Inquisition 2024

Don Jr., yes. Ivanka, absolutely, unquestionably no.
In a SurveyMonkey poll for Axios, Republican voters chose children of President Trump — Don Jr. and Ivanka — as two of the top four picks for president in four years.

Why it matters: An early poll like this is largely a measure of name ID. But it's also a vivid illustration of just how strong Trump's brand is with the GOP.

Ivanka and Don Jr. find themselves near the top of a long list of politicians who have held elected office, many of them vocal supporters of the president.

The big picture: Don Jr. has emerged as one of the most prominent defenders of his dad, frequently going after the left on Twitter, where he has 4.2 million followers, and serving as a popular warm-up act for presidential rallies. His book — "Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us," released in November — reached No. 1 on the N.Y. Times nonfiction bestseller list. In October, at a rally in San Antonio for president Trump's re-election, the crowd chanted "2024!" as Don Jr. spoke.
Before we get too excited about the god-emperor-in-waiting, let's focus on seeing the god-emperor himself reelected in 2020. Those who weirdly - and suspiciously - have questioned whether I have lost faith in President Trump simply because I am capable of pointing out the entirely obvious in the aftermath of the supposed Soleimani assassination are simply not paying attention to my comments on it. I will do a Darkstream on the subject tonight after the Vikings game.

I don't know what is actually going on. Nor does anyone else, however much they might like to pretend that they do. But I would still rather have the god-emperor in the White House right now than any U.S. politician or world leader not named Duterte. Then again, the thought of what Duterte could do with the U.S. military at his disposal is terrifying.

On the one hand, the opioid crisis would definitely be over and the Devil Mouse would no longer exist. On the other, we might find ourselves maintaining a military occupation of California while caught up in a massive war with the Elder Ones in Antarctica.

Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson made what should be an obvious point and needs to be addressed by every current and would-be U.S. leader:
Before we enter into a single new war, there’s a criterion that ought to be met. Our leaders should explain to us how that conflict will make the United States richer and more secure. There are an awful lot of bad people in this world. We can’t kill them all. It’s not our job. Instead, our government exists to defend and promote the interests of American citizens. Period. That’s why we have a government. So, how has the killing of Soleimani done that? Maybe. No one in Washington has explained how.

I’m looking forward to your take on the current crisis in the ME after the Saints beat the Vikings (life long Saints’ fan)! I am extremely disappointed in what has been happening in that hell hole but you’re right, Trump, whether we like it or not, is our best option.

You say that as if it were a bad thing.

I don't know that Salami man was directing Quds attacks with IEDs against US troops in 2003 but it makes sense that he would have been. He's Shiite, the Sunni had run Iraq and Iran probably figured the US would follow the pattern the Brits set and put the Sunnis right back in power.

Whether for that reason or some other I know nothing about it seems to me he was a legitimate target. Blowing him away with a Hellfire when he's in Iraq at the invitation of the Iraqi government, though, doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

Israel has said he was their number one target. The Saudis consider him their number one target or close to it. It seems to me blowing him away somewhere out on the Iraq/Syria border where it would be tough to tell whether it was the US, Israel, or someone the Saudis paid, who took him out would have been a better approach.

Of course, if the US had covert operators who could have arranged for him to have a heart attack or stroke at some hotdog stand in Baghdad it would have been even better. Given the demand for suicides and political manipulations within the US, though, I guess that's too much trade craft to expect for the hundred billion or so we spend for spooks and peeping toms every year.

People don't do nuance very well. As you often point out, binary thinking is the norm.

It's really quite annoying the way those in the dissident right who have turned on Trump of late will inevitably put out their disclaimer that they "still don't like Blumpf" before saying anything positive at all. They have to do their own “virtue” signaling to their fans or they’ll get torn to pieces for it. It’s pathetic. They really are like scorned women.

I think this is very simple, perhaps overly so: the past approach to ME policy didn't work. So, do the opposite. America has been avoiding taking out Samalamadingdong for fifteen years, so take him out. Do it publicly and openly to get the Iraqis to tell us to leave, then leave. In one act you have demonstrated a stronger American resolve while also reducing American commitments. Iran gets a little extra political breathing room out of the deal as the US is no longer using one of its neighbors as a military base, but they also know that future ankle biting will earn them another strike to the neck.

