After a long illness the Liberal Class faded away. It died after decades of being morbidly dysfunctional. It was often out of its mind with delirium, and with periods of being semi-comatose. It had suffered from physical deterioration, mental depression and hallucinations of its former grandeur.

An autopsy was performed to determine the exact cause of death. Political scientists wanted to examine the corpse for underlying pathologies and their progression. The information may prove useful to future social movements. Hopefully, future generations can be saved from the tragic fate of the Old Liberal Class. The peaceful protests against riotous police violence gives one some hope for the next generation.

Survivors of the Liberal Class are Identity Politics and Political Correctness. The relatives were left squabbling over Liberal’s legacy. The Biden faction claims that it is the sole legitimate heir. The Sanders faction is begging for the silverware set. The pro-maskers and anti-maskers are in an angry Twitter feud. Identity politics, political correctness, incrementalism, and mainstream Democrats are demanding their share of the estate. The middle class was left with nothing but broken promises. The working class and the poor had become estranged from the Liberal Class for many years, and were cut out of the will entirely.

The 100-year-old body of the Liberal Class had many wounds. In its younger days it had won some milestone battles: organizing labor, the 40-hour work week, a minimum wage, women suffrage, child labor laws, Social Security, Medicare, the Civil Rights Movement, and protests against the Vietnam War were just a few. Battles lost were to McCarthyism, COINTELPRO, the wars on drugs and crime, mass incarceration, Latin American death squads, privatization, corporatism, and international imperialism.

In later years the Liberal Class grew fat, dull and lazy. Fast-food, slow metabolism, consumerism, too much screen time and its decrepit age had severely weakened its immune system. A mussy brain caused ambivalence, confusion, and senility. The heart was broken from waiting for hope and change, which never came. Psychologically the Liberal Class simply gave up the fight.

Chris Hedges, in his book The Death of the Liberal Class, had speculated that the cause of death was gullibility. This was a contributing factor. Liberalism had been foolish enough to believe that it could change the political class from within the system. It had believed that elections and voting for the lesser evil would buy it time. The priority was always to vote for the lesser evil in THIS election, while waiting for the messiah to appear in the NEXT election.

The Liberal Class believed in many false messiahs. In 1976 it elected Jimmy Carter. The 1976 election took place when the Vietnam War and Watergate were still fresh in the political mind. The economy was in a shambles, and there was an oil crisis. Hyper-inflation and recession were a new phenomenon called stagflation. Liberalism hoped Carter would be the Promised One.

Carter attacked the energy crisis by calling for conservation and solar energy. He wore a sweater and turned off the lights. He put solar panels on the White House roof. Carter acted as if he was a God-fearing pious man. He talked about peace in the Middle East, and nuclear arms reduction.

In the end, Carter was undone by a feud with his own liberal political party, and he was angry with the American people whom he scolded for having a “moral malaise”. A hostile mainstream media ridiculed him and made him a laughing stock. On top of that was the Iran Hostage Crisis—

Despite Carter’s come-to-Jesus lecturing he was defeated in the 1980 election by a Hollywood “B” movie actor, pitchman for General Electric and drugstore cowboy named Ronald Reagan. Undiagnosed at the time, Carter left the Liberal Class with a malignant tumor. It metastasized in the twenty-first century into the War on Terror.

Carter and his National Security Advisor, the great-game aficionado Zbigniew Brzezinski armed a band of terrorists in Afghanistan. Brzezinski later bragged that he and Carter egged the Soviet Union into a Vietnam-style war. Revenge seemed so sweet at the time. Instead the U.S. was later hoisted by its own petard into wars that would never end.

Carter’s Afghan war lead to the destruction of that developing nation. Afghan women were launched back into the future of the 13th century, and the war killed over a million Afghan men, women and children. Carter’s chickens hatched into the attacks on the U.S. of September 11, 2001. For over forty years Afghanistan has been a humanitarian disaster, because of a liberal president’s meddling.

After 12 years in the wilderness of Reaganomics, Thatcherism, and Papa Bush, the Liberal Class thought that it had been sent another messiah by the name of William Jefferson Clinton. Clinton was from Hope– Hope, Arkansas. Hope was the Liberal Class’s drug of choice. It kept looking for higher-highs, and instead got lower-lows.

Clinton was a New Democrat: What the New Democratic Coalition called being committed to pro-economic growth, pro-innovation, and fiscally responsible policies. In other words, Clinton was a neoliberal in sheep’s clothing. It was even said that Clinton was the first black president, even though he was as white as sliced bread.[2]Comment, Toni Morrison, The New Yorker, September 28, 1998. ( https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/1998/10/05/comment-6543 )

Clinton slashed welfare for the poor, and flooded the prison population with African Americans. Clinton waxed eloquent about the middle class, and the Liberal Class stopped caring about the downtrodden. There was a Democrat in the White House, and the Liberal Class was loyal to the Democratic Party. Liberalism stopped caring about the problems that society created. As Senator Joe Biden said of his 1994 crime bill, “I don’t care; LOCK THEM UP”. The words PREDATORS and THEM were code for young Black men.

In the 2019 Democratic presidential debates Senator Cory Booker called Joe Biden out:

“There are people right now in prison for life for drug offenses, because you stood up and used that tough-on-crime phony rhetoric that got a lot of people elected but destroyed communities like mine.”[3]“The Crime-Bill Debate Shows How Short Americans’ Memories Are”, The Atlantic, September 12, 2019. (https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2019/09...547/).

