Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Definitions matter

And the contrived term “assault weapons” still means: all of them.

According to gun ban advocates, “assault weapons” have been claimed to include: air guns and paintball guns; most handguns; all semiautomatic rifles; most shotguns; all slide action shotguns; any semiautomatic the Secretary of Treasury wants to ban; guns listed by name; and guns with certain features, such as adjustable stocks.

The very heterogeneous group of so-called “assault weapons” has only two things in common. First of all, none of them are automatics or machine guns. Gun prohibition advocates have very effectively created and then exploited public confusion on this point. Second, none of the guns are “assault rifles,” as that term has been defined by experts from the Defense Intelligence Agency. An actual assault rifle is capable of selective fire, meaning that it can fire automatically or semi-automatically with the flip of a selector switch; examples include the U.S. Army M-16, the Soviet AK-47, and the German Sturmgewehr.

In short, “Assault weapon” is just an epithet to stigmatize the largest possible number of guns and gun owners—the breadth of the definition of the moment depending on the politics of the moment.

Yep. They won’t stop till they’ve grabbed ’em all, and they’ll use any trick they can to get it done.

Open letter to Trump

From Doug’s lips to God’s ears.

Dear President Trump,

I know you are courageous. I know you are a patriot. I know you care deeply about the future of this nation. Therefore I have addressed this request to you and you alone.

As is well known, the tangled web of the federal bureaucracy and national media have produced an embedded administrative state that some term the “Deep State”.

Through administrations of both parties, in good times and bad, the size and scale of the federal leviathan has grown completely unchecked.

And like a living organism, it has, over time, developed its own survival instinct.

Among its defensive tactics are the collective set of crimes known as “Spygate”, which represents the weaponization of Obama intelligence and law enforcement agencies against you. Starting in 2015, deep state actors embedded in CIA, DOJ, DNI and FBI leadership positions launched simultaneous campaigns more suitable for a South American dictatorship than the United States.

The first such campaign was an effort to exonerate Hillary Clinton for her egregious and clearly criminal mishandling of huge troves of classified information. The second, of course, was the attempt to first prevent you from winning the presidency and then, immediately upon your victory, to have you impeached or removed from office. The latter scheme includes the Mueller special counsel itself, which is simply a second phase of the scheme to entrap Trump administration officials in various “collusion” scandals.

Many pro-administration pundits believe that all you can do is wait for the outcome of the deeply conflicted Mueller probe, which has suffered forced attrition due to a variety of untoward bias and prejudice. Once the special counsel report has been delivered, you could choose to declassify key assets that document the criminality of those behind Spygate.

But there is another way.

Use the Clintons to take the Deep State to the Woodshed

Hillary Clinton, like Barack Obama, is a radical leftist who despises the Constitution and the free market. Her troubling history is well-documented, as even The Washington Post observed in 2008 when the editors of that dying journal were trying to get then-Senator Obama nominated.

Hillary Clinton and her husband have some secrets you can help expose, in spite of what the Mueller probe chooses to investigate, which, thus far, appears to be only persons affiliated with one particular political party.

Ross is off and running from there, and however far-fetched it might appear to you at first as a blueprint for doing battle effectively against the Deep State, you really ought to read all of it. I think he just might be onto something, myself.

An Army of one Snowflakes?

Incredibly, appallingly, this seems to be neither spoof nor satire:

SnowflakeArmy.jpeg


That’s a Brit army recruiting poster and, as I said, it would seem to be on the level:

LONDON — “Snowflakes,” “phone zombies,” “binge gamers” and “me me me millennials” are the focus of the British army’s latest recruitment campaign.

Posters and billboards reminiscent of the famous World War I “Your Country Needs You” ads have been given a 21st-century twist, sending the message: “The army spots potential. Even if others don’t.”

Oh, there’s potential all right, and plenty of it. For disaster.

The U.K. has struggled to maintain its target of 82,000 troops in recent years due to a declining number of recruits.

The new ads appear to attempt to engage millennials by connecting the stereotype of the screen-addicted generation with desirable skills. “Phone zombies” are wanted for their focus and “binge gamers” for their drive.

And the Snowflakes for their “compassion,” surely THE critical attribute for any true warrior to have.

Hey, thank goodness nothing like that could ever happen here, right? On the bright side, though, I’m sure the New Model Snowflake Army won’t have a problem with parade-marching in womens’ high heels. Or cute little sheath-dresses, probably.

CONTROVERSY!

First, the video:




Then, the stunning, mortifying admission: I agree one hundred percent with Ace on the central issue here. Which ain’t what you might think it is.

A twitter account with the suspiciously on-the-nose name “QAnon1776” — way to hit every single fringe/conservative meme there! — was suddenly birthed and was soon suddenly deleted. During its brief life, however, it managed to “break” the news that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex once did a Breakfast Club dance in “high school.”

They say “high school” despite the fact that she is wearing a “BOSTON UNIVERSITY” t-shirt, and the “BOSTON UNIVERSITY” name is emblazoned exactly where your eyes are glued — it’s a tight shirt, and in that shirt, she has a nice rack.

So it’s kind of hard to imagine what this “QAnon” devotee was looking at instead of “BOSTON UNIVERSITY.”

Block-letter words and big meaty tits — how do they work?

In any event, no named “conservatives” apart from “QAnon1776,” who I hear is close personal friends with “GunTotingCommieHunter69” as well as “MakeBitchesMakeSammitches4Ever” as well as “MAGAInsertRacialSlurHereKiller,” commented on the video, apart from the usual Twitter Cucks spending all night and morning Virtue Signalling that they did not see why anyone would think this was embarrassing.

I would have linked it myself except for the fact that it shows Ocasio-Cortez in a more appealing and more juglightful light than I’m used to seeing her, and I reasoned that her big jugs and frisky attitude and also her big jugs would tend to make people like her more.

Until this video I thought she was plain. She looked like she was turning into una abeula rather early –lotta lines in that face for a 29 year old — with a face that looked like a Peasant Sandal to which had been appended Cookie Monster googly eyes.

But here? Lots of energy. And a tight shirt with big jugs.

A butterface, sure. But you know what? As the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Junior said, “I can’t fuck a face. Oh wait I can. But still– dem jugs doh.”

Okay, the full disclosure: I always have thought her kinda cute. Dumb as a box of hair, yeah, and absolutely deplorable when it comes to her muttonheaded political beliefs. But still: cute, just cute as all hell. No way around it. For whatever that amounts to.

Ace does get one bit wrong, though, about the vid tending to make people like her more. Not so for me; as long as she retains her ambition to steal what little is left of my freedom and have the government run my life for me, she’s my enemy. Period fucking dot. And no matter how jug-a-licious she is—and damn, she sure is—I wouldn’t trust her any further than I could throw one of her $5,000 dollar designer shoes. Lefthanded, in a stiff headwind.

Deep dive into the Deep State sewer

It’s corruption, all the way down.

A collection of reports compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, the dossier is now engraved in contemporary U.S. history. First marketed as bedrock evidence that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election, the dossier’s legitimacy took a hit after reports showed the Hillary Clinton campaign paid for the work.

The revelation that the dossier was used to secure a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page compromised the integrity of the investigation the FBI had opened on Page and three other Trump associates by the end of July 2016. Nonetheless, that same probe continues today as the special counsel investigation.

The dossier plays a central role in Robert Mueller’s probe. In the unredacted portions of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s memo outlining Mueller’s scope are allegations that Trump adviser Paul Manafort colluded with Russian government officials interfering in the 2016 race. That claim is found in no other known document but the dossier. It is unclear whether further dossier allegations are in the redacted portions of the scope memo.

