“Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun…I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people.” Donald Trump, President of the United States

The Democrats approached the impeachment with the same cockiness that they approach everything. They thought they’d stomp their feet and run around with their hair on fire, and eventually people would see the righteousness of their cause. But it didn’t go down like that. Instead, the Trump defense team opened a can of whoop ass on the lot of them leaving the Dems wondering what hit them. They seemed surprised that they couldn’t win a conviction based on vitriol, character assassination and slanted news coverage. And they were genuinely shocked when their doctored videos and fake evidence was exposed to the public as the fraud it was. This was supposed to be the final drubbing of Donald Trump, instead, it turned out to be a revealing window into the degraded soul of declining party. In the end, Trump walked away unscathed while the Dems were left licking their wounds. Hurrah for Trump!

Now Trump is more powerful than when he was in the White House. His following has grown, his reputation as a fighter has ballooned, and his Democratic opposition has been exposed as incompetent, vindictive and thoroughly corrupt. That’s about as close to a total victory as it gets in politics. Trump has effectively vanquished his enemies and made himself the most powerful politician in America. He’s a conservative Colossus, a Republican kingmaker who is now in a position to hand-pick the party’s leaders in the next election cycle and (perhaps) for many cycles to come. As Marjorie Taylor Greene so aptly put it: “Trump IS the Republican party. It’s his party now”.

Who would disagree?

So now comes the reckoning. Already the pressure is building on the backstabbers, dimwits and apostates like McConnell, Graham, Sasse, Romney and the wretched Liz Cheney. Already the exodus of NeverTrumpers has begun in earnest. Soon the trickle will turn to a torrent as the “old guard” toadies and quislings make their way for the exits never to darken the halls of Congress again. Good riddance.

Some readers might recall how Steve Bannon’s top priority in 2016 was to clean out the GOP stables and purge the globalist double-dealers whose only goal was to cling to power by pandering to the Big Money guys who have been selling America down the river for decades. Now they’ll all be shown the door. It’s hard to believe, but the Republican Party has become the party of working people while the Dems are caught in the iron-grip of Wall Street, Big Pharma, Big Tech, the teacher’s unions, China and Israel. The impeachment has helped people to see what’s really going on. The Democrats are not linked to the Establishment. They ARE the establishment, and by establishment, I mean Swamp; the unprincipled, self-serving, namby-pamby meat puppets whose sole goal in life is to accommodate their globalist-oligarch bosses. The Dems have made no effort to reach out to working class people and address their interests. And there’s a reason for this: It’s because they have nothing but contempt and disdain for working class people. But you probably knew that already.

And let’s not mince words, Trump won the election fair and square. He IS the President of the United States, no two-ways about it. Whatever residence he occupies, that is the White House, that is the seat of government. Nearly 100 million Americans do not accept the results of the fraudulent election. These people know what happened and they won’t be bullied or threatened into saying different. Trump won. End of story.

Volumes have been already been written about the Big Steal, so I won’t bore you with the details here. Needless to say, the cognitively-impaired cadaver presently in the White House did not get 12 million more votes than Obama (Biden got 81 million votes while Obama got 69 million), 7 million votes more than Trump (Trump got 74 million votes in 2020) and a whopping 16 million more votes that Hillary. (Clinton got 65 million in 2016) The idea is laughable. The most gaffe-prone, tedious, empty-suit politico of all-time, did not garner 12 million more votes than Barack Obama. That did NOT happen. Which is not to say that Trump won the election easily. No, not at all. He needed the Democrats to help him, which they did quite eagerly.

In their typical ‘circular firing squad’ manner, the Dems tipped the scales in Trump’s favor when they offered their tacit support to BLM and Antifa for rioting and burning down cities across the country. That’s the straw that broke the camel’s back and shoved Trump across the finish line. It’s also why Trump got 10 million more votes in 2020 than 2016, and why he increased his support among minorities across the board. Growing numbers of blacks and Hispanics understand that the charges of “racism” directed against Trump are a pathetic attempt to divert attention from the relentless class war the Dems are waging on working class people of all colors. Now take a look at this excerpt from an interview with pollster Robert Cahaly who explains what happened in the run-up to the election:

“What we’ve seen, is the blue-collar, Midwestern voters that were considered Democrats, for the last 20 something years who had been part of the Reagan democrat coalition, came back. They came back because they felt like there was a candidate who appealed more to regular working class Americans than any Republican ever had. I mean, let’s face it, Mitt Romney was the opposite of a Republican who appealed to working class Americans….

….there are people who are suburban, with upper-middle income, higher educated mothers, who just did not like Trump on a personal level. But, they saw this level of violence, and they saw all the chaos that ensued. And what we hear from them is: I don’t like Trump, but I can’t be for that. It’s almost like they’ve been looking for a reason to hold their nose and vote for Trump and they found it.

On voter motivation:

… Until about six months ago, there were a lot of people motivated to vote against Donald Trump. But then, in the wake of the tragedy of Mr Floyd being murdered, there were protests. And some of those protests turned into violence. That violence turned into a defund the police movement, and a Black Lives Matter movement that went beyond simply protecting black lives — there were calls for statues to be torn down. We got to the point a week before July 4th, where people were suggesting Mount Rushmore was offensive.

All of a sudden, Americans who weren’t even necessarily big fans of Donald Trump said ‘what is happening in my country?’ There became a genuine debate as to whether America’s foundation, its principles, its purpose was good or bad. People still believe in America. If you make that choice, where one side thinks that America has a history to apologize for, and isn’t a good force in the world and the other side feels like America is a good force in the world, and has a history to learn from…That’s not a good scenario for an American get elected President. I think Joe Biden on the wrong side of that.

On the riots:

The slump starts every time somebody shares a video of somebody else. So when a Molotov cocktail is thrown in the street of a town, or people see messages about defunding police, or people talking about killing policemen and how that would be fair — that’s the stuff that also motivates people to vote against. And that stuff is not happening in a vacuum. It took Biden’s campaign a month to actually admit they were against the violence that they saw…. the fact that Biden did a reverse course and sort of criticized the violence after months of embracing it, or suggesting it doesn’t exist, tells me he knows it’s real.” (“Robert Cahaly: how we got the polls right“, Unherd)

Isn’t that a great analysis of what took place before the election? Trump’s stature as a candidate gradually grew–not because he was the best president ever or because everyone loved him– but because the country was under siege by anarchist throng that were wreaking havoc and destruction everywhere they went. For a while it seemed like our traditional way of life, our system of laws, and, yes, our very civilization, was about to collapse in a heap. And the one thin-reed the American people could cling to, was Donald J. Trump, the last line of defense against the Marxist mob that was burning and looting everything in its path.

This is what happened. And this is why people like me–who never voted for a Republican in my life– voted for Trump. It’s because the Democrats forced them to do so by tacitly green-lighting the violent and destructive activities of maniacal leftists run amok.

This bitter experience of the last few months has caused many of us to reassess our political loyalties. It’s also helped us to wash the mud from our eyes and admit to what we actually see. And, what we see is that there’s no place in the Democratic party for working people. None. Ask yourself these few questions:

Who supports the trade laws that off-shore our businesses and outsource our jobs?

The Democrats.

Who sends our sons and daughters off to wars so that Wall Street and globalist oligarchs can seize more of the world’s vanishing resources?

The Democrats.

Who is leading the charge on Internet censorship, basically banning anyone who holds a contrary view on Covid (than the MSM) or anyone challenging the election results?

The Democrats.

Whose governors have shut down their states and pushed the country into the worst recession in modern times, throwing millions out of work, closing the schools and churches, increasing the incidents of drug abuse, child abuse, alcohol abuse, homicide, mental illness, depression, poverty and blanket immiseration the people in their charge?

The Democrats.

The Democrats have made it perfectly clear that they despise Americans who work for a living, who go to church on Sunday, who own guns, and who put out the flag on the 4th of July. They despise us. They call us “deplorables” because we scrimp to get by from paycheck to paycheck, and because we pay our bills on time and because we try to raise our kids with real values. We are not “enlightened” like our Democrat friends who cry “equity” as they tear down statues of our founders and war heroes. We don’t think that wearing a mask is a sign of moral superiority. We don’t think that slashing funding for police departments will improve security for ordinary people, shopkeepers or the elderly. We don’t seek to erase our borders in order to abandon our sovereignty so that we can be subsumed into their globalist “reset” plan in which the biggest “stakeholders” (the global monopolies and multi-nationals) will control all the levers of state power. We don’t want any of that, which is why we are glad that Trump defeated the Democrats once again, giving us hope that the Republic will eventually be restored and we can get back to business.

So, this should be a happy day, a day for celebration. The Democrats have overplayed their hand and come up Snake-eyes. They lost in stunning fashion which paves the way for more victories in the future. Sure, they’ll disparage us and call us “white supremacists” and “domestic terrorists” because we don’t share their enlightened “liberal” world view. But their hatred will only make us stronger. We know who we are. We are the Deplorables, we are the glue that holds this country together. We won’t be crushed, we won’t be exterminated, we won’t be silenced, and we won’t be told what to think by CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the propaganda networks. We see through their lies and we will hold-fast to what we believe. And what we believe is that the country is now in the hands of an imposter president who will not act in the interests of the American people, but will do the bidding of the powerful elites and foreign oligarchs who hold his puppet-strings. These are the people who want to destroy our country, depose our leaders, and impose their own dystopian New World Order on us. We can’t let that happen.

This second impeachment proves that these people can be beaten, because they were beaten. They lost and we won.

If that’s not reason to celebrate, I don’t know what is.

Hurrah for the Deplorables!

    The entertainment factor is now that the Dems have run out of kitchen sinks to throw at Trump, they’re actually going to have to look like they’re capable of running the country that they have so skillfully smashed politically, economically, spiritually, morally, and ethically. As the full horror becomes more clear in the coming months, Dems will completely own the disaster.

