Vassar Bushmills

By God!

I sat up with a start this morning, around 2:04.

It hit me, ※Why are we all pretending this is politics#when it*s revolution?§

Their media, our media, their talk-show people, our talk show people, all have to pretend to be matter-of-fact about a situation that is probably the most significant series of events in American history since the southern states seceded in 1860#

#all because?a solitary?man was elected with a solitary purpose, but which?had to be?postponed until he could complete the new mission his election forced on him, to win a civil war and restore the Union.

Out of the mouths of babes Beto O*Rourke, three term congressman from Texas, near-miss (by some accounts) senator from Texas, and sure fire presidential candidate for 2020, (assuming there will be a contested one) let it slip this week the dirty little secret that every one but the most self-delusional on his side knows to be true:

※The Constitution of the United States?is no longer a fit?foundation for a?modern government. It is no longer relevant.§

For what it*s worth, I first heard this same concept in the classroom in 1968, as a lecture by a political science professor, his argument being that the structure of our society?and economy was too complex for a ham-fisted Congress to manage or, or for the general population to have?anything more than a?ceremonial?say in it.

He was of course echoing the thoughts of Wilsonian Progressivism from around 1910, and?slashed me a letter grade?for disagreeing with him on the final exam.

In other words, all the elements of disavowing the Rights of Man on the one hand, and keeping academic students in line on the other, were fully in place in the academy 50 years ago. Had I wanted to go on to pursue a masters and PhD, he would have insured I couldn*t. I*d been tagged[…]

Progressive unanimity can seem enviable because of the strength it projects, but it can also lead the way to madness and systemic collapse.

If you’re old enough, you can remember back to 1981 when the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Kansas City suffered America’s deadliest, non-terrorist caused structural collapse, which killed 114 people and injured another 216. The disaster occurred when the hotel was holding a tea dance in the lobby and two walkways suspended above the lobby collapsed on?the dancers.

Subsequent investigation showed that the design plan was horribly flawed and would support only 60% of the minimum load requirement under Kansas City building codes. The contractor noted the flaw . . . and proposed an alternative that was even worse because it didn’t correct the original problem but, instead, melded with and augmented it. The problem — as is the case with so many horrific disasters — was failed communications between the parties responsible.

I remember the disaster, not just because it was awful, but because it introduced me to a new concept. Before the investigation revealed the myriad engineering and communication failures, a lot of people speculated that the dancer’s feet, all tripping lightly to the beat, caused the collapse. You see, it’s long been known that, if soldiers march in step across a bridge and trigger the bridge’s natural frequency, the bridge can collapse:

In April 1831, a brigade of soldiers marched in step across England’s Broughton Suspension Bridge. According to accounts of the time, the bridge broke apart beneath the soldiers, throwing dozens of men into the water.

After this happened, the British Army reportedly sent new orders: Soldiers crossing a?long bridge?must “break stride,” or not march in unison, to stop such a situation from occurring again.

Structures like bridges and buildings, although they appear to be solid and immovable, have a natural frequency of vibration within them. A force that’s applied to an object at the same frequency as the object’s natural frequency will amplify the vibration of the object in an occurrence called mechanical resonance.

Sometimes your car shakes hard when you hit a certain speed, and a girl on a swing can go higher with little effort just by swinging her legs. The same principle of mechanical resonance that makes these incidents happen also works when people walk in lockstep across a bridge.

If?soldiers?march in unison across the structure, they apply a force at the frequency of their step.

If their frequency is closely matched to the bridge’s frequency, the soldiers’ rhythmic marching will amplify the vibrational frequency of the bridge. If the mechanical resonance is strong enough, the bridge can vibrate until it collapses from the movement.

So — I’ve now offered you a little physics and a little engineering, but what does this have to do with politics and, more specifically, with Progressives?

As I see it, we conservatives often have cause to complain about our lack of unanimity. While Leftists/Progressives will almost invariably present a united front, getting conservatives to agree on things is like herding cats.

Take, for example, the different approaches to presidents. During Obama’s administration, Democrats/Progressives never wavered in their devotion to him. There was nothing Obama could say or do, no matter how far he strayed from campaign promises, no matter how dishonest, no matter how damaging to his supporters, that would cause the Proggies and their ilk to break ranks. They supported him unreservedly.

Bush never got that kind of support and, when it comes to Donald Trump — O.M.G.! Conservatives are all over the place. The first break in ranks came with the #NeverTrumpers. They have proven themselves to be so hostile to Trump that they willingly abandon core conservative principles, whether because they never held those principles in the first place or because they’re extremely allergy to anything Trump means that they willingly reject everything Trump.

Then there are what I call the Policy Trumpers. These are people like Andrew Klavan and Ben Shapiro. Before I go further, I should say that I like both men a great deal and think they’re two of the smartest, most interesting political and cultural critics around. I listen to and read them regularly.

However, both of these men, as well as those in their camp, while admitting that Trump has been a pleasant surprise to them at a policy level, thereby earning their support, cannot get over their personal distaste for the man. No matter what approving things they write or say about Trump’s practical effect as President, they invariably toss in an obligatory disclaimer about the fact that the don’t like Trump’s style.

I’m a little tired of these constant disclaimers, which are a conservative form of virtue signaling. While the Proggies attack Trump both stylistically and substantively, these Policy Trumpers, while thankfully supporting Trump’s substance, keep providing the Proggies with ammunition by endlessly criticizing Trump’s style. Moreover, the Policy Trumpers seem to be slow to catch on to the fact that part of Trump’s signal policy success is because of his style. It takes a pushy, blustery, deeply secure man, not to mention a powerful counter-puncher (for he never throws the first punch), to achieve his successes in the face of both historic opposition and typical D.C. foot-dragging.

And of course, thankfully there are the people like Don Surber, Dan Bongino, and?me, who have decided that Trump, blustery charm and all, is the last best hope for America. Until he proves himself truly unworthy of it, Trump has my unreserved support. Sure, he’s had some failures (most significantly not firing Comey instantly and prosecuting Hillary instantly, thereby helping to return the U.S. to the rule of law), but for the most part, he’s been extraordinary. Moreover, he’s learned fast from his failures and, as I think is happening now with the temporary halt to the shutdown, set some sweet traps for his political opponents.

To reiterate, then, there’s no such thing as unified conservatives. Dealing with conservatives, whether in Congress; in state houses; or on the internet, on podcasts, talk radio, and on YouTube, is about as easy and successful an endeavor as herding cats. In the face of the unified front the Proggies present conservatives routinely go down in flames, both in Congress and in the voting booth.

BUT (and this is where I was going all along with this essay) sometimes perfect lockstep carries within it the seeds of its own destruction. As with those bridges, should the lockstep vibrate too closely with the natural vibration of a supporting structure, the whole thing collapses.

