“..a single accounting reporting charge, a misdemeanor, was magically turned into 34 federal felonies of election violations..”

“..legally this is a case for which there are no legal grounds for bringing it..”

Tyranny Is Upon Us: Law And Juries Are Weaponized (Paul Craig Roberts)

Jury Finds Trump Guilty on All 34 Felony Charges in New York Trial. Keep in mind that these are 34 made-up felonies based on how an expense was recorded by accountants and attorneys. Trump did not record the expense.The expense was recorded according to accounting standards. Keep in mind that a single accounting reporting charge, a misdemeanor, was magically turned into 34 federal felonies of election violations, if memory serves, the argument being that Trump won the election by misreporting the expense. There are so many civil and criminal show trials going on against Trump that it is hard to keep track of all the absurdities. Keep in mind that it is a case without complainants, without harmed parties. It is a case brought by a prosecutor who can show no party harmed. What is frightening is that legally this is a case for which there are no legal grounds for bringing it. Yet, the bar associations, the law schools, the media said nothing.

Getting Trump was so important that law was sacrificed for the purpose. Trump’s demonization made a fair trial impossible, and few jurors can resist using their power against a rich person. The weaponization of law in order to interfere with an election –in other words the prosecutor is guilty of interfering in an election–the charge brought against Trump– means the future of America is tyranny. An appeal will be made, but a state where justice is as corrupt as New York is incapable of producing a decision based on law. If there is any fight left in Americans, and I am unsure, a prison sentence from the totally corrupt judge should launch a civil war. Many would say it is about time or past time. If not, the people have submitted to tyranny. The North submitted to Lincoln’s tyranny. The South did not. Little is left of the South. It is unclear what stands against the tyranny of Washington.

The constitutional law professor: “Even after sitting in the courtroom watching the trial and the verdict, I still have no idea what Trump was convicted of in the case..”

The Trump Trial Harkens Back to a Dark Period of American Law (Turley)

After years of trying — in the words of the judge — “to get the damned rascal in this court,” it was a conviction that many welcomed. But those words were not from Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan, and the conviction was not that of former President Donald Trump. Rather they were from US Supreme Court Justice Samuel Chase, at the end of the 18th century, when America embraced political prosecutions to target critics and opponents. The man on trial then was James T. Callender, a muckraking writer critical of President John Adams. For accusing politicians of corruption, Callender was charged with sedition, fined $200 and put in prison. It was one of the many political prosecutions carried out by the Adams administration. Political prosecutions are something most citizens associate with dictatorships. But the Trump prosecution has forced many to confront the undeniable reality of the politicization of our legal system. In many respects, President Biden and Democrats have re-created the Adams era.

Biden has led calls for censorship of political critics and his administration has coordinated the silencing and the blacklisting of those with opposing views. Democratic politicians have pressured social-media companies to serve as surrogates for the government in banning, throttling and defunding individuals and groups. Indeed, I have previously written that Biden is now the most anti-free-speech president since Adams. The Adams era also reflected the same blind loyalty of many media outlets. Federalist publications supported the crackdowns while echoing charges against political opponents as seditionists and insurrectionists. Jeffersonian publications, like Callender’s, attacked Adams for his “unbounded thirst for ridiculous pomp, foolish adulation, and selfish avarice.” The nation was divided down the middle as both sides accused each other of being traitors and insurrectionists. Sound familiar? Yet, it is the politicization of the legal system that is the most chilling return to the Adams era.

Even liberal legal analysts and figures have admitted that the case against Trump was unprecedented and would not have been brought against anyone other than Trump. CNN legal analyst Elie Honig recently wrote that there should be concern over a judge being appointed (not randomly selected) who is not just a Biden donor but someone who “has earmarked donations for ‘resisting the Republican Party and Donald Trump’s radical right-wing legacy.’” Adding to these concerns is the movement of the third-highest official in the Biden Justice Department to the staff of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to build the case against Trump. Before joining the case, Matthew Colangelo was also paid by the Democratic National Committee for “political consulting.” So Trump was convicted in a trial with a Biden donor judge, who has a daughter who is a major Democratic operative, a lead prosecutor previously paid as a DNC political consultant and a jury selected in a district that voted roughly 90% against Trump.

The trial itself was a travesty. Even after sitting in the courtroom watching the trial and the verdict, I still have no idea what Trump was convicted of in the case. The charges were built on a dead misdemeanor barred with the passage of the statute of limitations. It was zapped back into life by alleging that the falsification of business records occurred to unlawfully influence the 2016 presidential election. Merchan told the jury members that they did not have to agree on what those unlawful means may have been. Specifically, he allowed them to base their verdict on any one of three vaguely defined crimes of a federal election violation, falsification of business records or taxation violations.

The Democrats Just Sealed Donald Trump’s Victory In November (Bridge)

Members of the Democratic Party continue to fail to understand that the more mud they fling at the former president, the dirtier they look by comparison. On Thursday, a unanimous decision from a 12-person jury declared Donald Trump guilty on 34 felony counts, which could see the former president sentenced to 136 years in prison. There’s just one catch: the notorious Orange Man will never spend a single night behind bars. The worst that will happen for the Republican presidential frontrunner is that he will enter the race with a criminal record. Because the crimes are nonviolent and Trump has no prior convictions, any chance of prison time is a long shot. What could happen instead is that Judge Juan Merchan could sentence him to house arrest – which would undoubtedly make ankle bracelets, much like the famous Trump ‘mug shot,’ the latest fashion accessory – probation or some other lighter form of supervised release.

Another option that would backfire in the Democratic Party’s face is the imposition of community service. While Democrats may relish the idea of Trump being forced to join a prison work gang as punishment, it’s too easy to imagine millions of Trump supporters turning out at some soup kitchen or animal shelter to throw their support behind the most controversial figure in American politics today. And then there is the question of New York, the site of the Trump case, which is only second to the state of California when it comes to liberal residents. Trump inveighed against District Attorney Alvin Bragg, calling him the “Soros-backed DA.” As The New York Times wrote of the Bragg-Soros connection, “Soros donated to a liberal group that endorses progressive prosecutors and supports efforts to overhaul the criminal justice system – in line with causes that he has publicly supported for years. That group used a significant portion of the money to support Mr. Bragg in his 2021 campaign.”

On November 21, 2022, The Times reported that the district attorney’s office “has moved to jump-start its criminal investigation” into Trump’s reported “hush-money payment to a porn star who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump.” This was the first indictment of a former president in US history. Trump pleaded not guilty, yet was found guilty of all counts on May 30, 2024, making Bragg the first prosecutor in US history to win a conviction against a former president. Trump, who will be sentenced on July 11th, denies ever having had sex with Daniels. Another aspect of the Trump case that has rallied many to Trump’s defense is the political identity of the judge presiding over the case, Juan Merchan, whom Trump has criticized as “conflicted.” That may be an understatement when it is considered that Merchan donates to an organization called ‘Stop Republicans,’ as well as the Biden campaign.

Finally, Trump posted on his Truth Social platform that Loren Merchan, the judge’s daughter, is president of Authentic Campaigns, a Chicago-based progressive political consulting firm whose top clients include Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who was the lead prosecutor in Trump’s first impeachment trial. Merchan’s daughter helped raise at least $93 million in campaign donations – and used the Trump case in her solicitation emails – highlighting a major conflict of interest that have Trump supporters demanding Judge Merchan recuse himself from the case. Finally, there is the question of fairness when it is considered that New York is major Democrat country. Can Trump seriously hope for a fair trial to take place in this prominent Blue state? He certainly doesn’t think so.

Merchan imposed the 10th contempt of court fine of $1,000 for an April 22 interview in which the former president said: “That jury was picked so fast – 95% Democrats. The area’s mostly all Democrat.” While the Democrats may be rubbing their hands in glee after finally getting Trump entangled in the judicial net, they continue to ignore the fact that every scandal has only served to empower the 45th president. In the worst-case scenario, should Trump be sent to prison, this will not stop the flow of campaign cash from entering the GOP’s coffers; in fact, it is practically guaranteed that the spectacle of the Orange Man behind bars – complete with mug shot in prison garb – will be the best campaign promo of all time. The only thing better than that would be to witness the first president in US history to pardon himself as the Trump legacy goes full circle.

Anything can be deepfake, and now you can’t hear any of it anymore. Unless it’s about Trump.

DOJ: You Can’t Hear The Biden-Hur ‘Memory Interview’ Because of Deepfakes (Sp.)

The US Department of Justice (DOJ) is attempting to prevent the release of the audio of the infamous “memory interview” between US President Joe Biden and special counsel Robert Hur, arguing that “deepfakes” may appear as a result. Hur was investigating Biden’s handling of classified documents he obtained as a senator and vice president. While Hur wrote in his report that Biden likely violated the law intentionally, he declined to press charges because he thought Biden would appear to the jury as a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.” It also noted that Biden had trouble remembering when he was vice president and which year his son Beau died. The DOJ issued a filing on Friday that argued “The passage of time and advancements in audio, artificial intelligence, and ‘deep fake’ technologies only amplify concerns about malicious manipulation of audio files. If the audio recording is released here, it is easy to foresee that it could be improperly altered, and that the altered file could be passed off as an authentic recording and widely distributed.”

