Do you still doubt that the federal bureaucracy and the elected government parasitically attached to it seek to harm the people they rule (i.e., us) by any means necessary? They’re still pushing Covid “vaccines” in a futile effort to eliminate the control group of their massive eugenics experiment — that is, the unvaccinated, who are not getting the many vaccine-induced diseases behind the rise of all-causes mortality in people under 65.

But the vaxx scam isn’t working anymore. Too many people have already been hurt, or killed, or seen friends and relatives go down mysteriously and they’re taking a pass on any more shots. Parents have evidently seen enough to not bring their little children in for the life-altering mRNA treatments. The CDC, the FDA, and their cohorts hide their information, lie when pressed, and pretend that they are acting scientifically. But really, at this point, many public health officials must be secretly wondering how they will evade prosecution.

They won’t when fraud is proven in a court of law. Even with all the lies and redactions issued by the CDC and the FDA, the evidence is piling miles high that the Pfizer and Moderna drug trials were covered-up botches and the entire administration of the vaccine program has been an unnecessary disaster. Fraud vitiates immunity from liability. The pharma companies will go out of business and their profits will be clawed back in countless lawsuits. The drug company executives will go to prison along with Rochelle Walensky, Anthony Fauci, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, and many of their lieutenants.

My personal theory is that the Covid-19 release was wholly and entirely about getting rid of Donald Trump and nothing else, in order to protect the permanent bureaucracy, a.k.a. the deep state, which was faltering in its countless turpitudes against the people, including the FBI and DOJ’s complicity in the criminal frauds and seditions of RussiaGate, and the CIA’s complicity in the “whistleblower” shenanigans behind Trump impeachment No. 1. The “long game” in the Covid-19 scam of 2020 was obviously to set-up the loosest mail-in voting apparatus possible to enable maximum ballot fraud in that year’s elections. The catch is, the Covid-19 play did not protect the deep state; it only further demonstrated its malevolence.

“Joe Biden” — or the gang operating behind the Potemkin President — now seeks to keep some sort of public health emergency declaration in force, this time over the laughable monkeypox, to pave the way for more maximum ballot fraud via mail-in votes in the 2022 midterms. Watch as they attempt to shut down public polling places. Who will stop them? Individual state’s attorneys general could sue on the grounds of the federal government’s abrogating the states’ constitutional duty to manage their own elections. Or perhaps the states will defy the feds and just keep their polling place open, calling their bluff. What will the Federal Election Commission and AG Merrick Garland do then? Nullify the votes? (Incite a civil war?)

The regime must know that the next Congress is going to rip the face off the deep state and likely impeach “Joe Biden” for accepting bribes from countries hostile to the USA. Mr. Garland might try a maneuver to convict Hunter Biden on a Mickey Mouse tax crime in order to put all that laptop evidence under seal, but I doubt that will protect the Big Guy in an impeachment proceeding, if he lives until January. For the moment, they’ve got “JB” stuffed in a White House closet somewhere with an unshakable return of his Covid symptoms. They can only keep him out of sight so long. He’s living proof, on two cloven feet, that Covid vaccines don’t work, and that sort of screws their whole pooch.

The Party of Chaos is otherwise basking in the glow of victory from Senate passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, an all-out assault on the American public, which said public is already well onto. It’s yet another demonstration that legislation accomplishes the opposite of what its name declares its intentions to be. Reduce inflation caused by exorbitant government spending with a whole lot more government spending (of money that isn’t there)? Yeah, that’ll work, I’m sure (not). Double the size of the IRS in order to amp up harassment of the party’s political adversaries? I’ll tell you why that won’t work out as planned: The IRS will get 85,000 “diversity, inclusion, and equity” hires, meaning new dimensions in institutional incompetence and torpor.

As for “climate action,” expect only further economic destruction, probably deliberate and certainly idiotic. It’s not feasible financially, even with subsidies, to switch-out all the internal combustion cars and trucks for electric vehicles, which would have to run on power generated at its source mainly by natural gas and coal. Nor, on the other hand, can the federal government make oil more affordable. Rather, Americans will just have to drop-out from mass motoring and long-range trucking, which implies major changes in our living arrangements. That is exactly what’s actually happening now, by the way.

Most of these coming changes are beyond the control of government. They are historically emergent — the zeitgeist is in charge of them, not “Joe Biden” or Pete Buttigieg. The cheap energy age is over, and that salient fact will determine most of what happens going forward, including the inability of overgrown central governments to manage anything competently. The more grandiose their attempted work-arounds look, the more certainly they’ll fail. And, as that happens, government at the gigantic scale will shed legitimacy.

    Tpp many suspicious fires at food warehouses and facilities.
    Too many cows and birds dying or being killed.

    Meanwhile, the BLM stuff continues.

    ‘People of Color’ have no incentive to give up their victimhood as they are gaining social status and notoriety in America today as they have never seen before.
    The Predatory Dark Side Social Engineers certainly don’t want to give this up as They are succeeding in tearing a powerful Nation apart at the seams.

          I wish I shared JHK’s confidence that in the end justice and truth will win.

          • Walter B August 8, 2022 at 4:26 pm #

            In a system where everything is for sale, in the end, everything gets sold and more correctly, gets sold out. Those who have sold out God and their moral compasses have been able to obtain such enormous amounts of wealth and power that I for one cannot see any worldly power bringing any of them to justice, save for the occasional patsy here and there.

            In believing this, it is clear to me that the only thing standing between me and despair is my indomitable Faith in The Lord God Creator. Evil cannot win because just the act of being evil has brought about their loss and punishment.

          • JamesNix August 8, 2022 at 5:30 pm #

            My favorite detour from wholeheartedly agreeing with most everything James has to vibrantly draw our attentions to, is just that; I never agree with his total embrace of “JUSTICE”. I failed to write him a private email describing why and wherefore HOW why again these people escape justice; probably because; I am too unplugged to fully nail the assignment.

            So I ask some other JHK readers to stop the usual postpost bs and explain to Jim why these individuals (I am going back to the last decade) will never be prosecuted. I know Jim is a fervent believer in justice, but I don’t see justice as remotely possible with these structures and people in place. I WISH I WAS MISTAKEN.

          • Penelope Dreadful August 8, 2022 at 5:33 pm #

            Me too. I try not to be cynical, but TPTB will not go down easy. It is like playing whack-a-mole. You boot out a Dem, and then your Republican turns into Lynn Cheney, Mitt Romney, or Kinzinger.

          • ThorsHammer August 9, 2022 at 9:24 am #

            Jim, forever delusional. Your do no one a favor with your repeated fantasies of the triumph of the system of justice.

            There is not going to be a reckoning in which the perpetrators of the COVID fraud face “justice” under a system of “laws” to which they are held accountable. We do not live in a system of laws or justice, only one of power and graft. Justice is the fall of a guillotine blade on the neck of the perpetrators of the mass murder from the COVID “vaccine” fraud. Justice under the Nuremberg Accords merits the statutory death penalty for medical experimentation on young children who cannot by definition give informed consent.

            The political system in the USA does not represent a contest between different ideas or policies, but rather a circus conducted for the entertainment and mental confusion of the rabble. It is more akin to a Superbowl where all of the players are bribed by bookies to deliver the spread that matches their bets, and the referees control the goal posts that are virtual hologram points on an ever-shifting field.

            Next November the Repugnant Party with sweep the field, leaving DemonRat carcasses everywhere in the wake. And nothing will change. The War Party will still be in full operation, and the arms merchants will still be profiting from shipping weapons of destruction to battle zones whether it be in Ukraine or the next front. The bribes negotiated by Hunter Biden on behalf of the Biden Crime Family will no longer have the same payouts, but new ones will rapidly take their place with the Election Victors as beneficiaries. The Sheeple will still go along, because after all everybody needs a job and WAR is the biggest remaining profit center in the USA.

            Think that freezing Germans will refuse to wear pig snout masks that identify them as vaccine resisters in order to receive their allotment of rationed gas? They didn’t refuse to wear the Star of David when confronted by a previous outbreak of totalitarianism.

            Think the millions of AR15’s in the USA will emerge from their closets when the tally of this next “election” shows that mail in ballots exceed the entire population of individual states?

            I didn’t think so.

          • imonnit August 9, 2022 at 6:45 pm #

            I know it sounds fantastical that these politicians fill every face justice, but in the overarching message of JHK’s writings…the inevitable failure of complex systems… i feel that people here will one day react to our nation being destroyed. Probably not until they’re completely ruined. Like Sri Lanka. I trust that there will be plenty more examples in the near future for us to contemplate as entire countries falter before we face a complete system failure of our own. And in that moment, in my heart I hope those responsible suffer all the loss and indignities they have brought upon us.

          • imonnit August 9, 2022 at 6:47 pm #

        @ Kashub:

        I’m with you! Acronyms are annoying. For example: FF can mean “false flag,” “Founding Fathers,” or “fossil fuels.” Who the hell knows what the writer is talking about?

        Some other acronyms are so obscure as to meaning that I just give up (rather than googling it) and skip reading the comment.

        Another pet peeve (thankfully not common here) is the inventing of cutesy names for political figures, so that you have to figure out who they’re talking about, and cutesy coinages, which I suppose I’m expected to view as clever. Childish.

        Speak English, dammit!

        • SpeedyBB August 8, 2022 at 6:35 pm #

          Anthea, FF = Fast Forward. It is a common marker on recording tape devices.

        • EdD August 9, 2022 at 9:57 am #

          The use of acronyms reveals that the one posting the acronym filled rants is using a phone instead of a keyboard. The acronyms are used to shorten the number of characters in a rant.

          Some discussion site moderators simply block comments from the smartphone ranters. JHK, to his credit, doesn’t, but then the other participants here perform a takedown function on the more prolific trolls. Good work, folks.

        Yes and hopefully she is not let loose on the public any more. She crashed into a garage, people videoed it, then she backed up, sped off and went 30 feet into someone’s house.

            I heard Forrestal had issues with the government’s dealings with space aliens. But maybe like the JFK killing there were multiple reasons to get rid of the man.

  3. Walter B August 8, 2022 at 9:55 am #

    There is no question that the bloated federal government is totally incapable of accomplishing anything productive or useful, but do not forget that what they ARE good at is killing people. Heck, they have even found a way to kill men, women, and children (and all of the other pronouns) while shifting the blame to the victims and their bad genetics and poor life choices.

    IMHO it is more than likely that once the criminals that are pulling the strings realize that they are only fooling themselves and that even the lazy, dimwitted members of the herd are waking up to the attack upon their very existence, they will apply far more obvious methods of killing people. Keep in mind that Barry Obama’s greatest fear (or plan) was that NYC would be nuked. Perhaps Dirty Dick Cheney can muster one last assault on America by helping that come about. The city is already warning about such an event on their Emergency Management website. Wink, wink!

    • cowbell81 August 8, 2022 at 11:51 am #

      Iran, North Korea, China, Russia: They all have their nukes sighted on the Big Apple, and presumably Washington, D.C. Wouldn’t it be rich if they all coordinated a massive strike to occur at the same time, and take out numerous locales simultaneously? That would certainly be the way to do it, clean house and get the job done once and for all.

    • niner August 8, 2022 at 12:48 pm #

      speaking of nuke attacks, today we have the ludicrous spectacle of the russian military running around like a football team on defense trying to intercept the nuclear footballs which zelensky is throwing at the biggest nuclear power plant in europe.

      continuous barrage of flying explosives which the desperate russians are trying to intercept. if they fail even once, it is predicted to be 10 times worse than chernobyl with the same wind patterns over all of europe and eventually the globe, wafting up into the toxic rain. i’m really not sure what to call this play by zelensky and our own CIA/mil advisors. obviously they are daring the US and EU to stomp on and stop the russian advance. and he is risking “his” stolen country, and much of russia and all of europe with this game of nuclear bluff.

      i don’t know what to call this — talk about genocide, without the grace of any part of accident.

      Governments at this stage in time are all about depopulation. Green energy is depop. end of fossil fuel is depop. Clot shots are depop. digital currency and social merit is depop. Kunstler has got it right that governments and those that control them have declared war on their own people. They want us dead with bioweapons, starvation and war. What part of UN agenda 2030 don’t people understand. The elite need to swing, they are and have always been enemies of the people.

      • Walter B August 9, 2022 at 8:43 am #

        Most people cannot understand anything that frightens them, it is human nature to recoil from the fearful, just as it is for herds of animals to run at the first sign of an attacking predator. It is difficult to not fault them or be disgusted by their lack of caring or their fear, but it is how all herds function. We must remember that the value is in the herd as long as it is kept intact. That is our responsibility.

        Our host and those of us that have stepped up to assume roles of sheep dogs and shepherds will constantly struggle to keep from rejecting or hating the herd, because you cannot serve them if you hate them. The message of hope is not a foolish one, but a necessary one because the human spirit IS capable of taking action when pushed too far, and I have a feeling that those that hunt us will be pushing their limits all the way.

    Jim, great article as usual but I think you’re missing the big picture on the Covid scam – it’s not just about incompetence and intent to remove Trump. There is something far more sinister going on. Look up Dr. David Martin to understand how this has been brewing for some time to help implement population reduction. It’s not a crappy product – it’s a weapon.

    • EdD August 8, 2022 at 10:05 am #

      I agree. The election fraud was made possible by the enactment of the plandemic fraud. It was an opportunistic assault on one local populace (the USA) given cover by the larger assault on humanity at large.

    • Night Owl August 8, 2022 at 10:15 am #

      Yeah, its strange. Several weeks in a row, it appeared JHK understood the WEF plan, how broad it is in scale, and how it is being implemented

      Now “Covid” was just about one country and “Donald Trump.”

      LOL.

      You are darn right there is something more sinister. It is well documented in the comments here, and it is an attack that is set up so that the average joe does not understand how the strands of the rope converge and intertwine until the moment the noose goes on.

      Step by step. Denial ain’t helping anyone.

      • Night Owl August 8, 2022 at 10:19 am #

        Should have also mentioned:

        The idea that Biden truly has “Covid,” which thus far can only be confirmed by the PCR test — which, ofc, cannot actually confirm it — is ludicrous.

        The idea that he is taking Pfizer’s pill is also ludicrous. We have seen the death and maiming brought on by this poison.

        No one at that level is taking it.

          Last week our household received in the mail, 4 unsolicited Covid tests, presumably sent by .GOV. Anything to keep the mass panic going. Filed in the trash.

