The elite fear for their status and authority. This explains everything.

The elite are very insecure since the election of Trump. Trump represents populism, their worst nightmare.

Populism is the idea that ordinary people who did not attend Ivy League schools are as capable of governing as the elite who did.

Note that Trump, though a billionaire, did not attend an Ivy League school and does not have the manners or ideas or the elite.

This makes him a mortal threat to that elite, especially because he demonstrated the ability to avoid wars and boost the economy quite well in spite of being an outsider.

And so their Ivy League degrees and other signs and symbols of being better than everyone else have been devalued. Everything they worked for to separate themselves and place themselves on a pedestal above the hoi polloi is being devalued as they are publicly proven over and over to be incompetent and venal, not deserving of any authority at all.

Thatcher and Trump refused to give the automatic respect many academics feel is their due. They gave the impression that they could see right through us, an uncomfortable feeling.


This elite perceived what was happening in national politics as a deadly challenge to its own status.
- Thomas Frank on why the elite hated Trump

And so the mandatory jabs are the latest expression of the obviously psychotic and desperate attempts of the elite to achieve utter obedience to their "superior wisdom". They are also a way to filter those obedient to the incompetent and venal elite from those who are not obedient so that they can be killed.

“Penn”, or U Penn, is just a little bit less prestigious than the usual Ivy League places you have heard of.
I know this because I attended a prep school and for many there the purpose of being there was to get into a fancy college. Kids compared the relative prestige and merits of them.
There was actually a guy who worked there whose job was to get us interviewed by various colleges, he was sort of a matchmaker in a way.
A little known place was considered elite, Amherst College. One of my classmates went there, another to MIT. My roommate went to Brown, but he had a special deal, he repeated a grade and spent 2 years at our school, so he was considered capable. His father must have been an alumnus and cut a deal.
The smartest kids became physicists and scientists and doctors.
The second smartest became lawyers and businessmen.
Someone must have gotten into computer stuff but I don’t know.
Interesting that some later told me that getting in was the hardest part of the Ivy League experience for them.

U.Penn is one of the original Ivy League Colleges/Universities
And the alma mater (or Alma Mammy as he called it) of Fred Waring, one of the most talented musicians of the first half of the 20th century. His dance records of the 20's and early 30's are some of the best arrangements that came out of that era, then his Glee Club occupied the rest of his career. He was also the inventor of the Waring Blendor, as he spelled it. His first interest was engineering, but in 1918 his small band, along with his brother Tom, became too popular to ignore:

Stuff that they had from Obama's actual writings show it full of misspellings and errors, written at an intermediate college level at best, kind of like a high school kid doing encyclopedia copy. The years he was supposed to be at Columbia, nobody remembers him. He was probably attending intelligence agency charm, dress and beauty school during that period, and the Columbia and Harvard Law shticks were just part of the Manchurian fix.


I think they whipped out something he allegedly edited/wrote for the Harvard Law Review as a student, but nobody remembered him there either.

Contrasted with Bill Clinton, whom everybody remembered at the time.

Attendees at other law schools and law review positons said Obama's rise to the law review didn't resemble anything they knew about the process of law reviews in general and how they function at high end law schools. Most required some pretty exhaustive bibliotec-ing skills and preferably an original piece of research. What Obama ever wrote was short and derivative at best.
The publicity stunt part of it was that Obama was some kind of grand mediator and reconciliation genius between the bitterly opposed conservative and liberal segments of the student body, which had nothing to do with the process of law review appointments. Also, it was said that Obama had some designated student who partnered with him or acted as a secretary or something, another unusual thing that they said was never previously done at Harvard. Whoever partnered with him was likely the actual brains acting as beard while Obama was for show and law review was a fake generalissimo medal, like his Nobel Peace Prize. Harvard was in on the intelligence operation scam from beginning to end.

I could believe it. Same reports from Columbia. He's repped as some big shot ace student, but almost nobody remembers him, and those that did thought him unremarkable.

The Ayers - because I believe the Father was in on it - were his lifetime handlers.

BTW, the above meme fits perfectly with most of the Ivy League people I've met.

