  • Malicious Mitt Romney - Au revoir, Pierre Delecto…Don’t let the door hit you on the way out

    American Greatness ^ | 20 Oct, 2023 | Steve Cortes
    Throughout his unremarkable political career, Mitt Romney carefully cultivated the image of the ultimate “nice guy.” Handsome and credentialed, Romney presents himself as some sort of perfect, milquetoast functionary. Governor Romney, then Senator Romney – the perfectly unexceptional, inoffensive face to serve as advocate for Ruling Class prerogatives. But in these late innings of his public life, Mitt shows his inner malice. In his quotes provided to biographer McKay Coppins for a new book on Romney, Mitt finally went on-the-record to express his disdain for people he publicly flattered, and his revulsion for the conservative movement he supposedly represented. Romney...

    [NEW YORK] JUNE 20TH The O’Keefe Media Group has published a new story focusing on perhaps James O’Keefe’s most powerful investigative subject to date, BlackRock Inc. In the footage, a BlackRock Recruiter named Serge Varlay describes how BlackRock is able to ”run the world” in about 7 minutes of riveting undercover footage. The footage was captured over the course of several meetings in New York by one of OMG News’ rockstar undercover journalists. *** Serge Varlay told our journalist that BlackRock manages $20 trillion dollars worldwide. According to him, “it’s incomprehensible numbers.” BlackRock has over $9.5 trillion of assets under...

    Since Biden is little more than a front man for a highly motivated team of political operatives led by former President Barack Obama or the diabolic WEF Klaus Schwab or some equally malevolent dark political entity, the country has been seized by the totalitarian clique as his administration targets the First Amendment as if free speech is tyrannical permitting government to criminalize political dissent. At the same time, the Biden Administration has allowed an invasion of titanic proportions at the southern border as UN-funded NGO’s threaten US sovereignty with an expected infiltration of up to one million illegal immigrants awaiting...

    PJ Media ^ | 21 Nov 2022 | Ben Bartee
    "Democracy™ is on the ballot,” went the incessant, mindless talking point, over and over, pushed by glassy-eyed Democrat Party surrogates this election cycle. And they’re going to recycle that talking point for as long as possible, because that’s all they’ve got. The benefit of promoting Democracy™ as the central selling point to elect Democrats is that the term is amorphous. The vast majority of targeted voters who hear about the importance of Democracy™ won’t ever really think critically about what it entails or, more importantly, whether it actually exists. Sad to say, it doesn’t. Democracy™ in America in 2022 is...

    ...While Americans have little to cheer about a government program handing out money to its allies and donors, not to mention Tesla owners and the Bay Area elite, Bill Gates is happy.“Everybody wants to be part of this,” Carmichael Roberts, the head of Bill Gates's green energy investment fund, gushed. “The calls that I’m getting now — tremendous, already."Gates was described as having personally lobbied Senator Manchin and Schumer in "anticipation of a rare moment in which significant federal dollars might be secured for the clean-energy transition." Billions of those dollars, ripped out of the hands of truck drivers, veterans...

    (There's no link in the header to a search for "C-Span Populism"; I will put it in a comment in HTML.) As a populist, I learned that elites do have a legitimate interest in avoiding being overwhelmed by the numerically superior common people. But in what I would remark as this highly, technologically "articulated" world (everything like a linked and hinged part in a vastly enormous machine), elites have the unfair advantage of having the power to permanently rig the game. More important to me than Plato's 5 political classes (in the notes below) is the several traditional occupational classes...

    Tablet Magazine ^ | June 14, 2022 | JENNIFER BILEK
    One of the most powerful yet unremarked-upon drivers of our current wars over definitions of gender is a concerted push by members of one of the richest families in the United States to transition Americans from a dimorphic definition of sex to the broad acceptance and propagation of synthetic sex identities (SSI). Over the past decade, the Pritzkers of Illinois, who helped put Barack Obama in the White House and include among their number former U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker, current Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker, and philanthropist Jennifer Pritzker, appear to have used a family philanthropic apparatus to drive...

    Moscow, June 9, Interfax - A bill prohibiting assemblies, rallies, marches and demonstrations at railway stations, in schools and in buildings of public administration bodies has been submitted to the State Duma. A relevant initiative was published in the State Duma database of the legislative activities on Thursday. Its authors are a group of State Duma and Federation Council members, in particular, Andrey Klimov, Vladimir Dzhabarov, Vasily Piskaryov, and Andrey Lugovoy. Under the bill, the current law will outline places where assemblies, rallies, marches and demonstrations will be prohibited. These places include religious buildings and facilities, as well as on...

    ... The microprocessor unleashed a torrent of technological change. Much of it was ornamental, but some of it was truly novel, which triggered our collective amnesia about the human condition. It seems ridiculous now, but at the dawn of the internet age people thought it would usher in the long-promised age of democratic tranquility and equality. Instead, America has become despotic and authoritarian. If you could transport fascists from a century ago to this age, they would assume that fascism had carried the day in the great ideological wars of the 20th century. Everything in American life is now controlled...

