Strange Daze: Men without Chests and the Devil’s Bargain

It took a while, but now ruling classes all over the world are all-in on saving the victims. But if Eric Hoffer is right about how movements end up as rackets, it makes complete sense that once our modern ruling class had saved the real victims — workers and slaves — it would make its movement into a racket: protecting fake victims from white oppressors who are nothing more than ordinary Americans gulled into joining fake insurrectionist movements run by FBI operatives.The communists are good at playing the democracy game and the capitalism game, but they are actively deceiving everyone as they build up an impregnable political position.A Venezuelan politician told me years ago, “The only road back to freedom for Venezuela is civil war, and nobody wants to talk about civil war; so people just leave the country and go to Miami instead.” When Miami is lost, where will they go next?

There is one word we should linger on, because every moment of radical victory turned on it. The word is cowardice. The revolution has been met with almost no resistance by those who have the title CEO or leader or president or principal in front of their names. The refusal of the adults in the room to speak the truth, their refusal to say no to efforts to undermine the mission of their institutions, their fear of being called a bad name and that fear trumping their responsibility — that is how we got here.

San Francisco Closes In-N-Out After Company Defies Vaccine Mandates In a statement, In-N-Out Chief Legal & Business Officer Arnie Wensinger said that the company “fiercely” disagrees with government mandates that force businesses to discriminate: We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government. It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant associates to segregate customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason.

Alec Baldwin is now the Ted Kennedy of firearms safety: he’s killed more people with his gun than most of you will ever kill with your entire collection, whether that’s one gun, or one hundred, even if they’re all misnamed “assault” weapons, which are no such thing.

The Triumph and Terror of Wang Huning – Palladium One day in August 2021, Zhao Wei disappeared. For one of China’s best-known actresses to physically vanish from public view would have been enough to cause a stir on its own. But Zhao’s disappearing act was far more thorough: overnight, she was erased from the internet. Her Weibo social media page, with its 86 million followers, went offline, as did fan sites dedicated to her. Searches for her many films and television shows returned no results on streaming sites. Zhao’s name was scrubbed from the credits of projects she had appeared in or directed, replaced with a blank space. Online discussions uttering her name were censored. Suddenly, little trace remained that the 45-year-old celebrity had ever existed.

The mass media is full of opinion writers who make mid-six-figure salaries. Their audience is often the middling members of the managerial class who make similar salaries. The demand here is for the rich to pay their fair share of income taxes, despite the fact that the genuinely rich make their money from things other than salary. In other words, in the name of fairness, the servants of the rich need to pay more tax.

A good recent example is the hypersonic missile stuff. The claim is China has these new superweapons and America is falling behind the commies. This is complete nonsense as these weapons do not exist and probably will never exist. It is just a fake story to agitate the public. Despite this, even the most jaded critics of mass media thoughtlessly accept that the Chinese now have hypersonic weapons.

Best robotic lawn mowers to buy in 2021 – BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine Powered by rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries, the mowers are guided by a boundary cable, which needs to be laid around the edge of the lawn. This helps the robotic lawn mower identify where to mow and avoid flower beds, trees, and other obstacles.

This is the devil’s bargain of the technium, and we have been falling for it forever: embrace the new, lose the old, and find yourself more deeply entwined in a technological web from which you cannot extricate yourself even if you want to. Also known as the progress trap, this is the world we live in, and the robot mower is only its latest examplar. Also available in all reliable outlets are such joys as Smart fridges, robot vacuum cleaners, instant boiling water taps (no more tiresome boiling the kettle!), ‘Smart body analysers’, Smartwatches, and of course the terrifying Alexa, who will helpfully monitor all of your private conversations and pass them straight on to Jeff Bezos. All are sold to us as exciting, time-saving, life-improving gadgets. All are traps, into which we happily pay to walk.

I just bought a second freezer. I intend to cram it to bursting with meats, legumes, any vegetables that will survive being frozen, coffee, and whatever other edibles belong in a freezer. I figure that between my two freezers and my large pantry, I can store enough to feed us for at least a year. (I can’t eat that “survival food” crap. Too much salt for a man whose blood pressure could be used to power a moonshot.) If we’re still under the Usurpers’ thumbs a year from now, I very much doubt I’ll still be alive. Some uniformed thug  –“Just doing my job, sir” — will have posed me, a retiree of reclusive ways, the choice of vaccination or death.

