The headline says it all – why even write the article? Journalism has – of course, and with universal unanimity – become merely the relaying of the statements of Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Fauci is not just an immunologist – he’s an economist, historian, judge, legislator (national, state, county, city and village), manufacturer, landlord, employer, son, daughter, mother, lawyer for both the prosecutor and the defense, employee, renter and, though he blushes when forced to admit it, also the Holy Father worshipped as God by several billion people currently and for a few thousand years.
How should we run the economy? Ask Fauci.
How should prayers be held? Ask Fauci.
How should teachers teach? Ask Fauci.
So what on earth needs to be done about the rebellions taking place across the US other than – ask Fauci?
Why should I desist in writing this way? It has been over four months of Fauci-worship in the US and you can’t just turn that off – it’s not like an economy.
Fauci is the pinnacle of the Western belief that socialism’s “Serve the People” should be replaced with “Serve the wealthy technocrat”. Fauci’s ideas have had more effect on today’s American than Henry Ford multiplied by Abraham Lincoln raised to the power of jazz.
My God, I wish I could I see just one Chinese Cultural Revolution-style public interrogation of a mainstream media journalist about what on earth were they thinking when they unskeptically ran from Fauci’s press conferences to frog march everyone off to the phony, unwinnable coronavirus war, which has now resulted in the current US wave of rebellions.
Frankly, I blame myself for this mess. Somehow – though the how is not determined – my placement in the media class makes me feel culpable for their errors. Somehow, I could have out-shouted them all, or should at least have taken the batteries out of their microphones.
This is not a nonsense article you are reading – it is merely there reflection of there being too many newsworthy things to discuss, and it comes after some 2.5 months of too many newsworthy things to discuss, read and write about. Thus, this column is simply an accurate reflection of everyone’s current state in the US: burnt out, fed up and quite, quite content if the Apocalypse/Day of Resurrection should arrive this afternoon.
Let’s compare the rebellion, police response and media coverage with the Yellow Vests in France – considering that I seem to have been the “mainstream” media member most often at those protests (incredibly, this is true not just for English-language journalists but French-language journalists as well), I have seen all this before and am practically obligated to at least put my stupid two cents out there.
Naaah… to hell with it.
And thus I have just perfectly captured the US zeitgeist: a lousy world is burning, and… what else did they expect? Why should I do anything about it? Hell, not only are the protesters right, but they are long overdue! I am not getting unemployment but I don’t see any reason to go back to work right now, too.
How about that siege of the CNN headquarters in Atlanta? You know that everyone in CNN and all their colleagues were like, “Wait… the average person actually doesn’t like us and slavishly follow our great opinions?” Hahahahahahahahahahahahhahaahaha – what clueless jerks! Did you see how that CNN reporter who got arrested put up ZERO verbal resistance to the cops? Wow, uh, that was a LOT of compliance towards lawbreaking authorities – but that’s how you get that CNN gig; that reporter couldn’t make it in France, that’s for sure. What am I saying – they’d make somebody as compliant as him editor in chief! I feel obligated to write a column on all that, but:
Naaah… to hell with it.
It’s a crazy thought and one I don’t mean but: how many people are currently wishing that millions of people had actually died of coronavirus – then at least then all this economic depression, emotional depression, political depression/repression (and none of those things are even close to being finished) sparked by the Great Lockdown would have at least been “worth it”.
I want to hear it from the mouth of the oracle himself: did Fauci expect unprecedented rebellion to occur as a result of his insanely stupid corona lockdown? Because it did.
Does Fauci still think the biggest public discussion we need to have is about ending the cultural practice of shaking hands, which he famously said he wants to ban?
Will Fauci apologise for any of this?
Get the dunce caps and call the farmers: a hundred thousand low-wage manure spreaders should soon be coming to help out with the crops, and Fauci’s gotta be among them because he needs to get over his germ-phobia. It’s Cultural Revolution time!
“Black man killed by cop in America” is not at all front page news. Fifty people got shot in Chicago over this month’s 3-day Memorial Day weekend – I’m sure 95% of them were Black – and that was not front page news either, and not even in Chicago’s own media! So in response to the rebellions: good! How are those things NOT headlines? Fifty people in one city?! Again?!
The US Mainstream Media is trying to explain the rebellions solely with a lens of race and police violence, but police violence towards Blacks is so routine it’s not at all front page news, sadly. The larger analysis reveals: it’s the Great Lockdown, stupid, and the Everything Bubble 2 economy it popped.
