In 2005, President George W. Bush allegedly addressed a meeting of Republicans discussing whether to renew the Patriot Act due to its possible unconstitutionality by angrily blurting out that the Constitution was “just a goddamned piece of paper!” If the story is true, it partly explains the numerous crimes committed by Bush and his associates, including the invasions of both Afghanistan and Iraq based on hyped and even fabricated intelligence. It also suggests the unwillingness of proponents of overriding executive authority to accept that the American people are the inheritors of a number of inalienable liberties to include freedom of speech and association, both of which were impacted negatively by the Patriot Act and the other legislation that followed.

I often think of George Bush when I observe the antics of Joe Biden and his claque of Trotskyites at work. To be sure, thanks to the Bill of Rights you can currently say anything you want in the United States, though there are limits on that freedom if one goes so far as to offend those who are powerful. If you do upset the oligarchs who run our country through corruption of public officials, they have a thousand ways to get you. I recently wrote an article on the use of lawfare to block people and views one objects to by taking them to court on some pretext and bankrupting them through legal fees and penalties. The court system hardly represents the people in any country. It is inevitably heavily politicized by the politicians that grant it its authority and ultimately represents the big money interests that the judges consider their real peers in the Establishment.

The United States government has in fact embraced the suppression of unpopular views and the nations and groups that it finds offensive through the use of sanctions, which are essentially punishments doled out arbitrarily as the government can issue a sanction on its own authority without having to provide any evidence or make a case. And when the White House sanctions a foreign government or group, secondary sanctions kick in to prevent anyone from exchanging goods or services with the targeted entity. I recently was on the receiving end of a Department of the Treasury demand that I stop writing for a foreign website which had been sanctioned. I was warned that I might be subject to a \$311,562 fine if I failed to comply. Insofar as I could determine, the foreign website was only guilty of having strongly condemned United States foreign policy, as do I and many other Americans, but the threat of the government coming down with its thousands of lawyers meant that I and other US contributors terminated our relationship.

The federal government was telling us that we had a right to free speech and association except in cases where we were interacting with groups that the Treasury Department disapproved of. In a system as hopelessly corrupted as the US federal government, it is inevitable that powerful groups will surface that will be able to dictate what is acceptable and what is not. That very often comes down to what might once have been regarded as free speech and association issues. The Democratic Party might reasonably be described as a group of satrapies representing certain special interests, most visibly homo-and transsexuals, “choice” women, blacks and Jews. The balancing act required to keep all the subsets under control frequently strains credibility. Joe Biden recently made an impassioned speech demanding that the so-called Equal Rights Amendment should immediately become part of the Constitution because it is “the clear will of the American people.” Ironically, Joe heads a government that believes that gender discrimination is okay as long as it is directed against white men. He is also currently pushing for national education reform, which some refer to as either dumbing down or reverse racism, to bring more “diversity” and “equity” into the system. Doing so of course will require Affirmative Action style discrimination based on race and the president is also pledged to nominate a new Supreme Court Justice based solely on skin color and gender, not on qualifications or preparation for the position. Other candidates need not apply even if they are better qualified and “equal rights” depend on who you are in the Democratic Party pecking order. Leondra Kruger, reportedly a leading candidate is black, a woman and also Jewish.

So Joe Biden either understands the meaning of the words and expressions he uses, or he doesn’t. He probably thinks it doesn’t matter as he is speaking to a receptive and not very critical audience, which includes his mainstream media allies. And there is also his Chief of Staff Ron Klain there to poke him in the ribs when he is hesitating and has to say anything or look presidential.

In another speech in Atlanta regarding the so-called “right to vote,” Honest Joe explicitly compared skeptics in the Senate who would prefer to have the states determine who is a legal resident and citizen for voting purposes to historic racists Bull Connors and George Wallace. He then denied that he had been calling the dissidents out as racists. George Orwell’s “newspeak” is definitely on the way as the “right to vote” is little more than a pious slogan that is an invitation to widespread electoral fraud benefiting the Democrats through mail-in voting and registration without documentation.

And there is of course Israel, which has an entire government department dedicated to the propagation of expressions like “holocaust denial, “surging anti-Semitism” and “right to defend oneself.” January 27th was International Holocaust Remembrance Day and some of the antics engaged in by presumably well-educated adult politicians and government officials perhaps offer a glimpse into what is coming in terms of the waning ability to speak one’s mind. The United Nations approved an Israeli motion calling for a crackdown on “holocaust denial,” and the Israeli ambassador Gilad Erdan demanded that such content be banned from social networking media worldwide. He claimed that “Holocaust denial has spread like a cancer. It has spread under our watch. It has spread because people have chosen to be irresponsible and to avoid accountability…As you dodge responsibility, evil grows… Social media giants can no longer remain complacent to the hate that spreads on their platforms.”

To be accurate, the “avoiding accountability” claim sounds more reminiscent of Israeli and US behavior than that of those social media sites alleged to be in denial. And the malady appears to have taken hold in “liberal” Canada, where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has denounced protesting truckers as “fascists” and “racists.” He is beginning to sound like Joe Biden and Naftali Bennett and I am waiting for the “domestic terrorist” and/or “anti-Semite” label to be applied to quell what is a genuine populist reaction to draconian government policies. To cite Orwell again, what Israel, Canada and the United States understand is that when it comes to establishing the preferred narrative “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past… The very concept of objective truth is fading out of the world. Lies will pass into history.” Labeling opponents as racists or Nazis delegitimizes them so you will not have to deal with their grievances or arguments, which is precisely what is intended.

The irony is that free speech is already a distant memory in many countries. Orwell opined that “If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.” Constitutions guaranteeing a right to free speech proliferate in the Old World but are ignored or circumvented by governments, particularly if one is addressing almost anything having to do with the Second World War. Witness how in Europe the issue of presumed “holocaust denial,” now sometimes referred to in the US as “holocaust denialism” as if it were a disease, has been widely criminalized. The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that the negation or revision of “clearly established historical facts — such as the Holocaust — … would be removed from the protection of free speech under the European Convention on Human Rights.”

Bear in mind that “holocaust denial” includes any questioning of any aspect of the standard narrative endorsed by the US and other governments. Interestingly, a bit of pushback against a holocaust exemption for free speech appeared in an issue of Foreign Policy magazine, entitled “First they came for the Holocaust Deniers and I did not speak out”. The author Jacob Mchangama observes how hate speech and similar legislation has an unfortunate tendency to propagate and be used by governments to block all kinds of speech and writing that is actually quite innocent of any agenda but disapproved of by those in power. He cites how in 2014 a Russian blogger named Vladimir Luzgin was arrested and imprisoned after writing quite innocently on social media that Communist Russia and Nazi Germany collaborated to invade Poland in 1939 and thus began World War 2. His account was undoubtedly historically accurate, but the way it was presented offended someone in power and he was found guilty of misrepresenting the accepted narrative relating to the “Great Patriotic War against Germany.”

