A few years ago, if you’d told me I would ever vote for a Republican not named Ron Paul, I’d have said you were out of your mind. For most of my lifetime the Republicans seemed the more obnoxious wing of the two-party duopoly. They were sanctimonious hypocrites preaching family values while banging interns; smug phonies who’d do and say anything for corporate money; rabid militarists who incited hatred of Communists during the Cold War, then Muslims during the 9/11-triggered War on Islam; mass murder profiteers whose mission in life was to drench the military-industrial complex in blood money and lap up the leftovers. My overall impression was that Republicans were either sociopaths (the smart ones) or simple-minded gullible fools (the rest). Compared to them, Democrats often seemed at least slightly more honest, reasonable, sophisticated, and genuinely concerned with ordinary folks.

But today I’ll be voting for a bunch of Republicans, starting with Senator Ron Johnson,* in the midterm elections. I even knocked on doors for Johnson—the first time I ever did that for any mainstream party candidate.

What happened?

My Democrat friends and family members undoubtedly think I’m nuts. But I think it’s the Democrats who’ve gone crazy.

When I was young, the left stood for peace and freedom. That was actually the name of the left-wing third party I often voted for: the Peace and Freedom Party. The Democrats, who stood to the left of the Republicans, were the natural home of mainstream voters who didn’t like the Vietnam War, didn’t like the Cold War, didn’t like the wars on Nicaragua and El Salvador and Panama and Grenada and Angola and so many other countries, not least of all Iraq and Afghanistan.

And Democrats, more than Republicans tended to oppose any attempts to censor criticism of the rich and powerful. Even in the most controversial cases of free speech vs. censorship—such as Nazis marching through the Jewish town of Skokie, Illinois—liberals, leftists, and Democrats stood up for free speech. Conservatives and Republicans mostly didn’t.

The Democratic Party probably would have ended the Cold War, and with it the American Empire, in the 1960s, if Republicans like James Jesus Angleton and Allan Dulles (and at least one treasonous Democrat, Lyndon Baines Johnson) hadn’t helped Israel murder the Kennedy brothers. Though the pro-peace faction of the Democratic Party never managed to force a real investigation of the JFK and RFK killings, it took down Johnson and contributed to ending the Vietnam debacle. Many Democrats, and few Republicans, have been murdered by the national security state—not just JFK, RFK, and JFK Jr., but also Dorothy Kilgallen, Hale Boggs, Mel Carnahan, and Paul Wellstone. Dennis Kucinich, one of my favorite progressive Democrats, was nearly assassinated, as he recounted during our interview last year, and one or more of his family members may have been targeted to scare him away from his pledge to investigate the 9/11 put options.

Terrible, unspeakable truths about the almost unbelievable corruption infesting the highest echelons of the American Empire have, until recently, been spoken more by leftists and Democrats than by rightists and Republicans. If, back in the 1960s and 1970s, you wanted at least some of the truth about the JFK assassination, you had to read left-wing magazines like Ramparts or your local (leftist) underground newspaper. Left-leaning Democratic columnists like Warren Hinckle in San Francisco were the only people breathing a word of truth about the JFK coup to mainstream audiences.

Fast-forward to 2022, and suddenly, somehow, the Democrats have become the war party, the censorship party, the “anti-conspiracy theories” (i.e. anti-hard-truths) party.

The Democrats, more than the Republicans, launched the current War on Russia Through Ukraine. Obama presided over the overthrow of the legitimate Ukrainian government in 2014 and the installation of a rabidly anti-Russia neo-Nazi regime. Biden, for his part, shredded the Minsk Accords, approved the continuing UkroNazi genocide of Donbass, and cleared the path for Ukraine to be absorbed by NATO—a euphemism for “US military occupation.” Clearly Biden’s policy, supported by essentially the entire Democratic Party, is to use the Ukraine war to bleed, break up, and loot Russia.

Republicans, for their part, are far less unanimous in their anti-Russia warmongering. Some of them, like Marjorie Taylor Greene, are promising that a Republican victory in the midterms will stop the rush to nuclear apocalypse.

Since war and censorship tend to go together, it isn’t surprising that the Democratic warmongers are now rabidly pro-censorship. Stealing a line from Henry Kissinger, the Democrats reacted to Trump’s rise by saying, in essence, “I don’t see why we need to stand by and watch a country go fascist because of the irresponsibility of its own people.” From the Democrats’ perspective, the American people had become too irresponsible to be trusted with free speech. A wave of social media censorship, mostly targeting Republicans and conservatives, arose in 2016 and grew larger every year. Then when COVID-19 hit in 2020 the wave crested and broke, washing away the last remnants of pre-2016 internet freedom.

Not satisfied with merely becoming the party of war and unfreedom, the Democrats have also decided to one-up the Republicans in shilling for corporate greed and corruption. By far the most extreme example of systemic corruption in the American corporate sector is Big Pharma, whose tentacles are wrapped around the academic and scientific segments of the public health sector—distorting research through systematic bribery, reaping multi-billion-dollar profits on toxic products, killing hundreds of thousands, and working closely with the $100 billion biological warfare industry. (For an introduction, read or watch The Real Anthony Fauci and check out Ron Unz’s e-book on public health scandals.)

