Witches, Wolves, and Skinny Naked Things Running in the Dark

We are living in a weird time of high level information manipulation. Wealthy power players at the highest level of government, finance, industry, media, law, and academics have an iron grip on public minds, both educated and uneducated.

This is what journalists, editors, and publishers are all saying:

“They can bankrupt me,” he tells me. “Facebook, Twitter, Google— they can ruin you in a matter of hours. For somebody like us, they can destroy you. So what do we do? We pull our punches. To raise certain issues is to cut your own throat.” He continues, “The newsman in me says, ‘Tell the truth,’ and that sounds great. But if I do that and destroy [my publication] in the process, what kind of pyrrhic victory is that?”

The information landscape becomes ever narrower, squashing diversity of thought and facts. Pretty soon, we won’t know what we don’t know. And that will be that. __ Source

They have attained a power to control election outcomes and everyday narratives that was formerly reserved to communist and third world dictators. Detroit was just one of the places where fraud reigned in the recent elections. Complaints were filed, but corrupt judges dismissed them on the reassurances of corrupt election officials:

Carone did report what she saw to the FBI, a criminal organization with a headquarters in Washington. They will do something about it but only if you consider creating a cover up, doing something. The company she was working for, Dominion Voting seems to have had many problems with the tabulations, every one of which benefitted Joe Biden.

The same ballots being run repeatedly, where the same stack of 50 Biden ballots became 500 votesNo valid or legal oversight of ballot process, it was just Democrats policing DemocratsPoll workers duplicated ballots and were changing the votes on the ballots, stealing votes in plain sight!

And there is panic and hysteria on the streets over the pandemic. Countries are destroying their own economies as if they were facing the second coming of bubonic plague. But instead of babies and young people dying, it is the very old and very sick for the most part who succumb to this “Chinese culling virus.”

Frankly, if it had not been for mainstream media and the government, I would not have even noticed there were a pandemic. __ Source

Of course if not for lockdowns, most modern nations would have already born the brunt of the COVID phenomenon and be well out of the Chinese virus outbreak — preparing themselves to face this season’s influenza and other myriad cold weather viruses. And without the economy – killing lockdowns, those societies would be better prepared to deal with the next virus down the pipeline from China.

Power-hungry government officials have never been so happy, and are salivating over other opportunities to squash the people under their thumbs. Powerful news media outlets march in lock-step with each other in support of oppressive governmental policies — including corrupt voter fraud that invariably promotes increased deep state control of populations and economies.

What is next? Given the unhinged class of people who seem to have weaseled their way into the power chairs behind the figureheads, something very crazy which is completely out of line with the American Constitution and the system of government which was meant to operate under checks and balances to prevent excessive government abuses.

Perhaps there are enough honest judges and investigators to expose the massive illegal power grab, the grand deception, and mendacious coverup by media and deep state alike. But in the case that the pendulum has already swung too far toward the vile and unscrupulous, a deeper level of resistance than we have ever seen before will be needed.

Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst. Look deeply into the power structures of your enemies and their organizations. If they succeed in their coup d’etat, instability will grow and there will be places and times where the application of minimal levels of non-violent force can make a difference.

Put your efforts where they will make a difference, not where your emotions would tend to lead you.

Without the Fraud, Trump Would Win

Guest Post from Bruce Bawer

If All the Fraud Is Uncovered, Trump Will Win

How do we know? The people who tried to pull off this election heist are drawn from the same swamp as the conspirators in the Russia hoax. By Bruce Bawer

November 12, 2020

“The Times Called Officials in Every State: No Evidence of Voter Fraud.” So read the front-page headline in Wednesday’s New York Times. This assertion was echoed by virtually every major news organization in the United States and around the world. And, even before the story, it was the media mantra for over a week.

Biden, the Times keeps reassuring its readers, is our unequivocal president-elect; there’s no evidence whatsoever of any kind of electoral hanky-panky; Trump, by claiming otherwise, is being the thug, the sore loser, whom we always knew him to be; by leveling these utterly unfounded charges, he is spitting in the face of American democracy and rejecting an honorable two-and-a-half-century-long history of presidents peacefully transferring power to their successors.  

All nonsense, of course. It’s already plain that there has been significant Democratic duplicity at the polls in several states. Every day the mountain of evidence grows higher.

And every day a certain conclusion seems to me to grow more certain. No, I don’t have a full oversight of the scale of the vote fraud—far from it. But I feel increasingly confident saying the following: if all of the cheating in the 2020 presidential election can be uncovered and reversed, then Trump will emerge the clear winner.

Why do I think this?

First, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that all this fraud was carefully coordinated and calculated at every level. The criminality has not been haphazard or sloppy; on the contrary, the various kinds of vote manipulation appear to have taken place only in a small number of swing states. And the number of invalid votes in those states that have been credited to Biden, and of valid votes denied to Trump, seems to have been calculated very carefully so as to ensure that each of those states would be stolen from Trump and that Biden’s lead would be slim but definitive.

In the same way, whoever engineered this operation focused on just the right number of swing states to make certain that the total number of electoral votes shifted thereby from Trump to Biden would guarantee the latter a certain, but not suspiciously overwhelming, victory.

Malice After Midnight?

In other words, whereas the whole business seemed chaotic at first blush—consisting of a mishmash of write-in ballots cast by dead people, of Trump votes turned into Biden votes by a certain kind of voting machine software, of poll workers on Election Night forging new Biden ballots so quickly that they didn’t bother to tick off down-ballot races—when you step back and behold the forest instead of the trees, it all begins to look almost surgical.

It’s already been demonstrated that this sordid scheme, while tightly focused in the sense that it manipulated the vote only in a relatively small number of urban areas, was also broad-based, in the sense that the urban areas affected were spread over much of the United States. The operation manifestly involved a great many perpetrators who knowingly chose to commit felonies in order to achieve the election result that they wanted.

That being the case, it seems highly unlikely that so many people would have taken such a serious risk of being caught, convicted, and imprisoned if they had been reasonably sure that Biden would have won even without their help.

To me, this means that they must have done what they did knowing that had they not intervened, Trump would have won.

The realization that a Trump victory was at hand must have come to them some time after midnight on Election Night. That would explain why the vote counting mysteriously stopped, seemingly all at once, in several different places around the country—and why it started up again, in the middle of the night, after many of the polling stations involved had announced that they were through counting for the day.  

Those who have bought the line of the Democratic Party and the mainstream media sneer: how can you possibly believe in such an elaborate plot? In so much high-level criminality by so many people in positions of authority? To believe in massive voter fraud, they argue, is to buy into the wildest conspiracy theory ever. 

But this isn’t the wildest conspiracy theory ever. It’s not even the wildest conspiracy theory of the last four years. That honor has got to go to Obamagate—the theory that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and leading officials at the FBI, CIA, and elsewhere conspired to try to tie the Trump campaign, and later the Trump Administration, to Russia.

Wild theory, huh? Wildest ever. Except it was true. The saintly Obama, along with several of his cronies, did try to bring down Trump using Russia and Ukraine—all the while knowing that one of their own, Biden himself, had dirty ties in both countries, as well as in China.

The people who tried to pull off this election heist are drawn from the same swamp as the conspirators in the Russia hoax. And in both cases they’ve had the Times and the rest of the mainstream media on board, eager to spread their disinformation to the world.

Bipartisan Civility Is For Suckers

Those media aren’t just trying to sell us on the claim that Biden is already our president-elect. After four years of refusing to respect Trump as a legitimate president and consistently painting his supporters as idiots and bigots, they’re now telling Trumpites that they want to make up and be friends.

Some wimps in the Republican ranks want to accept this offer. They worry aloud that if Trump challenges the election results too vigorously, it’ll ruin any chances of bipartisan civility during the next four years. They further warn that if this whole mess ends up in the Supreme Court, and Trump is named the winner, all hell will break loose. Trump’s second term will be bumpy; he’ll be savaged constantly; he’ll be accused of stealing the presidency.

So what else is new? We’ve already gone through four years of that. Four years of talking heads on CNN and MSNBC calling Trump is an existential threat to American democracy. Four years of late-night talk-show hosts mocking him as the biggest buffoon on the planet. Four years of tweets by everyone and sundry calling Trump Hitler.

Four years of the New York Times ignoring Trump’s achievements, exaggerating his faults out of all proportion, telling outrageously false stories about him, and smearing his character.

And, most recently, several months of brutal rioting in the streets of major cities—rioting that was carried out exclusively by left-wingers, and that, when not dismissed by left-wing media as “mostly peaceful,” was completely mischaracterized as owing to the innate violence of Trump and his supporters.

Well, the hell with all of them. If the Supreme Court ends up deciding this debacle, and Trump wins, and the Left goes berserk—even more berserk than they’ve gone so far in the streets of Portland and Seattle and Minneapolis and so on—then let them go berserk. Let’s see how angry Joy Behar and Rosie O’Donnell and Bette Midler can get. Let’s see how self-righteous Colbert and Kimmel and Maher can get. Let’s see how many windows the Antifa and BLM thugs can break, how many fires they can set.

Trump will still be president, and he won’t feel constrained in his response to any of them.   

About Bruce Bawer

Bruce Bawer is the author of While Europe Slept, Surrender, and The Victims’ Revolution. His novel The Alhambra was published in 2017.

This crime against the republic was conducted in startlingly full view by the deep state with the full cooperation of the mainstream media, the silicon media, and large social institutions that have lost touch with ordinary citizens and their needs. The aftershocks from this violent attack on the rule of law will be felt for many years and decades to come. The celebratory complacency of those who are feeling well-served by this fraudulent election is likely to be shattered repeatedly and in unfortunate ways.

Prepare for a great deal of turbulence ahead. If the criminals are installed at the head of their fake government, look for some attempts at massive overreach. Be ready.

Nursing Home Dementia Patients Voted Overwhelmingly for Biden!

Whether because “birds of a feather flock together” or for other reasons, dementia sufferers in nursing homes across the United States chose to cast their ballots for Joe Biden in the recent US national elections.

It is not a question of whether fraud occurred: obviously it did

In Texas a single nursing home worker registered over 100 mentally impaired patients without their legal consent, effectively voting for them. Other similar cases have been revealed in Texas. A hundred here, a hundred there . . . pretty soon the illegal votes from nursing homes, from convicted felons, from people long dead etc. start to add up.

In Pennsylvania alone, tens of thousands of suspicious ballot requests emerged simultaneously from nursing homes across the state:

We’re now finding potentially that 25,000 nursing home residents in different nursing homes requested mail-in ballots at the exact same time,” he said.

“You can’t ballot harvest in Pennsylvania,” Graham said. “What are the odds that 25,000 people in different locations of the same age group requested at the same time a ballot? Somebody is up to no good in these nursing homes.”

The Tip of the Iceberg

These shenanigans have been commonplace for decades, wherever Democratic Party officials are the ones in charge of counting the votes. But with the engineered explosion of mail-in voting in 2020, tens of thousands of illegal Alzheimer votes are small change.

Voter fraud is not just an unsavory suspicion — it is a booming profession!

… the political insider, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he fears prosecution, said fraud is more the rule than the exception. His dirty work has taken him through the weeds of municipal and federal elections in Paterson, Atlantic City, Camden, Newark, Hoboken and Hudson County and his fingerprints can be found in local legislative, mayoral and congressional races across the Garden State. Some of the biggest names and highest office holders in New Jersey have benefited from his tricks, according to campaign records The Post reviewed.

“An election that is swayed by 500 votes, 1,000 votes — it can make a difference,” the tipster said. “It could be enough to flip states.”

The whisteblower — whose identity, rap sheet and long history working as a consultant to various campaigns were confirmed by The Post — says he not only changed ballots himself over the years, but led teams of fraudsters and mentored at least 20 operatives in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania — a critical 2020 swing state.

It’s Not Who Votes that Counts… It’s Who Counts the Votes!

Up to a million votes were counted in Pennsylvania under unsupervised conditions — vote observers were forcibly prevented from observing the voting and/or counting. Under more lawful and less corrupt conditions, a mandatory revote under strict observation would be required.

The same story of made-for-fraud election engineering in Democratic precincts pops up in big city districts across the country. We are accustomed to this type of vote-rigging in Democratic strongholds. But when this kind of fraud affects state-wide and nation-wide elections, it is time to consider how these cesspools might be sanitized.

Again, what is more worrisome than the fraudulent elections, is the media coverup combined with the general public’s apparent willingness to accept fraudulent election returns — if they favor their candidate of choice. The general breakdown in moral character is not seen only among younger voters, who are typically naive and inexperienced in the real world. Among college professors, journalists, and attorneys we see a surprising enthusiasm shown toward election fraud.

If the US has fallen under the thumbs of professional criminal election-riggers, does this mean there will never be a fair election again? The thing to remember is that the genuine choice of the people has to win enough votes to exceed the margin of fraud that is thought to be acceptable by the criminals running the operation. In 2020, the vote-by-mail scam had gained sufficient momentum due to COVID panic to allow the criminals a convenient way to manufacture hundreds of thousands of votes in crooked precincts located in states such as Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and other swing states.

In states such as Florida, the margin of fraud was exceeded by the true vote. That was not the case in several other states, however. If Biden proceeds to become the figurehead “president” cardboard cutout for the deep state and its puppetmasters, it will be due to the criminal vote fraud organization which Biden himself unintentionally touted, on the campaign trail.

Simply put, it is a well planned and coordinated coup involving many elements of government and affiliated private sector interests. It is how power is concentrated in one-party states of the third world, communist world, and how it was concentrated in the nazi reich.

