Selective outrage and Let's Go Brandon[edit]

As to Conway, Julian Assange lived in relative solitary confinement for 7 years in the Ecuador Embassy, as soon as he was moved to that hell hole that replaced the Tower of London a few centuries ago, he had a stroke. As to selective outrage, are you as selectively outraged over Let's Go Brandon vs. the treatment Trump and Trump supporters received over the past 6 years as most all other liberal communist media personalities are? RobSLet's Go Brandon! 03:05, December 30, 2021 (EST)
Joe Biden and Hunter Biden are both traitors who took graft from China.[1] Instead of "Let's go Brandon", the chant "Impeach Joe Biden" should be used. Conservative (talk) 11:14, December 30, 2021 (EST)
@Rob: No, I'm just fascinated by the schoolkid glee many of you lot exhibit in having a code for something normal people would say out loud. Linguistically, it's performing the same function, but somehow you manage to kid yourselves that it's not really swearing. It's like a lass raised on abstinence-only telling herself she's still a virgin as long as her beau only takes her up the arse. ConwayIII (talk) 22:10, December 30, 2021 (EST)
I think you miss the point of it, completely. Biden critics did not invent it - NBC Sports and mainstream media did. And the real joke is MSM making it acceptable for small children to say what conservatives ordinarily would never say in front of their children.
It is not as if we didn't know NBC were bald face liars. The joke is on MSM and idiots who believe anything they say. Biden is just collateral damage. Ask me what I really think. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 01:34, December 31, 2021 (EST)
Do you think it is possible to have a rational debate or discussion, in an election year, with these people? And who, other than MSM, public schools, and Hollywood celebrities, has hypnotized and brainwashed these people with such hate and lack of respect for other people? RobSLet's Go Brandon! 02:12, December 31, 2021 (EST)
Look at yourself, man. You've been tittering like a schoolgirl since the story broke and now it's all apparently the MSM's fault. Take some responsibility for your actions: it amuses you and you like saying it with its full intended meaning. Same for everyone else in the extended right-wing looniverse. Again, though, less spiritually constipated types would just use the plain Anglo-Saxon. ConwayIII (talk) 13:08, December 31, 2021 (EST)
I'm indebted to NBC for allowing me to use their slogan in my signature template. My last signature, "Free Kyle!" didn't have to be changed for more than year as the arc of history bent toward justice. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 16:18, December 31, 2021 (EST)

AOC trip[edit]

AOC trip to Florida prove she is hypocrite by her standards of Covid restriction then to for slamming Senator Ted Cruz for his trip in February. instead to respond her critique, she make dirty claims that Republicans motivated by 'sexual frustrations' --Alex Kosh (talk) 19:27, December 31, 2021 (EST) AOC claims Republicans motivated by 'sexual frustrations' in Twitter rant amid Florida trip controversy

Why was Cruz supposed to stay in Texas, anyway? Was he going to climb up the towers and restore power? As for AOC, the "sexual frustration" line sounds like projection to me. A vacay with her boyfriend in Florida could be just the thing to calm her down. After all, DeSantis certainly knows how to run a state. PeterKa (talk) 01:02, January 1, 2022 (EST)
AOC needs the gospel. All flesh is grass. It flowers today and is cast into the oven tomorrow. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 00:41, January 4, 2022 (EST)

The problem AOC prove she hasnt any standards. she is one who demand mask and vaccine mandatory but she was without mask. also she should apologize to Senator Cruz, because now she did same thing --Alex Kosh (talk) 18:38, January 1, 2022 (EST)

DeSantis has the right spin: "DeSantis: ‘Not Surprised’ Democrats Flee to Florida to ‘Enjoy Life’ without ‘Draconian’ Covid Policies." PeterKa (talk) 23:41, January 3, 2022 (EST)
After the uproar over Sandy Cortez, you'd think other Dems wouldn't be caught dead in Florida: "EXCLUSIVE: 'Masks everywhere. Vacation cancelled.' But not for Eric Swalwell! Democratic congressman follows in AOC's footsteps and goes maskless at posh Miami hotel in mandate-free Florida, days after blaming GOP for 'prolonging' the pandemic."

Why was I blocked?[edit]

Yesterday, I was temporarily blocked from editing by the bot for "suspected vandalism". I've never vandalized anything on CP; I've only ever used this website like a normal user would. Was it an accident? Does this happen often? Vince Did 7-14 Christ Is King! 11:04, January 5, 2022 (EST)

You removed 26,000 bytes from the Caitlan Jenner article and Minuteman was too quick on the trigger. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 11:13, January 5, 2022 (EST)
Ohh, okay. Vince Did 7-14 Christ Is King! 14:13, January 5, 2022 (EST)
Minuteman is a bot. Conservative (talk) 20:21, January 5, 2022 (EST)
Tips to avoid autoblock next time: either (A) don't copy paste whole articles from WP & other websites, and/or (B) if given permission to retain some of it contingent upon clean up and editing, don't remove wholesale blocks; remove it gradually in sections. RobSLet's Go Brandon!`
I am just guessing, but I speculate that the more edits you do, the more slack the bot gives you. Usually vandals are guerilla attacks of short duration. Conservative (talk) 22:36, January 5, 2022 (EST)

Jimmy Carter weighs in on January 6[edit]

After he was defeated by Ronald Reagan in 1980, Jimmy Carter spent years doing his best to discredit the election. He promoted the theory that Reagan won only by conspiring with the ayatollahs to engineer an "October surprise." So he's a fine one to be talking about respecting the outcome of elections. Here he is in today's NYT: "Jimmy Carter: I fear for our democracy." PeterKa (talk) 21:54, January 5, 2022 (EST)

Jimmy Carter, what a prize. He reminds me of the character Titural in Wagner's Parsifal, who is so old and decrepit they have him boxed up in the grave already before he's dead, who's crying out of the grave while his kingly successor falls flat on his face. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 22:44, January 5, 2022 (EST)

Church of Mary's Rock[edit]

Why do you suppose PeterKa removed the capital letter of this church from "Church of Mary's Rock" to "church of Mary's Rock" in the Dome of the Rock article? Was it to test Andy? A "Protestant" User:Yeschiya had already on January 1 started a wiki page called "2022" that called it the 2022nd year of the "Common Era", the erasure that name seemed to represent on Wikipedia being what actually spurred Andy to originate Conservapedia. Was it a taboo formation where he can't stand to see it juxtaposed with buildings in Jerusalem in any other presentation? Was it some sort of revenge defilement? I recently read, though don't have the source handy, an ossuary vessel thought to contain the bones of Jesus' brother James had its inscription erased while in the custody of the city of Jerusalem. It's almost a dehumanization to deny a place name a capital letter, is it not?

By the way, like the blocked user above, I have lost some access, namely to Recent Changes. While inconvenient, it discharges me of certain moral obligations with which I'd just as soon not be encumbered. AbelBanquo (talk) 09:25, January 6, 2022 (EST)

As far as the Church of Mary's Rock goes, it was just a mistake. I fixed it. PeterKa (talk) 22:39, January 6, 2022 (EST)
I wonder though, was it worth it to me? For this and whatever else, I'm a Conservapedia heretic now. AbelBanquo (talk) 01:09, January 7, 2022 (EST)
You should write this kind of thing on the article's talk page, or change it yourself. PeterKa (talk) 01:52, January 7, 2022 (EST)
I've grown very accustomed over the years to people who persistently divert the subject so nothing of importance ever gets talked about. I'd like to think this was my (very) small contribution to combat that. But recall that in the land of the anti-vaxxers, the one-syringed man is king. AbelBanquo (talk) 09:06, January 7, 2022 (EST)

Notice the assymetries of argumentative burden he feels entitled to maintain. I accuse him of making a mean remark, and the burden is on me to give the reason. He denies it and gives no reasons why it seems otherwise. I make a neutral remark, then he actually does make a mean remark and refuses again to give any explanation of either remark.

Instead he leaves "change it yourself" hanging as a non-denial denial that he had any mean intentions. It affirms he had mean intentions, but it doesn't leave any of his fingerprints on the implied disdainfulness of how he characterizes the way the church should be treated, as it doesn't take the form of propositional speech, so it also denies.

Peter fancies himself a spokesman for his interests on the level of Ronald Ziegler, Nixon's Press Secretary during a White House press conference. What is he trying to protect? Has anyone been hostile to him?

There's something else to note here. Stalin had quotas of state enemies nearly every organization had to supply, or their leaders indicated themselves as disloyal.

Everyone knows the story told by Solzhenitsyn of a government group applauding a speech affirming some ideal or policy, where they applauded ten minutes because no one wanted to be the first to stop applauding. Sure enough the first person who stopped applauding and allowed the meeting to continue for everyone was informed upon, arrested and sent to the Gulag.

The larger point is if any group is failing to engage in a moral principle, it's easy to scapegoat the person who points it out. Because not only did he embarrass everyone, but he took part in it as well and can thus be stigmatized as a hypocrite.

I would challenge Peter to rise above a "Stalin" level of group moral improvement.

He seems to take the pessimistic view that moral clarity is bound to portray him as a failure, and that all he can do is take bitter satisfaction that at least he anticipated the blow instead of taking stock to see whether it actually occurred, or it didn't.

Of course, if you dislike the person who provided the moral clarity, it's much easier to allow that clear picture to escape you and proceed to impute shameful motives on the part of the person who you think portrayed you as a failure, like the scapegoat who first pointed out some lack of moral engagement in the group. AbelBanquo (talk) 17:47, January 7, 2022 (EST)

Crisis in Kazakhstan[edit]

As the US marks the anniversary of the Capitol riot, a potentially serious crisis is emerging in Central Asia. Kazakhstan is being rocked by widespread anti-government protests and riots, and the government appears to be on the verge of being overthrown. Russia has sent troops into Kazakhstan to restore order.[2]--Geopolitician (talk) 14:18, January 6, 2022 (EST)

Looks like the people are pissed off about inflation, and the CIA is trying to exploit the situation. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 14:36, January 6, 2022 (EST)
Most likely. After all, Kazakhstan is both a Russian ally AND within the "Eurasian Balkans." It must be destablized, so sayeth the Establishment!--Geopolitician (talk) 15:03, January 6, 2022 (EST)
Interesting take by our friends in India. Russia shows US and China who is boss in Central Asia. China has been pushing its neo-colonial Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in the region, viewed by Moscow as its own sphere of exclusive influence. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 23:10, January 6, 2022 (EST)
Update: It looks like the unrest is actually the result of an ongoing power struggle between the former President (Nursultan Nazarbayev, who was until a few days ago the Chairman of the Security Council) and the incumbent President (Kassym-Jomart Tokayev). According to allies of Tokayev, the protests were peaceful until allies of Nazarbayev paid agitators to cause trouble. If this is true, then it significantly reduces the likelihood of CIA involvement, as Nazarbayev historically has been no friend of the Washington establishment. [3]--Geopolitician (talk) 13:26, January 10, 2022 (EST)
A Nazarbayev/Tokayev conflict could itself be CIA disinformation (as naive and stupid as the CIA track record is). The general consensus of observers is that there was some outside interference, which points to Russia. And the motive is to stem the tide of Belt and Road initiatives in Kazakhstan (I know, Geo, you think Russia and China are allies). Belt and Road certainly flourishes where political corruption is rampant. So it appears Russia is trying to flush out corrupt leaders beholden to China, replace them, and reclaim Kazakhstan as within the Russian sphere of influence. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 14:53, January 10, 2022 (EST)
China and Russia are only allies because the neocons made it so. China and Russia still harbor deeply-rooted distrust towards each other. The status of Central Asia is one of the sources of that distrust, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that the CCP, the FSB, or both, are somehow involved as well as the CIA.--Geopolitician (talk) 15:16, January 10, 2022 (EST)
I wouldn't be too sure about that. Let's not forget that even as late as the Vietnam War, the Soviets and Chinese STILL allied with each other just to get rid of us from Vietnam a nd ensure Southeast Asia fell to the Communists. I remember hearing about some Vietnam Veterans who distinctly remembered several NVA members who spoke Chinese being among their ranks, and not Vietnamese, and even wore Chinese gear even, and that was DESPITE the USSR being the primary backer of the Vietcong and aside from that, the Sino-Soviet Split having already occurred. Neocons definitely didn't have any role there (Vietnam was a Democrat war at the time.). And they certainly didn't have a role in Putin comparing an anti-Christian psychopath like Lenin to Christian saints, or for that matter comparing the Communist Manifesto to the Bible, or for that matter Lenin's tomb and/or that Karl Marx statue in the main public square of Moscow still being up (and the former was DESPITE it being ruled by a majority that he really needed to be buried as a result of his decaying like any other man). That was ALL on Russia and Putin in particular. And as far as distrust between China and Russia, Communist countries distrusting each other is literally a feature of Communism, dating back at least to Trotsky and Stalin's infighting within the USSR, if not to Lenin's extermination of his fellow Communists known as the Kadets and the Kronstadt sailors, maybe even as far back as General Louis Grignon ordering his troops to slaughter even members of his own forces and allies during the Vendee Massacres just to satiate bloodlust. Heck, they don't even trust their own citizens, hence their appalling human rights records. Pokeria1 (talk) 05:43, January 11, 2022 (EST)
Left to right: Kenes Rakishev, Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Kazak Prime Minister Karim Massimov.
  • graduated from the Beijing Language and Culture University, the Law School of Wuhan University in Wuhan; in 1991 became Kazak trade rep to China
RobSLet's Go Brandon! 13:20, January 11, 2022 (EST)
So it looks pretty obvious what's happening. Massimov is taking money from the CCP for the Belt and Road, getting the country in debt to the CCP, and paying Biden some of the money for access and influence. Nazarbayev is too old and fading from the scene, and Putin said enoughs enough. Kazakhstan is not going to be indebted to the CCP.
Now, ordinarily people would say this is an aggressive action. However most idiots forget already that the CCP has attacked the world with coronavirus. Time to put China back in its box. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 13:47, January 11, 2022 (EST)
Hunter Biden was the guy who brokered the deals for CCP. So when Massimov is put on trial, there's a chance he could get Epsteined before it all comes out in court. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 18:39, January 11, 2022 (EST)
Apparently, here's a broad outline of what happened: The Biden family/CCP relationship was founded in late 2012 (shortly after the 2012 elections) when Hunter Biden's Rosemont Seneca won a deal to procure $1.5 Billion in assets for the CCP's Belt and Road Initiative.[1]. The Biden family later was assured 10% of the profits. One deal shortly after the merger of Bohai Harvest RST was to buy Kazak oil and gas assets for the CCP. Hunter aranged the purchases with then Kazak prime minister Karim Massimov and his cronies. Massimov gave up the prime ministership in 2017 and became intelligence/security chief (a step up).
In the recent uprising, after longtime boss Nazarbayev retired (Nazarbayev was on the Soviet Politburo in the 1980s when Putin was a low-level KGB officer working the streets of Vienna), Massimov arranged for security forces to abandon buildings where rioters could obtain weapons and eventually took over the Almaty airport. Massimov and others were arrested on high treason charges. At trial, the corrupt transactions brokered by Hunter Biden between Burisma Kazakhstan and the CCP Belt and Road Initiative could come out. Also, Rosemont Seneca investing Massimov and others profits in the United States could also come out. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 16:07, January 12, 2022 (EST)
One final note: Yes, the photo posted above is quite possibly a fake. However, que sera sera. Putin and the boys generally are not so dumb. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 16:29, January 12, 2022 (EST)

