Notre Dame is burning

An apt metaphor for the current state of the West: Notre Dame is on fire.

More bad news. Another Christian treasure, science fiction grandmaster Gene Wolfe, has died.

Gene Wolfe, author of more than 30 books including classics like The Book of The New Sun, has died at the age of 87.

I spoke with him once. He was friendly, polite, and vastly amused by the idea that we were publishing a book of literary analysis of everything he ever wrote. He asked who the author was, and when I told him, he said, “But I know him! He never struck me as a madman!”

Requiescat in pace.


A rugby star stands strong

Can you say that you would be able to face the end of your career with similar equanimity or would you cuck and submit to the devils?

Australian rugby star Israel Folau is facing a ban from the national side after claiming that gay people would go to hell.  The 30-year-old full-back, who is Australia’s best-paid rugby player, posted on Instagram last week to say that ‘hell awaits’ for ‘drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, idolators’.

Rugby chiefs have said the homophobic comments ‘warrant termination of his employment contract’, which is believed to be worth around £1.1million a year.  But Folau has refused to back down, saying it was up to God whether he would carry on playing and insisting he would rather face the end of his career than retract his comments.

The row has also engulfed England’s Billy Vunipola, who ‘liked’ the post on Instagram and later defended the Australian player, remarking that ‘man was made for woman to procreate’.

When asked if the fallout has made him reconsider his comments, Folau, a devout Christian, replied: ‘Absolutely not. I’ll stand on what the Bible says. I share it with love. I can see the other side of the coin where people’s reactions are the total opposite to how I’m sharing it. First and foremost, I live for God now. Whatever He wants me to do, I believe His plans for me are better than whatever I can think. If that’s not to continue on playing, so be it. In saying that, obviously I love playing footy and if it goes down that path I’ll definitely miss it. But my faith in Jesus Christ is what comes first.’

This is why Christians should never have permitted the godless to push the dishonest concept of “freedom of speech”. The whole point of creating that nonexistent freedom was to eradicate the Christian blasphemy laws in force throughout the West in order to replace them with the Satanic equivalent.


Obama’s White House counsel indicted

This unexpected indictment appears to suggest things may get very interesting very soon in Washington DC:

Greg Craig, former White House counsel for former President Barack Obama, pleaded not guilty in federal court on Friday to charges of making false and misleading statements to federal prosecutors related to his work on behalf of Russian-backed former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.

A status hearing for his case has been set for April 15 before U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson in the District of Columbia.

Craig, in an indictment a day earlier, was accused of making false and misleading statements to investigators including those on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team. Craig is the first prominent Democrat to be indicted in a case that stemmed from Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

Mueller referred the Craig case to prosecutors in New York last year, after uncovering alleged misconduct while investigating former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s unregistered lobbying work on behalf of Ukraine.

Drawandstrike suggests that this is just the first thread of an unravelling sweater:

What you are seeing this week was planned and readied for a long, long time by people who know exactly what they are doing.

All the way back when Paul Manafort’s indictment was first unsealed, I saw this coming. While all the attention of the Trump/Russia kool-aid drinkers was almost totally fixated on Manafort/Gates, I took a really long look at Tony Podesta’s reaction to that indictment being unsealed.

Nobody was supposed to notice that people who had *no connection whatsoever* with the Trump campaign or administration were getting indicted by the Mueller team for illegal lobbying.

The *very first conviction* the Mueller team had, Van Der Zwaan = illegal lobbying.
With that in mind, I watched how Tony Podesta reacted to the unsealing of Manafort’s indictment.

Podesta

1) immediately dissolved his highly successful lobbying firm
2) went to ground and has made himself extremely hard to find

Podesta may have been the first guy to actually realize where all of this was going.

I’ve long wondered why Podesta disappeared his lobbying firm, but I never connected it to the Manafort indictment. Here is hoping the long-awaited Storm is finally upon us.


Immigration and demand

Some researchers have managed to provide supporting evidence for the basic economic principle that increasing demand in excess of supply increases price.

19.21: immigrants as a share of population
17.71: 10-year percentage increase in housing prices

Keep in mind that these numbers are lower than they should be due to being artificially suppressed by the statistical artifacts of two debt-based housing crashes, as the researchers show both US and Spain showing a reverse correlation thanks to the big real estate crashes in 2008 and whenever the Spanish one took place.

