Once upon a time in the United States there was a consensus among national politicians that there were two areas where there should be a unified approach to policy. They were national security and foreign policy, both of which involved other nations, which made desirable a perception of unity on the part of the president and his cabinet, no matter who was in power. That meant that dissent from individual politicians should never rise to the level of pitting one party against another on the basic Establishment view of what was desirable in terms of U.S. national interests.

That viewpoint has survived at least somewhat intact to this day, even weathering the turmoil of Vietnam, but the apple cart has been somewhat upset by new players in the game, namely the various federal bureaucracies, to include law enforcement, intelligence and the Pentagon. The 2016 election demonstrated that the FBI and CIA in particular were willing to get involved in the game of who should be president, and in so doing they compromised major foreign policy and national security norms, which produced Russiagate as well as the wildly inflated current claims being leveled against China and Russia and even Iran looking ahead to elections in November.

As noted above, the Establishment view on foreign and national security policy was based on the principle that there must always be a united front when dealing with situations that are being closely watched by foreigners. If a cabinet secretary or the president says something relating to foreign or military affairs it should be the unified view of both the administration and the loyal opposition. Unfortunately, with President Donald Trump that unanimity has broken down, largely because the chief executive either refuses to or is incapable of staying on script. The most recent false step involved the origin of the corona virus, with the intelligence community stating that there was no evidence that the virus was “man made or genetically modified” in a lab followed by the president several hours later contradicting that view asserting that he had a “high degree of confidence” that the coronavirus originated in a laboratory in Wuhan, China based on secret information that he could not reveal.

There has also been reports that the Trump White House has in fact been pushing the intelligence community (IC) to “hunt for evidence” linking the virus to the Wuhan laboratory, suggesting that the entire China gambit is mostly political, to have a scapegoat available in case the troubled handling of the virus in the United States becomes a fiasco and therefore a political liability. This pressure apparently prompted an additional statement from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence saying: “The IC will continue to rigorously examine emerging information and intelligence to determine whether the outbreak began through contact with infected animals or if it was the result of an accident at a laboratory in Wuhan.”

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who has claimed without providing any details that there is “overwhelming evidence” that coronavirus came out of the Wuhan laboratory, is reportedly leading the push to demonize China. He and other administration officials have expressed their frustration over the C.I.A.’s apparent inability to come up with a definitive explanation for the outbreak’s origin. C.I.A. analysts have reportedly responded that there is no evidence to support any one theory with “high confidence” and they are afraid that any equivocating response will immediately be politicized. Some analysts noted that their close monitoring of communications regarding the Wuhan lab suggest that the Chinese government itself does not regard the lab as a source of the contagion.

To be sure, any intelligence community document directly blaming the Chinese government for the outbreak would have a devastating impact on bilateral relations for years to come, a consequence that Donald Trump apparently does not appreciate. And previous interactions initiated by Trump administration officials suggest that Washington might use its preferred weapon sanctions in an attempt to pressure other nations to also hold China accountable, which would multiply the damage.

Given what is at stake in light of the White House pressure to prove what might very well be unprovable, many in the intelligence community who actually value what they do and how they do it are noticeably annoyed and some have even looked for allies in Congress, where they have found support from the Pentagon over Administration decision making that is both Quixotic and heavily politicized.

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith of Washington has responded to the concerns expressed to him by both the military and intelligence communities, admitting that he is “…worried about a culture developing” where many senior officials are now making decision not on the merits of the case but rather out of fear that they will upset the president if they do not choose correctly.

While the intelligence agencies are concerned over the fabrication of a false consensus over the coronavirus, similar to what occurred regarding Iraq’s alleged possession of weapons of mass destruction in 2002-3, the Defense Department is more concerned that fundamental mechanisms that have been in place since the Second World War are now under attack, including how the military maintains discipline and punishes officers and enlisted men who have deviated from established policies.

Appealing to his base of support, Trump has notoriously pardoned Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher, a Navy seal who was clearly guilty of murder in Afghanistan, and even met with him afterwards in the White House. Regarding Gallagher, Senate Armed Services Committee Democrat Jack Reed of Rhode Island said in a November that “The White House’s handling of this matter erodes the basic command structure of the military and the basic function of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.”

Trump is now meddling in the treatment of Navy Captain Brett Crozier, who was relieved of his command after he went public with complains about the spread of coronavirus on his ship. In early April the president said “I may just get involved.” In the military services such interference even has a name, “undue command influence.” Clearly, the White House is seeking to squeeze every bit of political advantage it can from the Crozier story.

Congressman Smith has also described the situation in a colorful fashion as “The president has made it clear as far as he is concerned the single most important attribute that anybody in the federal government can have is a willingness to kiss the president’s ass as often as possible” which “undermines your ability to be competent, to make decisions based on what is the right thing to do as opposed to what is going to feed the president’s limitless ego.”

To be sure, Donald Trump is not about to change and if he is re-elected one can only expect four more years of the same, but public confidence in government can only be maintained if there is at least some belief that decision making is a rational process. Trump has clearly turned that axiom on its head in his tendency to blame other parts of the government for what are manifestly his own failings. His characterization of senior officials, many of whom he himself appointed, as “losers” casts the entire government in a bad light. Whether the strategy of divide and conquer within one’s own administration will work out for Trump will certainly be decided in November.

    The real issue is don’t lie us into a war that puts US servicemen into a shithole where around every corner is a potential assassin waiting to shoot you or blow you up. I am not going to second guess what somebody would do in that situation (one that I have never been in), especially when this case (out of all the other atrocities) was a political PR job to say – see Iraqi’s the US is a nation of laws, blah, blah, blah. Blaming this on Trump is misplaced. As for the Uniform Code of Military Justice, it is about as fair as the civilian courts are.

  2. Rich says:

    Chief Petty Officer Gallagher was acquitted of murder in his trial. It is wrong to write he “was clearly guilty of murder.” As a former military officer, Mr Giraldi should know that the President is the Commander-in-Chief of the US military, as set by Article II Section 2 of the US Constitution, and has the right to direct it in whatever (legal) manner he chooses. The fact that some, not all, career members politically oppose this president, doesn’t make their opinions more important, or more right, than those members of the military who agree with him. In fact, if not for obviously political officers, it’s very possible that Trump would have been in position to have removed the US military from some of its foreign commitments and developed a stronger relationship with the Russians. It’s the leftist careerists who are preventing many of his proposals.

    Correct, yet many anti establishment proponents worship Carlson’s presumed talking truth to power meme…when in reality he defiles the intelligence agencies when they promote Russia bad, and gives complete confidence, when they promote China bad…with no substantiation.

    I think its fine they want evidence. I think it’s a feather in the cap to hear that the CIA stands firm that as of this date, no evidence exists that they want to plant a confidence flag in.

    There are so many things wrong with the discussions about Vietnam, that I will have to consider long and hard if in fact, your principle survived the conflict. Liberals claim that Pres Nixon sabotaged the negotiations — nonsense. They said the same regarding Pres. Reagan.

    The criticisms of Mr. Trump are valid.

    But does Dr. Giraldi believe that this Chinadidit episode is aberrant, something that hasn’t happened since the concocted war on Iraq? That the “IC” he as an alumnus wants to see sympathetically is full of honorable people who never did anything wrong on behalf of Uncle Sam when Mr. Obama was in the White House?

    This column reminds me of the few from Mr. Lang published here a while back. He was boldly critical of those currently running things in Washington, but bristled (and ultimately ran away) when commenters wanted to not thank him for his service during the Vietnam War.

    Exceptionalia and its “IC” haven’t been furthering the interests of the American people for a long, long time.

    Professor Ian Lipkin had been invited to China regularly since the SARS outbreak of 2003 , and he had been begging the Chinese to shut down their wet markets for well over a decade. Lipkin says that we will never know what the Chinese knew about COVID-19 or when they knew it. Pompeo says the Chinese destroyed their earliest samples of the COVID 19 virus (SARS-CoV-2). There is a legal principle called adverse inference whereby one is entitled to draw conclusions adverse to the concerned party from their silence or failure to produce requested evidence, or active concealment of it. As for Trump, it has been said that only those who do not take him seriously take him literally. He is a rhetorician.

    DNI statement from last Friday is the virus is not man made but could have come from a lab. How does that work?

    If the virus is not man made that means the virus naturally went from bats to humans without alteration. Then wouldn’t the spread have started in a rural area with bat caves and then spread to the city by people to people transmission? If it’s naturally occurring what are the odds that it first existed in a lab or made its way from bat cave to lab without infecting humans and then accidentally after a leak started spreading in the city?

    Trump has had plenty of opportunities to fight back and push his agenda but he’s used the shrill #Resistance pushback as a convenient excuse for doing nothing on his signature issues of immigration, trade and ending the Forever Wars.

    He’s no more a national populist or working man’s patriot than W or Obama and his administration, particularly as shown by his personnel, is nothing more than Bush III.

    The CIA is little more than an ongoing Criminal Enterprise (including massive Drug Dealing/Trafficking and Murder) and has been since its inception, before that their precursor creeps at OSS murdered Gen. Patton because he was going to run for President to try and take on/out the massive Communist infiltration in the USA Government that Stalin had working for him, the actual assassin actually came out years later at some spook reunion and admitted Bill Donovan had him do it, there’s a book written about it…. — the Citizens of the USA would be much better off without an “Intelligence Community” like the one that ALLOWED 911 to happen, probably participated in it actually, and which profits off having forever Wars — John Brennan was a career Officer and the Head/Director of the CIA.

    I agree, I have had more than my fill of Dr. Phil. I do think he should have some kind of late night TV talk show where no one can hear or see him.

    He is such an apologist for the CIA that I cannot continue after reading a couple paragraphs.

    He also has many if not most things very very incorrect.

    Since the end of WW II, the US has been the most active Mass Murderer on Earth. Frankly it clearly started with the vaporization of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. After that a million dead here a million dead there, who counting anyway. You know its a conspiracy theory, a leftest or whatever talking point, no one died that did not deserve it.

    I certainly do not have any answers, but then when things are so totally out of control and really beyond human ability to right the ship and fix things, its almost certain that complete chaos will be the ultimate solution and a reboot of the planet.

    I was in Romania in 1984 at a scientific meeting co-sponsored by the Romanian and US National Science Foundation. The meeting was in honor of George Palade an American/Romanian Nobel Prize Winner in Biology and Medicine. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Emil_Palade
    Palade’s mother was still alive at the time and he wanted to visit her, and the meeting really was a way to funnel some outside money to the Romanian Institute of Pathology run by the Siminescu’s who had been Palade’s students and proteges at Yale and Rockefeller University. No other country would exchange the Romanian money, so if they had a NSF grant they would have dollars to buy scientific reagents and supplies. When asked about whether we should fund the Institute I told the US NSF official it was like a candle in a dark cave and the only light that I saw during my 1 week visit. (So when I hear nonsense about the US NIH funding the Wuhan Virology Lab, I have to say FU to the assclown self serving politicians.) Better to be friends and genuine allies than killing each other. Just my 2 cents worth.