Prior to the capture of health and medicine by Big Pharma, the Democrats were the voice of relative sanity on public health issues. Today, the Democrats, with the lone exception of RFK Jr., are the rabidly mindless shills of the Big Pharma billionaires.

Some of my friends, including Allan at No Lies Radio, object that despite the Democrats’ newfound status as warmongering censorship-loving corporate shills, they are at least better on economic issues. Republican Ron Johnson, for example, wants to put Social Security on the table for funding and benefit cuts. Given that skyrocketing inequality is the root cause of much of the destruction of American society, Allan suggests, shouldn’t we view Democrats as the lesser evil?

One of Allan’s favorite economists, Michael Hudson, says “no.” Ron Unz just sent me the following quote from Hudson’s recent interview:

DLJ: Economies are interdependent. I.e., it would still be a question of the Chinese working class and the American working class building bonds across nations.

MH: The Democratic Party has produced such an anti-Asian, hate-filled racism, that I don’t think that can be. The Democratic Party has done everything it could to spur an ethnic war between the black and Asian populations. You see that here in New York by the attacks on the subways, on the street, mainly by blacks against Asians. The Democratic Party, by pushing this ethnic identity, has pushed ethnic hatred. That’s why the Democrats are surprised that the Hispanics and Asians are moving towards the Republicans. The Hispanics and Asians realize that the Democrats have a race-hatred policy, much like the Nazis. I don’t believe that any political progress can be made in the U.S. until the Democratic Party, certainly the current leadership, is swept away. There cannot be any progress in America today led by the Democratic Party, which is today the ideologically Right-wing party that has turned what should be an economic problem into an ethnic and non-economic problem. It’s like the old industrial capitalist was supposed to have said, “if I can get half the working class fighting against the rest of the working class, then we have won.” That’s the Democratic Party. They asked, “how do we do it?” We divide the working class into ethnicities, ethnic identity, gender identity.

DLJ: You can have the working class cancel each other.

MH: Yes.

Hudson is right: The billionaire oligarchs’ most effective weapon against ordinary working Americans is the madness of identity politics. And the ID politics weapon is being wielded by the Democratic wing, far more than the Republican wing, of the oligarchs’ two-party duopoly. By framing the wars on Russia and the Islamic world as crusades to make the world safe for drag queens to groom children and biological men to crush women in female athletics, they’re inviting a whole lot of Americans to cheer for the other side.

So I am voting for Republicans today not because I am thrilled with all of their policies and positions—I definitely am not—but because they have somehow become marginally better than the Democrats…which admittedly isn’t saying much. By participating in a likely Red Wave, I hope to help deliver a stinging rebuke to the Democrats’ warmongering, censorship, shilling for Big Pharma, and promotion of identity-politics-based mass psychosis whose only beneficiaries are the billionaires.

*I don’t agree with Ron Johnson on all the issues, but I admire his courage and integrity. Sen. Johnson is taking on Big Pharma and the allied biowar industry by vowing to investigate COVID scandals including the mega-scandal of COVID origins.

  1. Equality was his new religion,

    And its priests never ceased to bludgeon

    All things naturally excellent and true

    To make their melting pot’s insipid stew.

    When his politicians unhinged the gates

    Of white America by their statutes,

    The deluge from the lesser world began,

    Each squatting alien equal to a man

    Whose father’s father’s father signed with blood

    The plan for his descendants’ nationhood.

    To accelerate this national dilution

    The Enemy used deception and illusion

    As before, his confidence never greater

    In the power of his demonic theater

    Over a degraded population.

    He broadcast live on every station

    The brazen, calculated murders

    Of two thousand souls among the girders

    Of gigantic towers he demolished,

    Then celebrated as his golem rushed

  4. Anonymous[502] • Disclaimer says:

    Calling Angleton and Allan Dulles Republicans is like calling Hitler Honorary Citizen of Metze. It’s true, but I don’t think their self-concept is too wrapped up in it. They have superordinate loyalties.

    Democrats were for peace and human rights under Carter, until CIA purged Carter. They were for war, in Asia under LBJ, in Europe under CIA Secret Agent Clinton. Republicans were for peace and disarmament under Eisenhower, until Dulles crashed that U2 on Khrushchev’s foot. Republicans were for Cold War under Reagan till DCI emeritus Bush shot him, and then they were for INF disarmament, then Republicans were for war and slump when Bush finally got his turn, till he got himself shitcanned.

    The pattern here is CIA running one party into the ground, then hijacking the other one for public catharsis of simulated throw-the-bums-out.

    Now it just so happens that CIA just got finished using Democrats as crash test dummies. They put Obama up to looting the fisc for bankrupt banks, presiding over systematic and widespread murder, and making the Gulf Coast one big march of dimes with Deepwater Horizon. Catharsis came early and took them by surprise when people voted for Professional Asshole Donald Trump. CIA attacked Trump continuously and stole another election to purge him. With Biden, the perfect crash-test dummy, they ran him into the pylon at 90 mph with undeclared war, more capital markets asset-stripping and looting in 2019, the crime against humanity of medical experimentation, and now amputation of the bulk of the planet’s productive capacity and concomitant depression.

