The War on Populism: The Final Act

CJ Hopkins

So, it appears the War on Populism is building toward an exciting climax. All the proper pieces are in place for a Class-A GloboCap color revolution, and maybe even civil war. You got your unauthorized Putin-Nazi president, your imaginary apocalyptic pandemic, your violent identitarian civil unrest, your heavily-armed politically-polarized populace, your ominous rumblings from military quarters…you couldn’t really ask for much more.

OK, the plot is pretty obvious by now (as it is in all big-budget action spectacles, which is essentially what color revolutions are), but that won’t spoil our viewing experience. The fun isn’t in guessing what is going to happen.

Everybody knows what’s going to happen. The fun is in watching Bruce, or Sigourney, or “the moderate rebels,” or the GloboCap “Resistance,” take down the monster, or the terrorists, or Hitler, and save the world, or democracy, or whatever.

The show-runners at GloboCap understand this, and they are sticking to the classic Act III formula (i.e., the one they teach in all those scriptwriting seminars, which, full disclosure, I teach a few of those). They’ve been running the War on Populism by the numbers since the very beginning.

I’m going to break that down in just a moment, act by act, plot point by plot point, but, first, let’s quickly cover the basics.

The first thing every big Hollywood action picture (or GloboCap color revolution) needs is a solid logline to build the plot around. The logline shows us: (1) our protagonist, (2) what our protagonist is trying to do, and (3) our antagonist or antagonistic force.

For example, here’s one everyone will recognize:

A computer hacker learns from mysterious rebels about the true nature of his reality and his role in the war against its controllers.”

In our case, the logline writes itself:

After America is taken over by a Russian-backed Hitlerian dictator, the forces of democracy unite to depose the tyrant and save the free world.”

Donald Trump is our antagonist, of course. And what an antagonist he has been! As the deep-state spooks and the corporate media have been relentlessly repeating for the last four years, the man is both a Russian-backed traitor and literally the resurrection of Hitler! In terms of baddies, it doesn’t get any better.

It goes without saying that our protagonist is GloboCap (i.e., the global capitalist empire), or “democracy,” as it is known in the entertainment business.

Now, we’re in the middle of Act III already, and, as in every big-budget action movie, our protagonist suffered a series of mounting losses all throughout Act II, and the baddie was mostly driving the action. Now it’s time for the Final Push, but, before all the action gets underway, here’s a quick recap of those previous acts. Ready? All right, here we go…

Act I

(status quo/inciting incident)

There democracy (i.e., GloboCap) was, peacefully operating its de facto global capitalist empire like a normal global hegemon (i.e., destabilizing, restructuring, and privatizing everything it hadn’t already destabilized and privatized, and OK, occasionally murdering, torturing, and otherwise mercilessly oppressing people), when out of nowhere it was viciously attacked by Donald Trump and his Putin-Nazi “populists,” who stole the 2016 election from Clinton with those insidious Facebook ads. (For you writers, this was the Inciting Incident.)

(new situation/predicament/lock-in)

GloboCap did not take this well. The deep state and the corporate media started shrieking about a coming “Age of Darkness,” “The death of globalization at the hands of white supremacy,” “racial Orwellianism,” “Zionist anti-Semitism,” the “Bottomless Pit of Fascism,” and so on. 

Liberals festooned themselves with safety pins and went out looking for minorities to hide in their attics throughout the occupation.

According to GloboCap, every “populist” that voted for Trump (or just refused to vote for Clinton) was a genocidal white supremacist undeserving of either empathy or mercy. Somewhere in there, the “Resistance” was born. (This is the plot point known as the Lock-In, where the protagonist commits to the struggle ahead.)

Act II (a)

(progress/obstacles)

As is traditional at the opening of Act II, things were looking promising for GloboCap. The “Resistance” staged those pink pussyhat protests, and the corporate media were pumping out Russia and Hitler propaganda like a Goebbelsian piano. Yes, there were obstacles, but the “Resistance” was growing.

And then, in May of 2017, special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed, and “Russiagate” was officially launched. It appeared that Donald Trump’s days were numbered!

(rising action/first culmination)

But, no, it was never going to be that easy. (If it was, feature films would be less than an hour long, not to mention incredibly boring.) There was plenty of action (and an endless series of “bombshells”) throughout the ensuing two years, but by the end of March 2019, “Russiagate” had blown up in GloboCap’s face.

“Populism” was still on the rise! It was time for GloboCap to get serious. (This was the classic first culmination, sometimes known as The Point of No Return.)

Act II (b)

(complications/subplots/higher stakes)

In the aftermath of the “Russiagate” fiasco, the GloboCap “Resistance” flailed around for a while. An assortment of ridiculous subplots unfolded … Obstructiongate, Ukrainegate, Pornstargate (and I’m probably forgetting some “gates”), white-supremacist non-terrorist terrorism, brain-devouring Russian-Cubano crickets, Russian spy whales, and other such nonsense.

Meanwhile, the forces of “populism” were running amok all across the planet. The gilets jaunes were on the verge of taking down Macron in France, and gangs of neo-nationalist boneheads had launched a series of frontal assaults on Portlandia, GloboCap Anti-Fascist HQ, which Antifa was barely holding off.

(second culmination/major setback)

All wasn’t totally lost, however. GloboCap sprang back into action, successfully Hitlerizing Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of leftist “populism,” and thus preventing the mass exdodus of Jews from Great Britain. And the US elections were on the horizon.

Trump was still Russian-agent Hitler, after all, so he wasn’t going to be too hard to beat. All that GloboCap had to do was put forth a viable Democratic candidate, then let the corporate media do their thing.

OK, first, they had to do Bernie Sanders (because he was another “populist” figurehead, and the point of the entire War on Populism has been to crush the “populist” resistance to global capitalism from both the Left and the Right), but the DNC made short work of that.

So, everything was looking hunky-dory until — and you screenwriters saw this coming, didn’t you? — the pivotal plot-point at the end of Act II, The Major Setback, or The Dark Night of the Soul, when all seems lost for our protagonist.

Yes, implausible as it probably still seems, the Democratic Party nominated Joe Biden, a clearly cognitively-compromised person who literally sucked his wife’s fingers on camera and who can’t get through a two-minute speech without totally losing his train of thought and babbling non-sequiturial gibberish.

Exactly why they did this will be debated forever, but, obviously, Biden was not GloboCap’s first choice. The man is as inspiring as a head of lettuce. (There is an actual campaign group called “Settle for Biden!”) GloboCap was now staring down the barrel of certain swing-voter death.

