“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.”
— Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Is the USA about to be cancelled? The nation’s irresolvable affairs festered in an ominous globe of silence through the weekend as the Potemkin inauguration of Joe Biden loomed just days ahead. With actual news scant, rumor frizzled through America’s neural network like political neuralgia, prompting little gleeps of pain in both the Red and Blue camps. Were those thirty-something-thousand troops in Washington DC posted to fend off an attack of white supremacists? What was that strange military aircraft traffic from Rome, Italy, to Oklahoma City about? How come Veep Mike Pence went to Fort Drum, home of the army’s fabled 10th Mountain Division, in wintry upstate New York?

The hypothetical Biden Administration is shaping up to be something like a four-year-long séance, a conjuring of apparitions wailing out talking points in a darkened room. The actual location of the inaugural event remains a mystery, or even if it will be an event, maybe just a pre-recorded video concoction of Mr. Biden’s greatest hits of 2020. Check and see if he’s wearing the same necktie from beginning to end. If a hologram is inaugurated, does that make the land-mass between Montauk and Santa Barbara a post-structural figment?  The “president-elect,” made an ectoplasmic appearance Sunday talking up “science,” the Democrat’s mental life-preserver, and then shuffled offstage in an apparent fog of confusion as the Ritalin wore off. He’ll be great in the war room, I’m sure.

The mystery surrounding DNI John Ratcliffe’s long overdue report on foreign interference in the election cleared up only a little with the release of a letter sent January 8th to the Senate Intelligence Committee. In it, citing a side report from Intel Community Ombudsman Barry Zulauf, Mr. Ratcliffe refers to “undue pressure being brought to bear” on analysts by CIA management to craft their conclusions according to political loyalties. In other words, once again the CIA appears to be playing games with the American people and can’t be trusted. Isn’t that reassuring?

Meanwhile, The New York Times, CNN, and MSNBC have turned into a nonstop gloat-fest anticipating the punishments to be dished out by progressive Wokesterdom against anyone who ever entertained a thought about or uttered the phrase “stolen election.” They can kiss their livelihoods goodbye. Their college degrees will be revoked by such bastions of free thinking as Harvard. Their websites will be liquidated. Senators and congresspersons must be thrown out of their seats. They’ll be reduced to squatting on filthy blankets at the entrance of the Walmart begging for spare change, or hauled off to re-education camps where NPR lawyers with riding crops preside over their therapeutic struggle sessions, beating the wrongthink out of their hides. For Democrats, vengeance is a dish to be served piping hot. Would you like flies with your shit sandwich?

First up, the Dems promise, will be an executive order granting amnesty to an estimated 11-million illegal immigrants, along with Democratic Party registration cards, to buffer up the voter rolls for elections yet-to-come forever more, with a caravan of additional thousands from Honduras conveniently heading north to the US border just as the Biden “team” has announced they intend to ease the rules for claiming asylum. That will surely be welcome news to the millions of Americans whose jobs, livelihoods, and businesses have been destroyed by Covid-19 lockdowns.

And what of the fellow who remains president for hours now measured in mere double-digits? That’d be Mr. Trump. Is he simply moping around the Oval Office on a heap of My Pillows as the end nears, awaiting the punishments promised by every George Soros-backed DA in the land and their Lawfare allies inside the Beltway? That would be unlike the man. You could sure make the case that whoever is president after Wednesday noon is likely to drown under a world-beating tsunami of financial and economic woes. Why not just pass that old baton to holographic Joe? Let him flail and flounder in the foamy slop of radical discontinuity.

Well, for one reason, it would be less than patriotic to leave one’s country to a hologram, essentially leaderless, and in thrall to sinister forces with other than the national interest in mind, that is, the citizens’ interests. And yet, to do your duty while breaking the long chain of peaceable transitions from one party of good faith to another is an awesome and fateful step into the unknown. But, if the election itself was a kind of coup, if once good faith has become bad faith, well, that sort of changes everything. How this melodrama turns depends on the information at hand. Does the president have it or not? Something is going to drop in the hours ahead. Will it be consequential? Will it correct anything that’s gone wrong? Or will it just drive the country closer to civil war?

    Biden and Harris, really? Could there be two more worthless assholes to hold office? Donald has turned into a shrieking idiot. What are we to become.

    • shotho January 18, 2021 at 10:11 am #

      Biden will be president for the next four years unless his cognitive impairment becomes noticeably worse. Beyond that, who knows? The land and the people on it will continue; it’s called ‘life’. There will be continued organized government, even though it’s power structure might change. We, each, have decisions to make, as usual.

      • Jigplate January 18, 2021 at 12:26 pm #

        “Biden will be president for the next four years unless his cognitive impairment becomes noticeably worse.”

        He will not last long regardless. Lets start a CFN Biden pool. Everyone pick a date – whoever is closest without going over, wins. I pick April 29th 2022 That’s when they wheel him back into the basement for good.

        • abbybwood January 18, 2021 at 1:35 pm #

          I bet he leaves around May Day.

          He will finish his 100 days of destruction, Americans will not comply with his double mask mandate, Vicki Nuland back at The State Department, will get the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria ramped back up and The Squad will start to feel the sting of backlash against their hate-filled “cancel culture” programs.

          Yup. May Day will usher in President Harris.

          God help us.

          • MaryV January 20, 2021 at 8:06 pm #

            @benr then perhaps I should have chosen March 12. They like 12.

        • Blackbird January 18, 2021 at 4:37 pm #

          I’m going to bet on shortly before Memorial Day (May 31). Murdered by “white nationalist racists” whose Pandemic Unemployment Assistance ran out (April 10). Just in time for another Summer of Hate.

          Now, the bonus question: Who will Harris choose to be next in line?

            “Now, the bonus question: Who will Harris choose to be next in line?”

        • goat1001 January 20, 2021 at 4:14 pm #

          I pick January 19th, 2028.

        • Wizard of the Saddle January 20, 2021 at 9:40 pm #

          I say he gets the boot on April Fool’s Day 2023. The old fool will be pushed out the door using the 25th Amendment by Harris and the Cabinet. That way they can get almost 10 years of tyranny outta Kamala as Amerika descends into it’s new role as the World’s Largest Banana Republic….with Nuclear Weapons.

      What if Trump had actually insisted on prosecution of those responsible for campaign spying, RussiaGate, UkraineGate, rioting in the streets…

      Tweeting about the stock market was not a good substitute for upholding the constitution but it’s taken until now for him to understand that fact.

      Goodbye Donald, hello communism.

      • Night Owl January 18, 2021 at 11:50 am #

        Maybe. Two days to find out. We have a literal army in DC, complete with F16s and Chinooks, and I dunno why anyone thinks Pedo Joe either needs or has the authority to call in such a fighting force.

        We are either inaugurating the first dictator, or about to see the culmination of years of strategy against globalism, China, and its puppets. Given Trump’s ability to fend off the worst the Beast could dish out, I have to assume the latter.

        • C.O.Jones January 18, 2021 at 11:55 am #

          I wish I could agree but fending off the Beast would mean gaining the testicular fortitude he has lacked for 70 odd years. I just don’t think it’s going to happen.

        • MaryV January 18, 2021 at 12:02 pm #

          Here’s hoping for a last minute reprieve from a Hologram Joe and Kamala “Fweedom” Harris madministration.

        • Jigplate January 18, 2021 at 12:39 pm #

          “We have a literal army in DC, complete with F16s and Chinooks”

          I understand that National guard troops in washington, now at a level 2.5 times more than previous inaugurations, are being vetted for ties to extremist groups.

          https://apnews.com/article/biden-inauguration-joe-biden-capitol-siege-ap-top-news-857bacc273e16ff82dc9fefed1242ae8

          The article is careful to NOT point out what kind of extremists they’re looking for. I wonder if members of the NRA are on the list. If there is going to be a political litmus test to join the military, then the leftists are in trouble. The vast majority of ass kickers in the military hail from rural, conservative ‘Murica. Conversely, most of the folks they recruit from the ‘hood are in support roles, and would be sorely upset if they were handed a rifle and told go suppress the deplorables.

          • tresho January 18, 2021 at 1:01 pm #

            ” if they were handed a rifle and told go suppress the deplorables” they would probably wind up shooting each other.

          • BackRowHeckler January 18, 2021 at 1:15 pm #

            Well, Biden has vowed to get Trannies back into the armed forces “ON DAY 1”.

            I know, Putin and Xi Jingping are shaking in their boots upon hearing that news.

            Brh

          • cbeard January 18, 2021 at 1:31 pm #

            That is what I have been wondering about. Are the rank and file soldiers on board with this election scam or does anyone in the lower ranks of the military have any scruples left. The upper brass seem to be totally corrupt. The military establishment is quite good at brainwashing the recruits to follow orders without any thought to the honorable, legal, decent thing to do. Surely some in the ranks disagree with the despicable actions they are participating in. Let us hope that some of the troops and commanders have some sense of right and wrong left in themselves.

        • benr January 18, 2021 at 12:42 pm #

          I just heard the Hologram and his incoming feckless regime is terrified that the very standing army may attack him or cause issues. “Golly”,

          This is the essence of the wicked running from nothing!
          They know they cheated and they know the vast majority of honest Americans know something bad happened! “Shazam!”,

          Now this incoming regime of criminals is killing the keystone pipeline! “shame, shame, shame!”
          They just handed China the keys to the oil kingdom oh what a surprise everything ugly kid Joe does will benefit his masters in Beijing!
          I’m reminded of a show called Gomer Pyle where in Jim Nabors runs around saying “Sur-prise, sur-prise, sur-prise!”

          Where is our Sarge Carter to keep things grounded in reality as the grifter in Chief takes his purloined office or is that orifice?

          Speaking of Jimmy Peanuts Carter I would even take that old fool over the incoming fool at least Jimmy was a decent person.

          • Night Owl January 19, 2021 at 5:18 am #

            No, Benr.

            It is the COVIDs. Biden can’t have an inauguration, because of the COVIDs.

        • Yohannon January 18, 2021 at 1:01 pm #

          From what I’m hearing, people like Sydney Powell can’t even get into see the President at this point. From all appearances (add slight italics), including throwing the Capitol Stormers under the bus, he’s trying to save his own skin at this point.

          Third option via Alex Jones: It is a real military coup in the offing. But Jones isn’t reassured: Who is more “woke” than the upper brass of the military at this point?

          The Communists staged a gigantic psy-op during the Russian Revolution called “Project Trust” about how patriotic generals were about to come in with massive force to overturn the Revolution.

          There was resistance in remote areas by the so called “Whites”. Defeated, they later joined the Allies (who were allied with the Communists) and after the war were turned over to Stalin or torture and execution.

          • Uncle Bob January 18, 2021 at 4:50 pm #

            Maybe, if Powell had been able to prove her allegations, she’d be stride America like a colossus of integrity. Instead, her legal career is in question, and the Establishment seems to be in the verge of permanently eliminating all opposition.