    Nicolae Ceaușescu was the President of Romania at the time. It was the most surreal and terrifying week of my life. In Bucharest the people on the streets had no expression whatsoever. No smiling not much talking, just like sheep or cattle. Secret Police were everywhere and we had to be with our handlers for our own safety. In a car we would be stopped many times and our driver would get out and talk to the plainclothes agent for a while. Then after a few minutes our driver would produce a document, maybe even signed by Ceausescu himself and we would be off. Ceausescu was ruthless and even the Russians did not mess with him since he was more totalitarian than anyone else. He and his wife were shot by firing squad on Christmas Day 1989. When I was there in 1984 there were still the un-repaired ruins from the Nazi bombings during WW II. Just a reminder to the populace of how bad things can get.

    I only give that background because what I see in Albuquerque, NM today reminds me an awful lot of what I saw in Bucharest in 1984. Mindless, terrified, clueless people. I was told I had to wear a mask to go into Costco, company policy now. Did not have to wear a mask in the two grocery stores I went into just an hour earlier. I saw 2 women transferring groceries or something like that in the Post Office parking lot. Both wearing masks and gloves, not getting near each other even though they obviously knew each other. I thought they were working with plutonium or some other most deadly substance in the Universe. Totally insane and totally unnecessary.

    I have not seen anything like this except in Romania and East Germany before the collapse of the USSR. I think we should all be very concerned about how this is going to be rectified back to normality. I don’t think Dr. Phil’s essays really do anything positive for the situation and since he claims he worked for the CIA he may not be capable of thinking in a normal and human fashion.

    Good Luck to all.

    I do not consider myself someone who is part of any Organized Religion but it is essential the Houses of Worship be reopened immediately for the sake of American Society.

    Giraldi has a serious credibility gap concerning Trump.

    TDS blinded Giraldi claimed that Trump said CV19 was a “hoax”, which Trump never said. See Giraldi taken to task on that here: https://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/punishing-americas-enemies/?showcomments#comment-3791018

    – TDS controlled Giraldi blew it again about Trump when he said:
    “The latest mis-spoke, now being framed by Trump’s press secretary as sarcasm, involved a presidential suggestion that one might consider injecting or imbibing disinfectant to treat the disease, either of which could easily prove lethal.”
    See Giraldi shredded on that lie here: https://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/america-the-victim-are-enemies-lining-up-for-revenge-in-the-wake-of-the-coronavirus/#comment-3871644

    –TDS hampered Giraldi is wrong yet again when he said:
    Trump’s recent claim that he has the sole authority to shut down or open up the country is clearly unconstitutional based on Article 10 and his warning that he will use his executive authority to adjourn the continuing virtual session of congress to enable him to approve hundreds of pending recess appointments plausibly qualifies as impeachable. ”
    – When in fact Trump has delegated the shut down – opening up to the various state Govenors at a time of their choosing.

    Philip Giraldi needs to do better, but his case of the Trump Derangement Syndrome has the better of him.

    The virus spread to humans years and possibly decades ago based on the Genomic Sequence differences between the current Covid 19 virus and the bat viruses that have been studied to date. The bat viruses that have been studied to date cannot infect human cells, to my knowledge. In past events where a Corona virus changed to become capable of infecting and replicating in humans it past through some intermediary host. At least that is the current model.

    So this virus did not just jump from bats to humans but may have gone through this other Asian mammal that is similar to an armadillo. That is what the experts think at the current time.

    But, it is clear that the virus evolved in an environment that had a functioning immune system since it evades that system. This cannot be created in any laboratory only in a natural environment. That’s why it took many years to gain the mutations that make it what it is today.

    I spent a large part of my scientific career making genetically engineered viruses, cells, bacterial and mice. Its very difficult to do and almost impossible to make something that does what you want and forms a stable genetic alteration. The hosts organism has many mechanisms, most of them unknown to get rid of DNA it knows does not belong. Been doing that for billions of years, it would be an essential function to have a stable life form.

    OK, guys. To draw an analogy to a card game:
    The Flynn affair has ended. Both sides (Trump & Establishment) have laid down their cards. Trump wins. The only remaining question is whether he goes for the throat.

    Remember, he pretty much has to. The Establishment has made it clear that Trump will be attacked after he leaves office, and the Flynn affair shows that the attack would have nothing to do with law or Trump’s actions.

    Still, has to isn’t “did”.

    So Trump’s remarks on “scum” and “treason” are important — he’s going for the throat. Moreover, the Establishment has been weakened enough by inept COVID-19 preparation and reaction, and the general public so afraid that the Establishment (what Feifer called the “Anonymous Authority”) will eat them next that a chance to rid themselves of it will receive considerable backing, and the Establishment’s urban power base become so — well, Hellish, that Trump actually has a fair chance. If he pulls the string the right way, prosecutes serially and follows up on facts uncovered by the trials, follows up Epstein’s trainl he could discredit/imprison a good fraction of the Establishment’s leaders and personnel. They can see that as clearly as I can, and some of them, at least, will try to fight rather than simply lose. They’ve always succeeded by all-out offensive, know little else.

    Awhile back I mentioned that US political stability would drop considerably by early July (by 2020-07-07, as I recall). Looks like that’s really going to happen.

    So — Please do your best to stay safe. Remember, this won’t do the food supply chain any good, and that home invasions won’t stop just because things are a bit chaotic.

    How about you get a clue instead of telling everyone else to get one. Correct, intelligence agencies are malevolent, sadistic, undemocratic criminal scoundrels but then so too is Donald Trump. They want him where he is right now, otherwise he would have been Six Feet Under five years prior. The intelligence agencies never would have allowed Trump to ascend if they didn’t figure his presidency would be useful in some way. Trump, no doubt unwittingly, is playing the role they want him to play but that doesn’t make him any less culpable.

    Chief Petty Officer Gallagher was acquitted of murder in his trial.

    Nice try, covering for a murderer. Pretty sick to hold this up as “evidence,” when the acquittal was based on one of his teammates changing his tune only at the trial, claiming that he was actually the one who killed the victim, a “mercy killing” after Gallagher had stabbed him in the neck. He had never said that during the long process before the trial, when he and the other teammates all had said Gallagher was a murderer. And the jury even acknowledged that Gallagher stabbed the kid in the neck – but still claimed this wasn’t “murder”.

    https://original.antiwar.com/john_dangelo/2020/03/08/the-devils-we-dont-know/

    Importantly, Eddie Gallagher’s case only came to light when his team began speaking out. Reports spanning several deployments from the guys he was fighting alongside demonstrate Gallagher’s complete disregard for innocent life in US-occupied countries. Stories ranged from shots being fired at unwitting passersby, shooting a little girl in a tense ISIS commander standoff, and the backbreaking straw of the dead ISIS fighter in the photograph he violently stabbed. When we consider the self-proclaimed and internally fortified bonds of fraternal organizations like the SEALs, much like police and firefighters, the gravitas of defiant voices becomes even more credible.

    ……………

    Shortly after the unnamed ISIS combatant’s death and photo-op, Eddie sent the picture to a fellow SEAL with the text, “Good story behind this, got him with my hunting knife.” In the 60 Minutes interview, Gallagher reassures us, “’I was trying to make it look tough, yeah,’ Gallagher said. ‘I know how bad it looks when it gets out into the public, which it never was supposed to.’” What then, haven’t we seen? How many trophy walls are adorned with photos of gloved hands holding the limp heads of Middle Eastern men? How many forward-deployed lips are sealed? With such a defense, what are the sins of the devils we don’t know?

    …………….

    Several SEALs aside from Scott maintained Gallagher did attack the kid, offering grisly details of Eddie stabbing him, “in the jugular at least twice,” with blood spitting out like, “a baby throwing up.” The jury was apparently satisfied those injuries were not life-threatening or worthy of conviction.

Trump absolutely had to break this collection of Globalists, liberal Democrats, and corrupt bottom feeding slime. To pretend that these people were “apolitical professionals” is absurd and Giraldi knows it. Ambassador Grenell is th best thing to happen to the intelligence community in decades and I hope he has the guts to dismiss (without medals or handshakes) a large percentage of the senior intel community executives.

  45. The core problem is that Donald Trump is a wholly owned asset of the Likud party, but is merely a figurehead. Serious decisions are being made by a cabal of Jewish appointees like Steve Mnuchin and Jared Kushner and their organized crime connected partners.

    Donald Trump is an undisciplined carnival barker who nevertheless is the only one who can rally any support among the American population via his personality and false promises. So the administration is constantly trying to put out fires set by the President’s undisciplined tongue and Twitter account.

    It would be amusing if the fate of our country and the world wasn’t in the balance. Trump’s only real job is to distract everyone from the looting operation going on as the Empire falls and new powers like China and Russia rise.

    When it’s over we’ll figure out how much damage has been done. Fortunately, it seems unlikely there will be much “hot war” in the near future but the Trump administration is busy destroying America’s credibility and international standing in the short term interests of Netanyahu, Likud and Jewish financial cabals.

  49. Once upon a time in the United States there was a consensus among national politicians that there were two areas where there should be a unified approach to policy. They were national security and foreign policy, both of which involved other nations, which made desirable a perception of unity on the part of the president and his cabinet, no matter who was in power. That meant that dissent from individual politicians should never rise to the level of pitting one party against another on the basic Establishment view of what was desirable in terms of U.S. national interests.

    I loved that opening, Mr. Giraldi. You exude pure nostalgia for those good old days of unanimity on those things that really matter to our entrenched elites, e.g. bigger profits, bribes, influence, careers. Like, say, 2004 when, after four years of rampant Ziocon lunacy had destroyed both nearly defenseless Afghanistan and Iraq for no particular reason, the loyal opposition candidate John Tweedledie Kerry and the incumbent George W. Tweedledum Bush pretended to battle one another ferociously with exactly the same “national security” and “foreign policy” platform, so neither one could possibly lose.

    After all, we deplorables and our deep state had to stick together then for a Global War on Terror. Thank heavens, that mysterious 911 caper had come out of the blue just in the nick of time to replace the 40-year Cold War on the Soviet Union, after the bad Russians had inconveniently turned into good non-communist Russians. But, of course, things got complicated when some of CIA-friendly Al Qaeda terrorists then morphed into our occasional ISIS allies in Syria and Iraq. Nevermind, time now for a new, improved enemy, like the invisible germs said to be causing the media/government p(l)andemic now replacing freedom and democracy with masks and lockdowns.

