  • US Congress reconvenes with record number of women

    Third world societies have two things in common:

    1. They are highly individualistic. Individualism means “me first” instead of having an order larger than the individual like a nation, purpose, culture, values, beliefs, standards, and hierarchy. Third world societies are divided only by level of wealth and tend to have an “anything goes” standard of behavior, resulting in people who are operatively oblivious to events around them that do not concern their immediate self-interest.
    2. They tend to be matriarchal. Matriarchies mean that the women run the show, and the men basically do nothing except fight, so that the men who remain are physically the strongest. We see this pattern also in nature with species like lions, where the girl lions hunt and the boy lions basically defend the pride and mate. When order breaks down, you need men mostly to defend against other men.

    In America, this shows us that men are dropping out and heading toward the macho role common among fallen societies. They have given up on The System because it rewards those who are obedient, not those who fix actual real-world problems. This starts in schools, where the Baby Boomer Leftists (BBLs) applied the same techniques that they used on colleges to make elementary, middle, and high schools into indoctrination camps, with media parroting the same message.

  • Behind the El Chapo trial: what’s been left unsaid in a New York courtroom

    If you wondered how corrupt America was under Barack Obama, the trial of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman provides potent fodder, since testimony concerning the hundreds of millions of dollars flowing into America, including Washington, D.C., as weapons from the “Fast and Furious” program flowed south, has been prohibited. Who is really on trial here, El Chapo or America?

  • Cargo Ship Carrying 3,500 Nissan Cars Ablaze and Adrift in the Pacific Ocean

    We used to make decent cars in the US, but then unions got involved. They could strike and shut down our industry, and demanded absurd wages. This caused industry to cut “unnecessary” costs in cars in order to stay profitable against the threat of foreign imports. It also drove away anyone who could escape. The crazies had taken over yet another good thing. Under additional layers of bureaucracy, bloat, and of course a need to simplify and make cheaper the cars themselves, American industry fell apart. Japanese imports arrived and we all bought them because we were tired of taking our cars to the shop every month. Now many of our cars are imports. If we simply removed legal protections from unions, this would not happen. The thing about unions is that, in addition to rewarding the incompetent and penalizing the competent among the workers, they raise costs with zero reward. You do not get better cars; in fact, you get worse ones, because union rules mean that workers are obligated to do very little and are penalizing for noticing or fixing anything outside of their job description. Instead, your cars cost more to make and fall in quality, so eventually a competitor arrives who crushes you. Lee Iaococca found a solution: buy up overseas companies and have them make most of the car, then ship those engines, drivetrains, bodies, and panels here for assembly. This meant that the American worker did very little and so fewer of them were needed, and that put the fear into the unions, who stopped being quite so aggressive because they saw the writing on the wall. Imagine if we could do the same by simply opening another plant in America, making union membership illicit according to the employment contracts there, and passing on all those savings to the consumers while hiring people who actually wanted to do a good job instead of people looking for an easy lazy workplace.

  • Reward grows to $100,000 in hunt for killer of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes as investigators look for links to other shootings

    To the white guy driving around and shooting African-Americans, please stop. This is not helping. Our opposition is to diversity, not minorities. Minorities are great, but every population needs its own homeland. In America, the population is the founding Western European group — English, Germans, Scots, Dutch, Scandinavians, and some northern French — and minorities are here because of our insane policy of diversity. Work to end civil rights, affirmative action, and diversity policies. Murdering random minority people will not help, and in fact will counteract this as the voters feel empathic sadness (a form of feeling self-important) about these killings.

  • Arrest of ‘Yellow Vest’ leader sparks outcry in France

    Governments are terrified because these protests are spreading and they are non-ideological. That is, they are not aligned with one side or another, but simply pointing out that life in the West has become too expensive. Those of us on the Right know that this is because much as the Soviet Union failed, tax-and-spend wealth transfer programs — the backbone of social democracy and socialism — penalize the productive and subsidize the unproductive, which creates more of the latter. They also demoralize anyone competent because they know that their contributions will not be acknowledged, and instead, they will simply be made into slaves laboring away to subsidize more useless people. As a result, after awhile, everyone is like a union worker: they do the minimum, ignore obvious problems, falsify paperwork, and then go off to drink away their sorrows. Socialism does not work because egalitarianism does not work because, in the name of the individual, it destroys promising individuals in order to promote those without particular ability. The “yellow vests” have no idea what they have kicked off, but it is the sound of moderate Leftism (social democracy, Democrats) joining Communism and National Socialism in the dustbin of history.

