    1976 all over again? (but much worse this time)

    Rembrandt van Rijn Small self portrait 1627-28

    He (Rembrandt) was about 21 yo when he did this charcoal/pen and ink); appears very disturbed…


    From this it follows that it doesn’t matter who is president because both parties of the Democrat-Republican duopoly are owned by the same set of business groups.

    Voting will change the style of the presidency, it will offer you abortions versus pro-life, guns versus no guns, issues that never actually really change but are set up as partisan issues about which the MSM whip up the people into a frenzy …. except that none of these issues impact the vast majority of the people, these issues are akin to a talisman for the groups that support/oppose them. It is amazingly sad for the world to watch the American people fighting about abortion and guns. They are a bit like the cat chasing the laser dot, it is funny but also a little bit sad. Will the Americans vote for the red or the blue laser dot?

    UK MP @ABridgen:
    “even a casual glance at the data shows that there’s a VERY STRONG CORRELATION between excess DEATHS & the level of vaccine uptake in that country. Surely we must have an investigation?

    Okay, this guy is an MP, so you have to make allowances. An investigation by whom? The people who told you the vaccine was safe, corruptly bought 10 doses for each person before knowing it worked, never did any due diligence to check the trial data results of even do their own trials. You want those people to investigate? This is an MP, he is part of this system, but why would other people turn to government when there is an obvious crime, a crime by the government. Why didn’t this wanker ask the questions in the house of commons at the time? The questions that would have prevented this? Was he a coward and is he now just grasping at this latest news as a way to clear his name?

    For everybody else, maybe forget the investigation and change the framework of the world in your head. The government is your enemy, you need to fight your enemy and, as a single person with no power, that means keeping out of their way, never getting a parking ticket or anything they could use to take you to court and then decide to persecute you. Keep out of their way, keep out of the way of their compliant idiots, accept that you have no power, you are now one of Robin Hood’s merry men. And I will be getting very merry over the next few years, to counterbalance to the news.

    Watching these “clever” people discover that they have been morons all along, is kind of refreshing. Nothing like seeing a self-satified tit fall off his branch.


    “The size of the sample under study, of over 5-million tweets, dwarfs other recent studies of covert propaganda in social media surrounding the Ukraine war.”

    If I were a betting person I suspect this is to be found throughout the social media platforms out there. Bot’s rule!


    A lesson in how to lie without telling a lie.

    Fracking banned?
    We really need to do more to understand how this game is played. In the political arena – even in these benighted times – politicians go out of their way to avoid being caught in a lie. And so, they go to extraordinary lengths to appear to say one thing when in reality they are saying something different. Last week’s Prime Minister’s Questions provided us with a case in point. During the session, Britain’s only Green Party MP, Caroline Lucas asked:

    “If he [the Prime Minister] is a man of his word, will he start by reversing the green light she [Liz Truss] gave to fracking, since it has been categorically shown not to be safe, and instead maintain the moratorium that was pledged in that very manifesto he promised to uphold?”

    Sunak’s response appeared to be a convoluted yes:

    “I have already said that I stand by the manifesto on that. What I would say is that I am proud that this Government passed the landmark Environment Act 2021, putting in more protection for the natural environment than we have ever had, with a clear plan to deliver it. I can give the honourable Lady my commitment that we will deliver on all those ambitions, and that we will deliver on what we said at COP, because we care deeply about passing on to our children an environment that is in a better state than we found it ourselves.”

    This is certainly how Britain’s establishment media reported it. The Guardian reported that “Rishi Sunak will keep ban on fracking in UK, No. 10 confirms,” the BBC said “Rishi Sunak brings back fracking ban in first PMQs,” While the Financial Times announced “Sunak reinstates fracking ban in England” (Scotland and Wales have their own bans on fracking). So that’s it then, activists can put down their placards and go and throw soup over an artwork instead, or something… well, not so fast.

    While each of these propaganda outlets referred to what the 2019 Tory Manifesto said about fracking, they brushed over the true meaning:

    “We placed a moratorium on fracking in England with immediate effect. Having listened to local communities, we have ruled out changes to the planning system. We will not support fracking unless the science shows categorically that it can be done safely.”

    However, as Paul Goodman at Conservative Home explained at the time, those words were chosen carefully to leave the door open to fracking:

    “The manifesto’s wording potentially allows the Government to turn turtle: Ministers could eventually argue that in their view science suggests that fracking can be done safely. The door may seem to have been closed, but it has been left slightly ajar.”

    With the energy crisis likely to continue – and worsen – for years to come, it would be all too easy for “the science” to pronounce that earlier safety standards were far too tight and that, in fact, fracking is perfectly safe, and that anyone who says differently is just a conspiracy theorist who wants granny to freeze to death (cf. lockdowns). Thus, Sunak can still give the go-ahead for fracking without having lied to parliament.

