Strange Daze

Ginsburg undergoes nonsurgical procedure, due for hospital release by end of week  Yeah, right.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Quietly Replaced With Cardboard Cutout “No one has noticed so far,” said Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. “We’re hoping to keep Ruth ‘Paper’ Ginsburg, as we affectionately refer to her, on the Supreme Court bench until a Democrat is elected president.”

“Once the needle goes in, it never comes out:” Regarding Communism and Communists: If History proves anything it proves that 1.) Communism does not work, and 2.) You cannot cure Communists, you can only kill them.

Sodomy is back on in (the appropriately nicknamed) Sodom-on-Sea. Yes, the city’s leaders say “Restrictions Relaxed for Gay Bathhouses, Sex Venues“. Spreading COVID via glory holes is not a worry anymore, not in San Francisco. (Spreading HIV is no longer seen as entirely undesirable.) This is not a joke about glory holes. The Canadian government, led perhaps by a past-practitioner of the sport, authorized glory holes as a way to “that [will] allow for sexual contact but prevent close face-to-face contact.” To avoid spreading COVID. You can’t get into to see granny on her 103rd birthday—as a man running a small shop told me about his experience with this aged relative—but at least you can sodomize a man through a hole in the wall.

Hystericalectomy: Yes, “Trans” People Are Crazy – William M. Briggs  Gaze upon this headline from a story by the so-called Friendly Atheist. “Transgender Man Sues Catholic Hospital for Canceling His Hysterectomy.” What should be noted is that the headline is not this (don’t skim, but read, this): Man Sues Catholic Hospital for Canceling His Hysterectomy. Let’s suppose the headline was this second version. What now jumps into all minds is that the man seeking the hysterectomy is crazy, and the hospital, Catholic or not, is sane.

The American academy is bonkers and has reared monsters so that we now have a “black liberation movement” staffed almost entirely by college-educated white women (including a remarkable number of angry trans-women) from the over-undergraduated permanent-varsity Class of Whenever. We are assured that out in “the real world” there is a soi-disant “silent majority” whose voices will resound around the world on November 3rd. For what it’s worth, I don’t believe in the existence of this “silent majority”, and a political party that has won the popular vote only once in the last thirty years (2004) ought to be chary about over-investing in it.

The people lack virtue – It’s not surprising that now the Founders’ names are being tarnished and their statues toppled. It takes a group of people without virtue to do it, and a larger group without virtue to allow it. The irony is that these same people think of themselves as the most virtuous of all.

George Washington said: “Virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government,”[6] and “Human rights can only be assured among a virtuous people.”[7]

Benjamin Franklin said: “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom.” [8]

James Madison stated: “To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical [imaginary] idea.”

Thomas Jefferson wrote, “No government can continue good but under the control of the people; and … their minds are to be informed by education what is right and what wrong; to be encouraged in habits of virtue and to be deterred from those of vice … These are the inculcations necessary to render the people a sure basis for the structure and order of government.”

Samuel Adams said: “Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt. He therefore is the truest friend of the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue.”

Patrick Henry stated that: “A vitiated [impure] state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom.”

John Adams stated: “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

If you are a white person in a place like Seattle, what are your options? If you abide by the law, you have your property destroyed and possibly your life threatened. People are being shot in their cars now as they try to go about their business. Gun sales are booming, but the people buying the guns imagine themselves defending their life and property within a system of laws. What happens when they realize there is no system of laws?

Democrats Warn Hydroxychloroquine May Save Your Life And Then You’d Have To Keep Living In A Reality Where Trump Is Still President

Andrew Sullivan, the man who did more than anyone to overturn the millennia-old definition of marriage, discovered nevertheless that he was insufficiently woke for his colleagues at New York magazine, and so got canceled. Bari Weiss, a bisexual Jewess, found that the former did not compensate for the latter at a New York Times whose young staffers are openly sneering of Jews, and so she self-canceled. Barbara Kay at my old home The National Post has just done something similar, exhausted by the battle to say things that offend against the insipid yet totalitarian pieties. Newspapers have turned into colleges. Boardrooms have turned into colleges. Graceless corporate pseudo-macho American sports have turned into colleges.