While the DOJ admits that there is plenty of “other raw material to create a deepfake of President Biden’s voice” available to unscrupulous actors, it argues that if the public became aware that the legitimate recording was released, they would be more apt to believe a fake recording is legitimate. The filing was first obtained by Politico. It is not known how the court will respond to the strange reasoning. If a legitimate copy of the recording were released, it stands to reason it would become easier –not more difficult– to disprove fake versions. As the DOJ admits in its filing as part of its argument that the release of the audio recording is unnecessary, the full transcript of the interview has already been released. It would be trivial for someone with AI experience to use the “raw material” already available of Biden to create a deepfake version of the interview and say it was leaked. A legitimate version being released would make that much easier for other internet users and the media to definitively debunk.

The filing also comes after Biden used his executive privilege to stop the release of the tape to House Republicans who had sought to obtain it as part of their investigation into the Biden family. The latest filing was in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. The DOJ also argues that the release of the audio would be a violation of Biden’s privacy. However, since we already know what he said thanks to the transcript– and we have no reason to believe that the transcript is incorrect, the only thing that would be revealed is everything between those words. How long did Biden pause before answering? How many times did he stumble on his words? Did he sound confused or angry during the interview? These are the questions that could be revealed through the release of the audio and according to the filing, the DOJ doesn’t think it is in the “public interest” to reveal the answers, so much so that they are willing to resort to absurd fear-mongering over a new technology in hopes that the judge will be cowed into blocking its release.

I split Ben Sellers’ piece in two. First, reality.

Desperate, Lying Biden May Abuse AI to Pull the Ultimate Race Hoax (Sellers)

It is patently clear that 99% of what comes out of Biden’s mouth, and those of his surrogates is an abject, gaslighting falsehood. Many in the voting public have now woken up to this fact, which is why we’ve seen so many red-pilled ex-Biden backers suddenly flipping their support to Trump in protest of all—or even some—of the above. Taking a page from Adolf Hitler, Democrats already primed people for the so-called Big Lie, deflecting from the fact that they were in the process of committing it by, appropriately enough, projecting it preemptively onto Republicans Regrettably, we may now be on the cusp of what history will record as the “Biggest Lie,” if and when the truth ever comes to light—something so shamefully bald-faced, so transparently manipulative, that most will think, “They wouldn’t dare lie about that.” But indeed, Biden has proven nothing if not that he will lie about anything.

We are witnessing the remarkable confluence of several disparate factors that are leading us on the path to the biggest race hoax in recorded history—and yet, it seems obvious, like a black swan event, that something so dastardly would be the inevitable outcome of putting the declining Democrat ethos and the rise in artificial intelligence-generated disinformation together in a tinderbox that includes the bombastic Donald Trump.On Thursday, a former producer from Trump’s ABC television show The Apprentice drudged up a long simmering rumor regarding tapes of Trump having used the n-word to refer to contestant Kwame Jackson. Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung called it a “a completely fabricated and bullsh*t story,” Politico reported. Many critics have pointed out that President Joe Biden’s own troubled history when it comes to making controversial remarks about race often undermines his current posturing about being a champion of minority causes.

Nonetheless, Biden’s campaign—after recently botching the rollout on an eight-figure effort to win back black voters—made hay of the Trump smear, releasing an official statement to torque up the race-baiting allegation. “No one is surprised that Donald Trump, who entered public life by falsely accusing [b]lack men of murder and entered political life spreading lies about the first [b]lack president, reportedly used the N-word to casually denigrate a successful [b]lack man,” claimed Jasmine Harris, the Biden campaign’s director of black media. The campaign also appeared to have been coordinating with Pruitt on the story, which he released in a Slate op-ed, as it had canned footage ready to roll out of former Trump staffer turned critic Omarosa Manigault Newman leveling unsubstantiated ‘racism’ claims against her ex-boss.

Second, AI.

“..a new low-water mark for America, as it faces a bombardment of structure tests from the radical Marxist subversives hoping to topple it for once and for all.”

Artificial ‘N****R’ (Sellers)

Lost in the Trump Manhattan trial about his alleged falsification of business documents to pay off porn star Stormy Daniels was the fact that the $130,000 paid to Daniels by Michael Cohen did not fulfill its contracted purpose. Prior to the November 2016 election, the Wall Street Journal published a story that named Daniels and Playboy bunny Karen McDougal, alleging the two had received hush-money payments to keep quiet about their decade-old affairs with Trump. Within two years, some of the key players in the purported scandal were speaking openly about it. Suffice it to say, if Pruitt had the evidence at the time to support his allegation about Trump using the n-word on The Apprentice, those tapes would have found their way into the hands of interested parties somewhere along the way long before Trump’s third presidential run.

It is reasonable to infer that the absence of the tapes up to this point suggests they don’t exist. Frighteningly, what does now exist is a rapid surge in artificial intelligence technology that could allow the Biden campaign to produce fake tapes of Trump using the pejorative, sowing just enough suspicion among his nascent black supporters that they would flock back to the fold on the Democrat plantation. Already, we have seen the technology put to frightening use to imitate Biden’s voice in a fake robocall that went out to New Hampshire voters, telling them to stay home since he wasn’t on the ballot, despite an expensive write-in campaign to deliver him a victory in the Granite State. The deep-fake was traced back to the owner of a telecom company in Texas, who had previously donated money to Sen. John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign.

The technology also has been misused to create pornography of high school students and to scam a company out of $25 million with a phony conference call. And oh yea, the CIA has admitted it is taking full advantage of it for undisclosed purposes. Most perniciously, it has already been used for at least one race hoax. A disgruntled high school athletic director in Baltimore was caught using deep-fake software to mimic the voice of his principal going on a racist and anti-Semitic rant in retaliation for a probe of his misappropriation of school funds. The rant appeared on Instagram and quickly began to circulate. Although AI was suspected almost immediately, Pikesville High School Eric Eiswert was subjected to negative publicity and an intensive forensic investigation that drew in the FBI and experts from the University of California, Berkeley, before he was ultimately vindicated.

The potential for AI abuse, paired with the Biden administration’s penchant and proclivity for it, would certainly lead one to wonder, should a tape of Trump using the “n-word” suddenly surface, whether its authenticity could be trusted. Would Biden, or another bad actor working on his behalf, be willing to stoop so low as to falsely smear someone with an entirely made-up tape in order to deceive and manipulate a particular class of voters into making a misinformed decision? Sadly, if past is prologue, one need no longer ask questions about the depths to which they will stoop. Will it work? If so, it would simultaneously be a breakthrough achievement in AI technology—the successful passage, perhaps, of a sort of Turing test on the road to singularity—and a new low-water mark for America, as it faces a bombardment of structure tests from the radical Marxist subversives hoping to topple it for once and for all.

“..authorizing Ukraine to strike targets deep in Russia. Using our weapons, trained in their use by our trainers..”

RFK Jr. Slams Biden’s Decision to Allow Ukrainian Strikes Inside Russia (Sp.)

US presidential candidate Robert Kennedy Jr. condemned President Joe Biden’s decision to greenlight Ukrainian strikes using US-supplied weapons inside Russian territory. “More insane escalation by the Biden administration — authorizing Ukraine to strike targets deep in Russia. Using our weapons, trained in their use by our trainers,” Kennedy said on X. In a major policy shift, Biden authorized the use of US weapons against military installations in Russia. A State Department spokesperson insisted that the authorization was limited to what they called “counter-fire purposes” in Kharkov (also known as Kharkiv) region. The US has not authorized the use of long-range missiles, including ATACMS, inside Russia, the spokesperson told Sputnik.

Drones. And the “turtle tank.”

Ukraine Conflict Is Reshaping War For the 21st Century (DeMartino)

The weapons that shaped warfare in the 20th century: barbed wire, machine guns, tanks, long-range artillery, and battleships, still play significant roles on the battlefield in the 21st, but they are dwarfed in importance by one invention, from which multiple theaters have been affected: the drone. While specific numbers of their effectiveness are difficult to come by at this stage of the conflict (that will be a job for war historians) there is no doubt that it is the most significant innovation on the battlefield today, used by both sides to inflict large amounts of casualties on the other. During Ukraine’s failed 2023 counteroffensive, drones played a huge role in stopping that advance. With the possible exception of Russia’s distance mining equipment, which also took out large numbers of tanks, drones were pivotal in taking out NATO’s most powerful armor.

“[US media] admitted how useless the Abrams [tank] is when tens of millions of dollars per tank can be taken out by a $500 drone. It is a new model of warfare,” Mark Sleboda, a security and international relations expert told Sputnik’s Fault Lines on Friday. “But it is an evolution of warfare that is occurring before our eyes. So, the Chinese and Americans are certainly paying very close attention,” he noted earlier in the interview. It is an opinion shared by former Marine and UN Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter. Speaking on the Danny Haiphong show, he explained how everything from tactics to logistics has been changed by drones. “When this war started, people were working off of Cold War-era doctrinal thinking. That is: you have tank columns, you have artillery that operates in battery or battalion sized formations flooding a zone, you have big arrow movements and things of that nature,” Ritter recalled. “[Then] drones started coming in, not just for targeting purposes, not just for deep strike purposes, but tactical drones on the battlefront. These FPV drones are a nightmare for soldiers.”

“If I tried to take Marines into combat using the tactics that I was taught,” Ritter continued “[With] two platoons online, basic fire etcetera, my base of fire would disappear because it’d be swarmed by FPV drones… then my Marines attacking would be hit by these drones and they’re all dead.” Much like Haig, this was a lesson that the Armed Forces of Ukraine failed to learn during their counteroffensive. Rabotino was intended to be the first minor step during that offensive that would lead to Tokmak which would serve as the staging ground for an assault on Melitopol. But as armor assault after armor assault was destroyed, it became apparent that the Ukrainians would never reach their goal. But, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky needed something to show his Western benefactors, so Rabotino became the goal. It took 71 days to capture the tiny village with a pre-war population of about 500 people, largely using the same tactics they began with. Ukraine lost dozens of expensive tanks and thousands of men capturing and then holding the village.