          • cowbell81 August 8, 2022 at 12:25 pm #

            I received those too, months ago, but I specifically requested them. I wanted to ensure I got my money’s worth since they were being mailed for free anyway. Shelved them in the back of my closet in case I need them for alternate purposes in a future WMBH scenario, not for testing through.

          Why is Trump any more than a bit player in all of this?

          the fact the Steve Kirsch has to run around soliciting surveys of who has died after the vaxx, and the CDC, DHHS, NIH, etc.– their complete lack of transparency as who has had a vaxx & how many, these are stats we need for *all* deaths of whatever cause and age.

        • Wizard of the Saddle August 9, 2022 at 8:42 am #

          Night Owl,

          I detest Pfizer and am unvaxxed and have resisted these people throughout the so-called pandemic, but I must observe that when my GF (who is also unvaxxed) caught COVID last month she took the PAXLOVID pills prescribed by her doctor and it did knock down her symptoms within days and she recovered in less than a week with no apparent I’ll effects.

          Not saying the pills are harmless since all modern pharmaceuticals seem to have side effects, but perhaps they do not manifest in everyone? Her experience thus far with the pills was positive.

          • Night Owl August 9, 2022 at 10:35 am #

            How do you know she had “Covid.”

            This post is not intended to antagonize.

            There is literally no test for it.

          • RocketDoc August 9, 2022 at 12:25 pm #

            @wiz and NO
            As a health care worker I have tested myself and staff for a year and a half with Binax Now. Never a positive–false or otherwise. Went to wedding in June, developed mild fever Sunday afternoon, and tested with the Binax test I brought. Negative. Flew home, fever broke on plane, some sweating and then felt fine. Tested strong positive when I got home that night and continued every 48 hours for 2 weeks. I had no other symptoms and checking with my physician he said we will wait on the Paxlovid. I mentioned that it was best to start treatments sooner rather than later BUT I was feeling pretty good and had no interest in taking an experimental medicine with side effects.
            Conclusions: I am old with HBP and the disease I had was the mildest ‘sickness’ I have ever had. I have been vaccinated in January 2021. I have had no boosters and do not plan to get any. I am planning international travel which requires vaccination but does not yet consider a booster as necessary for ‘fully vaccinated’. I would recommend getting whatever disease I had and feel good about natural immunity which I hope lasts until I get back from Europe.
            I had what I thought was my normal cold in January–tested every day for a week and it was negative. I was much more uncomfortable with the ‘non-Covid’ ailment then the putative Covid. IMO the Binax is obviously measuring something. I am no ‘anti-vaxxer’ but I am MUCH more suspicious than I ever was. I think JHK’s analysis of Covid as a Trump removal scam is limited and would argue it is a multidimensional “play’ that really, really, really wants to initiate a digital world currency. The fact that it pays the bills for big Pharma and its factotums is useful too.

        I agree: Covid is much more than Trump. If anything, I think Trump was allowed to win the Presidency in order to implement the Plandemic. (The Hildebeast isn’t needed until later…)

        Trump’s role was to sow division, to separate the sheep from the goats. The sheep will march gleefully into the boxcars, while the goats will freeze in their bunkers until their cash becomes illegal.

          No. His win is part of what led to the globocappers to put the plan in motion.

          His win coincided with the rise of other populist leaders in Europe and elsewhere, along with Brexit.

          They shot their wad early out of fear. And they did everything they could to ensure that their puppets were placed appropriately to realize it.

            I got the mailing from Mass.gov to request a mail-in ballot.

            In 2020 I think they just sent me the mail-in, but perhaps I requested it, thinking I might not be in town.

            I was in town, so I took the mail-in to the polling place and asked whether I should use it. The answer was yes.

            As in 2020, I see no reason why I couldn’t have used the mail-in qua mail=in, then gone to the polls and voted again. Who would sort it all out?

            Would I be prosecuted for voting twice?

            Would the nice poll-watcher ladies know from looking at their voter-list-by-street-address that I had already voted?

            No battle plan ever survives first contact with the enemy. The WEF’s battle plan is no exception. It started going off the rails from Day One.

            That’s the problem with being a Bond Villian. You operate under the delusion that you can control everyone and everything from your secret dormant volcano lair while you sit stroking a Persian cat.

            I agree with you more than I disagree with you Owl, but I don’t see myself hopping the fence to your side on this one. I think Trump was part of the plan from the beginning. And I think the plan has been in effect since before Trump announced his candidacy, since before 2008, since before 9/11, and in a broader sense, before 1913.

            I think he’s still part of the plan – the “bad guy” to the Establishment’s “good guy”. Thus the raid on his (one of his) home today (well, yesterday now). Keep him the rallying point for the deplorables, going into the stolen election of 2022 and the non-election of 2024.

            Of course, I could be wrong, (probably not), but just maybe…

      Agree. And we have to realize also that this recurrance of ‘pandemics’ have always been scams.

      If you watch “Fauci’s First Fraud” and also the documentary about cancer cures, you see the pattern that the medical industrial complex has been systematically working up to covid19 for 100 years. They want us completely dependent on drugs to be able to function and live. They need patients for life in order for big pharma and the med industrial complex to keep profiting. The problem there is that their model sucks, and is unsustainable, and people are waking up.

      Beginning with my mom’s generation, who lived through the Great Depression, they have brainwashed us into believing in magic pills which cure everything. I think my mom’s generation bought into it even more than mine; my generation seems to have caused a resurgence of natural cures. At least we used to. Then they turned up the crank when the AIDS fiasco happened. Again, all engineered.

            Happi, Dave, et al, this is quite amusing and insightful. I knew that various elixirs for “ladies’ problems” were available, particularly in the U.K., most of which were heavy on the laudanum sauce.

            I did not realize that the addictions were as widespread as you claim, but upon reflection it does not seem so unusual: life was hard, bitter and painful for most people. Even the very wealthy, and their families, were at risk of a sudden infection or attack of the dreaded lockjaw, which could end their days.

            I recently read that adventurers heading into the Wild West (starting, what, around Tennessee?) would customarily have every last one of their teeth extracted before leaving civilization, as an infected tooth could bring on blood poisoning and you’d be dead before you knew it.

            Hospitals were places you went to die, out of sight. Hey, maybe it’s becoming that way all over again, with the Cootie-19…

            hmuller, I have also read a long time ago that Turkish adults going out to work the opium poppy fields early in the morning would wad up opium extract in a cloth and stick it in the mouth of their two-year-olds, so they would spend the day safely, in a pleasant daze, without much supervision.

            It also meant (obviously) that as toddlers the kids would already be junkies.

        Yes, the earlier “pandemic” scares about various flus that always seemed to fizzle out had left me feeling blah about all of this s— and not inclined to take the new “covid-19” thing very seriously. I had never had a flu shot. Certainly not gonna start now!!

        Despite the Chinese supposedly keeling over in the street like ten-pins. Frankly, the whole covid narrative (especially when “they” came up with that name for the new illness) all had a surreal glow of a Chinese puppet opera.

        2 Aug 2022

        “The chemical imbalance theory of depression is well and truly dead. A paper by Joanna Moncrieff and colleagues, longtime critics of the effectiveness of antidepressants, has caused a splash. The paper provides a summary of other summaries that confirm there is no evidence to support the idea that depression is caused by disturbance of the brain’s serotonin system.”

        There’s no doubt in my mind psychiatrists will continue to prescribe them and even more dangerous (as in bad side effects) anti-psychotic drugs. The whole field of mental health treatment is a gold mine and on last night’s CBS news there was a brief segment on teen mental health, how they were “under treated”, and — they came right out and said this — there’s billions to be made in treating them.

        They won’t leave the kids alone unless it’s to close the schools, churches and rec centers where they could actually meet a friend.

          It’s horrid when I think of all the friends I have on SSRIs.

          They are awful. I am thankful this report came out but, much like the reports that puberty blockers are horrible for children, this will be ignored as braindead or greedy medics continue to prescribe them.

          • SW August 8, 2022 at 5:37 pm #

            SSRIs are not benign drugs even if they don’t work. A person has to come off them slowly to minimize withdrawal that feels like electric shocks in their brain. And when I was working in the hospital, I saw one case of serotonin poisoning and it can kill you.

            Benzos (valium, ativan, klonopin) were presented for years as perfectly harmless and they’re highly addictive.

      The Repo Market froze up in September, 2019, with rates overnight going to 10%. The implication was clear: there was going to need to be another bailout because the system was seizing up, again. Except: last time there was a bailout, the House originally voted against it, with letters to Congressmen overwhelmingly against it; Walter Jones said his letters were “no” and “hell, no.”

      How to remove opposition to the bailout? Maybe unemploy the great number of the people so they would BEG for a bailout instead of opposing it. How to do that? Well, we have this “pandemic” killing .26% of the infected, but it does kill a lot of old, fat, comorbid people who have time to write to Congress, so maybe if we lock down in an attempt to save them…

      A long time ago, I had a very enlightening conversation with an accountant. We were discussing the IRS. He asked me if I knew anyone who had ever been audited by the IRS. I said no. He told me that the IRS was big on hiring black women from big cities as audit agents, and that black women were afraid of small town rednecks, and they refused to come out to the rural areas to do audits. So diversity hires might be a good thing.

        Rain, I had a friend from Queens, New York, a white woman and old-fashioned liberal, who was afraid of rural poor white folk.

        The last time I was at out local IRS, the workers, black and white, were whining about their jobs and also could not help me with my questions about something I wanted to claim on my tax return.

        They could only advise me on what I needed to hang on to in case I got audited.

        • cowbell81 August 8, 2022 at 11:31 am #

          They probably couldn’t help you with questions on your tax return claim because that could be construed as providing tax advise and services. I experienced the same thing when working as a courthouse clerk – couldn’t provide very simple answers or resolutions to the public’s problem, otherwise I could be accused of providing legal advise. We weave such a dense web that it is difficult to get anything done or even provide simple services, all in the name of not showing favoritism (or running afoul of the American Bar Association and tax professionals).

          • Islander August 8, 2022 at 12:21 pm #

            Well, quite a few jurisdictions have departments specifically for helping the public to do their own legal work, make their own filings, etc. The effectiveness of those departments depends on the staff, and some of them are very competent.

          • Islander August 8, 2022 at 12:22 pm #

        They OUGHT to be afraid. In fact, they should be VERY afraid. Mess with the wrong white rural rednecks and it WILL end badly for them.

    • Blackbird August 8, 2022 at 11:09 am #

      Yes, these 85,000 “diversity, inclusion, and equity” hires may be incompetent, but they will be ruthless, hunting down whitey for the smallest financial irregularity, whether real or imagined.

      • Beryl of Oyl August 8, 2022 at 11:17 am #

        My local post office was hiring a bunch of these types several years back, during the Obama administration. No one who worked there knew why they were hired, or where they were coming from.

        The people would be very surly about having to do any work or being told what to do by a senior employee.

        • cowbell81 August 8, 2022 at 11:36 am #

          I don’t sign the back of my credit card. Every time I wanted to use it to pay for stamps at the post office they would demand that I sign it in front of them or they would refuse that method of payment. This was even after I showed them my government issued ID, they still refused to accept an unsigned card. But if I signed it right in front of them, even if I am forging a signature because it is a stolen card, well at least it is now signed and they could accept it! Now, where is the common sense in that?

          I argued and refused on this two times, after which I refused to buy stamps in person or just paid in cash. Otherwise I would buy online and pay their $1.25 convenience fee to have the stamps shipped to my house.

          Bunch of complete bureaucratic incompetents and idiots.

          • hmuller August 8, 2022 at 10:16 pm #

            Today, the post office sent another package addressed to me to the wrong zip code. (I see it by the tracking data). Third time this year.
            But it could be worse. In April a package worth $1800 “disappeared” inside the Las Vegas post office. Fortunately, insurance paid for it. But now that company won’t deal with me except via UPS overnight at an additional charge to me of $13 per package. Like it’s my fault they operate in a city that’s the moral cesspool of America with a post office full of thieves.

          • Blackbird August 10, 2022 at 1:08 am #

            I used to sign my credit cards “Ask For ID”. I think twice someone actually read what I wrote and asked for my ID (I hope they’ve moved on to meaningful employment since then…). These are the people safe-guarding our financial security – like the monkeys at the airport doing the caber toss with your luggage.

        • Islander August 8, 2022 at 12:23 pm #

          I’m still reeling from your comment last week about how the only thing Whites brought to this continent was turpentine. Outside of that, they were just another bunch of warring tribes no different than the “Native Americans”.

          • Beryl of Oyl August 8, 2022 at 12:50 pm #

            OMG Jarek, that is not what I said and you know it. As for the turpentine, it wasn’t “whites” it was some of my people.

            They didn’t take anyone else’s country, because it wasn’t a country.

            They didn’t even come from another country. They went from one region to another.

            BTW, McDonald’s has pies (after a fashion) for all you pastry-challenged males out there.

            I admit no such thing Jarek.

            I was developing an idea for a franchise, Pies For Guys, with a bike up window and pretty girls dressed like June Cleaver handing out pie warm from the oven.

            Then I realized you drag queens and trannies would be all over that like bot flies, and it would go out of business because what man wants someone with a five o’clock shadow and green hair waiting on him?

            Not every comment posted here about the price of rice in China, the Van Allen Belt, or the weather Latvia is about Jarek and his particular hobby horse.

            Ant: Here are the the posts themselves. I wasn’t unfair in the least.

            Beryl: Before the Europeans stepped foot on this continent in significant numbers, the inhabitants were divided into tribes along “ethnic” lines, and constantly rowing with each other.

            All the early settlers did was introduce new groups and fighting along political lines.

            August 5, 2022 at 12:10 pm #
            But you see, the “early settlers” aren’t just a group of new tribes, they happen to be your tribe. And yes, in the end they did coalesce. And they were doing it again later one with the newer White immigrant groups.

            You talk like you’re the omniscient narrator in a Play or a Novelist talking about their novel. No you’re a character in the story. And like any character, you are nothing without your people.

            Such humility (from the root hummus or earth) is one of the psychological secrets to survival, Beryl.

            “All the early settlers did was introduce new groups and fighting along political lines.”

            In other words, our coming was just more of the same old same old. The so called Native Americans were already here doing what we would do.

            We’re the Native Americans. They were just living here. They were in our way. They got moved out of our way.

            August 5, 2022 at 2:51 pm #
            Jarek, in terms of groups finding reasons to fight, that IS all they did.

            They made turpentine too, but that is not relative to my point either.

            Jarek: So it was written. The scrolls reveal an ugliness that rivals your own, abeit in an another area. But mark: Her views aren’t unusual or radical in the least. That we are nothing special is what Whites are supposed to think and do think. Your views in contrast, that men are trash and shouldn’t get to see their own children if the woman doesn’t want them to, are rather extreme, though not altogether rare. Typical radical feminism.