It is not completely clear what kind of Brave New World the Democrats are intent on creating, but it should be accepted as certain that once free speech goes and the universities go “woke” there will no longer be platforms to challenge the status quo. Conservative or otherwise dissenting publications will come under pressure to toe the line or the arbiters of decorum in Washington will be quick to make sure that the message is received that there will be consequences. We have entered into a strange twilight zone where what really happens and happened in the past will not be subject to examination. Will it be a better or safer world because of that? Undoubtedly no, but living now in what are likely to be the twilight years of our tottering republic we can only hope that somehow sanity will prevail and we will again be able to experience real freedom.

  1. It is not completely clear what kind of Brave New World the Democrats are intent on creating…

    Since that sentence is the beginning of the very last paragraph, this may be a demonstration of what they call “burying the lede”. The darned Democrats just can’t be trusted!

    As it happens, I agree. But compared with what? Like, what have Republicans done lately to enhance freedom? How many of THEM have voted against the laws making BDS protests against the Apartheid state illegal? How many of THEM vote for the right of Women not to be compulsory mothers?

    …Honest Joe explicitly compared skeptics in the Senate who would prefer to have the states determine who is a legal resident and citizen for voting purposes to historic racists Bull Connors and George Wallace.

    If semi-senile Honest Joe said that, then he is absolutely correct. At least in terms of Federal Elections. (What the inbred ******heads do regarding their State elections can safely be ignored.) Allowing States to disinfranchise Black citizens in Federal Elections is as insane as permitting California to let Illegal Aliens to vote in those same Federal Elections.

  2. What we learn from the Whoopi story:

    In the thug autocracies that Giraldi shills for — Russia, China, Iran, Hezb, Hamas — when a public figure speaks contrary to the narratives that powerful elites insist upon, consequences range from cancellation to outright brutality (detention, beating, long term imprisonment, murder), often carried out by “legitimate” state actors.

    In the open societies where Jews naturally assume elite roles, when a glib, smiling clown with a substantial media footprint utters shallow, ahistorical nonsense, there is — breathe deep now — a “talking to”, a scold, imploring the transgressor to gain a more mature appreciation of well established historical events, and, in this case, the imposition of a two week timeout before the transgressor resumes their high paid high visibility role.

  3. it should be accepted as certain that once free speech goes and the universities go “woke” there will no longer be platforms to challenge the status quo.

    Today we know the universities comprise a cancer within this civilization.

    Today in the US the universities are by far the most totalitarian Covidian institutions, to this day still imposing the most extreme, literal lockdowns, literally imprisoning students in their dorm rooms.

    Inexplicably to anyone who still values freedom in any political, social or psychological sense, or simply in the sense of having the physical freedom to move about, it seems there’s still a large constituency of students willing to submit to this totalitarian experiment right in the midst of our society. This is inexplicable to anyone who’s still a human being with a soul, but evidently the students see this as career training for aspiring totalitarian cadres.

    At the same time we suddenly see the revelation of what’s been a decades-long conspiracy among university administrators, professors and ambitious students to cultivate the neo-Bolshevist “wokeness” ide0logy, indoctrinate student cadres and infiltrate these cadres into every kind of institution – governmental, corporate, NGO, the establishment churches – to the point that the woke agents occupy high-level and otherwise critical positions at every point in these institutions.

    They’ve now launched their full-scale revolutionary attempt, aping the classical fascist technique of revolution-from-within-the-power-structure, timed to accompany its companion Covidian onslaught.

    Needless to say, there will be no challenging this status quo from within the universities, the very fortresses from which the revolutionary hordes have come squirming. And anyone who looks for a place and a people where the Bill of Rights still is respected and enforced will have to look outside this university-driven institutional system.

    Check out President Putin’s excellent speech about Cancel Culture and globohomo and how the early Satanic Communist Bolsheviks had imposed the same on the Russian people in 1917.

    Putin: Wokeness Is Dismantling The West: Cancel Culture First Happened In Russia During Bolsheviks!
    Putin’s speech translated in English

    “In point of fact, values are a product, a unique product of cultural and historical development of any nation. The mutual interlacing of nations definitely enriches them, openness expands their horizons and allows them to take a fresh look at their own traditions. But the process must be organic and it can never be rapid. Any alien elements will be rejected anyway, possibly bluntly.Any attempts to force one’s values on others with an uncertain and unpredictable outcome can only further complicate a dramatic situation and usually produce the opposite reaction and an opposite from the intended result.

    We look with amazement at the processes underway in the countries which have been traditionally looked at as the standard-bearers of progress. Of course, the social and cultural shocks that are taking place in the united States and Western Europe are none of our business, we are keeping out of this.

    Some people in the West believe that an aggressive elimination of entire pages from their own history, “reverse discrimination” against the majority in the interests of a minority, and the demand to give up the traditional notions of mother, father, family and even gender, they believe that all of these are the mileposts on the path towards social renewal. Listen, I would like to point out once again that they have the right to do this, we are keeping out of this. But we would like to ask them to keep out of our business as well. We have a different viewpoint, at least the overwhelming majority of Russian society – it would be more correct to put it this way – has a different opinion on this matter. We believe that we must rely on our own spiritual values, our historical tradition and the culture of our multiethnic nation. The advocates of so-called ‘social progress’ believe they are introducing humanity to some kind of a new and better consciousness. The only thing I want to say now is that their prescriptions are not new at all. It may come as a surprise to some people, but Russia has been there already. after the 1917 revolution, the Bolsheviks, relying on the dogmas of Marx and Engels, also said that they would change existing ways and customs and not just political and economic ones, but the very notion of human morality and the foundations of a healthy society. the destruction of age old values, religion and relations between people, up to and including the total rejection of family (we had that, too), encouragement to inform on loved ones-all this was proclaimed progress and, by the way, was widely supported around the world back then and was quite fashionable, same as today.” (President Putin shows anger and strong emotions on his face when he remembers that era, check out his face). “By the way, the Bolsheviks were absolutely intolerant of opinions other than theirs. This I believe, should call to mind some of what we are witnessing now. Looking at what is happening in a number of Western countries, we are amazed to see the domestic practices, which we, fortunately, have left, I hope, in the distant past. The fight for equality and against discrimination has turned into aggressive dogmatism bordering on absurdity, when the works of great authors of the past-such as Shakespeare-are no longer taught at schools or Universities, because their ideas are believed to be backward. The classics are declared backward and ignorant of the importance of gender and race. In Hollywood memos are distributed about proper storytelling and how many characters of what colour or gender should be in a movie.”

