Trump Fakes Out North Korea, And The Norks Blink

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018

While the media continues its ill-advised campaign of preaching to the choir by offering what are essentially panic stories every day about the Trump presidency, the man himself continues to achieve results.

Despite heavy criticism for his tweet that shamed North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, Trump has achieved the desired result: shattering the confidence of the Kim regime.

“North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times,'” Trump tweeted. “Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”

In other words, Kim threatened the world and Trump laughed at him, which seems like it would push the world closer to nuclear war but may have done the opposite. Instead of feeling a sense of power over the United States, now Kim is on the defensive.

As it turns out, deeds speak louder than words, and North Korea’s response has been to blink, which we can see because they re-opened the hotline to the South which is used, ironically, to avoid wars that might erupt along the DMZ.

The media narrative is blatantly wrong to the point of negligence, and given the profit motive behind pacifying the media sheep who soak up the output of our newspapers, probably simply fraudulent reporting. Trump has restored a masculine American foreign policy that does not seek to pacify, but makes reasoned demands and stands behind them, creating world stability.

Why The Populist Wave Is Thriving

Thursday, December 28th, 2017

The magician explains:

Rubes, we call them. They file in, dirty shirts and dark-circled eyes. Forty hours of work, forty hours of screaming wives and children, the rest of the time in the pub or watching the blue light at night. If they were smart once, they are not any longer. You have to count on them being basically their reptile brains plus a few social responses. Civilization has dulled their minds. Think of lab rats running a maze, or cage monkeys in a laboratory hitting the right lever to get the peanut. That is what jobs and socializing do to most people. Ninety percent of them are one hundred percent stomach, and they are not particularly good but their money spends just the same. The ten percent who are good will probably not show up. So you are dealing with opportunists, which means they are greedy for spectacle, because they keep themselves going by stringing along little rewards. Get through work, go to pub. Avoid beating child, get an extra hour of television, or something. Opportunists are born marks. They come at you with their need on their sleeves. If you make yourself look like whatever dream they are chasing, they will fool themselves. This is the trick to the trick: distract them and get something done in the background. Look right at the hand that is doing the least useful thing. If you are going to pull a rabbit out of a hat, or a dove out of the ear of a small child, then you want to make sure that your right hand — they will assume this is the one doing the important stuff, because with almost everyone else, it is — is waving around and flinging a scarf about, or even better, setting something on fire. Make your body tilt toward that hand, look at it like your first love, and thrust it in their faces like it is begging for attention. Their eyes will follow it like flies watching a piece of buttered toast fly across the sun. Your left hand, in the darkness, will be preparing the trick, but they will not see it because you fit into the pattern they were expecting. Your goal is to dismantle their perceptual apparatus. This way, the trick is always a surprise and the punchline is always new.

People are confused about the future of the Alt Right especially as relative to the ongoing struggles and triumphs of Donald Trump. Their concerns can be addressed by a simple formula: the Alt Right is a cultural wave, and those who are riding it to victory will act indirectly against the current power structure, not try to attack threats or failures directly.

Conservatives have for too long functioned as janitors. The Left does crazy stuff for awhile; conservatives rush in and try to fix everything before the Left takes over again, and this just keeps the Leftist system afloat. At some point, conservatives start to regard themselves as having this role, and then the role shapes them. They stop acting for conservatism and become those who apply band-aids and mop the floors and nothing more.

Donald Trump, Nigel Farage, and Heinz-Christian Strache in Austria are bringing a new approach: instead of trying to fix society, conservatives should act in self-interest as if we were a breakaway society waiting to happen. Our first goal must be like that of the Leftists; we seek to cripple our opposition by removing the structures that keep them in power. After all, if we do that, we can then change anything we want, but if we do not do that, any changes we make will be co-opted by the Left, making us their servants.

