What happens on November 3rd ? It’s like a larger than life replay of the famous Hollywood adage: “No one knows anything.”
The Dem strategy is crystal clear, spawned by the gaming of election scenarios embedded in the Transition Integrity Project and made even more explicit by one of TIP’s co-founders, a law professor at Georgetown University.
Hillary Clinton, bluntly, has already called it: Dems must re-take the White House by any and all means and under any and all circumstances.
And just in case, with a 5,000-word opus, she already positioned herself for a plum job.
As much as Dems have made it very clear they will never accept a Trump victory, the counterpunch was vintage Trump: he told the Proud Boys to “stand back” – as in no violence, for now – but crucially to “stand by”, as in “get ready”.
The stage is set for Kill Bill mayhem on November 3rd and beyond.
Say it ain’t so, Joe
Taking a cue from TIP, let’s game a Dem return to the White House – with the prospect of a President Kamala taking over sooner rather than later. That means, essentially, The Return of the Blob.
President Trump calls it “the swamp”. Former Obama Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes – a mediocre hack – at least coined the funkier “Blob”, applied to the incestuous Washington, DC foreign policy gang, think tanks, academia, newspapers (from the Washington Post to the New York Times), and that unofficial Bible, Foreign Affairs magazine.
A Dem presidency, right away, will need to confront the implications of two wars: Cold War 2.0 against China, and the interminable, trillion-dollar GWOT (Global War on Terror), renamed OCO (Overseas Contingency Operations) by the Obama-Biden administration.
Biden became the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1997 and was the chair in 2001-2003 and again in 2007-2009. He paraded as total Iraq War cheerleader – necessary, he maintained, as part of GWOT – and even defended a “soft partition” of Iraq, something that fierce nationalists, Sunni and Shi’ite, from Baghdad to Basra will never forget.
Obama-Biden’s geopolitical accomplishments include a drone war, or Hellfire missile diplomacy, complete with “kill lists”; the failed Afghan surge; the “liberation” of Libya from behind, turning it into a militia wasteland; the proxy war in Syria fought with “moderate rebels”; and once again leading from behind, the Saudi-orchestrated destruction of Yemen.
Tens of millions of Brazilians also will never forget that Obama-Biden legitimized the NSA spying and Hybrid War tactics that led to the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff ,the neutralization of former President Lula, and the evisceration of the Brazilian economy by comprador elites.
Among his former, select interlocutors, Biden counts warmonger former NATO secretary-general Anders Fogh Rasmussen – who supervised the destruction of Libya – and John Negroponte, who “organized” the contras in Nicaragua and then “supervised” ISIS/Daesh in Iraq – the crucial element of the Rumsfeld/Cebrowski strategy of instrumentalizing jihadis to do the empire’s dirty work.
It’s safe to game that a Biden-Harris administration will oversee a de facto NATO expansion encompassing parts of Latin America, Africa and the Pacific, thus pleasing the Atlanticist Blob.
In contrast, two near-certain redeeming features would be the return of the US to the JCPOA, or Iran nuclear deal, which was Obama-Biden’s only foreign policy achievement, and re-starting nuclear disarmament negotiations with Russia. That would imply containment of Russia, not a new all-out Cold War, even as Biden has recently stressed, on the record, that Russia is the “biggest threat” to the US.
Woke Kamala in da house
Kamala Harris has been groomed to rise to the top from as early as the summer of 2017. Predictably, she is all for Israel – mirroring Nancy Pelosi (“if this Capitol crumbled to the ground, the one thing that would remain is our commitment to our aid…and I don’t even call it aid…our cooperation with Israel.”
Kamala is a hawk on Russia and North Korea; and she did not co-sponsor legislation to prevent war against Venezuela and, again, North Korea. Call her a quintessential Dem hawk.
