    Yay Wikipedia hasn’t had the spook treatment on this page yet…
    Note this bit
    The town set a world record of most consecutive days of 100 °F (37.8 °C) or above, during a period of 160 days from 31 October 1923 to 7 April 1924.

    You read that right. 1924. OCEANS BOILING – so hot that north west oz was an oven for nearly 6 months!

    TPTB doesn’t even care to pretend anymore:

    Dr. D

    “Awkward: Rachel Maddow Calls Out ‘Election Deniers’ as Hillary Clinton Offers Blank Stare”

    I was more interested in this being the 55 year old Clinton this time. She’s 76. Also didn’t they have this interview like an hour after the indictment? As if they knew something and the case was posted to the court to begin before the Grand Jury convened?

    Ramaswamy: Indicting the opposing candidate…

    Again, if he’s guilty of something you should. That’s what we did when Biden was (not) a candidate, etc. It’s equal under the law. Now, I’m afraid I am indeed practical and as others have said (Turley, Dershowitz) that case had better be the best and strongest case anyone ever saw. Because the effects are unusually high.

    Cavuto is interesting, revealing the media argument: “Well if there are NINETY-FIVE surely there must be SOMETHING…” I hear people use this one all the time. It’s an “Appeal to Authority” because if a corrupt government would bring ONE charge against an candidate, surely they wouldn’t illegally charge him a SECOND time, or 95 times. Duuuuh. He then moves on to the pardon, because that demonstrates proof of something to be pardoned of, etc.

    Like we don’t want Desantis removing any prosecutor he feels like, we also don’t want to say we can’t arrest crimes just because you’re a candidate. Or maybe we can. I declare my candidacy for the 2024 Presidential Election.

    …Of course I don’t have to. I can go into any gucci shop or any WalMart with a rolling garbage can and steal anything I want. Not only will the police not stop me, any employee that tries will be fired.

    …On an unrelated note, crime is suddenly way up.

    “”You would think the fact that Joe Biden just made as his Deputy Secretary of State… the person who was Dick Cheney’s top advisor for the Iraq War,”

    Yes but they love Dick Cheney. I mean, they love W Bush now. He’s their bestest friend. Albright said it was all worth it.

    To be more productive: Greenwald said there aren’t two parties, it’s now only the Insiders and the Outsiders. Yes, Finally. Been since Gingrich did nothing in congress in 1994, then nothing in impeachment later, that it was obvious. Or even before.

    “Now Christopher Clark is trying to sneak out of the building, hoping no-one will notice”

    I’m lost on this thing. As above my paradigm is that the prosecution and defense are the same people, working to the very same goals. If so, why work at all, why not edict? Who’s their audience? A: YOU. You are the people they are prosecuting against and need to convince. They don’t need convincing, they all agree their friends should do whatever they want!

    It is a good sign that they still have the need to do this, put on this elaborate charade. I appreciate the thought.

    Also, if Clark is sneaking away, who is he sneaking away FROM? Is there anyone, anywhere who will come down on him and punish him? If so, that would also be good and unexpected news. It’s always good when criminals still have enough sense to be fearful and ashamed.

    “Trump Attorneys Slam ‘Flawed, Unconstitutional’ Fulton County Indictment (Sp.)

    Speaking of Clark and Trump’s attorneys, perhaps you don’t know what the real indictment is here. Georgia indicted all of Trump’s LAWYERS. That is, “anyone who gave Donald Trump legal advice”. Put another way, “Giving plausible legal advice is now a crime”. If it’s against what WE WANT to be true. Today, all which changes tomorrow. Like first denying elections is good and the only legal thing, now it’s bad and the only ILLEGAL thing.

    So in the hierarchy of power, they are now down to Captains, that is, any officers of the courts. I suppose this means they’ve already captured all the Judges, the next level up. Nor is this unusual: in J6 and a few previous cases, they both made lawyers quit, and actively attempted to disbar them. Actually did in some cases, was it Guiliani? So no ordinary citizen can get, or will be allowed, to have legal council. Who will say anything the State doesn’t want them to say. Which is already happening, this is just formalizing it, sending it to the Supreme Court. Add a Socialist, Soviet System, get a Socialist, Soviet result.