Ted Cruz destroys his career[edit]

Lyin' Ted Cruz is desperately trying to pick up the pieces of his reputation after calling Jan 6 a "violent terrorist attack". He attempted to walk back this lie with an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight, but instead was hilariously torn apart by Tucker, who obliterated his political future while simultaneously remaining polite. Vince Did 7-14 Christ Is King! 10:36, January 10, 2022 (EST)

I'm not a Cruz fan either. He ran for President despite being ineligible for the position, and several high-profile figures from his camp went on to join the Trump administration, only to sabotage it from within (I'm looking at you, Steve Bannon, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, and Mark Meadows!). He also is a hardcore neocon, so much that he openly stated that he was willing to confirm Biden's nominees as long as Biden continued warmongering against Russia.
That being said, calling 1/6 terrorism may not be a false statement. It all depends on who did it and why. If it was a false flag operation, then it absolutely was terrorism, because it was intended to create an atmosphere of fear which would be used to justify further government tyranny. But if it wasn't a false flag operation, then we first have to identify the masterminds and their goals. Next, we have to use those facts to determine if the event itself (not to be confused with the actions of individuals who may have acted in terroristic ways on their own accord) won't be easy; even the slightest difference in motivation could affect that conclusion.--Geopolitician (talk) 12:59, January 10, 2022 (EST)
And another thing. Regardless of all the above, it's literally impossible to charge the participants with terrorism, because "domestic terrorism" is not and never has been a federal crime. See here for more info.--Geopolitician (talk) 12:59, January 10, 2022 (EST)
And yet another thing. I don't buy Cruz's argument that attacking cops is terrorism per se. Sure, such crimes can overlap. But I have the impression that Cruz was trying to frame all people who attack cops for any reason are terrorists. Which would make his view on what is terrorism and what isn't pretty warped regardless of whether or not you agree with him on 1/6 itself.--Geopolitician (talk) 12:59, January 10, 2022 (EST)
To further clarify, both the left and the right need to stop calling people who they don't like terrorists, unless they clearly had terroristic intent. That means the left needs to stop labelling all 1/6 participants as terrorists; and that means the right needs to stop labelling everyone who participated in BLM-related violent demonstrations/riots as terrorists. If you're just standing by, you're not a terrorist. And even if you commit a violent act, it's not terrorism per se. It's all about intent, and the individual. Do you, intend to terrorize (hence the word "terrorism") or not?--Geopolitician (talk) 13:18, January 10, 2022 (EST)
Personally, I think you guys are reading a lot into this that isn't there. Cruz was speaking to congressional colleagues about internal debates to beef up the Capitol Police. Nowhere did he call Trump supporters terrorists. In fact, he got on the record the FBI false flag terrorist activity. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 14:42, January 10, 2022 (EST)
well duh. Can you guys say somebody jumped the gun in trashing Cruz? RobSLet's Go Brandon! 15:18, January 13, 2022 (EST)

No wonder they were called Philistines[edit]

Christianity Today has a list of "Biblical Archaeology’s Top 10 Discoveries of 2021":

  • The Philistines ate.......bananas.
  • Archaeologists have uncovered an entertainment complex built by Herod in Ashkelon. It was the Vegas of the Holy Land with pagan statues and an odeon. Why did Jesus go to Jerusalem when he could have gone here?
  • One of the largest ancient Egyptians cities ever found was uncovered near Luxor. It was abandoned suddenly. Monotheistic Phaoroh Akhenaten gets the blame. He needed workers for other projects, such as Tell el-Amarna. PeterKa (talk) 12:47, January 10, 2022 (EST)

Project Veritas: Military Documents About Gain of Function Contradict Fauci Testimony Under Oath[edit]

This is HUGE.--Geopolitician (talk) 13:02, January 11, 2022 (EST)

The most damning of those military documents is this DARPA memo written by Major Joseph Murphy, USMC, dated August 13, 2021. The very first paragraph of the memo states that (1) COVID-19 was created in the Wuhan lab; (2) its creation was overseen not by the CCP military, but by EcoHealth Alliance (to which Dr. Fauci is directly connected); and (3) the development of the virus was supposed to be the first phase of the project, and the development of a vaccine was supposed to be the second phase. These facts make it clear that the virus was originally an American project, not a Chinese one. However, what still remains unclear is (1) whether the release of the virus was part of the plan all along or was the act of a rogue lab employee; and (2) who the lab employee responsible for the virus' release was acting on behalf of.--Geopolitician (talk) 13:14, January 11, 2022 (EST)
While Project Veritas itself does not attempt to answer those unresolved questions, Sundance at Conservative Treehouse does (see here), and concludes that the release of the virus was most likely the result of a conspiracy between rogue factions of the US government, who seem to have wanted three things to come out of the pandemic: (1) Trump's ouster; (2) a Cold War with China; and (3) an excuse for more funding of the military-industrial complex. Sundance particularly singles out Mike Pompeo as being one of the top conspirators, and also singles out John Ratcliffe as being instrumental in the subsequent cover-up.--Geopolitician (talk) 13:21, January 11, 2022 (EST)
We're going to need a Trusted News Initiative article right away.RobSLet's Go Brandon! 14:45, January 11, 2022 (EST)
Ok, let's clarify some facts:
  • The Pentagon IG report puts the official seal of approval on facts and a narrative that has been known and is available in open source for some time;
  • The IG report was leaked by Senate Republicans in advance of today's hearing with Dr. Fauci; Project Veritas was the conduit for the leak and given enough time to investigate and contact Major Murphy;
  • The report confirms that Fauci defied the Obama administration's 2014 ban on gain of function research and farmed it out to the WIV through Daszak; the ban was lifted four days after the Oval Office meeting attended by Obama, Biden, Susan Rice, John Brennan, Jim Comey and Sally Yates discussing how to coverup Obama's illegal domestic spying, and 3 days before Comey and Yates signed off on the FISA renewal to wiretap Trump after he took office. It was that same day Fauci & Ron Klain vowed Trump would suffer a pandemic.
  • So something should be said about Fauci defying Obama's ban: a 2014 scientific paper by Shi Zhengli announced a breakthrough in gain of function. The reaction in much of the scientific community was horrifying, so Obama didn't have much choice but to ban it. The question of complicity between Fauci and Obama is something we'll likely never know, but it is curious how eleven days before Trump takes office, Obama decides to throw caution to the wind and Fauci brags about. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 19:51, January 11, 2022 (EST)
The Murphy memo confirms that COVID was the product an American project. Combine that with the actions and statements you cited above, and with the fact that by fall 2019 the Trump administration foreign policy team was dominated by neocons like Bolton and Pompeo, and one ought to conclude that it’s more likely than not that our own government really was the mastermind of the pandemic, and that the CCP is being scapegoated.--Geopolitician (talk) 20:06, January 11, 2022 (EST)
I wouldn't frame it that way. It was a joint US/CCP project. DARPA is a weapons development project that often produces spinoff consumer technologies. DARPA rejected funding gain of function for either weapons or medical research. Fauci secretly continued it, in his words, "the knowledge to be gained is worth the risks."

I see a bad moon rising for Democrats. I see trouble on the way.[edit]

The betting odds that former President Donald Trump will win the 2024 election have surged in the past year, pushing him into the lead over President Joe Biden — and possible GOP primary challengers. The political betting “intelligence” site U.S. Bookies has Trump as a 3-1 favorite in 2024, up from the 10-1 odds after he left the White House nearly a year ago. [4]

The entire purpose of the J6 panel, in collusion with the DOJ and MSM, is bring the full weight of the US govt against Trump in 2024 and the GOP in the 2022 Midterms. Those allegations must be addressed. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 03:45, January 12, 2022 (EST)
That the House will go Republican in 2022 is a no brainer. But that won't help unless the Senate goes Republican as well. Pollster Douglas Schoen ran the numbers in yesterday's Wall Street Journal: "If Democrats want a fighting chance at winning the presidency in 2024, Mrs. Clinton is likely their best option." Is there anyone who polls worse? But they have no other options. It's either Hillary or Sandy Cortez. PeterKa (talk) 07:40, January 12, 2022 (EST)

What leads to a coup?[edit]

All the talk of a possible coup following the next election has led me to think of Chile. This country was one of Latin America's most stable democracies until the Marxist policies of President Salvador Allende provoked a coup in 1973. Allende was never a popular leader. He had been elected with only 35 percent of the vote in a three-way race. He boosted wages even as the price of copper, Chile's main export, dropped. Inflation zoomed from 33 percent in 1970 to 433 percent in 1973.

Chile's response was strongly gendered. Working-class men saw their wages increase while the women did the shopping and focused on price increases. They banged their pots at a "March of the Empty Pots" and worried that their children would be sent to Cuba for indoctrination.

In the March 1973 midterms, the conservative parties campaigned to impeach Allende. Although they received 57 percent of the vote, they fell short of the level required to remove a president from office. In August, wives of Chilean officers staged a protest in front of the home of Commander-in-Chief Carlos Prats and demanded that he restore order. Prats resigned and was replaced with Augusto Pinochet, who staged a coup against Allende two weeks later. At the time, Chileans figured Pinochet would allow the freshly elected parliament to make policy and the coup was quite popular. PeterKa (talk) 11:00, January 12, 2022 (EST)

While inflation can cause otherwise normal people to think murderous thoughts, the unique thing about the U.S. Democrat party historically is regarding inflation as some sort of accomplishment to be proud of. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 12:33, January 12, 2022 (EST)

Really Rob? We're supposed to believe this is a reference to anyone but me for timidly writing brief bits of info that exculpated or attenuated the Nazi role from certain historical acts, for which Andy then reneged on my having a (functional) sockpuppet account because he wrongly interpreted as "political" or "religious" my daring to notice suspiciously retaliatory-looking actions here?

Then why was I seconded by Jewish conservative David Cole of Taki's Magazine on January 11, specifically echoing the idea of Communist involvement in German politics?

