Has anyone seen anywhere in the mainstream media a serious discussion of Israel’s possible role in the Beirut bombing? I am not suggesting an evidence-free indictment of Israel but rather just a review of Israel’s possible motive and a consideration of its capability to carry out such an attack without having to directly do it itself with one of its bombs or missiles. Given the Jewish state’s unrelenting hostility towards Hezbollah and its repeated violations of Lebanese territory and airspace, it would seem to me that it would at least merit a sentence or two in the New York Times or Washington Post.

Or how about the Jeffrey Epstein case, another one involving Israel? There is considerable evidence to suggest that Epstein just might have been using underage girls as sex bait for powerful men so they could be blackmailed into cooperating with Mossad. It might have meant having a Bill Clinton as a presidential spouse if voting had gone the other way in 2016 and Bill would have had to be answerable to Benjamin Netanyahu. I haven’t seen anything about that in the newspapers of record or on FOX, MSNBC, CBS or CNN.

Or to look at another manifestation of mainstream media mendacity, how about the reporting on the disturbances that have been taking place all around the United States? Recent major riots in Portland and Chicago were frequently ignored in the mainstream media or were described as “peaceful protests” in support of “racial justice,” contradicting what one could see with one’s own eyes where video was available. The looting, burning, beatings and vandalizing in Oregon over more than eighty days continues nearly nightly with police now withdrawing from Portland after the local district attorney declared that he would avoid prosecuting rioters.

In Chicago the looting that centered on the high-end Miracle Mile Michigan Avenue shopping area was so bad that that part of the city had to be closed off by raising the city’s bridges. Twelve policemen were injured and more than a hundred looters were arrested. U-Haul trucks were even brought in by the rioters and stolen cars were used to smash open shop windows. It was the second major trashing of the area in the past three months.

Illinois Retail Merchants Association president Rob Karr released a statement on the following day which included: “There’s a limit to how many times retailers are willing to be kicked. It will be difficult after retailers who have invested millions in reopening to have to do it again. There has to be a lot of confidence that they can be protected and, so far, that confidence is lacking.”

Chicago’s flagship Macy’s outlet on the avenue has already indicated that it is considering closing due to the shoplifting, looting and general lack of security. In short, many American cities are no longer able to make even an effort to protect the persons and property of their citizens and taxpayers. Was the Chicago story important enough to report by the New York Times? Yes, but only late in the day on a back page.

Chicago is reportedly responding to the crisis by creating a special task force on looting, but the follow-up coverage in the national media was predictably pretty toothless. On the day after Michigan Avenue was laid waste, Black Lives Matter (BLM) held a rally outside the police station where some of the arrested rioters were being held. Fox News alone among national media covered the story, reporting how one BLM organizer Ariel Atkins described the estimated $60 million dollars-worth of looting as really just “reparations.” She said “I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats…That is reparations. Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.” Presumably the rioters, who did not on this occasion loot supermarkets for food and instead chose to steal luxury items will be able to eat their Gucci loafers.

In a similar vein, the New York Times did have something to say about businesses shutting down or leaving Manhattan. A long article entitled “Retail Chains Abandon Manhattan: ‘It’s Unsustainable’” described how many restaurants and shops, including major chains and department stores, are closing due to unaffordable high rents that can no longer be paid due to a lack of tourists and office workers’ business as a result of the pandemonium. The article does not mention a lack of security due to the city government’s permissive attitude towards demonstrations that sometimes turn violent, a curious omission as friends of mine who live in Manhattan have observed the results of random looting and arson in many parts of the city, leading to boarded-up shops and sharply diminishing retail activity. Some long-time residents describe it as a “return to the ‘70s” when the city became unlivable for many.

America’s newspaper of record the Washington Post promotes its product with a phrase “Democracy dies in darkness.” In reality, the darkness is created by the media itself, which no longer reports what is taking place in an objective fashion. What does appear in the papers, online and on television and radio, no matter what the political orientation, is a product that is engineered to send a certain message. That message is itself disinformation, not substantially different than what takes place in the controlled media put out by so-called totalitarian regimes. In fact, news sources like Russia Today are likely to be much more reliable than CNN or FOX on many issues.

Opinion polls suggest that the American public has largely figured things out and reveal that few trust the media to do its job in an objective fashion. In that light, articles like the recent Politico piece have appeared that have questioned how it can be that the Trump White House is optimistic over the prospects for the November election when opinion polls suggest a large margin of victory for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. If journalists were doing their jobs and were actually getting out on the streets and talking to people, they would discover that people are really worried about the future of the country and what it all will mean for their children and grandchildren. And many of them blame the unrest on the Democratic Party coddling of radical groups that are actively fomenting ethnic and racial divisions for political gain, not on the Republicans. Trump’s playing on those fears might well have a great impact when it comes time to vote. Someone who responded to an opinion poll the week before saying he or she would vote for a safe choice Biden might well go into the voters’ booth and instead pull the lever for Trump.

  1. There are there are “disturbances,” rioting, looting, etc., EVERY summer in the US. Bet you didn’t know that. It IS being reported this summer. Because it’s in their interest this summer.

    So you see I agree with your conclusion, but not with your analysis. What they are not reporting is strikes, united working class actions, all across the country.

    They don’t want to report the strikes, and neither do you.

    Hmm. Ever hear of the term “limited hangout.” You ought to. It applies to you.

  2. One thing that is definitely Not Happening is the psychopaths in both parties, the media, the medical mafia, Wall Street, and corporations taking responsibility for their crime spree and fraud.

    Now the medical community has been fully exposed to be less legitimate than crack dealers, because at least crack dealers are not pretending to cure people like the medical mafia is all based on blatant scientific fraud!

    Now that these evil fraudulent psychopaths have totally destroyed the lives of hundreds of millions locking the country down resulting in people losing their businesses, jobs, homes, and apartments let Nuremburg 2 trials begin!

