     Didn’t you get the feeling this weekend that we’re living in HG Wells’ classic tale of the earth invaded by sinister alien spacecrafts? Our government is playing the story like a bassoon concerto. “American officials do not know what the objects were, much less their purpose or who sent them,” The New York Times reported, poaching a line from every horror movie of the 1950s. When do the giant ants show up on Fremont Street in Las Vegas?

     Looks like they’ll keep up the suspense as long as possible, too. Oh, we can’t retrieve that thing up in Alaska due to white-out weather conditions… Oh, that other thing — the eight-sided silver tic-tac — it fell into Lake Huron, glug glug… and that first one, the big balloon payload, lies deep in Davy Jones’ Locker now. You’ll have to stand by, folks….

     Let’s face it, all the other mindfucks set in motion by the folks-in-charge are not just losing their mojo — they’re generating a lot of nasty blow-back in the way of widespread distrust of authority and institutional collapse. Even Woked-up Democrat voters begin to suspect that the vaxxes they greeted like a holy deliverance might not be so good for you after all. I’m waiting for Rob Reiner’s head to explode when he starts to notice how many young SAG-AFTRA members are waking up dead in West Hollywood.

      More to the point, you are now correct to suspect that the entire Covid-19 episode, from the design of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus to the gene-modification shots put out by Pfizer and Moderna (erroneously labeled “vaccines”), was a joint Intel-DOD operation, not really a public health crisis. The abiding mystery is… why? Why turn Western Civilization upside down and inside out and then try to pound the whole thing down a rat-hole?

     Frankly, the only angle that makes sense is that our government is captive to a hostile force. The WEF, the WHO, and the UN are the most obvious culprits, certainly the most talked-up, the most active on-the-scene. But until a few years ago these organizations had no real influence on the world. They were bad jokes… only pretending to protect the global community’s interests… actually completely incapable, utterly incompetent. Klaus Schwab, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus? Please! What Muppet factory were they made in? The UN was a mere collective of Third World hustles and rackets. And everybody knew it, but the developed world played along as a sop to these sad-sack nations and their greedy officials because the grift was chump-change.

     You’d have more reason to suspect that those outfits were fronting for something else, and that something might be the CCP. The Marxist culture war against American manners and values is unmistakably a re-play of China’s cultural revolution, with all its insults against reason, tradition, custom, common sense, and due process of law. The titanic wave of Woke lunacy was hatched in the universities over many decades — places easily infiltrated by malign agents — and seeded into political activism on the Left, especially among the Democratic Party — which now has a figurehead president implicated in bribery and treason.

      How and why else has the evidence of those crimes been so sedulously suppressed when it should have been served up to a grand jury post-haste in 2019, as soon as Hunter Biden’s laptop surfaced? The darn thing was absolutely stuffed with a rich documentary record of crime from the lowest (drugs and whores), to the highest (payoffs from foreign actors). The extraordinary lengths that the DOJ and FBI traced to hide it, or pretend to not look inside it, is one of the most transparently degenerate acts ever seen in US history — and continues to this day.

      And now, all of it unwinds rapidly, all the organized deception and lying. You could argue, perhaps, that US government agencies, this aggregation of interests we call the Deep State, just went plumb insane from guilt, fear, and shame over its own long-running, rampant criminality, but even that fails to answer how come, for instance, the CDC is still pushing booster shots of a toxic bio-engineered cocktail that maims and kills people. Are they aiming to reduce the US population on-purpose — at the same time that the DHS is ushering millions from other countries across the border illegally? Is the Deep State working China’s will against us and the rest of the West? Did we collaborate with our adversaries in our own collapse?

      All the usual totemic tropes the Deep State employs to intimidate its opponents — Russia, white supremacy, right-wing extremism, racism, misogyny, transphobia, blah blah — have lost their power to scare the non-insane. Fewer Americans believe the official bullshit about keeping America “safe” from “misinformation.” It’s perfectly obvious now that “misinformation” is a synonym for “the truth.” So, what have they got left? A UFO invasion? Is that what it’s come to? I guess so.

     Forces are aligning now to shake this creaking system down to its foundation. The moment of criticality will most likely come when the financial markets crater and the US dollar gets broken by international ridicule to a near-worthless token of decrepitude. The public can apparently take an awful lot of gaslighting, double-dealing, and derogation. But that all changes when you can’t buy food anymore. The Superbowl is over. Here we are now, in the heart of the heart of winter, waiting for the ground to shift. Reality is out there howling against a cold moon, fixing to run our enemy down, like so much frightened prey. Before long, you’ll see blood on the snow.

    The people of the world are under a total assault upon their very existence, and the American public is the weakest link, at least as far as I can see. Jim’s podcast with Stephan Sander-Faes supports that theory substantially.

    From Trump Derangement Syndrome through Plandemic, failed wars for profit and regime change, financial/economic/societal collapse and WWIII, how much more can people take before they beg for death jabs and overdoses? And are we now not entering the disclosure phase of Alien Invasion or introduction into the lie that humans are the spawn of alien life forms from way back? Time will tell and I don’t think it is going to be pretty. I cannot see any sellout career criminals in suits rushing to the rescue, but perhaps my experiences in the belly of the beast have tainted me.

    So, on this 78th anniversary of the British, (our allies), fire-bombing Dresden and the instant incineration of 135,000 German civilians, let us remind ourselves that we are so fucking special that everything we do is “legal ” and okeydokey. Including nuking hundreds of thousands of civilians in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Japanese loved and respected us for that, right? Damn we are full of it.

      Amen! I have been saying for years that a SkyNet Commie plot from the 1940s and 1950s was never turned off when the Cold War ended. The plot was to sabotage the educational system, to demoralize and destroy the country. The program just kept running, like the old Salt Mill in the oceans.

        I have always cringed at those laying events in the USA at the foot of the CCP.

        But at this point I really do have to wonder—I mean, if one applies the “looks/walks/quacks” rule, it sure does start looking like the CCP is in the mix!

        At the beginning of the madness, in spring 2020, it sure did look like TPTB were salivating at the effective control mechanisms of the CCP and wanted to naturalize them in the West.

        I also wonder whether we in the USA are becoming as savvy at reading official “tea leaves” to figure out the reality behind the “Wizard of Oz” green curtain as were the citizens of the USSR (I have no idea of this concerning the Chinese people).

        Such as their poring over the subtleties of official photos of the Politburo lineup released after meetings, to try to figure which direction the next power play, or ministry reshuffling, or putsch was coming from! Or parsing the use of particular words in particular contexts to divine what is actually implied and what new policy might be in the wings.

        • Beryl of Oyl February 13, 2023 at 11:22 am #

          Jesse Kelly, who I believe has some kind of conservative radio show or podcast, is to me the one who gets it best. He just says he’s fighting communism.

          • Islander February 13, 2023 at 11:26 am #

            “we’re fighting communism”: This is exactly the type of statement that makes me cringe.

            They don’t even have “communism” in China these days.

          • Beryl of Oyl February 13, 2023 at 11:35 am #

            There have always been “friends of the Party” who were allowed to do better, under communism.

            Kelly’s point and I agree with him is that it’s a waste of time to fight all these manifestations of the bigger thing that is going on, as if they were discrete happenings (my words not his) and to not call this out for what it is, because we can’t attach a specific label to it.

            It’s all part of a worldwide attempt to crush Western civilization and install a totalitarian system of some kind.

            “Fighting communism” will do nicely.

          • Jarek February 13, 2023 at 12:08 pm #

            Islander: You’re wondering and then cringing. Your mind is out of control.

            You know the Truth: It’s the Bankers. They’re the apex of the Capitalism/Communism system. Hold onto what you know. Control the lower mind. Don’t let the lower minds of others make it waver from your North Star.

          • Islander February 13, 2023 at 2:15 pm #

            “Kelly’s point and I agree with him is that it’s a waste of time to fight all these manifestations of the bigger thing that is going on, as if they were discrete happenings (my words not his) and to not call this out for what it is, because we can’t attach a specific label to it.”

            A catchall label doesn’t help if it is the wrong label. That is why I cringe.

            If you are looking for a catchall label, a better one IMO is globalism.

            IMO globalism is totalitarian, but that doesn’t equate it to communism.

            Merriam-Webster, “communism”:

            ” a system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed
            b : a theory advocating elimination of private property”

            Number 2 is to enable number 1. That is not what we are currently seeing. I think we are actually seeing the next iteration of capitalism.

            b : a theory advocating elimination of private property”

            Islander, if I understand correctly, you are well aware of the agenda “You will own nothing. And you’ll be happy!” that satisfies a, but you see no evidence or promotion of b?

            Have a look at the 10 year chart of the MERVAL, and ask yourself: What percent of the population could afford to own their property after 2022? Is a “theory” necessary?

          • TPTB-USA February 13, 2023 at 7:22 pm #

            “Have a look at the 10 year chart of the MERVAL …”

            TPTB:

            Re ““You will own nothing. And you’ll be happy!” that satisfies a, but you see no evidence or promotion of b”

            That does not at all align with communism as defined by M-W.

            Communism as defined does not foresee that you will own nothing.

            Communism calls for the distribution of all among the people according to need.

            The WEF plan is you will have nothing.

            Only the WEF members and their families and hangers-on get to keep most of everything and enjoy life on Earth.

            That is not communism
            .
            Even if one views the WEF gang as an international nomenklatura, they are far worse than the Soviet (or Chinese) version because the latter didn’t take everything.

            The WEF does NOT foresee the distribution and sharing of all goods. The WEF plan is to keep most for themselves and the people will own nothing, have no fun, and eat bugs and be totally controlled. This is not communism.

            The reason I said that the CCP seems to be “in the mix” is that I see ideas emanating from China being appropriated by Western/WEF globalist elites in order to achieve their evil totalitarian ends. That doesn’t mean that the CCP or Chinese operatives are actually running the Western/WEF show.

          • Islander February 13, 2023 at 9:06 pm #

            I kind of like the concept of the WEFers being seen as an international nomenklatura.

            Can this term bring them into disprepute??

            Is anyone listening to me???? (:-))

            “Communism calls for the distribution of all among the people according to need. ”

            “Whatever you want, you’ll rent. And it will be delivered by drone.”

            **

            “Only the WEF members and their families and hangers-on get to keep most of everything and enjoy life on Earth.”

            Where can I find this information?

          • Jarek February 14, 2023 at 12:39 am #

            Thus do words get in the way of her understanding.

            Obviously Communism is opposed to human nature and will never be willingly accepted by the vast majority of people. And obviously the Global Elite have no intention of adopting it for themselves, but for us? Yes, of course.

            As an economic system that is. They will “sweeten” the pot with a new universal religion to bolster it. Because left to itself, being so utterly alien to human nature, it invariably changes to something else: Monarchy in the case of North Korea. National Socialism in China. And Fascism in Russia.

            But since it is not the Communism of Marx, Islander can always say it has nothing to do with Communism. Never mind that Communism itself changed itself to become more effective, a la Adorno, Gramsci, etc. The true believers can always prate that it hasn’t failed because it hasn’t been tried yet.

            Jarek: Communism for us but not for them. According to Matthew Johnson, when Trotsky (Lev Bronstein) was assassinated in Mexico it turned out that he had huge sums of money in two locations, NY* and (I think) Geneva, enough to make him a billionaire by today’s measures. And, Johnson asks, why should we not assume that all of the Bolshevik leadership were not like him?

            I cannot remember the name of the Bolshevik leader in the early 1920s, again according to Johnson, whose wife had her bag searched when they were travelling abroad, and it was found to be stuffed with diamonds and jewellery.

            Antony Sutton showed that the USSR was bankrolled by Wall Street and its whole infrastructure was not only funded, but actually built, by western corporations like GE.

            Johnson argues that, whereas criticism of the Soviet Union from the West was muted, where it existed at all, now that there is no longer a Communist regime in Russia the hatred is without restraint.

            I am sure you know all this.

            I want to see the play book. Only WEF members? How about millionaires? How much does it cost to become a WEF member? How about Lori Lightfoot staff? How will this all shape up and shake out? Inquiring minds want to know.

        • Jarek February 13, 2023 at 12:05 pm #

          Communism? We’re really going to go down that blind alley again? Communism is a project of Capitalism. We know who funded the revolutions – the guys at Davos, the bankers. And yes, we know what they want: To reduce the world population to 500 million.

          Mystery mongering is simply weakness and failure at this point.

          As Schwab said, it took a long time to get the stake holders on board. The UN was just a bunch of grifters until then. Now it is a real weapon.

          I believe it is a CCP operation. Gates and Schwab are both heavily invested in China. James probably is unaware that Klaus’s claim to fame is the economic integration of China into Western society. He helped drive investment and technology transfers starting in the late 70s. It is why Xi Jinping personally hung the Chinese reform friendship medal on his neck in the great hall in 2018. The purpose of the ESG operation is to help China snatch up all the cheap energy dense resources. If you research energy use trends at ourworldindata.org you will find that energy use is stagnant or going down in the USA and across Europe. China’s eergy use has skyrocketed to twice that of the USA. CO2 emissions are down in the West but skyrocketing in China. This is driven by coal use. China has been buying up the world’s coal on the cheap. Even from the USA and europe. It is the dirty secret nobody talks about. Schwab and Gates don’t even mention China is the cause of most emissions. They just insist the West cut more!

        So, the decline of America is the result of a plot by the Communist Party of China? I rather imagine we have done it to ourselves out of greed and fear with their being no doubt that the Chinese have helped themselves along with many others.

            And it ain’t China from what I can see. My main reason for sayi9ng this is the creation of a wholly fact-free fantasy in the 1989 Tianianmen Square massacre. it was the students who wanted blood, not the authorities. The question is, how were their young minds corrupted and by whom?

          • Paula D February 16, 2023 at 4:47 pm #

            The usual suspects, Sean, including George Soros and Gene Sharp.

            ”Indeed, as I have written elsewhere, there is rather strong circumstantial evidence that suggests that the CIA and US State Department played a key role in trying to goad on the student protestors at Tiananmen Square; much like the CIA did in Hungary in 1956, in order to provoke a government bloodbath of repression. Around the same time as Tiananmen protests in April-June 1989, the Chinese government banned a Chinese NGO of US operator George Soros, the Fund for the Reform and Opening of China, after interrogating its Chinese director in August 1989 and claiming that the Soros China fund had links to the CIA. The Soros Fund according to Chinese reports had been supported by ousted Communist Party chief Zhao Ziyang.

            Significantly in addition to the Soros Fund, Gene Sharp of the Cambridge Massachusetts Albert Einstein Institution, whose handbooks on “non-violence as a method of warfare” have been the “how-to” textbook for every color revolution to date, was in Beijing days before the Tiananmen events. Then-US Ambassador Lilley himself was a career CIA officer who, like then-President George H.W. Bush, had been in the secretive Yale Skull & Bones society, and who was with Bush at the CIA. The circumstantial evidence points to an attempted US destabilization of China designed to coincide with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1989, with Lilley the likely on-the-ground coordinator.

            When the PLA failed to fill Beijing with the blood of “thousands” of student democracy martyrs, Washington could simply go with fabrication of a fantasy or virtual massacre and, because of its overwhelming control of mainstream media; most of the world could believe the Washington version.”

          The secret speech given by Chinese Defense Minister Chi Haotian to high-level Communist Party Cadres sometime before his retirement in 2003.

          A few excerpts with link to follow:

          “The fact is, our “development” refers to the great revitalization of the Chinese nation, which, of course, is not limited to the land we have now but also includes the whole world.”

          “The reason that the United States remains today is that it has never seen war on its mainland. Once its enemies aim at the mainland, these enemies would reach Washington before its congress finishes debating and authorizes the president to declare war. But for us, we don’t waste time on these trivial things.”

          “What is the third issue we should clinch firmly in order to accomplish our historical mission of national renaissance? It is to hold firmly onto the big “issue of America. This appears to be shocking, but the logic is actually very simple.”

          “Only by using special means to “clean up” America will we be able to lead the Chinese people there. This is the only choice left for us. This is not a matter of whether we are willing to do it or not. What kind of special means is there available for us to “clean up America?”

          “Only by using non-destructive weapons that can kill many people will we be able to reserve America for ourselves.”

          “Biological weapons are unprecedented in their ruthlessness, but if the Americans do not die then the Chinese have to die. If the Chinese people are strapped to the present land, a total societal collapse is bound to take place.”

          “This yellow land has reached the limit of its capacity. One day, who knows how soon it will come, the great collapse will occur any time and more than half the population will have to go.”

          “We must prepare ourselves for two scenarios. If our biological weapons succeed in the surprise attack, the Chinese people will be able to keep their losses at a minimum in the fight against the United States. If, however, the attack fails and triggers a nuclear retaliation from the United States, China would perhaps suffer a catastrophe in which more than half of its population would perish.”

          “The population, even if more than half dies, can be reproduced. But if the Party falls, everything is gone, and forever gone.”

          “If it has to be five or ten years before some breakthrough can be achieved in genetic weapons, we cannot afford to wait any longer.”

          “It is indeed brutal to kill one or two hundred million Americans. But that is the only path that will secure a Chinese century in which the CCP leads the world. We, as revolutionary humanitarians, do not want deaths. But if history confronts us with a choice between deaths of Chinese and those of Americans, we’d have to pick the latter, as, for us, it is more important to safeguard the lives of the Chinese people and the life of our Party.”

            Holy crap ViceGrip the general didn’t pull any punches, did he? Leading the Chinese out of China into new lands of plenty via improvements to what the Nazi’s tried is more than a little bit terrifying.