    Great article!

    Orwell opined that “If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.”

    The only word Orwell got wrong was the word forever. Why? We can answer that question by looking at another line from the article. Because that line tells us who is wearing the boot.

    …once free speech goes and the universities go “woke” there will no longer be platforms to challenge the status quo.

    The status quo is wearing the boot. Which is why the use of the word forever in Orwell’s quote is wrong. Because the fate of any status quo is a cultural impoverishment that undermines the status quo. Status quo’s are unsustainable, especially in an age more complex and unpredictable than every before.

    Or we could put it this way:

    The attempt of any elite to impose a social order that is free of control and sustained by force only increases the uncontrolled use of naked power. And it’s that force – constantly applied – that ends in cultural impoverishment and the collapse of the social institutions their power controls.

    This is why, as the saying goes, the revolution always ends by eating itself.

    If force fails there’s no alternative. And force always fails. So the system collapses.

    This is the theme of just about every Shakespearean Tragedy. The kingdom is overcome by some socio-moral sickness. There’s something wrong in the state of Denmark – not in the state of Hamlet. His behavior is merely symptomatic. It’s the system that’s sick. He’s just acting out more than anyone else because he’s the smartest one there.

    It’s not that he waited too long to act. That’s simple-minded. It’s that he was torn between wanting to act, but being smart enough to know that what he wanted to save was unsavable.

    Things just get worse until the whole thing crumbles in Act 5 and all of the players who up until then were playing their part, get wiped out. The implication being, after the curtain drops the dead are cleared from the stage and replaced. Only then can health return.

    And that’s the situation we’re today. We’re in Act 5.

  7. Mr Giraldi: Though the party you reference may call itself the “Democratic” Party, they might ought be sued for false-advertising, as per their egregious treatment of such Democrats as Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard , Cynthia McKinney and Dennis Kucinich.

    There is absolutely nothing democratic about the way the Democrat National Committee—evidently under strict orders emanating from the various minions of the owners of the self-styled “Federal” Reserve Bank—has loyally stayed “on message”, ensuring that such “off message” members of their own party get trounced in primaries from massive “Citizens United” cash-flows going to their opponents due to “rulings” by the Nine Criminals in Black robes, who act under the aegis of the United States of America CORPORATION, duly registered in its corporate status under the laws of the native state of our unlawfully seated chief executive and of its ruling DuPont crime clan.

    Those Black-Robed Extreme Courtesans, following the lead of the convicted Federalist, John Marshall, have usurped the legislative perquisites of the legislative body by concocting such monarchical judicial “rulings”. When appointed judges rule, this alleged government of we the people, by the people and for the people is nothing other than a ruptured republic.

    Thusly, Mr. Giraldi, to retain some level of respect by those many of us U.R. posters who are aware of the above-stated facts, please consider the weakening of your otherwise utile message by employing the semantic weakness of describing that group of grifters as the “Democratic” Party.

    By all their above actions they are properly decried as the Democrat Party; it being the purported left-wing of the Bank\$ter dominated two-party systematic duopoly.

  11. ‘…“Holocaust denial has spread like a cancer. It has spread under our watch.”…’

    Perhaps it has spread in response to the attempts to repress it.

    Without questioning the sincerity of those who profess to doubt the Holocaust, isn’t it possible that one of the motives that leads them to adopt such a belief the desire to defy an increasingly oppressive and indefensible orthodoxy? I’m reminded of Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s Christianity, which may have been sincere enough, but which also obviously owed something to a desire on his part to find an ideology to set against the secular orthodoxies of our time.

    Would so many so ardently deny the reality of the Holocaust if our masters weren’t so set on forcing us to agree it happened? It is they, not us, who have made it a banner and a symbol.

    What if we don’t want to march under that banner?

    So it’s not the Trots, it’s the Corporatists. The politicians are just their lackeys. That certainly sounds more realistic. To the Corporatists, you can add the US Deep State, the “Democrats” and the Zionists. The use they make of parts of Cultural Marxism are just tools to attack and demonise their opponents, and white opponents in particular.

    I recently was on the receiving end of a Department of the Treasury demand that I stop writing for a foreign website which had been sanctioned.

    So that’s why you stopped writing for the Strategic Culture Foundation in October of last year. Why couldn’t you have just said that ? Or would mere mention of this fact result in a fine for you from the US Government?

    Article said:

    In 2005, President George W. Bush allegedly addressed a meeting of Republicans discussing whether to renew the Patriot Act due to its possible unconstitutionality by angrily blurting out that the Constitution was “just a goddamned piece of paper!”

    The statement attributed to GWB was debunked 10 years ago.

    The report that Bush “screamed” those words at Republican congressional leaders in November 2005 is unsubstantiated, to put it charitably.

    We judge that the odds that the report is accurate hover near zero. It comes from Capitol Hill Blue, a Web site that has a history of relying on phony sources, retracting stories and apologizing to its readers.

    Update, Feb. 21, 2011: The author of the Capitol Hill Blue story has now withdrawn it. Doug Thompson messaged us to say:

    Doug Thompson: This is to let you know that the piece on Bush and the Constitution has been changed and reads:

    “This article was based on sources that we thought, at the time, were reliable. We have since discovered reasons to doubt their veracity. For that reason, this article has been removed from our database.”

    I no longer stand behind that article or its conclusions and have said so in answers to several recent queries. In addition, I have asked that it be removed from a documentary film.

  22. Industry in the widest sense was what created the wealth of the US; with deindustrialisation now approaching its completion, it can merely be redistributed. So all that remains to be done by the Powers That Be is to close the ranks, distance themselves as far as possible from the proles and make sure that their wealth is recycled only within their own peerage group. That is the simple “brave new world” envisioned by our political clowns. Staying up is the only intention they still have.

    Chins up though, if kikes and groids start interbreeding to ensure profitable double minority status for their spawn, as in the case of that Kruger woman, either group is going to lose its specific advantages quickly.

  23. Virtually all elected officials at the national level in the US are corrupt. They all receive large amiunts of money from their PACs, SuperPACs, and lobbyists — representing corporations, industries, countries other than the US, business entities other than American, rich Americans, rich foreigners. Money pours into “charities” and foundations that former politicians set up (Bushes, Clintons, Obamas) for whatever favors were rendered. Once out of office, former officials are rewarded with offers of unemployment by lobbyists, corporations, foundations, consulting firms, “think tanks” (funded by all of above), etc. Almost all elected officials retire from office much wealthier than they were when they gleefully take their first oath of office.

