Which Movie Will It Be?

“It’s almost as if the principals (prosecutors and judge) were performing for their political audience — with a wink, a nod and a stage whisper (“watch this!”) as they ignore yet another fundamental element of American due process.” — Jack DeVine on “X”

      The ninnies of Bidenworld seem to not understand that by subjecting Mr. Trump to a kangaroo court they’ve made him the kind of outlaw that Americans revere above every other archetypal hero. He’s the new American Robin Hood, the people’s outlaw — with “Joe Biden” relegated as the wicked Sir Guy of Gisbourne, master of foul play and servant of the evil regent Prince John (Barack Obama). The galvanizing moment in this melodrama was not the verdict in Judge Juan Merchan’s kangaroo corral of a court, but the next day in the White House when “Joe Biden” was asked to comment on it as he shuffled away from the podium, halted, turned, and smirked silently at the cameras, a gesture that is sure to live in infamy.

      The fun should really kick off when the judge gets to sentence Trump-the-Outlaw July 11, a few days before the Republican convention. Life in some New York state pen? A year on Rikers Island? House arrest? Who knows. But you can bet that just like Robin-of-Locksley, Donald-of-Mar-a-Lago will manage to slip out of his captors’ clutches and cleverly vanquish them. In a sane world, of course, the US Supreme Court would be entreated to adjudicate this gross insult to due process as spelled out in Section 1 of the 14th Amendment.

No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

      But you might have noticed that this is not a sane world, at least not these days, and not a few supposedly sober analysts, such as Jonathan Turley of George Washington University, claim that a SCOTUS review is a long-shot — which only confirms the reigning insanity since it’s hard to imagine a more compelling moment for the SCOTUS to carry out its fundamental duty: to elucidate the meaning of our Constitution and resolve disputes arising therefrom.

     Now, it looks like what we’re seeing after a few days for the shock to wear off, is a mighty righteous rage arising among the faction designated as “Red” — that is, the anti-Woke, anti-Globalist, anti-neoMarxist, anti-Deep State blob, anti-Lawfare, anti-Democratic Party chunk of the adult US population. It amounts to a recognition that we are already in some kind of civil war, and that the tactics of “Joe Biden’s” party must and will be opposed by all means. The SCOTUS is the last resort of legal means for redress in this matter, and they would punt this duty at great peril to the country.

      To clarify just what this matter is: “Joe Biden’s” White House and Department of Justice conspired with New York County (Manhattan) authorities to maliciously construct and execute a court case made of patently false charges against their principal political adversary, and with a cavalier disrespect to both state and federal law.

     As such, the “Stormy Daniels Payoff Case,” as it’s known, is just the latest ploy in a long train of lawless gambits starting with RussiaGate in 2016 (the “Steele Dossier” and all) that have left hundreds of high appointed officials in the federal bureaucracy (plus many retired from it) liable to severe criminal charges ranging as far as sedition and treason. RussiaGate may have started its life as a typical campaign prank by doofuses in the Hillary Clinton organization, but it turned seriously sinister when it was adopted by the FBI and the CIA to execute a plan to harass and defenestrate the elected president, Mr. Trump.

      With each subsequent prank, to distract from and cover-up their crimes, the same group of officials has committed more crimes, to the point that the federal government now behaves like a gigantic mafia, dedicated to nothing but crime of one kind or another. The Democratic Party has become this mob’s protective order; the old mainstream media its mouthpiece; and the people of this country increasingly its victims. Naturally, these criminals are now desperate to avoid having to account for their crimes, which is exactly and explicitly what Mr. Trump promises to make them do.

     So, there it is: a criminal regime versus the people defended by their outlaw hero. Does the SCOTUS want to aid and abet this gang of criminals — led by the way, and just so you know, by Barack Obama and his Kalorama coterie, John Brennan, Mary McCord and her Lawfare coterie, Hillary and Bill Clinton and their henchmen, and scores of additional DC lawyers, fixers, and judges — or, will the SCOTUS avert an epic crisis of legitimacy by stepping in to quash the ridiculously fake New York case just concluded?

      If they demur in some cowardly blur of excuses, then it’s onto the next truly nation-ending stage of this game. The “Joe Biden” regime would like nothing more than an outbreak of civil violence they can blame on “right-wing extremists.” In fact, they could and probably will gin that up themselves, just as they transformed the Jan-6-21 mass protest against widespread ballot fraud into a “MAGA insurrection.” You are also certainly aware of the sinister millions, mainly young men from faraway lands, who “Joe Biden” imported across the border the past three years. And you might imagine how they could be put to use against American citizens, along with the Democratic Party shock troops known as BLM and Antifa. Summer’s here and the time is right for fighting in the streets. And, of course, even if the SCOTUS puts an end to this latest bit of Lawfare fuckery, the “Joe Biden” crew can always opt to just up and kill its opponent. Nothing is beneath them now. But when that happens, we’ll be in a very different kind of movie.

    Obama and Biden are just faces for the nameless puppet masters running this charade. The CIA won’t touch Trump, they are more likely to go after RFK jr, to make this a / person race. Then rig the polls, then steal the election again. If not 25-29 Trump will be tied up with Democratic shenanigans, unless Trump uses full measures, rather than half measures on these traitors.

    • dilbert113 June 3, 2024 at 9:40 am #

      The problem with saying “they’ll just rig the polls and steal the election again” is this: right now Biden’s numbers are horrible, I think one poll had him at a 35 percent approval rating. One can fix a close race without difficulty, and that’s what happened last time. . .but convincing people that a guy with awful approval ratings, in an awful economy, a man who soils himself and routinely falls down in public, won the election over a popular opponent. . .I don’t see how that works. I honestly don’t think the American people would accept the results of a blatantly, obviously rigged presidential election.

      • tuco22 June 3, 2024 at 9:51 am #

        I think they would. I think they’d accept it in a heartbeat. They accept any other kind of screwing over without a whimper. Trust me, there will be no outrage in the streets when Biden gets installed in segment #2 to “finish the job,” as he put it once.

        • Demeter June 3, 2024 at 10:15 am #

          What is needed is not outrage in the streets. It’s a total economic shutdown. Boycott until they bleed out.

          • Demeter June 3, 2024 at 10:17 am #

            Put your money where your mouth is. And put it in gold or other inviolate goods.

          • tuco22 June 3, 2024 at 10:26 am #

            I’ve advocated denying services, where possible, to elected representatives that vote against the country’s best interests. Hell, if Joe Biden can show up at a Sheetz store and then turn around and sue them because there weren’t enough black faces behind the counter, then you can lock the door for “plumbing problems,” can’t you?

          • Hardrock June 3, 2024 at 11:07 am #

            I don’t think voluntary economic shutdown in the sense of boycott is going to happen for reasons listed in the comments.

            What MAY happen is that the house of cards we have is very unstable right now and it may collapse. When you consider that the debt is out of control and the treasury auctions are flat and yields are going up, it doesn’t bode well for the US.

            I don’t say this lightly because it will have consequences that no one likes to consider but I think that for the long-term health of the Republic, we need some event to occur that will reveal the sleazy underside of our political class in a way that few can deny.

            I hate the thought that Trump will win and the policies of Biden will put the country in recession right after the inauguration giving the Democrats more ammunition. I hope they have to take responsibility for the border, the spending, and the inflation….Republicans are about as bad on the spending but they talk a better game.

            I’d like to see Rand Paul as President.

          • shotho June 3, 2024 at 1:16 pm #

            The ‘total economic shutdown is on its way and will not need to be encouraged. Financial collapse is baked in the cake, but continues to be stalled by credit that is pumped into the economy by various means, like ‘reverse repo’ and sundry other ‘facilities’.

          • Breck June 3, 2024 at 1:36 pm #

            Exactly! I said the same thing in my long post today [q.v.]. “those that the Lord loves he chastizes”?

        • Cankerpuss June 3, 2024 at 10:28 am #

          I agree. After the covid fraud where I watched business owners willingly shut down their livelihoods, watched people believe the virus spreads at church but not at Walmart, watched people terminate life long friendships because of a vaccine status, watched people cover their faces with disgusting diapers and watched people shun those of us who tried to remind them of the fraud, I don’t believe for a second that Americans will rise up if DJT has his election stolen from him yet again.

          People still have it way too good in America. Trips to Hawaii and Disney World are still the mainstay. Americans are still buying massive homes they do not need and cannot afford. Americans are still buying luxury trucks and using those trucks to pull their fifth wheel and loaded toy hauler.

          There is no reason for most Americans to revolt against the corruption.

          Nothing will happen.

          • tuco22 June 3, 2024 at 11:46 am #

            It’s Catherine Austin Fitts’s red button test all over again. Out of 100 people, only one was willing to press the red button to end all corruption in the system, if it was possible, if it meant losing wealth in the process.

          • Blackbird June 3, 2024 at 7:45 pm #

            “There is no reason for most Americans to revolt against the corruption.”

            Because most Americans are corrupt.

          • rundmc June 3, 2024 at 8:55 pm #

            I always wonder where the people who comment in here live. The people around where I live in the Rockies never closed any businesses down during “covid.” They didn’t stay inside other than for a first few days until they realized this was a complete sham. People ignored what was happening in the coasts and parts of the midwest; we didn’t wear masks; we continued to go to church in addition to stores, and we didn’t get the shot. (I also traveled in the midwest in mid 2020 and frankly most people there – outside of big cities – were ignoring these “edicts” as well).

            People here are investing in land, animals, savings, energy, gold and silver. They are still buying big homes but because they are having big families; they are investing in kids (and not to groom but to raise as smart, civily minded individuals). They are buying trucks so they can haul things needed to live, not to drive on the 405. AND, they are – by and large – fit and healthy. They hike, hunt, fish, run, farm. Are strong and tan, naturally, including the many many people who live here who are “of color.” All of you acting as if Americans are all fat and lazy must live in places that I don’t visit anymore. If (and increasingly likely) when the US splits – which I fervently hope is an amicable one through a constitutional convention – we are ready to govern ourselves in a new way. And, we have all the resources. We live in places where we have our own energy; our own land, animal resources, abundant sun and water. I hope that people in big cities on the coasts and the benighted places like Chicago come to their senses soon and realize that they need us far more than we need them. But, I don’t know that they have any senses left.

            That said, we are peaceful, civil people. We just don’t believe the rest of the country continues to be.

          • ET777 June 4, 2024 at 4:06 am #

            The Revolt will happen in 2028 after the massive economic crash coming in 2027. Supply chains will be broken, people will be starving and homeless. The 25 Red Constitutional States will have had enough and will have an organized Secession, probably under their appointed President DeSantis.

            “United” States “President” Newsom will threaten the Secession states with sanctions and then be forced to send in the US Military to stop the Secession. The military will be fragmented and worn down trying to cover the vast Wars of the World which the Democrats and RINOs are pushing, along with their DEI initiatives.

            The open border will continue under Newsom and by 2028, there will be another 20 million illegals unvetted in the US. Terrorist attacks will be regular events and chaos will reign supreme.

            Another pandemic and required jabbing will have come and gone with devastating effects on the health of those who took the mRNA. Pure Bloods will be even more rare and will organize in to colonies, forming strategic alliances and new families.

            Only then, when truly starving and losing everything, will true Americans organize and fight back. They will have no other choice.

        • Ishabaka June 3, 2024 at 11:46 am #

          If Americans can accept a female Supreme Court Justice who doesn’t know what a woman is, they can accept anything.

        • dilbert113 June 3, 2024 at 10:05 am #

          I share your opinion of most Americans. Perhaps you are right and this woke/broke/joke of a country is finished.

        • Cankerpuss June 3, 2024 at 10:34 am #

          In addition to fat, stupid and lazy, they are also covered with unrecognizable tattoos, their faces full of metallic piercings, their hair colored unnatural purples, blues, greens and oranges.

          Americans are also immoral. They no longer marry. They no longer believe in fidelity in marriage.

          Americans no longer value life. Women, the supposed fairer of the sexes, willingly murder their unborn children and then worship the fetal remains in home make altars.

          Let’s face the truth. Our world is what it is because the people have corrupted themselves. Until the people make themselves right again nothing is going to improve. The part that frightens me is the people won’t change their horrible ways until they have a reason to do so and that’s the part of this equation that really frightens me. How bad must things get before the average American described here awakens him / herself and makes personal changes? I wish I knew the answer to this.

          • JackStraw June 3, 2024 at 10:39 am #

            I think you nailed it. We’re a morally bankrupt nation that needs to suffer deeply in order to turn it around, like how the alcoholic must hit bottom before changing ways.

            So, what’s on the Brittaney channel…?

        • neurodoc June 3, 2024 at 12:31 pm #

          Things will change when the Rus nuke NYC, DC, Chicago, and LA and everyone has to carry a Geiger counter along with their rifle and piston, when the US$ has collapsed and you have to use something of REAL value to buy food and fuel. Only then will americanus boobus get off the couch and take action against whatever/whoever he thinks is the culprit/cause of his woes.

          The latter event is much closer than most think. Take a look at the USDebtClock site; the govmint admits to a 100Trillion$ debt but that doesn’t include the 52Trillion$ owed to other countries and it doesn’t list the 11Trillion$ that must be paid to foreign redeeming bond holders over the next 30 days. These factual data show the US Corporation to be in a state of bankruptcy RIGHT NOW. Its just being hidden from americanus boobus so it will continue paying taxed and buying things it doesn’t need with money it does not have.

          Then again, americanus boobus wouldn’t believe the above data if they actually saw it and understood how to interpret it. It doesn’t jive with boobus’s conception of ‘merica. Boobus thinks Trump or G_D or voting is going to solve things.

          • Cankerpuss June 3, 2024 at 12:56 pm #

            “Then again, americanus boobus wouldn’t believe the above data if they actually saw it and understood how to interpret it.”

            Yes. Which is why I often feel such a state of despair.

            The trillions you mention also need to include all privately held debt including mortgages, student loans, auto loans and credit card debt which is somewhere, from what I have found, between $17 trillion and $76 trillion.

            There is not enough property and junk in the world to be sold to pay off this debt. There is not enough money in the world to buy the property and junk to pay off this debt. The only way out involves two options.

            1. Start printing trillion dollar Federal Reserve Notes.
            2. Go into default and purge the debt.

            Both options spell disaster for the average jane and joe.

      • Cankerpuss June 3, 2024 at 10:23 am #

        Nope, not buying it. This wasn’t any different than the last election that they stole from DJT. They’ll do it again because the states are too dependent upon the Federal Government for survival and won’t challenge the results and the American people are too busy working to make ends meet or too busy downloading their pornography or too buys dying from fentanyl to notice or to care.

            Yup. Trump’s “convictions” make it more likely, to me, that he will be re-selected to be POTUS, as it will increase the ever-so-profitable division of the US.