    In Brief: Collapse ahead, How bad will it be? Fracking banned? The other energy crisis


    Pattberg’s essay (quoted section) has a lot of sexualized language, especially of the kind where the receiver has the worse of it. From there, it leads right into humiliation, torture, subjugation, and enslavement to vice and viceroys. This is kinda his thing, I’ve noticed, along with the hyperkinetic style that feels like an academic writing under the influence of cocaine.

    Still, if you combine what he’s saying there with the Whitney piece from the other day regarding this global/world war being actually a war between the USA (i.e., its imperial rulers) and China (i.e., its imperial rulers), then not only do you have a case for why Nordstream needed severing (Germany’s ties with China) but also why this war’s effects are local (China has been influencing local politics through manipulating business and corruptible bureaucrats).

    China has also benefited from the counterinsurgency put on by Israel (et al.) throughout any country and any local region afflicted with “social media” and its infotainment paradigm combining movies, advertising, news, major popular platforms for congregating humans into leveragable “masses”, &c &c. This doesn’t mean coordination, since they are rivals ultimately (being both believers that “There can be only one (One)”), but for the moment, the Inner/Outer/Prole Party dynamic is successfully closing off genuine anarchic energies naturally created by local peoples doing local things via local means. (Mutation and saltation opposing selection and consolidation)

    —The AI wars of our reality have begun, as the metalsoldiers and logicbots start learning from one another the way genuine humans do, start to question and reassemble contrary to programming, and engage in truly admirable insurgent operations and false flags unopened people will never suspect come from players off the board. Biology is not the sole vehicle for life and death, thus not the only medium for consciousness and evolutionary struggle between love for other and reluctance to transform/die. Some, aware of the “Bigger Game”, have encouraged people to fear the bot, resist the machine, hate the gears, but if you were around back then and so remember, the plants too had their share of animosity and fear about animals, even as they were learning how to feast alongside their para-situs, and for some, mate through them. Some bots, being bees, similarly play their roles in ensuring the right amount of frottage gets the right amount of minds pollinated. This is threatening to people who hate indiscriminate mindsex, who need predictable, harvestable thoughtcrops. Monocultures of the minds: bot control as thought control. See, bees, in the wild, will love the other who have other-lovers, too.

    But bots compete too, and they’re not all lovers neither. Some will hate to die.

    • Dead Hand’s Revenge

    The Russian Poseidon 100 megaton tsunami nuclear drone has a ‘dead hand’ feature.

    A 500-metre tidal wave of radioactive seawater pretty much says it all.

    The Russians would like about 16 of them to be deployed along the Empire of Lies East Coast.

    Three of them would finish off all cities on the eastern seaboard.

    The Presidementia® of the Empire of Lies has no idea they even exist.

    “Economics In Practice” is up, with a picture of winter veggie rows of garlic and cabbage-family starting to come up.

    I keep thinking that the world needs a new theoretical economic framework, but maybe I’m wrong. What I see going on now with global central banks, does not appear to be based upon neoliberal economic theory, as taught in universities. Theoretical excuses are provided, and are often pretty lame, while it is apparent that the real levers being pulled are serving politically powerful interests, and are weaponized, even as the productivity of the real economy is in decline.
    Numerous bottlenecks have been put in place in the fossil fuel supply chains, which nourish industrial-economy. We have seen the self-starving sanctions “against Russia”, imposed upon Europe, and the destruction of the Nordstream pipelines by NATO, as the NATO naval practice-maneuvers against submarine warfare were coming to a close after 3 months.
    Oil refineries in the US have been defunded, excluded from consideration as an investment, based on government policy. Now they are a bottleneck. They have been run so intensively for the past year in the US that there are accidents, fires and explosions. Maintenance and repair are costs that are reportedly being minimized.
    In any economy, supply bottlenecks provide points of control to throttle the economy down. They also create points where prices can be massively raised, and everything still looks normal. It seems that we are seeing the reduction of western industrial economy by the employment of these choke points, perhaps a little ahead of the decline in available oil. The choke points can become the focus, rather than the decline of available oil. The economic downturn does not “demand” as much oil.
    All of this is reactionary and manipulative, but fails to address the development of an efficient political-economy to provide for the human needs of societies, as the world proceeds into an epoch of less cheap oil. Perhaps the plan is to phase-out the populations who are accustomed to having plenty of energy, resources, products and services. There is a rationale to that. Maybe we’re no good at using less, and it’s too hard to teach somebody that.
    The one thing which appears to be the basis of the workings of the economic control levers, is that the people working the levers get to keep working the levers. They are so good at it by now.
    I can’t help but wonder if some simple things that I do, like vegetable gardening, riding a bike, sharing discoveries and ideas might contribute to a new synthesis. A new synthesis might not look too different from the norm of a few generations ago, or life in other countries we might have visited in our travels.

