True but Forbidden 49: Burning Dumpster States

On California today: If I wanted to live with corrupt politicians, shit on my streets, incompetent bureaucrats, and intermittent electricity I never would have left India.

On Elsewhere: I may be missing something but it seems to me that saying “N-word” has become the new N-word for the old N-word.

On Creepy, Creaking, Crazy, and Crappy Candidate Bernie being so bright as to pose in front of empty grocery store shelves while advancing his socialist candidacy:

Snit Romney Mitt’s loyalty is to Mitt and the glory that he believes should come from his blazing Mittness. He started in Michigan, then was governor in Massachusetts, then ran for president, then thought about running for Senate from New Hampshire, then moved to rich guy central in La Jolla, then ran for Senate in Utah. He’s the establishment equivalent of the cheesy strippers who you see on Southwest flights from LAX to Vegas every Friday night, with little carry-bags for their g-strings. Except they have the self-respect that comes with knowing they didn’t earn their dollars shipping American jobs to Szechuan.

Have you noticed lately that anything referencing “the conversation” is almost inevitably lame? “The conversation” is an embarrassing schoolmarmish term that has come to mean Shut Up and Listen to Me Talk. I wonder who cajoled Marantz into this embarrassing subtitle.

As the cartels’ power grows under Mexico’s current left-wing leadership, it will increase the supply of drugs and violence here at home. This is unacceptable. The wall is a good and necessary thing, but we may be forced to take more active measures, such as sending drones and troops into Mexico to root out direct threats to our homeland. There is some precedent for such measures in Blackjack Pershing’s raids on Pancho Villa. We cannot have chaos on our borders, and we should not tolerate the use of Mexico as a sanctuary for paramilitary drug cartels that would harm our citizens.

“If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.  – Karl Popper

I.Don’t. Care. – Jack Donovan Some kid in Africa probably got his head sawed off with a butter knife while some chick named Shoshana experienced the nightmare of catcalling in New York City. No one cared, because they werent told to care. Given their perceivable social class and sex, the guys who were expressing their admiration for Shoshana have probably experienced far more brutality than being propositioned for sex. And no one cared when it happened. Shoshana is just the squeaky wheel who wants to be lubricated with your tears.

Imagining Donald Trump’s Future for America But what if he wins anyway? What if enough voters realize they’re being conned by the Democrats? What if enough voters decide they don’t want to feel like unwanted usurpers in their own nation? What if men and women of all ethnicities realize that despite the unrelenting avalanche of lies coming from the Left, America is a welcoming and inclusive nation and that the only way a society can stay healthy is by rewarding personal initiative?

What if a critical mass of independent voters were to conclude that, despite his pugnacity, President Trump cares about all Americans, and actually holds moderate, compassionate, common-sense positions? If these things happen, and they very well might, not only will President Trump get reelected, but control of the House of Representatives will return once again to the GOP. And if these sentiments sweep across the land, then politicians of both parties will realize it is time to stop fighting and get back to serving the American people.

On Mexican State Collapse: A century of relative peace along our southern border has left us complacent. We haven’t seriously thought about what it might mean if a nation of one hundred twenty million people with thousands of miles of land and coastal access to the United States went into collapse. From Culiacán, Sinaloa, to Nogales, Arizona, is one day’s drive.

American slavery then. Illegal immigrants today Edited out of history for an American public with a bumper-sticker mind is that slavery was a product of the North. Slave ships in hundreds left from New York, Rhode Island, and Connecticut for Africa. When the slave trade was outlawed in 1808, Northern slavers sold contraband slaves to the South or to the godawful sugar-raising West Indies or to South America. The North grew rich from the cotton of the South, financed its plantations, and provided the slaves. Further huge profits came from trading in the products of the sugar plantations, which it turned into rum.


It is always interesting, even risible, to me to hear Leftist white women sounding off about the ethical flaws of white men. Why? Because those ethical flaws of white men, like the virtual particles of quantum mechanics, appear to pop into and out of existence according to the needs of those white women. That is, when they are ready to marry and have children, those ethical flaws disappear and those white women rush to marry white men. But after they marry and are engaged in social activism, those flaws magically pop back into existence. Those same women talk about black (and other non-white) men, the “oppressed”, in dithyrambic tones reminiscent of Pericles’s Funeral Oration. There is the superior virtue of the oppressed as these white women would have it. And yet these white women almost never choose these “virtuous” black men as husbands but opt instead for the white men who are supposed to be irredeemably flawed (Original Sin). Why? Do any of you have the answer to this simultaneous equation?

Delete Matt Drudge Its time to delete Matt Drudge. Delete his entire body of work and the remnants of his insidious, nefarious existence. For decades people trusted his news aggregating website. Now the masses who trust him do not realize he is poisoning them slowly, insidiously & nefariously to death.

— More– MOTUS A.D.: Governor Newsom Speaks Newspeak    Power to the People! Except of course in states that spend all of your money on electric trains to nowhere, subsidies for wind, solar and electric car (that run on, duh, electricity) companies instead of proper oversight of your Public Service Commission that is supposed to be providing oversight of the state’s public utility companies. In case I’m unclear: oversight would include verifying that the monopolistic companies are providing proper powerline maintenance/clearance to ensure their ability to provide customers with ongoing, uninterrupted power supply.

