Strange Daze : ǝzɒꓷ ǝϱnɒɿɈƧ

The Milky Way over a lightning storm in Ormond Beach, FL

Shadows Within Shadows | Kunstler More likely, that dollar number and the weaponry talk are fantasies intended to propitiate the roughly thirty percent of Americans who, pollsters report, are avid for an apocalyptic nuclear showdown with Russia. Thirty percent, by the way, is the estimate by psychologists of any given population susceptible to mass formation psychosis — the transfiguration of anxiety-and-anomie-driven persons from something like harmless grasshoppers into ravaging human locusts.

That group derangement phenomenon has been managed artfully by America’s Deep State in recent years starting with the Russia Collusion hoax against the alleged monsterdom of Mr. Trump, then shifted to the frenzy around Covid-19 virus, with all its sickening rituals of obedience and submission, and now segued seamlessly to the melodrama of Vladimir Putin cast as King Kong manhandling Fay Wray as personified by Ukraine.

Readers assure me that Russia is “getting its ass kicked” in that sore-beset, yawning expanse of wheat and mud that has been, one way or another, a domain of Russia longer than the USA has been a nation — except the past thirty-odd years when it has been a playground for homegrown oligarch-looters, US State Department and CIA gamesters, and grift-seeking rogues such as Mr. R. Hunter Biden and the relatives of John Kerry and Nancy Pelosi.

America’s gift of javelin missiles by former president Trump has reportedly taken a heavy toll on Russian tanks and helicopters, confounding their advance. That is hardly the whole story. The Russians have surrounded the hardiest units of Ukraine’s army in the contested Donbass region. These include the alleged neo-Nazi Azov brigades dug-in around Luhansk and Donetsk for eight years, and busy all that time shelling the Russian-speaking population there with American-supplied munitions. Those Azov brigades now face the choice of surrender or annihilation. They have no contact with whatever remains of the Ukrainian military command.

The greatest part of mankind have no other reason for their opinions than that they are in fashion. — Samuel Johnson

Dreamachine, the psychedelic contraption hoping to blow British minds |

These are people who think they’re clever enough to deal with powerful foreign countries run by sane people. They’re not, and those foreign powers have taken note of that fact. The kind of Americans the world fears or respects have been put out of government and military leadership and replaced by a menagerie of nursing home patients, human resources ladies, affirmative action hires, sexual degenerates, and obese four-star generals angling for board seats on the next Theranos start-up. The day of reckoning has arrived. Leaders like Putin, Xi, and Mohammed bin Salman are no longer amenable to being pushed around and morally browbeaten by the circus freaks that constitute the United States Government.

The Washington cabal has long treated Ukraine as their own personal playground. From Hunter Biden’s adventures with Burisma to U.S.-funded bioweapons labs to Ukraine’s status as the top source country for Clinton Foundation donations and child sex slaves, the place is a base for the most corrupt of the Western elite. They don’t want to let it go, which is partly the reason they’ve propagandized the entire Western world into a frenzied mania over a military operation that has thus far avoided the civilian population to a far greater extent than NATO’s past operations in Libya and Yugoslavia.

Leftism is wish fullfilment. — Whittle

Dumbshit Russians? It blows my mind that more than one-third of the US population are willing to endure nuclear armageddon for the utterly corrupt, nazi-dominated Washington puppet state of Ukraine. Americans have no interest whatsoever in Ukraine, and Ukrainians are an insignificant percentage of the US population.  The dumbshit Americans who are willing to go to nuclear war for Ukraine are the dumbshits who sit in front of CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, listen to NPR, read the NY Times and Washington Post.  These are people who are brainwashed and live in a false reality created for them by official narratives that serve only the narrow interests of the ruling elite. Most of the dumbshits wouldn’t die for their spouse, parents, or children.  But they are so programmed by the whore media that they are willing to die so Ukraine can shell Donbass Russians in their villages and cities.  Really, this is stupidity beyond imagination.

Abandoned America: Dismantling the Dream | 

Putin is NOT crazy and the Russian invasion is NOT failing, writes military analyst BILL ROGGIO\ What matters more than a handful of setbacks is that Russian forces have pushed 70 miles into contested terrain in less than a week and are on the outskirts of the capital. This is not a sign of a disorganized, poorly assembled, and failed offensive.

If you look around D.C. you see the same psychological projection of inner rot every time one of these war mongers gets in front of a camera to manufacture consent. They are also fearful of the shame of exposure which drives them to madness like Lindsey displays now on a nearly daily basis. This push for regime change in Russia, however, begs a very important question: “Why have they gone this far? Why do they think they can get regime change when Putin has 70 % support?”

