Editor,

So where are the Illuminati or the Bilderbergers when you need them? Yeah those all seeing and all powerful behind the scenes mover and shakers.

We’ve heard how they control the levers of power unbeknownst to us mere mortals. If they did exist then I would think they wouldn’t stand for the out of control madcap careening that is the state of affairs in the USA at the moment.

How could any rational all powerful cabal accept this nonsensical disbelief of science and medicine as well as just plain logic when it comes to our foreign and domestic affairs? They wouldn’t.

More likely they are just another figment of the vivid imaginations of our many conspiracy nuts who hang from every tree in late summer. If they existed, they must be on a sabbatical off in the Bahamas someplace. No adults left in the room here. Let’s hope November brings the fever down and some normalcy as well.

[beam]Hey guys and gals (if any), I'm so glad i have ;provided you all with such inexpensive entertainment. I"ll admit I don't know much abut the Illuminati et. al. but as for betting with some supreme being or other, I would think they/He/she/it wouldn't need our help at all if He/she, etc. existed at all. That supreme being must be dying of laughter at our follies. Have fun all.

Tafhdyd

Thanks for laughter. Of course the only thing the supreme being is laughing at is the two Trumpers that comment regularly but its is entertaining.

Pacman

Almost as entertaining as reading a thread about why people don't pickup their dog's poop on Nextdoor!!

Let's not forget that the Bilderbergs are still operating and pushing behind the scenes. Most recently they picked Carter and Obama who came out of nowhere and proved to be disastrous presidents. Now Ms. Harris is being promoted who went from a loser in the primaries, mostly because of her super leftist views, to a 'pragmatic moderate'. Don't make me laugh. CW is correct, our President Trump has been trying for years to get rid of that baked in system. We need another 4 years with Trump.

Jorg

You ARE kidding, Dirk, - aren’t you? No one can be that ignorant and uninformed! Just comparing someone like Trump with a real President like Obama, is a sick joke. Trump falls flat even in comparison with President Bush! That’s how bad he is. Don’t you watch him on TV? Trump is an embarrassment for the nation, and a laughingstock around the world, in sharp contrast with President Obama, who is still widely admired and respected. There is a very good reason why Putin prefers Trump, - so easy to manipulate, such a gullible fool, just melting in Putin’s dirty hands by the slightest little stupid compliment. Don’t you have a higher standard for the most important position in the world? As if these last 4 years weren’t enough, haven’t you seen what damage has been done with someone so uneducated, so lacking in intelligence and common sense, - someone so childish that he brags publicly about being able to recall 5 short, very common words? My goodness, Dirk, wake up!

Dirk van Ulden

OK Jorg - you fell for a snake oil salesman. The reason the world leaders loved him because Obama was a thoroughly unprepared amateur and they were laughing behind his back. In his pre-inauguration tour in Europe he was viewed as a simple-minded guy who could be easily rolled. And indeed he was. He set the stage and a low bar for the European expectation of presidential material. But, Jorg keep on thinking he was the best since sliced bread, a gift to certain types around the world. Trump, with all of his shortcomings, put an end to the Santa Claus mentality that Obama projected.

Jorg

Sorry, Dirk, nothing I can do to make you more aware of reality. You just don’t get it, or perhaps you don’t want to accept the painful truth regarding Trump. From where do you get all your foolish nonsense? If you watch Trump and Obama, listen to their words and the content of their messages, compare their actions and behavior with an open mind, the difference between the two should not only be glaring, but embarrassing. How on flat Earth can you find Trump competent enough for the highest office in the world, and his behavior worthy of a statesman? President Obama on the other hand, has all along been widely regarded as a statesman second to none in recent times. He was elected twice with a very comfortable margin, both with the popular vote, and the Electoral College. Trump? Barely made it, and only thanks to the EC. Won’t happen again! And why is Trump so scared by the thought of losing in November? Haven’t figured it out yet? Just wait and watch!

Jorg

Oh, Mike, Illuminati and all sorts of other silly imaginations are roaming freely around in certain otherwise empty heads. There is no cure other than science and logic, to which some are incurably immune. Why is it more prominent in this country than in the more progressive nations of the world? Does it have to do with our educational system, of which certain factions discourage the students from asking questions uncomfortable for some with ingrown ideas about the imaginary reason behind it all, - life in general and more specifically how certain “leaders” are illegally picked?

Christopher Conway

Trump is defeating the Illuminati, that is why we need four more years of this historic president. Trump has a special connection to God no one else does and together they are ridding this world of evil forces. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are next on their list. Stay tuned.

JustMike650

Chris you are like Charlton Heston in Omega Man.

Jorg

Be careful, JustMike650, - Chris would take that as a compliment! Or, perhaps that's what you intended, - to give the rest of us a good laugh?

Christopher Conway

I would hate to admit it but you have intrigued my curiosity. Never seen the movie but I do like Charlton Heston. I can't imagine he plays a flattering role if you say I am like his character in the movie though. I will check reviews and see if it is worth watching.

Tommy Tee

"Historic" president? Yes, he is historic in mishandling the pandemic, espousing misogyny and racism, making America a laughing stock around the world, and so much more. He does not represent or speak to the common person. No compassion or empathy. "It is what it is." He IS the illuminati.

Christopher Conway

Then you disagree with the author who claims there is not an Illuminati?

Jorg

Oh, yes, Chris! I’m sure Trump has a special connection with some imaginary co-conspirator way up high, which may also explain how the system was rigged so badly that someone that incompetent and unqualified could be let into the WH. It couldn’t be that enough voters were that dumb, could it, Chris? Trump may even need that help to remember those infamous 5 words that verified his self-classification as a Very Stable Genius: Person-man-woman-Kamala-TVeet!

Tafhdyd

You need to take a couple of days off and send your tinfoil hat in for repairs.

Jorg

Imaginary illuminati conspiracy, or not, Chris, a few days ago you challenged us to bet against Trump getting a second term in the house he has turned into such ill repute. Did you have any takers? I guess not, and here is why: you can split those who read it in two groups: 1) those who are so ignorant and fact challenged, that they would agree with you, and 2) those of us who wouldn’t take advantage of you by knowing the outcome. Granted, as opposed to most of us, you can bet with easy money you haven’t worked hard to get, - yet, there is some decency holding the majority of us back from “betting” on the obvious. Or, did you have something other than cheap money in mind to back up your bet?

Christopher Conway

I don't know where you came from Jorg, but in America, when you ask another individual do they want to make a bet or not, it is a simple yes or no answer. We don't ask the individual for a Shakespearean soliloquy on to bet or not to bet?

Jorg

What's the point of a "bet" if you're not willing to put up something of value to back it up, - besides a worthless opinion?

Tommy Tee

"I don't know where you came from Jorg, but in America, when you ask another individual do they want to make a bet or not..."

Conway: What kind of statement is that? It sounds exactly like some stupid xenophobic thing Trump would say.

Tafhdyd

Tommy Tee,

I don't want to burst your bubble but Chris's comment is way more advanced than Trump would ever say. Over 15 words in one sentence, NO WAY.