    Gore Vidal touched on this quintessential trick of American governance by quoting the first cold warrior, Harry Truman, who said it was easy, you just scare the pants off the citizens with the dire threat of some foreign enemy, and the rest is easy. I’m told that analysts in your old IC alphabet company even pinpointed the last century’s biggest disaster for U.S. political cohesion — the untimely abdication of the Soviet enemy in 1990. Some credible new threat had to be found pronto. Now that the terrorist thing hasn’t panned out and the second Russia menace has fizzled, I guess we’ll just have to recruit China. Will that be enough to restore precious Beltway policy unanimity in a bankrupt country looking more and more like Humpty Dumpty after his fall?

    The work in question was a type of gain-of-function research that involved taking wild viruses and passing them through live animals until they mutate into a form that could pose a pandemic threat. Scientists used it to take a virus that was poorly transmitted among humans and make it into one that was highly transmissible—a hallmark of a pandemic virus. This work was done by infecting a series of ferrets, allowing the virus to mutate until a ferret that hadn’t been deliberately infected contracted the disease.

    The 2016 election demonstrated that the FBI and CIA in particular were willing to get involved in the game of who should be president, and in so doing they compromised major foreign policy and national security norms, which produced Russiagate …

    Yes, all true..

    the Establishment view on foreign and national security policy was based on the principle that there must always be a united front when dealing with situations that are being closely watched by foreigners. If a cabinet secretary or the president says something relating to foreign or military affairs it should be the unified view of both the administration and the loyal opposition. Unfortunately, with President Donald Trump that unanimity has broken down

    *”Unfortunately”* ?

    With all due respect, are you out of your mind, Sir?

    largely because the chief executive either refuses to or is incapable of staying on script.

    Perhaps the most succinctly stated defense of president Trump I’ve ever read. And you say it in a disparaging way.

    The most recent false step involved the origin of the corona virus, with the intelligence community stating …

    Dude, since I guess you haven’t been paying attention, “the intelligence community” of this nation has less credibility than even the NYT, (if that’s even possible).

    Good Lord, is Mr. Giraldi angling to get his job back at the American Cuckservative?

    blaming the Chinese government for the outbreak would have a devastating impact on bilateral relations for years to come, a consequence that Donald Trump apparently does not appreciate.

    The Chinese government looks out for the interests of the Chinese government first, and the Chinese people second. The interests of the American people are very low on their list.

    In fact, no one has had the interests of the American people on their list for decades, and indeed, quite the contrary. And our close ties to China have not helped the lot of the average American one whit, there again- quite the contrary. So perhaps Trump is right about a more ‘arms length’ approach to sending our jobs and technology to China. China is not the enemy, but for once, it would be amazing if our federal government stopped being the enemy of the American people, which it OBVIOSLY has been now for at least as long as I’ve been alive.

    Washington might use its preferred weapon sanctions in an attempt to pressure other nations to also hold China accountable, which would multiply the damage.

    If it did so, and if history is any precedent, then it would be doing so for the same motivation that it does every thing else, because Israel wants it to. Duh.

    the White House pressure to prove what might very well be unprovable, many in the intelligence community who actually value what they do and how they do it are noticeably annoyed and some have even looked for allies in Congress, where they have found support from the Pentagon over Administration decision making that is both Quixotic and heavily politicized.

    Mr. G, you worked for the CIA, and we here didn’t, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t all know very well indeed, exactly what it is that the IC does. (Tell lies and destabilize governments and assassinate for the (((regime)))). Duh.

    How many times have we heard ‘all sixteen intelligence agencies all agree that ‘babies were taken out of incubators’, or Saddam has WMD, or Assad attacked his own people, or Russia hacked the election, or God knows how many times they’ve trotted out that tiresome (shit-stained) mantra about what ‘all sixteen intelligence agencies agrees upon’.

    They’re traitors and liars, Mr. G. Up and down the line. Scumbags of the very worst sort. And you act like they still have a shred of credibility. It’s astounding!

    OK, what have you done with Phil, evil twin? Since when has the IC ever given a rat’s ass about the ‘merits of the case’?!

    They’re whores, Sir. Have you ever heard of a guy named John F. Kennedy?

    While the intelligence agencies are concerned over the fabrication of a false consensus

    Why, because for once their lies and fabrications aren’t being believed anymore?

    similar to what occurred regarding Iraq’s alleged possession of weapons of mass destruction in 2002-3, the Defense Department is more concerned that fundamental mechanisms that have been in place since the Second World War are now under attack, including how the military maintains discipline and punishes officers and enlisted men who have deviated from established policies.

    Ahhh..

    OK, I’m finally starting to get it. Sorry for being so slow.

    This is a sardonic mocking of the IC! And the entire lied-about narrative we’ve all marinated since WWII. I of all people should have seen that coming.

    Kudos Sir, you had me there for a while!

    Navy Captain Brett Crozier, who was relieved of his command after he went public with complains about the spread of coronavirus on his ship. In early April the president said “I may just get involved.”

    Every decent person in America wanted Captain Crozier exonerated. Yep, this is an oblique, veiled paean to the president.

    Who’d a thunk it’d come from Dr. G?!

    To be sure, Donald Trump is not about to change and if he is re-elected one can only expect four more years of the same, but public confidence in government can only be maintained if there is at least some belief that decision making is a rational process.

    “public confidence in government’, as if that exists. And since it hasn’t in my lifetime, Dr. G. is using his high-powered mind to psychologically reverse / point out that Trump is the alternative to our current and long lasting “public confidence in government” and all the respect we Americans have in our “intelligence community’.

    It’s pure genius.

    His implying that what we all really need is to return to putting our faith in John Brennan and James Comey, and things will return to ‘normal’. Hehe.

    My hat is off to you Sir.

    His characterization of senior officials, many of whom he himself appointed, as “losers” casts the entire government in a bad light. Whether the strategy of divide and conquer within one’s own administration will work out for Trump will certainly be decided in November.

    There is a 1980s made for TV movie “A Very British Coup” (still available on Youtube I believe) that, while pertaining to British politics, I found fascinating, because it was too close to real life to be an accident.

Many former Trump supporters do not realize the power of the state and federal courts to make and overturn laws. And it’s not Rush Limbaugh’s out of control liberal judges.

And they’ve hired the 25-30 year old next generation of anti White jews and liberals.

    Giraldi knows this. Or he should. He was supervised when he started by my generation of anti White liberal White federal managers.

    Most UNZ readers call it the deep state. I was there when it began.

    No way Trump could change it in 3 years especially with 2 of those years spent fighting impeachment.

    America does not have a 3 part balance of power government. We are governed by the judiciary. It’s been that way since 1804.

    Only 2 presidents disobeyed judicial orders. Jackson did not cease from sending some Indian tribes west of the Mississippi. That was a kertuffle.

    Lincoln disobeyed judicial orders by suspending habeaus corpus for 4 years and jailing about 40 thousand northern dissidents. The Supreme Court ordered him to the institute habeas corpus. He refused and there was nothing the satanic scumbag supremes could do

    They were the only ones who defied judicial orders

    Elected legislators are a total waste. The courts make the laws they want to make. The courts overturn laws and government orders and procedures they don’t like.

    We might as well get rid of Congress and state legislatures and just let the courts do what the want. They already do,

    There’s a lot wrong with the government at all
    Leveled due to infiltration by White hating liberals. It’s been going on about 60 years now.

    Trump not any president can’t change a thing

    He wants to get out of Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq but the Deep State and the dual nationals won’t let him. He wants to partner with Russia against China – but the Jewish media and Neocons hate Russia and sabotaged his efforts.

    Can we stop with this narrative? It’s designed 100% to just give Trump open-ended cover for the bait-and-switch campaign he ran. Troop levels went up in Afghanistan. Whitney Webb had a brilliant article detailing how Trump tried to extort the Iraqi government over electrical grid contracts and oil revenue. Trump ordered the bombing of Syria based on the same fraudulent garbage the Obama administration was peddling, almost certainly hoping his manufactured cult of personality would be enough to sell it. His administration has sent billions of dollars worth of heavy weapons to the Ukrainian occupied government and staked out a hostile position towards European countries participating in the expansion of the Nordstream pipeline. Far from “pro-Russia”, Trump is one of the most anti-Russia presidents we’ve had in quite some time and that lines up with the race-hate proclivities of his adopted parasite tribe.

    Trump is a successful executive. He knows that if he did as you suggest, the organizations so treated would entirely cease to function, and even the general public would be frightened. He’s built up a very strong position and support base, and now he can treat the worst of the worst as malefactors under the law, with the approval of the general public, and let the next batch of level two or three administrators deal with the rest as “new brooms that sweep clean”. Done correctly, it gets just as many of the bad guys as immediate action, can sometimes make the neutral useless into useful people, and doesn’t shock the organization into immobility It’s good technique, even Machiavelli recommended it.

    “Kill them all and let God sort it out” has a ring to it, but it is very seldom a successful policy.

    OTH, the post USSR airline companies in the RF generally had a rule: no former Aeroflot employees. Worked for them, and we could see that here if the Trump/Establishment conflict produces enough collateral damage to disband existing governmental organizations / government supported corporations/businesses.

Wet markets have been criticized for years as likely sources of dangerous zoonoses yet China continued to permit their use. We know the Chinese authorities attempted to hide the existence of the epidemic and allowed millions of residents of Wuhan to leave the city for New Year celebrations, thus ensuring the epidemic would be a pandemic. There have also been news reports that the biolab in question had been criticized for lax safety standards even while they experimented with highly dangerous viruses. Take your pick.

    To pretend that these people were “apolitical professionals” is absurd and Giraldi knows it.

    You can take that to the bank, Sir.

    I hope he has the guts to dismiss (without medals or handshakes) a large percentage of the senior intel community executives. Ditto for Trump and the military.

    Every single thinking person of sound charactor with hopes for their children, agrees with you.

    And no doubt so does Dr. G. He just has a very sardonic way of saying it.

    We’ve had traitors and scumbags running the CIA ever since the coup on November 22, 1963.

    They’ve brought narcotics to this nation’s young people, while fomenting wars and strife. They’ve worked hand and hand with the (((media))) to lie to the American public, (and beyond, see Ulfkotte, Udo).

    Our ‘intelligence community’ knew about the USS Liberty, and helped to cover it up.

    It was involved with the assassination of JFK at the highest levels. George H. Bush was one of them, and we all remember his ‘babies from the incubators’.

    Worst of all, it was the Intelligence Community that helped the neocons perpetrate and then cover up 9/11.

    Anyone who could pretend that they are patriots (I almost couldn’t even write that word, it’s an abomination to use it and the IC in the same sentence), are either dumber than a box of rocks, or lying.

    How am I wrong about that?

    Who, in their right mind, would suggest that the CIA / FBI / ATF / DEA are anything other than out-of-control thugs, especially after Waco and Ruby Ridge? And especially after 9/11.

    They tried to take down a duly elected president of the United States. And I would consider that a hanging offence, if true.

    From what Mr. G has said in this article:

    The 2016 election demonstrated that the FBI and CIA in particular were willing to get involved in the game of who should be president, and in so doing they compromised major foreign policy and national security norms, which produced Russiagate…

    It is true, and we all know it.