America is a totally, totally screwed up society and for political-moral reasons. That is not a religious condemnation – it is a simple analysis which well over 100 million Americans (at least) certainly agree with. They are the ones protesting tonight, and they will be protesting when the unemployment runs out on August 1, and hopefully they will protesting before and after that as well.
“No justice, no peace” is a really dumb political slogan: Black people and the lower classes never get justice, and they have advocated peace for not just decades but centuries and… it hasn’t worked – it will never work in a capitalist-imperialist system and in a liberal democracy which only protects aristocratic privileges. Due to the forced political dis-education of the average American their political ideas and slogans are woefully, woefully unmodern, outdated and clearly ineffective. This all seems like an idea for a column.
Naaah… to hell with it.
There’s just too much to talk about. Gonna be a long, hot post-Great Lockdown summer.

Susan Rice said – it is Russians, Russians did it
Why, why I am not surprised
NO! No, it was me in my kitchen with WD40, a white turnip maliu float and a pair of black-market red pliers that done it. What a triumph! More details following…. but I can fix it in an instant if you want. All I need is one of Hillary’s fingernails.
And about the news …A true newsworthy day is not where a black man falls asleep when a policeman accidently puts his knee on his neck or where small trucks got flipped over in the street from a strong wind or an orhpanage gets burnt down but where sexual assult is mentioned. Then you will see neighbourhood politicians hanging on to fence posts for dear life for fear of being swept away. In that regard I cannot imagine any girl being infatuated with Joe Biden or Donald Trump without first being given a general anaesthetic
This new angle Russia is behind the riots is a classic red herring and fairy tale which indicates who has been behind the attempts to destroy both US & Russia for the past 250yrs.
We only have to look to the current neoking – Soros – the financing agent of the riots for elite EU interests who want to both control US & Russia, and use the US to attack Russia to comply with their agenda of greed & control.
The history is that both Russia and US were the target of these evil interests going back to 1865 when they got rid of President Lincoln and then a few decades later the Czar Nicholas.
It is time the US & Russia got together to target their resoeuces on these EU devils and force them out.
That will not happen until the all the foreign agents in the US are rooted out of they keys positions in Govt and Corporations they have been placed in.
In the end the US will collapse if something isnt done to right these wrongs.
It takes someone who claims to differ to God, the highest authority, to throw away his pride and ego and admit he was fooled.
This is the essence of humility, which actually translates into strength and power.
*defer to God
It is just a bunch of hooligans, it is not a “rebellion”, they do not riot for any ideological reason. They just like to destroy and steal.
They riot because the democrat controlled media tells them to and the police allows them too. And they will stop the moment the democrats want them to stop.
This entire event is just created by the democrats hoping it will help them re-take power in the white house. They will burn down their home areas and then 99% of them will vote democrat.
(Your racist comments were removed. Mod.)
To say its just a bunch of black hooligans and racists who like to riot and steal because they hate white people is to deny the systemic nature of police violence directed at not only black people, Latinos and other minority groups but against poor white people too. This is not about Democrats or Republicans, Trump or Biden, but about basic human decency. You are obviously entitled to your opinion but no decent human being would condone what was done to George Floyd by that police man. The cases of Kelly Taylor (a homeless White man beaten to death by policemen in 2011), Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and now George Floyd highlight the fact that reform of law enforcement in America is necessary. A state that deploys massive violence against its own citizens will get violence in return. America sees itself as essentially good but the record of America’s crimes of violence, domestically and internationally, is clear. A nation that crosses thousands of miles of ocean to invade another state (Iraq) based on falsified intelligence cannot claim to be good. A state that is supporting Saudi Arabia to bomb Yemen back to the stone age cannot be good. A state that supports and legitimises Israel’s violent appropriation of Palestinian land cannot be good. A nation currently enforcing cruel sanctions against Venezuela and Iran, states that have never attacked America, cannot be good. A nation that attempts to solve all problems, domestic or international, by coercion and violence, cannot be good. When violent disorder and riots erupted on the streets of Hong Kong, American official claimed the perpetrators were fighting for freedom and democracy. Mr Trump, in a tweet, urged President Xi to talk to and negotiate with the rioters. With these protests in America, I would urge Mr Trump to take his own advice.
Tomorrow he will try to tell us it was a fake riot.
