Amos 5 KJV – Hear ye this word which I take up – 
14 Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the Lord, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken.
15 Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the Lord God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.
16 Therefore the Lord, the God of hosts, the Lord, saith thus; Wailing shall be in all streets; and they shall say in all the highways, Alas! alas! and they shall call the husbandman to mourning, and such as are skilful of lamentation to wailing.
17 And in all vineyards shall be wailing: for I will pass through thee, saith the Lord.
18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! to what end is it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light.
19 As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.
20 Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?
21 I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.
22 Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.
23 Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.
24 But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.
25 Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?
26 But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.
27 Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the Lord, whose name is The God of hosts.

“If everything around you seems dark, look again, you may be the light.” – Rumi

Facebook’s Ban on News in Australia Is Waking People Up The saying  “if you’re not paying for it then you’re the product” is a popular explanation for why some Internet services, like the Google apps, Facebook, Twitter, etc., let users join them for”free” The situation is better understood when restated as “the users supply the content and the giant Internet platforms monetize it.”

Why didn’t more professors oppose the Gramscian march or at least stick up for free speech? – The New Neo   The takeover of the academy by the left started a long time ago. I won’t quibble over when, but suffice to say it has been many decades. So there’s been a selection factor over the years as well, a factor that’s only increased over time. At a certain point it became well-nigh impossible for a new hire who didn’t toe the party line to be given a job in the first place. Therefore the number of professors on the other side (or potentially on the other side), has became smaller and smaller over time.

Toxic wokeness taints a campus and causes liberal staffer to resign “As it turned out, my experience in the library was just the beginning. In my new position, I was told on multiple occasions that discussing my personal thoughts and feelings about my skin color is a requirement of my job. I endured racially hostile comments and was expected to participate in racially prejudicial behavior as a continued condition of my employment. I endured meetings in which another staff member violently banged his fist on the table, chanting, ‘Rich, white women! Rich, white women!’ in reference to Smith alumnae. ”

The Rotten Fruit of Friendship Evangelism Jesus is not looking for more “friends.”  He is looking for soldiers. œLet us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 

Man up. Hate sin.  Hate evil.  Expose the unfruitful works of darkness.  Duty calls.

”There’s a good reason for the media hating me. And once I came to grips with that fact, that there’s a reason they should hate me, then it makes sense. One of the toughest things I had to do was learn to psychologically accept the fact that being hated was a sign of success.  Most people aren’t raised to be hated. We’re all raised to be loved. We want to be loved. We’re told to do things to be loved and appreciated and liked. We’re raised, don’t offend anybody, be nice. Everybody wants total acceptance. Everybody wants respect. Everybody wants to be loved, and so when you learn that what you do is going to engender hatred you have to learn to accept that as a sign of success. That was a tough psychological thing for me.” — Rush Limbaugh

The Whole World Will One Day Be Like Hollywood: Hollywood is not in the business of making art. They are not even in the business of making money anymore. Rather, they are in the business of indoctrination. Yes, it is a “conspiracy”. Not a conspiracy theory, but conspiracy reality. Their job is to make the public believe that leftist ideals (or in some cases globalist ideals) are the prevailing ideals. If you see the same lies everyday in every manufactured depiction of life, you might start to think that your more rational, traditional and grounded views are in the minority. You might begin to self censor for fear of being ridiculed. You might even join the other side just to avoid being attacked.

Raconteur Report: Sorry, But Just…No You won’t have anesthesia. You won’t have analgesia, except moonshine or weed, in all likelihood. So without those two things, you won’t have surgery of any type other than “Civil War v1.0”-type. Complete with bone saws, sepsis, and spurting arteries after amputations.

You won’t have cardiac code drugs. Nor supplemental oxygen in metric f**ktons. (A re-purposed O2 concentrator running up to 6 lpm? Maybe. Putting people on ventilators at 15-100 lpm? NFW. Not happening.) So you don’t need protected airways, defibrillators, ventilators (large nor portable version), nor any other such nonsense. Forget CPR. Waste of time and energy.

