      You have to wonder what took Bobby Kennedy, Jr. so long to recognize that the Democratic Party was a home that he had long ago been turned out of, like a dog that has peed on the carpet too many times. At the end of last week, Mr. Kennedy intimated that he might run for president on an independent line. If he manages to get that line on the state ballots — and you can easily imagine New York and California trying to thwart him — it will change all the current calculations about the 2024 election.

      As of right now, the Party of Chaos is living up to its name. They continue to present an obviously false and ridiculous consensus among themselves that “Joe Biden” is running for reelection. In fact, “the Big Guy” is about to get run through a wringer of the most abject public disgrace as his already-well-known crimes of bribery and treason get conscientiously laid out for all to see with cold and implacable decorum. Even the mind-fucked spawn of the Ivy League, toiling away on their CIA-owned newspapers and cable news networks, might find themselves forced to spin their narrative in a new direction.

     “Joe Biden” is now a monumental embarrassment and a liability to our country, let alone to the degenerate party that owns him. Sub rosa efforts must be in motion to persuade him to resign before the impeachment inquiry spotlights all those telltale bank records, but they will fail to overcome his demented pride. He’ll ride this thing out to the bitter end, when he can use the last tool at his disposal to officially pardon everyone involved in his family’s racketeering operation. The longer the party pretends to support him, the closer the party itself skates toward self-destruction. Also consider: if allowed to play out, the impeachment inquiry will implicate the DOJ and the FBI in obstruction of justice — exposing many Deep State blob players to danger of prosecution.

       Gov Gavin Newsom dangles himself above the fray as the deus ex machina who can touch down in DC and make all the Democrat’s problems go away. Such an attractive fellow! Great teeth and hair! Tall as a sequoia! And such a smooth talker! The woked-up suburban ladies who comprise the party’s main voting bloc grow moist in anticipation of Gov. Newsome landing on-stage like a demigod out of a Mozart opera. But how do you think he’ll make out in an election when the airwaves are filled with oppo ads showing his toothy and hairy visage inset against scenes of homeless junkies and looting flash mobs? Try blaming that on climate change. What else does he stand for? Censorship? Forced vaccinations? Child sex mutilations? Open borders? News-flash: these are increasingly unpopular, except among an easily-identified depraved elite.

      Indeed, the whole Left-Right demon-driven psychodrama is proving impossible to live in as it throbs and pulsates toward something like civil war. And it has obscured the truly potent idea that the nation might actually be capable of solving its problems by facing up to them and changing how we act. That potent idea might be what voters will see in Bobby Kennedy if he can get their attention. Mr. Kennedy would dismantle the heinous partnerships between private corporations and the US government that loosed the Covid-19 op on the world and asset-strips the middle-class. He favors closing the border and a reevalution of immigration policy. He aims to negotiate an end to the ignoble Ukraine war project. He’s determined to disassemble the security state apparatus that’s destroying the US Constitution and citizens natural rights with it.

     Mr. Kennedy says he can bring divided Americans together on these dire matters. It’s conceivable that his message might go over with enough rancor-weary voters to pull off a tour-de-force plurality in a three-way race, where nobody wins enough electoral votes to settle the contest, which then moves to the House, like in the old days of Jefferson and Burr. The rest is election mechanics, some of it very sinister when you consider all the election-rigging booby-traps already in-place such as mass mail-in ballot harvesting, no voter ID requirements, and the still-mysterious hookups of vote-counting machines to the Internet. But, at least, Mr. Kennedy running on an independent line will be a hard whap upside the Democratic Party’s thick skull, maybe even a death-blow to the party. They made a big mistake trying to un-person him. He’s on a hero’s journey at a moment in history when America dearly needs a hero.

    “He’s on a hero’s journey at a moment in history when America dearly needs one.”

    EXACTLY!

    • Lawfish October 2, 2023 at 9:46 am #

      He would certainly get my vote. Unfortunately, the CIA will probably take him out if he becomes a real threat.

      • Disaffected October 2, 2023 at 9:53 am #

        I won’t say that he’s a CIA plant, but I’m sure they’re carving out some space for him, a la Bernie Sanders, to take the steam out of the political opposition to business as usual. They’ll give him some rope through next spring or possibly early summer before finally springing whatever trap they’ve got in store for him. And just like that, it will be all over again. All geared for maximum entertainment value.

        • Alfred October 2, 2023 at 10:14 am #

          If he’s not on the ballot my vote goes to Trump. Maybe that factors in on a statistically significant scale, IDK. He’s the only candidate that has actual skin in this game.

          He’s a real life Inigo Montoya. As much as anyone of us can gauge a candidates character or sincerity, he seems like the real thing, and he aligns with all my hot button issues.

            I believe Desantis also supports your NO’s above and has proven to make it happen at least in his state of Florida. I will vote for whoever the GOP candidate is because, as usual, they will be the lesser of evils.

          • hmuller October 2, 2023 at 10:27 am #

            Kennedy needs to see daylight on the man-made global warming fraud. He seems smart enough to grasp that carbon dioxide is not a poisonous gas and carbon credits are a scheme for the Elite to ring in a “hunger games” world.

          • BackRowHeckler October 2, 2023 at 10:56 am #

            Muller

            Kennedy is an environmental lawyer, but he’s more about clean water than anything else. He seems to be more of a traditional environmentalist in the strain of Teddy Roosevelt than he is some looney Climate Crank who who wants to exterminate 5/8s of the human population, ban fossil fuels, or immediately shut down existing baseload power stations. I’ve seen him speak twice at ‘Save LI Sound’ events & that’s the impression that I get.

          • Beryl of Oyl October 2, 2023 at 11:15 am #

            BRH I still need him to get off that climate change bunk. I don’t want my choices to be among two men with different delusions and a corrupt senile elderly pervert.

          • Cankerpuss October 2, 2023 at 2:00 pm #

            But he believes that carbon dioxide, a gas that plans absorb and use to photosynthesize sugars which creates a bi-product of oxygen is harmful to our planet. Carbon, an element that nearly every living thing on this plant is made out of.

            Until he gets past this nonsense I will continue to be skeptical.

            He won’t win anyway. The cheat is big time and the PTB and the wimpy opposition have nothing to stop the cheat. People are too polarized to come together. Our votes do not matter. Look locally to vote changes. The Federal is lost.

        • Beryl of Oyl October 2, 2023 at 10:18 am #

      There is a good chance he RFK Jr will get my vote. His stance on the COVID mRNA injections goes as long way with me.

      There is some chance RFK Jr may not be able to be on the ballot on all 50 states.

      There is some chance that Trump will not be on the ballot in all 50 states during the primary votes.

      How will the public react to those two potential developments?

      But let’s assume for a moment that RFK Jr wins the electoral college in 3-way race.

      Now what? Look at the extremes the uniparty will go to to keep funding this corrupt, illegal, immoral war in the Ukraine which the US instigated. Multiply by 10x. That’s what RFK will have to deal with.

      In any case, we are moving toward a perfect $hit storm, the likes of which Americans have never seen. And unlike the people who lived in the US in the 1930s, today’s Americans are not fit (mentally, physically, family-wise) enough to handle what is coming. America and most Americans are living way beyond what they can support…

      To paraphrase some one else, “capitalism’s party trick of creating more and more debt and never paying it” may have run its course.

      The always fragile global trading arrangements we took for granted have been broken. BRICS may have “only” x% of the world’s GDP, but with the new members coming, BRICS will have about half the world’s wheat and rice, and 80% of the world’s oil.

      In the meantime, America and the West are busy promoting LGBT, equity, and radical “green” policies. Rich people have the luxury of wasting their time and efforts on frivolous (not to mention WRONG) causes. But we aren’t rich any more… ya know.

       
      I could go on and on…

      • NickelthroweR October 2, 2023 at 10:42 am #

        It isn’t “capitalism” that borrows endless amounts of money to never pay back but government at all levels and the banks.

        As someone who manufactures and does so here in the USA, I can tell you that my capitalist outfit has had to repay every penny it has ever borrowed.

        Unfettered capitalism is the only thing that will save us.

        • Socrates-Detroit October 2, 2023 at 10:58 am #

          You are correct. Perhaps I should have said “Our FIAT MONEY, cartel capitalist system”.

          Honest capitalism, with some government oversight to prevent monopolies, is best.

          • NickelthroweR October 2, 2023 at 11:34 am #

            You can’t have a monopoly without government. Only the power of big government can promote and protect a monopoly.

          • Paula D October 2, 2023 at 12:08 pm #

            Tell that to John D. Rockefeller or Andrew Carnegie, Nickel.

        • Paula D October 2, 2023 at 12:07 pm #

          You can’t have capitalism without money. You have to have a market system and a way to trade goods.

          Capitalism always collapses when the limits of the market are reached. That is why they invented deficit spending.

          Unfettered capitalism in the 1800s collapsed into severe depressions about every 20 years.

        • Jarek October 2, 2023 at 12:21 pm #

          It’s not Capitalism per se, but late stage Corporate Capitalism. Your mid-stage grows into this.

          Modern industrial Capitalism was horrific in its early stages (child labor, etc) and horrific in its end stages. And its good mid-stage naturally develops into horror again.

          Thus it can’t be called good in and of itself. As Erdogan said of Democracy, It’s a bus. You get off at your stop.

          We should have stopped at mid-20th century Capitalism with strong unions and a Government oversight.

        • elysianfield October 2, 2023 at 12:55 pm #

          “Unfettered capitalism”

          Nickel,

          What we currently HAVE is “late stage capitalism”…samo/samo….

          …How do you like it NOW, Gentlemen?

          We need millions and millions of wage slaves…open the borders!!!

          • Jarek October 2, 2023 at 1:29 pm #

            Thank you for your moment of sanity. As the Joker said in the movie, The Watchmen: What happened to the American Dream? This is it. You got it.

        • Cankerpuss October 2, 2023 at 2:03 pm #

          I don’t know about that Nickel. Privately held debts are somewhere between 36 trillion and 72 trillion. Truth is, nobody knows the exact number other than that it is in multiple trillions.

        But, at least, Mr. Kennedy running on an independent line will be a hard whap upside the Democratic Party’s thick skull, maybe even a death-blow to the party. They made a big mistake trying to un-person him. He’s on a hero’s journey at a moment in history when America dearly needs a hero.

        Maybe I’ve become too cynical. It often happens with increasing age. But I just can’t visualize BobJune as a deus ex machina or traveling heroic archetype.

        Good on him for tackling the Covid narrative mind virus. For that he richly deserves our thanks. But scratch a Kennedy and you get a retrograde liberal.

        One example: while I don’t hang onto his every word, my understanding of his position on the ultimate, life-or-death issue for America — the Biden-sponsored “immigration” invasion — is that he’s against illegal immigration. Well, what politician isn’t? Who’s going to (formally) support illegal immigration?

        But the explosive device buried in that is, the illegal migrant can be made into a legal migrant with no sweat by a show of hands in Congress and a signature. Hell, I wouldn’t put it past the deep state to have the presidential simulation try it by executive order.

        If the ghost-president were to go that route, no doubt RobJune would respond with some verbal outrage for marketing his brand. But it’s hard to imagine him stepping out of his warm cocoon of welcoming “new Americans” by the country-full to replace the old Americans. Liberals have form for that sort of thing.

      • abbybwood October 2, 2023 at 9:17 pm #

        Bobby might run as a Libertarian. That would give him the ballot access he needs.

    • Uncle Bob October 2, 2023 at 10:34 am #

      I can’t call anyone a hero when he demands capital punishment for people who don’t follow the elites’ line regarding the weather –oops, I mean “climate change.” If anything, RFK2 is just another, albeit better, stooge of the weather-alatmed WEF et al, who see the “crisis” of too many people living on the coast and extended growing seasons as a mechanism to gain control over everything, as many of us have said here for a long time. Bottom line, there is no heroic figure waiting in the wings because we’re too stupid and wicked of a people to get a genuine hero; instead, we get a bunch of deeply-flawed narcissists who think they’re messiahs come to deliver us from whatever “evil” they oppose (the weather, student loan debt, high taxes, etc.). Yay us!

      • BackRowHeckler October 2, 2023 at 10:59 am #

        I think RFK has come around a little bit on that, Uncle Bob. He’s said some crazy stuff, and done some crazy things, but who hasn’t?

        • Beryl of Oyl October 2, 2023 at 11:17 am #

          He has walked it back somewhat.

        • elysianfield October 2, 2023 at 1:01 pm #

          “Come around a little bit”?

          BRH,
          Yeah…I bet we all wish we could go back in time and “unsay” some embarrassing comment.

