    Seen on Facebook:

    The reason there are conspiracy theories is that there are conspiracies. Note in particular his point #7; the MSM are not the only ones who call people conspiracy theorists as an instrument of discrediting; our own cohorts do it as well–Rush Limbaugh, for example, does it all the time. Over to Jeffrey:

    The absurd piece in the NY Times today is an admission that

    1) There is a Deep State

    2) The Deep State is engaged in a Coup

    3) Conspiracies can happen and do so often.

    4) The Media often know who the conspirators are and hide
    them

    5) Hiding conspiracies is effective because there’s institutional pressure and an old boy club that successfully keeps 90% of insiders inline and brushes aside the occasional truth teller or whistleblower. The idea that conspiracies can’t happen because they would be quickly exposed is nonsense.

    6) If the MSM ignores a story, “exposing the truth” has little effect. The truth does not disrupt a conspiracy by exposing it, but ONLY by reaching a high critical mass of attention and that critical mass must spring from an ideological desire plus the courage to buck a trend against often very high risk. Thus conspiracies are not the uncommon thing we have been led to believe. Quite the opposite. This type of conspiracy is as difficult to overturn as any institutional hegemony. Closed clubs only promote the ideologically like minded, so few top insiders have any interest in telling the truth and those few face very high personal risks.

    7) The MSM call us “conspiracy theorists” as a trick to discredit us, because they are in on conspiracies. This is but one of many tactics they employ to render mere exposure ineffective.

    8) There are many conspiracies from the past that are, in effect, lost to history. There are too many ‘facts’, too many theories and even too many contradictory 1000 page tomes by well meaning writers dedicated to ferreting out the truth, too many club members, too much destroyed evidence, too much fear, too much time, etc. We have been lied to many times. We can know that. But we can’t know the truth. There are no institutional systems capable of certifying “the truth” on many issues.

    9) There are many ongoing conspiracies in the present. There are communists, globalists, powerful bankers and hidden string pullers. If pedophilia rings can infect the church on a large scale, they can infect any institution. If global central bankers, business leaders and politicians have global meetings without cameras, they are doing so to further their interests and don’t want you to hear what those are. They don’t get together for the entertainment.

    10) If hegemonies can span generations then there is no reason to think that hidden conspiracies are any different, since they are a type of hegemony themselves.

      Hegemonies in America would be the European equivalent of a royal succession, no? You not only had poor peasants who came to America but rich European families who saw an opportunity to expand their wealth and power in what was essentially an open arena.
      We have numerous examples of rich and powerful American families whose influence stretches back generations, some of the names may have changed due to marriage but the stain…errr, ‘strain’…runs true. The Bouviers and the Kennedys come immediately to mind. The Bouviers with their social standing breeding with the shanty Irish Kennedys money. Talk about putting lipstick on a pig.
      The Cabots, the Lodges, Rockefellers, DuPonts..old line. The Clintons (pig, lipstick, industrial-sized applicator), Gates, Zuckerbergs, the start of the new lines of trash to riches royalty.
      The monied folks I was hired to work with at the Towers were mostly gutter-to-penthouse types and didn’t need generations of social superiority to think of themselves as light years ahead of the common trash they percolated out of. Those feelings superiority, being destined by Higher Powers to have ‘more’ due to their being ‘chosen’ bubbled up along with their success, imagine the same folks with generations of privilege to sweeten the fermentation. Look what Weinstein became in short order – imagine a family of him.
      They’re there, in the posh housing areas around the American power centers on both coasts, drawn by their wealth and layered by their self-determined social standing. We are their ‘ants at the picnic’, useful as tools and need their superior guidance to keep from drowning in a heavy rain. The Communists/anarchists recognized them in Europe but instead of reining them in under the law they just decided to off them all. The latter option does have its charm but bumps up against that ‘law’ thing.

        I’ve met people like that, but I’ve also met wealthy people who went out of their way to help me. One even offered to pay for lifesaving medical treatment for me, which wasn’t necessary, thank God.

        I’ve also seen lots of middle clas people who have gigantor sized ideas of importance and entitlement.

      Cheers for our lovely First Lady!

      What Mr. Anonymous lacks understanding in is that President Trump’s style has made him a billionaire but one with a conscience and a heart for those who have worked diligently toward the overall plan, whether it’s golf courses or buildings or resorts or keeping his promises made during his campaign for President.

      Anonymous doesn’t like to follow orders and sets his own plan against the President keeping the promises upon which he was elected. He’s likely is a lousy worker who loves to think he knows more about everything than the boss who keeps the records of his businesses in his head. This stinkin’ little coward is a major loser who sports an amazing amount of hubris.

    I took my little doggie back to the vet for a follow up visit. Nothing seems to have changed much. The vet is concerned about her gums being inflamed. She had pulled a bad tooth months ago and we thought that would take care of the gum problem, but it persists, so she put her back on an antibiotic. Hopefully that along with the steroid she is taking will fix it. What is amazing is that Foxy looks and acts so normal and healthy otherwise. She runs when we go for a walk. Seems to have a lot of energy. Sleeps well at night. Her coat looks healthy. So, she’s good for now.

    I have changed her food to a better one and started her on some Donovite which is a supplement. I figure she will just be a little healthier even if the cancer grows. We’ll see.

        I never thought of it that way, but you are probably right. She’s mostly calm and happy as long as I am here with her. That may prove positive for her.

        She almost completely lost her mind when a couple of years ago I had to leave her at a busy kennel instead of at the small vets’ kennel where she would usually stay when I went away. She almost lost her mind. So, she is very sensitive. She is a very good companion for me.

      Tucker (as Stella did) eats a good quality grain-free dry dog food. When I changed Stella to that food, she lost excess weight, and was much healthier.

        I have been feeding her dry Natural Balance. It is rated pretty high. I did a lot of checking before I chose it. However, after a year or so, I switched to the low-calorie dry version. When I looked it up recently it was rated lower than the other dry food. I think that may be because it has less fat. She has been losing weight, so I decided to put her back on the regular and, funny thing, I caught her trying (what a joke for a doggie with dachshund legs) to jump up to the top of the washer where the bag was sitting. She loves this. I also got some Dinovite supplement to see if that will help her keep her health as long as she can.

          I had both of my dogs on Blue Buffalo, but now Tucker is eating Merrick Turkey and Sweet Potato. He likes it (but he likes just about anything). I switched him because he was having a problem with indigestion. Seems fine now.

      In Wikipedia, the entry for Assat’s Daughters, which is the group referred to here, states their demands include freedom for all Black men in federal, state & county jails & prisons, for all Black men to be exempt (?) from military service, & the right for self- determination for gender & sexuality. They are modeled on Black Panther goals, except the last one.

        All black men are “exempt” from forced military service…and all whites, browns, reds, yellows and combos thereof. The group is so ignorant they probably don’t even know we have an all-volunteer military now.

        Kaepernick is a lesson in ungratefulness. He was given up for adoption and went to a family which loved him, provided well for him, supported him in all his sports and schooling where he was an excellent student, and into the pros. He was brought up as a Christian (the tats you see on him are all Biblical in nature!). His birth mother has kept secret from him who his father is so basically there’s been no caring black man in his life. Somewhere along the line and likely when he met this woman he’s engaged to, he chose turn on everything, take her Marxist/Islamic diatribes as truth, and become anti-American. Quite a transition and one that is both maddening and saddening.

    Kiddo was crying when I picked him up at the end if his first day. Combo of new, long day, and being hungry. Better today but cried at school again. I hope its just a learning curve. Trying to get him in a routine will take some time I suppose. But he loves the school. They even had a music lesson today.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