Biden’s tough-on-crime speech was the most crude and racist speech made on the Senate floor in modern history. Southern racist senators Strom Thurmond and Richard Russell would have been proud. They were used to the Ku Klux Klan holding Blacks down. Now the police would do it.

LISTEN HERE to Senator Strom Thurman’s racist 1957 24-hour talking filibuster against the 1957 Civil Rights Act.[4]“The Racist Filibuster We Can’t Afford to Forget”, The Takaway Podcast, New York Public Radio, WNYC Studios, August 29, 2016. ( https://www.wnycstudios.org/podcasts/takeaway/segmen...forget ). The following quote was then enough to make the youthful Liberal Class’s hair stand on end:

“There’s not enough troops in the army, to force the southern people to break down segregation and admit the nigger race into our theaters, into our swimming pools, into our homes, and into our churches—”

In the 1990s liberalism forgot about the 1960’s Civil Rights and Antiwar Movements. Clinton’s “crime bills” were crimes against humanity. The laws broadened the death penalty to 60 more crimes, and three strikes mandated life-time sentences. Clinton financed building more prisons, and locking up millions of people, disproportionately Black and Poor. Clinton and the Liberal Class ushered in the New Jim Crow.[5]The New Jim Crow, Mass Incarceration in the age of Colorblindness, by Michelle Alexander. Website https://newjimcrow.com/ .[6]“Three Strikes Basics”, Stanford Law School. ( https://law.stanford.edu/stanford-justice-advocacy-p...asics/ )

Clinton signed NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), which hastened deindustrialization, and the loss of good-paying jobs for the working class. He deregulated Wall Street, which lead to the 2008 financial collapse of the banking industry and the Great Recession. That economic meltdown resulted in the loss of 8.5 million jobs, 3 million families being kicked out of their homes, and a massive transfer of wealth to the rich. It was the worst recession since the 1930’s Great Depression.

Clinton signed into law the “Iraq Liberation Act of 1998”, which was used as the legal cover by George Bush to invade Iraq in 2003. By 1995 Clinton’s economic strangulation of Iraq killed 500,000 Iraqi children. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said it was “worth it”, since it furthered U.S. foreign policy. So they killed a million more from cholera, typhoid, and starvation.

Clinton’s shredding of the social contract was no surprise to the Liberal Class. It was one of Clinton’s 1992 campaign promises to “restructure the social safety net”. Clinton promised to “end welfare as we know it“, and he did.[7]“How Bill Clinton’s Welfare Reform Changed America”, History.com, August 29, 2019. ( https://www.history.com/news/clinton-1990s-welfare-r...-facts ).

Clinton made it tougher for the poor to qualify for benefits, he set lifetime limits, and punted the responsibility for social programs to the states, without giving them the adequate federal block grants to fund it. The Liberal Class did not object because a Democrat did it.

In 2000 George W. Bush started his criminal presidential enterprise by stealing the needed Florida electoral votes from Al Gore. The U.S. Supreme Court declared that recounting the infamous “hanging chads” violated the U.S. Constitution. Gore could have petitioned the Florida Supreme Court for a total recount of the state, but the Liberal Class advised him not to. It said that a recount would cause a tremendous uproar, make liberals look like spoilsports, and harm our democracy. So Gore conceded the purloined presidency to George W. Bush.[8]“Hanging Chads: As the Florida Recount Implodes, the Supreme Court Decides Bush v. Gore”, U.S. News and World Report, January 17, 2008. ( https://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2008/01/17/the-...-chads ).

After the attacks on the US of September 11, 2001, the Liberal Class voted in a joint resolution to give Bush the Authorization for the Use of Military Force. Democrat Barbara Jean Lee was the single vote against it.[9]H.J.Res. 64 (107th): Authorization for Use of Military Force, GovTrac, September 14, 2001. ( https://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/107-2001/h342 ). Bush’s War on Terror was on. Bush used the authorization to invade Afghanistan. The last big anti-war hurrah for the Liberal Class was in February 2003 against the planned illegal invasion of Iraq. The Liberal Class’s new enthusiasm for antiwar protests was short-lived.

As the oligarch class and their servants pulled one illegal outrage after another the Liberal Class barely made a whimper. Assassinations, torture, kidnappings, indefinite detention, illegal covert operations, domestic spying, persecuting and torturing whistleblowers, and shredding the Bill of Rights were overlooked and even abetted by Democrats. The Liberal Class begged for authoritarianism to keep the country safe from terrorists; the Constitution be damned!

Today George Bush is being rehabilitated as a great president who just made a few mistakes. The Liberal Class forgot that Bush is a war criminal, committed crimes against humanity, and tightened the fascist grip on the U.S.A. Bush killed and destroyed millions of lives, and what was left of U.S. democracy.

Ellen DeGeneres says we should be kind to war criminals even if we disagree with them. The Liberal Class agreed and said that forgiveness is what America is all about.

The Liberal Class thought that the messiah had finally arrived when Barack Hussein Obama was elected president. The Liberal Class believed Obama’s lies and hoped his promises of change were true. Unbeknownst, Obama had already sold out to Wall Street, the health-insurance industry, and Big Pharma. Obama went on to leveraged Bush’s authoritarianism to beat down the middle class and poor. He did nothing for Blacks.