But real diversity is the last thing this new dispensation will tolerate. Instead, like all colonising systems in all times and places, it is committed to destroying it wherever it is found. The rising system of universal values and universal control cannot tolerate genuine cultural diversity anymore than its elites can tolerate dissent from reactionaries, anarchists or anyone in between. All must be homogenised, from streetscapes to language to opinions. Everything must go: nations, local economies, local communities, attachment to the past, dreams of a human future. All the Olds must burn so that something new can be born: something we can all feel rising around us, even as we bicker or squabble or turn our faces away, hoping we will be rescued from what is surely approaching. — Paul Kingsnorth, “Saturn’s Children”

Those that brave the waters {Shell at -$28.50 to Brent} will get their {Russian} oil at a steep discount, those that don’t will pay through the nose, further accelerating the decline of those economies as inflation spirals out of control and the people put the blame, not on Putin, but on the people in charge. Moreover, Russia has kept the gas flows going to ensure that money keeps flowing into the country to finance further expansion of its gold reserves. And that’s the key, gold. Russia has oil it pulls out of the ground for >$10 per barrel

World’s largest potato denied title because it’s not actually a potato at all “Doug,” what was believed to be the world’s largest potato, sits on a kitchen bench of the home of Colin and Donna Craig-Brown near Hamilton, New Zealand on Aug. 29, 2021. The Craig-Brown’s have had their dreams turned to mash after Guinness wrote to say that scientific testing had shown it wasn’t, in fact, a potato after all, but a tuber of a type of gourd.

Twitter suspends Babylon Bee over Rachel Levine ‘Man of the Year’ title Twitter locked the account of a right-leaning parody site, The Babylon Bee, after it awarded Rachel Levine, the transgender Biden administration official, the title of  “man of the year.” The Babylon Bee story was a reaction to USA Today’s naming of Levine, who is US assistant secretary for health for the US Department of Health and Human Services, as one of its “women of the year” last week.

    Mark Dice has delivered a potent analysis of how surreal the optics have become for what constitutes a family. The nuclear family, i.e., one man, one woman and their children is being vaporized by very putrid, wealthy narcissists while the people with a microphone and an audience dare not criticize, nor even say there’s anything up with this. Strange Daze, indeed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73fTUFZ9NU0

    Very interesting and wide-ranging interview with polymath Steve Hsu. Hat tip to commenter at the other bomb everyone until they’re good doggies place where the link will rapidly disappear amidst billowing clouds of copeium pipe smoke.

    The article is mainly about China and looks at tech and governance. A bit at the end about his involvement in genetic research.


    Hsu is an interesting fellow. Vox Day level genius who has actually done important work with his high IQ gift and doesn’t go around insulting everyone.

    Hopefully I don’t need to point out that Hsu’s immediate family background is Taiwanese American. I mean all armchair geostrategists will immediately grok that he wasn’t born a Mainlander given the Wade-Giles (as opposed to Pinyin) transliteration of his surname.

    Amusing, isn’t that exactly what “ They” would like us to believe. The harder they try, the harder we press onward. Those fuckers will never beat me, my people.

    What’s amusing is,,,,, we have zero need for “ Them”,,,,, they can’t go on without us. “ Their “ a self licking lollipop!

    I use to pray for their souls, now when I discover their graves I intend to Piss on their graves.

    Previously, I told you to stop looking at Vietnam for your doctrinal understanding of war. But, I beg you to see this analogy. America won every major battle in Vietnam, militarily. A hundred percent military success…and then we lost. More or less. The North Vietnamese waited us out, we left with empty promises, and they rode into Saigon like bosses. We won our way to defeat.

    Russia is winning in Ukraine, in the poorest possible manner. Take Ukraine (please). You can support Ukraine – you can love Ukraine, or you can hate it or you can be totally neutral about Ukraine. It doesn’t matter a bit. Ukraine is a road apple. A border. Russia has shown the world its shitty military craft, and meanwhile NATO has mounted a remarkable defense of Europe against any potential Russian fuckery. Thanks…to…Trump. Trump unfukt Europe by demanding and calling out the laxness in Europe’s defenses. The refinement of NATO at this time began with Trump – believe it. NATO stands taller than ever versus Russia, and this is Putin’s outcome of his war. He may be gone soon; perhaps they’ll disappear him and he’ll be discovered folded up in a suitcase somewhere.

    I’m sorry to tell you that, you who love Mother Russia. Eat the red pill, my friends. In my estimation, but I’m not sure of this idea yet…I’m considering it and testing it…the powers that be are shaken by how easily Russia has been handled by men with guns in the field of battle. I think China has taken notice, and I think whoever the fuhk runs the USA has noticed. If you sit in a political seat of power, you are on notice.

    “This push for regime change in Russia, however, begs a very important question: “Why have they gone this far? Why do they think they can get regime change when Putin has 70 % support?”….”

    Because they accomplished regime change against Trump, who had 70% support?

    President Franklin Roosevelt said there are no accidents in politics. If it happens it was planned that way. It’s obvious that this compromised corrupted mental cripple named Joe was placed in the White House whether you believe in a stolen election or not. Now it is beginning to appear that his position is not safe… with the laptop from Hell receiving a lot of attention. That’s no accident either, except for the drug fiend forgetting to retrieve it from repairs. I’m about half way through this interview with a man who has been deep inside the laptop. Mighty interesting stuff here.

    That Potato, many years ago I escorted a gun shot survivor into the ER, as i passed bye a curtained ER booth, I saw a mass very similar on a guys back. I actually stepped back to confirm what I’d seen.

    My god, this poor slob. Had a growth as big as that potato, if not bigger on his upper back, right over his spine. As I gawked, the gent turns sees me looking, he turned red in shame. I muttered brother good luck to you, left a business card on his side table, you ever need help call the number on the bottom it’s my personal number.

    Bad day, never saw him ever again, AND my gun shot Victim didn’t make it. Drs cracked his sternum worked their asses off to save this guy.

    The wound was accidental, he dropped his pistol, landed on the hammer forcing a discharge. Right in front of his new wife. What a shit show.
