The unravelling of the USA gets its summer steroid booster shot this Thursday when the political twerk-fest known as the January 6th Select Committee commences prime-time televising of its inquiry into the so-called “insurrection” the day that Congress met to tally the 2020 electoral college vote when hundreds of protesters entered the US Capitol illegally, egged on and enabled by a squad of FBI plants larded through the crowd, and by shadowy figures inside the building who unlocked the doors for them.

The objectives of this extravaganza are A) to soften up the remaining “purple” voters before the midterm election, B) to paint former president Donald Trump as an instigator of the uproar and an enemy-of-the-people so he won’t be able to run for office again, and C) to punish former White House employees and Trump partisans with onerous legal fees so as to knock them off the political game board.

The Party of Chaos certainly doesn’t need to reinforce the mass formation psychosis of its base who maintain that the 2020 election was the fairest-and-squarest in US history. The committee members will chant the talismanic phrase “The Big Lie” ad nauseam to ward off reasonable suspicions that they are the ones doing the lying. Since a kind of maniacal stupidity attends all the party’s doings these days, it could easily backfire on them. Even two years later probes are still pending in several swing states, and only a few weeks ago, the documentary 2000 Mules released time-stamped videocam footage of blatant wholesale drop-box ballot-stuffing around the country.

Lawsuits filed lately also claim the committee itself is illegally constituted, since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi disallowed (against the rules) the minority Republicans from appointing their own chosen members. Instead, she did it for them, planting the vehemently hostile rogues Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger on it, meaning no witnesses will be called who might refute pertinent details of the “insurrection” narrative already constructed. Much of the testimony presented will be videotaped interviews with Trump White House officials and there will be no accounting for what may be edited out. In other words, you have an obvious setup for a star chamber, a device for disregarding individual rights and fair procedure.

The context, of course, as I aver above, is a country that is imploding six ways to Sunday — to paraphrase Chuck Schumer, the Party of Chaos’s Senate leader. At least half the public is already onto the extravagant damage inflicted upon our national life by the beneficiaries of the 2020 election. Thanks to “Joe Biden,” the dollar is hemorrhaging value, we instigated a war in Ukraine that will lead to global famine and mass refugee events, oil and natgas are unaffordable thanks to our destabilizing of global distribution networks, spare parts are unavailable for every imaginable machine in the land, the business model for farming is broken, real estate is groaning under rising mortgage interest rates, the CDC is still pushing Covid vaccines despite proof that they are ineffective and harmful, cities are overwhelmed with criminal violence and psychotic homeless drug fiends, and, as a final indignity — actually, an advertisement to the world of our depraved weakness — the US military is hosting drag queen shows at our European air bases.

Are these the circumstances that American voters are expected to endorse in the November election when all these conditions are liable to get a lot worse? Apparently, the Party of Chaos thinks so, since they’re delivering exactly what they stand for. And yet, they’re clearly nervous about it, as if they suffer fugitive doubts that we-the-people are avid for cultural and economic collapse.

My advice, then, is to take the televised January 6th hearings for the grand entertainment it’s intended to be. Enjoy the sob stories of the Capitol Police officers pretending to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. Behold the terrible “threat to our Democracy” of the bare-chested interloper in a horned helmet chatting-up security guards in the Senate chamber. Note the “insurrectionists” taking seditious selfies in statuary hall and trying to fob off with souvenir furnishings. See Rep. Liz Cheney fulminate with scorn and disgust against her orange nemesis. Sympathize with committee Chair Bennie G. Thompson as he bangs his gavel and cries for order when any live witness utters the name Ashli Babbitt. Watch Rep. Adam Kinzinger turn on the waterworks. Take it all in and ask yourself: who exactly seeks to subvert this republic of ours?

    (not our merit , nor our fault)

    Being born human, it’s not easy to relinquish one of the foremost – if not the foremost – human trait: to have prejudices.

    Everything humans do is transient – I don’t know why the things we do which are destructive leave a longer lasting impression than the constructive ones.

    (Or maybe I do know: in general, the human brain has a yin slant.)

    To spice things up, let me add that the human brain has been shifting: the masculine brain is turning increasingly yin, while the females’ brains are becoming increasingly yang (the I Ching rules!)

    (Please spare me: if you are a regular here then you do have a “negative” bias brain.)

    And then you might ask, “so what?” To which my reply would be: have you ever considered why the slant, why the drift?

    Fate? Who’s behind that?
    (The Everlasting Dissatisfaction)

    • si June 6, 2022 at 9:57 am #

      Being a ‘regular reader’ of these pages…. Do I have a “negative bias” or a “reality” based one?

      If reality ‘is’ negative, then being negative is not a bias.

      “Life is nasty, brutish and short”.

      Yes there are good things and the totality is not just the narrow toxic slime produced by the feckless self interested class (aka the ‘elite’)

      • Cavepainter June 6, 2022 at 10:20 am #

        Thanks, si, for your “match point” against the sophistry of Armenio.

        • Anthea June 6, 2022 at 1:47 pm #

          It’s not even sophistry. Every line of Armenio’s post is something he pulled out of his ass.

          • Armenio Pereira June 6, 2022 at 2:08 pm #

            The food you deemed so tasteful not long ago soon to become loathed manure, yet so precious for the land to remain fertile.
            Nothing remains precious forever – Nothing remains noxious forever
            Some things anew – Some things decay
            Everything changes – The Everlasting Dissatisfaction remains.

    • SomeoneInAsia June 6, 2022 at 10:05 am #

      I think the very fact that you have such high regard for the I Ching already shows that certain things humans do are not so transient after all. The I Ching is more than 2,500 years old, yet there you go drawing upon and praising its contents. 🙂

      • Armenio Pereira June 6, 2022 at 11:01 am #

        Thank you for your words.
        Assuming that the I Ching has a human origin, perhaps it is the human translation of the Universal Truth.
        I was not objecting to the transient nature of things, just wondering out loud why we humans seem to be hardwired to see things as imperfect (and, since I believe in The Eternal Dissatisfaction, aka God, things are indeed perfect, regardless of my constraints & bias.)

        • messianicdruid June 6, 2022 at 6:15 pm #

          How can eternal dissatisfaction be perfect?

          • megabeth June 6, 2022 at 7:05 pm #

            I think he meant perfect in the sense of the whole, or finished thing. It is part of the whole of the human history–we are a dissatisfied and questing species, and probably will never change.

          • messianicdruid June 6, 2022 at 9:36 pm #

            When God is “all in all” we will have peace.

            I guess “eternal” threw me off.

    • Ron Anselmo June 6, 2022 at 10:34 am #

      Reality is neither negative nor positive – reality just “is”. Negative or positive is the spin (bias) one puts on it. Simple as that.

      • Jarek June 6, 2022 at 11:41 am #

        In other words, No God, as the Vampire Lord of Siberia said in Thirty Days of Night.

          There’s a whole industry working to disprove God.

          • kimmasad01 June 6, 2022 at 4:49 pm #

            According to those who produce and fund “industry”, those who are 33° Freemasons- members of secret societies that fall under or within broader Freemason witchery – according to their favorite book, Morals and Dogma by Albert Pike, atheists are considered vulgar, profane and philistine.

            33° Freemasons don’t seek to disprove God at all; however, they do vilify Jesus Christ (Freemasons deliberately reproached the name of Jesus Christ by transforming it into a swear word- yes Freemasons did that), and seek to disprove that Jesus is the foretold Messiah- these 33° Freemason ghouls both hate and fear him, conversely they worship they enemy of Christ, Baphomet, it is not clear whether Baphomet is a demon or Satan himself.

            Watch for their sigils- the hidden hand, the secret handshake, one eye, hexagram, pyramid, compass and square (which is really a sex position) lightening strike tattoos and/or make up, the horned hand signal, and more. 33° Freemason ghouls love their sigils.

          • MaryQueen June 6, 2022 at 7:55 pm #

            Indeed. Read Vigilant Citizen dot com on a regular basis and you will learn it all.

          • Redneck Liberal June 7, 2022 at 3:49 am #

            Indeed. Read vigilant dot com to have all your deluded biases confirmed. In technicolor.

          • hmuller June 7, 2022 at 11:01 am #

            I see Redneck Liberal is still faithfully coming here to learn the truth, though he will vehemently deny it.

          • MaryQueen June 7, 2022 at 9:56 pm #

            The pedos and satanists are out in the open. You don’t have to believe in ’em, they’re boasting and showing it off.

            I’m not sure how anyone can miss it.

            Oh well.

        • Ron Anselmo June 6, 2022 at 1:18 pm #

          Janos – what God has created – all things – some call negative & some call positive – the free will we’re given.

          • Jarek June 6, 2022 at 2:30 pm #

            Ok, but what are they in Truth? From the pov of Truth – which some call God?

            First things first. You started in the middle, as does Libertarianism. It’s logical from there, but that’s too late. First Principles come first for a reason.

            I used to talk to my Jewish friend in this vein when it came to politics. He once looked at me and said, Americans hate this kind of thing. How right he was! Thus what we see before us.

    • Rowdypiglet June 6, 2022 at 10:57 am #

      “(Please spare me: if you are a regular here then you do have a “negative” bias brain.)”

      I think you will find that regulars here are onto this kind of framing, especially when it’s accompanied by a command as to what reply we’re permitted to make. We’re not required to “spare” you the discomfort of making arguments you can’t refute, so I’ll proceed to ignore your commandment and make my chosen reply: you don’t have sufficient information to know what sort of bias (if any) any of us may have. That’s not intended to refute the observation that humans are prejudiced, but simply to state the obvious, which is that you don’t know any of us. That being so, it would be wise of you not to TELL us what our personal characteristics are.

      • Armenio Pereira June 6, 2022 at 11:06 am #

        Can I at least try (just for the sake of human curiosity)?

        Or can I just point out the limitations of those you dislike?

        (You must abhor mirrors, no?)

        • benr June 6, 2022 at 11:17 am #

          For a brief reply don’t cast stones in glass houses or as some would say look in the mirror and do some deep soul searching you might just figure out how full of shit you really are.
          Or not!

          • Armenio Pereira June 6, 2022 at 11:44 am #

            The Whole is perfect – disliking the parts is just a state of mind/temporary mind’s eye constraint.

        • Rowdypiglet June 6, 2022 at 1:15 pm #

          You can point out the limitations of anyone you choose. My objection was to your attempt to control the response of other people, and to assume you knew the mindsets of people whom you don’t know at all.

          • abbybwood June 6, 2022 at 1:34 pm #

            In the meantime, the 1/6 Commission is refusing to publicly release 15,000 hours of video from that day.

    • Jarek June 6, 2022 at 11:39 am #

      Yes, to be part of a culture is to have a particular perspective – and be prejudiced against other perspectives. Just like being a regular here. You don’t understand your own pov very well. Sad, because it’s a good one. You need to do a sys dump and delete files that don’t accord with this. Try all things by the best within you, in other words.

