I don’t know about you, but I’m getting a little tired of waiting for the Hitlerian nightmare that the corporate media promised us was coming back in 2016. Frankly, I’m beginning to suspect that all their apocalyptic pronouncements were just parts of some elaborate cocktease. I mean, here we are, a year and half into the reign of the Trumpian Reich, and, well, where are all the concentration camps, the SS units with their death’s head insignia, the Riefenstahlian parades and rallies? Trump hasn’t even banned the Democratic Party, or annexed Canada, or invaded Mexico, or made anybody wear color-coded armbands. If he doesn’t start Hitlering relatively soon, the oracles of the corporate media are going to have some serious explaining to do.

I don’t think I’m overreacting. After all, back in 2016, The Guardian promised us an “Age of Darkness,” and the end of “civilized order” as we know it. “Globalization is dead, and white supremacy has triumphed,” one of its more hysterical pundits proclaimed. “Donald Trump is actually a fascist,” Michael Kinsley assured us in The Washington Post. Charles Blow of The New York Times warned that Trump’s election was “the beginning of the end,” the descent of the republic into “racial Orwellianism,” whatever that’s supposed to mean. Thomas Friedman called it “a moral 911.” Paul Krugman predicted nothing short of “a global recession with no end in sight.” Jonathan Chait, after heroically vowing not to flee the country with his terrified family, but to stay and fight to the bitter end, guaranteed us that the “monster,” Trump, would “shake the republic to its foundations.”

Perhaps my seismometer is on the fritz, but I haven’t detected much foundation shaking. Yes, Trump repulses me, personally. I do not like the man. I never have. I was based in New York for fifteen years, in the 1990s and early 2000s, before he became a game show host, when he was still just a shady real estate mogul with alleged ties to organized crime who occasionally appeared on Wrestlemania and just generally went about the city making a narcissistic ass of himself and plastering his gold-plated name onto everything. So I have no illusions about his character … the man is an inveterate snake oil salesman with the moral compass of a Tijuana pimp. All I’m saying is, we were promised Hitler, or Mussolini at the very least, and it seems like all we’re getting so far is just regular old narcissistic Donald Trump.

Of course, he could just be laying low and holding back on the Hitler stuff as part of the evil master plan personally developed by Vladimir Putin to systematically brainwash Americans (with state-of-the-art mind-control Facebook ads) into embracing all-out National Socialism and marching through the streets in full Nazi regalia singing Amerika Über Alles… at which point Trump will rip off his mask, reveal his true Hitlerian face, Steve Bannon will suddenly reappear in the turret of an M1 Abrams tank at the head of a division of rebel infantry flying giant Confederate flags as they hideously rumble down Pennsylvania Avenue, and the Putin-Nazi Holocaust will begin.

Or maybe the extremely serious, Pulitzer Prize-winning political pundit David Leonhardt is onto something. In a prominent op-ed in The New York Times, he wonders if Putin’s “secret plan” is for Trump to destroy “the Atlantic alliance” by arriving late for the G7 meeting and “picking fights over artificial issues,” not to mention insulting the Canadian prime minister, which, it doesn’t get much more hair-raising than that. OK, I know you’re probably thinking that sounds like the hopelessly paranoid jabber of some conspiracy theorist nut on YouTube, but we’re talking The New York Times here, folks, and a bona fide “respectable pundit” who wrote a whole 15,000-word ebook and has been interviewed by Stephen Colbert, among his many other distinguished accomplishments.

Examined in the context of other blatantly loony theories the corporate media are currently attempting to ram down our throats, Leonhardt’s theory kind of makes sense. The Guardian, another very serious newspaper, in addition to covering the repercussions of its coverage of Corbyn’s Nazi Death Cult, is hot on the trail of the soon-to-be-infamous Putin-Banks-Brexit Connection. According to “documents seen by The Observer,” a Guardian sister publication, Arron Banks, a “Brexit bankroller,” allegedly had brunch with the Russian ambassador three times, instead of just once, as he had claimed. He was also allegedly offered a piece of some shady gold deal in exchange for the number of someone on Trump transition team, which for some reason it was otherwise impossible to obtain. Or whatever. It doesn’t really matter what happened. The point is, Putin orchestrated the Brexit, presumably as part of his secret plan to destabilize the Atlantic alliance, and then blackmailed Trump into running for president with that “pee-tape” the Democrats paid a former British spook to allege exists.

Paul Krugman of The New York Times concurs. In his latest extremely serious piece of totally respectable grown-up opinionating, he once again calls Trump “a quisling” (he’s developed a fondness for this term, which goes over well with New York Times readers) and reiterates that Trump is “a de facto foreign agent” and that “America as we know it is finished.” Tragically, according to Krugman, the FBI, CIA, and other Guardians of Western Democracy are utterly powerless to deal with this quisling, and his evil puppet master, Putin, because it turns out the entire Republican Party is “hopelessly, irredeemably corrupt.” Yes, it appears the only chance we have to save the world from Trumpzilla, and imminent Putin-Nazi Holocaust, is to elect a buttload of Democrats to office, and eventually an Obama-like Democratic President, so they can launch an all-out thermonuclear war against Russia and North Korea … that’ll teach these Putin-Nazis to screw around with our trade agreements!

Oh, and also, we need to cancel the Brexit, and do away with all these “populist” movements that Putin has fomented all over Europe. For example, according to billionaire George Soros, the refugee-hating League in Italy is likely another Putin-backed front, part of his scheme to “dominate the West.” One can only assume that the AfD, the FPÖ, Rassemblement National, and every other extreme-Right party exploiting people’s rage and fear in Europe are parts of Putin’s grand conspiracy (except, of course, for the Ukrainian Nazis the Western alliance put into power). Soros, like billionaire Bruce Wayne before him, tired of waiting for the West to strike back, is taking matters into his own hands. Not only has he been tirelessly laboring to prevent Donald Trump from “destroying the world,” now he’s financing “Best for Britain,” a campaign to de-brainwash the British people, who, obviously, only voted for Brexit because they’d been brainwashed by the Putin-Nazis.

