“Resist, Wake Up, Stop Obeying”

A haunting voice of warning from humanity’s dark but never-distant past.

Vera Sharav was only 3 years old when her world collapsed.

She and her family were chased out of Romania and herded into a concentration camp in Ukraine during World War II, where they were left to wait, and starve.

“The cloud of death was always there,” Sharav told The Epoch Times.

After three years at the camp, she was rescued in 1944, she said.

“My mother got wind that a few orphans would be transported out of the camp, so she lied and said I was an orphan to save my life, and that’s how I wound up leaving,” Sharav said.

While on a train to the Port of Constanta, Romania, where there were three boats awaiting to take groups of people to Palestine, she befriended a family. However, upon arrival, she found herself assigned a boat with other orphan children that would separate her from the family with whom she felt she could trust. So she rebelled.

“No matter what, I could not be convinced to get on that boat,” she said. “Miraculously, in the end, they gave in to me.”

Seasick, she fell asleep that night, only to wake up to find that the boat with the orphans had been torpedoed by who she said she found out decades later to have been the Russians.

Though she carried guilt for having survived, she was grateful she resisted because that resistance kept her alive, she said.

“I do not obey authority, and it saved my life.”

DAMN, but I love that quote.

These memories returned in 2020 during the web of COVID-19 restrictions that spun out of control with the help of media propaganda, she said.

“So now, when people are obeying authority mindlessly, giving up their rights to make decisions about their own lives and what goes into their own bodies, I think back to that time,” she said.

Under the Nazi regime, Sharav said, medicine was weaponized, as it has been today.

Though the Jews were the primary target, she said, the first medically murdered victims were disabled German infants and children under the age of 3.

Waitwaitwaitait, you mean to tell me the Nazis were fans of Margaret Sanger and her evil eugenics plot? Why, I’m shocked—SHOCKED! Next, you’ll be telling me that there’s gambling going on here or something.

Genocide isn’t new to the United States, Sharav said, as it was Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court Oliver Wendell Holmes who voted in favor of the 8-1 majority opinion in the 1921 case Buck v. Bell, which upheld the Virginia Sterilization Act of 1924 and the forced sterilization of Carrie Buck, who was alleged to be mentally defective.

Holmes said it would be better to prevent the mentally disabled from being born than to allow them to “sap the strength of the state” or “let them starve for their imbecility.”

“The principle that sustains compulsory vaccinations is broad enough to cover cutting Fallopian tubes,” the justice wrote in his opinion. “Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”

Carrie Buck, however, was never actually mentally disabled, Sharav said.

“Arguments for eugenics are always built on a lie,” Sharav said. “But it’s an ideology that continues to poison public health policies.” And he blames this type of thinking for the medical decisions that ultimately contributed to Grace’s (daughter of Sharav’s business partner Scott Schara—M) death.

“Look at what Big Pharma is doing now to children, aggressively pursuing them to be jabbed when they aren’t at risk at all from COVID-19,” she said.

It’s a slippery slope that—with the help of advanced technology—society is sliding down rapidly compared to the snail’s pace that it took for Hitler to implement his “Final Solution,” Schara said.

“We’re headed there exceptionally fast,” Schara said. “Today, the ‘Final Solution’ is the reduction of the entire human population under the ‘Sustainable Agenda’ of Agenda 2030.”

It’s hard for many to fathom that an elite few would conspire to cause widespread harm, Sharav said.

“People will say, ‘They made a mistake; it was an accident.’ But no, the elite, just like the Nazis, have this arrogance in which they believe they are superior and therefore entitled to rule the rest of us because they think we are inferior,” Sharav said.

Which makes it not just urgent, but absolutely, positively imperative that said “elite” be given a lesson in the necessity of maintaining a healthy fear of us which they will never, ever forget, without further ado or procrastination.

Hot blue-on-blue action!

SO. This Federale gun-grabber was going door-to-door and didn’t…ahh, hell, I’ll just let BCE run down the backstory for y’all.

Back on July 21st, my Brohiem and Fellow Deplorable Art Sido poasted about an ATF bunch of fucking ragbag neo-Gestapo/STASI motherfuckers who showed up at some poor shlubs house asking to see his weapons…Apparently, the shit be going down across the board so as that ALL of us purchasing -any- firepower right now?

So, that being said, seems that being emboldened by their apparent success, unlike dude that Arthur poasted about HERE, THIS particular FedFucker Pole-Smoker didn’t bother to notify the local county-mounties. And as such?

Well, I’ll let the vidya speak for itself:

And I’ll do likewise.

 

 

 

Big Country says it’s one of the funniest videos ever, and I can’t gainsay him on that. This one truly has it all, most especially when the proned-out Fed starts bleating about having a “medical condition,” immediately sequeing into panicky whimpers of “I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” as the local 5-0 are jumping around on his back, grinding his mug into steaming asphalt as they ignore his piteous pleas and get on with roughly rasslin’ the shiny bracelets onto his wrists. Hats off to this jackbooted Federale thug for a note-perfect aping of Eric Garner’s classic original performance.

Trump under fire

To stand Sherman’s famous quote on its head: If nominated, he won’t be allowed to run. If he runs, he won’t be allowed to win. If he wins, he won’t be allowed to serve. If he serves, he won’t be allowed to survive the experience. As I’ve said before, Trump’s smartest move at this point would be to buy himself an isolated Caribbean island, establish a secure perimeter, install some crew-served weapons, post well-armed guards under shoot-to-kill-on-sight orders, and hie himself thither with a quickness. He did what he could for the betterment of his nation and his people, an abominable crime for which the vicious, foaming-at-the-mouth Leftard rabble will never, ever forgive him. The recent godawful J6 farce is but a foretaste, a mere sample of what they have in mind for the poor man. No reasonable person could blame him if he just washed his hands of the whole sorry mess and dedicated his remaining years to seeing to the needs, happiness, and physical security of himself and his family from here on out.

The people who really run the United States of America have made it clear that they can’t, and won’t, if they can help it, allow Donald Trump to be president again. In fact, they made this clear in 2020, in a series of public statements. Simply for quoting their words in an essay for The American Mind, I was mercilessly mocked and attacked. But they were quite clear. Trump won’t be president at noon, Jan. 20, 2021, even if we have to use the military to drag him out of there.

If the regime felt that strongly back then, imagine how they feel now. But you don’t have to imagine. They tell you every day. Liz Cheney, Trump’s personal Javert, has said that the 45th president is literally the greatest threat facing America today—greater than China, than our crashing economy, than our unraveling civil society.

That’s rhetoric, of course, but it isn’t merely that. It’s safer, and generally more accurate, to assume that your adversaries mean what they say. If you doubt this, ask yourself: When was the last time they acted more moderately than they talk?

And just what is so terrible about Trump anyway? I get many of his critics’ points, I really do. I hear them all the time from my mother. But even if we were to stipulate them all, do Trump’s faults really warrant tearing the country apart by shutting out half of it from the political process?

Love him or hate him, during Trump’s presidency, the economy was strong, markets were up, inflation was under control, gas prices were low, illegal border crossings were down, crime was lower, trade deals were renegotiated, ISIS was defeated, NATO allies were stepping up, and China was stepping back (a little). Deny all that if you want to. The point here is that something like 100 million Americans believe it, strongly, and are bewildered and angered by elite hatred for the man they think delivered it.

Nor was Trump’s record all that radical—much less so than that of Joe Biden, who is using school-lunch funding to push gender ideology on poor kids, to cite but one example. Trump’s core agenda—border protection, trade balance, foreign restraint—was quite moderate, both intrinsically and in comparison to past Republican and Democratic precedent. And that’s before we even get to the fact that Trump neglected much of his own agenda in favor of the old Chamber of Commerce, fusionist, Reaganite, Conservatism, Inc., agenda. Corporate tax cuts, deregulation, and bombing Syria: These are all things Trump’s base doesn’t want, but the oligarchs desperately do, which Trump gave them. And still they try to destroy him.

Again, why? I think it’s because, while Trump’s core MAGA agenda is decidedly not outside the historic bipartisan mainstream, it is well outside the present regime’s core interests. Our rulers’ wealth and power rise with open borders, trade giveaways, and endless war. Trump, at least in principle, and often in practice, threatens all three. The old America—the one in which Republicans cared about the heartland and weren’t solely valets to corporate power, Democrats were pro-worker and anti-war, and Bill Clinton and The New York Times could advocate border security—is in the process of being replaced, if it hasn’t already been, by one in which there is only one acceptable opinion on not just these, but all other issues.