    People who read the Unz Review know “Jews”/Zionists are largely in control of MSM, either as major owners or as lieutenants. They write the manufactured narrative. They wrote the manufactured narrative of the War on Terror (for Israel and Petrodollar hegemony), as well. But Bezos, a non-Jew, owns the Washington Post. He and people like him are more concerned with maintaining the Dollar as reserve currency in order to facilitate the continued sell-out of Americans for cheap foreign manufactured goods, technology sells to China, and their own personal enrichment.

    “The theory that refuses to die is that the US, as the country with “the” global reserve currency, “must have” a large trade deficit with the rest of the world.”
    https://www.sgtreport.com/2019/07/and-the-us-dollars-status-as-global-reserve-currency/

    In both cases, the”beef” with Trump is that he’s rocking the boat — both in terms of his criticism of the Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama wars for Israel and the Petrodollar, and in terms of the America First noises he’s made. While he’s proven to be a fairly reliable Zionist stooge (although he hasn’t started any new wars in the Mideast, and been more of a placeholder), he’s edging a little too close to America First (with his domestic rhetoric and some of his policies) for comfort.

    He’s enough of a question mark that the Paranoid Ones would rather pull go full Zoglodyte on him than risk their comfortable little corrupt status quo.

  5. Thanks Phil for pointing out these prime examples of Media being MIA. But the question remains, is there anything, new to the media’s role in reporting, misreporting or non-reporting the serious news stories of the day.

    The MSM (Main Stream Media) and even a good part of the Alternative Media has been AWOL as a protector of the rights of the public really for decades. The problem lies with our self created media system. We have Freedom of the Press only for those that can afford to buy their own press, print or electronic. The MSM has been accurately shown to be controlled by a few consolidated Zio- owned Media conglomerates. Thus their has never been any serious reporting on Israel – Palestine conflict, as it is not allowed and most critical thinkers have to seek real news tidbits from the biased but less censored Israeli press. Israel has govt censors, but we have Owner self-censorship which now extends to many other of domestic and international politics.

    The American public is now reaping what it has sowed. It’s near total apathy and misplaced faith in a very outdated electoral system which has slowly winded down its usefulness to the American public in raising real leaders and statesmen who are willing to defend our Bill of Rights and national independence is the real culprit.

    The dumbed down and distracted public mind set in America is leading the country down a deep chasm where it looks increasingly impossible to climb out of. Surely this is all leading to a slow societal self-destruction.

    As pointed out by Phil, the MSM failure to call a spade a spade on most key issues from the Bombing of Beirut to the Portland civil insurrection, are just recent examples of a press whose job has become more psy-ops and naked propaganda than providing any informed and objective news reporting and defense of the general public from the political malevolent forces taking over our country and world.

    I think you finally hit it on the head. For 4 years the only agenda has been “get Trump”. Or I should say the only day the MSM LOVED Trump in unison was the day he illegally bombed Syria over the fake chemical weapons attack on April 5th, 2017. That day every editorial page in the country said silly things like he’s “Presidential” and ” a real leader”. As if they take their marching orders from the same Soros News Agency, approved copy for the unwashed masses. See the problem? That’s the day I said “Whoa, we really got a problem”. The problem was the MSM finally thought they got some control over Trump, or should I say the CIA finally thought it got some control over Trump. Because that’s what it really is: Our true masters, not some silly guy who thinks the “President” is actually a president, and not the ” General Asset Manager, US division” for the NWO.

    @Roderick Spode

    “The actual winner of the 2016 election was also clearly compromised by the Epstein operation.”

    I highly doubt it. Little girls wouldn’t be Trump’s style. He likes flashy women, tall, arm candy.

    Clinton? Oh, yeah, he’d be in there. He’s sleazier.

  8. SafeNow says:

    “…the American public has largely figured things out…”

    A poll about a week ago found that the average American thinks 9% of the population has died from Covid. (= about 30 million people) A few weeks ago a poll found that (by a narrow margin) Americans think Trump suffers from cognitive impairment to a greater degree than Biden. These are not exactly arcane issues, and the degree of ignorance is astonishing. Brainwashing has succeeded. This is why ‘la asserts that the “demonstrators“ are mothers and veterans; and that Biden will cure Covid; she believes that, with the assistance of the media, she can sell these.

  9. An interesting point about 2020 NYC starting to resemble the 70s. I’ve talked to several people who actually say they miss it compared to the “cleaner, safer” NYC since then. All I remember is garbage, crime, and “malaise.”

  10. @Chris Moore

    “continued sell-out of Americans for cheap foreign manufactured goods, technology sells to China, and their own personal enrichment.”

    The day will come in the not too distant future when the Chinese citizen will, just as Japan have, enjoy a superior standard of living when compared to that of the American worker. This is because they will manufacture stuff while American’s job will be to retail that stuff to the American retail worker.

    Now, I don’t know why it is the case that the person who owns the machines and possesses and exercises the technical mastery to operate them should come out ahead, but history just seems to show this to be the way things work.

    Anyone have an explanation?

    The academic economists who have foisted off the notion that all links in the great circular chain of production/consumption are equal have sold us a bill of goods.

  11. This disgusting thing has been the reticence regarding the lawlessness in US cities on the part of American leaders, save Trump. No balls, they all want the black vote. Period. To hell with the rest of us. Trump betrayed by his own cabinet and military “leadership”.

    If Trump loses the election, watch for his version of the Samson Option.

  13. Portland Oregon BLM requested that whites step aside in the George Floyd murder protests. I seriously wonder how it is that the approximately 95% whit Portland population finds that the only thing worthy of protesting in America, or white people in other cities. I have been to my share of protests and none of them ever accomplished anything so I do not recommend protests as a way to change policy from my own experience. People often infiltrate protests for nefarious reasons and often to incite violence to seize the narrative back, because if the protesters are viewed as violent radicals they will not have sympathy and will not get their message through. They rarely work, particularly with the militarized police state, I could not in good faith urge people to risk their lives. The days of the original Boston Tea Party are long gone.