    The evident hysteria of Wisner’s Wurlitzer stems from CIA’s insecure control over fringe right-wing movements, combined with legal exposure to crimes against humanity and peace. When CIA was up against it in neutral Indochina, Democrats sacrificed Nixon. They could have thrown Dan Arnold into the volcano (except that CIA sent Don Gregg down the threaten martial law.) When CIA loses this war, a Republican majority might have to dig up a scapegoat. The SCO might insist on a CIA perp.

    Sadly, I must agree (at least in the essentials).

    The Republicans are often not much better – but the Democrats are full-on the party of Wall Street and War.

    Also on immigration: as Bernie Sanders pointed out in 2016, when he was still honest, open-borders mass-immigration is a far-right thing, designed to drive wages and living standards for the many down, and rents and profits for the few, up. There is nothing so putrid as a richer person claiming moral superiority for pushing a policy that makes them richer at the expense of making everyone else poorer. The proponents of open borders have no standing to talk about morality, it is offensive for them claim this. Open borders is an open attack on the working class. And the Republicans are, mostly, quite a bit better on this than the Democrats.

    Sadly, even if the Republicans take back the House and Senate, the elites will still rule via executive orders and any legislation the Republicans pass will be vetoed. And look for some very, very nasty legislation to pass in the “lame duck” session – which, again, will not be overturned because of the veto. But we do what we can. If you are an American who works for a living, vote Republican.

  6. I voted a straight Republican ticket, here in the Mitt, with no joy or enthusiasm. The Democrats are so execrable and outright-villainous, that I felt I had no choice. I mainly went to vote against our Satanic Proposal 3. I’m increasingly of the opinion that voting for officials merely lends legitimacy to our corrupt “Democracy”, but I felt a duty to stand against the Democrats.

    In 2020 I was given the choice of two low-lifes. Trump was the “R” and Biden was the “D”, and neither one was worth a pewter ****. The same was true in 2016, and also 2012.

    Yep, there are still machines everywhere even after all the sordid situations of election 2020.

    We used paper ballots today and fed them into a scanner tabulator. I noted the manufacturer of the machines and looked them up online. ESS – Election Systems & Software.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Election_Systems_%26_Software#Remote_Access_Controversy

    Here’s some ugly (but, not surprising) detail from their Wiki page.
    By installing remote access software allowing the machines to be accessed via the internet, the machines are vulnerable to being “hacked” remotely, allowing the counting to be altered surreptitiously, or malware to be installed to affect an election result.

    TPTB own the counting mechanisms and all these scams have been going on a looooonnng time.

    Also, note how rather hazy the ownership of these companies are. This is who has majority ownership of ESS. https://www.bloomberg.com/profile/company/0545692D:US

  21. Your scientific argument is ideologically unsound. Furthermore , bipartisan Scientists at the Karl Marx Institute, Berkeley have found undeniable proof that Republicanism is a direct result of a degenerative brain mutation.
    Symptoms of a Republican brain mutation include delusional ideas that the proletariat has a right to self-defense, capitalism creates wealth, that American culture stems from Christian tradition, that people all over the world desire liberty and prosperity, that Third World countries should be self-reliant, that moral standards are absolute and objective, that the individual supersedes the collective, that parents should teach children values and have a wide choice of schools, and similar incoherent ramblings that mimic the speech of the insane. Everyone knows that the complete opposite is true.

    One cure for this disease is taking a class in Social Studies at Columbia University.

    If this doesn’t work, the researchers recommend that the afflicted receive a free trial subscription to The New York Times. If they renew, they will be considered cured.

  26. What Hudson is blaming on the “Democrats” was proposed by Herbert Marcuse decades ago. He and his coreligionists at the Frankfurt School realized that the proletariate did not revolt against the capitalists because their lives were getting better. Marcuse said a new “proletariate” was necessary to destroy the capitalist state and that new proletariate was “ghetto blacks” and sexual degenerates (using identity to cause chaos). Using “Democrats” as an acceptable euphemism is understandable but will never address the problem and wake the “woke”.

    I know. That’s the way I have felt for the past eight years or so. But what the fuck do today’s election results mean?????

    Make no mistake, today’s results are so at variance with the usual patterns of presidential and mid-term elections that they must be conveying some message that the pundits have already missed in the lead-up to this election. Just what?

    That Americans love Biden and his stumbling, warmongering ways that risk the very continuation of all life on the planet? So, they like to live on the edge, do they?

    That Americans fall for the same bullshit propaganda that the neoliberals endlessly dispense? That dipshit Dubya was quite wrong about “won’t get fooled again?” They can be fooled endlessly…?

    Republicans were primed for a seemingly inevitable “red wave” to counter the “blue wave” that purportedly swept Sleepy Joe into power. All the polls said… wait for it, wait for it…

    Yet we get nothing but a disappointing squib, suggesting perhaps that Joe and Nancy are, in fact, masters of our universe to be kept in power till happily ever after????

    We already had an incoherent president. Now the commonwealth of Penn’s Woods gets to cherish their very own gibberish-dispensing senator in the big stone playpen on Capitol Hill.

    Either the Russians are punishing us real bad with their latest stolen election–kind of the ultimate in bad jokes, or this country is much deeper into the dark side than Darth Vader ever was.

