Kuntler: Taking Liberty

Kuntler: Taking Liberty thumbnail

You can see where this has been going. The wholesale un-personing of “powerful men” in the arts, media, and politics for sex “crimes” ranging from rape to stealing a kiss communicates a hunt up the food-chain that leads to the Golden Golem of Greatness tweeting his wicked id out in his White House lair. The barely suppressed thought behind all this is that Donald Trump raped America… and now he must be found guilty of it… and pay!

The Blue women of the land must surely think that, at least, he raped Hillary in the election, and as a pure metaphor that sort of works — recall how he loomed and ranged balefully behind her back during the candidates’ debates like some cartoon thug out of a Batman movie. If he didn’t actually rape her, he sure mugged her politically, but an awful lot of voters seemed to think she deserved it, arrogant, clueless, and deeply corrupt as she appeared down the homestretch. And the sneaky way he won! Stealing a few thousand votes here and there in deplorable flyover country, while Hillary slaughtered the Golem in the places that count: the cities of the left and right seacoasts.

Now that more than a score of male celebrities have been successfully liquidated, many for “offenses” committed decades ago — and many of them actual former darlings of the Left, sacrificed for the cause — the time is ripe to go in for the kill on Trump using the same tactic of sheer finger-pointing and shrieking until… something gives.

I’m not a Trump admirer, didn’t vote for the guy (nor Hillary, either), am not invested emotionally in his political survival, but I do have a pretty firm idea of what he represents: primitive maleness in all its lumbering vulgarity. I can see why he has a certain symbolic appeal in a society that increasingly shouts “men need not apply here.”

He also represents the widespread disappointment with the poor job that the remaining men in charge of things have done in recent decades caretaking this polity. They’ve managed to dodge the repair of every broken institution and duck engagement with any of the really scary problems facing citizens of this republic, from the gross disparities of wealth, to pervasive racketeering in health care and education, to our rotting infrastructure, to the quandaries of race, immigration, climate change — you name it and they have done squat.

Men mostly in charge of the FBI are currently busy demonstrating that they can completely botch the wished-for Trump-ending investigation of Russian “meddling and collusion” — whatever that is as a legal matter — under special prosecutor Robert Mueller. The agency begins to look like the brotherhood depicted on The Sopranos TV show some years back. The congressional committees (mostly men) with oversight on the FBI (and its umbrella agency, the Department of Justice) can’t even get a few deputy Attorneys General to answer a subpoena. If ever there was a display of feckless impotence, this is it.

The desperation to get rid of Trump by the Democratic Party and its handmaidens in the media has an odor of reckless dishonesty from a faction that succumbs more and more each day to the dangerous idea that the ends justify the means. Despite the momentary jubilation over the defeat of Roy Moore in the Alabama special election for senator, the party is close to committing suicide via the collective fantasy that all romantic gambits by men are always and everywhere a prelude to rape. But then, the Republican Party ought to be on suicide watch, too, as it debates a stupendously mendacious tax reform bill that will only shove the country closer to financial meltdown.

It will be interesting to see if the Blue ladies can work their sexual inquisition hoodoo successfully on Trump. So far, he seems like the proverbial immovable object, while the Blue ladies may only be an irresistible force in show business and the media, where mere accusation without due process avails to skewer their devils. Trump’s personal history as a rake on the New York nightlife scene is a trail as wide and open as Fifth Avenue. When the parade of “me too” witnesses commences, my guess is he’ll say, “sure, twenty-three years ago I squeezed her ass and grabbed her tit. So what…?” Men in many quarters will raise their fists and cry, “Right on.” And then what will Nancy Pelosi actually do?

I suspect the hysteria won’t out-live the financial hurricane that the nation is blundering into.

    The hurricane is coming. And , hopefully, it will mean the US has to pull in it’s military to handle the chaos at home and to save money.

    I think any rational person examining Trump can easily see this guy is a massive con artist with an extensive history of borderline criminal behavior that, had he had less money, would have come home to roost long ago. Read his biographies, read about the Christian Right, research the Koch brothers (and their cohorts) and you get a clear picture of where this is headed. For those believing that no one but themselves deserves anything, it’s a great thing!