            Watch Burn, Loot ‘n’ Murder and their fag buddies Anitfa freak out big time – I mean mostly peaceful demonstrations of the love of demoncracy – if Trumpenstein gets back into the Whore House (damned spell checker!).

            Watch law-abiding, God-loving, white people be accused of all kinds of crimes – from selling unpasteurized milk, to well, ummm, just being white – goddamn it, isn’t that bad enough?! “They hate Amerika!!”

            Watch Trumpenstein do nothing but pontificate. bloviate, and go to war with Iran.

        The Switch-a-roo is coming. Ive been predicting this for 3 years: Biden will be forced to step out and he will be replaced as the Democrat Communist Candidate by GAVIN NEWSOM with Gretchen Whitmer as Newsom’s VP.

        This will be announced at the DNC Convention so they can pull greasy hair up on stage for a big speech, and a hug from retiring Joe. Biden will be rewarded with a decca Million dollar severance/kickback in the form of book deals and a bio pic staring Jeff Daniels. He will be given glowing tributes in the Leftist rags like NYT and Wa Po and have a massive Presidential Library filled with classified documents.

        Ive predicted everything 100% correct since Trump announced in 2015. His win, Russia collusion hoax, impeachment I, Covid, Biden/Harris, Stolen election 2020, the “vaccine”, J6, impeachment II, Afghanistan debacle, war on oil, open border, Israel, Trump’s conviction…I have a 100% correct record on my predictions of US political events the past 9 years.

        Newsom / Whitmer will “win” the Presidency via obvious mail in ballot fraud, but the fix will be in and there will be nothing that anyone can do to stop it. The media, courts and tech will be complicit. They will be inaugurated in Jan. 2025 and Kamala Harris will be appointed their Attorney General. After that installation, they will go hard after SCOTUS, 1A, 2A and oil, with the intent of destroying all of it and with SCOTUS packing it with Marxist judges.

        Mark it down, its on.

      The word traitor is sorta weird right now. What is traitoress to me and MAGA types is mainstream Democrat dogma.

      That is the real problem, that cannot be fixed, IMHO. This country is split right down the middle with a gigantic group of gimme people, homeless, criminals that the Democratic Party has encouraged for votes for 50 years.

      The country needs to start dialogue to split in two, or 3, or 4 peaceably. It will not happen as the first degree split will occur between cities and everyone else. The cities, all democratic, cannot exist on their own and the Deep State knows it.

Even most of the patients I see in my clinic are raging angry at the blue states, feds and DC, and most are talking secession. Even the state legislature in my state has a committee to explore secession now that they have formed a gold depository and declared gold and silver to be valid money, along with 10 other states at last count. That is a prelude to secession, along with several adjacent states making laws that negate the ‘laws’ of the DC scumbags.

            I live in Idaho. A few hundred people would show up for the demonstrations against the Steal. ONLY one or two of the Republican state politicians would ever deign to show. Pretty disheartening on all levels.

            Secession. I always laugh when people throw this one out there. There are secession movements everywhere. I live in Utah. I don’t here of one here but many Utahns are sick of blue Salt Lake City controlling everything. I know Colorado has a secession movement to separated Denver from the rest of the state. I know eastern Oregon wants to become part of Idaho. Eastern Washington wants to become its own state with northern Idaho. There are proposals to divide California into three states, Northern California, Southern California and California. But, nothing ever happens. Why? Because the state legislatures won’t approve it and the people don’t really care, other than throwing out lips service and comments on the computer screen.

            Remember what Lincoln did when the south seceded? And it wasn’t about slavery. It was about the Morrill Tarriff and the Federal Government losing a sizeable chunk of its budget when the south departed. The Civil War was about money in the form of tariffs. I suspect if states tried to get out of the party the federal government would do the same thing.

            Secession…..meh..

            Secession will only arrive as a viable alternative after the dollar dies. After the dollar is dead there will be no benefits at all in being a citizen of the USA, just liabilities. The dollar is the only glue left holding it all together.

        We cannot expect the split to be peaceful, as the blue states will want the resources and taxes of the red states. The spilling of blood is always necessary for people to be free from tyrants. 100 million people, mostly in red states, have weapons (and not just grandpa’s shotgun) and the vast majority have training in their use. Once the blue states try to stop secession, these weapons will have to be used….with a vengeance.

        • Breck June 3, 2024 at 2:10 pm #

          Jarek: I’m from North Carolina but I’ve lived in Tennessee for the past 25 years after doing residency and fellowship training the bullshit ‘ivy league’ hell holes.
          Tennessee has passed the following laws within the past six months, many spearheaded by the committee to study secession: a gold and silver depository, law making gold and silver legal tender on par, status wise, with the worthless amerikan $, the legislature passed a law that says that any federal mandate or EO that violates the Tn constitution is immediately null and void. Once we dispose of the blue state foreigners who have wormed their way into power, things will get even better, and TN people are ready for secession. I should not have told about this as we don’t want any more people from blue states moving here. We have too many already. Realtors who facilitate their coming are in some serious trouble.

          “TPTB, have you listened to/read Sachs recently? He seems to have learned his lesson.

          Some of the most vocal opponents of the Beast have emerged from its belly.” ~ Blackbird

          **

          In Sachs own defense:
          Prof. Jeffrey D. Sachs * March 12, 2012 * Preliminary * Comments and Queries Most Welcome
          What I did in Russia
          static1.squarespace.com/static/5d59c0bdfff8290001f869d1/t/5ed7d8e248deea6dbee5d577/1591204091062/Sachs+%282012%29_What+I+did+in+Russia.pdf

          **

          As argued by Sachs about his experience in Russia, it seems that the West is experiencing similar today, where it boils down to that which Dalio pointed-out about the transition period in China, where various factions are vying for power to be able to impose their agenda (grand experiment / format for life) on the flock going forward.

          Is it unrealistic for leadership to present an honest assessment to the population? A new format for life is indeed a grand experiment, and if the flock is let-in-on-it, then human nature prompts individuals to hoard “toilet paper”.

          It appears that those who advocate for implementation of the 2030 Agenda have played their hand poorly, are at the point of failure, and rather than conceding, their lust for power may be the destruction/death of all of us.

          Both China and Russia have evolved through their transition period, and it is difficult to see how we will be as well-off in 30 years. Perhaps it will take 150 to 300 years, or more likely as you suggest, we “will all be swept into the BRICS capitalo-communist basket.”

          • TPTB-USA June 6, 2024 at 10:34 am #

            My read is that Sachs was the conduit through which the likes of Soros and Andrei Shleife raped Russia.

            Sachs promotes that he derived no benefit from the endeavor. I think an objective argument could be made that the venture provided Sachs with a gig job for which he received a salary and some benefits, with the ultimate goal of power to impose a grand experiment, essentially a new format for life for Russia and its citizens.

            Now, looking at this from Putin’s perspective, and that of a Russian citizen, is it any wonder that they don’t trust the West, especially when no one is held accountable.

            If do overs were allowed, would the population of Russia vote for Putin, or Sachs grand experiment?

    Greetings,

    Everything hinges on the unguarded transformers that feed the blue cities. Were those taken out by, say, some suicide drones such as we’re seeing in Ukraine then all the military might Uncle Sugar has at its disposal couldn’t stop the chaos as millions of military-aged invaders ravage the blue cities until there is nothing left but a burnt husk.

    If you live in or near a blue city then I’d suggest voting with your feet and getting yourself somewhere safe.

        You can have fleets of wonder weapons but if you have no fuel to run them then they are useless as the Germans learned in WWII. Well, the blue cities are the democratic party and if you took its fuel away then it would implode. Anyone military-minded knows that you go after the easy targets – the “soft” targets. After all, a fully fueled, crewed, and armed Tiger tank is difficult to defeat but fairly harmless once the fuel is gone.

        Hamas and the Mexican drug cartels both have weapons that were meant for Ukraine. Given that 70% of what we send to Ukraine vanishes on the black market, we can only imagine how much of that is now in the hands of extremists here.

        A simple white prosperous grenade dropped from a drone will render one of these large transformers irreparable. A couple of nationalists armed in this manner could turn a place like Chicago into Mad Max Land.

    And the latest China/cartel Joe gambit is grant amnesty to the millions of mostly military aged men illegal invaders, which will guarantee their presence on our streets with antifa and blm, since Trump has promised to send them all back. The Demoncraps will no doubt call them out for chaos, mayhem, destruction, and even murder in order to stop Trump. If that fails, then their assassination teams are standing by. Safety is better with firearms, ammo, and training. Antifa, blm, and the illegals look for those who cannot resist, so being armed is your best bet to stay safe, as there are few places, maybe none, where your safety is guaranteed.

      SCOTUS said “NO” to Joe Biden’s student loan forgiveness fiasco. Joe Biden then pulled an Andy Jackson and did it anyway.

      Even if the SCOTUS stepped in and slapped this madness down, which they won’t, but even if they did, nobody would listen to them anyway. Few there be that respect them. I mean, who respects Amy Barrett or Ketanji Brown. Who respects the two fat slobs Sotomayor and Kagan?

      Brett Cavanaugh, Roberts and Gorsuch? Who are these bums?

      The only two justices that one can respect are Thomas and Alito and both of them are under constant attack.

      The SCOTUS needs to be moved out of their big fancy building and put back into the basement of the Capitol where they belong.

      • Blackbird June 3, 2024 at 8:42 pm #

        It was the Big Guy who made sure that student loans would be inexcusable in the first place. Now he turns around and pretends to be the savior. Yes sheep, this way to freedom!

        Just make student loans subject to forgiveness via bankruptcy like any other kind of debt.

        But no, debt-slavery is too valuable a tool.

      Bill Ayers, Obama’s BFF, is still alive and smirking. He has been dreaming of violent chaos all his life, so that he and his communist pals can have their revolution, kill off a bunch of us, and impose totalitarian hell on everyone remaining. Watch that clip of Larry Grathwohl again if you can still find it on YouTube. He was the FBI infiltrator of Bill Ayers’ organization. (Back in the days when the FBI actually FOUGHT communism, rather than enabled it!)

    Article title on Lew Rockwell reflects my sentiments: The US government does not run the empire’s never ending wars the empire’s never ending wars run the US government. The MICIMAT is what is in charge. The Kubuki election theatre will not change that.
    Looks like the insane MICIMAT complex wants war with Russia. The importance of Trump vs Biden will be insignificant when that happens, which looks increasingly likely.

          Although I would leave out Congressional, they pretty much do what they’re told. Acacademia and media are pretty much tools too that serve the Military Industrial Intelligence complex. In my opinion Intelligence heads the list as to where the real power lies in terms of the US, but they’re all intertwined.

          It’s why foreign policy never changes no matter how bad it is for the country. Read the article on Rockwell.

    I propose an unbiased, unambiguous statistical assay of the American spirit: Are online ammo suppliers suddenly selling “Out of Stock”?

    • dilbert113 June 3, 2024 at 10:24 am #

      Smart gun owners stocked up on ammunition long ago. The idea that one can disarm the citizenry by limiting the supply of ammunition for sale does not take that into account. Frankly, if all ammunition sales were stopped right now, a decade later many people would have thousands of rounds tucked away in their homes, and ammunition can last for a very long time and still be potent, if properly stored.

        Maybe a century or two from now we’ll be living in an 1800’s type low tech lifestyle and we’ll be using locally made black powder and locally or even home made lead bullets cast in basements and garages. We’d be using primitive gas or even coal fired furnaces for heating up chunks of recycled lead. Just as our forefathers did well over a century or two ago. In a world made by hand why won’t we have hand made bullets and home made gun powder?

        Get some of these brass, reloadable SG shells: buffaloarms.com/reloading-supplies-accessories/reloadable-brass-cases-hulls/brass-shotgun-shells.html

        Similar heavy, thick walled brass shells are available for most large caliber rifles. I don’t think smaller stuff like .22 or .223 would allow these types of “permanent” shell casings.

        Most conventional cases can be reloaded many times. As long as there is material left to trim at the neck and the primer pocket is intact…

        You cannot reload berdan primed or steel casings, so purchase new ammo accordingly…

    Here is a hard truth that the Socialist/Fascist/Communist Democrat scum elite know, but will never acknowledge or accept: conservative, pro-freedom, anti-dictatorship Americans are not the type to unilaterally engage in offensive actions against government–indeed, conservatives always talk of defensive strategies against tyranny.

    So, the entire Democrat scum strategy is to engage in tyranny egregious enough to cause conservatives to rise to physical defense, then the Democrat scum can falsely call it an “offensive” action, then enact Martial Law, suspend habeas corpus, and the Democrat scum can then go on the full OFFENSIVE to persecute, imprison, and exterminate their conservative opposition. It’s a Hitler-type strategy.

    The fatal mistake that the Democrat scum will make, however, is in assuming that conservatives will just sit and take it when the Democrat scum offensive really gets going. They will then find out that conservatives (and most moderates, too) are more than willing to DEFEND their lives, freedom, property and country using extreme violence, if necessary, against enemies–foreign or domestic–who intend to deprive them of those things most dear to them.

    JHK is correct–once those dogs of war are unleashed, the only certainly will be that will be millions of dead Americans.

        Do you think the Rothschilds. Rockefeller’s, Soros groups are Capitalists? Do they use their capital to build or destroy? Capitalists build capital by taking risks, do you think these International Bank people take risks? Or just swing politics in their favor?

        • Jarek June 3, 2024 at 3:18 pm #

          Why take a risk when you don’t have to? Earlier Capitalists and Bankers actually invested in ventures, say ships going to the Indies for spices. If the ship sank, they lost everything. Later, they began to come up with limited liability contracts. They already had usury – you’re against that, right?

          And of course the Crown Jewel was the ability to create money out of nothing a la the Federal Reserve Act in the United States.

          The purpose of Capitalism is to make money. They’re passed the risk stage and are going for owning everything. There’s some risk in that, perhaps. But so far very little pushback except by the Hero in Germany.

        Among the uneducated “younger American” females I know, the majority are whoring themselves out on OnlyFans – the few under 200 lbs anyway. The guys are stoned*, drunk, and stupid. And both sexes (alas, there are only two…) spend their meager income on piercings and tattoos, and pollute their minds with rape rap, even though many of them “support” Trump – meaning they like guns. At least they can be counted on – maybe – to open fire on our blessed “newcomers” and the Feds when the time comes.

    One of the things I’m finding very hard to take is the burning stupidity surrounding the verdict against Trump.

    I’ve been reading some commentary on the case to understand more about what occurred. Some replies are helpful and add more detail that the average person might not know.

    Then there are the empowered morons. They will assert that even if the payoffs were not illegal, the crime was the coverup and the lies.

    I have seen many such versions of the same canned remarks. They get the talking point and run with it.

    There are clips of interviews by Megyn Kelly with various people heretofore thought intelligent (such as Bill Maher) where they argue with her over things such as what Trump did wrong or what happened January 6, and even when she smacks them in the face with the truth, even with video, they still won’t concede that they have been wrong.

