It’s clear now that Joe Biden is not going to run in 2024. There is pretty much a zero percent chance of that. I mean, it’s technically possible. But it’s probably going to be Gavin Newsom, who is the single charismatic figure left in the party since they threw Nipples Cuomo under the bus for touching some woman’s hair.

Conversely, Donald Trump obviously is going to run. I’m not even against that, just so long as everyone understands that the fact that the election was stolen in 2020 and nothing happened means that there is zero chance they won’t just do it again.

But the spectacle itself could be fun, if the main topic is World War III.

Although it could possibly be that the US is so completely wrecked by 2024 that World War III is impossible – in which case it would also probably be possible for Trump to win the election, frankly. If the dollar collapses, the military collapses, the whole government is going to be a limping shell, and they’re just simply not going to have the ability to do all of these horrible things they’ve been doing. Lots of the top Jews and homos will flee to New Zealand or whatever.

The fact that Ivanka threw Trump under the bus implies that if he ever was able to get back in power, he’d behave in a significantly less Jewish manner.

I can’t predict the speed of the decline. But I’m generally a lot more hopeful than I was in 2020, because there is no longer any real chance that the Evil Empire can pull off a win or even last another decade.

Point being: if we’re still having a debate about whether or not we should do World War III, meaning that the dollar has not collapsed and caused the US military to collapse, Trump has zero chance. If the main debate is instead about, you know, not having electricity or food, hyperinflation, roving bands of negro youths slaughtering families, then Trump will probably be able to win, just because the machine won’t have the power anymore.

That’s what everyone needs to understand: if the empire fails, they’re just not going to have the ability to do to us all of these things they’re doing to us anymore. The whole empire is based on the global supremacy of the dollar, and if that goes – and China and Russia are still standing – the whole show is over. It will still be a nightmare, as we’re going to all be poor and have to deal with this multiculturalism nightmare in a country with no manufacturing base and where the young men are all a bunch of faggots with no skills. But at least it won’t feel hopeless like it does for people right now.

RT:

The lavish military aid provided to Kiev by Washington could result in the conflict in Ukraine turning into World War III, former US President Donald Trump has warned.

We have a war in Ukraine… and perhaps it’s going to lead to World War III because of the way we’re handling it,” Trump warned in a speech at a religious conservative conference in Nashville, Tennessee on Friday.

“We just gave \$40 billion on top of another \$16 billion. So, we’re in for \$56 billion,” he said regarding the aid packages the Biden administration has already approved for Ukraine amid the conflict with Russia.

“But when you look at Europe – and Germany, and France and all these other countries – they’ve given a tiny fraction, a tiny, tiny fraction of what we’re giving. We’re giving \$56 billion and they’re giving a few billion dollars. And they’re the ones who are affected much more so,” he said.

Trump once again blamed the conflict on President Joe Biden, who replaced him in the White House, insisting that “if I were president that would never have happened.”

“And I got to know Putin very well and we talked about it… he knew the consequences were going to be tremendous. He understood that and he would have never ever done it,” the former president insisted.

“If the election weren’t rigged and stolen, we wouldn’t have had any problems with Ukraine being attacked viciously,” he said.

Trump is right that Russia wouldn’t have invaded if he was president, but not because he threatened Putin. What is the threat against Putin here? The Biden Administration has followed through on every possible threat short of an actual nuclear war. So there wasn’t ever a threat.

The reason Putin wouldn’t have invaded is that Trump wouldn’t have been pushing for the Ukraine to join NATO and house nukes on the Russian border. You look at this whole “Russia Trump collusion narrative,” and even if you believed all of it, what would it ultimately mean? The only possible conclusion is that it would mean Russia wants to be friends with America. That’s what they were saying the whole time: “the evil psycho Putin wants to be friends with us – that’s why he hacked our election to install Donald Trump.”

I kept saying that at the time, and it was amazing that no one could work this through in their heads, logically. Putin’s evil master plan was to prevent World War III by strengthening America-Russia relations – this is literally what the Democrats were saying. It was not stated directly, but it was always “Putin thinks Trump will go easy on him…” and it’s like “what?” You mean “go easy on him” as opposed to “provoke conflict with a nuclear power for no clear reason”?

People can talk all the shit they want about Donald Trump – and I’ve talked a lot of shit – but the fact is, he was the first president since Jimmy Carter to not start a new war. “Joe Biden” started this war with Russia 13 months after he took power. No one has explained why, other than this children’s emotional gibberish. If you try to get past the Marvel comic book narrative the media is selling, you certainly can’t argue that the Ukraine is a democracy by any definition of that term (other than “anal sex”). Zelensky banned all opposition media and all opposition political parties. It’s less of a “democracy” than Russia.

So the conclusion is: the West wanted a war with Russia, they now have it, and they are losing.

As it turns out, if Trump actually would have been allowed to make friends with Russia, we would definitely not be facing a collapse of the Western order. Trump wasn’t going to stop the gays or the blacks or any of these other problems, so all that would have happened is that our suffering would have been prolonged.