     In that event, I intend to take as many such thugs to Hell with me as I can. I’d consider it a service to my fellow freedom lovers. (Also, I want a decent honor guard when I get there.) If you’re similarly inclined, a few words of advice:

Load the shotgun with slugs;
Aim for the face.

     Yes, you really did just read all that. Yes, I meant every word. For now, avoid crowds, keep your loved ones close, and be well. I’ll see you on the other side.

    Slugs will change the aiming point of your 12 gauge. Unless you’re going to expend 4 or 5 boxes sighting in, don’t do slugs to the face plan. A sexy load is one that some call “Dead Coyote,” which is a mix of .22 pellet and .00 pellets. It’s farkin harsh, and it aims the same as your bird shot, more or less.

    Hypersonic missiles like kinetic energy and accuracy, and the Chinamen don’t have the latter. I doubt they will anytime soon. The only way they’ll get them on target will be to laze the target with a special ops soldier within line of sight of the target. Solution: round up suspected those guys and place them in camps. Hey! You asked for a solution!

    Cowardice is a word. It’s also infectious. There are many commenters here who can teach on courage, but I’ll just tell you that self-doubt , emotional fragility, and physical weakness feed cowardice. What supports courage? Moral character.

        My 1917 model 12 12ga was my grandpappy’s – given to him new when he was 12, handed to my pappy when he was 12, and then given to me almost 40 years ago. It shoots like a dream. Yes, you can hold the trigger back and pump away til it’s empty. Because it’s been a working gun all it’s life it’s due for a complete restoration which I may mount over the winter.

              Hold the trigger down and pump the action. My bird gun and my riot gun will not do that; they require a trigger pull each shot. Well, none of these guns actually exist in my inventory, you understand.
              I’d be interested to see a comparison of a semi auto with a trench gun, but my money’s on the trench gun because stoppages and double-feeds are your own business.

                I’m currently and aggressively shopping for a lightly used 12ga autoloader, don’t care what brand. Prefer box mag for fast reloads on the run. Will study documentation, complete disassembly, modifications as warranted, reassembly with custom furniture. A decent shotgun in the hands of an experienced shooter is a formidable thing to be recon’d with.

        How I wish! Down near and thereabouts Oklahoma there ain’t no bears worth worrying about. Since I am either backpacking or bikepacking I can’t carry a rifle. I always have my faithful .40 Smith & Wesson with JHPs. Good enough for our bears.

        The problem is that next April – June I’m heading to Idaho on my bicycle—in other words, I’ll be wild camping among brown and grizzly bears. Yikes. Looking at a Taurus .357 revolver, though I just might load my .40 with FMJs and hope for the best.

        • TwoDogs October 30, 2021, 8:26 PM

          .357 is generally thought to be not enough for grizzlies. .44 Mag, or at a minimum 10mm are thought to be adequate, if barely. No pun intended.

          • Mike Austin October 31, 2021, 5:22 AM

            I know. I once owned a .44 Smith & Wesson revolver, but the recoil was simply too much for my hands. After every shooting my right hand would be cut and bleeding.

            There is some evidence that with a proper load, a .40 will be good enough. I really, really hope so.


  • Mike Austin October 29, 2021, 10:35 AM

    About that “Megacity” video: I cannot recall at any time in my 68 years so much nonsense spewed out in so little time. It was an amazing performance of mendacity, historical ignorance, false premises, and scary stories to frighten schoolgirls. Then I saw it: “Pentagon Production”. Ok then. The same guys that lost Vietnam, lost Iraq, lost Afghanistan; the same guys that allow the sexually ambiguous and confused into the ranks; the same guys that worship the feet of the treasonous; the same guys that babble on and on about “domestic terrorists”, “climate change”, and “white supremacy”. I get it now, but this video should have been on the Cartoon Network.

    So: Our “ruling class” is now presenting itself as a “victim”? They are a bit premature. They are not victims. Yet.

    J.R. Nyquist goes on and on about Brazil—as if somewhere, somebody, somehow cares. He says some remarkably silly things: “The situation in Brazil is not so different than it is here in America.” Um…really? I spent 12 years in South America and traveled around Brazil several times. I never, ever—not once—got the impression that Brazil was anything like the US. Like Ghana, sure. And: “How is America any different from Brazil?” Wow. He doesn’t know? Wow. The stupidity—it burns.

