Every election cycle offers up the same replay loop from hell. A globalist puppet mouths recycled platitudes while the crowd jumps up and down like mentally challenged “Price is Right” contestants. “Hope and Change,” “Make America Great Again,” “Build Back Better”- this time it’s going to be different. It’s worse than Lucy repeatedly pulling the football away from Charlie Brown at the last second. In the US voting hustle, after Charlie’s flat on his back, Lucy beats him over the head with a ball peen hammer. Yet people still vote.

Like Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX crypto scheme, the Ukraine money laundering war, and the covid virus/mRNA bioweapon attack- voting is another scam in the Empire’s wealth transfer/population control playbook. Participating in this scam only enables the abuser. It’s like playing blackjack in a casino owned and operated by Goldman Sachs, and expecting to win the jackpot. Not only is the game rigged, but the buffet’s contaminated with salmonella, the hookers have crotch rot, the bartender waters down the drinks, and the floor show is Zelensky in drag playing the piano with his penis. Oh wait a minute, we’re really in that casino. And they chain-locked all the exits.

Over a decade ago the US Empire outsourced vote counting to companies like Diebold. Diebold is a multinational financial corporation with strong ties to the international banking cartels. They own the proprietary rights to the data inputted into their machines. That means no third-party audits. Putting global finance in charge of the voting machines and expecting an honest count is like making Ted Bundy the head counselor at a battered women’s shelter and hoping for positive growth and healing. Like Stalin said, “It’s not the people who vote that count, it’s the people who count the votes.”

The Diebold scam is justification enough to boycott the electoral process, but it gets worse. The Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling allowed the unlimited flow of corporate money into elections. US politics have always been corrupt, but the oligarchy was never brazen enough to legalize bribery in full public view.

The old-school politician was happy to collect his brown paper bag of money from the local union boss or strip mall developer. However, he still needed to show up at Polish Kielbasa Day or the county fair to shake the people’s sweaty palms and kiss their sticky goo-covered babies. He even had to produce sometimes. Whether that meant writing a letter to get a voter’s kid into West Point, hooking up constituents with highway department jobs, or letting the mafia build the amusement park that had the Tilt-A-Whirl with missing bolts and a falsified safety inspection. Hey, better a kid spends the summer with his arm in a cast, than putting him in a dress and loading him up with monthly mRNA injections that start when he’s 6 months old.

Today’s “servants of the people” have zero accountability to their constituents. They answer only to the donor class, i.e., the MIC, multinationals, oligarchs, Wall Street, and the Zionist Lobby. The bills they introduce on the floor but never read are written by K Street corporate lobbyists. Politicians no longer need us. They certainly don’t fear us. So why vote? Whatever you think of Emma Goldman’s politics, she was right when she said, “If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.”

The treason alone is reason enough to boycott voting. Except for the US and a few of its flunky vassals, in what country in the world is it acceptable for a politician to get up on stage and proudly proclaim their undying and primary loyalty to a foreign nation? Yet each year “our” politicians stand under the AIPAC banner and pledge allegiance to Israel. Watching these slugs kiss the ring of the Red (late Sheldon Adelson) or Blue (Haim Saban) Israeli oligarch kingmaker provides an incredible spectacle of debasement.

Keep hoping that the next Knesset deliverer is going to bust you free from Pharaoh’s chains. Besides his billionaire tax cuts, Trump’s next greatest achievement in office was moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. At least he didn’t start any new wars. He only kept the old ones going. Ron DeSantis wants to make criticism of Israel a felony. Do you think his loyalty is to you, or his corporate overlords? Or that his fundamental policies differ from those of hell-zombie and dementia victim Joe Biden? No matter which zio-puppet sleeps in the White House, we’re going to continue making mud bricks without straw.

Trying to reform the corporate uniparty is like building a rattlesnake petting zoo. It can only end in disappointment and heartache. Sometimes the rot in a structure’s foundation is so terminal, all you can do is stand back and watch it collapse. That reality is hard to accept and is probably what keeps many voting.

If voting’s a scam, why do the globalists spend tens of billions of dollars on the election spectacle? It’s cheaper than throwing everyone in prison. It’s like Frank Zappa said: “The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

I hate to break it to you, but we live in an Orwellian dictatorship, or what political philosopher Sheldon Wolin called “inverted totalitarianism.” A good person to demonstrate that is the late Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein ran a teen sex blackmail ring for Mossad. His operation was the small portion of the crocodile’s head visible above the water. It’s what they allowed us to see. The mass of the beast lies below the surface. I’d surmise that Mossad’s sex tapes of Joe Biden would make Chester the Molester puke. But I digress.

Whatever Epstein’s crimes, he deserved his day in court. For the Deep State/Mossad to feel emboldened enough to enter Manhattan’s most secure jail while Epstein was under 24/7 video surveillance suicide watch and break his neck is amazing. That the FBI, the NYPD, the District Attorney, and the mainstream press, refused to even pretend to investigate the obvious assassination of an internationally known figure tells me that we are close to Frank Zappa’s prediction.