The dossier operation has not only damaged institutions like the FBI and DOJ, it has also poisoned the public sphere, perhaps irremediably. As a result, it is now accepted journalistic practice to print, and reprint, any garish fantasy so long as it’s layered with Russian intrigue and Trump team treason. Even as the rest of the country sees an institution that has made itself a laughingstock, the press continues to salute itself for its bravery—or the courage and industry required to take leaks from law enforcement and intelligence officials and Democratic operatives in an effort to topple a president it doesn’t like, elected by neighbors it holds in contempt.

How did it come to this?

Easy: a bunch of goddamned Deep State liars cooked it up to cripple and/or unseat Trump for the sole purpose of preserving their own ill-gotten and illegitimate power, and to help Her Herness steal the 2016 election. After the unthinkable happened and it turned out her crippled, deranged, drunken ass couldn’t be dragged across the finish line by hook or (mostly) crook, Job One became covering hers and Obama’s busted attempt to rig the 2016 election—that, along with a whole slew of other criminal behavior besides.

Lee Smith does indeed dive deep into this stinking cesspool of Mordor On The Potomac malfeasance, and he deserves full props for his meticulous spelling-out of the details of the whole sordid tour de farce. It all amounts to a completely damning indictment of the Swamp entire; every single soulless blaggard who touched this turd is besmirched by his or her involvement in it, and prison ought to be the most minor of their worries. Actual revolutions have been sparked by less than has already been revealed of this mess, and we still don’t know the half of it. But for my money, the worst, the most damning part of all, lurks withing the wording of the godawful FISA law itself:

Title I of the 1978 Foreign Surveillance Act—“Electronic Surveillance within the United States for Foreign Intelligence Purposes”—lays it out. Under the definition of “agent of a foreign power,” there are two categories: “any person other than a United States person,” and “any person.” Since Page is an American citizen, he falls into the second category.

According to Wauck, the relevant parts are two paragraphs in Section 101 (b) (2). To obtain a FISA warrant on a U.S. person, the target either:

(A) knowingly engages in clandestine intelligence gathering activities for or on behalf of a foreign power, which activities involve or may involve a violation of the criminal statutes of the United States;

(B) pursuant to the direction of an intelligence service or network of a foreign power, knowingly engages in any other clandestine intelligence activities for or on behalf of such foreign power, which activities involve or are about to involve a violation of the criminal statutes of the United States.

Get that? “Any person other than a United States person,” and “any person.” “…involve or are about to involve a violation of the criminal statutes of the United States.” Gee, not much leeway allowed by that weasel-worded bafflegab, eh? FISA casts itself a pretty damned broad net, it seems, the better to be of use in any imaginable situation wherein the Deep State might wish to ensnare itself some prey, whether great or small.

The FISA law should be thrown out entire, immediately. It established one of the most unconscionable kangaroo-courts in history, an all-powerful, unaccountable, top-secret star-chamber of a sort that neither should nor could exist in any but the most brazen and corrupt of tyrannies. Its continued existence is a blight upon this nation, and a condemnation of any people that would countenance it. It is a crime and a disgrace. Its use in promoting the Steele dossiers and the ongoing coup attempt behind them is sickening…and is exactly the kind of thing FISA was designed to be used for from the start.

Going, going…

It ain’t just Trump they hate and are trying to overthrow. It’s us.

The United States of America is unsustainable as a political unit. It is at a moment when enough of the population has been indoctrinated into the new way of thinking and enough of the population has either avoided it long enough or recovered from it to create a solid line of division.

There is no illusion that the people’s representatives and senators consider them of any greater value than African “refugees” or illegal aliens, they don’t. In fact, because the “immigrants” come with no expectation of political rights or understanding of the political system, i.e. a republic, they are of greater value to rulers who seek not input, or direction from their constituents, but blind obedience and fear.

Deep in the heart of every so-called “public servant” is the certain knowledge that push come to shove, they have the power and tools to quash any dissension. We have given them that power by our unwillingness to rock the boat when they stepped out of line. “You can’t fight City Hall” was a popular refrain when I was growing up, but I always wondered why. Surely, fighting City Hall was the duty of the citizen in a republic. The coercion was already at work by the time I was eight.

Few people understand, as they watch the on-going attempted coup of a sitting president, that THEY are the subject of the coup. Illegal aliens and African “refugees” are the forces being brought in to fight the battle for the globalist traitors in our government. This is made clear and undeniable by the fact that government and the complicit traitorous media refuse to allow any criticism of these forces as they perform their functions of societal disruption and a breaking down of loyalist traditions and organizations.

That’s where the rub is that not nearly enough “old” Americans have quite gotten through their skulls. If you believe in America as it was in 1940, when men were men and women were women and the greater share of American society was Christian, if even vaguely so, you are of the OLD order and need to be done away with as soon as possible. If you will not fold and go away as the Boy Scouts did, then you have to be crushed, destroyed and silenced. If you will not accept your fate, they are preparing the path for your extermination. Because, very simply, you have to GO so they can take your place.

The government and their NEW constituents, the peoples of the world, have already begun the coup against the people of America.

Yep. It began a long, long time ago, in fact. It’s become way more difficult to hide of late, because the end stages always are.

Presidential prediction

Sure, what the hell.

I’ve given it a fair amount of thought over the past couple on months, and I believe Kamala Harris is the odds-on favorite to be the Democrat nominee for President in 2020.

No experience? She has more than Barack Obama did.

She comes from a huge state, and she will be funded by the limitless Croesus-like wealth of Silicon Valley and San Francisco.

She is young – certainly as compared to the “favorites” currently being peddled by the brainless idiots of the media.

She is a woman.

She is left enough to satisfy the Occasionally-Cortexed wing of the party.

AND SHE IS BLACK.

I wouldn’t bet against it. Bill winds things up with this:

I really don’t see anything or anyone who will even come close to her, at least among the Democrats. And, frankly, unless Trump can somehow finally deliver on his major promises, especially the wall, she’ll likely kick his ass, too.

Assuming Trump is even the nominee in the first place, rather than sitting in prison with all of his other administration hires by then.

THE FEDERAL GOOBERMINT MUST TAKE ACTION!!

Well, this would certainly explain a lot.

Cheese Is Addictive as Cocaine, Science Says
In the research, 500 participants were surveyed on their food cravings. During the study, meals containing cheese were the most sought-after, owing to the amount of dairy found in the dish.

The dishes, including pizza, ranked highly due to high levels of casein, which triggered the participants’ brain opiod receptors to offer a similar reaction to that of drug addiction.

Well, okay, I guess. Given my own inordinate fondness for cheese of every variety except Limburger, I won’t argue. Unfortunately, with the last paragraph, it’s pretty easy to see where this is headed:

“This is a first step towards identifying specific foods, and properties of foods, which can trigger this addictive response,” says co-author of the study, Nicole Avena. “This could help change the way we approach obesity treatment. It may not be a simple matter of ‘cutting back’ on certain foods, but rather, adopting methods used to curtail smoking, drinking and drug use.”

Anybody who thinks federal regulation, or an outright ban, will be long in coming is kidding themselves. After which I’ll no doubt be herded off to mandatory “treatment” in some government “recovery center” in very short order. On the bright side, hope is rekindled in the “Related stories” headline found in the margins of the “cheese=crack” article:

Eating Cheeseburgers Is Good for You, Science Says

All RIIIIGHT. Now you’re speaking my language, people.

I must say, in wandering through my post categories to make selections for this one, I was astonished to find a pre-existing “Cheese” category, although God only knows what I might have put in there over the years, or what possessed me to establish it in the first place. Coincidence? I THINK NOT.

A chat with Derb

Seems appropriate, seeing as how I mentioned him here last night and all.

