What Just Happened?

“All these idiots whose ‘identity’ is literally a ‘protected class’ are not protesting anything. Their whole victim act is sponsored, enabled & signal boosted by every powerful institution. The entire elaborate charade amounts to power petitioning itself.” —Aimee Terese on X

    If you haven’t discerned this yet, the Party of Chaos — Globalism’s “fifth column” in America — lost ground badly in early December even as the country supposedly enters its annual Christmastime coma. You know what a fifth column is? I will explain: it is a subversive enemy force operating inside a nation to sabotage its interests. The Party of Chaos, of course, is the party of “Joe Biden” the fictitious “president” euchered in plain sight to that position via flagrant chicanery in the 2020 Super Tuesday primary and then the free-for-all fraud-o-rama of the general election that year.

     This subversive Party of Chaos (with Marxist characteristics), has worked overtime for years to mindfuck Americans into destroying their own country. Just think of the absurdities you are asked to swallow daily and the punishments meted out for opposing them. It all came to an interesting inflection point lately with the three presidents of exalted universities failing spectacularly to cover their asses in congressional testimony about antisemitism on campus.

     At issue was why, after years of grandstanding on the oppression of victim groups, and censoring, silencing, cancelling, and crucifying alternate opinions, they gave their students and faculty a pass in recent weeks on yelling for the extermination of Jews. Wow, did that business disorder the whole Woke cosmography! I’ll tell you why:

     My people, the Jews, including a major chunk of the intellectual class, assumed leadership in the Woke crusade because the Holocaust of the 1940s established us as the world’s premier oppressed victim group. That badge of honor stuck for decades. Seventy percent of American Jews vote for the Party of Chaos, which used to be the Party of Civil Rights, which used to be synonymous with truth and justice. Thus, for decades, we American Jews were able to feel marinated in virtue.

     Incidentally, the reason American Jews went all in for the Civil Rights movement was because after the big war and all its horrors they felt a victory for expanded tolerance and acceptance in America — the defeat of “Jim Crow” in particular — could only be a good thing for Jews, who, by the way, had demonstrated that a former “out” group could succeed spectacularly in 20th century America if permitted to try, which suggested that other “out” groups could too, and ought to be allowed to try. For Jews, America turned out to be the promised land, and one can easily see how that rhetoric jibed so well with Martin Luther King and his followers in the 1960s.

     But the Civil Rights crusade is history now and American intellectuals, Jews especially, appear to be secretly disillusioned and rather ashamed at the less than satisfactory results, such as intractable black poverty and crime. Successful American Jews have been out of their own ghettos for decades, and they have no desire to live adjacent to any black ghetto if they can help it — though they would never dare admit it. However, they flocked to and flourished in the ghetto of elite academia, where they could make a good living in the commerce of ideas, luxuriate in enhanced social status (especially at Ivy League schools), with the bonus of fabulously easy work requirements (two classes a week and then summers off, what a deal!).

        Life on campus has become increasingly uncomfortable in recent years as Wokery ramped up. Lately, the demonization of all white people, including most Jews, became the order of the day to account for and expiate the disappointments of the Civil Rights program. It required considerable cognitive dissonance for American Jews, especially in higher education, to go along with the growing aggressive absurdity of Woke politics. And then their remaining illusions blew up in the fall of this year after Hamas went on its savage rampage and Israel decided to bring down the wrath of Yahweh to remind the world what never again means.

      American Jews on campus — in the crucible of victimhood politics — now find themselves called out as “oppressors” and “colonizers” on the seesaw of social justice. No longer an “out” group, they are fingered as a cruel and hate-worthy “in” group of the most privileged sort. Jewish students on campus began to feel like they had targets painted on their foreheads. At some colleges, they were indeed actively harassed and menaced. And after all they’ve done, and all the money they’ve given, to assist all the other victims, have-nots, left-behinds and marginalized in this world! And finally, to see how they were sold out by those three smirking boss-girl elite college presidents at the witness table in Congress, equivocating so strenuously that it seemed to affect the oxygen content in the room. From the river to the sea. . . woe unto you!

       And now, an even bigger question looms: with Wokery unraveling on campus, will it now also unravel the Party of Chaos — and its ability to act as Globalism’s fifth column undermining our country? Personally, I think it is indeed the beginning of the end of all that, especially the disgraced intellectual class of America’s ability to play along for mere social status brownie points. Perhaps we’ll all begin to discern that the next trip to be laid on the people of this land will be the final one, the Big Enchilada, the event that will truly knock the wind out of Western Civ and leave it gasping and wheezing on the floor: blowing up the banking system. When that happens, we’ll all finally know just where things stand, and then maybe we’ll all start to sing together.

    The near west side of Milwaukee used to be heavily Jewish, around the Washington High School campus and the St. Joseph Hospital. Many beautiful, huge houses were built in the area, mainly along Sherman Blvd. These were owned and inhabited by Jewish intellectuals and doctors. Now that entire area of Milwaukee is ghettoized, turned over into falling down rat traps. The race riots in the 1960s and 70s were the undoing of Milwaukee. Now it is considered one of the most segregated and racially divided cities in America.

    • megabeth December 11, 2023 at 10:10 am #

      You speak soothly about the city of my birth, Cowbell. Lots and lots of Jews near where I started out in Thurston Woods; my mother worked for a druggist named Kesselman. I was a toddler during the disordered summers of the late 60s and remember the fear driving down the streets, and the anger each time someone busted up my folks’ storefront, burgled the merchandise, and smeared shit all over the door handles and locks. I guess we were part of the white flight in the early 70s, and boy, did a lot of us move north. I won’t even go to Milwaukee, these days.

    • hortonz December 11, 2023 at 11:22 am #

      The Left doesn’t actually like the Palestinians you see. It secretly despises them but it hates Western Civilization, especially the branch of it called Israel more and any enemy of Western Civilization is by definition an oppressed group.

      • Rowdypiglet December 11, 2023 at 12:20 pm #

        hortonz, the left does indeed covertly despise the Palestinians, as it also covertly despises black people. That becomes very apparent on reading their contemptuous and rage filled responses to any black person who refuses to identify as a victim or who opposes their narrative in any way.

        I always find it fascinating when this takes the form of persuading black people to support policies that are an open admission of inferiority. Black support for diversity admissions into universities, and diversity hiring practices, make the clear statement that blacks cannot compete on a level playing field. What a coup it is to get blacks to implicitly admit this by their support of lowered standards (an ongoing process, since they are seemingly never low enough). It’s not as though leftists have failed to notice that these policies actively harm the very people they claim to be helping.

        You could reasonably make the argument that leftists think this is a desirable and intended outcome, particularly in that it casts suspicion on any black person who is talented and who gained their position in life through ability and hard work.

      While I recognize that Jewish people happen to be the flavor of the day, for people to pick on, this is not new. George Soros and his NGO’s have been thinking of ways to divide Americans and sew chaos however, and wherever, they are able. Just go back and remember Occupy Wallstreet, BLM, Others, and now Jewish people. They have been throwing a number of things against the wall and, unfortunately for the populace, BLM and Anti-Semitism have stuck. That will ensure more of the same. Aside from that Kunstler gave a good explanation as to why Jewish Americans have been voting against their own interest, by supporting Democrats, for decades. They have also managed to control the black vote, even though abortion prinarily targets blacks, and is once again, against their best interest.

      • Jarek December 11, 2023 at 12:38 pm #

        Both sides are against Whites and Whites are too cowed or confused to take their own side.

            The black population is something like 40% lower than it should have been because the eugenicists at Planned Parenthood killed those kids and likely (and illegally) sold their parts for profit.

    American Jews may have felt the defeat of “Jim Crow” in particular — could only be a good thing.

    But Israeli Jews have been practicing Jim Crow on Palestinians since 1967–with full American support.

    Today, as in 1948, Israel’s government is killing of Palestinians in Gaza in an effort to remove them.

    Soc-Det — There is indeed a very strong analog between American ghetto Black people and Palestinians — both have demonstrated a marked proclivity for antisocial violence. That behavior has had very unfortunate consequences for both groups. There is only one remedy, really: to behave better. It’s a harsh truth, but there it is.– JHK Admin

    So I find it hypocritical, or amusing (as in a joke in very bad test) to read how Jews are so much in support of civil rights, given that the Jews who ARE principled on this issue, and there are many in the US and Israel, are a minority and completely inconsequential today. The Likud, like-minded American Jews, and their non-Jew friends in the Israeli lobby are all in on the ongoing genocide of Palestinians.

    Germans used Zyklon-B as a sledge hammer, the IDF uses AI, but the goal is the same. And unlike the Holocaust, which the German government kept under wraps, this genocide is one the whole world can see.

    • Cankerpuss December 11, 2023 at 10:21 am #

      Even Arab nations don’t want the Palestinians. Why? Because they are trouble makers. Rabblerousers. Naughty people. If they’d get their act together, purge the terrorists from their ranks and behave themselves they might be a little better.

      • TravisB December 11, 2023 at 11:34 am #

          No kidding. Of all the random places for a Jewish state, they had to choose, I don’t know, there. What were they thinking?

        • MrMangoOnMyShoulder December 11, 2023 at 9:12 pm #

          Because that is the way humans work. We take, and if someone doesn’t push back, we take more. All societies do this, since forever.

          They just haven’t figured out the right way to push back. Random market bombings and firing missiles from 20 miles away into church parking ramps doesn’t exactly get their point across in a meaningful way.

          It’s a cycle that can only end with destruction and rebuilding, or not continuing to give power to those who just want to keep blowing up a suburban Kwik-e-Mart to say, “See? That’ll show ’em.”

        • MrMangoOnMyShoulder December 11, 2023 at 9:13 pm #

          The Palestinians are unfortunately playing from a third-grade handbook on conflict resolution.

    • neurodoc December 11, 2023 at 10:28 am #

      Some groups simply cannot BEHAVE BETTER, violence and disorder is in their genetic makeup, as unpopular as that concept is now (despite massive valid research showing genetics as a major determinate of all behavior). Why have palis been kicked out of every arab nation that let them in? Why are so many blacks still killing and drugging in blue city shitholes, despite years and years of the ‘great society’ money giving and affirmative action programs to give them a leg up? Answer: genetics. No apologies for having a non woke but science based point of view on this.

      • Cankerpuss December 11, 2023 at 10:43 am #

        Neuro, I think you are right. These people can’t behave themselves because they don’t have the ability to do so. They also do not have the ability to govern themselves. Most African nations are in a constant state of civil war between warring factions, tribes and warlords. South American countries are constantly changing governments. To try and hand these people self governance is like trying to tell a 3 year old and interest rates on a credit card. They don’t grasp it. It is outside of their cognitive ability.

        All they know is tribalism and violence. Sometimes you’ll get a black or brown man who wants to try to live by white man’s rules but these people are shamed and austracized by members of their own race.

        • hmuller December 11, 2023 at 11:30 am #

          There’s a fact which few want to face. And it involves the IQ test bell curve for people of African heritage. Lower IQ people, regardless of race, are more emotional and less logical in their responses. Violent and sexual behavior is less controlled.

          Wokism insists on equality of results (not opportunities). Unqualified people are put in jobs they can’t handle, and society as a whole suffers.

          Of course, there are exceptions and plenty of personal anecdotes one may recount. But I’m talking about the statistical big picture.

          And believe it or not, I’m not happy about it. I wish all ethnic groups were equally abled in every way. But we have to deal in reality, not wishes

          • Jarek December 11, 2023 at 12:44 pm #

            Affirmative Action for Whites in basketball and football would go a long way in opening up the conversation. The Bell Curve must be required college reading. Tests will be given! Blacks won’t be able to pas them. Out they go!

          • wokethis December 11, 2023 at 2:00 pm #

            “We” are in a heap o’ trouble. Due to the “diversity/equality” BS, entrance exams for simple tasks like med school, air traffic control etc have been either lowered, or when that didn’t work, changed to a simple pass or fail. I can hardly wait for the useless eaters to remove the “fail” grade. Yes, you too can do or be anything you want to as long as you can be identified as not privileged…

          • hmuller December 11, 2023 at 2:55 pm #

            Good point. What if you knew every air traffic controller in the tower was an AA hire who failed the test.

            Would your heart soaring with joy for the equity and diversity be tempered by selfish concerns for personal safety? Perish the thought.

        • Rowdypiglet December 11, 2023 at 12:43 pm #

          “There is indeed a very strong analog between American ghetto Black people and Palestinians — both have demonstrated a marked proclivity for antisocial violence. That behavior has had very unfortunate consequences for both groups. There is only one remedy, really: to behave better. It’s a harsh truth, but there it is.–”

          I wish it weren’t so, but have no ability to pretend any longer, give people the benefit of the doubt, etc. The chaos caused by one of these two groups of humans has changed one of the safest, most comfortable, most civilized places in which to live (Sweden) into the rape capital of Europe where bombs go off daily. There’s no point in pretending that this group is being victimized or oppressed in Sweden.

          The situation among ghetto blacks in this country, and even among some who should know better, simply cannot be tolerated unless we wish to devolve back to the jungle. It’s gone beyond the point where we can afford, from safe suburbs, to speculate about the reasons. We have given them free rein, and no place is safe anymore. We will either deal with it, however harshly we must in order to put a stop to it, or we’re finished.

          That said, I recently read an interesting book, “Bad Genes” by Barbara Oakley. She makes the point that, by our societal preferences, we engage in a kind of (un)natural selection that eventually produces certain kinds of people. I think it’s a daring book, and I’m sure it has been and will be attacked for the inescapable conclusion that there are racial and genetic differences between people, including those that pertain to intelligence.

          It’s suggested that the Ashkenazy Jews are more intelligent because their societal structure favors the survival of the smartest. Intelligence and intellect are prized, and a man who has them (and nothing else, materially) will be welcome to marry the daughter of a rich merchant, which in turn will allow him to leave more surviving progency – who will be brought up in the same culture. Thus, the more intelligent are likelier to survive even if they are weak and unworldly. Whereas, as was pointed out, in European Christian culture the smartest and most scholarly went into the church and became monks, removing themselves from the gene pool. Likewise, a culture that executes the most violent eventually produces people less inclined to violence and easier prey for those from cultures where the violent rise to power unimpeded, having had more opportunity to pass on their genes.

            Yes, a gifted student of the Talmud might never be able to make his mark on the world outside the narrow world of Talmud study. Too nervous and cold to be a Rabbi. But IQ is passed down far more readily than character. His children might well have at least some of his IQ and be of normal temperament. This is how a people are elevated.

        • BoomerDoomer3 December 11, 2023 at 1:16 pm #

          The house next door to mine is a rental. The last two tenants have constantly misbehaved in various ways. For example, the last tenant changed the oil in their pickup and dumped the old oil at the base of a grapevine that is on the property line. The current tenants have three dogs and a cat and the leasing agreement would have stipulated no pets. Junk is literally spilling out of the house. Box spring mattress, various forms of trash, etc. Although the house has central air, they installed a window unit and filled the space above the unit with cardboard. The unit — and the cardboard — are still in place even though temps are below freezing most nights. The tenants and their guests can’t utter a sentence without using the f word or mf word two or three times. They spill trash down the alley that I pick up. Thanks to some court documents I know that the woman who is the lessee is 41 and dating a 27 year old felon. I could go on but you get the picture.

          By the way, both tenants have been white folk. Bad behavior is not just limited to one or two races.

            It seems to me, Elk, that the only the people who have had low rent black and low rent white neighbors on more than one occasion would have much of an idea which is worse.

            Sometimes what “everybody knows” isn’t the same as reality.

        Yes and one has to take into consideration that the population who remain in any war-torn area are not the “best and brightest.” Those folks left a long time ago.

        It’s always the pattern.

        My European ancestors who had initiative, inventiveness and sense of independence left several generations ago. They were not alone of course which is why the remaining European population is so easily manipulated. They are not the “best and brightest” – those folks left a long time ago.

            We have always admitted that. It’s the Left that won’t admit genetics play any role. And they won the culture war because the Big Money wanted them to win.

            How much do races differ from each other? What’s your scale? Compared to an elk, Greta Thunberg looks a lot like Kobe Bryant. But in human terms, they’re quite different. Got it?

        Neurodoc,

        Regarding genetics, I think you are right about genetics, but I think it must be said that the data seems to say (at this point) that it is a matter of different frequencies of genetic tendencies in different groups, not that all members of one group have one set of genes. This is probably what the DRD4 repeat data would show if scientists were given the freedom (and funding) to study it – right now all we see is the tip of the iceberg.

        The biggest problem is that we are allowing people (primarily young black males) with anti-social tendencies to create havoc and drag a whole segment of their population along with them.

        There are plenty of anti-social whites, but they are not given same the free-rein to dominate a segment of the culture, nor are excuses made for them.