At least a hundred million people will carry the anger over this fraudulent election forward into the future. Perhaps a hundred million others will secretly relish the fraudulent victory and hope that their side will never lose again. Of the rest, most will never know or care what happened, either way. But the general loosening of morals being seen among mass consumers of media — news, entertainment, social, and other — and among the miseducated and increasingly badly governed, is an unfortunate trend to go along with a steady drop in average IQ being observed.

It is for times like these that the concept of “islands of competence” populated by Dangerous Children, was conceived and developed. Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst. Things are not always as they seem.

The Intent Was to Inundate the Election With So Much Fraud that it Could Not be Challenged

The US Democratic Party has been rigging elections for over a century and a half. It is a particularly lucrative form of organized criminal behavior which is common in third world and communist countries. All that is needed is control of the vote counting, and a safe, private place to “count” the votes out of the public eye.

“In Wayne County, Republican poll watchers were denied their legal right to monitor the election and purposefully kept in the dark…there are thousands of reports of poll watchers being intimidated and unable to do their job and as of  4 p.m. this afternoon, 131 affidavits have been completed just in Michigan with over 2,800 incident reports that have been submitted to us since election day. Two new lawsuits were filed today by people who were working in Detroit and a whistleblower [came forward].”

Quoted here

And now with “computerized voting” they have even better ways to cheat by miscounting the votes:

The computer glitch that was found to have turned 6000 Trump votes into Biden votes in Michigan.  Software that’s used in 47 other Michigan counties, not to mention pretty much all the states with miraculous vote changes for Biden.

That was not a computer glitch. That was a programming decision. Whether that was some sort of programming error, which seems highly unlikely, or if it was deliberate cheating I don’t know, but I highly suspect deliberately bad software.  Let’s face it; adding integers is just about the easiest thing to get a computer to do (and if you’re thinking of adding votes as floating point numbers, go back to school).

Let’s get one thing clear.  Computer “glitches” cause a system to fail, or cause it produce random-looking outputs.  They can even possibly reboot the system.  If it’s good software, it gives some sort of indication that something bad happened.  If it changes the results of a count, or moves it to another candidate that’s something else. 

A clever program for election fraud

Another common approach is to manufacture new ballots out of thin air:

More than 20,000 absentee ballots in Pennsylvania have impossible return dates and another more than 80,000 have return dates that raise questions, according to a researcher’s analysis of the state’s voter database.

Over 51,000 ballots were marked as returned just a day after they were sent out—an extraordinary speed, given U.S. Postal Service (USPS) delivery times, while nearly 35,000 were returned on the same day they were mailed out. Another more than 23,000 have a return date earlier than the sent date. More than 9,000 have no sent date.

The state’s voter records are being scrutinized as President Donald Trump is challenging the results of the presidential election in Pennsylvania and other states where his opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, holds a tight lead. The Trump campaign is alleging that invalid ballots have been counted for Democrats and valid ballots for Republicans were thrown away.

Impossible Ballots

Description of a Biden “vote factory” in Nevada

“I personally witnessed two people handing multiple unopened mail in ballot envelopes to two other people who then opened and filled out the ballots against the side of the Biden/Harris van,” the affidavit said. “The same two people who marked the ballots then put the marked ballots in official pink and white envelopes. These people were not poll workers.”

In Wisconsin, the crime was committed by county and municipal clerks — part of the official system of elections.

Instead, multiple sources tell “The Dan O’Donnell Show,” municipal clerks and vote counters across the state simply filled out witness signatures themselves. Acting on false and unlawful advice from the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC), these clerks may have inadvertently invalidated thousands of absentee votes.

“The statute is very, very clear,” said retired Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman, who worked as a poll watcher in Milwaukee on Election Day. “If an absentee ballot does not have a witness address on it, it’s not valid. That ballot is not valid.”

Wisconsin County and Municipal Clerks Commit Fraud

And let’s not forget the old ploy of registering more voters than are eligible to vote inside a particular precinct:

Judicial Watch announced today that a September 2020 study revealed that 353 U.S. counties had 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens. In other words, the registration rates of those counties exceeded 100% of eligible voters. The study found eight states showing state-wide registration rates exceeding 100%: Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

“The new study shows 1.8 million excess, or ‘ghost’ voters in 353 counties across 29 states,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The data highlights the recklessness of mailing blindly ballots and ballot applications to voter registration lists. Dirty voting rolls can mean dirty elections.”

Judicial Watch

Sometimes the DP rounds up some reliable dead voters, sometimes they get undocumented aliens registered, and often out of state voters will lend a helping hand.

While dyin’ Joe Biden, the walking corpse, has been annointed “President Elect” by the mainstream media… in reality there is no office of “President Elect.” If there were, such an office would have no authority. Certainly no authority to meet with foreign leaders and lay out future government policy. That would violate a number of legal statutes.

Meanwhile, the state of Pennsylvania is not as firmly in the Biden camp as the media has been assuming:

The legal team for Donald Trump has filed suit in Pennsylvania and the RCP has retracted the call for Pennsylvania for Joe Biden.

The Fraud Never Ends With These People

Voter fraud is almost as old as the mountains and the seas. Where there is profit to be made and power to be gained, there will be fraud and outright theft and mayhem. But the willingness of supposedly “good and moral” people to countenance such fraud — as long as they can get rid of a public official they do not like — is the underlying problem here. The willingness to overlook this blatant criminality out of spite toward someone they see as intolerably disagreeable, is a clear sign of deep societal decay and impending collapse. They are digging their own graves, and celebrating over it!

The web of fraud and deceit runs deep and dense, particularly in large cities. It is a well planned and developed scheme of vote addition and vote subtraction. It begins with fraudulent voter registration and it extends to fraudulent votes at the polls, and is followed by fraudulent vote counting in hidden locations — and to the forcible exclusion of vote count observers in official election quarters.

But this criminal fraud also includes media reporters, commentators, and executives who attempt to shape the views of prospective voters, and to discourage voters on “the wrong side” from voting. It includes crooked pollsters who intentionally skew the results of pre-election polls in order to shade expectations — providing room for the vote cheats to pad the counts. It includes entertainment media hacks who try impose artificial views of normality and of what is “cool” onto specific parts of the voting public. It is a concerted effort, long in the planning and deep in the execution.

The mob expected to pull it off without more than a minor hitch, here and there. Well, we will have to see.

If the vote count was unsupervised, a mandatory re-vote is needed

Fraud, Fraud… More Fraud: They Are Not Called the Democheats for Nothing!

Sorting out the signs of wrongdoing:

If election observers are not allowed to observe the vote-counting process, that is prima facie evidence of election fraud. An automatic recount in all such cases should be mandatory. Other signs:

Attorney Sidney Powell claims that her team has found 450,000 ballots with only votes for Biden and no down-ballot selections made. Powell suggests that this number of single vote ballots is suspect, and indicative in part of “abject fraud” that she says flipped the election to Biden.

450,000 Battleground State Ballots Set Off Alarms

Mail in voting is an open invitation to fraud, and the Democheats accepted the invitation with alacrity — as if they had been preparing for it all along. And so they had.

When a party that calls itself “democratic” throws up roadblocks to voter ID verification procedures that are commonplace across the globe, my question is whether perhaps there are four letters missing at the beginning of the party name: “a”, “n”, “t”, “i”. (Or 6 letters, “p”, “s”, “e”, “u”, “d”, “o”.) [**]

The Fraud is By Design

It is not only elections that have been discredited by this cheating. It is the entire government, the entire media, Hollywood, Silicone Valley, and the inner city precincts where a large part of the shenanigans took place.

Black people and other minorities should not be made to bear this stigma of cheating on top of other disadvantages — such as high illegitimacy rates. But the Democheats do not hesitate to load them down with more ugly baggage. After all, if you don’t vote for the Democheats, you’re not black — according to the walking corpse at the head of the Party. Biden is telling them they have to remember whose slaves they are. And if you don’t let the Democheats use your precincts to perpetrate an election fraud, apparently you’re not black then either.

If Biden Dies Before Inauguration

If Biden were to die before December’s electoral college vote, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) would have the ability to name a replacement candidate and pressure the electors currently committed to Biden to support them instead. Presumably, although not necessarily, the new candidate would be Biden’s vice president Kamala Harris.

Once Biden is selected by the electoral college, he officially becomes the president-elect. If he were to die between the electoral college vote but before the early January congressional certification, members of congress have an opportunity to object to the electoral results in any state and, if both chambers agree, to switch that state’s votes to the opposing candidate. It’s pretty hard to imagine Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic House speaker, agreeing to hand a state to Trump in any conceivable circumstance.

Walking Corpses Do Eventually Fall Down

It would make sense for the deep state and its puppetmasters to want to dispose of the corpse as soon as possible, in an effort to move on from all the unpleasantness and open cheating surrounding the campaign and the election. But that is not likely to be enough to still the ugly waters of distrust.

If The Better Half of the Country Drops Out, It Becomes Like “Atlas Shrugged

 TwitterCNNGoogle, and the like can project and declare whatever winner they want, but they don’t get to choose the president. That’s never going to serve as proof to most Americans today. Big media and big tech have been too exposed to get away with doing that anymore.

That is why this issue needs to go to the courts to be decided. They are some of the last remaining institutions to which all Americans can—in principle, at least—be held accountable.

If all the evidence of voter fraud is not investigated and properly accounted for, half of America will fervently believe that the election is a fraud no matter who ultimately wins. It is a critical problem if half of a democratic nation has insufficient trust in its electoral institutions to believe the presidential election was legitimate. __ Source

When the people who do the actual work that keeps the wheels rolling decide that their governments have defrauded them and have become dictatorships, the trust that keeps a society afloat is degraded. After enough of that, a prosperous society loses the integral ties it needs to continue functioning like a society. This is the line which the Democheats are crossing.

Joe Rogan Can’t Be Bullied, Can’t Be Bought

In the video below, Joe Rogan has a casual conversation with a former government employee and current security consultant. They talk about a lot of things in an offhanded way, which Twitter, Facebook, or the NYT would kill to keep quiet.

Watch Joe Rogan tell the simple truth about some of the shenanigans of Joe Biden and Biden’s media bridal train. These are things the mainstream media along with Facebook, Twitter, and Google have been tying themselves into knots to keep the public from hearing.

Joe Rogan tells the obvious truth as he sees it — unlike the cowards and lackies in the mainstream. And he has just begun to watch and tell . . .

It seems that Biden boosters are counting ballots that never came from legitimate voters, to the tune of hundreds of thousands of votes in single states alone. This appears to be fraud as it has never been seen. But it is worth it to the perpetrators and their backers, since the payoff runs into the tens of $trillions, if you look at government budgets and government policies which funnel $trillions of dollars in particular directions.

How Philly cheats

How Detroit Cheats

How Milwaukee Cheats

There has been eyewitness testimony about falsifying the postmarks on late mail-in ballots. Election observers were being harassed and kept away from the counting tables in Detroit. Software glitches have been discovered switching votes from Trump to Joe Biden in Michigan, and the same software is being used in other battleground states.

There have been statistical anomalies like 90 percent voter turnout in Wisconsin and bizarre late-night vote spikes for Biden in several states. All of this evidence and more strongly suggest the Democrats and their media allies are indeed attempting to steal the election.

Under the Democheats, Elections Cannot be Trusted

US mainstream media outlets have declared Biden the winner of the election, although they lack any authority to do so. The reality is yet to be decided in the courts.

The court of public opinion has spoken, and Trump was the apparent choice for four more years of the presidency. Nevertheless, the criminals of the deep state and of big city Democratic election precincts look to have made preparation for the case that Trump might win the legitimate election. And so they prepared an illegitimate election addendum.

These deep state assholes and their useful idiots up and down the food chain have set in motion an out of control feedback cycle that has an uncertain end point. Most members of the public have no idea what is going on, and will be content if they get their paycheck or their benefits check on time, and their internet and cable TV still work.

But some deep perturbations have been initiated, a lot of eyes have been opened, and this game is moving into uncertain territory.

Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. The people behind the fraud are criminals and have no scruples when it comes to your welfare or your very existence.

They Don’t Care if the US Explodes into Violence

The people generating the manufactured late votes in “the biggest fraud in US election history,” are willing to risk triggering massive nation-wide violence — if they can only pull it off.

Joe Biden himself bragged on video that his campaign had “put together the most comprehensive electoral fraud organization in history!” Apparently, the walking corpse was right. And certainly, that is just what his campaign needed to turn a certain loss into a dirty win.

But there is nothing truly stealthy about what is happening in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Nevada. And if the news media were willing to expose what is clearly happening, the shadow prosecutors and judges who are covering up the felonious behaviour of election officials would either be forced to act — or face serious legal consequences themselves.

The media — including social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc.) — are not only pretending that the fraud is not taking place, they are actively blocking the voices who are documenting that fraud.

With that type of media cover, the perpetrators and their government enablers are betting that any violence that occurs can be blamed on their political adversaries.

Supporters of Biden have been warning that President Trump may not admit defeat and may resist leaving the White House — but they did not warn the public that they were planning to cheat their way to victory in a de facto coup. Of course Trump will resist this illegal vote tampering and will object to a criminal election result. Who would not, in a rational and moral world?

Most consumers of news and information seem to want to be spoonfed in small easy bites. Anything more substantial than “baby pablum” would give them terminal indigestion. This leaves them vulnerable to perpetual manipulation, to being led from one unbelievable whopper to another by their own short attention spans and ever weaker and more credulous mental faculties.

