MADDOW: … I think we should see this as the Justice Department putting these whack jobs in Arizona, forgive me, on notice, that what they`re doing is something they`re not going to be allowed to do for very much longer.

O`DONNELL: I think ‘whack jobs’ is now in The New York Times style sheet for describing what`s happening in Arizona.

— MSNBC 5/5/21

What you’re seeing now with the DC establishment are desperate moves to keep the suspicious and yet more pissed-off public from understanding the government crime spree of the past five years that started with the Obama gang using the Department of Justice to disable and terminate Donald Trump and the threat he represented to the network of special privilege and money known as the Swamp, which has managed to put a deep-fake president in office as a last resort to protect itself.

The urgent problem: how to squash the Arizona vote audit by branding it as an outlaw action, even though it was ordered under law by the Arizona State Senate. Having failed to stop it so far using the Swamp’s Lawfare cadres in the Arizona courts, the DOJ has called in its Civil Rights Division to get’er done, pretending that it will be an offense against people-of-color if auditors seek to know whether write-in votes correspond to actual addresses, and other particulars of election procedure that may have been violated.

Of course, the Arizona business is only one leak in a giant dike of official deceit built-up over the years to keep any truth from deluging the DC lowlands. Other leaks are springing in New Hampshire and Michigan, with a wormhole opening up in Georgia. It will be interesting to see if cable TV news can keep painting the truth as something against the public interest. As many times as they style election fraud “a conspiracy theory” and “baseless,” the public relations arm of the Democratic Party still has a hard slog convincing at least 80-million Americans that a detailed review of a contested vote is a bad thing.

Meanwhile, other breaches in the dike threaten to flood the low-lying Swamp zone with existential threats. The DOJ, the FBI, and other agencies are so saturated in crime that the only feasible damage control they can do is to haplessly commit more crimes against the common decency of the republic to cover up their old crimes. Hence, the seizure of Rudy Giuliani’s phones and computers in a 6 a.m. raid last week, leading to the incriminating disclosure that the FBI secretly accessed Giuliani’s iCloud account to spy on his correspondence with Mr. Trump in the fall of 2019 during the first impeachment preliminaries. Are you kidding me? Who gave the order for that? To violate basic attorney-client privilege during a legal proceeding of the highest order? And what was behind the Giuliani raid?

Among other things, the horror show of corruption in Ukraine, starring (but not limited to) Joe and Hunter Biden in their ceaseless quest for grift, but also featuring many of the origins of the RussiaGate hoax and its spin-offs, plus the involvement of State Department personnel such as Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and deputy George Kent, double-plus the shady activities of George Soros and his Atlantic Council in seditious activity working hand-in-hand with the CIA’s “whistleblower” (Eric Ciaramella) to damage Mr. Trump — who was impeached for simply inquiring about what was going on in Ukraine.

Mr. Giuliani had to conduct his own investigation into all that for the obvious reason that the usual US agencies who would ordinarily investigate official misconduct were actually perpetrating it: the DOJ, FBI, CIA, and State Department. And who, at the DOJ now, might be behind the current effort to neutralize Mr. Giuliani? Try Lisa Monaco, the new Deputy Attorney General, formerly one of Barack Obama’s chief White House fixers — i.e., an attorney detailed to shutting down investigations and covering the tracks left by questionable operations — and a protégé of former CIA Director John Brennan. Is the weak and pliable AG Merrick Garland fronting for her running the DOJ now? Joe Biden is going to need a whole lot of fixin’. And, is Lisa Monaco actually still reporting to Barack Obama? He can also probably use a fix or two. Who knows what’s coming down the pike? Just maybe a loaded semi driven by the nearly forgotten John Durham?

MSNBC might have made an unforced error on Wednesday scripting 10 o’clock troll Lawrence O’Donnell to diss former AG William Barr — some jive about Mr. Barr trying to mess with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s efforts back in 2018 to nail Mr. Trump on an obstruction of justice rap. Is this the time to piss-off Mr. Barr? You have to wonder. Is it possible that the FBI concealed its possession of the Hunter Biden laptop from Mr. Barr during those 2019 days of impeachment, when Mr. Trump was attempting to mount a defense for making a phone call to Ukraine? Who might be responsible for hiding that, if it were so? By the way, it was Mr. Barr who, just before resigning in late 2020, made John Durham a Special Counsel, whose work — whatever that might be, maybe nothing at all, maybe something consequential, nobody knows — can’t be blocked by Merrick Garland (or Lisa Monaco).

    I have looked into the eyes of the patriots more than once and have reported to my friends and associates that violence, controlled and targeted, is coming in response to the wanton corruption and abuse of power practiced from on high in this government. It will be coming down.

    • Beryl of Oyl May 7, 2021 at 10:17 am #

      I had been forming an idea, a metaphor, that Donald Trump was like a general trying to fight a war against communism without any troops.

      Then I realized that he does have troops, millions of them. That’s what they are afraid of.

      • ThorsHammer May 7, 2021 at 9:48 pm #

        Beryl

        Trump may have the troops, but is he a Leader? Kind of hard to be a leader when all you see when you look in the mirror is yourself.

        But he did have some good ideas.

        BUILD THE WALL.

        Not against the Brown workers from the south, but around the Swamp. Instead of just calling them names, build a 40′ high WALL with electrified razor wire on top and Teflon paint on the inside. Include the White House of course, but also all the office buildings and luxury penthouses housing bribery operatives (lobbyists) sellers of mass murder (the “defense” industry), the Corvid Drug Pushers) and Franken Food manufacturers. Round up all the Fortune 500 families who have profited beyond their wildest imagination from the activities of their captive politicians and drop them in the Zone by helicopter. Close all access to the Zone by air and build one-way checkpoints so that your can enter but your can not leave. (Cue up The Hotel California) Install thousands of traffic cameras so the Deplorables can watch the behavior of the rich and powerful when left to fend for themselves, live on the TV.

        Come on Trump— time to man up, put aside your golf clubs, and be the leader some believed you were. Fat chance!

      • MisterBimmler May 10, 2021 at 11:48 am #

        That’s why they had to kill Huey Long, JFK, RFK, toss Nixon into the mire and throw Trump into a solitary cell cut off from all communications. An Electronic Elba.

        They’re not afraid of the peasants whom they’ve been screwing over with impunity for decades. The closest we’ve come to doing what needed to be done was on January 6th. The peasants did the right thing for all the wrong reasons. Forget a lost election, they should have rioted the Capitol because our representatives are corrupt. They haven’t for a very long time represented the will of the people. They have represented their own self interest for decades, and in cases like Mitch McConnell, have been rehired endlessly to do so.

            Of course he did.

            Christians used to need their wings clipped lest have too much power over the land. Then non-Christian religions needed protection from being overwhelmed by Christianity.

            Now Christianity is removed entirely from all State traditional pomp & circumstance.

            They are certainly making a concerted effort to discourage the practice of religion. I’ve seen it postulated that they would like to replace it with a state religion and climate change has been suggested as the new faith. An undercover journalist had lunch with a highly placed member of CNN recently, and she must have been quite good looking, because he went all out to impress her and told her that CNN was going to push the climate change agenda this summer.

          • O.G. Hawkins May 7, 2021 at 12:25 pm #

            Climate change is definitely a pillar of their goal to replace God.

    • Unperson37854 May 7, 2021 at 12:02 pm #

      Uncle, I am less optimistic. I think at best the future will be messy with no quick winners. Look at who they put in charge of rooting out extremism in the military? Bishop Garrison, if you don’t know who he is there’s a good article on him over at natural news. They essentially put an extremist in charge of defining who’s an extremist and dispatching of them.

      We see our FBI and CIA have gone full woke-tard. And our military are about to be purged of anyone apolitical to right of apolitical.

      Parents and local governments are late to the party with regards to getting critical race theory out of schools, and don’t address that it’s taught disguised as diversity, equity and inclusion. The damage is done there already as we see the fruit of that labor in a majority of kids in the 18-24 age-range embracing the omnipresent woke culture.

      Corporate America has fallen for the con and/or is paying protection money by wholeheartedly going along with it as they trip over each other to prove who worships their authoritarian masters more.

      Any call for justice or response to the wanton corruption will be perceived by the masses as unprovoked terrorism the agendas of which will be spoon-fed to them by the MSM – some sort of white supremacy movement no doubt. The masses know of no corruption because they aren’t allowed to ever hear the entire truth, only narrative.

      So simply put, the just seeking justice will not receive majority public support and will have to try to seek justice while being campaigned against by the MSM, a new marxist FBI, CIA and military, not to mention big tech and censorship of any information that could help with an understanding of reality over narrative.

      Unless there’s a great awakening, or such overwhelming numbers of people who say enough is enough to outnumber the apathetic woke, we’re in for a long ugly fight. And it may be that the marxists have to succeed completely in order for them to fail completely. Because until they do, they will always have half the country believing in the concept not realizing that it won’t work in practice.

      • Ron Anselmo May 7, 2021 at 12:13 pm #

        Unperson – your vision is very clear.

      • Ron Anselmo May 7, 2021 at 12:24 pm #

        Garrison may simply serve to divide the military. Any real “insurrection” must have a military component – even if a minority. The January 6th gathering was awaiting a component, that never materialized – a test.

        Had it happened, obviously a different outcome. The support was not there yet, tested, but not there. Maybe Garrison divides the military, so that the patriots, true to the Constitution realize that it’s a now-or-never moment.

        We’ll see.

      • Slugoon May 7, 2021 at 1:25 pm #

        Nice post, Unperson, and I think you’re right, it may lurch on for a few generations before anything changes. You gotta to go there to come back.

        Your penultimate paragraph resonated with me as this is how I felt during Brexit campaigning. It felt like everything was against us. We were mocked and sneered at by mainstream media. The establishment and big business was all pro-EU. It was socially unacceptable to hold anti-EU views. And yet we prevailed.

        I see a lot of parallels with both the Covid response and the general state of affairs over in the US: media and government peddle an ‘official narrative’. Anybody questioning it is cast out as a pariah or conspiracy theorist. Evidently there are enough of you questioning it, a silent majority maybe, to put up a fight. Good luck to you. I hope you can get organised.

  2. Beryl of Oyl May 7, 2021 at 10:13 am #

    Good morning.

    Nice, clear summation of current events which are deliberately foggy.

    It does remind me a little of that line from Casey at the Bat, about the hope that springs eternal, though.

    Trust Durham, he’ll save us?! I wish. But we have to face facts. The evil ones are deeply entrenched in power and could not be removed when Trump was is office. What makes you think they can be removed now?

    • Beryl of Oyl May 7, 2021 at 10:31 am #

      Some people think that Donald Trump at least blew a lot of their cover.

      I’ve been saying for years that the FBI was worse than useless, a lot of pro-law and order types are now saying the same thing.

      There are some young Republicans attempting to purge that party of the last vestiges of the Bush influence. I’m not to sure about how that’s going to go, just because you are anti-Bush it doesn’t mean you are good for America.

          • Wizard of the Saddle May 7, 2021 at 4:22 pm #

            beryl – Don’t leap to that conclusion so quickly. Examine the votes where the proposed replacement for Cheney broke ranks with Trump. Trump was great in many ways, but he did not always take correct positions on every issue. For example, Trump was wrong to ban bump stocks by E.O. A clear violation of the 2nd Amendment that Trump committed purely to pander to squishy headed suburban soccer moms who are always for “common sense gun controls. The bump stock ban was recently tossed out by the judiciary branch. It couldn’t stand constitutional muster.

            I don’t automatically trash Republican Congressmen/women for parting ways with Trump. I’m more interested in knowing when and WHY they parted ways on those occasions when they felt it was necessary. If it was to advocate for more conservative, responsible, constitutionalist, and nationalist reasons, then I stand with them over Trump in those instances.

          • Night Owl May 7, 2021 at 6:16 pm #

            Wiz, that is a good point.

            Trump’s greatest weakness was trying to play the middle too much. On some level he assumed good faith.

            The problem was that the people he was trying to get along with are reprehensible.

        • Yohannon May 7, 2021 at 12:10 pm #

          Trump could do something incredible for America if he were to switch to a 3rd Party. But he doesn’t have the sense or the balls, or he’s just a stooge now – or always was.

          Not create his own Party. We’ve had enough of his grandstanding.

          • Hereward the Woke May 7, 2021 at 1:20 pm #

            I think Trump did his best but now he’s done. We need someone far more ruthless and savvy than he is. And anyone who thinks this will be sorted by voting is deluded.

            We need De Santis of Florida for president, IMHO. He looks better than most other contenders right now based on his track record. Trump should now focus on creating alternative American nationalist media platforms to provide patriots with online places to gather and opine without being censored.

            The West must survive, and the assault is global. There are many here who feel it. I have thought about moving back to the States to Fl. or S. Dakota, but the fact is, we are all in this together.

            “the grid is such a soft target–”

            Do people even imagine how true that is?

            A few years back I was driving out to the West Coast and decided to take an alternate route to see the Grand Coulee Dam. Pulled up to a view spot along a two lane road. There in front of me was a huge array of transformers with most of the electrical wires from the largest hydroelectric project in North America leading to it. Protected by a single chain link fence.

            Fifteen miles away is a large farm town where all the components for a monster fertilizer bomb are readily available.

            Do you have any idea what a single pissed-off farmer could do to the entire economy of the western USA if he felt like it? Or how many months it would take to replace that single transformer farm?

