Donald Trump has stumbled and fallen, and the establishment is not going to let slip this last opportunity to stomp him and his movement to death.

On Sunday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued a startling ultimatum:

Either Vice President Mike Pence and the Trump Cabinet invoke the 25th Amendment, declare the president “unfit” for office, and remove him within 24 hours, or House Democrats will vote to impeach him again.

As the Senate, which would have to hear the case and hold the trial, does not meet again until Jan. 19, the day before Joe Biden is inaugurated, what is going on here? It sounds absurd, like rushing to hang a man who is going to die the next day.

But such is the blind hatred of Pelosi’s House for Donald Trump.

Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina suggests holding off sending a bill of impeachment to the Senate for 100 days, to give Biden a chance to get his appointees confirmed, and then indict and convict Trump of sedition when he is a private citizen.

What would be the purpose of impeaching a president who hasn’t been president for three months?

Answer: A conviction would strip Republicans of the right to reelect the man who got the largest number of votes in their party’s history.

House Democrats want veto power over whom Republicans can nominate. And this is the crowd that does not cease to bray about its devotion to “democracy.”

What are the specific grounds for impeaching Trump?

In the first draft of the resolution of impeachment, apparently, the crime is “incitement to insurrection.”

Yet, in his Wednesday speech on the mall, Trump declared, “We’re going to cheer on brave senators and congressmen and -women, and we’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them.”

Trump added, “Everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”

Nowhere in Trump’s remarks was there a call to violence or to invade the Capitol building, or to engage in the mob criminality that took place under the Capitol dome Wednesday afternoon.

But the effort to disgrace and drive Trump from an office he will vacate in 10 days is only a part of the general purge that is underway against conservatives, Republicans and Trumpists.

Twitter and Facebook — the social media megaphones Trump has used to communicate with some 80 million followers — have terminated the president’s personal accounts.

Apple, Amazon and Google have cut ties to the social media website Parler, which is popular among conservatives.

The goal of Big Tech is censorship — to circumscribe Trump’s capacity to communicate with his followers, and then to cripple the capacity of the right to communicate with one another.

And this is being applauded by individuals who see themselves as acolytes of the First Amendment.

Now calls are coming from home-state newspapers and colleagues for Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz to resign from the Senate. And for what?

During Mike Pence’s reading of the count during a joint session on Jan. 6, Cruz and Hawley called for debate on the electoral vote counts of Arizona and Pennsylvania.

What Hawley and Cruz did was not only permissible under the statute, it was also supported by more than 100 GOP members of the House.

Now, Cumulus Media, which has more than 400 radio stations and employs some of the most popular conservative talk-radio hosts in the nation, has warned its on-air personalities to stop suggesting the election of 2020 was stolen from Trump — or face termination.

Said Brian Philips, vice president of content at Cumulus, in an internal memo: We “will not tolerate any suggestion that the election has not ended. The election has been resolved and there are no alternate acceptable ‘paths.'”

“If you transgress this policy,” says Philips, “you can expect to separate from the company immediately.”

Major corporations have begun to instruct their Political Action Committees to halt contributions to Republican legislators who support Trump. And some of Trump’s Cabinet officers and White House staff have bailed out on him.

“Count your friends when you’re down,” Richard Nixon said.

On Jan. 21, Democrats will control the Senate, the House and the White House. Big Tech, Big Business, Big Media will all be on board.

ORDER IT NOW

They will be led, however, by a president and vice president who are in their offices not because of the great campaign they conducted and the brilliant case they made — but because Americans voted in the most massive turnout in history, 74 million for Trump and 81 million against Trump.

As for the GOP, it should follow in these difficult days the counsel of LBJ when things were going bad: “Just hunker down like a mule in a hailstorm. And let the wild wind blow. And the sun will come out again in the morning.”

In two years, the pendulum will swing back to the right, for it now has nowhere else to go.

