“Hot mikes” are absolutely priceless, aren’t they? I must wonder if this is intentional sometimes.

The link says it all. Fill in categories as you will.

    We are close to a “double facepalm”.

    I cannot understand how anyone can support such nonsense. Pelosi, Feinstein, Obama, Schumer, Clinton, add any of them you want, all of them, are somewhere between being demagogues and lunatics. They’d be funny if it weren’t so serious.

    Chris, that woman (IF that is what she is referred to)…is NUTS!! What the hell is wrong with her?
    Why is she still in office?

    Ain’t it great?

    You do have to wonder if it’s something in the air. We could guarantee it if they weren’t from all over the place.

    Absolute batshit crazy, and I don’t know.

    Pelosi and all the other California Queens are in office for two reasons.
    1) They have pools of fully indoctrinated voters in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
    2) Our voting system has been gerrymandered beyond belief. Feinstein began setting it up in the late 1970’s. Look up her early political career in San Francisco. I used to know one of the people fighting her. Unfortunately, he lost.

    I’m hoping, that in the coming conflict over tax dollars and sanctuary cities, that Trump is going to find a way to break our insanely corrupt system.

    If Jerry Brown actually does try to withhold Federal Income Tax money from Washington, I can just see FBI and IRS agents showing up in the California Treasurer’s office with drawn guns, subpoenas, arrest and search warrants. That’s a bit of a fantasy I know, but it’s a fun picture anyway.

    My Lord! I didn’t know Jerry Brown was still around! Good Grief!

    He’s still around and he is the current Governor of California. For fun, here’s an interview he did about 20 years ago. I promise you’ll like it.

  11. 02/01/2017 23:22

    Unfortunately, yes. Apparently the choice of the left coast.

  12. 02/01/2017 23:23

    And what a joyous fantasy it is!

    This…idiot(?)…is so far beyond belief it’s nearly unbelievable. I don’t know if idiot is actually correct. You’ve got to have a lot of smarts to play shit like he has. Or a huge amount of idiots buying your shit.

    I vote for “huge amount of idiots”.

    Liberal thinking was successfully hijacked by KGB manipulation by the late 1960’s. They’ve gotten a little dumber every day since.

    That is why Bezmenov was such a revelation to me. Before I found his lectures and interviews, I knew something had gone wrong, but I didn’t know what or why.

  15. 02/02/2017 06:15

    As for Yuri Bezmenov, as you said, he was a revelation. I thought there were strange things going on with the beatniks when I had heard of them. Then came the hippies. Yes, some of this was before my time, but we looked at them in Civics class. Or whatever we called it back then. It’s been forever ago.

    I think I’m only a few years older than you, yet things moved so fast in the 60’s we’re almost in different generations. The real Beatniks and Hippies were far different than what they are known for today. I was there and looking back, this is how I see it. There were no sharp divisions between the groups, but there are some fair generalizations.

    The Beats were more artistic than anything else and had a decidedly Leftist slant they made no bones about. The most interesting thing about them is that they explored ideas of art and culture. The Bauhaus was a big influence on them and the Impressionists another. Their art incorporated both. They left some experimental literature and brought some Eastern Philosophy to the West. Jack Kerouac is probably the best known writer. Some of their art still looks good. From them, I have an old copper ashtray that is very utilitarian, yet with a clean and organic shape. Over my desk is a dark duo tone lithograph of 3 Black kids in an alley, one playing a harmonica and a bright, impressionist water color of Cuernavaca. Much more interesting art than squirrel vomit on Bakelite or a Cross submerged in urine. The Beats were iconoclasts and heavily Leftist, but they weren’t based on ignorance, anger or hate.

    The Hippies were much more adventurous and all encompassing, very independent and very Libertarian in their outlook. They rose from the Beats in the 1950’s, but didn’t necessarily incorporate the Communist outlook of the Beats although it was often present. It was an amorphous movement whose real descendent’s cover the spectrum from modern bikers, to the original computer techies, to Evangelicals who actually read and study the Bible.

    Hippies are people who look for frontiers to explore.

    The Hippies incorporated elements from the Beats and were rebellious, yes, but if they’d had an actual defined philosophy, it would have been to use original thoughts and explore ideas, while still building on the original cultural base.

    There never was a movement that called themselves Hippies. People were sometimes described as hippies (Usually about something odd and original in their thinking, with roots in the Beatniks.), but there was never a movement by that name. That usage was coined by the popular press who knew something was happening, but didn’t know what they were seeing. Today, it’s a convenient and usually misapplied term to describe a cultural phenomenon.

    Drugs were common, but less central to the culture than is now believed. Drugs were part of the experiments, no more, no less. Actually in the Hippy movement, they were a passing fad that got everyone’s attention because the larger society disdained and was somewhat scared of drugs.

    The third group were the Flower Children. Flower Children and Hippies are often confused. When you say Hippy, it’s usually a Flower Child you are talking about. They often looked and sounded the same, but were actually very different. Back in the day I noted that those who wore boots and those who wore sandals were very different. I wore boots.