          • Paula D February 13, 2023 at 4:08 pm #

            That sounds like an American invented speech to me, just like Jarek’s supposed Stalin piece.

            There are millions of Chinese in the USA. Using a biological weapon on the US would therefore kill off millions of Chinese as well, not to mention spread it in China when the Chinese in America visit their families.

            Why would they do that when they can just buy the real estate, which they have been doing? The Chinese own farmland, apartment buildings, ports, Smithfield and other valuable items in the US already.

            Why would they want the rest of the US anyway? Russia is bigger and has more resources and it’s right next door. If they were really looking for more land without people they would kill off the Russians and more over.

            It just doesn’t make sense. The US has antiquated infrastructure and very little industry. Even if the Chinese did kill off all Americans, the crumbling houses, boarded-up warehouses, etc. would be worthless to them.

            So, no, I don’t believe that someone managed to get a Top Secret Speech in which a Chinese bureaucrat laid out a plan to wipe out Americans and takeover the mainland.

          • Walter B February 13, 2023 at 5:29 pm #

            I don’t think it was a top-secret speech Paula, the US just does not report on such things. If you recall, there were and still are a number of US generals that are screaming for a First Strike offensive on China and Russia, the question is whether they have the power to pull it off or not. No, there are definitely those in militaries that want to attack, attack, attack, and there always will be. The generals don’t do the fighting, remember?

            As far as releasing a bioweapon, a lot of think they already have.

          • Walter B February 13, 2023 at 5:31 pm #

            And as far as taking Russia’s resources or ours Paula, Russia would fight, and resources would be lost. Ours can and have already been bought and paid for and our leadership sold out. Clearly, we are the easy mark.

          • Paula D February 13, 2023 at 6:32 pm #

            Well, they are buying resources from Russia also.

            They definitely are a mercantile-oriented people.

            So, my point was that the speech made no sense. If they wanted to take land, instead of buying land, they way they do now, it would make more sense to take the land next door than land thousands of miles away.
            But I don’t believe they are planning to do either. The speech came out of the fevered brain of some American, imo.

            And the bioweapon labs should ALL be shut down, no matter where they are.

            There was no necessity for rebuttal pertaining to this material, as it is not my work product, nor something I had today felt compelled to scurry across the internet to “dig up”.

            I had already been made aware of this material some years ago.

            After having this morning seen Mr. Kunsler’s topic for today with regard to the CCP, I thought it was — as good a time as any — to introduce this material to those who had not yet been made aware of it’s existence.

            For those not aware of J. R. Nyquist, I proffer the following from his site:

            “J.R. Nyquist has written for Newsmax, WorldNetDaily, SierraTimes, Financial Sense and Epoch Times. He is author of the books, ‘Origins of the Fourth World War’, ‘The New Tactics of Global War, and ‘The Fool and His Enemy’.”

            You had stated, “There are millions of Chinese in the USA. Using a biological weapon on the US would therefore kill off millions of Chinese as well, not to mention spread it in China when the Chinese in America visit their families.”

            Within this speech, Chinese Defense Minister Chi Haotian goes into great detail pertaining specifically to the issue of Chinese and their relatives currently living and working within the United States, and what would be done with them, and why.

            Additionally, the entire matter of nearby Russian resources and their utilization-of, or lack thereof by the CCP is discussed at length.

            It would appear that, given your comments, you might have only glanced at the several excerpts I had shared, *without* reading the actual speech — if any.

            The arguments you set forth are entirely ill-founded and not in any way related to the material provided.

          • Paula D February 14, 2023 at 11:09 am #

            OK, Vice, I skimmed the whole speech, even though the first paragraph made me roll my eyes. This is not how the Chinese speak.

            ”Comrades,

            I’m very excited today, because the large-scale online survey sina.com that was done for us showed that our next generation is quite promising and our party’s cause will be carried on. In answering the question, “Will you shoot at women, children and prisoners of war,” more than 80 percent of the respondents answered in the affirmative, exceeding by far our expectations.”

            Seriously? A party leader announces that he is “excited” (can you picture Xi using that term?) about a poll that shows 80% of Chinese people would kill children? That is absurd.

            And then for some reason, after talking about “us” he slips into the third person for China. WTF?

            ”’Ostensibly, in comparison, today’s China is alarmingly similar to Germany back then. Both of them regard themselves as the most superior races; both of them have a history of being exploited by foreign powers and are therefore vindictive; both of them have the tradition of worshipping their own authorities; both of them feel that they have seriously insufficient living space; both of them raise high the two banners of nationalism and socialism and label themselves as “national socialism”; both of them worship “one state, one party, one leader, and one doctrine.”
            Both of them? He is supposedly talking about his own country.

            Why would a Chinese leader spend so much time comparing China to Nazi Germany? And why would he do it in the third person?

            And why would he talk about “secret plans” so openly? If they have a secret plan to take over the world why give a speech about it to the Central Committee?

            I am not convinced by the speech that China wants to take over American land. Again, Russia is right next door and has far more land.
            The speech said nothing about that.

            It was not convincing at all. What Chinese leader would use movies to make an historical point? And then to not even know the correct title of the movie? Seriously?

            And no Chinese leader would use the acronym CCP. The correct acronym is CPC. Only Americans use CCP.

            I think it is an American concoction, straight from a fevered paranoid brain, someone who doesn’t know Chinese history except for what they have seen in the movies, and doesn’t understand how Chinese speeches are written, and doesn’t even know the correct name for the Communist Party of China.

            Nyquist is the preeminent source for anything having to do with China, Russia and particularly the CCP.

            He has incredible personal contacts — including Stanislav Lunev, a former Soviet military officer, the highest-ranking GRU officer to defect from Russia to the United States.

            Nowhere have I mistated or misrepresented this material and it’s source.

            You are the only one to have referred to it as being “Top Secret”, pertaining to the title. Even Walter B corrected you on that.

            Argueing about the syntax utilized by a Chinese Foreign Minister who retired sometime before 2003?

            Examples of how he *should* sound from a Russian website?

            I think it is damn important that the CFN folks be made aware of this material and have an opportunity to evaluate it, if they so choose, without your ongoing attempts to erroneusly discredit it.

            It is certainly not “off-topic”.

            I have no skin in the game.

            Hell, I spent over 2 decades attemping to extinguish my ego.

            Maybe a bearhug.

            (As an Air Force brat I recognize that this is the way that soldiers like to talk – particularly to cowardly civilians.)

            In practice, if you look at history, a modern military organization tends to be remarkably more discreet and careful about potentially suicidal ventures than dumb-ass corrupt politicians (or other purported experts).

            Soldiers, especially those who have seen combat, knows what it is to hurt.

            Hitler complained bitterly about what he perceived as the timidity and excess caution of his military staff. At one point he even praised Stalin for having shot so many generals, saying he should do the same.

            In the case of the Chinese, a notoriously-patient people, neither the Party nor the PLA is ready for a Götterdämmerung.

            The average Chinese citizen, not that far removed from the official insanity of the late 1950s and early 1960s, is doubly-loathe to contemplate giving up the good life they have worked so hard to put in place.

            I base the above in part on personal experience in the PRC in 2017, along with decades of study of that culture. I may be full of sugar and spice and everything nice but I don’t think so.

      The Japanese were amazed at how well we ended up treating them. See the old videos of Japanese women jumping off cliffs before the invasion of Okinawa. They certainly didn’t the peoples they conquered very well. And we certainly didn’t treat the Germans very well.

      • Socrates-Detroit February 13, 2023 at 1:00 pm #

        Please tell us Jarek, how did the Americans mistreated occupied Germany?

        I know how the occupying Germans treated occupied Greece and Serbia. For every German occupied killed, the Germans executed 50 to 100 Greeks or Serbs.

        The Germans attacked Yugoslavia, not vice versa.

        Their Italian allies attacked Greece, not vice versa.

        Yet these countries were occupied by the Germans.

        Sometimes the Germans executed entire villages.

        Maybe you know something I don’t. Did the US Army have a 50:1 ratio in occupied Germany? Did they burn towns after May 1945?

        No, they did not. And for members of the Nazi party who had “skills” got a pass, and had their slate washed clean.

        Am I mistaken?

        The Americans are abusing Germans now, yes.. ECONOMICALLY. With the full support of the German government.

        Even so, there is a big difference between having your electric/gas bill doubled or triple, and being artibrarily summon, put against a wall, and shot.

        • Jarek February 13, 2023 at 5:57 pm #

          The German population was starved at after both wars. And after WW2, Eisenhower murdered hundreds of thousands of German POW’s. He got around the Geneva Convention by calling them something else. He left them in camps that were just barbed wire enclosures without shelters. They died of exposure.

          Meanwhile the Russians and Slavs raped and murdered millions of Germans, both in Germany and on Trail of Tears as the Volga Germans fled. All in all, more Germans died after the outbreak of peace than during the war.

          Millions of other German POW’s died in Siberia or in French work camps.

          You asked. I answered Now you know. Now marvel at how you were lied to.

          There are said to be old news reels showing American troops offering starving German children food and snatching it away. Meanwhile starving German women sold themselves for a candy bar. Sometimes they weren’t paid. This is in addition to the mass rapes the American, French, and British troops engaged in.

          And all of the forgoing is small with what the Devils wanted to do. Google the Kaufman and Morgenthau Plans to genocide the German people.

            And never say anything about the Dresden fire bombing, the Hamburg fire-bombing, the other fire-bombing, the expulsions.

            Yes, the Germans were allowed to survive in return for accepting that they deserved all of the terrible things they endured because of the catastrophe of the Third Reich.

          • Socrates-Detroit February 13, 2023 at 11:30 pm #

            Your comment stated “we” didn’t treat the Germans all that well. I presume you meant the US. Or are you a Russian?

            All this happened, and the Germans themselves have been quiet about it?

            History is written about by the victors.

            My understanding is the biggest trail of European post-war refugees was Germans being expelled from, or fleeing, what had been the eastern part of Germany (Konigsberg, Silesia, East Prussia).

            “There are said to be newsreels..” Anybody can say anything.

            You are correct about post-armistice WW1, when the blockade against Germany continued for about a year after November 11, 1918.

            However, life was tough in post war Europe because it was in ruins, not necessarily because the Americans deliberately starved Germans.

            And, if in fact, the Americans were so cruel to the Germans as you say, well, the Germans had a lot of sins to pay for, didn’t they?

            Many of us know about the Morgenthau plan, and we all know, that is not what happened. No, the US propped up the Germans to enlist them in the Cold War.

            Many of us know the Soviets did rape and kill Germans.

            And many more know of the horrors of the Germans inflicted on occupied Eastern Europe.

            What goes around comes around. Many people here, including myself, believe the bombing of Dresden was criminal. At the same, many of us believe the German occupation of Eastern Europe was more criminal, and bombing Dresden didn’t undo the damage. Now, if as you say, Americans coldly killed German soldiers, well, it wasn’t the tooth fairy that executed tens of thousands of Greek, and other, civilians,or led the starvation of many more. If what you say is true, perhaps the Americans asked them what they did during the war and then sentenced them.

            I seriously doubt it. Many Nazis got a pass, as Americans realized they needed their skills to accelerate the rebuilding of Germany to be the front line facing the Communist bloc, and for the same reason, the Americans were inclined to help the Germans, including the uniformed war criminals who occupied Eastern Europe.

            Your overexaggerated comments and affection for the Austrian mutant mean that if you make some valid point, a lot of people will either not take it seriously or presume the opposite is true.

          • justanotherguy February 14, 2023 at 3:09 pm #

            it is inexcusable that even in this day and age the question of the treatment of german pows and civilians just after ww2 is still open.

            james bacque’s work has withstood many attempts at refutation – his evidence and accompanying footnotes from sources such as KGB files opened after the soviet fall closely corroborate his work in question.

            if you don’t have time to read the books, at least read some of the comments – sure, individual testimony is not “data”, but when first hand accounts and fact after fact comport, it is worth considering.

            it is clear that we american do not want to think about ourselves this way, but it was not all of us. my own uncles, my father’s brother, spent 5 years in occupied germany as an officer, and saw for himself. the morganthau plan was not implemented in total, but its also clear that much of what actually happened was inspired by it.

            and the irony is that hitler and the national socialists were financed by international banking, among those being the union bank of new york, led in that effort by prescott bush, father and grandfather of american presidents.

            all wars are banker wars, and on this, jarek is spot on – regardless of his clumsy, offputting way of saying so.

      Ok not nice to intentionally target civilians but Dresden was Churchill’s revenge for Germany bombing English cities in both WWI AND WWII. There were just as many, if not more, Japanese civilians killed in the fire bombings of their cities which would have had to continue if the A bombs were not dropped which would have led to more deaths than those at Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined.
      If we had to invade Japan our losses would have been horrendous not to mention how many Japanese would have died fighting the invasion which they were planning to do. Read “Thank God For The Atom Bomb” for more details. Like it or not, the Japanese ways of war dating back to the 1930s evince a bit of Schadenfreude for me.

      • Socrates-Detroit February 13, 2023 at 2:41 pm #

        Jackstraw, that is precisely what several prominent Americans in the FDR administration wanted after the war. An agrarian, defanged Germany.

        I actually think the US reconstruction of Germany and Japan was a good (albeit self-serving) thing.

        As for Churchill, given all the misery the British Empire cause the world, all the problems the Brits poured gasoline on, I’m sorry to say, but one injustice of WW2 was that the Germans were unable to inflict the same devastation on British cities that the British and Americans did to the Germans. No offense meant to the English in this space.

        Of course, the British people were not responsible for exacerbating the problems in Palestine, India, and Cyprus, to name just three.

        But that is the way of the world–the masses pay for their leaders.

        I was opposed to the Iraq war. That said, eventually the US “got Saddam”. But millions of Iraqis became displaced, hundreds of thousands died, and the Christian community there was decimated.

        All because Bush junior wanted a war.

        So, if there is a God, and I believe there is, there has gotta some payback for Iraq…and a whole lot more. It’s gonna be a big bill. Plan accordingly.

        And as some one (several actually in various CFN comments) here notes today is “big money”, London, NY, the elite who pull the strings. They’ve been running Western civilization for about 1000 years now… their time is running out, they will get more brazen and desperate. That’s the root cause for British bad behavior, and big money, like the Rothschilds, played European monarchs before Britain’s rise as in “conquer this to pay me that interest plus. No, you say?” then they would bankroll the opponent king to beat the first debtor and make him another debtor.

        In reality, there were actually some military rationales for bombing Dresden. It did have industrial war production and was an important transport and logistic crossroads for the Wehrmacht facing the Russians. What was far more criminal and inexcusable was the bombing by the Brits in particular of militarily irrelevant towns like Pforzheim and Heilbronn whose only crime was to have a railway running through them. At that point in the war, it was pointless attacking them and the only result was a large number of civilian dead.

        • Paula D February 13, 2023 at 6:34 pm #

          In early 1945 they knew the war was almost over and that the USSR would be getting Dresden as part of the agreed-upon decision.

          No. There was no excuse for the Talib Winston Churchill to destroy the most beautiful Baroque and Rococo city in Europe,

          And its civilian population, crammed as the city was with refugees from the East fleeing the advancing Red Army.

          The fire bombing was sadistic.

        @jmar98

        it is clear and was clear in the waning days of the pacific war that to the japanese it was over by june.

        VE day was in the rearview, and the japanese could see the russians pivot to the east – their concern was getting the best terms, and by any means possible, to avoid surrendering to the soviets. by may, japan’s ambassador to moscow, Naotake Sato, sensed stalin’s neutrality by tready, could not be relied on. Sato did not know on may 9 that stalin and the soviets had agree to enter the war against japan within 3 month of VE.

        so the aging summer of 1945 in japan saw the japanese military leadership dancing around the question of terms, occupied as it was by its need to maintain its image of itself.

        on june 22, okinawa fell, and the writing was clearly on the wall. on july 7, emperor hirohito suggested that prime minister suzuki send prince fumimaro konoe, former pm, to moscow to seek terms from america and britian, with soviets as intermediaries.

        the disagreements among american military leadership regarding terms or unconditional surrender cost another month, while progress on the a-bomb reached culmination.

        there is still discussion on whether an invasion would have been necessary. my uncle, after fighting his way across the pacific as a marine with a 1911 and a flashlight, always said the bomb saved him from being in an invasion, because that was the finality of the narrative after the fact.

        even with unconditional surrender, the japanese kept their emperor – which ironically might have been possible if a meeting of the minds and the willingness would have achieved this result before hiroshima and nagasaki.

        i’ve kept, and will keep, this july 31 1995 issue of “the new yorker” with the article that details all of this. i never got around to sharing it with unc to see whether it would change his mind. as a marine, i doubt it.

        but i honestly believe the bombs did not prevent the need for an invasion – japan was done by mid july.

      Well said. Timely reminder for Dresden. Very wrong. And our American privilege is running out by the day.

      The globalists had been content to “slowly” heat the pot with the frog (the American public). However, since Trump, they have accelerated–subverting a lot of what was left of the US legal system, the COVID plandemic lockdowns and untested (aka toxic) mRNA shots, the Ukraine situation, and the US/Western reaction to the “war” of THEIR making, which has vasty accelerated the impending financial/economic decline and squeeze on the public, concurrently with the other costly fiasco of “saving the planet”.