    Basically Pelosi wants Republicans to put their opinion of Trump on record, so the voters know who supported him and who didn’t. This might benefit the Democrats in the mid-terms if Trump is still radioactive in 2022. Most likely Republicans won’t be in attendance to vote.

  4. In two years, the pendulum will swing back to the right, for it now has nowhere else to go.

    Will the Repulicans even have a base after this? Who wants to go back to the same old Republican swindles now? The Newt Gingriches, John Boehners, and Mitch McConnells of the world are no better than Democrats. I’d say that their business first policies that destroyed traditional demographics and exported the economy were worse for their base than anything the Democrats have done. Where would the Democrats be today without Republican traitors?

    He didn’t mean to do it, but Trump showed that the President is nothing but a puppet, the media is controlled, and the system a joke. Who cares what happens to Trump and his family now? He unwittingly did his job, and can now go away. Trump was always a traitor to his base, so he should have no allies.

    The Republican party is dead and deserves to die. It is a party that detests, and refuses to represent, its base. Good riddance to the Republican party and to Donald Trump. May they all burn in hell. Their policies over the last 50 years have been a disaster for the people that they claim to represent.

  5. Mr. Buchanan describes most sad issues concisely.

    But his optimism about pendulums swinging back is as realistic as expecting that the pendulum in the Roman empire, the Greek empire, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Detroit or Malmö will swing back.

    In 4 more years of absolute unabated media tyranny, the right wing can be lucky if they don’t get locked out of airplanes, supermarkets, banks, phone service, and, of course, no medical service for „racist“. Web sites? Not a chance. Domain names? Will be stolen by the registrar. The internet archive will be removed, by persecution or by bribe. Google can afford a Billion to then destroy the internet archive, proof of old censored removed content. They are doing the same with WhatsApp.

    The brainwashing from kindergarten to college, work, and grave will be further improved.

    Vote fraud will have been perfected. If Trump cannot control voter fraud, imagine Biden, Kamala, and Pelosi! Who will call out voter fraud in 4 years?

    Millions of pro Trump geezers will die, tens of million leftists voters will get citizenship, family reunification, unlimited open borders will bring another batch of tens of millions.

    All critical voices will be fired, removed from all jobs, „racists“ and white supremacists will not even get a street sweeper job and start living in shanty towns like in South Africa.

    Trump was the last chance to stop this take-over.

  6. This future is almost unavoidable. In the USA. Europe will have a different, but not much better fate.

    Block sales, credit cards, banking, for “racists”. Denying electricity, groceries, housing, banking will be next?

    https://truthrevolution.net/amazon-tommy-robinson/

    Free businesses can deny service to whoever they wish, except to protected “minorities”. “Right wing” “racist” might die of hunger living under a bridge. What prevents businesses from denying housing (like Airbnb does), groceries, department stores, shopping centers, all banking and financial services (like Patreon, PayPal, MasterCard already do). Blocking access to social media is already happening, domain names are already being taken away ßßß, internet services and cell phone services can be denied soon. The businesses do not need to collude, it just happens that Diners is not interested in providing services to “Nazis” that get refused service by PayPal, Patreon, Visa. Nor does Facebook publish the video of those kicked out from YouTube, domain names are being taken away by domain registrars. International travel can also easily be blocked, by countries blocking admission (Jared Taylor is blocked from the EU Schengen zone), Donald Trump was almost blocked from Britain, Robert Spencer and Richard Spencer cannot enter Britain. People can be financially ruined: Alex Jones or Colin Flaherty had, probably, tens of thousands of dollars of monthly income from Youtube,. Akif Pirinçci’s book sales were mostly blocked from Amazon, from book stores, by his own editors. The book ban includes Pirinçci’s earlier totally inoffensive cat romance books.

    “No beer for Nazis” is the motto of restaurants. Supermarket chains and shopping centers can join the ban. The few neighborhood grocery stores that would still provide service will stop doing so after a few being torched by BLM and Antifa, with typical police inaction and impunity. It is also OK to stop people from leaving their house, by being physically threatened, without police protection, see “Is it ok to punch a racist” by NYT. A few “Islamophobes” like Geert Wilders are still protected by around the clock police guards. Children of AfD members have been kicked out of private schools!