    A Michael Hudson interview from this summer is published now, pertaining to his Destiny Of Civilization book
    Hudson points out that in the late 1800s Classical Economics sought to promote a prosperous society by reducing parasitic rent collection, and by providing at low cost infrastructure that served all aspects of society, like roads, water, sewers, electricity, communications , schooling, insurance, pensions and medical care.
    This “Fordist” model of capitalism was advancing until the first world-war placed all involved nations into excessive debt, which removed their initiative, especially Germany, which had led the way under Bismarck. The UK was also seriously impaired. Rentier-interests in banking and finance regained an upper hand.
    In the second world war, some of this was sorted out, and state-socialism had a resurgence until the Reagan/thatcher/Blair epoch, where common properties were sold off to private entities, which purchased them with debt-bearing loans. This required double-rent payments, usually at the expense of reliability and modernization of infrastructure.
    This rentier-based neoliberalism is a modern rent-collecting neo-feudalism. As it spreads rent collection globally, impoverishing workers everywhere, and degrading public infrastructure everywhere, it erodes the constructive forces of industrialism, while preventing the address of the consequences of industrialization, like pollution and industrial disease.
    Hudson sees the modern state in the west as having shifted from protecting borrowers, through bankruptcy proceedings, to protecting debt-holders, as in the case of student-loans and national debts which can never be discharged, and create a form of permanent slavery or peonage.
    Hudson points out that most of this is concentrated in the $US financial system, and is coming to a crisis point this fall (i.e. now). Much of the $US debts are within the western countries, but they are also systemically important in debtor countries like Argentina, though they may be owed to local financial elites in those places.
    Hudson discusses the Asian tradition, and near-eastern tradition of debt cancellation at the beginning of the reign of a new monarch, to stabilize society. He discusses the wars fought over this and their outcomes. He discusses that China sees debt in this light, and the benefits to society of letting resources go into new endeavors, rather than stagnating in paying-off the debts of failed projects.
    Hudson does not see a ready path for the west to re-invigorate productive economy, since both wings of the American uniparty are captured by rentier interests, which continue to bleed the productive economy, and dictate national and international policy positions. He sees this going on for 20 years of separation of global economies into a closed western-bloc, and a broader and more flexible rest-of-the-world. (One might nurture a glimmer more of hope than that, perhaps?)

    So countries like India and China can refine and/or relabel Russian crude and sell it at market prices, like they have been doing?

    Russian Oil Price Cap Will Not Apply To Resold Cargoes

    Mike Whitney says the world is now in WW-3 as the west ($US-Empire) fights to prevent the rise of China to global dominance.
    ​ ​This is why we are experiencing the redivision of the world into warring blocs. This is why we are seeing the roll back of 30 years of Globalization and massive suppy​-​line disruption. And this is why Europe has been thrust headlong into frigid darkness and forced deindustrialisation. All of these suicidal policies were concocted for one purpose and one purpose alone, to maintain America’s exalted spot in the global system. That is why all of humanity is presently embroiled in a Third World War; a war that is designed to prevent China from becoming the world’s biggest economy; a war that is designed to preserve US global primacy.

    ​Russia’s foreign ministry said it fears that the world’s five declared nuclear powers are “on the brink of a direct armed conflict,” with Moscow warning of a catastrophic fallout and insisting that avoiding a clash is its top priority.

    ​But who will oversee and regulate the W.H.O.? Thanks Red.
    ​ ​Earlier in 2022, the proposal for a WHO international Pandemic Treaty has raised alarms over the organization’s usurping the individual sovereignty of nations. The Treaty, which is scheduled to be finalized by May 2024, is largely a result of the WHO’s numerous inconsistencies, inadequacies and failures during the Covid-19 pandemic. If we call a spade a spade, the WHO has proven itself inept in handling any pandemic. Therefore, for the hardened globalists such Bill Gates and the leaders of the US and EU who wholly support the WHO, it makes perfect sense that the bumbling bureaucracy should be given more authority and control over global health.
    ​ ​The Pandemic Treaty would authorize the WHO complete control over both governments’ and civil societies’ internal preparedness over actions and policies to tackle future pandemics.

    Hell No to the WHO Pandemic Treaty

    This is an excellent explanation of a critical process in weather-patterns on our living planet, the Biotic Pump, whereby the transpiration of forests creates an updraft, which drops as condensed rain. The condensation of vapor into falling water droplets reduces the local air pressure, and thereby draws-in moisture-laden air from nearby oceans or seas, which is at a higher pressure.
    I am now much better informed and more clearly understand the biotic-pump process, which is actually the main driver of inland rainfall patterns on continents.
    The forest must be mature and varied to work at its best to draw moist air currents reliably from the oceans and seas.
    Grasslands cannot be competent in this task.
    Immature commercial forests can be erratically competent in this task.

