Since the death of George Floyd beneath the knee of a cop in Minneapolis on Memorial Day, the nation has been instructed by its cultural elites that this is the daily reality that a racist America has too long ignored

Our nation, it was shouted in our faces, is a place where white cops harass, brutalize, assault and kill Black Americans regularly and with impunity.

“Defund the police!” the Black Lives Matter demand went out, to be echoed and re-echoed by BLM’s amen corner of progressive elites.

The pendulum may be swinging back, for this weekend reintroduced us to the old familiar world.

In Washington, D.C., about midnight Saturday, at a block party in the Southeast sector of the city, three shooters fired 100 rounds, wounded 20, killed a teenager and left a female police officer in critical condition.

It appears to have been an attempted massacre, a slaughter.

“More than 115 people have been slain in the District this year, a 17 percent increase over this time in 2019, which ended the year with a decade high,” reports The Washington Post.

D.C.’s numbers, however, pale by comparison to Chicago, where this weekend recorded 32 more people shot, with three dead.

According to the Sun-Times, there were 106 homicides in the city in July, a single-month body count almost equal to the toll D.C. has piled up in all of the first seven months of 2020.

A disproportionate number of the dead and wounded are Black Americans, and a disproportionate number of the shooters and killers are Black men.

If black lives matter, where is Black Lives Matter?

Rarely in these stories of shootings and killings does one read that the dead were the victims of rogue cops or white supremacists.

Indeed, the front page of Monday’s New York Times gave voice to the city’s Black and Hispanic leaders who are objecting to a proposed $1 billion cut in the police budget. The people in high-crime precincts, for whom these leaders speak, want more, not fewer, cops on the beat.

Even Portland, Oregon, which has been indulging nightly protests since the killing of George Floyd, seems to be awakening to the real world.

When the Department of Homeland Security pulled its agents out of Portland and handed the defense of the Mark Hatfield federal courthouse to the state police, the “peaceful protesters” shifted their attention to the city’s buildings and Portland Police Bureau’s East Precinct.

With police personnel corralled inside, the East Precinct was barricaded with cars and wooden planks, and an attempt was made to set it afire by throwing flaming objects into the building.

Mugged by reality, Mayor Ted Wheeler seems to have belatedly awakened to the character of the protesters he has been coddling:

“When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people whom you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder.”

Equally problematic: “You will be creating the B-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during his campaign.”

ORDER IT NOW

Portland police union president Daryl Turner was enraged at what he had seen. “I am disgusted that our City has come to this,” said Turner. “If it is acceptable for rioters to… try and burn down occupied buildings, and if this conduct is allowed to continue, then Portland is lost.”

Wheeler, having gotten the message the rioters have been trying to deliver, finally ordered his city’s police to do “what is necessary” to quell the rioting, even if it means using tear gas.

What has happened in Portland, and across much of America, was predictable, and predicted.

First, the progressives tolerate and even celebrate civil disobedience, because the cause is just and noble. Then, to hold onto public attention, the protesters march and block traffic. Next comes the cursing of cops, the throwing of trash, water bottles and rocks. Then there’s the smashing of store windows, looting and arson, and Molotov cocktails. Finally, there’s instigating violence with cops to get footage of police fighting back so the law enforcement officers can be painted by the progressive press as stormtroopers and the Gestapo.

In Portland, we reached the point where “peaceful protesters” tried to set a building ablaze with cops barricaded inside.

This, as the mayor said, is attempted murder.

Today, people watch their leaders in city after city fail to keep the peace and restore order as protesters riot at will, and they make plans to move out. In the suburbs and country, they quietly observe the inability of cops to quell the violence, and they buy guns.

While the right backs Trump’s stand for law and order, the ultimate battle here may be between liberal Democrats elected to, and failing to, run the cities, and the radical left and Marxists who welcome their failure as they intend to kick the liberals down the stairs.

    Oh great, the crypto-marxist elites are in fear of losing their tax base. Now that Portland is implicitly identified as a white anarchist protest the gloves can come off. How about we focus on the real story?

    A sizeable portion of the US population is utterly hostile to the fundamental pillars of civilized society. An ethnic subgroup that has been foisted up as a sacred cow beyond reprimand; they have now revealed their final form. After decades of coddling and accomodation the chickens have come home to roost. Mr. (Dr.?) Buchanan’s analysis misses the mark, as boomers are wont to do. Their draw hand is hobbled. Criticism of the swarthy is verboten in those circles. I get it, you have books to sell. Sell sell sell. The Jew wins again. Milk the urban youth for record deals, poach the (barely) competent ones and groom them for infiltration into government. The thread is broken and the sword plummets towards the nape of America. Is there a solution to the NQ? Only a final one.

    The State failed long ago, and the George Floyd crap is tiring – that incident was the tiny spark that set the inevitable in motion.
    And pack your shit folks – it’s gonna get worse.

  3. anonymous[245] • Disclaimer says:

    With the next Most Important Election Ever less than a dozen weeks away, Mr. Buchanan is, of course, microwaving 1968 “silent majority” political leftovers.

    But why in this hand wrung word salad do we see the capitalization of “Black” and even “Hispanic” but the lower case “white”? Is that from the same intern who cherishes socially distanced cookouts in Georgetown and came up with the mealy mouthed “death of George Floyd beneath the knee of a cop” in the first sentence?

    Consider.

    On June 2, he said that “the killing of George Floyd was an atrocity that cries out for justice,” while on June 9, Mr. Buchanan called it “the sadistic public execution of George Floyd.” He has since repeatedly used the word “killing.” But now, in light of more video evidence, it was “beneath the knee of a cop.” That’s passively equivalent to “atop a concrete sidewalk” or “inside a nylon shirt.”

    At least Fred Reed the other day had the guts (at the end of an unrelated column) to admit that he had fallen for the Establishment narrative. You won’t see that here because Mr. Buchanan serves that Establishment as Stagehand Right in the Beltway puppet show.

    Like I said under the previous column, reading these things closely and consistently is a needful chore, like cleaning the litter box. Any more rebuttal today from those who would prefer that I just let Mr. Buchanan’s stuff pile up?

  4. Common sense would indicate that the average person needs to be armed and ready to defend himself and his property. Street cops are useless in this regard as they aren’t standing next to a potential victim to protect him. Cops are almost always minutes away when seconds count, so lets not pretend they can protect the citizenry.

    The ‘law’ is the cause of this situation because it prohibits the average person from owning their weapon of choice and threatens the citizenry with criminal prosecution for killing some POS that was intending harm.

    Everyone knows this and everyone pretends this isn’t the primary problem. Get rid of such unconstitutional laws and allow the citizenry to police their own sphere of influence and crime will drop like a rock once the criminal element is killed off over a relatively short period of time.