What I like to think I’m seeing with today’s Democrat Party is that, when intelligence and sanity dictate that they should be breaking strike, Proggies instead pull their formation even more tightly together, increasing the risk of harmonic frequency convergence with the core stability of the American political body.

Specifically, rather than embracing them wholesale and unanimously, Proggies should be breaking stride over the following ideas:

The Border Wall: No border means no nation. If Proggies had even a scintilla of historic knowledge, they would look to the Romans who, as their empire became debauched and decayed, were unable to prevent the barbarians from overrunning them. While the Roman Empire lasted another thousand years in the twisted ways of Byzantium, the core empire, the one that dominated the ancient world, fell with staggering rapidity.

Human biology and gender: Proggies are doubling down with aggressive ferocity when it comes to their decision to reject entirely human biology. That biology, which is completely programmed to advance the survival of the species in the most efficient way possible, is predicated on binary sexuality (i.e., male and female).

Sure, we have anomalies, such as homosexuality, which sees people being decidedly male or female in their sexual identity, but having same sex attraction. These desires, though, do not change basic biology. We also have the minute percentage of people born with genuine chromosomal mix-ups.

But what we mostly have thanks to the Proggie pod mindset is a world in which young people — and I mean really young, as in ages 2, 3, 4, etc. — are told that the contents of their undies bear no relationship to their sex. Instead, the dominant culture, guided by the Proggies, insistently tells them that their sexual identity is a smorgasbord from which they can choose at will, changing their minds from day to day or even minute to minute. Here is just a minute portion of possible modern “gender identities”:

Abimegender每 A gender which is profound, deep, and infinite.

Absorgender每 A gender that changes to conform to the genders of those around you. As you are around more people, even if some leave, they continue to add to the genders you feel. You remain as the genders that you have taken in until you hit a max of some sort. At that point you become like a blank slate, being only one gender (it doesn*t have to be agender or neutral, it can be any gender and the base gender can be different each time).

If you absorb one gender more easily than other genders, you can replace gender in the term with the gender you absorb best. Like absorgirl, absornonbinary, absordemiboy, etc.

Adamasgender-?A gender which refuses to be categorized.

Adeptogender每 When your gender identity was obtained through your realization of your kinself. as in your kin realization spurred your gender realization. (note: the gender and kin type do not necessarily have to correlate with each other)

Androgyne每 Feeling in between, or a combination of, man and woman (or boy and girl).

Anesigender每 Physically feeling like a certain gender but feeling more comfortable identifying as another.

Angeligender每 A gender found only among angels, that is hard to describe to non-angels. For godkin and angelkin only.

Angenital每 ?A desire to be without primary sexual characteristics, without necessarily being genderless.

Anogender每 A gender which fades in and out, but always comes back feeling the same.

Anongender每 A gender that is unknown to both yourself and others.

Antegender每 A protean gender which has the potential to be anything, but is formless and motionless, and, therefore, does not manifest as any particular gender.

Anxiegender每 A gender affected by anxiety.

Anvisgender每 See?apagender.

Apogender每 A subset of agender in which you feel not only genderless, but entirely removed from the concept of gender.

Apollogender每 When you have around 9 (can be anywhere from 6 to 10) different distinct feelings of gender that have combined into one big gender identity.

Aporagender每 A gender separate from man/boy, woman/girl, and anything in between while still having a gendered feeling.

Aptugender每 A gender which feels fitted and secured.

Aquarigender每 A gender which is fluid between infinite feelings. Sometimes, these feelings may be close to an existing term, and sometimes they are indescribable or abstract. Also known as?genderflow.

Archaigender每 A gender that is ancient/old and big, and can either only be described with those words, or is correlated to them.

Arifluid每 See?arigender.

Arigender每 Switching between nonbinary genders while feeling particularly associated with one feeling. Also known as?arifluid.

Arithmagender每 A numerical gender. it can range from any number/s, positive, negative, decimals, fractions, etc.

Argogender每 A subset of genderfluid wherein the changes between one*s separate genders or the parts of one*s gender happen gradually, or a gender that is defined by its slowness.

Astergender每 A gender that feels bright and celestial.

Boggender每 A gender that feels like a bog, swamp, marsh or similar ecosystem. Also known as?swampgender.

Bordergender/Borderfluid每 A fluctuating gender experienced exclusively by people with BPD. A gender identity lacking a firm grasp on one*s identity, while still experiencing gender, to varying degrees, but having trouble pinning it down to just one label or identity. Having the sense of grasping at labels as much as possible to describe a gender, one keeps questioning because one keeps second guessing one*s sense of self and consequently, one*s sense of gender.

Boyflux每 When one feels mostly or all male most of the time but experiences fluctuating intensities of male identity. This can be fluid with any other identity.

Brevigender每 A subset of genderfluid in which you feel your gender is never stable for long periods of time, but is constantly changing.

Burstgender每 See?spikegender.

Cadensgender每 A gender that*s easily influenced by music.

Cadogender每 A subcategory of polygender identities (genderfluid, bigender, trigender, etc.) to have a gender to fall back on, or one that you always go back to.

That’s the A’s, B’s, and two of the C’s. The list goes all the way to “Zodiacgender,” defined as “A catch-all gender term that is used to describe when one*s gender is related to a (or their specific) zodiac sign.” This list?bears no relationship to reality.

As long-time readers know, I believe there’s a possibility that basic transgenderism, in the form of a man who believes he’s a woman or a woman who believes she’s a man, may exist thanks to the prevalence of the Pill. Whether there’s estrogen in the drinking water or it has lingered in a woman’s system after she discontinued the Pill to become pregnant, it’s not unreasonable to think that, even if fetuses have normal chromosomes, they are getting abnormal hormone washes in utero. If this is true, and if we were still a sane society, we’d give these children hormones aligned with their DNA, rather than giving them hormones that cause sterility and cancer and subjecting them to slice and dice surgery.

Again, let me return to my point: Pretending biology doesn’t exist is the path to insanity, and it’s magnified when Proggies, instead of retreating to fact, dig deeper and harder into this world of gender delusion.

Islam. Proggies cultivate Islam. They desperately want Islamism in American politics and that desperation is casino bonusturning into genuine political success. Before I go further, let me say that I know that there are millions of Muslims, both at home and abroad, who are decent people who just want to make a life for themselves and their family. I wish them well.

However, I also know that Islamic doctrine is inherently antisemitic, anti-Christian, indeed, anti-any religion that’s not Islam, although it’s animus to Jews is especially potent. I know too that its core doctrine demands world conquest, the complete subjugation of Muslim women, the sexual enslavement of non-Muslim women, the death of gays, and all sorts of other stuff at complete odds with Western civilization as it existed at least up until a decade or so ago.