D’ya know what you call a cardiologist or internal medicine specialist without a hospital around him, 98% of the time?


Family of gunman that opened fire in gun store claims he was murdered The gunman, later identified as 27-year-old Joshua Jamal Williams, murdered a store employee and a customer before he was fatally shot by no less than seven armed customers and store employees.

Americans Need to Find Their Spine and Fortitude to Stand Up and Fight. It’s Time We Cut This Evil Out From Our Society. | If you think you are going to vote these bastards out next go round then we’ve already lost. We need to start thinking about actually fighting for Freedom. Remember these people want us dead. This is a fight to the death and right now we’re pretty much letting them know we’re not even in the fight. Hell we can’t even convince people to quit wearing a face diaper. We need to quit playing by the rules. The rule of law is dead and we need to start acting accordingly.

Raconteur Report: Hold Your Horses: Crawl, Walk, Run For a good guideline, stick a pin in a map where you are. Scribe a circle to the limit of a tank of gas – say, 400-500 miles – and look hardest at that. That’s your “area of interest”. Same pin, then a circle of the 20 miles in any direction you could walk in a day: that’s your “area of concern”. You should know both intimately, for all topics in your sample Area Study. This is what Sun Tzu meant when he said “know your enemy” and “know the ground”.

There is also the fact that Biden reminds everyone of how their late grandfather died in the nursing home and Harris reminds everyone of when they last renewed their driver’s license. AOC, the face of woke women everywhere, will be manna from heaven for the media. She may be a raving dingbat, but she makes good television. More important, she would promise to kill off the baby-boomer consensus and usher in a far-left hegemony.

There are three undeniable truths operating right now in America. I. Elections are pointless, worthless, and futile. TINVOWOOT: There Is No Voting Our Way Out Of This.

II. We’re at war, within this country, with those who hate fundamental America. Not a debate. Not an argument. Not a fight. A W-A-R. They want you dead. They want you rounded up and obliterated, and they want to kill your unborn babies, kidnap your living children, and poison their minds against you.

III. You aren’t ready to fight any other kind of actual war. Yet. AIP: Get yourself ready for a war. A) It’s going to be a shooting war, so you’d better have something to shoot with, and something to load into it. And you’d better get damned good with it. The good news is, even for GED-holding high school dropouts, that only takes a few hours a day for a couple-three weeks, even for Army Rangers and Marines.

Diabolical Narcissism: When Parents Deify Their Child… the Child Becomes Tiger Woods The deification of a child is THE most difficult to correct and deeply entrenched form of Diabolical Narcissism. It is, statistically, pretty much impossible to reverse without miraculous intervention. And the levels of psychopathy and sexual perversion it yields are some of the worst in the human race. The DN I crossed paths with ended up as one of if not the most notorious layman sodomites on the Rome/Vatican clerical gay scene, literally having sodomitical hook-ups inside St. Peter’s Basilica. Now you know at least a partial reason why CoronaScam has been permitted to happen and the Vatican and St. Peter’s are essentially empty.

How to Do the Things You Keep Avoiding The Cloud is not the Task, but from a distance it appears to be. The Task is what you have to do. The Cloud is all the immaterial, psychological stuff that condenses around a Task when you’re thinking about it without doing it. It’s a byproduct, made of intolerable, insoluble problems that aren’t really about the task, like self-doubt and the pain of past mistakes.

Our Descent Into Collective Madness | Americans should pause and examine the utter disaster that unfolded recently in Texas and its environs. Parts of the American Southwest were covered in ice and snow for days. Nighttime temperatures crashed to near zero in some places. The state, under pressure, had been transitioning from its near-limitless and cheap reservoirs of natural gas and other fossil fuels to generating power through wind and solar. But what happens to millions of Texans when wind turbines freeze up while storm clouds extinguish solar power?

We are witnessing the answer in oil- and gas-rich but energy-poor Texas that is all but shut down.

