The rich and the powerful really do engage in viciously abusive child sex-trafficking



"Pizzagate" is probably a false-flag psy-op designed to discredit the promotion of the Wikileaks information. However, child sex-trafficking is a real thing that is happening, and Bill Clinton is personally implicated in it. And as far as I'm concerned, Bill and Hillary Clinton are a political tag-team, so the sins and crimes (of which there are many) of one are the sins and crimes of the other as well.

Russian hacking mind-control psy-op bullshit

David Lindorff serves up the Truth Tea.

Let's say for the sake of discussion that the Russians did furnish the Wikileaks information. Wouldn't that simply mean that the they simply did the job that the mainstream media should have been doing by making the public aware of information that was absolutely true? The Democratic Party Kool-Aid drinkers have been sinking to such brand-new lows lately that I don't think I will ever vote for another Democrat ever again. (And I was mostly at that point already. Anyone who doesn't like it can fucking suck it.)

Why the Democratic Party Kool-Aid will always reek of vinegar

The Democrats Do Their Job Again by Paul Street writing at Counterpunch.org

Though one flaw in Street's analysis is that the neoliberal-neoconservative faction of the Deep State isn't just taking defeat lying down. Here is my analysis of what I think is going on:

What I think is going on with this clusterfuck of an election is that two different factions of the US Deep State are in open and hostile conflict with one another, and neither one of these factions is "on the side of the angels". The neoliberal-neoconservative-consensus faction is pursuing confrontation with Russia and China that could lead to global thermonuclear war, and a more paleoconservative faction that is usually content to remain silent decided to get behind Trump's campaign in the interest of preventing armageddon. To be sure, the Republican establishment doesn't really like Trump, but they also realize that this may be their last real chance to get Obamacare totally repealed. And since I really don't think Russia wants World War 3, either, it stands to reason the Russians would do whatever they could to help this mysterious rogue faction.

And now the dominant neoliberal-neoconservative-consensus faction is trying to retaliate by creating a new McCarthyism of which the special-snowflake Tumblrina feminists with their "76 genders" are ironically enough making themselves the willing dupes. But I guess it's not surprising considering what easily manipulated authoritarian fools the special snowflakes are. The faking of hate-crimes to make Trump supporters look bad sure is a nice little touch of class, isn't it?

While I'm sure the Russians engaged in psy-ops and counter-psy-ops aplenty (and possibly even the cyber-attack on the Democratic National Committee), I continue to harbor strong doubts that they were the source of the Wikileaks e-mails or were involved in any election-theft that might have occurred. Such allegations are probably more psy-ops from neoliberal-neoconservative-consensus faction of the Deep State.

Mark Ames on WaPo neo-McCarthyism

Truthdig.com has really been on fire since the election, which is odd, because most of the time they're actually kind of "meh". Today their site featured an in-depth piece by Mark Ames that opens up the Pandora's Box of Cold War far-right racism, nuclear-war-mongering, and general extremism behind the promotion of the Propornot website's neo-McCarthyist agenda.

The neoliberal-neoconservative consensus faction of the Deep State, which is represented by Hillary Clinton and Democratic-Party Kool-Aid drinkers, must be getting truly desperate. But what's truly funny is that they wouldn't be as "on the ropes" right now if they hadn't insisted on forcing the Obamacare boondoggle down the country's throat and blindly continued to drink the Kool-Aid about it when it was clear that the whole thing was imploding!

Matt Taibbi's take-down of the whole "Propornot" debacle is also worth reading.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss

In case any readers jump to the conclusion that I am somehow objectively pro-Trump, this article on Truthdig.com about Trump's cabinet picks sums up why that isn't so.

I am outraged, *outraged*, I tell you...

...that this blog didn't make it onto The Washington Post's McCarthy-list of websites that disseminate Russian propaganda!

This should do it:



Sing along if you already know the lyrics! :-D

This trainwreck of an election

Unsurprisingly, an article on Counterpunch.org manages to sum it up better than anything else I have read to date.

Of course, the real power in the land is the Deep State.

Shillary's professional trolls

Sometimes the only thing there is to say is, "Fuck off, troll!"

Update: Now it's really starting to become tempting to think that Hillary wants to lose!

Further update: There is another side of the story indicating the possibility that Internet rumor-mongering has exaggerated the nature of the situation even if the fundamentals of the story are pretty much true. Also, many other pages went down on Facebook when those pro-Sanders pages went down.

"Your Love" by The Outfield



A song from the old daze that has been playing in my mind of late.