    Just raising hell without a clear direction or path forward is not a good idea. Is the governmemt corrupt? Yes. Will protesters convince the government or police to change for the better? I do not think so. In fact, the government has used protests as a reason to illegally revoke rights over the past 100 years. So especially for that reason, I do not encourgae people to go to protests after seeing that and never gaining anything else from the protests. Not because oppose protesting but because I oppose wasting my time.

    What’s scary is if the news doesn’t report or discuss it, then it is not even the news, at least for most Americans.

    If a black man overdoses while resisting arrest, the whole world knows about and it’s the biggest problem.

    But during the media-provoked riots, many more people have been injured/killed, along with massive property damage. Yet, many will either feel this is a small problem or be completely unaware, as a result of the blackout or “greyout” from the MSM and Big Tech. (I’m using “greyout” to refer to news outlets minimizing the chaos.)

    The biggest way that our media oligarchs distort reality is by what they choose to spotlight and what they choose to hide.

  23. Of course!! The democratic party is a vast criminal organization. It has been for years. Note how its politicians never apologize for anything and never break ranks, like so many of the weak kneed politicians of the Republican party do. It’s evident, that the Republican party is run by loafers and grifters, pretenders really, whose main job seems to be to create the illusion that the U.S. actually has a representative democracy and not a one party state, entirely run by the far left in tandem with major corporations. The president, is between a rock and a hard place. It’s terrible, because he actually has the desire to change the country for the better and make it a place with opportunity for all Americans. He is indeed a grass roots nationalist president, fighting alone with his millions of supporters against an entrenched and corrupt web of traitors.

    And that’s just the Democrats! I’m sure the republicans are just as bad if not worse, but it seems harder to find information on. Here’s another list: Politicians Who Hold Dual US/Israeli Citizenship

    Here’s an explanation of how this used to not be allowed, then the law was changed, and also points out many big-name dual citizenship holders in the Bush and Clinton administrations: http://www.viewzone.com/dualcitizen.html

    Why is this allowed? It is not allowed for regular US citizens to have dual citizenship, is it? (Actually, Italians who can prove their lineage, can become Italian citizens, for example.)

    I think this type of thing is allowed because “Israel first” Zionists essentially own our government, which is because the Rothschilds own the central banking system and have money creation powers and they promote Zionism. So you play by their rules, or you don’t get big money access. This is why most industry monopolies are headed by Zionists. It’s not a random chance thing that the tops of most all industries are super gung-ho about Israel. This is also why they get the most aid, and why they have the biggest lobbying groups.

    And to be clear, I’m not talking about Jews, half of whom reject zionism. I’m talking about the ideological belief system, that says the Israeli government deserves to own Mt. Zion, aka that Palestine needs to be removed and regional security for Israel needs to be ensured in the middle east. Obama is a Zionist, Biden is a Zionist. Bush is a Zionist. So is Hillary, and Trump, as their AIPAC speeches showed quite clearly.

    These big bankers need to stop being able to pull everyone’s strings, but that won’t stop until people realize their money creation abilities are based on legal narratives that come from false hopes and the false appearance of authority. The government should be able to create its own money, not borrow from a private bank in a debt-based money creation system where there will always, mathematically, be more debt owed than money exists, which gives them power over the government because they are the debt collectors.

    The whole thing is an absurd farce to anyone who sees the truth of it.

    Milton Friedman.

    The man said increase stockholder profit and the devil take the hindmost. From that buzzard on, the nation’s been a wreck. He’s also complicit in destroying Chile. Sort of a dry run for the rest of the world.

    During the Reagan years, Friedman’s dictum became holy writ. The economy changed. Ship work out, bust unions (in the few industrial areas they still existed) and learn to run factories by remote control — China had already agreed to play ball, but was still gathering the infrastructure. S. Korea and a few other nations took the work in the meantime.

    Meantime, as Sam Francis (RIP) noted in the early nineties, Main Street USA turned into dollar stores and flea markets and retail dumps and fast food pits.

    Yes, nations that make things control the future. They also develop consumer economies. Thus in a few more years stuff made in China be beyond the price range of the average American.

    Consider the classic m.o. back in the day when Marxists wanted to overthrow a legitimate government in Latin America, Asia or Africa. They’d do everything in their power to wreck the nation’s economy, foment insurrection in the streets, and compromise the safety and security of the middle classes.

    The complicit media would assist by fixing all the blame upon the beleaguered administration. Ditsy-brained film stars from far-off Hollywood would chime in with scripted invocations claiming that the administration was guilty of violence against children.

    What bothers me about your statement “disturbances,” rioting, looting, etc.,.” and ” strikes,” is that what is not being nation state coordinated collection of crimes, by type, by size, and by format coordinated not just in the USA governed America but throughout the nation state governed world. Humans in every nation state in the world, except in those places the USA has named as its enemies, and in groups the USA has labeled with the catch-all euphemism Terrorist ( Terrorism ). To be labelled a terrorist by the USA, it is only necessary to compete against one of the monopoly powered usually global in size and presence corporations, immediately the collection of states owned or controlled by the DEEP STATE turn on the nation state and its leaders until that nation state either shuts down the competition, or until the DEEP STATE can take over control of the nation state that hosts an offending economic competitor.

    Everywhere you look, the nation state has been turned against those who compete with the Deep state, soon those who hold out for freedom and their way of lives become regime changed, tortured, bombed as in the case of Lebanon.. , or destroyed as in the case of Syria, Yemen or Ukraine. and Afghanistan and Earlier the Ottoman Empire, Germany, Russia, and on and on and on…

    Everywhere you look, not only is the nation state out front to wage war when ever competition arises; but there are also a massive number of NGOs, NProfit Orgs, and private corporations with government contracts, invading these various “host to competition that infringes on DEEP STATE economics)“nation states, undermining the power of their leaders to lead, and eventually, taking over control of the nation state to get what ever it is the members of the DEEP state want. The DEEP STATE is a mafia and they are turning the world into a Sicily..Where the DON rules, we need to wake up.. all of us.. Our choice at the poll this time is Hitler or Al Capone..