    So: all lawyers who don’t obey will be rounded up and jailed for life like J6. How about the rest of us? Influencers, then just, all voters? …Yeah, I already thought we were doing that too. Good to know we’re not quite there yet, or not really. You see why this is the last battle and they had to own the court?

    You either agree with the government’s interpretation of election results or else you risk going to jail.”

    You agree on everything or go to jail.

    And here’s their argument:

    Yup, that’s the “Overturning elections”. That’s the “Coup”. 100 guys with no guns, completely surrounded by FBI agents having no plan, visited one building for a few minutes. Not an armory. Didn’t take a military base. THAT, my friends, is how you topple a government. Now excuse me, I’m going to tour the Eiffel Tower without any weapons and take over France without a plan. It will be the worst attack in the history of Europe.

    In any case, back to reality: All American movies end up in a courtroom drama (sadly). Now Trump can be on the nightly news demonstrating the election rigging they wouldn’t hear – or more accurately, wouldn’t report. The courts can RULE it, but they’ll just say that’s one corrupt guy who we know is corrupt because of his ruling. QED Because I already know without looking, reading, or asking anything. I got “The Memo”. (P.S. this month’s memo is now Florida is bad. All things Florida, and Florida has always been bad and we all always knew that.) So IF EVEN legal rulings, Supreme Court rulings, don’t matter and don’t have any effect on the Civil War, then what?

    …You need to get on TV. How? How can you get on TV with a captured media? A: You indict Trump. “We got him this time!!! Bombshell, walls are closing in!”

    So the media is now not going to report on the indictments they themselves created? I mean, probably, why not? Nothing else makes sense. But no, they’ll have to report something. Like Hunter it will break through until “We now all already knew that, and like Florida, we now always already knew that Hunter’s laptop was real BUT…it doesn’t mean anything.”

    Narcissist’s Handbook. “I didn’t do it” “You’re crazy” “Everyone says I didn’t do it.” “If I did, it’s your fault”. “If I did do it then it doesn’t matter anyway.” etc. Like Russian defense lines, one after another after another in an endless line to the horizon of denial.

    And so here. To avoid a Civil War, they have to get on TV and UN-DO what TV did to everyone for 40 years. With the TV guys still in control of that whole system. Well, problem solved. Hunter’s laptop is real, and the election is about to be reviewed in the court. …Of public opinion, the only court that counts.

    “these are not real crimes like insurrection or sedition; they are thought crimes.”

    Gosh there is so much new legal theories in all these indictments, I can’t keep up. Yes, that’s the other one here. Of course the Feds ALWAYS charge “conspiracy” since you don’t have to prove anything. But because they own the courts, 99% of people plead out, which is higher conviction rate than Hitler. So that’s not new. But this total thought crime, completely generalized with no actions at all, and from sea to sea, and on every single attorney is new.

    …And unlike the general mass, don’t think they don’t know it. I know attorneys and they will understand this before the sentence is finished. They’ll also comply because they have no spine or standards, only expedience. I don’t know how many attorneys the U.S. has, but all 250 million of them will understand immediately.

    “”It now appears there actually was meaningful voter fraud in Fulton County, Georgia last November.”

    Timing: wot a coincidence.

    It is telling that many politicians and pundits refuse to even acknowledge that obvious alternate meaning.”

    Yes, on the case, here’s another interpretation: the election was so solid we have to have court cases and indictments about it. If someone says, “You stole my donkey” do we arrest him? No, we send the police over there, search the house with him, find no donkey and the thing is over. So why are we doing everything BUT that this time? Why doesn’t this end somewhere?

    It’s because their case, the election, the recount was so amazingly accurate, honest, and strong, isn’t it? I always have the other guy arrested when I don’t have his donkey and it’s not right here in my yard.

    “Trump Must Turn Himself in at Georgia Jail – Sheriff (RT)

    The sheriff promises, honest injun, to have a mug shot this time. Somehow they arrested and indicted Trump all legal like, all over everywhere, without any handcuffs, fingerprints, or mug shots. Because it’s all totally, totally real. Because there’s one justice system for all and we don’t play favorites. I’m sure when I go, if I ask nice, they won’t for me either.

    Anyway, remains to be seen. Epic shot they actually had to have AI fabricate last time. Like David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix mug shots. Rock Stars.