            To say nothing of a neutron bomb delivered in a box truck to almost anyplace near New York City that would fry any electronic device including all the computers at Wall Street and every ECU in every car and truck?

      Trump didn’t make much if any effort to remove the evil ones who were entrenched in power. The U.S. electorate is responsible for most of them being there in the first place.

      Speaking of Evil Ones, how very disappointing that the Microsoft divorce turns out to just be about Bill’s appetite for raping young girls — a perversion shared by many grotesquely rich old men as they near the end of life.

      One would have hoped Melinda’s revulsion would have had to do with the Gates Foundation’s re-introducing Polio to India in the course of vaccine development, or Bill’s dream of vaccinating the entire world with an Operating Program that would allow implementation of Apps by the Malignant Overlords (himself) to control almost any aspect of herd behavior.

      I’m sure many people other than myself have noticed the increasing signs of psychological derangement in the speeches and public behavior of this particular Evil One over the past couple of years—.

        Both have stated publicly they will continue to work together in their foundation. Article at Fox today quotes an unnamed insider that they are hopeful they will still win a Nobel prize for their philanthropic work.

        Well hell, if Obama won for pretty speeches, why shouldn’t Bill and Mel also get the prize? So what if quite a few poor souls were damaged or died from Gates Foundation funded flawed vaccines?

        50 years ago Karl Malden and Michael Douglas starred in a TV show titled “Streets of San Francisco”. A remake today would have to be titled “Streets of Human Feces”.

        Instead of “I Left my Heart in San Francisco”, we could sing “I left my Cow Pie in San Francisco”.

        Any thoughts on this, people?

            I’m sure someone can do something with these lyrics.

            One of the songs of my youth, because we got an ice rink in nearby Billingham when I was in my teens, and they played this endlessly (often as the ice slowly melted because they hadn’t got the technology quite right).

            But here’s a thought.

            In most big cities the police will fine you if your dog poops on the sidewalk and you don’t scoop it up. But if people poop, it’s OK. I never understood that.

        IMO, the biggest threat to a western civilization style existence are the critical theories being taught as early as preschool disguised as diversity, equity and inclusion. This teaching guarantees generations to come of naive sjws who see everything through the lens of race, gender, sexual orientation and class and the oppressor/oppressed dichotomy. This makes for an easily controllable population especially when you serve them up a steady diet of purposely invanquishable existential threats.

        Used to be that the critical theories were a minority elective fringe class to be taken in college. And now, like I said, the most extreme examples of what they could poison minds with is being taught to preschoolers. It is so mainstream that a majority of corporate America endorses it. Big Tech advocates and runs cover for it censoring debate. The MSM spins for it and more and more people in the mainstream are acting like it is some form of evolved future we must accept.

        All easy marks for the con. So it is here, like you said, an idea no longer constrained by borders or geography or access to information.

        We don’t even need “turd worlders”, it’s the ideology that’s the enemy, and anyone can fall for it and that’s the danger. Many turd worlders have a stronger work ethic than the indoctrinated domestic fools, and those fools want to turn the turd worlders into their pawns.

          H. L. Mencken nailed it:

          “The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed a standard citizenry, to put down dissent and originality.”

        • Wizard of the Saddle May 7, 2021 at 4:36 pm #

          Unperson – You are correct. Any effective cultural pushback, in my view, must consist of a comprehensive full frontal offensive against almost every university system and college in this country. The college student loan program should be completely abolished. State legislatures should exert greater efforts to rein-in campus Marxist faculty and administrators in state university systems. Teacher’s unions should be outlawed n public schools. Parents should home school and be extremely selective about where to send their teens off to college. Competing private colleges offering a traditional core curriculum similar to what Hillsdale College has done need to be established in every state. Many young people should not even be sent to college, but should enroll in trade schools instead.

          I’m sure others could chime in here with additional suggestions. But if we keep losing our youth to the Marxist Wokesters then this entire country is done for.

          • Wizard of the Saddle May 7, 2021 at 4:39 pm #

            Substitute the word PURGE for “rein in.”

            Marxists should always be completely purged and suppressed. No free society will long endure as FREE by tolerating their tyrannical machinations.

            I leave it up to others to decide how best to purge Marxists from our society. I have one favorite method in mind, but all law and order and governmental authority would have to collapse first.

    We previously had some discussion of IQ on this site.

    Rachel Maddow, I hd heard a lot of talk about her as some sort of force to be reckoned with, a real intellectual.

    Then one day a happened to be near a TV set when she was on it.
    This was that Oxford-educated genius?

    The word that came to my mind, and I forget what she was going on about, was “stupid”.

    Oh now I remember. It was Trump’s tax returns. The ones that ended up showing he follows the same tax laws as everyone else.

    Seriously, she already came out and said no one should take anything she says as any sort of fact, but just her opinions.

    That other one, O’Donnell, what’s her excuse? Surely she can’t believe what she’s doing there has anything to do with reporting, or even “journalism”.

      Lawrence O’Donnell is a man, and I remember watching his climb to the ‘top’ at MSNBC. Both of them are insidious idiots for their masters, so it doesn’t really matter how smart they are when it comes down to it. They perform like circus poodles for their owners. If Keith Olbermann hadn’t exposed his utter insanity, he’d still be up there too. Olbermann’s problem is that he can’t take any direction, which is a no-no in the world of squawking heads. I’ll give him credit for attempting ‘original thought’ even if batshit insane.

      I think he’s drifted around to other channels but never lasts long because apparently he’s impossible to work with.

      Sadly, these are the people who have forced the national “EQ” of professional class people down to double digits. Who cares if you have a 142 IQ if you’re limbic system has been hijacked and you now refer to critical thinking as “dumb and stupid”.

      These 3 over the course of years have helped mind-control and cult hundreds of thousands if not millions of people using tricks straight out of Bernays’ handbook.

        Well said. The con they’ve all falling for and are evangelizing to the masses (who then in turn fall for the same) is nothing new. This go around it’s manifested as some strange, identitarian, climate hysteria worshipping, victimhood celebrating, virtue-signalling, violence-endorsing puritanical-in-nature, absolutist religion. Closely resembling communist movements.

        But it’s all just cyclical eventualities playing out due to our human nature. The con doesn’t exploit the intellect (which is why anyone can fall for the con), instead it exploits the ego. Especially but not exclusively insecurity. This is far easier to exploit than the intellect (not that intelligence equates wisdom anyway). Feelings over logic.

        It also hits at a human nature survival instinct to maintain your status in the in-group versus being cast into the out-group. This threat (along with the threats to the ego) will make even the most (formerly or normally) logical person do mental gymnastics and hold to opposing realities true all to preserve their ego and chances at survival.

        • tully May 8, 2021 at 10:29 am #

          When Rhodes Scholars are mentioned, I always think of Kris Kristofferson. Yep, he’s one of them. Born in a military family, who pressured him to pursue a military career. He started it, becoming an army ranger and helicopter pilot before resigning his captain’s commission in the mid sixties.

          Story is he landed a helicopter on Johnny Cash’s lawn to give him a song Kristofferson had written, thus starting his career.

          I’ve read that some believe Kris was a CIA asset throughout his career; who knows? He wrote some fine songs and is certainly easy on the eyes. 😉

          Maybe there are a few good Rhodes Scholars?

          • Blackbird May 8, 2021 at 12:07 pm #

            I found Kristofferson’s career to have been absurdly magical. Army helicopter instructor pilot, lands a job servicing oil rigs (ka-ching!), throws it all away to mop floors at Sun Studios. As the guy in Stalag 17 said after receiving a letter from his wife explaining that she wasn’t really screwing around, “Sure, I believe that”. Then I found out that he was a Rhodes scholar. That explains it all.

        Maybe, maybe Durham is just another Deep State stooge and did not need any convincing

        I have said it before, the Deep State only had one person in itself that was not Deep State during the past four years. Only one man that was willing to put himself on the line for the conservative cause and even a big portion of his own supposed Conservative party stabbed him in the back. Fourth year, they got to him finally, who knows how and he withdrew in self-defense.

        I agree with those that believe the government at all levels are saturated with the Democrat gimme culture, give people money for doing nothing to get their vote. Ladies and gents, we may be outnumbered.

        BTW, I am watching the talking heads trying to explain a very lame monthly jobs report on people not wanting to go back to work because of all the welfare packages. Is that a kick in the ass, business owners not getting applications because people do not want to work.

        Gives you a little reluctance to believe that UBI is feasible. The people are too gimme to allow it to work.

          The schools refusing to reopen has a lot to do with the shortage of workers.

          The teachers union and the CD both want to keep it that way too.

          Forcing people out of work and paying them not the salary they were losing, but the equivalent of the desired 15 dollar minimum wage had nothing to do with a virus.

          Anyone notice that a judge just ruled that the takeover of private rental property by the CDC was unconstitutional?

          These things were goals of the extreme left, implemented under the guise of stopping a virus.

          You can expect to see a lot of stories about how if these employers want workers, they will need to pay more, and also see a move to unionize supermarket workers, already roiled by the fact that they toiled in a face diaper and behind plexiglass, while others deemed non-essential stayed home and made more money than they did.

          It will never dawn on anyone that while fifteen dollars an hour is far better than whatever the minimum wage is, it will never equal the unemployment wage which was based on 40 hours.

          Full time jobs are a rarity in many many fields today.

            The thing is that gravy train can’t last forever without consequences. Eventually printing money out of thin air will result in inflation, then what are those $15/hour going to mean anyway when it nets out at you keeping less than you were when making $12/hour?

        • Night Owl May 7, 2021 at 6:25 pm #

        Too bad Sean Hannity can’t pay O’Keefe to find Durham and stick some mics in his face.

        Would be a tell to watch Durham run away and slip into a government SUV with blacked out windows.

        Or maybe he would sing for O’Keefe! That would be a refreshing change of pace.

        This is correct. My view is that if Trump were controlled by the GOP Establishment, they would have moved Heaven and Earth to defeat the massive election frauds and Trump would be in his second term right now. But, since Trump was working tirelessly to transform the GOP into a patriotic nationalist party by purging it of any RINO’s who would not get with his program they decided to let him twist in the wind when the BIG CHEAT happened. Most culpable in this were GOP judges federal and state benches and justices on the SCOTUS.

      • Harry Bolsogna May 8, 2021 at 1:41 am #

        It’s impossible to work in a vacuum anymore, especially within the federal government. Every key stroke is recorded, every file opened, viewed, edited is tracked. Not to make excuses, but it’s impossible to imagine that one person (Durham) could be moving forward with an investigation without his network knowing everything that he’s doing. One aspect of how much the tech world has undermined our ability to stage a robust challenge to TPTB.

    Once again, Jim has done a magnificent job of gathering and analyzing the rampant malfeasance in our “justice” system and, as we have seen throughout the past five years, there will be no justice. Corruption is too pervasive and its perpetrators too unified.

    Things continue until they no longer can, and then they don’t. Nor will these. But there will be no remedy provided by the system, because the problem is the system.

      Agreed. Too many conservatives still talking about “2022” and “2024” and “Trump’s second term”. This is way, way beyond voting. The system is beyond redemption and the only hope is bypassing DC with some form of secession. It’s already happening in a soft version, as red states cancel federal pushes on gun control and China flu stuff. That needs to continue until no-one is listening to DC anymore.

      • Wizard of the Saddle May 7, 2021 at 5:02 pm #

        HTW – I tend to agree with this view, but please note that much of the frenetic activity by GOP legislatures and governors right now is all aimed at giving themselves the tools to exercise state nullifications of excessive federal actions by the Biden regime.

        Nullification is what states do to warm up long-unused muscles for the possibility of future secession.

        What people need to understand is that the issue of secession has never been well and truly settled as a matter of Constitutional law. Not really. What did happen was the right was suppressed by force of arms, nothing more, and then Texas v. White was used as a fig leaf to weakly try to cover up what the unionist tyrants had done – which was violence to the foundational concept that all legitimate government must derive its legitimacy from the active consent of the governed.

        That consent was formally withdrawn in 1860-61 by the Ordinances of Secession passed in the Southern States. The response of the tyrannical minded was to provoke the Sumter crisis to provide a pretext for the federal government to invade the Southern States and use BAYONETS as a substitute for CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED.

        This is why Jefferson Davis rightly observed that a constitutional question that is “settled” by FORCE, is not truly settled at all, and that the constitutional issues that led to the War to Prevent Southern Independence would merely reassert themselves again at another time and perhaps in another form.

        • Yohannon May 8, 2021 at 12:51 pm #

          Ditto the use of bayonets in Little Rock, Arkansas, to impose bussing on White Southerners.

        • Tekapo May 8, 2021 at 2:49 pm #

          Jefferson Davis can observe all he wants, but by 1860 no country in the civilised western world was going to tolerate slavery, and it had to end.

          Personally I would not have gone into a hot war, but just starved the rebels out over a few years. Run blockades and trade bans, etc.

      • Tekapo May 8, 2021 at 2:45 pm #

        Agreed. Too many conservatives still talking about “2022” and “2024” and “Trump’s second term”. This is way, way beyond voting. The system is beyond redemption and the only hope is bypassing DC with some form of secession.

        I think it is very much about 2022 and 2024 – but I don’t think there’s any chance Trump will run again (or Biden, for that matter).

        And what is the alternative to democracy, elections, and government via representation? Another civil war? That is not a solution to anything.

        Republican states are already full-bore into their voter suppression law-making (Georgia, Florida, and Texas among the worst). They know full-well they can’t win a fair popular election, so you make voting as inconvenient, difficult, and even unsafe, as you possibly can.