      Can the western media quit using the word genocide every time they talk about the war in Ukraine? A genocide is what happened to the Jews of Europe between 1933 and 1945 or the native Africans who lived under the homicidal reign of Belgian king Leopold II between 1885 and 1908. The war in Ukraine is more of a bloody gang war like the civil war that accompanied the breakup of the former Yugoslavia. Coming from old Slavic stock, I am fully aware of the irrational hatred, deep-seated xenophobia and fanaticism that drive conflict in this region. The ultra-nationalists in Kiev and Moscow are no different from their brethren in Warsaw, Belgrade and Zagreb. Vladimir Putin, for all of his faults, is at least trying to restore some order to the eastern Ukraine and kick out the meddling NATO forces, who are doing the work of Russia’s neighbors who don’t care if NATO’S actions bring about World War Three. They’re only interested in revenge and carving up what’s left of Ukraine among themselves while dismembering Russia in the process.

      • Paula D February 15, 2023 at 3:22 pm #

        I haven’t seen western media talking about genocide in Ukraine.
        I agree with you that the word is not appropriate for the civil war in Ukraine.
        I would also disagree about the Congo. They didn’t try to wipe out the natives, they just worked them to death.

        A more appropriate example would be the natives of America. There was an explicit attempt to kill them all, and after the bloody wars of the 19th century, when the settlers spread from 13 original colonies perched on the east coast to covering the entire middle of the continent, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, there were only 250,000 remaining Indians in the country.

        Now THAT is a genocide!

        But now the winners rewrite the history. After a century of bragging about the Indian Wars, and making movies about it, and proclaiming “The only good Indian is a dead Indian”, it suddenly became politically incorrect to brag, so they simply changed the narrative to “No Indians were harmed in the making of this country, they all died from smallpox.”
        They added “and measles” much later, as vaccine hesitancy spread among parents.

        Only Jarek remains true to the fighting spirit of the cavalry as they massacred their way across Our Country.

    Ah, the “War of the Worlds” catastrophe. My mom growing up in Nazi Munich had the pleasure of attending mandatory Hitler speeches.

More than once she witnessed Hitler joking about the US being so stupid and fearful that you could easily scare them with a story about men from mars invading. Why fear any country that cowardly? And Hitler was also suggesting if the Germans were invaded by real Martians, the German martial spirit would have kicked in instantly and they would have been kicking martian ass everywhere, not cowering in fear next to their radios like the Americans.

        Please. Please. The Russians certainly were instrumental. But we fought in two other fronts to weaken the Germans and facilitate the Russians ability to turn against a remnant of the German military. And there was enormous military and economics assistance to Russia from us. The Russians lost not a single life on the western front, in Italy/Mediterranean front and Northern Africa.

    The Germans are lucky we didn’t incinerate the entire country after they incinerated millions. And Hiroshima and Nagasaki saved countless soldiers lives as well as providing a real life example of nuclear destruction that has so far held off any military use in the world. Also, our deep state black projects have unlocked many secrets of interplanetary travel. At least 90% of UFO sightings are of our own secret craft and if the government says there is an alien invasion it’s their last attempt at a false flag to control the public that has broken free of their previous narratives. But then again, there is a small group of circle jerks here that only believe the “ members” of the peanut gallery.

        @Walter B, I think we sometimes get into a mode of thinking where we speculate based on the subconscious idea that there is a good or even tolerable solution to every problem. One thing that growing older has taught me is that we face many situations that have no good solution, or even one that’s bearable. We get to choose, often, between a list of awful possibilities, none of which anyone would want.

        It’s difficult to face the fact that doing nothing implicates us in the actions of our corrupt government, and attempting to do something about it can result in what has happened to the participants at the Capital on Jan 6 – some of whom are now being pursued for having been on a bus, on their way there. These kinds of “choices” tend to paralyze most people, and I can’t really blame them. No one wants to choose a course that’s morally repellent and for which they’ll have to answer, at the very least to their own conscience,

      Sorry docmartin, but I respectfully disagree with most of what you’ve written. And that’s not to say I’m always right either. Wiping out Hiroshima and Nagasaki was just crude mass murder, nothing else. Japan was on the way to surrender at the time, they were already finished. I would need to see much more than anecdotal evidence that we are doing any interplanetary travel, secret or not.

      That being said, Wernher V Braun in his senior years made the claim many times that space weaponry was a very bad idea. He also predicted that at a future time there would be phony terrorist attacks, followed by phony “alien invasions” orchestrated and carried out by the military industrial complex. A repeat of the “War of the Worlds” production, but this time accompanied by high tech manufactured visual and sound effects.

      • Walter B February 13, 2023 at 10:22 am #

        “Wiping out Hiroshima and Nagasaki was just crude mass murder, nothing else. Japan was on the way to surrender at the time, they were already finished.:

        Chuck…Allow me to…”respectfully disagree”

        In Hirohito’s own words;

        “Moreover, the enemy has begun to employ a new and most cruel bomb, the power of which to do damage is, indeed, incalculable, taking the toll of many innocent lives. Should we continue to fight, not only would it result in an ultimate collapse and obliteration of the Japanese nation, but also it would lead to the total extinction of human civilization.”

        One might consider the above quote a metaphor, and that the Japanese were simply running out of toilet paper, but one would be wrong.

        US military estimated that the Invasion of the Home Islands could result in one million US casualties. To think that the Japanese were ready to surrender dismisses Bushido as an ethic.

        My father was, when the bombs were dropped, being DEROUSED to retrain for the invasion of Japan…

          Why would there have been any need for an invasion costing a million lives? Japan is a relatively small island nation compared to some of the others. If they’d refused to surrender, an all out naval blockade by the US would have completely cut Japan off from the rest of the world and they’d have gone medieval before long and ready to accept surrender. All that we would have needed to do is just sit out there and stop traffic, and if any ordinance continued coming our way, respond with naval and aircraft fire. Japan at that time didn’t have much of a functioning military left.

            As we are seeing very clearly today, an well-worn fact of military life is that if you develop a weapons system, it is going to be used at some point or other. The A Bomb was no different. The likes of maniacs like Curtis Le May were dying to see what it could do.

            Yes, like what the Allies did to Germany before both wars. Google “Judea declares War on Germany”. This was years before the formal outbreak of hostilities. Strangely it’s left out official histories. I wonder who controls publishing? Any ideas?

          A lot of folks here today, and elsewhere, contend the bomb saved tens of thousands, or more, US casualties in an invasion of Japan.

          I have a friend, who feels the same–his father was part of the invasion force.

          My view is different. WHY did the US have to invade Japan?

          A blockade would have the same effect, but it would not be immediate.

          Why did the US insist on unconditional surrender, from both Germany and Japan?

          I think Oliver Stone is onto something, when his (excellent) documentary contends the A-bomb was targeted at Stalin..

          “…see Joe, we don’t need 200 B-29s in one night like we did in Dresden or Hamburg, we just need one now. Don’t get any ideas…”

          In any case, the prevailing view in my circles is that the “A-bomb saved lives.”

          I don’t agree, but it will be a useful argument if/when the Russians deploy WMD to defend their country against the US led attack, to try to neuter the hotheads in the US.

          • Anthea February 14, 2023 at 10:01 am #

            @ Socrates-Detroit:

            I think you make a very good point when you ask, “WHY did the US have to invade Japan?”

            I am not much of a historian, so I have no idea whether Japan was on the point of surrender at the time that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were bombed, nor with how the conflict with Japan was faring in the Pacific. My question would be whether Japan continued to be a threat to the US at that point in time.

            My perspective is that we should never have been involved in WWII at all, and thus at war with neither Japan, nor Germany, nor Italy. Many people have observed that the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was provoked by the US and that our government knew of the attack in advance.

            While it would be an exaggeration to call Pearl Harbor a false flag event, it was, for all practical purposes, a US government op intended to get us into WWII–as a declaration of war against Japan ensured that Germany and Italy would declare war on the US.

            Viewed from this perspective, the bombing of Pearl Harbor being both provoked and permitted by Washington, this was an act of treason on the part of our “leaders” against our own nation. They were accessories in the murder of over 2,000 of our own people at Pearl Harbor and the subsequent deaths of our servicemen in WWII.

            Hence, since we never should have been at war with Japan in the first place, it seems to me like there was no need to continue to pursue the war if we had reached a point in the struggle at which Japan had ceased to be a threat to the US–or a point at which such an outcome could be negotiated.

          • elysianfield February 14, 2023 at 11:20 am #

            The Japanese still had sizeable forces in Manchukuo (Korea), China, and other areas of the Asian Continent. Rather than blockade, and starve the entire Japanese Population, war planners opted for surrender.

          • Paula D February 14, 2023 at 11:32 am #

            Germany surrendered to the USSR in May, 1945.

            The USSR moved troops to the east and was going to invade Japan in August.

            Japan did not want that, so they surrendered.

            As so many people have pointed out, the atomic bombs did a lot of destruction, but so did the fire bombings the US had been inflicting on Japan. Tokyo alone had 16 square miles of city and 100000+ people burned. And the US had waged other fire bombing campaigns, in other cities, on top of that.

            It was the prospect of the Soviet invasion that prompted Japan to surrender, not Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

        My father was on Guam, waiting to invade Japan.

        When they dropped the first bomb and told him it saved his life he accepted that as true.

        When then when they dropped the second one 3 days later, he thought “Why did they do that? They already made their point.”

        My father was not an Establishment propaganda swallowing type, unlike most Americans. He was able to think for himself, even when sitting on an island in Guam in wartime.

        He explained to me later that the bombs were dropped to intimidate the world, especially the USSR, and that Japan was ready to surrender before they were dropped.

            Warren Delano, FDR’s grandfather, made a fortune in the opium trade. He was the primary agent for Russell & Co.
            Later, “During the U.S. Civil War, Delano shipped opium to the Medical Bureau of the U.S. War Department.[8].”

            So, he was an international pusher of opium. The opium was grown and processed in India, where the production was under the control of the so-called Baghdadi Jews, including David Sassoon, who had settled in Calcutta and Bengal. They decamped mostly to Britain (“Postwar the imperial system and open borders that had made the transnational Baghdadi world possible disappeared. “).

            httpX://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baghdadi_Jews

            So, it wasn’t just the English.

            Bostonians and Jews also made fortunes on the opium that destroyed the Chinese social order from within.

            100%. Although I would have done most anything to stay out of the military it became part of my history. One of the valuable lessons learned is you’re not the hot shot you thought you were. There are too many ‘kids’ in this country that need that lesson along with finding out that they are really not that special.

            Look at the revenge the Chinese have had over the opium war. But that was the English! Well, we’re the ones they can get to. And actually it was Indian Jews (the Sassoons of the British East India Company). And since America is run by commericial Jews, well it’s a closer fit than it seems at first.

      The Morganthau plan after the end of WWII was to completely remove Germany’s industrial capacity for manufacturing military weapons. That means the physical destruction/removal of all German manufacturing plants capable of making weapons. This plan never materialized, instead Germany was weakened by new propaganda and garbage taught in their compulsory schools. I’m fiercely opposed to compulsory education, and since Germany was the source of this particular disease, I’m not all that sorry about all their suffering.

      A Morganthau type plan might be necessary regarding the US. We are currently the greatest threat to peace, safety, and life in general on the planet. If we do provoke a world war and we lose, for the project of civilized living to continue, the BRICS nations need to invade us and destroy completely all of our weapons making industries, and the country broken up in such a way that no central government will ever be formed here again to start any more world wars. The Washington DC area would need to have all its residents removed and the city reduced to rubble and sowed with salt. Sorta like what Rome did to Carthage. Russia being an officially Christian nation, maybe this could be done in a relatively humane way.

      • Jarek February 13, 2023 at 12:19 pm #

        Never materialized? A Congressman of German descent when after the Conspirators on the floor of the House, accusing them of planning for genocide.

        Eisenhower backed off and said, Henry, we have to give them something. Morgenthau was embittered, his name being blackened by the scandal. But not too much since the media went quiet on it. How many know today?

        Patton was going to spill the beans too, but never made it back. A dying Jedburgh admitted to his assassination. It’s clear Patton knew who the real enemy was, but he had to follow the orders of his spiritual inferiors.

        • Socrates-Detroit February 13, 2023 at 3:13 pm #

          Jarek, you have some good point, some time, but I hate to rain on your parade.

          Who exactly was Patton serving in WW2? Do you know?

          Who did Eisenhower serve?

          Ultimately, the same people you decry–big capital, Wall St.

          And BTW, globalist Eisenhower is looking at better to me NOW than when I was young and saw him as a tool of the globalists.

          • Jarek February 13, 2023 at 6:09 pm #

            He was a tool. His epistle anent the Military Industrial Complex at the end of his career was just a bit of repentance. Enough? For the murder of hundreds of thousands of German POW’s? Are you insane? He deserves to burn in hell for hundreds of thousands of years.

          • Socrates-Detroit February 13, 2023 at 11:47 pm #

            Jarek, they were all tools of the establishment. Patton was a tool too.

            One could argue that it was an illegitimate war, because Germany did not attack the US. Also, given the Britain subjugated so many people of color, and given the N-a-z-i track record, and Stalin’s track record, the “American” thing to do would be to do nothing and let the three evil empires bludgeon each other to death.

            But, thanks to people like Patton, Eisenhower, LeMay, Bradley, and the others like them, and the legions of officers below them, the Americans were able to get involved and help lay the post-war foundation for a new world order that was more amenable to big money. Don’t you agree with that, JAREK? Because THAT makes a certain amount of sense to me.

            Your hero started the war in Europe. He was not content with just taking the Polish corridor, where the Germans had a point, from the arrogant Polish dictator.

            No, your hero wanted a LOT of Poland. He wanted “Lebensraum”–that’s “living space”.

            And that wasn’t enough. How did invading Yugoslavia, Greece, and then USSR help your hero get out from under the big bankers? Is that where the “money interests” were coming from?

            Perhaps you should look at it this way–if the Americans and Eisenhower were so evil, than it was a given that they should have liquidated all German POWs, in fact any German male who took up arms in WW2 should have been liquidated. And the Morgenthau plan should have been implemented.

            By that standard, the Americans were exceedingly generous.

            “The Conquerors” by court historian, Michael Beschloss. This may be the same guy who asked why Republicans didn’t clap the other day. Despite his Stalinist proclivities and his Tribal sympathies, he tells the truth about what they wanted to do to the Germans.

    • JackStraw February 13, 2023 at 10:57 am #

      Absolutely. As horrific as it was, the use of those bombs illustrated to the world how insane it would be to wage war with them, and most likely tempering the leaders of nuclear nations.

      Those that oppose the use of them on Japan know little of the horror that the Japanese dealt our soldiers and particularly the Chinese citizens. They also don’t seem to comprehend what an invasion would have cost us.

      • Socrates-Detroit February 13, 2023 at 3:22 pm #

        I’ve heard that before. Yes, it’s true, the Japanese were cruel to the Chinese.

        But why was that America’s problem? Because the US of A was so perfect? Please.

        The Americans and other western nations, with special privileges in China, were more humane. But they also exploited the Chinese.

        Why did FDR embargo the Japanese, and drive them to attack? Because popular opinion in 1940-41 was HIGHLY against getting into the war in Europe, to help America’s supposed “British allies”.

        Britain had enslaved half, or more, of the people of color in the world.

        FDR caused the war. FDR got the war he wanted.

        Just like now, the US caused the war–it started it in 2014–in Ukraine. The US got the war it wanted. It wants that war because the West is deluded enough to think that Russia will implode like Iraq or Libya, the West can get the Russian resources and squeeze China.

        It won’t happen that way. The Russian people are motivated, and Russia has a professional military, with nuclear weapons, and the means to deliver them ANYWHERE.

        The Ukraine war won’t end well for most of us in this space, other than those who are in a position to leverage the coming economic chaos and strife in the US to their advantage.

        The only good thing, TODAY, about the US nuking the Japanese in 1945, is that when we push Russia to use nukes tomorrow, hopefully Americans like you will “get it” and put the brakes on the US government; and the rest of the world may say, “bad Russia, but we understand, after all the Americans used them first”.

        • Socrates-Detroit February 13, 2023 at 3:26 pm #

          This Ukraine war also serves to distract the US public, and to “explain” why their standard of living is dropping–and must drop.

          “To support freedom in the Ukraine!”

          I presume 95% or more of those commenting, in this space, are intelligent enough not to buy this BS. But many of your fellow Americans, and even Europeans, DO buy it.

          It’s really a win/win for the elite–as the MODERN American public gets poorer, unlike Americans in 1935, 1940, 50, even 1970, the bulk of Americans today are too ignorant or self-absorbed to do anything about it, or to make the warmongering position of the US government untenable politically to both major parties.

          You’re all over the place. You can’t admit that the same people who torment us now were given the heave ho by Herr Hitler.

          Patton knew in his heart but was too small to quit. He was going to speak out on behalf of German civilians however.

          The new War is a new chance for you to understand: Putin is the new Hitler. Zelensky is Churchill. We’re the Communists.

          • Socrates-Detroit February 14, 2023 at 12:00 am #

            I’m not all over the place.

            If the Austrian mutant was the cure to the power of big money, the cure was worse than the disease.

            In addition to the millions of deaths your hero is directly responsible for, the effort to defeat him left big money/the elite/the globalists/whatever you want to call them, in a much stronger position in 1945 than they were in 1938. They got a UN out of it, a Bretton Woods agreement, and a Cold War, where having helped the USSR get on its feet, big money now had an “adversary” that could be used to make the USA keep a big military and become more indebted, making the money interests and their friends in other industries, even more powerful.

            Putin in NOT the new Hitler.