      • Armenio Pereira June 6, 2022 at 11:42 am #

        Thank you.
        I’m trying (it takes a lot of unlearning, though.)

        • Armenio Pereira June 6, 2022 at 12:16 pm #

          I suppose that’s why I’m changing from Linux to FreeBSD (is taking a lot of effort and constant head-on crashes against my cumbersome shortcomings, mind you.)

      • Beryl of Oyl June 6, 2022 at 12:17 pm #

        IIs that really prejudice, though? If one tries to see things from another’s point of view, but then decides their own is right?

        • Jarek June 6, 2022 at 1:14 pm #

          Don’t forget the subjective – right for me or right for you, or for my people or your people.

          But use with care: This doesn’t apply to objective truth like mathematics, science, etc.

          • messianicdruid June 6, 2022 at 6:31 pm #

            Okay, is this subjective or objective?

            whatabeginning.com/Misc/Wonders/P.htm

        • GreenAlba June 6, 2022 at 2:41 pm #

          Prejudice is literally pre-judging – believing something or deciding on something without investigation or proper consideration.

          So agreeing or disagreeing with something before considering it properly would be prejudice. Considering all sides and still preferring your own interpretation would be something else (simple subjectivity?) although it might be affected by insurmountable prejudices that made it difficult to consider objectively.

          Or something like that … 🙂

        ============

        Thank God you wrote that^ Runatic. I had/have no clue what any comment above yours means, especially the first comment by Armenio Pereira. It is causing me to feel mentally inadequate. And I don’t see what that initial comment by Armenio has to do with today’s essay by JHK… not that there is a requirement that there MUST be a connection.

      • Anthea June 6, 2022 at 2:04 pm #

        @ LagingRunatic:

        I concur.

      • brudder June 7, 2022 at 8:45 am #

        Amen to that. Such horseshit.

    • Anthea June 6, 2022 at 1:43 pm #

      I’m thinking we here have an “objective reality” bias.

      Armenio seems unaware that there is such a thing–or unwilling to accept it. And hogwash is most convincing when cloaked in Eastern mysticism–or Walt Disney, if all else fails. Oh! I forgot the Beatles’ line, “Nothing is real, nothing to get hung about.”

      • Armenio Pereira June 6, 2022 at 2:04 pm #

        What’s the word for a truth no one believes in? A lie?

        (Yep, Cassandra – those pesky Greeks got it all figured out a couple thousand years ago, without resorting to the ironically named devices… I wonder how they did it.)

        • GreenAlba June 6, 2022 at 2:45 pm #

          Why is a truth no-one believes in a lie?

          • Armenio Pereira June 6, 2022 at 3:20 pm #

            If you don’t believe in said truth how would you call it? A rumor, perhaps?

            This is my probably haphazard way of exploring why we humans seem to be so at odds with Truth (admitting that truth is something so self-evident no human being with a modicum of good sense could deny it). I have this nagging feeling that the pursuit of knowledge is our way to compensate for our estrangement from Truth, but I’m just speculating here, trying lazily to come up with the right combination of words which could explain it all (I know, humility doesn’t live here anymore.)

          • GreenAlba June 6, 2022 at 3:26 pm #

            “If you don’t believe in said truth how would you call it? A rumor, perhaps?”

            You asked what it was, not what people would call it.

          • Armenio Pereira June 6, 2022 at 3:54 pm #

            Words are not things, words are superstitious labels humans use to name things.
            When it comes to Truth, semantics more likely than not are just dead-ends.

            [Achievement is pilling up (material goods, knowledge); perfection is narrowing down (opinions, prejudices, conceits, concepts.)
            Being able to cope with the demands of everyday life equipped with the shortest range possible of opinions is – eventually – my endeavor.]

        • jim e June 6, 2022 at 8:24 pm #

        • Anthea June 8, 2022 at 10:44 am #

          You are indulging in a line of thinking that is probably proscribed somewhere in Leviticus, under the general heading: “Don’t eat shit.”

          Fanciful thoughts happen to all of us, just as BMs do. But don’t be dousing them with an I Ching vinaigrette and bringing them to the dinner table.

          If the good Lord failed to mention this in Leviticus, it was probably because of an assumption that nobody was that stupid.

      Armenio –
      How did such a strange comment end up being first? Was this person waiting ,,,, waiting for that moment to jump in? Get a life man.

      To answer your question about why the male human brain has been shifting toward yin, it’s simple chemistry. Our environment is full of estrogen mimics and endocrine disruptors. In cities, density may play a par too. (Remember mouse eutopia.)

      “Prejudicies” as you say, is a funny word. To pre judge something, one makes assumptions based either on appearance or on past experience or a combination. In an evolutionary sense, it means navigating the present based on the past. That’s what intelligence is all about. Politcal correctness has owned the word and turned it into a negative, but I’m not buying that.

      What Trump’s minions wanted was an honest review of the thousands of affidavits that had been presented that the election was rigged.

      With the power of the Deep State across all levels, there was no way and continues that way.

      Trump’s second term, sans impeachments and investigations may have broken up the evil morass that has formed, especially in the judicial.

      Pence showed what he was, a spineless Deep Stater, when he did nothing, not even a speech acknowledging the suspicious nature of the election results and insisting continued investigation, or out and out delaying the state count until samples of investigation could be run. The Dems could not allow that to happen, and Pence went along with them.

      Over and over, the enemy presented by the CFN blog is the Deep State, totally corrupted by RINOS like Pence, Kinzinger, McConnell and Cheney. Voting RINO does not fix anything, it actually makes things worse as it allows the Dems to parade around their “bipartisan” buddies.

      Deplorables, gird your loins, Purples, use your heads, “Are you better off than three years ago?”

      Stop the WEF and the Biden Mob.

          Like it or not Bill Clinton broke his oath of office by lying about the affair and even having sex in the office.
          I can’t think of anyone anywhere who would NOT be fired for cause doing such.
          It was not cheapened by the Republicans but by Bill Clinton for not doing the right thing and simply resigning in disgrace.
          Now to the brass tacks the DEMOCRATS attempted impeachment of a sitting president because they simply did not like him that is the ultimate form of cheapening the process and damaging our government.
          Frankly I am at the point I think everyone should be fired and we start all over with fair free honest elections with voter id required to cast a ballot and massive over site on the counting process.

          • Beryl of Oyl June 6, 2022 at 12:31 pm #

            He wasn’t in the Oval Office, and I don’t see any part of that oath where he swears not to be a pig at work.

            As far as the lying part, he wasn’t lying about a thing that was in any way illegal or a danger to the Republic.

            What business did these “investigators” even have asking him about such a thing?

            Resigning in disgrace? Seriously?

            BTW a lie told under oath is not necessarily perjury.

            Notice that Clinton beat the proceeding, because most people could see it for what it was, a flagrant attempt to remove a duly elected president for political reasons.

            For some reason some believe to this day, that a president who commits adultery is breaking some kind of unwritten law.

          • hmuller June 6, 2022 at 1:06 pm #

            I agree Beryl. Lots Presidents commit adultery and all Presidents lie about all kinds of things. Personally, I despise the Clintons. But for the greater good of the Republic there should have been a higher bar to initiating impeachment.
            Now we see the consequences. Impeachment everytime the House opposing party has a hissy fit and a bare majority of votes.
            The Republicans may get a majority in November. Start making a list of every lie Bedpan Biden has uttered. There must be hundreds.
            I used to drive an 18 wheeler.
            I was arrested in the Jim Crow south for marching for civil rights

            @b.o.o.

            The resident in the Whitehouse must hold a security clearance.
            Having sex with interns while being married is cause to lose said clearance as is lying under oath.
            The other part of this was he had sex with her in the oval office!
            He was also reported to masturbate and shoot the load into the garbage can.
            Bill Clinton is a scumbags scumbag but even he seems to fall far short of the current resident.

            No sure what part of this you don’t understand but there it is.
            I understand dirtbags have sullied the office before but they were not called into the carpet for it.
            Bill had far more cause to be fired than Donald.

          • Paula D June 6, 2022 at 2:37 pm #

            Security clearance, Benr?
            When the military is holding drag queen contests and there is a tranny as Health Secretary and a dog-boy fetishist as some other high official (forget which one)?
            At this point I can’t imagine what would constitute a “security risk” in this country.
            It used to be said that the only scandal that would get rid of a politician would be being found with a live boy or a dead girl, but the Franklin boys night-time tours of the White House and the Joe Scarborough dead intern in his office put the lie to that old saying.

        Ah, the deep state, what on earth would we be without them, I mean after all what would we be without Putin to blame all our woe’s on. Trump didn’t do a damn thing the four years he was in office except give the 1% a huge tax cut including himself, hide in his bunker while the BLM did over a billion dollars worth of damage to the cities, and tweet fake news, fake news like some kid on a playground or a bird in a cage, in reality Trumps as much of the deep state as the rest of the 1% and three letter agencies. You were coned by the conman from NYC, but aren’t intelligent to know it. The wars still raged the weapons kept flowing into Ukraine, the working class was no better off, in fact worse off due to the tariffs on China which drove up the price’s the government were the ones who made out. And you’re still whining about something that you should have done years ago when you had the chance to vote for someone who could/would have done something for the country, and it will be no different this time as you will send the same old thieves and crooks that make up the congress back for another term.

            He got us out of the expensive and phony Paris Accord. He didn’t do enough to get us a closed border, but the Republicans tried to hinder him on that as much as the Democrats did.

            He did quite a number of smaller things that we his supporters were pleased with.

            If you want a more comprehensive list of his accomplishments, look at the stacks of documents they were setting in front of Joe, in his first days in office.

            Biden was undoing everything Trump did.

        • workingclasshero June 6, 2022 at 11:25 am #

          I don’t buy that left populist prognosis that Trump was more of the same. He opened up Nationalist faction in the Republican party that was always there, but he strengthened it over the older Neo-conservative ruling class faction. He was guilty of trying to appease it because the Neo-cons and Neo-libs were 90% of the Elite in the federal govt. This is common knowledge of course, but Trump was and still is important for the Nationalist/Populist right to still be relevant in electoral politics. Even if we fail it will be done in plain view of the National Public which might compel fence sitters to draw certain conclusions. I like DeSantis and Abott like allot of folks, but Trump still has my vote for now.

        • JohnAZ June 6, 2022 at 11:31 am #

          This pack of TDS lies, right out of the MSM needs addressed

          Trump did one main thing during his four years, he kept the globalists at bay from taking over the US economy, especially the AGW folks that are currently shutting down the US.

          The tax cut did move dollars down to the middle class, but dot forget that encouraging company and corporate growth increases jobs which Joe is claiming credit for right now.

          Trump went after the whole St. George BLM era, giving blame on both sides. He also knew that his talking on the subject would just ignite things any more. Sometimes silence is golden.

