Swamp Thang, by James Howard Kunstler

Are indictments and prosecutions in the air? From James Howard Kunstler at kunstler.com:

There’s the Swamp teeming with scaley, slithery, sharp-toothed, many-footed predators, but then there’s the miasma hanging over the Swamp, a toxic mist of lies, misdirection, dis-info, propaganda, bad faith, and sedition, illuminated by pulsing blue gaslight that affords a toxic blanket of protection to the denizens of the Swamp. Now a storm is brewing. The critters are evacuating their mud-holes and moiling about desperately among the cypress knobs as a mighty wind rises — the election hurricane — threatening to sweep it (and them) all away!

The climate is changing, all right, but not in the way that some think it is. The political climate is changing, and what has been a pestilential subtropical sink on the Potomac is overdue for that cleansing we’ve heard about. Weeks from now, as the fetid water subsides, the protective miasma above will dissipate and the people from sea to shining sea will finally get a good look at the landscape revealed and the pitiful, wriggling, dying life-forms of the order Democratica stranded on it.

Case in point: Joe Biden. Many will wonder in the days to come whether the sole and otherwise inexplicable reason for his elevation to candidate-for-president was a ruse to avoid prosecution — his own and others. The matter was neatly laid out a year ago during the impeachment ploy: After the color revolution in Ukraine, 2014, Mr. Biden was designated not just “point man” overseeing American interests in that sad-sack country, but specifically as a watchdog against the notorious deep corruption of Ukraine’s entire political ecosystem — as if, you understand, the internal workings of Ukraine’s politics was any of our business in the first place.

The Political Business Cycle in Reverse, by Thomas DiLorenzo

The economy plays a big part in elections, and the coronavirus gave the Democrats a  perfect chance to try to throw an economy that was doing pretty well into reverse. Then came the riots, another way to destroy businesses and jobs. From Thomas DiLorenzo at lewrockwell.com:

In the late 1970s/early ‘80s the economic subdiscipline of public choice (the application of economic theory and methodology to the study of political decision making) spawned a body of literature on the “political business cycle.”  The book Democracy in Deficit: The Political Legacy of Lord Keynes, by James M. Buchanan and Richard E. Wagner was the main inspiration for this.  There are now hundreds of scholarly articles and numerous books on the subject.

At the time standard Keynesian macroeconomics held that selfless and omniscient public servants would manage monetary and fiscal policy in such a way as to stabilize the business cycle “in the public interest,” minimizing its peaks and troughs along with the costs of inflation and unemployment.  Even by then, however, that notion had been proven to be a farce and a fraud.  Keynesian economics was discredited by the existence of “stagflation” in the ‘70s which it had no explanation for and thought it to be an impossibility.

In addition to many other reasons why central planning under the guise of “stabilization policy” is an inherent failure, the theory of the political business cycle added a new twist:  Politicians are not selfless and omniscient; they are rationally self interested just like everyone else.  They want to keep their jobs, just like everyone else.  One trick that they employ to achieve this goal, says the theory of the political business cycle, is to ramp up government spending just before elections, funded by debt and inflation.  The perceived benefits to voters occurs in the short run, with the bills to be paid after the election.  The conclusion is that political reality dictates that so-called stabilization policy will frequently be destabilizing.

Netflix’s ‘Cuties’: It’s Not The First Attempt By Hollywood To Normalize Pedophilia, by Brandon Smith

Pedophiles are sick and always will be, regardless of elite attempts to “normalize” pedophilia. From Brandon Smith at alt-market.com:

After studying and exposing the agendas of establishment elites for the past 14 years, I can say with some authority that by watching these people you quickly begin to understand the reality of evil. Anyone who dismisses the concept of evil as nothing more than a “social construct” or a matter of “perception” is suffering from either naivety or bias.

They have either been lucky enough to have avoided a run-in with the resident psychopaths in their town, or, they have certain secret tendencies they will not reveal.  One thing that I have found most disturbing is the habit of evil people to quickly come to the defense of other evil people they don’t even know.  That is to say, I was initially shocked to discover the extreme level of fraternity predatory people feel and display when other predatory people are being exposed.  It is as if they are an unspoken brotherhood, and they don’t like it when their kinsmen are being punished for their crimes.

