Just by asking the question of whether the next Presidential election matters, I am obviously suggesting that it might not. To explain my reasons for this opinion, I need to reset the upcoming election in the context of the previous one. So let’s begin here.

The 2016 election of Donald Trump

The first thing which, I believe, ought to be self-evident to all by now is that there was no secret operation by any deep state, not even a Zionist controlled one, to put Donald Trump in power. I would even argue that the election of Donald Trump was the biggest slap in the face of US deep state and of the covert transnational ruling elites this deep state serves. Ever. My evidence? Simple, look what these ruling “elites” did both before and after Trump’s election: before, they ridiculed the very idea of “President Trump” as both utterly impossible and utterly evil.

As somebody who has had years of experience reading the Soviet press or, in another style, the French press, I can honestly say that I have never seen a more ridiculously outlandish hate campaign against anybody that would come even close to the kind of total hate campaign which Trump was subjected to. Then, as soon as he was elected, the US neo-liberals (who are not liberals at all!) declared that Trump was “not their President”, that Trump was put into power by Putin and that he was a “Russian asset” (using pseudo-professional jargon is what journos typically do to conceal their abject ignorance of a complex topic) and, finally, that he was a White racist and misogynist who will deeply divide the country (thereby dividing the country themselves by making such claims).

The fact is that for the past four years the US liberals have waged a total informational war against Trump and it would be absolutely unthinkable for them to ever accept a Trump re-election, even if he wins by a landslide. For the US Dems and neo-liberals, Trump is the personification of evil, literally, and that means that “resistance” to him and everything he represents must be total. And if he is re-elected, then there is only one possible explanation: the Russians stole the election, or the Chinese did. But the notion that Trump has the support of a majority of people is literally unthinkable for these folks.

Truth be told, Trump has proven to be a fantastically incompetent President, no doubt about that. Was he even worse than Obama? Maybe, it really all depends on your scoring system. In my personal opinion, and for all his very real sins and failings, Trump, at least, did not start a major war, which Obama did, and which Hillary would have done (can’t prove this, but that is my personal belief). That by itself, and totally irrespective of anything else, makes me believe that Trump has been a “lesser evil” (even if far more ridiculous) President than Obama has been or Hillary would have been. This is what I believed four years ago and this is what I still believe: considering how dangerous for the entire planet “President Hillary” would have been, voting for Trump was not only the only logical thing to do, it was the only moral one too because giving your voice to a warmongering narcissistic hyena like Hillary is a profoundly immoral act (yes, I know, Trump is also a narcissist – most politicians are! – but at least his warmongering has been all hot air and empty threats, at least so far). However, I don’t think that this (not having started a major war) will be enough to get Trump re-elected.

Why?

Because most Americans still like wars. In fact, they absolutely love them. Unless, of course, they lose. What Americans really want is a President who can win wars, not a President who does not initiate them in the first place. This is also the most likely reason why Trump did not start any major wars: the US has not won a real war in decades and, instead, it got whipped in every conflict it started. Americans hate losing wars, and that is why Trump did not launch any wars: it would have been political suicide to start a real war against, say, the DPRK or Iran. So while I am grateful that Trump did not start any wars, I am not naive to the point of believing that he did so for pure and noble motives. Give Trump an easy victory and he will do exactly what all US Presidents have done in the past: attack, beat up the little guy, and then be considered like a “wartime President hero” by most Americans. The problem is that there are no more “little guys” left out there: only countries who can, and will, defend themselves if attacked.

The ideology of messianic imperialism which permeates the US political culture is still extremely powerful and deep seated and it will take years, probably decades, to truly flush it down to where it belongs: to the proverbial trash-heaps of history. Besides, in 2020 Americans have much bigger concerns than war vs. peace – at least that is what most of them believe. Between the Covid19 pandemic and the catastrophic collapse of the economy (of course, while the former certainly has contributed to the latter, it did not single-handedly cause it) and now the BLM insurgency, most Americans now feel personally threatened – something which no wars of the past ever did (a war against Russia very much would, but most Americans don’t realize that, since nobody explains this to them; they also tend to believe that nonsense about the US military being the best and most capable in history).

ORDER IT NOW

Following four years of uninterrupted flagwaving and MAGA-chanting there is, of course, a hardcore of true believers who believe that Trump is nothing short of brilliant and that he will “kick ass” everything and everybody: from the spying Russians, to the rioting Blacks, from the pandemic, to the lying media, etc. The fact that in reality Trump pitifully failed to get anything truly important done is completely lost on these folks who live in a reality they created for themselves and in which any and all facts contradicting their certitudes are simply explained away by silly stuff like “Q-anon” or “5d chess”. Others, of course, will realize that Trump “deflated” before those whom he called “the swamp” almost as soon as he got into the White House.

As for the almighty Israel Lobby, it seems to me that it squeezed all it could from Trump who, from the point of view of the Zionists, was always a “disposable President” anyway. And now that Trump has done everything Israel wanted him to do, he becomes almost useless. If anything, Pelosi, Schumer and the rest of them will try to outdo Trump’s love for everything Israeli anyway.

So how much support is there behind Trump today? I really don’t know (don’t trust the polls, which have always been deeply wrong about Trump anyway), but I think that there is definitely a constituency of truly frightened Americans who are freaking out (as they should, considering the rapid collapse of the country) and who might vote Trump just because they will feel that for all his faults, he is the only one who can save the country. Conversely, they will see Biden as a pro-BLM geriatric puppet who will hand the keys of the White House to a toxic coalition of minorities.

So what if Trump does get re-elected?

In truth, the situation is so complex and there are so many variables (including many “unknown unknowns”!) that make predictions impossible. Still, we can try to make some educated guesses, especially if based on some kind of logic such as the one which says that “past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior”. In other words, if Trump gets elected, we will get more of the same. Personally, I would characterize this “same” as a further destruction of the US from within by the Democrats and their “coalition of minorities” combined with a further destruction of the US Empire abroad by delusional Republicans.

I very much doubt that it makes any sense at all to vote for that, really. Better stay at home and do something worthwhile with your time, no?

Now what about a Biden election?

Remember that Biden is now the de-facto leader of what I would loosely call the “anti-US coalition”, that is the “coalition of minorities” which really have nothing in common except their hatred of the established order (well, and, of course, their hatred of Trump and of those who voted for him).

These minorities are very good at hating and destroying, but don’t count on them to ever come up with constructive solutions – it ain’t gonna happen. For one thing, they are probably too stupid to come up with any constructive ideas, but even more important is the fact that these folks all have a hyper-narrow agenda and, simply put, they don’t care about “constructing” anything. These folks are all about hatred and the instant gratification of their narrow, one-topic, agenda.

This also begs the question of why the Dems decided to go with Biden in spite of the fact that he is clearly an extremely weak candidate. In spite? I am not so sure at all. I think that they chose him because he is so weak: the real power behind him will be in the hands of the Schumer-Pelosi-Obama gang and of the interests these folks represent.

Unlike Trump who prostituted himself only after making it to the White House, the neo-liberal Dems have *already* prostituted themselves to everybody who wanted to give them something in return, from the Ukie Nazis to the thugs of BLM, to the powerful US homo-lobby. Don’t expect them to show any spine, or even less so, love for the USA, if they get the White House. They hate this country and most of its people and they are not shy about it.

What would happen to the US if the likes of Bloomberg or Harris took control? First, there would be the comprehensive surrender to the various minorities which put these folks in power followed by a very strong blowback from all the “deplorables” ranging from protests and civil disobedience, to local authorities refusing to take orders from the feds. Like it or not, but most Americans still love their country and loathe the kind of pseudo-liberal ideology which has been imposed upon them by the joint actions of the US deep state and the corporate world. There is even a strong probability that if Biden gets elected the USA’s disintegration would only accelerate.

On the international front, a Biden Presidency would not solve any of the problems created by Obama and Trump: by now it is way too late and the damage done to the international reputation of the United States is irreparable. If anything, the Dems will only make it worse by engaging in even more threats, sanctions and wars. Specifically, the Demolicans hate Russia, China and Iran probably even more than the Republicrats. Besides, these countries have already concluded a long time ago that the US was “not agreement capable” anyway (just look at the long list of international treaties and organization from which the US under Trump has withdrawn: what is the point of negotiating anything with a power which systematically reneges on its promises and obligations?)

The truth is that if Biden gets elected, the US will continue to fall apart internally and externally, if anything, probably even faster than under a re-elected Trump.

Which brings me to my main conclusion:

Why do we even bother having elections?

First, I don’t think that the main role of a democracy is to protect minorities from majorities. A true democracy protects the majority against the many minorities which typically have a one-issue agenda and which are typically hostile to the values of the majority. Oh sure, minority rights should be protected, the question is how exactly?

For one thing, most states have some kind of constitution/basic law which sets a number of standards which cannot be violated as long as this constitution/basic law is in force. Furthermore, in most states which call themselves democratic all citizens have the same rights and obligations, and a minority status does not give anybody any special rights or privileges. Typically, there are also fundamental international standards for human rights and fundamental national standards for civil rights. Minority rights (individual or collective), however, are not typically considered a separate category which somehow trumps or supplements adopted norms for human and civil rights (if only because it creates a special “minority” category, whereas in true “people power” all citizens are considered as one entity).

It is quite obvious that neither the Republicrats nor the Demolicans represent the interests of “we the people” and that both factions of the US plutocracy are under the total control of behind-the-scenes real powers. What happened four years ago was a colossal miscalculation of these behind-the-scenes real powers who failed to realize how hated they were and how even a guy like Trump would seem preferable to a nightmare like Hillary (as we know, had the Dems chosen Sanders or even some other halfway lame candidate, Trump would probably not have prevailed).

This is why I submit that the next election will make absolutely no difference:

  1. The US system is rigged to give all the power to minorities and to completely ignore the will of the people
  2. The choice between the Demolicans and the Republicrats is not a choice at all
  3. The systemic crisis of the US is too deep to be affected by who is in power in the White House

Simply put, and unlike the case of 2016, the outcome of the 2020 election will make no difference at all. Caring about who the next puppet in the White House will be is tantamount to voting for a new captain while the Titanic is sinking. The major difference is that the Titanic sank in very deep water whereas the “ship USA” will sink in the shallows, meaning that the US will not completely disappear: in some form or another, it will survive either as a unitary state or as a number of successor states. The Empire, however, has no chance of survival at all. Thus, anything which contributes to make the US a “normal” country and which weakens the Empire is in the interests of the people of the USA. Voting for either one of the candidates this fall will only prolong the agony of the current political regime in the USA.

    This observation suggests that one should vote for Biden if one votes at all. Perhaps if one is going to the election because there’s a particularly crucial vote for county board of supervisors candidates (very important, by the way) and you happen to be at the polls anyway, the fastest way to further the process of saying good riddance to the American empire is to vote for Joe Biden.

    Whoever gets elected will certainly affect details of how the ship sinks. Two consecutive elections with Gerontocrats. Neither of the two nominally different parties has a very deep roster evidenced by the poverty of options they have been putting forward.

    Given his decline, I don’t expect Biden to have a long presidency if he survives to officially get the nomination.

  3. Short answer: No.

  7. I rather like Saker’s characterization of the latest edition of the mostest important erection evaaahhh!!! as some fancy Titanic deck-chair feng-shui. The Saker, despite all his years here in the greasy pork-belly of the Rotten Banana Empire (which he so politely describes as the Anglo-Zionist empire), still sometimes misses the reality of the situation here. Not this time. He’s very much over the target, so we’ll no doubt be seeing some flak in these here comments (and indeed it’s already started I see).

    In our latest dispatch from The Clownworld Noose, we just read that our fearless federal badge-gang goondas finally arrested The Amazing Mr. Epstein’s longtime fellow child-procurer Ghisalaine Maxwell, and she might even be packed to the same ultra-max security in NYC where her missing paramour “hanged himself” – a “fact” even confirmed by the swampy son of his former employer Mr. Barr as ‘Math Whiz’ at an exclusive NYC Boys’ school. The ghost of Ray Charles has just informed me that he can see this one comin’ every bit as clearly as he did the last one.

    Trump stopped the health care payment
    Pulled us out of the TPP

    Renegotiated south korea and japan

    In rural Counties (Red America) an elected Sheriff is the chief local law officer. Watch for coalitions of Counties, within or across State lines, demanding secession or limited autonomy.

    That is the policy the Democratic Party supports.

    However, the recent actions of the Seattle Mayor shows the Democrats cannot control their own mobs–who eventually showed up at the mayor’s house. At that point the Mayor of Seattle did a Richard Daley imitation and had the cops fight back to reclaim CHAZ/CHOP land.

    Therefore, my prediction is the Democrats would focus on stealing as much money from the Treasury as possible while they lowered the mass media rhetoric.

    The greatest danger is that they would get the US involved in an endless stream of no-win wars to make the world safe for perverts.

  22. “Trump, at least, did not start a major war, which Obama did, and which Hillary would have done”

    Agreed. And Trump demolished the Bush crime family and the Clinton crime family, which is why he is hated.

    Trump is a mess, but Biden will be worse as he hasn’t the stamina to even question the warmongering deep state agenda.

    If they thought Trump might win, they would have rigged the elections, even more. I suspect they rigged Florida and Ohio to throw a million votes to Hillary, but that was not enough. They assumed Michigan and Pennsylvania were sure wins and Hillary didn’t even campaign in those states, so they didn’t bother to tweak the results there where it would have mattered.

    Per the Clinton gang, I was perusing my blog and given the corruption now confirmed in the Flynn case, will our media pursue this story?

    Dec 16, 2018 – Rogue FBI

    As a follow-up to my December 2nd blog post, our major media failed to report that last week:

    “The Justice Department and FBI have missed a Wednesday deadline to provide information about the government’s mysterious raid on a former FBI contractor-turned-whistleblower’s home last month. Sixteen FBI agents on Nov. 19 raided the home of Dennis Nathan Cain, who reportedly gave the Justice Department’s Inspector General (IG) documents related to the Uranium One controversy and potential wrongdoing by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    The documents in question allegedly showed that federal officials failed to investigate possible criminal activity related to Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, a Russian nuclear company. Its subsidiary purchased Canadian mining company Uranium One in 2013.

