“Obama wasn’t just a bad general or even an atrocious one. Consciously and/or unconsciously, he was on the other side.

“Sound exaggerated? Then ask yourself this — why would a man as intelligent as Barack Obama 1. telegraph his intentions and pull-out date to the enemy, 2. not keep a decent military presence in Iraq, leaving it wide open to the nascent ISIS or similar religious maniacs and 3. give so much money to the Iranian mullahs in pursuit of a chimerical nuclear deal with a result that they are now all over the Middle East, killing as many people as possible and perpetuating the endless Syrian civil war (with literally millions of refugees), while testing ICBMs for the day when that (sort of) deal expires? And that’s leaving out the red line, the complete punting on North Korea, etc.

“I thought this was supposed to be the smartest guy in the room. Well, if you don’t like America and want to see it neutered, maybe he is.

“But our media of course will not even go near this. They would rather attack Trump for whatever — in the case of his Afghanistan speech for using it to again downplay Charlottesville. (For an example, see the tweets from NPR’s oh-so-sophisticated political editor. These people are so fixated on Trump’s non-existent racism, they probably wouldn’t have even alter their views if half their families had been wiped out on Barcelona’s La Rambla last week. It’s almost a monomania with them. Two hundred hapless loser neo-Nazis with comb-overs are more of a threat than radical Islamists who have killed 1275, wounded 932, in 179 attacks in 25 countries in July 2017 alone!)”

Po-Dunk: The Current Kid Rock Campaign Video

Nationalism In Po-Dunk – PA Kid Rock’s people in rural Michigan are giving the middle finger to the conservatives who had stabbed them in the back, and to the liberals who want them blended out of existence. “Po-Dunk” follows the same angry current as that of Michigan’s other native son, Michael Moore, who featured those same people in his unintentionally pro-Trump campaign video. Did you forget about Moore’s “Biggest Fuck You in Human History”? I didn’t.

Yes, on November 8, you — Joe Blow, Steve Blow, Bob Blow, Billy Blow, Billy-Bob Blow, all the Blows — get to go and blow up the whole goddamned system because it’s your right. Trump’s election is going to be the biggest “Fuck You” ever recorded in human history and it will feel good. — Michael Moore

“Shine, Perishing Republic” by Robinson Jeffers


While this America settles in the mould of its vulgarity,
    heavily thickening to empire,
And protest, only a bubble in the molten mass, pops
    and sighs out, and the mass hardens,

I sadly smiling remember that the flower fades to make fruit,
    the fruit rots to make earth.
Out of the mother; and through the spring exultances,
    ripeness and decadence; and home to the mother.

You making haste haste on decay: not blameworthy; life is good,
    be it stubbornly long or suddenly
A mortal splendor: meteors are not needed less than mountains:
    shine, perishing republic.

But for my children, I would have them keep their distance from
    the thickening center; corruption
Never has been compulsory, when the cities lie at the monster’s
    feet there are left the mountains.

And boys, be in nothing so moderate as in love of man, a clever
    servant, insufferable master.
There is the trap that catches noblest spirits, that caught—they say—
    God, when he walked on earth.

The La-Z-Boy of the Labyrinth


“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, and every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Noting exists except the endless present in which the party is always right.” – George Orwell, 1984

First, you must understand what drives the majority of leftists and 100% of leftist politicians – laziness.

I’m not talking about the hard-working life-long union democrat. The tradesman or laborer who actually produces something of value and votes democrat “because that’s how grand-daddy did it and we’re a democrat family damnit!” I’m talking the Hillary Clinton’s, the Debbie Wasserman-Schultzes, the Stalin’s, the Mao Zedong’s, the SJW’s, the Bernie Sanders, the leftist professors, the MSM and their journalism-majoring ilk, nearly all liberal arts majors, and the Game-Of-Thrones-esque North Korean leaders. All of them, democratically elected or not, politicians or not, are the world’s “leftist elite” who deem it their right and position in life to tell others what to do. To lead, but never toil in the field. To command, but never contribute one calorie of energy to bringing about their “glorious leftist utopia.” All of them, NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY, are driven first and foremost by laziness. And this laziness trumps EVERYTHING, EVERYONE, AND ANYTHING in their lives. It rules their lives. It dominates their psyche. It determines and influences every decision. Their entire operating program, their entire point and purpose in life is simply to avoid toil, work, and rigor as much as possible. Captain Capitalism: Why the Left Will Always and Inevitably Eat Their Own

Black America is in jeopardy.