Regarding Muslim doctrine, I know as well that, of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims, 10% (or 116 million) will actively fight and die for these sharia principles. (As an aside, think about this: Christian martyrdom requires that you die for your faith, as so many Christians in Africa and the Middle East are doing today, while Muslim martyrdom requires that you kill for your faith.) In addition to these soldiers of Allah, throughout the Muslim world, whether at home or abroad, a plurality of Muslims strongly supports those sharia principles and, while these people will not do the enforcing, they will provide both moral and practical support for those who do.

While individual Muslims can be good people, Islam is not a demographic that any sane, civilized, pluralist, democratic nation should encourage — yet the Proggies do. Their lockstep march into Islam’s embrace is a disaster waiting to happen for Western civilization. We should be challenging Islamic ideas, not embracing them.

Anti-Semitism. Throughout world history, those nations that were nice to the Jews thrived, while those that were not were miserable places that often ended into a welter of blood. This is not because (contrary to Ilhan Omar) Jews cast magical evil spells on this nation. It’s because the same values that led a nation to tolerate Jews also led that same nation to give its citizens more individual liberty than found in surrounding nations. Totalitarians hate Jews, who stand for morality, justice, and the value of the individual. It turns out that what’s good for Jews is good for everyone.

Despite this truism, the Democrat Party, in order to keep Islam within its fold, is marching fast and hard into overt anti-Semitism. This is bad for the Democrat Party for the same reason that, as I pointed out above, anti-Semitism is bad for all societies and groups that it infects. America’s only hope is that the Proggies’ lockstep love for anti-Semitism destroys Proggie politics before it destroys America as a whole.

Climate change. I don’t believe in anthropogenic climate change. I simply believe in climate change, which has happened since earth’s inception. Vast forces in our universe, some of which are manifestly connected to the sun and others of which we don’t understand at all, have seen endless cycles of heating and cooling across the planet. I also believe that we humans, with our capacious intelligence, should be wise stewards of the planet, making it a fruitful and livable place not just for our generation, but for generations to come.

Proggies, however, are hurling themselves off the climate change Armageddon cliff. They live in a constant state of existential panic.?At a political and economic level, this panic is a useful device to control the economy and to redistribute wealth away from America (which they hate), leaving only enough for total government power and an enriched nomenklatura class.

(By the way, have you noticed that, Ocasio-Cortez’s and Warren’s dreams notwithstanding, socialist countries have lots of billionaires? It’s just that these billionaires — from the Maduros, to the Castros, to the Chavezes, to the Kims, to the Arafats, to the Mullahs — don’t create wealth by benefiting human kind; they just steal it from their starving, demoralized, tortured, enslaved people.)

At a psychological level, though, there is nothing good that can be said about having 50% of the population, especially the young people, living in a state of existential panic. That way lies madness — yet nothing deters the Proggies’ unrelievedly unified approach to this imagined apocalypse.

Toxic masculinity. I happen to like men. I like them a lot. I like the way they look. I like the way being with them enhances my own sense of my femininity.? I like the way they complement my femininity by being the yang to my yin. I like their bravery, their loyalty, their goofiness, their pragmatism, their creativity, and their analytical abilities.

I recognize that there is a flip side, in that men can be boorish, violent, stupid, etc. But my life motto is “catch them being good.” Rather than berate men for their testosterone-driven faults as if I and other women were without faults, I want a society in which we recognize men for their best traits and encourage them to cultivate those qualities. A society with healthy men is a healthy society.

Notwithstanding how obvious my point is (that is, I’m not claiming any special insight when I voice it), the Proggies are embracing en masse a vision of men as inherently toxic and desperately in need of destruction at most or subordination at least. If there were any native intelligence or sanity left on the Proggie side of the aisle, at least some Proggies would reject this toxic view of masculinity. But noooooo. Proggies march to the same beat about toxic masculinity, blind to the horrors of a world in which men abandon the effort to embrace their virtues and, instead, cultivate their vices.

Racism. Martin Luther King poignantly dreamed of a world in which people would be judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. Proggies, even while insisting that they, and only they, inherited the mantle from King (who was, incidentally, a Republican who spent almost his entire life at odds with Democrats), have completely inverted his message.

Embracing their antebellum, Confederate, and Jim Crow progenitors, Proggies claim that race is the only measure of a person. If they abandoned this race-defined close march, they might save themselves. As it is, though, they’re resonating with one of the most evil frequencies that humankind can offer, which is to rank people by externalities rather than core values.

I could go on, but I think I’ve hit the big issues. The bridge towards which Proggies are marching is the American nation. If Proggies were smart, they would “break step” to diffuse the vibrations they’re creating. But they’re not smart. Instead, they’re staying synchronized and, indeed, quickening and making ever harder and firmer the sick rhythm to which they march.

Our only hope is that, when their lockstep hits that bridge, they get a good dunking, ending their political power. I worry, though, that their mad, utterly cohesive rush to insanity may doom the grand American experiment and turn America into just another pathetic third world-esque nation. Even as it’s Proggies who are obsessed with dystopianism, it is their unified madness that can led to a dystopian American future.

The government shutdown, anti-Semitism in the Democrat Party, abortion, and a mad, bad media — no matter I busy my day is, I must blog about them.

Did you know that a chicken without a head made it into an early edition of Ripley’s Believe It or Not? It’s true. The story goes back to 1945:

In a task he had done countless times before [i.e., lopping chickens’ heads off], [Farmer] Lloyd was caught completely off guard. Rather than succumbing to the fate of the cooking pot, this rooster without a head continued to ※peck§ the farm grounds for food.

[snip]

And so, farmer Llyod began feeding this rooster who he named Mike. He fed him grain and gave him water through an eyedropper.

Over the next 18 months, Mike grew to an incredible size. He started out at as a solid two-and-a-half-pounds and flourished into a hefty eight-pound rooster.

Poor Mike died when he choked on some food but it is rather inspiring that, even without his head, he kept going and going, kind of like a headless chicken Energizer Bunny.

I don’t know whether people use the expression “running around like a chicken without a head” nowadays, but it’s definitely how I felt today. I’m planning for a trip and there’s so much I need to do before I leave. If I think about everything I need to do, I get a little panicky, but if I just put my head down (and yes, I do still have a head) and do one task after another, I can actually see myself make headway (if you’ll pardon the pun).

Anyway, that’s why I haven’t blogged today before now.

Headless chicken or not, I have been thinking about President Trump’s decision to suspend the government shutdown for three weeks. The usual members of the conservative chattering class (aka NeverTrumpers and their weak sisters) are saying “We told you he’s a poseur,” while the usual members of the hard Left Proggie class are saying, “Pelosi’s the real alpha in America and Trump’s a weak, pathetic moron.” I think they’re both wrong.