    I suspect that Mr. G. knows a lot of former and current members of the CIA and others in the IC.

    And that is why he’s trying to make it sound like he hates Trump as much as they no doubt do. But I love the way he went about it, by pitting Trump’s status and an outsider to the Establishment, against the entrenched forces of the IC and Pentagon, to point out why the deepstate hates him and wants him destroyed.

    Just imagine how the former Secretary of the Navy feels about Trump today.

    He joins Comey and Brenan and McCabe and Stzrok and Muller and Vindman and all those entrenched diplomats and other scum who abused the levers of federal law enforcement power for their own personal and political agendas going back at least to the Bush/Clinton years.

    And all of them are fuming with apoplectic rage at Trump, who’s exposed the rot, and has taken down a host of deepstate rats.

    Hate Trump all you want, but how can you not at least applaud him for that?

    – You mean Trump’s planned withdrawal from Syria after Obama’s invasion.

    – What Syrian oil has the US ‘kept’? None.

    More facts you ignore:
    – Obama was the first president in US history to be at war for every single day of his eight year presidency.
    – Obama approved military action in seven countries, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria and Yemen as well as special operations on a smaller scale all over the globe.
    – Obama was the first and only president to spend his Tuesday mornings in meetings with his security staff drawing up “kill lists” that included American citizens who were somewhere overseas and considered dangerous.
    Acting off that list, he was the first and only president to actually execute American citizens without any due process using lethal drones. Anwar al-Awlaki and his son Abdulrahman were targeted and killed in Yemen together with another American citizen, and four other citizens were also executed under Obama in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
    – Obama made a famous “New Beginning” speech in Cairo in June 2009 that led directly to his being awarded a Nobel Peace prize later that year. He promised to reach out to the Muslim world and improve relations with Washington but promptly ignored what he had said for the following seven years, preferring to take the easy path by deferring to Israel’s expressed interests.

    Well Geo, I happen to think that our ‘intelligence community’, and Establishment, are and have been our greatest threat.

    Jewish supremacist Zionists work for the goals of Jewish supremacy and Zionism, but the Gentile members of our ‘intelligence community’, who would facilitate the assassination of our president, and cover it up even today, and participate in the lies being told to the American people and beyond, in order to squander untold oceans of Gentile blood and mountains of Gentile treasure, for the benefit of the Jewish supremacist state, are the most dangerous scum on the planet today. If you love your children and want them to have a future.

    A lot of people would say we shouldn’t care who’s in the White House, because it doesn’t matter. They’re all the same. But if Dr. G.’s article here says anything, it says that it does matter who’s in the White House. That a president can have an actual effect on our destiny, depending on whether or not he plays ball with the Establishment, or goes against them.

    You have no idea how much I love it when I hear media personalities pull their hair out, over Trump’s characterization of the media as the enemy of the people.

    You can tell by the way they say his name, the hatred is visceral. When Bill Maher talks about the Deplorables as being the Nazis who voted for Hitler, I want to see his face on election night.

    One of the biggest gifts I’ve ever been given, was watching the tears and existential angst on Nov. 21st, 2016. Especially and particularly when she couldn’t even come out and concede, she was so eviscerated.

    There is a rift in our society, Geo. Some people liked it when Waco burned, because the people inside were dissident Christians, who thumbed their noses at the Fiend.

    Some people liked it when Channon Christian and her boyfriend got ‘the treatment’, and would like my daughters and sons to get the same.

    I’ve come to understand that there is a chasm in our society that isn’t just wide, but tectonic.

    The ‘people’ who did that to Channon or Jonathan Foster, did so out of hatred, and their methods were crude. But the hatred the PTB have, is just as real, and just as shared by a very wide swath of our nation. They wouldn’t personally do that to the 12 year old boy, (on Christmas Eve), but in their soulless and putrescent hearts, they like that it was done. They approve. And the way you know they approve of it, is the crickets you hear on the morning after, that follow all such horrors.

    You can literally read their id- in big bold letters- by the way they cover news stories, or not.

    So I must disagree with you on this one, and concede that the stakes involved here are very high indeed. And a return to the PTB pre-Trump, (regardless of how admittedly bad has been his tenure), would be very consequential indeed, to the future of our progeny. Which might be the understatement of the century.

    I regard the difference between the wet market vs. biolab origins of the virus as debatable but not terribly significant. …Take your pick.

    Whether of not the COVID-19 pathogen had either a wet market or a biolab error/terror origin or both or neither (as seems quite possible), the fact is the Chinese ignored request to shut down the wet market and they have opened them and they have, or say they have destroyed the evidence in their early samples. Hence China has ignored the expert begging them to shut down the wet markets in order to avoid a new SARS and misled the rest of the world when the epidemic he feared actually appeared–just as they did over the old SARS in 2002.

    Be it incompetence, malevolence or malfeasance, they have signally failed to discharge their duty to the rest of the world. In the last 18 years there has been SARS, MERS and COVID-19. Two from China and the worst and latest having a component from an animal that is uniquely trafficked to China. Are we supposed to wait for the next one? China obviously does not care what anyone thinks as evidenced by them reopening the wet markets. Surely the best thing is if the US tells China that another outbreak may be be treated in the same way as a nuclear attack. That will concentrate their minds on preventive measures. We know being reasonable with them will not work.

And a return to the PTB pre-Trump, (regardless of how admittedly bad has been his tenure), would be very consequential indeed, to the future of our progeny. Which might be the understatement of the century.

    I may be mistaken, but I seem to recall that in the (s)election campaign of 2008 Obama was beckoned to a synagogue in South Florida for a job interview. It took several hours and given he became POTUS soon afterward, he must have passed that interview with flying colours.

    I intentionally wrote (s)election above because I subsequently discovered something that I was totally unaware of at the time. While everyone knew that Obama had been a “community organization,” few really understood what that meant. Turns out that Saul Alinsky was the father of community organizing and that Supremacist Jews had handpicked Obama and groomed him to be the first black Jewish president.

    Excerpt from, Obama, the Jewish president:

    As a young man, the future leader of the free world absorbed the Yiddishkeit of a host of liberal-Jewish mentors, chief among them Rabbi Arnold Jacob Wolf

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/obama-the-jewish-president/

    The same goes for Trump. I had little knowledge of his background, also. Turns out that he was an ardent Zionist and had received the JNF’s Tree of Life award way back in 1983. He too was mentored and groomed by Jewish Supremacists, like Roy Cohn, to become president one day.

    This pattern is well established.

    There are some who seem to think Trump is the last great white hope. I think his first term in office proves that he isn’t. Rather than taking us to the inevitable massive train wreck at 100 mph, some think Trump will take us there at 60 mph others at 80 mph. That’s because he’s not a nationalist in the traditional sense of the term. The most you could say about him is that he is a civic nationalist. That’s what allows him to say things like he’d like to see “the greatest number of LEGAL immigrants come into the country.” But civic nationalism won’t cut it.

    So, despite the fact that he’s admittedly done some good things for heritage America – like refusing to appoint another liberal to the SCOTUS – his administration will, unfortunately, do little to slow down the damage inflicted by Jewish Supremacist Organizations (JSOs), let alone reverse it. The biggest threat facing the nation right now is the demographic one, and we all know who was responsible for gettimg Hart-Celler passed.

    The sooner the people of America come to realize that no one can come close to the presidency (if they haven’t been pre-approved by JSOs), the better. The best example of this truism is the experience we have of Ron Paul’s two failed presidential campaigns. Once they saw how popular he was with the people, the gatekeepers quickly moved in to shut him down. They do not plan on letting that happen again.

    Even though I’m reluctant to do so, I’m willing to go out on a limb and make the following prediction: despite the economic slowdown due to covid-19, Trump will win the next election and he will do things to repay his sponsors (Shelley at el) that will leave us speechless. That’s how much of a HARDCORE Zionist he is.

    Besides, why do you think our good friend Sam Shama was so high on Trump before any of us goys had a clue who Roy Cohn was?

    I think there’s a clip on the internet of the prince of darkness where an interviewer asks him the following question: “what would happen if a president decides to pull the plug on support for Israel?” Richard Perle’s response: “ he’d lose the next election.”

    Unfortunately, the electoral path has been blocked. We need to look for another path.

    Right. The idea that the Jews did all of what’s happened with absolutely no agency (initiative, free will) on the part of any other groups is exactly as implausible as the idea the Jews never did anything wrong. Neither ideas represent anything that mere humans could have accomplished.
    Most of the harm that has come my way has not been from Jews. The actual Jews seem to be a fairly neurotic bunch with only one routine — the Fagin routine, they’re your best friend until they turn to a snake and bite you, usually for small gains or for a loss. Strategically, their establishment is inept, with major losses to show throughout the 20th Century and the end of the Golden Age of Judaism in America as the most recent loss they’ve worked very hard to achieve. Granted that the survivors cling to Judaism, isn’t the butcher’s bill somewhat hard to justify even for that result?

    But the remaining European ethnic groups in the US, and the various American regions — they really did try for an end to competition after WW II, and are the ones most to blame for our current plight. They want life to be, above all, a purely social interaction with no contact with the physical world.
    Example: The term “Engineer” is hardly ever used now, nor is “Engineering”. The “engineer” was a person who turned general knowledge, experience, and scientific knowledge into things that people would buy — sanitation, iron stoves, automobiles, hi-fi — and there it stopped. There are no engineers now in the sense that Isambard Kingdom Brunel (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isambard_Kingdom_Brunel) was an engineer; he would not be tolerated today.
    At about that time (early 1970s) there was a campaign “engineers are stupid, its the marketing managers who count” and the word “technology” was first heard. The idea here was and is that humans don’t make things, the “social force” of “technology” makes things. Not only did you “not build that”, nobody did. PCs seemed to come from nowhere, they appeared but nobody was named, same as the much awaited COVID-19 vaccine. The American people went right along with that, and seemed to enjoy it.
    It was at about that time that engineering education took a nosedive; now an engineering degree is supposedly only useful for 5 years after graduation. The “Engineers” are actually “Technicians”, people who know how to operate equipment but no underlying principles. University administrations (usually manned by thugs, in my experience) like that because the parents (note – American parents, not Jewish parents) like it — less chance of the kids failing — and that means more business with less outlay for teaching.
    In the meantime, _American_ (Note: American, not Jewish) executives have no problem with uneducated engineers (or other people). They can get equally uneducated foreigners at lower salaries without sacrificing capabilities. Further, most of the executives compete in an environment of extreme capital shortage, and don’t need engineering in any case — they just need degreed somethings to sign paperwork. Or so they tell themselves, and so do the students.

