Chalk up a fatal blow to The Patriarchy. That avatar of toxic masculinity, Mr. Potato Head, has been dumped into the same humid chamber of perdition where the ghosts of Nathan Bedford Forrest, Theodore Bilbo, and Phyllis Schlafly howl and squirm — liberating the billions of potatoes world-wide from the mental prison of binary sexuality. The move by Hasbro (bro? really??) may yet disappoint the legions in Wokesterdom as a-bridge-not-far-enough while they await the debut of Transitioning Potato Head, complete with play hormone syringe and play scalpel, so that the under-six crowd can begin to map out their own gender reassignments without the meddling of Adult 1 and Adult 2, formerly known as Mommy and Daddy.

Was it mere coincidence that the action in Toyland happened the same week that one Rachel Levine was grilled in hir Senate confirmation hearing for the post as Assistant Secretary for Health in the Department of Health and Human Services? The hearing tilted toward transphobia when Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) asked zie, a little too aggressively, if they were in favor of pubescent children opting for sexual reassignment in opposition to xyr parents. The nominee, who hirself transitioned from “male” to “female” in 2011, answered that transgender medical issues are “complex and nuanced.” True (perhaps). And probably more than a Senator who transitioned from ophthalmologist to politician might appreciate.

Such are the great preoccupations of American leadership in these late days of empire. Are there any “historic firsts” left for Progressives to achieve in the march to a transhuman nirvana? An “undocumented” president? Animal representation in the House and Senate? A-I “entities” qualifying for public office — Governor Smartphone? Let’s face it, the pitiful old school humans in charge of things for so long are making a hash of our affairs. A cash register could probably do a better job as Chairman of the Federal Reserve than the always-waffley Jerome Powell. And a MacBook Pro might make a better president than Joe Biden in the brief daily operational hours before his managers “call a lid.” We’d have to come up with some new personal pronouns for them, of course.

Pundits and observers-of-the-scene have warned us that all this artificially-generated turmoil over the sex-of-things is but one part of the prelude to a “Great Reset” in which people the world over are to be herded into corrals of ultra-regulated behavior. Of course, steers and cows are easier to push around than bulls, and the technology for transforming bulls into steers — or men into eunuchs — is not that complex or nuanced. The question is: will enough American men submit to castration, either chemical, financial, political, or literal? Maybe not.

Cheerleaders for the Great Reset underestimate woefully the factor of disorder in the system they so crave to hegemonize. Disorder is exactly what the system is expressing, and in direct proportion to the wishes of authorities to exert tyrannical control over populations. Not only will the disorders get worse, but their effects will go increasingly non-linear, producing unintended consequences. Has anyone noticed that the psychopathic Woke curricula of Higher Ed have mirrored the collapsing business model of the colleges and universities? The more trouble they got themselves into with the loan racket, the crazier the faculty was allowed to act — as far as calling for the extermination of white people and the cancellation of Western Civ. Both the broken business model and intellectual rot will bring down many of these institutions, and quicker than you might believe. And then you will have no Higher Ed. People get what they deserve, not what they expect.

It’s been entertaining, for sure, but as we enter the 2021 springtime, with the banking system coming apart and markets wobbling, and more Americans evicted from both their living quarters and the middle-class, and conflicts between the state and federal governments, and new bouts of street-fighting, looting, and murder in the cities, it won’t be so amusing anymore. There will be a lot more to worry about than the gender of toys.

There isn’t a chance in hell that all Americans will get herded into a corral of cashless, digital currency that amounts to financial castration. Too many of us value the liberty of not having our every money transaction tracked by some Big Brother. As the dollar fails, Texas and Florida may be moved to issue their own currencies, and other states could follow their leads — may even follow them into an epic political realignment independent of the Beltway Swamp. And many citizens of this land have had enough of Google, Facebook, and the rest of the tech monopolies interfering in politics and pushing everyone around. The time has come for the heads of those outfits to start worrying about their own liberty.

      Meanwhile, I moved to a red state and work from there.

      I hate to benefit from CA’s totalitarian collapse into a police state, but … oh well.

      • emme March 2, 2021 at 6:54 pm #

        Wow. The president of the state university in town has stated he wants Fall 2021 as normal as possible. Majority of instruction returned to classrooms, more larger gatherings planned, etc.
        This is an open state; governor left decisions to counties and municipalities regarding masks and reopening. My city does require masks indoors and business occupancy is set at 50%; restaurants open since last June.
        Last week we had the second lowest rate of new cases per 100,000; Hawaii the lowest. Local hospital closed their fancy new covid floor; no need anymore.
        Maybe we are lucky and this is just a lull. But if cases start increasing, the restrictions will just stay as they are locally.
        The state was almost dead last in terms of economic and health care support for those laid off this past year. State and local officials have said straight up there will be no more lockdowns; we simply do not have the safety nets in place to keep people fed and sheltered.
        So, it’s not all roses here, but still seems preferable to being in CA or NY.

        • MaryV March 2, 2021 at 9:16 pm #

          COvid doesn’t even exist. They just rebranded the common cold. It’s been planned for years. Even Pompeo announced it was a ‘live exercise’ back in April.

          You’re being bamboozled at every level. THere is no more health threat than any other flu and cold season. The 2020 pop fatality rate was the same as 2019.

            You are correct, the naturally ocurring coronavirus does. Lots of them, actually!

            COVID19 is a program not a virus – and you get it. It is a hoax.

            No ‘novel’ corona virus with special powers has been isolated.

            There is no proof it’s a bioweapon or that ‘gain of function’ was used.

            These are scare tactics, and has worked to bamboozle most people because they are addicted to the TV and blindly trust authority.

    Only one state secret that could prompt the following events:

    1. A virus is overhyped into a global pandemic and economies are intentionally slowed.
    2. A effort is made to distract everyone with turmoil over race and gender.
    3. The Supreme Court defies the constitution to reject an uncooperative president after a dubious election is condoned by the information providers.
    4. Governments are promoting ineffectual green energy.
    5. The United States has been fracking oil at a loss.

    Yes, that’s right, we have less than a decade of oil remaining on the planet.
    The coming chain of events will be medieval.

          Ever hear of biofuel?

          Ethanol is made from cellulose and it powers dragsters and funny cars. Hemp and switchgrass two weeds are perfect for this forget corn terrible source.
          Diesel was made from hemp oil.
          There are plenty of ways to power the future without destroying the now.
          “Green energy” is not going to do it and it is a huge misnomer.
          There is nothing green about most of it.
          Batteries are toxic and the elements used to create them are every bit is destructive to get at as oil ever was.
          The windmills are eyesores that murder birds at insane numbers and pollute the landscape to boot.

            Biofuel is a net negative EROEI. It takes more energy to produce a gallon of biofuel than the fuel itself produces.

            Where do you grow the food that used to grow where the biofuel crops are going to grow (in massive quantity)?

            I think Lawfish is probably right. I recall Monbiot, whom I find to be honest, did an excellent take down of biofuels an age ago when they were the next big thing. Found pretty much the same thing. And asked about the food.

            People jump on any old bandwagon. I remember when you weren’t a proper yuppie unless you got yourself a wood-burning stove. And now it turns out wood-burning stoves are a bigger source of dangerous particulates in the UK than vehicles, so they’ve had to change the regulations.

            Probably doesn’t matter if you’re a rancher in Wyoming, but it does if you’re a lecturer in Liverpool.

            That is the point of hemp and switch grass.
            They are weeds that can grow almost anywhere given very little and still grow really well.
            They grow in poor dirt with very little water and needs next to no input.
            Throw the seed out and water them a little bit.
            The hemp needs more water but in certain areas grows in ditches to heights of twenty or more feet.

          • GreenAlba March 1, 2021 at 12:41 pm #

            OK, I defer to you re the technology, benr, but I’m still not convinced about the scale.

            Perhaps as part of the ‘bit of everything’ solution, along the lines of what JohnAZ proposes.

            Although maybe solution is the wrong word anyway. I’m remembering that trite but not exactly untrue saying that ‘if it’s a problem, it has a solution; if it has no solution, it’s a fact and has to be faced’.

            So whatever transport ‘solutions’ there are, it seems to me that the transport fact is that there will be less transport.

          • benr March 1, 2021 at 12:48 pm #

            @ga California alone could grow enough hemp and switch grass to power the nation.
            Texas as well.
            We have so much farmland fallow or worse paid to grow and then grind the crop under to keep prices stable.

            Nonsense if you can grow regular grass you can grow switchgrass or even just use grass trimmings any plant product can be used You just need to convert cellulose to sugar and ferment it.

            Ethanol

            Ethanol is the main liquid biofuel and can be produced from switchgrass through the two major processes described below.

            Biochemical Conversion: In cases of corn grain and sweet sorghum stalks, sugars are directly fermented to ethanol by adding enzymes and yeast. Cellulosic feedstocks are more difficult to break down into fermentable sugars than starch- or sugar-based feedstocks. The cellulosic biochemical conversion process requires additional steps. Two key steps are biomass pretreatment and cellulose hydrolysis. During pretreatment, the hemicellulose part of the biomass is broken down into simple sugars and removed for fermentation. During cellulose hydrolysis, the cellulose part of the biomass is broken down into the simple sugar, glucose.

            Xylose is the most prevalent pentose sugar released by the hemicellulose hydrolysis reaction. In this step, xylose is fermented, using Zymomonas mobilis or other genetically engineered bacteria. The glucose fermentation reaction is caused by yeast or bacteria, which feed on the sugars. As the sugars are consumed, ethanol and carbon dioxide are produced. Lignin and other byproducts of the biomass-to-ethanol process can be burned to produce electricity required for the ethanol production process. Burning lignin actually creates more energy than is needed, and selling electricity may help the processes economics.

            @Lawfish

            There never was and will never be such a thing as positive EROEI.

            “No energy store holds enough energy to extract, collect and utilise an amount of energy equal to the total energy it stores.

            No energy system can produce sum useful energy in excess of the total energy put into constructing it.

            This universal truth applies to all energy systems.

            Energy, like time, flows from past to future“.

            Sadi Carnot, William Jevons, Rudolf Clausius, Boltzmann, Hubert and schools of other geniuses have dismissed looking at the role of root energiesand that is exactly how fossil fuels are dangerously hypnotic and intoxicating for humans.

            Wailing.

          This is not to detract from what you wrote, Jacques. You are fundamentally correct: we are on the downslope of high-EROEI oil production, and we have not moved to replace that major component of energy supply with the only thing that could match it: nuclear.

          But we can run trucks and planes on batteries; there are already short-range battery powered planes that are far more efficient and less costly to run than turboprops.

          They will not, of course, replace jets.

          • feralandroid March 1, 2021 at 11:39 am #

            Last time I looked, the size of the battery needed to run a modern big rig truck is almost the entire size of the carrying capacity. Do you have different numbers?

            Any opinion on liquid fluoride thorium reactors? I’ve seen some presentations by Kirk Sorensen promoting the technology, but haven’t looked into it enough to make any determination of feasibility. If it is a viable energy source, it could potentially increase domestic production of rare earth minerals as thorium is said to be a large part of the waste generated by rare earth mining.

            That said, I think using less energy is a more rational strategy than trying to find more sources.

            FA, for short delivery trucks, not so bad. Long-haul is going to need to be diesel, no question.

            Imagine a delivery fleet like UPS, though, where you charge at night and use during the day. Most of the time the truck is stopped, so you can run a fleet that way.

          =================================================

          how do you explain all the massive oil discoveries AFTER the previously predicted declines that were supposed to happen in the 80s 90s etc?

          name a few resources that have been exhausted

          a new technology/resource always takes its place before it runs out, e.g. fracking

          “Based on U.S. coal production in 2019, of about 0.706 billion short tons, the recoverable coal reserves would last about 357 years, and recoverable reserves at producing mines would last about 20 years.”

          US has the most coal of any country in the world

          https://www.eia.gov/energyexplained/coal/how-much-coal-is-left.php

          Add in nuclear if they would just build it

          There are even nascent Air To Fuel (ATF) plants that produce synthetic fuels by taking CO2 out of the atmosphere.

