A comment I just made on ZH in response to a comment claiming that Trump is just acting like a mafioso, extreme business-mercantile approach to international relations :

No, intentionally or not, the Israeli-Neocon assholes who run Trumps foreign policy are accomplishing nothing but the destruction of US Hegemony. They are going far beyond what the US can actually accomplish, great overreach, and it will result in the international order adjusting to avoid US control.

SWIFT is being replaced. Iran is a preferred supplier of oil in China. Russia and China are trading more. China’s Belt and Road initiative is an end-run around US control of the seas. Trade policy will no longer favor other country’s so completely. NATO is no longer in either Europe’s or America’s interest, and the EU is replacing it, with big consequences for US arms manufacturers and CIA operations. NK-SK will soon send US troops home. Troops in Europe will follow in a year or so. Afghanistan must end soon, there is no longer any justification except controlling the political settlement, so big draw-downs in the ME. Etc.

Further, Pompeo’s statement that Iran’s leaders have to make the decision about whether their people want to eat is stupid, because Russia’s agriculture is growing rapidly, Brazil’s already has. Beans and corn are not just raised in the US any more. Ditto China. The world needs US food less and less. Ditto manufacturing products.

Intentionally or not, Trump is ending the US Empire. Not cleanly, not out-in-the-open, but ending it. The Israeli-CIA effort to overthrow Assad and own Syria has failed. The war in Yemen is ending. The MbS episode is behind us, that was Trump moving sales to SA out in the open, the CIA lost the illegal arms trade income.

Slowly, slowly, Trump seems to be winning here in the US, also. The situation in the House is not all bad, the Ds will continue to look stupid and do their own over-reach. The Kavanaugh nonsense, the craziness about immigrants and whites, the caravan, and RussiaGate guaranteed that 2018 was not a Blue Wave the way they hoped.

Trump won the election, many of his Republican enemies in House and Senate are gone, he is now the accepted and at least more-supported face of the RNC.

Now all Trump needs to do to own the 2020 elections is prosecute the Deep Black Swamp, a full-court press down every tendril of corruption in DC. This is a 10+ year effort, and the man or woman, I recommend selecting a woman, that Trump picks to lead that effort has a damn fine chance of being President in 2024.

As bad as the US’s economic problems are, China’s are far worse :

These guys needed Fred Dibnah, the British steeplejack  I linked to a while back, tho he didn’t deal with reinforced concrete silos like this one was. The demolition team’s structural model was wrong, they needed much more undercutting to get the entire thing to fall in the opposite direction :

At 4:29 there is a sileage silo of poured construction that is another example. The rest are very good examples of demolition of buildings. Well, except for the ones, the silos are examples, where they didn’t use enough explosives. Those fell in the wrong direction, didn’t complete falling, etc.

Note the lack of dust in those examples, versus the huge volumes of dust were created by the examples with adequate explosives.  Recall 9/11? That dust had un-exploded nanothermite grains and very large amounts of residue from military nanothermite :

I see this insanity all around me, my kid was on the ladder for a while. We describe the event as him dropping out of 7th grade, but it was really us abandoning the model.  We were widely criticized, but the kid is a solid human being who is disciplined, works hard, and knows a hell of a lot about  a lot of things, including 5 years in the world of work and people. I wouldn’t trade for their kid just graduating from CalPoly. It is enough that my kid envy that accomplishment, he can accomplish anything he decides to do.

Meanwhile, my kid is a happy and productive person with a happy and productive girlfriend. Many of their friends are definitely not, the ways to drop out or otherwise rebel are very many :

Having worked on some business projects, I think most business data, outside of basic accounting, is very poor quality, so machine learning won’t work in most companies.

Shut the system off is really the only option. The airplane obviously didn’t have duplicate sensors :

A genuine cliff-hanger :

Dad had learned to use horses for everything as a kid from his father, a horse trader and businessman in West Virginia just at the end of the horse era, sold cars after WWII. Dad had collected all the equipment, he was an auctioneer, so went to a lot of farm sales.  He said he had broken a steer to harness and had plowed a field with it, just to show he could do it. We plowed the garden with a garden tractor, but used the horses for weeding later, they could walk between narrow rows, didn’t step on plants.