    There is a dynamic that becomes established when law-abiding people can easily possess guns that works like “herd immunity”. If the criminals know that any home or person they target CAN have a gun, they look for a new way to make a living. I have lived in such communities and, although I don’t feel competent to own a gun, I’m sure I was protected by the knowledge that there were plenty of people around who did.

    Would you kindly explain to me what exactly a ‘crypto-marxist’ is? Has this got something to do with the labour theory of value and crypto currency by any chance? Why is it that having picked up some imagined derogatory word – in this instance ‘marxist’ – and then being ok to use it indiscriminately to identify everyone and everything who you don’t like is both pathetic and frankly illiterate. The idea that Americans in general other than the 0.0001% who do know is a sad reflection on the political literacy of the American public.

    Your (tiresome) point is that voting doesn’t matter, and that we (sane white people who read Unz) should all boycott the voting booth, because according to you, it makes no difference if we have Trump or Hillary or Trump or Kamala or Trump or Stacy Abrams.

    And since Trump is a disappointment, that we (sane white people) should just let the ‘wokeness’ (anti-white, murderous racial hatred on acid) choose our next president, because that will teach those Republicans a lesson once and for all! And next time (there won’t be one ; ) then they’ll deport the illegals and end the Eternal Wars and safeguard the border and so forth. But first we (sane white people) have to teach them all a lesson by not voting, (that’ll teach em!) and handing over all power to the forces of ‘wokeness’.

    Once wokeness has opened the borders, and killed the Second Amendment, and confiscated America’s guns, and sent the federal marshals and FBI to rout out “white supremacist” domestic terrorists, once and for all! Then we’ll have really shown those Republicans a thing or two about who’s really in power here! As Kamala’s DHS and CIA and FBI and local police forces throughout the nation, (and this time with the full-throated and enthusiastic support of the entire (((media))) as her relentless cheerleader and bullhorn for ‘social justice’) clamp down on ‘hate speech’ and other assorted devices of ‘white supremacy’ that threatens us all!

    And all we need to do is nothing. Because that’s the only way we’re going to teach those Republicans who’s boss!

    Buchanan, born in 1938, is hardly a Boomer. That generation began when the WW2 vets returned home. It began in 1946 and ended around 1964. All presidents since Bill Clinton have been Boomers. Pat is a member of what is known as the Silent Generation.

    There’s a lot I share with Pat as a fellow Silent. One mark of Silents is relative caution. Relative to the Boomers that is. I think this is because most of us had parents who were either hit hard by the Great Depression or were at least sobered by it. They conveyed to us, almost without words, the fragility of things, the fragility of hard won security. The shocking thing about Boomers has been their carelessness. In some ways overarching confidence is a good thing, but most Boomers were simply arrogant and in their arrogance plowed forward seemingly without a care while sowing deserts they called peace (or ignored altogether).

    You are, of course, correct in your ‘herd immunity’ theory. That is precisely why the law forbids it.

    Government is good at one thing: It knows how to break your legs, hand you a crutch, and say, “See, if it weren’t for the government, you wouldn’t be able to walk”. – Harry Browne

    The law needs cowering victims so they can come to their rescue, or at least pretend to do so. You aren’t allowed to protect yourself because you’re not licensed by the state.

    Licensing is just another unconstitutional scam because ‘Titles of Nobility’ are expressly forbidden in the Constitution and licensing confers a title of nobility.

    anti-Russia, treaty-shredding Iran hater, anti-China, pro-all-things-Israel, fire-breathing, foaming-at-the-mouth Neocon.

    I doubt Trump has an ideological bone in his body. I suspect he admires Putin, and would like a rapprochement with Russia. He’s always been critical of China’s trade war on the U.S., and I think that was always one of his pet causes. As for Iran and Israel, these are hardboiled exigencies in D.C’s power politics. Jewish supremacist/Zionist$ have controlled our fecal government for over a hundred years, at least. It’s just not something one man could possibly overturn in a matter of four years. And for the neocons, they hated Trump’s guts from day one. No one has been more adamant about removing Donald Trump than the neocon of neocon’s Billy Kristol.

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/04/03/never-trump-bill-kristol-releases-swing-state-ad-slamming-trump-over-coronavirus/

    So I just see Trump as an opportunist, who understands the kind of sewer he’s swimming in.

    If he wins, and then goes to war with Iran, I think he’ll go down as the most hated president in history. Having betrayed the only people who stuck by him, and gave him his second term, as the other half of the nation screeched for his head on a platter.

    And war with China/Russia would be even too stupid for even the neocons.

    So as Anon goes on about ‘the most important election ever’, he’s more astute in his sarcasm than he even realizes.

    It’s Trump and heritage America

    vs.

    ‘wokeness (anti-white hatred)/Zionism on acid/Hillary’s DNC/Clinton foundation/NYT/CNN/MSNBC/AIPAC/BLM/CIA/WA PO/Big Tech/LGBT/Obamas/Macron/Merkel/Trudeau/AOC/Omar/Nadler/Brennan/Schiff/ Comey/Maxine/.. and so on.

    With some overlap between Trump with ‘Zionism on acid’ and AIPAC.

    But the overlap is not ideological, but rather opportunistic.

    On the day of wokeness, when all of those forces are perfect alignment- and wielding Total power, it will be of small consolation to tell ourselves that Pat was right, and Anon was wrong about the importance of voting.

    It’s not hard to understand. “Imagined derogatory word”? I suppose I can dumb it down for you. Let’s say you had ridden the coattails of American industriousness and ingenuity to massive wealth and want to ensure your place atop the pyramid remains unchallenged. The surest way to consolidate power would be to stage a faux redistribution focused on “uplifting the impoverished” by taxing the heck out of white landowners and handing their property to the most irrational, deracinated, impulsive groups of the population. These groups would lap at your piss puddles for shiny trinkets, while actively subverting attempts by the rightful inheritors of your country to reassert their ownership of the land. I’ll put it a little more simply for you:
    “Seize the means of production! From the white people! (((We))) apparatchiks will be much better overlords then those nasty goyim!”

    Voting has produced this mess. How is continuing to vote going to change anything? The figureheads elected control almost nothing and are beholden to the deep state for reelection. It’s in the elected officials own best interests to go with the flow. The very idea that some individual is going to change things by reversing decades of corruption is absurd.

    The entire voting system is rigged by the political party mechanism so that only the pre selected are offered up to the masses to sanctify. Are you really satisfied with this scam to the extent you want to signal your approval of whichever fool gets elected?

    The best thing that could happen is if only a few thousand people showed up to vote and the bulk of the country boycotted this sham. Whatever the outcome of this election, the country is going to explode because the ridiculous idea that 50% have to live under something they don’t want because of some contrived election is plain stupid.