    “Most massive” is right, Pat.

    The dead walked, mail-in ballots appeared by magic, and what else will the future find?

    US elections are now morality plays. In this one, tranny story hour and BLM peaceful demonstrations burning cities down won.

    So we know our new government’s morals — it ain’t got none. So batten down the hatches this is going to be a rough trip.

  8. because Americans voted in the most massive turnout in history, 74 million votes were counted for Trump and 81 million against Trump.

    We know how many votes were counted; we don’t know how many Americans actually voted.

    In two years, the pendulum will swing back to the right, for it now has nowhere else to go.

    Will it? After two election cycles of Dems counting votes for days after the election to change results to their advantage and getting away with it with impunity, what makes you thing the pendulum hasn’t been tied to the left for 2022 and beyond?

    The pendulum is broken. It won’t swing anywhere. The GOP is finished, and maybe better that way. They never represented white working-class people, only Big Business. It’s almost funny to see now Big Tech Billionaires who benefitted from all those tax breaks and from the four years of a good stock market with Trump now turning against him.

    The right (as political expression in the current system) is dead. However, it will likely express itself in other ways (violence, terrorism, eventually a coup or civil war, who knows…). Western liberal democracy is finished, the options now are a technocratic authoritarian system (now basically almost put in practice with the Covid experiment) or a collapse of the whole system, and chaos afterwards.

    We will see… But to trust in the GOP for any help for white working-class people is useless…

    No, Trump did not “incite” anyone. If anyone is guilty of incitement it’s top Democrats and media personalities on left wing cable news during 4-5 months long BLM and antifa riots in 2020. Based on the standards they are applying to Trump they should be removed from office, banned for all social media and payment processers and barred from political office for life.

    I think we all remember BLM inspired assassinations of police officers and white people based on baseless media claims of white on black police brutality. CNN, MSNBC and the alphabet networks are Qanon for the left.

    I have no emotional attachment to Trump like so many but fair is fair.

    What the Democrats are doing is forcing future GOP presidential candidates to reject Trump and Trumpism based on what transpired in the Capitol. They know if they succeed it will enrage and demoralize large numbers of right of center voters and encourage them to stay home on election day.

    But at this point the GOP is so worthless it may not matter. Future GOP candidates will have a platform of race pandering and special privileges for non-whites and endless wars for Israel.

  12. Trump added, “Everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”

    None of the agitators and rioters attended Trump’s speech at the Ellipse. The agitators had megaphones that would have been confiscated at the Secret Service checkpoints if they had tried to enter, and the rioters began breaking into the Capitol while Trump was still speaking over a mile away.

  13. @SINCERITY.net

    By and large, this would seem an accurate assessment. Once Biden the Camel is in power, expect Dystopia to commence, if we aren’t there already.

    I still think there is a chance, though, if the crazies overplay their hand too soon. A peaceful end to this story looks very unlikely at this point, but white Americans are not yet as badly off as the Boers. American demographics (both relative and absolute) offer a much better chance for a remant to fight free of the coming USSA.

    The trouble is whether the will is there. Will a sufficiently large and active segment of our population wake up in time? We can’t be sure, and there are good reasons not to be too optimistic, but all is not yet lost. The Fall of Trump has redpilled a lot of people, and the future will do more of that.

    One thing is certain, though: either way, the “United States of America” will go down in history as the most hated empire of all time. Americans and invaders alike will despise it to the depths of their souls. The former for betraying them, the latter because they just hate everything once built by civilized men that reminds them of their own eternal inferiority.

  14. Last Wednesday Trump could’ve taken over Washington and gone down in history as the man who saved America. He dithered and now he’s going to jail for life instead, as are many of his supporters and his family’s name will be scorned forever.