Final cannibalization stage

According to The Economic Collapse Blog (which I am aware is run by a fundie Dominionist, but the guy still talks about things that really are happening in the global and domestic economies), big corporations are piling on massive debt in order to buy back their own stocks in order to artificially inflate the value of these stocks, in some cases taking on so much debt that they end up defaulting on it. If this is what they have to do to keep the financial markets propped up, I would go so far as to say that we are in a final cannibalization stage that presages a very major, very world-shaking correction.

The Archdruid Report: Starhawking the Privilege Game

The Archdruid Report: Starhawking the Privilege Game: The last two posts here on The Archdruid Report , with their focus on America’s class system and the dysfunctional narratives that support...

I left this comment about my own evolving socio-political views:

One thing that occurred to me as I read this post was my evolving attitude (resulting in eventual more-or-less rejection) of what people these days call political correctness. This social ideology has birthed the social justice warriors (SJWs) of modern college campuses. The term SJW is almost exclusively used as a put-down these days on account of the unpopular mindset associated with it.

According to the PC SJWs, the existence of the privileges you outlined in this post means that if you are white in this society, you personally are racist because you benefit from white privilege; if you are a man, you personally are sexist because you benefit from male privilege; and if you are heterosexual, you personally are heterosexist because you benefit from straight privilege. While these forms of privilege certainly exist and awareness of the fact that they exist should inform one's conduct in terms of avoidance of racist, sexist, and homophobic attitudes and behaviors, I don't think I agree with those PC statements anymore.

For one thing, these statements imply that the individual is irrelevant and the only thing that matters are groups or collectives. If find this idea as absolutist and nonsensical as the counter-notion promoted by Ayn Rand that groups and collectives don't matter at all and there is only the individual. In this crucial regard, PC has its roots in the New Left thinking of college campuses of the late sixties and early seventies, which openly admired and imitated the ideology of Chinese communist dictator Mao Zedong and his Cultural Revolution. I really do think you can see those totalitarian roots in the social attitude of those who cleave to SJW orthodoxy.

And while these forms of privilege still exist, they are on their way out, however frustratingly slowly. A good way to bring about the retrenchment of the prejudiced attitudes that go along with these unjust privileges is to prescribe a cure that is as bad in its own way as the disease. That is the main reason I ultimately decided to reject PC thinking. There is really too much to describe about what makes PC ultimately stand for Poor Cure, but I will say the mindset has become so rigid, intolerant, absolutist, and victimhood-fixated that it has become entirely contrary to human nature and as such will likely fade away the way fundamentalist Christian dominionism is starting to do.

Though I suppose a Randite or a neo-reactionary (AKA alt-right) person reading my posts on Tumblr would accuse me of being a "light-beer" version of PC because I probably do have somewhat more in common in my overall mentality with the PC people than I do with those Randites or neo-reactionaries. I would certainly appreciate hearing your thoughts on the matter as you probably have more influence on my evolving attitudes than any other thinker on "teh Internetz"!


And received this response:

Mister R., my take is that the social justice movement has become locked into the Rescue Game so deeply that it can't extract itself, and will continue the game until the last round of Circular Firing Squad is over. The notion that every white person is racist because they benefit from white privilege, for example, is a classic bit of game logic -- remember that in the game, once the role of Persecutor is assigned to a group of people, everything they have ever done and will ever do becomes a deliberate act of persecution, for which they can be bullied by the Rescuers and Victims. Of course the difficulty here is that if every white person is a racist, and will always be a racist, why should any white person bother to make the attempt not to be racist, when by definition they must always fail? That's where you see into the heart of the Rescue Game, with its covert rule: the game must go on forever, and nothing -- especially not any actual improvement in the conditions under which the Victims live, or any actual change in the behavior of the Persecutors -- must be allowed to get in the way of its continuation.

New York Democratic Primary voter suppression

Because New York City is Hillary the Reptile's seat of political power, I knew she would win New York state's Democratic Primary by hook or by crook. To the surprise of nobody who knows what time it is, it would appear that she did so "by crook".

"Kill the gays" fundie dominionism really exists

And Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is apparently down with it.

ISIS in retreat

According to The Washington Post, the Islamic State terrorist group is in retreat on multiple fronts. This is largely due to the efforts of the Russian military, in my opinion. The reason the IS has been able to get as far as it has prior to his point is on account of US allies Turkey and Saudi Arabia helping them every step of the way. In fact, both countries were recently on the verge of setting off World War III by invading Syria and just may yet attempt such a profoundly foolish action!

The spite voters have crowned a king, and his name is Donald Trump

Spite the Vote by Mark Ames. I've published this link before, but it's more relevant now than it has been in the past. It doesn't mention Donald Trump, but it well and truly explains all about his recent political rise.