For every 100 black women of marrying age there are only 81 men: the rest are dead or in jail. Seventy-three percent of African-American children are born out of marriage. Although universities admit blacks and whites in roughly equal proportions, only 40% of black men graduate within six years of matriculation. Agony over these circumstances motivates the witch-hunt against imagined “micro-aggression,” as I wrote two years ago. The “micro-aggression” theory does not explain why African-American women (who presumably are doubly oppressed for being both black and female) have a much higher college graduation rate (50% as opposed to 40%) than black men.

Now, to the people who lived through the 50’s and 60’s, it probably felt as if the youth simply went insane and tried to drag the nation with them. Just as we are seeing today, it was the ruling elite that went bonkers, abdicating their duties and letting their rotten kids go berserk in the streets. That’s the important part of it though. The late 60’s and early 70’s were a multi-generational war on decency. The youth rampaging through the streets, terrifying the white middle-class, did so at the behest of their parents. Pseudomorphosis | The Z Blog

I think the rise of social media — and especially the widespread use of Twitter by journalists and politicians — has made things much crazier. Thanks to the ability to block or unfriend people with whom one disagrees, it’s much easier to live in a political/ideological bubble than it was even a decade ago. And my impression is that many journalists now write and tweet more to impress their peers than to serve their audiences. Trump hysteria & an eclipse usher in our crazy years [click to continue…]

RANT-O-MATIC of the Day: A War Of Religion

“The left could care less about this issue (Confederate statuary), as they could care less about any of their issues. “The issue is never the issue, the issue is always revolution”. This is why they got gay marriage, then just moved on to Trans rights while shrugging off 50 gays getting killed in Orlando. When the transgender fight is over it’ll be pedo rights or whatever.

“Very soon there will be a push to get rid of the entire American Revolution and all of the founding fathers. Jefferson will be first, but Washington won’t be far behind.

“Overriding all of this is the push to declare all of conservatism illegal. All religions not part of the cult of leftism are hate speech. Any support of the USA as a country is hateful, bigoted and evil. You supporting your own existence or political power is racism, nationalism and white supremacy….

“The ideology is self-reinforcing towards runaway radicalism. The only thing that stops it is pushback prior to their take over or burnout after it takes over and fails. It has no internal limits.”

An American, one of the roughs, a kosmos,… No sentimentalist …. no stander above men and women or apart from them…
— Whitman, Leaves of Grass (1855)

“I am not an American, I am THE American.”
-– Mark Twain

Remember when Hillary Clinton, during her 2007 attempt to rule the world, stopped calling herself a “liberal” and rebranded herself as a “progressive?”

I do.

This relabeling from “Liberal” to “Progressive” was Clinton’s desperate attempt to crawl out from under the vast heap of crap she and all the other “liberals” had piled on themselves -– notably during her own husband’s administration. And who, when trying to run, wanted to have that old “liberal” ball and chain around her thick ankles? Not Hillary.

By 2007 “Liberal” had become so drenched in sewage liberals could only clean it through “rebranding.”

The new/old brand name chosen was ‘progressive.’

And it worked for them — and for Obama — just long enough to get them elected the first time by a credulous public who had seemingly never heard “progressive” before.

“Progressive…” it sounded so, well, hopeful. It was, after all, not “trans-” but “pro-“gressive.

After all, who can be against “progress?” Who is not pro “pro?”

Who, that is, except the vast majority of older Americans who had seen the wreckage that the progressives’ “progress” had wrought wherever it touched down on the American landscape.

Still, the recloaking of ye olde “liberal” wolves inside of the “Progressive Sheeps’ Clothing” worked well enough with the young and stupid as well as the old and malicious.