  16. @OilcanFloyd

    Indeed, and speaking as a person who twice voted for Trump, his ignorance and narcissism led to his own demise. How could he and those who advise him not realize they were heading into a Deep State trap last Wednesday? Saker, in his featured article today, makes the case that Trump’s MAGA army was suckered in when they easily entered the Capitol building with only token police resistance.

    How many “agent provocateurs” and undercover cops were mixed in with or leading Trump’s deluded fanatics? And, with the distinct probability of violence occurring, where was the National Guard? Why did Trump run back to the WH instead of leading the march, as he said he would? Those now facing years in prison for daring to trespass into this “House of Ill-Repute” will have plenty of time to reflect on how much their Dear Leader used and abused them.

    I feel a little sorry for those Congressmen and Senators who stuck their necks out to back the president in their mutual belief that the election was stolen. Due to the perfect timing of the Capitol’s breech, they never had the chance to make their arguments, and now they are being blackballed, even by many traitors within their own party. Josh Hawley, who was a rising star in the populist wing, lost his book deal with Simon and Schuster, and is now facing demands that he be booted out of the Senate, not to mention the death threats to his whole family.

    In the end, Trump’s true face really showed. It was always all about him. He is the person most responsible for the coming crack-down on his Deplorables. Any republican would have to be an idiot to want Trump to run again in 4 years.

Trump, with his checkered past was compromised, and never the answer. If such a man (or men) never materializes, then the dystopian vision Klaus Schwab has for us may be inevitable.

    Paul Ryan, Mitt, Jeb!, Marco, Mitch, and the rest of them, are worse than AOC and the Squad; whose hatred for White America is as open and vociferous as Ryan’s lies and betrayals were covert.

Let’s see how well demonizing the productive members of society will be for America, as we’re about to go whole hog into more wars for Israel, as they wage a concurrent war against Heritage America here at home.

    The GOP must die. This is one of the redeeming consequences of the Trump phenomena. Like Trump’s war with the ((media)), the way the GOP has always betrayed Middle America to its enemies on Wall Street and J-Street, and Tel Aviv, is about to come home to roost, and it’s hard to imagine a more deserving den of snakes than Cuckservative Inc.

    Trump is a very flawed man, and he did his share of crimes for Zion. But at the end of the day, there were no new wars for Israel, and perhaps that, more than anything else, is why they’re screeching for his head on a platter.

    Trump uses legal means to achieve goals. To say that he is out of options is, simply, foolish and idiotic. He can:
    1) Use all the data collected from laptops to indict all the treasonous members of Congress before they vote.
    2) Use the Insurrection Act to take control of the media centers in NY, DC, LA, Seattle, and most importantly, SF.
    3) Use his 75 million vetted supporters, who are overwhelmingly the actual producers in this country, to strangle, choke, and remove all the newcomers who owe no loyalty to the historic USA and the disloyal white elites.

    If there is to be a civil war, it will be quick and devastating. I would not want to be a non-Trump supporter.

    If Trump does none of those things, he still has beaucoups of data on all the dirty dealings by Pelosi the Nasty, Kamilla the Whore, and Biden the Mindless to keep them at bay for years.

    Or, he could go to Fox. Their ratings would explode.

    Are you Serious? The riot was to overturn a legitimate election and re-install Trump. Trump was never threatened. He sat (despite promises to be at the barricade) looking at lemmings he sent into combat on Cable-TV.

    Trump didn’t “stumble and fall” – he lit a putsch. What he couldn’t do in a fair election, he counted on family, acolytes, and a mob to finish in a violent coup. Watched with satisfaction while munching junk food and sodas protected by Secret Service in the White House.

    Trump failed to overturn an election he overwhelmingly lost (popular and electoral vote), plain and simple. Litigated in dozens of unsuccessful lawsuits (many before Republican judges), votes recounted multiple times (most by GOP officials).

    That’s your ‘victim’ Pat? A guy who did his best (and succeeded with five deferments and a final medical disqualification for ‘bone-spurs’) to avoid service when you were demonizing leftist draft-dodgers for Nixon. Any remorse?