Trump doesn’t look like a loser; he looks like a reasonable man trying to strengthen American security without destroying federal workers. Never mind that the Proggies had no tears for the coal miners whose lives they gleefully destroyed nor do they ever have compassion for private sector people whose lives Big Government destroys.

Incidentally, with Buzzfeed and HuffPo laying off pathetically whining Proggies, many conservatives are engaging in pleasurable?schadenfreude by suggesting that these newly unemployed workers learn computer coding. One of the thin-skinned Lefties who got laid off was so upset with my pointing out that she was a bathetic whiner that she blocked me. Woo-hoo!

Optimally, despite Pelosi ignoring the Constitution to say she really doesn’t see why there has to be a State of the Union speech, during the next three weeks Trump will (I hope) stand before the House and make his pitch to the American public. If there’s no deal in three weeks, Trump can then more freely than he would now exercise his emergency powers to build the wall. After all, if Obama could fund the murderous Mullahs, Trump can build a wall. Alternatively, if there is a deal, that’s good too, although I suspect the DACA kids will be here permanently. I hate that fact, but I’d still rather have a wall — and a deal would probably preclude years of litigation in the Ninth Circuit.

Kurt Schlichter and Thomas Lifson are also copacetic with all of this. If you’re upset, you may find comfort in their well-reasoned thoughts.

Also, remember that blame — and blame there is — doesn’t fall on Trump. It falls on lying Leftists who once ostensibly supported a wall, but walked away from the idea when they realized that, having abandoned America’s middle class and blue collar voters, they need votes from illegal aliens. Also, blame Paul Ryan who worked hard to keep the wall from coming to a vote during his tenure as Speaker. Ryan is a real piece of work, and there’s nothing good about that.

A few other points:

One: Baal worship continues unabated in New York, with Proggies dancing around the flames to celebrate human sacrifice in the form of unlimited abortion and a prohibition on caring for full-term infants who survive abortion. I’ve written about this death cult before, so I have nothing to add to?that subject.

What has me most impressed this time around in a bad way is the fact that the bishops refuse to excommunicate the prominent Catholics who passed this law. That makes the bishops entirely complicit in this human sacrifice. I like devout Catholics; but I’ve really come to hate the Church hierarchy, which is an entirely Leftist infected institution. Even those in the church hierarchy who aren’t totally Leftist, like Cardinal Dolan, are elitists and refuse to take on their own “class of people.”

Two: New York Republican Representative Lee Zeldin is putting the increasingly antisemitic Democrat Party on the spot:

Democratic leaders are remaining quiet about a new congressional measure that rejects anti-Semitism and chides a new class of Democratic congressional members for the open embrace of notorious anti-Semites and anti-Israel causes, according to the leading Republican author of that new measure.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.), one of just two Jewish Republicans in Congress, has introduced a new congressional resolution in the House that categorically rejects anti-Semitism in all its forms and calls out some newly elected Democratic members who have ridden a popular wave into Congress on the backs of anti-Semitic leaders and causes, Zeldin told the?Washington Free Beacon?in a wide-ranging interview.

Pelosi is paralyzed because, while the whole Dem Party stalwartly supported Israel (and got the Jewish votes), the new Dem Party is defiantly hostile to Israel — and openly so with the likes of Omar, Tlaib, and Ocasio-Cortez to name just a few of the people who join with other communist, socialist, and fascist governments in fanatic antisemitic hatred.

What saddens me is knowing that Democrat-voting Jews (that’s 70% of all American Jews), while they like to throw a few Yiddish phrases around, fast on the High Holidays, and make latkes for Hanukkah, couldn’t care less about the vote. Their Torah is the explicit Democrat Party platform and the Democrats’ implicit hatred for Israel and traditional Judaism.

Three: And here’s good news — Andrew Sullivan, who lost his mind (literally) over the Iraq War and, especially, Sarah Palin, seems to be returning to the fold. He’ll always be too Leftist for me, but once upon a time, Sullivan was actually sort of conservative and, when he was a conservative, he was actually smart. That intelligence shows up in his take on the attack on the Covington kids:

I did make time to watch the full 100 minutes of?YouTube footage?that covered the scene in front of the Lincoln Memorial long before, during, and after the smirk that was seen across the world.

What I saw was extraordinary bigotry, threats of violence, hideous misogyny, disgusting racism, foul homophobia, and anti-Catholicism 〞 not by the demonized schoolboys, but by grown men with a bullhorn, a small group of self-styled Black Hebrew Israelites. They*re a fringe sect 〞 but an extremely aggressive one 〞 known for inflammatory bigotry in public. The Southern Poverty Law Center has designated them a?hate group: ※strongly anti-white and anti-Semitic.§ They scream abuse at gays, women, white people, Jews, interracial couples, in the crudest of language. In their public display of bigotry, they*re at the same level as the Westboro Baptist sect: shockingly obscene. They were the instigators of the entire affair.

And yet the elite media seemed eager to downplay their role, referring to them only in passing, noting briefly that they were known to be anti-Semitic and anti-gay. After several days, the New York?Times?ran a?news analysis?on the group by John Eligon that reads like a press release from the sect: ※They shout, use blunt and sometimes offensive language, and gamely engage in arguments aimed at drawing listeners near.§ He notes that ※they group people based on what they call nations, believing that there are 12 tribes among God*s chosen people. White people are not among those tribes, they believe, and will therefore be servants when Christ returns to Earth.§ Nothing to see here, folks. Just a bunch of people preaching the enslavement of another race in public on speakers in the most inflammatory language imaginable.

[snip]

To put it bluntly: They were 16-year-olds subjected to verbal racist assault by grown men; and then?the kids?were accused of being bigots. It just beggars belief that the same liberals who fret about ※micro-aggressions§ for 20-somethings were able to see 16-year-olds absorbing the worst racist garbage from religious bigots # and then express the desire to punch the?kids?in the face.

[snip]

How did this grotesque inversion of the truth become the central narrative for what seemed to be the entire class of elite journalists on Twitter? That*s the somewhat terrifying question. Ruth Graham on Slate saw a 16-year-old she*d seen on a tape for a couple of minutes and immediately?knew?that he was indistinguishable from the ※white young men crowding around a single black man at a lunch counter sit-in in Virginia in the 1960s§ or other white ※high school boys?flashing Nazi salutes.§ Even after the full context was clear, Graham?refused to apologize?to the kid, or retract her condemnation: The context didn*t ※change the larger story§ which, she explained, was bigotry toward Native Americans. She cited Trump*s use of the name ※Pocahontas§ for Elizabeth Warren as evidence. But using a bullhorn to call Native Americans ※savages§ and ※drunkards at the casino§ to their faces a few minutes earlier?on the same tape?was not worth a mention?

