American Conservative’s Rod Dreher is frustrated at Chick-Fil-A telling Christians to suk-their-cok. His “Benedict Option” is why they can get away with it.

They are bending over to the elite consensus: unrestricted capitalist greed centered around the Big Brown Eye instead of the Golden Calf. The Christian charities Chick-Fil-A has historically funded, specializing in helping needy children, will no longer enjoy support from the chain.

According to opinion researcher Patrick Ruffini, in a multi-party democracy only 12% of Americans would vote for our oligarchy’s guiding ideology.

Dreher is right to perplexed. Business-wise Chick-Fil-A is winning the decade long cultural crusade against it by the Booty Warriors. They are now the third largest fast food restaurant in America.

So why does the Silent Majority keep losing?

The problem ultimately stems from the pride of every even-tempered conservative: a lack of an offense-oriented moral zeal.

Right-wingers assume society, economics and culture are governed by agents engaging in their immediate self-interest. This is the heritage of Adam Smith and Friedrich Hayek, omnipresent in conservative orthodoxy. Columnists as recently as September expressed this, scoffing at homosexual activists looking silly wasting their time and energy getting mad at fried chicken for not being gay enough. Wouldn’t they rather be doing poppers, going to an Abba concert or having an orgy?

Yet they got their way.

Both modern Christians and conservatives lack the authoritarian impulses of the lavender jackboot on their neck. While Jewish capitalists like Fred Eyechaner and Paul Singer donate $10s of millions of dollars to gay pressure groups and the two major parties (one to push the agenda, the other to throw the fight), the very owners of Chick-Fil-A, worth $11 billion themselves, refuse to translate money into either cultural or political power.

While the causes they fight for are anti-social and despicable, Jews demonstrate moral courage when walking all over the values of the majority.

When Starbucks’ left-liberal corporate activism began to hurt its profitability, Howard Schultz told shareholders unhappy about his controversial input on political controversies to sell their stake and leave.

Jews disprove the assertion that humans only engage with the world selfishly. This is something only taught to white people. Jews donate an extraordinary amount of their wealth to Zionist organizations, ethnic solidarity building and a wide array of political and cultural causes, which is why no decision is made anywhere in America without the Jewish community’s input (or veto). They have a sense of civic and racial duty most white people no longer have.

For Chick-Fil-A, it makes perfect sense to acquiesce to the organized and fanatical gay protesters: they lose nothing by doing so.

Christians and conservatives have to get up to go to work in the morning or want to spend their free time with their children. Plus standing up for what’s right can lose you points in the American social credit system. The “live and let live” philosophy of the liberal right means nobody is going to picket the local chicken shop because they threw the Salvation Army under the bus.

Some would even say they don’t agree, but excuse this act of spinelessness as “well they have to do what’s best for their business.” Rod Dreher himself will probably continue stopping in for a chicken deluxe with waffle fries when nobody is looking.

You see institutions fail the public across the board thanks to this mindset. In Kentucky, a Donald Trump supporter had his camera destroyed by anarchists right in front of the police, who instead of arresting the culprit told him to stop antagonizing them by exercising his First Amendment rights. The cops correctly assume that the guy with the blue lives matter flag will choose the path of least resistance, so that’s whose rights get violated when forced to choose.

The City Journal published an article lamenting how Judeo-leftists in the press have succeeded in censoring a myriad of conservative columnists, even though most right-wingers in the media refuse to respond in kind. Andy Ngo was brutally assaulted while engaging in news-gathering, yet leftist groups masquerading as protectors of press freedom like the Committee for Protecting Journalists and the Columbia Journalism Review refuse to even pretend to condemn the communists that frequently beat him or physically intimidate his family with night time visits to their homes.

The conservative pride in being reasonable is now a conveyer belt to the West’s incineration.

The power of the left is framing every issue, big or small, as life or death. This triggers solidarity and altruism, which translates into collective power, which then changes the world.

Christians only seem to fight this hard with the abortion issue, where pro-life advocates argue that babies are being systematically murdered. Activists on this front fight with heart, but pro-abortion advocates match them, by claiming that banning the practice would lead to women dying. In many states, the well-funded abortion lobby has been fought to a stalemate.

All of this reminds me of a debate with a conservative leaning white nationalist, who suggested that calling the demographic replacement of whites in the West a “genocide” hurt the cause because it was a bit sensational.

But the point isn’t that it’s good marketing or semantically true, it’s that it energizes activists to fight with the passion, selflessness and desperation the situation demands.

Ultimately, for Christians and conservatives, the biggest flaw is the Republican party’s unholy alliance with capital. Homosexual activists can count on Democratic lawmakers across the country to use state power to ban Chick-Fil-A from opening in their cities. The GOP, on the other hand, is the party of the radically pro-gay, anti-white Jewish slavedrivers at Uber.

Those interested in defending decency and liberty must dismiss the banality of Rod Dreher’s “Benedict Option,” which suggests right-wingers drop out of society and hide in their suburban homes and churches in hopes the social engineers won’t notice them.

History has shown that the only way to fight the mob is to become one to contest the public square.

The only power a majority has in a plutocratic police state like America is to come together and crush the oppressors with one big flex of the bicep.

The religious frenzy left-liberals approach every single issue is to be mirrored, not mocked.

It has been written that when Ayn Rand pushed the self-destruct button in 1968, even her long time followers were relieved. Towing a party line is exhausting. It also destroys creative impulses that make new and useful connections, even if now and then people disagree.

    It is beginning to look like Democrats might win. Maybe not, but their loss is no longer certain. Chik-Fil-A knows just how intolerant and punitive liberals are. It does not want to be supporting anti-LGBTQ causes if Democrats win control.

    This action is called “hedging your bets.” Victorious Republicans will not punish Chik-Fil-A for their support of anybody. Victorious Democrats will go on a witch hunt and destroy anyone who has opposed their causes.

    how many commenters here support progressive taxation, labor unions, the welfare state, elective abortion, and the like, even though Jews support those, too?

    The problem is not whether one supports them, it is how to resolve the issues which gave rise to their existence. Income taxes increased as tariffs disappeared, progressive or otherwise. Income taxes came into being because of the Federal Reserve. Eliminate the Fed, restore control of currency to the government, getting out of “free trade”, and re-introducing tariffs go a long way to solving taxation.
    Labor unions exist because of lax employment standards and shitty employers. When the “evil Nazis” introduced strictly enforced higher employment standards and worker councils, the communists who had infiltrated the unions, were converted, because they had direct access to the boss, and better working conditions to boot.
    The primary reason for abortion was economic (and is still prominent), until extreme promiscuity took hold. If one income would support a decent living standard for families, there would be far fewer abortions. If one parent was still at home instead of working, the politicized agenda at schools, including sexual “education” (indoctrination) would be countered by the parent, and likely lead to more long term stable relationships.
    If everyone was working and had a decent living standard, there would be less “welfare state”.