I could go on and on with this. Have you heard the the one about the Putin-Nazis conspiring with the NRA? How about the one where Emmanuel Macron, in order to protect the French from “fake news,” and division-sowing Putin-Nazi memes, wants the authority to censor the Internet? Or have you read the column in which David Brooks, without a detectable trace of irony, laments the passing of international relationships “based on friendship, shared values, loyalty, and affection” … seriously, he used the word “affection” in reference to the Western alliance, one of the most ruthless, mass-murdering empires in the history of ruthless, mass-murdering empires? Oh,yeah, and I almost forgot … MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is reporting that the North Korea summit was also orchestrated by Putin!

I’m not sure how much more bizarre things can get. This level of bull goose loony paranoia, media-generated mass hysteria, and mindless conformity would be hysterically funny … if it weren’t so fucking horrifying in terms of what it says about millions of Westerners, who are apparently prepared to believe almost anything the authorities tell them, no matter how nuts. That famous Voltaire quote comes to mind … “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities,” he wrote. Another, more disturbing way of looking at it is, people willing to believe absurdities, to switch off their critical thinking faculties in order to conform to an official narrative as blatantly ridiculous as the Putin-Nazi narrative, are people who have already surrendered their autonomy, who have traded it for the comfort of the herd. Such people cannot be reasoned with, because there isn’t really anyone in there. There is only whatever mindless jabber got injected into their brain that day, the dutiful repetition of which guarantees they remain a “normal” person (who believes what other normal persons believe), and not some sort of “radical” or “extremist.”

These people are the people who worry me … these “normal” people who, completely calmly, as if what they are saying wasn’t batshit crazy, explain how Trump is just like Hitler, and how Putin is trying to take over the world. I sit there and listen and smile at these people, some of whom are friends and colleagues, people who I genuinely like, and who genuinely like me in return, but who, under the right set of circumstances, would stand by and watch me marched into prison, or worse, and not utter a word in protest.

Look at the "attachments" of the people, media quoted in Hopkin's article.

    I was Just thinking the exact same thing. It is like, when everyone, family included, rejects all you attempt to awaken them to. And you are more like a hermit life style....This is when you know that what you know Is precisely facts and truths....Most people realize we type are correct, but they harbor inner deep fear of learning let alone to actually admit we are correct. They fear being called a racist and anti-Semite Nazi MORE than they fear death itself!


    They also know that once one admits to these truths, they go thru a series of issues. First is disbelief, then sadness and feeling of hopelessness, then after a few weeks inner thoughts of it all, severe Anger.


    Then a final issue of Oh Oh now what? Now not only must I re-think most all I thought I prior knew as factual truths..But I also will never again be at ease unless and until I can do something Real to assist others in a big-Fix. That's when another issue sets in...Who and Where are those so called Other awakened folk?.....Then once it sinks in that to be fully awake is akin to being like that Maytag Washing Machine Repair man guy, aka Loneliest guy in town....The sadness and anger modes repeat. A vicious circle one can say.


    So because of these issues we likely wont see many "others" join with the awake crowd anytime soon. Only when some form major SHTF events arrive to affect vast majority, then will that majority join up. And then they shall literally drive Us awakened ones crazy with non stop questions of "How? Why? Who" When? What?". And telling them we tried many times before to alert them to it all will go in one ear and out their other ear....Most by then will perish due to waited far too long to awaken I predict. So it will be back to hermit status again I suppose.

    It All reminds me of that famous TV Soap Opera most women viewed daily back 30-40 years ago called.

  8. It’s true that some of this is a matter of loony cultish shibboleths imposed to enforce conformity. But there’s more to it. This hysterical vilification of Trump is rational and purposive. The system depends on everybody blaming the other party for what CIA does to you. CIA has impunity and an illegal state of emergency based on secret law. They can kill anybody they want and get away with it, including the presidential puppet ruler, ask JFK, oh wait, you can’t, he’s dead. That absolute sovereignty means CIA’s in charge, the buck stops there. So it’s crucial to keep the public’s attention and emotional energy fixed on the puppet.

    Russia does pose a threat, but it’s not what we’re told. Tying the demonized political enemy to Russia is CIA’s way of disguising the real threat Russia poses. Russia is the world’s most effective advocate for black-letter rule of law, including human rights law that would destroy the CIA police state. The CIA regime’s fulla-shitness is obvious to everyone in the world except the American public.

    https://www.ohchr.org/EN/Issues/Indicators/Pages/HRIndicatorsIndex.aspx

    Russia complies with international law. The USA does not. The largest bloc Russia leads is not the SCO or the BRICS, it’s the G-192, the rule-of-law advocates in UNCTAD, UNESCO, and the General Assembly. People are now discussing Uniting for Peace as a means to counter US abuse of veto impunity in the UNSC. Uniting for Peace was originally devised in response to Soviet obstruction, so the tables have turned in a striking way. The free world is ~USA, and they’re going from strength to strength under the Russian nuclear umbrella. They’re going to break down the Iron Curtain and let us out.

    Agree.
    In their feverish desire to be correct in the eyes of their paymasters, the ever-opportunistic Paul Krugman of The New York Times, the ever-opportunistic "psychologist" David Brooks, and the "progressively" profiteering Rachel Maddow of MSNBC have crossed all barriers of decent behavior. They are the product of Rovian creation of reality, when facts -- the documented facts -- have no weight anymore.
    “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities,” indeed.

    Meanwhile, in Syria, "Drivers Behind the War on Syria and the Impoverishment of Us All:" https://www.globalresearch.ca/drivers-behind-the-war-on-syria-and-the-impoverishment-of-us-all/5644381
    "We know that the Western narratives about the war on Syria are entirely false, so what are some of the real reasons that are driving this overseas holocaust, and who is benefiting from it?
    To be blunt, Western policymakers seek to destroy secular democracy in Syria, along with its socially uplifting political economy, with a view to installing a compliant fascist Wahhabi government. The end result is chaos, the enrichment of the transnational “oligarchs” and the impoverishment of Syria.
    In doing this, the policymakers are also impoverishing the vast majority of people in Western countries1, destroying nation-state sovereignties, and endeavouring to create a totalitarian World Order. ...
    International financial institutions see local banking as a threat. Consequently, in Aleppo, Syria, terrorists destroyed local banking institutions."
    -- Same as in Libya. The banking cabal had led the US/EU coalition of war criminals to murder hundreds of thousands of people in order to destroy Libyan banking system and to satisfy Israel's aspirations for Ertez Israel: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article38009.htm

    That is one of the tragedies of the 21st century, the breakdown of inter personal relationships. As a young guy, I find older people (yes, even boomers) far more agreeable, open and personable than people aged 18-30.