          Colour me not worries

      3. The same information providers that have shown themselves to be not liberal, but progressive. They want global control, favoring worldwide use of their databases. They are TT, totally totalitarian in their desires, to run the world.

      An instructor in my past gave a really relevant example of the revolutionary progressive psyche. He use Fidel Castro. Fidel needed to overthrow something so he had a campaign to overthrow Batista in Cuba , and it worked. After he consolidated his power base, his desire for progressive power went to a low ebb, he was bored. So we saw the drive to overthrow Latin America, country by country. The US canceled his stamp effectively, which enraged him.

      A good description of what these progressive jerks really want, anarchism and discord. They need to be destroyed for society’s sake, not coddled.

      Apparently, everyone has forgotten that coal can be turned into petroleum using a process German chemists developed decades ago. It’s expensive, but it’s a hell of a lot better than waiting for Al Gore to blos the sail atop my car so I can get halfway down the block. As for battery power? Please. You need a source of electricity. As the eco-freaks have blocked all feasible ways to generate the necessary amounts of electricity. Also, creating the batteries involves toxic chemicals, environmental damage, and explosion hazards in the batteries themselves. We can’t pursue hydrogen, of course, because Dubya tried to push it.

    Yes it appears we are living in the Long Emergency a book I read over a decade ago. We can only wonder what is next With Bomb Back Better Biden holding himself up at the helm. Even the richest of rich would trade it all for a bag of potatoes if they were starving. Which leaves us wonder how long a hungry American public can remain peaceful as resources dry up.

    • JohnAZ March 1, 2021 at 10:55 am #

      Just starting into The Long Emergency, it will get a lot rougher as resources, especially oil, deplete.

      Where is the plan? We should be pushing forward with replacement plans for FF wherever possible, we will need everything in the future. Biden’s plan is idiocy, just turn off the spigot and supply and demand will fix the problem. BS.

      Particulates, especially diesel exhaust are dangerous to human respiratory systems. Why do we put up with the brown cloud, get rid of diesels. Soon! Good first step.

      Electric cars? Two problems, our electric grid sucks, and the cars have insufficient range and cost too much by a factor of two. As long as we insist on renewables as the expansion of electricity, we will never triple the electricity generation as even conservative estimates say we need. We need nuclear, with hydrogen back up as JHK suggests inTLE.

      JohnAZ– I did not say that in TLE. I wrote that hydrogen was a non-starter… even if nuclear was the only way to keep the lights on, and even nuclear was fraught with drawbacks, starting from their reliance on an underlying FF economy. — JHK Admin.

      Renewables as Michael Moore and now Texas have demonstrated are a joke, a Leftist power tool, that are leading us down Alice’s rabbit hole into Fantasyland. If we follow their recipe, we will end up as a feudal state world wide. Hey, just like the Dems want us to be, serfs serving the Elite.

      The cars are too damned expensive and do not go far enough between charges. They are improving but to be a mainstream transportation, they are decades away. Batteries need lots more R&D, and someone needs to develop something that works with our rare earths. With rare earths in the pipeline, we are right where we are with oil, wondering when it will run out.

      Sidebar. The Feds are fixing to spend $1.9 trillion dollars on pork. Well, 91% of it. I wonder, if they gave everyone the difference between the current median value of a car and a new “Tesla”, how far $1.7 trillion dollars would go.

      • oswegatchie March 1, 2021 at 11:19 am #

          Planet of the Humans, maybe? It is a good starting point.

          If we do not design a 100% reliable nuclear plant, right now, and start building hundreds of them, oil is going to run out with no replacement. Billions, not millions will die if that happens.

          China understands this, as they continue building coal fired power plants. And laughing their butts off at the idiots in DC.

            It is very unlikely that anyone will be able to come up with such a nuclear power plant.
            We might squeak through if someone can develop a lightweight, high-capacity battery that can be charged very quickly and is made from non-toxic materials. With such batteries, we could collect charge from solar cells (or catch and store lightning bolts) and use the power when needed.

            Supercapacitors have some of these characteristics. I remember getting a toy electric airplane for my son that was powered by a small supercapacitor. It would fly for 15 minutes if you charged it for 20 minutes….

            Maybe a “Battery Nobel Prize” competition? It is unlikely that this would work out, but maybe worth trying.

        The Chevy Volt was an interesting car, and it has been abandoned. You could run it for short distances on electricity entirely. If you needed a longer distance, you would use the small gasoline engine to recharge the batteries and so not suffer range anxiety. One problem was that drivers would use the gas engine so little that the gas would go stale on them, showing that most of their trips were short.

        It was unique. Chevy dropped it in favor of the all-electric Bolt, with longer electric-only range and much shorter overall range.

    There can be no restoration of America without the necessary values and norms to provide the foundation of a culture. That is essentially what has been lost and I don’t see how anything like that can be accomplished with family and church so completely obliterated. The new dark ages will have to provide some way to allow families in small groups to continue the nucleus of cultural life along the lines of principles of order. We are further along in social disintegration than any other nation-state in the world.

            Religion, in its essence, should be consciously guided spiritual self-cultivation. I.e., we all know it would be better to be a better person, right? We should aspire to be, if not perfect, at least a good deal better.

            Religion should offer a ideal to aspire to and prescribe spiritual exercises and devotional/meditation practices to that end. This process is what, in some Eastern philosophies, is referred to as “The Work.”

            What is entailed in this is the process of refining the physical, emotional, and intellectual natures so as to place them under the governance of the will and of our spiritual nature.

            To become aware of our spiritual nature is to know who we are–and who we are is the Divine in microcosm.

            This process is poorly understood and seldom practiced–and not even much on offer from our religious institutions.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder March 2, 2021 at 9:01 am #

            I agree. Regardless of whether one attends church, the concept of bettering oneself by being held accountable to a higher power is one of the more admirable qualities in human history.

            Ovbiously it’s been abused mightily by religious leaders to gain power…but that doesn’t change the fact that attempting to be better is something we should try to do.

            But now it is out of fashion to believe in a ghost man in the sky, and in fashion to be self-indulgent, narcissistic and accountable to nothing (except maybe Twitter).

        New Hampshire License Plates: Live free or die.

        Sixties song: Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose.

        Put them together: When you attain unto nothingness, you will die. Live free AND die.

        What we call freedom in a more conventional sense is the result of a long process of political reform beginning with the Magna Carta and ending with the Constitution. Beyond that, as Bhagavad Gita says, no man can live without acting even for a moment. And since all actions have consequences, there is no absolute freedom in this world. There is choosing well and choosing poorly. Absolute Freedom is only in the Beyond, with the All Father.

        The unsung hero of American history is George Mason. Without his efforts, there would quite possibly be no Bill of Rights. Some countered that the State Bills of Rights would still be in effect. But he forsaw that under the Constitution as written, the Federal Government was going to dominate – much to his chagrin. He ended up not signing in the end, but his efforts proved fruitful none the less.

        From the wiki:

        Going into the convention, Mason wanted to see a more powerful central government than under the Articles, but not one that would threaten local interests. He feared that the more numerous Northern states would dominate the union, and would impose restrictions on trade that would harm Virginia, so he sought a supermajority requirement for navigation acts.[89] As was his constant objective, he sought to preserve the liberty he and other free white men enjoyed in Virginia, guarding against the tyranny he and others had decried under British rule. He also sought a balance of powers, seeking thereby to make a durable government; according to historian Brent Tarter, “Mason designed his home [Gunston Hall] so that no misplaced window or missing support might spoil the effect or threaten to bring down the roof; he tried to design institutions of government in the same way, so that wicked or unprincipled men could not knock loose any safeguards of liberty”.[90]

        Yoho: People like Hamilton thought all this was unnecessary, that the “checks and balances” would be enough to insure liberty, lol. I doubt if he really believed that….

        • Blackbird March 1, 2021 at 2:48 pm #

        Doc Tom – “What evidence do you have for that? Or will you insist that if you don’t desire freedom, you aren’t human?”

        I’d give you that one for sure. There’s more evidence that the general population doesn’t give a shit about freedom than there is that they do.

        But those that freedom does matter to are the ones who have made a difference throughout history. Sometimes even to a good result. Though sometimes not…flames can be pinched out easily when no one cares to fan them in the right direction.

        • DrTomSchmidt March 1, 2021 at 9:19 pm #

      There is only a small subset of humans that desire freedom above all else. It took me many decades to realize this.

      • Soul Forensics March 1, 2021 at 3:29 pm #

        Yes. A wise comment.

        I would just add that the drive for security, itself, comes from fundamental insecurity, and can never be resolved by thinking (planning, acquiring, building a fortress, improving one’s financial situation, fighting for political reform — though on the relative level, these can all be helpful).

        It’s classic Advaita Vedanta. The eye cannot see itself. The knife cannot cut itself. The mind cannot cancel its own thoughts.

      • Redneck Liberal March 1, 2021 at 4:05 pm #

        The definition of ‘freedom’ is entirely subjective. Freedom from hunger, freedom from want, freedom from fear, freedom to pursue happiness.

        These sorts of things are more important than the type of ‘freedom’ expounded by the confused right-wing-brigade for whom freedom is the right to carry an AR15 anywhere they wish, the freedom to go broke because they suffer a medical event, the freedom to catch & spread a viral disease because…’freedom!’

        Even the Libertarian definition of freedom includes the obligation to not harm others by one’s actions.

        • MrMangoOnMyShoulder March 1, 2021 at 8:07 pm #

          I see nothing subjective in your argument. They are all the same thing, mean the same thing, and stem from the same idea.

          Some ideas are better than others, sure. But the freedom to do something offensive is the same as the freedom to sleep late or go out and pick some morels for dinner. Not subjective.

          And in a society, yes, as long as you don’t harm others following the same rules. But then the others have the freedom to let you know you’ve overstepped.

    By making Andrew’s downfall about sexual harassment, they provde cover for the other states which took actions very similar to what Cuomo and Zucker did in NY.

          When infected people – with any virus – are put into a nursing home, that puts all residents at risk. That’s why you don’t do it.

    Rachel Levin was head of public health in Pennsylvania when covid hit. She took her own mother out of a nursing home but refused to let others do so. Her “defense” was her usual non-answer. There’s also missing data and death information from 100 out of 693 nursing homes. From what I’ve read about her, her main interest is LBQ etc. issues.

    The Washington Post’s headline of Senator Paul’s questioning is : ” Rand Paul’s ignorant questioning of Rachel Levine showed why we need her in government” It’s an accepted medical fact that children’s brains don’t completely mature until early twenties.

      Yeah, sexual dysphoria, commonly called adolescence, is a rite of passage for every single person on earth. Delayed development have goofed up many young people for example.

      However, studies of folks in their late teens show that everyone has adjusted well to their male or female bodies.

      IMHO, sexual changes are fine, after the age of maybe 21, when some one is really uncomfortable in their bodies. There will not be many volunteers.

      Which is what Levin is after, get them when they are young. Why is it that if someone is different, they want everyone to be the same as them. That is the main theme of the LBGTQ community.

      I equate the sexual butchery of the young teen community equal to the Nazi medical experiments in the death camps. Hideous!!!

        We have a friend of the family who, as a very young man, was extremely self conscious and critical of his appearance.

        I remember one time bringing pictures into the office, it was something you were expected to do back then, and one of my co-workers, after seeing our friend in one of them exclaimed, “he’s a handsome boy!”

        He was notably good looking, and had a relatively mild case of body dysmorphic disorder (which he seems to have outgrown).

      • Soul Forensics March 1, 2021 at 3:47 pm #

        “Dysphoria” is a bogus word. It’s a new addition, coined circa 1850, but not much used until the gender terrorists grabbed onto it. It means a “general dissatisfaction with life”. IOW, it applies to everybody, many for significant portions of their lives.

        So the Woke terrorists have weaponized a word, the meaning of which is relevant and applicable to everyone, and sequestered it to apply to an exclusive mini-mini-mini subset of truly troubled youngsters, from toddlers to teens. But the tiny fraction-of-one-per cent are now supposed to be representative of ALL young people, normalizing every passing curiosity of what it would be like to live as the other sex, into a proof that that curiosity means they’re “trapped in the wrong body”.

