Nikoley’s Sunday Scribbles

— Anything, not everything, but lots in-between | March 12, 2023

All settled in; January 6th bullshit you can’t ignore; Naomi Wolf Wowzers; Revisiting the JFK assassination and CIA involvement; A 48-hr deal

All settled in

It’s been quite the standard first week in any new place one finds themselves. Adverse issues reported, routines sorted, screaming internet ported; neighborhood scoped out, walking courses laid out.

Groceries shopped.

Knickknacks and furnishings got.

The pool is dipped, the gyms are hip, and I’m writing at quite a clip.

… This is the most ideal place I’ve lived since my arrival to Thailand over three years ago. That’s easy to say, I know. It’s that feeling. The closest was when I first moved to Rawai in Phuket to kick off 2021. But that was in a true hotel-resort. I was 5 steps from the pool, and the only reason I was getting such a great deal was because the owner was fucked thanks to the Covid fraud that the entire world went stupid over (actually, it exposed the stupidity already inherent).

That was bound to be fleeting, and it was. It’s a drag to have a living arrangement with an unstable rent amount. As soon as tourists began coming back, I couldn’t blame Gabriel for putting rent-increase pressure on me every month.

Here’s a brief tour of the new digs. My rent doubled from what I was paying in Rawai. Watch how I address that.

January 6th bullshit you can’t ignore

It’s long past the time to think anything but that America the Great is long-and-far gone. Stick a fork in it.

It’s done.

… And I know most of you don’t want to hear it.

It’s tantamount to a trusted source telling you that your son or daughter is an irredeemable piece of psychopathic shit and is likely going to hurt or kill someone one day and/or end up in jail, and/or dead from drugs and/or alcohol and/or firearms.

And even when you know it’s true, you’ll deny it, make excuses, and otherwise do all the completely human things people do when confronted with that most awful aspect of reality.

But yes, it’s that bad. America is that awful, and you’re no more going to vote your way out of this mess than you can pray or admonish or plead that wayward son or daughter off the path they’ve stumbled down.

You know what I’m telling you is true. If now’s not the time to confront it head on, deal with it cold and hard, and take action, then please enlighten me…

When would be a better time for you?

Let’s review, and this isn’t by any means an all-inclusive list.

  1. Covid / Lockdowns
  2. Election 2020
  3. “Vaccines”
  4. JFK assassination / CIA / Secret Service / Warren Commission et al.
  5. Twitter Files / FBI et al.
  6. Wuhan Lab Leak
  7. Woke hysteria / LGBT / Trans / Feminism / Racism
  8. Unlimited billions for the corrupt Ukrainian kleptocracy
  9. Nord Stream pipeline sabotage
  10. January 6 video

And it only goes back 3 years. Even with the JFK murder/assassination 60 years ago, it’s only now that Americans find out that at best, the CIA and Secret Service seem to have had some involvement in at least doing nothing to prevent what they knew was going to happen…and at worst…?

Let’s focus in on that because it illustrates what happens with Americans every time. It’s as human as those parents, above, who got word they knew was the truth but put it out of their minds anyway.

… But Americans are supposed to be different, right, that shining light on the hill, right? Wasn’t that the whole point, and isn’t it that The American Narrative is crafted specifically to call attention to the rest of the world that we’re the single or most prominent historical example of how governance is done right?

We’re all things to all people. The cat’s meow…the bees knees.

This is going to be Tucker Carlson intensive, and before you say, “don’t you have anyone else, any other sources?” understand that would be great—if only any other hyper-prominent source had the balls Carlson has. Just look at what he’s being subjected to right now because he released video footage that contradicts official doctrine…because he shed more light on an event and released more of the whole truth, i.e., parts of the whole truth that had been purposefully withheld from public view.

And we know what the broken-record Woke, Left, and Democrats would have to say bout it…the predictably given every time…

Bet you “parents” didn’t see this one coming, in response to Carlson’s release of verboten video footage that contradicts catechism and doctrine.

Caught pants down

And how many Republicans who went along with the original 1/6 solemn condemnations—some issuing such themselves rather than call for deeper investigation—are now silent and not spouting off like those 11 Republican Shitstains, above? How many of you, like me, harbored distinctive respect for Kennedy and Crenshaw, at least (but no more not ever again)?

What you have here are a bunch of Republican lawmakers who “amazingly” allowed the 1/6 event narrative to be crafted by the Left—and left not only unchallenged, but they seal-clapped—and rather than take the loss they double-down and turn against America and their own constituents for, essentially, rocking the apple cart.