  32. Insightful overview. Giraldi explores the most important topic in American life. And one of the most neglected: MSM distortions, omissions, sanctimony, propaganda, deception and gaslighting. Stomach-turning drek–all of it.

    Americans are in a half-Zombie state because of what they see on TV, and cannot discuss on social media.

    Hollywood, elite media, and Big Tech are the gatekeepers. Yet floating above even them are predatory speech monitors from the ADL. They have the power.

    Yes, the Iron Curtain melted away. But in its place is the omnipresent Zionist Filter. Speech is now subject to kosher filtration and purification. Drink up!

    Bottom line: The dominant correct thinkers get to lecture and scold. You marginalized dissenters get to listen and mope. Say nothing! There are penalties for that–with more on the way.

    The righteous warriors are coming for you because they allegedly hate Hate. But don’t you try to exercise this sort of judgement yourself. No no. Too complex. Dangerous! Let the experts decide what is hate and what, therefore, must be deplatformed and detested. Leave those tough, sticky judgements to the bias-free experts, please!

    Which brings us back to the beginning: the only way for the good guys to stop hate is to get you to talk right and think properly–you bigoted, closeted white supremacist scum.

    Truth be told: the MSM is not our friend. It has become in fact our enemy.

    Truth be told: political operatives own and run our MSM. This is why the press is called the ‘Fourth Estate’. It’s the fourth branch of government. This unexamined power is why objective and unbiased journalists, editors, and media owners almost never existed and certainly don’t now. Yet we’re not supposed to notice. How very silly.

    Indeed, we erstwhile consumers of mainstream news are still expected to believe the childish fantasy that Russia–not Israel and its Diaspora community–secretly snatched the last ‘democratic’ election by overpowering the collective influence of Fakebook, Google, Twitter, CNN, NYT, WaPo, and CBS combined.

    Plausible?

    Oh sure. That probably happened.

    Undisclosed Rules of Conversation: dump and hate on the elected President all you want. But never utter a bigoted ‘slur’ against a designated special and fragile minority group. Never! Why? It might theoretically come back in the form of expressed ‘anti-Semitism’. And that is unacceptable, sayeth the networks.

    The MSM does not ‘speak truth to power’ because it is the Power. Trump is right to fling mud at the MSM. Too bad he won’t go one step further.

    In fact, news sources like Russia Today are likely to be much more reliable than CNN or FOX on many issues.

    So true, Philip. Isn’t it odd that not one Big Media platform dares criticize the greatest unidentified global power configuration in existence?–And it’s the one which maneuvers brazenly, globally, arrogantly, and in (almost) plain sight?

    This compulsory oversight in American life distorts all political analysis. It leaves America’s mainstream universe of news and entertainment partly blinded.

    Taboos can be strange.

    Then they implode.

    Thank you, Philip, for shining a light where it belongs.

    Although your, and all other criticism of the MSM is accurate, the fact that the MSM propagandizes the public for voting purposes has no real effect since the entire voting process is completely controlled by the political parties and the intel agencies. The parties and the general machinery of gov’t doesn’t need the MSM or the voting public to install their next figurehead. The entire process guarantees they get what they want regardless of the media and the voting public.

    The intel agencies are the equivalent of Jeffrey Epstein. They don’t protect the country in any way. They are there to snoop on the population and to discover the dirt on political candidates. That dirt is then used to control them.

    The two political parties prevent another from forming. These parties completely control the entire election process, not the least of which is pre selecting the person to hold the office that the voters get to anoint. It doesn’t matter which of the two candidates for any particular office gets the nod because both have already been vetted before becoming the official candidate.

    Trump was a minor mistake in their system. They are now stuck with him, but seriously look at what he’s accomplished that drains the swamp, reduces the murder the military is responsible for or how Israel is treated, how corporations are handed free billions upon billions, etc, and its largely business as usual. All the noise about Trump the disruptor is just that, noise. He hasn’t disrupted anything of note.

    As long as the two political parties exist, voting is for people who want to believe a lie. Deep down they know, absolutely know, that the system is rigged but they can’t let themselves fully believe that because that would mean there is no hope. They would realize that they live in a sophisticated soft military dictatorship that has stolen $21 Trillion dollars and is the actual gov’t of the country. That realization is unpalatable and hence rejected.

    I highly doubt it. Little girls wouldn’t be Trump’s style. He likes flashy women, tall, arm candy.

    Clinton? Oh, yeah, he’d be in there. He’s sleazier.

    Trump was born rich and handsome, he never had any problem getting laid. Clinton was poor, but handsome and smart – he used Epstein for the private jet, the flashy friends, etc. I’d be very surprised if either one of them was drawn into Epstein’s mossad honey-pot.

    Epstein’s targets were the powerful men who were neither rich enough nor handsome enough to have a shadow of a hope for nailing the high school cheerleaders. Guys very much like Epstein himself or his patrons like Wexner or Dershowitz.

    Using “pedophile” to refer to Epstein’s activity is misleading. Most folks see “pedophile” and think “little kids” and not “hot high school cheerleaders.” And there is a vast difference between the two. Every normal guy has fantasized about banging the hot cheerleaders. It’s not honorable for a 65yo man to admit he’s dreaming of a smoking hot 17yo while plowing a 65yo gelatinous mass of fat and wrinkles, but how else can he keep it up? Pedophilia it ain’t.

    A violent revolution has seldom produced a desirable outcome. They just trade one set of sociopaths for another.

    A political revolution would be preferable. Instead of yearning for a 3rd party, the emphasis should be to get rid of the two currently in control of the machinery and to eventually smash that machinery. The way to do that would be to start an alternate voting channel via the Internet and over time show the divergence between what the population wants and what the parties engineer as acceptable topics for debate.