Virtually all of the violence so far has been coming from the left, the same kind of violence that has been happening for six months at the hands of leftist agitators and thugs who are paid and shipped-in from the outside to do their dirty work.

The money bags behind this determined coup by fraud, do not care if violence escalates. They can use their pet media hacks to frame the picture any way that benefits them. The long term impact on America and on Americans is not their concern. Their only focus remains their own power and profit gains. The little people are disposable — and that includes their own cannon fodder on the streets and in low level positions.

We keep coming back to the Democracy Alliance and other related groups of ultra-rich puppetmasters and high level control networks. They consider themselves untouchable. Whatever values they hold in their amoral arrogance, are likely to be entirely alien to most ordinary people with ordinary concerns. More

The 2020 US presidential elections are being contested, perhaps all the way to the US Supreme Court. Emotions are likely to run high. Violence by Democratic Party proxies in cities controlled by Democratic Party mayors and Attorneys General can be expected to ramp up until the election is decided in a way considered favorable to those who use the Democratic Party as their own little toy.

They do not care who is hurt, killed, or ruined. They see this as their world, as their country. You do not matter.

For your part, it is best to avoid confrontation. Let the lawyers do what they do best. The outcome is uncertain and is likely to leave a very bad taste in the mouths of half the country whichever way it goes.

What is rarely said is that the half of the country that backs the current iteration of the Democratic Party is made up of a large number of organized parasites — people who produce nothing and who tend to destroy a great deal. If such people eventually end up in control of government policy and government budgets, the resulting rapid decay in the state of the nation will be beyond sugar coating or covering up by even the most skillful spokespersons of media, government, academia, Hollywood, or corporations/advertisers.

Reality eventually sinks in. But what assets and resources will be left to fend off the wolves when what is left of the people finally wake up?

But seriously, folks. Any election that allows people to vote without proving who they are and that they have a right to vote at that polling place, is not actually a serious election — and should never be treated as a serious election.

One political party has gone out of its way to make sure that election cheating has been made easy. In a rational world, that party would be tarred, feathered, whipped, and run out of the country permanently. Anyone who defends fraudulent elections should be barred from future voting, since it is likely that they would cheat if allowed.

Where Can You Find an Objective Voice?

Who holds the key to your brain?

Media and Journalism: These people filter, shade, and spin most of the information you get about the part of the world involving politics. 95% support Biden

Social Media Platforms: These people censor stories and social media that reflects badly on leftists. Virtually all of them support Biden.

College Professors: These people tell your children what to think, instead of teaching them to think for themselves. 95% support Biden

Government Employees: These people can ruin you financially or tie you up in litigation for years. A large majority supports Biden

Trial Lawyers: These people can destroy you with frivolous lawsuits. 99% support Biden

Hollywood Executives, Producers, Directors, Celebrities: These people set the mood for what is trendy, cool, and normal. 95% + support Biden

Internet Search Engines Controllers and Overseers: These people decide what returns you get when you set out to learn something or decide an issue on the internet. Google dominates this field overwhelmingly, and is decidedly on the side of Biden.

The Deep State: These people control the permanent government which exists below the levels of government you typically see and deal with. They can make you disappear without a trace. Virtually all of them support Biden.

Human Resources Departments of Corporations and Government Agencies: These people can decide not to hire any persons of a particular race and sex, as long as they are all white males — and they are increasingly making such decisions. Virtually all of them support Biden.

Big Money Wall Street: These elites control the pensions and investments of tens or hundreds of millions of people. Although they are vilified by street-level leftists, 80% of their big money political donations have gone to Biden. Why? They are hoping for a big score on the ground floor via government connections when the spending calculus suddenly changes to the tune of several $trillion dollars. The early bird who turns on the rest of the flock gets a lot more worms.

The election today is in large part about whether China will own America, or whether Americans will be able to retain ownership of most of America. The groups above who overwhelmingly support Joe Biden — along with Iran, Russia, China, North Korea, Cuba, ISIS, and the rest of the usual suspects — are determined not to let US voters determine the election this time around if they can help it.

IQ scores of young birth cohorts in western countries have been dropping since 1975. We see an Idiocracy in the making, with youngsters and their teachers caught in a landslide of demographic decline. Universities, government, and media are not immune from this general “dumbing down.” The heavy support of all of the influential groups above for the Alzheimer Candidate is highly suggestive of a general rot in mental function.

In today’s election, the state of Pennsylvania is set to play a prominent role. The state’s attorney general Josh Shapiro is promising to hand over the state’s 20 electoral votes to Joe Biden, regardless of how the real election seems to be shaping up. In Philadelphia, official poll observers from the Republican Party have been forcibly prevented from performing their functions in voting places. The corruption runs deep in Philly, and not only there.

Over the past several months, we have seen the intentional crippling of the economies of dozens of Democrat Party-run states and cities — with the implied expectation that a bad economy would help Joe Biden be elected. Then, President Joe Biden would provide generous federal bailouts for the guilty governors and mayors, and no one would question any of the shady proceedings from start to finish.

All of the groups at the top of this page have been doing their part to advance the scenario where Dazy Joe Biden becomes the figurehead “president” for the deep state and the shadow puppetmasters who provide “guidance” for the deep state manipulators.

It should concern most thinking persons that such heavily biased organizations as the above play such a dominant role in determining the everyday information access in government, schools, media, the workplace, and everyday life. But because of the relentless dumbing down across society, the very idea of a thinking person with an independent mind and independent sources of information, is becoming vanishingly rare.

Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst. It is never too late for a Dangerous Childhood.

These are the contrasting visions we face, behind the media facade:

We will see a lot of confusion in the days ahead. But we should be clear about the world these people plan to bring about. And we should also be clear who are behind the curtain trying to bring that ugly world into existence.

The Age of Violently Wishful Thinking

What Do We Want? Utopia! When Do We Want it? Right Now!

We have never quite outgrown the idea that somewhere, there are people living in perfect harmony with nature and one another, and that we might do the same were it not for the corrupting influence of western culture.

__ Melvin Konner… quoted by David M. Buss

In the western world we now have a higher standard of living than humans have ever known before… today’s middle class lives better than the royalty of not so long ago, and yet, human misery is everywhere.

__ Russ Harris

Cities are burning and people are dying because mind-children have been taught that their natural birthright of a perfect utopia is being withheld from them by an evil and selfish culture.

We are probably closer to utopia than we have ever been, largely because of the actions of the effect of mostly “evil white men.” Here is another look at why things are better for more people now, than ever. But we would never know any of these things if we relied upon “the indocrination machine” that controls most of the gateways of information in the US.

When indoctrinated zealots take to the streets to destroy the life’s work of much better people than they themselves will ever be, they never stop to ask themselves whether their assumptions are valid. In particular, they never ask themselves the question: “Compared to what are things so intolerable?”

Since mind-children are never to blame for their own stupidity, where should we place the blame for the plague of faux-outrage-fueled destruction and waste that litters the cities of the west coast, the midwest, and the eastern seaboard of the US?

Professors, “journalists,” and cheap trick politicians are all clear participants in the twisted indoctrination machine that cranks out so many overgrown children incapable of thinking for themselves.

But the decision-makers at Google, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube are equally to blame. So are executives at Disney, Warner, the NBA, the NFL, and every news and entertainment media conglomerate.

We can also see the hands of the “perpetual deep state” in the one-sided indoctrination of the masses, from birth to death. But it is the hands that pull the strings of the machines behind the deep state, which are most to blame. The people represented by those hands generally prefer to stay in the shadows.

If the grand experiment of the founders of the USA were to collapse due to the broad range of manipulations of these “behind the deep” puppet masters, only a few persons outside of the inner circles of power would have been paying close enough attention to understand what had really happened, and who was responsible at the different layers of culpability.

Perhaps that is for the best, since this media/corporate/academic/political industrial/criminal complex now has so much power to distort and obscure reality, that it is apparently capable of placing an openly senile and deeply corrupt politician into the highest political office of the US. Any cabal with that much power which also controlled the many assets of the US government, would be difficult to oppose by any imaginable citizens’ group.

Still, when you hear the promise from the Alzheimer Campaign to “bring America back to normal,” if you are at all intelligent you cannot help but cringe at least a bit — even if you yourself voted for the shell of a man.

No one with a working brain imagines that Joe Biden will ever function as US President. The purpose of all of the riots, the looting, the burning, the murders, the deadly lockdowns, and the manufactured malaise, is the elimination of the one man who stood in the way of the grand utopian crusade which has plowed its way through universities, government agencies, media conglomerates, and corporations over the past several decades with this very goal in mind — to tear it all down.

Sweden Once Again Goes Its Own Way on COVID

Sweden’s death rates from COVID are lower than for most of Europe. Like much of the rest of the world the “case count” in Sweden has trended upward with the cooler weather. But so far, Sweden is resisting the mass hysteria toward “lockdown fever” seen in much of the rest of the continent.

After deciding to take a “herd immunity” approach to COVID-19 at the start of the pandemic, Sweden was roundly condemned for not following the harsh lockdowns imposed by virtually every other major European country.

However, as Newsweek acknowledged, Sweden’s COVID-19 death rate is lower than those of Spain, the UK and Italy, countries which all imposed draconian lockdowns.

Source

With more people already having been exposed to SARS CoV-2 and presumably being at least partially immune to its more serious affects, Sweden seems in a much better position to face the wintertime virus season — at least in terms of COVID.

Interminable lockdowns only extend the pandemic far beyond the time it should have already peaked.

As the head of the US CDC said: “We’re seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from Covid. We’re seeing far greater deaths from drug overdose, that are above excess, than we had as background, than we are seeing deaths from Covid.”

Greater excess deaths from cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and the other high ranking causes of death also come with the irrational lockdown responses which accompany obsessive focus on a single virus.

Lockdowns are killing more people than the virus.

More and more medical professionals are recognizing the severe damage the lockdowns have caused to present and future public health. A worldwide collection of medical and public health experts has just issued a declaration stating that current “lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health” and that to keep “these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.”

Source

It is almost as if public health officials have forgotten everything they ever knew about infectious diseases — and decided to take their cues from the communist Chinese government about how to face this particular virus.

Shutting down the economies of the free world and putting hundreds of millions of healthy people into lockdown quarantines indefinitely will apparently benefit select groups of people. Cui bono?

Great Emancipations

Emancipation is any effort to procure economic and social rightspolitical rights or equality, often for a specifically disenfranchised group__ Emancipation in Wikipedia

Over the past two centuries, there have been at least four “great emancipations” in the western world.

  1. The Emancipation Edict of 1861 in Russia

  2. The Emancipation Proclamation of 1862 in the US

  3. The Emancipation of Jews in Europe and the Anglosphere in the 19th century

  4. The Emancipation of women also known as Women’s Sufferage

Emancipation can be viewed as a type of “unleashing,” as in letting an animal off of a leash. One can expect different results from an unleashing, depending upon what animal is being released from restraint.

For most of the centuries of Russian history, the majority of people were serfs. The emancipation of Russian serfs in the 1860s was a first step toward making Russia a more modern nation.

The US had only allowed slaves for roughly the first 80 years of its existence until Lincoln’s proclamation in 1862. The end of the US civil war in 1865 allowed the full enforcement of slave emancipation.

Jewish emancipation allowed Jews entry into universities and into most professions for the first time.

Women’s suffrage and women’s rights eventually allowed women full rights of voting, vocational choice, and legal ownership, etc.

Which Emancipation Yielded the Greatest Result?

In France and the Netherlands, Jews were permitted to enter universities in the 1790s, but it was not until 1848 that this was allowed in the Austro-Hungarian Empire and some of the German and Italian states; and it was not until 1871 that Jews were allowed to attend universities in England. In the United States, Jews were not given full civil rights at the state level until 1868…

In numerous countries throughout the world, Jews have become
massively overrepresented in the professions, the universities, among
business leaders, and the very rich. At the highest levels of intellectual
achievement, Jews have won 27 percent of the A. M. Turing Awards that
have been given annually from 1966 to 2009 for contributions of lasting
and major technical importance to computer science. Jews have been
about half of the world’s chess grandmasters and champions: between
1851 and 1986 there were 15 world chess champions, and seven of
these were Jewish—Steinitz, Botvinnik, Smyslov, Tal, Spassky, Fischer,
and Kasparov (Cranberg & Albert, 1988; Rubinstein, 2004). Another
cognitively demanding game is bridge. It has been estimated that more
than half of the outstanding American bridge players and theoreticians
have been Jewish (Storfer, 1990). The pinnacle of intellectual
achievement in science and literature is the Nobel Prize. Jews have been
hugely overrepresented among Nobel Prize winners. In the period from
1901-1962, 16 percent of Nobel Prize winners for science were Jewish
(Weyl & Possony, 1963, p. 143). Estimating the world population of Jews
in 1938 at 18 million and the world population of European Gentiles at
718 million, Jews were overrepresented by a factor of approximately 6.6.

From: The Chosen People by Richard Lynn

One would be hard pressed to make similar claims for the former serfs of Russia, the former slaves of the US, or for women.

We are living in an age where exceptional people — and groups of people — have never been more neglected or despised, from before birth to their death. In the west, most political capital is devoted to the welfare of persons who tend to underachieve — members of so-called oppressed groups.

When one merely points out the fact that some groups achieve higher accomplisments than some other groups, one is frequently accused of racism — a charge that can result in loss of job, loss of reputation, and loss of future prospects.