Part of the currently abandoned multi-multi-billion $ train-to-nowhere. Might have been better off spending all that money to build a wall and clearing utility powerlines.

“From ‘green energy revolution’ to “’de-energization’” (H/T Password is Taco) in just one administration! Remarkable! Governor Newsom speaks Newspeak, and he wants you to as well. Do. Not. Comply.

    I followed the link and watched the ABC story on Kayla Mueller, tears are still wet on my face.
    When I contemplate the liberal s-rags worshipful words of respect for Kayla’s torturer, rapist and murderer upon “his untimely death” I’m surprised to discover that there are levels of disgust and contempt yet unplumbed.

    Patrick Ryan and Seth Mandel for congress!

    Drudge. I was only this week persuaded that he’s tanked. VDH sealed that for me; if he sees the writing on the wall, it is so. And your post is timely. I wish there was another aggregate to read. Breitbart was anti-Trump in 2016 so I hate going over there. Fox is a mixed bag.

    Fuck it! I’m the news now.

    Trump must win in 2020. On that, the Left is on full shitstorm mode to take him down. Hold on, my friends. You are about to hear some really strange shit @ Tru Mp and they’ll make him (and you) look like some turds that only a mother may love. My love for the Trumpster only increases with every invective. Bring it!

    Cali voters in the aggregate are the stupidest. The Legis and the Guv passed a big gasoline tax and the voters ratified it. For fixing the roads, they promised. Stoopids! You * up, you trusted them. Newsom just shunted all that money to trains. Only it’s not trains, never was. The Browndoggle was all about passing all that money out to every progressive constituency extant, and creating all sorts of new ones. There never was any intention to ever build the train. Gotta keep the scam going, all those orgs need their next fix, so Newsom stole the road money.

    As an aside, they put up all sorts of cutesy “your tax dollars at work fixing the roads” signs. They just disappeared off all the streets. Before Newsom stole the money they prettified a 3-5 mile stretch of street I’m familiar with: resurfaced, relined, glued down lane reflectors. The local city council gutted it with trenches the following month. I think they were re-lining old piping, as the old pipes were crumbling into dust and starting to create sinkholes.

    Thanks, Tom!

    Drudge has been, to me, an aggregator whose sources are the old school media. If you understand: all the news they print is anti-Trump. It’s just that Drudge had a way of showing inconsistencies and ironies in order to expose the lack of merit in these “news” sites.

    However, his editing has gradually gone over to what amounts to some soft and some hard criticisms of Trump. I’m good with that – I want the criticisms. Spending up: bad. Tax receipts up: bad. Wall: lagging.

    However, what is needed is an honest balance of the state of the nation and the world. Drudge is not the arbiter of conservatism.

    Hey Gerard,

    I do not remember you writing about your escape from Paradise. I’ve read some harrowing stories from others. Were you just paying attention and hit the road before the crowds?

  • Vanderleun October 30, 2019, 1:49 PM

    I was fortunate in two things that day. First, my home was towards the Skyway exit which was the quickest way out. Second, Olive, the cat I rescued two weeks before the fire woke my by being agitated and jumping onto the bed where I was sleeping. She woke me enough so I could smell and see the gathering smoke outside.

    I lost two teeth on the car door getting packed to evac when I put Olive in.

    Then I was out of there and heading down the Skyway away from the fire about half an hour before things became so dire and inflamed that you had to drive through a tunnel of fire to survive.

    Cat and God saved me that day.

  • Gordon Scott October 30, 2019, 1:59 PM

    Hey, I’ve a tomcat that starts nagging at me if I don’t get into bed quickly enough. Washing my face and brushing my teeth are unnecessary, according to him. But I think Olive beats him for usefulness.

    I had not realized that wildfires are hazardous to your dentistry. That sounds like a self-injury I would commit.

  • Bunny October 30, 2019, 2:13 PM

    That poem on your back pages- “The House Dog’s Grave” by Robinson Jeffers. It’s new to me and making me cry! It’s better than Neruda’s “A Dog Has Died” or Kipling’s “The Power of the Dog.”

  • Vanderleun October 30, 2019, 2:58 PM

    Yes, Gordon, it turned out that not only did the house burn down that day but the knocking out of the teeth and cracking of two others have resulted in a dental repair that will cost up around $10,000. Dental insurance? It is to laugh. Ten grand is something I just don’t happen to have lying around after the costs of rest of this year’s rolling disaster. Right now I’ve spent the last year chewing on the right side of my mouth and hiding my smile.

    Yes indeed…. 2019 is THE YEAR THAT JUST WILL NOT END!

  • Snakepit Kansas October 31, 2019, 5:12 AM

    For news I recently subscribed to the Epoch Times. Good stuff. Great in depth articles to what you will not hear on MSM.

    Gerard, I have an idea or two that may help. It needs your cooperation. Give me a day or two and I will be in touch.