    I don’t know who this Dan Abrams person is. I just wonder, as I have wondered often in life, where do people who must know they aren’t fully informed on an issue get the nerve to argue about it?

    “Megyn Kelly exhibits how to debate mainstream media talking points regarding Trump’s verdict:
    Dan Abrams: “There’s wrongdoing here.”
    MK: “What was it?”
    DA: “Paying 130k to a porn star to keep her quiet.”
    MK: “That’s not illegal.”
    DA: “When you’re doing it to protect the campaign, and you are spending money on it, you are now crossing the line into legal problems.”
    MK: “Absolutely not correct on every level.”
    DA: “When you’re doing it to protect your campaign, it is [illegal].
    MK: “What law are you citing?”
    DA: “Campaign finance laws.”

      I mostly have given up debating or listening to liberals. What’s that saying about the ease of fooling a person, but the difficulty of anyone ever admitting to being fooled?

        “I mostly have given up debating or listening to liberals.”

        Good strategy. Why invite frustration and conflict? Turn your back and let them pontificate to the walls.

        But don’t call them “liberals”. They have no interest in freedom – of thought, speech, choice, association. They are leftists. They want to impose their will. The exact opposite of a liberal.

      “It does not amount to a campaign contribution if it is the kind of payment that could ever be made outside of the campaign context.”

      Absolutely. So Hillary’s funding of “the Steele Dossier” was absolutely a “campaign expense,” since the ONLY reason she paid to have that “dossier” manufactured was to defeat her opponent in the 2016 presidential election.

      But nothing to see there, move along.

    As the Hunter Biden trial begins for his illegal possession of a firearm, “President” Biden states that he has ‘boundless love’ for his son.

    “I am the President, but I am also a Dad. Jill and I love our son, and we are so proud of the man he is today. Hunter’s resilience in the face of adversity and the strength he has brought to his recovery are inspiring to us,” Biden said in the statement as jury selection got underway.

    “A lot of families have loved ones who have overcome addiction and know what we mean,” the president said.

    “As the President, I don’t and won’t comment on pending federal cases, but as a Dad, I have boundless love for my son, confidence in him, and respect for his strength,” he said. “Our family has been through a lot together, and Jill and I are going to continue to be there for Hunter and our family with our love and support.”

    —–

    Yep, and many of us regular Americans have boundless love for the political persecution that Trump is going through. He gives us strength and inspiration.

    How much you want to bet that the charges against Hunter are thrown out or somehow totally watered down into a big nothing burger? Indeed, we live in a multi-layered judicial system that is not blind or evenly applied to all.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: The people won’t act until they start missing some meals. In today’s society, not paying for essentials is very acceptable. But not being able to eat will cause people to take action. We haven’t reached that point yet, so expect nothing more than threats or minor unrest for now. I’m sorry to say this, but the general populace is pretty dumb – they have no idea how bad things can or will get.

    I speak from my own experience. I unfortunately live in a very liberal area. I have yet to hear one person not cheering Trump’s travails. It’s so bad here everyone just assumes I’m happy with the Trump situation. It would be too draining to argue with them, so I grit my teeth and don’t say anything.

    I’m unhappy with the people around here and would like to move out of the area. I could do that but I have family here, and at my age, it would take too much work to start over. It’s my choice, though, and I’ll try to find an acceptable alternative.

    In the meantime, I just meditate to get through the day happily.

    Ha, watching Fauci in the Congress.

    What impresses me is that he is actually saying that they had no real idea what to do and just made stuff up that the Deep State used to control us for two years and just about destroy the country.

    He will not dismiss the possibility that COVID came from the Wuhan lab, but then says that the NIH was not funding any work on coronaviruses. Uh, did the Chinese work on coronaviruses without NIH knowledge? No answer.

    His statement on the vaxx is that they saved millions of lives. That is a lie, period, the fatality rate of Covid would never kill that many folks. The real question, not asked so far, is how many more people, as Bill Gates head virologist has said, will the vaxx kill than would have died from covid itself. Every asshole in the Deep State should be indicted for manslaughter that supported the vaxx and isolation mandates.

        I think that it is a matter of one of two things with Trump.

        His attention was on his Impeachments and he just did not pay attention, throwing it over the fence to Pence, who was pleasantly trying to figure out how to stab Trump in the back.

        Two, his incompetence regarding medicine made him dependent on Pence/Fauci/Birx for direction. He was a fool to believe them without challenge, without consulting with “the other side” that was sending warnings out big time.

        Inattention or incompetence, hmmm sounds like a disease that originates in the water of the Potomac river.

        Trump making noise about “revenge” is music in my ears. I want him to attack Fauci and Pence.

        • JohnAZ June 3, 2024 at 9:22 pm #

          I do believe that Trump was POTUS and was ultimately responsible for everything.

        There was NO way that Trump would have not been forced to work with Fauci and also authorize “Warp Speed” in 2020 when the “pandemic” was unleashed. NO way. He would have been skewered and immediately impeached and removed from office had he refused to follow protocol. Im not defending him but people who blame him for the jabs seem to forget how toxic the environment was towards him and they would have used any excuse to get him out. He would have been gone by June, 2020 had he refused to follow their protocols.

        Trump does not know chit about medicine. I studied up on coronviruses and the history of failed vaccines and mRNA technology as soon as the virus hit the main land. The data was there for anyone to see: There has NEVER been and never will be a successful vaccine for a coronavirus. The virus simply mutates around the vaccine and weakens as laid out in Mullers Ratchet. Covid was destined to peter out on its own, which it did. I knew that in Jan. 2020. NI and early treatment was the only way forward.

        I knew much more than he did…so he can be faulted with ignorance.

        • C.O.Jones June 4, 2024 at 9:29 am #

          I see your point ET777 but can Trump not see the damage – the ongoing damage caused by his warp speed rushing to jab Americans and the world? The body count is increasing every day and he is completely unfazed, defiantly proclaiming his success in saving “hundreds of millions of lives.”

          The point you make about the toxic environment oppressing Trump is a very valid point. I keep asking my Trump fanatic friends what makes them think it would be any different if he held office again.

          Those friends tell me “Trump got rolled” by Fauci, Birx et al. I don’t argue the point with them instead insisting I want a president smart enough and principled enough not to accept a check from Pfizer and step aside to let the crimes against humanity take place. “Got rolled” my ass.

          Trump’s ego would never permit him to admit he got rolled so it’s easier for him to proclaim sunshine and blue skies on the way even though he and Alex Jones are the only ones making that forecast.

          I’m trying to get any of my Trumpian friends to make a cash bet on who he picks as a running mate. Sentient beings who have heretofore resisted considering Trump to be deep state are going to have a bout of cognitive dissonance that knocks them off their feet when he picks a WEF swamp rat to be his VP.

      The covid psyop wasn’t a public health operation – it was a military operation.

      Fresh off the press from Sasha Latypova, a cross posting from Debbie Lerman.

      “I am cross posting for my readers. It is important to understand that what you were watching all day today hoping for some justice was a clown show titled “535 clowns and 1 buffoon, or Fauci in Congress”. Fauci was not in charge of the covid policy, he is just a chew toy for the public. It’s the Nat’l Sec Council who need to be brought in for questioning if you want real justice.” (Sasha Latypova)

      I can’t recommend Sasha Latypova enough. She, Katherine Watt (paralegal who has traced the legal history of the military’s current ability to dictate the pharma-depop operation) and Mike Yeadon have the whole thing sewn up.

        According to Bobby Kennedy in his book The Real Anthony Fauci, Fauci was the money guy, directing funds to those who would do the research he wanted performed. Trump then stood down while the media anointed Fauci to be the oracle of all scientific knowledge.

        Mike Yeadon has been telling the truth from the start of this psyop. I am not familiar with the other 2 you mentioned GreenAlba but I’m off to research them.

    Why There Aren’t Enough Americans to Fix This FUBAR

    Last night I happened to notice that The Duran Show interviewed the incomparable Dimitry Orlov. I normally don’t watch this show because one of the owners is Alexander Mercouris, who is so in love with the sound of his own voice, as to be an insufferable bore.

    But in the instance of this show with Mr. Orlov, Mercouris somehow managed to control his self, ask a question, and then shut the F-up! And what he asked Dimitry was, basically, “How is it that Russia has kept its body politic together in a functioning society and economy, while America has not?”.

    Mr. Orlov began his answer by pointing out that in every city and town, and even little village, there is a shrine (and not a small one) dedicated to the memory of the people who perished in the great war Russia (i.e. the USSR) fought with Nazi Germany. And, these shrines and monuments are kept in immaculate condition and they are often festooned with fresh flowers.

    Mr. Orlov explained that this dedication on the part of the Russian people to their past history is much like a popular cult. They take it very seriously. Hence it is a tangible way of uniting the people in a common cause. Especially in the current war with the West.

    I thought of this when, in one of CankerPuss’s posts, he opined that there were not enough Americans willing to join together in opposing this current threat to our republic. Not enough of them are hurting enough (yet). They’re still buying big houses, riding around in ridiculously huge pickups that get 7 mpg in town, and are unaffected by the lawlessness abroad in the land.

    In his interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Tucker Carlson was baffled when Mr. Putin spent 20 minutes on reciting a history of the Russian people, which he showed goes back 1,000 years. Mr. Carlson’s bafflement is not surprising really. He is an American, and his country is barely 250 years old.

    Furthermore, as Mr. Orlov pointed out, Russia has been invaded multiple times in that long history (as recently as 1941). The deaths of millions of their fellow countrymen has concentrated the average Russian’s mind wonderfully. It has effectively extinguished any kind of delusions about what Life really IS. Which is why Russians have not put up with the ridiculous craziness now infecting the West.

    As recently as 1991, Russia (once more Russia, and not the Soviet Union), experienced real deprivation and crisis, while their native oligarchs robbed the country of its riches. What’s the recent motto? ‘Hard times breed strong men’?

    America is going to have to go through some of the things Russia has experienced, in order to have the Russians’ kind of realistic, sober understanding. ‘Growing up is hard to do’. Right? Watch your children, or grand-children, as they grow up. There are no short-cuts really; and if they try to take them, they never grow up. Americans will need to really grow up.

          As usual, you bring up an interesting historical point ‘Heck.

          During the Mongol invasion, Kievan Rus (today’s southern Russia and the Ukraine) resisted the Mongols and was crushed. Novgorod (today’s northern Russia) accepted Mongol overlordship and was spared invasion and occupation.

          I was disappointed that Putin didn’t mention this important piece of history in his education of Tucker Carlson. But of course it wouldn’t make the kind of points Putin wanted to – or had time to – make.

    “… you might have noticed that this is not a sane world, at least not these days…”

    I’m looking forward to the day when we finally enter through Those Pearly Gates in the Heavenly Realm and the assembled souls up there tell us with a sly smile on their faces…

    ‘Did you really believe any of the crap down there on Earth? Don’t you see? It was all nonsense just to challenge you and test your cognitive abilities. None of that sh*t means a damn thing (yes, you allowed to use colorful language Up There).

    All this stuff can seem so important. It can seem so serious and monumental. But in the grand scheme of things… none of these Worldly events means a damn thing. The only thing that does matter is how we treat ourselves and each other – the precious hours we share with loved ones or helping others along in their own journey is all that matters.

    Biden? Trump? Politics? Who gives a Flying F? These overhyped fossils and the useless political class itself are way passed their Milk ‘Best Buy’ date and should be playing with their great grandkids or finding a life and staying out of the way of the rest of us. Just go away… please.

    Just like Doctor Death and his self-applauding nonsense before Congress and all the other Distraction People who are endlessly trotted out before the American People on American State Media. All to get our attention off things that really do matter and to make us feel powerless and unimportant except for our role as being tools of the Puppet Masters.

    “With each subsequent prank, to distract from and cover-up their crimes, the same group of officials has committed more crimes, to the point that the federal government now behaves like a gigantic mafia, dedicated to nothing but crime of one kind or another.”

    Since our Earth at times more seems to resemble Hell than Heaven… this kind of abuse and effery from The Powerful is not surprising. If it is the intention to create a Clown World Planet run by fools and cons… we got just the Planet for you. And countless numbers of grifters and lackeys and connivers to keep the Effery going strong. Generation after generation of The Effery-Causing Class… and the Abuse-ees aka all the rest of us.

    “… So, there it is: a criminal regime versus the people defended by their outlaw hero.”

    Since even if Our Hero (some would say) gets in… it won’t matter matter. The Great Dark State Deep State Machine wont let him do anything to solve anything. They will fight and restrict and sideline anything useful that Our Hero (some would say) might try to do.

    In fact, one might draw upon and slightly revise the famous words of Shakespeare to describe Our Times today and the nonsensical political theater of distraction that is sucking up all the air in the room.

    Our events today are all, “Tales told by Idiots, full of sounds and fury Signifying nothing.”

    You want to do something today that will actually matter? Hug your kids. Talk with your neighbors and never mention politics. Plant a tree. Go for a walk. Help a little old lady to cross a busy street…

    And stay off for as long as you can stand to Your Magic Small Box of Dancing Pixels. Otherwise known as our ‘Instrument Of Obedience’ or Adult-baby Pacifier and Blankey. The grand peddler of anti-social toxins and State-sponsored effery.

    Trump wont save you. Biden is an empty vessel. Your phone wont save you. Only we humans can save ourselves… by BEING truly human.

      I agree with this, RS.

      In a post further above this thread I stated that best thing we can do is what we can control. Ourselves. We need to make ourselves right with whatever God we worship, being the Christian God, the Jewish God, nature, whatever. The problem with our society isn’t the government or the politicians. They are a bright reflection of the people. The problems with our society is US.

      There would be no drug cartels if Americans weren’t buying drugs.

      There would be no abortions if men and women stopped having irresponsible and unmarried sex.

      There would be no pornography if people stopped paying for it.

      I could go on and on.

      No amount of laws is going to cure what ails our society. No politician or strong man is going to fix everything.

      We as a people have become greedy, decadent, envious, slothful and immoral. A godless society obsessed with self and self only. What we should be doing is loving our children, staying committed to the well being of our spouse, teaching humility and learning to love and care for our neighbor.

      We must first fix ourselves before we can fix anything else.

      Excellent post, RS.

        But now I have written to you, not to keep company, if any man that is named a brother, be a fornicator, or covetous, or a server of idols, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner: with such a one, not so much as to eat. For what have I to do to judge them that are without? Do not you judge them that are within? For them that are without, God will judge. Put away the evil one from among yourselves.
        1 Corinthians 5: 11-13

          Jarek: “Come out from among them. Let the dead bury the dead. Sometimes love means hating evil and those who are evil.”