        Just wait till people buy their own potatoes, not being able to afford Hasbro’s $19 plastic TransPotatoHead. The kids’ll have to keep cutting out the green parts so they don’t get poisoned when, curious, they crunch them, trying to transition by the Catholic symbolism of eating the flesh of the host.

      “It’s an accepted medical fact that children’s brains don’t completely mature until early twenties.” That’s why ya gotta get them when they’re young enough that an anatomically-incorrect spud is seen as a trusted peer. Make sure neither their minds nor their genitals ever mature. Turn them into a bunch of mudpuppies (Necturus maculosus) aroused by their own reflected images on the fishbowl of neoteny.

        Adolescence is tough enough without confusing them further and making making becoming trans or a glorified option. Kids who are lonely have an immediate friend group (even if it’s just online), instant advocates, and automatic victim status. If their parents resist then they’re the oppressors. It’s a mess and IMHO, it’s a form of brainwashing.

          There are a lot of things no sane society would have done with kids. Neil Postman wrote The Disappearance of Childhood some years back and was spot on what was happening — and, of course, with iPhones and the internet, it’s accelerated. We pretend to protect them but they’re the target of innumerable ads, age inappropriate clothing, and encouraged to adopt political and moral opinions that are beyond their understanding. If this isn’t brainwashing, what is?

        Thanks for pointing that out. One would think it would not be necessary, but sadly it is for some.

        Honestly, I don’t see how this disgusting drag queen gets by with it. He didn’t even do a very good job of trying to disguise himself as a female. He simply looks like a caricature of a women – like in the old days when men showed up at parties dressed in drag as a big fat joke to make others guffaw, point, and laugh at their outrageous costume.

        One small quibble: This dude may be a biological male, but he certain is no real man in my book. He is a mentally ill freak.

    The time has come for the heads of those outfits to start worrying about their own liberty. – JHK

    ==

    Their Vatican/CIA PSYOPS gov mafia propaganda is designed to drive sane people insane. It has been meticulously planned by hundreds of human behavioralists, and meticulously implemented by having the right people placed at the right places, to all act together at the right time. Nothing happens by accident. Our imagination and understanding of what’s going on, doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of how deep and extensive the conspiracy really is.

    As a principle of cardinal Hebrew Justice and Law (An eye for an eye) the heads of these Vatican/CIA gov mafia PSYOPS outfits should all be made transgender faggots. Some of them like Jack Dorsey are already mostly there. But there’s no reason why the rest should not be made to follow suit. No kids or any future for them, just endless backdoor thumping until their Satanic eyes pop out.

        Did you see him admit errors and faults? The man issued an executive order in 2018 that gave himself permission to undo the foreign interference in the election. He did nothing.

        I can forgive that. What I cannot forgive is the rally on January 6th, an obvious target for infiltration, where he refused to issue a blanket pardon for any MAGA who did not engage in violent behavior. He did that to protect himself from criticism, while he freed various scammers with final pardons; the people swept up in the crowd are going to get crucified.

        If you haven’t read it, this is a superb picture of the inside of what happened on election fraud. It’s fascinating. Trump never got people in place to effect policy, even when his stolen Presidency was on the line.
        https://www.deepcapture.com/2021/01/november-3-december-23-all-the-presidents-teams/

        He was a 4-year respite from Hillary, who would have been neutered by a Republican House and Senate. Now we face the Woke Apocalypse: Trump motivated his opponents, but did not turn out white men in 2020 as strongly as 2016.

        • Yohannon March 1, 2021 at 12:38 pm #

          He divined their intent. But seeing something and stopping it are two different things. They knew they were far more prepared and went for it. He either didn’t have the balls or knew that it would come down to pure force as they already had the basic system under their control. And maybe he realized he didn’t have the army either.

          The Secret Service telling him that they couldn’t (wouldn’t?) protect him next term couldn’t have helped either.

          • DrTomSchmidt March 1, 2021 at 4:52 pm #

            He flapped his arms, threatened stuff, and they called his bluff. He was very good at bluffing as a developer, but DC has a sharkier player than NYC real estate. He was clearly loved by some on the right, but feared by nobody on the left.

            Machiavelli would tell you how big an error that was.

            In the end, he was hated more than feared. I suspect that nobody voted for Biden as much as voted against Trump. A major own-goal.

        • abbybwood March 1, 2021 at 4:24 pm #

          I read where the FBI is basically just considering the charge of criminal trespass for the vast majority who were in the Capitol on the 6th.

          I am interested in any charges being filed in the Ashley Babbit murder. There are clear pictures of the shooter. A civil case perhaps brought by her family?

            That would be a relief, Abby. Even better would be for Biden to pardon anyone who wasn’t violent. It might steal the MAGAs from their hero,who led them to disaster and left them to rot.

        Great point. For me the political function of the Right is to make the world safe not for some abstraction like ‘democracy’ but for the individual to pursue the true nature of reality wherever it may lead.

        • Blackbird March 1, 2021 at 3:38 pm #

          Sunburst, I see that (pursuit of the true nature of reality) as the legitimate function of the Left too. Unfortunately, neither parties of the right nor the left seem to agree with me on that issue.

        • DrTomSchmidt March 1, 2021 at 4:59 pm #

          I think of it light information theory. In order to transmit a message, information (which is surprise) has to travel on a low-entropy channel. It has to be a calm, low-noise transmission method.

          There cannot be innovation with a high-entropy channel. The left keeps up throwing out crazy ideas, some of them actually not bad (at least in the past.) the role of the Right is to act as a filter, helping us keep what from the past worked, setting a high barrier to new ideas, but stably accepting new ones that prove their worth.

          In some sense, the problem is a lack of Right action to provide the stable base of society, so we have no filtering mechanism to decide which Left ideas are good, and which are nuts and ought to be opposed with all strength.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder March 1, 2021 at 8:26 pm #

          That’s exactly correct. A proper right doesn’t mean stasis, but it does mean the dead get a vote, and the future does too. The left is always happy to start every year as year 0, throwing out the accumulated learning of ages. Some Left ideas have been good, but there’s no longer a mechanism to measure them.

          The right as existing only to certify, five years later, every leftist idea, is not the Right.

      • Yohannon March 1, 2021 at 12:45 pm #

        The Right is Fascism, even as the Left says. But they say it like it’s a bad thing. Alas most allowed themselves to be shamed or pretend that we didn’t take this continent by force. And that a nation can be built without violence or maintained without it.

        In the Old West, when a fast draw sheriff and a hanging judge were able to bring back law and order, they would typically be rewarded by being voted out of office by the “good Christians” in the town. Liars in other words, Pharisees who can’t stand the dirt of life – who can’t see that the dirt is the soil from which all things grow.

        My Aunt used to do a bit of gardening. She always had a look of disgust on her face as she did it. Getting “dirty”. Hopeless little people.

        The Left is comfortable with the dirt and with violence. They are lying when they shame us in this way. But until we heal this divide in our consciousness, their lies will continue to work on us.

    • Beryl of Oyl March 1, 2021 at 11:56 am #

      I remember when one of the Leftist mantras was Question Authority.

      It was often interpreted to mean reject authority, but what it really meant was to question whether the person claiming jurisdiction over your freedom had that power.

      It can and should also be taken to mean we should not give up our own critical thinking, but question whether or not the “experts” really do know better.

    Speaking of herding bulls vs steers, I watched a video discussing dropping testosterone counts in males in many countries. I am not sure if it is worldwide or what.

        Russian fertility clinics take a different approach than American ones, and they tend to have better success rates.

        One of the things they do differently is to get all plastic out of the prospective mother’s environment.

    • Yohannon March 1, 2021 at 12:48 pm #

      One word: Plastics. For some reason, they mimic estrogen in the human body.

    • Anthea March 2, 2021 at 11:47 pm #

      I think it is probably safe to say that one of the effects is the disruption of the relations between the sexes.

      Are today’s young men markedly less “manly” than a young man of 1950? I don’t have any way of knowing. But if you assume they are less manly, it more or less follows that women would respond to them differently. And women too are experiencing widespread hormonal disorders, such as estrogen dominance, which also changes feminine behaviors.

      I wonder what’s causing these hormonal aberrations?

      I think that it’s possible that it is a biological response to population density–as can be seen in rabbits in overly dense populations. Of course it also seems likely that environmental contaminants play a role.

    Some reflection is in order: Ancient societies were populated by gay and trans folk and in the collapsed societies of the present and future there will be gay and trans folk. There are gay and trans folk where there are people. Sadly, there is also intolerance where there are people.

    • Beryl of Oyl March 1, 2021 at 12:22 pm #

      If there were gay and trans folk in ancient societies, they were not created using modern medicine and surgery.

        “If being opposed to drugging and mutilating children to turn them into something other than what they were born is intolerant, good.”

        Too late for the castrati who were created to sing more beautifully for the glory of God. The Papal states were the last to make the practice illegal. It wasn’t modern medicine, but it was mutilation just the same. I won’t think about anaesthetics at the time.

        Trans folk are not the same as gay folk, except where homophobia pushes parents to think trans is better than gay. That goes on here as well as in Iran – it’s only the state coercion that’s missing.

            Haha! Yes I’ve been up Craiglockhart Hill – it’s within walking distance of my street (even at my age).

            Coincidentally, it fits with this week’s topic, as we met a trans person at the top. Or perhaps just a cross dresser. Difficult to tell. Anyway s/he was the only one I’ve ever met (I’m not counting the ‘lady’ in a Lisbon patisserie who was only a fleeting glance). Our trans person, on the top of Craiglockhart Hill, was dressed in middle-aged-lady-from-the-1950s gear but sounded like a man.

            S/he came over to speak to us and was extremely knowledgeable about the ancient history/archeology of the hill.

            If you’ve ever seen the film ‘Regeneration’ about Siegried Sassoon and others, it takes place in Craiglockhart Hospital, which looked after the shell-shocked of WWI (no longer a hospital, but part of Napier University).

          The myriad so-called “genders” are, for the most part, merely varied sexual fetishes. I think it would be difficult to make case that there is any social (or even personal) advantage encouraging any very high level of interest in the multiplicity of sexual fetishes. There is still less reason for embracing, encouraging, or celebrating them. It is, at the very least, simply puerile.

          Some people have a foot fetish, some people are into redheads, some enjoy the cuckhold fetish, some people like garter belts, and some old men like to dress up like Little Bo Peep. Some people are same-sex oriented.

          If, like Fiona in Shrek, they absolutely must take “love’s true form,” it would better accord with longstanding cultural traditions if they would abstain from the public display of their sexual fetishes, and stick to taking “love’s true form” in the bedroom.

        There is evidence of a truly ancient gender difference among Samoans – fa’afafine. It is thousands of years old and is culturally recognized and accepted.

      By definition, nations must be Heteronormative. It’s not just a matter of “love” or what individuals like. It’s a matter or reproduction and the raising of children. Do I have to say it? Heterosexuals are more valuable to society as a group.

      • Braelynn March 1, 2021 at 1:33 pm #

        Of course you had to say it. Your patriarchal privilege would not allow you to avoid it.

          @ Yohannon

          My intent was not to be abrupt but rather to express that these situations are about the individuals. The point is specifically that group dynamics or “needs” often endanger them and place them in peril. The population crisis appears to suggest that heteronormativity is the least of our concerns.

          • Yohannon March 1, 2021 at 2:27 pm #

            Individual rights depend on the health of group. You endanger that with all this. Hetero right are human rights – and on them depends the future. Tranny story hour? No. Just no. No access to kids can be allowed. And no trying to convince autistic kids that they’re the opposite gender.

            “The population crisis appears to suggest that heteronormativity is the least of our concerns.”

            Errr…did you not see the earlier mention of sperm counts down by upwards of 60% since 1970? The new population crisis will have nothing to do with too many people. It will, however, have to do with maintaining some semblance of community as things volley back and forth from better to worse…such community is first and foremost (throughout all of recorded history) based on the concept of family.

            Also, I agree with you that it’s about the individual. That’s why guaranteeing freedoms is an important thing. But to take individuals’ concerns and spread them forcibly across the rest of the population is not exactly a solution. It may help some feel more comfortable, but also encourages others to try to attain that special status as a goal. That is not necessarily healthy. Nature has its strengths and its lackings. Everyone has some of both.