    The aim would be to delegitimize the political parties and simultaneously invent a new voting method that isn’t as open to corruption as the existing system. Each vote would cost the voter $1 via credit card. The CC companies databases could be used to eliminate duplicate votes; not perfect but reasonable initially to be refined later once the system catches on. UNZ.COM could be that site.

    The site would ask the population for the major issues that need to be addressed. The official candidates could use that platform to provide answers for those issues. If they chose not to cooperate, as would certainly be the case early on, sooner or later why they won’t cooperate will become an issue in itself. Cooperation would eventually be demanded of the candidates and control shifts away from the political parties.

    As the parties lose their stranglehold on the process, candidates could be discovered from the population at large to run for office as they produce a platform only via the written words on the site and their names, sex, age, race, etc are disguised just as our handles here are how we interact with each other. The winner will be revealed as a real person.

    I’ve thought this out in my capacity as a professional software developer and anarchist, but it’s too lengthy to post the evolution of this system here as a comment.

The main thing for me that comes out of all of this is how much a swindle truly everything is now. “America” is basically a money-printing machine and the game seems to be to hustle your way into a position where you can suck as much cash out as possible. The Hospital industry is just another industry but they have the credibility of making it seem like they are billing people for procedures that have some basis in science. I hardly believe that anymore.

    But in the end, ok… if that’s really all that’s happening here and it’s a huge free-for-all for cash where you don’t even have to be a US citizen to get benefits anymore… What exactly is the point of having a military other than it’s just another way to spend loads of cash. I definitely wouldn’t support any kind of war on behalf of “American Interests” now. We have been swamped by illegal immigrants and the government is owned by finance people. I guess we can’t really stop them from using the money to pay for military stuff but the idea that any of this has any relationship to what’s good or bad for “Americans” has been proven to be a complete crock of bull. We are all basically squatters in the parking lot of a shopping mall living in RVs and eating whatever food they sell at the nearest convenience store. That’s all America is for me these days.

    Revolution is an answer…

    Here’s the problem with revolution: Though all of the concerns and issues noted by RoatanBill, Phil Geraldi and others are perfectly legitimate, and massive, systemic change (not only in the USA, but right across the “Western” world is absolutely needed) any kind of uprising by the people – baring in mind the overwhelming majority of whom are clueless beyond the fact that they know something’s wrong – will have no idea what to replace that system with, and will therefore be helplessly vulnerable to politically savvy manipulators all to willing to steer things, so that, just as today, nations end up with a whole new form of ZOG.

    It’s been my contention for a long time that our best way out of this rapidly worsening mess is for large enough numbers of people to turn their backs on the current system all together (or as much as possible), to develope and nurture alternative means by which autonomous households within wider, interconected communities can meet their immediate needs, from economic, to educational, to creative, whilst sumultaniously endowing themselves with the skills to defend against legal and or physical attack, and whilst publicising their endeavours, so that the movement might grow in strength as like minded others become inspired to step out of mainstream of society.

    All of that said, time now seems to be of the essence, so that maybe revolution may well be an answer… and let the cards fall where they may.
    In fact, short of some evolutionary byforcation, revolution may be the only answer open to us now.

    The world has gone utterly covid-crazy and it won’t be long before some brain-dead medical-mafia automations come a-calling with syringes full of poison and “quantum dot”/mark of the beast tattoos. For my part I will resist that imposition to my last breath.

    Just shy of 9 years ago I got as far out of the system as far I could, so that now I live on a mountainside in Portugal where we grow our own food, generate power via solar, and take pure spring water at source. It could be said that I’m one of the lucky ones (if foresight may be conflated with luck) because we (me, hubby and a handful of like minded friends) have enough resources to ensure our survival. Though to what end is anybodies guess. I’ve called till I’m blue in the face for others to join us, with only very limited success, even amongst my wide awake friends. Maybe, when the time comes, this can be a place for refugees from the system or from the revolution and this little alternative can grow into something of benefit to more than just us few.

    Or maybe we’ll head back to Blighty, to explode the belly of the beast…

    Or maybe I’ just write my book and have done with it all.

    Truth be told: political operatives own and run our MSM. This is why the press is called the ‘Fourth Estate’.

    They are more correctly described as a Fifth Column, one far more open and sworn to destroy our country and its foundational citizens – and taxpayers – as any that ever operated during World War II. You would think this would be of vital interest to people who loudly declare themselves to be “Nazi-punchers”, but who time and again show themselves to be merely low-level street terrorists informed and inspired by Mao’s Red Guard and the irredeemable thugs of the African National Congress. One wonders what’s preventing them from mimicking the Red Terror waged by the leftists of Spain, when the battle for “freedom” involved the disinterment of the graves of Catholic clergy to better pose the corpses in blasphemous positions. Imagine how depraved those Mostly Peaceful protesters had to have been for even a leftist-supporting site such as Wikipedia to baldly state

    The violence consisted of the killing of tens of thousands of people (including 6,832 Roman Catholic priests, the vast majority in the summer of 1936 in the wake of the military coup), attacks on the Spanish nobility, industrialists, and conservative politicians, as well as the desecration and burning of monasteries and churches.

    Directly in the crosshairs this time are small and medium-sized owner-operated businesses – the true backbone of American freedom and prosperity – who have largely been sacrificed in exchange for the knock-kneed offerings of Danegeld from our giant conglomerates, all of whom have prospered immensely from the suffering and privation brought on by the Democratic lockdown of society – and the total shutdown of our economy.

    Think! – have you read a single article charting how the government war on small business directly enriched Amazon.com and world’s richest autocrat, Jeff Bezos?…. who then funnels his windfall into a newspaper that blatantly pimps for the Democratic Party, which translates into a vast payday for the DNC, not least from its newly-approved partnership with the shadowy and many-tentacled Soros-surrogate group, BLM?