I am afraid your comment cannot be accepted, ie. stating that we are dealing with “a bunch of black hooligans and racists”. It’s just not the case.
During the past few years analysts and commentators have openly been asking the question if the US is heading towards a new civil war. I responded, on quite a number of occasions, that a new civil war is impossible. Who would fight it ? Would unemployed or poorly payed Americans leave their families and join up some newly created army, waving flags ? The answer is ‘no’.
However, I did point out that wide scale social and political disturbances, resembling a civil war, are indeed possible. Take a look at what happened in New Orleans in 2005. When the city became flooded, 50 % of the police force stayed home, protecting their families. Of the remaining 50 %, some 25 % showed up for duty, while the remaining 25 % went on a looting rampage, which was even shown on the Internet.
What we currently have is a situation resembling that of New Orleans in 2005. People are not protesting because one Afro-American was killed by the police. They are protesting at what the US has been turned into, a feudal state run by the elite, whose members number less than half of one percent. To these protestors politicians are nothing more than entertainers while the police are nothing more than feudal retainers, existing to protect the elite, which even has the audacity to give its self tax breaks (it’s surprising these acts alone did not cause rebellions).
If you take into account the situation in the US today, the gigantic foreign and domestic debts, the fact that the dollar is printed backed by nothing, the number of people on food stamps, the number of unemployed, the number who work part time, the number who work full time and are poorly payed, the number who live pay check to pay check, the cost of living, etc., then you have preconditions for wide scale social unrest and break up of the US, all the more so since the US already had one civil war, with the memory of the Confederacy still fresh in peoples minds.
Can this situation be overturned ? Only if the US elite gives up it’s imperial status within the country, something it certainly will not do. Why should it, when for years this very same elite has been preparing hideaways in such countries as New Zealand and Tasmania, the two top favorites.
And, what does all this mean ? It means the US elite will follow the example of the ancient Roman elite and go all the way with it’s policies. Should a financial collapse occur, the elite will, of course, be the first to run away.
Anon, not hooligans, they are paid goons. I read an interesting article talking about about 1200 white people shot by the cops in the States, and nobody said a boo. They do it as long as they get their $50 (proverbial).
Nah. You’re wrong and you’re tossing your own petty prejudices out as fact. There are even sympathetic demonstrations in other countries around the world, so just do yourself a favor and sit down.
In Australia, we call those ‘sympathetic demonstrators’ Rent a Mob.
We are at the early stages of civil war in US. These protests are well coordinated by establishment, Deep State, Trump’s opponents…call them what ever you want. They are obviously pushing for complete chaos. Than they will blame Trump for not being able to control what is happening and go after Trump’s head, as an ultimate goal. They are well aware elections are not bringing any chance of winning, Russiagate is not working, so chaos, race conflicts seem to be their next step. Desperate one.
Agreed this entire “rebellion” is just a domestic propaganda ploy by the democrats. The entire specacle is just to generate propaganda for the election. If Trump lets the hooligans go wild, they will say he did nothing. And if he orders stricter measure and one or more of the deep-state useful idiots get shot they will say he is a white supremacist that guns down flower loving black people that just want to protests peacefully and lovingly.
While I generally view Trump as a failure. He is still the only opposition president USA has had in a long time, and he is likely the last as well. His election was a fluke, the deep-state was caught off-guard. But since then they have taken many measure to make sure there is no repeat.
That is a good observation. When you say; “call them what ever you want”, I call them Marxists, and they are all following the lead of the UN, or in this particular case the WHO , who has been recorded working with the CIA since 1947. When one considers ‘Event 201’ from October 2019, and their little video, it must be obvious that this event had been planned well beforehand and again the Military Games in Wuhan, when even the French team believed that when they left they were not feeling totally healthy, shall I say.
Of course any Australian watching event 201 would recognise Jane Halton, the recently retired top Federal bureaucrat, who fitted in so well with her Feminist colleagues such as Kathryn Campbell, Glenys Beauchamp and Rosemary Huxtable. and then the 2017 legislation in readiness for the ‘next’ Pandemic, and when one stops and thinks about it, the most obvious manner to ensure that pandemics, or epidemics or even small outbreaks of infectious diseases is a healthy lifestyle, and of course, none of us these days enjoy a ‘healthy’ lifestyle do we.