    Exactly so. It’s tough to name all the idiots in this place who think Trump would or could essentially “right the ship” of the United States in four years. And that’s even without the several attempted Uniparty/Deep State coup attempts aided and abetted fully by the JewsMedia.. The entrenched judiciary and intel bureaucracy as well as the other myriad government bureaucracies have been stuffed to the brim with Leftist indoctrinated trash for at least the last 75 years.

    There is no way to preserve the Historic American Nation without a full scale Constitutional Crisis/Armed Conflict. We have learned that over the last six months.

    That is exactly the thesis of “The End of Democracy,” a short book, 161 pages, which I highly recommend. Democracy is a con.

    On the national level, the exception is that Trump the Disrupter, was hardly “pre-selected.” The pre-selected GOP candidate was Jeb Bush, but the rank-and-file would have none of it. Hillary was so confident she would win against a low-life casino hustler, everyone told her she’d be coronated, that she didn’t even campaign in the Rust Belt states she barely lost. But, after Trump, it’s unlikely the Powers-that-Be will allow it to happen again.

    Voting has produced this mess. How is continuing to vote going to change anything?

    voting didn’t produce this mess, Woodrow Wilson did when he handed the keys of our Treasury to the world’s most sinister men. It was treachery that caused this mess, just as it was treachery that assassinated JFK, and treachery that resulted in 9/11. All of those acts, by traitors to this nation (and indeed, our very civilization) are what caused this mess.

    Voting is a benign act when compared to murderous, seditious, willful and malicious treachery.

    Voting won’t change that, but it will and has mollified the effects of their treachery, by repudiating ‘double Gitmo’ Romney for the aspirational peace candidate Obama.

    Americans always vote for peace, and are always betrayed by treachery. But voting at least tells the scumfucks that we don’t want war, and so they’re going to have to keep giving us ‘Pearl Harbor-like events’, that no doubt are inconvenient for them to stage.

    When considering the hawkishness of the war hag, there is no doubt that voting did in fact effect our national (and global) trajectory vis-a-vis Eternal Wars for Israel and the concomitant death of the West (by immigration).

    The hag was all about ‘Assad has to go’, and ‘no fly zones’ in Syria = (hot war with Russia).

    I think you’ve already concurred that Trump is preferable to the hag, so there’s that, (if I’m not mistaken).

    The figureheads elected control almost nothing and are beholden to the deep state for reelection. It’s in the elected officials own best interests to go with the flow. The very idea that some individual is going to change things by reversing decades of corruption is absurd.

    It would be nice to set on the sidelines as an aloof spectator and be morally above participating in a system that is, I freely admit, corrupt and rotten to the core. But if the main sewer pipe for the city has ruptured, and the sewage is hemorrhaging in a tsunami towards my home (and family and property), then I’m obliged to put on my gloves and get to work to stave off the complete inundation of everything I consider precious in this world, from being utterly destroyed. Sure, I may get some shit on me in the process, but what I wonder- did the Kulaks think once the Reds were in Total power?

    Did they wonder if they might have been able to do more, or was the whole thing (genocide) inevitable?

    I think that’s the point of Solzhenitsyn’s warning to us all, ‘and how we burned in the camps’. Because by that time, there was nothing any of them could have done. But before it gets to that point, and before it even gets to a shooting war, there is still, tenuously, just barely, the vote.

    We all know Biden is as corrupt as it gets. That’s he’s a proud member of the (((occupied))) Senate and deepstate. That he’ll serve them slavishly, as will his VP, is a certainty. All we’ve got against that is the uncertainty of Donald Trump.

    I admit that’s not much, but it’s all we’ve got. And the stakes are very, very high indeed. As high as they get, because it could mean the difference between four more years of relative stability vs. an all out war on ‘white supremacy’ and domestic ‘terrorists’, with concurrent wars on Iran and Syria and Lebanon and perhaps Russia to boot. And why not? It’s only stupid goyim doing the fighting and dying, so it’s a win/win all around.

    Voting for Trump is hardly signing my approval. But there are realities that are stark, like the God’s of the Copybook Headings’, which is sort of the point of Buchannan’s article.

    Reality is not what we want it to be, but what it is. And our choices, however stark, are nonetheless choices. We know what’s behind door number two. Racial hatred for whites on steroids and in absolute power. Like Americans have never seen before. Ukrainians have seen it, Germans have known it all too well, as their women and children were burned alive by the hundreds of thousands. Rhodesians have seen it more recently, and the South Africans are seeing it now.

    It is very real, and it is at the bursting point. They hate the white oppressor, the Amalek who torments them for centuries, with a deranged insanity that we simply are not equipped to comprehend. But the Germans comprehend it. The French men and women did when Haiti won its independence.

    When the stakes are that high, and they are indeed that high, then you do what you can. And for now, that’s voting. Once that’s gone, then more stringent methods will come into play.

    The best thing that could happen is if only a few thousand people showed up to vote and the bulk of the country boycotted this sham.

    Sure, if that happened on both sides. But what we’ve just been witness to, really for as long as Trump has been president, is a frenzy of raw hatred unleashed on this nation. Russia!!! Ukraine!!!!

    BLACK LIVE [email protected]&#@*!!!!! YOU FUCKING PRIVLEDGED RACISTS!!!!

    As they burn down their cities and loot and maim.

    Do you think they’re going to stay home on election day?!

    On the day they can finally get rid of the man who’s been driving them over the brink of madness?

    Whatever the outcome of this election, the country is going to explode because the ridiculous idea that 50% have to live under something they don’t want because of some contrived election is plain stupid.

    Then explode it will. But ask yourself.. when it does, would you rather the forces of ‘wokeness’, (anti-white hatred on acid) are at the levers of power at the FBI/CIA/NSA/DEA/ATF/Military/local police and all the rest?

    or Trump and his ‘racist’, irredeemable deplorables?

    Tsar Nicholas was a very flawed man, and a lot of Russians hated him, often with good reason, but when they woke up to Trotsky in charge, it was a horror they could never have imagined.

    Perhaps one of the biggest follies of being a typical American, is not understanding just how tough it was for those Founders to have won their freedom in the first place, and so they have no idea just how awful it is not to have it.

    America is now on the brink of finding out just how ineffably priceless is that freedom, once its gone.

    Well, the one thing we all know, is that if there is going to be any hope for any kind of future, baring a S. Africa kind of racial meltdown, then it will only happen if Trump gets reelected.

    Yes, he could turn out to be a ruse, and we might start bombing Iran on Nov, 4th 2020. But at least there is the tiniest glimmer of hope that he’ll actually have managed to put in place enough security that he’ll be able to save this nation, (and with it Western civilization) from utter and depraved collapse into the abyss.

    We all know how the Democrats rule. We were all just given a ringside seat to their wokeness.