    Americans really do not have a clue when it comes to political ideologies. You don’t get “free stuff” with communism, because every able bodied person will be working. Participation, not cost efficiency was the goal. If you don’t, you become a social pariah, likely have benefits cut off, and be sent for “re-education”. By the way, there are no taxes in Marxist/communist economies.
    Similarly, the original concept (before globalist mass migration) in the countries routinely dubbed “socialist” by the US, is that the benefits were temporary. People were expected to work, and meaningful employment is a health factor. That is why disability plans support graduated return to work programs. The social interaction and work promote faster recovery, and decrease dependence.

    There is no perfect political system, and this article highlights the problems with most “Western liberal democracies”. There are one or two dominant parties that stand for virtually everything, but in reality, nothing. They are political systems driven by money. Picking your charity is part of that political system.

As for most so-called Christians in Murika, they bow their knee to the Judeo-Christ – just another skin-suit for the Talmudists’ god Moloch and mostest important country on earth (muh Israel).

    I reserve the right to decide for myself where I stand on every issue, regardless of what Jews support or don’t. I deplore the malevolent influence of Globo-Shlomo while still acting, not reacting. Jews can think with their genes and Talmud; free people think with their minds and hearts, even if it means sometimes being in accidental alliance with Jews.

    Trump’s Right Wing Takeover of LGBT Agenda

    “Donald Trump despite his image as the standard bearer for some sort of right wing or alt-right wing Conservative movement has boldly come out of the closet to initiate a “global effort to end (the) criminalization of homosexuality.” On the surface, this move looks like some sort of compromise to win a second term in office, but this could actually lead to a massive ideological victory for Conservatives across America including “The Donald” himself. Whether this victory is good for America or not is another issue entirely.”

    “Although, it is impossible to prove someone’s personal motivations beyond a reasonable doubt, the easiest argument as to why Trump has made this seemingly 180 degree turn in regards to homosexuality is simple self-preservation as a politician. A few years ago, Trump was riding waves of popularity offering to “Make America Great Again” if given the Oval Office. Now, many Americans are seeing that Trump is “Trying to Make America Great Again, with Many Failures, Compromises and Baffling Flip-Flops”.

    This comment perfectly exemplifies why the right lost: they demand rigid ideological consistency to bizarre (often arbitrary) dogmas, even if it hurts their own side. They think that makes them refined intellectuals when it really just makes them born losers. I support these things – some of them – because they help my demographic. I’ll modify my stance on those issues as they relate to my group’s benefit. I’ll promote them for my enemies if they hurt my enemies (examples: abortion and immigration) while simultaneously opposing them for my own group if they hurt my group’s interests; that’s exactly what the Jews do on issues such as mass immigration for the United States versus restricted immigration for Israel. There is nothing inconsistent with this. Indeed, it seems to be the winning strategy as the Jews have shown. I’m not a big fan of just doing the opposite of what the other guy is doing. That is a recipe for failure.

    “Separation is the way forward.”

    It is. There is no other solution at this point. You aren’t voting your way out of this situation in the current system. It’s good to see that at least one prominent DR member seems to be coming around on this. In the aftermath of Trump’s 2020 election loss to a Leftist extremist, I expect this sentiment to pick up. I hope it does. I want out.

    It’s uncomfortable for a non-radical, conservative, law abiding person, but Eric Striker’s probably right.

    Looking for parallels, there’s pre 1936 Spain. Bolshevik radicals for years dominated the weak socialist Republican government. They burnt down church buildings, attacked property, ran murderous militias and had a leftist press/media continually cheering them along.

    The traditional Spanish middle class for the longest time tried the “Benedict Option”, trying to not attract attention, keeping away from the streets, wearing worker’s clothing etc. but it just got worse, culminating in the abduction and murder of leading traditionalist politician Calvo-Sotelo.

    At this point Franco led an army revolt and the radical left had a Civil War on their hands. Which greatly surprised them. They weren’t ready for it – naturally assuming that they were in charge.

  19. Rod Dreher is the incarnation of everything wrong with the official Right and its coterie of simple-minded chattering propagandists.

    As such, it is not surprising to find that his journalistic wretchings are really not concerned with their purported subjects, but rather are the exquisite offerings unto the altar of himself. Everything Dreher writes is ultimately about him. He is merely the inverse, the negative image of the Leftist shills whose nearly inchoate fits of outrage over every trifling matter. Worse, really, because at least those Leftists are actually motivated by sincere belief and commitment to their pet causes, no matter how plainly self-destructive they may be. “Conservative” babbling heads like Dreher and his ilk, on the other hand, cleverly enshroud their cynicism with the noise of their punditry. Truly the only things these soulless husks genuinely care about is collecting a check and furthering their own careers. These pet “Conservatives”—anointed and deemed acceptable by the very cultural gatekeepers who seek their eradication—care only about spewing their vapid “think pieces” onto their social media accounts, exulting in the reverberant din of their own screeching. They are untethered wholly from any semblance of inner purpose—much less “morality” or “God”; guided only by self-interest, lucre, perhaps the promise of an eventual cozy job at some think-tank or lobbying firm, maybe a book deal or two. It matters not to them whether they proselytize on behalf of Chick-Fil-A, compulsory sodomy, or popularizing cannibalism—these shills, despite whatever rhetoric to the contrary, believe in nothing else other than getting paid and tearing off as sweet a hunk of life as they can, and are happy and willing to tread underfoot any ideals, morals, or peoples in pursuit thereof.

    That is one of the crucial reasons why nothing will ever change; why the “Right” will keep on losing. Our opponents believe in something, however vile it may be. Our representatives in government and the media, on the other hand, believe in nothing but their own interests. Even Dreher’s supposed Christianity is merely a prop to beguile the page clicks and likes from his sundry followers. With people like that as our “friends”, who needs enemies?

    This is a reasonable idea, especially for a ‘free society’. But modern courts won’t allow it and our attitude-shaping ‘free press’ will denounce it. Discrimination! White supremacy!

    America’s progressive juggernaut wants European-derived peoples divided, made ‘tolerant’, and free of any racial identity that smacks of white cohesion or white racial solidarity. That’s threatening!

    For white Americans, forced ‘integration’ is our future. Just turn on the television if you care to see what lies ahead.

    Jews and other privileged minorities, of course, my openly segregate themselves, their communities, and even enjoy preferential treatment as they facedown the evils of white reaction.

    That’s the dominant Narrative. The magic is working.

    The enemies of traditional America have the will, the organization, and the animating hatred to impose their vision (and double-standards) on a back-peddling and guilt-ridden white majority. Yes, we are in retreat.

    “That’s impossible in the most free and greatest country on earth” right?

  23. @Bill H

    Shrewd analysis.

    Striker knocks the conservatives for not donating enough to balance the liberals, but is this even possible? The “left” seems to include the financial elite and has for many years. The old WASP elite was already somewhat liberal but the new Jewish elite is far left on social issues. In fact, many of the leading GOP donors don’t mind telling interviewers about their liberal views.

    When is a Republican commentator going to say something like, “How can Marco Rubio be expected to oppose gay marriage when his leading donor pours millions into gay causes?” That is simply not a question you will hear asked by either side, which is why it seems reasonable to speak of ‘controlled opposition.’