  • How Having A Name That No One Can Pronounce Taught Me Who I Really Am

    Cuckservatives and other denialists adore “assimilation,” or the idea that people will come here and go into a factory labeled TRUE MURRICAN PRODUCTION. This will stamp them with our Constitution, values, laws, economic system, and history, and they will emerge as different-colored versions of the founding fathers and the Anglo-Saxon system that produced them. This turns out not to be true because people like their origins and find meaning in them, but also because it requires them to deny their own genetic background and inclinations derived from it. Yes, we can temporarily indoctrinate them into being “like us,” but over time, they will revert, if for no other reason because they want identity and some understanding of who they are. Assimilation turns out to be sadistic and controlling, the exact opposite of “freedom” and “liberty” or whatever the blind idiot cucks are claiming today.

  • Top doctor’s chilling claim: The NHS kills off 130,000 elderly patients every year

    The Left complained when Walmart used welfare payments as an excuse to pay its workers less since those workers would also receive compensation from the government for having low wages, but does the Left object when citizens do the same? If you make medical care free, people rely on it instead of taking steps to keep themselves healthy. Anything that is free becomes used to offload costs from the individual and pass them on to society. For this reason, socialized medicine systems all find themselves with more demand than they can afford to meet; for that reason, all of them engage in some behavior to reduce costs by cutting out patients like long wait times, delaying crucial procedures, and in the UK, sticking any patient over 65 on a care regimen designed for the terminally ill. We cannot afford socialized medicine and we never could, but citizens like it because it enables them to be irresponsible — for example, obesity or alcoholism — and make government pay for it.

  • Police refute claims of far-right patrols after migrant attacks

    After migrants attack Germans, a far-Right group begins marching around the streets to discourage crime. The politicians immediately talk about how vigilantes will be punished. However, vigilantes are those who seek revenge, and this far-Right group is merely seeking to avoid future crimes, so clearly this is more agitation by the Left to smash down anyone who notices that its diversity policies are failing in England, France, Germany, America, Sweden, and anywhere else stupid enough to adopt them.

  • ‘Black Girl Magic’: 17 black female judges elected Texas county swear in, make history

    Houston, which is only about 23% white, recently voted out its Republican judges and replaced them with minorities. Civic nationalists are merely apologists for the failure of diversity. In reality, people vote for those from their group or a group allied with their group, and all minority groups are allied against the white, conservative, and traditional American people.

  • An exploding meteor may have wiped out ancient Dead Sea communities

    While we bicker like children over how to redistribute income so that everyone stops complaining, we have no idea how long our civilization has. We need to get our act together and get into space, or one wayward meteor could end our species. And what will they put on that epitaph, we might ask? “They had socialized medicine” or “The longstanding injustices of racial inequality were cured with affirmative action” or maybe even “Now that everyone is vegan and transgender, we will finally have peace”? The visiting aliens who come to gawk at our dying civilization will probably not even bother. They are more interested in the winners at the game of cosmic survival, not the losers, except for academic curiosity of course.

  • Gaming worth more than video and music combined

    Conservatives tend to look at what the masses are doing, correctly note that it is debasing activity, and then cede the field which allows those media to become propaganda organs for influencing the next generation. They did it with rock ‘n roll, essentially allowing it to become a mouthpiece for the Communist Party, and then did it with movies, books, and even the public internet. When people like ourselves spoke up about the importance of defending gaming against Leftist censorship, most conservatives sat back and self-rationalized their inaction as some kind of victory. Now, as it turns out, the wisdom of GamerGate stands revealed: this is a huge industry and an activity in which lots of young people participate, and may have replaced movies and music as the focus of formative culture. We cannot cede this field just like we cannot cede social media.

  • Germany’s Leading Magazine Published Falsehoods About American Life

    Europeans love to hate Americans because Europeans have less to brag about these days. While Europe pursued socialism, America pursued free markets, and turned out to be way ahead of everyone else. Now, America provides for the defense of Europe, which makes Europeans resent us just as colonized people resented colonialism. For that reason, a huge market for sneering and smug anti-Americanism exists in Europe, which serves merely to conceal the ugly truth, which is that Old Europe now has a McDonald’s on every street corner and signs in English because their people in private prefer the luxuries of consumerism. Instead of hating America, hate what you see of America, which is the consumerism brought on by a capitalist economy saddled with a diversity welfare state and a tax-and-spend wealth transfer circular Ponzi scheme. Then, Europeans, consider the really sad truth: you are on the same model. That is why you hate America: it reveals the weakness in yourselves. Please do not take this as Europe-bashing because such things are pointless, but instead, let us all speak to the actual enemy, which is not capitalism — the one working economic system — nor America, but what democracy does to our nations.

