@Starrynight

Same back at you! Privilege to know you. Thank you for keeping me honest. It is so true that engaging with different points of view sharpens and clarifies one's own thinking. That openness to challenging is, indeed, what separates the honest from the dishonest, the independent from the herd-think, media-massaged masses.

I agree that this forum is a unique place, and for me, uniquely valuable. Karl and the community here help keep me sane in this time we're in! Plus, the information, advice and links shared by Karl and others here have been lifesavers for me -- in a couple of areas, probably quite literally.

As to your daughter... my heart breaks for the limiting of her opportunities. Believe me, I sympathize. My just-out-of-college son has been deprived of so much in the last two years, it is incalculable. The world he faces is so different from the world that opened itself to me like an oyster when I was his age. He is often depressed, for he sees what's coming, and inflation is rapidly eating up every little gain he makes. I encourage him as best I can, and try, as wisely and subtly as I am able, to cheer him up and cheer him on. It's unfair that he does not have the things I did, such as the freedom to travel overseas. The Evil Ones have WRECKED the world in fundamental ways, and I can't put Humpty Dumpty back together again. As a parent, I feel grief, outrage and even guilt.

But when you look at the long sweep of human history, there have ALWAYS been hard times, there have always been eras when parents saw things falling apart around their children. The Bible is, among other things, a history book. The Book of Lamentations is sobering. It puts things in perspective; at least we are not to THAT point yet!

Our one job as parents is the same as it has ever been -- to help our kids get to heaven. And to equip them as best we can for the world that they currently face, not the one we grew up with. I am finding this quite challenging. I will pray for you and your family!

On balance, I have never really liked Wolf's stuff, but that has changed over time, where her current stuff is generally very good. I think she now gets it.

As to the question above, that is a guaranteed thread derailer. The short version is:

That is going to need its own thread in THE BAR or preferably TINFOIL.

@Burya_rubenstein - that's a good question, I don't know their policy (if they have one) but I expect they are at least OK with the unjabbed. They may very well not be jabbed themselves, I don't know for sure. But to my knowledge, they don't require or recommend jabs to attend the school.

Beware unless you ask and get it in WRITING before you commit to a single nickel of expense or effort. SEVERAL private educational institutions I'm aware of, all boarding, DID AND DO require jabs.

@Heartlander - thank you for your prayers, I am grateful. I pray for you and your family, also.

It is hard to make sense of the times we are living in. And I have an advanced degree in the social sciences! The more the curtain is pulled back (by people like Karl), the more I sense that I do not know or understand. It's like looking at just one corner of a big puzzle, with many pieces missing, and the rest of the puzzle is covered. It is tempting to think "oh, I understand how the world works: everything is happening because of x, y, and z!" But I think this is a temptation to try to feel somewhat in control, when in reality there's so much we don't know.

Above all, I sense that there is a spiritual dimension to the way things are going. But again, I do not fully understand it. It just feels like darkness is creeping over the land. Like in Lord of the Rings. Evil is ascendant. Not that there hasn't always been evil, and lots of it. But in these times, it seems like so many people are getting detached from reality itself, and basic standards of decency are being trashed.

On one hand, there's nothing new under the sun. Always wars, rumors of wars, pestilence, plague, famine, death. Corruption, deceit, betrayal... And yet, we now live in a time of unprecedented technologies that are changing so much.

My second daughter, age 13, yesterday asked to start an Instagram account. She asked why I'm opposed to it. I explained that these tech companies want your life. You exchange your life (data about your movements, purchases, contacts, communications, shopping lists, likes and dislikes, videos watched, photos taken, etc.) for a fun/useful app like sharing photos with friends. "But what does it matter if I just put up photos of my dog?" I explained that they will have a record of all this data that they will never delete. You are giving all this personal data to a big company, and therefore also the government. At age 13, maybe you are only uploading dog pictures, but that is the start of their massive archive of your life.

I am happy that Facebook does not have a record of my life since I was 13! They would know me better than myself. Today is June 3, 2022. Do you remember what you were doing on June 3, 2021? I don't. But if I had a smartphone with all the popular apps, Facebook/Google/Twitter etc. would all know exactly what I did on that day: where I went and when, who I texted/emailed, the contents of those communications, my purchases of that day, etc. All of that is none of their business! I refuse to exchange my life for a "free" app that will track all my doings and then use that against me (in the form of advertising, "curating" news feeds, predicting behavior, even trying to influence my vote, etc.)