    The right should prioritize demonstrating the fakeness of GOP conservatism. For this purpose, “litmus test” issues and roll-call votes are key. It is crucial not to let politicians get away with talking conservative and then voting liberal or doing nothing.

    Back in the 90s there was an upsurge of conservatism. Bob Dole, the Republican Senate leader who spearheaded the effort to quash the right, was fond of saying “just don’t have the votes” to which the correct response was, “take a vote anyway. We need to see who’s with us and who isn’t.” If a roll-call vote is taken, politicians hoping to serve the donors and frustrate the voters are forced into a no-win situation.

  27. A ‘corporation’ is a creature of the state, requiring state permission to form and operate. As such, it should be illegal for a corporation to spend funds on absolutely anything not directly connected with its operations and profitability for the share holders. It should be illegal for a corporation to gift anything to anyone.

    The share holders can give their funds to whomever they chose. The corporation they may be a part of should not be able to spend a dime on charity or social issues.

    The problem stems from corporate taxation. Since taxation without representation is tyranny, a corp is allowed to lobby as, and begins to look like, a person. Once a corp was viewed as a person, no further restrictions could be placed on its actions.

    The solution is to stop all corp taxation, as it just adds taxes paid to the cost of their goods or services on offer. Corporations don’t pay taxes, they collect them and hide the theft by gov’t within the cost of their products and is why gov’t likes that arrangement. Once they stop paying taxes, they stop being able to lobby, give campaign contributions, etc and become unable to influence legislation as the corporate entity.

    Nietzsche said the chief motivation of leftists is vengeance. Self-destructive impulses are redirected toward collectively annihilating any society holding a mirror to their inadequacies. Sodomites are naturally all on board, and why wouldn’t they be when they eventually must use drugs before ingesting human shit in order to experience sex—that is, if their own professional investigations of homosexual health practices are to be believed. This grotesque behavior is what woke capitalism values more than the innocent children it now ritualistically sodomizes. It amazes me how men who engage in such abominations of filth are at the same time as fastidious in everything else as the fastidiously domineering mother who inadvertently stunted their male development, leaving them also as bitchy as gossipy teenage girls.

    I believe the only reason we still have some freedom of speech left is that its expression on the Internet proves its impotency in the public arena. Where it matters, the Jews own the msm and so the real public forum that controls the shaping of most Americans’ attitudes and outcome of elections. Add to that, as one commenter noted, that these new voting machines are now rigged in key cities to the point hackers can play a game of chess on them, and voting becomes a self abuse substitute for acting like a man. As Spengler pointed out, we must be men for the times we’re living in and not some other like yesterday’s preppies from Conservatism Inc who, like that feckless J. Alfred Prufrock, are going down and out because they dared not upset the Jews who turned their Western Civilization into a sick joke.

    The left knows communism and socialism have failed everywhere tried, so arguing along those lines as Conservatism Inc does (to excuse its cowardice) is less than meaningless since it emboldens the homicidal rage we see everywhere on the left. Even though most on the left are individually impotent losers or the skinny college girls of Antifa, they enjoy the support of uniformed thugs working for metro police and so walk all over the right as entertainment and sign of the grinning mockery America’s elites have for Conservatism Inc’s impotence.

    A century before Nietzsche, Samuel Johnson identified this vicious sort of leftist impulse as arising in fear and noted the chief trait of such cowards is cruelty. A century ago the Russians said it couldn’t happen here, and some sixty-plus million Christians were tortured and then killed for pleasure by the Bolsheviks. The Black Book of Communism—it could just as accurately be called the Black Book of Leftism—gets into the details of the cruelty these cowards are capable of, such as skinning children before their parents’ eyes. As for Dreher and the rest of Cuckservatism Inc, Johnson had a word to say about their type, too, which is that they have that caution in dealing with the Jews that cowards borrow from fear and attribute to principle. Fox News does its part assuring us the answer to the Dems’ homicidally anti-white POC agenda that any idiot can see is stage managed by the Jews is more of the rigged voting referred to as democracy.

    Christians only seem to fight this hard with the abortion issue, where pro-life advocates argue that babies are being systematically murdered.

    Not any more, they don’t. The anti-abortion protest movement, led by Operation Rescue, was completely shut down in the mid-1990s when Jewish Congressman Chuck Schumer authored legislation enabling the protesters to be sued into bankruptcy and to have their assets and homes seized.

    White Christians do no fight back because Jewish-controlled FedGov will utterly destroy them and their families. Remember what happened to Randy Weaver and to the Branch Davidians at Waco. Eric Rudolph got tossed into the deepest hole the Feds have. He will never see the light of day again for attacking the baby murderers.

    FedGov is a Satanic cabal whose purpose is to normalize abortion, sodomy and miscegenation. It will crucify anyone who dares to oppose it.

    So, now that they have turned their back on us…………….F**k ’em. I won’t eat there anymore. They can change their name to Sod-Fil-A for all I care. I hope their business tanks and they have to close locations. Their store layout was awful anyway – it’s expressly designed for drive-thru patrons – you have to cross a race-track to actually walk in to the restaurant and order a meal.

    The pattern since the French Revolution is that the Left does whatever it takes to eliminate the correct moral order of a society. Then it gets enough control that it can begin to murder the religious leaders and the traditionalists. At that point a leader stands up to organize the Right.

    The Right can win, like with Franco and Salazar, to be vilified by later generations. It can win, then go too far and lose, like Hitler and Mussolini. It can fail to react, as in Russia.

    I suspect that in the USA the Right will rise up with talk radio and lukewarm Republicans and then the Left will roll over them. The wealthy Right will go live in Portugal and the rest of us will be slaves of the winners.

  38. Article is too complex. The problem is simpler.
    1. You are not organized, you are atomized and you participate in your own atomization – every utterance of Ayn Rand, every ignorant reference to Adam Smith, every claim to understanding capitalism while your adversaries run economic circles around you, and it never occurs to you that maybe you should put aside your “knowledge” and study to see what the adversaries know, that you obviously don’t – all of this contributes another inch to your political and economic atomization
    2. You will not build walls – or you are distracted by the wrong wall, the fabled one on the southern border … when this should be your first step: to build communities, you must build walls, the right kind of walls, and there are many different kinds of walls – the best walls are invisible … your adversaries know this and that’s why they want you focused on the southern border
    3. You will not acknowledge that the adversaries have at least one thing right about you: you will not vote in your own economic self interest – you sincerely believe that you vote on the side of billionaires, and that they care about you and that your interests are the same as their interests, about all of this you are correct about 1 of 3
    4. Rather than build your walls and focus on your communities … you just, can’t, stop, talking and thinking and obsessing about another team, about what it’s doing, its progress, organization, plots, designs … you are a H.S. football team that is obsessed with its mythical arch-rival … on the other side of the Mississippi. On account of this obsession you never practice, you never train, you never equip, you never scrimmage; you obsess and obsess and obsess about this mythical, distant team – when questioned: “why don’t you just work on yourself?” – your answer is on the ready: “the other team doesn’t let us”

    1. Drop the hubris and start learning, 2. Build walls – ignore Trump, ignore Mexico – get working, build walls – study the art of building invisible walls and get on it, 3. Derive an economic model and use 1 and 2 to organize and start voting for it, or outright creating it, 4. forget your mythical adversary or for the love of all things holy just take a 10 year moratorium on all mention of it and focus on building yourselves

  48. Typo note:

    Dreher is right to [be] perplexed.