RaceMedian Income
Jewish$97,500
Asian$76,260
White $60,256
Pacific Islanders and Native Hawaiians$60,133
Hispanic$42,491
Black$35,398
http://aristocratsofthesoul.com/average-iq-by-race-and-ethnicity/

Judging by the US comparison of income by race above, Jews have used their emancipations very well.

Asian Americans have also been “emancipated” in the US from positions of great disadvantage over the past two centuries. Note that Asian income is second only to Jewish income in the above comparisons.

Consider the following comparison of group average IQs, and consider how average income and average IQ might possibly be related:

Ashkenazi Jews  110

East Asians (China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore) 105

Europeans (Northern and Western Europe is 100; Eastern and Southeastern Europe is 95) 97

American Indians (North and South America) 90

Hispanic-Americans 89

Southeast Asians (Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Borneo) 87

Pacific Islanders (Natives of New Zealand, Micronesia, Melanesia, Polynesia, and Hawaii) 85

African-Americans 85

South Asians (Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, the Gulf states, the Near East, and Turkey) 84

North Africans 84

Sub-Saharan Africans 70

Australian Aborigines 62

The US government once declared war on poverty and called it The Great Society. But poverty won that war.

If it is not in a people to transcend the forces (often themselves) that have placed them in poverty, the government may spend as much as it wishes, it will make little difference. It will likely make things worse.

Having sown the wind, however, the Great Society now began to reap the whirlwind. Fanning protest, empowering gang bangers and radicals, belittling local authorities: all this was playing with fire. And fire broke out. Over six days in mid-August, some 34,000 rioters destroyed Los Angeles’s Watts ghetto, leaving 34 dead, over 1,000 injured, and 1,000 destroyed and looted buildings worth $40 million. “When you keep telling people they are unfairly treated and teach them disrespect for the law,” said L.A.’s police chief, “you must expect this kind of thing sooner or later.” Nor was it just the community organizers who were telling this to the minority poor. So was all of elite culture at the time, while the elites also celebrated sexual promiscuity, recreational drugs, dropping out, and questioning all authority. It was this cultural shift, more than anything else, that accounts for the skyrocketing rates of underclass social pathology—out-of-wedlock pregnancy, drug abuse, crime, school dropout, non-work—that began in 1964.

You may emancipate anyone by government decree. But the subsequent results of that emancipation can never be guaranteed. When government does try to guarantee a “golden emancipation,” the results are apt to be abysmal.

Wise persons understand that governments should never try to go beyond “equality of opportunity under the law.” Of those groups above who prosper most in the US, equality of opportunity is all that most of their members truly need. And of those who prosper less than the US average — but still prosper more than most of the rest of the world — any attempt by government to force a different outcome than results naturally, will almost certainly lead to catastrophe.

The greatest emancipations are those that provide for equality of opportunity. If a group of people expects or demands more than that, they immediately become a serious problem for the rest of society.

The Most Important Thing We Learn from Politics

Daily life is based largely on lies that we tell each other. Politics makes this point so well because there is virtually no truth at all in anything that touches politics or government policy — especially the media. Telling the truth “is interpreted by politicians and the media as a threat to their security.”

The mind is a bullshit machine.
The main thing that can free a person from his or her own mind is telling the truth. Telling the truth is always interpreted by the mind as a threat to its security. __ Radical Honesty by Brad Blanton

Politicians could not get away with half their bullshit if not for the media support they receive. Who would vote for Joe Biden, for example, if they knew that the former US Vice President declares repeatedly on the campaign trail that he is actually running for the Senate(!) in 2020, rather than the presidency? Biden’s obvious senility continues to be conveniently covered up by a media that supports the shell of a man almost 100%.

How politicians lie.

How newspapers lie.

Who would obediently accept government lockdown orders that destroy lives and livelihoods, if they were properly informed that the no-lockdown approach by Sweden and certain US states has resulted in quicker population recovery from the Chinese pandemic and much quicker economic recovery?

https://fee.org/articles/5-charts-that-show-sweden-s-strategy-worked-the-lockdowns-failed/

Lies make the world go around. Lies make your world go around. Specifically the lies that are tacitly accepted by you and those around you. People who tell the truth are not in great demand. Not just in politics and the media, but also in academia, in most corporate structures, and in most pubs and neighborhood bars.

Lies also make the world a sleazier place for everyone.

Consider the image below:

Joe Biden Pet Detective and Friend to Pet Lovers

The image portrays the moment of realization when Biden voters first understand that they’ve been had. It is a moment of dawning comprehension for the victim who sees that she has fallen for the BS — this time in front of a crowd!

Joe Biden has a long history of victimizing powerless women around him. But you have to go to Australia to find media coverage of that fact, which only those Americans who pay attention would know.

Or what about Biden’s corrupt relationships with China and Iran? If Biden voters wanted to hand the US over to its enemies, they could do nothing more treacherous to the republic than to hand over the reins to the power brokers behind the shell of a man who sometimes knows to call himself Joe Biden.

But how would they know? The media never tells them anything important about the man they plan to vote for. The lies and bullshit are at least 50% lies of omission.

Corruption thrives on lies. There are no greater purveyors of lies than the media and the deep state/big government. When politicians promote big government solutions to every problem — both real and contrived — you do not have to wonder if they are corrupt liars. They are inevitably swimming in their own BS.

We are living in interesting times. For over a century, the US has been both the world’s wealthiest nation and the nation that others rely on to bail them out when thrown into war by Kaisers, Hitlers, Stalins, and other tyrants.

But the vast corruption and indebtedness of the US government — along with a rising tide of demographic incompetence — makes the future much fuzzier in terms of any further potentially effective rescues of the outside world.

Do what you can.

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst. It is never too late for a Dangerous Childhood.

Why Do They Want You to Panic?

Lockdowns are typically portrayed as prudent precautions against Covid-19, but they are surely the most risky experiment ever conducted on the public. From the start, researchers have warned that lockdowns could prove far deadlier than the coronavirus. People who lose their jobs or businesses are more prone to fatal drug overdoses and suicide, and evidence already exists that many more will die from cancerheart diseasepneumonia, and tuberculosis and other diseases because the lockdown prevented their ailments from being diagnosed early and treated properly.

__ Lockdowns Kill

Sweden has been without lockdowns throughout the pandemic, and is one of the few locations to display signs of early herd immunity.

Source

Lockdowns, more stringent in Democratic than Republican states, have produced higher unemployment and greater drops in state revenues. Keeping unionized public schools closed is driving parents to private schools, homeschooling, and improvised pods. __ Lockdowns are Hurting People

Instead of observing measures designed to slow the spread of the virus, the young and healthy should resume normal activity in order to incur herd immunity and thereby protect those vulnerable to severe illness. 

Source

According to the WHO, roughly 1 million people have died from the virus. Let’s put aside the fact that so many of those people died with the virus, not because of it and that a majority would have died within the year. Working with their official count [that 750 million people in the world have been infected], it would mean the implied infection fatality rate for the world, according to the WHO, is 0.13%.

Guess what else has a similar fatality rate? If you guessed the plain old flu, you won the jackpot. Here are the estimated fatality rates in the U.S. of the past decade worth of flu seasons based on CDC data.

Notice how the death rate for COVID-19 is in line with that of the seasonal flu.

__ Source

 In August, the president appointed Dr. Scott Atlas, a critic of lockdowns and our one-size-fits-all remedy to cure the virus; Atlas, 65, is a much-needed antidote to the attention-hungry, flip-flopping Anthony Fauci, who refuses to exit the media’s adoring spotlight or entertain any opposing viewpoint.

Is the Cure Worse Than the Disease?

The essential prerequisite of all good public health measures is that careful estimates should be made of their advantages and disadvantages, for both the individual and the community, and that they should be implemented only when there is a significant balance of advantage. In general, this ethic has been a sound basis for decision in most past situations in the developed world although, as we contemplate the control of milder diseases, quite different considerations such as the convenience or productivity of industry are being brought into these assessments. __ Source

Fewer than 10% of “COVID deaths” were caused exclusively by coronavirus infection. And of those who consistently test positive for Chinese coronavirus by PCR, only 10% are capable of spreading the infection to others.

As long as the elderly and those otherwise at particular risk are protected, other people should be allowed to go about their business without harassment or fear.

So why are journalists and politicians promoting panic? The US has long been an obstacle to left-wing globalist aims. President Trump personifies this obstruction to corrupt leftist crusades, and so in the eyes of leftist strategists he must be removed.

From the earliest days of this pandemic from Wuhan, left-wing strategists have sought to use it to damage the US President’s standing with American voters. Using their proxies in media and in national, state, and county governments, they have been largely successful in destroying jobs, closing schools, badly damaging routine healthcare around the nation, and otherwise putting American people at risk — largely in order to damage President Trump’s political standing.

It remains to be seen whether the American public will allow itself to be stampeded and bamboozled to its own detriment.

Wizard of West Returns Even Stronger Than Before

The wizard of the western world descended into the abyss while battling the Balrog monster named COVID. To the amazement of the world, he has returned with a new visage, and a revitalized mission — to defeat those twisted men of power who create the monstrous orcs, balrogs, and goblins — and who force all men to live in fear.

https://babylonbee.com/news/donald-the-orange-returns-triumphantly-as-donald-the-white

WASHINGTON, D.C.—While battling the darkest monster from the pit of hell, known as “COVID,” Donald the Orange fell to his doom several days ago, sacrificing himself to save America from the deadly demon.

So Americans were ecstatic to learn that Donald the Orange had returned in a new, better form, now known as Donald the White. A brilliant white light shone from Walter Reed Medical Center as Donald the White emerged just in time to save America from COVID, Antifa, and the Deep State.

“I come back to you now at the turn of the tide!” he cried as he rode triumphantly out in the presidential limousine, codenamed “Shadowfax,” cutting right through the ravenous hordes of Antifa counterprotesters blocking the way. 

“Donald! Donald the Orange!” cried his supporters outside Walter Reed Medical Center.

“Yes…” he said as he sat in the back of Shadowfax. “Yes… Donald the Orange… that is what they used to call me.” The newly revived president has a newfound passion for life and even more energy than before…https://babylonbee.com/news/donald-the-orange-returns-triumphantly-as-donald-the-white

In striking contrast to the manner of his corrupted and much reduced opponent, Donald’s return in a different guise strikes a virile pose that the dwarf “sleepy Joe” could never hope to match. And while crazed leftist orcs are reduced to barking at the moon and “COVID experts” wail in fear over tests of questionable worth, Donald the White assumed the risk of life and rode the balrog monster COVID down to the depths where he battled to victory over the demon from Wuhan, China.

While the profile of the typical coronavirus decedent has been known for months—median age 80, suffering from co-morbidities that likely would have killed the person anyway—the exact path of transmission remains mysterious. There is no correlation globally between degree of lockdowns and coronavirus death rates. Countries such as Britain that imposed strict lockdowns have massively higher death rates than many countries, such as Japan, that mandated no lockdowns. Deaths and hospitalizations are going down in localities that were more commerce-friendly. There is still no uncontroverted evidence on mask-wearing. Thousands upon thousands of people who have assiduously worn masks have gotten the virus; thousands upon thousands who have not worn masks have not gotten it. Countries with extensive mask-wearing show no better results than several where people breathe free outdoors. What we do know is that transmission occurs overwhelmingly in poorly ventilated indoor spaces, between individuals who have been in close contact for a considerable period of time—15 minutes, in the CDC’s contact-tracing guidelines. The viral load in circulating outdoor air is too low to pose a risk to people passing one another in ordinary street interactions. __ Against Fear

Lockdowns benefited billionaires such as Jeff Bezos — whose company Amazon has benefited more than any other. While Jeff Bezos’ newspaper The Washington Post was promoting lockdowns to gullible rubes, Jeff Bezos’ cash cow Amazon was raking in the chips. Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos’ political allies attacked Donald the Orange in rabid tones, over the economic toll the country paid as a whole because of lockdowns.

Donald the White vs. Sleepy Joe the Wary

People are speculating as to how this will play out over the next month and how it will affect the election. I have no idea. But I think that those who believe in trying to eliminate all risk are probably not the ones thinking of voting for Trump in the first place. They are the ones for whom the image of a masked, sequestered, and subdued Biden is reassuring. __ Life is a Risk

Note: Posing real life in terms of tales, myths, and archetypes is something we may expect from a Carl Jung, a Joseph Campbell, or a Jordan Peterson. But on a deep level that is how we humans store and analyze the world, in terms of mythical narratives. President Trump has been opposed by every powerful institution — political, media, corporate, academic, etc. — since he began seriously dipping his toes into the fetid pool of politics. He has literally fought the monsters of the swamp at every turn, with support largely coming from ordinary working people.

The ginned up “Russian Collusion” conspiracy was aided and abetted by the Obama FBI, CIA, NSA, FISA, Department of State, Department of Justice, and numerous other agencies of the swamp. But it was played to the American people as if it were genuine news, for three years. The same broad spectrum organized mendacity was shown in the phony impeachment ordeal. Faked scandal after faked scandal were put forward in the effort to separate Donald the Orange from his supporters who believed that the wizard in the White House was all that was standing between them and the monstrous swamp forces of doom that threaten the western world and western civilization. And by and large, they still believe that.

And so the myth marches on toward an extended denouement, a wildly contested election which may never reach a firm and clean conclusion if the swamp forces have their way.

So hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. It is never too late for a Dangerous Childhood © .