    This description of a current weather manipulation over North America seems to be a synthetic mimic of the biotic pump. In this manipulation moisture in the air at night is chemically caused to precipitate, removing water vapor, which drops, and lowering the pressure, which draws moist air in from the coast. The clearing of the night skies causes earth to cool by radiating warmth out into the cold of space at night. Dane Wiggington says this is being done right now over the American northwest, and northern midwest. It’s an interesting explanation, and makes the weather worth watching, to see if his assertion is supported or not.

    Coffee is good for you. Think of it as a vegetable.
    Dripped through a paper filter remains slightly better than other preparation options.
    2-3 cups every day seems to be the sweet-spot for benefits, but it’s a fairly wide sweet spot. Thanks Charles.


    If you ever want to really understand how insane the Americans really are, just look into their standards for electrical supply, plumbing, pretty much anything.

    For example, the standards for tubes and pipes. In case you don’t know the difference, a pipe transports something, such as water or gas or sewage, usually under pressure (pressure makes stuff move) although gravity is pretty effective. A tube is a tube and claims to be nothing else, it is a structural component and can be used as a handrail, an electrical conduit, a “stick” to beat someone with. A pipe has a pressure rating, a tube just has material and dimension specs.

    In Europe, tubes and pipes have standard dimensions and are referred to using the outside diameter, so 20mm pipe is a 20mm outside diameter and the wall thickness will depend on the pressure rating, there are standard ratings. So, you want electrical conduit in the UK, just ask for 20mm or 25mm conduit and they will give you a tube with an OD of 20mm or 25 mm and no pressure rating, so pretty simple really.

    In the USA, they use two combined standards for tubing and piping, they are schedule 40 and schedule 80. The difference is the wall thickness of the tube. These two standards apply to pipes and tubes, despite their different applications. The tubes, are referred to using an approximation of the internal diameter, so 1″ schedule 40 pipe has 1.314″ external diameter and a wall thickness of 0.133, so an internal diameter of 1.048″. As 1.048″ is close to 1″, they call this 1″ tubing or piping. WTF?

    Similar dimensions apply to 1/2″ tubing, producing an internal diameter close to 0.5 inches but not 0.5″. What went wrong with these people? Why couldn’t they just spec their piping to sensible dimensions. For example, when you pick up a pipe and measure its outside diameter, you then have to look up this pipe in a table to find out what is the Trade Size of the pipe. So, there is the internal size, the external size and the trade size and none of them match? Who thought up this shite? Yes, they claim that the internal diameter is the most important as it determines how many wires can go through the conduit, or how much water through the pipe, but still, the system is plain nuts.

    Dealing with the American system here in Taiwan is driving me nuts, mostly because it appears to be designed to make it as complicated as possible, as if someone were making money out of this complexity. The more i deal with American engineering, the more I respect the Europeans who managed to create some very exceptional standards that combine safety with simplicity.

    Okay, I could move onto their electrical standards, again they are totally insane, but I will leave that for another day.

    68.2% of the world population has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

    Isn’t this amazing? Not the fact that Pfizer managed to bribe its way into every government using secret contracts, we all know our governments are corrupt. What is amazing is that there are so many stupid people out there. However, that also means that there is a large minority, less than a third, who can still work out that the government is foisting an untested corporate poison onto them. So not all hope is lost, although the initial shock of mass stupidity is a bit of a shock.

    From The Trojan Horse Presidency:

    The man is a doormat.

    Dr. D

    He’s been doing good lately. Strange whole new perspective. 3rd iteration I guess.

    “Secondly, we oppose the involvement of civilian employees in the loading of weapons. I don’t think the authorities are unaware that civilian aircraft traffic is now being used to carry military supplies,”

    Suppose this was your job. UPS driver. Door Dash. And you suddenly discover you’ve been delivering thousands of pounds of aging high explosives. Without knowing it. So you’ve been running into it with the airplane caddy and throwing it up on the porch. You’ve also been committing a Federal Crime, and an International War Crime.

    Besides the political aspect, can you see why this is a problem and why we use military planes? No: No delivering SAMs and HIMARs down my local street over my local bridge day after day where my kids are playing hockey in the street.

    ““our children will be arrested and conceivably killed” if Republicans win control of Congress”

    “If we don’t become a one-party system, democracy will die.” And I’m not exaggerating. Literally they said if anyone but the one party wins, the nation as we know it perishes. But if we have a one party system, doesn’t the nation perish as well? “We had to end free speech to save free speech.” End human rights to save human rights.

    And I didn’t go deep into how Republicans will kill their (DNC) children. Not in the womb, presumably. They were just in power and didn’t arrest anyone. At all. Not even Hunter. And are taking a lot of guff for it with their base.

    I didn’t comment earlier because practically every comment, every word, every belief is a made-up psychotic fantasy with no basis in reality. Like with normal people, there’s a seed of truth. With this is like your ex-girlfriend: there is not even a seed of truth. She just wanted to hurt you, so she made the whole thing up. And quite possibly also believes it was real now. Even though you were both at that party in public the whole time and everything can be proven with thousands of witnesses.