I’m not an “accelerationist,” but…

As it says over and over again in the Bible, God turns evil to good.

All men serve God, even evil men.

Here’s the full Trump speech.

It’s a mixed bag, but not bad. He’s definitely not shilling vaccines anymore.

“Remember, Biden couldn’t fill in the eight circles. They had eight circles, he couldn’t fill them.”

    Democracy is logically impossible, so no country ever has been or ever will be a democracy.

    Attempts at demotism always devolve into Fascism. Ukraine, being a colony of the GAE, is a feminine Fascism. Women love BL, hence the gay sex.

    “Oh those poor faggots, they don’t get to ass-rape each other freely without getting the shit kicked out of them!” How sad. We can’t have that, now can we? Best destroy male friendship for everyone – then her husband will spend less time at poker and more time paying attention to her, right? (Then they complain about ’emotional labour’ when he tries to get all his formerly-distributed social needs met by her and her alone.)

    Second, by lionizing gays, it feminizes men, which is part of the mission of a feminine Fascism.

  2. Trump is a liar…

    Trump pushed the world towards WW3 by giving the order to fund the Azov Brigade….

    And here is the big lie Trump is pushing:‘Putin was afraid to invade Ukraine because Putin is a girly boy who was afraid of Trump-despite the fact that Trump gave the order to arm the Azov Brigade so that the Azov Brigade could continue slaughtering Slavic Russian Infants in Donbass…

    But Trump is lying through his teeth. Putin has no fear of the coward and War Criminal Trump…..If Trump had been re-elected….Putin would have gave the order to invade Ukraine….unless you believe that Putin is a coward who would have let the Azov Brigade invade Donbas and slaughter Slavic Russians-including Children…..after which they would have invaded Russia….

    The Azov Brigade would have been exterminated by the Russian Military of Trump had been re-elected….

    Most likely this Ukraine fiasco wouldn’t have occurred under Trump. He would have understood that pushing things too far would give the current results and so wouldn’t have pushed for it. That’s why he had to go by hook or crook. There’ll be plenty of unexpected events coming round the bend so we’ll have to wait and see how things shake out.

    Biden and the Empire Establishment Neocons call it Putin’s War because “He Started It” but I call it Biden & the Neocons’ War because if it weren’t for them it would have been over in three days, tops.

    So, if people insist, we can call the first three days Putin’s War and the rest belongs to the Empire. The ((Empire)) if you prefer.

    So far, the Empire has admitted to throwing \$55 Billion of our borrowed funny money down that particular drain. But how much is it really? It’s like trying to get a ghetto baby daddy to admit to how many chidrens he’s actually fathered. Of course he has absolutely no idea.

    And—since someone else is paying for them, he also couldn’t care less. Which extends our little analogy a step further.

    The Dow has dropped eleven of the last twelve weeks. The last time something like that happened was in 1929 and it was followed by the Great Depression. We are headed for Great Depression II. When tax receipts dry up, the government will be looking for places to cut spending.

    People won’t want to eliminate Social Security and throw granny out in the snow so there will only be increases in the retirement age and means testing so the very rich don’t get it. We will be spending more on interest as the Fed raises interest rates so no spending cuts there. This leaves our bloated 800 billion dollar a year military budget. We used to be able to afford this but no longer can with a thirty trillion-dollar national debt and a collapsing economy. It will receive large cuts. We won’t be able to play policeman for the world anymore and won’t be starting any new wars.

    Russia’s Attack on Ukrainian Identity Echoes Soviet Persecution of Germans
    Russia’s attacks on Ukrainian nationhood are nothing new.

    By Joshua R. Kroeker
    June 15, 2022

    The Russian Empire, the Soviet Union, and the Russian Federation have always been multi-ethnic states, with more than 200 ethnic groups living in the country today. But ethnicity has always represented significant difficulties within the state, both for policy makers and for members of ethnic minorities.

    Many nationalities have been displaced, discriminated against, and evicted from their native lands over the centuries. One group, the “Russian Germans” — ethnic Germans who moved to the Russian Empire during the reign of Catherine the Great — endured much of what Ukrainians are being subjected to today. My family, for example, left the Soviet Union to Canada in 1924, after being subjected to persecution and some of the most brutal aspects of the Civil War after the October Revolution.

    Following the Nazi German invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, the Soviet authorities quickly moved to relocate ethnic Germans from the western regions of the empire to Siberia, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. Hundreds of thousands of individuals and families were forced into cattle cars and transported for weeks to the East, lest the Soviet Union face a “fifth column” inside the state.

    As it says over and over again in the Bible, God turns evil to good.

    Evil can’t be logically distinguished from good. They’re not genuinely things that exist. There is only desire.

    As for stuff-called-evil, it’s extraordinarily hard to find any that isn’t self-inflicted. There no victims, only fools. There is no evil, only just punishment for idiocy.