The power structure of the Left is based on a coalition of college students, single women, minorities, and neurotics. If we are Machiavellian about this, we seek to remove the power of those people. Donald Trump, no fool but accustomed to playing the fool from his time on “reality television,” has steadily reduced Leftist power so that he can at least get to a neutral state in American politics where we consider what works and what does not, instead of what fits our ideological profile:

According to Pew Research Center, 58 percent of Republicans and conservative independents believe colleges are having a negative impact on the country.

…Ninety-one percent of Trump’s nominees to federal courts are white, and 81 percent are male, according to an AP analysis.

What do we see here? Trump is not a Republican; he is a… well, let us call him a functionalist. He respects what works and sees everything else as a parasite, which is not an unreasonable outlook on a species more dedicated to lotteries, parties, television, posturing, and moral preening than effective action. He is replacing the nonsense people with real people.

This will not directly instantiate Alt Right goals, but it will open the door. He is clearing aside the Leftist mindlock in government and thus, allowing a much wider range of options to become possible.

He extends this to establishing stability by starving the Leftist strongholds with the new tax bill, while kicking more money back to a middle class savaged by the ludicrous Obamacare taxes:

The Trump economy—which we’ve maintained since before Election Day is the economy you get when you take President Obama’s foot off its neck—seems predisposed to remain benign through next year’s congressional election.

…The rest of the tax bill may be anticlimactic, but it broadens the standard deduction, cuts rates a bit, and slightly reduces itemized deductions, those corrupt and corrupting schemes by which Washington rewards you for redirecting your income to various lobbying interests (including state and local government).

From the Trump show we are getting steps in the direction of “good government” as that term has traditionally and reliably been understood for decades. And unless 250 years of economic thought is ready to be junked, increasing the after-tax return on business investment will lead to more investment.

High blue state taxes are no longer deductible; universities are facing new taxes on their excessive endowments; possibly graduate students will as well. This slashes a subsidy mill and replaces it with the rule of the market, namely only what is profitable will be supported. While this is not ideal, it is far better than the black abyss of ideological subsidy.

Sure, there are some seemingly dispiriting signs of the Trump administration, but when one looks beneath the surface, one sees the populist agenda: removing the influence of ideology entirely and focusing on what works.

After all, Trump is accustomed to working as a musician. He gestures with his right hand — a Russia scandal, a #BuildTheWall campaign, an accusation of a deep state fake news empire — in a way that attacks the strongest points of the Left. They react, but at the same time, his left hand is quietly undoing whatever power enables them to have strength at all.

Coincidentally, what works overlaps with the Old Right and “far right” (in our Leftist times, this means “Rightism that is mostly unmixed with Leftism”) and so is anathema to the Left. But with Strache advancing in the birthplace of Adolf Hitler, Nigel Farage upending the establishment in orthodox Leftist Britain, and Donald Trump reversing the Kennedy establishment, the future looks more than “not Left.” It appears to be heading toward sanity and, through it, a resurrection of eternal tradition and restoration of Western Civilization.

(((Trump))), Jerusalem And The Missing Intifada

Sunday, December 17th, 2017

President and Goy Wonder Donald J. Trump totally sold us out to (((¡THE BANKSTERS!))) on this one. You see, he actually recognized that place in Israel where King Solomon built his temple, Jerusalem, as the capital of Israel. The US Embassy has begun the process of moving their assets to The Holy City.

You see, this ignorant, blustering, cowboy hick of a reality television show host is certain to touch off WWIII, Jihad Edition. We would have to fight Iran, Yemen, Turkey, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and possibly even Whogivesakhrapistan all at the same time. And all because our (((Preisident))) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of (((The Bagel-Munching Sandal-Wearers))). So universal was the outrage over this craziness that a Reuters Poll of Jewish-American Pedophiles who earn at least $250K per year showed an Approve/Disapprove rating of 41/59. We could tell you the sample size and margin of error, but then we’d have to shoot you.