That legislation enables a little bureaucrat with absolutely no expertise in public understanding issues inane instructions such as the continued washing of hands, of wearing facemasks of not shaking hands or any similar human interaction that has survived for over 2000 years, and of course social distancing and the closure of schools and places of worship. But of course, these do not constitute a Marxist takeover do they.
The destruction of jobs and of course the economic collapse ensures the continued demise of our present society, and the blame is always on China, not the real architects of this destruction, and the other little efforts to blame the incumbent Trump, or in Australia Scmo, and then finally the required BLM riots after the death of a black man due to police violence, which as you have stated is almost a weekly event.
But then I am reminded of Robbie Burns and his; “The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men Gang aft a-gley.”, and I wonder as to the cost to be inflicted on the innocents of this world.
Aye laddie, same costs the innocent have always payed since usury raised it’s greedy head.
Of which the Irish have always paid dearly! It’s little wonder that the Irish love music, poetry and fighting, not necessarily in that order. Never forget Montague’s, oops sorry Williams little Battle of the Boyne in 1690 which created the Bank of England in 1693. The only English that fought in that battle was the cavalry under Lord Marlborough.
This is not a planned occurrence. This is the failure of another democratic experiment. All democratic experiments in history end this way. It’s in the history books of past generations and the writings of past authors like Albert Pike in the third lecture of his book, “Morals & Dogma.”
Our institutions and justice system has become outdated and rotten to the core. Can’t fix what is rotten. Have to start over with new seeds. This means administrative law has to be suspended or reformed.
All our levels of government and justice system is run on administrative statutes that make up a repressive system of rules and regulations that strangle creativity and progress. This system can only respond to the current rebellion in progress by applying force. It knows no other options. So one of two things is going to happen. The President will call in the Military and crush the rebellion; with many dead, or with the killing of civilians, the rebellion will catch fire and crush some of the governments. I say some of the governments because some States have enough people with common sense to avoid complete breakdown.
The american public is pissed. There is no recourse through the courts because the justice system is corrupted and controlled by the one’s who are controlling the destructive course of this nation. The only recourse left is rebellion which in this occasion includes looting and destruction of property. Notice how the governors and mayors have no solutions and are laying low. Different from when the lockdown was imposed on the people and these same governors and mayors were acting like tyrants. When the voice of the people were subdued the tyrants were acting tough and now that the people are fired up; due to their doing, the tyrants seem to be cowering. And of course the President sees this and is rubbing their noses in their own hubris.
I do think we will see the military in the streets and there is going to be a lot of looters shot dead. Many people are afraid of these looters and destructive individuals that is taking this rebellion in the wrong direction.
The immediate problem we face is the unemployment of millions of people. How is this to be solved? It won’t be solved by doing nothing. Government will have to solve it with work programs similar to what President Roosevelt did in the 1930s. We are homo sapiens which means we are built to work with our hands & mind. This brings contentment to the human spirit. Right now there is no contentment in the masses of unemployed rioting and demonstrating on the streets today. Thank you Dr. Fauci for your shortsightedness, cf. you burn down the forest to save a tree.
This country is in serious trouble. Aside from a rebellion we are facing a financial collapse. This really compounds our troubles. Everyone at all levels of our society is being affected. I appeal to President Trump not to take us to war to solve our unemployment problem but rather mobilize the unemployed to rebuild our infrastructure and build new towns with light manufacturing to ease the crowding in the cities.
This people needs a vision to follow. Make this country great and drop the again. The past is dead so let the dead bury the dead. Suspend administrative law to make this happen because the courts are full of corrupt man that will fight progress in the name of party interests. Democracy is dead. When everyone realizes that we are living in a failed democracy then we can discard it and move on to a society that respects our true purpose in life which is to develop the potentials put in us by our creator.
I’m sorry Thunderbird but the riots were planned, which is why we now have them in England and Australia.
Pure anarchy and it has all been planned. End of story!
Yes Andrew, God planned it. God is all present so
god is present in each of us.So influencing everyone’s mind at the same time to an action that produces a certain result is a more reasonable predilection than a wondering mind that hooks onto every thought that creates drama in an otherwise uneventful atmosphere.
There is a mood in the people that cannot be planned.
I will disagree with you about the planning. There is a mood, that has been stoked like a fire, it was subtle and small. Because of the ever present racial inequality in the US and the economic downslide all it took was the news media to drop the George Floyd match into the fire to start a flame. Then they stoked the flames with anarchists bussed into cities to protest and boom—a blaze. People are easily led. The young people in America have been conditioned to protest anything without actually being able to hold a single logical conversation about what they are protesting, and have now joined forces with the anarchists with out realizing who and what the anarchists are. (Thank you TV and public educators).