          Some in this World view love as being wimpy or naive. On the contrary, true and honest Love is radically powerful and the greatest force in Universe.

          Love does not have to mean making longing eyes at someone you want to next to. As Sages have long pointed out… love is not just another angle of trying to get something you want from someone else (because that is not love but self-promotion).

          Love does the tough things. It stands strong when problems arise. It refuses to be compromised when there are so many easier choices one might retreat in to. Love makes you do things not even necessarily because you want to – but because it is the right way to respond in order to help someone else.

          Love is probably the most mistaken human emotion. Hollywood highjacked love and turned into something silly. When real love is nothing like that.

          Love means accepting someone else for who they are without the need to change them. Love means setting an example for others without the demand that the other must follow you into doing any particular thing or sharing any certain belief.

          Love means accepting and caring for yourself as well. Not in a self-seeking or indulgent way but in knowing that you have been given the great gift of Life and you need to honor yourself and work to be your very best if you are to help others in the best ways you can.

          When you look at politics today from any angle… do you see any form of Love or do you see nothing but hate? I’m not advocating some kind of silly love-in with everyone but just the simple human thing of not hating someone else because they see the World differently from you. Each and every one of us has a unique experience of growing up with a mixture of influences and teachers in various forms – and so our World view and our perception of others and ourselves is not… CAN not… be the same from person to person.

          That does not mean you don’t defend yourself or compromise what you choose to believe. There is such a thing as Truth.

          But what Love does require is that each of us as humans will treat every other human being AS human – having value and worth (even if that is tough for us to easily see sometimes).

          The Beatles told us, ‘All You Need Is Love’.

          Well, that may not be everything we need. But it’s a damn good start. Hate the Evil… but don’t become the evil yourself.

          One measure of love is in how much you choose to ‘love’ others when that is a tough thing for you to do. Because that ability is a great measure of your own character.

            Yeah, good. The higher morality. Forgetest you not the lower. As Jefferson said, Survival is the first morality. All other moral question wait on that. How so? Because they are for the living, not the dead.

            Google Sir Arthur Keith, the Law of Amity and Enmity. One for your own people and the other for enemies. Hint: The higher love is a matter for individual, not those organizations of collective bargaining known as nations. They insure our individual survival so we can climb Jacob’s ladder into higher levels of being, morality and love being the sine qua none of these.

            Jarek: “As Jefferson said, Survival is the first morality. All other moral question wait on that. How so? Because they are for the living, not the dead.”

            Survive, of course. But ‘The Other’ also subscribes to this imperative to survive. And that insures the ongoing conflict and warfare among opposing sides. That never seems to end… because with these drivers it cannot.

            Something has to break this pattern of being caught in an endless loop of conflict and violence. And what breaks this? Refusing to buy in to or play that game. Either, citizens as individuals or an enlightened Nation who finally ‘gets it’.

            All Nations believe they should survive. Our question for them must be, ‘WHY?’. It is up to the Nation as a collective to show why it is worthy of survival as such or just be another desperate flailing collective of annoyed confusion committed to endless conflict and citizen abuse.

            “Survival is the first morality.”

            The extremely popular youtube vlogger Bald and Bankrupt crossed the Darien Gap, the first person to do so while filming it. Brutal five day journey, dealing with narcos, other fellow travelers suspicious of he and his companion’s motivations, and, of course, disease, injury, starvation, lack of clean water, exhaustion.

            Nearing the end, after some in the group had died or were stranded, Bald’s buddy showed “Love” by giving away his last can of tuna to a man struggling to continue — this, while the both of them, exhausted, had likewise run out of food and water.

            Bald chastised his companion, then said to the camera, in effect, “it’s all well and good to show love when circumstances permit, but when TSHTF, we’re all selfish”.

            Cankerpuss: “If one is of the Christian persuasion then they would know that we are to love all and to hate none… Personally, I try to hate the sin and love the sinner… We must have no tolerance for evil but we should strive to love those who are evil.”

            Even though this may seem like a contradiction in terms, one does not have to LIKE someone else to LOVE them… especially those with whom we might greatly disagree.

            What? Huh? Well, one can dislike anything you choose about someone else if you want or need to… but you still acknowledge the fundamental human value and worth that Our Creator places into every living thing. Even those we don’t like.

            Many people today are just damaged goods. Really effed up. They do not truly know who or what they are. They had some bad ideas hard-wired into them at some point and they choose not to know anything else. They can choose lies over truth and not miss a beat.

            Do we ‘blame’ a person when they are physically sick or having a disease? Why would we do that? The ill person is facing a malady that he or she likely wishes they never had.

            So it is with spiritual disease and mental deviancy. Very many people today are spiritually sick. And while each of us is always responsible for our thoughts and deeds… these spiritually sick people have a big problem whether they understand that or not. And they are lost in darkness.

            Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.”

            Every one of us is ‘sick’ to some degree. And we all need healing and to awaken from our missteps and bad choices and thinking.

            Piling on to each other out of anger or frustration or tribal loyalty doesn’t serve either party and adds fuel to a toxic spiritual fire.

          If one is of the Christian persuasion then they would know that we are to love all and to hate none. God makes the sun shine on both the righteous and the wicked. Personally, I try to hate the sin and love the sinner.

          The best example of this was when the adulteress was brought before Christ and demanded that he pronounce justice upon her. His response was the famous “he who is without sin, let him cast the first stone.” What is often forgotten is what Christ then did with the adulteress. Did he condone her adultery sins? No. Did he pat her on the head and tell her it was okay because she had a bad husband? No. Did he tell her she’s worthless and to get lost? No. He basically told her that he hadn’t condemned her and then he said the most important words. “Go Thou and Sin No More.”

          Christ loved the woman but he despised the sin and he admonished her to cease the sinful life.

          We must have no tolerance for evil but we should strive to love those who are evil. The only difference between a righteous person and an evil person is that the righteous person seeks to repent and become better.

          It is NOT and easy task and one that I certainly have NOT learned to master for I truly hate the elites who are attempting to foist their dystopia upon us.

            This helps me. Perhaps it can also help you:

            I see that the evil elites who are attempting to foist their dystopia upon us as merely actors playing their role in fulfilling God’s Word.

            God has promised us 1,000 years of King Jesus rule where the lion and the lamb live in peace … but only after Trials & Tribulations.

            The only path to and past His glorious Judgement Day is through their evil Beast System. That is, their horrible actions are “a necessary evil” to get where we’re going.

            Do not hate them. Rather, know that God will mete His perfect judgement on all of us.

            OG: “… evil elites who are attempting to foist their dystopia upon us…”

            These Evil Elitists are actually babies or very young children. What do babies do when they don’t get their way? They cry, yell and scream. They do not reason. They are demanding and selfish. They do not care about others around them. A baby sees the World through only one window: ‘ME – ME- ME! And what I WANT!’

            That’s what Elitists are. Pathetic ‘adults’ who have no intention of ever growing up and being responsible human beings who live not just for self but for others as well.

            So Our World is being run by immature babies who will never grow up.

            They are to be shunned and pitied more than hated.

            So just spank them? No, execute. Abject foolishness on display here. God will justly judge them. No one is lost forever. You don’t have to try and play God with some idea of absolute justice and absolute forgiveness. Those are beyond our power.

            Prabhupad defended capital punishment as a great mercy. Execution for real crimes mitigates much of the karma that would otherwise have to be dealt with after death – in a much harsher and longer way.

            Hanging, Guillotine, and Firing Squad are both quick and reliable. “Feminine” lethal injection (justice dressed up a medicine) is agonizing and unreliable. Techno-nonsense, yesterday’s tomorrow, the lectric chair, is reliable but slow. Old ways are best…..

            Part of repentance [ change mind ] is in acknowledging our forgiveness, which obligates us to others who have sinned against us. If we desire justification, we owe it to all others that seek it.

            God wants us to forgive others. And if we harbor unforgiveness and hatred in our hearts toward others, then it is apparent that we have not truly repented of our sins and therefore God will not forgive us.

            Being justified is a [ legal ] status [ our Benefactor wears rose- colored glasses ] to allow us to become sanctified, which takes a while.

          • Roundball Shaman June 5, 2024 at 6:33 pm #

            messianicdruid: “God wants us to forgive others. And if we harbor unforgiveness and hatred in our hearts toward others, then it is apparent that we have not truly repented of our sins…”

            It’s easy to love people who are like ‘we’ are. It’s easy to like people who are ‘like we are’. It’s not so easy to treat others that are and think and live differently from the ways we choose to be. It’s not so easy to decently treat those who have hurt or harmed us in some way. And that’s the whole point of this human experiment. It’s a measure of our own true humanity – or a lack of that.

            Everything we do and say will one day disappear. And soon. Everything everyone else does or does to us will likewise disappear from the apparent Universe. Events in themselves do not last – but what endures is the cosmic measure of how we lived our lives and what kind of persons we have been. This is all held with Divine Mind from which all things spring forth in the first place.

            Someone hurt somebody else one hundred years ago. No one today knows what that event was or why – or even who was involved. All that was consumed and painted-over by all the events that came after. BUT… whatever the offense was created a further chain of events that DOES live to this day in a thread of events that was set loose. And which will echo for all of Time.

            As I indicated above, the way we choose to treat others is a measure of OUR character – one’s own nature. We don’t have to ‘like’ anyone in particular or even seek consensus with them. We just have to treat them as human beings – that is, equals as having a spark of divinity within.

            And if we don’t… we need to examine why we have such a lack of love within our own heart.

            Forgiveness is not ‘surrender’ or an act of condoning anything. Instead, forgiveness is an act of radical courage. And the best measure of who we are as a person.

    “summer’s here and the time is right for fighting in the streets.”

    I think it might be worthwhile to consider that summer is indeed here, but that this season is a part of a broader pattern of institutional decline involving our society, market institutions, and the increasing role of finance and the blob.

    Once upon a time in the US there was a positive feedback cycle between increasing freedom, growing factor markets (especially land and labor) and economic growth, which then turned into a negative one ( reaching a type of tipping point) followed by increasing social polarization with more and more accumulated economic wealth being translated into more and more political and legal leverage.

    Milton Friedman, back in the early 1960s pushed the idea that markets would offer the potential for increasing decentralized decision-making among the general population but the result, instead, has been more and more centralized decision-making combined with high wealth inequality.

    Consequently there has been a stagnation of well-being among ordinary people. As JHK and many of the commentariat have mentioned the probability of some kind of social revolt is increasing but if it is to be something more positive and productive than incoherent rage a key question needs to be answered– can an open society and a market economy be reconstructed in a period of decline?

    It seems to be the case that at the beginning of the development of market economies prosperity grew and was widely distributed because the associations of ordinary people were strong. Are we capable of beginning to rebuild and create new associations starting in 2024?

    I’m looking for another clip of Chris “Fredo” Cuomo making an ass of himself, because it makes me less despondent to share such things.

    Meanwhile I want to share something quite thinky.

    Jeffrey Tucker has been documenting a lot of things regarding Trump and covid, which makes some people really angry with him, but I think he is doing a great job not to be partisan or biased against Trump.

    Here he branches out a little, with a good question about what was it Trump did to bring down all the hate on him.

    A lot of people will give you as a reason something Trump allegedly did, that they learned from the MSM well after he was running, but the thing is, many of these people already hated him and went searching for a justification, even if they had to make one up.

    Here is Jeffrey’s question, which he posed on X:

    What specifically and actually did Trump do to earn the rage and wrath of certain ruling-class elites? What are his real crimes? I’ve reduced this to three things. Add yours.

    1. He won the presidency in 2016 without permission
    2. He fired FBI head James Comey in 2018 without permission.
    3. He issued 4 executive orders that tried to restrain and control the civil service, the most extreme of which came a fortnight before the 2020 election.

    x.com/jeffreyatucker/status/1796642557255970966

    I personally didn’t understand how some of his remarks about things like NATO were ruining some people’s grand plans. I don’t think Trump did either.

  29. Beryl of Oyl June 3, 2024 at 1:55 pm #

    This is kind of deep:

    “Trump is despised because he explicitly rejects the norms of his birth class in favor of a “lower” class. And he does it for aesthetic reasons (because he can).

    Ironically, this is the most elite thing you can do. Which again ironically puts him at the top of his class. He wins a status game in his own class by rejecting the norms of his own class. Could not be more elite, and it drives his peers insane.

    Let me set it out for you.

    Society has 4 classes. The classes are not divided by wealth but by their values, what they aspire to, who they worship/villainize.

    Underclass, working class, academic/managerial class, inheritor class.

    The inheritor class is the only class you cannot move into, you have to be born into it. It’s also the smallest class at <1% of people.

    Nearly all of history is written about, by, and for the inheritor class. This class is concerned above all with taste. Everything is measured by how tasteful it is, or how “seemly.” It’s not what you do, but how seemly/tasteful you do it.

    When Trump adopts the crass mannerisms and “tell it like it is” ethos of the working class, he is explicitly rejecting the refined culture that has come to dominate the inheritor class of today. His aesthetics, the gold toilets, his sexual partners, is also explicitly a rejection of inheritor class aesthetics.

    People in the inheritor class generally do not understand the other classes at all. They don’t interact with them, and they have no mental model for their actions. “Why would they do that? They’re like animals, so uncivilized” etc. This lack of understanding leads to a profound disgust with the other people in society. That disgust turns to rage, and a kind of seething nihilistic hatred for these other people as well.

    There is much to say about why this has happened, but I’m focused on Trump. It is an interesting conversation though. Nobility has given way to Aristocracy, yes even America had Nobles.

    That Trump decides, he chooses (the only real power we have, how we spend our time) to be with and like these people. And not in a flenuer style, but in an actual appreciation of it.

    It drives the mainstay inheritor class people insane.

    He could not commit a more serious crime against his own people than to be with and among these other classes. He is the ultimate status and class traitor. A true sigma from the perspective of the inheritor class.

    Also his break from inheritor class norms represents an existential threat to the class itself. Because the class is so dependent on taste, whimsy, and seemliness, if something other than existential nihilism takes hold, it could upend the entire form of all of society. (Cc met gala Anna wintour theme)

    This existential risk (which is Lindy) is why they will stop at nothing to destroy him. And not just the person, the entire symbology of him. They will erase him from history. They’ve taken a somewhat idiosyncratic, frankly ineffective modern political/business leader, and turned him into a Legend. Trump the man is being replaced with Trump the idea.

    And Trump the man has fully committed to seeing this transition through.

    Katechon? Depends on whom you ask."

      In the ancient West, including Europe, the feudal arrangement of society was dominant. The inheritor class before the industrial revolution were the old European blue blood families. A royal family ruled all the other blue blood families of lesser rank. That royal family also ruled the serfs and owned their land, along with ruling the merchants and the mechanics and tradesmen. It was an insect like or beehive arrangement with a royal queen who lived with every need taken care of by attendants in the royal palace. Her lifestyle was intensely focused on taste, luxury, and comfort. Or could we say she almost lived like a pope would. Her job was to produce princes and a crown prince who would be up to the job of owning, running, and protecting the “hive” for the centuries to come. Dynasties think about the future in terms of centuries, not mere decades as in a republic.