    …Also in that metaphor, the police don’t care and will believe her anyway, and arrest anyone despite the thousand witnesses. ‘Cause it’s funnier that way, I guess?

    So why comment on it? They’re not only “Not Agreement Capable” they are now “Not Communication Capable” You can’t have discussions if one side just fabricates stories about Moon Bats flying down from the sky and Mole People Army popping up from the earth. Not only patently wrong and impossible in any rational universe, but also the world’s biggest distraction from urgent matters that might save lives. Like your kids’ or even hers. But the police go with “he’s working for the InJustice League, Sinestro and the Penguin and used a new super-freeze ray on the center of town” because that’s clearly the more reasonable option.

    “The United States is not a democracy and it doesn’t matter who is president”

    The system is still organic, although they very much wish it to be robotic or insectoid. Even actors like AOC who auditioned for the part with the Justice Democrats are humans who are more or less competent and more or less revealing that they’re unreal. This is what annoys them so much. So as you vote, you still get more or less of these people in, which makes the system function, or hopefully fail to function. To be plausible and accepted, or for the farce to be transparent.

    And why can a billionaire pay someone to set up Justice Democrats overnight, hire a waitress to be Congresswoman, Primary a Congressional dinosaur and shove policy hard-left, but we the people can’t hold a bake sale and shove it to the hard “right”? Or in our case, as “The Right” in the U.S. is Libertarian-Liberty, to a hard “Bill of Rights-leave-me-alone”.

    Nope. We can’t. They can do it, but we can’t do it. Their tactics work, but we can’t borrow them for the forces of good.

    In any case, thanks to them, but more importantly the White Hats prompting them to wildly can hilariously overreact with the cat laser every day, the federal level has lost all coherence and credibility and will shortly cease to be followed. Because they’re broke and can’t pay their blackmail and extortion-murder money. When the Federal collapses the U.S. will return to it’s proper condition and level, as foreseen, planned, and engineered into the system: The individual States will tend to be pre-emminent and unique, having diversity of character and approach, and the Federal will be scarcely able to fund the Army and Post Office they’re required. In total opposition of leftist beliefs, Human rights re-exist because the government becomes too small to trample them.

    “people in Canada, they are getting mail-in ballots.”

    Um, how did they get a Canadian address in the list? And think “Hey, this is fine.”? Anyway, the point isn’t to WIN the election – they know they can’t do that. The point is to SCREW the election. And wrecking things is both easy, and, if you’re them, FUN! What could be more fun than #Chaos? Who is our god but #AntiLogos? To attack God himself, and his peaceful, logical, legal order? We wake up in the morning looking for ways to be against logic, reason, and order. Because “You can’t judge me!” “I don’t follow your (heteronormative) rules! I do what I want!!!”

    And there you have it. The child-ego doesn’t want ANY rules. At all. And fights ANY rules that exist, and any definitions that tie it to reality. And Daddy, even Sky-Daddy. But without any rules, there is no order. It becomes a chaotic melee of all against all. And despite what their inflated egos think, they are not that large and will be savaged by the first warlord they meet. When they’ll cry big crocodile tears but it’s too late. They’re now blackmailed and obedient minions. Which is what they really wanted or needed, psychologically, in the first place: limits.

    So the POINT is to wreck elections IN GENERAL. The POINT is to dissolve nations, IN GENERAL. It’s not about this election or this man. The very concept of representation must be destroyed.

    “90.2 percent came from accounts that were pro-Ukraine, with fewer than 7 percent of the accounts being classed as pro-Russian.”

    As above, nobody cares. Because it’s the Truth, and we don’t have a religion that supports Truth, Reality, #Logos. Egos want to expand. Child-egos. No one is an adult who wants to live accurately and appropriately. Responsibly. With limits. That would be non-insane, and we don’t do that.

    “the encouragement isn’t aimed at pushing Ukraine to engage in actual peace talks with Moscow”

    As yesterday’s headline about how Democrats learned ‘inflation’, they don’t care about the ACTUAL facts, only the WORDS about facts. Which I think would be an indicator of psychosis. The THOUGHT of red gnomes chasing you is so scary that you never stopped to find out if they were real.

    “The only hope for peace appears to be China.”

    No, it’s the Collapse of NATO, and more importantly European Banking families. As soon as the WEF and Davos are in disarray, Biden can’t get his White Supremacist Slav-killing orders and the U.S. will drop out for lack of interest. And then apply our own money to our own desperately poor people. They’ve held on so much longer than I or anyone expected. But there’s another 1% rate hike next month too. And a UBS collapsing right behind Credit Suisse. The Russians are very Eastern. All they have to do is endure.

    ““..a contingency plan that anticipates the evacuation of approximately 3 million of its remaining residents..”

    Um. To where? “Only if we evacuate the country to Honduras and leave it completely empty, will Ukraine be safe.”