Yet Kamala’s positioning is quite clever, reaching two diverse audiences: she totally fits into The Blob but with an added woke gloss (trendy sneakers, the advertised affection for hip hop). And as an extra bonus, she directly connects with the “Never Trumper” gang.
Never Trumper Republicans – operating especially in Think Tankland – totally infiltrated the Dem matrix. They are prime Blob material. The ultimate neo-con Never Trumper has got to be Robert Kagan, husband of Maidan cookie distributor Victoria “F**k the EU” Nuland; thus the running joke in many parts of West Asia, for years, about the “Kaganate of Nulandistan”.
Kagan, self-glorified and idolized as a star conservative intellectual, is of course one of the co-founders of the dreaded neo-con Project for the New American Century (PNAC). That subsequently translated into gleeful Iraq War cheerleading. Obama read his books in awe. Kagan forcefully backed Hillary in 2016. Needless to add, neo-cons of the Kagan variety are all rabidly anti-Iran.
On the money front, there’s the Lincoln Project , set up last year by a gang of current and former Republican strategists very close to, among others, Blob stars such as Daddy Bush and Dick Cheney. A handful of billionaires gleefully donated to this major anti-Trump super-PAC, including J. Paul Getty’s heir Gordon Getty, the heir of the Hyatt hotel empire John Pritzker, and Cargill heiress Gwendolyn Sontheim.
Those Three Harpies
The key Blob character in a putative Biden-Harris White House is Tony Blinken, former deputy national security adviser during Obama-Biden and arguably the next National Security Adviser.
That’s geopolitics – with an important addendum: former national security adviser Susan Rice, who was unceremoniously dropped from the Vice-President shortlist to Kamala’s profit, may become the next Secretary of State.
Rice’s possible contender is Senator Chris Murphy, who in a strategy document titled “Rethinking the Battlefield” predictably goes undiluted Obama-Biden: no “rethinking”, really, just rhetoric on fighting ISIS/Daesh and containing Russia and China.
Suave Tony Blinken used to work for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in the 2000s, so no wonder he’s been very close to Biden even before the first Obama-Biden term, when he rose to the top as deputy national security adviser and then, in the second term, as deputy Secretary of State.
Close to Blinken is Jake Sullivan, who under the protective wing of Hillary Clinton replaced Blinken as national security adviser in the second Obama-Biden term. He will have a top place either in the National Security Council or the State Department.
But what about The Three Harpies?
Many of you will remember The Three Harpies, as I coined them before the bombing and destruction of Libya, and again in 2016, when their remixed version’s push for a glorious sequel was rudely interrupted by Trump’s victory. When it comes to Return of the Blob, this is the 5K, 5G, IMAX version.
Of the three original Harpies, two – Hillary and Susan Rice – seem set to snatch a brand new power job. The plot thickens for Samantha Power, former US ambassador to the UN and the author of The Education of an Idealist, where we learn that such “idealist” rips Damascus and Moscow to shreds while totally ignoring the Obama-Biden drone offensive, kill lists, “leading from behind” weaponizing of al-Qaeda in Syria re-baptized as “moderate rebels”, and the relentless Saudi destruction of Yemen.
Samantha seems to be out. There’s a new Harpy in town. Which brings us to the real Queen of the Blob.
The Queen of the Blob
Michele Flournoy may be the epitome of the Return of the Blob: the quintessential, imperial functionary of what former CIA analyst Ray McGovern brilliant christened MICIMATT (the Military-Industrial-Congressional-Intelligence-Media-Academia-Think-Tank complex).
The ideal imperial functionary thrives on discretion: virtually no one knows Flournoy outside of the Blob, so that means the whole planet.
Flournoy is a former senior adviser to the Boston Consulting Group; the co-founder of the Center for a New American Security (CNAS); a senior fellow at Harvard’s Belfer Center; under secretary of Defense during Obama-Biden; favorite of top Harpy Hillary to be Pentagon chief after 2016; and once again favorite to become Pentagon chief after 2020.