If they did that to Epstein, imagine what they’d do to one of us. Given the ruthlessness of the government, I’m happy to be an inconsequential slob. Rising to “threat level” in the eyes of the Deep State can result in a very bad hair day. McGruff the drug dog could sniff out the kilo of heroin hidden in your car. You could wind up the victim of one of those Seth Rich muggings where the assailant forgets to take your watch and wallet. You could wake up dead from “covid.” Even if everyone knew who was who and what was what, your police chief, mayor, and local crime-beat reporter wouldn’t dare lift their eyes from their smartphone screen. When those in power can kill anyone, anywhere, anytime, with zero consequences, you’re living in a cold-blooded dictatorship. But hey, keep voting.

Look at those poor Jan. 6 rubes who believed in Trump. Some got years in the fed for being naive enough to walk through the Capitol’s opened doors and take selfies. Ironically, I bet many were “support the blue” and “lock ‘em up and throw away the key” types. That’s all peach pie wonderful, until you’re the one who gets locked in the closet with Big Beaumont. It’s common practice to lock down two men 24/7 for months at a time in a cell the size of a bathroom. If that’s not “cruel and unusual punishment,” I don’t know what is. You can tell a lot about a society by the way it treats its prisoners.

Jan. 6 was a message. To me, it rang louder than “The Bells of St. Mary’s.” A lot of folks are still wearing earplugs.

What makes voting such a destructive psyop is that we’re in a never-ending election cycle. A lot of people exert much of their emotional energy on the Red vs. Blue puppet show. I think it would be psychologically healthier to accept that voting in a dictatorship is as much a waste of time as fitting Janet Yellen with a chastity belt. I understand why some cling to the “we live in a democracy” fantasy. Reality can be harsher than sandpaper underwear.

It’s possible I’m wrong about voting. Maybe if you close the curtain, recite the magic incantation, and pull the lever, then the voting booth turns into a “Back to the Future” time machine that transports you to 1958. Ward’s pulling out of the driveway in his shiny aqua-blue Chevrolet Bel Air, while June waves him off from the front porch. Wally and the Beaver are upstairs getting ready for school as The Chordettes’ “Lollipop” plays in the background. Make America Great Again- vote harder.

If you discount voting, then from my viewpoint, there are two possible ways out of this. The first is for space aliens to beam down that black monolith from Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey.” After rubbing it, we realize that steering humanity into a Fermi’s Paradox Great Filter so a small cabal of Davos psycho-hoarders can play God and own every grain of sand and molecule of water on planet Earth is a bad idea. After this brilliant cognition, we turn things around by getting on the path that leads the human race toward a Star Trek Kardashev Type II Civilization.

The second option is to wait for the Ponzi scheme to collapse. The Tyler Durden side of me would enjoy watching this thing burn to the ground. The John and Yoko “Give Peace a Chance” part of me recognizes that means incredible suffering and a huge loss of life. If you want to see what collapse looks like, take a gander at Ukraine. No heat or electricity in the winter. Food scarcity. Exploding shells. Surrounded by roving bands of Azov neo-Nazi psycho-killers. It’s not a ride for the faint of heart. What’s truly horrific is that slow incremental death by a thousand leeches could be worse.

It doesn’t matter what I want. The forces directing this are far bigger than me. I’m a Neo-wannabe floating helplessly in the protoplasmic currents of the Rothschild-Rockefeller Satanic Matrix. All I can do is heed the old convict proverb: “Do your number one day at a time.”

If collapse occurs during my lifetime, and assuming I still possess the mental and physical strength to deal with it, I’ll assess the situation and take the appropriate action. Run your program. Follow your code. What else can you do? Vote?

    Excellent concise summation of where we are at. Perhaps the only missing major element is the rise of neo pagan Gaia worship. Type II civilization would perhaps relieve the tensions where the masses have abundant and clean energy freeing individuals for greater pursuits though I doubt the controllers would give up the power over the masses that a type II civilization implies.
    Whatever happens at least the young people can find a telos that is otherwise difficult to find in these queer times.

    in spite of the collapse of the democratic ponzi/money laundering operation, demonstrating the total corruption and criminality of the ruling 0verclass, we are now told that the brandon administration, now has the overwhelming support of 71% of democrats who intend to ‘reelect’ him in 2024.

    I’m pretty much in agreement with all you say in this offering, except for the exerpt above.

    If you don’t start peraring for the collapse ahead of time, then when it hits (ie, the shtf) the programme you’ll be running may turn out to be a little bit “Mad Max”.

    Best to get your spuds in the ground now if you can – both figuratively and literally. Baring in mind that no man (or woman) is an island, and we can’t survive for long without cooperation and mutual support. So, linking up with like-minded people in order to create mutual support networks, communities, gardening cooperatives, etc, may well prove to be your very best chance.