          The Twitter thing is such a joke, I am surprised you bring it up. For years, people complained, especially the MSM that the WH did not communicate enough. So you get a president that discussed issues almost daily and he is excoriated for it. In my observation, he mostly answered attack from the Leftist bullshit lying screen that was always in play.

          The Ukraine became a morass of Biden corruption during Trump’s years, well documented like Watergate was. The working class enjoyed the lowest unemployment rates in history, especially minorities. He wisely used tariffs to control the Obama inspired take over of the US manufacturing economy, he should have cut the SOBs off at the knees to bring back our economy.

          You have been conned by a MSM that is so Left, actually progressive. You may believe that a Bernie inspired globalist takeover of the country is a good thing, I see it as a collapse of American excellence.

          C’mon, CFN, do not let this Leftist apologist make lies center place to this blog.

          • Paula D June 6, 2022 at 2:42 pm #

            I think that Trump could have used Twitter far more to his advantage. If he had explained his policies, instead of sniping at opponents, it would have been better.
            However I still am glad that he didn’t start any new wars, he tore up the TPP on his first day in office and he protected girls by signing a decree to keep boys out of their locker rooms and sports.
            I have no idea who bluedog thinks would have been better. Nickname aside, surely he doesn’t mean HRC?
            I voted for Jill Stein. Maybe he means her.

          • Paula D June 6, 2022 at 2:44 pm #

            It is possible that Trump DID use Twitter to discuss his policies and I just don’t know it because I am not on Twitter and the mockingbird media only talked about the sniping.
            If anyone knows, I would be interested.

          • Bilejones June 6, 2022 at 4:19 pm #

            The big thing Trump did that was instantly forgotten was to kill the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
            This would have set up an unaccountable body under the control of global corporations able yo over-ride national sovereignty.
            The Paris accord was a mere bagatelle in comparison.

          Bluedog, that won’t work here. Every one of us could answer each of these charges, but it’s been done before and would be a waste of our time to try to keep telling someone who refuses to know. Whatever his failings, Trump did many things of value, and we could all list most of them. The most certain indicator that he isn’t part of the Deep State is to be seen clear as day in the myriad of ways they attempted to undo or block every single thing he did while in office, while pursuing him on a personal level with absurd lawsuits and impeachments. If you think that’s how the Deep State rewards those who serve it, you are even more confused than you appear to be.

            ===========

            Trump’s failings were/are twofold:

            1. His revolting narcissism

            2. His revolting New York accent of the Queens borough variety. (Bernie S. also has a revolting NY accent but it is from a different borough… Brooklyn) They could only be worse if they were from Staten Island or the Bronx. (Why do we always say THE Bronx?

        You know it’s bad when we have to point to Bill Maher as the voice of reason.

        • Rowdypiglet June 6, 2022 at 12:03 pm #

          Although I usually ignore him, I was really angered by Bill Maher’s rant about the lawlessness and ruination of San Francisco. Up to a point, everything he said was on target, but he just had to placate the lunatic left by dragging Trump into it at the end, knowing full well that Trump was not the one who allowed BLM to trash the city or enacted laws forbidding the arrest of criminals.

          We all know that if Trump had sent troops into these cities at the height of the riots, he would have been pilloried for that as well. I don’t mind calling out anyone for what they have actually done or failed to do. But to single someone out for blame no matter what they do (even things you would praise if someone else did them) is a characteristic of the left that is particularly loathesome.

          • Beryl of Oyl June 6, 2022 at 12:46 pm #

            Yes. Maher pretends otherwise, but in the end he always bends the knee to PC.

            Some think what he’s really doing is warning the Left when they’ve gone too far…for now.

            The dial it back, but only for a period of time.

            Maher is not a stupid man, I don’t know what it is about Donald Trump that bothers him so.

            Maybe because Maher supported Barack Obama, so he has to keep up the pretense that at least his guy was better than Trump?

            His guy was a commie front man, bent on destroying America.

        You’re right, Walter B. It doesn’t matter if you believe or don’t believe in an actual personification of evil. If a description of the devil at work is also a complete and accurate description of present reality, your response must be the same as if the devil is real. And, whether the elite worship him or not, their actions are indistinguishable from those of someone who does worship him, and are therefore effectively the same.

It is only a matter of time before the midwest/southeast portion of the former USA forms its own new country (at least 10 states have secession committees now), and lets the rest of the former US form whatever entities it can patch together, or just turn into complete shitholes worse than they are now.

      If the US were a petri dish watched over by a disinterested researcher, then yes, secession would be a natural outcome to our current situation. But it isn’t.

      Everything is carefully stage managed. The fake “insurrection” and now the fake hearings that follow it are evidence that nothing is left to chance – or the people.

        Noting left to chance? The Russian SMO was outside the beltways wished-for outcomes. Then you have Gonzalo’s Lira’s view that mainland Europe will turn away from the US in order to survive since their economy simply cannot function without Russian energy and food. The notion of a sharp curtailment in US – west Europe interaction will have consequences of a type and extent I cannot predict.

        • Blackbird June 7, 2022 at 1:11 am #

          I agree. Europe deserting the US is part of the plan.

          Complying with US sanctions will cripple Europe. Mostly peaceful immigrants will burn Europe to the ground to keep warm this winter unless Europe turns to Russia for life-support. I can see the governments of Europe letting that fire burn for awhile – as long as it is the immigrants and not the natives keeping warm. It will be interesting to see at what point Europe is allowed to abandon the US to wed itself to Eurasia. Europe is ruled by the Europeans no more than the US is ruled by its people.

      California and Oregon as a new nation state with the U.S. taking a corridor from the Mexican border to 75-100 miles north to keep San Diego as a naval base. Then an African American nation state in the south to the east of Texas to the Atlantic excluding parts of Florida but including the Carolinas and eastern Virginia and Maryland, Washington DC and Delaware. You want an ideological division of the US this will do it. 80% of Blacks vote democratic and soon most of the west coast does to. Compensation for people having to move could be more than generous for Property and effort and upheaval and could be done over 50-75 years or whatever number of years to ease transition. The still very large and powerful UNITED STATES OF AMERICA which will be more homogenous politically and ethnically since by then the southern border in Texas and to the west will be controlled as opposed to open.MY American utopiahttps://www.censusscope.org/us/map_nhblack.gif

        Blacks get no part of Florida at all. The Hispanics take the southern part and can decide what to do with the Black non-Hispanics. The rest goes to Florida Man – or Whites. We keep the Gulf Coast entire, all the way to New Orleans. We have to keep SSL in the White.

        Maybe this White nation can join with White Texas. Maybe not.

      • Rowdypiglet June 6, 2022 at 12:13 pm #

        The division is not as you suggest. It is, in fact, blue cities versus red rural areas. If you look at it in that way, you realize how impossible such a division would be. Maine – for instance – is considered a blue state because of Portland and Augusta, but it’s decidedly red everywhere rural. This is true even of Vermont, which presents as red because of Burlington and the colleges; in the country, it’s firmly red. Same for rural Pennsylvania, which is pretty much the ideological opposite of Philadelphia.

        • beantownbill. June 6, 2022 at 1:02 pm #

          I agree with you. Your comments today are very good and make sense.

        • Jarek June 6, 2022 at 1:21 pm #

          Yes, a valid point. But in some places, the blue extends well beyond the cities – as in Southern New England. In some places, the cities form megaplexuses and extend a long way – such as the East Coast down from Boston to Washington. Or the Seattle megaplex.

          In other places, the cut off is quite sharp. Illinois is a red state dominated by Chicago. Pennsylvania is a midwestern state dominated by the East Coast megaplex, aided by a few other large cities.

            I meant to say Vermont was blue except for Burlington and the Colleges. But yes – Boston has eaten the surrounding areas. Anyway, my point was that the lines would be impossible to draw in a way that would satisfy anyone, with the possible exception of carving off a part of California or Oregon.

          I really get tired of everyone just handing the South over to blacks. It is as you say Piglet. Separate the urban areas from Georgia and it’s as red as it gets and that includes a large portion of blacks.

          What’s to be done with the white trash component? There is no giving areas away to this one and that one. If we make it real uncomfortable the sorry assed ones can just move. I’m not giving one inch of my home.

          • cbeard June 7, 2022 at 6:48 am #

            I whole heartedly agree farmgal. I don’t like the idea of handing the South over to blacks either. I am a bred, born and raised Georgia boy and I love the South, even the heat and humidity. Like minded people must band together and work for a common future. Whatever happens, it is going to be hard, maybe impossible, but it will take a lot of cold, hard, steely resolve and may even somehow include some blacks in the scenario, but with the current racial climate, I don’t see how.

          • Amman June 8, 2022 at 9:45 am #

            Nobody is handing anything to blacks. They were in America 150 years before the Non-Latin, Anglo Europeans arrived in Jamestown. And 400 years before the dumb eastern Slavic f-cks arrived. You better recognize your estimation of their rights and status.

        • Anthea June 8, 2022 at 10:26 am #

          The main difficulty involved in secession is that every state’s urban areas constitute a “fifth column.” And there is a lot of federal-government dependency, even in rural areas. Think: ag subsidies, government employment, social security, and welfare.

          My area is in the exurbs of Kansas City. It appears to me that an awful lot of its more affluent residents are government employees/retirees. It is also helpful to remember that a true “private sector” scarcely exists any more.

          If Missouri were to secede, almost all that federal money goes away: no welfare, no food stamps, no ag subsidies, no businesses subsidies, no federal funding for schools (which would cut school funding roughly in half), local governments, and medical care. Theoretically, the social security checks would keep coming, but I can see those being cut off as a punitive measure.

          The whole state would be plunged into chaos.

    • Hereward the Woke June 6, 2022 at 2:26 pm #

      Agreed, Neuro. Even if conservatives capture all the high ground in ’24, it won’t change a thing because 50% of the nation will still hate everything America stands for. I cannot see any other option but some kind of secession. I don’t see it being peaceful, either, because leftists don’t understand “live and let live”.

    When I read of possible 2nd amendment revisions/eliminations, I am not comforted by the fact that this hearing even exists, the encouragement of riots fomented by the storm troops of the left, and the forced vaccinations.

    Yes, murder is horrible but don’t restrict the rights of the 99.999% because a literal handful of deranged individuals are not checked by their own families/society.

    You people worry too much. The US wasn’t going to last forever; the only variables were when and how. Well, now we know: the when is now, and the how is playing out as we type.

    Whites are concentrating in Trump states/counties, and blue zones are open to a flood of immigrants. Overshoot, depletion and degradation have set the framework for scarcity, exposing the rot of 100 year surplus.

    Knowing full well the coming collapse, the unitary is attempting to utilize the existing federal apparatus to implement control and restraint systems to help them maintain power.

    Traditional independent Americans will decide those conditions are unacceptable, and will move to resist such orders and mandates. The conclusion is as obvious as it is/was inevitable.