            The Pentagon is overrun with PC generals and admirals who attained flag rank during the Soetoro administration, after kissing enough ass during the Bubba and Hillruh years to be noticed as “potential great leaders.” So, you can bet your ass the military will back Biden if things go to shit.

          • Yohannon January 18, 2021 at 7:08 pm #

            Well you can’t prove your case if they won’t hear it. That all the Courts took this approach shows massive collusion at the highest levels.

            Ever try and tell someone something but they won’t listen? Same thing.

        • Redneck Liberal January 18, 2021 at 8:45 pm #

          A few days ago, you posted that TRUMP had called in the National Guard to D.C. So, which is it?

      • DrTomSchmidt January 18, 2021 at 12:11 pm #

        Yes, bragging about the stock market. He made the exact same claim as Hillary: if you vote for the other guy, your stock market holdings will drop. This in a country where the median retirement savings is under 10,000$. So half the people didn’t care about that message.

      • Yohannon January 18, 2021 at 1:06 pm #

        To be fair, apparently he did want to but the military said don’t ask because the answer will be No.

        Given the nature of our judiciary, he would have gotten nowhere. The Beast has conquered and now they emerge into the Light of Day in all their hideous glory, lusting for the Blood of the Saints.

        He did make some changes in the top Brass, but it doesn’t look like that was enough. The Joint Chiefs wrote a letter warning their brethren not to try anything and that the next President will be Biden.

      • Uncle Abraham January 18, 2021 at 3:31 pm #

        What makes you so sure President Trump isn’t insisting on prosecution of the political criminals running DC, and that setting up such a monumental sting took some time, planning, and fortuitous developments? The troops presently stationed in DC are under the President’s command and are outfitted to stay a while.

          Trump ain’t going to do a thing after all they took his Twitter away and without that he’s lost, and seeing its our fault anyway the voters that is I mean after all we started voting for the mental handicap back in 1980, and even chimps learn from that but the other sub humans never did. So now we moan and groan that the countries coming apart but your just about 40 years to late so jump in the river and go with the flow.!!

      • Uncle Bob January 20, 2021 at 11:11 pm #

        I’m sure he was told that “we don’t prosecute political enemies in this country. It goes against freedom of speech, and would make us a banana republic.” (And, it might affect VERY IMPORTANT PEOPLE.) So what happens? Social media and their allies in government and the so-called journalism community blacklist anybody to the right of Mao, and Lawfare Inc threatens action against anybody named Trump and anyone who ever worked for them. He’ll, some kid lost his job with an airline because the NHL complained he’d interned at the White House sometime in the last four years! But, it’s those fucking Republicans who carry grudges and destroy the lives of innocent people!

        Again, I get the feeling Revelation 17 & 18 are about to be fulfilled in this country. Especially Rev. 18:23 (part) and 24:

        “Your merchants were the world’s important people.
        By your magic spell all the nations were led astray.
        24 In her was found the blood of prophets and of God’s holy people,
        of all who have been slaughtered on the earth.”

    “And yet, to do your duty while breaking the long chain of peaceable transitions from one party of good faith to the another is an awesome and fateful step into the unknown.”

    Several months ago a friend had a dream in which he was walking along a bridge over a chasm with President Trump. Suddenly, without warning yet apparently at ease, the President hoisted himself up and jumped into the chasm.

    Strange, but dreams from God are mysterious until fulfillment and revelation.

    Then, after the election, when it became apparent President Trump was never going to concede and would vigorously pursue justice in the matters of election fraud and the ongoing insurrection, I told my friend – that’s it – the President has jumped into the void – the unknown.

    • tresho January 18, 2021 at 1:03 pm #

      ” the President hoisted himself up and jumped into the chasm” Dreams are ambiguous. Gandalf fell into a chasm in the LOTR, yet somehow reappeared in a different color scheme and continued to play a vital role.

      • Uncle Abraham January 18, 2021 at 3:26 pm #

    An acquaintance has forwarded to me a few videos consisting of various individuals who have “connections” and make claims that Trump will remain as president.

    The most recent scenario claims that he will be inaugurated March 4, after a period of military control.

    Another claims that the fence in DC was installed backwards, meant to keep people in, not to keep people out. In other words, it’s meant to entrap a horde of “traitors” who will then be shipped to Gitmo for prosecution and possibly execution.

    Another claims that the CIA has several psyop agents who have issued videos pretending to support Trump, in an effort to raise false hopes among his supporters.

    Facebook killed a group that had recently blossomed with large numbers of Trump supporters. The Patriot Party – disappeared.

    With just a little more than 48 hours until the dreaded hour of noon on January 20, I am just waiting waiting waiting for something to happen.

            Great point. Lots of weird things going on in the past few days, reminding me of lead-ups to WWI and WWII. A few moguls whacked (I don’t buy the heart attack & suicide), countries’ governments collapsing, etc. etc.

            Oro,

            Italy and Portugal will welcome people receiving a “pension” from another country. They’re trying to attract people with money who won’t become a burden. Interestingly, you can signup for their healthcare systems when there, and from what I’ve seen, if you make enough money, it’s actually cheaper than Medicare.

            In Italy, if you move south of Rome there’s no more than 7% taxation on your pension. Worth considering: the Italians have been collapsing for thousands of years and are good at it. Us, not so much.

    • Dick Tuck 2.0 January 18, 2021 at 10:44 am #

      Here’s what will happen:

      The duly elected pair of Biden-Harris will assume their offices. The tired and demented piece of human trash currently fouling the White House will be flown down to Florida (one-way Thank God!)

      We will then rebuild and make damn sure another trump never happens again.

      With all the pent-up demand and hoarded savings the next few years could be wild.

          Just for the record, 70% of Trump voters think the election was stolen, along with 30% of Democrats . . . is the deep state going to classify these 70 million people as “the far-right”?

          I can assure you they will not forget or forgive their persecution as “domestic terrorists” . . . apparently anyone who argues with the election results or the COVID stats/”vaccines’ now qualifies as a subversive who must lose their job and be re-educated.

        Sometime in the next four years there will be a ‘riot’ in the bond markets, as debt revulsion takes hold and forces up interest rates to something that resembles normal. It could actually happen at any time now, but will probably be prolonged by the new ‘stimulus’ that’s soon to flood the economy. When that wears off, the Fed will take over with more massive buying of assets, but that funny business is going to run out of steam when the smart boys realize that it’s not working anymore. I don’t know who will take the political blame for this devastating situation; in the 1930’s the Republicans were successfully blamed and did not see national power for another twenty years.

      • Uncle Bob January 19, 2021 at 10:14 pm #

        What hoarded savings? Those were spent in the last 10 months by people scared out of their minds by media doomsday stories that make The Stand sound like a fairy tale. There’s no treasure out there, except that of the ruling class. If nothing else, the pandemic served as a way to not only get rid of Trump, but to transfer a ridiculous amount of money from both the Treasury and individual Americans’ bank accounts into the pockets of the very grifters and plutocrats the Left claims to despise.

The air biscuits are in actual reality self-expanding gas produced by little brown pills fed to the congressman in secret by his one-time Chinese spy fuckdoll Fang Fang. The pills – like Covid19 – are forever, and the effect of the growing stench of the farts will disable and eventually kill off all that can smell them, that is all the GOP operatives except Liz Cheney and Mitt Romney. In a couple of years, the woke cultural revolution in the U.S., engineered by the CCP as anti-covid vaccine nanoparticles will return the U.S. to Stone Age, minus the buffaloes, of course.

        No, not taken in, Mary. The point is that the spending on Social Security/Medicare is the only thing in the budget larger than the “defense” budget. There will be about $540bln in annual interest, and it’s been growing.

        At some point we continue to pay for either defense or SS. I had long assumed that defense would be cut to save SS. I now think the opposite: SS will be cut because it’s going to a population that looks like the USA 65 years ago: 90% white. Who better to spend money on: connected people in DC who can pay for K-street lobbyists, or a bunch of old, feeble whites who benefited from “systemic racism?”

      Canadians rarely get as crazy as Americans, that’s our history. Basically, we’re just too pragmatic to go too far off the deep end. Canada has been a safe have for American dissidents ever since you rejected our rightful sovereign.

      The current crop of Trudeau led loonies are likely to be shown the door after the next election, mostly because they botched the Covid-19 response. The current government in Ottawa has a minority position in Parliament, they could easily lose a confidence motion when the House meets again. Also, we know how to run a transparent election.

          And I’ve lived in Canada all my life, and your analysis is off the mark.

          Canada is no more (though no less) leftist than the U.S. That’s a fact, backed up by demographic and geographical voting and social history.

          Castro-loving Trudeau, yes, is currently the PM, but he’s going down hard in the next election, which, BTW, will be conducted aboveboard. The only reason he got elected in the first place was because the only real opposition party, the Conservatives, had completely imploded. They now have a credible leader who’s vowed to take on China (we’ll see) and is making a lot of other core Conservative noises.

          Canada’s had many periods of long Conservative rule, and it’s very possible (and hopeful) they’ll have another long run soon.

    Greetings,

    Which book are we going to get in the short term? Will it be 1984, Brave new world, Farenheit 451, Starship Troopers or A Clockwork Orange?

    Strangely enough, I suspect it will be Atlas Shrugged for the win. Yes, Atlas Shrugged is the dark horse of dystopian futures and, in my opinion, it has won that contest for the short term and won it hands down.

    All the things planned by the traitors require a functioning infrastructure and economy and the last time I bothered to check, both of those were on their last legs. After all, every single corporation headquartered in the USA is quietly putting plans together to “deal” with the doubling of taxes and since wealth doesn’t recognize borders, it looks like we’ll see everyone but the tech companies flee at their soonest convenience.

    It wont stop there. You may hate big oil but our entire transportation network runs on it. Attacking fosile fuels is like your right arm attacking your left arm. You look stupid while doing it and eventually you do not have working arms. After all, how are we supposed to build all those wind farms, solar panels and Teslas without oil? Anyone?

    In Atlas Shrugged, the looters are proponents of high taxation, big labor, government ownership, government spending, government planning, regulation, and redistribution. Sound familiar? It does to me and I am of the opinion that the end will be the same – total infrastructure collapse and the breakup of the United States.

        • DrTomSchmidt January 18, 2021 at 12:34 pm #

          Peak oil happened back in 2005 or 2006. We have pumped more oil since then, but the EROEI had dropped enough that we did not get a net yield of energy to the economy.

          We have dropped over 17% from the fracking peak last February, so now we won’t even have the expensive fracked light sweet crude to burn. And there will be no more money to frack more of it.

          When viewed in terms of long-term available fossil energy drops, you recognize what the last year was: an emergency implementation of enforced fossil-fuel decreased usage. It caused oil to go negative in April, briefly. Now, however, the price is rising, and will continue to do so: the USA cannot pump enough oil to drive down the global price. It never will do so again.

            “When viewed in terms of long-term available fossil energy drops, you recognize what the last year was: an emergency implementation of enforced fossil-fuel decreased usage.”