Yes, there are such things as ignorance, greed, jealousy, unhealthy desire, etc., and all of these frailties can lead to evil deeds. That said, in the majority of cases you will find that MOST people feel guilt, regret, empathy and remorse that prevent them from following through with their basest instincts. This is what we commonly call “conscience”, and a greater number of people have it. Without it, our species would have self-destructed and gone extinct thousands of years ago.

With psychopaths, however, it’s not only about a complete lack of empathy and conscience; they also often take JOY in the destruction, debasement and exploitation of others. Standard sociopaths harm people in the process of getting what they want because they do not have the capacity to care. Psychopaths harm people because THAT IS THEIR GOAL. Think of it as a kind of kink; they lust after control over others, they get high from it. And, their most sought after drug of choice is the violation of innocence.

Treason, by Mike Whitney

If the people behind the Transition Integrity Project and their cohorts succeed in overturning a Trump electoral victory, it would be a textbook case of treason. From Mike Whitney at unz.com:

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.”

Marcus Tullius Cicero

The Transition Integrity Project (TIP) is a shadowy group of government, military and media elites who have concocted a plan to spread mayhem and disinformation following the November 3 presidential elections. The strategy takes advantage of the presumed delay in determining the winner of the upcoming election. (due to the deluge of mail-in votes.) The interim period is expected to intensify partisan warfare creating the perfect environment for disseminating propaganda and inciting street violence. The leaders of TIP believe that a mass mobilization will help them to achieve what Russiagate could not, that is, the removal Donald Trump via an illicit coup conjured up by behind-the-scenes powerbrokers and their Democrat allies. Here’s a little more background from an article by Chris Farrell at the Gatestone Institute:

“In one of the greatest public disinformation campaigns in American history — the Left and their NeverTrumper allies (under the nom de guerre: “Transition Integrity Project”) released a 22-page report in August 2020 “war gaming” four election crisis scenarios:….The outcome of each TIP scenario results in street violence and political impasse.

Is it possible that the leadership of the American Left, along with their NeverTrumper allies, are busy talking themselves into advocating and promoting street violence as a response to a presidential election?

The answer is: Yes…. expect violence in the aftermath of the election, because now that is the new ‘normal.” (“How to Steal an Election”, Gatestone Institute)

Farrell is right. As we can see from the many articles that have recently popped up in the media, the American people are being prepared for a contested election that will fuel public anxiety and revolt. This all fits with the overall strategy of the TIP. Selected journalists will be used to provide bits of information that serve the interests of the group while the people will be told to expect a long and drawn-out constitutional crisis. Meanwhile, the media, the Democrat leadership, trusted elites and elements in the Intelligence Community will put pressure on Trump to step down while firing up their political base to take to the streets. TIP’s 22-page manifesto makes it clear that mass mobilization will be key to any electoral victory. Here’s an excerpt from the text:

“A show of numbers in the streets-and actions in the streets-may be decisive factors in determining what the public perceives as a just and legitimate outcome.” (“Preventing a Disrupted Presidential Election and Transition”The Transition Integrity Project)

Democratic Derangement: Party ‘Games’ A Possible Coup If Trump Wins In November, by the Issues and Insights Editorial Board

Are Democratic election war games actually blueprints? From the Issues and Insights Editorial Board at issuesinsights.com:

he strength of America’s elections lies in people’s confidence that votes will be fairly tallied, and that the losing party will bow out gracefully and become the loyal opposition. But what if a loser refuses to acknowledge the results of a free and fair election? What if it instead takes to the streets to commit violence and mayhem? Or even attempts a coup?

We ask because there’s every sign now that the Democrats, in a panic over candidate Joe Biden’s lackluster basement campaign and growing evidence that he is suffering age-related mental impairment, will refuse to acknowledge President Donald Trump for a second term, even if he wins clearly.

The last time we had a party really refuse to accept the results of an election was in 1860. Then, Democrats in southern states threatened to secede if Abraham Lincoln, candidate of the anti-slavery Republican Party, won. He did, and southern states began seceding before he even took office. We fought a civil war.

Today, we might be edging toward another.