I had a girlfriend who went to Harvard, and I remember being surprised that she absolutely hated the idea of direct democracy, because then the hoi polloi would get a direct vote over how they she was governed. Just reeked of disdain for common American people.

The stakes are apocalyptic but our political and military leadership and the blue-check geniuses on Twitter do not seem to care. Like blustering Western leaders of ages past, this group seems willing to risk it all for their “master of the universe” sense of superiority. As Anatol Lieven, senior research fellow on Russia and Europe at the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, told MSNBC in a recent, essential piece on how we might have averted this crisis, “It was the desire of Western governments not to lose face by compromising with Russia.”

I think people don’t understand the whole game the elites play and that s probably by design … the Ivy League system is part of the rigged system by the elites to show how great their children are and assure the continuity of their dynasties … it s a way for them to be like kings and queens without the responsibilities since they don’t operate in the same way … deep down the elites have a complex of inferiority and they have to cover it by imposing on us their rules by force (look at Bill Gate when he was interviewed by the DOJ for Microsoft antitrust infringement and you ll understand what I mean) … read “The hero with a thousand faces” by Joseph Campbell and it will inspire you with a better meaning of what s going on with these fake heroes … it looks like nowadays everything around us is fake

The elites are an interesting bunch; they are actually intellectually lazy. They have made a mistake to believe because they have intelligence, they don't need to gather facts before having an opinion. They actually assume that the liberals at the NYTimes tell them what they need to know.

Remember that guy Andrew Lahde (not Dr. Burry) who made a fortune shorting the housing mortgage derivatives? He closed his hedge fund making fun of the Ivy League dimwits on Wall Street.

"The low hanging fruit, i.e. idiots whose parents paid for prep school, Yale, and then the Harvard MBA, was there for the taking. These people who were (often) truly not worthy of the education they received (or supposedly received) rose to the top of companies such as AIG, Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers and all levels of our government. All of this behavior supporting the Aristocracy, only ended up making it easier for me to find people stupid enough to take the other side of my trades. God bless America."

He actually had visited California and saw who got mortgages; for example, an illegal allien who picked strawberries bought a $750,000 house.
"How will I pay it back?" Mortgage broker: "Don't worry about it."

I knew some illegal aliens in California who got mortgages; one told me she and her brother immediately defaulted when the value of the house dropped. Why not? They likely used fake names on the app, or names of dead people.

I digress. The true elites are the vast army of government employees who fear and hate guys like Trump who will scrutinize their pay, pensions, raises, budgets, and nonsense called "work".

Why is there a Federal Department of Education for example? These and others are afraid of Trump or someone like him focusing attention on them.

Exactly. It should not exist and knows it. Thus the apoplectic fits of hate for Trump.

My current working assumption is that no federal agencies should exist at all except for the military and whatever agency sets US trade policy. Defense and trade, that's all the Federal government should have.

Everything else should be left to the states, as the Constitution says.

The Federal Reserve in particular should not exist, as it isn't even part of the government, but somehow has a monopoly on the issuance of money.
31   Patrick   2022 Oct 4, 12:00pm  



Trump did make some mistakes, imho:

Choosing Pence.
Cozying up to the Saudis who murdered 3,000 Americans on 9/11
Trying to take credit for the dangerous and ineffective toxxine.
Failing to dismantle any of the Deep State.
Failing to pardon Assange and Snowden.

But he remains the most effective president any of us have seen.

Great post ! Without reading the 380 comments I'll just say that in my experience THEY WILL NOT ENGAGE. I stopped trying as I only receive blank stares and they walk away. If you send them links they do not respond with "Thanks for sharing I'll take a look." they say nothing. (Even though you are my sister, or best friend, who I was close to for 50 long years and you do have a master's in Critical & Creative Thinking...I'm not looking). What is mind blowing to me is that they have zero consideration of your research and how you came to your opinion. Rather they have outsourced their thinking to their traditionally trusted sources, NYT, NPR, etc. and those sources in my view are telling them that even considering an alternative version of the narrative puts them in the dreaded 'conspiracy nut' basket. Thinking themselves the academics (many I know are) they can't stomach the idea of the label. (Your average Joe doesn't have this fear and knows that they have been treated as 'less than' for their blue collar work, when they are the ones keeping the lights on, so they have always smelt shit from these main stream sources.) The best way in my view is not to try to have any conversation rather it is putting the truth out on T-shirts from sea to shining sea. This way everywhere they look they are seeing that their sources are not being trusted by millions. They will not lose face by having to back down in a conversation but the exposure of these alternate opinions will then will have them secretly questioning their stance. As much as they don't want to be labeled 'conspiracy theorist' they also don't want to be left behind as 'stupid' for being the last one to 'get it'.