            Not everyone became a high-school karate champion after watching The Karate Kid. It made a lot of kids think about doing it, but that doesn’t mean that everyone should.

        ” It’s not just a matter of “love” or what individuals like. It’s a matter or reproduction and the raising of children.”

        So the homosexual cohort has much in common with the cohort of celibate priests, who not only do not contribute to reproduction and the raising of children, but have no problem giving advice and guidance about things they know nothing about?

        • Yohannon March 1, 2021 at 5:47 pm #

          Maybe if you still had real priests, you’d still have real nations over there that wouldn’t allow things like this. Unhinged individualism is a big part of the Communist agenda, at least in the West.

          • GreenAlba March 1, 2021 at 7:08 pm #

            I have no problem with priests, ‘real’ or otherwise, telling you what to do. I just suggested that it might be helpful to have at least some married ones, given the kind of advice and guidance they give out.

            It shouldn’t require a priest to tell anyone that what’s described in your article isn’t OK. I could have told you it’s not OK. The vast majority of people in the UK would tell you it’s not OK.

            Online prescriptions and improper online ‘consultations’ are not limited to this issue.

      Do you regret this post now? It is a half truth but you are missing the other piece. You can’t force people to accept people. Of course there is always going to be intolerance. Hasn’t there been ever since there have been people as you say? But in on this particular issue in this particular time it is much more that just a shifting of the musical chairs. There is a purposeful and intentional agenda to push proclivities that have always been in the minority to be as if they are majoritarian. This is not and will never be the true case. Real gay people are a very tiny percentage of the population. There may be more now simply because of constant cultural and social propaganda. And trans people are an even much tinier minority. But of course now all of these people believe they are trans because of constant propaganda and literal encouragement. I am not suggesting intolerance. But I also agree that these types of things are personal and why did they have to be announced to the world and rubbed in everyones’ faces?

    Who owns the Center at this point in our national history? Neither the Left nor the Right can lay claim to it at present, which is a very interesting state of affairs. I predict, even as it moves to consolidate its power under a Biden presidency, the Left will continue to lose adherents at an ever more rapid pace. This proves even though people may not know what they want, they certainly know what they don’t want.

    • Yohannon March 1, 2021 at 1:07 pm #

      Well said. If people had only Looked, they could have Seen. But instead they kept all their hate filled attention focused on Trump. Naomi Wolf said if she had known Biden would keep us locked down, she wouldn’t have voted for him. Where was she? He said as much all along.

        Superficially this seems to be the case I grant you, however I am convinced the dems and the Left have no control over the deep, subterranean powers which rule in the lives of human beings; powers which emanate from the heart and soul and speak of our inherent, unquenchable desire for freedom from all that is falsehood and deceit.

    Dear Admiral Padorin,

    It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that I intend to defect to the United States of America, as the country existed in 1921. My wife’s forced transitioning from female to male, by order of the party, was the last straw. Our society tramples the sacred, so I would sooner court my mistress the sea in a polyamorous relationship, where the deep blue is shared by all my shipmates and myself.

    The porn websites have taken hold of our cultures youngest minds. Now young men line up to have their testicles and balls removed to appease party officials. Feminists congratulate these poor bastards on their sacrifice, being free of manhood; while at the same time congratulating their sister’s mastectomies and being free of womanhood. Orgies precede the psychologist sanctioned mutilations – What comes after for the new eunuchs is truly fucked up. I believe young men are submitting to this because the dating market is impossible otherwise. Being dickless is a novelty for American women, arguably the most privileged insulated minority to ever exist.

    The evidence for this sin is all apparent on websites such as fetlife.com. Unfortunately, the depths of fetlife requires a user account to access, laying just beyond the reach of a google search.
    I hope the likes of Howard Kunstler will sign up for fetlife and just take a little while to browse around and determine how real the push for castration is. Hard core porn has truly gone mainstream on the facebook of sex.

    Feminism truly has gone off the rails. Where men tend to come in variety, women come as a homogenous group clustering around the average on the bell curve. Whatever social programming is being fed to women today, it has turned many in their ranks into monsters all to eager to mutilate their fellow man. (Fuck the PC humankind speak)

    It is for these reasons I am taking my giant penis shaped submarine filled with all the nuclear arsenals of toxic masculinity, and am launching the warheads under my command at the tribes of woksterdom. So Comrade Yuri – If you are at your desk. You’d better get under it.

    Sincerely,

    Campus Reform

    Cornell charges students $1,800 for racially-segregated rock climbing class, frantically scrubs website when confronted
    A Cornell University course titled “BIPOC Rock Climbing,” was originally restricted to “people who identify as Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, or other people of color.”
    When Campus Reform contacted the school, Cornell officials edited the course description to remove the race-based enrollment restriction.

    Cornell University altered the course description of a racially-segregated physical education course offered to students during the Spring 2021 academic semester after Campus Reform reached out for comment.

    The class, entitled “BIPOC Rock Climbing,” was originally restricted to “people who identify as Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, or other people of color,” before its description was edited to state that the class is “designed to enable Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, or other people of color underrepresented in the sport of rock climbing to learn the sport and to feel included and supported.”

    The course’s original description, noting the class’s race-based enrollment restriction, is still visible, courtesy of an internet archive.

    [RELATED: Cornell considers mandatory ‘anti-racism’ course]

    According to the new description, posted on Cornell’s website, the class will provide a “high degree of individual attention” and a “supportive space” where students will discuss “BIPOC individuals and groups in rock climbing.” The new description states that the class is now “open to all” students who are “interested in learning rock climbing with this special focus.”

    The total price for students taking the course is $1,890—including the standard cost of a one-credit course, $1,575, and an additional mandatory “course fee” of $315.

    When asked for comment, John Carberry, Cornell’s Senior Director of Media Relations and News, issued a statement to Campus Reform claiming that “all Cornell students” are “welcome” to enroll in the course, contradicting the original course description.

    Carberry insisted that the course’s original description reflected an “intentional focus” on “outreach and inclusion,” but that there was “never” any intention to exclude students that don’t identify as BIPOC.

    “All Cornell students are welcome to enroll in this course. While the original description of the course represented an intentional focus on outreach and inclusion, there was never an intent to exclude non-minority students. The description of the course has been adjusted accordingly,” Carberry said.

    According to the New York State Attorney General’s website, “Students in New York schools are protected by federal, state, and local laws that prevent discrimination on the basis of race, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, religion, disability, and other categories.”

    Additionally, the New York Human Rights Law “makes it illegal” for “non-sectarian educational institutions” to “deny their services to students on the basis of race, color, religion, disability, national origin, sexual orientation, military status, sex, age or marital status.”

    A post on the r/Cornell subreddit page referencing the class titled “End Racially Segregated PE Classes at Cornell” generated significant discussion and backlash.

    One user noted that under the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, schools “cannot be segregated” based on race, and another described “Critical Race Theory” as “f****** toxic.”

    Still, others defended the existence of racially-segregated courses at Cornell, with one declaring that the “intention” of the class is to “provide an affinity space” for “BIPOC students to feel comfortable and extra supported in a historically White dominated area of outdoor recreation.”

    Another user claimed that segregating rock climbing at Cornell brings more “diversity” into the class’s “pool of participants,” comparing the class to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). HBCUs do not limit their enrollments based on race or ethnicity.

    Campus Reform reached out to representatives of the university’s Outdoor Education program but did not receive responses in time for publication.

    Yoho: I’m fine with this as long as Whites can have their own classes, spaces, dances, and graduation ceremonies. Blacks clearly want their own nation. Why not give it to them?

    Civil Rights and Equality were obviously always a ruse. As Jefferson said, these people want to be free from us. If allowed to stay in our company, they will attempt to dominate us and tear us down. The Lifeforce compels them to do this, as we are an alien civilization to them.

      brh, I’ve ignored this for months, but I feel I should point out that there has never been an aim to reduce the global average temperature by 1.5 degrees (Celsius). That could take thousands of years, for all we know. The aim has been to limit the increase to 2 degrees, and preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to pre-industrial levels.

        Alba,

        Why would it take thousands of years to reduce the temperature by 1.5 degrees Celsius? If it can be supposed to be raised by that amount in 150 years due to FF, shouldn’t the opposite be true as well?

        Climate stuff just doesn’t sit well with me. Reduce pollution? Sure. Absolutely a good cause Pretend we can make the entire world change one way or another? Slightly up ourselves, as you like to say over there. The earth has won for billions of year, one way or another. Why would it be any different now? And what in god’s name do taxes or offsets have to do with actually “solving the problem”, should it actually exist?

        • GreenAlba March 2, 2021 at 6:50 am #

          Mr Mango

          The way to find out if a denier/sceptic is interested in facts or beholden to a ‘belief’ is to ask them what would convince them of the validity of the conclusions arrived at by the world’s climate scientists. If they are a sceptic (which is the job description of a scientist), they will be able to tell you what would convince them. If there is nothing that would convince them, then we are in the realm of Bacon’s ‘people prefer to believe what they would prefer to be true’. Julius Caesar also said it in Latin. 🙂 Homines libenter quod volunt credunt. So it’s been noticed before.

          The global annual temperature has increased at an average rate of 0.07°C (0.13°F) per decade since 1880 and over twice that rate (+0.18°C / +0.32°F) since 1981. It’s speeding up. So while I could have said hundreds or thousands, because I didn’t actually ask a mathematician, we haven’t yet approached the end of the anthropocene – the name given to the geological epoch where conditions are driven by the existence of humans.

          We don’t know how much warming there’s going to be overall. Even if we stop burning fossil fuels, we (well, they) aren’t going to stop chopping down the Amazon rainforest. A tipping point will be reached where it turns into savannah. Or the Indonesian rainforest. Or the boreal forests. If there’s nothing else to burn, we’ll burn the last of the trees.

          And in terms of the increase in the rate of warming, there are other positive feedback loops like the loss of the albedo effect at the poles, and the liberation of methane (26 times more powerful than CO2 as a greenhouse gas, although it doesn’t stay in the atmosphere for so long) from melting permafrost or from clathrates at the bottom of the ocean. You’re even helping it along with those abandoned fracking mines someone posted a link about a day or so ago. Thousands of them just in the US, spewing methane and nobody doing anything about it.

          I’m aware the climate stuff ‘doesn’t sit well with you’. Nothing anyone can do about that.

          I didn’t plan to try to convince brh either. I just thought, that even though we’re not going to deal with this issue, we might as well be accurate about what we’re going to fail to achieve. Our great grandchildren might be interested. Or not.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder March 2, 2021 at 8:53 am #

            Alba, I should clarify. I don’t need convincing that the climate changes, or that we may contribute to it one way or another.

            My main issue with “climate stuff” is trusting that our elected talking heads have any actual means or intention to do anything about it (assuming it were possible)…so far as I can tell, taxing the ever-loving crap out of the entire world to start “saving the world from climate change” is not an on-the-level endeavor. No one has been able to adequately explain to me where on God’s green earth that money does/would/should go that would actually do something to “solve the problem.”

            Enough government money already is stolen or disappeared into the ether of accounting confusion…and so when they then come for more and can’t even tell me what for or why…just “climate crisis”, that’s where it comes off to me as see-through line of bull.

            And since the scientists laying out the data to these leaders are literally sitting on government panels that seem to require a consensus to join (or be invited), I have difficulty trusting their “sceptic” qualities that, as you mentioned, would normally be required of a scientist. Not to mention the fact that some of them were caught years ago cooking the numbers in their research to support the conclusion they wanted to come to. Rather unscientific, if you ask me.

            So it’s not the issue I’m concerned about believing…it’s the people pushing it that make me tend to disbelieve.

        • GreenAlba March 2, 2021 at 6:27 am #

          It’s generally taken to mean 1880-1900, EF. The 1800s are also, not at all coincidentally, when population growth started to get serious, after centuries of being unimpressive.

          I’ve answered the point about previous eons before and its relevance (or lack of) to our current situation. Your argument is about as useful as a cleric in a mediaeval plague saying ‘what do you mean, people are dying at a terrible rate? – people have always died’. And indeed they have. It’s just that back then they were dying of that. And in mind-boggling numbers.