        Some Republican legislatures are demonstrating all too clearly that states cannot be trusted to run fair, full-franchise, federal elections because of such egregious laws, and that’s before we discuss blatant gerrymandering.

        There is no secession possible … there is so much division within states. More states are closer to 50-50 than they are full-tilt red or blue. What are you going to have? Houston, Dallas, and Austin seceding from the rural counties of Texas? It couldn’t possibly work. And the ugly issues of racial divide would be even worse.

        Some sort of regionalised break-up might be possible, but not this generation, one wouldn’t think.

    The harsh truth is that if there was nothing to find in the Arizona election votes then the Democrats could sit back and allow the Republicans to humiliate themselves. However they are fighting tooth and nail to shut it down which screams, if not outright fraud, that they know the whole thing was janky and are afraid of exposure.

    As many times as they style election fraud “a conspiracy theory” and “baseless,” the public relations arm of the Democratic Party still has a hard slog convincing at least 80-million Americans that a detailed review of a contested vote is bad thing.

    Tekapo ridiculed me a couple of weeks ago for saying this.

    Audits aren’t bad. How can an audit be bad? Short of some unimagineable objection, how can one logically be against auditing these contested results? [Note: President Trump has never conceded the election.]

    If President Trump’s claims are “baseless” (as we have heard ad infinitum like a dictate from on high, i.e. Capstone), you would think that all Americans would want audits in all contested States ASAP. Would not you?

    Things are going binary now. All will be revealed.

    Anybody clinging to the ludicrous thought:

    Verifying mail-in votes with Real American addresses and Real American citizens living there casting the ballot for the presidency of the country is racist.

    is corrupt. End of story.

      Audits aren’t bad. How can an audit be bad? Short of some unimaginable objection, how can one logically be against auditing these contested results? [Note: President Trump has never conceded the election.

      Audits aren’t bad in general. But the whole point of them is to have independent, disinterested and non-partisan entities running the audit – without fear of any result they find.

      That is not what we are seeing in the Coliseum in Phoenix. What we have is a highly partisan pro-Trump crew, called the Cyber Ninjas if you can believe it, who have no experience or track record in election audits and forensic recounts.

      I particularly like the microscopes brought in to see whether ballots have traces of bamboo in then, because there are “accusations” that 40,000 dodgy ballots came over from China. I trust they also test them for panda paw-prints, and perhaps tiny droplets of soy sauce.

      Can you blame me (or anyone else) who might just suspect that they are being paid by dark-money to do a hit job?

      But as I said last week – I think the Republican Party is screwing the pooch on this one (and I don’t just mean what Rachel Maddow was talking about – that leaving ballots unsecured all over a basketball court might just be a federal crime) … I mean if they had any genuine suspicion that there was election fraud, they would employ the squeakiest clean audit company, whose report would have credibility.

      But they haven’t done that, so we ask the question why. I don’t know whether there are 200,000 fake ballots from Azerbaijan in Maricopa County, but if the “Cyber Ninjas” come out and say so, only the already convinced are going to believe it.

      You do have to wonder why some people just read and ingest it all as truth. They don’t even consider the bias as important, even if they notice it’s there.

      I know plenty of “highly-educated” folks who do just that with the NYT. Read it top to bottom daily, and insert every nugget as fact into their reality and just move on with their day. No matter how obvious and illogical the slant may be. e.g. sub-headlines like “Critical thinking, as we’re taught to do it, isn’t helping in the fight against misinformation.”

            Left has flipped on every principle (real environmentalism, private freedoms, checking abuses from big business and govt). Their only consesus is unhappiness, and their only purpose is to express that emotion, acquire power by any means as platform to vent that emotion while offering no substantial alternative ideas.

            This onset of ungrounded emotion should be easy to counter… but unfortunately the right is actually mired in something very similar (all emotion, no substance) with no real ideas of their own to counter with.

            Many including Noam Chomsky have long opined that the uber-educated are the easiest to brainwash, because they are indoctrinated in universities. So this isn’t new, them adhering to everything the official ‘news’ sources say. The problem is the news sources went off the rails and they didn’t notice, because their indoctrination is so strong to ‘believe authority.’

            Some did, but we’re a minority. The rest let their very moral base become completely compromized. And now they have had to deal with constant congnitive dissonance for so long they don’t even trust their own eyes.

            They loathed the FBI and CIA.

            But now? Government can apparently do no wrong and aren’t the CIA and FBI great! How do people manage such a complete reversal in world view?

            Yes … it’s a long way from Kent State to today. I think it’s mostly just got older – and in many cases got a bit richer, and more conservative.

            But those times were a crucible – against the Vietnam War, for Women’s Liberation, Gay Rights, Native Rights, the environment, nuclear disarmament … it was quite a list.

            The heroes changed, universities changed, so did art, music, and literature.

            But I think you overstate the case … a huge number of people (not just the old yippies, hippies, lefties, and commies) are still very distrustful of “the state” – CIA, NSA, FBI as well. We know they are not there to look after the health and happiness of ordinary people – they are the legalised, legitimised, and ruthless, Swiss Guard of the ruling elites – and will go to extreme lengths to protect the wealth and privilege of the top 10%.

            The most recent problem in all this was Trump – he came in and kicked up the hornets’ nest, and changed a lot of stuff – but none of it in a good way.

            I thought he was a very bad president on so many levels, but his claim – that has now spread as far as the Arizona Senate – is that an election is fraudulent if Republicans don’t win.

            Tekapo — He is not saying that at all. He is claiming circumstantial evidence of fraud. You are stating a falsehood. –JHK Admin

            That is hugely destructive, and Trump deserves a lot of opprobrium for that. It’s not just that he’s a sore loser – he has for his own gains, destroyed faith in a democratic system.

            To the extent that there is one – after the law changes in Georgia and Florida it’s fairly clear that notwithstanding the Constitution, the red states cannot be trusted to conduct fair elections. They know full well that if it’s easy to vote, Republicans lose.

            Some others, 461.51%, 215.21%, 205.07%, 139.29%, 120.00%, followed by ten districts at 100%,

            I was just alluding to the fact that Donald Trump said repeatedly during the campaign that “The only way I can lose this election is if it is rigged”, or words similar. Hardly a ringing endorsement of the democratic process.

            And the Arizona Senate is only doing a recount on races that the Republicans lost – president and senator. I have no idea whether there was election fraud in Phoenix or anywhere else, but the audit process set up by the Arizona Senate looks fairly unconvincing.

            Yo, they believe that “we” think it’s wrong, and they think we are ignorant rubes.

            The reality is many if not most of the anti-vaxxers come from the same ranks as these sneering liberals do, most are educated white women, in my experience, and they aren’t like we’ve been told they are.

            Look how the MSM in conjunction with Big Pharma played people into taking a politicized stance in favor of the Gardasil vaccine.

            I have no problem with vaccines, or a vaccine to prevent some strains of cancer, but they way that one was introduced, as one that enlightened parents would demand for their daughters, to show those Bible thumpers who were against it a thing or to, certainly gave me pause, as did the fact that politicians were immediately starting to sign legislation that all little girls receive the shot?

            As it turns out, that vaccine had problems. That should always be a red flag, when you see politicians and the MSM pushing any new drug or treatment hot and heavy.

          You mean if it’s easy to vote 7 times. Evidence – yes, evidence -introduced in court, as an exhibit in the lawsuit against election fraud – yes – election fraud in Michigan, shows that the voter turnout in City of North Muskegon, was 781.91%.

          Somebody claimed these numbers in a lawsuit that didn’t get very far, and the figures have been debunked.

          If such things had occurred, it’s difficult to believe that the Michigan election officials (a Republican legislature) would have certified the election by the safe-harbor date of 8 December, no?

          Me: (*loudly!) She has a horrible cancer that frightens little girls like you. She is just doing it so you won’t be scared and run away.
          Or Me: She is an actress in horror movies. If people could see what she really looks they would have heart attacks.
          Or Me: She can’t stop drooling from the effects of the vaccine she took, so she needs it to collect all the slime to protect us.

          Daddy, why is that little baby’s face all covered up? How does it breathe?
          Me: Those people are child molesters. Stay away! Get your Bear Spray ready in case they come over here. ( We both carry his and hers Bear Spray in quick draw holsters for defense against vaccinated Super Spreaders.)
          Or Me: Honey, those people are child molesters. They cover their baby’s face to hide the bruises on its face.

        That is because 60% of the US population cannot critically think, biology.

        A succession of maturation processes exist that people go through, both with mental processing and socialization. Empathy, common sense, caring, love, control of anger, reduction of emotionality, come with maturation in the early twenties. Mental processing involves the transition from concrete, elementary learning to abstract critical thinking levels ie rational thought.

        Not everyone makes the transition, matter of fact, studies have said that potentially a majority of folks never achieve the maturation transition.

        Guess which political party I assign these immature personalities to. Also, where are the millions of under socialized immigrants going to give their support.

        The emotional reaction of the gimme generations in the Democratic Party have turned them into screaming banshees. Just listen to Maxine Waters! Do not waste time with rationalizing with them. Like undeveloped countries, the only thing they understand is power. The conservative, rational half of the US needs to learn to kick Liberal ass, one way or the other. Nothing else will work.

          How many of these young adults started on medication when they started school?

          I was discussing with someone a story I saw about a four year old girl being given medication so she could “focus” in school. It was my opinion that if one so young couldn’t focus on what they wanted her to without drugs, maybe she shouldn’t.

          The person I was talking with pointed out that starting medicine at the age where you start to learn such things would probably block her from actually developing mentally the way she should on her own.

          I think maybe that’s the case with many of our college age people.

          If you ask high school students for their opinions, they tend to tell you what they think other people think, and they don’t realize they are doing it.

          Usually in your twenties you develop better skills, but not if development is interfered with.

          Speaking of socialization, what is going to become of a generation sitting in front of a screen in lieu of attending class, missing out on clubs, sports, proms, and graduation ceremonies?

          • Unperson37854 May 7, 2021 at 12:59 pm #

            They don’t even need to drug the kids, the indoctrination they’re teaching them is anti-rational thought, anti-judging people by the content of their character, literally anti-merit. You are rewarded for your victimhood, your grievance, your ability to obey irrational orders and concepts. They are being taught to think in absolutes, see everyone as only a victim or an oppressor, no nuance. They are being taught collectivism equates survival. Deviation and independent thought equates cancellation. Never in my lifetime has a generation blindly trusted “the man” more.

            Where are the mavericks? Where are the rebels? When everyone is a sjw and can larp being a “warrior” against a steady diet of imaginary or overblown existential threats served up to them, then nobody is truly a warrior, but fighting in unison against what again?

            Several years ago Seroquel was approved for use in children as young as 6. This is a powerful antipsychotic with significant side effects. I asked the drug rep how the drug company she represented were able to do safety trials on children this young and know the long term effects on developing brains. “They just know, I guess!” was the answer — discouraging, to say the least. And doctors are incentivized to prescribe it.

            Hey OG-

            How do you explain the difference between the towers “blowing up” from the top and WTC7 falling in its own footprint from the bottom? They seem to be wired for destruction differently.

          • Ron Anselmo May 8, 2021 at 12:32 am #

            @RocketDoc

            The WTC1 & WTC2 Towers, did not “blow up” from the top.

            All three buildings were wired for destruction the same. All three buildings fell in their own footprints.

            The Towers had thermite charges ignited on the core columns, cutting & severing the columns by melting them, allowing the Towers to collapse vertically in their own footprints. Molten steel puddles in the basement, a pretty dead giveaway.

            Thermite burns at 4K degrees F. Steel melts at 2750 degrees F. Jet fuel in open air, burns at 1890 degrees F, not enough to melt steel – the official story.

            The core elevator shafts containing the core structural columns, were shut down at nights for about a month prior to 9/11, for “maintenance”, by a company called AMEC Construction. By a show of hands, who can guess who installed the thermite charges?

            Look into a book titled Crossing the Rubicon, by Michael Ruppert, “The Godfather of 9/11 Research”. IMHO, one of the best research books ever written, covering Peak Oil.

            For heaven’s sake, there had to be enough time to draft the “Patriot” Act, a 342 page document, so it could be immediately rolled out, and enacted sight unseen & unread by Congress, after which they sang God Bless America.

            I remember Bill Maher, my favorite Liberal, saying they all needed to get back to work, because the lobbyists weren’t going to blow themselves.

            Classic Maher, hilarity in a time which Pelosi would call “solemn”, as if she knows what the word means.

          • O.G. Hawkins May 8, 2021 at 12:26 pm #

            Well done, Ron. Thank you.

          • Ron Anselmo May 9, 2021 at 1:06 am #

            You’re welcome O.G., think nothing of it. Just like everyone else, I can remember exactly where I was that day, and can recall the day like it was yesterday. I’ve shared this same story with JHK in the past, on another channel.

            I was in a large conference room meeting with maybe 20 people on the morning of 9/11. The conference room had a large screen television, and upon news of the first plane hitting the first tower, we watched the rest of the day unfold in real time.

            An engineer by education, after the first tower collapsed, I simply said, “That’s a controlled demolition.” Head’s turned and stared in silent disbelief. Shock and/or cognitive dissonance.

            I left the meeting and went straight to the gun shop, to pick up the three guns I had purchased, as luck would have it, 10 days prior – the exact day the 10 day waiting period expired.