The most delicious item on Flournoy’s CV is that she’s the co-founder of WestExec Advisors with none other than Tony Blinken.
Every Blob insider knows that WestExec happens to be the name of the street alongside the West Wing of the White House. In a Netflix plot, that would be the obvious hint that a short walk of fame straight into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue looms in the horizon for the star protagonists.
Flournoy, more than Blinken, turned WestExec into a certified hit in the Beltway MICIMATT profiting from virtually no P.R. and media blitzes, and talking exclusively to think tanks.
Here’s a crucial glimpse of Flournoy thinking. She clearly states that just a benign American deterrence towards China is a “miscalculation”. And it’s important to keep in mind that Flournoy is in fact the mastermind of the overall, failed Obama-Biden war strategy.
In a nutshell, Biden-Harris would mean The Return of the Blob with a vengeance. Biden-Harris would be Obama-Biden 3.0. Remember those seven wars. Remember the surges. Remember the kill lists. Remember Libya. Remember Syria. Remember “soft coup” Brazil. Remember Maidan. You have all been warned.
“Return” of the blob? I wasn’t aware it ever left. Different caretaker for four years, but same old blob. Watch the cast of characters the new administration (Trump or Biden) appoints. They’ll all come from the same old cast of recycled appointee hacks. Nothing new under the sun in Ol’ DC, never is, never will be. Pay no attention to the currently popular political prefix “neo”: it’s just another trendy affectation in a town that lives on such. Total full-spectrum global warfare: it’s what’s for dinner!
“In a nutshell, Biden-Harris would mean The Return of the Blob with a vengeance”. Yes, the Democratic Party, to which the charismatic JFK belonged, has become the political force of the elite and neocons. No question about that. However, what about the Republican Party and Trump ?
As I have written before, and quoting an analyst, the Democratic and Republican political parties are two hands controlled by the same head, namely Wall Street. And Trump ? I still don’t know what to think of him. Yes, back in 2016 I favored him over Hillary. However, I was none too happy that he had the support of 200 active and retired admirals and generals. Why would high ranking officers back a TV celebrity and businessman who had no political and military experience ? To place a puppet in the White House ? As Lenin stated, the best political opposition is the one you can control.
More than one commentator has stated that Trump’s election in 2016 was a psyops, a con job to fool the domestic working class population, as well as the Russians and Chinese. Well, fooling Russians and Chinese is virtually impossible, but fooling the American masses is not impossible.
So, what are we getting on November 3rd ? It won’t be just an election, but a clash of quadruple perceptions, the same being:
a) The elite controlled Biden verses the (ostensibly) pro working class Trump, who promised to “drain the swamp”, but achieved absolutely nothing with respect to that matter, and
b) The “patriotic” Biden verses the Russian “controlled” Trump, who on top of that is a racist.
These four perceptions have been intermingled, and no doubt are causing plenty of confusion and fear in the heads of many voters, but perhaps not the majority, although the minority is not small in number. This scared minority will vote for Biden, as they have been bamboozled by the neocon media.
What will happen after November 3rd ? The unanimous conclusion is that something will happen, from social disturbances to a civil war. Well, as I have written before, a civil war is virtually impossible, as who would fight it. However, social and ethnic disturbances are very much possible, and will almost certainly happen. We shall see to what extent.
A civil war is not essential for a change. When a country reaches a point where no political figure can command the population and the breakdown of law and order is a threat to national security the choice is between a continued oligarcy (with the support of the military) or a military takeover. In the case of the USA that would make General Mark Alexander Milley Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff a major player.
A military takeover of the USA ? Theoretically it’s possible. However, the elite in the US are no fools. They like to have the elite on their side. About ten years or so ago analysts started reporting on payoff’s to high ranking officers. Generals received millions and colonels hundreds of thousands of dollars. Of course it’s debatable if this is true. However, should the military decide to take over, the question is if it could work. What would the reaction be among the population ?