            More like George Washington of post-communist Russia. Communism. A deviate WESTERN philosophy planted in Russia by desperate Germans in 1917 (understandable–they wanted Russia out of the WW1) and nurtured by Western industrialists and bankers.

            If anything, sadly, it is more accurate to say the USA is the new 3rd Reich, and Russia is the arsenal of freedom.

            Russia is the only major country not subservient to the dollar-denominated system.

            China is working or replacing it, but even China is, today, Feb 13, tied into the dollar system.

            No, I am not “all over the map”. The world is complicated, and I see it as it is, and my comments reflect that.

            I saw a great documentary on Boer Training Camps. The older gent said, They younger guys finally get it. They realize that there can never be any peace with the Blacks. A lot of them got confused by Mandela and all the beautiful words for awhile, but the slaughter of Whites never stopped and has only increased.

            You’re like the young guys. You still think there was a peaceful way out of it – even though their avowed intent was to destroy Germany even before the rise of Hitler. If not by one way than another. Churchill give it all away in his memoirs: Germany refused the New Order and was insisting on real national sovereignty.

            To his credit, he wasn’t consistent and he was sickened when the ship loads of Jamaicans began to unload, with England being treated as one of the losers – which it was. He tried to do something about it but was shouldered aside. The old fool had served his purpose.

            But at least he had a heart somewhere in that decaying bulk. His fine mind had missed the realization that the same condition to be imposed on Germany was to be imposed on the Commonwealth as well.

          I agree completely. WWII was a conflict between the nations of Europe and was none of our concern. Nor were the doings of Japan any our concern. Nations go to war against other nations all the time–more or less continually. Our people and resources should not be sacrificed every time there is a conflict between the Tutsi and the Hutu, or some other conflict, somewhere or other.

        What do you think, BRH, does playing two national anthems indicate this country is no longer one.

        We are at the point of Ghandi’s India of the Balkans in the 90s. The ethical or spiritual separation of this country has been blessed by the NFL, one of the few remaining unifiers. Not a good sign.

        The irony here is that Blacks have more in common with the European side of America, American Blacks are despised in Africa, and the remaining minorities are more aligned with BRICS than America. America’s Black zealots are a really stupid bunch, they have no friends but Whites.

        Will the Black idiocy in the country split it up, could be, especially when there are so many White gimmes that are behind Wokeism.

        For me, the increasing amounts of Chinese crossing both the North and south borders and Canada too, is a much greater concern than the Blacks. Look at the NBA, are they going to play the Chinese, then the Black, then the Star Spangled Banner.

        China is going to take over North America by just sending over its excess population. It is already dominant in Mexico, working with the Cartels, who run the country. The west coast is rapidly becoming Little China. Demographics are shifting everywhere.

          I buy canned vegetables. They are nothing like home-canned, but I don’t think the quality has deteriorated much, if at all. But many canned prepared foods, like soup and ravioli, are so awful as to be inedible. Campbell’s chicken noodle soup is one of the worst. A few years ago when I was sick and didn’t feel like cooking, I bought that and some canned ravioli. The sauce didn’t seem to have any tomatoes in it, just red food coloring, I suppose. And they have added a touch of cayenne, to give the impression that it has any flavor at all.

          If you want to include canned soup in your preps, your only real option is to cook up a big pot of soup and can it yourself.

            As a prepper since the mid 90’s, I had also FIFO’d that inventory over the years, using the C of M as a crockpot meal base, wih elbow maccaroni usually.

            Having recently nearly depleted that inventory, I recently restocked [2 is 1, and 1 is none] that same exact product.

            I gave some of that new stock a whirl. Same list of ingredients. Same calorie count per serving. Same published dilution procedure. . .

            Wow!.. Crap!.

            Nothing like the original.

            Now. . . .Campbell’s Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup is nowhere to be found!

            @ ViceGrip:

            I think it’s good that you mention cooking oil, as this may slip people’s minds. Walmart sells lard in buckets, which I think are 4 pounds each and should keep indefinitely if unopened. I think it’s best to go with lard, coconut oil, olive oil, and maybe beef tallow. You want the old, traditional fats, rather than the highly processed seed oils. Butter can be turned into ghee, which will keep a long time at room temperature (though not forever), but my experience with making ghee is that the amount of ghee you get from a pound of butter is a little disappointing. I think this is because store-bought butter often has quite a high water content.

      • Suburban_elk February 13, 2023 at 3:31 pm #

        I agree but as far as it goes, my understanding of best canned food for long terms preps, is the old style cans with the flat tops on the top and bottom, that require a can opener, as opposed to the newer ones that have a rounded lid.

        I’ve been buying long shelf life food of late. It’s freeze dried, so it’s not as easy to eat as canned goods. You have to have water and the ability to heat it in order to have an edible meal.

        I also can food myself.

      I had the Super Bowl on but it lost my attention when the damned coin toss took 20 minutes. They had to walk out this black guy or that black girl and point out this or that accomplishment. The all girl fly over was especially heart warming, glad to see that girls can fly planes too. They have an honorary coin, an honorary team captain and captains who stand 15 feet away from the actual coin toss and an honorary coin flipper in addition to the actual team captains (why teams need 4 players to toss a coin will never make sense to me). They had an aged Doug Williams mosey out and hoist the Lombardi trophy pointing out that the man was black and then pointing out that Hurts and Mahommes are both “African American” even though Mahommes has lighter toned skin than that of my own. Hey, did you know that this was the first SuperBowl where a white guy wasn’t the QB for either team? For a sports league that wants to end racism the NFL can’t do nothing but emphasize race, race and more race.
      By the time the coin toss was over I couldn’t take it anymore and wandered off to do more effective things.

      I caught the end of the game and watched the refs cement Kansas City’s win with what should have been a no-call holding penalty.

      The NFL has become such an utter woke joke. I just couldn’t sit and watch it anymore.

        Nobody is going to care about how many copies of Thriller were sold, a hundred years from now.

          Yeah, no. They operate as a people as do those who are raised them up. If Whites can’t rise to that level, they we’re toast.

          Now admit it, You don’t know what I’m talking about, right?

            The real problem is they got the short end of the stick again as February is the shortest month.

            I heard a black man actually complain about that.

            My response was what month is German/English/Dutch month you know white guy month.
            His frothing response was every other month.

            Blacks used to rage that the Championship winning Boston Celtics chose White players on purpose – being perhaps the Whitest team in the league. You know what? They were probably right given that the fans are overwhelmingly White.

            Never mind that the NBA was already around 95% Black. They want it all!

            They aren’t a reasonable people. This isn’t going to end well.

      For the first time since I was a small kid, I didn’t watch the Super Bowl. Well, other than a minute here and there with the sound down.

      I love it that it apparently ended on a controversial referee call.

      Did Philadelphia burn down last night? I haven’t checked.

      I did watch the halftime show on YouTube with the sound down. I just wanted to see the overt satanic symbolism this year.

      All I got to say, is that if an alien race watched that halftime show, they would’ve said, “Wow! this is a bizarre, weird, decadent culture. Totally worthless. Let’s kill ’em all”.

      • Jarek February 13, 2023 at 12:30 pm #

        But anyone who tries to warn us must hate us, right? Like what I was saying about the rapid decline of Poland?

        Self defense experts say the same: If you see a thug lining up on a civilian, and you try to warn the civilian, they will simply become terrified of you. And we hate those whom me we fear, eh Mick? And we also hate those whom we have wronged. And then we project that onto them, and fear them as well.

      • farmgal February 13, 2023 at 1:58 pm #

          The average citizen is either in denial or simply oblivious to the fact that even small level local politics is populated by the criminally corrupt. A threat on my life was made in December of 2019 because I had the votes to be elected mayor and I opposed a criminal enterprise being forced upon our community. I reported the incident to the Sherrif’s office, prosecutor’s office and the NJSP and none of them gave a shit. That is how business is done here. I got through it on my own.

          The next township over just had a committeeman’s house shot at last week, and I do believe that the body count of NJ dead politicians is now at 3 for 2023. It is reality as anything goes, no one really cares, and nothing really matters.

  12. BackRowHeckler February 13, 2023 at 10:14 am #

    So what’s behind the campaign against gas ranges that people have been using in their kitchens for 75 years, and just last week the announcement to restrict clothes dryers and washing machines?

    • BackRowHeckler February 13, 2023 at 10:22 am #

      And the new CAFE standards imposed beginning in 2026 — 60 mpg — are impossible to meet under any existing technology. With the average price of an EV at $75,000 — and that’s for a sh#tbox golfcart model good for hauling a few bags of groceries home from the vegan market — automobiles will be out of reach for all but the wealthiest citizens.

      And this happening now or in the very near future.

        Every time I see an ad on television (when I actually watch television) I laugh out loud. These automakers are committing future suicide. The dollar is collapsing. People are finding it harder and harder to make ends meet much less save a buck or two and these woke auto corporations are shifting operations over to electric vehicles that the majority of people world wide will never be able to afford. It is absolutely astonishing to me how out of touch with reality nearly EVERYONE, other than the consumer actually are.

        The cost of the EV doesn’t include the upgrades one will need to make on the home electrical system needed to adequately and safely charge the damned thing either.

        Nor does the cost of the EV include the increased cost of the electricity for either the business or the home owner. Think the power bill is high now? Wait till you are charging one or two Tesla’s (if you are lucky enough to afford them).

        The EV push will fail because nobody other than the uber rich will be able to afford to drive and charge them and there won’t be enough uber rich to buy enough of them to keep the stock holders happy.

        These people are insane.

        • Woodchuck February 13, 2023 at 10:53 am #

          My guess is that when the US public loses it’s automobile culture, that any rich elites out there still using cars will be subject to kidnapping and banditry by an extremely upset and angry armed public – moving on bikes and motorbikes. If the elites wish to drive in our dystopian future, they might be needing protection from armed vehicles going with them.

          • MaryQueen February 13, 2023 at 11:28 am #

            Exactly. They won’t be able to drive anywhere without the threat of their tires being slashed or people putting nails on streets, etc. Not to mention rampant car-jacking.

            Look for lower speed limits to come back to “save lives”.

            They also extend EV range, making EVs less unpalatable.

            A modern car (anything since 1995 that is!) the mpg penalty at 75mph compared to 55mph is quite minor–your time is worth more, even if you are poor or jobless.

            But on an EV–it will go a lot longer at 55 than 75. That’s just the reality.

          • Paula D February 13, 2023 at 4:18 pm #

            Ha, ha, 60 mph. I’ve been to Austin. I think I got about 3 miles in an hour. It was horrible.

          @canker one of the most entertaining commercials last night was an ad for a Dodge Ram EV. At first I wasn’t sure who the sponsor was. It sounded like a political ad with people complaining about lack of charging power and length of charge then segues into an analogy of erectile disfunction. Pretty funny.

        • ViceGrip February 14, 2023 at 7:43 am #

          Give this some thought:

          Five gallons of oil is required to produce the synthetic rubbers required for a single tire.

          The entire tire manufacturing process that follows requires two additional gallons of oil for that single tire. The manufacturing process uses it to fuel the energy required to prepare the materials and assemble the whole tire.

          When they speak of ‘barrels’ of oil, they are referring to the barrel utilized on a container ship — that would actually be a 42 gallon barrel.

          So, to produce 4 tires for an EV “Green” car requires 28 gallons of oil — slightly over 1/2 of container ship barrel.

          Now, in addition to the 1/2+ barrel of oil for your tires, there are also another 249,999.50 barrels of oil on that average 550-750 ft Ocean-going tank barge.

          Of course, a petroleum product is required in order to get your 1/2 barrel if oil for your tires — and lots if it.

          Last, but not least, the power required to keep your EV car charged is produced by conventional power plants burning oil or gas– both fossil fuels.

          Windmills, solar panels and environmental ‘hopium’ cannot replace any of that — ever!

          No amount of ‘technology’ — greeb or otherwise cab replace that — ever!

          Bottom Line

        60 mpg ain’t happening, at least not on four wheels. As I’ve posted before, it’s going to be very likely that we’ll be owning Honda 125 cc Super Cubs. These are the most popular bikes used in Asia. Our automobiles, SUV’s, pickup trucks etc. will be sold off to Asia, and our new transport will be via small state of the art fuel injected and computer controlled motorbikes that get up to 188 mpg. If you don’t like this, then say hello to your new bicycle powered by YOU and nothing else. Want electric? A an e-bike is in your future – NOT A CAR!

          Yes, bicycles and motorcycles don’t really work well–for the rider–when it’s cold out.

          • Woodchuck February 14, 2023 at 3:43 pm #

            You can dress for cold and make a go of it. Electrically heated gloves and socks are available for bikers. Being comfortable isn’t always a part of being a biker. I used to be a hard core touring motorcycle rider during a spell in my 70’s, eventually marriage and children ended all that in hurry.

            Riding motorbikes can be uncomfortable and a bit dangerous at times regarding weather conditions. One of the craziest things I ever did on a bike was on the Blue Ridge Parkway not far from Asheville NC in January. It was night and the Parkway road was closed due to snow and ice, and there was a bright full moon lighting up the snowy mountain scene so well that I could ride safely enough with all my lights off. I rode around a locked gate and rode for miles on a solo trip with no lights. I used engine braking as much as possible to avoid sliding on snow and to keep tail lights invisible. I was worried some official somebody might see me up there from down in the valley and be waiting at the gate to bust me. I kept my speed down and the entire scene was mine, I was the only one in it. It was very cold and sometimes I’d stop and warm my hands on the exhaust pipes.

            Whoops, that should have been written “during a spell in the 1970’s” – not as in my 70’s – that’s where I’m at right now, and I ain’t out winter motorbike riding – not yet anyway……

      Maybe soon we won’t have much gas here anyway because it’s all going to be sold in liquid form to Europe at greatly inflated prices? I don’t own a clothes dryer, in winter all my stuff dries quickly on racks next to my wood heater. In summer my clothing dries quickly on the line outside or in my hot attic. I can also cook on my wood heater if need be (dunno what I’d do in summer). Washing machines? I’ve used my bathtub before for washing clothing. It’s not that big a deal if you have hot water (also can be made via wood heater). I’ve no clothes dryer and no cable tv account.

      People who don’t know me very well think I’m a weird “greenie” or prepper guy. Not really, I’ve just become used to what would be called a primitive lifestyle, yet I consider myself to be living in comfort just the way I like it.

      • Islander February 13, 2023 at 11:05 am #

        Me, too.

        No dryer. No WASHER.

        Don’t get me going on laundry!!

        Oh, well, . . .

        I use a five-gallon bucket and a laundry “plunger”—do it in the shower. Works fine. And clothes actually last longer.

        But I do have an electric laundry spinner, and this removes almost all of the water so clothes dry very fast.

        When I had a house, first thing I installed was a very nice Japanese-design laundry tree.

        Maybe I should send the design and specs to JHK to publish on his blog!!

        Now I live in an apt., so no laundry line. I have put in extra towel racks in the bathroom and also have an old-fashioned drying rack for larger/more items. (Of course, even the vintage rack is better than the new ones.).

        Dryers are the *most wasteful appliances” bar none. I have written about this for publication, so I know the data. Also, the most dangerous (fires). But I don’t see “greeenies” rushing to downgrade from electric dryers.
        It is a joke.
        In my childhood no one had a dryer in the house. All the laundry was hung out tod ry, and girls had to help with this chore. Plus bring in the dry laundry and fold it properly.

        We could all use a little more “primitive lifestyle.” Long have I believed that we are living in an artificial reality. We all sense it isn’t real and that it could end at any second. That’s why everyone is on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety meds. It’s all wrong and we all know it. Our big houses, fancy cars, lavish electronics and appliances are temporary at best and do not bring the happiness we all seek. Yet we continue to chase after them in hopes that they will make us happy. They never do.

        The most wealthy among us are the most miserable.

        My son is currently living in Mexico and he admires those people. They live on so much less than we do and, for the most part, they are a happier and much less complicated people. Not all, of course, but many are.

        • MaryQueen February 13, 2023 at 11:35 am #

          Very well said, Cankerpuss. I concur. None of that stuff makes people happy but they still chase it (big house, fancy cars, clothes, etc.).

          CP,
          Sooo….you will own nothing and be happy?

          Remember the Chinese, 50 years ago? They were so concerned with the Earth and their environment, they all rode bicycles. Fast forward to today…see any bicycles on their 8 lane elevateds?

          No…those happy, simple Mexicans would walk over your son’s back to achieve your standard of living.

          Human nature.

          • Cankerpuss February 13, 2023 at 12:18 pm #

            Well, we already own a bunch of “stuff” and yet we are probably the unhappiest generations of people that have walked the planet. In our pursuits of chasing property and getting gain we have isolated ourselves from our families and loved ones. Friendships are harder to make and maintain because people don’t stay in the same place for long as they seek out more lucrative employment opportunities or larger homes elsewhere, effectively terminating relationships. Anti-depressant drugs are a multi-billion dollar industry, why? Because we have more than most generations on this Earth have ever had but we are unhappy and miserable. This tells me that the way we are living is not the way we are meant to live. There is a better way to live, a better way to exist. That doesn’t mean we walk away from it all and become a vagabond. Perhaps it simply means that we are satisfied with the 1200 square foot home we can easily afford and stop chasing after the 4000 square foot mcmansion we cannot afford. Perhaps being grateful for that which we have and putting and end to coveting that which we don’t have would result in a calmer, more peaceful existence and more time to focus on those inter-human relationships we all need and crave but lose in our constant pursuit of more “stuff.”