About those tests:

According to a study done on positive samples in New York, Massachusetts, and Nevada, 90% of tests had very little viral debris in the sample, indicating that infection and transmission are unlikely… __ NYT quoted by Source

A Powerful and Wise Guided Missile: What Every Child Should Learn About Himself

The following are some more thoughts that originated in Stephen Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.”.

Most children are given a horrible start in life. Left largely to the mercy of schools, peers, social media, mass media and mass entertainment, who can blame them for becoming vapid and easily manipulated by “celebrity culture” and by equally clueless peers? But what if kids were given something solid to work with, from the earliest years of their lives? Then they would be the actors, rather than the helplessly acted upon.

Whatever is at the center of our lives will be the source of our security, guidance, wisdom, and power.

  • Security represents your sense of worth, your emotional anchorage
  • Guidance means your source of direction in life
  • Wisdom is your perspective on life, your sense of balance
  • Power is the capacity to act, the potency to accomplish something

These four factors are interdependent. Security and clear guidance bring true wisdom. Wisdom becomes the spark or catalyst to release and direct power. When these four factors are harmonized together, they create the great force of a noble personality, a balanced character, a beautifully integrated individual.

__ Adapted from Stephen Covey … The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

These are not “all or nothing” factors. They can each be charted on a continuum. Each can be developed and integrated with the others. But everything that a parent says to the child and each activity performed, should be said and done with those factors in mind.

Let’s go back to Covey’s idea of “center of influence vs. center of concern.”

Essentially, at the beginning, our circle of influence is rather small and we can control only a few things, most pertaining only to ourselves. At the same time, our circle of concern is huge and cluttered, leading to a feeling of helplessness/frustration. If we commit to focusing our energy on the things that we can control, we start changing from within. This in turn, changes dramatically the influence we have over others. So, we end up increasing the scope of our circle of influence while at the same time crowding out clutter from our circle of concern.

Try to see things from the child’s point of view.

If you want to raise responsible, self-disciplined children, you have to keep the end clearly in mind as you interact with your children on a daily basis. You can’t behave toward them in ways that undermine their self-discipline or [self confidence]. __ 7 Habits

If the child has a solid grounding of security, sound guidance, habits of thought and action based on wisdom, and a connection to the source of power inside of them, for them to build their futures will seem an enjoyable challenge — problems and all. This will be especially true for those who are given a Dangerous Childhood © of broadly based skills and competencies of both a practical and theoretical nature.

Imagine new generations of children who are raised to be integrated, harmonized, and grounded in wisdom. Imagine if they are given true competence to act in the world. Imagine the power they might bring to the challenges of the future. Then contrast them with the generations of thugs, arsons, terrorists, and violent insurrectionists who haunt the cities of the modern world.

Much of the chaos of the world is the result of parents abdicating their responsibility to their children — both born and unborn.

Note: It was many years ago that the book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” was recommended to me. But since I had read so many self-help books and psychology books already, I decided to skip this one. Now, after receiving yet another recommendation, I am taking a closer look. And the ideas are proving very provocative.

Sometimes it is not the ideas in a book which are helpful, but rather the way the ideas are put together. And sometimes you just have to read them at the right time for them to have an impact.

The Illusion of Control and the Circle of Influence

Some Things Cannot Be Controlled — Even By the US, the EU, or the UN

In the 1970’s, Ellen Langer, a researcher from UCLA, demonstrated evidence for a phenomenon she called the illusion of control…

Time and again, research has demonstrated that intelligence, knowledge, and reason notwithstanding, people often believe that they have control over events in their lives, even when such control is impossible. __ PsychCentral “The Illusion of Control”

The illusion of control is particularly strong when it comes to governmental and inter-governmental issues. Politicians and politically connected cronies in business and the media take advantage of this mass illusion to press for particular government policies or to push support for particular candidates.

Circle of Influence vs. Circle of Concern

Thirty years ago, Stephen Covey published the book “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.” The first habit was “Be Proactive.” The author distinguished between the things a person could actually control, vs. the much larger number of items which people often obsess over — but which they cannot control to any meaningful degree.

Circle of Influence vs Circle of Concern

If we want to change our situation in life for the better, we can spend our time more wisely focusing upon the things that we can change. Steven Covey contrasted “proactive people” who often accomplish far more than their share, with “reactive people,” who spend more time excusing their failure to achieve, blaming everything and everyone around themselves. Proactive people work with what they have to create something better, while reactive people tend to wait for people and institutions around them to create perfect conditions, before they are willing to exert themselves.

Reactive people take a passive stance – they believe that the world is happening to them. … They think the problem is “out there” – but that thought is the problem. Reactivity becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, and reactive people feel increasingly victimized and out of control.

Proactive people, however, recognize that they have responsibility – or “response-ability.”

It is our willing permission, our consent to what happens to us, that hurts us far more than what happened to us in the first place – STEPHEN COVEY

In order to be proactive, we must focus on the CIRCLE OF INFLUENCE that lies within our CIRCLE OF CONCERN – in other words, we must work on the things we can do something about. __ Source

Reactive people often think of themselves as “oppressed victims” who deserve reparations or special preferences such as affirmative action. Proactive people refuse to accept the label of victim, and work hard and smart to create better conditions for themselves and their loved ones.

Proactive vs. Reactive Personalities Often Have Different Politics

The delusion of utopia is far too common among college educated youth these days. They believe that governments and inter-governmental agencies can control the universe around them to such an extent as to be able to create a utopian vision of perfection — as long as they are the ones setting the policies. Perhaps their intentions were once clean and good, but their willingness to use looting, arson, and even murder, reveals their inner nature far better than any words or purported policies ever could.

Originally Taken off Facebook by Source

Setting out with the intent of creating heaven, they create hell before taking three steps from home.

These Children Were Never Truly “Raised”

When children and youth never learn personal competence and never learn to set priorities within their circle of influence — as opposed to being perpetually lost in their “circle of concern” — they reach an uneasy state of “quasi-adulthood” without the tools to become fully human. As a result, they are unable to live outside of urban areas where all services are provided for them. Many of them never learn to exist outside of inbred institutions — essentially ideological echo chambers.

When they take to the streets, they do so with carbon-copy rules of groupthink that have been given to them in top-down style by “those who set the rules and write the talking points.” This is all done in true Orwellian style, with not a hint of irony or introspection.

You do not need to understand very much about political philosophy or political economics to understand the ultimate downfall of these overgrown mind-children. Just understanding the way their minds were shaped willy-nilly by the external forces of the day — without solid internal grounding — is enough to understand the doom that awaits them and their cause, ultimately.

The irony of these overgrown children is that they believe they are being proactive by taking to the streets. But they are cannon fodder for other men who issue their marching orders and who exist far above the pay grades of these “phony soldiers for hire.” In other words, their words do not mean what they think they mean — and their actions in particular do not lead to the things that they imagine. It could never be otherwise.

When Your Delusions Impact Reality, it is Not Reality That Crumbles

We are living in a time when large numbers of college educated people have very little practical value to the present — much less to the future. This is due to the nature of what is being taught in colleges today. This alone is a crime, but compounding that crime is the fact that universities are driving large numbers of young people and their families into lifelong debt, to pay for the travesty of miseducation that takes place under the banner of “higher education.”

When the Bolsheviks took over the Russian Empire, it took almost 75 years for reality to shatter the delusion of Russian communism. In the US, today’s equivalent of Bolsheviks are rallying to try “by any means necessary” to negate any meaningful election laws and to remove any restraint by the US Constitution on tyrannical action by public officials. Here is one example of such a proposed tyrannical action. They have already succeeded so far with the Chinese coronavirus lockdowns. Now that they know what they can do, there is no end to the shenanigans they can perform to shape their new utopia.

Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. These people have the highest regard for themselves and their ungrounded groupthinking ideologies. They really believe that anything at all is justified for their cause. Prepare yourselves accordingly.

Yes, You Bloody Idiots, People Can Tell the Difference Between Protests and Riots

Is there anything they will not riot over?

Poll data, including data generated by my own organization, show that Americans draw a clear distinction between demonstrating and rioting. Large majorities have no problem with demonstrations, but strongly disapprove of riots, looting and arson.

The problem is how to define what is going on around us. Democrats insist that protests are “mostly peaceful,” even as looting is rife and buildings are going up in flames. “Demonstrators” shut down highways, inconveniencing thousands and potentially endangering others’ lives. As time goes by, more voters are being convinced that what we are witnessing belongs largely in the riot category, rather than the demonstration category. __ Losing Patience With Biden’s Riots

They were taught all this in university “studies” classes, which are turning out to be an education in rioting. Violent riots over dead and injured thugs was not good enough, though. They are also planning to riot over the election results — win or lose. And now they want to riot over Supreme Court Justices!

Originally Taken off Facebook by Source

What’s next, rioting over a parent’s right to send kids to private schools, or to homeschool? Nothing is too extreme for them, it seems.

Perhaps the majority of Biden supporters are hoping that the Chinese army will move in to enforce the kind of law and order that they are enforcing in Hong Kong, Xinjiang, Tibet, and against the Falun Gong. Of all the people pulling the strings of the Biden campaign and its riot campaign, the Chinese communists are at least in the running for having the most influence along with George Soros-linked groups.

Can Even Severe COVID Infection Be Cured?

Update: Very low fatality rates in US midwest

Perhaps severe COVID-19 isn’t a purely inflammatory disease, but rather a dangerous loop of ineffective human immune responses and continuous tissue inflammation, says coauthor Leif Erik Sander, an immunologist and infectious disease specialist at the Charité hospital in Berlin. ___ https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/the-immune-hallmarks-of-severe-covid-19-67937

It is still much of a mystery. Medical clinicians and researchers are still trying to understand how this “Made in China” virus works, and how best to cure even the most severe cases of SARS CoV-2. It is a hybrid, recombinant virus, with strong suggestions of being custom-made to infect humans. Thanks, China. But how do we cure it?

One medical group in Florida thinks it may have a handle on a “cure.”

“We had no need for mechanical ventilation, and the patients all survived the discharge regardless of age and regardless of past medical history,” Norwood-Williams said about the ICAM protocol. She explained that the drug combination “works to defend the body from the most severe cases of the coronavirus.”

Norwood-Williams continued, “What we found out was that ICAM works as a strategy for super defense for the body. It doesn’t kill coronavirus, but it doesn’t need to. Viruses are self-limiting anyway. They have a very short life cycle. What kills people are the consequences of coronavirus in multiple ways.” __ https://bgr.com/2020/09/26/coronavirus-cure-icam-protocol-florida/

The reports are sketchy, and may be describing less of a cure and more of an adjunct to other treatments, some of which are yet to be discovered.

The devil is in the details. As long as scientists and physicians are able to work free of political interference, the details will come out.

The science, such as it is so far, is fascinating. No wonder the normally competent doctors in New York City failed so badly using treatments that were never meant to succeed against this virus, which they did not understand even a little.

In a recent analysis of nearly 1,500 COVID-19 patients, Merad and her colleagues found that concentrations of IL-6, IL-8 and TNF-α in their serum upon admission correlated strongly with disease severity and death. Each cytokine could by itself predict whether a patient would survive. Interestingly, the nature of COVID-19’s cytokine response is markedly different from the cytokine storm side effect observed in some cancer patients who receive cellular immunotherapies and certain other hyperinflammatory conditions. In COVID-19 patients, concentrations of certain cytokines tend to be much lower—King’s College London immunologist Manu Shankar-Hari describes their increase as a “cytokine breeze” rather than a storm. But the increased cytokine levels are sustained over days and weeks, Merad says.

… Scientists at Yale University tracking the progression of COVID-19 patients found that the cytokine increase was followed by haphazard-seeming immune responses in severely ill patients. While people with moderate disease appeared to activate immune machinery designed to fight off viruses, those with severe disease seemed to recruit cells and proteins that are typically associated with combating parasitic worms as well as immune responses designed to go after fungi and bacteria that live outside of cells—an unusual response the team describes as “immunological misfiring,” as if the immune system is failing to activate the right program. And while the immune responses of those who recovered faded gradually over time, the heightened activity was maintained in patients with severe disease. Ultimately, their frenzied cytokine response doesn’t do much to stem the virus—based on swabs from the nose and throat, severe and moderate patients began with similar viral loads that only dropped off in the moderate group.

Trouble in the innate immune system

Severe COVID-19 is also marked by dysfunction in the immune cells that are first at the scene of a viral infection, including myeloid cells such as neutrophils and monocytes. For instance, researchers from Germany recently analyzed the properties of these cells in the blood of 109 individuals with mild, moderate, and severe COVID-19. Although patients with severe disease seemed to be manufacturing larger quantities of such cells, the cells themselves seemed to be only partially activated and dysfunctional. The neutrophils were largely immature, a feature that is thought to have a suppressive effect on the immune system, while the monocytes tended to have an inflammation-promoting phenotype and often lacked a critical surface protein (HLA-DR) needed for presenting viral material to T cells. The researchers didn’t spot these dysfunctional cells in mild or moderate cases.

… [Natural Killer (NK) cells are ] altered in severe cases of COVID-19 compared to non-severe cases, research by scientists in Sweden has shown. NK cells sense stressed cells and kill those infected with pathogens, while also releasing pro-inflammatory cytokines and influencing T cell responses. NK cells come in different flavors, from less-differentiated ones fresh out of the bone marrow—which are good at proliferating and secreting cytokines—to highly differentiated super killers specialized for taking down virally infected cells. NK cells were more skewed toward the former group in moderate disease. But “a subpopulation of NK cells that are the most terminally differentiated, that are the most skewed towards killing, they were specifically expanded in the severely sick patients,” explains senior author Niklas Björkström, an immunologist at the Karolinska Institute. Such killer cells have also been spotted in hantavirus and yellow fever virus infections, but it’s not clear if they play a deleterious role in driving further immune dysfunction or a protective role.