But seriously, President Trump has just very publicly dissed the EU, the PLO, The Royal and Magnificent Sultan of Turkey, Hamas, Hezbollah, Anti-Pope Francis , Al-CNN and countless other high-profile supporters, enablers and perpetrators of international terrorism. He quite bluntly meant to. President Trump is into sorting crap out. He has an endearing habit of taking people exactly at their word when they are obviously spewing the verbal equivalent of flatulence and feces. It’s a passive-aggressive way to call The Hipsters on their hypocrisy. Here is what The House, The Senate, and President Clinton all passed and signed off on back in 1995 when ‘‘The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995’’ overwhelmingly passed Congress.

STATEMENT OF THE POLICY OF THE UNITED STATES —

  1. Jerusalem should remain an undivided city in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group are protected;
  2. Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel; and
  3. the United States Embassy in Israel should be established in Jerusalem no later than May 31, 1999.

This, of course, was really a dog-and-pony show. The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 has been enforced about as vigorously as our immigration laws were under Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama. The act had an escape hatch whereby the POTUS could waiver moving the embassy to Jerusalem for six months. This was typically justified to give “The Peace Process” more time to work or to not inflame “The Arab Street.” Jimmy Carter started “The Peace Process” back in the late 1970s. It grinds on in 2017.

You want peace or you don’t. War is over, John Lennon lectures us, if you want it. Of course the “you” here is in reality plural. Neither of the two you’s involved in squabbles over Jerusalem spend much of their spare time during the winter wishing one another Happy Christmas. One of the parties to the ongoing conflict, The PLO, argues Israel has no legitimate right to exist as a country. It is in their foundational document that they exist to destroy it. Giving them a veto over which city in this non-country we park our diplomatic schmoes in is roughly equivalent to asking Attila, Gaiseric, or Hannibal whether we recognize Rome as the Capital of Italy.

In fact, using the peace process as a reason to delay our recognition is subtle way of making sure their will never be peace in that particular chunk of the Middle East. It’s a perverse incentive if you follow some elementary logic. Party A does not want Party B to have an internationally recognized capital city in Jerusalem. Party A is told that Party B’s desires of having Jerusalem as a capital city will be realized as soon as the peace process succeeds. What sort of drug would you have to put in Party A’s Bacon-Kabobs to ever get them to agree to any successful resolution of aforementioned peace process?

Now none of the people signing these waivers to prevent Israel from proclaiming Jerusalem as its capital are anti-semites. They all have ¡Jewish Friends! like Harvey (((Weinstein))) and Bill (((Kristol))). I’ll prove it to you. If you go to unbiased social media sites like Twitter, and type in the search term Nazi or racist, President Donald Drumpfsteinthalberg is the Number One Result. So all those people butt-hurt over Jerusalem as the capital of a Jewish Ethno-State clearly have a reasonable alternative. Perhaps we could send them all to Madagascar. I’m sure Sarah Silverman could avail herself to all the quickie aborshes she wanted over there. (((Weinstein)))? He could take his artistic frustrations out in trade.

But no! That Donald Trump has decided to get a wee bit obstreperous and actually enforce a US law about 23 years after it passed. The Arab Street has erupted in a manner reminiscent of…a boring Saturday night for the police force in Newark.

Rather than waves of protest, the waiting world got tepid statements of disapproval from otherwise-occupied Arab governments; demonstrations in the West Bank and the Gaza strip that, combined, barely put a thousand activists in the streets; and yes, four deaths: two demonstrators and two Hamas terrorists hit by an Israeli airstrike.

So why were the experts wrong? I mean aside from the fact that the story involved Trump which pretty much implies that most of them will be lying. For one thing, you don’t bring it against a man that dismisses Kim Jung Un as “Rocket Man” and dares him to pop any nuke he can develop. Unless you bring all the junk you can fit in the trunk. They can just ask ISIS or MeAgain Kelly what it’s like to get on Spanker-Claus’ Naughty List.

People are increasingly learning that when it comes to taking on Donald Trump, you need to mean business. The man unafraid to die typically wins the fight. Trump’s rather public finger in the eye to the PLO is a direct, public way of asking the Palestinians how many of their Jihadi are ready to die. The answer is that they’re willing to die another day. That happens when the US elects a President far more real than Clinton, Bush or Barack Obama.