And if anyone mentions something about a Pottery Barn rule, kick them in the dick.

I was 14 when the US embassy in Tehran was invaded and the staff taken hostage.

Everyone was wondering why Carter wouldn’t do anything. Then it turned into a 444 day humiliation counted down nightly by Ted Koppel.

Iran is still run by the same regime. They couldn’t have stayed in power without help from traitors in America. Obama gave them a lifeline right when they were most vulnerable to overthrow by their own people.

Anyone (American or Kenyan) aiding this regime in any way needs to hang.

I don’t like being on the same side as the neocons—ever—but once it is clear that there won’t be a ground invasion of Iran, that’ll end too.

Neon Revolt showed the New York times of 2 Jan 19 clearly forewarning Solomani about a strike in an article about Hypersonic missiles. He was killed on Jan 4. They referred to him by name and talked about knowing his whereabouts in Baghdad.

So I'm tending to a conclusion Solomani was somehow a deep state asset. That doesn't mean I support the assassination. White people shouldn't lift a finger for Israel given what they've done like 9/11. But that suggests sth was off about Quasem. No war against Iran, get kicked out of Iraq which is very good. Let Israel who clearly directed the strike take the consequences.

The Elder ones in Antarctica. Well off I go.

Impossible to tell if the killing was good or bad, but hopefully it will be like the attack he launched on Syria: a hanukkah present for the neo cons to show his loyalty to them, but not the full invasion they want.

Blogger Bodo Staron January 05, 2020 7:45 AM  

On January 3rd Trump tweeted:
Iran never won a war, but never lost a negotiation!

Take this into account:

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/qassem-soleimani-iran-general-quds-force-commander-killed-us-airstrike-2020-01-03/

In a 2010 speech, Gen. Petraeus recounted a message from Soleimani he said explained the scope of Iranian's powers.

"He said, 'Gen. Petreaus, you should know that I, Qassem Soleimani, control the policy for Iran with respect to Iraq, Lebanon, Gaza and Afghanistan,'" Petraeus said.

Who knows, maybe it's a Trump way to open the door for serious talks? Soleimani too powerful and in the way for different relationship with the US?

I simply see the killing of Soleimani as solving several problems and inadvertently solving more.
1. We had opportunity to kill him in past but didn’t do it.
2. He was likely reason for recent violence at our embassies.
3. If not, then he is collateral damage. And killing is a warning.
4. His killing was long overdue for killing Americans.
5. Our Cold War with Iran got hot. It just doesn’t cool itself.
6. Democrats are showing their true colors again. It’s okay to kill Bin Laden, but not this.
7. Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Democrats can’t be trusted with intelligence. Funny that Trump sent them status as Classified data. He dared them to leak it. Heck, there’s already leaks about the run up to the killing.

And Franz, it is like asking if angels are good or bad, it is a matter of which set. Some angels follow Gods intentions, some are in rebellion to them.

As you often point out, binary thinking is the norm.

And that goes double for anything involving Trump. The NeverTrumpers are still out there, with the help of the media, pushing the idea that every Trump supporter is one poor decision or one scandalous headline anyway from having his eyes opened and turning against the president. It doesn't work that way with any other politician or leader; support waxes and wanes on a range as things happen. But with Trump it goes back to their 2015/6 claims that he was entirely fake and would be exposed any day now, to which they still cling despite over three years of being proven wrong.

People who hope for or fear President Ivanka are either paranoid alt-retards or just regular retards. Her daddy gave her a busy-work job of speaking to gatherings of career women who would never show up and admit they want him, and she's done that job fine. But that's where her support ends, with the "It's time for a wahmen president" crowd. She loses in the poll to Nikki Haley, who half the respondents probably thought was a pop singer.

Blogger tublecane January 05, 2020 9:39 AM  

"what should be an obvious point"

Yes. "What's in it for us?" is a strategic question, inseparable from narrower political and military concerns. Which politicians and military commanders both routinely ignore. Or rather the latter studiously pretend to ignore because it's supposed to be the responsibility of politicians.

WWII, still the basis of ruling world order (or slipping world order), featured us famously "losing the peace." But that's a ridiculous way to put it, because war is about the peace that (hopefully) comes afterwards. This is true even when you think you have no choice, and it's fight or be eliminated. Because you can choose elimination.