“We now seem to be on the cusp of relitigating the question, only instead of slaveholding southerners blackmailing the country with secession, it’s anti-Trump Democrats and left-wing radicals threatening to tear the country apart if Trump wins in November,” writes John Daniel Davidson at the Federalist. “For them, the Union is conditional, and Trump’s reelection will violate their conditions.”

Of course, in 2000 and 2016 the Democrats also objected to the election outcome, but at least could argue that the Republican winner in neither election had a majority of the popular vote. (Irrelevant, of course, since thanks to the Founders’ wisdom we choose our president through the Electoral College, which gives individual states clout in picking the nation’s chief executive. That keeps the U.S. from being dominated by a dictatorship of just four or five heavily populated states.)

Since 2016, however, Democrats have openly made it a full-time political job to stymie Trump’s presidency. They’ve charged him with cheating in the 2016 election, colluding with the Russians, and even killing thousands of Americans due to his supposedly incompetent response to the China virus pandemic.

The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world.

– Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

My blog was started four years ago this month. Inspired by the courage of other writers out here on the still-free internet, I thought I’d add my two cents, as it were; an American Nobody speaking truth to power. Indeed, in September 2016, I fully expected Hillary Clinton to win the presidency in a matter of weeks.

 

During the two months immediately preceding November 8, 2016: I wrote on the Trojan Horse aspect of political correctness, immigration, the giant sucking sound of manufacturing jobs lost to Mexico, mainstream media obfuscation, the rise of the technocracy, George Soros, Obama, Hillary, Trump, the Illuminati, the rigged-game of American politics, Agenda 21, Cloward-Piven, Fractional Reserve Banking, and encroaching tyranny.

My penultimate article prior to the 2016 election was entitled “Winners Who Won the Wind”, whereupon the following was written:

To those who are encouraged regarding recent headlines of the FBI reopening the case again Hillary a few weeks before the election, keep in mind even this could be a play by the globalists to orchestrate a Trump win. There are some who claim the best play by the financial elite would be to allow the nationalist movements behind both Trump and Brexit to have their day in the sun. This would allow the establishment to simply collapse the system in any number of ways and thus blame the ensuing wreckage on nationalist naiveté and the foolish dreams of protectionism.

With a Hillary win it will be a fast track to war, financial armageddon and third world status. With a Trump win, the powerful moneymen can simply change the order to: financial armageddon, war and then, third world status. The names may change but the end results will be the same. Either way, the winners have won.

Structural-Racism Hoax a Loser for Dems, by Robert Ringer

Has the Democratic party been a “good deal” for blacks? Not by a longshot, which is why blacks are shifting to Trump in unheard of numbers for a Republican. From Robert Ringer at lewrockwell.com:

With President Trump’s support among African-Americans edging toward 40 percent, it’s clear that an increasing number of blacks now understand that liberty and capitalism, not big government — and certainly not socialism — are the keys to a productive and prosperous life.

What has taken so long for blacks to recognize that liberty and capitalism are their friends is the fact that Democrats have controlled the levers of power for decades — especially in major cities. They have mastered the art of empty promises, childish hyperbole, and hysterical rhetoric. They have also mastered the art of keeping their history from the general public, especially blacks.

Since its founding in 1829, the Democratic Party has had a long history of racial discrimination. It passionately defended the unconscionable practice of slavery (including starting the Civil War to keep slavery in place), opposed Reconstruction, founded the Ku Klux Klan, imposed segregation, and engaged in lynching. Democrats also fought tooth and nail against the civil rights acts of the 1950s and 1960s.

In the infamous 1857 Dred Scott v. Sandford case, the Supreme Court ruled that slaves were property and therefore could not be citizens.  The seven justices who voted in favor of this decision were all Democrats, while the two dissenting justices were Republicans.  Have you ever heard a Republican talk about this?  Of course not.  It might offend their Democratic colleagues.  In this respect, Republicans have enabled Democrats in their ongoing efforts to keep blacks uninformed.

Ever since the implementation of Democrat Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, government welfare programs have decimated black families.  To add insult to injury for inner-city folks, politically correct police guidelines have made it easier for criminals to terrorize black communities.  Through both their actions and lack of action, Democrats have made it clear that black lives don’t matter to them at all.