            When you read an obituary, what does it usually include? Some of the deceased’s accomplishments, faith, and mostly family relationships (spouse, children, siblings, parents). Rarely does an obit brag about wealth, power, possessions, etc. Some stuff is necessary for existence but we want too much. Too much greed.

            Not all Mexicans fit the mold I described. I was referring to those who are close to my son. They do live on substantially less than we do. Their lives are less complicated enabling more time to spend with loved ones. Like Americans, not all Mexicans are happy in the lot they inherited and seek to change it through good and evil means. Unfortunately.

            I read a book about an Irish American guy who went to live in a remote part of Ireland. He bought a couple of acres with an old Norman tower (built for self defense against the native tribes). The locals liked him and took to calling him, “M’Lord”.

            They dropped in on each other at all hours of the day: No TV or phone. All that ended it with the advent of electricity. He would drop in on his best friend and catch the friend not really listening and watching an English quiz show out of the corner of his eye. The TVs were always on. The old culture ended almost overnight. People don’t value what they have.

          It’s Monday evening and all the regulars have moved far on down the thread, so possibly no one will read this. But I’ll launch a few words into the hollow void anyway.

          Long have I believed that we are living in an artificial reality. We all sense it isn’t real and that it could end at any second. That’s why everyone is on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety meds.

          Really? No other reasons? Like being actually depressed and anxious? Because they’re in emotional pain, not a vague sensation that it’s all an “artificial reality”?

          Our big houses, fancy cars, lavish electronics and appliances are temporary at best and do not bring the happiness we all seek.

          Something of a straw man, what? People can’t just enjoy worldly goods without imagining they bring that elusive happiness? I appreciate the way Joe Louis put it: “Money can’t buy happiness. But it does steady the nerves.”

          The most wealthy among us are the most miserable.

          The most wealthy can surely be miserable, but no economic class has cornered the market on misery. We are all camels struggling to go through the eye of a needle into the Kingdom of God.

          My son is currently living in Mexico and he admires those people. They live on so much less than we do and, for the most part, they are a happier and much less complicated people.

          I see. That’s why they uncomplicatedly pay people smugglers to sneak them into the materialistic USA by the thousands on any given day.

        We can’t have appliances that use gas for ourselves, because the elites will have first dibs, and the rest will be sold off to the 1%, who aren’t about to rely on windmills and solar panels to keep their own families alive.

      BackRowHeckler,

      The WEF wants your western-civ-level energy usage to be reduced down to what someone’s in say Sub-Sahara Africa is. And they are trying to help you get to that preferred level! I really think you should be more appreciative. The WEF worked hard on this plan.

      These new standards for western civilization will of course NOT apply to those flying around in their private jets.

      • Beryl of Oyl February 13, 2023 at 11:51 am #

        They stuffed the country with 3rd worlders without a thought to the extra drain on energy and the environment, because big corporations wanted them here.

        Now we are told we cannot live in the style we Americans become accustomed to due to our own hard work and ingenuity.

        • Woodchuck February 13, 2023 at 12:33 pm #

          Once the dollar is rejected for use in international trade, “we cannot live in the style we Americans become accustomed to”. I’m quoting Oyl – because we would lack the domestic industrial capacity to manufacture basic living items like shoes, clothing, furniture, kitchen equipment, car parts, electronic stuff etc etc etc. Our lifestyles will change radically for no other reason than the Asian slave laborers stop working for us.

          We will be required to rebuild the type of industrial base we had here in the 50’s. Back in the 60’s we had sewing factories in the USA that made blue jeans. “Made in USA” was a common label on many items. Not anymore. To do that successfully, or moving back to 50’s lifestyle and business model – we’ll need a lot of skilled blue collar workers, laborers, people with business and entrepreneurial skills, engineers, architects etc. Everyone will be required to get back to work and help build/renovate our domestic production facilities that were shipped off to Asia. Everyone will be required to step forward and work in new sweat shop type factories making items like shoes and clothing. Instead of Asians working like mules year after year in uncomfortable and difficult factory conditions, US females will be called upon instead to do sweatshop labor. Can they do this? If they aren’t up to this task, and if American males can’t or won’t do blue collar labor in harsh physical environments such as working in coal mines or out welding in 90 degree heat – we’ll be occupying our land like a bunch of hookwormy ignorant southern sharecropper crackers. We’ll be stinky, dirty, unkempt, malnourished and afflicted by parasites, and barefoot to top it off. No shoes for us because.factory work just isn’t “comfortable”. Nobody out working the mines or making steel – it’s either too dangerous, too hot, or too cold out to be doing that. Is that our future in the Long Emergency?

          • Jarek February 13, 2023 at 12:59 pm #

            Well said. The German National Socialists (Nazis!) saw all this coming and fought against it. But the stupid Capitalist slaves fought against He who would have saved them. As you would have done too if you had lived then as you are now.

            Couldn’t you just have easily said we’ll all be hookwormy, dirty, sorry assed inner city slum dwellers? The reality is we’ll all just be stinky and dirty and exhausted and hookworms will be the least of our problems

            jarek,

            The Austrian with the mustache may not have been an acolyte of the elite, but he served their needs HANDILY.

            No Rothschilds spent time in prison in WW2.

            The war effort allowed the elite to condition Americans and Britons, not to mention the occupied Europeans and the German people themselves to live under totalitarian rule.

            The war required to stop the mustached Austrian who took over Germany resulted in a much more complete World Order, with a new United Nations much more powerful than the League of Nations.

            And after the war, the Austian’s enablers, the people behind the “Arsenal of the 3rd Reich”, like Daimler-Benz, Seimens, IG Farben (ok, that was broken up), and the Quandt family, they all were nice and rich again very soon in the 1950s, while their compatriots were still surrounded by, or even living in, rubble.

            But please, keep praising the demented Austrian mutant, and undercutting whatever logical other points you bring to the table here.

            And yes, I concede, the Germans did get the most unfair end of Versailles. The were blockaded and starved for a year after THEY, in some what good faith, agreed to stop the shooting while they still occupied part of France, on Nov 11, 1918 (how much longer that would have continued can be debated, of course).

          • Jarek February 13, 2023 at 6:19 pm #

            He lost. That’s not a crime. You think the War could have been avoided? You’re wrong. He attacked Russia because Russian forces were massing, preparing to attack him.

            He had little chance against the tremendous powers of Capitalism/Communism. They had to move before other countries copied the model or have you NOT heard about the economic miracle Nazi Germany?

            There was a pause during the early war – “the Sitzkreig”. German agents in the Netherlands pretended to be German resistance and asked British agents what they should do. They were told: Go back on the Gold standard. Allow International Bankers back in. And kill Adolf Hitler.

          • Jarek February 13, 2023 at 6:25 pm #

            You mean the Allies made deals with “Nazi” scientists and industrialists? So they didn’t really believe all that anti-Nazi propaganda? And yeah, maybe many of the rich Germans didn’t either. The War is first and foremost between the Light and Dark in every human heart, what to speak of every family, community, state, and nation.

            Hitler had to deal with imperfect people and dark forces. Does that mean he didn’t believe in National Socialism? Or does that make him a realist – far more so than you!

          • Anthea February 13, 2023 at 7:54 pm #

            The Amish aren’t stinky, dirty, unkempt, or hookwormy. I don’t know how they stack up, education-wise, but they do have their own schools, where kids presumably learn to read, write, and cipher–which is more than our public school system seems to be able to achieve.

            Back when most people did manual labor of some kind, most of them were ignorant. But I’m not sure they were any more ignorant than most people are today.

            I find it annoying that the ideal state for so many people is to be physically motionless, and the surest sign of being “upper class” is to never have to get up out of your chair and walk around.

            Take from an old person: Someday you’ll wish you could still enjoy walking around and other forms of physical exertion. There is great joy it this.

      Re gas ranges, you were asking a while ago about gas prices in the UK. I’ve just had notice of my new direct debit amounts for gas and electricity. We have gas for central heating and for the stove hob. The 2 ovens are electric (the smaller one hardly ever gets used).

      My monthly direct debits have gone from about £85/month for gas and £40-something for electricity this time last year to £215/month (all year, incl. summer) for gas and £75/month for electricity. Quite a leap and I live in a one-bedroom flat. It’s not very energy efficient, because of the old windows, sandstone walls and being on the ground floor. I’m guessing that, since it can’t be retrofitted to match whatever new green building regulations they will bring in, they will eventually just stop supplying gas, electricity and water and put us out on the street. With a bit of luck my Gates-induced heart attack will come first, as I have no inclination to live out my last days on the pavement.

    ” Are they aiming to reduce the US population on-purpose” I think with the CDC’s inclusion of the clot shots for babies regular vaxx updates, the answer is a resounding “YES”.

    I know several families, 4 of them have children under 2. 2 are completely unvaxxed. Never get sick. Healthy, and routine checkups are silly, because all they do is vaxxes.

    2 other children, are existing from one sickness to another. 1 has been hospitalized more than once.

    4 children does not make a scientific argument, but in my view, most young children under 3 these days look grey and unhealthy, with perpetual snotty noses.

    If my kids ever have children. It will be no vaxxx.

    I compare child hood vaccines to getting a new car, and having the mechanic add little sand to the oil, and transmission on ever oil change. The car will always have problems, even if you stop the mechanic after year 3.

    • MaryQueen February 13, 2023 at 10:32 am #

      Children’s Health Defense did the biggest study on vaxxed vs. unvaxxed children and found exactly what you have: The unvaxxed kids were way healthier.

      But the study is ignored by our deathcare industry, of course.

            Ive heard that fantasy.

            My mom and her sister were hit by polio [1950?] while at the beach.

            I dont believe the ‘pesticides cause polio’ riff.

          • MaryQueen February 13, 2023 at 4:29 pm #

            I don’t think it was pesticides alone, and it really doesn’t matter to me what you believe.

            I’ve got enough evidence that pestilence and illness are caused in order to sell vaccines.

            AIDS was the same.

          • Anthea February 13, 2023 at 8:14 pm #

            I think that polio was mostly eradicated, not by the vaccine, but by improved sanitation, such as public water and sewer systems, which were mostly put in place in the 1950s and into the 1960s.

            In small-town rural America in the 1950s, every house had its own well and its own pump–which was often just a hand-pump in the back yard. Sometimes it was a hand-pump in the kitchen, and sometimes it was an electric pump that circulated water in a relatively modern household plumbing system.

            In the early 1950s, most people still had outhouses, but people were beginning to install indoor toilets. The problem was, they were not installing septic systems. The indoor toilet flushed into a ditch, which, as often as not ran into the nearest roadside ditch, or sometimes to the nearest creek. So you literally had open sewers along every roadside all over town.

            When one of my old friends was a kid, he noticed that the water in a nearby ditch was running red, so he asked his mother about it. She replied, “Oh, they must have another body down at the funeral home.”

            You can probably see how this type of infrastructure could lead to water-borne diseases, due to sewage in the surface water and possibly also in the ground water, and thus the well water.

        • Mick February 13, 2023 at 11:47 am #

          It’s a myth that vaccination ended polio.

          It was going away before the mass vaccination of youth started.

          • Blackbird February 13, 2023 at 12:14 pm #

            Mortality of most infectious diseases in the US had declined over 90% by the time vaccines for those diseases had been introduced. Improved sanitation, nutrition, and hygiene have never received the credit they deserve.

          • Jarek February 13, 2023 at 1:03 pm #

            Industrialism was terrible for people. On the other hand, the people in Africa were always sickly. The Homeland of Humanity is a very hard place to live in fact. Terrible diseases and parasites. The northern lands are so much better, once we learned how to live in them.

        • TXRancher February 13, 2023 at 11:59 am #

          A recent book “Turtle All The Way Down” has a very detailed history of Polio and the environmental factors that coincidentally occurred during that time. As stated elsewhere, Polio was on the decline before the vaccine was released and the original vaccine had to be pulled (Cutter Incident) because the vaccine was killing people. Imagine that.

          • Blackbird February 13, 2023 at 12:28 pm #

            Salk’s original vaccine was made from dead virus. In the sixties, the polio vaccine began to be manufactured using live virus (the Sabin vaccine). I read that all cases of polio in the US since then have been caused by the live-virus polio vaccine.

            The Cutter Incident (1955): vaccine contaminated with live virus taken off the market, only two weeks after introduction, due to 10 deaths, HEW and NIH heads resign…

            It was a different world back then.

            Also, Gates’ polio vaxx campaigns in Africa have resulted in vaxx-induced paralysis being more common than wild polio in vast swaths of the continent.

            I got the polio vaxx in the 50s – no idea if it was the dodgy, cancer-causing one.

          • benr February 15, 2023 at 9:07 am #

            The polio vaccine was also grown on rhesus monkey kidneys.
            It just so happens these kidneys were also infected by sv40 among many other cancer causing viruses.

            The polyomavirus simian virus 40 (SV40) is a known oncogenic DNA virus which induces primary brain and bone cancers, malignant mesothelioma, and lymphomas in laboratory animals. Persuasive evidence now indicates that SV40 is causing infections in humans today and represents an emerging pathogen.

      I know of one family with children having received no vaccines at all, all four children healthy.

      Again, doesn’t prove anything, but at some point anecdotes become data.

      What they did with the vaxx was deliberately try to keep us from seeing the data.

      • Jarek February 13, 2023 at 1:08 pm #

        Yes, when they are collected systematically and analyzed objectively using mathematics. In other words, anecdotes become data to the extent the cease to be anecdotes, given the connotation of randomness of the latter.

      I was completely ostracized by a social circle I valued for the criminal offense of advising a man I considered a good friend NOT to have his newborn son vaccinated. When that bright, cheerful boy turned sullen and withdrawn, I was told he was “a little slow.” Then his mother told me he was diagnosed as autistic.

      Dad is a brilliant coder I worked with for 2 years and had bible study with for much of that time. One of the other coders in our circle has 2 sons who started out bright and grew dim after vaccination. To suggest shots had anything to do with it is to commit social suicide.

      I said brilliant coders, not brilliant fathers.

      • mrs_saj February 13, 2023 at 11:38 am #

        C.O.Jones,

        I am so sorry to hear your story. This seems to be very common. And I am not referring to the vaxxine reactions (although that is common too). I am talking about the social suicide. I have seen this again and again in my own social circle. Why are you, who warned your friends out of love, the persona non grata? Why am I? Why do people persistently blame those who were correct in offering a warning rather than those who perpetrated the evil in the first place? Why are these parents (in this case) incapable of acknowledging their own culpability in being duped?

        It boggles my mind.

        In my new more socially isolated circumstances, I try to look at the bright side. I spend less time in the company of lunatics. But it’s still lonely.

        • Rowdypiglet February 13, 2023 at 12:39 pm #

          I understand the reaction if they’ve already gone ahead and gotten the shots for themselves and their children. They know they can’t undo what has been done, and they’re deeply afraid. That, at least, makes some sense.

          But many people who hadn’t yet been vaxxed and still had the option of declining were adamant in their refusal to read, listen to, or otherwise see any criticism or alternative voices. It didn’t matter that the criticism came from people who were well qualified to offer it – they proclaimed these people, prominent doctors and scientists, “fringe” conspiracy theorists without even looking at the evidence. This is an attitude I’ve had real difficulty in understanding. It does seem to be related to Trump Derangement Syndrome, in that it has the same symptoms and arose around the same time.

          • C.O.Jones February 13, 2023 at 1:07 pm #

            Rowdypiglet,

            One relative of mine told me that the doctors who were publicizing the deadly effects of the shots were just trying to sell books. He is a vaxxed up college graduate, employed by the state.

            The punchline is that his dad – my brother – died from blood clots in his lungs twenty odd days after his second shot. My brother ridiculed me when I advised him not to get the shot.

            I think you’re right, Trump Derangement Syndrome played a part in the formation of opinions, both my brother’s and his son’s. TDS played a large role in my divorce because I refused to wear a mask or take a shot for a disease that has a 99.74% survival rate. It would be accurate to say I’ve paid the price for being able to think.

            Some of the people I know who were (and I suppose still are) eager to take the jabs did so out of pure loyalty to their “team”–in other words, the liberal team. Skepticism would have placed them firmly on the enemy’s “team.” No amount of data or factual information will sway them, because that’s not how they make their decisions. They decided to take the jabs because their political affiliation demanded it.

        • C.O.Jones February 13, 2023 at 12:55 pm #

          mrs_saj,

          It’s a dilemma. What do you do when you have authenticated information that could alter the life of a child and the parents of that child?

          I showed my buddy a study that said shooting the multiple standard vaccines into an infant as they do is the equivalent of shooting 12 ounces of liquid into an adult man. I implored him not to do that to his son. He ignored me. He will be caring for that child for the life of that child.

          My consolation is that I am not the jerk who stood by while my friend effectively consented to the poisoning of his son. I spoke up and paid the price but the price would have been even steeper had I held my tongue in the attempt to be popular.

          The truth ain’t popular.

            As a retired nurse, I get questions from all directions.

            I answer as an advisor only when I know for certain what I am saying is gospel. Otherwise I say , I do not know.

            Nothing with Covid is gospel, I give little advice other than revealing that many MDs and others are revealing the many side effects of the vaxx. I recommend they do their own research before making the risk decision. Most never get the boosters.

            I always tell folks to consult their MD as I am limited in information being retired 7 years.

            Covid especially but other immune system modifiers are so unknown with their effects that any information is suspect. It is scary to make any recommendations on vaxxes or vaccines.

            That is why this damnable government needs to be sued for what it has done.