So yes, it can be planned.
It was not God that planned these events, but rather ‘the serpent’.
And the descendants of Adam will again be kicked out of the Garden of Eden, and perhaps this time the goy will be permitted to enjoy those gifts given to them by God, especially from the Tree of Knowledge so that they may know good from evil and perhaps comprehend Newton’s 2nd law which applies as much in physics as it does outside.
And I will agree with you that God is present in each and everyone of us, but then how many of us have time to listen to him, and how many today are taught to be atheists?
America is a uniquely dsyfunctional country with major deep-rooted problems facing it, but because most everyone there is in denial – a kind of cognitive dissonance, if you will – the country continues on a downward spiral into decline and ruin.
The biggest looting that took place recently did not occur at hands of thugs in the street. It was instead pulled off by the President and Congress when they slipped $billions to the 1% and the usual coporate criminals.
Millions of small struggling US businesses did not get or see a dime out of the huge sums of money that their supposed government funneled through the big banks.
98% of the $trillions went straight to the well-heeled coporations that have lawyers on retainer, who are well practised in interpreting and navigating the arcane language used to code the legislation governing how to qualify for and access these funds.
Accordingly, Mom and Pop businesses, are left out of the loop.
When Senator Rubio and his pals in the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee recently voted to ensure that the $38 Billion that Obama promised to Israel gets delivered – even if the US economy goes into a depression – CNN and the other MSM darlings did not report it.
I only managed to read about it from a gloating Israeli Paper.
So here you have a country facing an unprecedented economic and possibly social crisis, and its elected officials preoccupy themselves with ensuring that US tax payers continue to be legally obligated to fund a foreign country to the tune of a “minimum” of $10.5 Million per day, and no one in rhe country are allowed to even discuss it.
And then they wonder way their country is in the wretched state that its in?
Their government issues threats and ultimatums to other countries on a daily basis and it traffics in sanctions and sow war and dissention abroad, and it citizens somehow want to have domestic bliss at home?
Wake up Americans!
No matter what the MSM say, its not the Russians or the Chinese or Iranians or the Cubans or the Venezuelians or Al Qaedia that is causing you all these problems.
Your problems and their solutions lie within.
And please note that this (Removed language,MOD) did not begin with Trump, but he sure as hell is doing his best to exercerbate things and speed up the process.
S-400, you said “America is a uniquely dysfunctional”. I’ll say to you: “There is nothing dysfunctional about American society”. It’s no different than any other society influenced by the Hollywood. The difference is that as Andrew said it above “Marxists” are targeting the States at this moment. We can all guess why: “November is nearing” and the Democrats are “dead in the water with no viable opposition to Trump”. I have just come across the suggestion “the protests might spill across the Canadian border”, as if this had anything to do with Canada. But, all we have to do is go back three+ years and we will see the repeat of the events and protests “I did not vote for Trump he is not my president” as if we give a hoot if they did or not, the fact is they lost, but they refuse to accept the fact that they are looking in the face of another loss.
There may not be an election in November. The government as we once knew it no longer exists. Administrative Law is the law of the land; not the Constitution. To prove my point watch how the Supreme Court rules on matters of law. They rule on matters relating to Administrative procedures; not the Constitution. Their latest ruling on churches remaining closed on governors orders was based on administrative rules & regulations not the first amendment.
“We are at the early stages of civil war in US. These protests are well coordinated by establishment, Deep State, Trump’s opponents…call them what ever you want. They are obviously pushing for complete chaos. Than they will blame Trump for not being able to control what is happening and go after Trump’s head, as an ultimate goal. They are well aware elections are not bringing any chance of winning, Russiagate is not working, so chaos, race conflicts seem to be their next step. Desperate one.” CoronaGate has also failed and added further to their desperation
“Wake up Americans!”
So, you are still hoping and expecting for a miracle that americans will wake up? Might as well hope for the resurrection of the Roman Empire with all of its military glory.
I like your analyses. But there is one thing you left out. We, the victims of american imperialism who live in third-world countries, are used to very austere lives. We will always survive. What is happening in the USA now is nothing but the hands of KARMA, the greatest bitch of them all. She has come to collect her dues. And we, who have always been relegated to the sidelines, will watch with glee at such a wonderfully live entertainment. What can be more satisfying than watching your Tormentor being tormented.