    Is this supposed to be the result that reinforces the validity of the 2020 ultimate con job? Because it makes no sense whatsoever when everyone I know has stopped voting for the Dems yet they supposedly keep winning? Is this evidence that there never was any cheating? Or that the cheating never stops and is absolutely sweeping in its prevalence and stunning in its effectiveness?

    Lemme get this straight for the record books. Americans endlessly tell the pollsters that they fear and loathe Demento Joe and his disastrous warmongering Wokesters, yet they vote for the same said clowns come election time. If so, Sleepy Joe is gonna be elected to a second term in another landslide!! It will be dogs and cats living together and your every nightmare come true!

  40. @Kevin Barrett

    Since war and censorship tend to go together, it isn’t surprising that the Democratic warmongers are now rabidly pro-censorship.

    Now let me see, which contributor(s) of articles to the Unz Review also practise censorship ?

    Why, it’s none other than Michael Hudson and Larry Romanoff.
    Several individuals that I know of (myself included), have been banned from posting comments below their articles.
    And it’s for no other reason than the fact that these two Marxists/Maoists cannot take constructive criticism. They’re both thin-skinned petulant little children that demand the commentary forums below their articles be enclaves of sycophantic yes-men and women.

    Yet Kevin, you still quote Hudson, despite the fact that he’s a discredited charlatan of an economist that’s never forecast any substantial economic event in his life.

    So UR readers, if you’re genuinely against censorship (like that which the disgusting Democratic Party engages in), then you should practise what you preach and :

    BOYCOTT ALL MICHAEL HUDSON and LARRY ROMANOFF ARTICLES in the Unz Review and elsewhere.

    Do not read their articles.
    Do not post comments there.

    These wretched individuals should be shunned by civilised society.

    Fortunately, I don’t know whether it’s because other readers are showing solidarity for those of us that have been banned OR (more likely), readers are just tired of reading their B.S, because fewer people are posting comments in (and likely not reading), their pathetic articles.

    The sooner these two tyrants of censorship go the way of the dodo, the better.

  43. Wonder if any Republicans, after their underwhelming performance, will reflect on the strategy of telling their voters that elections are fraudulent. Can they really expect Republican voters to turn out when they are told by their leaders that the elections are all rigged for Democrats anyway? I’m already seeing the same fraud excuses made for their failure this time around.

    The Republican fraud narrative is a vote suppressor, an excuse to never engage in self-reflection or adjust messaging or behavior, and a turn-off to independent voters all wrapped into one. It’s possibly the stupidest political strategy of all time. But world record stupidity is just what we have come to expect from organized conservatism.

    And now imagine living in the 1920s/1930s. Experience the massive amount of political corruption under prohibition law and the mob having the best time of its life. And most people’s finances (and lives) doing a steep nosedive after Black Friday.

    See Roosevelt getting talked into abandoning the gold standard by some shit wit “economist”. And then having his “New Deal” going on, basically aping what the fascists and communists did over in Europe up until then. And then wilfully ignoring the fears of the educated and the whole middle class to become less like the founding fathers and more like them. Actually, A LOT MORE. As America basically stopped being the land of the free and the home of the brave and turned into another European-ideology run state. To inherit the world power-status from the British US-politics wanted the US to become like their empire.

    And then getting into the next world war at the end of the 1930s by pushing the Japanese and shamelessly supporting British and their continental policies once again. And certainly not for the best of reasons – those would have been China in 1932 or Czechoslovakia in 1938.

    Then, like the great war before, the same shit show from ’41 to ’46 with the people sending their sons over to die in foreign places and the fat cats from the establishment cashing in.

    & with called House races @ 177 Demonrats/199 Republiscams, with just 4 (instead of the predicted 44) Republiscam net gains, and 63 (mostly west coast) races yet to be called, the Republiscams are still net 19 seats short of taking mathematical control of the House. It’s just possible, when the dust (and lawsuits) settle, the Republiscams will get control there…but I doubt it.

    Its the same in politics. To me the thought that anyone would vote for Feh Feh Feh Duh Duh merman versus OZ is enough to give me vertigo. But, there you have it ! The voters have spoken although what they said makes little sense.

    Featherman reminds me of a freak who surpasses Lurch. Frankly (no pun intended) it seems like Dr Frankenstein had some spare parts left over, did not want to throw them out and so tah dah, we got Featherman. The voters, in their eternal wisdom re-elected people whose policies and governance have been anything but stellar.

    Enough of the American public is as dumb as a shoe sole. Ultimately, they deserve the politicians they vote for and will have to suck up the consequences.

    Disappointing, but not over. The Fake Stream Media have the Senate split at 48D-47R.

    Alaska is between two Republicans so that is a 100% lock. Wisconsin and
    Nevada have huge leads for the Republicans.

    So the actual split at this point is 48D-50R.

    Neither candidate in Georgia will clear 50%, so that is headed to a runoff.

    Arizona is headed towards a fiasco. The were serious fails on the day that were not addressed (1). The results cannot be certified because voters were turned away. Expect the opening of a huge Pandora’s Box of controversy.

    Pennsylvania’s biggest failure is the FSM cover-up of Fetterman’s condition. The one and only debate happened after as many as 750,000 early votes were already cast. However, there does not seem to be an obvious legal fix for this issue.