          • Rowdypiglet February 13, 2023 at 2:58 pm #

            C.O. Jones, I’ve found it’s no use trying to bring logic to the conversation, if you’re even able to have one. My impulse would have been to ask what was the motivation of the great majority of doctors who raised questions but didn’t write books, and were hounded, investigated, and sometimes lost their licenses – but I now know from experience that it would have gone nowhere. When they run out of responses, which happens pretty quickly, they get angry and extremely hostile. You did what you could, so you can at least sleep at night

          • mrs_saj February 13, 2023 at 3:09 pm #

            C.O.Jones,

            The dilemma for me is where do I draw the line of speaking up or staying silent. And it’s not the same line for everyone situation. If an adult is showing hesitation, then I stick up for their hesitation. Though I warn them there are social costs to be paid to those lobbying them to get the shots. If it’s regarding minor children, I speak up. An experimental shot on a child when they have a 99% survivability rate? And if it’s a pregnant woman, I don’t hold anything back.

            But now, a fully indoctrinated adult contemplating shot number 3, 4, or 5 for themself is not entitled to my opinion. Back in mid to late 2021, I did still lobby adults not to get the first shot. There aren’t many of those folks left today. People are either firmly at zero or they are up to 3, 4, or 5.

            Others on this blog may have entirely different approaches which is absolutely their right. My approach satisfies my own conscience.

          • GreenAlba February 13, 2023 at 9:05 pm #

            “People are either firmly at zero or they are up to 3, 4, or 5.”

            I’m not sure that’s true. I’ve had two, before finding out what was going on (we older bods were unlucky to be at the start of the programme, before more info. came out about adverse effects). Lots of people had two and took no boosters. Each booster gets fewer takers. Many people who just had one took no more because they were sick after the first one (some obviously died after the first one).

            Even many doctors in the UK quit after the first two. Only 60% of them apparently got the first booster. But presumably a lot of those still gave it to their patients or at least participated in the effort to get their patients to go to vaxx centres. It is unimaginable to me that you would refuse to take any more of something yourself, because you’d come to doubt its safety, but stand by and watch your patients take more of it.

            Green Alba,

            Actually you are providing examples that fit my approach quite neatly. So thanks.

            If you (or the doctors you mention) expressed hesitancy, I would encourage your hesitancy. If you (or the doctors you mention) were ready for your next shot (number 3) without hesitancy, I wouldn’t say a word. Anyone going in for their third (or more) is not entitled to my opinion, time, or energy.

          • GreenAlba February 14, 2023 at 9:22 am #

            None of us is ‘entitled’ to anything very much. I’d still try with someone who’d taken a booster already. If they are in the ‘angry’ brigade, i.e. those who get aggressive about it, then there is no point in continuing. Otherwise, you never know when a drop of truth might seep into someone’s brain. And they may talk to someone else, and so on. It’s obviously happening, because more people are waking up and fewer people are boosting. It’s just not happening fast enough to stop the agenda.

        • ViceGrip February 13, 2023 at 1:36 pm #

          I can’t imagine any parent being capable of either intellectually, emotionally or spiritually ‘owning’ having been responsible for the death of their child, espsecially due to one single decision that they had made.

          There are a host of inherent psychological defense mechanism’s that kick in for the survival of the organism.

          That is beyond shocking to witness, yet understandable — the mechanism.

          However, should this parent continue to do the same with yet another one of their children after this has occurred, is none other than the work of the Devil, imho.

          • C.O.Jones February 13, 2023 at 3:53 pm #

            You make a good point, ViceGrip. I don’t have children so how could I possibly know anything?

            Every time my friend sees me, he is reminded of the decision he made so it’s better not to see me and just act like autism fell out of the sky and landed on his once bright son.

            What’s worse? To hold your tongue or to tell the truth? If I had held my tongue, I couldn’t bear to see my friend or his boy but since I told the truth, I don’t have that problem.

            As mrs_saj said, I am persona non grata. It’s ok, though – my dog loves me!

            Yes, I agree – the adversary has his fingerprints all over this business.

      Similar situation in my family. Two nieces both fully vaxed have produced three children since 2020. One child is autistic, another severe ADHD and the last is a dwarf. Both families have none of this in their histories. Of course neither niece has considered the ‘shot’ as a possible cause. Just one of those things.

    As Jim has outlined for us today, for those who wish to see it’s not difficult to discern the terrible, bizarre deeds being perpetrated around the world, or for someone like Sy Hersh to track down who the order givers and button pushers are. But the why of it is maddeningly elusive.

    Evil isn’t terribly difficult to understand, but raging insanity confounds analysis. If you or I had ten billion dollars, would we indefatigably undermine stable governments, immiserate formerly prosperous populations, court planetary thermonuclear annihilation in order to possess another billion that we could not possibly spend – or a hundredth billion?

    I am reminded of the old game of King of the Hill, and groups of boys clambering upward and being thrown back until only the biggest, toughest lout remained atop the dirt mound.

    When the entire rest of the world’s population has starved from a contrived food shortage and perished from a manufactured pandemic, will there just be George and Warren and Bill and Elon under a bubble on Epstein’s Island, guarded by a loyal corps of Boston Dynamics warrior robots?

    Could each of them bear sharing the world with the other three, or will they ultimately take battleaxes to each other until only one is left standing: King of the World.

        • Islander February 13, 2023 at 11:38 am #

          I believe Elon Musk is half Jewish.
          I could be wrong.

          However, Jews have always been at the forefront of finance. By “forefront” I mean inventing different financial/ speculative/credit instruments and practices, inventing and shaping new types of markets (such as futures), providing credit to colonizers for their extractive projects, building up industries in the metropole that required the raw resources of the colonies, etc.

          Jews themselves are very proud of this talent—until you point out the aspects of this activity that has not been welcomed in host countries. Then it is suddenly “anti-semitism” ( stupid term that I use only to ridicule it).

          I have a pile of Jewish DNA and my grandfather was in finance in Germany. But that doesn’t make me willfully stupid or blind or unable to read history.

      The laws of the land are being violated, and the constitution is continually being poked. Has anyone considered that those in charge of the movement are basically complying with “The Great Reset” and “Build Back Better” set of rules? A NWO (2030 Agenda) set of rules? Why not? They have had a couple generations to plan and fine tune implementation of their movement.

      A couple weeks ago, Not_GeorgeT argued that Fauci was evil. Subsequently I have given this much thought, originally thinking it was a “chicken or egg” argument. That which I have landed on is that from the perspective of a victim, Not_GeorgeT is absolutely correct. But, looking at this from Fauci’s perspective, like Schindler, I believe that he fancies himself as benevolent (I believe that the same goes for “George and Warren and Bill”). One needs to view a person that presents as evil, as either being insane, or one needs to get inside their head by looking for a logical explanation for their actions from their perspective. Logical can include that they have deluded themselves into believing that their actions are/will be benevolent (there is a basic need to be viewed by our cohorts as good). Regarding Fauci and covid, I believe that there are enough victims, people who lost their jobs, their house, their car, their spouse, … that he can’t possibly justify being benevolent, so ultimately that takes us to some NWO agenda.

      The problem with allowing an “evil” person to control the levers of power, is that their mind is such that they are unable to contemplate all the consequences of their actions and deal with an unexpected issue.

      I suspect that when “Biden” took office, that the WEF elite were all on-board with “The Great Reset” and “Build Back Better” (all Nations must participate), but then Putin realized that the deal was not in Russia’s best interest, and decided that he better press the WEF elite and have them make a commitment one way or the other, and now “Biden” is inundated with the unexpected consequences. I believe that Kerry made backroom deals with XI, which would basically destroy the United States, and XI figured that it was a no lose proposition, so he accepted the deals that Kerry offered (that which sticks in my mind is Kerry telling 2 cohorts that he (Kerry) had to concede 2 of the 3, but at least he got the one relating to the “Green New Deal”).

      A major unexpected consequence is that “Biden” has committed treason, and XI is holding all the aces in this regard.

      At what point does a prominent figure take a stand and declare that the way “The Great Reset” and “Build Back Better” are being implemented, basically amounts to a coup?

      In order to deal with a coup, one needs to comprehend their perspective, otherwise one is never able to make sense of the nonsense and counter their agenda.

      **

      New York, USA, 13 June 2019 – The World Economic Forum and the United Nations signed today a Strategic Partnership Framework outlining areas of cooperation to deepen institutional engagement and jointly accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

      • TPTB-USA February 14, 2023 at 10:12 am #

        I can engage in endless meaningless arguments with my family and friends about whether or not Fauci is evil.

        Looking at it from their perspective, Fauci is a saint because they no longer have to spend an hour and a half getting ready for work, they no longer have to spend two hours a day battling rush hour traffic, they no longer have to put up with the jerks at work, … you get the picture. And as for the covid obsessed, Fauci is their savior because they did not die, because he put on his armor and went to battle for them by mandating that everyone wear a diaper, that everyone stay six feet the hell away from them, and he was instrumental in mandating that the world get vaccinated to insure that they would never get the covid.

        Now, ask anyone of them about the meaning of Fauci’s relationship with the WEF, or the reason for the conflict in Ukraine, and you might get a “Putin bad” reply, but they are all basically clueless. Just think, this is basically half the voting population of the US!

        What is the solution? An honest objective assessment of current events and the news, and tar and feather the liars.

        • benr February 15, 2023 at 9:41 am #

      • TPTB-USA February 16, 2023 at 3:12 pm #

        I am under the impression that Nancy Pelosi did not bring an issue up for a vote until she knew (had commitments) the votes were there.

        I believe it was the same with the launch of “The Great Reset” and “Build Back Better” agendas (all Nations must participate).

        The first test was Afghanistan, but no loss, because they can always muscle them into compliance.
        [[As reports of violent repression against women and U.S. allies by the Taliban alarm the globe, Thomas-Greenfield told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer the U.S. would be “watching” closely.

        “We are hearing from people in Afghanistan that they are getting threats from the Taliban, and we have expressed in no uncertain terms here at the United Nations through a very strongly worded press statement from the Security Council that we expect the Taliban to respect human rights, including the rights of women and girls,” Thomas-Greenfield said. “We have also indicated that they have to be respectful of humanitarian law and that we do not expect to see that Afghanistan will become a safe haven for terrorists. But, again, it is not their words that we will hold them to. It is their actions that we will be watching.”]]

        This was not lost on Putin, and my read is that the “agenda” made a backroom deal to buy the Taliban vote (and that explains all the nonsense pertaining to the withdrawal).

        Putin did not like the way things were shaping-up in Ukraine. What is lost on the general population, is that the movers and shakers of the world all have the opportunity to know each other, and they all have the opportunity to know about the WEF and it’s agenda.

    QUOTE:***You’d have more reason to suspect that those outfits were fronting for something else, and that something might be the CCP. The Marxist culture war against American manners and values is unmistakably a re-play of China’s cultural revolution, with all its insults against reason, tradition, custom, common sense, and due process of law.***

    I find it a bit difficult to believe that the CCP really was so ‘good’ at what they do that they could have had a hand in the sociocultural malaise overtaking the West. If anything I always thought it would and should have been the other way around. After all, Marx wasn’t Chinese. (I don’t remember any Chinese having that sort of hairstyle.) And face it, America has way more military bases around the world than China.

    But if it turns out the CCP really did have a hand in the sociocultural malaise overtaking the West, I’d imagine it’s karma at work. Hey, the West did have a very big hand in the collapse of China’s premodern sociocultural order in the 19th and early 20th centuries, with the godforsaken abomination called the CCP taking its place. So perhaps the Chinese can say with some justification: you ruin our sociocultural order, we ruin yours. Tit for tat.

      • JohnAZ February 13, 2023 at 2:43 pm #

        I watched a very good You tube on what the selling of US Treasury bonds is doing to the gold market.

        In a few words, international bullion banks are where countries hold their gold reserves. When countries buy and sell gold into the banks, some of the purchases are made with, you guessed it, Treasuries. The percentage is value in the bullion banks of Treasuries is growing.

        The You Tube post’s message was that no one knows exactly how much gold really exists any where.

        I do know that Russia and China are now buying gold and keeping it. Could it be that BRICS will eventually own the majority, or all, the gold and the US will have no backing for the dollar? They are also increasing their selling of US Treasuries they hold.

        Do you think we are being set up? Is Biden’s Mob scared of these people?

    • mrs_saj February 13, 2023 at 12:11 pm #

      neurodoc,

      Ok, I see Janet Yellen on CNN on January 13 talking about potential debt default and extraordinary measures only getting us through June.

      I looked at this in January news coverage as the typical kabuki theater surrounding the debt ceiling.

      I’m not convinced ‘this sucker is going down’ this year, but I do absolutely think the US dollar has a limited shelf life left.

      Your comments would be appreciated.

      • JohnAZ February 13, 2023 at 2:51 pm #

        This not Neurodoc but here goes.

        China owns a percentage of our U.S. Treasuries. If they could get away with it, they could shut us down right now.

        However, they do own our Treasuries and part of their wealth is our debt. If we default, so do they. Along with the other members of BRICS+.

        So they will continue to convert Treasuries for gold and then when the time is right, pull the rug out from under the dollar, which is backed by the Treasuries.

        IOW, China will for all intents and purposes own the US and in short order. The next president here will be dealing with this.

        • mrs_saj February 13, 2023 at 3:30 pm #

          Hi JohnAZ,

          Your comments are always appreciated too!

          I have read similar things as you over the last 10 years about China and Russia slowing and then stopping their new US treasuries purchases. I’ve also read about them drastically reducing the balance of their treasuries owned. I think Russia is down to nothing. And this has helped them during the Special Operation in Ukraine.

          Other countries have followed the lead of China and Russia and they do it methodically over time. No country is running out and dumping their entire holding of treasuries in a month.

          Similarly, a number of countries have gone on buying sprees of physical gold. This is also done over time so as to not create any major disturbances in the gold market.

          Also, one country, I can’t remember which, that had allowed the US to hold its gold reserves for decades, warned us they wanted to repatriate the bullion to their own vault and presented the schedule that they would expect their gold to be returned. There is a lot of fuzziness around how much gold is actually at Fort Knox. This country did receive its bullion back, over time. Who knows if the US had to go out and buy it on the spot market.

          • Paula D February 13, 2023 at 4:24 pm #

            I heard that Germany asked for its bullion back, but I heard that they were simply refused.

          There may be a bit of quid-pro-quo going on here, also. Perhaps the US government continues to allow China (and individual Chinese) to own property and businesses in the US in exchange for assurances from China that they will not dump treasuries–or at least that they will dump them in (an agreed-upon) measured way. It also may be that the threat of dumping treasuries may buy China a certain level of control over the US government. I.e., “We won’t pull the rug, as long as you do certain things that we want.”

I’ve listened to his interviews over at goldenjackass.com for years and what he talked about is coming true.

    It would appear too many fixate on the macro; WEF, UN etc. Any plan of controlling a planet, continent, country, geographic area within a country, needs boots on the ground down to the neighborhood level. Identify the control group at YOUR level and eliminate it.
    To worry about anything at any level above the neighborhood is extremely moronic. Be totally aware of ALL machinations developing anywhere which can, eventually, effect a negative outcome on your AOR but the focus is LOCAL for solutions to events the affect your quality of life. Living in an area, as I do, where locals are pre-disposed to justifiable action of THIS type is quite comforting. Nuff Said.

        They don’t even fill those things with Americans needing affordable housing anymore. They import Africans and so forth to live in them.

        • Rowdypiglet February 13, 2023 at 12:55 pm #

          Beryl, I’ve mentioned this before, but they tried this trick in Portland, Maine – a city that was once decidedly blue collar but has become full of woke activists. Mainers who lived in the state their entire lives were on a long list, waiting years for Section 8 housing. The woke city council decided to invite a large group of “refugees” from Somalia, and provide them with the housing that had been promised to Maine taxpayers, and for which they had paid.

          The Governor at the time, Paul LePage, refused to release the money for that purpose, for which the woke press crucified him. He got the full Trump treatment for being decidedly on the side of Mainers, and the Somalis came anyway. The city of Portland now has the requisite crime, the area around the bus station is unsafe, and it’s no longer the Portland we once loved – nor is it affordable or in any way welcoming for any of the Maine natives who once lived there.

          • Jarek February 13, 2023 at 1:30 pm #

            No wonder you woke up! Remember when that artist declared Portland to be “hideously White”? He was forced to apologize, but he wasn’t shamed for it by his peers. They all felt the same. Slowly and surely they made their plans against the People of Portland (like the Martians against Earth) and when the time was right, they struck.

          • Islander February 13, 2023 at 2:21 pm #

            I think some of the biggest concentrations of Somalis in the US of A are in Lewiston, Maine. Poor Maine!

            I guess the coast is still OK. Because pricey.

          • Rowdypiglet February 13, 2023 at 2:51 pm #

            @Jarek, It was a learning experience. I wouldn’t have believed people were that duplicitous, and that they had such hatred and contempt for the ordinary working people who gave them their comfortable lives. The hatred for Paul LePage, a former street kid who grew up with every disadvantage and made a life from scratch, was endemic along the wealthy coast. He made the mistake of stating that when you saw a black man driving a Cadillac Escalade in Maine, he was almost certainly not on a ski vacation but was here to sell drugs – a statement which everyone knew was true but which his enemies pretended to be outraged by. Sad times.

          • Jarek February 13, 2023 at 6:30 pm #

            Oh is that the guy built like a brick house? Yeah, what great energy. Strong Trump guy. Exactly the type they hate the most.