The Ukrainian offensive never went any further and in May, Russia recaptured the village. Just as the invention of the tank helped break the stalemate of the First World War, new technologies are emerging to counteract the drone and there it seems Russia has a decided advantage on that front. According to Military Watch Magazine, Russian electronic defenses have rendered Ukraine’s best artillery weapons all but useless, including the Excalibur GPS-guided artillery shells, the vaunted HIMARS rocket artillery systems and the JDAM precision-guided bombs. “Everything ended [in 2023]: the Russian deployed electronic warfare, disabled satellite signals, and HIMARS became completely ineffective,” one senior Ukrainian military official was quoted as saying. But the innovations on the battlefield aren’t exclusive to high technology, often they come from the soldiers on the ground. As tanks were increasingly taken out by drones, soldiers started adding cope cages in an attempt to protect them. This eventually led to the deployment of what is affectionately called the “turtle tank.”

Typically beginning with a T-72 tank, so-called turtle tanks are outfitted with a metal shell that covers almost the entirety of the tank, leaving only the very front and its cannon exposed to drone attack. While limiting the driver in visibility and maneuverability, those drawbacks have proven worth it. The Ukrainians who initially laughed at the turtle tank’s awkward appearance and low-tech solution quickly stopped laughing as they retreated from turtle tank assaults across the Western front.

The Popski Syndrome – Allied Defeat Turns Into Battlefield Fantasies (Helmer)

In war, exaggeration is a killer. In the media, exaggeration is a bestseller. In the current war there is a dearth of military and political analysts who for truth or money will tell the difference. Instead, when the mentality of the war fighters is a combination of racial superiority and spetsnaz derring-do, what you get is the conviction that with one more brilliant operation and one more super-weapon, victory can be snatched from every indicator of defeat because the adversary will be persuaded to accept negotiations as he loses his nerve. This is the meaning of the Anglo-American publicity which burst over the long Bank Holiday and Memorial Day weekend, as summer campaigning began in earnest for the July and November elections in the UK and US — with the incumbent in the former running 21 points behind, and the incumbent in the latter trailing on an approval margin of minus-16 points.

The Reuters propaganda agency, based in New York, is claiming to have found four Russians from “a senior level in the political and business worlds” to be talkative about what they say they know of the Kremlin’s end-of-war plans. “[President Vladimir] Putin can fight for as long as it takes, but Putin is also ready for a ceasefire – to freeze the war… Putin would, however, be ready to settle for what land he has now and freeze the conflict at the current front lines, four of the sources said. ‘Putin will say that we won, that NATO attacked us and we kept our sovereignty, that we have a land corridor to Crimea, which is true,’ one of them said, giving their own analysis.” With just one more successful push from the Ukrainian side, Reuters and its four Russians believe, Putin will agree to give up his war. This push, which the western media have been amplifying this week, is the drone attacks on Russian radar stations for early warning of nuclear missile attack at Armavir, Krasnodar, and Orsk, Orenburg.

Although Russian military sources claim these attacks were pinpricks, and the second of them was shot out of the sky before detonation, western media are reporting that it is now the battle strategy of the US, the British, and the Ukrainians to provoke Putin into retaliation, crossing the red line of tactical nuclear warfare. That’s a red line, the allies are calculating, which Putin would rather negotiate end-of-war terms than cross. A retired Moscow military analyst warns against the exaggeration, not of the attacks themselves, but of Putin’s power to decide end-of-war terms over the opposition of the General Staff and the new Defense Ministry. “It is obvious the Ukrainians have had a string of successful breakthroughs,” the source acknowledges, “– against ships, airfields, refineries, and now this radar site. We also understand it is not the Ukrainians: all target selection, identification, guidance, and the hardware are American or European. Where the command control of these launch sites is, we do not know but it might well not be in Ukraine.”

“But the Russian response will not be nuclear. That is impossible. There are a thousand options between doing nothing and going nuclear, and we can be sure the General Staff are working on all of them. So when people say this is provocation for a nuclear strike and that [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelensky is provoking it, we understand that, first, NATO planners know Putin will not go nuclear because he and his generals are too rational and sane. And second, Zelensky is not the one making the provocations. So the real red line now is not the nuclear arms provocations from the NATO side. That’s a fantasy of theirs. Just so, in response, I think it’s time Putin stops making threats and strikes at the source of these operations.” When desperate weakness triggers battlefield fantasies, call this the Popski Syndrome.

Popski was the call sign and unit nickname assigned by the British Army headquarters in Cairo to a tiny unit of behind-the-lines special forces operating against the Italian and German armies in the Libyan deserts from late in 1941 until September 1943, when the war moved on to Italy, taking Popski with it. Popski’s unit numbered 24 men to start in Libya; in Italy, by the war’s end, it had reached 80. Vladimir Peniakoff was Popski, born to wealthy Jewish Russians who fled the Revolution to install their aluminium business and themselves in Belgium, then the UK. With London publisher Jonathan Cape, Peniakoff imagined he could turn his small guerrilla war in the Libyan and Tunisian deserts into something approaching the bestsellerdom of the Seven Pillars of Wisdom, T.E.Lawrence’s story of the war of the Arabian peninsula tribes against the Turks between 1916 and 1918; first published in 1926.

A timeline.

Presidents Who Gamble With Nuclear Armageddon (Jeffrey Sachs)

The Doomsday Clock was at 17 minutes to midnight when Clinton came to office, but just 9 minutes when he left it. Bush pushed the clock to just 5 minutes, Obama to 3 minutes, and Trump to a mere 100 seconds. Now Biden has taken the clock to 90 seconds. Most presidents, and most Americans, have little idea how close to the abyss we are. The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, which was founded in 1947 in part to help the world avoid nuclear annihilation, established the Doomsday Clock to help the public understand the gravity of the risks we face. National security experts adjust the clock depending how far or how close we are to “midnight,” meaning extinction. They put the clock today at just 90 seconds to midnight, the closest that it’s ever been in the nuclear age.

The clock is a useful measure of which presidents have “gotten it” and which have not. The sad fact is that most presidents have recklessly gambled with our survival in the name of national honor, or to prove their personal toughness, or to avoid political attacks from the warmongers, or as the result of sheer incompetence. By a simple and straightforward count, five presidents have gotten it right, moving the clock away from midnight, while nine have moved us closer to Armageddon, including the most recent five. Truman was president when the Doomsday Clock was unveiled in 1947, at 7 minutes to midnight. Truman stoked the nuclear arms race and left office with the clock at just 3 minutes to midnight. Eisenhower continued the nuclear arms race but also entered into the first-ever negotiations with the Soviet Union regarding nuclear disarmament. By the time he left office, the clock was put back to 7 minutes to midnight.

Kennedy saved the world by coolly reasoning his way through the Cuban Missile Crisis, rather than following the advice of hothead advisors who called for war (for a detailed account, see Martin Sherwin’s magisterial Gambling with Armageddon, 2020). He then negotiated the Partial Nuclear Test Ban Treaty with Khrushchev in 1963. By the time of his death, which may well have been a government coup resulting from Kennedy’s peace initiative, JFK had pushed the clock back to 12 minutes to midnight, a magnificent and historic achievement. It was not to last. Lyndon Johnson soon escalated in Vietnam and pushed the clock back again to just 7 minutes to midnight. Richard Nixon eased tensions with both the Soviet Union and China, and concluded the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty (SALT I), pushing the clock again to 12 minutes from midnight. Yet Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter failed to secure SALT II, and Carter fatefully and unwisely gave a green light to the CIA in 1979 to destabilize Afghanistan. By the time Ronald Reagan took office, the clock was at just 4 minutes to midnight.

The next 12 years marked the end of the Cold War. Much of the credit is due to Mikhail Gorbachev, who aimed to reform the Soviet Union politically and economically, and to end the confrontation with the West. Yet credit is also due to Reagan and his successor George Bush, Sr., who successfully worked with Gorbachev to end the Cold War, which in turn was followed by the end of the Soviet Union itself in December 1991. By the time Bush left office, the Doomsday clock was at 17 minutes to midnight, the safest since the start of the nuclear age.

Russia’s Victory Over Ukraine Is Drawing Near (Scott Ritter)

By the time the counteroffensive ground to a halt, in December 2023, Ukraine was a spent force militarily. Its armed forces had used up their reserves of manpower. NATO had depleted its stocks of available military materiel. And the West had become politically exhausted at the prospect of a never-ending conflict which seemed destined to result in an endless cycle of throwing good money after bad, all the while failing to bring about the strategic goal of defeating Russia. Moscow, on the other hand, emerged from the 2023 Ukrainian counteroffensive in a good position. From a military perspective, the Russians had won the war of attrition with Ukraine and the collective West – basic military math had Ukraine consuming manpower and material resources at a far greater rate than they could be replenished, making Kiev grow physically weaker every day the conflict dragged on, while the Russians were able to accumulate manpower and material resources at a rate far greater than Ukraine was able to destroy, meaning Russia grew stronger every day te conflict continued.