        The proportions in various populations would probably be found to differ if the subject could be properly studied, but it is the lack of proper restraint that is bringing our cities to the brink. At this stage, if the studies were done the issue has become so inflamed that the data would be rejected by many.

      What does it signify when Palestinian supporters chant “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free”. Surely the only way for this to become reality is for the extermination of all Jews in Israel.

            The reason Israel hasn’t formally annexed Judea Samaria is because they too have had a significant deranged liberal contingent that has believed in fairy tales like the Arabs want peace and can create a prosperous and placid neighbor on its border.

        That sentence is not an ad hominem at all. You obviously don’t know what the term means. It would be an ignorant rant coming out of anyone’s mouth or pen

        I also followed up with solid information to support my assessment of the statement.

        My post has nothing to do with Black people. Equating Palestinians with Blacks and then basing arguments on that false equivalence is a straw man argument.

        My post is about the actual history of Palestine, about Zionist violence there, and the Nakba.

        In chucking my post—a first!!– JHK is doing exactly what the Isrealis do: burying the truth about the violent birth of the Jewish State.

        Here it is again.

        Regarding Nakba denial and the true locus of antisocial—even sociopathic—violence in Palestine, please see the film “Tantura,” a documentary on the destruction of the beautiful Arab seacoast village by that name.
        Viewers can reach their own conclusions as to which people, the Palestinian Arabs or the Jews, build nicer.

        More important, though, is JHK’s promulgation of Nakba denial and the source of violence in Palestine. For a corrective, please see
        Tantura (released in 2022), here:

        httpZ://archive.org/details/tantura_2022

        Taddy Katz is an Israeli historian who saw his academic career in Israel destroyed and his family threatened and shunned when he touched the Zionist third rail—the taboo subject of the Nakba. Like Norman Finkelstein, who has been attacked and his academic career ruined by the Zionist elite and its minions in academia.

        Katz, in the 1970s, wrote a history PhD thesis based on the tape-recorded recollections of both perpetrators and victims of the horrific events in just one Palestinian village, Tantura. It was highly acclaimed by academics and received a high mark of 97.
        But then the denial and attack machine went into action.

        Many of these original interviewees and others who played a role in the group denial and shunning action are still alive and are interviewed once again by the director of the film.

        And for a more detailed overview of the massive dishonesty that is Nakba denial, and sheer low nastiness as now practiced by James Howard Kunstler, see Ron Unz’s new essay:

        httpX://www.unz.com/runz/american-pravda-the-nakba-and-the-holocaust/

        JHK will yet be hanging his head in shame. Such a shame that someone with genuinely valuable insights and writing skills turns out to be a vindictive racist know-nothing purveying lies.

          One could say that JHK’s left ear points, like a antenna dish, toward the US government and it’s goings on; while his other ear– the one with the apparent cigarette, complete, perhaps, with it’s filter and potential for smoke, lodged in it– points toward the Israel government.

          That writ, in an alternate reality, in part unbeknownst to JHK, where he was more permanently living in Israel, the cigarette might likely be in his other ear– the one pointing toward the American government.

      It’s a very frustrating topic to discuss because religion always seems to get in the way of finding the pain points and discovering remedies. We can’t seem to criticize Israel’s behavior as a nation without conflating it with anti-Semitism, likewise with Palestine and Islam.

      The countries of the world in the post colonial era adopted a code of conduct that was supposed to preclude any solution that stands on the foundation of might makes right.

      And we’ve already argued that THIS is just another might makes right solution. Some how criticizing THAT becomes Jew hate. Astounding.

      The Palestinians should have learned by now that shooting up your bigger, stronger, more powerful neighbor will result in getting hammered. What did they expect?

      The Israeli’s should have learned by now that ignoring your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore, who were unjustly EVICTED from their homes in the world’s last might makes right power play, will result in years of this kinda thing as each replacement generation comes of age.

      Seriously, put religion aside for a moment and look at this from the same juxtaposition the two of you have made. Blacks and Palestinians. Compare and contrast the role of each host country. I dare say, America’s treatment and governance of Black people has been orders of magnitude better than the treatment and governance of Palestinians by the Israelis.

      And to those who conflate the criticism of Israel with hatred of Jews in general please stop. In 2023 hating anyone for something so shallow is just the bullshit you tell yourself for not trying to understand them. Weren’t the Germans of the holocaust era Christians? Aren’t Russians and Ukrainians Christians? Stop it.

      “behave better. It’s a harsh truth, but there it is”

      Yes sir, we all need to behave better.

      What righteous God fearing human being would disagree with that?

      • Uncle Abraham December 11, 2023 at 1:40 pm #

        Your argument is flawed. I couldn’t care less whether you hate Jews or not – that’s your personal issue and perhaps problem if so. But trying to give immunity to your lie-filled fantasy depiction of Israel by claiming any criticism of it is prejudicial is sheer hypocrisy that blinds and binds you to being guilty of what you decry.

        • Alfred December 11, 2023 at 3:34 pm #

          What is more, and this really infuriates me…

          A Jew’s experience in America has also been orders of magnitude better than they’ve had in any part of the pre-1947 world. Jews in America have prospered and earned their way into very fabric of America. The real promised land, as our host says.

          And Israel has to bring these problems to America’s doorstep? Over 200 times has the United States vetoed UN Resolutions.

          We must separate the State of Israel, from the Synagogue of Israel if we are to judge their actions fairly the perspective of all humans. Separation of Church and State, hasn’t that been the mantra of the United States?

      JHK is probably not going to hang his head in shame.

      He has said too many intelligent things in the past to be dismissed.

      He knows exactly what is going on. He has consciously committed himself, at this time, to support Israel no matter what.

      JHK has chosen to use his pulpit to support a purely Jewish state in Palestine, created by dispossessing the native Palestinians, inhabited by Israeli citizens, who will be Jews who have rights, and perhaps Israeli subjects, others, but the others will have no rights to vote. They will be there as servants of slaves to Israelis.

      Those who cannot accept being slaves on their own land, need to go.

      Can you imagine if we applied the same standard to Jews or blacks in the US?

      “You can’t vote, you can’t go to American hospitals–you have your own, make do, you can’t own a gun, and you need to step aside when you see a real American walking in your direction. Otherwise, you can live elsewhere, or die”

      “Let us not ignore the truth among ourselves. Politically we are the aggressors, and they defend themselves. The country is theirs, because they inhabit it, whereas we want to come here and settle down, and in their view we want to take away from them their country.” David Ben-Gurion, 1938

            hmuller (where’s your umlaut?) – I do read JHK’s posts and have done so since 2008 or so, back when he used to talk about REAL things & real problems and discuss potential solutions.

            Watching his long, slow slide into the conspiracy rabbit hole has been both fascinating & heartbreaking. I recall his once stating that he was “allergic to conspiracy theories (in relation to 9/11 IIRC).

            Now, what he gives is diatribes that trigger all his current points of anger – “Joe Biden” for example with the inverted commas supposedly sufficing to underline his skepticism. What the actual fuck? He’s also STILL insisting that the 2020 election was rigged, that the Ukraine situation is the fault of the “Party of Chaos” (that’s so rich!), and that Israel has the right to murder every last Palestinian, with the use f American money & weapons. There are so many contradictions here – as the great Kris Kristofferson said in his iconic piece “The Pilgrim” “He’s a walking contradiction, partly truth & partly fiction, taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home.”

            So, no – I won’t be reading JHK to find out anything other than just how deluded and fucked he has become and to simply laugh at the rest of you.

          • Mike Sherman December 13, 2023 at 5:47 pm #

            To conclude, hmuller, yes – it WOULD take a real Superman to achieve what Biden’s administration has achieved in the two years when he had the House majority.

            You dare to openly write “Personally, I could drop Trump. I’m not into a cult of personality.” – Great…so will you dare to say, here in this forum and to your creaking old boy network down at the Cracker Barrell that you DO drop Trump?

          ““Migrants” in Germany are openly stating their intention to outnumber and outvote the German population and change the whole system of government.”

          Behold our local specialist in straw man arguments.

          As for “It is untrue that there were Muslims in that area before there were any Jews.”

          OMG, where to begin. The level of ignorance is dismaying.

          For starters, 20% of the Palestinians are Christians—the Christian communities of Palestine, Syria, Iraq, etc. are, obviously, some of the oldest in the world. That does not save their churches from destruction by Israeli bombs.

          Arab lands have contained large Muslim populations since the 8th century. But also Christian, jewish, and many other religious communities.

          In the whole world, the places where Jews encountered the MOST tolerance were the Arab and Muslim areas. The high point of Jewish culture was in Muslim Spain. The Jews of Baghdad were renowned.

          Jews, Muslims, and Christians coexisted in the Holy Land for centuries, including and up to the 20th Century. The problem is the ZIONISTS. In particular secular Revisionist Zionists from Russia.

          It is highly questionable that ANY Ashkenazim have any genetic connection to Palestine. The Palestinians are the local Semites, not Ashkenazim from Europe. Many of them were very likely originally Jews or Christians who converted to Islam after the general conquest by Muslim armies. This occurred throughout the lands that later became the Ottoman Empire. For instance, in many Balkan countries the Muslims are former Orthodox communities that converted.

          Your homework:

            I don’t see the straw man argument you speak of.

            It is a fact that there were Jews in the area before there were any Muslims.

            Where did I say anything about coexisting or not?

            It’s a fact that there are Muslims in Germany today claiming in publicly that they intend to take over.

            Arab lands have contained Muslims since the 8th century. Yes, who said they did not?

            People in this century don’t want to live like people in the 8th century, however, even most of the people in the Middle East.

            Probably why they don’t want the refugees from Gaza.

          • Socrates-Detroit December 11, 2023 at 5:52 pm #

            @islander yes, @beryl is being very clever. He puts up of fog of mostly BS, or marginal facts (the existence of Judaism predates the creation of Islam, hence it is untrue there were Moslems in Palestine before Jews, since the Jews were there).

            After trying to obfuscate the situation (the theft of Palestinians land and the abuses and murder of Palestinians) he concludes by saying …. “they don’t want refugees from Gaza…”

            See, THAT is the problem–the fact no one will take the Palestinians with open arms.

            It’s OK for the Israeli government to expel them or kill them, of course.

            Do you get it now?

          Oh man… There were no Muslims before there were Jews.

          There were plenty of Muslims living on that land in 1947. They were EVICTED during the Nakbah. (Thanks Islander).

        Palestinians do go to Israeli hospitals. They know how good the care is there. They know that Israeli doctors work hard to save the lives even of known Palestinian terrorists!!!

        Socrates from Detroit has apparently consumed a load of lethal toxins that have left him embittered and deranged. I’m giving him the benefit of a doubt that he isn’t simply a pathological liar. I don’t think that’s the case but his lies are destructive nevertheless, and firstly to himself.

        Ben Gurion said many things and if you look at all his words in context and compare them to a Muslim leader like the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Ben Gurion was a great humanitarian and made life much better for the Arabs who stayed in Israel and didn’t vacate like those who sided with the 5 Arab nations that attacked Israel at the inception of statehood.

        Those Arabs who sided with belligerents, who hoped to steal all that the Jews had bought and created in the land, ended up as permanent refugees because their brethren who were going to “liberate” them in their genocidal jihad against Israel never took them in.

        On the other hand, the Arab nations robbed and exiled going on a million Jews from their countries, which Jews were absorbed by Israel at great cost.

        Now those countries are mainly Juden-frei and Israel has an Arab population of approximately 20%. But they are genocidal?

        Get the hell out of here, liar!

        In these kinds of scenarios one could say “eat shit and die,” but the truth, and I’m extending a helping hand here like Ben Gurion did to the Arabs in his day – is that you’ve been eating shit for a long time and thereby killing yourself.

      Simple question Islander.

        Poor bner.

        Do try to keep up.

        Also, it is now established that the IDF killed hundreds of their own civilians and military. The Hannibal Option

            @Beryl, sorry, but that IS so. It’s been established, by Israeli press, that IDF killed xxx Israelis (civilians and military) in their quest to kill Hamas.

            It’s also been established that the Israelis used Hamas bodies to inflate the counts of the toll on Oct 07.

            There are some people in Israel, even among the Israelis who publicly state Palestinians are subhuman, (and of course those who predicted the backlash from years of human rights abuses), who are interested in knowing what actually happened.

      >> this genocide is one the whole world can see

      I can’t.

      Perhaps our understanding of the word “genocide” is different; to me, that means to “kill them all.” Yet their numbers continue to grow. Their population growth rate is actually higher than ours in the US, their birth rate is much higher, and their death rate is much lower. Jews must be terrible at conducting a decent genocide.

      • Paula D December 11, 2023 at 12:13 pm #

        The population of Gaza goes up by 4 every day. That is births vs deaths and emigration.

        Genocide is not the correct word. To me, it discredits the user.

        When I see the word “genocide” I just roll my eyes and move on.

        Same with “open air prison camp”. Prison camp?
        It is their country, albeit with strict border controls applied by Israel AND Egypt. Americans might be excused for not understanding border controls, but they can’t be excused for the condemnation so selectively applied to one country’s border control, while completely ignoring the other.

        Also, this “prison” offers incredible conjugal visiting, as pointed out in my first sentence. I am not a cornucopian, so I can see that exponential human growth in a limited area leads to problems, but that is for the cornucopians to solve, since they are convinced it is not a problem.
        After all, they tell us that the entire population of Earth can fit into NY City, so why would it be a problem to feed and water a measly 2 million (and growing) in Gaza?

        • Beryl of Oyl December 11, 2023 at 12:35 pm #

          Genocide and open air prison camp fit easily on a bumper sticker.

        • Jarek December 11, 2023 at 1:02 pm #

          Article II of the convention defines genocide as ANY of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such: … (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part. (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group. (e) Forcibly transferring children of one group to another group. The United States ratified the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide in 1988.

          Jarek: Dumbass Paula doesn’t think that anything should be done until a people are wiped out – then you can call it genocide!

          Paula, I admit the Israelis aren’t up to Stalin’s level of wiping out the Kulaks, but by the same token, the genocides in the Soviet Union didn’t start with him. Old “Trotsky” (Lev Bronstein) and Co have much to answer for as well.

          • Beryl of Oyl December 11, 2023 at 2:16 pm #

            I don’t see where Paula said or implied that at all.

          • Jarek December 11, 2023 at 6:00 pm #

            She’s says there’s no genocide going because her definition means complete extinction. That’s her private definition. See the real definition above.

            You get confused so easily. No doubt she’s trying to cover for Russian Communism by denying the whole concept of genocide. She’s a very dreary little beast.

          • Paula D December 12, 2023 at 11:13 am #

            I point out that when a population increases from 250,000 to 2,000,000 it is ridiculous to scream “That’s genocide!”

            So Jarek doubles down by posting the revised definition of genocide (same as revising “pandemic” and “vaccine”), but for some reason thinks that claiming that Israel is stopping Palestinians from reproducing is more convincing than saying that they are being mass murdered.

            250,000>2,000,000.

            Looks like that forced birth control is working about as well as the mass murder.

            But be sure to call me a commie for pointing that out! That always makes you seem more reliable.

          • Jarek December 12, 2023 at 12:54 pm #

            Good, Paula. We’re talking! Just like old times. So was it genocide in Rwanda, even thought not all the Tutsis were wiped out? What is the old or correct definition of genocide?

            I know they change things. There’s a schema of stages leading up to genocide. One of the stages was the destruction of a people’s monuments. That was eliminated before the wholesale tearing down of White monuments.

          • Paula D December 12, 2023 at 3:04 pm #

            I don’t consider Rwanda to be a genocide, no, even though our overlords insist it was (for their R2P purposes.)
            I call what happened there a pogrom.

            Genocide is what the US did to the natives here, which you are on the record as supporting.

            Why you suddenly have a bee in your bonnet for the Palis would be baffling, if it weren’t for your long self-documented hatred of the Jews, which can explain it.

            I also read on Unz a claim that Ireland was depopulated by rounding up the poor and destitute and selling them into slavery in the New World.
            Sounds legit, mostly because Ireland claims to have “lost” the census records for a century.
            Like the US “losing” the plans for flying men and their dune buggies to the moon, some things just aren’t believable.

          • Jarek December 14, 2023 at 1:23 pm #

            Define genocide. Define pogrom. Do you have a principle behind this or is it just eeny meeny miny mo?

            Uh no. Ireland was depopulated by the potato famine and then mass emmigration away from the disaster of both the famine and British rule. There was plenty of food in Ireland – they just wouldn’t let the Irish have any. So you’re right in terms of blame but wrong on the details.

            There are still lots of Indians around so how could it be genocide by your definition – to the extent I can infer it?

          • GreenAlba December 14, 2023 at 6:05 pm #

            “Sounds legit, mostly because Ireland claims to have “lost” the census records for a century.”

