Strange Daze: Burning Down the House

Hold tight
Wait ’til the party’s over
Hold tight
We’re in for nasty weather
There has got to be a way
Burning down the house

“Unhoused”? It begins: Unhoused person attacked with fire at Baker Park in Grants Pass

Russia Removed From Apple Maps | “As far as we’re concerned, Russia no longer exists on our detailed map of the entire world,” said CEO Tim Cook from his vacation home in Beijing. “And if Apple Inc. says you don’t exist, then you don’t exist! Russia is now the East Atlantic Ocean. Take that, Russia!”

The evil that is NPR: Overnight, the network’s entire orientation had changed. Every segment was about race, and when it wasn’t about race, it was about gender. The stories were no longer reports but morality plays, with predictable bad guys and good guys. Scepticism was banished. Divergent opinions were banished. The pronouncements of activists, the arguments of ideologically motivated academics, were accepted without question. The tone became smug, certain, self-righteous. To turn on the network was to be subjected to a program of ideological force-feeding. I was used to the idiocies of the academic Left — I had been dealing with them ever since I started graduate school — but now they were leaking out of my radio.

The Russophobic all-out attack on Russian exports also targets palladium – vital for electronics, from laptops to aircraft systems. Prices are skyrocketing. Russia controls 50% of the market. Then there are noble gases – neon, helium, argon, xenon – essential for production of microchips. Titanium has risen by a quarter and both Boeing – by a third – and Airbus – by two thirds – rely on titanium from Russia. Oil, food, fertilizers, strategic metals, neon gas for semiconductors: all burning at the stake, at the feet of Witch Russia.

This isn’t World War Three. It is far, far worse. This is World War SODOMY. Ever been to Europe? Ever been to Italy? With a church every 50 yards? With sacred images on nearly every street corner, and on every other building? With art museums filled with room after room after room of paintings and sculptures of Christian subjects?

They want it gone. They want it all burned and pounded to ash and rubble in exactly the same way that God Almighty pounded to rubble and burned to ash Sodom and Gomorrah. They want it all utterly wiped from the earth so that all memory of it even existing will be wiped within a generation or two – assuming there is anyone left at all.

Don Surber: Macgregor: Zelensky is no hero Readers may wonder why I am not accepting the NATO narrative on the Russo-Ukraine War. Let us review, shall we?

Just $15 dollars a gallon to slow the spread!

  1. If you dare question global warming (recently renamed climate change), they say you are for pollution and corporate greed.
  2. If you dare question Obamacare, they say you must want people to die.
  3. If you dare question how Biden got so many mail-in votes, they say you are an insurrectionist.
  4. If you dare question BLM, they say you are a racist.
  5. And if you dare question the validity of masks, vax and social distancing, they say you want people to die again this time from covid.

The pattern is clear. Any time you question them, they call you names instead of answering the question.
On top of that, their solutions never solve the problem. Replacing cars with electric cars results in big batteries “that have high environmental costs.” Obamacare did not make health insurance cheaper.
Not reviewing the election results has increased public skepticism and reduced public confidence in voting.
Following the BLM riots, the murders of black men soared. And of course, all those mandated precautions did little to slow — let alone stop — the spread of covid.

Now if you dare question the West’s sudden support for Ukraine, they say you are a puppet for Putin.
The propaganda campaign on this one is so good that polls show three-quarter of Americans want the USA to shoot down Russian aircraft over Ukraine. That’s an act of war. Three-fourths of the nation are willing to risk World War 3 over a racketeer influenced corrupt government.

Rowdy teens repeatedly wreck NYC deli, assault workers “Rowdy?” “Teens?” You know who they are without watching the tape.

DC Has Prevented Nuclear Defense, So We Must Protect Ourselves

The entire economic system assumes two things: 1) there will always be replacements for everything that can’t be repaired and 2) there will always be substitutes for everything we want. Beef too expensive? Then buy fake-meat. If that’s too expensive, substitute chicken. And so on: there will always be a substitute that can scale globally that will get cheaper as it scales.

Unfortunately, both assumptions are false. There are no replacements for oil and fertilizers. What we have are ifs: if we build 1,000 nuclear reactors, then we can convert this electricity into hydrogen which will be the fuel of the future. And so on. If, if, if. Nice, but getting beyond if is non-trivial: oops, we need hydrocarbon energy to build the 1,000 nuclear reactors and all the complex equipment to convert seawater into hydrogen on a scale large enough to matter.

Nowhere Left to Hide We are not a sane society these days, so we plunge ever-deeper into a hurly-burly of wrongful endeavor vectoring toward self-destruction. The immediate problem is a nation (us) that is powerfully bamboozled, led by a figurehead nobody believes in, backed by a hidden coterie of actors who appear to hate our country enough to try to sink it.

And if you for one moment believe that Russian billionaires will be expropriated and snubbed in London or New York, you also believe that Boris Johnson’s wives cheated on him and were at fault.

As reported last week in The Wall Street Journal, American sperm banks don’t have enough jazzy jizz. Black men are refusing to “cum in the cup,” and as a result, black women looking for love in all the wrong basters are being forced to use Arab and Indian seed. This was a front-page WSJ story.

DC Has Prevented Nuclear Defense, So We Must Protect Ourselves

Portland bans fireworks to combat climate change but burning the city for over a hundred days was just fine. Not so the lighting of a sparkler.

Clearly, Putin has just lost his mind, and has no strategic objective whatsoever (other than the total extermination of humanity), No, and is just running around the Kremlin shouting “DROP THE BOMBS! EXTERMINATE THE BRUTES!” all crazy-eyed and with his face painted green like Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now … because what other explanation is there?