Anyhow, the point is that the reason there are housing crises everywhere from Australia to the United Kingdom is immigration. It’s just one more piece of evidence that mass migration is catastrophic for a national economy.


The return of the Tiger

I have to admit, I really did not see this astonishing comeback coming:

Tiger Woods has won the 83rd Masters tournament in an astonishing comeback after 14 years since he last secured a green jacket.

Woods, 43, was tied for second going into the final round on Sunday at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, but pulled into the lead on the back nine and won as his family looked on.

It is the first time Woods has won a major when he did not have a lead or co-lead after 54 holes, his first win at The Masters since 2005, and his first majors title in 11 years.

On the 18th green, the patrons went wild and began chanting ‘Tiger, Tiger’ as Woods sunk his final putt to win the tournament, completing a dizzying final round and one of the biggest fairytale comebacks in sports history.

I genuinely thought he was done. But if he was going to do it anywhere, he was inevitably going to do it at Augusta.


Nations rising: Finland edition

A Finn describes the current situation in light of today’s national elections:

99 percent of the votes are counted and we pretty much know what the result of our election is. It’s the best result one could realistically have hoped for, but it’s not going to save the country. However, it still keeps us in the game, for reasons that need a little bit of unpacking.

Now, just the result: Social Democratic Party, which is your basic vanilla socialist party – like Democrats in USA – came first. Finns Party, lacking one seat behind SDP, came second. The rest don’t really matter.

Everyone will ally against Finns Party, and keep them out of government. This is absolutely guaranteed. It’s the only thing all parties agree on. However, there was a time when the Finns Party had essentially gone so far down in polls that they were just on the brink of being considered a minor party. Now they are pretty much exactly back to their high point.

But there is something very important: Between the last two elections there was a cuck rebellion in Finns Party. They conspired with each other, formed a new party (Let’s call it Cuck Party) and were able to keep their senate positions, while the rest of Finns Party that was now being led by the most hardcore nationalist politician in the country. He’s been convicted in court on several counts of hate speech against Islam. Incidentally, he (Jussi Halla-Aho) just received the highest number of votes of any individual candidate in the election.

The Cuck Party received zero seats. ZERO. And Halla-Aho has already stated a year ago that he will not accept any of them back in Finns Party, in any role. So, what this means is that cucks are successfully purged from the party, and since they achieved their original popularity, they are in an immensely better position with all the cucks gone, than they were at the time with the cucks ready to stab them in the back at the first opportunity.

One more election cycle is required in Finland. Let this be a lesson to nationalists everywhere: purge your cucks! They will betray you.


Psychopaths without the laugh track

Owen Benjamin points out that the four characters of Seinfeld are genuinely worse, from a moral perspective, than any inner-city gang banger or motorcycle gang.

Okay, this is a preyed-upon woman, but the laugh track, that makes this scene normal and everyday. That if a woman is in this scenario, that somehow it’s funny. In reality, if you read The Gift of Fear by Gavin Becker, this man will inevitably murder this woman. They always, always, escalate. And there is no one to protect her! Law enforcement, even though there’s a bunch of good cops, there’s not really a way of enforcing the situation if he just takes down the pictures and denies it. This woman without family is absolutely uvulnerable. And that’s what causes her pathology, to make sure that the Soup Nazi lost everything because he wouldn’t capitulate to her self-hatred.

Why wouldn’t she be creeped out, someone asked? Because the modern women is trained not to listen to her instincts. If a Muslim, dressed like a homeless person and staring at you, gets on your elevator, your gut that says “get off” you immediately say “no, you’re being bigoted and Islamophobic, and so you get raped and killed.

When your instincts say, “don’t murder your unborn child,” and then all the media, all your social cues say, “no, that’s the Patriarchy telling you that,” you go on that road long enough, you don’t have instincts, you’re literally a docile cow for the slaughter. You’re domesticated beef!

The self-entitled whore is the product of a society that doesn’t have strong men to lead them into a safe and productive life.