“Progressive” caught on because it junked “liberal” but didn’t say “socialist.” At least not in so many syllables.

That was then. Now, of course, “progressive” as a brand has become synonymous with cheats, control-addicts, the walking brain-dead, lying Social Justice Warriors, and the power junkies that want to tell you all about the bad McDonalds Happy Meals in condom chewing San Francisco.

Today “Progressive” is as dead as Hitler’s charred corpse smoldering in a ditch outside the bunker on Pennsylvania Avenue. But “progressives” don’t know they’re crispy critters because they can’t entertain any ideas that weren’t minted in ye olde Soviet Union. So let’s let them keep it.

Let those bitter aging boomers cling to their Darwins and their “progressive” programs and labels. Progressives, after all, are the queens of worthless labels.

What we need to do is a little “rebranding” of our own in order to blunt the brain-dead attacks that keep coming from the attack poodles of the left. Attacks that when examined are all aimed at the label “Conservative” or “Republican” or, most recently, “Alt-Right.”

“Conservative.” “Liberals.” These two categories are not the same. Not all “Conservatives” are “Republicans,” and – unfortunately for the life expectancy of the Republican party – not all “Republicans” are “Conservative.”

An attempt to pull all the Trump voters into one group was made under the ham-handed and, frankly, Deep State 1984esque label, “Alt-Right.” This label commits several branding errors in one cast. First, it has a hyphen and hyphens in labels have signaled nothing but “troublemakers” for decades now. Second, it has internal phonetic errors that echo German pronunciation as “Alt! Reich!” Not a good echo. Third, it insinuates all those under its umbrella are on the Right, which is not the case in a populist movement such as the Trumpening. Many do not wish to be lumped in with rightists of any sort. In short the attempt to make us all “Alt-Right” simply isn’t making it.

Let’s dump all three brands: Conservative, Republican, and Alt-Right.

I don’t know about you, but I do not consider myself either a “Conservative” or a “Republican” or a member of the “Alt-Right.” Never have. Never will. I consider myself to be one thing and one thing only:


I AM AN AMERICAN.

Here Comes the Sun

(I still miss George most of all.)

You, Andrew Marvell

And here face down beneath the sun
And here upon earth’s noonward height
To feel the always coming on
The always rising of the night:

 

To feel creep up the curving east
The earthy chill of dusk and slow
Upon those under lands the vast
And ever climbing shadow grow

The Falling Hammer 


Highway Inn: 1928 | Shorpy |

Fredericksburg, Virginia, circa 1928. “Brick house, Princess Anne Street.”

One of the things to love about old photos is that they sometimes freeze moments we don’t even notice at the time. Here’s a moment I noticed in passing. Happened back in 1928, or thereabouts. A man was building what seems to be a foundation for some sort of expansion.It may have been a hot day and his hands were sweating. It may have been early morning with a vicious hangover following a long night of drinking. Or it may simply have been an accident.

No matter. At the moment the hammer slipped, the shutter tripped … and you have this small little misstep — a hammer midway between heaven and earth (Aren’t we all?) frozen for all time.

We die with the dying:
See, they depart, and we go with them.
We are born with the dead:
See, they return, and bring us with them.
The moment of the rose and the moment of the yew-tree
Are of equal duration. A people without history
Is not redeemed from time, for history is a pattern
Of timeless moments.
— Eliot, Quartets

The house? It survives to this day, even though it has been moved from its 1928 location.

Lemonade Stands In the Labyrinth

This is the level of punitive PC, utterly fascistic, utterly Stalinist, that my liberal colleagues in the Democratic Party and on college campuses have supported and promoted over the last several decades. The whole legacy of the free speech 1960s has been lost by my own party. – — Camille Paglia


Once Upon A Time …. in a universe far, far away…. Grace Kelly’s wedding dress: a cherished symbol of bridal elegance Over 30 seamstresses had been hired to make the elegant garment that Kelly wore to the religious ceremony. It included gorgeous sleeves made of the finest lace, a high collar, and a full skirt. The dress consisted of a bodice with an under-bodice included and an attached support for the skirt. The dress was created from lace of the “Brussels delicate rose” type, which was over 120 years old, and taffeta and tulle supported by a soft, light-woven skirt with three petticoats: a smoothing one, a ruffled one. and one which was set as a foundation.