            John Az sees nothing wrong is what she said. Nor would most Whites. That simply means we’re a dead tree in the forest, our nation no more.

          That’s the silver lining: These black females will do nothing except sit on their double-wide posteriors texting with their girlfriends on their iPhones and God help the foolish supervisor who DARES to discipline them or otherwise make any demands on them that they perform actual work of any kind.

          I know. I used to have to supervise quite a few of them. It was a fool’s errand. They are impossible to motivate and once hired, they are nearly impossible to fire. You’ll be entangled in an EEOC dispute over it until Hell freezes over.

          So, Biden Regime IRS, go ahead, MAKE MY DAY, by hiring 87,000 Afro-Biatches to become auditors. All you’ll do is increase the federal deficit! Bwa-ha-ha-ha!!

            @ Wizard of the Saddle:

            One of my old friends retired from the Post Office a couple of years ago. He said that many of the “diversity hires” flatly refused to do any work at all. If a supervisor told them to do something, they simply refused–and there was nothing the supervisor could do about it. My friend shared an office with one of those women for a number of years.

            My friend also told me that physical fights were common–usually two black women fighting over a man. Often people were fired but would be rehired in six months or so with full back pay.

        “Yes, the IRS is already full of people who are incompetent ”

        I had a recent experience of said incompetency and wastage of paper and postage, emanating from some central IRS office in Colorado.

        the idea of recounting the flurry of useless bulletins I received from the IRS for months after I had settled the problem promptly (caused by an arithmetic error by my tax preparer) is exhausting. But I did keep all of the communications, carrying contrary messages and showing that the left hand had zero idea of what the right hand was doing, and wrote a letter detailing the timeline of ridiculousness.

        Know what? This resulted in a whole nother blizzard of right hand/left hand bulletins. Someone must be getting paid by the volume of IRS mail they send to citizens.

        As far as I can tell the pathogen was merely cold and flu season rebranded.

        • workingclasshero August 8, 2022 at 11:55 am #

          As I’ve posted before, I got Covid, and it is real and it’s not the flu. The crime is denial of alternative treatment options for an ailment that can be much worse than traditional seasonal flu. I can forgive the mistake of going with a dangerous and ineffective vaccine, but not continuing with it after evidence became apparent that it was ineffective. These idiots simply don’t want to admit a mistake especially since monopoly profits are at stake along with the power grab of forcing dumb compliance on the masses.

          • Jarek August 8, 2022 at 12:31 pm #

            I picked up something around New Year’s that may have been omicron. Can’t say for sure because I don’t do the fake tests.

            For me that episode was a bad cold/normal flu. I had a fever and aches for a few days, that was about all.

That ultra-relaxed, warm velvet feeling – like the first couple teaspoons of a codeine-based cough syrup. The next two or three days were the standard mild head cold. Were I a belieber, I’d add my voice to the chorus, “I got Covid too!” But, having absolutely no confidence in the medical racket, I upped my intake of water and oranges and went on with my life.

            Now if I die in a motorcycle crack-up, with a papaya tied to my belt (as is the fashion ’round these parts) – damn right it was Covid!

So I was online a lot at work trying to figure out how save myself…. I read about a Nigerian healer and this and that but what resonated with me in the end was what I found and read on Duesberg’s website. That was around late 2003.

            Everything Duesberg said I witnessed with my own eyes working in Africa. For example, there were never mass burials, there were a lot of very highly paid foreigners in the AIDS health biz including Africans, the population was growing and the PCR test would read positive one day and negative the next because “the virus could hide in the brain” etc, etc.

            At the end of it all, I reached a stage where I to flirting with the idea of marrying a beautiful albeit “HIV positive” girl because I had become so convinced that it was all a horrible hoax based on greed and indifferent malevolence…. My position on this historic Hoax will never change. I’ve moved on and learned one thing – Reason is a self-serving god.

            I’m reluctant to talk openly about Salvia divinorum. Too many idiots out there (looking at you Miley Cyrus) abusing it.

    “My personal theory is that the Covid-19 release was wholly and entirely about getting rid of Donald Trump and nothing else.”

    That’s a rather limited view considering that Trump was president of only one nation, while the powers-that-be are trying to vax the entire planet—and that the fallout from that program has created a dire political mess in many countries, not just in America.

    So aim higher, Jim. Covid-19 is about getting rid of (most) everyone, everywhere.

        A combination of all those things, and more (like engineered food shortages, for one thing). “Covid-19” for me is kind of an umbrella term that includes all the other mischief.

      I fear that all the conjecture about the adverse effects of the vax may be real but other than a reference to all-cause deaths among the young (by a life insurance exec) I see little to support it….and even that one mention seems to have died on the vine????

      When will some hard numbers prove this to even the most woke members of our society?

      • malthuss August 8, 2022 at 11:47 am #

      I think if they hadn’t gotten President Trump on board with the plan, the rest of the world would have been that much harder to bring into line.

      They could not have him standing as a bulwark against their goals, as he did against the Paris Accord nuttery.

      So yes, that release at this time was meant to bring him down.

        The FULL quote, in context, from a TED Talk in 2010 is:

        “The world today has 6.8 billion people.?That’s?headed up to about nine billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by, perhaps, 10 or 15 percent. But there, we see an increase of about 1.3.”

        • hmuller August 9, 2022 at 12:20 am #

          I’m confused, RL. How do legitimate vaccines lower the population? That would only happen if there’s something special in the vaccine to sterilize or even kill the recipient.

          • Redneck Liberal August 9, 2022 at 5:21 am #

            The general expectation is that improved health, over time, lowers the birth rate. Secure people don’t need an army of offspring to support them in old age. It’s been demographically proven for decades.

          • Jarek August 9, 2022 at 11:15 am #

            Yeah, so much so that really thriving civilizations don’t even bother to have enough kids to even replace themselves, right?

            There’s nothing healthier than extinction. So why wait? Why not just put something special in the vaccines and speed up the process?

            Of course in earlier times, it never went that far. Life isn’t a test tube experiment in a hermetically sealed lab. Other forces step in and take over the dying nation, either invaders or aliens who had come in to work the jobs the softies wouldn’t do anymore. Quality of life stuff, right?

          While do you repeatedly refuse to deal with the evidence that the disease is entirely treatable and therefore no ‘vaccine’ was ever necessary, which means that every person who died and will die from the ‘vaccine’ died and will die unnecessarily (and with malice aforethought).

          Double whammy: murder by withholding of treatment and murder by known-to-be-unnecessary ‘vaccine’.

    Well, we’re getting a million EV Charging Stations, installed in sundry locations cross the US, including National and State Parks, points in the wilderness, and for purposes of equity and inclusion, inside inner city ghettos. My opinion, based upon recent trends, is that these EV Charging Stations — which cost hundreds of thousands of dollars apiece — will quickly be vandalized and strip mined for the copper and any other precious metals they contain.

    “It’s not feasible financially, even with subsidies, to switch-out all the internal combustion cars and trucks for electric vehicles, which would have to run on power generated at its source mainly by natural gas and coal.”

    Ask yourself three simple questions:

    1) How much electricty ( KWH’s) does it take to run an EV for one mile?

    2) How many miles do Americans drive in a year?

    3) How much electricty (MW) is generated in the US per year?

    This is a math problem you could do on the back of a cocktail napkin. Either everyone will be driving a whole lot less, or very few will have cars. And that is likely the plan. If you control the ability of people to travel, you control them.

    • mrs_saj August 8, 2022 at 10:49 am #

      This is a little of topic. I go to Yahoo for some of my leftist news. Yesterday I read an article titled, “Cost of Mining Bitcoin in 198 Countries”. This is what they had to say.

      “It takes an estimated 1,449 kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy to mine a single bitcoin. That’s the same amount of energy an average U.S. household consumes in approximately 13 years.”

      So it seems to me there are many modern conveniences that are simply unsustainable in light of the left’s war on fossil fuels.

      • cowbell81 August 8, 2022 at 10:56 am #

        In response to your last sentence:

        That and the big air conditioning units and condensers that are on the roofs of all huge Wal-Marts, shopping complexes, and other large apartment buildings. Time to take these out of service and bring back the open windows and box fans.

        • Beryl of Oyl August 8, 2022 at 11:36 am #

          They keep constructing those high-rise welfare towers all over the world, and the most recent argument for putting up those things and filling them with immigrants is that they are the most “efficient” way to live, I guess because they are on bus lines or something, but that’s patent nonsense, because in such buildings you not only cannot stay cool without the A/C on, you can’t even get up and downstairs without using electricity.

          I was talking with someone roughly my age once, about a local historic movie theater, and I happened to mention that it was not air-conditioned when it opened.

          He would not believe me. It was not air conditioned, because they did not have air-conditioning back then.

          Hospitals were hot in the summer too. They had windows that opened.

          • cowbell81 August 8, 2022 at 11:41 am #

            Exactly, sweat a little, lost some weight, open a window. Heaven forbid people be a little inconvenienced or uncomfortable for a few weeks each summer.

            Good point about the elevators. Back in the day lack of elevators kept buildings at a reasonable height, and forced people to actually walk stairs and exercise!

            We need to get back to basics. Buildings no more than 5 stories high, no elevators or air conditioning, windows that open. For home look to the southern architecture, with deep wide porches and verandas, and a house raised off the ground so that air can circulate beneath the building. Otherwise, have a root cellar or basement you can escape to during the dog days of summer.

          • Islander August 8, 2022 at 12:54 pm #

            Friends in Tucson live in a house that was designed by some local architect in the thirties. Not nationally known, but a regional architect.

            They have some arrangement—can’t recall the details—that creates a flow of air over water . . . Cools the air and cools the house.

            And then there are caves . . .

            Instead of building hgh-rises, perhaps our overlords should be digging low-rises . . .

      • Graham August 8, 2022 at 1:05 pm #

        There is something wrong with your stated numbers. As I look at my current power bill issued here in Ontario for 1 month it says I used 1990 KWH . A little high for the average homeowner but there is a separate apartment included with that number.

        • RocketDoc August 8, 2022 at 2:42 pm #

          You are right. I checked my utility bill and it’s 2200 kWh for last month. We have had a rather nasty 11% base increase and a surcharge for overconsumption. Coupled with a hot July we have a $150 increase in electricity costs. Perhaps the average monthly US consumer is at 1400 kWh which would make one bitcoin comparable to a households’ ONE MONTH electric consumption. Still a lot for vaporware….

        • mrs_saj August 8, 2022 at 8:21 pm #

          Graham,

          Thanks for checking. The article could be wrong or have a typo. I copied and pasted the quote so I wouldn’t botch it.

          But the translation into residential power usage boggled my mind. So it seems it is wrong relative to your electric bill as a data point.

          Thanks,
          Mrs. SAJ

      • Hardrock August 8, 2022 at 3:08 pm #

        Mrs_saj quoted the article correctly. I found it at Visual Capitalist written by Carmen Ang who linked to a .gov site for her numbers, However, that site contradicts her “13 Year” figure.

        Based on .gov numbers, mining one bit coin requires electricity equivalent to 1.6 months usage of the average US home

        So those who called BS on this can take it up with Carmen Ang.

        • mrs_saj August 8, 2022 at 8:23 pm #

          Thanks! I like when we fact check each other. I feel it makes us all smarter.

      • Bilejones August 9, 2022 at 2:04 pm #

        And the fact that the energy usage is off by a factor of 1,000 tells us everything we need to know about the clown who wrote that gibberish and the morons who believe and promote it.

        • RocketDoc August 9, 2022 at 5:09 pm #

          So perhaps it takes a Megawatt to produce a bitcoin? My kWh’s cost 12 cents so 2,000 is $240 and would equal 2 MWh. It would make a lot of sense to mine a bitcoin for $120–returning a profit of $20,000+, No? In fact, If we assume 1,000 kWh/month or 1 MWh/month then it would be “reasonable” to use 13 years of monthly residential energy use: $120/month times 12 month times 13 years for a total cost of $18,700 and a profit of approx $4,000. But this whole calculation strikes me as a lot of something for an imaginary nothing.

          • Hardrock August 10, 2022 at 2:50 pm #

            RocDoc:

            Your calculations are correct but do not factor in the cost of the hardware to use all that electricity. That cost can be considerable….these guys are not running used chromebooks.

            I found good info at minerdaily dot com

    • mitchellc August 8, 2022 at 10:58 am #

      Nice comment. Now, take it a step further; project what happens:

      – Less mobility, less production, less consumption.

      – The debt money system requires growth

      – the result is either collapse/bankruptcy or “monetary defense” aka printing/inflation

      The US is a highly unstable society, barely functioning even while conjuring $trillions to pacify a huge underclass, so of course the answer is debasement

      The results are:

      – dispersed rural dies

      – cities become even more violent war zones

      – that means suburbs are the last stand. They will in turn:

      — begin to more closely resemble villages with mixed use housing/commercial activities

      — facilitate shared transport (Uber et al) and bike substitutes (whether EV or peddle power)

      ***

      We know the existing power generation/grid cannot handle future demand via “renewables”, so see return of nuclear and build out infrastructure programs

      We know the demographic changes initiated generations ago to replace highly expectant, highly entitled natives with lower demand imports is now baked in

      ***

      OK, add it up

      1. Transitioning suburbs are the future
      2. New demographics facilitate lower expectations
      3. Nuclear power to (literally) keep the lights on
      4. Runaway inflation

      Soooo, own housing in the burbs, learn the new dominant language, watch for return of nukes, note growth of bikes, hold hard assets to ride inflationary wave

        Seems to me that rural areas should do okay. They can produce food. The have enough housing for their current population. The thrift store in my area is continually bursting with clothing and almost everything else you could ever want. Returning to a strictly local economy might seem like rather austere lifestyle to some–though not to many of the rural poor.

        I think you’d see people turning their attention to how they could make a living in a very local market. I’ll bet they’d figure something out.
        1910
        The Amish manage very well without cars or electricity. There would be an inadequate supply of horses for awhile.

        Old fire insurance maps for my area for 1900 and 1910 show that the small rural towns of that era were very prosperous. The nearest town to me (population 5,000) had every business that was conceivable at that time–even though the population was only about 2,000 back then. There was even an opera house.

        • hmuller August 9, 2022 at 12:31 am #

          So I guess someone could claim to be the greatest opera singer in a town of 2,000. Sounds like Mayberry without the moonshine.