How We Were Cursed With Comey

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Want to reach the highest levels of power in a Democracy? Gilbert and Sullivan show us how. James Comey followed the blueprint that was supposed to be satirical parody.

Jerry Pournelle reminds us how James Comey grew into the swamp gator he eventually became. Quoted in detail from “Recovery. Opinion/analysis on Comey and draining the swamp; A note on Education.” -23 May 2017.

Comey was a minor assistant US attorney in the late 90’s. He only gained power and money by being the DOJ official who “investigated” and cleared Bill Clinton of any wrong-doing in Clinton’s totally corrupt pardon (for huge payoffs) of criminal financier Marc Rich as Clinton was leaving the Presidency. This is how Comey began his career as a creature of the “swamp” years ago, as a servant of the Clintons.

Comey provided “cover” for the Clintons in their gaining incredible power and wealth after leaving office through pardoning a billionaire money-launderer, arms dealer and criminal. Comey was a key piece in how the Clintons upped their corruption game and gained incredible wealth through their foundation after leaving the White House. A huge part of the scheme was giving Marc Rich a free pass when he should have spent life in prison, and that is what Comey covered-up for the Clintons. This set up Comey to be part of the corruption machine, making him powerful and wealthy.

Immediately after doing the Clinton’s dirty work as a DOJ official, Comey resigned from the DOJ and took a position as the head attorney (Counsel) of the Lockheed Martin company, a huge military contractor. While he was in that position Lockheed became a major contributor (millions) to the Clinton Foundation and its fake charity spin-offs. In return for these payment to Clinton Inc., Lockheed received huge contracts with Hillary’s state department. Comey was the chief legal officer of Lockheed throughout this period of contributions to Clinton Inc. in return for State Dept. contracts.

In late 2012, after overseeing Lockheed’s successful relationship with the Hillary State Department and the resulting profits, Comey stepped down from Lockheed and received a $6 million dollar payout for his services.

In 2013, the largest bank of England, HSBC Holdings, was deep into a scandal. Investigations by federal authorities and law-enforcement had revealed that for years HSBC had been laundering billions of dollars for Mexican Drug Cartels, channeling money for Saudi banks who were financing terror, moving money for Iran in violation of the sanctions, and other major criminal activity. HSBC’s criminality was pervasive and deliberate by the Bank and its officials. HSBC was a huge Clinton Foundation contributor (many millions) throughout the “investigation” and Bill Clinton was being paid large personal fees for speaking at HSBC events (while Hillary was Sec of State).

Eric Holder and the Obama Justice Department did what they were paid to do, and let HSBC off of the hook for a paltry 1.2 Billion dollar fine (paid by its stockholders), and not one Director, officer or management member at HSBC was fired or charged with any criminal. Exactly when everyone involved with HSBC Bank (including the Clintons and all of their “donors”) were being let off without penalty, and cover had to be provided to HSBC, Comey was appointed as a Director and Member of the Board of HSBC (in the middle of the fallout from the scandal). He was part of the effort to cover up the scandal and make HSBC “respectable” again.

After about a year as HSBC director, despite his lack of any law enforcement experience, no DOJ leadership experience, and no qualifications for the job, Comey was appointed FBI director by Obama.

Farce repeats itself. Once as a joke and then it makes evil history. Gilbert and Sullivan heaped condign excoriation on the social climbers of there era. Today’s comedians describe those who oppose their unearned and unworthy curson homorums as “cock-holsters” for foreign leaders. What once was considered so bad it was a parody of reality is now the defended norm in Washington, DC.

It can get worse for quite a while longer. Lavo Jato in Brazil gives us a taste of what the next leg down will look like. Perhaps soon, perhaps inevitably, comes the revolution. If you do not want to live it; pray that Mr. Trump defies rational probability and actually does drain a heck of a lot of the swamp. If you do want the revolution; root for Senator McCain, Bill Kristol and Evan McMullin. These three traitors, not Red Bernie, will be the last straw that makes about 50% of Amerika resemble LA during the Rodney King Riots.

