Strange Daze


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.

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.


If youth knew. If age could.

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.

    If you watch the full George Floyd video you will notice that Big George is in the process of dying even as the police begin to talk to him. Continue to watch and it grows worse. As they try to put him in the police car he alternates between crazy actions and collapsing. After he is in the back seat he begins to say “I can’t breathe”. This is the overdose killing him as we watch. The cop recognizes it and takes Big George out and calls for medics. But by now Big George is clearly in distress and intent on harming himself so must be held down to prevent that. The cop uses a authorized method; place the suspect on his belly and put a knee on his neck. Try it, or more correctly have someone do that to you. It doesn’t choke you but in conjunction with having your hands cuffed behind your back it makes it easier for the cop to control you and almost impossible for the perp to get up. Sadly Big George died in spite of the officers and the medics best efforts. He overdosed and the consequences of his actions are a bitch. Sad for everyone involved.

    At some point the media WILL be held responsible for it’s criminal behavior.

    “At some point the media WILL be held responsible for it’s criminal behavior.”

    When? Or better yet, how soon? Look at what the .gov thugs are getting away with and very few people even question the obvious takeover of the USA by communism.

    I look at that picture of a flamethrower operator advancing on the beach at Iwo Jima and my only thought was, “How long did that guy live? Did he even survive the first hour on Iwo, let alone the first day?”

    And my only conclusion is that he didn’t. He is burdened with a cumbersome weapon that scares his enemy to death. Every Japanese rifleman within a quarter mile of him is trying to kill him

    Terry sed: “…very few people even question the obvious…”
    Many more DO question the criminality and almost all come to the same conclusion, that there is little to nothing any of us can do about it. It is too big. So we bide our time, live our lives the best we can, and wait.

    We wait for the inevitable day when it all comes down, unable to support itself any longer, and we stay out of it’s way as it stumbles and falls. When that day of leveling occurs there will be accounting for past behavior everywhere. I’m glad I live on the side of honesty.

    My heart is broken for that five year old boy and his family. Are the reporters and journalists that know this story and don’t emphasize it unmoved by the evil? Ugh.

    It’s not over. When the 4 cops walk, the “peaceful protests” begin anew.

    Americans have known what was in the works for a long time; they either didn’t pay attention to it, didn’t believe it, or didn’t care. We are paying the price now, and we -not them -will have to fight it.

    “The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of “liberalism” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation,
    without knowing what happened.” —Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Presidential candidate, 1948
    “The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the
    scenes.” –Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, 1952
    Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.”
    — RICHARD SALANT, former President of CBS News

    Re: that poor little 5 year-old executed by that negroid creature (just take a gander at his mug-shot. It’s widely available. Dunno why it was omitted in this post. It shouldn’t have been.)
