Canadian ex-MSM journalist Greg Felton says: “The United States is a stupid country run by stupid people who have no respect for reason.” WHAT?! Them’s fightin’ words, pardner!

We also argue about religion, sacred violence and sacrifice, and the moon landings…but largely agree about Zionism and the 9/11 wars.

    The people really running it are not stupid. They’re dishonest, evil, selfish, and ruthless, but not stupid. Granted, some of the people they use are stupid.

    They may be clever, but the fact that they have maneuvered this country into a dead end does not say much for their intelligence.

    “Stupid Country Run by Stupid People” (with vassal states run my mindless peons)

    Stupid like fox!!!!! We might only improved the image of radical Islamo patriarchal fascism Jihadis, but Europe west of Poland is ruined and Europe west of Russia but east of Germany is just screwed. Sorry Sweden, we still like blond people though.

    Them’s fightin’ words, pardner! – Silly cowboy movie reference. ‘mericans under 30 have not seen a cowboy movie. Y’re really taking ‘mericans over 50, hombre(*). US of A is now a militarist state, use Army talk in your shoddy parodies of ‘merican speech patterns, Hurrah!

    * Hombre pronounced like ‘The Duke’ not a Mexican spoke it.

    In summary, maybe China is the big winner of the GWOT, but USA is still a winner. Before the GWOT Europe was in pretty good, steady as she goes, shape, while the US was becoming slowly irrelevant. In the parable of the Tortoise and the Hare Europe was the eventually winning Tortise. How’s that GWOT working out in London and Paris, and the London wannabees like Stockholm and Berlin? Stupid is as stupid does to themselves, not others. W might be the most important figure in European history. All those other dudes like Ceaser and Alexander were temporary, W literally changed the genetics of Europe.

  5. Here is a link to photos of man’s stuff left on the moon:

    https://www.theguardian.com/science/2011/sep/06/moon-photographs-apollo-astronauts

    It is from the Guardian, unfortunately. But if this is a lie, it would be NASA’s. So current employees would be participating. Let’s ask Putin. He is much more trustworthy than anyone in the US government or media today.

    Also, don’t you think that false flag “conspiracy theories” are part of the bag of tricks?
    You interrupted Greg too much — not a good interview.

    Now that the country is perhaps days away from yet another self-destructive war for the criminal Zionist state, it becomes obvious that the “dishonest, selfish, ruthless” man who put Pompeo and Bolton into positions of great power is either evil or stupid or both.

    It is a tragedy of immense proportions that those men who opposed the creation of a Jewish state were not listened to. Now the entire world is suffering the consequences.

    Nope, stupid. They’ve inherited something they are literally too stupid to keep. Stupid dishonest, Stupid evil, Stupid selfish, and Stupid ruthless is still stupid.

    If you want proof, consider that they’re replacing themselves with a world average 82 IQ population, which is now in revolt against them _and is outhinking them_.

    I disagree. Evil is always stupid and banal. At best, evil people possess a low, animal cunning, but that isn’t the same as intelligence. As CI and donut replied, they are indeed stupid though cunning.

    Many thanks for your comments to my interview with Kevin. I am glad so many of you think as I do. My use of “stupid” was more reactive than considered, and although the term does apply, “irrational” would have been a better choice. It is hard to find any semblance of intelligent, America-first thinking in a government wholly bribed, blackmailed and bullied by the Israel lobby. I accept Antiwar 7’s preference for “dishonest,” “selfish” and “ruthless” insofar as he is referring to the real manipulators and determiners of U.S. policy. I would, though, disagree with the use of “evil”: it applies to the black-and-white moral universe of religion, and the world of man is made of multiple shades of grey. “Malevolent” and “psychopathic” would be better.

    As for American society, I accept that there are many intelligent Americans who want an end to the destruction of their republic, but the the corporate MSM ensures that American society as a whole is distracted and propagandized into a stupor so that it does not realize that the U.S. no longer exists as an independent country. Perhaps this is the best defence for my use of “stupid,” which also applies to the mindless self-defeating utterances of the likes of Lyndsay Graham, Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

    To appreciate how the U.S. betrayed itself to become a client state of Israel, get your copy of The Host and the Parasite–How Israel’s Fifth Column Consumed America at thehostandtheparasite.com

    Thanks, again,

    Considering that we have more Moslems than Jews now, despite having almost none in 1950, it’s hard to see where he is wrong.

  13. Alfa158 says:

    A person does not have to be stupid to do stupid thing. One of the facts of human nature is that smart people can still believe in and do stupid things. Many of the people who run our country belong to an ethnic group whose average IQ is a full standard deviation above average. That doesn’t always work in your favor because sometimes being smarter and more educated just means you turn those formidable resources on performing the mental gymnastics needed to believe stupid stuff you would otherwise dismiss.

    Actually, many of the “stupid people who don’t believe in the moon landing” are not from the US–because any US scientist or academic would be fired for even hinting at such heresy.

    The only Americans I know who question the _manned_ moon landing are highly intelligent and highly suspicious of authority figures (and others who use insults and name calling when making arguments).

    Just a question for Greg.

    I concede that our Republic is in free fall in no small measure to the corrupting influence of Zionist Jews.