          I’m not getting into it again. The fact that no-one reads, in good faith, any of the links I’ve posted kind of proves I’d be daft to waste any more time on it.

            Alba,
            Of course. However, if they were to investigate centuries earlier, the results might negatively impact their current narrative.

            If you can denigrate my position by using medieval accounts about plague, but suggest other data in the distant past might be less accurate, incomplete, or otherwise not probative…well, we have a position to argue.

            It is not lack of reading comprehension that I suffer, but rather a well deserved attack of critical thought and concomitant disbelief in their paradigm.

            I apologize for beating the carcass of the stinking, rotting ruminant….

          • GreenAlba March 2, 2021 at 6:35 pm #

            I didn’t say the climate records started in 1880, EF. Merely that the aim is (or rather was, because it’s not going to happen) to keep the average global temperature at no more than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. It’s the absolute average temperature that matters, along with the absolute concentration of CO2.

            There’s nothing stopping you studying previous centuries if you think you will find something helpful.

      I don’t understand what’s wrong with men having rights.

      I am a woman, a bit of a tomboy. But I’m not a man. My man is very different from me, much more powerful physically, and different in the way he thinks. Why would anyone suggest that a man shouldn’t have rights? He’s a human being, just like me in that respect.

      Testosterone is a shockingly powerful substance. Believe it or not, testosterone played a large role in the development and industrialization of every nation. I’m glad that men exist, and I wish they were not berated for being men.

    There isn’t a chance in hell that all Americans will get herded into a corral of cashless, digital currency that amounts to financial castration. Too many of us value the liberty of not having our every money transaction tracked by some Big Brother.

    I hope you are right, Jim.

    Sadly, I think at this point it is safe to say that the governors do not feel they need the consent of the governed. They now steal elections in plain sight; are content to fund themselves via Mr. Ping; and judging by what they have set up in DC right now, I would say that when push comes to shove, the Purple Revolutionists are going to move straight into police state mode.

    Fascism has arrived again, and on a quite grand scale.

    We are all Anasazi now.

    Traditional research points to drought.
    However, contemporary investigation of the last decade or so points to more:

    -extremist religion and politics
    -deep social/resource stratification between rich and poor.

    Failure to adjust to new realities, namely from abundance to scarcity.

    The best part of the speech was when Trump called out the Supreme Court as gutless cowards. The simple truth.

    The rest was a disappointment. No new Party. Just more of the same thing that lead to defeat. He’s going to run again? With Dominion in place and the mail in voting? Why bother?

    • Night Owl March 1, 2021 at 2:47 pm #

      Indeed. Trump’s biggest weakness is attempting to use normal channels to get a desired out come. Same as when he left office or when he tried to get ahead of the Covid Hoax by claming he was going to get vaccines done in record time — the latter being not only dangerous, but also pointless for a virus so benign to most of the population.

      I suppose the straighter than straight approach can be good, for example, as Mueller and Weissman couldn’t pin anything on him, but when you are playing against people who cheat as a way of life, you are going to hit a wall at a certain point.

      • Blackbird March 1, 2021 at 3:07 pm #

        Trump’s gonna run again? Yay! Fool me once, fool me forever!

        Maybe we should stop focusing on the top of the ticket and focus on the bottom, where real change just might accidentally take place.

        • Night Owl March 1, 2021 at 5:49 pm #

          I could imagine him doing it, but as Yohannon said earlier, what is the point? I suspect the election was rigged in 2016 in addition to 2020. They just weren’t prepared for the groundswell of support Trump received.

          All the propaganda about Cankles having a 98% chance of winning. Getting the questions to the debate before hand, the handsignals to the debate moderator, having the McMedia go full anti-Trump.The fun began when they abruptly announced that the fireworks were cancelled. They thought they had it.

          In 2020, they went all in — just as Joe Joe said on TV: “We have put together the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in history.”

          As I mentioned earlier, Trump’s greatest fraud is trying to be too clean.

          • Night Owl March 1, 2021 at 5:51 pm #

      “The rest was a disappointment. No new Party.”

      I expect his advisors (such as they are) persuaded him that splitting the conservative vote would hand elections to the Democrats for a generation.

      And I don’t think the Democrats will be upset that Trump is “hinting” at running again in 2024 … a divided Republican Party will make it very hard to win over the voters.

      BTW, no state that expanded to universal mail-in voting (because of the pandemic) flipped from Republican 2016 to Democrat 2020 … none.

    My question is, does anyone in any fora outside the WEF’s conclaves actually support the idea of a “Great Reset”. I nothing but general avoidance of the entire topic in the ‘serious media’. The only mention it may get is in relation to a denunciation of White Supremacist Conspiracism. Or somethng similarly incendiary.
    I’ve yet to see the Youtube presentation where Bono and Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates pitch their idea. It’s just some blather they built a web site around which presents a world only Ayn Rand, Bertrand Russel and BF Skinner could conceivably see as in any way positive.

    “Pundits and observers-of-the-scene have warned us that all this artificially-generated turmoil over the sex-of-things is but one part of the prelude to a ‘Great Reset’…”

    Great Reset? More like The Great Regret™. The Great Upset. The Great Lousy Bet.

    “… as we enter the 2021 springtime, with the banking system coming apart and markets wobbling, and more Americans evicted from both their living quarters and the middle-class, and conflicts between the state and federal governments, and new bouts of street-fighting, looting, and murder in the cities, it won’t be so amusing anymore.”

    Let’ see. 2021 “Springtime”. The foreclosure and evictions moratorium is coming to an end. Millions more people about to become homeless – literally. So-called Money is being faked into existence at a rate never seen before in all of human history. Jobs are permanently disappearing and never to return, creating millions upon millions of people who will never again work at anything useful. A generation of children learning to doubt their sexuality, doubt their parents, doubt anyone and anything outside of their tiny untriggered Overton Window, doubt God, doubt everything including potatoes. What’s next? NOT being racist is racist? I’m so Woke I’m completely asleep?

    Springtime is traditionally seen as a time of rebirth and renewal. But that’s back when our shared reality operated on something akin to sensibility and rationality. This year is now the second iteration of a Springtime which seems more like a continuing funeral procession and the ongoing darkness of the dead of Winter. How does that Time thing go? Spring forward, Fall back? But now it’s Every Season… back…back…back!

    They say it’s always darkest before the dawn. But the word “dark” has racial overtones and the word Dawn has been associated with females so I guess we have to throw out that old saying, too. Not much going to be left once everything is cancelled. And Cancelling itself gets cancelled, too.

  40. Rulo Deschamps March 1, 2021 at 7:38 pm #

    I was backpacking in Mexico when the Zapatista insurrection happened. I had my then-girlfriend with me, we were both in our early 20’s, there for the archeological sites, the ‘mota’, the mushrooms, the nude beaches, and happened to be in Chiapas when Subcomandante Marcos issued his challenge to the Mexican gov’t. Soon, the roads were full of ‘retenes’, soldiers checking papers and luggage. They didn’t dig us at those checkpoints, thought we were revolutionaries like our famous countryman, Che. Both white, and my girl very blond, the soldiers would ask us questions, then ponder how come we spoke such good Spanish.”We’re from Argentina”, we’d answer, then they’d ponder some more and ask again, “so where did you learn Spanish?”, thinking we were European or Gringo revolutionaries trained by I dunno, Russia.

    After a checkpoint too many, we retreated to Guadalajara in Central Mexico, where no revolution was taking place. The capital of Jalisco, it is famous for Tequila, Mariachis, and very macho men in big hats. There, we made friends with a crazy gay man, some kind of fashion designer living in a derelict mansion along Vallarta Ave, the poshest part of town. Turns out he was squatting there, hadn’t paid rent for years, and the cops ended raiding up the place towards the end of our visit. But during those weeks, he took us to every gay bar and disco in town and showed us the underbelly of that macho place.

    The scene was brilliant and a lot of fun. There was a real community there that you’d never guess existed. Men in drag put who knows how many hours preparing their Cher and Gloria Trevi impersonations, they came onstage and did their lip syncing, and the next day they’d be back to their “real” lives as clerks, taco vendors or whatever. I really enjoyed the experience, although of course the men kept hitting on me, and the women on my girlfriend. A polite “no” was enough generally, and we got to see a side of Mexico that back then was very hush hush.

    I have no problem with gay people. We all have someone in our family who has that orientation, and what are we supposed to do, shun a brother, a cousin, because of his sexual preference? Moreover, I accept that they cannot live in the dark anymore, that they are proud of what they are and so on. Marriage and adoptions seem a bit too much to me, but I’m open minded and tolerant. Just another tribe in this fast-Balkanizing world of tribes.

    Mr Kunstler is right to pinpoint the more grotesque theater of excess: the “human right” of 13 year olds to “transition” into something they’re not, the dozens or hundreds of genders when in truth there’s only 2, albeit with a certain percentage of each that leans towards same-sex attraction, the frantic virtue signaling and propaganda, the canceling and shaming of anyone wondering, why all of a sudden is the minuscule minority of mentally ill people willing to get surgery to become something they’re not is so important? Don’t we have bigger problems? Barbarians are at the gates, the currency is debased, famine looms, and us Romans are obsessed with sexual deviancy. Fat, stupid and depraved Romans, we are.

    That said, gay men (not women), I learned in Guadalajara and confirmed many times since, bring a spark to any party. They truly dance like nobody’s watching, are outrageous, colorful and funny, and in fact I have this idea called 1-800-RENTAGAY that could make me rich so I don’t have to till rows of bok choi until I die: Gay parties are fun. Stuffy parties of the rich are boring. The wives of the doctors and lawyers want a fun party, but their men are incapable of being anything other than stuffed suits. Hostess calls the toll free number, a number of flamboyant queens show up, take the dancefloor, do their thing, the wives love it, and the stockbrokers don’t mind, because one, they don’t have to dance and pretend they’re having fun, and two, the gays are not a threat, so they can retire to bed early and let the wives have their fun into the wee hours.

    I share the idea freely, in hopes maybe a younger, gay reader here with good marketing skills makes a killing and gets the franchise going. Hell, there’s so many insane ideas out there, this one could work.

    • Soul Forensics March 1, 2021 at 9:17 pm #

      Entertaining recount, Rulo.

      Have you read Paul Theroux’s latest travel excursion, On the Plain of Snakes: A Mexican Journey?

      I forget this one community he toured on his long and winding sojourn, but it was truly a backwater, hardscrabble place, even by Mexico’s penurious standards. Anyway, the town had a secret subculture of transvestites that gathered every year, along with others so inclined, from rocky paths in a hundred mile radius, for a transvestite festival. Theroux was amazed that the predominant macho ethos didn’t fall on them like a ton of bricks, but apparently most of the violence and harassment in that shithole of a country only happens to those with any money. The ultra-poor are left to moulder and die quietly in their own misfortune.

      As an aside, and keeping with our host’s theme for the day, the word “transvestite”, though it only made its appearance in the early 1900s, nevertheless predated “transsexual”, “transgender”, “transphilic”, and the like. And the trans activists hate transvestites since they’re seen as just another “straight” enemy.

      As a further aside, there’s a fascinating essay by Christopher Lord, I believe, in which he explains the linguistic and latterly shenanigans these Wokesters get up to, in this case by co-opting two perfectly good words, “trans” and “gender”, and making them apply to a self-referential political power term to, first, wrench those meanings into new suggestions, and second, to beat everyone else over the head with attached “value”.

      • Rulo Deschamps March 2, 2021 at 5:22 am #

        Soul, yes, I have. That description of the very poor drag queens village was a jewel, the best part of the book. Theroux is very good.

        Transvestite, in its Spanish iteration, “travesti”, is, or was, the preferred term to refer to these people where I grew up. The term is closely associated with prostitution. Because that is the only avenue left open to scrabble some $ for these poor devils.

        They used to congregate in certain corners and ply their trade in Buenos Aires, and you’d be surprised how many “straight” men had escapades with them. While denying any gay tendencies, of course. “It’s just a BJ”.

        Very macho cultures have strong homosexual currents running underneath.

      Always looked forward to seeing him on ‘Brideshead Revisited’. Gays can be fun.