Brexit Signals The Coming Wave Of Government Obsolescence

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

Liberal democracy won — during the past era of history — because of fear. People feared being excluded, or rejected for their bad decisions, or even being persecuted for political trends. Instead of option for cooperation, they attempted to control compulsion by making it “good” or universally accepting.

That created a cascade of other bad decisions culminating in, as Francis Fukuyama noted, an end-stage of liberal democracy paired with the welfare state and capitalism, basically a compilation of all of the previous attempts to make a working modern society. It borrowed as much from Communism and Fascism as it did classical liberalism.

With Brexit, we are seeing the cresting of a wave against not just the EU, but the idea of government itself. The average normal functional person does not need government; we are happiest during government shutdowns. In fact, our lives are mostly centered around local events, and we want national government to just run itself moderately well without our interference.

The libertarian boom of the 90s and 00s was doomed but also prescient. It wanted to use the law to defend against the herd taking whatever its members had accumulated; while this was doomed, it also introduced a new idea, which was that for ordinary life, government is irrelevant and in fact nothing more than a bother. People need stability not “progress.”

Libertarianism by itself means nothing other than a defense of the ability to retain what one has worked for. Throughout history, this has been a failing position, because the parasites merely vote themselves a “right” to whatever you have. But, through its criticism, libertarianism introduced the idea that government is a proxy of the parasitic crowd.

We want no government. We need leaders — like kings — and we need a social hierarchy such as occurs through a caste system, and some kind of guidance through culture. Beyond that, all of what government does is unnecessary and merely a pretext for taking what we have. We would rather it just went away. Government shutdown? Forever, if possible.

The future belongs to a new type of society. It will be organic, informal and decentralized. And yet, unlike our failure of a society, it will have order: strong hierarchy and caste. Brexit and Trump are the first steps toward the recognition of what we actually want, and they start with removing the idea of government as necessary and a good guy, because it is neither. It is merely another parasite.

Donald J. Trump Becomes The 45th President Of The United States

Friday, January 20th, 2017

Official White House live cam here:

As far as the usual profound “out with the old, in with the new” commentary that you expect from websites today — and remember, consumer expectation defines the product — there is only this to say: the election of Donald J. Trump was a strong rebuke to Leftism and the ideals of liberal democracy, which places equality above realistic competence on its list of demands, and the crest of a wave which is the people of the West reacting to the gradual Leftist takeover since the French Revolution.

Leftism is rationalization of decline. Our civilization has been in decline for a thousand years, but decline is a gradual process, and its final stage is liberal democracy and Leftism, including disastrous programs like gender equality, normalizing perversity, diversity, socialism and pacifism. Leftism is insanity. The election of Donald J. Trump is the first of many “baby steps” toward reversing and choosing a new direction not just away from Leftism, but from civilization decline itself.

Social Power Is The Enemy

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

The New York post unintentionally — perhaps — defined the Alt Right in a paragraph about the public/private divide in the Republican party:

You might not have noticed but there are really two Republican parties: the gentlemen and the ruffians. It’s not about NAFTA or Russia. It’s about adhering to the rules.

Equality creates the public/private divide because it means that, instead of being judged by the competent, we are judged by how the mob responds to our actions and opinions. Since mobs tend to centralize on personal fear of the people involved, inclusivity is always good and therefore, having standards — including reality itself — which might exclude anyone is bad. This means that in private we admit who we want to exclude, but in public pretend that we like everyone because they are all customers citizens.

Leftism is inherently based around the public/private divide since it acknowledges what works in public and adopts it as an ideology, but then in private, implements an intense hierarchy and militaristic governments everywhere it is tried. This pattern has repeated since the French Revolution and signals an acknowledgement that the public/private split is corrupt or at least corrupting.