And as if things weren’t already dire enough, the “populists” rolled out a catchy new slogan: “TRUMP 2020, BECAUSE FUCK YOU AGAIN!”

Act III

So, all right, this is part where Neo orders up “guns…lots of guns.” Which is exactly what our friends at GloboCap did. The time for playing grab-ass was over. Faced with four more years of Trump and this “populist” rebellion against global capitalism and its increasingly insufferable woke ideology, the entire global capitalist machine went full-totalitarian all at once.

Suddenly, a rather undeadly virus (as far as deadly pestilences go) became the excuse for GloboCap to lock down most of humanity for months, destroy the economy, unleash the goon squads, terrorize everyone with hysterical propaganda, and otherwise remake society into a global totalitarian police state.

And that wasn’t all…no, far from it. GloboCap was just getting started. Having terrorized the masses into a state of anus-puckering paranoia over an imaginary apocalyptic plague and forced everyone to perform a variety of humiliating ideological-compliance rituals, they unleashed the identitarian civil unrest.

Because what would a color revolution be without rioting, looting, wanton destruction, clouds of tear gas, robocops, and GloboCap-sponsored “moderate rebels” and “pro-regime forces” shooting each other down in the streets on television? (In an homage to Orwell’s Ministry of Truth, the corporate media, with totally straight faces, have been describing this rioting as “mostly peaceful.”)

*

That brings us up to speed, I think. The rest of Act III should be pretty exciting, despite the fact that the outcome is certain. One way or another, Trump is history. Or do you seriously believe that GloboCap is going to allow him to serve another four years? Not that Trump is an actual threat to them.

As I have said repeatedly over the past four years, Donald Trump is not a populist. Donald Trump is a narcissistic ass clown who is playing president to feed his ego. He is not a threat to global capitalism, but the people who elected him president are.

In order to teach these people a lesson, GloboCap needs to make an example of Trump. Odds are, it’s not going to be pretty.

See, they have him between a rock and a hard place. As CNN’s Fareed Zakaria explains, on election night, Trump will appear to have won (because the Democrats will all be mailing in their votes due to the apocalyptic plague), but later, once the mail-in votes are all counted, which may take weeks or even months, it will turn out that Biden really won. But, by then, it won’t matter who really won, because one of two scenarios will have already played out.

In Scenario Number One, Trump declares victory before the mail-in votes have been tallied and is “removed from office” for “attempting a coup.” In Scenario Number Two, he doesn’t declare victory, and the country enters a state of limbo, which the Democrats will prolong as long as possible. Either way, rioting breaks out.

Serious rioting … not “peaceful” rioting.

Rioting that makes the “BLM protests” we have witnessed so far look like a game of touch football.

And this is where the US military (or the military-industrial complex) comes in. I’ll leave you with just a few of the many ominous headlines that GloboCap has been generating:

This Election Has Become Dangerous for the U.S. Military”
Foreign Policy

Whose America Is It?”

Does it sound like GloboCap is bluffing? Because it doesn’t sound like that to me. I could be totally wrong, of course, and just letting my imagination run away with itself, but if I were back home in the USA, instead of here in Berlin, I wouldn’t bet on it.

In any event, whatever is coming, whether this is the end of the War on Populism or just the beginning of a new, more dramatic phase of it, the next two months are going to be exciting. So, go grab your popcorn, or your AR-15, and your mask, or full-body anti-virus bubble suit (which you might want to have retrofitted with Kevlar), and sit back and enjoy the show!

It seems the author here has done a bit of plagerizing with this script. The movie is called ’The Perfect Storm’ and millions are already enjoying the show- they just happen to be GlobalCap’s real threat and enjoy the honor of trapping this parasite class within their own honey pot. As a movie critic I must say you left out the most important scene- the shocking surprise twist called QAnom. Lol.
As they say It aint over until the fat lady sings. In this case we should be expecting a golden ending. It may look like the sheep are still asleep, however it’s all of the millions of those crazy conspiracy theorists who have already championed and been granted the final cut rights.

Operation Legend

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Legend
Operation Legend (or Operation LeGend) is a federal law enforcement operation in the United States initiated by the administration of President Donald Trump.[3] The operation was named after four-year-old LeGend Taliferro, who was shot and killed in Kansas City, Missouri, on June 29, 2020.[4][5] According to the White House, Operation Legend was implemented after President Trump began deploying federal law enforcement agents to crack down on violent crime in the wake of the George Floyd protests.[5] For Operation Legend, agents from various federal agencies were deployed to aid and assist city and county law enforcement officers.[6][7]

Effects
On July 22, 2020, Attorney General William Barr announced that more than 200 people were arrested during the initial operation in Kansas City, stating “Just to give you an idea of what’s possible, the FBI went in very strong into Kansas City and within two weeks we’ve had 200 arrests”.[2] Local authorities could not confirm the number announced by Barr, with The Kansas City Star later stating that “A Department of Justice official said the 200 arrests cited by Barr Wednesday included some dating back to December 2019, and included both state and FBI arrests in joint operations.”[2] At the time of Barr’s announcement, federal agents related to Operation Legend had made only one publicly known arrest, according to NPR.[23]

As of August 19, 2020, there have been 217 people who have been charged with a federal crime, and more than 1,000 arrests have been made in major metropolitan cities since the Department of Justice launched Operation Legend. Nearly 400 firearms have been seized by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.[24]

On September 3rd, 2020, the Department of Justice announced that it has so far arrested more than 2,000 people, including 147 homicide suspects, as part of the sprawling, nationwide initiative to stem the tide of violent crime. Since the nationwide crackdown was announced on July 8, local and federal law enforcement officials have confiscated more than 544 firearms, seven kilos of fentanyl, 14 kilos of heroin, 12 kilos of cocaine, and 50 kilos of methamphetamine. Of the more than 2,000 suspects, 476 have been charged with federal offenses – most of them related either to firearms or drugs.[25]

AG Barr on Operation Legend: 3,500 Arrests, Hundreds Charged with Federal Crimes

There are a couple of stories here which indicate that the Trump admin sees the US Marshals as a key element of federal law enforcement.

US Marshal won’t change deputation order; says Portland “sick” of protests
Move comes hours after Wheeler asks to end the federal deputation
by: KOIN 6 News Staff
Sep 30, 2020
PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The U.S. Marshal announced it will not cancel the cross-deputation of local and state law enforcement officers in Oregon.
The move came just hours after Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler asked to end the federal deputation of dozens of police officers in response to the ongoing protests in the city. . . .
Deputizing the Portland officers would give federal prosecutors the option to charge anyone arrested by those officers with federal crimes . . . It also could allow law enforcement a way around Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt’s decision not to file state charges against hundreds of protesters who were arrested for lower-level and non-violent offenses, a policy that has angered some in the law enforcement community.