    Now, do we want to see the entire nation ruled by wokeness unleashed. Without the threat by Trump of sending in law enforcement. In fact, all federal marshals will be on the side of wokeness, as they burn and loot and no doubt rape and murder their way to ‘social justice’.

    I wish I was being hyperbolic or exaggerating. But the ((media)) has really done a job of creating a terrifying level of raw race-hate that I’ve (post boomer) never seen before.

    As for “burning in the camps”, count me out. I’ll be long dead before that happens.

    Trotsky was never in charge.

    what’s your point?

    Trotsky (with Woodrow Wilson’s eager assistance) set the whole Bolshevik genocidal horrors in motion. He was a seminal player in the October revolution and consequent enslavement of Russia and half of Europe.

    But when I say ‘Trotsky in charge’, it’s as a metaphor. Like saying that if Jeb had won the presidency, that Sheldon Adelson would be in charge. The posters show Trotsky surveying the death and carnage that his revolution wrought on the white, Christian people of Russia.

    He may have not killed every one of them, but it was his ((and his tribe’s)) doing, none the less.

    Your essay is very well written and you obviously understand the pickle the country is in. I just have to note how absolutely ineffective Trump has been and the awful people he has hired in his administration. As the saying goes, ‘with friends like him, we don’t need any enemies’. From my perspective, the deep state owns him.

    Hillary is still running her mouth off and not in a prison cell.
    Guantanamo is still operating.
    Julian Assange has not only not found any help from Trump, but Trump wants to bury him.
    Military budgets have explode on Trump’s watch.
    He’s abrogated international agreements with Iran and Russia and has antagonized China and even US allies.
    The wars are ongoing.
    China is being demonized daily with Trump’s full approval and enthusiastic support.
    The economy is circling the bowl.
    The lock downs are blatantly illegal but they’re a fact nonetheless.
    The Justice Department has had years to flush out the perpetrators of the coup, but is silent.
    Biden was filmed bragging about his Ukraine escapade but now he’s in the running for the top job instead of in an orange suit along with the bulk of his family and the DNC management.
    Comey, Clapper, etc apparently are untouchable.
    The FBI and CIA are still in operation.
    No one is asking where $23 Trillion disappeared to from the Defense Dept and HUD.
    The 2008/9 meltdown didn’t yield a single significant conviction while Trillions of wealth were transferred to the owners of the country and Trump is silent.
    The Fed is monetizing debts and again handing out Trillions under a Trump administration and Trump is the cheerleader.
    Trump fully supports the forced immunization of the population for a bogus pandemic while Big Pharma has immunity from prosecution for any damage their poison causes.
    Trump now has an area of Israel named after him for his support in handing Jerusalem to the Zionists.
    etc, etc, etc.

    Trump is a useless figurehead. Should he win the selection, he will continue Tweeting and licking Netanyahu’s hemorrhoids.

    The US is Israeli occupied territory and the election won’t change the downward spiral in any significant way. The process of corporations strip mining the US has been going on for decades and will continue till there’s nothing left to steal. Trump might prolong the agony a short while longer than a Biden administration, but that’s not something I consider advantageous.

    I voted once in my life and will never again make that mistake.

    Trump has not started another shooting war. That is true.

    However, he’s done nothing to end existing ones and has created conditions with sanctions that are leading us into other conflicts yet to materialize. Many see these actions as acts of war but the kinetics haven’t started yet.

    Why go after Venezuela? Why keep goading Iran? Why piss off China, Germany, Russia, North Korea and other countries that only creates animosity towards the US and accelerate the demise of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Trump is doing a spectacular job of accelerating the death of the US currency by forcing nations into avoiding the dollar if at all possible.

    Why has he significantly increased military spending? Why are the Chinese preparing for war? Wars are planned and may take years of preparation. I believe that’s where we are now – in the preparatory stage, so I’m not giving him any credit for his foolish actions.

    Both you and Anonymous 245 have solid points but you’re forgetting that Republicans by and large just took a knee during the record months long rioting and cucked by giving Democrats their wish list of destroying or removing confederate icons and renaming bases currently named after confederate generals.

    As far as voting goes we gave the Republicans a trifecta from 2016 through Jan 2019 and they failed to advance one piece of pro-America (pro-white) immigration or social legislation and that’s not by accident. Trump’s DOJ and FBI are persecuting and arresting far more “white supremacists” than Obama & Holder ever did. Tech censorship is worse than ever under Trump

    Protecting the second amendment was about the last reason to vote Republican but more R Senators are supporting national red flag laws and assault weapons bans as well as leftism in general. The only thing keeping them semi-honest is intensive lobbying from the GOA and NRA.

    The fact is that the Democrats deliver for their base far more than the donor and lobbyist owned GOP. We are not better off now than we were four years ago and in fact things are much worse than they’ve ever been even with Republicans still controlling two out of the three branches of government.

    There is no evidence that Lenin was fully Jewish. However a Jewish socialist did nearly assassinate him. A little sidenote you won’t read at Unz. You also won’t read about how it was the Germans that funded Lenin as part of a strategy to encourage a Russian civil war to close the eastern front.

    The idea that the Soviet Union was a Jewish club doesn’t make sense given that Stalin killed some of his Jewish rivals. Being Jewish did not give you any protection.

    I agree with all except that I see no reason why he shouldn’t antagonize China over trade and fuck these so-called US allies. Germany? France? Canada? These ‘allies’ are even more woke than AOC. I’d end NATO with an executive order and tell these allies that they don’t need our help to destroy their countries, they’re doing an amazing job all on their own.

    The wars are ongoing.
    China is being demonized daily with Trump’s full approval and enthusiastic support.

    Trump has been trying to deescalate the wars, but the PTB are formidable.

    I don’t care if he calls China nasty names. They’ve been cleaning our clock economically and with trade imbalances, and he should be tough on them. Everything up to military should be on the table.

    The economy was doing very well under Trump, until the Cornhole. Give the man credit at least where’s it’s due.

    And Trump has been the lone voice of sanity vis-a-vis the Democrat governor’s lock downs.

    You don’t think he’d like to see Comey behind bars? Instead we all have to settle for the creepy porn lawyer. But I’m certain that if it were up to Trump, that heads would fall. But it’s not.

    JFK was assassinated with the assistance of the CIA. 9/11 was perpetrated with the assistance of the CIA. There are some things that simply can’t be resolved by working inside the system, because the system is corrupt to the core. And has been for over a hundred years. All we can hope for is a few bones tossed our way.

    Trump fully supports the forced immunization

    It that turns out to be accurate, then I hope someone does something about that.

    If they try to vaccinate by force, then I’d say the American experiment is over. And it’s time to get the fuck out now, or lock and load.