          …Oh yeah, and kill Hitler, also….

      • Paula D October 2, 2023 at 12:10 pm #

        He didn’t call for the death penalty for climate deniers.

        He called for the Koch brothers to be put in the Hague for their crimes against the environment.

        That was clearly hyperbole, because the Hague is not used to imprison ordinary criminals.

        Quit spreading bullshit equal to the “Trump said to drink bleach” line of the Blob.

        • RUfuckinKidding? October 2, 2023 at 8:42 pm #

          Yeah, quit that lying!

          Trump asked if it (the bleach) could be injected “…somehow…”

          • Ron Anselmo October 3, 2023 at 1:56 am #

            Hydrogen peroxide is a chemical product made up of hydrogen and oxygen (H2O2).

            Hydrogen peroxide is also an oxidizing disinfectant that is capable of killing bacteria, viruses, mold, fungi and more.

            Although not commonly referred to as “bleach” hydrogen peroxide is one of the most common bleaching agents.

            Hydrogen peroxide in food grade diluted form is often used internally, by drinking, for medical reasons.

            It can also be vaporized in a nebulizer and inhaled as an aerosol for respiratory treatment of viruses.

            So, yes, “bleach” would have been effective, as was Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine.

            Imnotfukinkidding. Smarten up.

          • Chris Case October 3, 2023 at 5:53 am #

            What Trump was referring to was chlorine dioxide, a well-documented killer of pathogens, used by most water purification plants, and effective in tiny amounts internally against viruses, bacteria, parasites, etc. In massive amounts it is used to bleach wood pulp, as it functions by oxidising, as does anything called a bleach, and as does the immune system. This had been explained to him by people who promote its use, but he blundered in calling it bleach, allowing ther drug companies to claim he was talking about drinking Clorox. Many clinical trials have proven its efficacy against many pathogens, but it is extremely cheap and a threat to many expensive and less effective commercial medicines. It is unpatentable, as one cannot patent a single chemicla.

          • Paula D October 3, 2023 at 11:33 am #

            He didn’t say ”bleach” at all. He was asking about UV light, which the head of some agency had JUST said killed the virus.

            Trump asked if it could be used internally, which WAS being done at Cedars Sanai in LA (an ad for which was passed around the internet until being scrubbed by YouTube).

            The media turned the lie into such a strong belief among the faithful that people repeat it to this day.

            That is because they didn’t want people to know the virus was killed in less than a minute by sunlight.

            How can you keep people locked up inside if they know that the sun is protecting them from the Scary Virus?

            What if people go outside and raise their Vitamin D levels, thereby lessening the effects of the virus?

            Better to tell a Big Lie about Trump, instead.

      With all due respect James, when I look at Kennedy’s history, I don’t see a hero, only a spoiler. That’s enough for me.

    • River October 2, 2023 at 1:11 pm #

      Yes, he is on a hero’s journey, and this is his time to lead!

      Actions speak louder than words, and RFK Jr has a proven record of holding his ground against the corrupt elite and working for the good of all. In addition, he authentically understands the law, the Constitution, and how to analyze scientific/medical studies – required traits in these times.

      You have my vote, Mr. Kennedy!

    • RUfuckinKidding? October 2, 2023 at 8:40 pm #

      Unfortunately, RFK Jr. is NOT the hero you’re all hoping (against hope) for.

      He’s a confused ex-addict who denies what he has said in the past (even when it’s on videotape) and, as far as I can tell, has no real plan or agenda.

      He has come from ‘privilege’ and lacks the common touch entirely. What does he see here? An opportunity to ‘make a mark’? To pursue his father’s legacy of justice & truth? Not sure how he can pull off either of these things.

      As to his electorate appeal, it may well pull some independents, may well pull some Dems from Biden, but equally, he may well pull a similar amount of support from Trump (assuming he actually gets to run). In the end, I think it will be a wash…make little difference to the final result, which will NOT be Trump.

      • messianicdruid October 3, 2023 at 6:46 am #

        I think it will be Trump. Massive free press, underdog picked on by wackos for years. He is highly qualified to manage a bankrupt corporation and negotiate the best outcome of a failed business model. And he’s not Biden [ go back to sleep patriots ].

        After a few years of guerrilla warfare with imported mercenaries we will be ready for world war three [ christian – so-called against muslims-so-called ] and after we have only electronic money to serve as legal tender [ with lots and lots of debt-forgiveness ] the economy will pop.

    • UN OUT OF USA October 3, 2023 at 10:49 am #

      LOL. NOT “EXACTLY”. Kennedy is a radical climate change supporter as well as being anti-2nd amendment. His only centrist stance is being anti-covid vaxx but that’s because he has been anti-anything vaxx for many years. He is NOT going to save America. He is as loony as all the other woke assholes ruining our country.

  2. RaymondR October 2, 2023 at 9:38 am #

    RFK Jr is probably the best choice the American voters could make next year. However, his election would only be the start of a long and painful process of reform. The lesson of Trump’s presidency shows the difficulty of effective reform

    • Paula D October 2, 2023 at 12:11 pm #

        Since they accidentally put a male-impersonating female on the throne of St. Peter back in the middle ages, the Church is quite sensitive to that, and requires a thorough examination of any newly elected pontiff’s male parts by members of the College of Cardinals. I don’t know if there are constitutional groounds to bar a cross dresser from serving as president.

        • hmuller October 2, 2023 at 10:46 am #

          Can a cross dresser become President? It was the one obstacle keeping J Edgar Hoover from his dream.

          • canuk October 3, 2023 at 9:55 am #

            A read an article about Hoover and his cross dressing and homosexuality.

            Apparently, the Italian mafia knew all about Hoover’s habits from 1942 onwards and they kept them over his head.

            Hoover never did go after the Mob and told Booby Kennedy in the early 60’s when he was DOJ chief that is ideas were, “exaggerated”.

        There appear to be many that believe our votes actually matter. I see our elections in this light.

        On the right we have a steaming pile of horse shit with stink and flies surrounding it shouting “vote for me and I’ll fix everything.”

        On the left we have a steaming pile of cow shit with stink and flies surrounding it shouting “vote for me and I’ll fix everything.”

        We as voters approach the booth and we look at the two piles of shit and both offend us. So, we hover our noses over the horse shit and take a big sniff. We then hover our noses over the cow shit and take a big sniff. We then cast our votes for the pile of shit that has the least offensive odor.

        Unfortunately, we are still voting for a big pile of shit one way or another. Hence the troubles we are facing. Republicans = SHIT. Democrats = SHIT.

        Yet we still continue to vote for shit. When will we learn the two party system is actually a uniparty and do something different for once. DUH!

    Deus ex Machina

    we can mend our bodies
    soothe our souls
    calm our minds
    and brave our hearts

    but can we erase the tread marks
    that so many machines imprint across our days
    of endless tracks that wander through our ways
    with no discernible end in sight

    can we humanize the spirit within us
    as it sits inside a ticking technology
    framed in steel and metered suspensions
    responding only to a fingerprint on an alarming red button

    can we drive out the devilish need
    to keep on trying one more time
    to go faster or higher
    or record a superior number

    our situation may require divine intervention
    to pull our gods and goddesses
    from the digital depths and electrical ploys
    that trap us in their hidden dimensions

    keep your head to the sky
    the best you can
    and a watchful eye
    for a helping hand from above

    I am cynical, and pessimistic. I do not think Kennedy could do any more than Trump did, and the Swamp will swallow him whole. The Country, as a whole, has not been hurt enough yet. Therefore, I am afraid things will not change in any meaningful way. Let face it, half the country is still voting for Democrats – as poop floods the streets of Blue Cities.

    Maybe a Super-Great Depression will provide the impetus, or a big meteor. Maybe Yellowstone cooking off.

    But sometimes, for some people, there is no “rock bottom.” Witness, the winos sleeping in the streets, or the human planks on crank.

    Best option now is to stay informed, and be prepared for when SHTF.

      I live in the southeast and our area is filled with refugees who have fled the blue states and blue cities. Large apartment complexes and townhouse units are sprouting up all over the place like mushrooms after a rainy period.

      My town is now experiencing gridlocked traffic problems because too many people are here and we don’t have the roads to accomodate them. Housing is unaffordable for many people and everyone is whining about that issue. I’ve been riding my bicycle at times now not for excercise or saving fuel money but just to be able to get where I wish to go. I get a great feeling of smug satisfaction while weaving in and out of stopped/gridlocked traffic and flying past all the “cagers” while riding my bike on the sidewalk. Let ’em sit there like bugs stuck on flypaper and listening to the radio while filling their breathing air with exhaust fumes.

      all that money sent to Ukraine will end up being a waste

      No. It does not go like that. Rather, it goes like this:

      Biden says, “Give Ukraine $24B.”
      Congress says, “Done!”
      Treasury says to Fed, “Another $24B, please.”
      Fed giggles (while maniacally rubbing its hands together).
      Fed says, “Done!”
      MIC says, “Over here!”
      Treasury says, “Done!”
      MIC then pockets the $24B and sends its over-priced clear-out old inventory (shipped on yet different tax dollars) to Ukraine.
      Bob’s your uncle.

      The money is not “gone” or “wasted” or “left the country.” Actually, it never leaves DC the whole time.

      • Rooftop Observer October 2, 2023 at 10:12 pm #

        OG – that sums it all up most succinctly. The ‘money’ ‘spent’ on Ukraine is raised (‘cut new paper’) in the US and spent, mostly, in the US on the US-made armaments which are actually NOT all given to Ukraine – some are under a lend-lease style program (signed in 2022), so it’s far from ‘wasted’.

        The other argument is about how large the “debt” is, right?

        This is also badly misstated: the current favored number for USGDP is $25.6 trillion, meaning that at $36T, the debt-to-GDP ratio is 1:1.38 (or approaching it).

        This $10T deficit difference is NOT a good look, for sure, but the current administration’s economic expansion will take care of it within just a few more wars (! I mean ‘years’).

    I wouldn’t count RFKJr out so quickly. There are a lot of people who would fight the CIA if it attempts to harm another Kennedy. And more are coming as the reality of the bio-weapon, so-called “vaccine,” hits more and more Americans. The US federal government has been taken over, long ago actually, in Rockefeller’s quest for his New World Order. The best thing Americans can do is to get rid of the federal government and start over with a new Constitutional Convention. Barring that, federal government reform-ation is next best.

    • Socrates-Detroit October 2, 2023 at 10:31 am #

      A Constitutional Convention. Many “conservatives” seem to want that. I don’t understand why. To me, sounds like an opportunity for the “woke” to legitimize their anarcho-tyranny by shredding the current Constitution. Who do you think will attend that convention? Readers of “Chronicles” and “The American Conservative” exclusively. What about the other 80%?

      Who/how will fight the CIA?

      The Federal Government “defense” and “intelligence” communities have MANY people who privately support and actually vote for Rand Paul, or Ron Paul, or Trump, and who have recited to me why, better than I can. But these people want their bloated paychecks from the military and/or civil service, and the pensions. And the lucrative private sector opportunities.

      THESE people help make the security state possible–even though they don’t agree with it. Not to mention the more populous “true believers” in the security state, who do agree with it.

      Are these the folks who will “fight the CIA”? Or are people going to take to the streets, and the public pressure will lead to change?

      This space reaches maybe 1% of society. The bulk of it is “informed” (aka, MOLDED) by the mainstream media.

      As for the killer vaccine, a friend recently lost her cousin, who suddenly developed cancer and was gone very quickly, an otherwise healthy female nurse who was working until diagnosed, for over 50 years.

      Nurse. Working. Vaccine requirement. And my friend said, “perhaps something in the hospital over the decades caused it”. You think? How about those shots that were mandated for hospital employees? HELLO! Too many people just can’t see. It’s not in the MSM news that more people are dying, so people don’t see it.

      I agree totally, the Rockefeller/NWO subverted the US government decades ago. Now they outright run it and don’t even pretend to not be. The pandemic lockdowns and shots; the war in Ukraine; the lawfare against Trump; denying RFK Jr Secret Service protection; not investigating Biden’s relationships with foreign goverments.

      Still, I’m rooting for RFK. Because we have to have hope that things will improve.

        S-D – there was a comment on here a few months ago, I can’t remember by whom, and I apologize out of embarrassment, because it struck me as one of the simplest, but maybe one of the most profound ever.

        Roughly, they said that anything designed to give us “hope” should immediately be recognized as bullshit. Truer words were never spoken.

        My reply was that it was an ingenious “hope litmus test”. As regards RFK, Jr. being elected, it holds – doesn’t pass the litmus test. Hoping that things would or will improve is bullshit.

