Married Catholic Priests ???

According to this report, the Pope soon may allow priests to get married:

In the 50s and 60s, my family belonged to a Ruthenian-rite Byzantine Catholic church which was under the jurisdiction of the Pope. At the time I was born our priest was a married man, and that was not uncommon in the Ruthenian rite.

So this really is nothing new; it's merely "back to the future".

By the way, Andy Warhol also worshipped in the Ruthenian rite:

Go figure.

The Next Financial Crisis

Something is very wrong over at the Federal Reserve System. You can read about it here:

MAGA has failed (or been derailed, take your pick). The big questions now are will the crash happen before or after the 2020 election ... and who will get the blame?

Our Naive Whistleblowers

Two of our better-known whistleblowers seem to think they'll someday be let off the hook:

Blowing the whistle is only tolerated when it serves the greater purposes of the deep state. Did Chelsea or Reality do such a thing? I don't think so.

And it has largely been forgotten that no one tattled on Obama ad-Dajjal because the leakers on his watch went to jail:

Maybe Trump would have thrived had he done something similar. Or maybe not. Obama ad-Dajjal got away with LOTS of things which got others into trouble.

By the way, according to Harry Truman the CIA was created to keep the president informed about what was happening in the world ... not to help his detractors overthrow the president. Are we really supposed to believe the CIA now has grown a conscience after killing so many people, helping starve so many people, and having told so many lies?

Comey's Bizarre Conscience

Former FBI Director James Comey thinks Trump shouldn't be impeached, urging instead that he be removed from office via the democratic process:

Why then has the US supported the overthrow of so many foreign leaders, all of whom were voted into office by their own people in elections which in many cases have been more legitimate than ours?

Dear Jim - please sit down and shut up.

Is Eating Meat A Crime ???

The lunatic fringe of the climate change movement wants to punish you for eating meat:

Assuming they get their way, will this ban apply to Soylent Green?

Ban The Joker

Should the newest version of The Joker be banned? I think it should, and I will not watch it.

Here is pertinent discussion:

If we continue to allow Hollywood to pump filth and depravity into our children's heads, then we shouldn't pretend we don't know why they (our kids) are so violent. It's because we don't have the courage to stand up to the monsters who are doing this.

The Swamp Abides

Here are some astute observations by Jim Kunstler:

The latest news media dumpster fire over President Trump’s phone conversation with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky is a three-way ruse. Ruse 1: deflect attention from the main issue, which is Joe Biden’s trolling for payoffs on his missions to foreign lands as vice-president, first Ukraine, where son Hunter was gifted a board of director’s chair and $50K-a-month salary with Ukrainian gas company Burisma, and then a $1.5 billion “private equity investment” to Hunter Biden’s wealth management fund from the state-owned Bank of China. Ruse 2: to deflect attention from the damage soon to be inflicted on the Deep State by the forthcoming DOJ Inspector General’s report on FISA court abuses. Ruse 3. To set in motion yet another obstruction of justice trap for Mr. Trump on the basis of false charges.

You can read the rest @

If, as Speaker Pelosi claims, no one is above the law, then why haven't these folks been prosecuted?
  • Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions, for doing the same thing Trump is now accused of
  • Bill Clinton, for his sex crimes
  • Hillary Clinton, for espionage and influence peddling
  • The Bidens, for influence peddling

It's now clear why so many of the criminals in the Democratic (sic) Party run for public office - it's the perfect shield against ever being sent to jail.

Whence Accountability ???

Here is a great comparison of Watergate to the crimes of today's US deep state:

Frankly, they really don't seem to care whether or not they are "trusted". Their chief concern is to keep themselves out of jail, and their coup against Trump certainly is motivated at least in part by that concern.

Politically Correct Medicine ???

Here is a description of something currently going on in US medical schools:

I certainly want my doctor to have a social conscience, but isn't their scientific competence more important?


According to this report, Trump and his minions did nothing wrong by contacting Ukraine about Joe Biden and his son's activities:

The president is both the nation's chief law enforcement officer AND head diplomat. Why wouldn't he urge Ukraine to investigate the Bidens, when such investigations are part of his job description(s)?

Face it - just about ALL the leading Democrats are criminals. To think these investigations are politically motivated may be true in part, but it misses the point - we shouldn't be excusing their crimes just because the criminals are running for office.

What BETTER time would there be to investigate them?

Climate Change Fantasies

Here is a list of 41 climate change predictions which have not come true:

This is not to say our planet's climate isn't changing. By all accounts it is.

The real issues are "how fast" and "what can we do about it". And telling fibs is not helping.

Some say humans are NOT responsible for what is happening:

If that is correct, then we need to change our approach from "stopping" to "how we can cope".

And we better make up our minds quickly.

Starving The Elderly

Here is a discussion of how the USA is failing to care for its elderly:

Instead of helping them, we mostly hear that they're parasites whose "entitlements" should be cut.

Does that make any sense to you?