    [4th paragraph]

    The problem ultimately stems from the pride of every even-tempered conservative: a lack of an offense-oriented moral zeal.

    Right-wingers assume society, economics and culture are governed by agents engaging in their immediate self-interest.

    They also tend to view most issues as practical problems to be solved, rather than the typical shitlib/ anti-white frame of a winner-take-all apocalyptic Last Battle, that merits a moral crusade to crush the evil enemy. As you point out here:

    The power of the left is framing every issue, big or small, as life or death. This triggers solidarity and altruism, which translates into collective power, which then changes the world.

    It triggers solidarity and altruism, but it also triggers self-righteous anger — which carries over to causes where shitlibs are clearly acting in their own self-interest. Claimed “altruism” seems to function quite well as a uniting/ motivating force, even when the course of action being promoted “just happens” to serve the interest of those promoting it.

    Take disgraced former head spook/ ex-Communist John Brennan, who spent his career in a field that is morally ambiguous at the best of times, and now works as a narrative promoter at MSNBC — a man notorious not only for his raging, hate-filled attempts to promote the long-debunked Russia conspiracy theory, but also well-known for hacking into Senate computers and perjuring himself before the Senate in a failed attempt to conceal that crime. He also perjured himself before the House multiple times. This is a man who spent years compiling lists of drone targets, yet unashamedly claimed that no civilians were ever killed by drones.

    Yet this deeply cynical, remarkably dishonest individual is easily able to adopt the stance of an absolutely virtuous (albeit remarkably judgmental) clergyman calling down fire, brimstone, and the wrath of God on the innocent targets of his boundless hatred and vitriolic rage. To all appearances, he truly believes that his need to slake his unlimited thirst for power is automatically “good,” and that anyone who stands in his way is automatically “evil.”

    This insistence on framing every issue in black and white, quasi-“moral” terms means that shitlibs and anti-whites conceptualize the other side as “evil,” motivated solely by “hatred.” OK, occasionally they’ll grant the possibility of ignorance. But that’s it. Different interests, giving different relative weights to different considerations in assessing a complex issue, taking unintended consequences/ practical considerations into account… nope. Not possible. This insistence on viewing the other side as “evil haters” means that anti-whites not only don’t understand the positions taken by non-self-hating whites… they’re incapable of doing so. To them, any degree of empathy, any attempt to view the issue from the other side’s standpoint, means becoming “evil” yourself.

    The religious frenzy left-liberals approach every single issue is to be mirrored, not mocked.

    Their approach is to be mirrored; their sacral objects must be mocked.

    I always enjoy your comments Mark. Here and at TOO as well.

    The magic is working.

    True. But this is an oxymoron. Magic doesn’t really work. It only SEEMS to work. That’s why it’s called magic. It’s not real. And nothing about Jewish Supremacy Inc. works.

    Or, from another perspective, it all works, but like a progressive disease.

    I remain convinced that what we’re witnessing is what I’ve come to refer to as

    The Pyrrhic Victory of JSI.

    Why? Because their rise to power has been in direct proportion to the collapse of the social institutions that power controls.

    Here’s an example from the article, which, I also have to disagree, is not a good article, because it’s chock-o-block full of paralogisms (unconscious violations of one’s own logic). Like this gem,

    The power of the left is framing every issue, big or small, as life or death. This triggers solidarity and altruism, which translates into collective power, which then changes the world.

    This is like saying that blacks changed their neighborhoods by rioting.

    Well, from one perspective they did. But the change was not positive.

    The point is, they are not winning or, that they are but their victory is, as I said, Pyrrhic.

    No. Conservatives are losing. And they thoroughly deserve to. Because they are clinging to beliefs that they still think are truths, and have long since outlived their usefulness. All because they lack the courage, honesty and intelligence to admit this and transcend what is essentially an 18th century Enlightenment ideology, so they can move into a larger freedom.

    Of course, to do that they would also have to be a group in form. Otherwise the larger group will crush the smaller, which, obviously, is what is happening.

    But, again, that doesn’t mean JSI, The Left, etc. are winning anything that will last. It can’t. It won’t. And it isn’t.

    Just look at all of the major cities in the USA, which they completely control.

    All they have at this point are crumbling institutions run by professional dumb people suffering from delusional self-confidence (Dunning-Kruger Effect), fake money, propaganda and censorship.

    All being held together by the crazy glue of anti-White hatred.

    Whoever heard of sustaining a civlization based on those ingredients? Let alone the most complex and unpredictable civilization in the history of the world.

    Lastly, further evidence of a Pyrrhic Victory is found in the fact that, now that they’ve sucked all of the blood out of the USA, they’re engaged in a Fire Sale, where everything must go, and with only one buyer – China.

    And China doesn’t strike one as being all that into power sharing.

    the majority, who have in reality no say, and are led by their noses by the forces behind the curtain of the theater stage, who sit somewhere in the theater’s lodge.

    That’s the most concise description of self-proclaimed “democracies”, American and European, I’ve ever read.

    Socialism, as practiced in the USSR, provided free healthcare and education at all levels for all, very cheap housing and utilities, ridiculously cheap childcare, etc. Staples like milk and bread were also very cheap. Like all egalitarian systems, it was undoubtedly a loser-oriented society. People willing to work hard and having skills were at a disadvantage, because those who did as little as possible and had no skills whatsoever got all these freebies, as well.

    However, the US society does not have much to write home about, either. The US is certainly not socialist, as in the US nobody would even spit in your face for free. Higher education, healthcare, and housing are grossly overpriced. Much of healthcare costs we pay go to pure parasites: insurance companies and malpractice lawyers. Today the US is an oligarchy (just like today’s Russia, BTW). The social structure is designed to give the oligarchs as much as possible, cheating the grunts doing the work out of decent pay. Those grunts are cheated some more by the political system, which gives them an illusion of participation via elections, where in most cases you have a choice between shit and even bigger shit. You are absolutely free to decide which shit is bigger: Deep State and oligarchs controlling it win either way.

    In terms of freedom of speech and plurality of opinions in the media, even the USSR beats today’s Western societies hands down. The kind of uniformity of “opinions” allowed in the MSM today in the US and Europe was only achieved in the USSR under Stalin (and in Germany under Hitler).

    So, there is no heaven on Earth, neither social structure has the right to claim superiority. Maybe human societies will evolve into something more palatable in the future. Or maybe we all perish in WWIII.

We moved away, but while having dinner back at our club we ran into the woman and her husband having dinner with some Jewish guests. I read the woman’s face when she saw my wife, but before I could corral her my wife naively asked the woman if she was still running the pro-life group. The woman reacted like my wife had just accused her of something evil, replied she had no idea what my wife could possibly be talking about, then abruptly made it clear the conversation was over. I was shocked myself at the vehemence with which this woman denied everything she once claimed was a matter of life and death.

