The massive psyops is ongoing. Everyone familiar with the Transition Integrity Project (TIP) knew how this would imperatively play out. I chose to frame it as a think tank gaming exercise in my Banana Follies column. This is a live exercise. Yet no one knows exactly how it will end.

US intel is very much aware of well-documented instances of election fraud. Among them: NSA software that infiltrates any network, as previously detailed by Edward Snowden, and capable of altering vote counts; the Hammer supercomputer and its Scorecard app that hacks computers at the transfer points of state election computer systems and outside third party election data vaults; the Dominion software system, known to have serious security issues since 2000, but still used in 30 states, including every swing state; those by now famous vertical jumps to Biden in both Michigan and Wisconsin at 4am on November 4 (AFP unconvincingly tried to debunk Wisconsin and didn’t even try with Michigan); multiple instances of Dead Men Do Vote.

The key actor is the Deep State, which decides what happens next. They have weighed the pros and cons of placing as candidate a senile, stage 2 dementia, neocon warmonger and possible extorsionist (along with son) as “leader of the free world”, campaigning from a basement, incapable of filling a parking lot in his rallies, and seconded by someone with so little support in the Dem primaries that she was the first to drop out.

The optics, especially seen from vast swathes of the imperial-interfered Global South, may be somewhat terrible. Dodgy elections are a prerogative of Bolivia and Belarus. Yet only the Empire is able to legitimize a dodgy election – especially in its own backyard.

Welcome to the New Resistance

The GOP is in a very comfortable position. They hold the Senate and may end up picking up as may as 12 seats in the House. They also know that any attempt by Biden-Harris to legislate via Executive Orders will have…consequences.

The Fox News/ New York Post angle is particularly enticing. Why are they suddenly supporting Biden? Way beyond internal family squabbles worthy of the Succession saga, Rupert Murdoch made it very clear, via the laptop from hell caper, that he has all sorts of kompromat on the Biden family. So they will do whatever he wants. Murdoch does not need Trump anymore.

Nor, in theory, does the GOP. Former CIA insiders assure of serious backroom shenanigans going on between GOP honchos and the Biden-Harris gang. Trade-offs bypassing Trump – which most of the GOP hates with a vengeance. The most important man in Washington will be in fact GOP Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell.

Still, to clear any lingering doubts, a vote recount would be absolutely necessary in all 6 contested states – WI, MI, PA, GA, NV and AZ. Through hand counting. One by one. The DoJ would need to act on it, immediately. Not gonna happen. Recounts cost a ton of money. There’s no evidence Team Trump – on top of it short of funds and manpower – will be able to convince Daddy Bush asset William Barr to go for it.

While relentlessly demonizing Trump for spreading “a torrent of misinformation” and “trying to undermine the legitimacy of the US election”, mainstream media and Big Tech have declared a winner – a classic case of pre-programming the sheep multitudes.

Yet what really matters is the letter of the law. State legislatures decide whose electors go to the Electoral College to appoint the President.

Here it is – Article II, Section 1, Clause 2: Each state shall appoint electors “in such Manner as the Legislature Thereof May Direct.”

So this has nothing to do with governors, not to mention the media. It’s up to GOP state legislatures to act accordingly. The drama may roll out for weeks. The first step of the Electoral College procedure takes place on December 14. The final determination will only happen in early January.

Meanwhile, talk of a New Resistance is spreading like wildfire.

Trumpism, with 71 million + votes, is firmly established as a mass movement. No one in the GOP commands this kind of popular appeal. By sidelining Trumpism, the GOP may be committing seppuku.

So what will Deplorables do?

The always indispensable Alastair Crooke hits the nail on the head in a powerful essay: Trump is the President of Red America. And depending on how the scripted (s)election tragicomedy develops next, the Deplorables are bound to become The Ungovernables.

Crooke references a crucial parallel evoked by historian Mike Vlahos, who shows how the current American saga mirrors Ancient Rome in the last century of the Republic, pitting the Roman elite against the Populares – which today are represented by Red (Trumpist) America:

“This was a new world, in which the great landowners, with their latifundia [the slave-land source of wealth], who had been the ‘Big Men’ leading the various factions in the civil wars, became the senatorial archons that dominated Roman life for the next five centuries — while the People, the Populares, were ground into a passive — not helpless — but generally dependent and non-participating element of Roman governance: This sapped away at the creative life of Rome, and eventually led to its coming apart.”

So as much as the Dem machine had wanted it, Trump is not yet Imperator Caesar Augustus, whom the Greeks called Autokrator (autocrat), but was a de facto monarch. The American Augustus, Tiberius and most of all Caligula is still further on down the road. He will definitely be a benign, humanitarian imperialist.

In the meantime, what will imperial Big Capital do?

The West, and especially the American Rome, is on the edge of a double precipice: the worst economic depression ever, coupled with imminent, myriad, uncontrollable explosions of social rage.

ORDER IT NOW

So the Deep State is reasoning that with Biden – or, sooner rather than later, Supreme shakti and Commander-in-Chief Maa Durga Kamala – the path gets smoother towards the Davos Great Reset. After all, to reset the chess pieces, first the chessboard must be knocked over. This will be one step beyond Dark Winter – which not accidentally was evoked by teleprompter-reading Biden himself on the final presidential debate. The script gets ominously closer to the Rockefelller Foundation’s 2010 Lock Step.

Meanwhile, Plan B is kept in ready, steady, go mode: the lineaments of a global rampage, focused on “malign” Russia’s sphere of influence to satisfy a “revived” NATO and the military-industrial complex, which selected the now media-appointed President-Elect in the first place because he’s no more than a pliant cardboard figure.

  1. Wait for Trump to work the recount and legal angles and then to finally concede the election.

    The deep state will inform him that if he goes quietly, they’ll not come after him or his family. He can retire with a pile of cash and be out of the spotlight.

    He put the snakes in charge of what’s going to happen to him.

    There’s one very significant actor you left out – the world. The US UPR was today, ignored amid all the foreordained electoral crap, and the UPR showed us the remnants of US standing in the world. You can watch the US government pissing the last drips of legitimacy down its leg.

    The USG doesn’t give a shit what the US population thinks, but they’re exquisitely sensitive to the disgust of the outside world. Universal Periodic Review Highlights:

    – Pakistan feed got cut off, go figure
    – Amazingly servile blowjob by Israel

    – Drumbeat of recommendations on:
    – death penalty and police violence, torture, and impunity
    – independent NHRI per the Paris Principles, like grown-up countries
    – Stop the unnumbered E.O. tantrums against the ICC
    – Stop being a baby and rejoin the Human Rights Council
    – Ratify the rest of the core conventions*

    * with multiple specific mentions of the ICESCR, the one would curb government economic predation and parasitism on your standard of living

    They went there:

    – Russia and Iran sped-up videos to adequately cover major US human rights failures

    – Liechtenstein, hey how about comply with the UNSC code of conduct to at least quit enabling war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide?

    – Paraguay, how about SDG 16, a modicum of institutional integrity, the least you could ask…

    – Peru complains about, not to mention any names, out-of-control CIA gunrunning

    – Senegal says, why not sign the Convention Against Forced Disappearance?

    On the road to “Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump”. Red or Blue either way you are not immune from the end that’s been planned for years now. “The first casualty of war is the truth” it’s been said and now that we have seen the proof of that here comes the end. Where America and Americans are the next casualty followed closely by the rest of the world.

  8. Wokeism, contrary to the opinion of many opiners who just opine out of their heads without a shred of actual evidence, will not suddenly die now that it’s ostensible goal, Biden, is accomplished.

    How I can tell: The cable channels are going full-bore ahead with more and more woke programming. One cannot only tell from what’s on now, but from the ads for upcoming shows.

  9. Pepe writes: “Murdoch does not need Trump anymore.”

    Apparently, since the Murdoch clan has gone Woke, they must think they don’t need viewers either. Witness their calling Arizona for Biden, before even the more liberal networks did.

    Given Fox’s about face and support of Biden, how much longer will it be before Tucker Carlson gets his walking papers?

    Oh well, Tucker doesn’t need Fox either. He has millions of loyal listeners who will follow him whatever he decides to do. Podcaster Joe Rogan has a multimillion dollar contract with Spotify. Tucker might do even better.

    When all else fails, there is always OAN and Newsmax, ready to take up the conservative mantle that Fox relinquished.

  10. Pepe Escobar: “… the Deep State is reasoning that with Biden – or, sooner rather than later, Supreme shakti and Commander-in-Chief Maa Durga Kamala …”

    Although I’m not sure what Escobar means by a “rolling” civil war, I don’t see any kind of civil war as a realistic prospect. It might happen, but only if, say, a President Harris decides to do something outrageous and rash, like liquidating the kulaks (i.e., white people) and redistributing their wealth. Large-scale executions could trigger resistance once word got out, but then again, people might just put up with it and conform, just as they did when Stalin liquidated his kulaks.

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
    – Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn , The Gulag Archipelago

    The power of the state has increased quite a bit since the 1930s, totalitarianism being, as it is, an inherent property of technological societies. It’s easier than ever to suppress organized resistance, and all the “Progress” since then has made people more passive, conformist, and socially isolated than they used to be even just a century ago. More likely is a slower approach, with gun buybacks and partial bans, mandatory vaccinations, and so forth, which will generate only sporadic, ineffectual resistance. Maybe a mass shooting spree or two by an outraged Trump supporter, which will be universally condemned by both left and right; by the left because they want to reserve violence only for their own use, and by the right because they want to keep their web sites online and to be seen as “respectable”.

  11. Franz says:

    The coming reset-depression will decide the Big Question this article raises:

    How can a broke nation that can neither employ its own people or hold its own borders even HAVE a military-industrial complex, much less an empire?

    At what point did the US offshore everthing that constitutes nationhood?

    Worse, we can now prove that at least 70 million voters said no to all that.

    So we are not united and not a country. This raises serious concerns about the empire.

    Nah, it’s insulated itself from that because it’s decentralized and financed by a complex web of black budgets, international finance, contracts and consultants, DoD Office of Net Assessment (which paid Stefan Halper’s $250k to work as a consultant/spy for CIA/FBI), etc.

    While Deep State itself is an shadowy, amorphous entity that extends to European capitals and far-flung vassal-state outposts, it is largely confined to the NE Acela corridor and highly concentrated in the DMV (D.C., Maryland, Virginia), specifically, NW D.C., Bethesda/Chevy Chase, and Northern Virginia (Alexandria, Arlington, McLean, Fairfax County).

    While I agree the Deep State is a decentralized amorphous entity they can be defeated. There are only 607 billionaires in the US. They depend on us deplorables to keep themselves alive. We know who they are and can track their whereabouts. Their very existence depends on the little people

    The institutions that are anti American are the CIA, FBI, NSA the Justice department and most of the federal government…none of these are self sufficient, and can be taken down.

    The achilles heel of the Deep State, their minions, their tools or their shock troops is that they are incapable of sustaining themselves. Most of us lowlife, deplorables are able to take care of ourselves.

    No, my friend, you got it wrong. I’m not bitter, not any more for quite a while. Here in Serbia we are, kind of, at the same place we were in 1981, save that we do not have socialism, but capitalism. Everything else is more or less the same.

    What I’m trying to say is that Americans, Europeans, just anybody had our example in front of their eyes since 1990, each and every policy enforcing experiment, from media blockout of real info, blatantly illegal bombing in 1999, perverse Hague tribunal to cover it all giving illusion of justice through procedure, to the final cut in 2008. Than US and clients simply declared Kosovo as independent state, after that and because of that brought down centrist national-liberal party that had its ideological roots in T. Jefferson from the government, kept mum when our media turned leftist, that time president started to crate predisedentura, created and groomed party of this president that we have today, who rules without any regard for constitutional order, with no opposition in parliament, with tremendous media power (internet media are not so powerful here) and he is supported by collective West because he leads Serbia towards EU/NATO integration no matter what. Yap, we have democracy, but we had sort of in 1981. We had elections all right, but … they have them in North Corea too, don’t they?

    So you had it all in front of your eyes, even V. Putin had said that 180 turn in Russian politics had been sparked by bombing in 1999, and you were sitting idle, not trying to understand how corruptive this “democracy” that US has to swallow these days really is. They have turned 20. century history of Balkans upside down for their aims, you were silent. They have turned 20. century history of Europe upside down, you were silent. So what’s wonder that they are turning US history upside down, violently?

    Finally, if you need an advice, there it is: destroy any and all NGO-s, by law. Because they are so called “civil society” and their job is to work on “participative democracy”. They are organized extra institutional power consisting mostly of semi-educated college self-righteous folks: they know no better, but they need that buck as much as feeling of importance, so they are ready to do just anything “for the cause” that they usually, and purposefully, do not understand. (read this, won’t take too much time: https://pages.uoregon.edu/kimball/Nqv.catechism.thm.htm) Small part of their common action for common cause you observed in many cities. That instrument has been fine tuned for decades here, now it was turned on you. In USA you have institution of townhall meeting. Use it again, as founders did. Twitter, Facebook, Google and media can do nothing about it.

    And you’re right: people who did all of that to us are more or less the same people doing that to you these days. Maybe you can turn the process around, I don’t know,

    So, good luck.

    I found it ironic that “the dictator” Milosevic only claimed that a run off vote was needed, not that he had won, and it was a “stolen” election. I have no idea whether there were significant voting irregularities in the first round, or if there would have been fraud in the second. Yet, while the Western media were screaming “fixed election” in Serbia, the US fiasco with Bush and Gore was minimal in comparison.
    I have met, and am acquainted with, several people from the former Yugoslavia who fled the conflict. None say Milosevic was wonderful (perhaps thinking I would expect them to) but none saying he was as bad as to the degree he was portrayed in Western media. Virtually all were angry about the role the EU and NATO played in the breakup. One Serb (Croatian wife) told me his brother, who lived in Bosnia, had stupidly joined one of the Serb militias, saying how you cannot live among people who want to kill you, and there were too many of them to kill all of them. In many ways, it sounded like my friends grandfather talking about why he left Ireland with his family shortly before the Easter Rising in 1916.