  2. Wyatt says:
    @jsinton

    Are you kidding? Have you seen the excuses and bullshit from twitter tards pretending like Biden is doing a good job? There’s a huge amount of regret as well, but because the Democrats cheated, it doesn’t matter. They got away with it and they’ll keep getting away with it until they need to implement true authoritarian measures and sink the whole country as a result.

    We’re doomed, but it’s going to be one hell of a ride.

  3. Richard B says:

    No matter how clear the horror becomes they’ll never own anything, at all, let alone completely.

    I think the best thing to come out of this is that there are a lot of people from all walks of life oppose they tyranny, or whatever one wants to call what the hostile elite are imposing, by force, on the West in general and the USA in particular.

    Human beings in the last 200+ years have had enough of a taste of freedom to know that they prefer it to tyranny.

    But things have broken down so badly that it’s obvious, at least to some, that sanity will not be restored by returning to more of the same, ie; waving flags and prating about God, family values, and the 1st and 2nd amendments.

    Those things can all still be valued and should be. But not as abstractions. That’s what the Left is supposed to do. One can’t return to the very approach that made it so easy for the hostile elite, as well as their useful idiots and paid proxies, to take complete control of the culture and country in the first place.

    The historical, intellectual and moral foundations of the Enlightenment are bankrupt. They no longer make sense and they no longer work. Just look around.

    If we don’t update the culture we’re not going to make it. It’s as simple as that.

    And I’m not talking about intellectual fashions and trends. I’m talking about culture as a means of biological adaptation. Because adaptation, whether of us to the world or the world to us, is of vital importance to all human beings, let alone those living in a world more complex and unpredictable than ever before.

  4. Richard B says:
    @Wyatt

    They got away with it and they’ll keep getting away with it until they need to implement true authoritarian measures and sink the whole country as a result.

    That’s right. Authoritarian measures will sink the country. Guaranteed.

    Not because I say so. Hardly. But because any attempt to impose a social order that is free of control and sustained by force will only increase the uncontrolled exercise of naked power.

    And it’s exactly that force, constantly applied, that destablizes the very social institutions the elite’s power controls. Responding with yet more force simply increases the instability, thereby locking the culture and its social institutions into a vicious cycle that will, as you so aptly put it, sink the whole country.

    It’s not like this hasn’t happened before.

    In any event, when one refuses to get caught up in the hysteria and propaganda and actually reads between the lines, it becomes immediately apparent that what we’re really witnessing is nothing less than The Pyrrhic Victory of The Hostile Elite.

  5. For a guy who wrote for Counterpunch, I’d say Mr. Whitney you’ve been clicking on Gateway Pundit once too often. Honestly a win for Trump is not exactly a win for the country. The millions of gun owners not caving to HR127; the millions of covidian cultists refusing to wear masks and hugging each other instead of 6 feet of separation; ordinary Americans handing BLM and Antifa their get outta town walking papers especially in blue cities; whites giving up their white guilt; the working class getting their jobs back and small businesses telling Amazon etc. to stick it where the sun don’t shine…NOW THAT’S A WIN FOR THE COUNTRY! And when the left goes back to supporting the working classes regardless of race….now that’s a win for the left, that has forgotten its roots. The Bill of Rights is a win for the country, and we all need to stick to it and NOT CONSENT TO COMMUNIST TYRANNY the criminal psycho elites want to get us to consent to. Seriously, Mr, Whitney, you can do better than sticking up for Trump and his “warp speed” “Noahide law” “Zioshillery” version of tyranny…it was TRUMP, not Biden, that got those (maybe) deadly vaccines out under EUA. And it will be Biden that makes it mandatory for all, regardless of what happens to Trump. NOT a win for the country, now, is it?

  7. The ruling class has to change course. If someone were to chart evil and corruption, the same way that they chart stocks, they would see that it won’t be long before they all decide to blow up the entire planet with nukes. I am not exagerating. They just get more and more evil! The scamdemic was a Globzi psyop. 

    Now they want to vaxx pregnant women, for a non life threatening virus, which was what really startled me, particularly since the vaccines have been killing so many people. When California decides that pregnant women should be vaxxed, which they did, it kind of looks like they plan on nuking the earth to me! Actually, almost everything is startling! What isn’t startling? These people are out of their minds! They just leave me stunned and dismayed! It is truly shocking! 

    The trajectory of the level, intensity, and frequency of evil and corruption is bleak for humanity and all life on earth! 

    How do we stop them? Hint, Republicans or Democrats are not the answer!

Hopefully all 70 million deplorables will be rounded up.

But it leaves a lot unsaid. What portion of US war operations are best understood as imperial wars conducted on behalf of Israel?

  13. That some people were motivated to grudgingly turn back to Trump because of BLM riots may be true, but also is explained by Trump getting millions more votes than he did last time. The problem was that this time MORE people had a visceral DISLIKE of Trump, egged on by the MSM. The vote wasn’t FOR the dilapidated Biden but AGAINST the despised Trump. Exactly where and how the fraud occurred has not been explained, nor why Trump’s record count is accurate and Biden’s is not. Also, why didn’t the Democrats plot to deprive other Republicans of their rightful victories while they were at it?

  16. There is no reason that Trump can’t be impeached again. The Constitution is very clear on that matter as Alan Dershowitz has explained. Impeachment proceedings against Trump can be done as many as four times a year. The precedent derives from ancient Jewish law relating to Ma’amad:

    MA’AMAD or MAHAMAD, council of elders in a Sephardi community or congregation in the West after the expulsion from Spain, corresponding to the *kahal (in the sense of the supreme community council) in Ashkenazi communities. Schooled by bitter memories of the crisis in Spain on the eve of the expulsion, the policy of the ma’amad tended to be conservative and authoritarian in the extreme. One of the characteristic features of ma’amad policy was that on completion of its term of office the ma’amad itself appointed its successors. A nominee was obliged to accept the assignment. Those who disobeyed the directives of the ma’amad were fined heavily, and in some cases were even excommunicated.

    Congress is obligated to continue to pursue impeachment.

    “Human beings in the last 200+ years have had enough of a taste of freedom to know that they prefer it to tyranny.”

    The record of 2020 contradicts that, as the overwhelming majority of Westerners unquestioningly obeyed when the TV shouted at them “Pandemic!!! You must Obey!!!!!”, no matter how absurd and fraudulent that propaganda obviously was, thereby making it clear they prefer any level of tyranny to even the most virtual sense of risk.

    This mass ecstasy of obedience included the overwhelming majority of those who self-identify as “anti-globalists”, “anti-imperialists”, “radicals”, “dissidents”, “the left”, and all who prior to 2020 would have said they never would trust the US government or imperial media. Suddenly they all agreed the government is competent, benevolent and honest and the likes of CNN and the Washington Post speak as the voice of God.

    And the state of abject obedience continues to this day, long after any point where anyone could claim uncertainly or that they were stampeded by panic. Since last summer anyone who still believes and obeys has been making a basically sober, deliberate decision to be a member of this new religion of “Covid”.

    Self–evidently, for any such cultist “freedom” is simply not a value at all. Never, not at the beginning nor later has any society conducted even the most cursory review of values and trade-offs and priorities. They all continue unquestioningly placing the alleged Covid danger at infinite and discounting literally every other value, including freedom, including resistance to tyranny, to zero.

    Now Trump is more powerful than when he was in the White House.

    And that was his trouble.

    Trump did little while president, and that by easily undone executive orders rather than legislation. We thank him for what he did but if and when someone better gets to the White House they should emulate the Leftists and start working the very first day in office.

    Where and how has been explained a thousand times, including many times at Unz.

    As for the count, since the counters, including the Dominion machine algorithms, systematically inflated Biden’s count and undercounted Trump’s vote, we can take the number they actually give for Trump as either accurate or lower than the truth.

    It’s an elementary rule: Wherever power gives evidence against its own book, that can be taken as true or understating the truth.

    I voted for him both times. I was a Democrat all my life. For some reason it was during the horrible George Bush years I started re-thinking it all. I did Not vote for Obomba, but that is when I realized I could not support Dems anymore. Obomba sealed it for me. Dems changed during the Clinton years, when big Tech was on the rise.

    Peter Schiff, a financial advisor and stock portfolio manager, claims that during the Trump administration the national debt increased twice as much as it did under Obama, and under Obama it had increased more than all previous administrations combined. I haven’t verified that but obviously a massive amount of dollar-money has been created out of thin air, consequently inflation and stagnation are ahead.

    I’m amazed by the acquittal of Trump. Some of the arguments are astounding and demonstrate beyond a shadow of a doubt the c r a z y t o w n double standards of conservative white men:

    1. The entire crime was played out in public, not only on national media, but made possible by it. The evidence is so aboveboard and the media so transparent. it somehow disappeared in plain sight!

    2. The claim that because the trial is theater it is to be dismissed is absurd, Trump’s politics are nothing if not theater. But lighting the theater on fire is one step beyond.

    3. The GOP’s idea that the crime expired when Trump left office is ludicrous jurisprudence.

    4. The pure pandering of the GOP to its own political future makes them just mob operatives and bosses and nothing more. This is the essence of McConnell, who plays it both ways like a total goon.

    5. The outright hypocrisy of the GOP to its core values of personal responsibility and law & order has reached Neptune (Chomsky ref) and is headed into deep space

    I doubt that a second term of Trump would have done more than the largely rhetorical and/or symbolic efforts of the last term. Still over-regulated and over-taxed, while apparently the more protective aspect of environmental regs were abolished while it still is a pain to get any permits for us peasants. And what was done, is actively being undone with great haste and apparent efficacy.

    Trump was a coward to lay the law down, within the Executive or wherever order was threatened with riots. Astonishing to believe that he did not listen to any political outsider to staff his admin, create his own channel/platform, or took his zio-son-in-law’s advice to not leave twatter for alternatives, to bypass the censors and weaken them as well. Wasted years of infighting, sabotage, and incompetence.