    As far as the sexual stuff, I haven’t a shred of doubt Trump is a real ass. I’ve worked with men with his personality disorders. They are not nice guys. Has the sexual screaming gotten bit crazy, yep. But I figure it and the Russian rants are great money maker for the media and a great distraction for the devastation the whole mess is doing to the government. What was an ugly future is getting uglier rapidly.

    The editor might want to check the spelling of the article headline.

    Kunstler is from week to week developing more and more closet sympathy for Trump, although he will go at great virtue signaling length that he has nothing to do with the guy.

    As if we needed more proof that the inmates are in charge …..

    White House bans CDC from using 7 words

    “In a 90-minute briefing on Thursday, policy analysts at the nation’s leading public health institute were presented with the menu of seven banned words, an analyst told the paper. On the list: “diversity,” “fetus,” “transgender,” “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “science-based” and “evidence-based.”

    I suggest they also ban the use of “air”, just in case someone wants to insist that we need it to breathe.

    They forgot COLLAPSE!

  8. Ghung on Sat, 16th Dec 2017 11:20 am 

    “They forgot COLLAPSE!”

    They’re working on it. “Deflated” was suggested, as in “deflated lung”, but it sounded too much like “deflation”. I’m sure they’ll think of something.

    Trump to set up an organisation against what JFK (closet Hitler-admirer [*]) once called “the ruthless conspiracy”:

    https://theintercept.com/2017/12/04/trump-white-house-weighing-plans-for-private-spies-to-counter-deep-state-enemies/

    People with less favorable feelings towards Trump will probably come up with the word “Gestapo”.

    World history since the beginning of the 20th century: an ongoing battle between communism (mob-led-by-revolutionary-Jews) and fascism (Europeans-with-an-attitude like Trump). The battle supposedly ended in 1945 with the victory of the Anglo-Soviets over right-wing continental Europe, but currently Russia and Eastern Europe escaped from the grip of the Ruthless Conspiracy…

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-03-23/russian-billionaire-exile-boris-berezovsky-commits-suicide

    … and the “fascist flu” threatens to to engulf Western Europe and North-America.

    The “Ruthless Conspiracy” got JFK killed in Dallas and without elections moved LBJ in the White House, who seized the opportunity to open America for immigration from the third world. In November 1963 white America died together with JFK or rather lost its country to the Ruthless Conspiracy:

    https://documents1940.wordpress.com/2017/09/27/paul-krugman-white-americans-are-losing-their-country/

    This conspiracy was as important in American history as was the theft from the American people of the Fed by the Ruthless Conspiracy in 1913.

    The third famous “Ruthless Conspiracy” conspiracy, 9/11, was merely a side show, because it failed in its objective, namely to conquer the Middle East.

    The Western European country Austria just became “Eastern European” and is the first to do so:

    http://www.dw.com/en/austrias-conservatives-and-right-wing-populists-agree-on-coalition-government/a-41818503

    Other candidates: Italy, Spain. And waiting in the wings: France and Germany.

    Decisive is the attitude towards post-Marxist Russia:

    The European establishment now feels so threatened (by the populists) that social-democrat Sigmar Gabriel said today that he wants a public discussion on the topics like “Fatherland” (Heimat) and “dominant culture” (Leitkultur):

    http://www.spiegel.de/politik/deutschland/spd-sigmar-gabriel-regt-debatte-ueber-heimat-und-leitkultur-an-a-1183536.html

    Earlier this week the battle arrived in the highest EU-circles in Brussels when the EU president and Pole Donald Tusk broke ranks in saying that Eastern Europe should not accept fake refugees.

    In related news: nobody in Germany really wants to govern with Merkel. Even der Spiegel hints that she should resign.

    The Right is winning the battle in Europe.

  11. fmr-paultard on Sat, 16th Dec 2017 12:38 pm 

    please eurotard you suggest President Trump forms a shadow government and of course funding is going through illegal means. This is just great. You also veer off in the deep end with your conspiratards. I’m a former paultard and I was deep in it too.

    I have a report to file for you eurotard. I have decided that SENTAPBs and muslims are a bunch of coward schitzos. I’ll file this next to the box labeled PMBB for you. You’re welcome. Free report from a meretard in my own time and my own expenses.

    Oh I forgot to mention… the presentation of the new Austrian government took place at the historic Kahlenberg, the very place where Christian armies defeated the Turks in 1683 and broke the siege of Vienna:

    You can’t get it more symbolic than that. History is back, the NWO has been called off in Europe.