Anti-Trump hysteria is in the final analysis not about Trump. The regime can’t allow Trump to be president not because of who he is (although that grates), but because of who his followers are. That class—Angelo Codevilla’s “country class”—must not be allowed representation by candidates who might implement their preferences, which also, and above all, must not be allowed. The rubes have no legitimate standing to affect the outcome of any political process, because of who they are, but mostly because of what they want.

Complaints about the nature of Trump are just proxies for objections to the nature of his base. It doesn’t help stabilize our already twitchy situation that those who bleat the loudest about democracy are also audibly and visibly determined to deny a real choice to half the country. “No matter how you vote, you will not get X”—whether X is a candidate or a policy—is guaranteed to increase discontent with the present regime.

People I have known for 30 years, many of whom still claim the label “conservative,” will no longer speak to me—because I supported Trump, yes, but also because I disagree on trade, war, and the border. They call not just my positions, but me personally, unadulterated evil. I am not an isolated case. There are, as they say, “many such cases.” How are we supposed to have “democracy” when the policies and candidates my side wants and votes for are anathema and can’t be allowed? How are we supposed to live together with the constant demonization from one side against the other blaring 24/7 from the ruling class’s every propaganda organ? Why would we want to?

More to the point: How are we supposed to get through the next two and a half years?

Depends entirely on how we answer a couple of simple questions: Do we intend to prevail? Or will we continue to settle for merely slip-sliding along, scuttling about with our heads carefully ducked down and eyes averted, quietly yielding the battered remnants of our liberty and our self-respect, hoping to escape the notice of the loathsome, brutish Power that seeks only our subjugation and, ultimately, our demise? Do we carry on as cooperative junior partners in our own degradation and abuse, or will we at long last rise up on our hind legs like men and say Enough!

Speaking strictly for myself and absolutely no one else, I see but one feasible way of getting through the next phase of this rapidly escalating conflict more or less intact. Our survival depends on a strategy that might best be expressed in the idiom of attitude and comportment: Boastfully. Aggressively. Obnoxiously, obstreperously, and ruthlessly.

The only way we get through the next two and a half years is NOT to draw in our fangs as we always have, but to bare them as menacingly as we can possibly manage. It should be made abundantly clear to our adversaries that, far from feeling either reluctance or dread at the prospect, our most burning desire has become to sink those fangs deeply into their flesh and sinew—to rend, tear, and gnash at them until we are bathed head to toe in their very life’s blood.

Figuratively speaking, of course. No need to close bodily with the filthy swine when we have such a wealth of projectile weapons at our disposal, right?

Henceforth, no more mincing about on tiptoe; from now on, we swagger. Speak softly? Whatever the hell for, when there are so many big sticks for us to swing at their empty skulls just lying around? Be it hereby resolved: As of today, we no longer ASK, nicely or any other wise. We TELL, in no uncertain terms.

Anton asks “why would we want to” live cheek by jowl with our tormentors? Frankly, we don’t. Nor should we. That’s no more than right, meet, and just. They don’t like us, they don’t respect us, they don’t “get” us. Fine and well, so stipulated, whatevs. Now understand me, and understand me well: we are under no obligation to care whether they do or do not. At this time, in this place, our sole obligation, our sole allegiance, is to ourselves and our posterity. Respect us, like us? Pish tosh. Let them fear us. T’is enough, t’will serve.

The excerpt above is from another most excellent Michael Anton piece, of which you will surely want to read the all.

The Silent Service

Can’t remember where I ran across this one, but it’s truly fascinating stuff.

Nukes, Nubs And Coners: The Unique Social Hierarchy Aboard A Nuclear Submarine
Getting assigned to your first sub doesn’t make you a submariner and once you become one you’ll find yourself in a social structure unlike any other.

Living in a machine with over 100 sailors requires a person to be flexible socially and sometimes physically. I spent two decades on United States Navy submarines performing sonar duties among eccentric personalities in incredibly stressful situations. When sailors report to their first submarine, they are joining a work culture unlike any other. Surrounded by crew members busily moving about tight spaces and narrow walkways, announcements over the circuit boxes, roving watchstanders, equipment humming to 400hz fans, it can be anxiety-inducing to any sailor.

That is why every new crewmember starts as a NUB. But, if they work hard and learn the systems, they will earn their dolphins and become a member of another entirely unique subculture within the grander social hierarchy that exists within the confines of the submerged tube they call home for months on end.

Here’s is what is expected of a new crew member and a bit about the various ‘unique’ groups of people aboard the submarine, one of which the NUB will find themselves an integral part of once they get minted a submariner.

The NUB
A new crewmember is a Non-Useful Body, or NUB. He or she uses our limited supply of space, water, food, and oxygen. They are not welcome, but BUPERS (Bureau of Personnel) keeps sending them. The NUB is easily identifiable as he will be the only crewman wearing a command ball cap with the ship’s name and no Dolphins symbol on the front. They have their qualification card in their rear pocket at all times and had better have a small notebook in their hand for studying. They do not have movie privileges unless they are a “Hot Runner.” Hot Runner refers to a torpedo self-starting despite the fact it hasn’t been launched yet. Very dangerous, but Submariners like that kind of initiative in the NUB.

Everyone, officer or enlisted, is a NUB when they report to their first submarine. They are treated with contempt. In the case of the officer, it’s respectful contempt, sir. The NUB is expected to qualify in submarines within 12 months. This can be extended a few months if there are outside circumstances that delay qualification opportunities.

Qualification on a U.S. submarine is a formal process completed in phases. The first phase introduces all the major systems around the boat. This orientation phase is purposefully designed to ease the NUB through the culture shock of living inside a machine the Navy sends to submerge in the ocean for weeks on end. This introduces the NUB to their fellow crewman, one watch station at a time. This first impression will affect how difficult their qualification path is because the crew decides if you are to become a submariner or not. They must earn their confidence. They must prove that they can perform emergency actions without direction and with confidence during a ‘casualty,’ when something goes wrong.

Phase two of submarine qualification is the most difficult. It requires detailed knowledge of every system on the boat, from the nuclear powerplant, to ventilation, to electrical and hydraulic systems, to simple atmosphere scrubbing and gravity drains. The Non-Useful Body must memorize every system, be able to draw it from memory on command, and know the initial actions they must perform if a causality occurs to that system. Even if it’s not their assigned equipment, they must know how to prevent a failure from cascading into a major casualty that could be catastrophic for the boat.

Phase three of submarine qualification is the most physically demanding. This is the walkthrough phase. The NUB will walk through every level of every compartment one at a time with a qualified crewman. During this tour, they may be dressed in full protective gear like a Fire Fighting Equipment (FFE) asbestos bodysuit and wearing breathing protection. This physical discomfort compounded with an oral interview answering detailed system-specific operational questions simulates a small, but important amount of stress compared to what they would endure during a real casualty situation.

I’ve known a handful of submariners over the years, including a good friend who served on the USS Houston on her maiden cruise. Even those who serve on them all agree that it takes a VERY special kind of man to deal with the unique pressures of life on a submarine without going bugfuck nuts, an assertion with which I shall not quibble.

For anybody interested in reading further on the subject, I can’t recommend David Black’s Harry Gilmour series of novels highly enough. Of all the military fiction (and nonfiction, for that matter) I’ve read and reread over lo, these many years, the Gilmour books stand at the very top of the heap. Set on a British sub during WW2, all of them are meticulously researched and masterfully written: the characters are realistic, the relationships and conflicts between them all eminently believable; the action sequences are gripping and suspenseful; the plots and subplots are intricate and artfully developed. In fact, the only complaint I’ve ever had with the Gilmour novels is that there are only six of the danged things, which is nowhere near enough if you ask me.

SOS

Big news? Big yawn.

Exclusive-Former Republicans and Democrats Form New Third U.S. Political Party
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) -Dozens of former Republican and Democratic officials announced on Wednesday a new national political third party to appeal to millions of voters they say are dismayed with what they see as America’s dysfunctional two-party system.

The new party, called Forward and whose creation was first reported by Reuters, will initially be co-chaired by former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang and Christine Todd Whitman, the former Republican governor of New Jersey. They hope the party will become a viable alternative to the Republican and Democratic parties that dominate U.S. politics, founding members told Reuters.

