A Faith Based Community

Vladimir Golstein

One American wit imagined that there is a reality- or fact-based community in the United States.  Where did he find it, and what was he smoking?

But here are clear signs by which you can identify the members of the Faith Based Community, the loyal followers of Tertullian’s “Credo quia absurdum.”

1.  They believe that Trump is an alien body of American Politics, the ultimate embodiment of evil, brought to these blessed shores from afar. In the manner of a virus or something.

2.  The main agents responsible for unleashing Trump upon Americans are Russians. In fact, the real name of Trump is Daniil Trampov. He is just one of those Manchurian Candidates created in the secret KGB labs to wreak havoc upon otherwise peace loving, trusting, and never violent Americans who even view guns as toys and collect them in their glass cabinets like others collect exotic dolls.

3.  It is only those Russians and other authoritarians who kill people. And they do it on mass scale. Never in dozens, always in millions. Peace loving Americans, on the other hand, just shoot an unarmed man here, a few school-children there, or bomb a small wedding somewhere, but never on the scale of these authoritarian SOBs.

4.  Miraculously, all other nations engaged in mass-butchery, like Germans, Ukrainians or Poles, immediately become peace-loving, democratic and helpless victims of authoritarian Russians the minute they turn themselves into American servants. From SOBs they become SODs — Sons of Democracy, or Saudis, for short.  The same applies to anyone, no matter how outrageous his actions or views are. As long as this person says, “Down with Trump” — all his sins are washed off, and he becomes a born again SOD.

5.  People living in Democracies have real problems: raising children, paying bills, making a living. Those who live under evil dictatorships, like Russians, don’t have any problems — their dictators take care of their lives and deaths — consequently, the only thing left for Russians or Chinese to do is to interfere in the American way of life. They interfere day and night, face to face and over internet, on social media and in public elections. It is them Russians who’ve taught Americans hate each other. Just look at their literature: War and Peace, Crime and Punishment, Fathers and Children. It is always division, always discord.

6.  Americans and Western people in general, have only one protector from these evil interference, NATO, and its two reliable and sparkling clean civilian branches: mass media and security agencies. If any of these branches blames evil authoritarians for interfering, installing Trumpov into White House, or doing any other sort of mischief — trust them!

7.  The only person that equals Trumpov in villainy is his one time associate, Flynnov. Caught red-handed and forced to confess that he’s met the Russian Ambassador — and now oh, horror of horrors — released from eternal damnation by another Trumpov associate, William Barr, i.e. Vladimir Barrov.

8.  The duty of all peace loving Americans is to put on the mask, tin-foil-pussy hat, and lock themselves up in the basement to prevent the virus from spreading.  Yet, it is Russians who agitate Americans, and Trumpov in particular, to get back to the streets and into the sunlight. First, Russians killed their own people, now they are after Americans. That should be resisted.

9.  The leader of the resistance is Joe Biden. He’s been on the lockdown, long before it even started. Just to make sure, he already locked down his brain, because it is obvious that the brain is the main apparatus through which the outside world communicates with human beings.  No brain=perfect lockdown.

10.  Needless to say, Russians will now concentrate all their efforts on undermining and interfering with Biden’s bid for power. One just hopes that our valiant guardians, like NATO, security agencies, mass media, and select Democratic Politicians, like Adam Schiff of California, will continue their exposure of dirty Russian tricks.

Vladimir Golstein, former associate professor at Yale University, is currently Chair of the Department of Slavic Studies at Brown University.

“Faith-Based Community” I believe also applies to Corona. Upon seeing the title i assumed this post was about Corona and what I call the pro-Panic side (evidence-light, faith-heavy).

I did an anthropological investigation into the manners in which Corona resembles a religious cult, mainly in the anthropologist’s sense:

An anthropological study into the “Corona Cult.” Pro-Panic hardliners and the media succeeded in erecting a virus-centered apocalypse cult as state religion and inducing a mass-conversion event to it, in March 2020 (May 18)

TLDR: Corona is a cult, fitting just about every indicator of a cult one finds in archaeology and anthropology. In other words, a religion.

That was my first impression too! that it was about “covid-fefe”.
“Cult” perfectly describes it; with such sketchy science anyone’s guess depends on which statistics they choose to believe, that is the definition of an “article of faith”.
It comes complete with its own Pope Fauci as well as Lord & Saviour Jesus William Gates.
All we need to complete the description is a lemminglike end-of-days worldwide Jonestown event.

It probably boils down to intelligence. It has been my experience that you can generally reason with intelligent people, even if you disagree with them, and not even a “religious” upbringing can stop many of them using their critical thinking and asking questions.
You get those “U.$. presidents or Oz liarbrel prime monkeys” when that “religious instruction” (or any other philosophic instruction) falls on unintelligent ears which simply can’t analyze or digest the content. The result is a jumbled mess of a psyche.
In fact it is the most “sheepish” people in the world who achieve the highest political status today, because their wisdom simply doesn’t reach far enough for them to know their limits.

The interesting thing is that the communist leaders were all trained in the West. Mao was supposed to bring about the “Cultural Revolution” in which teenagers murdered thousands of intellectuals. The main objective was to eliminate a powerful economic competitor. Kim Jong-un also enjoyed his training in Switzerland.