          • Anthea August 10, 2022 at 10:40 pm #

            @ hmuller:

            The town’s opera house was really more along the lines of a theater for plays and musicals–and community activities.

            “Opera houses were central to American life from the end of the Civil War through the 1920s. Most towns and cities, from small to large, had at least one opera house. This was the golden age of the opera house, and it is no coincidence that this period was also the golden age of popular entertainment, fraternities, coal mining, and railroads. All these aspects of American life converged in the opera house. Little, if any, opera was actually performed in these buildings. An opera house was a community entertainment and meeting hall….

            “The opera house was never used exclusively for theatrical performance. It was a part of the fabric of the community and was used for anything and everything that a large indoor space could provide for.”

            “America’s great cities wouldn’t consider themselves great if they lacked proper venues for artistic
            performance and public assembly. But in the 19th
            century, the same was true for even the smallest burg.
            Civic pride and necessity led to the erection of many
            fine small-town opera houses, public halls and fraternal
            lodge auditoriums in the era from the 1860s to 1890s.
            They were the gathering place for any event requiring
            seating for a few hundred to a thousand or more – high
            school graduations, town celebrations, touring lecturers,
            performers and, yes, the occasional opera.”

            I’ve omitted links, since including them would “disappear” my post.

            Interestingly, the town of 5,000 near me has, to my knowledge, never had a movie theater, even though, in the early 1900s (and probably earlier) it could support an opera house with about one-third of its present population.

            You might look online at the Sanborn Fire Insurance maps of your own town or the little towns in your area, to see the types of businesses and amenities that rural towns enjoyed in 1900-1910. You will be surprised at the level of prosperity and the availability of amenities of all kinds.

            The little town nearest me even had a small college back in 1910–and also a cannery.

            The town had hotels and restaurants, picture framers, photographers, several grocers, furniture stores, and much more. They also had a livery stable (of course), and a stockyard. One thing that is conspicuously absent is a doctor’s office. (Back then, you didn’t go to the doctor; the doctor came to you.)

            To me, the quality of life many people enjoyed before fossil fuels looks pretty good. Since probably about half the population were family farmers, much of the work was physically demanding and involved being outdoors in all kinds of weather. But anyone who has experienced both outdoor work and a desk job will tell you that it’s the desk job that kills both body and soul.

    • BackRowHeckler August 8, 2022 at 3:19 pm #

      Very few will have cars, the top 5% driving $179,000 Lucid Airs and $300,000 GM Escalade EVs. The other 95% — the Proles — will be walking or riding on stinking buses with the mentally ill and vagrants.

      This will be the cause of much resentment and many vandalized EVs.

      If Proles can’t drive, nobody drives.

      • GreenAlba August 8, 2022 at 6:58 pm #

        There won’t be many vandalised EVs. There will be facial recognition cameras everywhere and it will take a lot less than a vandalised EV to put you in an internment camp with a crematorium beside it, like this one.

    Even if by some miracle, the Republicans do succeed in November, I have little faith in these feckless twits to actually have the balls to go after Biden and the deep state.

    Their track record doesn’t make me very optimistic. More than likely, they’ll go through some charade to make the proles think they’re on their side, but behind the scenes, they’ll laugh and continue on as usual.

    • cbeard August 8, 2022 at 11:29 am #

      The Republicans are the deep state. Just as the Democrats. Get them ALL out of office and start over.

      • JohnAZ August 8, 2022 at 12:02 pm #

        No! The GOP is divided, because of Deplorables. The Deep State lovers in the GOP. the Bush supporters, the RINOs, comprise a hefty part of the GOP machine. The Deplorables however, the meat of the party, support Trump as the CPAC group just voted.

        Trump needs to take his troops to a third party ASAP. If he sticks with the current GOP they will assist the Deep State to crucify him.

        • JohnAZ August 8, 2022 at 12:05 pm #

          The first thing he needs to do is repudiate the vaxx and regret his part in it in 2020. Then support the folks trying to identify what the Deep State tried to do to poison the public.

          Can Congress impeach Fauci? Or conduct an investigation, like Jan. 6 to convict him of murder?

          • SW August 8, 2022 at 4:05 pm #

            I wish Trump would face the reality that he’s too old to be president. He’s not senile like Biden but to divide the party would be a gift to whomever is on the Democratic ticket (my guess — Newsome for president and Stacy Abrams as vice or Pete Buttigewhateverhisnameis). The country is more important than Trump and the problems in two years are going to be worse. If he really does care about America, he should help select and support deSantis or another strong candidate.

            I would love to see Fauci spend his golden years as a Walmart greeter but it’ll never happen. He knows too much about too many people but most importantly, he’s solidly on their team.

        • Wizard of the Saddle August 10, 2022 at 12:38 pm #

          No. Drive OUT the bloody RINO’s and let THEM enjoy the frustration and utter futility of trying to gain ballot access as a 3rd Party.

          The fastest path to power for MAGA is a wholesale takeover of the GOP from the RINO’s.

          This would also effect the RUPTURE of the UniParty as a REAL “Right Wing” actually severs itself from the UniParty Buzzard that squats on Washington. The remaining crippled buzzard will soon hemorrhage to death. A bird with only one left wing can only attempt to fly in endless circles, going nowhere and achieving nothing.

    • JohnAZ August 8, 2022 at 11:57 am #

      That is why Trump or someone that can out Trump Trump is the only hope to undo the damage that the Deep State has done.

      Trump as a lame duck president, scares the bejeesus out of the Deep State including the Coastal liberal RINOs. He represents the fly over Red states that have been screwed by the Lib leaning Deep State. If he gets in control of the executive branch again, especially if Congress would remain in conservative patriotic hands, he could rip a wide hole in the Liberal piece of crap our federal government has become.

      It is really a demographics issue. Is the US still the US? Or a collection of trash from around the world looking for a handout. Give trash the vote and you get a trashy government.

      The US is rapidly becoming a non-entity anyway. As the Dems, in their haste to destroy an American culture and identity, drive us further down economically, the exodus is already underway. First from Blue states to Red states then abroad after the Reds turn blue.

      It amazes me that people are so hidebound and stupid that they move from California to Texas, bitching all the way, then vote Democrat in Texas.

    Jim,

    Great post as always. You alluded (both last Friday and today) about folks higher up in the government medical apparatus beginning to realize they’d entangled themselves in something that it would be difficult to get out of. See quotes below.

    “The emperor’s new clothes hang in shreds. Rumor is that many upper-level employees in these public health agencies are increasingly freaked out by their now-obvious complicity in a momentous crime. They know they will have to answer for allowing the mRNA fiasco to get this far, for going along to get along, and they’re preparing to mutiny to save their own asses. Wait for it.”

    “But really, at this point, many public health officials must be secretly wondering how they will evade prosecution.”

    This has not generated the chatter in the comments as I had anticipated. I am very curious as to what you are hearing (without divulging sources of course). Are you anticipating a multitude of convenient retirements? Fauci of course is in too deep for a retirement to untangle him. Gottlieb left the FDA and I believe is now comfortably ensconced on the Board of Directors at Pfizer, go figure.

    Thanks,
    Mrs_SAJ

    • Beryl of Oyl August 8, 2022 at 11:40 am #

      Fauci should hang.

      • cowbell81 August 8, 2022 at 11:58 am #

        Careful there, saying that could net you several months, if not years, in a Federal pen. Apparently Fauci has our best interests at heart, no bad words are to be spoken and no harm should ever come to him.

        • JohnAZ August 8, 2022 at 12:07 pm #

            It could plant the seed of thought in someone else’s mind though, and later lead to action. It is a slippery slope, and no doubt the deep state would use any excuse to their advantage in order to prosecute those they deem the opposition.

    “They won’t when fraud is proven in a court of law. ” <- fraud isn't taken seriously in this country, it should be prosecuted on all levels if we want to fix what our host described last week as "…a culture of immersive and pervasive dishonesty."

    "My personal theory is that the Covid-19 release was wholly and entirely about getting rid of Donald Trump and nothing else,…" <- The lockdowns and destroying the economy and fraudulently using it as an excuse for mail-in ballots was about getting rid of Trump.

    "The IRS will get 85,000 “diversity, inclusion, and equity” hires, meaning new dimensions in institutional incompetence and torpor." <- Incompetence hurts taxpayers since their mistakes will come in two flavors- 1) in the governments favor so that taxpayers waste their personal time and money defending themselves and the government spends taxpayer money in non-productive collection efforts. 2) when they make mistakes that overlook tax fraud we taxpayers lose the legitimate use of those funds since frauds won't identify themselves.

    " Individual state’s attorney generals could sue on the grounds of the federal government’s abrogating the states’ constitutional duty to manage their own elections." <- In order to hear an Obama speech when he first ran I had to donate to his campaign. I got on a "Democratic AG" e-mail list. Everyone is worried about Democratic district attorneys now but they have also been pushing the Attorney General elections so don't look for help from the democratic attorney generals. They won't do anything.

    “My personal theory is that the Covid-19 release was wholly and entirely about getting rid of Donald Trump and nothing else, in order to protect the permanent bureaucracy, a.k.a. the deep state”

    This seems somewhat US-centric; the covid-19 hoax is world-wide. I just don’t removing one US president as something that needed a global hoax, which is still ongoing 2 years later.

    • cowbell81 August 8, 2022 at 10:51 am #

      The Covid hoax is being used to the advantage of the WEF and globalists in more ways than one. The fact that they used it to get rid of Trump is only one small segment of the pie. All pieces of their puzzle are slowing falling into place.

      • thirdcoastlegend August 8, 2022 at 10:58 am #

        Trump had to go because as POTUS, despite his flaws and the legions of Deep State power against him, he was able to delay most of and even derail some of their plans for four years.

        The possibility that the Deplorables would vote hard enough to force another four year delay was totally unacceptable to the globalist crowd.

        • Beryl of Oyl August 8, 2022 at 11:47 am #

          He was also the American president. That meant something in the world.

      • MaryQueen August 8, 2022 at 11:25 am #

        Trump pushed the Covid19 hoax, kept Fauxi in place, and even bragged about Operation Warp Speed. He also continues to push the vaxxes.

        So, I’m not buying that he’s some sort of anti-WEF outsider.

          • JohnAZ August 8, 2022 at 12:18 pm #

            Him, or Pence. Did Pence get a hot potato he was incapable of handling. Why would he appoint two well known Liberals to head up the task force? Were the two, Trump and Pence, stuck in a Deep State situation they could not get around?

          • Beryl of Oyl August 8, 2022 at 1:10 pm #

            President Trump allowed Pence to run the task force. Pence was no innocent bystander, he was a malevolent actor.

            President Trump should have had his Chief of Staff check out every person who was brought in.

            The president is the chief executive, the president presides, and he did not do his job, which was to make sure others did their jobs.

            Pence belongs in prison.

        • Beryl of Oyl August 8, 2022 at 11:45 am #

          He kept Fauci in place to pacify the MSM so they would give him the praise he felt he deserved for his Operation Warp Speed achievement.

          A lot of people with a lot of science and medicine credentials fell for that vaxx hoax.

          He chose to believe one set of “experts” over another.

          I am not saying he’s blameless over that task force. I’m saying the trap was laid out for him and he had no idea what he was walking into.

            Have you looked into Matthew Pottinger?

            He seems to have acted as a Svengali type and successfully exerted a disturbing amount of influence over the Trump administration’s Covid response.

            Pottinger is extremely pro-China. So much so I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s a CCP plant.

          • Beryl of Oyl August 8, 2022 at 1:15 pm #

            He knows damn well that they are being made mandatory, and by continuing to endorse the shots as safe and effective, he gives cover to the Bidens who insist that the shots are necessary to end covid, which makes those of us who refuse them look selfish and unpatriotic.

          • MaryQueen August 8, 2022 at 2:40 pm #

            So? He still pushes the clot shot. He is just as culpable as all of the people many up here says should hang for what they’ve done.

        • Islander August 8, 2022 at 1:06 pm #

          I reckon Trump is/was basically as confused as the rest of us as to what was going on.

          More so, actually. Because closer to the sources of disinfo.

          Remember he wanted to take the USA out of WHO.

          At the time it seemed absurd, like bombing the Iran nuke agreement.

          Now it seems preternaturally canny!!

          • Beryl of Oyl August 8, 2022 at 1:25 pm #

            Pence had a woman working for him whose job it was to keep President Trump confused.

            However, a few MINUTES of due diligence would have made him understand that Fauci and Birx had to go, and nobody bothered.

            And…..once Dr, Scott Atlas came in and started talking sense, he still allowed Fauci and Birx to blather their nonsense and to bash Governor DeSants, who listened to Dr. Atlas.

            And… there is the fact that you didn’t have to be a scientist or doctor or any kind of “expert” at all, to know that wacky claptrap the task force was making up as they went along, was utter nonsense. Yet he stood there allowing them the floor.

            I blame the Trump fanatics who kept making excuses for him when he clearly had lost control and went down a road no president should go down.

            And NO he did not have to hire Fauci, and yes he could have and should have kicked him off the task force.

            He has said out loud, that he CHOSE not to fire Fauci, because the MSM wouldn’t have liked it. He wanted to keep them happy (as if) so they would praise him for Warp Speed.

            Am I the only one who sees this stuff?

            We needc to get rid of FEMA, and we need to get rid of the notion of emergency powers in general.

            Anyone who doesn’t go along with that is not fit for public office.

          • MaryQueen August 8, 2022 at 2:43 pm #

            The excuses for that POS is just really beyond the pale.

            Reminds me of when people excused Bernie Sanders for throwing them under the bus – TWICE.

            Trump is out for Trump. There are people in solitary confinement he does nothing to help, and he actually turned on his supporters re: J6.

            He pushed the clotshot, bragged about getting jabs in arms, oversaw the hellish lockdown.

            He doesn’t get a fucking pass.

          Well, if Trump learned anything from the past 7 years it’s that he is now in a fight to the finish and that includes his entire family.

          He also has learned that vetting your STAFF and other appointees matters a lot.

          Since he has a grudge to give it to the DS up the posterior, I’m sorta inclined to let him have a go of it. Especially since he will be operating with no re-election concerns.

    What would I know? My guess is that they are making a grab for full control by any means possible, that they hope to have the digital currency ready behind the scenes (I don’t think it is prominent in the media fairytale narrative – but again what would I know as I don’t follow it – but it is no secret either). The can lock down for the virus du jour or for global warming, whatever looks best and I think they hope to starve everyone into submission, freeze them in the winter and cut fuel for vehicle. So, more or less what most people here think, I expect.