I've been doing this for over a year now. I have several t-shirts now. The last one I bought says..."Noah was a conspiracy theorist and then it rained" on the front. I'm going to add "Are you jabbed?" on the back.

That slogan may actually be detrimental, as it can be dismissed as coming from someone with dogmatic beliefs. Better to point out current relevant facts, like "Biden, fully vaxed, fully boosted, and fully Covid positive."

What the elites are executing and succeeding at, is a slow but surely moving insurrection. And this is why it was worth it to go after Trump for the supposed insurrection, as a distraction. The printing of trillions and the Ukraine pony show is a part of this plan.

@gabbar There is a big difference between previous vaccines and this mRNA crap:

- the toxxine is new tech, no long term safety data
- short term safety data is far worse than any other vaxx ever
- the mRNA can integrate itself into your genes, and possibly the genes of offspring
- rushed through development
- rushed through testing, and testing results were bad, especially for pregnant women
- forced on the public through threat of job loss, expulsion from school and military, exclusion from public life; this has never been done before

I believe in SOME vaccines, just not this one.

It obviously doesn't work. It doesn't prevent spread, it doesn't give immunity, and it's for a disease that is RARELY fatal. Why mandate people take it?

How can somebody in health care not understand this?

No vaccines work against airborne viruses. You need mucosal immunity. You need an INHALED vaccine to get that - not a shot.

Almost. But the proper analogy is

So my line is: "I didn't believe in weapons of mass destruction in Iraq (so I didn’t support the war in Iraq), and I don't believe in a deadly supervirus from Wuhan (so I don’t support mandatory vaccination)”

Not very catchy I admit.

Maginot Line

All of the academic scholarship of the last 100 years failed to protect society from the mind virus of fascism. It was another Maginot Line that provided a very expensive illusion of safety yet it was easily circumvented when the fascists launched their blitzkrieg. One by one the heroes of the anti-corporate left pledged their allegiance to the Fascist Pharma State and support for the iatrogenocide — Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, George Lakoff, Michael Moore, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Micah White, Slavoj Žižek.

If we survive, we have to completely dismantle and restructure all of the institutions that failed over the last three years, especially education. If the system fails the moment it is tested, then it was never a good system to begin with.

Clever Pseudonym

Not only is the Trump phenomenon the most important event of our time, but now (oddly enough) it looks like Trump and his 4 years in power are only a footnote in comparison to the reaction he engendered.

Trump in his way almost qualifies as a revolutionary moment, but which has been swamped almost entirely by the counter-revolution.

Every single power center in our society, from the FBI and State Dept to the legacy news corps down to your local branch library and county clerk, were jolted into some kind of allergic response where (mostly because all our modern modes of communications work best as conduits of mass hysteria) nothing mattered except ejecting the Orange Beast of the Apocalypse.

This has meant blasting through every possible guard rail and tradition, tearing up the Bill of Rights like Pelosi tore up his speech, and nothing has been off limits: 2 spurious impeachments, the prosecution of anyone who worked for him, the social blackballing of anyone who supported him, up to and including unleashing massive riots in the hope of dislodging him.

I am not as optimistic as Martin Gurri: our Corporate Social Justice ruling class is officially post-democratic, they simply do not recognize any legitimate political opposition, and they absolutely believe that the only reason anyone opposes them (on any point) is retrograde bigotry.

They would sooner turn our entire culture into one single endless Maoist struggle session than admit any possible mistake.