    Of course they shouldn’t impeach Trump. A witless enterprise bestowing partisan martyrdom. Censure him with his House and Senate Groupies. Then deprive them of funding via pressure on donors.

    Ignore Trump, the greatest injury he can suffer. Then prosecute him for sedition/treason as a private citizen stripped of privilege. Poor/Rich Bone-Spurs Tax deadbeat Donald.

    Whad’ya think about these gems from prominent GOP Trump supporters:

    “Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass.”
    – Rep. Morris ‘Mo’ Brooks Stop the Steal Rally Washington DC 6 Jan 2021

    “Get the firing squads ready. Pence goes FIRST.”
    – L. Lin Wood on Parler 7 Jan 2021

    OK with that Pat? Give us a hint.

    Pat simply hasn’t noticed that these “individuals” he is referring to stopped being acolytes of the Bill of Rights once they had come into power. They simply never refer to freedom of speech because they don’t believe in it.

    Revealingly, these same (((liberals))) who have consistently supported court-ordered de-segregation action in America are entirely comfortable with court-sanctioned segregation, warmongering, and ethnic cleansing when conducted by the Jewish State.

    The Democrats and Deep State have engineered the most massive electoral fraud to enable a senile old man to become President. Even if the pendulum swings back to the “right”, massive electoral fraud will be used to ensure the Democrats still have a majority. Even if the Republicans regain Congress, to what avail would it be ? The Republicans are nearly all conservatives in name only. They are merely another branch of the Deep State Establishment.

    2) by murdering Iran’s top general on Iraqi soil – plus a dozen Iraqi Shi’a militia commanders – Trump has reignited the war in Iraq

    Sure, a continued occupation and some very egregious assassinations, to be sure.

    No argument there. And Trump deserves the full weight of international and well as domestic condemnation for those crimes.

    But even so, he didn’t start any new wars.

    Trump was supposed to take out Iran. To send it reeling into the stone age- a la Libya, and finish the job in Syria.

    Had he done so, he would have his second term.

    All of the rage at Trump, as far as I can see, is due to his stubborn unwillingness to bomb Iran and destroy that nation utterly.

    Poor Sheldon (now rotting in hell) felt terribly betrayed by Trump! When Trump appointed Sheldon’s boy Bolton, it was supposed to be a done deal. Trump would destroy Iran.

    But he didn’t.

    Do you remember the only time the media were all gushing at Trump’s presidential leadership. ‘Now’ he’s acting like a president, CNN/MSNBC/ABC/CBS/NBC/NYT and all the rest of them gushed. It was when he (illegally) bombed Syria (based on obvious lies).

    Bombing Israel’s well-earned enemies is how you win presidencies, duh!

    Put Trump refused to bomb Iran, even after some convenient ‘provocations’. Like the drones taking out Saudi oil facilities.

    Trump is a flawed man, and a disappointment on many levels. But I’m utterly convinced that he knew he could have had his second term, and legacy as a ‘great president’, if he’d only capitulated vis-a-vis destroying Syria and Iran.

    It was his refusal to do so, that doomed his political future. And he knew and knows that.

    And perhaps it’s that, his knowledge of what was expected of him, and his refusal to comply, that actually redeems the man’s soul, and actual legacy.

    Iran want’s him tried for war crimes, and well they should. But I wonder, if the people and leadership of Iran, really understood the kind of pressure brought to bear on Trump, to destroy their nation utterly, like was done to Libya, for instance, if they’d still feel the same way.

    Especially as the ((cabinet)) being put together by Biden, (and especially the (((State Dept.)))) is looking every bit like Iran’s best friend on the planet was none other than Donald J. Trump.

He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

    If Paul Ryan and Mitt and the Bush crime family, looked and sounded like Maxine, then millions of patriotic, honest and decent Americans would never have voted for them.

    But it’s because they say thing like ‘Jesus’, (as Dubya was fond of saying) and ‘God bless America’, that tricks the American people into thinking they’re one of them, when in fact they’re their worst enemies.