What it is, really, is their true core natures and motivations being exposed to anyone with honest eyes and brains…and they know it! They already know and have discounted (priced-in, in trader-speak) the fact that they’ve lost huge numbers of Republicans and independents (and even some Democrats) because it ought not be Carlson who’s getting closer to the bottom of this.

They were derelict in their duties, traitorous to their oaths, negligent in jurisprudence, and offensive to the fundamental nature of benevolence and humanity.

And that was 3 years ago when 1/6 took place, when and where they did not say now wait a minute. Nope, they took the knee-jerk Democrat narrative and ran with it without even taking a breather.


Their condemnation of Carlson now—for “irresponsibly” doing his damn job as a journalist, bringing more facts to bear—sheds much light and revelation.

Let me reveal what that is to you by asking a simple question:

What’s really the fundamental root of Trump 2020; and how deep are the depths of that swamp Trump wanted to drain, and who really occupies it?

The answer to that question is also the only plausible explanation for this behavior from Republicans on an issue that would normally have “Republican Playbook” written all over it in terms of exposing Left Democrat congenital lies.

Now we see—and can’t unsee—that Republican top-echelon was never serious about America. It has all only been lip-service, gaslighting, and ploy…in order to gain and keep their primary value; which is, political power and influence—and not at all what’s advertised in their God, country, flag, patriotism, strength, justice, and The American Way shtick.

It’s all just a shtick for the innocently well-meaning, heart-right-place, gullible good folk who form the backbone of the only—it turns out—American greatness that ever existed.

Despicable beyond words.

Well…not words that I’m not capable of using. But I return you to that analogy of being a parent of an irredeemably wayward offspring. It’s best to be somewhat circumspect in the words one chooses.

Another example might be the Catholic Church that billions respect, love, cherish, and count on for their very salvation from the inevitability of biological death. So that when describing its centuries-long institutionalized cover-up and protection of altar-boy ass-rape by pedophilic clergy, one must struggle with words…

Do you sense what I’m getting at, yet?

Carlson has a number of videos covering the 1/6—heretofore unseen—video footage the politically entrenched are all panties-bunched about. But here’s a longer-but-better summary of the whole shebang. Watch it. If you’ve already seen it, watch it again in light of my foregoing take, and you’ll solidify additional integrations that will serve you well going forward…applicable to many other things.

Now with that video still in mind, I’d like you to read and consider deeply three quotes. Examine them in the context of not just purposeful lies, which are bad enough, but lies that are asserted in absolute and unmistakable face of what the plain and obvious truth is.

This is new territory for the place where America used to be. Lies in politics is the name of the game, but in practical reality, it’s often like sales and marketing where everything is a lie, the challenge is to tell the best, most convincing one and often still, the practical difference between the whole truth and a partial or mostly lie is either not much of a dig difference, not particularly harmful as a departure from the truth, and even, in rare instances, better than the truth.

That’s right. Sometimes suspending disbelief can have positive outcomes because humans are complex creatures. We’ll act extra hard in a good way upon something that’s not true, and where the truth might have excused us from not doing anything at all.

And so in the widest possible integrated view of it all from 30,000 feet, we’re all captive to a form of human civilization whose evolution goes only so far as to promote kings, presidents, generals, leaders, gurus, celebrities, professors, doctors, scientists, media personalities, elites, and other authority figures who set about to justify their existence, social position, and role within that existence.

They create problems where no problems otherwise exist (Mencken quote). Contrast that problem-creating behavior with that of sound business practices and dealings you clamor to pay for. It’s problem creation vs. problem-solving.

Once all the needless problems have been created and ensconced in narratives (stories people like to tell others), they set about to forevermore “solve the problem of x” while never quite doing so…or wanting to, or making much if any progress, really. Why would they want to solve a source of power and influence they themselves (or their class; or their bedfellows; or their allies; or their co-dependents) created in the first place to live off of as though it was a cottage industry?

(Take racism, for instance. Is it an institutional problem? No, and not for decades, at least—and slavery was on its way out because of business, economic, and industrial advancement. But according to the narrative lies, it’s worse than ever. The narrative simply co-ops any and all other perceived or created “problems” that can be remotely associated, in order to ensure that the cash-and-influence cow can never be declared a non-issue.)

And if you’re trusting, and not one to assume or take hold of the worst possible (cynical) view, it’s as hard to come clean with it all as it is for our hypothetical parent.

Look how much we have invested.

Anyway, it’s all for our own good, isn’t it?

… Famed leftist-feminist Naomi Wolf doesn’t think so, anymore. In perhaps the most thorough, exemplary, no-excuses apology I have ever read. She has had enough of the lies.