Poor thing. Not enough that she had a mentally disadvantaged start in life, but she also has to endure being turned into a media monster before she reaches adulthood. It’s exploitation pure and simple, and few such children have the genius to realize what is happening to them until experience very slowly teaches them self-awareness – and then it’s probably too late. It shocks me to see her on TV these days.

Fun article but I think adding Trump into the mix is needless distraction. You need to look behind the throne to see who’s actually pulling the strings — look carefully and you’ll see the same names (not faces, they tend to keep low profile) that have been around for decades.

Trump’s copping it because unlike Dubya he’s not playing the game properly. You’ll recall that Dubya was famously disconnected but it didn’t mater because as President he knew how to walk the walk and talk the talk. He only really figured out what was going on post-Katrina but by then we were heading into the 2007-8 economic free fall so he was toast. Obama showed promise but it took only a matter of a week or two to turn him from ‘promising candidate’ to ‘generic high office’; he was also preoccupied with the economy and a hostile legislature to be able to do much. Trump was seen as an alternative to the Global War candidate by many but only because he ran as a maverick; in reality he’s one of ‘them’ , more interested in fame and fortune than actually doing the job (leaving it for the usual crowd to work out). This might have been satisfactory but his incompetence and his inability to keep his mouth shut have rather sealed his fate — Biden could be replaced by a carboard cutout and his support wouldn’t waver (in fact it would be likely to get better — fewer gaffes).

(I really don’t understand what the confirmed Trumpers see in him. He has mastered the art of appearing to be all things for all likely supporters but he’s unable to deliver and has long since run out excuses.)

Let’s not forget that Trump also has the fatal flaw of changing his mind every five minutes.

TIKhistory says there is no “state capitalism”, state and capitalism are a contradiction. That besides left and right, capitalism and communism, other categories or symbioses also exist, does not occur to him. So China is “socialist”, which is absolutely terrible. Since capitalism has nothing to fear from socialism, it must be ensured that China’s rulers disappear. Which is no contradiction.

We should party like it’s 1969 (i.e. before the libtards took over)

The Hong Kong flu (also known as 1968 flu pandemic[1]) was a flu pandemic whose outbreak in 1968 and 1969 killed an estimated one million people all over the world.[2][3][4] It was caused by an H3N2 strain of the influenza A virus, descended from H2N2 through antigenic shift, a genetic process in which genes from multiple subtypes reassorted to form a new virus. In comparison to other pandemics of the 20th century, the Hong Kong flu yielded a low death rate.[7] The disease was allowed to spread through the population without restrictions on economic activity [there’s some garbage here about a vaccine.]

But here are clear signs by which you can identify the members of the Faith Based Community, the loyal followers of Tertullian’s “Credo quia absurdum.”

Faith-based groupthink is a fundamental of human nature and is not tied to this or that location, this or that era, this or that community. People have been writing about it throughout history, but one of the best statements comes from Emerson in Self-Reliance:

Society everywhere is in conspiracy against the manhood of every one of its members. Society is a joint-stock company, in which the members agree, for the better securing of his bread to each shareholder, to surrender the liberty and culture of the eater. The virtue in most request is conformity. Self-reliance is its aversion. It loves not realities and creators, but names and customs. . . .

The objection to conforming to usages that have become dead to you is that it scatters your force. It loses your time and blurs the impression of your character. If you maintain a dead church, contribute to a dead Bible-society, vote with a great party either for the government or against it, spread your table like base housekeepers, — under all these screens I have difficulty to detect the precise man you are: and of course so much force is withdrawn from your proper life. But do your work, and I shall know you. Do your work, and you shall reinforce yourself. A man must consider what a blind-man’s-buff is this game of conformity. If I know your sect I anticipate your argument. I hear a preacher announce for his text and topic the expediency of one of the institutions of his church. Do I not know beforehand that not possibly can he say a new spontaneous word? Do I not know that with all this ostentation of examining the grounds of the institution he will do no such thing? Do I not know that he is pledged to himself not to look but at one side, the permitted side, not as a man, but as a parish minister? He is a retained attorney, and these airs of the bench are the emptiest affectation.

Well, most men have bound their eyes with one or another handkerchief, and attached themselves to some one of these communities of opinion. This conformity makes them not false in a few particulars, authors of a few lies, but false in all particulars. Their every truth is not quite true. Their two is not the real two, their four not the real four; so that every word they say chagrins us and we know not where to begin to set them right.

A quick fix is to give the US the Saudi bonesaw solution. But there is no power capable of restraining this colossal predator.

A death by a thousand cuts seems a fair solution to treat the US disease. Victims of blatant aggression and barbaric invasions would certainly be happy and will enjoy the scene of a slow slicing of the Empire of Naked Aggression. The Empire of spying and lies. A death by a thousand cuts is fascinating in that it is a very low cost remedy.

If you are their allies, they give you Glyphosates for breakfast. If they don’t like you, they soak your country in Agent Orange and other assorted poisons –and then they call themselves ‘Champions of Human rights’. Is this really an Indispensable country? Good riddance for such a cancer.

Ah, but there is a “power capable of restraining this colossal predator.” It’s called Yellowstone; and if it goes poof in the night, there goes the predator. I know, I know: God (who can’t seem to make up his mind if he’s a Republican or a Democrat – God is nothing if not equal opportunity) would never let such a thing happen to the country he anointed Guardian Of All That Is Good.