According to a recent survey, the number one worry for self-identified Democrats are the supporters of Donald Trump. 82% of Democrats are “extremely concerned” about the 73 million people who voted for Trump. Right behind that, 79% are extremely concerned with white nationalism. Just behind that, 77% are extremely concerned with systemic racism. You will note there is a theme to all of the top issues. These people are sure they are at war with a violent, but invisible army of bigots.

We have here a serious issue. This man is a zombie, totally unfit for any public office, much less the US presidency, and surrounded by a cabal of morons, woke maniacs, power-hungry swamp creatures, grifters, and haters of America and the West. We, in short, have here a formula for disaster.

I keep thinking of a “Mission Impossible” episode with Martin Landau in which a group of Nazis had fled to some unnamed Latin American country to plot their return to power. Their leader, however, was, in fact, dead or comatose, and some vile number two, presumably Martin Borman, was the only one who knew this but yet brought messages “from” the Leader. Biden’s people must have seen that episode. He’s a fraud, an illegitimate fraud occupying the White House.

The “Second Amendment Preservation Act of Newton County Missouri” reads, in part: All federal acts, laws, orders, rules, and regulations passed by the federal government and specifically any presidential administration whether past, present, or future, which infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article 1, Section 23 of the Missouri Constitution shall be invalid in the county, shall not be recognized by this county, and specifically rejected by this county, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this County. Newton County Commission letter dated 2/3/21

“Managerialism” in America | Joel D. Hirst’s Blog   Democrats are the more natural inheritors of collectivist political projects (‘New Deal’ and eugenics and Planned Parenthood and minimum wage and other attempts at social class-creation), they fit more neatly and are more comfortable with the herd (and know best how to manage it); whereas republicans – the offspring of Aristotle – have a more libertarian “leave me the hell alone” strain to them. But it should be mentioned that neither the .1% nor the 9.9% are necessarily party-affiliated. It is about class, not party and certainly not about ideology. Ideology is only deployed as a useful weapon by individuals vying against their competitors to join the 9.9% (or to hold their perch, at all costs there).

“When did you meet a workman who believes the papers? He takes it for granted that they’re all propaganda… He is our problem. We have to recondition him. But the educated public…don’t need reconditioning… They’ll believe anything.” ―C.S. Lewis, That Hideous Strength

    The United States as we have always known it is finished. Permanently terminated. No election to come can restore it. After 2022’s “election,” no matter who wins, the breakup will come in earnest. I pray it will be at least mostly peaceful. But I fear it won’t be.

    The Light!. Awesome, admittedly I live in gods country, AG ranch country, 4200 ft. Absolutely nothing has changed as a result of the election, well I did,” once again” worked myself up into almost insanity with black hoppers over the horizon.

    I honestly thought with the theft of an election, we were finally going to take our country back. Silly me. I’d gone so far as to straighten my legal affairs out, make sure my wife of forty years was to receive all my monies she so deserves, after forty years of putting up with me. Like raising a sixteen yr old!.

    Happy to report I’ve talked myself off the edge, GV, you your awesome site, are hugely responsible for this. My chill pill!.

    My solution was simple quit reading the ” experts” the propaganda our side spews. Yes we have a core group of blog daddies who perpetuate the fight. You know the one, NOT coming.

    Finding ones spine. Lord, I’m amused. Those shit talkers, still talking shit. No action, o wait many went to DC to the Trump Ambush. These alledged pro’s set themselves up, like fish on a bare hook. I ask you all, who didn’t see what happened on the sixth coming. Apparently not those clods. Idiots, haha, I’ve grown fond of that word.

    Life’s to good to throw it all away. O well life goes on. Civil war,? Someday, but not in my lifetime. So until then, ill continue to build rifles, load ammo. I’m fortunate I’ve been finding lots of ammo, at old school prices. ” I have friends in very low places” govt!.

    I’m able to purchase 45 or 40 by the thousand for 400.00 per 1k. Not cheap but not bad. Our powder and bullet ordered are starting to arrive. I clean the police range few times a yr for brass. 9mm, 40, 45, 223, and 308. Many thousands this past year.