    I am as sceptical as before about the vaccine being a ‘bio weapon’. At least not through the ‘spike protein’ as I don’t really believe any of that stuff, the latest claim from Sweden that it can permanently alter DNA notwithstanding. The adjuvants, lipd particles and other dodgy addititives are another matter. (By the way, I don’t dismiss Ardis’s claim of snake venom being in them. Why not? They have put other things in.)

    I don’t know how to marry the above opinion with David Martin’s evidence of a planned bio weapon. Perhaps they really think they are doing this but they are morons as exemplified by Harari.

    I don’t k now about your chances with the vaccine being down to the ‘lots lottery’. I seem to recall early D dimer (spelling?) tests showing micro clotting in everyone but I expect the numbers tested were tiny.

    I expect Rendesivir and Midazolam plus ventilators are major cultprits although here again there is little clarity among the experts.

    On the other hand, if they find themselves facing serious resistance I expect they will simply stop and bide their time, and take it up again later on. Jordan Peterson made a good point along these lines last year.

    Anecdotal evidence suggests that things are not growing well around the world. That is not much to go on.

    They seem to be going at it from all possible angles, including affecting the weather with the absurd chemtrails. Looks like they are getting international machinery in place to enforce pandemic compliance on foot of WHO edicts. Even Satanic symbolism, which |I suspect is just thrown in to confuse.

    Once-satirical English magazine Private Eye used to jokingly call the Muslims the ‘Bombing community’. Now we are dealing with the Lying Community.

      Good summation. Yes, I think the only thing we can know conclusively at this point is that the vaxxes are to be avoided at all costs. I don’t what’s in them, I don’t know if some of them are placebos or not, and I’m not sure what they’re causing specifically, but I DO KNOW I don’t want the damn things circulating in my system. The idea that so many people would be so cavalier about injecting totally unknown and untested substances into their body based on spurious claims by known criminal enterprises is absolutely astonishing to me.

        We don’t need to know – and almost certainly never will know – the truth about the alleged “virus”, the “disease(s)”, and the “vaccines”. All we really need to know is that we are being constantly (and inconsistently) lied to about these things. That should be enough to convince us not to cooperate in this Plandemic – or in anything else these lying bastards have in store for us.

          I survived the entire plandemic without doing one ounce of ‘precaution’ without a sniffle.

          I don’t allow their poisons in my body and I don’t up my stress by watching the circus on CNN.

          “It is in your bloodstream. That is for keeps.”

          Oh? That doesn’t make sense. In fact, it’s not factually accurate.

          “The Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) estimates that the spike proteins that were generated by COVID-19 vaccines last up to a few weeks, like other proteins made by the body. The immune system quickly identifies, attacks and destroys the spike proteins because it recognizes them as not part of you

          • SpeedyBB August 9, 2022 at 5:16 am #

            All I know, RL, is what I read, but I do attempt to study seriously and thoroughly. While the spike proteins were initially assumed to stay in the muscles, honest researchers discovered that a number reportedly got loose and made their way throughout the body, where they contributed to the formation of micro-clots. The first alarm I read about this came from Canada, long before the autopsies, where the matter of rogue spike proteins came up.

            I would be very curious know the truth about the travails of Mr and Mrs Bieber, who seem to both have suffered an astonishingly rare condition. No mention was made of vaccination but we may assume they are both on the bandwagon.

          • Night Owl August 9, 2022 at 5:54 am #

            “(IDSA) estimates […]”

            Estimates.

            They estimate that that toxic protein stays in your body for weeks, and ofc, they fail to include the fact that the MRNA function is one of programming — where the cell is programmed to produce the protein.

            Check in with further estimates at your leisure, Nut.

          • Paula D August 9, 2022 at 9:09 pm #

            Exactly, Night Owl.
            The problem is the mRNA ensconced in your cells pumping out millions of copies of the spike protein which then rips its way through your body. Your immune system may take them out, but they’ll make more.

            Well, some “Scots” are descended from the remnants of the Brythonic Picts. Others are (swallow your pride Scotty) largely viking.

            But yes, it is ironic that the original “Scots” came from Ireland. Forced the Britons into the highlands. And got shipped back to Eire 12 centuries later to “Anglicize” Ireland.

          • Jarek August 10, 2022 at 12:29 pm #

            No, it’s not ironic at all since Scotia was an ancient name for Ireland. Remember ye, a nation is the people not the land.

            It’s quite a dramatic story: A small clan trapped against the Irish sea by more powerful clans. Doomed to wither or be conquered. But they were fierce man and had good ships. They saw a power vacuum to the northeast across the water. Did they hesitate? Expand or contract, Black. Push or be pushed.

            Yes, the Picts fought long and hard – for centuries. Finally an alliance by marriage helped to create the modern nation.

        • Blackbird August 10, 2022 at 2:24 am #

          Phil Lynott?

          My understanding is that the “Black Irish” are descendants (i.e., retain more of the genetics) of the original, post-ice-age northwest European hunter-gatherers (dark skin, dark hair, blue eyes) that colonized Ireland and survived truncated waves (Eire is so far away and hard to get to) of invasion (by the “Indo-Europeans, their descendants the “Celts”, their other descendants the Norse, and of course those celto-germanic mongrels, the Bloody English).

          Distribution of DNA haplotypes seems to indicate relatively high degrees of survival of ancient pedigrees in the more remote areas of Europe (Ireland, the Basque country, Sardinia – and I suspect also northern Scandinavia [the Sami]).

          • Sean Coleman August 10, 2022 at 5:45 pm #

            Phil Lynnott is the best example I can think of too but I am not persuaded. for me it is a question of who you are, who your ancestors were. If you read a book like Douglas Hyde’s A Literary History Of Ireland the point is made that genealogies were traced back for centuries. When I was about twelve I questioned my father’s mother about her ancestry and she went back to to the mid-19thC. I wrote it down on a piece of paper which was later thrown out as part of the house cleaning. When you are that young you don’t really own anything, it was all common space.

            I have come to completely disbelieve conventional accounts like the one you mention. I even doubt there was an Ice Age and their methods of dating are worse than useless. My father’s side were not too tall, black hair and very broad. My mother’s side were fairer, tall and slimmer. I take after them in that respect.

            Both of my maternal grandmothers were surnamed Carroll or O’Carroll, by coincidence and my mother’s lot (here they say ‘her people’) were blow-ins in South Sligo, just north of Ballaghaderreen (now universally mispronounced as BalladrEEN instead of Ballagh-AD-Er-een. Some call it Allah-dreen). They arrived with O’Sullivan Bear’s band of desperadoes who, rebels against the crown, made their way up from West Cork in the early 17thC, picking up recruits on the way, and ended up near Monastaraden. All of this was common folk lore.

            My husband is Irish and we met a conductor on Amtrak that was half Basque and half Greek and he insisted that my husband had signs of Basque in him, which he said meant that there were traces of Neanderthal.

            Is that true? I have no idea, but the concept delights us and we frequently refer to his Basque/Neanderthal genes.

    I forgot to mention that there was apparently a full scale financial collapse just at the very start of the Covid scam in spring 2020, the results of 40 years at least of playing the system. They have no restraint although that does not tie in well with Petersen’s statement (above) that when they meet any resistance they just stop and pick it up again later.

    • Anthea August 8, 2022 at 11:50 pm #

      @ Sean Coleman:

      Yes, I remember hearing about the financial collapse in September or August of 2019. I can’t remember what it was about, but it was a major banking crisis at the international level. Some have speculated that the covid lockdowns and other measure were partially intended to defuse this problem through demand destruction. The covid hysteria and the various measures imposed served many purposes.

      One reason that I quickly decided it was all bullshit by the end of March, 2020, was because it was very obvious that, in my area at least, no one was even sick, and the only people who died were the very elderly or ill, who were dying pretty much at the expected rate. Throughout 2020-21, a few relatives, in-laws, and acquaintances got covid–or what was claimed to be covid, based on the bogus testing. This was over about an 18-month period of time, and the only one was particularly ill was a daughter with Lyme Disease. She was never hospitalized, by just had a lengthy recovery.

      I used to point out to people on Facebook who were all in a dither that the flu season of two years prior was MUCH more severe: Whole families were down sick together–everyone I knew was sick–and there was talk of closing the schools because half the kids were out sick. The 2020-21 flu season was very mild by comparison. Most people I know were never sick at all; those who were had a mild cold. Yawn.

      • Sean Coleman August 9, 2022 at 11:35 am #

        I came to it from a different angle from most. It was obvious very early on that it was being co-ordinated across the world. The supermarkets here were ready immediately with dramatci recordings about safety and them looking after us. World leaders were all talking about the ‘new normal’. I am the only person in my organization who has never worked a day from home. I think they kept the building open to let me in because it suited everyone having someone on site. Walking to work i saw them digging up the streets in Killarney and heard they did the same elsewhere. Good timing.

        But this was not the main issue for me at the time because I was used to seeing everything as the madness of crowds. Biooker and North’s book Scared To Death seemed to take a similar approach and it was from this that I had already learnt that all of these health scares without exception were nonsense. Remember asbestos? This was based on a semantic confusion between two very different substances with a shared name through a quirk of the English language. Common asbestos is harmless but I think most still do not realize. A large industry was built on removing it from buidlings and America witnessed some insane payouts. (In one case I think someone got huge compensation for simply having been in a room where there had once been asbestos. Somehting like that. Or perhaps it was someone who had been coughed on or who had once glimpsed Jimmy Savile at the other end of the street.)

        So I knew (and said here – Jarek will remember) that there as nothing there. I told all my staff too but they told me it was all right for me but they believed it. At the very start my wife got very upset when she asked me if I would believe something even if the rest of the world did not and I said ‘yes’. (Wrong move.) As in all of these things everyting, literally, you looked into about the virus story turned out to be completely false, starting with what Colin Flaherty used to call “The Numbas”.

        My wife read out a local newspaper article about a young man who had caught ‘Covid’ and metnioned that he had had pneumonia before and suffered a collapsed lung. Yet he appeared on national tv a couple of weeks later an not a mention of this relevant fact. Later it turned out that the office cleaner’s daughter worked as a nurse in Tralee Hosptal and said there was nothing wrong with the man. He spent all day contacting the media about his story. The day he left he asked for a wheelchair and he was told to walk.

        • Sean Coleman August 9, 2022 at 11:39 am #

          I should have added that bad as all that was it is much worse because there is a real conspiracy. I used to think it would be wholly imaginary and looked at all-deaths statistics for 2020 to confirm it. Simple re-labelling of flu. Lost in dodgy statistics just like in global warming. But that has all changed now.

        • Jarek August 10, 2022 at 12:37 pm #

          They used to use asbestos in envelopes and even clothes. I worked in a bookstore, opening up such envelopes. I developed a sensitivity and my hands would hurt immediately upon contract.

          To people without such sensitivities it’s all imagination, if and until they do develop them. The dog barks. The caravan passes.

          @ Redneck Liberal:

          Certainly, that is the hope, among the left. My impression is that support for “abortion rights” has greatly eroded over the past two decades. The MSM representation that there is broad support is, IMHO, false. There are probably many reasons for this–one of them being the great advances in birth-control methods since Roe vs. Wade. Another possible reason is that there are probably many, many women who deeply regret having an abortion, and whose families mourn the loss of a grandchild, niece or nephew. Some of these women who had an abortion in their teens or twenties will never marry and have children. It is doubtless painful to reflect that they DID have a child.

          Women want children. They are hard-wired that way. This desire is not easily short-circuited by MSM propanda. Women were bound to wake up and realized they’d been hoodwinked.

    Trump went “all in” on the Covid hoax. Declaration of health emergency, Operation Warp Speed, jawboning the vaccines, e.g., “beautiful vaccine,” calling himself “father of the vaccine.” The promotion of these “vaccines” was an instance of “talking past the sale.” A health emergency was never demonstrated, particularly in terms of statistics. Fear was used to promote the vaccine. Fear is the best persuader. Fear mongering is always used to persuade people to give up their rights. “Vaccines” did not go through the required trials. A rationale was put forth, that, since there is a pandemic, use of experimental drugs is justified. And so on and so forth..

    • Beryl of Oyl August 8, 2022 at 11:58 am #

      We need these presumed emergency powers wiped out, killed dead, forbidden by law, punishable by firing squad for even attempting them.

      This should be central to every Republican’s campaign, but I have heard of one or two speaking against lockdowns, but none against these declarations that allegedly supersede the Bill of Rights.

      Mitch McConnell even maneuvered a woman onto the Supreme Court who believes emergencies justify nullification of the Constitution, so that shows you where he stands.

      Word is tricking out, however. These “emergencies” have been the cover for all kinds of atrocities, and I am seeing some people waking up to just what happened.

    • dorn August 8, 2022 at 12:37 pm #

      Indeed, the emergency powers need to go. I have doubted the constitutionality of emergency powers, even though such laws have bee enacted and judges have upheld them as constitutional. It seems to me that under the original concept of sovereign states, the individual states would need to agree or could nullify such a federal declaration. Of course, the viability of the sovereign state was decided by that railroad attorney in the 1800s.

        Admitting failure is a cardinal sin in the US.

        He apparently understood less about the requirements (particularly temporal) for developing a vaccine, than everyone in this thread understands about the requirements for developing a vaccine.

        Too big a blind spot for someone pretending to preside over the government of this (or any other) country.

        But what’s done is done. I think the most relevant question regarding Trump now, is: “Does he have a role in the future of the politics of this country?” Obviously, I think the answer is “no”. Others (and I sympathize with them, hoping for change…) feel he can lead us to victory if only he gets a second chance. Catching the same fish with the same lure you just plied out of its throat.

    I wonder how many current events are actually planned and how many are just consequences of inaction by feckless meat-sacks?

    Does anyone really believe the cdc spokesperson, pelosi, birx, buttigeg, biden, w.h.o., anyone in congress or politics?

    These unneeded people are all horrible and show-boat their malfeasance without shame.

    I don’t see how they could coordinate or plan anything, and there doesn’t seem to be anyone able to organize these fools.

      It’s all hidden in plain sight. They are all in bed with each other at Davos, and their agenda is organized to the extreme, where the sign language of one is heard by their deaf cohorts.

      Xi and the likes of Biden (both his cohorts domestically and internationally) are like a couple of drunks that are using each other as a crutch. They both are onboard with a One World Government, and up to this point have felt that their entanglement is mutually beneficial.

      To make sense of the nonsense, you need to look at it from the perspective that the actions of Biden and his cohorts are structured to destroy their respective countries existing format for life. This is the backroom deal they have made with Xi, and in exchange, they are counting on Xi’s support to deal with the “Uyghurs” in their respective countries.