            Portland is no different than any city in the US and should be avoided. Maine’s population is 90% rural with the majority tending to be conservative. My kind of place.

    “Before long, you’ll see blood on the snow.”

    We won’t see blood on the snow. Sorry. I love reading Mr. Kunstler’s posts. They are always positive and full of hope that the debauchery that has become America’s governing system will finally be brought to justice.

    But it never happens. I’m growing impatient. C’mon already.

    The debt alone is going to crush us. However, I do not have faith in Americans to figure this out on their own. When the debt finally crushes our currency and wipes out our savings people will still tune into the Super Bowl, The Voice, The Bachelor and the NBA.

    JHK is a breath of hope in an otherwise overwhelming and hopeless battle against the filth of the Federal leviathan. Hence the reason I will keep reading.

    • SomeoneInAsia February 13, 2023 at 12:00 pm #

      It’s not clear to me if JHK is really that hopeful about our collective future. He did say in his The Long Emergency that, while humankind as a whole will survive, it will only be after taking a beating in many respects — decent behavior, the preservation of knowledge, the number of us around etc.

      And frankly, given the current escalation in relations between Russia and NATO, even the mere prospect of mankind’s survival seems a bit doubtful now.

      This is one of favorite images. The exhausted Buck is surrounded by wolves. He holds them off with his antlers, but for how much longer? The un is setting. Already there is a lurid red glow on the snow. But soon it will be stained with a brighter red.

      Need I say more? The Buck is the Old America, the White America. The antlers are the Constitution. The setting sun is the time factor. The night is the end. And the red is blood, both metaphorical and real.

      How many here have done anything to stop this? Few. How many here have contributed to it? All.

    • Night Owl February 13, 2023 at 5:52 pm #

      Debt is meaningless. The masters of the universe can do whatever they want to get the result they desire. They can start over from square one at any time; all that is required is an announcement and general consent.

      The entire system runs on all of us agreeing that things work as we are told they work.

      Those who run the system have simply decided that when they bring in the new system, it won’t be something that any of us will like. And the trap will spring once they have removed any means for use to continue with the old system.

      We are not far away from this point, unfortunately.

      • GreenAlba February 13, 2023 at 9:16 pm #

        It seems those people who have complained to their local councillors about the 15-minute city plans have been pretty much told they can eff off because it’s happening anyway.

        The globalists are doing their work through local councils – easy to bribe, I expect.

    JHK “The abiding mystery is… why?”

    Overshoot, depletion and degradation. The big 3 constraints you yourself addressed almost 20 years ago.

    But the big miss was from those who had been subjected to intense institutional brain washing since youth. It is they who incorrectly assumed lack of obvious overt action was the result of ineptitude, and that only they, the intelligent and informed, understood the challenges.

    I mean, the label CFN itself encapsulates this arrogance of POV. It took others perhaps a bit more savvy, maybe exposed to how the world actually worked from insights passed along from others in the maw, along with direct personal observation and experience, to clearly see what was occurring.

    Now in hindsight it couldn’t be any more obvious. No one will be swayed by excuses like “mistakes were made”. These actions have been deliberate and intentionally carried out to destroy individuals, families, law and cohesive society.

    Why? To enable a transition to a controlled, resource starved living state that can support an elite superstructure that will carry on the human project.

      Yes, I’ve been talking to them here for years. They can’t accept that America was founded on violence. And to renounce that violence is like spraying Round Up on their roots. But they continued to do it anyway. No they have no roots, no past, and thus no future.

      Of course they believed the alien controlled Media! They had no history anymore, having renounced it after the aliens told them to do so.

      Yes, now they know they’ve been lied to. But do they have the Will and the Vitality to dredge their minds and uproot the lies that have been planted there? No, too painful. Too much work. Thus whatever they do will be wrong.

            We’re at the limit now and must cut back the population – or Nature will do it for us.

      Also never forget how the Army Corps of Engineers dumped thousands of tons of debris on the site where Kennewick Man was found. His existence disturbed the narrative the Elite are invested in. That Caucasians were here early on, perhaps before the Mongolians, is not useful to them at all. So bury it.

      Compare that with the Chinese who found the remains of advanced Whites in Eastern China. The evidence shows that they helped create early China before being destroyed or driven out by the “grateful” proto-Chinese. But did the Chinese destroy the site? No. They don’t like the findings, but they have too much integrity to do something like that.

      They found actual Mummies, dressed in Celtic type tweeds, red and blonde haired, with the men approaching seven feet tall. The Nazi archeologists were looking for something like this. But the Chinese actually found it.

      It accords with their earliest records of their ancestors fighting dog eyes (blue eyes) in that area.

          Perhaps you’re thinking of the little dark people they conquered (the Jasmines). Or the middle statured people who were the first to enter the British Isles after the Ice Age. Some of them red haired, perhaps from the Neanderthals. Or other groups.

          The original, continental Celts as described by classical writers? Tall. But yes, not that tall.

          Leave it to you to focus on one little element in my post. Do you know anything about the mummies found in Eastern China? Do you want to know anything?

          • GreenAlba February 14, 2023 at 7:29 am #

            If one element in your post is nonsense (I”m not saying it is, just casting doubt because we have Celts her and in Ireland and they are known to be shorter than e.g. Anglo-Saxons or Nordics), then your source is quite possibly unreliable.

            “Do you want to know anything?”

            I would say I don’t want to believe everything you say at face value because you have a clear agenda and you have to be particularly careful with ‘information’ put out by people with clear agendas.

            According to Diodorus Siculus:

            The Gauls are tall of body with rippling muscles and white of skin and their hair is blond, and not only naturally so for they also make it their practice by artificial means to increase the distinguishing colour which nature has given it. For they are always washing their hair in limewater and they pull it back from the forehead to the nape of the neck, with the result that their appearance is like that of Satyrs and Pans since the treatment of their hair makes it so heavy and coarse that it differs in no respect from the mane of horses. Some of them shave the beard but others let it grow a little; and the nobles shave their cheeks but they let the moustache grow until it covers the mouth.

    IMHO there is no conspiracy at all, whether deep or creep. It’s just a bunch of megalomaniacs chasing virtue points with no plan. They may wax ineloquently about their plan to evolve humanity to their ideal [with ‘them’ in charge] but it all really boils down to what I said when I met Biden a couple of decades ago: “He’s an asshole that thinks he knows everything.”

    Whether it’s the Public Health Officials (PHOs pronounced faux] creating narratives, not to protect the huddles masses, but, to project their power upon same or the MIC creating chaos to increase consumption of weapons or Big Pharma introducing interative, “cures/vaccines/etc.” for whatever they have caused with the previous solution… It’s all just a bunch of assholes that think they know everything.

    • lateStarter February 13, 2023 at 12:01 pm #

      • JC Penny February 13, 2023 at 3:36 pm #

        Yup. But that ‘leadership’ is representative:

        Had a discussion with a very distant relative over the holidays. She was one of the Insurrectionists a couple years back – she was there – so using the current DOJ’s legal limbo: Associating = Guilt.

        Whenever I countered her claim of meticulous coordination of the global malfeasance [not quite the way she phrased it], she would just jump to another posit from a Rumble Professor.

        Hubris and ignorance for sure… Not quite sure if the greed is representative or endemic.

          Sandi A. got into this quite accidentally. She was an animations artist, I think, and ended up creating sets for futuristic events that were organised by people like Bill Gates, whom she met. It led her to quit what she was doing and start looking into this stuff.

          As a Brit I find it’s useful to have what’s going on explained by someone so ordinary and down to earth, because you can pass this on to someone knowing it’s not going to be a turnoff for people who would not be receptive to Alex Jones types – or even Stew Peters, who I feel means well but is a bit hysterical in his presentation, which puts people off who are not used to even thinking about what goes on behind the scenes.outside of MSM narratives.

    There was a time I might have worried about aliens coming after us, but that time is long past. These days my initial thought is “what are the satanists trying to distract me from.” Lots of possibilities. One thing they’re doing is normalizing the shooting off of missiles over my neighborhood. This is new and different. I suspect we’ll see a lot more of them in the future. Some might have red stars instead of eagles on the side. Could be. Probably.

      Once they realize that the Good People are behind the Wars, they’ll shut up again. The PNAC organization, and the Israeli paper, Securing the Realm, were opening people’s eyes and the Democrats shut it down accordingly. Criticizing the War Industry is one thing, but the good people? No one dares to do that.

    We are occupied by a hostile force, that is for sure.

    Our government is controlled by an elite band of criminal psychopaths, the same ones who deindustrialized the US, starting in the 80s, by moving productive capacity over to a country with a billion peasants willing to work for peanuts.

    The peasants used that productive capacity to improve their lives and now are accused of plotting against us for the last 40 years?

    Sorry, not buying it. It was pure greed that made our owners move production to China and it is pure greed that keeps the borders open to cheap labor here and pure greed that drives the destruction and murder of the remnants of what we used to call the middle class in America.

    • Jarek February 13, 2023 at 2:06 pm #

      Quite so. The Government didn’t make the Corporations betray the American people. They were all too willing to do on their own. Poor John Az can’t overcome this dichotomy. He still thinks the Capitalist arm of the Beast is good! And you still think the Communism arm is good. You two should be married.

    The reason IMO it is so hard to pinpoint who is behind all this is because there are various groups involved for a wide variety of reasons.

    A lot of environmentalist types really believe that they are in it for the environment.

    Speaking of environmental issues, there is a lot of poisoning and polluting going on in Ohio, in an area with a lot of farmland, and I have heard reports of dead livestock. but not from the MSM.

    Someone told me a farmer lost a lot of chickens.

    I did a Zoom call with my family over the weekend. My son said that he is taking a vacation to Germany.

    I said “Better learn how to say “I’m sorry my country blew up your pipelines” in German then”.

    They all just stared at me. I didn’t want to start a fight by asking why.
    Is it possible that they don’t know that the US blew up Germany’s pipelines?

            Same with 9-11 I believe they simply let it happen for the crisis event and all the things that could be done in the name of security.
            The official narrative is full of holes but so is the Conspiracy the government done it.

      I don’t get the point.

      The Green-SPD government coalition would approve of the destruction, as they claim we are at war with Russia.

      And according to the Hersh piece, Scholz (SPD) went along with it. I have no doubt whatsoever that this was indeed the case.

      The governing coalition is working to destroy the country.

    It is absolutely amazing that an environmental disaster of epic proportions can be so completely kept out of the news.

    I’m not talking about the blowing up of the pipelines, I’m talking about the burning of thousands of gallons of toxic vinyl chloride and other deadly chemicals in Ohio.

    Apparently, because it is only affecting white people it is considered their just deserts and so not important enough to report on.

    Luckily we have social media. Here’s a Twitter and a TikTok report on the disaster. You won’t get it on CNN. In Jimmy’s video you can see a reporter being arrested for trying to do a report.

      That derailment is actually old news. It occured Feb 3 and the story was carried by the MSM. No one was injured and the residents are back home. I think it was handled well and the outcome could have been MUCH worse. The controled release and burning of the vinyl chloride was probably the best option and went as planned. Much pollution yes but what are you going to do? People would be horrified if they knew all the stuff that was being moved through their neighborhoods on a regular basis. Remember Bhopal? now that was a disaster.

        I actually had to attend disaster classes and drills. We have a railroad going through the center of town. But we were focused on learning to read and apply the MDSD sheets, not how to deal with a spill.

        It seems to me that every state should have a plan to deal with these situations. At least have tanker trucks with pumps to empty out the rail tankers. They don’t have to let it all spill out and then burn it, if they had the equipment available.

            However, the point of the article is that neither the mother nor the trans offspring believes in gender ideology. The transitioned offspring fully accepts that s/he is an adult female, though surgically transitioned to male.

    I actually DO live in West Hollywood. At the peak of the pandemic I was walking down the middle of the street and a screechy witch yelled at me for not wearing a mask. I was 20 feet away from her in 90 degree weather in bright sunshine. I kid you not—-I told her to go home and curl up and die. My exact words. I’m so sweet. Anyway, West Hollywood is pretty tolerant these days. It’s the San Gabriel Valley area just west of downtown that is masking up still. You still see people driving alone in their cars masked up and walking down deserted suburban streets at 7am with their faces covered

    “Didn’t you get the feeling this weekend that we’re living in HG Wells’ classic tale of the earth invaded by sinister alien spacecrafts?”

    Truth be told, our World was invaded by ‘aliens’ a long time ago. By those who lust to rule over us and control every aspect of our lives and thoughts. By those who want to Own Everything and see the we-the-people Own Nothing. By those who promote toxins in our skies, toxins in our food and water, toxins going into our bloodstreams, and toxins pouring out of State Media, Hollywood, Weaponized Anti-Social Media, and toxins pumped into the minds of our children by State Miseducation Systems.

    All brought to you by the now-aliens who are not the least bit human. Or if they once were… that they deliberately and willingly morphed away from a long time ago to turn into the ‘things’ that they are now. ‘Things’ more worthy of being seen on places like the Svengoolie campy horror program or one of those 1950s movies that feature grotesque, over-sized bugs that try to take over the World. (Hey Grotesque Bugs? You still want to take over the World? Good. You can have it now… we can’t fix it. We made a bigger mess of things than you ever could.)

    “Why turn Western Civilization upside down and inside out and then try to pound the whole thing down a rat-hole?”

    Because ‘They’ hate life. They hate anything that lives. They hate anything that is good and right. And deep down inside… They hate Themselves.

    They ascended to places of power and influence because they are predators. They are bullies. They live to hurt and punish others. They feed off pain and misery… so long as it isn’t Their own. They hate this World and They hate all of us who inhabit it. They believe the whole Planet is Their property just like those who ‘settled’ the Old West and threw out all the lives of those who already lived their for generations. Blood lust for power drunks.

    “The Superbowl is over.”

    But the wreckage and mental torture and abuse it exists to foster is just taking root this morning in the clouded minds of Americans after the four-hour-long-mind-eff. Planting rows and rows of Wokeness and Race-baiting and propaganda and mind control and spiritual sewage that will have to hold us until next year. Well actually, not that long.

      With that I disagree. What’s the top is obtained there is no corruption that isn’t manipulated. What I mean is, they do in fact hate, they do in fact live to punish others, but they will never remember you and me, so to speak,

      they think there is some semblance of light there…if you believe in an afterlife…but there can’t be. Iniquity is good to them. It’s the whole trans agenda. The devil speaks the truth, but it’s all a lie in the end. (He offers the easy way out not the narrow path.).. Some ways to go, grasshopper…:)

    Listen, does it make sense that CCP is controlling the United States which is gearing up to attempt to destroy same in its undeterred century long mission of global domination? No. The CCP is playing the United States, yes. But the whole gang, CCP, USA and every other major power is “fronting” for something called 5G which happened to come out on the same day as something called ‘Corona-Virus’ which is caused by the same thing that causes ALL modern diseases namely, Radiation. Your cold is caused by radiation, your cancer is caused by radiation, polio, heart disease, diabetes = radiation poisoning.

    Mr. Kunstler and everybody else, your job is to tell me why I should consider ANYTHING other than 5G as the cause of the pandemic that was PREDICTED by those who said it would be a public health disaster.

    I didn’t reject the vaxx due to orneriness. At first I had my doubts about an alleged vaccine for a coronavirus being developed in a hurry. Who wouldn’t? Anyone over the age of twelve should have been skeptical.

    Then when I leaned what they had in mind, the mRNA jab, which is not a vaccine, it’s experimental gene therapy, of course I wouldn’t partake.

    BTW, it’s now been revealed (it was always known to those of us who looked) that of course the spike protein doesn’t stay in your arm. Why would anybody ever have believed otherwise.

    This was always, always known.

    Anyway, this was Alex Berenson’s take on those who resisted:

    Turns out Team Reality’s true stalwarts – we who saw the idiocy of lockdowns by April 2020 AND refused the mRNAs – share more temperament than ideology.

    The temperament: ornery, cynical, and unwilling to go along to get along.

      Back in January 2020, I was watching TV with my mom, NBC Nightly News with underwear model David Muir, when they showed video of people collapsing in mid-run, and being welded into their apartments in China. My mom said, “That’s ridiculous.” I said, “They’re showing us this because they’re bringing it here.”

      Then I read about the “isolation” of the virus by the Chinese – 9 samples (2 eventually rejected), unpurified – and the flagrant violations of protocol.

      Then I read about Drosten and his PCR test – and the flagrant violations of protocol.

      By the summer of 2020 I knew the only pandemic we were experiencing was a pandemic of lies.

      Which is why I advise anyone to relax; events are now completely out of our control.

      Look at the long history of failed empires and regimes. The Germans knew it was over by 1944 and wondered/hoped it wouldn’t be that bad. So too the Soviets in 1989, and all other prisoners of “their” own governments waiting for the other shoe to drop.

      When the state becomes too powerful for domestic resistance, help can only come from another equally powerful outside player. Ironic that now the west waits for the 3rd Rome to be their savior.

      All I can say is watch the dollar – it’s the fail safe holding the Titanic together. (It’s down 7.5% against the peso of all things if that doesn’t tell you something.) Wait for the BRIC market basket trading mechanism to increase trading volume.

      That suggests that we need weapons caches . . . Oh, and don’t forget the ammo!

        • Islander February 13, 2023 at 6:34 pm #

          John AZ,

          Well, it is hard to imagine.

          We have some idea what the Germans thought as they watched the Russians coming from the East and the Yanks and Brits from the West (I doubt any Germans really welcomed the Frogs).