      Israel Has Spoken:

      There will never be a two state solution to resolve the question of Israeli lands stolen from its neighbors. Ever. There may have been half-hearted attempts to arrive at such an arrangement, or most likely it was just propaganda smoke screens for the Final Solution now underway.

      In choosing the path of genocide conducted in front of the entire world, Israel has chosen its fate. Perhaps not next year, but sooner or later it will cease to exist. They are only 20 million people, surrounded by 1.8 billion neighbors who justifiably hate them. The days when Israel’s fighter jets and bombs, paid for by their massive diaspora of banksters and landlords was enough has come to an end. Those former camel herders that surround them on all sides have much of the world’s oil $$$, and they have used it to develop technologically— in some cases even surpassing the West. The Iranians just displayed in public a home grown Mach 15 hypersonic missile that can reach any target in Israel in less than 5 minutes and against. which there is no known defense. The US has repeatedly tried and failed to develop an equal weapon to scare the Russians and Chinese with.

      It is only a matter of time until Israel’s 1.8 billion neighbors will no longer tolerate the infection within it’s region, and will have the means to bring it to an end. Israel’s only real ally in the entire world is the USA, a dying Empire so far in debt that the only course left to it is to inflate the debt away in a Wiemar-style inflation until they run out of wheelbarrows to carry the paper bills to the grocer for the daily potato ration.

      The USA has no army worthy of the name. The only way it can fill its recruitment goals is to offer citizenship to the millions of young men streaming across it’s southern border. (some of which are likely Iranian and Chinese mercenaries under orders from their home countries.) At least non-citizen recruits are likely to be men instead of the sexually confused, castrated Wokesters produced by our “social” system. They are led by Pedophile generals and Presidents seeking only to cover their asses by creating crimes so satanic that the world will forget about their personal crimes.

      The once feared Israeli army has grown soft as well. What rational young man wouldn’t rather go to the beach, chase girls, and then return to a cushy job in the software or Pharma business when the weekend is over? The events at the rock concert on the border on October 7 are symbolic of the state of the Israeli Army. There is some evidence that Hamas wasn’t aware of it until they stumbled upon the festival. They started rounding up as many hostages as they could and herding them in the direction of the border. A Israeli helicopter saw what was happening and radioed headquarters for instruction. “Kill them all” were the orders. So as many festival goers were killed by their own air force as were taken over the border as Hamas hostages. For any other army this story would have little credibility, but it is entirely consistent with the standing orders in the Israeli military. “Kill all captives,” especially if they are Israeli soldiers. What kind of loyalty do you expect from such an organization? About the same loyalty that the current Ukrainian “women, children and old men armed forces” command.

      • Opie December 12, 2023 at 5:49 am #

        I agree completely with your assessment and would add that traditional Americans are becoming more and more aware of the role some Jews have played in every phase of disorder that have occurred in the U.S. in the last 60 years, from women’s rights, porn, mass media, court cases, lobbyists, gay rights, the list goes on and on, the proportion of certain Jews is astonishing given their numbers. I could argue that some things needed to change, but the inorganic way it’s occurred has left the culture in tatters. Even if I sympathize with their plight, why should I care.

    • Anon1970 December 12, 2023 at 11:07 am #

      Did you know that the United Nations voted FOR the partition of the Palestinian Mandate into Jewish and Arab countries back in 1947? The Jewish leaders in Palestine supported partition but the Arabs rejected it. It was the best deal that the Arabs would ever be offered. You can find a picture of the proposed map on Wikipedia. It gave the Arabs a much larger area than Israel’s boundaries agreed to under the 1949 cease fire.

      • Uncle Abraham December 12, 2023 at 11:22 am #

        Ernest Bevin, British Foreign Secretary who worked on the partition of Palestine and was no great friend of Israel, did extensive interviews with the Jews and Arabs on their priorities, to help the British understand what they were dealing with. The conclusion:

        Number one priority of the Jews was to have a state.

        Number one priority of the Arabs was that the Jews didn’t have a state.

        That explains everything.

        Now, for those who think the Arabs are right and have their priorities straight, the God of Israel foretold long ago that He would re-establish Israel in the land He promised them. So your argument and fight is against Him.

        Glad to have that made clear.

      Coloring The Red Pill Blue: Embedded Counter-Subversions

      “Soc-Det — There is indeed a very strong analog between American ghetto Black people and Palestinians — both have demonstrated a marked proclivity for antisocial violence. That behavior has had very unfortunate consequences for both groups. There is only one remedy, really: to behave better. It’s a harsh truth, but there it is.” ~ JHK Admin

      I wonder if ‘behaving better’– whatever that actually means in some contexts– includes the embedded subversion of the State, much like the current incarnation of the State as an embedded ‘blue pill’ subversion of The People, and, ultimately, itself.

        “We’re living at a dangerous moment because… ’empire’, is in its last gasp, and empire, when it’s in its last gasp will do anything to sustain itself… The US does not want to see the indigenous view of water, or natural gas, or oil, or resources in the ground to prevail… I was in a meeting of U’wa people who are fighting oil development in Colombia… and [the way] they talk about oil… [is] completely alien to the western development and corporate development model– it just can’t be understood even. So as a result, corporations, and US and prevailing western powers, don’t think anything negative at all about going in and overpowering that if they can get away with it.” ~ Jerry Mander, ‘Alternatives to Economic Globalization: A Better World Is Possible’

      Victimhood as an honor. Why is it an honor? That kind of thinking is poison.

      It’s a horror to be victimized. But other groups have taken up the mantle of Victimhood and beat us over the head with it as if it was a cudgel. Defense has become Offense. And we will be guilt tripped unto death if we let them do it.

      The Tyranny of the Weak over the Strong. Or rather, the Weak becoming strong by pretending to still be weak. Nietzsche called it. He thought Christian would lead the charge. And far from being an Anti-Semite, he admired the Jews as being strong. But the Jews led the charge, and Christians were the victims of it.

      Yes, & they have been in America since the beginning. German Jews were part of the ill-fated Roanake Colony, brought along as assayers, goldsmiths, and blacksmiths if need be. Same with Jamestown 20 years later. There were many Jewish citizens in cosmopolitan Dutch NYC 1619-1670. In the Caribbean during the ‘Age of Exploration’ and later ‘the Golden Age of Piracy’, Jewish merchants served as importers, exporters, traders & facilitators of finance in Havana, the Bahamas, Hispanola, Guyana, Venezuela & dozens of other places. Later on Haym Solomon from Philadelphia was one of the main funders of the Patriot Cause during the American Revolution. This is just off the top of my head, with a little research many more examples could be cited I’m sure.

      • Jarek December 11, 2023 at 1:14 pm #

        They controlled much of the slave trade too. No doubt they later funded the anti-Slavery movement in the North. Then they funded both sides during the Civil War. We were fucked right from the get go.

          Well, I do have a book here ‘Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean’ by Edward Kritzler; in it, he does touch upon Jewish involvement in the African Slave Trade in the Caribbean, Spanish America & Brazil. The Dutch, Swedes, English, Spanish, Portugese, & French all engaged in the African Slave Trade. You might say Germans, Poles, Chinese, Malays & Fillipinos were involved too. (As crew members on mostly Spanish & Dutch ships) Africans were seen as just another commodity, like lumber from Honduras, gold from Peru, Silver from Mexico, and Codfish from New England.

          • Jarek December 11, 2023 at 6:05 pm #

            You might say that, but it would be fatuous. You should tell some dumb Polish jokes instead. Does Poland even have a coast?

            Many of the ships were owned, captained, and partially crewed by Jews. See the book, “The Grandees”.

            There were non-Jews involved as well of course. And of course the Africans themselves.

        Beryl, you remind me of a story about the great Jewish philosopher and physician Maimonides.

        The time, circa 1200. The place, the Sultan’s court in Cairo. Maimonides’ enemies accused him of treason. The Sultan was undecided. So he instructed his clerk to write the words “Death” and “Life” on separate pieces of paper, roll up the papers, and put them in a jar. Tomorrow, the accused would pick his fate, according to Allah’s will.

        The clerk hated Maimonides, and wrote “Death” on both pieces of paper. Then he got drunk and bragged about it to a bar girl. A Jewish bar girl, as fate would have it. She informed Mr M.

        The next day the court assembled. With great showmanship Maimonides pulls one paper from the jar and proclaims, “Let the word written on this paper be my fate.” He then swallows the paper and says, “Now let’s unroll the other paper to discover the fate I did not choose!”

            The Mongols haven’t apologized for the mayhem they caused a mere 800 years ago. The whole world is filled with people who feel no obligation to apologize for their ancestors’ misdeeds.

      Whatever the makeup of Harvard is right now, they have been down on Asians for awhile.

      Wokesters do not give a damn about anyone, it is a power move by a group to gain political power, sponsored by the likes of George Soros who is financing most of what is going on.

      This country no longer has a reason to exist as a unit. So many diverse elements have been brought in for political advantage that JHK’s common culture cannot exist any more. As groups come in, they segregate themselves with very few exceptions. White flight is only a part of it, Blacks live with Blacks, Asians with Asians, etc. Each community has its own characteristics, Whites, materialistic and results driven, Blacks create a materialistic gimme state, Asians create an aggressive cerebral group, Jews a Zionistic protect themselves group, Mormons , much like Jews, Hispanics, family oriented low expectation groups, an on and on.

      How can any country hold this together? Until the Party of Chaos acquired its power over the last forty years, the predominately European White common culture was able to hold things together.

      No longer, as long as that border stays open, the situation is going to just get worse.

      Jews are just the latest target. Just think from a Dark skinned point of view, Jews, an elite religious group that is light skinned, is European and controls its own group fiscally.

  11. socialisthater December 11, 2023 at 10:36 am #

    JHK speaks the truth here, but he left a couple of important things out. The biggest is that the “fathers” of Communistic Socialism included Jews who despised the Czarist (non-Jewish) autocracy in Russia. Then along came Hitler. Hitler personally hated Jews because, in pre-Nazi Germany, much of the wealthy capitalist class were Jewish. Hitler’s hatred of Communism stemmed from the fact that Soviet Communism was an ideological construct of Socialism invented by . . . Jews. In economic and governance nuance, Nazi Fascist Socialism differed little from Stalin’s Communist Socialism, but Hitler’s anti-Semitism overrode the similarities of the Nazi and Communist versions of Socialism. One should note that Hitler’s hatred of American capitalism was equally vicious, based, again, on the fact that many successful American capitalists were Jewish.

    After World War II, Socialists dared not admit that Nazi Fascism was, in fact, just another version of Socialism, so the Socialists entrenching themselves in Western academia and politics have spent three-quarters of a century calling the “new” purely anti-free market Fascist Socialism something else, such as “Democratic Socialism,” “Progressivism”, etc. Indeed, the American Left has fully embraced Hitler’s Fascist/Socialist model, where the government controls the media, disarms the civilian population, centrally plans the economy, controls and regulates almost all economic and social activity, but will allow certain large private monopolistic or oligopolistic corporatist organizations to exist and even prosper–so long as they pledge their total allegiance and subjugation to the regime. This is Hitler’s Socialist model and he said so:

    “The party is all-embracing. It rules our lives in all their breadth and depth… There will be no license, no free space, in which the individual belongs to himself. This is Socialism… Let them then own land or factories as much as they please. The decisive factor is that the State, through the party, is supreme over them, regardless whether they are owners or workers.” -Adolf Hitler

          Had he been allowed to go to art school Germany might not have been involved in the war exactly as it was leaving just Japan and laughably Italy.

          It was Hitler’s gift of speech that put him in the driver’s seat to launch his National Socialist party into power.

      Hmmm

      Just a thought.

      The Hebrews were created when God told Abram to migrate to Canaan. God insisted on absolute obedience to Himself. Mosaic law later wrote a society controlled by God’s law, for life as devotees to God. The entire Israel-Judah history is of aa people with blind obedience to Yahweh.

      The Judaic state is a reflection of this, obedience to God means obedience to the priesthood, ie the State. Even Jesus acknowledged that people owe obedience to a Man-state and to God. His deal was, however, that the individual is number one, that the Law is for the people and not vice versa.

      Israel is much more secular today, but it still hold up obedience to God and the state is paramount. Zionism, the desire to form a Jewish state, just aggravates the socialistic tendency.

      The Hebrews had a system after they conquered Canaan, based on Judges to pass”legislation” and keep the people on the straight and narrow. Not good enough,”We need a King”. Socialism raised its head, we need a leader to tell us what to do. The Jewish nation went down hill from that point, destroyed on a regular basis. Socialism does not and has never worked.

      • tuco22 December 11, 2023 at 11:28 am #

        Yes, and God warned them against a king, telling them what the results would be, but they wanted to be “like everyone else” and have a king. So they got Saul.

      If you’re going to pick something big up, you need two hands, right? A left and a right. So the Jews have endeavored to control both the Left and the Right. Guess what? They’ve succeeded by and large.

      Nationalism is the opposite of all they hold dear. And National Socialism is its strongest form. Fascism allows Putin to bring in Asians to repopulate the Donbass. It’s an utter failure since it doesn’t define who are the People.

      Yes, people who know how to do things and make money are honored in National Socialism. But does that mean no small farms or businesses? No. You’ve got it wrong.

      From the Marxist pov, it’s not Socialism for this reason and because of its overt nationalism and racist. They call it Far Right. The Right calls it Far Left. Both are right. Both are wrong. It’s its own line entirely – off the usual Left/Right spectrum.

    Trying to debtate this point with people like JHK is similar to attempting to converse with a cult member. The heuristic illustrated in the mantra “Jesus loves me, this I know, because the Bible tells me so” is all the evidence one needs that you’re dealing with a zombie.

    It demonstrates that someone simply does not understand the broader issues, and are entirely ignorant of the actual power politics at play. And as the saying goes, it’s a waste of time to attempt to provide advice/insight, because the wise don’t need it, and fools won’t listen.

    But like the poor Don, I’ll try once more: it’s about the class divide, prey vs predator, the eternal struggle of those attempting to gain power, hold power and defeat (or be defeated by) new challegers as each successive generation turns the cycle once again.

    The single most effective tool in the arsenal of power is to prevent class unity and alliances from being formed that would enable to vast majority to easily overcome the small minority. Hence, the ancient strategy of ‘divide and conquer’.

    And so we have Jim’s quote on the masthead, but with the added twist of delicious irony that our host simply does not have the self awareness to recognize that his group were once themselve a favored tool to create many of the most primary wedges found in Western society today.

    mitchellc — It’s quite clear in what I have said. Yours is an idiotic straw-man argument. –JHK Admin

    And, just like the whites who defeated Gernany & Japan and felt that they had achieved some honored position, only to find out that by the late 50s to early 60s they were slated for diminished power and indeed to be physically replaced, the Jews who drove that process as agents of the elite, and thought they had become the new bosses, found out the hard way that they too are on the chopping block.

    It’s really too bad JHK doesn’t get this broader picture. Instead we get this limited, frankly shocking simplistic reaction as he and others retreat to some kind of ‘safe space’ to wonder how it all went so wrong.

    Jim, here’s a clue: you’re now the Indian, the new segment to be marginalized, reduced and eventully replaced. Welcome to the club.

      It’s all very simple: any person or group who gains too much power must be reduced. It’s nothing personal, just simply business.

      The smart money is probably already inching towards the door. How many dumb Nazis stayed behind until the end?

      Perhaps you should not just angrily reply to comments, but actually consider what the majority of people here are saying. If you did, you would recognize a certain trend, and with a bit of retrospection, figure out the direction history is taking.

      Mitchellc — You don’t seem to read this blog with comprehension. And you’re too cowardly to state what you believe “the trend” in the comments is. Should I guess? Are you saying that many posters here want to eliminate Jews? Or shove the Jews out of Israel? — JHK Admin

    After “emancipation”, “African-Americans” were hardly equal and did not enjoy the same rights as rights and legal protections as whites. They could be lynched, swindled, with no recourse, for about 100 years.

    I’m not a psychologist, but that might have affected what you consider as Blacks’ “marked proclivity for anti-social violence”.

    Tuco– Most ethnic and religious groups have grievances about what they have endured through history. It’s not an excuse for bad behavior, in particular homicide and theft. — JHK Admin.

    So, by logical extension, then, I would assume you support their rioting and burning down their communities, and the “legalized” shoplifting they do. I don’t know how much “justice” this earns them, but I know it nets them fear and contempt.

    And after civil rights, some “politically liberal” Americans with anti-family, anti-Christian views (no school prayer!) found benefit in making Blacks dependent on government.

    That was LBJ. When he pushed the civil rights act and the “great society,” you know he said, “I’ll have those niggers voting democrat for the next 100 years,” and he was right! They’ve been voting democrat ever since. I don’t know how much good it’s done them, however.

