“After all I’ve seen, if someone wants to spend a lifetime they’ve only just started, writing computer software for a living, as a contractor or FTE, I would have to incorporate this into my advice if they come asking. You can get these jobs in red states, I’m told. . . for this reason or that reason, that has not been my chosen path. By default, you’ll be working in deep blue, one gig after another after another.

“And so before we get into data structures and algorithms, first get yourself accustomed to living in places governed by “leaders” who have neither the time nor inclination to admit to mistakes, nor to learn anything new. Get used to the signs of liberalism. Tents under bridges, needles and human feces on the ground, etc. Lots of tightly packed “income inequality,” together with loud opinionated people complaining about it. Get used to all that, first, then let’s talk about the bubble sort and the binary search trees. Also, get used to “middle of the road” types telling you to pay no attention to politics or liberals…while the politics and liberals are literally in your face, all of the time, whenever you’re not in the office coding.

“The blue-brains can’t answer simple questions about their own positions. “If recent policy changes are not responsible for high gas prices, then what is?” “If the unborn baby is not a baby, then what is it?” “How would this latest round of new gun laws have prevented that shooting?”

“They can’t answer these questions. They have no wish to do so. They just want to be popular…like in sixth grade.” == House of Eratosthenes

And now for extra credit something on children “scolding” adults:

When I see a mentally handicapped truant Swedish child scolding an international body of delegates and the delegates cheering for the scolding — at them — what I see is a room for mental health patients, filled to capacity plus one. Nobody of sound mind should cheer scolding at them. It tells me all the “civilized” nations of the world are maintaining a habit, without borders, of investing real authority and influence in mental midgets. I don’t know why all these supposedly advanced nations have all slipped off their rockers this way at the same time, and I don’t really care. It’s evidence that I can’t trust what authorities say, because the authorities by default are cuckoo. It really doesn’t help matters that the “facts” being dished out by the young Swedish mental patient are nonsense.

Something Inspired: The Shadow Band

In June of 2021, one of Portland’s Rapid Response Team’s cops was indicted for playing a little rough with an Antifa sally. The team decided to have a protest of their own and every member quit and went back to regular police work, leaving Portland without riot police. Put a Fork in Portland –

The two biggest revelations of “The Boys Behind the Curtain” at Twitter over the last couple of days has been the trolling of “Tweets” (employees of Twitter) by Project Veritas. In gathering its stealth videos of Tweets caught telling the truth Project Veritas used the time-honored technique of the “honey trap.”

In the world of espionage, a “honey trap” is an attractive female who teases and seduces the target of the mission through the promise or use of sex. Her, shall we say, “honey pot” makes a man “hongry.” After being stung several times by honey babes Twitter put out an internal memo warning its “hongry” Tweets to beware of such hetero-slanted     dating        get-laid-right-now apps like Tinder, Bumble, and Happn. Strangely for a company based in the gay Eden of San Franciso they did not include “Grindr” on their list.

What is “Grindr?” Well according to its own web site Home | Grindr is [all caps sic]  “THE WORLD’SLARGEST SOCIAL NETWORKING APP FOR GAY, BI, TRANS, AND QUEER PEOPLE.”  This is an especially, even embarrassingly, queer omission. Grindr exists on every gay phone in the world so that the LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ crowd is supplied everywhere with the vast number of essentially anonymous sexual partners they seem to need. Insert usual dickclaimer  “Far be it from me, etc.”

So instead of a “honey trap”, I guess we could substitute “honey stick.

It might have been a good idea for Twitter to have included Grindr in their “All Tweets” memo. Then they might have avoided this hot twink’s honey-sticking:

Twitter Executive Mocks Elon Musk for Believing Public can ‘Make Their Own Decision’ on Platform … ‘The Rest of Us Who Have Been Here Believe in Something that’s Good for the Planet, and Not Just to Give People Free Speech’

• Project Veritas published a new story on Tuesday night featuring footage of Twitter Lead Client Partner, Alex Martinez, discussing the company’s ideology, criticizing the acquisition of the company by Elon Musk and, at times, denigrating Musk for his expressed views on free speech.
• Martinez: “Right now, we don’t make profit. So, I’m going to say ideology, which is what led us into not being profitable.”
• Martinez on free speech: “The rest of us who have been here believe in something that’s good for the planet and not to give people free speech.”
• Martinez on censorship: “People don’t know how to make a rational decision if you don’t put out — correct things that are supposed to be out in the public, right?”
• Martinez on Musk: “Elon Musk as a person is whatever. I don’t, like, he’s a loony toon. He has, he has Asperger’s.”
• Martinez on Musk: “He has Asperger’s… So he’s special. We all know that. And That’s fine. So here, no wonder he’s going to say some f***ing crazy sh*t because he’s special.”

Last May, as he was hosting Saturday Night Live, Musk revealed that he was the first person to host the show with Asperger’s. In the video published on Tuesday, Martinez can be seen saying, “I’m like- you’re special needs! You’re literally special needs, literally though, you really are. So, I can’t even take what you’re saying seriously cause you’re special.”

Ironically enough, Martinez can also be seen in the footage discussing an internal company memo Twitter administrative staff sent in the aftermath of Project Veritas’ first part of the series.

“It’s [Project Veritas] like some group that’s just trying to out the employees,” Martinez says. “Like, they’re trying to go on dates with them, like this, and record them.”

The Ancien Régime**

The tumbrils creak and rumble on
Upon the road of Slate,
Retracing rutted Years of sand
Whose distance Storms debate.

Its passengers stand fixed as stone
While faces cheer from Snow.
The blade awaits its midday meal,
When Above becomes Below.