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, whose panel has oversight of the Justice Department, penned a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Justice Department IG General Michael Horowitz, requesting information on the justification for the raid. Grassley gave Wray and Horowitz until Dec. 12 to respond to his request. That deadline has come and gone, and neither the FBI nor DOJ has produced any documents or response.”

    Switzerland is the best example of democracy – Greek style.

    Roman (early middle ages) representative democracy is just evolutionary autocracy, no right to change laws directly, just a less spicy way to change the tyrant that rules you.

    In fact it’s even more autocratic, because in a revolutionary autocracy, change doesn’t imply “change”.

    “Pulled us out of the useless Climate accords” True, but I dont know why Trump has a brane cell capable of understanding the greatest science swindle of all time ‘Klimate Change’ (caused by humans, which it is NOT). So with all this in mind I guess a Biden presidency would have you Usians paying outrageous CO2 (criminal) TAX!! Biden probably makes a killing on (Carbon(CO2) Credits, a lovely criminal scam if there ever was one. Wake up USA. Aside.

  27. “Just by asking the question of whether the next Presidential election matters, I am obviously suggesting that it might not. To explain my reasons for this opinion, I need to reset the upcoming election in the context of the previous one. So let’s begin here.”

    Would the U.S. Navy have launched a cruise missile attack against the Shayrat airbase in Syria if Trump didn’t order it? Would Gen. Solemani have been assassinated if Trump didn’t order it? Of course the next presidential election “matters”…if we have one, that is.

    Now that the constitution and the rule of law are defunct and all power has been de facto consolidated into the office of president, whether we have WW3 or not (for example) depends almost exclusively on the character of the person in the White House.

    “The first thing which, I believe, ought to be self-evident to all by now is that there was no secret operation by any deep state, not even a Zionist controlled one, to put Donald Trump in power.”

    Seriously? So why did Comey undermine Clinton’s campaign and why didn’t Obama fire him for it? And why did Obama attack the Syrian Army at Deir Ezzor in Sept. 2016, an act that greatly escalated tensions with Russia and apparently scared some Sanders supporters into Trump’s camp, giving Trump a narrow margin of victory in three key states…which put him in the White House? Because shit happens?

    “I would even argue that the election of Donald Trump was the biggest slap in the face of US deep state and of the covert transnational ruling elites this deep state serves. Ever.”

    I would argue that you’ve been fooled. If that were actually the case, they would’ve impeached and removed him, right? Or they would’ve deployed a lone nut against him. Or he would’ve at least encountered some kind of meaningful political or legal opposition.

    “My evidence? Simple, look what these ruling ‘elites’ did both before and after Trump’s election: before, they ridiculed the very idea of ‘President Trump’ as both utterly impossible and utterly evil.”

    Talk is cheap. How come they didn’t seem to have a problem with his war crimes in Syria; or his moving the embassy to Jerusalem; or his attempts to start a war with Iran; or his trade war with China; or his attempt to starve Venezuela into submission; or his arming of Ukraine; or his withdrawal from the INF treaty; etc,?

    “As somebody who has had years of experience reading the Soviet press or, in another style, the French press, I can honestly say that I have never seen a more ridiculously outlandish hate campaign against anybody that would come even close to the kind of total hate campaign which Trump was subjected to.”

    Once again, talk is cheap. Why would the “deep state” “hate” him so much? Did he investigate 9/11? Did he end any wars, or pull out of NATO, or improve relations with Russia and/or China, or cut aid to Israel, etc.? No.

    But let’s say for the sake of argument that “they” really do “hate” him for some reason. So what? That doesn’t mean that they don’t want him as president, right? If they really do hate him then he may be just the person they need.

    A crucial question is what will emerge from the ashes?

    I believe if Trump wins re-election, it’ll help the forces in the future try to re-establish the pre-World War I federal republic. (After WWI, you really had self-styled US imperialists trying to take over the British Empire’s balance sheet.)

    Imagine how different the US Civil War would’ve played out if a Southern Democrat (think Biden) won the 1860 election. It would mean the cash cropping expansionist element of US politics having control of the Presidency during a potential civil war, a powerful edge. The longer the Deep State lacks unbridled direct control of the Presidency, the better.

    I believe Trump and Bernie Sanders are the best faction leaders the US possesses for dismantling the US Empire. (More, agreeable figures were phased out by the Deep State long ago.) But Trump and Sanders face the continuous dilemma of US Baby Boomers addicted to the fruits of financial empire. The Boomers are still the biggest demographic in the US. Starting in the 1980s onward, they established portfolio systems that extracted wealth via the US’s world reserve currency status.

    This marks the unholy covenant made by Wall Street and middle class Boomers. The Boomers are dying off, and taking the US Empire with it into the afterlife. The younger generation won’t receive a nickel, and that’s likely a good thing in the long term. But Trump and Sanders still can’t make aggressive economic reform while America is still dominated by “The United States of Boomer.” They can only pave the road for reform and future leaders to lead the charge.

    not quite right, Im afraid on several points. I will only take on 2 right now, more later.
    First, USA doesn’t need to/want to win wars. It needs to keep wars going for when it wins, he money toward the military industrial complex will stop. Case in point: North Korean war which is still technically a war, 70 years later. Afghanistan “war”, that has dragged for over 20 years now. The “war on terror” that cost between 3-5 trillion dollars and was never “won”. So no, USA doesn’t want to “win” wars. What it wants is to cause chaos and/or destruction. This is beautifully shown in both Iraq and Syria.

    Trump did accomplish several things.
    1. He has placed over 200 conservative judges around the country, and they will be setting conservative agenda for decades to come. He has so far placed 2 conservative judges on the supreme court and when Ginsberg finally collapses, he will maybe place a 3rd.
    2. He has beautiful helped Israel in EVERYTHING, giving them all the money they want and doing everything they want him to do.
    3. He has cut taxes for the rich and forced the FED to give trillions of credit to the banks, thus sending the stock market to dizzying heights, making the billionaires richer beyond their dreams.

    there is much more, but next time.

    The “toy radicals, and Champagne Bolsheviks” – in these terms of dripping disdain from Williamson – are very similar to those who rushed into the streets in 1917. But before dismissing them so peremptorily and lightly, recall what occurred.

    Into that combustible mass of youth – so acultured by their progressive parents to see a Russian past that was imperfect and darkly stained – a Trotsky and Lenin were inserted. And Stalin ensued. No ‘toy radicals’. Soft became hard totalitarianism.

  34. Hartnell says:

    I think there are some key differences here on what could take shape. If Biden wins, the Republicans can put down the Trump saga as a regrettable mistake and go back to being the boring old Jen Bush party moaning about lowering taxes for the rich and abortion.

    However if Trump wins, the Republicans will have to acknowledge that people support Trumpism and will have to start re orientating the party towards Trumpian Populism in future elections as they will realise that it is a permanent vote winner. Basically how they started to change themselves into becoming an evangelical Conservative party due to Reagan where as before, it was the Democrats who were the Conservatives.

    Even if they do this though, the Republicans are still going to remain the good old American majority white party so out right winning future elections after Trump is going to be very difficult. I think this all potentially bodes for a potential secession crisis in the future.

    However even if Trump wins, the Democrats may start to take notice and try to compete with the Republicans and start to moderate their policies, shifting away from Identity politics and embracing the populist waves and trying to alternate with a more centrist position. But considering all the crazy lefties in power within the party structure, this would be an incredibly difficult task, almost Herculean to achieve.

    So we could still be looking at a potential secession down the road.

    But we all have to admit one thing – Donald Trump, love him or loathe him, has changed ultimately the political face of politics for the better. Even though he actually has done very little, just the fact he got elected with his views really does go to show the people have had enough and want changes.

    This election means too much. One of the major reasons why Donald Trump got elected in the first place was because he is not a politician. Of course, after being elected, he had to comply with the Republican agenda, and had to appease major campaign donors. But President Trump is an egocentric who wants to be idolized, and is therefore much more attentive to the People than either the Republican or Democratic political parties. War is the agenda of politicians; the People of the US and every country in the World want only peace and prosperity. That was also Donald Trump’s perspective before he was forced to parrot the agenda. The Democrats, with their constant, shameful efforts to malign the President, have shown their true colors, and cannot be, for anybody with common sense, considered an alternative. He is now laying low for tactical reelection reasons. But hopefully, when he does get reelected, for his ego and the American People, he won’t hold back and will be doing some serious ass kicking.

    Saker – you started out by saying that it was a complete shock to the ruling elite when Trump won. I agree. You then described how the Left (and most on the Right) have made Trump’s presidency a living hell. I agree.

    Obama was treated with kid gloves because he’s an insider, a player. That’s the only reason he ended up in the White House; the elite sanctioned him and put him there.

    But Trump is not an insider and he wasn’t elite-approved. OF COURSE HE COULDN’T GET MUCH DONE! They didn’t let him. They have fought him every step of the way. After seeing what Trump has had to contend with, no outsider is ever going to attempt it again.

  53. It should be self evident to anyone in Jewmerica that has reached the age of accountability that the presidency is rigged. It is obvious that nothing changes no matter which side of the Republican- Democratic paradigm is in the front office. The Presidency of Jewmerica has been under the control of the Zionist Jews since they maneuvered the sypilitic mental case, Woodrow Wilson in by using Teddy Roosevelt to pull votes from Taft because he could not be reliably controlled by the Jews and opposed their no. 1 tool for conquest, the central banking cartel.

    This as noted is not a new development or unique to this country. Britain shuffled their own Jew controlled Aristocrats around since back in the 1800’s. The goyim need to think they are making a difference when both candidates are just puppet actors playing their role for the Zionist clique. Trump has always been under Jew control as was his crook father. Click on his court deposition he had to appear in before the Jews put him in office. This proped up adolescent womanizing amoral phony can barley string two sentences together, and he was supposed to be a high powered business tycoon. What a joke. Look at his top donors in the 2016 “race against the desiccated Zionist shill Hilary; N01, The Chabad Lubavich Kushner clan, no2. Sheldon “all I care about is Zionism” no3. Vulture Investor Paul Singer and n04. Home Depot founder Bernie Marcus, all Zionist Jews.

    Trumps first project after inheriting 250 million from his Jew shill father was in Manhattan with the Zionist Jew Pritskers that were instrumental in putting the “hope and change” nigger in office. Remember that great Presidential puppet actor. Trump has borrowed money from Soros (Swartz Gyorgy) another great Amer. and did not have to repay it. In the late 80’s the idiot Trump, underwater in the casino fiasco had a personal debt of 1.2 billion. Current Sec of Commerce Jew Wilbur Ross (then managing dir. of Rothschild Inc. for 25 years) bailed out this sybaritic imbecile with a huge infusion on Manhattan Jew bucks. They own Donald. He is just a proped up tool for the Jews and their Zionist Agenda. Nothing more. No wonder he ebulliently proclaims that “Israel never had a friend in the White House as good as I am.” He never misses an opportunity to praise Israel, march in the Jew parades or point out his “Tree of life Award” as he grovels at the Jews feet.

    I won’t take space to delve into the senile, life long servant of the Jews, the self proclaimed Zionist and career political shyster, Joe Biden. He has always served the Jews and has been amply rewarded for his “pleasures of sin for a season” as all top political puppets are. And this includes the big majority of Congress who supplicate themselves to aIPAC and the other Jew groups.

    Do not continue to delude yourself with the Presidential circus put on since 1910 by the Zionist Jews. Instead make every effort to elect real limited gov. constitutionalists in the House. The Jews have the Senate in their grip. We have to start where we can effect the most change closest to the people and where all bills of appropriation originate. That is our only chance to change course away from total global control by the Zionist criminal syndicate and back on the road to freedom and individual liberty.

    I totally agree and reject Saker’s argument that it doesn’t matter who wins the election. I only hope that, if Trump pulls out another win, he’ll have enough sense to pursue the Russia-friendly, antiwar, nationalist agenda that got him elected in the first place. And stop worrying about what the presstitutes say – they’ll always hate him no matter what he does.

    My dream is that the GOP wins the House and sends Pelosi the Witch to the basement. If that happens, there won’t be a Koch-brothers Speaker Ryan around to undermine Trump’s agenda. And, the GOP needs to dump Turtle Man as their Senate leader, and promote someone who could actually do the job, like the other Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. If those things happen, real progress could finally be made in saving what’s left of the country.

    At one point there wasn’t a “dime’s worth of difference” between the two parties, but, as the D’s have gone further and further White Man-hating crazy Left, that is no longer true today. The election of Biden will guarantee a radical left-wing minority female sitting in the White House (how much longer will that name last?) within six months.

    Imperial mindset is the property of the English ruling class. All of you “writers” are busy busy trying to pin the “empire” tail on USA but US never acted as an imperial power.

    US got into this position because the actual imperialists in Europe and Asia were having a recurring fight over the world — thus “world war” — and US organically belonged to one side and played its cards right and came on top. So did the Soviets.

    Sore butt losers were the English who were ‘denuded’ of their “Empire” — remember Sun never sets on her majesties subjects, Saker? — and finally in Suez got their nose rubbed in humble pie. They have never forgiven the Yanks for that!

    Agree with you analysis Mark, except the last paragraph. The American people cannot make change via the electoral process (see the 2014 Princeton University study which proves that fact). IMO, voters are better off not participating in what is essentially a corrupt system – and the more the vote can be driven down – the less legitimacy any victor can claim. Say, for instance the winning candidate gets elected with 25% of the total eligible voter base. That means 75% of eligible voters didn’t want that particular candidate as President. Anything less than 50% is not really a mandate to legislate a policy platform is it?

    That being said, clearly commenters on UR have never been in politics and so they can’t discern that the zionist-owned Trump uses the Dems, “the Fake Media”, “the Deep State”, “the swamp” etc, etc, as a cover for not doing this, or not doing that – whatever it is he’s promised.