We are watching all these with ice-cold beer and newly roasted selected peanuts we ourselves planted.
P.S. We are self-sufficient. For our medicinal needs, we do not use the trash churned out by Big Pharma. We use ginger, turmeric, garlic and many more herbs from Mother Nature. We will always survive. But will the wasteful, bratty, solipsistic, brainwashed, addle-brained Americans survive?
“karma” has nothing to do with present conditions in the USA – the country has a black problem since the civil rights various acts in 1964 gave them something to bitch about given their natural condition.
Americans are not racists, they discriminate against low IQ dominated groups – who carry risks and costs that no one wants to fund or associate given they have no upside – no value or reward – so they minimize their interaction.
not more complicated than that.
cops are on the receiving end of hate, since the crime 80-90% is committed by the same groups and they stand in the way of crime – so obviously they are beat up in the press
The US is a very very very quiet place without these groups
Ugly racist comment. You say the blacks are low IQ and so resources should not be spent on them. Delete all of them then your USA is the good pretty puritanical mayflower USA.
They are here, and they have been used as an economic resource to make USA the greatest country in the world and the richest oligarchs on the planet. Now they deserve restitution and justice. Till white america reconciles with that, you will never have peace.
They deserve a seat at every table where decisions are made and its the duty of the govt to uplift that society. You’d rather sweep that race off as you have extracted what you want.
I do not think that David’s comment was ugly nor racist. And of course he is entitled to his opinion, after all somebody once stated that he may not agree with a statement, but he would defend to his death the right to make it.
And I have noted over the years that things ‘given’ are very rarely valued to the extent of things that are earnt.
I have also noted in life that frequently things that are given are often taken back.
And I think Malcolm X nailed it when he stated that his enemies were ‘WASPS’. or wealthy Anglo Saxon Protestants, except that those wasps went to the kirk on a Saturday. (N.B. all Anglo Saxons are white, so the word white was used to hide the enemy)
”Americans are not racists, they discriminate against low IQ dominated groups”
The danger with harbouring such beliefs is that, while certainly boosting ”morale”, there is always the risk of taunting reputable, international enemies along these lines too. The average US bigot’s hysterical defamations against the Russians and the Chinese show that:
a) Pindos are racists
b) For filthy people, everything/everybody else is dirty.
”The US is a very very very quiet place without these groups.”
Nope. The US is a very, very, very noisy, crazy, and violent place, only marginally because of its social/racial stratification. There is something called national character which, in the case of the US, amounts to psychopathy on steroids. Pindos delight in bloodshed, depravity, and practicing evil at home and abroad. They cannot and will not voluntarily become a normal people, since raping the planet is what makes them feel exceptional and indispensable.
Reports of the death of Cognitive dissonance, were obviously baseless, thank you.
Well, you said the ‘R’ word.
Does anybody really think the Roman empire collapsed because a bunch of German wet-backs swam across the Rhine? Did the plebian mobs really drive out the corrupt emperors?
Only in English schoolbooks and Hollywood romance videos.
Anyone who thinks this is the start of US Civil War 2.0 is wishfully hoping. The biggest clue to 2.0 comes when the white guys with all the guns take to the streets……………..then it’s Game On.
Post great lockdown summer? No post about it yet in Canada. Not even in my rural community. It is as bad or worse. We have our version of Dr. Fauci in Dr. Tam who is reported to have said that it is ok to protest. Just don’t scream! We are still mostly locked down and in some cases I’ve noticed restrictions are even worse. There are still a lot of people walking around with these silly and useless masks, very proud that they are doing their duty, unlike terrible people such as myself who are endangering all mankind. It’s the virus! The local press was sure to announce yesterday ‘the county has another case of Covid19’ and with that the sniping and blaming started again. It’s the fault of the city people coming to their cottages! And the city people have had just about enough of it. So, just as I expected, those who manufactured this crisis have been very successful. Not only are we not able to speak to each other but when we do it is no longer in a civil manner. When people blame those who had a house party with 15 people for spreading the virus I suggest that if they are so afraid, they should stay locked in their house where they will be safe. They don’t seem to like that suggestion. The bad repercussions from this event are going to be far worse than the Corona virus.
Must be a different part of Canada, no such things happening in frosty Manitoba. They are letting us out……lol, was never stuck in, not here, more of a personal choice, as for Dr. Tamscam, she’s a joke.