      You inform us that we worry too much, and then set out a list of undeniably real things that any sane person would worry about. I’m not at all convinced that these purported “traditional independent Americans” in whose existence you believe will put up a serious resistance when they have not done so thus far. It’s a bit late to resist when you’re on your way to the re-education camp. You also forget (not that you would care) that a possibly high percentage of people who comment here are past an age where we’re still active out in the wider world. I suppose you consider anyone past a certain age as a useless eater anyway, but you may feel differently when you reach that age yourself (if you do).

    • Anthea June 6, 2022 at 11:52 pm #

      Ah, but how will they move to resist?

      Individuals and families will resist with whatever means are available to them in their particular circumstances, so the forms of resistance will be highly variable.

      The simplest option, and the one that will cause the least upheaval, is to simply refuse to comply, and there are many parts of the US where this is and will continue to be feasible. If it gets to where it’s no longer feasible, you might have to figure out whether it’s feasible to move to somewhere where it IS feasible.

      I just got back from a trip to Morgan County Seeds, an Amish-run seed and garden supply store in Barnett, Missouri, which is well into Amish country amidst a solidly Germanic population. It’s a different world down there. But I suppose that, like the Holy Spirit, the Satanic spirit “bloweth where it listeth,” and even the most peaceful, fruitful, and verdant of worlds may be blighted.

      There may or may not be a safe haven–somewhere.

      Would I fight for my home? That would depend on whom I was fighting. Thieves? The county sheriff? The US army? It would also depend on my estimate of the likelihood of winning–which would depend on dozens of other factors.

      If I didn’t believe I could win, I would “get out of Dodge”–with an eye to making a well planned and well executed exit to a more promising location–preferably with my worldly goods as intact as possible.

      Millions of people would be making these same calculations, based on millions of unique circumstances. The conclusion is thus neither obvious nor inevitable.

      The historical recklessness of the Chinese tends to work both for and against them. You hear of the business successes of the diaspora, now marshaled by the PRC into improbable corners like Argentina and Angola; Chinese adventurers suffer catastrophic failures as well. But they roll with them.

      Maoism dampened such exuberance for several decades, or rather channeled it into worship of a defective dictator. Once the native entrepreneurial spirit of a gambling race was let loose, under Done Shopping, they went to town and stoked up the China we see today – not to mention the great fortunes of the overseas Chinese – something like “a cloud of floating trillions” to [mis]-quote the erudite and brilliant Sterling Seagrave in LORDS OF THE RIM.

      One main reason they are able to steamroller over more cautious (prudent) local peoples wherever they set up shop is a willingness to go big or go bust. The chase is the point.

    Those trying desperately to steer and contain the culture into a timeline of their making will find the premier and run of their “Jan 6” show a big failure.

    Along with this not mattering to many the fact is very few people watch tv these days. Also summer is nearly here and the opportunity to block out the political static will be too enticing.

    The controllers know they’re in a different climate and atmosphere yet they don’t know how to do anything different then they’ve always done. It’s why things are so obvious to us. It’s why things seem so weird.

    It feels like we have to wait for *them* to crash and burn before we can move on.

    Well, ladies and germs;

    Situational Awareness, this AM reports;

    JAN 6 PRIMETIME SHOW WANTS TO OVERHAUL VOTING: The House committee investigating the Jan 6 Capitol Hill protest is struggling to reach a consensus on their recommendations. Instead, lawmakers will use their highly produced primetime broadcast to reintroduce abolishing the electoral college, overhaul the Electoral Count Act, pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, and the For the People Act. Rep. Cheney (R-WY) said the committee risks losing credibility by suggesting outlandish responses. – D.M.

    Hmmm…abolish the Electoral College..overhaul the Electoral Count Act, and pass t he John Lewis Voting Rights act

    …What could possibly go wrong?

    I’ve mentioned it before, Mr. Kunstler is known to the mainstream, if he can get this good a grip on current events, what is wrong the the MSM?

    Here is Emerald Robinson’s take:

    “The problem with American corporate journalism today is that its “reporters” are the least curious people on earth. They do no homework. They fact-check nothing. They have no subject expertise in any field. They’re cowards who write with the constant fear that one stray sentence about a Democrat politician can end their career. Facts don’t matter to them — if they lead to an inconvenient ideological outcome.”

    In today’s political environment, one wonders if Britney Spears could even come out today with a song entitled “I’m A Slave 4 U”. Since the Dixie Chicks changed their name to simply The Chicks, then I guarantee this would be a foregone conclusion.

    This is likely why this Britney song does not seem to get play time on the radio stations anymore.

    • Hereward the Woke June 6, 2022 at 2:34 pm #

    Judeo/Christian Old Testament predates all the Johnny-come-lately philosophic writings; notably, carried through from Mosaic times (Pentateuch) via strict protocols for copy scribes. See the ‘Isaiah Scroll’ account in the “Dead Sea Scroll” narrative.

    In O.T book of Daniel see chapter 4 mention of “Great Tree”, analogous to the exemplary influence of New World/USA founding documents on the affairs of mankind. Note “Great Tree” brought to edge of destruction in Chapter 4 RSV translation. Certainly looks like USA is in such a precarious state about now. Then look at Deuteronomy Chapter 28, verses 14-15, giving account of transition from a blessed to a cursed period. Shedding innocent blood… Food Distribution is a harbinger and means of removing populations leaving intact infrastructure. Food district branch rail lines removed during mid-20th Century are an existential missing link.

    Daniel 4 v-15 tree narrative describes bands of Iron preserving the tree roots from complete destruction, permitting eventual return to intact viability. Railways. Interesting commentary and papers from such EMP savants as Richard Clarke; Anthony Cordesman and most recent piece by Strategic Magnetic Pulse expert Peter Vincent Pry relate current rogues gallery of dictators intend USA Famine. Famine for the USA is a common thread in Dictators’ native language speeches and their military leadership policy paper. See Der Putin EP threat last month against EU Headquarters in Brussels. These things are happening -not hyperbole!

Centuries later the Khazars took over and now Smorgasbord Religion ru[i]ns the world [ system ].

    Forget the hearts and minds. When inflation goes off the charts, people ALWAYS vote with their wallets. If the left tries to change the election results this time then civil war will truly be here live and in person. The purple gang in the middle will vote with their pocketbooks when Biden’s handlers ( Obama & Co.) do this much damage.

    • Rowdypiglet June 6, 2022 at 1:13 pm #

      It would be ironic if we were saved by our love of comfort and desire for money, but this thought does give me hope that we won’t put up with this indefinitely. People really won’t choose lining the pockets of the Biden family (disguised as liberating Ukraine) over their own lives. When they can’t afford a place to live, cannot keep warm in winter or afford to eat, they’ll do more than attempt to vote them out or remove the stupid little Ukraine flags from their twitter profiles. Even people who seem totally inert will perk up surprisingly and do all sorts of unlikely things when they get sufficiently scared and hungry.

    • Hereward the Woke June 6, 2022 at 2:37 pm #

      • Anthea June 7, 2022 at 1:02 am #

        I think they are far less likely to revolt than to go on a looting and rioting spree. They’ll target stores until the stores are empty, and then they’ll target their neighbors. And after that they’ll target their increasingly distant neighbors.

        You are very unlikely to see leftists embrace “The Gods of the Copybook Headings,” when politics, to them, are nothing more or less than a mechanism for stealing other people’s stuff. When they’re scared and hungry, other people’s stuff will be far more attractive to them than politicians’ promises.

    Americans are so degraded. People today just don’t have the toughness, grit, mettle, and high survival potential that they had in the past. I guess character, virtue, integrity, et al all slowly erode away as the new generations of humanity come onto the planet.

    Any sane, survival-oriented, citizenry would’ve marched on Wash DC decades ago and ousted the corrupt, the criminal, the incompetent and purged and restored (reformed and implemented new policy to prevent the past usurpations, manipulations, etc.) this system from going by the boards again.

      A few weeks ago in the Middletown area an old guy showed up at the local police station and enquired about getting a serial # for a gun he and his grandson were building. Instead of giving advice the Chief applied for a search warrant and raided the property with SWAT — and found the ‘Ghost Gun’, which the local media breathlessly reported. At one time most everybody had a workshop on their property where you’d see them repairing and tinkering with things. Or you’d see them on their small farms tending to their livestock and truck gardens. Now all the farms are gone, turned into strip malls and suburban housing tracts. And having a small machine shop or forge at your place makes you a suspect. You can drive around suburban neighborhoods even on a beautiful day like today and not see one human being. Where is everybody?

        As far as the “ghost” gun and so on, I can’t believe I have never heard a single comment on MSM about the truth about guns; that being, for example, when I was growing up, we had a gun ROOM.

Good-naturred drunks and pot-heads are very good neighbors compared to autists, tweakers, Karens and other officious types, some retards, and people who are off their meds. In the case of people who are on prescription opiates, these are not unpleasant; you just can’t have a conversation with them.

      Many years ago, an old friend told me she was leaving her husband and asked if she and her two kids could stay with me. About a month later, her husband also moved in, and the whole crew stayed for another month.

      My friend was not an easy person to live with, but she pulled her weight around the house. She took over all the cooking (fearing, I think, that she would starve on the type of fare my family normally ate), and could manage all five of the kids with ease, if I wasn’t there, and even get them to doing chores of various kinds.

      The husband was another story. I gave considerable thought to what tasks I could assign him, so that he could make some contribution to the household. Finally I decided that he could probably cut firewood. He did cut most of it to the right length, but unaccountably decided to cut quite a bit of it so that it wouldn’t fit in the wood stove.

      I quickly found work for the wife, but the husband was essentially unemployable. He also talked non-stop. He could talk without ever pausing to take a breath. Since I normally had other things to do besides listen to someone talk, I would look for an opening to excuse myself–to start dinner, do dishes, pick up kids from school, etc. No such pause ever occurred. I trained myself to overcome my innate good manners and just get up and walk out of the room without a word of explanation. (The expression on his face the first time I did this was priceless.)

      Other people’s kids also have habits that are hard to put up with. My friend’s two kids threw their towels on the floor after showering, instead of hanging them up. I introduced a system of assigned personal towels. Everyone in the household was allotted two towels to last them until the next washday. If they threw theirs on the floor, they were going to have to dry themselves with a stinky towel for the rest of the week.

      The whole family also walked like elephants. You’d be surprised how much that can irritate you, especially when Mom is a very big girl.

      I forgot what my point was, other than to say that I sympathize. And to tell you the truth, I think that Peter is not all that atypical of the humans at large in the world. (I am pretty sure of this, in fact.)

      A little over two years ago, my daughter and her husband bought the house next door to theirs, as it was offered to them for quite a bargain price, and they were on reasonably friendly terms with these neighbors. They had never seen the inside–and did not until closing. When they finally did see the interior, they found it unbelievable that anyone could live like that. And this was a couple who both had always held decent jobs and a daughter who had recently departed for college.