Thanks for the heads up Pepe and Disaffected. Know any good caves I could hole up in while all of this blows over, or more likely goes down the proverbial Tube and into extinction??
I’m at a loss, as well. The future might well be something like that old biblical admonition: the living will envy the dead.
As shown in this article, insiders from the Democratic Party already have plans in place should Donald Trump win the November election:
The results of the November election could prove to be one of the most significant dividing events in the United States no matter which candidate wins.
In a landslide the losing team goes home w/its tail tucked between its legs and a few bankers jump off of tall buildings, then life goes on.
Trump has Elliot Abrams.
And Mike Pompeo, rookie of the year. Biden will be just as bad but Trump was by no means acceptable. We in the U.S. will not change our ways until we experience a Soviet Union style implosion. Until then we will have either empty suits or dangerous people as President. It is only a matter of who will be occupying the White House when the walls come tumbling down.
“… until we experience a Soviet Union style implosion.”
Trump as a sober Yeltsin; the criminal Oligarchs raiding the national treasury; the Tribe siphoning off whatever they can in the chaos; virtually nothing made locally on the (bare unless China sends it) shelves; a One (elite) Party state; a secret police matrix in total (blackmail) control; and a strident irrational hatred of the ‘Other’ political binary (Soviet Russia that ended three decades ago); and a dispirited population on alcohol and drugs.
The USA first entered this tunnel of horrors with Willy Clinton and the raiding of the Saving banks in the late 1990s — topping out within a decade in the 2007/8/9 global (Wall Street) financial crisis. Since then it has been festering away with biological deviancy, cultural identity confusion and straight out national bankruptcy.
The domestic blindness to this ‘advanced’ state of ugly affairs is simply due to the absence of any mirror capable of capturing and reflecting the true horror show. In reality it is basically Halloween 24x7x365 — Halls of Mirrors within a House of Cards — Fools to the Left; Jokers to the Right; … and no 3rd-Middle in between. A Soviet Union style USSA implosion … ? Just cut off the bloated military funded by the fiat wall(st) paper reserve currency scam and see how quickly the red rouge falls from the gangrenous zombie lips. I’m just waiting for the discourse to start moving to who is going to win the Civil War 2.0 and when.
(Btw, I call it a Trump win by a nose hair or two and another four years of ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’ — but that is just reading the entrails caste by fickle gods, but anything could happen. Why the “T” call? … at the deeper level, what he represents, for all his faults, is an archetypal white aged male standing in contrast with the seeping largely unconscious ‘woke-ism’ of the underclasses seeking Power with a faux postmodern feather duster. Unlike the Yeltsin demise, there appears no ‘Putin’ equivalent in sight yet!)
It was Regan/Bush presiding over the savings and loan debacle from 83 to 89, Clinton came in 1993, just saying.
In 1982, President Reagan signed the Garn-St. Germain Depository Institutions Act.1 It completely eliminated the interest rate cap. It also permitted the banks to have up to 40% of their assets in commercial loans and 30% in consumer loans.
In particular, the law removed restrictions on loan-to-value ratios. It permitted the S&Ls to use federally-insured deposits to make risky loans. At the same time, Reagan cut the budgets of the regulatory staff at the FHLBB. This impaired its ability to investigate bad loans.
Thank you. I was aware of the S&L bailout fiasco/scam but not of these deeper details.
Kudos George, President Reagan and Prime Minister Thatcher are all to often left out of the economic blame game.
Chilling, a bit scaring.
As everyone else here, I read a lot on what showed up in recent history, in former US administrations, on past cold warriors on key positions.
But the final words of Pepe s analysis ” you have all been warned” sound sharp and simple frightening to our ears.
And the big , defining question comes:
— What IF this small gang of sinister characters really gets key decision positions INSIDE A WEAK, brainless, mentally faltering presidency?