    He railed against Fed over wrong reason . His tax cut enriched his ilks and donors . He abused the offices and allowed family members dictate ME

    He allowed Sudan get off terrorism list because Israel wanted . He tried to rope in Indonesia and Pakistan through same playbook . American interest was not on his mind .
    He exacerbated racial division .

    He essentially did not know his rectum from his lips .
    He is racist , pure bred son of a bitch ,nasty human piece ,corrupt and entitled .
    Jewish are his masters . He got played . He played rest of America : The non-Jewish America .

    His constant and unyielding and enduring devotion love and respect for Russia possibly hides some bad stuff that Russia knows only . Why otherwise he would continue to defend Russia ? He is not a man of principle . He is a man of pure and only of opportunistic disposition . Why did he stick his neck out for Russia when it would have been much easier to become anti -Russian and enjoy the favors of the establishment?

    He still would be better than having Biden as President again . He might even get my vote if Hillary or Biden become the possibility.

    Lets be honest about it, Trump is a deluded prick, not quite as bad as the other deluded pricks maybe but the world won’t be noticeably safer in his hands than in the hands of the corrupt fucking zombie that currently occupies the presidency. He may be worse in some respects as he will probably try to make decisions of his own, at least no-one can accuse Biden of that.

    There isn’t a huge amount of benefit in getting rid of Caligula if you’re going to replace him with Nero. What’s that you say? It doesn’t matter who is president because the US is run by the Jewish led banking mafia? yeah, that too.

  16. “Putin thinks Trump will go easy on him…”

    Trump said a few nice things about Putin; but what about his government’s actual policies toward Russia? Did any of these suggest that Trump’s Russian stance was anything but hostile: economic sanctions, sanctions, more sanctions, and still more sanctions, what Medvedev called “a trade war on Russia;” arming Ukrainian neofascists murdering ethnic Russians; refusing to recognize Crimea’s referendum; abandoning the INF Treaty; staging coup attempts in ally Venezuela; illegally stationing troops in Russian ally Syria; occupying oil fields and killing Russian soldiers who are fighting there at the invitation of the legal elected government; ending the Open Sky Treaty; selling Patriot missiles to Poland and adding 1,000 more US troops there; sending tanks into Estonia, and warships into the Black Sea; ejecting Russian diplomats and forcing Russian news people to register as foreign agents in the US; trying to sabotage the Nordstream pipeline; and in general torpedoing the Russian economy in any way the US can.

    According to an article in the Asia Times, Putin actually had this to say about Trump and his people, “Negotiating with Team Trump is like playing chess with a pigeon: The demented bird walks all over the chessboard, shits indiscriminately, knocks over pieces, declares victory, then runs away.”

    During Trump’s 1st Term, MAGA never held the:
        • House — Appropriations
        • Senate — Confirmations

    Those not paying attention may protest, “But, the GOP had majorities!” However, not all Republicans are MAGA. Establishment swamp critters [a.k.a. GOP(e), RINO] were very common. This resulted in:
        • House — No Border Wall Funding
        • Senate — Traded Cabinet Appointments

    Despite the lack of a House Appropriation, Trump managed to scrape money out of other accounts to build 300-400 miles of Border Wall.

    Does anyone think that Trump wanted to nominate Mrs. Mitch McConnell, Elaine Chao?
    ___

    The next MAGA President, most likely Trump’s 2nd term, will have much more support from Congress. However, removing GOP(e) shills is a long- term process.

    Five of the Ten blood traitors in the House are already gone, and Liz Cheney is almost certain to follow:

     

     

    The Senate is more problematic due to its 6-year terms. For example, GOP(e) swamp dwellers are selling out to support “Gun Control”: (1)

    Republican Sen. John Cornyn was booed by constituents in his home state at the Texas GOP convention on Friday for his role in leading negotiations with Democrats on federal gun restriction legislation.

    From the moment Cornyn, one of 11 Republican senators including Senate Minority Mitch McConnell who have agreed to surrender to Democrats’ demands to impede the sale and purchase of guns, set foot on the GOP stage in Houston, he was met with hostile boos and jeers denouncing his support for a “bipartisan” bill that will likely include sweeping and constitutionally questionable measures such as problematic red flag laws.

    Cornyn’s claims that he “will not under any circumstances support new restrictions for law-abiding citizens” were promptly rejected by the hostile crowd in the Lone Star State who repeatedly chanted “no red flags” and “don’t take our guns.”

    Cornyn won re-election in 2020, which means the next opportunity to get rid of this weasel is 2026.

    While the Senate will be better for Trump’s 2nd term, it is important to have realistic expectations. MAGA will not win all the time in the Senate. Political horse trading will yield some problematic appointments needed in exchange for MAGA Judicial and Cabinet confirmations.

    I have never agreed with you. I don’t like you. But in this case … you’re right, damn right.