        So, are you saying that blacks were not lynched from 1865 to about 195x or 196x?

        Or are you saying that some did have legal recourse? That there were some lynchings in which the perpetrators were caught, tried and convicted?

        What was more common then? Tell us?

        As to school prayer, according to Google, in Engel vs Vitale, 1962, Steve Engel was Jewish.

          Did I say that no blacks were ever lynched? Blacks became the more common victims of lynching after reconstruction, but it existed before that.

          Swindled with no legal recourse? In the whole country? Bullshit.

          People were lynched where there was no system of justice. Cattle rustlers were strung up in the west.

          Of the 2.000 lynchings in the south over those years, 1/3 of them were white victims.
          It wasn’t really random. It was people accused of crimes so heinous that the mobs were inflamed, and they acted violently, without due process.
          It’s like the Woke today, only they aren’t allowed to lynch. Yet.

          A young White man was lynched by Blacks a few weeks ago in Las Vegas.

          In terms of the Old South, a quarter of those lynched were White. It was the Justice System, be it ever so flawed.

          It all started when Southern Whites were being victimized by freed Blacks and laughed to scorn by the Occupying Government when they complained, both the Black politicians and the Northern Military. So if you want to blame, be fair about it.

          • RD3 December 11, 2023 at 1:58 pm #

            Most people, black and white, who were lynched, were guilty of a crime. Generally, it was for grave offenses that outraged the local community. Even if you choose to accept the SPLC’s inflated statistics, there were around 4,800 lynchings in the South from Reconstruction up through the 1960’s. So, less than 50 per year in a population of over 50 million. That’s a peaceful weekend in Chicago.

      It’s possible their enslavement and subsequent inequality may have contributed to their “marked proclivity for anti-social violence”.

        Israel removed the Palestinians in 1948 FIRST. (Then the Arabs “attacked” and were repulsed).

        Israel, with the UK and France, attacked Egypt in 1956.

        Israel attacked the Arabs in 1967 (and also the USS Liberty)

        In 1973, the Egyptians and Syria attacked Israel.

        Can you count the above?

        And that’s setting aside all the Israeli settlements in the occupied territories since 1967, which are an attack.

        • JohnAZ December 11, 2023 at 2:34 pm #

          Wow, another name caller that only has half of the story.

          To satisfy your curiosity, I was in the USN for six years and was actually in the Med when the 73 war started.

          Your data is wacko, it is long but here, for everyone is the real documented story. They are slightly paraphrased.

          From the office of the Historian, Department of State

          In 1948, fighting began with attacks from irregular bands of Palestinian Arabs attached to local units of the Arab Liberation Army comprised of volunteers from Palestine and neighboring Arab countries. These groups launched their attacks against Jewish cities settlements and armed forces. When Israel declared independence on May 14, 1948 under UN auspices, fighting intensified with other Arab forces joining in. On the 14th, Arabs launched an air attack on Tel Aviv. This action was followed by the invasion of the Jewish part of the mandate by Arab armies from Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Egypt.
          My words, Israel proceeded to kick their butts, the armistice of 1949 lasted until 1967.

          In 1956, Israel, France and UK invaded Egypt to stoop Nasser from nationalizing the Suez Canal, owned by shareholders of France and the UK. How come?
          Nasser wanted control of the Canal. The Suez Canal was built to allow Middle East oil to get to the Western Europeans without going around Africa. At that time, 2 million barrels of oil was going to Europe of which 1.2 million was going through the Canal. Per day!!!!

          Britannica

          In 1967, prior to the war, attacks against Israel by fledgling guerrilla groups that were based in Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan had increased, leading to costly Israeli reprisals. In Nov. 1966, Israel struck a village in Jordan in retaliation and in an air battle with Syria in April 1967, Israeli Air Force units shot down 6 Syrian MIGS.
          Egypts Nasser, under pressure, mobilized Egyptian forces in the Sinai and on May 22, closed the Gulf of Aqaba to Israeli shipping, isolated the port of Elat and the south side of Israel.On May 30, Hussein of Jordan signed a defense pact with Egypt, as did Iraq.
          In response, Israel destroyed the Egyptian and Syrian air forces then proceeded to drive the Egyptian army to he Suez Canal. The Jordanians shelled Jerusalem and the Israelis crushed them also , driving them out of the West Bank.
          A cease fire was called on June 7 and accepted by Israel and Jordan, then Egypt on the 8th. Syria refused and continued shelling Israeli villages in the north. Israel responded by driving them out of the Golan Heights on June 9th. Syria accepted the ceasefire the next day.

          Want to stop the disorder between the Arabs and Israel. My suggestion is quit messing with Israel, shooting rockets, shelling villages, and just trying to push the envelope with the Jews. No one is going to drive them into the sea.

          How come Arabs living in Israel, 20% of the population are much better off than the ones poking at Israel from the outside?

            Well of course, the US Department of State is going to present the facts that fit the narrative. Either that, or your clip of the Dept of State account leaves out the facts that the Stern Gang and Irgun did, in fact, employ violence and terror against the Palestinians to force them to leave.

            Also unsaid is the degree of Western and US aid the Israelis enjoyed.

            In fact, the US has always made sure that Israel has a military advantage over the Arabs.

            In 1948, this enabled Israel to keep not just area in the UN Partition Plan, but to grab more.

            Certainly, as a staunch ally of Israel and (probably a dedicated follower of Fox News), you’re not going to ignore the account of an Israeli hero (one of MANHY such accounts from Israeli officials by the way):

            “Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you because geography books no longer exist. Not only do the books not exist, the Arab villages are not there either. Nahlal arose in the place of Mahlul; Kibbutz Gvat in the place of Jibta; Kibbutz Sarid in the place of Huneifis; and Kefar Yehushua in the place of Tal al-Shuman. There is not a single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population.” Moshe Dayan, address to the Technion, Haifa, reported in Haaretz, April 4, 1969.

            1956. So, it appears you concede my point: Israel, the UK, and France invaded Egypt.

            And what happened after that. How did AMERICAN President Eisenhower react? How does the story end?

            In short, he told the aggressor nations to knock it off and leave, the US would not support them. And they did as he said!

            Ike was not going to risk WW3 for naked aggression.

            Here is another one of your heroes:

            “I vow that if I was just an Israeli civilian and I met a Palestinian I would burn him and I would make him suffer before killing him. With one hit I’ve killed 750 Palestinians (in Rafah in 1956). I wanted to encourage my soldiers by raping Arabic girls as the Palestinian women is a slave for Jews, and we do whatever we want to her and nobody tells us what we shall do but we tell others what they shall do.” Ariel Sharon, In an interview with General Ouze Merham, 1956.

            In 1967, the “6 Day War” ran from Jun 05 to Jun 10. Israel struck first–nothing in your account refutes that.

            And (presumably) to keep the element of surprise, the IDF shot up the USS Liberty, killing 32 of your fellow sailors.

            Perhaps if you had been on the Liberty that day, and were among the 150-plus wounded survivors, maybe if you lost a leg, your views might be less like Sean Hannity, and more like a good American conservative, like Ron Paul. Maybe you’ve heard of him.

            At least you spent time in the military, so I can’t label you an armchair warrior, like Cheney or Clinton.

            As far as the Suez Canal, your Israeli friends sunk some Egyptian ships in 1967, rendering it useless for several years.

            I did acknowledge that Egypt and Syria launched a surprise attack in 1973.

            We will never know if Israel might have been able to repulse it by itself, since the US went all out to resupply Israel and make sure it “won”. And it did–the Israelis surrounded some Egyptian Army and had the upper hand militarily.

            @OG here is my “history lesson”

            In 1979, thanks to the US taxpayer’s generosity (and the Federal Reserve printing press), Carter brokered “peace” between Egypt and Israel.

            “Peace” meant that the US began giving Egypt hundreds of millions in aid (and also converting them from Soviet weapons to US weapons over time),and giving Israel even MORE billions in aid.

            In return for all this, Begin (a terrorist himself, member of Irgun) and Sadat (a dictator himself), shook hands, and Israel gave Sinai back to Egypt.

            This removed Israel’s biggest adversary from the equation.

            Shortly after that, with Egypt “bought and paid for”, Israel began ramping up the colonization of the Palestinian territories it occupied in 1967. And it has been accelerating the colonization every since, creating an apartheid regime in the West Bank.

            As for Gaza, it has been basically blockaded since Israel “officially left” in 2006 or 2007.

            These actions are deliberate–both at face value, designed to take over the West Bank, and also to create so much pain, anger, and resentment as to make any kind of peace impossible.

            This is all very bad. But what is really bad is that the US is broke, and yet has found hundreds of billions to subsidize and enable Israel.

            Anyway, if we all live long enough and society does not implode, we will see a lot of bad things. The Israeli treatment of the Palestinians is among them.

            Now, @OG, you tell us:

            If the Israelis succeed in removing the Palestinians from Gaza and the West Bank, what’s next?

            What is “Greater Israel”? Is it the area between the “River (Jordan) and the Sea (Med)”? Or, is it the area between “the SEA (Red) and the RIVER (Tigris-Euphrates)”?

            How much is enough?

            Since some of you are eager to “relocate the Palestinians”, then, by the same token, why not relocate all the Israelis?

            Put them in Bavaria? Or pick a nicer part of Germany–after all, it was the Germans who carried out the Holocaust, not the Palestinians.

            Or better yet, relocate “western Poland”. This area was Silesia and German before the 1939. During 1945, the Germans were expelled by the Soviets (several MILLIONs of them, BTW), and this area was given to Poland.

            Simply because it ain’t gonna happen.

            Iran will be an ashtray before it will happen.

            The Palis will be in Madagascar before it happens.

            Europe will be a Muslim Caliphate before it happens.

            Oil will run out in Saudi Arabia before it happens.

            IOW, don’t lose sleep over it, it is not going to happen.

            @JohnAZ

            I don’t know what IOW is, but it looks like we agree on something!

            The Israelis are not going to relocate to Silesia. They are not leaving Palestine. And the “Palis” are not going take over Palestine.

            The rest of your stuff…. I don’t think so.

            (you overlook the possibility of the Mexicans taking over the US southwest–a long shot, but possible).

            The Palestinians won’t go to Madagascar. However, I want the US to take as many as possible, take them all, relocate a lot of them to Arizona (because they’re used to hot dry climates) in your neighborhood, and to upstate New York.

            With such great new neighbors in America, it will be win/win for Israelis and the Palestinians!

            I have already had some experience dealing with Palestinians here in the US.
            They have universally been involved in every scam, give away and government program they could get their hands on.
            They make white power types look woke and positively loving towards Asians, Blacks and Jews.
            They are NOT wanted we don’t need anymore people like that in this country we have our hands full with OTM types like 1/4 of Haiti and half of South and Central America.

            They can wander back on over to Jordan or some other cesspool middle eastern country.

    What woke is, is traumatized and broken people who are lonely, being taken advantage of by corporate and ideological think tanks.
    They aren’t bad people (even when the hail Satan and pretend that they like killing babies) they are lost souls. I think the remedy is truth, and speaking truth.

    Dmitry Orlov often mentions a “Jewish autonomous region” in Russia just waiting to take all the Jewish people from Israel.
    Seems to good to be true. Definitely where they have been artificially plopped down on Palestine (by god. No, by the Britts) anyone can see that will never work.

      Stalin gave them their own state in Siberia. Southern, with a climate like southern Canada. Don’t know if the land was good or not.

      They weren’t interested at all. They wanted Palestine even though offered Madagascar. They have sown the wind and will reap the whirlwind.

    Jim tosses an impressive word salad, but is misguided when he writes “This subversive Party of Chaos (with Marxist characteristics). The simplest definition of fascism is government by corporations, and it is not a far stretch to c all the U.S. a Corporatocracy. Both parties have fully cooperated as mega-corporations write one enormous bill after another to be rubber-stamped our rammed through in the dead of night(like the Fed enabling Act)(the 2500 page “Affordable Care Act,” much too long to be read out as required by law(!) as one example, and the relentless drive for more and more mandatory RNA vaccines(being the cheapest technology and thus offering the biggest buck) another. And when it comes to bankers, the goal is similarly profit-driven: An all digital Central Bank Digital Currency with no escape to enable NIRP with no recourse plus a VISA-like nip out of each transaction and a host of extra charges that would even. are your phone bill blush. And then maintain an iron grip on the MSM. Beginning to feel like a Palestinian, yet?

    • JohnAZ December 11, 2023 at 12:03 pm #

      A wonderful synopsis. Fascism insists though that all corporate activity be for the State. Corporations under Hitler DID NOT go overseas to get cheap labor. They built weapons for the State.

      Corporatocracy,, crony capitalism, the downfall of America,

      • Jarek December 11, 2023 at 1:58 pm #

        No, America is a Plutocracy where the Corporations and Banks give orders to the State – which then keeps order on the lower tiers of the Pyramid.

        Fascism is the State over the Corporations and Banks. International Banks are kicked out or watched very carefully.

        • JohnAZ December 11, 2023 at 2:46 pm #

          No, the MIC of the government gives orders to the corporations. All aspects of this Deep State run this country, even pushing the corporations off shore with exorbitant tax rates.

          One of the treated lies of the Democratic Party is that taxing the rich and the corporations is the key to success. Nothing like destroying the machine that makes the whole thing go.

          We are already keeping the IMF alive with the illicit economy crossing our southern border, how many more wealth generators are we going to hamstring.

          Oh yeah, the UK and our illustrious Indian, Elizabeth Warren want to not only tax income but wealth, that should put the finishing touches on the reset.

      “Jim tosses an impressive word salad'”

      Nicely put. But JHK’s credibility is, to my mind, severely damaged if not incinerated by his continuing, strident insistence that the 2020 election was ‘stollen’ (as Trump has tweeted it several times).

      Now that it’s ‘his people’ that are under attack from various quarters, it’s fascinating to observe how happily he will contort his thinking to fit his chosen narrative.

      • JohnAZ December 11, 2023 at 7:07 pm #

        One comment on that.

        You do not know whether the election was stolen or not. Many, many affidavits from election workers were just simply ignored by our biased judicial system, were not even looked at, and now the lawyers that were involved are being indicted for defending the proposition that the election was tainted. I happen to think it was stolen by the same mechanisms that perturbed the 2022 election, the mail-in ballot and its ability to be falsified by stuffing invalid ballots. It has never been proved that it happened, but just as bad that it did not happen.

        Just like Red Robin Hood and the wolf,

        Just trust me Baby!

        • RUfuckinKidding? December 11, 2023 at 9:50 pm #

          JohnAZ

          Yes. I do know that it was not stolen. The ‘biased judicial system’ included at least 30 Trump-appointed judges who threw the cases out because no EVIDENCE was provided.

          What ‘perturbed’ the 2022 election was the ridiculously strident GOP rhetoric following the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

          You numbskull GOP fanatics simply don’t see that the majority of the population just doesn’t agree with your tight, white, stale, male bullshit.

        • RUfuckinKidding? December 11, 2023 at 9:55 pm #

          “It has never been proved that it happened, but just as bad that it did not happen.

          …and how do you prove a negative, JohnAZ?

          This has to be one of the most stupid things you’ve EVER posted and that’s really saying something.

          Riddle me that, numbnuts. If it DID happen, it must be provable, right? So, where’s the proof? Oh…as Guiliani said “We have lots of theories but we’re still looking for the proof”.

          But alas, like Comer’s case against Biden, there’s nothing there. Result? An abject failure for which the poor victimized JohnAZs of this world blame ANYBODY else.

            RUfuckingkiddingme is a good name for you.
            The Supreme Court said it wouldn’t hear Texas’s and Cruz’s re: Pennsylvania shenanigans case due to “lack of standing” (bullshit, everyone has a stake in the stolen election) NOT lack of evidence.

            Your response is just one more attempt to silence legitimate questions.

            We here have been over this ..
            I don’t recall who said it but they were spot on…
            ““Covid-19 also happened to be a convenient device for ridding the government of the troublesome President Trump, who threatened to disassemble major parts of the permanent US bureaucracy. If you revisit the many videos of Mr. Trump appearing in the White House Covid crisis room in early 2020 with Dr. Fauci, Dr. Deborah Birx, and other public health officials, I’m sure you will notice his discomfort, as if he suspected he was being played (he was). And conveniently, right after that, the locked-down public’s attention was galvanized by the George Floyd, BLM, and Antifa riots until the 2020 election was upon us. (Another grotesque prank against the people, never adjudicated by the courts who only said the plaintiffs lacked standing, having been intimidated by the riots and lawfare.”

            So in your haste to depose bad O.M., Democrats played the hand China dealt them for all it was worth. China, too, wanted to get rid of Trump for the tariffs and his legitimate challenge to their predatory practices.