  26. I recall being appalled by a poll years ago in which the majority of respondents identified the Bill of Rights as a sort of communist manifesto, which they could not support. Nowadays of course we forget that there is an English Bill of Rights, in force since 1689, which protected the American colonists’ civil liberties so well that sections of it were copied verbatim into the American version a century later. The English Board of Trade’s crackdown on the leading cottage industry in the colonies, smuggling, largely led to the well known and wildly exaggerated claims by would-be revolutionaries of evil British tyranny.

    Congress originally considered 125 proposed amendments in 1789, which it reduced the ten we know after two years of debate. Reading the transcript of often rancorous discussion on them is remarkably eye opening, to say the least. (Recall that the discussion on how the Constitution itself was created was still a top state secret, would not be made public for another thirty years). For one example, the discussion of No. 7, which we now know as the Second Amendment, contained no talk of enabling citizens to possess firearms in order to overthrow the government –really now, that NRA fantasy is simply ludicrous- but much on whether federal officers would command state militias, or vice-versa, and most importantly, would the states or the national government be responsible for the men’s pay and other expenses.

    Incidentally one of the first petitions the new Congress received was from a group of Evangelicals anxious to remedy the Constitution’s oversight of not establishing an official state-supported church, as the mother country and three of the states already had. The legislators’ reply, again, hotly debated, was the First Amendment, explicitly forbidding such an imposition on freedom of conscience, one of the Enlightenment’s bedrock principles, still as endangered by today’s reactionaries as it was 233 years ago.

    What if “We the people” finally came to understand that :

    “The State is, and always has been, the great single enemy of the human race, its liberty, happiness, and progress.” (Murray Rothbard) ?

    … and that therefore, it benefits them greatly to either abolish all governments (my preference) or, at the very least, (at least here in the US) , to drastically downsize the federal government, in one fell swoop, back down to its original constitutional size and functions, which would shrink it back down to around 5% of its present size.( n.b.That shrinking would automatically include the elimination of _all_ unconstitutional federal agencies, including Mr Giraldi’s apparently much vaunted CIA).

    To the best of my knowledge, there has only ever been one presidential candidate in the last 50 years or more who proposed to do exactly that: Harry Browne in 1996 and 2000.

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

    See: “Why Government Doesn’t Work”:

    What the US needs right now is both a new Harry Browne, I.e. someone who is determined to drastically shrink the federal government back to its original size/functions, and, more importantly, enough voters that are fully cognizant of the fact that in the final analysis, government cannot (and therefore will not) solve any of their problems, and that, as always:

    In 2005, President George W. Bush allegedly addressed a meeting of Republicans discussing whether to renew the Patriot Act due to its possible unconstitutionality by angrily blurting out that the Constitution was “just a goddamned piece of paper!”

    I hadn’t heard that. It would be another example of the smooth transition from Bush to Obama:

    “But it’s really just a piece of parchment.”

    You should note in this speech the full rollout of “Our democracy” as replacement for our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Here’s a top tip, listen to how thoroughly it has overtaken any mention of the Constitution. Of late, even as a throwaway clause like Obama was forced to include five short years ago. They’ve quickly evolved to feeding Biden shout lines reminding us that our overlords, applying their version of Our Democracy, keep discovering the evolving ways our inalienable Rights aren’t absolute.

    It’s been clear to me at least for years that “Our Democracy” is their code to signal to each other who is on team Wave Goodbye To The Constitution. It isn’t just Democrats. You can hear it all the time from their RINO and Neocon partners.

    It is anything but coincidental that the other Five Eyes countries are at the current forefront of degrading liberties and freedom. With our Constitution and Bill of Rights, to get to tyranny with all deliberate speed necessitates us Leading From Behind.

    However, the above quote from your comment could apply to you as well. Just as you’re right to point out that there’s nothing democratic about the Democratic party, so too could someone point out that your use of the United States of America CORPORATION is also guilty of semantic weakness.

    The more accurate term is Jewish Supremacy Inc.

    Sometimes the devil isn’t in the details. Put another way, at moments when the details are so mangled and retconned, it’s essential to remind ourselves of the broad brush.

    While the US won The Cold War hands down in what used to be playfully called Hearts and Minds, a term thereafter applied perniciously. It’s important to remember what during even the height of that twilight struggle was considered a dangerous weakness by the National Security State.

    As popular culture reflected throughout, it was Soviet (or communist, whatever the varietal) superiority at the spy game. Indeed, everything else about our great republic, including our Inalienable Rights enshrined in the Constitution, were rightly recognized by the American nation as a strength totalitarian and authoritarian states could only envy.

    Contrast this with the post-Cold War love affair, now loud and proud among the ruling and governing classes, for a plug-n-play of some of that CCP China magic.

    What fascinates me is that there is a direct correlation between holding the two-cheers (or even three) for China’s governance model and. increasingly delusional thinking that it’s easy as pie to impose it on Americans. That’s kinda funny isn’t it, coming as it is right at the moment that the facially and genuinely appealing American Way is struggling globally?

    I’ll put all of you ahead of the curve. Though we will have to see how many hard days are ahead before everyone figures out that governing through coercion and force is exceedingly expensive. Not just in visible cost but opportunities lost. Call me crazy, but that (genuine, earned) Consent of the Governed thingie is the real secret sauce.

    Stasi-straggled East Germany was a cautionary-tale for me even before it collapsed faster than Jeb! for president.

    The law, however, didn’t go far enough for President Clinton. He’d asked Congress to give law enforcement expanded wiretap authority and increased access to personal records in terrorism cases, among other things. Congress refused, mainly because many felt loosening surveillance and records rules was unconstitutional.

    All bets were off, however, after 9/11, the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil. Faced with millions of fearful voters, Congress approached U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft’s post-9/11 recommendations with a different eye and overwhelmingly passed the Patriot Act.”

    “He said on the campaign trail in 2008, “As president, I will make the fight against al Qaeda and the Taliban the top priority that it should be. This is a war that we have to win.” He promised at least two additional brigades of combat troops and an additional \$1 billion in civilian assistance every year.”

    The Jews will “Samson Option” the entire world if they aren’t allowed to rule it.

    It’s reasonable to come to that conclusion. But I’m not so sure. And the explanation for why I’m not so sure is found in their culture.

    As Nietzsche pointed out, in so many words, of all of the world-historic peoples, from the Chinese, to the Japanese, to the Jews, Greeks, Romans, and Europeans (Christian and Secular, at least up until not all that long ago), whenever it came down to a life or death decision, only the Jews chose life at all costs, or, by any means necessary, meaning, no matter how ignoble. This is what he meant by The Slave Revolt In Morality.