    But the NDP party in Ontario is now openly communist, and you are right that the left is getting far more aggressive.

    "-- That the pogrom-like burning to death of ethnic Russians and others in Odessa shortly later in 2014 reawakened memories of Nazi extermination squads in Ukraine during World War II has been all but deleted from the American mainstream narrative even though it remains a painful and revelatory experience for many Ukrainians.
    — That the Azov Battalion of some 3,000 well-armed fighters, which has played a major combat role in the Ukrainian civil war and now is an official component of Kiev’s armed forces, is avowedly “partially” pro-Nazi, as evidenced by its regalia, slogans, and programmatic statements, and well-documented as such by several international monitoring organizations. [The Azov Battalion was financed by a Jewish oligarch Kolomojsky]. [https://images.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=http%3A%2F%2Frussia-insider.com%2Fsites%2Finsider%2Ffiles%2F-DaRo81rUvA.jpg&f=1]
    "— That stormtroop-like assaults on gays, Jews, elderly ethnic Russians, and other “impure” citizens are widespread throughout Kiev-ruled Ukraine, along with torchlight marches reminiscent of those that eventually inflamed Germany in the late 1920s and 1930s. And that the police and official legal authorities do virtually nothing to prevent these neo-fascist acts or to prosecute them. On the contrary, Kiev has officially encouraged them by systematically rehabilitating and even memorializing Ukrainian collaborators with Nazi German extermination pogroms and their leaders during World War II, renaming streets in their honor, building monuments to them, rewriting history to glorify them, and more."
    -- None of the 52 main Jewish American organizations raised their voices to condemn the revival of neo-Nazism (banderism) in Ukraine. Is this because of the ethnicity of the State Dept. organizers of the putsch, Nuland-Kagan and Pyatt? Or is it because of the zionists' visceral hatred towards Russia that has been protecting the sovereign state of Syria from the supremacist Israeli thugs?

  14. The Germans were happy with Hitler:

    As far as I can see the Russians are happy with Putin.
    I’m happy with Putin, maybe the only man in the world who protects us from a worldwide USA yoke.
    Trump, do I like him, no.
    But, he did not start new wars, and seems to be doing what he promised, as Hitler did: reducing unemployment.
    The comparison of Putin with Hitler, both stood, stand, in the way of what a powerfull group wants.
    Hitler let himself be provoked into war, Putin seems to be more clever.

    Hitler let himself be provoked into war
     
    The invasion of Poland, regardless of the reasons or provocations, did not create WWII. France and the UK declared war on Germany, not the other way round. France invaded Germany in September 1939, but was pushed out of Germany. Hitler then sought peace with both, but it was rejected.

    Putin, like Hitler, understands that war is a numbers game, and that the numbers of boots on the ground are not in their favour. Russia, like 1930s Germany is already in an undeclared war.
    , @WhiteWolf
    The EU should have been disbanded when Merkel let in the first foreign invasion. Especially when she then turned around and insisted that other European countries take in their share of invaders.

    I always liked the idea of the EU as a European thing. As a multicultural/White genocide thing not so much. Since Brussels seems intent on destroying Europe through mass third world integration and forced assimilation the EU would be better off dissolving.

    Yup the USA demographics are still careening towards the inevitable disaster, Trump has shown little desire in curbing it so far.

    Aliens are still pouring across the border and pumping out anchor babies. "White" babies are at 51.7% of births in 2017. Whites are likely at 48%. Crashing native America and lowering black birth rates are the only positives. But the flooding of immigrants means any small decrease in other non whites is meaningless.

    The USA only has a short window left where it has any sort of power, simply due to demographics. I have no clue what the elite's plan is, but the USA will not be a very steady vessel against Russia and China in 20 years.

    Russia has it's own demographic problem - low birth rates from 1990 - 2007, and now still an improved yet sub-replacement birth rate. However a 1.6 Russian rate is still far better than a 1.7 white American rate with massive immigration.

    All Russia has to do is wait, America will be the first to collapse, Europe is not that far behind. China also has massive demographic problems in its near future.

    It will be a smart move to learn Spanish or Russian.

    “These people are the people who worry me … these “normal” people who, completely calmly, as if what they are saying wasn’t batshit crazy, explain how Trump is just like Hitler, and how Putin is trying to take over the world. I sit there and listen and smile at these people, some of whom are friends and colleagues, people who I genuinely like, and who genuinely like me in return, but who, under the right set of circumstances, would stand by and watch me marched into prison, or worse, and not utter a word in protest.”

    The above is – barring something I have not read – the most important paragraph in any CJ Hopkins essay. It is his version of: We have met the enemy, and he is us.

    What Liberals (and we should remember that in cultural terms Neocons are left of center in everything that is most important) cannot understand, without becoming like CJ Hopkins, is that all self-righteous do-gooding makes monsters of two types. First, the self-righteous do-gooders must declare that they see monsters that must be destroyed ASAP, no matter the costs. Then in doing the destroying, increasing numbers of the do-gooders become actual monsters. And that is as true when the do-gooders are after an actual monster (say, chattel slavery or growing inequity in 18th century France) as when they are after what is little more than what their own biases and hatreds tell them to destroy.

    No one should doubt for a second that the ‘normal’ middle class and/or government employee Never Trumpers would, with the right prodding, produce tens of thousands of self-righteous freaks who would link arms with Antifa anarchists and Marxists and would declare it the essence of morality to bash the heads of every Trump supporter and every person who does not take an oath to hate Putin and Russia and demand that the US wipe both off the face of the earth.

    And they would do all that horrendous violence in the names of peace and free speech and democracy.

    Jake: That's why aprox 1/2 of americans during Hobammys reign finally woke up to what you described, and created very long lines at times going round the entire block at every usa gun store.

    And were buying so much hardware(firearms) and many cases of ammo per gun, that every gun store across the nation had vast shortages. I recall a typical AR-15 .223 rifle that usually sold for $650-$1,000 selling at stores, and even online used gun markets for double or more.