“Donald Trump says ‘I am your law and order president’ as he orders ‘heavily-armed soldiers’ to D.C. and threatens to deploy them nationwide – as peaceful protesters are tear-gassed outside the White House so Trump can walk out for a photo” …Daily Mail
Was this not the plan from the start? His agents provocateurs, imbedded in the nation’s police forces, will see to it that the riots will escalate and the situation gets completely out of control. It will be all the excuse Trump needs to send in the military and declare martial law. That will raise his standing with the Trumpsters and insure that he will not have to face any real opposition in November.
This is not a real rebellion any more than the Maiden Square coup staged by neocons like Victoria Nuland was. We are being bamboozled by the consummate con man, Donald J. Trump. The future is very dark. May Heaven help us all.
You are all partially right in your particular observances.
The greater challenge is making sense of the whole, the more universal principles at work here in what Ramin poses…..the obvious….but discordant connection between the Two Main Events……SO FAR..(WAIT!)
I need to do a parody of that 60s song for the Cafe!
https://youtu.be/Zx06XNfDvk0 Down Town Petula Clark
Unlocked Town (I think I’ll call it.) Here’s what I have to work with, not yet parodied:
“When you’re alone
And life is making you lonely,
You can always go downtown
When you’ve got worries,
All the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know, downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?”
How can you lose?
Let me count the ways………….
So much rich irony to work with, ……so little time!
Frank got into it with the richest Irony, last night. I urge anonymous and other over-simplifiers of both the black and the white of it…… the right and left brain variety of it……. to focus on a particular face whose humanity makes Fauci’s appear all the more weasley and rat-like:..
.and I believe that face of an anguished young black woman for peaceful protest……….transcends the differences between Ramin and Frank ideologically……….and connects them most ironically in terms of some advancement in the Fraternite extolled in the French Revolution….wherein Schiller observed that “A Great Moment in History……………..has found……A Little People.” and Beethoven continued working on the problem choosing Schiiler’s Ode to Joy…as the choral centerpiece…….of his greatest symphony, whose lyrics end as follows::
Seid umschlungen, Millionen!
Be embraced, Millions!
Diesen Kuß der ganzen Welt!
This kiss to all the world!
Brüder, über’m Sternenzelt
Brothers, above the starry canopy
Muß ein lieber Vater wohnen.
There must dwell a loving Father.
Ihr stürzt nieder, Millionen?
Are you collapsing, millions?
Ahnest du den Schöpfer, Welt?
Do you sense the creator, world?
Such’ ihn über’m Sternenzelt!
Seek him above the starry canopy!
Über Sternen muß er wohnen.
Above stars must He dwell.
AND…from today’s LPAC Lead, .continuing Ludwig’s uplifting work:
“In city after city we see the contrast between African Americans in anguished protests against police killings of unarmed Black Americans, and flash mobs of anarchist rioters, some of whom are clearly veterans and professionals at burning, beating, and destroying, and find palettes full of bricks mysteriously placed along their way to their night riots. We don’t yet know the organizers. But the Hong Kong riots deeply involved British Empire intelligence, and a group of former British foreign secretaries has formed to pat themselves on the back for the British “lead” in trying to overthrow China in Hong Kong.
There are plenty around the world who want to troll the ironies against President Donald Trump; or against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who had called the Hong Kong riots and beatings “a beautiful sight”; or against governors who kept people in their houses for three months because of the coronavirus, now all for naught.
But what matters is that tens of millions had low-wage jobs and no productive future before the pandemic, and now have lost those jobs; while Americans in the cities have been unable for 20 years to get supposedly “reformed, reorganized, retrained” police forces to stop these killings.
What matters is visibly building a new, different future—the future just glimpsed in the American return to space May 30 and the envisioned return to the Moon in four years to start our march into the Solar System.
We could probably stand the help in that endeavor from our Russian…..and even our Chinese Brothers!
Be very clear on one thing Mr. Mazaheri, this is not a popular uprising. It is a cointel ridden ( the violent rioting, Anti fa section) operation infested by the privileged young off spring of Governors, judges, mayors etc in order to force Trump to usher in repressive means of controlling the population which they will then refine. If there are not outright criminal elements already involved, there soon will be.