    After all, the most important ingredient to their power today is the civilizational exhaustion of the West and the corresponding sense of overwhelm of its people, since most of those people (pretty much all of us really) are products of the Populuation Explosion of the 19th and 20th century. Ortega combined that historical fact with Nietzsche’s slave revolt in morality to write his masterpiece The Revolt of the Masses.

    And what do slaves and the masses have in common? They cling to life no matter what. In short, all it would take would be for another people who believe in themselves enough to be willing to fight, to call their bluff. Is this why their response to Russia, and not just Russia, is so hysterial?

    And since when is hysteria a sign of strength and self-confidence? In fact, speaking of Nietzsche, as he also once said – Whenever anyone overreacts it means they’re lying to themselves about something. From this perspective, maybe The Samson Option threat is another one of their lies.

Also, at least 60% of college students are young women, meaning that young males have chosen to quit or forgo college in droves. Even if those boys are working at Walmart, it’s better than losing your soul (and health) in demonic universities, where they go into debt without learning a marketable skill.

    Though you have done your research on the Second Amendment, you have somehow overlooked the implicit role of the unorganized militia, the province of every able-bodied citizen. This proviso was a direct reflection of the direct precipitator of the Revolution, the stand made at the Concord bridge by the Concord Township militia when the then legitimate British rulers decided to go “a bridge too far” with the aim of seizing the arms and munitions of said militia.

    Contrary to the machinations of the scheming Federalists, a gang dominated by land-speculators, certain slave-owners and those northern banking and financial interests who profited greatly from that slave-trade; the Anti-Federalists were made up more of hard-core American Revolutionaries, actual latter-day representatives of the everyday folk who stood up to British power with that shot heard round the world.

    Township militias in rural areas do constitute the will of their governing bodies, as per annual township meetings where there is no “authority”, rather each and every township resident present has one vote and where a showing of hands determines policy. At a local level, one man (woman) one vote is the full expression of true democracy.

    On a county, state or national level, reconstituted republican governance by representatives of We The People, with the Constitutionally determined outlawing of political parties along with very strict term-limits could express the will of the people to some fair degree.

    Of course, we cannot overlook Jefferson’s admonition when he, then conveniently tucked away as Minister (ambassador) to France, warned that the proposed (and adopted) court system introduced a monarchical element into what was allegedly a republican form of governance.

    So courts of a reconstituted republic would abolish the Supreme Court as developed in its legislative powers by the treasonous John Marshall, where members of said body are inevitably made up of lawyers and members of political parties. They would be replaced by a council of living national treasure elders, well noted in their communities for being giving, caring and yet judicious community builders. Minimum age for membership in such a court would be seventy and each term would be strictly limited to six years.

    America is in dire need of a Reconstitutional Convention populated by actual members of We The People and limited in the numbers of attorneys, bankers and other suspect self-seekers and representatives of the rich and powerful who could be admitted to such a gathering.

    I was in the Vietnam Era draftee army when the starting pay was around \$125/month. At least you had free room and board while in training. But, in my final year, the Powers-that-Be smartened up and went VOLAR (all-volunteer).

    It was the Master Stoke of the Empire. Instead of being forced to deal with disgruntled two-year draftees, they now had mercenaries, working for pay as well as generous retirement benefits – if they lasted for 20 years. No one championed VOLAR more than John McCain.

    A draftee army in times of endless wars is not sustainable, especially since the Vietnam debacle. The all-volunteer army has allowed this country to drift away from democracy into Patriot Act totalitarianism. Much as I dislike the idea of conscripting young men into uniform against their will, the citizen-soldier served as a brake against overseas aggression. When soldiers are more worried about collecting their pensions once they turn 40, armed revolutions against the whore politicians becomes impossible.

Back in the days of Baby Bu\$h, the hot potato was ensconced uncomfortably in the lap of the Elephant gang.

    In huge countries like the U\$ with its mass of double-dipsoid sub-urbanites and urban bros, the validity of representative governance is called into question. I’ll betcha dollars to donuts that a simple majority of “Murricans” cannot even name their Congresscritter. We need a reconstituted governmental system. Check out another of the postings I made on this thread along those particular lines.

    The right-left dichotomy is an ancient method for carrying out Caesar’s old dictum of “Divide and Rule”. If we remain divided like this we will not have any rights left.

    With respect, this myth appeals to the imagination, but it remains a myth. I challenge anyone to produce evidence of any U.S. military personnel being publicly harassed at any time in the USA during the Vietnam era.

    What really hampered the war effort was the rate of rebellions and mutinies by U.S. military personnel themselves, especially from 1971 onward. The anti-war movement was most effective inside the U.S. military, although this has been erased from public memory, and has been replaced with the myth of American civilians yelling, “Baby killer!”

    Many soldiers, sailors, and airmen were jailed for opposing the war.

    How many republicans governors coerced and destroyed the livelihoods and education and in some cases the health of their citizens under guise of the “pandemic”?

And that these bankers happen to be Jewish supremacists who, following the Talmud, view the 98% of non-Jewish Americans as as mere fodder for their manufactured war profiteering and financial crisis scams. Under the guise of their phony “War on Terror” they have subdued the Palestiinans and destroyed the Middle East, and they are now trying to expand that to their phony war on “domestic terror” against Americans. Since the banker Democrats are currently in control, they are running this operation through the Dem party. But the establishment Repubs are also treacherous sellouts, vying for their turn at the trough.

  113. Very good article and astute writer!

    A number of years ago, I was made to appear in court on a trumped-up trespassing charge. I lived in a small community just north of Rockford, Illinois. I was sitting on a “park bench” at 7:00 AM, having gone on a walk around the neighborhood. A homeowner’s association “honcho” came out and told me that I was trespassing. I told him to call the police, which he did.

    I got back home from my walk and a sheriff’s deputy was sitting in his squad car, waiting for me to get back. My soon-to-be ex-wife had told him that I had gone on a walk. The deputy asked me if I had been sitting on a bench in front of the “lake” and I told him that I had been sitting on it. He promptly gave me a summons to appear in court.

    I engaged the services of a lawyer, at a cost of \$500 and had to appear in court TWO times. My lawyer had obtained a plat of the land involved, which clearly showed that the bench was on county property. The judge then threw the case out.

    While I was in court the second time, there was what I assumed to be a husband and wife, who were seated and waiting to appear before the judge. They were very nicely dressed and appeared old enough to be my parents (I was 63 years old at the time). I asked myself what in the Hell were these respectable people doing in court? I will never know…

    I have come to the realization that it is best to AVOID any confrontation with ANY police at ANY TIME. At the very least, it will cost time and probably money. At worst, it could cost me my life. I have also come to the conclusion that I live in the most corrupt country in the world. The only difference between corruption in the USA and that of other countries is that “ours” is much more sophisticated.