Obama went from bombing three countries to bombing seven. He made Bush’s tax-cuts for the oligarchs permanent. He continued the programs of assassinations, extraordinary-renditions, secret prisons, secret terrorist mercenaries, secret wars and regime-change projects.

Obama turned the New Cold War into a hotter war with Russia and China. He overthrew elected governments in Ukraine, Egypt, and Honduras. He pivoted to Asia. He destroyed the welfare state in Libya. Even Obama could not keep a straight face when he declared Venezuela a threat to the U.S. national security.

Obama is a war criminal. He committed crimes against humanity, and he killed and destroyed millions of lives. GITMO still stands as an avatar to his lies. He illegally prosecuted more whistleblowers, deported more undocumented immigrants, transferred more wealth to the rich, and militarized the police more than all previous presidents combined. Obama is the reason Trump was elected in 2016. Still, the Liberal Class adored him.

Conclusion

The Liberal Class died from irrelevance— a disease from the 1960s that afflicted liberals then over the age of 30. Dementia set in during the 1990s. The Liberal Class became brain dead in 2008. Trump-Derangement Syndrome took over its subconscious mind in 2016. Russiagate brought on a near-fatal attack of hysteria. Paralysis set in when Joe Biden became the Democratic Party’s presumptive nominee. Covid-19 caused Liberalism’s internal organs to start shutting down. The Liberal Class died because it had no purpose in life, lost the will to live, and just faded away.

Funeral services will NOT be held since The Liberal Class’s friends and relatives have prior commitments with Democratic Talking Points. The Liberal Class left a note asking that instead of flowers, contributions be sent to Bernie or Bust 2024.

  1. I’m not a “liberal” in the modern sense of that term, but many of your points here can not be ignored.

    In the past, when liberals made some valid criticisms of America, it was too easy to be suspicious of their motives since they made it clear that their ideal was the Soviet Union, that charnel house! Also, the “solution” they advocated was usually worse than the problems they complained about.

    Great article, reminds me of Max Eastman’s “Reflections On The Failure Of Socialism”.

  2. Not that I even know what liberals are anymore.

    But “fast-food, slow metabolism, consumerism, too much screen time and its decrepit age”?

    That describes conservatives to a t.

    You people just write shit and get paid for it. A retard could write a better article.

  3. Tony Hall says:

    Very deceptive history. Very vague on 9/11, avoiding always any mention of the role of Israel and the Israel Lobby in the saga. Was Bernard Lewis more important than Carter in directing the US intervention in Eurasia? Was Lewis the real architect of War on Terror psychological warfare before and after 9/11? Was Lewis, the original author of the Clash of Civilizations thesis, the imaginative source inventing the Osama bin Laden illusions that the Left swallowed hook, line and sinker? The blind spots of Pear remind me of the blind spots of Hedges.

    Nice article, and a good reminder how Clinton on one side of the Atlantic, and the Blair witch on the other, facilitated the great oligarchic convergence of politics into a single-party system. It no longer mattered if you vote Tory or Labor, or Dem or Rep–the end result was the same in both internal and foreign affairs, barring some surface theatrics appealing to specific voter groups.

    I blame the fall of the Soviet Empire. It really made a lot of voters think that their system is therefore the best ever, and that all they need to do is keep going into the same direction. The oligarchs were more than happy to use this as cover to hollow out the US and UK.

    But at least there’s this: as the heritage white working class and provincial middle class of the US was frozen out of the conversation, this placed them into a center of rising hate from all other sides, but inside this bubble they remained sane. Not unlike the Eastern Europeans are now the only sane people on their continent, due to similar historic ironies.

    Let’s see if these reserves of common sense sanity in both the New and Old worlds can still be leveraged in some productive ways.

  6. ‘In the 2019 Democratic presidential debates Senator Cory Booker called Joe Biden out:

    “There are people right now in prison for life for drug offenses, because you stood up and used that tough-on-crime phony rhetoric that got a lot of people elected but destroyed communities like mine.”

    Cory Booker was the child of two IBM executives and raised in Harrington Park, New Jersey. Harrington Park is less than one percent black and as of 2010 had a median household income of $115,000.

    How did Biden’s ‘tough on crime’ rhetoric destroy Harrington Park?

  10. Not a bad article. A little more definition of “Liberal” might have been useful.
    Clinton — what a shit that man was: but the R’s had to go & generate sympathy for him with all that ridiculous “zipper problem” & Star chamber business. Clinton was useful: anyone who after Clinton thought there was more than the “dime’s worth of difference” between the Dem’s & Rep’s was unconditionally delusional. (Although, millions then voted for “hope & change” demonstrating just how mad many people actually are).
    And then Gore — my God, has there ever been a greater example of political gutlessness ? (Imagine Trump sitting still for that kind of shafting ?).
    Liberalism — Liberals were so fucking stupid: they actually thought “neoliberal” merely meant a “new” , more progressive kind of Liberalism. Fucking Idiots.

  11. I don’t have the slightest idea who is the complete imbecile who wrote this article, but judging by the very definition that most white turds (Malla “The Curry Nigger” is excluded of course) on this site have of “liberalism”, namely the demise of whiteness, it has succeeded beyond it’s wildest dreams. Non-whites are 150 million in the US and counting while white “murica” is gasping for oxygen. Liberalism will only die after the last of the white trash is kicked off the cliff, so don’t be optimistic.