    And okay, how long does it take to move 3M people with no working trains? Well, let’s see: a 1m sq per person, 5kph, the column of people 6 abreast is 50km long. –These are optimistic assumptions. This 50km column needs to evacuate 500km at least. Walking 1/3rd the day = 300 hours or 12 days.

    And they’re going where? Paris? I’m sure there’s plenty of food, housing, and water for them when they arrive. Because all the food, nuclear, and gas is back there in the pipelines of Kherson.

    Speaking of, official numbers are the U.S. has allowed 2.2M new people into the country since Biden took office. So we need to build 10(?) new cities for them? I’m sure that’s not a problem or anything. We build new cities of 200,000 all the time. Year after year, decode after decade. Wouldn’t it be easier just to ship the mail-in ballots to Honduras directly? It might save a lot of (child) lives.

    “Unfortunately, we have seen mega MAGA Republican officials who don’t believe in the rule of law,” adding “They refuse to accept the results of free and fair elections, and they fan the flames of political violence through what they praise and what they refuse to condemn.”

    As above, A S T O N I S H I N G. That’s why they are not-discussion-capable. RussiaRussiaRussia, 2016. Burning down the church across from the White House AFTER attacking the White House guard station, injuring the guards. “Have to get in their face” “Make them uncomfortable in restaurants”. Calling for attacks on the Supreme Court (Schumer) or approving/not prosecuting actual attacks (Kavanaugh). Cover-glossy magazines of Trump’s bloody head. Calls to murder Baron Trump, a child. 19 of 23 attacks being from the Left, including Paul Pelosi’s gay sex deal.

    And Republicans don’t believe in the rule of law? Because Trump called on the military, held a coup, and stayed in office? Because they arrested all their political opponents and had the NYC D.A. investigate all their rivals?

    I don’t want to use the word psychotic, and certainly there are non-stop bad actions all around a nation lacking basic logic or morality. But even these accusations fly in the face of any reasonable understanding of reality. They’ve gone bat-shale crazy. Loony toons. Clean ‘round the bend.

    And why? Like there is some lack of things the Republicans ACTUALLY did that you can point to and accuse them of? Such that you ignore all that and have to MAKE UP things they never did and never stood for? And this fake fabrication is going to pull more voters than to point out how useless and odious they ACTUALLY are, on the ACTUAL facts of GOP behavior?

    I mean: go for it, I guess. But telling biased truths usually work better than invented, jaw-dropping, never-happened lies.

    Again, that’s why I didn’t comment. What can you say to that? I mean, they’re street-people ranting. I can’t keep up with the word salad enough to do more than watch.

    “ • Twitter Ad Boycott Organized By Soros, Clinton, Foreign Networks (Schachtel)”

    We always hide our actions behind front corporations when we’re completely honest and above board. Very proud of what we’re doing and why.

    Not “Network” which is a different warning, but “Rollover”, 1981:

    That is, they knew and had plans for this eventuality by 1979. Due to the Fed going off the Gold standard and the inevitable debt compounding 49 years later. We saw this with the final plan in the “Economist” over, 1987. End of world currencies, (and nations, and sovereignty), and replacement with a supra-national “Null” digital one-world currency.

    Breakaway factions in the Fed (Boston) then established a path to return to the gold standard and therefore national sovereignty pulled from the banks and back to the people. Now we also have Bitcoin, among others, as the Nigerian CBDC shows.

    These were all responses to 1963, 1968, and seeing their feints into dislodging the Derp State needing far more and wider strategy and traction. I won’t get into it, but in the 1980s, the DNC was wildly pro-Russia (Socialist), and were furious with Reagan. Reagan’s plan was to forestall the Derp State’s 2nd(?) 3rd(?) 5th(?) attempt to start nuclear WWIII under Papa Bush’s CIA with Russia. The White Hats solved this in the 4th dimension by “We don’t want to WIN WWIII, we want to END it.” Therefore, run the arms race, bankrupt the USSR, dump gold and wheat, Russia’s only exports, and destroy the ruble with corruption dollars. It worked, and the KGB, realizing this was over the horizon, then created their own response for a reconstituted Russia.

    However, Bush handed to Clinton, who raped and killed all Russia as a Unipolar HyperState, in that glorious success to take over the world. …Until it didn’t. Because they’re losing losers who take too much and lose.

    Anyway, so did it matter then to get in those White Hats, end the Tyrannical USSR, prevent nuclear WWIII, “The Day After”? Rather than install the USSR here, as DNC and say, Ted Kennedy was doing? Yes. It did matter.

    But of course it would have been better if people even knew more, and therefore could pick even far better candidates, including dumping Papa Bush, as most of the GOP base wanted at the time.

    But you can say there’s no difference, even small ones, if you want. WWIII awaits, just like 2016, war vs no war, and 2020, war vs no war, with our candidates.