    Backlogs at gun manufacturing companies were like 6 to 12+ Months. .22 ammo was totally sold out nationwide and a 500 rnd box of .22 LR ammo that used to sell for $10 was now $100 or more and sold as fast as you listed it for sale.

    Things now have calmed down quite a lot. But it is likely due to folks have bought so many firearms and ammo cases they ran out of funds. Or have enough of each for the endurance should our worst nightmares come true. It is quite funny to see the usual group antiguners still spewing their full set of lies and anti gun crap, in their belief they can somehow disarm us or convince us to turn in all firearms like stupid Brits and Aussies did 25 years ago eh. Not gonna happen here.


    So while most americans still aint fully awake, I believe at least 1/2 of them have partially awakened to the potential severity of troubles we may face if as you stated becomes reality, say like a Hillary loon dem Marxist or total anti white African is elected again.


    No good method to know for sure how many own guns in each camp. But I do believe whiteys is the main owners of a huge majority of usa fireams that exist. So if They start it? Good luck since most of us baby boomers gen got little left to lose at this point. Many are also chomping at bit to use up some of that vast ammo supply they sit on too. Cannot say I blame them either.


    The day the left Marxist bunch decides to go whacko as you described is the day they discover they bit off way more than they can jew.


    ps: Hobammy will go down in usa history as Best ever firearm salesman of all time. Every time he spoke, and did his up turned face bluegum boot lip arrogant expression for photo-opps, lines formed long again at gun stores nationwide.

    , @seeing-thru
    Precisely my thoughts and my own pet theory as well, though you have articulated far better than I could. The problem is that when I think of do-gooders I become mad and bad.

    Here is my fix: Any person or group of persons seriously planning to do good without consent need to have a ton of good done to them. Like locking them up forever (good for the prison economy). Or boiling them in oil (may do good to the oil's flavor). Or feeding them to the 'gators (for the good health of those lovely 'gators).

    As far as I can see the Russians are happy with Putin.
    I'm happy with Putin, maybe the only man in the world who protects us from a worldwide USA yoke.
    Trump, do I like him, no.
    But, he did not start new wars, and seems to be doing what he promised, as Hitler did: reducing unemployment.
    The comparison of Putin with Hitler, both stood, stand, in the way of what a powerfull group wants.
    Hitler let himself be provoked into war, Putin seems to be more clever.
    The EU warned Netanyahu not to attack Iran, the EU will not survive another mass migration.

    Hitler let himself be provoked into war

    The invasion of Poland, regardless of the reasons or provocations, did not create WWII. France and the UK declared war on Germany, not the other way round. France invaded Germany in September 1939, but was pushed out of Germany. Hitler then sought peace with both, but it was rejected.

    Putin, like Hitler, understands that war is a numbers game, and that the numbers of boots on the ground are not in their favour. Russia, like 1930s Germany is already in an undeclared war.

    trump derangement syndrome here with Hopkins. Trump was a showman, like thousands of others.

    He also enjoyed celebrity , again, only this time, like millions of others.

    He likes women, especially in a state of undress. Who doesn’t? Women as much as men, like to look at pictures of naked ladies, maybe more than men.

    Maybe the whole article by Hopkins is a joke.

    What I do not fully understand, and Hopkins does not help…is how lunatic-hatred on the part of liberals has become so powerful.

    I talked some race, as in global North and global South and natural selection, to a liberal gal the other day, and she thought it made sense. But she still hates Trump.

    Or take the current moral Outrage over baby Mexicans at the border. None of it makes any sense, especially inasmuch as Mom and Pop can just keep family together by going home, which is not an option for the average burglary suspect, etc. here at home.

    Trump has become the default target for every aggrieved world-hating liberal sap. The world must be changed! I demand it!

    It may have something to do also with the perception that maybe they picked the wrong team, and that various career choices may have been wrong, in terms of jobs/career and so on. Given the armies of professional liberals wearing badges of Equality but scrambling for Privilege, Trump’s laughter at their expense must drive them nuts.

    And/or, the SJW types of youngsters (like I was at the time of Vietnam Slaughters) Trump is the Absolute Negation of everything they dream about…the Perfect World, and their own badges of Revolutionary Correctness/Rectitude which they desperately seek to pin on their chests/breasts.
    ( curiously, many young women bare their breasts in protest about something or other. More sexual politics, I guess, especially if they have nice tits.)

    I am you and you are me and we are all together. Milan Kundera has a great image in one of his novels about the Revolution in Hungary (?), the communist Revolution that is: A circle dance of young pioneer dancers spiraling up into the sky, like the Ascent of Christians to heaven. He admitted that he was of that delusion at the time. Hope morphed into Belief.

    The Delusions of Race Equality are also at hand. And even though Trump declares himself politically correct on that score, the Trump Deranged syndrome SJW children and their parents, deny that Trump is a fellow true-believer. Trump is a Racist! really, and so on.

    After a half-century of blatant failure of Blacks to improve the Content of Their Character, never mind getting grades good enough to get into college without privileged access, quotas, etc. older liberals, at least, smell Failure. Disillusion…dreams dying hard…contributes to the hatreds afoot.

    The kids vote for Bernie, but the parents are also disillusioned about socialism, yet the kids luv Bernie and even now blame Billary, etc. for Trump. Who can blame the kids what with the economy punishing their generation like we have not seen for generations…

    (The ten year cycle of recessions is about to recycle another recession, if history means anything in this regard. Trump is not out of trouble and his standard issue GOP economics is not going to save him if a recession roars in. Wages are still super low, etc, etc and will plummet in another recession, never mind Mexicans.)

    So, the desperation of adult liberals is two-fold, or three-fold. Socialism failed. Racial Equality has failed. They know it but cannot admit it to one-another. Trump has won, a repudiation of Everything they Luv.

    Hatred simmers in the melting-pot, acrid fumes enter the Body Politic. Liberals stagger while genuine conservatives have adjusted over the last couple decades to the stench of liberalism, all the while buying guns and waiting for the Tipping Point.

    Maybe this begins to account for the hatreds swirling out there. I have not even mentioned the hatreds of Blacks…who are the most aware of their Failure, and register it for example in their admiration of Elijah Muhammed, Reveredn Wright, and of course, the Obama Zip.

    Trump is just the Beginning as the American and European peasantry grab their pitchforks and head for Brussels and D.C.