This was fun. That would have been brutal work, earning a living plowing an acre a day, one man and his horse. Haying might have been worse. My relatives were very hard working people, both sides of the family, although my mother’s English-Amish side of the family thought my father’s Scottish hillbilly family were slackers :

Daily Reading #33B

One of the big advantages of living in a working-class neighborhood full of Section 8 families and households with multiple workers is my neighbors. I have been having interesting discussions with them. Today one of my black neighbors, tall bent over old man with slow speech in a deep Alabama accent and a lot of medical problems stated that he thought humans have always been viewed as farm animals by the ruling classes, and it is only the internet that is making it obvious to so many people and allowing them to share understandings. People’s opinions are much more sophisticated than reporters generally find.

This next article is the kind of thinking and writing that are brought out in hard times. It is coherent in its arguments, has substantially-true elements in the chain of reasoning,completely stupid understanding of evolution in culture and biology, and comes to the conclusion that race defines human limits, that whites are a superior culture, inherently, genetically, superior.

He doesn’t define ‘superior’ except constant references to European culture’s high points, his view of civilization’s best. OK, give him all that.  Some one race had to get to the industrial revolution first. The resources were everywhere, it turns out, so once the technical and social innovations had been invented, the industrial revolution spread. Different technological and cultural innovations, a change in climate, and presto! Mongols rule all the known world, barring western Europe, parts of India and parts of China, soon to fall also.  Africans had their own iron age, but too-tribal politics, perhaps, along with termites and tsetse flies that killed all the possible draft animals, so lower rates of exchange of goods, peoples and thoughts, so lower rates of improvement, and cultures that seemingly came and went with a single important resource.

But the peoples who invented much of it were Mediterranean and Middle Eastern people. Yes, it all came together in England, first, but the pieces originated everywhere. The fact that the Europeans have since lead all other cultures in pillaging the other lands and enslaving people when they are not genociding them with intentional disease, bombing them with poison gas or firestorms or atomic radiation-shockwave-firestorm blast,  as well as our huge leads in numbers of dead in single battles and total in single wars, are all ignored.

Those are all true facts, unadorned, you all should recognize them all. They are a part of our culture also. So, while very proud of my nation’s high points, how well we have done overall, I cannot be proud of every element of our past, only that we have overcome most of them most of the time. In the worst of times, there are nevertheless many good deeds done. And I was proud that maybe we were getting better. For a while.

I can state the advantages of multi-ethnic and multi-cultural societies. First hybrid vigor is a real thing, and most importantly in mixing the genes for immune function. The disease vs host race means offspring should be different from parents, thus all multi-cellular species tend to breed outside their local group when possible, and many have elaborate courting behaviors that display genetic health.

In a system with modern medicine, having people of mixed genetics is optimal, all will not fall ill to the same disease at the same time.

Mixing cultures is as important as mixing genes. Cultural innovation happens more frequently in multi-ethnic groups. ‘Conservative’ doesn’t mean no change, it means being careful to adopt changes locally that fit with the local situation. Of course, all change has risk, but stasis in your culture has more risk, the world around us changes continuously.

The article is a political version of the Human Biodiversity study group. I have read a good deal of their literature. It is lousy science. Genuine science is very far from connecting genes to culture. There has been more progress with the genetics of intelligence, but even there there are only a few genes whose function is known, the rest are the result of genome-wide association studies. There is no solution to the implications of the Flynn Effect wrt measuring IQ across cultures, and thus race-IQ studies await a physiological correlate of intelligence. Reaction time is the best they have currently, far from convincing.

In light of humanity’s very checkered history in ethnic relations, we better not let these people get out of control. Challenge them on their biology, their understanding of their own culture.

Don’t let them use patriotism in their argument. Every one of us is a patriot, every patriot must see room for improvement.

Race is certainly not the reason Culture A is at a high point, going down, and Cultures B-Z begin jocking for leadership and advantage on different vectors. Of course, that is the way things work, individual through family through institution in layers of classes and social stigmas and divided loves and loyalties. Those are all being thoroughly human..

That race is the cause of the current heights of civilization is a simple answer for a very complex set of questions. All of the archeology and history are not yet known, so we don’t even know all of the questions. Some of the older written languages are not deciphered.

Whatever the answer, it won’t be simple because the world is not :

Pam Bondi or Alexander Acosta for AG are very bad ideas. This article sees things as Jewish conspiracy, stupid so ignore that, but has some good facts on Epstein’s background and Acosta’s role in letting Epstein off lightly in the 40 young girls case. It covers the evidence that Trump is compromised also by Epstein’s operation and Pam Bondi’s being involved in child trafficking :

http://empireexposed.blogspot.com/2018/02/chapter-14-jeffrey-epstein-scandal.html

I think things are strange. What should have been a simple process of tracking down criminals and cleaning out Federal bureaucracies by abolishing them is taking a very long time. Trump is not what he promised, tho we can’t decide what the problem is. ‘Corralled by insiders’ is one view, much pushed by former insiders, we have indeed seen Trump pushed back from promises by pressures of some kind. ‘Compromised’ in any one of several ways, including rape of young girls, is another. ‘Just Another Baron’,  one of my thoughts, and is the view that SLL thinks applies with higher and higher probability, “Making airtight cases on solid evidence, no use of illegal wiretaps, etc’ is another. Evidence unfolds daily, the story continues, a civilizational cliff-hanger.