  • British Jews look to Germany for Brexit ‘insurance policy’

    Who is to blame for the Holocaust? Perhaps the Germans share blame. After all, the rest of the world would not simply signal a willingness to Hitler to take his refugees. The Eastern Europeans participated gleefully and without Germany instructing them to do so. The Jews are not blameless; as foreigners, they chose to participate in the politics of their host countries, which because they were outsiders, made them a target, especially when so many of them were involved with the Communist Party. This is why most of the German killings occurred only when it was too costly to maintain the Jewish population in prisons and the utility of that population as slave labor to build armaments had been demonstrated to be low. Had Britain offered, for example, to allow Jews safe passage to what was then called Palestine, the Holocaust would never have happened. Let us learn from the past: Jews moving back to Germany because they support the EU is not a solution to the problem of diversity. Diversity cannot create, and can only destroy, which means that the only option is to end it and repatriate everyone but the native founding groups of these countries.

  • Danish PM laments ‘break-up’ of peaceful world in New Year speech

    Democracy makes you stupid because it forces a separation between cause and effect since the only actual cause becomes assumed to be government carrying out “the will of The People™” even though really a different plurality carries each election. This separation induces people to be unable to understand cause and effect logic at all. This Danish PM believes that the cause of our disunity is a lack of unity, mainly because “too many people feel left out or keep themselves on the outside.” What he does not understand is that the globalist world order collapsed just as the Soviet Union did, from lack of internal consistency and any drive toward unity other than that of power and financial reward. That works at first, but over time, people realize they are living a hollow existence and mentally check out of the system, which causing it to begin to break down. We were living in a bubble and like most bubbles, because it was not sustainable, it had to keep itself in power through changing who we are and conditioning us to be blind ideological robots who cling to it. Now that the bubble has popped, we are falling, looking for something new to grab as we plummet downward toward what seems like an infinite spreading abyss.

  • Migrant gang ‘leave 12 people aged 13-42 injured after carrying out random attacks and hurling racist abuse’

    Teenagers from “Iran, Syria and Afghanistan” attacked random people. Diversity does not work because each group needs to assert its identity, which makes the nation-state that they share a zero-sum game, meaning that only one can win. This creates perpetual low-grade ethnic warfare; minority groups confine it to crime and passive-aggression at first because they are protected by law, but once they have enough numbers, they will simply take over from the people made stupid by democracy, egalitarianism, and utilitarianism to the point that they do not defend themselves.

  • Human waste, champagne bottles, even a prom dress: Joshua Tree and Yosemite get trashed as shutdown continues

    What kind of society do you live in when not having law enforcement everywhere results in any pleasant space being filled with trash and feces? It sounds like what happened in San Francisco or happens in Mexico. When Leftists take over, people become dependent on government and the idea that they can externalize the cost of their actions, or pass them on to society while reaping the benefits of not having to take on the cost themselves. Even in something as simple as throwing away their trash, people assume that someone else will take care of it because that is the only model that Leftism offers us: an equal herd, each personal individualistically doing whatever they want, leaving behind giant heaps of waste for government to clean up, shooting any dissenters who fail to comply.

  • Apple is basically blaming Trump’s trade war for disappointing iPhone sales in China

    People like to think in categories based on a single factor, like the color red, as if those categories exist in a timeless state apart from other influences. In other words, we think like laboratory experiments in a world that is formed of the emergent properties of the interaction of things rather than those things acting independently on their own. Context matters more than substance; structure matters more than material. Through this thinking, we tend to deny that every activity we see around us runs through an arc. It starts out one way, then changes the world, then responds to those changes, and eventually becomes part of the background. The same is true of technology: the automobile in 1890 was cutting edge, but by 1930 was familiar although expensive, and in 1960 became commonplace. The public internet has run through the same arc to the point where people now expect it to be like phone service in the 1980s where you pay a monthly bill and can use it without limits, except for those crushing long-distance calls of course. The same is true of cellular phones. When they were new, and new features of great import were coming out, people would pay lots of money for them, but now the difference between the cheapest cell phone and the most expensive is not much. This means that the novelty of the trend has gone and so the trend has run its course, and now cell phones are just another gadget that we expect to be there and be working at a relatively low cost. That is the problem with the second half of the arc: people no longer want to spend top dollar for something that is an everyday object and not dramatically different from the others. Computers now are simply faster versions of the ones we had in 2007; cellular phones are faster, bigger, and flatter versions of the same, but do basically the same things. This means that our internet business based on selling everyone a smartphone, getting them on social media, and then showing them lots of video advertisements has crashed. The arc can only restart itself when people find a way to do these things better or cheaper, but in the absence of those, cell phones have become the drip coffee makers of the 2010s. This means that a good deal of our economy, especially the Big Tech firms, is massively over-valued, and a market correction is coming.