    Based on my personal experience with both systems, I see the differences somewhat differently.

    In socialism, something is guaranteed for all, for free or very cheaply, so that it’s affordable even for the lowest paid people. The difference between the poorest and the richest (even the General Secretary of the Communist Party) is smaller than 10-20-fold.

    In capitalism, nothing is free. If you don’t have money to pay for something you need (like elementary dental care), it’s your problem. The difference between the poorest and the richest (e.g., oligarchs) is huge, hundreds- to thousands-fold.

    Based on this, there is no socialism in America. It’s more like the law of the jungle.

    Mind you, personally I can’t complain. My brains and skills placed me in the top 3% of earners in the US. I just don’t like seeing homeless or dirt-poor people, which you can’t avoid it in the US cities.

    BTW, if you want history, the first communist on record was Jesus (remember, “I’ll say it again—it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!” Matthew 19:24). He was a Jew, too.

If current trend holds, Russia is on track to surpassing the most affluent European countries in 15-20 years, and the current US levels in 25-30 years (the US is likely to go bust long before that; it is anybody’s guess whether the EU folds even earlier).

    The GOP always throws the fight.

    Useless cucks.

    Like Dreher

    All you need to know about the American Cuckservative is that they fired Phil Giraldi for pointing out that Jews are behind the Eternal Wars.

    Pretending that the AC can be relevant after that, is delusional.

    When ruminating over the Eternal Wars, or the Culture Wars, and being unwilling to name the Jew, is a dead giveaway that the speaker is a paid whore and zio-shill. IOW, part of the problem.

    No matter how flowery their prose, or blustery their angst.

    The existential question of our time, is.. will the West allow Jewish supremacists to blend it into oblivion. Dreher and the Cuckservatives are the enemy. Just as the GOP/Conservative Inc, are the most dangerous enemy.

    In fact they’re even far, far more insidious and pernicious than the progressive, liberal armies of ‘wokes’, because at least the left are motivated by a passionate and staunch hatred of all things White, Western man, and conduct themselves accordingly. Whereas rats like Dreher, (and Mitt and Marco, et al), pretend to be on our side, as they slide the shiv in your backs at the most opportune moment. George Will is our problem, not George Soros.

    As for the chicken peddlers, hopefully their brand and profits will wane, for this betrayal of their (now rotted) moral conscience.

    The US has “been in decline since the 1950s”? I think you missed the 1960s through 1990s when the US grew quite vigorously, with a few backslides. Since the G W Bush years there has been stagnation, at least for the poor and middle classes, and that should be addressed.

    In the late 1940s a rational person might have predicted unending economic depression, because that was what was known since 1929. Things change and will continue to change. America might do relatively well in coming decades. It remains a great and wealthy nation. Ten years of strong growth could advance the fortunes of all and ameliorate the ball and chain of debt.

    A lot of this impression is simply cultural differences. In that Russians are no different from most Europeans. In fact, French and Spanish people tend to have gloomier outlook that Russians.

    Let me give you a few examples. When you ask an American how s/he is doing, normal answer is “Great!” In exact same situation, meaning exactly the same thing a Russian would say “Not bad”, or “OK”. Sounds different, but it’s purely cultural. Or another example: in the US, when you meet someone, a smile on your face means nothing whatsoever, whereas its absence means something. In Russia in this situation the absence of a smile means nothing, whereas a smile means something. Russians in the US simply adjust to local cultural standards, same as Americans living in Russia (there are a few thousand of them).

Plus in the modern world and with how the radical left operates, it would be impossible to create pure Christian communities, without infiltration, not too mention the wrath of the leftist state.

    I agree about the Spanish being rather grim and gloomy, at least those I have known. It surprised me because Italians (fellow Latins) aren’t like that. Latin Americans aren’t like that.

    In the 1970s I used to play chess with Russians immigrants in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, NY. The Russians were mystified that Americans always seemed to want to talk about weather. One polite fellow, at a chess table, recited to me the temperature range for the day, the atmospheric pressure, relative humidity, etc. When our game ended and he left a piece of paper fell out of his pocket. I picked it up and it was a torn piece of a newspaper with all the weather data which he had memorized. He just wanted to make American English conversation and he assumed any American would want to hear about the latest weather stats.

    By the way, Russians were good chess players. The seedy park benches had more organized chess competitions than the chess club I belonged to in Washington DC. If one wanted to up his game it was worth a weekly bus ride to Brighton Beach where the Russian competition was stronger.

    I think you’re being too kind with the ‘feckless’ characterization.

    If I were to very carefully choose my words to describe TAC, I would say that what they are.. is not feckless, or misguided or mistaken, but rather rotten.

    Consider, for instance the GOP. The problem with the GOP is not fecklessness or feebleness, but a black rot of their souls. What ails Dick Cheney, is not ineptitude, but perfidy.

    The reason Conservative Inc., is the biggest enemy of conservative Americans, isn’t their stupidity, but rather their eagerness to sell out their fellows for a few shekels more. [see Ryan, Paul, et al]

    The problem with TAC, is their repulsive venality. Their eager willingness to dance with the devil, if he pay$ a little more.

    It’s the difference between William Buckley, vs. Joe Sobran. Buckely’s soul rotted from the inside out, and he sold out to the enemy so he could preen on ((TV)). Sobran kept his soul intact, and died an honorable man.

    Unz Review = Ron Paul

    TAC = Paul Ryan

    The critical component of our existential struggle is character.

    Glib smarts are a dime a dozen. Most of the GOP rats in congress can formulate a sentence, but few if any can articulate the looming and dire threat to our republic, because they’re part and party to that very threat. And they all know it.

    All those whores and rats know who’s behind the Eternal Wars. I’m sure Daniel Larison knows who’s behind the Eternal Wars, just as he knows who’s behind the tech monopolies defenestration of all conservative voices from their platforms. Just as they all know who’s behind the cultural and spiritual sewage being force-injected into our youth by Hollywood and Madison Ave.

    Even more critically, they all know who owns and controls the Federal Reserve Bank.

    But because they’re rotten to the core, with their snouts swilling in the $lop trough, they carefully ignore the elephant in the living room.

    We don’t need articulate and eloquent prose to guide our way out of the looming abyss.

    What we need is iron character, and steely words of truth. And exactly the very kind of truth that all these rats all carefully avoid.

    That is why few voices are more salient and of critical importance than heroic truth-tellers like Phil Giraldi. I wouldn’t give a plug nickel for TAC telling me more flowery lies about the folly of our wars, without naming who are behind it all.

    Why is everything conservative about America dying? Just answer that one question, TAC!

    you’d get crickets.

    Because the truth to that question is; Because Woodrow Wilson betrayed America and handed the keys to the US Treasury over to the world’s most determined Jewish supremacists, that have since used that power to-

    • cause the Great Depression

    • involve America in catastrophic wars in Europe.