            How does it feel to be in cahoots with the Chicoms? Slimy? I would feel slimy, but your conscience is no doubt seared by repeated lies.

            Crudgemudgeon – whaaaa…? It’s quite incredible just how fucking stupid you are. You are saying that 59 of 60 judges were ALL in cahoots with these purported ‘election riggers’?

            The only case that was not accepted for ‘lack of standing’ was the SC one (IIRC).

            All the other cases were seen to be simply assertions & affidavits (many unsigned and unnamed) and there was no actual PROOF. You should read a couple of the court’s decisions. An affidavit from someone wearing a MAGA hat is always going to be considered unreliable – why? Because Trump’s an established liar, so his worshipping cultist followers are probably just as bad and will do and say anything if it appears to help his cause.

            “Lawsuit seeking de-certification of Arizona results, litigated by Sidney Powell. The judge ruled that the plaintiffs lacked legal standing; their fraud allegations were vague and implausible, and their evidence was unreliable or irrelevant. Appealed to the Ninth circuit, appeal dismissed.

            wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-election_lawsuits_related_to_the_2020_United_States_presidential_election_from_Arizona

            Remember Guiliani’s assertion about the thumb drives? You know, the ones that turned out to be ginger mints?

            Remember just the other day that some numbnuts GOP congressman accused a vaper of carrying and flashing his FBI ID in the Capitol (as seen on TV!)?

            Homogeneous societies do not waste their time with warring ethnic groups.

            Europe and its nationalism shows how poorly multi-ethnicity works, the Eu is about to be opted out of by many of it ethnicities also known as countries.

            Blacks do not compete well in the US. If there were no sports, it would be much worse. Whites do not compete well with Asians as evidenced in California.

            Frenchmen or Germans compete well within their countries, or have until the Muslim African subculture was brought in.

    • Anthea December 12, 2023 at 9:39 am #

      @ RD3:

      I think you’re right. If you think about, it seems clear (at least to me) that segregation is the most humane solution to the problems created by blacks within the larger white society.

      Blacks have demonstrated a disproportionate habit of violence and criminality. There are two possible solutions: put a very large percentage of the black population in jail and keep them there for a long time, or segregation. That is, simply do not allow them to mix with whites. This worked in the South–and also in the North–during the pre-civil-rights era.

      Some people would argue that we could solve the problem of black violence and crime by prosecuting them and putting them in jail. But if you look at our major cities and ask yourself why this is not being done, I think the answer is simple: the cities, counties, and states simply can’t afford to. They can’t pay the costs of that large of a prison population. My guess is that about a fourth of the black population would have to be in jail at any given time, to get black crime and violence kinda/sorta under control. Even that wouldn’t do much good, if you couldn’t keep them there.

      Segregation was the South’s way of dealing with the black problem economically.

      This also solved the problem of offensive black social behavior. White society didn’t have to be confronted with pants-around-the-knees guys, loud vulgar talk, public urination, etc.–with the result of that kind of behavior becoming normalized.

  24. RD3 December 11, 2023 at 12:03 pm #

    I distinctly recall listening to a speech given by Ross Barnett during the “civil rights” era where he stated emphatically that if integration happened, the middle and lower class whites would lose their culture and would adopt all of the social ills that plagued blacks.

            @ cowbell81:

            The Walmart in my very rural area went through a phase where they piped in what were supposed to sound like shoppers’ conversations. They were very realistic, so that, at first, you thought there was a group of people in the next aisle talking loudly. These were always fake conversations between blacks, talking a lot of jive.

            This Walmart is not lily white. One does (rarely) see a black shopper. They also hired quite a few black stockers and at least one black checker around that time. Since then, they all seem to have disappeared.

            Also, during that same time period, quite a few black shoppers were in evidence around the store. It was as if they had imported them and were paying them to just hang around and talk loudly on their cell phones.

            I had the impression that Walmart decided we needed to be culturally enriched, there for awhile.

          I would say that like everything with drugs, the Mexicans, MS13 and other cartel folks are not real welcome in the Black areas in the major cities. Could it be that part of the “racial problem” right now is friction between the gangs?

      We are told that the culture of violence in the ghettoes comes from the legacy of Jim Crow, but it seems a bit more recent to me.

        The problems in the black neighborhoods started worsening about the time of the Reagan administration, but I could never put my finger on what Reagan did that was of particular harm to blacks.

        I came to realize later that Reagan just happened to coincide with the beginnings of the globalist movement.

          Is it possible that their new found sympathy for Whites is because Whites are now the lowest of the low? Marxism is for scum and now that Whites are the most hated the ladies see them as possible comrades.

        Paula, if I am not mistaken, that video got the young guy starring in it in a mountain of trouble.

        It may have been the fact that he was on parole for some other improper act and shouldn’t have been handling those full-auto popguns.

        I didn’t follow up on it as I go out of my way to avoid rap and any style associated with it. Don’t care for the social / behavioral context / message.

    Treating all people with respect is a worthwhile goal, but it can go too far when certain groups are told that they are special victims and deserve more. Then you can have a man run over 65 people at a Christmas parade, and have the media tell you that a “red SUV” was the culprit, and then drop it right down the Memory Hole.

    My daughters were here over the weekend and one reminded me of when she was a kid, and didn’t want to play with the black kids next door, and I got upset because I didn’t want them to think we were racist, but she just didn’t like them.
    I was ashamed of being a bad mom, and muttered “I’m over that now”, but they are both Woke anyway, (That one less than the other one.)

    Same with feminism. I was over it already, but the pussy hatters and the Me Too pushed me over the edge.

    And then came the trannies, the Most Oppressed People Ever.

    What happens when the Cancel Culture runs out of targets? Every statue, every baseball and football team, the landscape wiped clean. (hypothetical question and maybe a tad naive)

    • cowbell81 December 11, 2023 at 12:50 pm #

      That is a good and interesting hypothetical question. My thought is that once they run out of targets maybe that is when the system finally implodes on itself? In other words, they will become the target of themselves. Much like when we run out of fuel oil, the world will right itself and people to return back to basic priorities like food, shelter, and supplying for their families.

    One of the peculiar aspects of American society is how, when, and where people are defined or accepted as “white.” White People are generally considered to run the show, for good or ill. As such, they are viewed as all-purpose oppressors who must be laid low by Social Justice Warriors.

    White Anglo-Saxon Protestants get the nod by default, particularly males. Whiteness for the Irish, Italians, Catholics in general, and the Jews is less clear. Increasingly suburban moms and LGBT folks want to run off White Island. The fusion of victimhood and privilege runs rampant across the political landscape. But, in Woke America, it’s time to choose a side.

    With the latest outbreak of violence between Israel and Hamas, the Woke elite removed the right to identify from the Jews. The Ivy League unceremoniously shoved the tribe into the Mighty Whitey oppressor bucket. They are now pariahs cast down to the depths of the unclean MAGA Deplorables.

    Personally, I believe this is a clear indicator of Woke Dragon transforming into the Woke Ouroboros. Now, the beast begins to devour itself in earnest.

    The latest controversy won’t change a thing. The Jewish vote will remain solidly Democratic. The worst antisemites, who are most energetic and passionate in attacking Israel are often Jewish, see, e.g. Bernie Sander, Jon Stewart etc. Jewish folks form and participate in antisemitic hate groups, especially on college campuses, groups called Jewish Voice for Peace, IfNotNow, Code Pink, and similar organizations. The Democrats know they can constantly insult various groups they rely upon–blacks, jews, gays etc.–and still get their vote. So none of the latest dust-up really matters.

        Netanyahu claims entire world is “antisemitic” in UNHINGED rant about Hamas attack

        naturalnews.com/2023-12-11-netanyahu-calls-entire-world-antisemitic-hamas-rant.html

        If you do not believe everything the Israeli government is claiming about the Oct. 7 Hamas false flag attack, even if there is no actual evidence to support Israel’s claims, then you are “antisemitic,” according to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

        In an unhinged rant aimed at the international community that is speaking up about Israel’s atrocities in Gaza, Netanyahu blasted the entire unbelieving world for remaining “silent” about unsubstantiated claims that Hamas soldiers raped and sexually mutilated Israeli women during the attack.

        The world is asking Israel to provide proof, but in typical #MeToo form, Netanyahu wants the world to just believe, even without evidence, whatever Israel says is true about what took place that day.

        “In other moments of exasperation, he would note that ‘Any people who have been persecuted for two thousand years must be doing something wrong’.'”

      Tikkun Olam is repair of the World. Some Jews don’t realize that that means destroying that which is build on bad foundations – like Western Civilization. The same Jews don’t realize that not all races are equal and feel shame about not being able to help the Blacks. The latter is what Mr Kunstler referred to.

      In any case, other Jews are entirely comfortable with the destructive aspect of Tikkun Olam and enjoy the process. Blacks are invaluable tools in this needless to say. They have no more illusions about them than Free Whites do.

I have been a fan of his for a long time now, ever since he did a stint as Lord Whimsey and wrote about his life in the pine barrens of New Jersey. He is an amazing ole time character. His book on Walt Whitman is not to be overlooked.

Just tell em you ain’t the boss of me. Just imagine how they would be destroyed if everybody decided not to spend any money for Christmas.

    Somewhat fancifully 20 years ago I calculated the cost of moving Israel to my home state of Alabama. Israel was 6,500 sq. miles and AL is 48,000. I proposed the land between I-59 from Tuscaloosa and I-65 to Montgomery with Pascagoula as the port and Mobile remaining in AL and Biloxi remaining in MS.
    Buying 3.84 million acres at $10,000/acre is $30.8 billion. I considered that high, land in that part of the state wasn’t even $5,000/acre. About 500,000 people live in this area so we would pay them $100,000 to move (and of course for their land if they owned any). That would be $50 billion. The rich Arab countries would buy Israeli’s land who wanted to sell and move. They could gift or sell it back to the Palestinians. The new Palestine would permit Jewish tourists by treaty to visit their sacred places. Israel had about 5 million people with about 1/2 of them Jewish so 2.5 million people would need relocation expenses.

    We could call the project reformed Zionism.

    I figured this deal could be done for less than $250 billion. And now to “solve’ this Mideast conundrum (which is no solution at all) would require $50 billion for Israel and $65 billion for Ukraine.
    Israel in Alabama/Mississippi gives the new settlers some pretty good land to work with, it all has water (which the Negev desert doesn’t) and their new Southern neighbors would appreciate the dynamism brought to the area.
    Naturally, the land I’m offering actually belongs to the indigenous Creek, Chickasaw, and Choctaw tribes but they are running the only allowed casinos and gambling in Alabama so maybe they’d be cool with it……

      That is an interesting thought experiment, and just think of all the added revenue the newly relocated Jewish population would bring to the Indian casino. $250b is a drop in the bucket when all the other costs are factored in regarding military engagements, lives lost, etc. And you are right, most of that land would be very productive for farming and business enterprises.

      A few summers ago I swung through Selma. I was absolutely blown away at how run down it was, being right on the river with many nice old buildings. So much lost potential there.

        We may never know if Joan Rivers was serious. The whole comment would have been quickly forgotten if Joan had not died unexpectedly from simple surgery shortly thereafter.

        By the way, the cable TV series “The Marvelous Mrs Maisel” is loosely based on the life and career of Joan Rivers. Well worth watching.

          She was something. A real pioneer.

          I think her doctor just didn’t want to inconvenience a star patient and very busy woman, so he went ahead with procedures that she wasn’t in good enough health to have at that time.

    “…and Israel decided to bring down the wrath of Yaweh to remind the world what never again means.”

    Is there something about the terror of military power that has an ironic linkage to a positively functioning creed in all cultures, made up of different types of Nos and Yesses.

    Can we be a successful culture and society without the absolute authority of a sacred center? Must there always be a fear of punishment?

    Is to live without holy terror to become a terror oneself?

    I guess were are all in the process of finding out.

    “… You know what a fifth column is?… it is a subversive enemy force operating inside a nation to sabotage its interests.”

    Is this the new Wikipedia answer for “What Is Government?” ‘Subversive enemy force’ with respect to We the People? Or are We the People just too dumb to realize that ‘They’ always know what’s best for us and we are just too stupid to understand that!? (Pause a moment for the thunderous laughter to settle down…).

    “… ‘Joe Biden’ the fictitious ‘president’ euchered in plain sight to that position via flagrant chicanery …”

    A fictitious President (‘Resident’) to preside over a Nation with fictitious national borders (?) powered by fictitious ‘money’ and informed by a fictitious State news media? Populated by people with a fictitious sexuality? Isn’t that at least being consistent?

    “My people, the Jews, including a major chunk of the intellectual class, assumed leadership in the Woke crusade because the Holocaust of the 1940s established us as the world’s premier oppressed victim group.”

    The Non-Woke crowd is just damned sick of this whole Victim Industrial Complex and the sorry attitude that this springs out from.
    And many folks are not too pleased with that ‘Premiere Oppressed Group’ because it has become tiresome and played-out. One can be hit over the head with the same stick over and over until you are just sick of that stick… and the person hitting you with it.

    This is not to minimize horrors done to that group. But lots of other groups have had greatly horrible things done to them throughout history and no one is shedding any tears for them. And such groups have little to no representation in the Leadership Class because they are just not of the right… ‘type’. One must be of certain historical lineage or of Darkened Skin Tones! to have any standing in today’s Woke Modern World of society, business, government, and media.

    The Banking Class… High political positions… Hollywood and all Media in general… are all dominated by a certain group of people. And today on television and media in general… there is a certain color of skin tone that is repeating itself with great frequency. Is this for some cosmic act of ‘fairness’? Evening the ‘score’? Getting ‘Theirs!’. Or is this to further alienate much of We the People and create greater levels of social chaos to benefit… WHO? Gee, wonder what Hidden Hands THAT might be? Would ‘They’ do that to us? Would They do such a thing? Why… NO!!! Of course not! That would be acting like – uh – a Subversive Enemy Force? How does that further the sacred quest of Extreme Wokeness?

    This was a damned refreshing take today and offering from Our Host. My sincere compliments on his boldness and lack of fear of retribution from his fellow Group members… and the Great Woke Army out there always at the read to destroy someone for the slightest slight. Or expressing an opinion that does not fully align 100 percent with their own deluded thoughts and feelings.

    Most sane people agree that discrimination against a group of people for their background or skin tone is wrong. But even worse is when those differences are deiberately and purposefully used to take a wrecking ball to Western Culture and civility and to demonize a new forgotten and demonized people – The Light Skin Tone Folks!

    Face it. The World really and honestly never wants to get over Racism. We just substitute different groups from time to time as to who the Favored Ones are – and who the new devils are.

    And this time around – we have new Bosses and new drivers … and a new group of folks riding The Back of the Bus… if they are even allowed to get on the bus at all.

    Light-Skinned Toned Folks that are not part of the Premiere Oppressed Group. A new Ghetto People for a New Woke Age.

    Better roll up those car windows when around them!

      I agree, Bertl. This outrage looks a bit too orchestrated.

      It reminds me of the pussy hatters, or the covid hysteria, or the anti-gun rallies nation-wide a month after Parkland. These things don’t rise organically.

      And why the outrage over just Gaza? If you hate Israelis, note that they are also bombing Syria and Lebanon, and killing Palis in the West Bank.

      But the Outrage Machine ignores that.

      There has to be a reason that people are being so focused on Gaza, imo, and it isn’t because they have suddenly developed consciences. Most of them are the same ones who jumped on the other bandwagons, although there are some who didn’t.

    CNN et al want to make sure everyone gets the message:

    ‘New Jersey man filmed shouting racial slurs at neighbors in viral video sentenced to 8 years in prison.’

    A New Jersey man was sentenced to eight years in prison after being caught on camera “harassing and using racial slurs against several of his neighbors,” according to a press release from the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office.

    Edward C. Mathews was sentenced Friday after a police investigation that began in 2021 revealed “a pattern of abuse from Mathews against his neighbors that included leaving a threatening note on one of their vehicles,” the prosecutor’s office said.

    Police began the investigation into the 47-year-old after law enforcement found him “using racial slurs while engaged in a verbal altercation with four residents,” the release said.

    Mathews was captured on a neighbor’s doorbell camera in July 2021 thrusting his hips in a lewd motion while laughing and looking at the camera. He is also heard saying “f***ng monkey.”

    The neighbor is a Black woman who is on the homeowner’s association board (HOA) and told police Mathews called her racial slurs over the past few months, according to an affidavit.

    Mathews begged for leniency during his sentencing hearing, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. He said he accepted responsibility and apologized to the victims for “my insensitive and disrespectful words in the past,” the Inquirer reported.

    He must spend at least four years in prison before he is eligible for parole, the judge ruled, according to Joel Bewley, public information officer for the Burlington County Prosecutors office.