      There are many, many people out there whose mere survival to adulthood is amazing. I suppose many of them manage because they have a spouse to look after them, who won’t let them pee in the kitchen sink.

        There are a LOT of people like Peter around, – Anthea

        ============

        I hate contemplating the thought that this^ is true but I suspect you are right. I think we are all flawed in some way and that when we know we will be dealing with other people we don a facade of normality. Peter owns one of these facades and he puts it on when he goes to a wake. Wow, I think to myself, if that person Peter is talking to only knew the REAL Peter that lies beneath the veneer.

        As to people who talk and NEVER shut up………. yeah, they are a curse on humanity. I have known a few. My wife has a cousin in Denver whose husband never stops talking. It’s amazing. It’s a phenomenon to behold.

        I was the superior in charge of a woman named Bobbie L. Once she got your attention you were doomed. I had a buddy who realized how Bobbie was driving me insane and we devised a plan to nip it in the bud. He would call me on the phone, I’d answer, jump up and dash out of the office, allegedly to an important meeting.

    The mental image of Drag Queen Shows sponsored by the US Military at European bases made my mind wander to the gay pride flags flown by US embassies thence to the BLM flag flown by the same embassies and the thought struck:

    How about a “Fuck The EU” flag?

    The next thought was whether any European leaders would notice.

    Speaking of shows, what are the chances that Americans will recognize this ‘show” for what it is:

    A show trial.

    “a judicial trial held in public with the intention of influencing or satisfying public opinion, rather than of ensuring justice.”

    Will that term, and that idea, penetrate the American skull?

    In a few months, the living conditions in the US will be in far worse shape. Perhaps history will repeat itself and a political candidate will appear, winning the hearts and minds of the majority with the following campaign promises:

    This man would pledge to create prosperity, eliminate civil disorder by crushing strikes and street demonstrations instigated by radical groups, arrest and prosecute treasonous politicians, reinstate the death penalty, round up millions of criminals and other undesirables and put them in concentration camps to await execution and use military aggression to restore the US to its previous status as a world power.

    When I woke up this morning, I lay in bed feeling very angry. I was angry about stuff going on in my condo complex that I didn’t like, I was angry about what’s going in the world, I was angry at not being able to exercise as I am recuperating, and burn off energy, I wanted to sue my condo complex and so on.

    Then I thought if me, the supposedly reasonable one, can feel this angry, then how worked up are millions of others I don’t even know? I understood then why all this violence is occurring. The world is very frustrated, with no real outlet. It is a pressure cooker that can’t be turned off. Pretty soon there’ll be a massive pressure-relief explosion; then the resulting mess will be cleaned up and frustrations released.

    BTW, I feel like my normal self now, but I wonder if all I’m doing is burying the anger, and that someday I will become the Yellowstone caldera.

      Bean, sorry, but I don’t see any anger. What I see is people living life as usual, totally oblivious to the steamroller heading their way. Continuity bias is real. The waking up will be brutal.

      • beantownbill. June 6, 2022 at 4:05 pm #

        The anger is there, but it’s probably buried inside people and is not obvious to the bystander. Wait until they miss a few meals; you’ll see anger (really, fear) like you wouldn’t believe. I hope it never comes to that.

    • elysianfield June 6, 2022 at 3:17 pm #

    Who ever would have thought that the times we spent paying a mere $3.00 for a gallon of gas a few months ago would be deemed the good ol’ days? I look back on those days fondly, for tomorrow it will be even worse.

    Much like the idiots that believed in paying more for fuel because it was the right thing to do for the Ukraine, I argue that it is our privilege and duty to keep paying more and higher costs for everything in order to give support to over throwing the evil Democrats and the Biden regime come November.

        • Beryl of Oyl June 6, 2022 at 2:48 pm #

          Apparently, those who diligently kept on paying during the ‘pause’ didn’t get a break on the interest accruing. Some thought it was an opportunity to get ahead.

          • Paula D June 6, 2022 at 3:17 pm #

            Exactly. I know more than one who have already paid off more than they borrowed, but still owe more than they borrowed. They pay and pay, but the amount keeps rising.
            Don’t know how to explain it better, because it is too absurd to understand.

          • cowbell81 June 6, 2022 at 3:48 pm #

            They are slaves to the compounding interest. And once you get close to paying it back they will find new fees to tack on.

          • Blackbird June 7, 2022 at 12:10 am #

            The Rule of 72.

            Divide 72 by the interest rate on your loan. The result is the number of years for the interest paid to equal the principle of the loan.

            If your loan has an interest rate of 6%, then it takes 12 years (72 /6) for your interest paid to equal your original principle. Take 24 years to pay off that loan, and guess what? Yup, you paid twice as much in interest as you originally borrowed.

            It will be deducted from your social security, should it come to that.

        What I read is that Biden plans on wasting a lot of money by giving $5k of student loan forgiveness to everyone still making payments on student loans. If you’re behind and not making payments, well, you’re screwed. And if you are one of millions who are paying off a student loan bigger than a house, well, the Big Guy will pay to paint the shutters, but he ain’t about to take that empty house off your back.

        A small rebate to those who pay regularly. Nothing to undo the damage caused to many individuals, and to the economy as a whole, by the student loan racket.

        Biden was instrumental in making student loan debt exempt from bankruptcy. He will not undo one of his great accomplishments.

    “The unravelling of the USA gets its summer steroid booster shot this Thursday when the political twerk-fest known as the January 6th Select Committee commences prime-time televising of its inquiry into the so-called “insurrection”…”

    Perhaps They should begin the proceedings by stipulating that there is nothing ‘Select’ about this ‘Committee’ and that there was no such thing on that day as ‘insurrection’. But no, They won’t do that because that destroys the house-of-cards narrative They have so tirelessly worked to promote to bully the American people into utter shame for daring to question the fiasco and stench that surrounds the very stinky 2020 election.

    “The objectives of this extravaganza are… to paint former president Donald Trump as an instigator of the uproar and an enemy-of-the-people…”

    I have a better idea. Since the purpose of this Committee is solely to pummel the memory of a former US President, They need to simplify these ‘proceedings’…

    Since Mr. Trump is the object for which all the ills of the Universe is being assessed blame for…

    Just create a GREAT BIG PINATA of Himself and place it in the middle of the ’Committee’ chambers. Let the ‘Esteemed Members’ of ‘The Committee’ take turns wielding a HUGE stick and wailing-away taking swings at the Big Arrogant Orange Face that hangs ominously over ‘These Sacred Spaces’ of ‘This Esteemed Committee’.

    This performance will be exceedingly more fun to watch than the predictable dead and boring speeches leading to the well-pre-determined outcome that ‘This Horrible Man Is… Horrible!’.

    And maybe we can save some money on the light bill for the Chambers and quickly send that money to all Those Brave Freedom Fighters Protecting Our Nation’s Freedom From Those Nasty Viet Cong in Eastern Ukraine. Or the Huns, or whatever Our Heroes are fighting over there.

    This ‘Selected Committee’ is yet another Kangaroo Court fully funded by We-The-People-Who-Are-Going-Broke-Paying-For-Gas-And-Food-And Lodging-And-Medical-Care-And…

    And since ‘The Esteemed Members Of This Select Committee’ are mimicking the behavior of Kangaroos… let’s be sure there are plenty of Congressional Staff on hand to feed those Members a good selection of tasty grasses and vegetation on Their way out of Those Esteemed Chambers after beating the crap out of that defenseless Orange Pinata.

    “Take it all in and ask yourself: who exactly seeks to subvert this republic of ours?”

    Our Nation is fully lost in the Fog of Endless War while drowning itself in a Sea of Wokeism-Gone-Wild. In a Culture that is Cancel-Culturing itself to death and erasure.

    Some might say… get your popcorn ready. But popcorn is getting scarce and expensive.

    Maybe they’ll have some of that grass and vegetation left over that we could forage? YUM YUM…

    I know you like Trump, and I know your heart’s in the right place. But how can you extol someone who turns a blind eye to the sufferings of people who supported him? The 1/6 “resurrectionists” have been illegally imprisoned and tortured. Trump hasn’t done anything to help them, as far as I know. Their treatment should be a national scandal. IMO, any good that Trump did has been negated many times over by his apparent lack of concern about them. Just sayin’.

          Exactly. If Trump gave a damn about his supporters, he would have started saying something – hell, doing something, he was still President – on January 6. And he would have kept saying/doing it until those improperly imprisoned for the events of that day are released – and those improperly not imprisoned are arrested. Instead he walked away as if unaware of the events he had put in motion. Sure can’t wait for Trump to save us again.

          • cbeard June 8, 2022 at 7:44 am #

            Though Trump and his presidency was a much needed wake up call to some Americans, he is a classic example of a malignant narcissist. People with such a mental defect cannot function as as most people do. Everything they think, say or do is all about themselves and themselves only. Nothing, not family, friends, country, god absolutely nothing else matters to them and they do not have a clue and cannot be convinced that they have a problem. They are perfect creations who can do no wrong.

      • Hereward the Woke June 6, 2022 at 2:46 pm #

      I don’t actually like Trump. He’s a flawed character, and his ego is probably his biggest fault. He failed to do some things that he probably could have done – I say “probably” because every single thing he attempted to do was attacked in every way possible. If I want to give him the benefit of the doubt, I could say that he just made a realistic assessment of what actions he might get away with (at least, for a time) and what just wouldn’t fly. If I want to be cynical, I’d just say that he lacked sufficient courage and fortitude to do what he should have done. Still – I’m perfectly willing to give him credit for what he did do (which was actually quite a lot) and to acknowledge that he was beset like no other president in the history of this country. I don’t think that’s extolling him.

    • Night Owl June 7, 2022 at 2:10 pm #

      I actually kind of agree with Bill.

      Trump still thinks he can take control by staying within the superficial lines of the system. He avoids being too controversial

      He’s going to have to put more on the line at some point. The psychopaths tearing down the country and pushing the Great Reset will never give up, because they are too far along to stop.

    Of course they did! It’s PRIDE month! Maybe by 2023, it’ll be PRIDE YEAR! I can see it now: The gays who won’t get on board with the child grooming will be expunged from their own movement, as the trans agenda freaks move in and take it over 100% (they’re already about 70% of the way there).

Or does she snap to attention?

      ” It’s PRIDE month!”

      I notice that a lot of events in the local events calander that in the past would have just been, say, “barn dance”: “sing-along”; whatever, are now designated as “Pride” events—just because, I assume, they take place in June.

      June has been taken over! By fiat!

      Is it going to be “Pride high school graduation”?
      Probably. We’ll soon find out. I have two great-nephews graduating from the high school. I await with baited (or is that bated) breath finding out whether they can get through the ceremony without mentioning “pride” or any other gender crap.