            Very plausible. Note that the Great Resetters are not wrong about the unsustainability of our present course and mode of society; rather they are wrong because they want to institute the most vile imaginable “remedies” to this unsustainability.

            In classic modern style, their fix will actually open undreamt-of new miseries–just like genetic engineering did in the form of our little Covid!

        “Oil is nothing more than a bridge solution to something far better” This is the standard argument of those who conflate energy and technology. They are not the same thing. Energy is a function of physics, and is subject to the laws of thermodynamics. What you’re talking about is unicorn farts.

        “Oil is nothing more than a bridge solution to something far better. And that will happen, despite the profound ignorance of those willing to destroy the planet in the service of that black filth.”

        Sadly, we are long way from being able to construct a Dyson sphere around to sun to harvest enough energy for our needs, You’re a fool if you actually believe your statement All those solar panels are built using oil products, and they don’t last forever. Nice to have a few if you are camping, but to run your house? You’ll need backup. The alternatives are mere distractions, toys. Rain, or a cloudy day do not enhance the function of solar panels. Calm weather is not conducive to the running of windmills. I know. My city bought one some years back, and I’ve never actually seen it turning. Perhaps they only bought it for backup, so they can adequately suppress us when the time comes. The cop shop in the next town has a huge array of solar panels. Just wait until rocks are thrown at it. All those Teslas have to be plugged in to the electric grid, run primarily on that black filth, so they actually still run on gas, only one step removed from the source, and probably more expensively, just so you can feel superior. Once rolling blackouts set in, you might have trouble powering it up at all. You’ll be riding shanks mare, just like the rest of us.

      I watched a you tube on the teachings of Aldous Huxley and George Orwell last night. Their descriptions of what is going to lead us to a totalitarian state has been used by the Dems as their platform for quite awhile.

      No wait, not just the Dems. The RINOs are even worse as they have betrayed not only the US Patriots, but their own philosophy.

      The Deep State now runs the country, elections no longer matter. So many Dems are going to be created over the next four years that conservative voices will just disappear.

      Unless somebody does something right now. I hope we have not heard the last of Trump yet. What he does right now is more important than anything while he was President.

      The man should have praised the Patriots storming the Capitol, showing what a bunch of lily livered cowards those legislators are, cowering in the basement instead of facing those “rioters”. But they are typical of the Deep State who no longer feel a connection with the public they represent.

      A bunch of “kids” storming the Capitol building, running around, finding nothing really to do, and then leaving, what a major event to set the policies of the next few years. Breeding fear, the Dem trademark.

      • sevensec January 18, 2021 at 5:07 pm #

        Yep, nothing controls and cripples thought so well as these kinds of false dichotomies–Capitalism “versus” Communism etc. etc.

        Communism pretends to be the “truth” (even, amusingly, as it denies all truth), yet without capitalism to feed on—without capitalist production and above all capitalist *assumptions* to strawman—it disintegrates. It has no motive, no form of its own.

        The metaphysical Core of our problem, one might say, *expresses* itself in capitalism, and communism in turn expresses this Core by being an extension of capitalism. Yet the Core is deeper and more extensive than either of these.

        An attack on capitalism will therefore be more effective than an attack on communism, since the latter flows from the former. Yet really one must attack both simultaneously. Further, both attacks will fail if the Core is not identified, exhumed and destroyed.

        Baudrillard actually has interesting things to say on this. Sadly and predictably his conclusion is essentially that Marx just wasn’t “truly left enough”. (Reading postmodernist “thought”: play stupid games, win stupid prizes.)

        • sevensec January 18, 2021 at 5:54 pm #

          (I don’t mean, by the way, to suggest that “capitalism” or “communism” even any longer really describe the Thing that we now are stuck with. Yarvin, on Substack, has a quite good run-down on why this is: see “Socialism and Capitalism Are Both Fake”. Not paywalled last I looked.)

          Another illuminated mind on board. Now we are Three. Third Coast being the other. That reminds me: the only way forward is the Third Way, the Radical Middle, the Apex of the Triangle above the “line” or coin of Capitalism (heads) and Communism (tails), with Socialism being the shaky middle or the coin balanced on its side.

          Capitalism/Communism are philosophies of matter. Fascism and National Socialism are Philosophies of Man.

          • sevensec February 9, 2021 at 2:28 pm #

            I see your thoughts veer Trinitarian. Threes, triangles, third ways. I like the look. And after reading your comment, fragmented images rise up to greet me:

            A child, born in the middle. Great, promising—too great, in fact. Strangled, barely out of its crib—and yet not a moment (or movement) too soon.

            The coin standing on its edge. Heads, Tails, heads, tails… but I think you really mean: East, West, East, West.

            The winds blow from either side; each gust, itself boastful, affects to have made a great conquest; each side struts and frets its hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more. And yet still the coin stands.

            …It does not just stand, though: it *waits*.

            Though I would argue that even a “Philosophy of Man” will not go far enough. We need a philosophy of something *beyond* even Man if we are not to flounder altogether, or fall in total defeat and ignominy, like the National Socialists did. (And arguably Capitalism and Communism *are* “philosophies of man”, too, just ones that posit Man *As* Material.)

            Shall we add this discovery to the end of your collected works, your “Dithyrambs to a Whiteness”? A sort of mystic-revolutionary codicil, mayhap?

            Yes there is a Dark Age mounting—a Black Age, in fact—but must all the earth nonetheless be doused in a second darkness? Can we not have our Atlantis, our Númenor? One gleaming spire, sharp and silver, breaching above the waves in defiance?

      Nickelthrower, I’ve read most of the dystopian classics you mention. All portray things and aspects that now exist and may get bigger. May I suggest another dark & visionary work that explains reality as is / is becoming in 2021?

      The “MaddAddam” trilogy, by Canadian Margaret Atwood (better known for her shorter, duller dystopian novel, “The Handmaid’s Tale”).

      It’s all there, all the things we have the know-how to do today and seem to be aching to do. She said the novels are not sci-fi because she’s not inventing any new technology, only using what we’ve now got.

      Bio engineering on a massive scale (Green Alba is a genetically modified rabbit engineered in a lab to glow green, á la Dolly the sheep; there’s knowledge today to try much harder stuff, and surely it is being tried in places we can’t look into; Atwood imagines the likely following stages of that technology, from custom babies ordered by wealthy couples from live “floor models” to a planned pandemic to wipe out most of the population outside corporate enclaves, to ultimately creating the race that will replace us).

      French novelist (& close to genius, IMO), Michel Houellebecq is also fascinated by how genetic engineering is insinuating itself more and more assertively into reality, the ontological reality of the things that “are” and “exist”. “Being” and “becoming” are close relatives, or maybe the same. Both authors explore the eerie panorama of that particular Pandora’s box, but the similarities stop there.

      There’s much more in Atwood: the growing gap between the gated compounds and the pleeblands; a terminally sick society, glued to screens, addicted to live death and torture, thinking nothing of getting new organs to prolong youth a few decades from live “donors”; the also very sick environment, sucked dry by the $ created to keep the whole, well, dystopia, going another year; the corporate surveillance fascism, the privatized security, the emergence of a persecuted sect – God’s Gardeners – that rejects $ and technology and embrace voluntary poverty and resistance to the system.

      Maybe a Gates or a Zucker are not quite good (bad) enough yet for what’s in Atwood’s trilogy, but I’m sure a Crake exists already, maybe he’s a brilliant student at MIT or the Sorbonne and he will be the one to attempt to play God, like the author’s character in the book.

      Those books. We hope we won’t see the worst of it, or our children. Hope was the only thing that remained in Pandora’s box. I could never understand that bit of mythology trivia. Is it a good thing or a bad thing? Was not released into the world, so we can’t have it? But we do! I think the Greeks thought of hope as a bad thing, a thing that conspires against one’s clear eyed understanding of his real – hopeless – situation. It’s easier to live and die if you don’t hope for anything, right?

      • NickelthroweR January 18, 2021 at 4:10 pm #

        Greetings,

        I will look into this trilogy that you suggest. Like you, I still read and that puts us into a very tiny minority these days.

        I’ll need some convincing that a techno-dystopian future awaits us though. Such things require banalities such as a stable medium of exchange, a functioning grid, worldwide trade and a fortified infrastructure. Those in power have zero understanding of how anything actually works. How can such fools shepard us into the future? How will they manage to keep the lights on??

        • Rulo Deschamps January 18, 2021 at 5:22 pm #

          Nickelthrower, they can’t keep the lights on for everybody, but certainly the privileged fifth, at least in Atwood’s vision, can. Won’t we party until there’s no party left? Keep kicking people out of the party but hoard the coke & booze & fun? That’s “us”, man, maybe not you or I, but some of our fellow humans, if observation and experience and history are any guide, will do whatever it takes to party til the end.

          The technocratic pipe dream is to justify those in charge of how $ is created and flows, and what we do with it as brilliant innovators, or worse, humanitarians. Would you think of a version ten times more ruthless than Dorsey or Bezos as a humanitarian?

          I hear what you say, and in the books, ultimately even the top crust collapses, because they overplay “gods” releasing a pandemic that only they have a vaccine for to create their “brave new world”, and the whole thing backfires and in fact we ALL become extinct. The book is a journey to that. Where I live, FL, they advertise “vaginal rejuvenation surgery” and the old wealthy crones of Naples and Miami flock for it – I don’t have a doubt that they’ll take whatever “rejuvenation”, ethical or not, at whatever price, until they are under a bridge – but everybody will be under a bridge way before them, so they can harvest whatever organs and pay whatever scientists to keep working on their idea of paradise on Earth: endless $ & a brand new cunny.

        “Bio engineering on a massive scale (Green Alba is a genetically modified rabbit engineered in a lab to glow green, á la Dolly the sheep; there’s knowledge today to try much harder stuff, and surely it is being tried in places we can’t look into […] “

        Thank you for that bit of information – I hadn’t heard of it. So now I have found two namesakes – a glowing bunny and a song on the album ‘Stone of Destiny’, which I only came across days ago. Now I suppose I’ll have to listen to it – I hope it’s not too awful.

        https://open.spotify.com/album/5d5WrI7ISEXzBbprxmjFgN?highlight=spotify:track:40aULJAyjy1NhjKuyyS6uY

        As regards ‘and surely it is being tried in places we can’t look into’, it is at least interesting to note that attempts to genetically edit babies (in this instance in a benign cause, even if the attempt was unacceptable) was severely dealt with even by our dystopian Chinese friends, and by the much-hated WHO.

        (I just found this out when looking into the legacy of Dolly, who was raised a bike-ride from where I live).

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/He_Jiankui_affair

        The reaction to He’s actions was widespread criticism and included concern for the well-being of the girls. He presented his research at the Second International Summit on Human Genome Editing at the University of Hong Kong on 28 November 2018. The next day, Chinese authorities suspended all his research activities. He was immediately detained in SUSTech campus and kept under surveillance. On 30 December 2019, Chinese authorities announced that he was found guilty of forging documents and unethical conduct; he was sentenced to three years in prison with a fine of 3 million yuan (US$430,000).