    In the great scheme of things, AOC is a thousand times more honest, with a thousand times the integrity of a Mike Pence or Carl Rove or Dick Cheney.

    When Omar froths her hatred of Trump, it’s because she honestly hates white men with a seething psychosis.

    But when Republican in good standing- Liz Cheney spits her venom, she’s doing so in fealty to the worst enemies her constituents have ever known.

    https://thehill.com/homenews/house/533024-liz-cheney-blames-trump-for-riots-he-lit-the-flame

    I understand that a lot of POC hate unapologetic white men. I understand why the blacks of South Africa and Zimbabwe would rather starve, than eat the scraps off the table of another race.

    Their hatred and rancor is at least honest, whereas Cheney’s vicious bile is done so in treachery and guile. AOC serves the minority angst, and does so out in the open.

    Cheney’s perfidy is a ruse, and is calculated to do to maximum harm to the very people she pretends to represent.

    Dante’s ninth circle was reserved for those who betray a people’s trust. AOC and Omar are not betraying anything other than their oath to honor the Constitution. (Something they all [Ron Paul excepted] betray).

    But Cheney and Mitt and Ryan and Rove and Bush and the entire length and breath of the GOP, are all headed to Dante’s n’th. And well they should.

    It’s the dagger that’s stuck in the back, that doesn’t just take a life, but takes something ineffably precious, our trust.

    When our trust is betrayed, (especially to our worst enemies, as Liz Cheney is guilty of), then this is a sin for which even the devil himself is loath to commit.

    For that sin, you must not just be a mortal human, but a POS lower than dog puke in the dirt.

    And that’s what Cheney is. Lower than dog puke in the dirt. Because dog puke in the dirt never had a chance to be anything but. Whereas Liz Cheney and Mitt and the rest of the ‘Never Trumpers’, all had an opportunity to be decent human beings, but they made a choice to deceitfully serve the enemies of the people who trust them, so that they could get some scraps from ZOG’s table. Perhaps a private jet, or reelection. But their souls are surely damned.

    Liz Cheney may eat expensive foods and enjoy luxuries galore, but at what price – compared to her very soul?

    When she walks into a room in Wyoming, full of supporters from her district, she knows in her black heart that she is selling out those people and their children over to their worst enemies. While they give her perks and wealth and power, to protect theirs and their children’s interests.

    They trust her, and she uses that trust to betray them, and their children – over to their enemies.

    Here’s the quintessential Republican. I consider this an iconic photo op for the smirking chimp.

    Perhaps that man lost his son. Rudy and everyone else knew those firefighters were going to their deaths, and urged them on. The more deaths, the better.

    Trumpers will either unite and fight or let the USA be flushed down the toilet.

    Buchanan has become irrelevant. Nobody cares about the nattering nabob of Nixonia any more. Especially one who uses “consider” more that Zionists use “terror.”

    her desire to impeach Trump on his last day in office is widely shared by our politial class indicates that we Deplorables are well and truly fucked as long as we remain in her jurisdiction.

    You’re right, of course that it isn’t Trump who the ogress and her cohorts despise, but us Deplorables. We of the grassroots, productive, law-abiding, have a gender, likely own guns, and most of all, unapologetically white, never realized just how much we’re hated for having those qualities.

    Trump is simply a lodestone for all the rancor this people simmer with for Joe the Plumber. Who is the real object of their collective hatred. Joe and his sons and daughters.

    But all those scores of millions of white Americans never really understood just how much they’re hated for being what they are. Now they’re going to find out, and it will be interesting to see to what extent they’ll absorb the slings and arrows, and submit to the racial hatred that’s going to be unleashed upon them, with the full weight of America’s federal government, (and courts and law enforcement and assorted institutions and corporations). Big Tech wants them emasculated utterly. We saw how Big Jew feels about them during the Holodomor.