The legislation directs the State Department to publicly outline a strategy to strengthen the normalization deals, that were FORCED on Arab countries during the last year of Trump regime, established diplomatic and trade relations between Israel and the countries of Sudan, Bahrain, Morocco, and the United Arab Emirates. Sudan has been black mailed and forced into this prison where still people of Sudan, also Moroccans, are protesting.

    Bill Sponsor: Rep. Schneider, Bradley Scott [D-IL-10]

    and 330 traitors from ‘democrats’ and Republicans have signed into this piece that black mails Arab ‘Arab head of state’ to force the Arab population into submission even if torture is needed.

    About 330 – about 75% of the chamber, have signed on to this treasonous bill where should be kicked out of the office. These traitors and their chief must confess that are agents of a foreign country. Someone must tell these traitors, this is NOT your fucking business to force Palestinians and Muslims into submission for a criminal tribe. Is it not enough that you are their stooges. Why are these criminals helping an apartheid entity to expand? The world must held these criminals ACCOUNTABLE. You are fifth column where should be overthrown.

The homeless who aren’t necessarily dopers etc, who don’t want to participate in the slavery system as much as possible, are more righteous than some fizacist, who only serves monopoly. There is no energy now that isn’t monopolized.

    Though the homeless have to use a bit of money, for the most part they are not putting into the slave system. On the point of who gets to say where their supposed money is spent, sooner than people think no one is going to dictate where whatever thin air digital money they think they have is spent. That’s why the cons claimed ‘money’ from paper, shards of paper, then, now thin air money that’s only zeros on their computers. I don’t think roatan is into the con of voting, but am just arguing about who is the moral superior, the fizicist or the homeless, and suggest that soon enough no one but the cons will be dictating what you do or don’t do with any supposed money. They already do now. You can’t buy a predator drone, which is a violation of the second amendment.

    I tried to give you an agree plus a disagree, but the software won’t do that.

    No corporation pays taxes. Corporations are hidden tax collectors for the gov’t. Every cent a corporation hands over to the gov’t to cover their official tax bill was collected from the public as part of the price paid for the corporation’s product or service. If you think about it, it is always the public that pays all taxes.

    To a corporation, a tax is just another cost of doing business and that cost is figured into the price of the product or service put on offer for sale. If the cost of steel goes up, cars become more expensive as a result. The tax is no different.

    Therefore, the corporations that pay no tax are the ones smart enough not to gouge their customers with the tax. Alternatively, their shareholders get a better return on investment which is taxed.

    Taxation is theft. To avoid theft is noble. It is only the terminally stupid that can’t see that.

    As for the political class, they are the smartest criminals in the society. They write the statutes that exempt themselves and issue demands known as “laws” to continuously fleece the public. That they provide some benefits to the public is only to keep them alive and working for their ultimate benefit. The political class isn’t stupid enough to kill the host they parasitize.

    The public, being mostly stupid herd animals that march off to wars and wave flags, support the political class by defining themselves as republicans or democrats and strongly support their team. The public demands that corporations pay their fair share, showing just how stupid they are. They demand that part of the tax they eventually pay is hidden from them disguised as a part of the price for a corporate supplied item.

    I’m a misanthrope and anarchist for very valid reasons that most of the peoples of the world are too stupid to recognize.

    @Richard B

    the more accurate term is “monopoly power” your suggestion points to who owns it.

    very interesting idea to assign blame.. There is no court but their court to hear a case in..No law but their law to indite their guilt, no punishment on anyone’s book that a court can apply to those who destroyed on conviction of their wrongful actions, intentions, corruptions and deeds the outlook, expectation and prior condition of quality of life of the people who were the beneficiaries of the collective efforts of the most prosperous nation of people on this earth, the USA governed America..

    Monopoly power <=is created by the political system to enshrine into law invented rights. Monopoly power is enabled by the law; is enforced by the operations of the government and often serves the few, the law benefits. “Exclusive use” is a “monopoly power”. The beneficiaries of the monopoly powers are the most powerful and wealthy amongst us because they have been the major beneficiaries of the monopoly powers the state gave them and because the with the monopoly powers have used them to drain from the rest of us, our wealth, privileges, immunities, quality of life, and power..

    Monopoly powers are <=invented rights <= made enforceable by the laws the government makes or by the use of force possessed by one over the other. Most often the beneficiaries of such monopoly power are those with the wealth and power.

    It is this monopoly power in "invented self-serving rights" that has caused the problem, it is not the economy of the many, but the economy of the few, that brings us to this dilemma of who shall survive? Those with the wealth or those who have been victimized by those who hold the monopoly powers that have enabled all wealth to be concentrated in the few?

    Luckily it is not necessary to assign blame, to fix the problem addressed in the article and your great comment! Just remove from the constitution and the law <=all power of the state to create monopoly powers that survive into non-state hands or that benefit a few.. It seems to me, any law that would grant an enforceable monopoly power in an "exclusive use of an invented right", everyone else (those without such rights) would be denied the use of the invented right. The rule of mutual exclusion, suggest that give an exclusive right to one, manes all others are denied that right. If an audience of A,B,C,D,E persons is made subject to a law: only persons A and D can speak, then B, C and E are denied the same rights A and D are granted. If the owner of the invented right is granted by law exclusive right to his invented rights; the owner has a monopoly power given to him by the state ( a familiar monopoly power is private ownership of land; evidenced by a deed, and enforced when the deed is recorded in the place the state records private claims of exclusive rights).

    Powers created by law, for a few, seems to me, to challenges the intention of section 1 of the fourteenth amendment " No State…shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    The very definition of "Monopoly powers" in invented rights means one person has those rights and all others are denied them. [see exclusive rights Authors and Inventors for their respective Writings and Discoveries<= Art. 1, Sec 8, [8]]

    Monopoly powers basically deny the rights, opportunities, privileges or immunities of everyone else because only those with the monopoly grant (like land grant) can enjoy those same rights.

    I point to Art. I, Sec. 8, [8] in the Constitution. That section, IMO, has been used to destroy our well being. It allows congress to invent and <=by rule of law create <=monopoly power and<=to distribute that (or those) monopoly powers <=as the congress sees fit; including, but not limited to, allowing those congressionally invented monopoly powers, enabled by the laws congress passes, to be distributed or used for private gain or for non governmental purpose. I believe such laws are by, and on their face, in theory, and in practice, the cause of turmoil in the world and depletion of the greatness America once enjoyed.

    One who owns the exclusive use of a way to make money (monopoly power) has been given the power to block all competition.