        “As a consequence to He’s work, the World Health Organization launched a global registry in 2019 to track research on human genome editing, after a call to halt all work on genome editing. In May 2019, lawyers in China reported, in light of He’s experiment, the drafting of regulations that anyone manipulating the human genome by gene-editing techniques, like CRISPR, would be held responsible for any related adverse consequences.”

            Oh, I don’t mean to publicly join ranks, I was thinking if it could be organized (it can’t), all GOP voters just silently voted Dem one year (test run), essentially wiping out the GOP but also pushing the worst Dems out of office in favor of somewhat better options…if it works, do it again and shift again, then split the party as you mentioned.

            It makes for a good movie premise (like the ending Santo Poco scene in The Three Amigos with all the villagers in costume to fool El Guapo and his men))…but not so much possible in real life.

          Infiltration is a viable strategy. Our present situation is proof of nothing if not that. Further, I see no cohesive formations, military or otherwise, with anywhere near the power needed to *immediately* and *directly* oppose a runaway leftist terror-State–short of secession, which so far lacks support and would fail in 1865 fashion if not handled absolutely perfectly. There is grassroots stuff developing rapidly, but it will be crushed if it ventures any open conflict.

          So infiltration it is, then. The world is changing; leftism and “progress” are revealed increasingly as profoundly dysfunctional and *ugly* ideas that can only exist if propped up by force. This means, despite all present appearances, that those ideas are on the *defensive* with regard to the *long* game. But do you (we) have the patience and discipline and intellectual grit to wait another 60 years for our own “march through the institutions” to bear fruit?

        Science is just a bunch of theories. The debate on this blog about the Covid is a perfect example. Science does not present us with facts, just opinions. Proof of the attributes with consequences should be presented about the virus, heck all viruses. As a solution for societal issues, science sucks. So politics takes over and politics just divides people.

        Science is no answer to anything as Ol’ Joe is going to find out real fast. His initial proposals for Covid are useless. And he is going to spend hundreds of billions of dollars to accomplish lining PTB pockets and will do nothing to stop the surges.

        Watch the reaction to climate change over the next few years. Biden is rejoining the Paris accord, the biggest rip off of the US and Europe in history. The Paris accord has continued without The US and nothing has changed in four years. This is just another Dem fueled globalist rip off of the USA. Climate change, the real solutions will never be incorporated as the disruption to human lifestyles is too drastic. And BTW, the GND will be incorporated into the politics of the next thirty years, not because of threats, but because of Peak Oil.

          ” the real solutions will never be incorporated as the disruption to human lifestyles is too drastic.”

          I totally agree with you there, JohnAZ. Nothing more than tweaking around the edges will ever be done. No-one would dare be honest with people about what would actually be required to stop climate change getting any more serious (and remember that about 30 more years of ‘more serious’ is already baked in because of the time lag between the addition of CO2 to the atmosphere and the manifestation of its effects in the climate).

          That doesn’t make the science wrong, however.

          But the disruptions to human lifestyles are going to happen anyway, eventually. So both sides are wasting their time arguing.

            “stop climate change getting any more serious” No way that is even possible. Whatever the ongoing change in the climate is, not even reversion to a hunter & gatherer lifestyle will change the momentum significantly in anything less than 10 or 20 years, maybe longer.

            Er no. What I have argued against is (a) the refusal to accept the overwhelming evidence of the science and (b) the related belief that the science is all a scam created specifically to facilitate the coming of the New World Order and suchlike.

            My belief is that we could have made things easier for ourselves if we hadn’t had to waste 40 or 50 years arguing with deniers. Likewise, we could also have spent our dwindling resources preparing for energy penury and developing simpler, resilient systems, were it not for the fact that most people would be so freaked out by the truth about resources that it would probably create financial and societal mayhem.

            My position on climate change hasn’t changed – nor has your habit of deliberately misreading my posts.

          The crux of it is complexity—that is the shoal on which the ship of science has lately run aground. Where there are simple, clear laws—gravity, electricity, some of medicine, even the genetic code—science is and will remain powerful.

          But where there is complexity, Science amounts to little more than prestigious, pompous word-fog.

          So: that CO2 can trap heat is fairly simple science. But how the global climate-system responds to it is very, very complex.

          • GreenAlba January 18, 2021 at 8:03 pm #

            Of course it is. We know that there will be more serious floods, more serious wildfires, more serious droughts and heatwaves, etc. etc. But we don’t know exactly when and where they’ll hit.

            “Science amounts to little more than prestigious, pompous word-fog.”

            And that sounds a little disingenuous and lacking in discrimination, perhaps.

            What the climate scientists warned of 40 years ago has pretty much come to pass, except that they were too conservative. Scientists are generally conservative – sensationalism is for newspapers and the interwebz.

          I’m afraid the politicization of science has turned your brain into mush. Politics is the art of getting people to believe whatever you are selling without reference to fact or reality. It’s goal is to put money and power into the pockets of you and your handlers.

          Science is the best system humans have invented for arriving at truth. Your “just a bunch of theories” are called theorems or propositions. If they are to contribute to the advancement of science they must be formulated in such a manner that they can be tested and proven valid or false. Once a theorem is presented to the public of fellow scientists they immediately try to tear it down— that is the way the scientific method works. If the critics fail to disprove the theorem it is provisionally accepted as true until another theorem that better explains the underlying conditions emerges.

          Scientific truths are always provisional, although they become more and more likely as they fend off challengers. It’s quite difficult to not believe that the earth is round once you fail to sail off the edge.

          Science, being an activity carried out by humans, doesn’t always operate as a rational and ideal manner. Indeed, any study of the history of science will show that the practitioners engage in all the manipulations and power struggles that our species has become so adept at. That doesn’t mean that any amount of power politics can change the underlying reality.
          When all the summer ice melts in the Arctic ocean, it doesn’t matter how much you believe in climate change denial, it’s still water under the keel of your boat and collapsing permafrost on land. Or if you believe that using leeches to draw blood will cure your child’s polio the child will still die a twisted and horrible death.

          But I try to be an equal-opportunities spanner in the works, propaganda-wise. So if people talk blithely about ‘free’ healthcare systems, I’m happy to put them right too. 🙂

            Uh oh

            Anti national health care is not real popular here right now.

          • GreenAlba January 18, 2021 at 11:58 am #

            I’m not anti-national healthcare. I think it’s extremely civilised and humane. My husband (who’s not British – the Irish don’t have an NHS) used to call the NHS one of the wonders of the modern world (although he sees all the disadvantages of actually working in it these days).

            I just don’t think people should refer to it as ‘free’ without qualification, because it isn’t.

            As you know, people don’t always appreciate ‘free’ stuff. They take the piss. Older people tend not to – younger people quite often do. They get very entitled.

            Free (at the point of use) systems rely on people being responsible. Some people never will be. There’s a patient on the list of the unit where my husband works (it’s an out-of-hours GP service, so you wouldn’t expect the same people to turn up all the time, in a reasonable world, but they do).

            The system shows the number of visits (at the hospital or at home) until it hits 999, then it stops counting. One patient, with a personality disorder (they are legion) has exceeded the count. Given that you (the taxpayer) are paying for either a doctor + car + driver (for security and time) to go to someone’s house, or, should they demand it (and they do), a taxi to bring them to the hospital, those 999 + consultations – most of which will be a waste of the doctor’s time – are only free to her.

            My husband’s view is that such people should be told to f*** off. But that’s not going to happen until they start being charged for taking the piss.

          • Yohannon January 18, 2021 at 2:08 pm #

            Can you define “take the piss” please. Something like believing nonsense?

            In one famous case, a young Black thug needed a heart and got put ahead of older White people despite his record. The great man forgave everyone for their racism. After he was feeling better, he was killed while engaged in a home break in. Thank God for the right to bear arms, right? Break in robberies exploded in Britain after you all were disarmed.

            No, it just means taking the mickey (out of the system). Taking advantage. Abusing the system because it’s ‘free’.

            If you invited someone in for a coffee and they helped themselves to the contents of your fridge, they’d be taking the piss. Making a monkey of you. 🙂

            I was burgled once when I was in London for work (and lived on my own). Best if it happens when you’re not there. I wasn’t remotely traumatised, but it was a nuisance having to wait up till 2.30am for the overstretched police (who couldn’t do anything anyway) and making a list of ancient bits and pieces and their prices for the insurance company. I don’t recall ever thinking I wish I had a gun. And I can be pretty sure that any junkie who breaks into my flat to pay for his next fix or three isn’t going to have a gun either, which is reassuring.

For my tastes, Trump could have done more to end the globalist wars and atrocities. He was a chump in the hands of bad advisors. Biden will be a complete sock puppet in their hands.

            But I believe more civilians were killed by drones under Mr Trump than under Mr Obama, although claims have been made to the contrary. It’s great that he started no wars (although it looked touch and go a couple of times), but the droning goes on out of sight and out of mind.

            It was Mr Trump who decreed that drone deaths should no longer be reported.

            @Green Alba —

            You’re right about the NHS being a mixed blessing and not free either. That VAT @ 18%? Add that to your tax bill! Theodore Dalrypmle wrote a book, Life at the Bottom, about the effects of socialism on England and a critical examination of the NHS (he’s a psychiatrist who worked with inmates and in the East End of London). There’s no perfect solution, that’s for certain, but the rampant costs here plus the effects of a bad diet since birth are taking their toll already.

          • GreenAlba January 18, 2021 at 8:15 pm #

            Thank you, SW, I know about the book although I haven’t read it.

            I have read The Citadel (A.J. Cronin), which, although a work of fiction, was based on the author’s experience (as a doctor) of pre-NHS healthcare in the UK. It has been credited with leading to a massive push for national healthcare. It’s worth a read too.

            Remember that huge numbers of ordinary men who went to join up to fight in WW1 were found to be unfit for service, because of under-nourishment and poor health. That was nothing whatever to do with socialism.

            You are right that there is no perfect solution, but I’ll take the humanity (and the economics) of the NHS over the American system any day. I’ve had excellent value for my 18% VAT (income tax has plummeted since I started work and VAT isn’t applied to necessities like food).

            The NHS was a year old when my parents married, so it saw them through the rest of their lives and has seen me through most of mine, for which I can never thank it enough, especially since my illness of 18 months ago. I doubt it will be there to see me right to the end, unless the lurgi gets me sooner than I’d like, but you never know.

          • SW January 19, 2021 at 9:53 am #

            @ GreenAlba–

            I wasn’t disagreeing with you about the NHS at all. My daughter married a young Brit and they now have two children. At one point their oldest had a serious infection and he received excellent care. If not for the NHS the medical bills would have broken them. I’ve been an advocate for universal health care in America all my life and the point I was trying to make is that it’s becoming more and more elusive in the US.

            Overall poor health is now common here. Young men who apply to join the armed forces are turned down b/c they can’t meet the physical requirements, are functionally illiterate or have a criminal record.

            I’ll read The Citadel and thank you for the recommendation.