            There must have been 40 people clamoring for guns, and the owner was trying to explain that immediate purchases could not be made, were not legal, and there was a 10 day waiting period.

            When I waltzed in and said I’m here for my 3 guns and give me 3K rounds of ammunition, the crowd took the frenzy to another level, asking the owner why. It was mayhem.

            Next stop, the bank. Asked the teller how much I had in my account – about $25K – I said drain it. The manager said I could only have $5K, because a “state of emergency” was already in effect. Fine, I’ll be back for the rest.

            Back to the office to watch the second tower collapse in another “controlled demolition”. I’ve suspected the Government for many years prior, and therefore wasn’t in shock and didn’t suffer from the least bit of cognitive dissonance. There was no question in my mind what I was seeing. My only burning question was who was behind it.

            Fast forward to the first anniversary, 9/11/02. I wrote on my back windshield in white shoe polish, “just married” style, “One year – we want the truth.” People were slack-jawed, flipped me off, looked at me like I was crazy – still too raw.

            The vast physical evidence can’t be denied, these were without doubt controlled demolitions – for some reasons we know, and some we don’t – our Government was complicit by omission at best, and complicit by commission at worst.

            Some very interesting trades in the stock and futures markets on Monday 9/10, the day before. Airlines stocks extremely heavily shorted for no apparent reason – hundreds of millions made in the following days. By a show of hands, who thinks there was prior knowledge?

            Numerous documented war games going on the exact same day. Civilian air-traffic controller screens were overlaid with war game screens, making ID of civilian inbound planes almost impossible to sort out. The air-traffic control audiotapes have been misplaced. Maybe Epstein had them, and that’s why he killed himself.

            Hey, stranger things have happened. 9/11 was an inside job, and no one can tell me it wasn’t. The only remaining question is cui bono?

      Stick with not drinking alcohol or not smoking cigarettes or eliminating sugar from your diet or not reading the NYT or Washington Post or LA Times or a website like The Intercept for just 30 days and poof! You are over that shit!

      It’s like magic!

      I stopped reading The Intercept when the editor refused to allow one of the founders, Glenn Greenwald, (now at Substack) to publish an article about the NY Post and Hunter’s laptop prior to the election.

      So he quit and his readers quit with him.

      After the magic 30 days I literally forgot about The Intercept, they are so dead to me!

      I was attempting to read the New York Times this morning, but I couldn’t get half way through it.

      I subscribe to it … but I find it quite devious and dishonest. Not because it is too liberal or woke – it is superficially both of those – but because of its deep conservatism. It’s primary function is to support the system, and the status quo.

      It does have opinion pieces occasionally from people of the real left-liberal class, but overwhelmingly it is the paper for the upper-middle – those who are very comfortable with the way their lives are looked after.

      And its role in normalising the bizarre is enormous; same with the Washington Post. It didn’t matter what shenanigans Trump, his family, or his cabinet, got up too, the NYT would say “it’s just politics, both sides are like that”, etc etc.

      It’s quite infuriating – but I still read it – with a very critical eye.

      • JohnAZ May 7, 2021 at 3:53 pm #

        Who the fuck accuses the NYT of “Deep Conservatism?!?!?!!!”

        (Much less believes such a delusion?)

        Oh, Tekapo.

        Of course.

        • SpeedyBB May 7, 2021 at 9:07 pm #

          Conservatism, according to Wiki:

          “Conservatism is a political and social philosophy promoting traditional social institutions. The central tenets of conservatism may vary in relation to the traditional values or practices of the culture and civilization in which it appears. In Western culture, conservatives seek to preserve a range of institutions such as organized religion, parliamentary government, and property rights.[1] Adherents of conservatism often oppose modernism and seek a return to traditional values.[2][3]”

          Not exactly what NYT is up to but close enough. They support the corps, big biz, Deep State and its puppets. Isn’t that conservative enough? Or do terms get the big switcheroo these days?

          A lot of those on this forum who would term themselves “conservatives” are really pretty radical.

          (“Radical” being a virtue in the kind of desperate times we live in. The kind of sleaze represented by Kamala Harris cannot hold.)

            Thank you- someone who understands what I mean about the “conservatism” of the NYT – and in fact the Washington Post.

            They can be quite anti-Trump, and even hoping for Democrat victories in elections, but they can still be quite deeply conservative in their total adherence to business as usual and the capitalist | bureaucratic structures we have.

            They do not rock boats at any substantial level. It’s all about palace intrigue inside the Beltway between two “equal” forces. Nonsense in my view, but that’s what they are.

            They are hugely part of the establishment – and they have to be – they need to attract a big middle-spectrum audience who are not far-right or loopy-left. Those types are not going to buy a Lexus from the papers’ advertisers.

    An accurate assessment of current events and possible future scenarios James Howard. To those seeking control of various gov’t functions through intimidation, prevarication and medical tyranny (free speech control extended beyond Covid), arise and awaken. You’re absorbing too much of your own propaganda. Well over 80 MILLION are awake and analyzing the current attempt at illegal coercion re forcing an untested, possible deadly “jab” upon us for the “good of all”. No better control than justify loss of liberty for the good of society. Control of the narrative isn’t possible without a dept of truth to coordinate each msm outlet so no gaffs a’la o’donnel and Noah questioning masks for those jabbed. Bad form, which will continue to undermine the narrative for those 80+ million, allowing them to reference examples of duplicitous reporting to convert others.
    Include the economic catastrophe approaching, what will remain to control? Are the left really so blind they cannot see the ship of state right now broadsiding the iceberg of fiscal reality? As things get much worse on a personal level, I can easily agree with Abe’s projection of selective accounting visited on those deemed responsible, not ONLY politicians Rachel. Plan well. Nuff Said.

            You guys sound as irrational as the Dems. Let the data fall where it will. There is not enough reliable data right now to say one way or the other on the efficacy of the vaccine or its range of side effects.

            This is a result of the cover up by Biden and his mob. If the case load of the crud keeps decreasing, and yes it is, the vaccine will be lauded.

            And the drug reaction will be forgotten.

            “Anybody who believes the official bull shit of that Tuesday has a psychological protection mechanism that which maintains, at all costs, that we are ran by obscenely rich bumbling benign boobs.”

            A small question regarding your basic premise …

            Regardless of whether people believe 9/11 was effected by deep-staters or just exploited by them, why would those of us who didn’t think the US was run by bumbling benign boobs before 9/11 suddenly think so afterwards?

          • O.G. Hawkins May 7, 2021 at 4:13 pm #

            That is one convulted difficult question to grasp, GA. Rather than answer it, I will rephrase what I am saying:

            Anybody who believes the official bull shit of that Tuesday has a psychological protection mechanism that which maintains, at all costs, that we are ran by obscenely rich bumbling benign boobs or, at the very least, cannot allow the Reality that we are ran by Satanists who plan us massive harm.

            Does that answer your question?

        I have had “the covid protection treatment” and will witness to its dangers if I notice any. I advised my 29 yo daughter to pass on the opportunity just now, but she and my youngest son have made their own decisions…. Of the people who have gotten the shots– I have not heard of problems. My son’s 23yo roommate had Covid in October, a very mild case, lost smell/taste for several weeks but in January began to have unusual symptoms such as tachycardia, numbness in the extremities, extreme fatigue, and inability to think clearly. He has had these symptoms varyingly for 5 months…
        I believe the disease is more dangerous than the regular flu. I am content for you not to contribute to herd immunity and may the luckiest survive..

      You give cranial credit to a group that does not have much.

      Slightly less than half the US population see what is coming as an enormous threat. The majority have found away to cheat in elections and totally cover it up. The difference between the two is less than 2%.

      How can the minority now ever affect the future?

          Because the people want this disease behind them, including all the BS the government has utilized it for.

        • JohnAZ May 7, 2021 at 4:04 pm #

          Because all you give is unreliable data. Nothing to compare it to, no evaluation of very raw data. No one really seems to want to give a real evaluation of what is going on.

          Me, for example, I will get whatever vaccines they deem necessary in the future. Why? I have been there and done that and feel little threatened by a repeat.

          Unvaccinated folks do not have this advantage. They are stepping into an unknown situation.

          But it is their choice, not yours. You all act like people are attacking you personally because they get the vaccine.

          • JohnAZ May 7, 2021 at 4:16 pm #

            BTW

            The latest statistics are

            108 million fully vaccinated

            3550 death, not all of which are attributed to the vaccine.

            Mortality rate of these two number, max possible rate

            .0033%, much less than if the equivalent number of folks get the crud (.1%). That is almost two magnitudes of order less risk.

            Vaccinated folks that get the crud in an escape have much milder symptoms.

            It is up to each individual, but it has to be weighed against the risk of getting the crud in the first place eg, should kids get the shots now? No!

          • O.G. Hawkins May 7, 2021 at 5:00 pm #

            should kids get the shots now? No!

            But get it they will.

            Makes ya think …

            —–

            JAZ, keep in mind that your statistics are apples and oranges.

            0.1% of COVID patients die while 99.9% recover.

            0.0033% have died of the jab so far while 0% will ever recover. That kool-aid in you is permanent, Dude.

    I was at a community event the other evening and they commenced with the star-spangled banner.

    I could not be bothered to stand, to turn and face, to remove my hat.
    Mouth the words.

    Of course we still have the people confusing the anthem with the pledge. They have their hands over their hearts.

    That is how confused we have become, or how far down basic civics have eroded.

    Swearing fealty to this charade. It is undignified.
    It is purely robotic.
    It is nothing now but nostalgia.

    As they rose and turned, I watched.
    They all looked defeated.
    Unsure.
    Barely moving their mouths.

        I can easily foresee a Larry David moment, where I am heading down the steps as the master of ceremonies addresses the gathering… people stopping in their tracks, blocking my egress… someone, probably a soldier in dress, or a maimed vet with one of those trucker caps, confronting me, “Sir, it’s time for the anthem”

        “Uh, I’m sorry… but my colostomy bag…”

        Months later, that same vet or soldier is working in my urologist’s office.

          Soviet Russia made Czechoslovakia from the ashes of The Great Holocaust* (aka World War II).

          The Czechs and the Slovaks get along Better as friendly neighbours that they did living in a forced marriage.

          And Justice for All

          Apathy their stepping stone, so unfeeling
          Hidden deep animosity, so deceiving
          Through your eyes their light burns, hoping to find
          Inquisition sinking you with prying minds
          The ultimate in vanity
          Exploiting their supremacy
          I can’t believe the things you say
          I can’t believe, I can’t believe the price
          You pay

          Justice is lost, justice is raped, justice is gone
          Pulling your strings, justice is done

    There is an excellent article in National Review this week by Andy McCarthy. Contrary to popular myth alive on the Right, Poroshenko didn’t fire his AG Shokin because Joe threaten to pull 1 bln dollars. The firing didn’t happen while Joe was in Kiev, as he bragged but three weeks later after Christine Lagarde, then the IMF chief, threatened to pull a $40bln package ticketed to Ukraine. Protecting Burisma and Hunter sitting on its board had nothing to do with Shokin’s firing. The investigation had been put on ice by then because Shokin and Zlochevsky (Burisma’s owner) were political allies. Andy says – and I believe him – that it is unlikely that Giuliani believed Biden’s story. Andy also says that Giuliani was “fed” fake info by two Russian operatives in Ukraine who saw an opportunity to exploit Trump’s preoccupation with Ukraine and Bidens’ corruption as an election issue (and Rudy’s eagerness to please his client). But the FARA file on Giuliani (and Toensing & diGenova) is knowingly fake since he (they) never had any client relationship with the shady characters, something that is as clear as day.

    Interesting. Sweden won’t allow you to talk about Muslim or Black crime. They don’t even keep statistics. If you do, you’ll be arrested. But they have been far more open about Covid than just about anyone else.
    The people in the letter openly say they do not trust some of the experts, and that all of them are on the take to some degree or another.

    In contrast, Norway admits the immigrants have brought massive criminality with them, but insists that mass immigration must go on. Why? They never explain. This incredible type of compulsion rules the modern world, be it about mass 3rd World immigration or how everyone must take the covid vaccine. No questions are allowed. That itself should tell you that great evil is in play.

      I have heard someone describe it as their “progressive self righteousness”. Maybe it was someone here.

      In any case, I believe it has something to do with Europeans’ (and others) love/hate relationship with the United States.

      Many of them are in awe of us and feel inferior, so they in turn believe we feel superior to them.

      They assuage their feelings by believing, as they’ve been told, that there is an indelible stain on the American story, the stain of slavery/racism.

      They are going to import tons of the Other, to show how they would’ve handled things much better than our ancestors did, that they courageously stand against prejudice and hate and xenophobia.

      They don’t do this consciously, of course.

      I have a friend living over there. He says the immigrants hate the Norwegians and the Norwegians hate them right back.

      So why do they keep this up?

    Allow me to tweak:

    “What you’re seeing now with the DC establishment are desperate moves to keep the suspicious and yet more pissed-off public from understanding the government”…’s end-game

    “Careful to point out that her existence was not “a box-checking exercise,” the officer in the (CIA) recruitment ad nevertheless went to extreme lengths to emphasize, once again, that she is a female, minority, cisgender, millennial, intersectional, who has been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and impostor syndrome, while resistant to patriarchal ideas. So what’s going on here? Is this an example of yet another organization bowing to the social justice warriors, infinitely empowered now that bumbling Biden is in charge? Personally, I think it goes deeper than that. Call me paranoid, but it’s difficult to understand why the CIA would ‘go woke’ unless there was some sort of ulterior motive behind it.

