Under the Boat

“Strait times come in history. Our time is such a time, millennial, full of fast currents, tossing, eddied, dangerous to pass through.” — John Fowles, “The Aristos”

The thing is under the boat. The crew suspects as much but can’t know for sure exactly where the thing is. They won’t know where the thing is until it rises, inevitable and unstoppable, from the deep state directly beneath them.

Can you feel it lurking just under the surface? I can and I think you can as well. The Greeks knew it as “Nemesis.” Melville’s Ahab knew it as “thou damned whale” and he struck at it from Hell’s heart. Unperturbed it gathered him up and took him down. Then it took the boat and after that the ship. All save one followed.

“Now small fowls flew screaming over the yet yawning gulf; a sullen white surf beat against its steep sides; then all collapsed, and the great shroud of the sea rolled on as it rolled five thousand years ago.”


The thing beneath the surface of America’s life is still there and all signs point to its breaching soon. Exactly where and exactly how are still unknown, but soon.

I feel the thing beneath the boat, and I think   ever growing millions feel it as well. We do not feel good about it and what it augers for the near and far future.

The thing is large and it’s under the boat and it is beginning to rise. The crew is confused and flailing about.   It is commonly said, “A rising tide lifts all boats.” True enough, but the rising of Leviathan can break the spine of our boat and send it down into the Maelstrom.

And the thing is under the boat.

Raconteur Report: When Is It Time To Shoot The Bastards? For reference, the NRA is twice the size of just our current military. The number of gun owners is ten times the size of the largest army we ever fielded, which won world wars against three nations on three continents in 4 1/2 years. And all those pretty toys and shiny bases depend for every waking moment on the sufferance and goodwill of the people who surround them 24/7/365, for everything from gasoline to power for the lights to food for the chow hall.
At the end of the day, their chance against a contrary populace would be that of the convict against the noose; they would die kicking at air, wishing they’d made other life choices were they to turn on the nation’s populace, and no small number would shoot the leaders who tried. You can get away with a Bonus Army/Manzanar/Kent State/Waco incident about once every quarter century; after that, the folks will shoot you coming out of the latrine, proactively, and you’re done. The .mil knows this in their marrow. The Progtards are going to find out that if push comes to shove, they’ll be the ones on the menu.

    It’s called a “Shitty Deal”.

    The whining sissy’s squeal, “You think you’re puny assault weapon is gonna take out a army tank, redneck neanderthal?”

    “Just sit back and wait til the smell of their own shit makes them emerge, then headshots for everyone, from that puny assault weapon.”

    Course, a tank only has guns on one side, so it’s fairly easy to creep up it’s blind side and set it on fire. You know what screamin’ hot flesh boiling in it’s own broth smells like? If they don’t know already which side is the right side they will learn the hard way once and for all.

    I often wonder if this “the thing is under the boat,” i.e. angst, many are experiencing is not simply the result of the propaganda being fed to them via the MSM? I do not know. I do know that many Americans’ attention spans are severely limited, are they’re eyes are not on the ball. How then can one combat this “the thing is under the boat” angst? The best suggestion, in my opinion, is to at a minimum do a bit of preparing for if “the thing under the boat” does indeed breach, and limit your intake of the propaganda put out by the MSM. Predictions of doom are difficult to nail down to a specific date and time. The one breach of the thing under the boat which I think is most realistic, and could kick things off to another round of “recent unpleasantness,” is if Leviathan attempts to come for the guns here in the U.S.A. We’ll see.

    Re: ” Under the Boat ”
    You nailed it with this one. When I survey the news, things are looking more and more like a disturbed anthill. People are scrambling back and forth. The Managerial Class seems to actually believe that if they can just prevent people from communicating, the problems of the MC will disappear. The younger generations are weak and clueless, with such narrow comfort zones it will be easy for them to be pushed out.

    My own state feels like it is getting ready to return to its Grapes of Wrath default. Only massive Federal employment is keeping it afloat.

    I wish the other shoe would drop so we could get on with it, one way or the other.

    When the masses elected a known Marxist/Communist, foreign born and bred – Barry S, to be the president of the USA, I new then that the Globalist-Soros conspiracy to take destroy the country and take over our schools was successful. School boards, administrations, teachers, the PTA, all pushing the Marxist religion on the country.
    And these useful idiots do not realize that the first to be “eliminated” , that Bill Ayers infamous quote about what he was going to do to those parents and teachers who would not convert to the vile communist religion – it will be these stupid people that helped them.

    “The check’s in the mail.”
    “I promise I’ll pull out.”
    “The Republicans are not the same as the Democrats.”

    Which reminds me of the two biggest lies in Poland:

    “The check is in my mouth,” and
    “I won’t come in your mailbox.”