But you know: Satan is just like those pesky Russians, and works in ways only a Rachel Maddow could see. And after all, Satan is in charge of fire and brimstone spewing from below – unlike God, who rains it down from above. So it is possible God’s representatives here on Earth – the scientists – could be proven wrong just this once.

The Coronavirus and the Culture War – E. Michael Jones
24 Mar 2020
E. Michael Jones

What looks like the end of the world as we know it is in reality the dawning of the world as God wants it. Logos is Rising. The wicked oligarchs who orchestrated the crash which the coronavirus conveniently disguised were rewarded with the money they sought so avidly, only to pass, sooner or later, from the scene leaving only wreckage behind. But the course of Logos in human history cannot be thwarted by the designs of the wicked. The moment of its apparent death in any age is in reality the moment of its eventual rebirth.

Logos is always rising, no matter how it seems at any particular moment in time. History is an ascending spiral of rationality. God tolerates evil and error to bring about a greater understanding of the good and the true. With each historical cycle, the distinction between Logos and its opposite becomes more apparent. Because the distinction between Logos and anti-Logos in our day has never been more obvious, its victory has never been more certain.

The article should add that this evil empire of dictators are not capable of feeding there own population who are no better than serfs who have no freedom. There nations are incapable of invention and can only progress by stealing idea’s from the west. They plot to dominate the world and spread there evil ways to every corner. Basically they are the bad guys and where the black hats.

In contrast we in the west are the good guys we wear the white hats. We only wish to spread joy and light to the world. Help the world feed it self spreading our independently developed technology But mostly we want to spread freedom from the evil dictators by s something we call democracy. Democracy is this wonderful thing where the people get to choose which of two people will wisely rule them.
Democracy means you have freedom , freedom to say what you want and where you want , freedom to protest and go about your life without fear of the government interference.

There are some terrible cynics who think the west are not the good guys wearing the white hats.
These corrupted people think the west are the bad guys wearing the black hats. There twisted thinking is that evil empire are the good guys wearing the white hats.

The super cynics think there are no good guys wearing white hats and that there all bad guys wearing black hats.

Adam Schiff publicly asserted that he had seen the evidence that proved Trump and Putin collusion. Yet weirdly he neglected to inform Robert Mueller of the existence of this proof, who ended up spending year and millions unable to find any evidence of collusion, and so had to indict some clickbait people and a bunch of Russian intelligence officers in the hope than none of them would ever turn up in court.

And that just does not bother Madcow and the other psychopaths on CNN and MSNBC, but DOES NOT EXIST. Soon to be a ‘conspiracy theory’.

Tedros, Fauci, Gates and Co. can only be understood if you jettison your blinders and understand how corruption and politics work. You have to ’embrace’ the crookedness in all sectors because crooks don’t operate independently! And there’s the thread that links them all.

The Clinton Global Initiative was “a confederation of con artists that would meet in NYC around the time of the UN General Assembly in September of every year from 2005-2016. The Clintons controlled who got in, and all the journalists were eager to get in to hob nob with leaders, presidents and billionaires. They would get up on stage an announce their charitable intentions.. their ‘commitments to action’ which in charity is B.S. It is nothing, not even a pledge. Real people who give money to charity don’t want their names out there and they give a check. They don’t say, ‘I might get around to making a pledge, put me up on stage’.

“Victor Pinchuk (Ukrainian oligarch) started getting involved in 2004 at a time when the Clinton foundation had never been audited even though it started in 1997, it had never been lawfully organized. By 2004 they had been fighting AIDS internationally… and the dimensions of what we are talking about is billions of dollars.” — Charles Ortel, investor, philanthropist and investigator of Clinton corruption on Jason Goodman’s show.

Step two is to look at the links between the Clinton “charities” and Bill Gates.

Efforts of Gates, Clinton Foundations Increasingly Overlap – July 22 2006

“I think what you’re seeing is the beginning of what you might call the first super NGO…with overlapping interests and a great deal of resources,” said former UN ambassador Richard Holbrooke, now president and CEO of the Global Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS in New York City.” https://philanthropynewsdigest.org/news/efforts-of-gates-clinton-foundations-increasingly-overlap

From Influence Watch:

“CGI was widely criticized for the perception that it was just a vehicle for special interests to buy access to then-Secretary of State or Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. [14] During her time as Secretary of State, 44 companies that lobbied the State Department together had pledged a combined $3.2 billion toward CGI initiatives.[15]

Throughout the years, many of these activists have used CGI to announce the creation of left-of-center policies such as a $25 million on foreign aid program for East Africa [You guessed it, the charity run by Tedros of the WHO, the health minister of Ethiopia] sponsored by the Obama administration, JP Morgan, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation. The final CGI conference was held in September 2016, prior to the November election in which Clinton was defeated. [17] https://www.influencewatch.org/non-profit/clinton-global-initiative/

After the Clinton Global Initiative was closed in 2016, the same game switched over to Chelsea Clinton: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2015/02/19/here-are-the-7-biggest-donors-to-the-bill-hillary-and-chelsea-clinton-foundation/

For those suspicious this is just anti-Democratic, anti-Liberal slander .. Ortel points out that the attack against Whitewater “strikes very close to the Bush skeletons” which only got worse when Bill Clinton expanded his Foundation activities into the Bush Tsunami and Katrina efforts”, which Ortel describes as a fraud and then the Clinton-Bush Haiti initiative which “was yet another fraud”. @ 1:18:00 https://youtu.be/pqPJhlBTyp8?t=4737

“It suited the never-Trump Republicans and the Obama people to come together and make an example of Steve Stockman”, who is serving a 10 year prison sentence for his role in alleged charity fraud.