    Thank you Realist. I told family and others that these Democrat radicals waited till our WW2 generation died off. I walked the streets of a different NY City. Pawn shops were still selling WW1 Croix De Guerres. Beer was cheap in Bowery bars.
    The masses bought into the reality created by the mainstream media. I didn’t think the leftist radicals would violently disrupt our country this soon.
    I read Carroll Quigley’s book and many others. I was no academic scholar but I had much curiosity.
    I may die without ever using a smart phone.
    I realize we are of a different era. I guess American youth were never educated about Communism and how 5,700 Catholic priests were torture murdered in Spain 1935-39. College kids are only taught that Franco was a cruel dictator- things like that that few know of and don’t care about anyway. The human ego is monstrous. Where I live now there are few traffic lights and stop signs.

I saw some of the trial of Ratko Mladic, most notably the sentencing; where he finally lost his composure and told his mostly U. S.

    If we are ever going to defeat the monster of neoconservatism, we have to stop calling its agents and soldiers “leftist” and “socialist.” They are not by any stretch of the imagination proponents of anything resembling the fair and equal society theorized in the ideals of socialism. For one, they do not have the support of the working class; quite the contrary. They despise what remains of the US working class and try to curry favor with the oligarchic class, which they enjoy, for now. And instead of calling for class solidarity, they appeal to racial, ethnic, and sexual resentment, relying on reactionary emotion rather than reasoned vision for change. There are no proposals for workable socio-economic reform in their programs. They simply push for more and more divisive race-and-gender-based rectifications by fiat, which keep the weakest members of society at each other’s throats.

    The bankster-based media conglomerates can invoke LGBTQ and women’s issues all they want, but that doesn’t make them “leftist.” It doesn’t make them “progressive.” On the contrary, it merely makes them abettors, probably witting abettors, of the divide-and-rule strategies of a nihilistic and deeply decadent ruling class.

    If the criminals who pulled off the election fraud we’ve just witnessed, and who criminally hamstrung the Trump administration for four years at every turn–especially in his more positive moves, such as trying to draw down the US military presence in the Middle East–were actually “leftist,” there might be a faint, if dubious, ends-justifies-the-means silver lining to the present power grab. But there’s nothing of the sort. I believe that the electoral fraud, and the sabotaging of Trump’s policies for four years, is almost entirely driven by concerns about foreign policy. The CIA Deep State–the principal executor of the bogus “war on terror”–wants to resume the push for a “new Middle East.” Indeed we already see the criminal elements of the Bush and Obama years–the Susan Rices and Samantha Powers–emerging from the dank shadows to resume their genocide of the Arab world. If Biden gets in, expect the terrorist attacks to begin again at home.

    None of such politics could ever, in a million years, could be considered “leftist.” Imperialism of the finance-capital variety can never be “leftist.” And Mafia-style diplomacy by force, such as we’ve seen for the past 20 years, is the hallmark of totalitarian and fascist regimes.

    The global technocratic behemoth of which Joe Biden is the hologrammatic projection–with no real, body, mind, interior or exterior to speak of–is a totalitarian menace to the very notion of the human being. Indeed his patent non-existence, his clear image as a non-entity, is a powerful metaphor for the kind of non-individual the transhumanist geeks see as the ideal cog in the machine they are pushing on us.

    This must not stand. But to effectively oppose it, we must first understand it. Calling draconian, socially abusive and divisive authoritarian policies that serve an unaccountable capitalist oligarchy “leftist” and “progressive” merely muddies the waters and makes it more difficult to address the problem. People need to know what they’re up against. The present American liberal class is capitalist to the core and greatly enjoys its privilege. Any real leftist rebellion would be met by a response far more crushing than Trump’s reaction to the recent astroturf uprisings.

    A genuine leftist analysis and approach, such as I am presenting here, while not the only way to view these problems, at least helps to sort things out and rise above the name-calling. What we need to realize–and a few perceptive souls on both sides of the divide have pointed this out–is that those hurting among the lower classes, of all races and genders, must rise above the calculated divisionism of the media and political classes and band together to fight the common enemy.

    That is our only hope. In unity against the threat from above. I am a lifelong old-school leftist with a great deal of education and cosmopolitan culture (I speak four languages), and yet I have no problem whatsoever with rural, working class Americans. They are generally tolerant and easygoing. We will need them in our struggle. It’s the identity-politics spoiled children of the bourgeoisie who are the problem and the most reactionary element in the equation. Maybe four years of Biden will help to re-educate them.

I totally agree with your last two paragraphs–the evil political oligarch classes and the “identity-politics spoiled children of the bourgeoisie who are the problem and the most reactionary element in the equation.” Already, more and more white-black-Latino-Asian-whatever workers of whatever stripe are waking up to the FACT that the enemy is not another race/color/creed but the political and oligarch classes. And Biden and especially Harris will make sure they understand that. IMHO, a Trump re-election will only put everyone back to sleep; a Biden-Harris regime will have consequences for the elites that they, in their arrogance, simply cannot control. And it will not be a mass struggle; it will be the INDIVIDUAL standing up for the BILL OF RIGHTS. Millions and millions of us.

    Spectacular posting. One of the best analyses of our current devolutionary situation I have seen. Though I do not consider myself a leftist, rather a syncretist, your heart-felt expostulation makes more sense than the academicist Marxist mishmash spouted by one of my leftist friends. Most of my friends unfortunately bought into the “Jesus Christ vs. Godzilla” meme which has dominated presidential elections since the 80’s.

    Last time I voted presidentially was for the Nader-LaDuke ticket–essentially a protest vote. Yet, the woman who gave me a poster featuring LaDuke on horseback got suckered into the Biden shtick. Her husband did too, on the basis of a pristine Alaskan island with old-growth forest “resources” being released to the loggers by Trump. Even deep-dyed environmentalists have inadvertently become part of the problem—and as Eldridge Cleaver wrote in ‘Soul on Ice’, “If you’re not part of the solution you’re part of the problem”.

    The two-party duopoly is totally toxic, as both central committees take their orders from the higher minions of the plutocratic oligarchs. A pair of puppets, two strings, one puppetmaster. By the age of 23 or thereabouts I was in the process of graduating out of micro-politics (D & R) and into macro-politics —based on a broader perspective. Over the years, postgrad auto didacticism pulled me up into mega-politics (incorporating an international perspective of geopolitics together with a fuller realization of the role of the cabal of finance capital. After eagerly reading through your essay, I realize that you have gone through all these three stages and have theoretically conceptualized meta-politics, a dimension in which you perceive a wholistic understanding of our dilemma.

    Yes, truly the left-right paradigm is yet another example of Julius Caesar’s infamous dictum “Divide and conquer, divide and rule.” Building from the psychologically-based memes of Edward Bernays’ creation of the public relations industry and the near-perfection of mass mind control by monopolizing the message and repeat, repeat and reiterate all over again and again.

    Going back a full century, the American people have been victimized by the successful methodology of boiling a frog. Instead of tossing him into boiling water (from which he would quickly jump out) he is dropped into nice, lukewarm water, with the heat gradually being increased until the dirty deed is done. Temperature appears to currently be at 199 degrees and steadily rising. Gradualism.

    The road ahead is rocky, bumpy and deeply rutted. The cliffside is in sight as the rain comes down harder. Yet, we deplorables are awakening, It is likely that we will agree that the dawning of a fuller awareness of our predicament—this awakening—is a whole lot different from being the “woke”. It may be a good thing that “higher” edjumacasion is largely hors de combat at present, due to the Plandemic. Thus, the dark cloud may have a silver lining. The youthful would-be wokers are seated in front of their screens, deeply engaged in video games. Meanwhile, the natives are getting restless.

    Adunai, you’re being unfair or missed Dr. Morgan’s points. Technology, understood as more than machines and gadgets and the rage for efficiency, has outrun man’s ability to control it. Is there any doubt about it? given the development and release by the deep state of the coronavirus for the purposes of imposing shutdowns as a a prelude to the Great Reset, not to mention removing a president mainly with technology in the hands of the CIA/DNC/MSM casting more votes than even the dead or those cast with counterfeit paper ballots? Our young are the servants of life-sapping technological junk, not the other way around.

    Politicians are at the mercy of the bureaucrats and not the other way around. Propaganda is not about lies, but about psychologically manufacturing our consent to the grave evil the deep state does in our name on behalf of Jewish money, which half the electorate has accepted without a clue. This was all foretold in the middle of the last century by the French writer, Jacque Ellul in his classics, Propaganda, the Formation of Men’s Attitudes and The Technological Society, both of which used to be available on archive dot org, although they appear blocked now.

    Technology’s effects can be seen in a less contentious arena in its total dominance of finance and derivatives over the real economy, which in turn is held by both parties to be the only measure of human flourishing. American and European sovereignty will almost certainly go out, not with a bang, not even with a whimper, but with technologically all-powerful transnational compliance regimes, such as that proposed to ensure global coronavirus compliance and vaccination. Next, on to food and water as luxuries to be earned with “social credit,” such as children being awarded in school for denouncing their parents and grandparents.

    This conspiracy theory is being pushed by Lt. General Thomas McInerney.

    We’re supposed to believe his secret “contacts” … in the “intelligence agencies” … told him about Hammer/Scorecard.

    I was hardly alone in predicting that Trump would win in a landslide, with the only question being whether the Democrats et. al. monumentally increased capacity to steal the election would prove sufficient.

    Anyone who claims to know the answer isn’t thinking hard enough, or simply thinks if they say it they can make it so.

    We know that the plan they executed through Election Day and to the next day failed.

    Despite their “Count all the votes” sing-song beforehand, Blue States that are still counting were called immediately for Sleepy Joe yet the results from key Trump states once again remained in too close to call purgatory. Thus they were forced to go to plan b, playing their Fox/AZ card and professing to shutting down the count until the next morning. Uh huh.

    I know it seems like I just belabored the obvious but it’s essential to keep in mind that it didn’t go as planned for them. To the powers that be that monkeyed around I say ‘Boy, you really did it good this time. Because ‘The Most Important Election Of Our Lifetimes” has resolved nothing. Not the presidency, nor the Senate majority or even, if you’re paying attention, who will be Speaker in the next Congress.

    Before you count Trump out, accept that his legitimate 71M votes make him exceedingly powerful. Just walk through the relevant players, assessing who besides Trump wasn’t wholly discredited, if they even had any left to lose before 11 days ago.

    I noted this movie reference on another thread here:

    If your father dies, you’ll make the deal, Sonny.

    — “The Godfather”

    My point being, you’re foolish if you ascribe certainty as to outcome at this point.

    Being rid of Trump has been as close to a dues ex machina for the establishment as imaginable since he took the oath. This ineluctable observation elicits no end of foot-stomping by those who assume it necessarily says anything positive about the man.

    This entire establishment, foreign and domestic, had hoped to put Trump and his half of the country between a rock and hard place. Either he concedes defeat, with promises he can have another go at their rigged carnival game, or he’ll split and thus destroy the Republican Party.

    Do you get the sense that either Trump or his half of the country is going to accept the proffered Hobson’s choice? You’re failing a low-bar IQ test if you think Trump is going to surrender an expanded Republican Party. Even if Trump doesn’t take the oath again in this cycle, his dominance of the party remains.

    The other salient broad factor to consider is which side is demoralized? To ask the question is to answer it. Not only did their ship sail in 2016, but you have to be some kind of an idiot to think that headlining a Potemkin Village Idiot was going to get the project back on track.

    The gods like to have their fun. Perhaps most especially by morphing strengths into weaknesses. Does their near universal control of the establishment media, and their having to deploy it hostilely and dishonestly against Trump, strike you as something that will win the day (the way it would have in 2016 if the results were within their capacity to steal back)?

    They’re not fooling anyone anymore.

    And the Democrats are thoroughly demoralized. Yes, applying the Pareto Principle, 20% are Leninists in for a penny, in for a pound. The rest kinda like this constitutional republic thingie we’ve got going, and intuitively know that something approximating free and fair elections is a condition precedent to its survival.

    Don’t fall into the “Is it soup yet?” trap now, or even on January 20th. That’s the takeaway from the run up to The Civil War, with open discussion for decades of that outcome no one wanted but all participated in conjuring nonetheless.

    In the United States, elites over­produce themselves through economic and educational upward mobility: More and more people get rich, and more and more get educated. Neither of these sounds bad on its own. Don’t we want everyone to be rich and educated? The problems begin when money and Harvard degrees become like royal titles in Saudi Arabia. If lots of people have them, but only some have real power, the ones who don’t have power eventually turn on the ones who do.

    I’ve read War And Peace and War, Turchin’s theory is indeed basically cycles of elite overproduction and demographic collapse, but I notice he does not mention immigration as a cause of elite overproduction. The alienation of the technical civil servants from Trump (and by implication his 70 million voters) was presciently described by Michael Lewis in his book The Fifth Risk.

    There were hundreds of fantastically important success stories in the US government. They just never got told. … an astonishing number of them. He had detected a pattern: a surprising number of the people responsible for them were first-generation Americans who had come from places without well-functioning governments.”

    The trouble with Turchin and his over-production of elites theory, and those who talk about civil/ culture war, is they are assuming the elite establishment of the West is not only a limited hierarchy, but in a closed system which it most certainly is not. A high proportion of the technical knowledge class are the children of high quality immigrants and have risen to the top of the US elite; how can they avoid thinking of the mass of old Americans as somewhat limited. America attracting talented people from all over the world has been seen as its decisive advantage, and perhaps it would be if intelligence was not genetically determined as it is.