Before settling in at his current home at VDare, Derbyshire spent years as the black sheep on Conservatism Inc, writing for National Review and Weekly Standard. Derb was to Conservatism Inc. was Larry Bird was to basketball or Eminem was to rap, a sort of reactionary Great White Hope in a sea of unevolved neocon cucks. Derb also wrote for the “kinda-sorta Alt Right” website TakiMag and hosts the longest running Dissident Right podcast on the internet: Radio Derb.

Derb was my and many others’ first exposure to truly reactionary ideas. Well, there was Pat Buchanan, I guess. Pat was a sort of a proto-Alt Right figure himself, but Buchanan was steeped in sentimentality and Christian traditionalism. Derb believed everything Pat Buchanan believed but was a lot more scientific and racist about it and without all the Jesus stuff.

But it was in 2009 with the release of his landmark bestseller We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism that Derbyshire laid out the scale of our problems: demographic decline of whites and our replacement by low-IQ Third Worlders, totalitarian egalitarianism running rampant in all our institutions, monumental wastes of resources in futile quests to close racial achievement gaps, and all the while, a cheery tone of Reaganist optimism coming from a Right who should be scared to death.

With the Left triumphing on all fronts, the Right with its head in the sand, and the whole damn system rigged against us, Derbyshire concluded that America, conservatism, and the West in general were basically doomed. Doomed to become a Brazil-style multicultural Third World hellhole, and there wasn’t a lot we could do about it.

But now we are ten years in the future and much has happened since. How does We Are Doomed hold up today?

All too well, I’m afraid. The man was—is—a true visionary.

We’re coming up on the tenth anniversary of your earth-shattering best seller We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism. Nearly a decade later, are you more or less convinced that we are in fact doomed?

Define “we.” As mortals we are of course all doomed; but that wasn’t what I was writing about. The first sentence in my book reads: “This book is addressed to American conservatives.”

Yes, small-government, restrained-foreign-policy, ordered-liberty American conservatism is not merely doomed, it’s dead and gone. We’re close to the point – maybe past it already, it’s hard to keep track – where the federal government can tell you which pronoun to use.

We’re in a shooting war in Niger, a place hardly any American could find on a map, or should need to. We have 26,000 troops stationed in Korea, and 13,000 in Italy for crying out loud. Gotta stop Mussolini!

Freedom of speech is being stamped out by the tech monopolies and universities, with the eager help of lefty judges. Freedom of association is a fading memory – killed by the Civil Rights acts. Small government? You looked at the federal budget lately?

Has anything happened in the last decade that you did not anticipate?

I got cancer.

Ouch. Nice to see he retains his sense of humor in the face of it, I suppose. Actually, John’s sense of humor—puckish, dry, intelligent, subtle—is on display several other places in this interview, which is entirely too damned short if you ask me. Most fascinating takeaway from the whole thing? The link to this:




The guy in the striped shirt kicked over the chair by Bruce Lee? That would be…wait for it, now…

John Derbyshire?!? MAN. I had no idea that clip existed until just now. Makes me wonder what the hell else this man might have gotten up to over the course of his, shall we say, eclectic career. Anyways, like I said, the interview is great, and I only wish it was longer. Who knows, maybe I’ll drop Derb a line care of VDare as he suggests at the end and see about doing one myself.

Update! Okay, so I found my curiosity piqued all to hell and gone over the Bruce Lee thing, poked around a bit, and found this in John’s website archive:

So I was sitting there reading when a young Chinese guy came in. Seeing that I was the only person in the lounge, he addressed me. “Do you speak English?” I said I did. “Know any martial arts?” I said I had taken a few lessons. “Want to be in a movie?” I asked him if it paid. “Sure. Seventy bucks a day.” (Hong Kong dollars, he meant — around US$12 at that time.) I said I was game.

“Good. Be outside the Miramar Hotel front entrance tomorrow morning, seven thirty.”

A minibus arrived and drove us out to the New Territories — that is, the countryside that stretches out back of urban Hong Kong forty miles or so to the Chinese border. (Beyond which Mao Tse-tung’s Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution was going through one of its nastier phases. Rafts of rotting corpses would occasionally float down the Pearl River past the colony.) Here there was a movie studio. We were led into a huge shed used for indoor sets, and spent the next two days filming fight scenes in that shed.

Bruce himself directed Meng Long Guo Jiang. He was on set all the time, setting up the fights, working out positions, talking to the lighting crews and the cameramen.

There was, by the way, no sound crew. Chinese movies at that time were shot without sound. The sound was dubbed in later. When you watch a Bruce Lee movie, you are not hearing Lee’s voice, though I think they might have inserted his qi-ai — the intimidating yells, grunts and howls he used when fighting — into the soundtrack of Meng Long Guo Jiang. The qi-ai sound like his, anyway.

In fact the first dubbing was always into Mandarin, and the on-screen lip syncing was to Mandarin words. Bruce, though fluent in English and Cantonese, could not speak Mandarin, so this was a constant vexation to him when filming, and probably the main reason he has very few speaking lines in his movies.

Bruce Lee’s presence was as striking in person as on screen. I have never seen a man who gave such an impression of concentrated energy. If he got animated when talking to you, he would make little springy skipping movements with his feet, as if warming up for a fight. When nothing much was happening, he would drop down and do one-arm finger-thumb push-ups at one side of the set, or have someone hold up a board he could practice high kicks on.

Just as a skilful schoolteacher knows how to get the class’s attention by speaking very softly, you were most aware of Bruce’s presence, and he was most intimidating, on the rare occasions his body was dead still. In the relaxed state, he was in constant motion. Crouching tiger, indeed.

Movie fight scenes are a devil of a thing to get right. We did everything a dozen times, levels of frustration and discomfort rising each time.

This was summer in the tropics, and if the place had any air conditioning, it wasn’t adequate. There were huge electric fans everywhere, but they had to be switched off for filming, or the actors’ hair would all be streaming out horizontally from their heads. Yet through the entire two days I was on the set, I never saw Bruce lose his temper, or display any negative emotion stronger than momentary mild annoyance. He was just as I had seen him on TV:  smiling, cracking jokes, smoothing out difficulties and differences, coaching, teasing, encouraging, cajoling.

I have a tall, lean physique, so he addressed me as “Slim.”

“Hey, Slim, let’s try that again — and this time look mean. You hate me, remember? I’m a runty obnoxious little Chink, just stole your woman, trashed your car and pissed in your beer. Whaddya gonna do to me? Huh? Whaddya gonna do? Come on …” (He spoke perfect idiomatic American English the whole time.)

The fight scenes were all improvised out of his head. I can say this authoritatively, as I got a chance to read one of the scripts. The entire section I was involved in — two days filming, though of course less than five minutes in the finished movie — was encompassed by four Chinese characters in the script:  Li da xi ren — “Lee strikes the Westerners.”

We had some visitors on the set those two days. Chuck Norris showed up, though goodness knows why, as his scenes, later in the movie, were filmed on location in Rome.

Bruce’s wife Linda also made an appearance at one point, with either one or both of the kids, I can’t remember. (Brandon, whom Bruce described as “the only blond-haired, blue-eyed Chinaman in California,” would have been five and a half at this point, Shannon just over two.)

If my very brief acquaintance with Bruce Lee is any fair grounds for judgment, he was a lively, witty, charming man who thoroughly enjoyed life, a gifted natural stage and screen performer, liked by everyone around him and dedicated to his art — his martial art, I mean. It was a tragedy he died so young.

There’s a whole lot more to this story—a WHOLE lot, the above excerpt is heavily abridged—and it’s all perfectly spellbinding. Honestly, you probably shouldn’t click the link if you don’t have some time on your hands, because I absolutely defy you not to read every word of it once you get started. A great story, well told by a gifted writer—hey, what’s not to like?

Grand Unification Theory

Sundance explains all.

