,
            For a charm of powerful trouble,
            Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

            Double, double toil and trouble;
            Fire burn and caldron bubble.
            Cool it with a baboon’s blood,
            Then the charm is firm and good.

            Jarek: Personally I love bubbles. I feel carbonation is a drug and I partake via cooled fluids.

            Double, double toil and trouble;

            On the wall above the stove in the house I grew up in my mother painted this same Shakespeare quote.

    ‘Ok, John. If you don’t want Government running herd on the Banks and Corporations, then it can be Big Church. We can be a Theocracy.’ J

    ‘Agreed Jarek.

    The government regulation has created cronyism . It is the government that tries to increase its power.

    The loss of God in government is a main cause.

    All avenues are evil right now, there may be no way out except the collapse and resurrection.

    What form can that take?’ John

    TS
    Baloney. Most all religions are fantasies created to sooth the psyche, make money, and have power.

    ‘There is no greater social evil than religion. It is the cancer in the body of humanity. Human credulity and superstition, and the need for comforting fables, will never be extirpated, so religion will always exist, at least among the uneducated. The only way to manage the dangers it presents is to confine it entirely to the private sphere, and for the public domain to be blind to it in all but one respect: that by law no one’s private beliefs should be allowed to cause a nuisance or an injury to anyone else.’
    ~A. C. Grayling

    All thinking men are atheists. ~ Ernest Hemingway

    Maybe the lavender mafia can run things. Ha!

    How about Judaism? The Jews already have a good start on controlling things!

    The key that too many can’t seem to find, let alone turn is spirituality.

    Shalom.

      I hereby announce my candidacy for High Priest of the world. My basic qualification is that I’m Jewish. As such, I already control a large part of the Earth, so why not?

      Oh, btw, I demand, er, request, a campaign donation of $100 from each of my many supporters. Tucsonspur, I hereby appoint you my campaign manager. Just don’t dare to run off with the funds, because as you know, us Jews have our eyes everywhere.

        Todah Rabah! I dare not run off with even a Jewish bankroll!

        I’ll have the Israelis showering you with shekels, the gentiles will make you glitter with gold!
