    Peter Zeihan

    I've got some good news and some bad news on inflation in the US...one has to do with COVID, and the other is about the labor market. Which do you want first?

    "IMMINENT ARRIVAL"


    An insightful sci-fi narrative penned by Quddus Ajimine and skillfully directed by Justin Kruse

    premise:

    Richard James, AKA "Reaper Rick," is a simple Red-blooded, paranoid, country man. His long history of Military Service has taught him to never trust the government, pushing him to live out his days in the country, off of the grid. Other than his religious viewership of his favorite cable news network, his only other connection to the outside world is through his good buddy, "Squinty Joe," who he only keeps in contact through HAM Radio. The two of them engage daily about the latest wild conspiracy theories, further exacerbating and shaping their views on the world ...

    The two are constantly trying to one-up each other, bragging about who has the latest gear or best doomsday prep. In their minds, the apocalypse is right around the corner so it only makes sense to have a solid plan. In this Sci-fi Dramedy short film, we follow a day in the life of Rick as his intense paranoia becomes a reality during one of the strangest days of his life!

    Teddy Roosevelt Jr. & the Mother of Normandy
    | American Artifact Episode 107

    The History Underground



    Dec 15, 2023 SAINTE-MÈRE-ÉGLISE
    Many are familiar with the Normandy American Cemetery but may not know that there were several smaller cemeteries that served as a temporary resting place for the fallen. One of those was Brig. General Teddy Roosevelt, who came ashore on Utah Beach on D-Day with the 4th Infantry Division. In this episode of American Artifact, we're exploring a few of these temporary cemeteries and looking at the story of a local woman who took it upon herself to care for the graves of the soldiers who had lost their lives fighting for the liberation of her country.

    This episode was produced in partnership with The Gettysburg Museum of History.

    Oh my here's an item that doesn't surprise me
    much on the going on (s) at the top of the Hill ...

    ....


    Back in the day (mid 60's), I lived only a few blocks from the Capitol with my dad ... Plan was for me to intern + get an appointment to the U.S. Capitol Page Program (note pages are in the Senate, House of Representatives, and Supreme Court). While living on Capitol Hill for a long time, my father had a very scopious view of the characters, settings, and real backdrops of what some locals referred to as the 'Rhinestone Ghetto'.

    Wisely, but most likely more practical, it was later decided by my family to send me off to a Franciscan boarding school to allow for them to show/guide me the way ...
    Heck of a week for the Left,' he wrote. 'Gay porn in the Senate, swearing in ceremony on child porn in Virginia, t****y tap dancers in the White House, and Satanic statues in Iowa. What else am I missing?'

    Getting Ready for a Post-American World

    Peter Zeihan


    Dec 18, 2023 #globalization #usa #collapse
    The end of 2023 is approaching, and that means I owe you all a gift. Sorry to disappoint, but it's not an all-expenses-paid vacation to BoraBora. Instead, I've thrown together a 'Post-America' series that breaks down what the world looks like as the US steps back as global protector.

    South Dakota doomsday city built underground

    Dec 13, 2023
    Bunkers, survival plans, stocked pantries and stashes of supplies — We’ve heard about doomsday preppers for a while. But now it’s becoming a big business. Real estate speculators say there are plenty of people out there worried enough about the future to buy properties in bunker communities. NewsNation national correspondent Brian Entin visits a former Army base turned bunker community in South Dakota that’s off-grid and built to be self-sufficient.

    The Middle East, After America

    Peter Zeiha

    Dec 19, 2023 #middleeast #globalization #usa
    To kick off our 'Post-American' series, we'll be looking at the Middle East. The best way to break this down is into three chunks: the role of the US as it leaves, the role of regional powers as they rise, and the role extra-regional powers might play.

    Hello David


    David is enjoying an idyllic day with his wife and baby girl in their comfortable, charming home. But their family time is interrupted, first by a notification from his phone and then a visit.

    The visit is from a famous actor named Charlton Phillips. Charlton would like to have a private word with David -- about David's secret life as an online troll, where he's left tons of abusive comments and messages for Charlton. And now Charlton is here to confront David about them.