First, any intellectually honest review must overlay the current political environment. In 2018 the scale of unchecked lawless behavior is a significant influence toward the differences we can expect from the last time Democrat/Marxists held congressional power. The term “Democrat-socialism”, in essence a Marxist approach, is now the dominant fuel within the professional DNC  political operations.

When the Democrats last held power in 2006, their actionable objective was toward a far-left, Saul Alinsky-type aggressive tone and influence; however, there was a need to couch that intention as they positioned Senator Barack Obama for the 2008 presidential election.

Secondly, it cannot be overstated how violent and confrontational the House of Representatives will be as soon as they are sworn in. They will work with an immediate purposeful intention. All political violence will be approved to attain their objectives. The recent behavior of Jim Acosta (CNN media), and ANTIFA toward Tucker Carlson, is now, and will be going forward, the new normal.

There will be extreme political violence.

In 2006 it was the SEIU and AFSCME union foot-soldiers who smashed windows, advanced upon polling places and engaged in the most severe examples of voter fraud and intimidation.  In 2018, with the help of uber-Alinsky DNC Chairman Tom Perez, that corrupt sentiment is now institutionalized within democrat-socialist political apparatus.  ANTIFA is now the DNC grassroots activist approach.

All true enough; Sundance also mentions the importance—erroneously downplayed by the losers on Black Tuesday—of the House and its Constitutionally-mandated control of the national purse strings. There’s plenty more I elided, all of which you should definitely read. But then we come to the truly crucial bit—which is revealing, telling, and damning.

Two other thoughts on this issue. First, you might remember when this massive spending, and the government takeover of healthcare, led to the Marxists losing the 2010 midterm election in a massive defeat. But do you remember what the democrats did in the lame-duck congress between November 2010 and January 2011?

Does the term “Porkulous” ring a bell?

While 63 democrat seats were lost in the November 2010 election (and six democrat senate seats), those exiting Marxists, despite just having suffered the worst defeat in almost 100 years, audaciously –and apologetically– voted in the December 2010 lame-duck session, to fully fund President Obama’s next two years in office. This was done by Speaker Nancy Pelosi specifically to block the incoming GOP wave from upending the priorities of the Obama administration in 2011. That was called the “Porkulous” spending bill; and the democrat-marxists didn’t give a snit about how it looked.

Now, did Speaker Paul Ryan or Senate Leader Mitch McConnell do anything as bold to fund and secure the budgetary priorities of President Donald Trump in this lame-duck?

No, UniParty.

There is a reason the Democrat-Marxists (an appellation I intend to start using from here on out instead of my old favorite “Democrat Socialists,”, seeing as how it’s more forthright, and more accurate) fight to the last drop of blood on even the most trivial issue, while the Repukes just can’t be bothered. Yes, I’m now officially blue in the face from saying it: it isn’t because the GOPe is “the Stupid Party.” It isn’t because they’re “incompetent” or “hapless.” IT IS BECAUSE THEY ARE CORRUPT: they are in cahoots, part of the Deep State team, fully bought-and-paid-for members of the Status Quo cabal. The Democrat-Marxists know if they fight, they win; the game is rigged from the git-go, and the Left Uniparty wing is willing to do real battle with the (putative) Right, at least partly in order to provide some useful cover for their “partners across the aisle.”

And so the game goes on, always with the same score at the end of each round: the government gets larger, more powerful, more intrusive, more unrestrained; the Constitution is further removed from relevance; the so-called “unalienable rights” of the American people are further eroded, the importance of the “consent of the governed” reduced to no more than a meaningless slogan; the idea of any check at all on the power of the bureaucracy becomes a bitter joke.

Sundance sums the whole mess up nicely, if depressingly:

Secondly, about the overall unilateral commitment and cunning historically displayed by the Marxists. They are so committed to the long-term view they are willing to sacrifice anything for the biggest, most consequential, advances toward their objectives. In 2010 the democrats killed their own “blue-dog” coalition to advance their ideological goals.

Within the 63 House seats the Marxists lost in that 2010 midterm election; they killed off the entire 40 member Bart Stupak coalition; the blue-dog caucus. Totally willing to sacrifice 40 seats to attain a generational ideological objective (ObamaCare); and they are about to step back into power a mere eight years later. Stunning when you think about it.

Few people have any idea just how bad these next two years are going to be. We are the normal people who don’t spend every moment of our day scheming, conniving, and developing plans to dismantle the lives of your freedom loving community and rebuild it as a collective society. For these political Marxists who are about to take power that’s all they do. Every moment of their existence they spend thinking about how to gain power and dominate, 24/7/365  that is all they do.

And that’s how the Hard Left won, and destroyed America That Was forever. I dunno, somehow it all puts me in mind of good ol’ George Hanson.




Piercing words.

Easy-peasy

All this confusion and angst over such a simple, obvious fact.

Two Princeton groups recently held an event celebrating menstruation where students were told that menstrual periods are not limited solely to women, and that people other than women can menstruate. However, the groups refused to comment or expand on this argument. Princeton feminist groups contacted by The College Fix also declined to discuss the issue.

At the recent “Menstruation Celebration,” hosted by Princeton Students for Reproductive Justice and Princeton Students for Gender Equality, the organizations were “urging people to stop referring to menstruation as a women’s issue, since transgender and non-binary people get periods as well.”

Menstruation, a monthly biological event in which the uterus sheds its lining if there is no embryo present, is widely understood by biologists and scientists to be a phenomenon that affects only females.

“Widely understood”? It is to laugh. Since the definition of “female” can be reduced to “homogametic (ie, two X chromosomes), ovaries, fallopian tubes, and a uterus,” then mentally-ill people such as “transgenders” and “nonbinaries” who possess those characteristics are, BY DEFINITION AND ACCORDING TO SCIENCE, female, and their fantasies, desires, and/or delusions be damned. The only—ONLY—exceptions would be true hermaphrodites, which are quite rare.

Why, oh why, do libtards hate Teh Science™ so?

Then we lapse into some real hilarity:

Neither Princeton Students for Reproductive Justice nor Princeton Students for Gender Equality responded to repeated requests for comment from The College Fix on the position that individuals other than women can menstruate. The Fix also asked the groups whether or not other topics commonly seen as “women’s issues,” such as abortion, should no longer be referred to as such.

Princeton is home to a wide array of women’s and feminist groups. The College Fix reached out to several of these organizations to see if they had differing opinions on menstruation being strictly a women’s issue. All eight organizations failed to comment, including the Princeton Association of Black Women, Princeton for Women in Politics, the Graduate Women of Color Caucus, Women’s Political Caucus, Wym’on Stage, and SpeakOut.

Well, naturally. You microaggressed ’em, dude. That always sends ’em screaming off to their safe spaces to curl up into a fetal ball and tremble for a few hours.

The umbrella organization for these feminist groups, the Princeton Women*s Center, has lately promoted LGBT ideology in its programming and events. This past October, the Women*s Center began coordinating two “Queering the Color Line” events each month to create “an affirming space for LGBTQIA Students of Color to meet and share a meal.”.

Explaining why the Women*s Center uses an asterisk rather than an apostrophe in its name, the organization writes on its website: “When you come upon an asterisk in your reading, you recognize it as a [sic] indication that there’s something more to learn. We use the asterisk to suggest that we are much more than our name implies: the Center is not just for women nor is it just about women. We welcome and engage persons of all genders here, including genderqueer, nonconforming, transgender folks, and cisgender men.”

Like I always say, you just can’t parody these goofballs anymore. Lucky for those of us who still occasionally try, though, they’re doing it themselves.

You got questions

Rhinier has answers.

Thought I’d pass along some answers that someone took the time to email me.