    I liked Trump’s showmanship. His horn-doggie authenticity was a breath of fresh air. I liked how he bitch-slapped the GOP dullards. And I most especially appreciated how he “saved us” from the hag beast. On that alone, Trump was a success.

    But it was all downhill from there, because he didn’t have the stones to take down the Deep State. He didn’t realize that politics is a blood sport, and wasn’t prepared, for that. He wasn’t “qualified”. He lacked the killer instinct to prevail in the “Political Death Match” that is DC.

    Consequently, from before the election, and throughout his presidency, his enemies hobbled him. After he was elected, he went slitheringly obsequious before the Jews, which earned him nothing but their contempt. And then he hired Pompeo, who, on behalf of Israel, manipulated him effortlessly. Pompeo is pure evil and made Trump his, and Israel’s, bitch. That said, to Trump’s credit, he twice managed to not let Pompeo manipulate him into a war with Iran.

    In the end, Pompeo was my “Red Line”.

    Trump should have taken a battalion of US Marshals to the headquarters of the corrupt FBI and CIA, and “decapitated” them. He should have assembled the DoJ staff of prosecutors, fired every one with a Dem party taint, then from the top down, started fired them until he found someone who would issue indictments per his direction … and then charge with war crimes every member of Congress who signed off on the AUMF for Iraq or follow-on funding for the war; charged with conspiracy to commit war crimes, every Neocon in the executive, the State Dept, and in the DC think tanks who aided in promoting that war or “stove-piped” phony intel for that war; charged Bush, Hillary, Brennan, Clapper, Hayden, The Rices, S. Power, Bush, Cheney and his entire crew of CIA torturers, and the rest.

    He could have and should have used the DoJ to clean DC of the whole criminal cabal. Then the US could have “rebooted” with a clean slate.

    A tall order to be sure. Sadly, he was not up to the task.

    While your point is certainly true, the war was in fact started in 2014 by the Neo-Klowns and has been going on ever since. 10,000 civilians have been killed by Ukraine/NATO shelling since Nudelman launched the color-revolution in Kiev on Soros’ behalf. The Empire of Lies and its Euro-lapdogs have been arming and training the Banderites ever since. The final straw was the buildup of 100,000 troops in Dombass, the increasing bio-warfare operations plus the Kiev puppet-regime’s plan to start adding nukes to its arsenal. Russia was therefore left with no choice but to intervene as the planned offensive would have entered Russia itself if allowed to proceed.

    Trump did zero to stop the ongoing war in his term (2017-2021) and the buildup of a massive offensive force in Dombass. The continual arms shipments and military training were not even slowed down. White it’s true Trump didn’t launch the war, whose start took place under the administration of the Nobel Peace Prize winner B. Hussein Obama, the whole sordid mess continued without interruption including all of the regular checks to pay “the big guy” his 10% and the lucrative cash-flow for Hunter’s Pedowood lifestyle. Cheetohead the Clown yet again proved himself to be at best a worthless lying grifter, which is (at best) all he ever was and all he will ever be. It’s well past time he was tossed onto the reeking compost pile of history.

    How much is the niggra-diversity tax (both direct and indirect) in America?

    I’ve seen that they receive four thousand dollars more in benefits than they pay in taxes. Welfare will need to be cut too. In the future welfare may just consist of homeless shelters so people won’t freeze or starve to death.

    The national debt is so large and the fact that the large Boomer generation is retiring and no longer going to be productive taxpayers means we will have to cut almost every area of government. There is a tendency for everyone to want the government programs they benefit from kept in place and to point at other programs to cut and that is part of the problem.

    I’ve known for a long time we will need to increase the retirement age for the government to maintain fiscal solvency. I’m a civilian military employee. When I reached 65 last year, I thought about the big government debt we were leaving future generations. Thomas Jefferson said doing that would be immoral and had been for adding an amendment to Constitution preventing it. I decided to work until seventy. If more people would do that then Social Security and the government pension system will still be there for future generations.

    I didn’t think Anglin was so stupid. Will we ever hear the end of this misleading cliche? The evil orange clown obviously tried to start a war with Iran; he escalated Obama’s illegal military adventure in Syria; he escalated in Afghanistan; he escalated the hybrid wars against Russia, China, Syria, Iran and Venezuela. He exited the INF treaty and reinstituted cold war provocations against Russia and China. He did nothing to defuse the escalating crisis in Ukraine (e.g. he did not pressure Poroshenko or Zelensky to implement the Minsk agreement – instead he started the flow of weapons to Ukraine). That Trump wasn’t able to start another kinetic war despite trying and taking foolish risks was purely a matter of luck and/or the restraint of the other parties involved.

    As it turns out, if Trump actually would have been allowed to make friends with Russia, we would definitely not be facing a collapse of the Western order.

    Yet more absurd BS from Anglin. Contrary to his pre-election shtick, the evil orange clown had no intention of seeking better relations with Russia, China, Iran, Syria or Venezuela.