    My point? A change in the American Establishment will not be just a change in the elite. The entire country has to come out of the “no competition, only politics and political reality” haze and start having skills and goods that they can trade in a physical reality for something more concrete than political favors in a political reality. That’s going to be a difficult task. The difficulty is the reason for the hatred that Rurik cites. Establishment people _like_ the political reality that is very similar to endless junior high school. It’s all they can do, all they can offer is the ability to be a 40 year old junior high school student. They will do almost anything to keep that status (e.g. Rurik’s description of newsies), and they only have until November of 2020 to save it.

  103. curmudgeon 71, I’ve noticed VT’s odd animus against the current interchangeable presidential puppet ruler. Kleptocrats like Trump, or Obama, or Bush, or Clinton, are simply the end stage of CIA parasitism as it showed up in ‘Nam, where Phoenix Centers conducted the Coke v. Pepsi market competition with torture and ordnance. I believe Duff has some residual sentimental attachment to his old CIA friends, and it clouds his systemic appreciation of the criminal enterprise as a whole. He seems to think CIA was suborned by large-scale drug-dealing in the ’80s, when that activity became a dominant profit center in the 60s.

    But what difference does it make that the UNC chimera was patented? So was LSD, since 1943, and CIA happily used that for illegal domestic operations.

  104. If the CDC can mandate that all deaths, however tentatively linked to cov19, the death certificate must be marked a NCOV19 death. Now, that’s lieing most grieviously. The FED lied and under Black Rock Financial Inc. management just printed many tillions of dollars, and passed them out to the undeserving. That’s a lie of another color (green), and it may come back to bite us hard in the form of inflation. A successful trillions dollar law suit against China may balance that book and soften the coming inflation blow.
    What if Trump is doing the best he can against all odds staying just short of being assassinated poilically or physiclly? What if he knows the main players in this, i.e. Rockefeller Foundations, the Gates’s. designed this scenario (their word for it)? Then marched out their string of sock puppets led by Fauci and Brix and that terrorist over at WHO, and with the entire corrupt media on board sold the world a bill of bad goods.
    What’s the benefit to them you ask. Well, a vaccine for the world, at $500 a shot”, one with an electronic marker that keeps track of you and your habits 24/7 till the day you died. That’s a good one to start with. You can think of others. So is Trump, surrounded by sharks, is he stalling for time? Who knows. Just be ready to act like a patriot when the medical vans backed by swat teams start arriving very early one morning.

    The IC community stating that there is no evidence that the virus “man made or genetically modified” and Trump’s assertion that the virus originated in a lab in Wuhan are not mutually exclusive. In fact, there is a good deal of evidence that the virus may have leaked from the lab in Wuhan without being genetically modified. We know that the species of bat from which the virus originated is not indigenous to the Hubei province but from a province hundreds of miles away and that there were no bats being sold at the wet market during the time of the infections. We also know that the lab in Wuhan was researching that species of virus as well as many other bat viruses. We also know that Dr. Fauci’s organization paid the Wuhan Institute of Virology millions of dollars to conduct experiments on bat’s ability to transmit the coronavirus to humans.

    The actual Jews seem to be a fairly neurotic bunch

    I actually know a lot of Jews. Decent people for the most part. No worse than any other group, on an individual basis.

    Strategically, their establishment is inept, with major losses to show throughout the 20th Century

    I’m sorry. You may be well-meaning, but that has to be one of the most inept things I’ve read lately.

    As a former military officer, Mr Giraldi should know that the President is the Commander-in-Chief of the US military, as set by Article II Section 2 of the US Constitution, and has the right to direct it in whatever (legal) manner he chooses.

    Article II section II says the president has the power.. <=Article II most certainly does not say the elected clown has a unilateral exclusive right to exercise that awesome power?

    Not only does the constitution refuse to grant to the elected Clown in charge any right to do anything with the power, unless both the ADVICE of the Senate confirms the need to use the power and the Senate delivers its consent for the clown in chief to exercise it. Article I of said constitution Section 8 paragraph 11 says The Congress shall have Power to declare war, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures of land and Water; <== it is basic my good Watson to understand the difference between these two powers: neither power is a right.. they are both duties that arise in elected persons only when circumstance and experience leave no other alternative ..

    I also note that the separation between possession of the power and advise and consent of the Senate proves beyond doubt that the founders intended the use of such power occur only when there was no other alternative at all. Vesting the power and restraining its use proves the Founders expected it not to be often if ever used.

    Only affirmative advise of the Senate could lead to CONSENT of the Senate. But even if the advise is affirmative, the use of the power is still restrained until consent is given.. Suggest you re read the constitution Art. II, section II. you failed the test.

    The power is vested by virtue of an election in a single person but the authority to use that power, and most certainly the unilateral right to use that Power were not vested in the person appointed by election to have the power. it was vested in the collective and consenting wisdom of a highly collaborative Senate with the President. > allowed to select from candidates presented by one of two political parties at the poll <== just three persons (select from all of the candidates, just 3 because that is all the votes you have) . Two citizens votes appoint two each persons to fill the two Senate seats allowed to residence state of the voter, and one citizen vote appoints one each person to fill the single seat allowed to voter who votes in a census district. There are 425 members house of representatives and 100 members of the Senate they make up Article I of the USA constitution. Two people make up the entire of Article II of the USA constitution. Without both affirmative advise and majority consent of the Senate, reliance on Presidential exercise of Power could get a lot of military personnel into war crime courts, IMO, IMNAL..

    I cannot find an American who would vote a person into the office of the President of the United States if that elected person had as his or her intention to use the Power to kill, murder, destroy other peoples infrastructure or destroy the quality of other peoples lives.

    Every guy on street with a loaded gun has the power to pull the trigger, but no gun toting person, has the right to pull that trigger with the intention to kill.. destroy, or disrupt, unless fully justified by an immediate, severely threatening situation.. Not understanding the difference between being assigned the power and having adequate advise, and true majority consent to use it can land many in a human rights court.

    Thanks for the opportunity to respond..

    Sounds like a deliberately pejorative misinterpretation of how Trump demands loyalty as an indispensable quality of those working for him. Do you think he might have a little justification for that, for example unceasing attacks by unacknowledged, seditious Deep State operatives to stage a coup on his administration, with anti-Trump members of his own party looking on in benign neglect ???

    Whether or not such loyalty compromises the quality of their work is an entirely different matter, one that amounts to a baseless assumption unsupported by facts. Then the conclusion that they are lying is simply wrong based on the false assumption.

    Crozier, as captain of the carrier, is responsible for the release of his e-mail. That e-mail disclosed the status of the combat capability of the ship, a matter of the highest security. The SecNav, although an idiot, was right in removing him from command. The President was also right in accepting his resignation for acting like an idiot.

    Presidents always jockey around getting their senior administrators correct. Obama purged almost two hundred senior military officers back around 2009, and he went through multiple Secretaries and AG’s.

    I believe this is the nightmare that is staring most of patriotic Americans who have kept in their heart the “America gone”, as Chuck says. Rurick is too romantic to believe that a solution will come through elections. Present day elections will perpetuate a carcinogenic congress ad infinitum.

    Elections and revolutions are passe now days but this might work. Three guys with real balls and stars on their shoulders walk in the WH and in front of a nation wide TV cameras present us with our new leader who will be charged with resurrecting our Republic.

    This time around the new election law must have real teeth as to who can vote and who cannot. Also, instill at the top of the government the necessary power so no executive order or signed law can stay in limbo. It is either executed or canceled by another executive order or law. Two examples.
    1. The Executive order 1110 of JFK and
    2. The NESARA law signed by Clinton.

    For the first one the killing of JFK did not kill the executive order. It is still alive and well waiting for some leader to either execute it or cancel it. The same with the NESARA law, the TwinTowers did not take the law down with them. What really happened is that all these years we did not have Governments to do governing, but kids playing in the sand. Now go back to my second paragraph and spend a little time on it.

    Your comment is foolish and not supported by any facts– just the opposite is in fact supported by the facts all can easily now research as to text messages within the FBI/CIA/DOJ Coup, Documents as to Gen. Flynn’s framing, and otherwise. Whether I like or hate Donald Trump the fact that elements of the CIA, FBI and DOJ tried to install Hillary Clinton as President and defeat him — and failing that then tried to run an operation to destroy and remove Donald Trump is beyond question now. The Mainslime Globalist compromised Media has been in on it from day one.

    There is little doubt that Obama himself was involved and the ex-Head of the CIA John Brennan “ran” the operation (thankfully incompetently as Brennan NEVER had any real experience in the CIA in operations/what he took on and thus failed and left a trail that has been hard to cover up) and enlisted NWO Globalist fellow travelers worldwide into it — especially the utterly corrupt British Intelligence establishment which was highly involved in all of this operation.

    The coup involved both Sen. Burr and Sen. Warner (and others– Feinstein etc.) and spanned across the Government including Rod Rosenstein at the DOJ (and many others there) — Rosenstein’s efforts in it and to cover it up have been followed now by AGBarr trying mightily to cover up for Rosenstein — because of the fact that if the truth comes out the “Institutions” will fail — in Barr’s world view this is unacceptable — if it is admitted that this much of the Government, elected Congressmen, and all its agencies are so totally and utterly corrupt and involved in Sedition the thinking is the citizens will not support same anymore (we could only hope and pray for such!) — this is why James Wolfe who was boffing the NYSlimes Reporter was basically given a walk for leaks of highly classified documents that should have put him in prison for 20 years or more — he had the goods on those directing/helping him on the Intelligence Committee (Burr and Warner etc.) and if he had been properly prosecuted the entire Coup and all involved would have then been outed in his prosecution.

    AG Barr is trying to deal with, if not cover all this up, while being forced by the outflow of facts, and the anger of many citizens over what we all know happened and the Mainslime Media still won’t cover, to look like he is doing something about what was done while actually, to date, not doing much of anything — this is why McCabe was not prosecuted when it was clear he lied. The question now is whether the Durham investigation will just be used to run out the clock or actually address all, some or any of what was done by the Coup plotters.

    Only a complete partisan, someone in on it, or an ignorant fool would believe otherwise at this point — that these people had “big love” for Trump and were actually wanting him in as President. Please. They didn’t do any of this because they wanted him President — you are living in a dream world of TDS.

    Trump kept his own Security Team from day one — they are absolutely dedicated to him and highly professional. He is not solely relying on the Secret Service– wonder why? (The NYSlimes and WaPoo were very unhappy of this and made note of it as a “bad” thing early on– yes for their side it was a bad thing obviously — Trump was not going to do a JFK replay and the side you claim doesn’t exist is fully aware of this problem). There may have been 2 episodes of attempted poisoning that have surfaced but not been pushed forward to full daylight — at some time we may hear more as to those or maybe not.

    There are clearly factions within the Government who have been working against the traitors from day one — the traitors are NWO Globalist traitors/cowards (these alphabet Agencies are full of them– many Ivy League indoctrinated/brainwashed grads/”Elites”) and so they would have to find an Oswald type patsy who they could either set up or someone willing to die for their corrupt “cause” — very likely they have had no “volunteers” there.

