“Experts Say We Could Defeat Global Warming if only Greta Thunberg Would Try a Little Harder.” — The Onion.
“France Dispatching Warship With Medical Aid To Gaza”
Well maybe they can sink this one.
“World Outcry for Israel to STOP the Carnage Has Zero Effect”
It’s almost as if we’re not in a democracy, but nah, that can’t be right.
“Yet Another Leftist Journalist Arrested on Child Pornography Charges”
Getting so when anyone is accused I can’t tell who’s the good guy and who’s getting framed…oh wait, good God no, they’ve listed all the police evidence against him in detail. Is that the difference between the sides now? One is all accusation and no details, the other is details and evidence but no accusations?
Is that why we’re not in a democracy? Because that requires an “informed populace”?
“Rain is the property of [the government]…”
Yeah that have that all over, worldwide. Even if it’s not “Rain” as Phoenix shows some of the laws were relaxed, they instead say the moment the rain has fallen and is a puddle, it’s a “Watercourse” and is very highly regulated. …So that then includes non-dry places, the Northeast, Northwest, etc. Used to be it had to be navigable, then of a reasonable year-round size, but as the Anglos do, they kept re-defining, re-defining until under Obama it was “everything”. So yes, literally a mud puddle in your driveway if you could find a judge to do it. For harassment (super fun!) or if a nearby Lord wants to steal your land for some reason, a mall maybe, or Yellowstone Ranch.
So it IS egregious, BUT it’s also very common.
“What other true information is suppressed?”
Well all of it, I think. The Only Enemy is Truth. They don’t suppress false information, Bigfoot or whatever, although for no reason, no connection whatsoever I was fed a link to “The Dangers of False Archaeology.” Da whut? Danger! Danger! You’ll fly off the road into the sea, or gravity will stop and you’ll be thrown into space!!!!!!! What POSSIBLE “Danger” could there be in ideas, ESPECIALLY as archaeology is the MOST wrong, the MOST often, like 500 times in my lifetime. (And why? …Actually because they’re almost the only Science that will ADMIT it if you beat them about the face and neck often enough, then fix themselves and adopt new theories.)
I dunno. Maybe I was fed that because my total Facebook account is all about gay love, gay sex, and gay history now. 100% of it. Honest!!! Where I put my penis is the most important issue in the universe! Do you want to hear all about it 24/7? I can’t stop talking!!! Help me!!!
‘Tis but to laugh and good thing I’m not easily offended. Imagine if they forced MAGA God-Emperor Pepe memes on all every Facebook account all year.
““Clearly the Western World is in the grip of Satan.”

“Satan Asks LGBTQ Community to Please Tone It Down a Bit”:
WORLD — Facing increased backlash and negative public attention amid what is perceived by many to be an aggressive assault on traditional values, Satan has officially asked the LGBTQ+ community to tone down its efforts.
“Can you guys pump the brakes a little?” asked the Prince of Darkness in a prepared statement from his Midwestern headquarters in downtown St. Louis. “there are ways to go about it that don’t turn all of society against us. Trust me, I’ve been slowly and deceptively poisoning mankind for thousands of years. Moderation is the key!” –BBee
But really, what is “Satan”? Evil? The “Spirit of AntiChrist”? Self, mostly. Everything is relativized to me and my pleasure. “Christ Consciousness” is the spirit of empathy and oneness. So AntiChrist is the spirit of ego and separation. If you’re “All-One” you can’t Take. Why? Because those are MY lands, MY employees, as JB says. They work for ME. They ARE me, they are the source of my fortune. Peace, open trade, they are the source of the motion that creates MY fortune. If my employees and peasants are happy, I’m happy, have no crime, issues, the most “energy” is moving around and being created for “Profit”, that is: abundance.
These guys are the #Opposite of all that. They literally think if they destroy the nation, it will be a wonderful nation to live in. If you increase crime, they will be safer. That is to say, they are literally, definitionally #Insane. #Logos would be order, reason, and they #AntiLogos, chaos, illogic. Counterproductive.
Of course we notice once people start throwing bombs, but it’s true long before then, and it’s easy to stop long before then.