Innovations carved from clouds
Give despair and dance New measures.
The blade reflects its evening meal
When kings slake peasants’ pleasures.

Arrived at Hope they gaze towards mist
Where granite horses roam.
Their schedules as fixed as Dark.
Their future — White as bone.

The Head within the Basket sees
Vast Parliaments of Sky.
Its ears hear but the fading surf
Where the past gone Years reply. [continue reading…]

Strange Daze Digest Compressed

The Unceasing Cessna Hacienda • A stall at this height, with no airspace to recover before impact, would kill the pilot just as surely as a fall would kill the refueler. Nevertheless, the man tasked with refueling lowered the winch until workmen in the truck could reach out and attach the fuel line to its hook. He then raised it back up, inserted the line into the fuel port, and gave the signal to begin pumping. For three long minutes⁠⁠—and a distance of more than three miles⁠⁠—truck and plane were attached by a fragile, flammable umbilical cord until the belly tank was satiated. They then lowered the fuel line, and the Hacienda pulled up and away for another twelve hours of flight. If they were going to beat the record, they would need to refuel like this at least 92 more times.

Retribution is not vengeance, retribution is the price of moving forward.

Psyop MyAss


Doom Weaver — 12 days ago — “Any deception aims to either increase or decrease the level of uncertainty, or ambiguity, in the mind of the deception target. This ambiguity has the potential to compel the target to mistakenly perceive friendly motives, intentions, capabilities, and vulnerabilities thereby altering the target’s assessment.”
— FM 3-13.4, ARMY SUPPORT TO MILITARY DECEPTION.

Think of who this video is aimed at and who was meant to consume it. Think about their motivations.
This video glows, by the way. You’re guaranteed that these people hate you.”

This new Army recruitment video is a case study in psychological warfare Col. Chris Stangle, commander of 4th PSYOP Group, told Task & Purpose on Friday that the video was created in-house, both as a recruitment effort but also to literally show people what they can do — part of psychological operations is creating persuasive media.

Stangle said that the artist behind the video tailored it a bit after iconic horror film JAWS, where the filmmakers showed restraint in actually showing the shark. Instead, viewers knew it was lurking just below the surface.

“Drawing on this approach, we kind of sought to create a piece that doesn’t show what a PSYOP soldier does necessarily, because it’s so complicated and there’s so much about it — quite honestly. It’s just not incredibly sexy — but what it feels like to do our craft when we’re successful,” Stangle said. “And we think that kind of allows the audience to immerse into what our world is, and what our craft is.”

Look. The USA never did want a large standing army, and that goes back to that hair-muss the colonies got into with the greatest army on planet Erf: the Brits. You might notice that the next really, really big war was fought by irregulars or militia (national guard, essentially) – the Civil War. Enter the 20th century and the standing army got turgid with WWI, went back to small (too small by rebound), and then got BIG in WWII, and stayed relatively large during the follow-on event known as the Cold War. But, the big standing army is not our nation’s ethos (as founded).

However, for some reason, the army (and the other lil services) have enjoyed unprecedented social support among the people. This is because it has been drawn, primarily, from the people and the soldiers are young and sincere, for the most part. They do things no man should be asked to do, in war or in peace. They come out of the service and into the community as the obvious best and brightest, and you know that’s true. I’d rather talk with, work beside, or do just about anything with an army veteran than with a futhr-muckin Harvard graduate with a law degree. Or, God forbid, a politician.

So, that honeymoon is ending before our eyes. We survived, somewhat, the Pentagon Papers era. Nixon. Korea. ‘Nam. Iraq I and II. We have come this far with our beloved armed forces, even though the in-laws didn’t like them, and now that shit is ending. Milley walked across that street (Pennsylvania Ave?) to the church with Trump, and then somebody got to him and stuck a pair of pliers up his ass to get to his undescended huevos, and Bob’s yer gay uncle, the armed forces began a fast slide into hell.

The only thing weaker, now, is the paper tiger army the Russians are employing in that worse-than-Vietnam debacle in the Ukraine. God the ass-kicking they are receiving is epic. It’s as if God himself sees our plight in the formerly free world, and has smitten our adversaries. It’s a Biblical beat-down and is an exact parallel to the Finland Winter War of ’39-40, except much bigger and high-tech. My only complaint is that it lacks the elegance of the ski troops in Finland part.

I pray daily that the National Guard in the US has some come-to-Jesus experiences, and does its cool thing where they tell the feds to stick it up their collective asses when they get stupid orders. I expect, and this is my prediction, that the Biden clown party will try to shaft the NG because they know they aren’t bolted to the ground quite the same way the army is.

Oh, I also wanted to say that trans/critical/and vaxed shit is still not enough to wreck the men of the US Army. It’ll take more. But, the top-down is rotting and that is ultimately a death blow given certain circumstances. IOW, the army could divide and lose in even the smallest battles. Afghanistan Kabul airport was just a test run for the Fuckery they plan for your once-powerful and beloved military. So, expect more shafting of the active-duty military.

What else? Expect the US veteran to go overnight from being a smelly, tripwire but respected and somewhat socially protected class to being (I don’t even want to say what they’re going to make us into socially).

Anyway, just watch out. The military and the veterans are one of the greatest bulwarks against the reset class – which paints a huge target on their backs. It’s okay, though. After we attrit and shit down the necks of this generation of tyrants, we’ll pour some beers, and make our Valhallan beds and then fade away.

Because this, gentle people, is as far as I go. I am not a tripwire vet; I am a command detonation vet.

Out here.
