Karl Marx was a special and caring human being who wanted all people to be equal. He never had a racist bone in his body, nor an impolite idea in his head. Oh, Wait… From Mr. Runes’ Into…
These lines which I am quoting are not from the pen of Adolf Hitler or Colonel Nasser, but verbatim translations from the German original of the Father of Socialism, Karl Marx:
“Money is the zealous one God of Israel, beside which no other God may stand. Money degrades all the gods of mankind and turns them into commodities. Money is the universal and self-constituted value set upon all things. It has therefore robbed the whole world, [Page vi] of both nature and man, of its original value. Money is the essence of man’s life and work, which have become alienated from him: this alien monster rules him and he worships it.”
“The God of the Jews has become secularized and is now a worldly God. The bill of exchange is the Jew’s real God. His God is the illusory bill of exchange.”
“What is the foundation of the Jew in our world? Practical necessity, private advantage.”
“What is the object of the Jew’s worship in this world? Usury. What is his worldly God? Money.”
“Very well then: emancipation from usury and money, that is, from practical, real Judaism, would constitute the emancipation of our time.”
Back in 1970, here’s what !SCIENCE! predicted would happen to our environment.
“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”
— Harvard biologist George Wald
“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,”
— Denis Hayes, Chief organizer for Earth Day
“We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation.”
— Washington University biologist Barry Commoner
“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100–200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years. … Most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born. … [By 1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.”
— Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich
“Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions …. By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.”
— North Texas State University professor Peter Gunter
“In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution… by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half.”
— Life magazine
“At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable. … By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate … that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, ‘Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, ‘I am very sorry, there isn’t any. … The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.”
— Kenneth Watt
Earth Day genuinely represents the day we finished killing legitimate science and chucking it into the ground.
Al Gore and An Inconvenient Truth. Ok, you can stop laughing now. There are apparently several inconvenient truths regarding the man who has been previously as a “crazed sex poodle.” Here are some of his exceedingly inconvenient untruths listed below.
Here are nine of Al Gore’s guilt/fear producing predictions that never materialized.
Rising Sea Levels Threatening Coastal Cities and Islands
New Ice Age in Europe
South Sahara Drying Up
Massive Flooding in China and India
Drastic Loss of Arctic Ice
Polar Bear Extinction
Dramatic Rise in Global Temperature Due to CO2
Katrina a Foreshadow of Future Increase in Hurricanes
Laugh all you want at Polar Bore Al. His hokum attracted over $2.5Bn in investment money. He skimmed over $100M personally. Earth Day genuinely represents the day we finished killing legitimate science and chucking it into the ground.
On Thursday after the release of the Mueller Report, New York Post reporter Nikki Schwab noted that the Marine Corp musicians at a White House event played “Edelweiss.” New York Times reporter and longtime Trump critic Maggie Haberman responded on Twitter: “Does anyone…at the White House understand the significance of that song?”
Why sure. Bad Orange Man probably groked this at an early age, given that the song was featured in “The Sound of Music.” And there’s more…
Far from being an ode to oppression, the song in fact celebrates the beauty and authentic nationalism of Austria juxtaposed against the foreign tyranny of Nazi Germany. It was written by two legendary American Jewish composers, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, for Broadway’s “The Sound of Music” in 1959 and made especially famous by the Christopher Plummer rendition in the 1965 Academy Award-winning movie version. Perhaps we should ask Maggie Haberman if she knows that Paul McCartney was in a band before Wings?
Sorry, but “Edelweiss” is not the “Horst Wessel Song.” And let’s be honest here. Most modern Amerikan journalists are not particularly bright.
It is not just the journalists. Their Engrish Teechurs and princeples have sum trubbles as well.
Take Etowah City School Principal Brian Trammell, for instance.
Trammell’s email to his teachers and other staff members this month begging them to lobby against school vouchers contained almost a dozen grammatical errors.
Examples, with The Tennessee Star’s corrections in parenthesis:
• “Yesterday Senate Bill 795(,) the Education Savings Account Bill (the alternative name for Vouchers to make the general public feel good about the Bill) (,) passed the Senate Education Sub-Committee.”