    First, not once during this entire woke sermon was the term ‘American’ uttered. That may or may not be significant, but it does seem telling. Amid persistent rumors that the Western elite are hell-bent on laying the groundwork for their ‘New World Order,’ the first step to fulfilling that deranged dream – mentioned in a State of the Union Address by former CIA chief turned U.S. President, George W. Bush on Sept. 11, 1991 – would be to obliterate any notion of nationhood once and for all. And as so eloquently articulated by the woman in the recruitment ad, personal issues pertaining to sex, race and gender, currently all the rage in academia and critical [fill in the blank] theory, now take precedence over any discussions pertaining to patriotism. In fact, in these post-Trump days, ‘love of country’ has practically become synonymous with white supremacist ideology. Displays of patriotism that were once visible on every bumper sticker across the country have been replaced with the tearing down of historic monuments to the nation’s founders, and ‘taking a knee’ while the national anthem is being played.

    Today, the geopolitical playing field is no longer limited to various pivotal landmasses described by the political scientist Zbigniew Brzezinski in his seminal work, The Grand Chessboard. The new geopolitical battleground is that space between the ears known as the human mind, which the powers-that-be, armed with all of the subtle technologies at their disposal, are currently manipulating with tremendous effect.”

    “The colorful parade of endless ‘identities,’ promoted non-stop by academia, legacy media and social media, poses a direct threat to the safety and sanctity of the nation state. And with military arsenals having evolved to the point where war has become largely impossible, lest we desire the extinction of the planet, the second most effective way to defeat an enemy, aside from economic sanctions, is through psychological warfare. The weaponization of divisive woke ideology against the people of the planet seems to be a foregone conclusion, and sovereign states had better wake to its reality.”

I wonder if maybe too things can be true at the same time, as the insider in the story pointed out the out-of-touchness of the CIA with regards to what’s really going on on the ground. Perhaps the woke BS worked too well and you’re left with true devotees and disciples mixed with those who know it’s all a means to an end.

            And History does repeat. You might recall that in the mid ’60’s, during the Vietnam War protests, that the Hell’s Angels performed yeoman service beating protestors?

            I was once at a rally (defending an administration building from the protestors…(still a student and a civilian) when there was heard a roar of motorcycles. Four or five members of the Angels dispersed into the crowd of protestors, and then began randomly beating those around them with chains…no further than 20 feet away from me.

            @Elysianfield

            Yes, history does repeat, Antifa/BLM has picked up right where the Hell’s Angels left off, violently crushing dissent and violating people’s First Amendment rights of free speech and the right to peaceably assemble. That’s the valid comparison.

            The Proud Boys do nothing of the sort – they are actually bouncers for protecting free speech. At the “Stop the Steal” rally at the State of Florida Capitol, I saw them, one on each side, walk an 80-some-odd-year-old couple through a crowd of Antifa/BLM “protesters” who were trying to intimidate, threaten & spit on them.

            It was similar to a father walking his daughter down the aisle – same tenderness actually. Next was escorting what I surmised was a single mother with three small children, holding “Latino’s for Trump” signs, as they were similarly threatened.

            The Tallahassee Police were there, but in the employ of Hiz Honor Mayor Andrew Gillum, were stood down and only responsible for making sure no one was killed. Anything shy of that, they just observed.

            Point being, if not for the Proud Boys, the truly peaceful protesters would have been assaulted a la the Hell’s Angels, and had their rights violated.

            I repeat, I’ve seen them on the ground, protecting the elderly, the young & the weak – all three of which these cowards prey upon.

            With all due respect, I believe your understanding of the Proud Boys is mistaken.

          • Yohannon May 8, 2021 at 12:58 pm #

            Yes, hopefully they are doing a lot of soul searching right now since their leader is Fed asset. He was pulled before Capital Storm (arrested on something or other). In other words, they want to keep using him in the future.

            Their hearts are in the right place, but not their minds so much. They believe in civic nationalism. Ok. But they seem to have a compulsion to prove it by having non-White leaders even though overwhelmingly White. A strange sort of equality, that.

      100th A – Borders and boundaries… Borders are a definition of a nation. Boundaries are what we humans are properly supposed to cultivate to keep our own personal sovereignty, and to keep bullies from abusing us. It seems to me that modern people have not been taught to establish boundaries properly, and are highly susceptible to propaganda, and brainwashing. Is there anything a person can do to help others to see the light, awaken, get red pilled, develop some critical thinking ability? Borders and boundaries is sort of synonymous, and the globalists don’t want us having either.

      Under the Biden-Harris administration, the normalizing of homosexuality and transgenderism within the ranks of the U.S. military is accelerating.

      “History was made on Friday with the first ever all gay U.S. Navy helicopter crew,” tweeted veteran Navy Intelligence Officer and left-wing activist Travis Akers, along with pictures of the homosexual flyers.

      During the previous week, the U.S. Air Force (USAF) announced that a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer/Questioning Initiative Team (LIT) had been formally established under the umbrella of its Barrier Analysis Working Group (BAWG).

      “The LGBTQ Initiative Team focuses on the LGBTQ community and identifies and works to resolve the issues that disproportionately impede the success of LGBTQ Airmen and Guardians,” explained a USAF press release. “The creation of this team comes 10 years after the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, the legislation that prohibited LGB service members from serving openly. For many of the senior-ranking military members, some of whom served under DADT for nearly two decades, the creation of LIT is a watershed event.”

      Maj. Gen. Leah Lauderback, a lesbian and one of the group’s founders, said of the USAF LGBT inclusion endeavor, “I expect our group will grow–our community and allies want to help!”

      Yoho: BAWG (Barrier Analysis Working Group) can and will solve all problems. The DALEK race will spread throughout all planets and all times. LIT are the crack troops. Let the Chinese and Russians come. They will be eviscerated!

            I remember a few years go, going down that rabbit hole. And I first thought they were guilty. A friend of mine and I would discuss it every time we got together. Then a documentary came out that made it look like they weren’t guilty, right? It’s been awhile. All I know is at the time I switched from thinking they were guilty to not guilty then back to guilty.

        “Vlad, did you hear about those crazy Americans? They have this new secret weapon called BAWG?”

        “What is this BAWG you speak of, Xi Jingping?” A new ICBM? A secret nuclear device?”

            LBGTQ folks seem to congregate in certain areas. San Francisco and Hollywood come to mind.

            Could it be that the military is going to be a congregating point for the boys and girls to populate?

            If so, would a good war be a way of decreasing their population? I wonder how many of them have thought of this?

          BRH – There could be one good thing that comes out of this: The destruction of the U.S. military as an effective fighting force.

          Why is that a good thing?

          Well, if the U.S. military is to be converted into a Wokester tool of domestic tyranny then it would be best for all of us in “flyover country” if it becomes a completely incompetent, impotent, pussyfied force that cannot fight its way out of a wet paper bag.

          In the meantime, the States need to be re-establishing State organized and equipped militias for their domestic self-defense against a federal government that has completely gone off the rails. Those state militias will be the beneficiaries as young men who are NOT confused about their “gender identity” flock to these new state-run militaries in droves.

          If this happens, the next “civil war” will be a walkover for the seceding states. The federals will be routed in the first battle, as they were at Manassas, only this time the federals will not recover.

          Wearing “pussy hats” instead of Kevlar helmets is not a pathway to victory against a sane opponent.

        Boy there is one chopper never to step into.

        Things … “happen” … to aircraft, and more often than not there isn’t enough left to tell where the sabotage (or more likely sloppy, careless, resentful maintenance) was done.

    Great post, JHK.

    I am impressed by the many signs of pushback and remain optimistic about our future. The Arizona effort continues steadily to move forward, despite initial opposing odds. The Obama alumni went way too far against Giuliani, which will attract further support for the opposition. The corruption of BLM and the critical race theory propaganda are increasingly being exposed, as are the related dishonesty and corruption of the teachers’ unions. The covid-19 terror is running out of gas as more realize the vaccines and masks were and are unnecessary and can be deadly. Out of control urban crime and lack of support for police is exhausting even the left’s strongest apologists. Soros-purchased state prosecutors are under serious attack. Lawsuits by Texas and other states against the open borders policies should soon have impacts. So-called Big Tech, the assumed emperor of everything, is increasingly traveling without any clothes. Perhaps as soon as when Biden’s failing batteries can be overcharged no more, along with those of others such as Soros, will the madness abate and steps be adopted to prevent recurrence.

      It does appear that the exceptional patience of normal society and even some old school Liberals is swiftly reaching a point of utter exhaustion with the never ending excesses of the Woke Warriors.

      When all patience is finally exhausted with about 65% of the general population, this brief period of cultural madness will be rolled back and many of these Woke government edicts will go the way of the Dodo bird.

      But the damage has been done. America may never fully recover from the Wokester insanity, just as we never recovered from the cultural excesses and revolutionary changes that were shoved down our throats in the 1960’s.

      The country that peaked in the mid 1950’s will never be fully restored to its former glory. The DNA has changed too greatly.

    “It will be interesting to see if cable TV news can keep painting the truth as something against the public interest.”—– Are you kidding?! Of course they can! They’ve had years of practice and now neither know or care to know the difference between rumor, innuendo or outright lies.

  27. SoftStarLight May 7, 2021 at 4:21 pm #

    For good or bad it is a day in which everyone can or does have their own personalized and customized truth, or at least are convinced they do. Perhaps it would have been good to incorporate truth assimilation into the socialization process, if indeed the truth was so sparkly. But it appears as maybe though something as simple as a lack of confidence or child-like faith in the “inherent goodness of others” informed the process. Which led to that dot on the map “you are here”. The dissolving process eventually reaches some sort of baseline doesn’t it? What pathetic displays of power btw. And so the hammer that crushes the most bugs will become shiny and larger than life. If anything just because it gets noticed. If it was supposed to be a war of all against all then having armed to the teeth paramilitary at every corner would be a practical and socially conscious perspective. As soon as colonizers confess that they are indeed colonizers then they will be colonized. They say that the Republic was made for a moral and virtuous people. So then if there is no morality or virtues, or alternatively, trillions of different moralities and virtues with no mass consensus. Then it seems to follow that there simply is no common decency of the Republic. And if not, then all of these processes are just candy dispensers and matinees.

    GA

    But you definitely said that Vlad was smirking while watching everyone else implement their vaccine programmes while he was just pretending to do the same.

    “Sputnik is water” was obviously pure speculation running wild and even jokingly ridiculous with an ongoing CFN discussion. You knew that.
    ?“I defer to the video of Dr. T & Dr P that Mary recently shared.”?You defer? Right, without asking how it works? Well, I’m sure if you watch it a second time you’ll be able to tell me how it works? Or look it up, or something?

    Maybe. But I’m not gonna. Dr. T & Dr. P and the other 3 Drs. on that 90-minute video do a way Better job explaining how transmission works. You can also check out Pfizer’s documentation, they explain transmission of vax to nonvaxxed. “It’s not a bug. It’s a feature.”

    Plus, it is my understanding that vax transmission is not Just theoretical, they have used it by jabbing a few animals in the herd in the wild and then having the vax spread via transmission to the non-jabbed. Once I know all of that, I needn’t spend my rime bogged down doing scientist work as we pay scientists for that.

    Bottom line: Do your own Research.
    ?“I asked you to speculate why Putin was sabre-rattling NATO in Ukraine while also making Russian jab-purification technology available to the dumb-asses at J&J and AZ.”?And I speculated to order. In some detail.

    I missed that part. I do say that some threads get so far upstream that I stop scrolling that far up on Sundays and Wednesdays and Thursdays.

    Why, do you speculate, did Putin [MSM’s incarnate of all evil and even called “a killer” on national TV and agreed to by POTUS!] sabre-rattle NATO in the Ukraine while he was also sharing Russian vax-purification technology with the dumb-ass blood-clotters at J&J and AZ?

    “[…] and continues advising science to the unjabbed like that’s a thing.”?Er, no. I think you’ll find I’m asking you to clarify the science of which you are trying to convince me.?In your own time…

    In the 160 years of steel-structured buildings, none have never collapsed due to fire except for 3 and they were all on 1 day on 1 city block. Only 2 of the 3 were hit by an airplane.

    The BBC reported the first-ever steel-structure-not-hit-by-an-airplane building collapse 20 minutes before it collapsed!

    Mayor Guilliani told us that he did not go to NYC’s newly constructed Emergency Response Headquarters in WTC7 that day on account of he was somehow accurately told that this 47-story steel-structured building, not hit by an airplane, would soon collapse from fire even though no such building had ever collapsed from fire before or, of course, since.

    The owner of WTC7, Larry Silverstein, is on video tape saying that he decided to “pull it.” Note: That is standard terminology for controlled demolition in the Buildings Trades.

    Thousands of Architects & Engineers have signed their name to their belief that WTC7’s near free-fall collapse was a controlled demolition.

    You don’t have to be an expert to rely on experts, GA.

    I mean, think about it, OG. You know how the towers fell.?That means you know all there is to know about science. Not just mechanics, but immunology, virology, astrophysics, geology, biochemistry…

    What? That not logical, GA. I know how to catch a football but don’t know how to play in the NFL. I know how to fry eggs but not be a internationally-renowned chef.

