    I’m sure you’re asking yourself: what’s up with the company CEOs like Anheuser-Busch’s Brendan Whitworth, Target’s Brian Cornell, and North Face’s Todd Spaletto? Did they green-light the disastrous transgender-activist Pride Month marketing campaigns that are suddenly wrecking their businesses? Or do these things just happen down the chain-of-command while the top dogs are otherwise occupied, knocking golf balls around or reviewing their stock options’ strike prices?

    I’ll tell you what you’re not seeing and hearing: the red-faced shrieking in the board rooms as boycotts kill sales and directors face the wrath of the share-holders. Are the capital market overseers, Vanguard and BlackRock, stifling the commotion as they carry out a controlled demolition op to cover-up the misdeeds of a political cabal? It was one thing when Bud Light hitched trans “influencer” Dylan Mulvaney to the beer wagon in place of the traditional Clydesdale horses. After all, every state has a drinking age, though it’s pretty astounding that anyone at Anheuser-Busch thought “Ms.” Mulvaney’s cringy Instagram antics would sell beer to grown men moving appliances and fixing pot-holes.

    It’s another thing, in the case of Target, to aim sexually-loaded gear to little children, for instance a line of T-shirts that proclaim “Satan Respects Pronouns” made by one Erik Carnell’s Abprallen company out of London. “Mr.” Carnell expounded on that idea on his company’s website (now taken down):

      Satanists don’t actually believe in Satan, he is merely used as a symbol of passion, pride, and liberty. He means to you what you need him to mean. So, for me, Satan is hope, compassion, equality, and love. So, naturally, Satan respects pronouns. He loves all LGBT+ people. I went with a variation of Baphomet for this design, a deity who themself is a mixture of genders, beings, ideas, and existences.”

Baphomet, the goat-headed demon associated with Satanism and the occult

      Would it surprise you to learn that children well beneath the age of puberty are not inclined to think about sex at all? In a well-ordered society that recognizes children as different from adults, they don’t. And if something sexual comes to their attention, they are generally perplexed by it. Unless they’re born into an era when adults are busy erasing boundaries, guard-rails, and cultural inhibitions, in which case I must imagine that young children exposed to, say, pornography in a chaotic household find it traumatically sinister. So, why the gleeful celebration about sexualizing children now?

     I’ll tell you why: because we are living in a very badly-ordered society these days, a society in which anything goes and nothing matters, which is a poor principle for civilization. It’s the same principle that has people shitting all over the sidewalks of San Francisco, looting Walgreens stores in broad daylight, pushing ineffective and unsafe vaccines (and lying about it), and arresting people for thought crimes. It’s a degenerate society. Morally bankrupt. Wicked.

    You might ask, how did it get that way? The concise answer is that a broken business model for daily life and a collapsing economy have so disordered millions of minds that values are seen as having no value. The scaffold for truth, beauty, honor, dignity, courage, prudence generosity, etc., folded some time ago, in slow-motion, so we didn’t notice.

     The keepers of our culture have replaced it with a tacky system of ritual virtue-signaling fakery that they don’t really believe in, that persists simply because the moral vacuum it stands for provokes such unbearable anxiety. The main lesson of the recent Durham Report — missed by even the most punctilious observers — is that our country does not want to fix itself, indeed the whole broken apparatus of fixing it is in the hands of the people who broke it.

     This epic negligence leaves the doors wide open for the broad range of lower-order criminal mischief we’re seeing expressed all around us. Now I will venture into shadowland.  There is a rumor floating around the Internet that this seemingly coordinated campaign to sexualize children and initiate them into marginal behaviors was started to soften up the public for forthcoming shocking revelations contained in the much-whispered-about Jeffrey Epstein archive of videos that show eminent international figures caught in compromising sexual situations that include sexual acts with children.

    I wouldn’t commit to saying there’s anything to that, but there have been an awful lot of signs and portents pointing in that direction, and so I also wouldn’t dismiss it altogether. There can be little doubt that the videos exist, or did exist — we know that Epstein’s various mansions were rigged to the eaves with cameras, and that he was an “asset” of more than one nation’s intel service trafficking in blackmail — and I’d expect that there are at least a few copies of the videos out there, just like there are many copies of Hunter Biden’s laptop hard-drive out there.

     There’s something definitely programmatic about the way the drag queens were rolled out into the kiddie korners the past year. It doesn’t feel organic, shall we say, but rather directed, like a sinister grand opera. And the effort to enlist and initiate schoolchildren into a psychodrama of hyperbolic sexual confusion looks absolutely orchestrated.

     What we might be seeing is the convergence of a world-beating political scandal with an economy-killing financial crisis that will destroy the entire post-WW2 armature of money and credit. That event would usher in a period of appalling turbulence in our everyday life, severing supply chains, killing businesses, and disturbing every imaginable social arrangement as well as public order. If that comes to pass, and it’s looking likely, then that will be the last we hear about personal pronouns and trans influencers for a thousand years.

    After hearing about this I finally looked into it recently. Yes, the After School Satan Club is a real thing, and it is nationwide.

    Dig the cognitive dissonance in their mission statement:

    “Proselytization is not our goal, and we’re not interested in converting children to Satanism. After School Satan Clubs will focus on free inquiry and rationalism, the scientific basis for which we know what we know about the world around us.”

    Oh no…..we’re not proselytizing! Not converting anyone either.

    Yeah. Got it.

    • JohnAZ May 26, 2023 at 11:52 am #

      Satan club = I hate God?

      What did God do to cause the animosity? Maybe just the admonition,

      Behave yourself.

      Why has sex, drugs, slavery, anti church activity, antisemitism become in fashion with these folks, and why are they indoctrinating kids to get new prospects.

      Parents, get your education systems under control, or get your kids out of Mob controlled public education.

      • neurodoc May 26, 2023 at 1:19 pm #

        At this point, anyone still sending their kids to a public school, with very very few exceptions, is moronic, out of touch to the point of living under a rock, or too poor to have an alternative (this is an argument for vouchers). I know of well off physicians who send their kids to school and justify it by statements such as ‘I’m going to get something out of the real estate taxes I pay.’ These people will get what they deserve.

      • JohnAZ May 26, 2023 at 12:33 pm #

        At war inside every single one of us.

        God has been represented as all powerful, one of the greatest theological question is,

        If he is all powerful, why does Satan exist?.

        Another interesting question,

        If God represents good and Satan evil, Who is above both of them as the judge?

        Does God have a God?

        • Lyndy33 May 26, 2023 at 12:57 pm #

          There are many questions about the nature of God. The idea of a man figure in the clouds is probably not a good one. If one believes in karma as a nature of God, that too is probably not a good one. On and on ….

          • Yirgach May 26, 2023 at 3:22 pm #

            Look at from the evolutionary point of view. When humans gained consciousness, at least at some level, they gradually became aware of the consequences of their actions and those of others. This dichotomy evolved into the legend of good and evil. Having a few gods involved helped it along, one way or another. Or it all could be a product of Intelligent design or a VR program. Your choice, just enjoy it while you’re here.

        • pyrrhus May 26, 2023 at 1:07 pm #

          Satan was created by Man, to explain the man-made evil that exists in this world..Since this life is about spiritual progress, we have both end of the spectrum….
          Satan is Aleister Crowley, who wrote that you should give reign to any and all desires and urges you have….Zero morality.

        • VoiceOfReason May 26, 2023 at 3:31 pm #

          There is evil because we have free will, and all creatures have imperfect reason (some more imperfect than others). The bible says (with some ambiguity) that Satan is a fallen angel, probably the most perfect and powerful angel; however, still imperfect enough to choose to oppose God.

        • Jimpa May 27, 2023 at 5:39 pm #

          Believe it or not, there are good answers to these questions. It has to do with the nature of man, and free will. The archangel turning into Satan can be explained by his relationship with mankind.

          A little unclear on the concept, maybe?

          If this site has revealed ANYTHING to you, it’s surely that human beings are incredibly thick-headed, pleasure-oriented, and lazy.

          The only thing that they understand is PAIN.

          God allows evil to exist precisely pain is the only thing that might wake them up.
          .
          God sends crosses to wake people up from their slumber, and come back to Him.

        Paula doesn’t believe in good and evil. There’s only correct ideology vs incorrect. You can do anything you want to those who believe wrongly. It’s all “good” because they’re “evil”.

        So she does believe, sort of. Her religion of Communism dictates who is good and who is evil – usually turning the truth of it on its head. Why not? After all it’s a false religion.

      Governor Gruesome

      The latest reports show that over half the streets of San Francisco are covered with human excrement (AKA s+++). Not just the sidewalks but smeared on the walls and boarded up store fronts. The City has employed a full time cleanup crew wearing hazmat suits and using a pressure washer, but the s+++ just flows in behind them.

      Governor Gruesome offered free plane tickets and hotel vouchers to street people from Calcutta, funded by leftover Blackskin compensation grants, but he couldn’t find a single taker. They all said it was just too dirty for humans to live in. LOL.

      There is a simple, natural solution to the problem. Fund a billion-dollar crash program to breed 10 billion flies. Release them in Market Square and they will take care of the S+++ problem in short order. By this act of creating problem solving, Gruesome will have demonstrated that he is fully qualified to be the next President of the US of A.

      • ThorsHammer May 26, 2023 at 10:23 am #

    • abbybwood May 26, 2023 at 1:28 pm #

      It is interesting to consider that Zelensky used to parade around the stage in a tight PVC outfit singing and playing the piano with his dick while snorting mountains of cocaine back stage.

      This is the guy meeting with heads of state and the pope while wearing his signature brownish-green sweatsuit. Word was that he and BoJo enjoyed doing coke together.

      It seems that every time Zelensky enters the stage he is begging for more money and more weapons. And European countries plus the rest of the west just keep giving him checks. And now these weapons are turning up in Iraq (where the US intends to build a new base!) and other places. Is the Zelensky regime being used as a CIA ratline to funnel weapons to the usual terrorists the U.S. likes to cozy up to?

      Ahhh…..Ukraine. The most corrupt country in Europe with its Bioweapons labs and Nazis and pretty women to “date”.

      Zelensky reminds me of Epstein regarding the whole blackmail thing. It seems this degenerate has the goods on every political big shot in the West.

      • brushjockey May 26, 2023 at 1:46 pm #

        I’ve wondered about that, abbybwood. Trump’s infamous “perfect phone call” with Zelensky was about looking into the Biden family’s corrupt activities in Ukraine. I wonder if Zelensky obtained enough evidence to turn around and blackmail the US government into getting whatever he wants. My contention from the start was that we are doing anything but “defending democracy” in Ukraine (I throw up in my mouth a little every time some government stooge repeats that line). Biden is either trying to protect what remains of his cash cow, or if that fails, to burn it all to the ground to destroy the evidence.

        • Paula D May 26, 2023 at 2:02 pm #

          There is no way to blackmail the US government with evidence.

          There are mountains of evidence of corruption, murder and looting already in the public domain.
          Nothing can be done about it.

        • TEOTWAWKI May 26, 2023 at 2:14 pm #

          I wonder if Zelinski was Epsteins “fail safe”.

          Why didn’t Epstein have a fail safe to release after he was murdered to protect himself?

      • Paula D May 26, 2023 at 2:04 pm #

        I think that I mentioned before watching a video way back when the US first took over Ukraine, 2015 or so, (before they started censoring Facebook), which was of ISIS getting a shipment of weapons from Ukraine. They were pissed because they got defective weapons.

        Anyway, it’s been a thing for a long time now.

      • Beryl of Oyl May 26, 2023 at 2:41 pm #

        That tight outfit was worn for a spoof of a video by the band Kazaky. They’re a Ukrainian band.

        It is not unusual for comedy troupes to do spoofs of popular entertainment.

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0WY62Y-MQ4

        In the video with the piano, no one is actually playing anything. Some cultures have different ideas of humor than we do.

        • Yirgach May 26, 2023 at 4:06 pm #

          Yeah, I thought it was funny too.
          But it doesn’t make Zelinski less of a d*ck than he is for pimping out his country to the USA for slaughter.

          • Beryl of Oyl May 26, 2023 at 4:30 pm #

            True.

      • Night Owl May 28, 2023 at 5:25 pm #

        The other day on the You Tubz, I was watching a video of a literal fist fight in the Ukrainian parliament. Must have been 15-20 MPs swinging at each other–mounds of sweaty pork bouncing off one another, jiggling with the impact of each awkward blow.

        A feral land.

    A sane society protects children; it doesn’t exploit them for profit

    • SW May 26, 2023 at 10:35 am #

      Our society has been bordering on insanity for a while when it comes to exploiting children. Look at all the ads on TV for products aimed exclusively at kids, the clothing sold for younger and younger girls that’s more adult than a child of 8 years old should be wearing and the content of cartoons, kids sitcoms and movies have heavy doses of propaganda. Neil Postman wrote an excellent book The Disappearance of Childhood 30 years ago when it was no where near as bad as now.

      And don’t get me started on the food that’s peddled as nutritious — sugar cereals, nasty fast food, snacks.

      • Anthea May 26, 2023 at 12:13 pm #

        Back in the 80s and 90s, when I had young children at home, they sometimes watch cartoons on TV. I had virtually never watched TV in my single days–though I had a TV I kept in the hall closet–and, after I married and had children, my kids rarely watched TV. So I wasn’t used to it.

        I was shocked by the sexual innuendo in, for example, Super Mario Brothers cartoons. There was another cartoon show called Cat-Dog that had a lot of innuendo about the interbreeding of animals, including animals and humans. The mom (I think she was a cow, or at least part cow) was supposedly breeding with other animals. This was back in the 90s.

        Back at that time, this caused an uproar in the comments section of our area newspaper (The Johnson County Sun), but I think the complainers were just ignored. I don’t watch TV, let alone kids’ cartoon shows, so I don’t know if this is still a thing.

        • SW May 26, 2023 at 3:28 pm #

          I watched the Disney movie Frozen with my little grandson and hated it. It was a mishmash of a story with a neurotic drama queen as a victim of something, a hero sister who was “plucky” and the happy ending was everyone discovering how much they loved themselves.

          We forget how impressionable kids are but this garbage is now so much of the culture, it seems normal. It’s funny to watch Disney throw a fit b/c they’re not getting everything they want anymore.

          • Night Owl May 28, 2023 at 3:11 pm #

            Modern Disney films are unwatchable. Aside from the psychological conditioning, the characters, art, and scripts are so dumbed down that they are the cinematic equivalent of Wonder Bread.

            It is physically painful to watch a modern Disney film.

            I do like their classic films, however (despite the psychological conditioning). Even their non-animated old-school films were interesting and had quality writing and acting.

          • Anthea May 28, 2023 at 8:55 pm #

            @ SW:

            The Hans Christian Anderson story on which it is based is a good story–though it’s been a long time since I read it. I’ve never seen Frozen.

    What was done to children in Weimar Germany is still the reigning champion of depravity. The pendulum always swings, and when it gets around to turning back the other way, I wouldn’t want to be anyone in that rainbow coalition. History shows us what happens and the new round of depravity won’t be against children but against those that pushed this agenda.

      The collapse of civilization is a fearsome thing. One wonders if Russia is considered a part of western civilization.

      • Mick May 26, 2023 at 10:57 am #

        Russia has always desired to be a part of western civ, well, except for maybe during the Soviet decades. I think Russia has now given up on the goal for at least the rest of this century. It’s become clear to them that the west hates them, so they’re moving on. They are not experiencing the depravity right now. In fact, the Orthodox church is once again a driver of the culture. There are westerners, including Americans, who were moving there in numbers before last year because they wanted to raise children outside of the decadent west. I don’t know if it is still continuing due to the war.

        • zekesdad May 26, 2023 at 11:26 am #

          Russia is not experiencing depravity right now? I’d call a society depraved when it’s run by a murderous warmonger and a few hundred of his cronies who control everything in the country worth owning. The Orthodox church may not be the driver of the culture, but the despicable Patriarch Kirill is certainly egging on the destruction of cities and the slaughter of civilians. This “religious” man is going to die one day, and will have to answer to God.

            The US tops Russia in depravity by far.

            The US has all the things mentioned by JHK plus the degradation mentioned by earlier commenters plus oligarchical rule PLUS the blood of millions on its hands.

            Or is invading other countries and wiping out their infrastructure and populations OK when the US does it?

            The US is occupying 30% of Syria AND stealing their oil AND stealing their wheat. Last week they killed a shepherd who was the father of 10 children, now fatherless.

            Is it OK when the US does it?

          • Vegan Shark May 26, 2023 at 12:28 pm #

            Mick was describing the big picture in Russia. It’s impossible to say anything about large numbers of people without making generalizations. In any such statement there are bound to be exceptions and counter-facts, but that doesn’t disprove the generalization.

            Anyway …

            “A society … run by a murderous warmonger and a few hundred of his cronies who control everything in the country worth owning” is true of My-Country-‘Tis-of-Thee at least as much as Russia, except rather than a murderous warmonger it’s it’s a shadowy coterie of warmongers.

            I don’t know who Patriarch Kirill is but if he’s a villain, that no more invalidates the spiritual dimension of the Orthodox church than Anti-Pope Francis and some twisted pederasts among the Catholic priesthood negate the heart and soul of the Church. I’m not a big fan of organized religion, but I recognize its inspirational side.

          • Jarek May 26, 2023 at 12:44 pm #

            During the fall of the Soviet Union, the Patriarch stood up and said, Do not commit the sin of fratricide. This time they listened. Some think his voice tipped the balance in favor of peaceful transition.

          • cbeard May 26, 2023 at 12:45 pm #

            You live in a society full of depravity. I’m assuming that you live in America. America is a country definitely run by murderous warmongers and is currently the biggest sponsor of terrorism in the world and is run by a bunch of totally corrupt, evil oligarchs who control everything in this country. I’m sure Russia has it’s problems, but nowhere near the scale and heights that America’s problems reach. We have no one in DC who exhibits the statesmanship that Vladimir Putin does.

          Actually, many Americans and Canadians ARE trying to immigrate to Russia, a place that has ZERO tolerance of the trans insanity, and even zero tolerance of public promotion of homosexuality anywhere that children might see it. I.e., no “pride” parades. Also, no advertising of abortion is allowed.

          Russia is not perfect, but what’s significant is the DIRECTION a country is going in. Russia is going one direction, and the USA in the opposite.

          Tim Kirby, a native of Ohio who has lived in Russia since 2006, is the head of the American Village Project, through which the formidable immigration bureaucracy is being streamlined to ease the way for up to 200 English-speaking families, mostly from the USA, to move to Russia. Tim has a Telegram channel that I have followed for months. I have no desire to move to Russia myself, but I appreciate why so many people do.

        Western Civilization is such a broad concept. Ask anyone you know what it means and you will get as many definitions as there are letters in the term. Countries that have adopted European culture such as Japan and South Korea could they be considered as being a part of Western Civ?

        • Jarek May 26, 2023 at 12:48 pm #

          Samuel Huntington in his Clash of Civilization, lists about seven major Civilizations. The Orthodox of Eastern Europe get their own. Japan gets it own. Korea is part of Confucian Civilization, who locus in China of course. Most Koreans wouldn’t accept that. Latin America is a civilization. And that’s pretty amorphous indeed. Many of the Whites there look to Europe. The Mestizos do not, what to speak of the Blacks.

          Lemme guess: White people don’t exist, but somehow Blacks do?

          Firstly, apply equal standards to all people.

          Secondly, as far as being stringently logical: Look into fuzzy logic. Google it. Briefly, things exist even if they aren’t hermetically sealed from other things.

          Fuzzy logic is a modern take on Eastern Wisdom. It’s not the yes/no, on/off binary that has dominated Western consciousness for centuries.

          The color green for example, blends into colors on either side of it on the spectrum. So does it exist or not? Of course it does, it’s just no sealed off.

          Ditto the White race – and any other race. Just as green has a “midpoint” that can be defined as a certain wavelength of visible light, the White race could be defined by certain genetic parameters.

        They know it, too. You can smell the desperation. While refusing to apologize, Bud Light is giving away free beer this weekend with a $15 dollar mail-in rebate with your purchase. However, they are, continuing to sponsor those lurid gay pride events in miltiple midwestern cities. I strongly suspect many of those who are boycotting the brand will not be returning. Probably today, their stock will fall through a critical support level. Once that happens, they are expected to tumble another ten points, at least. They may survive this, in some form, though Ted Cruz is investigating them for marketing to minors. The vast majority of that mocking, vicious, female impersonator’s followers aren’t even of legal age.

        Target may not–their offense is far more egregious with it’s satanic overtones in children’s wear. How dare they? I saw a video of someone in a Target store, and it was empty of customers. He filmed their collection for pride month, and the offending items were still on display (it must have been in a liberal city), and this is just getting started. I hope it snowballs and they go bankrupt. Despite the example of Bud Light, North Face just released an add featuring a drag queen cavorting in nature in one of their women’s outfit.

        • tully May 26, 2023 at 6:22 pm #

          Calvin Klein has an ad featuring a bearded trans man who has not had top surgery wearing a sports bra. There is another person in the ad also wearing CK underwear. I say person because both of them are so obese, I honestly can’t tell who is what.

          An internet search will turn it up if you want to see it. Have eye bleach and maybe a stiff drink at the ready.

          CK’s customer base is a lot smaller than Bud Light and Target and probably many of them think the ad is great. As such, may not hurt business much. Thankful I don’t live in a big city where the ad is up on billboards….gah. 🙁

      My husband and I used an anonymous sperm donor to conceive, so our son has 45 (and counting) Millenn8al and Zoomer half-siblings. The Zoomers are nice kids who seem to have been overcome by the gender-bender fads. They are all wanted, planned-for, and loved, but they have willingly thrown in with the alphabet people. One girl, after a mastectomy and hormones, makes a convincing similacrum of a male. I just can’t believe how many of the post-1995 siblings have gone full woke, though. Aside from age, the “transformers” all have university in common.

      • Beryl of Oyl May 26, 2023 at 10:55 am #

          And affluent white girls. My son has one mtf trans sibling who has fallen back to being plain old gay. Most of the woke ones are female, though, and involved in university. The “normal” Zoomers in that group have gone into the trades, as has my son. (And yes, I did steer him there).

          I never dreamed my son would have such a sociological experiment among his blood relations.

          • megabeth May 26, 2023 at 11:10 am #

            My son has one lookalike brother who is woke and fragile enough to run around crying “white supremacy!” about everything. He and my son made friends, though, and I was relieved to find out that the brother was just gay. He seems to be shaking off the CRT activist garbage to some degree, a few years out from college graduation.

            I hope they all find their way without too much embarrassment after the social hysteria blows over.

        Academia and our leftist/woke educational system is one of the primary places all this delusional crap gets hatched and nurtured. It all ends with a grinding economic calamity maybe accompanied by war, resulting in lifestyles in the USA lurching back into the 1940’s.

        ln the 40’s food and fuel was rationed and some women were forced by necessity to engage themselves for a number of years in doing both hard manual labor in support of the war – along with performing routine domestic chores like cooking, gardening, cleaning houses, harvesting and preserving food, making and repairing clothing at home, etc. I can keep going with this list. I only understand a bit of this because I’m a senior and old enough to remember how it once was before fossil fuel energy and Asian slave labor allowed all that to change. The post baby boomer generations have no real world experiences giving them any understanding as to how things used to work in the past.

        After we lose the fossil fuel energy inputs to keep our nonessential and delusional lifestyles going – we’ll start the long journey back to being mentally healthy. We’ll be too tired to be crazy and the alphabet people will be long gone. With unreliable electric lighting it will be very dark and quiet at night. Excluding your dogs and the coyotes. Not only that, everyone will be asleep instead up being up and about and crazy. The streets and trails will be empty. And not because everyone is doped up with downers or drunk. People will be completely exhausted from a day spent in hard manual labor in brutal heat or bitter cold. Sleep will be dreamy and blissful.

        When you are poor and yet self sufficient and doing it all by hand you’ll be too tired to be mentally ill. It takes a lot of resources and spare time to support crazy. How to enable crazy living in an energy abundant world is what is being taught in all educational facilities from 1st grade to PhD. A crippling economic calamity will close all of these government and private educational institutions. It will be the situation of the parasite finally killing the host and they both end up being eaten by coyotes.

          Some states have made laws to that effect.

        • megabeth May 26, 2023 at 11:25 pm #

          When we sign the contract, we agreed to anonymity. But that did not precluding matching up with other offspring through the donor sibling registry, which matched kids through a voluntary sharing of donor specimen identification numbers. We found about 8 sibling in this voluntary way.

          Then along came DNA companies, and most of us were pretty appalled at the sheer numbers of half-siblings created this way. The banks *said* that they were working closely with clinics . . . but follow-up reporting of live births had been poor.

          And you can bet that a lot of these half-siblings were shocked to death when they got their results back. I.e. no genetic relation to their fathers and/or discovering dozens of half-siblings.

          One of my son’s sisters located the sperm donor, which gives me some trouble. He’s been very agreeable and gracious, but he did not sign up to be bombarded with babies checking in to say “Hi!”

          For us, this has been a back-door view into how corporations operate and how profit motive clashes with one of life’s sacred mysteries. And with important ethical considerations. Our donor donated under strict anonymity which was blown wide open by technology. I believe banks now have been moving toward greater transparency, with identified donors.

          This is not the case with my son’s clan, however. There are likely again as many half-siblings out there who may never spit in a test tube and find out that they have a bizarre family tree.

        No offense to you personally, and certainly not to your beloved child, but when our culture separated sex from reproduction, and vice versa, that opened the door for all that has followed.

        The culture taught people to regard their bodies as objects, rather than to see their whole self — a body-soul unity — as a sacred creature of God.

        Bodies became commodities, and commodities can be manipulated, mutilated, bought and sold.

        The trans insanity is straight-up demonic, but it couldn’t have taken root, let alone spread, in a culture that thought rightly about sex, bodies, and procreation.

        • Suburban_elk May 26, 2023 at 7:32 pm #

          Children that come of natural sex, are healthier. There is evidence to this effect, and it is common sensical.

          • megabeth May 26, 2023 at 11:37 pm #

            Artificial insemination is pretty dang close to natural sex. In vitro fertilization and its many permutations, on the other hand,, seems to lead to less healthy babies. Injecting the head of a sperm into an ovum, assisted hatching, et cetera, probably messes with the molecular infrastructure of cells in a brute-force kind of way.

            There is something to be said about reproducing with a man you’ve actually met, but alas, not all of us have the luxury. I think my husband and I lucked out in that our donor was a fine specimen of a guy, physically and mentally. Funny as hell, too. All the offspring tend to be clever at language, math, art, and especially music.

          • Jarek May 27, 2023 at 12:08 pm #

            The Pioneer Fund got geniuses to donate, and women and couples were interested as hell. People like quality and pedigree, be it handbags, dogs, or tomatoes. Why not people?

            It was destroyed by pressure from the usual suspects – many of whom know they are lying.

        • megabeth May 26, 2023 at 11:40 pm #

          I don’t disagree, Heartlander, but I do want to note that “sperm donor” is a time-honored tradition–it doesn’t go well with the corporate model, however.

          • Heartlander May 27, 2023 at 2:16 pm #

            God has a perfect design for marriage, sex, and procreation. When people have the hubris to put themselves above that, all kinds of bad stuff can happen, from divorce, to children tormented with identity issues, to adult children unknowingly committing incest with one of a kazillion siblings, and conceiving gravely handicapped children themselves.

            Of course, I hope none of those things happens to you and your family.

            But you can love your child while still realizing that you have, however well-intentionedly, violated God’s design and contributed to the madness in our society around sexuality and reproduction.

            When my husband and I thought that we could not have a child, we started discussing adoption. Trying to conceive a child in any other way than the normal, natural way never even entered our minds. We both had known many adoptive families. And yes, some of those children have their own issues around adoption that they have had to struggle with. I won’t deny it. But no more issues, I daresay, than children who find out that they were sired by a sperm donor.

            One question I’ve always had is how HUSBANDS feel — really feel, though they may not say it — about this sperm donor thing. I can’t imagine that most men wouldn’t feel resentful at some deep level.

            Does Jarek describe himself as a neo-Nazi, or is that meant as a slur?

            Anyone who is interested in alternative political solutions, (or at least approaches), to the soulless ones promulgated by the USA and its allies, might look into how National Socialism worked, and what were its values.

            Basically the People of the Nation were the first priority. For that to be case, obviously there has to be a People to begin with, which may not be (prolly is not, TBF) the case, in America.

            If Peoples as Peoples are not the first priority of a government, then what will happen to said people?? They will end up enslaved, as a matter of course. See for example our current situation.

            For the record, no one calls themselves a “neo Nazi” and Night Owl know this — it is strictly a slur to shut down debate. Grow up.

          Perhaps the reference was to the SS breeding programs where desired specimens mated with other desired specimens and the SS males apparently just left and went to the next. This left a huge number of children without knowledge of the male parent.

          • Jarek May 28, 2023 at 1:09 pm #

            They were a physical elite at the very least. Assuming the women were well picked, one can well imagine how strong and beautiful the children must have been.

            @ justanotherguy:

            The third link says the the lesson learned from Weimar Germany was that the Jews had moved too fast in institutionalizing depravity, and that the approach that would be best used in the US would the incremental approach:

            “What did the cultural Marxists learn from Weimar Germany?

            They learned that the Sexual Revolution, in order to succeed, had to be a slow and gradual process. ‘Modern forms of subjection,’ the Frankfurt School had learned,
            ‘are marked by mildness.’ Weimar had failed because the pace had been too frenetic. People were aware they were being corrupted. That was fatal.

            To corrupt a nation effectively one must make sure that the descent into degradation is an infinitely slow and imperceptible process, one miniscule step at a time—just as those who wish to cook frogs alive in a saucepan, reducing them to a state of comatose stupor, are advised to place them in cold water and boil them to death as slowly as possible.”

            I think we can see that this is precisely the approach that has been used in the US. We’ve been in the process of being GROOMED for the acceptance of all manner of perversions for several generations.

            There is far worse to come.

            The Teen Vogue and Scientific American articles are disgusting. I have, of course, not read any of Hirschfeld’s writings, if some exist, but in the light of the third link, it rather sounds like he was in the business of supporting and normalizing Weimar degeneracy. (I’ve read elsewhere that the materials that were burned by the Nazis were largely pornographic.) And thus it sound like Scientific American, and especially Teen Vogue, are in the business of tarring anyone who opposes degeneracy and sexual mutilation as a Nazi.

    It’s a shame when stuff like this has to make it into hands of the best social critics.

    • Rulo Deschamps May 26, 2023 at 11:24 am #

      Agreed! The phenomenon is everywhere. Last night at the farmers market: a fifty something man with breasts, and what he had done is cut off an entire leg of his jeans so a pink thong and buttcheek were fully visible.

      He was only the worst of a plethora of very needy (as in “look at me!”) individuals, many but not all young, with an air of victory around them. “Dare to say something” – they know full well that they’d win.

      For the record, I have homosexual family members, all dignified individuals in stable relationships, and not at all needy in the sense of making a grand statement through attire or attitudes in public.

      Also for the record, although I’m a straight, married, middle aged male, and love the sight of the female body, I’d also have a problem with a beautiful girl wearing that. Because there’s children in a farmers market, and they don’t need to see that.

      We were having a smoke by the trucks w the other growers and vendors and we just looked elsewhere, ignored, a couple of harsh comments were uttered, but… nothing else to be done. Who’s gonna be the good citizen that approaches the bag of ego and confusion and firmly requests him to leave?

      Satanic references in clothing and tattoos are also prevalent.

      Yes, Mr K is onto something. And it’s not just the screen controversies. It’s whole generations (2 so far) sinking deeper into mental illness.

        In other words, some of you wish you could have done something, but the liberals wouldn’t have supported you, the police would have been called, and your lives would have been destroyed.

        Some day it will be otherwise. Few if any police – and they will be on your side. And the liberals will know better than to try and interfere when such a person is told to leave in no uncertain terms.

        • Rulo Deschamps May 26, 2023 at 9:20 pm #

          Yes, Jarek, I wish I could have done something. Maybe I’m a coward. But you don’t have the experience of a wife and family… often, one has to think of them before getting his life destroyed.

            @ Rulo Deschamps:

            I can’t think of anything you could do–or at least nothing effective. Does one give a 50-something man in a pink thong a religious tract? (Maybe something along the lines of “Marylike Modesty in Dress.) Does one gently advise him that he is making himself an occasion of sin?

          • Jarek May 27, 2023 at 12:17 pm #

      • cbeard May 26, 2023 at 1:02 pm #

        I understand your reluctance to confront the freak, but that is what should have happened. Every sane person in the market should have physically put him out on his (bare) ass. They can’t arrest everyone. It is high time to stand up to the sick, demented monsters walking the streets.

        • Rulo Deschamps May 26, 2023 at 9:24 pm #

          I agree with you, beard.

          If you read Anthea’s description of the Kansas market, this one is very much like it.

          In fact, the young couples with kids visiting it probably love the fact that their children are being exposed to this.

          Can’t beat the zeitgeist. As I told Jarek above, I have to make a living, not an excuse, I really felt like doing something, but I didn’t, nobody did, we’d lose for sure.

          This is very woke Gainesville, FL, by the way.

      • Anthea May 26, 2023 at 3:04 pm #

        I did the Kansas City Farmers’ Market up until about this time last year. They had rules of dress and behavior prominently displayed. Most of them (actually all of them) were aimed at deterring the kind of misbehavior typical of blacks. I encountered a number of gay men and women, and maybe a trannie or two. (I can’t remember for sure.) Also a lot of bi-racial couples and white women with mixed kids. There were many nationalities, as the market and the surrounding area were somewhat of a tourist attraction, so you got people from all over the country and all over the world. The neighborhood itself was very upscale, trendy–and expensive. Many of the vendors were Asian, mostly produce vendors and cut-flower vendors.

        The market employed security guards–and, once when I went there during the week for lunch with my daughter, she observed something I had never had time to notice when I was at the market: The place was crawling with cops.

        I think the main reasons we never had any outlandish behavior were: (one) that the market is, after all, in Kansas City, which is not that much of a hotbed of wokeism. The other reason is that it’s in a heavily gentrified part of the city–that’s getting ever more gentrified over an ever-larger area. A lot of very wealthy people have invested untold millions there. And that’s how you get things like decorum and stringent law-enforcement: Investors have given their orders to the city government that it will be so.

        I miss going to the market, but the legs won’t do all that lifting and lugging any more. It got to where it wasn’t fun any more. And I have my hands full with the garden here at home.

        • Beryl of Oyl May 26, 2023 at 4:35 pm #

          Yes perhaps some signage about no naked butt cheeks would help

          ‘mixed kids’ that must be code for single mother with mulatto child.

          • Anthea May 27, 2023 at 11:59 am #

            I did see quite a few white men with Asian wives, and some with Hispanic wives. I rarely saw the black men accompanying the white women–just white women with mixed kids.

      • Ron Anselmo May 26, 2023 at 3:44 pm #

    Our society is handcuffed, we the people have been bound and gagged. I am certain we would be NOT be having this discussion if the degenerates (deplorables?) didn’t have the protection of the regime. Regular people are prudently afraid of becoming political prisoners for speaking out against it, or God forbid raising a hand against it.

    We are already shackled. If we don’t wriggle free now, and take back our power, those shackles will get tighter and tighter. Power NEVER GIVES back. Power must be TAKEN back.

    Can we move the discussion away from VIRTUE SIGNALING our disgust into actionable steps? Hopefully, steps that keep us out of jail – ala January 6… Ya know?

    I’m already full up on outrage, and I don’t need any more thanks.

    Cruising down the apathy highway…

    • SW May 26, 2023 at 10:40 am #

      I don’t think most people are apathetic about this, it’s more like frustrated and appalled. The parents that have stood up to school boards have been vilified but the tide is turning. The sexual perversion aimed at children (I agree completely with James) is reaching some kind of breaking point. No crime can be covered up forever.

      Remember one of the philosophers who the woke look to for inspiration is Foucault who was a pedophile who raped 10 year old boys. He wanted all restrictions removed on age of consent.

      • megabeth May 26, 2023 at 11:23 am #

        You had to say “Foucault”! Now I’m covered in hives. Foucault, Lacan, and Derrida made me *loathe* English lit classes back in the day. I’m not surprised that Foucault was a pederast in addition to being très fou..

  8. Beryl of Oyl May 26, 2023 at 9:39 am #

    That story about the Gates affair with the adult bridge player could be an attempt at defection from some of what Epstein really had on people.

    • rudyspeaks May 26, 2023 at 9:42 am #

      Yes. What the intel people call a “Limited Hangout”. When a crime can no longer be denied, it’s admitted to, but in a scaled down version that is, actually, a cover-up.

        • SW May 26, 2023 at 10:45 am #

          Maybe Maxwell is making a deal to get out of prison if she hands over a list. That would have a whole lot of men sweating except Prince Andrew who doesn’t sweat.

          • Mick May 26, 2023 at 10:52 am #

            According to Whitney Webb, Ghislane Maxwell has made her deal. She’s agreed to be quiet and compliant, which is why she was moved to a nice white collar resort style “prison” in Florida. And is also why she’s not dead.

          • Beryl of Oyl May 26, 2023 at 10:56 am #

            Serious question:

            Where did the idea of a list’s existence come from? Did somebody see one?

          • SW May 26, 2023 at 11:02 am #

            The list may only be in her head b/c she knew and saw all the people who came to Epstein’s island or home and who was assigned to sleep with whom. A witness and active participant in the crimes.

          • Not_GeorgeT May 26, 2023 at 12:27 pm #

            A ‘list’ in whatever form…

            What a trove of blackmail material.

            Think back a little, what really was going to become public in the Florida case against Epstein before the ‘fix’ via plea deal was activated?

          • Jarek May 26, 2023 at 1:06 pm #

            But consider: If they had already won completely, Epstein would have gone to jail at all. Or his henchwoman, Maxwell.

            Evidently he didn’t have it in him to do the time. They must have gotten word of it and solved the situation. She obviously knows the score and will do her time quietly.

            The takeaway: Despite everything, they still haven’t triumphed completely.

          • MaryQueen May 26, 2023 at 1:48 pm #

            Ah yes, poor Prince Andrew, who could not have assaulted Virginia because he lost his sweat glands in the Faukland War.

          • MaryQueen May 26, 2023 at 1:49 pm #

            Webb said Epstein was blackmailing Gates, which is why Epstein got the heave-ho.

      I don’t understand waht “attempt at defection”
      means in the context.

    Glad to see JHK connecting “Drag Queen story-book hour” to a planned provocation.The [Deep State, Establishment, Blob…whatever] is desperate for a “wedge” to drive between any sub-groups within the 90%. We all are being ROBBED BLIND by the .01%ers, so ANY cotton candy distraction (abortion, gun control, gender confusion) that takes the focus off the $50 Trillion robbery (see Rand Study) of the last 40 years gets media coverage, as though it’s a real concern. The only real issue is this robbery and its ramifications. PS: Just as J. Assange pointed out about our Afghan war, that its whole purpose was wealth transfers to the rich, so, too, the (doomed) Ukraine war.

    • Alfred May 26, 2023 at 9:46 am #

      Catherine Austin Fitts has been all over this. She’s running a video on solari.com, that outlines the scam. It’s been going on since before Y2K.

      Hey James, CAF would be a great interview!

      • Mick May 26, 2023 at 10:19 am #

        Whitney Webb would be a great interview as well. I think both she and Catherine would be happy to do it.

        • MaryQueen May 26, 2023 at 10:21 am #

          Agree! I’d love it if he could get either on. That would be amazing.

        • D from OR May 26, 2023 at 12:11 pm #

          Oh boy, please no. I like to listen to interesting interviews.

          Webb is a gatekeeper and doesn’t do conspiracy. She’s autistic so has to stay in her lane and can’t riff. She can talk Epstein but only to a point and if you go into other territory she clams up.

          By-the-way I wonder who was asking for a two volume book on Epstein? To me it said lack of editing but I suspect it was about the optics (omg! two volumes!). Someone wants Webb to be a star because she’s easy to manipulate.

          Austin-Fitz says the same thing over and over again so is a big bore. Within the first few minutes of a interview– no matter the topic – she always works in her HUD experience (a million years ago) then you get some Dillon Read & Co, and then there’s points for when she uses the word “tapeworm”. She never says anything new.

          • Not_GeorgeT May 26, 2023 at 12:35 pm #

            “Austin-Fitz says the same thing over and over”

            Yes, my take is she keeps saying it because the message isn’t really sinking in yet.

            She lives among off-grid people in Tennessee. A pocket of people with self-sufficent living arrangements.

          • Islander May 26, 2023 at 12:57 pm #

            I don’t think she lives in Tennessee.

            I think she lives in the Netherlands.

          • Islander May 26, 2023 at 1:03 pm #

            Re Webb, anything is possible.

            She seems to ahve a truly amazing grasp of all the details of the webs (ha ha) that she uncovers in her research.

            I have always wondered about her background—just the basics: Where she grew up and went to college, how she ended up in Chile, etc.

            But there is really no info about here out there as far as I know.

            IMO her work on uncovering the horizontal and vertical (in time) links between different fingers of the Kosher Nostra has been fascinating.

            Her two-volume book, One Nation Under Blackmail, is not only about Epstein. My understanding in her view Epstein is just the most recent blackmailer and is ununsual in that his head/identity poked through the usual walls of silence.

            After all, that is the point of blackmail. Create secrets so as to create the means of control/blackmail, and force people to keep any secrets they know, whether it hurts them or another person (such as spouse, family, constitutents).

          • Mick May 26, 2023 at 2:07 pm #

            Islander-

            I’m pretty sure I found some bio information on Webb at one time.

            That info seemed to put her in her mid-30s. I want to say I remember she grew up in Tallahassee or Jacksonville, Florida. Hard to imagine her as a Southern debutante.

            At one point Chile’s coof lunacy pushed her back to the US, but I think she’s back in Chile now.

          • Islander May 28, 2023 at 8:17 pm #

            Last I knew she was in the UK.

            But perhaps since then she returned to the US. Or Chile.

          • Islander May 28, 2023 at 8:18 pm #

            Nevertheless I find the dearth of basic info on Webb notable.

    THE TRANS PROBLEM is a result of normalizing the homosexual movement in the 90’s.

    THE DEBT CEILING

    I get daily questions from my European friends about whether the debt ceiling will be raised. But it’s not a topic of conversation among my friends in Florida.

    What do the readers here think about it?

    • MaryQueen May 26, 2023 at 10:00 am #

      No, the gays were used in order to catapult the trans thing.

      They are as big a suckers as the rest of us, and some of them have figured it out. There are several (who knows how many) groups and alliances of gays who have dropped the T.

      I will agree that the gays were used to shoe-horn in acceptance for the trans agenda, but much like the rest of society, they have been manipulated for decades in order to get to this point (much as kids are manipulated and programmed through cartoons, video games, peer pressure, online porn, etc.).

        Yes. Many people thought that the flag appearing on churches just mean inclusion and unity and other kumbayah-type stuff.

        The old rainbow flags looked like, well, a rainbow. Rainbows are nice things.

        The moment we started hearing LGBTQ is the moment that rainbow started to morph and got uglier and uglier.

        Nobody thought to question why there is even a T on a symbol that supposedly represented the different types of sexualities.

        • SW May 26, 2023 at 10:48 am #

          Garden variety gays (the ones I’ve known) aren’t okay with anything that includes children and don’t want to be associated with the militant perversion that’s taken over.

          Notice the T & POC part of it is an ARROW and very harsh, the direction is paving over the rainbow entirely.

          And now I see trans-only flags (pink white and blue) on porches, not gay flags.

      • Islander May 26, 2023 at 1:08 pm #

        “No, the gays were used in order to catapult the trans thing. ”

        Not all gays are the same.

        I saw a video some years ago that described the very situation we have seen developing and put the onus squarely on a group of pro-active, political homosexuals who wished to take over the public sphere of discourse.

        At the time I thought it sounded a bit extreme—but still somewhat credible.

        Now I can’t believe how the rainblow I mean -bow (poetry and truth via typo) flag is flying every-effing-where. Today I went to the office of an env. org in the woods to interview a guy about invasive plants. And there is the g.d. rainblow flying outside the building. In the woods (well, a number of env. orgs are all grouped nearby). WTF?

      When I heard the stupid term love is love I knew this was not about queer people at all but at getting at the kids.
      The trans movement is even more about the getting at the kids because now with gender confusion we can have age confusion as well.

      Nambla may have let the cat out of the bag as well about a decade ago since they started pushing to normalize schtooping children and now we see terms like map and yap.
      Map= Minor attracted person
      Yap = Youth attracted person

      It’s about the kids folks and a huge reason the wide-open borders are allowed is also about the kids 85,000 missing in just over two years.

      I am glad normal people are finally pushing back on these disgusting perverted ideas for advertising bizarro behavior and putting dildos next to kids toys.

      Debt ceiling is a fake by Treasury to get the Fed to stop raising rates.

      Optics. Doesn’t mean anything. Money has not stopped flowing into the Treasury – why would it? In fact raising rates creates more money flowing in to get earn some money on that high interest rate.

      The media forgets to tell you that part but also you should also know that as it is common sense.

      Yes, they were the open door. That’s what Bill just said, Mary. And yes to your point, the Elite used their openness and the open door that had been given to them to move the Trans agenda.

      Many Gays are beginning to regret the whole thing. Better late than never.

      Gays should never have been given such a blank check. Marriage and the right to adopt? Really?

      • farmgal May 26, 2023 at 4:11 pm #

        @ Jarek – Just look at what happened to the two adopted sons of a prominent gay couple in Atlanta. They were raping and pimping the boys out all over the metro area. Julie Kelly did a fantastic investigative series on it. Makes one reminisce fondly of lynch mobs.

    The FBI disappeared the evidence from the safe in Epstein’s townhouse.

    “The FBI agent said officers broke open the safe with a saw, finding the CDs, jewellery, computer hard drives, “loose diamonds”, passports and “large amounts of US currency.”

    They took photographs of the items, but left them at the residence as they did not have the warrant to remove them. When they returned four days later, on July 11, they were no longer there.”

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/world-news/2021/12/07/evidence-jeffrey-epsteins-safe-went-missing-fbi-raid-court-hears/

    This being the FBI, we have no way of knowing who is lying or whether they all are.

    There were rumors about photographs of lewd acts with children, but that means nothing, because with cops there are always rumors.

    One thing that is certain, when police have a warrant to open a safe, and they discovr something of interest inside that safe, they don’t leave and come back four days later with a warrant.

    They get in touch with a judge on the spot, any time, day or night.

    So why didn’t that happen in this case?

    Then there was this:

    “FBI agents raided Jeffrey Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean on Monday in a vivid display that the probe into his alleged sex trafficking ring is continuing despite his death.”

    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/fbi-agents-swarm-jeffrey-epstein-s-private-caribbean-island-n1041596

    We all saw what happened after that. Nothing from that island was seen or heard about again.

    Then there was that Maxwell trial. People still don’t get it. Jeffrey himself was the man that Maxwell was convicted of procuring underage girls for.

    People are still waiting for the other shoe to drop. There IS no other shoe.

      Maybe the tapes are in Biden’s Corvette garage or Hunter’s private collection.

      Seriously, it’s so obvious that a cover-up was put in place immediately and those tapes were either destroyed or are in a vault where no one will see them.

      Look at all the information the public is denied — we can only see the footage from January 6th that’s state approved, no open file on the Kennedy assassination, all the information on UFOs, and anything at all to do with Hunter’s laptop other than the porn which makes no difference to anyone. A wide range of topics but a tight control on what is “allowed.”

      • Beryl of Oyl May 26, 2023 at 11:03 am #

        I would love to know RFK Jr.’s take on the “insurrection”. After he’s studied the topic beyond what appeared in the MSM, of course.

        If he’s serious about reforming these bodies (which in the FBI’s case, can’t be done) he shouldn’t be looking away from the political prisoners being held in our capital.

        He’d have to step on some toes he doesn’t want to step on in order to do that, so I doubt he will go there.

          The FBI reminds me of the Roman Praetorium Guard. They too adopted the smug hubris of power, being a state within a state, choosing the next Emperor.

          Until one day a frontier general marched his battle hardened legions into town and crowned himself. The Praetoriums turned out to be cowardly chicken shits who were easily fired and scattered to the wind. They could live by never coming within 120 miles of Rome. Oh yeah, that pension – cancelled.

          Well, in a recent interview, RFK Jr. referred to Jan 6 as “a terrible day” for our country. He was NOT referring to the gross injustices visited upon the poor Trump supporters rotting, without charges, in the DC gulag for 2+ years now. Nor was he talking about the poor people who have since received middle-of-the-night visits from the FBI and been dragged off to jail for having made a comment on Facebook in support of the Jan 6 protest.

          No, he sounded like just another “mainstream” dupe. I want to like RFK Jr, I really do, but my heart sank at that moment in the interview.

      • MaryQueen May 26, 2023 at 11:34 am #

        I’m wondering if proponents of RFK, Jr. are just in denial about fixed elections, including primaries, and fixed “debates,” etc. Because it sure sounds like people are reverting to believing elections are actually legit, which is bizarre.

          The fact is that the cheating going on state to state can only be happening where the two sides are near 50-50. These bellwether states elect the government, especially the Prez.

          The Dems use this to the nth degree. It is why they are loading up the bellwether cities, a signpost of the bellwether states with Blacks, Muslims, etc. They control the electorate and thus the country, Uniparty forever.

          An ET psy op is a possibility. Also related to current interest in the occult / demonic.

          I think it was Toynbee that listed the signs of imminent collapse of civilizations. Obsession with ever more extreme sexual deviancy is one. Magic, occult practices interest growing is mentioned, too.

          • brushjockey May 26, 2023 at 2:04 pm #

            The ET angle is interesting. The subject is one that my wife grew up with, having a father who was fascinated by the idea of UFOs & alien abductions. When she became a Christian before we met, one of her first questions was “what about aliens?” The church seemed to have nothing to say on the matter.

            Over the last few years, various Christian researchers have broached the concept that what we think are ET’s are actually demonic entities, adding yet another dimension to the anti-God theory of the origin of the human race. As people fall away from belief in God (as predicted in the Bible), they are open to considering other theories. The “arrival” of ET’s, in huge spaceships “Independence Day”-style, claiming to be our forefathers who seeded us eons ago and have now come to guide us to “the truth”, would be a perfect way to essentially negate all Earth-bound religions as just the creations of man, something I’m sure would be openly embraced by billions of people worldwide. After all, who would believe an invisible “God” when these guys are right here in front of us. With all of the gaslighting and reality-bending of the past decade, it wouldn’t be a big leap for many. The Bible mentions that there will be a “great deception”; this, when combined with all of the other “unthinkable” things currently happening, seems more possible than ever.

    I’ve had the feeling that whatever this phenomenon represents, it is most certainly heading rapidly to a convergence, let alone a collision.
    While appreciating the possibility that some major outing of the chief celebrity creeps is imminent, I cannot readily see the Owners sacrificing one of their own, unless there is enough of a factional element that has these monsters in conflict while vying for dominance.

    If we take the existence of factions into account, that might explain the desire for epic scandal and an ensuing further fracture of national confidence in ourselves, a gamebreaker needed to unlock the floodgates, but would also likely open up the possibility for the entire scheme to be exposed, including the über-perps directing it.

    Certain countries such as China and factions in Israel, perhaps even Russia, would seem to gain in the near term from the stature diminishing of U.S. / European leaderships’ downfall, but the chaos, if hoped for, certainly brings much danger to what fragile stability still exists in international cohesion in spite of the wild-assed rhetoric that has become the new standard daily bleat from D.C. that circulates in the msm and resonates in capitals across the international order.

    All in all, the lessons from the Tower of Babel continue to echo in my head, right down to the citizens of our own country no longer having the ability to communicate in a common language because we live in different, conflicted worlds.

        Brics is a lot of talk and little action. Many of the touted applicants play all factions: Argentina for example does get yuan, but immediately trades them for US dollars. Others are insignificant economies.

        There’s power plays within brics too. Xi dominates right now, Lula plays his own game, Putin, I really dunno what’s going on there. Prighozhin of Wagner may be backstabbing him, or something. There may be kompromat. S Africa doesn’t acct to much, and India, like Brazil, play all markets.

          Do you think that Prighozhin is playing the court jester? The one that tells the truth that no one else can tell?

          I saw another Russian guy laying out corruption in Russia’s MIC, and connecting it to top military officials, (but I can’t remember who).
          Apparently one guy got busted and fired, but then he got another contract. Say what? No wonder people are pissed off.

      But others insist that they are worshiping something real in its own right. Or to put the two paradigms together: That Satan is an archetype of our own higher or free self.

    ” what’s up with the company CEOs like Anheuser-Busch’s Brendan Whitworth, Target’s Brian Cornell, and North Face’s Todd Spaletto?”

    I can answer that. We’ve come to a point where The Global Agenda is more important that corporate profits, and they don’t care how much $$$ they lose.

    This guy nails it:

    “As seen in previous articles, nearly every single major brand is showing compliance with the gender-blurring agenda. Every single time, there is backlash and calls to boycott – but that doesn’t matter. In the global elite’s new economic system, compliance is more important than profits.”

    https://vigilantcitizen.com/pics-of-the-month/symbolic-pics-of-the-month-05-23/

    This is just as coordinated as the Covid19 psyops was.

    You will assimilate – that’s what’s important. They no longer care about boycotts or profits. If they did, they wouldn’t be allowing people to loot them blind in the big cities.

    • Beryl of Oyl May 26, 2023 at 10:07 am #

      Major brands benefit from globalism, just as they benefitted from the lockdowns, which killed off their smaller competitors.

      I agree, this was coordinated.

      Those big cities will be filled with the world’s rabble, and those people will need to eat, and the major brands may turn out to be the only game in their 15 minute zones.

      I don’t understand what a one-eye symbol means. I looked at the link and it was quite informative of what passes for art these days. And the message of that one woman, Elisabeth Ohlson, was particularly vicious and depraved. But I’ll bet she’s “celebrated” for her “courage to confront traditional norms in a new and exciting and bold manner that’s sure to upend how we see religious figures!” or some such b.s. as that.

      • C.O.Jones May 26, 2023 at 1:10 pm #

        @SW – the one eye symbol predates freemasonry and is referred to as “the all-seeing eye.” AKA the eye of Horus. Horus is name dropped in Led Zeppelin’s studio version of The Battle of Evermore but you have to listen closely. It’s changed in the Robert Plant & Alison Krauss version. It’s from ancient Egypt and symbolized well-being and protection. Today it symbolizes paganism and you can find examples of hollywood actors and big time musicians bowing at the knee and vowing fealty to paganism by using this symbology in person and in their work. Look at Mel Gibson’s film company. Look up celebrities covering one eye.

          Thanks Mary and Islander — I read these and it’s interesting. I don’t understand the interest in the occult that has had a following many times among the wealthy and influential. What are they looking for? A way to extend mortal life? A justification for selfishness?

            What are they looking for?

      Isn’t this all part of the WEF driven Environmental, Social and Governance sustainable investing movement? The CEOs of the companies that subscribe to those goals can make a killing financially even if public outcry and sales implosions after the fact of whatever bullshit idea just blew up in their face. It’s a company loses but stockholders win woke stock market scheme.

      Question. Is it old news that K. Schwab has a bust of Lenin in that photograph, or no one seems to care? I know what a bust of Mussolini or A.H. would do to most people’s careers.

      Agree. They aren’t going to back down. But that doesn’t mean the Boycott is meaningless. It’s a rallying cry to create our own brands, products and yes, Culture, ultimately.

      “You will assimilate – that’s what’s important. They no longer care about boycotts or profits. If they did, they wouldn’t be allowing people to loot them blind in the big cities.”

      You have a MAJOR POINT here, MQ.

    • Rulo Deschamps May 26, 2023 at 9:44 pm #

      Spot on, Mary. At this point, profit is less important than compliance. Everybody (big corps anyway) gets bailed out anyway.

      Boycotts, pfff. Just about as effective as going online and ranting. Or carbon credits. You have the right idea there… “assimilation”… compliance… 2 generations from now, if they get their way, there will be nothing left of those quaint old time ideas, like basic decency, morality, any of that.

      Brave new world indeed.

        So we’re not descended from the Apes as Darwin says?

        Modern theorists say that we diverged from them millions of years ago, that we have a common ancestor in other words. But you reject both now, as a convert to Christianity?

            Freud, Marx, Darwin – two down, one to go. Did you think they meant somebody other than Darwin?

            Evidently you don’t know that the other two have lost much credibility, but not Darwin.

    After 50+ years of essentially being a Christian in name only (“Chrino”?), I purchased my first Bible recently. A couple, in fact. My lifelong predisposition to rationality over faith is being reshuffled by the day, since I cannot explain current events as anything other than demonic. Fun way to become a Christian—dragged in through the back door not because you’re convinced about God, but because you’re convinced about evil.

    • MaryQueen May 26, 2023 at 10:17 am #

      There are a LOT of people in your camp, John K.

      I have many friends in bible study now who were agnostics/atheists a mere few years ago.

      I would guess it’s a natural reaction to so much satanic evil. Makes sense to me.

      • Beryl of Oyl May 26, 2023 at 10:36 am #

        I use to question my own faith. Did I really believe in God, or was it just because that was what I was always told, growing up?

        I decided that contrary to what some prominent atheists are trying to sell us, if one believes in good and evil, right and wrong, sin and goodness, then you believe in a higher power.

        There is no such thing as some kind of free-floating morality that just is.

        • John K May 26, 2023 at 10:43 am #

          I’m reading C.S. Lewis’s “Mere Christianity” at the moment, and he makes the exact same argument. Where does our compass for right and wrong come from, if we’re just cosmic accidents that evolved from primordial soup?

          • MaryQueen May 26, 2023 at 11:31 am #

            I’m thinking of taking a course on C.S. Lewis and Christianity at Hillsdale college. Their courses are free.

          • Anthea May 26, 2023 at 9:29 pm #

            @ MaryQueen:

            My son-in-law was raised a Baptist, but, being interested in theology, he investigated various other religions. A few years ago, he took Catholic instructions.

            I mentioned this to a Baptist friend of mine at the time, and she reared back like a spooked horse, until I clarified that he didn’t intend to convert, but was just interested in the theology. (Since I can read minds, I knew she was thinking, “What does his MOTHER think about that?”)

            Anyway, he ended up converting a couple of years later. (Long story.)

            There is probably no better way to get a solid grounding in theology than to take Catholic instructions. I was fortunate, back in the 70s, to be able to take instructions one-on-one with one of the finest priests in the diocese. I’m not sure that’s even done nowadays. But you might inquire around.

        • Edge Lord May 26, 2023 at 10:56 am #

          You are still trapped in a binary contradiction.

          Not believing in “god” does not leave the lone alternative of “atheism”

          Civilization is built on hierarchy. So too is much life in the animal and plant kingdoms.

          Since you speak of “sin”, I’ll presume you are an Abrahamic of the Christian variety.

          Are you comporting to a higher power, an alpha predator, the Demiurge, in its world, or the free-floating Monad?

          • Mick May 26, 2023 at 11:00 am #

            I, for one, prefer the Monad. Not a fan of the Demiurge. Don’t like his urges.

          • Beryl of Oyl May 26, 2023 at 11:06 am #

            I don’t believe I said anything about God versus atheism as the only choices.

          • Edge Lord May 26, 2023 at 11:25 am #

            Correct, you typed:

            “I decided that contrary to what some prominent atheists are trying to sell us, if one believes in good and evil, right and wrong, sin and goodness, then you believe in a higher power”

            We do not need to parse out if higher power = god.

            We do need to understand if acts we understand as compassion, or good, witnessed in the animal, and even the plant kingdoms, are driven by BELIEF in a higher power.

            I confidently believe that is a “no”.

          • Paula D May 26, 2023 at 12:19 pm #

            Agree completely, Edge Lord. I have never seen evidence that a belief in God makes a person better.

          • SW May 26, 2023 at 2:53 pm #

            Sam Harris is a perfect example of an atheist. He says his belief system is based on ethics but refuses to acknowledge that ethics (at least Western ethics) are based on the principles of good and evil from the Old and New Testament. He doesn’t have a new set of rules but mixed in with it is a liberal sprinkling of situational ethics. A year or so ago he stated any lie was okay with him if it kept Trump out of office. So much for ethics.

            Being a Christian or a Jew or a Moslem won’t make anyone better but taking the rules seriously and living by them will.

          • Edge Lord May 26, 2023 at 3:22 pm #

            @SW

            I find Sam Harris to be the perfect example of a smug asshole.

            When his weak arguments cannot overcome a superior adversary he whines that it was due to “their” inability to understand him and then engages in email feuds and the like.

            He’s a petulant infant.

            Also, western ethics (Greece, Rome) existed in highly civilized society before, and without, the influence of the Abrahamic cults of the middle-east.

          • SW May 26, 2023 at 6:53 pm #

            @Edge Lord — That’s true but the point I was making in regard to Harris was universal standards of ethical behavior and bad behavior are based on standards he didn’t invent. I’ve rarely seen an atheist who didn’t act in some way like they personally were the authors of acceptable actions, only to abandon them when it no longer became convenient. And you can justifiably say the same thing about any and every religion.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder May 30, 2023 at 9:34 am #

          Dostoevsky: “When there is no God, all things are permissible.”

          Our society began to push out God in the sixties, because “old myths” or “science”. It felt good not to think that individual actions were being appraised by an Ultimate Power. So many felt better and refused to judge others.
          Now here we are.
          Is 5:20 : Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

          • SW May 26, 2023 at 2:44 pm #

            Dostoevsky saw it coming — all the amorality, self-absorption, collapse of moral standards into a self-justification for even the worst behavior, political zealotry that masks a fundamental cruelty. Those Russians were pretty amazing.

            He saw too the danger in treating criminals as men who are primarily products of their environment and not fully responsible men. He saw this as stripping them of their souls and turning them into unthinking, irresponsible children.

      “Fun way to become a Christian—dragged in through the back door not because you’re convinced about God, but because you’re convinced about evil.”

      This is interesting. I’ve had these same thoughts myself but never dared to write them down. Anyone who studies with an open mind some of the horrific and bloody history of the Western Churches will have an unavoidable negative reaction to many of the traditional claims made by the church in general. But upon more study of pre-New Testament church history you’ll find that there is a big difference between what the church teaches and between what Jesus most probably taught. One might conclude that a relationship between onseself and God has nothing to do with any “sacred books”. If you must depend upon a priesthood to “save” you then you are involved in an ordinary garden variety cult. This cult can in no way protect you from the evil activities of disembodied yet real entities. The reason being is that these priests you depend on are themselves being influenced by evil. You’ll find yourself in the position of a blind person being led by another person with no eyesight.

      Be warned: The Churches are almost completely fallen in the West except for Traditional Catholicism and some of the Orthodox.

      C.S Lewis is a great guide, even though he could never get past the Protestantism of his youth, to the great regret of his friend, Tolkien.

      The King James Bible is the most beautiful, but the Douay Rheims (traditional Catholic) may be more accurate, ultimately.

      • C.O.Jones May 26, 2023 at 2:28 pm #

        Jarek – Being raised in the Catholic church I have avoided all things Catholic as an adult although I have many family members still trodding that path and I don’t love them any less for it. They are wonderful, sincere people but I left that sect. I studied the Hebrew language for years and use the Hebraic-Roots Scriptures as my go-to. I’ve had a few hundred hours of discussion with 4 or 5 different versions of the Word spread out on the table, each being dissected, analyzed and interpreted. Progressive revelation is a wonderful thing! The analogy to peeling an onion and finding a deeper meaning with each layer is appropriate!

      • Heartlander May 27, 2023 at 4:03 pm #

        I just received a copy of the Knox Translation. Like the Douay-Rheims, it is an English translation of the Vulgate, BUT it is in much more readable language, while still being accurate and beautiful.

        The Douay-Rheims, like the old King James, suffers from the English language having changed a lot in the last 400 years, rendering many words and phrases incomprehensible at best, and at worst, completely opposite to their original meaning.

        The Knox translation was hard to find for many years, but a Catholic publishing house called Baronius Press brought it back into print a couple years ago.

        It is a beautiful Bible, and I am loving it!!

        • Jarek May 28, 2023 at 1:15 pm #

    • Heartlander May 26, 2023 at 6:30 pm #

      You’re not alone, John K. In fact, you’re in very good company. Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Mark McDonald, Mike Yeadon, and Naomi Wolf — all of them heroes in the covid “Resistance” — used to be secular people.

      All of them have said that they now have faith in God of some sort or other, owing to the covid phenomenon of the past 3 years waking them up to the fact that Evil is a REAL, actual FORCE in the world, not just an abstraction or figment of imagination.

      I remember one interview with Mark McDonald. He had always PRIDED himself on being a completely rational, secular person. But his whole worldview was shaken. He said he’d been forced to conclude, however reluctantly — on the basis of what he’d personally witnessed — that a tremendous force of pure evil was indeed existent and active in the world.

      Some of us are dragged, kicking and screaming, to faith in God. Hey, better late than never. I think LOTS of people are coming to faith. Heaven knows, we’re gonna need it.

      I hope you got a full Bible, one with the books that Martin Luther had the hubris to excise from the it. There’s a chapter — 2 Maccabees 7 — that every Christian should have in their heart ahead of time for the persecutions that are coming.

    • Amman May 26, 2023 at 7:34 pm #

      There was an American who spent his life asking himself why a God would create Man – someone who does so much harm to others and to nature.

      Then he found an excerpt in the QURAN where the angels ask: “What? Are you really going to create Adam – a creature who sheds blood and corrupts the earth?”

      To make a long story short, he said he became a Muslim because that had been his lifelong question and he was satisfied with the answer.

      I think there is plenty of evidence for the existence of a Creator but acquiring a good understanding and follow-up discipline is a trial not least because of the enemy but mostly because man is forgetful.

    • Anthea May 26, 2023 at 9:06 pm #

      @ John K:

      I was in the same place a few years ago, except that I had been a believer earlier in life who went over to the rationalist camp for a number of years. There were a number of reasons why I “lost my faith.” One of the main ones was a number of severe disappointments. It is possible to be tried beyond the limits of your endurance. Another reason was that I was influenced by a good friend who had lost his faith. Yet another was that I attended a few Protestant churches and came away with the distinct impression that their chief business was “influence peddling.” Our local Presbyterian Church actually came out OFFICIALLY in favor of the Iraq War. (The decision came down from “corporate,” and the local church was expected to toe the line.) If you went into the local middle school, the hallways were lined with Army-recruitment posters.

      Many Protestant Churches are chiefly in the business of swaying political and social opinion, and getting out the vote. There was, for example, a school bond issue in 2008 or 2009 that I am pretty sure was a covert banker-bailout. Every church in town was pounding the pulpit in favor of it, and many had signs urging you to vote “yes” all along the curb.

      The reason I was attending Protestant Churches is because the local Catholic Church had gone full-on “woke” before “woke” was even a thing. I attended one service and was appalled.

      Meanwhile, I was getting a worm’s-eye view of the incredible corruption of all the local institutions: the schools and the city, county, and state governments. This was out here in rural America. If you knew the inside dope on local goings-on, you were well aware that almost all of them were a nest of thieves. I could tell you stories….

      Now I’m back in the Christian camp–I think maybe for reasons similar to yours. One of the main difficulties of returning to Christianity is finding a church that is actually in the business of Christianity–as opposed to being little more than a country club where attorneys can offer each other bribes in the church basement, at the potluck.

      Luckily, I’ve moved, and I’ve found such a church–plus one of my daughters is a woman of extraordinary faith. This helps a lot. As a mom, you spend many years trying to teach your kids the right thing and to protect them from the sewage lagoon of modern culture. As an older adult, it’s gratifying when they return the favor and draw you back into the faith–after you’d lost faith in both the church, almost all public institutions, and most of the rest of humanity–and, to a great extent, yourself.

      I do have to admit that area Catholic Churches closed for awhile during covid. It’s the bishop of the diocese who decides these things, so I suppose I should send him a sternly worded letter or something. I also understand that the bishop has banned the Latin mass. Some priests still sneak around and do it, at considerable risk to their continuing in the priesthood.

    • Rulo Deschamps May 26, 2023 at 9:48 pm #

      John K, well said. Same here. I cannot explain reality right now without acknowledging very dark forces gaining strength. And the only religion I knew as a boy, then lost, is now seen in a different light.

      What an observation. “not convinced about God, but about evil” – evil exists, and no rational system of thought can explain it. There has to be something else.

    • Anthea May 26, 2023 at 11:37 pm #

      Apropos of nothing in particular, I heard interesting news tonight. There was a nun in the area named Sister Wilhelmina who died a few years ago (I think it was four years ago) who was disinterred in order to re-inter her somewhere else. When they opened the casket, they discovered that her body was incorrupt.

      My daughter and her husband drove up to Gower, Missouri, yesterday, where they waited in line for two hours to view the body. I doubt if I’ll be able to make the trip up to Gower in time to see her, as they’re planning to re-inter her on the 29th.

      • Woodchuck May 27, 2023 at 1:17 pm #

        Really? Waiting in line 2 hours to view a dead nun? Reminds me of a few places in Germany I visited where you can view the remains of some dead saint all dressed up in gold and silver cloth and semi-precious stones. Of course, this is all protected by very thick panels of unbreakable glass or plastic to keep tourists from stealing things off the lavishly decorated skeleton.

        Oh my gosh, thank you so much for sharing this info! I have been donating monthly to this little order of nuns for a number of years.

    Thanks, Jim, for another excellent article. Here is Whitney Webb explaining the Epstein stuff, etc.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xsc7Y9HKeLw

    And there is now open speculation that Epstein was blackmailing Gates and that might be part of why he was bumped off.

    But of course that is a drop in the bucket.

    Of course the pervert agenda is being put in place to normalize the nefarious doings about to be massively exposed (or already have been) by Our Illustrious Global Overlords. How long can anyone cover up that amount of depravity?

    Look what they’ve normalized parents into accepting and doing to their kids over the course of only 5 or so years: Sterilizing, removing healthy body parts, force-masking, allowing them to be online where endless predators are waiting to pounce, exposing them to available porn…. they were all on board. Who pays for the tassels to adorn little boys’ chests and their wigs, sequined mini-skirts and go-go boots when they “decide” to be little queens in the new social programs where drag queens “mentor” youth and “empower” them to twerk for adults? In bars, no less.

    They watch & cheer with glee at the satanic rituals now held at every major gala, awards and half time show, and their kids emulate the satan-worshipping celebs, whose concerts are also obvious rituals. So to say it’s being normalized I suppose is a massive understatement – it’s being glorified.

    One doesn’t have to be religious or a Christian to recognize it. One almost has to be blind not to see it at this point.

    • brushjockey May 26, 2023 at 10:49 am #

      I was not raised in church, other than obligatory appearances at Christmas and Easter. In my 20s, a sequence of events herded me toward needing to explore some deeper issues of life, leading me to become a Christian in my 20s. In the more than three decades since, I have read much about the Satanic agenda to destroy all of God’s creation. So much of it seemed remote, distant, hard to wrap one’s mind around; but the events of the last 20 years or so have been stunning. As Mary mentioned, the half-time shows and awards events have shown a rapidly increasing trend toward satanic imagery and symbolism, dismissed of course by artists and critics as simply “edgy performance art” and gradually normalized. The war on the minds and bodies of children and the multiple distortions of reality for all are part of the plan to confuse humanity and remove all tethers to what most consider normal. When viewed as a whole, all of these developing trends point in the same direction, and do, as Jim says, have a feel of a coordinated undercurrent of evil that has been unleashed on humanity. Corruption at every level of society, even (and especially) within the church itself (why would you NOT infiltrate and destroy your enemy from within?) rule the day, and arrogance and insanity of those in charge tells us what we are up against. If the Bible is taken at its word, we are in for the most perilous times imaginable, once the total surveillance/CBCD system is implemented and no one shall be able to buy or sell “without the Mark”. The part I find most concerning is my children and my new grandson, whose expectations of the peaceful and prosperous future that we mostly enjoyed and took for granted are being threatened by these despicably evil bastards.

      • MaryQueen May 26, 2023 at 11:03 am #

        Well said, and a good synopsis, brushjockey. There’s too much now for it to be a trend or a coincidence, etc. It’s pretty much right in our faces. Along with normalizing satanic imagery is the normalization of pedophilia. There is a two (probably more) pronged attack: Notice that it’s permitted in the ART WORLD as celebrated “artists” host images of children being raped in the finest galleries in France. And of course some magazine touted Tony Podesta’s art collection years ago, which features the red naked butts of children, plus all the pedo imagery, and his main piece is a gold sculpture of a headless person which is a replica of one of Dahmer’s victims. Then we had the Spirit Cooking stuff. You can google the pics.

        I’ve been watching and cataloguing over the years not only this stuff but the engineered covid hoax as well. At this point, it’s simply amazing the mutli-leveled psyops they have put in place, and explains the insanity of most people as a reaction. I remember reading as a youth about Good Germans during the Holocaust, and that they didn’t do anything but contributed to the horror, and now I understand it. It doesn’t take much for some (most?) people to tap into their inner authoritarian and buy into agendas that make them feel ‘safe’ – or accepted.

        In any case, we’re in for a bumpy ride.

          Christianity condemns homosexuality in no uncertain terms. They are always strong in the arts. Some superiority? A broader corpus colloseum (sp?) or bridge between the hemispheres of the brain? Perhaps.

          But morally stronger? It is to laugh. The contrary, needless to say.

          “And of course some magazine touted Tony Podesta’s art collection years ago, which features the red naked butts of children, plus all the pedo imagery, and his main piece is a gold sculpture of a headless person which is a replica of one of Dahmer’s victims. Then we had the Spirit Cooking stuff. You can google the pics. ”

          All written off as tinfoilhattery.

          Nothing wrong with these images, or the people who enjoy looking at them.

        Brushjockey, love your post. I’d take the “mark of the beast” a little further. The mark of the beast cannot be forced upon us. We must be willing to take the mark upon ourselves. It’s a choice. I believe the mark of the beast to be a spiritual mark and all who choose to reject Christ and his gospel in favor of Satanic principles and worship of Satanic materials have taken that mark upon them. If the mark is forced upon us then God cannot issue punishment. If the mark is taken upon us by our choice to follow Satan, then we are ripe for his justice.

        Just my opinion. Loved reading your thoughts.

        • brushjockey May 26, 2023 at 1:06 pm #

          Exactly, Cankerpuss. Some of the old Christian movies and books from the ’80s almost made the process of accepting “the Mark” look like the Gestapo breaks down your door and pins you to the floor, with you kicking and screaming as the branding iron sears it to your forehead. But a few years ago, as I learned of things like AI, embedded microchips, the “global brain”, and a very long list of other technologies being developed to make life “easier” for all, it became obvious to me that a massive spider’s web was being constructed, with a million moving parts, that would in many subtle and overt ways would herd humanity into the cattle chutes of the globalist agenda. At first it would be voluntary, but over time the system would evolve to the point where resistance would become increasingly difficult, and then finally illegal. The vaccines were a perfect example; fear, combined with peer pressure and shame, became threats of job loss and societal isolation, with some even calling for the “extermination” of the un-vaxxed as a threat to public safety. All government agencies and the owned media would be brought in to drive public perception, with the rebels becoming the “rats” of the Nazi propaganda films. And then the upbeat messages of the wonderful world awaiting just on the other side of your dutiful compliance; the advantages of being a “good citizen”. We will not only not resist, we will race to be first in line, like when the vax was first introduced. The wet dreams of the WEF and Yuvall Noah Harari of a trans-human society free from biological constraints and religious dogma are dystopian nightmares to those who see from our perspective. I’m not sure how many of us there are….or how strong we will be.

          • farmgal May 26, 2023 at 4:56 pm #

            @brushjockey – for those who like fiction I highly recommend a book entitled “The Mandibles” by Lionel Shriver. It begins in the near future (2029) and continues until the mid 40’s. It’s about a well to do family in New York during an economic collapse of the United States. As I read it I kept thinking to myself, “wait…that’s already happening”. Especially poignant is the complete indifference of the younger generation to work at menial jobs when they know there is no future for advancement or hardly any future at all.

            I read a lot of dystopian fiction but this one is different, The economic collapse aspect is so well written that you can see the parallels to today. There is loads of information on the whole American economic system and it is quite witty and engaging. It’s available on Amazon of course.

            The author is actually a women (didn’t like the name Margaret Ann) and she has caught tons of flak about the book’s perceived racism and politically incorrect thought. She basically told them to stuff it and her publisher dropped her as I recall.

          • Islander May 26, 2023 at 6:28 pm #

            Hi, Farmgal,

            I think I have heard of this book.
            It is in the local library system, and I have ordered it.

            Sounds interesting!

          • Paula D May 26, 2023 at 9:14 pm #

            I think that Lionel Shriver was cancelled for her views on the trans issue.

            She has the audacity to know that men are not women and vice versa.

            Heretic!

            To farmgal, I’d like to second the Mandibles recommendation.

            Margaret Atwood also hit the nail on the head, not so much with her handmaid’s tale, but her Oryx and Crake trilogy.

          But the Mark of the Mark is physical. The mental/spiritual Mark is made by being willing to take the Vax. An existential choice.

          Now retreat is still possible. Some repent of this. But the times may be coming where no retreat or repentance is possible. The nano-technology within the vaxes will negate any and all free will.

          The Mark is described as causing bleeding sores and death. It has a clear physical component.

          • Heartlander May 26, 2023 at 6:44 pm #

            Have y’all read Dean Koontz’s Jane Hawk pentalogy? (You have to read them in order, starting with The Silent Corner.)

            The books came out 2017-2019.
            When the vaxx mandates started, I kept having flashbacks to that prophetic series. It’s all there: forced injections, a thoroughly evil FBI and NSA, a totalitarian alliance of the deep state with Big Tech, global rule by a handful of billionaires, transhumanism, mind-control of the masses….

            In the books, government agents forcibly inject people with stuff that, once in the body, self-assembles into nanomachines that end up migrating to the brain…..

          • Jarek May 26, 2023 at 10:24 pm #

            Interesting. I’ve read a lot of his books, but I’ve never seen these. Others have said he is used or allows himself to be used in this way. Satanist “ethics” demand some obscure warning be given. Others says it’s “predictive programming” – a kind of ritual that makes it come true easier. Sad if true, because he seems to have a spiritual vision.

            Or is he just that much in tune?

          • Heartlander May 27, 2023 at 5:44 pm #

            Jarek,

            I believe Dean Koontz to be a good man.

            I think he is either very much “in tune with spiritual realities in the world, or is in touch with an “insider” or two. Or both.

            I see his books as WARNING — the very opposite of predictive programming. Indeed, I and another commenter at Market-Ticker had a very interesting discussion about this just the other day. That gentleman actually credited Dean Koontz’s Jane Hawk series with saving himself and his family from the vaxx. The impact of that fictional but all-too-real story influenced him to stand firm against the vaxx even when his employer was threatening to fire him for refusal.

            I feel exactly the same way. I feel sure that, for all of my other good, solid arguments against the vaxx, it was having read those books that made my opposition to the vaxx so powerfully VISCERAL and unwavering.

        • anmariwakaranai May 26, 2023 at 2:33 pm #

          Yes it won’t be forced, but it will be a mark of convenience to buy and sell, as the good book says, so start with cbdc following the crash perhaps.

          Gonna be a little not to take the mark which will be physical, aided by the graphene and luciferase no doubt in the jabs. My understand is the jabs contain the mark, but not the first few.

          Also, the strange compliance and brainwashing of those who have taken more than a few clot shots plus msm is quite telling. Apart from the massive injuries that is.

          Word is those sickened by the shot will be healed by the heavenly host if they pray in faith.

    The FBI supposedly had this on their radar, but because they are a criminal organization, they evidently only were looking to use it to their advantage in some way.

    There’s a reason that certain gang members such as MS-13 are so violent, and that reason is their religion.

    There’s also a reason our government decided that places like Long Island needed and influx of gang members from south of the border.

    This has been going on for quite some time. Don’t forget, Nancy Pelosi said these people have a ‘spark of divinity’.

  21. Hockeyguy May 26, 2023 at 10:22 am #

    Always love JHK’s take. There’s so much official propaganda, corruption, cultural decay, sexual deviancy, financial embezzlement, medical tyranny, reality denialism, and chest-beating military obnoxiousness running through every level and every institution of the West, that I have developed my own pet “theory of everything” that attempts to explain where we are and why it’s all happening. In this theory, the West in general – but specifically America – is being deliberately softened, weakened, demoralized, drugged, confused, looted, disarmed, nudged, and propagandized all for the purpose of predictively programming us for a coming war with China that our elites are now starting to saber-rattle about. This war will be framed as another worthless “war for protecting democracy” or “war to protect Taiwan” but the reality is that our elites sold us out long ago, so this will just be the cover story. The reality is that China expects to now take delivery of the assets of the entire country that it’s spent the last 30 years purchasing, with the intention of subjugating/assimilating those that will comply with authoritarian technocratic surveillance government, or imprison or outright kill anyone that resists or refuses to get onboard with the new CCP program. This will all start to happen or be underway by 2025, and America’s pathetically weakened military of trannies, degenerates, and psychotropically-medicated low-T soy males will barely be a speed bump for China as it steamrolls us. Thus, the elites have their cover and can then ensure that there’s ZERO populist or democratic threat to their power or their profits. The CCP style of authoritarian capitalism will give them the ability to implement full granular control over every living being – what we are allowed to do, where we are allowed to go, what we are allowed to believe, what we are allowed to say, what we are allowed to protest, what we are allowed to have. Full control will have been achieved by the elites. Game, set, match.

    • MaryQueen May 26, 2023 at 10:52 am #

      Indeed, Kevin Rudd, ex-PM of Australia (number 1 country on the WEF globalism list) said at a talk at the college I worked at in 2016 that we were in for a “hot war” with China (he chairs a major think-tank/NGO in China and speaks fluent Mandarin).

      They warned us, and even in Russia, the WEF technocracy is rolling out. Ukraine is first, they had to be decimated in order to assure compliance, I’m guessing.

      So you are pretty spot on but whether China actually invades us or we just cave from afar, it looks like the same result.

      I think you are correct. I’ve thought for awhile that the long-term (or maybe even short-term) agenda is to deliver us bound to China. The clear objective is to weaken the US so completely at all levels that there can be no effective resistance.

      It appears to me that our highest government officials have been selling us out to China for a decade or two.

    You guys worry too much. It’s evidence of still being in the negotiation or anger stage.

    (Hence either apathy or hopeful expectations in a saviour like Jr or Trump.)

    Use a little inductive reasoning; reverse what you see occurring and surmise what it represents.

    Is it indicative of organized, purposeful lives focused on orderly society and productive output?

    Is it sustainable? Maybe for the short term against captured domestic populations. But what about foreign opposition?

    We know for absolute fact that Russia and China are organized around traditional, conservative values.

    We also know they’re working together in a technical and production partnership to not just resist the west, but to actually defeat it.

    If you live in the USA and actually see and experience what is occurring, do you then conclude this force can defeat all comers and impose a 1000 year Reich?

      Speaking of the “experts” on death and dying, I checked out a more recent book by Raymond A. Moody from my local library, because I remembered his work from back in the 70s.

      To my surprise, from reading the book I realized the guy is, to put it politely, batshit.

      What we’re seeing in the US, and its Empire allies, is the decline that was and is inevitable. Yes, it’s a tired thing to say, but consider the decline of Rome. Different era and culture, but some striking similarities, especially with non-productive activities, gross entertainment, and general decadence. Then……it fell. The US is also going to fall. Soon. Rome took a few centuries to decline before its fall. Ours will be measured over a few decades.

      • swazimoto May 26, 2023 at 11:17 am #

        Speaking of the fall of Rome…at this juncture in human events that gives every evidence of rushing toward a “new era”/Brave New World/NWO it is instructive to revisit the dream of Nebuchanezzer, the Babylonian regent who has his very own chapter in the book of Daniel of the Old Testament. Nebu’s dream (as was revealed and interpreted by Daniel) foretells the world empire in correct sequence long before they took the stage. How is this possible? God, being outside of time and space, sees all and transmits it to his people as divine proof of the reliability of His message.
        The dream was a colossus: gold head: Babylon, silver chest: Medo-Persians, brass loins: Alexander the Great, iron legs: Western Rome & Eastern Rome (Constantinople), feet and toes of iron mixed with clay: Western European kingdoms that are in turn shattered by a rock that becomes a mountain and fills the entire earth which is the coming Messianic kingdom ruled by Yeshua ha’Mashiach for 1,000 years fulfilling the prophecy of Samuel proclaimed to King David that his descendant would take the Davidic throne and whose kingdom would have no end.
        Lots of historical background to make my point that TPTB are striving to establish their empires but the final act is already decided and they will be utterly annihilated. God is getting the attention of many who have been “asleep in the light” waking them up to what is unfurling, bringing the world to its knees. Yeshua is the cornerstone the builders rejected. God has a destiny for the Jews and Gentiles alike. Yeshua will not be denied! He says: what does it profit a man to gain the whole world at the cost of his soul?

          As for Daniel’s 70th week, being on the brink thereof. Bullshit.

            Jews are simply the ones who didn’t get on the boat; who didn’t drink the new wine in new skins. They weren’t excluded, they excluded themselves.

            Zionist Christianity as such is simply an utter and complete fall from grace. To use their lingo, “Replacement Theology” IS real Christianity.

            @ Mick:

            I once used the book of Daniel to calculate the time of the coming of the Messiah, and it was accurate. (I’m assuming my math was right.)

            The thing you have to remember about history and the related prophecy is that history is cyclical.

            I don’t know if we’re in the End Times. Jesus himself said that he did not know the time, so I assume this is above my pay grade. Nevertheless, if you consider “the signs of the times,” it does look like we might be in the End Times.
            If so, it will be a rough ride. People seem to forget that the End Times involve a long era of terrible suffering for humanity–both the good and the bad: and “If God had not .shortened the time, no flesh would be saved.” (I’m not a believer in the Rapture, where the good get to skip out. I see no convincing scriptural basis for it.)

      Ocular Manifestations after Receiving COVID-19 Vaccine: A Systematic Review

      5. Conclusions

      The reviewed studies raised our concern for the ocular manifestations after COVID-19 vaccination. However, the overall benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine in preventing COVID-19 are well established. The incidence rate of ocular manifestations after receiving the vaccine is considerably lower than the prevalence rate of ocular symptoms in COVID-19 patients [51]. In conclusion, although ocular manifestations may develop after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, people are still encouraged to get vaccinated since the benefits outweigh the risks.

        @ swazimoto:

        You might get a kick out of reading Mark Twain’s back-translation of “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.” The story was translated into French, and French reviewers said it was not all that funny. So Twain translated the French version back into English. The result is hilarious.

        Here is Twain’s back-translation at the end of the story, to give you an idea:

        “Eh bien! I no see not that that frog has nothing of better than another .”
        Smiley himself scratched long-times the head, the eyes fixed upon Daniel, until that which at last he said:
        “I me demand how the devil it makes itself that this beast has re- fused. Is it that she had something? One would believe that she is stuffed.”
        He grasped Daniel by the skin of the neck, him lifted and said:
        “The wolf me bite if he no weigh not five pounds.”

        The back-translation starts on page 40 at this link: httpX://archive.org/details/jumpingfrogineng00twai_0/page/40/mode/2up?view=theater

      As far as the trans issue goes, I have a hard time applying logic to their desired outcomes vis-a-vis identification and pronouns, etc.

      Because, it seems to me rather absurd that someone unable to accept who they are absolutely demands another accept who they would like to be.

      I feel most people do accept that there are people with different sexual preferences. Different dress, hair, lifestyle preferences and on and on.

      I feel most people readily adjust to the committed non-militant trans people who have made the effort seamlessly transition. Most people never are aware that the man they are speaking to was born a woman.
      The issue many people have is the (almost always) non-committal man who still sheaths his sword, but now in satin, yet demands he be referred to as a woman. He’s not all-in, but you better be.
      As far as the “intersexed” go, your deliberate confusion will lead to confused interactions. Own it. I’m not using an invented word for a dude with a stache wearing a cocktail dress with work boots.

          I read an article on a local news outlet and author kept referring to a woman, who was a victim of a crime, as a “women.” Last I checked women was plural for a woman. Morons. All of them. Oops, wait, there are no such things as women anymore so I guess this comment is invalid.

          My favorite is when morons say “I could care less” about something which actually means they care about it enough that they could still care less. Or when they say “jewlery” instead of “jewelry”. Or “nucular” instead of “nuclear”.

            “Nuculer” was a favorite LBJism. No one dared correct him. He also served as a Representative and Senator but until his dying day called the legislative body “Congers”.

    “There’s something definitely programmatic about the way the drag queens were rolled out into the kiddie korners the past year. It doesn’t feel organic, shall we say, but rather directed, like a sinister grand opera. And the effort to enlist and initiate schoolchildren into a psychodrama of hyperbolic sexual confusion looks absolutely orchestrated.”

    Absolutely.

    Did anyone catch Hillary’s latest salvo upon Deepstatist’s Twitter entry into the GOP nomination?

    She stated in so many words that he, and Florida, are against blacks and… gays and trans.

    The Democrats thrive on wedges. They have abandoned their traditional working-class voters, and many of them, in turn, have abandoned a party who has aligned with big finance, big tech, big pharma, etc., etc.

    The Democrats cannot entirely count on the needed black vote. This is why Soros funds BLM only during election season. This is when they get provoked, when big media concentrates on alleged racist calamities, and they work in tandem to usher them into the voter’s box. They even made it easier by getting rid of ID requirements and letting them vote from home.

    Yet even this is not enough.

    So they need to splinter off some more voters.
    The wedge (issue) goes in and the hammer (gov/tech/media/corp) comes down.
    Voila, a new victim group in need of a party for a party in need of new voters.

    It is clear as day.
    Create new groups who will seek representation and protection form your gang.

    Regrettably, we live in a world where victimization not only confers status (for the plain-Jane white people) it provides protection.
    Look at all the groups who dare not let a critical word be muttered.

    Thanks to the constant programming by social/MS media these victim groups are also status multipliers. It’s the cool new thing.
    You are no longer just a boring vanilla white person!

      Edge, love your post. I do disagree with one comment. You said the Democrats cannot entirely count on the needed black vote. In the last elections blacks again overwhelmingly voted for Democrats. The black people are lost and clueless. Brainwashed beyond repair. They overwhelmingly support the very political party that seeks their destruction.

      You are also talking as if elections matter. We all know they don’t. They are rigged from the very beginning when they throw two shitty candidates at us and tell us to pick one all the way down to the ballot harvesters and the fraudulent vote counts. I have no faith in the system. It is rotten to its core and the Republicans have no desire to fix it. What do we do then? I don’t know.

      • Edge Lord May 26, 2023 at 4:01 pm #

        They can count on the vast majority voting D, but they cannot count on the vast majority being inspired to vote for some old, crooked cracker.

        ” What do we do then? I don’t know.”

        What do we do? It’s called “secession”. That’s the only cure that will work. The other ideas that depend on the same types of people still being in power and running things will not work. It’s the reason that republics and democracies all fail on average at around the 250 year mark. Past that point and corruption and system wide failure take hold.

        The Republicans, at this stage of the game, are controlled opposition.

        And just below them you have the carnival barkers like Ted Cruz.

        People who perform for the camera on hot-button issues and talk a good game but do absolutely nothing beyond feigning interest.

        There is Rand Paul, but this guy doesn’t even have the huevos to call out his state’s other senator.

        Boebert, Gaetz, MTG? Perhaps, like the squad, they’re an act to demonstrate that the fringe republicans have a voice.

        Deepstatis? A plant.

    Nice post today, Jim.

    Corporations (which we’ve been told by the Supremes are people too) and the boards that cower behind them, are more afraid of the woke mob than they are of their own shareholders and customers. Walmart is more afraid of pissing off the alphabet-soup-qwerty crowd than they are of running their business so unprofitably that they have to close all of their Chicago stores. The metrics are no longer book value and and earnings per share, but rather DEI and ESG scores. Invest and shop accordingly folks. It matters. You may not think your tiny (or my tiny) investment or spending adjustments matter, but they do. And the news media is the absolute last entity that will admit it to you. Safeguard where you invest and where you spend as if the future depended upon it, because it does. You aren’t just punishing the evil actors, you are rewarding the good guys. It has double the impact you think it does.

    I’ve been out of pocket for the last six weeks or so managing my dad’s transition into assisted living. This next week is the big move. Wish us luck.

        Yes, the end stage of Capitalism. So if the end was evil, what does that make every stage that led to it? Good?

        Love of money is the root of all evil . The earlier stages are necessary evils (or relative goods) to distribute ownership and wealth. The later stages do the opposite.

        Only a strong Government can stop this ineluctable process from its final stage. Fascism or National Socialism whose belief systems are utterly opposed to the rule of Economics and the Economic Man as produced by Capitalism/Communism (or the mid-point of the line, Socialism).

          “Only a strong Government can stop this ineluctable process from its final stage. Fascism or National Socialism………..”

          Nope. During the Long Emergency we won’t have the resources to support a strong central government. Power will become local and the US empire will be dead. And with an unreliable electric grid all the spying and the dreams of digital this and that will vanish.

            We will have to be a bit wary of that “local power”–the nature of which will vary, depending on your location. There will be a power vacuum. In some areas it will be filled by Mexican drug cartels. And every rural area has it’s little cadre of “elites,” who are used to being in control: tinpot lords and ladies who will not take to doing their own laundry. All of these types have always ultimately depended on the federal government for their positions, incomes, and political power, attained through subsides (ag subsidies), positions within the legal system (judges, lawyers, elected officials, school board members), and government jobs (teachers, cops, courthouse clerical staff). In rural areas, most of these people are related to each other and are drawn from a handful of families. While I don’t have much faith in their ability to organize to restore themselves to the top of some feudal-like system (most of them are dumb as a box of rocks), they will certainly try.

      Peaceful secession is a possible solution. But only after the dollar and the empire built on it is dead and gone. That time may be coming much sooner than planned if we get into a full scale land war with Russia. Russia and China will put a final end to all our idiotic dreams of world domination. We’ll be going back home, closing all our military bases overseas, and trying to cope with a hopeless and horrific domestic crisis. That crisis will result from the US losing access to imported goods, services, and raw materials.

    “In this edition of SPOTM: Dolly Parton is a one-eyed “rockstar”; Kanye’s new wife models a cross on her butt; Also: More proof that the occult elite’s agenda of gender-blurring mixed with outright satanism is reaching new levels of insanity.”

    vigilantcitizen.com/pics-of-the-month/symbolic-pics-of-the-month-05-23/

    I am probably only one of about ten people in the world who never liked Dolly Parton. I hated her songs and vocals. I hated her hokey charm and her oversized tits.

    Now I can see that I was right to suspect the “Holy Wonderfulness” of her was concocted BS. She’s sold her soul to Satan as well. And, since she looks remarkable for 77, my bet is that she’s consumed her share of adenochrome.

      Dolly Parton started out being a fun, original singer and actress, like in 9 to 5, who didn’t seem to take herself seriously. But a steely ambition is now on display and a willingness to fleece as many as possible at Dollywood.

      I look at women like her who refuse to grow old gracefully and cling to the appearance of youth long after biology says it should be gone and wonder what’s at their core. Someone who looks exactly like they did at 20 is Nicole Kidman — she looks so young for her age it’s creepy.

        Dolly Parton’s empire will collapse and implode right along with the US empire. Once the US has no more resources available to provide everyone with family vacations in Gatlinburg – all of Dolly’s enterprises there will be boarded up and eventually scrapped – along with all the other tourist garbage that has infected and ruined this once spectacularly scenic mountain area. Industrial tourism and overdevelopment have completely ruined this entire area. A hundred years from now it will very likely be mostly wilderness again – the way God intended it.

      Tolstoy wrote The Life of Jesus: The Gospel in Brief after studying the New Testament and analyzing it for years. If anyone is interested in understanding the Gospels and find them as confusing as I did, it’s a good book to help clarify Jesus’ primary message — don’t put yourself first, be kind to other people and anyone who worships material success as the primary goal of life has missed the boat. Of course, that’s just my interpretation.

      My thoughts exactly. This isn’t about money for these people. They don’t give a rat’s ass about profits. They are on a moral crusade, a holy war against Christianity and every other soul out there who believes in a moral code of righteousness.

      I often wonder if the Antichrist is not a person at all. It makes more sense to me that the Antichrist is everything that stands against Christ and his gospel. Worshipping Satanic mockeries of everything that is good and holy, such as the union of a man and a woman and the nuclear family, is worship of Satan himself and thus anti-Christ.

      Many many many people no longer worship Christ but whole heartedly embrace and endorse Satanic principles.

          If you think about, fiat money is a future claim on the labor of others. The normal person exchanges his own labor for a future claim on the labor of others. If this is the way you go about getting money, you are unlikely to amass a whole lot of it.

          You can only obtain money in great excess of your ability to work for it by lying, cheating, stealing. But if you can obtain very large amounts of money, what you’ve really done is amass an immense amount of claims on other people’s labor (in return for nothing). This is a mechanism for slavery.

      The entire western system of private capital is based entirely on energy surplus. That is because credit backed money needs to constantly expand (productive economic growth) in order to create sufficient funds to pay accrued interest on prior tranches.

      In other words, on a finite planet, it is system that was always doomed to fail; the issue isn’t the eventuality, but rather one of timing.

      Knowing this fundamental fact, and knowing the actual current state of economically accesible reserves – both dometically and globally – makes it a trivial exercise to map a projected end point.

      Knowing the timing of this event then gives those who understand the underlying dynamics sufficient time in order to prepare, survive and perhaps even thrive in a post collapse landscape.

      A core part of this survival strategy is to thwart, throw off and confuse potentional competitors for the last few remaining seats on the row boats.

      The intentional and deliberate destruction of a healthy, funcional society is an integral part in this survival strategy. I have consistently stated – often confused for advocacy – it’s an entirely logical and clever approach for those playing king of the hill.

      It’s the responsibility of the common people to figure it out and device some kind of defensive response if they wish to survive. Crying and complaining aint a solution.

        I completely agree with your summary. The elites are choosing the most corrupt and corruptable people to be the face that the population gets to hate on. They are simultaneously indoctrinating the youngest with radical ideas about sex, gender, money, fairness, … Everyone born more than 30 years ago has seen an undeniable shift on just about every aspect of their lives. Any sence of reasonableness has been completely ripped out of society.

        The elites have grim plans for 90% of us and will allow the 9.99% who enable them. If they didn’t just have every piece of public and private information in their hands, now they have A.I. in their tool box.

          “They are simultaneously indoctrinating the youngest with radical ideas about sex, gender, money, fairness,”

          “They” again. “They or them” are doing negative things to us?

          And just who are the foot soldiers for this process of indoctrinating? It’s mostly a bunch of delusional female teachers who control us as children. And who are the generals in the industrial/educational complex?

          I view government controlled compulsory education as one manifestation of disembodied evil spirits being in control. As far as I know from reading and listening to John Taylor Gatto and others like him, compulsory education was a gift to us from Prussian Protestant Germany. I like to imagine our ed system as having been born from a fallen angel manifested in some basement dungeon in a Dracula type castle with bats flying around at night. And screams being heard in the darkness. It would very likely be either a Hohenstauffen or Hohenzollern castle with all the atmosphere of child abuse that was rampant in stiff and stolid German Calvinism and Protestantism.

          Napoleon once had whipped the Prussians. In response they decided to militarize their entire ed system and make military type regimented educational training forced on all children. So maybe they’d have a better chance at whipping France the next time. So called “educators” in the USA decided to model our system on the Prussian system. So if you don’t send your kids to school the Prussian cops will eventually show up at your door with guns.

          Bavaria remained Catholic and rejected this Prot/Prussian religious hogwash along with many of the bluenose and uptight attitudes. Go attend the Munich Oktoberfest sometime and get yourself puking drunk like everyone else. And if you are libertine enough maybe even have an Oktoberfest orgy after you get home and yer still wasted. This festival started as part of a giant public wedding party and beer blowout for King Ludwig I I believe it was. Southern Catholic Germans weren’t nearly as hysterical and upset about sex and drinking as the uptight and morose Northern Germans were. Ludwig I was famous for his interest in and love of women and how they looked. His mistresses created zero scandals and concerns untill one of his girlfriends started interferring in government business. When Catholics sin they go to confession and get back in God’s good graces right away. When Protestants sin they are so confused about things you can’t much predict what they are going to do, there’s no easy way out for them.

            Wood,

            “It’s mostly a bunch of delusional female teachers who control us as children.”

            Wait. My late mother was a teacher. A good teacher and role model. Generations of former pupils would meet her on the street and hug her, express appreciation. Teacher is a noble profession. The good ones. I get it that education in general has been colonized, cannibalized, digested, upchucked and reingested, more rancid and rotten every decade.

            I also think the “delusional” you mention is equally shared by men and women.

            And there’s no other gender than men and women, of course.

            I know Bavaria, and Austria, and I think their form of Catholicism is different from my Latin American version growing up. I could explain why but nobody likes long posts. I agree with most of what you say, but the awful half of the human condition is shared half and half by all of humanity: half of women fundamentally good, half not, and the same applies to men, whites, blacks, Samoans and every other biped mammal with opposable thumbs, morals & technology.

        that’s a brutal website that I can’t visit anymore. The awful part is, the material it presents exists. It’s true.

        Mary,

        you’re a good citizen, a vigilant citizen indeed. No, I never chipped in. I’ve supported our host here at times, but I have to avoid that truthful place. It’s like Holocaust literature: I’ve read too much of it. And, as Kurtz would say, “the horror… the horror…” discourages me from reading more. That’s us.

        By the by, the history of types of tortures the Ukranians practiced, the Bandera nazis, but also before and after WW2, is another dark place that exists but we don’t want to look. Things done to children, to pregnant women. Our allies, go figure, our puppets, our South Vietnam.

    “This epic negligence leaves the doors wide open for the broad range of lower-order criminal mischief we’re seeing expressed all around us.”

    This observation is crucial.
    Until now, political corruption, and general corruption, was mostly confined to the big players. The important people.

    Yet, from time-to-time, even these people would be reported, prosecuted, and punished.

    Not so anymore. From deadbeat influence peddling children to stock trading Senatorial spouses. From corrupt investigative organs to domestic spying. Out in the open and unpunished.

    And we, the citizenry, know this.
    This has an affect on society writ large.
    This is what separates 1st world corruption from 3rd world corruption.

    When the little functionaries and low-level bureaucrats see how much the big guys get away with, it is only a short time before corruption trickles down, and they get in on the act.

    Everyday life in America is going to more closely represent everyday life in most of Latin America, and it will not be because of the tens of millions of new migrants alone.

    It will be because crime pays, and government crime pays better.

            How about a prosecutor or a judge?

            An assessor, an inspector, a physician, a bureaucrat?

            I am not saying it does not happen, but it does not happen on any frequency in most places in the United States that resembles a normal part of daily life as it does in many places in this hemisphere.

            It is definitely not “trickle-up” Not by a long-shot.

          • Anthea May 27, 2023 at 11:26 pm #

            I’ve personally seen horrendous levels of corruption at the small-town level. During the real-estate bubble, my little town (population 320) had an incredibly crooked city government. The mayor and city council were all very actively involved in figuring out ways to steal people’s homes and property. They had a number of mechanisms for this, but one of the favorites was to print out a condemnation notice on the city’s computer printer, tack it up on someone’s house, and then send the city cop around to arrest them for “living in a condemned property.”

            This whole proceeding was, of course, completely illegal. Condemning a property is a court action, and not something a council member can just do on a whim.

            They did quite a few other things to try to force people to move and abandon their property–mainly just continual harassment. (Most here are probably old enough to know what that looks like.)

            The objective (in case you’re wondering) was to cause the property to be put up for sale for back taxes, so that someone in city government, or one of their relatives, could buy it for pennies. They also had a city tax auction, separate from the county tax auction, where cronies purchased vacant lots for sums of around $28. This placed a lien on the property in relation to the county tax sales, so you had people in city government literally stealing people’s land.

            The reason the mayor and council were engaged in this was because the real estate bubble had them all convinced that these schemes would make them rich.

            Then the real estate bubble burst, and the crooks were replaced by honest people. I don’t know if the crooks lost their asses or not, but it doesn’t matter much because most of them are dead–and they died before real estate began to reflate.

            So, yeah. I don’t know if corruption starts at the bottom or the top, but I have definitely seen what it looks like at the bottom.

          • Anthea May 27, 2023 at 11:37 pm #

            @ Rulo Deschamps:

            I’ve never lived outside the US, but bribing a cop is chump change compared to the stuff I’ve known cops to engage in. Many are involved in drug dealing. I’ve known of them to have sex with minors, though I don’t know the circumstances. The cops in a nearby small town were involved in a prostitution ring in the town.

            It is very common in rural Missouri for drug dealers and meth labs to pay off the cops, so they don’t have to fear being arrested. Pretty much standard operating procedure.

            Some years ago, one of my acquaintances told me the story about how he had two attorneys and one judge disbarred for accepting bribes. The guy was in the real estate business, and he said that bribes of attorneys and between attorneys (to throw the case) were routine; business as usual. This pissed him off, so he set up a couple of attorneys and a judge, and they were convicted and disbarred.

            Probably the reason cops don’t accept bribes for traffic stops is because there’s no real money in it.

          • Anthea May 27, 2023 at 11:55 pm #

            One of the reasons for all these shenanigans was that the little town was a lake community (a failed real-estate development dating back to about 1970). A beautiful area.

            So it was (perhaps) an unusual situation, in that some of the poorest people in the owned some of the most desirable real estate in the county. And, on top of that, they had the lowest taxes and cheapest utilities in the county. It must have irritated the hell out of many powerful people. At one time, there was a plan afoot to take the entire area, under eminent domain, for its water resources, to supply a nearby town with water.

          • Edge Lord May 28, 2023 at 1:45 pm #

            @ Rulo

            Personally, I prefer bribing the cop or low level funcionario.
            They’re cheaper than our legitimated bribing system known as court fees, fines, and attorney costs.

          • Islander May 28, 2023 at 8:33 pm #

            You guys are stuck on “bribing a cop.”

            Sounds like you tried it.
            Dumb.
            Especially if the cop didn’t know you. ((;-))

            Plus, very small potatoes.

            That is not the form that corruption takes in a small town.

            A lot of money flows through and around every town, every county seat, every state capital.

            You don’t think knowledge is power at every rung of the ladder?

            You don’t think there are pigs at EVERY trough?

            You don’t think that small-town politicians make deals to line their own and their family members’ and their cronies’ pockets?

            Think real esate deals (who knew the railroad was coming through town when they sold of those crappy lots for nothing?).

            Think sweetheart deals.

            Think blackmail.

    Excellent article JHK! Spot on.

    “If that comes to pass, and it’s looking likely, then that will be the last we hear about personal pronouns and trans influencers for a thousand years.”

    Hmmmm. I wonder if this is the last gasp of the Satan controlled wicked world before the one who calls himself Christ, will return and wipe the world of wickedness once and for all and usher in a “millennium” of peace. After all, the Book of Revelation does say that the fall of “The Beast” will be “Great and Marvelous.” As Mr. Kunstler eluded to, when this system we are slaves to finally collapses upon itself it will be great and marvelous.

    the “Beast” in my opinion is the current world ruling oligarchy and the system of fake money they have established. Or in other words, Babylon.

    I find it curious that it was COVID that unleashed the transgender, drag queen, pedophelia madness. Before COVID it was just the gays, lesbians and fornicators bitching and moaning. COVID was a tool, a tool to usher in the madness.

    May God protect the righteous and finally bring justice to the wicked, if you believe in God.

    I don’t believe that Epstein ran a blackmailing operation. I think he ran a party town, and the girls were party favors. Epstein’s Island was where cooperative people were rewarded.

    And I definitely don’t believe that any of them will be “brought to justice”.
    Even before deviance was shifted into high gear, we saw what happened when Wikileaks released the Podesta emails and helpfully included the FBI pedophiliac symbols, so that people could make the connection.

    Who is in a dungeon now? Not John Podesta. Julian Assange.

    Who got banned from all social media and then sued in a kangaroo court for millions of dollars? Alex Jones.

    Who got grilled about Qanon, using the slur that Qanon made “baseless accusations” about elite pedophilia? Trump.

    There will be no exposure of their sex crimes, or mention of adrenochrome allowed.

    As for the debt ceiling, my friend who lives in Dubai and knows more about what is going on with the financial system, has predicted that June will be the month that it all hits the fan.

    I assume that means that this time they will default on the debt, let society dissolve into even more violence, and then roll out the Great Reset.

    Obviously, the first part of the Great Reset is the bankruptcy part.
    I think they’re ready. The debt is unpayable, therefore they will not repay it.
    And I think that the importation of millions of violent men in the last few years is part of the plot.

    Things are about to get really, really bad.

      Some things simply cannot be discussed in courtrooms.

      If you google “Nazis and the occult” you’ll encounter a lot of information, discussion, books, etc. about satanic and wierd spiritual stuff going on behind the scenes in Nazidom. How much of it is true is up to debate, but it is something that should have been discussed at the Nuremburg trials – and wasn’t. I remember reading somewhere that the people managing these trials along with the audience in the Nuremburg courtoom could only imagine a completely material world with no such thing as evil spirits being involved. The few times courtroom discussion headed in this direction the result was nervous laughter or people shaking their heads with amusement. Nobody wanted to contemplate a concept of the Nazis being heavily influenced by evil entities. Instead, the only way to explain their behavior is by coming up with the idea that German culture itself is bad and must be done away with. Nobody wants to confront the notion that maybe the devil influenced them do it. No such thing as fallen angels or devils, right?

      • Jarek May 26, 2023 at 3:23 pm #

        The Nazis crushed the Queer Weimar Republic and burned its nascent epicenter of Trans, the Institute of Sexology.

        People like Woody refuse to distinguish between Weimar and National Socialism.

        Yes, they didn’t like Christianity, not really. But they were tolerating to some extent for the time being.

        They felt it made men weak. They weren’t the first or the last to see it that way. They’re wrong in essence, but in fact, they’re right. It often (not always) does make men weak because it’s misunderstood.

        Woody doesn’t deal with the contradictions, preferring to see Christ as a biker who beat people up or something. The mind grows thru trying to reconcile contradictions, to find the higher third. It’s too much effort for most. They want easy answers….

        • Woodchuck May 26, 2023 at 10:56 pm #

          @ Jarek Ok, I was forced to google the story of the Weimar Republic’s Institute of Sexology in Berlin, it’s a new piece of German history for me.

          There was a time when Berlin was called “Babylon Berlin”. It was a scene that came about after the end of WWI and the old German aristocracy folded up shop completely. They lost any inherited legal authority and titles they once possessed. Kings and Kaisers were no more. Many Germans felt betrayed and swindled by the aristocrats who had led them off into four years of useless slaughter and loss. Not only had people rejected the authority of the bluebloods but they also were in a mood to reject the authority of Christianity.

          Berlin was in Protestant Lutheran territory, and this type of Christianity was particularly obsessed with “sexual sin”. For some reason many people back a century ago and before that had absurd ideas about Jesus and Jehovah being utterly focused on everyone’s personal sex lives. Best I can tell is that the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft was doing a good public service for Germans of the time, helping them with information and some common sense ideas about sex that didn’t involve Protestant hysteria and misinformation.

        • Woodchuck May 26, 2023 at 11:26 pm #

          “They felt it made men weak. They weren’t the first or the last to see it that way. They’re wrong in essence, but in fact, they’re right. It often (not always) does make men weak because it’s misunderstood.”

          This brings up the eternal debate that’s been plaguing Western Christianity for a 1000 years or so. There are groups everywhere claiming to be the real Christians and claiming that other groups are misunderstanding it and doing it wrong.

          Does church make men weak? Yeah, Himmler thought so. But what does Christianity have to do with the actual historical Jesus? The answer might well be “very little”. The historical Jesus was a poor man who walked everywhere and sometimes had dirty feet, stinky clothing, and maybe a lot of body odor in between jumping in creeks and rivers and whatever bathing he could find as a guest in people’s homes. He was illiterate and judging from his parables that had stories about farming and reaping and sowing etc. – he came from backwoods Israel. Years of hard manual labor had made him tough as nails. In his early 30’s he was at peak potency. In terms of physical ability and toughness. He was a match for any tough guys running around today. I don’t recall him ever preaching that living as a frightened and whining pussy was a good idea. Very likely if indeed He showed up today He’d go around telling people He never wanted or needed any of the Church nonsense going on. That priests dressed up in gorgeous clothing living in splendid surroundings had nothing to do with Him. He never once modeled any of that type of behavior or desires.

          • Jarek May 27, 2023 at 12:46 pm #

            Yeah, many pacifists are “tough” in that sense. That was Gandhi’s ideal. Guys “tough” enough to walk all over the place, go without, and brave enough to let themselves get beat up by the British or whoever.

            Get this: He said most of his countrymen liked non-violence because they were cowards. And that only a warrior people like the Sikhs could really understand and practice it. Impressive. Google “Mountain Gandhi” to find out about his Sikh right hand man.

            We don’t know what Christ really thought. We assume he was for non-violence in all cases. But he was violent in the Temple and told the disciples to buy swords. So?

            The Church Fathers, guided by the Holy Spirit, came to another conclusion. If not, we’d all be speaking Arabic, Berber (or whatever it’s called), Turkish, or Mongolian. And be Muslims.

            Is that what Christ would have wanted?

            There’s a place for non-violence: For the religious. For those who have renounced the world. Those who stay in the world and adhere to it are a special case. They depend on others to defend them. Their “dharma” (way) should thus include gratitude to those. The best of the Menonites and Amish pray for the “English” civil authorities who protect them.

            Gibbon, author of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, blame Christianity first and foremost for the decline. It makes men weak.

      I think Epstein’s part in this web is more sinister than being a party guy. A lot of the girls/women on that island have said there were cameras everywhere, even the bathrooms. Having a high level official on tape with an underage girl is powerful blackmail material. I agree there’ll be no exposure for most of them and the only ones sitting in jail or ruined will be the ones they want quiet, like Assange.

      • Paula D May 26, 2023 at 3:01 pm #

        It can only be used for blackmail if the ruling elite wants it to be used.

        That is why Podesta not only walks free, but in in the Biden administration (speaking of open pedophilia, unpunished, what about Biden himself?).

        And if they want to use pedophilia to go after someone, they just say they found porn on their computer. Doesn’t matter if it was planted or not.

        The elites seem to love their parties. They are always getting together and drinking fine wine and eating peacock tongues.

          @ Jarek — Yes.

          @Paula D. — Blackmail is a tool for making sure people do exactly as they’re told. The threat is enough b/c once they’ve exposed the person, they’re no longer useful. Remember Speaker of the House Dennis Hassert? He was allowed to pay hush money for years (and there’s no way Pelosi and other high ranking Democrats didn’t know this) then when they were done keeping him on a leash, exposed him.

          • Paula D May 26, 2023 at 9:26 pm #

            Yes, I remember Dennis. He was fired for abusing boys BEFORE he was elected to the House and then the Speaker.

            Of course they knew.

            That is when I first realized that our leaders are perverts and that is how they are picked in the first place.

            What disgraced man, fired for molesting teenaged boys, would say to himself “Well, now that I’m unemployed, what will I do?
            I know! Run for Congress.”

            He was recruited and then rewarded for compliance with more boys.

            “He was recruited and then rewarded for compliance with more boys.”

            The idea is to compromise people before they run for public office.

  39. neurodoc May 26, 2023 at 1:00 pm #

    Two points in response to another excellent blog by JHK.
    1-From Freud to Lacan to the modern methods of Glen Gabbard and Kernberg, Psychiatry and Psychology have KNOWN about a developmental period called LATENCY. It is a period development period from around age six to puberty, around 12/13 when children have absolutely zero interest in sex or the opposite sex. Prior to that any proposed ‘sexuality’ would have to do with purely emotional relationships with parents. Trying to change this genetically based process will cause irreparable damage to the child. People are playing with fire.

    2-The concept around “a collapsing economy have so disordered millions of minds” is right on target. I’m reading ‘Culture and Inflation in Weimar Germany,’ and it shows in striking detail how disruptive money issues (inflation) affect culture and peoples ‘minds.’ The former was seen in Weimar with various LGBT? EVENTS at theaters, restaurants and bars throughout Berlin and other cities constantly, not just once in a while. Perversion was everywhere and was no longer viewed as ‘abnormal.’ Regarding mental effects of money issues, suicides sky rocketed in number, prostitution became a necessary ‘evil,’ children were abandoned as too expensive, and mass ‘underemployment’ (defined as working one’s ass off and having barely enough spending power to buy a loaf of bread) with severe effects on the self esteem of former bread winners. People became confused about right and wrong, good and evil, and the roles of male and female. Then came a man called hitler.

    Regarding #2, we are clearly headed into a period where the US$ is not only being rejected as payment by over 50% of other countries, and its buying power has dropped severely due to govmint mismanagement, all the while, the morons in the white house claim low inflation and a great economy. Weimar II here in the US is approaching…rapidly.

          The anarchists talk about this – some of them in a dignified way. As the old saying goes, Your mileage may vary.

          I always had a sexuality. No abuse or experience with others. Others have had the same experience.

          And yes, the bad people would be all over this so it’s best to be dogmatic and say kids have no sexuality at all. We live in a very compromised world.

          Jaret gonna Jarek.
          Makes no sense.

          Healthy young children have no interest in sex.

          The latency period is the great period of learning for children. They have the basic tools (can read, think quite analytically), are receptive to training (for sports, musical instruments, etc.), etc.

          They are mentally “free” before the huge changes and distractions of puberty come along to complicate their lives. Sadly, many kids do get derailed during puberty, losing a lot of the self-confidence they had before. For instance, the onset of puberty causes many kids to become extremely self-critical and abandon activities that they enjoyed before such as artwork, or music. They need to be encouraged and their self-esteem should be bolstered, not called into question. Telling them they are in the wrong body does the opposite, obviously.

          It is criminal to mess with their minds and interject sex, especially weird sex, long before they have any natural interest in it.

        • Paula D May 27, 2023 at 3:00 pm #

          I think that what Jarek is trying to say is that he discovered that rubbing his penis felt good at a young age.
          Most kids discover that.

          It does not mean they are “sexual”. A child rubbing their genitals no more means they understand what the sexual organs are used for by adults, (or the variations invented), then it means they understand the physiological/neurological system that transports the neurological signals to the brain that translates those tactile signals into a “that feels good” feedback.

          To use it to further the pedo cause is despicable. Whatever ”brother” is pushing that should be banished from the club immediately.

    “What we might be seeing is the convergence of a world-beating political scandal with an economy-killing financial crisis that will destroy the entire post-WW2 armature of money and credit. That event would usher in a period of appalling turbulence in our everyday life, severing supply chains, killing businesses, and disturbing every imaginable social arrangement as well as public order. If that comes to pass, and it’s looking likely, then that will be the last we hear about personal pronouns and trans influencers for a thousand years.”

    Yes.

    However, a system predicated on the murder, abuse & mutilation of children MUST be ended.

    If there is a massive & overwhelming counterattack against the ruling satanic elites, which shatters economies & destroys society in its current form– this is a Good.

    “… what’s up with the company CEOs… Did they green-light the disastrous Pride Month marketing campaigns based on transgender activism that are suddenly wrecking their businesses?”

    When you have no moral compass… you have no moral compass. When you have no morals… you live without morals. When you take orders from social engineers determined to destroy Western Civilization and turn in into the worst of ages like the decadence of the worst of Greek or Rome or Atlantis… then you cash your check and hope that your eternal punishment isn’t too severe for being a gutless grifter with no morals that worked to destroy society.

    “Satanists don’t actually believe in Satan, he is merely used as a symbol of passion, pride, and liberty.”

    Satan is used as a symbol for anti-God… anti-family… anti right-and-wrong… anti having productive and beneficial values or just living out the worst of your impulses. Satan is the absence of God and all the things that God stands for. It is the substitute worship of the worst impulses of rebellion and ignorance that always lurks under the surface in the human spirit. It is giving in… taking the easy way out… selling out… being a gutless follower of The Dark. It is trying to be the cool kid in class that swears and smokes and chases little kids around until they are terrified. It is a form of bullying by a bully who does not even control his own sad impulses and desperate need for attention because he or she has no self-worth of their own. It is finding meaning in Life by terrorizing others and deriving sick pleasure out of that because they have lost the capacity to experience and appreciate value Good. Because being Good is work… and being an abuser is cowardly and easy.

    “… we are living in a very badly-ordered society these days, a society in which anything goes and nothing matters…”

    The inevitable last stage of a society that no lives with good direction, hopes, and purpose. It is the worst of indulgence because that is all that’s left after all the good things in Life have been stripped away, given up on, or stolen.

    The Normalization of Perversion. That’s the gospel of Our Age. And let’s see where this one-way trip into to the bizarre and sickly takes our once-great and productive Society before it collapses upon itself in a final human dung heap.

    Take the worst people that you have ever known in your life and hand them all the keys to run and control our World. That’s what we have today in our Age of the Degenerate Corrupted.

    So, have a Woked-up bunch of suds… take a stroll down to a Store that Misses the Mark… find something to be outraged about and cause everyone to look at you on anti-social media… and call that a useful and fulfilling life. And see what kind of Society you will leave your kids after that… if you still have the plumbing left to make kids.

    JHK accurately stated:

    “It doesn’t feel organic, shall we say, but rather directed.”

    We appear to have entered a period where the ever increasing power of capital is now colliding with the every increasing power of surveillance (digital as well as more traditional blackmail techniques–like maybe symbolized in the current intrigue/rumors around Bill Gates, the late Epstein and Russian bridge player Mila Ansonova.

    Certainly particular individuals within our intelligence apparatus (NSA, CIA/FBI) now have access to a digital capacity to potentially blackmail anyone, including powerful capitalist oligarchs, through the creation of real time maps of telephone logs and social graphs capable of tracking us retrospectively as well as in real time.

    It just may be that our intelligence community, primarily using its own initiative has now become the autonomous kingpin, directing American domestic and foreign policy as well as all current in our face strategies of polarization and psyche-ops–with the implicit taunt–what are you going to do do about it suckers!

    A Jamaican business owner who leases small cottages as short-term rentals to tourists has said she will be blocking “Black Americans” from renting from her in the future.

    The owner said she rents to people from all over the world but has had difficulty with most of her Black American clientele. She categorized them as “Disrespectful, entitled, unappreciative” and said the reason they are is because they have been spoiled and given too much “free shit” in America.

    She complained that they started fights with each other late at night and said they expected the same treatment in Jamaica that they receive in America, “they think that they can come to Jamaica and can get the same free shit here, and they are nasty about it.” She continued making it clear that she is not saying all Black Americans are the same.

    What is the role of Ritualistic Abortion in society? And, how does Abortion relate to the Female Compulsion of Cleanliness as a way to assuage and to purge subconscious Guilt?

    Norman Bates was compulsively “Clean”.

    “ The purge reflects another characteristic of life in Totalitaria. It dramatizes the fiction that the party is always on the alert to keep itself pure and clean. Psychiatry has demonstrated that the cleanliness compulsion in neurotic individuals is actually a displaced defense against their own inner rage and hostility.

    It plays the same sort of role in communities, and when it is elevated to the level of an officially sanctioned ritual, it reduces the citizenry to infancy. It makes the inhabitants of Totalitaria feel like babies — still struggling to learn their first cleanliness habits, still listening to their parent’s reiterated commands to be clean, be clean, be clean, be good, be good, be good, be loyal, be loyal, be loyal.

    The constant repetition of these commands reinforces each citizen’s sense of guilt, of childishness, and of shame. The totalitarian purge is always accompanied by an elaborate confession ceremonial, in which the accused publicly repents his sins, much as did the witches of the Middle Ages. This is the general formula: “I confess my doubts. Thanks to the criticism of the comrades, I have been able to purify my thinking. I bow in humility to the opinion of my comrades and the Party and am thankful for the opportunity to correct my errors. You enabled me to repudiate my deviational questions. I acknowledge my debt to the selfless leader and the government of the people.”

    The strategy of public expression of shame has two effects: it serves, like the purging rituals themselves, to provoke feelings of childish submissiveness among the people, and, at the same time, it offers each citizen a defense against his own deep-seated psychological problems and feelings of guilt and unworthiness. Somewhere deep inside him, the citizen of Totalitaria knows that he has abdicated his maturity and his responsibility; public purgings relieve his sense of shame. “It is the others who are guilty and dirty, not I,” he thinks.

    “It is they who are constantly plotting and conniving.” But the very things of which he suspects others are also true of himself. He is afraid others will betray him because he cannot be sure in his own mind that he will not betray them. Thus his inner tensions increase, and the purge provides a periodic blood offering to his own fear and to the god of threat.”

      Didn’t Tucker Carlson recently say that Abortion in the US is “Human Sacrifice”? And, didn’t Tucker compare it to Aztec human sacrifice?

      What about the sacrifice of hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians?

      What’s with the “Human Sacrifice”? And, why don’t we call it “Human Sacrifice”?

      Didn’t the ancient Phoenicians used to sacrifice their kids to the god “Baal”? Was this some kind of “Loyalty” Test and Cleansing Ritual like Abortion today?

      In the movie “Saturday Night Fever”, when Tony rebuffs Annette’s sexual advances by telling her in a thick Brooklyn accent that if they “wuz Baal’n then they wouldn’t have no time to practice for the big dance’n competition” was Tony trying to make Annette feel Guilty so that she would try to Cleanse her Guilt by getting an Abortion? I thought that the Italians are Catholics?

    Nicely done Jim, as usual.

    There is a rumor floating around the Internet that this seemingly coordinated campaign to sexualize children and initiate them into marginal behaviors was started to soften up the public for forthcoming shocking revelations contained in the much-whispered-about Jeffrey Epstein archive of videos that show eminent international figures caught in compromising sexual situations that include sexual acts with children.
    JHK

    I hope that it is just that, a ‘rumor floating around’, and that it is also just ‘much-whispered-about’ gossip, nothing more.

    The known sexual escapades of Epstein et al are bad enough, but the formation of an organized effort on this scale to use children in a ‘softening up’ campaign would indicate an evil so embedded and so wicked that the nation’s fall surely must be imminent.

    I just hope it isn’t so.

    • Pucker May 26, 2023 at 8:05 pm #

      Isn’t the preoccupation with Epstein’s “sex crimes” just a dodge and a diversion to distract the public from his financial crimes?

      Yes, some of Epstein’s girls were minors; however, according to the book on Epstein, the youngest girls were 14 years old, which in some US states is “marrying age” provided that the girl’s parents consent to the marriage. I doubt that any of those girls were virgins at the time that they were recruited by Ghislaine Maxwell. Some of the girls were recruited from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. Mar-a-Lago probably recruits girls who are attractive and who provide “Good Service”?

      During one of my Summer jobs in high school, I worked along side a fat redneck who was married to a 14 year old girl. They lived in a trailer out in the sticks. I hated that guy….

      I was in a bar in Vegas once, and the bartender suggested that I try a “Black Russian”.

      I replied: “No, thanks. I’m married.”

        Meanwhile,

        There are at least two nuclear reactors in South Africa; one at Koeberg, in the Cape province, built by the French, and a smaller home-grown one at the nuclear research facility at Pelindaba, near Pretoria.

        The kaffirs haven’t tried to tinker with them, yet. The traitors who turned the country over to the apes had at least enough sense to dismantle all the nuclear bombs first – but that was obviously a no-brainer.

          Not that I would know , but I would guess , yes , that nuclear South Africa has been quietly dropped.

          Though many times trying to figure out what people are thinking , or what their agenda is , is tiresome.

    How did we get to this place where supposed gender-switching is deemed to be the coolest, most progressive thing ever? E.g., the Miller Lite ad where some actress Ilana somebody who I had never heard of demonstrates turning old Miller ads of women in bikinis into compost. Because to display women in that way is so horrible and sexist and oppressive. But men pretending to be the most ostentatious caricatures of women is the coolest and most liberating thing ever.

    Conversely, men displaying traditional male behaviors is the horror of “toxic masculinity”, while women being totally kickass and even altering their bodies to be more masculine is so awesomely empowering.

    Why is every entity with power and influence pushing gender-bending so hard?

    ” What is your favourite Reverend Jim Jones anecdote? ”

    — Pucker

    Well , not an anecdote , and not directly concerning Jones himself. …..

    My interests are a bit funny I suppose . Like in Military Science , among my consuming passions , for example , is how you go about feeding ten thousand men in the field.

    I love Russian tanks , but show me a Russian field kitchen or field bakery and THEN I’m really excited.

    It’s much the same with People’s Temple and Jonestown.

    I’m really interested in the logistics , the demographics , and the sociology of the thing.

    As regarding the fateful and gruesome day everyone focuses on ;

    Obviously everyone was not on board with revolutionary suicide and right now.

    And obviously Jones didn’t kill 800 ( ? ) people all by himself.

    Former Peoples Temple members and survivors say it was mass murder , not mass suicide , and I believe them.

    But that’s where things start to get weird.

    Several years before the move to Jonestown they had pretty much given up on recruiting new members.

    So , while Peoples Temple was about a thousand people , it was a stable thousand people , where pretty much everyone had at least a nodding acquaintance with everyone else.

    Now Peoples Temple kept records , though not exhaustive records , and vague on some points.

    But when you dig into the logistics , demographics , and sociology of Jonestown you eventually come to the realization that there was a police force / prison guards at Jonestown.

    You find that only in the records themselves , though .

    Everything is about Jim Jones himself , and a very few of the higher – ups.

    Survivors and victims seem singularly reluctant to discuss or refer to the Jonestown police force.

    A former Peoples Temple member can tell you all about a 12 year old girl who lived three streets over in Jonestown ,

    but can’t recall any specific details about the armed guards ?

    So as regards the mass suicide / mass murder I come to the conclusion that it is impossible to say exactly what happened because the story you are getting from the victims themselves is a grossly truncated story.

    Clearly a lot of shit is being left out of the story , and / but you don’t know what is being left out.

    I reckon that moral plays almost always seem to focus on individuals because with groups things typically get very murky.

    Like , even victims or outcasts in a group will never the less engage in a lot of covering asses for the group regardless.

    Jonestown is interesting if you like mysteries you CANNOT solve or resolve.

    • MaryQueen May 27, 2023 at 9:32 am #

      Here you go, KesaAnna, more information to maybe answer why the survivors are unable to recall details of the oppressive apparatus needed to keep people in line.

      It comes from research back in the 80s which didn’t really rely on interviews, just various media sources.

      Anyway,…..
      //ratical.org/ratville/JFK/JohnJudge/Jonestown.html

      It doesn’t answer how they fed them. I agree, that is a problem, especially in Ukraine, where the enemy shells gatherings of soldiers. So Russia has to feed them in small groups, or what? I know they just give the Ukrainians MREs, if they feed them at all, but Russia feeds them cooked food. How?

      I assume that in Jonestown some cooked, and the food was paid for by the CIA.

    ” I laughed my ass off when they got punked by the Venezuelan general in the Great Guaido Coup, though. ”

    — Paula D

    I wouldn’t know about Venezuela , but I acutely remember Ngo Dihn Deim , because I was rather fond of the guy.

    You could rightly say , I suppose , that Diem was no prize ?

    The basic trouble was though that by 1950 , already , between French hit squads , CIA hit squads , and , yes , Communist hit squads ,

    there were no halfway – decent nationalist leaders left in South Vietnam.

    The trouble with that is that one thing Vietnam had in common with America is it is fiercely nationalistic and patriotic.

    If America has its Alamo , Vietnam has a dozen Alamos.

    Arguably Diem was the best you could do on that score by that time.

    But , because Diem is fiercely nationalistic and patriotic he very quickly becomes a less than satisfactory puppet.

    Anyway , I think it not really arguable that the puppets they replaced Diem with were much worse.

    All else aside , in my opinion the Vietnam War was already lost when they replaced Diem.

    After Diem there simply was no Republic of South Vietnam.

    ONLY puppets that MUST be propped up.

    Like I said , I liked Diem , so I suppose his being shot is not really funny.

    But it strikes me as funny anyway.

    • Paula D May 27, 2023 at 12:38 pm #

      I would say that Diem was a time that bribing the generals worked for the US.

      The Great Guaido Coup I referred to was a couple of years ago.

      The US had a new leader for Venezuela all picked out, and a team of storm troopers to invade Venezuela, and they had bribed a general who assured them that he would order his troops to turn their guns on Maduro.

      But on the appointed day, the storm troopers and Guaido came over the bridge, the Mighty Wurlitzer of propaganda pulled out all the stops and started singing the tune of People Power, but the general appeared before the public with Madura and exposed the whole plot.

      Now THAT there is funny!

      For a while, the US carried on with the charade, calling Guaido the ”rightful” president of Venezuela (even though most Venezuelans had never heard of him).
      They got the International Community to genuflect to Guaido, and swear fealty to him.
      The worst part was when they confiscated Venezuelan assets, gold, and their oil company and turned the profits over to “Guaido” (the US). That wasn’t funny, it was just the usual looting and corruption.

      Actually, it’s possible that the US still calls Guaido the rightful president of Venezuela, come to think of it.
      They are big on creating reality and visualizing their dreams. Maybe he still identifies as president and they still use his pronouns.
      I don’t know.

      Diem – your fellow Catholic. In a mostly-Buddhist country.

      Which did not really matter in the long run.

      The sad exchange between a young Ho Chi Minh and the wicked John Foster Dulles (or maybe it was Allen – attitudes were interchangeable).

      Ho: “I admire your revolutionary leader George Washington.”

      Dulles (smiling): “Yes, he was a great man.”

      Ho: “I want to secure the independence of my country as he did with yours.”

      Dulles: “I see.”

      Ho: “We will found a socialist republic.”

      Dulles (frowning): “No, that cannot be allowed.”

    ” Can we move the discussion away from VIRTUE SIGNALING our disgust into actionable steps? ”

    Well I don’t know about actionable steps.

    The Good news is that there will be no thousand dollar or million dollar endorsement deals for a Jon Bennet Ramsey if she had lived , like there was for Brooke Shields or Natalie Portman.

    The bad news is that kids as young as five will be working to bring in the tobacco or cotton harvest ,

    and teenagers will commonly be married off as soon as possible , among other reasons , because it is a primary means of determining who gets control of / who can claim inheritance of , five acres or a cow , and that’s pretty important in a world where two – thirds of all wealth is in some way , shape , or form . inherited wealth.

    Actionable ?

    Well I’m afraid there is simply nothing to do until they go broke for real.

    And at that point you will have more pressing priorities than whether you like me , or like what I say.

    ” In the movie “Saturday Night Fever”, when Tony rebuffs Annette’s sexual advances by telling her in a thick Brooklyn accent that if they “wuz Baal’n then they wouldn’t have no time to practice for the big dance’n competition” was Tony trying to make Annette feel Guilty so that she would try to Cleanse her Guilt by getting an Abortion? I thought that the Italians are Catholics? ”

    — Pucker

    No bullshit , I was ruminating on Saturday Night Fever the other day.

    What led into that was another nostalgia piece from the 1970’s.

    I saw an article on now 70 – year – old Diane Keaton.

    The article gives a glowing resume , but oddly not one mention of my Diane Keaton – favorite , Looking For Mr. Goodbar.

    ( I have a movie poster for that movie. The poster was for German movie theatres though )

    I was a big fan of the book . The only book I know of that deals with womens sexuality without romanticization or white wash.

    So you would think it would be prominent in a Diane Keaton resume ?

    They certainly did not leave out that she and Woody Allen are still buddies.

    But perhaps that would be a case of , ” That’s your opinion Ghislaine Maxwell ! ”

    And I suppose I’m hardly an expert on fiction. I reckon that novels and such are only one – fifth of my library ?

    Somehow that led into a rumination on Saturday Night Fever.

    In those days in movies and in fiction in general there was a plot device so common that they even had a name for it ,

    ” The Obligatory Sex Scene ”

    In the obligatory sex scene , though , I scarcely recall any mention of birth control.

    Folks jump into bed , but that’s all.

    Presumably they have magic powers , or the girl is on the pill and that just isn’t mentioned ?

    Well , I vaguely remember that in Saturday Night Fever our hero starts out as a working class dude with a working class girlfriend.

    But then he discovers dance , which doesn’t fit very well with working class culture , especially with him being a guy and all.

    So his working class boyfriend and girlfriend relationship goes on the rocks.

    To win him back , his girlfriend goes to him and hands him a pocket book amount of condoms.

    He gives her a look of disgust , turns on his heel , and that’s the end of that relationship.

    Anyway , right off hand that’s pretty much the only reference to birth control I recall , ??

    and the reference is a negative one.

    I haven’t noticed much in the way of obligatory sex scenes lately , unless maybe it’s a Gay scene.

    But then I suppose I’m out of the loop.

    Like my current favorite reading material is

    ” North Carolina Charters and Constitutions, 1578-1698 ”

    Specifically the Fundamental Constitutions of Carolina , of the Lords Proprietors of Carolina , a blue print for trying to recreate feudalism in colonial America.

    I’m trying to quasi – memorize it , because that’s fun somehow.

    So , yeah , maybe I’m out of the loop.

    Not sure what the point here is, but last night I saw Oliver Stone’s “Nuclear Now!”

    Excellent Very well done, and fact-checked by a top nuclear physicist from MIT, who was there to asnwer questions.

    It was also worth the price of admission to see one of our top local renewables fanboy to freak out and actually speak quite rudely, and cluelessly, to the MIT guy during the Q&A period. Did not ask a question. Basically said the movie was a fantasy, ‘peddling “magic,” and Stone should have made a movie about renewables. It was funny but also infuriating. But, a good examplel of the rabidity of the wind acolytes who are wrecking this neck of the woods, and having crapshoot on the Continental Shelf. Of course the game is fixed for the construction companies via govt subsidies.

    MIT guy pushed back, politely but firmly. He did not say: It is you who are peddling “magic,” not me and not Oliver Stone.

    Former Democrat Tulsi Gabbard:

    “…they’re lurching further and farther towards insanity. Really, there’s no other word that I can find to describe it, you know,” Gabbard replied. “The list of reasons, unfortunately, is long. And I think we will continue to see more and more Americans who maybe call themselves Democrats and are used to but leaving the Democratic Party because of a whole host of reasons. It’s, you know, an elitist cabal of warmongers that’s made of corrupt politicians, the propaganda media, big tech, and the national security state. They are weaponizing the security state to go after political opponents.”

    “They’re undermining our God-given rights and freedoms enshrined in the Constitution,” she continued. “You know, they are seeking to censor and silence anyone who does not agree with them. They’re tearing us apart with identity politics and racializing everything looking at what the NAACP just announced with Florida. I mean, the list, unfortunately, we could do a whole show on all of these things. And I think more and more Americans are seeing clearly what they’re doing not to the party. This isn’t about the party, but it’s really what are they doing to this country and how are they undermining our rights and freedoms in our democracy. That’s really what’s at the heart of this.”

      So they make it so crazy that everyone but the worst nose-ringed, purple-haired Dembot recoils, then they put up DeSantis as the only one who has stood against it.

      The problem is that are education colleges pump out teachers who create new crops of indoctrinated progressives every year. The Democrats can replenish their base as older wiser ones leave.

    What is critical race theory? – James Lindsay.

    It’s a conspiracy theory!

    And of course, it’s racist.

      This is an hour and 30 minutes basically. Do you have any specific bullet points or cliffsnotes to share because that is a major investment of time to get all of that.

      • MaryQueen May 27, 2023 at 6:56 pm #

        No.

        This is not for those who can’t watch a lengthy video or listen to a lengthy podcast.

        There’s your bullet-point.

        Focus on flanking and supporting Jarek and don’t bother with the video. CRT looks like garbage anyway.

        Incidentally, around 45:00, he talks about ‘good whites’ and this is what Jarek once called me, interestingly.

      CRT: Countering Racism Through Racism?

      I’m halfway through the video, but so far it looks like intellectual clusterfuck/garbage.

      Posturing a concern for race/etc. inequity but then talking about so-called white-race privilege/racism seems quite contradictory and like they want to eat their racism and have it too.

      The ‘great’ thing about Jarek et al is that they seem to be helping that along by in part exemplifying what the Woke and/or CRTheorists are arguing. Like a self-fulfilling prophesy.

        “I’m halfway through the video, but so far it looks like intellectual clusterfuck/garbage.” <– not the video, but CRT.

        • MaryQueen May 28, 2023 at 2:01 pm #

          Of course it’s clusterfuck garbage which makes no sense. It’s sad that someone like Lindsay has to parse it out & explain just how much of a clusterfuck it is, because so many fall for it.

            ColourRevolutionTransformation As CriticalRaceTheory?

            I had the video on pause for the day and have about half an hour of it left to watch…

            CRT seems like a convoluted rationalization/underpin/focal-point/religiosity for an ‘internal colour revolution’ currently going on in many, perhaps mostly Western, States, via the so-called Woke/SocialJusticeWarriors/CancelCulturers and their institutions and relateds, like some bigger businesses like Budweiser.

            And in fact, this colour revolution theory seems supported by Lindsay’s often-repeated ‘CRT is as CRT does‘, crutched as it were by storytelling (religious/cultish), ‘feelings’ and historical revisionism, among other religious-/feely-/storytelling-style convolutions.

            Convolutions like that brain logo on the wall behind Lindsay.

    Michael Lind has recently argued:

    “I’m a realist too. I think it takes power to check power and the three institutions that used to empower working class Americans collectively were the local political party, the trade union and the church.

    All three of these countervailing power networks have disintegrated (for different reasons) over the past 50 years.

    Maybe its time to stop whining and to start discussion and debate about building or rebuilding such democratic networks of power that could actually check the presently uncheck power of the college-educated liberal elites.

    • Woodchuck May 27, 2023 at 2:27 pm #

      Only one thing will uncheck the power of the college liberal elites. These parasites are hatched and raised in our school systems. A grinding economic calamity will remove all the resources needed to keep the current educational system going. After the parasite kills the host both entities will die.