Trump seems to be popular among the rank and file.

https://nypost.com/2020/07/16/national-association-of-police-organizations-endorses-trump/
National Association of Police Organizations endorses Trump
July 16, 2020
A coalition of police unions and associations across the country is endorsing President Trump’s re-election bid, recognizing his “steadfast and very public support” of law enforcement officers.
The National Association of Police Organizations, which represents more than 1,000 police units and associations nationwide, threw its support behind Trump in a letter released Wednesday acknowledging his “continued strong support” of cops tasked to protect Americans.
. . .
The group also praised Trump for directing Attorney General Bill Barr to “aggressively prosecute those who attack our officers,” . . . The endorsement by the association – which met with Trump on Monday – comes after it did not back a candidate in the 2016 election, Fox News reports. It did, however, support former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in both the 2008 and 2012 elections. . . . McHale told Fox News that Trump garnered more than the two-thirds majority of votes needed among its members to secure the endorsement.

A SORRY SITUATION

“Donald Trump is not a populist. Donald Trump is a narcissistic ass clown who is playing president to feed his ego. He is not a threat to global capitalism, but the people who
elected him president are. In order to teach these people a lesson, GloboCap needs to make an example of Trump. Odds are it’s not going to be pretty.”

That sums up the entire sorry situation. Trump is not a threat to the neoliberal imperialist capitalist Empire, however, the outraged millions throughout the planet rejecting relentless exploitation are a huge threat. 

 In 2016 and then again in 2020 the ruling class saw how thousands passionately flocked to Bernie Sanders rallies while Joe Biden couldn’t fill a high school classroom. The wealthy oligarchs terrorized by social unrest would do ANYTHING to stop it even if it meant releasing a virus resulting in the death of thousands or implementing life destroying lockdowns. 

 Remember this sociopathic group are no different than the bunch who unleashed radiation on the Bikini Atoll using the unsuspecting population as mere lab rats:

“Nuclear testing at Bikini Atoll consisted of the detonation of 23 nuclear weapons by the United States between 1946 and 1958 on Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands. Tests occurred at seven test sites on the reef itself, on the sea, in the air, and underwater.”

And don’t forget Truman didn’t think twice about dropping two nuclear bombs on Japan
instantly killing hundreds of thousands. So don’t ever underestimate what these psychopathic ghouls would do to maintain their hegemony over the 7 billion on this planet.

Color revolutions, mowing down thousands, instituting Martial Law is nothing new for them. It’s been deployed many times before on seven continents. Don’t forget they have total control over 24/7 mainstream media news and have co-opted most of the Independent media–“propaganda omnipotence” which would’ve caused Goebels to regularly ejaculate. The ghouls can design ANY narrative they desire and watch how it’s lapped-up by stupefied millions. 

However it should be noted, that when propaganda NO longer works brute force is deployed. Either way they have all the bases covered. Twenty years ago shock and awe caused by the Towers collapsing resulted in a mass acceptance by US citizens to abrogate numerous individual rights.  A Faustian Bargain for safety.  What will the dumbfounded plebs be willing to offer as sacrifice to the “demented ruling class Gods” to end their current torment………Stay tuned to MSNBC, CNN, or FOX and you’ll soon find out.

An excellent article by CJ Hopkins again!
 
Additionally we can take a look to outside of the USA:
I bet that Saudi-Arabia will collapse – financially and politically :
http://www.williamengdahl.com/englishNEO16Sep2020.php
 
I also bet that Turkey’s economy will collapse and there will be political turmoil – everything Erdogan (like MBS in Saudi-Arabia) touched, will turn/had turned to dust .
 
The bet the EU will split during the economic catastrophe that the lockdown kicked loose – like kicking loose an already waiting avalanche.
I bet that at least Italy will leave the EU.
 
If we will have something like a civil war in the US – or even a coup d’etat by the military: Syria, Russia, Iraq, Iran will use this destabilisation of the US for escalation of confrontations with US/Nato soldiers every second day.
 
If You, CJ, understand German: As a thank-you here is something about the “Berliner Milieu”:

Trump Approval SKYROCKETS After Crushing BLM Leftist Riots And Signing Historic Peace Agreements. After Trump took decisive action over the riots, sending in the FBI to arrest and prosecute Antifa and BLM leaders the riots just stopped.
This likely resulted in a major boost in support from people who were tired of BLM leftists rioting across the country.
But Trump also negotiated three historic peace agreements bringing about peace in the Middle East. For his work with Kosovo Trump was given the highest possible honor by Kosovo.
People are fed up with Democrats, their support for the far left, and the ineptitutde.

In a slave and owner society, a slave is allowed to do what is master tells, or allows him/her to do.

In todays [democratic?] free society one is allowed to to do, or say what the government tells you to do.

Is there a difference?

Yes we get to vote for our government/masters every four years or so, But whichever party organization is in charge.
a] they are different sides of the same coin, and;
b] they [the party] is answerable to the 3% who are the real people in power.

No not the Jews, or Zionist. The 3% don’t really care about race, religion, nationality or gender etc, these are but tools. They work within their cliché to remain in power and keep the system running to their advantage. But occasionally they allow new players to join their cliché.

I really think Trump ought to receive a copy of this article.
He’s tough enough to withstand personal denigration for the sake of the bigger picture, and I think he might even enjoy the above, although I can’t be certain that he doesn’t know everything in it already.
It seems to me quite conceivable that he simply enjoys being a narcissistic ass-clown – seriously, just for fun. He appears to have no interest whatever in actually running a country, but then it is quite clear that he is not required to either.
Chaos is the aim, and Chaos is with us now. Heck, Chaos even controls the “elite”.
After all, the devil does, technically, have the rank of archangel, despite being fallen. We can’t expect his weapons and ammo to be entirely earthly.

it’s a bit hard trying to understand how apparently intelligent people just totally separate themselves from reality when the word Trump is mentioned, and start making up nasty comments about some great straw dog they label as ‘TRUMP!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’ etc – the idea that ‘He appears to have no interest whatever in actually running a country,’ is just plain stupid and contrary to what he has been doing since he was elected for anyone who has actually been paying attention – here for example a list of accomplishments – https://www.promiseskept.com/recent/ – obviously you are going to just dismiss this, but most of these are actually accomplishments – you should try to understand that making statements completely contrary to reality doesn’t do a lot for whatever credibility you aspire to, unless you’re trying to appease the TDS people, which would say something about your reasoning ability, as these people are more like cult zombies and pretty obviously dangerous to be around – oh wait – maybe you are one already ….