Graham was just one media voice among countless others, and I don*t mean to single her out. The reason I do is because her argument about the fuller context is now the norm in elite media, and it*s the underlying reason for the instant judgment. ※Racism§ now only means ※prejudice plus power,§ so what the adult Black Israelites yelled was nowhere near as bad as what a white teenager didn*t say. No empirical evidence could ever deny that underlying truth, as a piece at Deadspin?insisted, after admitting that, well yes, there were ※four black men who seem to belong to?the Black Israelites?# yelling insults.§ No mention of the content of those insults, of course.

Sullivan is still Sullivan — a Lefty — so he did make time to insult Trump and his supporters, but he’s one of the few on the Left who has come had with a full-throated attack . . . on his fellow Leftists. That intellectual honesty goes a long way with me.

And last, please pardon my language, but Chuck Schumer is a? little shit. My new name for him, complete with hashtag, is #ShittySchumer:

And with that, I’m back to running around just like Mike.

Nathan Phillips

Anyone who viewed the incident that occurred last Friday at the Lincoln Memorial in its entirety, is instantly suspect of accusations levied by Progressive extremists that Covington Catholic High School students mocked, harassed and shouted?“build that wall” at a 60-something Native American Vietnam War veteran at the same time as Black Hebrew Israelites defamed everyone in sight.

Peeling Back the Lies

Days later, cat out of the bag, we now have the answer.? No effort or research was to get to the truth or better yet, reveal the truth.? Then there is the news that?Native American elder, Randall Phillips, while a Native American, an elder and a veteran, Phillips was never deployed to Vietnam, as finally noted in the last paragraph of one of several Washington Post articles.

Correction: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War. Phillips served in the U.S. Marines from 1972 to 1976 but was never deployed to Vietnam.

Phillips is a radical left-wing activist (see 15:48 of Glenn Beck video further down in post), dishonest and looking to take advantage of the opening to create chaos as presented before him courtesy of the Black Hebrew Israelites up to their own mischief, which Phillips did.

Exposing Nathan Phillips

(screenshot)

About claims that Covington students shouted, “build that wall,” they did not. The Black Hebrew Israelites are the ones who shouted, as can be heard in Glenn Beck’s video “build that wall.,” “build that damned wall.”? Nathan Phillips is the typical Marxist ideologue, an open border advocate, professional agitator and not beneath feeding the media the propaganda that they so crave.

Phillips is a trouble-maker with a history.

In the video several paragraphs down, Glenn Beck breaks down moment by moment events as they unfurled involving the vile assault and smear campaign against male students of Covington Catholic High School last Friday and as it turns out the nasty verbal assault on Native Americans , Black Americans, White folks, etc. during rallies at the Lincoln Memorial, the blame of which was laid at the feet of innocent white teens by the Communist media complex.? It wasn’t long before the truth surfaced that they were pedaling lies and fake news.

(screenshot) Black Israelites taking on Native American

As not reported by the media is that the Black Hebrew Israelites incited the cesspool of evil and hate that spread faster than the flu.? Nathan Phillips saw an opportunity as others who happened to be at the right place at the precise moment. Sensing the opportunity to draw blood (no pun intended), it took less than a New York minute to instigate a lynch mob on social media that spread across day and night time talk shows against teens because of the color of their skin, their MAGA hats, the fact they are Catholic, young and could not defend themselves.

Make no mistake about it, this was an attack on President Donald J. Trump and since the President was not available, high school students of Covington Catholic High School who attended last Friday’s March of Life rally would do nicely. (sarcasm) Now that*s pretty damned despicable!

SIDEBAR

Here in New York City, I have on several occasions crossed paths with Black Hebrew Israelites.? While attending college, these bastards (and I use the term lightly) because I refused to engage them verbally assaulted me and other females as we headed to class.?

There was this one incident that occurred years ago at a party I attended. Two Black Hebrew Israelites attending the same party kept interrupting a discussion between me and a girlfriend of mine.? As time went on, these two men who appeared to be at least 15 years older grew more agitated and hostile (we were in our early 20*s at the time of the incident).? Sensing that they had an agenda, I phoned my brother who ten minutes later arrived out front in a taxi at which point, my girlfriend and I made a hasty exit.

Their modus operandi with females is to make them feel less than worthy after which point, the not so confident female is reeled in to a personal relationship and a life of hell. I was having none of it.? Thank goodness our parents warned us about these men.

Years later, when my son was in high school, Black Hebrew Israelites attempted to recruit him.? I am thankful that he was smart enough to ask me about them.? They are dangerous.? They tend to be more forceful with teenagers and occasionally (to my knowledge) have resorted to violence to reel in young people as they did one of my son’s classmates.

END OF SIDEBAR

(screenshot)

As Beck in the following video takes the time to breaks moment by moment what has been overlooked, the?media with the blessings of the ruling class?did the country a disservice by failing to acknowledge these creeps.? By doing so, they have empowered the Black Hebrew Israelites who will now take the ball and run-down court with it.

 

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Anti-Defamation League have both labeled “factions” of the Black Hebrew Israelites a hate group, which they are,.? However, considering the alliances of the SPLC and ADL, the rationale for labeling the Black Hebrew Israelites has more to do with the fact that the “factions” cannot be controlled. Speaking of “factions,” through my travels, I have encountered or witnessed them when on their bully pulpit and find absolutely no difference in their lexicon.

Furthermore, as one who grew up, traveled, went to school, church and shopped in the same community where there are Black Hebrew Israelites and one who has on more than occasion been targeted by them, they are bad news. Yet, the MeToo Movement being who they are would never take them on nor would their fellow extremists, Black, Hispanic and otherwise.

Advice to tourists visiting New York or any other city — Should you come across this group, keep walking. For some reason, tourists many of whom are Caucasians see this group as a form of entertainment.? Wth??

If you notice in the video below which is in its entirety, uninterrupted, the Black Hebrew Israelites appeal to the people in the crowd to aks them a question.? Don’t do it.? It is at this point that they launch a hateful tirade that goes on forever after which one is expected to pay them for having denigrated and cursing you out.? Don’t get it twisted, they are not there for your amusement and for those who would beg to differ, allow me to use the words of my mother (God bless her), “what are you, a glutton for punishment?”

Warning: The following videos contain – Racist , Raw and Offensive Language.

VIDEO CLIPS (CLEANER) FROM ANOTHER ANGLE:

Below is a video of a not so friendly exchange between the Black Hebrew Israelites and Native Americans whom they refer to as “GAD” because “Indian” means savage…for starters. (Note: I have not confirmed it either way.)