      In the West the Pope ruled at the top of the pyramid of power. If a king wished to be crowned in the way that celebrated the belief in the divine right of kings to rule and own their lands – that crown was placed on his head by an archbishop or even a pope. Kings and emperors were expected to go to mass just like everyone else, they didn’t have religious freedom like we have today. An openly atheistic king or duke in the Middle Ages wouldn’t have lasted long at his post – he had a boss, and it was pope so-and-so he sometimes found himself negotiating with. The priestly class was like the worker bees in the hive, they weren’t to be out making babies or fighting. They were the effeminate male class that inherited nothing yet the pope lived in spendid surroundings. Henry VIII was one of the tiny few who told the pope to eff off and this one act of defiance made for huge social changes in his kingdom.

      But now everything has changed. In the USA we pride ourselves on not having a class of blue bloods who inherit power and wealth. Instead we have a class of wealthy industrialists and financiers who are the new inheritor class who rule over us and make the choices as to what we believe and as to what sort of trash information is dumped into us in public school. One classic representative of the inheritor class with new wealth and who rules us is Bill Gates. We love to gaslight everyone about how successful, indispensible, and how “modern” the US is and how our revolution against the British crown was the Holy War that founded our great nation. We’re sooooooooooooo advanced beyond feudalism and its inheritor class (like the Habsburgs or Bourbons) and we’ve moved on to a new industrialized elite inheritor class that make up our new ruling royalties. It’s really the same old pile of shit. The only thing that’s changed is the elite one percenter flies buzzing around it and trying to lay eggs in it.

      Sadly it’s an unstable system that most often begins collapsing at around 250 years of age. The Habsburgs might be silly anacronisms to us now of a bygone age, but they did manage to last for around 1000 years of ruling parts of Europe and the Balkans. So it seems they had created something around 4 times as stable and well managed as the average republic is. People think democracies and republics are modern ideas and systems. They are not. Greece tried democracies and at one time Rome was a republic. How did it all work out for them? Oh, I see! THIS TIME we’ll get it right, the failure of the Roman republic was just a warmup act out there setting the stage for better empires to come?

    Be Prepared For Some Rocky Waters. It’s unclear to me when China/Russia/NK/Iran will strike but rest assured they will. The malware is planted in our critical infrastructure and the thousands of operatives live amongst us. The dry runs and probes are ongoing and increasing. It will come with no warning and it will be asymmetric in nature. No Internet, no power, thousands of drones unleashed from cargo ships that wipe out our planes on the ground and destroy our Aegis radars on our ships. Within 30 minutes we will be unable to mount any response to the simultaneous invasions of the Baltic’s, South Korea and Taiwan. Our blob is ineffective at going anything but wasting money and spying on US citizens. Are Americans willing to die in a nuclear holocaust? How else could we strike back?

    My feeling is that they implement this plan by riding the wave of chaos in October and November. No need to rush though. Since China can build 10 ships to our 1 why not push it off and grow more numerically superior. So perhaps they wait until the next election or when we begin to disintegrate into civil war. There is a calculated tipping point. Any ideas as to how low and weak we need to sink to?

      What will happen instead is the worldwide collapse and rejection of the US dollar. The effects of this calamity means the average person in the US will be cut off from access to imported goods. It would create the same situation as if a foreign naval power set up a blockade of warships on both coasts of the USA and prevented any ships from either entering or leaving the country. We’ll be ravaged by lack of basic living necessities like food, fuel, shoes, and clothing. The stuff will either be rationed, too expensive, or simply not available in the first place.

      Quite frankly, the USA is in such serious trouble right now that we have *absolutely* no business intervening in the affairs of or trying to prevent invasions of Korea, Ukraine, Israel, Taiwan, Africa, the Baltics. After we’re completely broke with a desperate, confused, and very angry former middle class there will be no way for us to support either bases or troops abroad. All that military force we have left to fund will be used to keep order in a chaotic and collapsing US. We’ll have and need martial law just to be able to have some basic civil order that enables the vital basic parts of civilized living to continue. We’ll have martial law just so we can continue to have potable water on tap, a bit of very expensive electricity, sewage treatment, emergency food distritbution, protecting truck convoys, etc. Whatever at that time is happening in the Baltics will be irrelevant to the needs and focus of the average despairing US citizen.that can’t find shoes anywhere because China quit selling them to us.

        @groundhog

        I think your scenario is the more likely one.

        That said, the end of the dollar is not necessarily the of end things in America. Even our massive deficits need not be.

        I lived in a country with weak currency and government (not private) debt in the 1970s, Greece. It was like a poorer Italy, with healthier food.

        Imports were expensive–that nice Raleigh Chopper bicycle that was $75 at the PX was was 7,000 drachma at neighborhood shop equivalent of $235. THREE times more for people with a third of the income.

        Inflation under 15% was “good”. 15-25% annual was the norm. But Greeks then lived with a lot less “stuff” than the GIs in Greece with families, let alone Americans today.

        Perhaps a “kinetic” event will be the spark that ignites our financial powder keg.

        But again, as I asked @H2power, I ask you

        What happens to all the US military assets overseas, in the event the US cannot keep them going?

        Not just the assets, but the “power vacuum”.

        Granted, the US has been an imperialist power under the veneer of a “liberal, capitalist democracy”. But still, will China try to fill the powe VACUUM (it would be hard for them)? Russia? (impossible for them, IMO) The multi-ethnic Europeans, who have bigger demographic problems than the US and who finances are just as bad if not worse?

        Setting aside the implosion in living standards that awaits us here in the BIG PX (and the higher one is living, the greater the drop….), some one comment, I need ideas

        Who/what will fill the power vacuum of a US implosion?

        How will the globalists impose their will on others without an Imperial US military sword looming over those who are weak and do not comply?

        The Imperial DoD requires a lot of resources, capital to run. An implosion domestically will eventually starve the military.

    • Socrates-Detroit June 4, 2024 at 11:03 am #

      @H2power

      Interesting comment.

      Should that come to pass, what about the US strategic nuclear deterrent? Might the US government not use that?

      The attack scenario you describe (which I find interesting AND plausible) would warrant retaliation–though perhaps the US might not know who to retaliate against.

      Today, our Imperial Air Force and Navy can destroy more targets on more of the earth than any on other power. America can bomb more small countries with impunity than anyone, thanks to our planes, ships, and missiles, and the elaborate global network of bases that support them.

      But here is my big question for you (two questions): in the aftermath of your “attack scenario”, can the US military, our Imperial Navy and Air Force cannot continue as before? If not, who will fill that power vacuum?

      Next question? What will happen to all those military assets–the hardware AND the trained people who operate it?

      • Groundhog June 4, 2024 at 2:25 pm #

        “Today, our Imperial Air Force and Navy can destroy more targets on more of the earth than any on other power. America can bomb more small countries with impunity than anyone, thanks to our planes, ships, and missiles, and the elaborate global network of bases that support them.”

        Today our air force and navy are unable to stop the 3rd world Houthis from attacking ships in the Red Sea. Iran and Russia have hypersonic missiles that make aircraft carriers obsolete. In a full scale all out war those carriers and their support ships will be sent to the bottom. China will do the same to any aircraft carriers we send their way to annoy them about Taiwan. Western military powers are showing in Ukraine that our hardware and training has become obsolete. If NATO and the US go into WWIII with Russia our conventional forces and equipment will be destroyed, leaving us only with the nuclear option. I think both Russia and China wouldn’t hesitate to unload their entire nuke arsenal on us if need be. The are being cautious with us regarding military escalation because they know the West is collectively mentally ill and suicidal. They probably know that the best way to fight us is to wait until we finish our collective suicide by ourslelves and leave them out of it. They have no desire to be on the recieving end of strategic nukes that ruin their chances for being happy and productive. The West doesn’t seem to care if we all die. It’s not possible to be in a deadly fight with a suicidal person and win when that person could care less if they live or die in the first place.

            …now left in the world, there won’t be an atomic war, even though our enemies and us would like to defeat the other. It doesn’t take a genius to figure that out. There’s several steps needed to be taken before a launching, and everyone involved at each step would have to be insane.

            I’m not worried that will occur. Mostly (never say never). Sorry about the split posting, but I find it difficult to type on my ipad.

            This is noteworthy! I agree with beantownbill.

            Perhaps some one has gotten his userID and password?

            Yep, nuclear ICBM subs are hard to stop. And hard to give guidance too.

            And nuclear-powered attack subs (where the US, at least on paper, dominates) can make global commerce stop (that affects China).

            But I think Russian nuclear-powered attack subs could make commerce to the US stop–though a dollar collapse, as others note, could do the same.

            I don’t think we will get to the point of subs launching missiles. I think they are the last to be used, but I really have no idea of “nuclear strategy”

            But if nukes are used, how are we really going to know whether they came from a sub or a land-based missile? Is CNN or JHK or Fox or the Duran going to tell us? How will they know?

          @Groundhog

          Believe it or not, I agree with your second paragraph. Yet I stand by my comment.

          How can that be?

          I admit I’m not the best, or quickest, writer. Or the most concise, sorry.

          The US today, retains unmatched ability to bomb and destroy, as I wrote, especially weaker countries that cannot defend themselves against missiles or bombs. Sometimes the weak can use terrorism, or if they are more clever and capable, asymmetric warfare (something both Russia AND China CAN use, which the US seems oblivious to. Just wait till the utilities and internet can credit cards stop).

          Bombing is not same as winning a war or getting your way diplomatically (with or without an implicit or explicit threat of using force).

          Breaking things is not the same as getting things done. And even brute bombing requires an ARMY to occupy and hold ground, at least for a while.

          America’s unrivaled ability to break things is diminishing by the day but barring some unforeseen revolution in warfare (or foreseen, with drones) but will remain significant and other countries will have to keep it in mind.

          One concern is that, as American elites (aka puppets of big finance or the blob) realize the US is getting relatively weaker, the appeal of a delusional “first strike” (“hit ’em while we got the muscle”) might lead them to do that.

          And that’s more than theoretical. As you note, unfortunately, the Chinese and Russians are now the grown-ups in the room of world diplomacy and international affairs. The ACTIONS of the US governments in general, and the Biden Administration in particular (seize/steal Russian assets; blow up Nordstream; cross your own lines, as in no long-range missiles for Ukraine, to giving long-range missiles, to saying it’s OK to strike the Russian homeland) may no be deliberately meant to bring on a bigger exchange between the US and Russia; the noises about Taiwan could drag in China.

          This would, perhaps, rally people around Biden; and possibly reduce the world’s population, which are among the objectives of Biden/the blob.

      Mexico is drifting the way of Venezuela. At some point Uncle Sam will be obliged to invade Mexico (again) – but this time we will annex all of it and just declare the Mexicans as new citizens because it looks like we end up that way anyhow.

      The Mexican government is hopelessly corrupt and compromised and our long border with Mexico is damnably hard to defend.

      Once we annex Mexico we will only have a very short border with Guatemala and the rest of Central America to defend.

      It will be much easier to choke-off all of the rest of the third world scum and ChiComs trying to sneak in if we do it down there rather than at the present border.

      Too bad we didn’t just take ALL of Mexico back in 1848. Could have saved ourselves a lot of trouble and we would have already assimilated the Mexican population by now.

Trudeau leftists should be expelled…..along with foreign migrants. White Anglophone Canadians will be easy to assimilate. Give Quebec its independence, but reduce them to a protectorate of the U.S. kept on a tight leash. Also, buy Greenland from the Danes.

    OG:
    I just heard something very interesting. Apparently some bigwig Russian banker recently outlined a key criteria of BRICS … and it is so simple:

    1 gram of gold = 1 barrel of oil

    [FYI: There are 28.3495 grams in an ounce.]

    You will note that, of course, the US$ does not appear in the equation.

    Interestingly, this almost perfectly coincides with the recent 15% rise in gold prices.

    That is, using Friday’s closing prices,:

    Gold: US$2,327.36/oz / 28.3495 grams/oz. = US$82.10/oz.

    While oil (Brent Crude) closed at US$81.62/barrel.

    BRICS eliminates the US$ completely. BRICS is the new paradigm.

    BRICS is gold-based. BRICS is even commodity-based, BRICS is pegging 1 gram of gold to 1 barrel of oil. That ratio will not fluctuate in this new paradigm. One commodity is pegged against the other commodity and phoney bologna ass-wipe fiat US Fed IOUs are now irrelevant.

    US seizes Scott Ritter’s passport

    The US State Department has seized the passport of former Marine and UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter, he told RT on Monday.

    Ritter was on his way to Russia for the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) when he was pulled off the plane and had his documents confiscated.

    “I was boarding the flight. Three [police] officers pulled me aside. They took my passport. When asked why, they said ‘orders of the State Department’. They had no further information for me,” Ritter told RT. “They pulled my bags off the plane, then escorted me out of the airport. They kept my passport.”

    Ritter is a former US Marine Corps intelligence officer, who later served as the US and UN weapons inspector in Iraq. He is also a RT contributor, writing about international security, military affairs, Russia, and the Middle East, as well as arms control and nonproliferation.

    He most recently visited Russia in January, spending time in Chechnya, Moscow and St. Petersburg, among other places.

    The most recent post on Ritter’s Telegram channel put the Clooney Foundation for Justice on notice for its alleged crusade against “Russian propagandists.”

    “Here I am. In your face. If telling the truth about Russia makes me a propagandist in your book, then I accept the title,” he wrote. “Bring it on. I’ll school you on the First Amendment.”

    “You have zero concept of what free speech is. Try and arrest me and you’ll find out. In spades. It’s war,” he added.

I believe JFK tried to put a brake on the MIC once Cuba happened, and paid the price. Once JFK was out of the way, and later RFK, it opened the gates to the Deep State and the rottenness that has developed since.

    I just read a report on The Weather Channel video. CDC reports a tripling of the incidents of Pertussis or whooping cough since 2023 in the United States.

    Folks, the DpT vaccine is NOT mRNA. My wife and I got Whooping Cough, or One Hundred Day Cough, last fall in September in either Ireland or Scotland.

    You do NOT want to get this shit. It is miserable, it lasted six months for me and my wife is still getting relapses. It stays in your throat, produces unbelievable amounts of thick mucus, produces a nagging wet cough, never goes into your lungs, spreads into your head and infects your jaws, teeth and TMJs. My right side of my upper teeth hurt like a toothache for a month.

    Unless you recognize it early, there is no treatment. Antibiotics do not work, There are three segments, first a cold. Then the wet cough hits for a month or so. Then the cough, very slowly recedes for 3 – 6 months and it moves into your head. My guess, through the eustachian tubes. From what I read, the bacteria jam themselves into the cilia in the throat and hide from the antibiotics and the immune system.