Am I getting into tin territory here? Anyway, my point was how hard it is to make sense of our times, to read the signs of the times, to know how to react. If I were a frog and realized the water was getting hot, I think I would jump out. But what does that mean in real life, to "jump out"? Seeing that things are getting bad, and the trends are not good -- what to do about it?

Maybe people felt similarly towards the end of the Roman Empire, too.

By the way, the point I was trying to make about smartphones and Instagram was that this new technology enables a new kind of totalitarian monitoring and control that the Stasi and KGB could only dream of. "How can we get the population to voluntarily carry around a device that can record their every movement, communication, and purchase?" The KGB couldn't think how, it took Steve Jobs to figure it out and make it happen.

a lot of broke women once all the BS diversity jobs go away


Sigh. I wish, but the government has mandated corporate diversity. And the "drive for diversity" really means "the drive to put white women in white collar management roles."

Corporations don't want to piss of the government, so when it's time for cuts, they'll cut all the men plugging away in the office cubicles, and keep all the women in the useless middle-management roles.

The worst offenders are the companies that are most supported by the government (health insurance, defense, etc). Cut the diversity mandates in those industries, and the streets will be overrun with a bunch of white women in their 20s - 40s, with liberal arts degrees, no-name MBAs, and precious little skills beyond sending e-mails to each other.

Only then will you see a bunch of broke women in the streets.

@Txwindow I was thinking "Caliphate" as well, but I don't think it'll be limited to Europe, could be coming to a lot more places than we want. Also a decent chance of Ringo's "Under a Graveyard Sky" if we continue dicking around with every pathogen we get our hands on, and I'm not sure if we'll have a seed group to keep the candle lit if that happens.

All you guys worried about a food crisis or starvation, Klaus Schwab over at the WEF has your back! NO WAY will the world starve, these elites have it all worked out!

In order to reduce our carbon footprint, we have been told to eat seaweed, algae, and cactus. You know - instead of beef and potatoes! We can supplement with weeds and insects. Sewage water is the preferred beverage!

I wish this were just a humorous post. It is not. These "foods" were on the list as having a reversal effect on climate change. Oh - their menu at the Davos meeting? Don't ask; nobody knows. But surer than hell it wasn't algae, weeds, or insects!

It seems that small dams are breaking. my husband has witnessed more than one screaming match in parking lots over a parking space. People are brusque when leaving through a door, not holding it open or seeming surprised when I say thank you. Little things, but the cracks are starting to show.
We are staying on the opposite side of the same county our house was in. Where I used to live, I might have seen 1 cop car a day? Over here, damn, it's like a convention. Driving down 1 road, less than a 10 miles stretch, I saw 3 cop cars pulled over, with a single driver, emptying his pockets, etc. As I was passing, 2 more car were coming up behind me, no lights and didn't stare to see where they were headed. Later on, on the bridge over a major expressway, 4 cops had blocked in 1 car blocking the turn lane onto the interstate.
Maybe crime is just much higher over on this side of a massive urban county, but it seems that things are fraying around the edges.

I REALLY don't want to be here when stuff starts to seriously unravel.

Chromehill wrote..
A few months ago I spent a weekend in upstate New York along the Canadian border. I was in Canton and Potsdam, NY ... there are two very expensive colleges in that area (St Lawrence University and Clarkson University

Back in the day, I graduated from Clarkson College (before they got uppity and became a University). Class of 1983. It is a very good engineering school. They taught students how to think back then. Couldn't say about now. St. Lawrence U is a liberal arts school. There is also a state university in Potsdam, SUNY Potsdam, also liberal arts. FWIW, I grew up in upstate NY, about 30 miles east of Cooperstown.

Chromehill is 200% right, there is almost NOTHING to do in that area that does not involve driving 2 or 3 hours to a city. It is literally the poorest part of the State of NY. Good people in the area, but the state is run by uber liberals like the Cuomos, who are elected by the folks in the big cities (NYC, Albany, Syracuse, Buffalo).

In the winter, it can get very cold, like into the -30s F. If your daughter likes camping, there is plenty to be had in the Adirondack mountains, when it's warm enough. But those area are very much off the beaten track. You might have to drive 20 miles to reach civilization. And in the summer, the black flies will eat you alive out in the woods.

Even if you can get the written guarantee from a school, there is nothing you can do about any diktats issued by the State Government. NY will be among the early adopters of masking, more vaxxing, etc., the next time TPTB decide to turn the dial up again.

I'd agree with Heartlander's take, having a loved one on the opposite side of an ocean during the next plandemic is probably not an optimal way to go, especially if they are located in a liberally controlled polity.