    The Senate will likely wind up 49D-51R.

    This presents its own problem as MAGA Republicans were planning to ease Mitch McConnell out to pasture. That is not possible with only a one seat margin.

    The Rebublic is dead.

Yet, even with all these headwinds to an incumbent party, where the midterms typically favor the Republicans… the needle was barely moved.

    I believe it’s a trio of a shifting demographic in America, physical fraud (ballot harvesting, etc.) and computer fraud (dominion). There’s not a country that can survive when people like Fetterman win in a landslide victory.

    I haven’t had a tv in about a decade; laid eyes on Oz for the first time last night. He’s pathetic.

    Fetterman looks like Lurch but check out his bio, especially his Damascus Moment and how he acted on it:

    Beginning his professional career in the insurance industry, Fetterman studied finance at Albright College and earned an MBA from the University of Connecticut. He went on to join AmeriCorps and earned a Master of Public Policy degree from Harvard University. Fetterman’s service with AmeriCorps led him to Braddock, where he moved in 2004 and was elected mayor the next year. As mayor, Fetterman sought to revitalize the former steel town through art and youth programs.

    The Vogues are from Turtle Creek, PA, about 4 miles from Fetterman’s Braddock. Their tune gives a sense of the blue-collar character of the area, where steel + Westinghouse airbrake once dominated but are now dead dead dead, and the towns with them.

    That someone with Fetterman’s MBA + Harvard education coupled with a commitment to the working man even made the effort to revitalize Braddock says to me, We need MORE, not fewer Fettermans.
    Let Oz keep his Oprah gig. He’s apparently good at it.

    (My idiot brother-in-law is a huge Fetterman fan — possibly his only redeeming feature — so it’s with humility that I endorse Fetterman’s candidacy and I’m pleased that he beat Oz.)

    Now about Shapiro — a bigot. The people of Pennsylvania should demand that the man swear the same oath Naturalized citizens used to swear:

    “I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen;
    …that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic”

    Shapiro declares himself a “proud Jew” and as such has automatic right of citizenship in Israel.

    https://www.statista.com/statistics/207436/overweight-and-obesity-rates-for-adults-by-ethnicity/

    So, the most egregiously fat demographic (Africans) votes 90-plus percent Democrat in federal, state, and local elections.

    Having said that, the Republicans are not serious about fair elections. If they were, they’d grind all federal legislation and nominations to a permanent halt until a statute is passed requiring all voters to appear in person — with truly limited exceptions, as we used to have, for people deployed as thugs in uniform abroad, or people whose doctors certify that they’re in the hospital gravely ill or recovering from surgery.

    If Republicans really wanted to end this massive and ever-growing vote fraud, they’d also stop anything from passing and anyone from getting confirmed until a statute is passed requiring those voters to present a US Passport to prove US citizenship, age, and place of residence.

    Driver’s licenses, as we know, are given to legal residents (non-citizens) all over the country. That’s fine, but thus driver’s licenses are not proof of US citizenship. Even worse, illegal aliens (noncitizens who should be imprisoned for a lengthy term and then deported far from our borders) get driver’s licenses in California and New York, so they too can and do vote absent a passport ID requirement.

    Unless they stop default vote-by-mail, the Republicans will continue to lose and deserve it.

    The part where a severely, cognitively damaged person won a Senate seat.

    A Master of Public Policy degree from Harvard University and service with AmeriCorps are two of the most worthless endeavors man can undertake.

    I should note: I didn’t see the Fetterman debate/flame-out. But I might have been sympathetic: I suffered a brain-bleed that should have killed me — 33% die of such; 33% suffer permanent impairment; 33% survive. After about 4 months in ICU, rehab, therapy, I survived, having learned how to walk & talk again. I was lucky & had good care.

    Everybody has shit in their life. But that does not confer the ability or right to be a Senator.

  99. The Democrats, more than the Republicans, launched the current War on Russia Through Ukraine.

    It seems to me that the US is making enemies and at the same time persuading them that the only way to survive this enemity is to fight the US. This is the most stupid politics that you can think of. China has historical grievances against the West. The third world has historical grievances against the West. We can say the same about Muslim countries. Now Russia is turning against the West.

    If we had acted more reasonably, we could have left this history behind us and try to have more peaceful relations and less enemity. But Americans are a hostage of elites which think that the only justification for their existence is to promote wars and aggressive politics. They need to make enemies as if they wouldn’t have to deal with them one day. And to make enemies they need a flood of propaganda which make it impossible for common people to think. People don’t think anymore and if they think, they feel completely unable to do anything against all that. The result may be wars or a world which is out of control and is not a place where people can have normal lives. As always, common people will have to pay the price for what leaders have done.

    I’m reading just now this article. It’s one of the best articles about the whole situation caused by the war, I think I found it in the Newslinks here:

    Sorry to break it to you, but he “left” was never for “peace, freedom and working folks”. It was just an excuse. Just as now they are for “blacks, feminists, gay, and transgender folks”, but again, it’s just their excuse. The left is and was all about social destruction. That’s all. And left = mostly Jewish folk, non-whites, and a few (self-)destructive Whites.

    The fake “right” is not much better, though. Republicans used to be more for war and for Israel first.