    My guess it is part of the Vaxx response of ruining the immune system as this is a failure of community immunity.

    Two reasons to get the vaccine.

    As I said before, you do not want to get this crap, It is miserable, you might as well kiss off 3 – 6 months of your life and good night’s sleep.

    Second, if you have new babies in your life, Pertussis will kill them as they do not have the lung capacity to cough the mucus out.

    The DPT vaccine is effective against tetanus and diphtheria for ten years. However, only 5-7 for Pertussis. If you cannot remember your last DpT shot, it might be a good time.

    I had pertussis for six months. I still have mild mucus production. I am immune. I still got the shot to ensure that immunity.

    I believe the vaxx has tuned out many diseases in our immune systems, removing the memory T and B cells in favor of Covid memory cells. That is my opinion. So the response may be that our systems need to be re-energized, they are in infantile conditions and need re-exposure to the environment. The responses could be auto-immune confusion and low resistance to diseases that you have been exposed to or vaccinated for in the past. Just waiting for the next novel pandemic.

    Anyway, if you are inclined, the DpT has very low side effects. I had none.

I’m sure some of you have been to 3rd world countries, you know what conditions are. That’s what’s coming here. I had a strange occurence on Wednesday at my dentist while in for a checkup and cleaning. It’s a large office and apparently they agreed to take in a number of Newcomers with treatment paid for by the State. My technician was telling me she was thinking about changing employers because the people she is seeing have never had dental care their entire lives — at 30-40 years old.

          I caught it in the UK. Not in the USA, not in a Mexican barrio. The UK has had a leading epidemic in 2023 and now it is moving here. The article said it is showing up in northern states, not border states.

          The hazards from this vaccine just aren’t there, the hazards from the disease are there, this is a no brainer.

            OG, the DPT has years and years of data showing it to be safe. especially compared to getting the diseases. It was not foisted upon us with no testing and I have never heard of a power structure using DpT vaccines as a mandated item.

            The mortality rate, especially of Pertussis and Diptheria in kids, is pretty high. Tetanus in all age groups.

            I would hate to be responsible for infecting and killing a family baby with pertussis or diptheria. To avoid a benign shot.

          The current government does not give a damn about public health. As said before, I think evidence exists that the aim of the government is the replacement of European American with darker folks from everywhere with the resultant movement of the political spectrum to the Left. European America, Whites, have got to stop voting for the leaders of this replacement drive, in large numbers. Remember the aim of the government right now is the disenfranchisement of the European America population.

    Meanwhile on the streets of Philadelphia, the Pride Parade clashed with pro Palestinian demonstrators. “No Pride while there’s Genocide,” The Pride Parade was stopped dead in its tracks; a standoff ensued (dare I say a Mexican standoff) beefy dudes in black leather and assless chaps standing nose to nose with frumpy, crazy eyed coeds wrapped in Kiffayes. Neither side was backing down ~ true believers don’t back down. Philadelphia police finally intervened to calm the situation, and the parade was rerouted. Im afraid this is a sample, just a sample, of what’s in store this summer. Summer hasn’t even started yet and it’s not that hot. Wait until the temps touch 90°F! In Ct just in the past week or two, a State Trooper was killed by what looks to be an illegal, pairs of teenagers were gunned down in Hartford & Bridgeport, and the new sport of forcing single women off the road to hijack their car has emerged. Some were arrested yesterday for dragging a woman out of her Porche and trying to shove her into traffic. There were 5 of them. Police made arrests, today in court they all needed translators.

      Not to worry, folks. Today in Ct the Governor officially honors Pride Month; a massive ‘Pride Flag’ has been raised over the State Capitol. And when I say massive I mean it’s the largest flag you’ve ever seen.

      There will be festivities all day inside the Capitol building and on Capitol grounds. Last night some state official gave this absurd militant speech, inviting citizens down to celebrate Pride, implying if you don’t come — and bring your children — you are homophobic.

      Last night in the Northend of Hartford — formerly the African American district before the entire city became the African American district –a 2 year old girl out wandering the streets at 11:00 pm was run down and killed … by a speeding BMW that left the scene of the accident. It never ceases to amaze me, all the expensive foreign cars parked on the streets of ‘de Hood’. And not all of them are stolen. It’s strange the local news reporting this incident with a straight face, How awful!, without asking why a 2 year old was out in the road at 11 pm.

      • JohnAZ June 4, 2024 at 8:38 am #

        Okay, the real theme is that the perversity of LBGTQ+ needs to be suppressed in this society. They creation of the perversity in the young especially is a trademark of the perverse population, they want more of their species. They should be in a closet, able to live their lives without exposing normalcy to their perversity, let alone trying to convince the world that their lifestyle is normal or preferred.

        They have invaded the BoyScouts, destroying that organizations integrity, the teaching profession, making confused converts at all ages in the school systems, the churches where denominations are splitting in two because of LBGTQ+ pastors distorting religious dogma.

        The Bible is insistent about perversity, sexual immorality, being a “big” sin, destroyed directly by God when it gets out of control in a society.

        With the United States encouraging “queer” formation, nationally and globally, I look to the sky for reaction. As I said, toleration for LBTGQ+ is okay, but allowing the sect to encourage expansion, especially with youth exposure, is a societal sin, big time.

        How many perverts have you got in your state government BRH? How many control the media? Just another indication of how low this country has descended.

        Me? Homophobe? Yep, I would tear that flag down, work to keep LBTGQ+ candidates out of office, out of schools and out of Boy Scouts.

        Anybody remember why Baden-Powell created the Boy Scouts in England? Because young men there were turning into Namby pamby people incapable of serving in the military, in other words, turning boys into men. He would be sick with what is happening today.

        • JohnAZ June 4, 2024 at 8:41 am #

          Over-socialization leads to this in any case. The Cult of Nice. Most liberal women are more masculine than their husbands. Many Mormon men, massively inculcated into the Cult of Nice, come off as gay as do many Evangelicals.

          Modern Life favors women and the female sphere over men and the masculine thus creating massive unhappiness for men and ultimately for women as well.

    Personally, I am hoping that the movie choice will be at least somewhat upbeat. For some reason I was thinking of that oldie but goodie, Splash. As I back in to how this all fits into the meta narrative it seems pretty clear that the blob entity wants us all in our aquariums where we can be monitored and controlled. If we are out to sea though in a free range way they would be very angry and displeased. Life is good when the overlords are displeased lol.

      Thinking of appropriate movie choice for this election, maybe it should be a nice X-rated one featuring an old man sniffing a young prepubescent girl in and after getting out of the shower.

    Well, ladies and germs;

    Found this on the Internets this AM;

    June 9th the Agreement between United States and Saudi Arabia to sell Saudi Oil in USD exclusively ends. Saudi Prince has already notified U.S. that this agreement will NOT be renewed and they will no longer accept USD.

    True? Who the hell knows. But if true, it is a seminal event in the decline of the dollar, and effects will be felt immediately.

    There are several factors that allow for the US dollar hegemony…Rule of Law, Established Bond Market, and The US dollar being accepted as primary payment for Saudi Oil. The Petro Dollar underpins MMT, and our entire economy.

    If you have loins, you’d better gird them.

    It was a good ride.

    • SoftStarLight June 4, 2024 at 12:27 pm #

    • JohnAZ June 4, 2024 at 2:31 pm #

      I will be watching the news for this announcement. It is the beginning of the end of the USA.

      • Socrates-Detroit June 4, 2024 at 3:38 pm #

        You’re about 111 years too late.

        1913 marks the beginning of the end. The Federal Income Tax and Federal Reserve Act basically solidified the control of big capital (Wall Street, City of London) of the US.

        The above Amendment (Income Tax) and law are the foundation of upon which many (not all) of the laws and practices which have slowly eroded the Constitutional government were enacted or followed.

        A “purist” might say the War of Northern Aggression was the end of the American experiment, as the Federales became more powerful.

        Another might cite the Spanish-American War as the beginning of overt American Imperialism, another milestone. America’s first “war of choice”.

        This June 9 announcement was inevitable, along with the inevitable rise of China (it’s just that the Americans really sped up China’s rise–LOL!!!–at the expense of middle America. Not so funny.)

        The end of the Cold War and the “unipolar” moment bought America another 20-25 years.

        That “gift” was “wasted” by the American establishment which chose to drive the last few nails in the coffin of US manufacturing and the American middle class, so big capital could get even richer by making more money in Asia, at the same the warmongers bled (a less rich, in real terms) America even more with the “forever wars”.

        And this impoverishment of Americans and weaking of the US was nicely concealed by the internet, smart phones, and all the other “neat” electronic gadgetry that (disproportionately) foreign-born Americans, or Asians invented and that we use today.

        The devaluation of the dollar was concealed by all these better, less costly goods from Asia, mostly China, which moderated price rises, and even led to LOWER prices! That’s over now.

        The question is, can the blob be defanged without taking down what’s left of Middle America? Unlike JHK’s optimistic-ending missives, I think probably NOT.

        Twenty years ago, JHK pointed out in his Yellow Book, The Long Emergency, that, collectively, Americans were living beyond their means. IMO, he simply connected the dots to what I and others could see, and painted a not-so-good picture, that had been hidden from us, in plain view.

        I suspect some of the Globalists read his book also, and that motivates them EVEN MORE to reduce the world’s population, by any means necessary–disease, sterilization, war.

        Well, today our “means” have diminished, but further exurban sprawl has added more unsustainable costs. Long distances to transport goods and electricity. And let’s not forget, where is the water coming to keep this going?

        And yet, the US elite still can pump tens of billions to its MIC friends to start and keep the war in Ukraine going, a war that might lead to WW3, and to keep the Israeli war ON Gaza going, a war which it is now clear Israel will not just not win, but will LOSE (albeit at a huge cost in blood and suffering to the people of Gaza).

        America is drowning in red ink, and that red ink has partly enabled rivers of blood in Ukraine and Gaza. And a lot of Americans are delusional and think “God will bless us!” LOL!!

        So enjoy your day today, tomorrow is not guaranteed anymore.

      “Agreement…to sell Saudi Oil EXCLUSIVELY ends.”

      I’m sure the Saudis will still accept dollars, and much Saudi oil will be sold for dollars.

      But now, rather than barter with the Chinese, OR have to convert their petrodollars to buy Chinese goods and services, they will simply sell in oil in yuan and use those yuan to buy dollars (yuan, renimbi, whatever).

      If true, this is a big deal, for the reasons you concisely state. And more.

      I remember my father saying twenty years ago, “when Saddam opened his mouth and said he wanted to sell Iraqi oil for Euros, that’s when Bush went after him”.

      • elysianfield June 4, 2024 at 4:15 pm #

        Soc-Det,
        Our ability to spend untold trillions of dollars on the military, foreign exploits, and any other cause, real or imagined, relies on Modern Monetary Theory. The theory works, and works only when the majority of the world is required to use US dollars…short of that requirement, MMT cannot be viable. Our military, funded without seeming boundaries, relies on MMT for their sustenance, and that sustenance relies on the hegemony of the US military…there is no other metric that would work.

        The shot-callers understand this. If MMT loses it’s underpinning, than what is to be done? I can see no other avenue than war, war against the BRICKS nations… useProxies if we can get them…US boots on the ground if we cannot. It will be an existential moment for the country.

        Regime change in Russia, China and the re-alignment of the House of Saud would be required at a minimum if the MMT and our economy is to remain viable.

        Sound familiar?

      The crime of this climate change situation is that the conversion to electric transportation is not possible and will not make much difference.

      It reminds me of Covid in 2020. The government did not have any solution to the virus, so it made up a bunch of baloney solutions that ended up accomplishing nothing, the pandemic went on unimpeded. Then the vaxx, the ultimate savior that ended up creating more problems than it solved. It did not save millions of lives, as it turns out it may kill more folks than it “saved”.

      The EV is the Vaxx of climate change, it creates more problems than it solves. I notice there is no other feasible answer to the combustion problem, the CO2 problem that may or may not be the problem.

      Our rotten to the core government manipulates the public with fear, fear of a disease and fear of a hot planet. Not only our government, they are henchmen for the global powers in Europe. They are supposed to be our problem solvers. Their solution are not solutions and as it turns out, the solutions only bring on bigger problems.

      There is no solution for Covid, or the next virus or bacteria. There is no solution for the warming of the planet, if a miracle happened and all cars were EVs tomorrow, it would make no difference.

        Wouldn’t surprise me at all. Maybe they should all be evacuated for their safety? I hate though how Westerners will go to Africa and trophy hunt. It doesn’t help discourage things. Not that the Africans would care what Westerners do but perhaps it would have some effect on some.

        • Jarek June 5, 2024 at 2:05 am #

          Paradoxically, this is the only thing that might save the animals, at least according to some. The number of kills are strictly regulated and large sums paid to become “a great White hunter” like Don Jr. If only he was a great White too!

          Of course the other approach is helping too: Strict protection with tourists paying to see the animals in their natural environment. Blacks see that there is lots of money to be made with both of these approaches and are going along with them, as if they were ideas to begin with.

          In and of themselves, they don’t care for the most part and would just naturally wipe them all out as their population explodes.

            One of the problems in Africa is the distribution of Kalashnikov rifles. Over 150 million of them have been manufactured since 1947, and they have been liberally distributed around Africa from Capetown to Cairo. Just powerful enough to wound or kill any large animal, everybody and their brother has at least two.

    priDEMONth: Let’s cut the crap – WNBA star Caitlin Clark isn’t being regularly assaulted on the court because she’s white; she’s being physically assaulted because she’s HETEROSEXUAL.
    I don’t watch sports anymore, and certainly not women’s basketball, but the Caitlin Clark girl made enough of a splash in her collegiate career that even I know who she is – vaguely.

    I’ve seen reportage this past week to the effect that this girl, the leading all-time scorer in Division I NCAA women’s basketball, freshly drafted as the #1 pick into the WNBA this spring, is getting physically assaulted on the court on the regular, and it’s being reported that it’s because she’s white.

    Abject nonsense. There are other white girls in the WNBA and they aren’t being assaulted. The reason Caitlin Clark is being assaulted is because she isn’t a lesbian sodomite. She’s a normal girl, with a normal boyfriend, and she’s the best women’s basketball player of all time. And the dykes are ENRAGED.

    Women’s basketball, ESPECIALLY at the WNBA level, is a stone-cold cult of lesbian sodomy.

    Remember the sodomites’ tactical progression for conquering and destroying a society:

    Tolerance…

    Acceptance…

    Ratification…

    PARTICIPATION.