          • GreenAlba January 19, 2021 at 10:25 am #

            Well, that was one of the most productive exchanges I’ve experience on here, because before I read your post just now, I ordered Life at the bottom! As Dalrymple’s books are bizarrely cheap, I also ordered another, plus a couple of free samples.

            I’m aware of where he’s coming from ideologically.

            The health issue is just one part of a wider problem, which has been with us for centuries. The price of demanding complete personal responsibility is watching decent people (and, more specifically, their completely innocent children) go under.

            I wouldn’t want to see a return to debtors’ prisons and Victorian workhouses either, and people being viewed as morally lacking because of economic failure. My own husband, before I married him, experienced a business bankruptcy (in his 50s) and lost everything but the shirt on his back, including his pension savings, so I’m aware that things don’t always work out, no matter how hard you work.

    I hope that half the country can eventually settle into just being annoyed at the administration in power, as has pretty much always been the case in my lifetime. With the purge going on, I don’t think that will be so easy this time around, though.

    And I hope when Biden is removed from office that it’s only due to his cognitive loss, and not something that can be blamed on a “right-wing extremist”.

    The US, like most all of the world, is under a foreign occupation of hostile Vatican/CIA commie/fascist agents. That’s been clear for a long time.

    Until these commies/fascists are publicly executed en masse and the fear of God almighty is installed their being, it will be difficult to curb their malevolence and arrogance. As it is, the best way forwards for the ordinary citizen is to follow the money as they say, and start a campaign to defund these commie/fascist entities and their operations by way of boycott.

    Here’s a short list of commie/fascist corporations sponsoring BLM gleamed off just this single article:

    https://www.cnet.com/how-to/companies-donating-black-lives-matter

    Ford
    Berkshire Hathaway
    Coca-Cola
    McDonald’s
    Wendy’s
    Apple
    Amazon
    Google
    Microsoft
    Square
    Ubisoft
    Spanx
    Walmart
    Target
    Home Depot
    Gap brands (Athleta, Old Navy, Gap)
    Tom’s Shoes
    Nike
    Levis
    Lululemon
    EA Games
    Ubisoft
    Etsy
    H&M
    Anastasia Beauty

    There are hundreds if not thousands more such commie/fascist corporations, foundations, “NGOs”, and they should be targeted by all patriots. The commie/fascist corporations that populate the lying MSM Vatican/CIA PSYOPS complex are particularly odious, as are all persons associated with the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

    Speaking of the CIA. The CIA and the other secret agencies are criminal mafia organizations involved in drug running, weapons smuggling, child trafficking, bribery corruption, illegal spying, blackmail, mass murder, war and other political mischief. Their existence is absolutely disgusting and needs to be put to an end.

    Diplomatic relations with the Vatican and China should be severed and all groups and organizations associated with these two vile entities be made illegal.

      Plenty of options if you are not into global corpro-fascism — particularly the food front. Why would you ever ingest McDonald’s products in the first place?

      • akmofo January 18, 2021 at 12:13 pm #

        Yup. As I’ve posted in the previous thread, these corporations are dealers of poison. All of them, in one form or another, are dealers of poison and destruction to our physical health, our financial health, our political health, our spiritual heath, and are destructive to our community and nation.

        I would even go so far and say that ultimately every company that’s traded on the shares market should be boycotted. They are all part of the same Vatican/CIA unaccountable fascist/commie global combine. They are predators and we are their prey. The movie series Alien/Aliens perfectly illustrates the mindset we are dealing with. The Weyland Corporation will risk destroying humanity for profit. But profit for whom? My belief is that most of the profit goes to dark entities that are deliberately hidden from public knowledge. These dark entities scribe the staged scripted theater, the fake dialectic and fake narratives, we are made to believe is “reality”.

      “When we gather to hang the last capitalists they will argue amongst themselves to sell us the rope.”

      That quote is attributed, in various forms, to Marx, Lenin, and/or Stalin, although it was probably not said by any. It does, however, encapsulate a truth about capitalists.

      The people/companies you list are mostly just wanting to make a buck.

      • akmofo January 19, 2021 at 11:54 am #

        Same for the Weyland Corporation in Alien(s). Hollywood fiction is closer to reality than you might imagine. Criminals always project their crimes in one way or another. You just have to know how to see and listen.

        Marx/Lenin/Stalin were all sponsored by the west. They knew what they were talking about.

        Again, I ask the question, profit for whom?
        And I’ve already answered that question.

    Or you can grow up, be adults, and focus on improving your lives instead of blaming anyone and everyone for why you’re alone, scared, and unable to comprehend reality.

    Maybe start with the idea you put your faith in Donald Trump. i mean really, of ALLLLL the people you could’ve gone with to initiate America’s inevitable authoritarian phase – you picked that guy???

        The Globalist agenda for a new serfdom-slave society:
        :
        1) Export as many high paying jobs as possible
        2) Bring in illegals who will work cheap in many jobs like construction, landscaping, etc
        3) Close millions of businesses (for health reasons) bankrupting the
        entrepreneurial class.
        4) Destroy the value of currency by printing up trillions in new dollars.

        I could go on and on. But do you see that these globalists do not love us. They don’t have our best interests at heart. So what does that say about all the trolls on this site who embrace their evil?

        • Yohannon January 18, 2021 at 2:29 pm #

          And never forget Trump’s “I want these people here because the economy is so good”. He campaigned as a populist nationalist and governed as a typical Republican.

          Laura Ingraham told him right to his face that this is not what he had campaigned on. Basically Bush 2 all over again: Problem with illegals? Legalize them. Problem solved. Trump never showed any interest in getting rid of them or e-veryify to keep them from working.

          • Night Owl January 18, 2021 at 2:53 pm #

            You can’t do that tho. His proposal was to ensure people came here by legal means. Those who are already there can stay. You are talking about tearing apart families, and in many cases, there are quite a few decent, hard-working people among them.

            The core issue was always stopping an open borders style situation, and encouraging legal immigration that was controllable. This is a recipie for success.

            Unlike many here, my family has been through the process, and on both sides of the pond. The process is good and works.

          • Night Owl January 18, 2021 at 2:55 pm #

        Consider Kamala’s race on both sides. Some in her circles would have told her.

        Btw, other countries don’t have dates set by constitution.

        Must read again to see if the bad stuff will only happen by date of the new guy incoming or also depends on place. That would somewhat explain a virtual ceremony.

    Zeitgeist.

    That’s a tough opponent. I’m glad you used that word today, it does put perspective on how each side appears to the other as, “out of their skulls.”

    Growth is a process. Change is constant. The change ushered in by the American’s Declaration of Independence, I think, was the first of it’s kind. These words were never truer than they are today. Though, when I weigh the behavior of the left against the metric, “a decent respect to the opinions of mankind” found in the declaration, they come up short.

    Here’s to the amicable break up of our relationship. The property settlement should be done according to IRS tax records. Buh, bye!

    In Congress, July 4, 1776

    The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    This won’t be like the old Civil War. That was before electricity and people were more self-reliant. They had farmland, wood ovens (with plenty of wood), and water wells on property. Today, anti-establishment people who have very little leverage to fight back. Getting cut from the internet will be the first strike. Strikes two and three will be cutting the electric and water supplies, just like Gavin Newsom did to those who refused to follow the lockdown orders.

    Remember Biden’s reply back in 2019 to the guy who criticized him about gun rights. He said: “Hey man, what good is an AR-15 against an F-15 fighter with Hellfire missiles?”

    So no civil war. I’m inclined to say we will be forced into submission or some degree of subversive cultural (not political) resistance like the early underground Christians and the Poles when the Nazis invaded.

      There is a lot that can be done by the right to take out the wokesters. For one, the democrats delared war on the working class who in effect keep the wheels of civilization going. Most of the left resides in large metro areas where food needs to be trucked in. The “Stop the tires” movement cancelled their protest back in November since Trump had legal options available at the time. Truck drivers are now in favor of selectively boycotting food shipments to cities like NYC, Philadelphia, Portland, DC. etc… Let’s see how Biden does when his precious leftist supporers are foraging for tree bugs to stay alive. Not to mention a few selective electrical transformers blasted with high power rifles would make their misery all the more complete. Perhaps a reminder of who actually keeps civilization running would be a great wake up call for the leftists?

    Hang on Patriots… America is going down the biggest rabbit hole this country has ever seen. We are being led by the corrupt anti-American clowns that were just elected. At the end of this rabbit hole is “The Great Reset” (see the World Economic Forum’s charter). The World Economic Forums’ mantra is “Build Back Better”… This is relevant in that it’s the same slogan that Joe, Head of the Biden Crime Family, used during the latter part of his pathetic basement campaign.

    If you want a taste of “The Great Reset”, just research China’s “Credit Scoring System”. America’s new Marxist/Maoist inspired leaders are using Climate Change and now COVID to herd all “Useless Eaters and Deplorables” into a Corporatocracy arrangement where Governments are in collusion with Big Business control everything in our lives.

    As we sit here today on MLK day what would he have thought about the coming Authoritarian regime that cheated to gain the levers of power?

    I find it odd that we are constantly told what group we are in and what we are allowed to speak on.
    The truth are lies and lies are spun as the truth constantly.

    We saw that with Joe Biden and his ridiculous comment about “truth over facts.”

      As a Communist and a believer in Black Power, he would have loved it. His pacifism was tactical, not heart felt.

      He viciously mocked Jackie as she bent over JFK’s body, “Looks like she’s about to blow him”. He was a hologram, a psy-op. And White Americans fell for it hook, line, and sinker.

      Some Blacks are trying to rehabilitate him, fighting back against “the Whitewash”. I agree with this. He was a Racist who hated Whites, except for Whites who hated themselves – like his White comrades.

    Didn’t science tell us that children do not get this disease and could not transmit it.

    Why then did I just read a local article by the head of Chidren’s Medicine at Banner hospitals that hundreds of children are being hospitalized for Covid and the trends in the last two months are upwards.

    Science lies for politics!

    • MaryV January 18, 2021 at 3:28 pm #

      Also, epidemiologists all tell us that viruses last 70 days in any given population. So it was gone in June. After no kids getting it. Now kids are getting colds and flu like always, but they are being treated like bioweapons.

      It’s beyond sick. There is this ‘doctor’ on Twitter, a woman, who is pushing pushing pushing for kids to be vaxxed, despite all the people dying from whatever the hell is in that jab.

      • JohnAZ January 18, 2021 at 6:37 pm #

        These kids in Arizona have the crud, not colds. Kids with colds do not end up hospitalized.

        I think if people had taken the crud seriously last spring and just socially distanced, we would have avoided two surges and Trump would still be president. The Right should have taken a position to socially distance, wear masks only when necessary, maintain good hygiene and have sanctuaries. And go to work, go to restaurants, bars, just follow the simple rules.

        Instead we get Biden who is about to drop a 100 day mandatory mask law on us.

          You’re right, John. As twee as it sounds, “A stitch in time saves nine” applies here. We may all thank Ex-President Trump for the impending 100-day mandatory masking. If he’d shown ANY cue whatsoever back in March 2020, this could have been a whole lot less nasty. It wouldn’t have been easy, but it could have been on the downside of the slope by now, emerging from the hellish position we’re in.