I gather that women should not be heard? “Okay, sister, so what is your problem?” (07:50 of video)

By now Native Americans are banging their drums and chanting, no doubt in response to the rantings of the Black Supremacists. This, of course, is where one begins to get the feeling that if things continue at this pace, all hell will break loose as the Black Hebrew Israelites who have attacked every ethnicity at the Lincoln Memorial makes their way around to President Donald J. Trump, white people, the Catholic Church and “a Five-Dollar Indian?”

And the attacks on teens who pretty much, to their credit, ignored the Black Supremacists:

Throw in a decade plus of propaganda, the knowledge that the deep state through its media operatives has brainwashed millions and Buzzfeed‘s history of fake news, the latest of which resulted in Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller disputing the propagandist’s report that President Donald J. Trump instructed Michael Cohen to make false statements to Congress, there can be no denying that the media is the enemy of the people.

Elizabeth Warren, famed fake Indian and true Leftist wacko, is advancing a tax plan that would effectively rape the U.S. economy.

I’m neither a numbers nor a tax person, but Patrick Ruffini is. I’ll let his tweet thread (which I’ve converted to text for ease of reading) speak for itself:

Don*t call Warren*s tax a 2% tax. Over 10 years it would wipe out 18% of wealth over $50M and over 50 years it would wipe out 64%. Over a billion dollars it would wipe out 27% over 10 years and 82% (!) over 50. And that*s not taking into account the returns on these assets.

We all know about compounding returns. Warren*s 64% wealth tax spread over 50 years would wipe out highly performing assets and use them to fund a bureaucracy with zero social or financial returns.

Due to compound interest, the progressively lower amounts able to be invested year after year due to Warren*s tax would have a much greater effect than 2% a year.

It*s cute that people think these assets aren*t put to use. They*re used to fund the entire startup economy, the #1 net job creator. The massive concentration of wealth is also being used to wipe out malaria, fund clean energy, and reach new frontiers in space.

I flat out trust Jeff Bezos to make these decisions more. I just do. And if you didn*t like the 2016 election results, you do too.

Psst… The Warren tax looks blatantly unconstitutional. It*s not the Wall Street Journal or AEI saying this. It*s… Mother Jones.

Elizabeth Warren Tax Plan Unconstitutional

Regarding Warren herself, Kevin Williamson, who is damn smart when not blinded by TDS, has this to say:

The senator is in a bit of a panic: She hadn*t expected to face a challenge from her left in her quest for the Democratic nomination, but as her entire party lurches in a ch芍vista direction, she has been forced to go one step farther lest she fall into the ※moderate§ class, whose members almost certainly will be slaughtered in the 2020 Democratic primary. And so she proposes this ridiculous and illegal course of action.

She may not be the radical she pretends to be, but Senator Warren has pretended to be a lot of things. A Cherokee, for one, which is good for a laugh, but perhaps not the worst of it. Her longing for fame 〞 and money and power 〞 is impossible to miss. She spent a period trying to launch a career as a writer of dopey self-help books (The Ultimate Lifetime Money Plan!) and then tried on the costume of a Lou Dobbs-style populist China hawk, and even in her scourge-of-Wall-Street incarnation, she couldn*t help cribbing from Margaret Thatcher in pandering to Dobbs, then at CNN: ※One of the problems with spending money in this way is that at some point we really do run out of money.§ She boasted that her little bureaucratic fiefdom 〞 the Congressional Oversight Panel 〞 was called ※COP.§ Her ※professor of color§ act got her a couple of cushy academic postings and a net worth of a few million dollars. I covered her Senate race against Scott Brown and watched her doing a pretty poor impersonation of an Irish-American ward-heeler in Boston, clapping along awkwardly to ※Charlie on the M.T.A.§ like some animatronic Muldoon. If she has to pretend to be Hugo Ch芍vez, it won*t be her first act of cultural appropriation. And the recipe book should be a hoot.

As you know, I loathe the woman, going back to her pre-Native American, pre-Harvard days. She had a superficial sweetness, but was an incoherent lecturer and dishonest. It was the dishonesty that left me with a permanent bad taste in my mouth about this neo-Leftist hack.

Akhmed and the Atomic Matzo Balls is a delightfully funny novel that, though written some time ago, perfectly captures the craziness of 2019 in America.

For the sheer pleasure of it, I was reading a couple of travel short stories by my friend, author Gary Buslik. He really is an extraordinary writer. His short stories are complex without being confusing; his images are incredibly rich; and the emotion pulsing through the stories comes through clear and strong without ever overwhelming the narrative.

Gary is also very funny, as you can tell just from the title of his travel book, A Rotten Person Travels the Caribbean: A Grump in Paradise Discovers that Anyplace it’s Legal to Carry a Machete is Comedy Just Waiting to Happen. If you’re not up for a full-length travel book, but prefer anthologies, Gary’s essays are included in The Best Travel Writing 2011: True Stories from Around the World and the less elegantly titled Wake Up and Smell the Shit: Hilarious Travel Disasters, Monstrous Toilets, and a Demon Dildo.

What I really want to write about here, though, is Gary’s novel Akhmed and the Atomic Matzo Balls: A Novel of International Intrigue, Pork-Crazed Termites, and Motherhood, which is now selling for a nicely discounted $6.95. I think it deserves a re-read because, though written some time ago, it perfectly characterizes the florid craziness that is America — and, indeed, the entire Western hemisphere — at the dawn of 2019. When I first read the book several years ago, I was constantly laughing. Here’s the review I wrote at the time:


One of my rules of thumb when reading a book, or watching a movie for that matter, is that I have to like at least some of the characters in the book.? Since I’m investing my time in the book or the movie, I want to be in the company of pleasant people.? After all, outside of the entertainment world, I don’t willingly want to spend time in the company of people who disgust me.

I discovered over the past couple of days, though, that there is an exception to this rule, and that exception is Gary Buslik’s Akhmed and the Atomic Matzo Balls: A Novel of International Intrigue, Pork-Crazed Termites, and Motherhood.?Akhmed and the Atomic Matzo Balls is peopled by some of the most unpleasant, malevolent, and stupid characters you can imagine — but it’s so clever and funny that I, the reader, was delighted to follow their complicated, self-serving, insane machinations.

I’m actually not quite sure how to describe the book without diluting the pleasure you’ll get should you decide to read it.? The book’s own description doesn’t do it justice, but I’ll offer it for what it’s worth:

Iranian president Akhmed teams up with the leaders of Venezuela and Cuba and their American intelligence agents to smuggle radioactive matzo balls into Miami Beach. But intelligence being as slippery a concept to these nincompoops as chicken fat on linoleum, when each member of the gang decides to ladle out his own personal nuke soup, holy terror Akhmed is left steaming. Will his plan to destroy America float like a fly or sink like a lead dumpling?