I hope you can find some path forward that satisfies your families' needs.

@Kwwilson, I have no idea if this is tin. I don't believe it is, but the tin forum was the only place Taiwan had been discussed (last year). Anyway, the short version is that the Party sent instructions to China's five military zones back in March (the same time Xi prohibited foreign investment by Party officials), and a May 14 status meeting from one of those zones about their progress and state of readiness was leaked. Quite a few specific dates and timeframes in there, all near-term (or passed).

Transcript of the 1 hour meeting:

Commentary by the lady who translated it (30 min, I had to use close captioning):

@Workerbee23 - In the last couple of months, I have seen police dealing with what appeared to be conflicts around our local grocery store. One of them involved a man two cops had pinned to the ground, screaming threats to kill his wife (?) and kids who were standing nearby. This is in a small village setting. Never saw cops dealing with such issues in public before around our little grocery store. Just an anecdote, of course.

@Tonythetiger - thanks for the info. What you said makes a lot of sense. I talked with my wife who agreed having our young daughter on another continent in a liberal-controlled state is not such a good idea. We live in a time of such unpredictability and volatility. I think 20 years ago, it would have been a realistic dream that she might go as an exchange student to NY state. But now, I agree with you -- what if the gov shuts all schools, or requires vaxxes, or closes the state border, and I can't go and get her? Doesn't feel right to me, as a dad. Call it my paternal instinct.

Thank you. Lots to digest, and I expect I will find it nauseating.
It really makes me wonder what the Canadian response would be, given the depth of Chinese tentacles into our leadership. Do we follow their instructions, or the western MIC?

ManFm11:

Their IQs are well above 95 but why define stupid so narrowly?

To me, hubris is a subset of stupidity. They are highly intelligent, highly educated, and full of hubris and greed for money and power. They not only believe they have the right to make decisions that are catastrophic for some, they believe it is their responsibility. But at least some of what is unfolding are the typical unintended consequences of failed leadership (by all parties, and by those of us who still give consent for their governance)

Present day USA has almost nothing in common with Russia and China of 100 years ago. They were mostly comprised of peasant "farmers." They had minimal life expectancy and no expectations. They were constantly faced with food scarcity, among many hardships. They were rural, born in their shacks, and most never traveled more than 10 miles from their place of birth. They were unarmed and had no means of communication with others, let alone a constant window into what the rest of the world had and did.

And what was the result of their loss?

No contrast that to the collapse of the biggest economy on the planet.

The bottom line is to continue to aquire wealth and power, the RC need a stable lower and middle class. That is on whose back they stand, and without whom, they are relegated to either running and hiding, or the guest of honor for dinner. That's why they are trying, yet again, for our guns.

It makes perfect sense to me that people are cracking. The whole global Covid psy-op was deliberately intended to break human beings -- and I mean break in the sense of what happens to a beautiful porcelain figurine when you throw it violently onto a concrete floor. BREAK. Into pieces.

My working theory is that in a time when less and less of the things around us make any logical sense that we could figure out with our rational powers of reason, our inborn, God-given instincts become more important than ever. Guided and informed by prayer, of course. (Even if, in desperate, every-second-counts situations, it's just the quickest breath of acknowledgment of God.

From 12 Axioms https://theunclejohnsband.blogspot.com/2....

Beast narrative draws on assumptions based on a socio-cultural context that no longer exists. Referencing relations and conclusions from then and pretending they are applicable now. If you approach new scenarios with old thought patterns you are unaware of new threats and dangers.

Boomers are particularly susceptible to this because their world view is so simplistic and heavily imprinted, but its not limited to them. It applies to the entire West. Nothing about the current legal, political, economic, educational, demographic, moral, or cultural nature is the same as it was 40 years ago... keeping the word the reference while changing the reality fools those trapped in fake narratives...

Cut to the chase. If society is legally, politically, economically, educationally, demographically, morally, and culturally degraded from even a few decades ago, old observations dont apply. At least not directly. Take Russia. Trying to see things through a lens of 1980s socio-cultural assumptions is not just retarded, it provides cover to the entities that are actively destroying our countries and culture. The Cold War West image of the West and the world fits contemporary globalism about as well as the 100 Years War. Less well, because its actually a full inversion of the Cold War narrative. Theres still a godless, amorphous, soulless tyranny attempting to crush national and personal self-determination. Except now its the globalist beast based in the US and Europe but aspiring to world hegemony.