    So I think that the only thing that changed, slightly, is that now Democrats appear to be even more war-mongering and Israel-firsters than the Republicans. Go figure.

    I didn’t write about my shit to valorize the shit part in my experience nor in Fetterman’s, but to acknowledge survival, persistence, overcoming, recognition of a gift; gratitude — all those things.

    Just started reading The Odyssey.
    Talk about heavy-duty shit. But he hung in there, and somehow the story has formed the basis of literature and civilization for millennia.

    Does any person’s educational attainment — or the worthlessness of same; or physical condition — or defects in same — give the “right” to be a senator?

    Or deny the “right” to be a senator?

    AGREE with much of the commentary here – the electoral process in USA is a farce.

    I don’t know who all the candidates, winners or losers, were, but I know a bit about Fetterman and about Braddock. The Pittsburgh Post Gazette, newspaper closest to Fetterman’s Braddock, wrote him off, saying he “lacked maturity” and had little political experience to contribute.

    There was a big fuss about his medical records; the Post said, “If you don’t want to disclose your medical records, don’t run for office.”

    I’m glad he did not disclose his medical records.

    Government intrusions into personal matters in multiple ways is extremely troubling. Fetterman drew a line–drew boundaries around who had a right to know what– that I favor.

    Oz exploded those same boundaries. Bad juju.

How could you dare to say otherwise at any time after 1965? What evidence do you have of this claim? Who? Name names. I want to see a single person who names the jew. No, not even that. I want to see a single person who DOESN’T even name the jew but stands against any of the policies the jews want. That is: a private central bank, infinite nonwhite immigration, the idea of a multicultural society in the first place, the removal of Christianity from all civic life and national law, making faggots and trannies illegal… ANY of these precepts.

    >>And the party as a whole is less inclined than the Democrats to censor those of us who tell the truth about those issues.

    Abject nonsense. The GOP is the party of the Scofield dispensationalist evangelical zionist heretical antichristians. The ones who worship the antichrist of Israel while claiming to be saved by Christ. That’s the foundation of the party. NO ONE in the GOP has stood for anything against jewish wishes since McCarthy was threatened with being murdered unless he dropped his investigation into communist infiltration of the US. The GOP bans anyone who names the jew from serving under their name.

    Congress votes 535:0 on every resolution about Israel that is brought before them. They’re all owned. Always. And at all levels. Federal, state, and local.

    Fetterman’s record would recommend him to liberals, but he is severely disabled, cognitively. Will he improve? Why could they not find another candidate?

    Well commentator Zumbuddi on this site favours Feederman, touting his high end education and devotion to turning around Braddock. In said Braddock he was Mayor for 13 years and accomplished nothing. The Town is dead, decayed but not yet buried. As Mayor Feederman earned $150 a month and with his Harvard credentials etc one wonders why he would want to be Mayor of a town no one ever heard about at a salary even a fast food clerk would reject. Apparently he rarely turned up for Council meetings.

    Fact is Feederman is what you would call a filial parasite, his Mom and Dad having supported him all these years as he never had a job.

    The question Zumbuddi asks is if his disability should prevent the Feeder from being a Senator. When someone asks me such a question touting the educational CV and non-existent accomplishments of some candidate I alway ask a simple question, which is as follows.

    The State Budget of Pennsylvania is $34B. Would any company or individual worth $34B hire Feederman as CEO ? Lets take it down one notch. If Zumbuddi or anyone won $100M in the lottery would they hire Feederman to manage the wealth ?

    Whenever I ask this question I NEVER get a reply because of course the answer would be a resounding NO ! In any case the people who elected this retard will have to suffer the consequences of their vote along with those who did not vote for this undead Zombie.

    It is as simple as that but its one of the indications as to why the USA is on a downward slope to ruin. First the slip and then the stumble and finally the fatal fall. The US government is not noted for geniuses even when they are healthy and normal. With Feederman we are not scraping the bottom of the barrel, we have actually demolished the bottom and have grubbed around for a worm.

    Could they have found another candidate. I answer no. A continually unemployed Jew from a wealthy family who at times does not even know what planet he is on, is the ideal choice. The powers that be do not want anyone with a functioning brain and one that is damaged is much valued, is actually priceless. Hence, we hail Feederman as another loser in a Government that prizes idiots.

    Nationally, there is a shortage of more than 7 million affordable homes for 10.8 million plus extremely low-income families. The average rent on a basic 2 bedroom apartment/home is $1800 per month.

    3 million new illegals, which both putrid parties are complicit, have arrived in the past 12 months. We just added 3 million to eat up and trash our affordable homes.. We know that Catholic Charities and other organizations will make certain the illegals have a wonderful place to live- gratis.

    Again, the white working class will be left out in the cold, living in converted sheds, busted out trailers and in parent’s homes.

    Take a drive through the country and look at all the people living in converted shed- the ones people store their lawnmower and yard tools. Some look cozy and creative but there is not that sturdy pool of equity to draw on if a crisis emerges.

    It’s all unraveling now, faster and faster, the knives are at the ready for the white working class. I predict in the next 4 years, middle class white homes owners will be targeted for black reparations by an eminent domain by a DIE czar.