The beautiful outfit was jazzed up with a 90-yard veil attached to a beaded, floral Juliet cap, worn instead of the classic bridal tiara. In her hands, Kelly carried a delicate bouquet of Lilies of the Valley and a tiny prayer book, coated with pearls. Her shoes were designed by David Evins, and included silk needle lace, silk faille, seed pearls, and glass beads. Following an old traditional custom, Evins hid a copper coin in her right shoe in order to attract good fortune.

Fish with a man, and you will learn who he is though his actions rather than conversation. Partners are expected to be ready at the appointed hour, proper equipment in hand, with a clear mind and ready spirit. At any level of skill, nature and fish can humble a man, so the endeavor must be treated with respect. It is not just an excuse to drink, nor to fetishize expensive tackle. It is a test of your organizational and technical abilities, your knowledge of the surroundings, and your judgement. Special care must be taken if a boat is involved, as the logistics are complicated and the gravity of errors compounded. Fishing For The Reactionary – Social Matter

How Toxic Femininity Turned Men Into Tranny Chasers   There’s no way around it – women today are nowhere near as attractive as they were 20 years ago. The Great Big Lie of third wave feminism, complete with all its body-positivity mumbo-jumbo, has convinced women that it’s okay to be morbidly obese, dyke-ish, adverse to even basic forms of hygiene and walk around with full blown mustaches, and that men will just have to change their own preconceived notions of beauty and roll with it. After all, women do have the vaginas, don’t they, and men will do anything to spill their precious seed inside them, even if it means bumping uglies with a 400-pound, smelly, tatted up Skankasaurus, right?

Huge Blobs of Fat and Trash Are Filling the World’s Sewers      t’s fitting that the word “fatberg” was coined by the people who know fatbergs best: the sewer workers of Thames Water. The description, conjuring up a pale floating mass of epic proportions, is far catchier than the American version—the acronym FOG, which stands for fat, oil, and grease. Fatbergs caught on well enough to make it into the Oxford English Dictionary in 2015, alongside “Brexit.”

As fatbergs have grown, scientists have learned more about how they form and how to fight them. For starters, scientists only recently discovered that most of the mass in fatbergs is actually a form of sewer-made soap.

In 2011, Joel Ducoste of North Carolina State University and his team reported that the same process that can turn lard into soap, called saponification, happens in sewer grease if calcium’s around. The team even created miniature fatbergs in the laboratory that grew on calcium-rich concrete, a clue to how the blobs get so massive in certain sewers.

The science of cosmology has achieved wonders in recent centuries. It has enlarged the world we can see and think about by ontological orders of magnitude. Cosmology wrenched the Earth from the centre of the Universe, and heaved it, like a discus, into its whirling orbit around one unremarkable star among the billions that speed around the black-hole centre of our galaxy, a galaxy that floats in deep space with billions of others, all of them colliding and combining, before they fly apart from each other for all eternity. Art, literature, religion and philosophy ignore cosmology at their peril.

But cosmology’s hot streak has stalled. Cosmologists have looked deep into time, almost all the way back to the Big Bang itself, but they don’t know what came before it. They don’t know whether the Big Bang was the beginning, or merely one of many beginnings. Something entirely unimaginable might have preceded it. Cosmologists don’t know if the world we see around us is spatially infinite, or if there are other kinds of worlds beyond our horizon, or in other dimensions. And then the big mystery, the one that keeps the priests and the physicists up at night: no cosmologist has a clue why there is something rather than nothing.