    • And today have exploited that counterfeiting machine to consolidate all the levers of power in our nation into their tribal supremacist hands, and are now the near undisputed masters of our society and destiny. That they harbor an ancient antipathy for our people and our way of life, is why everything conservative about America is dying. Because it’s being systematically and deliberately crushed under a Jewish supremacist boot.

    You see how easy that was?!

    Tell you what, after Russia, it was a shock to me to find that Americans only discuss “neutral” subjects: the weather, their kids, and food in different restaurants. It is a rule of polite American conversation that you don’t discuss things where disagreements are likely: politics, international affairs, religion, etc. It is exactly opposite in Russian culture. A person discussing the weather or food in restaurants would be seen as a moron not worth talking to.

    A lot of Russians are good at chess (have to confess – that does not include me). Russia probably still has more grand masters and champions in chess than any other country. It’s also in the culture: either you drink and play domino, or you don’t drink and play something that involves your brains, like chess.

    Striker’s right in the mid-long term sense about the need for collective action to fight back, but I’m betting my own lifestyle that in the short-mid term that Dreher’s only half-wrong with his “Benedict Option.”

    Dissidents fighting Globoshlomo don’t yet have the numbers, organization or institutional support needed to mobilize effective collective action. In the here-and-now, the tasks are to:

    1) raise Noticing levels and get our message out – litmus-test those who are political ballast from true dissidents who’re capable of a revolutionary mindset; and

    2) to network those dissidents into our own semi-covert micro-infrastructures and proto-institutions that parallel those the System can presently deny us – family support, employment, schooling, banking, insurance and healthcare, to name a few.

    Dreher’s “Benedict Option” obviously lends itself to that second phase. But Striker’s not wrong. We have to use this strategy as a tactical regrouping, not a retreat.

    Dissidents from Irishmen to Islamists have always used times of government crackdowns and relative disarray in their movements to lower their profile, blend into the masses, vet for infiltrators and shift tactics while awaiting a more advantageous turn of events.

    Totally correct. The converse of your thesis is that the American and South American (Simon Bolivar) revolutionaries were dedicated, hard core, and fought on unconditional surrender, there is no substitute for victory, status. “Our” side has none of this, “their” side does.

    I believe that modern man became more and more “Other Directed” rather than “Inner Directed” as urbanity progressed from the Industrial Revolution on. On such a spectrum, we see modern Euro Caucasians as extremely malleable and mutable in their comportment and belief systems. Like machines, more and more people are conforming to the memes and narratives from the centers and arbiters of everything. Heritage, family, tradition, region mean nothing is today’s collectivized milieu.

    I know this sounds very generalized, but from a longer term perspective of 70 years, and constant travel to all corners of the World, I feel I am accurate enough. The big diminisher of individuality and Individuation (C. G. Jung) was and is television.

    Most Leftists are Borg-like, collective minded, superficial thinkers for whom ideology is a cover and represser for inquiry and objectivity and data. Those are the sincere dupes with inadequate personality. The other group are psychopathic destroyers, mental defects, with organic brain “wiring” and metabolic abnormalities.

    You are correct that nothing will change, but that is in the present context of living among near zombies and remote controlled bots. The only salvation is to secede with like minded people and form homogenous communities that are clearly defined and immutable, based on specific factors, ideals, ideas.

    BTW, your prognostications regarding Chile were correct. My Brazilian wife and her family realize the threat to their existence in Brazil now, more than ever.

    I place more faith on results and understanding using analogous and parallel reasoning-much like the Chinese and advanced Asians do-than abstract arguments. In this case, Paleo-Conservatives, Pragmatists (defined simply as what works), need a new deck of cards from which to play. The old and present deck, no matter how shuffled will yield nothing satisfactory. I am also very familiar with large machines and mechanical systems. There is a point where modification or revision will not work out with the present unit. Thereafter, a whole new design and build is the only solution.

    America during the whole Cold War era was the quality manufacturer of choice for the entire free world. (Yes, I know automobiles were somewhat an exception but the mass market is lots harder to fill with excellent quality than a small set of Porsche, BMW, and Mercedes drivers.) We manufactured just about everything that the country needed, with excess for buyers throughout the free world and a few in the East Bloc who were some of those EXTRA-EQUAL people.

    It’s the fact that he’s in prison, sort of proves he’s not corrupt. I mean the guy had to hide out in an Embassy. If that doesn’t tell you he’s a good guy, then what does?

    It’s like Snowden, the fact that he has to hide in Russia, is the evidence we have that he’s for real.

    Or, just consider him as a symbol. Right now, the narrative is that he published a video of American war crimes, and for that, the fiend has him in its sights. So if we’re supposed to accept the narrative, he’s being punished for publishing evidence of a war crime.

    Just in that context alone, all the world’s journalists should be up in arms that this brave man had the balls to take on the fiend, and that he’s now being persecuted for telling the truth.

    If he’s an operative, then why is he languishing in prison?

    How do you know he actually is? How do you know the guy they present you is Assange?
    It all looks so staged to me, like made for TV cameras, a soap opera drama.

    Apart from that, if he is in prison, there are many reasons, I suspect certain factions blackmail each other, ie the guys behind Assange have something the others don’t want to come out. This doesn’t mean, he has something useful for the public, rather than dirty laundry, you know, internal matters the public will never know about anyway.

    It’s like Snowden, the fact that he has to hide in Russia, is the evidence we have that he’s for real.

    Have you considered the possibility Russia keeps in “safe”(in fact in custody) in Russia for eg some US American guys?
    In my view, Snowden hasn’t rally revealed anything new. It has been known since the 1980ies, the US run “Echelon”.

    I am very skeptic with these two guys, and I think the guys behind them cleverly manipulate the public.

    If I theorize a bit loudly, it is all about wikileak’s announcement some years ago, they would have something on the secret “UFO” war in the southern hemisphere, which undoubtedly has been taking place for the last 70 or so years, where US and Russians for example cooperate since decades. This involves “national security” everywhere, and no, these “UFO” are not ET, but human made.

    You are a bad tactician, if you seriously think you have an advantage, if you wait for a massive army to invade you. There was no time for such “pearl harbor” moment, Barbarossa was delayed, it was supposed to start in August already, when the german military realized how massively armed the Soviets had been. They had no clue about the true dimensions of soviet armament. They suspected it is big, but not as massive as they’ve encountered.
    You can’t fend off 25000+ tanks, and a massive parachuting unit.
    No side had more parachutes than the Soviets, they had thousands, along with thousands of aircraft.

    The attack on Stalin’s amassed strike force was precisely to prevent this strike force to reach the Atlantic, ie Spain & Portugal, and having to fight to Soviets on German soil, ie central Europe.

    Britain was unwilling, the population pro war, there was nothing that could be done to win their sympathy. The BBC and media had carefully prepared the Brits for a second war. Britain wanted war, and Britain’s declared goal was the destruction of Germany.

    I disagree. And even if some of what he said was known in certain circles, he brought the wide-scale treason into public view.

    He made this man’s lies, a national infamy.