    The U.S. military has met its goal of reducing the number of troops in Afghanistan to about 2,500 by Friday, a drawdown that appears to violate a last-minute congressional prohibition.

    President Donald Trump, who ordered the reduction in November, said Thursday that troop levels in Afghanistan had reached a 19-year low, although he did not mention a troop number. Last February his administration struck a deal with the Taliban to reduce American troop levels in phases and to go to zero by May 2021, although it is unclear how the incoming Biden administration will proceed.

    Trump’s administration learned about General SJW Milley’s plan to intentionally turn any full Afghanistan withdrawal into a fiasco. He successfully avoided this Deep State trap. Not-The-President Biden leapt right into the Pentagon’s prearranged failure.

    You’re a liar. In Dec 2016, there were 278 U.S. troops in Syria and by Dec 2017, that number increased to 1720. Upon being inaugurated, Trump immediately escalated. Trump also launched several attacks on Syrian military infrastructure and military forces, which killed people and risked a war with Russia. Later in his term Trump seized Syrian oil fields. This criminal act was apparently done to deprive the Syrian government of the money from sales of the oil, which provided about 25% of Syrian government revenue.

    What “cover story” are you talking about? I neither stated nor implied that revenue from Syrian oil went to the U.S., if that’s what you mean. It’s a well known fact that Trump kept U.S. forces in Syria to prevent Syrian oilfields from coming back under the control of the Syrian government. The oil is being stolen by U.S. terrorist proxies (SDF) under the protection of U.S. forces. That’s what I meant by “Trump seized Syrian oil fields.”

    According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (apparently as per Bashar Al-Jaafari, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Syria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations):

    “The US and Turkish occupation forces, in partnership with terrorist organizations and entities and separatist militias, continue to loot Syria’s oil and gas resources, antiquities and agricultural crops.”

    Trump is the ultimate avatar of the lesser evil. His supporters will tell you that they are aware the he isn’t perfect, that he’s only human and by pointing his flaws, instead of turning people away from him, you end up making them identify with him.
    By perpetually voting for whom they perceive as the lesser evil, people’s morality gets so warped eventually that they start conflating lesser evil and good, disregarding the fact that lesser evil is still evil. Yet, when one confronts the Trumpista’s perception of the Donald because of what he says with Donald’s actions in the real world, cognitive dissonance kicks in. To solve it, they pretend that his actions never happened or aren’t what they are or are what they are but are actually moves in a great game of imaginary 4D chess at which Trump is a grand master. They need to reinsure themselves with the belief that his aims are good and that they are not accomplices of evil. That is how people become prisoners of their own beliefs.
    That is why no amount of facts you lay down before people will change their beliefs.

    I agree, but as much as I hate to even contemplate it (and I hope I’m wrong), I believe that the ruling Satanic cult will start a nuclear war before it gets that bad. They know they’re losing yet they can never admit defeat and reverse course, so they probably see nuclear murder-suicide as their only “way out.”

    The “leaders” that have committed obvious war crimes, in the US and Europe, are the ones that see a loss of world hegemon status as their potential death sentence via a war crimes tribunal. They are the ones that could want a nuclear war as a last resort to keep their necks from a noose. It is the military leadership that has so far not committed a war crime that stand in the way of executing orders that would put their necks into a noose.

    Anyone with vision clear enough to see what’s going on should understand that the US and Europe are failing in multiple ways. To gamble on an expansion of hostilities when both China and Russia would fight back has to be a calculation that cooler heads must be contemplating. North Korea should be worrying Japan and South Korea should things get hot and therefore they can’t be counted on to aid the “west” in any action.

    Further, the admitted lack of munitions and basic WW-II style kinetic weaponry should tell the entire world that they’ve been bluffed for decades with the threat that requires a massive hit (shock & awe) before the adversary realizes that there’s little left to sustain more fighting.

    Right now, the US and NATO’s bluff is being called. The longer this goes on, the more likely the economies of the “west” will fail before things escalate. Should an escalation be introduced, that alone would require massive out of thin air spending that will kill the Dollar’s and the Euro’s purchasing power. I see this as a no win situation for the US and Europe; finished either way.

    There were only two options HILLARY or TRUMP:

    — Would you have preferred Hillary’s Afghanistan policy? If not, why are you complaining about Trump’s reduction to 2,500 troops in Afghanistan.

    — Would you have preferred Hillary’s ground war in Iran? If not, why are you complaining about Trump’s refusal to invade Iran?

    — Would you have preferred Hillary’s Syria policy? Presumably, she would have backed Erdogan’s invasion. If not, why are you complaining about Trump’s de-escalation in Syria?

    Your #NeverTrump frenzy serves the establishment’s wars.
        • How is your Not-The-President Biden working out for you?

    No amount of deception and misrepresentation on your part can take away from the TRUTH. Trump is the first President in recent history who did not start any new wars.

    To gamble on an expansion of hostilities when both China and Russia would fight back has to be a calculation that cooler heads must be contemplating.