To solve these mysteries, cosmologists must make guesses about events that are absurdly remote from us. Guth’s theory of inflation is one such guess. It tells us that our Universe expanded, exponentially, a trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second after the Big Bang. In most models of this process, inflation’s expansive kick is eternal. It might cease in particular parts of the cosmos, as it did in our region, after only a fraction of a second, when inflation’s energy transformed into ordinary matter and radiation, which time would sculpt into galaxies. But somewhere outside our region, inflation continued, generating an infinite number of new regions, including those that are roaring into existence at this very moment.

Not all these regions are alike. Quantum mechanics puts a slot-machine spin on the cosmic conditions of every region, so that each has its own physical peculiarities. Some contain galaxies, stars, planets, and maybe even people. Others are entirely devoid of complex structures. Many are too alien to imagine. The slice of space and time we can see from Earth is 90 billion light years across. Today’s inflationary models tell us that this enormous expanse is only one small section of one tiny bubble that floats along in a frothy sea whose proportions defy comprehension. This vision of the world is wondrous, in its vastness and variety, in the sheer range of possibilities it suggests to the mind. But could it ever be proved?

Illegals scamper towards Canada. One free ride ends. Another free ride begins.

Canada may soon elect somebody who promises to build a wall on its southern border:

“Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle. 1,477 people live in this little corner of Quebec with its apple orchards, elderberry fields and small wineries. But now 400 migrants can cross the border in a single day.

“On the other side of the border is New York. There the language is English. In Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, the language of choice is French. But these days you’re a more likely to hear Arabic, Urdu or Haitian French being spoken here as Roxham Road fills with clots of migrants scampering out of America.

“They’re not the leftist American celebs who threaten to leave for Canada if their side doesn’t win the election. Instead they’re the illegal and dubiously legal who got the message from President Trump.

“The overloaded Mounties at the border crossing are being forced to cope with the jabbering illegals, grifters and fake refugees of Trump’s migrant surge. But where Obama’s migrant surge swelled America’s southern border with incoming migrants, Trump’s migrant surge is expelling them north.


If Canada believed in omens….

“The Syrians, or anyone claiming to be, are coming. So are the Sudanese, Somalis and Haitians. This is an informal border crossing and so the rules that might protect Canada from this horde don’t apply.

“Quebec has become the weakest link in the Canadian border with the vast majority of border migrants invading the “True North” through vulnerable points like the dead end of Roxham Road.”

Interesting to see how different video creators put images together behind this classic monologue by the late Bill Hicks from 1992.

“The world is like a ride at an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think it’s real, because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round and it has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly colored and it’s very loud. And it’s fun, for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: ‘Is this real? Or is this just a ride?’ And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and they say ‘Hey! Don’t worry, don’t be afraid — ever — because… this is just a ride.’ And we kill those people.

‘Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride! Shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry; look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real.’ It’s just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that — ever notice that? — and we let the demons run amok. But it doesn’t matter, because… it’s just a ride, and we can change it any time we want. It’s only a choice. No effort. No worry. No job. No savings and money. Just a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy bigger guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.

Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, into a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defense each year and, instead, spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would do many times over — not one human being excluded — and we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever. In peace.”

It’s not wrong to have good ideals but it would be interesting to know how Hicks would reformulate this today in light of the woeful history of the 21st Century to date.

Glittering Rant-O-Matic of the Moment


“Not content to merely play the role of Emanuel Goldstein with a wink and a nod to the Democrats and their Media overlords, with the victory of Donald Trump, their hatred of this man and by extension we who elected him has caused this group of supine stooges to actually lose their minds. John McCain, Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio are consciously and willingly helping to mainstream the ranks of Democrat-protected and funded terrorists and anarchists while blood-libeling we the people and the President as racist crackpots. It would be bad enough if these three bastards were merely backbenchers from a battleground state. They’re not; they are leaders of the party and presidential candidates, two of whom were nominees.

Confederate monuments: So what? Now What?

“A people without history / Is not redeemed from time” — Eliot

Let us suppose every public statue or monument to the Confederacy is removed as fast as their opponents want. “So what? Now what?” Who exactly will be better off? Black unemployment will be unchanged. The risk of horrific war with North Korea will not be lowered. The near-total breakdown of civility in our political life will not be improved. The inability, indeed, unwillingness, of the parties in Washington to come together to govern well will not increase. Obamacare will continue to fail and there will continue to be nothing on the docket to replace or repair it. Al Qaeda will still attempt to carry out the attacks it recently promised against mass-transportation means in the United States.What difference will it make, exactly?

