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?
Why Multi-Billion Dollar Nuclear Submarines Still Run Into Things UnderwaterThe means two submarines may pass very close to each other, and neither will hear the other, if background noise is loud enough to mask both submarines..
Squalor By the Seaside | Venice logged yet another RV fire, this time outside Whole Foods. Dark plumes of smoke were visible from miles around. I was surprised to find on my last shopping trip that, three days after the blaze, the charred RV had not been removed.
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!), âSmart body analysersâ, 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.