You have to take off the political blinkers to understand the reach of political corruption… in order to see objectively what may be happening behind the Gates-Tedros-Fauci efforts. Sorry for repeating.

Or will it be held via Zoom? Even if lots of them do fly there, I’m sure the conference will be full of Green messages telling all of us to stop flying just so that all of them them don’t have to.

It was immediately memory-holed as ”beneath me” to suggest that philanthrocapitalism dark money webs control not just policy: but pick the candidates and organise movements for you. Not like the bad old days when you had to organise yourself. Now their is loads ‘o’ money – about $32bn – courtesy of Uncle George.

Nope, constituting another state of control was the political imperative back then – not even half a year ago. I wonder if there have been any reconsiderations since then?

Cory Morningstar, Whitney Webb, and Vanessa Beeley have all the detail on philanthrocapitalism’s dark web of humanitarian interventionist and applied behavioural psychology charities …nudge, nudge …including the Jo Cox Foundation.

Money well spent George …looks like you bought the entire democratic ‘climate economy’ progressive mindset. The conservative republican mindset was bought and paid for decades ago. That is democracy privatised. Now for the New Deal For Nature: postponed until next year due to unforeseen circumstances.

Does anyone think another elected dictator will get us out of this mess?

They’re not backing both horses – they own the bloody nags and the racetrack and the betting shops. They ARE the bookies and when the journalist writes that so-and-so was pipped to the post in a surprise finish that no-one could see coming… that journalist and his newspaper is owned by the same group of friends that own the horses, the racetrack and the bookies.

Rich geezers are just cloaking their profit-driven activities in the mantle of this party or that, shaping policy to push the money in their direction, and using misguided party loyalty to shield themselves from criticism.

Suddenly “our party’s” rent seeking can’t be criticized. He may be a crook but he owns our crooks. See how they run to the defense of George, Soros or Bush? What the party cadres don’t realize is it’s the same people running all the parties.

Bill Clinton was George H.W. Bush’s poodle. The following photo used to be all over the internet. Now almost all search engines take clicks on the photo to Snopes.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/A9RXtX4CQAAwDDs?format=jpg&name=360×360

Even Snopes feel they have to address this one: “While it’s impossible to tell what the three men were discussing when the photograph was taken, the picture captures a common occurrence: politicians hobnobbing and shaking hands.”

Well Snopes, you kakists, they were talking business. I’ll tell you what business they had in common: Bill Clinton let the CIA import cocaine through Mena, Arkansas, and export guns to the Contras in Nicaragua. The photo dates from Bush’s residence at Kennebunkport, Maine, July 30, 1983. That is exactly the time of that 75% of all drug smuggling aircraft were passing through the Mena airport according to U.S. customs authorities.

Example of comment on the Mail:

Great that Bill gates has put computer virus stuff on hold and has become a medical expert so that we can pay him to poison ourselves with his untested vaccine. Hopefully he can get even richer now.

Yet note the unwieldy and forced language used in the Guardian Picks: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/may/14/young-person-coronavirus-covid-19-power-of-hope

A great lesson to learn. I’m an X-genner. I worry about my 19 and 20 year old kids and all their cohort. I too was surprised how well the various levels of Government and even many Australian companies and people have handled the pandemic. Surprised and optimistic that they won’t step back in September and say that anybody who is still affected by covid is officially on their own

Hope was the only thing left in Pandora’s box after she had opened it and let all the ills of the world escape. However, unless hope for a better world where these evils can be controlled, if not put back in their box, is followed by action then hope becomes despair. It is to our, and our governments shame that despair is being allowed to triumph over hope.

I’m no Trump man, I’ve been very critical, but I think Trump, right now, is in a position to sweep it away. He could do that by firing Fauci, which I’ve read somewhere, is rumored he’s about to do. Again, let me repeat what I said a while back, the red-state/blue-state status applies to the same areas of the country re: opening up/keeping it locked down. Opening up conceivably could include campaign rallies in August. Additionally, the Russia-gate fairy tale is currently getting a very good thrashing. Flynn exonerated; Mifsud disclosed as Clinton Foundation Sneak; Obama behind all of it; Brennan, Comey, Clapper, and assorted liars . . .

The thing with Trump, for me that is, is that as much as I want to give him a work-in-progress type of approach he continues to disappoint and mystify me. His actions in Venezuela, Iran, and Iraq annoy the hell out of me. But I can’t deny what’s very appealing about him–more or less simultaneously to all the annoyance–is that he appears to be something of a maverick. No? He’s faking it? This something of a maverick quality is very powerful to millions of Americans who have hungered for change these last many years and are sick and tired of Establishment Politics. Trump might be timing a resurge into heroism (at least in his own mind).

I do agree that Trump is a bit of a maverick. He is definitely not a politician. He wears his heart on his sleeve and says what he thinks, to his detriment at times though.