The new party is being formed by a merger of three political groups that have emerged in recent years as a reaction to America’s increasingly polarized and gridlocked political system. The leaders cited a Gallup poll last year showing a record two-thirds of Americans believe a third party is needed.

I agree wholeheartedly, an alternative to the tatterdemalion Uniparty charade IS needed, and quite badly. Alas, this ain’t it.

The merger involves the Renew America Movement, formed in 2021 by dozens of former officials in the Republican administrations of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush and Donald Trump; the Forward Party, founded by Yang, who left the Democratic Party in 2021 and became an independent; and the Serve America Movement, a group of Democrats, Republicans and independents whose executive director is former Republican congressman David Jolly.

See what I mean? The same old hacks pulling the same old strings; the same old influencers, gladhanders, logrollers, and backstabbers, running the same old scams and shams—not much inspiring, encouraging, or new here, not as far as these eyes can see. My God, even the names are the same.

As I’ve so often said of Biden: if these career political operators really DO know how to fix what needs fixing, and really DO want to see it fixed, then why on earth haven’t they jumped in and done so at any point over the many decades they’ve been content to soak up the graft, peddle the influence, and loll lazily about in the reassuringly tepid waters of the DC swamp? What the bleedin’ hell have they been waiting for all this time, anyway?

But hey, I’m willing to be fair about this. Let’s give them the benefit of assuming they really are sincere about what they’re saying and do them the courtesy of having a look at their program before we just dismiss them out of hand as peddlers of the same old shinola, shall we?

Two pillars of the new party’s platform are to “reinvigorate a fair, flourishing economy” and to “give Americans more choices in elections, more confidence in a government that works, and more say in our future.”

The party, which is centrist, has no specific policies yet. It will say at its Thursday launch: “How will we solve the big issues facing America? Not Left. Not Right. Forward.”

Well, hey, that’s certainly a bold, innovative agenda you fellas have come up with, I must say! Nothing vague, evasive, or slippery about any of that, nosiree BOB! In fact, with the right dressing on top, that there might actually be the crispest, most flavorful word-salad ever plated up. Get ready to CHOW DOWN, American voterpersonages!!!

“Centrist,” he says. “FORWARD,” no less. Le sigh.

Another person involved in the creation of Forward, Miles Taylor – a former Homeland Security official in the Trump administration – said the idea was to give voters “a viable, credible national third party.”

Taylor acknowledged that third parties had failed in the past, but said: “The fundamentals have changed. When other third party movements have emerged in the past it’s largely been inside a system where the American people aren’t asking for an alternative. The difference here is we are seeing an historic number of Americans saying they want one.”

Oh, trust me, we do, we do. Problem is, it’s an alternative to YOU FUCKING PEOPLE that we’re all in search of here, not just the same old shit on a fancy new shingle you’re putting out.

Another somewhat amusing aspect to this shit-a-palooza: if you Duck Duck Go-search on the article’s title entire, you might notice that pretty much EVERY news outlet extant includes that screaming “Exclusive” claim, from Yahoo to MSN to Reuters to…well, all of ’em. Apparently, words no longer mean anydamnedthing at all these days. EXCLUSIVE PRO TIP: when everybody and his sister’s cat’s grandmother runs the exact same article, it is definitionally incorrect to boast that what you have is in any meaningful sense “exclusive.”

One would hope that people who make a living as purveyors of the written word might know better. One would be doomed to disappointment.

Neat neat neat!

So a good friend put me onto this teewee channel I didn’t know about before, not having even turned the danged thing on in about three years or so: Tubi, which has a damned near miraculous cornucopia of documentaries chronicling the rise of the first-wave punk rock bands of the late 70s. Now, I’m finding it impossible to turn the dang thing off.

For those not previously into this sort of thing, that’s one of my all-time faves, a Brit punk outfit yclept the Damned, slashing ‘n’ burning their way through one of their classic tunes*, “New Rose.” Their Tubi doc is called The Damned—Don’t You Wish That We Were Deadand it is filled to brimming with some mighty toothsome stuff.

There’s a crap-ton of these things available on the Tubi channel, featuring bands from the Ramones to the Dead Boys to Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers to…well, you name it, they got it, pretty much. Here’s a latter-day version of “Neat Neat Neat” from 2009. See if that bassist doesn’t look a mite familiar to ya’s.

Yeppers, that there would indeed be the god-like Lemmy Kilmister, who stepped in to tour and record with the Damned for a spell after OG (Original Guitarist) Brian James had left the band and Captain Sensible had moved over from bass to guitar. As much as I’ve always loved the Damned, from back in 77 up until right this very minute, I never knew that Lemmy had filled in with ’em as bassist, a tidbit I gleaned from the documentary.

An additional nugget of fascinating Damned lore: the original-original guitarist (well, kinda-sorta) was Chrissie Hynde, who would go on to great fame with a little combo called the Pretenders. According to Ms Hynde herself, she had three rehearsals with the embryonic punk icons, after which “they never got back in touch with me, I don’t know why.” Ahh, but I do: not to put TOO fine a point on it, but Chrissie never was anything much to brag about as a lead guitarist; after the band had gotten James into the slot—who IS a good lead git-fiddlist, and very much so—the lads had no real use for Miss Hynde anymore.

A pretty comprehensive record of the Damned’s long and storied career is perusable here; it reads like a who’s-who of OG punk rockers from the UK, and encompasses pretty much the whole history of first-wave punkdom across the Pond.

Another Tubi documentary I’m very much looking forward to viewing covers one Stiv Bators and his band, the forever-notorious Dead Boys. These guys are another of my perennial faves; they actually played the old Milestone Club in Charlotte in, oh, 79 or thereabouts, maybe? To my undying regret, I missed that show thanks to what felt to me at the time as if it might turn out to be a fatal case of the Green Apple Strut, dammit.

I later heard that Bators had indeed performed one of his signature stage moves that night: he would wind his way-long mic cable around his neck three or four times, toss the rest up over a beam or rafter or whatever else was handy and looked to be sturdy enough to bear his weight (which couldn’t have been much more than a buck-twenty or so, the skinny little git), then pull up the slack until he was literally hanging himself by the neck from the ceiling several feet off the stage. Which, with the creaky, decrepit old Milestone, was an act of profoundest faith, believe you me.

Tragically, Bators died in 1990 after being clobbered by an errant taxicab in the streets of Paris. Somewhere around here I should still have a photo I clipped from Creem or Circus or some other one of several 70s rock and roll mags I devoured as sustenance for the soul back in my wayward youth, featuring Bators with his pre-Dead Boys band: a Mark 1-Mod 0 Longhair, Boots, ‘n’ Spandex agglomeration hailing from Stiv’s own home-base of Cleveland, calling themselves Frankenstein. As a preview of what was coming, that pic was about as off as off can possibly get. My own sudden artistic swerve from the comparatively sedate metal/hard-rock byway and into the punk fast-lane was every bit as aggressive and extreme as Stiv’s was.

Here’s a blast of some typical Dead Boys mayhem, from 1977 at the hallowed CBGBs.

Those were the days, my friends.

* NOTE: I originally had an early live clip of “Neat Neat Neat” in this space, but decided to swap it out for “New Rose” since I definitely wanted to include the  “Neat Neat Neat” with Lemmy in it, and didn’t see the point of having two versions of the same dang song up there.

This land ain’t your land, this land ain’t my land

This town state region country just ain’t big enough for the both of us.

There’s Gonna be a War in Montana
Over what? The soul of Montana of course. One-of-a-kind land. That’s nothing new. What’s new is the character of the warring factions. They aren’t who you see on TV. On one side you have global interests imputing their values, importing cheaper labor, hollowing out Montana’s attractions and selling them to an international bourgeoisie for maximum profits. On the other you have the new underclass. Not the friendly Christian country folk of times past. And not Cowboy Hat Republican Rancher Dad either. No, these are a new kind of country person. Angry, exasperated, poor, Trump-loving service-workers—the Oxy takers, the meth cookers, the eaters of Chick-Fil-A. This group is acutely aware of just who controls Bozeman and Big Sky, and believe that the same people are coming for their territory. And they’re right.

If you listen, you can hear the two groups screaming at each other in silence, waiting for their very own Gavrilo Princip to spark this thing off.