      • Islander June 6, 2022 at 1:45 pm #

        Funny you mentioned that Islander.

        We are going to a HS Graduation ceremony this afternoon at a small rural district west of here; I have already been warned by a nephew to prepare myself for a “Pride Themed Event.” I’m not sure what to expect. It might be like a few years ago when another niece graduated from Trinity College in Hartford. At that graduation, the theme was ‘Africa’. There was African Decor in the hall, and everyone involved — graduates, staff, profs — wore a fake lepoardskin around their necks. The African imagery didn’t seem to be connected to the goings on — Trinity started out as a school for Methodist ministers in the mid 19th century. No explanation was given; they probably figured none was needed.

    I remember Obama telling us that the American worker must become more ”competitive” with the rest of the world.
    He framed it as enticing young people to go to college, even though it was already obvious back then that the “higher education” system was a scam between the banks and the colleges to ensnare teenagers into lifelong debt servitude. Tut I took it as an announcement that US wages and living standards would be driven down to match the 3rd world and I was proven more accurate.
    And so it continues now.

The young college grads these days seem have it drilled into them from day one.

        Mary, you may remember I said I had an old school class mate who’d had covid in 2020 (so had immunity) and went on to have two unnecessary jabs (now three). A couple of months after the second one she had a heart attack. She survived because the helimed team were already there when she arrested and they put her into a coma. She’s the one who told me my mental health wasn’t what it should be because of the ‘conspiracy theories’ I was into. I saw on Facebook (I look occasionally to see if they’re OK) that her husband’s brother recently ‘died suddenly’ at 74. Her comment was ’74 is nothing these days – guys, look after yourselves’.

        A few years previously they’d invited me to join a WhatsApp group – otherwise I hadn’t seen them, apart from one who’d been my best friend at school, for fifty years. I tried to warn them, when the boosters started, then again when the jabbing of kids started, because I knew at least one had grandchildren. Nobody wanted to know, except one who said to send her some information. I sent her heaps of it, and I presume she ignored it all, after asking for it, because nothing further was said until my second warning over the kids.

        The one who’d had the heart attack (I hadn’t told her why she’d had it) claimed she used to work as a research consultant and came back with confirmation that all was well from some articles by Factcheck.com. Although one has been in contact with me since, I withdrew from the WhatsApp group, as I just found it frustrating.

        Three of the other four are really fit and sporty, even at 70 – into hillwalking, cycling, and in one case horseriding.

        I just got a message this morning to say that the (really fit) one who was my bestie at school – although I haven’t seen her since my kids were small – has just died of a heart attack, a couple of days before her 70th birthday. She never regained consciousness. Her mother is still alive in her 90s, which I think she could otherwise have expected for herself. She was a science teacher. The last thing she said to me before I withdrew from the group was ‘sorry, [Alba]. l”m all for vaccination’.

        So that’s two heart attacks before age 70 out of a group of six people, plus a brother in law, plus my husband (almost). I am at a loss to know what to say to people like that who won’t listen. It’s like having to deal with half a dozen Redneck Liberals.

        • Jarek June 7, 2022 at 12:31 pm #

            You’ve lost me.

          • GreenAlba June 7, 2022 at 1:14 pm #

            Actually, no, it seems there were two brothers in law who ‘died suddenly’ – one at 74 and another at 67. And their families are still asleep.

          • Jarek June 7, 2022 at 4:57 pm #

            Not all people who take the vaccine have problems. Just like not all Blacks or Muslims are criminals. And not all Gays are pervs, pedophlles, or sex addicts.

            This is your pov of view, remember? And since it’s not all, there is no problem, right?

            That’s seems to be what you’ve been saying to me – if not overtly, then by implication – for years now. You often don’t go into it, you just say “Not all”. And since you don’t say any more, the implication is that there is therefore no problem outside of my imagination or “dark filter” (or whatever it was you said the other day).

            But of course there are problems with these groups, big ones. As there is with the vaccine.

          Oh GA that is just too much tragedy, I am so sorry about your friend!! Wow out of 6 people, that is incredible. I am really sorry for you but also I give you lots and lots of respect because you tried so hard. I haven’t.

          I do a lot of activism, but I know my family and woke friends will scorn and mock me if I try to get anything to them warning-wise (I did start to, but the mocking put an end to that). So, if they ruin their health or kill themselves with jabs it’s not my problem, although it will be incredibly tragic.

          Frustrating is not even the word – it’s so beyond that. ANd then when you are proved right, they STILL are angry at you, I’m guessing. “Oh it would have been worse if (she) had not gotten the jab!” Oh really? So now, covid19 is a heart attack? I thought that it was a bad cold.

          In any case, I admire those of you who really work on your families and friends. I gave up early. I do other stuff, but it’s not the same.

        That’s OK, then. When I am eventually refused food because I won’t take any more clot shots, it will be a business that refuses my digital ID, not the government. That’s all right then. It’s not like corporations have been working hand in glove with governments or anything sinister like that.

            As much attention as these posts deserve.

            Regardless of what I have to say, should I sweat over a ‘wall of text’ (as your new bestest buddy Narc troll would characterise it), it would get scant attention.

            Think of me as the same as your old friends who have dropped you like a bag of dog-poop since you went down the rabbit hole and now find that you think & speak of little else.

            Evidence?

            “When I am eventually refused food because I won’t take any more clot shots, it will be a business that refuses my digital ID, not the government.

            Where’s the evidence of this prospect? As I see it, your statement (above) IS evidence – of delusional thinking, having hung around too long with agents of disinformation who have relentlessly chipped away at your previously logical thinking. Too bad.

            So, RL, when your local supermarkets demand that you pay using a fingerprint or facial recognition, like the criminal you are just for existing, will you comply? That’s what Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Lidl and Morrison’s have announced here.

            Will you take a jab of a mystery substance if they say you have to in order to buy groceries? Or an implant?

            In WA, the powers that be are frustrated that the covid pass isn’t needed anymore, so they’re racking their brains for functions to attach to it to control people with. And you think that’s fine? I though WA was the relaxed bit of Australia, but when push comes to shove, it might as well be Victoria.

            A question and a point for you…

            Q: Where’d you get THAT particular piece of misinformation from? (That is, I suppose, some remark by someone somewhere sometime has since been spun into the above sentence of conspiratorial nature – look at all the pointers in it.)

            Point: Australia is probably the most regulated jurisdiction in history. Try opening a “.com.au” web address to find out just how bad it is. But aside from that, this is the WA State government you’re complaining about. Its COVID response was so much more draconian than anywhere else (with the possible exception of China) and it has only just opened up and appears to be very happy to have done so.

      • Paula D June 7, 2022 at 7:13 pm #

        RL perfectly illustrates Blackbird’s (above) point.
        They roll out repression on step at a time. At fist the more freedom-loving people object, but then they get used to it.
        And people like RL sneer “So what if I am spied upon by the government, I accept it completely when corporations do it so what’s the difference?”
        That is how freedom dies, one step at a time, applauded by the enthusiastically submissive among us.

I just clicked on a few links and found my way to Dr Roger Hodkinson (pathologist), if I recall correctly, plus another doctor/scientist or two, and Reiner Fuellmich, who distilled what he’d been told by a whole bunch of other scientists and doctors.

            @ Narc Troll – no, ’twas thee who mentioned it (“abuse”) first.

            AS to yers (of whom I’ve never heard before), clearly he’s an arsehole. Good to know that the system finds and punishes ACTUAL voter fraud, rather than the imaginary stuff.

            A summary of his crimes is:

            Federal prosecutors said Myers orchestrated schemes to fraudulently stuff ballot boxes for Democratic candidates in the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 Pennsylvania elections.

            Local State elections…not the 2020 Federal election. So what’s your point?

            And this from today’s news, all fresh and everything:

            “TROY, N.Y. (AP) — An upstate New York Republican is being forced out of her city council post after pleading guilty to three federal counts of voter fraud and amid unfounded assertions across the country — mostly by some in the GOP — of widespread elections tampering.

            The case involving Troy City Councilmember Kimberly McPherson, who represents a community northeast of Albany, the state capital, is one just few instances of documented voter fraud.

            Some Republicans have falsely charged that the 2000 presidential election was rigged in favor of Democrat Joe Biden.

            As part of a plea deal, McPherson admitted to fraudulently casting an absentee ballot in last year’s primary election and two such ballots in the general election. McPherson’s name appeared on both ballots. She admitted to illegally filing absentee ballots in the names of two other voters.

            You accept repression and then claim that we are “deluded” for opposing it.

            Oh, please…that’s a more threadbare strawman than the Narc Troll throws up.

            Firstly, it’s you who characterises it as ‘repression’ and then secondly, you virtue-signal yourself as ‘opposing’ it. Just how effectively have you been opposing ‘it’, this imagined ‘repression’? Your most recent victory in precis form will suffice.

            I take it that you do actually give a shit, GA, but I’ve been down the rabbit hole. I remember what it is like and I have zero desire to get sucked back into the crazy shit hole that it, in fact, is.

            RL – You still can’t get over the fact that I used to argue with Night Owl and Mary and have now found common cause, You shouldn’t take it so personally – in a world of people who think and learn, it’s not an unknown phenomenon, even outside of covid.

            Sometimes it goes the other way, and you get someone like Chomsky, who used to understand how corrupt organisations work and believe in freedom, now wants unvaxxed people subjected to medical apartheid, even though everyone not living under a rock knows that the vaxxes don’t stop you transmitting covid. And even though you’re twice as like to get it and die from it if you’re fully vaxxed than if you’re completely unvaxxed (the scientific paper I linked to will help you with that one).

            I have to say it’s funny hearing someone with their head buried in the sand tell other people they’re down a rabbit hole. I’m not sure why an ostrich hole is better.

    All I can say to this is that for the very first election of my adult life, I intend to vote straight-ticket Republican, although like a lot of voters, the only race in which my vote is likely to make a difference are the statewide US senator and governor races, on account of the whole country being well and truly gerrymandered to the nines at this point.

    Sure, the Republicans could accelerate the collapse with the Randroid “reverse Robin Hood” policies they seem to favor, but at least that will be a collapse rather less seasoned with a generous dose of mass formation psychosis and rather more predictable in nature. Still, I will be keeping in mind when I fill out my ballot at City Hall in late October that fragrant cliche “Be careful for what you wish, you may just get it.”

    Trump on his worst day, is a thousand percent better than the nincompoops that are running DC right now.

    A vote for the Dems is a vote against the continuation of 20th century America and for the installation of the WEF into mainstream America.

    Criticize him for some of his actions, believe all the BS the MSM has made up about him, he is still head and shoulders above anyone in DC. Right now, with maybe a few exceptions, he is the only one dedicated to keeping the “c” in America.