    On origins of the Russia Threat: just more ‘perpetual war’ to rescue society from the inherent nihilism of liberalism:

    This is made clear in Strauss’s exchange with Kojève (reprinted in Strauss’s On Tyranny), and in his commentary on Schmitt’s The Concept of the Political (reprinted in Heinrich Meier, Carl Schmitt and Leo Strauss: The Hidden Dialogue). Kojève lamented the animalisation of man and Schmitt worried about the trivialisation of life. All three of them were convinced that liberal economics would turn life into entertainment and destroy politics; all three understood politics as a conflict between mutually hostile groups willing to fight each other to the death. In short, they all thought that man’s humanity depended on his willingness to rush naked into battle and headlong to his death. Only perpetual war can overturn the modern project, with its emphasis on self-preservation and “creature comforts.” Life can be politicised once more, and man’s humanity can be restored.
    This terrifying vision fits perfectly well with the desire for honour and glory that the neo-conservative gentlemen covet. It also fits very well with the religious sensibilities of gentlemen. The combination of religion and nationalism is the elixir that Strauss advocates as the way to turn natural, relaxed, hedonistic men into devout nationalists willing to fight and die for their God and country.

    trump derangement syndrome here with Hopkins. Trump was a showman, like thousands of others.

    He also enjoyed celebrity , again, only this time, like millions of others.

    He likes women, especially in a state of undress. Who doesn't? Women as much as men, like to look at pictures of naked ladies, maybe more than men.

    Maybe the whole article by Hopkins is a joke.

    What I do not fully understand, and Hopkins does not help...is how lunatic-hatred on the part of liberals has become so powerful.

    I talked some race, as in global North and global South and natural selection, to a liberal gal the other day, and she thought it made sense. But she still hates Trump.

    Or take the current moral Outrage over baby Mexicans at the border. None of it makes any sense, especially inasmuch as Mom and Pop can just keep family together by going home, which is not an option for the average burglary suspect, etc. here at home.

    Trump has become the default target for every aggrieved world-hating liberal sap. The world must be changed! I demand it!

    It may have something to do also with the perception that maybe they picked the wrong team, and that various career choices may have been wrong, in terms of jobs/career and so on. Given the armies of professional liberals wearing badges of Equality but scrambling for Privilege, Trump's laughter at their expense must drive them nuts.

    And/or, the SJW types of youngsters (like I was at the time of Vietnam Slaughters) Trump is the Absolute Negation of everything they dream about...the Perfect World, and their own badges of Revolutionary Correctness/Rectitude which they desperately seek to pin on their chests/breasts.
    ( curiously, many young women bare their breasts in protest about something or other. More sexual politics, I guess, especially if they have nice tits.)

    I am you and you are me and we are all together. Milan Kundera has a great image in one of his novels about the Revolution in Hungary (?), the communist Revolution that is: A circle dance of young pioneer dancers spiraling up into the sky, like the Ascent of Christians to heaven. He admitted that he was of that delusion at the time. Hope morphed into Belief.

    The Delusions of Race Equality are also at hand. And even though Trump declares himself politically correct on that score, the Trump Deranged syndrome SJW children and their parents, deny that Trump is a fellow true-believer. Trump is a Racist! really, and so on.

    After a half-century of blatant failure of Blacks to improve the Content of Their Character, never mind getting grades good enough to get into college without privileged access, quotas, etc. older liberals, at least, smell Failure. Disillusion...dreams dying hard...contributes to the hatreds afoot.

    The kids vote for Bernie, but the parents are also disillusioned about socialism, yet the kids luv Bernie and even now blame Billary, etc. for Trump. Who can blame the kids what with the economy punishing their generation like we have not seen for generations...

    (The ten year cycle of recessions is about to recycle another recession, if history means anything in this regard. Trump is not out of trouble and his standard issue GOP economics is not going to save him if a recession roars in. Wages are still super low, etc, etc and will plummet in another recession, never mind Mexicans.)

    So, the desperation of adult liberals is two-fold, or three-fold. Socialism failed. Racial Equality has failed. They know it but cannot admit it to one-another. Trump has won, a repudiation of Everything they Luv.

    Hatred simmers in the melting-pot, acrid fumes enter the Body Politic. Liberals stagger while genuine conservatives have adjusted over the last couple decades to the stench of liberalism, all the while buying guns and waiting for the Tipping Point.

    Hitler let himself be provoked into war
     
    The invasion of Poland, regardless of the reasons or provocations, did not create WWII. France and the UK declared war on Germany, not the other way round. France invaded Germany in September 1939, but was pushed out of Germany. Hitler then sought peace with both, but it was rejected.

    Putin, like Hitler, understands that war is a numbers game, and that the numbers of boots on the ground are not in their favour. Russia, like 1930s Germany is already in an undeclared war.

    Indeed.

    facts:

    - USSR invaded Finland, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland, invaded & annexed parts of Romania, invaded Iran, invaded northern Norway and the Danish island of Bornholm, yet the ‘Allies’ did nothing.

    - Poland invaded and annexed parts of Czechoslovakia, held large parts of German territory, was engaged in atrocities against German civilians. Yet the ‘Allies’ did nothing.

    - The “neutral” US had been attacking German U-boats & shipping, while supplying both Britain & the USSR long before Germany’s declaration of war on the US.

    I refuse to be friends with people stupid enough to believe the media propaganda. Did I mention I don't have any friends?

    I was Just thinking the exact same thing. It is like, when everyone, family included, rejects all you attempt to awaken them to. And you are more like a hermit life style….This is when you know that what you know Is precisely facts and truths….Most people realize we type are correct, but they harbor inner deep fear of learning let alone to actually admit we are correct. They fear being called a racist and anti-Semite Nazi MORE than they fear death itself!

    They also know that once one admits to these truths, they go thru a series of issues. First is disbelief, then sadness and feeling of hopelessness, then after a few weeks inner thoughts of it all, severe Anger.

    Then a final issue of Oh Oh now what? Now not only must I re-think most all I thought I prior knew as factual truths..But I also will never again be at ease unless and until I can do something Real to assist others in a big-Fix. That’s when another issue sets in…Who and Where are those so called Other awakened folk?…..Then once it sinks in that to be fully awake is akin to being like that Maytag Washing Machine Repair man guy, aka Loneliest guy in town….The sadness and anger modes repeat. A vicious circle one can say.