    “Is a police state in the US possible? Absolutely…

    When social conditions reach a certain stage these really bad guys come out from under their rocks and take advantage of the situation. We’re seeing that right now in the US, across the political spectrum. Just as we’ve seen in the past in hundreds of places throughout history….

    Anybody that speaks German knows that a reasonable translation of Homeland Security is Geheime Staatspolizei, which is usually abbreviated to Gestapo….

    Is America currently a police state? Well, let’s see. You can still get in your car and go anywhere, although you might be stopped by the police and you might be detained if your papers aren’t in order. Or the officer thinks you’re not properly respectful. Or you have “too much” cash….

    It’s a case of the frog being put in a kettle of water where the temperature is gradually raised to a boil. That’s what’s occurring in the US….

    How are we any different than the Germans in the 1930s? This was one of the most civilized, best educated countries in Europe and they fell into the abyss. I suppose we’re a bit different. Americans are addicted to welfare, anti-depressant drugs, food, and electronic devices. That should certainly give us a better outcome…”

    http://www.internationalman.com//articles/doug-casey-on-what-happens-after-the-next-9-11

    “There’s a joke I like to tell. Let me ask you this: Which is the gravest danger? Is it the ignorance, or is it the apathy of the average American today? Stumped? Here’s the answer: I don’t know and I don’t care.”

    And the decline continues…

    Why Are America’s Farmers Killing Themselves in Record Numbers?
    My theory is the combination of economic distress, witnessing unsustainable practices in Agriculture and maybe poor health from exposure to pesticides could all be contributing

    New British Brexit poll:

    51% wants to remain in the EU
    41% wants to leave

    http://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/brexit-mehr-als-die-haelfte-der-briten-will-in-der-eu-bleiben-a-1183744.html

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-second-referendum-latest-poll-remain-ten-points-leave-bmg-a8114406.html

    Very few people changed their minds, it is just that the “don’t knows” have gradually formed an opinion, namely “Bremain”.

    I have the Gaullist opinion that Britain doesn’t belong in Europe, but in the Anglo world, where its true loyalties are. The most likely outcome will be a soft Brexit, where Britain remains a paying member of the common market, but for the rest packs its bags and will be excluded from political processes, so we can turn to Russia. The new populist Austrian government has already announced it will block any continuation of these damned Anglo-imposed anti-Russian sanctions.

    It won’t be long until the European Declaration of Indepence from the United States will be announced. Eurasia is more interesting than an Anglosphere that is determined to commit demographic suicide and become third world territory.

    Perhaps European America will motivate itself to an uprising from the oligarchs in Washington and in that case we will come to your aid. If not, enjoy a life of low standards and high crime.

    Ah well, Hitler was defeated, that’s all that counts. The same Hitler who between the 1920s and 1941 (Hess flight) wanted nothing more than an alliance with Britain and Chamberlain was willing.

    And then that sinister half-American Winston Churchill (WC) showed up, in the pay of certain US circles (hi George Soros!). And those circles had decided that US interests were best served with a nasty war in Europe in which the US would eventually intervene and decide… to their advantage.

    Thank God that Marxist Anglo-episode in European history is almost over. I think I’m going to buy me a silk hat and pick up cigar smoking and prepare myself for a European 19th century 2.0.

    The bottom line that Kunstler kind of touches on is that “primitive maleness” is nature, it’s normal and it’s why a young man would go into massive debt to go to the best college, study long and hard and work his butt off to be an alpha male. It’s why he buys the expensive car, the nice suit and does whatever it takes to impress the female of the species. What men just as women intend to do is become and attract the most attractive breeding partner possible. When you take this genetic drive and call it all criminal I think your going to get some results that will not serve our species well.

    Now how do you contain this with a sense of decorum in a civil society without neutering manhood? I think you see the outcome in studies that show testosterone levels in certain classes of society falling off a cliff along with birth rates while other classes are boning like wild animals with note a care in the world if the genetic code of either partner makes then a good provider. Idiocracy is here and it’s not fiction.

    French have a little enough of this Brexit circus, tells British there will not be a “special relationship”. Choose you model, either Norway or Canada.

    Norway means: accept all the EU market rules and have full EU market access or be like Canada with less rules but also with less privileges.

    Pick and choose.