    We can’t survive without food, shelter, or fuel (firewood, or whatever you can obtain) either, and those things are much easier to secure in cooperation with others.

    But if the most you can manage right now, by way of preparation, is to squirrel away some dried/preserved food and seeds, then do that. – Plus identify a place or two where you might plant those seeds (especially if you live in a city – which I don’t recomend).

    If you do live in a city, then I would highly recommend getting some sort of motor-home (RV) or caravan (trailer – plus car with tow-bar, of course) – your possible gateway to freedom and survival.

    I could go on (and on), but only if you (reader) want me to.

    With love,
    Kali.

  5. excellent article. I would add to vote green party or libertarian as a priest vote. doing so says “I actively think the two party system is bullshit” instead of “I am: too demoralised/busy/love Democrats or Republicans so much either one is great! to vote.”

    people should not be afraid to talk about all the corrupt bullshit and history, if your friends don’t know about epstein/USS liberty/Biden laptop cover up/the Jan 6 entrapment/russiagate bring a hoax etc. then you are a bad friend. share links/articles/videos and don’t stop. move the Overton window of your own social discussions.

    I recommend starting at antiwar.com and the interviews at scotthorton.org and then from their adding your own websites and more edgy interests.

    Excellent Mr. Solomon, I have posted the following several times on this blog with little response:
    The SCOTUS has passed down egregious decisions that abridge the First Amendment and show contempt for the concept of representative democracy. Buckley v. Valeo, 424 U.S. 1976 and exacerbated by continuing stupid SCOTUS decisions First National Bank of Boston v. Bellotti, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, and McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission.
    These decisions have codified that money is free speech thereby giving entities of wealth and power total influence in elections.

    I distinctly remember, at the time, I thought this is a terrible idea.

    Trying to reform the corporate uniparty is like building a rattlesnake petting zoo. It can only end in disappointment and heartache.

    Elections are touted as the definition of democracy. That country has elections, it is democratic. That country doesn’t have elections, it’s undemocratic. There is no recognition of the fact that the people who are elected are in no way the representatives of the citizenry, they are the agents of the people who paid for their election. BUT the definition of democracy is governance by the citizens via their representatives. That does not exist, anywhere.

It’s difficult to make any sense of this article, I’m guessing that ‘Ron Solomon’ could just as well be named ‘Identity Unknown’, i.e. we don’t know anything at all about the person or persons who wrote this whatever it is … If I’m wrong, who in hell is ‘Ron Solomon’? I do believe Unz should start identifying which authors are real persons, which are unknown entities.

  15. First off, Richard Solomon, this is one of the best articles I ever read at TUR.

    Nonetheless, when I read this, “For the Deep State/Mossad to feel emboldened enough to enter Manhattan’s most secure jail while Epstein was under 24/7 video surveillance suicide watch and break his neck is amazing.

    I see so few remarks about the US abuse of prisoners that anyone who says something about the practice deserves praise!

    Ron DeSantis wants to make criticism of Israel a felony. Do you think his loyalty is to you, or his corporate overlords? Or that his fundamental policies differ from those of hell-zombie and dementia victim Joe Biden?

    Earlier the Author used the word “brazen”. They ought to have a photograph of RDD in the dictionary beside that word.

    This fellow travelled all the way to the shithole state for his first cabinet meeting to demonstrate what a total suck-up he would be for God’s Most Favorite Thieves and Murderers if he ever gets the chance.

    It’s a shame this author couldn’t resist speaking of his own approval for Trump’s Coup Attempt. Still, I’ll give this one a solid “A”.

    Perhaps the only missing major element is the rise of neo pagan Gaia worship.

    I think it was implicitly touched on. Monotheism and voting seem to be a match. Knowing and doing what’s best for the tribe is an anathema to “one human one vote.” The most modern of pagan societies is Japan and the vote there is just a method of confirming an already agreed-upon consensus.

  22. Agree with Mr Solomon’s view. However, I would add — don’t vote, yes.
    But make a public point about why you should not vote. Organise. Turn not voting into a de facto vote — a vote against the whole rotten system.
    “Not voting” could be turned into a one issue “party” (but what a massive, revolutionary issue!!).
    It also has the advantages that there’s no need to get onto any (corrupt) “ballot” or worry about “getting out the vote”. Simple.

  24. My reality in my part of the USA:

    A two/three bedroom rental house is $1500 a month for a decent cheapie.

    They’re begging for cashiers at the grocery stores, everybody is begging for workers.

    Let’s say you make around $12 an hour, which is low-balling it in fact, for a low class job. Let’s say you gross $2000 a month and so does your low class spouse. That’s $4000 gross. But you both also work part time jobs (very possible these days) so that adds another $1000 a month. That’s $5000 gross, minimum, a month. Lets say out of that you take home $3500. Certainly possible. Rent brings it down to $2500.

    With that you pay for cheap food, your kid, an old car and an old truck, and you scrape by. But you do scrape by. Lots of jobs means you can simply work more hours on the second job.