The Curious Case of the Barking Nazi
“You need to view things with clarity not just because you want to know the facts, but because you can use what you learn.”
So you invite a Covid “mRNA scientist” on your show and the segment that goes viral involves not science but history.
How the hell does that happen?
Last week, when Joe Rogan hosted social media exile Dr. Robert Malone, the phrase that rightists came away repeating like Pollys wanting crackers was “mass formation psychosis” (MFP).
The term went so viral the AP fact-checked it (yes, the AP fact-checks theories now. Please do CRT next).
Malone invoked MFP to explain public manipulability during the pandemic. MFP, he said, “comes from European intellectual inquiry into what the heck happened in Germany in the ’20s and ’30s” when “a very intelligent, highly educated population went barking mad” because people had “free-floating anxiety and a sense that things don’t make sense” and “their attention was focused by a leader on one small point, just like hypnosis.” Thus “they literally became hypnotized and could be led anywhere,” so they attacked “the other [Jews]” because Hitler told them to.
Hitler laser-focused a hypnotized, anxiety-ridden people on the Jews, and a highly educated population went “barking mad.”
Except that’s just not how it went down. Malone was repeating a bad Facebook meme (“Ever wondered how the Germans blindly followed a madman and killed six million Jews? Now you know! Please like & share”).
By 1930, Germans had plenty of reasons to be “anxious.” Economic collapse (exacerbated by what was seen as oppressive post-WWI penalties), political corruption, rampant unemployment and poverty, Soviet expansion, and a fear of fifth columnists (inconvenient fact: Communists from within—led by Jews—had formed a short-lived dictatorship in Bavaria 1918–1919). The Nazi platform spoke to those concerns: national self-determination, old-age insurance, equal rights and guaranteed education regardless of income, the abrogation of Versailles, the end of “big-box stores” in favor of local merchants, a prohibition on media ownership by foreigners, an end to political cronyism, and the abolition of four widely despised things—unearned income, war profiteering, child labor, and land speculation.
Parts of the Nazi platform were indeed anti-Jewish. Jews would be denied citizenship, and any foreigners who entered Germany after 1914 would be expelled. But taking that along with the other policies outlined above, a German didn’t have to be “barking mad” to vote for the party. It doesn’t mean the Nazis were good, or that they were sincere about the things they claimed to advocate (especially that “political cronyism” thing). It just means it wasn’t a “barking mad” platform.
And even still, the Nazis won in 1932 with pluralities, not majorities. So it was never a matter of “all Germans” lining up like hypnotized automatons.
On top of that, as historian Ian Kershaw has noted, election-era Hitler significantly downplayed the anti-Jewish angle. By 1930, he “seldom spoke explicitly of Jews.” That point is echoed by Hebrew University’s Oded Heilbronner in his essay “Where Did Nazi Anti-Semitism Disappear To?” (Yad Vashem Studies, volume XXI).
As I’ve previously noted, as per Professor William Rubinstein’s The Myth of Rescue, over 16,000 Jews who fled Germany in 1933 returned the next year.
Hitler would further relax the anti-Jewish shtick for the 1936 Olympics.
In Political Violence Under the Swastika: 581 Early Nazis, Professor Peter Merkl studied the history of every foundational Nazi. He found that 33.3% of them showed no interest in anti-Semitism, 14.3% expressed “mild verbal clichés” regarding Jews, 19.1% displayed “moderate” disdain for Jewish cultural influence in Germany, while only 12.9% advocated “violent countermeasures” against Jews.
So no, Hitler didn’t bark his way to power with a bunch of mad barkers who hypnotized the masses with barking, turning them into barking mad barkers who barked at Jews. It was a gradual process that began with a platform that contained at least a few things every damned one of you would advocate, remained fairly stable until Kristallnacht in November 1938 (when Jews started thinking, “This shit’s gettin’ out of hand”), but stayed at “Jim Crow Mississippi”-level bad until 1941 when Hitler launched a war of extermination in the East in which “the rules” were declared null and void. And even then, the Nazis farmed out a lot of the Jew-killing to barkier people like Ukrainians and Estonians. The mass murder of Jews did not take place in Germany proper (indeed, in his infamous Posen speech, Himmler slammed the German people for not being barking mad enough to get behind Jew-extermination).
So what’s my point, beyond trying to appeal to the dog demographic by saying “bark” a hundred times (to all my new canine readers, Who’s a good boy? Who’s a good boy? You are! You are!)? When you rely on stale clichés like “Hitler hyp-mo-tized the Germans who went mad and killed the Jews,” you miss out on understanding the actual mechanics of how these things happen. You rob yourself of the ability to comprehend.
Lucidity is all the right has. The right doesn’t have the Ivy League, the teachers’ unions, Big Tech, the newspapers, TV networks, movie studios, A-list actors and musicians, and all the other vessels through which leftists promulgate their nonsensical ideas about race, crime, gender, economics, etc. With the exception of the dolts on Fox, the right doesn’t control the arms of propaganda, so go the opposite route, and appeal to working-class voters by not propagandizing them but rather acknowledging reality.
Lucidity: seeing things clearly for what they are. That’s all you got, folks. You lose that, you’re finished. The right’s greatest foe isn’t the left but the forces within—Lin Wood, Sidney Powell, Q, and Trump himself—that try to push you away from lucidity.
Why do you think I hector you guys about the pervasive, impossible-to-kill rightist myth that Beverly Hills is a “leftist city” full of “left-wing celebrities”? No matter how many times I try to cure you of that idiocy, I fail (as I point out again and again, Beverly Hills is generally red. The main precincts went for Trump in 2016 and 2020, and you’re as likely to find “celebrities” in Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Los Feliz, and the Hollywood Hills as in BH; my neighbors are doctors, orthodontists, and attorneys).
The night before Christmas Eve, rumors spread on Twitter that BLM was doing “smash and grab” looting throughout Beverly Hills. Claremont Institute supertard Jeremy Carl tweeted “Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch” (dozens of rightists echoed his comment in the thread). I sent Carl a purposely rude email because I’m through being kind to dumbasses, and, to my surprise, he replied that he’s a reader of mine. He’s read my work, but he dismisses Beverly Hills red voters because they’re just Jews mindlessly supporting Trump’s “Israel policies.” The “vulgar” BH locals are not “conservative”; they’re “culturally corrosive” degenerates who corrupt America via “Hollywood.”
Hey, I found a mad barker! Who’s a good boy? Me!
In fact, what happened on Christmas Eve-Eve was that a small group of BLM loons conducted a hugely annoying but nevertheless legal protest on Rodeo Drive. The BHPD was there in force and kept everything orderly, because the protesters knew that in Beverly Hills blacks will get arrested if they break the law.
There were two ways to look at what happened that night: lucidly (“Here’s a good example of how even in a blue county a generally red oasis with a strong PD can maintain law and order while still protecting constitutional rights”), or retardedly (“BLM smashed up Beverly Hills and hooray ’cuz them left-wing deeegenerate Jew Hollyweird akter pedos got it comin’!”).
I can best define what I mean by “lucid” by pointing to Jeremy Carl as the opposite (like, if someone asks, “What is light?” put them in a dark room and say, “Not this”). Along with misrepresenting what happened in BH on the 23rd and misrepresenting the occupations and political leanings of the residents, Carl also refuses to differentiate between Jewish communities—the conservative-leaning Persians and Orthodox (who are not “vulgar Hollywood”) vs. your standard secular Ashkenazi Woody Allens (there’s yer vulgar Hollywood). He claims that the pro-Trumpism of the large BH precincts is due to “Israel,” while ignoring the other conservative victories in those precincts that had nothing to do with Israel (the Newsom recall, anti–affirmative action, anti–”progressive prosecution”).
Worse still, Carl, in his email to me, refused to differentiate between BH precincts, claiming that because some of them went Dem, all of BH is therefore leftist, an asinine notion because like any sizable city BH has different regions, and it pays to understand those differences and how they play out politically.
Hell, if you really wanna get in the weeds, you can examine how slope-a-dope Ted Lieu’s district (which includes BH) was Frankensteined to tie BH to leftist Malibu (thirty miles away) while cutting it off from the Orthodox Pico-Robertson neighborhoods right across the street.
And by studying those specifics, you’d actually learn something about gerrymandering that maybe can come in handy (heaven forbid).
That’s why relying on comfortable clichés and memes, be it “Nazi barkers” or “Beverly Hills is leftist Hollywood,” is dangerously harmful. It blinds you to specifics. Specific events, specific causes, specific demographics, specific regions. You need to view things with clarity not just because you want to know the facts, but because you can use what you learn. The smart leftists, like Soros, brag about doing this. Soros surrogates boast about how, simultaneously, they’d sell his poisonous no-prosecution/decarceration programs by going into black neighborhoods and saying, “We’ze freein’ yo people,” and going into redder white neighborhoods saying, “We’re saving your tax money.”
Leftists may speak in simplistic clichés publicly, but the clever ones—the ones who have been kicking your ass at the ballot box the past few years—privately learn specifics and make use of that knowledge to their advantage.
Rightists have every reason to embrace lucidity, yet they seem bizarrely hesitant. Last week my friend Ann Coulter went on a wonderful Twitter tear (here and here) about idiot GOPs who don’t grasp the distinction between “Hispanic” communities (i.e., Cubans vs. Guatemalans).
Exactly. You learn the specifics if you want to win. You ignore the specifics if you’re just figuratively jacking off. Like if you have zero concern for your supposed “cause,” and zero respect for your readers.
And speaking of Jeremy Carl, one last thing. In a March 2019 AmGreatness piece, Carl wrote about Hollywood’s “overwhelming dominance by whites.”
Yeah, “whites.” Lotsa Lutheran Nebraska farmers running those movie studios.
When emailing his intellectual better, Carl had no problem being specific (invoking Jews and Israel to wave away deep-red BH precincts). But he sees his readers as dullwit nosepickers, so to them he avoids demographic specifics, because he’s just trying to get likes & shares, like every writer and politico on the right who relies on generalizations and oft-repeated-but-never-questioned memes.
Don’t follow those folks; they won’t lead anywhere good.
Now, I started this piece talking about Dr. Malone. And next week I’ll continue with an examination of how his “barking” boilerplate didn’t just get our current predicament wrong, but backwards.

Maybe I should use a crassly-stereotyped black dialect or vulgarity like Cole does to assure myself of having enough personal authenticity in the form of resentment to speak on these matters!

You're forgetting that many Eastern European nations had little custom "national socialisms" of their own private nationalisms, and I didn't even bother to point out in the articles I edited that Poland national socialism foolishly avoided an alliance with Germany to defend against Bolshevism because of popular politics in that country.

So once again, I undo some revisionism, like I briefly did when I personally commented here on homosexual marriage not being a foregone conclusion, interfering then with Andy's chess game where he's supportive of non-conservative Greenwald Jim Hoft, and because it somehow interferes again, Conservapedia turns into get-Vargas-pedia.

So together with Greenwald Jim Hoft everybody's buddy-buddy again, and I get left holding the bag of ugly suspicions. It's a good thing I don't need to depend on Jewish conservative dissidents like David Cole to carry out ad hoc rescues of my reputation, simply by happening to possess a peculiar combination of personal characteristics while retelling what are almost commonplaces, because there aren't that many to go around!

Q. How do you prevent me from pompously comparing myself to dissidents like David Cole, banned from Amazon, and who already pompously italicizes every other word, or Dr. Robert Malone?

A. By disallowing all-too-similar persecutions from becoming attached to your website! AbelBanquo (talk) 20:43, January 14, 2022 (EST)

Nice speech in defense of Hitler and Nazis there. What made the German people go barking mad were the Progressive elements in the Nazi platform, eugenics being only one such element, among others. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 22:26, January 14, 2022 (EST)
Robert Barnes recently said: [5]
"Frankly this started in Britain in the U.S., the ideas for eugenics and social Darwinism were British and American ideas. And you know the Nazis always cited British and American authorities. Particularly like, I'm waiting for somebody in one of these vaccine mandate cases that gets up to Scotus to just go after them on this issue, to say the last time you got high and mighty on when you thought public health authorities should be completely deferred to was when you said three generations of imbeciles was enough and ordered forced sterilizations that became the law of the land for 50 years, that led to forced sterilizations of poor women all across the country. So maybe you should be a little bit more careful before you get up on your high horse about what you think medicine is. Before you take off that black robe and put on that white lab coat and pretend that your professional class compadres are the ones who should dictate and direct public health policy in America because you have a long history of being atrocious at it, abominable at it. The ideas for eugenics came from America. The Nazis copied American laws and American policies and American principles. And their number one source of authority was the Supreme Court of the United States."

Fauci lied about lab leak to avoid upsetting China[edit]

A new batch of Fauci email has been released under the Freedom of Information Act. It turns out that Fauci and other Natonal Institutes of Health scientists thought from the beginning that covid most likely originated as a lab leak. They engaged in a cover up, either to please China or to get back at Trump. See "Scientists believed Covid leaked from Wuhan lab - but feared debate could hurt ‘international harmony'." Does the NIH have its own foreign policy now?

Why would they care about China's feelings? China is always angry. One of the released emails suggests another possibility. It says that the NIH should not, “mention a lab origin as that will just add fuel to the conspiracists." In other words, they wanted to get back at Trump and Republicans.

NIH didn't suspect genetic engineering, but rather “selection during passage.” What's that? "Passage refers to the number of times a cell/viral culture has been harvested and then allowed to replicate in another identical or different environment."

The next Republican president needs to do a thorough purge of NIH and CDC traitors and replace them with scientists who support the Great Barrington declaration, a group Fauci was plotting to discredit, according to these emails. PeterKa (talk) 23:17, January 12, 2022 (EST)

The left/liberals very often engage in absurd behavior. Hundreds of thousands of Americans might have been lost due to Fauci and friends funding gain of function research in China. Fauci should have been fired long ago. I think Trump was afraid of firing Fauci/Collins due to the political backlash. Fauci has been a mixed bag in terms of his advice to the general public. He needs to be replaced with someone more trustworthy. The whole notion of paying a high profile health official $400,000+ a year whose untrustworthy during a pandemic is totally absured. There needs to be someone more trustworthy in his position.
Biden is mishandling this pandemic. He could be doing a much better job (testing, therapeutics, replacing Fauci, etc.). Conservative (talk) 02:32, January 13, 2022 (EST)
Spiked has a good article on this: "The emails unveiled this week reveal no good scientific reason at all for why these leading virologists changed their minds and became deniers rather than believers in even the remote possibility of a lab leak, all in just a few days in February 2020." Disclosing that the epidemic was likely the result of a lab leak would be, ‘doing great potential harm to science and international harmony,' according to an email by Francis Collins. Who needs a secretary of state when the director of the NIH knows what to do about China? PeterKa (talk) 14:35, January 13, 2022 (EST)
I think "science" just shot itself in the foot bigtime for the next generation. "Science" evidently can't tell the difference between nature and a bioweapon attack. And "science" sure thinks the rest of us are stupid. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 15:10, January 13, 2022 (EST)
We look to the NIH for medical expertise. But these emails expose them as political actors with cynical motives. Why did Fauci change his mind about masks? There was almost certainly no science behind that decision either. PeterKa (talk) 22:00, January 13, 2022 (EST)
I think Fauci forms his scientific considerations by watching The View and Today Show. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 23:39, January 13, 2022 (EST)

Democrats/liberals/leftists/anti-Trumpers/legacy media can't get traction on January 6 issue[edit]

After the Eric Snowden debacle, Trump/Russia collusion debacle, Peter Strzok/James Comey/FBI idiocy and the history of the untrusty behavior of the mainstream, liberal press, the Democrats/liberals/leftists/anti-Trumpers/legacy media can't get traction on January 6 issue due to the lack of trust they now have.

Right-wingers are throwing the Ray Epps possibly being an FBI infiltrator controversy wrench in the works.

In a way, it reminds me of the Allied forces getting bogged down in the hedgerows post D-Day invasion. By that I mean people running into unexpected problems.

In a partisan/polarized America with a public that has a short memory and with the Biden administration having so many problems (Inflation, southern USA border, supply chain, Afghanistan, etc.), it looks like the Democrats will not get traction/momentum on the January 6 issue before the midterms. Conservative (talk) 03:07, January 13, 2022 (EST)

The FBI needs to be more accountable/transparent to the USA public. Frankly, it's ridiculous that they can merely essentially say "We will not say if we had undercover instigators". It is against the law for law enforcement to do entrapment to an individual. Therefore, it follows that they shouldn't be able to do that with a crowd.
The journalist Glen Greenwald says that in tyrannical police states they collect huge amounts of data on a citizen or citizens, but the citizens know little about what the government is doing. There should be more citizen/government oversight on what the FBI/CIA does.
Lastly, given J. Edgar Hoover's atrocious behavior, the J. Edgar Hoover government building needs to be renamed. Conservative (talk) 06:48, January 13, 2022 (EST)
It's also ridiculous that Hillary Clinton, Hunter Biden and Joe Biden are apparently going to get off scot-free despite being criminals. Justice is not impartial (blind) in the USA. Frankly, it is similar to what Putin gets away with in terms of graft. The USA is becoming like a banana republic in terms of corruption when it comes to the Democrats. Conservative (talk) 06:53, January 13, 2022 (EST)
Why are you lumping together today's FBI with J. Edgar Hoover? Didn't you know J. Edgar Hoover saved us from Stalin's spies while the Democrats were launching investigations into Joe McCarthy? AbelBanquo (talk) 11:44, January 15, 2022 (EST)
He abused his power. General Douglas MacArthur did some good things, but when your pride causes you to abuse your power, you have to be corrected so Truman fired him. Nobody should be above the law. Conservative (talk) 11:51, January 15, 2022 (EST)
Lol, I can answer this riposte with a good-natured peevishness. If Hoover hadn't saved the State Department from subversion, before very long there'd've been no United States Government power of any kind to use, much less abuse! I think we should construct a fresh FBI building, name that after Hoover too and staff it with the field officers Mueller fired to consolidate liberal power in Washington D.C.!