Even at the dive bar it’s purple hair and tattoos. Baseball on the TVs. The only cowboy hats ironic. Not even a biker left. Alexander Skaarsgaard in another third wave coffeeshop talking loudly in Swedish. A girl in Yeezies and a Prada purse window shops Twig and Whistle, her tall, impossible-jawline panama-hat boyfriend crinkles his tan crows-feet and attempts a Reaganite howdy.

Before, all this could be excused as the seasonal cycle of a ski town. The point is skiing, not culture, so who cares if the localism is real or the mask at the end of a proboscis tube feeding back to international banks. But that’s the old cycle, the old class, the old morality. Now, ski towns are town towns. People stay in Big Sky year round. The occupational class flees the city. I mean why not, honey? We can ski in the winter and just, like, chill in the Summer. It’s getting bad around here. We love hiking…why not just live in nature all the time?

So now in July the one lane road from Bozeman to Big Sky looks like Los Feliz Boulevard at 3pm on a Friday. Plus pebble torpedoes.

26 minutes away, Three Forks, Montana. Sick with a different disease. If Bozeman has parasites, Three Forks has dysentery. 2,000 impoverished white people play host to stragglers who’ve fallen like expensive pebbles over the edge from Bozeman. A beaten down main street, a few residential blocks and an electron cloud of mobile homes and trailers with kids playing out back and parents drinking out front.

You’ve seen the amount of Trump flags that supporters put on boats and cars; these aren’t the mild mannered conservatives of yore. Their propaganda yells, shrieks something that the other side refuses to hear. In Three Forks, every vehicle is a pickup truck and in every truck bed a hostile dog and on every bumper a hostile statement. “My Carbon Footprint is Bigger than Yours” “Proud to be Everything a Liberal Hates.” “Welcome to Montana, Now Go Home.” “We the People.”

But this is a new thing. Montana has always been the site of land battles—but these warring factions are brand new. The Washington Post presents the risk as one-sided—that angry Trumpists are going to soon resort to violence because, well, that’s what they do when the modern world comes knocking. The media doesn’t notice that Trump flags are being raised in reaction to the rainbow ones, not in spite of them. The anger bubbling up from Three Forks isn’t happening because Montanans, left alone for decades, somehow developed into anachronistic bigots unready for the modern world. It’s happening because Montanans got their sh*t taken. They were intentionally shoved out, left behind. Their music, their signs, their cars, their language—they’re all born from a fresh wound.

Private equity fears nativism because nativism equals economic protectionism—no free access to markets, no distant ownership of local assets, no importation of cheap labor. Blood is thicker than water, and private equity is terrified of relationships it can’t buy. This is why it posts Live Local! on its LoMo buildings and serves frozen versions of authentic Montana cuisine. It needs to placate people just long enough to take over the land, hollow out the existing culture, and replace it with a replica that siphons the locals’ milkshake back to itself.

Private equity knows that the bourgeoisie is reliably distracted by rainbows. To them, the rainbow represents tolerance, and tolerance (of everyone besides 100 million Trump supporters) must be exported everywhere. So, hand in hand, the bourgeoisie and private equity raise the rainbow flag over Montana. The new underclass shouts back. Buys another pickup. Tacks on another Trump flag. Digs in. The bourgeoisie gets more triggered, hunkers down, more rainbows, more Washington Post articles. Back and forth until it feels like we’re one mistake away from all those pickup trucks becoming the war machines of an American Taliban.

The media doesn’t warn us about a civil war in San Francisco or Seattle, even though downtown Seattle was occupied for two months by insurrectionists not two years ago. That’s because the bourgeoisie/private equity tag team is secure in its ownership of the cities—the new underclass isn’t a threat. No, they warn of civil war in places where there’s still land to win. And there’s no better land than Montana’s.

Plus, they figure they won the war in SF and Seattle a long, long time ago. Sadly for the rest of us, their victory all too soon began to taste of ashes in their mouths, no longer sweet but sour and bitter both at once. In addition, those former prospective Utopias they conquered and rearranged to their own liking inexplicably turned into squalid shitholes no longer fit for human habitation. So the marauding shitlib hordes have decided that those benighted lands wherein the primitive, uncouth Deplorables choose to dwell might benefit greatly from a few lessons from their more highly-evolved selves in how a diversity-centric, obedient, sustainable lifestyle is properly conducted.

They’re deadly serious about this ongoing project of theirs, and fully intend to get it done. Don’t even try to kid yourself they won’t, or can’t; the list of once-pleasant American hometowns that they’ve infested, warped, and ruined is extremely long, with more place-names being added every day. As in so many other contexts, our own complacency and/or reluctance to face facts honestly is the chink in American armor—a weakness they’ve become quite adept at exploiting to the fullest, having accumulated a great body of experience in it how to do it.

Manatees need abortions too!

It’s always amused me no end how the most overwrought fanatics screaming themselves purple in support of “a woman’s right to choose” to murder her unborn (well, usually) child always seem to look like what you’d end up with if you shaved a morbidly obese goat’s ass and taught it to walk backwards. Same with the lumbering Wide Loads who are forever threatening to “go on strike” sexually until they get whatever the hell it is they’re demanding—OR ELSE!!!—this week.

I’m pleased to report that I am by no means the only one to notice that those most pissed off about the Roe misfeasance being corrected are the same blubberskites who couldn’t get laid in a Tijuana whorehouse on a Saturday night if they were handing out free candy, cervezas, and hundred-dollar bills as incentives, and therefore have absolutely NO chance of getting preggers by any method that doesn’t involve test tubes, lab techs, and an anonymous sperm donor wanking into a little cup.

PENSACOLA, Fla. — Northwest Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz on Monday stood by controversial comments he made this past weekend regarding female abortion rights protesters.

On Saturday, Gaetz spoke to college students at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in Tampa, saying women protesting abortion access are less likely to get pregnant because they aren’t attractive.

“Why is it that the women with the least likelihood of getting pregnant are the ones most worried about having abortions?” Gaetz said. “Nobody wants to impregnate you if you look like a thumb.”

“These people are odious on the inside and out,” Gaetz said Saturday at the summit. “They’re like 5’2, 350 pounds and they’re like, ‘Give me my abortions or I’ll get up and march and protest.’ And I’m thinking, ‘March? You look like you got ankles weaker than the legal reasoning behind Roe vs Wade.’ A few of them need to get up and march. They need to get up and march for like an hour a day, swing those arms, get the blood pumping, maybe mix in a salad.”

A local teewee news crew tried to trip Gaetz up over his refreshingly candid way of putting into words something plenty of us were thinking already, to no avail whatsoever.

He gave this explanation when asked about Saturday’s comments:

I’m very pro-life and I make no apology for it. I’m grateful that Roe has been overturned and that Dobbs is now the jurisprudence on abortion. I find these people that go out in these pro-abortion, pro-murder rallies odious — and just, like, ugly on the inside and out. I make no apology for it. I don’t believe that every person who disagrees with my perspective on life is an ugly person. But the ones that are out there protesting and marching on Justice [Brett] Kavanaugh’s home, trying to threaten the court, trying to impose a ‘night of rage’ on our nation’s Capitol — which us what they advertised — that’s just pure ugliness. I see that ugliness on the inside, I see it on the outside. Even in the horrible circumstance where an abortion may happen, it is nothing to celebrate and it is nothing to cheer.

Channel 3 then asked Gaetz two follow-up questions:

  • Channel 3: Is it safe to say that, based off your comments, you’re suggesting that these women at these abortion rallies are ugly and overweight?
  • Gaetz: “Yes”
  • Channel 3: What do you say to people who think those comments are offensive?
  • Gaetz: “Be offended.”

DeSantis, his spokesbadass Christina Pushaw, and now this? I’m beginning to think it’s something in the water down there, maybe. Oh, and speaking of Ms Pushaw.

Florida Republicans fired a shot across the bow at corporate media Saturday by limiting access to an event and when the so-called journalists who were barred entry demonstrated what it means to be a snowflake, Gov. Ron DeSantis’ (R-FL) spokeswoman Christina Pushaw channeled her best Jen Psaki in response.

The Sunshine Summit took place Saturday at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., where, in addition to hearing from conservative voices like James Golden, Josh Hammer and Clay Travis, attendees observed congressional debates moderated by Mark Levin. In a surprise move, DeSantis joined Levin in moderating, but the biggest surprise was handed to reporters when they discovered America’s governor had made the event invite only.