      The masses are not supposed to understand the meaning of the Inflation Reduction Act and an expansion of the IRS, the conduct of Soros funded DA’s and the raid on Mar-a-Lago, the hypocrisy of Eric Adams, the blatant in your face disregard for the rule of law, the illogical management of covid, why and how it came to be that our children are being taught CRT. Actions like these are designed so that we just get lost in the noise.

    Just wish I shared your optimism in prosecutions – for all manner of lawlessness. You’re well aware that we live in a lawless country.

    There’s a certain level, above which, the laws do not apply. There’s a certain level, below which, the laws do not apply. The laws are only for “us”, the segment of society in between – enforced against us, to maintain control.

      Really? CW version 2? Civil wars can be much worse than “regular” wars because there’s the family fight aspect going on in it. Family fights are the worst fights to be involved in, emotions run high, people feel betrayed, and people don’t forget about them easily. Let’s hope that the United States instead of civil war experiences an easy breakup such as what happened to the old Soviet Union. One morning, people woke up, drank some coffee, and realized it was finally over with and the elites in the Russian communist party understood they had no credibility left and that the experiment in communism had failed. It was pointless for them to continue any longer because everyone saw their commie “emperor” was butt naked.

      If such an event happens in the USA, individual state governments will be given the task to manage things as best they can within their own state lines. Such a general collapse in confidence could probably only happen after a general failure of the US dollar and the nation being shut off from access to imported goods. Instead of wokery going on, there will be a mad scramble to figure out ways to make our own shoes here, otherwise we’ll all be woke, broke, and barefooted. Or walking around with rags wrapped around our feet instead of our former China shoes and boots.

      MAN TRACKS DOWN THE DR THAT GAVE ONE OF HIS FAMILY MEMBERS THE COVIDSHOT & THEY DIED AFTER TAKING IT

      www(dot)bitchute(dot)com/video/784YCSXONLfg/

      The man attacks a vehicle with two boomerangs (the first breaks). How Australian is that?

      I believe that these angry incidents will become more and more common. We are tribal primates. Like teenagers kicking a cop car then leaping onto the hood of the cop car then smashing the windshield of the cop car, it escalates in steps as each young man pushes the envelope just a little further.

      These past 2+ years can be viewed as mankind’s biggest ever Sociology experiment.

      • GreenAlba August 8, 2022 at 12:54 pm #

        The coming angry incidents are one of the reasons why they need to get us digitally ID’d and monitored everywhere we go, so that we can’t come out of our homes without their permission in the form of a green tick. It’s almost here.

        There was an article recently about Chinese people from Xin-Jiang whose bank accounts had been closed and they were prevented from travelling to the banks to protest by means of their Covid Apps.

          Exactly GA – TPTB in China are too few to control the number of the Chinese population. Just as TPTB in the US are too few to control number of the US population.

          The answer is the population policing themselves (i.e., the mask mob here in the US).

          The Chinese Covid App has red & green indicators. Disobey, and your App magically switches to red (supposedly indicating COVID).

          Now, the grocery store manager, the bank manager, the retail manager – anybody checking your App for admittance – becomes the mechanism for controlling the population, i.e., policing themselves.

          • GreenAlba August 8, 2022 at 3:27 pm #

            Not just in China, Ron. In France, at the height of the previous practice run for tyranny, getting a green tick (to get into shopping malls or cafes) required a booster every 4 months. I have English friends there – they have never mentioned this as in any way abnormal.

            Then they cancelled it. Then they tried to bring it back. Then the National Assembly voted against it.

            Now they’ve accepted digital tyranny as a condition of a cost-of-living financial package. Biometric DNA health card with bells and whistles: facial recognition & fingerprints, info. to be shared with government agencies, insurers & police. What’s not to like?

        • Paula D August 9, 2022 at 9:25 pm #

          Yes, it is mind blowing that she so casually tells the father the reason they didn’t give the mother information is because then she might not have poisoned their child.

          To be fair, there is precedent. The CDC said that they were not releasing stats on injuries in the under 45 crowd for that same reason “It fuels vaccine hesitancy”.

          And wasn’t Scotland the only country releasing the stats? Until they stopped, giving that same reason?

          • GreenAlba August 10, 2022 at 6:00 am #

            I don’t know about Scotland and the under-45 stats specifically, Paula. I know that they stopped publishing the death stats by vaxx status altogether after they showed that 87% of covid deaths were in the fully vaxxed in the 4 weeks up to 4 Feb., claiming that anti-vaxxers would misinterpret the figures out of context! In England, of course, they quietly published stats, on the day Boris Johnson resigned, showing the figure was 94% for April/May and it has been 90% for the last 12-months overall.

            I would like to see something happen to Nicola Sturgeon before I die. I think that, politically, she may be nearly done, but not because of covid. It is becoming more obvious to more people that under her reign (and that’s what it is with aspiring Queen Nicola – apparently nothing happens that doesn’t come from her desk) everything has been ruined – health service, education, economy. All while she has been neglecting the running of the country to pursue her obsession with Independence. As if ‘independence’ meant a single thing in 2022 anyway.

            I read recently that Nippy (as she is commonly known – she’s a real piece of work generally) has been talking with Hilary Clinton and some other member of the cabal, so who knows where she hopes to go next, once the Scottish people tell her to eff off (please make it soon).

          • GreenAlba August 10, 2022 at 6:10 am #

            Also the 94% figure is even more significant because they have been lying about the number of people ‘vaccinated’. The figure of 8% unvaxxed has been bandied about, but the BBC recently put out a propaganda programme called ‘Unvaccinated’ which put a bunch of unvaxxed people in a house, Big Brother style, with a ‘doctor’, Hannah Fry, purportedly help the average punter understand why these obvious weirdos wouldn’t get vaxxed (why did no-one ever do this for flu?). UKC News did a deep dive, as they always do, into who Hannah Fry actually is and which organisations she’s linked to, but I digress …

            The blurb for the programme claimed that only 4 million were unvaxxed – the point being to try to make them look like a small lunatic fringe. Professor Norman Fenton (mathematician) has pointed out that the actual number of totally unvaxxed (adults, I think) – using the government’s own statistics – is actually 18.9 million, which is a much more impressive number out of a total population of 65 million (not sure what the adult population is but it would make the percentage even more impressive)..

          • Paula D August 10, 2022 at 2:16 pm #

            Thanks Green Alba.
            I only remembered that they quit giving stats and that they said it was so that the vaccine hesitant couldn’t use statistics and data to bolster their stance.
            Because……”Science”.

            As for the vaccinated becoming ”unvaccinated” when a new one is decreed, that must be part of the Great Reset.
            Your vax status becomes reset when your owners tell you it’s time for another.

      What’s worse, this shit’s been going on since about 1955. There have been countless vaccine injuries and deaths from vaccines, mostly hushed up and attributed to some other cause. The increase in the autism rate is staggering. Vaccines are also suspected to result in allergies.

    I heard the CBS documentary about the weapons being sent to Ukraine not reaching their intended destinations is catching a lot of flak.

    I would venture that such weapons, when they even exist, are reaching the people they were meant to go to.

    I have been talking about how someone as highly visible as Zelensky being some sort of corrupt crime boss without anyone noticing seemed pretty amazing to me.

    Now I have learned that there is a biography in the works detailing the corruption, and I’ve also been reminded that there was a documentary released in 2021, which means that when our Congress was voting to send money over there they had this information at their fingertips but they pretended not to know it.

    These people are nothing but deviants. The same sex lifestyle merely encourages this fact. How are people like this even allowed to adopt children, when there are same-sex couples desperate and waiting years for adoption approval? This shouldn’t even be allowed, a same-sex household is not a safe or appropriate place to even raise a child.

    Article summary:

    A same-sex couple in Georgia were arrested last month and charged with using their two adopted children to record and manufacture child pornography, authorities said.

    The couple, William Zulock, 32, and Zachary Zulock, 35, were taken into custody after the Walton County Sheriff’s Office conducted a raid on a Loganville, Georgia, residence following reports of an individual downloading child pornography, according to a report.

    Authorities discovered two young boys at the home were being sexually exploited and recorded for the production of child pornography.

    The boys’ adoptive fathers “were engaging in sexually abusive acts and video documenting this abuse,” authorities said.

    The adoptive fathers are facing charges of aggravated child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes, and sexual exploitation of a child.

        It is Georgia after all, so theoretically possible. When gays marry each other, how do they determine which one takes the last name of the other? Does the more effeminate one take on the name of the other? So many complicated new rules, it would make the good Emily Post’s head spin!

      Andrew Cuomo was trying to shut down a small, church affiliated adoption agency which otherwise met all the rules, simply because they would only place babies with a married man and woman.

      It seems to me the mother placing her baby, if she wanted it to go to men, would have options to do so through other means.

      I wondered, if “man”, “woman”, and “married” are too many discriminatory requirements, how about “couple”?

      If two random men wanted to adopt a child jointly, would that be okay? I think most people would say no.

      So why does being gay make it kosher?

    As much as I would love to see all those mentioned by Mr Kunstler go to jail as well as Biden impeached, I doubt either of those will transpire. The permanently entrenched bureaucracy of the deep state will prevent the former and Biden will go full dementia to prevent the latter.

    I can’t see Trump as primary target of this diabolical program. That’s plausible only in the context of an in-your-face, subversive and unaccountable Party of Chaos versus a defiled-by-putative-enemies and their pre- and post-election recriminations against a banished, ‘still-truckin,’ indomitable and largely imaginary White Knight. What a masterfully presented Hegelian dialectic! Bumbling “Joe Biden” and his coterie as detestable thesis; “Defrauded Donald” as patriotic antithesis, chafing in the lists to redeem his kingdom from the castle knaves. And the MSM and alternate media sustaining this increasingly polarizing image from their respective amen corners. What’s to be the synthesis, folks? Wasn’t it Trump who gave us “Operation Warp Speed”? Is he not the same red-head who abrogated executive control of this inhuman international scam in the U.S. to Tony Fauci ? Useful idiot, maybe. Complicit, perhaps! But “target”??? No! The primary target has always been thee!

    I’d like to comment upon Jim’s mention of all-cause mortality.

    I’ve been keeping tabs on all-cause deaths in England & Wales since the start of the ‘pandemic’ (data publicly available from the ONS) to verify how bad it was (spoiler: not at all for most age groups) and it’s not just under-65s that are showing an unusual increase. There is an increase showing in every age group except for the under-14s, which gets commensurably worse with increase in age. 15-44s seem barely affected too, just as they were barely affected during the ‘pandemic’.

    Traditionally, deaths peak at the start of January and drop to their lowest levels around late summer, which is about where we are now. For the over 85s, that summer level is usually around 3,500 per week yet it’s sitting at 4,000 per week and rising. For 75-84s the level usually sits around 2,500 per week yet it’s sitting at 3,000 per week and rising. A similar pattern is seen for 65-74s and 45-64s to a slightly lesser but notable affect.

    I still haven’t made my mind up whether the vaccine rollout was malicious but what stupefies me is that virtually everybody thinks they ‘saved the day’ despite all evidence to the contrary. FOUR ‘vaccines’ inside twelve months that have done statistically nothing and here we are with an unusual increase on the five-year average? What is it going to take to wake people up?

    • Rhett Dawson August 8, 2022 at 1:11 pm #

      • Slugoon August 8, 2022 at 3:17 pm #

        I’m quite comfortable being in the ‘middle of the pack’ Jar. Being on the fringes can lead to its own shortcomings, perhaps?

        I’ve spoken to many rational and rather lovely people who are jabbed and boosted and from most I get the impression that they just go along to get along. They don’t necessarily think the ‘vaccines’ have done much good but by the same token they don’t think they’ve done much harm, and they trust the medical professionals.

        Which brings me to the conspiracy idea. I’ve no doubt that the likes of Schwab, and Gates, and the CEOs of large pharmaceutical companies, and the government bureaucrats that shill for them have grand designs but between them and the hoi polloi sits a million shades of grey. I have trouble thinking where in said hierarchy the line is drawn between evil-doers and the plain ignorant.

        Almost everyone, medical professionals included, has gone along with what’s happened these past years. It’s a mystery to me how the mania came to take over the most rational of brains, yet I don’t think the majority of those people acted with malicious intent. I remain amazed.

          Yeah, let’s not be radical or get to the heart of anything. Let’s be Lukewarm, deserving to be spat out. Or as Americans say, Nice.

          From Oxford Languages

          nice
          /n?s/

          Origin

          Middle English (in the sense ‘stupid’): from Old French, from Latin nescius ‘ignorant’, from nescire ‘not know’. Other early senses included ‘coy, reserved’, giving rise to ‘fastidious, scrupulous’: this led both to the sense ‘fine, subtle’ (regarded by some as the ‘correct’ sense), and to the main current senses.

          The early meaning is the best. Nice people are stupid in terms of the current American meaning.

          And what a meditation on language! The word changed completely in the later centuries to mean the opposite. Now it’s come full circle.

          • Slugoon August 8, 2022 at 3:35 pm #

            I do recall reading that the modern definition of ‘nice’ is now opposite to what it was originally.

            I suppose I think that shouting from the sidelines doesn’t always get you anywhere, even if you do have a clearer view of the field.

    I’d also like to comment on EVs. I’ve said this here before but the purpose of them is nothing to do with ‘the environment’. How can it be? (The same glass, steel, plastic and fabric, whose embodied energy represents the vast majority of the car’s lifetime carbon footprint. Furthermore, we’re being encouraged to scrap perfectly good IC cars that would run for many more years with little investment, and ergo less energy, than replacing it for something that is basically the same but has a battery in it with its own environmental problems.)

    The purpose is to get people to drive less, whether due to limitations on range or a deliberate plan to control the days of the week in which your home charger will work etc.

    Again, this is all lost on the general public who feel so virtuous driving around with their little green stripe on the registration plate.

    • Rhett Dawson August 8, 2022 at 1:17 pm #

      Smog is an example of EVs being preferable to ICs (ceteris paribus).

      The rubber really meets the road, however, when one combines an EV future with global depop. The elephant in the room is that reducing the world population to 500,000,000 truly is very green.

      • Islander August 8, 2022 at 1:23 pm #

        Yeah, the pollution and other env. degredation occurs in far-away lands where lithium and other EV precursor materials are mined and refined.

        • Rhett Dawson August 8, 2022 at 1:34 pm #

          Indeed. How American is that, right?

          Plus, luxury EVs for the few top-echelon thousands is WAY greener than ICs for multitudes of useless eating billions. It’s not even close.