    That’s low class people, low working class. Lots of low class jobs everywhere. You have to work a lot, but so what? What else would you be doing? Watching TV. You watch TV, work, buy groceries and gas, get cheap clothes and furniture at the thrift shops, get some rice and beans and pasta maybe at the food bank. Drink cheap beer to get high, go to work the next day.

    You don’t vote but you survive. You will not be the motive force of any revolution.

    There you have it. If and and only if the unemployment rate gets over X percent and the government does not step in with a ‘helping hand’, then that low class population will really start feeling the bite. But if they can work 60 hours a week and thus survive there will be no movement and populism in both its left and right forms will be held at bay.

    High Unemployment without sufficient Government Aid: that will be the trigger.

    Your ironic thrusts and slashes stir up more political awareness than a thousend mainstream commentators ever could. If the essence of great humor is a fleeting glimpse into Nietzsche’s yawning abyss, your treatment of our predicament is solid ground for optimism. More and more sane and sentient people will want to back off from the Type II Civilization, maybe before the final collapse.

    Have an anti-election day party where only nonvoters are welcome. Perfect for introduction and outreach. Make it a semi-annual event. Keep it grassroots & loosely organized at best.

    Control of currency creation is the linchpin of the current governing system. IMO, change can only be effected by removing governments/banks control of money. Money should be an organic function of the market, not determined by any other factors except the traders involved.

    In the current environment of heavy inflation, there’s opportunity to get the word out & be listened to. Now’s the time for the liberty remnant to get active. Critical mass has never been more attainable than now.

    SURPRISE:

    WOW! A half decent article on UNZ review!!!

    It is difficult to choose a ‘best’ or ‘key’ paragraph. The following is typical.

    The treason alone is reason enough to boycott voting. Except for the US and a few of its flunky vassals, in what country in the world is it acceptable for a politician to get up on stage and proudly proclaim their undying and primary loyalty to a foreign nation? Yet each year “our” politicians stand under the AIPAC banner and pledge allegiance to Israel. Watching these slugs kiss the ring of the Red (late Sheldon Adelson) or Blue (Haim Saban) Israeli oligarch kingmaker provides an incredible spectacle of debasement.

    However, Solomon fails to offer any alternative (to voting). He implies that political culture is by necessity, -no, HISTORY, is a Dictatorship. He did not dig deep enough to learn if Emma Goldman had any remedy for the corruption of Electoral Political Culture (in too many countries).

    It is one thing to ‘analyze.’ It is one thing to ‘critique.’ But it is cowardice, laziness, BETRAYAL, to not suggest a REMEDY. At least, the author (who claims/pretends? opposition to the prevailing political structure, might hint at his/her recommended/favorite/remedial Political-Culture. Or say, clearly, that there is no cure or escape from culturally degrading SLAVERY (for the working folk).

    There is no Suggestion or Hint (there never is) for a CURE for what ails us.

    Whine! Show us how hopeless our position is. Do not fight! Do not vote (but do not do anything else). All resistance is impossible. Just bend over. ENJOY!!!

    No mention of -Lexington & Concord! Sons (and daughters) of Liberty! not even Thomas Jefferson’s-

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal… governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles…”

    The author makes claim to Patriotism, but to who or what is missing. He finishes!

    It doesn’t matter what I want. The forces directing this are far bigger than me. I’m a Neo-wannabe floating helplessly in the protoplasmic currents of the Rothschild-Rockefeller Satanic Matrix. All I can do is heed the old convict proverb: “Do your number one day at a time.”

    The author is finished. He has announced his surrender. Is he advocating that We-The-People join him in the Prison he has described? By comparison, Statesman Ron Paul is lightyears ahead. Unlike Solomon, Paul has not announced his surrender.

    How should society be organized? Have you noticed that there are no articles on that subject on this website? Mine are not allowed!

    I have a pain! What is the CURE Doctor?

    The population is degenerate and degenerating. Some of this is dysgenics, some of it the education system, plenty of it is related to the sexualization of the culture, certainly some of it derives from the accelerating debasement of the currency, but overall it is related to the general confusion in people’s outlooks which is more and more often leading them to choose pleasure (that is, addictions) over happiness (human bonds).

    An addicted society (addicted to porn, drugs, alcohol, eating, tv, shopping, attention, gambling, device screens, internet bullying…) is bound to be a degenerate society.

    What a great article!

    I’m somewhat surprised, given the unrelenting, overwhelming stream of pro-state fantasist “government knows best” gibberish that this site manages to churn out, day in and day out.

    And yes, voting is pretty much a waste of time, given the er,”choices”.

    However, would I vote/support for a candidate who ran on the platform of drastically cutting the size of the federal government back down to its original constitutional limits, all in one “fell swoop”, so that it was around 95% smaller than it is today?