    • Has he released the classified JFK documents as promised? If not, why not?
    • Has he completed that border wall? If not, why not?

    So, here’s my prediction of what will happen, NOV 4:

    1. Over these next 4 months the US media will ramp up their victimization/persecution of Trump and patriotic groups consisting of:
    – National Guards,
    – branches of the military,
    – state Police Departments,
    – state troopers,
    – FBI,
    – the diplomatic corps, and
    – the silent majority (Moms & Dads) – who have a vested interest in the USA as ‘a going concern’ with their family homes, life pensions, stocks, bank deposits, investments, shops, offices & factories, etc – will swing behind him – and he’ll get re-elected.

    None of these groups are simply going to sit by and watch everything they believe in get destroyed by a bunch of (paid) thugs/BLM rebels who have no real reform agenda to make life better for the American people.

    2. Then, after the election, that’s when the real ‘fun’ starts

    The Zio-media: the New York Times, Washington Post, CBS, MSNBC, ABC, etc will escalate their attacks on Trump to create a real sense of chaos the Dems playing their usual disgusting, treacherous role pandering to minority groups (see Strategy of Tension) – and then he’ll either be impeached, or he’ll resign (hopefully not assassinated) and V-P Pence will take over.

    Q: Now, why is it important to keep Pence in the frame?, I hear you ask.

    A: Because even before Trump was elected, the Republican ‘establishment’ wanted Pence, the war-hawk and Christian-Zionist (a contradiction in terms, if ever there was one!) to become President. Pence even wants women back in the kitchen and return America socially to the 1950’s, btw, (see The Handmaid’s Tale for an approximation of where I’m going with all this).

    And as has been attributed to Sinclair Lewis, HL Mencken and several others:

    “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying the cross.”

    3. And that’s when the first large economically-sustainable states e.g., California or Texas or New York or Pennsylvania or Georgia will seek to break out of the Union – and take their smaller neighboring states with them in blocs.

    4. And in a futile attempt to prevent a dissolution of the Union from happening, Federal troops will be brought in – and that’s when the first shots of the next civil war will be fired.

    Now that the constitution and the rule of law are defunct and all power has been de facto consolidated into the office of president, whether we have WW3 or not (for example) depends almost exclusively on the character of the person in the White House.

  68. “The fact is that for the past four years the US liberals have waged a total informational war against Trump…”

    No, not a “total informational war against Trump” but a conspicuously partial informational war against Trump.

    They have no problem with his various war crimes and endless provocations against Russia, China, Iran and Venezuela. They have no problem with his withdrawing from the INF treaty and starting an arms race that puts the whole world in great danger. They choose to focus on his failure to wear a mask in public, for example, while ignoring that he’s brought the world to the brink of WW3. And this should be an important clue as to what’s going on here yet it somehow escapes “The Saker” just like it apparently escapes other pundits e.g. Paul Craig Roberts.

    “…and it would be absolutely unthinkable for them to ever accept a Trump re-election, even if he wins by a landslide.”

    If it is so “absolutely unthinkable” then why don’t they run somebody against him who’s not showing signs of senile dementia, for example?

    In any case it seems Trump’s handlers and enablers realize that he will likely not be reelected no matter who they run against him, so they’re pulling out all the stops to get some kind of a major war started before the end of his term. In desperation they installed him in the White House and in desperation they now seek to force a major war before we go back to government by opportunistic-career-politician-puppet-rulers.

    You are not a real human being but a mask wired for sound reading a script. It does not require any acumen to see that the CIA establishment, which is run by Israel, carried out the murder of Soleimani and Trump was told about it after the fact, and was told “you own it.” He could not very well admit that he, “the President” is mostly a powerless toy who cannot control anything but a small nuance of what is done in his name.
    The same way “On the morning of 7 April 2017, the United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from the Mediterranean Sea into Syria, aimed at Shayrat Airbase controlled by the Syrian government. The strike was executed under responsibility of U.S. President Donald Trump, as a direct response to the Khan Shaykhun chemical attack that occurred on 4 April.”
    You and everyone knows that there was no “chemical attack,” and that Shayrat was empty. The US “missile response” was, on the one hand, an attempt to “save face” having been outmaneuvered and lost the Isis gambit, and on the other to test Russian missile defenses for technical purposes, for the upcoming war. In all these cases Trump has to “take responsibility” or admit that all he controls is what is served for lunch.
    Make believe is all fine and good, but you people are the forces of darkness kidding yourselves and the rest of us into oblivion.

    “Care to elaborate? I have witnessed the exact opposite – governors and county autocrats attempting to either undermine, ignore, bypass, or outright defy POTUS.”

    Of course I was referring to the de facto cession of the federal legislative and judicial power to the executive (a process which began before the political ascendancy of Trump), and the fact that international treaties and agreements to which the United States is a party, demonstrably no longer mean anything.

    And for the icing on the cake (i.e. the consummation of the degenerative process which began before Trump) the fake president was charged with “abuse of power” and “obstruction of congress” – in a fake impeachment trial – and was acquitted, thus proving to the rest of the world (if anymore proof was necessary) that the concepts of “separation of powers”/”checks and balances”/”rule of law” have been replaced by the concept of rule by the psychotic impulses of an unaccountable, politically omnipotent psychopath.

    I believe you are correct as far as a political solution, because the great majority of goyim do not understand that the Zionists control both sides of the fake political spectrum. Because of that the desperate situation we are in (and has been developing for a long time as planned) will not be changed. That would take a “moral and enlightened people.”

    Pence is just another fake “born again Catholic” whatever that is, Zionist opportunist. Wether he moves into the top puppet actor position or a Zionist Dem. is irrelevant. I don’t believe that there will be a breakup or a civil war. The murderer and sodomite Lincoln destroyed the states constitutional right of secession. The Zionists want to keep all the cattle in the same pasture so they can be herded along together.

    The Zionists will use some type of manufactured crisis. Some kind of Hegelian Dialectic thesis – antithesis will be used to move the goys into Agenda 2030-21. Ultimately they have to eliminate property rights as Marx (Moses Mordecai Levy) and Lenin called for. The fake virus as the cover for the current Global (Jew) banker theft of 6 trillion (similar to the 08 bailout for billionaires) has worked surprisingly well to further impoverish many and bankrupt businesses. They will continue to use this scam. I don’t think it will be powerful enough however.

    I believe the Zionists will fall back to their usual war tactic. Once Russia and China become powerful enough militarily, look for them to join forces against Jewmerica for a stalemate war. This manufactured crisis would allow for a U.N. “global solution.” Then all the cattle will be herded into “The Sustainable Development Initiative” prepared for them.

    Trump was elected on an immigration reform platform. The “build the wall” chants at his rallies had nothing to do with economics. Ann Coulters spruiking for Trump was about immigration not economics.

    Whether Trump failed on immigration because of a lack of will or a lack of backup by the republican side of The Party is irrelevant. It just means voting is pointless either way.

    It’s hard to see much enthusiasm being manufactured on either side of the manufacturerd political divide this election. Biden is an incoherent clown and Trump is a known quantity now unable to claim future greatness like he did in 2016.

    Elections rarely matter, but this one actually could make a difference. Replacing Trump puppet with Biden puppet won’t change Federal actions, because Federal actions NEVER change. But the replacement WILL change the media. As soon as Biden puppet is in office, the media will IMMEDIATELY stop creating panic and fear, and the lockdowns and masks will subside if not quite disappear. It’s worth campaigning and voting for Biden.

  77. Trump did not start “a major war”. But the biggest war for the US is yet to come. The current presidency is moving towards confrontation with China, and Russia, as the two are becoming more closely aligned. But this process was not initiated by President Trump, but back in the 1990s. The journey can be long, the traveler can doze off, only to wake to the nightmare of doomsday – nuclear Armageddon.

    Well look what’s talkin’: a mindless, Borg-like-zionist-automaton-troll! ROTFL!

    “It does not require any acumen to see that the CIA establishment, which is run by Israel, carried out the murder of Soleimani and Trump was told about it after the fact, and was told ‘you own it.’”

    For the Nth time: In that case why didn’t “the CIA establishment run by Israel” assassinate Soleimani when Obama was president? Why didn’t the embassy get moved to Jerusalem or Syrian land be given to Israel or the INF treaty be repudiated or Venezuela be starved or self-destructive trade war with China be started, etc.,when Obama was president?

    Your “reasoning” has been thoroughly debunked ad nauseum; give it up. (I will likely not waste any more time arguing absurdities with you).

  80. Great analysis as usual. However, let me point out some problems with what you’ve written. First, Americans do love wars but they don’t care about winning. The US military corrupt and incompetent as it is the most popular by a mile of any us institution. Americans love the military as an idea. That idea is that it represents, theoretically and mythically, the ultimate struggle between “good guys” and “bad guys” which fully mature military officers use to represent “them” and us. Since military conflicts are out of sight and out of mind and the mainstream media lies so blatantly and the collective memory is no longer than a few months it is possible that no matter how obvious the defeat or obvious the corruption to you an me who follow events the vast majority of Americans only see movies of the glory of the US military and covert operatives and quickly forget war-crimes/massive violations of the Geneva Conventions on War, defeat, and so on in favor of the fantasy/myth represented in commercials for military recruitment.

    Second, the idea that so-called minorities represented by BLM and so on can or will have power in Washington is absurd. These groups are used and have been used by the corporate oligarchs as a way to divide the working and middle classes–making grand gestures of “solidarity” with BLM (always a corporate oriented group) means nothing. The grand movement of wealth from the working and middle classes towards the 0.001% will continue inexorably as it has since the late 70s whether the RP or the DP is in power. As far as the oligarchs are concerned manipulating popular culture through mind-control techniques (using the smartest human on Earth) will keep their people in power. Trump was a slight interruption

    Trump himself was boxed in a corner very quickly by the purge of Flynn and his refusal to vet staff. He had no choice but to blunder from one thing to another with ALL of Washington and Hollywood solidly against him. The positives that he brought, however, to the his Presidency was that he showed in high relief the nature of the Deep State–even the term was largely forbidden (I was kicked out of a liberal/progressive blog, in part, for using the term “Deep State”). We saw through the Russiagate fiasco the reality that the US mainstream media is primarily kind of Ministry of Truth not an “objective” institution that sought truth. Like the American love for the military, most Americans will go along with the media Narrative because all societies need narratives, myths, and commons frames of reference–so even if most people see (with their lying eyes) the reality of the propaganda organs, they’ll still “believe”. Trump, as you said blustered and bloviated on going to war but never really did–he was the dove in the administration–he hired people like Pompeo and Bolton in order to keep from being eaten by the Deep State. Trump had to spend all his time in office out-foxing the operatives within his administration from destroying or even killing him. The Deep State does not play nice.

    Trump has absolutely no chance of winning in November. People in this country are just tired of conflict and are ready to give the Deep State all the power it wants as long as they can rule. It is likely that the Senate will turn blue and we will have one party rule. The Republican demographic is, at present, neither large nor enthusiastic enough to be of much help. As for the coalition of minorities, they have no chance to go beyond the ghettos and if they come around here trying to burn anything down they will be met by a lot of veterans who are armed to the teeth–so I don’t see much cultural change outside the coasts and large urban areas. Meanwhile Covid will continue to disrupt life, drug ODs will increase, access to health-care will be reduced, and we are headed for a very new dispensation that may involve a dissolution of the country.

  81. While I agree with the author’s conclusions I disagree that “…most Americans still like wars.”

    No. I think that we hate them, hate to send our children to die/be ripped apart for a bunch of old scumbags who are in the pockets of the Defense Industry, hate to see us reviled by the World, hate to see our Blood & Treasure spent on people who despise us and hate to pay for it all.

    Sadly, the author’s conclusions are spot-on. There is no remedying this disaster; we are in our final days as a coherent Nation. This is “Operation Enduring Clusterfuck” writ large. As the acronym goes, “TINVOWOOT.”

    The best that I can see is Balkanization–with or without preliminary/local & regional shooting–with division along racial lines. Give blacks the cities that they inhabit now in great numbers, give them a region (with ocean access) and have people move to “Red” and “Blue” states according to their race/safety/beliefs. Trade–or war–will follow as a natural consequence.

    But, Blacks need to know that when THEY riot their cities burn; when Whites riot entire CONTINENTS burn.

    Trump got elected for two main issues he pledged during his 2016 campaign: ending all foreign wars and greatly reducing immigration.

    On ending foreign wars and bringing home the troops, he’s failed. Since he took office he’s been dialing up the heat to the verge of war with Iran, NK, China, Russia, Venezuela, and we still have troops everywhere incl. in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. Meanwhile all the trade war jabs with China is just Kabuki theater. The intention is not to bring back manufacturing as he claimed but to blackmail the CCP into handing over control of China’s banks to the globalist bankers. His overt pandering to Israel at every turn is nauseating. I suspect Mossad has him by the balls when they seized all records from his Jewish attorney.

    On immigration, again nothing like what he promised. He has drastically reduced asylum seeking, but illegal immigration reached a record under his watch until he thankfully won an important quick deportation law against those who failed asylum app. His border wall is still largely not visible. After four long years, he is finally doing something about legal immigration, but his temporary suspension of H1b visas and green cards until the end of the year may be too little too late to save him, and he still hasn’t done anything to suspend OPT and EB5. I fear this is all just for show. Immediately after he gets reelected, he will feel all generous and remove all those restrictions.

    But the alternative is unthinkable. Biden will immediately resume all ME wars as directed by Israel. He is as compromised as Trump, Mossad already has him by the balls with his bribery scandals in Ukraine and China through his son. Zionists/deep state like to have dirty politicians elected, the dirtier the better, as the easier it is for them to be blackmailed.

    The question is will his followers feel enthusiastic enough to come out and vote?

    Even though Foreign Policy supposedly the President’s prerogative, in this case his hands were tied behind his back, such that even low level functionaries were opposing his policies quite openly. The military were running rings around him when he wanted to reduce military presence in the Occupied countries. In fact he was coerced into bombing some facilities in those countries based on fake incidents. What Trump had promised his electorate, he could not deliver. He is a failure. The Blob defeated him at every turn. In fact by appointing the likes of Pompeo he became even less powerful, if that is possible.

    Your error here lies in thinking Trump is anything more than a teleprompter-reader. The military does not take or obey orders from Cheetohead, whose “command” is to serve as Ringmaster in the Clownworld Circus which many are enjoying from the Peanut Gallery. The top of the chain of command is not the white-house, though it might pass through Trump’s Satanic son-in-law Kang Jared, spouse of Queen Esther. Those at the top of the chain (who likely wear very tiny hats) could be telling Kang Jared what orders to give the stooges wearing gold stars in the Pentagon who in turn order the hapless grunts of the Invincible Banana Legions to carry out their orders (usually lawless and evil). The drooling morons mal-edumacated in the Murikan publick schuls then get to think their nominal president is then “commander in chief”.

    Trump is forever making tweets or remarks about getting out of far-flung places like the poppyfields of Pashtoonistan, bringing the legions home to guard the border, etc. Two minutes later it’s all reversed. I can’t even count the number of times he’s announced the Banana legion’s withdrawl from Syria – a totally lawless adventure which has nothing whatever to do with the security of the Banana homeland – only to reverse course and launch some airstrikes or missiles. Of course Syria is very high on the list of the non-existent lobby which cannot be named which operates on behalf of the 666th state – the smallest tail which wags the biggest hound.

    As one of the other writers on Mr. Unz’s fine site noted recently, Trump has turned out to be the “worst literal Hitler imaginable”. He’s even worse than the clown who portrayed der führer of the NSDAP in the imaginary Broadway production Springtime for Hitler.

    “The deep state, which HRC ran as Secretary of State, was not loyal to her and, by magic I guess, got Trump elected? Doesn’t make sense any sense on its face.”

    Allow me to explain: When we have a presidential election, only one person can win, and that means the other candidates have to lose.

    Maybe an example will help drive the point home. You’ll agree with me that Obama was a servant of the “deep state,” right? And you’ll agree with me that John McCain was also a servant of the “deep state,” right? Yet in the 2008 presidential election, “deep state” agent McCain lost to “deep state” agent Obama. So how do you explain that? The “deep state” was not “loyal” to McCain and by some “magic” Obama got elected?

    No. The only logical explanation is that the “deep state” has subverted our political process to the extent that only the most trusted/rigorously vetted candidates can become the nominees of the two major parties. Thus the “deep state” “wins” no matter who gets elected, but in general, one of the two major party candidates is deemed more useful than the other, under the circumstances – and is therefore selected to be president – and the other major party candidate is just a stage prop.

    I hope this clears things up.

    While I agree with The Saker on many of his points I cannot disagree more strongly with his statement and feeling that voting does not matter and that who gets elected to the Presidency is immaterial.

    I am 67 1/2 and was a life long Democrat until after Trump was elected. The behavior of the Democrats and the MSM is so over the top that I could not believe it and that was a couple years ago.

    It made me realize I had made many mistakes hoping for something good to happen when all that the American People was shit. President Trump has been placed in a situation that only a Genius and perhaps God’s Messenger with the help of some kind of God could be the only individual that could survive.

    Nonetheless he has survived an onslaught of vicious and savage attacks that are beyond any I have seen or heard about in my lifetime. The scum that are now know as the DNC, Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, Schumer, and the Deep State are now in the most desperate of times. The walls are closing in and the Virus Hoax was released. Then came the riots of the Negros and White Trash Morons and the ass-kissing by the Politicians whom you no longer recognize as human. The Self Immolation of Corporations is the most amazing thing to witness but its true. They are all eating their own and will behave like the panicked passengers on the Titanic.

    I do have some last hope for Humanity and Western Civilization to continue. That being said the only Candidate you can vote for is Trump. Electing Biden or any other Democrat is Suicide not just for yourself but for the future of Humanity and Western Civilization. This was clear to me in April and now it is absolutely clear.

    Even with the election of Trump there is likely going to be a Civil War. But at least with Trump if Sanity prevails things could be fixed. Otherwise, there is no hope.

    China, Russia and the rest of the World will only breathe a sigh of relief at the Self Immolation of the US of A. And then forget about it and go on with life.

    If elections could change anything, they would not be allowed.
    Personally, I think Trump (who I did not vote for) entered into the presidency with good intentions. However, after getting the deep state talk on that first day, he, like most recent presidents, realized the limitations of his presidential power, and that crossing the deep state would result in being (as Obama once said off the cuff–didn’t vote for him either) JFKed. The only president other than Kennedy who challenged the PTB was Nixon, and watergate was his CIA assassination. Every thing that happens is pre planned, but it seems as the deep state/ PTB/ globalist have gotten more than a little worried, so the time line is being compressed. Piled on higher and deeper until the unwashed masses cry out in unison for the “GOVERNMENT” to save them.

    Even though the results in November will matter little to the “PLANS”, you can bet that there will be BITS no matter who the computers decide is the winner.

    In retrospect, it looks like Trump made a mistake by running against the swamp and then believing that the swamp would just come around and help him be President. Trump has done the service of proving that winning elections is irrelevant. The swamp governs the country and it’s a lot bigger than anyone imagined. It includes all governments everywhere at every level. It also includes the big media and the educational system.

    Having said that, I think he’ll win again and he’ll face four more years of flailing and failing. He’ll be the last dying gasp of the Boomer generation’s attempt to be relevant. I say that as a fully entitled Boomer.

  117. It is indeed shameful that narcissistic moron Trump is the sanest person among the US politicians. They are all corrupt and narcissistic, but most Dems appear to be insane at the same time. Biden is simply senile (used to be corrupt before he lost his marbles). The Empire will slide further down regardless who is in the White House. Dems will cause an irreparable destruction of the US as a country, as well. Senile Biden is a perfect “leader” for that. So, what’s to be done? Pinch your nose and vote Trump, as never-Trumpers are also scum, and much more despicable.

    Comment: Political forces are coalitions — communities of interest — not monolithic entities. There were undoubtedly factions to which the campaign to deny him the election by slander was the preferred outcome. But gambling, in politics, is THE four-letter word (“RISK”). This is why both sides are routinely backed by lobbies: so that they are poised to benefit no matter which way matters turn out.

    The short-term win/loss is of less importance to the anti–Trump forces than the eventual outcome, in which this was only one campaign (recall here the Fabian socialist strategy). In the big picture, exascerbating the divisions being created and driving the Trump supporters even further toward armed resistance is the big win. In the long run, the real goal is civil war. In light of which, what people used to thinking like sports fans take to be a loss for the Bolshevics was, in retrospect, mission accomplished.

This Presidential circus has been staged by the Zionist Jews since the syphilitic nervous wreak, Wilson was placed in office. Both Trump and Biden make excellent candidates for the Jews because neither of them has the intelligence or the moral integrity to do anything other than what their Zionist handlers instruct them.

    The USA was founded as a democratic republic.

    It was founded as such, but isn’t anymore.

    U.S. was converted to a money controlled democracy with Woodrow Wilson’s progressive era acts.

    The 16’th amendment of direct taxation is to bail out banks (remember TARP?)

    17’th amendment is direct election of Senators, which is against the first articles of Constitution. (First articles basically mean don’t touch this.) Senators sent by state legislatures (not directly elected by voting) empowers the states increasing Federalism. Direct voting of Senators per 17’th is populism, and emotion, and hence your vote is influenced with money and advertisements. The house was to be populist, not the Senate.

    Federal Reserve Act and IRS rounded out WWilson’s destruction of U.S. Thanks Jews who funded the bull moose party to then split election of 1912 and get their man Wilson into power.

    All of these progressive acts work together like gears of a machine, to then install money power over the polity, and hence”people” became easier to maneuver with money.

    Lobbyist money controls politicians today, along with compromat no doubt. The deep state was funded into existence.

    Banksters love democracy, and U.S. Federalism was overcome in stages, including war.

    The U.S. is not a Federal Republic. Power was centralized in Washington. Growth in the central state grows exponentially after Woodrow Wilson, then world wars to establish new debts.

    A Federal Republic is a flat structure, not pyramidal. States would be more like countries with enormous local power and economy if the U.S. was still a Federal Republic.

    he will go to war with Persia!

    If the decision is up to Trump, he won’t.

    Recall the history of Iranian retaliation for the criminal murder of Soleimani. Iran shelled an American military base in Iraq, and the response was: lots of hot air, series of lies where the numbers of affected American servicemen was gradually increased from zero to over a hundred, and – nothing else.

    Recall the story of five Iranian tankers that brought gasoline and additives for its refinement to Venezuela. Lots of stink at the beginning, and then imperial MSM simply went mum about it. Al Jazeera reported that mad heads were cooled by two Russian submarines that graciously allowed themselves to be detected by the US Navy in the vicinity of these tankers. All five tankers arrived unmolested.

    Now another tanker story is unfolding: four more Iranian tankers are en route to Venezuela with more gasoline. Right now we are in the stink stage: a court in DC ordered an arrest of these tankers. My bet is that the story will be the same as before: stink followed by silence, and no action. Chances are that Russian or Chinese submarines will reveal themselves in the vicinity, and the Empire will slink away once more with its tail between its legs.

    These stories suggest that Trump and/or military brass are sane enough not to engage in real action, lest the impotence of the “strongest military in the world” is revealed. Then the sheeple might start wondering where more than seven hundred billion dollars are going every year. The thieves won’t let that happen.

    You forgot one of the most important changes to our system. In 1962 the Supreme Court declared that it would decide how states and local governments ought to be organized. Most states had a bicameral legislature with one house represented by population units and the other by geographical units. The Court had considered such decisions beyond its jurisdiction based upon the idea that it wouldn’t get into political matters. Then, through the sixties, after declaring the principle “one man, one vote” (an entirely meaningless phrase when subjected to any analysis whatsoever), it basically decided that the big cities would control all state decisions.

    What followed were urban renewal abominations, payoffs to inner city punk organizers, affirmative action and welfare.

Of course that is exactly what the Zionist Jews have been working on since W. Wilson’s Jew handlers took control of the Executive.

    Now we have all of these simps posting about how Trump did this or didn’t do that. The adolescent baboon Trump does what the Zionist Jews tell him while he tries to project a conservative image. He is nothing but a shill for the Jews and their Zionist Agenda. That is why he was placed in office. On the other side of the political paradigm the Zionist Democrats are the same thing. They just attempt to project a different image while both sides assume a phony adversarial conflict for the goyim. The Jews said they would put puppets as leaders of all the countries.

    Mark, you and I are mostly on the same page. However, I would venture to suggest that the Cabal has already planned for a breakup of the USA.

    Look where the Fed has its 12 Federal Reserve banks throughout the US – in the regional hubs:
    The plan always was to control the US – using the City of London (the 1 mile² of banksters’ HO’s) and Wall St to gain control over the nation’s money supply, i.e. the lifeblood of the economy – suck it dry – and use it to establish the zionist entity as an emerging regional power in the Mideast – to control the World Island (see Mackinder’s Heartland Theory) & hence, world trade.

    Here on UR, I’m amazed that the 1996

    A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm

    has never been heard of, much less discussed.

    Reading it, exposes how long in advance, these plans are laid – the removal of Saddam Hussein (2003) and the current proxy war in Syria (2011- present). Before that remember was the 1982 Oded Yinon Plan.

    My point is, Eretz Y’israel (aka Promised Land, Greater Israel Project) was always the goal of the Rothschild dynasty’s planning! And by knocking off the US as the world’s only superpower and with a subservient EU, there will be no geopolitical force capable of standing up to the zionist entity with its nuclear warheads trained on every European capital – other than China, that is! (Russia is compromised, as there’s so many Russian-born jews now living in the zionist entity).

    To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

    Cheers!

    The Democrat Zionist Obama had served two terms. It was time to put a Republican puppet actor in so the goyim would think that now they had elected a real “make Amer. great again” conservative. Most of them as well as lots simps posting on this site never figure out that all of the Presidential election and their actions in office are scripted by the Zionists. That is why nothing ever changes. Had Hillary been elected there would have been no difference.

    The Zionists are careful to make it appear is if Trump just can’t get anything done. Or that he is too incompetent. The Democrats are in the way. None of these excuses interfere with the Zionist Agenda of more arbitrary controls, more thefts for the global sovereign bankers, more gov. intrusion, bigger budgets and more spending and more wars required by the Yinnon Plan for Greater Israel.

    Problem is, people are so greedy, that media has forced parents to work both their butts off, so they can afford that nice SUV, and or super nice house; both parents get educated at expensive universities, so they can go to Cancun, and participate in debauchery, and harlotry, and come back home, meet a man whom also was so reared, and get a good paying job, to afford all those luxuries, and have some one else, care for the children. If they stay together, and or divorce and find some else who also is divorced and keep going, rearing offspring which will go on with same or worst decadent life. Some consider that a “good life”. Things are upside down. I was talking with my neighbor who is from Ohio, and he told me how he was reared back in the old days. Hardship, hard work from his youth, etc. How times have changed. Now a day, parents provide all sort of stuff to their kids, and often to their step children, giving them all the want. Once, a psychologist from Mexico city, told me “El que a su hijo mucho consiente, esta creciendo una serpiente”. “He who spoils his children too much, is growing snakes”. How true!
    The point is, kids now a days have not the ability to scrutinize and process the info in their hands. In an age of so much information, our ability to discern logically has fallen way down. However, for whom should we vote? Options please. I don’t really like Trump, but I dislike Biden more; Same thing last time.

    If the “system was rigged…..”, every facet of the US system would be controlled or “rigged” to be controlled by minorities. What he fails to admit, is that the uprising by “minorities” has been exposed as a ploy by factions within US Society to further damage Trump’s reputation and minimize his chances of reelection.

    His relentless rant against the “…….stupid minorities” exposes his racism regardless of what he claims to have supported in the past. What he doesn’t also admit, is that the violence and destruction of property was not the work of minorities only. This was initially stoked by shady white characters in black woody outfits. What he fails to acknowledge is that these shady characters were exposed by minorities for fear of the very reason that he now accuses them of!

    Voting legitimates a corrupt electoral system!

    In actual practice, political parties spend considerable effort in confusing the independent vote. Political parties give their coalition members hard cash/goods — tax reduction for Republicans, welfare / favorable criminal law for Democrats. Their coalition members are in it for the money, no more, no less, and will vote for the party that pays them (The party that pays together, stays together). If no independents vote at all, then the party that can assemble the largest paid coalition wins. That would be a very corrupt electoral system.
    Could such an electoral system maintain its legitimacy?
    Consder that NY State and NYC City just finished killing very many “assisted living” people and is still legitimate. About 10,000 died, according to https://www.wgrz.com/article/news/health/coronavirus/watchdog-group-new-york-state-covid-death-toll-in-nursing-homes-may-be-much-higher-than-reported/71-6483dfbc-373f-4c06-82e3-7520be444e43 .

    In safely distant US history, the “paid coalition” system was responsible for the “Era of Good Feelings”, a time of hegemonic Democratic-Republican dominance that was ended by the US Civil War. The end was from independent Northern and Western voters deciding that they didn’t want slavery in the South, and perhaps by questions about who would get the new territory from the Mexican War and whether California would be integrated into the US by building a Transcontinental Railway. Also, professional politicians who had been booted out of the coalition were a bit unhappy. In any event, the US ended up with about 1.6 million casualties (both sides), and the impoverishment of the South, where most of the former slaves continued to live. Good old independent voters swamped the corrupt Democratic-Republican paid coalitions, and bingo- 1.6 million casualties. Eventually, this resulted in our current situation. Be careful what you ask for.

    Look: everyone in the country has a million reasons to hate trump. But the fact is, if this fat orange bastard loses in november, that’s when the real killing will start. Black people WILL come to your house and slaughter you. If you resist in any way, you’ll be arrested and charged with murder. I say “arrested” and “charged”–quaint terms of art from actual nations with an actual system of law and order–but the fact is you’ll just be disappeared down a hole and nobody will ever hear from you again. Then they’ll come for your family. It’s that simple. END of analysis.

    And it will matter not in the least if you live at the corner of chicago and lake in minneapolis or some cabin in the woods in dense wyoming/montana. They by God WILL come for you and they will kill you. Who’s going to stop them?

    I know the 14 year old dipshit who wrote this article thinks he’s really really smart with his thpolithical anthythis. But we’re beyond having anything to do with politiths. Got it? Analyzing this or any upcoming election “politically” is a decadent, laconic exercise engaged in by people who come from more or less stable nations and societies and thereby have the luxury of triteness. That is NOT what america 2020 is right now. Animalistic, violent black people, along with their coiterie of fat assed mentally ill white women and other assorted faggots and child-molesters are rampaging, rioting, killing, burning and destroying any and all semblance of the historic american nation. They are buttressed, fully supported and given LEGAL cover by a equally corrupt and dangerous mob of wall st., multi-national corporations, effete hand-wringing academics, legal types and other assorted bohemian grove-ers.

    Forget about whining about the carried interest tax or health care or the courts–quiet, peace loving people are no longer able to just live a simple quiet productive life. Can’t go to work. Can’t even leave their house without risking sanction and arrest. And when they’re in their own house, bothering absolutely no one, the mob finds them, trespasses against them and threatens their life. No, this election is about nothing less than simple survival for normal people.

    Biden has already said (not that he needed to) that on day one of his administration, he would essentially flick a switch and instantly legalize 100 million illegal aliens. The people are ALREADY HERE. And that, will be that. America will be under permanent one party rule. It will be south africa and the killing will start. We are being set up for nothing less than a genocide, a white genocide. And the fatt assed white woman–the “allies”–rampaging thru the streets right now–will be quite surprised to find themselves bleeding out in a ditch somewhere as well, after being raped and stabbed. Funny thing about marxists–but then the first people lenin and his boys killed once they took over russia were the labor union heads. Useful idiots, said the commies as they ran them thru the wood chipper. You actually think you’re going to get a job, go to school, buy property, open a business in joe biden’s america, if you’re white?? You will have NO status and you’ll be running for your life.

    It’s weird–when you look around at the carnage everywhere, at the blatant, transparently retarded big lies and hoaxes, the destruction of the economy, of the culture, of the nation, of peoples lives, all done to get one man, donald trump out of office, doesn’t it lead you to consider, for even just one second, that maybe he’s onto something?? If they’re going to these unprecedented lengths to beat this one man in an election, doesn’t it make you stop and think that maybe, just maybe he’s got to be doing something right?? What are they so afraid of? If he’s as bad and “liberal” and ineffectual as all the disgruntled’s on the right or center believe, then why would they be doing all this to get him out of office? Why not just act normal and let the election take its course–they won’t lose either way, right? Certainly not the way it comes off. It’s very weird.

    This election isn’t about hurt feelings or your baby-ish, infantile emotions or how you feel you were “lied to” or some spergy libertarian all-sides-are-bad-I’m-the-principled-one-in-the-middle faggotry. It’s a simple matter of life or death right now. Go ahead, choose.

    Just because you may disagree with my analysis doesn’t make me a retard. You need to lower your tone.

    As I’ve posted elsewhere on UR, the American people cannot make change via their electoral process. Apparently, The Saker hasn’t got the memo yet. See the 2014 Princeton University Study: Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens by Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page
    https://scholar.princeton.edu/sites/default/files/mgilens/files/gilens_and_page_2014_-testing_theories_of_american_politics.doc.pdf

    So its a bit counterproductive to even speak of a system which is in fact, an illusion, to keep the Americans believing & participating in a system that seeks to crush them – either as wage slaves or as debt slaves.

    “a genuine outsider like Bernie”

    Having read many of your comments here on UR – and been genuinely impressed with your knowledge base on armaments and military technology – I really thought you were way more intelligent than that. If you don’t know that Sanders is firmly a part of the Democratic establishment & even assuming he got elected as Prez on NOV 4, turning 79 years this year, could he really be discharging his duties as an 83 y.o. by the end of his 1st term? I think not.

    “because it got him another shot…”

    If you’ve mistaken Sanders for a genuine candidate – as opposed to running as a titular head to energize the Democrats’ Left base to whom he offers false hope – you’ve allowed yourself to be taken in by his ‘PR’.

    “But the real story is how the crooked DNC did him in again this year …”

    You speak of the DNC as if its a genuine alternative government. The US has one party – the business party – with two wings. Many, many pundits have described it thus.

    The DNC have neglected/ignored their white working class base and are as beholden to Wall St banksters & big Zio-donors as the Republicans are ‘owned’ by their big corporate donors & big Zio-donors.

    “He’s better than Biden and Trump by a country mile…”

    That’s an assertion. I suspect you’re making that assertion as you’re a believer of/supporter of Socialism/Communism – and have been drinking his socialist Kool Aid. All I’ll say on that score is to approach any issue/problem from an ideological perspective is absolutely the worst way of approaching it, as the solution is (usually) made to ‘fit’ the problem.

    “So enjoy Uncle Joe as next president.”

    As I’ve outlined elsewhere on this thread, my belief is that Trump as the ‘law and order’ candidate will come out of COVID & BLM riots & protests – electorally stronger – and if the US economic data shows its roaring back to life – he’ll be easily re-elected for a second term.

    Biden … “a retard POTUS for a nation of retards …”

    Cannot agree more. I’m genuinely astonished at how little Americans know about their own country, much less, the rest of the world.

    Its also useful to remember that Prez candidates from time to time have been selected so there’s no alternative to the Deep State’s plans for the country. One such occasion was the selection of Republican businessman Wendell Willkie – who ran against the incumbent President Roosevelt in the 1940 US Presidential Election – so the voting public did not have the choice for a non-interventionist candidate to FDR.

    Without being too cynical about it, I suspect Biden has been selected so there’s no real alternative to Trump – and that will be revealed for all to see during the Debates.

    So much for American democracy!

    The US enacted the fascist coup in Ukraine to:
    – block Sud Stream, Russia’s gas & oil pipeline to southern EU states e.g., Italy;
    – grab the Crimean peninsula which would’ve have yielded them control of the Black Sea, and

    Hello Patagonia Man: We both reach the same destination just by maybe a little different route. We know that from at least the French Revolution and then in the revolts of 1848 that the Jews were the driving force. Some scholars such as Prof. Michael Jones claim them to be the original radicals, having not only rejected the Gospel of Christ but crucifying him. The Rothschilds were buying land in Palestine in the mid 1800’s and one newspaper account reports they purchased the city of Jerusalem. The Ottoman Turks would not sell them enough however so they abandoned that tactic. The absolute requirement for control of Palestine was made official at the Jews 1897 Zionist Convention when Hertzel’s alternative was torn from the podium.

    I believe the 12 regional central bank districts were just white elephants to fool the goyim into thinking it was a regional system of member banks rather than a private cartel of the fiat money power run out of New York City. Paul Warburg (Rothschild) had warned their Senate operative Nelson Aldrich (maternal g. father of Nelson Rockefeller) to keep his name off the bill. Failing at first the cartel initiated fake opposition in the papers and then the public was finally fooled.

    The Zionist bridge head in Palestine is in the world’s most strategic position. Regardless, without the constant aid and military backing of Jewmerica nothing would save them. They are a propped up paper tiger like their USSR was and required constant agricultural, financial and industrial infusions just to keep from falling apart. I have mentioned the Yinnon Plan many times. This is the balkanization and destruction of the Arab Countries for “democracy” and Greater Israel as you explain. Look at Miles Mathis and others probe into nuclear weapons. I think they are mostly a psycological tool. If we abandoned the parasitic Jews the Arabs would take care of the rest.

    The foremost British Journalist of WW2, Douglas Reed in his book “The Controversy of Zion” although written in the 40’s or 50’s and not published until the 70’s is still one of the best. He lays bare the psychology of the “chosen” and says that the goal is the destruction of all the nations to be replaced by the global Jew Tyranny.

    China’s communist regime was installed and nurtured by Jewmerica’s Zionists. Ck out James Perloff on this. They are in cooperation with Jewmerica and are the NWO model with their lead in social credit and survelleince systems. The oligarchs of Russia are the same. I believe they will both be used jointly to engineer a war with Jewmerica that will be resolved into the final establishment of the global totalitarian state.

  189. @steinbergfeldwitzcohen

    I guess he is one of those mad, clueless “evangelical Zionists” who drools with delight as the Infernal Demonic Forces massacre Christian children and burn churches in Palestine while he waits for the Rapture. I’ve ripped him apart a few times.

    But this has nothing to do with that infernal madness. I think on this occasion, on a subject unrelated to the Jewish genocide plan, he talked sense.

  190. @Zarathustra

    The Zioinist Jews have often sacrificed their own people for the Zionist Jew agenda. When Germany was forced to implement the Havara Agreement to get more Askenazi’s into Palestine, they left the most vulnerable and picked the young and fit as much as possible. And of course their predatory financial scams and subterfuges have caused lots of retribution against them in mass over the centuries isn the top dogs reaped the benefit.

  191. @hu_anon

    No: Mackinder was reffering to the strategic bridgehead of Palestine situated as a crossroads from Asia, Europe and Africa. The Zionist intend to control all resources, energy and pipelines going through the Middle East and Afghanistan also into Europe from Russia from this position. The Ukraine is important for Russia as an agricultural region primarily and of course it has the strategic Crimea, Russia’s port on the Black Sea. It is very peripheral however from a global standpoint.

    I’m genuinely astonished at how little Americans know about their own country, much less, the rest of the world.

    Here’s how it works:
    * Americans are in competition with each other for places in institutions (corporations, government, academe, etc)
    * The workings of these institutions is closely held by management. There is no appeal to decisions that, ordinarily, the American does not even know have been made.
    * One rule management follows is that anybody who tries to learn about the workings of institutions, any institution, and discuss this with anybody else (except in terms of commonplaces) has, ipso facto, just lost his/her chance of promotion.
    * Accordingly, nobody knows much about the rest of the world. The rule “If you move, you’ll get hit” is the only one survivors need or can have. If they don’t have it and follow it, they are not survivors.

    de Tocqueville commented that there was less true freedom of mind in America than any other country in the world (that he had experience with, so W. European countries only). The American followed common opinion, and did not wish to discuss it. That was an early version of the present system, one that relied on actual public opinion instead of the artificial public opinion presented by the media and corporate environments.

    Obviously, this leaves room for closely coupled ideological and religious groups, or coalitions of these groups, to move public opinion. Almost by definition, such groups are not closely coupled to reality (e.g. the reference to a “summer of love” in the recent Autonomous Zones). There is no obvious answer to the problems of (a) hijacking public opinion and (b) little independence of mind. For example, de Tocqueville’s observation would have us re-instituting aristocratic government (with hereditary aristocracies) and fixed, non-competitive roles in society so that independence of mind would be promoted. That is not an attractive proposal. Forced free thought? Contradiction in terms, generally means “indoctrination”. What to do, what to do?

    In the meantime, remember the 1920’s advertising aphorism: “I could sell tuberculosis to everybody in the United States, but only once.” That’s behind the failure (thus far) of TDS, and the aphorism is about all we have left to prevent a world wide descent into regional warfare.

Putin recently cut a conference on local Russian autonomy short when a poll showed almost 50% of Siberians wanted to join the US in some capacity. The total population involved is about 70MM, well within US ability to absorb. There’re about 70K libertarian homes in these areas, quiet-like, most community leaders. They also want to bring in small Islands and the PI into a US confederacy, and closer OAS/PIF ties.

    A poll they’ve done show world and US libertarians having more kids than conservatives and progressives.

    This explains the ongoing media hysteria on libertarians. and the far-left pre-occupation on White Supremacy and limiting children you can have if White/High IQ.

    Yes: Jewmerica is a the main satellite in the Zionist network. The productivity of the goyim is syphoned off for building Greater Israel and our eventual global submersion in the NWO. We have just now experienced another installment of this criminal program with the theft by the global bankers of another 6 trillion under the fake virus fraud. As was also done in the 08 “bailouts” for the super rich. Jewmerica has to gradually be reduced to 3d world status so it will merge more comfortably with Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.

    US has large population compered to other countries except India and China.
    So US have distributed the workload among more people than other countries.
    The automatic result was that there was (and is ) higher specialization in active life of the country.
    Also management in every sector did see the economic benefit of specialization.
    The negative result in narrow specialization is that narrow specialized brains have narrow views.

    Bernie is far from the ideal candidate, but he has come closest to making a policy turn in the direction of realism that is badly needed…

    For instance on the issue of tackling wealth inequality…I don’t know if you alt-right retards commenting on this website are all members of the 0.01 percent, but just based on numerical probability I would guess not…

    The fact is that there is something very very wrong when a small, even tiny, group of financial parasites get to suck out the productive wealth of an entire people of 300 million…

    That includes also people who have worked very hard to achieve the very top of their profession in serious and vital professions like science and medicine…

    And yet scammers and bottom feeders in the so-called finance ‘industry’ run massive Ponzi schemes that EVERYONE pays for…like a head tax on all of us…

    This is no secret to even a minimally thinking person…

    This kind of scamming activity accounts for the vast majority of the wealth of the tiny elite…and this financial scamming activity is now in the trillions of dollars and has basically RUINED the fundamentals of a productive economy…

    This massive scamming has also buried the chances of the country ever providing a decent place to live and become educated and productive for our children and grandchildren…

    No sane person of whatever political stripe would argue against this…

    “You say he wields a lot of power and ordered the killing of Soleimani…

    I was rather on the fence about that one…did he really…?

    Is it impossible that someone pulled the trigger on that Hellfire at Baghdad airport…?

    What could anybody do…is he now going to make public the fact that people nominally under his command are casually treating the president like he’s not even there…how does that make him seem even remotely in charge…?”

    Well AFAIK Trump publicly took credit for it and the Pentagon officially confirmed that it conducted the strike on Trump’s orders.

    https://www.politico.com/news/2020/01/02/soleimani-trump-iran-iraq-093102

    And the assassination of Gen. Soleimani was also the impetus for S.J. Res. 68, the Iran war powers resolution that Trump vetoed in May.

    Moreover it would certainly fit right into the pattern of escalating provocations against Iran that Trump has been methodically doing since being inaugurated, e.g. repudiating the JCPOA agreement, declaring IRGC a “terrorist” organization, piling on more sanctions, threats, violations of Iranian airspace, etc.

    Taken together, I have to conclude that Trump has been trying hard to provoke Iran into taking some kind of significant overt action which he could use as a pretext for war.

    “What about the bombing of Syrian troops right after the Kerry-Lavrov agreement…which was on Obama’s watch…?

    The Russians publicly questioned WHO WAS IN CHARGE…?”

    I assume you’re referring to Obama’s attack on Syrian troops at Deir Ezzor in Sept. 2016. I’ve mentioned this attack several times in other comments here as I believe it was done in an attempt to scare some Sanders supporters into Trump’s camp – by giving the voters a taste of the dangers we would face under the confrontational foreign policy of a Clinton administration.

    “And what about Trump’s repeated attempts to get out of Syria…only to be overruled each time…?”

    I don’t think he was ever sincere about it; it was all just posturing, IMO. He’s shown that he has no problem with imperialism in general (look what he’s doing in South America), and it seems he’s gone out of his way to sabotage any and every chance to improve relations with any country. Many doors were open when he was elected and he’s slammed them all shut.

    “What about the ‘anonymous’ oped from the ‘steady state’ admitting that they do what they want anyway…?”

    As I see it, it’s clearly in the interest of the “deep state” to make “us” believe that Trump was sincere as a candidate, only to find later on to his dismay that he’s “powerless” to do anything but go along with and even take serious further risks in pursuit of the agenda. Trump’s powerless, the office of president is powerless, and the voters are powerless, so we should just give up on the fantasy of saving our country and just stay home and go with the program…that’s the message.

    Yet AFAIK Trump has not once used the power of the presidential bully pulpit to appeal to “the people” (especially his supporters) to rally behind disengagement in Afghanistan, Syria, Korea, etc. Instead he uses it to make threats. So if he’s “powerless” it’s by his own choice, IMO.

    Well…not to put too fine a point on it, but I think your rebuttals are not persuasive…

    I think, bottom line, we would be fooling ourselves if we were to believe that the president is very powerful and that he can actually do meaningful things…like get out of Syria…

    Or that there are not more powerful forces at play that actually prevent any given president from doing much of anything…

    I don’t want to beat this thing to death because I do agree with you up to a point that Trump has been an abysmal failure…not having delivered on anything he said he stood for…

    But I also don’t agree that Trump was insincere about wanting to get out of Syria…I think it’s pretty clear that he tried…on several occasions…on the first one, his Defense chief resigned in protest, Mattis…

    The so-called Syria envoy, James Jeffrey, an apparatchik not elected by anybody, has blatantly contradicted Trump on Syria policy on many occasions…and any serious analysis of the stops and starts of Trump’s repeated thrusts at Syria withdrawal would conclude that Jeffrey has prevailed, bit-time…

    How can an unelected bureaucrat prevail over the POTUS on fundamental issues of foreign policy…?

    It was only the Turks moving militarily into northern Syria that finally prompted the US military to leave…not any doing of Trump’s…of course this withdrawal was very partial, not the full withdrawal that Trump had actually announced…

    I don’t recall a president ever getting so publicly slapped down on a matter that is the commander in chief’s sole discretion…

    And about the similar 2016 insubordination to Obama with the Deir Ezzor bombing incident…you say that was to get Bernie supporters to vote for Trump…?

    Come on man…that’s quite a stretch, don’t you think…where is poor Occam in this pretzel logic…?

    No…it is much simpler to conclude that the neocon nuts who are REALLY in charge [both during Obama and Trump] simply have decided to push their way through, regardless of what a mere POTUS says or does…

    When you add in the incredible admission in that ‘anonymous’ oped in the NYT where the ‘steady state’ claims to be ‘correcting’ Trump’s poor judgement…well, it seems we get a fairly clear idea of who is really in charge…or at least who is not…

    Stepping back for a moment it would seem that the rule about a maximum of eight years in the oval office is designed expressly for bringing about this state of affairs…where no single man is given the chance to truly consolidate power and bring about real change…

    Eight years is nothing…the ‘steady state’ can certainly wait that out and prevent any real deviation from their desired course by simple obstructionism, as that oped spelled out…by the time the next ‘election’ circus rolls around they will have another malleable person up for the job and he will also be rotated out before any change can happen…

As Hillary stated at one of her talks at the CFR. “its good that the CFR has put an office here in Washington, so now we don’t have to go very far to find out what we need to do.” The Windell Wilkie example is the way all of the presidential circuses are. How in a real election process not controlled by the Jew MSM whores could a degenerate adolescent playboy phony like Trump nor the senile Zionist nepotist crook like Biden be top contenders. Or the desiccated and obviously debilitated Hillary. The only qualification any of them have is they are stooges for the Jews.

    Put aside your Libertarian fantasies. Instead imagine that you are driving down the hi-way and on your left is a long expanse of barb wire fencing with a bunch of cattle grazing as hard as they can on whatever grass and stubble they can get. On the other side of the road it is the same thing just owned by a different rancher. Now as far as the cattle are concerned it probably doesn’t make any difference which side of the road they are on.

    This is the way the countries really are. They are big farms and the goyim are the cattle. The owners (Zionist elite) don’t want the cattle getting out and running around loose. The main concern of the owners is to keep the cattle under control, no matter what farm they are in. All the cattle must be tagged and vaccinated and penned where they can be herded up whenever necessary.

    To achieve a more cost effective and efficient system the owners association has developed the U.N. Sustainable Development Initiative (Agenda 2030-21) so that the goyim can be better managed.

    In free societies individuals would join together and use self determination to make choices for their greatest good. This rarely happens in the real world where money power and territory are concerned. The sodomite and murderer Lincoln is a good example of this and has been used as justification for the Chinese communist claims on Tiwan by stating Lincoln did not let the South go. Just one of many examples but government will never limit itself and if people are going to be free then as Samuel Adams said they must be willing to fight for their liberties.

    In addition to the corruption via bribery/blackmail of the independents in the electoral process, what I’d like you to consider is the Anglo-Zionists were clandestinely funding and arming the Confederacy to try to break up the United States – and hence the tragic death toll from the Civil War.

    Remember Rothschild’s warning?

    The A-Z’s precipitated the British-American Wars 1810-12, a treaty not being signed til 1814.

    And pretty much fashioned the country of Canada out of French Canada, the landholding od the Hudson Bay Co. and British Columbia to prevent a cordial US-Russia trading relationship – and the two of them being linked by a Siberian-Trans North American railway.

    There’s even good evidence to suggest that Lincoln’s assassination was planned from Montreal, by the A-Z’s.

    Come on man…that’s quite a stretch, don’t you think…where is poor Occam in this pretzel logic…?”

    But Occam cuts both ways. It’s really not much of a stretch all when you look at the bigger picture. First, if it was not a political act, then what exactly was the point? What was the point of lame duck Obama with only a few months left in his term attacking Syrian troops and greatly escalating tensions with Russia? It made no sense.

    Second, in the aftermath of the attack, there was a flurry of editorials by both Russian and U.S. pundits warning of war with Russia, e.g.:

    https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2016/10/01/will-we-exist-tomorrow/

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/video-the-third-world-war-has-never-been-so-close-us-preparing-to-wage-war-on-russia-how-will-russia-respond/5546914

    Look at what Dugin is saying in the video; he’s basically saying either elect Trump or it’ll be war.

    And here’s PCR saying: “A vote for Hillary could be a vote for nuclear war and the end of life on earth.”

    https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2016/10/18/does-hillary-have-the-temperment-to-have-her-finger-on-the-nuclear-button/

    Moreover, as I recall, Alex Jones, Steven Ben-Nun (Israeli News Live) and various other pundits were uploading nuclear fallout maps.

    Finally there’s this:

    “According to the analysis of the 2016 Cooperative Congressional Election Survey, fewer than 80 percent of those who voted for Sanders, an independent, in the Democratic primary did the same for Clinton when she faced off against Trump a few months later. What’s more, 12 percent of those who backed Sanders actually cast a vote for Trump.

    The impact of those votes was significant. In each of the three states that ultimately swung the election for Trump—Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania—Trump’s margin of victory over Clinton was smaller than the number of Sanders voters who gave him their vote.”

    Sanders -> Trump voters…
    WI: 51k
    MI: 47k
    PA: 116k

    Trump win margin…
    WI: 22k
    MI: 10k
    PA: 44k

    https://www.newsweek.com/bernie-sanders-trump-2016-election-654320

    So if it wasn’t for about 12% of the Sanders supporters who voted for Trump, Clinton would’ve got in. So why would some Sanders supporters vote for Trump rather than Clinton or Jill Stein? I believe it’s because they were concerned that if Clinton was elected she’d start a war with Russia and Trump wouldn’t.

    Of course I could be wrong about all of this, but it’s the only theory that makes sense IMO.

    Again with the “retards”? And as far as the “Alt-Right” slur, that’s just laughable!

    There are very, very few here on UR who regularly point out:
    – the utter corruption of the US electoral process;
    – that the US has departed from democracy (if it ever had it, the US Constitution was drawn up by property-holders & set up to protect property, primarily); and
    – I personally would argue (with few exceptions) that the US has been in a military dictatorship (by the M-I-C) – at least since the coup d’etat of the Kennedy Administration – while the illusion of democracy has been maintained.

    (On that last point, nothing proved that to me more than TBTF bank bailout. Obama had been paid big $$$ by Wall St for giving speeches – and he was always going to do Wall St’s bidding – in spite of the fact that the Capitol was receiving up to ~24,000 phonecalls/emails/texts per day from Americans pleading with ‘their’ government not to bail out the banks!

    Just so you know the 2008/09 GFC was the greatest bank heist in world history– with an estimated $20 trillion, that’s $20,000,000,000,000 being ‘lost’ by companies, life pension funds, local & state governments, and private investors all around the world. (The US’s total GDP in one year is ~$17trillion for comparison).

    Look, all I’m saying, Sanders is not a genuine contender. But for some reason you think
    i) he’s genuine; and
    ii) he’s actually got a real chance at being elected; and
    iii) you’ve expressed disappointment yourself at him rolling over for Killary in 2016. Have you not heard the saying:

    “Once bitten, twice shy”?

    In 2016, I too, had hoped that the American people were going to be, at least, offered a choice in policy terms from the duopoly and was aghast at how easily Sanders rolled over. But when he did, I knew he was never the ‘real deal’. He was only there to excite the Bernie Bro’s – and after they get excited – and he drops out – where are they gonna go? Some of these kids would ‘die on a hill’ for Sanders – not being able to see how cynically they’re being manipulated.

    In my books, its cruel to offer people false hope. Obama did the same, if you recall, with his ‘Hope’ and ‘Change’ mantra!

    The rest of your comment is after the fact. Sanders can say whatever he likes to ‘rattle the cage’ of the Leftists in the US, knowing full well he’s not genuine and that he’s merely playing a role.

    They may not personally “make the policy” but they are essential to implementing it. Without political front men who are willing to give the orders and take personal responsibility for the crimes, the “deep state” wouldn’t accomplish very much.

    And as I see it, Trump is the most despicable of all. He had to steal votes e.g. from anti-war voters, to win the election. Clinton – as evil as she is – ran a far more honest campaign than the MAGA con man.

It owes itself entirely the Jewish takeover of our institutions and the Jewish attempt to ensure that white countries never have governments that actually represent the majority of the population. Thus we have the absurd situation today in which, in many white countries, white people vote in governments that hate them and seek to replace them with people who have no connection to or empathy with the countries to which they have emigrated.

    “Good, now tell me about this exotic virus you have discovered,” enquired Vladhere.
    Sergi rested the violin and looked upwards, “well now, it was me in my kitchen with WD40, a white turnip maliu float and a pair of black-market red pliers that done it. What a triumph! I have more details … but I can fix it in an instant if that is what you want. All I need is one of Hillary’s fingernails.”
    “No, no! We don’t want the antidote we want to use the virus. Our plan is to give it to Doctor Fauchi, our Chinese Agent, for distribution. The virus will only strike those whose wealth is excessive and thus we will bring down the real power of the West, the neo-liberals, the billionaire 1 %.”

    So the Russians made their plans in conjunction with the Chinese. The virus would only strike down those whose wealth was excessive. Doctor Fauchi agreed but we were not to know Fauchi was a little dyslexic, as the Chinese often are, and he confused ‘wealth’ with ‘health’. This can easily happen also with the medical profession. Ah … well maybe next time.
    However … there were consequences which would cause cities to be shut down, people to stay apart or even home and make them all wear masks, and mail in voting to be used for elections. Even the church became involved where it learnt a new and therapeutically correct language. Sins become diseases and infections, the Eucharist became the equivalent of rescuing antibodies, and Jesus Christ became the great vaccine.
    Would all this spell the final nail in the coffin for the ‘West’?
    ——————————-

    Back in the small studio in Hollywood Sergi explained to Vladhere, “So the frustration regarding the masks and lockdown on the youth has grown to critical proportions.”
    “Good grief,” exclaimed Vladhere. “What now?”
    Sergi smiled and continued,” a reason for breaking the restrictions has arisen and things are really changing, things that may greatly assist our plans!”
    “Well listen to this secretly recorded conversation between two university professors from Evergreen State College.” Sergi flicked open his android and hit the play button.
    ——————————

    “What is the difference between postmodern discrimination and Marxist discrimination,” asked Professor George Bridges to Professor Maxie as they were fitting a new kitchen for Maxie’s significant other named Barrie.
    “Well,” said Professor Maxie as he paused and waved a floral handkerchief to wipe some damp from his forehead before installing the sink plug, “it is largely a matter of feeling the difference or the sensation of being aware of the difference just as I can feel the difference between a warm Moet champagne or a cold Moet champagne after I taste it. Hopefully that will happen shortly.”
    “You mean postmodern black lives matter is like warm Moet champagne?” asked Professor George Bridges slowly shaking his head in confusion.
    “In more ways than one,” replied Professor Maxie as he repositioned the plug. “You see the taste of warm Moet champagne makes me feel pain whereas with cold Moet champagne my spirits rise. This might not be the same for a Marxist as opposed to a postmodern Moet champagne taster. The Marxist Moet champagne taster will have an objective set of standards or a thermometer he uses to judge the temperature whereas the postmodern taster just feels the sensation which may differ depending on the circumstances.”
    “You mean if he is in an igloo?”
    “Exactly!”
    “Well it is mighty hot here so to drink a cold Moet later would be just perfect.”
    “Not according to the postmodernist. Later is not an option.”
    “Why?”
    “The circumstances might change depending which tavern we use. That LGBT disco where all the attendants wear sexy clothing is very different to our local where the barmen wear only jockstraps.”
    “So even if the Moet is the same it might feel different,” asked Professor Bridges beginning to get the drift.
    “Right, everything depends on time, place, air conditioning, phases of the moon, whether the tide is in or out, what the attendants are wearing, etc.”
    “So what they are wearing can affect postmodern BLM.”
    “I see you are getting the drift,” replied Professor Maxie as he adjusted his single pearl earring.
    “Maybe that is why Harry teamed up with Daryl. He was a very sexy black attendant you know. This postmodern BLM seems to have its advantages just like finishing this dammed kitchen will.”
    —————————-

    Meanwhile later that month back in the small studio in Hollywood Sergi explained to confused Vladhere, “Our failed plans are suddenly working thanks to American ‘wokeness’. The virus has again taken hold and the country is crumbling. Dr Fauchi is over the moon.”
    “You mean riots, fighting in the streets?”
    “Not quite. It will depend on this other virus, the ‘wokeness’ virus.”
    Sergi placed a copy of the ‘Mongolian Herald’ on the table and spread it to the ‘in the stars’ section by ‘Cowdisley Shovel’. “Just look here and read this.”
    Vladhere bent down and began to read:
    ‘It is really difficult to lock away satire regarding the vices and follies of manufactured regimes and their rulers. The healthy society can be easily recognized by how much the population adores the comedians and satirists among them whether they employ a linguistic wit or a bumptious parody: the last being the most dangerous to any practitioner in a ‘sensitive’ regime.
    ‘Just to remind everyone of the greatest antidote to economic, political and social control is humor.
    ‘We all know that the Russians admire their comedians and from my experience the Chinese are not averse to joking about their rulers, particularly the local ones, it all forms part of their ancient culture. From the 60’s to the late 90’s the British led the English speaking world in political and social satire. Presently the Western world has few practitioners. Bear in mind they don’t have to satire anything but the social norms and that always punishes the elite.
    ‘Also just ask why some of the best jokes uncounted come from the ranks of common soldiers. Then ask why when such folk unite they form a much more formidable force than any army of sycophants or puppets. How would Blackadder die in action as opposed to Donald Trump or Bill Clinton is the real question.
    “As a bellwether indication to international relationships it is revealing to see how much both parties appreciate the back and forth comments containing satire. In this I see Trump is struggling whereas Biden misses it altogether.
    “Here is the bottom line. Where profit or money is involved America has no humor and I predict such will be their downfall, their Waterloo. Everyone knows those quotes from the ‘Merchant of Venice’.
    “Ask yourself is there any humor in the hospitals regarding Covid 19 among the carers? If and when there is we will know that we are on the way to its defeat.”
    Vladhere straightened and looked at Sergi, “How does this help us with ‘wokeness’?”
    Sergi smiled and opened his hands as if cupping a truth. “Wokeness is the virus that destroys humor. There is no fun, laughter or satire in wokeness. Wokeness combined with the two geriatric leaders of the ‘free world’ and their geriatric supporters will allow for an explosion of humor in China and Russia. Wokeness, religious fundamentalism and political dysfunction become the internal virus’ you cannot fight with guns or sanctions. We need only to wait for it to spread.”
    Vladhere lent back smiled and said, “Bring on the clowns! ‘Just remember, if the world didn’t suck, we’d all fall off.’ ‘Life is like eating artichokes, you have got to go through so much to get so little.’ ‘All my life, I always wanted to be somebody. Now I see that I should have been more specific.’ Or from Shakespeare: ‘Better a witty fool than a foolish wit.’”
    “OK, I will have that vodka now and perhaps after that go to that Chinese restaurant on the corner.”

    Russia and China are products of the Zionist crime syndicate. They served their immediate purposes in the move for world hegemony and lined lots of elite pockets along the way. Mostly all 3 entities have the same objectives and I believe will work together to achieve the destruction of all the nations and the establishment of a global totalitarian Zionist state as predicted by the leading WW2 Journalist Douglas Reed.

    There has to be war, hatred and conflict for the Zionists global criminals to make progress. They always fall back to the Hegelian dialectic expounded by Neo-Con professor (Trotskyite) Leo Strauss and of course need “opposing” forces to accomplish this.

    Trump was the anti-Establishment candidate that tapped in to a populist wave that among other things was concerned about jobs being off-shored and our continued military interventions. There was some nationalism and scape-goating of immigrants too.

    What has been underreported is the DNC’s strawman campaign. They wanted Trump to be the Republican nominee because they thought it would be an easy win. This explains a lot of the free media coverage Trump got.

    Nobody expected him to win but he tapped in to a populist groundswell.

    He was opposed by the Deep State and the liberal media right from the beginning of his presidency. They didn’t control him. And he wanted rapprochement with Russia and wanted to pull troops out. That was a no go w the Establishment and they have engaged in a relentless campaign against him.

    He has also proved to be an incompetent narcissist. Firing Mueller played right in to the RussiaGate hysteria. Plus numerous other mishandled events. But one of the biggest signs is his inability to keep a cabinet around him.

    Trump does have a pro-Israel bias which is problematic. His daughter converted to marry Kushner, Sheldon Adelson is a major donor, and much of the Republican base he relies on for support are Evangelical Christians.

    At the time of elections it wouldn’t have been too far off to say you were choosing between a Clinton war with Russia vs a Trump war w Iran.

    Trump will always have his base, a solid 35% or so. The question is can he pull enough swing voters. I don’t think rational people blame him for the current economic problems but they do blame him for his poor leadership on the pandemic and being tone deaf on the Black Lives Matter and protests.

    The alternative is Dementia Joe. A perceived return to normalcy and calm after the chaos of Trump. But the guy has cognitive impairment and it is not sure who his leadership team will be. Of paramount importance is his choice of VP.

    A sad choice for the American people between these two extremely mediocre candidates.

    And the pandemic will likely cause a major economic crash in the next 12 months. Unfortunately things are going to get a lot worse regardless of who is president. May God help us all.

    My view is that the US wasn’t founded as a “democratic republic”. If it had been, wouldn’t there be some mention of the word ‘democracy’ somewhere in the US Constitution? Looking at the fact that there are public offices subject to elections and concluding that this fact identifies the republican form of government as a democracy is counterintuitive.

    Does Article IV direct that “The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government,” or that “The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a democratic republican form of government”?

    The answer is obvious.

  236. @Anonymous

    “Trump was the anti-Establishment candidate that tapped in to a populist wave…”

    Or so we’re continually told. But if he is actually anti-establishment, why is he trying to overthrow the Venezuelan government? Why doesn’t he demand a real investigation into 9/11? Why doesn’t he cooperate with Russia in Syria and stop supporting terrorists? Why doesn’t he quit the posturing and deliver on his promises to start bringing troops home? Why is he exiting treaties and starting another nuclear arms race?

    “Nobody expected him to win but he tapped in to a populist groundswell.”

    So why did lame duck Obama create a WW3 scare by attacking the Syrian army at Deir Ezzor just as the election was coming into the home stretch? And why didn’t Comey wait until after the election to notify congress about reopening the “investigation” into Clinton’s alleged email improprieties? And why didn’t Obama fire Comey for what was clearly a political act? Both of which would’ve apparently undermined Clinton’s electoral prospects?

    “He was opposed by the Deep State and the liberal media right from the beginning of his presidency. They didn’t control him. And he wanted rapprochement with Russia and wanted to pull troops out.”

    If he wanted “rapprochement with Russia” why did he begin his term by demanding that Russia give back Crimea, for example, something that everyone knew Russia could not do?

    “That was a no go w the Establishment and they have engaged in a relentless campaign against him.”

    Let’s see, he’s betrayed his supporters on many issues; his health is obviously deteriorating; as you point out he’s an “incompetent narcissist”; there’s a “relentless campaign against him” according to you; and polls show him trailing Biden in several key states; so why is he running for reelection? If LBJ can retire after one term why can’t Trump?

    The word democracy does not appear in. either the Constitution or its companion document the Declaration of Independence. This is because the founders considered a Democracy to be the worst form of government, always dissolving into destabilization and chaos. I recommend you read Madison’s remarks on this. The founders established a Republic of Sovereign States with very limited power deligated to the states agent the federal gov.

    Article IV section 4 only means that states must have a republican form of government, not a monarchy. Also note that the federal gov. was charged to defend the states from foreign invasion. The founders did not visualize that the sodomite and murderer Lincoln, agent of the New England manufactures and industrialists (many of them Jews) would launch a genocidal attack against the south in order to maintain the unconstitutional tariffs and damages the southern economy.

    You have brought out several valid points about the puppet actor and Zionist shill for the Jews, Donald Trump. He has always been controlled by the Jews. He was bailed out of his casino fiasco in the Latem 80’s by current Sec of commerce jew W. Ross former managing director of Rothschild Inc. for 25 years. I can’t see how anyone in Jewmerica can reach an accountable age and not see that the Presidential circus is just a show for the goyim while the Zionist elite hold the real power. The senile crook and self proclaimed Zionist Biden is the same thing. Obama (real father Frank Marshall Davis) (see dreams of my REAL father) is a product mainly of the Pritskers of Chicago, and the Bush criminals go back before WW1 to Samual Bush who was brought onto the Jew run War Industries Board (what a great racket that was) by Percy Rockefeller during the puppet actor and syphilitic W. Wilson’s catatonic lay about under Col. House (Rothschilds employee) and Bernard Baruch administration. The Zionists control both phony parties and just use the Jew run MSM to put on a show.

    My view is that the US wasn’t founded as a “democratic republic”

    Having read the Federalist and the Anti federalist papers on the issue, the Founders seem to have had in mind some sort of control mechanism beyond the Electoral College, property owners voting issues had already been established in the Colonies (ie., Virginia, Pennsylvania). Even attempting to keep the franchise limited to aristocrats, it was understood that restricting the “republic’s” power would be an important issue to the governed.

    I do admit to agreeing with the Anti federalist position that the whole thing was a big wank.

    A Pennsylvanian (they wrote anonymously, like the Federalists) noted that the whole thing would collapse. “First,” he said, “the States will lose their authority to the Federal center. Then, the individual will lose his freedom to the State.”

    What’s to disagree with there. Thing is, consolidation into a mass nation was going to happen anyway. The nineteenth century saw the spectacular (to Europeans) rise of the German petty kingdoms into a major nation, also the fractious Italian states unite the same way. South of us, the United States of Brazil went the same route.

    I suspect if you were to ask the average Italian, German, Brazilian or… any of us, “Are we better off being ruled by an Imperial Central State?” they might all long for the good old days before it happened. But something’s in the air that tells me it’s make or break time. For the first time in two centuries, regular folk may be able to rise and “alter or abolish” the mess. It will be dangerous, but that’s where opportunity waits.

    Politics is a source of money and the “power” to get goods and services that few others can get. Always has been, although the “responsibility” part to some extent reduces the worth of the rewards (“Sword of Damocles” story).

    There are always small groups that are trying to do something to get a political payoff, and they quite often don’t tell other people what they are doing. In fact, US politics is little more than that. Secret service and clandestine operations are very old. Oldest on record that I know of is the old Roman Empire’s “agentes in rebus”, first reference AD 319, “Those doing things in (public) affairs”. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agentes_in_rebus)

    Certainly the British attempts to bring the US into WW I are well documented, and there must have been similar attempts in WW II.

    However, I don’t know nearly enough about them. Recent events say that I should if I want to continue breathing. So — thanks for the reference, I’ll be looking at it very carefully. It is painfully obvious that the Deep State (or bureaucratic establishment or Status Quo) exists and is very influential.

    I actually spent some time in a semi-covert organization, and I can tell you one thing — the covert people have little effect under most circumstances. For an example, consider the limited effect of US Special Ops (and for that matter the whole of DoD) in Afghanistan and Iraq (see: Mark Moyer, _Oppose Any Foe_, Basic Books, 2017). It sounds impressive to have the ability to kill anybody as a targeted individual, but, in Moyer’s words, SOF even with excellent intelligence and a very high mission success rate, have had no strategic effect. Same can be said for covert ops in general. If it’s small enough to be covert, it’s too small to have a strategic effect. Historical example: the French Communist Underground in WW II. Same as the Yugoslavian underground in treachery and being armed. The Yugoslavian Communist underground took over Yugoslavia — because of the Red Army. The French Communist underground did not take over France, although they killed a lot of Frenchmen during and at the end of WW II.

    You see my point. Remember the story of the North Wind and the Sun (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_North_Wind_and_the_Sun). Let the North Wind represent raw force and the Sun represent income distribution. The North Wind is more spectacular, but the Sun wins. You could say that the idea is just applied Darwinian evolution.

    Right now, drivers on the Sun side are:
    a) Global population growth has made the cities politically dominant.
    b) Changes in engineering have made the cities economically noncompetitive to distributed systems even on a national /State scale.
    c) The cities have been supporting themselves with political income (largely welfare income, plus some patronage job income, most recently by cultivating a “homeless” population).
    d) There is not more political income to take — the rising death rate in the hinterlands establishes that.
    e) Cities have been trying to keep stable using non-monetary rewards, such as exempting their constituencies from criminal law (homosexuality all the way up to decriminalizing shoplifting and insurrection and statue destruction, with elimination of police next). This effort has failed; now city governments cannot govern.
    f) Cities and national governments have been attempting to guard political income by propaganda and covert means. These means produce effects that are too small to counter (a) through (e).
    g) Conclusion: Everything that could save the cities has been tried and has failed. Cities will be unable to get the income they need to support their infrastructure and their political stability. They will continue to exist, but will be without influence.

    and so it goes.

    The failure of the cities (which is worldwide) is actually too big to guess what happens next. The failure is a byproduct of the population explosion, and the population explosion will have no cities to which people with no jobs in the country can go to be fed. That will be destabilizing enough to make things chaotic — and unpredictable by me.

    The answer to this excellent question of the omission of the word ‘democracy’ in founding documents may be able to be found in Noam Chomsky’s (don’t shoot the messenger!) assessment, that as far as he is aware,

    “the United States is the only country in world history founded to be an empire”

    Given the 13 founding colonies were white-settlements established by the Britishers, the close association between the Puritans and rabbinical Judaism and that Oliver Cromwell repealed the 1290 Edict of Expulsion of jews around about the same time as white settlement, 1657 (and by 1694 England had a central bank) – the Anglo-Zionists saw the 13 colonies as a keystone in their maritime empire, aka thalassocracy.

    It’s also not insignificant that the founding documents the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution was negotiated by land holders their justification being unless one had a material stake in the nation, i.e., property, a citizen/resident should be excluded from casting a ballot.

    The concept of universal suffrage was a much later addition. IIRC, women in the US didn’t get the vote nationally til 1920 and black women not until the 1965 Voting Rights Act was passed – which is surprising, as other white-settler colonial jurisdictions around the world, notably New Zealand & 1 or 2 of the Australian colonies had granted women the vote as early as 1894 & 1895 respectively.

    I thought I had established my position on this site often enough for commenters to know that I no longer believe American democracy actually exists.

    1. I have cited the 2014 Princeton University study several times which demonstrated that American voters have no real chance of changing government policy via the electoral system, viz.,

    https://scholar.princeton.edu/sites/default/files/mgilens/files/gilens_and_page_2014_-testing_theories_of_american_politics.doc.pdf

    2. I have quoted author of 1984, George Orwell often enough:

    “A people that elect corrupt politicians, imposters, thieves and traitors are not victims, but accomplices.”

    3. I have outlined, not only the breakup of the US into several geopolitical units (and quite possibly, but hopefully not, another civil war) but the megaregions in which North America is heading, within say, the next 150 – 250 years.

    Just because I believe all of the above doesn’t mean I can’t observe and comment on the theater that passes for US politics. Needless to say, I won’t be voting in November.

    Yes, Mark. I know all of that. Democracy was called “the tyranny of the majority” and “king numbers” by that generation of statesmen. The line in Article 4 that I quoted means precisely what it said. Democracy wasn’t even considered as an option. It was the concept used in France to justify the radical overthrow of the monarchy, and wasn’t accepted by American statesmen as a legitimate way to “alter or abolish” government (as mentioned in the Declaration of Independence), not even such an abusive government as the revolutionary French considered the French monarchy.

    Interesting that you brought up the debates. Republicans ALWAYS get mugged by some leftist, troll “moderator.” The feeble RNC is never able to avoid this. Election after election it’s Charlie Brown and the football. And the moderator becomes a hostile interrogator, part of the debate. The Divine Plan. Immutable.

    The humiliation of courageous women like Anita Hill who confronted her abuser. You vote for the architects of endless war. You vote for the apartheid state in Israel. Biden supports those things. With Biden you are voting for wholesale surveillance by the government, including the abolition of due process and habeas corpus. You vote for austerity programs. You vote for the destruction of welfare. That was Biden. You vote for cuts to Social Security, which he has repeatedly called for cutting, along with Medicaid. You vote for NAFTA, you vote for “free trade” deals. If you vote for Biden, you are voting for a real decline in wages and the loss of hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs.
    With Biden you are also voting for the assault on public education and the transfer of federal funds to Christian “charter schools.” With Biden you are voting for more than a doubling of the prison population. With Biden you are voting for the militarized police and against the Green New Deal.
    You are also voting to limit a woman’s right to abortion and reproductive rights. You are voting for a segregated public school system. With Biden you are voting for punitive levels of student debt and the inability of people to free themselves of that debt through bankruptcy. A vote for Biden is a vote for deregulating banking and finance. Biden also supports for-profit insurance and pharmaceutical corporations.
    A vote for Biden is also a vote against the possibility of universal health care. You vote for Biden and you are supporting huge, wasteful and bloated defense budgets. Biden also supports unlimited oligarchic and corporate money to buy the elections.
    That’s what you’re voting for.
    A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for more of the same. The ruling elites would prefer Joe Biden, just like they preferred Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump is vulgar and an embarrassment. But the ruling elites also made it abundantly clear about their interests: Many of these people were quoted by name saying that if Bernie Sanders was the nominee — or even Elizabeth Warren — they would vote for Donald Trump.”

    I realize there is very little chance of changing the situation using the electoral process. Especially considering that the great mass of people are apathetic and unenlightened about any thing that requires more than superficial analysis. However the more of them that do figure out that the Presidency is just a staged event of puppet actors, then the more of them that will look at other possibilities. For example Ron Paul was in the House for many years and had an excellent voting record. The Zionists could not get him defeated. I realize he was not able to accomplish the necessary changes but with more like minded constitutionalists that may change.

    The big majority of the goyim just listen to the Jew MSM and 95% will never do anything as long as they get 1 meal (even vegan) per day. They estimate that only 3% of the colonial population did anything to overthrow the British. It only takes a few determined people. This is why the Zionists control the propaganda and have indoctrination centers (public schools). The prospects are not good but the alternative is even worse.

    Yeah, he sucked me in too, some years ago.

    There are no senators, governors, cabinet memebers, supreme court justices or presidents who are not compromised. There are very few representives who aren’t, and a rapidly declining number of state reps.

    The problem with engaging in “real action” is not the risk that anyone’s “impotence ” will be revealed. It’s that events can get out of hand. Roughly 100 years after the end of the immense slaughter of WWI you do understand that avoiding another such tragedy is important, don’t you?

    You can tell the Saker doesn’t live in America, since he believes Americans love war.

    Not sure your numbers add up.

    Four main war-mongering constituencies make up close to a majority of the electorate:

    1. Evangelikills, Pentecostals, and other self-appointed Elect of God: at least 30 million.

    2. War-loving audiences of Rush and Hannity: millions more.

    3. Hold-overs of the “Greatest Generation” who believe Russia is the new Nazis and it is their patriotic duty to fight them and the Chicoms.

    4. BFFs of Israel who believe it is a great friend and ally of Amurika and base for Democracy in the Middle East and therefore support endless wars.

    True, many are sick of war. But the traditional ’Murkan love of war persists in its election of one war-mongering president after another, from Clinton through Obama (not sure about the Orange Peacock). And, I believe, the Unexceptional Nation will one day give account before the world and God.

    Almost forgot one other large war-loving constituency:

    5. The True Believers, those who believe in the NWO, often wokesters and Hillary-lovers. Their idea of spreading peace, understanding, and inclusion is to bomb the daylights out of states like Iraq, Libya, Yemen, and Syria. Their latest peace initiative is to build a new military base in the oil-rich section of Syria confiscated by the Deep State.

    I did not realize he was an open border advocate. He has always been for reducing the size and scope of government and ending the biggest tool of the globalists, that being the central banking cartel. Rand has always been compromised and makes the usual pilgrimage to supplicate before the Jews and Greater Israel. He should be licking the toilets in Adelson’s casino.

    If we had a Constitutional Republic as intended, the national gov. would be so small and limited that all taxes would be very small. The founders did not permit a graduated tax (part of communist Jew Manifesto). Taxing the rich to give money the gov. is just reducing productivity. Many if not most of the billionaires you are referring to are using the power of the corrupt Zionist controlled government as the vehicle to obtain monopolies in order to reach their position.

    As Jefferson stated: Let us hear no more of confidence in men, but bind them down from mischief with the chains of the Constitution. When you get big government you always get big corruption. The Zionist criminal conspiracy has been at work for so long and is so powerful and extensive that the big majority of politicians and judges are in this gang. They wan’t to be on the winning side. You are right about the extent of the problem. This is made even more apparent by the goyims submission to the incredible fake virus scam used as a cover for the global banker theft of more trillions. It is so effective that this scam will continue to be deployed to condition the goys, reduce more to poverty, destroy businesses and destroy our liberties.

    I believe Ron Paul let his libertarian penchants get the best of him in regard to the border. Our founders were clear from the first Immigration Act shortly after the Ratification that it should be limited to white Europeans.

  279. You need to ask? None of the others ever did, nor will they ever.

    In 1815, Rothschild made his famous statement: “I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls the British money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.”

  281. Not that it matters as he won’t get elected, but …

    Superstar rapper Kanye West who announced his candidacy for POTUS on 4th of July is yet to develop a foreign policy platform, but his past lyrics, tweets and travels may reveal some of his views.

    In the synthesizer-heavy remix of his 2010 banger Power, West criticized the US military presence in Iraq and a possible US war with Iran.

    “Bring our troops back from Iraq, keep our troops out of Iran”, sang West in the song. He also makes an appeal to Muslims by using the Arabic-language religious greeting “salam alaikum”.

    “If it was a fake impeachment why is it bad that Trump was not held accountable?”

    Seriously?

    I described the impeachment proceedings against Trump as being “fake” – not because the charges of “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress” were unfounded (they obviously weren’t, as H. Res. 755 was not at all unreasonable as far as it went) but because: (1) Trump’s most grievous crimes against the U.S. constitution and the people of the U.S. were not included among the articles of impeachment; and (2) because of the senate’s unjustifiable rejection of witnesses.

    For example, Trump’s seizure of Russian diplomatic property was a flagrant violation of the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, to which the United States is a signatory. This is an indisputable open and shut case of Trump violating and undermining the constitution that he swore to “preserve, protect and defend.”

    Another example would be Trump’s war crimes in Syria, e.g. the attack on the Shayrat airbase in Syria in April 2017. With this war crime Trump murdered 14 or 15 people and took a chance at starting WW3. What could be a more impeachable offense than a brazen war crime that put the U.S. in jeopardy of WW3? And they ignored it?

    “Accountable for what?”

    LOL! See above.

  287. The GOP is going to sandbag Trump the way they sandbagged Nixon. His presidency ended when a delegation led by Barry Goldwater went to Dick and said, Watergate is killing the party. You gotta go. Nixon didn’t have many friends, just like Trump. Trump in fact delights in offending people who might be his friends. So what will Trump do when a delegation led by Lindsay or Chuck goes to the WH and says you gotta go. The polls says we’re going to take a bath. Will Trump agree? Maybe not.
    This all goes back to 2016. Jeb was supposed to be the nominee, but Trump hit a goldmine when he realized the white working class in the industrial states had been screwed by globalism. The Bushes and the Clintons are friends. With Jeb running against Hillary, the WH would be in the bag no matter who won. They’re both criminal families. Trump is an outsider, and not completely under control of the Deep State. If Biden wins, the Deep State will relax. They’ve got their dummy.

Saker is a simple minded fool that sees Ukrainian Nazis under his bed, and refuses to see just how much of a Nazi his hero Putin is.

    Give it up Saker. All you do is make a fool of yourself when you post these foolish diatribes.