    • GreenAlba August 8, 2022 at 1:30 pm #

      That includes my Covidian brother (it’s always the same people). They bought a Mini-Cooper, which is either an EV or a hybrid, and proudly said it was their ‘contribution’. He’s got a fat public-sector pension, which helps. Been a lecturer all his life – out mother used to say he’d never left school.

      I used to be a member of our City Car Club (now run by Enterprise). One time I left something in the car and phoned them (somewhere in England) and the woman told me to go back to the car, which was in our street, and she opened the door for me from England. And that’s been the case for years, so the new vehicles will just stop when ‘they’ want them to stop. And if you’re limited to 10 miles from your house, your credit card won’t work more than 10 miles from your house.

      Add to that that the UK is planning to be the world’s first drone superhighway or something and how comfortable do you feel?

          There’s something similar in NYC, I know a woman who was considering getting a share in a car so she could shop in some of the stores outside the city.

          I imagine they’s have had some kind of restrictions on how far you could go with it too.

          I worry about driving along the highway and having the police decide to turn off the vehicle right in front of me.

        • GreenAlba August 8, 2022 at 1:52 pm #

          I didn’t say that. I said the Car Club cars have had the technology to open the door for you for years. You have a smart card which you swipe, when then allows you to open the door in the normal way, but when you swipe the card at the end of your hire, you can’t then get in it again if you haven’t booked the car online or by phone.

          What I meant was that, by extension, they will be able to add technology (if they haven’t already) that will do similar things with private cars.

        On the topic of remote control, I can unlock my car from my phone (yes, the Nokia has gone to the silicon scrapheap in the sky) but I guess it works via the SIM card in the boot. I’m supposing I could pull that to stop Großer Bruder from spying on me although maybe it would kill the car too.

    I am ashamed to admit that at the outset of the plandemic I purchased the Fauci bobblehead from the National Bobblehead Museum. It shows his hand in mid-air, indicating that we all need to stay locked down for three weeks in order to “flatten the curve”. It has been sitting in the box in the back of my closet ever since. In retrospect though, this might have been a wise investment, since I can hit him and speak mean to him as much as I want. I can throw it across the room and maybe even one day I will light a fuse under this little bobblehead ass.

    Trump was suckered by the Covid story. Like most people he was mesmerized by white coats and stethoscopes and confronted with a medical topic about which he knew nothing, he deferred to the “doctors” from whom he expected honesty, altruism, and actual expertise.

    When they told him that it took years to develop and test a vaccine, he thought the timelines were just government and bureaucratic bullshit and no different than delays in obtaining a construction permit. When he issued a directive to get a vaccine out before the end of the year, no matter what, the Big Pharma execs thought they had died and gone to heaven. Could they get a product out if they could bypass animal trials, human trials, and the normal observation periods necessary to assess safety and effectiveness? Yessir, Mr. President, we can do that!

    So they rushed a product out with inadequate testing, armed with immunity from lawsuits and with guarantees of government purchases, and made billions.

    OR

    This was a bio-weapon meant to depopulate the planet. In either case, Trump unwittingly facilitated its early deployment.

    He was proud of himself for cutting through what he considered to be regulatory bullshit.

    Cognitive dissonance it a powerful thing, and it appears to date he has been unable to acknowledge that he made a yuge mistake. He would boost his credibility enormously if he could just admit he fell for a con. Or he could at least come out hard against forced vaccinations and suggest ongoing surveillance to follow side effects.

    All bureaucracies become corrupt, including and especially things as big as the NIH. The only solution is to prosecute the leaders, fire the hordes of useless and corrupt employees, and start over. Starting with a budget base of zero.

    Unfortunately, it appears that every other federal institution is similarly corrupted, including the DOJ.

    I would like to be as optimistic as JHK, but I have a hard time getting there. I hope he’s right.

      He kept stressing that it was from “China.” He touted HCQ. He refused to wear a mask. He was treated by Dr Zelenko.

      • Beryl of Oyl August 8, 2022 at 1:55 pm #

        He told us masks were patriotic and he allowed Ivanka to force them on workers in the West Wing.

        He played along with the idiocy because once he developed the vaccine in record time, all would be fine and he could build the economy back up again.

    “The Sickening Quickening… Do you still doubt that the federal bureaucracy and the elected government parasitically attached to it seek to harm the people they rule (i.e., us) by any means necessary?”

    Predatory Dark Siders Gotta Be Predatory and Very Dark. As it was in the beginning. As it is right now. As it shall be tomorrow if They get their way.

    For a very long time these self-appointed Masters of the Universe used to hide their evil deeds and horrid and rancid intentions safely away from the sight lines of innocence of We the People. But today, The Dark Siders don’t bother with that theater any more. They just don’t care any more. We the People are simply going to take it and like it. Or else. And They have plenty of Your Elses’ at Their disposal to pull out whenever They deem necessary.

    They don’t try to look like Leaders any more. They don’t even try to look like responsible adults. Now, their infantile selfish pathology of Me-Me-Me! has come full-flower into full bloom. In their eyes, We the People don’t even deserve the slight-of-hand and false front of a responsible social contract government dressed up in pretty packages of ‘patriotic’ perfumes and catchy sound bites fully stuffed with the heavy cream of abject lies and deception. The full bloom of Their pathology leaves a heavy stench-like perfume hanging over the drought-stricken Nation from sea-to-shining-sea.

    And what’s worse is that many of We the People have developed a strong taste for the stuff and crave more of it.

    “The Party of Chaos is otherwise basking in the glow of victory from Senate passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, an all-out assault on the American public…”

    Yes, indeed. Some creative writing major got the job from Our Esteemed Representatives to name these bills with a name that is the exact opposite of what the bill actually intends. You know, like ‘Patriot’ Act. Nothing patriotic about ripping the rights and privacy of Americans to shreds and bits. Want to know what’s in a bill? See how its titled and then know that the bill intends to do exactly the opposite.

    And now, the ‘Inflation Reduction Act!’ to throw more fuel on the raging fire of runaway inflation and out-of-control money conjuring from The unHoly Private Banking Cartel that keeps its hands with a forceful choke hold around the throats of all Americans.

    Yes, the Sickening Quickening. The lies are thickening. The skies are darkening. The thin veil of social cohesion is weakening. And this massive social experiment of trying to maintain a large and complex World society forever on a bed of falsehoods and money-with-no-value lives on for another day.

    But what comes after Sickening? Healing. Restoration. A return to health and vitality and equilibrium. That lies just ahead for We Who Refuse To Stay Sick.

    And let’s be Quick about that.

      What a novel idea. Let the people keep their money so they can actually spend it in the economy, thereby boosting productivity and the GDP!

    I keeping with “The Sickening Quickening” please enjoy the song “Get Down with the Sickness” by the band Disturbed. You can find lyrics and video online if you so desire.

    The basic gist is as follows:

    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Open up your hate and let it flow into me

    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    You mother get up, come on get down with the sickness
    You fucker get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Madness is the gift that has been given to me

    I can see inside you
    The sickness is rising
    Don’t try to deny what you feel
    (Will you give in to me?)
    It seems that all that was good has died
    And is decaying in me
    (Will you give in to me?)

    Honestly, this is what I don’t get about this crew: you know what’s happening, but rather than seizing the moment, many would rather waste their time and energy complaining, or even more revealing, cracking sarcastic remarks.

    To wit, we know the debt based system is based on growth. After all, how is accrued interest to be paid? By further expansion of the money supply driven by increased financialized production/consumption. QED

    So, we know the end of FF abundance means less consumption, therefore less production, resulting in decreased demand for overall credit. This situation of course is the death knell for our present monetary system, so what is the only viable solution from a continuity of government (CoG) POV?

    Keynes had the answer: the government itself acts as a collective consumer, stepping in as a substitute for individuals and businesses. But as the fixed limits of actual input availability are reached, the only effect is inflation.

    We *know* this; Elite thinkers of course know this. So, why the snark about the most recent spending bills flying through Congress? They/we don’t have any choice – it’s either spend (expand) or die.

    So, why are people trying to demonstrate their superior intellect by mocking the names and pointing out the obvious? Think they should name them MMT 1, 2 and so on, ad infinitum? Just come clean with the los estupidos aka marks aka American citizens? Where the fun in that?

    Let’s take a moment and talk about nuclear energy a bit, shall we?

    First, I’ll lay it on the line: I guarantee nuclear power (ie generated electricity) will enjoy not only a renaissance, but actually experience a manic period of rushed development and infrastructure build out.

    Why? Simple, cheap, reliable electricity is the best solution that allows the continued roll out of a comprehensive digital pass system.

    Nuke power not only keeps the lights on, the AC blowing, heat running, fresh water pumped in and yucky pooh water pumped out, but it also allows for economical hydrogen and other source element fracking.

    Why is this important? Nitrogen, potassium and phosphorous my friends. In other words, fertilizer, or more simply, food.

    So, add it up: people still eat, they live comfortably in their pods, they take mass or shared EV transit, they’ve got VR and drugs to get them through the day, and … the existing power structure remains in place.

    • Slugoon August 8, 2022 at 3:29 pm #

      I remember being around 20 years old when I had the thought that electrification would be the future, since it could be generated in so many different ways (being a carrier of energy and not a source). Of course, things like planes ain’t gonna fly as they do now but, yes, your last paragraph.

      The reason I hate EVs so much is that I’m a contrarian. If they explained what they were trying to achieve with them rather than dupe everyone into believing that they are in themselves ‘good for the environment’ I might get on board.

      • mitchellc August 8, 2022 at 5:15 pm #

        The first rule of rulership club is that you don’t talk about it.

        Selling green dreams is preferable to a frank admission of scarcity, because it can be positioned as a virtuous, (global) community effort rather than a grim fight for survival.

        My constant theme here is that the elite plainly telegraph every move. They don’t mind, because while most are too stupid to understand the implications, the few who do get it reliably act in a contrarian manner.

        I mean, if Jim didn’t honestly feel the way he does, this site would be the perfect proving ground for that basic psychological principle. I can almost imagine a proverbial $1 bet over proving expected reactions.

    • Anthea August 11, 2022 at 5:40 am #

      @ mitchellc:

      Yes, nuclear energy is rather obviously the best and only way to sustain modern technological civilization. It’s my understanding that nuclear waste can be recycled through the reactors so that it then remains unsafe (and requiring sequestration) for only about a hundred years before it becomes harmless. Also, apparently thorium reactors do not produce much, if any, nuclear waste to begin with. But I have read that the recycling of nuclear wastes was made illegal (I think by Jimmy Carter), and no one is interested in thorium reactors because they don’t produce byproducts that are useful for making nuclear weapons.

      Safe nuclear power generation is possible, but has been either outlawed or not pursued.

      Sure, it would make sense to develop nuclear energy in a big way–and thus keep the lights on.

      Thing is, I see little indication that the PTB want to keep the lights on. In fact, they seem determined to turn out the lights on Western Civilization by making cheap, reliable energy in any form inaccessible to the masses. So I have my doubts about nuclear being the wave of the future. (Except maybe in China.)

      It’s also not clear to me that the PTB are particularly rational or sensible in their planning. But this is difficult to evaluate, since I don’t know their goals. Depriving the world’s people of energy makes sense if your objective is to kill almost everybody.

    I am sort of amazed at the lack of logic being used by people who comment here in defense of Trump.

    If he was too weak or compromised to beat back the meanies, and he was powerless to fire Fauxi and his hands were tied so that he couldn’t hire RFK, Jr. instead, or listen to Dr. Atlas, and if he was forced to push Operation Warp Speed, and he is powerless to help the J6 people (and in fact condemned them) what do you think he could do by being put back in office?

    This makes zero sense to me.

    • Roundball Shaman August 8, 2022 at 3:32 pm #

      “I am sort of amazed at the lack of logic being used by people who comment here in defense of Trump… This makes zero sense to me.”

      ‘Belief’ in Trump is a form of religion. A large segment of the population today needs to believe in ‘something’. That something has to be appear to be in opposition to the current power-sitters. There are not a lot (or any) of Nationally-known alternatives to the Dark Siders who are currently in control of this rendering of government. Trump pretty much solely serves that purpose and thus a cult of belief has been erected around him.

      And it must be observed that the current blind allegiance by many to the current White House Chair Sitter and the Party that he represents is another form of modern-day religion.

      Both Trump and ‘The Resident’ are savior figures to their base of believers. They both present gospels of salvation to save us all from the evil doers of the ‘Other Side’ who represent The Devil. Saving the climate… saving us from racism… saving the economy… saving The Children… save after save after save. Messiahs from ages gone by were never as busy as the saviors of today proclaim to be.

      And what is the point about Belief? ‘Believing’ in things that are not yet seen. In other words, real results. The Believers just have faith and don’t need proof or evidence.

      • Islander August 8, 2022 at 3:59 pm #

        Re “‘Belief’ in Trump is a form of religion. A large segment of the population today needs to believe in ‘something’. ”

        the converse, or the inverse, is also true. Trump has achieved the interesting distinction of functioning as both a modern saint and martyr and as evil incarnate. Even though his “presence” in our national politics seems to be somewhat ghostly.

        The satan case is demonstrated by the continued practice of people cubbyholing anythinging negative in the Trump box.

        E.g., yesterday my bro helped me maneuver my AC unit into my window, on the third floor, over a busy sidewalk. I said, “I used to be able to do this by myself, but now I worry about dropping it on the sidewalk.” His retort: “You might get lucky and hit a Trumper.”

        This type of comment issues from his and his wife’s mouth on a regular basis. Guy cuts in on Route 1 north of Boston: “Probably a Trumper.” I ask about their neighbor across the street from their new down-sizing retirement house in Maine, who has an extensive, quirky garden. “He is OK, but a bit strange. He might be a Trumper.” Etc. I say nothing.

        They are not sure where I stand on Trump, but they suspect that I am not firmly of the “Trump = satan” camp, so these comments are also intended as ongoing digs at one whom they suspect of being a Trumper.

          For a long time… politicians were just that. Politicians. People dealt with them when they had to and largely never thought about them and just went about their lives. People did not obsess over politicians and Parties or turn them into gods and devils as is the Civil Religion in America today.

          But then… Life became more complicated. Uglier. More contentious. Things started to go wrong. Traditional religions became weak and disgraced and ignorable so they no longer spoke to the spiritual needs of people.

          Good jobs were sent away. Social norms were shattered. People saw their bosses and the owner-class getting much richer while they were getting poorer. And people needed someone and something to blame for that. Enter… politicians. That’s when we turned them into the gods and devils and bigger-than-life figures they are today instead of the political hacks for hire that they always were. And still are.