    • SoftStarLight June 7, 2022 at 2:54 am #

      Hmmm I see ? ? Couldn’t it be concluded that a vote for the Dems is a continuation of 20th century America actually. Was it not because of their total consolidation of essentially all institutional power in the 20th century and on why we find ourselves here now?

      • JohnAZ June 7, 2022 at 10:43 am #

          Well the Clinton’s as an example appear to have developed a bureaucratic empire with tentacles throughout apparently every level of government and media and that was happening in the 90s so I’m not sure I can completely come into congruence with your assertion but I do agree in the sense that Bush and particularly Obama sort of completely flipped the switch so that there is no longer even the appearance of a balanced system.

          • SoftStarLight June 7, 2022 at 4:18 pm #

            Clintons I meant. Actually I just have to say if I may that really Bill should have been utilized as the face of all of this. He was actually likable and relatable from what I recall. So many people were enamored with Obama and I just never could come into an understanding of that. I guess the counter messaging to his messaging reached me and made a big difference as I was forming opinions about him. Ultimately when I see his face I think of the anti-Christ look alike from the documentary or that movie from back at the time where everyone was like omg look it’s Obama and he is the devil. I don’t know if you remember that but I just think uggh AC is in the house when Obama’s face would pop up.

            If you say so. Actually I can’t in good faith say that I’m not given over to a changeable tempermentality. But I also must say that your critique is very interesting given that I cannot provide unquestionable data to support my conjectures.

            Don’t feel bad SSL.

            I lectured Rednut on this technique back during the Ukraine phone call hearings, when he could not distinguish between hearsay and evidence in the legal sense.

            The part he still doesn’t understand is that the use of this technique in hard news reporting makes a mockery of that news reporting, hence my designation of the corporate news collective as the McMedia, whereas its use in informal discussion or even an op-ed, is something entirely different.

            That is how things go when one is of low intelligence.

          • SoftStarLight June 8, 2022 at 1:40 pm #

            Exactly thanks for that good point! Yeah, I mean if I had undeniable evidence I wouldn’t say things like apparently and sorta and so forth. But obviously the nuance was just too much to deal with or something lol. It’s fine. RL appears to be subjugated by a never ending rage spiral. In some situations medicine cannot be avoided 😉

            Your sense of superiority is palpable, but squishy, Narc Troll. Most of your so-called ‘evidence’ comes from a couple of Twitter feeds (authored by nutjobs or disinfo agents) absolutely brimming with not only hearsay but op-ed style interpretation of said hearsay.

            So go fuck yourself and your “lecturing”. (You’d be a shitty teacher anyway.)

          • Night Owl June 9, 2022 at 7:39 am #

            Well my lecturing must have worked, as you now understand how to read for bias framing. Your faceplants during the Ukraine phone call threads were legendary.

            BTW, when I post to Twitter, those fine writers usually link the work of an expert or some piece of hard evidence.

            Sometimes critical thinking is required to place pieces of evidence into context.

            Like when the ex-VP of Pfizer explains what the MRNA shots do to your body, or the criminal networks he can verifiably prove are lying to you not only exist, but that have actively coordinated together to create what we are living through.

We don’t want someone who the lesser evil or less awful than the dems; we want someone who is going to do the damn job and clear out the swamp once and for all. Trump has shown zero signs that he will do anything different next time. He’s endorsing that sh1tbag, McCarthy, FFS.

    Thank you Mr. K. I think it’s good advice to take in the sham committee hearings (brought to you by good morning america lol) with levity. People like Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney clearly have a need to be perceived as serious and consequential, if not historical. What a better defeat could one imagine then for them than to be summarily mocked, ridiculed and panned. It’s also such an odd strategy. Jan 6 is so far away from the current thing and so not relevant in the now. I personally think it would have been way more efficient for them if they would have done all this right after “Joe Biden” was installed right out the gate basically. But hey’ i’m not their consultant so whatevs lol. The counter points are easy. While you are scrounging to pay for gas and groceries look at these rich politicians playing games with water under the bridge. Just goes to show how completely divorced they are from the “country” around them.

  65. tucsonspur June 7, 2022 at 3:30 am #

    You think Trump alone can stop the WEF from coming into America? Not a chance, they’re already here. What will he do? Answer, maybe impose more tariffs, and consequently more counter tariffs, and also cut taxes for the rich, again. He is the best on the border, but even there he couldn’t rally enough support for a really strong defense of it. And again, the caravans march towards us, hoping to invade.

    Trump is not the man who can save you, because no one can save you except yourself. The die is cast. You yourself have said that the Dems and the Deep State are too entrenched for anyone to effectuate a meaningful change of course back to “c” America.

    Look at Sussmann and Navarro, and the two tiers of justice. Here’s Ben Weingarten from thefederalist.com:

    ‘It sends an unmistakable message: We can get you anytime, anywhere, on any grounds we choose. You can’t touch even a single one of ours.’

    Who knows what will happen in two plus years, but if Trump does run in 2024, he has a good chance of losing. For November 2022, the Dems have been gaining ground in spite of all the current problems.

    No, I don’t want to vote for Trump again, I prefer someone with at least a bit of intellect, someone without ‘bone spurs’, and someone other than a showman who rode the populist wave into the WH and became an apprentice there.

    Don’t readily dismiss the other half of the electorate.

        rube – if I understand you correctly, what you’re saying is that when Trump was in office everything was just tickety-boo – almost like the Eisenhower years, right? Apple pie & gingham tablecloths etc.

        Since then the whole place has gone to the dogs – just like that?

      I just picture 2022 and 24 with the Deep State, not just the Dems, maintaining power and it gives me much fear for our future.

      If anyone can come up with a replacement for Trump, someone who can slam the domestic enemy as effectively as Trump, someone who can be enough of a political pariah to set the Dems, especially the Bernie Boys and Girls back on their heels, come on. Until I am convinced that person exists, I will stick with Trump.

      How effective is he politically.

      He has turned Washington DC and the Deep State into a TDS machine exclusively. Anyone who can turn Biden’s, Pelosi’s and Schumer’s agenda from destroying our democracy into get Trump is doing his job trying to drain the swamp.

      • tucsonspur June 7, 2022 at 5:41 pm #

        Not so, John. I don’t fall for the MSM propaganda at all. I’ve already said before that if I have to vote Trump again I will. If there isn’t a better candidate out there than it’s too bad for us.

        You know as well as I that Trump can’t dislodge the Deep State, although he is a sharp, stinging thorn in their side.

        All I was saying is that Trump alone cannot save this nation, and it’s beyond foolish to think so.

    @ Backrow Heckler:

    King James has spoken:

    LeBron James on Monday shared a letter urging Joe Biden to get Brittney Griner home from Russia.
    The WNBA star Griner has been in Russian custody since an arrest on drug charges in February.
    The letter asked the US to “immediately address this human rights issue” and get her home.
    LeBron James has demanded that President Joe Biden bring Brittney Griner home from Russia, where the WNBA star has been detained for more than 100 days.

    “We need to come together and help do whatever we possibly can to bring BG home quickly and safely!! Our voice as athletes is stronger together,” he tweeted Sunday night to his 51.4 million

    Gas is inching up to $5 per gallon, but still people driving around like sonsabitches. Its manic, a last desperate go-round as indicated by the plethora of head on collisions, reckless driving, pedestrians being run down, and road rage incidents. Last night we drove about 40 miles west to attend a HS graduation. It was well done, not much political BS, and the graduates appeared eager and hopeful; my nephew commented “These kids are in for a rude awakening.” Yes, but I wish them the best anyway. Stopped at an Applebees at the edge of town on the way home (I always liked Applebees) Burger and fries for me, chicken salad for my wife, a beer and a soft drink: $50 with a tip. I’m sure they’re trying to keep prices down but many more of these restaurant will be struggling to survive in the near future.

    • Disaffected June 7, 2022 at 9:53 am #

      And gas will likely be the least of it. Saker blog continues to paint the deep shit the Euros in particular and the west in general are in with regard to diesel fuel, which is arguably even more vital to a functioning economy. The main question remains: is this an intentional demolition of the western economies by Davos Man as part of their Great Reset plan? That would seem to be the only explanation that makes sense, unless they really are that stupid.

            I have yet to find a bad container of diesel…apparently it can get a mold or fungal infection…but so can/could the wife.

            The reason it lasts longer is it is not very volatile, and is closer, much closer to crude than is gasoline, I would expect. No way to convert a gas motor to diesel without building a diesel vapor system. It can be done, but why then use diesel when used motor oil is everywhere available?

    I keep saying that everyone is overthinking all of this. It’s actually quite simple, elementary really: The industrial revolution aka fossil fuel surplus, was financed by fractional reserve lending.

    That is, debt based money. The problem is that by its very definition, you cannot repay capital + interest if there isn’t sufficient growth in the money supply.

    However, if you simply just print more money without growth in real, underlying production (ie again, read as surplus), you end up creating (ruinous) inflation that eventually destroys the banking system.

    Now of course the Rothschilds, et al have always known about this essential, fixed problem, the avoidance of which – like death and taxes – is impossible. So, what have they done? Well, kicked the can down the road like everyone else for the last 200 years.

    But now crunch time is coming. Everyone – and I mean *everyone* with even a mild clue – knows this is it, the jig is finally up for reals.

    So, if you’ve been the absolute master of the universe for two centuries, observing from up high with wry amusement the passions and emotional drama of billions of simple, easily satisfied human ants, how do you react when you *yourself* are slated for termination?

    Well, you have one single advantage – and no, it’s not land holdings, gold, or other traditional forms of wealth. Because in chaos, that shit is worthless.

    No, what you have is the classic first mover advantage. If you can control the collapse through the remaining vestiges of government authority, you might, just might be able to retain power over a rump, medieval system of control.

    Travel, housing, food, consumption, health, safety – control the people through these core essential levers, combined with all information flow (repackaged religion techniques) and you can operate the entire machine with limited staff.

    If youre a motu, that’s it – it’s all you got. So, dear reader, look around, lose the personal angle, and observe the intentional demolition taking place. All done with a purpose, all wonderfully logical and rational if viewed from the masters’ pov.

      I see confused people trying to reconcile their respective faiths with apparently uncontrollable, random events.

      Their institutional indoctrination, reinforced with stringent cultural influence, prevents them from not only seeing the truth, but actually even dare question the official narrative.

      So, I try to help out now and then, but do I really care if anyone is actually “saved”? The cool thing thing is, “you do you” still applies. Listen, act if you choose, it doesn’t really matter to me.

      However, those with a public voice risk becoming an embarrassment, the type of kindly, enfeebled elder who is gently patted on the head while the caregiver emits a soothing “there there”. These are yesterday’s men, whom history has passed by.

        Retaining power over a ‘rump, medieval system’ would be what they want if it came to that. In a catastrophic collapse however, all bets could be off, with who knows who grabbing power.

        Just like in banking, risk assessments are often enough inaccurate, and outcomes of major societal collapse would be difficult to pinpoint in fine detail. But those with a lot of money and power to begin with would most likely come out on top, wouldn’t they?