Star-crossed lovers, conniving academics, and blustery social climbers collide with ravenous termites, international do-badders, and multi-level marketing in a plot as fast-paced and hilarious as a runaway mountain bus. Radioactivity has never been so much fun.

Those bland paragraphs leave out the delights of seeing the inside workings of the mind of a far-Left academic, keeping up with the Iranian president’s manic dancing, watching the Venezuelan dictator dream of mass-marketing schemes, and generally following a serpentine plot that moves effortlessly from Iran, to Cuba, to Haiti, and to the high seas, with stopovers in Chicago, New York and Miami Beach.

One of the things I liked best about the book is that Gary Buslik loves words.? His prose is rich and vivid.? He also recognizes when people, rather than loving words, abuse them for obfuscation and self-aggrandizement.? My favorite character — and, incidentally, the most unpleasant character in the book — is the pompous Prof. Les Fenwich.? Buslik has clearly been studying the Leftist academic mind very closely.? Watching Les giving himself permission to order Kobe dish at an expensive restaurant is a rare pleasure:

Unlike the Delmonico, this Kobe meat sat well with Les’s conscience.? Kobe was Japanese beef, from Japanese cows that had been fed only the finest grains, never force-fed, never rushed to market.? True, at a gazillion dollars a pound . . . the meat did seem a bit pricey, but didn’t we owe them that?? Didn’t we racistly and cruelly intern Japanese-Americans at the start of World War II?? Didn’t we murder, maim, and genetically deform thousands of their civilians — the elderly, women, children, handicapped — by dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki — vile, unnecessary, barbarous acts whose only true motive was a show of force that would ensure the supremacy of the American military-industrial complex?

And on and on, until Les concludes that it’s his patriotic duty as an America-hater to order Kobe beef.? But really, how could Les think otherwise?? As his former lover remembers him, he is a completely hypnotic speaker, if you like bombastic, unintelligible prose:

His long, complex sentences, stitched with discursive subordinate clauses, phrase slathered upon phrase, digression after digression, turned on themselves in eddying pools, only to eventually emerge into grammatical Valhalla — the syntactical equivalent of rapids rushing over a waterfall before settling into a placid alpine lake.? She adored the way he used compound adjectives, convoluted modifiers that precariously dangled, metaphysical tropes, and Latinate roots with Anglo-Saxon appendages.

(Right now, I’m trying to convince myself that I am a better and less pompous writer and speaker than Prof. Les Fenwich.)


If you’d like to take a step back from today’s rather frightening insanity, while at the same time having a good laugh about it, I cannot recommend highly enough Gary Buslik’s Akhmed and the Atomic Matzo Balls: A Novel of International Intrigue, Pork-Crazed Termites, and Motherhood.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Kamala Harris: I want to share with you a few thoughts I’ve had about two women who are unaccomplished but still dangerous.

Re Ocasio-Cortez:

1. The woman is a dim bulb, defined by ignorance and inanity.

2. Her low wattage does not make her any less dangerous.

3. She is dangerous because she is a master of the modern medium.

4. She is the living embodiment of Marshall McLuhan’s statement that “the medium is the message.” That she lacks substance, knowledge, wit, logical ability, or any other qualities that matter for governance, is irrelevant; she can communicate in 21st century fashion and that is sufficient to elevate her.

5. If we only ridicule her, we actually enhance her “medium as message” status.

6. We should treat her utterances seriously and, even as we expose each fallacy, nevertheless maintain a respectful tone. (You’ll notice that I’ve long since stopped doing “dumb Ocasio-Cortez” posters in my illustrated editions.) Remember, that she is a dim bulb is irrelevant. She’s a shiny, pretty, bubbly socialist who knows that communication, rather than substance, is currently the only thing that matters.

7. Do not call her “AOC.” It’s easy to type, but it elevates her to “Barbra,” “Bono,” “Cher” or “Hillary” status.” Given her mastery of the medium, Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t need our help.

Re Kamala Harris

1. Tyler O’Neil has an excellent rundown?about the substantive problems with Kamala Harris — she is a Leftist who uses state power as a bludgeon against those with whom she disagrees.

2. Local rumor has it that, despite her achievements, she got them the old-fashioned way, not through intelligence and competence but through the casting couch — in this case, the casting couch was the bed of Willie Brown. If you haven’t heard of Brown, he was the first black man to serve in the California legislature, he’s a kingmaker, he’s extraordinarily smart, he has a great deal of charm, and he’s a pure political animal. When he was in his 60s and married, he had an affair with Kamala and handed her all sorts of political sinecures that paid her vast amounts of taxpayer money for doing almost nothing.

3. Kamala is lucky that she had the casting couch and didn’t rely on intelligence and competence because local rumor has something to say about that too: She’s neither very intelligent nor very competent. She’s power-hungry and hard Left.

4. Kamala has all the charm of Elizabeth Warren.

5. Kamala has all the originality of Hillary Clinton. Here’s what Kamala said as part of her announcement that she was throwing her hat in the ring:

It is my full intention to travel this country and sit in living rooms and listen to families and let them express their concerns and their needs. It is about representing all of the people in the country.

Does that sound familiar? If you think you’ve heard it before, you’re correct. Here’s Hillary in 1999, when she ran for Senate in New York:

Hillary Clinton is eager to begin this tour and looks forward to listening to New Yorkers across the state.

And here’s Hillary in 2015, making her second attempt at the White House:

I want people to know that I*m listening, and that I*m accessible, and I*m running a campaign about them. … That*s the kind of campaign I want to run.

At least in Hillary’s case, when it came to the presidency, listening couldn’t compensate for a grating personality and a lack of actual accomplishments.

6. Despite all the negatives, Kamala is dangerous: She’s female and non-white. That in and of itself makes her a front-runner.

The Left’s obsession with identity politics doesn’t favor the other candidates: If they’re female, they’re white; if they’re gay, they’re white; if they’re Biden, they’re old, white, and creepy; and if they’re Hispanic, they’re male. Kamala ticks off two boxes that are extremely important to a political party that has become superficial in a way early 20th century avatars of external qualities — the KKK, the Nazis, eugenicists, those who opposed votes for women, etc. — would fully appreciate.

CONSERVATIVES ALREADY KNOW liberal media is an enemy of the people. We recognize leftist, mass communication interconnections as a runaway propaganda monster. It has no boundaries, no limits, no love, and no honor.

THIS ARTICLE FIRST APPEARED IN CONSERVATIVERIGHTWINGNEWS.COM

HOWARD BEAL, in the movie NETWORK, 1976:

You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here, you’re beginning to believe that the tube is reality and your own lives are unreal. You do. Why, whatever the tube tells you: you dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube, you even think like the tube. This is mass madness, you maniacs.