–What IF this same flock of vacuum minded hawks DOES NT know that the
the hegemonic power of the Empire is over?
Pepe’s article describes the precise thing that frightened me – the return of Obama-Bush-Hillary style carnage.
Of course, Trump was responsible for a lot of deaths, but Trump was not intelligent. Most of the time his foreign policy shot itself in the foot. The resurgent Blob will mend fences with Europe and get their assistance on a new killing spree.
What new wars will Biden start as all the low hanging fruit has been taken, will he ramp things up in Syria, or Ukraine, raise even more tension with Russia, China will be interesting seeing how the Hunter Biden material shows the business connections.
i associate two things with Joe Biden…. 1. Dementia 2. Bunker. Dementia stands for all the choas that is going to be unleashed my this unoriginal and unauthentic human which will lead to ‘Bunker’ part or a thermal world war .. so they ‘the satanists’ put it out right there in front of our faces the up coming reality they want ‘ a crazy man who will lead us to our inhilation’ ….. but the funny thing is how satan has fooled them that they will be save in a ‘bunker’ which is just another type of a grave or tomb.
As always I appreciate Pepe for bringing the hyperlinks and keeping his own commentary brief and thoroughly engrossing.
A brief observation:
* Yesterday (2020-10-30) American NPR had an interview with a “journalist” who was “on the ground” in places like Ukraine, Hong Kong during their “civil unrest”. Now he is “worried” about similarities in the USA. Hmm…
* The print media has been sending similar signals: check out this week’s article from The New Yorker: https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/what-can-you-do-if-trump-stages-a-coup. Summary: professional regime-change consultant sets eyes on USA, disseminates literal guidebooks on color revolution.
So yes, all signs suggest there is some extracurricular activities going on, beyond the usually electoral nonsense.
US of A sat on a wall
US of A had a great fall
All Wall Street’s money and all the Blob’s men
Couldn’t put the USA together again
Following the fall of the Soviet Union, the ensuing scramble for the vast riches of the state by would-be oligarchs (including Bill Browder) was explained by Donald Rumsfeld as a ‘natural’ process reminiscent of the ‘wild West’. Competing ‘wild’ men fought for the prize until eventually one, or a small group, would prevail. THEY would then enforce the peace, THEIR peace, and lay down the Law. Order would be restored and all would be back to normal. Order was restored – by strongman Putin. It was NOT the order expected or planned by Western scavengers, carpetbaggers and fortune-seekers.
Now, the West is falling into disarray, albeit not as suddenly as the collapse of the USSR. Although much slower (unless the petrodollar sinks), the collapse seems inevitable with, unlike in Russia, a possibly prolonged decay. Will a new generation of scavengers and fortune-seekers emerge, as predicted by Rumsfeld?
Pepe could have used a better Title. The subject matter and facts and predictions are spot on regardless.
The War Mania, war crimes, hysterics and demonizations will be like nothing we’ve experienced for fifty years.
The policy lunatics are out of the asylum and off their drugs. There will be no restraints except the missiles of Russia and Iran and, probably, China.
Putin and Shoigu are prepared. The Russians will not hesitate as we saw this week in Syria with the precision decimation of the 200 Islamic radicals and their Turk trainers at their graduation ceremony in Idlib.
The Russians will make graveyards of every command bunker the US loons use to start their next wars.
A Biden victory will be a setback for the world community. Death will be riding a dark horse again. This time the little wars of horror will be nothing compared to what may be unleashed.
Dont warn the incredible unbelievable stupid sheeple. They will just run faster.
Had a talk with some European middle class women who all vote for Biden. They told me they “didnt like Trump’s way”, “his manners” and “his behaviour”, why they voted on Biden because his “manners” was accepted.
All respect for many women, but qua our biological differences we are created with each our complementary area of specialisation.
So far we have women CEO’s in the 4 biggest weapon Corporations in US, woman as Head of CIA and woman as Head of the well known Abu Ghraib prison.