    Clearly doing extensive Research on the blatantly obvious bull shit that a Saudi elite boy, ex-CIA, had the US Air Defence stand-down all over the US Eastern Seaboard while he pulverized 3 Manhattan skyscrapers with 2 commercial airliners hi-jacked by strip club-frequenting Saudi Jihadis who, notwithstanding being unable to land a simulated Cessna en route to dropping out of Flight School, went 2-for-2 on aeronautical feats that commercial pilots doubt that they could replicate from a cave in Afghanistan does not make one an expert on all things Science.

    [Note: I do have my University of Regina Astronomy 100 credit as I was required to gain a 100-Level Natural Science credit in order to attain my Econ degree. You haven’t lived until you have stood there waiting your turn to look at the moon through a powerful telescope on top of a 5-storey building in January in Saskatchewan. It gives Economics a whole fresh look.]

    Otherwise your insistence that people agree on your version of the towers narrative before spouting about any other kind of?science wouldn’t make any sense, right?

    Wrong. That Tuesday was the biggest event of our lifetimes, GA. Everyone on Earth must face what they did to us that day. Everyone. You can’t completely ignore science for that one day and then credibly apply science elsewhere because the ramifications are too Great. If you cannot face The Truth of that day and you must ignore that this planet is ran by evil people who mean us harm, then you are a mental child that needs looking after not an audience of intelligentsia.

    People don’t have to agree with me and thousands of Architects & Engineers but, if they do not, then they got an insurmountable amount of explaining to do.

    There is no doubt that it was an inside job. The evidence os overwhelming to the point of:

    We know who did it! We got their passports Right here!

    Yes, to the point that they are goofing on us.
    ?You’ve set a high bar for yourself there, mate. Don’t disappoint us.

    [Michael] Moore wrote [on Facebook] “It took practically no time for a jury to find murderer and officer Derek Chauvin guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter of George Floyd. The decision was swift, overwhelming, obvious, and yet, somehow, shocking. Maybe it should not have been such a shock that jurors in the congressional district that elected Rep. Ilhan Omar to Congress ended up making the right decision.

    “However, …it is not the norm for these cases against killer cops to go this way. A victory for once! On this episode I issue a blanket warning to all racist and abusive cops that we are coming for them. Thousands of citizen activists across America are going to fight to abolish a sick and cruel system of policing and replace it with a humane and accountable system of Public Safety and Compassion. A professional, college-educated and literate group of public servants who seek to PREVENT crime and help citizens live safely. Public Safety is making sure everyone has food to eat, a roof over their head, great neighborhood public schools, a good paying job for all (and a safety net for those who can’t) and free health care (including mental health) for every human being.

    “But this one act of accountability in Minnesota is not the massive, revolutionary change we need to address white supremacy, criminal justice reform, and anti-Black racism. How many Black and Brown people are sitting in prison tonight because they were put there by the thousands of Derek Chauvins on our police forces? We must set them all free. This verdict must be a new beginning. This is our moment. We must all be involved and make our voices heard… Now it is up to the rest of us to do our job as citizens of this democracy.

    “Please listen to my podcast today as I say the things that need to be said to the other Derek Chauvins: Quit now, or start running. You are going to pay for your crimes. But no one will put their knee to your neck or harm you physically in any way. No. No. Because that would make us like you.”

      Actually equating Ilhan Omar with credibility and quality of public service (she’s done nothing for her district, only her bank account, her “husband’s” bank account, and her social media following). And then he praises her voters for voting “woke” instead of voting with their brains, as well as convicting Chauvin using the same criteria.

    Mr Kunstler is an optimist. Don’t laugh. The superficial reader will say, “gloom and doom! We are running out of oil, the riches have been wasted, suburbia and a First World standard of living are the biggest misallocation of resources in history, oy vey”. This is true, but think for a minute. In all his books, he presents the situation but offers solutions, too: new urbanism; a return to trains and local agriculture; a common culture based on traditional values and less consumption. The WMBH novels presents a vision of a life that, while much harsher in terms of toil required, conveniences and luxuries afforded, is however more meaningful than what we have now: masses of office drones commuting home along roads lined with fry franchises and Targets, burning the last of the easy energy feeding the Explorer after manipulating abstractions on screens all day.

    So, he’s an optimist. You see it in his current writings, too. “This Republic will not fall so easily. The fraud will not stand. A judge will do this, a politician will do that. It’s not too late, dammit!” My question: are there grounds for Mr K’s optimism?

    Let’s talk about fish. Be patient, it has everything to do with what we’re discussing here (will this Republic fall?).

    A recent exposé: most of the “sustainably harvested wild fish” certification in the whiting fillets you buy at the local supermarket are bogus. Bullshit. A subcontractor subcontracts another subcontractor who wipes out the last whiting stocks (squid, cod, tuna), the seed corn so to speak of future fisheries that will now never exist. The thing comes out, crickets. If anything, the “right thinking” environmentalists scream louder: “No, that’s not the issue, it’s global warming! Let’s subsidize Tesla some more and get solar panels from China”. I mentioned here the depredations of the Chinese fishing fleets in the South Atlantic, around the Patagonian coast & Falkland Islands, but it goes on everywhere, and everybody is doing it: the Canadians, the Spaniards, the Japanese. Even those best of friends, the British and the French, are coming to blows over fishing rights right now.

    Fisheries equals timber equals topsoil equals rare minerals equals water. A multinational corp, Nestlé, has gotten the OK to bottle up most of North FL springwaters, depleting the acquifier dramatically. Again, crickets. “But global warming! And look here, a white supremacist!”

    We are an experiment gone awry, a dominant species with a fetish and fixation on profit, greed, power. We are the lab rats, or rhesus monkeys, granted so much food and lebensraum but no more, to see what we would do. Manage it wisely, or pig out, fuck our brains out to make ever more monkeys, feast with abandon and then face the inevitable?

    Awful panoramas open up. Moral questions unthinkable a few years ago are now of the utmost relevance. Humor me for a moment. Let’s say there’s a plan. A plandemic. Let’s assume that the bigshots at the WEF, the Davos crowd of Rulers, were serious with what they were saying about depopulation and a tight rein on whoever remains alive. Let’s say a few DNA mutations ahead from the vax, or a few “improved” versions of the virus ahead, mass mortality awaits. Let’s even admit (I know, some posters here will have a hard time with this, as they KNOW everything) that WE DON’T KNOW and it could be something else that it’s not on our radar right now.

    Good thing or bad thing? The mass mortality? Quick, good or bad? I’m sad to say, I don’t know. We couldn’t manage ourselves. We ate too much. We drove too much, bought too much shit not caring about their true cost, slave labor and pollution in Asia, fisheries depletion in our fish’n’chips. So is it wrong for our “betters” to make the decision for us? I dunno, and I wish I did, but I don’t anymore. I hasten to add, if I’m one of the crowd that must go, so be it, but I won’t go meekly like a lamb.

    I see two fat fellows getting out of their vehicles, ambling slowly, the way the obese move, towards tonight’s feast at Olive Garden. They both have a garage full of Chinese power tools they don’t know how to use. They both spend a third of their day in front of screens, at the minimum. Their hands are not tough, as they’ve never hoed a row of potatoes or dug up a stump. They dabble in bitcoin and the stock market. Or have a marketing agency. They are both on 5 different medications, and that’s not counting their painkillers, uppers, legal cannabis, booze. They are both ready to fill up on fettucini & chicken cacciatore after an exhausting shopping spree. They buy single use plastic bottles of water by the case, rolls of toilet paper by the ton. One is a Bidenista, the other a Trumpista. Which one is excess weight? Which one should go? I dunno. Both?

    That’s our Republic, those guys. Maybe it doesn’t deserve to survive. Western Civ has a death wish, and what we see, most of it, can be explained by that. Tanathos rules. The Roman Empire, the British Empire, they had a will to live. To prevail and to bring something to the world. Until they didn’t. We’re no different. JHK’s optimism is misplaced, wrong. This Republic will pass. The Chinese, the Arabs, have a stronger will to live now. We will be their amusement park, like Europe now. Houellebecq, that visionary, had it right, the sheiks buying the Louvre and the Sorbonne, the chinks perfecting a surveillance totalitariansm to rule the world.

    New republics, maybe, smaller, more cohesive, will exist: the republic of Alabama, the republic of the Loire, and of Castilla, of Patagonia, the republic of Cape Town and the free state of Queensland. If enough hard men with calloused hands and no fear to die can be found. Doubtful.

      Very many things found in the sea or anywhere else on land that are reduced precipitiously have a capacity and good chance to bounce back. Not least due to the cost-benefit equation that removes the predation. For example, one surviviing fish lays what? A 100, 1000, eggs? Anor, as another example, any nation can plant a milllion trees a year on a weekend, yes? Finally, it may be you need to see optimism in a different light. An optimist is basically just a creative problem solver and a pessimist is one who does nothing, or, if you prefer, is nothing. i grant you there is a plandemic and a deranged political program.

        If you have a way to prove “creative problem solvers” can provide an answer, I’m all for it. Why haven’t they, so far? We’re running out. Of everything. JHK was always about oil, easy energy. But everything else is “peak”, too.

            It’s probably been dumping into the Pacific since the earthquake. Our waters are already polluted, we just don’t know with what exactly.

            All those pills we take? Into the pee, into the water supply. All the fracking solution? Into “waste pits” that leak into the ground water–millions of gallons of fresh water that are unusable. All that nitrogen fertilizer? Into the rivers and lakes causing overgrowth of noxious blooms. There’s a big dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico from runoff.

            We are running out of everything and I don’t pretend to have a solution — the scope is vast and touches every system on earth.

            Regarding Fuku (“Happy”) Shima (“Island”) and its spreading poisons:

            A couple of guys went out and bought expensive take-out sushi from some of the ritziest Japanese joints in ‘Frisco. They then measured the radiation levels of the tasty-looking fish-on-rice.

            As I recall (I’ve hunted for the article on the web but alas cannot locate it, and did not bookmark it at the time) around half of the fish was pegging the meters. Definitely not what you would want slithering through your innards. Likely has to do with the food chain, but in any case the conclusion was that it was best to avoid fish from the Pacific.

            This was about 18 months ago. Situation’s likely deteriorated since then.

            I used to love sushi but as a child of the 1950s I think I’m already carrying around sufficient Strontium 90, Cesium 137 and other traces of atmospheric testing.

          Peak population.

          The Earth is starting to run out of resources to supply Man.

          Is there any options. Are developed countries willing to support undeveloped countries? Are poorer areas going to starve?

          No, no and yes.

          Is the US going to go into poorer conditions? Why?

          We are the battleground between the rich and the poor, between the Whites and the Browns. What is going on in the US is acknowledgement of the Browns that they better get what the Whites have gotten by hard work while the getting good.

          This is the ultimate global strategy, for the poor areas of the world to steal sustenance from the developed. Ironically, China is not involved as it is fighting the same battle internally.

          So the ultimate question may be, are the Whites of the world willing to fight the Browns for their wealth, to stop the take over that has started already.

          The real idiots are the Whites that are just giving away their heritage. If the Whites vote to protect their wealth, the Democratic Party is finished. The Whites of the Left, (WOTL) will give away our futures to the oncoming Browns for the promise of short term returns, votes.

          Contrary to the WOTL credo, the USA is not a Brown country. It is a White country along with Europe and Russia. The WOTL crowd has given much of the heritage of the group with one exception.

          Putin knows exactly what is happening. Trump knows what is coming. Russia has fought back against the Brown hordes trying to invade them, so far successfully. The USSR Balkanized, maybe to concentrate the resistance to the Browning of Russia. The Browning of Europe and the US is well under way.

          If the Caucasian west does not fight back, the Browns are going to overwhelm it. As I have said before, the irony of ironies may be that White Americans may have to emigrate to Russia to preserve themselves as a “race”.

          Having the Democratic Party in charge of the US is like playing Russian Roulette with a fully loaded pistol.

          Is the final battle between the Whites and the Browns Armageddon?

        • Blackbird May 7, 2021 at 9:52 pm #

          Gotta agree with Rulo. Stress a system far enough and it will “pop-back” into something different. Reefs dominated by large branching corals knocked back by heat stress (acute, not chronic) now have small mounding corals colonizing the shattered skeletons of the old reef. Stress any element (e.g., a species) and that impact reverberates through the system. Take out sharks and eventually the entire population of a reef can crash, sometimes even resulting in physical destruction of the reef due to coral death caused by algal overgrowth.

          Fish and eggs. A fish may spawn thousands of eggs in its life yet on average less than 2 survive (to replace mom and gigolo dad). Just a small decrease in survival will send that population down, another species will move in to exploit the niche, and then, “there goes the neighborhood”.

        • Amman May 8, 2021 at 8:38 pm #

          There are 7.5 trillion fish, more or less, in the oceans. Let’s assume 7B billion people eat a fish say once a month which means about 70 billion fish catch per year so that is almost 1% percent of the worlds fish population is fished every year. Or lets say it’s 10 times that, that’s makes it no more than 10 percent are fished every year. If you think these numbers are very fishy, you should still get the gist of the argument. Also, oil is chemically produced in the earths tectonic crusts according to modern oil science so its not running out anytime soon. The ever-constricting structure of debt based production in a highly indebted society has choked oil and gas into a narrow range of viability as a profit-making business is my understanding on that – even at zero percent! As in, if Prices go too high – economy tanks and if prices go too low, oil companies go bust. This narrow band or range, for oil production, is impossible to manage or plan for.

        There is another dimension beyond optimism and pessimism.

            An optimist hopes something good happens.

            The operative word being “hope”.

            Hope is the last vestige of denial.