    Would someone please call me, when the war starts? Until then I’m gonna live what good years I have left,,,,,,, well.
    Told the big trout are waking up, on the lake, gotta go pick up the North River at the coast, it’s time!.

    GV, it’s three hours, up if your interested, if not no worries, I do my best work by myself, nobody around to correct my math if I get it wrong, who cares!

    A glorious day here, fifty five, later, still heavy frost on everything right now, 20 last night. A heat wave.

    Life is about choices, I’ve no idea if I’ve gotten it right. However what we do,,,,,,seems to work for us, and we don’t step on toes in that process. Help where we can.

    Walk the dog, wash the cats, listen to great music, on old 50s 60’s tube gear, thru five ft tall speakers. Declared today Jazz day.

    Great day to you all.

    Goodbye America. It was nice knowing you.

    With a country split between reality-denying SJWs on one side and hyper-religious equally reality-denying gun nuts on the other, it wasn’t going to end well.

    If some rich landowners hadn’t decided to start a treasonous rebellion over perfectly justifiable taxes to pay for protecting you from savages, you could have been a much larger and richer Canada. Would that have been so bad?

  • Jack March 1, 2021, 9:23 AM

    Couple of things. Every time I see a photo of Rick (Rachael) Levine I have this nagging feeling that tells me “I’ve seen that dude somewhere….”. Well, it finally occurred to me that Levine looks a great deal like a fat Waddy Wachtel, the enormously talented and creative session and recording guitarist. It’s probably not a well known thing since stuff gets covered up but a few years ago Wachtel and, I believe, his wife, were nabbed by the FBI for possession of child porn on a computer in their home. Not saying here that Waddie is a pedo but, well…you know….

    Regarding the Zero HP Lovecraft post of the wild haired, pouty lipped mountain gorilla, ostensibly instructing white people on their innate racism…nah, it’s not racist to post her picture. She’s an element, a small pixel, in the face of satanic evil and people should be shown it, in all of its horror and revulsion.

    Fletcher says: “With a country split between reality-denying SJWs on one side and hyper-religious equally reality-denying gun nuts on the other, it wasn’t going to end well.”

    That’s not the split at all. Don’t look at the outer ends of the bell as presented in the Daily Mail or their ilk.

  • Vanderleun March 1, 2021, 9:49 AM

    As for Strange Daze…. what you see here is only about 25% of what I notice and clip.

    As for Dirk’s invite, well I may well take you up on that as soon as I can put some potential earning concepts in play so I don’t outlive what money I have…. unless, of course, money becomes worthless in its paper form.

  • John The River March 1, 2021, 10:53 AM

    Gerard, you have a stronger stomach than I have. I’ve stopped updating my little blog since the events of January once I realized it was going to become a long dreary downward spiral path into Hell.
    Dante I’m not.
    Dirk, “call you when the war starts…”. Sorry the war has started, their war and fought with their weapons, ‘War is merely the continuation of politics by other means.’ The lefts war is the continuation of war by politics. Backed up by the guns and all the force of the Federal Government. Allied to the wealth and control of almost everything by Big Tech. With Cancellation hanging over everyone’s head.
    Going quiet.

  • Casey Klahn March 1, 2021, 7:42 PM

    Let’s see. War, huh?

    I’ve never fought one, and I’m aware that some here have. I did graduate from the top infantry school, which means I graduated from every other infantry school lading up to that, and I’ve made a life’s study of Clausewitz and his peers. Sun Tzu isn’t in that group. Put him away and read the grown up books. So, I guess as far as preparation is concerned, I’ve done some of that.

    After I retired from mountain guiding in the PNW, I took up a gentlemanly sport: hunting. Some things I learned in that endeavor were not learned in the army or in the high mountains. Adopt your sights quickly and efficiently – it must be second nature to you. Suppressive fire is all good until you meet someone or something that won’t “be suppressed”. You must hit your target, whether from the offhand or from a field expedient support. Bipods are heavy, but essential in certain country. Carbines are fun but they don’t match rifles. Shotguns are like gold, but train to aim them; your cheek will be black and blue but expend some money on target loads for your .12 gauge. They are available, I think.