So much for the Wall Street campaign “special female care and peace values”, and if you wanna know why this artificial promotion scheme of women was rolled out, follow the money and TPTB’s obsession with depopulation and control.
How come European women vote in America?
Because they vote Biden?? ROFL!
Trump’s peace genocides Venezuela, Iran, Syria, Lebanon. He ordered the killing of Soleimani but also the killing of Beirut. Giving the land, seas, waters, resources of the Middle East and Africa for an election gig, is not all that honourable, but especially taking the monies of the Gulf States ad infinitum. Changing one’s present and future belief system, new Abrahamic religions to accommodate Israel etc is the most heinous thing you can do to 2 billion Moslems.
You are right about suffering of Muslims. There is meaning in our suffering in this world, that is, it is a purification for us to enjoythe eternal life after the Day of Judgement. God Almighty mentions in Chapter 29, The Spider, Verses 1 – 3
Do they think that they will not be tested when they say we believe, when previous people who said we believe and they were tested…
Most people provide miopic explanation of current workd situation, but I like to look at the very, very big picture by including religious worldview.
The Western middle-class is realising now that their elected officials are all puppets of Satan worshipping elite, and the Elite’s interest is money and power.
If the middle-class stuck to true Christian faith and they mighty have had foresight to call-out these satanic ‘spirit cooking’ leaders. They would have realised that 911 was an inside job to demonise one group while stripping the societies in the West of their liberties. By 2020 everything is in clear view which David Icke has been harping about since early 1990s.
As Muslims we have been foretold that evil will keep rising until Anti-Christ shows up in physical form, but his reign will be short (40 days in our count in his last phase; read “Jerusalem in the Qur’an” by Imran Hosein.
By then people would have been through so much tribulation that they will be able to think and see straight, and recognise the true Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) who will return after 2,000 years and set up a Just World Order, where Justice will be meted out equally regardless of one’s wealth, race or social status.
We have entered that period of major tribulations and great wars, so hang in there and call on God Almighty sincerely for help and HE (Mighty and Majestic) will give you us inner/spiritual insights into nature of things. God Bless the righteous!
Pelosi says Biden will be president no matter what voting is ….after Tuesday. Coup? Uhuh …..
At the end of UN rifles…
I think P.E. missed the point at this one…
The blob was always there… never, AFAIK was out since Eisenhower speech on the USA-MIC…
This has been a very strange year, voting for Trump is the most logical choice between the two.
“It was a very strange year . . .”
No, you don’t have to do that at all, with all the silly social pressure to get you to abide by mini-unsubstantiated accusations such as Beatrice’s “Trump bombed Beirut” you can just cave….and join the Increasingly Popular ………..Pity Party!
With millions of butt-hurt Biden-Harris voters ready to your “Party”……….in less than one week!
SO: Who needs proof??? No proof required! Just make up whatever shit you feel….whatever makes you “feel” good and righteously superior………in the near term…for a few days, weeks or months…..and don’t worry about looking back on your historical judgment’s performance a a few years or a decade from now!
The Blob showed that in 4 years of Russia, Russia, Russia no one needs any proof for ANY accusation.….as long as you can gin up the same unproven absurdities’ adoption in enough other people for a sustained length of time. Right Beatrice???
The same with BF (who has some things to say worth listening to, when he’s not caught up in the same unhappy herd mentality) swallowing the uninformed sentiment in the Tired Old Biden Decree: “You ain’t black if you vote for Trump.”, and allowing such to sway his some times better judgement.
Some people are a lot better in the history of past decades and recent centuries than they are in current history…particularly if they are not HERE….on the ground.