The problem with Trump’s reelection is that he has, by accepting the advice he was being given, destroyed the economy, and his main success had been to make it more stable.
Hence a main reason to vote for him has gone. Will the voter who has lost his earning vote for him? Im not saying they’ll vote for Biden, but they may abstain. So Biden may win by default, with in effect very little support. Still, nothing can be predicted. Anything may happen.

Like ‘Aldous’ below, I wouldn’t rule Trump out yet. The Democrats have obviously bet the farm on this lockdown strategy which is now increasingly unpopular–even in their own states (e.g., California). Notice that all the protests so far have been against the lockdown and against the Democrat governors who imposed it; as of today, there have been no protests against opening up or against the Republican governors.

Moral of the story? Now that the lockdown is an indelible part of their brand, the Democrats might not be in such a strong position in November after all.

Seamus, your saying “the lockdown is an indelible part of [Dems] brand” is right on. Trump’s early stupidities will likely be pushed aside/forgotten under current lockdown brutality.

This part of my “report” from yesterday’s NYTimes “briefings” fascinates me–

The Republican attorney general in Texas moved to stop five urban counties from issuing mail-in ballots.

The state election code, he said, “does not permit an otherwise healthy person to vote by mail merely because going to the polls carries some risk to public health.”

What this quote says to me is that here we have, from an authority in governing and ordering people around, what clearly intimates the danger is not the hype it’s been pushed as all along.

The voting booth only “carries some risk.” That risk is not enough to keep you locked-down as “an otherwise healthy person” in leaving the sanctity of safety at home to vote.

What this suggests, to me, is skepticism in high places is increasing as well as in JQ Public.

Supposing we learn of a new campaign, in which due to the number of vehicle deaths (currently at 102 per day on average and around 37,000 a year) vehicles will now be restricted to a speed limit of 20 mph, and in fact new plodding vehicles of low power will replace all high-powered sporty types.

Dubious analogy maybe, but essentially the factor of risk to health and safety is approximately the same. Imagining Americans or whoever to say, oh, okay, then, yeah no problem. In fact I’ll just start riding an electric bike! indicates probable resistance at the comfort level of “freedom” and being a consumer.

This resistance factor must be why early on, which puzzled me at the time, the national guard was sent in to NY and the middle states “to help out.”

NOTHING BUT SHYSTERS

Trump winning in 2016 was so unexpected the Democratic Party leadership and the intelligence agencies were in a state of shock. All the usual contrived political polls convinced everyone Hillary was a shoo-in. A Trump victory was psychologically too much to bear. The Russian collusion narrative was crafted immediately to justify Hillary’s ignominious defeat. And since January 2017 liberal mainstream media news relentlessly generated concocted myths about Putin and Trump. Even after the Mueller investigation turned out to be a total bust crazies like Schiff and his cohorts on MSNBC and CNN still pursued it. That was until Ukraine-gate another debacle for all those who still couldn’t accept Hillary’s loss. However, Ukraine-gate did reveal that Biden and his cokehead son Hunter are nothing but shysters.

The Hunter rotten apple doesn’t fall far from the old decaying tree. Hunter is quite the family man, he married Kathleen Buhle in 1993, and had three children. The couple separated in 2015 and divorced in 2017. In 2016, he began dating Hallie Biden, the widow of his brother, Beau; they ended their relationship by late 2017. At that point Hunter Biden was involved with
a stripper at a Washington, DC, club which he frequented visited around the time he was dating his brother’s widow. Biden was repeatedly seen at the Mpire Club in the capital’s historic Dupont Circle neighborhood — where Lunden Alexis Roberts, the mother of his love child, worked under the stage
name “Dallas. And in May 2019, Biden married Melissa Cohen, a South African who just gave birth to a son. Biden is currently holed-up in some fancy schmancy estate in LA. Maybe, Meghan Markle and her prince charming is his nextdoor neighbor……..

Smiling Joe trained his son well, as senator he couldn’t keep his fingers off or out of his female staff. Joe’s been recently accused of sexual assault by Tara Reade. However, the Dems only believe women if they say they’re assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh. Now mentally declining Joe is relegated to a basement where he occasionally telecasts a few unintelligible comments. Someone who represented the worst of Obama’s presidency is considered the perfect Democratic nominee. No wonder, more than 110 million don’t bother to vote.

Be that as it may, what I am noticing is Russiagate, Ukraine-gate, and now COVID-19-gate has turned-off Independents and Bernie supporters from voting for Democrats. #DEMEXIT 2020 is one of the most popular hashtags on the internet.
And finally, the Left is beginning to see how COVID-19 is being used by the Democratic Party and their Security State partners as a pretext to launch and test new AI surveillance programs:

“But privacy advocates’ surveillance concerns are not limited to how law enforcement agencies are using controversial technologies, but also how those agencies are sharing sensitive data related to COVID-19 patients. States including Alabama, Florida and Massachusetts, for example, are maintaining lists of positive cases and sharing them with first responders, including police, who could use the virus as a pretext to stop someone with a positive case, or subject them to unwarranted surveillance. Other departments are keeping searchable databases of addresses that can automatically display a warning when a 911 call originates from one of these addresses, according to The New Republic.

These are just the technologies that police departments and federal law enforcement agencies are already using or looking to use. Tech companies’ push for surveillance technology as a solution to the COVID-19 crisis is much wider, with many tech platforms exploiting the crisis as an opportunity to “reimagine” aspects of society, including education, health care and the criminal legal system in a pandemic shock doctrine that author and journalist Naomi Klein is calling the “Screen New Deal.”