There are no political, class based slogans. It isn’t about politics for the people–it is about keeping power from the people by disorientating the younger generation of all classes. Note how there is no rioting in Baltimore. The leadership there came to power after their community’s break down during the Obama administration. Mostly Black city, Mostly Black victims ( mostly ignored by the MSM) so what is the difference?
The current Leadership has some degree of integrity and vision—these are both in short supply in the USA.
Leadership: my mother tells the story of her father, owner of the one banker in a small rural community in SE Washington state, who stood outside their bank during the 1929 rush on the banks across the country and talked the people out of breaking their bank. One of the few in the area who was able to survive. He made a pact with the people. Everyone could withdraw a certain amount, including himself depending on the reserves . She said he had to creep into the bank at night to take out money, then drive to another town across the Washington/Idaho border to a Western Union in order to wire her money for her college tuition.
Yes, he cheated at bit, but she said everyone bit the bullet in the town and they all made it through–there was money the next spring for seeds to plant the crops.
”Fauci is not just an immunologist – he’s an economist, historian, judge, legislator (national, state, county, city and village), manufacturer, landlord, employer, son, daughter, mother, lawyer for both the prosecutor and the defense, employee, renter and, though he blushes when forced to admit it, also the Holy Father worshipped as God by several billion people currently and for a few thousand years.”
With such copious merits to show for him, Fauci alone could topple the entire Axis of Evil, LOL. When is Trump going to send Fauci to Iran, Syria, or Venezuela?
Answer: not soon enough, LOL! We must share glorious Dr. Fauci and allow him to turn the rest of the world into a similar haven of peace and stability!
I’ll tell you what Fauci IMO is. He’s shown he’s an uniter, a decision maker and humble. America largely misses that lately.
Read Judt Mikovets book, or watch one of her videos, probably on bitchute. She says Fauci is a criminal and his desire to make money for Big Pharma was responsible for 20 or so million people dying needlessly of AIDS.
Vitamins D and C plus Zinc will prevent, or cause Covid 19 to be mild, yet Fauci goes on and on about vaccines and expensive drugs. Dr. Dolores Cahill thinks the ICC should look into this as Crimes against Humanity.
Hi Ramin, it is an honor and privilege to have such a commentator on our imperial pathos. You’ve pulled more belly-laughs and guffaws than humanly possible given the subject (Fauci).
Henry Ford X Abraham Lincoln raised to the power of Jazz. That is “too killing”. We could do this all day, year, even. Henry Fonda X Alan Dershowitz, raised to the power of Louis B. Mayer! American (Media) Culture!
I do wonder about that CNN “arrest” footage. Something seems laughably off. I keep thinking of CNN Gulf War 1 footage. I humbly (via the anon commentator above, really, Fauci, like Dr. Phil, humble, really? Is he humble like Oprah and Whoopi are humble?) request your perusal.
CNN Gulf Footage (fake)
Motto: Covide et Impera !
I think we might have the ” expected ” kinetic world war by November or shortly after. The humanity took so many bricks in the head that it is a miracle we can still breathe and walk.
PS. I agree with all Fauci’s titles except the doctor ( too dramatic )
I just want to ask you as a journalist with PressTV to take what is reported by Press TV and others about the George Floyd/racial protests in the U. S. With quite a few grains of salt. The fact is that black men are the victims of racism every day. This kind of thing happens a lot and sometimes people die and the news doesn’t cover it. This kind of thing also happens with violence from blacks towards whites and nobody notices.
What is happening with the recent protests that you don’t see on most national news outlets, but the local news is reporting, is that there are some peaceful protests that have sprung up in response to George Floyd’s killing, and had lots of support from both blacks and whites and the police forces, with some cases of police forces marching with the protesters, but there are also protesters and looters and rioters, who have been bussed in from other states and counties, who, once most of the protests are winding down and people start to go home, have begun to riot, destroying property, starting fires and looting, and threatening the police. These are met with opposition from the police, (which makes the news, not the fact that they were out causing harm) and arrested. In one city it was discovered that not one of the persons arrested were even residents of the state they were arrested in. In Atlanta, the protesters couldn’t even tell reporters where they were, they were completely lost. People have reported seeing stacks of bricks and other items placed all along protest routes in advance of the protests, in anticipation of violence. This thing is not going down as it is shown in the news. There are people who are actively trying to take down America. These are also the same people in charge of America and our news media right now. (Not Trump, the people who pulled strings to get him and others into office). Please understand that things are not as they seem.