    So because of these issues we likely wont see many “others” join with the awake crowd anytime soon. Only when some form major SHTF events arrive to affect vast majority, then will that majority join up. And then they shall literally drive Us awakened ones crazy with non stop questions of “How? Why? Who” When? What?”. And telling them we tried many times before to alert them to it all will go in one ear and out their other ear….Most by then will perish due to waited far too long to awaken I predict. So it will be back to hermit status again I suppose.

    It All reminds me of that famous TV Soap Opera most women viewed daily back 30-40 years ago called.

    I would imagine a lot of the readers here have 'liberal' or 'liberal progressive' friends. I do. I genuinely like they, and they like me.
    However, I'm under no illusions were we under a totalitarian government and I was taken away they would sit back and idly watch. Probably distance themselves from me and my family. In America we don't have real friends anymore, we have associates.
    I think most people reading this sight would agree what we call the liberal left is the leading voice of enacting totalitarian policies To govern the county.
    We're going to see this become more aggressive with the generation of voters.

    They’re going to get us all one day. I’m already at peace with this fact.

    That is one of the tragedies of the 21st century, the breakdown of inter personal relationships. As a young guy, I find older people (yes, even boomers) far more agreeable, open and personable than people aged 18-30.

    But the NDP party in Ontario is now openly communist, and you are right that the left is getting far more aggressive. They will not be successful in Canada- the immigrants are actually positive for us in that respect- but the USA being flooded with socialist and anti white Hispanics is a whole other issue…

    Vlad Putin is the leader of the free World, most popular leader in the World, his people like what he's doing and that would be delivering them a better life while minding his own business internationally. Again I ask "what has Russia ever done to the USA"?
    The left is sinking fast these days, most people aren't interested in being over run with immigrants or watching the faggots make fools of themselves or having the State in their business all the time. Time to pave the roads, give us decent schools and Hospitals, put the junkies into leaky boats and send them out to Sea and make sure everyone gets fed. That's what we want, fuck that war shit, nobody wants that. America is nothing but a Thug Nation, at least Trump is something different, anything would be better than the status quo down there.
    Never mind, they'll be broke soon and the World will be wrecked for ten years, worth it I say.

    Yup the USA demographics are still careening towards the inevitable disaster, Trump has shown little desire in curbing it so far.

    Aliens are still pouring across the border and pumping out anchor babies. “White” babies are at 51.7% of births in 2017. Whites are likely at 48%. Crashing native America and lowering black birth rates are the only positives. But the flooding of immigrants means any small decrease in other non whites is meaningless.

    The USA only has a short window left where it has any sort of power, simply due to demographics. I have no clue what the elite’s plan is, but the USA will not be a very steady vessel against Russia and China in 20 years.

    Russia has it’s own demographic problem – low birth rates from 1990 – 2007, and now still an improved yet sub-replacement birth rate. However a 1.6 Russian rate is still far better than a 1.7 white American rate with massive immigration.

    All Russia has to do is wait, America will be the first to collapse, Europe is not that far behind. China also has massive demographic problems in its near future.

    It will be a smart move to learn Spanish or Russian.

    "These people are the people who worry me … these “normal” people who, completely calmly, as if what they are saying wasn’t batshit crazy, explain how Trump is just like Hitler, and how Putin is trying to take over the world. I sit there and listen and smile at these people, some of whom are friends and colleagues, people who I genuinely like, and who genuinely like me in return, but who, under the right set of circumstances, would stand by and watch me marched into prison, or worse, and not utter a word in protest."

    The above is - barring something I have not read - the most important paragraph in any CJ Hopkins essay. It is his version of: We have met the enemy, and he is us.

    What Liberals (and we should remember that in cultural terms Neocons are left of center in everything that is most important) cannot understand, without becoming like CJ Hopkins, is that all self-righteous do-gooding makes monsters of two types. First, the self-righteous do-gooders must declare that they see monsters that must be destroyed ASAP, no matter the costs. Then in doing the destroying, increasing numbers of the do-gooders become actual monsters. And that is as true when the do-gooders are after an actual monster (say, chattel slavery or growing inequity in 18th century France) as when they are after what is little more than what their own biases and hatreds tell them to destroy.

    No one should doubt for a second that the 'normal' middle class and/or government employee Never Trumpers would, with the right prodding, produce tens of thousands of self-righteous freaks who would link arms with Antifa anarchists and Marxists and would declare it the essence of morality to bash the heads of every Trump supporter and every person who does not take an oath to hate Putin and Russia and demand that the US wipe both off the face of the earth.

    And they would do all that horrendous violence in the names of peace and free speech and democracy.

    Puritans, Jacobins, Bolsheviks, Maoists, Neocons, Clintonistas: self-righteous do-gooders all.

    Jake: That’s why aprox 1/2 of americans during Hobammys reign finally woke up to what you described, and created very long lines at times going round the entire block at every usa gun store.

    And were buying so much hardware(firearms) and many cases of ammo per gun, that every gun store across the nation had vast shortages. I recall a typical AR-15 .223 rifle that usually sold for $650-$1,000 selling at stores, and even online used gun markets for double or more.

    Backlogs at gun manufacturing companies were like 6 to 12+ Months. .22 ammo was totally sold out nationwide and a 500 rnd box of .22 LR ammo that used to sell for $10 was now $100 or more and sold as fast as you listed it for sale.

    Things now have calmed down quite a lot. But it is likely due to folks have bought so many firearms and ammo cases they ran out of funds. Or have enough of each for the endurance should our worst nightmares come true. It is quite funny to see the usual group antiguners still spewing their full set of lies and anti gun crap, in their belief they can somehow disarm us or convince us to turn in all firearms like stupid Brits and Aussies did 25 years ago eh. Not gonna happen here.

    So while most americans still aint fully awake, I believe at least 1/2 of them have partially awakened to the potential severity of troubles we may face if as you stated becomes reality, say like a Hillary loon dem Marxist or total anti white African is elected again.

    No good method to know for sure how many own guns in each camp. But I do believe whiteys is the main owners of a huge majority of usa fireams that exist. So if They start it? Good luck since most of us baby boomers gen got little left to lose at this point. Many are also chomping at bit to use up some of that vast ammo supply they sit on too. Cannot say I blame them either.