Russia winning the peace was a result of Soviet long-term thinking and on our part either a lack of strategic thinking (Churchill) or deliberate lying in favor of a secret plan (Roosevelt?). Then as now, intelligent and responsible strategists would ask: "What are American national interests in Europe and Asia?" "What's in it for us?" "Who are out real allies, and who temporary?" "What do we do to get what we want most efficiently?"

There is a faction with outsized power inside our nation with a clear plan to eliminate the enemies and potential enemies of a faction of Middle Easterners. Probably global government as well. They have wanted since 9/11 (and beforehand, but out loud after that date) a grand sweep of the powerful Islamic states that aren't Saudi Arabia, Arab Spring-esque. Except an Arab Spring under our control.

Around the time Iraq fell, I remember neocons and normiecons talking incessantly about the imminent fall of Iran. "Students are grumpy, only a matter of time." Somehow that didn't happen.

Now we're talking about taking the Ayatollah down. It never goes the other way. We don't suddenly turn on the Kingdom. When emergencies happen, war hysteria goes against the guys we've been bitching about for decades.

But why would Israel support Saudi-Arabia and its Wahabbi / Sunni ISIS, in their low-level war against Iran / Persia / the Shiites in general?

And why couldn't Trump simply switch sides and support Iran / Russia against Saudi-Arabia / ISIS? In Tucker's train of thought, can Saudi-Arabia / ISIS / Israel bring any benefit to Americans, at all? Either now, or in some nebulous future?

Perhaps that is what the god emperor wanted, a rationale to remove some troops from the Middle East.

Blogger Gastguma January 05, 2020 10:25 AM  

Saying there will be war in the Middle East is like saying the sun will rise, but I don't think this event will lead to open war right now for the simple reason that neither Trump nor Iran wants it.

Iran's regime wants to expand its control and influence and reduce America's, but they also want to stay in power and an open war with the U.S. would guarantee their destruction. It would be bad for the U.S., but it would be devastating for Iran's regime. Now, Russia and China factor in as well, but they have different plans that don't involve outright war.

Trump has been criticizing the Middle Eastern policy long before he became president, so he knows that open war with Iran is bad. But the most important indicator is that people have been claiming Trump is going to start a war since his Presidency began and yet he never has. Trump got aggressive with N. Korea, and it was going to be WW3. Didn't happen. Trump got aggressive in Syria, and it was supposed to lead to massive military expansion there. Didn't happen. And now it's the same routine. The problem is that we are used to events like this being used as opportunities for outright wars by the old U.S. regime, but Trump is not part of that regime. His style, as proven from past actions, is to make a very strong, aggressive move as a warning and then back off. This was to retaliate for past actions by a specific individual and particularly for the attack on the U.S. embassy, which he supposedly coordinated. Embassies have nothing to do with U.S. military interventionism, but with diplomacy, so this was a step too far. Was he really behind it? I can't know from where I stand, but what I do know is that those who claim that Trump will start a war have been consistently proven wrong in the past. I also know that the enemy wants us to be demoralized. I could be wrong, but for these two reasons, I'm willing to bet that it will turn out okay in the near future.

Regarding my last few comments.

Observing myself, I find it interesting to note how I have moved on from when I was a PhD candidate more than 20 years ago. Having easily been emotionally manipulated by the MSM including (((New York Times))), oh, those poor Muslims in Bosnia being slaughtered by these evil National Socialist / orthodox Serbians. And how I too egged on the (at first very) timid Bill Clinton to "do something". My excitement when the NATO airstrikes happened - with support of German Luftwaffe / Deutsche Bundeswehr.

And now I fundamentally oppose these senseless wars, this adventurous interventionism, including and in particular this recent wrong USA airstrike. And I'm questioning "whose side" our Western governments are on. When so blindingly obviously in the Saudi-Arabian war on Iran, the Saudi Kingdom are NOT the good guys. But the West under USA hegemony (who herself is under Jewish + Israeli influence) supports Saudi-Arabia unquestioningly.

Obviously in the case of the German government under Merkel, I've already found my answer. They're not on the side of the German people - that's for sure.