    Caitlin Clark CLEARLY, by virtue of the fact that she’s voluntarily in the WNBA, tolerates lesbian sodomy. She almost certainly “accepts” lesbian sodomy. Odds are VERY high that she favors legal ratification of lesbian sodomy vis-a-vis fake sodo-marriage. But now Caitlin is learning, and demonstrating to the world, that her go-along-to-get-along mindset, her being an “ally” isn’t sufficient. Caitlin Clark is experiencing PHYSICAL VIOLENCE because she herself refuses to PARTICIPATE in lesbian sodomy.

    Here’s a piece on WNBA star Candice Wiggins, who had to retire early from the WNBA because of intense bullying because she is straight. Wiggins credibly estimated that the WNBA was 98% lesbian sodomite fifteen years ago.

    Oh, just for reference, here’s a picture of straight Candice Wiggins. Notice anything??

    She black, as they say in the hood.

    https://www.news.com.au/sport/american-sports/the-wnbas-lesbian-culture-broke-my-spirit-candice-wiggins/news-story/5312693aa7bbcaaab256b5a21ed8cd5b

    The dykes are ENRAGED that Caitlin Clark is so wildly popular, bringing in millions of viewers to the WNBA for the first time in its pathetic 25 year history, while they have been largely ignored… precisely because they are revolting dykes, and no one wants to watch them stomp around like the perverted brutes that they are. But yeah, it’s kinda fun to watch a nice, normal, feminine girl play good basketball.

    This is exactly the same dynamic as why the revolting dyke Benedictine nuns in Atchison, Kansas DESPISE the Trad Benedictine Abbey filled with beautiful, young nuns just across the Missouri River in Gower, Missouri, to cite current events as an excellent example. The dyke nuns would MUCH rather see every convent die, and the entire Catholic Church die, than see non-dykes attract vocations and worship the Triune Godhead as He wants to be worshiped. Same with the faggot bishops and priests who utterly despise the Trad apostolates, with churches packed to standing-room-only with young, fecund families and young straight singles.

    No, the dykes will burn the WNBA to the ground unless Caitlin Clark either quits in disgust, OR turns dyke.

    Tolerance…

    Acceptance…

    Ratification…

    PARTICIPATION.

    Jarek: Interesting. I think being White and an incredible star would be enough to do it, but this may well be a big factor too.

    More: She’s not at all the Black stereotype of Whites: drab and colorless. The opposite. She’s extremely charismatic. The Force is strong with this one. She catches every eye, plays to the crowd, and when she makes a big play, she struts. She’s just like they are, but better both in terms of basketball and as a person. She’s nice in person and well spoken. A role model that girls will want to follow and people will want to buy tickets to see. Who wants to watch a bunch of vaguely female thugs? Is the League really going to be stupid enough to let them drive her out? Or wait until she gets a broke nose from an elbow or a concussion from hitting her head on the floor after being shoved?

    I don’t watch women’s basketball or any basketball, but being interested in race I have taken an interest in the ongoing drama and now in her. She’s a great White player. Somehow Black men were able to deal with people like Larry Bird and John Havilcek, but of course the NBA isn’t a stronghold of homosexuality. If it were, maybe they would have faced the same. Or maybe Black lesbians are just worse in this regard, more envious and frustrated.

    • Land of the Banned June 4, 2024 at 3:56 pm #

      Black women are green with jealousy that a skinny white girl from lily white Iowa is showing them up. Been that way for at least two years now, since Clark and “Angel” Reese first met up in the Natty title game, with Reese winning and beginning her “oh poor me and us black bitchez” routine that she’s been pushing ever since. But yeah, I have no doubt there’s some suppressed lesbian envy involved too. Black lesbians – the next great “oppressed minority group” sideshow coming to a media outlet near you.

    • SoftStarLight June 4, 2024 at 4:38 pm #

      I haven’t really followed the story much either and am also only vaguely aware of her though I did see how she was knocked down the other day in a very unjustified way. I can see it pretty clearly. Imagine a distorted mean girls on steroids. Angel Reese is definitely a big victim culture person. I don’t really follow her so don’t know how she swings but I do know she freely uses the race card in her transactions.

      • Land of the Banned June 4, 2024 at 4:49 pm #

        Reese is a real piece of work. Nothing but the victim card all the way down with her. She should at least try to diversify now and then. Try some new strategies to get people to feel sorry for her for a change. Not a bad looker either when she’s not going all full-on ghetto slut, which unfortunately, is almost all the time. She’s out of Baltimore, though. Go figure. Ghetto as ghetto gets.

    • OG June 4, 2024 at 6:19 pm #

      I will probably regret asking this question but “curiosity killed the cat”:

      How can lesbians be sodomites? Is not a penis the key ingredient in sodomy?

      • Jarek June 4, 2024 at 11:23 pm #

        I thought that too once but in traditional terms, sodomy means any illicit sex.

        • messianicdruid June 5, 2024 at 2:37 am #

          “This was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy. They were haughty, and did abominable things before me; therefore I removed them when I saw it.”, interpreting the sin as arrogance and the lack of hospitality. As with Ezekiel, [ some ] later prophetic reproaches of Sodom and Gomorrah do not condemn, implicate, or even mention homosexual conduct as the reason for the cities’ destruction: instead assigning the blame to other sins, such as adultery, dishonesty, and uncharitableness.

          It is all of a piece.

      • elysianfield June 5, 2024 at 11:28 am #

    • JohnAZ June 4, 2024 at 5:09 pm #

      Another question, would the lack of stability of the US dollar encourage states to create their own currencies? IOW, would it be an encouragement for secession?

      IMHO, one of the few things still holding this country together is the stability of the dollar and the US Treasury note. Both are under huge stress.

      Another thought, every time I see the amount of the National Debt, I see the hundreds of thousands that each person owes in that debt. Like the Deep State wants you to think that we own their debt. Hu huh.

      When you take the number of people in each state and multiply them by the individual debt “ownership”, the liability is enormous for large population states. How favorable does it look for those states to tell the Deep State to take their debt and shove it?

      • messianicdruid June 5, 2024 at 2:12 am #

        Odious Debt

        “In international law, odious debt, also known as illegitimate debt, is a legal theory that says that the national debt incurred by a despotic regime should not be enforceable. Such debts are, thus, considered by this doctrine to be personal debts of the government that incurred them and not debts of the state. In some respects, the concept is analogous to the invalidity of contracts signed under coercion.[1] Whether or not it is possible to discharge debts in this manner is a matter of dispute.” Wikipedia

        Odious is a good word [ only two definitions – very similar ] .
        adjective
        1. Arousing or deserving hatred or strong dislike. synonym: hateful.
        2. Extremely unpleasant; repulsive: synonym: offensive.
        an odious smell.

        Yeah, when the cows come home.

        ‘One commodity is pegged against the other commodity and phoney bologna ass-wipe fiat US Fed IOUs are now irrelevant.’ OG

        Are other fiat currencies ‘bologna ass-wipe’ fiats, like the ruble, the renminbi, the yen, the euro, the pound, etc.? The Canadian dollar?

        The US dollar and the euro are still by far the most dominant reserve currencies in the world. The dollar is also the ‘currency of currencies’.

        Here’s an example; Say Peru wants to buy some wool from New Zealand. No bilateral exchange exists between the two countries, but there is a market between Peruvian soles (sols?) and US dollars and between New Zealand dollars and US dollars. So, if you can’t make payments in US dollars you can’t exchange your soles for New Zealand dollars.

        Much of the world’s finance is still done in dollar and euro denominated bonds. Even companies in Russia have issued such bonds, at least in the past.

        Anyway, the Brics are a challenge, but it appears that they are not replacing the dollar any time soon.

          That is true … but dying. The new paradigm removes this ridiculous monopoly that the US fed holds over mankind.

          Wrong.

          Kissinger’s 50-year petrodollar deal expires in days (June 9). Saudi Arabia will not renew it and, instead, have signed onto a military alliance with Russia and a currency alliance with BRICS.

          Silver and gold are money. They always have been and they always will be. These past 53 years (Pres. Nixon detethered the US$ from gold on Aug. 15, 1971) have been the evil (Roe v Wade) anomaly.

          The US government weaponized the US$ and now BRICS is establishing a world trade system without your bullying. BRICS is commodity-backed and has over 70% of the world’s population.

          There is something satisfying watching hubris‘ inevitable collapse, eh?

            Why single out the US dollar with your hubris and apparent hatred of the US? On the bilateral exchange, you say it’s dying. You’re dying also aren’t you, but when will your death occur? Probably before the dollar’s.

            Will the Saudis go with the petroyuan? Whatever they go with, the dollar will be weakened but not finished. And the threat is more strategic and geopolitical right now than anything else, weakening our influence in the vital Persian Gulf.

            The Kremlin says that an independent Brics payment system would be based on state-of-the-art tools like digital technologies and blockchain. Sure.

            The GDP of the G7 nations is far greater than that of the Brics but the Brics have a huge population advantage. That is cause for concern.

            ‘Silver and gold are money.’ Many things have been money, including fiat. And don’t think that gold confiscation couldn’t happen again like it did in 1933 under FDR.

            You have no idea what might happen under the Brics system. Why couldn’t it be weaponized?

            Weaponize the dollar? Russia weaponized energy when it required the European Union and other nations to pay for oil and gas in rubles. Way of the world, rube.

            The US dollar is “virtual currency”, and has been since 1971, when Nixon severed the dollar link.

            (He did that because the French and others presented their dollars to the US and wanted gold in exchange).

            The dollar is backed by NOTHING.

            The government and banks create dollars out of thin air.

            Those “in the know” when the money is created allocate their resources and become wealthier.

            The other 99% must contend with the erosion of their paper dollars. Maybe 1-2% of them plan for it.

            As some one else said recently, “give me the power to write and print next week’s headlines, that’s all I need to become very rich and powerful”.

            Science and technology and GROWTH have allowed this game to proceed.

            The pie grew. A constantly larger share of a growing pie accrued to the elite.

            However, the smaller share of a bigger pie meant MORE pie for everyone else to fight/haggle/work over (the unconnected wealthy, middle class, working class, welfare recipients).

            That era of growth is in the past now–for the US. Forever.

            And on top of that, our “elected government” is actively pursuing measures that will make people poorer–promoting and subsidizing EVs, replacing real electricity generations with “wind and solar” (good luck on still, cloudy days), and these actions actually harm the environment. Not matter.

            That means that, even without BRICS, a change is inevitable because foreigners are going to stop accepting worthless paper any day. For their oil, flat screen TVs, smartphones, aspirins, stuff.

            So, enjoy your “American day” today. Because next week, next month, next year, next decade, it won’t be here.

          Since you tried to correct my grammar elsewhere, perhaps I should point out that ‘being the grea[t]er man’, is a ‘dangling participle’, in this sentence, since (grammatically) it relates to the subject of the main clause, ‘you’, not the object, Putin, which was presumably your intention.

          To make it grammatically correct, you’d need to amend it to ‘Putin being the greater man, you’d probably hate him more’.

    A new development in the plot:

    That “smirk” seems to have galvanized Doctor Phil to speak out directly to Joe Biden.

    “He called for President Biden ‘an end to this craziness to save the collective soul and sanity’ of America. ‘The current administration could and should do the right thing: dismiss now, even now, post-conviction of a political opponent, all such lawfare and pledge to return to the normal functioning of a government rightly run.’ He thinks America could become a ‘banana republic’ akin to many autocratic nations, one similar to Russia. ‘What are we gonna do next? Find a “Putin poisoning posse” and start finding political opponents foaming at the mouth at home, not so mysteriously dying in their Lay-Z-Boy recliners?'”

    dailymail.co.uk/galleries/article-13492875/Dr-Phil-calls-Biden-dismiss-Trumps-hush-money-conviction.html

    He is also gong to interview President Trump, and counsel him against using his second term, should he have one, to “seek retribution”. You wouldn’t know from the bashing he is getting that he is trying to stay apolitical and focus on the good of the country.

    Mark Steyn is saying that the “banana republic” term is inaccurate:

    “As I’ve been saying for months now, a “banana republic” is by definition an irrelevant peripheral basket-case on the fringe of the map: yes, yes, I know, if you’re watching that pier break apart off Gaza and US navy vessels wash up on Israeli beaches, what’s left of America may increasingly seem like that, but it is still in theory “the leader of the free world”. The expression “banana republic” was coined for Guatemala and Honduras; it’s a problem of an entirely different scale when a great power does it, and it doesn’t portend anything good about where the world’s headed. A governing party of a serious nation so indifferent to elementary maxims of prudence that it’s prepared to invent out of whole cloth crimes with which to convict the leader of the opposition is not one you’d want to bank on to keep us from stumbling into, say, a third world war.”

    Is this one of those plot twists where you don’t know who is behind it but it was the plan all along to have the dummy in the White House take the fall?

    Bobby Jr. has called out “democrats” for the lawfare too.

      I think its too late now….We are going to have this war….First Biden SECRETELY told Ukraine they can attack Russia with U.S Missles. Dr. Phil is a moron…… Once Putin decides he’s had enough of this, it’s over…And it will be too late.

        I do think that NATO bombing Russia will cross the Putin Red Line. There are many things he can do in Europe before firing his nukes.

        IMHO, the people of Europe will throw out their shitty governments before nukes will be used. Putin is not a hothead like Macron, he seems to be the only adult in the room. If you want to “blame” someone, try Blinken/Biden/Clinton/Obama.

    • BackRowHeckler June 5, 2024 at 11:05 am #

      Article in the NYPost this morning about Biden’s “pronounced cognitive signs of decline.” Apparently he doesn’t even know where is most of the time. As a person getting older myself (as we all are) this is nothing to gloat over, in fact I feel sorry for the guy. The question is, what are the Dems going to do about it? Having Biden stand for election in Nov seems like a cruel strategy ~ they must have a backup plan, but the hour is late.

      ?————-??????????????????????

      In this recent Mexican election cycle, which saw the first woman President elected … 38 candidates for public office were assassinated. The night of the celebration the female Mayor of a city outside Mexico City was shot thru the head. AP claims 3/5 of Mexico is controlled by the Cartels and Mexico is a Narco/Terror State, Let those facts sink in, CFNers.

        38? Goddamn….. Well Biden is still trying to get WWIII started, so it doesn’t even matter if his mental health is declining. And what does A Mexican female President mean for Mexico? It’s not like she was going to change or make anything better over there anyway.

            I look for one thing above all, Mexico moving into BRICS++++. Their ties with China are increasing as the cartels become more fixed in place. I also look for a weakening of the trade agreement with the USA. Economic reality is hitting the world about the USA weakness.

            Another Mexico concern, the cartels are reaching deeper and deeper into he USA,, with greater control over the criminal activity here. As crime is becoming a bigger slice of the economic pie in the USA, and the government is part of it, Mexico is going to get stronger as the US gets weaker. The new president is going to “accept” the cartels and try to “tax” them to fill the National coffers there. IMHO>

    @tucsonspur:

    Why single out the US dollar with your hubris and apparent hatred of the US?