    The result is what you’d expect when a fringe group operates with the full cooperation and partnership of major industry and both political parties (don’t confuse Trump with a standard-issue Republican, please – he may have terrible flaws, but that isn’t one of them) – 10% of the population holding the other 90% in a chokehold with only one set of rules: no arrest and prosecution for Bolshevik violence and terror…..but the zero-tolerance heavy hand of corrupt Leviathan coming down hard against any and all citizens who fight back or, eventually – inevitably – who even struggle against their restraints.

    Short of the sudden arrival of celestial horsemen to punish the guilty and reward the set-upon, it has become clear that the only answer is the one that the Powers That Be claim to be dead set against: racial separatism. (Particularly when we consider that all that will be necessary to turn America into Hell on earth will be the adoption of Ibram Kendi’s First Law, sometimes known as equality of outcome:

    To fix the original sin of racism, Americans should pass an anti-racist amendment to the U.S. Constitution that enshrines two guiding anti-racist principals: Racial inequity is evidence of racist policy and the different racial groups are equals.

    Could any “amendment” be more terrifyingly totalitarian than this?)

    White and black separation would, instead, accomplish two goals, both more important than Kendi’s quick fix: we would learn soon enough about actual equality of outcomes (which is why no Communist, black or white, wants anything to do with the creation of one more failed basket-case black state), and much more importantly, white families can sleep secure in their beds at night, without worrying about Apache raids at midnight, egged on and recorded for “posterity” by that Fourth Estate/Fifth Column referred to up top. Because the fact of the matter is that, even should some combination of government and law-enforcement halt the burning and looting of America – as things stand now, none of the worst malefactors will ever see the inside of a prison cell….which means any ceasefire will only be temporary, to be violently ripped asunder the moment they sense white Americans have at last lowered their guard once more. And living in perpetual paranoid readiness for violent uprisings and mindless destruction is no way to live at all.

    Trump has it half right, a border wall is the answer: only it needs to run lengthwise, between the Southern and Northern borders. If we don’t use the next four years to plan out such a separation, fretting over our children’s children will be a fruitless exercise – those who aren’t murdered will be captured and ‘go native’….and in case you haven’t looked at a globe lately, there’s no place left to run.

    As a recovering journalist, I can point out that even on a rinkydink rag in a small city, where I got fired for being a real journalist back in the early ’70’s; he who owns the presses and distribution networks calls the tune. It’s a matter of working-class (no matter how middle-class your income or social-status) versus the ownership class. The latter wins every time.

  71. @American Citizen 2.0

    The up front system has no legal status. Therefore, the voting has no legal status and restricting the vote to people that have credit cards is just the initial roll out. To have a serious effect on the real elections doesn’t require full participation.

    If the 100 million that work for a living express their wishes in a truly open environment, the political system would have to take that seriously into their plans. The whole idea is to force the parties to react as opposed to their unhindered by the masses system now.

    The millions of individuals that have credit cards are the ones paying the freight for those that you highlighted. It’s my opinion that they should be the ones to set the tone at least initially.

    Once things get more established, other funding mechanisms can come on line. Part of that might be free voting at a library that also happens to have the necessary computer equipment to partake of Internet voting. It would take years for this to unfold and what evolves would become more and more inclusive of participation.

    Candidly, I’m not that concerned about the moochers in the society and the bulk of the people that don’t have two nickles to rub together are part of the problem. They vote for a living instead of working for a living.

    Personally, I don’t believe in voting and wouldn’t participate in what I’m proposing. This is for people that believe in the fantasy of government to better express what that gov’t should be about. It might lead to the realization that we don’t need elected representatives if we can do it ourselves. That would lead to a no rulers situation and then I’d cooperate after the nonsense of a political class is but a bad memory.

    This is very interesting, RoatanBill! In fact it reminds me of an idea I was developing many years ago (before marriage).

    My notion was to set up alternative poling stations (I think you call them “voting places”) outside the official poling stations, where voters could, instead of or as well as, casting their official vote, vote for “none of the above” (or something similar) as a declaration of no confidence in the party-political system.

    Your idea is much better, particularly going forward, as you develope a whole new system of anonimous candidacy. Brilliant!

    Actually, I feel you have an adea worth developing, though I think it deserves its own website.

    Maybe there is hope after all! 🙂

    the most frantic, and funniest, reaction Thursday came from City University of New York journalism professor Jeff Jarvis, who demanded apologies and other forms of satisfaction from the Washington Post for allowing Trump campaign ads to appear on its website.

    ‘It’s not honorable for a 65yo man to admit he’s dreaming of a smoking hot 17yo…’

    What you dream of and what you actually do are two different things. Also, while it may well be both doomed and morally dubious to attempt a ‘May-September Romance,’ it’s light-years away from methodically recruiting troubled teenagers, chewing them up, and then spitting them out when you’ve tired of them.

    I agree that the posture of some that ‘of course no decent man would want a seventeen-old, however willing’ is both hypocritical and absurd. However, it’s also true that what Epstein et al did was simply not right — and it’s oppressive if not actually shocking that so many of our leaders were willing to take advantage.

    I’ve worked the idea out in my mind over a considerable period of time. My tech background allows me to know what is reasonably possible and the costs involved.

    An impartial parallel voting system would, in short order, expose the corruption in the current ‘legal’ monopoly voting system. That’s what needs to happen – get people to look at this ugly situation and not be able to fool themselves any longer. Once that happens, the current system can not maintain its power.

    We are entering a depression, IMHO. The dollar is soon going to be worth much less and possibly near toilet paper. Before everything turns to crap, this system would need to be in place and the current scam exposed for all to see, because without it, the current thieves and scoundrels will convince Boobus Americanus to once again let them produce the new normal.

    The theory behind representative government is that superior men-or at least men not inferior to the average in ability and integrity-are chosen to manage the public business, and that they carry on this work with reasonable intelligence and honesty. There is little support for that theory in known facts. – H. L. Mencken

    The credit card companies are the receipt for a vote cast. No more electronic ballots susceptible to man-in-the-middle attacks which were documented in Baby Bush’s first win.