Economically, Ukraine and its Western backers were exhausted. The blowback from the aggressive anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the West had severely curtailed the industrial capacity of the European members of the NATO alliance to sustain the scope and scale of its military support to Ukraine, while domestic political realities in the US, amplified by the fact that it was engaged in a hotly contested presidential election cycle, paralyzed the American ability to sustain Ukraine financially. The military and economic exhaustion of Ukraine and the collective West severely impacted the ability of this coalition to politically sustain support for a war that had no discernable prospect of ending well. While the conflict has not, by any stretch of the imagination, been without cost to Russia, the approach taken by the leadership, to create conditions on the battlefield designed to maximize enemy losses while minimizing their own, meant that Moscow entered 2024 in a much stronger position militarily, economically, and – perhaps most importantly – politically.

War, it has been said, is an extension of politics by other means, and this is no exception to the age-old adage. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s latest electoral victory has provided the leadership in Moscow with a political mandate that strengthens Russia’s hand considerably, especially contrasted with the weakened posture of Ukraine. It is within such a context that the Russian offensive north of Kharkov must be evaluated. From a military-political standpoint, the operation has a specific objective – to push Ukrainian forces back from the border with Russia so that Ukrainian artillery and rocket systems can no longer strike Russian territory. But there is a larger purpose for this offensive – to continue the process of grinding down the Ukrainian military, to complete the larger task of ”demilitarization” set by the Kremlin.

In this, Russia is succeeding. First and foremost, by attacking north of Kharkov, Moscow has compelled UKiev to commit not only the last of its mobile strategic reserves in response but, because these forces are inadequate in strength, to force Ukraine to strip away units on the eastern line of contact, in Kherson, Zaporozhye and Donbass, and to divert them to the Kharkov direction. The depletion of reserves is part and parcel of the overall Russian strategy of attrition. Moreover, as these forces displace to the Kharkov region, they are being interdicted by Russian air, missile, and drone strikes, further eroding their combat power. The result is that Ukraine is now defending a longer line of defense with even fewer forces than it started with.

“They’re already selling off lands in Ukraine to foreign investors, and they will flood Ukraine with third-world immigrants and Ukraine will not exist in 50 years..”

Ukraine Won’t Exist In 50 Years – Tucker Carlson (RT)

The US has “betrayed” Ukraine and will destroy the country by selling off its land and “flooding” it with third-world immigrants, American journalist Tucker Carlson predicted in an interview with former President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Jr. In a video interview published on Friday, Carlson and Trump Jr. both agreed that US President Joe Biden had brought the world to the brink of World War III, and that the US is essentially “at war with Russia.” “No-one’s articulated what victory in Ukraine looks like,” Trump Jr. said. “I don’t know what it means. Is it just like perpetual death of Ukrainians and Russians until they’re all wiped out and Blackrock comes in there and takes over all the farmland? That’s what it feels like to me.” Blackrock is the world’s biggest investment company, and controls an estimated $10 trillion in assets. The firm is one of Ukraine’s largest foreign bondholders, and in 2022 signed a memorandum of understanding with Kiev stating that it would manage Ukraine’s post-conflict reconstruction.

Several BlackRock alumni serve in the Biden administration, including Brian Deese, the head of the National Economic Council. After Ukrainian leader Vladimir Zelensky signed a controversial package of land reforms into law in 2020, foreign investment firms like NCH Capital, BNP, and the Vanguard Group now control around 28% of Ukraine’s arable land, according to research by the Oakland Institute, an American think tank. Zelensky’s reforms were backed by the International Monetary Fund and US Agency for International Development. “They’re already selling off lands in Ukraine to foreign investors, and they will flood Ukraine with third-world immigrants and Ukraine will not exist in 50 years,” Carlson stated. “There’ll be no Ukrainian nation. We betrayed them like no other country ever.”

Former President Donald Trump has repeatedly promised that he would end the Ukraine conflict “in 24 hours” if re-elected this November, telling a Libertarian Party conference last weekend that he intends to “quit spending hundreds of billions of dollars to fight other people’s wars.” Trump has never fully elaborated on how he would do this, save for forcing Zelensky to negotiate with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but recent reports by Bloomberg and the Washington Post suggest that he would leverage the US’ massive military assistance to Kiev to pressure Zelensky into accepting the loss of some of Ukraine’s pre-conflict territory. However, Trump’s rhetoric on Russia has toughened in recent months, with the former president telling donors last week that he “would have bombed” Moscow when Russia’s military operation began in 2022. Trump did not lobby his Congressional allies to block a $61 billion aid package for Kiev in April, and said at the time that he would support lending, rather than gifting, money to Zelensky in future.

“..you ate up every piece of propaganda, repeated all of it without any thought to whether it was true or not..”

Dave Smith Burns Chris Cuomo To The Ground In Epic Covid Debate (ZH)

For the legions of us who still carry righteous rage about the tyrannical and destructive Covid-19 regime, the planets aligned on Friday and gave us the enormous, vicarious pleasure of watching one of libertarianism’s most articulate voices repeatedly pummel one of the most visible villains of that dark era. In a debate hosted by Patrick Bet-David of PBD Podcast fame, “Part of the Problem” podcaster and comedian Dave Smith took on former CNN anchor and Covid regime propagandist Chris Cuomo. From lockdowns to masks, vaccines, Ivermectin and the vilification of resisters, the debate covered a lot of ground, with Smith dropping one laser-guided bomb after another on Cuomo.

Let’s dive right into the highlights…First, Smith opened the debate with a gentlemanly gesture, giving Cuomo a copy of the Tom Woods book, “Diary of a Psychosis: How Public Health Disgraced Itself During Covid Mania.” Tongue in cheek, he said, “I know you like following the science, and there’s a whole lot of science in that book.” Before the next clip, recall that, in an infamous segment on CNN, Cuomo and Don Lemon smugly battered Joe Rogan and others who used Ivermectin to battle Covid. Despite the fact that Ivermectin has been used since 1975 with great success against a wide variety of human maladies, Cuomo and Lemon ran hard with the regime narrative that referred to the wonder drug solely as a veterinary de-wormer.

Earlier this month, Cuomo revealed to Bet-David that he’s now himself taking a “regular dose of Ivermectin” for purported long Covid. However, In this jaw-dropping sequence, Cuomo stunned anyone with a memory of his exchange with Lemon by saying, “I don’t like what people did to Joe Rogan about Ivermectin.” A stunned Smith replied, “YOU did it!” Cuomo denied it and challenged Smith to “find the clips.” The PBD crew obliged, promptly rolling the damning video: Smith condemned Cuomo for failing to do his job, which was to “be skeptical of power and to shine a light against the propaganda…you ate up every piece of propaganda, repeated all of it without any thought to whether it was true or not, and then smeared millions of Americans like myself who were opposed to this stuff.” Cuomo said Smith was guilty of using “hyperbole” in referring to the Covid regime as “totalitarian.” An unwavering Smith had a pointed and compelling response: Smith elaborated, explaining why “it was completely criminal for all of these governments to lock down”…

Asked whether lockdowns were a net benefit — or instead erred on the side of catastrophe — Cuomo drew audience laughter when he said, “The people I talked to — who made these decisions — stand by them.” Smith quipped, “I’m sure Dick Cheney stands by the war in Iraq too!” Smith grew indignant when Cuomo suggested that Smith’s focus was on drawing attention to himself — to the detriment of society. Smith countered: “You’re attacking my motives…meanwhile, when those CNN checks were coming in, you said nothing that would have put them in jeopardy, but now that you’re here, you’re starting to tell a little bit of the truth.”

[..] Alas, amid the joy of Smith’s outstanding performance, there was a wistful element too, as many who’d hoped Smith would carry the flag of liberty as the 2024 Libertarian Party presidential candidate were reminded of what a remarkable champion he would have been — in stark contrast to the leftist, open-borders, drag-queen-promoting, kid-transing doozie the party ended up with. That said, far be it from us to end a feel-good story on a down note. Our highlight reel just scratched the surface: If you’re looking for weekend entertainment, here’s the entire debate, which also covers much more Covid ground, Trump’s trumped-up conviction and a lot more:

“We certainly can’t support the election of a person to the position of NATO’s secretary general, who previously wanted to force Hungary on its knees..”

Mark Rutte, The Dutch Invader, Is Sinking In The Hungarian Goulash (Helmer)

The Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte was the first leader of a NATO state to try to send his soldiers on to the Ukrainian battlefield to fight Russian forces directly. That was in July 2014, in the aftermath of the Ukrainian shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17. That Rutte scheme failed after it was vetoed by the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel; she insisted on more time to prepare the NATO forces in the Ukraine to fight Russia. Now that they are, Rutte is the US candidate to become the new secretary-general of NATO. For the first time, however, his appointment is being vetoed by a NATO member, Hungary, which has proposed an alternative candidate – the ethnic German Klaus Iohannis, who is President of Romania. Because NATO rules require unanimity on the secretary-general, the Hungarian objection puts the Rutte nomination in the soup — make that goulash.

Rutte’s plan to deploy up to 9,000 troops in the Donbass had been devised in the summer of 2014 with two other Dutchmen – David Petraeus, who is also a US national, a US Army general, and former CIA director; and Sandra Roelofs, a Dutch national who held Georgian citizenship because she was married to Mikheil Saakashvili, onetime President of Georgia. Their cover story was that the NATO military intervention force was required to recover the black boxes of the downed MH17 aircraft and the bodies of the passengers, most of them Dutch. Every one of Rutte’s attempts to go to war with Russia has ended in exposure of his personal lying; the collapse of the Dutch-based Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW); and the loss of almost €30 billion in bilateral trade – oil and petroleum products from Russia; Dutch pharmaceuticals, medical technology, financial services, cut flowers, seeds and plants.