    Learn to think inductively. That’s what I said and I didn’t stutter. There is an art to war and to hunting and to any extreme endeavor outdoors. Study up on the OODA loop and understand how to get inside your enemies’ decision arc. I found out how to get inside the coyote’s skills arc, and he’s one of the sharpest adversaries you will find; sharper than the normal human by a longways.

    Killing animals is a start. I have no idea what it’s like to kill humans but when the ABC and the BLM begin in on killing, you’ll know what to do. Does that sound harsh? I was reflecting on the woman who was murdered in cold blood inside the capitol building on Jan 6th. She was surrounded by more law enforcement, uniformed and plain clothed, and by BLM and Antifa types, and FBI types, than by her own kind, when she presented herself in that broken window aperture. The cuck who shot her (who knows his name?) went for a head shot, at almost point blank range, and in as ideologically comfortable a place as he could be as far as his cohort is concerned, and the muthafugga missed the head and got her neck. Probably the reason no one else needed to be shot that day was there were too many fukn govt. agents, undercovers, and Antifa APs to get any decent shots.

    How’s that make you feel?

    The Vietnamese high command waged an offensive defense against the USA and the West. The Italian campaign was an offensive defense. It is the strong position, my friends. Keep your arms, don’t give the Left even an inch ideologically. There ain’t a GD thing wrong with America, as founded. The races aren’t at odds, and the fukn planet is just fine. Private property is not a vice, and Marx is as wrong now as he ever was.

    That’s what I’m thinking today.

  • TrangBang68 March 1, 2021, 8:43 PM

    Fletcher Christian, I remember you around here before. You’ve always been an arrogant, sniveling little coward. Sorry to see you again.

  • Fletcher Christian March 1, 2021, 11:34 PM

    I remember you too. You’ve always been a foul-mouthed (or text equivalent), ignorant, closed-minded and arrogant a-hole, just like Americans at their worst always are. Likewise.

  • H (science denier) March 2, 2021, 3:48 AM

    Yes, Fletcher, we Americans are admittedly the worst, no question about it that we suck, especially when you lot get in trouble and have to come begging the arrogant, ignorant Colonials for help as you did in two world wars. Not to mention they’d be speaking Spanish in the Falklands if not for some closed-minded American assistance. How dreary……


  • ghostsniper March 2, 2021, 4:55 AM

    Casey sed: “How’s that make you feel?”
    Like I feel everyday, having introspectively made my decisions long ago.
    Those decisions are built-in, natural.
    If you want to live, at some point someone else may challenge that idea.
    For me, since I stopped playing soldier more than 4 decades ago, that means constant perimeter guard at the property lines. I’ve been tested on this idea a couple times. Inside my wire I am 100% right 100% of the time. Outside I am likely 100% wrong, so I don’t go out there much.

    Make the enemy come to you if you can for if you have to chase him you may be wrong.
    I don’t want any enemies but that’s not up to me.
    If enemies exist it is by their choice alone.
    I will simply recognize their claim and act accordingly.
    For the right cause I am not against assembling with like minded others, with conditions.
    In all things, I set out to win.
    Otherwise I’ll just sit my ass on the porch.

  • Vanderleun March 2, 2021, 7:23 AM

    Fletch, Trangbang…. let’s keep it down to a muted roar, okay? Everybody has had their shot now retire to neutral corners.

  • Fletcher Christian March 2, 2021, 9:20 AM

    Three years late in the first, two years late in the second. And you deliberately bankrupted us in the process.

    Regarding WWI: I am of the opinion that it would have been a lot better if we had let the French and Germans have at it. The damage would have been a lot less, we wouldn’t have lost close on 900,000 men, not bankrupted ourselves and there would never have been a WWII. And we might still have an Empire.

    Vanderleun, sorry about that but I couldn’t let it go.