To Removers of Monuments

Those impassive, silent guardians – will their gaze no longer shame you?
Have they been forever banished? Are you sure?
Can you finally stroll in comfort streets bereft of all reminders?
Is their valor gone, as if it never were?

Spiteful children! Did it gall you that someone so loved, respected these,
Enough to raise their monuments on high—
And you know you’ve never earned any respect, and never will,
And your blog will be deleted when you die?

“Ingrate, vandal, ignoramus,
Meddler, coward, bully, fool”
Those are titles your pedestal might bear,
Were your legacy preserved, beyond the web and your own minds –
But I doubt it will last too long even there.

Alan Tate’s “Ode to the Confederate Dead”

The Gray and the gray. “Confederate veteran reunion, Washington, 1917”

Row after row with strict impunity
The headstones yield their names to the element,
The wind whirrs without recollection;
In the riven troughs the splayed leaves
Pile up, of nature the casual sacrament
To the seasonal eternity of death;
Then driven by the fierce scrutiny
Of heaven to their election in the vast breath,
They sough the rumour of mortality.

Autumn is desolation in the plot
Of a thousand acres where these memories grow
From the inexhaustible bodies that are not
Dead, but feed the grass row after rich row.
Think of the autumns that have come and gone!–
Ambitious November with the humors of the year,
With a particular zeal for every slab,
Staining the uncomfortable angels that rot
On the slabs, a wing chipped here, an arm there:
The brute curiosity of an angel’s stare
Turns you, like them, to stone,
Transforms the heaving air
Till plunged to a heavier world below
You shift your sea-space blindly
Heaving, turning like the blind crab.

Over 3,000 millionaires have fled Chicago in recent months. This is the largest outflow of wealthy people from any US city right now. It’s also one of the largest outflows of wealthy people in the world. But it’s not just millionaires. Every five minutes someone leaves Illinois. The people who leave are generally better educated, more skilled, and earn more money than those who stay. Illinois is the most financially distressed state in the US. Every month, it spends $600 million more than it takes in. It’s now $15 billion behind on its bills and counting. Woodpile Report

After about nine months of intense peer conflict, attrition would grind the U.S. armed forces down to something resembling the military of a regional power. The Army, for example, would be armed primarily with infantry weapons with heavy firepower coming from gun trucks and a trickle of modern equipment acquired from struggling domestic production and whatever logisticians could scrounge up on the world market. This state of affairs arises because the U.S. government has not thought seriously about industrial mobilization. It is far easier to bask in warm memories of World War II than to face the harsh choices that mobilization preparation entails. — It Won’t Be World War II Again

The Google archipelago :   With traditional religion already washed from the brains of the young, we would now be swept by the new religion of the electronic mob. It could have no anchor. Words themselves would humpty-dumpty at a greatly accelerated pace. The great mass of the deracinated were, in a sense, passing outside time. Henceforth they would live only in the present, with no conception of the past; and too, no appreciation of the future. They would cease to feel responsible for the consequences of their acts.

For morality would be reduced to opinion, and opinion dictated by the electronic mob. The “winners” in the new political order could only be the purveyors of fashion; and fashion is on the Left. This has been so since the French Revolution. Style means Left; Right means outmoded.

The Theory of Diversity Explained – William M. Briggs Race or any of the fashionable victim statuses may and must be substituted for sex. Further, race doesn’t exist. This is why strict mandatory quotas based on race must be enforced, to teach people that race doesn’t exist. There are thus no differences among people based on race. Yet Diversity is our strength, so ensuring quotas based on race, which doesn’t exist, will make outcomes better, outcomes which must be the same, since there is no such thing as race, therefore there can’t be differences in performance among peoples of different races. This is why Diversity is our strength. [click to continue…]