And how I moved on from a mix of (not entirely consistent) German patriot together with cosmopolitan globalist admixture (oh just think of the opportunities for the economy!) to a stark and straight nationalist -- precisely to become an omni-nationalist, a very useful Voxian neologism.

Blogger Hammerli 280 January 05, 2020 10:39 AM  

@32: Agree 100%. Iran has been waging low-level warfare against the United States for 40 years. This is merely the latest incident.

@43: Apparently, the Iraqi legislature has just voted to expel American forces. This has some interesting implications. Notably:

a. Does this affect Embassy security? I could easily see the Iraqis doing a sham expulsion...but allowing the U.S. to keep Embassy security forces.

b. If the answer to (a) is YES, do we close the Embassy? I certainly would. Deny any possible hostage crisis.

c. Does this imply that Iraq is now an Iranian puppet state? Or are they merely trying to stay out of a long-standing fight?

Pro Tip: I suspect that if this goes kinetic, it'll get VERY kinetic. Mostly against military targets.

The Iraqi parliament has voted for removal of all US troops from the country. The thought has occurred to me that maybe this is just the outcome that Trump wants.

However, with the Iraqis themselves now officially demanding that we remove our troops, the neo-cons no longer have the force of argument in their favor.

"Another good rule to follow before starting a new war: Finish the other ones you are still stuck in!"

Both Hitler's and Tojo's big mistakes.

"But why would Israel support Saudi-Arabia and its Wahabbi / Sunni ISIS, in their low-level war against Iran / Persia / the Shiites in general? "

I have a secret for you:

(((House of Saud))).

Does that clarify matters for you now?

And if you doubt me, just look at how the members of the Saudi royal family behave while in Europe or the U.S. They sure as hell are NOT Moslems themselves, let alone Wahabbi Moslems. They made AN AGREEMENT with the Wahabbi clerics that the clerics will support the House of Saud as long as the House of Saud doesn't interfere with the Wahabbi clerics. And vice versa. No such agreement would have been needed if the House of Saud is actually Moslem, as it would be a one-sided deal (Why would actual Sunni Moslems living in a Sunni land interfere with the Wahabbi clerics? They wouldn't, of course. Conclusion: the House of Saud is not Moslem. But they do what they need to do to "pass" while in public inside the country.)

Also explains the crypto-alliance between Isreal and Saudi Arabia.

"For example, Don Jr is opposed to censorship by Big Tech. Don Jr as president would do more about the issue than his father."

Don Jr., being Gen-X, would have no problems with a scorched-earth policy for those who are abusing the public trust and constantly trying to dancer between "publisher" and DMCA "safe harbor" status. "Let it burn" indeed.

@53

"a. Does this affect Embassy security? I could easily see the Iraqis doing a sham expulsion...but allowing the U.S. to keep Embassy security forces."

Host nation doesn't get a say in that. All embassy personnel, including the USMC security force are issued diplomatic (red) passports. If they declare a particular Marine persona non-grata, the USMC will just swap in another Marine to take his place. By helicopter with fighter escort, if need be.

Perhaps the GEOTUS is anticipating an Iraqi request for out military to leave the country. Well OK then. Good luck.

Apply Vox's methods. Begin with: the official story is a lie.

The official story is that the continent is worthless and empty, except for a few scientific stations.

Assume then that it is neither worthless nor empty.

Worthless? Antarctica is a continent. It doubtless has a continent's worth of minerals - oil, coal, metals and so on. The Elites want to depopulate the planet and destroy our industry, so it makes sense they would NOT want us to get access to any of that.

Empty? The Elites want to depopulate the planet. There is a very real chance that they have some hiding holes there, for just in case.

As for Lovecraftian Elder Gods, it is very possible that there are things down there that would destroy elements of the Narrative. For example, there might be fossil records which would unarguably establish the Young Earth theory as detailed in Genesis. Who would know if that were so? The prince of this world might well know.

You chuckle thinking you're hiding away down the bottom of the earth, then you find out your home is the last stopover before Antarctica, and THEN you find out, a lot of very city looking folk, in fancy pants and dress shoes, from other countries are at the airport on the way there. Still laughing but only because there's nothing else to do.