    Obama could be sort of a fit for Lewis’s ‘first-generation Americans’ pattern among the super successes of the knowledge class becoming a trend in the higher reaches of politics, but no question Harris definitely is, being the product of a union between a South Asian and an Afro -Caribbean both of who came to the US as adults. So foreign countries elites that move to the US and in one generation into the highest reaches of the technical and even ruling class is a proven thing, of which much more can be expected. I happen to think that the next few years will be quiet with even the unseemly retirement of Biden and inauguration of President Harris in less than a year being seen as inevitable (Bidens strange introduction of his granddaughter as his dead son a few weeks ago has convinced me Ted Rail was right: he does know what dementia looks like and Biden has the beginnings of a rapidly developing case of it). His people will have seen Joe do much worse, as President he is going to be carefully watched and given no chance for senior moment initiatives.

    The first generation immigrant–and increasingly just immigrant–component of the elite are useful for the elite to show (and possibly believe) that they are open to talent of any cultural heritage or racial diversity. In that sense Obama and Harris function to help the Old American elite. So, over the next five years I expect the superannuated foreign policy blob to revert to Cold War type and persecute Russia, driving it into steeper decline through being denied Western capital and technology, while being diverted into humiliating proxy wars on its borders (eg Armenia). China will blandly put up with US military flexing, while beating the pants off America economically.

    The relative power of China can only grow, though in truth there was never much chance of Trump succeeding in stymieing it. One day they will call what will by then become an American military bluff, but not much is going to happen till then. The presidents will re establish the old relationship with allies such as Germany, Japan and South Korea, and that will take the old form of those countries doing business with China and Russia while insisting they need US protection from China, for free. To get these allies to accept the gift of American defence will require America to supply free access to the American market. Meanwhile US corporations will give away their technical edge in joint ventures with the Chinese (building key factories there) in return for being given access to the US market.

    Brexit is an irrevocable step away from the policy that Superpower America had been urging on Britain since the 1950s and thought was settled. The US threatened to end its sharing of secret intelligence with Britain over Boris’s (quickly reversed) decision to give the UK 5g contract to Huawei. I think the threatening of the UK by Biden over the UK province of Northern Ireland will be comes as a tremendous shock British Deep State, and will prompt a reassessment. Britain will try to establish the kind of relationship that Germany has with capital goods. Chinese billionaires will be enticed to have their money in London. Boris is basically of the City and wants Singapore-on-Thames, as he put it.

    Domestically, I expect America being deluged by a tsunami of highly capable immigrants, whose children will become future presidents. I think Trump’s skill and attributes, including pre existing reality TV celebrity, make him a complete anomaly, and like Muhammad Ali who dominated boxing while doing it ‘wrong’, there will never be another one like him., and without another Trump immigration cannot be reduced. It’s tragic because he came so close. and if he had won a second term the establishment resistance to him would have collapsed (like Roosevelt’s Deep State opponents bowed to the people’s will after he was re elected). Naive of Trump to trust that once the pandemic started the substantially foreign technical class including civil servants at the FDA’s were not going to be using Covid to overthrow him by delaying good news about vaccines.

    Very fine post. And thank you. Though I still define as a leftist, I agree that the left-right paradigm, at least in the formation of political blocs, is scarcely applicable in the present dilemma. It is only valid when you have a large and powerful working class that is able to assert its demands. Both sides of the aisle in Washington have made sure that this is no longer the case, and it’s less and less the case in Europe as well. The ruling class very carefully dismantled the basis of working-class power (unions and manufacturing) and then offshored the whole show. The instituted left then obliged the masters by falling on their swords–especially in Europe, but also, in a sense, in the US as well, when the already lame Democratic party sold its soul to capitalist Clintonism. In such an instance, is it really a surprise when, finding their own interests unrepresented, that the dispossessed working class flocks to rightist populists like Trump? He at least mouths their concerns, however insincere he might be.

    The present political fight is between two rightwing factions: global finance capitalism vs nationalist capitalism. To me that is not a choice, even though, to my immense surprise, the nationalists, for now, seem like the lesser evil. They are mostly against war, which is already a very big step. I don’t vote. I voted for Obama in 2008 only to feel betrayed mere weeks after his election. He did a very great deal of damage around the world and within US borders. I fully concur with radical Black journalist Glen Ford in calling Obama “the more effective evil” with respect to GW Bush. The blinding of the liberal class to his misdeeds is one of the great propaganda coups of our time.

    To begin with, Americans need to look up the meaning of socialism in a dictionary. Socialism (the foundation of leftism) is a system in which the means of production are socially owned, that is, national owned. A left position does NOT have anything to do whatsoever with advocacy of LGBTQ, street rioting, and other woke nonsense. If you feel that services like social media, internet, big banking etc. need to be subjected to strict anti-monopoly and anti-Trust controls and other legislated controls you are inclining left. If, on the other hand, you feel that Google, Facebook, the big banks etc. should be ‘free’ to conduct their affairs the way they see fit, you are inclining right.

    The extreme left and extreme right positions seem to fuse into the same outcome, namely loss of individual liberty. “Nationally owned means of production” ends up with these falling under dictatorial control. “Free market ownership of means of production” ends up with a few fat cats owning everything, including us – as we can see in the mind control and speech control powers taken over by Google and Facebook in the name of ‘freedom’ of private enterprise. Happy with paying 28% rate of interest on your credit cards? Well that is the joy of the ‘free market’ for you!

    Perhaps some center position, pragmatically selected on a case by case basis, and evolving with technological and other change, may be the ‘golden mean’. The devil will always lie in the detail, however, so without commonsense, intellectual honesty, and tolerance good luck trying to establish a functioning golden mean.

    Just my two cents.

Hmm, would I as a 21 year old in this day of the internet know about Jewish control and the (((military industrial complex?))) I think I would have figured it out since I was racially aware at such a young age and felt things weren’t really kosher. It took me about 30 or so years of living pre internet before I found out about the JQ because I had a hunch something wasn’t right and wondered why so many people didn’t like Jews. I grew up thinking Hitler was the epitome of evil and the Jews were meek, humble and morally superior to Germans, Irish, French, etc. Oh, I was in the military but that was during a rare moment in history that America wasn’t fighting somewhere. I joined because I needed a paycheck, nothing more, nothing less. I find it funny when people will tell me, “thank you for your service.” Hell, I was only serving myself, and needed a job. lololol.

That is a tall order and at the moment (Looking in from outside, admittedly.) I don’t see the elements of such a coming together happening in the USA.

    Recalling one day when a pair of old Norskies (1st generation Americans) went at it in a political debate right out there on the sidewalk. Ole was from a strugglebuggy swampland farm area north of town. He was a staunch Farmer-Labor Party supporter (they later got swallowed up by the Democrats). Sven had inherited a 160 acre (full-sized farm back in the day) piece of rich farmland. He was all-on with the then country-club Yankee dominated Republicans.

    During the course of the debate, with snoos-juice spattering the sidewalk and both old boys getting louder and louder, Sven gradually was getting the better of Ole. Spitting out his whole wad and throwing his cap on the sidewalk, Ole hollered out: “Vell, it’s a free country, isn’t it?”

    Was never particularly good in chemistry class but a few things stuck. The word “reagent”, a substance which induces a chemical reaction between two other chemicals and combines them into a whole new entity. I see Trump in this role. He has cued the “Deplorables” to the Deep $tate and to Fake News. Most folks with two or more connecting synapses already knew this, but felt a bit lonely and exposed expressing their intuitive understandings. The “experts” on boobtoob noose interviews all “proved” them wrong.

    Trump effectively blew that entire set of memes to smithereens. In effect, he crossed the Rubicon and provided the commons with a unifying foundation for resistance to the constant din of propaganda and control over the narrative. Whether or not it was intended or just calculated to bring in the votes, Trump enabled and created a movement which simply needed that reagent to jell into a whole new sense of unity and resistance.

    Perhaps the greatest threat to our people’s movement is the whole racial divide, so energetically pushed by the minder- binders and their media minions. We must not get side-tracked into mutual hatreds with other victims of the takeover. They are being USED by the enemies of humanity, but people of different ethnicities or races are NOT the enemy. It is significant that Trump’s vote totals expanded among both blacks and Hispanics. Some of them, mostly rural folk and older, more experienced “been through that already” types in urban areas, do get it.

    In our original revolutionary struggle beginning with the Concord township militia facing off the British regulars on the other side of the bridge, Benjamin Franklin laid it out nice and clear: “If we do not all hang together, you may rest assured, they shall hang us all separately”. Years later, emerging from the Constitutional Convention, Franklin was confronted by a lady who asked “what kind of government have you given us”? “A republic, Ma’am, if you can keep it”.

    Our ruptured Republic is currently in a state of disrepair, dissolution and nearing total demolition. As Thomas Paine, author of Common Sense, stated “These are the times that try men’s souls”. Now is the time for all good folk to come to the aid of our country. It has been hijacked by the Bankster cabal and their highly edjumacated minions.

    This type of writing is nothing more than “yellow journalism” at its worst, since the fact-less foundations are there for everyone to see.

    Dr. Paul Craig Roberts has also seemingly gone off the deep end in this regard writing recently in support of Trump, something he has never done in the past.

    Does anyone really believe that the Democratic machine has such fine control over all the state voting processes that they would actually design a scenario that would basically have them scrape by while leaving a degenerate like Mitch McConnell in place?

    And Mafia-style diplomacy by force, such as we’ve seen for the past 20 years, is the hallmark of totalitarian and fascist regimes.

    Even though fascism the first time around was disgraced by Mussolini and especially Hitler, it is the most honest and useful ideology, and the future must be neo-fascist. Indeed, the best systems in the world are cryto-fascist in so many ways. Ataturk’s Turkey, New Russia, and New China are closer to fascism than communism or what is called ‘liberal democarcy’, is really donorocracy, rule by rich donors. And why are Israel and Hungary hardier than other nations? Because they are fascist-democracies, or democracies centered on national identity/unity than on money and individuality.

    As for abuse of power by globalism, it should be called ‘Fecest’ or ‘Feceist’ because its might is justified in service of Homo-mania, the Cult of Identity centered around celebration of sodomy or homo fecal-penetration. Yes, the homo anus, the fecal organ, is the most sacred object in the globo-homo order.

    Therefore, the current power is ‘fecest’ or ‘feceist’, not truly fascist.

    Current US is ‘feceist’.

    Yugoslavia was dismantled for its new owners. It was a bit too independent for Zion US and friends.
    The article below is about Bob Baer’s book about the CIA’s dismantling of Yugoslavia. He answered some questions about the CIA and its destructive work in Yugoslavia in 1990s. Serbs were the scrape goat since they were the most numerous ethnic group of the Old Yugoslavia.

    https://hangthebankers.com/cia-agent-dismember-yugoslavia/

    Ultimately why do you think Yugoslavia collapsed and why did your government want to do it?

    It is all very clear, the people who incited the war and dictated the terms of the peace now own the companies that exploit various mineral resources and the like! They simply made slaves of you, your people work for nothing and that produce goes to Germany and America…they are the winners! You will eventually have to purchase and import what you have created yourself, and since you have no money, you have to borrow, that’s the whole story with the whole of the Balkans!

    Do you have a message for the people of the former Yugoslavia?

    I have. Forget the past, it was staged and false. They manipulated you, they got what they wanted and it is stupid that you still hate one another, you must show that you are stronger and you realise who has created this ! I sincerely apologise! That’s why I have for a long time disclosed the secrets of the CIA and the White House!

    Kosovo was wanted desperately for a good place for US Zion military base. It is the largest in Europe now. Crimea was thought be a Kosovo part II but it did not work out so good.

    You were never in Kosovo as a CIA agent, but did you feel any pressure from America?

    Of course! Kosovo has taken for two reasons, first because of mineral and natural resources, and secondly, Kosovo is a military base of NATO! In the heart of Europe is their largest military base.

    Good, every functioning democracy in history has restricted the vote to free male landowners, something with neolithic, delayed gratification and long-term thinking.
    If this is the case, the rightful heir of the Founders´republic would have been the

    Certainly. In any revolution, the radical elements oust the moderates only to be in turn ousted by more extreme radicals, until the walls come tumbling down, usually in the form of a dictatorship that pays lip-service to the goals of the revolution but is actually bent on imposing its own semblance of order (Lazare Carnot, who had Robespierre deposed and “terminated” in 1794, seems to have been the exception to the rule).

    2020 should be the year of 20/20 vision. One of clarity. Scales should finally fall off the eyes of all those patriots and ‘conservatives’.

    Big Capital, Zionists, Military Leadership, and Law Enforcement are NOT on their side.

    Big Money is totally for Biden even though Trump sucked up to Wall Street.
    Zionists are totally for Biden even though Trump went out of his way to kiss Netanyahu’s toes.
    Military Elites want to play more war games abroad. Lacking in ideas, the ONLY way they can feel important is by playing chess with the world. They don’t care about dead foreigners or dead US soldiers.
    Law Enforcement, from FBI and the police, will only do as ordered by the Power. Power decided the Antifa can beat you up, but if you join the Proud Boys and fight back, YOU get arrested and the key is thrown away.

    2020 calls for 2o/20 vision on what the power is and what it does. Any ‘conservative’ who still yammers about ‘saving capitalism from socialism’ or ‘defend Israel’ and ‘support the troops’ is an idiot. Maybe rank-and-file policemen are good guys, but we all saw what happened. They just followed orders and did NOTHING to protect neighborhoods.

    Also, the way forward isn’t ‘conservatism’. It is a balance of things. Free Speech is a liberal notion, and it is useful. There is worth in conservative values and liberal outlooks. There must be a balance of things. This polarity of right vs left is an unfortunate development of the French Revolution.
    Unbalanced rightists and unhinged leftists are both deeply problematic to society. The best of fascism was seeking a balanced unity of left and right. Israel is a tough little country because there are shared themes to make the left and right unite around identity and history.