            Tony Schwartz wrote ‘Art of The Deal” for Trump back in 1987. He has come to profoundly regret it and publically apologizes when he has the opportunity.

            As to the $500,000 (is that all a lifetime of opprobrium is worth now?) for ghosting Trump’s memoir of “The White House Years”, said writer had better ask for the bucks upfront. Just ask Rudi Guiliani…

            As to the rest of your post…what? What are you talking about?
            I’ve never burned a book, banned a book or a website, or anyone’s right to say what they believe. You’re in that weird mindset where everything is ‘the left’s’ fault, and anyone who disagrees with you is “the left”. It’s very one-dimensional thinking.

    Jenna Ryan’s comments show how much this president has brainwashed so many people. She says she was just following Trump’s orders, in marching on the Capitol. She’d like a pardon but says it wouldn’t alter her support of Trump, if he doesn’t grant her one. So, he said he’s be there with his supporters, marching on the Capitol, but left after his inciting speech, he belatedly tried to disown the “mob”, in a couple of videos, and he might not grant pardons to all those who followed his orders. But, still, Jenna supports him. Trump got it right when he said he could shoot someone in the street and still be just as popular.

        Did Trump go with the protestors to the Capitol, as he promised? No.

      By posting this you have undone yourself.

      GO have a listen to all of Trumps speech’s up to the day and including the day he used terms like peacefully march no violence.
      This is as big of a lie as Trump was doing Russias bidding.

      • Mike Roberts January 18, 2021 at 11:56 pm #

        Yes, he mentioned peacefully, once, but, like most of Trump’s words, they don’t make clear grammatical sense. Much of what he said in regard to going to the Capitol and having to fight was clearly aimed at getting the crowd angry, especially as he came up with lots of made up stuff about the fraudulent election, designed to make the crowd feel the election was stolen, making them angrier.

        • rube-i-con January 19, 2021 at 8:57 am #

          so in other words you just believe what you want to believe regardless of his words to remain peaceful

          but …. but….he made the crowd angry…..says *you*

          explain specifically how his words don~t make grammatical sense

          you can~t since it~s your lame attempt to justify your bias

            “so in other words…”

            No. In context, he only used the word “peacefully” and words derived from “peace”) once. The whole tenor of his speech was to rile the crowd up. You must have read reports of some of those arrested saying they were just doing what Trump ordered. Mitch McConnell (I know, you hate him now despite almost 4 years of doing Trump’s bidding) has said that Trump, and others, provoked the attack.

            Grammatical errors? Well, the sentence you referred to is grammatically incorrect: “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” I’ll leave that as an exercise for you. There are plenty of other examples but I’ll leave that as an exercise for you, too.

            That you don’t recall the bleach quote suggests I listened to Trump far more than you. However, to help you out, you can see his words here: https://www.huffpost.com/entry/trump-suggests-injecting-disinfectant-light-fight-coronavirus_n_5ea218a0c5b6d376358c7711

    “Does the president have it or not? Something is going to drop in the hours ahead. Will it be consequential? Will it correct anything that’s gone wrong? Or will it just drive the country closer to civil war?”

    It’s way too late for a smoking gun in the form of a bombshell report exposing the Democrats malfeasance, foreign election interference etc. The media, the judiciary system, big tech, the bureaucracy etc will just cover it up. Hardly anyone will know about it.

    And civil war? It’s not the 1800’s anymore. Suppose you’re a disgruntled militia group member somewhere in rural Georgia, seething with anger at the egregious fraud which was this election. You want to take up arms against the tyrannical and illegitimate government. But alas, your electricity comes from two or three states away, your gasoline from yet another few states away, if not another country, your ammunition is manufactured in one of 3 or 4 big factories in the country, your banking is digital and therefore at the mercy of the far-left. How are you going to wage a civil war when it’s so easy for the Democrats to cut your supply lines in such an interconnected and centralized economic system? The ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL requisite for waging a civil war is a high level of self-sufficiency such as existed in the 1800’s. This no longer exists in an era where the far left controls ALL the commanding heights of the economy and of the government.

    Let’s face it: the US is fucked. F*U*C*K*E*D! Born in carrying capacity surplus and high ideals, died in 2020 from cynicism, bad faith, mis-governance and gross carrying capacity deficit. It was never going to last. It was always going to end. I didn’t expect this kind of ending, with a woke insurrection fueled by lies and hallucinations. But this is what you get when you don’t fight the long and corrosive process of cultural and ideological subversion by Marxism/Leninism. The end will be a LOT more painful than it needs to be.

      This is a well-reasoned and sound estimation of the chance for overthrowing the central power in today’s America. But centralized power will inevitably fall apart after the grinding long-term collapse which has become inevitable.

      There will come a point at which local warlords can more effectively control a small territory than any distant, centralized state. In that world conditions will vary widely, from utter destitution to perhaps some degree of stability and comfort.

      To be sure, most of us will be much worse off, post-collapse but, if it happens soon enough, the rest of the world will be much the better for it.

      • shox January 18, 2021 at 10:15 pm #

        @Zoltar

        I concur fully. Once the super-system breaks down into smaller decentralized sub-systems, we will have the rise of warlords just as in Iraq when ISIS swept to power (though I don’t expect American men to be that savage and cruel). Life may become more precarious and brutish, but at least there will be more freedom from the life-sapping forces of leftism.

    All military recruits across ALL services are taught the major articles of the laws we live by (code of conduct), most notably the DUTY to disobey any unlawful order, regardless of what rank the person who issued said order is. We swear an oath to the constitution, not any political position I.e. President. And exactly how do you “think” they’re brainwashed? To kill (murder) without remorse? Burn villages? Rape women?

    The blue pill.

    Too many took it.

    Ignorance. Of the despotism inherent in a 1-party state.
    Backed and encouraged by the corporatocracy of the 4th estate.

    Some try to take it, but alas it has no effect.
    A thinking mind cannot capitulate to ignorance.
    The socratic trained mind cannot be deceived.
    The selfless cannot be overcome by emotion. Blinded.

    Nobody expected this type of ending.
    Blatant gaslighting.
    Although it was not the lights that grew dimmer.
    It was the populace.

    Before, man was captivated with, and indoctrinated by, religion.
    Now, that same easily influenced cohort. the majority, a constant in a population, is enthralled by the state. Utopianism. A clean, just, equal, woke, and tamed world. The weak willed. The uncritical mind.
    Persuaded.

    Yet there was always a small amount who did not.
    They were sometimes referred to as intellectuals.
    Dissenters.

    And to a few, geniuses:

    “genius is simply the completest objectivity, the objective tendency of the mind, as opposed to the subjective, which is directed to one’s own self — in other words, to the will. Thus genius is the faculty of continuing in the state of pure perception, of losing oneself in perception, and of enlisting in this service the knowledge which originally existed only for the service of the will; that is to say, genius is the power of leaving one’s own interests, wishes, and aims entirely out of sight, thus of entirely renouncing one’s own personality for a time, so as to remain pure knowing subject, clear vision of the world”

Not to mention all of the bribes to Biden from China, Ukraine, Russia, and countless other locales, not to mention what Frank, James and Valerie Biden have scooped up from their familial associations with The Big Guy. We also now see that John Burnham is actually an anti-Trumper who has delayed his forever-expected “report” on Democrat malfeasance until TBG could become prez and send the incriminating evidence down the same commode.

    Oath of Military Office:

    I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.[1]

    Nothing about loyalty to the President or Speaker or any one else. Only the Constitution. Do they understand it? Or value it? The Letter of the Joint Chiefs for Biden indicates neither.

    In contrast, the oath of enlistment is swears loyalty to the President and their commanding officers.

      Evidence that they are immune to the mass psychosis that has “you” (the collective “you”) in its grip?

      What they ‘accept’ is the words of the second-to-last paragraph:

      “On January 20, 2021, in accordance with the Constitution, confirmed by the states and the courts, and certified by Congress…”

      What else would you have them say? ‘Screw this for a joke! Let’s take to the streets!’ So now, I guess, the Joint Chiefs of Staff are ‘in on it’ too.

    In 1945, before even most of your parents were born, the American military, along with those of the British, French, and Russian forces, put on trial the senior officers of the German military, for their role in following the tyrannical and despotic regime of Adolf Hitler, even into genocidal mania.

    In every case, those commanders pled to that tribunal that they had no idea what all was being carried out by the Nazi high command, and that they were military soldiers, doing their jobs, and “just following orders”.

    To a man, that defense was thrown out as completely insufficient, and wholly inexcusable, and as a result, they were given harsh prison terms, and some were executed by hanging, for crimes against humanity. Because they did, indeed, “just follow orders”.

    The execrable letter above, from your duly appointed commanders, is nothing more nor less than them telling you to “just follow orders”.

    The best face to put on it is that it constitutes nothing less than deliberate and damnable treason, by those very officers entrusted with the leadership of you all, and protecting the safety of the nation.

    The generals and admirals you all swore oaths to obey (I swore the identical oath, like you, and it had no expiration date) have abdicated their leadership role above you, and have, with lies of omission, committed you to the same path as the German generals and admirals did to their troops in 1933. Rest assured, both they and the nation will bear the cost of their leadership failure, here and hereafter.

    There are serious questions and challenges about the presidential election of 2020. Criminal flaws and unconstitutional breaches of law led to massive irregularites, and make that entire election’s alleged result entirely suspect, and the declared winner completely fraudulent.

    You know about fraudulent enlistments. Some of you witnessed people in your basic training units or first duty stations suddenly whisked away, because it was determined by proper investigations that they had enlisted to serve fraudulently. That’s how it works in the military, and how it’s supposed to work in the nation at large. But the nation has been failed by those who should have known better. States certified elections, for partisan reasons, which even a blind man could see were falsified. Courts refused to so much as examine a single piece of evidence that would have proved such was so, beyond any reasonable doubt. The Congress followed suit and ratified those fraudulent certifications, and all levels of government intend to see to swearing in a commander in chief over you who has no more right to the office than does a banana.

    We are not a banana republic. But your leadership wishes to behave as though we were.

    Your leadership was therefore placed in the unenviable position of having to decide whether to exercise the judgement entrusted to their leadership positions. To a man, they have chosen to abdicate that trust, and command you to follow them down that dark road of feigning no knowledge of the realities above. Just follow orders.

    Almost every one of you knows the Leadership Traits. Many of you, by heart, and you live and embody them every day, upon which the safety of the nation depends.

    Your commanders have failed to show Integrity, failed to exercise Intelligence, completely abandoned Courage, used criminally poor Judgement, completely abandoned Justice, and acted entirely out of Selfishness, in ordering you, in no certain terms, to jump off the cliff with them and for them, lest they risk their own positions of confidence and trust. They have sold you and your loyalty down the river to protect nothing but their own pensions and positions of authority.