  • Chinese president warns Taiwan that independence would be a disaster

    This is typical Leftist projection: Taiwan is independent from the Communist-capitalist hybrid that rules mainland China, and wants to stay that way, but China has re-styled Taiwanese independence as aggression against Chinese unity. In the broader picture, China and Russia are both broke and each has access to information about their economies that has not been released in the West nor apparently guessed by our sinecured information services. They know that they cannot hold their people together with the promise of the Western-style consumer lifestyle for which the citizens of the Soviet Union gave up Communism, so they must be united with war. This is the “Napoleonic Arc” through which every Leftist society goes; when ideology fails to unite the group, and they run out of money for bribes through “free” social benefits programs, there must be an enemy and total mobilization because only then do the farms keep producing, the factories churning, and the trains running roughly on time. We have learned from history: the Soviet Union fell, and National Socialism and Fascism likely would have fallen, because these systems are internally incompatible with reality on the level of mathematics, themodynamics, and information science. They are incoherent according to the patterns that we observe in reality. As a result, the American tendency has been to sit back and focus on our prosperity and power while inducing other parties to over-spend in order to meet us, then watch them fail, and only then engage them and clean up by destroying whatever they have produced. China wants to strike while it still has its economic dirty secrets covered up, and engage the United States in a huge war that China hopes to win by having more men and materiél as they did in Vietnam and Korea. If America manages to avoid being dragged into that conflict, probably by nipping it in the bud with decisive action early on, China and its ally Russia will be forced to resolve their conflicts internally or invade a third party.

  • The State of Government Debt Around the World

    It turns out that no one can afford those entitlements programs. The voters love them because they fear a society that has become predatory, since without aristocrats to guide it, the society essentially becomes a life-support system for an economy; instead of the sane order of things, where economic activity serves the nation, the nation serves economic activity. People blame Jews for this because Jews disproportionately succeed at this because the same happened to them long ago, and set the stage for their conquest by the Romans. In reality, Jews were outsiders who appeared in European society because European society had stagnated and abandoned any sense of leadership, and was leaning instead toward what came about during The Enlightenment,™ a reliance on individualism instead of leaning toward a transcendental order to all reality. You can live for yourself, live for the group, or live for something greater than either which is found in both external reality and the human intuition when disciplined toward honesty, but only a few see that. Modern conservatives emphasize straight individualism, the Left demands individualism through collectivism, and only a few of us trads want something transcendental. Until we get that “something transcendental,” we are going to be creating economic systems to support the individual or the group, and these will always lead us into fear. The natural response to that fear from people who can no longer simply move to the woods and set up a farm or start hunting is to demand that “society” help them out, so voters cling to the entitlements that raise their costs, pare off their best people, and shatter any semblance of social order. They also make societies go just as bankrupt as the Soviet Union.

  • Reparations for slavery are not about punishing children for parents’ sins

    Leftist arguing for reparations for slavery and other ills walks into an argumentative trap: if these actions were so bad that we must take from the descendants of those who had zero agency in committing them, but presumably inherited benefits from them, then it also makes sense to simply correct the ill by repatriating those involved. Otherwise, the wound continues for as long as “inequality” does, which causes us to realize that slavery and other uses of third world populations occurred because those populations were less organized, wealthy, competent, and aware than we were, so they will always be “unequal” because of genetics. For that reason, we should restore them to the state they were in before we came in, and give them some extra funds to repair any historical ills, but then snip the problem off at the bud. We cannot leave open wounds.

  • Capturing the Beautiful Bond Between Mongolian Eagle Keepers and Their Birds

    Most relevant part: “I hope that people will think about their native traditions. We need to respect our ancestors and continuing to preserve traditional culture definitely makes our lives better and filled with purpose.”