    Balancism isn’t the same as craven ‘moderation’ or ‘centrism’ that seeks to avoid controversy or passion by sticking to whatever is deemed ‘middle of the road’. Balancism understands that just as one walks with both left leg and right left, the human minds needs balance. It’s like we need a balanced diet.

    The problem with Trump is his form of balancism failed because his style was of pandering than uplifting. It’s one thing to say US needs to curtail immigration so that blacks and white working class can have more access to jobs and chance at life.
    It’s another thing to pander to worst of blackness, like idiot rap culture, and to pander to red meat white populism(that is on the dumb side). Pandering usually flatters the lowest instincts of any group. And people see right through it. It’s why GOP’s pandering to Jews hardly wins over any Jews. Jews know it’s just pandering to Jews for money and favors.

    Trump didn’t lose.

    Trump won the legitimate election.

    But more importantly, even if Trump did really lose, it’s because the whole system is rigged.

    Imagine if Trump got the media treatment that Obama got in 2008. He would have totally stomped Hillary. Or suppose Trump and Hillary got the same media treatment. Trump would have comfortably won.

    Suppose media had any principles and didn’t push the nonsense of Russia Collusion. Suppose the media didn’t sabotage Trump’s pull out plans from the Middle East by shedding crocodile tears of ‘Muh Kurds’.

    Suppose Media gave Trump and Biden the same treatment. Suppose Big Tech(owned by Jews or controlled by Jews) didn’t shut down so many conservative voices.
    Suppose Jewish Power weren’t so dirty to pull off something like Covid hysteria and BLM lunacy.

    Trump would have demolished Biden. If not for Covid and BLM, Trump could have even gotten nearly 20% of the black vote. That is why Jews pushed BLM. They sensed Trump is winning over blacks with pro-jobs rhetoric while the Democrats have been pushing for more immigration and globo-homo. So, in 2020, they had to throw red meat at blacks by letting them loot and cheering them on. Jews play this dirty. (In the past, Democrats denounced urban rioting. They didn’t do enough against it but certainly didn’t cheer it on. But in Jewish-run US, the powers-that-be cheer on black thuggery just for votes.)

    Even with all that, Trump came close to winning. Even rowing upstream, he almost made it.

    Now, many in the media will tell themselves privately, ‘Yes, we did play dirty, BUT we had to do whatever was necessary to stop racist Trump.’ Now, if the media folks were truly invested in ‘anti-racism’ and really did see Trump as hitler, I can understand their motivations. But these people are totally okay with black supremacist thuggery, Zionist genocide of Palestinians, more murderous wars for Israel, and exploitation of the masses with gambling and drugs. They know Jews got supremacist power and suck up to it. And if Trump was sort of hitlerian about anything, it was in his saber-rattling at Iran and support of Israel. But the progs were never critical of Trump’s sick sucking up to Zionists. Instead, believe Trump is ‘hitler’ because he said NO to illegal immigration.

    So, all this anti-Trumpism wasn’t motivated by ideals or principles but by either Jewish supremacism or pathetic cucking to Jewish supremacism.

    Buy the Palestinian flag and wave it.

    It seems the Deep State, whilst successful in dividing the people politically and ideologically over recent years, have over-reached with their increasingly obvious plandemic and some semblance of unity is taking shape amongst the people who, on this side of the pond at least, are beginning to smell the stench of fascism in the air. Resistance is mounting every day.

    That they declared their intentions re the “great reset” only adds to the sense of trepidation ordinary people are feeling right now.

    Trump, as far as I’m concerned is an arse hole, but a highly symbolic (and oh so very orange!) arse hole. He has a great deal of support amongst “deplorables” all over Europe and Britain.

    Who is going to confiscate guns from 100M Americans? The police? The FBI? Antifa? The military with only about 200,000 combat troops? How long is it going to take? Ten years? I guess everyone with a gun will just sit around waiting for their turn for the storm troopers to come to their house. Oh, wait maybe they’ll nuke the gun toting rascals. Nukes only work on military targets and cities; the cities are filled with Democrats so no great waste there. Well, maybe they’ll nuke some cornfields in Nebraska; that will teach everybody who’s boss.

    The most likely scenario is to start with required National gun registration, and make it a felony if the guns are not registered by a certain time. Then once you know where the guns are, seize them all in a short period of time. That, of course, is fraught with risk for the Government. It presents every gun owner with their own personal Rubicon. Surrender, and be incapable of personal defense, or become a felon. Once a person is a felon, they no longer have anything besides their life to lose. An armed person with nothing to lose is the most free (and dangerous) animal on the planet. Even one million armed, free people roaming this country (one percent of gun owners) would present a disaster to the Government. Remember what one sniper did to DC.

    Bittersweet.

    I’ve long been pissed as hell about what the pompous, ignorant, morons running the country have been doing to the rest of the world since practically forever, and I always will be. Especially since I know what hideous swine they are. I’ve always tried to talk sense to them whenever I could, to no avail, and long ago quit voting for anyone in the federal government for all the good that ever did.

    At the same time, I’m glad that I’ve lived to see the degenerate assholes being taken down a notch even though I’ll be taking it in the shorts with the rest of my fellow dumbasses and there’s not a damn thing I can do about it.

    I, too, am sorry for the senseless crap “my” country did to yours and so many others. I only wish there were some effective way to make the perverted bastards responsible pay. I’m probably more pissed about it than many of you are particularly because the scum have been committing outrageous crimes against you, my brothers and sisters, with my resources and under my name against my will.

    I hope they roast in hell for eternity, and it’s a damned good thing I am not god almighty.

  164. Apparently there’s talk of a “White Strike” around January 24-30th (for a whole week)–for all normal white people to basically call in sick or take off work (“hey, it’s covid or something I guess”) to show the other 50 percent what the nation looks like without the deplorable tax slaves doing anything–for just one week.

    As it was explained to me, rather convincingly,

    Your vote doesn’t count. They hate you and your children. They hate your ancestors, your music, art, history, literature, culture, and way of life, and they want you dead. What happens when you just start to fight back. The MAGA march is just the beginning. Trump was just a (failed) man and president. What happens when you actually stop giving a fuck?

    70 million people have been told they are slaves to the other 70 plus million, and that on top of it, they are supposed to like it and endure constant gaslighting. What happens when white people stop working, paying their mortgage…stop giving a fuck? Like all the welfare recipients and deadbeats that do absolutely nothing for the nation but are the subject of constant pandering and public policy benefits.

    70 million people have been red pilled. What happens when they fight back and don’t give a fuck about consequences? What are the consequences of caring and paying your mortgage and all these petty taxes and fees whites pay. All the bullshit at work and at their children’s school (programming, affirmative action, gaslighting). What happened when you played by all the rules? They stole your election and threw your vote in the trash.

    Sounds great in theory but – between social atomization, the slowly-fading but still undeniably prevalent American addiction to work (which is probably much stronger in Trump voters), and plain old financial need, real or perceived (“I can’t afford to strike”) – nothing will happen.

    And I’m really confused as to why it would be after the inauguration. If it’s about keeping Trump in office it should ideally be this month or very early December before any of the electoral college gears start to turn.

    Serb forces in Bosnia-Herzegovina had committed the vast majority of the atrocities committed against civilians. Serb forces had shelled Sarajevo, a large, sophisticated city — and set up snipers around it. This was a city full of civilians, and the assault went on for over three freaking years! What kind of mindset causes people to do such a barbaric thing?

    As for the massacre of Serb men & boys in Srebrenica, readers should know that large numbers of Serbs consider the mastermind of that crime, Ratko Mladic, to be almost a hero, and they cooperated in keeping him from being captured for over a decade.

    We readers of the Unz Review are rightly critical of the actions of the Anglo-Zionist Empire, but we shouldn’t give a pass to crimes committed by those who were opponents of the Empire.

    Trump’s uncle was the son of German immigrants and a MIT professor. You aren’t really saying that Trump is representative of his supporters, or that because his mother came to the US from Scotland in the thirties, Trump is like Obama or Kamala are you? Supporters of Trump, who tend not to be the children of immigrants or from third world countries (as so many in the scientific civil service are according to Michael Lewis), seem absent from the technical professional fields.

    Supporters of Trump in the relevant companies or the FDA or even Wall Street analysts/ the science media would have prevented the deliberate delay to the vaccine and blatant discouraging of other treatments happening. So much for noticing, the lack of capability is a terrible disadvantage because the people brought in to head these organisation by Trump attracted the contempt of the experts working their for the inability of the appointees to understand what was going on. There was enough from a careful reading of what people like Ezekiel ECT were openly saying that there could have been some warnings given about people being held to account for sabotaging of test program to delay an announcement of progress before the election. I mean decades in prison.

    Wilbur Ross came in for a single briefing meeting after being named as the new US commerce secretary. One of the people who was there said: “I was shocked. Just this very old guy, all by himself. And it was pretty clear he had no idea what he was getting into. And he had no help.”

    Ross had been lying about how rich he was too it emerged.

    This time it was vaccines next time it may be AI, or God knows what. Or would be if there was anyone else who was going to ban Muslims and build a wall that got into the White House. No one will so it will not be necessary to stage a work to rule in attempts at stymieing a solution for a crisis where thousands are dying again. But it is clear that the aggregated power of those who working for the government is very much underestimated. While they don’t take explicit industrial action like didn’t work for air traffic controllers, their passive aggressive clandestine tactics are extremely effective at discrediting their ostensible bosses.

    The deep state will inform him that if he goes quietly, they’ll not come after him or his family.

    That move is blocked. The deep state never keeps agreements. Trump knows that, and so does everybody else. The Russian assessment, “not agreement capable”, is universal.

    The deep state is visibly failing. Trumps best move is to continue as the leader of the Red States (actually, “Red Counties” would describe Trump’s coalition better), diverge yet more from the Deep State, and build a base that can negotiate from a position of strength with the Deep State. That has been his best move from the day he declared for the Presidency.

    The Deep State is a quite run of the mill coalition of the Federal bureaucracy and the urban political organizations. Both have decayed — the bureaucracy has become a repository for deadwood, the urban political organizations are dependent on an urban infrastructure, tax revenues, and their visibly waning hold on the various migrant communities they brought in to keep their cities populated. They are incapable of running an industrial society. Trump would be a fool to surrender to it.

    Using the Roman analogy, Caesar crossed the Rubicon and marched on Rome with his army that had killed a million and enslaved a million in Gaul because he could not otherwise negotiate with the Senate. Had he left his army at the Rubicon river, the Roman Senate would have, quite legally, legally killed him. Caesar, and Trump, had simply grown too powerful to exist inside a system that had abandoned all ideals (the “mos majoram”) but depended upon those ideals for its survival. The system might have co-opted Caesar, but he was outstandingly successful, so it tried to kill Caesar.

    This situation was all inevitable from the day of Trump’s election.

    What happens should Trump vanish somehow?

    During the fall of the USSR, Gorbachev attempted to reform an unworkable system whose members had pursued informal goals rather than the formal goals of their system (the informal descriptor for that is “corrupt”). Although Gorbachev was an insider, his efforts destabilized the system, and he was displaced by a group of Neo-Stalinist Communists. This group proved unable to rule (being old and sick and having no reliable people in their organization, which describes Biden’s coalition also), and an outsider took over. The analogy here would be Trump vanishing somehow and another “leader of the Red Counties” emerging.

    There is some chance that the Supreme Court will recognize the above situation and rule that the clearly stolen election by amended in some way, perhaps by relying on the vote prior to the end of voting. That would produce a major revolt, but would, in the mid-term, produce fewer casualties than the long and drawn out failure that the current Deep State and its urban allies would impose simply by trying to fund urban areas and a decaying yet expanding bureaucracy.

    After all, C. J. Caesar was assassinated early in his rule by other Senators (the “Deep State” of his time) with whom he had tried to reach agreement. There followed the Roman Civil War, a war bad enough that, after it was over, the Romans had lost their taste for warfare and it became difficult to staff the Legions. The Emperor had to pass a statute making it illegal to lop of an index finger to avoid military service.
    In the USSR analogy, Yeltsin, the new ruler in the USSR, also didn’t last long. He, like the Neo-Stalinists, had no functional governmental structure with which to fend off predators. The rule of the oligarchs ensued, the Russian economic and demographic catastrophe roughly equivalent to the Roman Civil Wars, a that was, perhaps, a necessary transition to the Russian Federation’s stable raw material export economy. Amazing how much pain and suffering “necessary transition” can cover. Whatever evil the oligarchs did, they did destroy the last of the infectiously incompetent Russian State enterprises and thus make an export economy possible.

    By analogy, the USA is facing something much like that of Rome and the USSR. And so it goes.

    Darwin’s daughter once asked her father “Why does it all have to be so cruel?”. That’s the “problem of pain”, and over the entire evolutionary history of the human race, nobody has been able to answer the question convincingly. Bear that in mind when discussing the Trump affair.

    People in the military are some of the most robotic and compliant people around.

    Most of the people in the military today are, sad to say, just like you: incapable of dong more than jeering at everybody else [1], a tactical disaster when in contact with the enemy, and busy patting yourself on the back because the Left tells you that you are a heroic resister (or perhaps capacitor, one of those two). That’s why the forces that actually fight are either mercenary or highly screened by difficult combat training or flight/technical training. It’s gotten so bad that the US Army for a time repurposed Special Forces from training insurgents to targeted strikes on low level insurgency unit leadership, hoping that would have a strategic effect. See: https://www.cato.org/cato-journal/winter-2018/oppose-any-foe-rise-americas-special-operations-forces-mark-moyar . Turned out that it didn’t.

    Look, to understand what has happened to the American establishment, consider the following analogy: you can live in a cardboard box in the dry season. When it rains, the cardboard turns to mush, and patching it doesn’t help.