    What, are you from the ADL School of Debate? “Predict a nice future for the USA or you HATE us!!!”

    Why do I “single out” the US$?

    Ummm … because, in your words: “The dollar is also the ‘currency of currencies’.”

    That is: the US Fed has forced earth to use their phoney bologna fiat ass-wipe much to the USA’s benefit and the earth’s detriment for over half of a century. D’uh!

    Will the Saudis go with the petroyuan?

    No. The petrodollar was an evil American construct. It will not be replaced with a different evil construct. Rather, it is being replaced with a global return back to real money (gold).

    BRICS is establishing a world-trade system that cuts out the evil profiteering of producing “money” out of the US Fed’s butt. That’s the whole point of BRICS – they are done with your bullying.

    Whatever they go with, the dollar will be weakened but not finished.

    That is incorrect. BRICS will completely tank the worthless US$ one day.

    And the threat is more strategic and geopolitical right now than anything else, weakening our influence in the vital Persian Gulf.

    The threat to the USA is on all fronts at once. You’ve bullied earth long enough and now earth is not going to take it any more.

    The Kremlin says that an independent Brics payment system would be based on state-of-the-art tools like digital technologies and blockchain. Sure.

    Stick your head up your butt and everything will be just fine, I’m sure.

    The GDP of the G7 nations is far greater than that of the Brics but the Brics have a huge population advantage. That is cause for concern.

    The GDP of the G7 is built on a foundation of sand. After BRICS collapses the US$ one day, the G7 will be in complete cave-man chaos.

    ‘Silver and gold are money.’ Many things have been money, including fiat.

    Hubris is as hubris does.”

    Fiat has tried to be “money” but every fiat currency ever has ended in disaster. Can you not learn from history?

    The US$ is the next fiat to become completely worthless (hello Confederate notes!) while silver and gold have always been real money.

    And don’t think that gold confiscation couldn’t happen again like it did in 1933 under FDR.

    Of course evil gold confiscation by evil governments will happen again. That hardly disproves anything that I’m saying.

    You have no idea what might happen under the Brics system. Why couldn’t it be weaponized?

    I never said that it couldn’t. If, however, it remains gold-backed then it can’t be printed out of thin air like the evil US$ by the evil US Fed. That curtails 99.9% of the problem.

    Fiat [and digits of fiat] is ass-wipe.

    Weaponize the dollar? Russia weaponized energy when it required the European Union and other nations to pay for oil and gas in rubles.

    Huh?! Russia started charging rubles instead of US$ for its commodities exports to the EU after the US kicked them out of trading in US$!

    What? Were they to simply stop trading all together because the bully said so? Give your head a shake.

    Think about what you’re saying. The US weaponized the US$ while Russia then continued world trade without it. It appears that you do not understand the word “weaponize.”

    Way of the world, rube.

    “I don’t like your analysis and your conclusions because, if correct, they’d be really bad for me. Therefore, I will now call you names.”

    Your closing line illustrates your simple mindedness and need to provoke.

    Right. You know my shortcomings and my motives better than do I.

    Ya think?

    Actually, my closing lines illustrate my reality-based prediction for the very near future.

    1 gram of gold = 1 barrel of oil

    US$ < Shit

      OG, a pretty strong statement, I believe. You have picked up on most of the insanity that the Biden/Deep State entails. I note that most of the insanity originates in the Left’s desire for a socialistic economy, and the decline of American prestige and world power. Biden should be labeled as a traitor by any imagining, along with his entire mob. IMHO, he is the first legitimate candidate for impeachment and removal as president then incarceration. His crimes are against the people of the USA, and only 50% are smart enough to realize that.

      BRICS+++ is on a gigantic upswing, creating markets inside itself that the USA is being left out of. The Saudi move is just the latest. You know I agree with you on the US$, but BRICS++++ won’t be the main cause, the socialistic movement of the USA itself will be.

      Think about this, the USA and the West are consolidating, becoming more bureaucratic, more socialistic with their people, as a result becoming more dependent. BRICS+++ is forming up under duress, in defense of the USA playing King of the MOuntain. BRICS is more capitalistic than the WEF or the USA Today. That is why they will win the economic world war.

            Canada is just along for the ride. Canada has no autonomy. Not of any significance, at least.

            Canada does what it’s told. Canada has many bosses: WEF, the Crown (i.e. City of London), DC (i.e. Wall Street) et al.

            Canada, like Australia, is being used for piloting agendae. Legalized weed, LGBTQ marriages, Vaxx tyranny, etc.

I hope it is allowed to be a peaceful transition, although as the Blue half controls the Deep State, they have the weapons.

        As for us in Arizona, we are a blue state now as Gallegos continues to lead Lake by a goood sized margin and the Californication is just about complete. The illegal use of the Latino onslaught in the electioneering makes Arizona a target for the Blues, as in 2020 and 2022.

Surely he should know that a nuclear fight is idiotic and despite he says he will never let millions of Russians die again like WWII, he’s dead wrong….In a nuclear conflict back to back with the West, he’ll lose half of his country and so would we. The best thing for him to do right now is just back the fuck out of Ukraine.

    Regarding Putin, I am going to give you a history lesson on who really is to blame.

    When Trump was elected in 2016, you remember Russia, Russia, Russia was the Leftist Clinton reaction of the Deep State intelligence community to try to get him unelectable.

    Prior to 2016, Rex Tillerson was the CEO of Exxon Mobil and was integral to deals with Russia and Putin to develop the north coast of Siberia for drilling for a piece of the action. Trump appointed Tillerson to be his first Secretary of State. He lasted a year before the warbird MIC/Dems drove him out.

    That was the state of relations then, just look what the unbridled socialist pigs in the country have done.

But now I don’t want to be associated with Boston because the population here is so crazy (like many places in the US). So I’ve decided to change my handle. I want to include Bill in it; I also feel very disaffected.

    My first thought was Bind – Bill is now disaffected, but it doesn’t seem to do it for me enough. Besides, we’ve already had one disaffected. I suppose I could live with this handle, though.

    I’m going to throw out something to the CFN commentariat: I’m willing to consider a new handle made up by a CFNer. My 3 caveats are it contains my name of Bill, it doesn’t mention my geographic area, and it’s not long.

    OG, you always talk about the evil purposeful ways of the Fauci virology crew, world-wide. I do believe the virologists have gotten their marching orders from the MIC as part of the NBC warfare paradigm.

    My insistence of the stupidity is the fact that they let the cat out of the bag with Covid. Clandestine operations only work if they are kept quiet. Gain-of -functional research has to be kept secure to avoid what happened, the exposure of the entire rats nest.

    IMHO, Covid was developed along with its vaxx at the same time as a potential biological agent and its “antidote” to protect its source people. Lousy protocols or whatever in Wuhan let it escape. The virology group just let it go as a test instrument to see its effect. It definitely passed the transmissibility criteria, it just did not kill enough people. I wonder what is waiting in the other labs around the world? No, I do not believe the people in charge are good enough or smart enough to stop accidents from happening.

        His name is Geert Vanden Bossche. Very quickly, he is predicting the possibility that 30 to 40% of vaxxed folks have had their immune systems so fine tuned by the vaxx – vaxx – Booster, booster, etc. that another pandemic may come forth and take them out, in the next five years.

        Read the post I did if you haven’t, it is towards the end.

          Are you saying that Murphy’s Law will gum up their plans to kill us?

          • JohnAZ June 5, 2024 at 8:47 pm #

            Did you read the damned article, he was IDed as Bill Gate’s chief scientist in the article.

            No, do you read ? Murphy’s law says that the accidental release of a virus from a lab is inevitable. And no, I do not believe it was released on purpose by the bad guys as it exposed them to world review which they wanted to avoid at all cost.

            Think where we would be if the leak did not happen. Fauci and his mob would still be gleefully creating nasty bugs in a quiet corner of the world, one of many quiet corners

          • OG June 5, 2024 at 9:05 pm #

            Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche is a veterinary doctor who also has a Ph.D. in virology. His LinkedIn profile lists several jobs in upper management positions, including a three-year stint as the senior program officer for vaccine discovery at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

            I stand corrected.

      • Blackbird June 5, 2024 at 7:44 pm #

        Yup. The poison was the Vaxx, not the “virus”.

        • JohnAZ June 5, 2024 at 7:59 pm #

          The vaxx was bad news for the same reason as the virus, the S protein. Here the government, especially Fauci, has done its damage, preventing the discovery of what does the damage by the virus/vaxx.

          My best guess from the people I have seen, is its makes no difference between the vaxx and the disease, it is the accumulation of s protein versus the immune system that does the damage. The fact that the vaxx did not reduce the incidence of the disease should have shut it down.

          The one unknown that worries me is the possibility that the Vaxx created mutated cells that generate s proteins forever, never proved, never disproved.

          Read the Post from last time about Geert Bossche.

          • OG June 5, 2024 at 8:30 pm #

            I still can’t grok what you’re saying, JAZ.

            It’s like one post you understand that they’re trying to kill us but then you turn around and argue like they were (incompetently) trying to save us.

            Which is it? What, do you think, is their motive?

          • JohnAZ June 5, 2024 at 8:55 pm #

            Their motive is to create a highly transmissible, which they got, and high mortality virus or bacteria that can be added to the NBC arsenal, which i already said.

            Why develop a parallel vaxx? To save the people you want to save. The governments, caught by surprise by COVID’s appearance, grasped at straws when they were discovered and hurried the release of the vaxx.

            If Trump was privy to Fauci’s shenanigans prior to Dec. 2019, he should pay with all the rest of them.

            The worst things is that gain of function research is still being done, probably, as well as mRNA. We have a new mRNA vaxx coming out for Avian flu, aren’t you excited.

          • OG June 5, 2024 at 9:11 pm #

            Hahaha!

            Whoosh!

            The virus was to cause the hysteria, JAZ. The virus was to have billions demand the poison (just like HIV/AIDS/AZT – Fauci’s dry run – only billions this time).

            The vaxx is the poison. They are killing us, JAZ. On purpose, JAZ. D’uh!

    My wife just found a hospital bill in an old book from a hospital in Pennsylvania for my grandfather in 1936. It does not mention what the surgery was but just the accounts receivable, the bill.

    He was in the hospital from 11/18 to 1/11.

    Ready for this?

    Room $5.50 per day. $297.

    Dressings. $5.00

    OR. $30.00

    Lab. $19.00

    Drugs. $11.00

    Total. $362.00

    Less 5% discount. $18.10

    Total $343.90. He paid $150. Down.

    Classic Judaism determined long ago that the jews were not to return to the old land until the coming of the Messiah. Zionism broke that well-established tradition. In fact, Lev. 26:40-42 makes it clear that the Israelites were NOT allowed to return from captivity until they had ceased from their “hostility” toward God. In this case, they were hostile toward the One sent by God.

    The point is that the jews were not allowed to return as Judahites until they first repented and turned to Christ. Yet because of Isaac’s prophecy, >>> they were allowed to return as Edomites <<<. Those who broke with traditional Judaism and returned as Zionists fulfilled the prophecies about Edom. They have indeed built a nation, but God says He will throw it all down in the end [ Obadiah ].

    Therefore, christians who point to the state itself as proof that Zionism is prophetic are only half right. The dominion was returned to Esau-Edom, as Isaac prophesied, but it is not the fulfillment of prophecies given to Israel.

    Ez. 35:10 prophesies, “Because thou hast said, “These two nations and these two countries [ Israel and Judah ] shall be mine, and we will possess it…”

    The state called Israel is actually Edom which has claimed the two nations and two countries (Israel and Judah), according to Ezekiel’s prophecy. Its bloodthirsty nature is clearly seen today by the whole world in its plan to commit genocide against women and children.

    We will be judged according to the same standard by which we judge others [ equal weights and measures]. As the Israelis have treated the Palestinians, so also will God judge the Israelis.

    • JohnAZ June 5, 2024 at 8:18 pm #

      Which Jews? Today’s Jews are not the Jews of yesteryear. Jesus was NOT killed by Jew average in AD33, he was killed by a very corrupt Jewish leadership.

      Western Civ just about destroyed the Jewish Europeans, they went to Palestine, they will not be destroyed again.

          Bullshit, OG, you are just feeding the same bullshit that has been the anti-Semite crowd’s excuse for centuries.

          If the BLM crowd ran down to the courthouse and were fired up by Bragg and the boys to condemn Trump to death, will you blame all NYC people in perpetuity?

          There were a lot of ‘Orthodox” Jews around fired up by the High Priests. There were a lot of Jews around that rapidly became Christians too.

          It was not Jew Average, it was Jew zealot, zealot with a small Z.

          JFK was killed probably by a Mafia/CIA conspiracy. Who should get blamed for his death? The High Priests got away with it too.

          Also, always remember that Jesus’ job was to be crucified, in His Father’s bidding. He arranged Holy Week. He stated, “Father. Forgive them, for they know not what they do”. I did not see any indication that the Father wanted all the anti-Judaism that Western Civ, has displayed through the centuries.

          You have all the right to blame those Jews all you want, it is not warranted IMHO.

          BTW, an interesting Bible statement. Jesus says.

          My God, My God, why have you forsaken me”. As the crucifixion progressed.

          Read Psalm 22, the people around Him knew exactly what He was saying, that the crucifixion was the fulfillment of prophesy in the scriptures.

          On the first coming, Jesus was the Lamb of God. On the second coming, He will be the Lion of Judah. That is Judah, you know, Jews.

          You better get your own understanding in line, OG, and quit being the judge of God.

          Oh yeah, how many other genocides has God permitted in the world. How come He allowed the Holocaust in Europe? How many holocausts are coming in the end times?

            All of you just think that Jesus the Son of God, could not have just stopped the whole thing any time He wanted?

            He was following the Scriptures, the prophets to His ultimate victory, and ours.

            His Faith is His Father was ginormous.

            Do you want to argue about the word “all” or try to sort out what you are actually saying?

            I was a baptist [ as a youngster ] because there was a baptist church within walking distance.

            I sat under Pastor William Beebe of the First Southern Baptist Church in the Canal Zone. While there I took a Bible correspondence course [ 10 lessons ] and went to cross-examine the church of Christ preacher that sent it to me.

            I would ask him a question and he would open a bible, turn the pages, and hand it to me. This went on for three hours. I had to change. I spent 18 years as a member, doing anything they asked me.

            When I learned there was more than one word for “law” I tried to share this information, but no one was interested [ “New Testament Christians” ] ie. “that don’t apply to us”. I have not been a member of a denomination since. I read everybody’s stuff, thus I go through periods of cognitive dissonance, regularly.

            There is much to learn, it is not easy. Burning idols is a full-time job.

We are made up of electrical currents and frequencies, so could it be possible that those electric currents and frequencies interact with the digital world.