    Somebody named Zhao Wei disappeared. “For one of China’s best-known actresses to physically vanish from public view would have been enough to cause a stir on its own.” Well, yes. Tyrants have always acted thus. Thirty-five hundred years ago the step-son of the pharaoh Hatshepsut, Thutmosis III, as soon as he became pharaoh, began the dismantling of everything in Egypt that reminded anyone of Hatshepsut. Obelisks were torn down, her cartouches were destroyed, her very name chiseled out of monuments. Thutmosis III did a “Zhao Wei” —an early form of “damnatio memoriaeon”—on his step-mom.

    The forced “disappearing” of prominent and influential people who fall afoul of authority is as old as the pyramids. Be careful of those above you. You never really know them. Here are some who never learned this.


  • Dirk October 29, 2021, 12:05 PM

    I’ll take that bet on accuracy Casey. A simple mathematical adjustment. You may already know this, but China has shot hundreds of hyper sonic vehicle tests. Think I read we are at 9.

    My house shotgun has something named a “ Duckbill” on it, spreads the shot out very quickly. SEALS in a place referred to as Rung SAT, delta of Vietnam, developed these, used the duckbills very effectively.

    Manufactured in Texas can purchase for like 120.00,mine is attached to a screw in choke. Screw the choke in tune the porting and it’s a bad mamba Jamba. No slugs, with blow the device right off the end of the shotgun.

    I’m big on #3 buck, difficult to source, for me, it’s ideal.

    My father in laws, a aero space engineer, retired from MX misspell program, Aerojet, out of Folsom Calf.

    Putting each of a twenty warhead nuke, within 15 ft of each targets, child’s play. Na the Chinese will steal the sources, from one of their Chinese spy’s in virtually every university and all space corp in the world.

    Their thieves, not scientists!


    • ghostsniper October 29, 2021, 7:29 PM

      Where can the duckbill be bought?

      • Dirk October 29, 2021, 7:43 PM

        Ghost, look up Gator shotgun duckbill. I don’t know how to make a link or I would have. Got a few from a company in Texas.

        Hope this helps. The site does some testing T&E with actual pattern photos, a tool I’ve known of for many years.

        Think you just may find this helpful.. no’s slugs after the buckbills attached.


        • Dirk October 29, 2021, 8:22 PM

          Paradym is or was a company out of Texas. I got like four when they came out. In 2014 ish. My uncle had built me one as a breaching tool, in 2006, Mounted to a shorty 870,. The problem I discovered was I was blowing door knobs and door hinges with number four buck, not a great idea. “ Avon rounds were very new at that time.”

          Ceramic Avon rounds are what’s used, obviously made of ceramic materials, in a slug like round. I did not launch an Avon round out of my uncles duckbill or out of my Paradym duckbills.

          Sadly they didn’t make a duckbill for a model 37 featherweight. I have an 870 a mossberg 590 and I think the other is a Winchester pump. I purchased another for My friend over at WRSA, Pete never picked it up. His loss. The forth will go on another SG

          The device is machined, A standard factory choke is there’d into the duckbill, then the duckbills threaded into the shotgun.

          Then the factory chokes threaded into the factory 18/20 in barrel.

          I’ve seen the duckbills on much shorter barrels, had one on the pistol gripped chopped barreled 870. When I retired, I donated the 870 SG to the agency. It’s an NFA item, not legal without a tax stamp. Not that I give a shit.

          Was going to take a pic of one of mine, have a different barrel on the 870. Was running a 20 inch barrel, with the duck bill I,found it very cumbersome working in a house or enclosed environment.

          I’ve had the newer barrel milled to 18, minus the three inches for the overall length of the duckbill. The stated goal is a 18.2 inch barrel with the duckbill screwed on. Should you go this route, the duckbills gotta be pinned, or solidly silver wielded onto the existing barrel.

          Again like I give a shit. I told you the truth as I don’t want anybody getting jammed for aNFA short barrel ATF violation, a federal felony.

          Hope this helps.


          • Casey Klahn October 29, 2021, 10:50 PM

            Duckbill, eh? I have turkey chokes, and extra extra full chokes, but that’s a new one on me. I will look into it. My extra extra full choke will allow the slugs. BTW, with slugs, I use an a sight picture where I cut the bead sight in half with the flat rear “sight”. Good to 75 yrds in desperation; best at 50.