None of these losses has had material or political impact on the domestic Dutch constituencies or the Dutch media, which have accepted the state propaganda line, and in the case of the Dutch media owner, Derk Sauer, the money to keep repeating it. The book documenting the collaboration of Rutte and his officials in fabricating the narrative of Russian culpability in the MH17 crash, concealing the role of Kiev president Petro Poroshenko, and manipulating the evidence at The Hague District Court show trial, can be read here. Defeated at the Dutch parliamentary election last November, Rutte has been replaced as prime minister by a coalition of parties led by Geert Wilders, who agreed this week to Hendrikus (“Dick”) Schoof as prime minister. Schoof is a Dutch deep-stater and career liar who was promoted by the MH17 affair into the Dutch equivalent of the FBI, and then into the top job of the Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security.

According to a veteran Dutch political analyst, “the nomination of Dick Schoof is a terrible fact. He is the head of the secret services responsible for NATO agitprop on MH17, on OPCW, on the so-called Covid protective measures. Also, he was responsible for the protection of Geert Wilders [from Islamic attacks]. In a way Wilders has been his prisoner – Schoof has been the jailer who has held the keys to Wilders’s physical survival. Schoof has also been protecting Rutte from personal scandal. He’s the J.Edgar Hoover type of secret policeman.” The Russian reaction to Rutte’s nomination for the NATO post was muted until the Hungarian government announced that it is opting out of NATO operations, financial support and arms supplies to the Ukraine war; and that it will not accept Rutte at NATO. “We certainly can’t support the election of a person to the position of NATO’s secretary general, who previously wanted to force Hungary on its knees,” Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó said several weeks ago.

“I’m saying this slowly so that Brussels would understand: we will not go to war. We will not go to the East for a third time, we will not go to the Russian front again.”

Huge Anti-War Rally In Budapest, Hungary (RT)

Hundreds of thousands participated in a peace march in Hungary’s capital, Budapest on Saturday, denouncing the EU’s policy of escalating tensions with Russia. The event culminated with a speech by Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who accused Brussels of bringing Europe closer to a global conflict. The demonstrators marched from the iconic Chain Bridge to Margaret Island on the Danube River. Many carried flags, chanted pacifist slogans, and held signs reading “No war” and “Give us peace, Lord.” “Never before have so many people lined up for peace. We are the biggest peace corps, the largest peacekeeping force in Europe,” the prime minister said, as quoted by Reuters. “Europe must be prevented from rushing into war, into its own destruction.”

https://twitter.com/i/status/1796910522383704217

Orban said his country must draw lessons from the devastation it went through the darkest times of the 20th century. “In the two world wars, the Hungarians lost 1.5 million lives, and with them – their future children and grandchildren,” he told the crowd. “I’m saying this slowly so that Brussels would understand: we will not go to war. We will not go to the East for a third time, we will not go to the Russian front again.” Orban urged everyone to support the “pro-peace and pro-sovereignty” agenda of the ruling Fidesz party in the European Parliament election next week. “Do we want to shed Hungarian blood for Ukraine? No, we don’t,” he said. The pro-war [forces] have gone beyond common sense by wanting to defeat Russia as they tried to do during the First World War and the Second World war.

Since the start of Russia’s military operation in Ukraine in February 2022, Orban has repeatedly accused the EU leadership in Brussels of dangerous brinkmanship with Moscow and warned that the bloc must not allow itself to be dragged into a full-blown war. Budapest has refused to provide any military aid to Ukraine and threatened to veto financial assistance to Kiev. Orban heavily criticized the economic sanctions imposed on Moscow by the EU, arguing that the bloc had “shot itself in the lungs” by undermining trade and its own energy supply.

    RFK Jr: Elon Musk “stood up for free speech despite it costing him tens of billions of dollars”

    Yeah, the white children lover and black children murderer says buying credibility is expensive. What a guy, the Americians will love him for that, but we all know who is paying, his BFF Netanyahoo will pay the bill.

    This is such a cheap salesman trick, I cannot believe we are being sold this doozy as some kind of free-speach champion …. did you already forget that he does not allow free speech on his platform, not even in the USA? Wow, Americans will fall for any old shit; something sparkly will do it. Sell them on the goods, let them fall in love with the goods, don’t let them know the goods are shite and definitely don’t tell them how much they will cost until they are committed and their wife just “loves it” and they have no choice. Yawn.

    You would think that the biggest consumer society on earth would have learned something about buying shit, but apparently not, maybe that is why the Chinese society is not a consumer society, maybe they have the brains to understand when they are being sold something they don’t need, want or can afford … the Americans, nah, they will buy anything. Dumb as.

    The American people are the ultimate jury and the verdict will be in on 5 November.

    What universe does this Douglas Macgregor guy live in? Do you seriously believe that the people of the USA chose Biden? If they did, isn’t that a decent case against democracy? What is wrong with people in the west, they seem to believe that people who want to control a nation do not bother controlling the elections, even though the CIA seems to manage to do it everywhere EXCEPT the USA.

    The people of the USA decide fucking nothing. For a start, you cannot stand for congress without a heap of cash, provided by people who will want you to abandon your voters and do what they want. So, that immediately turns your election campaign into a lie, you will now produce adverts, paid for by your contributors, that will lie to your voters in order to sucker in as many as possible. Once you have their vote, you get in power and do as you are told so that next time your contributors can rely on your service. The voters are a part of the game, you have to con them into voting for you, but that can be done with lots and lots of ads that say nothing and make them feel good for voting for you; the voters are the target of the advertising campaign paid for by your donors. That is all your donors do; pay to persuade people to vote for you so that you can then vote in congress according to the wishes of your donor.

    Then there are the people who count the vote, that is a whole story in itself.

    And they call America the greatest democracy on earth; why are Americans so retarded?

    JD Vance just dug Wolf Blitzer’s grave and shoved him into it, live on CNN.

    Which will make as much difference to American society as a squirrel farting in the woods. Who cares? Talking to CNN gives them legitimacy, it gives Vance legitimacy, it is pure theatre, everybody is getting paid for this show. More US nonsense.

    Yeah, but he supported the genocide of over 30,000 Palestinians, so he should count himself lucky, 34 is gettng off lightly. Let’s hope that Bubba only fucks him once in jail before slitting his throat.

    “The only thing better than that would be to witness the first president in US history to pardon himself as the Trump legacy goes full circle.”

    And how is he going to control the voting machines from jail? You think that the Biden family will allow the Trump family to control the votes, get real, this is the US mafia politics war. I was going to write “RIP US democracy”, but we all know there has never been any real democracy in America.

    “Predictive Programming”

    Unf I would say that’s a bad title for what is sort of normal. Like calling it “Brainwashing” not “Advertising.” Not that it isn’t true, but it’s also sloppy. Many actually ARE just stories (you have to make a movie about something, and the something has to be exciting, and probably trendy), all of which complicates that this is often true. For instance, it is a verifiable fact that the CIA and Pentagon are major backers of Hollywood projects, enough that their small addition might get your highly competitive project over the line…or scrapped. Now they may say it’s “P.R.” for “Recruitment” or something fairly innocent, but how do we judge this? Was getting a bunch of “Jack Ryans” hired with good intents as your “Jason Bournes” but then actually “go shoot, burn women’s, children’s houses and villages and stuff after being a litterbug” can possibly be all that innocent? As that is domestic influence, how can that possibly not be illegal for the CIA? And before Obama’s “It’s okay to propagandize the American Public law, with $1 Trillion every 100 days” how would it be considered legal for the Pentagon? We used to have rules and laws for a reason, you know.

    Go back and watch That Captain America and tell me if you think it’s 10 years ahead – too far actually – of where we are now. It laid the whole thing out.

    Pic: It’s the fake Putin!!! Look at his ears!

    (Pro challenge: Who was airbrushed out of this picture? Like the Stalin joke: Nobody else knows what happened to them either.)

    “• Tyranny Is Upon Us: Law And Juries Are Weaponized (Paul Craig Roberts)

    I’d say great, we’re finally up to speed after 100 years of rigging courts and juries, but PCR probably already knew. As a rich, connected guy, he may have thought it didn’t apply to him though.

    “Keep in mind that a single accounting reporting charge, a misdemeanor, was magically turned into 34 federal felonies of election violations,”

    Aaaaaand what did we see? Well, a minute before this case started, Biden’s top DoJ guy took a major pay cut and joined the Bragg DA office as “Chief Council”. Then he showed up and stood in the back of the Press conference and got on camera as Bragg’s team and support yesterday. This is similar to Fani flying 25x to the White house – cuz county D.A.s do that – to talk to Mary McCord, etc.

    This is of course not political. It’s not political to DO it, it’s only political and illegal to TALK about it.

    So where is Biden’s hand-pick DoJ guy off to now?

    “The constitutional law professor: “Even after sitting in the courtroom watching the trial and the verdict, I still have no idea what Trump was convicted of in the case..”

    Me either.

    However, as a point of getting the American public up to speed about how things honestly, really, and truthfully work, it seems to be turning a corner. This is in the words of Mike Johnson, who points out they’re “Waking up” as seen by record-breaking small-number donations, but especially the Black vote as they’ve been telling the rest of America that for years.