    The Internet is near universally available as the best private voting booth possible. IP address tracking for votes cast would make phony voting near impossible.

    Credit card data provides the physical address for the voter. Eventually cross referencing that data with US citizenship records could weed out illegals voting and could simultaneously issue arrest warrants all in one go while flashing up a message that the user should report to the nearest police station.

    I could go on, but there is no downside to Internet voting that I can conceive. BTW – I did white hat hacking professionally to test corporate security, so I know where the vulnerabilities are.

    Sure, that may be the case as revenues dry up and Federal rescue funds remain tied up, but in the beginning the problem was that local governments were unwilling to protect the persons and property of their taxpayers. They actually assumed they could burn their cities to the ground to cast a bad shadow on the Bad Orange Man, and further assumed that after he was deposed, the sainted Demonrat regime that would replace him would plunder the remaining viable parts of the union to rebuild their petite fiefdoms.

However, they were certainly very poor young women and they were easily manipulated and abused. And I believe that all of them were white, which makes it look very bad for the small hats involved.

    175,000 deaths

    340,000,000 population of the United States

    175,000/340,000,000 = 0.00051470588

    5.2 million cases

    5,200,000/340,000,000 = 0.0152941176

    The majority of deaths occurred in nursing homes.
    No surprise there. Most families have a “do not resuscitate” order. Covid 19 didn’t kill them. It was an additional health burden. In many cases a fall or the common cold would have had the same outcome.

    The next highest percentage of cases involves those with underlying health problems. Diabetes etc…

    I think the idea is worth developing.
    I think a platform, giving voters the oportunity (initially) to register a “none of the above” type protest vote could be established and advertised in time for the November election.
    By the time the mid-terms come around the platform could be developed to include (shadow) candidates across most states.
    Similar platforms could be developed in other countries.
    I have access (via hubby) to unlimited free hosting should you wish to take advantage of it.
    Because the world is bat-shit crazy/covid-crazy, the exercise may prove futile, but maybe, just maybe, there is time to make a difference.

    As I mentioned, I come from the software industry, as a developer and project manager. I haven’t even documented the idea to be able to transmit it to someone else because I suspect that alone would take a week of work. I’m also an engineer, and think at the quantum level of detail.

    The reason I haven’t done anything about the idea is because it would take a team of people and the money to support them, at least, to pull this off. At a minimum, I would want some software types and others to pick through the various development stages I envision because what gets built initially won’t completely be in the final project. Some code and capability is to bootstrap the idea into the public arena and gets shelved over very short periods of time as the public warms up to the idea with evolved code taking its place.

    I need non software types to try to shoot holes in my idea or to come up with alternatives or different approaches to issues. Maybe a dozen people in all to start. Additionally, eventually servers and their interconnections would be needed scattered strategically across the country to handle the load. You can’t trust an Amazon AWS or similar service because TPTsB will get it shut down. It has to be independent with possible hosting overseas as backup.

    This all takes a pile of money. While going through the idea, I also figured out it could earn a fortune, many multiples of the development and operating costs every year, year after year, and country after country. I’m talking billions annually. Think of it – 7.5 billion people and most of them pissed off with their gov’t. Know anyone with a few million and an itch to poke the political systems of the world in the eye?

    I’ve said enough here already. A project like this would have to be done under the radar and then sprung on the various regional political systems as a total shock. Part of the costs involved might include body armor.

Just like Johnson’s punting interlocutor, whose mother was a receiver of stolen goods under pretense of running a bawdy house, Jizzlaine is a CIA agent under pretense of running a pedo cathouse. The Jewy Mossad smell they stink out is sheep dip.

    When Jizzlaine got her tit in the wringer and went to ground, what was that book she was reading in the fuck-you photo? It was about CIA. She’s got a USPS regional distribution center full of graymail.

    Secret “Mossad” agent Sheldon Adelson got the critical job of bugging Assange’s privileged legal deliberations. Assange, CIA’s public enemy number one, the guy who exposed CIA’s domestic surveillance and illegal war propaganda m.o. with Vault 7 and 8. Anybody think CIA would delegate that ratfuck to some puke who’s not under fail-safe control?

    Of course not. Mossad runs errands for CIA. If the “Israel Lobby” ever gets out of line, CIA will squash them like bugs.

    Anon 137, yer not too good at complicated stuff, are you? Anybody who says Jews are not totally in charge is a Jew? If I was dumb like that I would think anybody who says stuff about Jews is CIA. But dumb simple explanations only work on dumb simple people. And they are a minority here.

    Were you like this about South Koreans, when they were bribing the shit out of Congress? Were you like this about South Africans, when they were pariahs clinging for dear life to CIA and doing germ warfare for them? Did you think Pakistan runs the world when Paki cutout Imran Awan bugged Congress? Nuh-uh, I bet you di’int.

    But now that Israel survives only by virtue of CIA protection, formally implicated in universal jurisdiction law, their aid lifeline subject to legal cutoff at the snap of CIA’s finger, you’re obsessed with them running the world. Those shitty little countries were all different CIA cutouts for different times, used and discarded like toilet paper. And now CIA is ready to flush its shit-smeared Bibi asswipe.

    The Jews you hate, they’re traditional parasitic elites, sucking up to power. And power in the US is concentrated in CIA. If you cannot understand why that is, Bill Gates’ eugenicists are going to sterilize you as a mental defective with your next bullshit flu vaccination.

    It is a valid “worry” that Zion ruled UK might “invite” some Israel Secret Intelligence Service” (ISIS) members into the UK to work for Israel. It is not anti-Islamic to note that.

    http://themillenniumreport.com/2014/09/isis-israeli-secret-intelligence-service/

    According to documents released by Snowden, “The only solution for the protection of the Jewish state “is to create an enemy near its borders”. (Gulf News, July 15, 2014)

    Let us be under no illusions, the Islamic State is a CIA-Mossad creation. It is an intelligence asset.