So the existence of “Right” and “Wrong” would be “Order.” It is also “Rules”. You cannot have Chaos with rules, so we must erase all the rules. All the definitions, even men and women, although the person advocating for that IS a man or a woman. They can’t stand being limited, because that would be #Logos, Order, and it would lead inevitably to “Logic” and “Reason” as a self-organizing reality here. It must be destroyed. As a self-organizing, spontaneously-emerging #Order, therefore ALL REALITY, ALL CREATION must be destroyed, killed, annihilated.
#DeathCult. And so here we are. They are #anti-religion, nihilistic death cult, killing everything, rampaging, and yes, attempting to destroy all life on earth if they can discover a way to do so. We were all a-twitter over Saddam’s “Mushroom clouds”; what about our own? Nope. All things are good in service to my ego. However, YOUR ego has to go.
“• Catastrophe Unfolding at Gaza’s Al-Shifa Hospital (Cradle)”
We have heard why Israel is after ONLY the hospital and is so sure:
THEY BUILT THE MASSIVE BUNKERS UNDER IT. Israel did. Themselves. When they were occupying.
…However, again, WHY would Hamas trap themselves in their #Enemy’s fortifications? If you’re like Cheyenne Mountain with the U.S. Military around you you can get away with it. If you’re Geronimo out light-striking settlers, you can’t. They’re diametrically opposite tactics.
But anyway, that’s what Israel is “Thinking” if you can attribute “thinking” to their mechanistic pre-programming. And Duuuuuuuuuuh, Hamas knows it. You don’t think they KNOW you will attack THEIR base? And thereby get yourself on camera like this? All the more reason to blow all the entrances and stay in trench warfare tunnels outside.
Let me put this another way: the existence of BUILDINGS does not make an army base. Meanwhile a Primary School CAN be taken over and become a Military Command Post. A Building is a blank object. So if the bunker Israel built exists but is empty, that’s still a war crime to hit it when injuring civilians. Just as a “Church” is not the building. It could now be a guitar store. And the “Church” may be meeting in someone’s house, or in a field. The “Church” is YOU, not a brick. Same with Hamas.
““How do you give a toy to a child who will not play, who searches the skies for what they know will come?”
So if any of them survive, what do you think they’ll grow up like?
“There are 149 states party to the Genocide Convention. Every one of them has the right to call out the genocide in progress in Gaza and report it to the United Nations.
Makes you think there may not be a local power but a worldwide power that is somehow aligned with Israel, doesn’t it? Otherwise, why would Columbia or Vietnam have any local pressure or leverage not to report? There’s no downside, no one’s arrested, just report so they can begin an inquiry. Right?
“That’s why our commitment to Ukraine today is an investment in our own security,” Biden said”
We had to stop Russia’s amphibious landing parties in Charleston.
“Washington has openly supported Kiev since” … we BOUGHT their country with $6 Billion minimum, told the EU to “Go F- yourself”, then killed every Ukrainian.
Ah those NPR reporters at RT: history always begins 2022. Meanwhile history here BEGINS in 1690 and ends in 1964. Nothing has happened since then.
“..Kiev must seize all territories lost to Russia, including the Crimean Peninsula, or risk disappearing from the world’s map..”
That’s a little overblown, but not wrong. And I can see why you might be agitated, as that is not happening. “Bombshell: Walls are closing in.” First time in 10 years that’s not a lie. Russia is taking in Avdiivka, and they do it 100m at a time, rotating in as many men as it requires to overrun. Ukrainian deployment is a mere 3 days. However, not a second in three days can you sleep as Russia is sending men at you the whole 72 hours. Before you leave, ½ to 1/3 of everyone you shipped in with are dead.
I cannot express the level of gruesome this is. And for the Russians too, I’m sure. Artillery can’t do everything, +60,000 dead so far in their second war of Nazi occupation.
“Ukraine’s “hopes of victory, that were already dim, would falter in oblivion” if the constant flow of weapons and munitions to Kiev from the West were to cease,”
Past tense. Nothing is coming, yet they cannot draw a conclusion. Phrasing FDR: If you laid all the geopolitical experts in the West end to end, they still wouldn’t reach a conclusion.
“But a shooting war is not waged by words but real hardware.” Which we told them. But thank God they won that PR battle, eh?
““Zelensky continues to say that they’re winning, and some of the Western press says Ukraine is winning,”
They’re not kidding if we here tend to read Alt media, New Media: I was fed an article on how “Ukraine is winning!!!” “They’ve taken the East bank of the Dniper river in the first win of their counteroffensive!!!!” (of June, 2023) No irony, no self awareness that perhaps if it takes you 5 months to take 1,000 meters it’s not a rousing sign of victory.
Milei’s quote: Well, I guess he’s not wrong there. Argentina lost the whole country one inch at a time and reduced them from “Better than all Europe” to “Pathetic S—thole” for 100 years running. …I think we’ve tried this experiment again, and it didn’t work again.
But let’s try it here!!! You never know: This Time Will Be Different!
“pundit who insulted other guests, and has shown a tendency to fight with the news media.”
The People want someone who will fight? How gauche, how droll, darling.
“He pledged to dollarize the economy, shut down the central bank”
Er…he may have bad timing there. The dollar must fall LAST, and in fact will go UP: good news! However, in this condition that UP may be about 5 days before the whole worldwide system fails. And OMG he’s an ECONOMIST? And he can actually tie his shoes and think straight? Wow, Argentine education really has fallen if that’s possible.
““The Bank of America, with no directive from the FBI, data-mined its customer base..”
That part is actually legal (surprisingly), however, a “Subpoena” is also not pressing charges. It’s asking them questions.
“near Jan. 6, 2021. Those who had used Bank of America accounts to purchase a firearm, regardless of when or where the transaction took place, were bumped to the top of that list.”
Ummmm…did it not come to your attention at NO JAN 6 PROTESTER WAS ARMED? Zero? None? So how are these two facts relevant and interrelated? Again, given that demographic, ON A NORMAL DAY ABOUT 30,000 OF THEM WOULD BE ARMED. So therefore there is the statistical ABSENCE of 30,000 guns, being about 30,000 cases illustrating the ABSENCE of criminal intent.
NOPE. No one cares. Today is #Opposite Day, where No Guns = All Guns.
“This comes literally just days after the EU decided to license the use of glyphosate for another 10 years. I kid you not.”
Only conclusion is: “It definitely causes cancer? Shut up and take my money!!!”
The weird part is, we offloaded it to the EU like a bunch of suckers. Wtf. And they TOOK it like a bunch of suckers AND ARE STILL HAPPY. Gosh I am in the wrong business. Where can I find a product bad and deadly enough the EU will buy it from me? …This is the EU that had outlawed it previous to now, am I wrong?

Craig Murray: Activating the Genocide Convention
November 19, 2023
What is happening now in Gaza is genocide… depopulation …
There are 149 states party to the Genocide Convention. Every one of them has the right to call out the genocide in progress in Gaza and report it to the United Nations.
In the event that another state party disputes the claim of genocide — and Israel, the United States and the United Kingdom are all states party — then the International Court of Justice is required to adjudicate on “the responsibility of a State for genocide.”
Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of
Approved and proposed for signature and ratification or accession by
General Assembly resolution 260 A (III) of 9 December 1948
Entry into force: 12 January 1951, in accordance with article XIII
Having considered the declaration made by the General Assembly of the United Nations
in its resolution 96 (I) dated 11 December 1946 that genocide is a crime under
international law, contrary to the spirit and aims of the United Nations and condemned
by the civilized world,
Recognizing that at all periods of history genocide has inflicted great losses on
Being convinced that, in order to liberate mankind from such an odious scourge,
international co-operation is required,
Hereby agree as hereinafter provided :
Go and Read the remainder
All this begs the question of why no state has yet invoked the Genocide Convention.
“It is clear for me that in the the situation of Palestine, we have all the criteria of the case about genocide.”

But I am afraid that the truth is that no state cares sufficiently about the thousands of Palestinian children already killed and thousands more who will shortly be killed, to introduce another factor of hostility in their relationship with the United States.
Just as last weekend’s summit in Saudi Arabia, where Islamic countries could not agree an oil-and-gas boycott of Israel, the truth is that those in power really do not care about a genocide in Gaza. They care about their own interests.
Since Israel started cutting basic life sources to Palestinian civilians, why can’t all Arab states boycott Israel & seize oil sales to EU, US, & Israel? This will bring an immediate ceasefire and negotiation for two state solution. The issue is: Arabs are led by stooges chickens pic.twitter.com/wnovlfUq3V

i must confirm and confess what some know and many suspect.
i am an animal
i cannot hate
i search and yet i find
no greed to enliven my mind
Holy Sonnet 10: Death, be not proud
Death, be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;
For those whom thou think’st thou dost overthrow
Die not, poor Death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleep, which but thy pictures be,
Much pleasure; then from thee much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee do go,
Rest of their bones, and soul’s delivery.
Thou art slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poison, war, and sickness dwell,
And poppy or charms can make us sleep as well
And better than thy stroke; why swell’st thou then?
One short sleep past, we wake eternally
And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt dieNovember 20, 2023 at 4:13 pm #147006jb-hbParticipant
From Kunstler today:
“If Israel wanted to do a genocide of Gazans, they’d have razed it decades ago. There are many Israeli Arabs who enjoy more rights than any Arab in an Arab country. The urge to do blanket ethnic genocide is a one-way street, something only barbarians and demons crave.” —Peachy Keenan
What fuckery is this?
—-It’s not an accomplished fact as of decades ago, therefore it cannot be happening now?
—-If it HAD happened decades ago, it couldn’t be happening now, could it?
This would be understood to be comedic satire if it were in Heller’s Catch-22
What is it people in the same headspace as Kunstler are thinking?
…That those carrier groups in the Eastern Mediterranean are determined to attack SOMEONE, but it’s up for grabs WHO they will bomb. 50//50 shot, Palestine or Isreal? So we need to do what we can to tip US sentiment onto the Israel side?
NO. They are afraid those carrier groups might possibly do NOTHING. Or stop doing what they are already doing.
Is this some sort of weird compulsion – someone out there might have BAD but totally inconsequential THOUGHTS about Israel and I can’t stand that? Someone out there might have Big Meanie thoughts and feelings? Someone out there might not AGREE with me on this opinion?
No. It’s a visceral underlying fear that the massive flow of money, arms, shared intelligence, military assistance, intelligence/espionage assistance, economic assistance,. diplomatic assistance – welfare – might stop. Nothing has to make sense to a welfare recipient, the words just have to hopefully have SOME effect, any effect in keeping the gravy train going.

“Why can’t all Arab states boycott Israel.”
Because it’s not up to them, the bankers are in control. Most countries are “incorporated”. That is to say they are in debt to the private federal banks running their own currencies and lending it out to them. From thin air. It’s a faith based system and homage must be paid, no differently than it once was to the Roman empire and later the Vatican. Even the governments are paying taxes, it is just called interest on an idea and nothing more.November 20, 2023 at 7:07 pm #147010RedParticipant
My title is redundant for a reason, since the root of the word radical is the Latin word, radix, meaning root. For I mean to show how the use and misuse of language, its history or etymology, and ours as etymological animals as the Spanish philosopher José Ortega y Gassett called us, is crucial for understanding our world, a world once again teetering on the edge of a world war that will almost inexorably turn nuclear as events are proceeding. If our language is corrupted, as it surely is, and political propaganda flourishes as a result, the correct use of our language and the meaning of words becomes an obligation of anyone who uses them – that is, everyone, especially writers.
The United States government exists to wage war. In its present form, it would crumble without it; and in its present form, it will crumble with it. Only a radical structural change will prevent this. For war-making is at the core of its budget, its raison d’être – 816.7 billion for the Fiscal 2023 National Defense Authorization Act alone – a deficit-financed sum that tells only part of the story. This amount that finances the military-industrial complex and its blood money is for a country that has never been invaded, is bordered by friendly neighbors, and is oceans away from the multitude of countries its leaders attack and call our enemies. The U.S. wages wars around the world because killing is its lifeblood, its structural essence.
In writing of the misuse of language, George Orwell wrote, “It becomes ugly and inaccurate because our thoughts are foolish, but the slovenliness of our language makes it easier for us to have foolish thoughts.” So with these words Orwell slyly places us within the enigma of the chicken and the egg, a conundrum or paradox that relates to my theme in a weird way, but which I will directly ignore.
By radical I do not mean the widespread political usage as in radical-right or radical-left or radical meaning one who plays the role through dress or demeanor. I am using the word in its primary meaningNovember 20, 2023 at 7:21 pm #147011DoraParticipant