    It is very clear the NWO Globalist “Elite” detest Trump (you think Soros likes him and is glad he’s President?) and he has been a problem to their inflicting their NWO One World Government Agenda — regardless of our “feelings” as to him for whatever reason — for that alone all should be grateful to him.

    We are seeing a major NWO “Elite” roll out of their Agenda on us thru this Medical Martial Law operation superimposed on the ChiCom Cold Virus release — they have had this roll out planned out and “gamed” out for years — if they are able to pull this off we will all be living in a ChiCom type society here forward, no Rights for the Peons and Crony Capitalism theft ongoing forever on top– quite the combination — from what I have read here many writers/commenters think that would be just great.

    I suppose the only way it could be construed that it isn’t staring me in the face, just as menacingly as anyone else, is because I’ve been trying to extricate myself from the Fiend’s sandbox ever since I glimmered the man behind the 9/11 curtain.

    But it’s tough, very tough to walk away from a lifetime’s efforts at building a modestly successful business, and establishing ties and roots, and friends and associates of all kinds.

    Is Trump as bad as Hillary would be?

    On this account I consider any argument for that postulate to be prima facie preposterous. Perhaps if you’re a transgender black lesbian feminist Zionist ‘defense industry employee SJW with an anti-white chip on your shoulder the size of Russia, who wants every white male in America castrated and then set on fire, yea, then I can see how such a person might lament Hillary’s loss, but for a sane person of good charactor, there’s just no fucking way anyone could make that case, IMHO.

    So that leaves us with Donald Trump, warts (and slavish fealty to Jewish supremacism), and all.

    but you went on to broach the DJT vs HRC comparison.

    yes Sir, I did, because we’re all expected to play pretend, that they’re both the exact same.

    And I begin to bristle at this idiocy. Especially since I’ll be followed around and hectored about how horrible Trump is, while they all myopically pretend that the alternative wouldn’t be much, much worse.

    Just as this article by Mr. G. demonstrates, as he rails against Trump, while ignoring that the Establishment IC are treasonous scum, the lot. At least at the top levels.

    I’m not good at playing pretend, when everything you rightly lament that’s wrong with our world, is staring us, exactly like you said, straight in our faces.

    i.e., these two Traitorous Shabbos Goys will come and go, to be replaced by another set of Traitorous Shabbos Goys… wash, rinse, and repeat.

    so stick our heads in the sand, and do our Rumpelstiltskin impression, because nothing matters anymore. All we can do is rail at Trump this, and Trump that, and if Biden selects Hillary as his running mate, that won’t matter either.

    All that matters in our hatred for Trump. That’s it.

    (I love it that Trump is pissing off the IC. I think that like his pissing off the media, and leftists of every rotten stripe, he’s at least doing some things that are good. And when so, I’ll God damn say so. And if that drives people to apoplectic fits of rage, then so be it ; )

    I’m tired of the idiocy that we all MUST agree that Trump is the exact same thing as Hillary, or Biden or Biden and Michelle Obama, or anyone. And any deviation from that narrative, must be met with seething invective, because there’s no difference between them!

    Only there is, and it’s obvious, and Trump has done a lot of good, by exposing all these rotten, treasonous scum in our federal law enforcement and intelligence communities, that have lied us into endless wars for Zion.

    I’d like to see Comey and Brennan doing the perp walk, and stuffed into prison with that other asshole, Michael Avenatti. Trump is scum, it’s true, but there are silver linings, and when so, I’ll say so. (unless or until Mr. G. or Mr. Unz, asks me to desist. In which case, I of course will)

    I’ll make a deal with those who suffer TDS- stay away from me, and I’ll stay away from you. (as I’ve said before ; )

    If I feel like pointing out how Mr. G. has gone off the rails, then I’ll do so, (regardless of anyone’s hysterical pant’s wetting).

    It’s just up to those with their personal derangement, to simmer in quiet rage, because someone isn’t frothing and gibbering and pissing themselves, about how EVIL!! Trump is.

    And if I’m attacked, well then Geo, I have the truth on my side. And an adult’s capacity to understand that playing pretend, is counter productive (and for an adult, pathetic ; )

    Is any potential praise for anything Trump has accomplished, like routing out some traitorous rats in our federal law enforcement and CIA, beyond the pale?

    Because we should (must) all unanimously curse and spit at Trump no matter what, across the board, for his (admitted) fealty to Israel?

    (a fealty that virtually every single politician in DC – recently to include that Omar woman- and obviously Joe Biden, also display)

    And that is different from Christians how, Art?

    All the administrations we’ve had in America’s governments going back to WWI, were self-avowed, church-going Christians.

    Self-avowed, church-going Christians that ordered the bombing of Dresden. That ordered all the wars we’ve fought on Israel’s behalf.

    Christians.

    the Jews are totally neurotic when it comes Israeli politics.

    and the Christians are not?

    Why do you think Trump put Pence on the ticket? Why does Lindsey Graham always get re-elected? There aren’t too many Jews in South Carolina, Art. It’s Christians that elect Lindsey and Mike Pence and the Bushes and Clintons. Tom Cotton is the other senator from South Carolina, and he’s one of the most war mongering scumbags around. And a Christian.

    Does that fact impugn everyday Christians as somehow flawed human beings?

    Here’s something I just noticed on PCRs article.

    More evidence of lying scumbags in America’s federal law enforcement community.

    And why? Because they hate Trump. So that fact, that they hate Trump, is used to excuse every type of treasonous criminal treachery they can come up with, even to the point of setting up a respected and distinguished general. And why? Because they hate Trump. So that makes it all understandable. Why who wouldn’t abuse their power and lie, when your goal is to destroy a man you hate?

    Isn’t that reason enough, for our top law enforcement and ‘intelligence agencies to abuse all the power invested in them- in order to destroy a man they hate?

    I mean come on, it’s a no-brainer, right?

    If you were the sheriff of a county, or just a police officer, and you hated a man, who would blame you if you set that man up, and sent him to prison, if you hated him.

    That’s really all the justification anyone needs today, for doing anything untoward or deceitful or down right rotten, so long as the target of your malice is someone you hate.

    That’s our new sense of right and wrong. Anything we do to someone we hate, no matter how illegal or treacherous or malevolent, is all justified simply by the mere fact that we hate them.

    Hmm — Of course comparisons can be misleading.

    For sure there are bad Christians who do not follow their philosophy. Notwithstanding, Christians have built the best culture on our Earth. Clearly it is not perfect – but it is better. Whereas the tribal Jew are still operating on an ancient zero sum “an eye for an eye” culture. Individual Jews have been successful and productive – but they have done so in Christian Western culture – not Jew culture.

    You can say that Jews are not neurotic about Israel – but that would be dishonest.

    Your insisting that Jews and Christians are the same – is preposterous.

    Clearly Christianity has not conquered our biological male war nature. But with Christian philosophy there is hope. With work, we will create peace. With Jew culture in the lead, peace can never happen. That is the biggest difference between Christians and Jews.

    But the thing is Chuck, I don’t hate Trump as much as you do, and for you, that seems to be unacceptable.

    You can hate Trumpenstien with all your soul, and kick and scream and hold your breath. It’s all good, I don’t mind.

    My problem is when you patrol the comment section for any post that isn’t sufficiently anti-Trump. And then arrogantly presume to hector the poster as being some kind of Trump-lover, because he doesn’t hate Trump as singularly as you do.

    It’s really a very arrogant and offensive way to treat people, who simply have a different view than you do.
    >><<

    On a side note, I've been pondering this thread, and trying to divine why it is that Mr. G. also seems to hate Donald Trump. And I've developed a theory.

    It's based on prestige. I know that a lot of folks in the media hate Trump. Duh.

    But I wonder if part of the reason for that is that Donald Trump has near singlehandedly destroyed the erstwhile prestige of the media. There was a time when saying you were a TV journalist for CNN, would have been something to be proud of. Now they make jokes, like the school boy tells his class that his dad is a male prostitute, because he didn't want to tell the truth, that he works for CNN.

    And there are other professions that have similarly been denigrated by the advent of Trump.

    The FBI, the CIA were both jobs that you'd tell people you did, and no doubt to oohs and ahhs.

    But perhaps, not so much anymore. Perhaps some of the prestige of being an 'intelligence agent', has gone out the window, in this era of Trump.

    Just imagine how Comey and Brenan and Clapper and the rest of them, used to have all kinds of prestige, but now they're worried about going to prison. Being a State Dept. diplomat used to be an 'honorable' profession at one time, even when it wasn't. Those diplomats to Ukraine, no doubt hate Trump like few others.

    So there's been a paradigm shift. And I just wonder if Mr. G.'s old colleagues aren't feeling a little bit of angst at their loss of prestige. 'That orange fucking son of a bitch, you know what he said about us?!' And whether or not that doesn't color Mr. G's perceptions.

    That and the fact that Trump is an asshole and a dangerous 'bull in the china shop' buffoon on top of it all, as the icing on the cake, so to speak.

    Anyways, those were my rambling thoughts on the matter. Trying to make sense of it all, as is my wont.

    Your insisting that Jews and Christians are the same – is preposterous.

    you misread me Art. They’re certainly not the same. Hardly. But the notion of condemning the little Jews, for supporting the big Jews, is sort of the same.

    I know a lot of ‘little Jews, and a lot of ‘little’ Christians, and most of them are simple people trying to make a living and raise families. Yes, the little Jews support Israel, but then so too do the little Fox News-watching, Shawn Hannity-listening Christians, they often support Israel even more than the Jews is do.

    Who is worse, a Jew who supports Jewish Israel, or a Christian, who supports (and sends his sons to die for) Jewish Israel?

    I’m more angry at the Christians, who’re so slavish in their fealty to Israel. It’s humiliating and degrading to see.

    Clearly Christianity has not conquered our biological male war nature

    Perhaps that’s the problem. All these attempts to sissify our Christian boys, and turn them into passive, ‘turn the other cheek’, girly-boys.

    If I were raising Christian boys, I’d encourage them to learn to fight, and be willing to defend their families, even to the point of killing a threat, not begging and praying for it to go away.

    Even worse is what’s left of the ‘biological male war nature’, has been diverted to serve Israel.

    But with Christian philosophy there is hope. With work, we will create peace. With Jew culture in the lead, peace can never happen.

    Well Art, today our Christian nation has been co-opted by the Big Jews. And the only way anything is going to change that, is a militant type of aggressive unwillingness to submit to this Jewed state of affairs. Not by getting on one’s knees, and praying for it to all go away.

    I’m from a Christian family and Christian peoples. They’re my people, and that’s where my ultimate loyalties will always lie. But I’m exasperated with them. Some Christians want war, (not to fight in personally, but rather other people fight and die), so they can get their rapture. That’s not going to lead to peace, quite the contrary.