Democrat game plan[edit]

Before the 2022 midterms, the Pelosi Panel will declare the J6 false flag attack an "insurrection", and Marc Elias will move to have GOP members of Congress removed and candidates disqualified. [6] RobSLet's Go Brandon! 19:43, December 23, 2021 (EST)

If they can somehow retain control of congress in 2022, the Dems can decertify Republican electors in 2024. They have already decided that a reasonable explanation for any Republican victory is "voter suppression." See "Presidential historian and former Biden speechwriter Jon Meacham claims White House run by Trump in 2024 will create constitutional crisis because 'whatever happens, he will claim he won' - as Dems press voting rights legislation."
Could the Supreme Court head off a coup? Americans seem to like the current court, which has a 6-3 conservative majority. It's reputation has rebounded in the last three months, that is to say, since the Texas abortion case. Gallup has proclaimed Justice John Roberts America's most admired political figure and the only one with bipartisan support.[7] Gallup was once the most admired pollster. Their presidential polling numbers were way off several times in a row, so they no longer attempt to predict elections. PeterKa (talk) 09:58, December 29, 2021 (EST)
The vaccine mandate question will be heard shortly, and should result in a quick decision. That will be a marked slap down on federal power, which Biden already backed off on over the weekend prolly cause he's anticipating a loss.

It's becoming increasingly obvious what the gameplan to derail a second term for Trump is: Sometime prior to primary season 2024, the Biden DOJ will attempt to tie up Trump in the courts with bogus insurrection charges. [8] RobSLet's Go Brandon! 20:00, January 9, 2022 (EST)
Yep, the J6 committee is trying to put together a criminal referral against Trump to Garland's DOJ. [9] The theory being, the 14th Amendment can bar Trump from office (as Marc Elias alleged last month). From Punchbowl:
Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Scott Perry (R-Pa.) have now both told the Jan. 6 committee that they won’t voluntarily sit for interviews....The GOP pair’s refusal presents Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), the select committee chair, and the House Democratic leadership with some tough decisions to make. Do they subpoena the Republicans and attempt to compel their testimony? What if the GOP lawmakers refuse to comply with those subpoenas? Would Democrats then initiate contempt proceedings? Or would the select committee have to go to court first just to issue the subpoena to Jordan or Perry? Thompson has said the panel is still reviewing whether it has the legal authority to do so. It would be an unprecedented step, however, and opens up some very sticky legal questions for this and future Congresses.
Another big question – What happens with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who also talked to Trump on Jan. 6? Is the select committee going to invite him to testify, and if so, when? And what happens when he says no as well? If GOP lawmakers don’t end up testifying – coupled with other witnesses' refusal to cooperate – it could potentially leave gaps in the select committee’s final report on the events of Jan. 6. The panel has interviewed hundreds of witnesses so far and uncovered extensive new evidence, yet these Republicans have critical information on what the former president was doing and saying that day. This information could be especially important if the panel ever puts together a criminal referral to the Justice Department on Trump.
[...] If the panel eventually seeks to have Trump testify, what happens when he refuses? Does Trump get a subpoena too? And a criminal referral if he doesn’t, as Mark Meadows, Trump’s former chief of staff has faced? Jordan’s Sunday night letter also raises a serious concern, one that may make constitutional or legal experts pause. Pay attention to this quote: “Your attempt to pry into the deliberative process informing a Member about legislative matters before the House is an outrageous abuse of the Select Committee’s authority. This unprecedented action served no legitimate legislative purpose and would set a dangerous precedent for future Congresses.” This sounds like Jordan is asserting his constitutional privilege under the “Speech or Debate Clause,” which protects lawmakers and staffers from questioning about legislative activity. But can a member assert the Speech or Debate privilege against Congress?
[...] the Ohio Republican was among those pushing a legal theory that Vice President Mike Pence had the authority to block certification of Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory. The gist of Jordan’s argument here is basically “So what?” Congress’ certification of the Electoral College is required by law. As a member of Congress, Jordan has a right to be involved in any debate tied to those congressional proceedings. Jordan – who spoke to Trump on Jan. 6 – also notes he had no role in the security posture for the Capitol that day. Jordan, in fact, was in the House chamber during the attack.
[...] So this a pivotal moment for the select committee’s probe.
Comment: "no legitimate legislative purpose." This is the language of SCOTUS that barred Congress from going on a fishing expedition of Trump's taxes. IOWs, Congress would have to be considering new legislation on tax reform to justify subpoenas to look at Trump's taxes. And they couldn't just single out one man to look at his taxes, either. They have to get a representative sample of a whole class of income earners. So pay attention (or better yet ignore) how these beltway propaganda exercises are reported.

Covid robbed America's children of their childhood and education. But, hey, Anthony Fauci and his wife got $10.4 million out of it. See "How Fauci has profited from the pandemic." We'll never be able to look at "science" the same way again. His salary as an NIH bureaucrat is $434,312 a year. For that kind of money, you'd think he could answer questions from Rand Paul and the other senators. One major source of Fauci income that you might not have thought of is attending galas.

I don't see where it warrants any big earth shattering news.

And the article even has a subheading, "Democrats Usually Hold an Advantage, and Did So in 2021". So I don't see where there is any longterm changes here or anything to gloat about.

Don't let this Gallup Poll fool you. There is no "14 point swing" in allegiances. All it means is fewer people will admit to a pollster that they are Democrats and a few more people will publicly admit they are Republicans. So Republicans are louder and Democrats are more soft spoken. With marginal adjustments, the underlying numbers are still in place. This sort of fake news offering false hope you need to be on the lookout for. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 04:23, January 19, 2022 (EST)
And the "14%", roughly one in six of people either being more courageous to speak up or ashamed making them quiet, is too marginal to hang your hat on. 04:29, January 19, 2022 (EST)

Latin America goes Pentecostal[edit]

In 1995, Latin America was 80 percent Catholic. In 2018, it was 59 percent. In Central America, the shift is especially dramatic. Honduras is now around 30 percent Catholic. See "Why the Catholic Church Is Losing Latin America." PeterKa (talk) 11:50, January 16, 2022 (EST)

There is a lot of immigration, both legal and legal, into the USA from Latin America. Latin America is very religious (see: Atheism and Latino Americans).
According to the 2019 edition of the Encyclopedia of Latin American Religions
The irreligious population are slowly, but steadily, increasing in size in Latin America. While in every country they constitute a minority, in some countries, they have gained considerable weight. This has occurred both in countries with higher levels of socioeconomic development – such as Chile (15.8%) and Uruguay (37.1%) – as well as in less developed ones such as El Salvador (12.1%) and Honduras (10.5%). The far majority of irreligious Latin American are religious “nones” who declare believing in a supreme entity but do not belong to religious groups. Atheism and agnosticism, instead, are a rare phenomenon, mostly restricted to elite segments.[10]
According to British author Edward Dutton, religious people are more likely to migrate (there are various reasons postulated, but it remains unclear why this is so).[11]See also: Religion and migration
By 2043, secularization will peak in the USA (just like it did in Europe), see: Secularism, Fundamentalism, or Catholicism? The Religious Composition of the United States to 2043 and American atheism and European desecularization in the 21st century and Desecularization

Comment on Biden presser[edit]

Like some of you, I too suffered through the 2 hour 38 minute ordeal of Biden's press conference (I could have been watching a performance of Rienzi). We've heard in the past how Fidel Castro used to make 5 hour speeches, or how Khrushchev's Secret Speech was 6 hours long. Now we have some insight on what really was happening.

In socialist societies, when the Dear Leader faces a crisis of confidence among adherents, he stands before them in one of these marathon sessions and attempts to justify failings and persuade them to keep the faith and continue following his leadership. IOWs, there is some interplay between the speaker and the audience of select individuals. Castro's marathon speeches weren't just monologues and diktats, they were given to be persuasive and restore confidence among the faithful, with some interaction between the speaker and hearers to gauge how the message was being received.

When asked about the midterm, Biden said, "Oh, yeah, I think it could easily be illegitimate ... The increase in the prospect of being illegitimate is in proportion to not being able to get these reforms passed."

It's RINO season, and Trump's going hunting[edit]

In a recent interview with Newsmax's Rob Schmitt, President Trump goes after rumored closet homo Lindsey Glam, another one of the Senate RINOs he once endorsed, for his response to January 6th and the treatment of the political prisoners.

"I mean, Lindsey's a nice guy, but he's a RINO. Lindsey's wrong." "I would absolutely be prepared, and Lindsey Graham doesn't know what the hell he's talking about, if he says that, because you have to have equal justice," Trump added. "It's very, very unfair what's happened to this group of people."

Personally, I think it's great to see him waking up more and more. He's also finally stopped shilling the vaccine at rallies, and started talking more about the racist anti-white agenda.

Platforms[edit]

While Liberal and cancel culture platform like Facebook are losing, Pro Free speech and Conservative platform are raising.

Video platform Rumble reported an increase in active users and content uploads during the month of January. Rumble has been a competitor to YouTube, touting technology that is "immune to cancel culture."

There were roughly 39 million monthly active users last month, a 19% increase from December. Users watched 10.8 billion minutes, an increase of 27% and creators averaged 4,383 hours of uploaded video per day, up 14%. "On the heels of the decline in U.S. and Canadian users at Facebook, and with Rumble's impressive January growth, it's clear that we are witnessing a major shift on the internet," said Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski.

The fact that Biden continues to fearmonger even after Zelensky has repeatedly told him to knock it off should erase all doubt that Biden is intentionally trying to start a war.--Geopolitician (talk) 22:43, February 14, 2022 (EST)

Its foreign policy is in lock step with the Deep State, so it should not be considered an ally of the American people.--Geopolitician (talk) 22:46, February 14, 2022 (EST)

The plan is to get Ukrainian military to fire on Russian troops in Crimea. When the Russians defend themselves, they will be accused of invading Ukraine. Alternatively, the Ukrainian military (120,000 troops) may make moves against the 15,000 man Donbas militias. The result of that would be an even bigger bloody mess immediately. But it's Biden, his Burisma pals, and Jake Sullivan urging Zelensky into this action, despite opposition from France, Germany, and most other NATO allies. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 22:49, February 14, 2022 (EST)
As a cynic, I doubt Putin ever planned to invade Ukraine. The crisis jacked the price of oil up to $100 a barrel at one point. I'm sure he made a bundle. It sounded like Biden was in the scam. But perhaps he is just an idiot. PeterKa (talk) 18:56, February 16, 2022 (EST)
Count me in, too. It's been the "Russian invasion hoax." I could cite at least a half dozen motives for it (beginning with picking up were the Obama regime left off after the Crimean annexation, Burisma collusion coverup, motives of Alexandra Chalupa, Alexander Vindman, and Dmitri Alperovitch of the Atlantic Council) but only hours ago found another one - ruining Russia as an international arms trade competitor (a twofer: technical inferiority and banning them from the SWIFT network).
But you're right. The whole thing has been a CIA/Biden regime disinformation campaign.
Another motive: to drive Russia out of Syria and attempt to make them focus more on their own national borders. That of course, and global arms sales, is about the only reason for NATO expansion. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 19:29, February 16, 2022 (EST)
Incidentally, it was $100 a barrel that funded what was just a regularly scheduled training exercise. Another motive is to keep Germany down on the farm and not exercise its own sovereignty. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 19:34, February 16, 2022 (EST)
Biden's looking for a "W" domestically and among NATO after the Afghan debacle. The media will present him as another JFK after the Bay of Pigs, staring down the Russian bear. Whatever happens, Putin comes out the winner. He was able to make his case on Russian security concerns to the international community, which has been ignored for 20 years. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 19:38, February 16, 2022 (EST)

NATO is beyond saving at this point. If Trump (or whoever succeeds him as leader of the MAGA movement) takes the White House in 2024, withdrawing from NATO needs to be done on Day 1.

You make good points.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 14:31, February 17, 2022 (EST)
Thank you, Andy. I'll now go even further: NATO also appears to have become a European branch of the Deep State. Its bureaucrats appear to be answering to the Washington foreign policy elites, and taking orders from them. If the other member states wish to avoid being reduced to mere vassals of the Washington foreign policy elites, they need to get out of the alliance ASAP. In fact, for our European "allies" getting out of NATO should be an even greater priority than getting out of the EU, because at least the EU is controlled by Europeans, not Washington.--Geopolitician (talk) 14:46, February 17, 2022 (EST)
The issue is quite simple and can be summarized very succinctly: the United Nations was created to outlaw "Wars of aggression"; since the end of the Cold War, NATO has waged two Wars of Aggression, (1) the bombing of Serbia, and (2) the Libyan war. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 15:00, February 17, 2022 (EST)
This isn't going to be another Kosovo in 1998, when NATO attacked Serbia without a UN Resolution and Russia sat on its hands while their Serbian brothers were slaughtered by NATO. In 1914, Russia came to the aid of Serbia when the Austrian Empire moved against it in revenge for the killing of the Archduke. Russia will not stand idly by while NATO-backed Ukrainian neo-Nazis who fought with Hitler and the SS against Russians attack the 4 million Russians in the Donbas.

Let's reset here?[edit]

Logically, it seems to me that (at least) one of the following seven claims must be right:

  • China doesn't matter (to the US).
  • China does matter, but Russia doesn't.
  • Russia matters, but it's European NATO's problem.
  • Russia matters, but Putin doesn't.
  • Putin matters, but he's European NATO's problem.
  • Putin matters, but Ukraine doesn't.
  • Ukraine matters.

I write not to disabuse anyone deluded enough to believe one of the first six, but rather buttress the instincts of those who feel sure the seventh is true but perhaps aren't precisely sure why.

Of course, "Ukraine matters" doesn't automatically mean sending troops etc. But it does mean we have a heck of a lot of skin in this game. Rejecting isolationism doesn't imply interventionism, unilateral or otherwise (still less, neoconservatism). Short of physically severing Norstream-2 (What's stopping us?), bolstering our front-line Article-Five commitments is sound strategy, not least because freed-up domestic troops (eg Poles) might be redeployed to advantage against a plainly aggressive escalation on the part of a Putin-controlled Russian Federation.