    The US is Israeli occupied territory and the election won’t change the downward spiral in any significant way. The process of corporations strip mining the US has been going on for decades and will continue till there’s nothing left to steal. Trump might prolong the agony a short while longer than a Biden administration, but that’s not something I consider advantageous.

    Well OK, this is the crux of the matter. What, if anything is there to be gained by “a short while longer”? Or four years, to be more precise.

    I think for all your ‘gloom and doom’, (of which I agree) I suspect that you’re simply not nearly as ‘gloom and doom’ as I am.

    Your points are well taken, and you’re right about how dire the situation is, only you’re too Pollyanna, IMHO.

    Where we diverge, is in the nation’s prospects under a Biden, ‘woke’ administration.

    The Democrat party has changed. They’re now the unapologetically anti-white party. They demonize white men simply for being white men. The statues all must come down. The paintings on walls of George Washington must be painted over. White people are evil and privileged and racist and guilty and too often straight and Christian, which makes them all full of hate. Did I mention that all white people are racists?

    There was a time when saying such thing would be considered silly, but no more. That is the reality that’s smashing us all right in the face. If we had the nads to face reality squarely, and see it for what it is. Wokeness means a hatred for heritage America, and the people who remind them of it. The ((media and academia)) have done their job of fomenting a genocidal rage in this nation against its founding stock. And Biden’s victory will unleash those forces against the white people of this nation like nothing any of us have ever seen. That’s why I invoke Germany and Ukraine and Zimbabwe and South Africa, because it’s coming here, like a freight train, and there’s nothing any of us can do to stop it. All we can hope for is to slow it down a bit, so that we can plan and implement strategies that will at least save our families and others from what looms in the near future. I have said for decades now that what they really want, is for us to become effectively Palestinians. Humiliated, tormented, treated as less than dirt. Murdered for our organs or for fun, when it amuses them. I’ve often posted a video of IDF cowards shooting Palestinian children for sport, and with us, it will be no different. When black mobs rip white people to pieces, they’ll laugh their arses off. When the women are brutally raped, it will be to guffaws and hilarity on late night Talmud-vision.

    Most people have no f’n idea what the Palestinians have endured, but that will soon change. We already have the check-points and IDF-like tactics, with Total surveillance and even a torture camp. White Americans are actually so willfully obtuse, that they don’t think any whites’ will ever be renditioned to Gitmo, but I more or less figured it’s always been for us. We’re their biggest threat. We (white Christians) are the only ones who they fear and loath. And they’ve been doing everything in their power to put in place a final solution. As the West is dying, they’re very near their goal. Only Putin and Eastern Europe stands in their way. But Trump is also a nuisance.

    From your reply to ariadna;

    Why piss off China, Germany, Russia, North Korea and other countries that only creates animosity towards the US and accelerate the demise of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Trump is doing a spectacular job of accelerating the death of the US currency by forcing nations into avoiding the dollar if at all possible.

    If you’d been reading my stuff on Unz for the last few years, you’d know that this is my dream come true!

    I’ve been pining for the death of the Fecal Reserve Note for many, many years now. Openly encouraging Russia and China and India and Brazil and anyone and everyone to repudiate the dollar. Crush it, stomp it, destroy it!

    It is humanity’s only hope that the dollar must die, and die before they’re able to destroy the Western world for all eternity.

    Of course it will cause a lot of strife in the ZUS, but we’ve been on borrowed time and money for since before I was born.

    The best thing that could happen to the planet and the long-beleaguered people on it, is for the dollar to die now. And with it, the Eternal Wars, and Zionism, and the horrors inflicted upon millions of people all over the Middle East and Russia and Ukraine and Venezuela and Gaza and a God knows where else these fiends are festering.

    Let me give you my slant on trying to end the US shitshow as quickly as possible, and if that means a Biden victory, great.

    The longer things drag out, the more homeless people will be created and the more people will be without jobs. These will be hard working people made victims by circumstance, not dopers and mental cases. It takes resources to survive and possibly fight for your rights. The longer the current environment is allowed to continue, the fewer and fewer people will have the wherewithal to oppose UBI, rampant currency printing, and the more people will be looking for gov’t to support them. They will become dependent on gov’t largess and which party has the reputation for advancing the cause of ‘free stuff”?

    The longer this drags out, the more Dem voters will be created because they will have no other choice but to vote for their immediate survival. You can see where that leads.

    The country is heading for a colossal meltdown. Get it over with as soon as possible to start a rebuilding process while there are still enough resources left to attempt to pull that off. Keep dragging things out looking for some savior via the ballot box has never worked and never will work.

    I’m totally with you on crashing the phony dollar. I want an end to the Fed Gov and the only way that can happen is if the dollar goes to toilet paper. 50 new countries with 50 new experiments on how to govern. Let the experiment begin as soon as possible to avoid as many unnecessary casualties that waiting and hoping will bring.

    Full disclosure – I’ve been an expat for 16 years. I’ve only been back once in all that time. I saw the handwriting on the wall right after 911 but it took me a few years to get things organized. I knew the US was going to turn into a police state (Patriot Act, NDAA, etc) and the economy was going to turn to shit for the average guy. I placed my bet a long time ago and I voted with my feet.

    If you are going to blame the Soviet Union on Jews then at least get your facts right.

    I know, right?

    People try to blame the Bolshevik menace and America’s involvement in both world wars on ‘the Jews’. They blame the Jews for the plight of the Palestinians, and for bombing the King David Hotel, and for Deir Yassin and other crimes that Jews had nothing to do with.

    Just like Hitler looking for a scape goat for all his failures, people blame the Federal Reserve Bank, and how it’s debased the dollar to a penny or two of its original value, on supremacist Jews (Rothschild, et al), who print paper and then loan it to the government at interest, when the Constitution demands that congress print our currency. But these anti-Semites will never stop trying to blame ‘the Jews’ for all that.

    They’re just jealous, really. I think that’s obvious. I mean sure, the Zionists needed a new ‘Pearl Harbor-like event in order to get Americans to destroy seven nations in five years, but look how many Gentiles were involved with that! Is George Bush a Jew? Is Dick Cheney a Jew?

    But these people always need to blame a convenient scape goat, and there’s Israel, all alone in a sea of Muslims who want to push her into the sea. And so she tries to defend herself, and then right on cue, all the Nazis and anti-Semites all start shouting about ‘Operation Cast Lead’, and other benign ways Israel tries to defend herself, but to anti-Semites, the Jews are just supposed to march into the cattle cars, and say ‘may I please take a shower, Sir?

    That’s what they want the Jews to do. But I hope they’ll forgive the Jews if they’d prefer to pass on it this time.