    1] I’ve had Navy officers tell me that they were better than the Army people because they didn’t kill people. Navy officers spend much of their time crewing weapons so large that they literally spend months living inside their weapons. These same Navy officers had no criticism of the Marines, except perhaps that they were too competent and attentive to duty.

    Remember the phrase I want to believe from the X Files TV series? People want to believe in that which they need to believe in. Therefore, the deep state telling Trump to slink away is absolutely an option.

    Trump was the enemy from day one. I get that. However, he didn’t use what power he had under law to do anything of substance, so he’s just a windbag and not worth worrying about. One second after taking the oath of office, he could have declared an end to all foreign entanglements and a return of all US military personnel and equipment to the US as Commander In Chief.

    He had 4 years to do that but didn’t. The fact that he didn’t start any new conflicts is somehow a plus for him in some people’s minds, but that cuts no mustard with me. He allowed the continuation of murder and mayhem for the 4 years of his watch. He has innocent blood on his hands.

    His DOJ allowed Hillary off the hook by ignoring her. His Hiring practices would have been better had he picked random citizens out of a phone book. The man is a colossal failure. Under his regime, nothing substantial changed.

    Trumps best move is to continue as the leader of the Red States (actually, “Red Counties”

    This is actually one of the less crazy ideas that have been kicked around here.

    It is low likelihood but not impossible.

    Perhaps it could play out like this:

    –Trump is denied re-election despite blatant fraud as the Republican party stabs him in the back at the last minute
    –Trump organizes mass strikes by farmers and transport workers who block access to cities
    –Trump represents the strikers in negotiations that drag on for months
    –A “Compromise” is reached (sorta like the Compromise of 1877) where some forms of autonomy are granted to Trump counties.

    “Perhaps the greatest threat to our people’s movement is the whole racial divide, so energetically pushed by the minder- binders and their media minions.”

    Yes. They have been at this very very hard. To use a favorite phrase of theirs, a very great deal of what the MSM say these days, especially about the dispossessed working class, resembles “hate speech” to me.

    Conveniently forgotten is how many prior Obama voters voted for Trump in 2016, and probably 2020.

    And so the powers-that-be have been working overtime on rebuilding the racial divide–using all the major global construction companies of consciousness–while pretending the opposite. The inverted use of language that began with Bush/Cheney and 9/11, where they use terms and phrases to mean the exact opposite of the reality they describe, continues apace.

    I agree that Trump’s open reference to the lies of the media is one positive effect of his presidency. The only problem is that the Establishment has fairly successfully exploited the resuscitated use of the timeworn left/right paradigm to corral those aware of media mendacity into their conveniently created “right wing” pen. Such labeling has not always been the case. Very often, beginning with the JFK conspiracy, those calling out the systematic lies of the media and government fell into the “liberal” and “left wing” camps. And in the years following 9/11, many of my fellow skeptics concerning that event were also, like me, sympathetic to left wing views and philosophies.

    It would be an interesting research project into the propagandistic manufacturing of attitudes to examine and document the evolution of this shift, which I am certain was intentional. Among other things, in effecting such a shift, they have deprived the left wing view–not to mention every view belonging to anyone outside their designated “fringe”–of a valuable critical tool to understanding current events and their framing by government and media.

    I suspect that Cass Sunstein’s strategy of “cognitive infiltration” of dissident groups, and Obama’s creepy concern for “curating” information, had something to do with this.

    I pitched FOX overboard years ago when they brought on black Juan Williams. I have watched Tucker from time to time but early on I had my doubts about him.

    When Dylann Roof went on his shooting spree of which he will justifiably pay with his life, Tucker dismissed anything Roof had to say about his motives for the shootings. Tucker would not so much as assess Dylann’s ‘manifesto’ and any merit it may have had. The ‘manifesto’ highlights many of the critical issues concerning American cultural decay and bitter race relations.

    Tucker took the cowards way out and never mentioned the legitimate issues brought up by Dylann which gets to the reality of daily life for whites in a black run America. Tucker, at his core, is weak. While he condemned the removing of Confederate bones from parks and cemeteries, he was not too loud on the issue. He said after all, the Confederates lost, ‘and good they did’. The latter comment shows me Tucker is as ignorant as Rush on the subject of the Southern War of Independence and how that loss impacted the American degeneracy we are saddled with today.

    Youtuber Soph a fifteen year old, but not criminal like Dylann, dared to speak the truth about globohomo, public schools, negro worship, black crime, pedos, and queer pride. Soph for her trouble got kicked off Youtube and has now gone behind a paywall. Neither Rush nor Tucker dare to speak on these issues unless so obliquely as to bury the problem.

    Pontless rhubarb over rigged elections, what bullshit. Wouldn’t be suprised if the sequel is a period like the Church and Pike Committees, run by Republicans this time. The historical parallels are important.

    First, CIA just purged a President again. Back then it was Nixon. Now it’s another case of insubordination to CIA by the presidential puppet ruler. The GOP is nursing a grievance again. This time Democrats sided openly with CIA. Revenge will be fun.

    Second and more importantly, the DCI once again caught a tit in the crimes-against-humanity wringer, which is now codified and institutionalized worldwide. US state crimes of disappearance, torture and arbitrary detention remain unresolved, as the 2020 UPR shows – countries will not let the matter drop. Compelling evidence of CIA biological warfare – SARS-COV-2 – is an even bigger deal. This and related CIA crimes have been the subject of an ongoing mutiny in the BWC treaty body.

    Back in the day, Congress pinned the illegal bombing of neutral Cambodia on Nixon, by flashing it as a draft impeachment charge. That, together with the Pike Committee’s “CIA works for the president” whopper, let the USG claim they got rid of the bad apples. Back then aggression was a crime of state, so purging one fall guy more or less atoned for the act.

    Heads will need to roll this time too. But since the days of Nixon’s sacrifice, international criminal law has been codified as an individual responsibility. It’s open season on any designated scapegoat worldwide. That raises the stakes. Trump is too recalcitrant to be a credible scapegoat in the transnational space. The world will want to get their hands on someone with municipal-law impunity – that is, someone who works for CIA, directly or sub rosa as a dotted-line report. Under CTOC, deniable CIA covert ops can be investigated and prosecuted worldwide as serious crimes. That’s a term of art and it’s much broader than the Rome Statute’s list.

    Individual congressworms and judges do not want to wind up in Nuremberg II, or Khabarovsk II. They will have to throw a virgin into the volcano. That will be easy because there’s nothing left of US law but red-tape pretexts for arbitrary detention. Just pick a bum and fry her!

    Pinning it on some military hillbilly won’t fly in international forums. Gina? Or Brennan. More likely is some poor CIA agent. You remember how CIA threw Sabrina de Souza out of the helicopter as a torture perp. Maybe CIA agent Sheldon Adelson will hold the bag this time! The crowds would go wild.

    In any case, lots of CIA big shots will become chairborne rangers at Langley as the long arm of the law closes in. And their intel and their ops will suck worse and worse until CIA is shut down as tits on a bull. That’s the endgame. Ask around.

    Thank you for reminding me of the influences generated by Cast Sunstein and his strategy of “cognitive infiltration”. From this we could assume that this individual is one of THEIR prime theoreticians. Also was unaware of Obama’s “curating information” postulation. Doubtful whether he came u with the concept…but as a presenter, he was chosen correctly.

    These two examples point to a relatively small nexus of strategists behind the curtains of obfuscation and disinformation. So we are likely looking at some mutual conglomeration of think-tanks—and there is a slew of foundation and deep state funded entities of that ilk. They may well employ a “fusion” system akin to that which, headed by the FBI., has developed a control net over regional and localized “law” enforcement agencies….several interlocking agencies working together.

    As I tend to be more of a syncretizer than a prime researcher, your “manufacturing of attitudes” project would not be a direction in which my efforts could be of use. We can establish a few points of understanding, beginning with the tiny core of the cabal, such as the Rothschild Crime Clan and their American Gauleiters, the Rockefeller gang. Behind those crime clans, there logically exists the Sanhedrin, ensconced deeply within the shadows, to the point that any efforts in that direction would be essentially useless at this time.

    So we come to the Minions like Heinrich Kissinger who do appear to have highly developed skills as synthesizers. Thence onto the likes of Sunstein and those think-tank braintrusts. That is a zone which might be scrutable. Identities might be established. If WE had access to the FBI’s personality profiling systems at Quantico, this ball of yarn might be relatively easy to unravel. We are, though, merely private individuals who can at best research and speculate.

    “Little waves, gone in an hour replaced with the next stupidity”. Superb analysis and excellent expostulation in a language which is not your own.

    Apologies: “Meine Deutsch verstandnis und sprechen, vieleicht zo gut wie ein vier jahre alt Deutsche Kind ist”. “Und gramatischliche schrecklich.” “Aber Ich kann ganz besser das Deutsch wie das Kind lesen.” “Entschuldigen Sie Mir, bitte, aber mein studieren aus das Deutsch hat nur durch Neunzehn-Hundert-zwei und Sechzig gegangen.” …and that having been in an American “high school”.

    My teachers were in the first two years, Fräulein Lorraine Grosz and in the third ,Herr Rudi Martignacco, a Volkdeutscher who had been born in Jugoslawien and deported to Osterreich as a child. His ancestry was Schwäbisch and I never did discover the background of his Italianate surname. They were both excellent teachers, but my gradeschool grundlage in grammar was pathetic. As the courses were based on an academic, grammatical approach, I was a bit handicapped as a result.

    Again, I fully agree with your position on newspapers and television. Never, have I allowed a “boobtoob” into my home. My library is rather extensive, though and now with the internet, one can, if sufficiently diligent, both research and communicate with relative ease. Not that the 17 U$ intelligence agencies, the British Mi6 and the Mossad is incapable of carefully dissecting every word and possibly even nuance. That is the reality of the Matrix in which we are ensconced.

Thus, we cannot resurrect the past as the Judie-Christie Magick-Mindfuck devolution from Classical Hellenic culture has achieved its perigee.

    Thank you for your substantive reply.

    Trump did do something very important: he demonstrated that somebody could stand up to the Deep State (a coalition of various government bureaucracies and urban political organizations) and survive. He did not do what he promised to do in the way that he promised to do it, but he did block the plans of the Deep State. Immigration, for example, has been greatly reduced.

    Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton had, according to her supporters, plans to greatly increase immigration and distribute it through Red Counties so as to eliminate the Red County advantage in Electoral College votes, and to do so permanently by further altering USA demographics. She also planned to continue POTUS Obama’s practice of ruling through executive order, and most likely would have continued appointment of Democrat agents (“activists”) as Federal judges to prevent judicial overturning of her executive orders.
    These measures were necessary for survival of the Blue Urban areas, as they were visibly running out of money, out of ability to support their constituencies. One indicator of this inability is the number of urban “homeless” during 2016. The “homeless” are being used by cities as a revenue source. Each one is the source of several tens of thousands of dollars in outside revenue for “poverty relief”.

    POTUS Trump blocked Presidential Candidate H. Clinton’s proposed measures (see above). As a direct result, the urban areas that are essential to Democratic Party dominance are visibly failing. Their taxable population is fleeing. Their non-taxable (because unemployable) population is in revolt. POTUS Trump has flatly refused to fund riot repairs and to fund pension and other budget shortfalls in urban areas under the guise of COVID-19 relief.
    This is important. Right now, time is on the side of the Red Counties, so Trump’s best move was to wear out his opposition, Ali’s “rope-a-dope” method. Trump first tried an offensive strategy (he tried to win) with offensive tactics. That mix failed (the Federal courts blocked him, Deep State agents inside his staff simply ignored him, and “fake news” prevented his accumulation of massive popular support). Trump switched to offensive strategy (still wanted to win) but primarily defensive tactics (he defended against Democratic attacks such as the requests for riot funding. He attacked only where the Deep State were very weak, as in the “catch and release” policy, Federal Judge appointments, and defended against relief funding for impending Blue State bankruptcy).
    This ”offensive strategy / defensive tactics” mix inspired the Deep State to mount a desperation attack [1] that failed, and had to be augmented by rather obvious last-minute improvisation (the 2020 Federal Election “irregularities”). The obvious “irregularities” amounted to yet another failed attack, a possibly decisive failure. The resulting loss of Democratic legitimacy made a separate “Red Counties” revolt inevitable.

    This brings us to the present (2020-11-15). While your points are to an extent important, the process described above is a major achievement. Trump out-thought the Democrats enough to win. Example: He did not waste time on ending birthright citizenship, for example, only to lose to the Federal Courts. Instead, he ended “catch and release”, and instead made the moves described above.
    At any rate, I would like to understand what just happened, and what is likely to happen next. IMHO, Trump is in a good position to lead the Red Counties, and is not in any position at all to negotiate with the Deep State should he fail to lead the Red Counties [2]. In this sense, he is in the same position as C.J. Caesar and B. Yeltsin found themselves.

    1] The Deep State, acting through the Democratic Party, changed local laws to permit mail-in voting and eliminate validation methods signature comparisons. The methodology was to seek court rulings and administrative changes by local Deep State agents. Recourse to the State Legislators, who alone could have legally made such changes, appears to have been avoided. In the event, these measures not sufficient to overcome candidate Trump’s lead.

    2] See: https://www.britannica.com/biography/Augusto-Pinochet for a likely course of events should Trump follow Pinochet and reach a negotiated withdrawal from public life in exchange for full immunity. (You may say “Pinochet was a horrible person” but remember that the Left says “Trump is worse than Hitler”, and consists of many factions, any one of which could initiate prosecution of Trump. Something like Pinochet’s experience would be unavoidable.)

    I think Trump got a raw deal from the time he announced his intention to run through to today. The election highlighted just how low the Democrats will go to get what they want. Trouble is, half the population agrees with them and their tactics – anything to win.