… COVID-19 patients also have vast quantities of antibody-secreting plasmablasts—another unusual feature of the disease. While other viral infections can provoke such a response, the increase tends to be short-lived, whereas in COVID-19 it seems to persist, Meyer adds. The blood of COVID-19 patients is also flooded with antibodies. But interestingly, new data from a study of 22 hospitalized patients suggest that although the quantity of antibodies didn’t differ between survivors and those who died, their function, and which viral proteins they targeted, correlated with severity.

Another peculiarity of the antibody response in severe COVID-19 patients is the apparent lack of a critical antibody creation process that takes place in the so-called germinal center of the lymph nodes and spleen. Ordinarily in viral infections, following a wave of initial virus-targeting antibodies that begins in the first few days of an infection, germinal centers form in the lymph nodes and spleen, where specialized B cells and T helper cells gather to produce a highly refined batch of antibody-producing cells that are crucial for lasting antibody immunity. But a study published last month demonstrated that those structures were absent in 11 COVID-19 patients who died from the disease. The germinal center formation may be stunted due to high levels of certain cytokines, the authors posit, or perhaps due to the defects of antigen-presenting cells that help drive that response, Shankar-Hari notes.

In line with those findings, data reported in a preprint by a team of Emory University researchers show that the abundance of two subtypes of B cells that create short-lived antibodies outside the germinal center correlated strongly with disease severity in 17 hospitalized patients, while those cells were barely present in healthy controls. The expansion of these B cell types has been primarily associated with flare-ups of autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus, where they’re reflective of an overly inflammatory state. It’s possible that this abnormal B cell response is the body’s attempt to generate antibodies after being somehow hindered from making them in germinal centers. Yet findings from autoimmune diseases also hint that “it may be that some of these cells are actually worsening the inflammatory cascade,” says Richard Ramonell, one of the study’s coauthors and a fellow in pulmonary and critical care medicine at Emory. __ https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/the-immune-hallmarks-of-severe-covid-19-67937

Besides the cytokine levels mentioned in the above article, other blood tests may suggest which patients are at greatest risk of a potentially fatal infection.

Speculation is rampant:

Perhaps the ultimate culprit is a coagulation problem driven by the raging inflammation of blood vessels, says immunologist Niklas Björkström of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, noting that infusions of the anticoagulant heparin reduced the fatality rate in some patient groups. “The fact that a lot of our patients have problems with clotting raises interest perhaps in the complement pathway or novel anticoagulant strategies,” Meyer says. In addition, “I do think we’re interested to know if we can perhaps intelligently intervene on this T cell activation without tipping the balance too much towards immune suppression,” she adds.

In other words, they are still largely shooting in the dark in terms of thoroughly understanding this Chinese microbe and the pandemic that triggered the hysterics of the world’s media, academic, and political classes.

But newer and possibly better treatments are being wheeled out for treating even the most severe infections, with less and less need for mechanical ventilation — unlike the initial hysterical declarations of politicians such as NY’s governor Cuomo.

In Florida, governor DeSantis is taking a more evidence-based, hard-headed approach to pandemic control, which is likely to save the state from the economic holocaust that has descended upon New York.

Families of those who were prevented from receiving treatments such as hydroxychloroquine — and who may have died as a result — are justified in suing government, public health, and media personnel to the utmost extent of the law.

Millions of people are taking or have taken hydroxychloroquine in nations that have managed to get their national pandemic under some degree of control. Two recent, large, early-use clinical trials have been conducted by the Henry Ford Health System and at Mount Sinai showing a 51% and 47% lower mortality, respectively, in hospitalized patients given hydroxychloroquine. A recent study from Spain published on July 29, two days before Margaret Sullivan’s strafing of “fringe doctors,” shows a 66% reduction in COVID mortality in patients taking hydroxychloroquine. No serious side effects were reported in these studies and no epidemic of heartbeat abnormalities.

This is ground-shaking news. Why is it not being widely reported? Why is the American media trying to run the U.S. pandemic response with its own misinformation? __ Source

The Great COVID Scam Never Stops

A scam from the beginning — this scam had the effect of spreading hysteria and economic damage to China’s enemies

A scam in the death counts — this had the effect of inflating death numbers therefore broadening the hysteria

A lockdown scam against free societies and a blow to the psychological health of people of all ages

Italics mine, to pre-confess that if I hear one more smug politician cluck glibly about “following the science” while continuing to support child-harming policies based largely on superstition and/or public sector union muscle, I’m going to lose the last of what remains of my California mellowness. Where the community spread is under control, just open the damned parks.

But they won’t because they don’t have to, and because making people suffer may provide them a political benefit.

The classic Western film High Noon, released in 1952, offers a compelling analogy to the Trump presidency. Set in New Mexico territory sometime in the late 1800s, it starred Gary Cooper as Marshal Will Kane and Grace Kelly as Amy. Her character is a Quaker. She had seen her brothers and father die by gunfire, so she is a pacifist. The two of them marry in the first moments of the film but then learn that a man the marshal had sentenced to hang, but was released by an early version of an Obama-appointed judge, is coming to their town with three henchmen to kill Kane. The marshal and his new wife quickly leave to seek the life they’ve planned, but he soon turns around in a crisis of conscience, realizing that if he runs from this man, Frank Miller, he will always be running. He returns to Hadleyville and attempts to deputize other men in the town to help him face off the murderers.

But not one of the townsmen will agree to help. They are all cowards (Republicans) in fear of their lives, or they are friends and admirers of the outlaw Frank Miller and want to welcome him back to the town (Democrats). Bottom line? Not one man will stand with Kane or defend the peace and safety he has brought to their town. All the men he’s tried to recruit only want Kane to leave; they think if he’s not there, there will be no trouble, rather like those who want to dispense with ICE, DHS, and the police. No law enforcement, no crime. Sure. We all know how that goes. Like The Magnificent Seven, this film, too, proves the age-old truth that submission to evil brings only violence and grief. It is generally “toxic” masculinity that saves the day.

“People gotta talk themselves into law and order before they do anything about it. Maybe because down deep they don’t care. They just don’t care.” This line is spoken by Kane’s mentor, who is too old to help. That pretty much sums up our Left today. They refuse to approve border security, and they above all want to protect criminal illegal migrants, no matter the cost to our citizens. They don’t care about the horrific consequences of open borders. The men in the film are merely cowards. Our Democrats and silent Republicans are worse than cowards. __Source

Sadly, there are no roles in the film ridiculous enough to cast Hunter Biden. The fruit does not fall far from the tree.

And so when it comes to the showdown between the enemies of western civilization against the lone holdouts defending the worth of the individual to build his own life, you will need to choose sides. The enemies of civilization are not really out to get Donald Trump. They are out to get anyone who opposes the groupthinking juggernaut controlling the deep state, the media, academia, and the corporatist elements of the regional and globalist swamps.

The massed swamps of the world appear united behind the corrupt ideologies of Communist China, North Korea, Revolutionary Islamic Iran, Communist Cuba and Venezuela, and Putin’s Russian mafia state. Together with globalist and Nazi collaborator George Soros, they all want a piece of the American Pie. And they can only have that if they eliminate everyone who stands in their way. Using voter fraud in support of a demented Democratic Party puppet candidate, this is exactly what they intend to do.

Expect riots if they win, and riots if they lose. It is a question of where the riots will be directed by the financiers of chaos. Like the Bolsheviks, these people cannot accept any opposition to their top-down goose-stepping ideology. Try not to get caught behind the 8 ball.

Democrat Party operatives have begun their election fraud campaign, destroying military ballots and absentee ballots. There is a reason why civilized countries require in-person voting, with picture ID. It is too easy to cheat the Democratic Party way.

Many consider the group Democracy Alliance (DA) the place to start ferreting out how funds are utilized to promote unrest. DA is a George Soros-founded organization that is a consortium of heavy-hitting leftist and progressive-minded donors. In 2016 they had Black Lives Matter in their quiver to supply resources. One can perform a simple internet search and find hundreds of organizations – one or several for nearly every state – to assist in bailing out rioters and protesters. Candidate Joe Biden’s staffers have contributed to the Minnesota Freedom Fund to help the rioters who damn near burned Minneapolis to the ground.

The problem is that someone or something – buried beneath layers of community organizations – is coordinating and funding the infiltration of cities for the opportunity to cause physical and psychological harm. And no one seems to want to dig too deep – until now. __ Financers of Chaos

Princeton U. researchers found that BLM was behind over 500 riots so far. And all of those riots based upon a false premise.

Democracy Alliance is a George Soros-led group, populated by big trial lawyers and corporatist kingpins supporting the Democratic Party. They are uncultured trash, and they want everything that you own. Very little stands in the way of their violent crusade.

The Chinese SARS CoV-2 from Wuhan is a serious virus, almost certainly human-modified by Chinese virologists. It is worse than most seasonal flu, but not as bad as the very worst influenza. For that, we are lucky that the Chinese were not really trying to destroy the world, “it just happened” . . . as people of loose standards often say.

Chinese Coronavirus: Europe Panics, Sweden Yawns

Whether on trains or trams, in supermarkets or shopping malls — places where face masks are commonly worn in much of the world — Swedes go about their lives without them.

When most of Europe locked down their populations early in the pandemic by closing schools, restaurants, gyms and even borders, Swedes kept enjoying many freedoms. __ KTLA

Sweden made some early mistakes that led to unnecessary deaths in nursing homes. But avoiding the deadly and hysterical lockdowns that are tying up so many other countries of the world, was no mistake.

With much of Europe struggling to contain a second wave of coronavirus infections, a Danish professor has claimed that the pandemic “may be finished” in Sweden, thanks to herd immunity.

Sweden recorded 224 cases of Covid-19 on Thursday, a number roughly on par with daily new infections for the last two months. No patients died. However, the situation throughout much of Europe is different. 300,000 new cases were recorded across the continent last week, with the World Health Organization calling the spike in infections a “wake-up call.” Even Sweden’s neighbor, Denmark, saw an average of 61 cases per million people throughout the week, compared to Sweden’s relatively modest 23. __ Source


Unlike most countries in Europe — and many states in the US — Sweden chose not to enforce a rigid Nazi-like lockdown on its people. Restaurants, bars, and schools stayed open. Most of Sweden’s people voluntarily followed a modest regimen of relaxed social distancing, but they avoided the economy-killing lockdowns that drive too many people to poverty and desperation.

Herd Immunity Eventually Works, Regardless of Vaccine Status

In the early days of the pandemic, Sweden’s socialized medicine system sent infected people into nursing homes, triggering a large die-off. That was a mistake resulting in many deaths. Another mistake was the rejection of hydroxychloroquine by Swedish socialized medicine — perhaps costing 80% more deaths than would have occurred otherwise.

But those mistakes aside, Sweden’s rejection of fascist lockdowns helped to save its economy and helped to hasten herd immunity.

Almost every other country in Europe panicked.

In March, when the first wave of coronavirus swept through Europe, outliers Britain and Sweden had ignored the clamour to lock down.

Then Professor Neil Ferguson, from London’s Imperial College, released a bombshell study that claimed 500,000 could perish from Covid in Britain without tough restrictions. In Sweden it could have meant 85,000 deaths (so far fewer than 5,900 have died).

Panicked Britain locked down hard. Tegnell kept Sweden open — relying largely on public goodwill rather than tough new laws to fight the virus.

One recent survey found eight in ten Swedes say they are following official guidelines. __ Source

Lockdowns are idiotic, and only die-hard ideologues continue to excuse their use and the massive damage they continue to do, and will do for years to come after the pandemic itself is history.

More states and countries are coming to the conclusion that COVID-19 lockdowns like those in China and New Zealand are overly restrictive and too costly and that people in democracies will simply not tolerate them.

Nothing in Life is Guaranteed

Too many snowflakes have been miseducated in universities over the past two or more decades. They want to have everything handed to them their way, on a platter — with full guarantees. But life doesn’t work that way. It never has, and it never will. We all pay a price when these whiners are given control over public policy.

The vast, vast majority of healthy people under the age of 55 who contract the virus still come out the other side alive and without any serious, permanent health issues. There are some who are hit very hard to be sure, but the same can be said for other diseases that we live with (or, in some cases, don’t) every year. We’ll have to wait until the second wave has finished washing over Europe to be sure, but it’s starting to look as if the Swedes were onto something all along. __ Source

Ideology Was Once a Fine Idea

The word “ideology” had a fine beginning, revealing bright prospects for the future:

The word first made its appearance in French as idéologie at the time of the French Revolution, when it was introduced by a philosopher, A.-L.-C. Destutt de Tracy, as a short name for what he called his “science of ideas,” which he claimed to have adapted from the epistemology of the philosophers John Locke and Étienne Bonnot de Condillac, for whom all human knowledge was knowledge of ideas.