Both share the blame, but the preponderance of the blame is on the pigs.

    Now we are arriving at a sitaution where some of the dogs are waking up to the reality that they are being used by the pigs. What happens then? If the pigs want their wars they have to start doing the work that they used to give to the dogs.

    The election results are a win because a split congress means gridlock. No chance of total faggotry from either side.

    While there’ll definitely be gridlock on most issues, they somehow manage to pass virtually unanimous resolutions that benefit Occupied Palestine. Funny how that works, huh?

    Didn’t the CIA start out during World War II under FDR? And then under Truman? My impression is the CIA has always been dominated by Catholics like the Dulles’s. And that’s the reason we got involved with Vietnam to prop up the Catholic government in South Vietnam.

    Fact-check your impressions.

    Born in Washington, D.C., John Foster Dulles was one of five children and the eldest son born to Presbyterian minister Allen Macy Dulles and his wife, Edith (née Foster).

    Allen Welsh Dulles . . . was the first civilian Director of Central Intelligence (DCI), and its longest-serving director to date. . . .
    Dulles was … one of five children of Presbyterian minister Allen Macy Dulles, and his wife, Edith (née Foster) Dulles. He was five years younger than his brother, John Foster Dulles, Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Secretary of State and chairman and senior partner of Sullivan & Cromwell…

    Dulles was recruited into the Office of Strategic Services by William J. Donovan in October 1941…
    After the war in Europe, Dulles served for six months as the OSS Berlin station chief and later as station chief in Bern.

    The Office of Strategic Services was dissolved in October 1945 and its functions transferred to the State and War Departments….

    During 1949 he co-authored the Dulles–Jackson–Correa Report, which was sharply critical of the Central Intelligence Agency, which had been established by the National Security Act of 1947 [that is, after FDR’s death & under Truman admin]. Partly as a result of the report, Truman named a new Director of Central Intelligence, Lieutenant General Walter Bedell Smith.

    Zombie Biddi is a bit of a dunderhead. Who cares about his brain stroke and his recovery. Sob sob !! As such, as a retard he feels a bond with the Feederman, you know, two half wits make one complete wit.

    Using Zombie Boddi’s rationale I would say that if he cut off his willy and had a Hasbara Doctor install a hairy slit, he would expect us all to support the tranny lifestyle. Where logic is concerned it looks like Zumbuddi’s stroke destroyed some vital parts of his brain box.

    So I want to ask this fool again. Would he hire this Frankenstein creation to manage his affairs ? I think not ! Feederman is too freakish to even be considered for the circus. Even if he were 100% healthy the man looks weird but that said it looks like many recovering stroke victims voted for this creature.

    As I said before, the good citizens of PA will have to cope with this village idiot. That includes Zoombuddy who might burst another blood vessel once this Undead takes his seat in the Senate.

    Jews are switching to the GOP in significant numbers: (1)

    Jewish electorate — some 65 percent according to the poll — still vote Democrat, support for the Republican party is steadily rising, with 33 percent of respondents voting red, up from 30 percent in 2020 and 24 percent in 2016.

    issues include “reducing the skyrocketing costs of living, combating rising hate crime, championing school choice, putting America first on the world stage again by supporting our allies in Israel, and standing shoulder-to-shoulder- with the Jewish community in the fight against antisemitism,” Markstein told the Jerusalem Post on Wednesday.

    He noted “a record-smashing level of support in Florida, at 45% of the Jewish vote.”

    In New York, Jewish Republican candidate Rep. Lee Zeldin tried to oust Democratic incumbent Gov. Kathy Hochul but failed. Zeldin received between 80 percent-90 percent support of Hasidic neighborhoods in Brooklyn and an overwhelming percentage of the Orthodox Jewish vote.

    This is unsurprising, and it represents a long term trend. The new MAGA GOP embraces Judeo-Christian values.

    Those who do not like Jews will have to fashion something out the Democrat party that makes SJW Muslims their leaders — Ilhan “Incest” Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Keith Ellison, etc. These are the dominant voices espousing & setting the goals of Islamic values in America.

    Can anyone name a Muslim Republican elected to any major office? Mehmet Oz would have been a breakthrough, but it did not happen.

    Intuition: The Republicans will nominate someone other than Trump as their presidential candidate against Biden or his replacement. The Republican Party has had enough of Trump. Quite obvious.

    We all know how Trump is though. My intuition is that Trump will run for president as an independent (not the Republican Party nominee) and will obviously be destroyed by the media. Either Biden or his successor will easily win the 2024 presidential race because Republican voters will be split between the Party nominee and Trump.

    Trump will have caused the Democrat victory because he can’t take no for an answer from mainstream Republicans or anyone.

    But the media and Democrats WANT Trump to run as an independent and will secretly be working behind the scenes to get him to run as an independent and get MAGA voters to vote for him even while they are destroying him.

    That is how politics works in America today. Just my intuition.

    Dulles worked in the OSS, forerunner of the CIA, during WWII. The CIA was established by Truman after WWII. After a short tenure by its first head, Dulles became it longtime head. He established the covert operations branch, which was not part of the CIA’s charter. Truman recommended the CIA’s covert operations branch be eliminated in an op-ed published in the Washington Post one month to the day after JFK’s assassination. JFK had signed an order transferring all CIA military-style operations to the military, essentially disbanding its covert operations. That order was discarded when JFK was killed.