    If they had possessed the slightest inkling of duty or honor to their country, they would have resigned and turned in their stars, rather than order you all to do what they should not and could not do. They are faithless and worthless for failing to do so.

    They have, by these breaches, made an unsound and untimely decision, set a horribly bad example to their troops, utterly misinformed you, and have abandoned any pretense of looking out for your welfare, or that of the nation they are charged to serve. Those are leadership failures of the worst kind.

    America has many enemies. As always, most of them are foreign, and we beg you and pray you to continue to serve us all, to protect this great nation from them. But now we also have domestic enemies. Your chain of command has chosen to ally with them, and certify the presidency of a banana.

    In terms you cannot misunderstand,

    That is an unlawful order. It carries no weight, commands no obedience, and following it will not protect you from any consequences, nor the wrath of a justifiably enraged public.

    Rest assured, there is ALWAYS a Day Of Reckoning for nations who follow the path you’ve been ordered to take. The consequences will be dire and eternal.

    Disobedience to your chain of command, justified or not, is a fearful thing, whether one is a private or a general officer. Anyone who does so will face harsh discipline, by a system with swift and draconian punishments for those it deems guilty.

    And yet, your leaders, by abandoning their duty in this matter, have now forced every man and woman under their command to have to weigh and consider every order they are given, from here on out, and decide which orders are lawful, in furtherance of the oaths you and they took, and which ones may be or are unlawful, and command you to undertake things as horribly wrong and vile as anything perpetrated by soldiers serving the Nazi regime.

    Your command, by failing to acknowledge reality, has lied to you, and is trying to lie you into obedience to an entirely unlawful and illegitimate command, and left you in the difficult position of deciding when and whether to obey, and when and whether to disobey, any further orders.

    You alone will bear the consequences of your moral choices. And any immoral choices, should you make them.

    I thank Fate and a merciful God that in two separate terms of enlistment, I never served under such circumstances, but I pray for you the wisdom to know your duty, with every order you are given. And I pray that should you find yourself at the fork in the road between serving honorably, and “just following orders”, you will find it in yourselves to be honest, intelligent, courageous, just, and unselfish, and do the right thing, as you have done every day since you enlisted or were commissioned, and undertook the heavy burden of your oaths of service.

    It is supremely unfair and wrong that your commanders have laid such a heavy burden on every serving person’s shoulders, but such is the situation in which you now find yourselves. I would be derelict in the oath I took were I to fail to inform you that this is so.

    Choose Honor.

    Do what is right, always, even at the risk of disobedience. You must do no less.

    We, the People, do not ask this of you.

    The oaths you took DEMAND it, and your consciences compel it.

    The fate of the nation hangs on your every decision, both in the here and now, and in the hereafter.

    – Aesop, USMC

    Once A Marine, Always A Marine

    Yoho: Thus Darkness has conquered. Moral Courage is by far the rarest form of courage. By definition, those who have it form an Elite. If the Officers don’t have it, don’t bother to look for it among the common enlisted men WHO BY THEIR OATH must obey those above them in the chain of command. Thus the abdication at the top translates all the way down the line.

    And of course, note the cunning: The Judges didn’t want to look at the evidence because if they then rejected it or ruled for the validity of the election, they could be later found guilty of perjury if fortunes changed. Thus they protected themselves by refusing to look. That wouldn’t fly with me of course, but the corrupt cover for the corrupt and it was a good move in terms of being the loathsome creatures that they are.

    And the Generals are fine too because they were just following the Judges whose business it is to JUDGE such things. Not according to their Oath of course, but from the conventional pov, they’re covered. Men are weak in both mind and spirit after all, and the heart is corrupt above all things.

    Actually, everyone should take a minute to read it. It’s entitled “The Great American Media Mind Warp”, republished subsequently as “Lost in the Hologram”.

    https://www.joebageant.org/2007/08/17/the-great-ameri/

    Here’s a taste:

    Of course the entire American consumer shiteree is unsustainable. One day soon it will go bust, and the hologram will sell us the bust as a lifestyle. Renunciation of consumer goods and a monastic lifestyle will become a fad and then a major trend in America. Then it will be co-opted by the system and made expensive. The ozone hole will be so big we’ll all be pedaling teensy cars that come with iron lungs as standard equipment. Renunciation will become a status symbol. All the beautiful people will be doing it.

Trump is allegedly the Savior who will cast out the Democrat demons and restore American Christian virtue? The society is Nuts?

    The Masons believe that God (“The Grand Architect”) has a “Plan” (a “Blueprint”), but that it’s Man’s job to get to work and Build it since God won’t do the work himself.

    The Master on the plantation doesn’t do the work, which is the lowly, benighted slave’s job. God only provides the Blueprint. Viewed from this perspective, being lazy, doing nothing, and waiting for God to get it sorted out is a Big Sin. That’s why George Washington always became discomfited when he saw people (especially his slaves) sitting around and fucking off at Mt. Vernon.

    Upgrades to firmware, software, will simply be unavailable.
    And you will expire.

    But it was always your choice. Of course.
    First vaccines. Then implants. Then augmentation.

    Like most hardware, you won’t have access to the best, nor all of it.

    You will perish convinced in your nobility of remaining human.

    What other development can us shithole citizens look to?

    Once they FINISHED confiscating your guns and the local youth leader starts taking fancy on your daughters, there will be a civil war.

    So it is likely done last, after everything else.

    One way would be to replace all useful functions done by the deplorables with immigrants.

    Remember race is where you interbreed. For the upper caste, it make no difference to substitute the deplorables with the immigrants because they are not going to breed with either.

    Finally take the guns using the immigrant police force and gate them in some reservation with a lot of happy potions.

    Interesting to see what will happen.

      Slave/peasant/serf rebellions were usually put down in a semi genocidal manner by the REAL citizens.

      Isn’t it Janos who said something about criteria for who can vote?

      Yep. Education. Property etc.

      America was always touted as Rome by you guys. Guess it is true. The Citizens have spoken. Loud and clear. See CNN and Fox News for proof.

      I remember a story about the Dutch meeting the Japanese. The Tokugawa was aghast that they rebelled against their spanish lords. The Dutch said they had a mitigating factor. Japs said there is no such when rebelling against your lord.

      “Yes there is. We won”. The Japs agreed that is a good mitigating factor.

      Unfortunately the deplorables doesn’t have that mitigating factor.

      Ted was on to something.

      Early. Very early.

      Yet his execution, no pun intended, was very off.
      Very.

      He knew it was too late.

      Impotence manifests in aggression.

      “Kaczynski attributed many of society’s issues to leftists.[84] He defines leftists as “mainly socialists, collectivists, ‘politically correct’ types. He believes that feelings of inferiority and oversocialization primarily drive leftism,[82] and derides it as “one of the most widespread manifestations of the craziness of our world”.[86]

      Kaczynski adds that the type of movement he envisions must be anti-leftist and refrain from collaboration with leftists, as in his view “leftism is in the long run inconsistent with wild nature, with human freedom and with the elimination of modern technology”.[80] He also criticizes conservatives, describing them as fools who “whine about the decay of traditional values, yet they enthusiastically support technological progress and economic growth”.[86]

        Kaczynski correctly identified the problem, but succumbed to hopelessness given his methods. Advocating for the simple withdrawal of our patronage will render these commie/fascist forces and corporations bankrupt and extinct. And that’s what we need to do. We need to socially and financially cancel them.

            Again, you’d be surprised how easy it is to send these commie/fascist corporations into bankruptcy. They live from quarter to quarter. They are dependent on our good will. They are also dependent on us to actually run the machinery and day to day operations. Without our cooperation they cease to exist.

            The issue of money is purely one of confidence. When confidence in the gov mafia is non-existent, so is the value of their money.

    Our present predicted in 1995

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/national/longterm/unabomber/manifesto.summary.htm

    Friday, June 30, 1995; Page A10

    The document sent by UNABOM to The Washington Post is a densely written anarchist manifesto that calls for worldwide revolution against the effects of modern society’s “industrial-technological system.”

    That system, the manuscript argues, has robbed contemporary humans of their “autonomy” and their presumably empowering rapport with nature — defined by the document as “WILD nature: those aspects of the functioning of the earth and its living things that are independent of human management and free of human interference and control.”

    In a series of 232 numbered paragraphs, with accompanying notes, the document, titled “Industrial Society and Its Future,” argues that “the industrial revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race,” in part because, by definition, organized modern society “HAS to force people to behave in ways that are increasingly remote from the natural pattern of human behavior.”

    ******************************************************************************
    The document inveighs at length against what it calls one of the principal consequences of technological society — “leftism,” loosely defined as the attempt to “oversocialize” people by repressing their natural inclinations and “making them feel ashamed of behavior or speech that is contrary to society’s expectations,” often to the point at which a person “feels ashamed of HIMSELF.”
    ******************************************************************************

    Conservatives are equally vilified for their investment in the existing system, but the term “leftist” is used consistently to describe those in favor of extensive social control, which is said to cause “a whole spectrum of related traits: low self-esteem, feelings of powerlessness, depressive tendencies, defeatism, guilt, self-hatred, etc.”

    In contrast, the document argues in favor of what it calls the human “need (probably based in biology) for something that we will call the power process,” which is made up of “goal, effort and attainment of goal,” as well as an ensuing sense of “autonomy.”

    The manifesto suggests that the “power process” is most purely and conspicuously realized in primitive societies in which basic daily survival needs (“real goals”) must be met by individual work — obtaining food, building shelter and the like.

    In contrast, modern science and technology are portrayed as mere “surrogate activities” of a culture in which “real goals” are increasingly unnecessary — that is, “artificial goals that people set up for themselves merely in order to have some goal to work toward.” Because these activities purportedly further the cause of social control of human beings — as, for example, through the use of psychoactive drugs or surveillance devices, “The only way out is to dispense with the industrial-technological system altogether.” (In an accompanying letter, the author or authors state that “as for people who wilfully and knowingly promote economic growth and technical progress, in our eyes they are criminals, and if they get blown up they deserve it.”)

    In general, the manifesto appears to favor a return to a state of human society similar to that of the “noble savage” envisioned by 18th century social theoreticians.”

    • Yohannon January 19, 2021 at 1:02 am #

      There is something there. Kim loved his work and got his later writings too I believe – recently published.

      Coming at it from a completely different angle – that of leisure or Homo Ludens, Man the Player: Technological society will justify itself when it attains the amount of leisure that the hunter gatherers had. Instead of freeing man, many are working more and more just to survive. And having to compete for limited jobs with new batches of desperate 3rd Worlders is seen as the epitome of virtue by “conservatives”.

      At its best, technology offers man security, but at the price of autonomy as Uncle Ted says. Can he have both? Not easily, but isn’t it a goal worth working towards somehow?

      Long ago William James recognized at least one aspect of the problem and called for the MEOW or Moral Equivalent of War since too much leisure could be destructive. But of course for most people, that’s not the problem as I said before. Instead they have now little leisure, no autonomy, and a decreasing level of security. The worst of all possible worlds!