    The Flower Children (sandals), rose in the middle 60’s and were in many ways the bastard children of the Beats and Hippies. Much of the Flower Child culture also grew out of the Communist backed pacifist movement of the 1940’s and early 1950’s. They disdained weapons of any sort (Hippies did or didn’t depending on personal preference and circumstance.). Drugs were central to the culture of the Flower Children and they disconnected from what I call practical reality (Think of the character L.S.D. in the movie “The Producers”). They were actually an early outward manifestation of the KGB undermining our society.

    By the 1970’s all three movements were sucked up and sort of emulated by a very hedonistic popular culture that like all popular cultures had no idea what they were actually doing. The independence of the Hippies was lost in group think, remaining elements preserved only by the bikers, advanced computer techies and Evangelicals. There is a huge irony in that. The Communists (per Bezmenov) were ecstatic at the success of their work that had been injected into the popular culture by the early Peace Movement and the Flower Children. The Beatniks simply died out, their time over.

    The Radical Left as exemplified by Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn or the early Black Panthers were yet another group who blended into the mix, although they were and are separate in many ways. They are the ones who both founded and perverted the anti war movement. They embraced the Communism of the Beats and the idiocy of the Flower Children while being very violent. They contributed nothing to art, philosophy or technology. They are exactly as you understand them to be and they have been a huge element in the make up of Modern Liberalism.

    This is a very simplified summary, but looking back, that’s pretty much how it worked.

    Very well defined, my friend. Excellent. But my take on the Beatniks was that they were the seeds, planted by the Soviets, to bring that movement. Because it was so “hip”.

    No kidding. Like I said, the Beats made no bones about being Communist sympathizers if not outright Communist. Back in the 1940’s a lot of Americans, a minority, but still a significant number were outright Communists. Soviet propaganda had completely hidden Stalin’s murderous nature. Many B movies of the 1930’s and 1940’s had very heavy handed Communist themes. They weren’t very good as movies and mostly Hollywood has been happy to forget about them.

    At one time, Netflix had a movie in their catalog called The Trans Atlantic Tunnel or something like that. I tried watching it and was astounded that people in the 1930’s had paid to see a second rate movie that was pure Communist propaganda. There were a lot of other Communist themed movies as well. Hollywood really had been infiltrated by the Commies.There were also the Soviet classics by Sergei Eisenstein, like Battleship Potemkin. Interesting period pieces if nothing else, but also outright Communist and well circulated over here.

    Some people like George Orwell understood what was going on. Animal Farm came out in 1945 and 1984 in 1949. There weren’t enough like him. When The Manchurian Candidate came out, I don’t think anyone realized just how close to reality it was.

    It wasn’t until the Korean War that most people in the U.S. started to realize what a problem they were facing. I can’t deny the Communist influence on what happened in the 50’s and 60’s. It’s in paragraphs 2 and 3, plus the Peace Movement, Anti War Movement, Flower Children and Radicals all had heavy Communist influence or were outright Communist and run by people like Angela Davis. They never cared about Power to the People, all they cared about was taking over.

    A lot of us ignored it at the time (to my personal sorrow) because Communism just didn’t look viable as an economic system. The only way to make it work always involved heavy state control and that had a track record of screwing things up as well as demonstrating the basic impossibility of a system that said the government would whither away while controlling every aspect of life. We didn’t appreciate just how subtly Communist thinking had infiltrated and how they took over while we were all dancing disco in the post Nixon era. When I say we, I’m talking about people like me. It’s something I was very wrong about and I’m still pissed about it.

    I spent from the 70’s to the 90’s watching the Democrats become increasingly less democratic and more interested in control. It wasn’t until Bezmenov that I realized I was seeing the results of Communist infiltration that dated back at least to the 1930’s if not earlier. After the McCarthy era in the 1950’s, the Commies really went underground to push their agenda by subtle means. 1970 was roughly the tipping point but not enough people understood that. Then Nixon screwed up, Viet Nam went to Hell, our economy went to Hell and no one wanted to do or think about much of anything. Carter was elected because Nixon had shamed the Republicans so badly that a Republican had little to no chance of being elected to anything.

    Carter was an obvious idiot and later Reagan gave some hope, but the Reagan Revolution was beaten back when Bill Clinton defeated George H.W. Bush for the Presidency. Without the groundwork laid down by the Anti War movement, Clinton wouldn’t have won.

    I hope some of this makes sense.

    btw – I sent you a thing on Facebook to check out. Might be nothing, but let’s be sure. The recent stuff in Berkeley confirms that the Libs have a very well organized and disciplined wing dedicated to violence.

    Last thought – Check out the words to Won’t Be Fooled Again by The Who. Maybe a little more prophetic than we realized when the song came out.

    It was.

    I joined the military during the Nixon/Ford period. I knew Carter was an idiot. I rejoiced when Reagan took power, HW turned out to be a bit of a globalist but wasn’t horrible, and the only damn thing I wanted from Clinton was his signature on my retirement papers. Luckily, America woke up enough to put Newt and the group in congress right after I retired. Then they went back to sleep, and thus the nation returned to its decline. America has finally awoken again. Somebody needs to glue that snooze button so we don’t go back to the crumble. Perhaps my experience was a bit different from the average citizen, being military during those years.