    The Jews are always blamed for things they never did. America’s involvement in WWI, the Biblical treachery of the Federal Reserve Bank, WWII, Bolshevism, Hollywood cultural sewage, laws against prayer in schools, or singing Christmas carols, or Nativity scenes in the town square. USS Liberty. Arab Oil Embargo. Cultural Marxism. Political correctness. Massive Third World immigration that is slated to genocide whites off the planet, and so many other things that Jews had no part in!

    It’s all a blood libel. Jews had nothing to do with any of that. Jews had nothing to do with Zionism, which was imposed by Christian Zionists. Jews are just their patsies protecting Muslim oil for the Christians. Jews had nothing to do with Bolshevism, which was all Lenin and Stalin, and the Jews were mercilessly persecuted, as always, by Gentile anti-Semites.

    When will the world ever own up to its guilt vis-a-vis the world’s Jews, is what I’d like to know.

    From Leo Frank, to Eli Weisel, to Larry Silverstein, the goyim insist on persecuting innocent Jews.

    Would Maxine or Nadler or Pelosi (or Schiff or Clinton or Comey…) want to see someone like me in a ‘white men only concentration camp?

    I remember watching Comey being interviewed, and he said he knew Trump was unfit to be president because he said there were problems with both sides at Charlottesville. IOW, for America’s head of the FBI, white men legally and peacefully protesting the removal of statues to their local heritage, were so far beyond the pale of acceptability, that we should all cheer for the thugs who violently attacked them for peacefully protesting.

    Do I think someone like Comey would abuse the awesome power of his position to subvert the law in order to imprison someone he simply doesn’t like? (Gen. Flynn perhaps?)

    And if he’d send Gen. Flynn to prison, how much less likely would he be to send me to a camp?

    If John Brennan would preside over the torture of innocent men, then should I think he’d never, ever do anything to imperil my Constitutional rights! I mean I’m an American citizen!, after all. (Like the one Obama assassinated by drone).

    I often agree with several of your points. Just as I often disagree with many of Buchannan’s.

    Where we diverge is on the advisability of voting, when the stakes are as high as they are.

    Trump is a disappointment, and the Republicans are scum. But that doesn’t happen in a vacuum. That happens because Jewish supremacists- who want white people genocided and blended and barring that, marginalized into a disenfranchised and powerless group who can ‘Never again!’ threaten their Total dominance- have been (in spite of what John Johnson tells us) running the show in DC for a hundred years or more, and that’s not going to change until the Fed is dead.

    And if this election were between Jeb and Joe, or Kamala or Mitt, then I’d agree, and say voting would be a waste of time.

    But Trump is different. I won’t do the litany of things he’s done, good and bad, but I’ll just say he’s different from Mitt or Marco or Jeb in very, very significant ways, that show some infinitesimally.. just barely enough to glimmer from a great distance… hope.

    And as long as there’s that, voting could, just possibly make a difference. Especially when we know the wokeness will be coming out in throngs of BLM and Hollywood smug, and Jewish supremacist media, and all the other forces of rat shit that terrifies me when I think of my young relatives.

    Not good at all but the “conservative” SCOTUS refused to hear ten second amendment cases this term that would have expanded and strengthened 2A rights. Not to mention that Gorsuch and Roberts rewrote the civil rights act to include sexual orientation and transgenderism.

    We keep voting for rightism but keep getting centrism and leftism.

    Pat Buchanan is not a timid boomer, hesitant to criticize “the swarthy”. He has been reviled for anti-Semitism in the past, although by innuendo not substance. I don’t even know if Buchanan is a boomer. He might be too old for that! He comes a lot closer to hitting the mark here than his contemporaries.

    Buchanan was feared as a dangerous nationalist for decades, before I was old enough to vote. That wasn’t engineered by “swarthy” greed.

    Neoliberals and globalists of all races, creeds, and colors enthusiastically sold the future prosperity of America’s ethnic majority to foreigners. They could have “just said no” to excess profiteering given that the USA has essentially been the land of milk and honey to all comers who are willing to work hard. They didn’t. They could have ignored the Cato Institute, intelligentsia looking for a handout, and false prophets of David Ricardo. They didn’t. They enthusiastically signed on and set an anti-nationalist culturally mainstream example for all who followed.

    War with Iran is unlikely, though it’s true that the ruling class would love it. President Harris might do it, to please her masters and show off her nads.

    As to your other point, yeah the perfect is the enemy of the good.

    Let me give you my slant on trying to end the US shitshow as quickly as possible, and if that means a Biden victory, great.

    Full disclosure – I’ve been an expat for 16 years.

    Now I recall we’ve been down this road before.

    I’m in the boat, and so are throngs of my extended family. So you’ll pardon me if I’m not as enthusiastic as you are to see it sink.

    Not that I don’t blame people for wanting to see the ZUS at the bottom of the sea, especially people in Iran and so many other nations being destroyed and or menaced by the zio-fiend.

    But there are still scores of millions of good people in this nation (of all races and creeds) who don’t deserve the looming dystopia that’s coming. Yes, you were smarter than most by getting out, but for a lot of us, we have obligations to loved ones that make that difficult to impossible to do.

    So now what? Urge the Orwellian nightmare to come sooner rather than later?

    dollar goes to toilet paper. 50 new countries with 50 new experiments on how to govern. Let the experiment begin as soon as possible to avoid as many unnecessary casualties that waiting and hoping will bring.

    If your utopian fantasy of 50 new countries with 50 ways of governing were but the thread of a possibility, then I’d be its biggest proponent. That would be a dream come true, and a heaven on earth for most productive Americans. Abolish the fecal government and create 50 new sovereign nations so we could all vote with our feet.

    But we both know (((they))) would never allow that to happen.

    They’d nuke this continent into glass before they’d allow the people to be free. They’d foment wars with Russia and China and everyone else, in a psychotic Sampson Option type of temper tantrum before they’d relinquish total power over the ZUSA.

    America is their prize of all prizes. Israel is just an outpost of their main base, the ZUS.

    Before they’d just hand it all over to ‘the people’ (hated goyim), they’d kill every last one of us, and I’m not being hyperbolic. Look at the face of Alan Dershowitz currently on the cover of TUR. And ask yourself if he’d be OK with America breaking up into 50 free states of free people, governing themselves in whatever manner suits them?

    Sheldon Adelson recently advocated dropping a nuke in a desert to show Iran what’s coming if they refuse to submit to Zion. If you ask me in all sincerity, would Sheldon be willing to see Utah nuked into green glass, to demonstrate just what Zion is willing to do to keep its demonic fangs locked on America’s jugular vein, I’d answer 100% in the affirmative. Sheldon and Haim and Dirshowitz and Feinstein and Bibi and every last J-supremacist on the planet, would NEVER allow America to break up into free states. That would be their horror of horrors. Free white Americans deciding their own fate, and destiny?!

    Oh fuck no dude.