    Not that there isn’t an element of that, let me tell you a story that is more likely: guy in long, long line of traffic court, before a judge, drove +6 months WITHOUT INSURANCE, got pulled over for another violation, car impounded, license revoked. Now this happened because he was working +12h day, with a life in disarray (divorce, moving…) and so ALSO did not have the money for a lawyer at that minute. All day wasting time he should be working, people come in, in sweat pants, having been finally caught up and grabbed by police to make their court date. S—tty look, sh—tty attitude, knowing they’re going to get railroaded, talking back to the Judge, lying, slurs, curses, calling names. He shows up promptly, on the date, without a car, in a suit, says “Yes your Honor, No, your honor, yes, sir, here’s what happened, sir, your honor.” Judge sets up a system of rules, which if he follows, he can get out of this with no further problems.

    Guess which race is which, mostly? Or which white trash could ALSO borrow a suit, and say “Yes sir” for once in their lives and get off, essentially “for free”? So…who’s being really railroaded here? Is there a law against you NOT hiding from your court date and making the police and judge be super p-ssed you’re sticking a finger in their eye and have to come get you when they’re already busy and overwhelmed? Did cursing out the Judge work real well for setting you free? Does LOOKING like a criminal, with your hoodie and your pants down, help the judge make a determination that you’re an upstanding citizen, just needs a break and trying to look for hard, honest work? Yeah, I don’t want to kiss the judge’s ring either, but I was wrong and got caught. It’s a fair cop, those are the rules. Now use the same rules after.

    Pro tip: if you’re going to commit crimes, wear a suit. Works for the rest of the country.

    But back to the point, Trump = Felon = Black vote. That’s because of their sense of it, and our courts, for right or wrong. That’s a sad testament. As Charlamagne tha God said, when he wanted to pass exams, work and and grow rich, they asked him “Why you wanna act White?” Ouch. Might want to reflect on what that means to yourself, family, neighborhood, and people.

    “While the Democrats may be rubbing their hands in glee after finally getting Trump entangled in the judicial net, they continue to ignore the fact that every scandal has only served to empower the 45th president.”

    Including every article – here and worldwide – all reference him in every paragraph. Like that one on DEI advertising yesterday, having nothing at all to do with him. That Meta-Meta establishes that HE is the POWER, the real power, everyone must go and react, interact with HIM. Unlike Ron Paul or someone who they ignore: Assange for instance, or as much as they can. How about the guys Von Nothaus and the founder of Silk Road, whose names or existence we barely remember? THEY make Trump powerful. THEY give him $1 Trillion in free advertising, which THEY comment on themselves from time to time.

    So here’s the point: Trump Team are clearly not geniuses. It appears they’re using AI and computer modeling, which is dumber than a rock, but that’s how things are done, in or out of Intel and the Military. THIS WORKS. (the only two plays in their book, not AI) It’s been one of the few things that does work, turns the dial, Democrats help every minute of the day, so they keep doing it. That’s standard military. You may have planned something, and in fact, going to Verbone may have won faster. But IF the enemy is big and soft here, like Kherson, and if they’re going to let you take the whole area, well, how can you say no? It’s losing: keep them doing more of what’s losing. That’s doubly advised when the only way we win here is by NOT LOSING. Like the American Revolution. Verbone may lead you to a fast victory or it may look good for a while, go bad, and lose. That’s too much risk. Do what already works until it doesn’t anymore.

    They, Leftists, and the Coast’s flaw is their non stop ClusterB mental illness derngement. That means they think they’re better and smarter, and they naturally build themselves an air-tight fart bubble of people who agree – called -ss kissing sycophants – who ALSO have non-stop stealing that everybody else wants and needs to stop. It’s being a mafia boss, and to some extent then, EVERYBODY has a motive and is out to get you. So they are playing into their mental illness, and 80% of the country being slowly, massively, mobilized against them, they don’t notice and dismiss. Wouldn’t that normally be kind of hard? Like Ukraine, it’s not easy to hide a D-Day massing of forces. Here they’re hidden by the Invisibility Beam, the most powerful force known to man. They’re looking right at us, don’t see a thing.

    …Beacuse we’re non-people. Irrelevant. The Poors. Just like in Ukraine, Russia doesn’t actually exist, ipso facto, therefore, they can neither be fighting nor bombing us. QED. I rest my case. The American people are stupid, don’t matter, same as the vote, so we likewise ignore them. How’s that working?

    “arguing that “deepfakes” may appear as a result.”

    Um, how? Deepfakes can ALREADY exist about it, and it hasn’t been released yet. Are all Federal documents and actions now classified forever, because somebody “Might” make a joke about it? (A: Yes.)

    Anyway, this was all a setup, smell it a mile away. However, their audience is THEM, and none of the rest of us care. Left doesn’t care ESPECIALLY and it will wake no one new. So why bother? The Bragg trial is now the size and Reality TV level that can move the dial on these last holdouts.

    leading us on the path to the biggest race hoax in recorded history—and yet, it seems obvious, like a black swan event, that something so dastardly would be the inevitable outcome”

    Yes. Something big like this. Has to be as big as St. Floyd, and then provably popped and discredited in public. That takes a LOT of imagination. WHat could possibly be big enough for season two when you’ve already CG’d the universe, Thanos, and dancing elephants?

    “Would an actor, be willing to stoop so low as to falsely smear someone with an entirely made-up tape”?

    Would people who murdered 36,000 mostly children in Gaza, and 1 Million in Ukraine, plus 6 million worldwide, drummed out every general and reporter, poisoned half million of their own servicemen with Gulf War and D.U. etc, be willing to push a button that tells a harmless white lie? Well, you decide.

    This is what I mean by people “Getting up to speed” on how Courts really work, or political ones. You stop reversing yourself and meta-assuming it’s 1950 and all these guys have honest, good intent. You’re a reporter: did you not just spend the last lifetime PROVING that there’s almost no honesty or good intent? Where do they find these guys? Ambrose Bierce would die of cycnicism and alcohol poisoning after seeing how rotten America acted in 1900. So would any other reporter worldwide, btw, either at that time, or now. But that’s what made them “Reporters.” They had the CAPACITY for doubt, that maybe somebody-was-up-to-something, something entirely missing from all Reporters, pundits, commenters, and PCR today.

    What if I, he, they, them, is LYING? What if they got in a jam and aren’t telling the WHOLE truth – down to the smallest detail – to save themselves in the hopes they can redeem their office and reputation? (…then only get in deeper) WHAT IF there is a single fact, somewhere on the planet, you’re not aware of? NOPE. Not for Journalists graduated from Columbia U and Chad fact-checking on Twitter there’s not. THEY know everything, and Presidents with “Majestic” class security clearance know nothing and are stupid. Ego: There is not a fact, anywhere on earth, I do not know. I was once wrong about something, but turned out I was mistaken.

    Okay, I ask again Would they “be willing to stoop so low as to falsely smear someone with an entirely made-up tape?” Does that question look a little different now?

    “.authorizing Ukraine to strike targets deep in Russia. Using our weapons, trained in their use by our trainers..”

    Lies like this. NO. False. Using our weapons NOT used by their trainers. Not run by their trainers, not secured by their people, not targeted by their intel. Only, provably, certainly, 100%, U.S. weapons, U.S. money, U.S. soldiers, U.S. Intel, U.S. targeters, U.S. dogface pushing the button on the U.S chosen launchpad for the U.S. chosen target. In Russia.

    Tell me: what is Russia supposed to think about that? That you’re just protected by your lies? You can blow up whoever you want if you just lie about it? Before, during, and after? Then we’re NOT dead, then it’s okay?

    W. T. F. ????

    RFK, why are you helping? It was an easy vote to go third party, and you stopped me cold before you got started. At least betray us all AFTER. That’s not a big ask.

    “you have tank columns, you have artillery that operates in battery or battalion sized formations flooding a zone, you have big arrow movements and things of that nature,”

    Okay, IF you cannot mass anywhere, IF you have to send out ALL soldiers, alone, with hard-core weaponry and no supervision, THEN my guess is, the Central State isn’t going to last long? Because whatever THOSE soldiers want is going to happen. So they would have to agree with you, and if they think you’re a bunch of thieving scoundrels who are trying to get them killed, they’re going to take that weaponry you gave each man, can’t mass or oversee, and point it at YOU.

    …Yes, that’s exactly what the “Kentucky Rifle” was in 1770.

    “Allied Defeat Turns Into Battlefield Fantasies (Helmer)

    You can tell who’s who: Ze is in fantasy. NATO is in fantasy. The West is in fantasy. They are still back in “Russia can do that, they’re supposed to lose, and they will because it’s here on page 12 of the script.” Russia doesn’t exist. China flipped on them. The Sanctions worked. The F35 is the awesomestest plane ever. Fear my wrath!!! There’s no such thing as drones, and Yemen goatherders can’t shoot them down all day without a sweat and make the entire U.S. Navy retreat in the gulf.

    They’re still on “Well, maybe, sorta, we might maybe call some guys on the phone and convince them to COME to Switzerland – not that we’re in defeat or are going to sign anything or nothing – but that MAYBE we should, you know, TALK about contingency plans that we’ll never actually need, to freeze the contact line here…but just for a day or two, you understand, while Russia lets us re-arm and grow another 1M soldiers.”

    Um, no. You, sir, are INSANE. You are in writhing, psychotic, hebephrenic delusions. You MIGHT have done that last thing TWO YEARS AGO, when Ukraine had an army, when NATO had two guns left in a warehouse: an Enfield and a Mauser, but now is another PLANET of military difference. You are no longer on the PLANET of reality. There is no ship fast enough to fly you back to reality in time for you to catch up with the “realities on the ground.”

    So anyway, they’re still talking about the Kersh Bridge, which was militarily irrelevant 2 years ago, and ATACMs missiles which were militarily irrelevant 20 years ago.