      • Yohannon January 19, 2021 at 1:05 am #

        The Bushmen of the Kalahari, pushed into the desert by the incoming Negroes, worked some 16 hours per week. Similar numbers have been found in other areas for hunter gatherers. Maybe some places were more severe (deserts vary tremendously) and would need greater labor. And of course if things got bad, such people would starve. But that’s true for the harder working agriculturalists as well, at least up until recent times.

        Trip and the Permaculturalists echo some of this kind of thinking.

    Yeltsin did his best holding Russia from being ransacked, divided and destroyed by acting like the whole country is for sale. He handpicked Putin. Such is the path of racial survival. You can’t understand it because it comes from being a real race with real culture, not being a bland “white”.

    I love President Trump and will miss him. Everyone was against him in every place and at every level and yet he was able to still do many good things for our country. And what exquisite justice are the optics of his departure. The alleged party of “sacred democracy” and “hallowed halls” is installing its virtual puppet candidate behind a militarized zone that would make North Korea blush. All the while openly calling for the silencing and ethnic cleansing of its opposition. Yes, DJT has exposed them forever for the hypocritical, illegitmate, totalitarian criminals they all are. I am praying that President Trump will pardon Julian Assange.

      Sadly, no pardon. Cocaine Mitch threatened Trump. Told him he’d find enough Republican votes for the impeachment to ensure a conviction, which would be inevitably followed by a majority vote to permanently bar Trump from any public office again.

      So that’s the bad news.

      The good news is that Trump’s action in not issuing the pardon implies that he is still open to the idea of running for re-election in 2024.

The DNC, all of the anti-Trump RINOS and all mainstream news outlets must be sued for incitement to violence and hate speech and we need to seek trillions in relief for the damage they have done to millions of lives.

        I think this is correct. People are already self-sorting for the coming Civil War 2. Reds bailing outta the Blue States as fast as they can. Red States doing what they can to encourage Blues to leave for Cali or NY or some other socialist republic. Blues migrating to Big Cities and leaving rural areas. Reds eschewing big cities like the Black Plague.

        Inevitably, this means the political situation polarizes even more. “Electing” (ha-ha) Biden did not, and will not, “make it stop.”

        To the contrary, the installation of our new emperor just threw the polarization trend into overdrive.

        Dems, of course, are natural revolutionaries and are already radicalized and ready to throw down. The GOP leadership, as usual, has fled for the tall grass hoping no one notices the yellow stain spreading out from their groin areas and running down their legs. All they care about is their stock portfolios.

        For this reason, America First Patriot Nationalists will end up bolting from the GOP. Perhaps taking over the old Constitution Party, the former plaything of old time conservative activist Howard Phillips, or perhaps forming a new MAGA Party with Trump’s money and support? We shall see.

    “On DAY 1 shut down your coal, petroleum and coal industries. Tell your people you’re cooling off the climate and not too worry, windmills are on the way.

    We’re building the windmills here in Beijing, will ship them to you as soon as they’re done.”

    Your friend,

    Xi Jingping

    Last full day for citizen trump.

    The national nightmare is over.

    The plan was a grift like most everything on the con side of the aisle.

    You lost the battle of Bowling Green.

    Remember what happen after Jade Helm. You have been warned.

    • BackRowHeckler January 19, 2021 at 12:48 pm #

      Sure, Bedpan Biden is a Wakeup.

    • SoftStarLight January 19, 2021 at 1:17 pm #

      Yes! You are illegitimate and fraudulent and therefore can only resort to violence and coercion. You are bankrupt at all levels. Wahoo yay!

    • rocket8 January 19, 2021 at 3:28 pm #

      He should be taken into custody when he lands in Florida tomorrow . Charged with inciting a riot. Have him be charged then let him post bail. Just like any of us if we did what he did with that crowd.

      • SoftStarLight January 19, 2021 at 4:58 pm #

        Yes and Kamala Harris and Joe then also need to be arrested for not only inciting riots but for bailing out rioters and publicly announcing their support for riots on TV.

        @rocket8

        Dream on, bozo. Right now, I reckon the Donald is relaxing and enjoying a tasty Big Mac and fries at Mar-A-Lago while plotting his return to power.

        (Heh, heh, heh…)

        He knows that merely threatening to run again will be enough to drive perhaps half a million or more of the TDS afflicted snowflakes like yourself into the mental institutions begging for a rubber room. LOL….

        Honestly, I can’t wait to see how this plays out.

        Not since Napoleon was exiled to Elba has the world been so obsessed to know what the great man might do next.

  78. rube-i-con January 19, 2021 at 12:14 pm #

    so an 80-yr old from scranton, PA appoints a mentally ill ‘transwoman’ as HHS? lol

    yes i believe joe really has come around and seen the light

    note to deranged leftists: i don~t care if a guy wants to claim to be a woman, more power to him, but to appoint that person as guardian over mental health issues…..lol

    • scrooge January 19, 2021 at 12:24 pm #

      Your right, my pillow guy would have been a much better choice.

      • rube-i-con January 19, 2021 at 1:49 pm #

        try to answer the question and not squirm out of reality

        we know you leftists are deceitful by nature

    • Yohannon January 19, 2021 at 12:27 pm #

      I saw that a minute ago and thought it was a joke. Irony is dead. The Left killed it.

      The Trans put people sick with Covid in nursing homes, but pulled her own mother out before she did it.

  79. Yohannon January 19, 2021 at 12:30 pm #

    The Biden people don’t trust the National Guard and Secret Service so they have hired private security for the inauguration. He doesn’t trust the American people. The guilty are always full of fear.

    Lenin (who wasn’t Russian – look at his picture) had Chinese security guards.

    • scrooge January 19, 2021 at 12:35 pm #

      We may have killed irony, but we won the election.

      • Yohannon January 19, 2021 at 12:56 pm #

        You also killed tens of millions of the Russian people. Gonna try that here too?

        • scrooge January 19, 2021 at 1:22 pm #

          You killed 6 million jews goyboy. And we still won the election.

          • Yohannon January 19, 2021 at 2:01 pm #

            You killed over a hundred million people in the 20th Century. You all (globalists) bid fair to exceed that by far in the 21st.

      • SoftStarLight January 19, 2021 at 1:18 pm #

        You mean you successfully stole the election. TFTFY

        • scrooge January 19, 2021 at 1:31 pm #

          If that’s what it takes for you to sleep at night.

          Sure. We pulled it off.

          You lost even Billy Barr chief toadie wasn’t willing to fight it.

          Trumps packed supreme court wouldn’t touch it.

          Your tender feelings are not evidence.

          Suck it up cupcake. You need a script from Uncle Don and little eric for Biden derangement syndrome pills.

          • rube-i-con January 19, 2021 at 1:47 pm #

            80 million unsolicited ballots and little to no signature verification speak for themselves

            and, of course, no voter ID in numerous instances

            can a committed leftist ever admit that this invalidates any idea of a fair election?

            being deceitful by nature, only if they lose

          • Captain Fudge January 19, 2021 at 2:08 pm #

            So, such compelling evidence should have caused at least a few of those 60 judges to proceed.

            But of course none of them did. Now, why is that I wonder?

          • SoftStarLight January 19, 2021 at 4:55 pm #

            No judge has looked at the evidence. All of the cases were dismissed on procedural technicalities. Plus Trump himself never had 60 cases. Most likely the judges were threatened with harm or paid off which as you know is the typical run of the mill behind the scenes business in our “government”.

        • Night Owl January 19, 2021 at 4:35 pm #

          My favorite moment was the pulling of the suitcase of ballets out from under the table, once they sent the other pollsters home.

          That has to be one of the most comical moments in political history.

          • Night Owl January 19, 2021 at 4:35 pm #

            ballots.

          • SoftStarLight January 19, 2021 at 4:56 pm #

            And just imagine how many other places that was done but perhaps not caught on camera or perhaps the evidence was simply taken by the FBI and thrown out.

          • Night Owl January 19, 2021 at 5:15 pm #

            The FBI was caught shredding ballots in Georgia.

          • Redneck Liberal January 20, 2021 at 4:28 pm #

            ‘The FBI was caught shredding ballots in Georgia.’

            Hahahaa….Who’s dealing in tinfoilery?

      • rube-i-con January 19, 2021 at 1:55 pm #

        yes, and barry bonds is the home run king

        lol

    • MaryV January 20, 2021 at 8:05 pm #

      An ABC reporter took a video from Biden’s motorcade, and most of the soldiers turned their back to him.

      • Redneck Liberal January 22, 2021 at 3:02 am #

        Wooooo….evidence of what, exactly?

  80. JohnAZ January 19, 2021 at 1:20 pm #

    As Trump leaves on Marine 1 tomorrow, we will be watching the departure of the last hope for holding off the Communist takeover.

    As we watch Biden take the oath, we will be witnessing the biggest lie in US history.

    “Defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC”

    Uh huh!

    • Captain Fudge January 19, 2021 at 1:52 pm #

      Donald J Trump and the Pillow Guy – the last hope of democracy.

      Coming to a theater near you….

      • rube-i-con January 19, 2021 at 1:54 pm #

        you mean two extremely successful businessmen worth billions who created the lowest ever unemployment

        leftists always need to ridicule, since they have no defensible facts upon which to stand

        • Captain Fudge January 19, 2021 at 2:02 pm #

          They are blowing up the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino – a fitting tribute to its scam-artist namesake.

          So long Don-Don. Say hello to the SDNY, will ‘ya?

    Conversation overheard today:

    Xi Jingping “Joe, have you gotten rid of the orange fool yet?”

    JB – “One more day”

    Xi Jingping – “You know what that dumb bastard did last time he was here?”

    JB – “This should be good”

    Xi Jingping “The moron wanted two choice from Column A. I don’t even get two choices from Column A!”

    JB – “Nobody gets two choices from Column A – everyone knows this”

    Xi Jingping – “Promise me no more clowns running America gain, ok?”

    JB – “We have plans to make sure it never happens again”

    Xi Jingping – “Joe, you good guy – you come here I make sure you have 2 choices from Column A”

    JB – “Damn straight.

  82. Captain Fudge January 19, 2021 at 1:57 pm #

    No Joy in Trumpville today. Although the real hard cases still hold out for a deus ex machina – what would that look like? the military has said it has no role in elections. Dear Leader is standing for a disgraceful 2nd Impeachment, etc. etc…..

    Nope – we stole the election from y’all. Better luck next time. Let a smile be your umbrella. 😉

        Ok great! Then if nobody cares 22 states will be leaving the Union tomorrow. Oh and none of your laws matter either since they are arbitrary and not based on anything mutually upheld.

        • messianicdruid January 19, 2021 at 10:19 pm #

    It looks like the Freak Show is reaching into the upper levels of the Federal Government, with a Tranny, a Dr Levine, appointed as an asst. Director of HHS. He looks like Wierd Al, remember him? Dude grows his hair our, throws on a dress, and all of a sudden he’s a woman. It’s all about respect, goddamit.Refer to this distinguished Doctor as a she or else he’ll beat the sh#t out of you, and it looks like he can do it to LoL.