“It has come to my attention that some liberal media activists are mad because they aren’t allowed into #SunshineSummit this weekend,” Pushaw wrote. “My message to them is to try crying about it. Then go to kickboxing and have a margarita. And write the same hit piece you were gonna write anyway.”

The jab was a callback to a remark from then-White House press secretary Jen Psaki who had offered up her advice to Democrats unhappy that their agenda wasn’t advancing through Congress while appearing on “The View.” “My advice to everyone out there who is frustrated, sad, angry, p*ssed off, feel those emotions, go to a kickboxing class, have a margarita, do whatever you need to do this weekend, and then wake up on Monday morning, we’ve got to keep fighting.”

DeSantis had previously mocked the White House over this with a message of his own saying, “Having a margarita is well and good, but it is not a cure for Bidenflation.”

As you’d expect, State Media “journalists” immediately started rolling around on the floor kicking and screaming, waving their chubby little fists around, and threatening to hold their breath until they turned blue over having their unalienable “right” to excrete another pantload of propaganda shorted out by the wily and ever-astute DeSantis, who as always wasn’t having any of their usual shite. Comely Christina (and she is, actually, which only makes matters worse for the H8rz™), for her part, just kept on dumping more buckets of Florida sea-salt into the indignant shitlib scribblers’ wounds.

In fact, Pushaw delighted in the tantrums as she took to Twitter again later on Saturday to point out how one “journalist” had “created a nine-tweet thread to explain how mad he is.”

“They’re still going…Liberal media in Florida doomed itself to irrelevance because these ‘journalists’ make every story about themselves & their delusions of persecution,” she wrote. “People don’t want to read your hand-wringing. It’s not news. Nor is the 500th hit piece on Gov. DeSantis.”

Nope, t’ain’t. I still do hope and pray he doesn’t do it, but if Ron the Great does run for Prexy in ’24, he oughta name Pushaw as his Veep. Hell, I’d almost consider turning out to vote for THAT ticket myself, which is really saying something.

The good guys win one

MOST welcome news from BCE.

Well, lemme tell ya…

Sometimes you come up Aces.

Not –only– did I get Wifey sprung from the hoosegow
I –also-convinced Dumbunny to give the Gran#2 to me.
Back in our possession.

I owe all of you a debt that I can never repay properly. From prayers to shekels to good thoughts, y’all got me through this. It ain’t over yet, but at least NOW we can get shit at least on a even keel. As far as Gran#2, she’s happy and thrilled to be back with Big Papi and GiGi and everything outside of some legal ramifications to be dealt with, she’s home.

Whew…talk about missions.

Like I said, most welcome news indeed. I had a phone conversation the other day with Big Country a few hours after the, um, unfortunate sequence of events that landed Wifey in Stoney Lonesome had taken place (no further deets from me; it’s BCE’s story to tell, not mine). Poor guy was upset, discombobulated, and worried sick enough that he asked me if I might be so kind as to consider rerunning the link to his ongoing raffle, since it was looking a lot like no matter how much dough he could somehow scrape together quick, it almost certainly wasn’t going to be enough to meet the need which would accompany this revoltin’ development.

Done and done, my brother, and I’m glad to hear that things seem to have worked out so nicely. Y’all go on over to the Intrepid Reporter’s digs and buy something nice for yourself, y’heah?

When compliance is treason, defiance is patriotic

Resist we much.

Let me ask one simple question: What small scrap of freedom are you holding onto that is worth watching the complete destruction of America in silence? That is not a question for this audience, because they’re largely motivated and act in whatever way they can to secure freedom and they are vocal. It’s a rhetorical question to ruminate over when you see your fellow Americans waving the flag for all they’re worth on July 4th with a mask on their face.

It’s a question for those who go to work everyday, believing, still, in the righteousness of the United States Government after two full years of demonstrating Soviet/communist tactics, lies and distortions of people like Deborah Birx, who openly admitted in her book that she falsified Covid numbers and death rates to inspire compliance from the people. The very simple term for that is fraud. She says, in essence, “yes, I lied about the dangers of Covid, because I wanted people to do what I said.” And, this is not a one-off, this is the typical attitude of our government employees. Another example of the hubris involved here is the video of the ATF showing up at someone’s house to demand serial numbers of recently purchased weapons, without a warrant. Listen to the condescending, casual method of stripping someone of their rights, the nonchalant oppression and subtle threats, particularly, “so we don’t have to come back.” part. It’s the bluff and bluster of low-level government officials to command obedience and to the degree that there is compliance, that is treasonous.

Every act of resistance begins with non-compliance. Over the years this should have become a habit of the patriot, to step up and deny any government agency’s authority, the laws, etc. I’ve always done this, but admittedly, only when my own ox was being gored, perhaps its time to fight back on a few other fronts. One doesn’t have to make filing lawsuits their life’s work, but one or two goes a long way.

Yes, the 2022 election, if not awash in fraud, as it likely will be, will be a watershed moment for the country. It’s likely to support and reaffirm that the green agenda is a political loser. Republicans are licking their lips over the successes that they’ll have, but they need to understand, the nation is not turning Republican, they are rebelling against insanity and a few candidates in the Republican Party carry the popular message for that rebellion. That’s all. To the extent that they grow emboldened to offer their own form of oppression, communist-lite oppression, they are overplaying their hand, which is what politics are made of, the ebb and flow of hubris.

The evil nature of government and those attracted to it are the opponents and only by taking on the administrative state on their own terms will the people succeed.

Do note that last: On our terms. Not the Satanstate’s—OURS, and ours alone. Reject our decades-long acceptance of the grotesque fallacy that we must prove ourselves to be more deserving of victory than them via agreeing to do battle exclusively on their terms—thereby confirming Team Liberty’s status as The Better Men, forever Taking The High Road and treating grunting swine rooting around in their own filth as if they were Our Esteemed Colleagues Across The Aisle and Right Honorable Gentlemen—and start kicking some asses up between some shoulder blades instead, and we just might turn this damned thing around.

As with the police and the military, We The People are under no obligation whatever to obey unlawful edicts. By both word and deed our Ruling Class, their misbegotten, twisted government, and its enabling creatures both high and low have forsaken all and every claim on our loyalty, our cooperation, our allegiance, and our forbearance. Their law is not our law anymore, if it ever truly was, thus is our duty not to respect it, but to undermine it, evade it, and sabotage its agents and works whenever practicable.

Too many of our putative allies tacitly offer the Ruling Class a benefit of the doubt they in no way deserve when they foolishly claim that all the havoc and calamity they wreak must surely be “unintended consequences,” issuing from mere ignorance or stupidity and not perfidy and dishonorable motives. This is purblind delusion of the most damaging sort imaginable, leading those still susceptible to such inane blibbering astray to mire themselves up to the axles in folly and futility. Worse, it also emboldens our Enemy, convincing him that his inapt subterfuges are actually working quite well, and ought to be not just continued but expanded.

Our traitorous would-be lords and masters and their servants, minions, and helpmates are all vermin—craven, treacherous, and conniving. They are both mentally and morally diseased, sick with an ideological affliction which is extremely contagious, one that’s universally fatal if it’s allowed to gain a foothold in the body politic and metastasize without treatment. An aggressive regimen of large doses of high-velocity lead, applied topically to the infected areas, is the only known cure. Thankfully, it works every time it’s tried.

We owe these infernal parasites nothing but our scalding, implacable enmity. To ourselves and our posterity, however, we owe everything: our deathless hatred for all tyrants, our fierce resistance, our unflagging resolve. Most especially, we owe to our posterity a ceaseless quest for vengeance against the pestilential plague-rats who wrested a once great and noble nation from our grasp, only to ruin and humiliate both it and us for no greater purpose than their own fleeting amusement.

With their compliance—their disgraceful cowardice and docility, their bland acceptance of the sibling modern scourges of despotism and raw brigandry, all melding to attain their most exalted expression as High Art during the lockdowns, mandates, and societal persecution of the Covid Infidels—Those Who Are No Longer Our Countrymen in effect chose a side. In the memorable words of the Knight Guardian of the Holy Grail, they chose…poorly. Let them burn in the fires of Righteousness alongside their lords and masters for their error, then.