    Washingtoon Post ^ | 4-29-2022 | Catherine Belton and Greg Miller
    In the two months since Russia invaded Ukraine, the silence — and even acquiescence — of the Russian elite has started to fray. Even as opinion polls report overwhelming public support for the military campaign, amid pervasive state propaganda and new laws outlawing criticism of the war, cracks are starting to show. The dividing lines among factions of the Russian economic elite are becoming more marked, and some of the tycoons — especially those who made their fortunes before President Vladimir Putin came to power — have begun, tentatively, to speak. For many, the most immediate focus has been their...

    In his first public appearance after five years of semiofficial banishment, Curtis Yarvin began to cry. It was late February 2020 and Yarvin was the special guest at a live podcast in Los Angeles. A graphic promoting the event shows the computer engineer turned political philosopher, then 46 years old, wearing his black leather motorcycle jacket and wire-framed glasses and staring out with practiced intensity. Over Yarvin’s left shoulder floats a bust of the deceased rapper Lil Peep. The moody digital aesthetic is called vaporwave. Ma, Pa, have you heard of vaporwave? It is a very of-the-moment style that uses...

    America’s most powerful, elite institutions now cooperate to misinform the public and suppress dissent. It’s hard to think otherwise during the arc of the Hunter Biden laptop story that turned out to be true. In late March, The New York Times reporters wrote that they authenticated email “obtained by The New York Times from a cache of files that appears to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr. [Hunter] Biden in a Delaware repair shop.” This is in reference to a story the New York Post broke in 2020, shortly before the presidential election, about emails sent from the...
  • [VIDEO] Well, Now We Know Why Bill Gates Wants Everyone Eating Synthetic Meat…And It’s Not For The “Environment”

    If you’ve ever wondered why Bill Gates owns more farmland than any other private citizen in the United States, we may know the answer… To control meat consumption. If livestock owners don’t have places to grow food for their animals to eat, they can’t keep the animals… and when the animals go bye-bye, in walks the “fake meat industry.” “This is a conversation we need to have. Bill Gates owns more farmland in the US than any other, and in a time of dwindling supply, he’s pushing the idea of meat elimination. The words of a delusional man.”
  • American Oligarchy

    01/07/2022 3:27:45 AM PST · by Kaslin ^ | January 7, 2022 | Josh Hammer
    To observe that the left and its cheerleading media have treated the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol riot as a solemn occasion would be to understate the point. For the left, the (actually) mostly peaceful demonstrations of that day, which for a small percentage of demonstrators did entail illegal trespassing of the Capitol, represented a watershed moment in the history of our "democracy." Jan. 6 was the day, the narrative goes, where "deplorable" Trumpians attempted to effectuate an "insurrection" and a "coup," seeking to "overturn" the results of the perfect and pristine 2020 presidential election. The...

    The politically motivated and unprecedented overreaction to a virus with a 99.5% survival rate was launched in March of 2020, thus unleashing what can best be described as a once-in-a-century fiasco. Nineteen months later it is impossible to look at the United States and the world and not conclude that this country and much of the West is in the grip, not of a virus, but of delusional madness and malevolence. The governing elites have been so successful in propagandizing and fear-mongering the populace in many western nations, including the United States, that the virus has made far too many...

    President Barack Obama was just finishing up 18 holes at the Vineyard Golf Club around noon Saturday when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi arrived by private jet to attend Obama’s big 60th birthday party set to kick off at 7 p.m., sources told The Post. The ex-president, who hit the links with pals Don Cheadle and NBA coach Steve Kerr, flew in Friday for the supposedly scaled-down party, while Pelosi got the VIP treatment at Martha’s Vineyard Airport when she arrived. Sources told The Post that the Secret Service made special arrangements for the private plane she came in to taxi...

    Hoover Institution senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson discusses op-ed that calls out the Democratic Party as 'the party of wealth,' suggesting Republicans need to make the argument that they're 'the party of the middle class.' Wokeness comes from the elites who are wealthy and who cannot be effected personally by the policies they promote such as defund the police, or radical energy policies that drive up fuel prices.The elites have enough money that they can buy their own protection without relying on police.Similarly they are wealthy enough that fuel prices and inflation do not effect their life style These woke...

    The oligarchy that annihilated or perverted the American Republic’s institutions rules not simply to secure privileged access to wealth. It is equally, if not principally preoccupied with crushing the way of life of whoever are not its members or clients—of ourselves. That is why it rules as a hostile occupying power. Having replaced the distinction between public and private with that between ins and outs, our oligarchy, like all others, exercises power through all manner of connected corporations and individuals—in business, education, the media, etc. Each and every part of this oligarchy oppresses us and stands in the way of...