“We saw what happened after 9/11 in terms of the Patriot Act and all kinds of enhanced policing and surveillance that went on under the guise of safety and the guise of ‘security,’ and now we have a situation … that gives an entrée to law enforcement and the judicial system to take liberties with policing procedures.” https://truthout.org/articles/pandemic-policing-is-expanding-the-use-of-surveillance-technology/?eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=bd7f2e

The Democratic Party’s alternative to Trump is mentally declining Biden who would be nothing more than a security state figurehead running the entire US like the overreaching nitwit governor of Michigan.

Somewhat OT to the satire:

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/14/briefing/coronavirus-michael-flynn-federal-reserve-your-thursday-briefing.html

A check on this “briefing” from the NYTimes (which I force myself to look at every day) includes the following information:

“The choice between staying home indefinitely and returning to business as usual now is a false one,” Julia Marcus of Harvard Medical School wrote in The Atlantic.

Marty Makary of the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health put it this way, when I spoke to him yesterday: “The outdoors is not only good for your mental state. It’s also a safer place than indoors.” Makary has an Opinion article in today’s Times, called “How to Reopen America Safely.”

Many cities are now expanding outdoor activities. Oakland has closed almost 10 percent of roads to traffic, CNN noted. Cincinnati is closing parts of 25 streets “so restaurants can expand outdoor seating,” The Cincinnati Enquirer reported. San Jose may let restaurants open in parking lots and public parks, The Mercury News reported. Several states are reopening beaches, parks and golf courses.

Another example of the new outdoors push: A nursing home in Los Angeles held an unusual Mother’s Day celebration on Sunday, inviting families to wait in line outside and talk with their relatives through an open doorway. “They feel something inside when the family members are there — it’s different,” the director of activities at the home said.

In other virus developments:

The Republican attorney general in Texas moved to stop five urban counties from issuing mail-in ballots.

The state election code, he said, “does not permit an otherwise healthy person to vote by mail merely because going to the polls carries some risk to public health.”

President Trump took a swipe at Dr. Anthony Fauci, his adviser, who said Tuesday that opening schools in the fall would be risky. Trump said: “To me, it’s not an acceptable answer.”

Wisconsin’s Supreme Court rejected the extension of a stay-at-home order by Gov. Tony Evers, ruling that it exceeded his authority.

It interests me that these indications of resistance to lockdown policy are now entering the Official Narrative via this major MSM mouthpiece the NYTimes.

Otherwise, in NY, we have another case of cop behavior, this time regarding a mother with child, both wearing masks, but apparently not doing so properly. Note how many police it takes to subdue this rebel mother with her child:

Last weekend in Sydney, a mother with her 4 yr old boy was arrested for standing on the street with a sign saying ‘defend your rights defend the magna carta’ around her neck.
I didn’t even know about the protests here in Melbourne last weekend, but speakers at a protest outside Parliament – just speaking, were jumped on by 7-8 cops and thrown into the police wagon.
I’ve seen the footage of those incidents, and the truly disgusting media straight out lied about what happened.
And even after almost 2 months of this, with a fascist police state very obviously being rolled out, most Aussies have been completely lobotomised by the propaganda.

It’s difficult to grasp. I now have lost several “relationships” over this. There is a fixity, an orthodoxy that cannot be breached, at almost religious levels of adherence. Robert Parry would not accept any remark whatever on 9/11. He must have been very frightened by it, as with all such deniers, and held to the position that the unthinkable cannot be allowed, that’s it, this could never happen in America! The paradox is–the reality is the exact reverse of essential and sanctified American values. But for many of them, I think, this means doing whatever they want, except outright crime. It’s not a matter of curiosity to their brains in constitutional terms, or any sense of the history of the last several hundred years, and that is also the easiest, less stressful way to deal with it. I don’t mean to sound harsh. I’m still pleasant with these persons, but politics is an absolute no-no.

I, too, am so perplexed that we are seeing things that should send chills down anyone’s spine, yet most…
Despite my loathing of Facebook, have set up an account so I can join a couple of Australian based groups protesting about the lockdowns, mandatory vaccinations, 5G,opposing the lies and censorship, etc.

Another reason for the continuing the lockdown. You can’t protest outside, meet with friends or other like minded people. Social media is the only way at the moment. I never ever wanted to join Facebook, but now it’s the only method of communicating with the outside world, (or should I say inside world). People say I am hypocritical being against 5G technology while using the Internet, but I have no choice. Same as I can’t use cash anymore, I have to use a card.

Despite my feelings about Facebook, in the couple of days I’ve been on it, have discovered that there’s lots more Australians (and Kiwi’s) out there who are fully aware of what is going on, and who realise how dire the situation is.
Videos being posted of people being arrested just for speaking or standing on the street with a sign in a completely peaceful manner, and being set upon by the States henchmen.
Our rights are being rapidly eroded Ginette. We are heading towards a fascist police state.
Just seen a video of a lady at her home in Melbourne – 2 cops showed up to demand ID merely because she had attended the protest outside Parliament last weekend; days earlier.
How they found her is she would’ve had her phone with her at the protest.
People are now being refused entry into shops in New Zealand, and now here in Aussie if they don’t give out their personal details.
Look, OffGuardian is a fantastic site, and I’ll defend it too anyone, but not that many Aussies or Kiwi’s seem to show up here.