Dear Conservatives, I Apologize — My “Team” was Taken in By Full-Spectrum Propaganda

Before I copy and paste in the money quotes, it’s worthwhile to point out that this constitutes good evidence that within almost everyone, there’s a spark of honesty, self reflection, shame, and yes, pride enough, that repentance and redemption can usher forth.

A former friend whom I still quote now and then often says, “everyone has their own level of outrage.” That is, lies, deception—and repeating lies and deceits—takes a soul-toll on us. If there were no costs associated with manipulation, lying, and deception, then it’s most of what everyone would do.

Naomi Wolf reached her own level of outrage, and she’s no small fry. Who’s next?

There is no way to avoid this moment. The formal letter of apology. From me. To Conservatives and to those who “put America first” everywhere.

It’s tempting to sweep this confrontation with my own gullibility under the rug — to “move on” without ever acknowledging that I was duped, and that as a result I made mistakes in judgement, and that these mistakes, multiplied by the tens of thousands and millions on the part of people just like me, hurt millions of other people like you all, in existential ways.

But that erasure of personal and public history would be wrong.

I owe you a full-throated apology.

I believed a farrago of lies. And, as a result of these lies, and my credulity — and the credulity of people similarly situated to me – many conservatives’ reputations are being tarnished, on false bases.

She goes on to relate that Carlson’s revelations were the nail in the coffin for her. And then she goes further, unraveling the entire 1/6 narrative as any good journalist could do in their sleep if we had any of those, anymore.

Then she goes even further, like this ah-ha moment for her constitutes a 100% reversal of blindness and now she can see.

But not only can she now see, she can see far and wide. As an intelligent person with a renewed sense of thoughtfulness and honesty, she connects dots, integrates, and synthesizes an entirely more accurate and consistent view and explanation of things.

Jan 6 has become, as the DNC intended it to become, after the fact, a “third rail”; a shorthand used to dismiss or criminalize an entire population and political point of view.

Peaceful Republicans and conservatives as a whole have been demonized by the story told by Democrats in leadership of what happened that day.

So half of the country has been tarred by association, and is now in many quarters presumed to consist of chaotic berserkers, anti-democratic rabble, and violent upstarts, whose sole goal is the murder of our democracy.

Republicans, conservatives, I am sorry.

I also believed wholesale so much else that has since turned out not to be as I was told it was by NPR, MSNBC and The New York Times.

And as though needing to not stop now, but would rather thoroughly cleanse her soul and snatch at any measure of redemption she might merit, she sings:

  1. I believed that stories about Hunter Biden’s laptop were Russian propaganda — til it was debunked.
  2. I believed that President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia — until that assertion was dropped.
  3. I believed that President Trump was a Russian asset, because the legacy media I read, said so.
  4. I believed in the entire Steele dossier, until I didn’t, because it all fell apart.
  5. I believed that Pres Trump instigated the riot at the Capitol — because I did not know that his admonition to his supporters to assemble “peacefully and patriotically” had been deleted from all of the news coverage that I read.
  6. Because of lies such as these in legacy media — lies which I and millions of others believed — half of our nation’s electorate was smeared and delegitimized, and I myself was misled.
  7. It damages our nation when legacy media put words in the mouths of Presidents and former Presidents, and call them traitors or criminals without evidence.
  8. It damages our country when we cannot tell truth from lies. This is exactly what tyrants seek — an electorate that cannot know what is truth and what is falsehood.
  9. Through lies, half of the electorate was denied a fair run for its preferred candidate.

I’m sure she could go on. One gets that sense; that she’s constrained by just the inherent balance and limitations in these sorts of things in the face of so much more epiphanal fodder to toss into the feeding pen.

I don’t like President Trump (Do I not? Who knows? I have been lied to about him so much for so long, I can‘t tell whether my instinctive aversion is simply the habituated residue of years of being on the receiving end of lies).

But I like the liars who are our current gatekeepers, even less.

The gatekeepers who lie to the public about the most consequential events of our time — and who thus damage our nation, distort our history, and deprive half of our citizenry of their right to speak, champion and choose, without being tarred as would-be violent traitors – deserve our disgust.

I am sorry the nation was damaged by so much untruth issued by those with whom I identified at the time.

I am sorry my former “tribe” is angry at a journalist for engaging in — journalism.

I am sorry I believed so much nonsense.

Though it is no doubt too little, too late —

Conservatives, Republicans, MAGA:

I am so sorry.

It got a literal “wowzers!” from me; and again, I wonder, who’s next?