This leads us to ask, “What is the Alt Right?” Fortunately, there are plenty of answers right here on this site:

But essentially, the Alt Right is the Right without a desire to censor itself to conform to the public/private split enforced on us by equality. We want to speak the plain truth and appeal to those competent realists out there, instead of trying to make the herd like us as politicians, entertainers, advertisers, prostitutes and celebrities. We recognize that truth is not found in what is popular.

For example, to Leftists, it seems like the goal of the Alt Right was to elect Donald Trump. They are partially correct; it was one of our goals, because the Trump election is a signal and symbol of the rising cultural wave that is opposing the Left. With the election of Barack Obama in 2008, the post-war Left achieved its peak, and then everything it did failed, so now we want out of it and related movements.

Alongside that comes a recognition that democracy and other forms of demotism, or measurement of what is right by what is popular, are wrong. Consumerism produces worse products and higher costs. Democracy avoids dealing with real problems and chases scapegoats. Social popularity rewards vapidity and novelty, not clarity and accuracy.

The Right — which we might describe as that which prefers realism and purpose to having a society where our purpose is humanity itself — orients itself toward time-proven activities, and to measure what is good, transcendentals or ongoing goals that constitute qualitative improvement. Our goal is to get intelligent people to “awaken” from the dream of ideology and start looking at reality again.

Trump is a step along this path, but more of a statement of the cultural shift that allowed him to be elected than a goal complete in itself. This election was a stepping stone where the cultural wave, as with Brexit, manifested in a political act that has then spurred on others and empowered voices to speak out what was punishable under the Obama regime.

The next step is for us to realize that social power is the enemy. What is popular, is wrong. This election was not a triumph for democracy but an indicator of how badly democracy got it wrong that has prompted a backlash, and an invalidation of the ideas of Leftism, democracy, equality, tolerance, diversity and gender equality themselves. That is the face of this cultural shift.

Despite that, both the mainstream Right and underground Right (“white nationalists”) remain in the grips of a desire for social power. The mainstream Right cannot shake the desire to play by the rules and be seen as white knights. The underground Right wants to unite people on sheer emotional anger. Both of these lead to the same place, which is targeting the wrong issues and missing the big goal, which is to restore civilization.

Watch this cordycepted cuckery in action as anti-WASP traitor to his generation Paul Ryan heeds the call of the passive:

Host Jake Tapper pointed out that Mr. Trump, during the campaign, promised a “deportation force” to round up the more than 11 million immigrants in the country illegally. Ryan dismissed that idea.

“I’m here to tell you in Congress, it’s not happening.”

Ryan is attempting to speak from a position of re-assuring people that he is friendly, harmless and politically correct so that they can vote for him as a less-bad option rather than someone who might achieve something. This appeals to the inner desire of all human beings to avoid the difficult work of figuring out the world, and to go back to sleep instead, ignoring the ongoing problems.

Trump has two choices here: he can enforce the law, at which point illegals need to be sent home, or he can accept that the law is ineffectual and that political popularity of an action is more important than whether it is illegal. This both weakens the law, and weakens the process of changing the law, because now there is no feedback mechanism to change the law to fit what people think they want.

Republicans however cannot resist the call of popularity. “Everyone is included” is a perennially popular idea. And so, despite having victory handed to them, they choose defeat by endorsing the policies of their enemies that will ultimately lead to demographic victory for the Left in perpetuity:

A group of House Republicans is pushing President-elect Donald Trump to keep in place Obama administration protections for about 750,000 young illegal immigrants, joining with Democrats on legislation to extend a shield on their deportations for another three years.

They have missed the writing on the wall. Americans identify with Trump more than with Republicans. Americans want a wall built. We do not wish to be demographically eliminated for the convenience of the ruling Establishment, which is Leftist but includes cucked Republicans. We want to survive and even more, we know we need more purpose than making money and voting Leftist, so we want to restore the West.

But that goes against the social pressures that have meant political victory for the past seventy years. As a result, we have selected out almost all politicians with the will to be brave, and instead we have these little toady-boys and their dreams of popularity.