          • ghostsniper October 30, 2021, 6:52 AM

            Thanks for all the info Dirk.
            Unfortunately none of my current shotguns have changeable chokes.
            But I’ve been thinking about getting a few extra barrels for one of my 870’s.

            • Dirk October 30, 2021, 7:57 AM

              Ghost, a gunsmith can thread any barrel internally for a choke. Not cheap, at 200. Look for a smith who knows what their doing. AND the thread pitch is different for many different shotguns, chokes.. Determine what paradigms duckbill selection is, purchase. “ I haven’t looked but I’m sure other companies are making them by now”

              Then have your Smith thread to that pitch, pattern. In my collection I had to go this route, as when the m4 silly season hit, the went older shotgun buying. None had chokes after I had the barrels turned on a lathe.

              Speaking of house shotguns, right now I’ve got a 930 semi Mossberg behind the door.

              But my go to traveling shotguns a Kel Tec,15 rounder pump gun. A set of Troy sights, a red dot, and a flashlight round out the package. 15 rounds in two side by side mag tubs.

              When one sides empty, a crude switch is moved and the other magazines now in play
              The down side is with this Kel Tec,,,,,, short stroking the pump actions an issue. One must push and pull the slide action with authority.

              Some pretty cool accessories are available. One being a side saddle for six extra rounds. I had mounted one, and the shotgun quit cycling, period. Easy fix, last extra part added, first add on part off. Discovered the set screws holding the side saddle were a tiny bit to long from the manufacture.

              Came to my senses, dam shotgun holds 15 plus one. Do I really need six more.

              I see things often differently then most. I clearly understand that if you are unfortunate enough to have a home invasion, occur while your sleeping, when you take defensive action,,,, your going to be fighting with whatever your wearing, and the weapon and what’s loaded in it.

              Around here, we wear zero to bed, so no pockets for spare mags,,,,our weapons must contain enough bullets, to engage and finish what the invaders started. 15 plus ones a lot of “ love” to be sending in their direction.

              Have a look at thes Kel Tec s, short, handy in tight corners. Kel Tec now has a bigger version which holds 25 rounds, a box of bullets. I don’t have one of those,,,,,,,,, Yet.

              Hope this helps.

              One last thing. If you get jumped in your home, one MUST, have a specific location,
              To go. A farthest back bedroom seems logical. Wise families have many tools available in that safe spot. When our children were here, they knew to get to that place, and arm themselves.

              They knew that dad would be taking the fight to the retards who foolishly came to our home. Also understood dad just might get fucked up. Around here we raised children who can handle their own protection. Practice makes perfect, well not perfect but a bit safer.

      Disagree. The Intercept became so left it expelled the lefty that founded it. Clue–“They will have to return the city to the people”. The people, ha. This is a production from people who are not antagonistic to the ruling class, but who only wish to be paid to advise them. Funded entirely by yet another deranged billionaire, the executives and “journalist” of the Intercept make salaries undreamed of in the world of paid subscriptions and advertisers.

      • Vanderleun October 29, 2021, 4:48 PM

        The video in question was made by The Pentagon. It was knocked loose by a “Freedom of Information” demand by The Intercept.

        From the description under the video at YouTube:

        According to a startling Pentagon video obtained by The Intercept, the future of global cities will be an amalgam of the settings of “Escape from New York” and “Robocop” — with dashes of the “Warriors” and “Divergent” thrown in. It will be a world of Robert Kaplan-esque urban hellscapes — brutal and anarchic supercities filled with gangs of youth-gone-wild, a restive underclass, criminal syndicates, and bands of malicious hackers. At least that’s the scenario outlined in “Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity,” a five-minute video that has been used at the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations University. All that stands between the coming chaos and the good people of Lagos and Dhaka (or maybe even New York City) is the U.S. Army, according to the video, which The Intercept obtained via the Freedom of Information Act.

        In addition, this was put together before 2016 when Glenn Greenwald was still in control of The Intercept.

        • james wilson October 29, 2021, 7:05 PM

          Ok. Does the Pentagon have more credibility than the Intercept?