        I don’t think that ‘intentional demolition’ is the goal. The global elites are intentionally planning to do what they think is best for themselves and the world, with the masses absorbing the collateral damage and often unintended consequences.

    ===============================

    i said “come on” in response,

    as in ‘do you expect the media to report anything positive about Trump’

    • beantownbill. June 7, 2022 at 1:35 pm #

      OK. Thanks for the clarification.

    • Redneck Liberal June 8, 2022 at 6:39 pm #

      “come on” reads more accurately as “as if he’d do anything for them”.

      To claim there’s no information about his steadfast support & care for those poor benighted dupes in Federal prison in the MSM because the MSM wouldn’t report it is just ridiculous on its face.

      What about all your alt-right-CTNJ sources? Why haven’t they been reporting on his heroic deeds of intrepid intervention? Because there’s nothing to report, is why.

    US sees heightened extremist threat heading into midterms

    • cowbell81 June 7, 2022 at 3:38 pm #

      They’ll probably try to force us all to wear masks again come October, and reincarnate the digital vaxpass reporting requirements.

      Geez, what a bunch of idiots. This is out country and if we want to fight for our beliefs we have every right to do so.

      I don’t recall DHS issuing any such press release before all the latest violence and looting after the death of St. George Floyd.

      Someone needs to send Putin the exact GPS coordinates of D.C. and its hallowed institutions, and tell him to get on with the business of saving us from ourselves.

      • Disaffected June 7, 2022 at 3:45 pm #

        I have no doubt Russian high command has the coordinates dialed in and ready to execute on a moment’s notice. I really do think that’s the only way out of our current mess.

      • SoftStarLight June 7, 2022 at 4:00 pm #

        Yes, well did you hear that the CDC is now recommending the donning of masks for traveling due to monkeypox? So far I don’t think there are any new mandates but of course the recommendation could be part of the initial rollout you refer to. I have been feeling for some time that they are going to prevent the midterms from occurring some how some way. Otherwise if the elections are held and are even slightly fair then there will be a big political shift and they cannot afford for such a thing to occur.

    Actor Matthew McConaughey thought he could play president earlier today when he was given the floor and gave a “gripping” and “emotional” speech behind the White House podium.

    Boy, he sure is a good actor, turning on those water works at the drop of a dime. Someone should nominate him for a Daytime Emmy for that performance.

    I see the Jan 6 hearings will replace prime time TV on MSM. Should be a dandy, and says a lot about the quality of both.

    In the meantime, since anything goes and nothing matters now, no one will care.

    • Disaffected June 7, 2022 at 4:38 pm #

      Other than sporting events, as if anyone at all watches prime time network TV anymore. They really are going a little overboard with these Jan 6th hearings, though. I don’t know anyone on either side of the issue that pays attention to that shit anymore.

      • cowbell81 June 7, 2022 at 5:07 pm #

        Agreed, there isn’t anything worthwhile in Primetime anymore. I often see a commercial for a show that looks mildly interesting, but then they say it is only available on Hulu, Paramount Plus, or some such other streaming platform. I wonder why they waste their time and money, putting together what looks like a quality show with well known actors and interesting narrative, only to have it unavailable to a large segment of the populace.

        Streaming anything is a no go for me since I refuse to partake in a payment subscription service to get my dose of entertainment. All you have to do is look at the state of America and the lunacy that is ongoing, and that is entertainment enough, and all for free!

        And yet we wonder why we don’t have a common American culture anymore. Gone are the days of sitting down at 8 PM every night to watch the typical variety show. Instead we have reality shows like Big Brother, which clearly cater to the lowest IQ and lowest common denominator.

    Huh, something is not adding up here.

    The new Ford F150 EV was promoted as being an ‘affordable’ electric truck, retailing for about $40,000. But a few are turning up on dealers lots now with a sticker price of $141,000. Biden was up in Detroit last year promoting these things, billing them as Everyman’s vehicle, like the Ford Model T a century ago. Ford claims to have hundreds of thousands of reservations for this F150, so many that they can’t keep up with demand. However, a column in the WSJ a few weeks ago made the claim that 70% of Americans have less than $400 in the bank, and live week to week on $500 per week. Ford competitor Rivian in Indianapolis originally priced their EV truck at $67,500, but has since raised the cost to $83,500. On the Motley Fool site the claim was made that even at $83,500 every unit sold would result in a $15,000 loss, that the truck needs to be sold for at least $110 thousand for the company to remain solvent. In addition there is a required $15,500 subscription payable over 5 years.

    So what gives? Is the EV Revolution just another just another scam based upon wishful thinking, lies and false hope? Some of these companies (Ford, GM) have promised to end all ICE production by 2030

      Numbers!

      Estimates say there are 330 million active cars and light trucks in the country, plus how many overseas. Add on the vehicles in the trucking industry.

      Now take the proverbial elites, the 1%.

      To replace the fleet of 330 million I say five years will require 3.3 million cars or over 600000 per year.

      That is if only the 1% can afford the machines, right now more than that can afford a Tesla or a PU truck EV.

      The numbers game, if 5% can make the transition that is 3 million per year.

      Some questions for the EV proponents.

      Can the car manufacturers make 3 million a year?

      Can the grid handle 3 million more cars charging per year?

      What effect on price and delivery will the well understood resource limitations have on the EV production bottlenecks?

      How much more fossil fuels will we need to produce the electricity, produce the windmills and solar panels, produce the plastics for the EV cars, produce the infrastructure needed to make 3 million more EVs per year, and add this onto the FF required to run the rest of the auto fleet, the other 300 million.

      Kerry, the hair looking for a brain, complained this week that the FF industry is expanding now and it will be catastrophic for AGW. Why can’t these people realize that EVs are not the answer and do something else, if there is something else.

      Twenty more years and cheap oil is history. Then reactionary solutions will be automatic, no choice. EVs are contrary to what is needed.

      I just checked the local Ford dealer. He has one F-150 lightning. Price 84 G’s and change. From the specs the range is 230 miles but there is a caveat as follows.

      Fine print says: “EPA-estimate metric: these are contingent on ideal conditions within a lab. Real-world situations such as carrying passengers or cargo, using climate control, driving style, and ambient temperatures can affect actual metrics. ”

      Tells me the EPA estimate numbers are a joke basically based on ideal conditions in a lab. So 230 miles huh. , Basic New England winter storm. 10 degrees F. Run heat/defrost full blast, -35 miles, add a couple passengers and some weight in the bed, -30 miles, Wipers full bore,all lights, maybe some heated seats for comfort, -25 miles, Pushing through snow resistance in road.Who knows. Range ???? I wouldn’t leave the neighborhood. Forget about a ski or sledding trip with a trailer.

      • beantownbill. June 8, 2022 at 5:32 pm #

        I spend a minimum of $84,000, plus extras, plus sales tax, plus fees less my trade-in. Say about $95,000 – $30,000, or about $65,000. For this I can drive to get groceries, that’s it. Forget about seeing my grandkids – unless I drive there around 11 AM and return about 2 PM, when the traffic is at a minimum. Not light, just at the minimum. Forget about seeing them in July and August because I’ll have to put on the AC. Forget about driving to Foxwoods, it’s 90 miles each way, so I’d probably have to charge up before I leave CT.

        Now compare that to my current car, a hybrid RAV 4. I owe about 6-7K on my car loan, which I’ll be paying off shortly. I’m now getting about 48-49 mpg, and summers and winters I get about 38-42 mpg. I still have free service for about 1.5 years more.

    What could it be? For some reason, I do recall a few companies linked to one another producing a genetically engineered product that their own internal data showed was highly dangerous, and the most famous of those companies attempting to hide documentation on this matter for 75 years, before a court ordered them to begin releasing the information to the public.

    I also recall that said company had paid the largest fine for healthcare fraud in history. And, I kid you not, they tried to force their genetically engineered frankenproduct on the public by refusing them work, travel, or participation in society.

    Could there be a connection?

    So many questions.

    • GreenAlba June 8, 2022 at 12:27 pm #

      I’m so tempted to copy-paste your post verbatim (I’d maybe take out the ‘franken’!), with the link to the Daily Mail article, into another email to my MP (who is already sick of me).

      And then add the link to Christine Anderson MEP and point out what a politician with integrity looks like.

      But he (my MP) is only one out of 650, of whom I’d guess 550 are complicit, with varying degrees of knowledge regarding the full dystopian agenda.

      Brian Gerrish continues to think a lot of them are just plain stupid – it’s difficult to tell. But I know that 18 scientists and others. including Mike Yeadon, Tess Lawrie, John O’Looney, Anna de Buisseret, had an audience at Westminster last year with Sir Graham Brady, where they gave hours of evidence, to which he responded that he would do what he could (which turned out to be nothing at all).

      John O’Looney said Sir Graham didn’t even look surprised at the evidence. He just listened to it and did nothing. So John thinks they’re all complicit, since they all talk to one another in the Uniparty (I actually used that term to my MP, who’s meant to be the Opposition – I’m past the stage of decorum with these quislings).

      I was very decorous in my email to Sir Christopher Chope, though, who spoke out on behalf of the vaxx injured and was decried as a purveyor of discredited conspiracy theories for his pains.

            You called me stupid the other day. And have insulted me many times. I have no reason to be particularly polite to you.

            But I’m trying to debate in the main, using the Vax to talk about other things, and you are refusing the challenge, unable or unwilling, or unwilling because unable or because you simply don’t even understand what a debate is, or perhaps my model – which I explain above.

            Back to the non-debate: Your little study has six people – that’s not viable. Too small. All elderly. Bad things happen to the elderly all the time. You’d be better of focusing on the young who have been jabbed, but of course you wouldn’t know them, and it wouldn’t have the same emotional appeal to you. As a woman, the feelz are very, very important needless to say.

            When we really get into statistics, we begin to predict what may happen on the basis of what has happened. It starts to become meta-physical or beyond the physical. It hasn’t happened yet! And mathematics does get into models far beyond the physical as we know it. But such models may yet explain things we haven’t seen – yet.

          • GreenAlba June 8, 2022 at 2:59 pm #

            You don’t seem to understand the difference between information that is an illustration of a reality and data that is wider evidence of it. But no matter. What matters to you is to insult women, which is a bit of a yawn to most people.

            The article referred to in Night Owl’s post, which I said I am considering sending to my MP, is about young people. Hence more important to convey to him than my anecdotal illustration.

            But healthy, extremely fit, non-smoking 69-year-old women very very rarely have heart attacks. So the illustration (which does not claim to be data) still stands.

            What is also important is that none of these incidents, including my husband’s collapse and the death of our postman’s wife from a blood clot on the brain, are recorded on the UK’s vaccines adverse events recording system (Yellow Card). That too is an illustration of something very important, viz the level of under-reporting.