        “A Constitutional Convention. Many “conservatives” seem to want that. I don’t understand why. To me, sounds like an opportunity for the “woke” to legitimize their anarcho-tyranny by shredding the current Constitution. ”

        Having a CC is a very risky proposition, more so in these ‘woke’ times.

        The people who founded this country did what they could to design a federal government structure which operated in slow motion.

        To use the Senate as an example, they wanted a rather boring debate society to slow down the House of Representatives from making too many rash decisions based on passing popular sentiment which changed direction along with the wind.

        The idea was adversely changed by the 17th Amendment, more than enough change for me.

        They created the Electoral College to further slow down the process and put the Executive election in the hands of the states.

        It appears they had adverse sentiment for hasty decisions.

        It is difficult to assemble a Constitutional Convention (another example of slowing it down), good how it is so difficult.

        Imagine if the folks who brought us the Summer of 2020 riots were all sitting in a Constitutional Convention now. Fortunately, it is still a bad dream, not reality.

        A convention of the States could repeal certain amendments that have damaged this nation and could include amendments that would force the Congress and Executive to play within the confines of the law. Such as:

        1. Repeal the Income Tax Amendment.
        2. Repeal the amendment that turned the Senate into a glorified House of Representatives and denied the individual states representation in the Federal Government. This destroyed the critical balance of power established by the compromise between the Federalists and the States Rights framers.
        3. Require a balanced budget.
        4. Eliminate the Federal Reserve Bank.
        5. Require term limits.

        Unfortunately, the States are just as busted as the Federal Government and few there be that actually understand the Constitution as it was intended by the original authors.

          • Anthea October 3, 2023 at 11:57 am #

            @ Groundhog:

            I’m a woman, myself, and I think it might be more to the point to have some kind of requirements other than one sex placed on eligibility to vote. Many people suggest property ownership. Historically, blacks were required to take a literacy test–which most of them couldn’t pass, even today. Some have suggested that you should be required to be a taxpayer, and not allowed to vote if you were on welfare, or some form of welfare, or if you were a government employee (which is glorified welfare).

            I’m not sure what restrictions I would place on the eligibility to vote–though, minimally, I think literacy should be a requirement, as well as the ability to do basic math. (A good test of that would be whether or not you could reconcile a checking account correctly.)

            I think our main problem, perhaps especially in relation to women voters, but not limited to them, is that around half of the employed people in this country work for the government, at one level or another, or for enterprises that are government-subsidized, like health care. I’ve never checked the statistics, but I suspect that there are more women who are government workers than men. For example, if you look around any hospital or doctor’s office, the women far outnumber the men. And there are probably more women employed by the public school system than men.

            So, in addition to requiring basic literacy and numeracy, I would suggest that no one who is employed by the government should be allowed to vote. Neither should anyone be allowed to vote if they are employed by any enterprise that gets even a penny of government money or enjoys any form of government-conferred monopoly.

            If you think about it, you can see that there wouldn’t be very many eligible voters, if you imposed these requirements, but I think that would be a good thing.

          • Groundhog October 3, 2023 at 5:52 pm #

            @ Anthea – Well, at the moment I can’t come up with any arguments against what you’ve just written. Voting should be a mechanism for choosing the very best candidates available to occupy public offices. The only way to get the most qualified people in office is to only allow the very best and most informed people to vote. The sheer number of people voting is irrelevant. Having – say – a million of the most qualified and knowledgeable people in the country voting will result in much more qualified and capable leaders being elected. It’s not necessary at all to have 100 million people voting. I tend to think that people whose news sources consist only of tv and newspapers should be disqualified from voting. Their votes contain no useful information and only reflect what some jackasses are saying on mainstream media.

          • Anthea October 4, 2023 at 8:35 am #

            @ Groundhog:

            First and foremost, anyone who gets their living from the government has an inherent conflict of interest, when it comes to voting. Their own interests coincide with increasing the government’s power and control, and with increased taxation.

    • Cankerpuss October 2, 2023 at 5:06 pm #

      Currently, the Federal Register, the record of all laws and acts passed by Congress, has 81,405 total pages spread throughout numerous volumes. This is the law of the land, not the Constitution. The Constitution has become nothing more than a procedural guide for establishing the various branches of Government. It no longer regulates what those branches of Government can or cannot be doing as the Supreme Courts of the past have so badly butchered and maligned the “commerce clause” and the “health and welfare clause” to encompass and authorize any and everything the Federal Government gets involved in. It’s disgusting.

      The Constitution authorizes a convention of states. This enables the individual states to hold a convention and amend the Constitution outside of the purview of the US Congress and the US Executive branch. It was included in there to prevent what is happening today with a Congress that no longer represents the states or the people and a run-away executive. The States could use this at any time to create amendments requiring a balanced budget, currency and spending reforms, term limits, etc. It could also be used to repeal amendments such as the insidious income tax amendment or the amendment that turned the Senate into nothing more than a glorified House of Representatives and denied the individual States (not the people, they have the House) representation in the Federal Government.

      But alas, the individual states, like the people, are too polarized to come together.

      And such is the sorry situation of the United States of America. There is nobody there to bring us together. No statesmen like George Washington or John Adams. No leaders. Nobody with the desire to fix the problems. Nobody who truly cares about America any more. If there is they are sued and destroyed by lies and rumors and nobody with authority gives a damn.

      And so the sick nation lumbers on, staggering to reach the finish line, whatever that finish line actually is.

      Heart breaking.

    I find Kennedy objectionable on the grounds of familial ties. I objected to Bush two for the same reason, as well as Hillary. I would find Michelle Obama equally unacceptable. I do not want to see the equivalent of ruling families running this country to a greater extent than they already do. I was frankly worried that Newsom would appoint Meghan Markle to Diane Feinstein’s senate seat, though I have heard he’d been refusing to accept her phone calls lately. I suppose she’d have to give up her title. The woman he appointed apparently lives in Maryland and is an abortion activist. I thought that to serve a state in such a capacity the minimum requirement would be actual residency in said state.

      Snubbing the Markle monster is possibly the only Newsom action that I approve of.

      Mitt Romney lived in his vacation home in Holladay Utah, claimed and qualified for residency and got his Senate seat. He’s no more Utahn than Barak Obama. Were I to be king of the world one of my requirements to be that you have to have been born in that state, or lived there for more than a decade to qualify as a representative of it.

  15. Beryl of Oyl October 2, 2023 at 10:30 am #

    This is something I saw the other day that fits in with what I think of RFK Jr. as a candidate:

    “The fundamental issue with an RfK Jr presidency is that he has major central planner instincts. He needs a narrow scope, such as Big Pharma and Govt Health. Best deployed as the guy who exposes corruption and reforms institutions. His principles elsewhere are all over the place.”

    https://x.com/JordanSchachtel/status/1708154885210841552?s=20

    That’s my issue too. He looks at some problem directly caused by our government, and his solution, nearly every time, is government. More lib programs. “Major central planner instincts”.

      Well said. I like RFK compared to the others. I have many concerns about him also. And I wonder if he will do a 180 on Big Pharma and Govt Health. It is possible.

      I like Trump with same logic–compared to the others. Plus, the more “they” try to use lawfare on him, the more I like him.

      But his stock is down, he has a record as President. Some good, but quite a bid bad, IMO.

      IF the “core” of public opinion held views close to what most people in this space hold, things would not be so bad, and our leaders would not get away with nearly as much.

      But the American school system has been dumbed down since the 1960s. A lot. It’s been dumbed down since “Fast Times at Ridgemont Hight”, the 1980s. People are glued to their phones.

          Not to mention things like “porn rings” among THIRD GRADERS (I just heard about this from a teacher the other day.)

          Couple years ago in my little farm town, a 13-year-old girl was RAPED by a 13-year-old boy. It all started with their damn PHONES. Sexting. Typical insecure 13-year-old girl — the usual adolescent angst intensified by it being her first year here after moving in from somewhere else — craving “love,” gives in to boy’s requests to send him nude pictures of herself. Then, gives in to his requests to send him pictures of her CUTTING herself, to show him how much she “loves” him. Finally, he rapes her. Afterward, she attempts suicide, ends up in the hospital, critical condition. Then, and only then, do her parents learn what’s been going on.

          You are INSANE if you allow your kids to have a smartphone before they are 18. Yes, there will be tremendous social pressure brought to bear on your kids and on you. You will be called uptight, prudish, a tyrant. Your kids will be subject to teasing by their peers. Two words: TOUGH SHIT.

          My youngest graduated high school.in 2016, and granted, things weren’t quite as bad then as now, but he got some grief from his peers for having an “old-fashioned” simple flip-phone. A couple years ago, he actually THANKED me for having been a hard-ass about not letting him get a smartphone until after he graduated high school.

          Your kids will thank you, too. Someday.

            Congolese grifters preying on rural kids in Montana. One recent case: Pretended to be a girl, probably sending nude photos and then requested the same from him. Once received, they demanded money or they would release the photos. The teenage boy begged for mercy, saying that he didn’t have that kind of money and that he’d kill himself if they exposed him. The Congolese said, Go ahead. He did.

        That’s fucking fascinating, Socrates Detroit. At least you’ve air-quoted the ‘they’, but the lawfare accusation isn’t quite so amusing. Your attitude (shared by many of your ilk) basically says two things:
        1 – “I choose not to believe in the law any longer” and
        2 – “Trump is above the law”.

        Considering that the RWNJ Caucus is currently trying to impeach Biden but cannot for the life of it, produce any evidence of actual wrongdoing, yet. You’d be happy with a rigged investigation, I’m betting, if it got you what you want – or what you think you want. You have no moral core.

      To get anything out of this government, some sort of cohesion or commonality must exist between the opponents.

      That does not exist today. The DNC, representing most of its people, hates the Constitutional USA. The MAGA folks, believing in the goodness of America, hates the folks that hate the country.

      The hatred is too broad and deep. History shows that situations like now are only resolved with total destruction of one side.

      Even if the South had been preserved during the Civil War, the North would have destroyed what was left over succeeding years. Total destruction of the South’s army and Reconstruction destroyed the Antebellum South, totally.

      You are getting close, but still far off. It’s the billionaires like Soros and many other quiet ones that are the cause, the politicians are just the symptom. You get rid of one or many of these and they will just replace them with others. It’s the billionaires you have to get rid of to make a real difference.

      Example: Ever wonder why ALL the MSM uses the same phrases and so forth? It’s not that the DNC instructed them, it comes from the board members. But the board members are only on one MSM board but there are 6 boards. These board members are controlled by the billionaires. The billionaires use their money to either bribe, or threaten with force. They control the DOJ, FBI, CIA, DHS, HHS and all the others.

      So no change will make a difference until there is a revolution and all people of power are taken out like the French Revolution. Will this ever happen? Maybe in 20 years but not anytime soon. Children have to go hungry for this to happen.

      An interesting fact: Russia has 16,000 nuke shelters. U.S. has 1 in Seattle. Seems Russia cares for it’s citizens more than we do. I am sure the ‘important’ people in U.S. has a nuke bunker to go to, but will they be given enough advanced notice?

      If so, I guess that would mean we have to strike first as I’m sure Russia will not call ahead and say “we are shooting off in an hour, get to your bunker”.

      Sure, we have an alert system, but best case I think that only gives us 20 minutes. Is 20 minutes enough time for them? I doubt it, so I’m back to the ole: we will strike first, so if you see a bunch of helicopters in the air at the same time, run to your bunker. You got one, right?

    MAGA plus Dem moderates could crush the Woke Left and that is what needs to happen to save this country. Even the RINOs would have to give way and maybe stop protecting the Deep State.

    It is vital to realize that the Deep State is the number one enemy of the USA and its people.

    The Deep State needs to be crushed, the WEF repudiated and the BRICS++ dealt with. No way with the current Deep State Mob.

          Mike Robinson went off on a bit of a rant today on UKC News Extra – on a subject on which he has been known to have a little rant before.

          It was on the subject of ‘controlled opposition’, a concept which clearly annoys him, and he was pointing out that whether or not someone is thought to be ‘controlled opposition’ is neither here nor there, because the point is what we do or don’t do, to resist the agenda, not what they do.

      Interesting idea, but my personal experience suggests that moderate Dems don’t exist – not, at least, in numbers enough to make a difference. Everyone I know who still votes Democrat will continue to do so no matter how bizarre and malignant the party becomes. They either support these policies or they’re completely unaware of what they’re supporting and don’t believe you when you point it out.

      I suspect RFK, Jr., if he gets that far, will siphon off votes from the Republican candidate and vanishingly few from the Democrat. I’d like to be proven wrong.