    “How can this Administration continue to justify tens of billions of dollars for this losing war”

    That’s easy: Maui will pay for itself. They are refusing all aid, stopping all permits, and will run out all occupants like Peabody Mines. The will tie it up for 1,000 years, allowing ONLY the State of Hawaii to be a legal purchaser. No, really. They already said you can sell to anybody you want, as long as it’s the State of Hawaii, and BlackRock (need to check this) to make their 15-minute city, that is an open-air concentration camp as beta-tested on Gaza.

    …Or you can refuse, have no house, still pay taxes, can’t use the land, it’s worthless, no prospective buyers, and pay $100 million in legal fees over the next 50 years to get the title you already have. Your choice. Like Trudeau said: we’re not MAKING you do it or anything. It’s all voluntary. Narcissist’s Handbook. I mean, if you don’t get me a sandwich, I’ll punch you senseless, so: free choice.

    Anyway, Maui will be burned out, stolen out, and chopped up and sold by BlackRock. Who like Ukraine pays 80% in bribes. That’s a net profit. But having the Army shoot anyone who tries to bring aid or stop the looting and rapes is a nice touch. Like W: “Good Job Brownie”, my work here is done. God’s work.

    “• Team Biden Hurts US Prestige and Credibility By Walking Into Ukraine Trap (Sp.)

    A trap where the U.S. loses empire, leaves Europe, and Russia solves the Ukraine problem by annexing it.

    “• Ukraine Could Give Up Territory To Russia – NATO Official (RT)

    DMZ line. Okay, great: did anyone ask Russia? A: No, because Russia already said they’d immediately start WWIII with NATO and nuke London. NATO is not in control here. That’s the difference everyone is having trouble with.

    P.S. we already had three treaties on this. NATO broke all of them.

    “Vladimir Zelensky supplies the manpower for these experiments…”

    That is, live human experimentation. They have a long history of it, I don’t see why they’d be bothered. “European values”

    “outstanding performance characteristics” their highly-sophisticated equipment couldn’t perform appropriately in Ukraine’s tough battlefield conditions.”

    Oh wait: You wanted BATTLEFIELD drones for the war? Those are going to cost much, much more. The drones we have now fail in light rain and dust. That’s our level for “Outstanding Performance”, gold medal, best-in-class.

    “MI6 Plans To Send Ukrainian Mercenaries To Africa (RT)

    Well that makes sense….wait, what? Everyone in Ukraine is dead. So you’re losing the war for lack of men, you’re going to win it by removing more men? And listen: all the mercenaries worldwide are dead too. First in ISIS that we paid for, then in Ukraine. And they’re going to fight with what? We just took all the weapons FROM Africa and sold them to Ukraine, now we’re air-lifting them BACK?

    …It’s like you guys don’t know what you’re doing.

    ““sabotage of infrastructure in African countries”

    Um that’s illegal in like 6 ways. No declaration of war, but ALSO, attacking civilian infrastructure as the opening, very first, almost only, go-to act. Attacking civilians and their infrastructure is an open war crime. …Which the UN heartily approves, it seems. Britain attacking hospitals and water treatment plants in Nirobi just shows that they’re the good guys. Rally round, huzzah!

    “Greenpeace co-founder, Dr. Patrick Moore: Net Zero policies will result in the genocide of half the population.”

    Always framing as the FUTURE. If we don’t look out this MIGHT happen, someday, but never now. Although we are doing 100% of all those policies in some measure. There are no eggs in the store, all CA and HI are living in tents, and still this will happen “someday”. Okay man, tell me when you’re serious.

    @Oxymoron: Thanks for the thoughtful comment last night, with gentle, self-deprecating humor, Brother-down-under.

    : Thank you for clarifying the wind direction which stoked the Lahaina fire on Maui and the North Kohala fire on Hawaii (Big Island). It was not apparent in news stories I found. Coming oer the mountain and remaining fast on the leeward side, but squeezed dry, makes sense.

    I don’t think of throwing cigarettes butts as arson, but a lot of fires by highways start like that, when conditions are sustained hot/dry/windy. I suspect the Kohala Ranch fire, along Akoni Pule Hwy. in North Kohala was like that. The one from around 2007-2008 was like that, I think. It happened just before I worked there the first time.