We’d better just accept that I am “apparently intelligent”, or “just plain stupid” then.
You might consider, however, that I have, indeed, been paying attention to what Trump has been doing over recent years, and that my comments were not made as flippantly as you would like to think. I do understand, however, that there is no way you could know that.
But why would I make statements “completely contrary to reality”? That would be wasting my own time as much as anyone else’s.
The list of accomplishments you provided is NOT “obviously going to be dismissed by me”, since I don’t dismiss anything out of hand. But I have in mind that Obama was also capable of producing impressive-looking lists of social accomplishments, while concealing the staggering international misery and slaughter which continued to increase under his administration.
I consider one tactic you sometimes use in debate to be fundamentally dishonest. It is basically the equivalent of saying “Nazi Germany may have been bad, but the trains ran on time”. What is dishonest about that is the implication that things weren’t really so bad after all, when, in fact, they were.
Wise men no longer go into high politics in the west. It’s too dangerous. The result is that less intelligent people are left to fill the void, although they are certainly bright enough to fathom the enormous personal wealth which is to be gained by using an utterly corrupt system exactly as it is.

‘But why would I make statements “completely contrary to reality” – that’s just SOP for trump haters, they just make shit up and accuse him of it, completely denying reality with their great horrible ‘Orange man bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’ straw dog, and very often the old ‘projection’ thing, i.e. accusing Trump of not accepting the results of an election, when this is what THEY have been doing for the last 4 years, and have actually said they plan to do in Nov, assuming Trump wins, which is is almost certain to do, I don’t think the Dems and media can rig it enough to stop him now (and many, many examples of their blatant hypocrisy accusing Trump of things they themselves were doing the last few years)
– case in point – ‘I consider one tactic you sometimes use in debate to be fundamentally dishonest. It is basically the equivalent of saying “Nazi Germany may have been bad, but the trains ran on time”. What is dishonest about that is the implication that things weren’t really so bad after all, when, in fact, they were.’ – I don’t do this kind of thing, there is no place you can point to where I have done this, I have NEVER said anything like ‘Trump is bad, but.. (the trains run on time)’, so you are the one being ‘fundamentally dishonest’ – as here, you accused Trump of not being interested in running the country, obvious nonsense to anyone paying attention, as you claim to have been doing but don’t actually appear to have been, I gave a LONG list of things many people consider very good accomplishments, which all stemmed from a very great interest in running the country, and trying to overturn some of the worst aspects of the deep state agenda of the last 40 years or so, and ‘make America great’ for average Americans again – there are a hell of a lot of American out there who think he has been doing a very good job of running the country
(and for the record, I do not buy the propaganda line you quote, about the trains running on time, but …. – they did run on time, and for almost all Germans things were very good otherwise also, the reason he was so popular – it’s a longer story with mucho caveats of course, but you need to get out a bit more and question the things you have been indoctrinated to believe, and evidently still are quite susceptible to, having joined the MSM driven TDS gang… )

You have turned this into a competition to see who will first admit they have misunderstood, or who is wrong.
I am perfectly relaxed about the views I hold, but you are far more interested in personally belittling what I have to say, because it has a hint of not supporting Trump to the hilt.
Note the word, “hint”… I didn’t say Orange Man bad, but I expressed serious reservations about him as President.
That has obviously annoyed you, but you won’t see through your annoyance to what I actually said, and perhaps even try to understand why I said it.
You might be Trump’s mom, considering the way you seem to feel you are obliged to defend him from even a hint of criticism.
Note the word, “seem”, since I don’t know you, whether you are, in fact, his mom, or whether you really do feel that there is something wrong with people who criticize him.

WARD:You have turned this into a competition to see who will first admit they have misunderstood, or who is wrong.
DAVE: Not in the least, I am quite obviously ‘right’ in most of what I say, you are trying to dodge around with various semantical / rhetorical ploys to avoid admitting you were saying things that could not be defended but were simply childish, baseless insults and slurs, as is the norm with the TDS cult – I will retract the accusation of ‘blind hatred for trump’ in light of your further comments, but only to replace with ‘blind, uninformed dislike’ – as I have pointed out several times, you make accusations that have no basis in reality, but appear to be nothing more than repeating the slurs and lies from the mainstream media people who very obviously do hate him – as someone presenting themselves as an informed person, you really should be doing a bit more independent research rather than this kind of stuff – I suppose you hear the word ‘Fox’ with a patronizing ‘OMG!!!’ shudder, but you should try them sometime, to get alternative points of view from the mainstream media hatred of Trump, I actually tried Fox a few years ago (after many years of being a good ‘progressive’ sort and ‘knowing’ there was no point in listening to a bunch of rightwing crazies on Fox), and found to my surprise there were many, many very intelligent people there, with political views I often disagreed with, but who I thought I would be able to talk to if I ever had the chance to meet them – and a lot of interviews with Trump himself, and very intelligent and wellspoken people who supported Trump – quite an eye-opener, during which I did NOT become some kind of unquestioning Trump acolyte, but did get a lot of respect for him and his strength and intelligence and ideas, and fitness for being president in very troubled times in the US when just this kind of person was needed to challenge the deep state, and developed a very, very serious dislike (I try to avoid blind hatred) of the lying bastards in the mainstream media lying about him all the time
WARD: I am perfectly relaxed about the views I hold, but you are far more interested in personally belittling what I have to say, because it has a hint of not supporting Trump to the hilt.
DAVE: as noted in the last response, we seem to have somewhat divergent ideas of the notion of ‘hint’ –
WARD: Note the word, “hint”… I didn’t say Orange Man bad, but I expressed serious reservations about him as President.
DAVE: again, ‘‘he simply enjoys being a narcissistic ass-clown – seriously, just for fun. He appears to have no interest whatever in actually running a country..’ seems to me to be a bit more than ‘serious reservations’
WARD: That has obviously annoyed you, but you won’t see through your annoyance to what I actually said, and perhaps even try to understand why I said it.
DAVE: again, rhetorically trying to dodge what you actually said, and put me on the defensive, I’ve been around way to long for this kind of trickery – you seem reluctant to admit what you actually said, as just quoted – accept it, and justify it, don’t try to brush it off as ‘a hint’ of something
WARD: You might be Trump’s mom, considering the way you seem to feel you are obliged to defend him from even a hint of criticism.
DAVE: there we go with the ‘hint’ stuff again, introduced with the trusty old ‘ad hominem’ insults that seem to creep out when some people are losing an argument
WARD: Note the word, “seem”, since I don’t know you, whether you are, in fact, his mom, or whether you really do feel that there is something wrong with people who criticize him.
DAVE: more rhetoric – I have never been bothered by honest criticism, but the TDS stuff as noted above has nothing to do with honest criticism – nor does your comment as quoted above ‘‘he simply enjoys being a narcissistic ass-clown – seriously, just for fun. He appears to have no interest whatever in actually running a country..’ – you aren’t seriously going to call that some kind of honest, intelligent ‘criticism’ are you????
WARD: I would rather discuss his accomplishments, or his lack of them, here. My ego and your ego have nothing to do with whether he is a decent President or not.
DAVE: Well, we agree on that – but what does ‘‘he simply enjoys being a narcissistic ass-clown – seriously, just for fun. He appears to have no interest whatever in actually running a country..’ have to do with it??