Sayonara, sucker

So today I had my very first opportunity to give the new user-registration-approval plugin I installed the other day a whirl: some blaggard with a dot-ru email addy attempted to slime his way in here, and I dumped his ass so damned fast it made MY head spin. In my twenty years of doing blog-business here, there has never yet been a living soul attached to a dot-ru address that was ever up to anything but a whole lot of No Good. So you can well imagine the pleasure I derived from flushing this latest example down the crapper and out the damned sewer pipe with all the other smelly turds. Think I’ll celebrate with rerun of a bona fide classic.

On WWIV

Since we’re well and truly in it and have been for many years, the wise move would probably be to start fighting back, lest we end up overrun and badly routed.

Unlike the physical territory and fronts of conventional war, the battlefield of this war is the mind and soul. The goal is to confuse and demoralize the American people — and particularly patriots — through ideological, spiritual, and psychological operations (psyops), and a range of other deceptions. Unrecognized by most, this war has been going on during the last century in different forms and against different actors. The primary targets of this war are the American people’s sense of identity and belonging — their family orientation, their faith in God and appreciation for their country. The enemy battle plan has been to create division within America in every possible way: between children and their parents, between young and old, between races, between genders, and between heterosexuals and homosexuals. The recent explosion of a transgender movement may be a marker of nearing the end, for no civilization can survive when individuals turn upon themselves.

The common thread of those who want to take America down is a secular globalist vision that supersedes and nullifies the sovereignty of the nation-state. For these elites, the United States and its constitution stands in their way and is their biggest obstacle.

The first socialist totalitarian globalist regime was the Soviet communist system known as the USSR that was established in 1919 by Bolshevik revolutionaries Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky, both of whom who were financed by wealthy capitalist businessmen in London, Frankfurt, and New York.

After World War II, the second totalitarian state was established by Mao Zedong in 1949 as the Peoples Republic of China (PRC). In 1989, the USSR ended due to its failed socialist economic system, and the fifteen Soviet satellite countries, including Ukraine, regained their independence. The Communist Party of China (CCP) then took the baton of global communism, leaving behind a legacy of its bloody cultural revolution and the genocide of some sixty-five million of its own citizens. Learning from the failure of socialism in the USSR, the CCP adopted a modified market system in the early 1980s. Even though this market system was under control of the CCP, its incentives combined with the entrepreneurial culture in China catalyzed rapid economic growth that lifted a significant portion of the Chinese population out of poverty.

More than any country, China has a unique war-fighting orientation that traces back to Fourth Century B.C. military philosopher-strategist, Sun Tzu, whose name means “Grand Master.” Chinese military and political decisionmakers still embrace Sun Tzu’s admonition to “break the enemy’s resistance without fighting,” and to exploit the normalcy bias by “engaging the enemy with what they expect as it is what they are able to discern and it will confirm their projections… and it will settle them into predicable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.”

By the late 1980s and through the 1990s, the CCP let the world know that they were open for business, offering a huge market for foreign brand products and also a low-cost manufacturing platform. Chinese communists deemed this the best way for their country’s economy to catch up to the developed countries of the world. And so, the CCP created rules of engagement that included 51 percent ownership of all joint ventures established in China so as to assure control and guarantee access to technology. Through this, the Chinese gained access to American companies’ patents and designs. In addition, there has been and continues to be blatant lawbreaking and theft by the Chinese. Last month the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Global IP Centre (GIPC) reported that as much as 86% of the world’s counterfeit goods originate from China.

While wooing American companies to offshore some or all of their manufacturing and assembly to China, the CCP was building and infiltrating channels in the United States at many levels. Those channels included universities and think tanks, social and cultural groups, Chinese-language media, Chinese cultural organizations — such as Confucius Institutes, and WeChat, the Chinese social media and messaging app. Newsweek has identified about 600 Chinese groups operating in the U.S. that are all in regular touch with and guided by the CCP — a larger-scale version of a pattern found in other countries around the world.

It’s no coincidence that the Covid-19 virus originating in China in late 2019 gave birth to one of the largest global psyops in peacetime history. That psyop, which was explicitly designed to promote fear started with the CCP’s approval to release of images of total lockdowns in Wuhan, with apartment entry doors being welded shut, while bags of dead or dying pet dogs and cats piled up on sidewalks awaiting pickup and burial.

Klaus Schwab, WEF founder and chairman, built on the COVID fear psyop, stating “the Covid pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world to create a healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous future.” Among WEF’s eight predictions for the world in 2030, we are told: “You will own nothing. And you will be happy.”

Newly Awokened™ former shitlib functionary Naomi Wolf has written an extended, meticulously-crafted piece in which she bluntly details the strategies, tactics, weapons, maneuvers, and war aims of China’s not so stealthy or subtle campaign to defeat and destroy us utterly. The article is simply impossible to excerpt without doing serious structural damage to her work and dulling its impact severely. Some may find Wolf’s tone a bit shrill and therefore off-putting in places, perhaps inclining them to feel that in the end, the shouting undermines the argument. Speaking strictly for myself, however, I can’t gainsay the case she makes with any real confidence, and ain’t gonna try to. Read it yourself and see how it strikes you.

Be that as it may, no sane, sober person can credibly deny any longer that Heritage Americans are now embroiled in a multifaceted war, beset on numerous fronts by a hydra-headed yet essentially unitary foe. In such a grim situation, it’s difficult in the extreme to even figure out where to begin battling back, inspiring a deep-down dismay and despair—a feeling that all is lost anyway, so why try? Don’t give in to this; every successful field officer or astute military analyst I’ve ever read, from Sun Tzu (if you’ve never read The Art Of War before, trust me when I say you MUST) right through to PattonEisenhower and beyond, urges against what they usually refer to as “taking counsel of your fears.

So it is with us today: we cannot, we MUST not, do this. That path leads only to defeat, subjugation, and ultimately, death. NO enemy, however strong and determined, is invincible. NO situation, however bleak and daunting, is truly hopeless. NO struggle, however arduous and difficult, is truly lost unless and until we yield. Unless and until we surrender.

NEVER surrender. NEVER yield. NEVER let hope fade away.

A perfect candidate for a bad case of the cancer

Die, Commie bitch.

Today Biden Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm cheered the price of gasoline and electricity in America.

Granholm says, “We’re witnessing the beginning of one of the most significant events in human history… It can’t progress fast enough.”

We must all hope and pray that we are, yes. Just not the “significant events” YOU think.

How the sausage is made

And how it goes bad.

Avoiding unseen food hazards is the reason people often check the dates on food packaging. And printed with the month and year is often one of a dizzying array of phrases: “best by,” “use by,” “best if used before,” “best if used by,” “guaranteed fresh until,” “freeze by” and even a “born on” label applied to some beer.

People think of them as expiration dates, or the date at which a food should go in the trash. But the dates have little to do with when food expires, or becomes less safe to eat. I am a microbiologist and public health researcher, and I have used molecular epidemiology to study the spread of bacteria in food.

A more science-based product dating system could make it easier for people to differentiate foods they can safely eat from those that could be hazardous.

The FDA considers some products “potentially hazardous foods” if they have characteristics that allow microbes to flourish, like moisture and an abundance of nutrients that feed microbes.

These foods include chicken, milk and sliced tomatoes, all of which have been linked to serious foodborne outbreaks. But there is currently no difference between the date labeling used on these foods and that used on more stable food items.

The piece notes that infant formula is currently the only food product whose “use by” date is actually scientifically determined and therefore, y’know, actually useful. The determination there is concerned mainly with the breakdown of nutrients, protein in particular. Other food items? Eh, not so much.

Determining the shelf life of food with scientific data on both its nutrition and its safety could drastically decrease waste and save money as food gets more expensive.

But in the absence of a uniform food dating system, consumers could rely on their eyes and noses, deciding to discard the fuzzy bread, green cheese or off-smelling bag of salad.

That’s always been my go-to method. My guiding principle when it comes to answering the “should I eat this, or no?” question is pretty simple: with most foods, if it’s bad, you’re definitely gonna know it. In fact, when it comes to things like spoiled meat, rancid milk, or moldy cheese, it’s pretty hard to miss. Lettuce or other salad greens that are mostly brown, wilted, and funky-looking? Yeah, no. Raw eggs that have sat neglected in the fridge a while? The tried and true “float” test has never failed me yet. Such tests might not be molecular epidemiology, but it’s good enough for most of us.

Indoctrination, not education

Let’s just call it what it really is, shall we?

Forgive the grim opening to this, but children are now taught about masturbation at school aged 3-6. And parents are being told these lessons are compulsory.