      I wonder what the purpose really is behind the outrageous lengths the Left is going to on sexual identity. Obviously it’s a poke in the eye to the straight laced conservative Right, particularly the macho, ‘toxic’ male.

      Is there really that much merit in being this all accepting? Is there some strange idea that the acceptance of just about any sexual extreme will make people more tolerant and then perhaps more pliable?

      It’s getting to be like hard core porn, different part of the spectrum. Can it win them more votes? If it does, God help us, but it just may.

      Society decays, but won’t the Left, in time, decay along with it?

      Yeah well, that’s the early phase. Once they have people accepting them, they begin to create more of themselves exponentially. Tim Cook calls it “the Gift”. Then they aren’t so polite about taking no for an answer. Then it becomes like Sodom and Gomorrah: “Bring out the strangers that we may know them”.

            If you could name one time that Israel shot rockets first, or invaded first or would not negotiate first, or try to trade land for piece first. You cannot because it has not happened. The Muslim scum that surround Israel have been trying to literally shoot down Israel since 1948. Three major wars initiated by the Muslims, an Israeli invasion of Lebanon to stop rockets from being fired into Israel, Scud missiles shot into Israel by Hussein during Desert Storm. That one cracked me up, the US invading Iraq to get Hussein out of Kuwait and they send missiles against Israel, typical stupidity. Many attacks against the Gaza to stop Muslim rocket attacks. Camp David, the Suez give away to Egypt and other peace “deals” that always blow up because some Muslim sect starts something. Israel finally gives up talking and starts developing land on the West Bank, saying once and for all, Jerusalem and the West Bank, and the Golan Heights are Israeli territory.

            You are very biased and obviously uninformed about your history. Also, the Israelis do not need the West to protect them, they have always kicked ass all by themselves. As you will see if Iran starts getting stupid. How do you keep Iran from developing Nukes? By bombing the hell out of their nuclear facilities, or scrambling their crypto support. Israel will protect Israel in spite of your Leftist BS.

We did the same to the American Indians. Of course they want it back. Bearing the hatred of the conquered is the first duty of Conqueror.

            The treatment of the Palestinians in the process of building up and propping up the Jewish State has been one of the worst international outrages of the last 70 years.

          A schmuck like George W. Bush? He with the Irving Kristol crew, Perle, Zakheinm (let’s not forget his involvement pre-G.W.), Scooter Libby (now here’s a schmuck that took the heat for a schmuck) and their Wolfowitz doctrine sending Americans to die in Iraq and Afghanistan?

          How about a schmuck like yellow-cake Powell?

          How about a schmuck like John Bolton? A puppet of Addelson, (who is finally off on a long dirt nap) who tried in vain to get Trump to commit more American lives for Israel’s long term project?

          How about a schmuck like name-your-mega-evangelical-church-leader (and who JohnAZ apparently listen to) who takes countless donations to convince their sheep that their support of Israel will bring jebus back for another vacation?

          Bill, as a willful schmuck, you ever wonder why Bill, Kristol, that is, had such animosity towards Trump?

    The people who are advocating for the Great Reset are interestingly enough also at the forefront of the whole push to incorporate AI as a tool and medium through which to monitor and control everyone and everything. Maybe you will recall even just a few years ago that the Elites were super worried that algorithms might be racist, sexist, etc. No problem!! AI doesn’t have to be stupid like people it can simply be programmed to factor equity and fairness in to every single judgement and decision ever and forever. So the stage is definitely being set for the supposed morally superior AI gods to seemingly take over the world for the manifest destiny of superinclusion and megadiversity. It would truly be a major buzzkill for their party if someone pulled the plugs and flipped the power switch off.

    Meanwhile, Americans seem to be anticipating some kind of gun control measures directed at AK/AR style rifles; consequently, lever guns are flying off the shelves, Henrys, Marlins, Winchester clones made in Japan and Italy, used 1894s and 336s, try to find one. Now here is a case of Americans making do in the face of adversity, reverting to an earlier technology, in this case a technology that dates from the mid 19th century. A large segment of our citizens remain resourceful and independent, determined to survive regardless of what DC lizards have to say about it.

      This is pretty obvious.

      In Europe, they have already mocked up a vaccine card and health passport, and there is a large group of lobbyists putting heavy pressure on EU leaders to not only adopt it, but to make it mandatory.

        “This is the big move many have been anticipating. If it goes through, we will be entering an extremely dark period that will likely not be turned around without bloodshed.”

        I’m not sure what all the pearl-clutching is for.

        Mandatory inoculations for a range of diseases in order to be able to travel have been fairly standard for a century. Given the high potential for asymptomatic transmission of Covid-19, then vaccination certification would seem a sensible public-health measure.

        I don’t think vaccination should be mandatory across the board, but it should be for certain jobs, and especially for travel.

        If the virus can be transmitted silently by those who are vaccinated … that’s another issue …

    • JohnAZ March 2, 2021 at 1:07 pm #

      Big claims of increased mortality but absolutely no data to support them. Why does the test data during the vaccine development show 100% efficacy rat of keeping people alive and out of the hospital. If there was a big mortality rate with the tens of millions here, we would be hearing about it.

      My number one complaint is the maintenance of the CDC and Fauci of the conservative mitigation requirements when all around them herd immunity is driving down the new cases and death rates, in spite of the new variants. The vaccines have not been given widely enough to cause the decline. So why can’t the CDC, government tell us where the hidden carriers are that have driven us to herd immunity.

      Hint: look to the schools, opening schools in the fall triggered the Great Surge. No more excuses, Biden, get the teachers and staffs immunized, continue getting the adults immunized, and get the kids back into school.

      BTW, it was accepted that the flu was transmitted through schools and kids bringing it home for centuries, why is Covid any different?

      Y et al have been right about the inevitability of the spread of the crud. The future will be boosters, maybe yearly, to recharge immune systems. In the meantime, the over politicking of the Covid has destroyed the integrity of this government and the country.

      We still need a virus killer.

        Hahahahaa! “If there was a big mortality rate with the tens of millions here, we would be hearing about it.”

        Really?

        The media reports lies and propaganda. Check VAERS. You will not hear a peep about the deaths that are occurring or people extremely sick from the vaxx.

        I’ve read plenty of accounts of people dropping dead within hours of getting it. Just today my friend posted that her 60 year old friend got vaxxed and now he’s deaf.

        when the death reports start – they will say the people died from COVID19. That may actually be the truth – finally.

        • JohnAZ March 2, 2021 at 6:43 pm #

          Okay, here is the data base, not a bunch of hearsay.

          The info is from Reuter’s fact check on the Pfizer data base on the 44000 person test run.

          6 dead. .01%, wow? Except four were in the placebo group, normal saline. So the real mortality rate was .004%, and the deaths were not totally tied to the vaccine.

          Four cases of Bell’s Palsy, unknown origin, not totally acknowledged as a result of the vaccine.

          Allergic reactions were significant, hence everyone getting the shot having to wait for fifteen minutes for reactions. People with known allergies do not get the vaccine.

          Reuters found the data to be accurate but gave it a partly correct rating due to the fact that the allergies were an issue.

          • JohnAZ March 2, 2021 at 6:45 pm #

            Much better than getting the crud. And the side effects of the second shot mostly are confined to a couple of days, much better than getting the crud.

            This is going to be a flu shot in the future. Much better than getting the flu.

            I checked out the vaxxtracker input you suggested and then put the filters on for Pfizer and Covid immunizations. What I saw was 5 deaths out of 23.5 million injections as of 1/27. That is .00004%.

            The other side effects were just as small percentages. If you compare Covid to other injections, by applying filters, you get worse numbers than Covid.

            Getting Covid gives you a .01 to .1% mortality rate. Risk to return says, get the shot.

      You don’t think the machines had anything to do with it? Obummer had substantially less votes in 2012 compared to 2008 but sailed through anyhoo. Not that Mittens was much of a choice. He has a big black eye right now kinda like Mitchie had a while back.? But strange that the inverse occurred in 2020 with Trump obtaining substantially more votes compared to 2016 and losing anyway. Yes. Their whole system is a sham and anyone who can actually open their eyes can see it. But lots of good sheep just like to sleep.

        These are not sheep that are stealing elections, they are wolves. Deadly carnivores that spend 24/7 finding ways to destroy the opposition. Until Trump et al start acting like wolves, they will never get back into power.

        Just a start, buying a national newspaper like the Times, firing the entire staff and building a paper that tells the truth.

        Then, support Newsmax and OAN getting into cable networks. If Fox continues its re emergence in conservativism, support it. Otherwise cast it aside.

        Hire computer geeks and create a new Twitter type network to counter the Liberal censorship that all of social media is now. Or buy one that exists, fire the staff and hire conservatives.

        This is the stuff the future depends on. Anything less is a waste of time and money.

          Does anyone else see this as very insulting to American voters?

          If the Republicans (either with Trump or not) wish to return to power, they need to quit their internal brawling, stop racing down every nutfudge rabbit-hole, quit having fruitloop candidates, and actually have a policy platform that makes sense to a goodly number of voters.

            You make me laugh, insulting to American voters.

            I will tell you what is insulting to the American voter, taking away his vote by cheating on one election, sorry you cannot flush away those thousands of affidavits that say your side cheated, and then trying to modify the Constitution and bring in new states to make the Uniparty a reality.

            Your side is the enemy of the American voter.

            Your description of what the GOP should do will turn what is left of the party into a bunch of RINO traitors. It would be great, for the Uniparty to watch the GOP vote go for the Uniparty.

            FYI, I was not satisfied with Trump’s speech to CPAC, not nearly tough enough. He still thinks he can deal with the antiAmerican aholes. That mistake cost him in 2020.

    1984, indeed.

    Concern about encrypted communication in the US. “We can’t tell what people are planning with encrypted comms..”

    Concern from the dems about white people becoming radicalized online.

    FBI doesn’t have the “luxury of time” to figure out statements of angry or violent statements with physical violence.

    Axios

    Bethany Christian Services, one of the U.S.’s largest adoption and foster agencies, said Monday it will begin offering services to LGBTQ parents nationwide, effective immediately, the New York Times reports.

    Why it matters: It’s a major shift for the 77-year-old evangelical organization which has traditionally referred LGBTQ parents to other agencies. The change comes as cities and states increasingly require agencies to work with LGBTQ parents at the risk of losing government contracts.

    What they’re saying: “We will now offer services with the love and compassion of Jesus to the many types of families who exist in our world today,” Chris Palusky, the organization’s president and chief executive wrote in an email per NYT. “We’re taking an ‘all hands on deck’ approach where all are welcome.”

    Yogho: They didn’t hold the line. As Anglin says, if you let women not get married until 30, and expect them to be virgins, you’re wishin’ and hopin’ and ignoring human nature and doctrine. After that’s it’s just a short skip and a jump to gay marriage and adoption. You can’t change or reject one fundamental thing without changing or rejecting other fundamental things.

    Loved this essay! The first two paragraphs had me guffawing.

    What a great portrait of what the US has become – a freakin’ clown show, where the biggest concern while things implode is someone’s preferred pronouns.

    No concern for eldercide, genocide, openly practiced eugenics, an imploding economy, the destruction of schools, infrastructure, healthcare, courts… just so mind-blowing.

    I like how JHK connected the Trans Agenda craziness with transhumanism. This is its purpose. Big Pharma (WHO) runs the show. They want people dependent on alliopathic ‘medicine’, hormones, procedures, etc. And that’s also what the trans agenda is all about. Patients for life.

    Except the ones de-transitioning now are growing in numbers, and none of them are in great shape. Child sized genitals on adults. Facial hair that’s irreversible. Early arthritis, lameness, sterility, and of course mental issues. But all hail diversity!

    This woman is a whistleblower that was a WHO scientist. She exposes just how this global scam works, and how Bill Gates has achieved complete immunity from prosecution for his genocidal acts.

    • Soul Forensics March 2, 2021 at 2:57 pm #

      Well, librarians, after all, are “guardians” of books. Easy to abuse that privilege and duty. It’s the written-word artists and publishing house workers gleefully promoting widespread bans that amaze, then sadden me. They either don’t know history, or, more often, just don’t care, as long as their side is the “winning” one.