In God’s name, you people are the real thing,

WE are the illusion.

The socialist, mass-communications juggernaut?hates?America〞it hates capitalism, Trump, and conservatives.

In talking to liberals themselves I see a common pattern: they seem to be ordinary people who?believe the media. They believe the media lies. They believe almost everything their media tells them〞Rachel, Jake, Jim, Chuck, CNN, MSNBC, the NYT, and other deniers of Truth, Justice, and the American Way.

Even if the narrative changes, as in the media-exploited Covington Incident, it doesn*t necessarily change liberal belief. ※It doesn*t change the facts,§ we are told by some.

New facts that the ※respected tribal elder§ Nathan Phillips lied about his background don*t necessarily change the committed liberal mind. It doesn*t matter to a True Believer that Phillips lied.

It has been reliably reported that Phillips was never a SEAL; he was never in Viet Nam; he has a violent criminal record; he escaped from prison; he seems to be a ※nutcase;§ he*s a professional activist; he*s a liar; his name isn*t ※Phillips.§

Ordinary liberals from America seem to be about one half the population. Democrats and socialists are importing and smuggling illegals from all over the world, yes. And these illegals are already inculcated in socialist dogma and ways. Democrats seem as if they can*t act fast enough to move these illegal aliens through voter-registration. This has swelled the liberal ranks, yes.

But I*m talking here about ordinary Americans. Not Democrat-voting illegals. I*m referencing one half the population who seem to be of a prior liberal nature. Why are they liberals and not conservatives?

Because they believe media lies. They are born liberal-minded. They are naturally made that way. How did that happen?

In my opinion, liberals were bred.

Liberals were necessarily bred to support cities, kings, queens, Systems, and their enforcers. It*s already in Liberals to believe.?It*s in them to follow. It*s in them to want the ※removal§ of anybody not like them.

Is this a form of ※soft psychosis?§ To destroy what is not them? Yes. But it*s also now ※normal.§ It*s what remains after more than 10,000 years of breeding to support ※civilization§ and its Systems. Its control.

Those whom the Ruler supported were permitted the best jobs, the most rewards, and felt more like breeding. Those whom the Power did Not support were found, fixed in place, denied, blocked, shunned, and destroyed. It*s why breeding is low in America, but extremely high in socialist or one-world Hispanic and Islamic domains.

Suppression and destruction. It*s what goes on in front of you every day in America. It*s in the ※news,§ movies, TV, ※social media,§ and pretty much everywhere you look, 24/7. It*s a main theme of the world-wide liberal, propaganda dreadnought. The media.

Prior to World War II, corporate-owned mass media discovered it could sway hearts and minds with a ※magical§ approach to reality. ?It began an intuitive war on conservatism and America, to increase control and therefore profit.

For over a hundred years, beginning with radio, Americans have been bred from birth to believe what they are told on ※magical§ boxes like, radio and TV.

Americans have been subjected to all-powerful cereals, rejuvenating miracle drinks, ※healthful§ tobacco, dancing cigarettes, and even the ※life-giving§ properties of radium.

Americans are inculcated by All-Knowing radio and TV ※experts.§?By talkers who can be 100% wrong but remain as ※authorities,§ anyway.

American babies in cradles and dens of America are subjected to unending ※news,§ views, and moving pictures. The talking head on the screen is godlike, in that it can jump across the planet instantly. It can be both in the audience and on the screen at the same time. Fantastical sets and graphics help make magical images seem all-powerful.

And whoever is on a controlled screen is made to seem as if they know EVERYTHING. Like gods looking down and granting wishes from Mount Olypus.

It*s magic. Media replaces long-lost wisdom of gods and goddesses. It replaces the lost, old ways to be. It substitutes Itself for how-to-live-your-short-life-here. It fundamentally transforms what you should do with your short span alive.

The media and its godlike talking heads have replaced innate humanity with their own vapid, indoctrinated selves. What was once human, Mythic Wisdom of the Ages is gone. Who we once were has been replaced by Miley, Kim, L*il Whoever, Rachel, Chuck, Snoop, and Who The Hell Knows.

We no longer hear great mythic tales of morality and glory.?Now all we have is attractive, show-biz ※delivery.§?And unmitigated cowflop.

Half the population seems ※meant§ to be part of a gene pool. But not meant to control such POWER over the human mind.

The real enemy is, therefore, Mass Communications Media〞used by corporate and political forces as a propaganda weapon to control and fundamentally transform the World. Into what? Why?

It*s about enslavement of Humanity, rule, profit, one religion, one color, and One Socialist World.

Oh, but wait. Does that sound so bad?

Yes.

From my extremely long life and perspective, that sounds really bad.

 

* * Howard Beale, in the movie, NETWORK (1976):

In God’s name, you people are the real thing, WE are the illusion.§

※I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there’s no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that’s the way it’s supposed to be! We know things are bad – worse than bad, They’re crazy! It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don’t go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, ‘Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won’t say anything. Just leave us alone!’ Well, I’m not gonna leave you alone! I want you to get MAD! I don’t want you to protest. I don’t want you to riot – I don’t want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn’t know what to tell you to write. I don’t know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you’ve got to get mad! You’ve got to say, “I’m a HUMAN BEING, GODDAMNIT! My LIFE has VALUE!!” So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now, and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out and yell: “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!!” I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell – ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad!… You’ve got to say, ‘I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it:

I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!!§

(h/t Paul Dughi, Sports Raid, June 2016)

Jim Thorpe was a Native American Indian of the Sac and Fox nation in Oklahoma. in the early 1900*s, an orphan, he went?to the Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania and made up one half of?the?school*s entire track team, which competed among some well known colleges.?He also?played football, (they beat Harvard) and was selected to be on?the 1912 US Olympic Team in Stockholm.

He competed in both the pentathlon and decathlon, first winning the pentathlon. Then, after someone stole his shoes right before he was set to compete in the decathlon, he found two mismatched shoes in a trash can.They were different sizes, though, so he had to wear extra socks on one foot to even them out.

He went on to win?his second?Gold medal.

After Carlisle he went onto play professional football for 11 years, was a consensus All-American football player two years, 1911-1912, 1st Team all-pro, 1923, NFL All-Decade Pro Team, to go along with his two Gold Medals was voted the greatest American athlete of the 20th Century.

He did in 1953 at age 64, which was 2 years before recent notable Indian, Nathan Philips was born, and who is also 64 years old, only with no notable accomplishments other than having shared a tour to Vietnam with Sen Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut.

Stolen valor.

Hoka Hey!

(That*s all.)