    But are you allowed to say such things without fear in Canada?

    I remember reading about the careers of a number of Canadians who dared to question the official narrative on the holocaust and ended up being destroyed.

    So they’re lying when they say “Islamophobia” is a problem, Mohammedan immigration isn’t, and Geert Wilders and Robert Spencer aren’t good, honest people with a valid point?

    We agree with your´s disagreement, supreme opportunism is the equivalent of ethical behavior.

    The elites in the public view (including the US presidents), one must concede, need to talk and crab walk as deep sea slumps. The ignorant, apathetic human inflation, the consumer sludge, at the bottom of the hierarchy would otherwise not be reassured.

    How does one call an elite that is narcissistic, self indulgent, exhibitionistic. In that game they are beat by Holywood actors, …who look better and have better dialogues written for them.

    The lice sucking blood in the shadows, are smarter, …not smart enough. How does one measure individuals that have no regard for their own descendants, as if their own brethren need no clean air and water. A game that must end with the burn up of toxicity and resource exhaustion.

    Mohammedans live in ghettos just like Jews (which is good, I don’t want them to assimilate), demand special halal meals even in jail, etc. If you’re from Canada you should know this. They’re like Jews’ retarded cousins (as are the Gypsies): Mooslimbs rape individual women, Jews rape nations. Indeed, Jews and Muslims have joined together to beat down their White Gentile/kafir hosts in every occasion, parasites have to stick together!
    https://www.jpost.com/Jewish-World/Jewish-Features/Far-rights-election-success-worries-European-Jewry-354460

    After the vote, the Gathering of European Muslim and Jewish Leaders, an interfaith group affiliated with the American Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, vowed to “work closely together to fight Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and xenophobia and prevent the far right parties from realizing their goal of passing a common legislative agenda in the European Parliament severely restricting the rights of religious minorities.”

    “Just as European Muslim and Jewish leaders joined forces in recent months in successfully combating an effort by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe to outlaw circumcision and to protest Denmark’s new law banning kosher and halal slaughtering, we will now stand together and speak with one voice against efforts by the extremist parties to implement their hateful agenda,” FFEU founder Rabbi Marc Schneier said.

    One of the facts of human nature is that smart people can still believe in and do stupid things

    Thomas DiLorenzo at Mises Institute explained Socialism in a talk pitched to millennials.
    https://www.unz.com/video/misesmedia_ten-things-you-should-know-about-socialism-thomas-j-dilorenz-2/

    Mostly good information, but his blanket application of his thesis to the “socialism” of Mussolini’s Fascism and National Socialism in the Third Reich failed to consider the entire context of the times and the specific challenges each leader was attempting to defend against, and the form of growth and development each relatively young state was attempting to achieve.

    Ergo, DiLorenzo’s teaching is just as “stupid” as the universities he criticized, and his audience will emerge with their “stupid” and bigoted understanding of Fascism and Nation Socialism reaffirmed, which, of course, serves to strengthen the zionist stranglehold on USA — and the universities, etc.

    (Specific examples involve DiLorenzo’s demeaning of Mussolini’s Autobiography because it was titled “My Autobiography,” — “like a 3rd grader.” In fact, Il Duce was a fairly accomplished thinker and writer.
    Re Germany, DiLorenzo criticized their disdain for debt finance, large corporations/stores, etc., but did not discuss NS concern for LABOR ‘capitalism.’)

    Y0ur bigoted cracks and insults about Muslims betray your ignorance of them (they do NOT live in ghettoes) and demonstrate that you cannot think rationally. The “white” argument is proof that your understanding of politics is only skin deep.

    Your argument is convoluted and reflects typical Christian prejudice. Wilders and Spencer are distasteful bigots, Muslim (use the correct term) immigration is not necessarily a problem, and Islamophobia IS an institutionalized problem. I don’t have to support the ADL (“Arab Defamation League”) to believe this.

    Whenever there is some posting from Mises, then you must tread very carefully.

    Lolbertarianism is a front for the money powers..

    Most people don’t have the mental software to deal with their soft propaganda.

    Getting some things right, and weaving in wrong things is the province of a good propagandist.

    The reality is that government in its sector is a fourth factor of production. That sector is inelastic markets and the commons.

    Lolbertarians would disagree, and they would be wrong. We are at a point in history, where there is so much BS slinging, that you should decouple from the slingers.

  32. MEFOBILLS says:
    @Greg Felton

    Muslim (use the correct term) immigration is not necessarily a problem, and Islamophobia IS an institutionalized problem.

    On principle, no country should immigrate a people group that becomes an irritant. Countries and their people have an inherent sovereign right to say who can immigrate, and who can be blocked. A country can block all immigration and even expel people if it is truly sovereign.

    This notion that immigration is an unmitigated good needs to be thrown onto the ash heap where it belongs.

    What does the data say? Are Muslims good immigrants or not? Which kind of Muslims integrate and which kind don’t? What happens in prisons with Muslim theology? Do Muslims self segregate? Do Muslims push for Sharia when in sufficient numbers? What is the history of Muslim immigration into foreign lands, and what can be learned from this history? Which Muslim groups are antagonistic to other Muslim groups.

    Can a nation stand when it is riven with internal contradictions?