The Hillsdale betrayal

Dissident Mama warns about the fake Hamiltonian history being taught for free by Hillsdale’s so-called conservatives:

So, smart moms in two homeschool social-media groups of which I’m a member are super-excited about Hillsdale College’s free “Constitution 101” course. “Hillsdale’s conservative, so it must be teaching Christian-centered history,” they say.

“Hillsdale doesn’t accept grants from the federal government or participate in federal financial-aid or student-loan programs. How principled,” they opine. “Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levine both endorse Hillsdale as being an ‘authority on the Constitution’, so it must be quality curriculum,” they hope.

Hey now, not so fast. Let’s not take all these assumptions on face value.

For years, I’ve been receiving and reading Hillsdale’s monthly mailed newsletter Imprimus, which highlights guest lectures, speeches by visiting professors, and articles by intellectuals associated with the college. It sometimes features valuable articles by modern thinkers I respect and offer up opinions that are not status quo. But not always.

In fact, Hillsdale as a place of learning is overall a neocon institution. Sure, there are exceptions to the rule, like history professor Brad Birzer, and his wife and history lecturer Dedra Birzer.

Much has been written and discussed about neoconservatism. In short, they were ex-Trotskyites who abandoned the left decades ago, and they and their descendants have been pushing for foreign interventionism, open borders, and giving up on the culture war, all while claiming to be for “Founding principles.” These wolves in sheep’s clothing pretend to be patriotic, yet undergird the very ideologies that are tearing America apart.

“… With the modern displacement by the Neocons of the traditional (and Southern) conservatives and their opposition to the growth in government and to the destruction of those bonds and traditions that characterized the country for centuries, the results we observe around us do not augur well for the future.”

— Dr. Boyd D. Cathey

Larry P. Arnn, who delivers the first video lecture, is president of Hillsdale and also on the Board of Trustees of the Heritage Foundation – a neocon think-tank that alleges to advocate for limited government and fiscal responsibility, but simultaneously lobbies for foreign entanglements and “spreading democracy” through bombing campaigns. In other words: globalism a la the military-industrial complex while America burns.

This isn’t guilt by association. Rather, it’s just connecting the dots. So, is it any wonder that I’m skeptical of this free Constitution course? Therefore, I signed up to see what all the fuss is about.

One need look no further than the welcome email. The “about” section describes how the course will dive into “the Declaration of Independence and The Federalist Papers,” yet no mention of The Anti-Federalist Papers.

So, already we know that the curriculum is slanted toward the Hamiltonian view of America, and not the decentralized view of Founders like Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, George Mason, Sam Adams, Richard Henry Lee, and James Monroe. Thus, Hillsdale is planting their flag on the hill of empire, not that of states’ rights. THIS is a problem, my friends.

Now you know why the subtitle of Cuckservative is “how conservatives betrayed America”.


From neoliberalism to nationalism

The Russians and the Chinese both understand that in keeping with the demographic and economic decline of the USA, the neoliberal world order is failing:

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov declared today that the Western, liberal model of society is dying, and a new world order is taking its place. Lavrov made the comments at his annual meeting with students and professors at the Foreign Ministry’s Diplomatic Academy, reported Russian state news agency TASS.

“The Western liberal model of development, which particularly stipulates a partial loss of national sovereignty – this is what our Western colleagues aimed at when they invented what they called globalization – is losing its attractiveness and is no more viewed as a perfect model for all. Moreover, many people in the very western countries are skeptical about it,” Lavrov said.

According to him, global development is guided “by processes aimed at boosting multipolarity and what we call a polycentric world order.”

This is why the neoliberals – and the wolves in sheep’s clothing called the neoconservatives – are so terrified of nationalism and nationalists. Multipolarity is just another word for nationalism and “a polycentric world order” is synonymous with “a balance of power.”


The battle for France continues

Yellow vest demonstrators have again clashed with riot police in the French city of Toulouse as President Emmanuel Macron prepared a series of policy announcements aimed at quelling 22 consecutive weekends of anti-government protests.

The southern city resembled a war zone today as police fired teargas and arrested several people after hundreds of demonstrators started throwing objects, burning rubbish bins and trying to enter areas where protests have been banned.

Around 2,000 protesters had gathered on the Allee Jean Jaures – a wide avenue in the city centre – and on nearby side streets.