      I’m a published poet, and know many people in the industry here in Canada. The level of cancellation is not always what outsiders may think of. Most banning is not done after the fact, at least not now, but is done at the conception stage by the self, because White Males with any backbone and individuality realize that (for instance) to plan, write, edit, sell, distribute, and continuously market your finished novel takes a huge amount of non-remunerative time and effort.

      These days, you’re not even going to attempt the process when some 21 year-old female idiot proofreader cohort, who knowing nothing of history, artistic context, irony, ambiguity, purpose behind the particular narrative voice, etc etc, refuse to work on it because, on page 274, a male character mocks a female one. (There are an infinite number of other Woke combos I’m sure most here can imagine.)

      I’ve given up the sublime Art, at least for trade publications. I’ll continue to compose, and converse with my small circle of like-minded Artist friends and acquaintances, conjuring alternate routes of artistic communication.

      Idiocy, cowardice, and above all, envy.

      Currently, they’re winning. But — great news — these cadavers, these parasites, these pipsqueaks, these timorous clowns, in all ages have their day and then are heard no more. Worth and merit always rises to the top.

      • MaryV March 2, 2021 at 6:11 pm #

      • Soul Forensics March 2, 2021 at 3:23 pm #

        Yes, and in addition to changing meanings of existing words from top-down, they’re also, every year, introducing new, bogus Woke words to the lexicon.

        Word usage is always organic, grassroots. That’s why the Woke agenda always tries to get their terms forcibly established through previously respected, and newly aligned, academic institutions. No one outside of their bubble(s) actually uses their words seriously. Even the august Oxford English Dictionary has fallen.

    ‘Party Like It’s 1984’.

    In ‘1984’, the State certainly wanted regulation and control, as it also does now, but Big Brother in Oceania repressed sex and saw it as a duty owed to itself.

    Currently, the Left is controlling the dialogue on sexual orientation and expanding its categories but, contrary to 1984, it is not repressing sex but rather expanding its horizons so to speak, enabling more to feel comfortable in their own sexual skin and to enjoy any kind of wild, freewheeling sex they desire.

    The Left’s position on abortion allows women more sexual freedom, and in no way have binary sexual relations been repressed. If anything, they may have been neglected by the weird focus on gender expansion, but they haven’t been repressed. Anything goes.

    You may view all of this as a different type of control if you want, but to me it’s more freedom of expression, like it or not, than 1984’s repression. Party yes, but like 1984, please!

Distraction, via pleasure and complacency. Until when all hell breaks loose, the masses will be so enervated, the outcome (to keep with the fictional theme) will transition to Soylent Green.

      It seemed to me like Oceania was actually very old – fashioned , even archaic.

      In the old days , generally , the states control – freak tendencies were aimed almost entirely at the ruling class itself.

      If you read so much about the tyrannies of a Nero or an Ivan the Terrible , it is perhaps because their atrocities were so often aimed at the very class that wrote the history books.

      The general run of humanity was largely ignored and neglected ,

      Unless of course the serf in question robbed a bank , killed somebody ( and usually then killed a noble ) , raped somebody ( again usually a noble . ) or spit on a rich fellow.

      And so it was in Oceania.

      Thought crime applied to party members. Big Brother really didn’t seem to care much at all what the presumably stupid Proles thought , or didn’t think.

      Nine – tenths of the surveillance was directed at party members.

      The prison cells and torture chambers of the Ministry of Love were full of party members , not Proles.

      Lastly , the sexual repression was directed at party members.

      Where the Proles were concerned , an entire section of the Ministry of Truth was devoted to churning out very cheap pornography for the Proles.

      If I recall correctly , Julia worked in that section of Minitrue.

          ” A tax on wealth, the Communist’s dream. ”

          I object to the income tax , not because I object to tax , but because I object to the invasion of privacy implicit in the income tax.

          — Which notion I learned from people who objected to it for the same reason when it was made law in 1913.

          You could call them and me bad old fossilized fuedalists or some such.

          But Communist ?

          Near as I can tell , your average right – winger loves the invasion of privacy idea every bit as much as any Leftist.

            “I object to the income tax , not because I object to tax , but because I object to the invasion of privacy implicit in the income tax.”

            There are respectable economic arguments for the elimination of most income tax, and taxing assets and capital gains more highly, for the same tax take.

            But there are just as many ways for smart rich people to avoid such taxes as there are under the taxable income laws.

            But more importantly, the powerful ruling elites have been pushing taxes “down” on to the working and middle classes for centuries, so they aren’t going to readily allow a reversal of that trend.

      The very point of short, sharp lockdowns after a single untracked case is in fact the best strategy … one case does not then become 2,4,16,32,64, etc. The record in New Zealand over the last year obviously demonstrates that. I concede that an isolated island nation does have other natural advantages.

      But yes – plenty of wealthy Americans have a bail-out estate down in Aotearoa.

    Snagglepuss finally received a long ago ordered copy of “Unmasked, Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy” by Andy Ngo. . I ordered it from Amazon, and the cover inside says it was published by Hachette Book Group, 1290 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY.

    But this copy came from the United Kingdom. All the way from The Book Depository Limited, 1 Principal Place, Worship Street, London, United Kingdom.

    Isn’t that something? American author, American publisher, but it had to come all the way from overseas. Hmmmmm.

    It reminds me of when I wanted to obtain a copy of Oliver Stone’s Documentary on Fidel Castro “Comandante” a number of years ago.

    Not possible. Finally picked up a copy on my way back through London after visiting Malta. Got home and it wouldn’t play on my DVD player because it wasn’t designed for the north american system. I eventually got it all sorted out, of course.

    It seems to me that it is not only good old fashioned honest journalism and public reporting that has been strangled in its bed.
    There are a lot of other surreptitious and evil things going on.
    But you already knew that, didn’t you?

    Mississippi and Texas open up completely, ditching the mask mandate. The horror. Utter panic from the woke. Maybe I’ll be moving down that way. If Louisiana comes in, a new nation will be born. The mask or outer token of submission is a key element in the new Global regime. If that is ditched, leaving it up to the individual, maybe the vaccine passport will be as well. Those four states are a lot of geography, and represent a lot of money and power. Other might join as well. Contiguity is important at the outset of course.

      • Night Owl March 3, 2021 at 8:56 am #

        The tactics have unquestionably been gamed out, likely with the aid of psychologists.

        Push a little, back off, clamp down twice as hard. Make purposefully nonsensical claims (on mask efficacy), as submission to obvious nonsense (sell also the palette of woke nonsense they also push in tandem) is a form of conditioning.

        • MaryV March 4, 2021 at 12:01 pm #

          It’s actually straight out of the See Eye Aye’s torture manual. A very wise woman named Amazing Polly did a breakdown of the torture tactics they are using, and it’s very measured, exact and has successfully hypnotised, psychologically tortured (in violation of the Nuremberg Principles) the populace, and caused mass hysteria…. this is the same stuff they use in order to get cult members to adhere.

          • benr March 3, 2021 at 2:42 pm #

            The recall petition is to put it on the next ballot.
            As we have seen the powers that be know how to rig elections for the desired outcome.
            Even worse they seem to have all the courts cowed to not even review the evidence.
            Even worse even when the state votes on something it is over turned by the corrupt California courts.
            For example prop 8 to ban gay civil unions(marriage) it passed by a comfortable margin and the courts told the people no.

            I see no reason to bother voting anymore millions of illegal aliens voting, mail in ballots with zero verification this country is dead and in its death throws soon to be another third world shit hole with the haves and everyone being the have nots.

    Ummm , I’m pretty sure that if I told a 2nd Century BC Spartan , or one of your 18th Century AD Founding Fathers , that an income tax was a brazen and radical invasion of privacy , they would have known instantly what I was talking about.

    Today , it rather strikes even well – educated people as some sort of deviant subversive notion.

    Consider that today the defendants in the Scopes Monkey Trial are trotted out as an example of sober rational scientific common sense , and blatantly glossed over the fact that they were pushing 19th Century Eugenics.

    Never mind that within living memory Thalidomide was claimed as good for mothers , Asbestos was a miracle fiber , and dinosaurs were reptiles who died out because the weather turned cool .

    They certainly don’t seem very confident about their product! But of course it’s nice to take over countries in any case. Argentina suffered this kind of thing before. They just started to industrialize and British warships sailed in and demanded that they open their ports to cheap British goods. If you don’t, we’ll blow Buenos Aries to rubble. So they did, and their industrial revolution was still born, unable to compete. Argentina stayed only agricultural for the next hundred years or so.

    Read the link. Similar situation with Brazil. Why on Earth don’t they just tell them to fuck off? What are they going to do? Invade? Try and take them over. That’s what they’re already doing.

    • Night Owl March 3, 2021 at 4:53 am #

      Why don’t they tell them to fuck off? I agree, but I also suspect there are threats behind the scenes. Consider the connections a corporation like Pfizer could potentially have with individuals in the US war machine or power structure in general.

      I doubt finding reasons to, for example, economically sanction Argentina would be all that difficult. Simply invent a threat, wait for the reaction, and then present the pre-planned solution.

    Hearing about Argentina and the British within such a short time frame naturally reminded me of the Falkland Islands. The Islas Malvinas are claimed by both Argentina and the UK and of course the islands have a long history of non-Anglo European settlement. But ultimately the UK has the force behind the claim to keep little settlements like Stanley and Darwin humming along. The South Atlantic islands generally are amazing places that are not as widely known or traveled. Ascension Island and St. Helena also belong to the UK. Both are volcanic islands and are among the most remote places on the planet. And then there is the South Atlantic Anomaly. I might write about that at some point. But I will tell you. The Brits actually created a cloud forest on Ascension Island. They call it Green Mountain. Some people say only the British would have spent the time and effort to terraform the island. I think it looks nice. But I also liked the original Portugese name for the island Ascensão de Jesus better.

    • BackRowHeckler March 3, 2021 at 5:58 am #

      The Pope had divided up the Western World between Spain and Portugal. Then The Netherlands, France and England took note and decided they wanted a share too, and The Great Game took shape.

      What ensued was 250 years of colonization, shifting alliances, pirates, naval combat, lost colonies, and territory in the Anericas changing hands one, two or even three times. I think it was New Providence Island in the Caribbean which at different times was soley occupied by English Puritans, Dutch, French, English Royalists, Spaniards, Portugese, and is now part of Columbia. Jamaica is another island that changed hands a few times.

      • SoftStarLight March 3, 2021 at 10:06 am #

        That is very interesting Brh! Some areas of the mainland US have a similar colonial history in terms of the changing of hands. I had noted above that parts of Louisiana actually belonged to an independent nation for a short while called the West Florida Republic. I think that little country lasted about two months in 1810 lol. But in similarity with parts of the Caribbean the current area of Louisiana was ruled by the French, Spanish, British, and then the Americans with many different invasions and battles here and there. And interestingly enough the Catholic Church in New Orleans was under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Quebec and then the Archdiocese of Havana before having an archdiocese of its own. So there were direct connections with the Caribbean as well.

        What was the trigger was Europe was getting overpopulated again, after the Black Death die off effects declined. The Reformation had sowed discord into Europe, the Pope was fighting to keep his power against secular or Protestant realms. European seafaring technology had advanced rapidly as had their military technology. Their number one weapon was the load of diseases they were immune to, bringing them to the Americas destroyed the indigent population.

        Anyway, the combination of all the above brought a deluge of people leaving the European insanity to new opportunities in the New World. It started for gold and silver but other resources rapidly became the motivation.

        You want to know one thing though? Whenever humans in the past took over an area, they destroyed the current inhabitants. Today, the majority of the indigenous peoples of the Americas are still here.

    • GreenAlba March 3, 2021 at 6:41 am #

      SSL

      Regardless of the various later European settlements on the Falklands, the first undisputed landing on the islands was by a British captain, who claimed them for Britain. I’m no fan of empire, but you live in one too, so you know how it works.