    Maui – Plans for A High Tech Prison Island?

    The government of Hawaii states goal for rebuild is to make the entire island of Maui the first Smart Island.

    They want the entire island governed by AI as outlined in the Hawaii Digital government summit of 2023 that they have planned to host next month Monday, September 25, 2023 on Maui.

    “Hitachi recently announced that it has begun operations on the demonstration site for the “Japan-U.S. Island Grid Project” (commonly referred to as the “JUMPSmartMaui”) on the island of Maui, Hawaii, in collaboration with the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), Mizuho Bank, Ltd. and Cyber Defense Institute, Inc. An opening ceremony was held on Maui to coincide with the launch of site operations.”

    Last January of 2023 there was a Smart City Conference in Maui to turn Maui in an entire smart city ISLAND. Pushing everything electric and making 15 minute smart cities

    Lastly there was a contract last year that was signed to build high rise condos and businesses in Lahaina. which was a historical town that couldn’t have any new development done to it… but now?

    It can.


    .This investigation reveals the shocking true story of the Everybody Votes campaign—the largest and most corrupt “charitable” voter registration effort in American history—that may have decided the 2020 presidential election and could decide 2024. Commissioned by Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, funded by the Democratic Party’s biggest donors, and coordinated with cut-throat Democratic consultants, the Everybody Votes campaign used the guise of civic-minded charity to selectively register millions of “non-white” swing-state voters in the hopes of getting out the Democratic vote for a 2020 presidential win. It worked

    While we were engrossed in debating how many angels could dance on the head of a pin the following news item managed to be semi-released to a roar of deafening silence. .

    The source is Michael Yon, who has a world renowned record for zero-bullshit accuracy. Essentially, for the past couple of years the US Govt has been operating underage prison camps, populated by THOUSANDS of parent-separated children, from which children are delivered in groups of 5 to 10 to wealthy households in elite neighborhoods throughout the United States.

    These commercial sex & slavery operations are an open secret where they’re located in re-purposed Walmarts in financially strapped (and economically desperate) communities where so many stores were closed and virtually abandoned due to lockdown induced unemployment and local recession.

    It is IMPOSSIBLE for these human trafficking hell-holes to not be anything less than fully known and understood by ALL levels of “law enforcement” , utilities services, commercial supply and government agency from the local level all the way up to the Governor’s Office in every single place where this is going on.

    THOUSANDS of children, people. It’s operating NOW. This is light years beyond shameful.


    Maybe someone should ask these Georgia republicans if they have “challenge coins”?

    War talk/Peace talk
    Word salad from GEM:

    1. The question of whether peace can be achieved if there are still people alive who want peace is a complex and challenging one. There are many factors that influence the possibility and sustainability of peace, such as the sources and nature of conflicts, the interests and motivations of the parties involved, the role of third-party mediators and international organizations, the availability and distribution of resources, the respect for human rights and the rule of law, and the cultural and religious diversity of the world.

    One possible perspective is that peace is not a static or absolute state, but a dynamic and relative process that requires constant negotiation and compromise among different actors and stakeholders. Peace is not something that can be imposed or enforced by external forces, but something that must be built and maintained by the people themselves, through dialogue, cooperation, and mutual understanding. Peace is not only the absence of violence or war, but also the presence of justice, security, development, and dignity for all.

    Another possible perspective is that peace is an ideal or a goal that can never be fully realized or attained in a world that is inherently conflictual and competitive. There are always people who have different views, values, beliefs, needs, and aspirations, and who may resort to violence or coercion to achieve their objectives or defend their interests. Peace is not a natural or inevitable outcome of human interaction, but a rare and fragile exception that can be easily disrupted or destroyed by internal or external factors. Peace is not a realistic or pragmatic option for many people who face oppression, injustice, poverty, or insecurity.

    These are just two of the many possible ways to approach the question of peace. There is no definitive or universal answer to this question, as different people may have different definitions, expectations, and experiences of peace. The best we can do is to try to understand the complexity and diversity of the world we live in, and to engage in constructive and respectful dialogue with others who may have different perspectives or preferences. Peace may not be easy or simple to achieve or maintain, but it is certainly worth striving for.
    2. Can peace be obtained if there are still people alive who want war?
    This is a question that has troubled philosophers, politicians, and ordinary citizens for centuries. There is no simple answer, as different perspectives may have different definitions and criteria for peace and war. Some may argue that peace is possible even in the presence of conflict, as long as there is dialogue, cooperation, and respect among the parties involved. Others may contend that peace is impossible as long as there are people who seek to impose their will, ideology, or interests on others by force or violence. Ultimately, the question may not be whether peace can be obtained, but rather how we can strive to create the conditions and institutions that foster peace and prevent war.


    I definitely feel that the recent illness running through our entire house is unnatural. I have never had a sickness where the chest rattled like full of phlegm but no mucus can be coughed up. What is going on?
    Headaches, lethargy, coughing. Coughing with no conclusion.

    No snot. No mucus. No phlegm. No runny nose.

    I am convinced that what we all have is a bio-weapon.
    I’m not being paranoid and really I don’t care that much – I have some peace of God in my mental and on the other side of 50 I firmly grasp EVERYTHING dies that is a thing.
    But still, it is just weird.

    Also that the US has 36000 full time trained scientists who currently do nothing else at work but develop the enhanced pathogenicity of biological agents to inflict sickness on humans is the highest level of insanity I can imagine.
    But you know – you do you. If that is what gives you a good solid income and pays the mortgage and gives you high fives with the ‘disease crew’ in time for knock-off drinks, then you go girl.

    Trudeau gov’t to respond to ‘Freedom Convoy’ commission findings; here’s a refresher on the recommendations
    When the Public Order Emergency Commission released its five-volume report concluding that ultimately the federal government met the threshold for invoking the Emergencies Act, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised to present a plan to respond to the report’s findings within six months.

    The deadline on that pledge, made on Feb. 17, is this Friday.

    Watching the UniParty’s drug demented proglodytes lie, cheat & steal their way through their miserable lives was horrifically sad enough (I stay as far away as possible), but when demented libtards *publicly* stole the 2020 U$ election(s), it became apparent that GlobalCap imperial citizenry no longer even required the illusion of 2+ candidates to submit, that in fact the *majority* of huddled masses didn’t seem to care and/or notice…

    Having spent my career(s) dealing with .gov NPD zombies, from .mil & .doj bureaucratized syndicates that would have Ephialtes blush, I was accustomed to politically driven quislings, nutjobs & malcontents, but the level of malodorous bilge infesting *all levels* of U$ officialdom has reached historically ludicrous levels with the political prosecution(s) of Trump et al. 😐

    “Mainstream” CULTure, politics, journalism & media et al. has devolved into such a twisted cesspool of dissembling psychopathology, it makes goofy, low talent programming from *before* the real reality of brain damage within the aggregate of We The People seem like the “normal” good ol’ days:

    We The People were warned, with plenty of time to “self-correct”, too bad SOOO sad the bill is here, time to reap the whirlwind 😐

    Also that the US has 36000 full time trained *DEATH* scientists, who currently do nothing else at work but develop the enhanced pathogenicity of biological agents to inflict sickness on humans is the highest level of *FASCIST* insanity I can imagine.

    Humans have been trying to fix things with real bombs for hundreds of years (maybe longer) and it worked for shit. The Baddies just got more powerful, and worse, and so did their actions against us.

    Then someone came up with the idea of trying to fix things with truth. Nothing too fancy. Just plain old, unadulterated factual information, shared with each other. Surprisingly, this bright new idea seems to be working even better than hoped for. The baddies are now running scared and in their rising panic are making bigger and ever more flamboyantly obvious mistakes which only serve to make more people more aware (and pissed off) of how bad the baddies have been. Our side’s ranks increase by the millions per day, and the Bad Guys lose ground and power at a commensurate rate.

    exhorts us to go back to the first method. Now why in the Hell would someone want us to switch from a winning strategy back to a losing one? Beats me. Maybe we should ask him (or his handlers).

    We have got to make it here
    We satisfy our endless needs
    And justify our bloody deeds
    In the name of destiny
    And in the name of God
    And you can see them there
    On Sunday morning
    Stand up and sing about
    What it’s like up there
    They call it paradise
    I don’t know why
    You call someplace paradise