    What would be the wealth of software and hardware corporations if they had no patents or copyrights or other exclusive use rights, enforced by the rule of law ( a enforceable monopoly power)? 90% of the assets of most global corporations are monopoly powers: patents and copyrights, which evidence exclusive ownership of rights (right to use or market or make).

    Its just not necessary to assign blame. its necessary only, to fix the problem.

    Congress originally considered 125 proposed amendments in 1789,

    Keep in mind the 125 proposal discussion came only after the enabling document [<=which establishes the rules by which the government can be created ] was changed and a new government had been formed.

    In other words, 115 of the proposals were after thoughts, coming from those not aware of, or not powerful enough, to have been invited to or to have a strong voice at the Philadelphia revolution. After having changed the authority for a government from Articles of Confederation to Constitution, the powerful federalist few were not about to allow any amendments to their constitution that were not part of the conditions that enabled ratification. The Bill of rights were conditions precedent to ratification.

    There was a revolution in 1788, but the name of the government did not change, so most people did not know about the revolution. What happened is a group was sent to Philadelphia to write a new enabling document when the constitutional delegates came home, the same people who sent the group to Philadelphia, ratified the proposed enabling document, an act which enabled the powerful few to toss out the prior enabling document. BTW the name of the defeated enabling document was called The Articles of Confederation and the persons who lost out were the States Righters (also known as the Anti-Federalist). Federalism was designed to quash states rights and to reverse authority to governed<=limited by approval from the voters at the bottom, into authority to governed dictated by the few at top.

    For the decent people in the country, they will only revolt when they are left with no other option. It will take a signal to awaken them all simultaneously to trigger a reaction. That signal will be the hunger in their bellies when the economy crashes and the “law” starts taking their homes, cars, etc.

    When through the process of law the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance. It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.

    Once hyperinflation destroys the Dollar, the natural reaction will be for the current soft military dictatorship in the US to become the hard variety. I contend that since at least the JFK execution, the country has been run by the military and it’s intel agency department with the help from finance and select corporations.

    To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.

    I arrive at this conclusion because DOD has never passed an audit and gets all the money they want appropriated by congress that seems not to care that the military (and HUD) can’t properly account for \$21 Trillion. The elected puppets are window dressing only.

    The military starts the wars with absolutely no intention of winning them. They want a simmering conflict that lasts years to suck as much money out of the population as possible before they go on to the next fiasco that enriches them, wash, rinse, repeat.

    The covid experiment was/is a trial run to gauge the public’s reaction to an invisible threat. When TPTsB finally pull the plug on the economy or some event does it and the dollar becomes worthless, then a real invisible threat like Marburg, Ebola, will be used to prevent mass rioting. The controllers know they can’t win against a 100+ million pissed off people with guns, so they need to psychologically disarm them.

    Like it or not, the hidden US government will use the morons in the military to lock down the country at the appropriate time. For a while, those morons will fire on US citizens because they are actually amoral mercenaries. This will go on for a time till the average grunt realizes that while he’s killing and / or abusing his buddies relatives, his buddy is doing the same to his relatives. At some point, the grunts will turn their weapons on their commanding officers, just like the Vietnam grunts started fragging their superiors. This will take quite some time. In the interim, the controllers will murder untold numbers of decent US residents and continue stealing as much as possible.

    The foreign website in question sounds a lot like Strategic Culture Foundation or SouthFront, two sites which the Treasury Department bitterly accuses of promoting ‘misinformation’ and ‘false narratives.’

    That’s pretty rich, coming from a Biden regime that’s been hyping a Feb 16th Russian invasion of Ukraine for weeks now, with the help of its lapdog, lockstep mainstream media.

    Not only was this preposterous narrative totally wrong, but also Russian foreign ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova openly mocked the US, asking it for a list of invasion dates so she could conveniently schedule her vacation.

    If the US is serious about sanctioning purveyors of misinformation, it should promptly blacklist White House spokesperson Jan Psaki, the WaPo and the New York Slimes, as a first step toward dissipating the toxic kultursmog emanating from the lying liars of the US fedgov and its lickspittle media henchmen.

    All religions and also all nations having fostered big civilizations ask you to choose themselves over humanity. That was especially true for Christianity while it lasted : choosing that religion was essentially renounce to humanism and to common humanity and in particular to all arts ans sciences generally valued as typically human by most of humanity. That was true for traditional India as long as it lasts and still lasts over about half the cultural space it commands : outside the Hindu fold you were less than a dog, you were a pest and the only reason they left you survive was to frighten even the poorest workers who still belong the system nevertheless into realizing seing them that your human being’s status could be lost. That was true for China even during the times it was invaded. Jewishness as someone has rightfully put it is clinging to life at the expense of every other consideration : that’s what characterizes and proletarian and slaves of all other civilizations. Hence the Jews’ urge to blur all distinctions between religions and nations in favour of religious syncretism and race mixing at the priority disadvantage of the White Christian. Whether they like it or not, whether they would do otherwise, their prosperity, their survival is strictly dependent upon their flattering slaves who would do everything for a little more food and money day after day. They are condemned to survive to support revolutionary movements of the kind that promote the rabble. They thus cannot start a war of extermination against humanity, though their interest is in the extermination of all idealists, which will always be a minority. They never had the project of exterminating Russia : on the contrary the people were so slavish that they wanted it to multiply and did achieve it. They had the project of culling off about 10% that would never submit and they did achieve that result more or less, mostly during the course of the Revolutionary Civil War and then of WWII. Germany, on the other hand, had the project of exterminating most of humanity they would meet with in Europe so as to make it look like the ancient Indian Empires.

    I can’t think of any other writer that I admire more than Mr. Giraldi, but like many writers, (like brave Greenwald, for example, or Taibbi, or many of our best writers), he writes about the past, which he tells us he sees in his ‘crystal ball’.

    He’s making ‘predictions’ based on what we need only look around to ‘see’ right in front of us. He predicts what is already happening. No… worse… what has already happened.

    Predicting the past? Gee… Is that what trained CIA analysts are trained to do?… (For those who don’t know, Mr. Giraldi is ex-CIA).

    C’mon, Mr. Giraldi… Coffee’s hot… Smell’s good….

    The Enemy we face is deadly ruthless. This Enemy does horrible things to staggeringly huge numbers of people. As the nation’s Secretary of State, a morally depraved ghoul named Madeline Albright, once told us, (out LOUD, on national TV, fer crissakes), the Enemy we face thinks it’s “worth it” to kill 500,000 children to achieve their own policy objectives.

    Korea. (1-3). Nam (1-2). That’s as many as 5 million right there. (Counting the victims of mass killings is an inexact science, of course; it could have been ‘only’ a couple million or so).