    The day the left Marxist bunch decides to go whacko as you described is the day they discover they bit off way more than they can jew.

    ps: Hobammy will go down in usa history as Best ever firearm salesman of all time. Every time he spoke, and did his up turned face bluegum boot lip arrogant expression for photo-opps, lines formed long again at gun stores nationwide.

    the EU will not survive another mass migration.

    Greetings . In my opinion the EU will not survive this present mass migration . The Governments of European nations have betrayed their own citizens for more than 40 years , to benefit unproductive people from strange lands , surrendering to the delusional american liberal model of multiculturalism .

    Merkel`s opening the doors of Germany to 1 million refugees a couple of years ago was the straw that broke the camels back . Merkel has destroyed the EU with her ” austerity ” for europeans , plus her racism toward southern europeans , her disastrous mass incorporation of eastern europeans to he EU ( always german Drang nach Osten ) , and her generosity with muslim mass migration . There is something rotten in the germans , they lack something , they always end up spoiling everything .

    I just discovered the brilliant Shadia Drury, one of the best resources on the Neocon and Straussian concept of the 'Noble Lie', and the enemy (previously War On Terror, now Russia Threat) to unite the nihilism of liberal society and prevent it from disintegrating.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2EYFFJ_NqI

    whew.
    < 2 minutes in, "Strauss is a victim of the holocaust because he had to leave Germany and learn an all-new language . . ."

    boo hoo.

    Fact check:

    “In 1931, Strauss sought his post-doctoral habilitation with the theologian Paul Tillich, but was turned down. After receiving a Rockefeller Fellowship in 1932, Strauss left his position at the Higher Institute for Jewish Studies in Berlin for Paris.” wikipedia

    iow, Strauss had the same problem Hitler had: he got turned down for something he ardently wanted to do. A holocaust, I tells ya!
    But wait: he got bailed out by the Rockefellers.

    In 1932.
    When Stalin and the Jewish Trotskyites were killing Russians, Ukrainians and yes, Jews, by the hundreds of thousands.

    Drury says:
    “Strauss held that Jews are like Socrates . . . the brilliant few resented by the vulgar masses.”

    So is it hemlock that Jews drink on Passover and Purim as they celebrate the slaughter of the innocent Egyptian babies and the 75,000 innocent Persians?

    What a pompous arse.

    When I was in Syria in the eighties those who knew the land and spoke the language explained to me that the then Assad ruled by playing out five secret services against one another.

    I’ve been to Syria pre-war twice and felt the tension in the air. I was married to a “upper class” Syrian. I remember telling her that the country was going to blow and to tell her father to sell-up and take his money out of the country. He didn’t believe. I just felt it!

    The Germans were happy with Hitler:

    As far as I can see the Russians are happy with Putin.
    I'm happy with Putin, maybe the only man in the world who protects us from a worldwide USA yoke.
    Trump, do I like him, no.
    But, he did not start new wars, and seems to be doing what he promised, as Hitler did: reducing unemployment.
    The comparison of Putin with Hitler, both stood, stand, in the way of what a powerfull group wants.
    Hitler let himself be provoked into war, Putin seems to be more clever.
    The EU warned Netanyahu not to attack Iran, the EU will not survive another mass migration.

    The EU should have been disbanded when Merkel let in the first foreign invasion. Especially when she then turned around and insisted that other European countries take in their share of invaders.

    I always liked the idea of the EU as a European thing. As a multicultural/White genocide thing not so much. Since Brussels seems intent on destroying Europe through mass third world integration and forced assimilation the EU would be better off dissolving.

    Here is my fix: Any person or group of persons seriously planning to do good without consent need to have a ton of good done to them. Like locking them up forever (good for the prison economy). Or boiling them in oil (may do good to the oil’s flavor). Or feeding them to the ‘gators (for the good health of those lovely ‘gators).

    How many millions of mothers (and fathers) drag-and-drop their kids in daycare, from veeeerrrry early age, despite cries and screams? They do it so they can go to their jobs to make enough money to afford daycare.

    NO sympathy, no heart strings tugged by SJW wailing and gnashing of teeth over babies in a vacant Walmart.

    Wonder if the Waltons gave US a good price.

    Wonder if SJWs wail and gnash teeth over babies that Israelis kill.

    US does everything else Israeli -- police tactics, airport security -- US should adopt Israeli border protection policy: shoot 'em.

    You could set up another fake massacre but instead of a school or rock concert make it at the border. Make it really horrific with a hundred or so fake illegals shot to bits including women and children. Get Trump to praise the actions of border guards as well to send the message that illegals will be slaughtered en masse from now on.

    "We have two levels of indoctrination at work here.
    First, comparisons to ‘Hitler & the Nazis’ are meant to associate the targets of such comparisons with the ‘holocaust’, a bizarre religion."
    -- This is why the Kagans-Banderites' putsch in Ukraine should be mentioned tirelessly for the "progressives." Every time the "righteous" begin bloviating on Putin-Nazis, the facts of the banderism (neo-Nazism) revival in Ukraine must be shoved to them. Hit the suppressors of free speech where it hurts.

    Good advice.

  54. I hope the EU is on the point of implosion, and with it the horrible euro.
    The euro is a political project, making impossible sovereign social and economic policy.
    It is not just the migration crisis, the southern countries are nearly bankrupt, GB is leaving.
    At the last French presidential elections four out of ten vote went to candidates, Le Pen and Mélenchon, who want to leave the EU.
    Macron just now tried an euro zone reform, throwing the debts together, it would have cost hundreds of million of euro’s from countries like us, the Netherlands, but mainly Germany.
    The euro made the usual escape from competition problems, devaluation, impossible.
    Macron rgot, to save faces, I suppose, tens of millions.
    Merkel now has got two weeks from German politicians to sort out the migrant problem, Germans want to close their borders, if not, borders will be closed, Merkel is out, and borderless travel in the EU is out too.
    The whole problem is quite simple, Europeans do not exist, there are some 28 peoples, languages and cultures.
    The mass immigration had as goal to destroy the separate cultures, is my opinion.
    Alas the problem of quitetly dissolving EU and euro will never happen, too many careers and institutions are based on the monsters.