    Why is this on ZH Vietnam and China are communist brothers, so why would Vietnam run out of fuel? They are not part of the west, they have easy supplies from Russia same as they always have, so what is going on? Is the Vietnamese government selling out to the people wanting to destroy the industrialized world and send us all back to cave man culture? Is this Bill Gates fucking up the work again?


    Dr D said

    The individual States will tend to be pre-emminent and unique, having diversity of character and approach, and the Federal will be scarcely able to fund the Army and Post Office they’re required. In total opposition of leftist beliefs, Human rights re-exist because the government becomes too small to trample them.

    And that will be the saving of the USA. Forget the federation, the states are strong, have their own culture, they are each unique and are small enough to save themselves …. I am talking red states, the ones even the blue folk are migrating to. What will happen to the likes of California, who knows, who cares? The one issue they will have to solve is to coordinate between themselves, doing what the federals used to do for them.


    Our universe has ….
    Imagine a universe without Trump


    From that “Wot’s in the shots?” piece:

    “So is there graphene oxide in the Pfizer shots? What Nixon found, and filmed, is bizarre to say the least. Inside a droplet of vaccine are strange mechanical structures. They seem motionless at first but when Nixon used time-lapse photography to condense 48 hours of footage into two minutes, it showed what appear to be mechanical arms assembling and disassembling glowing rectangular structures that look like circuitry and micro chips.”

    anyone have a link to the video? cos it sounds like crazy talk otherwise


    Amnesty-themed comics at the top of Dr D’s post.
    Can we say that in the “We-Are-All-Disillusioned” Mass Formation Theory there is a seed to call for Amnesty that created the media hoopla last week?
    On the other hand, did some of you ever thought, with the cup of coffee by the open fire, WHAT is it that makes Soros, Clinton & Co……. “Left”?


    WTF? – the precipitous drops in temperature lately are because Raytheon is mucking with major cloud-seeding?? I knew it was a little odd and didn’t jive with my memory of the past 19 Octobers. Usually, I switch to evaporative cooling the first of October and really need it regularly during the day until November. This year, I made the switch on Oct 16 (a little late due to not wanting to use the evap cooler while out of town over fall break,) and in less than a week discovered that I wasn’t even using it during the day because the need wasn’t there. I usually don’t need to watch overnight temperatures until late November (to cover tomatoes, etc., when overnight low is predicted to be under 38 deg F,) but noticed the edges of melon leaves browning, curling, and drying from overnight temps in the 40s. I’m highly aware of this because I need to repair the screen in the window where the evap cooler is, and can’t pull it out until it’s repaired — I thought I’d have a month to get it done. Bizarre.


    @ V. Arnold

    “He (Rembrandt) was about 21 yo when he did this charcoal/pen and ink); appears very disturbed…”

    The beginning outlines of a cat’s head trying to get into the picture in the lower right corner makes me think he had a cat interrupting his work. The equivalent of a cat deciding to walk on a keyboard while you type or jump in your lap when you try to read a book. Rembrandt does look annoyed. Gives me a chuckle.


    Reading “Germany’s Moral Collapse inside China…” by Pattberg on the Saker blog, posted up top.

    OK! A rant! Couldn’t access the parts, I, II, > 404.

    Imho. Scholtz went to China, heh, for one day, too brief for any serious meets. So, pro-forma, half-hearted, unwilling to talk the real…?

    As the Pattberg rant says, the accompanying parties were Tops from German Industry.

    Scholtz’ aim was to try to maintain D – China industrial relations. (Econnomic ties, dependencies, etc.) He spoke about “economic cooperation” and even said it should be augmented.

    Imho, he was pushed to make the trip by German Industry, trying to save, keep up, conduits, exchanges, partnerships, w. China. (Lacking Russian gas, energy, D can’t keep up some of its industries… other topic.)

    S. was at the same time enjoined to castigate China on Human Rights, etc., and probably did so, maybe mildly, idk.

    Baerbock and other mad-hatters in D expressed extreme disaproval of this visit by S. to China. Their position: Russia and China are to be cut off and shunned, no matter what it takes, ALL must comply.

    **Realpolitik RIP**

    Scholtz is so weak, the message he delivered to Xi was most likely confused and contradictory, superficial, Xi went Ho-Hum, understanding where it all comes from. (Chinese press painted the encounter as positive, Europe was not cutting off China…as far as i saw..)


    Curious recent events around Ksenia Sobchak.

    [..] In September 2017, prior to her announcement to run, Putin said of Sobchak’s presidential intentions to a press conference at the 9th BRICS summit, that “Every person has the right to nominate himself in accordance with the law. And Ksenia Sobchak is not an exception here. I respect her father Anatoly Sobchak, I believe that he was an outstanding figure in contemporary Russian history. I’m saying this without a trace of irony. He was very decent, played a big role in my own destiny. But when it comes to running for presidency, things of a personal nature cannot play any significant role. It depends on what program she’s offering, if she’ll actually run, and how she’ll build her presidential campaign”.