    Go on, I guess, nothing else will top you. Something needs to go up and arrest your fantasies and we won’t. So thanks, I’d have to pay Russia for the favor, but they won a free country.

    “That’s a red line, the allies are calculating, which Putin would rather negotiate end-of-war terms than cross.”

    Of fantasies: Putin’s Bluffing!! 10,000th time in a row. Never bluffing before, isn’t now, been clear, if you remove Putin, every other man in Russia will bluff LESS and push red button MORE. …But the alternative is psychologically admitting they were WRONG. So? That’s impossible. We will blow up the whole world first, of course! That’s not even a question, never has been.

    “the Russian response will not be nuclear. … There are a thousand options between doing nothing and going nuclear,”

    How about blowing every French, British, and German satellite out of the sky in 5 minutes, in combination with something else? Not like they attacked the French people, or France. Why would Jean Dupont care? It will scare the s—t out of every leader though: they, every general, every action, every weapon, will stop working instantly. They’ll be completely defenseless. (in a way. But this only highlights how Russia is not “Invading” Europe.) Those satellites are expensive, but worse, not easy to replace and will take months. Could also set off a Kessler cascade for a decade.

    “The Doomsday Clock” is a P.R. tool meaning nothing. Just like “Global Warming” “Seas rising” “No pandas” “CO2 Measurements” etc. that ALSO never happen and can’t be proven. Because they had brains in 1950, they set it way back to start. But it’s not from 100 to 90 seconds since Trump, and where do you go to Zero seconds? Negative zero? Their P.R. fad is now used up.

    Btw, like Global Warming, this makes kids kill themselves, and the whole culture to short-termism, not think about the future but hedonistically live for today because: Why Bother? Not planting no trees when they’ll be blown up tomorrow. No need to start Chaucer or War and Peace. Shouldn’t write that symphony. Do drugs.

    “The result is that Ukraine is now defending a longer line of defense with even fewer forces than it started with.”

    Yes, and when will it end? I thought they should lose and give up about June of 2022 because “They should”. They didn’t, I was wrong, what now? Denial and lies are stronger than reality to most it seems. Worldwide. If they can go 2 more years, why not 4 more? Why not like our 1999 Stock collapse, 25 more? I’ll be right, but missing the timing is the same as being dead wrong.

    “foreign investment firms like NCH Capital, BNP, and the Vanguard Group now control around 28% of Ukraine’s arable land,”

    That’s more land than Russia took. AND they own the corporations too. And they did it without firing a shot.

    But there’s nowhere you can run
    ’cause a man with a briefcase
    Can steal more money
    Than any man with a gun” – Henley (6:15)

    “..you ate up every piece of propaganda, repeated all of it without any thought to whether it was true or not..”

    That’s the #Opposite of “Media”, #Opposite of “Reporter.” That’s why when we say you’re an actor, a mouthpiece and a whore, we are not being slanderous or hyperbolic, we are being accurate. It’s not some kind of joke, it’s like saying “Water is wet.”

    Dave Smith: Again, only Comedians tell the truth, while the non-comedians are a joke or a clowns. Karlin, Jon Stewart (once), Jimmy Dore, Russell Brand, Joe Rogan (actually).

    “The Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte was the first leader of a NATO state to try to send his soldiers on to the Ukrainian battlefield to fight Russian forces directly.”

    Great. Then Moscow should nuke Amsterdam, right? This is what Putin is saying when he says “They are very small countries and may want to think.”

    Speaking of Dutch, there’s “Royal” Dutch Shell and they are deeper into oil and gas than almost everybody, while Dutch pretending the most to be “Green”. You have to understand Holland IS oil (right now) but the size of Kaliningrad, to grasp why Russia is so involved for them: They are Russia. But with no land, no army, no power…and now no oil or resources. Sirs: be Holland. That’s not a bad thing. Is it better to betray who you are instead?

    “Huge Anti-War Rally In Budapest, Hungary (RT)

    It’s nice to have a peace rally where everybody is NOT being arrested. Is that the only nation on earth? All 200 others would arrest their people? Not just for war, but for everything?

    Speaking of, what WAS with that stabbing vid? Why was the camerman filming a food vendor in an empty square to start is my first question. Don’t know why that stands out, because the injuries and type sure looked real (although, lack of blood in neck). Do you film everything, like your laundry, your shopping? And you ALSO happened to be in this deserted square? If it’s staged then wtf, makes almost less sense ’cause he was seriously going at it.

    “because we evolved at the equator…”

    Clearly we did not because we don’t take heat well either.

    In fact, there’s like 40 reasons we can’t have “Evolved” in our present form at all. Half what we do is not Evolutionarily sound, like being unable to make Vitamin C. But also, our hair and nails don’t stop and need to groomed with scissors, we’re soft and squishy, suited to no environments at all. We cannot live alone, therefore must have had languages since always, we can’t give birth, etc.

    How is any of that evolutionary? And those aren’t even the largest issues, they’re just so obvious in a culture that can’t stop saying “Men and women, evolutionarily” while having almost nothing underneath to substantiate it. It’s a Religion: they just make it up. Can’t be debated, discussed, have no evidence. They have NO IDEA what men did in caves, what neanderthals were, same as we don’t know what the Garden of Eden was or what Adam did there. Just all made up. We’re projecting US onto yet another blank canvas and saying “Man, that guy is GORGEOUS!!” It’s like the water we/they’re in, taken for granted as “Everybody knows.” Well – I – don’t know. So tell me. I didn’t get “The Memo.” Bring your Science for a change, I would like to read it.

    The Doomsday Clock was at 17 minutes to midnight when Clinton came to office, but just 9 minutes when he left it. Bush pushed the clock to just 5 minutes, Obama to 3 minutes, and Trump to a mere 100 seconds. Now Biden has taken the clock to 90 seconds.

    Fucking meaningless shite from the nuclear scientists of the USA, all of whom are woke progressive idiots who claim they need to be heard. Give us a break, this clock garbage is meaningless, only a bunch of government scientists would come up with such a stupid idea, based on nothing. Here is their website … https://thebulletin.org/, you can have fun reading what government paid scientists think, amaxingly it is exactly what the government tells them to think. Morons.

    In a debate hosted by Patrick Bet-David of PBD Podcast fame, “Part of the Problem” podcaster and comedian Dave Smith took on former CNN anchor and Covid regime propagandist Chris Cuomo.

    Cuomo is a bit thick, he didn’t know he was a bit thick until he met a real person. I guess it must be tough being born into a privileged family, everyone telling you how great you are, you accepting the praise but not having the brains to understand that they are kissing your ass because of your parents. Then you go meet a real person and discover that you are a bit slow, your brain cannot work at the normal rate and now you are unprotected by your entourage and have to stand on your own two feet. You try to be genuine but your brain just can’t keep up, you are a bit retarded, then your retarded self get shown on TV. Yeah, the trust fund kids (called credit card kids in Asia) are all fucking morons because they have not needed to learn survival, these are the rabbits that walk up to the fox then are surprised when the fox eats them.

    “The woke aren’t rejecting merit because they don’t understand the consequences of doing so, but because doing so enables them to destroy the institutions that have made their lives so meaningless. They are determined to DIE and therefore have made DEI their deity and built an IED in its image.

    MacDonald is an exemplar of an abundant species of vaguely conservative anti-woke crusaders who seem to think that the woke are simply wrong, that they can be won over with plain-spoken logic and common sense, and that we can then all return to the sensible classical liberalism of 1995. Their analysis tends to focus on demonstrating the obvious flaws in wokeness, which is frankly low-hanging fruit because Marxcissists are quite clearly mentally ill – any sapient human can see that women are not men. Everything else about our civilization is, these conservatives seem to feel, absolutely fine, and therefore worth conserving. That’s what makes them conservatives.

    Others see more deeply.”

    @Aspnaz: Hungarians, Magyars, are sort of Slavic and sort of Turkic, but not quite. not regular whites.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hungarians

    The historical Magyar conquerors were found to show significant affinity to modern Bashkirs, and stood also in contact with other Turkic peoples (presumably Oghuric speakers), Iranian peoples (especially Jaszic speakers), and Slavs. The historical Magyars created an alliance of steppe tribes, consisting of an Ugric/Magyar ruling class, and formerly Iranian but also Turkic (Oghuric) and Slavic speaking tribes, which conquered the Pannonian Steppe and surrounding regions, giving rise to modern Hungarians and Hungarian culture.[43]

    reference argument with spouse from yesterday:
    yesterday was finished a project the lady of the house desired.
    The lady wanted to replace the beds in two of the bedrooms with the largest beds available. The question of which furnishings would be placed in the rooms was addressed. It was noted that the space between the new bedding and the furnishings would be insufficient for human scale. There was a difference of opinion.
    Autocad was fired up and a floorplan of each room created. Polyline blocks representing the furnishings desired were created and placed as desired in each floorplan. A copy of each floorplan was made for each available bed size with a polyline block representation of each bed placed. The space between each bed and the furnishing was annotated. An existing bed was moved until the space that would have been created by placing the largest bed came into being.
    The lady of the house now has a new mattress in one room and a new bed frame and mattress in the other. Neither of the new mattresses are the largest available. There was no agument and opinion was superceded by measurement.
    My emotional construct and opionion of necessity tends to make spartan appear oppulent. The lady of the house is constructed of a more genteel nature. The lady, a professional with a vocation for teaching children music, is the home builder, the Home MAKER. There are also new bed dressings and accessories in each room. The fabrics, the textures and colors of the bed dressings and the accessories are all according to the ladies emotions and opinion of style. My opinion of these things play no role, the home builder is happy and that pleases my emotions.
    I understand that the Y chromosome folds a few proteins differently from those of the monogametes and aside from that necessity of sexual reproduction the Y chromosome is mostly superfluous. Emotion and opinion aside. The monogametes have more than a million years of home building experience prior to the advent of agriculture and that is a fact.

    on the predictive programming, someone needs to convince me that 9/11 and all subsequent history is not the result of predictive programming. The stench of The Tonkin Gulf Incident still offends my olfactory sense. That five countries in five years planning springs to mind.