This is geopolitics, folks. If you can't stand the strategic heat, then you might prefer to talk casually, idly of mere tactics - but outside hell's kitchen. The Sudetenland didn't matter much, either. But Hitler did. Xi matters, and Putin matters. Wake up and smell the coffee: this is Cold War 2.0 - and it's for all the marbles. If you want peace, prepare for war. -SannyG CptSandra (talk) 13:34, February 19, 2022 (EST)

PS: There's a bad argument that's frequently advanced, often implicitly, by otherwise typically clear-minded observers like, say, Tucker Carlson, the gist of which is: "The US military-industrial complex is always seeking conflict, therefore prosecuting this particular conflict is not genuinely in America's real interest." That conclusion does not follow: just because Tucker Carlson isn't interested in war doesn't mean war isn't interested in him or, more to the point, his country(wo)men.

PPS: There is also the admittedly tiresome matter of the Budapest memorandum (<https://www.dw.com/en/ukraines-forgotten-security-guarantee-the-budapest-memorandum/a-18111097>), to which the US, UK, and Russia are signatories. This was not a treaty and has no force in international law (a fiction anyway: systems of law exist within jurisprudences). Hence, no legal obligations flow from it. Moral obligations, though, flow in abundance: for the US, or the UK for that matter, to renege on Budapest and to betray Ukraine would be unutterably shameful which, sadly, won't stop perfidious Albion from so doing nor, equally sadly, the United States. What might well stop them, however, is the realization that reneging will inevitably lead to a global surge of nuclear proliferation - and no country will ever again make the mistake of giving up it's nukes. It's worth noting, by the way, that because Russia (under Yeltsin) was an original signatory and promised fully to respect Ukrainian national sovereignty (including the right freely to join trade and military alliances etc), the present tensions are not a fact about Russia, but are purely a fact about Vladimir Putin - just as the tensions in 1930s Europe were not a fact about Germany or even Versailles but, rather, were a fact about Adolf Hitler. Those who will not learn from history are condemned to repeat it; instead, let's wise-up and face this dangerous bastard down.

As of this moment, it appears the US aim is to take out the Russian navy, which will facilitate (Biden's bosses) China long run aims to takeover Taiwan, dominate the South China Sea and access to Europe. It also moreless kicks Russia out of Syria. (Northern, Pacific, and Black Sea fleets are about 175 ships in total compared to China 700+ and the US about 400). The US assault appears focused on the Black Sea fleet. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 13:40, February 19, 2022 (EST)
As to the EU (a political question), the idea that people aspire to join the EU after Brexit rings hollow. RobSLet's Go Brandon!`
It pains me to disagree but, since I presently reside in the UK, I can say with some certainty that Brexit was a very unique event - which isn't to say that no other country will ever leave the EU but, respectfully, what is your argument to the effect that any leavers imply no joiners? Regardless, more plausibly, Ukraine might join the six-country (Bulgaria, Romania, and Croatia along with Brazil, Argentina, and Peru) queue to join the OECD, a very healthy step for the people of a (by-and large) west-facing nation to take without abandoning formal non-alignment (compare Finland, which joined the OECD in 1969 but didn't join the EU for another quarter of a century and, like Sweden, remains outside NATO half a century on). -Sanny CptSandra (talk) 16:45, February 20, 2022 (EST)
The EU is nothing sacred, and remainers are just a bunch of xenophobic knuckle-dragging Russophobes. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 20:52, February 20, 2022 (EST)
Were you drunk when you wrote that, RobS, or just having a really, really bad day? Remoaners are xenophobes now? And rubes to boot? Also, who ever said the EU was "sacred"? It certainly wasn't voters in the seventeen of twenty-two counties here in Wales that opted to leave after, in most cases, a fair amount of quite careful thought.
Wouldn't we all benefit from a slightly more nuanced discussion here? I think so. -San CptSandra (talk) 15:40, February 21, 2022 (EST)
So, in this discussion we need to separate political questions from military questions. It's like the interim phase between the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand and Guns of August when diplomacy failed. Political questions, such as you outlined, move to the back burner. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 13:55, February 19, 2022 (EST)
The argument from her Admiralty that ultimately persuaded (then) British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher to re-take the Falkland/Malvinas archipelago following Leopoldo Galtieri's invasion in 1982 was (I paraphrase slightly): "If, today, you decide to do nothing, you will wake up tomorrow in a very different world." Don't kid yourself: this is exactly where we are at this very precise time; disappointingly, not a few generally otherwise-reliable observers seem weirdly blinkered about European security. Tulsi Gabbard, for instance, argues for non-intervention in perfectly good faith; her mistake is to construe the situation through the lens of (above all) domestic politics, past failures, and the like. I'm something of a Gabbard fan, all told, but we can't be right all the time: more often than not, commentators who succumb to these troubling if occasional bouts of strategic myopia fail even to engage with the geopolitical case for standing up to, for instance, Vladimir Putin made by, among countless others, most of former-President Donald Trump's own defense and foreign policy appointees (and other staff, eg Marc Thiessen), many and various generals, etc (with-or-without surnames beginning with 'K'), innumerable informed and astute experts like Ben Domenech and the Hudson Institute's Rebeccah Heinrichs (see <https://www.realclearworld.com/articles/2022/02/08/the_russia-china_alliance_is_real_815840.html>), etc etc, all of whom independently and rightly conclude that, for a start, the cause of nuclear non-proliferation and/or resisting Chinese global dominance dictate that our response to Russian aggression in Ukraine must be robust enough to send adrenaline into bloodstreams in the Kremlin. How? Why? They join the dots is all. -S CptSandra (talk) 17:40, February 24, 2022 (EST)
(1) The British invasion of the Falkland Islands violated the Monroe Doctrine; (2) the British invasion of the Falklands exposed the weakness of NATO; while the UK was invading the Falklands, the US picked up the slack of its NATO ally in the Mediterranean, drawing the US into a land war in Lebanon and ultimately the 1982 Beirut Barracks bombing killing 262 Marines. (3) The UK invasion of the Falklands allowed two minor allies, the UK & Israel (when Israel invaded Lebanon in 1982 Menachem Begin said "If the UK can go 6,000 miles to defend its interests, we can go 600 miles to Beirut to defend ours"), to begin invasions of their rivals knowing the US stood behind them to bail them out. (4) If Ukraine were a member of NATO, it could stage a false flag invasion by Russia and invoke Article 5. (5) You comparison is outdated. We're not that naive anymore to allow minor allies to drag us into their wars, unless the US has an idiot ignorant Democrat administration. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 20:00, February 24, 2022 (EST)
As to Ukraine, read George H.W. Bush's "Chicken Kiev" speech written by Condoleezza Rice. Rice was right, William Safire was wrong. The debate over Ukraine in the US has been ongoing since before 1991.

RobSLet's Go Brandon! 20:12, February 24, 2022 (EST)
As to nuclear proliferation, we live in an age of nuclear blackmail. Countries obtain nuclear weapons or seek to obtain nuclear weapons precisely to get paid off in US aid not to use them. Such is the case with Pakistan, Iran, and North Korea. Putin did us a favor when Zelensky threatened to obtain nuclear weapons (and Condoleezza Rice was precisely correct in her Chicken Kiev speech for this very reason). RobSLet's Go Brandon!`

Rubio[edit]

"If true, this would be one of the greatest political scandals in American history." Don't fall for it. Rubio has known it was true since he aided the cover up of Mark Warner's leaking the Carter Page FISA warrant and witness tampering with Adam Waldman, attorney for Oleg Deripaska who hired Christopher Steele. Everything in CP's SSCI article is verified, as well as the Uniparty article. And here he is also pitching the Ukraine war, so Biden can blow up and destroy the Burisma documents.

Eric Adams[edit]

What a putz.

Yes, we know that blacks mistrust of police stretches back to the Fugitive Slave Act. But we need a wider discussion and understanding of plantation justice. When a black murdered a black on the plantation, he didn't get a jury trial (not until after 1865). Justice was meted out by the plantation master, the foreman, and the black community. Now, if the accused was a good worker and picked more cotton than others, and the victim was a lazy thief who messed around with other's girlfriends, the accused might get a good whipping to mollify the victim's family (they didn't want family and clan vendettas on the plantation, as all of them were used for breeding stock). If it were the other way around, a lazy thief and cheat killed a respected leader and worker, he'd get hanged as an example, and the plantation community would cheer the removal of a troublemaker and sociopath.

The legacy of these attitudes toward law and justice are being acted out today, from Kamala Harris on down. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 01:04, February 17, 2022 (EST)

Two new Ebola grants support Ebola research exploring how Ebola spreads in the body with implication for targeted Ebola viral treatments


Olena Shtanko, Ph.D., a Staff Scientist at the Texas Biomedical Research Institute (Texas Biomed), has received more than $1 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to explore different aspects of Ebola virus infection.

Understanding how cells become infected is critical to identifying and designing therapies that target viral replication and spread in a host.


“The general model of spread of Ebola virus infection where a viral particle infects a cell, replication begins, new virus particles are made and released into the body to infect neighboring cells is probably a bit too simplistic,” said Shtanko, who is part of the Texas Biomed Host-Pathogen Interactions Program. “How does the virus really get from the site of initial infection, penetrate dense tissues, evade the body’s defense system and end up in distant organs, such as the liver, just a few days later? We really don’t know.”


Over the next two years, Shtanko will explore precisely how the Ebola virus hijacks a key immune cell in the body called macrophages. Even though these large cells specialize in detecting and killing harmful invaders, Ebola and other filoviruses have found a way to enter and hide in the cells. The macrophages then help distribute the virus around the body, serving like Trojan horses, through an unknown mechanism. Shtanko will investigate how exactly virus infection transforms migration and invasive properties of macrophages to maximize its spread in the host.


Shtanko is also excited to explore a possible alternative mode of spread — tunneling nanotubes, dynamic connections between cells, which allow cells to communicate by exchanging content over relatively long distances (up to 200 microns). While these structures have been shown to play a prominent role in promoting neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, and spread of a variety of viruses, including HIV-1 and influenza, no one is known to have investigated their role in disseminating Ebola and related viruses.


“It is critical to understand if Ebola virus is able to crawl from cell to cell without ever creating new virus particles that move freely in the body, because those free particles are the typical targets for the immune system and pharmaceutical interventions,” Shtanko said. “Ebola virus might be escaping early detection and perhaps eventually establishing persistent infection by using these nanotubes.”


Such basic research insights can help inform development of more effective anti-viral treatments or vaccines. The research projects will involve cells and tissues infected with Ebola virus – research that can only be safely conducted in the highest level biocontainment laboratories, called BSL4. Texas Biomed is uniquely positioned for this type of research, hosting both a BSL4 lab and the Southwest National Primate Research Center. While this initial research will be in vitro (or in a petri dish), the studies will eventually move to more advanced animal models.


Additionally, Dr. Shtanko is collaborating with several Texas Biomed investigators on these projects: Texas Biomed President/CEO Larry Schlesinger, M.D., a renowned expert on macrophages whose lab studies macrophages and their role in tuberculosis; Professor Andrew Hayhurst, Ph.D., who has engineered novel llama domain antibodies specific for Ebola virus; and Professor Ricardo Carrion, Jr., Ph.D., an expert on development of non-human primate models of Ebola virus disease.

This research is funded by two R21 grants #AI151717 and #AI154336 from National Institutes of Health National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases.

Monkey Caretakers Are Needed Must Have Drivers License Why ?


1. Must have valid driver’s license


2. meet Texas Biomed driving standards.


Do you remember the news about the truck carrying 100 lab monkeys in danville pa that crashed and 3 or 4 monkeys were shot dead euthanized by state police in PA ?


The monkeys in Danville PA were said to be numbered at 100 monkeys being transported by truck and the truck crashed in Danville PA causing monkeys to run loose in Danville PA causing citizens of Danville PA to panic .


Well this job posting advertised on Texas Bio Medical Research Center website seeking monkey caretakers with a drivers licenses could possible be a reason why a truck crashed in Danville PA carrying 100 lab monkeys ? Although we are not able to verify if this was in fact the reason for the monkey truck crash in Danville pa or not, perhaps its not the reason at all behind the monkey crash in danville pa how could anyone find out or really know the reason of why a truck carrying 100 monkeys crashed in danville pa  ? No one really knows the reason behind the monkey truck crash in danville pa or the cause of the monkey truck crash in danvilla pa. The monkey caretaker job posting does lead a person to ask questions about why a monkey caretaker would need to have a drivers license and meet Texas Bio Medical Driving Standards as posted in the monkey caretaker job ad posted on Texas Bio Medical Research Center website .


The job ad is seeking monkey caretakers to take care of monkeys in a lab in the united states.


The job ad is still active and you are required to have high school degree.


You must be exposed to HIV according to the job ad.


What kind of person would take a job to be exposed to HIV on a daily basic ?


The job ad does not state how much money the money caretaker will be paid.


How much money would you have to be paid to have a job where you would be exposed to monkeys infected with HIV ,Herpes B Virus and Simian Retrovirus, Hepatitis B & C. ?


1 million dollars maybe some might take the job then.


What are the requirements of this monkey caretaker job ? Think a friend of yours might want the job ?


One year of animal caretaker experience , Must be able to read and follow written and verbal orders from Supervisor and Veterinarian , Must be able to write legibly and record health data and some research data.


Must have valid driver’s license and meet Texas Biomed driving standards.


Texas Bio Medical Research Center is hiring many positions for animal research in texas.


Many people never heard of texas bio medical research center.

You probably have not heard about labs hiring monkey animal caretakers as were are the only news website reporting this news story as the media has deemed it not news worthy . The monkey crash in danville pa was news worthy though .


Ebola Outbreak Map . Com wanted to screen print out the job ads in case they were deleted from the internet.

This story is very shocking and we do not condone any animal abuse specially injecting HIV, Ebola or any other disease into any animal .

You must share this news story on facebook , twitter, GETTR and GAB but GAB wont let you post our links so you can not share our news on GAB .

Ebola Research Texas Bio Medical Research Center

The NIH Grant Funded Animal Experiment Center will provide brand new indoor/outdoor housing for up to 800 nonhuman primates

Southwest National Primate Research Center is supported by the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs, National Institutes of Health through the grant P51 OD011133.