It's not too hard to visit (if you have cash to burn), there's lots of cool wildlife to see and an amazing hollow volcano at sea level called deception Island. It looks like a big solid volcano from the ocean but it's actually naturally wind eaten out on the inside with walls like a giant sloped scoria sound shell, not sure if they use that word overseas, in other words, it's lined with slippery volcanic gravel rock and is the perfect shape to hold a music festival with the band on a boat in the central lake. You can take a large boat in through a hidden opening (it's hard to see openings in the rock faces when channels go in on an angle), the water inside is a giant spa and people certainly swim in it and in just togs, possibly less. Not technically a lake, must be a tidal lake due to the entrance being at sea level, not sure what that's called.

I'd like to go have a dip in that hot pool, because I love the water but am not a fan of the cold, and maybe see some plants and birds. However, I know I'd really only go there for the chance to go awol and start snooping around the place and probably get iced. Best to stay here, not ready to die yet.

That’s why we have a government. So, how has the killing of Soleimani done that?

Isn't it the idea that if a foreign power attacks Americans abroad, and our embassy in particular, the U.S. government smashes something proportionally painful, e.g. one of the crapulent aristos partially responsible for the harm, pour encourager les autres?

This is one of the few U.S. military adventures that does make sense.

On the heels of all of our other wrongheaded* adventures and entanglements abroad, it's risky. But that is a different question.

Having no reputation to protect and not being dependent on employers, I can throw a few stones in the glass house.

Antarctica is a very interesting place historically:

A seemingly ancient map that shows the continent without ice.

The original Nazi interest in the place.

U.S. Operation Highjump, the alleged confrontation, and Admiral Byrd's comments, the censoring, and missing diaries and entries.

The report by the Rescue Medical team of the giant hole and its associated no-fly zone. The Special Forces off-the-record report of a facility, an ancient facility.

The almost 70 year rumors of the "Antarcticans". And at least one high government official that basically states that a bunch of ancient and not all aliens are here on Earth, namely Antarcticans, Atlanteans, Greys, Tall Whites and Reptilians. Reptilians, Atlanteans are allegedly home-grown.

The fact that high-energy cosmic rays and other "exotic particles" are coming up from the Antarctic surface to detectors. Given the acceleration requirements, scientists calling this "natural" are insulting our intelligence...

A man I met, Buzz Aldrin, in perfect health, has to travel to Antarctica to have a heart attack... what did he see there at that gathering of dignitaries -- cover was a tour (uh huh)... which incidentally including a Vatican representative...

And then, there is that interesting island in the South Atlantic, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bouvet_Island, except it is NOT the natural reserve it is claimed. It's proximity to Antarctica... It bristles with massive telecom equipment and military presence...

YMMV

Anything that I say is subject to relentless examination and highly-critical analysis, so I no longer express an opinion on anything I cannot substantiate to my satisfaction.

I've noticed this, and it is very unfortunate. I would pay to have the blog be what it once was.

How is the traditionalist Godfearing perspective at this point able to ignore the seeming need for a reimposing of the Divine Hierarchy. With how badly democracy is going, Christian traditional monarchy is looking more preferable.

I rarely share my story with people, not only because it put me at the lowest point ever but because it made me a person of ridicule among family and friends. I put all I had into Binary Options ($690,000) after hearing great testimonies about this new investment

 strategy. I was made to believe my investment would triple, it started good and I got returns (not up to what I had invested). Gathered more and involved a couple family members, but I didn't know I was setting myself up for the kill, in less than no time all we had put ($820,000) was gone. It almost seem I had set them up, they came at me strong and hard. After searching and looking for how to make those scums pay back, I got introduced to maryshea03@gmail.com to WhatsApp her +15623847738.who helped recover about 80% of my lost funds within a month.

Hello friends,
I'm a little ashamed to tell such a story. But I would like to share with you a great resource. I've had problems since my sexual organ was too small. I've been worried about this and tried to rectify the situation by means of pumps and tablets. Because of the tablets, which I ordered, I had complications and I was in the hospital for some time after that I gave up trying to increase my penis. But once I found Dr adam herbal cream. My first result was: plus 3 centimeters after 2weeks of usage. If you want to know more details and how you can enlarge your penis bigger, I recommend you to contact Dr adam today, email address adamokpoko@gmail.com or add him on whatsapp line +2348151731392.