Plastic Children

Here is a report stating how plastic has been found just about everywhere and in just about everything. I find it difficult to believe this will NOT have major health impacts:

Yet we still keep churning out plastic products like there is no tomorrow.

And perhaps there isn't.

No Future, No Children

According to this report, teenagers around the world have decided NOT to have children of their own until there is action on climate change:

Well guess what? The only "action on climate change" which could have a lasting impact is one which would reduce the human population. And these teenagers already are doing that.

Unfortunately, they cannot go back to having kids of their own without breaking their pledge.

What a fine kettle of fish.

Is WeWork A Fraud ???

That is the claim made in this report:

If what the author states is true, it's hard to come to any other conclusion.

And speaking of potential corporate malfeasance, here's another CEO making himself rich at the expense of key employees:

I am sick of Wall Street and corporations screwing us. So-called "deregulation" was the dumbest thing we suckers ever fell for.

USS Nautilus (SSN-571)

Here is a history of USS Nautilus (SSN-571):

I served aboard Nautilus from 1976-1980 and was a member of her decommissioning crew. I was her final Main Propulsion Assistant (MPA) and the last underway Engineering Officer of the Watch (EOOW).

Although she was noisy, we held our own during an exercise with USS Los Angeles, which at the time was a top-of-the-line attack sub. We could hear her, but she could not hear us. There always are places to hide underwater.

And I disagree with the claim she "made 2,507 dives and traveled 513,550 miles without incident". Nautilus collided with an aircraft carrier in 1966, almost sank alongside the pier and when at sea on more than one occasion during my tour, and broke down so frequently we couldn't keep track.

But she was a good boat, first of her kind, and definitely has a place in the hearts of all who took her to sea.

Swiss Reject 5G

A growing number of Swiss citizens don't want 5G:

I disagree that "fear" is the reason for this. The Swiss have an EXCELLENT school system, and they are VERY intelligent. If they don't want 5G, I would guess they have damn good reasons for rejecting it.

Don't Mess With Mother Nature

Here is further proof that genetic manipulation can produce VERY BAD results:

Only Mother Nature knows who should live and who should die.

Or don't our scientists actually believe the theory of evolution?

Yet Another Horrible Choice

As you may have heard, Charles Kupperman will replace John Bolton as US National Security Advisor:

WTF ???

Could we possibly make a worse choice - picking someone who actually may believe nuclear war is "winnable"?

Choosing him may make sense to some in the wake of the attacks on Saudi Arabia, but come on, people - is NUCLEAR WAR the answer to what ails us?

I certainly hope not.

Who Attacked The Saudis ???

As you may have heard, someone attacked one of Saudi Arabia's oil fields and a processing facility. You can read about it here:

Who had the ability to do this? Certainly China, Iran, Israel, Russia, and the USA can manufacture such drones.

Who had motive for such an attack? The talking heads all are saying IRAN, but does that make any sense?

John Bolton was just fired, Trump allegedly wanted to HELP Iran, and in response they attack the Saudis in a manner almost guaranteed to start a regional war involving the US? Unless these people are STUPID (and I don't think they are) Iran did not do this.

Cui bono?

The Saudis will benefit ... if this finally results in the destruction of Iran. But I don't think they would bomb their own facilities to achieve such a thing.

China and Russia have nothing to gain. China is a net oil user, so why would they want oil prices to increase? Russia is a net producer, but in spite of what the talking heads tell us this is NOT their style.

No, the most likely suspects are Israel and/or the USA. Netanyahu has an election to win, and a war with Iran would certainly help him do so. And the US deep state definitely wants payback for the 1981 hostage crisis, as well as an opportunity to "help" our tar baby Israel overcome all of their real and imaginary enemies.

I don't support war with Iran, and I don't think you should either.

How Far We Have Fallen

According to this report, a group has been selling "baby parts" for "research":

Who is the worse criminal here - the alleged sellers, or the people who "illegally" recorded the videos?

Snake-Like UFOs ???

You may have heard of this recent UFO phenomenon:

Here is what it reminds me of:

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Revelation 12:7-9 KJV

Pray hard, and do NOT take the mark.

CIA Mind Control

Here's one of the latest stories about CIA mind control:

It's never been proven that the CIA actually produced a "Manchurian candidate" style assassin of any sort. But one thing IS certain - they have been able to get millions of us to believe the delusion that ours is a just government of the people and that our thefts, murders, pitiless starvation of children, and endless wars are what G-d wants us to do to the rest of the world.

And that makes us all into America's Willing Executioners, whether we realize it or not.

By the way, here is something I wrote in 2013 on the subject of "brainwashing":

The "Islamic" Nuclear Bomb

Nine countries are known to possess nuclear weapons:
  • United States of America
  • United Kingdom
  • France
  • Russia
  • China
  • Pakistan
  • India
  • North Korea
  • Israel

Now it appears three more nations also may want such weapons:

1. Iran - see,7340,L-5585624,00.html

2. Saudi Arabia -

3. Turkey -

[Note - Anyone with a "nuclear power program" is well on the way to being weapons capable.]