        Amman – “An optimist is basically just a creative problem solver and a pessimist is one who does nothing, or, if you prefer, is nothing.”

        Must disagree.

        Optimists aren’t necessarily problem solvers, they just see the world’s problems as likely fixable.

        Pessimists don’t necessarily do “nothing”…they aren’t nihilists…they also see reality for what it is, and are therefore also capable of fixing things based on the limitations they know are there.

        Both are important. Neither better than the other in a fucked up world.

        • Amman May 8, 2021 at 8:54 pm #

          When a passimist solves a problem , he says “I was lucky.” When an optimist solves a problem, he says “I knew I could fix it all along.” The unfixable cluster is best left alone, yes.

      I remember something Amilcar said to me that night as we talked. I asked him what would happen if UNAMO (one of the African guerrilla groups in the civil war described in the book) were defeated. He refused to admit it was possible
      – But what if? Hypothetically?
      – Well… I would be dead, for one thing.
      – Are you frightened?
      He pushed out his bottom lip as he thought about it. No, he said.
      – Why not?
      – Because what cannot be avoided must be welcomed.
      (Brazzaville Beach, W. Boyd)
      Not sure how this relates to what I wrote about. Maybe your Boer reference brought it up. But what cannot be avoided must be welcomed. Disintegration, decline, erasure from history come to mind.

      I’m not sure how anthropologists, archeologists or some other kind of scientist figured this out (or if in fact, it’s correct since I have no way of checking their work) but the breeding population on earth at one time was down to 5,000 couples. Looks like we bounced back at 7+ billion so, even though we came close to extinction, humans appear to be difficult to entirely kill off, even though Chick-fil-A and MacDonalds are doing their best.

      You are right that JHK is an optimist as he believes (if I have correctly read him) that people can endure if they face depravation with creativity and reestablishing a community. Clinging to a sense of humor helps and avoiding at all costs, magical thinking — “solutions will appear if I believe and visualize them.”

      The zeitgeist will pass to China and they’ll face irrelevance in their turn. Who knows how long that will take and what it will look like? I seems we all agree that the world is choking on its own technology and trash.

      I think it’s unfortunate that anyone would consider Mr. K. anything but an optimist. Shows a lack of reading comprehension. He points out where things are going wrong, then discusses how that can be remedied, often trusting the system in place to work as it was designed to. Seems obvious that he loves his country, is disappointed at its current state of disrepair, but hasn’t given up hope. I don’t share his optimism, but I sure do like it.

      Thank you Rulo for the unique perspective that you bring to this blog. One of the things I find so disheartening in people is their inability to connect the dots from shoveling that fettucine into their mouth to the origin of the wheat, butter and cream that it contains. And I don’t mean just the millennial crowd – many of my crowd (boomers) have no idea what physical labor is involved in the production of food. It’s like magic when the shelves are automatically re-stocked; don’t worry it will always be so – the government assures us of this.

      As to depopulation who can know, but I will go down fighting with my shovel and hoe if necessary. The calluses I build up today will serve me well in that uncertain future. We’re all going to die; the choice of how we live remains ours for the moment.

            Hell Yoho, I realized that at the age of six when somebody moved in across the road and cut the big oak tree down. An alien race, one without a soul, had entered the land.

            Yes, I’m a Druid too. The Germans were also “into it”.

            Wiki

            Donar’s Oak (also Thor’s Oak or, via interpretatio romana, Jove’s Oak) was a sacred tree of the Germanic pagans located in an unclear location around what is now the region of Hesse, Germany. According to the 8th century Vita Bonifatii auctore Willibaldi, the Anglo-Saxon missionary Saint Boniface and his retinue cut down the tree earlier the same century. Wood from the oak was then reportedly used to build a church at the site dedicated to Saint Peter. Sacred trees and sacred groves were widely venerated by the Germanic peoples.

            There was once a blind White Nationalist jazz musician who became very interested in Indians and Indian spirituality. He went out to the Southwest to meet some. Some Hopi children pretended to help him across a busy highway, but left him stranded on an island in the middle. They fled with gales of laughter. He reflected upon it and realized that he was seeking outwardly something that we have lost inwardly and amongst ourselves. They are not us. We are not them. Hero worship is for children. To get caught in this (as I once was) is no better than the fanboys who worship Israel instead of setting America right.

            It’s not all bad: We do have an ability beyond all other races to appreciate the Other. I wouldn’t have us lose this – just not lose ourselves in it by trying to make it existential. We have to do our own work of saving ourselves and reestablishing our own Cultures, not just ooh and ah at other peoples.

        And that was in 1976.

        But then I have never understood why you folks think Winston Churchill was anything other than a fucking psycho or simply an idiot ?

            You know how fantasists often ask the question: “If you could go back in time and kill Hitler in his crib, would you do it?” Well, some questions are too stupid to answer. However, if I find myself in the role of a time-traveling assassin, it’s Churchill that’s going down. Hopefully Cecil Rhodes will be holding the demon child in his arms…

    A test school. One of the last public ones in NYC. A Black student there mourns for her school, “The test has to go”. Got that? Not, “Black have to study harder”. Just destroy the school so Blacks can get in.

    ” Mr Kunstler is an optimist. Don’t laugh. ”

    I don’t.

    Granted , I don’t really know Mr. Kunstler.

    But I suppose I do know myself a little bit ?

    The other day I heard something in a TV show which I think sums up my world view rather well ;

    ” Pessimism seems to me only a higher plain of optimism.

    I expect very little or nothing of people.

    But that means I am rarely disappointed or disillusioned.

    And I am very often pleasantly surprised. “

      I’m not sure what the TV show was . My best guess is it was ” The Ghost Whisperer ” which is hardly hard core , high brow , content.

    I have followed JHK’s tally of official malfeasance dutifully. I cannot do anything about it. If I was inclined to revolution–where would I protest? The essential problem is the capability of a central government to produce as much money as it likes to fund whatever it thinks important. My town is literally exploding with jobs and activity from the stimulus and defense spending. Who is going to complain about good times? Certainly not the beneficiaries.
    We all know it’s not prudent to spend a truckload of money on corruption that is called “infrastructure”. I have always found it interesting that we “independent” Alabamians receive 1.6 federal dollars for every one dollar of federal tax we pay. I am grateful but receive little of the largesse directly. Those that do seem inordinately proud of their importance in returning us to Moon/Mars or “supporting the troops”. If money meant something we’d all be back in the cotton fields.
    I have no expectations of voting making any improvement. I was hopeful that Biden would cut us off for voting for Trump and slow up all the Mcmansion building and SUV buying but we are down to less than 400 homes on the market and the same crazy make a cash offer over the asking price nonsense that is infecting other locales. I hope it ends soon.
    You might say-“you can’t be serious” but the gigantic under construction Toyota-Mazda plant that is now hiring 4,000, strikes me as a factory that is set to produce a plethora of cars we don’t need.

    “white man make a big fire and stand way back

    Recruiting for the Climate Corps starts pretty soon, 1.5 million young zealots and true believers charged with the important mission of SAVING THE PLANET, a force larger than than the active duty army and Marine Corp combined.

    They’ll be showing up at your house, wearing their sharp green uniforms, checking to see if your thermostat is turned up too high, whether or not you got an EV yet, and how much beef you have in your freezer. Yes, they will have enforcement powers.

    ” Black Logic. ”

    Ugh .

    Well …..

    I reckon you are very unlikely to ever see me at a BLM rally.

    Why ?

    Sure , I do think most Whites think Blacks are inferior , and act on that view too.

    BUT —

    It sure looks to this observer like most Whites think Whites are inferior , and act on that view too.

    Most men think women are inferior , but then most men think men are inferior too.

    And most women think men are inferior , but then they don’t really think much of their own kind either , never mind the hype.

    The gun rights crowd and the gun control crowd may once have been quite seperate groups , but now the average is really to think of self defense and self sovereignty as a PRIVILEGE – kind – of thing ,

    so the difference sadly now is really no substantive difference at all.

    So it’s armed guards for Mick Jaeger ( but that was always the case anyway )

    But no guns for fruit – pickers or carpet – layers ( which is going to MEAN YOU . Dumb ass. )

    Hee Hee , now I just have to say another word about Jessica Dubroff .

    Once upon a time , granted , ” child ” ( i.e. incapable , incompetent pawn ) meant Seven years old.

    But then it meant 12 years old. ( Which would have left out Andrew Carnegie , and myself , among others. )

    And now , well , my young lawyer friend got her FIRST paying job at age 26 !

    And I very much doubt it was because she is stupid or a slacker. No , that is apparently absolutely common now.

    ( And when are these youngsters supposed to get married by the way ? At fucking 50 ?? )

    So , No , I don’t think BLM is really addressing THE question at all.

    Or even ANY question at all.

    I’ll grant you that the average American Black is pretty stupid.

    But then the schools were de – segregated 40 years ago , so after all it is THE SAME education as for ……. well, you know who.

    😛

    Speaking of Rockwell Jackson’s , ” Somebodies watching me ! ” ;

    When that song was brand new I wondered about the subject.

    You have pretty much three kinds of people when it comes to biographical ancient history :

    1 . ” But I’ll get over it. ”

    2. Folks interested in that sort of information twenty years later , like history buffs , fans , people carrying a torch for you twenty years later , stalkers , but anyway basically just interested.

    3. Folks interested in that sort of information twenty years later , except it is pretty fucking obvious that they aren’t the least bit interested in your favorite color , and it’s damned implausible that they like you , or even dislike you for that matter.
    So why the fuck would they be interested ??

    But it’s the third group that is not a concern ??!

      Naomi Wolf, who is Jewish, equates Vaccine Passports, to having to wear the Yellow Star of David in 1930’s Germany.

      Further proof – as if further proof were needed – that Naomi Wolf is a flip-head who has lost it, and lost it bad.

      Having a vaccine book or card is not an indicator of minority or persecuted status, as the Yellow Star was, it is a passport to international travel and lots of other desirable stuff. A nutter.

          • Tekapo May 9, 2021 at 12:07 am #

            It’s that her analogy is illogical – the Star of David was a discriminatory stain, whereas a vaccination card is nothing of the sort.

            If you had to wear a bright red wristband until you are fully vaccinated, then she would be getting a bit closer. But still, vaccination is voluntary, whereas being Jewish in 1930s Germany was not.

            I find the extreme anti-vax comparison she made odious and inappropriate. YMMV.

    In the movie “Rambo”, during Rambo’s big “Op” to “NAM” to be a big hero and save the American POWs being held by the “Gooks” in the prison camp, a forlorn Rambo with his shirt off and with his rippling, 6 pack chest muscles, tells the young Vietnamese girl who wants to have Rambo’s baby that he is “Expendable”.

    She asks: “What mean “Expendable”?

    Forlorn Rambo with a tear in his eye: “Expendable is like when they give you an expensive experimental vaccine that they tell you will save you, but they know that it doesn’t work and may harm you, and they just want to make a lot of money.”

    “Guess I was expecting (ok, kinda hoping for) Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS. Maybe next time…”

    Most of that sort of thing seems to be BDSM – type stuff for some reason , which never appealed to me. * Sad face *

    I got my own artistic ideas though !

    Unfortunately , I no longer trust internet image hosting sites any further than I can throw them.

    So text will have to do.

    I once did a series of travel / PR type posters , based on the theme or premise that Germany won the war.

    Nobody ever seems to note that Jews were only 2% of Europe’s population. Throw in Gypsies , militant Gays and Reds who absolutely still will not shut up , and it’s still maybe 10% .

    Never the less , if Germany wins the war , it is looking at one Hell of a demographic dichotomy.

    So , anyway my slogan was ;

    WELCOME TO THE COSMOPOLITAN REICH !

    ( The name changed a little bit later. )

    And the poster girl was Mariah Carey.

    Damn good posters if I may say so myself.

    My very favorite was a poster featuring again Mariah Carey , some Persian girl whose name I have never tracked down , and some actually Brazilian mixed Indian / Caucasian girl masquerading as Middle Eastern.

    Smiling and with arms linked and wearing the uniform of the 13th SS Handscar. http://www.ww2incolor.com/d/45548-5/dWSS_31_1

    I threw in some touches of my own though,

    like I ripped off this Egyptian decoration ,

    https://www.emedals.com/egypt-republic-an-order-of-the-sinai-star-1973

    And made it a Knight’s Cross – type decoration for Islamic volunteers.

    And gave them a sleeve band with the name Hezbollah , ripped off from Hezbollah.

    Same slogan of course ; ” Welcome to the Cosmopolitan Reich ! ”

    I would love to see that slogan in Arabic or Dari ! But that’s a bit beyond my capabilities.

    One of these days I would really like to learn how to do Youtube videos .

    One idea I have is a film footage montage of Hitler with this as the sound track ;

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NI6aOFI7hms

    Hmm , it could also serve as the sound track for a commercial celebrating 75 years of German and Japanese friendship.

    Another idea , the rawest footage I can find of German troops in Russia , maybe steal a scene or two from that Russian movie , ” Come and See ” with this as the sound track ;

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuwxZSIS__4

    ( Btw , Come And See gets my vote for greatest war movie of all time. Warning though , it is on more than one list of greatest HORROR MOVIES of all time. )

    Then there’s my magnum opus !

    About 90% of the artwork has already been done.

    The premise is that after the war Germany retained possession of the Channel Islands.

    Over the years , the Channel Islands have become a resort of choice especially for Whermact , Reichs Labor Service , and Organization Todt , among other reasons because of its very ambiguous legal / sovereignty situation.