    Now it gets really interesting…

    And I agree with you about the therapeutic oasis Mr. Unz has created and maintains. One only wonders for how long they’ll suffer Mr. Unz and the rest of us to continue speaking the truth, when the basis of their power is ubiquitous and universally enforced lies.

    how our “elite” leaders in the rePUKE really feel about poor or working class Whites. Of course, one who wasn’t blind, deaf, and dumb could have told you this years ago, but I guess Tucker knew that some of those Whites who stay loyal to the rePUBES can’t quite figure it out yet

    I like Tucker, but I haven’t watched him since I cut off all paid subscription Talmud Vision. Except for when someone hosts or links to a video of his show.

    He seems like a normal guy who interviews ‘woke’ people who tell him whites are a flawed people and guilty, and his brow furrows as if he’s speaking to a retarded and demented child. Which, in a way of course, he is.

    Fascism involved Imperial Roman notions of political and economic authority. The state would direct the corporations in the interests of the Populus or Volk. Hence, the term Corporate State.

    In present day America, the oligarchs, those who control the large corporations, tell the state what to do. This is done inter alia by sponsoring political parties or politicians, using the MSM to destroy their opponents and various forms of bribery and coercion. They want ever more profits, so laws permitting ever increasing 3rd World immigration have been passed. Likewise, laws permitting the offshoring of whole industries. This enables them to produce goods at 3rd World wages and sell at 1st World prices..

    Ultimately, they want a situation in which the only laws the corporations obey are the ones made by themselves. The nation state must be dissolved, and traditional institutions, beliefs and values which stand in their way undermined and destroyed. Hence their promotion of the Globohomo Agenda. They don’t defend the interests of the Volk, they despise them and want them replaced by non-white immigrants.

    So since WWII, and especially in the last 30 years America has become a Corporatist State, a state dominated by the interests of Oligarchs. The very heavy Jewish involvement in all of this is obvious for all to see. So Ziocorporatist would be better. The United States exists no longer, it’s Ziocorp America.

    Paul Craig Roberts is retired. It’s obvious he produces all his own stuff as they are internally consistent and coherent. Of course, he doesn’t have a lucrative syndicated column.
    In the last few years, Pat’s columns have declined in rigour and consistency, even compared to 6 or 7 years ago. Other aged columnists like George Will continued their columns well into their 80s, but it widely known that they were being produced by assistants, in the main or in entirety.
    Pat has reached that stage too. So time to retire fully.

    You’re absolutely right about Trump. The attack on the Saudi oil installations in September 2019 was the defining moment of his Presidency. Normally, this would have been casus belli, under any other President.
    But, despite everything, Trump didn’t knuckle under. I strongly suspect that the assassination of Soleimani in January 2020 was a sop to the Zionists and Saudis for not declaring war on Iran.

    There will be no such restraint under Biden. We can only hope that the coming economic collapse will happen quick enough to derail most of their plans.

Separation and/or nullification can be achieved in many ways. One of the more promising ideas is a coalition of counties within or across State lines.

    I don’t think it’s going to take them by surprise. For all their malevolence, they’re not stupid.

    AOC and the Democrats may demand they print 47 or 74 trillion dollars to rebuild the world in wokeness’ image, but the boyz at the Fed/ECB are not going to let them degrade their pet in any meaningful way.

    The only thing, it seems to me that would take them by surprise is if the BRICS nations and many others, all decide they’ve had enough, and drop the currency bomb, and declare they’re no longer to use U.S. dollars, which will cause a cataclysmic global economic catastrophe, but out of the ashes a new economic phoenix will eventually arise that isn’t the fiend’s fount of malignancy.

    I love your optimism WorkingClass, but sadly I have to say I don’t share it.

    If a bastion of sanity were to rise up, and declare a limited sovereignty from ZOG, they’d pull out all the stops to crush it in its womb.

    Look how they declared homo “weddings’ to be the law of the land, from sea to shining sea, and there’s wasn’t a peep of protest from even one governor who said ‘fuck you’, (that I’m aware of)

    I expect there to be a full blown demographic explosion of POC to every last hamlet in the nation where sanity still reigns, funded by the people whose lives they will spare no expense destroying.

