Finally, there is just no getting around the fact that if a white man walked up to his black neighbor’s five year old child and executed him in broad daylight, it would be massively huge news. You know it. I know it. We all know it. Stop playing dumb, you ridiculous clowns.

The DiploMad 2.0: The Fake “Picks” The Phony All that silly identity politics aside, Joe Biden has picked–had picked for him–the person who, during the primary campaign, accused him of being in league with racists, and of being a sexual predator–she “believed” his female accusers. Is Joe even aware of that? The world wonders.
I assumed this was a joke, but it’s real: if you Google “socialism and racism,” the top result you’re offered will be “capitalism and racism.” Big Tech gets more openly ideological by the day. And weird that one of the world’s most profitable companies hates capitalism so much. pic.twitter.com/vhSqflY74g

This is the first presidential election in which voters won’t know if they actually voted, who REALLY is the Democratic candidate for President, when the votes might be counted, whether China or Russia interfered the most, or how accurate the count is. But otherwise, terrific.

MOTUS A.D.: Team Jamala: You Know the Thing It’s Team Jamala! So far the Jamala presidential platform includes open borders, Medicare for all, forgiveness of student loans, the Green New Deal, taking a knee and…federally mandated face masks. No exceptions: from New York City (density 26,400/sq. mile) to Wrangell, Alaska (density 0.9 /sq. mile) and everywhere in between.
From World Capital to Battleground A Washington establishment unable to reboot itself needs an external force, ideally the voters, to press “reset.” If the voters fail, then reality will grow a finger and push the reset button some other way. With both sides seeking to implement revolutionary agendas on the backs of slim and evanescent majorities, neither side has the ability to overpower the other by main strength, so resolution is likely to hinge on external events that will give either side the decisive advantage. Contingent events likely to accelerate a reboot include but are not limited to: 1) the course of the pandemic as modified by the availability (or non-availability) of an effective vaccine or the emergence (not impossible) of yet another pathogen; 2) an economic or financial crash of some nation or region weakened by the virus shutdown; 3) some military confrontation in the Middle East, the Taiwan Straits, the South China Sea or North Asia; 4) a health episode involving the president of the U.S. after 2020.
George Floyd: The Big Lie – The first thing I noticed upon viewing the footage—and this will sound harsh, but hey, it’s a harsh video—was how utterly crazed and primitive Floyd looked. I’m talking Mesozoic Era primitive. He looks like a terrified black brontosaurus who’s suddenly been confronted by the furious husband of the female dinosaur he’s been banging on the side.
Millenarian Mobs – Today, as in the Middle Ages, the mobs, the fires, and desecrations, the ever-present focus on “the Jews!” have nothing to do with any truth or with the details of any particular event or accusation. What sense does it make for a mob in Brussels, Belgium, to tear down a statue of Julius Caesar in protest against four U.S. policemen’s killing of a black man whom they were arresting? Or for that matter, for a mob in Philadelphia to deface a monument to an unknown soldier of the Revolutionary War of 1776, or for Bostonians to organize the removal of a statue of Abraham Lincoln? Alas, the millennialists, and their mob do not need specific grievances against specific targets. The civilization itself is the only real target; its existence and the mob’s lack of complete mastery over it are the only grievances that really matter. They need know only that the civilization they are attacking has become vulnerable, undefended, and may be safely treated with contempt. If we do not share that contempt, history shows we have no choice but to treat the millennialist mob as the enemies they are.
The Case for Trump – All of these trends, changes, policies, and initiatives, and many others—however incomplete—would be reversed in the event of a Trump loss. The ruling class would hail the president’s defeat as a historic repudiation of his (allegedly) “racist and xenophobic” vision, etc., as a vindication of every charge and complaint they’ve made against him and his supporters since Day 1. Their goal would be to erase the last four years and the 2016 election as if they never happened. If think-tank conservatives want above all to get into a DeLorean and go back to 1985, the ruling class wants to cram America into a Prius and force us back to 2015. And then resume the trajectory the country had been on back then, i.e., the road to woke managerial tyranny.