Not “grooming”. Not “sexualising children”. Not “insanely creepy & inappropriate”. Compulsory.

Call it a conspiracy all you want, there is a very dark, heavy agenda at play & this is part of it…

So is the gender confusion indoctrination…

And the virus fear indoctrination & misplaced sense of responsibility…

And the climate fear indoctrination, manipulation & guilt-bashing…

And the ‘need’ for a ‘convenient’ cashless society indoctrination…

And the ‘be kind’ at all costs indoctrination…

And the ‘fear to stand against the norm, however fucked up it is because the herd will leap on you like an angry pack of pre-programmed hyenas & you’ll deserve everything that’s coming to you’ indoctrination…

And the war propaganda indoctrination…

And all the rest of the horsecrap we’re being bombarded with from all directions.

It’s all coming into schools for a reason. More & more. It’s not even covert or insidious anymore.

They have drag queens looking like plastic sex dolls reading stories to 4-year-olds & parents who are too ‘kind & liberal’ to say get the fuck away from my child.

They have people injecting children with experimental drugs created by known criminals to ‘save’ the elderly who’ve already had 5 of the bloody things.

They have teachers regurgitating government fear-porn to children because ‘it’s just what’s on the curriculum.’

Kids being dressed up in whatever colours are in keeping with the latest propaganda push. Doesn’t matter what you or they think, as long as it’s in keeping with ‘the done thing’.

Has ‘the done thing’ ever been louder?

Has going against it ever been less popular?

Have we ever been more mindlessly obedient & afraid to question authority?

And if so, where did we learn that?

I often wonder what it will take for this to end. To cause the snap.

Oh, I think we all know well enough by now: shitlib corpses stacked like cordwood. Nothing more nor less. Bayou Peter, after appending a blast of righteous fury from a self-confessed Leftist education to his own post on the matter, notes:

Propaganda is not only being force-fed to our children to make them conform; the force-feeding is being done by those who actively prey on our children for their own warped, sick, criminal purposes. As just one example, Fox News reports:”At least 181 K-12 educators charged with child sex crimes in first half of 2022″. Note that’s only educators who’ve been charged. The number still under investigation, and the number who’ve not (yet) been detected, must be many times larger.

Indubitably so, yes. Is there any light to be seen at the end of this deep, dark tunnel? Indubitably so, yes.

There’s something very concrete all of us can do: get behind the increasing efforts, local, state and nationwide, to take back our education system from the politically correct and restore it to what it should be. We’re seeing that in more and more school systems, where right-thinking candidates are being elected to school boards and are cracking down on much of the “woke” nonsense they’re finding there. Good for them, say I, and the more the merrier!

Indeed. As I’ve maintained for many years now, the roots of most of our problems are not by any means hard to find: they’re in the propagandizing and brainwashing mills our schools have been turned into, purposefully and with malicious intent. Unless and until Real Americans reclaim their schools and clear the Commie rats from the nest entirely, our woes will remain intractable.

Nice work if you can get it

It might be a big club, but you and me ain’t in it.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) attracts high donations and gifts from wealthy businesses and Wall Street investors. In the past 24 months, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has received over $7 Million in direct and indirect donations from such parties.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s wealth also includes her savings in real estate. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez owns number of prime real estate properties across New York, which brings her monthly income through rent. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s net worth also includes a small portion of Bitcoins.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Liabilities

In order to build her political career, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has borrowed over $2 Million in loans and mortgages from JP Morgan, which is a current outstanding liability.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Cars
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) has recently bought a Mercedes-Benz EqC for $140,000 USD. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also owns a BMW X8 that cost her $200,000 USD. A Few other cars owned by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are listed below. Also see Joe Manchin Net Worth.

Mercedes-Benz GLA
Audi Q2
BMW X7

As a Congresscritter, Alex from the Bronx Sandy from Westchester pulls in a comparatively paltry 155k per annum. As a natural-born skeptic, Divemedic has questions.

A person who gets elected to the House of Representatives receives a salary of $155,000 per year. Prior to being elected, they lived with their mother while working as a bartender and were fighting the foreclosure of their home. 29 months after assuming office, they have a net worth of $29 million. This person now owns 6 homes, 5 Cars, 2 Luxury Yachts, has cash reserves of over $3 Million and a stock portfolio that is valued at $15 million.

I am of course talking about AOC. The question I think we should all be asking is- how do you increase your net worth by over $1 million a month when your salary is only $13,000 a month?

She is a self described socialist, yet drives 5 cars with a combined value of half a million dollars: a Mercedes-Benz GLA, an Audi Q2, a BMW X7 ($100,000), a Mercedes-Benz EqC (valued at $140,000), and a BMW X8 ($200,000).

Fairly nice haul after a mere couple of years as a goobermint official, wouldn’t you say? But that’s the way with all these so-called “public servants,” each and every one of them. SOP:

  • Run for office
  • Once you’re in, you’re in for life—consistently, well over 90% of incumbents are reelected again and again and again, until they either retire, die, or, in a vanishingly few extraordinary cases, are indicted, tried, and/or packed off for a brief stay in Club Fed
  • Board the Boeing and get rich, rich, RICH; the graft don’t stop till the casket drops, baby

Think I’m joking, gilding the lily, or in any way exaggerating about elected office being for all intents and purposes a lifetime sinecure? Think again, bub.

The re-election rate for members of Congress is exceptionally high considering how unpopular the institution is in the eyes of the public. If you’re looking for steady work, you might consider running for office yourself; job security is especially strong for members of the House of Representatives even though a significant portion of the electorate supports terms limits.

How often do members of Congress actually lose an election? Not very.

Incumbent members of the House seeking re-election are all but assured re-election. The re-election rate among all 435 members of the House has been as high as 98 percent in modern history, and it’s rarely dipped below 90 percent.

The late Washington Post political columnist David Broder referred to this phenomenon as “incumbent lock” and blamed gerrymandered congressional districts for eliminating any notion of competition in general elections.

But there are other reasons the re-election rate for members of Congress is so high. “With wide name recognition, and usually an insurmountable advantage in campaign cash, House incumbents typically have little trouble holding onto their seats,” explains the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan watchdog group in Washington.

In addition, there are other built-in protections for congressional incumbents: the ability to regularly mail flattering newsletters to constituents at taxpayer expense under the guise of “constituent outreach” and to earmark money for pet projects in their districts. Members of Congress who raise money for their colleagues are also rewarded with large amounts of campaign money for their own campaigns, making (it) even more difficult to unseat incumbents.

I’ve made much sport of sleazy, slimy ProPols over lo, these many years for being perfectly willing to eat a mile of fresh, steaming turd at high noon on the public square if they thought it might help them win elective office. Given the richness of the payoff once they’re in, who could blame them? It’s yet another dismal indicator of just how badly broken this country is, that’s what.

Getting serious, getting real

Our friend Wes Renegade gave a speech at what he calls the Battle for the Republic LARP, with video and transcript posted at NCR. The denouement:

I love America. I love the country I grew up in. I love what our country was founded upon.

But the America I see today is in total moral collapse. Our country has become a woke cesspool of third world ghettos, full of drug addicts, insane feminist, and neutered soyboys. America it seems has become the greatest force for evil on this planet. You can’t vote your way out of evil. Evil must be confronted and destroyed. America has been in moral decay for decades now. We’ve done nothing but tolerate it. America has turned its back on its founding. We have discarded our Judeo-Christian founding for “do whatever makes you feel good evil.” Our “government” no longer represents us and has long since threw out the Rule of Law. You can see the double standard everywhere you look. The lady of justice is no longer blind and serves only the powers that be. Look no further than the January 6th political prisoners for this evidence.

We deserve what is fast approaching. The America we grew up in has long been dead. I don’t want to save our country. It needs to all come down and we need to rebuild it. Evil must be eliminated. Voting will not eliminate the great evil we are faced with.

We know who we are. It is our time to stand against this darkness, this evil. It is why we were born. It is why we are here now. It is time for us to be the warriors we have trained to be, that we know we are. It is time to quit sitting idly by and watching evil gain ground while the world burns.

We all have a decision to make. Either we stand and fight, or we purely and simply deserve everything that is heading our way.

Right now we are willingly lining up to get in those boxcars. All of us. We are all capable of fighting and all we are doing is talking and grumbling. Granted we might be at the back of the line, but we are still in line and that line is moving.