    There is no liberal class any more than there is a conservative class. Left unsaid in this article is that liberals in the usa essentially morphed into conservatives and became the same oligarch front men. That is the major liberal failing, they turned more to the right. The politicking of israels obama regime was repeated by israels trump regime. Obama had hope and change, trump had maga, obama was antiwar, trump was antwar, etc.

    This article was obviously written by yet another “liberal” idiot.

    This just in: Modern liberalism is the complete opposite of what the original term stood for.

    Classical liberalism was about very small, constitutionally limited governments, [and therefor low taxes], and not the imposition on society of boondoggle scams and idiocies such as mandated unions, mandated maximum hours to be worked per week, mandated minimum wages, mandated Social Security, Medicare, etc. etc., all of which fueled the growth of government, and thus ever more taxation and regulation, and the almost complete erosion of individual liberties.

    Kill “Liberalism” Now!

    This is a war. The idea of modern “liberalism” [i.e statism, the complete antithesis of the original term], needs to be killed, along with all of the anti-freedom, “I love government” big government, “government to the rescue” liberals/socialists/Marxist/communatard/ fascists who forever wallow in such idiocies, and the sooner the better. Fuck em all. May they all rot in hell.

  17. Some more results of this process which we see today:

    1- The liberal class treats John McCain and Shimon Peres and other criminals as true saints who deserve to be praised, sung and honoured. Livni has just got a peace prize in Germany!!!

    2- Comey, Brennan, Mueller and others are taken to be serious and honest public servants who deserve utmost respect from everybody.

    3- When someone who is completely crazy like Bolton is fired he is called in the liberal press”the last adult in the room”. Now that he publishes an irrelevant book everybody jumps happly as if this were a new Gospel.

    Liberals really never did understand what they were. That’s why they always wanted a new name. Now, they’re trying “Progressive”.

    The strongest party in the West now is the government party. That party has been in power since 1932 and it only grows stronger and more pervasive. It’s that party, with its experts, that’s given you $7T in counterfeit spending, global warming and Covid19. Just this year. It’s also given us every war we’ve thrown ourselves into from WWII on. It will soon suck us dry like a beached whale.

    Liberalism, Conservatism, Socialism, Libertarianism. Those are just marketing devices for the State.

    Zionism is the thread running from 1913 to today, the pernicious and destructive DNA hiding behind the pathologies it causes.

    White millennials who take the knee to thugs were taught holocaustism as history; they now delight in tearing down Thomas Jefferson and even George Washington’s statue.

    The peaceful protests against riotous police violence gives one some hope for the next generation.

    Riotous police violence was far more of a problem in the early 1990s with the federal atrocities at Ruby Ridge and Waco. But the libs were mostly OK with that violence because at was directed at people they don’t like.

    Today we have the Jewish MSM cherry-picking a handful of incidents of the type that are inevitable in a conflict-ridden heterogeneous “society” of 330 million humans, exploiting those them to the max via endless repetition and neo-Bolshevik propagandizing and using them to manufacture an atmosphere that causes mass psychosis leading to rioting, looting and general destruction. The resulting “peaceful protests” by useful idiots amount to nothing more than Jews cracking down on white Goyim who might be construed as dissenters to the current Jewish neolberal regime. This all should be obvious even to the disingenuous POS who is the author of this piece.

    Sailer explains this better than I ever could:
    https://www.takimag.com/article/22080/

    As I’ve pointed out, The Narrative is pushed less by printing fake news or by completely censoring true news than by the power of the prestige press to pick out ideologically convenient items from the vast surfeit of events and declare them the news about which we are all supposed to have a “conversation.”

    Did, say, a Catholic schoolboy “smirk” at a “tribal elder”?

    Now, that’s national news!

    In contrast, in the wake of the vaunted Black Lives Matter protests in Ferguson, did four Teens of Color in St. Louis, shouting “Kill the white people,” hammer a white man to death?

    Why are you interested in a local police blotter detail?

    And if there is a lot of news for powerful interests to pick and choose amongst, there’s even more history.

    Which anniversaries are treated as late-breaking news and which are seen as mere dusty arcana is another exercise in Narrative supremacy.

    Consider an example of a dog that has barely been allowed to bark: A number of milestones in Christendom’s heroic struggle to stamp out Islamic slave raiding, such as Thomas Jefferson dispatching the U.S. Marines to “the shores of Tripoli” in 1804 and the Royal Navy freeing 3,000 European slaves from Algiers in 1816, have passed quietly in this century with only minimal 200th-anniversary media commemorations.

    “If there is a lot of news for powerful interests to pick and choose amongst, there’s even more history.”
    Calling attention to the West’s long, ultimately successful struggle against Muslim slaving is not encouraged because it might be conducive to Islamophobia, which, as the word explains, is bad. On the other hand, obsessing over white American slaving is good, because if it were at all bad then there would exist a word for it ending in “-phobia.” But there doesn’t, so how can you even mention it?

    Of course, the Times’ trope that America’s “true founding” was the arrival of blacks in 1619 contradicts another fashionable bit of hype: that America is a Nation of Immigrants instituted by the huddled masses of wretched refuse on Ellis Island.