    But what “cooler heads” are these? I believe any and all reasonable people in any positions of power or influence – including the military chain of command – have long been purged. (After all, look what they did to their own troops with the mandatory covid-19 “vaccines” with little or no opposition).

    Anyway, when Trump exited the INF treaty – which brought the Satanic cults’ nuclear death wish right out into the open – even I was surprised that there seemed to be little or no opposition from any quarters.

    Right now, the US and NATO’s bluff is being called. The longer this goes on, the more likely the economies of the “west” will fail before things escalate. Should an escalation be introduced, that alone would require massive out of thin air spending that will kill the Dollar’s and the Euro’s purchasing power.

    I believe Western rulers know they can’t win a conventional war against Russia in Europe. And I believe Western rulers realize that Russia will achieve its goals in Ukraine and that the economic war against Russia is failing (not only failing but backfiring and damaging the West more than Russia). So as I see it, this leaves them with two choices: gracefully accept defeat or start a nuclear war and try to take as much of the world down with them as they can.

    I’ve said the same thing on this site in the past and a nuclear war could happen. However, most of these lunatics have families that probably don’t want to be incinerated by the flash or slowly killed by the radiation. That’s what I mean by cooler heads – hot heads that reflect on the consequences to themselves and their families when push comes to shove. It’s easy to stand with your buddies and bullshit each other when it’s just talk, but something altogether different if things get real.

    I’ve also stated that if I were in Putin’s position, I would surface nuclear submarines in New York harbor and off DC with a clear message to the inhabitants of those areas that any stupid moves by the US or NATO means New York and DC are gone. To remove those nukes, the US and NATO just have to close their bases in Europe.

    Taking on Russia would quickly escalate to at least tactical nukes. Once that genie is out of the bottle, the ICBM’s would fly and that probably would end the supposedly civilized world leaving the uncontacted bushmen to wonder what happened to the weather.

    Russia and China are trying to run out the clock on the US economy so they don’t have to confront the US. The US and Europe are cooperating in their own economic destruction because their ideological worldview has no option to reverse course. From my perspective, the SHTF moment could happen before I finish writing this reply, the US is that close to dollar collapse.

    My hope is that one of the highly leveraged Japanese or European banks fails to start the domino effect and take down the US and European banking systems. Once that slide starts, there’s no recapitalizing those systems because there’s nothing left to do it with. Out of thin air currency had its shot.

    I think you’re vastly overestimating the abilities of the US military. If any widespread armed conflict happens in America, they’re gonna need a lot of help. Call me superstitious, but you cannot run around bullying the rest of the world and turn on your own(armed) people simultaneously and expect to hold it together. Fate often intervenes and it usually doesn’t end well. That sort of arrogance is more often than not, fatal. But then again, these people seem to believe they’re the baddest dudes on the block. Ironically enough it could well end up being that the US military doesn’t go down in another nation but rather within it’s own nation. Personally, I think the collapse of the US ’empire’ is going to involve a whole lot more than just a collapsed economy, and it will include, among other things, the destruction in some form or another of the US military. I think even this current conflict they are throwing gasoline on all by itself is going to be their undoing.

    I am babbling.

    Yes, that was obvious. Thought-free. My condolences, but you failed to hide it.

    You can stop worrying though, you’re obeying the Regime correctly. That’s exactly how you’re been ordered to behave.

    What most call “morality” is the tension between long term and short term.

    Because “morality” only applies to conscious agents, if you impose costs on them they will impose costs right back until it’s not a worthwhile strategy. The only reason stuff-called-immoral has a benefit at all is due to the delay between the action and response.

    There’s a link between cooperative behaviour and IQ; dumb folk can’t appreciate the long term. They see the short-term benefit and choose that over the short-term cost. (Bonus round: stupid victims have a longer delay between action and response, sometimes even long enough that the stupid perpetrator can’t link the two and thus can’t learn.)

    Of course lying is itself a short-term strategy; trying to suppress the intersection of criminality and stupidity by lying about it undermines the idea of long-term investment per se. (Ref: read a newspaper.) Bad civilization. Trying to use the idea of “morality” is itself bad civilization. it’s important so I said it twice.

    More specifically, universal morality. The qualifier gets dropped because Idiocracy. Regular morality refers to mores – local customs. Trying to violate the local customs is another thing which is plain stupid, unless you’re conquering them. (Conquest itself is a dubious proposition.) However, this is not because of some deontological rule, but because they will fight you. The local mores work for them and they can work for you too as long as you’re there.

    Unless the local mores are Satanic, of course. They don’t work for anyone, and they’ll fight you even if you follow them due to their inherent nature, so… In particular, so here we are.

    The correct solution to getting stupid people not to foolishly commit crime is to have local mores. It happens by itself as long as nobody is taking a [universal morality] shit all over the place.