• “The response from our Senators and Representatives will be that it will not effect (affect) McMinn County/Etowah City School students and families, but it will.”
• “Once (a) pandoras (Pandora’s) box is open, parent groups, such as, (no comma needed) Homeschool parents start suing (comma needed) wanting the same “benefit” in every district in the state.”
• “What is being communicated is ‘the folks in favor of this Bill are out numbering (outnumbering) the opposition.”
• “If you have time(,) please email Representative Mark Cochran and thank him for standing up in opposition to this Bill. He is under extreme pressure from very wealthy and powerful lobbyist (lobbyists), (no comma needed), inside his Party and from folks not even from Tennessee.”
There are much better babysitters and day care centers than most local public school systems. Get your children out of there.
So Trump tells Mittens the obvious. You have to actually contest most elections to win them. Allahpundit, and I’m sure scores of other Cucks, are explaining how stating obvious truths damage Trump’s brand. Why would anyone actually whine on behalf of Mitt Romney? I don’t get it. He’s not exactly scuffling for dimes. A Right that is too afraid of Liberals to actually criticize them in a competitive election is not of much use to conservative citizens who want an alternative to installment-plan socialism.
In a closed-door meeting with Iranian-American community leaders last Monday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the Trump administration is “not going to do a military exercise inside Iran” to expedite a regime change, according to three sources who were in the room, including one who took detailed contemporaneous notes and shared them with me.
Good. Keep us out of the Middle East. Make the Middle East deal with the Middle East. Iran has issues with Israel. Let Iran and Israel sort them out. We reserve the right to put them both in the closet to settle their affairs, and then club the survivor to death with a Louisville Slugger.
This was far more of a feeding frenzy than a journalistic investigation. If myth/fable #1 didn’t work, they just all went on to the next one; without any mention of the initial discarded theory. This behavior indicates that they already “knew” the facts here. They just needed “evidence” that would allow them to sell it to the public. This isn’t journalism. It is advertising work.
According to The Not-So-Official History of Blogging, you cannot have “Moonbats” without George Monbiot. He was the loon that started the meme. Just by being himself. Just by flying over the coo-koo’s nest and beyond the bounds of Earth’s atmosphere. He sends us Erff Day greetings below.
The easy things we need to change, Monbiot said, are to end air travel flying and cease consumption of meat…..
But Monbiot was just getting started. Next up, he took us down the intellectual river, into the heart of activist darkness. “We have to overthrow this system which is eating the planet: perpetual growth,” Monbiot declared. And the writer pulled no punches. Annual economic growth targets of 3% represent “madness,” he said. The columnist reached his crescendo. “We can’t do it by just pitting around at the margins of the problem; we’ve got to go straight to the heart of capitalism and overthrow it.“
His second set of ideas aren’t necessarily bad. It’s how he would do it. Imposing Socialism or Communism will not clean up the planet. It will get rid of the wrong people and the wrong activities. Getting rid of subsidized poverty would get rid of a lot of unnecessary production that chews through natural resources. It would also chew through Moonbat’s readership and popularity. So no, we’ll just confiscate everyone’s steak while still handing the hordes all the free cheeseburgers they desire. The only people environmentalists like Monbiot really want to ban are the ones that make the planet legitimately function.
Once the #SJWs get you knuckled under, the hits keep coming. Back when Starbucks bathrooms were controlled, they didn’t have cretinous losers shooting up inside them. Now, they have to put in needle disposal boxes so that the trash disposal crew doesn’t get AIDS blood injected into them by accidental sticks. It would have been easier just to tell the Left no.
In a Fox News op-ed, Gregory T. Angelo, a former director of the gay Republican group Log Cabin Republicans, argued that many of the harshest critiques against Pence—among them, that he has supported so-called “conversion therapy” in the past—are inaccurate. In an appearance on the network, Ambassador Ric Grennell compared Buttigieg’s characterizations of Pence’s record to a “hate hoax along the lines of Jussie Smollett.” “I think this is a total hate hoax and I think it’s outrageous,” Grennell said on Thursday. “The gay community used to be the community pushing tolerance and diversity. We were the ones that were saying everyone should be able to love and accept each other. Now suddenly there’s a whole community of people demanding that we all think alike.”