    As we’ve all been instructed in recent decades, immigrants should be “at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are,” much more important than all those boring settlers, founding fathers, frontiersmen, and cowboys, even if, technically speaking, they might have arrived earlier.

    Interesting.
    It would be refreshing to see a more meaningful discussion instead of polarizing one. Liberals vs conservative. Us vs them, Most of the people have mixed beliefs. Why dont we make it like WE vs politicians, liberals, conservatives, Greens does not matter….. Start discussing the politicians, disclosing their fraud, hypocrisies, and crimes.

    In the end, Carter was undone by a feud with his own liberal political party.

    I don’t think so. Carter was undone by a dirty tricks campaign against the Shah orchestrated by by George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and Bill Casey.

    With thousands of documents to support his position, Mansoor says that the “hostage crisis” was a political “management tool” created by the pro-Bush faction of the CIA, and implemented through an a priori Alliance with Khomeini’s Islamic Fundamentalists.” He says the purpose was twofold:

    To keep Iran intact and communist-free by putting Khomeini in full control.

    To destablize the Carter Administration and put George Bush in the White House.
    […]
    Mansoor has spent 10 years researching the issue. “I have collected enough data to yield a very clear picture. Mr. Bush’s lieutenants removed the Shah, brought Khomeini back to Iran, and guided his rise to power, sticking it to President Carter, the American people (52 in particular), and the Iranian people.” … This is not another ‘October Surprise’ theory purporting how the hostage crisis resulted in some Khomeini-Republic better deal. That theory puts the cart before the horse. Its absurd premise is that a major international deal was initiated and consummated in three weeks. Give me a break! Bill Casey didn’t have to go to Paris to play lets-make-deal. The ‘deal’ had been in operation for at least two years. This game of blind-man’s-bluff around Casey’s gravestone was more disinformation, damage control.”

    REAGAN, BUSH AND THATCHER IN IRAN IN 1978

    Mansoor produced a confidential document called the “Country Team Minutes” of April 26, 1978, more than a year before the hostage crisis. The meeting was held in Iran. The second paragraph of the routine minutes, states, “The Ambassador commented on our distinguished visitors, Ronald Reagan, George Bush and Margaret Thatcher, and commented that Teheran seems to be the site for an opposition parties congress.” Mansoor indicates the entire relationship was probably the most sophisticated criminal act in recent history. “That the people who, until recently, were holding power in Washington and those who currently are still in control in Teheran, got there by totally subverting the democratic process of both countries is news. That their methods of subversion relied on kidnapping, extortion and murder is criminal,” Mansoor states.

    The real Iranian hostage story from the files of Fara Mansoor
    By Harry V. Martin

    At the time of the meeting in Tehran in 1978, and during subsequent negotiations with the Iranians, neither Ronald Reagan nor George H.W. Bush held any official position within the U.S. Government. The Logan Act forbids private citizens from negotiating with foreign states:

    Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

    The death of once well-meaning liberalism that actually worked to uplift the middle classes and minorities via unionism, better education, and civil rights legislation, and its replacement with Jewish oligarch owned and designed turbo-capitalist “neoliberalism” is all the fault of the left just sitting on its fat ass, and is not part of the plan for a “Jew American….”, er, excuse me, a “New American Century” that the zionist neocon-infested PNACers, various Tribal elitists, and the Tribe’s wholly-controlled MSM rammed and are still ramming down the throats of Americans and the world to this day.

    Has there ever really been a “liberal class” in America? Sure we had Eleanor Roosevelt, the wife of war criminal President Roosevelt ( remember, FDR, a shabbos goy totally under control of the Zionist) who was concerned about the African American plight and struggle long before it was fashionable to do so, but then again, was she another Zionist tool like her husband? Was Eleanor just following a Morgenthau plan of her own? Jesse Owens would later state that it wasn’t Hitler who snubbed him, ( Hitler sent a congratulatory photo of himself and his cabinet to Owens) but it was FDR who never invited him to the White House or congratulated Owens on his outstanding performance in the Olympic Games held in Germany.

    Jimmy Carter? Heard a story long ago that when Carter was running for Governor of Georgia, he attended a Klan rally and told the attendees there that his opponent was for integration. I certainly wouldn’t be shocked the find this story was 100% accurate. I could clearly envision some of Carter’s ancestors as slave owners with a few Black slaves out there picking peanuts and/or cotton in the hot South Georgia sun.

    Bill Clinton? You do remember the Confederate Flag buttons with Clinton/Gore ’92?

    Lest we forget that all the leading voices of the counterculture or so-called “liberal” movement of the 1960’s when things really went astray had Jewish ancestry and names like Rubin, Ginsburg, Steinem, Hoffman, Lenny Bruce, etc. And we were treated with the start of weekly television shows featuring the dumb old White male bigot , the hipster “liberal” know it all and the genius Black guys and gals courtesy of Jewish Norman Lear.

In such cases we need to think more carefully. We need to find a way to maintain truth without getting into the intended battle; or if the choice is literal life vs death, just stick with truth.