    A bit like Havana Cuba used to be relative to the United States.

    So the purpose of the video is to commemorate the 75th anniversary of German occupation and German ~ English amity.

    You have this fresh – faced English teenage girl ( actually a Russian girl , but she certainly looks like you could imagine her sipping tea , and a Public School accent coming out of her mouth )

    in a uniform I made up myself , representing an organization I made up myself , ” The League of English Girls ” an English equivalent of the League of German girls.

    I put a Nazi Party pin on her lapel. That’s actually not kosher , but then I just made up a little story that in the Channel Islands they do things a little differently anyway. 😛

    And she takes you on a tour of the marvelous English Channel Islands under wonderful German occupation.

    The Germans and the English ; Best friends forever ! ( Except we still haven’t given the Islands back. ) 😀

    And this , and this , would be the soundtrack ;

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1UkZLT20TI

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ayyy-03ITDg

    I even made up a flag for the Reichs Protectorate Of The English Channel Islands.

    I suppose it is just as well that I can’t make Youtube videos.

    Millions would be appalled ! Lol.

    • KesaAnna May 8, 2021 at 2:18 am #

      Now that I think of it , gotta add a scene where my girl , wearing a Reichs labor service cap , dances in front of German fortifications to this song ;

      • KesaAnna May 8, 2021 at 2:55 am #

        I made up all sorts of stuff about this girl that wouldn’t make it into the video.

        Like , she was an English orphan , who was adopted by the Field Marshall they made Reichs Protector of the Channel Islands , who was Friedrich Paulus.

        She was a bit nutty . She would write love letters , and sent him her picture.

        That anecdote came from real life. I wrote a love letter to Erich Honecker once. I can imagine what my parents maybe thought of that ! I know they didn’t mail it.

        • KesaAnna May 8, 2021 at 3:01 am #

    I think Michael Moore is great – a modern American hero.

    I actually find him quite like our host JHK, but from a somewhat different perspective and political position: they are strong on detail, can argue their case really well, and identify the causes of things as they see them, and never fly off into weird conspiracy tinfoil to explain difficult stuff.

    Like ’em both. As one should 🙂

    • KesaAnna May 8, 2021 at 3:16 am #

      I dunno , JHK seems to be arguing that the election was indeed stolen.

      Or , at least , that some pretty funny shit was gong on , and that’s not necessarily overboard , come to think of it.

      My own position is that American elections have been rigged since about 1875. So it is really neither here , nor there , this past election.

      Sorry O.G. , but I don’t think 911 was an inside job.

      On the other hand , I don’t believe the Patriot Act was written in a day , or even in a week , or even in a month.

      So it might as well have been an inside job .

      JFK ? I think Oswald acted alone. But , if there was a conspiracy , the conspiracy was that they feared JFK would live to be recognized as the mediocrity he was . A martyr would be much more useful.

      * Sigh * Every time I bring up Anne Frank Yohan has to try and convince me it was a forgery.

      Editors hand – holding and / or ghost writing are hardly unusual.

      And in any case I think she did write at least part of it.

      And in any case , it seems to me that the important thing is an obviously harmless girl starved to death for basically no reason.

      So it doesn’t really matter , and she will serve just as well for a poster girl for that point.

      • KesaAnna May 8, 2021 at 3:27 am #

        A note on 911.

        I may not be a genius , but I have been a fan or groupie of the Soviet Army since I was six fucking years old.

        So my memory is plenty clear on this point ;

        I remember pulling my fucking hair out in 1985 ;

        Surely Washington is familiar with the politics of some of these folks in the Mujaheddin ??

        They are aware that these people DO NOT SEE ANY DIFFERENCE between Communist Russian atheists , and secular humanist republican Americans ??!

        RIGHT ??!

        So I’ll grant you , it sure as fuck looks pretty God damned bad.

          I’m not sure that I like your Police work, there Kesa.

          Surely you are not saying that the CIA’s mujaheddin ran by an elite Saudi (i.e. Petro-Dollar) boy having plausible motive against both USSR & USA precludes the CIA from using him as a World-changing prop a la Emmanuel Goldstein.

            Very diplomatic of you, OG, compared to your repetitive and insistent responses elsewhere.

            Predictions:

            You will not insist Kesa accept Santa Claus postnominals, despite not accepting your hypothesis.

            Big Brain will not call Kesa low-IQ for not accepting the hypothesis he insists only the low-IQ do not accept.

            The interpersonal dynamics on here are always interesting.

            Like the spat (which I had been looking forward to – and it did not disappoint) between the two posters who each insist they do more in-depth research than anyone else and know everything that other people don’t know.

          • O.G. Hawkins May 8, 2021 at 9:59 pm #

            Thank you, GA. While far from perfect, I do enjoy logical debate and prefer civility.

            Kesa isn’t assuring people of jab safety that could kill them so there’s that.

            That said, anybody who believes the official story of that Tuesday should be asterisked and ignored because they haven’t a clue what is going on with our planet. The fitst step in solving the problem is acknowledging the problem.

            I am unsure if I am Big Brain that you refer too (I have been called that before) but I have never mentioned “IQ” on CFN until this very sentence.

            Again, I assume that I am neither of these posters that you vaguely refer to as I’ve never made any such claim.

          • GreenAlba May 9, 2021 at 8:02 am #

            Clarification, OG…

            You are not Big Brain. Big Brain refers to himself as Big Brain and has been referring to other posters as ‘low-IQ’ since five minutes after he got his feet under the table here, in somewhat similar fashion to you getting your feet under the table a couple of years later and immediately proposing that everyone – with JHK’s blessing, which you requested!! – should be categorised according to your wishes. So there’s a similarity in personality, nevertheless.

            The other two posters are nothing to with you either. They will recognise themselves (or not) – no need for anyone else to recognise them.

            Their identity isn’t the point. The point is that this board contains a few complete know-it-alls, who insist everyone who doesn’t agree with them is self-evidently wrong/dumb/blind/thick [delete as appropriate]. And these people insist they’ve looked into things so much more deeply than the (implied if not designated verbatim) ‘sheeple’. And yet there are areas where their deep research has led them to polar opposite conclusions, despite their respective claims to brilliance.

            For this and other reasons, I am very wary of know-it-alls generally. And for myself, the older I get the less I know that I know. And I started off from a low baseline owing to my natural reticence in claiming to ‘know’ stuff.

            “Kesa isn’t assuring people of jab safety that could kill them so there’s that.”

            (1) Neither am I.

            (2) Thank you for neatly destroying your previous silly criterion regarding vaxxes and 9/11. My own view is that your insistence on the link is as much about self-congratulation as it is about logic.

            That said, anybody who believes the official story of that Tuesday should be asterisked and ignored because they haven’t a clue what is going on with our planet.

            I think you’ll find many people on the blog who do not think Kesa should be ‘asterisked and ignored’ for not overtly supporting your interpretation of events. Some of them might even start moving toward the view that you are quite arrogant.

            And have you noticed, OG, that I have never actually stated that I rejected your hypothesis? Probably not – too keen to stay with the self-congratulation.

            The hypothesis (which I realise isn’t yours) is persuasive. But Slugoon’s hypotheses are also persuasive, and my guess is that his qualifications include more physics than yours, although I don’t know that either. And there are others on here whose arguments are persuasive and whose views on 9/11 do not correlate as you would insist they should with their views on the vaccination programmes.

            I don’t *buy* the official story. But I don’t automatically *buy* yours either.

            So put your arrogant, self-regarding asterisks wherever you like.

          • GreenAlba May 9, 2021 at 8:17 am #

            I’m possibly old enough to be your mother, but, for some reason I can’t account for, my brain is able to just, you know, remember people’s names. So I can choose to read their posts, skim over them, or totally ignore them, without the help of Arrogant Asterisk Technology or Pissy Postnominals.

            Most of us can manage mental arithmetic. Mental asterisking isn’t any harder and it’s less arrogant.

            You are the ones concerned about vaxx passports (so am I, especially if they’re used domestically) but you want asterisk passports for people to get a chance of having their posts read.

            Sheesh.

            BTW, maybe it’s my age, but it seems to me the view that the CIA would do pretty much anything, even to its own people, has been pretty mainstream since way back when yer man made Three Days of the Condor. 🙂

          • Tekapo May 9, 2021 at 10:07 pm #

            […] it seems to me the view that the CIA would do pretty much anything, even to its own people, has been pretty mainstream since way back when yer man made Three Days of the Condor.

            Yes … the theme of 3DOTC was that the “American People” would tolerate – indeed expect – the CIA doing anything in order to protect the not-negotiable American Way of Life.

            And the real scandal of 9/11 is not that it was an inside job it wasn’t), but that American “protection” agencies failed to detect it and failed to prevent it.

            The Bush Government used the event to implement a whole lot of the neocon conservative wish-lists (wars, more defense money, huge homeland security, etc) – they didn’t do the deed, but they weren’t going to let a good crisis go to waste.

            The OGH notion that the wold divides into “9/11 truthers” and “brainwashed sheeple” is just risible.

            As I say repeatedly – once you believe one conspiracy theory you become a pod-person and will believe all conspiracy theories, no matter how far-out they are.

      • Tekapo May 8, 2021 at 4:07 am #

        I dunno, JHK seems to be arguing that the election was indeed stolen.

        I don’t think JHK has ever said outright it was stolen … he suggests – quite reasonably – there are a lot of wrinkles, a lot of accusations. and a lot of circumstantial evidence … which is quite different.

        I don’t know whether any of this stuff will EVER be resolved, because no-one can ever find an impartial umpire in any jurisdiction in any state.

        Which reminds me of an old joke … “Why wasn’t Jesus born in America? God couldn’t find Three Wise Men and a Virgin”.

          “I don’t know whether any of this stuff will EVER be resolved, because no-one can ever find an impartial umpire in any jurisdiction in any state.”

          Tekapo – you do realize you’re literally describing the reason why elections can’t be trusted anymore…right? No one trusts the umpire. You just said so yourself. (but we’re just buying into nut-fudge conspiracy trollop…right?)

          Much like the soon-to-be-implemented MLB computer ump can call a strike a ball when it’s clearly on the corner, and no one can do anything about it.

          That’s why we prefer people in those positions instead of computers programmed and controlled by (insert your best guess here). At least you can kick dirt on the person’s shoes.

            Tekapo – you do realize you’re literally describing the reason why elections can’t be trusted anymore…right? No one trusts the umpire.

            And meanwhile the Republican vote-crush continues:

            Republicans in several states have passed legislation that will fine local election officials if they make it easier to vote.

            The AP reported:

            Republicans are creating a new slate of punishments for the county officials who run elections, arguing they overstepped their authority when they expanded voter access during the coronavirus pandemic.

            The new penalties, part of a nationwide Republican campaign to roll back access to the ballot, already have become law in Iowa, Georgia, and Florida, and are making their way through statehouses in Texas and elsewhere. The GOP push comes after a presidential contest that saw record turnout and no widespread problems.

            Election officials have responded with warnings of a chilling effect on those responsible for administering the vote and counting ballots, raising fears they could be penalized for minor mistakes, get caught up in partisan fights or even leave their jobs.

            Some of these laws fine local officials tens of thousands of dollars for unintentional mistakes. Others, like in Florida, have fines as high as $25,000 for the placement of ballot drop boxes.

            These election rigging laws will hopefully be gutted by the courts, but if they aren’t the federal government needs to act both with the Department of Justice and congressional legislation.

            Republicans aren’t trying to hide what they are doing. They want to make sure that 2020 never happens again by rigging elections to make it more difficult for voters who lean Democratic to vote.

            Tekapo – no one should vote unless they are 1) a citizen and 2) give enough of a shit to take the brief amount of time it takes to register in advance. Everyone else is just being coerced/enticed to vote.

            Not a valuable contribution.

            They’re not trying to make it harder to vote. They’re trying to make people follow to the rules if they want to vote.

            Which would you prefer? Everyone votes when only 45% pay attention/care? Or that the 45% who pays attention and cares votes?

            Your logic is beyond comprehension or validity.

          • Tekapo May 8, 2021 at 10:24 pm #

            I agree of course that only bona fide citizens should have the vote – who could not?

            I also believe that same-day registration should be strictly limited to those who claim they are or were on the electoral roll as registered, but for some reason (perhaps skulduggery) there names are not on the roll when they apply for a vote or turn up on the day.

            If they still live in the county then they should be able to fix their registration and vote that day. If they live in another county, then they have a bit of a drive, maybe.

            I agree that same-day registration is not a valid process for anyone who just fronts up – they’ve had 2-4 years to go through the simple process of registering. Polling booth staff are busy enough on the day.

          Tekapo…everyone knows that “Jesus” joke is about Australia…

          As to JHK not saying it outright, it’s difficult not to infer that that IS what he’s saying, along with his shifts in questions like the Great Reset (moving from “the so-called Great Reset” only a few months ago to dropping the qualifier more recently). He seems to have found an antihistamine for his allergy.

        No need to cherry-pick. His entire oeuvre is excellent, not just the one that gets the global-warming deniers all excited.

        Having said that, I agree that trying to run the word as it is on wind turbines, solar panels, and huge batteries, is simply physically (and financially) impossible. We will need coal and gas fired power generation for a very long time.

        Anyway, I expect Peak Oil will force huge changes well before the planet burns up (notwithstanding Our Greta) – but we won’t all be driving Teslas.