That’s why a Division of Labor…………is in the Natural Order of Things. So, “It’s all good.” so long as you keep in mind where some people shine with A’s and B+’s….and also where, by contrast, their whole thesis is just a mixed up D- mess! Fixated on minusing The Donald in order to “Ace” social acceptance! LOL
If you had your ear to the ground or the grapevine, BF, instead of silly gossip, you might discover that the black vote for Trump IS...the most highest % for any Republican .presidential candidate EVER.…..(.and will be counted.)..and the Hispanic % is higher than even that!
Pity those blacks and browns don’t swallow the “racism” charge from actual racist Joe Biden regarding The Donald…or something of that ilk you uncritically adopted (WHY? to get more “likes” from others that simply don’t know what they are talking about on that score EITHER???) to be at all true. Or they might validate your “He’s a racist.” nonsense.
Anyway for another perspective that reinforces what Pepe has to say that offers a bit more of an antidote to social silliness to that prevalent in these comments…..and with a bit more historical panorama to steel Rod’s will and maybe make the medicine go down a little easier for Anonymous…..Heeeeere’s Harley:
War, Depression, Censorship: It’s The British!
People emailed Harley their questions, and about that he says…..
“There is an underlying theme in today’s questions, as they revolve around how did we get into this situation, of facing a possible Biden presidency, and how can we prevent it. The narrative of “Russia, Russia, Russia” is a British invention, which was useful for a desperate Hillary Clinton when her campaign paid for the discredited Steele dossier, but British intervention didn’t begin in 2016. The use of censorship to protect Anglo-American intelligence operations from being exposed, the promotion of a phony “New Bretton Woods”, and even the removal of Henry Wallace as Vice President to FDR in the 1944 campaign, are all examples of City of London/British intelligence “meddling” in U.S. affairs. The best antidote would be a mandate for a second Trump term, with the explicit intent to, — this time — finally clean out the Anglophile swamp in Washington.”
And in under 15 minutes goes into considerable historical depth……tying the Bigger Issues…..and their continuity….together.

Samantha Power: just when one started to get optimistic that this harpy was no longer front line, she comes out for more, yes more, “anti-conspiracy” censoring on Facebook-the old saying, termites never just go away. Pepe might be too optimistic.
This letter (by the former Apostolic Nuncio of the United States) is incredibly sad:
It is addressed, for help, to the wrong person, Donald J Trump, one of the Global elite which it rails against – those, collectively, responsible for the greatest evil to have ever been foisted on humanity.
However, ignoring the religious aspect of the letter (and the misguided addressee), there is much of truth in it.
We face a bleak future.
If their is a benevolent Deity, god help us.
Well, what IF all of the three unthinkables of yesterday actually simultaneously happen in bad old USofA along the coming weeks up to mid january?
If the covid deathtoll runs in indomitable boosting waves? —God forbid
If a legal, judiciary or whatever-the-sort battle rages dragging on long enough?
If then a few thousands of the 400 million arms-weapons in household and gang hands turn suddenly triggerhappy?
I cant say so for myself but many many of the poverty stricken of the world, of the lefties of the world, of the Asian fed up and China friendly crowds will cheer for a while. Unpatiently waiting for the winds to blow away the ashes of the Empire.
It’s really impossible to change corrupted system. Reality must wipe out it totally. I believe in tyranny of reality.
Thanks Pepe, for a realistic but unfortunately also frightening and bleak look into the future.
Joe Biden is just a short time meal. Really, just listen to the gibberish salat coming from him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AV5HbLI_TdM&feature=youtu.be . And he is to put someone like Erdogan in his place? He will be away asap, and then we have Kamala Harris.
And we would think Hillary would be sitting idly by? I don’t think so. In the abovementioned linked article from 2017 about the Hampton session, it becomes clear that Harris would be the candidate and not Hillary. But hey, Joe has some ‘health issues’ and must retire, who becomes the next VP?
(Kamala, google on ‘Arkancide’).
Hilllary is still so vicious, that short ago she said in an interview that she was ‘born to be president’. OMG.