          We know that Germans in the East (Prussia) fled west so as not to end up “hosting” Russian soldiers.

          the populations movements at the end of WW2 are a whole topic in themselves. Millions of Germans died.

          What would happen within a collapsed USA? I think a breakup into different fiefdoms and the slow emergence of local governments vaguely based on what we have now. Cadres to guard and run energy resources. With plenty of skirmishes to get rid of unwanted demographics. Not pretty, for sure.

          It is hard to picture any version of functional American society without plenty of internal combustion engines and fuel for them. How many electrical engineers will be around to spin the turbines? .

    As concerns ufos or balloons, psyops though they may be, I found it phsychologcally telling that the ‘in charge’ church lady, who could only say, ‘No, no. No.’ When I pointed out the original balloonish thing to her, grabbed me and said, ‘The ufo we saw was a spy balloon!’

    So only when the msm news confirmed for her it was not a ufo, but rather a spy balloon, coyld she own our sighting.

    Then I asked if she saw when it caught the sun, as if in a mirror so bright I had to look away, then as the suns rays left it appeared metallic and as Monty Python would say, ‘Thin at one end, thicker in the middle, and thin again at the other end.’

    ‘No’, she said, ‘I didn’t see anything else.’

      How do you beat a satellite spy system? By using “things” the satellites cannot see. Is there a “focal length” to the satellites that makes things at 40 to 60000 feet transparent?

      One of the resident experts on Fox this morning was wondering if we send balloons over China and Russia to spy? Does the shooting down of these four mean the agreement is over, are balloons obsolete? Is one of the tools of the world’s power elite gone? Will radar be scanning the skies again?

    RE: This week’s column. IMO, the Chinese are not “behind” WEF and co.

    There is and has been an alliance of sorts. China is the model of the technocratic digital plantation state. Klausi said so himself recently.

    They are using China like they used the US for decades. They need a hegemon as a base of operations and manpower.

    I said this before: The aim is to end the West and take Russia. If the West falls, Russia is the last remaining obstacle.

    China will be left, but it will not be run by the Chinese if WEF and co. get their way.

    Also the idea that WEF were powerless not long ago is laughable. They are a front for the banks, and they have steadily infiltrated academia and, ultimately, national governments surely but steadily.

        Yeah, BRICS+ vs. WEF. One of the two is behind the flooding of the US and Europe with non-European darker lower IQ peoples.

        If the WEF it is to bring the Elite into control while creating a permanent subclass for labor, AKA feudalism

        If BRICS+, it is to bring in the BRICS+ folks to just take over.

        BRIC+ is already on the high road, just in numbers and resource control.

        So if BRICS+ wins, then the fight will continue to be between China, India and Russia for global domination. It will be based on homogeniety of the peoples, the way Europe used to be, and on language. Mutts like the US have no identity culture to fight for.

        Sidebar
        There is a laugh. If someone went after the US, a large portion of the “American people” couldn’t even understand each other.

        If BRICS+ were to take over the US tomorrow, how many Americans would join a fight against them. Heck, right now, we have a government that believes in most of what BRICS+ stands for and “81 million” of us voted for it.

      I was 12 when two men in suits & shiny black shoes came into my ‘Homeroom’. They spoke with my teacher who then called me to the front and told me to go with the two men. We went to the principals office, I thought I was in deep shit.

      Fact of the matter was, they asked me if I wanted to join five other kids, each of whom had a unique capability, (mine was languages and ‘retention’ skills). When I saw that Shelly and Sonja were also selected, I couldn’t say yes fast enough!

      I made it through the rest of the school year but I couldn’t do the Math, I found that I understood the logic of Math a week after the quiz. lol

      The program was called “accelerated”. Our teachers had degrees specific to the course they taught us. Some were grad level but I never found out if MS or Phd. They didn’t say anything to my parents.

      The other kids in my class (outside of the program) excluded me from the old “gang”. They wanted me to help them on assignments but, I didn’t have the time. I was learning French and Spanish simultaneously my vocabulary was exploding. They called it Polyglot.

      At the beginning of the next year they had automatically put me with the same group. I told them I didn’t want to be in the program anymore. That’s when they called my mom.

        Wait. Don’t leave it there. What did they say to your mom?

        • badberries February 15, 2023 at 5:30 pm #

          As I recall from her, she went to school and met with the Principal. He tried to get her to commit to me staying w/ the program. She decided to let me choose. Many years later we realized there was a nice fat check from D.C. for every kid in the program.

          My mom’s gone now but she let me choose because it was obvious to her that I was going nuts. My father was a chronic alky, given to extremes, but mom finally had enough one night and threw him down the stairs. She was a big ol’ Ranch girl and knew how to tackle a problem, (as my father found out..).

          The other kids in the program turned out to be normal, good citizens. Nothing stellar, one became a Prof. at a midwest Uni. one became a Stewardess, the others evaporated from my life.

          My languages had served me well but, I don’t leave the country anymore and it’s like with everything else; either use it, or lose it.

          • Paula D February 16, 2023 at 12:37 pm #

            Thanks, bad, that is very interesting.

            So the other kids stayed in the grooming program but weren’t used by the government at adulthood?

            Or were they? Professor can indoctrinate the younger generation and stewardess can eavesdrop on conversations. Guess they can’t all be put into the White House.

            Just speculating.

    “Forces are aligning now to shake this creaking system down to its foundation.”

    Slowly, then all at once.

    Be certain, though, that the result will be that the government accumulates even more power.

    There are a few of us with enough ammo and supplies to hold out a few months, but most will be desperate after a few days and will be thankful for whoever brings order. Because of my health and age I moved to a town (pop 15,000) a few years ago and it would take a lot to get me to run to my bugout hole, but I think I can outlast the majority with my supplies. I will most likely be like the majority and just wait for the government to assert itself. I am confident it will, whether I like it or not.

        I was impressed – actually dismayed – by the way the gov-thugs disarmed the citizenry in New Orleans after Katrina. People had guns in their homes – what for, if they were willing to just turn them in when politely asked to do so?

        “This much is true: Among the flailing, ineffective, often extrajudicial responses New Orleans authorities mounted after Katrina’s landfall, one was to attempt to keep guns, legal or otherwise, off the streets. It started as disorder spread two days after the hurricane slammed Louisiana, when an AP reporter witnessed police asking fleeing residents ‘to give up any guns they had before they boarded buses and trucks because police desperately needed the firepower.’ A week later, New Orleans police superintendent Edwin P. Compass III earned infamy with a widely publicized call for blanket confiscation. ‘Only law enforcement are allowed to have weapons’, he decreed, a policy formed and carried out incompetently, with little regard for legal implications in the storm-blown leadership vacuum.”

        What hope will there be, when folks are so easy with their Second Amendment rights being snatched away?

    As stated they are now attempting to allow illegal aliens to vote in “local” elections and by local we all know they mean everything.

    Majella once attempted to tell me I was wrong and yet here again he is as we say proven wrong yet again.

    Over and over these leftists idiots lie about every unpopular and illegal thing they are trying to do.

      The House blocked the illegal vote in DC today.

      I wonder, if the vote was given to the illegals, how would they vote?

      A Democrat bloc? destruction of the GOP? Uniparty!!

      American citizenship would be worth nothing!

      If you want to vote in either Montpelier or Winooski VT the polling places will welcome you, wherever you are from.

      Next month Burlington will vote to allow the same, having said ballot initiative endorsed unanimously by the city council.

      Bernie Bros territory, something to keep in mind.

      Watching TV this morning and they showed the usual line of illegals on our Southern border. What struck me was the total absence of women or kids in the line of all military-aged men. There can be only two reasons for this ongoing disaster, IMHO, the first being the introduction of virtual additions to the Demoncraps storm troopers, antifa and blm, with the millions of illegals now and future, who are totally dependent on the government for support, and especially their beer money. The second is something China Joe and the Biden mafia have practiced adeptly for so many years. Pure graft and bribery from the cartels to the Bidens that permits the cartel control of our Southern border and even control in our interior. With the cartels making billions, millions to the Bidens is nothing to the drug lords. We are facing the very real danger of becoming as dangerous and out-of-control as Mexico, thanks to China Joe and the Mexican drug cartels. The Bidens have always been for sale, but treason seems to hold no power over them.

      ben,
      Several years ago, maybe even a decade, I read a book written by Jim Rickards, who gave six indicators that would portend the metaphysical apocalypse of the US empire.

      …One was to allow illegal immigrants to vote.

  63. JohnAZ February 13, 2023 at 7:28 pm #

    Okay Jarek. Let us use some examples

    Capitalism The USA? mostly, but not for long. Private sector runs the economy using free market and competitive price control. Winners become rich. losers try again or fall out.

    Marxist Communism No place, never has been, always been destroyed by its socialistic base and greed.

    USSR communism A joke, but a powerful one. Total socialism with an attempt at central ownership and control. People either join the party or fall out to serfdom.

    Here I agree with you. USSR communism is a derivative of capitalism, it is the method of control when too much power is put into too few hands, when capitalism is allowed to run out to where too few survivors exist. It is where the US is right now. The key words are too much power in too few hands. The death of capitalism is the birth of USSR communism.

    Fascism where the government runs the economy for the good of the state. Hmmm, sounds very familiar. China, Russia, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, actually all the sheikdoms of the Middle East. Totally dependent on the quality of the government, no competitive marketplace, winners and losers are set by the government. Fascism could end up in feudalism, and militaristic as the state needs defense. The basis of BRICS+?

    A really good example to demonstrate.

    Small town America was happy with its capitalistic structure, small business ran the show, politics was run by people scratching each others backs, usually a larger company hired some of the people as a labor pool,

    Then a large corporation, Bad capitalism, moved in to take over the economy by using economies of scale. Not just Walmart either, Target, Dillards, Krogers, you name it. Malls outside of town, the labor pools pushed to entry level.

    A group of the people fell out in competition. In America, this started in the Great Depression, slowed in the war, then picked up in the 60s. Part of the boomer generation fell out, became gimmes in competition and started the real welfare state we enjoy today. The same voices advocating for them, still do.

    American has been on the same track ever since, with more people falling out as we became more corporate with our economy. Tax laws and lobbying in DC just acceleratedthe process.

    We are now in the final stages of terminal capitalism, everything is computerized, centralized, the losers patrol the streets, socialism becomes more appealing to the public to take care of them. The public get evil government as the cause of the bad capitalism come into government power. The end result could be feudalism.

    So our choice is fascism, allowing uniparty control with the state making all the big decisions about our lives, like China, or USSR communism where not only are the decisions made by the state but everything you thought you owned is owned by the state. You will own nothing and be happy! Sound familiar? Neither sounds very appetizing to me.

    Or we can have a Long Emergency and return to the small town localized economies of the 1800s. Hmmm, I think some folks have named that as a return to happiness and peace.

    Marxist Communism will never even be in the picture.

    So is the fate of the world going to be fascism vs. USSR communism? BRICS+ vs. WEF?

    JHK and peak oil says we may return to local control where barter capitalism may return.

    Which would you prefer?

    • Jarek February 14, 2023 at 1:16 am #

      Without virtue, no system will work. Remember, the small timers were obsessed with becoming bigger, with a few becoming the giants. Where was the virtue in that? The Capitalist ethic is amoral at best, and evil in the final stage.

      If it is to bring good time again long term, it will only be because of the lack of natural resources that insures it stays small.

      Fascism can be good, if the Leader is good and the people are good. Obviously it can go bad too. But such a centralized system will conquer the World made by Hand. If you recall in Mr Kunstler’s final novel, two large States, one Black racist, and the other White racist, were going to war with each other. Either one would devour Union Grove in time – Even given the lack of modern technology and abundant oil. This kind of thing happened even in ancient time after all.

      Job and his people were a theocracy. Karp and his people a warrior band, with him as War Chief. And the Judge was a Lord on a manor, with many serfs – another order!

      Union Grove was doomed except for the influx of the Job’s religious warriors – Ex US Marines.

        Yes, it is virtue. There’s a lady named Jennifer Zeng I want you to meet, guys. She was part of Fallon Gong, and went through some tortuous times. Here channel is called Inconvenient truths.

          The Fallon Gang, eh? If the Irish gangs had practiced Falun Gong, maybe they would have triumphed over the Italians and the Jews.

          But for whiskey, the Irish would rule the world in any case. Is Falun Gong strong enough to overcome the blessed curse of Aqua Vitae?

        “Fascism can be good, if the Leader is good and the people are good.”

        Mussolini famously described fascism as the collusion of state and business interests for their own mutual benefit. I would consider Mussolini to be very knowledgeable about the subject of fascism, so I take his statement seriously. If true, fascism is good for nobody but the state and a few private interests. I’m my opinion you are posting BS.

        “Obviously it can go bad too.”

        No kidding! Using Mussolini’s definition, we are a thoroughly fascist nation and getting progressively worse. When fascism goes bad stuff starts blowing up everywhere, countries get invaded, prison camps and political prisoner camps get constructed, all media outlets are spewing either corporate or government propaganda, and everyone has a miserable time.

        “But such a centralized system will conquer the World made by Hand.”

        So far, no such centralized system of tyranny has worked against a population as well armed as ours is. Serious tyrannies always confiscate firearms first. If the survivors in the world made by hand are all locked and loaded, it might be very difficult to “conquer” them. It also depends on the strength of local sheriffs and state governments just how much we are to be “conquered”.

        “If you recall in Mr Kunstler’s final novel, two large States, one Black racist, and the other White racist, were going to war with each other. Either one would devour Union Grove in time – Even given the lack of modern technology and abundant oil. This kind of thing happened even in ancient time after all.”

        Maybe, maybe not. If our food delivery system breaks down completely due to economic or even military chaos, the death toll in the US due to mass starvation and internal strife will be so shocking and so horrific that the survivors might lose their interest in inflicting yet more pain and bloodshed upon themselves with yet more fruitless wars.

        • Jarek February 14, 2023 at 2:17 pm #

          Well of course – it won’t happen for awhile, as in decades or generations in the case of a complete break down. Kunstler is rushing it to tell the story. A common technique.

          But raiders? Warrior bands? Cannibalism? That kind of “warfare” will be immediate.

          • Woodchuck February 14, 2023 at 3:11 pm #

            If anything happens that prevents diesel engines from running for a couple years, most of us in the USA will be gone, that will be the complete breakdown and return to the 1800’s lifestyle.

            If there’s no diesel there’s no food. And that’s all there is to it. I see no guarantee whatsoever that we’ll have diesel available for decades. Our food availability depends on farm tractors, trains, barges, and big trucks running constantly – all burning a lot of diesel fuel. And we won’t be farming using solar or wind powered electric tractors. Our ag system is hopelessly complicated and totally dependent on chemical and mechanical resources that might not be available sometime in the near future. Famine is one of the four horsemen – and they are saddled up and about to take poor ole Jarek for a ride.

    A few days ago, Lula, the newly reinstalled corrupt communist Brazilian puppet, made the vaccine mandatory for children to the extent that the poor’s benefits are tied directly to vaccination compliance.
    No vaccine, no benefits.

    And yet people were stumped as to why so many poor and formerly poor athletes and celebrities supported Bolsonaro.

    Enough has been said, reported, and confirmed about the vaccine‘s efficacy, but when are these scientists and experts going to investigate and report as to why these tyrannical leaders are so dead-set on forcing this vaccine on humanity.?

    Why are they pushing and demanding the vaccine on the masses?
    Now, after everything has been reported, after the pandemic has been “declared” over?

    It is time to move on to the truths. We know the lies.

            “All wars are banker wars”

            Since the invention of banks.

            And since the need arose, with the decline of feudalism, to pay soldiers.

            Merriam-Webster, SOLDIER:
            “Middle English souldiour, sodiour, soudier, from Old French souldiour, soudier, from soulde, soude ****pay****,

            Why were Hessian soldiers fighting on the side of the British in the Am. Rev. War? They had been “rented out” to the Brits by the Duke of Hesse, who needed cash.

            His banker was Meyer Amschel Rothschild, of Frankfurt am Main (in Hesse).

            Rothschild made a lot of dough financing wars, generally lending to both sides.

    No Jim, this is not all a CCP plot. It is instead the WEFer-US-West owner-elite class seeking to make everyone’s political-economy resemble that of China’s. China is the poster child of WEF globalist-capitalists. They want American all to be good, obedient, socially-controlled collectivist-minded ants like Chinese worker ants are. Only problem with China, as far as the WEFers are concerned, is that it is not owned by them, and doesn’t completely comply with all of their policy desirements.

    As for the balloons, the USA has military bases all around China, and all sorts of spying assets deployed there, probably even including some balloons of its own. The balloon incident just came along at a propitious moment to be a good attention-distracter from the truth about NordStream.

    Given the presumed realities before us its sorta more fun and relaxing to contemplate an alien invasion. Where could you really run and hide to? They could probably see through everything to begin with lol. That is assuming that the aliens are hyper intelligent. It may not be quite as great if they are just some plain ole viruses or bacteria.

    But yeah, I too am so tired of these people on so many levels its really unspeakable at this particular point. Literally everything is a psychological operation, a hologram, a deep fake, an AI moderated experience and what have you. How long can a house of cards civilization keep going with literally no centers of authority? This doesn’t feel sustainable and that is actually very frightening. It seems like they are gearing up to do something really big again since they have perhaps overplayed their psyops hand. Unfortunately the message to a weary public is – now is not the time to rest on your laurels. Every week I always come here and CFN is here. It is my rock lol. Thank you Mr. K!! Nite nite all 🙂