All semantics and time-wasting, simply in order to prove your very hastily arrived-at theory that you know everything and I know nothing.
You are the one who has avoided real debate here, using the cheap trick of calling everything you disagree with “TDS”. Just think about that for a moment… Is it really “deranged” to find Trump’s infantile ego unfit for the US Presidency? Does finding serious character faults in the man automatically have to mean that a feeble charlatan like Biden is a better choice?
And, most crucially, what, exactly is it which has persuaded you that Trump is the man for the job? Is it the mere fact that there is nothing else of any significance on offer? Can we really do no better than that?
Tell you what, Dave, I’ll leave you with a couple of examples of what I mean about Trump. Make of them what you will…

Washington Monthly:
“The deeper issue at play here is that Donald Trump doesn’t really want to be president. For quite a while now we’ve known that he spends very little of his time addressing the issues we face as Americans. Instead, he devotes most of his day to watching Fox News and rage-tweeting…”

PJMedia:
“Trump’s recent response to the terrorist attack in Pakistan on Easter Sunday, in which The Donald tweeted, “I alone can solve.” The former Trump staffer noted, “Superhero powers where ‘I alone can solve’ problems are not real. They do not exist for Batman, for Superman, for Wrestlemania and definitely not for Donald Trump.”

Intelligencer:
“The Trump calculation, quite a conscious one, was different. The candidate and his top lieutenants believed they could get all the benefits of almost becoming president without having to change their behavior or their worldview one whit. Almost everybody on the Trump team, in fact, came with the kind of messy conflicts bound to bite a president once he was in office. Michael Flynn, the retired general who served as Trump’s opening act at campaign rallies, had been told by his friends that it had not been a good idea to take $45,000 from the Russians for a speech. “Well, it would only be a problem if we won,” ­Flynn assured them.”

The internet is full of such examples. This isn’t my ego talking. It’s people talking who know more than Trump does.

I see the stress of defending the obviously undefendable is making you a little hysterical, so it’s time to sign off. I see you are indeed a hardcore TDSer, of whom one of the key signs is an absolute refusal to acknowledge anything remotely good or positive about the man, continue repeating stupid comments that whoever you are talking to has proven false, and just pile on the childish insults. And the desperation ‘appeal to authority’ rhetorical device – quoting a bunch of other Trump haters has approximately zero argumentative value. Find some valium or something and chill out, son. As a confirmed TDSer, you’re not worth wasting any more time on.

‘Donald Trump is a narcissistic ass clown who is playing president to feed his ego.’ – god I hate it when someone you used to have some respect for reveals they have succumbed to trump derangement syndrome, which completely f***s up your thinking process. Let’s consider what I think a much more realistic scenario – Trump is a man, not perfect nobody is, who pretty much accomplished the American dream, building a great real estate empire, living a life of luxury, a very smart man to do all this – and during his later years, he sees his country has been taken over by some very bad people, and decides to fight those people, drain the swamp they have built to shelter themselves, and return the American Dream to the American people. He is mocked at first, but then does the unthinkable, as the very clever warrior he is underneath the playboy exterior (Batman anyone?) and wins one of their great prizes, the US Presidency, from which he starts his great crusade. It is difficult at first, because of course the entire machinery of government is controlled by the swamp people, who do all they can to destroy him – but amazingly he keeps on his feet, and keeps fighting, slowly but surely getting rid of those around him who want to destroy him, and replacing them with people loyal to both him and the American Dream they were also very saddened to see in such trouble from the corrupt swamp people. And we have come to the part in the story where he now must ask the American people if they approve of what he has done so far, and wish him to continue. And etc etc etc – we might think of Mr Smith Goes To Washington, an innocent taking on a very corrupt system. And Trump as not some ‘narcissistic ass clown’ as the trump derangement syndrome people, aka deep state useful idiots portray him, but a brave and strong James Stewart, standing up bravely to some very, very nasty people – and looking out to the American people – do you want to go back to the way things were? Or do we want to try to return to the American dream, as yet unfulfilled, but still beckoning, if we have the courage to fight for it?

you should try and overcome your anger and cynicism, as understandable as it is. Carlin was talking about the ‘American dream’ in the time of the deep state, and of course his cynicism was very well justified and his comedy right on the mark – but there once was an American dream, and if you can try to be honest, tens if not hundreds of millions of Americans realised that dream over the last couple of hundred years – sure, many people did not – but many did, and the ‘dream’ was that more and more people could get there. the deep state reversed all that, America, and most English speaking countries, have been going backwards rather than forwards the last few decades, and Carlin was commenting on that. My point was, that I think Trump was and is trying to resurrect the American Dream, as he was privileged to live it (to work hard and be successful), and make the country a land of opportunity again. And he seems to be doing a not bad job so far, given the great support he is receiving for, as he says, promises made, promises kept. The deep state of course really, really wants to stop this and get back to their Carlin version of the American dream – which side are you on?

No anger here. The only anger I have experienced for months has been on account of covid-mania.
Cynicism, on the other hand should not necessarily be “overcome”. Heaven knows we have reason enough to trust very few people in modern politics.
But you mustn’t assume that I disagree with everything you said in your comment. I certainly don’t, although I do try to be brief, since I have a busy life.
Calling a reluctance to buy the whole Trump package, “Trump derangement syndrome”, is understandably going to offend people who are neither deranged nor blind to the coincidental benefits of the Trump administration, when compared to the awful prospect of a Biden/Clinton collaboration.
But I just have too much to do in order to be able to write long, comprehensive comments on everything I find of interest here.
I hope you will allow for the fact that I found a great deal of your comment both sensible and truthful, but I hope you will also give me credit for seeing Carlin and Trump for what they are.
“The American Dream” is a propaganda term, and both Trump and Carlin acknowledge it as such, although in different ways. In fact, almost all politicians do that.