    Answer: Because I already know that “government is the problem, and never the solution”, and that : “that government is best which governs least”, , and, that therefor, less government means more freedom, and despite the fact that I’m an anarcho-libertarian who prefers that no governments existed, my answer would be “yes”, I would vote for such a candidate – despite the fact that I’d know that I was still ultimately probably wasting my time [ unless, miraculously, a sufficient number of others made the same voting choice].

    The last time there was such a candidate in the US was in 1996 and 2000, when the Libertarian Harry Browne ran for president. [Forget Ron Paul, he’s just a piecemeal, watered down version of Harry Browne – i.e., Harry Browne “lite”]

    I fully supported Browne them, and I would fully support a similar ,”cut the federal government back down to its original constitutional functions/limits, NOW”, totally committed candidate today, despite the fact that I’d know, as I did back in 1996 and 2000, that my support would most likely ultimately be a waste of time, although, if enough others did the same, it would at least send this message:

    “This governments grown too big for its boots
    We’ve got to cut it back down, back down to the roots
    Its taken most all of our freedoms away
    There ain’t much freedom left in the US today”

    Chorus: “We’ve got to start us a new revolution
    And get back to the old constitution
    We’ve got to stand up and fight for the whole Bill of Rights
    Its time to start over again”

    We still have tens of millions of Americans, not counting people elsewhere, who would gag on this if they bothered to grasp what it means: “floating helplessly in the protoplasmic currents of the Rothschild-Rockefeller Satanic Matrix.”

    Most would gag because they think this horror story not only is not about WASP power but that more WASP power will save the world. That is the biggest part of the self-imprisonment: thinking things WASP are your friend and savior rather that things WASP are allied inextricably with things Jewish and that the Anglo-Zionist partners intend to force all nations under their heel in some form and then start to really have fun torturing us.

    This process has been active since Anglo-Saxon Puritans realized that their Judaizing theology made it natural that they take fans from Jews to finance their rounds of evil against historic Christendom and its peoples. This process goes all the way back to archetypal WASP Oliver Cromwell and before that to 3 generations of English-speaking low church Protestant preachers. It became the most essential fact of British Empire finance with ‘The Glorious Revolution.’ And its vey power over the American Revolution was parade in the face of the world with the scam to have a very slightly modified flag of The British East India Company made the American nation flag – the Stars ands Stripes.

    Anglo-Zionism has controlled America as long as there has been an America. ‘Stars and Stripes’ ‘conservatism’ is owned by Anglo-Zionism. You cannot oppose this by thinking about ‘rights of an Englishman’ or ‘I am white.’ It is a spiritual war, and Anglo-Saxon Protestant culture is allied with Judaism under the direction of Satan.

    Quite a while ago, I suggested going into town on selection day and just stand there as a slight impediment to human traffic flow. Don’t say anything, don’t carry a sign, don’t do anything, just stand there. If enough people did that, others would eventually notice that there’s something going on and they would ask the statues what they were doing. That’s when the motivation could be made known.

    There were 150,000,000 people that voted out of an adult population of 210,000,000 in 2020. Simple arithmetic suggests that the vast majority believe in this scam and are too ignorant to understand the forces shaping their lives. With those numbers, the political class is safe in assuming they are firmly in control. They will keep spending, keep initiating wars, keep murdering foreigners till economic reality causes a halt.

    When that wall at the back of the theater smacks voters in the face is when they will wise up. They will have lost their life saving, their paper investments denominated in paper dollars will be near worthless, their retirement savings gone, Social Security checks won’t buy anything, their home equity meaningless when they can’t pay their real estate taxes, etc.

    This has happened numerous times in the past when the world had less debt and fewer people but with more of them capable of self sufficiency at least in some regard. Today, the majority have no survival skills because they have been taught to be dependent on a system designed to enslave them. Voting is their complicity in slow suicide like the alcoholic and his whiskey bottle.

    I’m inclined to agree with you, after the unusually large and brazen systematic vote fraud in 2020 and 2022, that voting will not be allowed to change things much, at least not at the federal level.

    But if someone doesn’t vote, it doesn’t send any particular message. No way to know whether the non-voter is lazy and apathetic or “making a point.”

    Better for tens of millions of non-voters to vote, and vote for anyone other than Democrats and Republicans.

    Tens of millions of votes for parties — Constitution, Green, Libertarian, whatever — demanding the repeal of all federal “mandates”, the abolition of the FBI, DEA and ATF, the closure of US foreign military bases, the downsizing of the military bureaucracy, and the end of US wars, occupations, and sanctions abroad.