Here are some answers to your questions I hope you will at least find them thought provoking:

Q. Why are we afraid to stand up to our Government?
A. Because this Government is not ours, it’s theirs. Obama, Soros, Clintons, Bush, Comey 
Mueller, Rosenstein, Weissmann and thousands more. They own every agency, process and courthouse. You stand up alone and you will be cut down , NO mercy, NO rules at all. Remember Flynn, Ted Stevens, and Enron.

And if they can do it to those such as the above, who themselves are powerful, wealthy, and/or well-known, they can damned sure do it to you and me. That’s the nature of tyranny: they have the power and reach to make you suffer should you buck their authority, and no moral qualms at all about using it however and whenever they feel it’s necessary. This flexing of Superstate muscle serves a two-fold purpose, representing a win-win for the PTB: it disposes of any active opposition, and is an object lesson to others who may be unhappy about their plight, reinforcing their reluctance to take a stand.

Q. When will the people decide enough is enough?
A. Sadly, when they have no other choice. I do not advocate or preach violence, but the reality is this cannot be solved without conflict. I say this because the people who are in power in this country, will never peacefully surrender that power, and I mean never.

Q. Why do people think socialism/communism works?
A. Various reasons: for the recipient voter class, it does work for now. And they have not seen any reason to believe that it will every stop working. The government employee/voter class see this in much the same way and yes that means your teachers, your firemen, your police too; all three levels of government employees. For others it’s seems that the propaganda in schools and media and church is working. So the short answer is for a lot of people, socialism is great, at the expense of the producers. It seems that the only ones wise to this game are those of us who are being plundered.

And precious few of them, apparently. On the other hand, it may not necessarily be lack of awareness that keeps the suckers bent over and standing still for their buggering; revisit my addendum to Number One above for a hint.

Q. Why isn’t the Constitution followed?
A. Because it no longer exists. Even in the memory of the oldest people among us.  A man that is eighty years old still has no clue about the type of freedom of the first generation in the US. The republic died well over 150 years ago.  Why else would over half the states that formed the union wish to leave (so called civil war). So my answer is, no one anywhere can even imagine life in a constitutional republic. So, much to the dismay of Franklin, we did not keep it. I suppose it’s just too easy to vote other people’s property away from them and divide it up among ourselves.

Sobering stuff at best, but perfectly true, right down the line. And with that, we get two more additions to Ye Ode Blogrolle: NC Renegade Wes Rhinier, and John Wilder.

Reality bites bitten

Wahddya, some kinda science denier or something?

In yet another blatant attack on science, a newly-approved education guideline in the United Kingdom says that all genders can menstruate, not just girls.

The new guidelines from the Neighbourhoods, Inclusion, Communities, and Equalities Committee of the Brighton & Hove City Council advocate a “period positive approach” when talking about menstruation to students, an approach that basically teaches children the exact opposite of what actually happens, according to LifeSiteNews.

The guidelines state that students as young as age eight and nine will be taught “age and development appropriate period education within a planned programme of relationships and sex education.” It also calls for “single gender sessions” when “appropriate and with careful management” while suggesting that inclusive language when referring to “girls and women and others who have periods.”

As noted by LifeSiteNews, the cities of Brighton and Hove have been pushing an extreme transgender agenda for some time now. Back in October, the school released a “Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit” that compared not calling someone by their preferred pronoun to harassment while calling for “safeguarding procedures” for parents who refuse to endorse their child’s gender identity.

“In 2016, the Brighton & Hove City Council angered parents by sending them a letter telling them to ‘please support your child to choose the gender they most identify with,'” reports the outlet. “The letter went to parents with kids as young as four.”

The new guidelines echo the words spoken by Angela Ponce, the first trans Miss Universe contestant from Spain, who recently said that a woman does not have to have a vagina.

Well, that’s Once Great Britain for ya; thank goodness such an absurd, moronic thing could never happen here…uhh, that is…I mean, well, uhhh…

Oh.

While the Trump administration here in the United States has been fighting the transgender movement by disallowing them from the military and by recognizing gender by a person’s genitalia at birth, teachers still face harsh censoring if they so much as use the wrong pronoun when addressing a trans student.

Just this month, a teacher in Virginia lost his job because he refused to call a transgender student by their preferred pronoun.

Give him a tampon and tell him to stick it wherever he likes. Poor ol’ Alice Cooper must be feeling mighty embattled right about now.




How long before the Badthink Police catch up with this despicable hate-criminal, I wonder?

Expert opinion

Anybody who still buys into the Progressivist premise that the only sensible and proper way of running things is to allow “experts” to micromanage our lives for us—most especially, to plan our future according to their own stilted “vision” and half-bright assumptions—is a damned idiot.

As a scientific achievement, as a demonstration of cool nerve, or as an example of control of brain and muscle, cultivated to the point where it becomes instinctive, Wilbur Wright’s flight up the Hudson on October 4 is memorable. But the leap by which popular imagination flies to the interpretation that this performance establishes commercial supremacy of the aeroplane is purely fantastic. Emotion has run away with reason.

[…]

We do not query the interest or excellence of the Wrights’ mechanical achievement. There is no reason apparently why they should not vastly better any recorded performance—fly thousands of feet high, or hundreds of miles in distance. Our skepticism is only as to the utilitarian value of any present or possible achievement of the aeroplane. We do not believe it will ever be a commercial vehicle at all. We do not believe it will find any very large place in the world of sport. We do not believe its military importance is as great as is commonly supposed, or will extend (except accidentally) beyond the range of scouting and courier service. Even here it remains wholly indeterminate how much (except mutual destruction) can actually be accomplished by men in flying-machines, if other men in other flying-machines are trying to prevent the accomplishment. And even the attempt must always be limited by the absolute dependence of aerial navigation upon weather conditions which in most places and in average seasons exist during only a minor fraction of the time.

Emphasis mine, and sidesplittingly hilarious. Hidebound, arrogant “experts” who dismiss epoch-shattering developments only to be embarrasingly proved ass-backwards and wrong when their cherished assumptions are overtaken by creativity and innovation is an old, old story, of course. It’s applicable to a whole hell of a lot more than just aviation, too. As Novak says:

The airplane still had to prove itself in many ways. And respected people in respected publications were saying rather bluntly that not only would the airplane not be used for commercial purposes anytime soon, it would never be used for them at all. As the Literary Digest suggested, maybe airplanes were just novelties like the tightrope walker.

History would prove these people wrong. But history would also largely forget that there was ever a question that aircraft would zip around the skies transporting people and goods. There was nothing inevitable about the future, despite it always feeling that way—whether we’re talking about air travel, smartphones, or politics.

It isn’t even “inevitable” that we’ll HAVE a future in the first place, when you think about it. The one thing we ought to have learned by now is that, whatever the future may bring, it is unlikely in the extreme to look like anything even the most wild-eyed visionary nut among us could dream up. If you don’t believe it, go back and read some Heinlein or H Beam Piper. Marvel at the many things they got right, or were at least close…and then marvel just as deeply that, in most of the future worlds they so brilliantly crafted for us, people are still using paper as a primary means of communication, and computers are still printing out their calculations on it—laboriously, with much loud clattering, and sloooooowly.

We humans seem to have an immutable tendency to always assume that current conditions will hold forever, without change or adjustment, all historical evidence to the contrary. Assumptions of that precise nature are pretty much the primary basis of climate change hysteria, just to name one example—among those who ARE sincerely hysterical about it, rather than using it as a scam to pimp an anti-capitalist, anti-American agenda, anyway.

Don’t know how or where Novak ran across the old Engineering Magazine article quoted above, but it was a real find, and I’m very glad he shared it with us.

Straight dope

American elections, the envy of the entire world.

When Donald Trump was running for office, he raised the issue of fraudulent votes. As with everything else Trump has said, it was instantly attacked and ridiculed by the media. Since then, the idea has been dismissed by MSM journalists who have insisted that there have not been any cases of illegal voting.