    I don’t have access to the behind the scenes truth of what’s going on. I can’t know if what we’re being told about Snowden or Assange (or UFOs for that matter), are true or not. But when divining what’s likely true, we look to all metrics to sort it out.

    I suspect Assange is wanted by the fiend, as an example to other journalists, (just as Ulfkotte and especially Hastings’ sensational assassination) were intended as warnings/examples to other potentially rogue journalists.

    But even if they’re not what they seem, it doesn’t change the narrative, that Assange is being persecuted for telling the truth. And as long as that’s the narrative, then any so-called journalist, like Shepard Smith, for instance, who speaks of attacks on the freedom of the press, without mentioning Assange, smacks of rank moral cowardice and hypocrisy.

    I’m fully aware of the reasons Germany moved against Russia when it did. I understand that my calling for a negotiated truce with Britain was a long shot, but, as I see it, the decision of the Brits to join Russia in the attack on their close cousins, the Germans, was fatal. It may not have been inevitable.

    I don’t know how you devise a “Pearl Harbor” moment without the convenient remoteness of Pearl Harbor and Hitler would never have done it. I would say that playing the victim in some way could have kept the Brits out of the war. The Russians were very good at falling back enough to cause their opponents to spend their energies. Was that possible for Germany?

    We have to agree to disagree.
    I think,these are either intel leaks, or illegally acquired information, eg hacked. This is what I think it is about. I do think, the task of the media is to portray Assange as a journalist, depending which media you listen to. The US media is rather hostile, RT very supportive. The truth is probably somewhere in between.
    It was almost surreal, when German political muppets want to offer him asylum, in US occupied Germany.
    Wikileaks also had some internal drama, they had a mole inside wikileaks.

    Imagine Assange has something that compromises US national security, this hasn’t necessarily to be something good to come out.

    A quite over the top example:

    Let’s assume he somehow has missile codes, or radar frequencies, a military secret, and all the rest of the reporting is a deflection from that to keep the public busy as usual, with nonsense.
    If I was US intel, I would want this guy, I would want to know who he works for, eg Russians, Israelis. and surely, the intel goes in lengths to contruct some charges in a vassal country to get their hands on him. I simply don’t buy this is all about some gunship tape from Iraq or so.
    Wikileaks released damaging stuff for Iran, Syria and a few other places. Cui bono? It served the warmongers.

    I give him the benefit of doubt, but I don’t think he is just an innocent little journalist.
    if you play with fire, you might burn yourself.
    Just saying, what if Assange is being built up as a hero, when in reality, he probably is not even close to be one, but eventually an enemy? Media can do that, they can make people believe almost anything, as you know.
    Just saying, I don’t pick a side in this, my gut feeling tells me something is not right with either Assange and Snowden.

    Regarding the Echelon program, it is public domain information since some time. Admittedly, usually only technically oriented people have known this.
    15-20 years ago, it was still dubbed a “conspiracy theory” and denied the program exists.

    Always truthful and accurate wiki…

    ECHELON, originally a secret government code name, is a surveillance program (signals intelligence/SIGINT collection and analysis network) operated by the United States with the aid of four other signatory states to the UKUSA Security Agreement:[1] Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, also known as the Five Eyes.[2][3][4]

    The ECHELON program was created in the late 1960s to monitor the military and diplomatic communications of the Soviet Union and its Eastern Bloc allies during the Cold War, and it was formally established in 1971.

    what I’ve often wondered is what does he have on 9/11.

    For certain, Snowden would have had access to the truth vis-a-vis 9/11, and no doubt that’s the thing they’re most concerned about. But what about Assange? What did he have on 9/11?

    You may be right, and Assange (and/or Snowden) may be controlled opposition, but if Assange is for real, I’m hoping there’s a ‘dead man’s switch, vis-a-vis 9/11, if he’s murdered.

    I simply don’t buy this is all about some gunship tape from Iraq or so.

    It was very damaging. Not just as a PR nightmare, but also for the boyz out there slaughtering Muslims. If our uniformed thugs have to fear their antics will end up on YouTube, they’re going to be more reluctant to ‘take the fight to the enemy’.

    I give him the benefit of doubt, but I don’t think he is just an innocent little journalist.
    if you play with fire, you might burn yourself.

    This is where we have to agree to disagree. If we give him the benefit of the doubt, and he’s sincere, then he was doing heroic work in exposing the war criminals. Look what he (apparently) did by exposing Hillary’s corruption! That was of incalculable benefit to humanity in general, and America (and Syria and Russia and too many other nations to count) in particular.

    Just for exposing the DNC rot, he should have gotten the Pulitzer Prize, IMHO.

    Just saying, what if Assange is being built up as a hero, when in reality, he probably is not even close to be one, but eventually an enemy? Media can do that, they can make people believe almost anything, as you know.

    Well, perhaps. But I still tend to feel we can get a tiny handle on things by reading between the lines.

    9/11 was a false flag attack, intended as the pretext for Eternal War, all laid out by the PNAC.

    Putin is a (generally honorable) Russian nationalist, and even the world’s closest thing to a statesman.

    Bolivia, Russia, Venezuela, Iran, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and many other nations are suffering for thumbing their nose to the ‘fiend’ – as I call it- (Zion/MIC/CIA/Globohomo, etc…)

    Our media is fully in the hands of Jewish supremacists who hate – viscerally and existentially- the people of the West- with the burning rancor of a thousand exploding suns.

    Ditto our universities and the Fed/ECB-EU, federal courts and assorted cultural institutions. Not to mention the governments of France, England, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Canada, and many, many others.

    Jewish supremacists thrive on wars fought by and against Gentiles.

    That is a short litany of things I feel I have glimmered correctly by reading between the lines. Yes, they’re able to fool me now and then, but as for the big picture, not so much.

    As for Echelon, yes, but that’s ancient history. Now they have ‘smart’ microphones next to people’s beds, and in hotel rooms and airplanes and everywhere we go. We even carry them with us, for convenience. (I have a flip phone, but I also have a smart phone – kept in the microwave when not being used for work to send photos, etc..).

    So our total surveillance is a quantum leap from where is was only a few years ago. And now they use AI algorithms to not only predict our behavior, but to manipulate it to their own (never benign) designs as well.

    I like to read your comments, they show clear concern for your country.
    However, some of it is too US circus specific, in the sense that from outside of the US, it is seen differently, that is, the US is a utterly corrupt mess. 911, yeah, but from my pov, it is not the ultimate weapon, it is a symptom, the cause is “holocaust” narrative, which they use to reason any new war they wage. “Never again! We have a responsibility to protect”

    As for Echelon, yes, but that’s ancient history. Now they have ‘smart’ microphones next to people’s beds, and in hotel rooms and airplanes and everywhere we go.

    This may appear so, but it is really nothing new, for example, Stasi simply deployed man power to achieve the same, walls had ears, microphones installed etc, and surveillance of a target was also 100%.
    They just upgraded tech to use less manpower.
    Stasi would be envious given the possibilities now, they look amateurish in comparison, and they were not amateurs, but feared.