    “Our office is committed to combatting bias crimes and sending a clear message that such actions will not be tolerated in our community,” Burlington County Prosecutor Bradshaw said in a statement. “Nobody should have to endure what these victims experienced.”

    TS
    Currently the latest ‘out’ group are whites who object to the Obama clan’s replacement program and to the biased elevation of blacks all across the media. Blacks are now most definitely the ‘in’ group, with one George Floyd falsely representing a holocaust against not the Jews, but the jigs.

    On the local news last week, 14,000 illegals one week and 17,000 in another in the Tucson sector alone, this in just the past few weeks. The ‘in’ group is swarming in and the ‘out’ group seems content to be run over and pushed further and further out.

        TS, Of course the resident whites should gracefully accept being turfed out of their houses so that migrants can move in—after possibly shooting them and raping the women to help speed the owners on their way. This is the Reconquista, doncha know!!

        The original property owners definitely should learn to “behave better” when incarcerated in refugee camps and open-air prisons. Their main concerns should not be obtaining water and food for their children, but minding their manners and “behaving well” so as not to annoy their migrant betters.

    Those “Never Again” words are used by Hamas and all the Palestinians. That is why they are fighting their way out of an Open Air Prison after serving 75 years at Hard Labor. Even the West Bank Palestinians are saying Never Again. It must be a trend.

    For months I have been writing to my Elected Representatives DEMANDING a re-opening of the Nuremburg War Crimes Tribunal so that ALL SIDES ~ certainly the Israeli’s, Hamas and the Biden Administration ~ be brought before the court. I see the Israeli press is reporting that the Israeli Government has seized on MY idea ~ but only to prosecute HAMAS in the Nuremburg style. Hamas isn’t the only group committing Crimes Against Humanity even now, as I write.

    We already know this war won’t stop until there’s nothing left to fight with and no one left to fight. Who among us would say “stop this now and let’s keep things as they are ??” Certainly not me. Certainly not the Palestinians nor the Syrians nor the Iraqis nor the Cubans nor the Russians nor the Ukrainians, etc. etc. Even though I’m opposed to war ~ things can NOT stay as they are. This situation is just too f**ked up. Everyone is saying Never Again.

      It’s over when empire ends; the last act determined by the fate of the dollar.

      When that day occurs, the various imperial outposts like Japan, Germany and of course Israel will be like GB when the Romans boarded their boats and sailed back across the channel.

      Once again, it’s about the fight to control the effects of population overshoot, resource depletion and environmental degradation.

      Critical lynchpins like Ukraine and Palestine control acces to the last great stores that posses necessary surplus to maintain the for profit private money system aka US dollar.

      The war aims of the Russa-China alliance is to avoid direct NATO military confrontation while pursuing the end of dollar hegemony.

      One doesn’t have to be emotionally invested to understand the conflict. Rather, it’s merely an exercise in logic by simply analyzing the actual facts of the matter.

        On the dollar collapse. The UAE has recently announced that it will not accept dollars in payment for oil. That’s a significant step beyond accepting multiple, non-dollar currencies. If other OPEC nations follow suit (and they’re all lining up with the BRICS), it’s goodbye reserve currency status.

        If oil exporting nations refuse to take the dollar, what good is it? Since the USA runs a trillion dollar per annum trade deficit, we will be the ones in search of some kind of money to pay for imports.

            That whole impeachment thing, in the summer of 2019, was predicated on Biden being the “front runner”, so asking about his criminal son was supposedly politically based, and therefore out of bound. (SO ironic, as we watch them go after Trump with multiple bullshit charges.)

          You’re a smart person but your Jew hate blinds you to the reality the Palestinians are one of two sides that are not wholesome and good.

            I may have delved into Judaism more than any goy should. Here’s one small example.

            The rabbi’s teach that a man who commits the most horrendous acts, then sincerely repents, is holier than the man who never sinned.

            Watching Larry David’s sitcom “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, I noticed he goes out of his way to insult and offend people. When they react, he profusely apologizes, grovels and practically licks their boots in contrition.

            This makes little sense to me. And probably to you. Via his Jewish subconscious programming, Larry wants to be the forgiven sinner, holier and more exalted than those who practice good manners.

      The problem with dead people (zombies) is they don’t realize they are dead.

      In other words, some are so deeply saturated in their mental prison that they lack the ability to critically evaluate the essential question as to whether they are actually members of a cult

      As an aside, one so pernicious that it strictly enforces rigid group think and threats of ostracization (eg “self hating Jew”) from any deviance from the party line.

      This control is especially effective on the less aware to the point where we see the type of simplistic question above, as if such a reductionist construction is not only profound, but impressively stated.

      Meanwhile, others may cast their eyes down at such an embarrassing and shameful beclowning.

          – there are only around 1b people contained in the ‘golden billion’, including jews

          – that means you, along with everyone else in this club, enjoys a special privilege bestowed by being a citizen of empire

          – the other 7b, including billions of Chinese, Indians, Africans and S Americans couldn’t possibly give a shit about your perceived special victim status

          – there are no momuments in Japan nor Germany honoring the 20s of millions of Chinese & Slavs killed during their respective reigns of fascist terror, dwarfing your group’s elevated victim scorecard by orders of magnitude

          – the final insult is your misguided belief that you possess some kind of moral authority, when in actuality youre just another sell out engaged to do the dirty work of empire

          – here’s some free advice – this goes for Jim as well – go for a walk and think about why you were raised with the beliefs that were instilled in you. If they didn’t exist, how would you view the world?

          This the trick many intellectual jews have employed that enables them to logically separate zionism from judiasm.

            “Jewish-Illuminati-Capstone-Globalist-Satanist-Great Reset” dogmatic theorizing, which is so stupidly popular, is 99% superstitious and, to borrow a favorite word of Amman’s, peasant garbage.

            @ mitchellc:

            I think that’s very well said.

            One thing you start to notice when you get old is that the Jewish victimhood status has been the subject of endless propaganda for your whole life: the holocaust movies and TV shows, the assorted movies glorifying the Jews in ancient times, followed by Exodus, both the book and the movie, and the fact that The Diary of Anne Frank is deemed essential reading in the public schools.

            Many other groups of people have suffered greater persecution, and sometimes genocide. Nobody seems to feel like they owe the Irish any special consideration or deference.

            And the “moral authority” thing is a particularly great insult.

            Gus: To deny conspiracy is to be a modern peasant on the cubicle farm. Our ancestors were very much into Conspiracy theory and far stronger than we were. When Adams and Jefferson learned that the deadly Grand Orient Masonry had begun to infiltrate American lodges, they took immediate action to stamp it out. That kind of Masonry helped to organize the French Revolution. The second Revolution is always the Kill shot. People like Thomas Paine immediately started advocating about overthrowing the new United States.

            Anthea: The Irish are so beaten down that many of them don’t even want to exist. Their attempt to switch to their own language was mocked by the Irish Elite themselves (secret Marxists and now overt Globalists). Say what you will about the Jews, but they did what the Irish could not. Their victim complex unites them. They cultivate it assiduously. Uncle Abe above doesn’t even see it – even when Mr Kunstler admitted its existence.

            And it goes hand in glove with the idea/feeling of being Chosen. That gives them the strength to say fuck you to the world and do all kinds of unpleasant things. We used to be like that. The Puritans saw themselves as the new Israel. Other denominations may not have said that, but felt it anyway. The pre-Novus Ordo Catholic Church said it, though it didn’t emphasize it. It certainly didn’t view the Jews as Chosen any longer.

            In any case, no one was going to let some raggedy stone age people get in the way of our destiny on this continent.

            Gus, your tiny little GLT is showing.

            ***
            Gus can believe both that 10,000 innocent American souls were trapped in FBI grad, Vegas Turkey-Shoot Incident Commander [whatever the flip that is!], Maui PD Chief/Coroner John Pelletier’s murderous road-block barricades … but only 100 of them died.

            Yes, Gus is a moron. Gus believes that two aluminum airliners brought down three Manhattan skyscrapers one Tuesday. Yes, Gus believes that 2=3 because his government told him so.

            Gus is a sheep. Sad but true.

            “To deny conspiracy is to be a modern peasant on the cubicle farm. Our ancestors were very much into Conspiracy theory and far stronger than we were.”

            The founding farthers were also quite superstitious, and, in my view, not particularly strong in any way or good at founding things. They were the cubicle-peasants of their day, unable to think outside the boxes of their masters. Their rebellion was emulation. They’re low on my ranked list of “ancestors.”

            The real conspiracy of our time is the simple, cynical capitalist one, where those who can, ride the backs of the serfs and guzzle everything available.

            To think there’s an impending threat of a techno-globalist neo-feudalism is to be blind to the present. That is exactly what is in full operation right now… has been for at least several centuries.

          • OG December 12, 2023 at 7:37 pm #

            To accept that 2=3 makes you a mouse rather than a man, Gus. Same with agreeing that 10,000 were trapped but only 100 died. A mouse clinging to his psychological blanky.

            You spend your time weighing whether you can accept that a conspiracy is behind a major event rather than examining the evidence that a conspiracy is, indeed, behind the major event.

            ***
            Using your logic, the Wright Brothers never would have flown.

            That is, just because people had conspiracy theories in the past hardly makes 2=3. D’uh!

          “What I want is…” “…F— you, Mitch…”

          And who the hell are you?

          Why would I, or should I, or anyone else here, care what YOU want?

          And if I don’t comport with your request, I’m a coward… really?

          You must be very special! Why don’t tell us how and why?

          It’s the internet, you can make believe and say anything you want.

          Like most people here, I come to weigh in with my views. I generally use facts to support them.

          Whether I like or dislike Jews (though you’ve obviously determined I am “Jew-hater or Jew disliker”) or whether I like or dislike Arabs, facts are facts.

          If you don’t like my facts, several of which come from Israeli and Jewish sources, you’re free to offer facts to rebut them.

          If I’m factually incorrect, refute it and give us something factually correct.

          Apparently, you can’t offer facts, so you go for the “Jew hater”, to divert attention the facts of the matter and focus on me personally. Which is typical in the US today.

          Of course, it was also typical in the US for Negroes to be required to sit in the back of the bus once.

          Typical and right are not the same thing.

          Instead of trying to change the topic by smearing me, why don’t you comment to our host to put Gideon Levy on his radio show? After all, JHK is, or was, a contrarian. If he hosted “contrarian” Dmitry Orlov on his radio show, why not host Levy?

          If you are sincerely interested in the truth, you should google Gideon Levy and listen to what he has to say. Hopefully he is Jewish enough for you.

        @ mitchellc:

        Usually, I don’t agree with many of your perspectives–and, to tell you the truth, I think your analysis of beantownbill’s motives is in this case incorrect. To wit (excuse the pretentious expression):

        “This control is especially effective on the less aware to the point where we see the type of simplistic question above, as if such a reductionist construction is not only profound, but impressively stated.

        “Meanwhile, others may cast their eyes down at such an embarrassing and shameful beclowning.

        “Here’s the response: you’re not the center of the universe. The world does not revolve around your self promoted exalted status.”

        This was in response to beantownbill’s demand of SocratesDetroit, to wit:

        “So I ask you a direct question: Are you a Jew-hater or a Jew disliker?

        “What are your feelings toward Jews? Be honest now. If you are either, do you have the balls to admit it, or are you a coward? Please let us know.” (I can’t find SocratesDetroit’s comment.)

        My analysis of beantownbill’s questions is 1) It’s none of your damn business, 2) one’s likes/dislikes/hatreds are irrelevant to any issues under discussion, and 3) the questions are juvenile in the extreme. What this shows is a failure of the proper intellectual functions of reason and detachment–and an extraordinarily childish view that anyone at all is required to “like” you or even “not hate” you. Such a demand is infantile, and–as mitchellc observes–is indeed shameful.

    • Anthea December 12, 2023 at 11:08 am #

      @ beantownbill:

      You seem to be implying that, if a person dislikes or hates Jews, this is proof that they are wrong about, say, the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, because of improper partisanship.

      Yet, if you’re Jewish and likewise swayed by partisanship, this does not make you wrong.

    Zelensky is back in DC, meeting with Congress & the President, trying to drum up another $100 billion ‘for the cause.’ But the cause is dead and the war is already lost; it’d be more money (that we don’t have) poured down a rathole.

    • OG December 11, 2023 at 8:34 pm #

      The money is not “poured down a rathole.” Its economic impact is much better than that.

      Here’s how it goes:

      Zelensky begs for $116B
      Biden says, “Give it to him!”
      Congress says, “Done!”
      Treasury says to Fed, “We need another $116B.”
      Fed rubs its hands together and laughs maniacally.
      Fed says, “Done!”
      MIC says, “Over here!”
      Treasury says, “Done!”
      MIC sends its dwindling, ineffective, obsolete killing machines to Zelensky.
      MIC puts the $116B into US stock market

      Life is good. Right?

    • Paula D December 12, 2023 at 12:05 pm #

      Biden, Blinken and others have told the American people that 90% of the money allocated stays in the US, and provides “jobs” for American workers making WMD . Americans are supposed to be happy about enriching the Merchants of Death, in reward for working double shifts down at General Dynamics.

      Brian Berletic and Putin have both pointed out that you can’t shoot money out of missile launchers, even though we are told that
      Money = Instant Weapons.

      Not true. The US has already sent its old and outdated weapons to Ukraine. They have no intention of sending newer stuff.

      The $100 billion will go for contracts to the MIC, with 10% for the Big Guy, of course, and the weapons won’t be actually produced for years, if ever.

      Meanwhile, the US is forcing the Kiev regime to feed more and more people into the Donbass, where they are being killed by DPR militias, now part of the Russian military.

      Why is the Kiev regime complying?

      This is seeming more and more like deliberate depopulation.
      Those swooning over Gaza should take note of what actual depopulation looks like. Some estimates are that Ukraine is down to about 20 million, from 51 million before the USSR was destroyed in 1991.

      Blackrock, Cargill, Bayer/Monsanto don’t want any able-bodied Ukrainians able to stop their takeover of the rich black soil of Ukraine.

      So they force Zelensky to capture more and more Ukies off the streets, and send them to the meat grinder in the Donbass.

      This after 70% of Ukrainians voted for Zelensky’s 2019 campaign based on a peace platform, in which he pledged to stop killing the citizens of eastern Ukraine.
      And people in the Donbass weren’t allowed to vote (in that great post-coup democracy, so that was the rest of Ukraine voting for peace.)

      But what did they get instead? Depopulation and land theft.

    Netanyahu Says He Appreciates US Veto of UN Gaza Ceasefire Resolution

    news.antiwar.com/2023/12/10/netanyahu-says-he-appreciates-us-veto-of-un-gaza-ceasefire-resolution/

    The US is facing global backlash for being the only member of the UN Security Council to vote against the resolution

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday said he appreciated the US vetoing a UN Security Council resolution that called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and vowed to continue his war in the besieged enclave, which has killed at least 18,000 Palestinians.

    “Other countries must also understand that it’s impossible to support the elimination of Hamas on one side and on the other to call for the end of the war, which will prevent the elimination of Hamas,” Netanyahu said.

    “Therefore, Israel will continue our just war to eliminate Hamas and achieve the war’s other objectives that we set,” he added.

    I am told that I must support the USA vetoing the rest of the United Nations of Earth. Otherwise, I’d be an antisemite.

    Off Topic:

    I’m well aware this forum is not a personal diary, as some have said, but hey – there are no rules in life, so who the hell cares.

    My father died on Friday. He had just turned 76. Mild dizzy spells for a few months prior, then recently diagnosed with blockage in the carotid artery. After a few weeks of tests, they performed surgery to try to clear the blockage, which went well – for about six hours. Then he threw a clot from the surgery and suffered a significant stroke. An immediate second emergency surgery to try again was ultimately unsuccessful in clearing the blockage.

    My brother and I were able to spend five days with him and my mom at his bedside. He was responsive with his eyes and left side (he could hold and read cards, work a TV remote, etc), made direct eye contact and could nod and smile as we talked to him. He couldn’t speak, but he tried, and I could tell he was in there and knew what was happening and what we were saying.

    He suffered a second stroke on day six, and that did it. He then spent less than two days in hospice before he let go in his sleep. (Before anyone asks, yes, as far as I know he had all the jabs, though that’s inconsequential to me right now. Male strokes run in my family, and I can likely expect one in my future as well…hopefully not so early though.)

    I’ve been on auto-pilot for the last few weeks taking care of details for my mom, but now that what’s done is done, I’m just starting to process what this all means. I’m pretty pissed off at a variety of faceless entities, but mainly I’m just resigned and saddened that we will only ever have the past with him now.

    My dad was the funniest guy I ever knew. A bit of a mystery, too. But I’d venture to say that he did more to create memories for his wife and boys over the years than most can claim to have even attempted. He only had 6 ½ years to spend with my boy, but it’s clear the same impression was made on him.