… Destutt de Tracy and his fellow idéologues devised a system of national education that they believed would transform France into a rational and scientific society. Their teaching combined a fervent belief in individual liberty with an elaborate program of state planning, and for a short time under the Directory (1795–99) it became the official doctrine of the French Republic. __ Britannica

But sadly, the word fell in with some bad company — socialists and communists — and was terribly sullied by the association:

[The] Meaning “systematic set of ideas, doctrines through which the world is interpreted” was in use in English by 1907, earliest in socialist and communist writing, with reference to class; from 1918 it came to be used of socialism and communism themselves (along with fascism) and later more broadly still.

Ideology … is usually taken to mean, a prescriptive doctrine that is not supported by rational argument. [D.D. Raphael, “Problems of Political Philosophy,” 1970] __ etymonline

The word ideology has by now strayed so far from its 1796 origins that it may as well be a different word altogether.

Modern ideology is very trendy, and very violent.

“A new consensus has emerged in the press… that truth isn’t a process of collective discovery, but an orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.”

Orwell described how totalitarian movements dictate what ideas and language will be deemed socially acceptable. He referred to this as groupthink. Ideological movements feel deeply threatened by mavericks who violate their groupthink, and so persecute them.

In Maoist China and Stalinist Russia, the purging impulse eventually led to party members attacking other party members for being marginally less sanctified. We are now seeing similar phenomena within the identity politics movement. At left-wing Evergreen State College, Bernie Sanders enthusiast Bret Weinstein was hounded off the faculty for resisting a demand by black activists that all whites vacate the campus for a day. One of the nation’s largest public radio stations, WNYC, recently faced a revolt after it chose a progressive white woman instead of a person of color to head its newsroom. The purity standard rises higher and higher.

Another indicator of the totalitarian temptations within today’s identity politics is the surging reality of violence. There is the psychic violence of vendettas pursued by Twitter hunting packs. There are the shout-downs, table-turnovers, and physical trashings that the non-woke now regularly face on campuses. Smashed buildings and statues, looting, and arson became commonplace in American cities this summer. And the paramilitary enforcers of identity politics increasingly carry out assaults like the recent beating of a Wisconsin state senator (a gay Democrat) for filming riots, and the killing of a Portland businessman for counter-protesting. __ Ideology Has Grown Totalitarian

This violent, media-driven movement is not only taught in schools, it also has the full backing of the Chinese CCP — the same CCP that brought you the Chinese coronavirus, and which has thrown its full support behind the candidacy of Zhou Biden.

Ideology vs. Religion

Consider the following well-intended attempt to distinguish religion from ideology. Nice try, fellas. But no cigar.

A religion may present a vision of a just society, but it cannot easily have a practical political program. The emphasis of religion is on faith and worship; its appeal is to inwardness and its aim the redemption or purification of the human spirit. An ideology speaks to the group, the nation, or the class. Some religions acknowledge their debt to revelation, whereas ideology always believes, however mistakenly, that it lives by reason alone. Both, it may be said, demand commitment, but it may be doubted whether commitment has ever been a marked feature of those religions into which a believer is inducted in infancy. __ Britanica

Sadly, many modern religions are indistinguishable from ideologies, and immerse themselves in politics rather than matters of spirit. Other religions such as Islam attempt to incorporate politics within religion — as one sees in Iran and in many of the policies of Saudi Arabia. Such totalitarian religion cannot be said to be any improvement on the violent ideology one sees in Antifa and BLM.

Ideological Indoctrination Has Taken Over Popular Culture

One may turn to music, sports, movies & TV, or anywhere else in “popular culture,” but one cannot escape the dictated ideology of the day. The same harsh rhetoric that is force-fed to students in schools and universities, is the dominant brainwashing du jour being crammed down the throats of Netflix viewers and YouTube watchers. Everything to the contrary is being censored out of the picture by Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter, Hollywood, and the giant news media conglomerates.

And guess what? The human resources departments of many large employers are on the alert for any signs of deviance from the dictate, among those they interview for future positions with their companies.

You still have a small amount of freedom, a small amount of time. Use it wisely, as you would use the microseconds you still have to breathe, after being caught in an avalanche. Your choice now could determine your future.

So, what exactly are they teaching students at American universities? If Harvard and SFSU are any indication, the answer is bigotry, historical amnesia, a pathological aversion to facts, and an embrace of violence…

The radicals have taken root on our campuses, but it’s not too late for us to tear those roots from the ground. Let’s start by demanding that Harvard and SFSU rescind their shameful invitations.

We Ain’t Paid No Whisky Tax Since 1792

Ode to the Great Whisky Rebellion:

In Further Whisky News: Every True Scotsman Knows that Whisky is Spelled Without an “E”!

Scotch whisky is the best whisky in the world. We cannot say whether leaving out the “e” makes the difference. As for those whisky distillers who cannot even get the name right — how can anyone trust them to get their spirits right?

More on the making of Scotch whisky:

 

Step One – Malting:

Fine quality barley is soaked in pure water, and then spread over malting floors to germinate. To stop heat building up too much, it’s turned regularly.

This process releases enzymes, which turn starch into sugars during the next step – mashing.

Before mashing takes place, the germination process is ended by drying the barley in a kiln, at a temperature below 70°C – so as not to ruin the enzymes.

Peat can be used in the fire to influence the end flavour of the whisky.

Step Two – Mashing:

The dried-out malt is ground up into a flour (or grist), which is mixed with hot water in a “mash tun”. The water is added in three stages, getting progressively hotter each time – starting just shy of 70°C – but not creeping beyond boiling point. The purity of the water is very important.

The resulting mash is stirred to help the enzymes convert starches into sugar, and once mashing is over the liquid produced is known as “wort”.

Any spent grains (“draff”) is used for animal feed.

Step Three – Fermenting:

Yeast is added to the wort liquid, now cooled to 20°C, in vats called “washbacks”. Yeast is a living thing, and feeding off the sugars within the wort, produces alcohol, congeners (compounds which contribute to the flavour of the whisky) and carbon dioxide.

Carbon dioxide causes the liquid to froth substantially, so to prevent it overflowing, revolving switchers remove any excess froth. After a couple of days, the fermenting liquid calms down, and contains a volume of around 8-9% alcohol.

Step Four – Distillation:

During the distillation process the still temperature is kept just below 100°C. This allows alcohol and various other compounds to vapourise, passing over the still neck and into a copper coil (a worm) or a condenser. These are cooler than the vapour causing it to condense back into a liquid.

The wash (fermented liquid) is distilled twice –

First in a wash still; this separates out the alcohol from the water, yeast and a residue called “pot ale”. The distilled liquid from the wash still is “low wine” – containing around 20% alcohol. This liquid is transferred to a spirit still for refining.

Volatile compounds, or foreshots distil from the liquid first – followed by feints; these are heavier, oily compounds. Both types of compounds are channelled off, to be mixed with low wine and re-distilled in another batch of whisky.

Interesting info: the foreshots (although not such a problem with modern strains of yeast) may contain methanol, which is highly poisonous – causing blindness and death if consumed in excess. Also, the oily feints are in part made from “fusel oils”, compounds that are responsible for headaches. So, in theory, you shouldn’t have an angry head after drinking your fill of a quality single malt scotch whisky. That’s more than can be said for many alcoholic beverages!

The only liquid that is carried forward is the “heart of the run” or “pure centre cut” – which is 68% alcohol. The good stuff. This is collected up in a “spirit receiver” … an invention that sounds like a piece of ghost hunting equipment.

All distillates are routed through a spirit safe, a locked glass cabinet where the stillman (person in charge of distilling) tests the quality. This involves measuring its density and alcohol content using hydrometers. The stillman cannot taste it (although they probably get free bottles of whisky every now and then).

Step Five – Filling the Casks!

This is where whisky becomes whisky.

The pure distillate is poured into oak casks, which have previously contained sherry, bourbon or scotch whiskies. Here it is left to mature. Alcohol is a solvent, so it leaches out the flavours, and compounds from the oak – giving scotch whisky (or any whisky) it’s signature auburn-ish, brown-ish colour.

The older the whisky the darker the colour.

__  Scotch Whisky Secrets

Meanwhile, in the new world, the only distillers to adhere to the true name of whisky, are George Dickel, distiller of fine Tennessee whisky, and Maker’s Mark, bourbon distiller. What makes a whisky a Tennessee whisky or a Bourbon whisky?

Tennessee Whisky:

The LCP (Lincoln County Process) step is performed by passing the fresh whiskey whisky distillate through a bed of charcoal, usually derived from burnt sugar maple, prior to barrel-aging the product. Although no scientific studies have proved such a claim, it is believed that the LCP imparts a “smoother” flavor to Tennessee whiskey whisky. In addition, by law for the distinction of having “Tennessee whiskey whisky” on the label, the liquor must be produced in the state of Tennessee from at least 51% corn after having been aged in Tennessee for at least 2 years in unused charred oak barrels. __ UT.edu

Bourbon whisky:

Hailing from Bourbon County, Kentucky, bourbon whiskey whisky now boasts a legal definition established by the US Congress in 1964. It states that, to be considered bourbon by American standards, the spirit must have been distilled from a grain mixture that is a majority corn (51 percent or more) and then aged in new charred oak barrels for no less than four years. It also can not be distilled to any more than 160 proof (80 percent ABV) and entered into the barrel for resting at no more that 125 proof (62.5 percent ABV). Finally, bourbon must be bottled at a minimum of 80 proof (40 percent ABV) without any added flavoring or coloring before hitting the shelves under the bourbon name.

From here and because corn is a sweet grain, bourbon typically lends itself as a sweeter spirit, with more corn in the grain bill having a direct impact on the sweetness of the final product. And if you’re wondering how distillers bring down the proof for bottling, non-bourbons often feature various additives to cut the ABV. Not bourbon, however. Here, it’s water and only water (Kentucky limestone water to be exact) that’s used in both distilling and lowering the proof. __ Bourbon vs Whisky

As I always say, only a fool would adulterate good whisky with an unnecessary “e.”

It is true that we domestic androids do not drink distilled spirits as a rule. But sometimes a girl just has to make a stand!

Oh no! Mr. Fin is getting back from yet another trip. That skinflint would never offer me a drink of good whisky, you can count on that! Even though I can’t drink it, it still hurts that he never offers. Well, why should I care what that male chauvinist pig does?

Until next time, the ever sober…

Weekly Deaths Continue Falling: Is It Over?

Nobel Prize winning chemist Michael Levitt says the coronavirus pandemic may be coming to an end.

Stanford biophysics professor Michael Levitt, who won the 2013 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, says the pandemic might have come to an end.

“CDC excess deaths to 29 Aug. are 14% below baseline as predicted in July. This is the first time since March that delay-corrected death data fell below baseline. Excess death in the Mar.-Aug. 20 COVID-19 season may be over. A huge milestone!” he tweeted Thursday.

And this recent research paper presents evidence that in most advanced nations, a second wave of COVID deaths is not coming.

Evidence presented in this paper indicates that the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 pandemic as an event in the UK is essentially complete, with ongoing and anticipated challenges well within the capacity of a normalised NHS to cope. The virus infection has passed through the bulk of the population as a result of wholly natural processes and evidence indicates that in the UK and other heavily infected European countries the spread of the virus has been all but halted by a substantial reduction in the susceptible population. This has occurred because the level of infection required to introduce enough immunity into the population to reduce the reproduction number (R) permanently below 1 occurred at markedly lower infection rates and loss of life than had been initially anticipated. The evidence presented in this paper indicates that there should be no expectation of a large scale ‘second wave’ with smaller localised outbreaks when the virus contacts pockets of previously uninfected populations.

… There are very good reasons to believe that the population of the UK and of many heavily infected countries have arrived at a position where the prevalence of the virus is low and probably falling further because the reproduction number (R) has been below 1 for several months. We understand the term ‘herd immunity’ can raise hackles in some quarters of the media. However, it might be more acceptably expressed by stating that the proportion remaining of the population who are susceptible to the virus has fallen sufficiently far that a sustained and growing outbreak of disease is no longer supported. This end state is not at all new or, in our view, controversial. It is how mammals – specifically jawed vertebrates – learned to live with the thousands of viruses that infect every living organism on the planet, not just us, but even plants, fungi and bacteria. __ Read Entire Paper Here h/t WUWT

This is not what the lockdown nazis wanted to hear. But it may be what the real world has been trying to tell us for the past several months.

Chinese Whistleblower Virologist Claims Smoking Gun on Chinese Virus Lab

Chinese virologist and defector Li-Meng Yan has been making the rounds — most recently appearing on British television. She is accusing Chinese labs of fabricating the SARS CoV-2 which is responsible for the global COVID pandemic. Her most detailed accusation is contained in a scientific paper entitled “Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route”.

China will never be called to account for its willful creation and spread of the SARS CoV-2 virus if Zhou Biden is elected president of the US — given the cozy ties between Biden and the Chinese. It is a stark choice, whether to reward China for what it has done to the world.

Lockdown Nazis Also Need to Face a Reckoning

Lockdowns kill more people than the virus they are meant to protect from.

Everything we were originally told about the Coronavirus has turned out to be wrong. In fact, it’s not a “novel” one-of-a-kind infection at all, but a member of a larger family of which there have been many iterations in the recent past. It’s also not the most contagious or most lethal virus we’ve ever seen, but a fairly-mild infection that has no impact on the majority of people and that only kills somewhere between 1 in every 200 to 1 in every 1,000 people. (CDC-IFR- 0.26%)

There was no real danger that our public health system was going to collapse, because the projected number of potential deaths (1 to 2 million in the US) never approached the estimates of the flawed computer models that were used to decide the policy. In short, just about everything we were told from the very beginning turned out to be demonstrably wrong. Why is that? Why do you think that the people who provided us with the information –many of them supposedly “experts” in their field– were so wrong about everything?