    Trump may have woken some people up to how corrupt the Fed Gov is, but that’s not enough to change anything. I hope his election challenges in the courts succeeds and in a second term he can go nuclear on the opposition. I just doubt that’s going to happen. There are too many people in his own administration that are actively working against him and he hired most of them. As a manager, he’s awful.

    Day one he should have put up his own web site to communicate directly with the US population bypassing the MSM. I would have refused all requests for an interview by the so called journalists. Instead, he tweeted on a platform that hates him and subverts him at every opportunity. Did he go after Silicon Valley – no!

    The man is inept in the role as president. Given his New York brash style, I assumed he’d call a spade a spade and attack anyone that annoyed him, but he was too presidential for his own good. As an ex New Yorker myself, I’m embarrassed by how non confrontational he is and was. He’s no street fighter, at least not from where I came from.

    The election points out one glaring problem. Half the country wants one thing and the other half want the opposite. Regardless of who gets elected, for any office, the country has come to the point where it no longer works to make the US a great place to live and work. It’s all about looting the country and grabbing what’s available. It’s like hungry people eating their seed corn with nothing to plant next year.

    The Fed Gov needs to come to a non violent end and let the states decide how to proceed. People should vote with their feet and go live and work where they get treated best. The Fed Gov represents the oppressive monopoly that precludes such experimentation. I voted with my feet 16 years ago and left.

    Half the population DOES NOT agree with the demsheviks. No way in hell Old Joe received 77 million votes, or whatever the latest vote count happens to be, hell, I find it hard to believe that 150 million people voted, even the 72+ million votes ( whatever the number is now) for Trump, seem too much. I find it hard to believe that 150 million people out of a country of 330 million people voted. Think of all the people too young to vote, the people who don’t vote for whatever reason, and the people who were too busy or just didn’t give a damn. 150 million votes? No way, Jose.

    I guess they feel the people won’t question anything anymore and IF Trump can’t turn this thing around, it will either TOTALLY demoralize most of the productive Whites in this nation or TOTALLY amp them up to the nth degree. Given past history of Whitey being screwed and accepting it, I am not looking for a miracle. IF Trump stays, I don’t expect anything drastic either, face it, he had the House and Senate his first two years and didn’t do anything substantial. Maybe we will steadily get back to normal and this is the beginning of something big, who knows? I know Biden and Caramel are a death wish for America, but Trump is not the savior America needs either. It will take a helluva lot more and someone better than The Orange Man, but hey, he is a start in the right direction.

    Jews are always on top and always in charge.

    In charge of what? On top of what?

    What we’re witnessing is The Pyrrhic Victory of Jewish Supremacy Inc.

    They might have been good at infiltration, subversion, insane hatred, radical ingratitude, betrayal, destruction and death. But they’re no good at social management. They don’t even seem all that interested in it. And it shows. They’re simply too dependent on an archaic top-down model that might have worked way back when, but not at a time when civilization is more complex and unpredictable than ever before.

    The effort to establish an authority free of control and sustained by force only increases the uncontrolled exercise of naked power. And that force, continuously applied, destablizes the social institutions that power controls. Especially the economic institutions. Thereby making the management of them impossible to sustain.

    When enough people become aware of this to make a critical mass a culture crisis inevitably breaks out. And that’s the situation we’re in right now.

    JSI is no more invincible than it is infallible. It’s clearly both. And that’s why they’re pulling all the stops. They’re desperate. They’re only way out is to sell the store to China. And that’s pretty much what they’re doing.

    From this perspective Trumpism was, to the hostile elite a protracted and irritating speed bump on the road to ruin, though they thought it was utopia. Hence the Pyrrhic Victory. Nothing quite fails like their success. At this point, they’re no match for China. A country, moreover, that doesn’t strike one as being all that into power-sharing.

    The very idea that there should be one individual that represents 1/3 of the gov’t in a nation of 300+ million people is absurd. The idea that a nation consists of 300+ million is absurd on its own. There are way too may people with way too many opinions on how things should be to have it come down to a this or that decision.

    If there must be gov’t, and I’m not conceding that point, then it must be small enough for the average person to be heard. Even many states are too populous. People should have thousands of options on where to live and work so they can find a place where like minded individuals congregate and set up the local rules.

    The US is ungovernable. It has been so for decades. I predict it won’t last till the next presidential election in its current form. I hope several states, red or blue, secede to give the idea to the rest. It’s way past time for the USA to evaporate and allow more people to get what they want by living where the rules are agreeable to them.

    My own personal thinking, and I could be very wrong and subject to correction, is this. On a very simple level lets assume I am a poor individual (or maybe not) for whatever reason and you are well off. Now one day I hear that I can get a meal, some money and a place to sleep in your backyard tool shed. Out of the kindness of your heart you accommodate me in every way. Soon the word spreads and you have 2 families, 3 families, 4 families. It does not matter who gave me bus fare to get to your house YOU are sustaining me. Soon it becomes a plague ! Finally the mooching and parasitical behaviour becomes so ingrained that it is an accepted practice and further drastic action has to be taken to reverse it. In other words what could have been cured with a word of rebuke now needs draconian measures.

    The question though is WHY your house. Well because you are a sucker. When some of my friends try the same shit down the block they get nothing, get roughed up and flung out of the hood.

    So why do these people flock to the West ? Because we give them housing, food, monthly stipend etc. If all that were cut out and they were deported immediately, if employers or private citizens were heavily fined for hiring illegals this “invasion” would come to an end.

    These people dont flock to Brazil for example or Saudi Arabia because they aint got nothing to get there. The immigration officers in just about any part of LAtin America never ask “how long are you staying? How much money do you have ?” etc. So one can enter the country and disappear. However what will you do to survive ? Live in the street and eat out of the garbage. And if you are caught its a middle ages jail cell with a trial that could take years and bribes in the thousands to get released.

    People dont go to those countries because they got nothing to get except greater hardship that what they were fleeing!

    They come to the west because we are cunts ! And cunts get fucked !

    Look at Germany now ! Hitler this and Hitler that but does anyone think the shit storming the German borders now would have done so back in the day ? Not unless they loved breaking bricks 18 hours a day and eating a bowl of watery soup every 2 days. Poland and Hungary have locked up their borders.

    We can do the same but we wont and so like kids who are given their own way the scum and shit from the rest of the world flock to the place where they get the freebies. Until there is a massive and ruthless crackdown it will only get worse, if that is even now possible. That is the way I see it.

    Yes there are millions of right wing Americans with extensive military training. However:

    1. They mostly want to be left alone. When you have touched a hot stove there is an aversion to repeating the experience. When you get to a certain age and have to face the fact that the meeting with the Maker is just around the corner one feels a sense of loss, loss of youth, loss of experiences and loss of one’s soul in some cases. Sometimes dwelling on what could have been or what should have been can lead to a deep sense of desolation in that we only have THIS life and precious time has been lost and wasted, time you will never get back.
    2. Combat is for the young. Only they have the energy, the stamina and sense of invincibility for the game. This game is one of terrible hardship both mental and physical.
    3. After age 25 one loses the sense that only Kryptonite can destroy you. After age 25 it is difficult to convince people that anything is worth dying for (the easy part) or worth being maimed and or mentally unhinged for. Death is final and all of ones problems, and those of family members solved. Loved ones cry for a few weeks and then you are forgotten. Being disabled is the start of another battle but this time drawing in family members who already have enough on their plate without adding you. Family emotions start at love run pass irritation with a finish line at abandonment.
    4. It is easy to convince an 18 year old that Chang, Pavlov or Mohammed is a vile insect and should be squashed. Its another and with severe mental challenges to convince a person that their fellow countryman is scum that should be flushed away.

    You throwing kids in as some kind of show stopper is without merit. If a family wants to move from LA to Dallas, the kids go along for the ride. Getting them into schools isn’t all that difficult as proper planning takes care of it. Lower taxes, lower housing prices and a general lower cost of living might mean private school, a plus for kids.

    Was never particularly good in chemistry class but a few things stuck. The word “reagent”, a substance which induces a chemical reaction between two other chemicals and combines them into a whole new entity.

    I think you are muddling “reagent” with “catalyst”. E.g. platinum acts as a catalyst in the following circumstance: suppose you have a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen; by itself it is stable. Put a piece of Pt wire into the mixture, however and the Pt will glow red hot, as the H and O combine on its surface. Though the Pt is unchanged, in its presence the reaction between the H and O is very much speeded up.
    This is what a catalyst does. Reagents are merely substances which react with other substances.

    Perhaps the greatest threat to our people’s movement is the whole racial divide, so energetically pushed by the minder- binders and their media minions.

    Yes! “Divide & rule” is one of the most effective tools the ruling class has. Note also that in the present circumstances, it is necessary to treat the whole of society that is not ruling class as one oppressed class. Some so-called communists insist that “One cannot trust the petty-borgeoisie” by which term they mean everyone who is not either ruling class or industrial working class. This is another, less obvious form of divide and rule, but just as damaging as setting Black, White, yellow or brown against each other. The victims of the banksters and their minions and collaborators are many, the banksters, collaborators and their well-paid servants are few. It really is an “Us and Them” situation. Anything that divides Us favours only Them.

    It was a CIA operation. Bob Baer, an ex-CIA agent, explains how it was done in his book.

    https://hangthebankers.com/cia-agent-dismember-yugoslavia/

    We bribed parties and politicians who have enticed hate between the nations. Our ultimate goal was to enslave you!

    WebTribune publishes their interview with former CIA agent Robert Baer during his promotion tour in Quebec for upcoming book “Secrets of the White House” last week.

    Srebrenica, was CIA marketing of the worst kind.

    We all know of Srebrenica, can you say about it?

    Yes! In 1992 I was in Bosnia again, but this time we were supposed to train military units to represent Bosnia, a new state that had just declared independence. Srebrenica is an exaggerated story and unfortunately many people are being manipulated. The number of victims is the same as the number of Serbs and others killed but Srebrenica is political marketing. My boss, who was formerly a US Senator, stressed repeatedly that some kind of scam would go down in Bosnia. A month before the alleged genocide in Srebrenica, he told me that the town would be headline news around the world and ordered us to call the media. When I asked why, he said you’ll see. The new Bosnian army got the order to attack homes and civilians. These were of course citizens of Srebrenica. At the same moment, the Serbs attacked from the other side. Probably someone had paid to incite them!

    Who is to blame for Srebrenica?

    Then who is guilty of genocide in Srebrenica?

    Srebrenica should be blamed on Bosnians, Serbs and Americans – that is us! But in fact everything has been blamed on the Serbs. Unfortunately, many of the victims buried as Muslims were Serbs and other nationalities. A few years ago a friend of mine, a former CIA agent and now at the IMF, said that Srebrenica is the product of agreement between the US government and politicians in Bosnia. The town of Srebrenica was sacrificed to give America a motive to attack the Serbs for their alleged crimes.

    Here are the reasons for the CIA and friends destruction of Yugoslavia.

    Ultimately why do you think Yugoslavia collapsed and why did your government want to do it?

    It is all very clear, the people who incited the war and dictated the terms of the peace now own the companies that exploit various mineral resources and the like! They simply made slaves of you, your people work for nothing and that produce goes to Germany and America…they are the winners! You will eventually have to purchase and import what you have created yourself, and since you have no money, you have to borrow, that’s the whole story with the whole of the Balkans!

    The model of resistance will be similar to what the IRA initiated and maintained against Britain for how many years. You start by going after the small fish and their families, because fear must be instilled. Then you watch how their forces react.

    Small cells using old school communications are very difficult to combat.

    If “My mask protects you and your mask protects me,” (so I heard as grocery store propaganda) then my right to self-defense allows me to force you to wear a mask (i.e., “the Bush doctrine” of pre-emptive self-defense). Every American has an inalienable right to protect themselves by forcing others’ compliance with masking rules, and so people are getting in their training in forcing compliance, as in-service or as continuing ed. Some even volunteer to be enforcers, so no need to talk about the hired and uniformed law enforcers, right?

    So, why wouldn’t they also have mobs and squads of citizen volunteers who go around and “politely ask” their neighbors to turn in their weapons or turn in their neighbors, given it is every American’s inalienable right to pre-emptive (state-sanctioned and state-approved) self-defense?

    “My gun might harm you, and your gun might harm me.” Invert the mask logic: thus, our guns are threats to us both and mandatory for us to relinquish. We need to give them up to trained and approved safety squad neighbors. Trust the science that shows that gun ownership makes a person more likely to cause harm to others or themselves than not owning a gun. Flatten the curve of gun violence today: turn in all weapons to your friendly neighborhood safety squad.

    People will line up for those jobs. Imagine bounties for the safety squad who brings in the most guns or takes down worse offenders. Social approval and a TikTok dance for the stylish or comedic about it. People progammed through trauma and economic ruin into being copies and clones of one another desperately rush with all contemporary heroism to seize the weapons of fascists, for Cause and Profit and Clout. They soak up the violence they trigger in the hectored gun owners, not the professionals. Safety squad branding will even allow for competitive martyrdom.

    “See, we’re right! They wanted to kill us with their guns all along! They were only pretending to be peaceful, but we knew all along they were traitors!” both sides will say. Then neither acts preemptively: they have arrived into the war always already around them.

    Doubtful, whether you have done this all on your lonesome—if you did, Mensa should be contacting you forthwith.

    My posts are solo work. Fact is, they have to be. No present-day organization would tolerate them. See: E. Dutton, _The Genius Famine: Why we need geniuses, why they are dying out, why we must rescue them_, available Amazon.com . Dutton remarks that the English University system, until about 1960, simply let anybody with academic credentials subsist on a low salary without supervision for as long as they wanted to, with local social group prestige dependent on research findings. Today’s organizations keep everybody, no exceptions, under tight management control. The result is that the organization is limited to the intelligence of the managers in any area that interests management. Since managers are limited to an IQ of about 130 (which is rare) by their need to keep within 20 IQ points of their mean IQ 110 middle management workforce (to ensure effective empathy and communications), and since IQ 130 is not genius, there is quite literally no room for genius in contemporary organizations.