Recently, though, the novel possibility of fraudulent votes in favor of aRepublican candidate has made the MSM do a 180o while reiterating that such things have never happened favoring Democratic candidates. As with many other topics, MSM journalists have blatantly lied.

Follows, a voluminous list of Democrat Socialist electoral fraud, corruption, and malfeasance, which is by no means whatsoever all-inclusive. As Villalobos concludes:

Keep in mind also that these are just a tiny portion of detected transgressions. How many more illegal acts have occurred that have gone unnoticed? After all,voting illegally is child’s play, with no checks and balances and a minimum of negative repercussions. Since Republican voters are almost always the victim and the Republican Party is without doubt the Stupid Party, this stomach-churning travesty will continue.

They aren’t the Stupid Party, and I really wish people would stop saying that. They’re active participants in a perennially rigged game, the Washington Generals of American politics, and this squalid state of affairs suits them just fine.

All aboard the Deep State railroad!

The one-way Lefty express to violence, anarchy, and civil war.

If you want a textbook example of wrongful prosecution of a man who should never have been charged with a crime, just look at the case of retired Army Lt. Gen. and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

New documents released Friday by Special Counsel Robert Mueller make it clear that Flynn is a victim of an overzealous team of prosecutors absolutely desperate to show that President Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.

The new court filings provide yet more proof that Mueller will stop at almost nothing and run over anyone who gets in his way as he tries to build a case against the president after 19 months of his anti-Trump crusade.

Mueller doesn’t really care about Flynn. He wants to use Flynn to destroy Donald Trump.

Plain and simple, the information made public Friday shows that the FBI lied to Flynn to ensnare him in the crime of making a false statement, even though Flynn did not lie.

The new documents show without a doubt that Flynn never should have been prosecuted. They show that even the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn about his contacts with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak concluded Flynn was telling the truth. But Flynn’s statements about those contacts later became the basis of the charge against him of lying to the FBI.

During the transition as President-elect Trump prepared to take office, Flynn was the designated national security adviser for the incoming president. As a legitimate part of his job, he had conversations with Ambassador Kislyak. These discussions were perfectly legal.

The Obama administration secretly recorded the phone calls, illegally unmasked Flynn’s name, and then illegally leaked the information to the media. This gave Director James Comey’s FBI a vacuous excuse to contact Flynn to set a trap.

Read it all. I only wish I could say it was shocking. It isn’t. It’s Überstate business as usual, nothing more. And it won’t be stopped short of gibbets, pitchforks and torches—and Deep State heads on pikes, their bodies swinging en masse from Mordor On The Potomac lampposts.

To extend that last analogy: it would be well to remember that no one on the Council Of Elrond suggested “negotiating” with Sauron, or “investigating” him; they knew that such would be no more than a half-measure, a cowardly stall. No, the Dark Tower had to be brought crashing down in utter ruin in order to forever eliminate the horror and evil at its core. Frodo didn’t sally forth to Mordor to find “common ground” or “compromise” with anybody.

Yeah, I know, analogies are never perfect and all that. But you’ll have to forgive my weakness for LOTR ones; they’re a hoary, well-established old habit of mine.

A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma

Well, this is certainly…confusing.

“NJ woman”? One of those real-housewives-of-New-Jersey types? No, this is one of the real housewives of the new New Jersey:

A Secaucus woman has been accused of enslavement for allegedly forcing a Sri Lankan national to work for nine years without pay, federal prosecutors said.

Ah, a “Secaucus woman”: That narrows it down. Any chance of a name?

Alia Imad Faleh Al Hunaity, 43, was arraigned Wednesday in federal court in Camden and charged with forced labor, alien harboring and marriage fraud…

What did “Sri Lankan nationals” do to deserve being enslaved by these crazy out-of-control “Secaucus women”?

America’s newspapers would rather go out of business than tell you anything approximating to the reality of the situation – that this is a wealthy woman from Araby who would like to live as she does back in Saudi or the Emirates, which means importing the indentured servants she enjoys back in the old country. A third of the population of Saudi Arabia are “foreign workers”, mostly laboring in agriculture or domestic service. Just shy of a million are Sri Lankan. Because Saudis are the laziest buggers on the planet, and, having been enriched by oil, have no desire to make so much as a cup of tea for themselves.

So Ms al-Hunaity brought over her servant, enslaved her, and, in order to evade US immigration law, entered into a fake lesbian marriage…

I have written for years about the internal contradictions of the rainbow coalition – Amsterdam’s once famous “Homo Hotel” relaunching itself as a Muslim enterprise, the most fierce opposition to gay marriage in the Aussie referendum coming from the most Muslim constituencies, the orientational cleansing of London’s East End…

But you have to hand it to the more enterprising Mohammedans: Secure in the knowledge that Allah will cut them some slack, they’re willing to do whatever it takes – including tying the same-sex knot in order to import their slaves. One day the last elderly Episcopalian gays in San Francisco will notice that every other couple in the Castro District now seems to be a chap called Mohammed and the fetching young Bangladeshi houseboy who never leaves the house.

Well, they can comfort themselves by waxing even more indignant over how horrible those damned Christians are, I guess.

I can only doff my cap in awe to the faux-lesbo Muslim bint, though: she seems to have worked out exactly which of the Lefty pieties would be of most use as a prop in order to hornswoggle idiot American liberals into tacitly endorsing one of the uglier aspects of Islamic culture—a sin for which, had she been a Southerner, those same libtards would gladly have seen her publicly lynched, then rent asunder by wolves.

Your government schools at work

Not at education, but indoctrination.

“And I started in Kindergarten. What a great place to start. It was where I was teaching.

So, I was the most comfortable there,” Pam Strong said at the conference, attended by LifeSiteNews…

Strong, who is in an open relationship with another woman and who has been a teacher for about five years, focused her workshop on what she called the “power of conversation” for promoting LGBTQ issues in an elementary classroom.

She began her talk by relating how she reacted the first time one of her students called another student ‘gay’ as a putdown.

“With [the principal’s] encouragement, we decided that I would go from class to class and talk about what ‘gay’ means, what does ‘LGBTQ’ mean, what do ‘I’ mean,” she told about 40 attendees, all educators, at her workshop.

Strong related how she began with the junior kindergarten class.

“And I read a [pro-gay child’s] book [King and King], and I started to realize that conversations can be very difficult, and they can have the most power when they are the most difficult.”

Mommyunderground responds:

Four-year-olds do not need to know the perversion of homosexual relationships.

Four year olds don’t need to know about sex at all.

Pam Strong is literally boasting about how she leads children astray and is backed by her principal.

But the story gets worse.

And, incredible as it seems, it does. It really, really does. RPJ says:

I will, absolutely, stand by the right of consenting adults to do what they want in private. Noneofmybusiness. But this…this is grooming, straight-out.

Agreed, completely. But this is what the government schools do, and it has been for a long, long time.

“The Good Censor”

It’s an oxymoron. Ain’t no such thing. Most especially not when it’s a too-powerful multinational conglomerate run by smug, self-righteous “liberals.”

An internal company briefing produced by Google and leaked exclusively to Breitbart News argues that due to a variety of factors, including the election of President Trump, the “American tradition” of free speech on the internet is no longer viable.

Despite leaked video footage showing top executives declaring their intention to ensure that the rise of Trump and the populist movement is just a “blip” in history, Google has repeatedly denied that the political bias of its employees filter into its products.

But the 85-page briefing, titled “The Good Censor,” admits that Google and other tech platforms now “control the majority of online conversations” and have undertaken a “shift towards censorship” in response to unwelcome political events around the world.

Read all of it—if you can get through it all without puking, that is. And if you’re looking for a viable alternative, let me once again recommend Duck Duck Go most heartily. It’s just about the only search engine I use anymore, and it’s great.