    Step 1: someone tells the stupid person not to do that. Step 2: some do it anyway, but the ones that do get poor and/or dead. Parallel 1: folk start to recognize common errors and punish them sooner. Parallel 2: it becomes high-status to be not-stupid, because that always happens. Result: local mores always converge on being not-stupid. The stupid folk don’t have to think about the long term, they can just think about what everyone else is doing. They’re rather fond of thinking as such for obvious Darwinian reasons.

    Universal morality has a second Satanic effect. If local mores are presented as universal mores, when a smart person figures out an even longer-term solution, they can’t use it. It’s against the rules. This puts smart folk in direct opposition to your mores. This is not exactly the group you most want to make an enemy of. Undermining your “moral” order becomes one of their top priorities, and, almost by definition, you have no smart folk to defend the order. Result: read a newspaper.

    Universal morality is Pride.
    (It’s almost like I have reasons to say the things I say. Weird, but eccentric.)

    Cooperate with cooperators.
    Not because it’s “moral,” whatever that is.
    Do it because you don’t want to be an idiot.

    Come to think alleged-meritocratic stratification is inherently bad civilization. Siloes intelligent long-term thinkers away from dumb short-term thinkers. You get balkanized mores where the best example is a bad example.

    Inherent to egalitarianism. If you have smart folk next to dumb folk, it’s heresy. You notice they’re unequal. If you don’t have egalitarianism you can just use lords and lordship. “Hey have you tried the obvious thing.” Universal morality is so obviously narcissist I feel rude for saying it is.

    But how are you supposed to show off how smart you are if you do the obvious thing? Is life even worth living without mental gymnastics? Twisting in knots is what Socrates meant by “examining” your life, right?

    Painfully obvious Shia propaganda:

    — America vastly over produces food. Why would Americans steal wheat? The idea is absurd.

    — How does one steal wheat? You cannot place it in a standard truck. The wacky “crime” theory becomes vastly over complicated when there is a requirement to steal trucks to have a grain heist. What is this… Gone in 60 Seconds, Part XV?

    — In theory, where was the convoy going? The only bordering countries are Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, and Turkey. The overly complex, movie heist becomes even more convoluted because 3rd nation involvement is required to accept the shipment.

    No one with two brain cells to rub together would believe this. It makes *NO* sense.
    _____

    Is there a more plausible explanation?
        • Turkey has the correct trucks nearby.
        • Erdogan needs to feed his people.
        • The criminal country would process the stolen grain.
    If the “crime” actually happened, it is vastly more likely that the perpetrators were Turks.

    Scenarios like these explain why Trump wisely relocated U.S. troops away from Erdogan’s forces. Taking the de-escalation option prevents America from being entangled in Erdogan’s misadventures.

    If there is no nuclear engagement with Russia, I suspect the US regime will turn inward, as there’s then no where else to turn, and implement an in your face dictatorship to replace the soft dictatorship that has run the country since the 60’s. The US will be spent on the world stage. The deep state will just scale down and concentrate on what’s available in the immediate vicinity. At that point, the only option the citizenry has is to withhold their labor and intellect to purposely undermine “authority”. I further suspect that the morons that join the US military will follow order to murder the citizenry for a while, but will eventually turn their guns on their commanding officers as was done via fragging in Vietnam. That’s also why I think foreign military will be brought in because they have no local relatives. The 5 eyes could do with military what they do now with intelligence, US to Australia, Australia to Great Britain, etc. The propaganda machine can make orders reasonable for a while.

    The weaponry in the hands of the average person are no match for what the military has. In an all out confrontation, the military wins simply because they can bomb cities to rubble as an object lesson to those still alive. To assume that the military won’t make an example of some hamlet is naive. Dresden?

    To assume that small arms in the hands of overweight citizens is going to deter a determined military force is also naive. Thinking that the citizens of New York are going to hide in the rugged mountains of Central Park as the Afghans did in Afghanistan isn’t going to happen. The citizenry of Chicago are not going to melt into the surrounding jungle.

    I want my weaponry to fight off some POS that wants to do me harm. To commit suicide fighting a military is plain stupid. Only an intelligent response can possibly win.