    As to Mensa, I was a member of that for a while. My IQ is only in the 140-150 range, which isn’t much but has proven on the whole too damned smart. Still, I’m alive and might live through the next few years, so I suppose the IQ is worth something.

    I’m essentially writing these analyses to organize my own thoughts, and to have flaws pointed out so that I can correct them.

    However, I am a bit envious as it appears that you have sources to which I have no current access.

    You are one of the few interested in sources. Here are some of the works that form a background to the post https://www.unz.com/pescobar/first-comes-a-rolling-civil-war/#comment-4286699

    I’ve learned from experience that the people who run things are not in any sense superhuman (except perhaps in the number of hours they have to work), and usually what they are doing is very simple strategically, although the tactical execution is often very complex. By the same token, human organizations are usually very simple although very difficult (see: Ritti, Levy, Tocher, _The Ropes to Skip and the Ropes to Know_) and the simple strategies in the long run tend to prevail over formal organization and even profitability (see Meyer and Zucker, _ Permanently Failing Organizations _ in paperback, the hardcover 1st printing is now $870 per copy on Amazon).

    The above may seem gloomy, but look back at what the human race has accomplished. There are intervals of history in which the above simply does not hold. These tend to be the intervals during which central authority is distracted (e.g. the industrial revolution during the Napoleonic Wars, when British central authority was distracted and yet badly needed cheap but functional industrial goods) or nonexistent (e.g. new civilizations are invented during the Dark Ages after the old civilization, such as the Bronze Age, fails). As for the present interval, well, they can’t all be gems.

    The particular strategic analysis methodology I used is espoused in Summer’s _On Strategy_, https://www.commentarymagazine.com/articles/eliot-cohen/on-strategy-a-critical-analysis-of-the-vietnam-war-by-harry-g-summers-jr/ .

    For the fall of the cities, see Copley’s _Uncivilization_, https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20061219-uncivilization and Levinson’s _The Box_ https://press.princeton.edu/books/paperback/9780691170817/the-box . Note especially the demise of the London Docks and the urban manufacturing they supported. Containerization destroyed what had been a natural monopoly of cities since at least the early Bronze Age, leaving Western cities politically dominant but without an economic base. See Plunkett’s _Plunkett of Tammany Hall: Some Very Plain Talk on Very Practical Politics_ to get some idea of how big city political machine members think, and have to think to stay in power. It will give you some idea of what they did after their economic base vanished.

    If you want some deep background, look at Hofstadter’s _Gödel, Escher, Bach_. It’s accessible, and will make one immune to any claims of omniscience by authorities. Among other things, it has a nice proof that every system has at least on failure mode. Humans really don’t understand things very wall, even mathematics. I have three engineering degrees and several significant research results, and I have found that systems of real things are even less well understood than mathematics.

    Casual readers please note: No pilpul please. It is intensely boring.

    Conquering Fools- I am in my 70s . I agree that these leftist white suburban females who are college educated are the worst. They live in a fantasy land. Their parents spoiled them. These spoiled snowflakes found suckers who married them and they have college educated radical leftist Communist children.
    I was in the USMC in the 60s and I watched those of my age group go radical. They protested the war simply because there was a draft. Deep down they didn’t give a damn about the poor Vietnamese caught in the fighting. They went on to raise leftist children. The majority are miserable today.

    I came from a rough neighborhood. I still see a friend and he is a radical leftist because he grew up in a household where “Democrats good, Republicans bad”. He drinks heavily, watches the idiot box all his waking day, never reads, lives comfortably in the suburbs just outside NY City, and he and his wife spoiled their children, and some of his female children are radical leftists. There is no common sense. I now live far away from the city.
    There are no fun conversations. This goes on all over. I ask myself every day “where is the common sense”.

    In Spain 1930s the anarchists and Communists were not content on just murdering religious. Over 90% of the 5,700 Catholic priests were torture murdered and part of that was to disembowel them while they were still alive. Some 370 or so nuns were killed. Some were locked in churches and burned to death. Could that happen here? Of course, it could. Every society has an abundance of people that would enjoy exterminating those they hate.

    Warren Carroll wrote a book about the killings in Spain.
    North African Muslims were so devoted to their old Commander Francisco Franco that thousands went to Spain to fight with him. Maybe the Muslims in America may decide to fight the Socialism- Communism that the Democrats want to lay on us. Of course, the Muslim female Congresswomen in Minnesota and Michigan make that seem unlikely but these females are Muslim in name only just like we have in America millions of Catholics who are called Catholic because they were born in Catholic families (CINO).

    Well, anything is possible and I certainly cannot predict the future. However I was trained to :
    1. Consider what is
    2. Consider what is most likely to happen
    3. Plan to deal with those

    The distant possibilities and probabilities are what ifs to be dealt with as the situation arises !?

    Now the struggle of the IRA evolved over decades. I dont know the history but I would say well before WW2 ?? So its almost 100 years old or more . And really, looking at it now (from my limited perspective ) I would say not much has changed. Now mind you the bitterness I imagine is still there and could explode again at any moment. Yet it seems to me that the current crop of those protagonists have run out of steam and are weary. Until a new harvest is gathered I dont think much is going to happen. But again I do not know and could be wrong.

    You see, I may be wrong but I dont see the same happening in the US. I think that for one, unlike the Irish, we have too many races each with different agendas. Any every race has its sub groups with a sub agenda. In a game of cat and mouse who is to be trusted ??

    And two, Americans have gotten accustomed to a life of comfort. I dont know many people who are willing to give up their leisurely lifestyle, much as they may complain and bitch about this, that and everything else, to live a life of hardship as a fugitive, cold, hungry, dispirited on occasion etc.

    Third, who is going to be the charismatic national leader ? He is going to have to be a very smart individual. Who will be the sub-leaders. They will also have to be extremely capable !

    There are just too many pieces to pull together and any such venture is likely to take (like the Irish) a hundred years or more and not be any further ahead.

    History may prove me totally wrong but from what I see right now this is as far as my thinking takes me. At present it is a fantasy.

    My caring, compassionate, concerned kid sister gets all her news and views from boobtoob noose. It is a habit to which she has long been dedicated. Unlike our family’s rural background, she mostly grew up in a first-tier suburb, graduating high-school in the mid 70’s. She has a masters in business administration, is currently working from home as the office complex where she is employed has had several covid cases and is on the precipice of shut-down.

    She does not read anymore and has been a soccer-mom grandma for a couple of years now. Caring and doting. Unlike my younger brother and myself, having grown up in part or mostly in a tiny rural town, she is a burbie baby–or close to that and when it comes to anything beyond micro-politix (D & R) is totally lacking in common sense. She has no conception whatsoever of the Matrix and the mind-control system. Her cultural overview is much of the Pollyanna perspective. Some doubts are developing, but old habits are hard to overcome.

    Younger generations of males in our society have become pussified and marginalized. Add to that the neuroses implicit with having suffered neonatal violent removal of their man-hoods; they are imbued with a little recognized, subconscious fear-factor. They are essentially unable to be physical. Most work these days has little or no bodily engagement. Life lacks in adventure and excitement, beyond the enervating ennui of the rat-race. More than half the population is sub-urban. Purport of that is that most every household is a world unto itself. No sense of neighborhood, of community, of sharing common bonding mechanisms.

    My conclusion is that contemporary American society is fatally flawed, in that all the energy, brains and power has been sucked into megalopolitan hive-life. In the 1970’s I published a monthly newspaper called Common Sense. In ’79 I gave it up after 56 editions. Much of the reasoning behind that decision was that even in rural America, common sense was fast fading away into the realm of industrialized agriculture/agribiz where actual farmers no longer existed in all but tiny pockets, while land-holdings greatly increased in size and “efficiency”, as their owners/managers ceased being farmers, but now were comprised of heavy equipment operators and chemical warfare applicators.

    The countryside has lost virtually all of the potential leaders who had grown up on farms and in small towns. They went to get their edjumacasion and then off for the good jobs in megalo-urbia and their spoiled, cozened offspring grew up into gamesters. What a mess. Add in ghettoized “whitey” hating blacks and masses of culturally undigestible immigrants and you have a recipe for disaster. The Trumpean MAGA movement is a partly conscious reaction to this cultural dissolution. But because of the deliberate dumbing-down of Americans, this movement is inchoate and bewildered, lashing out at wrongly perceived “enemies”, while the major perpetrators laugh all the way to their major investment banks.

    America will not, cannot become great again without some form of mass cultural awakening developing by some currently unpredictable catalytic energizer. At this point, perhaps our only hopes are in the hands of poets, visionaries and seers.

    Anon: Thank you so much for your informative, thoughtful response. Wish I could check out those recommended books, but as I just emerged from home confinement and am now awaiting for SS to kick back in; my ability to do so is more than attenuated. Excellent take on the genius famine. Never had an IQ test through college years, but did a somewhat informal one over the net several years back and the upper 140’s registry was as per my prior personal analysis.

    Very impressed by your take on commercial and other organizations, their management types and I see that as quite extendable to some of the professions, even and particularly to the run of school teachers and administrators. The latter, as per my anecdotal experience, are larded with jock-coaches. A first cousin in Montana is such an individual. Big Trumpensteiner. Politically, he is unstudied and essentially reactive, emotionally as well as intellectually. A number of phobias, but a staunch family man as per his sons, though not so with the four ex-wives and a GF he should have kept. (just a brief profile here, but anecdotal evidence is massively decried by the scientistic, rationalist, materialists.)

    You may wish to check out my take on the current status of the American cultural matrix in my #262 response to “Lost American”. Perhaps you have not seen my overal analysis of political consciousness in this society. Four stages: (1) Micropolitics. These folks are minimally informed and tend to still believe in the two-party duopoly. Apparently there are close to 150M of them acrosss the fruited plain. (2) Macropolitics. Includes college/university educated types for the most part–primarily in the oxymoronically described political “science”. They are accompanied by their compeers in sociology, anthropology and psychology. Their points of view are generally determined by their edjumacasional backgrounds. (3) Level three brings us to the zone of megapolitics. These folks include masses of attorneys and some journalists along with some proportion of historians. They get a big picture, but not THE big one. Their approach to political reality is somewhat wholistic, but they generally suffer from cognitive dissonance and do not trust their own intuition and instincts. In general, they defer to the “authorities” and “experts” and most of them consider themselves as experts, tending to look down on opinions which are not mainstream and “off message”. (4). Metapolitics is one whole nother realm. Within this context, a wholistic, international, historical process is in play. For the most part, those with these skills and development tend to be part of the machine–think higher minions like Heinrich Kissinger and the late Zbigniew Brzesinski. Metapolitics is a rarified dimension, working from an informed overview consisting of data from a plethora of at least partially digested disciplines.

    Military strategic analysis. It was amusing to check out the blurb on Col. Summers’ book, particularly relative to the Vietnam conflict. In the autumn of ’65 I composed a leditor to my University student newspaper. My strategic take was simple: Establish an American staffed “death zone” from the South China Sea to the Mekong river. Bulldozers, landmines, razor wire imposing a mile-deep barrier all along that difficult, mountainous jungle terrain. Fortified encampments, mainly staffed by Marines backing up the entire line of no passage. The good colonel came to the same basic conclusion some number of years later. Any open-minded and thoughtful graduate of a military academy could have come up with the same concept. Obvious to a strategic thinker.

    Having come to the firm conclusion that we are spirits living a material lifetime at the very perigee of Kali Yuga, reincarnation seems totally probable to me. If you happen to have viewed George C. Scott in the roll of Patton in the movie by that title, the general espoused numerous lifetimes in a role similar to his command of the Third Army. This is one lifetime for which I hold some pride in not having been responsible for the deaths of others. My personal military library contains upwards of 400 volumes, a fair to middling private, civilian collection.

    Currently, creative exercises are far more fascinating than past life experiences. Presently, I am on the verge of public release of a graphically symbol based transliteration of the totally abstract Latin/English alphabet we use every day. It is both pictographic and hieroglyphic and is based primarily on natural formulations, such as the letter “B” which appears as a stylized bear paw. Our contemporary post-industrial, highly urbanized culture is enmeshed in abstractions, beginning with the alphabet and also featuring the clock, the calendar, money and other abstract constructions which tend to smother and freeze-out connexion with the natural environment and cosmic consciousness (see Bucke’s 1906 book by that title).

    This Unz site has drawn unto itself a fascinating coterie of original thinkers and analysts from all across the planet. Informally, it fills the role of a committee of correspondence. Until further acknowledgement, the two of us can employ this medium to remain in contact.

    It’s true, that Americans are largely divided and distracted, and still fat and happy. Although that is rapidly changing. And the change will become even more profound if Joe and Kamala get in the White House.

    Normal people with families and much to lose, who respect the rule of law are very slow to act, it is true. But that is prudence, not necessarily cowardice. It is human nature to exhaust every means available before reverting to violence.

    It is also a common mistake to assume the people who are attempting to wrest control are omniscient and all powerful, even with their many tech toys. Which certainly include AI robots etc…

    People who cherish their freedom and wish to live it and pass it on to their children are capable of much more hardship and suffering, than the “elites”.

    Agreed. I’ll monitor your comments, you might find it difficult to monitor mine. We’re coming on a time when informal friendships will become much more important as formal structures weaken. As an example of formal structures weakening, consider the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruling that observers kept too far away to observe is legal because the State law did not specify a specific distance in feet is a bit worrying. It’s like the couplet from the Miller’s Tale:

    On hearing which the miller robbed him more
    a hundred times than he had robbed before;
    for up till then he’d only robbed politely,

    https://www.huffpost.com/entry/what-is-pilpul-and-why-on_b_507522?