Elites Inverted

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

In the early days, Mencius Moldbug attempted to adapt the Indian caste system to the United States, describing the different castes — or genetic ranking — of Americans through the following schema:

Early in UR I suggested a five-caste taxonomy of American society, and described the conflict of American politics as a struggle of three of these castes (Brahmins, Dalits, Helots) against the other two (Optimates, Vaisyas). For those whose time is short, Brahmins are intellectuals, Dalits are what Marx called the lumpenproletariat, and Helots are unskilled laborers. Optimates are the old “upper-crust” aristocracy, and Vaisyas are the petty bourgeoisie.

Naturally, to someone from the Traditionalist camp, this listing seems skewed. We are familiar with the Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaisya and Sudra castes, and those make more sense when one looks at the Bell Curve and realizes the breakdown of intelligence.

These castes are generally expressed as follows: Brahmins are leaders and thinkers; Kshatriya are warriors and artisans; Vaisya are shopkeepers and bankers; Sudras are manual labor.

But now, we get some data on American castes from a news story about political alignment:

For decades, Democratic presidential candidates have been making steady gains among upper income whites and whites with college and postgraduate degrees. This year, however, is the first time in at least six decades that the Democratic nominee is positioned to win a majority of these upscale voters.

According to the Oct. 20 Reuters-IPSOS tracking survey, Hillary Clinton now leads Donald Trump by 5.6 points among all whites earning $75,000 or more. This is a substantial improvement on the previous Democratic record of support among upscalee white voters, set in 2008 when Barack Obama lost to John McCain among such voters by 11 points.

This tells us who are now in the Brahmin role: Vaisyas, or those who make their income in keeping shops. Kshatriyas and Brahmins have been displaced by the voting capacity of the Sudras, who breed more rapidly and thus gain a majority in any successful society, displacing the power of their betters (yes, I said it) and thus causing the society to fail.

Our “intellectuals” want us to believe they are Brahmins, but in reality, they are experts at making products out of ideas, which places them in the Vaisya camp. Vaisya dominance of thought has brought us to a binary state, where one is either with the Party or little people, much as in the Soviet Union and Revolutionary France.

Our “leaders” are similarly inclined to make appearance and emotional-symbolic resonance products, and these are similarly Vaisya.

Commerce has dominated the West because of equality, which puts the Sudras on top as buyers, voters and regulators of social importance. All three of those vectors — consumerism, democracy and socializing — are demotist, or that which favors quantity over quality.

The West will begin a restoration of health when it re-inverts this inversion of social order.

Mainstream Media (Mostly) Buries News Of Podesta Leaks

Monday, October 24th, 2016

john_podesta

At this point, no one is surprised that American mainstream media (MSM) acts like a propaganda organ of the Left. Their most recent outrage was to blare less-than-credible accusations against Donald Trump of sexual assault in order to rally the female voters of the Left, and to distract from the Wikileaks releases.

These releases have kept pouring, difficult only in that there is so much that it requires someone who is paid to investigate things like this to pore over them, but that group would be — in theory — our journalists, and they are mostly ignoring the event.

One voice broke through in the pantheon, and reported on batch 17 of leaked emails from John Podesta:

WikiLeaks released its 17th batch of emails stolen from John Podesta’s personal account on Monday, bringing the total number of emails in the leak to 30,235. The group has posted batches of Podesta’s emails nearly daily over the last several weeks.

…On page 31 of the document, emailed to Podesta by research director Tony Carrk, there’s a quote from Trump about Machado: “She weighed 118 pounds, or 117 pounds, and she went up to 160 or 170. So this is somebody that likes to eat.” The quote is included in a section of the report titled, “On Women’s Weight and Appearance … Including His Own Daughter’s.”

The article then covers other highlights of the leaks, including Clinton’s health and mental state, but is part of the CBS online effort and apparently is not also broadcast with television news. However, this shows some cracking within the media facade even if relatively small.