  87. Great points especially regarding them turning inward. I can’t remember who it was but I read an article from at least 20 years ago by someone fairly well known describing that very scenario. That essentially as the US dwindled on global stage, the same forces used around the world would be turned inward against their own people. As for the US military, they have a lot of gear no doubt, but I am not in the slightest impressed with the average US soldier or Marine. I have fairly close associates from both branches who have been in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan and have gone shooting as well as done a couple run-n-gun meets with them and honestly was shocked at how seemingly lacking in both discipline as well as even basic knowledge of firearms that all 3 of them were. In one instance, one of them burned his hand badly picking up one of my rifles by the barrel after I had been firing it for 15-20 minutes. And he did it TWICE. In another instance, I was standing at a pistol only range speaking to one of these guys and he was holding his pistol up at an angle just above shoulder height and accidentally clicked off a round. I thought maybe his training and been specifically in anti-aircraft gunnery lol, jesus. Could not believe it. And he never said a word, just paused momentarily from being startled by his weapon going off and then kept on talking. I would never describe these young guys as being ‘stupid’ at all, but those incidences combined with a glaring lack of discipline in all 3 of them really had me wondering about their training. More importantly than any of that however references what you said about bringing in others and I also agree and that is what I meant by my first statement. They could move troops into areas of the country they are unfamiliar with but I think it would work better to bring in foreigners who don’t know or care about the people here at all. I have heard people say that the US military has somehow gotten much better at insurgency style warfare but I disagree. They actually did not do well in Iraq though so many like to claim we ‘won’. I guess it depends on one’s definition of a win. Somewhere along the line however, everyone gets their comeuppance and I don’t care who they are or what military it is, it is nearly an almost metaphysical/spiritual certainty and cannot usually be explained merely by looking at what weaponry or even reputation a particular person or military has.

    “I want my weaponry to fight off some POS that wants to do me harm. To commit suicide fighting a military is plain stupid. Only an intelligent response can possibly win”

    I don’t at all believe it is necessarily ‘suicidal’ That’s the sort of thing I read and hear repeated often. However, that said, smart play dictates refraining from direct engagement as much and for as long a period as possible.

    I don’t dispute anything you’ve said but I believe a direct military confrontation could also come at any time, even by accident at this point. There are recent reports that the U.S. is escalating in Syria and apparently Lithuania is now being used to start more trouble by disrupting rail transportation between Russia and Kaliningrad. The madmen must know that Russia can not and will not back down, so I have to assume that they intend to start a direct war between NATO and Russia.

    If you’re going to imply that the “government” actually cares about consequences such as inflation then it makes a difference. If they don’t have a problem mass-murdering us with biological warfare agents, and they don’t have a problem flirting with nuclear war, what makes you think they care about inflation?

    If the money is not there to spend in the future, they can’t spend it.

    I’m saying there is a limit to how big it can get before there is a financial crisis and that financial crisis is much sooner and is going to be much larger than people expect. The Dow has dropped 11 of the last 12 weeks. The last time something like that happened was in 1929. It was followed by the Great Depression. We are either headed to Great Depression II or the Fed will give up on interest increases and we go into hyperinflation. Then instead of the ruble becoming rubble, as Biden said was going to happen, the dollar will become rubble.

    If you think the debt can go to \$50 trillion, then do you think it can go to \$100 trillion? \$200 trillion? If you don’t think it can go on forever, then you and I just differ on when it ends. As I said, I think things are worse than most people think. To give another example, the Fed would have to raise interest rates higher than inflation to stop it. If it raised rates to 10%, then the government would be paying \$3 trillion a year just on interest on the \$30 trillion national debt. This would not happen immediately because outstanding debt would need to roll over but a third of U.S. debt rolls over yearly so we are headed in that direction.

In response to what you appeared to be saying earlier, my point was that a financial crisis will not deter the demon-possessed madmen running the U.S. “government” from pursuing their agenda. Even if we get to the point where a loaf of bread costs \$100 they will not back down; instead they will keep doubling down on failure while blaming someone else for it all, e.g. Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, etc.

    It’s clear that the long-foreseeable financial crisis is already here, yet it looks like the 2023 defense budget is going to be significantly larger than the 2022 defense budget; so the Satanic cult running the U.S. “government” shows no sign of reining in the profligate spending just as I knew would be the case.

    If you think the debt can go to \$50 trillion, then do you think it can go to \$100 trillion? \$200 trillion?

    I didn’t say that “[I] think the debt can go to \$50 trillion” (or any other number). In reply to your statement (comment #101) that “[i]f the money is not there to spend in the future, they can’t spend it,” I pointed out that they’re already spending money they don’t have, and I posed a rhetorical question to make the point that there’s no apparent end in sight.

    If you don’t think it can go on forever, then you and I just differ on when it ends.

    Well I’m sure it won’t go on forever, so yes, we differ on when it ends. If I understand correctly you seem to believe that at some point the madmen will come to their senses and cut spending, and I believe that it will only stop when they finally bring the missiles down on us; that is, I believe only devastating physical destruction will stop them.

    And with that I think I’m done with this discussion.

    No, you don’t understand correctly what I believe. I don’t think they will come to their senses but, rather than the U.S. being destroyed in a nuclear war, there will be a financial crisis that will force cuts in military spending that they don’t want because the money is no longer there. It would be like a bank robber no longer robbing banks because all the money was robbed from them, and the banks shut down. You wouldn’t say the bank robber suddenly came to his senses in a situation like that. There just were no banks he could rob.

  103. “During World War II, the United States forcibly relocated and incarcerated about 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry, most of whom lived on the Pacific Coast, in concentration camps in the western interior of the country.”

    The US has apologized and paid reparations.

    I see the nuclear war fear bandwagon has sprung to life once again.