Texas Biomedical Research Institute (Texas Biomed) and the Southwest National Primate Research Center (SNPRC) broke ground today on four new buildings that will enable them to continue providing exceptional care for nonhuman primates, play a central role in addressing the nation’s nonhuman primate shortage, and accelerate the Institute’s growth in infectious disease research.


Animal models are a critical resource in the development of diagnostics, therapies and vaccines for infectious diseases, such as COVID-19, HIV, Ebola and tuberculosis, as well as understanding related cancers, diabetes, neurodegeneration and more.

The Animal Care Complex will be built on Texas Biomed’s 200-acre campus, with construction estimated to get underway after the holidays and finish in early 2023. The complex consists of four structures: three large indoor/outdoor housing spaces that can support multiple primate species. The 18,000-square-foot animal care building will feature a top-of-the-line veterinary clinic, pathology labs and a central meeting space for animal care staff.

“First and foremost, this project is about providing the best possible care for our animals,” says Deepak Kaushal, PhD, Director of the SNPRC. “Our talented and compassionate team provide exceptional care to our 2,500 primates, and these new facilities will ensure they can continue to do that well into the future.”


Texas Biomed and SNPRC are committed to exceeding the highest standards of care for laboratory animals, and are fully accredited by the international agency AAALAC. The new care complex will support those efforts through modernized facilities and structures designed to withstand extreme weather events, which are projected to occur more frequently as the climate changes.

The care complex will also enable SNPRC to strategically expand its critical role supporting biomedical research. The ongoing national primate shortage was exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic, with not enough animals available for required pre-clinical tests of vaccines and treatments before moving into human clinical trials.


“Nonhuman primates are the unsung heroes of biomedical research and are essential to helping us eradicate infectious diseases here in San Antonio and around the world,” says Larry Schlesinger, MD, President and CEO of Texas Biomed. “This complex will enable us to strategically grow our colony and help ensure the nation is better prepared for future pandemics.”

This is the first major construction project as part of Texas Biomed’s 10-year Strategic Plan launched in 2019. A $4 million grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration kick-started fundraising efforts for the more than $15 million project, and generous donor support and institutional funds are covering the remaining costs.


San Antonio City Councilwoman Melissa Havrda notes that the growth for Texas Biomed in the next 10 years will be a win-win for her district and the overall region.

“Texas Biomed is a critical piece of the city’s public health infrastructure and an important economic development partner in my district,” she says. “Studies show Texas Biomed will contribute $3 billion to our region’s economy once this decade of growth culminates. That impact will be phenomenal.”


SNPRC is one of seven National Primate Research Centers and houses several species of nonhuman primates with unique features: the largest colony of baboons in the U.S., which has lived at Texas Biomed for eight generations; the largest group of geriatric marmosets in the U.S., which help study disease and aging; and rhesus macaques bred to be free of specific pathogens, which are integral to the study of HIV, TB, COVID-19 and other infectious diseases.

Alternative methods for studying diseases and treatments are still under development and there is no replacement for evaluating how an entire body will respond to a medicine or vaccine. Studies carefully move through a process and only proceed to primates if showing promise in cells and smaller animals. The fewest possible animals are used and humanely treated throughout.

Significant medical advancements that have come from working with SNPRC primates include: the neonatal high frequency ventilator, hepatitis B vaccine, hepatitis C cure and Ebola virus treatment and vaccine. COVID-19 therapeutics and vaccines were shown to be safe and effective through studies at SNPRC before moving into human clinical trials. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] [[User talk:{{{1}}}|(talk)]]

It is true that CNN is creating a distraction and diversion from the failures of the Biden regime, but at least CNN is talking about how the GOP might do better in the midterms than what the polls are currently showing rather than something negative about Trump and / or the GOP.

Biden has (probably) started his first war. Now what?[edit]

As some if not most of you already know, Putin has formally recognized the rebel provinces of Donetsk and Luhansk as independent states. Thus, it is now official Russian policy that Ukraine is waging a war of aggression against two independent states, as opposed to cracking down on an internal uprising. Putin has also ordered that Russian troops be deployed into rebel-held territory to serve as peacekeepers, a move which many will undoubtedly see as a pretext for if not the beginning of an invasion of Ukraine.[18]

Of course we can "thank" Joe Biden for this. He couldn't keep his troops put or even his mouth shut, even after both Putin AND Zelensky (the latter who is a warmonger in his own right) repeatedly told him to do so. I have no doubt Putin's conclusion that Biden was acting in bad faith and thus could not be appeased, was a significant factor in his decision to go ahead with deploying troops into the disputed territory. For all intents and purposes, Joe Biden has started his first war, even if we're not actually fighting it (yet).

In hindsight, how do we respond to this? Of course there are obvious things like condemning Biden's actions and demand that he be impeached, and perhaps prosecuted as a war criminal. But what about Putin? Despite the fact that Biden is the one who escalated the conflict to this point, should we be condemning Putin for taking this action? He is putting Ukraine's territorial integrity on the line, after all. Or should we be celebrating a possible invasion, on the grounds that (A) Putin has no choice but to invade in order to defend his country; and (B) the Ukrainian government is a Deep State Puppet anyway?

Aye-yae-yae. And Let's Go Brandon.--Geopolitician (talk) 18:54, February 21, 2022 (EST)

Well, we could be even more radical and proceed, not from Ukraine's flawed government and entrenched corruption etc, but rather from the aspirations of its people, majorities of whom want to see corruption tackled, a free press holding politicians and officials to account, and progress toward western-style freedoms along a locked-in long-term trajectory of civil reform.

China refuses to back Russia at UNSC meeting over Ukraine[edit]

Those who were expecting (and/or hoping) for China to give a full-throated defense of Russia's recent actions regarding Ukraine should be surprised (and/or disappointed). The Chinese ambassador to the UN spoke very briefly at the UNSC meeting, and during his remarks he made no mention of Russia's actions at all. Instead, he stated that all parties must exercise restraint.[20]

No it's not. "All parties" means NATO & the US. Everybody knows the UN Security is as useless as a screen door on a submarine cause Russia will veto any attempt to pass a Resolution, if Blinken is stupid enough to embarrass himself by proposing such a thing (which could happen, since the Biden junta seems to be gluttons for adding "L" to the W/L column).

Zelensky gives Putin the perfect excuse to push for regime change in Kiev[edit]

If Putin wasn't planning to march all the way to Kiev before, he may have a perfect excuse to do so now.[21]

Zelensky is insane to even suggest the idea of Ukraine obtaining nuclear weapons AFTER Russian troops have entered Ukrainian territory. The only reason I can come up with as to why he would say this is because he's thinking about using nukes in "first strike" attacks on Russian or even his own soil.

I take back what I said about Zelensky being more level-headed than Biden. At this point he isn't, and in fact may be worse than Biden.--Geopolitician (talk) 12:52, February 22, 2022 (EST)

But given Putin's thinking, it would be much more advantageous to keep that comedian in place who openly defies Biden and exposes what a duplicitous dunce Biden is. Bottomline, the US IC and media are playing the tried-and-failed emotional headline grabber game while Putin & Co. play the longgame.

Actually, NATO faces the same kind of demise the USSR did and for the same reasons. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 14:37, February 23, 2022 (EST)
Let's do a purely unemotional economic analysis. NATO has a small administrative operational budget, but its real strength is in a commitment by member states to spend 2% of GDP on defense. The Ukraine mess is predicated over Ukraine joining NATO. Ukraine just lost about 1/7 of both its population and GDP. If Ukraine were to join NATO, its defense commitment would be about 1/7 less than before the crisis erupted. Now the argument is that fellow members of NATO would be willing to shed blood to enslave people and territory to a defensive alliance that those people want no part in. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 14:46, February 23, 2022 (EST)
So apply the same fundamental and technical analysis you would to buying a stock to Ukraine joining NATO with only 6/7ths of its potential longterm contributions.

It subsequently was even censored here by Prof. RJ Jensen. My point is, I am well familiar with all sides of this dispute. As an editorial comment, I would say today the current Ukraine manufactured crisis is an effort by NATO and the Western alliance to make amends with those who accused the West of betrayal throughout the Cold War, without the West admitting to it. These facts have been censored up to about 10 years ago, and re-introducing them now may even engender controversy.

Here's an example of a Ukrainian Nazi, born in Ukraine, now an American citizen who served on the National Security Council staff during the Trump administration and was instrumental in Trump's impeachment, Alexander Vindman, attempting to drive the U.S. to war with Russia to do what Ukraine cannot do for itself. This was broadcast on MSNBC one hour ago. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 20:11, February 23, 2022 (EST)
Vindman and Alexandra Chalupa are the children and grandchildren of what the German Nazis call Schutzmanshaft - locals who aided the Einsatzgruppen in wiping out civilians and villages, or who served in Waffen SS Divisions made up of Ukrainian nationals. They hate Russians for how the USSR punished their families after the war. Many now, in the Ukrainian diaspora, serve on the Atlantic Council, in NATO, in the Pentagon and the National Security Council, and on the Democratic Party Ethnic Outreach Committee, but their loyalty is to Ukrainian nationalism. And they seek to get NATO and the US to do to Russia what the Ukrainian government itself is incapable of. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 20:25, February 23, 2022 (EST)
Vindman is Jewish, and there's no hard evidence Chalupa is descended from Banderaites (her father was born in Germany to Ukrainians who had fled from the USSR, but there's no info beyond that).

The Chalupa sisters were instrumental in organizing the Maidan coup. The Maidan coup started with a tiki torch parade of Ukrainian fascists on the anniversary of Stepan Bandera's birth. From there, Chalupa targeted Paul Manafort and Oleg Deripaska to invent a phoney Trump-Russia narrative. Consumed with anti-Russian hate, Chalupa didn't realize Manafort and John Podesta (and Bernie Sanders campaign manager Tad Devine) were working for the same Ukrainians, or that Oleg Deripaska had laundered $25 million for Robert Mueller for an operation in Iran, and that Andrew McCabe was Deripaska's case officer.

Situation update[edit]

Update: Looks like Ukrainian Nazis (Azov Battalion) are being pounded with Stalin's Organs (Grad MRLS) east of Mariupol [23] right now. The weapons are legendary from the Battle of Berlin. The US and West never developed such weapons.
As to the situation in the north, a movement toward Kharkiv and possibly Kyiv would a diversion to keep AFU (Armed Forces of Ukraine) away from supporting the main target, the Azov Battalion in Mariupol. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 23:05, February 23, 2022 (EST)
UPDATE: TASS is reporting Putin said that the end goal is to "demilitarize" and "denazify" Ukraine. Going by that statement, it appears that what's happening right now is indeed a regime change mission.--Geopolitician (talk) 00:08, February 24, 2022 (EST)
Not necessarily. It can mean just neutering the military. I don't see a longterm occupation, either. They will bring Nazis in Donbas to trial. And that's the only charge they need, per law throughout much of Central and Western Europe - displaying Nazi insignia. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 00:52, February 24, 2022 (EST)

Ukraine is being "Finlandized." But Americans will be about as popular in Germany as they are in Russia after this, given Germans pay 10 times for home heating fuel (in the long German winters) as people do in the U.S. Can Germany fight its way out of the NATO grip now to do its own commercial deals with Russia, and say "screw American sanctions"? RobSLet's Go Brandon! 01:35, February 24, 2022 (EST)
With the capture of Kyiv and Odessa, regime change is possible. However the center of resistance is Mariupol, a port city on the Sea of Azov. Mariupol likely would remain occupied, and land corridor created to link Crimea by land. When borders are redrawn, Odessa and Kyiv (and Lvov) will remain in a Ukrainian state.

So what remains is the question of Kharkov; you will recall, Hitler captured 600,000 Red Army troops here 80 years ago, measured against a Russian total force of 200,000 today and Ukraine force of 250,000. Kharkov now is about 80% Ukrainian, and despite its strategic location linking Donetsk to Russia, I doubt the Russians want this thorn in their side longterm.

Big red tsunami[edit]

At the time of the 2020 election, the Dems had a lead of 6.8 points on the generic ballot. Now they are at -4.5. That's a swing of 11.3 points. Out of fifty states, only California, Maryland, Massachusetts, and Vermont still have Dem majorities after you factor in an 11 point swing.

The current partisan lineup in the House is 222 to 213. According to Cook Report, a five-point swing in the popular vote corresponds to 39 seats changing hands. They haven't calculated outcomes for a swing bigger than that. Based on their PVI system, I calculate that an 11-point swing corresponds to a 317-to-118 Republican majority in the House. The Dems get two of Ohio's 16 congressional districts in this scenario. PeterKa (talk) 15:02, February 22, 2022 (EST)

You need to factor in the internal GOP war on RINOs. Too much energy is spent trying to swap one RINO for another RINO in a district where a Republican can only get elected with Democrat votes. Face it, a RINO is a reflection of the district, not the beliefs of an individual person. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 15:13, February 22, 2022 (EST)
Down here in Texas, in the predominantly Hispanic Rio Grande Valley, the GOP is outpacing the Democrats in terms of voter turnout and enthusiasm. One of the big reasons, of course, is the Democrats' total sell-out to the abortion lobby, something which doesn't sit well with Catholics who actually practice their faith. Link here if you want to add it to the main page: [26] Quidam65 (talk) 12:17, February 23, 2022 (EST)
But can the territory be held beyond two years? The question is twofold and dependent upon two factors: (1) conversion of voters away from Democrats to conservative values and the GOP (which may occur on a partial scale) and (2) the GOP becoming accommodating to divergent views and so-called "RINO voters", people who float in-and-out, also known as Democrat ticket-splitters. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 15:28, February 23, 2022 (EST)
When you see a mass exodus of voters from one party the "Independent" column, in this case Democrats (but we've seen it happen to the GOP before as well), that is not necessarily a good sign. It means the opposition party is not welcoming or getting its message out. We hear talk all the time about "enthusiasm" and voters being "fired up", which comes at the expense of voter apathy among opponents and "Independents". You cannot rely on voter apathy to build winning coalitions longterm. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 15:34, February 23, 2022 (EST)
So right now there is anger among Democrats at their own party. There is the same anger among Republicans at so-called "RINOs". If you think this means "red wave", it sounds to me more like what Democrats call "Russian propaganda." RobSLet's Go Brandon! 15:39, February 23, 2022 (EST)
In sum, the presence of "RINOs" (which is made to be a derisive term) actually means the GOP is tolerant, whereas the Democrats (like their Canadian liberal brethren) are intolerant of "unacceptable views", in this case Progressives intolerant of "regular Democrats". RobSLet's Go Brandon! 15:46, February 23, 2022 (EST)
These same battles were fought out in the Democrat party with candidates like McGovern & Gary Hart, but how many regular Democrats actually made the "party switch" even in the Reagan era? It wasn't until all the New Deal regular Democrats died off that the progressive wing under Clinton took over. But regular Democrat ticket-splitters, who vote for RINOs is preferable to them voting for progressives if the GOP will not be accommodating to their views. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 15:56, February 23, 2022 (EST)
Manuchin is the classic example. He has a coalition of regular Democrats and crossover Republicans. If he were to leave the Democrat party, few regular Democrats would follow, and the GOP (even with Democrat crossover Manuchin loyalists) is not strong enough to carry him to victory. This is the same position all RINOs are in. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 16:13, February 23, 2022 (EST)

Trudeau undeclares emergency[edit]

Well, I guess we now know who really counts in Canadian politics: the bankers. Trudeau froze the assets of those organizing the Freedom Convoy, as well as the accounts of truckers parked on the wrong street. What happened to parking tickets? This led to a run on the banks, so the Canadian Bankers Association told him to back off.