The only downside to this is that while it’s essentially and absolutely meaningless, it will give your usual suckers (Conservatives, Republicans, MAGA) hope.

There is no hope.

The fork is in the fix and the fix is in and it’s all done.

Fuck hope.

I began this by brining up the assassination of President John F. Kennedy 60 years ago this year.

Next year will be the 60th anniversary of the advent of gaslighting certain of the American citizenry with the dismissive and magical term conspiracy theory. No facts, no argument, no discussion necessary. Haul out that conclusion, and it’s an automatic win; everyone nods their heads like they’re supposed to, and moves on.

But there’s nothing new under the sun, and what a winning three years “conspiracy theorists” have had, haven’t they?

The revelations of the depths of evil perpetuated on humanity at global scale never seen over the last three years and its inevitable—albeit far quicker than I expected—exposure really compels us to reexamine every important narrative of the past because my sense of feeling—to an extent that’s tantamount to a guarantee—is that not only are they all false, but false, advantage “conspiracy theorists.”

In other words, it has all been a big lie. Layer upon layers, and webs in nests of lies and damned lies.

There’s nobody to trust. You’ve got to dig yourself.

… I was never ever the slightest bit interested in JFK assassination conspiracies and was only peripherally aware of their tenants. But, Carlson, again.

So I started thinking about it and I realized that it’s more odd or strange to believe that there was not some involvement by CIA and Secret Service. In other words, at the outset and given what was known at the time, those agencies would naturally be your prime suspects (means, motive, opportunity).

I’m not going to rehash it. I’m going to say that in the retrospective lens of the daily revelations to which we’re treated as to the behavior of institutional authorities recently, there’s little reason not to conclude that CIA/SS had not only something to do with it, but a lot, and more likely than not, carried it out.

How many of you have ever seen the very specific frames in this video (that’s my Rumble upload…I got it from someone)?

Here’s another one, the “French Version.” That’s a link because it’s age restricted, so has to be watched on YouTube because they’re just lookin’ out for you. It’s for your own good.

My biggest issue about the video? It’s been out there for 60 years. How many times have you seen the part where Secret Service agent William Greer, driving the presidential limousine, turns around, left arm over right, hand holding something looking like a gun, and Kennedy’s head explodes?

Me neither, until a few months ago.

And you know what? If anyone thinks it’s fake, doctored, or whatever, then since it’s out there, have that debate.

Instead, it’s the same as it ever was and at least it didn’t take 60 years to get hold of the 1/6 video footage, but only like 26 months.

I came across a neat summary of how much disbelief you have to suspend to believe the CIA/SS had nothing to do with this.

The government says that an insane lone gunman, a U.S. Marine marksman unconnected with anyone privately or with any foreign or domestic government, shot and killed the president. The president was being driven in an open-top convertible directly past the building the insane lone gunman worked at, while the gunman was in a perfect sniper spot high up in the building, and no one else was on his floor. With a bolt action rifle from 266 feet, the insane lone gunman fired three shots in about six seconds, two of which hit the president’s neck and head in the moving car. 45 minutes later, the insane lone gunman was walking down a residential street, approached, talked to, and then killed a local cop/Army veteran. Killing the cop while in hiding led to the government quickly finding the insane lone gunman, so that one hour after shooting the president from a hidden position, the government had the insane lone gunman in custody. Two days later, a crazy lone gunman, unconnected with anybody privately or in any government, foreign or domestic, shot and killed the insane lone gunman while inside the basement of the Dallas Police Headquarters. Both the president and his killer were pronounced dead in the same hospital.

The CIA had the insane lone gunman/Marine marksman on a list and was watching him, knew he had gone to the Soviet Union but had no idea he was going to kill anyone. The government has released 5 million pages of documents on the assassination as of December 2022, none of which show any involvement by anyone in the government. The CIA has thousands more assassination-related classified documents it still refuses to release 59 years later after everyone involved is dead and 30 years after a Congressional mandate to release everything. President George H. W. Bush is a former CIA Director, but he never knew anything about any CIA involvement.

Pardon my skepticism.

Well that’s only about half of what I wanted to cover, and I’m already over 3,600 mots. So until next time which, now that I’m settled, should be soon.


To reiterate, for those pushing back at my inclusion of those JFK shooting videos.

First, what are you afraid of?

Second, my problem is that this discussion is not in the mainstream, never has been, and has always been dismissed as “conspiracy theory”—as though that charge has any meaning whatsoever.

As we now know, it’s more bullshit than ever and moreover, when a charge of conspiracy theory is leveled, it’s all the more than good cause to take a very open, transparent, and close look…