    Surely Mr. Giraldi read Vonnegut, (“Slaughterhouse 5”)? Robert McNamara freely testified, (as if in Nuremberg), to what the US did to the civilian population of Japan. “If we’d lost the war, General Curtis Lemay, and people like himself, would have been tried and executed as war criminals”, McNamara said, on camera, (in ‘Fog of War’), for their fire-bombing strategy that had incinerated as many as 3 million Japanese civilians, BEFORE we dropped the first of two nuclear bombs on them.

    Vonnegut wrote about our horrible war crime in Dresden, of course, which had no other purpose, (the ‘target’ had NO military value), other than to incinerate as many people as possible, and their entire city with them. Vonnegut describes how 500 lb bombs were dropped by the first waves, to create plenty of ‘kindling’, then tens of thousands of finger-sized incendiary devices, (like 4th of July sparklers), were sprinkled generously over the fresh kindling.

    The fires got so hot that automobiles, and other steel machinery, was either melted or just burned to ash. Nothing remained when the fires burned themselves out. There was no way to fight them, of course. They went out when they ran out of fuel. They went out when there was no flesh, or even steel, to burn.

    We got so good at it, so good at creating huge ‘firestorms’ to incinerate civilian men, women, children, and babies in their own homes, that as many as 100,000 people were killed in single raids on Tokyo’s residential neighborhoods, and on the residents of every Japanese city of any size. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were spared from the murderous firebombing, because they were being ‘saved’ for the nuclear attacks, (neither of which killed as many as several of the firebomb raids had).

    6-10 million people. That’s how many this deadly ruthless Enemy, these Ruling Elites that now rule over our nation, and have openly stated that they intend to rule over the entire world, have killed, or directly caused the deaths of, since the end of WW2.

    Mr. Giraldi knows all this. How can he know all this, so perfectly well, while he so proudly ‘predicts’ what is already all around us? How can he know the facts that he knows, and still think these murderous ghoulish fiends, who openly state that killing 500,000 children is “worth it” to control the Middle East for Israel, care at ALL about the writing on an old piece of wrinkled parchment?


    These people do NOT care about our ‘freedom’. They only care about THEIR freedom, (to do whatever they want, whenever they want). They call them, the Ruling Elites, doing whatever they want: ‘democracy’,

    The Enemy we face, these DEADLY ruthless Ruling Elites, want to make the world safe for them to do whatever they want, which they call ‘democracy’.

    While the ranks of the ‘de-platformed’ grow like a cancer on our nation’s soul, Mr. Giraldi predicts that we’re going to lose our freedom of speech? Uhhh…. Hmm… Okey doke, then… It’s kind of a “No sh–, Sherlock”, thing.

    It’s kind of like looking down at Caesar lying in a spreading pool of his own blood at the foot of Pompey’s statue, and saying, “Poor Julius is facing some very stiff political opposition these days”, and then adding a self-promotional blurb, “And remember, you heard it from me first”.

    Trump is a ‘patsy’. The Bolsheviks, the Woke Cult Crazies, are as well. They both think they are ‘in’ on the con. Neither yet know they are ‘patsies’.

    The coming bloodbath has been, and continues to be, perfectly ‘set up’. If Trump is dumb enough to run in ’24, it’ll be him in the center of a spreading red pool. They’ll grab an Antifa goon off his barstool in Brooklyn, to play the Oswald/Sirhan role.

    Trump’s murder will ‘set it off’. The street gutters will run red.

    When the orange glow in the night sky is only a couple blocks away, the public then will not merely tolerate martial law. They will DEMAND it!

    The means of communication are the means of power. I don’t have a crystal ball. This is simply what all the evidence available points to. If they don’t resort to murder, Trump will likely win. What then? A military coup would be my guess. (Already, last time, top (flag rank, in military jargon), officers were refusing to follow the Trump’s direct orders.

    And all the while, as we rush headlong toward these terrible near-term fates, people like Greenwald, Taibbi, and Giraldi are clownishly telling us we are in danger of losing our freedom of speech? And if we lose our first amendment rights, we could even lose our great democracy (all genuflect)?

    C’mon… These people won’t admit to themselves what they already know. The Enemy we face is every bit as morally demented, every bit as deadly ruthless, as any force that rose in Europe in the 1930s.

    Ya know…. The people who complemented the naked Emperor’s New Wardrobe could actually SEE, with their own eyes, right in front of them, that the Emperor was naked.

    Coffee’s hot. Smell’s real good. We got a big job in front of us, folks. How ’bout we quit playing patsy-cake, actually wake up to actual ‘reality’, roll up our sleeves, and get busy?

    ‘Reality’ IS objective. The truth DOES exist. Post-Modernism was a deliberately fomented thought process. It comprises closed loop circular thinking, which its adherents then posit as, well, ‘postulates’, which they then use to ‘prove’ any dang cockamamie thing they want to, (like dingbat Woke Cult Craziness).

    These people plan THAT far ahead. Yea… they KNEW it would take three generations. So they got started right away, planning three generations ahead.

    CRT was planned for a VERY long time. Marcuse was ‘OG’ CIA. He was CIA before the CIA even existed. Before WW2 ended, they already knew of Zworykin’s work, (as did Orwell, as well). They were laying plans for the use of Mass Media before TV was actually rolled out. A propaganda portal directly into every home. Orwell saw it. So did Marcuse, and his buddies, Wild Bill Donovan, and Allen Dulles.

    The events we are witnessing are the culmination of brilliant and long laid plans. The whole thing, the genders wars, race wars, the destruction of the cultural fabric, the shredding of the nation’s deepest values, was being planned, over cigars and old whiskey, before WW2 even ended.

    I was born in ’48. I first saw the famous portrait of Ukrainian Nazi hero Stepan Bandera in the basement of the Ukrainian Orthodox church in Jamaica Plain, Boston. I was 16, and a local roofer named Romanchuk pulled it out of his wallet. I was being recruited.

    The CIA was importing Bandera’s followers in the days immediately following WW2. They were helping Ukrainian Nazis immigrate into the US, and get settled in jobs, and living among communities of Ukrainian immigrants.

    What we now see happening now in Ukraine is the culmination of plans laid before WW2 had ended.

    When the public DEMANDS martial law, people like Phil Giraldi won’t even be able to send a email.

    The means of communication are the means of power.

    These people, this DEADLY ruthless Enemy, these Ruling Elites, DO care about our freedom of speech, and they are plenty smart enough to know they must take it away from us. They already have. Squeezed into a Media Ghetto that they are rapidly shrinking.

    Freedom of speech no longer exists when people look furtively over our shoulders before we dare speak, because we might be ‘canceled’, we might lose our jobs, our homes, our families, if we say the wrong thing.

    Meant to hit THANKS and as luck would have it, I’m all out of corrections.