    That is not ever going to be in the cards. Any more than Zion ending its eternal occupation of Germany (in particular and Europe in general). Yes, it’s not just the ((Fed)), but Rothschild’s other hand- the ((ECB)) that also has its fangs in Europe’s neck. For the people of the planet to be free, will require a repudiation of both the Fed and the ECB. Gadhafi tried to free his people and continent from their demonic claws,

    and we all know where that got him. But he was a great man and heroic martyr to humankind for trying.

    The longer this drags out, the more Dem voters will be created because they will have no other choice but to vote for their immediate survival. You can see where that leads.

    The country is heading for a colossal meltdown.

    No argument here, but again, whom do we want in charge when the curtain goes up, and Zappa’s prescient warning to Americans comes true, and we all see the brick wall at the back of the theater.

    Do we want ‘wokeness’ (CNN/BLM/AOC/Hillary) in charge on that day?

    or Trump?

    With any luck, Trump is reigning over the long overdue death of the dollar.

    With its death, the ZUS will no longer be able to corrupt every government and society on earth (currently working hard on Belarus at the moment), and destroy every culture and sovereign inch of dirt on this rock.

    But all of that is going to take time, and in the mean time, we have to decide if we want the ZUS to be handed back to the deepstate/Biden/Kamala/Brennan/Bush/Clinton/Cuckservative Inc./Neocons/CNN/NYT/Big Tech/Obama/Assad has to go/Putin = Hitler/FBI/CIA and all the rest…

    Or Trump, who’s hated by the deepstate/CNN/Hillary/Mitt/Dubya – like no other.

    When I pull that lever on Nov. 3rd, I’m going to be pissing off BLM/Schiff/wokeness/mandatory masks/Hillary/Obama (I could go on and on and on ; ) Billy Kristol.. Alexander Vindman.. Hunter Biden.. radical LGBT/the View..

    and so many other shitbags that I can’t even count.

    And you’d want to deny me the joy of driving all of those pieces of shit out of their minds, by reelecting Donald J. Trump (unapologetic, pro-Confederate heritage, woman-loving, pro-family, anti-woke, anti-climate change idiocy, drives Maxine insane with black rage) to a second term as president, and sticking my white American male .. finger in Obama’s black supremacist eye?

    Ohh no, no no.

    We’re not given much these day in the way of sticking it to the forces of wokeness (hatred of white male Gentiles on acid), but when we do have a moment to return the favor, asking us to refrain, is asking too much.

    But the Mississippi Republicans just stabbed their voters in the back and broke that promise ..

    the question is, will those Republicans be tossed out on their arses come reelection time?

    Or will the Republican voters of Mississippi reelect the scum who betrayed them?

    is there any guarantee it won’t worsen anyway in Trump’s second term?

    We don’t know. We don’t know if Trump has been a ruse all along. And if on his reelection, he opens the borders and gives amnesty to all 20+ million and appoints anti-Second Amendment rats to the court and tries to grab the guns. We simply don’t know.

    But there’s little reason for believing he was a complete ruse, even if it’s remotely possible.

    What’s more probable is that on reelection, some heads are likely to fall. Comey, and Brennan and many, many others. Those who used their power and position to subvert our republic and the institution of the president of the United States, out of their own personal butt-hurt.

    He could be coming for them, and that’s something I’d love to see.

    But what he’d do with a second term, is anybody’s guess.

    Not good at all but the “conservative” SCOTUS refused to hear ten second amendment cases..

    Yes, but that’s the “conservative” SC. As you point out. But we all know what the liberal (woke) SC will do with the Second.

    That is a certainty.

    Assuming Trump wins, what makes you think the next 4 years will be any different than his first term? Are the Dems going to make nice? Will the Federal Reserve stop giving free trillions to the 1%? Will the world suddenly welcome US sanctions?

    When that second term ends, the country will be deep into a depression and Trump will get blamed with the Dems taking over. More people unemployed, more homeless, fewer and fewer resources to call upon as the dollar sinks. You bought 4 years with more economic casualties and the world not sympathetic to US internal problems. Perfect time to start a war as a distraction, a real war.

    If Trump had made good on many of his promises, I would think differently of him as president. The man has been an MIA president with Pompeo recently running foreign policy, Fauci as Gruppenführer of the open air prison that the US has turned into and Trump issuing unconstitutional executive orders or tweeting. The man is useless. His Justice Dept is toothless. I keep waiting for Durham to do something but he’s just another political operative waiting to spring some October surprise that won’t amount to a hill of beans. Is anyone going to arrest Biden and his cocaine son? Is Hillary going to strut down the runway in the latest in orange jumpsuit fashion? What happened to MAGA? Are budgets magically going to balance? Are the illegals going to stop invading to help the Dems? Where is the rainbow?

    The deep state is in charge and Trump jumps to their tune.

    Admittedly, the Dems would be marginally worse, but either way, the election will unleash the black swan with a distinct possibility of shooting confrontations all over the country between decent people and the likes of BLM & Antifa as they ratchet up their attacks. Martial Law with troops in the streets is possible.

    Vote, don’t vote, it doesn’t matter.

    You bought 4 years

    Four years is a long time.

    Long enough to get out. You travel, where would you advise Americans to find refuge?

    I think South America is the best bet, but that’s because I speak some Spanish, and don’t like cold weather. Or I’d head for Eastern Europe somewhere.

    The deep state is in charge and Trump jumps to their tune.

    To a degree, yes. But I think he bristles at it.

    I think he tried (and is trying) to extricate America from Afghanistan and Syria. He recently proposed a 12,000 troop draw-down in Germany, to the howls of the deepstate rats from every crevice.

    The man is useless. His Justice Dept is toothless.

    In your heart of hearts, do you think Donald Trump likes being impotent to punish the treasonous rats who tried to destroy his presidency and his life?

    Do you think he likes having federal judges illegally strike down his executive orders?

    Do you think he likes it that his own party are corrupt scum who’ve sold out to the enemy?

    Do you think he liked having John Bolton strutting around in his White House arrogantly demanding more hostility towards Iran?

    Do you think he likes having Bibi and Sheldon looking over his shoulder at every decision or even word he says?

    Or the ((media)) 20/7 denigrating him with their every smug snarky hiss at his presidency and his charactor?

    I wonder personally, what he’d do if his hands were untied. Few people on this planet have suffered the unilateral, non-stop, seething malice and malevolence directed straight at Donald Trump from the entire length and breath of America’s (and beyond) ((media)) and deepstate apparatchiks like Mitt and Dubya.

    The hatred is palatable, and you can cut it with a knife, it’s so pervasive and suffocating.

    God oh God do they hate Donald Trump!

    Fuck, do they hate, hate, HATE!!!! him.