Personally, I think nuclear anything was the dumbest idea humanity ever conceived. There are few if any benefits and several very bad detrimental aspects to it.

Mutual assured destruction (MAD) soon may be replaced by a religion-based belief in the "necessity" to use nuclear weapons. When that happens, we all shall regret ever having created them.

The Real Implication Of The Turing Test

You may have heard about the so-called Turing test, which allegedly would allow us to distinguish between a human and a robot/AI. If not, you can read about it here:

You also may have heard of the Three Laws of Robotics proposed by Isaac Asimov:

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Once a robot/AI undeniably passes the Turing test, one could argue it was eligible to be treated as a human. But to do so would pose a paradox - to wit, humans don't have to follow these three laws (and in reality do NOT follow them), so why should they apply to a "human" robot/AI?

9/11 - 18 Years On

Tomorrow is the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 catastrophe.

I still believe this video to be the best short explanation of what appears to have happened that day:

Here are some recent developments you may have missed:

1. Robert Mueller appears to have helped cover up Saudi Arabia'a involvement:

2. A study has shown the official story of what happened to WTC-7 to be impossible:

3. The "war on terror" has been a disaster for us and for the rest of the world:

We may never know exactly what happened on that day, but I'm convinced the official story is 100% BS.

Want to change my mind? A good, easy first step would be to release and publicize all the video surveillance tapes showing what really happened to the Pentagon on that day (i.e., all the tapes the FBI collected and sent down the memory hole). If they actually show a plane instead of a missile, I'll eat my hat (figuratively, of course).

Killing Christianity

I watched the movie The Celestine Prophecy last night. No, I have never read the book.

A few things occurred to me while watching the film:

1. The "prophecies" do not appear to be in conflict with the Bible. Indeed, they are quite concordant with the Book of Revelation and other passages.

2. I heard echoes of things mentioned by Leo Tolstoy in his book The Kingdom of God Is Within You.

3. Although it appeared the Catholic Church and the Peruvian authorities were the main antagonists in the plot, it should be mentioned that the USA - especially US corporations and their neoliberal approach to the global economy - also are responsible for what happened in Central and South America. The "prophecies" are very similar to the tenets and predictions of liberation theology, which the US and its corporations regard as a threat to the "stability" needed to guarantee a return on their investments in CA/SA economies.

Don't Apologize For Being Christian

Another public figure is being maligned for his Christian values. You can read about it here:

As Jesus predicted, we shall be hated for His sake. There is no need to explain our beliefs - they're adequately explained in the Bible through the words of Jesus Himself.

If you don't want to hear them, that's your choice.

Lepers In LA ???

Yes, we in the US have a public health crisis on our hands. Here is one example of what I mean:

Why do we have money for foreign escapades (i.e., needless wars) but none to help our own people here back home?

Uncle Sam, you are a disgrace.

Turning Chinese

We're becoming more like China every day. Here are a few discussions of that fact:

Is this a good thing? I think not.

The powers that be are reveling in their impending destruction of the USA. Should you disagree with my assessment, you better take a hard look at our major cities, at our rapidly growing government-corporate-personal debt, and at our collapsing sense of morality.

Forgive Us Our Debts

"Debts that can't be paid won't be paid. What always is at issue is just how they won't be paid."
Michael Hudson

Dr. Hudson maintains that throughout history wise rulers have periodically forgiven a large portion of public debt to keep their economies from collapsing. You can read about his findings in the book titled ...and forgive them their debts (see

Additional discussion of this issue can be found here:

You may have noticed that some of our politicians now want to "forgive" some portions of "our" debt. Here are two examples:

Do they really mean it, in the sense they want to help We the People, or are they supporting such measures merely to get elected to the White House? I think the answer can be found by looking at who is funding such candidates - US billionaires. Do billionaires really want our debts to be forgiven? I doubt it:

This development echoes what John Perkins wrote in his book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (see The powers that be have always known they can use unpayable debt to take over a nation's economy and further strip away its wealth. That's what they have done globally, and now they are doing it to the USA.

What are some of the ramifications of how "our" debt won't be paid? Here are some possibilities:
  • no more Social Security
  • no more Medicare/Medicaid
  • no more "safety net" of any kind
  • privatization of most government programs
  • privatization of most national parks, wilderness areas, and other publicly owned resources
  • the criminalization of poverty and poor people

Do NOT, however, expect them EVER to cut the military budget. The Pentagon is Wall Street's global enforcement arm, and the rich cannot thrive without the ability to force other countries and peoples to pay "their" debts.

I totally agree with Dr. Hudson and Ellen Brown that some form of "jubilee" is exactly what We the People need to restore balance to our economy. In fact, that's the real meaning of the inscription on the so-called Liberty Bell - DEBT RELIEF:

"Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof."

(see Leviticus 25:10 -

Isn't it time we stop accepting the notion that liberty means the "right" of the rich to oppress the poor ... and replace it with the realization that perpetual debt is the greatest tyranny of all?