    The only difference is, nowadays, people freely carry a tracking device around and tell the Stasi freely the most private stuff, so the modern Stasi does not have to break into your house and install surveillance. They also don’t have to deploy at least 5 spies for observation, people freely deliver the data.

    Well, it’s certainly seen as an utterly corrupt mess, even (perhaps especially) from the inside.

    And a threat to the planet. All the wars the ZUS has fought since 9/11, have all been based on lies.

    Millions have died or been maimed or orphaned or displaced.

    Yes, the Holocaust narrative has been used to bludgeon the Gentiles of the world (especially Germans), with a treacherous blood libel, and this fraud has been used as a pretext to genocide Muslims and Christians and steal their lands.

    But WWII was 70 years ago, and most of the people involved are all dead. Whereas the fiends responsible for 9/11, are alive and well, and scheming for more wars.

    This on Drudge right now:

    U.S. GENERAL WARNS OF IRAN ATTACK

    So I just wonder if 9/11 isn’t the achilles heel, with so many young people able to check it all out on the Internet. With the holocaust, the evidence is convoluted, but with 9/11, it’s glaringly obvious, to anyone with the slightest curiousity.

    And the exact same people who perpetrated the Holocaust fraud, are the exact same Jewish supremacists/Zionists who perpetrated 9/11, if only a generation or two removed.

    Eisenhower is long dead, and rotting in hell. But Cheney is still alive. Silverstein is still alive.

    the modern Stasi does not have to break into your house and install surveillance. They also don’t have to deploy at least 5 spies for observation, people freely deliver the data.

Whom Charles Lindbergh, among so many others, spoke out against.

    ((They)) won, Germany and Western civilization lost.

    Today, ground zero for the rot that is metastasizing all over the West, is right smack here in the good ol’ ZUS of A. (Especially ((NYC, Hollywood, Wall Street and DC))).

    I’ve been to Germany- Munich, for instance, a few years ago. And toured much of the country. Generally, it’s a Whitetopica, although that’s fast changing. But even as Turks and others are invading and squatting in alarming numbers, still, even with terrorist attacks, what Germany endures with its ((imposed)) diversity, is nothing like what we have here in the ZUS of A.

    What amazes me, that I read also on Unz the recommendation to vote, yet they all know money buys the presidency, but no one wants to admit it.

    There’s been an undercurrent in some circles that voting is a waste of time at best, and a de facto legitimization of the ((regime)) at least.

    I reject those undercurrents. And for proof, all I’ll offer is simply this:

    That’s all the argument for voting that I think I need. And it’s a very, very powerful argument, IMHO.

    yet they all know money buys the presidency, but no one wants to admit it.

    Yes, the system is endemically corrupt, and controlled and in the hands of very nefarious forces.

    But for all of that, most of those forces did not want Donald Trump to be potus. And yet, the American people rallied to their last pathetic gasp for a shred of hope for some possible future for their progeny, that doesn’t end up like Shannon Christian.

    When the demographic juggernaut accomplishes its inevitable fait accompli, and the ZUS is turned over to the Hillarys of the world, then if you think Germany has it bad now, wait until the ‘Woke’ crowd are firmly in power at the helm of the ‘world’s only superpower’. When that happens, the Weimar regime will seem like nostalgic time of moral rectitude, by comparison.

    I miss the US child who points out that the emperor is naked,

    Why not some non compliance?

    The problem with democracy, it is a tyranny, which effects unfortunately people, who don’t want it and just want to be left alone, who don’t participate in the self deception.

    Leon Trotsky — ‘You may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.’

    IOW, dropping out of the ‘system’, and refusing to vote, is not the solution to a nominally democratic society on the verge of madness. Unless a general madness, Eternal Wars, genocide, global catastrophe of human population explosions wiping out all natural flora and fauna and sending mankind reeling into an Orwellian dystopian hell on earth, is nothing to worry about.

Snowden is seen as a traitorous agent of the CIA sent to spy on the NSA — which, for all its prying into the lives of Americans, fell into the hands of patriots under Admiral Rogers — and help to undermine the rival agency. Assange, on the other hand, is to be welcomed as a hero by the Administration when he gets to the U.S. and will help bring Seth Rich’s murderers to justice.

    Well Gsjackson, I will have to respectfully dissent.

    For one, if Admiral Rodgers and his staff, were actual patriots, then the entire world would know about the cowardly, murderous treachery vis-a-vis the USS Liberty. And failing that, certainly 9/11.

    If anyone knows of the ((treason and rot)) in our body politic, it’s the head of the NSA. The men murdered and maimed aboard the Liberty, were none other than NSA personnel.

    How could a patriot serve, in good faith, a government that continues to cover up their heinous murders? And protect the cowardly Israeli scum who murdered those men, (or those three thousand Americans who died on 9/11?!)

    For a true patriot to serve this nation, knowing that the intelligence agencies are spying on Americans, and using that data to undermine American citizens’ Constitutional rights- he would have to go public, and tell the American people that our intelligence agencies have gone rogue, and that they’re using the powers entrusted to them by the American people, to betray those very same American people for their own nefarious and treasonous purposes.

If this is an accurate account of things — and I have no idea whether or not it is — then preventing Israel from understanding that they are in the cross hairs is an essential part of The Plan. The USS Liberty, 9/11, etc. are to be revealed when the chances of widespread acceptance are greater — as the story goes.

    Snowden did go from the CIA, which is a Zionist operation, to the NSA, a military operation, which means it is probably not as likely to be under Zio-control. He chose to rat out the latter and focus the public’s attention on it, not the utterly corrupted CIA.

    I’m certainly not defending NSA surveillance, just saying that some people believe it is now being turned back against the people who put it into place. True? Again, I don’t know, but I’d like to think it is. And while on the path of wishful thinking — and to an earlier point of yours — the story line has Trump torpedoing the Fed in his second term.

    Mr. Unz has intimated something similar, when he mentioned a friend of his, Major General William Odom, former director of the NSA, who “became known for his outspoken criticism of the Iraq War and warrantless wiretapping of American citizens”.

    – Its failed attempt at “logic” in claiming that, if some Overseas Israelis appear to support a particular social institution or practice that is potentially beneficial, then all goyim are somehow required to worship the Tribe.

    Let’s test this Levantine “logic” on an analogous model:

    – Hitler was a vegetarian

    – All vegetarians simply must support National Socialism

    Seems legit.

    Agreed. The issue was immigration, immigration, immigration.

    As we have failed on this, we can instead argue about the morality of abortion and whether fried chicken companies should donate to homosexuals or not from the gulag.

    Just cuz the owner’s Christian don’t mean fast food is good for you. I third the opinion that, apart from rare special occasions, you should always cook your own meals. Hell, fry your own chicken – it’s really not that hard to fry chicken or make a burger – and is always healthier, more nutritious, and tastier than fast food – plus less of your money goes to globohomo.

    Brain fried consumerist serfs are still lining up at the local chicky even after the pandering to the gaystapo and the hiring of a Sobama/Shrillary ballwasher.
    I almost feel bad for the mindless drones. (not really)