          • Dirk October 29, 2021, 8:27 PM

            James,,,,,,,How, or why do you feel this specific mega city’s intel’s bullshit?. I see this possibility as one of the single most dangerous possibilities this nation faces. Not dicking you, just recognize you get it. like to understand your view, an opportunity to learn


            • james wilson October 30, 2021, 2:39 AM

              The Pentagon has long assigned people to game all imaginable scenarios, war and otherwise. This is probably nothing more than that, one of hundreds. But even then, when was the last sighting of intellegence at the Pentagon or the CIA and their like? They couldn’t figure out Afganistan after twenty years and then they couldn’t figure out how to leave. You can learn interesting things from individuals in the military and I have, but nothing coming out of the swamp, even purloined papers, if they even were that. Somebody wanted their pet let out.
              Little could shock me in a civilizational collapse, including dystopian cities, but the way it plays out will likely surprise. So many possibilities and then there’s the ones we never thought of. Predicting the weather a week out is challenging, a month out is pretentious.
              We don’t have any secret geniuses in the Pentagon. A very distinguished and amazingly creative Army officer I know quit the Army two years after being assigned to the Pentagon.

              • Dirk October 30, 2021, 8:00 AM

                Thank you James, I do agree, I don’t see this possibility as the only possibility but just one of ten thousand.

      China is a paper tiger, all huffing and puffing, all blowhard and corruption, all filth and bloody murder. There is no there, there. Listening to all the Sinophiles in the media, one would get the impression that China was a modern Camelot. In fact she is a modern cesspool of lies.

      A lady of long aquantance of sound mind and a good soul has gone full Covidian and is happily and proudly off to her second shot. I asked her which “vaccine” and she replied it would be a different company. Mixing it up, she was told, is even better. Then she informed me that 99% of covid hospitalizations were the unvaccinated. I asked her to email me a source and she became deeply upset.

      I went on googleog to see what they had planned for me and sure enough it was 99% for the first four pages until I hit on the first honest report with actual numbers, and it was from the lefty Lancet medical journal, which then did it’s best to contradict it’s own reporting.

        “Gone full Covidian”: three frightening words indeed. Yeah, it’s a religion alright, and its followers wear their masks to signal to other members that they belong. Like Christians wearing Crosses. Chesterton had their number decades ago:

        “The problem of disbelieving in God is not that a man ends up believing nothing. Alas, it is much worse. He ends up believing anything.”

        Like all false gods, this cult will eventually pass away. Today’s Covidians will then search for some other faith, some other new and exciting thing. Maybe a cult of Mithra. After all, there is precedent.

  • gw October 30, 2021, 12:23 PM

    The Megacities video made me feel very uneasy. We recently had 26,000 armed troops cordon off the U.S. Capitol on January 6th and made ready to fight American citizens. Evidence exists that the Feds in the crowd played a role inciting the crowd to enter the Capitol. An unarmed female protestor was shot dead without apparent cause and DOJ only said move on. The people jailed, violent or not, were, are reportedly treated worse by the government than many more violent criminals who are arrested. Concerned citizens are regularly referred to as “Taliban”, or domestic terrorists. The head of the Dept. of Defense and Joint Chiefs of Staff are focused on attacking the “white rage” pandemic. I realize the video highlighted developing economies. However, I couldn’t help but thinking that in classrooms at our military academies focus is being put on the “what if” for American cities.

      Those National Guard troops were just for show, to demonstrate to one and all that Nancy Pelosi is super tough. If ordered to fire, would they have? We can’t know today. But we will know tomorrow.

      What happened on January 6th would have warmed the heart of Stalin. It proved Beria’s boast, “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime”.

      There is an Argentine saying, “Every pig has its day.” Be patient.

        Like you, I hope that comes true per its original meaning, and not in the form of the “Animal House” our woke leaders have reimagined.

        In 1970, NG troops did fire on citizens, twice. And their lives were not in danger when they did.

        I suspect we’re more in danger from our militarized police. They already have demonstrated a willingness to shoot. And they have belt-fed weapons now.

          Militarized police live in the same neighborhoods as the people they would be ordered to shoot down. Everyone knows who they are.

          As for the National Guard, I don’t want them anywhere near me at any time.

        “Cada chancho tiene su San Martín” is the saying, but it’s been lost sight of that the original saying from Spain was not like “Every dog has its day”. St Martin’s Day (Nov 11) is the traditional day for slaughtering pigs in Spain given the cool weather. Argentina, in the southern hemisphere, has a different climate in Nov. Be careful what you wish for…

    Oops, meant “Animal Farm”. But some days, it does feel like its all run by the guys from “Animal House.”