    The incursion of IS brigades into Iraq in June was part of a carefully planned military-intelligence operation supported covertly by the US, NATO and Israel. In Syria, the ISIL is said to be part of “opposition” fighting government forces. The Israeli military is directly supporting the ISIL out of bases in the occupied Golan Heights…”

    In both cases, the”beef” with Trump is that he’s rocking the boat

    No he’s not; rather, he’s a con man who fools people into believing that he is. The “beef” with Trump is political theater – a facade behind which he escalates tensions all over the world in vigorous pursuit of the “deep state” agenda of world domination and control at any cost.

    — both in terms of his criticism of the Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama wars for Israel and the Petrodollar

    If the U.S. “government” give a damn about the petrodollar it wouldn’t be trashing it.

    and in terms of the America First noises he’s made.

    Exactly; when it comes to doing something good for “America” the evil orange clown only makes “noises.”

    While he’s proven to be a fairly reliable Zionist stooge…

    LOL! So what would he have to do to become a more reliable stooge?

    (although he hasn’t started any new wars in the Mideast, and been more of a placeholder)

    A “placeholder” who’s expanded the illegal U.S. occupation of Syria rather than withdraw, and who’s done nothing but provoke Iran since the day he was inaugurated. There’s been no big Mideast war yet only because Iran hasn’t taken the bait so far, not because the evil orange clown hasn’t been trying to start one.

    he’s edging a little too close to America First (with his domestic rhetoric and some of his policies) for comfort.

    What “America First” policies would those be? Arming Taiwan while badmouthing China? Stealing Syrian oil? Stealing Venezuelan assets and using them to fund a destabilization effort in Venezuela? Exiting nuclear treaties, repudiating the doctrine of “mutually assured destruction” and starting a new arms race?

    Should we really trust the internet for voting, and use credit cards via BANKS for this process? Getting banks involved is the antithesis of this whole ordeal under which we find ourselves.

    The rot in this country is so prolific, I’m not sure if you fully understand just how ingrained it is. When big corporations own the internet pipes, it almost seems futile to think you could just rent some server space or a web host, and be able to trust that it won’t be hacked by the best in the world.

    I honestly feel like we need to return to some colonial-style way, because everything else can and is being tampered with.

    To the average person, much of what happens on the Internet must appear to be just short of magic. For those of us that understand the technology, we know what is and is not possible. If the Internet disappeared tomorrow, everything would come to a halt. I believe you know this instinctively, so trusting the Internet is something we already rely on for our existence.

    If we can use the corrupt banking system for our current credit card purchases, then I think we can use it to ‘purchase’ either candidate A or candidate B just as we purchase gadgets from Amazon or Walmart. At the least, it’s more secure that the current voting methods which have been proven to have been hacked numerous times. The fact that the Israelis are behind most of the voting machines should also raise suspicions.

    Hacking a voting site is the least of the concerns. Getting the pipes shut down as you say, is a much larger issue and is why backups need to be developed as part of a roll out. With the right distributed architecture, shutting down one set of servers just shifts the load to the remaining ones in a different geographical region.

    It would benefit such a secondary voting system immensely if TPTsB did attempt to shut it down because then the average person would know exactly who his enemy is, as I already know.

    Is Soros also a non-jew?

    His parents were Jewish, however he has repudiated the faith of his forefathers.

    George IslamoSoros is a virulent anti-Semite and a Muslim.

    He is so dangerous to Jews (and Christians), Israel regularly warns the world about his funding of violent Muslim organizations. (1)

    Financing tied to billionaire activist George Soros is a common yet largely under-reported theme among organizations that lead or support the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign attempting to delegitimize the Jewish state.

    In January, Israel released a list of 20 BDS-supporting organizations whose members will be banned from entering Israel due to their BDS activism, prominently featuring six American groups. At least four of the six BDS-promoting U.S. groups receive funding tied to Soros. Scores of other U.S. organizations that support the BDS movement are financed by Soros.

    One can place so many hurdles to jump that hacking isn’t the likely attack source. Getting the pipes shut down is much easier and totally effective. That’s the real threat.

    Laura Baker, Veronica’s mother: “She was my baby. She was my baby who had a future. She had such big, big plans for her future. My daughter would never hurt anybody. She didn’t have a fighting chance in this. She was a good girl.” …

    Four people under the age of 20 have been arrested …Devin Cordell Jones, 17, was accused of killing Baker …. Three others — Keyshara Michelle Deans, 19, Nezyiha Zamir Collins, 19, and Tyreek Qumay Rogers, 18 — were charged with felony accessory for helping Jones after Baker’s death. Deans also faced charges in an unrelated case — financial card fraud, financial card theft and conspiracy to commit the fraud.

    Ms. Baker was not some pornographer and vicious thug who died of overdose and then lionized by PC idiots.
    Her murder must be placed at the feet of Oprah and similar wealthy ‘influencers’ that have been denoucing white privilege (such as having white skin) and stocking racial tension to enhance their popularity.

    I assume the military and intel agencies (the real gov’t) already have the necessary communications plumbing to keep their nefarious operations going, so they can shut down the public Internet whenever they feel like it. All it takes is for some costumed goon to point a gun at some nerd at a NAP (Network Access Point) and that node goes offline.

    Since the intel agencies have their listening gear already installed in all the NAP’s, they probably don’t even need the goon; they’ll just issue a command remotely and one or more NAP’s goes dark.

    The corporations that need the Internet have probably already hardened their private networks, especially the contractors that support (the real gov’t).

    Wait till cell service gets spotty or disappears for ‘National Security’ reasons.

    Reagan had nothing to do with shipping manufacturing jobs overseas. He slapped a tariff on Japanese motorcycles to save Harley Davidson. Look at where H.D. is now. He also loaned Lee Iacocca money to bailout Chrysler to save American jobs.
    Because outsourcing got a full head of steam in the 80’s doesn’t mean he was behind it or for it. You have Bill Clinton to thank for NAFTA and GATT.