Just for clarity – I never said or suggested all cynicism needs to be overcome, the suggestion was that misplaced cynicism can actually be harmful if it keeps you from a more accurate assessment of reality.
And ‘Calling a reluctance to buy the whole Trump package, “Trump derangement syndrome”, is another very inaccurate statement – TDS is a blind hatred of Trump, a refusal to see the man for what he really is, not perfect but very smart and able, criticizing everything he does with no attempt at honest assessment, exaggerating and lying about things he says to try to demean him, etc etc. Your statement ‘It seems to me quite conceivable that he simply enjoys being a narcissistic ass-clown – seriously, just for fun.

No, my statement,

is in no way indicative of hatred.
Trump is an entertaining show, and I would probably enjoy an honest, frank, discussion with him away from the media, over a drink, and I would also expect to learn a thing or two.
Hatred only applies to evil, like Cheney, Hillary and the other warmongers, whereas the foolery of Trump’s public image, and his very frequent changes of mind, are not something to hate, but simply to be rather astonished at.
The choice before Americans is not, to my mind, a real one.
They are forced into the unnatural position of having to say, “Well, okay, you’ll do” in the absence of a truly worthy candidate.
It’s rather like “Love Island”, (which I accidentally watched once) where a bunch of spoiled, bored brats of both sexes seriously expect to find true romance or love from a teeny-tiny selection which the media seriously offer them as viable partners…
Similarly, in Washington, where are the truly excellent, the really wise, the vastly experienced candidates?
They are screened out by the media, because they don’t fit into their narrative.

I remember Trump from the 1980s. He was very famous for one thing, incredibly bad taste. Everything was gold and it was surrounded by more gold.

However he has survived a continual onslaught from the Forces of Slime. He’s still there and still fighting, hugely popular with the deplorables. His sister has recently (correctly) said he is now making it up as he goes along, playing to his base.

He didn’t want to be president, Bill Clinton persuaded him to run against Cruella but now he wants revenge on everyone who has called him an ass clown (or worse).

Hello Lost in a dark wood: Seditious conspiracy (18 U.S.C. § 2384) was intended as an enforceable protection established by and for the people – as “government”. It was intended to act against organized racketeering and criminal bureaucracy.
See: RICO ACT.

Also See: U.S. CodeTitle 18Part IChapter 115 › § 2382

18 U.S. Code § 2382 – Misprision of treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason against them, conceals and does not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President or to some judge of the United States, or to the governor or to some judge or justice of a particular State, is guilty of misprision of treason and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than seven years, or both.” [End quote]

Okay, this is just some more “legal” stuff, but it may be interesting to those who like this sort of thing.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_Code_of_Military_Justice
The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ, 64 Stat. 109, 10 U.S.C. §§ 801–946) is the foundation of military law in the United States. It was established by the United States Congress in accordance with the authority given by the United States Constitution in Article I, Section 8, which provides that “The Congress shall have Power….To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval forces”.

And this is probably another bit of pre-emptive programming; in addition to the building work, of course!

Fun with #Antifa agitators in Philadelphia

Last week a DHS leaked email confirmed Antifa is an organized group, detailing that the violence in Portland was not “opportunistic,” but rather “organized”—confirming long-suspected details about the Antifa movement.

The Washington Post recently commissioned Mark Bray, author of Antifa: Anti-Fascist Handbook, to dispel “Five myths about antifa” (note the lower case) — — Bray dutifully claimed the group is not an organization, is simply a “tradition of militant antifascism” and rejecting claims that Antifa “masterminds violence at Black Lives Matter protests.”

Coincidentally two presenters on Fox News (of all places) felt duty bound to deny that George Soros funds District Attorney candidates to the tune of $1 million in order to compromise/influence/buy the local justice system.

“Soros’s plan to elect these prosecutors has been well documented already – and it has nothing to do with his spiritual or ethnic background. The Los Angeles Timesthe New York TimesPoliticoUSA Todaythe Washington Postthe Wall Street Journalthe Associated PressCBSthe South Florida Sun-Sentinel – even Fox News itself, among others, have all thoroughly reported on it.” — ZH

The most salient element: “Coincidentally two presenters on Fox News (of all places) felt duty bound to deny that George Soros funds District Attorney candidates to the tune of $1 million in order to compromise/influence/buy the local justice system.”

The $1 million figure is a gross understatement of the influence peddling involved.

American “legal” systems were hijacked sometime during the 1850’s. The replacement of the Original 13th Amendment with the “reconstructed” 13th amendment, placed the antiquated British B.A.R association in control of jurisprudence over the expanded slave class specified within the 14th Amendment. What “authority” is specified by terms such as “Your Honor” or designations such as “Esquire”? The following link is only a primer: >

The BBC… as evidence that a political party that lasted five years… in the U.S. of the 1890s… as an economic protest by farmers…

And the BBC wheels out Melvyn Bragg as a political historian… at the height of ‘The Resistance’ against Trump in June 2017… to posit a link between modern-day populism and racism.

Doesn’t that look like one hell of a stretch and clearly done for a specific purpose?

It’s hardly a story burning to be told. There are more urgent stories desperate for the telling — not to mention better ways for Bragg to spend his retirement.

So what could the BBC’s motive possibly have been?