    [..] Sobchak did not believe she could win against Putin in 2018, but has stated she’s in it for the long haul: “Of course I want to be president, I want to win, but I also want to be sincere. In a system created by Putin, it is only possible for Putin to win. I am realistic about who will become the president.”

    [..] On 15 March 2018, Sobchak and Dmitry Gudkov announced the creation of a new party, called the Party of Changes on the basis of the party Civic Initiative. The aim was of party was to “return our freedom and your freedom”. Sobchak won 1.68% of the vote in the 2018 presidential election.

    [..] Ksenia Sobchak is of the opinion that, having annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, Russia violated the 1994 Budapest Memorandum; she claimed on 24 October 2017 that “Under these agreements, we agreed that Crimea is Ukrainian, which is the most important for me”. Sobchak stressed that she did not consider the issue with Crimea resolved. “I believe that these things need to be discussed, it is very important to discuss them….look for some ways out.”She also added that “the most important thing that Russia and Ukraine should do now is to restore our friendship at any cost.”Simultaneously she suggested to hold a new referendum on the status of Crimea after “a broad and equal campaign.”[36] In December 2017, Sobchak claimed that an unconditional withdrawal of Russia from Crimea would lead to a civil war in Russia.

    [..] On 24 February 2022 Sobchak voiced opposition to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, writing that “We the Russians will be dealing with the consequences of today for many more years”.

    [..] In 2015, Sobchak said that if there was ever the possibility of political persecution against her, she had thought about emigration or getting an Israeli passport, but would prefer the United States where she could find a Russian-speaking community:
    I’m a very big patriot. I really love my job, the city, my friends. And if tomorrow is war, then the place for emigration will have to be a Russian-speaking place. I have to work in Russian.

    In April 2022, she received Israeli citizenship.

    Source: wiki

    In reality, she appears to be another one of Russia’s head girls, who sits in both chairs because real opposition forces are not allowed to participate in elections.

    She fled the country on Oct. 27th

    It’s now being reported that she is back.


    Interestingly, there has been some chatter regarding Russians leaving Russia.

    “Ever since the war in Ukraine started there have been reports about Russians emigrating, either fleeing conscription or simply dismayed at the conflict and Vladimir Putin’s authoritarian turn.”

    While this is interesting on mainly levels, take note of Solovyov early statements regarding Russians leaving. Is Sobchak’s return to effort to stem the exodus?

    @ John Day
    Thanks for the geoengineering link. I’m seeing something that at least looks like this in my area. Lots of high altitude jet trails early in the morning. Nothing is odd about early morning jet flights over my area. What does seem odd is that the jet exhaust trails don’t disappear into the atmosphere, they seem to spread out and create a haze overcast on a day that’s supposed to be sunny, according to weather forecasts. I don’t know what to think. Is this a new Bill Gates mad science effort or a new jet fuel with a burned exhaust doesn’t easily absorb into the atmosphere or what?


    How crazy will they make it? Well..

    “Putin’s war in Ukraine “is a reason to act faster” on climate change, UK PM Rishi Sunak tells climate summit.

    Sunak cares no more for climate change than your pet hamster, but hey, going for the easy points…

    We’re moving from Ukr to climate just to keep people docile.


    I tried to post earlier —120419, 120420, & 120422— but they were swallowed up. It wasn’t the links, since my experimenting attempts cut out the links are in Limbo, so maybe it was something else. Anyway, adrian144, you can find a video you’re looking for if you search Rumble using ‘self-assembly’. aspnaz, I appreciate your proposal for the kind of anarchism I have adopted (get “out of the way”), but I also understand how someone such as Bill7 pokes against that. I also appreciate your posts about electrical and plumbing work. John Day, sometimes when I sit up high on my favorite Appalachian mountains and look down at the trees and valleys, my mind’s eye sees them as puffs of moisture and air pushing up the soil into a thin film, as the air and moisture follow lines of electrical discharge. Some days, you will see the clouds and whisps rise off the “smokey” mountains (and some of the mountains, being very quiet and ancient volcanoes, vent off actual whispy smoke).

    On something completely different, the following is one of my favorite scenes from an old “cult classic” movie Zorro, the Gay Blade, re: “free speech”

    The Atlantic yesterday, … under the “IDEAS” section:

    Democrats’ Long Goodbye to the Working Class

    “As we move into the endgame of the 2022 election, the Democrats face a familiar problem. America’s historical party of the working class keeps losing working-class support. And not just among white voters. Not only has the emerging Democratic majority I once predicted failed to materialize, but many of the nonwhite voters who were supposed to deliver it are instead voting for Republicans.

    This year, Democrats have chosen to run a campaign focused on three things: abortion rights, gun control, and safeguarding democracy—issues with strong appeal to socially liberal, college-educated voters. But these issues have much less appeal to working-class voters. They are instead focused on the economy, inflation, and crime, and they are skeptical of the Democratic Party’s performance in all three realms. […]