As the MSM spin machine tries to play this one off, they make unintentional revelations which end up helping the case against them. For example, Politifact issues the following hit piece on the leaks, but in doing so, confirmed that their origin was not Russian:

For example, hackers were kicked out of the DNC network June 11, yet among their documents is a file that was created on June 15, found Thomas Rid, a war studies professor at King’s College London.

If one of the leaks occurred after the hackers were booted, then there is another source in addition to the hackers. (This leads us to wonder who among the world’s hackers did not manage to hack the Clinton Foundation and Democratic National Convention, since it sounds like it was like rush hour traffic in there.

In addition, the fact that American government officials leaned on Ecuador to induce that state to cut off internet connectivity for Julian Assange suggests collaboration between Clinton officials and the standing government, which in itself is a gross ethical violation.

All of these factors contribute to the likelihood of two things: (1) distrust of Clinton keeping some voters at home and (2) frustration and distrust of the media driving other voters toward Trump. Let us hope for the latter, as a good option that slowly reverses the decline is, for now, better than an apocalyptic confrontation.

The Political Singularity

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

do_you_want_total_war

As the countdown to the election of rapidly approaches, the enemy scales up its attacks, intensifies its hatred, and screeches more loudly its lies.  Each day, it seems, bring forth a newly attempted scandal from the Democrats, and a new emboldening toward frankness and bare honesty from Trump, recently unleashed from the designated loser the Republican party. 

Every day brings a further dulling of the left’s attack words (“racist”, “sexist”, etc), so they push them harder.  Trump’s mere presence has caused the left to rally and focus their energy reserves against him in a way that unmasks them, leaving them more vulnerable to counterattack, and may deplete them.

If we extrapolate the escalating energy levels of these high intensity political forces, we find the conditions and possibilities of November 8th to be unpredictable in a wide range.  The old political equations break down at these energy levels.  After that date, anything could happen — coup, death squads, foreign invasion, nukes, Kekian revelations — anything. Order will be suspended

We are approaching the Political Singularity.

In that moment, we will leave behind the familiar order where liberal democracy is on top. In this order, anything egalitarian is right and whatever is most egalitarian wins. In the new future, self-interest replaces egalitarianism. Globalism falls to nationalism. Good intentions die in the face of practical, common sense defense of the objectives of each person and his tribe.

The modern time has equated social order with equality. This is in fact an absence of social order because it removes all hierarchy but the equal political role of all people, except for appointed leaders who lie and steal as they see appropriate. People cannot conceive of an order outside of this framework.

And yet, we step into a brave new world. The political assumptions that defined 1789 and 1968 are no longer valid. We will have to re-invent civilization from its roots in order to have it prevail, and this terrifies us because for the first time in our lives we are relying not on precedent but our own judgments, based on our knowledge of the world.

While this is terrifying, it is also wholly refreshing.

Our whole lives we have been forced by social pressure to work within a narrow frame of what is acceptable based on what has been done in the near-past. Ideology, which is a type of pretense, guided us not by giving positive examples, but by raging against any choice outside the dominant trend. We were trapped and our results ended up bad because we could not change their founding assumptions.

On November 8, regardless of who wins, the antiquated order of liberal democracy dies. People no longer trust government, media, academia and special interest groups to provide us with answers. We are casting aside the old rule book, and re-inventing what it means to be civilized.

In that moment, many illusions die, but we will also face a task harder than any we have faced. We must look to the results of each type of action and make hard choices about which are better than the others. There will be no textbooks, news articles and think tanks to guide us. All we will have is our desire for a better civilization and our knowledge of what principles achieve it.

Since its earliest days, liberal democracy has faced criticism from those who noted that it resembled mob rule. Now we see the end results of that herd domination: endless debt, failed institutions, corruption and third world disorder among our previously-orderly societies. Liberal democracy has failed.

Instead, we must look to a new dawn. The old assumptions have died. We are now painters with a blank canvas before us with only knowledge of golden ages past to guide us. We know that modernity — egalitarianism — ends in ruins, but what will we appoint in its place? This is the political singularity: we are back to square zero and running out of time.