An emergencies bill to authorize this had already passed the House and was being debated in the Canadian Senate. The Senate is appointed and is generally a tool of the prime minister. This maneuver leaves the MPs who voted for this measure in an awkward position.

Prime Minister Pierre Eliott Trudeau, the father of the current prime minister, invoked a similar measure in 1970 to deal with kidnappings by Quebec separatists. That's the closest thing to a precedent in Canadian history. See "'Immediate emergency situation is over': PM Trudeau revokes Emergencies Act."

Trudeau may have been aiming for a Canadian version of January 6th. Most of Canada's covid restrictions are province-level. The provinces have agreed to lift their covid restrictions by March 1. That makes it harder to see Trudeau's actions as motivated by public health concerns.

Sundance says that Trudeau feared that the Senate vote might go against him. In the debate, one senator after another was endorsing the measure. So I'm not sure I buy that. PeterKa (talk) 00:04, February 24, 2022 (EST)

"The Royal Canadian Mounted Police advised financial institutions this past Monday they were free to unlock the financial accounts of individuals who organized or participated in the 23-day Ottawa protest, also known as Freedom Convoy 2022. The Canadian Bankers Association, which represents the country’s chartered banks, said Wednesday that members “acted quickly to unfreeze accounts,” according the Wall Street Journal. This is 200 bank accounts worth US$3 million. PeterKa (talk) 01:08, February 24, 2022 (EST)
He only did it so he wouldn't be linked to his NATO pal Zelensky who declared martial law minutes after Trudeau allegedly rescinded it. Brilliant move on Zelensky's part, now any civilian atrocities can be blamed on his orders. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 02:36, February 24, 2022 (EST)
When it mattered, the Canadian Bankers Association was all that stood between Canada and dictatorship. Trudeau is hardly a popular leader. His Liberal Party got 33 percent of the vote in the last election while the Conservatives got 34 percent. Despite this second place finish, the Liberals dominate parliament with 47 percent of the seats. The constitutional structure really needs an overhaul. I recommend proportional representation. That would make less likely that any one party would dominate. As for the Senate, what a useless group they turned out to be. PeterKa (talk) 18:20, February 24, 2022 (EST)

Ann Coulter on Ukraine[edit]

Biden's response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine is to sanction Nordstream 2. Why did Russia invade Ukraine under both Obama and Biden, but not under Trump? Because Biden's policy of jacking up energy prices puts foreign exchange into Russia's central bank. This allows the bank to protect the Russian currency despite sanctions.

Here is a handy chart of Russia's foreign exchange reserves. They went from $350 billion in 2015 after the last Ukraine crisis to $630 billion today. Putin spent years methodically pumping up these reserves to prepare for a Ukraine rematch. We need a response that focuses on cutting our dependence on foreign energy sources. Build the Keystone Pipeline, resume fracking on public lands, and revive nuclear power.

No one writes a better column than Ann Coulter: "Stop Talking About Ukraine, Republicans!" How did the Dems win in 2020? By giving saturation coverage to George Floyd and to covid lockdowns and masks. Yet neither of these causes can be considered vote winners. It was a strategy to prevent the discussion of issues that might help Republicans, such as crime, immigration and Hunter Biden. PeterKa (talk) 10:45, February 24, 2022 (EST)

Biden to Doocy: I am not wise guy[edit]

Only moments ago, Peter Doocy, the Fox News White House Correspondent that Joe Biden called a “Stupid son-of-a-b” one month ago, humiliated our feckless leader once again, this time, by using his own words to question his position on the Russian president who initiated a full-scale war against Ukraine early this morning.

China abstains on Ukraine[edit]

Back on February 4, China and Russia agreed to a "no limits" partnership to oppose the West. Yet we have already reached a limit. China, along with India and the UAE, has voted to abstain on a UN Security Council condemning Russia's invasion on Ukraine. The vote was 11-1 with only Russia voting "No." But of course that's enough.

As usual, China has Taiwan on its mind. A lot of Ukraine-Taiwan analogies have been made lately. But it seems that China does not consider the two situations to be analogous. China's favorite argument against Taiwan is that it lacks UN and international recognition. Ukraine, like China, Russia and the U.S., is a founding member of the United Nations.

Xi will make a bid for a third term as party chairman at a conference this autumn. The collapse of the real estate bubble has resulted in a 25 percent pay cut for local officials. We can expect a lot of unhappy communists at this conference. The last thing Xi needs is accusations that he is undermining China's claim to Taiwan.

It seems that the invasion caught China by surprise. After the Afghanistan pullout, Putin must have assumed that Biden and Zelensky would roll if he gave Ukraine a push. After all, energy prices were up, he had foreign exchange in the central bank, and a weakling in the White House. Democrats don't seem to impress Russian leaders. JFK's weakness in Vienna is said to have inspired Khrushchev to send nuclear missiles to Cuba.

In 2014, the Russian public got all patriotic about Crimea. This time around, ordinary Russians don't seem to understand what Putin is doing. PeterKa (talk) 21:38, February 25, 2022 (EST)

Putin's best bet would be to cut a deal with Zelensky and leave the Maidan fascist regime intact. There could be an extended mop-up occupation in eastern Ukraine (to encompass Kharkiv) but Odessa would have to be ceded back to the Kyiv Maidan fascist regime in any agreement (perhaps after some bloody fighting).
If the PRC were to finally move against Taiwan in May, a stronger likelihood now more than ever, it really expose how American bluster has overextended itself; European NATO allies are unable or unwilling to pick up the slack if the US "pivots to the Asian-Pacific", further unraveling NATO.
What's interesting is the game India is playing here, and showing true world leadership. They are members of the anti-CCP Quad Alliance, formed after Biden's buddies released a bioattack on the planet. They are also aligned with Moscow.
As to Xi, everyone acts like it's a forgone conclusion he'll be coronated in November. I'm not so sure. (Following the Stalinist precedent, Stalin amassed so much power that by 1953 the office of General Secretary was somewhat of a burden beneath him, and he was quietly removed and replaced by Malenkov. This set in motion the assassination and coup plot against him with legal authority to party underlings to follow party instructions. Now, this version differs somewhat from most Western narratives, but it is the version widely accepted in Russia since Khrushchev and Brezhnev's times, particularly among post-Stalin party members. The party just voted him out). RobSLet's Go Brandon! 22:03, February 25, 2022 (EST)
First off, the Maidan regime is not fascist in and of itself. It just has allowed fascists to take control of parts of the military. A better description of the Maidan regime is "kakistocracy." Because only in a kakistocracy would a Jewish president descended from Holocaust victims allow his country's military to be partially controlled by fascists.
As for India, it is doing what we should've been doing the whole time. Being soft on Russia in order to ensure Russia remains a possible ally against China. India historically has been a closer ally to Russia than China has ever been, so perhaps there is still hope that Russia turns against China, if not for our sake then for India's.--Geopolitician (talk) 12:00, February 26, 2022 (EST)
The story of the rampant and socially acceptable xenophobia in Ukraine (which yes, even extends to Ukraine's minority Russian population) is not now, nor since 1991, been accurately reported in Western media. The Maidan regime is tolerant of, works with, and is reliant upon armed organized Fascists, which makes the Maidan regime fascist. A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

RobSLet's Go Brandon! 15:21, February 26, 2022 (EST)
Yes, the Maidan regime is tolerant of neo-Nazi groups who are anti-Russian. That still doesn't make the Maidan regime itself fascist.

The name itself, Ukraine, translates to "Borderlands". Ethnic, tribal, religious, and racial warfare dates back to Greek and Roman times. Efforts to create a unified state from a population built on diversity have been ongoing for centuries (for example, Solzhenitsyn documents how in Czarist times Russian signs were banned in Crimea to mollify Ukrainians, although Arabic signs were allowed among Taters. The result being discrimination against the majority population by their own government. Sound familiar? People living in Crimea, in Russian areas in Ukraine, and in Russia, are well aware of the history.) In Soviet times, with their multi-cultural and diversity agenda, were unable to stomp out xenophobia in the Borderlands (we will not even go into the Khazar Empire episode).

In an independent Donetsk Republic, Russians must expunge cursing Ukrainians from their vocabulary the same way Americans expunged the "N" word. This is the difference between Putin and Zelensky. Putin is willing to be a role model, whereas Zelensky hands out AK-47s to murder subhumans. Donetsk will not enter the Russian Federation until it becomes re-habbed and tolerant of its Ukrainian minority. And hopefully its Ukrainian minority will follow the example set by the Russian majority. (The problem in Donbas is not unlike the Arab minority living within the State of Israel.

As to chess, Zelensky has two choices, flee with his looted billions or remain and be a Russian stooge. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 17:40, February 26, 2022 (EST)
Again as to chess moves, Putin's best bet is to make peace with Zelensky, having severed the Donbas. And a peace deal will require Ukraine repealing from its constitution its desire to join NATO. Zelensky can remain in a Finlandized Ukraine (less the Donbas and Crimea), which is a workable solution for everybody. If Putin cannot accomplish this, he will have failed. (It's a matter of Ukraine accepting the new borders, i.e. recognizing the legitimacy of the Crimean Annexation and independence of the Donbass Republics).

Andy, are you saying that someone resisting a campaign to denazify Europe is "courageous"? ClaudeMcH (talk) 18:07, February 26, 2022 (EST)
Regarding "or else Putin himself will be ostracized by world outrage," I pray God you're right, Andy, I really do: Ukraine's government might be fundamentally, even irredeemably, broken and corrupt but, as has become clear in the last 48 hours, inasmuch as its people (and especially its youth) aspire, in time, to reach western standards of governance, accountability, civic virtue etc, to deny them a trajectory via (say) the OECD and NATO would be not only unconscionable but, also, recklessly obtuse strategically - and I offer that last concession only to appease the lonely, cynically Machiavellian geopoliticians hiding among CP's most productive readers, editors, and (perhaps) administrators. -Sandra CptSandra (talk) 18:33, February 26, 2022 (EST)

Atrocities against civilians committed by Ukrainian "democratic" regime[edit]

Zelensky imposed martial law, handed out weapons, and ordered a nationwide mobilization. This means civilians not engaged in fighting Russians who are fleeing encirclement in cities are being executed by Ukrainians. [29] These are war crimes. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 13:56, March 5, 2022 (EST)

It's reminiscent of Hitler flooding the sewers of Berlin to flush out civilians using them as bomb shelters and forcing them above ground to engage with Russians in 1944, or Stalin's orders to shoot Russian soldiers at the front if they attempted to retreat in the defense of Moscow in 1941. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 14:08, March 5, 2022 (EST)

Real time intelligence[edit]

The US is assisting the Kyiv regime with real time intelligence on Russian forces which aids in targeting artillery on Russian movements. This is the same thing that occurred in the Libyan war which allowed Libyan jihadis to corner Ghaddafi in a culvert before his execution (without NATO putting boots on the ground). The risk? (before a movement on Kyiv)? Russians may have to respond with an attack on U.S. satellites. War in space. Star Wars. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 18:36, February 26, 2022 (EST)

Right Scoop reports:

Vlady Putin’s forces have disupted internet in many places across Ukraine in order to better control the propaganda and prevent the truth about their actions from getting out. On Twitter Mykhailo Fedorov asked Musk to step in with his satellites, and in the last hour Musk replied that they have been enabled. So to be clear an American entrepreneur and businessman was able to short-circuit a dictator’s nefarious will by by using American, capitalist technology in order to thwart evil.

should read, So to be clear an American entrepreneur and businessman's satellite is about to be shot down by a Russian missile. Better than an act of war against U.S. taxpayer property. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 20:51, February 26, 2022 (EST)

Putin apparently misled about his intentions, and may be consumed by power and a bunch of "yes-men" as advisers. Video uploaded to the internet of a Russian tank invasion of Kyiv, if shocking as expected, could cause the end of Putin's career in Russia.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 21:28, February 26, 2022 (EST)

As to propaganda psyops, Sundance has a good take: [32]
"Everything we are seeing in U.S. media surrounding U.S. interests in Ukraine is a massive propaganda operation with the headquarters in the U.S. State Department and U.S. intelligence community. The sense of sympathy you are feeling is part of an intentionally manipulative operation from within this DC matrix.

The images, pictures, videos, speeches, soundbites and the cinematography broadcast by U.S. corporate media are all purposefully intended to create a very specific outlook within the American people toward the issues in Ukraine. The leftist United Nations, and the leftist U.S State Dept, will work together on this just like they have done in the prior examples (Ukraine 1.0, Libya, Egypt, etc.).

It is very easy to become a victim of psychological warfare intended to manipulate our opinions.

The neocons, war promoting agents working on behalf of the UniParty and the collective globalist interests, are all united in their effort.

Unfortunately, almost everything being transmitted from corporate news into our psyche is part of a battle for your mind.