    For thirteen years the American republic and the (((EIC))) of Bombay (that of London was but a subsidiary : two thirds of the company’s fleet was Indian-made) bore the very selfsame flag, the Sassoon ensign : 13 stripes and 13 stars in circle. Officially the reason given was the Tea Party of Boston : The tea carrying vessel flag was made official as that of the new rebel nation. In reality the EIC offered to take over and provide the administration. It must be known that the EIC was a Jewish company issuing from Persia and that the Sassoon dynasty that held it claimed of the Second (Babylonian) exile. For them England was a despicable place in the West to be exploited for industrial outsourcing as their aim was to destroy the all too prosperous Indian industry. British control of certain cities was only nominal : don’t fall for the fable that only 17 000 Britishers could subdue a whole subcontinent : they could enjoy the high life of India only in as much as they did the job for the EIC which was the only sovereign entity. As soon as these Britishers set foot they lost all their traditional rights as British subjects, they were subject to the (((EIC))) in the same way any British businessman doing business in Soviet Russia was subject to the communist party, not to English law.

    The American revolution started essentially as a take-over of the American continent by the EIC. The (((company))) (together with many allied local businessmen but not the modest citizens) refused to pay their contributions to care for the numerous disabled the Seven Years Wars had made and what they demanded was the same sovereign company status. France had to be put to financial contribution and the Constitution was drawn to please the Parisian intellectual avant-garde public, not the American public who was not interested in that kind of utopian schemes. Don’t fall for that separation of powers thing : it was well understood that everybody in the government was to come from the same close-knit oligarchy chosen by the company. The separation of power branches was to prevent not a dictatorship but somebody from without the compact from taking over by surfing a wave of popular discontent.

    If someone criticizes, but offers no alternative, or fix, then they are just ranting. There is no crime in complaining, but in a serious discussion/examination of politics, of political organization, there should be offered (detailed) solutions for what ails the complainer.

    The Kennedy brothers (and many other leaders), were assassinated for a reason, and by the same Oligarchs. The key clue – as to who were the perpetrators, is the similar pattern of their assassination, combined with a media/government COVERUP that continues to this day. Now, who possesses that power? Who controls both government and media?

    Not voting in rigged elections, in elections between corrupt factions that serve the same Powers, the same domestic and Foreign Oligarchs, is the correct approach. However, it is advisable to fix the problem, rather than let it fester. Solomon insists that it is impossible to fix the problem. He has decided to survive as best he can in our post-Orwellian -1984 – our 2002.

    I’m a Neo-wannabe floating helplessly in the protoplasmic currents of the Rothschild-Rockefeller Satanic Matrix.

    He names 2 of the most powerful Oligarch clans, and correctly describes them as operating a “Satanic Matrix.” He insists that they are too powerful to resist. Hmm! Is that why he wrote this article? To tell us that?

    One who refuses to vote for the gauleiters, should realize that this “Satanic Matrix” is so unnatural, so horribly evil, so damaging to our children, that we have only one option: That option is to RESIST.

    Politicization is so effective at manipulating the populace because most people emotionally connect their personal belief system to the belief system of their political party, and so then any attack on their party – legitimate or otherwise – is interpreted by their brain as an attack on themselves. Reason and logic then jump out the nearest window as raw emotion takes the helm, thus making them even more susceptible to the predatory controlling influences.

    If low voter turnout threatened the regime’s legitimacy, the regime would simply manufacture whatever level of voter participation that it needed.

    If you reference the stolen elections of 2020 and 2022, that same Republican would simply quote a grifting commentator/writer whose financial interests depend on maintaining the illusion of free and fair elections or non-violent reform.

This article may have been entertaining to read, but it offered nothing instructive and was basically preaching to the choir. How do we remove the entrenched mechanisms like the IRS, payroll taxes, and the FED that enable this corrupt system to perpetuate? Going back to bartering? Armed revolt? Secession?

    One theory I’ve heard about Trump’s 2016 victory is that the democrat machine was so overconfident of a Clinton victory (all the polls showed it) that they fell asleep in the battleground states, which led to his Electoral College victory though he lost the popular vote. So, Hillary and her neoliberal plotters, which included establishment republicans, spent the next four years undermining his agenda.

    That “glitch in the Matrix” was a one-off. The democrat machine took full advantage of the Covid scam to bring about, with little republican objection, mass no questions asked mail-in voting. Now its apparently here to stay, as will be the democrat majority, and the end of the Republic. My suspicion is that the R Team was allowed to take the House in a squeaker (it as supposed to be a Red Wave) because the powers- that-be were sick and tired of dimwitted Pelosi as Speaker. With both a senile president and a know-nothing VP, it was a little much to also have the 2nd in line to be president a crazy octogenarian with a husband who cruises gay bars and picks up homeless drug addicts for kicks. Clown World doesn’t quite cover it.

    The entire Fed Gov will fail as the Dollar fails. Their costumed enforcers won’t work for free, so their enforcement mechanisms will fail. There will be 300 million pissed off people that will see their wealth evaporate due to purposeful gov’t corruption. It’s at that point that people will realize that the entire Fed Gov has been a negative influence for at least the last 50 years. I expect governors to quickly realize that being president of Texas sounds better than governor of Texas, for example, and once that precedent has been let loose, it’s all over.