    Most of what ails our Christian peoples, comes from Christian people. Politicians and ministers and priests who sell us out for shekels. I despise them far more than I despise the Jews who pay them the shekels.

    It’s up to the Christians to get their own house in order, before we can set the ship of state right again. Jews will do what Jews do, swindle and seek their own interests, but the only way they’re able to make so many inroads against our own people, is because of the moral cowardice and complicity of Christians.

    I’m not talking about you, Art. I’ve ‘known’ you for a long time now, and you’re a good soul, no doubt about it. But if Christians are going to free themselves from the yoke of Jewish domination, they’re going to have to find a more robust kind of Christianity that will stomp on the snake, like the Christ did in that Mel Gibson movie.

    OK, I think I have a common goal that we could agree on:

    I interpreted

    but the Gentile members of our ‘intelligence community’, who would facilitate the assassination of our president, and cover it up even today, and participate in the lies being told to the American people and beyond, in order to squander untold oceans of Gentile blood and mountains of Gentile treasure, for the benefit of the Jewish supremacist state, are the most dangerous scum on the planet today

    as the Gentile members having no agency, reacting only to the initiative (agency) of the “Jewish supremacist state”.

    I’ve known and worked with a fair number of Jews, including some graduate students, some half-bright academics and a labor leader later convicted under Robert Kennedy back in the day and a quarter bright naval officer who appeared to have serious psychological problems. The ones that had no interests that were affected by me acted like good people. The others also acted like good people until the betrayal. It’s what you’d expect from what amount to a group of Gnostics who believe they have been divinely selected. No exceptions to the rule – one trick ponies.

    strategic ‘successes’ of the Jewish supremacists of the 20th century.

    Well, those “successes” were kind of like settling an argument with your neighbor by exploding a propane tank under the table in a room with both families present. Sure, if you look at the damage done to the Christians, it was a success. If you look at the damage done to the Jews, well, they managed to discredit their main initiatives (Communism, Jewish government of Christians, Zionism) at the cost of considerable Jewish casualties. Even the Russian “success” put a Russian nationalist (Stalin) in charge, and he killed a very large number of Jews after soiling the reputation of Judaism by favoring Jews as State employed mass killers. In the present Century (21st) they’ve managed to end the Jewish Golden Time in the US and probably Europe by supporting political power for groups that want them dead, and the use of American forces in support of Israel has resulting in wiping out all Jewish settlements in the Middle East outside of Israel.
    That’s not success, that’s being a suicide bomber, like our propane bomber above.
    Literary reference: back in the ‘60s I saw a first run production of “Do, Re, Mi”. “Hubie” is a character who has started up a number of low level enterprises / cons. He wants to be a VIP, and manages to start a juke-box (add coins, it plays a record, 1950s phenomenon). It almost works. Here’s a synopsis of the relevant part:

    . Before a Senate investigating committee in Washington the partners, running true to form, finger Hubie as the guilty power behind the jukebox trouble. Hubie is excited and delighted to be in the spotlight at last. He mistakes notoriety for fame, and fame for importance. He becomes for a brief, wild whirl what he thinks he has always wanted to be: a V.I.P. But the bubble bursts – as bubbles always do – and Hubie is forced to face himself in the cracked, stained mirror of truth (“All of My Life!”). Fame deserts him, along with his hope. (happy ending – he reunites with his wife and has his marriage back)

    https://www.masterworksbroadway.com/music/do-re-mi-original-broadway-cast-recording-1960/
    This just might be a metaphor the Jewish story in the US: inept pushing that succeeds when it is aligned with the interests of the natives (as in the medieval “servants to the King” role) and fails otherwise), leads to an interval of great apparent success (like Hubie, above), and finally to a crash as the apparent success turns out to have been notoriety (as in Eastern and Central Europe post-WW I). The fictional Hubie is part of a tragedy – he is betrayed by his own character. There are similarities with historical Jewish successes/failure, which of course is why “Do, Re, Mi” is considered a “classic” play.
    The one Jewish success, the economic success in the West — well, if IQ correlates with income, and Ashkenazi Jewish IQ is really one standard deviation (SD) up from Gentile IQ, it makes some sense that Ashkenazi income would also be one SD up (as Black is one SD down). Of course, the labor racketeer wasn’t all that bright, and still had a nice house in Westchester County, but, then, the Italian gangsters made out fairly well also. Sometimes not bright is the right answer. OTH, after his conviction he moved to Long Island, no other Jew would speak to him, and his daughter killed herself, apparently from lack of marital prospects.
    As for the political success, that’s not obvious when you think about it. Was the Jewish establishment in the US just following its historic routine when the Western elite fell in behind it as a formed parade in need of a fall guy?

    Maybe Western cities needed new inhabitants, the Jewish establishment was in favor of immigration and little it cared for the law, and the Western urban elites needed either a genius or a fall guy to front for them, so the Jews found themselves sudden leaders. Evidence? The Western urban elites fought not at all, but went through a big act of contrition before letting the Jewish program save their cities for about 40 years. These same NYC elites had favored immigration to the extent of ignoring city wide riots since large numbers of Catholic Irish arrived in Protestant NY during the 1840s. and started to take NYC government from the previous inhabitants. Note that the Western urban elites are about as bad as long term strategy as the Jewish establishment; now (2020) they are both going down because they imported an immense number of foreigners who want to displace them both. Again, that’s not a victory, more like a suicide bombing.
    Summary:
    In one phrase, the Jews are not seven feet tall. And to add another phrase, “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings.”. We have tried taking a long vacation from real reality, favoring “political reality”; it was not forced on us by the Jewish establishment.
    Further it’s doubtful that the Jewish establishment will suddenly say “You’re right, and were going to devote all our resources to making you whole”; we (whoever a viable faction of “we” turns out to be) get to do that ourselves. Even if it did, the Jewish establishment is largely front men and lacks ability and resources to make anybody whole.

    The Russians saved themselves from a failed society, we can too.

    I suppose there is some sympathy for Israeli Jews in some quarters of the world, that see so many minorities as hostile and hateful. Like a lot of America’s blacks certainly are. But that’s only because these people are too stupid to understand that most of the strife vis-a-vis white vs. black in America, is directly due to societal manipulations of Jewish supremacists.

    Sheldon Adelson is one of the biggest proponents of immigration of non-whites into America that there is. Paul Ryan was his bitch, and that’s why for two years, the Republicans didn’t ‘build the wall’. Because the Jewish supremacists from whom those Republicans suck shekels, hate white America more than any racist-crazed nigger thug could ever hope to.

    Is the solution to what ails America, for Southern whites to get on their knees, and beg forgiveness for ‘hundreds of years of slavery’, and then Jim Crow, and even now, black men on their knees in the streets of Southern America are holding their hands in the air, and pleading ‘hands up, don’t shoot’, only to be gunned down by racist white men with guns, who’re shooting unarmed black men and boys in a pandemic that makes the Cornhole Virus look like a Sunday school picnic?

    This just might be a metaphor the Jewish story in the US: inept pushing that succeeds when it is aligned with the interests of the natives (as in the medieval “servants to the King” role) and fails otherwise), leads to an interval of great apparent success (like Hubie, above), and finally to a crash as the apparent success turns out to have been notoriety (as in Eastern and Central Europe post-WW I). The fictional Hubie is part of a tragedy – he is betrayed by his own character. There are similarities with historical Jewish successes/failure…

    Interesting allegorical metaphor.

    Yes, it does seem to be a reoccurring tragedy that the ‘Jews’ consolidate power over the Gentiles by unctuously cozying up to the Gentile elite, only to inevitably misconstrue their privileged perch as a mandate from their god that they really are better than the goyim, and then on cue, use that privileged perch to fuck over the goyim who invariably fail to act as abject slaves to ‘the Jews’, and the cycle keeps repeating..

    The Russians saved themselves from a failed society, we can too.

    Agree?

    The Russians, like the Germans a while ago, had the good luck (temporarily anyways) of having a nationalist bubble up from the ranks of Russians. A lot of Americans were hoping that Trump was a kind of nationalist, with his ‘America first’ ruse.

    Apparently it was always about Israel first, but then I really don’t know the ins and outs. I’m just grateful we’re not in any new wars, and as I just agreed with Alden, the forces of anti-white hatred are seething in their bile, and for now, anyways, they haven’t rounded us up and put in the FEMA camps.

    How will this all play out?

    I’m not optimistic.

    I’m not optimistic.

    Well, frankly, my wife and I are probably going to get taken out by the overkill, and right now it’s just a matter of how long we last and who we help. Of course, we’re pretty old and have less than a decade of life expectancy in any case, so it wouldn’t take much overkill to take us out.

    In terms of Western civilization, it’s been in similar trouble before — 30 Years War: the time that the Islamic powers took over much of Eastern Europe while the Western European/Christian powers proceeded to almost destroy each other while actually killing maybe a quarter to a half of Central Europe’s population. That horror show matches most of today’s idiocy. The result was that the superior weaponry and tactics developed during the wars between Western Europeans developed tactics, weapons, and a manufacturing capability that later on let Austria spearhead a effort that largely undid the Islamic gains, and enabled the European breakout of 1500. See also Kondratieff Wave (https://corporatefinanceinstitute.com/resources/knowledge/economics/kondratieff-wave/), although I think the current situation is deeper than Kondratieff ‘s analysis.

    One of the very few good things about times of chaos is that they enforce development of novelty. The Universal Peace (or, more accurately, the Universal Maintenance of Tensions Just Short of Central War) since WW II has been a time of suppression of novelty. Space industrialization is an example: back around 1960 AT&T wanted to launch a global network of satellites to produce, within a decade or less, the kind of worldwide communications we have today. Feds told them “No”, the Feds would handle that. Then the Feds did not handle that, and later broke up AT&T. (Note similarities to Fed’s immigration con.) Now, there are several companies working in space industrialization (I used to work in that area also). Transportation that opens up new territories and their resources are sort of like the results of the Dutch developing the automated sailing ship (“flute ships”, replaced crew with an ultra-complex but workable system of block and tackle units) and putting the entire sub-Arctic coastline of the World in range of European shipping. It gives the West access to resources unavailable to other societies.

    So the West_might_ just survive once again, at the usual terrible cost (_if_ it can stop killing off its own Westerners, as the White Death does now). From my standpoint, Spengler’s (Goldman’s) adage that “Its (probably) not the end of the world, it’s just the end of you” seems to sum things up for me.

    In the meantime, we seem to have a quite spontaneous popular US rejection of just about everything done a year ago, echoing similar rejections in France, and the central government is getting steadily weaker (as per van Creveld, “Fate of the State”, _Parameter_, 1996 — search Google Scholar). Promising signs for the West.

    And I should add that, while I try to keep my essays light and abstract, I’m furious about the current state of affairs. Let’s just say that I’ve lost many friends and relatives to this, ah, stuff, and don’t really like probable future threats either. I just don’t see the point of trying to depict the emotion in Unz.com essays. What’s my point? Among other thing, accurate assessment of the strategic situation, with emphasis on threat analysis.