This is important history happening around us. Be damn sure you are on the right side here, and that is not the side of Brennan, Clapper, Comey, McCabe, Mueller, Rosenstein et al. These are absolutely not normal times, when events of this magnitude have happened to you, your nation’s foundations are under attack.

This is blatant propaganda, it makes all these guys into good people, doing the right thing. How could the CIA’s own people, lead by Cofer Black, both fund Osama Bin Laden and pursue him as a mortal enemy?  Total BS, they made him out to be the big bad enemy early as a way of enhancing his reputation and his safety, then used him as the scapegoat for 9/11. Bet he was really surprised.

These people are sincere, just like Binney, Kirikou in one of the recent links with Jason Goodman, CIA and NSA’s internal security, the Special Access Programs, keep the illegal separate from the mostly-legal, and the mostly-legal believing they are true patriots.

But our best and brightest and most patriotic can’t see through 9/11, so somethings are seriously wrong with their institutions :

A too long and discursive comment I made on ZH :

We certainly do not have a moron for President. Everyone is equally ignorant, you know? Don’t mistake the two. You can’t know what Donald Trump knows, you don’t even know how he learned them. And you can’t know what executive skills he has, except that his various properties have been in the news a lot, some very successful for many years. Adjust that by your estimate of how many of his suites were sold to people who made the investment as one of the Deep Black Swamp’s green cards for sale income streams.

So Donald Trump has some real strong points, he gives good theatre. Love him or hate him, he is the P.T. Barnum of the new age. He specializes in image, with some business sense and a willingness to take risk. He was a good friend of Richard Nixon as well as the old-guard mafia lawyer, Roy Cohn, I believe?

So he has the sons of mafia leaders as legal team and social contacts to handle the dimmer sides of the business, links into publishing and show biz all over the place, the gaming industry, wrestling, beauty contests. A lot of people on Wall Street, politicians, celebrities of all kinds want to be friends with Donald Trump, and Donald Trump is a friendly guy. Not bad for a NY builder’s son, rich as he started out.

Give him his due, Trump leveraged himself into the Presidency. It took a lot of talent to do that.

All through his campaign, he took what seemed like wild risks, and won most of the rounds with the rest of the media. As he was fighting with the supercilious bastards and female bastards we mere peons loved to hate.

As president, hysteria over the wild threats. We have seen what seemed like wild risks evaporate into the wind and produce a genuine movement toward peace in the Koreas. Maybe scaring the shit out of everyone was a good way to get the ball rolling? We must have known exactly what the NKs had, the nation’s insiders had sold the technologies and plans to them, so there was no threat if the leadership wished to live. Being desperate enough to kill all your potential rivals makes you understand about threats? And inclined to cement your power via peaceful means, peace is now in your interest. Both sides needed normalcy, and both sides should manage the process, the rest of the world butt out. Applies to the Koreas and also the Middle East. And it is happening the same way in both, somehow US diplomacy has failed to get itself included.

In both areas, US troops are being urged to depart by all sides. In Europe, the entire EU is looking to its own interests, country by country. NATO is being exposed as mostly show, the Northern operation to impress the world does not seem to have done so.

Maybe Trump does read the situation, have back channels, etc.

But, so easy to put a good story on events. Everyone does.

Is Trump a showman, or what? He sets a hell of a scene. The dueling stories continue into the era of the Clinton Crime Cabal trials and all of the associated CIA criminality that filtered into everything.

Watch Tracy Beanz’s take on Whittaker. There is hope, it seems. Every exposure raises short-term risk. There are a hell of a lot of people in government who have been read into one or more of these programs. Color of law or not, it was and is criminal activity, and people will hang for their crimes.

75,000 opioid deaths a year is genocide going on right now. The black community suffered with this for years and years, nothing significant was done, we just filled the prisons with black dudes who were recruited by CIA programs, e.g. the DEA’s informant programs. The informants were prisoners facing long sentences who were released as informants. They were made into street corner dealers, recruiting a group of kids to run the retail side, paying for their corner and the drugs. Big profits, big network, quickly. They grew proportional to the number of street corner dealers with sufficiently-long sentences.