      I was equally no fan of the quite disgusting jingoism of the Sun’s famous ‘Gotcha!’ headline and Margaret Thatcher’s even more disgusting call to Brits to ‘Rejoice!’ at the horrible death of 300 young Argentinian sailors on the Belgrano. BUT, the reason the UK was obliged to do something was that the people who live on the islands are overwhelmingly of British descent and overwhelmingly consider themselves British, which comes with an expectation that they will not be abandoned if their islands are invaded. Those of British descent in Northern Ireland feel somewhat the same, much as both the UK and Ireland might wish for a magic want to rewrite history.

      Hopefully, some time in the future, both locations might revert to a more geographically logical dependency (and very dependent they both are – the argument with NI, although nobody ever puts it in those terms, is about who is going to subsidise it). But it looks as if the demographic evolution which will eventually return NI to Ireland will happen long before any such thing might happen on the Falklands.

      • GreenAlba March 3, 2021 at 6:57 am #

        If it were all about location, France would be entitled to ask for the Channel Islands back – or les Iles Normandes, as they are known outre-manche. But Anglo-French squabbling is about different things these days.

      • SoftStarLight March 3, 2021 at 10:15 am #

        Yes and also in just looking at the map it seems like the Falklands are far enough away from Argentina to be separate from Argentina anyway. Also the islands are sparsely populated and I believe the largest town is Stanley and there may be about 4,000 people living there. So many people would think of that as a small town. The Argentine claim is also perplexing because it isn’t readily apparent exactly what resources Argentina believed they would be retaking. It seems that it was mostly just a historical claim and belief that the islands naturally belonged to the Spanish speaking world. And they probably wanted more land to claim in general. A why not sort of thing.

        • GreenAlba March 3, 2021 at 10:40 am #

          There’s some oil exploration ATM which always adds a bit of spice to the pot! I believe it’s helping the islanders diversify a bit from sheep, for as long as it remains viable.

          However, it was already looking unfeasible to defend the Falklands in perpetuity, given the state of public finances back in the 80s – Thatcher’s government were already in talks with Argentina about transferring sovereignty, but they were getting nowhere. I don’t remember the details and it was a bit hush hush anyway – I’m guessing they would have stalled at British insistence on a decent level of self-determination for the islanders (a variety of Hong Kong scenario), but I don’t know.

          The tangled web woven by colonialism leaves some weird and incongruous situations. If push came to shove the 3300 people, or how every many there currently are, could be accommodated here, but we wouldn’t be able to give them all a sheep farm, and they want to stay where they are, as long as someone else is footing the bill. I believe life there is a bit like Britain in the 1950s.

    So the Climate Czar John Kerry was on CNN talking about ‘The New Hydrogen Economy’, and warned major oil companies they need to get on the ‘right side of history’ and start producing hydrogen. I’m not sure if this is a signal that he has given up on running the country with windmills and solar panels, but all the sudden he is pretty adamant about hydrogen power.

    Does anybody on this board know, can hydrogen replace petroleum, natgas and coal? If so, why haven’t we been using it all along? I know when I was a kid one of the neighbors was an engineer who worked at Hamilton Standard on fuel cell projects for NASA. That was quite a few years ago now.

          Yeah, good article.

          I wonder:

          They mentioned seals. This was one of JHKs objections in TLE, trying to keep cars hydrogen tight, as people do not maintain their cars now correctly. The results of a leak would be catastrophic.

          Expensive and complex.

          Sequestering CO2 below ground, any long term effects from that when millions of cars are using hydrogen?

          How much electricity is needed? Just add it on to the electricity bill.

          Their process oxidizes oil below ground to produce hydrogen gas and CO2. What about leakage to groundwater of the reactants, hydrogen or CO2? Sorta like fracking leakage that has been an issue.

          JHK put out in TLE, why not do electrolysis, electrical conversion of water to Hydrogen and oxygen, as a parasite on nuclear electrical generation. Electricity plus fuel, what a deal!!

          Storage, what to do with inventory. Oil is benign in comparison. Mankind has a nasty habit of finding the one way to screw things up. All the promises of reliability end up with one result, Murphy’s law. The idea of a storage field having a leak plus ignition is really scary. No fires, just a gigantic explosion. Remember the Hindenburg, remember the Challenger?

      A politician is a liar packaged up to make his/her lies with a straight face. I have never seen the falsehoods flow faster than what is coming out of DC since Jan 20. I do not think Biden has made a single true statement yet. His characterizations of the previous administration borders on hilarity at times.

      This AM he is saying Trump did not do the job of getting the vaccine out to the public.

      Hogwash! Trump got the vaccine developed in one fourth the time, set up distribution channels that Biden, after a month of screwing around finally is starting to use to get the vaccines out. He wants the vaccine out to everyone by May 1. Sounds good, but only a month late compared to Trump’s plan.

      How do you tell if a politician is lying,?

      His mouth moves!

      It is so easy to lie and get away with it, when the press does not exist in its role of watchdog.

      Good news. Whitman of Michigan is being investigated for paying off her health leader for covering up her loading nursing homes with Covid patients. Sound familiar? Maybe one by one these really evil Leftist liars with be rooted out and hopefully jailed.

    Fox headline

    Newsom blasts Abbott for opening Texas 100%.

    No kidding!!

    Might have something to do with Florida and New York, with DeSantis and Cuomo.

    Newsom turns around and thirty percent of his productive people are in Texas. In both cases, justice to the two worst blue states.

    Another headline, 108+ immigrants found at the border with Covid. Great! How about the thousands that are cutting holes in the unmonitored wall and just driving their human loads into America. Thirteen illegals died in a crash in Holtville California yesterday, they followed their track back to the hole in the wall. With no surveillance with boots on the ground, the wall obviously is porous. We are loading up this country with a public health crisis, ON PURPOSE!

    The border is about to blow sky high, hope you Leftists enjoy the ride, you deserve the consequences. And yes, this problem belongs to you!

    • SoftStarLight March 3, 2021 at 10:33 am #

      Yeah and I saw today that migrants that have been shipped in to the interior is far flung places are now testing positive for covid. That right there should let everyone know that our overlords never cared about public health whatsoever in the first place with all of these restrictions. They are intentionally allowing disease vectors to mix in to the population indiscriminately. Hey above when I was talking about the sheep I meant the people in general who are not paying attention or just going along to get along. I do realize the people willing to steal the elections are the wolves. It is too bad Trump did not harness his inner wolf to crush the traitors and criminals. Maybe he doesn’t have an inner wolf?

        Over and over, SSL, the Deep State is the number one enemy of this country. The real domestic terrorists are the insidious Democrats and RINOs stealing power from the people for the Deep State and the globalists.

        Of course, the real problem is the stupidity of the American people allowing this to happen right in front of their eyes.

    • stelmosfire March 3, 2021 at 10:36 am #

      Tragic as the loss of life was in the California crash, I would imagine that the rest of the individuals involved probably suffered some very serious injuries which will require very expensive treatment and rehabilitation. Maybe even lifelong care. I’m glad the driver had the platinum insurance policy and we the people will not have to pay for any of it.

    • MrMangoOnMyShoulder March 3, 2021 at 2:33 pm #

      Exactly…isn’t it just predictably hilarious?

      This whole time the (supposed) goal was to bring “the numbers” down and then get back to our lives. (actual goal is probably more along the lines of “kill the middle class, take what they had, keep people perpetually scared, get everyone tracked and forced to get their proveably untested vaccines, divide us down the line and make people avoid each other”).

      Now half the country wants to do masks and distancing forever, cuz politics…and well, flu/cold season is somehow a new phenomenon to us all in the span of one year…wish I could say it was unbelievable, but…ya know.

      We’ve never acted like this as a (modern) human race before, this shows the power of a good plan by those who hold the cards, as well as the power of the media…and the awe both should inspire.

      They’re overplaying their hand, and way too fast, that much is obvious.

      Yet half of the country now wants it to continue ad infinitum under the false idea that we are ever actually “safe” in this world.

      Risk, folks. It’s the number one feature of nature. That people want to be told nothing bad will ever happen to them (and actually believe it?) shows a serious lack of mental development in the current crop of humans residing on earth.

      Good luck out there.

    Trump kicked a hornets nest when he killed the Iranian general and Iran responded by carefully bombing something where no one was killed.
    A tit for tat situation where both sides wanted to save face but appear to have done something.

    Flash forward to now and Biden is bombing Iranian proxy fighters and likely Iranian Kuds advisors as well.
    The situation is now getting out of control and next to no response from our new commander in grief aka cabbage head the braindead and Iran knows it.

      Remember that Dems derive power by dividing people. They are just restarting their strategy in the Middle East, getting them fighting each other.

      Trump was hooking up alliances over there, preserving Israel and trying to secure the oil flow. Biden, in his insane drive to destroy everything Trump, is undoing the peace formation in the ME.

      Will it take another oil shutdown to wake the people up that they really screwed up in November? It may be necessary, but it will hurt millions of people.

        Iraqi Shiite Scholar Asaad Al-Naseri: “Iraq Is Under Iranian Occupation”

        https://youtu.be/O2g9ERX9yDA

        A lot of Shiite talking heads in Iraq are talking about Iraq being under Iranian occupation. Could be a new development in new alliances. The Abraham ME military alliances. No one wants the Ayatollahs, and that includes the Iranians.

        Toppling Saddam was a cardinal move on the chessboard.

    Saw a drive-by video tour of West L.A. yesterday. I was amazed at the empty stores, “for lease” signs, empty office buildings, lots of trash and homeless encampments along the route. The video ended on Santa Monica Blvd in W. Hollywood. This is the area I stay in when I visit LA. I’ve always loved that area, and am heartbroken to see what has befallen it.

    Average-dressed people were ambling down the streets as they walked past the empty storefront blocks as if it was normal. Boutique shops along Melrose Ave. were mostly gone.

    What really surprised me was the nonchalant attitude of the pedestrians. Apparently, they are willing to accept the unacceptable. The dumb public doesn’t seem to realize that losing small businesses is a death blow to their way of life. Congratulations to those forces that have successfully destroyed people’s reasoning powers. After all, expending energy on banning Dr. Seuss is much more important. Boy, are they going to be surprised when their children, who they are trying to protect, rise up from their campfires and kill them.

    Bill, youtuber ‘Jeremiah Babe’ has some pretty good LA street video shot within the past week or so. Block after block of vagrants living in tents or out in the open on sidewalks and in city parks. Not just skid row either; it seems like the entire city is skid row. It goes on for miles and miles, thousands of people. It’s as bad as anything I’ve seen in 3rd world countries. Its seems like it’s a permanent state of affairs. Apparently nothing is being done about it, or can be done about it.

    Minneapolis City Council president is now already blaming the police for whatever violence may happen during the upcoming Chauvin trial. (“We can’t police ourselves out of violence.”, to closely paraphrase)

    I say bring on the National Guard and keep the city standing, as that is literally your fucking job.

    Not to “look good” to the Woke when the smoke clears.

    She’s a piece of work. And oddly enough, decided to not run for another term next year, but instead focus her attentions elsewhere where she may be needed.

    Hmmm…wonder why she’d want to duck out now? Pure mystery, for sure.

        Sure. Plenty of homes (likely to be oddly vacant during that time). And I believe there’s still a Chipotle open on E Lake St somewhere.

        Well, and gas stations aplenty.

        The government center and office buildings/banks downtown are all Gitmo’d up like the US Capitol building though. They’ll be fine.

    I found this,

    Chinese. They’ve over fished the oceans of their territorial waters so they are going around the world making agreements with impoverished nations to fish their waters.

    Shark finning is definitely a Chinese medicine practice.

    Japan may do it too, I’m not aware, but China is the prime offender.

      Not to worry, the Climate Czar, Hydrogen John, will have a little talk with Xi Jingping on the matter.

      But right now the Climate Czar is working to convince Xi to abandon fossil fuels, especially coal, or so he claims. It’s a tough sell; hundreds of millions of Chinese citizens would be plunged into darkness, and freeze to death in the winter. Xi is not enthusiastic, to say the least. In his own mind he’s weighing the 1.5° C temp rise by 2100, against the economic and social collapse of his own country

      Malthus, China has 1.4 billion mouths to feed. Massive factory fishing trawlers are deployed thru out the world’s oceans, scooping up fish large and small. Xi Jingping to Hydrogen John: “What are you going to do about it? We need food.”