    President Rodrigo Chaves of Costa Rica has declared a state of emergency, but not due to anything happening in his nation per say.

    People across the globe are passing through Costa Rica en route for the USA as the borders are open to all. Our president is not concerned, but other nations see the threat to national security this presents.

    “The people that arrive are passing across Costa Rica trying to get to the United States, basically,” President Rodrigo Chaves stated. The International Organization for Migration (IOM) said that border crossings have increased 55% in one month alone, with 84,490 people passing through in August. Migrants are crossing the Darien Gap, a jungle terrain connecting the nation to Panama and Colombia. The IOM believes a quarter of a million people have made their way through this area in 2023. Worse, only 20% of those traveling are children, which means that the women are likely not traveling through either. This is a planned invasion of military-aged men.

        What’s different now is the number of MINORS, being brought in by traffickers. The Biden administration has actually prohibited the DNA testing that used to be done to see if the person claiming to be their “parent” actually is their parent. Biden, in other words, has rolled put the red carpet to child-traffickers, the most evil people on earth. The U.S. is the #1 destination for trafficked children and the #1 consumer of child pornography. How’s THAT for a “Christian nation”?

        The border mess is, by the way, all connected with the LGBTQ+ demonry such as the “drag queen story hours” and the “pride parades” with their colorful balloons and rainbow lollipops that attract children. Break down the family, destroy children’s inborn/natural sense of modesty, acclimate them to obscene perversion, GROOM THEM.

        The trafficking and the grooming is all being promoted by the same people, and for the same satanic purposes. The well-meaning “refugee service” bleeding-hearts and the well-meaning “tolerant,” “protect trans children” bleeding-hearts are all useful idiots for diabolically evil entities.

        I did in Dec of 2020. A) it didn’t make since to me that they would mandate that everybody take it if it worked. If it worked, those who wanted to take it would and that’s all that mattered. B) I read that the vax contained a component that 70% of the populate is allergic to.

        I believe 70% of the population of those who took it, their body’s have changed. I believe they have stuff, protein strains in their blood vessels, that are building up. Those who take protein supplements and exercise hard end up having more of this stuff and force it to kill the heart. I believe the old people who have clogged arteries are also at a big risk.

        The rest of them just don’t know it’s there and it’s not life threating yet. It doesn’t drain with the blood when they take blood for tests, so it doesn’t show up in tests. I could be wrong, but that is my explanation as to why I wouldn’t take it and why healthy active people are dying off at a much greater rate than ever before.

        • Rowdypiglet October 2, 2023 at 2:54 pm #

          @Don’tKnock, Their insistence that EVERYONE take it was an early clue. Another that made me pay close attention was the redefinition of “vaccine,” manipulation of the language being a particularly leftist form of trickery.

          And then there were doctors, from the first, who were aghast at being told to treat the virus with NOTHING, and wait until the patient couldn’t breathe and had to be hospitalized. This is as far from standard treatment as it’s possible to get and seemed specifically intended to make the patient sicker.

          And then there was a doctor in charge of a nursing home with a few hundred patients who somehow didn’t get the memo (or pretended not to). He gave every one of the elderly residents an antihistamine and, as I recall, Nyquil. No one died or even got sick.

          Last, I recalled my vet telling me when one of my animals was sick, that we’d first give him a broad spectrum antibiotic until we knew exactly what he had. It wouldn’t specifically target the virus in question but it would help until we knew just what it was.

          All the standard treatments went out the window and doctors were encouraged to let their patients get as sick as possible, without any intervention at all; that alone was unprecedented.

            Private practice physicians are rare. Most ( my understanding is well north of 70%) are hospital employees.

            So, RP, those you describe were still practicing medicine based on do no harm and put the patient’s best interest first.

            Rare these days. Hospital administrators decide how medicine as a system should function. Bottom line and bonuses are generally the standard of practice.

    I decided to look at the checkerboard from a chess players point of view, and I feel that some of us are not looking at the board correctly. The open borders are letting in military age men into the country at levels that can’t be a positive, peaceful trend for this country. This is the scenario I came up with. Due to the health/heart damaged youth from the shots, and that most of our youths general state of physical fitness has a lot to be desired, they will have a high turnover rate and will not become an effective fighting force, when the draft is reinstated for the next futile, endless war. There will be a “solution” on drafting these young, undocumented males for the military. The current “woke” pogroms are purging the capable members of the military with experience and fealty to the constitution. They will be replaced with what the woke PTB desires, which is loyalty to the woke agenda (them). I imagine discipline will be brutal as they will not have any rights and the protections of the constitution. So, they will do what they are told, there will no such thing as an unlawful order. Military experience and capability will take a back seat to the woke gods and these “soldiers” will have no allegiance to the constitution or this country. We will then have a crisis of some type (EMP, staged attack, take your pick), which these “soldiers” will be mandated to restore order in the continental US. They will take the blue areas first, communication will be shut down there, (probably everywhere), and those places are where the atrocities will begin. Those places will eventually be fortified to the point unless we are willing to conduct unlimited warfare on those areas, they will use those places as the bases for their operations. Everywhere else will see infrastructure failure, epidemics and crop failures caused by the labs/soldiers set up in those blue areas, that’s how they will weaken the red areas to the point that they will need order “restored”. I sure hope I am wrong about this, but this would explain one reason why the undocumented were not vaccinated. They are already trying to recruit them for the police force in some of the blue areas. I worry more about this than the voting, not saying that is not a SERIOUS issue, it is very much so, but if we can’t get back to border control, I think that voting is going to be the least of our problems.

      I have had a feeling about the border situation since its onset. Is it a pull situation where the goodness of America is pulling people north?

      Or is it a push situation where WEF and perhaps BRICS++ financing and propaganda are pushing people north with money and lies about the “Promised Land”

      Anyone who has read or seen “The Grapes of Wrath” know how the Okies were pushed by false advertising from California to move only to find out that the lies were phony.

      Why isn’t our illustrious DOJ, oh sure, or at least Fox News knocking on doors in Latin America, Africa, Syria and China to see who is pushing these poor folks. All the NYC, LA, SF, San Diego, Denver homeless folks might be cursing these propagandists were they come from. My belief is that a big part of the propaganda come from the Mob in DC.

      Mayors of SF, Chicago and NYC are sending out LOUD warnings of what is coming. The Mob turns deaf ears.

            “Steinbeck consistently and woefully points to the fact that the migrants’ great suffering is caused not by bad weather or mere misfortune but by their fellow human beings. Historical, social, and economic circumstances separate people into rich and poor, landowner and tenant, and the people in the dominant roles struggle viciously to preserve their positions. In his brief history of California in Chapter 19, Steinbeck portrays the state as the product of land-hungry squatters who took the land from Mexicans and, by working it and making it produce, rendered it their own. Now, generations later, the California landowners see this historical example as a threat, since they believe that the influx of migrant farmers might cause history to repeat itself. In order to protect themselves from such danger, the landowners create a system in which the migrants are treated like animals, shuffled from one filthy roadside camp to the next, denied livable wages, and forced to turn against their brethren simply to survive. The novel draws a simple line through the population—one that divides the privileged from the poor—and identifies that division as the primary source of evil and suffering in the world.”

            The Dignity of Wrath

            “The Joads stand as exemplary figures in their refusal to be broken by the circumstances that conspire against them. At every turn, Steinbeck seems intent on showing their dignity and honor; he emphasizes the importance of maintaining self-respect in order to survive spiritually. Nowhere is this more evident than at the end of the novel.” [ mama Joad’s speech ]

    Well, I’m probably stating the obvious that a whole bunch of other commenters are probably going to also state, but voters who want Biden and the shit-lib Democrats out for the reasons that you do are likely to view RFK as a spoiler against Trump. I’m guessing that RFK’s main appeal will be lifelong Democrats such as yourself who find RFK more palatable than Trump plus some independents who don’t like Trump’s abrasively egotistical personality. I’m not sure that’s enough for an independent bid to amount to anything, though that does make a lot more sense for RFK than to try for the nomination of a party that would clearly give him the “Bernie Sanders” treatment.

      RFK has to run as an independent.

      He already ascertained that in no way are the Democrats going to allow him to be their nominee.

      So, who is foolish enough to keep funding a race that cannot possibly get off the ground?

      Certainly not the big donors.

      He has to go big or go home. The question was always, would he?

      It looks like we have our answer.

      There are people out there trying to use the fact that Bobby “admits” he’s had polling done that shows he would draw more votes from Republicans than Democrats, as proof of something sinister.

      What kind of fool considering running third party, which again, his choices now are third party or quit; what serious candidate would not have such polling done?

      RFK could be running as a spoiler. I don’t happen to think so, but anything is possible.

      It’s just that people are trying to use the prospect of his going third party as evidence against his serious, when it also can be used to suggest exactly the opposite.

        I know that I probably represent less than 1 percent of the voters, since I loathe the entire Democrat Party with the raging heat of a thousand suns, and yet…

        CANNOT forgive Trump for Covid/clot shots. The Covid op is global democide, pure and simple. It’s PERSONAL with me. I know too many people who’ve died or who are now suffering with new, life-altering disabilities and weird freaky autoimmune diseases caused by those shots. And that’s not even to mention all the DEAD BABIES. Miscarriages and STILLBIRTHS.

        For me, this global democide pretty much dwarfs all other issues.

        A complication for me is that I have been a pro-life activist since the age of 15 (half a century now), and have always felt I could never in good conscience vote for someone who’s okay with abortion.

        But given all the babies who’ve died or been born with horrific birth defects as a result of those damned shots… I am pretty tempted to compromise my lifelong position and support RFK.

        • Anthea October 3, 2023 at 5:53 pm #

          @ Heartlander:

          I agree about Trump. Promoting democide is a pretty big deal. It’s hard to imagine a stronger indication that someone is not on your side than that they want to kill you. But being in favor of abortion is not a very good sign either. I think they’re all opportunists–opportunists who are perfectly okay with mass murder.

          I don’t often agree with Jarek, but he’s dead right about the psychology here. The bad guys HATE US more than they love life, even their own.

          The people running things remind me of the psycho school massacre shooters. They are nihilists whose hearts are dark and full of contempt for everything, so they commit suicide — but not without taking a whole bunch of people down with them.

          @Jarek, I would have disagreed with this several years back. But people I thought of as reasonable, sane, and without an ounce of real hatred in them, have shown me a side of themselves I couldn’t have believed existed. It just required this set of circumstances in order to be revealed. These kinds of revelations are life changing. We may continue to love these people after they’ve taken off the masks, and can even forgive them, but trust is gone forever.

          RFK is roided up, so this makes the whole thing less humorous.

          I want to like RFK, but there are too many red flags.

          RFK and Trump could work together though. Trump has been duped by Big Pharma, and RFK has been duped by Climate Tards.

          They cancel each other out, which would satisfy the 30 percent of critical thinkers in the US and solve many of the problems created by criminals and massive idiots.

    Trump also thinks he can bring divided Americans together. It burns me when I see people who will vote for Bobby bash Trump as having divided us.

    What divided us is the MSM and Barack Obama and the media’s constant lies about what Trump said and did.

    That and the Republican “pundit” class who look down their noses at people like me.

    • DontKnockOnMyDoor October 2, 2023 at 2:31 pm #

      That’s what I tell people. Trump for the most part isn’t divisive, he is made to seem divisive by those in charge of MSM, congress, and the rest of the government because he is a threat to them.

      The problem is the brainwashing worked. Even my mom hates Trump. Says she likes most of his policies but doesn’t like him. They used Trump’s words against him to get women to hate him. Things like the bragging that the rich like him can get any woman and just use them like a doll is what did it. Talk like that used to be a norm when Trump was young, he just didn’t keep up with the times.

      Liberals are great at using real or fake sexual situations to their advantage and Trump was the perfect guy to use it on.

      • Paula D October 2, 2023 at 3:02 pm #

        Trump’s claim is proved everytime some MeToo advocate looks at Biden sniffing and groping children and tells you “He’s just being friendly.”

      What the “outsiders” do is bring together other groups of outsiders who normally wouldn’t talk.

      They don’t have a chance of “bringing together” two groups who now really hate and, worse, totally distrust each other.

      So, they should not campaign on “bringing people together.”

      They should campaign purely on shared interests. Economic interests. Ending the Ukraine war. Stopping the migrant tsunami and sending all illegals back where they came from.

    Kennedy is a bought and paid for member of the democrat mafia. His entire family lives off their democrat political connections. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you comes to mind and that tells me he’s going to do anything and everything to keep democrats in control.

    Kennedy will siphon off votes from Trump and eventually the democrat mafia will run someone not as toxic as Biden or stupid as Newsom. They may even bring back that anti war, several tours of duty helping kill people, phony Tulsi Gabbard.

    It will end up a three way race where democrat cheating will win either with the democrat candidate winning or Kennedy, the secret democrat candidate winning. The whole point is not to let Trump win and keep control over the country for another 4 years of oligarch looting. Trump may not even make it to the election or he may try to be a third party candidate because those RINO republican mafia members hate him.

    In the end it doesn’t matter who gets elected. When the Dollar fails, it will be all over for the Fed Gov.

    I agree that Kennedy could win, and I agree that the powers that be will pull every trick they have to stop him.

    What will Americans do about that? Most likely bicker among themselves about “controlled opposition”‘, is my guess, along with saying smugly, “I knew they wouldn’t let him win”, as if there was a prize for recognizing the depth of the depravity of our rulers

    Plugging your man into a broken, bought, and corrupted system is not going to magically produce desired outcomes.

    It will be 4 more years of bipartisan (uniparty) barriers, investigations, allegations, censure, etc. The courts will block him, the people he appoints will block him, his party will block him, the bureaucratic leviathan will block him, and his opponents will not cease in stopping him and removing him.

    4 more years of nothing.

      The German Weimar Republic was in some ways similar to what we have going on in the USA at the moment. In Germany an extremely powerful showman type figure arose out of the swamps and turned everything around. Finally a real war hero wearing the Iron Cross second class and a charismatic leader as well steps up on the stagel. Before long the economy starts booming, there’s full employment, prosperity is back again, and the German enjoy the great pleasure of ruthlessly kicking the asses of all the nations that caused them so much pain a few decades earlier.

            They’re behind Communism after all. Of course it does take on a life of its own and ends up God knows where. Monarchy in North Korea? Fascism in Russia (a good thing). National Socialism in China (great for them, maybe not for non-Chinese people everywhere else).

        It was working great, Culo. That’s why the Capitalist had to destroy it before it spread.

They knew they could count on the stupidity of the average American, befuddled as they were by the propaganda of their alien owned newspapers. They were entirely correct in this.

    Well ladies and germs;

    Big News! The Brits are sending advisors to Vietnam…I mean (The) Ukraine…

    (8) U.K. PUTTING BOOTS ON THE GROUND IN UKRAINE: British Defense Secretary Grant Shapps said on Sunday that he plans to put U.K. military forces in Ukraine and play a more active role against Russia in the Black Sea.
    Shapps said he intends to move U.K. military advisors and training for Ukrainian forces into western Ukraine and increase the British defense industry presence there.
    Russia’s Deputy Chairman of the National Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, called the move foolish and said that Russia would definitely target British military forces inside Ukraine.
    Why It Matters: Such a move by the U.S. ally would escalate the conflict and almost assuredly result in Moscow specifically targeting U.K. military personnel and defense contractors. The U.K. is likely looking for a provocation it can use to generate a NATO Article V intervention as Ukraine’s military falters in its long-winded counteroffensive. Should the U.K. make such a move, Washington will likely attempt to follow – a move that could take the U.S. one step closer to a near-peer war and widen the divide between America outside of Washington and its ruling-class government.

    What could possibly go wrong?

          Actually, Brits are even more hysterically Russia-hating than Americans, from what I read. In Britain, the hatred goes back much further. Russia helped Americans in the American Revolution, and Russia helped the Union in the American Civil War. Those two things obviously did not endear Russia to the Brits, but British Russia-hatred pre-dated those wars, it goes back CENTURIES.

      Google the etymology of “nation” and you will realize there is no hope. A nation is a family, a unity of the both blood and culture.

      We have neither now.

      One can hope and pray for a White enclave to appear, highly militarized, and willing and able to both take in White refugees and to expand into new parts of the old United Sates and Canada. Zero tolerance for both Liberals and Conservative “old believers”.

          You see, Hog, Russia is a different nation or family than we are. And on different “soil”. Place matters in a universe of time and space. As does blood. As does cult, culture, language, and history. But yes! They are White and Christian as we are and must be again. We are natural allies as Lindbergh said.

            A year or so ago, a cartoon was making the rounds on VK, the most popular social-media site/app in Russia. It showed a Texas soldier with a Texas flag, side by side with a Russian soldier with a Russian flag, with the Alamo in the background. The version I saw had a caption, “Freedom for Texas!”

            It’s a nice little fantasy, but Papa Volodya ain’t coming to save us. He’s got his hands full just trying to save his own country.

            Having said that, I agree with Catholic archbishop Carlo Vigano that Russia is “the last bastion of civilization against barbarism,” and, to borrow a phrase from someone else, the last best hope of earth.

            You will notice that Putin in his speeches draws a distinction between the U.S. government and the American PEOPLE. Russian leaders know that we the people here are oppressed by the evil syndicate just as are the poor victims of U.S. oppression in other countries.

            You may also have seen that when Russia released the 20,000 pages of documents on the U.S. bioweapons labs in Ukraine, their statement singled out the Democratic Party of the U.S. as well as Democrat individuals such as Hunter Biden among the villains.

            Finally, for whatever it’s worth, Aleksandr Dugin (who is NOT “Putin’s brain” as our moronic media claim, but nevertheless is not an insignificant figure in Russian political thought) draws a distinction between coastal (pirate-like) people and “heartland” people everywhere. There’s a lot of commonality between Russians (at least, once you get out of Moscow and St. Petersburg) and flyover-country Americans.

            Yes. There was a lot of autonomy among many 19th century Russians in small towns, even in their serfdom. All forms and times of serfdom aren’t equally oppressive.

            And it was race and culture that kept that life going. What we have, generally, in the West now is a debilitating push for the bifurcation between the White race and culture.

            There are lots of folks in Russia trying to preserve and revive the traditional culture.

            One such group, Family Circle, is centered in Myshkin, Russia, a couple hours or so north of Moscow. This beautiful video was made at their annual Russian Family Festival. The group playing a gorgeous arrangement of an old Russian folk song is Otava Yo, a very popular group that is leading a revival of Russian folk music.

            A vision of PARADISE in a little under seven minutes. I’ve watched this thing at least 40 times in the last few weeks… and I still gets tears or goosebumps. Every. Single. Time.

    Sorry, JHK, but RFK, Jr. is just “Leftist Light,” far easier to stomach than the Socialist/Communist/Fascist anti-American dirtbags of the Obama/Hillary/Biden Democrat elite scum cabal, but not conservative enough to declare BLM and ANTIFA domestic terrorist groups, to deport every illegal alien currently in U.S., to withdraw the U.S. from the UN and the WEF, to tell the ChiComms to pound sand, and to prosecute the lengthening list of Democrat scum from Biden on down who have committed treason against the United States. President Trump is the only candidate with the ‘heuvos” to do all of that, and he, after the way that he has been personally treated by “The Blob,” has plenty of incentive to do so. The Democrats know this and that is why they are terrified of Trump, and they will do ANYTHING–and, yes, I do include assassination on the list of things that deranged Trump-hating Democrats are willing to do–to keep Trump from being re-elected as President.

    An ever-growing list of law-abiding, lower, middle and upper middle class Americans are getting plenty sick of the Democrat elite scum ruining the United States, and, at some point not in the distant future, will change things. Have things gotten bad enough yet for that to happen? Not quite, but give it just a few months more of economic and social destruction by the left, and that moment of “critical mass” will arrive. There will be a “reset,” just not the kind that the WEF and the Democrat elite scum think that they are going to get.

    JHK nails the topics of the day so absolutely succinctly, but I part ways with his optimism and insistence that the DOJ, FBI, all the various malevolent players attendant thereto will soon be called to the stark floor of justice and forced to atone for their crimes. This will never happen; it will take a complete unraveling of society for anything like that to happen, and the last thing the average American will concern himself with is which politician or 3-letter agency bureaucrat to tar and feather. Rather, they’ll be totally inundated just navigating the basic necessities of their lives and avoiding being robbed by someone else doing the same.

    There comes a point at which there is no political solution to our problems, when voting does not avail us, and things have to unspool entirely before we can begin to put things back together. I’m not certain this will not once again benefit government and not us, as has been the case for 100 years at the very least.

    There will not be civil war, or anything like it, in this country. That would require planning, organizing, terms of war, strategies, goals, etc. One look at social media will tell you that Americans will argue and fight over even the smallest item imaginable, and spend great swathes of time mocking and denigrating others in order to get what they consider the upper hand. No, there will only be chaos at our own expense, not the jackals who set all this entropy into motion.

    Alex Christophoru does a great job wrapping up today’s news, with a triple dose of insanity.

    It starts with Lindsey Graham promising Face the Nation that the Senate will send $70 billion to Ukraine, with Biden promising the American people to be assured that they will do it.
    Because Americans are clamoring for more billions to be sent to the Nazis in Kiev.
    He also talks about the election in Slovakia, and predicts it will be used to ramp up the censorship in the EU.

    Alex also has a theory that they are ramping up the historical revisionism about WW2.
    I agree. They thought that they had the entire western public mind-controlled enough to believe that the US and UK fought against “Russia” in WW2. The US and UK were actually allied with the USSR, and the USSR were the ones that actually defeated Germany.
    Most everyone in 1945 knew that, but polls have shown that the decades of propaganda have convinced majorities in every country that it was the USA that beat Germany, not the USSR.

    So they felt safe in supporting Nazis in Kiev and honoring a Waffen SS veteran in the Canadian Parliament.

    Oops! It turned out that not all of the western public are braindead idiots! Their bad! That needs fixin’.

    So they are really ramping it up now, (much like they ramped up the propaganda in the summer of 2021 when it turned out that their 2020 propaganda hadn’t convinced enough people to line up for the death juice shot.)

    If you pay attention, you can tell when they are rolling out a new propaganda campaign.

      The Russians are increasingly concluding that the western leaders are insane and evil enough to start WW3. That is no doubt why they are preparing the population to respond to air raid sirens.

      We in the west also think our ruling overlords are batshit crazy, but we tend to think small, predicting the assassinations of unfavored political figures.

      Personally, I think big! They are going to start WW3, because they are completely unhinged from reality.
      They think that men can give birth, and putting a wig on makes a man a women, and they think that announcing that Kiev is winning makes it so.

      They are crazy and evil. I think that most of the world agrees.

    You are ALL barking up the wrong tree.

    IMO, I think Biden is in the perfect place to play the LBJ card and NOT run for reelection. He could bloviate about faithfully serving the American people for 50 years and that he is confident in the next generation to take over blah blah blah. Plus the usual throwaway line of wanting to spend time with his family…., y’know.

    That will put pressure on the Party of Chaos to present Cackles Harris as the obvious candidate. But, even the Dems can’t sell that. They will let her run but, engineer a way for her to bail out early and make way for the Dem’s version of the Resurrection of Richard Nixon from the political grave in 1968.

    But THIS TIME, it will be the Dems who will stand outside Hillary’s political tomb and call out with a loud voice, “Hillary, rise and come forth!” And Hillary will come out of the grave in her 2016 winding sheets and be given a new image. Yet shall her cankles not be diminished one jot nor tittle nor dimple of cellulite shall be lost. The Dems will all shout as with one voice, “The first Hillary was of the Earth! The last is of the Spirit!” And the Media shall anoint her with the slogan, “I Have Returned” that she may rise up to meet Trump’s resurrection. You KNOW that’s how the Dems will play this.

    And it shall come to pass that Saint Cankles shall cast about for a running mate and she WILL call out for Cackles. The stars have aligned for a total female ticket and Cackles has enough POC to check off the Diversity box.

    “You have to wonder what took Bobby Kennedy, Jr. so long to recognize that the Democratic Party was a home that he had long ago been turned out of…”

    It didn’t take him long. He knew it years ago. What he did was to allow the Democrat Party apparatus to expose itself as being nothing like the Dems-Junior-Knew before and that used to be. And that the Party of Today has no intention to be ‘fair’ and ‘inclusive’. The Dem Party is now The Iron Fist or Orwell’s Boot stomping on everything and everyone that gets in its lost and depraved way.

    It was a smart move on Jr.’s part to show that ‘He gave Them Dems a chance’ and that he cannot now be viewed as a spoiler who let the Orange Man get back in 2024 – that is, if Orange Guy has any money left and has not yet collapsed under the phony weight of another 214 Indictments.

    “‘Joe Biden’ is now a monumental embarrassment and a liability to our country… Gavin Newsom dangles himself above the fray…

    The Resident (and Mr. Cali-Hair, and all the others) are bad cartoon characters who were written into a bad Saturday Morning Cartoon (that runs all week and year) called American Politics. We’d have a better chance with Porky Pig or Bugs Bunny or The Roadrunner – or even Svengoolie – than we’ll have with any of the cartoonish characters running for The Big Chair.

    RFK Junior has no chance to succeed in American Politics. He is a serious and dedicated man and nothing like a cartoon.

    But one way or another, he will never BE ALLOWED by The Hidden Hands to succeed. But just like some of the family elders, he is showing a courage that is remarkable and rare… a man born into wealth and privilege that willingly takes on the nastiness and ugliness of politics and a broken Nation and works to try to make things better. Someone who feels a duty and purpose when most others just turn their noses and backs in pursuit of more personal selfish indulgences and indifference to the needs and hurts of others.

    Whatever happens from this point forward and regardless of who gets what votes… the 2024 Election Cycle winner is Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. It’s not even close.

    May God Bless and protect this man… and others like him. And may We the People pray that somehow and somewhere, more men like this emerge from the dark shark infested and polluted waters that are ruled by the Leadership Class today.

      You have to wonder why anyone could make such a silly assumption.

      RFK JR. seems to have held himself apart from the clown party, saying nothing. I don’t recall any statement or action of his that supported or suggested alignment with the current Dem clowns. He is a Dem by association of the family name and history—nothing more that I see.

      He has now checked the formal “party” boxes—to show that they are as ill-faithed as they appear—and now he is a free man.

      As for his family “disowning” him—it just speaks poorly for them. Even if they disagree with his politics and philosophy and ideas, their behavior is pretty tacky.

      They could have followed his example and just said nothing.

      Or they could say: He is family. Period.

      But no. They showed themselves to be creeps.

      • Roundball Shaman October 2, 2023 at 5:57 pm #

        “Islander: As for his family ‘disowning’ him—it just speaks poorly for them. Even if they disagree with his politics and philosophy and ideas, their behavior is pretty tacky.”

        As Heartlander correctly pointed out, RFKJ is a flawed man. But he gets more things right than wrong. And the fact that the entrenched Deep State and all the hack-political classes hate him (and all Their State media goons) is all the proof any one of us needs that he’s on the righteous path.

        As with anyone to challenges the power and majesty of the Dark State knows… ‘They’ will do everything in their power to discredit him and to discourage others from daring to challenge their godless Goliath State. But RFKJ seems comfortable in his ‘David’ role. And anyone who has read that famous Bible story knows how that conflict turned out.

        But as I stated before, even if RFKJ doesn’t ‘win’ in the most simplistic measure (by Politics), he has already won by demonstrating courage in the face of hostility and adversity. And showing others… ‘The Path Forward’.

        It’s not surprising that some of his own family don’t support him as they lack his courage and insight into what is happening today, who is doing these things, and about why they are doing them. Those family members have cowardly surrendered to the Group Think of the Day and safety and comfort of surrender to the Clueless Herd.

        And there is not a family anywhere that does not have its champions and angels… and others that you need to stay as far the hell away from them as you can.

        • Islander October 2, 2023 at 8:33 pm #

          “And there is not a family anywhere that does not have its champions and angels… and others that you need to stay as far the hell away from them as you can.”

          You can say that again.
          “Family” is almost always a mixed bag. It can take a lifetime to figure out the many ways one’s family is NOT a “safe space” (:-)).

          Still, in the Kennedy case I was surprised. Most families don’t conduct their drama on the national stage. They should have just shut up if they didn’t like RFK’s politics. They really lacked class.

          So, in a sense RFK is also holding the family standard (“banner” meaning) high by his principled stances.

          I just wish he would make a trip to the West Bank and the Occupied Territories to understand the situ there with his own eyes.

    A state senator from North Dakota, his wife and their two young children died when the small plane they were traveling in crashed in Utah, a Senate leader said Monday.

    Doug Larsen’s death was confirmed Monday in an email that Republican Senate Majority Leader David Hogue sent to his fellow senators and was obtained by The Associated Press.

    So now we must ask, did he in some way cross The Clintons?

    It’s simple! Vote for TRUMP! If you want to avoid Cankles, Cackles, and Big Mike, and Newsome, just vote for TRUMP.
    TRUMP isn’t perfect but he now is experienced. He’s been screwed by the best of them, and he now knows the game.
    TRUMP already has a list of people who are trustworthy. Why go with a loser whether it be Kennedy or Biden. Go ahead, vote for Kennedy. He will be the voter fraud that takes Biden over the top. The excuse will be, TRUMP lost because Kennedy siphoned off votes (mostly mail-ins).
    It’s all how they count the votes.
    Right now, TRUMP has a lot of support. Kennedy is the old “Let’s Make a Silk Purse Out of a Sow’s Ear”.
    Take a deep breath and support TRUMP. Any other choice is a true “CRAP SHOOT”!
    If not, go out and start stocking up on bottled water, canned soup, toilet tissue, and duck tape.

    This is not a superhero movie. We do not need a hero. We do not need anyone. The Government needs a competent Administrator. We should be concerned that Taylor Swift was at a Sunday Night Football game. That was what was at the top of the sports segment this morning. Heaven forfend. The government should be governing and the administrator should be administering and we should be bouncing babies on our knees. No amount of voting is going to get us loose of these sociopaths driving this bus towards our destination.

    My thought is that it makes no difference who wins the election. It would only be the timing of the collapse. There’s no candidate who is “right thinking” (right in the sense of correct or effective).

    Trump had 4 years to try but couldn’t get the job done. RFK, JR I can’t trust. Desantis I don’t trust. I did trust my cat, but he died several years ago.

    Let’s face it: Unless someone comes out of the woodwork, we’re done. At present, total mismanagement of our country has brought us into on-going black hole collapse. I will say if you feel like you have to do something, then prep, prep, prep, even though that might not work. At least you would have a chance to get by, as long as there isn’t a final destruction.

          Nice. It is 80 minutes and, for me, it explains much.

      @ beantownbill:

      I agree, both with your assessment of our situation and the most sensible way to handle it. Personally, I think all of the personalities, events, and supposed beliefs or intentions of everyone involved in politics is what is known as “kayfabe.” For everybody involved, it’s just an acting job.

      I don’t know any of these people (of course), but I suspect that if I did, I would conclude that just appearing to be human is an effort for them.

            ..which is often a symptom of both having kids, and also of being an ultimately weak parent in the end as well, unfortunately.

            In your comments, I see an angry, aging individual with little connection to others–to the point that you have no issues actually killing off most of them.

            Children, love, connection–commitment to life–IS adult reality.

            Commitment to its opposite is a pathology of some sort. I suppose what sort of pathology it is, is variable with the individual.

            In gustafson’s case, it appears to be a pathological attachment to a dream world (or maybe it’s a “dreamtime” world) of purely imaginary noble savages living in a purely imaginary world–one that gustafson imagines would be ideal. The reasons why he believes such a world and such a primitive people to be ideal are no doubt complex, and there are several reasons besides some purely imaginary construct about being in harmony with Gaia.

            One suspects that one of the reasons is a revulsion for the modern world and modern people, coupled, it seems, with a desire to get rid of all those gosh-darned people by whatever means necessary. Very likely, another reason is an unwillingnes to take on the adult business of life and its burdens and responsibilities, which unwillingness leads inevitably to a rejection of children, love, connection, and commitment to life, merely because such things place demands on the person who undertakes them. Thus, the weak and fearful person rejects these things, under the pretext of some principle or ideal or fantasy.

            Nihilism–whatever the pretext–is essentially a choice in favor of evil.

    The U.S. and the world faces many problems, some of which can be dealt with a little more effectively once the adults in the room get back in charge.

    But the bigger picture reveals the predicaments of Overshoot (most notably the end of the era of cheap energy) and the Decline of the American Empire. Some people would call this a Long Emergency. While there are many paths forward, “business as usual” is not one of them. I don’t see how RFK, Jr would be any more effective than Orange Man at bringing about any meaningful changes in DC, though of course things will be different after four years more of decline.

    Predictions are the easy part – timing is the Bitch. U.S. government policy shrinks from the international stage with each new challenge, and the rest of the world is cheering it on while focus retreats to domestic issues. It’s looking more likely every day that a national “election” will be swapped out for a dose of martial law – a new side to the Long Emergency.

    Many of us were hoping to ski down the Bunny Slope as our standard of living fell, but fate looks like it took us off that trail to a Black Diamond section of the mountain. The question now is whether or not we steer off a cliff or tumble intact to the bottom.

          Did you ever think that the field he has to pick from are all Deep Staters and that they will favor the Deep State any time issues arise.

          Trump needed loyalty to offset the bias of the entire Deep State apparatus. He never got it from anyone.

          I think that should concern you about the state of the government of this country and not Trump.

          No one on CFN has come up with a real way of offsetting the monopoly of the Deep State in this country.

          Voting for anyone but Trump is a huge step backwards.

    Here in Canada we have been shackled to a minority government by a “third party” left wing NDP party. Do not allow any Democrat to suck votes away from Trump. A Democrat, even one reborn as an Independent, is not good for any country, let alone the United States.

    Please, for the sake of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, vote for Donald Trump.

    Climate change, illegal immigration, 30 Trillion dollar debt, LGBTQ….., WW3, uniparty, rise of China, economic chaos. You don’t need any more reasons to start with a clean slate. Massive house cleaning is the only strategy. Trump tried once and was ambushed by traitors. Once bitten. Twice shy.

    I suppose you are trying to be helpful ?

    But……….

    Grrr , unfortunately I cannot remember the guys name , the website , or the title of the essay.

    But quite possibly my all – time favorite essay on the subject of criminal justice was the very very long essay this guy wrote on the issue of why ,

    when you are asked , ” Do you understand the charges against you ? ”

    Your ALWAYS honest , legitimate , matter – of – fact answer should be ;

    ” No , how the fuck could I possibly know or understand ? ”

    To hopefully write a somewhat briefer essay —

    A decade or so ago some trivia freek in Congress asked the GAO ,

    ” How many Federal crimes are there anyway ? ”

    The ESTIMATE of the GAO was 10,000 + .

    In other ways , or in the broader picture —

    The Bible says , ” Love your neighbor ”

    It DOES NOT say , ” Love your neighbor AND THEN YOUR NEIGHBOR WILL LOVE YOU. ”

    ( Near as I can tell anyways. )

    Maybe there is a reason for that omission ?

    In the Miranda warning it says ,

    ” … anything you say can , and will , be used AGAINST you …. ”

    However ,

    It does NOT say ,

    ” … anything you say can , and will , be used FOR you …. ”

    Long story ,

    but there certainly IS a reason for that omission.

    Finally , the very job of higher court judges is interpretation ,

    because the objective fact is that lawyers themselves don’t know what the law is.

    Meanwhile in Stockholm, Greta’s hometown, gang warfare rages, with 3 people gunned down on the streets last weekend.

    Th situation is so serious that the Prime Minister has deployed the army to deal with the open combat that has overtaken Stockholm streets. Unlike in London, these Stockholm gangsters aren’t f#kkng around with knives and machetes; weapons from Ukraine, purchased on the dark web, keep these African & Arab gangs well armed.

    Swedes seem surprised that their ‘Universal Nation’ project isn’t working out so good. What did they expect?

      weapons from Ukraine … that were originally bought and paid for by your debt.

          I told you, in conjunction with many other factors, the evidence for completely distrusting the medical profession has been rock solid for as long as I’ve been alive.

          I doubted covid would be anything significant from the beginning… it was just another bs medical drumbeat for $.

          And RNA tech with no testing?

            Apologies that I missed that you answered me earlier.

            Good for you that you figured it out while most willingly took a jab or two or three or four.

            ***
            Why did you not simply say so when I was convinced that all GLT-1s are jabbed?

            ***
            So … you have had distrust in the medical profession for your whole life but also believe that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone and that Jack Ruby gained access to permanently quiet Oswald in the Dallas PD’s basement by his … cunning?

            Well, I also told you before (basically) that the extent of my study into JFK’s assassination was watching the Oliver Stone film once and assuming some shit was up but not really caring what.

            So, I can’t say I’m convinced it was govt, or mafia, or anything particularly. And I’m not really worried about it.

            I don’t even know the details of the story.

            You were accusing me of being jabbed based on terribly weak evidence and logic, and I wasn’t going to honor the accusation with further conversation on it or denials.

            You were accusing me of being jabbed based on terribly weak evidence and logic, and I wasn’t going to honor the accusation with further conversation on it or denials.

            No. I was accusing you of lying about being jabbed on evidence and a scientific theory.

            The evidence was that you were caught red-handed lying to inexplicably run cover for TPTB in a mass murder investigation. Liars lie. Everyone knows that.

            Then you lied about Ann Wilson‘s eyewitness testimony (again to inexplicably run cover for TPTB) so you were caught twice lying and, therefore, your word doesn’t mean sh!t, Gus.

            Finally, my scientific theory is that all GLT-1s are jabbed. While you disprove “all” (if you’re not lying yet again), I still believe in my theory (that it rounds to 100%) but I require much more data before my theory can be either proved or disproved.

            ***
            Anyone who has no clue about JFK (i.e. a coup d’etat in the USA) should not be arguing black ops at all. JFK is the black op gold-standard. You arguing black ops is like me arguing microbiology.

          • gustafson.robert.22 October 2, 2023 at 10:42 pm #

            It’s derived from the words “ho” and “ax” and means “something slutty, debauched and dangerous that hath not honest nor good intentions towards thee.”

          • OG October 2, 2023 at 10:49 pm #

            How many dead, Gus? You brought up Ann Williams’ eyewitness testimony that 10,000 were trapped trying to escape Lahaina and that she was the last one out before Vegas Turkey-Shoot “Incident Commander” John Pelletier barricaded the rest in the kill zone. [Ann Williams’ eyewitness testimony is the gold-standard of evidence, btw.]

            You foolishly hadn’t realized the trap that you stepped into, Gus. I then asked you, “How many dead?” and then you rage-quit like a little girl. Sad but true.

            My mental health has no bearing on you lying and running cover for TPTB and rage-quitting in order to cling to your psychological blanky. Ad homs against me change none of that, liar.

            FYI – Little girls argue by calling facts, analysis and logic that they don’t like “crazy.’ Men are supposed be above that.

            ***
            I said, “Welcome back, Gus! Peace, dude.” but you then disrespected me and my well wishes. That’s what happened, liar.

            Bad idea, Gus. God does not take kindly when members of His flock pray for the detriment of others.

            How many dead, Gus? That’s where we were in our discussion when you refused to answer and, instead, rage-quit like a little girl.

            You were adamant that 10,000 were barricaded in the kill zone yet the official story claims that only 97 people died!

            How can that be? How many dead?

    Developments in the Malone saga, as reported by Dr. Peter Breggin and Ginger Breggin:

    httpX://gingerbreggin.substack.com/p/judge-dismisses-robert-malone-vs

    The legal doings reported here by the Breggins are quite interesting and a big weird!

    For me, Malone pretty much discredited himself when he jumped on the Desmet bandwagon during the Joe Rogan interview. And then totally discredited himself when he sued the Breggins for $25 million because Dr. Peter Breggin criticized Desmet’s theory and, by extension, Malone’s espousal of it.

    The Breggins report that the judge in the current case stated:

    ” Nonetheless, the Court notes that Plaintiff [Dr. Malone] has filed repeated defamation cases14 and is represented by a lawyer [Steven Biss] who has sued Defendant [The Washington Post] three times in the past three years.15 And if Plaintiff [Dr. Malone] continues to bring defamation actions like those that have been dismissed, there will come a time when his lawsuits might fairly be deemed frivolous and awarding attorney fees is appropriate.”

    So, things not looking good for Malone, and I hope after he loses his ridiculous case against the Breggins, the judge orders him to pay their legal expenses.

    Possibly the next case will give Dr. Breggin a good platform for explaining what he finds so very wrong with the Desmet “maff formation” thesis—a view with which I agree.

    ” Liking her is just you being perverse. You like her because normal people hate her. ”

    People like Joan of Arc because she is butch , a Medieval cross – dresser .

    Or Lynda Carter Wonder Woman , or Xena Warrior Princess.

    And , yes , there was something of that in my introduction to her.

    But then I read her testimony in her Heresy trial ,

    and the testimony of her posthumous rehabilitation trial.

    If you believe it , she never wanted to be a soldier , hated being a soldier , and hers was a brief and profoundly miserable life.

    And I suspect her canonization took nearly 500 years because of foot -dragging , and not on account of her fashion choices.

    But if it is true that in Heaven the first are last , and the last are first ,

    then she deserved the blood – dripping crown of saint.

    Even though she was in fact my introduction to the Catholic Church ,

    still I stooped lower for a patron saint and Confirmation name ,

    the patron saint of Lepers . ( You might as well say Lepers at any rate. )

    I can’t say you don’t have me pegged.

    Anyways ,

    If Greta is sincere , I feel sorry for her.

      I was merely (a) pointing out, in a somewhat lighthearted way (that was the intention anyway, but we know what happens to intentions), that there is a book called (with at least a modicum of humour) ‘Greta’s Homework’, which contains information it would be useful to pass on to Greta and to anyone else who falls for her schtick (which is not her schtick in the first place), and (b) linking that thought to the notion that you like her, which you are perfectly entitled to do.

      Why that has anything to do with you being a ‘diabolically evil bitch’ or indeed any other appraisal of your character that I did not remotely make, entirely escapes me. But then, the relation of a number of your responses to what people said that provoked the response also escapes me, presumably because I’m not that clever. As you say, ‘oh, well, such is life’. Perhaps you are flattered by the notion that people think you are terrible, even when they don’t? I don’t know. Again, ‘oh well, such is life’.

    Why would anybody, who is completely uninvolved in the crime itself, lie to run cover for mass murder? Is pride that important to them? If so: Yuck!

    I never understood one’s pride getting in the way of the truth. I always thought that it makes one look “crazy.” Of course, I always preferred to be right but also always understood that I am human and will, sometimes, be wrong. Trying to cover for the latter with prideful lies turns an error into a sin.

    Some people (e.g. Antonio Salieri) have no logic and are, instead, all irrational emotion. For example, if a messenger informs Antonio of a reality that she finds threatening, she ceases critical thinking and gets angry at the messenger for “threatening” her – even though the messenger obviously has absolutely no control over the reported reality that she finds threatening.

        Though apparently my perception is a minority one .

        The him vs. Her I don’t find particularly significant.

        And my peculiar take – away from it is that typically school is not about two people learning stuff.

        It’s about money and power again.

      Nick Alvear has offered an interesting interpretation for the workings of the US government since the 1800s and a plan concocted by Trump and his allies to undermine the power of the Deep State. He used the terms blackmail and white mail to try to indicate that Trump’s plan all along was to use those “traitors” in his administration to further his modus operandi.

      Trump had nothing when he hit the White House except his own MAGA power base and his ability to outthink his opponents and “Make a Deal”.

      I think Alvear concludes that a military based coup of the Deep State, both here and abroad, could stop the power base of the Deep State. All the finagling with foreign powers was probably based on promises by Trump to undo the power base of the globalists and their US counterparts with the military complex. Use the MIC to undo the Liberal stranglehold on DC.

      The Deep State saw it coming, they knew that Trump using the resentful union based Rust belt to win the 2016 election, might win the executive power in DC. The entire Deep State, including the most vocal group, the RINOs, immediately went after Trump, headed up by the MSM crowd. Trump did not put up with their shit, attacking them with what small power he had. The abrasive Trump, a term coined by the MSM and successfully, was portrayed to the American public as a sex starved alpha male creep that all decent people should fear. That Trump was a do nothing president that was undermining democracy. Unfortunatly, the MSM blitz worked as the people bought their line of crap enough to swing 2020. The Deep State knew that if he won, a lame duck Trump would start ripping up the Deep State using his plan.

      Alvear thinks that somehow Biden is in the Trump fold because he has not undone some of the EOs Trump initiated to create the military as an opposition force to the Deep State. I sincerely doubt this. Biden has kept some of the military readiness in place to offset what I believe Trump was up to.

      Girded by a sympathetic military, how was Trump going to affect the removal of power from DC? By supporting a revolt by the MAGA crowd, either through the ballot box or with arms as necessary. The threat of a conservative backlash from the people to regain control of the government is the biggest fear of the Deep State.

      So the DS put 100% of their effort, day to day, into destroying Trump and it continues today. They know that any political group in energized by a hero figure and to get total control of that conservative wing, the MAGA crowd, they need to destroy Trump in the MAGA eyes.

      Biden’s Mob has taken the tack that instead of shutting the MIC moves of Trump, they would just remove its effects. Trump wanted a strong military to disable the Deep State, the Left has just disabled the military’s ability to do much of anything. The Deep State has the ability to fire up the military if need be, but keep it at a low level day to day to prevent the domestic conservative groups from firing up.

      One more idea, just lie with Lincoln, the only way for Trump to undo the damage caused by the Deep State is to wield more power than they have.
      This will appear to be a grab for autocratic power and will be used, not will be, is being used to smear Trump. If the people show support for Trump in 2024, acknowledging the corruption of the Deep State, the fears the Deep State have about the people will come to pass.

      One thing is for sure, if Trump wins and can force out the Deep State, the US will turn back to its Constitutional base. He will have to acquire folks that support the cause, not just him personally. His first term was pathetic in this aspect. So a big question is, where does he get these people?

      That is question number one in determining whether this country stands a chance of surviving.

      Okay, OG, your turn.

        Just when you thought Q fantasies had finally perished, another showman resurects the promise for another rinse through the grifting cycle.

        I can’t say this forcefully enough: the USA is not in control of the narrative. It would behoove one to drop any western centric POV, including distractions like elections, popular trends, social conflicts, you name it, it’s irrelevant at this point in time.

        The future is being determined by blood and iron in a faraway land, exactly the way political conflict has always been resolved – by force of arms.

        Elite thinkers correctly forecast energy scarcity would collapse the private credit money system from which they derived their power and control. It was absolutely imperative to conquer new lands in order to secure new sources of natural resources.

        And for the 3rd time (some include Sweded in the 1700s for a 4th time), those who coveted the vast landscape have failed once again to gain control of the massive land island.

        So it goes; the key is to understand what this means in real terms, not just to us, but the entire world. Trump, Jr, it doesn’t matter who/what is “in charge” of N America. We can scream and stomp our feet until the cows come home, but it won’t effect the future as it is now cast.

          @ mitchellc:

          I’d say the monetary system/financial system is collapsing due to fraud, rather than primarily due to resource constraints. I.e., Russia may have a shit-ton of resources, but there is not reason why they couldn’t be obtained through honest trade relations.

        Thanks again, JAZ. I was adamant to get your take on this documentary because I knew it would be an informative gold mine.

        ***
        I must admit that I buy what Nick Alvear is selling more than do you. I believe that this entire thing was a massive sting operation. I believe that President Trump remains Commander in Chief. I believe that he united the entire world against the swamp. I believe that he confidently now speaks of the executions of Mitch McConnell and General Mark Milley for treason because he knows that’s exactly where we are headed (pun intended). The same with his claims that NBC News will be tried for treason.

        I believe that we are, right now, truly witnessing The Greatest Show on Earth.

    • Anthea October 5, 2023 at 3:23 pm #

      @ OG:

      I am pretty sure that most displays of emotion–or claims that they feel/felt a particular emotion–are faked. I’m not sure when I came to this conclusion, but I have many examples. I remember one of my old bosses at work telling me that, “We were worried about you,” when I didn’t show up on a particular day. I’m quite sure no one at that workplace was worried about me, least of all my boss, who hated me. (Since that emotion was authentic, he never displayed it.)

      Then there was the time that our city cop came to my door and said, “Okay, don’t laugh, but your neighbor says she is afraid of your duck.”

      A couple of years ago, I encoutered an old-lady acquaintance at the store, and she behaved as if she were terrified of me because I wasn’t wearing a mask. I don’t know if she felt fear or not, but I’d doubt it. It was probably just theatrics, performed in the hope that I’d don a mask to soothe her fears.

      Most people, most of the time, affect to feel emotions opportunistically–to try to get their way or to produce a desired reaction from others.

      Do women do this more often than men? Probably. Men aren’t allowed to display their emotions (with the exceptions of anger or cheering the sports-ball team) nearly as much as women are. Women are allowed to display a wider range of emotions.

      On the other hand, I’m not entirely sure that men do this less often. They are constantly expressing irritation (low-level anger) about everything–to the point where it becomes background noise. E.g., if you’re in a car with a guy, he will be griping about other drivers the whole time. If you are in a store or restaurant, he will be griping about the prices the whole time. Or he will quickly become impatient about anything and everything. As with most female displays of emotion, this behavior is opportunistic.

      Once when my cousin came to visit me, she brought her boyfriend along. After about an hour, he began impatiently pacing the floor–a hint that he wanted to leave. I suggested that, if he wanted to go for a walk, he could take a stroll outside, but this made no impression on him. So my cousin left early, because the guy was making us uncomfortable. This was clearly a learned behavior, and essentially a fake emotion, opportunistically deployed. He had nowhere to go and could have found some way to occupy himself if he was bored.

    @ Jarek again .

    IF Luther was really concerned about Indulgences.

    I’m not so sure.

    Well , at least it seems that at least partly because , ” Luther slept here ” a castle is in top notch shape in Germany.

    wartburg.de

    In my book , you can’t have too many German castles in tip – top shape.

    Though , actually , I would rather not pay a visit. Photos are sufficient.

    As I said , if I was going to get off my ass and go somewhere , I suppose it would be to an abandoned railroad shack in remotest Siberia in the off – season.

    • JohnAZ October 3, 2023 at 9:23 am #

      Indulgences are given by governing bodies to people who are too damned stupid to understand what they are giving up or even the credibility of the claim.

      Hmmm,

      Sorta like the BS being fed to potential immigrants and the gimme machine inside the US.

      People will drive all the way across town, using 5$ in gas to get a free cosmetic case for buying makeup they do not need. The lure of “FREE” is irresistible.

      Just like the promise of a purgatory “get out of jail card”.

      The Asshole was smart and made some good points. People thought he was for the People and would support them throwing off their peasantry. Marty replied, I never said any such thing. Cut them down like dogs.

      He also had a Rasputinesque side, saying sin openly and enjoy it. Rasputin was better: Sin greatly that you might be saved.

      Marty married a pervy nun.

      The Enemies of the Church had a habit of disappearing. They were never much for open debate. Luther agreed to a debate on Catholic turf. His students begged him not to go. But he was adamant. So they went with him – in full armor, armed with maces, axes, and sword. The Catholic authorities were caught off guard – and the debate went on as planned.

  75. SoftStarLight October 3, 2023 at 2:43 am #

    I’m heartened to see that you remain so positive Mr. K amidst this absolute vortex of negativity. So many allow it to just sweep them from off the face of the Earth. How is it even possible to keep someone off of the ballot when we are supposed to live in a democracy? And secondly, how is it that states like New York and California can determine presidential elections by determining who is and who isn’t on the ballot? That would be amazing if RFK Jr. runs as an Independent candidate. It would likely give him a big breakout moment because it seems to be a terrifying prospect for Vanity Fair. So the media wouldn’t be able to ignore him and marginalize him and neither would the DNC. It will be exciting to see what happens!

      Your problem is a function of perspective ie promises are optimistic, while reality if negativity.

      Why not reverse the process? Reality is upbeat, good for both your mental and physical health, whereas fantasy is a dangerous, unhealthy addiction.

      In this context, JHK’s bi-weekly essays are an exercise in religous fantasy, an appeal to the masses hoping for a “happy ending”, no different than the desire to live on in heaven.

      But look at the side effects of this conflict with truth both on commenters here and the broader population at large. Is this healthy? Of course not; depression runs rampant.

      Now, how about dealing with reality, the fact that certain people spend their entire lives competing over power and prestige. That they control government, finance and media, using those tools to enslave others to further their own desires and ends.

      OK, how is this positive? Because, once you understand the truth, you can begin to examine variables. And what may those be? Well, no one ever achieves 100% control, if for no other reason that at least a few others have the same ambitions.

      And this is where perpetual conflict comes from, eternal war. But, since you cannot effect that fact, what you can do is evaluate the odds of success for any particular party.

      That’s where the fun lies, the game playing and analysis. Unless you’re a predator, you will never actually gain any power, but you can bet on the sidelines, having a healthy outlook on life and positive expectation for the future.

        I don’t have any problems Mitch but think you for being concerned about me. I am not specifically negative. I just wanted to express my thankfulness to Mr. K that he remains an oasis of positive outlook in the midst of a desert filled with negative takes. I don’t necessarily think that Mr. K’s posts are religious appeals though I always love the heavy symbology and analogies to complex ideas and metaphysics. I have very strong feelings and idealisms for sure and try to leverage power centers as much as I possibly can in my little ole way. Otherwise I am spectating as much as the next person. I appreciate your outlook and perspectives though. It is good to know how others are thinking and seeing things to know where I am at on the reality spectrum.

          “This is, by the way, the reason I report political events in the world. It is not to promote any political parties but to understand how the world is transitioning from Babylon to the Kingdom. If we preach the Gospel, people will repent not only for their personal sins but for the sins of their nation as well. If there are massive changes of heart brought about by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, it will change the very form of governments around the world, because the people will demand righteous government.

          This is not just about getting saved so we can go to heaven when we die (or in a rapture). This is about redeeming the earth and working to put all things under the feet of Christ. It is about restoring to God that which is His by right of creation. The goal is to see the fulfillment of Revelation 21:24, which speaks of the New Jerusalem, saying,

          “The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it.”

      IF you want the end of the Deep State control of the people, you need much much more than RFK, Jr. Just having a history of allegiance to the DNC disqualifies a candidate IMHO.

      Hooking up with Trump’s MAGA troops is a have to have for any Democratic deserter, RFK, Jr. Manchin or Sinema.

    For someone to use “jab status” (guessed at) and a pretext for verbal attacks and hostile verbal “jabs” against other commenters who may or may not have had any jabs is really beyond the pale, IMO, and the perp of this bullying should stop it.

    Bottom line, it is nosy in the extreme.

      Islander, good statement.

      The risk assessment used in 2020 to determine the need for a vaxx was totally different than today and I am living proof as I have become a staunch opponent to any form of mRNA vaccine.

      In my case, the disease itself, last November, did damage to my immune system which I hope slowly abates but like everything else, who knows.

      Covid is a perfect example of the adage,

      • JohnAZ October 3, 2023 at 9:40 am #

        BTW, OG.

        Alvears believes that Covid was an intentional escape from a lab in Ukraine, not China. He also believes that the vaxx and the virus itself were developed at the same time.

        I agree with him on this one 100%. Fauci has just spent 100% of his time trying to cover up the globalist desire to control the population by a controlled release of a “just lethal enough” virus. I believe the over reaction by the Deep State is because once released, it scared the hell out of Fauci and his crew what might happen. He scared the heck out of Trump. Pence was in on it.

        The vaxx was too convenient, too convenient for an mRNA crowd to try out their magic bullet and too convenient for Fauci et al after opening Pandora’s box.

      You are even more corrupt than you are boring, dull and predictable, Isles.

      Facts:
      1) Gus and I were having a discussion about a recent suspected mass murder.
      2) Gus kept red herringing our discussion for weeks with ad hom attacks on my health issues. [i.e. He put our health on the table, not me.]
      3) I have developed a hypothesis and a 30-second scientific test (GLT) in order to prove or disprove its validity (i.e. science).
      4) Gus took the scientific test.
      5) Based on the results of that scientific test and its underlying hypothesis, I speculated that Gus had been COVID-jabbed and I was in my right to do so since he had already constantly put my health issues on our discussion table.
      6) GA then informed me that Gus had already publicly proclaimed on CFN that he was unjabbed.
      7) That makes Gus’ jab status twice-on-the-table valid and relevant.
      8) Additionally, during this same discussion, Gus had also been twice caught red-handed lying in his inexplicable efforts to run cover for mass murder during a mass-murder investigation!

    An Ohio high school student collapsed on the football field and died – soon after being introduced as a contender for Homecoming Queen.
    Breanne McKean, 17, was a senior at Mapleton High School in Ashland. She died Friday of an undisclosed ‘medical emergency,’ according to a statement from the school district.

      I had to look that up {grin}.

      Actually, one of the smartest things I’ve done in the last few years (besides rejecting anything related to cv/vax), was to undertake a spanish immersion program.

      I correctly forecast the nation wide demographic change being intentionally engineered, and realized not only are whites were going to cease having any influence, but would also be erased from the historical record.

      As we can see happening this very hour, military aged males are streaming into the country. Fun fact: did you know illegals have to register with the selective service?

      So, just like during the Civil War with Irish immigrants, now you know who the MIC will be using for either domestic or foreign conflicts.

      Being functionally fluent in Spanish sets me up for all kinds of interesting cross border activity, including emerging political movements here in Calif.

    JHK,
    Please note that the best pollster (Baris) is showing that RFKjr will take more votes away from Trump than from Biden. Trump drives me crazy with his continued touting of Warped Speed and 15 days to stop the spread, an abysmal record of appointing Deep State saboteurs–and failing to fire them promptly, and on and on and on…

    With any luck, there won’t be an election and we can get down to solving things at the level at which they really need to be solved.

      It’s rather disheartening knowing that so many people honestly believe that electing their rogue candidate and plugging him into the corrupt governmental leadership apparatus is going to somehow rescue this country.

      It is beyond a government fix.
      A change of party leadership fix.

      I’m not saying to throw out the constitution, but any new government needs to add a handful of reformative amendments that will weed out deep-state, corporate, monied influence, and assaults on freedom of information/speech.

      The party of chaos is ensuring that the spiraling lawlessness will lead the large confluence of leftist and progressive voters in the population/vote dense urban areas to welcome their tyrannical version of panoptic law and order.
      This present government wants full spectrum dominance.
      All of it.

            We are in somewhat uncharted waters.

            That is why I said long ago that if these psychopaths intend to carry out the Great Reset, and they really mean it, then there is no alternative but to move toward a revolutionary situation.

            When the aggressor won’t back off and the mask fully drops, there is no solution.

            Deep down this is what scares the black pillers and the libnuts who think they are part of the power structure.

            I want a Trump win for maximum chaos, to perhaps actually trigger that revolution, or just create an environment in which things don’t hold together enough for elites to have enough control to accomplish anything.

      R. Lee Wright could not be more completely wrong, OG. What he has described is what MAGA would like to return the US (and Western Civ in general) to – the tyranny of the 51%. In a truly ‘good’ democracy, the rights of minorities ARE protected – by law. However, the fascist ‘Mob’ (led currently by Trump, Bannon & Carlson) insists that ‘The Law’ can only be applied to ‘others’ and the transgressions of the ‘elite’ (stale, pale male sexual predators and fraudsters) should be entirely ignored. To which I can only say GFY!

        • OG October 3, 2023 at 2:52 pm #

          Truly my Sociology hypothesis that a strong correlation exists between one’s GLT score and one’s words and actions (man or mouse) as well as my scientific approach and method to prove/disprove this theory is far more pertinent to CFN than are Pete’s poos, Q.

          I am investigating a mass murder, for goodness sakes!

          In fact, JHK himself has indicated that we are gaslit. I am scientifically quantifying his assertion with this, my, Sociology research.

          ***
          If the GLT does not display anything relevant about the subject, why, do you think, everyone (ex. BK, Gus & I) is so very bashful about simply sharing their score with us?

          Why hide your score if it is meaningless anyway?

    Trump is more likely to go down for good before the election than Biden, and i doubt that will happen either. Cheerleaders for both sides engage in the same wishful thinking that never comes to pass – “He’s going down for sure THIS time!” We’ll believe it when we see it.

    Kennedy will be no remedy. The constitution you cite had clauses since Day 1 limiting the extent of democracy allowable in your country such that the peolple would never truly rule. Just give ’em enough to think they do. Nowhere has that fiction worked like in the USA.

    It’s a fiction, and has been all along, true democracy in the USA. Meanwhile, i’m not even sure it matters so much now. We’re all swirling the drain anyway on this ball. It’s all disintegrating regardless of who is in office, and meanwhile the rot is way too deep to be addressed. Enjoy the spectacle is about all that’s left for the proles now. Try to avoid being too deeply embedded. Too late for most where that is concerned of course, that’s a strategy must be persued from earliest adulthood with a level of awareness of context most don’t possess at that stage, possibly ever. Most folks just falling into the same old trap they depend upon you falling into so’s they got you by the junk. Children, for instance.

    This just in: House Speaker McCarthy removed as Speaker of the House.

    So what does this mean?

    Good and bad. If McCarthy wasn’t in fact a good speaker, then there’s a chance the new one could be better. But at the same time, this action shows the American public how fucked up the government is, and may get the citizenry even more angry. Even worse, it weakens the US’s position in the world. American’s need some sense of order.

    Lastly, it is possible that the new speaker is even worse than McCarthy. The GOP’s reputation for being a serious party has taken a hit.

      From capitalist fat-cats and war hawks to Evangelunatics to Joe Sixpack working stiffs with a dash of no-more-war and fiscal liibertarianism.

      The Democrats made their switch more seamlessly.
      They replaced working poor with criminals and gender confused who were cover for the tech and finance billionaires.
      They replaced the peacenik hippies and radicals with the graduated communism of the billionaire elite (wealth and freedom for me, rent and rules for you).