          And Talk Radio and Partisan Cable News came along to feed the fire. 24/7 every day all day of, ‘We are Right and They are Wrong and Awful’. Without end. Same thing every day. Year after year.

          What’s the end game to all this? When people discover good purpose again in Life and quit looking at dullard hacks for hire and turning them into gods and devils. Go back to what they were before: Mostly out of our sight and eminently ignorable.

            There was a mass awakening that the Left was at war with us – and that the Democrats had gradually but firmly become the Left en masse. More: Not only was there a War on, but that had it been going on for a long time – and that we were losing badly.

            Or forbears? The John Birch society. They have been proven to have been right about everything. Of course their leader was a traitor and they refuse to talk about race. But other than that…..

            Jarek: “There was a mass awakening that the Left was at war with us – and that the Democrats had gradually but firmly become the Left en masse.”

            The thing about ‘Awakening’ is that becoming better aware and awake is a process and not a destination. One never gets to an end point.

            BUT… one at least has to be on the Awakening Road itself. Trying to become awake. Taking big steps or small. And political parties and political hacks and those who have adopted politics as their religion are on the totally wrong road. A road of taking orders and following them… deifying badly flawed human beings and turning them into wise oracles. In other words, anything but awakening.

            One major Party in America has historically allowed for more personal freedom from government – at least in theory. But both Parties are just overgrown cults that discourage original thinking and largely demand total obedience and submission to their gospels of self-promotion and office for hire.

            In many societies over the years it was assumed that their Leader was semi-divine. (To doubt this idea was to invite terrible consequences). In America we have now joined those more primitive societies. It just took us a little longer to join that cult of delusion.

          Beliefs and logic and Believers and non-believers and orthodox and heretics – oh my!

          Centuries ago when a European person was facing death or the possibility of death due to injury or illness, a priest or minister was primary in their thoughts as to getting help. Then after praying and talking to God, you’d consult with a physician next.
          The Christian god trumped the power of the “Science” god back in say the Middle Ages.

          Today our belief in “modern medicine” is stuck in our minds like our old religious beliefs once were, and for some of the same reasons. We transferred our faith in God to faith in doctors. Doctors are the priests of this new religion, and just like the Catholics, they have consecrated magic cookies (pills) to give you. These sacred hosts have the seal of authority stamped on them by a company with usually a German name.

          These new medical priests want the same as the old priests, and that’s at least 10 percent of your income. if you scoff at our “health care” system and refuse to use it for any other purpose aside from trauma, nearly everyone will question your mental health. You will be a medical heretic and instead of your soul being in mortal danger they’ll regard your body as being in danger. They’ll tell you that you’ve become a science heretic and will gossip about you behind your back.

          With this sort of widespread popular opinion about “modern medicine” – Trump would have stirred up the shitstorm of the century had he gone head to head with the medical establishment.

            Hey there RL. Sucking on willow bark is too old fashioned for me. There’s a health food/herb store near me that has the essence of willow bark for sale in a big jar. There’s a scale back there and I weigh out for myself of whatever herbal product I want. That’s much easier than shopping for bark.

            There’s a practical aspect to naturopathic medicine that is being ignored everywhere. But it’s something that clusterfucker fans may understand.

            Our “health care” system consumes some 20% of our economy, counting all aspects of the activity like the manufacturing of complex medical equipment. In past decades, we’ve had the surplus resources and capital to be able to afford paying twice to the medical priesthood that we once paid in tithes to the Christian priesthood. I think after Humpty Dumpty Dollar falls off the wall, the USA simply will not be able to afford our current health care system. We’ll be collectively too broke to afford sending physical resources into our hospital/medical system. Just as we’ll be too broke to afford supporting our current public education infrastructure. These buildings/temples will be scrapped or repurposed into something else like public housing.

            Once a dead dollar can’t purchase imports our remaining capital resources here won’t be used for purposes like maintaining hospitals or universities. Those resources will instead first go towards building new factories here on US soil. Otherwise we’ll have health care but no shoes, clothing, or access to private transportation. That just ain’t gonna work. The important stuff will come first. For instance, keeping geriatrics alive at fantastic costs, covered in bedsores and not knowing who they are – well – that sort of activity will have to wait for a while.

            The health care system we have now is using our fear of dying as a way of extorting money out of us. The Church plays/played a similar game. Give the church 10 percent of your income and you’ll be safe and happy. With the prosperity gospel, you give a tv preacher money and God will give you back at least double your money, or maybe a hundredfold! The Caths will save your soul if you confess your sins and eat magic wafers. Most orthodox believers in modern medicine will scoff at church scams and then turn right around and fall for a science scam – like man made global warming. Or like modern medicine can save your life…..

            @ cowbell81:

            I agree that sometimes a person has to go to the doctor–for some conditions. On the other hand, there are many more illnesses that can be easily and effectively treated through natural methods at home than people realize.

            People commonly go to the doctor for UTIs, for example. These are easily and quickly curable with echinacea. (If you take the capsules from Walmart, you have to take huge doses, but that’s because they’re very weak. A homemade tincture will do the job with much smaller doses.) Another one is pink eye. You can cure this by smearing castor oil over and around the eye. This works literally overnight if you catch it early. If you let it get out of hand, you have to use a castor oil pack. I’ve cured my own gall bladder trouble by doing a gall bladder flush. (As you get older, you have to do this from time to time.) I cured my Graves Disease by not drinking tap water. The condition gradually improved; it took about six months to effect a complete cure. I cured a neighbor’s kidney stones with a kidney flush program. I could give many more examples.

            Still, I am often stumped. There is no longer a naturopath in my area, and it can be difficult to find effective treatments for some things. I am diabetic, and it appears that my pancreas is so far gone that it can’t be controlled with diet alone. I believe there is a cure out there somewhere, but I will probably not live long enough to figure out what it is.

            But, as my doctor says, “We all have a birth date and a death date.” Any very great confidence in medical treatments, either natural or unnatural, implies that you think you can cheat death.

          • Anthea August 11, 2022 at 10:26 am #

            Diabetes is an interesting subject. Much of what i’ve read indicates that the cause of insulin resistance is that insuling can no long “unlock” the little ports on the lipid layer of the body’s cells to allow glucose to enter the cells and fuel them. Hence the glucose remains in the bloodstream, and presumably the body’s cells don’t get properly fueled.

            The cause of this is presumably that there is something “wrong” with the lipid layer of the body’s cells. It is speculated that the structure is wrong due to the consumption of industrial fats and oils. I.e., the body is forced to build its cells’ lipid layer out of the incorrect materials. So it doesn’t come out right.

            Now, if this were the whole story, you would think that you could cure diabetes by eating only natural fats for a number of years, until most of your body’s cells had been replaced. But I don’t think this works.

            It’s also interesting that apparently bariatric surgery permanently cures diabetes in about 50-60% of cases. How is that possible? Could it be that diabetes is caused by some kind of pathology in the portion of the gut that is removed in bariatric surgery?

            Also, blood sugar control is helped by some herbs and foods. In some cases, the effect seems to be purely mechanical; foods that contain high amounts of fiber slow the absorption of sugar. In other cases the herb’s action is unrelated to the fiber content. This makes me wonder what, exactly, its action is caused by.

            There is one herb, Gymnema syvestre, that has been used to cure diabetes in lab rats. (I think that this was in cases where diabetes had first been artificially induced.) While it is claimed to be helpful in humans, it does not appear to be a cure.

            To be honest, I have never found any of the herbs that are claimed to lower blood sugar to have much (if any) effect.

            The only food that I think may significantly lower blood sugar is poke salat–and that is based on very limited experience. I particularly like poke salat (which should only be eaten in the spring and is poisonous at other times), and I noticed some rather dramatic drops in my blood sugar after eating it this spring. But this might have been a coincidence.

          • Paula D August 11, 2022 at 7:47 pm #

            Anthea, here is something I remember from A+P.
            Insulin is used by your body to get glucose into the cells. The mitochondria in your cells manufacture ATP which gives you the energy.
            Fun side fact: Mitochondria are not part of your DNA, they are a foreign entity in all of your cells which come from your maternal side.
            Anyway, if you are exercising you don’t need insulin for the glucose to enter your cells. There is another mechanism that I can no longer remember which facilitates that.
            So doing strenuous exercise means that less insulin is needed for diabetics.
            I don’t know how much a Type 2 would need to keep your blood glucose stable. I would speculate that frequent exercise throughout the day might help.

    I admit that the idea of the long covid emergency and subsequent vax, could really have it’s roots in getting rid of Trumo. The subsequent vax campaign being nothing more than opportunistic greed. The following cover ups is simple criminal fear.

    I don’t think the covid op was put in place to get rid of Trump.
    In a sense, he was collateral damage, but very much welcomed.

    It could be argued that Trump missed the real opportunity to lead by falling for all the BS he, and the country, was fed.

    His response to the covid op was of a piece with his response to being elected president in the first place: He ‘excelled’ in choosing the worse advisors and team mates.

    This repeatedly revealed flaw of not recognizing true governing and policy-making talent needed to run the country and confront internal and external dangers and emergencies is highly ironic in light of his earlier TV persona, and makes the whole tale verge on the tragic.

    +++++

    JHK: “Most of these coming changes are beyond the control of government. They are historically emergent — the zeitgeist is in charge of them, not “Joe Biden” or Pete Buttigieg. The cheap energy age is over, and that salient fact will determine most of what happens going forward, including the inability of overgrown central governments to manage anything competently. The more grandiose their attempted work-arounds look, the more certainly they’ll fail. And, as that happens, government at the gigantic scale will shed legitimacy.”

    True words. This encapsulates our current moment.

      While I disagree that justice will be done and the perps prosecuted, I do like this part:

      JHK: “Most of these coming changes are beyond the control of government. They are historically emergent — the zeitgeist is in charge of them, not “Joe Biden” or Pete Buttigieg. The cheap energy age is over, and that salient fact will determine most of what happens going forward, including the inability of overgrown central governments to manage anything competently. The more grandiose their attempted work-arounds look, the more certainly they’ll fail. And, as that happens, government at the gigantic scale will shed legitimacy.”

      I don’t know as I would call it “the zeitgeist”–though maybe that’s the right word after all.

      I would call it “the times of the deluge,” akin to the destruction of Atlantis. In Timaeus, the Egyptian priest told Solon, ““There have been, and there will be again, many destructions of mankind arising out of many causes; the greatest have been brought about by fire and water.” The priest adds, “You remember a single deluge only, but there were many previous ones.”

      These thing are cyclical. The “signs of the times” that Jesus spoke of have never been more evident. We don’t see them easily, because, unlike the changes of the seasons or the weather, the timeframe is not on a human scale.

      The destruction of Atlantis was supposedly about 12,800 years ago. The near-destruction of all humankind that led to the “population bottleneck,” during which time the human population was reduced to about 3,000-10,000 surviving individuals worldwide, was about 74,000 years ago.

      I think we’re looking at something on that kind of scale.

      If the world has ever seen anything like the worldwide corruption and viciousness of our present times, we have no record of it. And it kind of figures that any records would have been lost.

      This one will be a doozy.

            The vaccinated fare so badly against Omicron because vaccine-induced antibodies against the Wuhan Alpha spike protein are next to useless against Omicron. So the underlying progressive immune system damage wrought by incessant spike protein production has almost nothing to hide behind, nothing to offset itself against.

            We therefore see in these figures a much closer estimate of how much damage has been done to vaccinated people than we were able to see with delta figures for cases in the vaccinated and unvaccinated..

            The UK has 69.45% double or triple vaccinated, 6.41% singly vaccinated and 24.14% unvaccinated (ourworldindata). So we will be doing very slightly worse than the Germans – having slightly more vaccination victims.

            By the end of January every fully-vaccinated person in both countries over 30 years old will have full blown vaccine mediated AIDS (an acquired IMMUNE DEFICIENCY syndrome). However much of the immune system that is presently left with the ability to fight Omicron will have gone.

    You guys who are doubting Jim’s predictions about coming prosecutions are once again missing the big picture.

    Repeat after me: continuity of government. This means that above all else, the #1 priority is to maintain the status quo with respect to the Big 5: political, security, banking, media and industry.

    No one in any position of power has to be coached about 1776, 1792, 1917, 1933, 1949 and more recently, Sri lanka. The name of the game is to keep it going, even if major assets need to be cut loose and discarded.

    It’s like the situation with nuclear power – it won’t come about as the “right thing to do”, but rather as a concession to keep society functioning to the extent that a full surveillance and control system can be implemented.

    Watch for it; no matter how many are jailed, no matter how many are bankrupted, no matter how many lose their licenses, the USA, all 50 states (+territories) and the $USD will remain in place.

    Bank on it. Bank on inflation, bank on nukes, bank on mass/shared EV, bank on social stability. And then bank on the rollout of digital passes and other social control mechanisms.

    • BackRowHeckler August 8, 2022 at 6:04 pm #

      Yeah I was thinking about that. Above and beyond 800,000 police officers in the US, the courts, the prison system, prosecutors, parole officers, probation officers, sheriffs, county jailers, State Police, federal agents in every agency, prison guards etc. must account for tens of millions of enforcement nomenclature whose mission it is to keep the State going no matter what. The whole country could be a smoldering ruin from LA to NYC but there will still be people arrested by the thousands each day, tried in courts, and locked up in prisons. The prison/penitentiary system isn’t going anywhere no matter what. In fact it is likely to grow to immense proportions.

      Similar to the NKVD in the Soviet Union in the late 1930s. The NKVD and the Gulags system by then was the State; there was nothing else.

        Having narrowly escaped being an alumnus of one of the state penal institutions, brh, I was wonder about what sort of mechanism is in place to, ahh, “deal with” inmates in case of a general collapse.

        For instance,is there a Zyklon “B” release mechanism in place at the Supermax in Colorado, with an “abandon ship” signal for guards and staff to exit before the residents are put to sleep? In case of a general national disaster, you don’t want thousands of hardened criminals pouring into public places. So what do they plan to do about them? I doubt whether this has gone unnoticed, in contingency planning.

        A couple of years ago there was a hurricane that brought misery to the Southeast, and prisoners were among the temporarily inconvenienced sufferers. There was plenty of squealing about “drowned rats” but no fatalities reported.

        A compact neutron bomb would solve the problem of the social undesirables without ruining the real estate.

      All such records are the property of the Federal Government and under the Presidential Records act of 1978, cannot be pilfered like this by a sneaky little lying arsehole.