The fact that the majority of people have caved in so easily to this Stalin type approach to me is unfathomable. The enemy now is not without, but within.

We took our 3 and 5 year old grandsons to the local beach yesterday as we had read that this southern California beach had now – “opened.” The large multi-color sign at our entrance to the beach clarified exactly what the word “opened” actually meant.

There was to be – (no stopping, no sitting, no sunbathing, no yoga, no exercising, no group games and of course the expectation to maintain social distancing went without saying). Keep in mind that these are beaches that even during busy season easily could provide a 50 foot buffer in every direction for the typical daily visitors. I felt like was trapped as an “extra” in some absurdist play by Pinter or Beckett.

I spoke with a friend from Michigan today who explained that he can now take his boat out and go fishing, but the covid restrictions in his state specify that he – “can’t use his motor.” Apparently “rowing a boat” somehow outwits the evil little covid bugs while using a motor only encourages them.

Outside the BBC’s headquarters in Broadcasting House, London, is a sculpture by a paedophile and sexual deviant called Eric Gill. This sculpture contains a Latin word, “Obsculta”. It’s the first word of the Benedictine rules and is a command to the monk to “Listen”. But it goes beyond merely using your ear to hear something. You are meant to deeply, spiritually absorb it, which in the case of a monk would be God. Thus, obsculta means “Listen and Obey”. This is what the BBC has been dedicated to ever since it was created: making the audience listen and obey, while also, in Britain, forcing them to pay for it.

Three movies by Costa-Gavras, he’s a giant of political cinema and his work is essential (first review IMDB/Time, nest two from Rotten Tomatoes):

Z (1969) 2 Oscars — In a military-led country, a pacifist organization, which supports the opposition party in the government, is planning on holding an anti-military rally. The organization’s leader is scheduled to arrive the day of the rally, amid reports of an assassinating plot.Thrown into the mix is a photojournalist who’s looking for the truth. Yves Montand, Irene Papas, Jean-Louis Trintignant (IMDB)
In the case of Costa-Gavras’ masterpiece, Z, the filmmaker’s politics are bracingly clear. As a barely fictionalized account of the assassination of leftist Greek politician Grigoris Lambrakis in 1963, and the subsequent cover-up, Z is a taut thriller. As a portrait of the extreme Right’s reliance on thuggery and outright murder to silence opponents, Z is a searing indictment of the near-pornographic appeal that violence, in all its forms, holds for fascists. Finally, as a movie, Z is simply a tour de force: one would be very hard-pressed to find a film that gets one’s heart racing as forcefully (and rightfully) as it stokes one’s moral outrage at the prospect of a once-great political system willfully devouring itself. (Time)

The Confession (1970) 100% — This Costa-Gavras thriller stars Yves Montand as an East European government functionary, inexplicably imprisoned by his Communist superiors. He is not told why he has been arrested, nor has his wife (Simone Signoret) been informed of his fate. Undergoing psychological torture, Montand is grilled about his wartime activities. At the end of his rope, Montand agrees to sign several papers that are thrust before him. He eventually discovers that he’s to be a defendant in a “show trial” conducted by his government. He never knows the whys and wherefores of the whole affair — nor does the audience. The Confession was based on the true story of loyal Communist Arthur London’s unjustified purge trial of 1951. Despite the film’s confusion, Costa-Gavras’ Kafkaesque view of the world, in which the individual is overwhelmed by events that he can’t possibly begin to understand, struck a responsive chord in the chaotic early ’70s.

Missing (1982)</strong95% — American activist Charles Horman (John Shea), who has been a thorn in the side of the country's military ever since his arrival, suddenly disappears. In trying to find out what has happened, his wife Beth (Sissy Spacek) is stonewalled, not only by the ruling junta but by the American consulate. His father, staunchly patriotic Ed Horman (Jack Lemmon), joins Beth in her search. Ed and his daughter-in-law have never seen eye to eye politically, and he refuses to entertain the notion that his son's disappearance might be part of a larger conspiracy or cover-up. But as the days grow into weeks, Ed comes to the shattering conclusion that he and his family have been betrayed by the American government.

Z is such a great film, Moneycircus. I watched it twice last year. Gary Weglarz’ above comment mentions Children Of Men, which had been on my mind too. The film presently on my mind is L’ Eclisse(1962). With that tower that looks like a mushroom cloud ever-present on the landscape, while people allow their lives to open and close with the stock market. A sense of detached anxiety runs through the film, and me, lately.

Off Topic: I am not commenting on this article but about Firefox browser blocking me linking to your website.

I have been reading your articles during the hoax these last few weeks. Starting last week, whenever I tried to link to the article from your email, I was blocked – I would right click on the link in the email to open it in a new window, and instead of it opening, I would be taken out of your email and back to my list of emails. Sometimes I was taken back to the list of emails even before I could get the cursor anywhere near to the link. All my other emails from others – no problems.

I downloaded another browser- no problems opening your articles on this.

Firefox are doing this to my emails/your website articles both in the US and here in the UK. I was in the US for all those other weeks since I first subscribed to you. This week I flew back to UK, same thing happening to your emails.

I assume you are aware your site is being attacked in this way. I personally object to Firefox for trying to ‘save’ me from reading your site.