    I’ve linked to “The Tiny Dot” video by Larken Rose several times and suggest people view it to understand where the real power is. The Fed Gov and all gov’ts run on bluff. They make up some bullshit they call law and people go along, until they don’t. Some jerk cop shows up with a badge and an attitude and people give in, until they don’t. That’s what’s coming – push back.

    If, for example, the truckers decided to simply stop driving and sat on the couch for the next 3 months, the entire economy would grind to a halt and no crime would have been committed. The people lack an understanding of their own strength if they want to use it. As the decent hard working people that are the backbone of the economy figure out how badly they are about to be screwed by the economists, bankers, politicians, and their hangers on, there will be blood. There are more guns in the country than people. It doesn’t take a clairvoyant to predict violence.

  108. It ain’t something exclusive to the regimes and entities making up the terrorist USEUNATO conglomerate, since in the broader geopolitical landscape, Russia/China play the same role of putting forward fake “choices”, not for national electoral circuses but for UN member states. For example, days before the Biden-Xi meeting, delegations from both regimes met in NYC with the US one led by “friend of China”, according to the China delegation, Maurice Greenberg, the Rockefeller Trilateral Commission board member. In the Russian case, not only is Putin selling fuel to EUkraine’s Western sponsors directly or thru third parties like the Turks and Chinese, but at the G20, his delegation signed up for a WHO-managed “global pandemic fund” along with the US-led terrorists which Russia and China, at every chance possible, accuse of bioterrorism and creating the covid virus to sell headlines thru their state media and Western sycophants.

    Buying resold Russian fuels helps worsen the crises managed by entities like the UN/WHO, while the Chinese, like Japan and South Korea, owe their development to the maneuvers of Western established power, so the entire thing a magnified version of the circus of US democracy.

    The idea that a country whose “founding fathers” were slave-drivers actually offers any “choice” is beyond laughable nonetheless.

And once their candidates win by a landslide, and they demand concentration camps for all the ‘racists,’ ‘anti-Semites,’ and MAGA folks, then what?

    Seriously, are the democrats going to stop and ponder the message we are sending them by not voting? Most of these people couldn’t think themselves out of a paper bag. They will not draw any worthwhile conclusions from any of it other than they won – and now it’s time for their payback! They will seek to punish every one of us. They will not be assuaged by reason either.

    The Jews will get everything they want. By not voting and forming a political resistance, we will essentially hand them all they want from us. And they will make sure to ‘reward’ us nicely for it too.

    Perhaps someone’s going to suggest that the non-voters will unite and fight off the government. Sure, that will do a lot of good, and a whole lot of our people will be killed as a result. Half of the population in America can’t even agree on what constitutes a marriage or gender. Most Americans have been dumbed-down too badly to even understand our points. Racially conscious Whites are also too busy with constant infighting among themselves, so the likelihood of them uniting in any significant way is slim at best.

    Granted, the Republicans are nothing to praise, but by them filling seats in both the House and Senate, we at least maintain a congressional gridlock until the situation improves.

    The good news is that there’s a growing resistance within the Republican Party, and we are making some headway. Granted, it’s not where I want it to be, but to simply throw up our hands and declare “Don’t Vote!” will place us on a pathway full of even greater troubles.

Perhaps he will do so in a follow-up article, but there’s nothing concrete in this particular article.

And once their candidates win by a landslide, and they demand concentration camps for all the ‘racists,’ ‘anti-Semites,’ and MAGA folks, then what?

    Our non-voting amounts to non-resistance in the public sphere, an admission of sorts that the democrats have better ideas and solutions to our problems. And that’s exactly how the average American simpleton is going to read our complete abandonment of our voting rights.

    Don’t expect the democrats to sympathize with us either. Seriously, do you think the democrats are going to stop and ponder the message we are sending them by not voting? Will they come to their collective senses once we declare that we’re no longer playing the charade of voting? Most of these people couldn’t think themselves out of a paper bag.

They will proudly declare that we have surrendered and have discovered the wisdom of submitting to their great plans for us.

    In spite of all his faults (and there are many!), Trump at least awakened millions concerning the Washington Swamp and illegal immigration. Racial issues that republicans refused to even entertain just seven years ago, many are now discussing openly. Whites in America are becoming more politically informed, and a growing number of them have a great distrust in their government.

    With all due respect to the author, I seriously doubt that a complete abandonment of voting is the answer to our problems. Throwing up our hands and refusing to participate sounds good in theory when one is deeply frustrated, but it will hardly do any useful service to our people and future generations of White Americans.

    I don’t endorse force. Leadership, true leadership, is nowhere to be found in the political realm. What passes for leadership is some mafia Don conscripting his own citizenry to fight a war he started in the most asinine fashion possible. Many here endorse what is outright naked slavery because a politician does it as opposed to some plantation owner. They brush aside the civilians being killed and root for the typical sociopath that heads every major State. I just don’t accord any special privilege to some asshole “leader”.