    Actually a TRUE LIBERAL isn’t a bad thing, but we have been force fed the JEWISH VERSION OF LIBERALISM, WHICH IS NOTHING MORE THAN ANTI-WHITE RACISM. I actually consider myself more liberal than conservative, and no, wanting the races to live separately in their own environments and nations is not racist or conservative, it is just having common sense and an appreciation for REAL DIVERSITY. Only a REAL RACIST would seek to mix the races to create a nondescript multi-racial group of people with no common ancestry or history. Any TRUE LIBERAL would see the result of mixing the races and KNOW THE TRUTH, mankind is better off living among his own kind, that the JEWISH PLAN of flooding all White nations with different races is a plan to DESTROY the White race, which doesn’t sound very tolerant or liberal to me at all. A TRUE LIBERAL in the year 2020 would be what is called, “a White Nationalist” or racial separatist. A TRUE LIBERAL WOULD HATE NOT ONLY PRO-ZIONIST FOX NEWS BUT EQUALLY PRO-ZIONIST AS WELL AS ANTI-WHITE RACIST networks like CNN, MSNBC, etc. You would be hard pressed to find 1,000 TRUE LIBERALS in America in the year 2020 or even in the year 1968.

We published a preprint of our paper on April 12 and it is now awaiting peer review at the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    Since then, there have been many more reviews that support mask-wearing.

    On May 14, I and 100 of the world’s top academics released an open letter to all U.S. governors asking that “officials require cloth masks to be worn in all public places, such as stores, transportation systems, and public buildings.”

    Currently, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone wears a mask – as do the governments covering 90% of the world’s population – but, so far, only 12 states in the U.S. require it.

    Face Masks Pose Serious Risks To The Healthy

    Dr. Russell Blaylock warns that not only do face masks fail to protect the healthy from getting sick, but they also create serious health risks to the wearer. The bottom line is that if you are not sick, you should not wear a face mask.

    [MORE]

    As businesses reopen, many are requiring shoppers and employees to wear a face mask. With the advent of the so-called COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen a number of medical practices that have little or no scientific support as regards reducing the spread of this infection. One of these measures is the wearing of facial masks.

    There is growing evidence that the treatment protocol issued to treating doctors by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), mainly intubation and use of a ventilator (respirator), may have contributed significantly to the high death rate.

    “By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain.”

    Russell Blaylock, MD

    No studies have been done to demonstrate that either a cloth mask or the N95 mask has any effect on transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Any recommendations, therefore, have to be based on studies of influenza virus transmission. And, as you have seen, there is no conclusive evidence of their efficiency in controlling flu virus transmission.

    It is also instructive to know that until recently, the CDC did not recommend wearing a face mask or covering of any kind, unless a person was known to be infected, that is, until recently. Non-infected people need not wear a mask. When a person has TB we have them wear a mask, not the entire community of non-infected. The recommendations by the CDC and the WHO are not based on any studies of this virus and have never been used to contain any other virus pandemic or epidemic in history.

    Now that we have established that there is no scientific evidence necessitating the wearing of a face mask, are there dangers to wearing a face mask, especially for long periods? Several studies have indeed found significant problems with wearing such a mask. This can vary from headaches, to increased airway resistance, carbon dioxide accumulation, to hypoxia (shortage of oxygen), all the way to serious life-threatening complications.

    It is known that the N95 mask, if worn for hours, can reduce blood oxygenation as much as 20%, which can lead to a loss of consciousness, as happened to the hapless fellow driving around alone in his car wearing an N95 mask, causing him to pass out, and to crash his car and sustain injuries. I am sure that we have several cases of elderly individuals or any person with poor lung function passing out and hitting their head.

    Unfortunately, no one is telling the frail elderly and those with lung diseases of these dangers when wearing a face mask of any kind—which can cause a severe worsening of lung function.

    The importance of these findings is that a drop in oxygen levels (hypoxia) is associated with lessened immunity. In essence, your mask may very well put you at an increased risk of infections.

    There is another danger to wearing these masks every day, especially if worn for several hours. When a person is infected with a respiratory virus, they will expel some of the virus with each breath. If they are wearing a mask, especially an N95 mask or other tightly fitting mask, they will be constantly rebreathing the viruses, raising the concentration of the virus in the lungs and the nasal passages. We know that people who have the worst reactions to the coronavirus have the highest concentrations of the virus early on. And this leads to the deadly cytokine storm in a selected number.

    One should not attack and insult those who have chosen not to wear a mask, because these studies suggest that is the wise choice.

  64. Ragno says:

    With every passing hour it’s becoming plain as day that the only statue that deserves to be left standing is the one we haven’t even built yet: the one of Senator Joseph McCarthy, the true martyr of our age, who gave his all to buy his country enough time to root out the quislings and betrayers that had burrowed into the substrate of our nation – who, thereupon, has had his life, deeds and good name slimed on by leftist pissants, who saw to it that all of us, and two generations of our children, were relentlessly conditioned to despise his memory.

    “At long last, have you no sense of decency?” – it was the famous gotcha question the media made sure was seen and heard by every American with a radio or a television set, that helped grease the skids for our long, pointless slide leftward….and for many years, its propaganda value was strong and even convincing. But we’ve heard those exact sorts of questions shouted at Trump, daily (and not just him, but any American who defies the Narrative), since the day he won the election, by people so hell-bent on destroying the man that they’d gladly destroy the country just to ensure the target had been obliterated with it. And so if we can find anything to be grateful for after four-plus years of relentless single-minded attacks posing as journalism, it’s that at long last, they have finally put the demonization of McCarthy into its proper perspective. So, if for no other reason, we say: thank you, Jim Acosta and Rachel Maddow and Kathy Griffin and Rob Reiner.

