I have seen the stats on the IQs of Ashkenazi Jews. They’re stupendous, awesome, awesomely awesome, break the calculator high. They are huge like the numbers in astrophysics math where you put it all in scientific notation and hope you can get within two orders of magnitude and call it correct. I exaggerate a bit, but then again, so does Jonah Goldbrick.
In short, CSTO is a dictators’ club in which authoritarians agree to protect one another’s grip on power, including from internal threats from their own people. NATO doesn’t send troops into member countries to prop up failed autocrats. CSTO is also a tool for Putin to rebuild the lost empire of the Soviet Union. Putin uses another tool toward the same end: military force, or the threat of it. That’s what he’s doing to Ukraine. Putin has deployed about 100,000 troops on the Ukrainian border in preparation for what could be yet another invasion of Russia’s neighbor. The U.S. and Russia are in Geneva this week to figure out a diplomatic exit from the crisis Putin has created.
This demonization of Vladimir Putin is ridiculous. Should we trust him? No further than your typical 5’8″, 160 Lb. man could defecate the dictator. He is a jerk. His motivations are probably evil. He kinda-sorta reminds me of Joe Biden, Barack Obama, and George W. Bush. Vladimir Putin is evil. So are nearly 80% of the world leaders in power on a day ending in Y.
If Vladimir Putin is scary, then it helps to remember Charles Dickens’ Ghost of Christmas Future. Vladimir Putin arrived early in Russia. Xi is contemporaneous in China. Amerika just lags the curve. Amerika lags because Amerika’s leadership caste is more stupid than water is wet. Amerika will eventually require a dictator to fend off starvation. Stupid people play stupid games and win stupid prizes. In representative democracies, they win those prizes for the rest of us.
This brings us to why the USSA will have to either be euthanized or Putanized. Jonah Goldberg is a scion of the elite. His mom owned many media and coined money. She perhaps bought Yale University some prime real estate to buy Defective Jonah his golden ticket. Other nonentities then planted Jonah at National Review along with a bag of peat moss and another of cow manure.
One morning Jonah The Smug got stuck in some snowy traffic on Parking Lot 95. He wanted to know what the newly elected Governor of Virginia, Glenn Youngkin, intended to do about it.
Never Trumper Jonah Goldberg originally blamed the Interstate 95 disaster on incoming Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin (R), when Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat, is still in office. “If I was Glenn Youngkin I’d be flooding the zone to get this I-95 crap fixed,” Goldberg tweeted Tuesday morning. “DC suburbs are vengeful about this kind of thing.” He later added, “Sorry, Northam’s still gov.,” but Goldberg deleted the tweets a few hours later, adding an explanation: “I deleted the original tweet because even tho I quickly admitted my error, I’m still getting dumb replies from people who don’t know that or don’t care.”
He had forgotten that Glenn Youngkin couldn’t flood anything much with gubernatorial power until duly inaugurated. The people driving discussion and wanking their expertise in public are fundamentally ignorant on the very topics about which they opine. Then, they get all snippy when people explain to them that they are a beer or two short of a case.
Therefore, Jonah lacks the IQ points of a King Charles spaniel. He is not alone. Sonia Sotomayor probably mistakes Mensa for some political action committee headquartered in Alexandria. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appreciates that Virginia cared enough to name a city after her. It is not as if the brainpower of Amerika’s “elite” will be making Guam tip over any time soon.
What happens to places run by mental midgets? The empire doesn’t typically remain much larger than the IQs of the people attempting to run the shop. And guess who currently runs the shop?
“Staffers who worked for Harris before she was vice president said one consistent problem was that Harris would refuse to wade into briefing materials prepared by staff members, then berate employees when she appeared unprepared,” the Washington Post reports. One former staffer told the paper, “It’s clear that you’re not working with somebody who is willing to do the prep and the work. With Kamala, you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence. So you’re constantly sort of propping up a bully, and it’s not really clear why.”
But then again, Jonah Goldberg and Kamala Harris come from legitimate genetic stock. HBD alone should be propping them up well enough for them to each do far better than either does at present. It doesn’t. They are Tom and Daisy Buchanan without the jazz. Perhaps they are each examples of the diversity that was supposed to be our strength.
A wretched class of people who expect obedience runs the country. They then deliver sets of orders that even a moron would find laughably incompetent. At that point, these people comprehend that they suck, but do not want the consequences associated with the suckage. The leaders therefore scream at other people and blame them for problems that they know good and well that they caused themselves.
Eventually, like the aides fleeing from employment under Kamala Harris, people will drop out of this screwed up parody of inbred feudalism. When enough of the stolid and steady worker bees drop out of circulation, then the lights go out and the faucets stop magically producing water. It takes a Weimar Republic to elect a Hitler. The scary part is that Kamala Harris thinks that the Weimar is part Willie Brown’s anatomy. Remember, she never visited Europe.
With smart people like Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden, running the show things will get bad. With a loyal opposition consisting of Marco Rubio and Lindsay Graham, they will continue to worsen. Only people like Vladimir Lenin would argue “The worse the better.”
Russia, China, Iran, Weimar Germany, and Depression Era Italy all collapsed and had done with it. They each enthroned the few people still left who could find their own rectums with a flashlight and a GPS. These were frequently unpleasant people. A place with the Weimar cabaret scene will not produce very many saints.
Watching Rap-Star Hip-Hop will not lead towards beatific apotheosis either. It also leads to a rot of what IQ points our future progeny retain. The longer we keep this culture, the more enstupidated our people will grow. As Amerikan culture wallows in the gutter, the crown of our regime will end up there eventually. Pray that the person who picks it up is at least as smart and organized as Napoleon Bonaparte.
So back to Vladimir Putin. He is not a threat to the USSA unless we piss him off until he chucks up the nukes. Putin is in charge of a nation that collapsed so badly that the best part of his current national cohort ran down their mothers’ legs. Unless he is the 1-in-a-million in either psychopathy or ability, he will never pose the threat either Hitler or Napoleon could.
We should want Putin to bat a few points higher than The Mendoza Line as a benign dictator. If he can hold Russia together and make its people less paranoid and prone towards economic exsanguination, then his term as dictator will move the hands of The Doomsday Clock an hour or so further away from midnight. Even Jonah (((Stupid))) Goldberg should be able to piece that together. It would be pleasant if he could at least flash some of the IQ points of an Ashkenazim while he wallows in the thoroughly unmerited privilege.