Voting intentions : One never meets a confessed Trump voter from ’16, who is not pathologically eager to do it again. Whereas, it is easy to meet “liberals” who have become “woke” in reverse. They are tired of being regulated by the self-appointed thought police. They don’t even suck up to Islamists any more. They have shockingly lost interest in Climate Change. So what are the polls now saying? Nothing that could possibly interest an intelligent person.

Desperate CDC Now Just Claiming Wearing A Mask Will Make You Rich And Famous Beyond Wildest Dreams   “What we’re seeing is that consistently wearing an N95 respirator or cloth mask dramatically increases the wearer’s net worth and, sure, wins them the kind of widespread acclaim enjoyed by celebrities like George Clooney, Beyoncé, and Angelina Jolie,” said CDC director Robert Redfield, who argued that the simple act of covering one’s face would also make that individual extremely strong, boost their cognitive ability tenfold, improve their singing voice, and (Why not?)”increase their sexual potency.

After America’s pushback to Beijing in 2017 — leveling tariffs on key Chinese industries and warning China to cease copyright and patent infringement — exposed Chinese mercantilism to the world, few were surprised in 2020 by China’s chronic lying, subversion of transnational organizations, and laxity in allowing its Wuhan virus to infect the world. Certainly, once China calibrates the full damage done to the U.S. economy by the coronavirus and the baleful effects of the subsequent lockdown on American social equilibrium, we should prepare for the chance of episodic appearances of more SARS-CoV-2-like viral “accidents.” Beijing may soon not so subtly warn the U.S. that in a matter of weeks it could suffer more economic and social devastation from an “inadvertent” release of a “new” virus from a Wuhan wet market, lab, or wayward pig or bat.

    Nothing will ever be normal until a whole bunch of unnormal things are eliminated.
    Mostly defective people.

  • Gnawbone Jack July 30, 2020, 4:14 AM

    I don’t believe there is any “normal” that remains. Most of those wearing masks around here are like Dorothy clicking her red shoes repeating the mantra, “There’s no place like home…” Wake up America!

    Re; Seattle-
    It seems to me that when Police Chief Carmen Best sent out the letter to Seattle residents stating that the police can not protect them, she effectively has authorizes citizens to do what is necessary to defend life and property. Of course, that would not be her intent but it is the logical conclusion.

    Additionally, I would argue that Seattle residents should stop paying their property taxes. Given the fact that the schools are closed and the police won’t protect them, why should they?

    Totally agree with Ghost. It is up to the people to deal with this shit, since the .gov refuses to do it. America – it’s time to begin eliminating the abnormal.

    I would redefine it thus: “Virtue is righteousness made habitual.”

    If the people do not do something, and quite soon the left will, and it may be very, very dramatic. Not much is currently working in favor of these leftist wack jobs from P-losi down to the goons rioting.

    If President Trump asks for real help, the people currently sitting on their front porches will be a dire threat to the leftists everywhere. Everywhere. The cops have been neutralized. The people are now the police. The people are now the school teachers, again.

    Cancel the tax collector. Sharpen your axe’s.

    there are members of the gay community that purposely&knowingly infect each other.

    the HIV cocktail keeps it non-lethal, and the tab for the expensive drugs is pretty much covered these days.

    I’d say they’re right back into it, but really, they never stopped.

    “Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our constitution as a whale goes through a net.” Gallantry. Interesting. That generation kept a sharp rein on reality. Adams himself wrote in his diary in 1775 that he had a scofflaw debtor client who was ectatic that the British had closed the courts in the recent troubles. Adams was terrified that everything they had been working for would be subsumed by creatures such as this.

    “What change of circumstances time, and a fuller population of our country may produce requires a prophetic spirit to declare, which makes no part of my pretensions.”–Madison

    We who keep the belief in the America that worked and can still be made to work are being pretentious, and left unprepared.