    Places like Vermont and Minnesota and New Hampshire, et al, are only liberal because they haven’t’ known diversity up close and personal. But now that the ZUS is a one party nation going forward, even those places will be sent spiraling into the abyss.

    I’d like to think I’m wrong, but the homo weddings and transgender bathrooms and showers met with almost zero resistance.

    BTW, I saw a video recently that pointed out that the exact same people demanding that Big Tech can de-platform anyone they want, because they’re private businesses, and this is still a free country!, are the exact same people who demanded that Christian bakers bake cakes celebrating sodomite “weddings’, or else!

    God what repulsive scum they are!

    {With apologies to actual scum floating on sewage and cesspools everywhere. Sorry about that comparison to liberals, scum. You didn’t deserve that}.

  100. I’m a misanthrope Rurik. I sincerely hope that the human race never escapes this planet. And they won’t. Not before the singularity. After which they will no longer be human. I have neither the chops nor the desire to write a book. But if I did it would be a political book and the title would be The Scum Also Rises.

    What we are dealing with in this century is the emergence of one world government best described by Pepe Escobar as Techno Feudalism. A few will have everything. The rest will have nothing. Forever. Human beings are like the sorceror’s apprentice with their technology. They are simply not able to deal intelligently with the power that it gives them. It is, was and will be used for evil. If humans were intelligent they would be living in peace and prosperity. Or you might say they would still be living in the garden.

    For some reason I have lost my spellcheck. Other than that how am I doing. Am I still optomistic?

    I am suggesting that in the near term the remnant of Western Civilization might yet avoid total annihilation. Webster defines the world as “the earthly state of human existence” If you are a Christian (and/or a misanthrope) you might take comfort in John 18-36. Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world.

    ‘ a boot…’

    If humans were intelligent they would be living in peace and prosperity. Or you might say they would still be living in the garden.

    But isn’t it true that many humans do indeed live in peace and prosperity?

    If left to their own devices, people like the Icelanders or Costa Ricans or even Canadians (for instance) do not collectively kill each other. Even in many places in the ZUS, people if left to their ways, will simply get along, and work towards mutual prosperity.

    What’s so maddening, is that a nation like the U.S., for instance, could have been a big garden of Eden, with prosperity and peace to go around. I remember growing up in the Seventies, and there was hope, and a remarkable dearth of murderous hatred, either for our fellow countrymen, or enemies far and wide. It seems like all it takes to turn the garden of Eden, into a Gaza, is a sufficient number of ‘Swede$’.

    Just imagine WorkingClass, what America would be like, without the Swedes sucking the financial blood, corrupting the institutions, and relentlessly poisoning the spirit of our culture with relentless, relentless, relentless.. Talmudic murderous, genocidal hatred?

    It’s wouldn’t solve the greed problem, (which as you point out is a huge problem), but at least people wouldn’t be ruled by the worst scum on the planet, (which is what rises, like the Clintons and McCains’, when our money [and therefor everything else] is controlled by ‘Swedes’).

    Just consider Russia, who for generations was ravaged by these monsters, until one man was able to wrest the destiny of Russia from their Satanic claw$.

    Perhaps I’m the one who’s the Pollyanna.

    Other than that how am I doing.

    eminently sublime

    My kingdom is not of this world.

    Well, I was raised a Christian, and I’m not quite yet a full-blown misanthrope, but I know there is much that I don’t, and never will perceive, that is yet true and real, however infinitely beyond my faculties.

    A Man willing to go to the cross, to save the souls of His fellow man, is one of those things.

    But yet there are some of these men and women (Joan went to the stake willingly) that have existed throughout history, who sacrifice themselves fighting a fiend, out of love for their people and their God.

    Perhaps there is hope in that, if nothing else.

    The affinity between Trump and Putin (subtext love affair), was obvious in Trump’s obscenely obsequies 16 Jul 2016 love- Helsinki fest. Of course, Trump said, he trusted Vlad (no matter US intelligence agencies).