UNEXPECTED!

Repeat the Democrat-Socialist mantra after me: there is no election fraud, there IS no election fraud, there IS NO election fraud.

NORTH CAROLINA—Election fraud has been suspected in North Carolina’s 9th congressional district as Russian president Vladimir Putin emerged victorious in the contest Friday.

Putin gave an acceptance speech in Congress, but some still allege the election may have been tampered with. They cite the fact that some of the ballots looked suspicious, as well as that Vladimir Putin is the president of Russia and wasn’t even on the ballot. Those who support Putin have waved away these concerns, stating that “Putin rules, America drools.”

“I assure you, this was 100% legitimate,” Putin told reporters. “I got 154% of the vote, fair and square.” Puzzled congresspeople claim they have no recourse, and as such must accept the Russian president into Congress. “Let’s not jump to conclusions. He’s got the benefit of the doubt—innocent until proven guilty,” President Trump said.

It’s satire, natch—OR IS IT?!?

Good women: gone

Just walk away.

This is not a debate. This is not me being snarky or sarcastic. It is a very REAL fact men are facing today when it comes to marriage – that the only younger women out there to date and potentially marry up are all brainwashed, leftist, NPC women. They ALL vote democrat. They ALL are feminists. They ALL put their career above everything else. They ALL have crippling debts. They ALL have dubious careers. And to any man who takes having a wife and forming a family seriously, these women are simply unqualified for the job. This isn’t to say literally “all” women are like this (there are engineers, accountants, and traditional women), but the statistics are so skewed, so bad, there is effectively no choice for most men today. I roughly estimate less than 5% of the female population are conditioned AND CAPABLE of being a wife an mother, which falls incredibly short of the 82% of men who wish to marry. Ergo, you can have your Ford in any color you want, as long as it’s black. And most men today can have wife as long as she’s an NPC leftist.

But did you ever wonder how women became so standardized, common, democrat, and (ultimately) boring? Did you ever wonder why there’s truly NO diversity in thought, life-goals, and life-philosophy among young women? Did you ever wonder why ALL of them want a career, an education, a party-lifestyle, shoes, handbags, and none of them want a husband or children? Well, allow me to ask you a question:

How many trillions did you spend training and programming women to be good wives and mothers?

The reason I ask this question is because while it seems absurd (why would you spend any resources programming women to be anything?), trillions have, in fact, been spent on programming, training, and ultimately indoctrinating women into becoming NPC leftists.

The K-College education industry alone has spent trillions of dollars over the past 50 years indoctrinating women to become men, putting their careers ahead of family, their educations ahead of individuals, and their politics ahead of love. Certainly the lion’s share of all education budgets since the 1960’s has been dedicated towards actual education. But if you look at the feminist indoctrination young girls received in K-College to put their careers above all else, you can in an accounting-like-sense attribute at least a couple trillion towards a clear and obvious intent to make women want to be wage-slaves, while belittling, even criminalizing being a wife and a mother.

While trillions of actual dollars have been invested in turning women into NPC, leftist, worker drones, what about the trillions of human hours also invested in conditioning women to become NPC leftists? From teachers to guidance counselors to professors to government PSA’s to media to women’s magazines to women’s studies departments to Jezebel and XOJane to even your own parents, it’s impossible to calculate how many millions of women (and men) spent thousands of hours of their lives, promoting and propagandizing hundreds of millions of women over the past 50 years to abandon being wives and mothers and instead be good, little, obedient, debt-laden careerist NPC democrats. Matter of fact, I can’t think of a single larger expenditure of time in all of the US that comes even close to the resources we’ve spent conditioning women to become NPC leftists. There has never been such a large, nation-wide, institution-wide push to form, program, and ultimately mold a people into something the powers that be want.

And I don’t even know how to begin to measure the total resources spent by media, marketing, and advertisers to sell women the “empowered-don’t-need-no-man-brave-executive” image all so women can buy $5,000 Prada handbags, $10,000 Chanel shoes, and $250,000 masters degree. Be it movies showing the strong independent woman, or Silicon Valley fawning over the latest female CEO hire, or all of the MSM worshiping Hillary Clinton during the election, the entire entertainment/media/social-media world only reinforces to women today that the ONLY thing that matters is your career, your leftist politics, and your feminism. Being a wife or a mother doesn’t even come up on the radar.

Now I could go on citing other instances where resources have been purposely spent on conditioning women to become NPC’s, but my larger point is how much has been spent on conditioning women to become good wives? How many trillions in education budgets have been spent on teaching women to be good mothers? And what institutions of our society (government, educational, media, corporate, etc.) actively promote motherhood and wifery?

And the answer is “none.” Not one cent, not one second, NOT EVEN BY THE PARENTS OF WOMEN THEMSELVES, is spent preparing, educating, explaining, or conditioning young women to be wives and mothers.

Of course not. Quite the opposite, in fact: they’re trained to think of marriage, motherhood, and family as stifling drudgery, unfulfilling and frustrating, the very next-of-kin to literal, outright slavery itself. This did NOT happen by accident:

The sad truth is like sausage, rolls of sod, reams of blank white paper, most women have been purposely conditioned to become mass-produced, boring, unmentionable, unnoteworthy, borg-like NPC leftists. It benefits the democrat party through votes. It benefits the government through increased taxes (both via increased rates AND having women working and paying taxes as well). And it benefits the media/corporate/college/materialist industries as women spend their money on trinkets, bobbles, handbags, and Masters in Social Work degrees. But it will NEVER benefit a husband, children, a family, or loved ones. And I’m not here to tell you some kind of “comeuppance” story, where women in their late 40’s hit menopause and ask “where have all the good men gone” while cuddling their cats.

Personally, I’m glad I’m old and out of all that myself.

Murder and mayhem

And impeachment too, as part of the Summer Of Hate.

One result of the Obama years was a rise in black violence, peaking with series of BLM murder sprees set off by the White House. From the 2010 election forward, Team Obama had been working to get their voters angry, hoping that would result in good election results in 2012 and 2014. The trouble was those angry blacks thought it was authentic and they expected something to happen. When it did not happen they decided to take matters into their own hands. The result was a summer of BLM murder and mayhem.

Will something like that be in the cards for the summer of 2019? It’s hard to know, but the Democrats take the House in January and they are showing few signs of restraint. They toned it down a bit in the election in order to not scare the remaining whites in their coalition, but they seem to be determined to go full crazy once in power. Maybe it is just a pose. Perhaps they are hoping a well choreographed bit of theater is enough to satiate the howling mobs of their coalition. Maybe they have unleashed forces they cannot control.

On the other hand, Trump has been a cunning political animal, even if he has been all thumbs when it comes to governance. He clearly thinks having Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi as foils is good for his re-election campaign. That means he will be doing everything he can to poke that hornet’s nest. The stage is set for a year of NeverTrump loons stoking the impeachment fires, while the steam whistles in conservative talk radio and cable TV blow full blast making sure the red hats are fully engaged in the fight.

The trouble with the future is it is unpredictable, so how all this unfolds cannot be known in advance. Most likely, the Democrats have not yet worked out how to proceed and Team Trump is a circus of confusion. Still, the ingredients are in place for a very ugly year and when the Left gets ugly, it always means bloodshed. Now that those Antifa mobs no longer have Richard Spencer to chase around, they will need to do something. Odds are, it means attacking red hat wearing Trump supporters in the coming summer of hate.

Oh, I think we can count on that much, for sure and at the very least. But the real coming-attractions black pill is in the comments:

Trump can’t fire Mueller; only the Attorney General can fire him. Trump should have accepted Sessions’ resignation immediately after he recused himself from the Russia investigation. I had some hope that Matthew Whitaker was the outsider brought in by Trump to fire Mueller and end the investigation, but it’s clear that’s not going to happen. And Trump’s nominee to replace Sessions, William Barr, is a swamp creature with extensive experience in the CIA and the DoJ. He’s a GOPe company man. Mueller’s clown show of an investigation will continue unabated.