    Us wizened up serfs can only be but pessimistic and cynical, while we watch literal and cultural vandals raze the country, the states seize our property for bs civil asset forfeitures, tax us out of the market, and provide aid and comfort to enemies foreign and domestic.
    Small is beautiful, this Union is failing, and what else to do but promote local politics, economy, and secession?

    Mike Whitney – excellent article. Very well said.

    I agree that Trump won that election in a landslide, but the establishment elite (both Democrats and Republicans working together) rigged it and stole it. They do NOT want to give up their power and their dreams of globalization. They are traitors and liars, all of them, beholden to the multinational corporations, China and Israel.

    It’s for sure the Democrats are not to be trusted. They are completely bought. And the Republicans should only be trusted if the old guard is completely tossed out on their ears. How could anyone get anything done with friends like these? The whole of the Washington establishment needs to be thrown to the curb.

    IF Trump is sincere, IF he is not in league with the establishment elite (as some say he is), and if the elite realize they are losing control, then they will steal all they can in the next four years and leave behind scorched earth. The Federal Reserve will simply pull away the punch bowl. “Here you go, President Trump, you can have it back now.” If they have to hand it over, they will destroy it first.

    Some people say that Trump didn’t do anything. Seriously, with what he had to contend with, how could he have? He was too busy being stabbed in the back.

About 20 cars and 30 bikes (decent turn out for the cars, low for the bikes), but lots of people — restaurant / bar was packed from 6 pm (when we arrived) to after 9 pm (took over an hour to get a table, the place seats about 150 inside and out). Saw very few masks, maybe a dozen or so all told, except for the staff. There was a roving mariachi band (six members) that didn’t bother with masks.

    I thought the whole thing was rather straightforward and obvious:

    1. Trumpstein did not incite violence by any rational standard. His lawyers played a long compilation tape of Democrat politicians saying exactly the same thing without any consequences or pearl clutching by anybody.

    2. The invasion of the Capitol building was clearly a setup. The Capitol police made no attempt to keep crowds out of the building like they are actually employed to do. The official narrative is that this was due to inept leadership, but this is a rather convenient excuse, a bit like naively believing that the US was not aware that the Japanese Navy was heading towards Pearl Harbor in December 1941. Well played, Party* gerontocracy and affiliated corporate elites! That’s two wildly successful covert operations in as many months, the other being the fake election.

    3. The massive beat-up of confected hysteria by the media, turning a mildly raucous event into an ‘insurrection’ complete with police state witch-hunt of the mainly bumbling dupes who participated, culminating in yet another show trial of the leftists preferred scapegoat/scumbag, is to anybody with half a brain, symptomatic of the massively diseased and terminally cancerous state of the modern JewSA.

    The storming of the Capitol building by a violent mob was the last act of the comedy horror series called the Trump Show.

It provided solace to America’s enemies- the Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians among others.
    The man many of us previously ridiculed as our Toddler in Chief revealed himself to be a fascist gangster on the 6th of Jan. In the manner of countless Third World and East European dictators Trump tried to overthrow American democracy by refusing to accept the verdict of the people. The sight of pro slavery Southern flags in a building which, more than any other place in America is an architectural symbol of the US constitution was an act of infamy. Yes, tough jail sentences will follow. But this will not pacify what is turning out to be Trump’s biggest legacy. The creation of a nationwide movement consisting of violent hard right thugs.
    In many ways Trump is the original RINO. Until the eve of Obama’s first term Trump was a registered Democrat and contributed to Hillary’s presidential campaign during the primaries. Trump jumped on the Republican bandwagon late in life and has come close to destroying the brand.

If you have ‘the conscience of a conservative’ a Trump is a means to that end.

    Trump has effectively vanquished his enemies and made himself the most powerful politician in America. He’s a conservative Colossus, a Republican kingmaker who is now in a position to hand-pick the party’s leaders in the next election cycle and (perhaps) for many cycles to come. As Marjorie Taylor Greene so aptly put it: “Trump IS the Republican party. It’s his party now”.”

    Even if all that is true and “Trump IS the Republican party” now, so the hell what?

    It makes no difference in the end, [except perhaps entertainment-wise 😎].

    Trump is just another loud mouth , grandiose, misguided[although probably well-intentioned], fool offering yet more government , fake “solutions” to problems that the government has almost invariably caused in the first place.

    Like any other politician, his appeal is to those either naive enough, or stupid enough, or clueless enough to believe that his particular grandiose government “solutions” to _anything_ [everything?] , would actually work.

    And his being a businessman makes absolutely no difference at all.

    This Just In: Governments Are _Not_ Businesses!

    Trump and his supporters are all clueless as to the fact that governments are _not_ businesses, by any stretch of the either the imagination, or definition.

    What are they, then?

    This “just” in: “Taking the State wherever found, striking into its history at any point, one sees no way to differentiate the activities of its founders, administrators and beneficiaries from those of a professional-criminal class.” Albert J. Nock

    “The State is a gang of thieves writ large – the most immoral, grasping and unscrupulous individuals in any society.”Murray Rothbard

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

    Bottom Line:

    There are NO government solutions to ANY problem [ except its getting entirely _out_ of any perceived problem area, e.g. health care, race issues, education, roads and infrastructure, communications, drug/substance “abuse”, religion, etc. etc. etc. ad infinitum], and, at the very least, returning to its original, strictly limited constitutional functions, requiring an approximate 90-95% reduction in its size, something which Trump has never even suggested. Heck, he’s never talked about _any_ across the board cuts in the size of the federal government!

    This also “just” in”:

    Government is a disease masquerading as its own cure” Robert LeFevere [Trump is just the latest witch doctor offering more of the same disease]

    “Everything government touches turns to crap” Ringo Starr [

    “The kind of man who wants the government to adopt and enforce his ideas is always the kind of man whose ideas are idiotic” H.L.Mencken

    Mr Trump, if you ever read any of the above, [unlikely, I know] please read this short, simple ,clear explanation of why government solutions can never work:

  54. @Just another serf

    A nominee was obliged to accept the assignment. Those who disobeyed the directives of the ma’amad were fined heavily, and in some cases were even excommunicated.

    There’s something hinky about the suicide of Jamie Raskin’s son, and especially about Raskin’s reaction to it.
    Was Tommy Raskin ritually murdered, to force Raskin to take up the role in what has clearly been a jewish psychodrama? (or is Tommy not dead at all but cohabiting with Epstein in Israel?)

    Raskin was fully on board with the Antifa – BLM riots — “peaceful protests,” as he characterized them on several occasions.
    Atzmon wrote that Covid masks are an element of Jewish ritual, and very oddly, when Raskin “announced” the death of his son, the sub-head was a caution to mourners to “wear a mask and practice social distancing.” wtf? Is that the first thing you think of when “brilliant” son has just killed himself?

    Slaying – or not slaying — the first-born son has a strong tradition in Hebrew mythos. It’s worth noting that Benjamin Netanyahu is the second son of arch-zionist Benzion Netanyahu: Jonathan, his elder brother, was the only Israeli soldier killed in the July 4, 1976 assault at Entebbe.

    The three Stop the Steal rallies introduced the Jewish psychodrama with sounding of the ram’s horn — two of them, and a rabbi who recited something in Hebrew. C Span clipped that segment from its archive of the event, but in Mike Flynn’s comments, he repeated the opening theme of the rally, “We are here to topple the walls of Jericho.” Other participants in the rallies blew unmistakably large ram’s horns.

    TruNews reporters were on the scene at the rallies. They interviewed two Jews, one wearing a patch on his motorcycle jacket of “Jews for Trump” or something like that. He said he was there to “Do whatever Trump told the people to do,” he did not know what that would be. TruNews also reported on the busloads of Jews who motored from New York to DC to “do what Trump told them to do.”

    The second interviewee was a woman, also wearing motorcycle gear, with a couple patches of Star of David with a heart over it: I love Israel. She stated that she was a former Israeli intelligence officer.

    His conduct of the trial reprised Robert Jackson’s characterization of the Nuremberg trials; as Rabbi Stephen Wise wrote, “the greatest trial in history, with what Jackson calls its broad departure from AngloSaxon legal tradition.”

    That the centerpiece of Raskin’s “evidence” was a cherry-picked conglomeration of scenes of violence is not surprising, is straight out of holocaust atrocity-propaganda. Cora Sol Goldstein opens her study of the visual psychological warfare carried out against the German people post-war this way:

    “My goal is to highlight the importance of information control and mass propaganda in radical regime change and to illustrate the role of the visual in mass propaganda. In the television era, it is inconceivable to think of psychological warfare without images. But visual propaganda has always been as important as verbal messages. Images are often more effective than words in capturing the attention of the viewer, and they are better able than written and oral texts to crystallize sentiments. Images simplify and convince. If something is visually represented, viewers tend to assume that it happened, that it exists, that it is true. Visual images are overwhelmingly important in the interpretation of our conscious world, shaping the way we consider ourselves and others.

    The falsification of Raskin’s frankly B-grade collection of visual images simultaneously falsifies the holocaust narrative.

    ____
    nb. For his part in putting the stamp of Jewish ritual and grievance on the whole affair, Chuck Schumer seeks to brand Jan 6 as a “day of infamy,” a new Pearl Harbor.
    In Christian tradition the feast of the Epiphany, when the three Persian wise men followed the Star and found the Anointed One, the Christ child, and returned to their homes in a way to avoid Herod, who sought to slay the presumed threat to his throne. (Christians commemorate Herod’s Slaughter of the Innocents on Dec. 28.)

    How else to explain the actions of Pelosi and McConnell? Both are near the end of their careers and seem hellbent to shit the bed on their way out.

    “Evidence of a statement by a declarant having sufficient knowledge of the subject is not made inadmissible by the hearsay rule if the declarant is unavailable as a witness and the statement, when made, was so far contrary to the declarant’s pecuniary or proprietary interest, or so far subjected him to the risk of civil or criminal liability, or so far tended to render invalid a claim by him against another, or created such a risk of making him an object of hatred, ridicule, or social disgrace in the community, that a reasonable man in his position would not have made the statement unless he believed it to be true.”

    However, the heavy lifting has yet to begin. Let’s face some facts – Trump’s success in both 2016 and 2020 was due to an already dissatisfied populace looking for an answer – those Deplorables- so they placed their hopes on a ‘messiah’ who discovered in the last 4-5 years that he did not have the infrastructure necessary to bring about the changes hoped for. Hell, he had as many enemies inside his administration as outside – DaSwamp is deep!
    The reality is that change, if it comes and lasts, will have to be with us – yup, you and me!

    The GDP is a massively false paradigm. Much of it is comprised of non-productive (parasitical) economic “activity”. Much of the rest of it hinges on environmentally destructive and personally degrading consumerism. Ours is an “economy” based on waste. Planned obsolescence. “‘Save, save, save, buy now and throw away tomorrow.”

    Refrigerators are a prime example. In 1995 I bought at auction a ca 1953 GE refrigerator, which just keeps on keeping on. Those models were constructed to satisfy a consumer demand which had fallen away during the Great Depression and World War II, where such appliances were either too expensive for many Americans to buy or not available during the belt-tightening war years. Shortly after 1953,with the consumer market more and more glutted, planned obsolescence began creeping into the equation. Ten years later, by ’63 that new business model on the part of investor owned corporations,became obvious to anyone with eyes to see, ears to hear and hands to connect the nuts and bolts of “adjusted” reality.

    Common Sense has virtually disappeared from American culture. Hollywood and boobtoob noose and relentless advertising has captivated the minds of the public. The very word economy became obsolescent with the disappearance of home-ec from our high schools. Economy means to economize, to save and to make do. Credit cards in hand, suburban Americans spend like drunken Irish sailors on shore leave.

    BTW Chinaman: Those you apparently consider as deplorable, are the ones who do the actual, real productive work. Most of the rest of employed Americans are keystrokers and button-pushers, ordered around by governmental administrators and corporate bureaucrats. Squatting atop the economic scrotumpole are various types of parasites, include coupon-clipper sons of riches and those who get their ill-gotten gains from the FIRE sector: Finance, Insurance and Real Estate speculation.

    Yeah, like Trump could have taken out his medical degree and started spouting off the truth!

    Trump DID come out and stress that he is was taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure, and he was vilified for saying this. Flanked by the real liars, the so-called medical experts, who themselves were fully supported by the lying media, what did you expect Trump to do? Did YOU understand at the time that Covid was nothing more serious than the flu? No one did.

    Coincidentally, now that the vaccines are up and running and all the cheats and liars have made a fortune, suddenly the cheap, off-patent drugs that really could have saved lives have been upgraded by the CDC. This all happened AFTER the election, just coincidentally. Many of the doctors who spoke out in favor of these cheap, proven drugs were fired from their jobs, or they were prevented from using these drugs because the CDC did not approve of their use (until AFTER the election).

    The only way the real thieves could get these vaccines through is to get an EUA (Emergency Use Application). In order to get an EUA, it must be proven that there are no alternative, effective, already-proven remedies available. That’s why they kept the cheap, off-patent drugs I mentioned above off the market and fired doctors who used them. It was the only way they could get fast-tracked for the not-tested-on-animals vaccines.

    This has been the biggest scam and killer ever perpetrated on the American people. How could Trump, who is not a medical expert, have been expected to know at the time what we are learning now?

    Many Republicans are afraid of the following that Trump enjoys and do not want to lose those votes. That’s why Trump was not convicted. Otherwise, loyal Republicans constitute a minority of about 25% of the country because most people realize that Republicans are worse than the pathetic Democrats, especially when it comes to populist programs.

    Trump is a despicable excuse for a human being. A con artist that could not make a go of a gambling casino and has dodged fraud convictions while paying civil fines for a fake University and being forced to shut down his New York Charity because he used it for his personal enrichment and aggrandizement. His campaigning as a populist is a fraud. He has sought to cut every government benefit that remained after Bill Clinton took an axe to them, with the full support and delight of the Republican Party.

    Trump lost the popular vote in 2016 and 2020. The bizarre Electoral College h.as delivered the two worst Presidents in American history. But even those victories would have been impossible without gerrymandering and voter suppression tactics of the Republican Party which have never been properly punished because the perpetrators control the State Governments which practice these election crimes.

    We have already seen more deaths from Covid-19 than from Vietnam or WWII. Democrats made the decision to put lives before profits with mixed results. But, the recommendations of pandemic experts work best when enforced with dictatorial certainty or nearly full compliance from a population that trusts its government to be looking out for its best interests. That explains why almost every country in the world has been better able to manage Covid risks than the United States. Socialist Sweden regrets the outcomes from following policies similar to what Trump and the Republican Party recommends, which is the economy is more important than poor peoples lives. To a Republican immigrants working in agricultural harvesting or meat packing are both essential and disposable.

    We probably haven’t seen the last of Trump criminal cases of attempted vote tampering in Georgia or tax evasion and fraud in New York. Trump has never had a health care plan to replace the Obama plan which secured the insurance industry’s profit position. Trump and the Republicans prefer a system in which every citizen loses their health care whenever they lose their job and never has any health care for pre-existing conditions. The notion that Trump is a populist comes straight out of the Geoobell’s handbook, as does most of Whitney’s commentary here.

    There is an old saying that goes something like: No man’s life, liberty, or property are safe as long as Congress is in session. Thus, as no legislation could move in the Senate while Trump’s impeachment trial was occurring, it was the next best thing. I was saddened to discover on Saturday that the devious Dems thought better than to start calling witnesses, after Trump’s pit bull lawyer, Michael van der Veen, threatened to depose Pelosi and Kamala in his Philadelphia office. What great fun that would have been!

    BTW, where was van der Veen on the opening day of Trump’s defense? They sure could have used him to spice things up. A month of witnesses, which should have included grilling Auntie Maxine and slimy Schumer as well, would have been great for ailing TV ratings. And it would have been the most watched show in history if Trump had been summoned as well.

    Now, it’s all ended, not with a bang, but a whimper. Congress can resume picking our pockets with counterproductive legislation, like more trillion dollar Covid relief, and more money for deadly vaccines to thin out the elderly population.

Covid was a good excuse for doing this.

    But I was not 100% sure on the medical front because I’m not a medical expert. I became more and more skeptical as time went on (which didn’t take long) and more information became available.

    This – whatever descriptive we give it – political conglomeration aka the ‘United States’ had residual elements of Empire – 1000 ish military bases and uncounted numbers of biological warfare related facilities outside its borders. It still militarily occupied Japan and Germany and Italy and South Korea and many other countries.

    Doctrine promoting ‘full spectrum domination’ – that is, the intention of achieving global totalitarian control – was still hanging in the air and influencing behaviour. The Federal Reserve dollar was still the dominant international currency. The United States was still a heavyweight in the IMF and UN Security Council. Many countries remained de facto vassal to it (Canada, Australia, Norway …)

    At home a police state had been in place for generations, but the mass media and educational system steadfastly refused to call a spade a spade. The mass media had comprehensively for generations been a mind warping propaganda system. Publicly execute JFK and RFK. In response the political and judicial system and the media have been comatose or lying to the people for half a century.

    The treasonous false flag 9/11 2001 is carried out, and again, the mass media tell lies and censors and the political system is silent or complicit in buttressing the official lies. More police state measures are implemented, and mass murdering wars of aggression abroad are initiated. The more general ‘war on terror’ war of terror is launched, which is actually merely the old policy of subversion, robbery, murder etc abroad given a new title and a refurbished rationale (from fighting communists to fighting terrorists).

    Meanwhile at home the middle class and the blue collar workers and the infrastructure are in steady decline. 40 % of Americans are living hand to mouth while billionaires proliferate. Tens of millions are on anti depressants, while tens of millions more are morbidly obese or beset with chronic serious health problems. Etc. Growing basket case.

    Meanwhile David Rockefeller famously confesses that he and his family (and fellow ‘intellectual elite’ and banking exemplars) have been working against the best interests of America and towards the goal of world government. Sort of a Rockefeller Pinky and the Brain syndrome, but not a cartoon, a real intention, steadily worked towards. He writes that all we need is the “right big crisis” and voila, we will have it!!: World Government. The New World Order.

    Then something happened. Whatever folly and genius and everything in between Donald J. Trump possesses, whatever his intentions conscious or unconscious might have been, he in 2o16 won election over the selection of the Powers that BE. They tried to steal the election, but the tide for Trump was too strong.

    In the wake of this political rookie’s election, while he may have been naive, and foolish, and made any number of questionable moves, he was also facing the entire phalanx of the global establishment.

    One of his first acts was to announce that he was going to drain the swamp, and all the many powerful swamp creatures took this as an unforgivable and deeply threatening public challenge. So a four year unending attack on Trump by FBI, DOJ, mass media, former CIA, European politicians, tech giants, and the American political establishment ensued.

    Equally guaranteed to create a massive effort by the PTB was his rhetoric on behalf of national sovereignty and against globalism – The Rockefeller-esque extended pipedream. One of his first acts was to cancel the TPP, which had threatened a further erosion of national sovereignty on behalf of the power of transnational corporate and financial power.

    Another fundamental really priceless contribution that Trump made was to continually and pointedly jeer at and identify the “fake news”: The NYT and CNN were subjected to the public humiliation of a sitting President continually accurately describing them.

    Trump’s willingness to call out the mass media propaganda and brainwashing system that the CIA under largely Jewish auspices (or vise versa?) had intensely inflicted on the American people for decades was an indispensable act of rebellion. American politics and media is dependent upon the pretense that it is legit. Trump’s message was: there’s something deeply wrong here: Fake news and the Swamp.

    Trump also at least gave frequent voice to the desirability of reducing American military activity and presence abroad, and stands in contrast to his Nobel Peace Prize winning predecessor Barry ( aka B.O.) Soetoro (Libya destroyed) and George Bush the Latter (Iraq and Afghanistan attacked) and Clinton (Serbia attacked). Trump as comparatively a deplorable peacenik.

    So then we have the COVID- psyop, creating de facto world medical martial law, which is a kind of sick facsimile to Rockefeller’s pipe dream. And also, dislocating, disorienting, social and economic turmoil and pain. Trump was placed at the center of that storm, surrounded by ghoulish Fauci and the CDC and the Bill Gates contaminated WHO.

    Then the looters and burners and rioters were let loose. And the underlying goal was to have Americans so sick of it all and Trump could be blamed and surely he would be thrown out of office.

    But even so, no. He wins in a huge landslide. And the Swamp goes all out and installs a pathetic creature in Trump’s place. This story is not over ….

    Trump’s fortune went down by \$2B during his presidency. — MLK

    So you’re his bookkeeper? Accountant? Tax attorney? If you’re going to make an assertion of fact, how about a credible citation.

    I don’t know much about Trump’s finances, except for a recent announcement by Deutsche Bank, with which Trump supposedly has had a long relationship and several outstanding loans / mortgages, that it would no longer do business with him. Speculation by the source of this information, Zerohedge, indicated that this could cause some financial problems for Mr. Trump, if he is unable to secure alternative sources of financing, as those loans mature.

    Trump became president on his own steam. — MLK

    According to Open Secrets.org, Trump raised \$396,152,428 / 51.17% of his campaign funds from large donors and \$378,084,012 / 48.83% from small donors (<\$200) during the 2020 election. He did self-finance a large fraction of his 2016 campaign expenses.

    https://www.opensecrets.org/2020-presidential-race/donald-trump/candidate?id=N00023864

    That was the genesis of both the unbounded resentment toward him. — MLK

    I don’t know, exactly, the well-spring of Democrat and Never-Trump Republican animosity. But I suspect a few things: 1) Trump was set-up by both parties as a straw-man for Hillary, but ended up hoisting her with her own petard instead; 2) openly criticized not only the news media, but politicians from both parties openly, insulting and humiliating them; and 3) once in office attempted to change long-established bi-partisan U.S. policies… As Vladimir Putin accurately observed “Presidents change, policy doesn’t.”

    … there was no place for their selfish rackets in his budding America First world. — MLK

    Reread number three above.

    Rather obviously you’re among the many he makes feel bad about themselves. I get that, I really do.
    — MLK

    No, you really don’t.

    I have no strong feelings about Trump, one way or the other. Moreover, I consider the term billionaire populist an oxymoron. Nevertheless, I voted for Trump twice. The first time because he wasn’t Hillary. The second because the intelligence agencies and their minions opposed him, and it was fairly obvious what was being set up (re: the election fraud).

    Unlike you, I am not a Trump fanboi. Although I would like to think he was (and is) sincere, I don’t know that that is an accurate assessment. His abandonment of Flynn, and to a lesser degree Bannon, taken together with his appointment of bankers, dual citizens, and known deep state swamp creatures gives me pause. Especially considering those appointees who later bragged about deceiving him and thwarting his changes in policy, it calls into question his judgment, firstly for appointing and secondly for trusting them.

    I neglected to mention that another extremely important contribution that Trump made (in my opinion) was in repudiating the global warming/climate change psyop.

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has had enormous political influence by producing incomplete, pretentious, politicized, agenda-laden, zealous and corrupt climate ‘science’. But this ‘science’ was deemed so solid in much of mass media and education and politics that to question it became serious heresy

    Implied by the dishonest and absurd and evil thesis that human beings were driving climate change was that human beings, their vehicles, their cows, and the very act of so many people breathing, were a dire overarching threat.

    This sanctified for many the thesis that drastic changes to human behaviour and drastic population reduction were justified. Change is necessary, and so much more that is good could be done. But the climate change psyop deflected much policy away from really urgent and beneficent environment-related change towards a faux environmentalism, the kind that hypocrites like Bill Gates and Al Gore could become the champions of.

What he doesn’t say is that would have happened if anyone else had been elected too except if the new president made policy changes that would sink his chances of re-election because the changes needed will make many millions of people’s lives much harder in order to turn the USA’s economy around. The US is now adding debt a rate that Biden might surpass Trump’s debt within a year or two and if the economy crashes within the next four years it would make Trump’s chances of being re-elected that much easier. In Trump’s defense, he talked about the debt problem during his first election campaign and if the media had not been working 24/7 for four years to paint him as the most evil man in history (alright, maybe number two) he might have tried to tackle the debt problem too. But maybe not, because only a few of the experts see a problem and that makes it very hard to address.

    I think some people see the Democratic Party is on the side of racists, real racists that openly despise Whites, calling the American majority “racists”, bigots, “White supremacists”, “anti-Semites”, people with “White privilege” and many other insults. This kind of hateful language is only directed at Whites and I think White people will recognize they are the targets. But to many it doesn’t make sense.

    The record of 2020 contradicts that, as the overwhelming majority of Westerners unquestioningly obeyed when the TV shouted at them

    I agree. It would have been better if I was more specific. So, I do that here.

    In my comment I didn’t say all human beings. What I had in mind in terms of quantity is that enough human beings to form a critical mass do prefer freedom to tyranny. And they do.

    The hostile elite certainly thinks so. Otherwise there would have been no need to lay it on so thick. It was far from being a simple case of Command and Obey.

    Since last summer anyone who still believes and obeys has been making a basically sober, deliberate decision to be a member of this new religion of “Covid”.

    This sentence is a paralogism. It contradicts itself and the rest of your comment. If a person obeys out of fearfulness and cowardice then sober and deliberate is the last thing their decision is.

    Especially if, as you said (and, again, correctly) that freedom isn’t even a value to such people. In that case they haven’t made choice, they’ve simply and automatically obeyed.

    Since they don’t value freedom, freedom of choice never enters in to it.

    Though I agree with a lot of what you said, you were wrong to attribute the obedience to everyone. Not everyone is going along with the program. Hence the need for the constant use of censorship and force.

    But, a larger, more important point is that even if everyone did obey, the hostile elite will still fail. It’s a mistake to think they’re invincible. They’re not. Hence their panic and hysteria.

    Here’s one of many readily available links on the reported drop in Trump’s fortune during his presidency:

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/trump-lost-2-billion

    What I characterized as Trump becoming president on his own steam was identified by Kissinger days after the 2016 election:

    “This president-elect is the most unique that I have experienced in one respect,” Mr. Kissinger, 93, said Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS.”

    “He has absolutely no baggage,” he said. “He has no obligation to any particular group because he has become a president on the basis of his own strategy and a program he put before the American public that his competitors did not present. So that is a unique situation.”

    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/nov/21/henry-kissinger-donald-trump-has-absolutely-no-bag/

    I was wrong to locate you among those who Trump’s achievements made feel bad about themselves. Though perhaps you will see the efficacy of what I’m saying as applied to so many others.

    Presidents’ Day in a Divided Nation

    February 15th is Presidents’ Day.

    America has two Presidents on this day, besides Washington and Lincoln.
    One half of the country believes Trump rightfully won.

    Yet the events of Jan. 6th still hang like a cloud over Washington.
    Critics fault his claims of a stolen election for provoking the protests.

    But what if the Democrats really did steal the election? Wouldn’t the fault be theirs?
    And how can we know whether they really stole it?
    Claims of “Massive fraud” on one side vs. “No sign of fraud” on the other — who is right?

    One thing is crystal clear:
    Unconstitutional, illegal changes to voting laws generated millions of irregular ballots — a hundred times greater than the margin between the candidates, in some swing states. If the balloting is illegal, there is no way the count can be correct.

    An unconstitutional vote can only produce an unconstitutional result. Everything that followed — the certification of the popular vote, the electoral college vote, and the inauguration — none of these steps had any legal foundation.
    Bad data makes bad decisions. Since Nov. 3, our machinery of government has been spinning off course on erroneous, unlawful inputs.

    The only solution in such cases is to correct the error.
    Until runoff elections are held in conformity with the law, we will still have two Presidents.
    Only one of them can be the rightful one.

Rebel or resist, and watch your abilities to work, enroll your kids in school, access the banking system, use the internet, purchase groceries and gasoline, and leave your state become restricted or suspended.
    So…you’ve got guns. Big deal. What are you going to do with them? You’re going to take your 9mm and 12 gauge out of the safe, load them, and….what? Wait til the stormtroopers try to kick open your door? Or are you going out to lay siege to DC? By yourself? Or are you forming a militia? With who? Do you have names? Communications? A battle plan? Can those people in your militia be trusted, or is one a mole for local LE or the FBI? How do you know?
    How will you know who to shoot? How will you know when to start shooting? How will you know when to stop shooting? What if a more organized force, with superior weapons, leadership and training, starts shooting back? Will you confront a SWAT team? Will you confront Secret Service snipers? Would you shoot a cop? Would you go to city hall in your hometown and threaten the mayor with a gun? Burst into a city council meeting waving your Glock demanding….what, exactly? Do you have ammo? I mean tons. How much cash can you get your hands on? A safe house? How safe is it though?

    Kissinger’s comment is accurate, as far as it goes.

    But it’s simple fact that no billionaire is an island. It might be more accurate to say that Trump was not a member of The Club, much like H. Ross Perot who ran for President, under his own steam, in 1992. (Remember NAFTA will be a giant sucking sound of U.S. jobs being sent to Mexico?)

    One of the reasons I gave Trump benefit of the doubt in 2016 was my complete miscalculation regarding Perot’s candidacy in 1992. And I knew there was so little difference between GHW Bush’s and WJ Clinton’s substantive policies that it absolutely did not matter who won, having written a 4,500 word think piece analyzing the reasons for those non-existent differences which was published in a Little Rock news weekly just before election day.

    One key issue, when evaluating Trump, is the disconnect between his rhetoric and appointments. It is not possible to drain the swamp by appointing swamp creatures to oversee the work.

    There are only three explanations for this: 1) Trump, as Paul Craig Roberts notes, was unseasoned and in over his head; or 2) is simply a fool; or 3) knew exactly what he was doing.

    No contradiction at all. Panic can’t last forever and certainly had settled down by summer. At that point people that still unquestioningly comply are doing so in a basically deliberate way. Intellectually they’re still in chaos, but emotionally they’re settling down in their decision to join this new religion.

    “Though I agree with a lot of what you said, you were wrong to attribute the obedience to everyone. Not everyone is going along with the program. Hence the need for the constant use of censorship and force.”

    I sure hope more people will resist the program. But so far even the people I know who are skeptical or who agree the whole thing is a scam still shrug and comply in order to go along to get along.

    You’re right that the censorship proves not only that the system is lying but that they fear that propagation of the facts and truth will lead to broader resistance.

    “But, a larger, more important point is that even if everyone did obey, the hostile elite will still fail. It’s a mistake to think they’re invincible. They’re not. Hence their panic and hysteria.”

    Certainly the entire epidemiological premise, that any artificial institutions (let alone those organized only for profiteering) can prevent any bug from completing its natural cycle once it’s widely at large in the environment, is a form of Dominion theology doomed to fail.

    But as history proves that if enough people obey they can impose totalitarian social control and physical terror upon populations, for as long as this structure exists until it collapses on account of economic and ecological factors.

    Probably the best ground for hope is that the Covid terror-lockdown assault requires active participation by the people (compliance with edicts on face diapers, anti-social hex distancing, getting stabbed with a gene-engineering agent, shutting down business and entertainment etc.) and not just passive acceptance.

    Can you please explain or describe what “updating the culture” actually looks like and how it’s done?

    Well, nobody quite wants to go into that. However, since you asked:
    This has happened before several times. Some branch of humanity finds that its organization just doesn’t fit reality anymore. Everything has become unworkable and the climate has changed (which it does from time to time, sometimes, as in the effect of widespread agriculture, human driven).

    And the result is that human behavior changes as much as it has to for the survivors’ descendents to fit the new conditions.

    So we get episodes like the 1600s. See: Geoffery Porter, title: Global Crisis: War, Climate Change, & Catastrophe in the Seventeenth Century, published back in 2013.

    Before the 1600s Europe was a mix on Catholicism (South) and Protestants (North). Both took their religion very seriously — the society was based on religion with a hefty dose of political conflict. It was also being conquered by Islam, from East to West. By 1700 the religious society was no more, the Enlightenment had begun along with our current form of government (Westphalian) and the West had stopped Islam in Europe, was breaking out of Europe and was winning wars with empires on the other side of the globe. That was a major reorganization, just a part of which was he 30 Years War. It involved substantial climate change also, which continued into the 1800s but didn’t cause major wars after the 1600s.

    Compared to the 1600s, the Napoleonic Wars, even the World Wars, have had little effect on Western society. Right now we have an overpopulated planet that depends on complex trade routes to keep people fed (especially Africa and Asia) and that seems determined to stop the technological society that keeps the trade routes down (Abolish Whiteness!!!) in the face of what looks like early stages of a climate change. Reorganization is going to happen and be something like the 1600s. Except that you can’t really predict winners in any kind of war — the West might lose.

    Churchill almost nailed it when he said that you can always depend on Americans to do the right thing, after they have tried everything else. Change “Americans” to “humans” and you have another universal rule. Another is that somebody always survives “thanks to the fortunate events that led to our present supremacy”.

    Of course Trump was in over his head, how could one man in his position not be.

    This is why he was and remains the recipient of unbounded resentment. His candidacy, and then presidency, was always intended to be filed by the powers that be under ‘He was his own worst enemy.’

    I can have this exchange with you because you’re not Trump deranged. Though, while Trump was referring to the lovely AOC and her squad when he said “They’re never happy,” it applied to his supporter-critics as well.

    Everything didn’t change when Trump came down the escalator. Since then, for those paying attention, we’ve learned that Trump was treated as another day at the office by the permanent government and its wider tentacles — domestic and foreign; elite and mere Nomenklatura; governmental or playfully referred to as private. Yes, they had to play catch-up in developing compromising information to use against him as they had against all politician; and, yes, they got their tits caught in a wringer because he was a billionaire who hadn’t previously run for office so they had to go the frame-up/fabrication route, after he refused to drop out after Access Hollywood.

    My point is that they’ve been doing this to everyone because a compromised POTUS is easily housebroken. In the modern era, each successive POTUS until Trump was farther in the direction Figurehead/Pitchman, with Trump flipping the needle near the other Real POTUS end of the spectrum.

    It’s worth remembering, all it took for Obama’s housebroken coming out party was a mild media ruffing up after he offered his thoughts on the arrest of Skip Gates. After that he dutifully read what was written for him on his teleprompter.

    If you think about it, the Charlottesville hit-job was the same script. Just with a jazzed up pretext as all incoming fire directed at Trump would be.

    Whereas they snapped Obama like a butter bean even though they were all pulling for him anyway, they were never able to break Trump and they have never and will never forgive him for it.

    Whether one characterizes Trump as staggeringly courageous and tenacious, or foolhardy beyond belief. really tells us more about the opinion-holder than it does Trump.

    The older I get the more I attribute actions even at the commanding heights to base emotions and irrationality. The younger I was the more I was willing to believe these characters knew what they were doing and, even if misguided, believed they were acting in the national interest.

    Among Trumps many achievements is putting that one to bed. They’re not fooling anyone anymore.

    Everything else aside — and that a lot in my estimation — it’s impossible to overstate Trump’s achievements post-November 3rd. Everything that happened and was planned (e.g. false flags attributed to MAGA), derived from his refusal to concede.

    That’s an essential context to mention because there is now nothing they can do about it.

    But given that the anti-Trump alignment, domestic and foreign, formed in 2015, succeeded in their 2020 do-over and now control the whole shebang, what explains their despair? Heck, what explains MAGA’s cheerful energy?

    Not to put too fine a point on it, but the answer lies in which hand you would rather be playing in this republic with the overwhelming majority of Americans still stubbornly attached to the Rule of Law, free and fair elections, and that consent of the governed thingie.

    Yes, it’s going to be a hard day. But even a casual student of American history knows that the American Project is ill-suited to CCP China’s magic. “Assume we’ll be able to act with impunity contra the law and national interest; and that we’ll be able to steal every election going forward,” hardly strikes me as a brilliant plan in the US of A.

    Now Trump may be many things, but by no means does he offer anything substantive to those people who so laud him.
    He blew his chance, and the US will, like Solzhenitsyn stated, rue the day it allowed blood-soaked communists to take over the nation.

    Rich Republican Rube Has Misgivings, Wants 2 Million Back From True the Vote

    https://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/a-gop-donor-gave-2-5-million-for-a-voter-fraud-investigation-now-he-wants-his-money-back/

    //Trump’s campaign and the Republican Party collected \$255 million in two months, saying the money would support legal challenges to an election marred by fraud. Trump’s staunchest allies in Congress also raised money off those false allegations, as did pro-Trump lawyers seeking to overturn the election results – and even some of their witnesses.

    True the Vote was one of several conservative “election integrity” groups that sought to press the case in court.
    . . .
    Eshelman’s litigation, along with interviews, show how True the Vote’s private assurances that it was on the cusp of revealing illegal election schemes repeatedly fizzled as the group’s focus shifted from one allegation to the next. The nonprofit sought to coordinate its efforts with a coalition of Trump’s allies, including Trump attorney Jay Sekulow and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., the documents show.

    Eshelman has alleged in two lawsuits – one in federal court has been withdrawn and the other is ongoing in a Texas state court – that True the Vote did not spend his \$2 million gift and a subsequent \$500,000 donation as it said it would. Eshelman also alleges that True the Vote directed much of his money to people or businesses connected to the group’s president, Catherine Engelbrecht.

    Asked about the shifting focus from allegation to allegation, Engelbrecht said, “A good thorough investigation takes the course it takes, and we were not going to expose whistleblowers to make a quick headline.” She said that the group’s investigation “is ongoing even now.” In court documents, True the Vote says Eshelman’s money was spent properly.

    True the Vote’s lawyer, James Bopp, said that no conditions were attached to Eshelman’s donations and he is not entitled to the return of his money just because he didn’t like the outcome.//

    Of course Trump was in over his head, how could one man in his position not be. — MLK

    Which is pretty much my take as well. But we should be careful to not underestimate the hubris he drags along behind him. This is not a knock, merely a caution.

    … he was and remains the recipient of unbounded resentment. … — MLK

    And it is my guess that unbounded resentment will be channeled into woke lawfare and direct financial attacks over the next few years, especially if he remains active politically. He is most dangerous to the political status quo as a leader of the deplorables, keeping them organized and focused.

    But the form that leadership takes, and most importantly the political goals it establishes, is critical — it will define the difference between a genuine populist political opposition or mere support for another Presidential bid… and that difference is crucial.

    Even now Republicans are positioning themselves to absorb the deplorables’ political energy and channel it into their party. It would be a tragic mistake for Trump to allow this to happen.

    … a compromised POTUS is easily housebroken. … — MLK

    Honest Joe and Kamala the Hun are the epitome of this philosophy.

    One of the things which actually impressed me about Trump was that the entirety of the deep state’s intelligence networks couldn’t find any publically acceptable scandal with which to hang him. Hillary found it necessary to commission the fabricated Steele dossier and invent Russiagate to smear him (as well as move the spotlight off her unsecured servers and Seth Rich’s murder). In simple terms, though he had some questionable business deals (and what billionaire doesn’t), apparently he is essentially honest.

    In the modern era, each successive POTUS until Trump was farther in the direction Figurehead/Pitchman, with Trump flipping the needle near the other Real POTUS end of the spectrum. — MLK

    We agree insofar as Shrub and Obama are concerned. Both GHW Bush and WJ Clinton exercised actual power — Bush was born into it and Clinton enthusiastically joined up. Pete Buttigieg is another joiner.

    The two most salient points regarding Trump as POTUS appear to be 1) he was not a member of The Club, yet managed to get elected anyway, and 2) he refused to personally accept The Club’s management of his Presidency. Thus, he became embattled.

    Among Trumps many achievements… They’re not fooling anyone anymore. — MLK

    While I don’t think that statement is entirely accurate, because some people (a sizeable minority in fact) still believe the corporate media’s bullshit, all in all it’s a fair assessment. In fact, I think it his greatest achievement. He not only said aloud what many were thinking, but awakened tens of millions more, far more than alt-media alone could have ever done. This is what makes him so dangerous to the political status quo.

    … it’s impossible to overstate Trump’s achievements post-November 3rd. Everything that happened and was planned (e.g. false flags attributed to MAGA), derived from his refusal to concede. — MLK

    Make no mistake, what happened on the Democratic side was planned — all of it — and it all revolved around Trump contesting the election results. For all the chatter around here about predictive programming, it is interesting that few commentors picked up on the predictive programming broadcast far and wide by corporate media leading up to the election. Of course, with the benefit of hindsight, Time magazine and Molly Ball it’s much easier to see, but still…

    … the anti-Trump alignment … succeeded in their 2020 do-over and now control the whole shebang, what explains their despair? Heck, what explains MAGA’s cheerful energy? — MLK

    Well, as you note, the cat is out of the bag. I’ve seen various polls indicating that around 50% of all Americans think the election was rigged. Broken down by political identification, about 70% of Republicans, 50% of independents and up to 30% of Democrats think the election was a fraud. Consider those numbers for a moment — especially up to 30% of self-identified Democrats believe their party stole the Presidential election.

    If a Democrat, I would be glum too.

    Moreover, the Democratic gerontocracy faces an emerging and serious challenge from its radical left-wing, personified by AOC and The Squad, because of their appeasement in order to topple Trump. That appeasement is in the process of backfiring because of 1) their spurious and failed claim that Trump fanned insurrectionist flames when compared to their actual support for violent racially-motivated riots, and 2) several of Biden’s executive orders directly harm their numerically larger and far less radical base.

    No wonder H.R. 1 and S. 1 are at the top of their agenda.

    … the overwhelming majority of Americans [are] still stubbornly attached to the Rule of Law, free and fair elections, and that consent of the governed thingie. — MLK

    One of the keys to unlocking the political chains forged by the privately-owned political parties is that consent of the governed thingie.

    No one should equate protesting being systematically mistreated with attempting to prevent a legitimate certification of the vote, albeit even by the bizarre electoral college. Bizarre in the sense that it deliberately undermines the democracy we claim to stand for. These are false equivalencies and only someone deliberately distanced from the events of the two months following the election, the BS flowing out of the orange sloth’s mouth and his selection of the January 6th as the day to invade the Capital building can conclude otherwise. Trump is a conman that deliberately attempted to intimidate a Georgian Republican official into rigging the election, so stupid as to be on tape doing that. Yet so dishonest that he insists its the Democrats who are cheating without ever providing providing proof that would reverse any outcome. Compare this behavior to the crooked Bushes that used Kathleen Harris to purge voters illegally, then sent a planeload of Republican goons to swarm the Dade County election board and prevent any legitimate recount, then got SCOTUS to install George, our worst President ever, who still lost to Gore in a tight race, and probably lost to Kerry in 2004, but for more Republican cheating in Ohio.

    Like almost every country, Sweden’s economy is a mix of socialist and capitalist policies. I lived there, so I know that it is much more socialist than the USA, which is a good thing for its citizens. Everyone is eligible for a free education and free health care. Every student is fed lunch free in school, saving parents a lot of work. Its low birth rate, a function of excellent education offered to women, is offset by paid leave totaling 480 days for every child born (240 days each for father and mother). I am also aware that it has been influenced over that last forty years by deeply flawed neo-liberal thinking which led the world to the second great depression in 2008, with underlying reasons identical the first great depression.

    Even the USA began with many excellent socialist programs in mind, which the ruling class is determined to undermine and privatize. These include the postal service, public roads, schools, libraries, systems for sharing the natural monopolies of water, sewer and utilities. the military and space program. The New Deal improved every working, man’s life with social security, worker’s compensation, and unemployment insurance. More recently Welfare, Medicare and Medicaid were developed. Now, everything is under attack, workers have been losing to the ruling class for most of the last forty years..

    Trump was fundamentally a victim of Obama-AIPAC Schizophrenia. This is a mental disease which has inflicted large numbers of Jews in the last 12 years and ending up taking its rage out on Trump. For at least half a century there has been an ongoing implicit tension running with the psyche of the US Jewish population. Do they consider themselves social justice warriors or Israel-firsters? Many US Jews like to play up to one or the other at varying times without coming down too hard against either. Yet a tension has been building there a long time.

    This tension was not so important in earlier times when the Israel lobby was much weaker and the question of civil rights for blacks was more of a real issue. At that time it was very easy for a Jew in the USA to simply maintain that they support the struggles of blacks and hope to see Israel prosper. But as the Civil Rights Movement began to fade into history, and the Israel lobby itself became much more blatantly powerful, cracks started to appear. Those cracks burst during Barack Obama’s administration.

    Obama came into office at a time when the Israel lobby was screeching for war on Iran. Neocons supported John McCain with the assumption that McCain would have attacked Iran the way that Bush did Iraq. The single greatest foreign policy issue of Obama’s time in office was his clear defiance of the Israel lobby on this. No President since JFK had had such a sharp conflict with the Israel lobby.

    To avoid the complications which JFK encountered in Dallas, Obama learned to play a game which a black politician could get away with. As his tensions with Netanyahu grew, he increasingly resorted to presenting himself as the one who was heroically standing up to white racism. This as public relations maneuver caught many Jews off guard. If Obama had simply tried quoting arguments from John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt he would have been lambasted as an anti-Semite. But by casting himself as a poor little black boy facing the evil white supremacists he left most Jews tongue-tied.

    What should be kept in mind is that the incoherence displayed by many Jews in this context really does reflect actual mental confusion. It is not simply the enactment of a well-calibrated plan worked out by the Learned Elders of Zion in the late 19th century. Many Jews were honestly mentally flustered to see the conflicts between Obama and Netanyahu. They had expected that the election of the first black President would be a time for them to going singing in the streets “Blacks and Jews shall overcome!” The fact that Obama’s Presidency was perpetually overshadowed by conflict with the Likudniki was really mentally stressful to a lot of these deluded fools.

    When Trump took office all he really wanted to accomplish was to work things out with Netanyaha it had been before. I refused to vote for Trump in 2016 because I seriously thought that he was planning to initiate a war on Iran. I still think that he very likely contemplated that as an eventual end. But Trump was smart enough to first get smell the environment before doing anything halfcocked. It was from here that unexpected twists started to unfold.

    Many Jews after Obama’s term really did not want a white male Republican who kissed Netanyahu’s buttocks. This would have for them represented the ultimate showing how after so anxiously indulging themselves in SJW-thought about how great it is to have a black Democrat as President, they would suddenly be forced to acknowledge that the white Republican was really better for Israel. They did not want to have to make such an admission. What they really craved was a raving mad white supremacist who talks about making soap and lampshades out of Jews. If they had gotten this then they could have psychologically relieved their own internal stress by reciting “Of course there were some problems between Obama and Netanyahu but you see how blacks and Jews always end up on the same side against white supremacism!” Trump maliciously denied them this comforting Linus blanket. They hated him for that.

    Trump seems to have been genuinely shocked by all of this. In the face of it he was forced to look again at who had really voted for him and what did they want or not want. In the face of all of this Trump apparently abandoned whatever plans for an attack upon Iran which he may have had originally. Trump never actually became a “friend” of the working man in any sense and this accounts for why his last minute acquittals were dedicated towards letting some black and Jewish crooks and spies off the hook rather then doing anything which would have benefitted the people who voted for him. But he at least did not reverse the earlier Obama-decision to cancel neocon plans for an attack on Iran.

    Exactly right. The current Congress, as well as the legislatures of most states, are a result of the control of elections. In Virginia, the northern counties (DC suburbs) decided all the statewide elections while the rest of the state still had somewhat different election results by party for district races.

    While the more rural legislators differed by party from those elected statewide where the vote fraud was more manageable, in 2018 that same fraud managed a “sweep” of the legislature resulting in overthrow of the legislature to the same kind of candidates who had historically won only in the DC ‘burbs and the cities.

    Without vote fraud there would be no such numerical advantage in state legislatures of uniparty preferred office holders. Even where the actual party counts favored the democrats, the republican winners were almost all uniparty types. That also holds true for republican majorities.

    No matter who the voters choose, the uniparty is the only winner. As Clyde Wilson once wrote, even if voting itself may not be evil, it’s still an act of cluelessness, like chewing gum.

    Andrew Anglin of Daily Stormer fame drives groups like the Anti-defamation League (ADL) and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) crazy because he simply ignores their lawsuits against him.

    Recently, a carefully chosen judge ruled against Anglin and awarded a \$14 milllion judgement (yes, fourteen million bucks) to someone Anglin verbally had offended after a trial that Anglin had never even shown up for. He didn’t make an appearance because he probably knew that if he had shown up to defend himself in this lawsuit he would have been potentially arrested for a variety of his other “hate speech” infractions and at a minimum had his passport seized (which he undoubtedly knew was the original intent of the lawsuit in the first place).

    https://www.al.com/news/2020/12/neo-nazi-website-founder-accused-of-ignoring-14m-judgment.html

    Andrew Anglin is able to survive only because he is able to to get donations in anonymous and unstoppable bitcoins. All other funding avenues have been cut off to him . When I mean all other avenues have been cut off I am serious. Since he seems to have no permanent address, theoretically he can’t even receive donations in currency or checks.

    It might be time for UNZers to pick up a few bitcoins themselves to guarantee their own futures so that, if things go totally awry here and they decide to leave, they might have a way to survive outside the country Forget gold or currency as safe haven. Once the inevitable and stricter financial controls come into play against “whiteys” they will most certainly won’t even be allowed to cross out over any American border legally with any appreciable amount of either (i.e. nothing over probably \$10K) .

    And if you think your funds will somehow be safe once you somehow get them outside the US and into a seemingly safe foreign bank with no US presence, think again. During his presidency Obama put in place reporting controls on non US foreign banks holding American individual account that are so onerous and far reaching that these banks will no longer even allow American individuals to have accounts in them. Even the perpetually greedy Swiss are now very reluctant to permit the opening of individual accounts by Americans. If these foreign banks were foolish enough to ignore these US reporting requirements they would potentially be open worldwide US sanctions on them which would be deadly.

    As a result of this reluctance on the part of these foreign based banks, Americans living abroad will be forced to use accounts in the foreign branches of American banks (Chase, Bank of America et al) or in foreign banks with a US presences (BNP Paribas et al) which come under US banking laws and are, defacto, open to US pressure to freeze individual accounts outside the US with just the pushing of a button.

    Bitcoins however are a totally different alternative. They are lighter than the lightest feather and are not inflatable At least research them.

    Thanks for your response.

    At that point people that still unquestioningly comply are doing so in a basically deliberate way. Intellectually they’re still in chaos, but emotionally they’re settling down in their decision to join this new religion.

    I think it’s more a matter of cowardly resignation on the part of a lot of them. But, fair enough. It’s clear we’re both responding to the same thing. We just have different takes on it. And I think you’re right to characterize it as a new religion, with all that that implies.

    I sure hope more people will resist the program. But so far even the people I know who are skeptical or who agree the whole thing is a scam still shrug and comply in order to go along to get along.

    Yes, that’s been my experience too. But my basic point is that, it’s always been that way. Those who part from the herd have always been small in number and probably always will. But more do follow once that’s happened. And, again, I agree, I too sure hope more people will resist the program.

    But as history proves that if enough people obey they can impose totalitarian social control and physical terror upon populations, for as long as this structure exists until it collapses on account of economic and ecological factors.

    Well that was most definitely the point I was making in the previous comment. For this reason I think one course of action would be inaction, ie; to simply get out of their way, to not engage them.

    Not for a moment do I underestimate their destructive power. But I can’t help but remain unimpressed and am convinced the best they’ll ever manage is a Pyrrhic Victory.

    Once again, spare us (OK, me) the croc tears for Hamas and Fatah. Fuck them (too).

    Trump made a major mistake by not somehow authorizing an official, independent special prosecutor to examine election fraud.

    Now it’s too late.

    No one will have the requisite subpoena power to do an investigation.

    While a few civil rights leaders have resorted to violence, the most popular and successful one, Martin Luther King worked diligently to keep protests peaceful. It is a long established fact that the FBI and other Government organizations that sought to discredit MLK, used paid right wing saboteurs to incite violence and discredit King.

    King sought to broaden his war against segregation to a war against all poverty and unnecessary war. For this lofty goal he was assassinated by the most evil authoritarian, un-elected Government bureaucrats our country has ever been burdened with. People like K Edgar Hoover, who believed King was a communist sex fiend and threat to our national security. These horrible authorities had King executed by organized crime.

    Most people today recognize King for what he actually was, a brave honest crusader for equal human rights for all people, regardless of gender, race or political persuasion, who understood that to win public support for that cause peaceful protesting was essential.

    Ponder that you numbskull.

    The biggest cheaters in national elections have been Republicans. Their brazen illegal voter caging and purging programs have been coupled with gerrymandering and the bizarre electoral college to bring the country the two worst Presidents in our lifetimes. What makes BushII and Trump so terrible? They made the lives of hundreds of millions of people markedly worse without providing any benefit to the citizens they were elected to represent. But, with the exception of Carter, Democrat Presidents were not much better. Eisenhower warned the country not to go down the path of perpetual war, by pointing out that doing so deprived our own citizens of the best life that a good education offers.

    Our military forces have spread pain, destruction and suffering all over the planet, winning every battle and losing every war. So many lives wasted. So much infrastructure completely destroyed. So much forced migration triggered by lost wars and planned military coups intended to overthrow democratically elected leaders around the world.

    The USA has used its overwhelming military force in one failed attempt after another to force everyone in the world to think and live like us. But it hasn’t worked. If it did work the civilized life on earth we enjoy would surely eventually self destruct, from loss of natural resources, pollution and global warming..

  261. Thank u very much sir, 4 a most interesting, truthful, “hit the nail, smack on the head”,
    assessment of the “state of the union” which also spoke mightily of many of the reasons why
    we left the country, & will never return. And it has gotten even worse with the latest nonsense attack on the 2nd Amendment. From this point of view it surely looks as if it’s going 2 get even worse, on top of shutting down Keystone…how short sighted is that? Paul Craig Roberts and I have mutually agreed that “usa is certainly no longer the country we were raised in!” And it gets worse & worse each & every day, almost 2 the point of serious heart ache & disgust, particularly when compared 2 life in S.E. Asia, which in some ways is just almost unbelieveably incredible & delightful. Expat tom

    How do you figure his support is greater now than when he was President? Before he left office his approval was 49%. Now it’s 40% and dropping.
    You guys can grasp at straws all you want but Trump will go down as the worst President in US history.
    Come back in a year and tell me how popular his is after all his dirty laundry gets exposed.

    I refused to vote for Trump in 2016 because I was certain he would go to war against Iran. When I voted for him in 2020 it was really just a way of saying “no” to Antifa and Black Lies Matter. I can readily believe that Trump has some dirty laundry lying somewhere in the background that might be exposed. The only thing that makes me doubt much will be heard on this is that most of it would involve too many Jewish connections for the media to want to expose. But really, do you honestly think that there isn’t an ample body of similar stuff with the Bidens, Clintons, Obamas et al? Very few people who cast a vote for Trump are going to be distressed over the knowledge that he has some dirty laundry. It’s more like “yeah, he’s a shitter, but a few times there he went shitting in the right direction!”

  264. Those that seek to deny what Mr Whitney has plainly pointed out are the delusional ones.
    Unfortunately you can’t just rewrite reality no matter how hard little jack dorsey and his band of silicon valley wax boys try to suppress it. President Trump has millions and millions of followers who are sick of the global oligarchs and those of you that are too incredibly stupid to see what’s happening to your country. Hope you can hire better security for your gated community when Biden’s illegals get done crashing our border or that you can buy your children’s way out of serving in the next illegitimate war the neocons contrive for us.

    What a meandering mess of misconstrued conceptions. To single out the Republican face of the Bank\$ter controlled political duopoly is silliness unlimited. Both peas in the pod parties are under full operative control by their RNC and DNC politburos, taking orders from select minions of the Rottenfellers and the Rottenchids. They absolutely do NOT represent we the people or even their massively deluded ardent partisan supporters.

    This was clearly evidenced in the current (S)election where Bernie was sweeping the primaries until the word went out to the Black leadership of the South Carolina Democrats. After Biden’s nearly solo victory in that old bastion of slavery, the corporate pre\$\$ jumped on the bandwagon and before you knew it, Sleepy Joe, the demented near-octogenarian was the nominee.

    Even Dubya, as bad as he was (911 In\$ide Job and aggression against two innocent countries) were not quite as damaging as the blackmailed Thomas Woodrow Wilson, who cooperated perfectly with his handlers Bernard Baruch and Felix Frankfurter, both agents of the highest levels of the Judeocracy, to drag the US into World War I. Even before that dire event, he signed off on the killer “Federal” Reserve Act and the Income Tax legislation. Wilson was absolutely the worst, but people who do not have a firm understanding of history have no knowledge of those matters.

    You do get it on the Warfare \$tate. It just happens that the ruling Bank\$ters’ biggest source of profits is their ownership of the WarDefense industry. Virtually every Congressional District in the land sports “defense” jobs. Jobs. Jobs. Jobs = votes, votes, votes. Americans have been deliberately miseducated into the job world, instead of being encouraged into becoming truly middle-class in the classical sense of owning their own means of livelihood. So its a 9-5 reality for the vast majority.

    It does appear that you have learned a few things along the line. Do not get discouraged when you catch it from one of us folks who’ve been around since shortly after the dinosaurs disappeared. This site does include some very learned and astute individuals from whom you can learn much. You might also wanna consider reading history. Much of the stuff on that key subject is minder binder garbage, so do what you can to ferret out some true history. For starters check out John Toland’s “Infamy”. It’s the story of what really happened to get us into World War II.

    I read Cathal Haughian’s trilogy on the Reset. Still available on Amazon! Lol. We had online discussions about it into July 2020 after the reset began. Cathal quit and shutdown his webpage in July. The rest of us who followed him continue to talk about it on a slack account. Cathal is into Crypto and still occasionally posts about the reset on tradingview.com. No, this is not about a virus. This is just the beginning though folks. The equities market crash is going to be epic!!!!! I hope everyone is preparing.

    The Great Reset needs a financial implosion. The bond market will freeze up and the solution in waiting is the Great Reset.

    Gore clearly won in 2000 but Republicans stole that election, if we lived in a Democracy Hillary would have won in 2016, Biden clearly won in 2020…

    Trump is a liar. You, of course are free to believe him if you want to. But no rational person should question the outcome, especially considering th3 fat that in about sixty Court cases Trump’s legal team lost. That’s because proof is required.

    As if Trump’s lying about rigging the election wasn’t bad enough, Trump proceeded to attempt to rig the election in Georgia, during which the entire conversation was recorded. Let’s hope that crime earns him an orange jump suit to match his orange hair and face.

    Is this the leading nation of the world or a gong show posing as freedom democracy and human rights. Trump versus Biden—–Larry is missing ???