No, populism is a massive popular reaction to the establishment and elite globalist ruling class which no longer represents the interests of people and nation. It has absolutely nothing to do with racism or the C19th century, Jodie. It’s led by anti-EU and anti-leftist politicians in Europe and Brazil, and by the great orange anti-politician himself in the US. It’s aim is to put people and nation before ideology and/or corporate profits. Americans or Italians or Hungarians and their interests first, not corporate corruption and control of legislators and public institutions, or endless wars of intervention to satisfy neo-con warmongers and enrich the progressive elites and their sponsors. Populism is grass roots democracy renewed, but leftist elitists fear it because they also fear a majority rule that denies leftist rule of the ‘herd’. In other words, leftists fear being obliged to serve plebs and democracy, rather than continue imposing their leftist beliefs on the inferior proles as before and as always. They fear rejection and obsolescence, so constantly smear populist rivals with many offensive labels, those second-hand judgements that demonise and dehumanise the victims, always treating them as intellectually and morally inferior. ‘Dumb gammons’, passive ‘sheeple’ and ‘little englanders’ join the ancient slur ‘racist’ to reveal the depths of leftist respect, tolerance and empathy these days. Leftists realise that populism reveals the power of the people and democracy, not the power of the left. Populism is the democratic revolt of the masses against those wannabe saviours who presume to know and dictate what’s best for everyone else. But the longer and harder leftists attack populists rather than the globalist, undemocratic elites they oppose, the more fascistic, hypocritical, irrelevant, and unelectable they appear, and the happier and more secure the globalists will be and feel. Like this, it’s lose lose, leftist tools. The only way to turn that around is to confront and condemn your hate and prejudice against non-leftists, and join the populist revolt instead of seeking to suppress populism. Put love of people and nation before your love of ideology.

I have often been impressed with CJ Hopkins’ take on many things, but this analysis of our plight seems off.

All indicators pointed, at least for me, to Trump’s 2016 “election” as being a CIA/Mafia coup d’état insofar as you could see MSM giving him a trillion bucks of free face time in the run-up to the “vote” and all his unexpected upsets were all in states which were stunning rogues of long-standing, well known to election fraud trackers of any mettle.

Besides, there were many signs I had seen of agents being mobilized on the streets, or as they say “in the field”, to do whatever it takes to put Trump in.

And we’re on record as well for having told all kinds of people beginning late 2015 that Trump would be the next a** clown in the Big Round Room, and he never disappoints that way.

And, he will be re-elected. Or rather re-selected. As pResident.

Both selections are CIA/Mafia faits accomplis.

I’m in a win-win situation personally because I will love it if events prove me wrong. A blind parakeet over Trump (whch come to think of it is a pretty accurate enough description of his rival, or his mascot).

I will be mindless with glee if Trump is gone, as dangerous as his policies have been, mostly.

I say, if events prove me wrong, not votes, because votes mean nothing here @USA INC, they’re simply doctored now to fit a script just like covid stats.

The only reason the Democrat corporate media complex gave Trump a ‘trillion bucks of free face time’ is because they so hate him that the fearless master troll was able to play them like a violin, and continues to do so everyday. Incensed with rage, puffed up with self-righteous indignation, their judgement revealed as bigotry, leftist-controlled politicians, mass media, Hollywood, big tech, corporations, education and academia simply cannot resist trying to defame someone they view as evil. But this behaviour conveniently and constantly reveals their endless hate while tricking them into highlighting all the issues key to the MAGA revolution, without a dime spent on political advertising. Haters are so predictable, so easy to trigger and thus expose. They are very well played by Trump. Now he’s on the brink of a historic landslide second victory, but leftists still spit, froth at the mouth and intone what were once magical words of power, like ‘dumb racist’. Don’t they have anything better to offer?

If you know the subjects some, of course.

More people are waking up to the fact that Covid™ is not an epidemiological event it is a business model. Quite similar in many ways to The War on Terror™. Both manufactured events that are meant to increase the portfoli’s of the super- wealthy.

It is vitally important to understand that public health policy is hitched to global markets. Instead of serving those at risk of sickness and death, government “health” policies of financialization are constructed to benefit investors.

Manufactured pandemics create new investment products that increase the holdings of billionaires and further concentrate their wealth. 

The WHO, CDC, NHS etc. are merely conduits for these investors who channel their investments through the likes of the Gates Foundations e.g. The return on these investments is staggering.

This is not going away unless and until we make it go away. All of the politicians that are “deciding” these things are spokespeople for these investors.

Global public health (and education) has become a plaything of financiers.

I fully support the view that the pandemic was manufactured or made much worse for the benefit of corporate profits and/or political power. I strongly suspect the same is true of the wu-flu itself. But the war on terror is not comparable: it has resulted in the deaths of countless mass-murdering Islamist fanatics, and saved even more innocent victims from their unspeakable barbarity. Barbarity is morally wrong, not self-defence. I’m sure posters would not condemn the eradication of murdering white supremacist terrorists. So doesn’t failure to condemn murdering terrorists with other skin colours or supremacist beliefs reveal anti-white racism?

The ONLY use they have is to give DoD & PTB the excuse they need for total totalitarianism and mass incarcerations etc, tens of millions in “relocation” camps such as exist in plenitude in the South West desert states, empty now, but ready and waiting for years.

Given the crushing effect of the lockdowns on private businesses and the tenancy of millions, they seem destined for use.

May God prove me wrong!

Why not link us to the photos of those camps which have been ‘waiting for years’? And I wonder why Obama (or Bush) would build them. Perhaps it was to house the illegal immigrant kids Obama put in cages? I’ll link you to Xi Jinping’s many concentration camps full of 3m Chinese Muslims, and we can compare.

Don’t forget any coup will overturn a Trump victory, never a Biden victory. Slow Joe is a very obedient puppet and obviously reads his lines straight from the deep state teleprompter. The poor operators must dread his many slips and growing senility.

Nonetheless, very commendable of you to be teaching anything at the age of 14…. and no, it wasn’t funny… delivery stumbled on it’s own feet and lack of logical direction… the hermetic pontification of opinions unsupported by the slightest explanation is a disgrace to what I call the British subtle IQ… I hope you guys are enjoying yourselves, the rest of us are just stunned. Who are you talking to kid? Geeezzzz

Here’s what I told a colleague when Trump was elected, and my guy was all about frenetic narratives of “opinions”…

  • Look it’s simple, if he’s good, he’ll be assassinated, if he’s a whoe, he’ll live…

What I mean by whoe is selling the tax payers money for a commission. Pandemic is all about that… pumping that money up again, oh and don’t let a crisis go to waste… poison them too… there’s too many of them. It’s our fault so we have to repair that… remember Bill Gates talk at Ted Talk… “one of those numbers need to come close to zero”

CJ Hopkins We have a little theatre in our beautiful village, where we live in London. We have actors, and they do plays, which they have for an exceedingly long time. Our village is very old. It was a kind of stopping place, where the horses could get fed and watered, and the barmaids served up real ale with a lovely smile.

You have probably already spent a bit of time in London

If you come back, I might buy you a pint, if you convince them to host one of your plays.

There will be no money in it for anyone, but you will be very welcome

Quite so, Jock. Trump is a mere mask for the Bankers’ global syndicate. It is the billionaire-controlled media, after all, who insist he’s an “outsider”, and when have they ever told the truth? How could he have become or remain a billionaire if he were actually an opponent to the murderous, treasonous NWO?