    Dulles’ career before WWII was as a lawyer for large bankers, hiding vast amounts of money. They may have remained his primary loyalty after he took the helm of the CIA.

    Muslims do not have a 50% divorce rate and 50% of their congregations porn addicts the way Christians do. Your use of sexual slander is a classic MoeSad technique of infiltrating and undermining a culture for Jewish takeover. When the US invaded Iraq in 2003 they borrowed from the Israeli playbook and flooded Baghdad with pornography and prostitution. Your obsessions about sexual perversion perfectly reflect this Zionist approach to degrading dignified cultures. We can only shudder to imagine the sexual sin and perversion hiding in your own closet.

    You responded to Geokat’s comment of ‘More like Judeo-subverted Christian values’ with :

    Anything is better than your sexually deviant Iranian (or possibly Pakistani) SJW Muslim values.

    It looks like Geokat has gotten under your skin, in view of your knee-jerk response in defence of Talmudic malfeasance.

    We’d all be better off siding with the Iranians and Pakistanis rather than with your beloved Apartheid Israeli state, the latter being nothing more than a parasitic abomination that is shunned by anyone with a conscience.

    I noticed that your comrades in the Anglo-Zionist empire hierarchy manoeuvred to depose then Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan earlier this year and tried to assassinate him last week :

    https://www.9news.com.au/world/imran-khan-shooting-former-pakistan-pm-reportedly-injured-in-convoy-shooting/0fcb4edc-1991-45e1-a034-4d4f0f7730e6

    Imran Khan is a Pakistani national treasure and confirmed 9/11 Truther (according to Dr Kevin Barrett), that has been a thorn in the side of the Zio cabal for quite some time.

    But rest assured, he’ll be back and will reestablish Pakistan firmly within the orbit of the Sino-Russian super hegemon.

    Imran Khan is head and shoulders a superior statesman to anything the Zionists can conjure up.
    Let’s face it, the best you’ve got to offer is that rodent and war criminal Bibi Netanyahoo.

    And another thing: the great cardiologist Dr. Oz missed an important opportunity to broadcast a public health message.

    According to the American Heart Association,
    Deadly Type of Stroke Increasing Among Younger and Middle-Aged Adults.

    Instead of using his platform to caution and counsel young and middle-age American males on how to stay healthy, Oz mocked Fetterman, who was recovering from a stroke and who acknowledged that he was now paying more attention to his health-habits.

  171. Democrats had an edge in idealism vis-a-vis the Republicans who were more supportive of wealth and power.

    Over time, especially under Clinton, Democrats won over the powerful and the rich. Therefore, one might figure Republicans would have gained in idealism as Democrats gained in power/wealth. But Democrats got the wealth/power and kept the conceit of idealism while Republicans have had nothing to offer.

    The rich and powerful saw less value from GOP when they could get all the globalist goodies from the Democrats. And the GOP failed to gain any idealism points by appealing to those who have less and are destroyed by the system. Instead, GOP whores itself even further by trying to be more pro-Israel and more pro-rich. The one thing Trump did with GOP Congress was cut taxes for the super-rich. So, how did Jews and the super-rich respond to GOP’s whore moves? They kicked Trump into the dirt just the same.

    If you lose in idealism, make sure you gain in power. If you lose in power, make sure you gain in idealism. But GOP lost one and failed to gain any in the other.

    GOP is done, but then is the HBD community much different? Jews have marginalized the figures but all we hear from most of HBD is stuff about black crime but nothing about the Jewish Hand behind BLM.

    Muslims do not have a 50% divorce rate and 50% of their congregations porn addicts the way Christians do.

    They have a lower divorce rate but we don’t know if they have less of a problem with porn.

    How are we supposed to determine that? Buy polling in Iran? That’s like polling women to get their weight.

    My guess is that everyone country with internet access has problems with porn.

    The Muslim countries may have it worse since the men are separated from the women. It could well be more of an addiction to them as it serves as an outlet.

    Anecdotally I knew a few Muslims in college and they sure as hell weren’t any less perverted than the White students. Islam definitely didn’t take away their sex drive. They would even tell me about how they jerked off with the correct hand.

    I think all the Judeo inspired religions cause sexual angst. They have their positive traits but the issue of sex is not one of them. For the record I don’t support degenerate culture or the mainstreaming of porn. I just think the Christian/Muslim/Jewish take is a bit off the mark.

    This isn’t a good long-term solution, voting on the grounds that the other side being the most deplorable at the moment will just result in the pendulum always swinging back and forth amongst the two wings of the corrupt uniparty. Not to say there’s any, easy or simple solution. The system itself is rotten to the core.

    Everyone under 40 should read “A Generation of Sociopaths’ by Bruce Gibney. It’s one piece of the puzzle. America is a gerontocracy that was ruined largely under the leadership of one particular demographic, which now hold a vastly disproportionate share of the nation’s wealth. They took up neoliberalism and comprise the worst ideas, and worst politicians, of both parties, looting America under Reagan-era conservatism and woke neoliberalism.

    Part of the solution is ending the gerontocracy by sending all the geezers of both parties packing.