This isn’t someone else’s war, it’s our war, no one is coming to save us. It is all up to us. I personally have exhausted all peaceful means. I have tried to work within the system and do the right things to no avail. Not everyone will be fighters, I understand that, but I will not participate in this “voting” farce that so many seem to think can get us out this mess come fall. For those of you who have been sharpening your swords and don’t know what time it is, I can’t show you the clock.

It is up to us to secure freedom for the future generations. There is nowhere left to run to. It is time to stand against tyranny.

I apologize if my words here come across as harsh. But the truth often is harsh. It is past time to put up or shut up. And if we were even halfway serious about putting up, our so called “Government” would have shut us up by now. We need to quit having rallies on the deck of the Titanic and quit trying to convince ourselves that even “God himself can’t sink this ship.”

So, are you a LARPer? Or are you a Warrior?

Quantity has a quality all its own

Running the (military) numbers.

Calculating a country’s military might can be very difficult (the secret is the soul of the business) but there is one factor that can be counted: the number of soldiers. Even with the best resources in the world, an army needs people.

Annually, the Global Fire Power (GFP) ranking rate every countries’ military capacities in the globe and also assign a Power Index Number (PIN) based on these following listed criteria:

  1. The number of serving military members.
  2. Fuel availability for military operations.
  3. The number of jet fighters.
  4. The defence budget.
  5. Logistics flexibility.
  6. Largest military budgets in the world.

Before we proceed to the listing of the strongest military in the world, I will like to give you a simple definition of War and also we check on the reasons for war, the reason for civil war, reasons for world war and so on all packed under the reasons for fighting wars.

Pretty interesting stuff, some of which may surprise you.

It’s about time

Looks like I was only off by about a year, year and a half or so.

President Biden tested positive for COVID-19 Thursday morning, the White House said.
The president is experiencing a trio of mild symptoms, his doctor said in a letter.

Biden’s symptoms are a runny nose, occasional dry cough and fatigue, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, physician to the president, wrote in a letter.

Biden went to bed feeling fine Wednesday night but did not sleep well, Dr. Ashish Jha, White House COVID-19 response coordinator, told reporters.

The president has begun treatment with the drug Paxlovid, which is currently authorized for the treatment of “mild-to-moderate COVID-19.” The antiviral drug has been proven to curb the worst effects of the disease, showing positive results of direct viral testing for those at high risk of progressing to severe COVID-19, according to the FDA.

As you folks may or may not remember, after the DemonRats had stolen the election and fraudulently installed “Joe Biden” in the White House as “pResident,” I predicted it would be announced by no later than June 2021 or so that the mouldering, gibbering old fool had “died of Covid,” initiating a national paroxysm of “grief” that would be every bit as phony as “Joe Biden” himself had always been. Alas, it didn’t work out quite that way, at least as far as my anticipated timetable went. But hey, better late than never, right? More from the NY Post.

President Biden on Thursday tested positive for COVID-19 — one day after giving a gaffe-filled speech that spurred health concerns and less than a week after returning from meetings in Saudi Arabia with killer Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

Biden, 79, is the oldest-ever American president and his advanced age puts him at elevated risk of serious illness or death, though he has received four shots of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine, reducing the risk, and is being treated with antiviral drug Paxlovid.

The president’s physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, said in a morning statement that Biden “is currently experiencing mild symptoms, mostly rhinorrhea (or ‘runny hose’) and fatigue, with an occasional dry cough, which started yesterday evening.”

Biden’s health was widely discussed on Wednesday when he shocked listeners by claiming during a speech in Massachusetts that he has cancer, using the present tense. The White House hastened to clarify that he was referring to skin cancer from before he took office. In the same speech, Biden referred to male Rep. Jake Auchincloss (D-Mass.) as “she” and said that the city of Glasgow is in England, before correcting himself to say Scotland.

Sheesh. Covid, cancer, asthma, whatever. Sick or unsick, he’s still hardly what people usually think of when they use the word “alive.”

Update! The bottom line.

There’s a reason that all leftist policy is about transferring responsibility from individuals to groups.

Biden may be the least popular president in history—but that’s good for Democrats. Just as it’s good that he thinks he has cancer (or asthma or whatever). If the Democrats can force him not to run for a second term, they can make him the scapegoat for all the suffering wrought intentionally by the leftist agenda. It gives them a clean slate. As long as America is willing to buy it.

I don’t mean, of course, that America might be willing to buy into wrapping this trainwreck around Biden’s neck. They have known from the start, even Biden’s voters have known, that he was never really in charge. They knew that other people were standing in the shadows and pulling the strings. Some Democrats voted for a third term of Barack Obama. Some Democrats voted for a first term of Obama consigliere Susan Rice, et al. But no one, or almost no one, really voted for Biden, who, remember, largely ran his campaign from his basement.

Americans have to be willing to buy into the theoretical possibility that Democrats could win the next election. They know it’s vanishingly unlikely that a majority of the voters in the country would choose the Democrats. It’s even less likely now than it was in 2020. But the question from Democrats’ perspective is not whether they can win, but whether America will accept being told that Democrats have won.

When America wakes up again, after going to sleep election night with Republicans in the lead across the nation, and they’re presented with another “red mirage”—with the result of millions and millions of votes magically appearing at 4 o’clock in the morning in all the most crucial districts—will they accept it? Will they be willing to suspend disbelief, as voters in New York City and Chicago and San Francisco already do, when they are told that despite the disastrous tenure of the Democrats in office, the voters have decided to extend that tenure?

The Democrats can’t hope to win. They can only hope that getting rid of Biden will make a win seem plausible. They can only hope that, when they cheat, Americans will let them get away with it rather than coming after them with pitchforks.

Prognosis: negative. Or so we must hope; there’s a clock ticking here, and time for retrieving whatever we possibly can from the ashes of America That Was grows short. If all it takes to put things right is pitchforks, I’d say the rotten bastards are getting off way light.

Rebound update! About this Paxlovid substance.

Fauci Says He Had Paxlovid Rebound, Worse Symptoms
June 30, 2022 – Anthony Fauci, MD, the chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, said Tuesday that he went through a “Paxlovid rebound” that can occur after taking the antiviral to recover from COVID-19.

The symptoms that he had after he completed the treatment were more severe than those he had at first from the coronavirus, he said.

“After I finished the 5 days of Paxlovid, I reverted to negative on an antigen test for 3 days in a row,” Fauci said during Foreign Policy’s Global Health Forum event.

“And then on the fourth day, just to be absolutely certain, I tested myself again,” he said. “I reverted back to positive.”

Fauci then began a second course of Paxlovid when symptoms returned, which were “much worse than the first go-around,” he said. During Tuesday’s event, he said he was feeling “reasonably good.”

Aww, that’s a shame. Hate to hear it, I truly do. Bill would like a word about all this.

Embroidering this tinfoil hat a bit further:

If FJB were to succumb to Covid leading into the last part of this election season, it would solve more than a few problems for the Democrats. First, it would short-circuit all the problems likely to arise from further reveals on how thoroughly the Ukrainian oligarchs had corrupted the White House. (Old news. Besides, Joe, he daid.)

Second, it would serve to demonstrate that (whatever variant of covid they would say got him) was still deadly, and would justify heavier restrictions and measures – like lockdowns (which would crater the cost of oil, just as they did the first time around) and maybe even mandated mail-in ballots (which was how the election was fraudulently stolen from DJT, and both GOP candidates for Senator in Georgia).

Finally, President Kamala Harris. And…Vice President Michelle Obama?

Of course, this would all have to be accomplished before the election itself…

A Harris/Obama regime? Oof. The one thing we know for absolutely, positively certain, though, is that they’ll do whatever they damned well please, dare Real Americans to do one damned thing about it, and laugh in our damned faces when we don’t.

Publick Announcement

Thanks to an astute suggestion from Barry that I admit had never even occurred to me, plus some clever follow-up sleuthing by SteveF, hopefully our annoying spate of comment-spam has been firmly brought to heel at last. So with that, comment moderation has now been rescinded, hopefully for good. Thanks to both of ya’s for the assist, fellas.

NOTE: A certain number of links embedded in any comment—four I believe it is, if I remember right—will still get you automagickally dumped into the moderation queue pending approval, which I promise SteveF or myself will get on just as quick as he/I possibly can, pas de sweat.

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa
