The tides are shifting. Something’s in the wind. And it’s not just the fecund vapors of spring. The political soap opera of RussiaGate ended like a fart in a windstorm last weekend, leaving Mr. Mueller’s cheerleaders de-witched, bothered, and bewildered. And then a crude attempt was made to cram the Jussie Smollett case down Chicago’s memory hole. These two unrelated hoaxes emanating out of Wokester Land may signal something momentous: the end of the era when anything goes and nothing matters.

Welcome to the new era of consequences! All of a sudden, a whole lot of people who have been punking the public-at-large will have to answer for their behavior. Despite the fog of misdirection blowing out of The New York Times, The WashPo, CNN, and MSNBC, it’s become obvious that the RussiaGate hoax was kicked off by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and a cabal of Obama appointees in several executive agencies. The evidence is public, fully documented, and overwhelming that the so-called Steele Dossier was the sole animating instrument in both the 2016 pre-election effort to incriminate the Golden Golem of Greatness, and the Mueller Investigation launched post-election to cover-up those same political misdeeds of the Clinton campaign, the FBI, the Department of Justice, the CIA, NSA, and State Department.

It’s also very likely that Robert Mueller learned that the Steele Dossier was a fraud in the summer of 2017, if not shortly after his appointment in May of that year, and yet he dragged out his investigation for almost two years in order to defame and antagonize Mr. Trump — and deflect attention from the ugly truth of the matter. It is certain Mr. Mueller knew that the Steele Dossier was purchased by Glenn Simpson’s Fusion GPS political “research” company, which was simultaneously in the paid employ of Mrs. Clinton and the Russian political lobbying agency Prevezon (as reported by Sean Davis in The Federalist). If the FBI brass did not bring that to Mr. Mueller’s attention right away, then either their incompetence is epic or they are criminally liable for concealing the hoax.

There is your essential collusion, and a lot of participants are going down because of it. Mr. Mueller himself should be summoned to a grand jury to answer for his deceitful inquisition, his abuse of FISA warrants, and the malicious prosecutions of General Michael Flynn and Trump campaign supernumerary George Papadopoulos. This story is far from over and it is now moving in the opposite direction. Former CIA Director John Brennan is going down for chaperoning the Steele Dossier through congress, the FBI, and the news media. And many others will follow. It will go very hard on the claque of lunatics like Rep. Adam Schiff and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow as the painful consequences unspool. The Democratic presidential hopefuls will have to run shrieking from this giant hairball, but it will roll over them anyway and possibly even flatten their party.

In another instance of justice miscarried, charges in the Jussie Smollett racial attack hoax were dismissed in a hasty, unannounced motion by the assistant to Cook County Prosecutor Kim Foxx, who had pretended to recuse herself from the case, but actually did not follow the proper procedure for doing it. Ms. Foxx has apparently been consorting with members of Jussie Smollett’s family and with Michele Obama’s former chief of staff, Tina Tchen, a Chicago political operator. It’s easy to imagine what they were bargaining about: the fear that Mr. Smollett would have a very hard time serving any sort of prison sentence, given his celebrity status, his sexual orientation, and the laughable idiocy of his crime. It was probably a reasonable fear — but not a viable excuse for summarily dropping the case. The further excuse that he had already paid the price by hanging out in Jessie Jackson’s Operation Push headquarters for two days is also a joke, of course.

The Chicago police chief and mayor objected loudly, as did the Illinois Prosecutors Bar Association, which declared the move was “abnormal and unfamiliar to those who practice law in criminal courthouses across the State.” An understatement for sure. What’s next for Jussie? The City of Chicago will tote up the cost of investigating his stupid prank and haul him into civil court to compel him to pay for it.

Further and greater consequences will emanate from the Smollett hoax. Despite former Vice-president Joe Biden’s recent lamentations over the wickedness of “white man’s culture,” many Americans will show a renewed interest in that hoary old system devised by white folks called Anglo-American law, which includes such niceties as due process. The Jussie Smollett scam may be the end of many intersectional culture heroes getting a free pass on their bad behavior. Won’t that be refreshing?

      I agree 100% Smollet deserves some time in the cooler as well as massive amounts of community service catering to the homeless at some shelter in Chicago. Full time scrubbing toilets and mopping up puke for a year would probably do it. He should not be able to buy his way out of community service.

      I simply ask myself, truthfully and honestly, what would have happened if this had been a common ordinary white heterosexual male with no wealth and no stardom and no friends in high places, who had falsely claimed that two black gay guys had attacked him for his whiteness and straightness? Similar verdict?

      • wolfbay March 29, 2019 at 6:00 pm #

        There was no verdict. The charges were dropped. The beauty of it was he didn’t have to admit guilt or apologize and still claimed he is the victim.

    • My Point of View March 29, 2019 at 1:29 pm #

      For his mendacity Smollett should’ve paid a fine equal to 3 times the costs incurred by the city and state in processing his stunt i.e., the old concept of ‘treble damages (cost X3).’ Failing that he should’ve gone to prison for a while.

      Smollett’s two body building brothers from Nigeria should’ve been deported asap for ‘moral turpitude,’ the same charge made against Charley Chaplin decades ago for his affair with an actress.

          Yes I am aware of his communist father.
          I am also aware he has a lifetime membership to a bath house in Chicago, his choom gang days, his name Barry Soetoro.
          He started his politicol career in Bill Ayers living room.
          His publicist said he was Kenyan born until he ran for President.
          They sealed his school records out of fear of discovery he probably said he was Kenyan to get the freebees.
          The list of Barry fraud is endless the guy was a liar from start to finish.
          He was pretty smooth until he did not have his trusty teleprompter and then he was a bumbling stuttering buffoon.
          I wonder if he ever gave up Indonesian citizenship.

        Walter, one suspects that while the latter cast of clowns would fit that baboonish model, JFK, Landslide Lyndon and Tricky Dick were rather more feral primates – dangers to all.

        My suspicion is that the puppeteers were deeply frightened by these uncaged apes, and determined that thereafter the White Zoo only be occupied by… ‘Masters of Ceremonies’.

      Hate to agree with congresswoman Omar but she realizes that Obama was just like like all the other war monger presidents but did it in a smooth polished way. Spied on Americans without probable cause and Murdered two American citizens by drone without due process while killing countless innocents with his drone strikes. Started wars without consent of congress but was still praised as a Constutional scholar. Certainly a politician of the highest order.

    Consequences are you kidding? Trump toots his horn and cultivates chaos. Chaos which which will leave him,and his entourage of sycophants leaving with the cash box and others holding the bag in two more years. Now new distractions must be found to divert attention from what the orange stain actually does. Good times to hunker down and do my own thing.

    One thing we know for sure. Trump will continue to take credit for both the sunrise and the sunset.

          A lot, lot. lot longer.

          And it will . . . . .

          In 20 years people will be posing the same question

          “How much longer can this go on?”

          And the answer will be the same.

          Think about it . . .

          this financial ponzi legerdemain has been

          in continuous play since the 2008

          “financial crisis”,

          Who is to say it cannot continue for another

          11 years, or 22 years, or 33 year?

            I am in San Diego too, and that is indeed the going rate for an apartment.

            The illegals pack themselves into a one bedroom apartment—way over the number allowed. Or else they are homeless. As if our homeless problem isn’t bad enough here.

            Illegals can get on lots of entitlement programs. Non profit agencies are skilled in helping them manipulate the systems and stay on benefits for years. Ask any eligibility worker and they will tell you what they have seen.

            Then they start having anchor babies. That is an old trick for decades. Then they get even more entitlements!

      Trump hates health care for two reasons. First, it would apply to every US resident, white or otherwise. Trump does not like that otherwise part at all.

      It would also make the United States a more decent and caring place. To Trump mind, that is weakness. Something losers and pussies do. To the Great Golden One things which accents his faux Augustinian presence and puffs up the phony is good. Anything which raises the common boat in a rising tide is bad for him because then his golden light can’t shine. An equitable society would prevent people like Trump from hiding in plain sight like the naked emperors they are. Trump hides behind chaos so his failures don’t get talked about and it works well for him. He has been doing it successfully all his life and is a master of the game.

Begin by seeing yourself in the world grasshopper. Like a seed your ability will grow but you must plant it first.

            “Trump hates healthcare”

            Is this truly a thought that went through your mind?

        It’s not just Trump that hates the idea of universal health care.
        I pay enough in taxes and my idiotic state wants to give healthcare to all right now! There version of healthcare will be worse than the VA I PROMISE!
        Meanwhile the great Socialist state of California can’t even keep the potholes filled or get the homeless people off the streets.
        Illegal aliens running all over given drivers licenses and the right to vote!
        Now driving IS MORE LIKE CRASH DERBY and let me tell you it feels like a third world country people no longer know how to drive between the phones and the people who just go and don’t look! Road rage is on the rise all over California as a result of unintended consequences which is par for the course for ALL progressive plans and laws. Everything these progressives touch turns to crap.

            No, no, benr, you don’t get it. All Janos wants to do is eliminate Capitalism and institute wage and price controls by changing human nature. As Dog would say, easy peasy.

            On Necessities, Q. As for the rest, you all can continue to compete, doing and undoing unto each other until you drop. Most of what you love about America will continue, the difference being is that it won’t turn into a Brazil North with Calcutta type conditions in every large and medium city. I know that you don’t care, but some might. UBI is the only solution, but it’s a strech for ordinary people. On this site, E is the only one besides me who seems to get it. Everyone else just bitches about how strange and horrible it will be – without offering THEIR solution to the robot revolution which is accelerating. And since the status quo simply isn’t viable any more, that just doesn’t cut it.

          • Farmer Joe March 30, 2019 at 12:11 am #

            Janos, are you for real right now? You sound like that Andrew Yang guy. He was saying in an interview I heard that he wanted UBI. When he was asked how he would fund it, he said, “Print money.” You seem intelligent, I’m sure you already know that this will lead to hyperinflation and that will bring untold misery to millions of lives in this country. Without a funding mechanism, UBI is not an answer.

            I don’t have an answer, either. However, if I were to venture a guess, I’d bet on sound economic policies and the entrepreneurial spirit. The invention of the car rendered obsolete the buggy, not the horse.

            Jesus, Janos, do you ever listen to yourself? “We’re only going to make 2+2=5 when we find it REALLY necessary. The rest of the time 2+2 will = 4.”

            And, when you say you all you mean me and my ilk, right?

            As I said, the Free Market is all the religion you have. And if its free exercise means the streets will be littered with the dead and dying, well that’s what it has to be. The Marxists have the Dialectic and you folks have the Invisible Hand.

            Socialism created prosperity in Western Europe before the dark part of Marxism made them destroy themselves with decadence, sterility, and Muslim immigration. As it did in a much healthier way in National Socialist Germany.

            Joe: Automation is accelerating. Machines take human jobs. That’s the point. Save money! Same as jacking up food prices during a famine. Make money! Despicable? Of course. Now go deep into yourself and start asking questions. I can’t do the work for you.

            Now did I ever say UBI is the best path for humanity? No, no one has ever even asked that question – too busy with their lust for profit. But NOW people begin to ask about human well being, at the 11th hour? What hypocrisy and smallness. This end result was clear decades ago. And generations ago, People were eager for it – because they thought the riches were going to be SHARED. You know, like the World’s Fairs portrayed? Like the old cartoon, the Jetsons? Oh, the poor fools…

            Back at the very beginning, some people called the Luddites did make a stink about being replaced. They weren’t anti-technological, they simply didn’t want to be replaced. They said, rent or sell us the machines, and we’ll continue to make your clothes as we always have. What temerity these riff raff had! They were crushed and their leaders hung.

            Want more? Study Gandhi and home rule. The symbol of his movement? The spinning wheel. The English were taking cotton from India, making clothes in England, and then selling in India. Gandhi and his followers said, Bullshit. And he wrote about more than just the narrow economic issue, about what kind of economy and work served Man in the deepest sense.

            Jackboots. Couldn’t be easy-peasier. Put your foot down with a firm hand, as a school chum of mine used to say.

            Preferably on someone’s face, in this case.

            You can’t change human nature, but if you pull off its fingernails and attach electrodes to its dangly bits, you can sometimes make it do what you want.

            Joe: When something stops working, double down on it, right? Just as Jared Diamond describes the Norse doing as the little Ice Age came down on their Greenland colony. Doing more of the same is not creative – UBI is.

            The Government is the one who is supposed to print money, independent of private banks. Yes, our system is supposed to tie it to silver and gold. Other more modern (and better) systems of social credit do NOT. Hitler had none – it had all been stolen by the Allied Thieves. But he had the ultimate resources – his People, their bodies, minds, hearst, and souls. It worked and it worked so well that the Enemy had to crush it before other countries adopted it.

            In fairness he did have access to gold – he just didn’t go about getting it in the normal way, so it came in small ‘pre-loved’ nuggets.Just cold.

            Alba disagrees with me vehemently, but supports Emma West being tormented for two years in treatment facilities away from her baby for the crime of public despair about the Non-White future of England. Then she agrees with that Capitalism needs a strong hand. Have no fear Capitalist Friends, we will restrain such female ilk from your dangly bits. The furies will only be unleashed on Traitors.

            Hahahahahahahahahahaha… Hold my prosecco while I have a good guffaw.

            Capitalism needs proper regulation, so that it serves society rather than the other way round. That doesn’t require jackboots or the use of Zyklon B for aggressive dental work.

            Another reason I’m surprised to hearing you arguing for UBI, Janos, is your belief in the superiority of the white race. It seems to me that every crisis is also an opportunity, and that whites, if they truly are superior, only stand to gain. It also seems to me that if your arguments are true, then UBI would only drain economic productivity (capital) away from the hands of those who are best suited to control it and put it in the hands of people who you deem as inferior. Money is power, Janos. Do you really want to empower the other?

          • Janos Skorenzy March 30, 2019 at 5:07 pm #

            Joe: I see you’ve bought into ALL the programming that the Global Slave Masters wrote for us – in this case, the Cult of Indidualism; the Marlboro Man for the proles and Ayn Rand’s Nordic Supermen Magnates for the half educated.

            We didn’t take North America from the Indians with this crap. Individuals can’t fight a whole Tribe. Nor can families. Nor can Clans. The Indians were far more organized than that. We beat them because we were far more organized than them – along with our superior technology and equal ruthlessness. When an Indian War started, settlers did the sane thing and ran for their lives back to Eastern Massachusetts during King Phillips War. In the West, they ran for their lives back to the nearest Federal Fort.

            German National Socialism completely eschews this false ideal. The Individual can be great because His People are Great – and he must serve them and make them even greater. This accords with the Spiritual Wisdom of all Traditions and even sane aspect of the Obama/Warren “You didn’t build that”. They’re right, but the Godless egalitarian State isn’t the ultimate either. Certainly not if it tries to crush superior Men.

            We didn’t create our bodies, nor did we buy them (got a receipt?). Nor did we create our minds nor do we maintain our bodies and minds moment to moment. We are not our own. As St Paul said, You have nothing you have not been given. Our task is to use well what we have been given. Raising prices on food in a famine or medications that people need just doesn’t cut it, not in this world or the next.

            I read a history of Ireland with an economic pov. The author admitted food was being exported during the famine but emphasized the necessity of so doing so as not to upset the precious economy. Man was made for the Sabbath with this brand of Pharisee. An Anglo-Irishman no doubt, or at least I hope…..

            “…and Ayn Rand’s Nordic Supermen Magnates for the half educated.”

            I’ve been clearing stuff out to make space and filling bags with books for the charity shops, from whence most of them originally came.

            There was a yellowing copy of Atlas Shrugged, which I haven’t read (don’t know how far His Nibs got with it) and for which life is too short, as far as I’m concerned. It was on the top of the pile and the dog had totally wrecked the cover, so it couldn’t go to the charity shop. So I soaked it and another similarly defaced book for a few days, removed the by-then-sticky binding and tore it up meticulously into bite-size lumps (blimey, how much volume a thick book takes up when it’s had three days of soaking) and added it to the compost.

            I couldn’t help enjoying the indignity of its demise, as it blended with the vegetable debris, dead lilies, toilet roll thingies and dog hair.

      • Cavepainter March 29, 2019 at 11:57 am #

        Uh, a minute there dog. How’d it be managed? Would all be required to pass bi annual treadmill tests and body density standards to demonstrate personal responsibility in maintaining personal health? If not passing would their SNAP cards be programmed for purchasing only foods standardized for proper nutrition/calorie balance? If children test to be unhealthy due to poor home diet would they be taken into state custody? Would those failing standard health and fitness tests be made to attend health and fitness camps to be brought up to standards? Oh boy, think of all the bureaus and agents that would be required — lots of employment opportunity. What, you say all personal responsibility for personal wellness is not to be factored in? I guess also “free” to all the illegal aliens pouring across the border.

What does that even mean? And then to attach utopia to the wreck of a corporatist system Bush II and Obama capped off is just nutty-coocoo…sorry bro but that dog don’t hunt as they say.

So I say it again since it rubs such a nerve. Trump hates health care… He despises the thought with a flaming passion that shines brighter than his birds nest coiffure. That a dark haired maid from a foreign country could be more eligible for a medical procedure than his golden majesty is something Trump can’t abide in any universe that he can imagine. And that is not very many.

            He can’t abide it because he is a base elitist yet under any universal system such a thing could happen. So Trump hates health care….

        You think O care makes the US a better decent place?

        2 admittedly anecdotal stories-

        1) A high school classmate who never had insurance was excited to get it for$90/ month. Had to have a gall bladder out couldn’t pay the deductibles and co-pays- had to declare bankruptcy. Which is what he would have done before o care. But now he gets to pay $90/ month to still have to declare bankruptcy should he get sick. BTW- now over $200/ mo a few years later.
        2) A self employed friend who buys his own insurance has watched his premiums go from $500/ mo (BO- before o care) to $2800/ month with larger deductibles and co pays. Prays him or his wife don’t actually get sick. But of course its ok because he’s rich making a buck ten a year working 80 hours a week running his own business.

        A good healthcare system would improve life in the good ole US of A but I see little evidence o care does that except giving otherwise healthy people a false sense of security.

      I think you revealed a interesting point…why would the legacy media risk “everything” (though they are already losing legitimacy exponentially daily it seems) and go along with this moronic plan?

      OK…they’ve gotten away with similar leaps of logic and objectivity in the service of their MIC masters (which includes the finance side of course) desire for war dollars before, so why would it be different this time?

      It’s possibly this simple of an explanation, especially when we factor in the level of dissonance they’ve already displayed in the last decade regarding their growing impotence. I can believe they STILL don’t realize what’s happening in the world…enlightenment 2.0. AND they weren’t hired for their critical thinking skills…hell the legacy media and their corporatist POL brethren still rely on Bernays era propaganda tricks as a staple.

    “Biden’s recent lamentations over the wickedness of “white man’s culture,” ”

    Good one Smokin John, guess we know what you been token, eh? Geriatric dotards ruling the country, what a recipe for disaster. Methinks that white man’s wickedness is much akin to black man’s wickedness, and to red man’s wickedness, and to yellow man’s wickedness as well. In fact, in searching my mind for any race of man that has no such wickedness, only the Inuit appear to be without, but then when the most consuming issue in your life is keeping from freezing to death, there probably is not much time for torturing your fellow man.

    In the olden days, all man’s wickedness was mitigated to at least some degree by our Mothers, our wives and our daughters, or simply by women for short. Now that so many of them have embraced wickedness as well and with men and women squaring off as combatants against one another, it does not appear that it is going to get better anytime soon. Fortunately for me, I have many great women around me. They keep me grounded well and beaten down when I need it. I am very grateful. I hope that one day the idea becomes popular that we can do a lot better by working together than working against each other.

        “We are all the descendants of thieves, and the world’s resources are inequitably distributed. – Epicur quoting the garretthardinsociety

        ===========

        I take umbrage at use of the word inequitably above. The correct word should be unevenly. Inequitably means unjustly or unfairly. It is NOT unjust or unfair that the world’s resources are not evenly distributed. In fact, it is an affront to imagine that the amount of resources that people have is the result of some distribution process.

        I hate the idea that there is, or should be, some bureaucrat who writes down the amount of resources and divides it by the world’s headcount and sees to it that the resulting amount is “distributed” accordingly.

        This is a sick misunderstanding of human life…or any other life, for that matter.

          @Q. Amen! For liberals and socialists, the term inequality has a moral component. It doesn’t merely denote a difference in degree or kind or scale or amount; it’s a difference… that is unjust!

          The Left wants to correct inequality—even that which is natural. Deserts should be flooded. Oceans filled with dirt. Mountains leveled. Valleys filled. Why, for example, should Mars be so far from the sun, while the earth enjoys its privileged location? Clearly we need Planet Affirmative Action. The earth should be evicted and penalized—forced to pay reparations to Mars for the harm it has caused by occasionally casting its shadow upon the red planet, depriving Mars of much needed sunlight.

      The Inuit were apparently free from war. I suspect because they lived in such small groups and had no government and no taxes. But murder and manslaughter did occur.

      • Janos Skorenzy March 29, 2019 at 12:05 pm #

        Yes, they were in fact warlike, albeit on a very small scale. Ditto the Australian Aborigines. The small scale confuses people, but dead is dead. The little Yellow Inutos (Lovecraft) fought amongst each other and sometimes, Northern Indians. They even made beautiful suits of Ivory Armor.

      • Walter B March 29, 2019 at 12:09 pm #

        An excellent point hmuller that government equals war and taxes and the bigger the government the bigger the wars AND the taxes become. Perhaps unchecked global warming might bring at least some relief from these maladies, ya think?

      No, the different Races suck in somewhat different ways. It’s a Science and one that I am advanced in the study of. As the Algonquin Holy Man told us: The Black Man’s chief failing is Arrogance. The White Man’s, Greed. The Yellow Man, Cruelty. And the Red Man, Jealousy.

      I haven’t had enough personal experience with Yellows or Reds to confirm this, but I think he had the Whites and the Blacks pegged. I have heard in other places that jealousy is huge with the Indians. People fear getting new things because they will be vandalized, or a new horse will be killed, etc.

      • Tate March 29, 2019 at 7:03 pm #

        You’re a scientist?!

        I finished reading (((David Reich’s)))* book a couple months ago: Who We Are & How We Got Here: Ancient DNA & the New Science of the Human Past.

        He says that between five & six thousand years ago invaders from Iran introduced the wheel & cart technology across the Caucasus mtns to the steppes of southern Russia, allowing a greatly expanded exploitation of that environment. The mixing of the pre-existing steppe pastoralists with the Iranian invaders created the Yamnaya culture, who in all probability were identical to the Aryans. They spread rapidly into Europe, conquering & displacing the preceding wave of neolithic farmers from Asia Minor & bringing the Indo-European language family with them. Thus, our ancestors have been in Europe for over five thousand years.

        For whatever reasons, our cultures are more individualistic than any others on Earth. That explains the greed because if you think you have to rely solely on yourself or a small nuclear family unit (the individualistic trait), you’re going to be insecure in that respect & thus more acquisitive.

        Blacks have been shown consistently in personality testing to score higher than any other groups in measures of self-confidence, whether justified or not. Arrogance follows from self-confidence, if unchecked. It is generally a flaw, but it can be a strength in individual cases. “If you can do it, it ain’t bragging.”

        The American indigenes are a mix of 1/3 of an ancient “ghost population” of North Eurasia that no longer exists but who are direct predecessors of the steppe pastoralists who mixed with the Iranians & became the present European peoples. The other 2/3 of American indians’ ancestry is from East Asia. I’ve never heard that they were especially jealous or that East Asians were especially cruel. I would have thought the reverse was true. The Japanese have a saying about being careful not to be the nail that sticks up more than others & the cruelty of the Indians of North America is legendary & indeed well-documented.

        @Janos, your “science” theory of race reminds me of Empedocles’ attempts to reduce all matter to the four basic elemental types. You might as well go all the way and declare that jealousy = earth, arrogance = air, cruelty = fire, and greed = water. I mean if you’re gonna to be a mystic, might as well go all out!

        I am curious, however, how you square your beliefs with the fact that reality so often doesn’t comport? Are whites truly more greedy than, say, blacks? Are black leaders like Robert Mugabe and King Mswati III known for not being greedy? Are black gansta rappers known for sharing their wealth?

  12. EvelynV March 29, 2019 at 10:41 am #

    Trump has broken many laws. His fear of their revelation is what made him so fearful of the Mueller investigation, not concern about collusion.

    After all, he didn’t collude so what was he so afraid of?

    The single one thing good about Trump was his desire to improve relations with Russia. Hillary’s renewal of the hardened attitude towards Russia was the primary reason I would never have voted for her.

    So now that all the champagne corks have been popped and the confetti thrown is Trump going to have to go back to worrying about the follow-up on the mountain of evidence suggested by his long time attorney that he is a fraud, a con artist, and a cheat?

    • hmuller March 29, 2019 at 10:52 am #

      Devoid of facts and evidence, you imagine a mountain of crimes must be there. Why? Because Trump was so very afraid of Mueller. Really? He didn’t look afraid to me; he looked annoyed.

      But at least you recognize how wrong it is for Hillary to try and foment cold war 2 with a nuclear power, just so she can take a revenge poke against Trump. World peace is more important than Hillary’s ego, though she would disagree.

I was glad when Tyson left because he had those live tigers on premises and I was afraid theyd get loose; whenever we were outdoors I kept my Winchester nearby, but wasn’t sure a .30 30 cartridge could bring down a tiger. At any rate one weekend when 50C was out of town some hanger onners in his posse stripped the plumbing out of the house to sell for scrap, in fact they stripped out anything metallic, essentially wrecking the place.

      Needless to say plumbers were called, but last I heard the plumbers never got paid and fhe aforementioned 50C — Curtis Jackson — filed for bankruptcy.

    The Smollett case is related to the collusion hoax, in the fact that both sprang from opposition to the person currently occupying the office of the president.

    You notice I did not say Donald Trump, and that is deliberate.
    The “choice” for the 2016 election was predetermined to be between Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.
    In other words, no choice.

    I have posted here before about why Obama could not afford to allow anyone but Hillary follow his term.

    The Democrats were so afraid of anyone but Hillary, they even rigged the primary against Bernie Sanders.

    Upon its being proved that they had done what anyone with a brain could see that they were doing, Bernie was curiously unmoved.
    Then along came not Donald Trump, but the American people, who had other ideas than the one-party “choice” given to us.

    How does this relate to Jussie?
    Jussie fancies himself an activist, and has worked with Kamala Harris, who happens to be running for president, and is a member in good standing with the so-called Resistance.

    Kamala had recently put the finishing touches on a bill, a hate crime bill. It was imperative to label lynching as a hate crime, what with so many lynchings going on, right?

    At the last minute, Ms. Harris (and Corey Booker, aka Spartacus) was prescient enough to add lynchings of gays to her bill.
    It’s a good thing she did, because wouldn’t you know it, some of those racist anti-gay Trump supporters complete with scary hats just happened to be hanging out in the bitter cold in an upscale neighborhood, when a man who filled the bill (the bill, get it?) happened by. Gay and “of color”, what were the odds?

    Well we know what the odds were, except now we are hearing that the Friends of Jussie who were seen buying bleach and rope weren’t the actual perps, and poor Jussie really was a victim of an attempted lynching.

    Having Jussie be guilty could not stand, because the excuses the MSM rand with, that he didn’t like his pay and wanted attention, weren’t going to be enough to keep anyone from looking further than that.
    Remember, they thought that the Mueller report was still going to be available to dominate the news cycle, generating negative headlines
    whenever it was deemed necessary.

    However the Jussie Smollet case settles out, the attention of the public will be off of the complete flop of the Mueller investigation, the criminality behind it, and off of the stunt inspired by Harris and Booker, to make sure the more gullible members of the public see anyone with any intention of voting for Ms. Harris’ future opponent as a racist who wants to kill gays.

    That Foxx woman will likely be rewarded in the future for falling on her word at this time.

    • Sean Coleman March 29, 2019 at 6:54 pm #

An unintended consequence to all this is that, depending on how much actual Clinton/DNC involvement is brought to light– it may cost the dems the 2020 election, regardless of the quality of the candidate. I think that might be dawning on the more insightful dem candidates, so that’s why we are then attempting to ignore the whole Russia affair. Problem however, is now the shoe is on the other foot, and the two years it took to hoax Trump will result in Trump spending the next two years litigating the democrats.

    >>> Welcome to the new era of consequences!

    It’s tempting to say that liberals don’t believe in consequences. In fact they do—but only for their own pet causes. Rule of law becomes rules of law. Different rules for different folks. Rules for thee but not for me. This selective morality is of the sort one finds in children. Indeed, the vocabulary of liberals is reminiscent of something out of nursery school. Trigger warnings, safe spaces, and hate speech share the same overly emotive concerns as blankies, snackies, and time-outs.

    Well, at least the report is done. Now, will it be released, or will they sit on it like they did on all of Kavanaugh’s papers? You can be sure if there’s anything bad in it, you’ll play hell finding out about it. Mueller will go into the blame bag now, ready to be pulled out along with all the others when it’s necessary to redirect the focus from something Trump did. That’s a pretty deep and handy bag. It goes all the way down to the Clintons. Don’t get me wrong, they deserve it, but I see that Trump supporters, when asked about some of his misdeeds, say “well what about (fill in the blanks)? Distract from his transgressions by bring up someone else’s misdeeds. Classic.

  27. Trump’s impeachable for many reasons. Duly elected, maybe.

    The opposition doesn’t control Congress, and the Republicans are controlled by lobbyists and corporations. That’s why impeachment is not happening.

    Lets get realpolitik here. Trump had one policy on offer, immigration “reform”, but its not gonna happen. He’s just not savvy enough. Not persuasive enough. Not principled, really. He doesn’t have a political goal. He rode a wave of indignation into the WH on a protest vote. He didn’t even expect to win. Nothing about his organization showed an ability to lead, let alone have an agenda.

    So the regular swamp creatures stepped in with the indispensable ‘expertise’. The institutional politicians and operatives stepped in. The coterie of gangsters.

    The real political meals have already been served… exemptions for polluters… legal egress for criminal corporate cases… trade negotiations for pork barrel global economics… the dole for various groups. Blasting a hole in the deficit ceiling, weakening regulations protecting the public, he has now assigned an austerity-type economist, a columnist from the Wall Street Journal… the frat-boy Supreme Court justice. He’s delivered red meat for the fundamentalist clique. He’s served as Rubber-stamper in chief for circuit court judges. We won’t see action on human smuggling, “that I can tell you”. He’s skillfully managed to increase family arrivals at the border, on track to see year over year increases. And the Meuller report was just political cover for all this, and more.

    Its like being in an abusive relationship, being his supporter. No matter how much he whales on you, you just soak up anything you can to revive that election-night feeling.

    I’m like the concerned neighbor, who witnesses this sad spectacle. “You should leave him, honey,” I say, but its useless.

    There’s nothing else out there for their eyes. He fills the horizon.

    So, you just wait. Sooner or later, the stinging slap across the face.

    I think its coming, and its going to hurt. But, as usual the bruises will prove he loves you.

    I think it will come in the form of some kind of deal. Amnesty for wall money.

    In the end, you’ll standing the road with your ripped pantyhose without a wall. Its your destiny.

    • Exscotticus March 29, 2019 at 12:49 pm #

      >>> I think it will come in the form of some kind of deal. Amnesty for wall money.

      Trump doesn’t need that deal. He’s got the money. Or didn’t you get the memo?

      The deal that Trump does need is an end to asylum being the tail that wags the entire immigration and border security dog. The idea that immigrants get loosed upon the nation simply by saying, “Abracadabra Asylum!” is something that can only be considered right and proper and lawful and sane by liberals and their activist judges.

      That being said, If I were Trump, I would avoid a deal unless it basically gives him everything he and his constituents want, namely, true border security and an end to immigration as we know it. Instead, I would wait for SCOTUS to rule on the issue. It’s a conservative court now, and I suspect they won’t view asylum rights in the same expansive and unfettered way that liberals do.

      • That’s insane. Better pick out your favorite color of pantyhose.

        The New York Times profiled an illegal immigrant who served in the Navy and then had a robust career in Border Patrol. The judge said “his service must count for something” and he’s up for Naval service related naturalization after 1 year odd probation. Anyone from anywhere, even with a fake birth certificate, can be America’s heroes.

        What’s next on the agenda? Obamacare, apparently. Because stepping 20 million of health care benefits is what this country needs?

        • Exscotticus March 29, 2019 at 4:48 pm #

          >>> The New York Times profiled an illegal immigrant…

          Well! The fake news NYT has clearly completed an exhaustive study on the matter. Case closed.

          First off you’re conflating a special class of illegals, the so-called “dreamers”, with all the millions of illegals that do not fall into that category. There are less than a million dreamers; there are over 25 million illegals.

          But to get to your moral question, if you rob a bank and get away with it, and you give that money to your child, and then your child goes on to serve in the military, and then the law finds out that you robbed the bank, does your child still get to keep the stolen cash?

          Of course not.

          The crime in this case was not a bank robbery, but a theft certainly happened. These illegals stole residency and are trying to pass the benefits of this theft off to their children. True, the crime was not committed by the children, but that doesn’t mean the children should get to benefit from it.

          There is no statute of limitations for unlawful entry.

      >>> “In the end, you’ll [be] standing the road with your ripped pantyhose without a wall. It’s your destiny.”

      Of course, it is their destiny, but they love their GGG more than life itself. For example, folks who inhabit the Red Zone don’t need health care, as it might cut into the profits of the corporate elite. G_d forbid, the corporate elite (aka “their betters”) forgo a little profit so that Right Wing Rubes can go see a doctor.

      If you want to see delusional thinking up close, watch the Trumpers who will bad mouth O’care and say that Trump and the Repugs are gonna give them better healthcare as they take it away from millions of Rubes in Red State ‘Merica and Trump country all over. Rubes know they don’t deserve reasonably priced healthcare, why would they? The Repug leaders have told them that healthcare is a Socialist plot. They bite on the line like starving sturgeons!

      Rubes, please hope you don’t get really sick, OK? They’ll be coming for your social security soon too, but you don’t need/deserve that either. Anything for GGG and his backers as the laugh at you behind your backs. Please, wise-up!

      Yes, the slaps continue to sting and one day your abusive “loved one” is going to go too far. The sad fact of the matter is that he has already gone too far, you RW rubes just refuse to believe it.

      To all Red State and Trumpists worldwide. He’s your imbecile, enjoy him while you can. Please don’t fool yourself that the obvious ruse of political hack Barr is going to slow the investigations down. We all know there is SOMETHING there, we just don’t know what it is the Orange GGG is so afraid of, but it will be known and quite soon, I predict.

      Don’t let me interfere with your celebrations, as premature as they may be, as I’ll be well rewarded when I hear GGG talking about rigged elections when he loses in 2020.

      Can I ask you Trumpists one last thing? Were y’all supporters of Jim Jones (he of Kool-Aid fame) too? He really had a line of bull, maybe even better than Donny, but his followers, like y’all, would and did give their lives for the con man flake. Enjoy your time in the sun with your imbecile!

    Healthcare alone will sink trump in 2020. He is just stupid enough to believe the white good will he gets from repealing a black man’s legislation will outweigh the real life health consequences taking away people’s healthcare will bring. The 20 million people who got on the exchanges will be thrown off. Those 20 million people have families and friends who will know and see and live through the consequences. He is toast.

      CNN/MSNBC/NPR are for all intense purposes backing the DNC. I think most objective people can understand that– and for better or worse. I think it just is what it is, and for different reasons. So, it’ll be interesting how cautious and/or brazen they will be. If this last major drops in their viewership is an indication, then they are in big trouble. So, that may temper their partisanship a bit. I don’t know.

    It wouldn’t be going too far out on a limb to say that the instigators of this collusion farce are dick-heads. Never mind the damage they inflicted on the body politic. They were the insiders, the ones that know the Deep State better than anyone. Why did they think they could pull this off?

    The NASA moonshot was easy in comparison, all you had to do is deal with Newtonian mechanics plus a series of engineering problems, all of which are amenable to mathematical reasoning and scientific knowledge. Physical reality is what the engineers and astronauts were dealing with IOW.

    It was the opposite in the collusion hoax. None of it had anything to do with objective reality. What we had was a series of bald-faced lies, one bigger than the other, none of which remotely had any air of plausibility, all of which were exactly what they looked like; bullshit.

    So, happily, the aeronautics just didn’t exist in this place to make a story like this fly. Not yet at least. Maybe it does exist in a place like the Philippines or in Russia where a competent and honest judicial system is a contradiction in terms. Even if you laugh at Trump and his manner and his manifest unsuitability for the august title of President of the United States, anybody with twitching brain-cells would see such logical unlikelihoods embedded in the collusion narrative so as to invalidate it right out of the blocks.

    Even if you were such a rabid anti-Trump partisan that you’d go along with this fable, you’d have to hope and pray that you had a critical mass of dishonest people in the Deep State that had the heft to push it over the finish line. And you had to assume that such people were so blindly committed to the cause of deposing Trump that they wouldn’t care about the legal consequences that could rebound on them personally.

    That critical mass didn’t exist. That much is now apparent. But, yeah, anyone not born yesterday would have to conclude that Mueller damn well knew of the frauds underpinning this thing. So, the obvious question, was the whole sorry-assed “process” dragged out to give the Democrats an assist in the mid-term elections? If the results were known earlier, would the Democrats have won back the House?

    The problem now is whether the gumption exists in the Deep State to go after Brennan and the assorted fraudsters. In short, the question is the flip-side of the earlier one. Does there exist a critical mass within the Deep State to muck out this Augean mess? JHK seems to think so, that what’s pending is an avalanche of subpoenas, arrests, indictments…

    A fine summary and well written as usual.

    These two unrelated hoaxes emanating out of Wokester Land may signal something momentous: the end of the era when anything goes and nothing matters.

    My take is that we are at a crossroads, not the end of an era. Perhaps, if we are lucky, we are at the beginning of an end to this 50+ year national decline. But decades of indifference, corruption, and deceit will take decades of repair simply to get most of our society more or less back into the middle of the political road. As it is now, the emergency lanes on the left and right are increasingly packed. And, as you might point out — do we have decades to get this done before other events overtake us ?

      That “50-year national decline” coincides with 50 years of cutting the taxes that paid for our earlier greatness.

      The 91% marginal tax rates of the WW-2 era started declining with JFK in the early 1960s and have gone down several times, as has our national strength, the quality of our infrastructure and educational institutions.

      It’s not a coincidence.

    What’s next for Jussie?

    Reminds me of the bard’s lovable gull, King Duncan, who uttered the famous line:

    “There’s no art to find the mind’s construction in the face. He was a gentleman on whom I built an absolute trust.”

    The character Duncan said this to his eldest son after the execution of the Thane of Cawdor who staged a massive rebellion to which Duncan was apparently oblivious to — until it was too late! He would be duped twice more before Macbeth stabbed the s##& out of him, his beloved father figure, no less.

    Guess who Duncan symbolizes in our time, lol? Macbeth got his comeuppance though just like our host predicts.

    After the publication of the Mueller report, or rather, the conclusions of the Mueller report, made by US Attorney General Barr, the war between Bastinda and Trump did not end, and Russia is a weapon in this war and to some extent a battlefield, but not a participant.

    And thank God that it is not a participant, since Russia, like all other countries, is divided into world projects and there is no uniform policy of Russia, just as there is no uniform policy of the United States.

    But in the US, the war is happening on the pages of newspapers, or rather on Twitter, and in Russia it would have spilled out onto the streets. Of course, it’s unpleasant that Russia is used as a battlefield, but Bastinda’s support and capitals in the West is what makes the Rat King strong, and if Trump blocks these funds due to their participation in the Steele dossier, then it’s easier for Putin to nail them.

    And Putin is Russia’s last chance to avoid a new revolution from below by the method of revolution from above.

    Yeah the Mueller Report was a sham, a hoax, a witch hunt. This from the same people who impeached a sitting president over a lie he told about a sexual act. Shamed him. Humiliated him. Could never touch Obama. He was too smart for them. Never gave them an in. We are headed for a Captain Queeg moment with Trump. For those too young to recall, Queeg, played by Humphrey Bogart, was a captain of a destroyed in World War 2. During a typhoon, he was relieved of command by his crew who thought he had lost his marbles. They saved the ship but were court marshaled for mutiny. At the trial, Queeg is called to testify and in the middle of his testimony, he pulls out his steel Baoding balls and starts twirling them on the witness stand, the sound of the clinching steel like nails dragging across the chalkboard. Trump will have his Captain Queeg moment.

        Well the Dems will try to pivot to something Americans do care about: health care. Problem is, they won’t be able to separate this issue from the 25 million illegals their proposals will attempt to cover. And so the issue of health care will be subsumed into the larger debate on border security and illegals.

    Serbia remembers…

    The 20th anniversary of the beginning of the NATO bombing of Orthodox Serbia

    Twenty years ago, in March 1999, NATO aircraft began bombing the peaceful cities of Serbia (including the autonomous province of Kosovo and Metohija) and Montenegro.

    From March 24 to June 10, alliance bombs and missiles continuously fell on Belgrade, Niš, Novi Sad, Kragujevac, Pan?evo, Kraljevo, Sombor, Valevo, Montenegrin Podgorica, Kosovo Pristina, Kosiv Mitrovica, Prizren, Gnilyane, other Serbian cities, villages, municipalities …

    In total, during the 35 thousand 219 sorties by NATO aircraft, 23 thousand bombs and missiles, including banned cluster munitions, as well as warheads with radioactive depleted uranium, were dropped on the territory of former Yugoslavia.

    89 industrial facilities, 128 service facilities, 120 energy facilities, 48 hospitals, 82 bridges, 25 post offices, 118 radio and television broadcasters, 70 schools, 10 kindergartens, 35 churches and 29 monasteries were destroyed or partially destroyed …

    Civilian casualties: 1 thousand 700 people, including 400 children, about 10 thousand were seriously injured.

    The most barbaric acts of the “civilized West” against the peoples of Yugoslavia were: the bombing of a television center in Belgrade; direct hit on the Nis-Athens passenger train; a blow to a column of Albanian refugees; the bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade; the destruction of a passenger bus near Pristina; the bombing of the Albanian village of Korish; the shelling on the feast of the Trinity Bridge in the city of Varvarin; destruction of the Avala TV tower in Belgrade …

    The use of depleted uranium by NATO is still having an effect – the number of oncological diseases is growing.

      Puck, it’s the lack of a frontier that made us weak and ineffectual. The last frontier – the Old West – ended around 1890. Now we have no place to go and nothing to do. Who wouldn’t be driven crazy?

      The new last frontier is out there in space. We could colonize near-Earth space and the Moon and send robots to mine the asteroids. Of course, it doesn’t seem likely now because we are crazy. It’s easier to sit back, eat Doritos and watch TV. To regain our sanity we need a frontier.

        Good point, Bill.

        After reading Frederick Jackson Turner’s essay in the mid 1890s about the closing of the American frontier, Woodrow Wilson said about the same thing and that was way back when he was president of Princeton.

        Its funny reading about the Philippine American War (1899 1902) and the Moro War in Mindinao (1904-1913); it was the same Generals and Regiments who fought the Apaches, Comanches and the Sioux in the west a few decades earlier. They even called the Philippinos and the Moros ‘Injuns’.

    Could it really be that the tide is turning? I want to believe it is true. But the play has been going on for so long now that at least some of the audience, maybe most, has forgotten that there is a real world outside of the theater. They forgot what sunlight looks and feels like. You know I never knew what a golem was before I came here. And now I can’t help but think that this modern world is really making golems of us. The systematic eradication of natural human behavior seems as if it is intended to transform us into mindless drones that adhere faithfully to the orders of the Masters. No matter how destructive for us and the world. The Masters want to be more than human and in the process they are destroying humanity. And they control the world with their puppets and elaborate puppetry. So it would be a blessing indeed if it all does in fact fall apart. Then maybe just maybe life and spirit will return to this perishing nation.

You’re a thoughtful person so I won’t elaborate, but proffer you the pleasure of connecting the dots yourself.

      Devin Nunes: Submitting criminal referral against FBI, DOJ over Russia probe

      Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said Thursday that he’s ready to submit criminal referrals to the Justice Department and accused the FBI and DOJ of making false claims while investigating alleged Trump-Russia collusion during the 2016 election.

      “I think we’re prepared now to submit our first criminal referral,” he said.

      “We think it will grab everybody that we need to grab to make sure that there’s a proper investigation done.”

          Yes that is true. They have made it so that it isn’t obvious at first glance. They made it so that the world is mechanical, metallic and cold. Without the Lion, the Light and Magic. And you can only find it by looking for it or stumbling upon it now. Or if you are fortunate enough that someone shows you. But it is mystical, magical, beautiful and very real all at the same time.

      As Trump progresses through his twittering reign of error, the cognomen Golden Golem of Greatness appears more & more prescient. There are a hundred useful reforms he could have put forward to address the immigration disaster besides the Wall but instead he has become the mindless lumbering creature of the very factions he campaigned against. Maybe he was always their golem.

      • SoftStarLight March 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm #

        I am beginning to think it is possible he was always their golem. He has actually embraced the idea and policy of more immigration. He also refuses to acknowledge us. Surely this is not evolution for him. These ideas must have always been there. The Elite are experts at mass deception so it wouldn’t come as a big shock if this is the case.

    I wonder what Ed Snowden is doing now?

    Former NSA Contractor Pleads Guilty To Stealing Classified Information

    Harold Martin, a 54-year-old Navy veteran from Glen Burnie, Md., admitted to willfully stealing and retaining government documents from about 1996 until 2016, the year he was arrested.

    npr.org/2019/03/28/707742550/former-nsa-contractor-pleads-guilty-to-stealing-classified-information

    According to estimates, he had a total of 500 million pages of text and images – an order of magnitude more than the former NSA officer Edward Snowden stole.

    According to one of my theories, Snowden is a liaison officer who provided the hotline between Putin and Obama, and Obama passed this line to Trump.

    In any case, this hypothesis explains the hysteria that Hillary staged around Ed Snowden flight – look how Snowden 2.0 stole more secrets than the first by an order of magnitude and everything is quiet!

    But then, if I’m right, then all this hysteria around Venezuela is created to avert the eye, while Trump and Putin are engaged in solving Hillary and Medvedev problem!

    “Alex Jones, the firebrand Infowars host, and conspiracy peddler says in a sworn deposition that his false statements after the Sandy Hook killings were caused by a “psychosis.”

    Jones made the claim in response to a defamation lawsuit brought by family members of the victims of the 2012 massacre.

    He faces eight lawsuits over his comments about the tragedy, including conspiracy theories that the shooting, that left 27 people dead, including 20 children, was a staged event and that parents of the victims lied about the deaths.”

      It is hard not to notice that the era of “Massacres Of The Innocents” in the United States – school shootings – was started by First Lady Hillary Clinton in 1993, with the cooperation from her FBI goons sacrificing 21 Christian Children in Waco, Texas, by the method of burning them alive.

  61. Imagine the US without immigrants. Pretty great to be honest.

    I don’t really care how many suburban homeowners wake up and stare forlornly at their unmowed lawns.

    I don’t really care how many suburban homeowners find the price of their processed meat to be climbing steadily higher.

    Whole regimes of industrial and chemical agriculture would collapse. Fields would become overgrown. The on-site trailers would be empty. Who is going to dn the hazmat suit and spray chemical fog? Hopefully the white bread owners of the plantation? Or not? I think the world would be better without it!

    The tourists would have to tuck-in their own bed sheets or face a $25 convenience charge. Will I shed tears for the shareholders and managers of Hilton or Best Western? I’m thinking I won’t.

    And what would the Jonesing Johns of America do without their imported central American pussy, or divine lips of Chinese women? I’ll tell you. Vacation in Mexico or Asia.

    What would America’s corporate homebuilders do without their immigrant labor force? Build less subdivision cookie cutter housing? I say bravo. Slower to build out that new freeway overpass? Fine with me.

    What about the taxi drivers, and the gas stations? Fuck em. Fuck em all.

    Who’s going to weld mufflers? I don’t know. I don’t care. Seriously.

    How about Mexican gang shooting victims? What are we going to do with less of those?

    How are we going to keep the seats warm in America’s emergency rooms? How about: I don’t fucking care.

    Will crown moulding install itself? Perhaps one day.

    How many boomers’ tears will run down boomers’ cheeks when they can’t find a reasonably priced bid to install their click-together faux hardwood floors? I hope they slash their wrists and bleed all over their linoleum.

    What about the owners being compensated for the lost rental income at the dingy former motel, now $2k/month refugee housing facility? We had a de facto open immigration policy, a sort of universal basic tenant income system going for this special slice of American entrepreneurship, but its gone now. AmeriCares may have to provide counselling.

    What will we do when certain public school teacher/student ratios plunge from 35:1 to 10:1? Rage, rage against the dying of the light?

    Indeed, who will fill the Calculus and Engineering classes at American colleges? Trick question- they’re already filled with international students.

    What about the line at the DMV? Wait times will plummet?

    What about the catholic church?

    But most importantly what will New York City slumlords do? Charge less rent? No, probably not. Which segues into the seq

    Must have Door bustering, password breaking, filing cabinet over-turning, and foreign bank account seizing skills. Must coordinate with local repo men to repossess Late Model SUVs and Taco Trucks.

    Trail courts formerly filled with the blank stares of pobrecito familias will be filled with various CEOs, managers, executives, and middling class homeowners.

    I ride my bike past the only service station left in town staffed by Americans and laugh at the mile-long line of fat people in cars.

    I’ll swoop by the melon field and see if any robots have appeared to pick grandmaw’s breakfast cantaloupes.

    I’ll stop by C-wolf’s house and see if he’s completed the Monument to the Hard Workin’ Mexican. No, its still ringed with scaffolding, all the labor has fled south.

    Then I’ll take a Quantas to Mexico City and tour the repatriated countryside, replete with Ford F150s.

    I’ll check in on the middle class families enjoying Coca Cola and the tropical breeze to see if the suffering is immense.

    I’ll stroll down to the dive bar try some of the greasy, cheap fare that we’ll miss up there in fatso land. I’ll pull some Ketchup out of my pocket to communicate that I’m an ex-pat. I’ll summon a teenage girl to my hotel bedroom with a wink and a nod and make sure to snort a rail of coke off her ass before coming back to the states with tuberculosis and HIV.

    I’ll be duly examined at the border, and declare myself an American and get waved through like a refugee. “More abuse! I want more abuse!” I’ll scream, crossing the blinding white line.

    I’ll have everything I want and more. Then… I woke up. It was all a dream. Trump was still president, and there were more coming every day. I open the shutters and the drone of a thousand lawn mowers rises like a symphony from hell. Down the street they’re at work sawing, banging, hammering, and welding on mufflers.

    A phalanx of gigantic SUVs filled with foreigners peering out the tinted windows roars past, improving my life immensely.

        When they bring out their jerry-rigged health care policies… “Whats in it for me?”

    Russiagate was an information operation from the beginning, in which dozens of individual reporters and institutions actively partnered with paid political operatives like Glenn Simpson and corrupt law enforcement and intelligence officials like former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and senior DOJ official Bruce Ohr to smear Trump and his circle, and then to topple him. None of what went on the last two years would have been possible without the press, an indispensable partner in the biggest political scandal in a generation.

      Ken Starr searched far and wide for criminality in Whitewater, but like a monster in a Stephen King novel, he refused to die and took on a life of his own. In his quest he crossed paths with a dumpy, mid-level beaucratic staffer named Linda Tripp who regaled him with a story of a young intern named Monica Lewisnsky, who was just 24 at the time. Instantly sensing a way to trap President Clinton, who was wildly popular at the time but was known for bimbo eruptions. This was nothing less than a coup de etat meant not only to take down a sitting president but also to tarnish his administration so badly that Al Gore would likely not be elected in his own right. The first failed, but the second succeeded. The press was instrumental in this attempt. And what did President Clinton do in retaliation? Not a godamned thing. It’s part of the job. People trying to take you down, take your power it’s all in a days pay. God I wish the other side would grow a pair, quit whining, and shut the fuck up.

    Jared Taylor writes his letter from Zurich airport, noted above by revilo. The Zman has a good take on it.

    The administrative state grinds its victims relentlessly, suppressing dissent even from Poland, arbitrarily enforcing its rules in what Sam Francis called ‘Anarcho-tyranny.’

    But a rising tide of dissent cannot be contained. The samizdat networks of the dissident right will eventually prevail.

            When we get visitors from Spain and France they like to bring home tokens from here, a patriotic T shirt or sometimes I will give them vintage silver dollars. For you it would be a T shirt as well: on the front the iconoc pic of General Lee on his horse Traveller with the Confederate stars and bars as a backdrop, on the frontside a massive unfurled American flag, a globe over the flag, and above it all screaming Eagle clutching an M16.

            What Confederacy fans do is their own business as far as I’m concerned – your history, your arguments.

            I’m just not a fan of walking through the streets as a naff message bearer, whether it’s high-fiving General Lee or advising passersby that the end of the world is nigh-ish. As for flags, I’ve already explained my lack of interest in the fetishising of pieces of patterned fabric beyond some very limited appropriate contexts. And my T-shirts are off limits to dickishness of all colours. In real life, I’m an ‘I’d prefer if you didn’t really notice me’ kinda person.

            So, yes, I’m a rebel against naffness. No-one over the age of 15 has any excuse for thinking that displaying their…ahem…thoughts on a T-shirt or a bumper sticker makes them a rebel of any kind whatsoever.

            If people want to chat to me over a glass of wine and tell me more about General Lee I’m happy to listen to them.

  66. nytimes.com/2019/03/29/world/middleeast/isis-syria-women-children.html

    Its time to give this paper the pulitzer. I forked over $3 today for the issue. This article… amazing.

    ‘On a rare visit to the foreigners’ section of the camp on Thursday, a team of New York Times journalists found a miserable international tableau of lost women and children. Along muddy, trash-strewn lanes between rows of white tents, we heard groups of women chatting in English, Russian, French, Dutch and Chinese. We saw blond- and black-haired children playing together in the mud.

    A German woman told me she had come to Syria with her husband, a doctor. Now she had no idea where he was, and she was stuck in the camp with a baby in her arms and a curly-haired toddler gripping her leg.

    But she did not want to return to Germany, which she considered an infidel country.

    “I don’t want to raise my kids in a society that’s totally corrupt, where every sin is promoted,” she said, declining to give her name.

    It was better to tough it out in Syria, she said. “This is temporary. The afterlife is forever.”

    Although the Islamic State no longer controls the vast territory that that once stretched across Iraq and Syria, the women in the camp still followed its rules, wearing black gowns and face veils with slits for their eyes.’

    Unbelievable huh? 72,000 mostly women and children. Still fully erect for Shariah and the afterlife.

    Maybe China has it right and what the West needs is a sort of re-education camp of its own. The methods? I have no idea. LSD. MDMA. Separation and repatriation to isolated Caribbean islands with a Truman show style remote manipulation. I really have no idea.

    If JHK is right, and a deluge of investigations, subpoenas, indictments and trials are in the offing, it will be interesting to see how the heroic self-image of those propagating mis-information and fraud intersects with the workings of the legal system.

    They say that Flynn faces legal bills of five million bucks. That is a tall price to pay for telling a fib about doing something that wasn’t illegal. The lawyer fees would likely be a whole lot taller when there are actual felonies at issue.

    Media people that stood tall and told it like it wasn’t, mis-representing themselves as heroic truth-tellers when they were neither, made fools of themselves. But will any one of them ever face legal peril? I’m not a lawyer but it seems to me that their offence was more along the lines of professional dereliction in a “profession”, if it can be called that, that hardly has clean hands anyway. I think the journalistic business model is more at issue than the law of the land. They say that the New York Times abandoned any pretense of impartiality and objectivity and took sides and that their partisanship bolstered their bottom line. So too with CNN. So did a lot of others. They discredited themselves. But what about their future business prospects? Are they now doomed to be low-down shills, nothing but propaganda rags? Is that their business model?

    What about guys in intelligence and law enforcement functions that engaged in misrepresentation? If legal proceedings against them start and the legal bills mount, we’ll see how long the jut-jawed bravery lasts. When do they start selling out one another and “co-operating” for a reduced charge? I wonder if the cause of keeping Trump out of the presidency will be worth the loss of liberty and the financial ruin. One thing is for sure, the financial ruling class will dump these guys overboard as sure as the day they were born. No loyalty from them and so I doubt they’ll find cozy sinecures after prison. Maybe working in a grocery store. Maybe.

      What IMO will be key here is if any of the so-called journalists conspired (in the legal sense of the word) with anti-Trump government officials. This “soft coup” could easily be viewed as a collection of criminal acts, and, if that view is taken, then aspects like conspiracy and aiding and abetting will be considered in any investigation.

      we’ll see how long the jut-jawed bravery lasts

      Not only the financial costs, but some of these families make intel and law enforcement (or work with the federal government in general) the family business, and having Daddy or Mommy convicted of felonies will prejudice the chances of their children having similar careers. For all the talk of unbiased hiring, hiring into the federal government system is very much based upon networking, and it is not uncommon for the children of employees to get hired simply because they are so-and-so’s son or daughter. So, the people under the spotlight have more at stake than one might imagine.

      Cheers

    Dark Germanic Genius

    The most amazing thing is that the new Rammstein’s clip “Deutschland” managed to eclipse in the news feed events in Venezuela and the US civil war, which, in full accordance with my interpretation of the Mueller-Barr report, is only gaining momentum, and even recognition by the United States Golan Heights as Israel territory.

    youtube.com/watch?v=NeQM1c-XCDc

    And no wonder, this is indeed a very powerful work of art, truly expressing the spirit of the times in which we live. And we are the inhabitants of the planet Earth, and not just the people of Germany or the Fourth Reich.

    The fact of the matter is that the Reich is a spiritual concept, and Reich with a number is the earthly incarnation of this concept, which, regardless of number, when incarnated, immediately seeks to spread to a planetary scale, invariably ending this feat in a 6-foot hole in earth.

    And the first thing that catches the eye in the news feeds is the indignation of some incomprehensible Jews by this video.

    That is, they are not outraged by the Waffen SS, marching through the streets of Croatia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Ukraine, and the Rammstein’s movie outraged them? Why? Because this time the Nazis are marching triumphantly over the land of Germany, let it be a cinematic Germany, but Germany nevertheless!

    And the first thing that catches your eye when watching this video is the fact that a black woman personifies Germany in this video and in this connection I must say that I personally was most surprised at the number of decoding of this video that I found on the Internet. And as the adept of the political history of the arts, I must say that Rammstein dug in this video very deep and even a very knowledgeable person could not decipher it with a swoop.

    There is not a single frame, not a single beam not carrying a hidden meaning, and only to show the inadequacy of these decodings, I will draw your attention to a few points that are really on the surface, but understandable, only to people who have either graduated from a German school, or at least somewhat knowledgeable about the history of Germany.

    In particular, they are aware of the difference between the myths of the “Elder Edda” and the German mythology “Songs of the Nibelungs”, talking about the same events from diametrically opposite points of view, representing the difference between the Scandinavian culture and the culture of Germany.

    For Russia, this difference is of great importance, since the main strategic task of the Black World Project is the creation of an anti-American and anti-British Russian-German alliance, which will inevitably be a chimera, since Russian culture undoubtedly originates from the Scandinavian culture. Actually it is precisely this that is the main theme of this video, but the talent of the performers clearly led him beyond that.

    So the black personification of Germany performed by Ruby Kommi is undoubtedly the “Black Madonna”, the statues of who suddenly appeared in rather large numbers in different parts of Europe in the 12th century, that is, at the height of the Fourth Crusade.

    The mythology of that time connects them with the secret cult of the Templars, which is not surprising, since according to a number of sources, the Madonna that breast-fed the creator of the Templars, the inventor of racial anti-Semitism and the main inspirer of the Fourth Crusade the “holy” Bernard of Clairvaux, with her milk, was later called “the Black Madonna of the Chatillon Cathedral”

      Bernard of Clairvaux 1090-1153 encouraged the Second Crusade. The Fourth Crusade occurred 1202-1204; that was the one where they sacked Constantinople.

      • FincaInTheMountains March 31, 2019 at 2:48 am #

        The “holy” Bernard of Clairvaux is not only the main inspirer of the Fourth Crusade, of which the Northern Crusades were part, but also the infamous Generalplan OST that last time was stopped on May 9, 1945.

        en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generalplan_Ost

        • hmuller March 31, 2019 at 10:41 am #

          There’s nothing in that wikipedia article which says Bernard of Clairvaux “holy or not” was the inspiration for the WW2 genocidal plan to kill millions of Christian Slavs. While he might approve the killing of Moslems, I think he would oppose such treatment for good Catholic Poles.

          I see your ego won’t allow you to admit a mistake, regarding confusing the 2d with the 4th crusade.

          I thought I was reasonably educated. But I must admit, Fincaln, that your comments often leave me scratching my head (and no, I don’t have head lice). They are like footnotes in some historical tome of a different, though similar world.

  73. FincaInTheMountains March 31, 2019 at 3:06 am #

    The first frames of the clip refer to 16 AD, and are clearly related to the battle in the Teutoburg Forest when the Germanic tribe of Cherusci under the command of Arminius seven years before had crushed three legions of the Roman Army, which actually undermined the myth of its invincibility.

    Unlike the battle in the Teutoburg Forest, the battle of Idistaviso took place on a vast and carefully chosen field and was the culmination of the punitive expedition of Rome against the Germans of Arminius.

    And the personification of Germany in the performance of Ruby Kommi appears in the Teutoburg Forest as the Witch Grimhilde, sending rain to the Roman legions in order to soften the bowstrings of bows and lose their destructive power, and at the end of the video she wears the severed head of Hagen, so that he would drench in terror and reveal to her the burial place of the Nibelungs treasure.

    P.S. The most interesting thing is that the Black Madonna theme is central to the continuation of the history of San Marino, which unexpectedly turned out to be at the center of world politics and Russian domestic politics.

    Trump is going to shut down the Mexican border. He’s going to turn the Republican party into the party of great healthcare. He’s going to repeal and replace Obamacare. He’s going to build the wall. He’s going to establish a Space Force. He’s going to do nothing, and he’ll bloviate the whole time he is doing nothing, and in the end he will accomplish absolutely nothing. They will consolidate all of his tweets into a book and it will become a best seller, with Trumptards far and wide kneeling in the direction of Trump Tower 6 times daily and repeating the limericks of “Trump’s Terrific Tweets,” in unison of course.

        PeteA,
        I was never taken in by the “Evil Russian Cyber Geniuses” narrative. It simply never made any sense. The American people being really pissed off by their self-serving political class was never in doubt (in my mind, anyway), because I felt the same. (Don’t deceive yourself about the number of “believers” in the Republicon camp; although that 40% *approve* of the supposed collaboration. — CNN poll; large dump truck of salt recommended.)

        …And I don’t consider myself ‘center’ (= hard right) or ‘right’ (= much harder right). The motives never matched up in the daylight.

          yeah I agree with you there. I never bought the story.

          However, as Jim points out– will we ever see a full chain of events in this story? Probably not.

          I’d really like to know who leaked all the emails from Clinton. Assange intimates that it is a DNC insider. He has said in interviews that “people would be surprised as to where the drop came from.”

        So Grief as you put it out is a lie. A heavens to Pete nuclear Atomic lie. Dirts on you. Both sides were using the Russian Hoax for their own purposes. Trump played Russiagate to his advantage right down the line and he still does and I see you are here to help.

        Trump is beguilement made flesh and has the con mans skill to turn any criticism not canned tight with so much evidence it can’t be ignored into his own cannish advantage. Criticizing critisism is what Trump does best.

          ha ha well, I don’t think I’m ‘promoting my own propaganda’ just an opinion on an article. That’s all. Taibbi’s headline for his own article by the way is: “Taibbi: On Russiagate and Our Refusal to Face Why Trump Won
          Faulty coverage of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign later made foreign espionage a more plausible explanation for his ascent to power”
          So, apparently he is addressing his fellow liberal leaning colleagues in the press (?) That’s what it seems to me. And yes, he appears to be at the last stage of grief: Acceptance.

          I agree with you about Trump using Russia hoax to his own advantage. All of these players are politicians, after all– Trump included. I think he was simply a better entertainer then the rest.

      “If the Supreme Court rules that Obamacare is out, we will have a plan that is far better than Obamacare,” Trump told reporters on Wednesday from the Oval Office.

      He repeated the claim to reporters on Thursday and again in a rally on Thursday night in Michigan, saying, “Republicans want you to have an affordable plan that is just right for you.”

      Vice President Mike Pence’s office has joined in, sending out an aide to tell reporters that the “president will be putting forward plans this year that we hope to introduce into Congress.”

      Trump went so far as to hold a phone conference with Republican senators Tuesday, during which he encouraged them to come up with a replacement plan for Obamacare.

      All this maneuvering, however, needs to understood strictly as theater, meant to hoodwink voters into thinking that Trump wants to save their health care. Of course, he has no plan to do that, and there’s no reason to believe he truly intends to come up with one. Even if Trump does have some vague idea that Republicans can just toss out Obamacare and then pass a new bill that is basically Obamacare under a different name, there’s no indication that he or the members of his administration are interested in actually doing the work required to make that happen. So this should all be understood as an effort to trick people into not noticing that health care is suddenly a lot harder to get.

      So dismiss the thought I was going to forget hmuller, Ishabaka, liberty ghost, farmer joe and others of the shape shifting nature.

        RT

        Jayda Fransen, the former deputy leader of ultranationalist right-wing Britain First group, was convicted of inciting hatred for a speech about Islam in Belfast in 2017, while leader Paul Golding was acquitted.

        Fransen was also separately convicted for additional comments she made while filming at the peace wall in the city. District Judge George Conner said her speech at the ‘Northern Ireland Against Terrorism’ event was a “vehement attack against a religious group,” the BBC reports.

        She told attendees that Muslims are “baying for our blood,” and that “Islam says every single one of you wonderful people here today deserves to be killed.” Fransen added that it was time to come together against “the one common enemy.”

        “I’m satisfied these words were intended to stir up hatred and arouse fear,” Judge Conner said at the trial.

          I looked this up and it is a shame. Its too bad that people are not listening and consider truth hate speech. For those who don’t get it I am not sure what will ultimately convince them other than war itself. And unfortunately if the migration continues that is what is going to happen. She gets it and so she’ll be punished for it while the betters can feel good about themselves and their morality. They have that luxury while there is still relative peace.

    Is it people’s fault that they end up on the street? Yes, just as it is the fault of iron that it cannot bear the stress the way steel can. In other words, fault is the wrong word. It is not iron’s fault that it is not steel. Likewise, people vary tremendously and individuals shouldn’t be all expected to be able to bear the same strain. Policy must be based on people as they ARE, not as Conservatives or Liberals imagine them to be.

    Some individuals can learn to do better of course. The analogy is not perfect – if it were it would be an identity not an analogy. But for the aggregate, it is apt. Things are what they are because they’re not something else. And being something else, it has its own nature, be it better or worse or just different. Maybe iron is good for something that steel isn’t. Can’t think of anything offhand, but as Chuang Tzu said, the valuable is a target while the common is left alone. That’s something, eh? Wear your iron on the outside in the days to come, but let your mind be steel and your heart, gold.

      In all fairness Vlad, and Im no fan of Biden, he’s being ‘accused’ of giving a political ally a comradely innocent peck on the back of the head, on stage in front of a crowd of people. Its hardly a brutal rape. But the word must have gone out, “take down Joe Biden”, and this is the best they could come up with.

I am a strong believer in Men’s rights, but he is clearly a bridge too far.

    The Witch Grim Hilda… == Green Alba

    Celtic ideas about the witchcraft

    I was very surprised when, after the death of Margaret Thatcher, for several days news feeds were dominated with dazzling headings like that Anti-Thatcher’s song came out on top:

    Anti-Thatcher song hits top of U.K. pop chart
    cbc.ca/news/world/anti-thatcher-song-hits-top-of-u-k-pop-chart-1.1303793

    Well, or “Thatcher’s funeral drama continues,” namely, this was the title of this news, although it is about refusing to invite the President of Argentina to the funeral.

    First of all, I was surprised to find that, despite the fact that the UK invited all the countries that had normal relations with it to the funeral, the Thatcher family turns out to object to the presence of Christina Fernandez de Kirchner at the funeral as during Thatcher’s premiership Argentina was at war with Britain.

    If the Prime Minister or the Minister of Foreign Affairs had objected against this, I would understand, but why the family? Argentina did not personally fight with Thatcher or with her family.

    But the fact of the matter is that we are witnessing the emergence of some very powerful processes in the collective unconscious, associated with the end of the “micro-epoch”, which indeed can apparently be called the era of Margaret Thatcher.

    Moreover, it is a “micro-epoch” because of the smallness of the time interval, and in terms of the scale of events and the changes it made, it would be better to call this era global or rather planetary.

    I will first say that even the elite, and not only the English-speaking, are shocked by the fact that the entire English-speaking world is listening to Judy Garland singing “Ding-dong, the witch is dead!” It has been 40 years since Margaret Thatcher earned her nickname, Meryl Streep starred in the role of “Iron Lady”, and still people listen to this song, which at least means NOT the omnipotence of the media propaganda!

    But no one wants to go to Better World under the accompaniment of such pop music and very many will have to revise their predictions on how they will look in history books and in people’s memory.

    It came to the fact that the participation of the Queen of England in the funeral was not at all obvious. It turns out that history is not necessarily written by the winners.

    In this incident, the media and the “freedom of speech” showed themselves at their finest. At first, the media simply tried to ignore what was happening, but when the song ” Ding-dong, the witch is dead!” from the movie “The Wizard of Oz” won first place in the popularity ratings, the question arose of what the BBC would play in the program, about the records that took the first places in the charts. At the same time, they cannot but understand that in trying to ban the playing of this song, they attract additional attention to the fact that today the word “witch” is not associated with the children’s tales of the Grimm brothers.

    By the way, I already wrote that the Irish and Scots behaved as if some kind of witchcraft had really saved mankind, and the circumstances are such that their foreboding can be justified. In any case, making such an assumption, I had in mind precisely this situation, when the market in the USA, having received a signal to stop the quantitative easing program, which is similar to a signal of intent to raise the discount rate (that is, to slow down the printing press), responds to this signal with powerful boost of the markets. And this is more like Reaganomics, not Thatcherism, and in principle, moving in this direction, one can hope to overcome the economic crisis of Thatcherism, which has been called the global economic crisis.

    The literature discusses Thatcher’s and Ronald Reagan’s friendships and they were probably united in their desire to destroy the Soviet Union, but in fact they were opponents in the field of economic policy, since Reagan tried to stimulate material production in every way, and Thatcher was engaged in closing mines and other “unprofitable” production and caused all the humiliation of workers in the UK.

    But with whom she really was friends, it was with Alexander Hague, who, after the attempt on Reagan, was not ashamed to assume the Presidential powers, not at all bothering himself by the formal procedure for the transfer of power prescribed by law.

    And in this there is indeed some kind of mysticism, since he was also buried with great scandal.

    In particular, it was then that the Bolivarian Congress took place in Mexico, at which delegates reiterated their support for Argentina’s desire to return the Falkland Islands, and for which Thatcher launched the war. Moreover, her death served as a pretext to remember that it was Alexander Hague who, contrary to the direct order of the President of the United States, transferred to the British fleet, which was going to liberate the Falkland Islands from the Argentine occupation corps, the satellite tracking of the Argentine “General Belgrano”, and which was sunk by the British Nuclear Submarine.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARA_General_Belgrano

    And together with Alexander Hague, they finally buried the Monroe Doctrine, according to which there is a commonality of interests of American countries, forcing them to jointly oppose European countries.

    P.S. My English friends told me that Margaret Thatcher officially sent an invitation to Gorbachev on her 80th birthday in 2005, but she also called unofficially, but strongly urged him to call in sick and not to cloud the holiday with his presence. And in general, I had the impression that she was largely repentant. In any case, I personally need her as a kind of antipode to Gorbachev in his attitude to life.

      Flippin’ ‘eck, Finca, you sure can make a lot out of an offhand pun.

      But I’m afraid the iron lady’s ‘close friendship’ with Pinochet would have taken her definitively into grim witchiness for me, even if her callous disregard for working people and cynically selling off our public housing stock to manufacture Tory voters hadn’t already done it. Among other things.

        I thinks he doesn’t want things like this posted. That is why the well is perpetually being poisoned.



        According to a likely reliable source.

        “drones mistakenly hit more than 30 adults and children in the past year.”

        It is hard to know exact numbers as President Donald Trump revoked a requirement that mandated public disclosure of the number of civilians killed in drone and other attacks on terrorist targets. He is after all, a pig.

        In 2009 and 2010, Obama punched Yemen, Somalia, and Pakistan with 186 drones murdering the innocent and not so innocent alike. Donald Trump’s drones during his first two years on the same (undeclared) battlefields were more than Obama’s. More blood but without any blood on his tiny hands. Seems nobody cares, or knows. He distracts so well.

        Obama launched 186 drones and in the same amount of time Trump launched 238 drones. The source of all this are The Daily Beast, U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), and The Bureau of Investigative Journalism in London. But I’ve always know he was a pig. For decades.

        • BackRowHeckler March 31, 2019 at 9:54 pm #

          Hey Kdog, if Prez Trump and Obama weren’t using drones for these airstrikes they’d be using F22 Raptors. What the hell diff does it make? At least with the drones our pilots aren’t at risk. And the F22s carry a bigger payload so they’d probably wipe out more people than the drones. You should be grateful we’re using drones, not complaining about it.

          Maybe those airstrikes, every one of them, were necessary, how do you know they weren’t?

          I’m not saying you should worship the drone, but respect the drone. That’s all I’m saying.

    There’s nothing in that wikipedia article which says Bernard of Clairvaux “holy or not” was the inspiration for the WW2 genocidal plan to kill millions of Christian Slavs. While he might approve the killing of Moslems, I think he would oppose such treatment for good Catholic Poles.

    I see your ego won’t allow you to admit a mistake, regarding confusing the 2d with the 4th crusade.

    I thought I was reasonably educated. But I must admit, Fincaln, that your comments often leave me scratching my head (and no, I don’t have head lice). They are like footnotes in some historical tome of a different, though similar world. == hmuller

    Sorry, I thought it was self-obvious.

    If you read carefully my post, you’ll notice that I said that Bernard of Clairvaux inspired the Fourth Crusade, I didn’t say that he personally lead it.

    For example, I could say with some reasonable confidence that the Great October Socialist Revolution in Russia in 1917 was inspired by Karl Marx, despite the fact that by that time he was dead and buried.

    Also, I would be careful “studying” Wikipedia as a final arbiter in discussions – it is good for quickly referencing some facts, but when you try going in depth – that’s a whole different matter.

    I have an experience of trying contributing to Wikipedia – on a completely apolitical mathematical matter – and I know quite a few things how the process works – it could be highly political even on seemingly neutral matters.

    As far as the “anything goes & nothing matters” mentality – – we all know that has never been true.

    We “gotz” all kinds of situations that matter.

    We have Wall Street taking a hard look at fracking returns on investment – and presently turning off the seed money. That matters.

    We have Airbus 380’s going offline and no longer being ordered because it cost too much to fly big planes filled up for longer hauls. its cheaper to “hop” and refuel than fly a big gas guzzler non-stop. That matters.

    We have mass migration’s of tens of thousands people all over the globe because their native social/political resources system are so lacking that anything – anywhere is an imagined improvement. That matters.

    We have weather extremes that routinely disrupt social, agricultural and economic status of millions of people. How many millions of gallons of fuel will be required to put right the hundreds of thousands of river adjacent acreage no longer tillable due the current flooding in the Midwest? That matters.

    Just saying… there’s plenty – that matters – on the radar – but most people are still watching SNL or binge bwatching HBO…….

    • My difficulty is that, not only has it seemed that nothing matters my whole life, but that anything goes.

      Just try stopping an American from doing whatever they wanna do.

      Anything goes is Mantra in this country, at least inter-urbanly.

      What is the countervailing force against anything goes? I can grasp that, soon, gasoline won’t be there to power their locomotion. But unless something truly amazing happens, they’re not going to even think about anything they don’t wanna pay attention to.

      The New York Times reaches just half of one percent of the population with its print edition.

    I was at an event Sunday, at a gun club in rural NW Ct, what we call an Easter Ham Shoot, about 100 guys with shotguns, everybody respectful, polite, lot of little kids around, competitive but with plenty of joking and laughter, just a good time. In our little group we won two hams and a $50 money round.