    Look around at not just the awful headlines, but the demonic cheering sections active inside our most venerated institutions; at the pod people now installed at every fulcrum of power where, once, normal Americans stood watch over the ship of state; and you’ll understand why every patriotic American owes the shade of Tailgunner Joe our deepest and most sincere apologies for allowing the enemies of Western civilization to turn him into Emmanuel Goldberg for all these decades since his highly-questionable early demise. If the America we once venerated is to survive in any recognizable form, and even thrive once more, at least some of those denuded plynths dotting the landscape should support statues honoring the life and struggle of Joe McCarthy – who gave his life and reputation so that Americans could live as free men – and those statues should be visited by American citizens sufficiently chastened by our current brush with leftist tyranny to look upon him as the American hero he was, and is.

    The US would of course survive but US style liberalism will not as its self-deceptions have overwhelmed it.

    What makes U.S. immune from History? Countries break up and die. They especially break up and die when there is a sociopath grabbing elite feasting on the carcass.

    The only thing that holds people together is shared language, history, and culture. Nation’s are extended tribes, which means extended DNA.

    The U.S. is a tower of babble, with its history being re-written and erased. There is little in the way of extended DNA and hence no familial relations to hold things together naturally.

    Finance Oligarchy might try using their militarized police to hold things together, but how long will that last?

    Also, negroes and browns have been programmed to think whitey is the source of all evil, so the plutocracy is going to suffer a boomerang.

    Basically the left (liberals) and right (old conservatives) have been disappeared. Trotskyites on the left joined forces with Christian Zionists and Rockefeller Chicago School Neoliberal Economists on the right. The neoconservative Republicans that resulted from the Trotskyite entrance /invasion were more like Democrats than Old Republicans. Big Government, Deficits, Pro War, Pro Israel. They paid lip service to their base by talking up cutting immigration and social programs, and against globalism , but not doing much against them if at all.

    This created a vacuum for the liberal left who had nothing much to differentiate themselves from these new Republicans except on social issues, and they succumbed to the temptations of neoliberalism themselves (which is actually Mussolini’s Corporatism). Riches beyond belief for the power elite who threw some crumbs to their puppets in both Parties. Pretty big crumbs in fact.

    The DNC leadership covered their betrayal with absurdities like Russia Gate, LGBT, Green Economies and BLM/Defund Police and running the demented Biden in an obvious attempt to not dethrone the elites Chosen One, while pretending be against him.

    And even on social issues they were faced with a Republican President (himself an orange absurdity) who treats marriage as a transient convenience and demands other countries to respect gay marriages (his mentor Crohn was gay) and his conservative base seems not to care about that nor his Casino past , mafia ties and real estate sales to money launderers. All stuff that would have made you unelectable 40 years ago. But he pretends to be one of you while he is a Trojan Horse for the Globalists Elite . Master of Kayfabe and Fake Wrestling he is.

    So at this point we have one party, both of them basically economic Fascists, Globalist, Imperialist committed to Corporate Socialism and both figuring out how to remove what Freedoms the herd has left. They must continue to maintain the 2 party illusion , so both parties become more ridiculous and extreme, and the electorate becomes literally insane not knowing whats real or not-and their own cognitive dissonance.

    There are no true liberals (just fake ones) left among the Democratic leadership and no true conservatives (just fake ones like Trump) in the Republican Party. Whats left looks more like China or the Fourth Reich, and a mindless or confused herd that are increasingly irrelevant and present more of a disposal problem to the elite , as they no longer need most of them.

    Both parties are remnants of the Bush and Clinton Dynasties. History treats them as opposites. Bush Sr and Clinton were both Trilaterals under the Rockefellers. While Bush was running drugs into this country to fund Iran-Contra it was going into Clintons home state where he provided protection and money laundering services through a BCCI front owned by Stevens at Systematics whom hillary represented. Stevens was a big contributor to both Clintons and Bush.

    Bush negotiated NAFTA. Clinton signed it. Bush signed Agenda 21. Clinton pushed through the tools needed to implement it with Reinventing Government that allowed better control over states . Along the way both parties pledged allegiance to Israel and here we are.

    Give up your 2 party religion. You are worshiping a false idol (Democratic left or Republican Right). Neither exists except in your mind as we march toward a Totalitarian Technocratic State enslaved by AI/Tech/Data/Robots who will decide what level of permissions you deserve, and everything else. If you think impure thoughts, Barrs precrime might get you (forced mental health care or reeducation camp) or your social credit score will be dropped (possibly to levels where employment, travel, marriage, access to digital currency are restricted or forbidden).

  71. It’s interesting to see how GW Bush has been rehabbed by the left-liberals. John McCain was also getting standing ovations, despite being a crazy warmonger. Invading a country under false pretenses, committing the cardinal crime against peace, and killing hundreds of thousands of Arabs is perfectly fine as long as you don’t insist on traditional bathrooms and boys growing up to be boys.

    That “communities like mine” is a demaguoguic flourish.
    Aside from that, though, Booker is correct.
    That is, black communities were destroyed by Clinton’s and Biden’s policies and legislation, including the creation of for-profit prisons, quotas of arrests, and other stuff mentioned in the article

    Did you know that there are prison REITs?

    Clinton destroyed both the minority community AND the white working class. Obama delivered the coup de grace with the Wall STreet bailouts, the failure of health care policy, and the continuing foreign policy disasters. If both of these groups—minorities and white working class— could “get” that, we might get somewhere in this country.

    Some of the author’s nomenclature is, to me, murky but whatever liberals hoped to achieve, they destroyed their chances of achieving their aims by clinging to the Dem party like barnacles. The Dem Party under Clinton destroyed the liberal dream/vision.

    Clinton (continuation of Bush I) + Obama (continuation of Bush II) destroyed any chance of continuing gradual improvement for the working and middle classes of this country. And led directly to Trump.

    Failure of liberals to grasp this simple equation—the need to deny it and the need to “stand by” Obama— led to Trump Derangement Syndrome.

    And that is where we stand today.

    Liberalism is dead, you see, because it has to be inasmuch as its chief premise and the raison d’être of its welfare boondoggles for white bureaucrats is the liberals’ pure racism of black inferiority. Some new cover story is sorely needed now that blacks are looking for revenge, and the author’s trying to provide a fig leaf in the meantime.

    Underlying every program is the DNC doctrine that blacks are so inferior to white liberals that the former can neither distinguish right from wrong nor accomplish anything on their own without unmerited preferment in admissions, hiring, and promotion granted by liberals to blacks in exchange for the sort of political servility demonstrated by the Black Congressional Caucus.

    What all liberal programs presuppose is that the “root causes” argument is not only false, but its opposite is true and part of black DNA. (Liberals are in awe of Darwinism and hate Christian equality.) In other words, liberals will say that the “root cause” of why blacks engage in savagery and lack impulse control is because they come from the ‘hood, while every liberal program implies the opposite, that blacks turn wherever they live into a ‘hood precisely because they’re savages and lacking in impulse control. Liberalism is evil posing as virtue.

    There’s also the small matter that these white liberals take for themselves something like 70 cents out of every dollar Congress pretends to allocate to black welfare. Urban renewal has always been a boondoggle for Jewish real estate interests of the sort that ruled Baltimore under Pelosi’s father or destroyed black neighborhoods in Chicago to expand the U of Chicago, etc. All the talk about “rebuilding” is coded language for more extraordinary wealth transfer to Jewish real estate interests to compensate or balance out the $trillions already allocated by Congress and the WH to further enrich Jewish banking interests.

    Pelosi and Kaine’s talk about creating greater education opportunities for inner-city blacks is, of course, a thinly veiled payoff to the teachers’ unions in the big cities whose job is to ensure that the last thing blacks get is a real education such that blacks remain perpetually disaffected, demoralized, and materially dependent voting blocs living in “brutalist” concrete projects while their kids go to even more prison-like holding pens designed by politically motivated, liberal architects whose ghoulishness creates structures even more devoid of human scale or architectural livability than the crime-ridden projects these poor kids go home to. Everything DNC is about payoffs to liberal power centers with crumbs thrown on the floor for their step-n-fetchit blacks.

    Listen. I agree with you 100%. I scream and scream, “Identity Politics has the same purpose, left or right, pro- or ant-racism–to divert us from asking where the money went.” But the myriad deluded fools on here disagree. They think ranting about race all the time is more important than our total impoverishment. Sheesh. Wish there was a site for people like us, where we are allowed the kind of freedom to say what we want, like on here. I don’t know any other place, though, where you can say what you want.

    Yes. Code words for young black men who had knowingly and willingly chosen to commit offenses under the laws of the state or the nation. Crimes like rape, murder, robbery, battery, bank robbery, carjacking, and drug trafficking.

    And as for criminals in prison for life for drug offenses, EVVVVVERYYYYYbody knows how life sentences were handed out for trafficking in nickel bags and possession of paraphernalia for FIRST-TIME offenders. Not a vicious, feral scumbag in the bunch. Just innocent youths trying to make their way in an irrational and vengeful society run by whitey.

    Stan Evans’s book Blacklisted by History (2007), p. 567-68, clarifies that “have you no decency” ambush.

    The lawyer who spoke those words, Army Counsel Joseph Welch, was castigating McCarthy for outing a lawyer on the lawyer’s firm, Frederick Fisher, as having been a member of an organization, the National Lawyers Guild, described by McCarthy as the “legal bulwark of the Communist Party.”

    However, Welch had himself revealed the Guild membership of Fisher weeks earlier, as reported by the NYT.

    Strom Thurmond paid for her college tuition. And Strom Thurmond maintained contact with her.

    Her mother was 16 years old and Strom Thurmond was 22 and single. I do not know the age of consent.

    But what could her mother do. Refuse Strom’s advances.

    I would appreciate your assistance. Sydney Schanberg believed everything that I have written about rape, narcotics smuggling, money laundering on Wall Street. Schanberg told me that my articles would never be published because the owners of the newspaper protect their friends. He explained to me about his termination from The New York Times and that only a conservative publication would publish his article about POWs.

    I was wired by the FBI

    Please publish my article, “Wall Street’s Role In Fueling Jamaican Drug Gangs.”

    I would also appreciate your assistance in publishing my letter to Senator Evan Bayh, which he forwarded to Senator Hillary Clinton, and Clinton’s response to my letter. It will destroy Clinton.