Mayor Buttplug has triggered a different set of people than he intended to. Mike Pence has largely ignored Mayor Buttplug. Homosexuals who are otherwise conservative in how they view the world are mortified. Two things are at work here.
1) Closeted, discrete homosexuals are usually appalled by gay exhibitionists. The same way married, upright straights are pretty much grossed out by total sluts of either gender. Hedonism and recklessness, in either word or deed, will tend to breed disgust in more measured individuals. Mayor Buttplug’s calculated rhetoric is exhibitionist in its deliberate polemic.
2) Grennell is on to something that scares him. If people like Buttigieg push hard enough against traditional sensitivities, then there really could be an anti-gay backlash. People are getting a little tired of things like bathroom wars and gender-fluid education in public schools. Amerikan society is a long way from throwing gays off of roofs like ISIS did in Ninevah. Yet the grumbling over LGBTers deliberately trying to wreck traditional pieties is getting louder. As more people like Grennell sense this and get nervous, more closeted and calmer homosexuals will begin to agitate against the more obnoxious radicals.
Only 9% of Ukranians believed in their government. They considered it a joke. They’ve now elected a comedian.
In a popular Ukrainian TV series, comedian Volodymyr Zelenskiy played a president who is scrupulously honest and outwits crooked lawmakers and shadowy businessmen who try to stand in his way. Zelenskiy’s character in the show “Servant of the People” was loved by Ukrainians fed up with how their country had been governed since independence in 1991. On Sunday, they turned fantasy into reality after voters elected Zelenskiy by a landslide, according to exit polls, thrusting an actor with no prior political experience and few detailed policies into the presidency of a country at war.
It will be interesting to see if he could be any worse than they current Ukranian leadership. Politics is getting more like showbiz everyday. Which brings up an interesting question: Have you seen any good movies lately? Have you seen very many good democratic leaders?
AOC, Talib, Omar and Fat Brother Nadler will grow tired of being MittRomneyed by Nancy Pelosi. She is navigating a minefield. On less contentious issues like non-binding budget resolutions, she cannot get to a concensus. This impeachment thing is like the Far Left’s Ring of Power. If Ilhan Omar is analogous to Golem; (sorry, Fruedian Slip), then impeachment is her precious. If the Dems go over the Crack of Doom on this, we get a few more years to plot our individual futures prior to the demise of The West.
Picking the most powerful person in the world. That’s all you help do when you vote. Why would that require more judgement than you’d expect from say, Lester The Molester? Well, for one thing, people with judgement aren’t prone to voting for Bernie Sanders. That explains why he got his start as Mayor of Burlington. If this is a good idea, according to an experienced US Senator; then it provides a nice insight as to why Octavian stealth-abolished the Roman Senate back in 27 B.C.
No swirl advocate is openly trying to breed you out. No intelligent and strategically competent Open Borders advocate wants to openly replace your population cohort. No reasonably sane member of Aetheistkult openly denounces Jesus as a demon incarnate. So what Bruce Charlton offers here isn’t to inconsistent with how evil people termite through institutions, cultures and ideologies they want to see fall over.
The campaign is being conducted more like a secret police activity than a war. In other words, the GLMC works by totalitarian state terrorism not war – that is by inducing uncertainty, encouraging unfocused fear and suspicion – as a permanent state of affairs. The GLMC have won the war, and are now engaged in the incremental pacification of the world. Christians are permeating the world; and the objective is to convert all Christians to the leftist-materialist ideology.
Sun Tzu would be proud. A march through the institutions all the way to The Vatican allows them to mop up the last few hold-outs. C.S. Lewis read the writing on the wall when he predicted that the true Christian would be a guerilla fighter in enemy territory. Charlton has hope. Destroy the belief in their institutions and their march is a walk to nowhere. It’s mental and emotional terrain where Charlton believes the materialists to be vulnerable. Perhaps Jesus just needs to inspire us to better meme.
As part of Operation Just Cuz, I present The Sound of Music. Just ‘cuz Maggie Haberman needs an introduction to all of the lovely people she just got through accusing of being Nazi Sympathizers….