    Oroboros they are not suffocating they like the view.

    Looking at the Tyndall experiments I was attempting to see the amounts of gases used. It would seem he used the gases mentioned at concentrate, I may have missed something? Still I wonder if he had the ability to use just natural air and then inject a few ppm’s to note any change? Would he have had any reasonable way to measure any gas concentration at ppm levels, or even at a few parts per thousand? I bought this drivel about co2 for far too long as if it were passed down by the gods. So here is an experiment from The Royal Society:
    Abstract
    A simple experiment has been developed to demonstrate the global warming potential of carbon dioxide (CO2) gas in the Earth’s atmosphere. A miniature electric resistance heating element was placed inside an inflatable balloon. The balloon was filled with either air or CO2. Whereas the CO2 partial pressure on the earth’s atmosphere is approximately 4 × 10−4 atm, in this experiment, a high partial pressure of CO2 (1 atm) was used to compensate for the short radiation absorption path in the balloon. The element was heated to approximately 50°C, the power was then switched off and the element’s cooling trends in air and in CO2 were monitored. It took a longer time to cool the heating element back to ambient temperature in CO2 than in air. It also took longer times to cool the element in larger size balloons and in pressurized balloons when they were filled with CO2. To the contrary, the balloon size or pressure made no difference when the balloons were filled with air. A simple mathematical model was developed, and it confirmed that the radiative heat loss from the element decreased significantly in CO2. This investigation showed that the cooling rate of an object, with surface temperature akin to temperatures found on Earth, is reduced in a CO2-rich atmosphere because of the concomitant lower heat loss to its environment.

    That last line says it all “CO2-rich atmosphere” their atmosphere is all CO2 and we are at, what was that JBHB less than 1% with grand increases of a few millionths of 1%. Fear baby fear, there be monsters under your bed.

    Western “Ukraine” was always a Fake Country with a Fake Language.

    “Ukrainian” is just a bastardized crude dialectic of Russian evoked to legitimize a Fake Cultural construct of a ‘country”.

    The Hungarian portion of Fake Ukraine will be reabsorbed into Hungary with NO ILLEGAL MIGRANTS in sight.

    Hahahahahaha Euroturdistan up your!

    The Polish part of Fake Ukraine will be an endless guerrilla warfare with second rate Neo-nazis killing Poles for generations!

    A living lethal Polish joke.

    Transnistria will help facilitate a land corridor to Hungry and Serbia so they can join BRICS and be saved from sure death in the dying West.

    My daughter is a visual artist. Like many of her friends, she has an instagram account. Apparently, Meta decided to use its users posts — including their original artwork — to train their AI models. https://mashable.com/article/meta-using-posts-train-ai-opt-out My daughter was telling me yesterday that, apparently, if an artist posts original work on Meta (FB, instagram, etc.,) all of their hard work put into developing their craft and style can be copied by AI, and used for AI to generate comparable art.

    This is the area where humanity shines — individuals who take the time to learn a craft or art or skill: visual artists, musicians, net throwers, actors, surgeons, teachers, etc., and through their diligence and dedication a beautiful synergy arises. The results are art and music and buildings, children taught and lives saved. We honor these people for their efforts and work, even when they have failings in their personal lives, because their social contributions are greater than their immediate social circle of family, close friends, neighbors, and coworkers.

    What happens when an AI produces visual “art” in seconds, commercial jingles and pop music, architectural plans, learning modules, and performs surgery? What is the point and purpose to learning to draw or paint or play piano if an AI can “do it better” or “do it for me?” Humanity will be tempted to take the route of the child of wealthy parents…who cannot give limits to the child because all limits are surmountable with money, and imposing a limit might be interpreted as withholding love. Hunter Biden who spends his life on hookers and blow and creating bad art because he never learned the value of persevering through adversity. It is in persevering through adversity and challenge that humanity becomes more than the sum of its parts.

    Evolved at the equator

    Near the equator the temps don’t change much one way or the other, neither hot nor cold, staying near what is commonly referred to as “room temperature.” So, yeah, I’d say that suggests humans evolved at the equator, we tend to abhor large temperature swings.

    The Yemeni Houthis for the second time announced a strike on the

    aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69).

    The previous message appeared on May 31, and on June 1, the US Department of Defense extended the deployment of four ships from the anti-Houthi coalition for a month. That evening, the Eisenhower and an unnamed destroyer were attacked by PKBMs and UAVs.

    In addition, drones and missiles were launched at three civilian vessels. The bulk carrier MAINA was subjected to two attacks, first in the Red Sea and then in the Arabian Sea.

    The LNG tanker AL ORAIQ was attacked in the Indian Ocean, and the oil tanker ABLIANI was attacked in the Red Sea.

    Regardless of the success of each attack individually, the Houthis are doing an excellent job of creating and maintaining tension in the Red Sea region, which, in turn, affects world processes.

    The cost of transporting goods is growing, transport companies are incurring high costs, not to mention the countries that traditionally “feed” on this sea route.

    Curiously, CENTCOM reported only the launch of a PKBM on the destroyer USS Gravely (DDG-107) and the interception of several drones. There were no reports of damage to civilian vessels or coalition ships.

    However, according to some sources, the Eisenhower moved to the Jeddah area. However, this does not mean damage to the aircraft carrier.

    Of course, it is unlikely that the Houthis will be able to sink or at least damage an aircraft carrier covered by air defense ships, but nothing prevents them from continuing to strike.

    Without a ground operation in the face of a large number of false targets and many years of preparation for war, it is not possible to knock out the Houthi unmanned missile capabilities.

    Conversely or perhaps it’s complimentary:

    “Don’t expect your patient to react or behave like the 95% Confidence Interval in your double blind, randomized clinical trial”

    John Day can attest to the following.

    “The physician-scientist-statistician is almost never a skilled diagnostician nor possess astute clinical acumen”

    “If we allow the standard that you can throw your political opponents in jail because they’re doing better than you in an election, it will be the end of this country as we know it.”

    It is the end of the country as we knew it…. time to get real and stop with the hypothetical bs.

    If there is any fight left in Americans…It is unclear what stands against the tyranny of Washington.

    Brave new world…far too many Americans begged Daddy govt to tyrranize them harder,,,rule me harder Daddy Biden. Sponsored by the Fauci fan club following at the speed of science.

    “President” Joe Biden’s decision to greenlight Ukrainian strikes using US-supplied weapons inside Russian territory.

    Fuck around and find out Brandon. Just because Ashley didn’t resist you raping the shit out of her, does not mean the rest of the world will roll over for trash like you.

    Biden has taken the clock to 90 seconds. Most presidents, and most Americans, have little idea how close to the abyss we are.

    Reality bites hard… We are in the abyss, not getting close to it. IN IT to win it right brainwashed subhuman(brain dead zombies) trash Liberals ?

    Ukraine will not exist in 50 years..

    Nor will USA…the US does not exists today ass we “knew it”…

    Cuomo: “I can argue yes, and I can argue no.”

    Another example of Liberals being brain dead sub-human trash. Total retarded hypocrites… we’re all in the abysss together…thanks to all that effective tyrannical “resistance” these past years. Ask Julian. His body their choice. Your mind their choice.

    Americans will fall for any old shit…

    Have fallen.

    Perhaps Billy Joel will rewrite the Piano Man ?
    As Liberals locked down the bars, broke the piano, drank all the poison, and are now too sick with no firewood to huddle together on the corner which the nukes took out… only one good use for piano wire now.

    Military mission creep is no different then “Society creep”…the slide into dystopian insanity from “democracy”.

    It’s fascinating to see that ALL the grocery stores (Liberal run shithole city) now have multiple armed guards.

    Let me repeat that-
    ALL the grocery stores now have multiple armed security guards…

    They make you line up at the exit after overpaying for inflationary prices and “check” your receipt which they mark with a glow pen… Shithole Nation, run by retarded corrupt politicians, supported by retarded braindead sheeple…

    There are 2 women in my house.
    I learned early that their vote counts, while my vote doesn’t count at all!
    My only defense against their proposed homemaking projects is that it is too much work!
    If they require me to do all the work, then I have some leverage.
    I then stall and hope in time they will forget that particular project!
    Of course they just generate new proposals!
    I do my best to not bite and let them talk away how great it would be.
    They are social animals and need to talk!
    If you look in either of my ears, you will see daylight!
    This hole allows for the safe passage of sounds to pass through my head without harming me (most of the time)!
    P.S. I design all of my projects on the back of envelops!

    While the Empire of Lies may have run out of real things to throw at the Russians, one thing they are in no danger of running out of is money to corrupt Ukraine’s elites to keep the war going.
    This war will continue as long as the Ukrainian elites are making money from the war.

    My Mother’s test to see if my Father was really listening.

    My Father learned over time to constantly say unhun, unhun, etc.
    My Mother would then ask my Father if it was OK to buy a fur coat (knowing it wasn’t)!
    My Father always nicely fell into the trap by saying, unhun!