    What you see coming must be what I see, chaos. Once the SHTF, there won’t be enough street cops anywhere to handle the crime that’s likely to appear. Cops will quit en masse to protect their families spurred on when their checks no longer buy enough once price inflation really starts galloping. Weimar, Argentina, Zimbabwe are likely to be repeated in the US and everywhere simultaneously when the interconnected banking systems finally pay the price for their currency Ponzi schemes.

    The “usual suspects” will be the first to riot and burn down their neighborhoods when their welfare checks don’t buy enough or even anything eventually. The average person has been trained like a circus seal to act according to the script that the idiocy of “law” provides and as such many will die at the hands of the miscreants the State actively encourages and protects. Even those with guns will hesitate using them as the business owners demonstrated during the blm and antifa rioting. I and many others won’t hesitate for one second to neutralize any threat that comes my way. That example will wake people up to realize their true rights as opposed to the State propaganda they’ve ingested. It’s that awakening that the State fears most since once activated, there’s no way to unlearn the truth.

    You do not know and will never know who the Remnant are, or where they are, or how many of them there are, or what they are doing or will do. Two things you do know, and no more: first that they exist; second, that they will find you.

People will continue acting like children until an existential crisis forces them to act differently. That crisis lays ahead for the US as the bulk of the world sends all those long term sequestered dollars back to the US to drive up price inflation at a rate the Fed has no possibility of handling.

    It is hopeless and pointless unless an independent political party that truly focuses on America and Americans can be on the ballot. Voting for the R instead of the D only slows the speed of the inevitable decline and the reckoning. Such a reckoning, if ever it comes to pass, becomes the more difficult to win for the historic American nation as millions more non-Americans immigrate to the nation and are brainwashed into hating whitey.

In light of the extreme unpopularity of the Biden administration and the radical agenda embraced by Democrats, such as the govt paying for military sex change operations, is there a shred of credibility in this ostensible Democrat win? And yet, the leader of the GOP contingent in the statehouse, Jason Wentworth, called an attempt by one of his GOP colleagues to secure subpoena power to investigate 2022 election fraud “a shameless and half-baked political stunt”. The Republican party is guilty of treason. This leaves the dissatisfied citizen only 1 electoral alternative to revolution: a new 3rd party. Voters must abandon the Republican party en-masse and back a new 3rd party candidate.

    As I’ve said about myself, many times, “[T]he older I get, the better I used to be.” In the ’70’s I worked three rotating shifts in a steel mill for six years. I could just start getting used to one shift when the next one started. Not fun, but it did pay rather well for the time and place.

    If someone criticizes, but offers no alternative, or fix, then they are just ranting.

    Followed by:

    That option is to RESIST.

    Thanks for the detailed map leading to the exit.

    I believe it is illegal to call for the overthrow of governments and is why no one does it. TPTsB have concocted a system where even thinking about solutions and expressing them becomes a crime. Organizing is controlled by the corporation through censorship and propaganda. Common sense should indicate that the only option the individual has is to formulate his own plan suitable to his situation but many, if not most, don’t know where to begin. I decided to leave the US and deny the country my expertise and tax money, all very legal, but not an option for most.

    The criticism is designed to make people think for themselves, to suggest different modes of thinking they never before considered. People like Spooner, Nock, Mencken, Rand, Burke, Abbey, Chodorov, Bastiat, Spencer and many others are almost completely unknown to the normies that vote to select their next warden. How many have read G. Edward Griffin’s The Creature from Jekyll Island to get an understanding of how the current US system originated and how it controls their lives to this very day by means they instinctively know exist but can’t identify? How many even heard of the book?

    Criticism is the eye opener for many to start investigating and possibly eventually thinking as opposed to emoting. That’s it’s value.

    Of course, you are correct. I was not criticizing – criticizing. It is just that on many forums, such as this, the discussion ends there, and Solutions are not suggested.

    You are relying on a template which is not accurate for most of human history.

    Usually there are no good solutions–just more tyrannical “leaders” who overthrow the previous tyrants.

    You are not in Kansas anymore…

    How dare you – for disagreeing with me! Do you think this is an open forum?

    The template I used – teaching History was always accurate! Says me!

    Unfortunately, your observation is usually correct.

    I rely on a Dream. I recall the brilliance of the first Revolutionary, Thomas Jefferson.

    Leon Trotsky, who was often far tooo dogmatic, (he was assassinated in 1940), wrote a highly influential book, Permanent Revolution. His point was that your observation is correct (yes I know you were not born yet); his observation was that Revolutions must be constantly refreshed, or your prediction (of Permanent -unavoidable- Tyranny), would become the only Historical reality.

    In any Republic, restored or not, Citizens must keep an active watch/role/eternal vigil on their Government, in order to maintain their LIBERTY.

    Trotsky was not the originator of this theory.

    The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

    Mao was a permanent revolutionary, too. As long as greedy, vicious, arseholes are born, humanity is in peril. We need genetic tests to identify the shits in utero. And societies that keep any who escape attention from ever nearing power.