  55. Hitler did not foresee the GB and French declarations of war.
    France, as Britain, did nothing until April 1940, they then planned to occupy neutral Norway and Sweden.
    Their planning was so clumsy that Hitler was there a few days before them.
    But then Hitler knew that no peace was to be expected, so he beat France, in the hope that Churchill would give up.
    Churchill had other ideas, so had FDR, and Stalin.

    whew.
    < 2 minutes in, "Strauss is a victim of the holocaust because he had to leave Germany and learn an all-new language . . ."

    boo hoo.

    Fact check:

    "In 1931, Strauss sought his post-doctoral habilitation with the theologian Paul Tillich, but was turned down. After receiving a Rockefeller Fellowship in 1932, Strauss left his position at the Higher Institute for Jewish Studies in Berlin for Paris." wikipedia
     
    iow, Strauss had the same problem Hitler had: he got turned down for something he ardently wanted to do. A holocaust, I tells ya!
    But wait: he got bailed out by the Rockefellers.

    In 1932.
    When Stalin and the Jewish Trotskyites were killing Russians, Ukrainians and yes, Jews, by the hundreds of thousands.

    Drury says:
    "Strauss held that Jews are like Socrates . . . the brilliant few resented by the vulgar masses."

    So is it hemlock that Jews drink on Passover and Purim as they celebrate the slaughter of the innocent Egyptian babies and the 75,000 innocent Persians?

    What a pompous arse.



    This chick disqualifies herself by wringing the silk holocaust hankie.

    Maybe she redeems herself later --

    Yes, she’s all over the place.
    But I think she nails Strauss’s impact.

    You're right, Drury did give good insight into Strauss & his impact. Whoever compiled these clips, from Drury on Strauss to the Wolfowitz interview just after 9/11, made all the right connections.

    And the chain of attitudes and actions can be examined in both directions, backward, to Strauss's expectations of Jew-power in Weimar -- he expected Jews to be the elite overseers of the "vulgar masses" who resented being resented by said vulgar masses.

    The “nazi-hunters” at stopantisemitism.org should visit the Nuland-liberated Ukraine, where the activities of the US Zionists (specifically, Nuland-Kagan and Pyatt) have brought about a revival of neo-Nazism (banderism) and the consequent rise in real anti-semitism -- not the one invented by the Jewish vigilantes at stopantisemitism.org
    If the “nazi-hunters” from stopantisemitism.org are serious about the memory of the WWII, they should better start investigating the pro-Nazi activities of the Kagans’ clan first and foremost (see the “liberated” Ukraine) and then proceed with investigating the Israeli citizen Kolomojsky, who was the main financier of the openly neo-Nazi Azov Battalion.

    It’s projection. They fantasize about doing the same things they falsely imagine Trump will do to them, but to their enemies. They are dangerous. The internet has also allowed the masses to see just how utterly incompetent the Ruling Class is. Neopotism, networking, and geography got them their positions, not talent or erudition.

    “These people are the people who worry me … these “normal” people who, completely calmly, as if what they are saying wasn’t batshit crazy, explain how Trump is just like Hitler, and how Putin is trying to take over the world. I sit there and listen and smile at these people, some of whom are friends and colleagues, people who I genuinely like, and who genuinely like me in return, but who, under the right set of circumstances, would stand by and watch me marched into prison, or worse, and not utter a word in protest.”

    They can never be allowed to come to power. Ever. Their hysteria over Trump has let the mask slip too much. They have been revealed. It is no different than if Hitler had announced the Holocaust before taking office. At that point, it would have been morally correct to deny him regardless of the vote. We may very well have to consider this in 2020. Do you really want to hand your fate over to these people? They have made their psychotic feelings plain. On top of that, they are incompetent buffoons.

    Vlad Putin is the leader of the free World, most popular leader in the World, his people like what he's doing and that would be delivering them a better life while minding his own business internationally. Again I ask "what has Russia ever done to the USA"?
    The left is sinking fast these days, most people aren't interested in being over run with immigrants or watching the faggots make fools of themselves or having the State in their business all the time. Time to pave the roads, give us decent schools and Hospitals, put the junkies into leaky boats and send them out to Sea and make sure everyone gets fed. That's what we want, fuck that war shit, nobody wants that. America is nothing but a Thug Nation, at least Trump is something different, anything would be better than the status quo down there.
    Never mind, they'll be broke soon and the World will be wrecked for ten years, worth it I say.

    At the top levels there is no difference between the demonrats or the republicons, they are all controlled by the committee of 300 and or the Zionist one world government types and Trump like Helliary is just another puppet of these elite Satanists and probably are Satanists themselves.

    If you doubt that zionists control the U.S., think about this, Israel and the zionist controlled deep state did 911 and got away with it and every thinking American knows this to be true.

    To see what the elites have planned for America read The Committee of 300 by John Coleman, can be had on amazon and watch his videos on youtube.

    At the top levels there is no difference between the demonrats or the republicons, they are all controlled by the committee of 300 and or the Zionist one world government…

    “There is only one party in the United States… and it has two right wings: Republican and Democrat. Republicans are a bit stupider, more rigid, more doctrinaire in their laissez-faire capitalism than the Democrats, who are cuter, prettier, a bit more corrupt – until recently … and more willing than the Republicans to make small adjustments when the poor, the black, the anti-imperialists get out of hand. But, essentially, there is no difference between the two parties.”

Of course, he could just be laying low and holding back on the Hitler stuff as part of the evil master plan personally developed by Vladimir Putin to systematically brainwash Americans (with state-of-the-art mind-control Facebook ads) into embracing all-out National Socialism and marching through the streets in full Nazi regalia singing Amerika Über Alles… at which point Trump will rip off his mask, reveal his true Hitlerian face, Steve Bannon will suddenly reappear in the turret of an M1 Abrams tank at the head of a division of rebel infantry flying giant Confederate flags as they hideously rumble down Pennsylvania Avenue, and the Putin-Nazi Holocaust will begin.

    Well, yes it does. That is, the conditions under which a democracy can operate are met, almost exclusively, by tribal cultures. Now, I suppose you might not know your ass from a hole in the ground as to what constitutes culture, much less tribal culture, but one thing a seer such as yourself should understand is that democracy can exist nowhere else BUT some variation of “tribal”.