I’m not so sure that a Dem administration will resore the JCPOA. It’s not a secret that Israel was hell-bent against it, but also that Obama and Bibi, well, didn’t like each other very much. I have a big question mark about this.
Whatever the outcome, I expect a turbulent couple of months. Not very easing given the amount of military and nukes.
No matter who wins on Tuesday or whenever the count ends, we the people lose. Even Pepe who usually has a bright and optimistic outlook is noticing an increasingly menacing future. I agree with Disaffected. the blob never left. It has grown bigger. Covid has added the medical – publlc health team to the military industrial national security police state control apparatus. As Whitney Webb has reported DARPA and the Pentagon are funding the genetic engineering, vaccine, gain of function of pathogens along with the NIH. Can you say immunity passport? Medical Martial Law? Now one doesn’t even need to be a suspected terrorist for one to be under house arrest. I have noticed how the Savings and Loan pillaging was a practice run for the bubble leading to the 2008 meltdown and multi trillion baiilout “They” got away with it then so rinse and repeat with tens of trillions of dollar while everybody is frightened into the cult of corona. I had a dream where I woke up and an old white man with mental problems is President and everybody is wearing masks. It is like the Truman show but with everybody being surveilled..And “they” are so confident that the “great reset” is publicly talked about. Or Bill Gates openly talks about a final solution. to the world population “problem”, And yes, incorporation of women. blacks and other ethnicities into the power structure has not changed a thing. A visiting economist from India I met considered Indira Ghandhi a snake. That hindu facist nationalist Modi is part of the apparatus. It certainly seems that a Soros type color revolution regime change is in the works.
I wonder how all the ‘wokes’ voting for Biden are going to square the circle about enabling a regime that will go forth into the world (again) and slaughter 100s of thousands of black, brown and yellow people. How does that work for #BLM, Maybe only american black lives matter?
Five out of Six BLM members are white.
Obomber signed five Executive Orders to bypass the Congress (as Bush did for Iraq) to bomb Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and drone strikes in Pakistan on the Afghan border, along with continuing the bombing in Afghanistan, several other countries in north Africa, and so on.
They are parading in the streets here for Trump blocking traffic for minutes, (this is important if you are on a lunch break). The only ones who think biden is going to win is the media.
This is why we don’t need any blobs around.
And like the 1958 sci-fi film, all blobs get dealt with.
Trump was elected because people didnt want more of the same as they got under Obama which meant Hillary. Do you think they want a return to it again after 3 years of good Trump eco performance ?
Blobs don’t make comebacks of this type.
The candidate trailing in the polls repeatedly calls the election a fraud. He calls on fascist armed militia to get ready for post-election mayhem. Sounds like another Globalist-Soros-NED-DNC-Bidenist color revolution. Right? See you at Maidan Pepe
Trump is among the last acts of the US Imperium because:
imperial decline progresses by supplanting genuine leadership and public participation with a courtier class responsible only to an oligarchy;
US leadership and citizens can’t tell trusted friend from odious enemy because the enemy looks and acts so much like the US;
an immense military with leadership incapable of winning the smallest wars, or even retaining the allegiance of its junior officers;
praetorian guards are created loyalty only to oligarchs (BORTAC – US Marshals);
the economy is used like a casino to enrich the unworthy;
children are used to punish immigrant families fleeing US imperial cruelty in their own countries;
the most recent generations are the worst educated since 1776 as science, schools, libraries, an independent press, and dissenting voices are crushed by corporate design;
resurgent bigotry is aided by brutally stupid, corrupt police cruelty;
ruthless violence is blessed by empty prayers and Hollywood blockbusters;
smug indifference is widespread for anything that doesn’t touch their own families, or their favourite sport;
vast numbers of citizens parade their ignorance around like they have just married a supermodel.
These are all signs of a society about to collapse with only a minor environmental disaster needed to start the landslide, out of the ecosystem armageddon certain to come.
H.L. Mencken: ‘Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.’
Voltaire: “Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.”