RobSLet's Go Brandon! 23:06, February 26, 2022 (EST)
Pardon me, Dr. Spaniel has done three videos today. In the first he says:
"the operations that were we're now seeing in and around kiev are really not full blown attacks as were indicated on many of the mainstream media programs last night. what we saw yesterday and late last night was prepping the battlefield, prepping areas close to Kiev and other areas around Kiev with artillery strikes and air-to-ground strikes and rocket strikes, grad strikes. And we're also seeing reconnaissance in force by the Russian military. we've not seen an all-out assault on Kiev as of yet....you have to understand there is a great deal of propaganda at work right now on both sides of the equation. so you're not, if you're if you're listening to the mainstream media, and especially some of the stuff that's coming out both with the Russians and obviously the Ukrainians too, you're not getting entirely truthful information. the Ukrainians are actually doing a very very good job right now of attempting to motivate both its populace and the western world. we're starting to see the concept of battlefield heroes come to light, such as the ghost of Kiev and the sniper known as the reaper who has allegedly has 20 confirmed kills on his part by taking out Russian soldiers. and again, we can't confirm if in fact the ghost of Kiev exists ...
Sundance reports the Ghost of Kiev has been debunked. But that's just the propaganda war. Who cares.

Germany as Canada on their way to end Democracy closing multiple bank accounts of Trump supports, considers Right wingers are their worse threat not Russian threats[edit]

NewsPucnh reported fact check news about Germany. Germany now as Canada establish their own fascism again. the order was implemented by Interior Minister Nancy Faeser. their plan is government will terminate any Conservative and Trump supporters who speak against their government Interior Minister Nancy Faeser said on Wednesday in the Bundestag: “Right-wing extremism is the worst threat to our free and democratic basic order,”.

The fascist Feaser plan is similar to Justin Castro in in order to “stop radicalization and smash right-wing extremist networks”. the German government will go after the money of their critics. The German "Democracy Promotion Act" which is being prepared in Germany, will also consistently combat adversaries of the leftists by deploying the police and security authorities, while increasing the already overwhelming flow of leftist propaganda. Social Democratic Party (which is party of Nancy Feaser and current Chancellor Olaf Scholz) support act. The act was also welcomed by far left Alliance 90/The Greens party.

Germany Announces Their Plan To Target Trump Supporters And ‘Right-Wing Extremists’ By FREEZING Their Bank Accounts

Germany to Begin Closing Bank Accounts of Trump Supporters – Media Blackout --Alex Kosh (talk) 19:04, February 27, 2022 (EST)

We knew Justin Castro take peaceful Freedom Convoy as excuse to his Fascist act. But why Germany doing that during this crisis in Europe, which Russian forces could be on their borders any time. because the far leftists in Germany are afraid from Conservatives especially from who adopt pro Trump policies in Germany, because their all policies are failed with Russia and their illegal immigration, by Trump intention to Merkel on possible Russian invasion by using their money, their leaders dont listen. it seem many Germans now see president Trump (whose his grandfather born in Germany) keen on Germany more than their corrupt leaders like Merkel and Olaf Scholz --Alex Kosh (talk) 19:21, February 27, 2022 (EST)

Doubt that very much. This was a collective decision about Russian security interests made in Moscow. Putin's just the spokesman. He's not the singular dictator or demon the CIA & Western media paint him to be. Is he approaching retirement? Possibly. But the policy will not change.
Truth is, removing Russia from the SWIFT network will hurt Europe, America, NATO, and Germany more than Russia. It strengthens an alternative financial network being created by China, Russia, and India for global financial transactions. It shrinks the power and influence of the Western global banking network, which once was singular and all-powerful. SWIFT now has competition and less capital to work with, with the world's largest energy producer kicked out, and the two most populous energy consumers joining an alternative network.

Why did Putin activate nuclear forces?[edit]

On January 21. 2022 this video was uploaded to Youtube. It says:

"According to information published by the U.S. Department of Defense on January 19, 2022, the US Navy Ohio-class submarine USS Georgia (SSGN-729) is currently operating near Limassol, Cyprus, in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. This is an unusual public disclosure of the location of USS Georgia, one of four of the service’s converted Ohio class nuclear-powered guided-missile submarines, or SSGNs. This is being seen as a move to deter Russia from taking any military action against Ukraine. In this video Defense Updates analyzes how the U.S. has sent a message to Russia by publicizing USS Georgia's Mediterranean Presence? [...]

It means the boat is near Ukraine and in a position to take offensive actions if called for. USS Georgia an Ohio-class submarine is the second vessel of the United States Navy to be named for the U.S. state of Georgia. [...] The conversion of USS Georgia modified 22 of the 24 88 inch or 2.2 m diameter Trident missile tubes [IOWs the sub still carries 2 Trident nukes] This is what gives the SSGN a massive standoff attack capability. It tactically means that USS Georgia can hit targets in Crimea, Ukraine, and Russia with ease while cruising in the Eastern Mediterranean....Vice Admiral John Richardson, Commander of Naval Submarine Forces at the time, said in 2019, "By virtue of their concealment and endurance, the SSGN platform forces our adversaries to consider that they could be operating almost anywhere at any time”. He then added, “The sensor suite on the boat allows the captain to gather information and intelligence in situ, passing that back to the commander and responding on the spot. When you combine all that with the tremendous combat capability the boat brings – land attack missiles, special forces, torpedoes – that's a lot of bets the enemy has to cover down on.”

While the US has not shown any intent to act militarily and has instead indicated that it would retaliate diplomatically including the proposed ejection of Russia from the SWIFT financial system, an intervention can't be ruled out. In that situation, USS Georgia could inflict major pain on Russian forces.

Russia Insight posted on Youtube four days later, January 25, 2022 this response: "Putin: If Nukes Head Towards Russia We Are Going to Paradise But They Won't Have Time To Repent." In the 2 min video, Putin explains the MAW (Missile Advance Warning) system that detects missiles launched from anywhere, including submarines. Putin explains how a determination is made quickly if the trajectory is headed toward Russia. This is a computerized system that. The computer does not stop to debate if a submarine launched missile is as nuke or not. The system instantly retaliates.

So what do we have here? The Pentagon made a nuclear threat to intervene in January. Zelensky repeated another threat last week. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 04:38, February 28, 2022 (EST)

Senate Majority Leader Schumer Pushes Vote on Bill To Make Roe v. Wade PERMANENT, Regardless of Upcoming Supreme Court Decision[edit]

If someone doesn't mind this Article from ACLJ could be an important news headline:

"Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is pushing a Senate vote on a dangerous new piece of legislation[1] that would make abortion the law of the land, regardless of how the Supreme Court rules on the viability of Roe v. Wade this term."-ACLJ

(https://aclj.org/pro-life/senate-majority-leader-schumer-pushes-vote-on-bill-to-make-roe-v-wade-permanent-regardless-of-upcoming-supreme-court-decision[2])

It means nothing. We need an analysis of which Senators up for re-election, and which candidates in open seats are campaigning on a pro-life or pro-choice platform. As is, this news item is only intended to be divisive.
It has many hurdles to overcome, one of which would be, will it stand if to Supreme Court scrutiny if passed either before or after the midterms?

Why should we be celebrating Trump getting NATO to spend more on its military budgets?[edit]

Since NATO has been an aggressor rather than a defensive alliance these days, shouldn’t it be a bad thing that it is spending more?--Geopolitician (talk) 16:15, March 1, 2022 (EST)

What do you know or understand about NATO spending and military budgets? RobSLet's Go Brandon! 16:27, March 1, 2022 (EST)
NATO is an evil institution. So naturally it spending more money to beef up its militaries so they could more effectively wage wars of aggression is a bad thing. By getting NATO to spend more on so-called “defense,” Trump effectively helped prop up evil.--Geopolitician (talk) 16:38, March 1, 2022 (EST)

(ec)

Nato has its own stand alone budget, but that just goes to pay the light bill on Nato HQ in Brussels, administrative salaries, hotel, flight, etc.
Nato is a diplomatic house of cards, where each member commits to spend 2% of GDP on defense. They also allow fellow members to operate on their territory. But what do you do when Macedonia or Kosovo, with a GDP of diddly squat, fail to make their spending commits? Or Germany? Do you boot em out and turn that territory over to the Ruskies?
Now the case of Poland is interesting. They've met all their commitments. Then the US & Nato just now asked them "donate" used jets (with the promise the US will upgrade and resupply Poland) to Ukraine, cuz the US & UK can't cuz that would be an act of war. What would you do if you were Poland right now? Commit an act of war against Russia? RobSLet's Go Brandon! 16:39, March 1, 2022 (EST)
Why should I care about any of those details, when NATO is evil to begin with? Also, now that you mention Poland, I wouldn’t put it past that neocon Morawiecki to commit an act of war against Russia. After all, one can argue he has already done just that against Belarus.--Geopolitician (talk) 16:47, March 1, 2022 (EST)

Yes, the US is trying to instigate WWIII, and its NATO vassals are doing the same. By extension, NATO is being evil. That’s all that matters right now when it comes to this. On another note I partially take back what I said about “not caring.” I do care about the US and the UK making these “donation” requests to Poland, because that’s another example of the US trying to instigate WWIII.--Geopolitician (talk) 17:25, March 1, 2022 (EST)
So Nato has a lot of cards up its sleeve. If Poland rejects the offer for free, new jets, Lithuania is always a stand by. That would mean smuggling the jets across Poland's territory, but who cares? it's a matter of life and death. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 17:29, March 1, 2022 (EST)
The reason Trump should be commended for getting NATO to increase their budget is that America needs allies - not protectorates. In addition, the areas of the world that hold strategic interest to the USA are: East Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Conservative (talk) 17:31, March 1, 2022 (EST)

In context, "contrary to human nature" refers to teaching boys they can become girls, etc. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 18:08, March 1, 2022 (EST)
There is a certain godless wiki where their lady leader thinks she is asexual - like a worm! Their wiki is being led by a worm! It's very fitting that a worm leads their wiki given that that they are promoting the dying corpse of secular leftism. If there is one thing that worms love, it's corpses!

"Asexual reproduction can also be undertaken by some species of earthworm. This involves a single earthworm producing young from unfertilised eggs and is known as parthenogenesis."[36] Conservative (talk) 05:45, March 4, 2022 (EST)
Update: It's as obvious and plain as the nose on you face - Biden is a paid CCP stooge. Now Biden is threatening India - a Quad Alliance member forged after the CCP bioattack on the planet, with sanctions. This, after provoking Russia to invade in Ukraine by refusing to consider treaties the Russians proposed and virtually handing Taiwan to the CCP.
Yah, "defend democracy" my arse. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 18:48, March 4, 2022 (EST)

Pat Robertson twists Scripture, claims that Putin is the Antichrist[edit]

See here.

It’s precisely because of stuff like this that I distrust the evangelical wing of the GOP. They’re always pushing some sort of religious argument in favor of neocon foreign policy, and they are probably more responsible than anyone else for the mass deception of conservatives into supporting said policy.--Geopolitician (talk) 16:32, March 1, 2022 (EST)

Furthermore, it is the position of the Church Fathers that Nero was the Antichrist, and we are in the Millennium, which is meant to be symbolic rather than literal.--Geopolitician (talk) 16:35, March 1, 2022 (EST)
Robertson is the Joe Biden of the Christian Right - he's been wrong on every major foreign policy issue for the past 40 years. But it's interesting to see the woke Twitter crowd and MSM now embrace him. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 17:16, March 1, 2022 (EST)

State of the gaffes[edit]

In his State of the Union on Tuesday, Biden sure had some wacky things to say: "Because you can't build a wall high enough to keep out.....a vaccine." Perhaps he was about to say something stirring or dramatic, and then lost track. Don't forget, “our hearts and thoughts are with the Iranian people.” Iran and Ukraine, they sound so much alike.

What's "a pound of Ukrainian people"? "...and a pound of Ukrainian people. The proud, proud people, pound for pound, ready to fight with every inch of energy they have..." Those Ukrainians sure have a lot of energy, don't they? It sounds like a machine translation.

Was "fund the police" a policy U-turn, or just another gaffe?

The media hammered George W. Bush as gaffe-prone. He did misspeak on occasion. But it wasn't anything like this. He could give a major speech without multiple incidents, something Biden seems to be unable to do. PeterKa (talk) 08:21, March 2, 2022 (EST)

Trump contradicts himself on Ukraine[edit]

See here.

He talks about warmongers, then he talks about NATO “allowing” Russia to invade Ukraine, and finally he goes back to talking about warmongers.

I’m sorry. Does he not understand what’s going on? Or does he sincerely believe it’s possible to be both an appeaser and a warmonger at the same time?--Geopolitician (talk) 12:59, March 2, 2022 (EST)

NATO and Biden allow Putin to invade Ukraine by buying their gas and consider Global Warming hoax number one threat. thats what he mean --Alex Kosh (talk) 14:01, March 2, 2022 (EST)
Also without mention Biden hostile behavior against Russia and consider Putin as killer and thug, which is interfering against Russia. Trump wouldnt say that --Alex Kosh (talk) 14:03, March 2, 2022 (EST)
Trump has to pick a narrative. Either Biden’s weak against Russia or Biden’s warmongering against Russia. Trying to take a middle road will only make him look like the career politicians he’s constantly decried.--Geopolitician (talk) 15:44, March 2, 2022 (EST)

New article belongs in the problem attic[edit]

The Death Grips article looks like blatant parody. ClaudeMcH (talk) 15:58, March 3, 2022 (EST)

Hannity wants Putin assassinated[edit]

I don't understand why a conservative like Hannity would want to target someone who is forcefully standing up against Nazis and the LGBT agenda. Can someone please explain? ClaudeMcH (talk) 21:23, March 3, 2022 (EST)

Hannity is a neocon. He wants only the worst for Putin for daring to stand up to the American military-industrial complex.--Geopolitician (talk) 23:17, March 3, 2022 (EST)
Hannity is an idiot. Like Trump, they don't know the issues or understand the background, so they just go with the globalist mainstream media cause it appears to be the 'Patriotic' thing to do. Both of them need to just shut their mouths if they don't have anything worthwhile or constructive to say. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 09:04, March 4, 2022 (EST)
And of course, Hannity will hide behind his status as "Trump superfan" to deflect any criticism he rightfully earned by making those insane remarks. Because he's a gutless coward.--Geopolitician (talk) 23:07, March 4, 2022 (EST)
He's another victim of mass formation psychosis. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 04:12, March 7, 2022 (EST)