    His own military officers betray him over a non-quid pro quo with Ukraine, even as we all know what Biden bragged about on video.

    Tell me that doesn’t effect that man in some ways. To see the entire media and courts and politicians all lining up to demand his impeachment for a non-quid pro quo, while everyone knows and knew what Biden had bragged about doing.

    That is some heavy duty double standard shit there, my friend. In your face, mockery of the truth, and every single person was in on it. Journalists and State Dept. officials that work at the pleasure of Donald Trump, were all shitting on the man in the most dishonest and disrespectful way, knowing his opponent had done a thousand times worse.

    And that’s not supposed to have any effect on this man?

    In a way, I wonder if he isn’t the perfect man to be in the White House, knowing what they’ve put him through.

    I think he decided to run for president because of the way Obama humiliated him at a gala dinner, where Obama singled him out for mockery. I think that was the moment Trump decided to run. And if I’m right, then there is something of a righteous vengeance that motivates the man.

    And if so, then who better to set things right in the next four years?

    Who better to take on the deepstate and media and treasonous politicians from both isles.

    Than the very man who’s been mocked and humiliated and denigrated and demonized and scourged like few people have ever been scourged.

    Perhaps he’s been in on it from day one, and he’s just playing along with the corrupt crowd, being one of them and just as corrupt the whole time. IDK. Maybe. But I doubt it.

    It’s really not up to you when some foreign nation decides to not provide you with a visa and to fix the rules so that you can’t become a resident, much less a citizen. It’s late in that game. If you have a few hundred thousand or more, maybe you can buy your way in somewhere because numerous nations sell their citizenship or residencies. All nations are criminal enterprises, so don’t be surprised by the bribe they want to extract in the form of fees, regulatory compliance, bank deposits, etc.

    I watched a few of this guy’s videos, and I think he’s a snake, but he’ll at least tell you want you’re up against.

    Long story short, unless you’re well off and willing to spend some serious cash these days, it’s going to be difficult unless you can claim some rights via ancestry, and even that isn’t cheap.

    There’s an old saying – It is easier to beg forgiveness than to ask permission.

    Trump has no balls. If he’s afraid of being JFK’d, then he should get on national TV and say so. He’d have a thousand well armed good old boys surrounding him by the following morning. If he has criminal activity to hide, which I suspect, then he’s just a POS.

    He should get on national TV and in one sentence tell the Joint Chief morons that they need to get the hell out of all foreign entanglements and do it now and there’s no debating it because it’s a direct order from the Commander In Chief. He should use New York street language to drive the point home and the country would reelect him for just having a pair. But, no, he lets others run all over him – the supposed most powerful man in the world. What bullshit.

    I don’t care what Trump likes. All I know is he’s ineffective and not using the power of his office or of the ‘bully pulpit’ to get the common people to back him. Who reads his tweets besides the lame stream media and possibly his groupies? I don’t have a single social media account because I know it’s all bullshit propaganda. The bulk of the country doesn’t hear him at all. They know Trump second hand via the controlled opposition media. Day one of his administration he should have set up a web site to allow average people to have a conversation with him. Instead, he insulated himself with all sorts of neocon and murderous military advisers while taking bribes from Sheldon and getting his marching orders from Netanyahu. He lets Twitter tell him how the cow ate the cabbage. I’m surprised he’s not a soprano.

    By being ‘Presidential’ he’s also being a pushover. If it were me, I’d get in front of Congress and point blank tell Pelosi to go fuck herself and tell Schumer he’s an asshole. When getting pounded, you need to fight back. Can you honestly say that Trump has helped himself by being a pussy?

    Sorry, but Trump is as weak as water.

    Thanks for the video. I’ll check it out.

    I think some places are pretty easy. Panama or Costa Rica, for instance, if you’re willing to jump though some minor hoops. I hear Uruguay allows residency for a few hundred k investment.

    There are ways, I suppose, if like you say, with a bit of resources.

    If he has criminal activity to hide, which I suspect, then he’s just a POS.

    He could very well be a POS. In some ways, I’m sure he is. But it was never about him. It’s always been about us. And our disgust with the Eternal Wars and open borders and racial hatreds. We’re tired of it all, and want someone, anyone who’ll stop doing all in their power to destroy the middle and working classes of this nation. And stop bombing innocent countries in our name. And stop supporting everything the shitty little state does.

    Of course Trump hasn’t done any of that, but many of us don’t think he runs things in DC. They do. And they own the media, so every politician that depends on favorable media coverage, and those famous purse strings, all dance to their tune.

    It has never been about Trump. It’s always been the alternative to Trump, which has always been more wars, and more immigration, from Jeb and Mitt to Hillary and now Biden, that’s the stark reality of it all.

    We’re voting against Biden and wokeness, not for Trump.

    We’re just gasping for four more years of limited sanity, before the demographics really kick in, and we’re in full blown Zimbabwe/South Africa mode, with open borders and wars for Zion writ large all across the beleaguered planet.

    Maybe if we’re really lucky, then some states will tell the fecal government to fuck off’ when they kill the 2nd Amendment. And send in federal marshals to confiscate the guns. South Dakota and a few other states may light the spark, and I can imagine hundreds of thousands, or millions of patriotic Americans making the trek to the nascent free states of New America. With some patriotic generals taking charge of the missile silos and bunkers intended for the elites on that precipitous day. Like under the Denver airport. We could claim Colorado too, and great waves of migrants would come and go, depending on if they want to pledge allegiance to New America, with the new flag

    And a new covenant.

    ‘Let us live free or you will die’

    If you already have your eye on certain locations, do Internet searches for the expats that are already there. Most places have forums where expats get together to help each other out with legal and other issues.

    Forums will be your most reliable source of information on actual experiences getting into the country and what their lives are like after living there for a while. By joining the forum, you get to ask specific questions and get specific answers.

    I’ll never get why Americans call Latin Americans Hispanics. Are Brazilians Hispanics too? In French they are ‘Latino-Américains’. But then, Americans call whites ‘Caucasian’. That said the capital on Hispanic makes sense just as it does on Caucasian. Capitalising black or white is non-sense and those who do it are the true racists.

    Not a boomer and don’t go to church. In fact I am very critical of boomers and you can see that in my history. I also don’t support aid to Israel.

    But I guess all you have left is name calling when you realize your Unz Soviet Studies certificate is just a tad exaggerated when it comes to Jews.

    Don’t get upset with me for pointing out your distorted view of history.

    Libertarians actually have more Jews at the top than Communists. Weirdly enough that doesn’t come up here.

    The more amusing thing is that for certain crimes Hispanics are suddenly White.

    The fed and state govs will do this to reduce the White/Black crime gap.

    Of course no one is allowed to point this out.

    Hispanics are not counted as Whites when it comes to poverty.