    So…Peace out, pop. Got it from here…well, until it’s my time someday.

    And for what it’s worth, I could give two shits about world politics right now, so that’s a stress reliever in itself. Perspective has been shifted to what matters in daily life, and what he have/don’t have control of. If your parents are still alive, call them and say hello, and perhaps buy them a pint and have another laugh while you can.

    • Jarek December 11, 2023 at 9:32 pm #

      We all die alone. In the end, you may not be able to even see your family or know that it’s them. Or you may even want them to say their goodbyes and go so you can go in peace.

      And even if not, even if you’re holding hands, still your eyes will close or glaze and you will be gone. Alone? Or alone with the Alone?

      You have a relatively young family, so now is the best time to get even closer to them.

      She will need purpose.
      My bit of advice to you is not to close their bank accounts when she finally goes hopefully many years from now.
      When my wifes parents died almost exactly six months a part, we closed their bank account way to soon.
      He had a penchant for getting himself involved in every con artist scam or pyramid scheme.
      We had about 20k in checks come in over a period of about two years we could not do anything with.

    I thank you for your post and for reminding me that it’s okay to be personal at times. With that in mind, I’ll post the following little eulogy in remembrance of my sister who also died at the age of 76 six years ago. I may have done better, but this was done on the day I got the news.

    For Dorothy

    My sister left me from a lonely place
    Left me with the last of the family blood
    Flowing, lingering in my veins.

    She left me before I could show my love for her
    That love now forever sealed away
    With the sorrow of her loss.

    She left me feeling proud of her
    With warm memories of her kindness
    Making the best of her last years
    In a place she didn’t want to be

    My sister left me from a lonely place
    Left me with her forever in my heart,
    Her joyful and loving new home,
    Her blood flowing, singing in my veins.

    ************

    Uh oh, it looks like another war might be kicking off: Venezuela vs. Guyana. It’s an interesting dynamic going on because yes, this would be a resource war as Venezuela covets the oil rich area of Essequibo, which makes up 2/3 of Guyana, but it would also mark the renewal of the old British Empire/Spanish Empire Colonial Wars that went on for about 3 centuries 1530-1830, Guyana being the only English speaking country in S America.

    If you are wondering why so many American Jews vote Democrat instead of Republican, you have to go back about a century when the country’s first immigration quotas were passed by Congress. They definitely favored European countries with the exceptions of Poland and Italy. The quotas were passed by a Republican Congress and signed into law by a Republican president. When the 1921 quotas, which were based on the 1910 census did not limit immigration sufficiently by Jews and Italians, Congress went back to the 1890 census in the 1923 changes. Non-whites were mostly excluded until the 1965 overhaul of the immigration rules.

    Congressman Emmanuel Celler, a Brooklyn Democrat spent four decades try to get the 1923 changed. If he were still alive today, I wonder whether he would have “buyer’s remorse”.

    • Anon1970 December 12, 2023 at 11:55 am #

      1923 should read 1924.

      Democrat FDR’s administration was the first to open up major job opportunities to Jews. e.g. economist Milton Friedman and Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau Jr.

      • Socrates-Detroit December 12, 2023 at 1:37 pm #

        Henry Morgenthau SR. was prominent man, an German-born American Jewish lawyer and businessman.

        I only know of him because he was the US Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire from 1913-1916.

        He was not only aware of the genocide of Armenians and Christians, but tried to use his position to inform the American public via his writings and to persuade the Turks to stop.

        One of America’s greatest diplomats every.

          Is he the same Morgenthau behind the Morgenthau Plan to genocide the German people after WW2? Or his son?

          A German American Congressman went after him on the floor of the House, accusing him of planning genocide. Truman turned against it, saying, “Henry, we have to give them something.”

          Armenians are being ethnically cleansed by Azerbajanis in a disputed area. The lost another little war, thanks to Israel supplying the Muslims with drones.

            “Is he the same Morgenthau behind the Morgenthau Plan”

            That would be him. His plan was to keep the German POW’s outside in the winter on a barren stretch of land and starve/freeze them to death. Then, he was going to lock up, in warehouses, all the stored food supplies that German civilians had accumulated and starve the rest of Germany to death. Herbert Hoover intervened to stop the genocide and they came up with the less-bad Marshall Plan.

          • Socrates-Detroit December 12, 2023 at 2:11 pm #

            Good point. Morgenthau Jr. wanted to make Germany and agricultural country with no industry after the war.

            Yes, I understand that Azerbaijan attacked Artsakh, and 120,000 Armenians have left. Artsakh is an enclave that is historically Armenian,but located geographically inside Azerbaijan (Artsakh is also called Nagorno-Karabkh).

            Azerbaijan is next to Iran. Azerbaijan’s closest ally is, IMO, Turkey. Turkey’s Erdogan has said Turks and Azeris are cousins.

            Of course, the Turks hate Christians, which is why they killed the Armenians. And many Greeks.

            Azerbaijan is next to Iran. Israel is also very close to Azerbaijan, and has sold the Azerbaijanis a lot of hardware. Israel also uses Azerbaijan for intelligence gathering.

            Israel is also among the few nations that has not recognized the Armenian Holocaust. I bet that will surprise some of you.

            The Armenians are in a bad spot, geographically. No access to the sea, bordering Turkey and Azerbaijan (bad news), Georgia, and Iran (Iran and Armenia have been on good terms).

            The Armenians are in a bad spot, and the ruling class thinks the West is better for them (probably because the ruling class is owned/bribed) by the West, than Russia. I don’t think that’s smart for the Armenian people, but in any case, as I noted above, Armenia’s cards are bad.

            Russia values the relationship with Turkey and Azerbaijan at this time, so Russia has basically let Azerbaijan walk all over Armenia as a result.

            It could be worse–they could be stateless like the Kurds or the Palestinians.

            But I think things will change. The Russian and the Turk are like dog and cat–it’s an unnatural friendship of convenience for the time being.

            The Turks have one foot in each boat-US/NATO and Russia (and trying to join BRICS). Erdogan is a very adept and clever man, but at some point he, or probably his successor, will not be able to balance–the moment Turkey moves closer to either side, Turkey will lose a lot more from the other than ti will gain.

            And then perhaps, Armenia will get a break.

            One remember Joseph in old Egypt. Pharaoh had a dream of seven bad years. Joseph interpreted this dream correctly and Pharaoh put him in charge of getting ready for the seven bad years by increasing the grain tax in and storing it in public granaries. But instead of distributing it, he made the people buy back their own grain until they had no money left. Then they had to sell themselves into slavery in order just to eat and live.

            Then he invited his relatives down to live off the fat of the land and Egyptian servitude. But worse was the Pharaoh who want along with this betrayal. But he died and another Pharaoh arose, “who knew not Joseph” and put things back as they should be.

            The president of Armenia is a US stooge, and threw the residents of Nagorno-Karabkh under the bus, and then blamed their plight on Putin.
            That’s how they do.

            It was the Kurds who actually did the genocide of the Armenians, as allowed by the Sultanof the Ottoman Empire, according to Syrian Girl.
            They were rewarded with the houses and lands of the massacred Armenians, much as the US rewards them today in the 30% of Syria occupied by the US, under the ruse of “supporting the Kurds”.
            They did the same thing in Iraq.

            I wonder why other Arabs are not as sympathetic to them as Americans are?

          • Socrates-Detroit December 12, 2023 at 9:46 pm #

            @Paula I don’t follow Armenia in great detail, and I’m 6,000 miles away.

            But I am aware of what is going on. So, with those caveats

            I’m inclined to agree with you that Pachinyan, the leader of Armenia (President or PM) is stooge of the West.

            I speculate that he is like Zelensky, a lot of money and personal gain behind the scenes.

            I understand he publicly said “Artsakh is not part of Armenia”, or something along those lines, and the Azerbaijanis shortly thereafter attacked the Armenian enclave and overran it.

            Pachinyan’s comment was beyond stupid–I think it is treasonous.

            But still, the Azerbaijanis attacked. If Armenia wanted to, they could do little to help their kin.

            During the Azerbaijani attack, the Azerbaijanis even killed Russian “peacekeepers” (I can’t know it if was deliberate or an accident–but Azerbaijan got away with it).

            I think the Russians could have prevented the situation for degenerating, but they calculated that is not worth it for them, at this time.

            I think the people of Artsakh are gone forever, but in the long run, I think Russia will help Armenia get something else–not because the Russian government is magnanimous, but because it’s in their interests.

            I respect the Russian government in general, and Putin in particular. In the high-stakes global power game, no one plays the hand they are dealt with better skill than Russia.

            And the US is one of the worse players, squander a good hand for worse cards and playing them badly.

          • Paula D December 13, 2023 at 12:23 pm #

            But look at it from the Russian point of view.

            The actual president of Armenia tells Azerbaijan that Armenia agrees that Nagorno-Karabkh is part of Azerbaijan.
            So Azerbaijan moves to take over the land.

            Is Russia really supposed to step in and stop that? Under what pretext or international law?

            How is it Russia’s fault that Armenia has a US-stooge for a president? How is it Russia’s fault that he threw 250,000 of his own citizens under the bus? They could have used the murder of the Russian peacekeepers, but according to the Duran boys, Aliyev called up Putin, apologized profusely, and pledged to pay the families of the dead men support.

            I do feel sorry for the Armenians. I posted a letter one of them wrote to the person that was going to get her house, asking them to water her flowers.

            But I don’t blame Russia at all.

            They can’t solve all the world’s problems, or protect every person being attacked by the forces of Empire.

            Other countries need to step up, and I don’t mean Yemen.

          • Socrates-Detroit December 14, 2023 at 3:39 pm #

            @Paula

            Did I write anywhere that it is Russia’s fault?

            Did I “blame Russia”?

            No, I did not blame Russia for the ethnic cleansing of Armenians from Artsakh (also known as Nagorno-Karabkh) that took place this autumn.

            I stated that, if Russia wanted to, I believe the Russian government could have.

            The Russian government chose not to. Which I view as making a conscious choice that the relationship with Azerbaijan is more important than the fate of the Armenians, or relations with Armenia.

            Relations with Armenia are definitely not helped by having some one like Pashinyan in power, who wants to put Armenia in the Western camp, at the same time the West is fighting a war against Russia via Ukraine.

            As for you comment “other countries need to step up”, that’s very IDEALISTIC, and not realistic.

            If the US government was “good” and wanted to, it has NO DIRECT way of sending troop or DIRECTLY helping Armenia.

            Just look at a map.

            It can indirectly help by cutting aid to Turkey and Azerbaijan. But it won’t.

            So, the Armenians have been dealt a bad hand. Until or unless Turkey is broken up, and Armenia gets access to the Black Sea, and Kurdistan becomes an independent nation which is in the Russian camp, Armenia is surrounded.

            At this time, Armenia has two “friends” in a position to directly help: Russia and Iran. That’s it.

            The Americans are pushing Armenia to close Russian base(s) in Armenia, which there is some kind of signed agreement giving the Russians a long-term (x years, 20, 30, 40) “lease”.

            If the Armenians push the Russians out, bigger problems for the people of Armenia.

            The Armenians “elites” like Pashinyan are bought and owned by the West.

      The 1923 immigration quotas were structured to reflect the existing US ethnic picture. Was that so wrong?

      Around 1970 they changed all that to let in a flood of Asians and Hispanics.

      • OG December 12, 2023 at 12:20 pm #

        You seem to have missed the bit about the 1921 quotas were based on the 1910 census but then the 1924 quotas were blatantly, corruptly based on the 1890 census.

        • Socrates-Detroit December 12, 2023 at 1:52 pm #

          @OG Very impressive little fact about 1890 census–and you’re from Canada.

          I think the quota for Greece was 75 a year….

          The 1923/24 law allowed immigrants ALREADY in the US to become US citizens. The quotas were for NEW arrivals.

          The result of largely “closing” immigration was one and half generations of “assimilation”.

          The “batch” of Americans from 1925-1965 was forged into the “idealized” America of the 1950s and 1960s.

          Together with the “new” invention of radio, the crisis of the Great Depression, and the massive effort of WW2, and later TV, plus increased travel via trains and later cars and planes, the restrictions made America, certainly “white America”, more “American”.

    1 Out Of Every 5 U.S. Children Does Not Have Enough Food To Eat As The Global Food Crisis Intensifies

    theeconomiccollapseblog.com/1-out-of-every-5-u-s-children-does-not-have-enough-food-to-eat-as-the-global-food-crisis-intensifies/

    We tend to think of the global food crisis as something that is happening on the other side of the world. And it is certainly true that there are vast hordes of impoverished people that are desperate for food in other areas of the planet right now, because hunger is spreading like wildfire in poor countries. But the truth is that hunger is spreading rapidly in the United States as well. According to a report that was just released by the USDA, a whopping 44 million Americans now live in “food insecure households”…

    Above Mitch advocated for inner work on oneself. Look within and see if your ideas make any sense. Do they fit with the facts? Do they even agree with each other to form a coherent whole in line with your world view? If not, correct them. If utterly worthless, delete them. You don’t have to be a lifelong victim of your upbringing and programming.

    In his journals, Abraham Maslow recounted his struggle with feeling of hatred for his Christian students during the Christmas season. Jews have a very strong culture. That means strong programming, not always positive or rational. But it can be done as Mitch relates above.

      The problem of self-reflection and examining long-held ideas is that you’re still attempting to solve biases and beliefs and feelings with the mind. The mind will never resolve problems of the mind.

      “Inner work”, here, is spiritual practice — beyond the mind. You’ve already correctly chided mitch for your contention that he’s the type of guy that would take a walk in the woods and only think about how much the lumber would sell for.

      The kind of inner work that you’re detailing is largely a fruitless struggle. Small gains, if any, in one’s comportment, perhaps. Nothing transformative.

        Not so. One must walk before one can run. As Ken Wilber said, If everyone became truly rational, it would change life on Earth for the better.

        And it’s not just of the mind either. Rather it’s using the mind to explore the entire being. A very important part of many systems, especially the Buddhist.

        As per Plotinus: To enter into Beauty, one must become beautiful, right? So look within. What is not beautiful? What can be done to make it so?

        And for all systems: Morality. Of the Platonic Trinity: The Good is paramount, at least for most. All must engage in this. Not all will engage directly with the True and the Beautiful, except via the Good. It is the Straight Path, the “Bow shot” from Tiphareth to Kether. Thus the universality of the daily review of one’s action as per the moral code – the same among Elves, Dwarves, and Men.

        One Catholic monk asked a new arrival about the beautiful art in his previous church. The arrival said, I never looked up at it. Beauty, at least outer, formed no part of his personal path.

        • Soul Forensics December 13, 2023 at 5:10 pm #

          “one must walk before they can run.”

          I agree with everything you said above. But your initial post was in a different context. I always emphasize the two realities: the relative and the absolute. It seemed you were using the absolute mode with your chipping away at the sculpture metaphor.

          That’s the progressive approach. That works (if it does at all) by increments, and is shaky at best. Many’s the person who advances (somewhat) in moral behaviour, only to slip up once again when life’s difficulties intervene, or when they fall in with the wrong crowd, or a million other possible circumstances. Hence, the constant need, in exoteric church going, to ‘prove’ one’s faith and solemnity. The good news ‘answer’ is always deferred.

          The reality — and I think you’d agree — is that most adepts bypass all the effortful character work. One thinks of Ramani Maharshi, or Jesus or Gautama the Buddha. But even in someone like Jean Klein, who outwardly took the progressive approach (medical doctor, musicologist), the already-formed character, re his bio, was there as a young child.

          The only ‘hope’ I have is that the efforts in this lifetime might play out in ten generations, but that’s not much of a motivator for this lifetime. So whether one believes in the effort, or (most of us) doesn’t have the desire for it, humans won’t improve in the context of political vicissitudes and environmental challenges.

          Shit happens, and we don’t have the spiritual realization to do anything significant about it.

          That said, and keeping with any running paradoxes, I’m not a nihilist! Art and beauty is ever present. And sometimes a great or good man or woman.

            They did the preliminary work in other lives. Or they are completely free Souls incarnating as per the Will of the Absolute.

            We have not seen the Father but we have seen the Son. And he who sees the Son sees the Father.

            Bhakti is its own path. As one disciple said of Ramakrishna, he wove an incredible garland of love, knowledge and renunciation – not to keep it but to throw it at the feet of the Divine Mother. The final impulse comes from above. Even the god filled mind or the purified Buddhi cannot erase itself (as you said), but must wait for the Hand to life it up. Bhaktis understand the waiting better, but perhaps not the inner work per se, as Brahm Vidya or the Science of God.

            Yes indeed. Klein called it “waiting without waiting”.