    Anyway, good luck and take care of yourself.

    Sorry – did not mean to restart the Civil War. The question was about Zionist Christians, and I gave what I think is the reason for Southern white support for Israel.

    As a boy from the West, I witnessed Jim Crow in the deep South. The fear that the blacks lived under was real and total. There is no wiping out those feelings. Both the blacks and whites of those times, have to die out, before things can improve. I believe that the South will come to terms between the whites and blacks.

    I must partially disagree with your statement about the “Jim Crow” South:

    /As a boy from the West, I witnessed Jim Crow in the deep South. The fear that the blacks lived under was real and total. There is no wiping out those feelings. Both the blacks and whites of those times, have to die out, before things can improve. I believe that the South will come to terms between the whites and blacks./

    The Jim Crow laws were put in place, not only to establish a racial “pecking order” but to “keep the peace”.

    Even then, it was well-known that when blacks got together, violence was almost always a part of the equation, not unlike the situation that exists to this very day. As black and white communities were separate, Jim Crow kept the propensity for black violence in the black community.

    I realize that there were abuses within the system, but they were few and far between.

    The problem with the present situation is that there has been social “spillover” in which most crimes committed against whites and others are perpetrated by blacks. In Jim Crow times, blacks KNEW that any transgressions against whites would be severely punished. Not anymore.

    Keep in mind, that in spit of Jim Crow, solid relationships between blacks and whites were actually more prevalent in the South than in the North. Blacks and whites did have separate communities, but quite often blacks worked for whites and were considered a part of the workday community. “Sundown towns” preserved the peace.

    Maybe it is better that Jim Crow was abandoned, but in today’s climate which is stacked against whites, we now have “Ja’shaun Crow”

    – No one above the level of a Pete or Lisa need be worried, and none is, about prison or any loss of prestige.

    already you’re wrong.

    John Brennan and James C0mey, are not just disgraced and reviled traitors to this nation, but here a former CIA operative says:

    “If they can prove that case and prosecute people like the James Comeys, and I think a guy like John Brennan, what I hope will happen is they will try to find whatever the most extreme form of punishment … that they can to throw at these guys,” Wright said.

    “I’d love to see the death penalty,” he continued. “And boy, oh boy, I’ll tell you, if I could flip the switch myself, I’d do it. Because these men are traitors.”

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/former-cia-operative-people-like-comey-and-brennan-should-get-death-penalty

    that’s not just a HUGE loss of prestige, (going from Americans being proud to invite you to speak at their convention, to becoming a repugnant symbol of corruption and even treason, at the highest levels), and now they have this guy investigating them

    I’d say they’re looking at Michael Avenatti today, (going from darling of the leftisphere to wearing makeshift chastity belts for his arse), and wondering how far a guy can fall in the blink of an eye.

    Even among the minority of Americans willing and able to understand the sedition and perjury trapping of Mr. Flynn, there’s a remarkably short attention span, and a craven need to see the Establishment as “brave men and women” who should be “thanked for their service.”

    If James Comey or John Brennan were to show up at a Fourth of July celebration in Red State America, I bet they’d get their asses kicked. Security services or not. In fact, a few of their security detail might take the opportunity to land a few kicks themselves.

    Kind of like that guy in the Hannibal movie, when the assistant pushes the guy to the pigs

    That’s sort of how middle America sees Comey and Brennan. They’d cheer the hungry pigs, ‘go to it boys!’

    Middle America is fickle, and they’ve already forgiven Bush for his crimes. But America was put thought two years of a grotesque fraud, with the “Russia did it!’ idiocy. Because the left could not (and still can not) accept that their anti-white male, blood-stained hag was defeated by Trump.

    So as the left shits themselves, and pulls their hair out, and writhes in their toxic bile, Red State America is paying attention, and they know all too well, that the left’s unhinged hatred for Trump, is just a thinly veiled hatred for them. White, Christian, gun-owning, heterosexual and glad of it- the left would like to see them in the pig pit. Who doubts that Bill Maher would shove us all to the hungry pigs, until he’s shoved in. And that’s sort of what it’s been like since Trump won. We conservative type of unapologetic American white folks, who don’t even want to be gay! Sort of see Trump as a metaphorical way of shoving Robert Reich into the pit. A small morsel, it’s true, but I bet he’d squirm a lot, and the piggies could soft of make a sport of it!

    enough to rationalize participation in the next Most Important Election Ever.

    yea, yea

    You’re a broken record. I just laid out how significant Trump beating the hag has been, and continues to be.

    Mr G. may harbor some nostalgic sense of honor for his old buddies in ‘the service’, (and no doubt there were and are some good ones) but the truth is, the men and women who attempted to thwart the will of the American electorate, because they agree with Hillary, and consider us all deplorable and irredeemable, are execrable scum, and if guilty, deserve to dance at the end of a rope. If it was proven, that Brennan actually did commit treason and sedition, (out of an elite’s sense of superiority and hatred for the conservative-type of American people) would I personally push him into the pit…?

    while you sit back waiting again for Mr. Trump to MAGA,

    Fool, few people have been more critical of the Trump administration. The difference between you and I, is that I’m not dumb enough (or ideologically concretized ; ) to think that Hillary would have been no different. Anyone that monumentally stupid.. should perhaps just put a 38 in their gob, and do themselves and the rest of us a favor.

    the true Beltway constituents — BigWar, BigPharma, WallStreet, et al — won’t lift their snouts from the trough.

    Before the fall, we can do something the old-fashioned way — get involved in local party politics. The party hacks will fight you – make them vote you down – go to the next meeting and make your points again. With likeminded people, take control of your water works, school system, city hall — then work on county government. Be ready to take control when the Feds fail.

    Nonetheless, following is an honorable “way out,” as Mr. Dave Marsh once explained to me.
    In an old email, Dave wrote something to this effect, “The only battle worth fighting is the one you know that you cannot win.”🤔

    Consequently, to death, I will fight best I could against “this situation.”

    Dave Marsh is a little older than me, & unfortunately, he never told me who authored the wise insight, above. Maybe him, I don’t know, but I never forgot that.

    Fyi, Dave Marsh wrote for The Village Voice and Rolling Stone Magazine, is in Cleveland’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
    I met Dave while he was a regular contributor to the late-Alexander Cockburn’s “Counterpunch.” He wrote terrific essays about contemporary Rock & Roll. For example, he did battle against the bullshit of “Deep Pockets” & Davos-jetsetter, & U2’s singer, Bono. (Refer to 2007 article, linked down below)

    Hope Dave Marsh is healthy, 🤔 & I wish he would try to become The Unz Review’s American music review-author. Meanwhile, am persuaded that Dave might reject my idea that there is no political solution that would end my country’s Supremacist Jew occupation.

    He did not like “The Shrub” and I would love to learn what he thinks about The Chosen One.

    Physicist Syksy Räsänen took to twitter following the news of Berlin’s ban of the Lebanese group to say that, “Germany’s ban on Hezbollah is a perfect illustration of how terrorist lists are tools of power politics”

    [MORE]

    Yes, the left is hypocritical too (as the Tara Reade episode quite clearly demonstrates), but there’s a difference. Leftists (and, for that matter, neocons) have clearly-defined goals; the lies and hypocrisies they employ have a practical purpose. For them, it’s the destination, not the journey. The MAGA right is the exact opposite: no vision, no goals, just an obsession with “tactics” and skirmishes. It’s the fight that matters. War! Weaponize! Bloodsports! Trump the insult comedian, Trump the master of the confrontational tweet and the raucous rally.

    But for what? What’s the goal, and has any of this nonsense helped us achieve it? Yes, we “defeated Killary.” MAGA Twitter still celebrates that like it was yesterday, with all-caps exhortations to “build the wall” and “drain the swamp” and “lock her up”…like it was January 2017.

    Well, it ain’t. And while we have no wall, we certainly have plenty of birthright citizenship, chain migration, foreign workers, and career swamp creatures. And plenty of dimwit pseudosoldiers playing political MMA because it’s short-term satisfying.

    Yes, we “beat Hitlary.” But for what purpose? Just for the sake of it? Foundationally, nothing has changed regarding immigration, and even with polls showing widespread support for an immigration moratorium in the wake of Covid, the best Trump can muster is a worthless memo that leaves the foreign-worker doors wide open.

    Wuhan lab mania is emblematic of all that’s unwell on the right: lots of tough talk by toddlers playacting James Bond, fighting phantom villains while accomplishing nothing in the real world as the actual villains skate. Principles ignored and goals betrayed because we become distracted by bright shiny objects and fantasy cosplay. Yeah, it’s a lot of fun to battle Chinese Frankenstein. And yeah, if anonymous sources and phony intelligence reports weren’t such easy fixes for evidentiary gaps, no one would use them. And if screaming “anti-Semite” weren’t effective, the ADL and SPLC would be out of business.

    26 Nebulous Russians who Mueller claims were involved. However he has never pursued his indictments since he does not want to reveal any of his evidence.

    This is simply more proof of an out of control DOJ and FBI so deeply corrupted by the Obama Regime.

    1 million dollars wasted by FBI in their investigation of DNC server.
    35 million dollars wasted by Mueller Investigation to prove Democrats were lying

    I understand your position, but is there anything worse for the President than being impeached/eliminated from the office by the insect that he defeated.

    I wonder what you are missing? 50% of people with COVID 19 are asymptomatic. They appear healthy. They are contagious. There are old people in COSCO and we wear a mask to protect them in case we have the virus and do not know it. It is pretty simple. We wear a mask to protect the vulnerable.

    Those two women with the grocerie may have a grandma at home and do not want to bring the virus home to her. Not wearing a mask is really the height of selfishness.

  185. I’m not convinced that Donald has been a thorn in the side of the ESTABLISHMENT.
    Why? It’s quite simple actually. His appointments/nominations.

    Donald is anything, but atypical despite what his mesmerized base believes.

    Comparing his administration to previous administrations. He has made more selections from the Council on Foreign Relations.

    Considering his “astonishing” victory (snicker) Hillary, the stage was set for an elaborate RUSE. Of course, any ruse worth its salt requires “opposition” and boy did the MSM, provide the opposition. But here’s the thing. Donald garnered more attention than all of the GOP’S presumptive nominees, combined.

    Donald was the perfect counterpunch to Obama. Donald is as infuriating to the left as Obama, was to the right.

    The ESTABLISHMENT, didn’t let an election slip by them nor did they allow the Serfs to win. If a list were comprised of some of Donald’s accomplishments without giving credit to him. One would be inclined to believe that a Democrat, has been in office. Ten trillion added to the national debt in four years. Taking the guns first, then maybe a little due process. Shuddering the economy and much more.

    Bottom line: have we been played, AGAIN?