Or … OK, sure, there are other explanations, but they’re all just “Russian disinformation” and “Putin-Nazi propaganda” disseminated by “Putin-apologizing, Trump-loving, discord-sowing racists,” “transphobic, anti-vax conspiracy theorists,” “Covid-denying domestic extremists,” and other traitorous blasphemers and heretics, who are being paid by Putin to infect us with doubt, historical knowledge, and critical thinking, because they hate us for our freedom … or whatever.

And just like that the Chinese Plague just evaporated: CDC chief expects COVID-19 to become a seasonal virus like the flu in the future | Covid continues to fizzle-out in US as cases drop 41% in a week and CDC chief agrees virus will likely become seasonal illness similar to the flu

This time it’s the west that’s degrading toward the worst elements of the USSR faster than Russia. Every horrible thing they tell us about Putin and Russia exists in the west and ten-fold in some cases. Political prisoners held without trial. Censorship. Pravda media. Kangaroo committees. Secret police for internal coups. Shutting down protests of one political nature while allowing others. Unequal protection under the law. Oligarchies posing as democracies. Fascism posing as liberalism. Things are certainly trending backward toward tyranny to say nothing of coerced bioweapons injections and democidal agendas. How about surrounding Russia with secret bio labs for twenty years and doing experiments on Ukrainian soldiers?

Day 11 -Putin’s last warning before beginning of the 2nd phase of the operation | Russia was willing, when forced, to intervene in the Ukraine.  If forced, Russia will take on any country, including any NATO member country, which will assist the Ukrainians militarily.  If forced, Russia will even fight all of NATO and the USA together and, if forced, she will use all her weapons, including nuclear ones.  And if that means that the entire planet is nuked then, as Putin said, ”We have no need for a planet without Russia.”  All this is to say that Russia is not bluffing, Putin will not back down, and that there is no price that Russia would not be willing to pay to prevail in this existential war.

NATO Intervention In Ukraine Could Spark Nuclear War. Here’s How The Spark: Here is where things take a turn for the worst. A Russian ballistic missile’s guidance system fails and crash-lands into NATO member Poland, killing 34 civilians as it tragically lands into a populated village along the Polish-Ukraine border. While the missile was not directed at Poland intentionally, pictures on social media show children crying for their mothers and bodies left unrecognizable, and demands for justice and revenge mount.

Escaping American tribalism – I have learned about the lab-leak hypothesis before it became an acceptable topic of discourse. About the lunacy of transgender orthodoxy (“affirmative therapy” for small children, the “cotton ceiling”). About the real statistics on police killings of unarmed black people (according to a Washington Post database, the number shot to death came to 18 in 2020, 6 in 2021). About the truth about Matthew Shepard (who was murdered, by a sometime lover and another acquaintance, over drugs), Jacob Blake (who was shot while stealing his girlfriend’s car, kidnapping her children, resisting arrest, and trying to stab a cop), and Kyle Rittenhouse (who worked in Kenosha, had a father who lived there, and was out that night, however misguidedly, to protect property and provide medical assistance).

    Emerson also said, “At different times in our lives,
    our various ancestors come up and stare out of the
    windows of our eyes.”

    The Talking Heads vid was fun. Even if it is about burning down the house. Makes me smile. As long as it is not my house. Most of rest is not much fun and leaves a frown on my brow. Oh well, things are going to hell fast.

    The latest leftist spin is that people “experience homelessness,” as if it just happens to them, for reasons completely outside their control.

    • julie March 9, 2022, 5:20 PM

      If things continue along the current trajectory, a great many people probably will be “experiencing homelessness” for reasons completely outside their control. The left are just trying to get ahead of what they have caused, to make it sound like things “just happened.”

      How many people right now are having to choose between keeping up with bills that were manageable a year or two ago, keeping food on the table and gas in the tank, and keeping a roof over their heads? What was a living wage until January of ’21 for many is completely underwater now.

    Just got back from North Pole. Bought gas, $4.78 a gallon for regular today. Checked on my neighbors to the west, in the Russian Far East, gasoline was selling for around $1.64 a gallon a day or so ago. Wonder how their doing.

    Hat Tip a very recent stream on the Academic Agent Channel. Imagine, if you will, that Bronze Age Pervert and Curtis Yarvin had a lovechild between them:


    “…All that is required is a great cut. It IS possible. We should be glad that there are monsters so vast and loathsome.

    In myth, every monster makes its hero; the greater their powers, the greater the glory in their destruction. For heroes WILL rise. The wind is up, and the wheel of fate turns once again.

    In the time of change, great men step forward, as Perseus once did, to slay monsters and found kingdoms. This is the meaning of hero: to end one chapter of history and open another. Those who are unnerved by the old sense of the word, and old heroic representations dredged from the bottom of the sea, like the Riace Bronzes, will not be included in the reshaping of life after the heroes have done their work. They are not going to make it.

    For if the Greek heroes are intolerably hard for the present age, they were made of necessity. This is simply what is required to defeat monsters. Anyone who, like the conservadorks, are perpetually more concerned with policing expressions of hardness and the will to confront evil, than with evils themselves, are worse than useless.

    They will dither to you about the “Constitooshon” while our cities burn down.

    They refuse to seriously confront the attacks on our founding myths.

    They see cultural confrontations as irrelevant. David French’s search results for “James Younger” returns zero results.

    They will not take up the power of the state, so they will fail.

    A different approach, a different man is required, a man who knows the power of myths and understands that they are REAL…”