Lots of murders, competing gangs, all encouraged by their handlers so as to distract from the drug trade itself. Or the even worse trade in children.

Now it is loose in the white community, maybe it will get some attention. Meanwhile, a hell of a lot of black women are crying for want of all those men in prison. Easy to see why they would be a bit prejudiced against whites, I almost convince myself.

This has been a very stupid system, it has ignored all of the evidence of the CIA’s drug trafficking over the years. Now a citizen’s choice is whether to submit to a mafia or not.

If Donald Trump does not win this battle and set it on a path to root out every tendril, anything goes.

Whatever happens, one very genuinely heroic person doing continuing investigative reporting in this modern age is George Webb. George is transparent as he goes after very sensitive subjects, exposes them all, one after another, using public sources and ‘meta-data’. He visits the locations of the crimes and the haunts of the criminals, principally in the DC area these days. He is exposing the people and organizations of the various schemes to steal from te public, to make money from drugs and influence and various agencies’ powers. Records are easier to get at in the modern world, and more things are important. We have a lot of people who do open source research now, the connections keep coming, there is no end of leads in this criminal conspiracy :

This is the way centralized systems die. Some power pushes elements of the total system in some direction that another power can’t life with, but it is too late to do anything about it. The CIA has been selling off American tech and bringing in foreign engineers to assist in that effort, thus depressed the wages of engineers and scientists. Of course they all became software engineers, EE design engineers, or partners at Goldman-Sachs. Of course the military is running out of US citizens to join the ranks, they have FUBARed the economy for the people who produced those babies, so they didn’t have babies. There are solid theoretical and practical reasons why you can’t manage an economy. There is no case of any entity that attempted to do that which has not crashed biggly with these same symptoms.

Add an opioid epidemic orchestrated by the same CIA, many, many Ponzi schemes unwinding, e.g. all the Pension funds, social security, medicare, and America’s decline is assured.

We will be a very different country after our rebirth. They will not be in power, and few will be wealthy, if still alive.

This makes little sense unless you understand that Epstein flies Dyncorps planes. He is a CIA-Mossad agent running compromise operations, he recruits the girls himself and makes $ from the operations, blackmail of one kind or another :

Things are strange again.  I thought Trump would use the out-going Congress to confirm a new AG, and allow that AG to handle Rosenstein, isolate him to controlling Mueller :

This is not the way to civil peace. We who don’t much like any of the parties, just leave us alone to organize our local affairs, don’t much approve of anything coming from DC, and only support Trump because there is still some chance he will be clever enough to begin to fight the Deep Black Swamp. Bad trends, most people will be in the middle. Unless the #WalkAway enlightenment spreads quickly, that could change things :

George Webb today discusses the long and deep Saudi connections of John Brennen, which makes him a key in the 9/11 planning. No wonder he has been over the top wrt Trump, who understands 9/11 and did from the beginning.

In the future, a chief of staff for every position in government will be the person who keeps track, perhaps with staff, with all of the alt-media commentators following elements of the government and individual careers. That will be government :

This is both confirmation of George Webb and an indication that the best of the CIA and NSA don’t know all the latest stuff. George is way ahead of these guys. Also, good insight into Trump’s changes, how he is controlled by the IC.

They are very dismissive of ‘conspiracy theories’, will not discuss 9/11 straight. Wow, they do NOT WANT TO BELIEVE any evidence about 9/11. So the best and the brightest bought their own propaganda, can’t step through the Overton Window.

They are very wrong in that. Nobody who looks at the evidence with a discerning mind and understanding of physics and chemistry can believe the government’s story, buildings do not fall at free fall speed and cement dust normally does NOT have explosives residue in it, nor un-exploded grains of nano-thermite. They do believe it. And Jason Goodman is a lousy expert on the subject, tho his point wrt airplanes was a good one, it is a minor point compared to free-fall speed, Building 7 and explosive residues and nano-thermite.

So at least 2 deep-inside-the-system people, Shipp didn’t seem to me so dismissive, have no clue about CIA drug, etc. operations, were completely fooled by the charade of Osama Bin Laden, etc.

Really hard to get your mind around that unless you understand that we are equally ignorant, relative to the total amount to be known, and the fact that they are clearly the best and the brightest. That produces blind spots, experts are always terrible at knowing the limits of their judgment, even when their professions should keep them humble.

MDs and intelligence people have the highest failure rates of any of the reality-based professions, we would not tolerate their failure rates in our plumber, electrician, auto mechanic, … They would not either  :