    I just spent two days in Mexico. Black lives didn’t matter, no one was lobbing fireworks at federal officers, and it was full of very hardworking people. The only two beggars I saw were at the entrance to the border station going back north, jingling their cups at me. I declined to contribute as they were foam cups, which are bad for Gaia.

    What do you call a shotgun that has no stock, just a grip and a place to hold it under the barrel? I really don’t know, but the guy who was securing the other guy working on the only US ATM in town had one, and a good sized pistol besides. He didn’t snarl at me when I paused two feet away to put my purchases in my backpack, but he was quite alert. I wouldn’t have wanted to screw with him. That shotgun had the bluing worn off from long handling, and he was definitely ready to use it that day.

    In the mornings there was a parade past my hotel of cars in line to cross the border. Many have US plates, as many of the occupants are actually US citizens. There were vendors selling tamales, corn bread, coffee and other drinks, as well as various stuff, to the drivers. You’ve seen those ice cream vendors with a cooler mounted to the front of a bike? I saw a street taco vendor with a motorcycle welded to his taco stand.

    On my way to the border leaving, I bought some colorful metal insects for my garden. Business is very slow for these folks in the summer and Covid made it worse. I probably paid at least double too much, but I didn’t want to waste time, and I wasn’t in a haggling mood. The stand owner thanked me, telling me I made his day. His father elbowed him and said I made their week. All for $50 bucks, huh?

  • Auntie Analogue July 30, 2020, 11:46 AM

    My dear James Wilson, I should think that John Adams used “gallantry” in its alternative meaning of “amorous attention or pursuit” – the behavior of a Lothario, a Casanova.

    Mr. Scott,
    I have spent a fair amount of time in a handful of third world countries including most of two years in the Philippines. Yes, people are hard working because if you don’t work, you don’t eat. There are no gubmint stimulus checks handed out because you had a bad day and cannot make your ski boat payment. These limp wristed protesting pansies here have no idea how unjust and tough the world really is. In the PI the ice cream a street vendor sells is called “dirty ice cream”. Ask any Filipino here and they will laugh and acknowledge such. I have too purchased items from vendors and certainly paid too much. Good for them. Out in the province of Batangas, I bought some really cool looking large claw bladed knives that field workers use for cutting rice, for maybe $3-4 each. I gave them to my friends back here and kept one for myself. I have it hung on the wall. In Vietnam I bought some small ornately carved wood boxes with mother of pearl inlay and felt lining that held a fresh deck of cards. About $2 each without barter. I wondered later how such a trinket could even be brought to market for such a small price. Also in the PI I went to the basement of a shopping mall where there were 100 or more stalls, all selling pearls. Most if not all of the pearl merchants were Muslim and after they made the first sale of the day, they would take the pesos given to them and wipe it over their remaining merchandise for luck. I was fortunate to hunt in South Africa in 2002. There were a handful of men and one woman that did all the work around the camp. One hard working young man wore the same worn out and torn shirt for five days in a row. The PH that guided my adventure told me the workers got paid about a dollar a day and got some chow. The day before I left, I gave Torn-Shirt-Dude one of my three button polo shirts. The following day we were driving out and when we reached the highway heading back to Johannesburg, there was the dude with the new shirt. He walked the half mile to the road just to wave bye to me. Huge smile on his face. Well that is more than enough palaver.

    The account of Mike Adams death breaks my heart. “Fangs Out and Full Speed” is doubly indicated.

    I know we cannot speak negatively anyone from Ginsberg’s group. However, I have always felt she was a fraud from the beginning. A long time ago–when she was being questioned by Congressional committees she had something in her ear. When a question was asked she would hold her finger to her ear and wait before she gave her answer. I have always felt she was being fed information from a source outside of the room. Given today’s common technologies it would be good to get those videos and take a look again. If it was just a question of not hearing she would ask for a repeat, or just give an answer. I think she was using technology that was already available–just not in common usage at that time–it is now.

    “once the needle goes in”

    the man who wrote that was in england very soon after 9/11. out to eat with a smalll group, one of them bad-mouthed the US in his presence so he stood up and knocked the guy on his can. compounding his reaction was he was also a friend of pat brown, FDNY.