The Devil and Karl Marx, by Walter E. Williams

Today’s socialists feed on the fantasy that somehow their socialism will turn out differently than the genocidal socialism of the past. From Walter E. Williams at lewrockwell.com:

Paul Kengor is a professor of political science at Grove City College in Grove City, Pennsylvania. He has just published “The Devil and Karl Marx,” a careful look at the diabolical side of Karl Marx. The book has come out during an important time in our history since so many Americans, particularly our youth, have fallen for the seductive siren song of socialism taught to them by the academic elite.

“The Black Book of Communism,” edited by Stephane Courtois details the Marxist-Leninist death toll in the 20th century. Here is the breakdown: USSR, 20 million deaths; China, 65 million; Vietnam, 1 million; North Korea and Cambodia, 2 million each; Eastern Europe, 1 million; and about 3.5 million in Latin America, Africa and Afghanistan. These figures understate those detailed by Professor R.J. Rummel in “Death by Government.” He finds that from 1917 until its collapse, the Soviet Union murdered or caused the death of 61 million people, mostly its own citizens. From 1949 to 1976, Communist China’s Mao Zedong regime was responsible for the death of as many as 78 million of its own citizens.

The world’s intellectual elite readily focus on Adolph Hitler’s murderous atrocities but ignore those of the world’s socialists. Mao Zedong has been long admired by academics and leftists across our country. They often marched around singing his praises and waving his little red book, “Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-tung.” President Barack Obama’s communications director, Anita Dunn, in her June 2009 commencement address to St. Andrews Episcopal High School at Washington National Cathedral, said Mao was one of her heroes.

What Hath White Liberals Wrought? by Paul Craig Roberts

The mainstream media has reached a point of depraved corruption that it won’t even report black on white crimes. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.org:

A black walked up to a police car in which two Los Angeles County deputy sheriffs were sitting and shot both multiple times.  Both officers are in intensive care fighting for their lives.  Black Lives Matter, called “protesters” by the presstitute media, blocked entries and exists to the hospital chanting “we hope they die.”  https://www.rt.com/usa/500601-trump-death-penalty-shooting/

A black female onboard an airliner refused to cooperate with a white female flight attendant, telling the white female that her “white privilege was over” and “you don’t run America no more,” and that she “slaps the shit out of white bitches” that disrespect her.  So to a black, cooperating with a flight attendant would be submitting to “white privilege.”  Nothing happend to the privileged black.  If she had been white, she would have been removed from the flight. https://www.zerohedge.com/political/watch-what-white-privilege-looks-according-some?utm_campaign=&utm_content=ZeroHedge%3A+The+Durden+Dispatch&utm_medium=email&utm_source=zh_newsletter

Mass shooting by Black Lives Matter foiled by Police.  A black male armed with 9 weapons and hundreds of rounds of ammunition targeted white customers in a Bass Pro Shop but was foiled.

Reconsidering the Presidential Election, by the Saker

Many people, including the Saker, have misgivings about Trump but will vote for him because they’re pretty sure he won’t turn the country over to violent criminals. From the Saker at unz.com:

In early July I wrote a piece entitled “Does the next Presidential election even matter?” in which I made the case that voting in the next election to choose who will be the next puppet in the White House will be tantamount to voting for a new captain while the Titanic is sinking. I gave three specific reasons why I thought that the next election would be pretty much irrelevant:

  1. The US system is rigged to give all the power to minorities and to completely ignore the will of the people
  2. The choice between the Demolicans and the Republicrats is not a choice at all
  3. The systemic crisis of the US is too deep to be affected by who is in power in the White House

I have now reconsidered my position and I now see that I was wrong because I missed something important:

A lot has happened in the past couple of months and I now have come to conclude that while choosing a captain won’t make any difference to a sinking Titanic, it might make a huge difference to those passengers who are threatened by a group of passengers run amok. In other words, while I still do not think that the next election will change much for the rest of the planet (the decay of the Empire will continue), it is gradually becoming obvious that for the United States the difference between the two sides is becoming very real.

Why?

This is probably the first presidential election in US history where the choice will be not between two political programs or two political personalities, but the stark and binary choice between law and order and total chaos.

It is now clear that the Dems are supporting the rioting mobs and that they see these mobs as the way to beat Trump.