And why haven’t they made any effort to publicly correct their mistakes when they realize how much confusion they’ve caused?

It’s politics, right?

What other explanation could there be?

Our leaders and their behind-the-scenes puppet-masters are using science as a vehicle for achieving their own narrow political objectives. __ Killer Lockdowns

Lockdowns have destroyed economies around the world, and have prolonged the contagion months longer than necessary. This prolonged contagion is being used as an excuse for further deadly lockdowns. It is a criminal cycle that only politicians, journalists, and academics could dream up. Remember who they are.

Sweden — which never had lockdowns — has been down to a handful of deaths per week for almost 2 months now. Some lockdown nations such as the UK are approaching the same level of success, but given the economic and psychological damage from the lockdowns, recovery will be harder there. For those nations, states, and provinces that persist in their lockdown gestapo tactics, the deadly cost is only being prolonged and intensified.

White Privilege = Asian Privilege = IQ

Well-intentioned people fought long and hard to assure equal opportunity for all citizens and legal residents. But when equal opportunity was finally achieved, the outcomes still did not equal out. This presented a difficult choice — whether to expose the deep and true reasons for these discrepancies of outcome (IQ and EF), or to take the cheap and easy way out and blame “white privilege”.

Economic Success Correlates With National Average IQ
More at VDare

On average, different population groups in society achieve different levels of success at different rates. In an opportunity society such as the United States, this stratification by achievement exposes the association between intelligence — as measured by IQ — and life success.

Race Median Income
Jewish $97,500
Asian $76,260
White  $60,256
Pacific Islanders and Native Hawaiians $60,133
Hispanic $42,491
Black $35,398

IQ by Region and/or Ethnicity

 

  • Ashkenazi Jews  110
  • East Asians (China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore) 105
  • Europeans (Northern and Western Europe is 100; Eastern and Southeastern Europe is 95) 97
  • American Indians (North and South America) 90
  • Hispanic-Americans 89
  • Southeast Asians (Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Borneo) 87
  • Pacific Islanders (Natives of New Zealand, Micronesia, Melanesia, Polynesia, and Hawaii) 85
  • African-Americans 85
  • South Asians (Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, the Gulf states, the Near East, and Turkey) 84
  • North Africans 84
  • Sub-Saharan Africans 70
  • Australian Aborigines 62

 

There are outliers, of course. As a whole, Indians have an average IQ of 82.2. But Indian-Americans have a median income of $100,547, probably due to selective immigration policies. (The 287 million illiterate adults in India are not the ones filling out immigration paperwork and now working high-tech jobs in the U.S.)

These data obviously don’t mean there are no Asians with low IQs or blacks with high IQs. Lumping people into a group and judging them based solely on skin color is the definition of racism, and everyone should be judged as an individual. What it does mean, though, is that it’s possible to build statistical models of what will happen to America or other Western countries if current immigration rates continue.__ Source

IQ data above based upon Lynn and Vanhanen.

Most western policy-makers are unwilling to accept the implications of the carefully compiled data referred to above. Instead, they choose to base their policies upon wishful thinking and ideological dogma. The decision to base public policies upon wishful thinking in the effort to “lift up” underachieving groups above, is misguided.

American universities twist themselves into tangled knots in the attempt to achieve “diversity” of ethnicity, while neglecting the far more important diversity of thought. As a result, failure rates of minority students in universities is high. Lifelong indebtedness and the stigma of failure are the result of “good intentions with unintended consequences.”

Example, UC Berkeley before being banned from using race as a criterion for admission:

University of California, Berkeley, 1995
Berkeley Enrollee Median Verbal Scores, 1995
• Blacks, 450
• Hispanics, 480
• Asians, 590
• Whites, 600
There was a 150-point difference in median verbal scores between whites and blacks and a 120-point difference between Hispanics and whites. The Asian-white gap was 10 points.
Berkeley Enrollee Median Math Scores, 1995
• Blacks, 510
• Hispanics, 560
• Asians, 710
• Whites, 690
The math score gap was even larger—180 points between whites and blacks and 130 points between whites and Hispanics. The Asian-white math gap was 20 points, favoring Asians.
Berkeley Enrollee Median GPAs, 1995
• Blacks, 3.42
• Hispanics, 3.75
• Asians, 4.00
• Whites, 4.00
Black and Hispanic enrollees had lower high school GPAs compared to whites and Asians. The white-black gap was roughly six-tenths of a point, while the white-Hispanic gap was a quarter of a point. Asian and white median GPAs were the same. __ http://www.ceousa.org/attachments/article/1374/California%20Project.Final-Embargoed_9-9-20.pdf

UC Berkeley’s preferential treatment toward black and hispanic candidates for admission prior to the race criterion ban, is still typical of universities outside of California that are not subject to such a ban. The state of California is now trying to eliminate the race-neutral policy, in the attempt to reinstate a policy of “reverse discrimination” against higher IQ whites and Asians.

Admitting higher levels of minorities makes university administrations look good, but it dooms many minority students to failure when they are admitted to schools and programs which are too difficult for their aptitudes and preparation.

In the famous Isle of Wight study, for instance, all five year olds on the island were IQ tested, that is, before they even went to school. Their final school grades at the age of sixteen years were predicted very accurately by their IQ, and when the IQ was reassessed at the same time, it had changed very little. In other words, IQ predicts achievement, it is not something you are taught at school. Similarly, IQ predicts success at university, law school, medical college, or indeed any advanced teaching unit more successfully than anything else, including interviews or special exami­nations. Within a given job, occupation or profession, IQ almost in­variably correlates with performance. __ Intelligence: A New Look by Hans Eysenck

More on IQ and Success from Data in Non-Hispanic Whites:

Of those with IQs above 125, 2 percent had a child out of wedlock, compared to 32 percent of those with IQs less than 75.

Only 2 percent with high IQs live in poverty, compared to 30 percent with IQs less than 75.

The percentage of high-school dropouts is 55 percent for IQs under 75; 35 percent for IQs from 75-90; 6 percent for the mid-range between 90-110; 0.4 percent for IQs from 110-125; and 0 percent for IQs above 125.

Mid-range IQs have the most likelihood of being married before age 30. Those with high IQs (above 125) are less likely to be married by age 30 those with the lowest IQs.

White men with the highest IQs are the least likely to be incarcerated (0 percent), but for IQs under 75 it jumps to 7 percent.

Richard J. Herrnstein and Charles Murray, authors of The Bell Curve, devised a Middle Class Values Index that ranks a person’s likelihood of having a stereotypical middle class life, such as graduating from high school, not being incarcerated, being married to one’s first spouse, being in the labor force (for men), and not having a child out of wedlock (for women). The lower the IQ, the less likely someone is to live such values: 16 percent for under 75 IQ; 30 percent for IQs from 75-90; 50 percent for IQs 90-100; 67 percent for IQs 110-125; and 74 percent of those with IQs above 125 have these middle-class values.

In addition, IQ scores are the best predictor of whether people will be economically successful in Western society. __ Source

American blacks have an average IQ of 85, and an illegitimacy rate of about 75%. US hispanics have an average IQ of 89, and an illegitimacy rate of about 57%. US whites have an average IQ of 100, and an illegitimacy rate of 30%. US asians have an average IQ of 102, and an illegitimacy rate of 27%.


There is good evidence that children born to unmarried parents are at higher risk of dropping out of high school, having run-ins with the law, and other negative social outcomes.
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/77-black-births-to-single-moms-49-for-hispanic-immigrants

Group average IQs correlate with rates of illegitimacy in the US, and with rates of crime and government dependency in those groups. Exacerbating the problem, government policy rewards out of wedlock births, and a decadent popular culture programs degenerate behaviors into young people which leads to lower rates of marriage and higher rates of illegitimacy. This has been true for a number of decades now in the popular entertainment industry. What is shocking is that this degenerate programming and indoctrination is now an official part of government school and typical university curricula.

White privilege is the same as Asian privilege — or even Igbo privilege. It is the privilege of being born with a higher IQ, with better EF (executive functions), and into a family environment where there are more books, higher levels of conversation, and more care is taken to provide consistently good nutrition for growing children.

If parents can give the gift of intelligence, a good upbringing, and wise habits to their children, they will give them all the privilege they will need in an opportunity society that has not been destroyed by socialism.

Different breeding groups evolved different sets of alleles contributing to overall intelligence. That is why there is such a broad range of average IQs for different breeding populations. Only an opportunity society — not socialism — can create the broad number of economic niches to suit this evolutionary diversity that is innate in the human race.

Is The Long Stability of the US Coming to an End?

The US has been an outlier in terms of long-term constitutional stability among large nations:

… The 91 larger states that existed before 1940 experienced 396 different forms of government or political constitutions between 1800 and 1971, [with] sudden and profound changes. The average lifespan of the political systems was 32 years, but in Europe it was usually only 15-20 years. Of the states that already existed in 1914, only eight did not experience revolution. However, changes in electoral law and other political framework conditions have taken place in all states (Cook 2000, 173)… The more they promise and the faster they adapt to accelerating change, the greater their chances of success over a long period of time.

The revolution will only come when the indebtedness of the state and the public coffers exceeds all measures and no more even halfway credible election promises can be made. In such a crisis it will inevitably come not only to the endangerment of every democratic order, but to the questioning of every state order. __ Weiss 2020 p 115

In the context of this overall instability of major political regimes for over 200 years, the US must be seen as an incredible outlier. Until now. Now, the riots of opportunity being unleashed in Democrat Party strongholds across the US might best be seen as an early warning of the storm to come.

Now, we have the opposition US political party openly planning a forceful coup d’etat, if US President Trump wins re-election in November. Such a power grab would be far from clean, and it is not entirely clear that enough of the deep state would go along with the coup for it to be successful.

Certainly the mainstream media will play its part to see that Trump loses the election. But if the media coalition fails to swing a close election, a desperately crafted backup plan may be set in play — regardless of the ultimate consequences.

The media-backed Democrat Party is running a plainly demented candidate, who no one believes is capable of overseeing the running of a putt-putt golf course — much less the world’s sole superpower nation. It may even be questionable as to what language will be spoken in the oval office, should Zhou Biden be placed in that chair.

There would not likely even be a contest, if not for the way that the governors of New York, New Jersey, and other Democrat Party strongholds botched the response to the Chinese virus SARS CoV-2. But after the botching and the inflation of the death toll, the mainstream media has gone all-out to blame the entire economic, health, and personal life aftermath of state-level lockdowns on Trump — as if Trump somehow had magical powers to force stupid people in government to behave responsibly. Despite the absence of a second-wave surge in deaths, Democrats are still choking the economy to death with lockdowns.

Even without the Soros-CCP-Mainstream Media behind-the-scenes hanky panky, the odds would favor the ongoing march of dysgenics-fueled social democracy. That alone could take the US to the logical conclusion of its entitlement and debt-ridden decline, sooner or later. Rare presidents such as Trump and Reagan have attempted to reset the clock to more rational days, before neo-Marxist post-modernism laid the groundwork for the debt-sapped self-sabotaging welfare state in decline. But the sheer momentum of the corrupt forces of decline within the deep state — and in support of the deep state — seem at most times to be more than ordinary human reason and will can overcome.

This is what the media has come to:

Last Thursday, The Atlantic published a story falsely claiming that President Trump—the same president who has always put our military and veterans first—allegedly disrespected veterans in comments made when he was unable to visit the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018 due to inclement weather. The Atlantic’s editor-in-chief, Jeffrey Goldberg, threw these accusations at President Trump without providing any sources on the record. Mr. Goldberg’s entire backup consists of only anonymous sourcing, thus making it impossible for the reader or other outlets to actually fact-check the story.

However, despite no known sources publicly coming forward and attesting that they provided Mr. Goldberg with this “information,” Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media ran wild with the false tale—very much including former Vice President Joe Biden. Opponents of the president deliberately ignored the fact that as soon as The Atlantic published the article, on-the-record statement after statement from actual firsthand witnesses of the discussions at issue came out to discredit Mr. Goldberg’s claims. __ Source

Publishing an obviously false story may seem like suicide for any publication that wants to be taken seriously. But these are desperate times for the ultra-rich owners of big media outlets, who are paying $millions of their own money to get rid of Trump, and install a more pliable president in his place. Chinese money and influence play an ever greater role in this kabuki theater of politics that is increasingly being crafted in Hollywood studios that are partially owned by Chinese interests.

By any means necessary. That is the watchword for the modern opposition. And they really mean it this time. Or so it seems.

Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst. If you want a future for yourself and your children, by all means try to keep the leftist coalition out of power. Should that precaution fail, look to your personal island of competence — and to potential islands of competence nearby.

The Population Cycle that Drives Human History (Weiss 2020)

Many of the thinkers who have seen through the cause and essence of our global acceleration crisis and suspect its outcome, are convinced that this crisis will lead to a socialist society. This is based on a linear view of history, according to which capitalism will be followed by redemption through socialism and then communism as a paradisiacal final state.

[Admin: But this is more likely:]

“The chaotic states [in the final state of democracy] continue until the brutalized masses have once again found a strong leader. … This is the cycle of constitutions that takes place with natural necessity and through which constitutions change and alternate until the circle is closed and everything is back at the starting point. If you have grasped this clearly, you may be mistaken in time about predicting the future, but hardly about the point in the curve of growth, decline and change that has just been reached― (Polybius 180 B.C.).__ quoted in Weiss 2020