Keep up the good work.

Mozilla is just another scummy corporate entity cloaking itself in fine-sounding lies.

Try Linux Mint. I recently bought a laptop with Windows 10 installed: oh-my-God! I immediately wiped Windows 10 (what a great feeling that was) and installed Linux Mint. Back in the day Linux had many issues, but it’s now quite good. Like many people I was put off from using Linux OS because I had to use many programmes that only worked under Windows. Nowadays that’s no longer the case. For example, you can now do AutoCad in Linux (draughtmanship was my main way of earning a living) and there’s very good audio and video editing software, etc. My main criticism of the Linux system is that it still doesn’t have high quality, easy to use graphics software.

That said, if you have a spare machine that you can install it on, give Linux a whirl.

You know who funds mozilla? Google!

That said its probably the privacy & security settings go to options & whitelist Off-G, but you say its your emails? Sounds like email client, plus what extensions or apps are you using, adblock, ublock origin?

I use firefox because i like the addons, been using Firefox for decades on & off. I can’t think of a browser that isn’t buggy & corporate funded you have to accept all of them will be spying on you at some level.

I’m using latest version of firefox have no issues.

‘Police vow to break up planned anti-lockdown protests in UK cities

Identity of organisers is unclear, but experts warn of cross-pollination with far-right ideas’

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/may/14/police-vow-to-break-up-planned-anti-lockdown-protests-in-uk-cities

So if you plan to exercise your rights to free association to protest because maybe you want to defend civil liberties or the right to earn a crust or maybe the freedom to do what the fuck you want, the Guardian has already labeled you as ‘far right’ and with that you are now the problem. Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.

We need to ensure that the complete opposite will happen. And if people knew the truth, it would happen tomorrow

‘Far right’? Wow. I guess bringing you bump-stock AR15 to the protest would be completely out of the question then, am I right? 😛

Just look at their literature: War and Peace, Crime and Punishment, Fathers and Children. It is always division, always discord.

It’s even worse, it’s “Fathers and Sons” – the fucking patriarchy, eh?

Americans and Western people in general, have only one protector from these evil interference, NATO, and its two reliable and sparkling clean civilian branches: mass media and security agencies.

Lets not beat around the bush. Not just mass media- there’s an awful lot mini-media, full of integrity and initiative and Atlantic Conseal bellends’, plus many fb/tits who happily regurge the narrative via their trusted alternative of choice.

Not only has Flynn had charges dropped by independent internal review of the doj case – a whole lot of agents of the alphabet agencies have been revealed to have been involved in the conspiracy, going all the way to the WH, by secret cabals within their own organisation! Even as their pocket judge tries to ignore the withdrawal of charges agains Flynn and still tries to carry on with a sentence!

That means beautiful baz is busted, barking biden binned and the cackling prettiest high priestess of them all – finally shattered into pieces that no one will ever put together again!

It seems they lied, cheated and probably even murdered to engage in sedition, treason and coup against a ELECTED president.

Let us also not forget our own Lame-ington Steele of HMG’s secret service. He who with a whole bunch of his mates and his ‘trusted’ Russian source, was tasked with creating fake sexy dossiers as the WMD, to enable the conspiracy. He’s been in the courts here – yet not a whiff of a report has there been in the main or alt media!

It is pretty likely that Trump will sail through with a BIGGER majority when all this is laid out during the summer. All these blindly hating the elected potus will rush to vote against the fake ‘Resistance’ when the curtain is publicly lifted!

It won’t matter there won’t be expensive campaigns and rallies (because of CV) , that the Resistance think will contain his popularity.

Neither will their plan for six figure CV deaths and increased poverty, encouraged to put the blame on Trump.
They are doomed just as they should be.

This time the DS and swamp denizens won’t get rid of a troublesome potus with just a single term like they did with Carter, unless they actually go for another assasination!

But the slowly slowly catchee monkee strategy may mean that real honest state functionaries, the Mr Smiths coming to Wahington, will be inplace to stop a patsy LHO/JFK plot happening.

And hopefully the blowback across the pond takes out our junta and conspiracy against our democracy over the years, culminating in last Decembers coup, with the gauntlet of up-Pompeyo.

But don’t expect to hear about in our mainstream and controlled alt media, beyond a bit of limited hangout, or btl from their troll astroturfing army.

I don’t know why you say that, but I suspect you don’t care about our approval, so i will disappoint you & say i agree with you, except

They are doomed just as they should be.

I’m not so confident. YET.

Elizabeth: I keep seeing these people, all recognizing each other. Something is passing between them all
some secret. It’s a conspiracy, I know it.

Matthew: There can’t be a conspiracy!

Elizabeth: Matthew, I’m telling you something is going on here.

“There’s nothing to be afraid of. They were right, it’s painless. It’s good. Come.. Sleep Mathew. Mathew. Mathew!

Sleep … Sleep … and be born again into a world without fear and hate!

I have a tortoise called Tertullian.
Having shared that, I want to say the point of the anti-Trump hysteria is right before our eyes. People are so trained in Trump Derangement Syndrome that they cannot think straight. Their rights are being taken away and they stand and applaud. All the media has to do to promote the lockdown is say Trump was against it, or delayed it, or is somehow to blame. That’s it. Yuri Bezmenov laid it out in 1984.