    Death and Destruction in Gaza

    JOHN J. MEARSHEIMER
    DEC 11, 2023
    I do not believe that anything I say about what is happening in Gaza will affect Israeli or American policy in that conflict. But I want to be on record so that when historians look back on this moral calamity, they will see that some Americans were on the right side of history.

    What Israel is doing in Gaza to the Palestinian civilian population – with the support of the Biden administration – is a crime against humanity that serves no meaningful military purpose. As J-Street, an important organization in the Israel lobby, puts it, “The scope of the unfolding humanitarian disaster and civilian casualties is nearly unfathomable.”[1]

    Let me elaborate.

    First, Israel is purposely massacring huge number of civilians, roughly 70 percent of whom are children and women. The claim that Israel is going to great lengths to minimize civilian casualties is belied by statements from high level Israeli officials. For example, the IDF spokesman said on 10 October 2023 that “the emphasis is on damage and not on accuracy.” That same day, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant announced: “I have lowered all the restraints – we will kill everyone we fight against; we will use every means.”[2]

    Moreover, it is clear from the results of the bombing campaign that Israel is indiscriminately killing civilians. Two detailed studies of the IDF’s bombing campaign – both published in Israeli outlets – explain in detail how Israel is murdering huge numbers of civilians. It is worth quoting the titles of the two pieces, which succinctly capture what each has to say:

    “‘A Mass Assassination Factory’: Inside Israel’s Calculated Bombing of Gaza”[3]

    “The Israeli Army Has Dropped the Restraint in Gaza, and the Data Shows Unprecedented Killing.”[4]

    Similarly, the New York Times published an article in late November 2023 titled: “Gaza Civilians, Under Israeli Barrage, Are Being Killed at Historic Pace.”[5] Thus, it is hardly surprising that the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, said that “We are witnessing a killing of civilians that is unparalleled and unprecedented in any conflict since” his appointment in January 2017.[6]

    Second, Israel is purposely starving the desperate Palestinian population by greatly limiting the amount of food, fuel, cooking gas, medicine, and water that can be brought into Gaza. Moreover, medical care is extremely hard to come by for a population that now includes approximately 50,000 wounded civilians. Not only has Israel greatly limited the supply of fuel into Gaza, which hospitals need to function, but it has targeted hospitals, ambulances, and first aid stations.

    Defense Minister Gallant’s comment on 9 October captures Israeli policy: “I have ordered a complete siege on the Gaza Strip. There will be no electricity, no food, no fuel, everything is closed. We are fighting human animals, and we are acting accordingly.”[7] Israel has been forced to allow minimal supplies into Gaza, but the amounts are so small that a senior UN official reports that “half of Gaza’s population is starving.” He goes on to report that, “Nine out of 10 families in some areas are spending ‘a full day and night without any food at all’.”[8]

    Third, Israeli leaders talk about Palestinians and what they would like to do in Gaza in shocking terms, especially when you consider that some of these leaders also talk incessantly about the horrors of the Holocaust. Indeed, their rhetoric has led Omar Bartov, a prominent Israeli-born scholar of the Holocaust, to conclude that Israel has “genocidal intent.”[9] Other scholars in Holocaust and genocide studies have offered a similar warning.[10]

    To be more specific, it is commonplace for Israeli leaders to refer to Palestinians as “human animals, ”human beasts,” and “horrible inhuman animals.”[11] And as Israeli President Isaac Herzog makes clear, those leaders are referring to all Palestinians, not just Hamas: In his words, “It is an entire nation out there that is responsible.”[12] Unsurprisingly, as the New York Times reports, it is part of normal Israeli discourse to call for Gaza to be “flattened,” “erased,” or “destroyed.”[13] One retired IDF general, who proclaimed that “Gaza will become a place where no human being can exist,” also makes the case that “severe epidemics in the south of the Gaza Strip will bring victory closer.”[14] Going even further, a minister in the Israeli government suggested dropping a nuclear weapon on Gaza.[15] These statements are not being made by isolated extremists, but by senior members of Israel’s government.

    Of course, there is also much talk of ethnically cleansing Gaza (and the West Bank), in effect, producing another Nakba.[16] To quote Israel’s Agriculture Minister, “We are now rolling out the Gaza Nakba.”[17]Perhaps the most shocking evidence of the depths to which Israeli society has sunk is a video of very young children singing a blood-curdling song celebrating Israel’s destruction of Gaza: “Within a year we will annihilate everyone, and then we will return to plow our fields.”[18]

    Fourth, Israel is not just killing, wounding, and starving huge numbers of Palestinians, it is also systematically destroying their homes as well as critical infrastructure – to include mosques, schools, heritage sites, libraries, key government buildings, and hospitals.[19] As of 1 December 2023, the IDF had damaged or destroyed almost 100,000 buildings, including entire neighborhoods that have been reduced to rubble.[20] Consequently, a stunning 90 percent of Gaza’s 2.3 million Palestinians have been displaced from their homes.[21] Moreover, Israel is making a concerted effort to destroy Gaza’s cultural heritage; as NPR reports, “more than 100 Gaza heritage sites have been damaged or destroyed by Israeli attacks.”[22]

    Fifth, Israel is not just terrorizing and killing Palestinians, it is also publicly humiliating many of their men who have been rounded up by the IDF in routine searches. Israeli soldiers strip them down to their underwear, blindfold them, and display them in a public way in their neighborhoods – sitting them down in large groups in the middle of the street, for example, or parading them through the streets – before taking them away in trucks to detention camps. In most cases, the detainees are then released as they are not Hamas fighters.[23]

    Sixth, although the Israelis are doing the slaughtering, they could not do it without the Biden administration’s support. Not only was the United States the only country to vote against a recent UN Security Council resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, but it has also been providing Israel with the weaponry necessary to wage this massacre.[24] As one Israeli general (Yitzhak Brick) recently made clear: “All of our missiles, the ammunition, the precision-guided bombs, all the airplanes and bombs, it’s all from the U.S. The minute they turn off the tap, you can’t keep fighting. You have no capability.… Everyone understands that we can’t fight this war without the United States. Period.”[25] Remarkably, the Biden administration has sought to expedite sending Israel additional ammunition, by-passing the normal procedures of the Arms Export Control Act.[26]

    Seventh, while most of the focus is now on Gaza, it is important not to lose sight of what is simultaneously going on in the West Bank. Israeli settlers, working closely with the IDF, continue to kill innocent Palestinians and steal their land. In an excellent article in the New York Review of Books describing these horrors, David Shulman relates a conversation he had with a settler, which clearly reflects the moral dimension of Israeli behavior toward the Palestinians. “What we are doing to these people is actually inhuman,” the settler freely admits, “But if you think about it clearly, it all follows inevitably from the fact that God promised this land to the Jews, and only to them.”[27] Along with its assault on Gaza, the Israel government has markedly increased the number of arbitrary arrests in the West Bank. According to Amnesty International, there is considerable evidence that these prisoners have been tortured and subjected to degrading treatment.[28]

    As I watch this catastrophe for the Palestinians unfold, I am left with one simple question for Israel’s leaders, their American defenders, and the Biden administration: have you no decency?

    Jarek: This is the same Mearsheimer who along with one, Alt, wrote a paper about the Jewish control of our foreign policy. Do you remember the screams, like the screams of the damned? Yet nothing changed. They aren’t going to give up this power. And anyone who actually tries take it away from them will be destroyed. Can anyone doubt that they were right about this? At this stage?

    Should the the word after a colon be capitalized? For Q, this is all that matters.

      @Jarek Thanks for sharing!!!

      Well written!!! This is why Mearsheimer is a professor and I am not.

      The Israeli actions since Oct 07 are the piece of the puzzle that finally show to me the Israeli ruling class objective all along. That is to remove the native Palestinians PERMANENTLY and allow only a small minority of Palestinians, if any, to live in Palestine to serve as gardeners, maids, and laborers.

      My mistake was, I associated this kind of thing with the “Likudniks” like Netenyahu, when in fact it is all the Israeli ruling class, including Labor PMs, all along, since 1948.

      Just like Churchill and FDR wanted, and needed, Pearl Harbor, to get US public opinion to support the US going to war against Germany, the Israeli Government needed a Pearl Harbor moment in order to carry out their Final Solution, which is to remove the Palestinians, first from Gaza.

      Toward that end, they ramped up the abuses on the West Bank and defiled the Al-Aqsa Mosque (much like the US tried to economically strangle Japan with embargos, in order to provoke a Japanese reaction). They also “ignored warnings” of a Hamas attack, to enable Hamas to kill more Israelis, so the Israeli public would support the Israeli Government.

      That’s how I connect the dots.

        Yes, solutions are not for problems but rather, problems are for solutions.

        Thus s=v (vaccine) and p=c (“covid”)

        Why not covid as a first name as Covid Johnson? Or a last name as in William Covid?

        Iran barks but doesn’t really bite. Fear of the Israelis and much discontent among its population.

        Iran has the missile, “400 seconds to Tel-Aviv”. They want Israel destroyed but dare not try it, kind of a MAD situation but with the Israelis holding the nukes.

        After Gaza, and aware of the realities, the heads of Iranian leaders are more ready to explode rather than their missiles. The restraint must be near unbearable.

    • Islander December 12, 2023 at 3:32 pm #

      Re JHK, “My people . . .”
      Yep, these are “your people.”

      In an interesting couple of paragraphs in Ron Unz’s latest essay in his “American Pravda” series, Unz mentions the actual DNA of Emily Bazalon, who commands the front page of the NYT”

      “. . . Based upon [Emiliy Bazalon’s] background, I would assume that she is a staunch liberal, enormously proud of her grand-father David L. Bazelon, who reigned for more than two decades as the Chief Justice of America’s most important Appellate court, a jurist whose enormous influence on civil libertarian matters had established him as one of the most influential judicial figures of the twentieth century, a towering hero of American progressives. In that role, he had also served as a mentor to Alan Dershowitz, who had clerked for him, and surely helped shape the latter’s notions of honesty and justice.

      . . .[S]everal years ago I read a pair of very thick volumes on the history of organized crime by Gus Russo, one of our leading investigative reporters on that subject, and discovered that important elements had been airbrushed out of Bazelon’s celebrated background. Bazelon had been elevated to the bench at the age of 40, becoming the youngest Appellate justice in American history. But prior to that, his personal legal activities had been of a rather different type.

      “After beginning his career as a young mob-lawyer for Al Capone’s Chicago Syndicate, he had then played a central role in looting the property of the dispossessed Japanese-Americans of California and distributing their billions of dollars worth of seized assets to other Jewish families with Syndicate ties on extremely favorable terms, while becoming very wealthy through the huge kickbacks he collected.

      “Thus, during exactly the same years that Zionist settlers were dispossessing and looting the property of the unfortunate inhabitants of Palestine on racial grounds, their Jewish cousins in America were doing much the same thing to a different group within the United States .”

      Actually, that should be “groups,” because the German Americans were also robbed and looted, their businesses and patents taken over.

      Major beneficiaries of Bazalon’s scurrilous legal activities in California were Chicago’s Pritzker family. Gus Russo has a whole pages-long appendix listing the many properties in California and Nevada that the Pritzker clan gained by mainly foul means before managing to reincarnate themselveds as staunch members of the “overworld” and join the Chicago elite.

      The Pritzkers were major sponsors of the young, unknown Barack Obama. Thus, there is a straight line from the dispossession of both Japanese and German Americans in California, through Bazalon to the Pritzkers to Barack Obama. That includes the trans monster and “philantrhopist” Jennifer (born James) Pritzker.

      I guess it was just a coincidence that the Bazalons are Jewish. Or, perhaps David Bazalon is an example of “my people’s”
      superior mental and moral and civic capacities and talents.

      Both of Russo’s books are heavily documented and highly readable (I know I have mentioned them at least once previously at this blog):

      @ Jarek:

      The question of capitalization after a colon has been troubling me for a long time. Seems like I used to know the rules on that, but forgot them. (This is probably not a matter of “rules,” per se, but of style, anyway.)

      So, after all this time, I looked it up. Here’s what I got.

      Do not capitalize after a colon if you’re introducing a list.

      When a colon introduces an incomplete sentence, do not capitalize the first letter unless it is a proper noun.

      According to some style guides, you may capitalize the first letter following a colon if the colon introduces a complete sentence.

      • Jarek December 14, 2023 at 1:51 pm #

        Makes sense – especially the complete sentence, which is what I usually do. Thanks.

    In Enneads I 6, 9, Plotinus writes,

    Go back inside yourself and look: if you do not yet see yourself as beautiful [i.e., as participating in the Idea of Beauty], then do as the sculptor does with a statue he wants to make beautiful; he chisels away one part, and levels off another, makes one spot smooth and another clear, until he shows forth a beautiful face on the statue. Like him, remove what is superfluous, straighten what is crooked, clean up what is dark and make it bright, and never stop sculpting your own statue, until the godlike splendor of virtue shines forth to you…. If you have become this, and seen it, and become pure and alone with yourself, with nothing now preventing you from becoming one in this way, and have nothing extraneous mixed with your self… if you see that this is what you have become, then you have become a vision.

    YouTube recommended a video to me, and I am finding it fascinating.

    I have heard of the Opium Wars of the 19th century, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that I found out that the wars were actually England forcing opium onto China. I had always gotten the impression it was the other way around.
    Go figure.

    Anyway, this history starts before that, and it is about the trade imbalance caused by the world loving Chinese tea, but having nothing of value to trade.
    England demanded that the Emperor open up ports to them, and the Emperor said no.

    So, just like today, the propaganda machine started up, and the Brits were turned from pro-Chinese to anti-Chinese, just like that!

    Sound familiar?

    There are those on this board who are falling for the 21st century version, except they hate commies, as ordered, instead of the Emperor, as ordered.
    But they still follow orders.

      This is why China is now pushing Chemical opium on the world.
      Payback as they have long memories.
      The Chinese have also started pushing carfentanil an even more potent synthetic opiod.
      Carfentanil is about 100 times more potent than fentanyl and 10,000 times more potent than morphine. It often takes the form of a white, brown, tan or beige powdery substance.

          I can’t speak for JAZ but I have been paying attention.
          I have had anit for the Chinese for well over the last twenty years so nope as always wrong again Paula.
          Fentanyl deaths are way up in the last decade.
          Far outstripping even the poison Dupont was slinging and addicting people to with Oxy.
          Now when someone has a tooth yanked and needs pain pills the damn diversion wing of the DEA has the doctors terrified to issue pain meds even when they are actually needed.
          I also saw the insane amount of fentanyl being seized in Southern California and in some cases the amounts were enough to kill everyone in California in just one seizure.
          China creates the raw materials and the cartels process them into the drugs that are killing people all over.
          It has gotten so bad my last year working for a LEO I asked for Narcan so I could save some lives if I came across someone over dosing and was promptly told no.
          This stuff is so nasty just touching it in small amounts can be lethal.
          China is paying the west back for the opium wars plain and simple.

            I cannot understand people’s acceptance of the drug culture, any part of it.

            I guess when life gets bad enough, escape is an option. Why else destroy your mind? Oh, I forgot, it enhances your mind. Uh-huh.

            Navy training, Paula. NBC warfare. The C stands for chemical. Not just sarin, or mustard. Cultural destruction comes from marijuana, opium(ask the Chinese), heroin, fentanyl and other forms of drugs. Chemical warfare.

            Paula, you might be happy, the Chinese will probably just walk right in and take over with their threat being cutting off the drugs.

          • Paula D December 13, 2023 at 2:45 pm #

            As I’ve pointed out many times, JAZ, the Chinese are already here, and have been for a long time.

            You refuse to acknowledge reality, and instead spin lurid fantasies of the future.

            The Chinese already own a great deal of US land, housing and corporations.
            If you had watched the video you would know that they were investing in the US economy way back in the 19th century.
            They are still doing it.
            Already. As in now.

            They don’t have to “cut off” the drugs that they are not actually distributing throughout the networks in the US, which were established a long time ago by the Mafia, with the help of bought-off officials, and later by their partnership with the CIA.
            You’d think you would understand that, with your interest in the Mafia, and all.

        • Paula D December 13, 2023 at 12:29 pm #

          The fentanyl started when Americans started noticing that heroin use and overdoses were skyrocketing after the US invaded Afghanistan, let the drug lords out of jail, and had soldiers guarding the poppy fields.

          All of a sudden, we were told that the OD deaths were from Oxycontin. Bad Sacklers!

          Then they switched to fentanyl, blaming the Chinese. Sure, dudes.

          I wasn’t born yesterday, and when I watch events, I don’t let my previous biases color my perception of the propganda.

          I wondered what they were going to do to replace the heroin profits when they left Afghanistan.

          Now we know. Ramp up the fentanyl, blame it on the Chinese, and don’t let dumbass Americans wonder how 17 spy agencies, a DEA, and a powerful military can’t stop drugs from coming over the border.