    Ordinarily in unz.com pilpul starts out with an attempt to change the subject, usually masked by a sharp attack on personal character. The new subject is always a value question — not “did x happen” but “what right has a person like you to discuss x?”

    A secondary method is to reply with irrelevancies, hoping to draw a reply that will be answered by other irrelevancies, and at the end of the chain the pilpul practitioner simply restates his original point as if it were an obvious truth. This method relies on the inability of discussing irrelevancies to disprove the original point, and on the reader’s perception that a long argument followed by a restatement with no further argument is proof of the restatement — when it is actually proof the I other party has given up in disgust.

    Typically, people who have been trained in pilpul are unable to think in any other way. Among other things, this makes them reasonable tacticians, rather obvious operational level thinkers, and very poor strategists.

    We’ve even had a few people try to use threats of force and intimidation, an intrusion of the “cancel culture”. Remember, almost anybody can post here, using any method of dispute, so cave canem.

    As I observed in an earlier thread, the DNC bosses decided that a primary election wasn’t needed, nor was a convention, then finally proceeded under the assumption that a national election wasn’t necessary. All they needed was a total lockstep process of media gaslighting which would be accepted by a large majority of TV mesmerized former citizens.

    That is what we apparently have now.

    Great analysis and comment and to an equally thoughtful and intelligent Lost American. All that you say is true. Logic has flown and intelligence is now measured by what the “educated” can regurgitate from a text book. THINKING is dead, buried and decayed !

    True story. Back in the late 80’s I bought a heavily wooded 25 acre in the country for a home I planned to build. Attending a party years later I was asked where I lived and when I replied my questioner boasted about the plot he had bought just down the road from where I was…….at multiple times the local price and for a fraction of the acreage. “I got a GREAT deal” he blathered, loud enough to draw an audience to listen to his awesome business acumen and conquest and superiority over ” those stupid hicks”

    I even knew the vendor personally and we had a good laugh at the “educated idiots” from the City. The fellow had divided up a 100 acre partially treed parcel into 1 acre estate lots and put an ad in the city paper. When the city folks drove out to meet him, they found a “old country bumpkin”, hair uncombed, with a week old stubble, dressed in worn green pants held up over a pot belly with suspenders, beat up work boots unlaced and driving an old 1970 Ford Pickup that was falling apart with the box filled with old wood, a spare wheel, leaves and other assorted trash. He chuckled as he told me he took them on a roundabout route over rough and gravel surfaced country roads forcing them to follow in their expensive cars ,at high speed, his storm of dust and pebbles, through a maze of twists, potholes and overhanging tree branches.

    Well, he told them, he was only inviting bids at this time and was in trouble with his wife as she did not want to sell. After 50 years of bliss they were quarrelling all the time. He himself was even more unsure and reluctant day by day but if they submitted their offers (and he told them he did not care one way or the other as the whole thing was becoming a hassle) he could possibly convince the old lady it was worth it. Result #1 every lot sold out. Result #2, my conversation with the smarty pants at the party revealed he paid $200K for a one acre lot that a local would not have paid $30,ooo for.

    One Saturday I met Farmer Billy Bob at the rural trash bin and ribbed him about my wine and cheese party conversation. “Dem boys got a good deal” he said rather thoughtfully ! “Say , do you want a coffee” he asked me “Mother also made some apple pie!” and we later settled down on his porch for a hilarious discussion mocking the Harvard and Wharton city slickers he had fleeced. As for getting a good deal about 10 years later the market took a nose dive and a similar 1 acre lot could be had for $7,900.

    Score: Country bumpkin 10, University Grads 0. The disparity in basic intelligence is much worse now.

    I see though that Showmethereal thanked you. This comes as a shock to me.

    It looks like you may even be on the verge of convincing and converting Showmethereal whose comments and thoughts have the consistency of that old fashioned, salty, watery and devoid of nutrition dog food soup in a can from back in the old days called……. Alphabet Soup.

    destroy any and all NGO-s, by law. Because they are so called “civil society” and their job is to work on “participative democracy”.

    Good advice. This push for participatory democracy has been used here for a very long time to sideline constitutional rule by holding up the “will of the people”. The founding generation was largely opposed to democracy as a system of governance to judging by the terms used to describe it: “King Numbers” and “The Tyranny of the Majority”.

    Democracy is desirable to those who want to rule over a populace, since it is such an easily manipulated form of governance. Simply by claiming that a majority of the populace wants to be ruled, all control over government can be sidestepped.

    Thinking that voting every few years is a way of controlling the government that rules people is delusional.

    “Cave Canem” indeed. Recalling the winter of ’61-62, walking past the Latin classroom to the German class I was taking across the hallway and that sign beckoned me. Had befriended two of the sophomore members of my debate team, as their intellectual interests seemed compatible. Both of them did Latin, so I asked. No, it had nothing to do with being in a grotto. Got me interested in Latin, but what to do, as my senior year was upon me. As someone who acknowledges the reality of a succession of lifetimes, an understanding developed that my mind wanted to think in Latin–even though I am unstudied therewith. Many lifetimes in Italy.

    Something one FEELS. Sometimes our intuition (or whatever superconscious elements persist) tends to supersede the intellect. Fine by me nowadays, but old habits, well ingrained within this Matrix, take time to overcome. So being thankful that at age 76 there remain possibilities for growth (as in Knut Hamsun’s ‘Growth of the Soil’ and Thomas Moore’s ‘Care of the Soul’.) “Wer im Lehrnen stille steht, wie ein Krebs der ruckwarts geht”. -Schiller, Heine or perhaps Goethe: Whoever stands still in learning goes backwards like the crab. Minnesota’s 3rd Nobelist in literature, Bob Dylan, channeled a more apposite to this age formulation: “He not busy being born is busy dying”. WHOOF.

    Thanks for taking the time to cue me in on pilpul. Term has been popping up a bunch lately. Ashkenazi takeover from the Sephardim. Interesting. Those two assemblies differ broadly via my own anecdotal experiences. Years ago I purchased and read Arthur Koestler’s ‘The 13th Tribe”. An awakening. More recently, delving into the Khazaria.com website, the insights broadened. Curious the workings of congruence. Yesterday, once again I experienced a debate with my Grouchy Marxist friend. He had dug up a site calling itself “The Conversation” and directed me to a take by one professor Butter, instructing on American culture at the U. of Tubingen in Germany. We have long clashed over “conspiracy theories”. Logging into the site I encountered their come-on: “Experts have never been more important. Help us raise up their voices. Donate Now”. WHEW!

    Herr professor Michael Butter decried “Conspiracy Theories that the CIA invented the term ,conspiracy theories”. He went on to note that the term was popularized in the leftoid academicist world by none other than Karl Popper–the “expert” who sold the made -man, little Georgie of the $orrsow$, on his “Open Society” concept. The rabbit hole goes deeper…

    Referencing another “expert”, Butter “doubted that his killer, Lee Harvey Oswald, acted alone”. Okay, so now Butter accepts the CIA’s official conspiracy theory that was sold to their kept journalists after the American public went all cynical over the Warren Coverup Commission’s “Magic bullet theory”.
    Without specifically naming the individual, Butter quotes a CIA spokesbeing: “…falsely alleging that Lee Harvey Oswald worked for us”. To my interlocutor, I pointed out that LHO, a former Marine who helped guard the U-2’s at a base in Japan, was somehow allowed into the USSR during the peak of the Cold War and then married a Russian woman and then, magically, was allowed back into the U$, baggage and all. Seemed to me like someone/s greased the skids a bit for all of this to happen.

    The second CIAgent quote was hilarious, should you enjoy somewhat mordant humor: “Conspiracy Theorists started to target social and political elites.” Aha! Stomping on the gouty big-toe.

    So I did a brief search as to the identity of the good professor, with whom my anti-conspiracy-theory Grouchy Marxist friend appeared to be so enamored. It turns out that Butter was one of seven THOUSAND experts who received grants by the European Research Council, a wholly owned subsidiary of the E.U. Oooh! Here we have a non-democratic administrative bureaucracy, accountable only to the “usual suspects” in highest finance and not at all to the people of Europe. Seven thousand of these minor minions spewing out barf and garbage all dressed up in academicist credentialism and being inflicted on the bewildered denizens of a fast fading Europe.

    Cutting back to the chase and tying it back together, my friend reacted in a state of emotional hysteria to my critique of his critiquer. He has done this before. No direct point by point disputation of my researches and positions. Pilpul for sure. Though of Norwegian ancestry, during and after his Trotskyite period, he lived in Manhattan and worked as a contract copy-editor. Dutifully punctilious in following the Chicago Book of Style. During that 20 years in the Hub, he was immersed in the company of Talmudist casuists and does not seem to have recovered after 20 years living in an extremely rural setting, complete with massive garden, bird-feeders and generally peaceful surrounds.

    Rather unusually, yours was not the solitary response to my discursive adventure. It would appear that perhaps a false dawn of a developing committee of correspondence has manifested. So your comment regarding informal friendships appears to be in the budding state. Thanks again.

    Amusing anecdote about the ‘country bumpkin’ —all suitably attired for the occasion—and the Harvard/Wharton slickers cozening him out of an entire acre of get-you-wine rural real estate for a not inestimable sum. Thanks for that.

    Congruence here. Couple days back my brother made me a rare phone call. Along the line he informed me that a man who cannot access my current address or phone number expressed interest in purchasing my small acreage and decrepit house. Some 1–12 years back his younger brother, out deer-hunting that day whilst I was digging out a site for a greenhouse (yet to be built) and stated that he wanted to buy my land. Recently, he had bought out the widow-lady who owned the 80 acres immediately to my north. The elder brother owns 160 acres to my immediate west and yet another brother possesses the 160 immediately south of that one. Though only the 3rd brother actually lives in the area, they are very greedy about hunting property and want to completely conjoin their holdings.

    Having no disposition whatsoforever to sell off my place, I mused for a bit, considered the time I had spent in hauling in building- stones from many miles around; the countless hours invested in digging up three large gardens with my #2 spade, along with several smaller beds and various other landscaping projects and came up with a most reasonable labor-time equation of $150,000. He coughed a couple times, cleared his throat, asked me to keep him in mind and toted his scoped rifle back towards the woods. At the time, the county assessor had valued the place at about $22K.

    I’m fairly certain the brothers conferred over the situation and as for over 4 years I’ve been unavoidably detained from living at my now collapsing 1915-model homestead-era residence, they likely calculated it would be an apt time to strike.

    As I’ve no immediate descendants and as my collateral descendants are thoroughly suburbanized, I’ve been contemplating deeding the place over into a land-trust dedicated to the creation of an organic cemetery—unheard of to now in my neck of the woods, but a third alternative to the contemporary cremation fad and Jessica Mitford’s take on the undertaker racket: “The American Way of Death”. If this does ensue, I’m pretty well assured of getting a prime location, enshrouded in several feet of peat taken from the pond I’ve been hand-digging since 1975, that peat being topped with maybe a foot of topsoil and the whole surmounted by an apple tree. There’s a wonderful legend about the Roger Williams apple tree and Johnny Appleseed’s adventures. It should not be that difficult to research.

    Should you consider it of possible avail, I welcome you to a possible budding of a committee of correspondence right here on UR. We certainly could employ the services of a dedicated trickster. Just mind that you keep that trickster stuff reasonably low-key.

    Look at how easily Americans get into a frenzy over “Iran, Iran, Iran!!” or “Russia, Russia, Russia!!!” This entire 2020 “democratic selections” will NOT end pretty. There are racial, economic AND political dimensions that even Old Rome didn’t have. But New Rome (USA)?? Good fcuking luck navigating that minefield.

    I feel absolutely no remorse for US sheep voters since they don’t seem to have any desire to seriously organize & vote a viable 3rd party into power in order to get both establish parties out of power once & for all. The American voter couldn’t even do that simple task. Ross Perot showed there was a strong desire to move away from the Big 2 corporate parties. But then that fizzled out for some strange reason.

    And considering the sh!t that happened in the American voter’s name to: Iraq, Iran (1953 coup & ongoing TREACHERY), Libya, Syria (arming, training & funding ISIS/Daesh/Al Nusra/AQ terrorists), Yugoslavia, Bolivia (last year’s coup against Evo Morales), Chile (Allende coup), VENEZUELA (nough said), Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Ukraine (illegal Maidan coup), Cambodia/Laos/Vietnam (carpet bombing with agent orange), Congo (overthrowing & assassinating Patrice Lumumba which set Africa back for DECADES since Congo is still fcuked up TODAY!), Ghana (coup against Kwame Nkruma who was the most powerful proponent of PanAfricanism in the world & who wouldv’e TRANSFORMED Africa with Lumumba overnight) etc.

    So, I don’t give a flying fcuk about the naive American voter’s plight right now. I simply don’t care!
    Um, did I miss any countries above? 🤔👀

    And then these same naive exceptional sheep idiots have the gall to say, “But WHY is Africa so backwards? Africans CAN’T build ANYthing without the white man. Africans are dumb! Blah blah blah.” Well, with Congo’s vast resources & people like Lumumba/Nkruma/Julius Nyere/Sankara et al providing principled leadership & VISION, the entire continent would be at the level of Singapore/Malaysia/South Korea today.

The IRA wanted the whole island to be Ireland. They did not want a divided country. I think they were outnumbered by those who were sick of fighting the Brits and I forget what they were called).
    This followed from the Easter Sunday Rising in 1916. The Brits blew it when they publicly hung many of the leaders of the Uprising. Until the hanging of many of the rebels, the local Irish were mad at the rebels attacking the Brits because it led to devastation in their areas.

    There’s nothing comparable to the famine in U.S. history which makes all comparisons with Ireland meaningless. Without the famine it’s likely that Ireland would have ended up as another ‘Quebec’. The anger that led to creation of the IRA, and all that followed, just wouldn’t be there.