You’ll have to keep doing incredible somersaults to keep painting Trump as puppet rather than as an ally against totalitarian control. Globalists will love the show. Alternatively, update:

The top U.S. general in the Middle East on Wednesday confirmed plans for partial troop drawdowns in both Iraq and Afghanistan before the Nov. 3 election, as President Donald Trump seeks to fulfill a campaign promise to end America’s “endless wars.”
https://news.yahoo.com/u-pull-1-200-troops-113858167.html
President Trump 9.9.20: “I’m not saying the military’s in love with me. The soldiers are. The top people in the Pentagon probably aren’t because they want to do nothing but fight wars so all of those companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy.”
https://twitter.com/TVNewsHQ/status/1303037246875017216
“Trump has broken a 39-year-old streak of American Presidents either starting a war or bringing the United States into an international armed conflict. The last president to avoid doing so was Peace Prize laureate Jimmy Carter,” Tybring-Gjedde wrote. “I’m not a big Trump supporter,” Tybring-Gjedde said. “The committee should look at the facts and judge him on the facts — not on the way he behaves sometimes. The people who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump. For example, Barack Obama did nothing.”

FYI, Trump had a personal fortune of about $8bn before entering politics in 2015. He has reportedly lost around 3bn since taking office, while donating his entire salary to good causes each month. Perhaps you could name any politician or leader who got poorer from his privileged position. I can’t. Obama, now another multi-millionaire, just bought his 7th mansion in Martha’s Vineyard. But he bravely fights racist white capitalists like Trump, so leftists don’t mind.

Well, it would seem that way on the surface, but China has a lot of cards to play and we’re into the Chinese Loan Shark for a WAD.

They own most of LA. They don’t advertise it. Yet.

While we’re on the subject, as a Californian and often Angeleno, I was edified to learn several years ago that China discovered California through its visiting 600 feet long warships under Admiral Zhou decades before the Spaniards.

In the 1300s, they left markers. That fact has been suppressed. The late (Californian) Thom Steinbeck’s novel “In the Shadow of the Cypress” is one source that gives the backstory on that.

Like most politicians, one thing’s for certain: Trump’s a feckless coward. Like most politicians, Trump has no ideology aside from avarice. Trump will do what is best for Trump.

So in the scenario provided by the author, where Trump derives his power from the masses who elected him, who themselves have no real power in the face of GloboCap even in the aggregate, the final act, then, is all but assured. For one must ask: are enough Americans starving? How mad really are the ‘silent majority’? Mad enough to give up their relatively mundane, soulless but relatively comfortable lives?

But perhaps Trump isn’t just an accident, in which case Act III might have alternate outcomes. Maybe an anti-climactic Act III followed by a Part 2 (script writers love doing this to milk every last drop), succeeded by Acts IV and V and so on until years later, after the parasitic class (Trump included) have sucked dry what’s left from the bleached bones of their chattel (us), maybe then the people will get the revolution everyone seems keen to experience. Ironically, the notion of revolution is likely a seed planted in minds of the masses by the script writers themselves.

After finishing reading my Book at Bedtime – “How To Stop Your Doctor Killing You” by Dr Vernon Coleman..I have started reading ZONE23 by CJ Hopkins.

Whilst it is set in The Future, it does not have a soft introduction.

More like starting with Rammstein, rather than Puppet on a String By Sandie Shaw..but more or less on the same theme…possibly. I have only read the first 2 pages.

Oh, and for those not familiar with the ‘Coronavirus Act’ in the UK, it was rushed through last March without any Parliamentary oversight (the UK no longer has a functioning Parliament). Amongst other things, the Coronavirus Act effectively gives unlimited powers to unelected little pricks like Dominic Cummings, Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance, all of whom have close ties to big pharma. These sort of people are now running the country.

The Coronavirus Act consists of almost 400 pages of legal gobbledegook, all of which was prepared long before anyone had heard of a fairy tale called covid 19.

I’m not exactly a fan, but Charo is (or was) an accomplished flamenco guitarist who studied with Andres Segovia when she was a child. I changed “under” to “with” in the previous sentence to preempt lewd wisecracks.

But it’s true that, perhaps due to Xavier Cugat’s influence, she became famous in the US because of her “bouncy” personality; the Charming Airhead persona brings fortune and fame to those who can pull it off.

You are killing me, deadly contact buzz from the virus puns. Thanks for this, I didn’t know that about Charo, too busy giggling at her in my Wonder Years. In Paris 16ème I lived next door to Brigitte Bardot in 1977 and I get it, I would see her in the lobby of her highrise as I went nearby for a bargain meal at RestaurU, with a quintet of Afghan dogs in tow. Quite a (well-clad) high fashion en ville display.

I’d see Charo on Merv Griffin and Johnny Carson in the early 1970s while simultaneously taking the niece of my piano teacher, Jolein from Amsterdam, to the LA Music Center where we got rush tickets to hear Segovia play, 2nd row Center seats, what a rush. In Basque beret, he would take out his kerchief and wipe his mouth between Albeniz solos, and glance up mildly at the raucous balconies, too loud to hear him, a very classy classicist way to try to get the youth to stop bellowing in stoner anticipation of his lone Flamenco piece, the Albeniz Danza Espanola flamenco that the Doors had just popularized with “Spanish Caravan”. I later learned it on piano in the original, but in fact Albeniz had really intended it for guitar, which he could not play. Nor could I, but I was lucky enough to meet Alicia de Larrocha after she shook the Steinway with it to the rocking stage floor boards, playing it at SMU in 1980.

Great piece, but all that the ne’er-do-well potheads in attendance for Segovia could grasp was “BOOooGIE MANNNN !”

Maestro Segovia was not amused.

He himself was not always totally faithful to the printed score, which my very distinguished piano teacher disliked about him, as a music-entranced and very disciplined Dutch Sephardic Jew, and who played Albeniz for me breathtakingly, but I venerated Segovia, worshipped him as he played with disarming high quixotic romance, and mesmerizing vibrato to the heart.

I had NO idea Charo was his student.

We had Christopher Parkening come as a 12 year old to our minute military school from his nearby crib in Northridge, and play, in 1966 I think. He was a very noted student of the Maestro.

It’s still on my short list to learn acoustic. Beethoven said the guitar was an entire orchestra (he keeps cropping up in this his 250th Birthday year!)

Now at last Charo gets some respect, even though still also a bit of a meme!

Props to Charo.