Trump will likely be indicted in 2019 by the US Attorney’s office in Manhattan for campaign finance violations. (The US Attorney for SDNY in Manhattan was appointed by Jeff Sessions.) These are felony charges with the potential for jail time. Like the Mueller investigation, the indictment is BS, but it will further cripple Trump’s presidency. I won’t be surprised if Trump resigns in exchange for a full pardon for himself and his family from Pence. Soft coup completed.

Trump took on the establishment but failed to install a loyal leader to keep the careerists at the DoJ under wraps, and now they’ve won. It’s game over for Trump–he’s finished. The Democrats in the House will hound him for the next two years. He’ll get no meaningful support from the Republican establishment. He’ll be indicted in 2019 and will either resign in early 2020 or will lose badly in his bid for 2020. Sessions will publish a memoir and will emerge as a sort of folk hero to the left, rather like Comey. What a shit show.

Z seems a lot more sanguine about the likelihood of impeachment than I am, and the idea that going “full crazy” might be “just a pose” for the Democrat-Socialist loons seems to me little short of absurd at this point—when, especially over the last two years, have they been anything but?

The comment excerpted above, unfortunately, is dead on, with the part I bolded being the key to understanding the whole sordid mess. What a shit show indeed.

Impeachment BINGO update! It’s all about the hamstringing and obstruction.

Since Robert Mueller and his revanchist inquisitors filed their sentencing memoranda on the President’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, the Democrats and their friends in the legacy media have been squealing with undisguised glee. They clearly believe that it marks the beginning of the end for an “illegitimate” presidency. Never mind that the filings contain no evidence of criminal collusion between the Trump campaign and any foreign entity, an odd omission for a “Russia Probe.” Forget that payments of hush money to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal aren’t in and of themselves illegal. Trump’s enemies believe that impeachment is now inevitable.

And they’re right.

But this has nothing to do with the ridiculous Mueller probe. That farcical “investigation” is, and always has been, nothing but a stalking horse. The event that guaranteed Trump’s impeachment was the November election in which the Democrats “harvested” a majority in the House. Nancy Pelosi discouraged the use of the “I” word by her accomplices during the final months of the midterms, but there was never any doubt that it would be the number one item on the Democrat agenda if she managed to get her hands on the Speaker’s gavel again. Nor does Pelosi much care that Mueller hasn’t uncovered anything resembling “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

It isn’t really about “getting” Trump per se, although I’m sure at least some of them think they can. It’s about ending the Trump presidency by other means, de facto instead of de jure. This is nothing more than the Deep State fighting back as hard as it can, by any means it can conjure up. And since Americans voted for exactly that on Black Tuesday, I can’t say their newfound confidence—their newly-restored arrogance, more accurately—is at all misplaced. It all comes down to this:

Alright, is it really plausible that the payoffs to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal were somehow within the bounds of the law? Yep. To begin with, such payments aren’t a crime at all — and they certainly don’t reach the level of a “high crime.” According to the law, they are just as legal as paying these two people to be quiet about Trump’s affinity for fast food. Nor does it rise to that level even if candidate Trump directed Cohen to make the payments and the cash came out of campaign funds. This is not, of course, what we are hearing from bloviating political hacks like New York Democrat Jerrold Nadler, who claims that such actions are impeachable:

They would be impeachable offenses. Whether they’re important enough to justify an impeachment is a different question.… Certainly, they’re impeachable offenses, because, even though they were committed before the President became President, they were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office.

Fraudulently obtaining office? What is Nadler talking about? This novel legal concept has no basis in statutory or constitutional law. Nor is there any such offense mentioned in the Mueller sentencing memo. Even the New York Times seems a little befuddled by the charge, which it discusses in a piece titled: “Prosecutors Effectively Accuse Trump of Defrauding Voters. What Does It Mean?” Powerline’s Paul Mirengoff suggests, “It may mean that the prosecutors haven’t found a crime, but are still pissed off that Trump won the election.”

Once again: BINGO.

War on Christmas

Yes, Virginia, it’s real.

We hear the stories every year: the ACLU suing small towns over Nativity displays, “holiday tree” lightings, colleges banning religious icons, storefronts wishing us an empty “Happy Holidays,” Lena Dunham being Lena Dunham.

Yet, the moment our ears catch wind of the Left’s all-too-apparent “War on Christmas,” the mainstream media and their “useful idiots” in late-night comedy are already roasting us on an open fire before any of us can say “partridge in a pear tree.” Instead of turtle doves and golden rings, we get gaslights and courtroom subpoenas.

Clutch not your candy canes, though. If the Puritans couldn’t do it, if the French Revolutionaries couldn’t do it, if the Nazis couldn’t do it, if the Soviets couldn’t do it, if CBS couldn’t do it, then the party of scrooges will certainly never rid the world of the joy that is “Christmas.” So long as we have Christ, Christmas will always follow. In the meantime, however, let’s all pull up a chair, sip on some hot cocoa, roast up some chestnuts, and ring in the season with a few laughs over the Left’s sorry attempts to transform Christmas into a snowflake’s wonderland.

One of the listed epic fails occurred right here in Harlotte, NC, for whatever it’s worth. But it ain’t my favorite one, if “favorite” is the right word for such a stinking mound of despicable shitlib garbage. This one is:



Further explanation:

According to the Left, Santa can neither be fat nor be a white male, but he can be in a gay relationship with a black husband. Released in October by Harper’s Design, the book “Santa’s Husband” tells the incredible story of “a black Santa Claus and his white husband who both live in the North Pole.”

Written by Daniel Kibblesmith of the “Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” the book was intended to be a parody to mock conservatives.

Nothing they won’t ruin, nothing they won’t keep their filthy mitts off of, nothing they won’t attempt to warp, pervert, and degrade. Nothing they’ll leave untouched and unsullied, nothing they won’t politicize and smear with shit. Abolutely nothing. So with that in mind, I just have to ask: is it time to start shooting them yet?

If not, why not?

Momentum

It’s all one way—the WRONG way.

The momentum in this nation is toward collectivism, toward Islamisation, toward obliteration and perhaps even genocide. These were once buzzwords of alarmism; today they are recognition of fact openly avowed and promoted in some circles.

You can defend yourself, hunker down against the roving bands of marauders, the government goons, the tax collectors and the politically correct, but in order to effect change, to address the crisis of culture and the republic, you have to get out into the street. This is the truth and will remain so until you do, or do not. I have been banging this drum for a long time. I have led efforts on the streets of D.C. and owing to my lack of leadership, I was largely alone. I have endured criticism for the stupidity of this point of view. But, it is still true. It is true in France, Hungary and even places like Armenia and Iran. Britain will soon be forced to recognize this truth if they expect to break free of the EU.

Globalism is slavery and the national systems that exist around the world are weighted toward globalism. Globalists have put a lot of money into the police state, forcing globalism on the world to wipe away nationalism. They have financed the drive toward migration to destroy nationalism, to enforce Islamism which is eminently compatible with slavery and paternalism. Only rabid nationalism with an active populace can reverse the trend toward globalism and the slavery it requires.

Of course, Americans will wait for some calamity, some moment in time to make their move, but one thing is absolutely true: There will never be another free national election held in America. The weakness of voting laws was shown in neon bright lights and it led to nothing. Outright theft of elections was not enough. As we wonder “What will it finally take?” we sit silently polishing our weapons instead of lacing up our boots.

However sad and depressing, it’s understandable, really. Nobody wants to die alone, going down on their very doorstep in a hail of gunfire, for nothing: falling one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle, as the saying goes.
