The first President is next

“Canadians” destroy a statue of their first Prime Minister:

Protesters in Montreal pulled down and defaced a statue of John Macdonald, Canada’s first prime minister, as police stood by, echoing attacks on controversial historical figures in the US. The statue’s head was broken off as it slammed to the ground from its high pedestal on Saturday in Montreal’s Dominion Square. Activists were shielded from view with umbrellas and sheets as they unbolted the statue, which was pulled from behind with a strap around its neck.

Hundreds of protesters had marched to the site to call for defunding the police. They reportedly were organized by the Coalition for BIPOC Liberation, which bills itself as “a collective of social justice groups and community activists led by black and indigenous people.”

Police asked the crowd to disperse on a loudspeaker but didn’t intervene as the statue was destroyed. None of the vandals were arrested.

While law enforcement took a hands-off approach to the toppling, it has drawn condemnation from the city mayor. Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante said that she would rather put controversial monuments “in context” rather than knock statues off their pedestals. She also suggested “adding more monuments that are more representative of the society to which we aspire.”

This is a reminder that there is no place in any civilized society for equality, tolerance, inclusivity, or diversity. Civilization is not compatible with social justice. The Greek cannot, and should not try to, compromise with the barbarian. Nor should he permit the barbarian within the gates.

It is difficult for a regime to last if its constitution is contrary to justice
.- Aristotle, Politics

Social justice is not justice, as the perversion and redefinition of justice, it is contrary to justice. And as Friedrich von Hayek correctly pointed out nearly 50 years ago, and as we have observed of it in recent practice, social justice “can be justified only in those societies in which there is a strict order of preference.”


Death in the diocese

The real Vatican conspiracy is considerably more dreadful than anything concocted by Dan Brown:

Father Walsh was a Crown witness in the case against Adelaide Archbishop Philip Wilson when he met with the pontiff on February 9, 2016. Archbishop Wilson was accused of failing to report to police the allegations of two former altar boys who claimed they had been abused by a priest in the Newcastle-Maitland diocese in the 1970s. At the time he was the highest-ranking Catholic ever to be charged with concealment offences.

Father Walsh later told confidants that the Pope asked him why he was involved in a court case against an archbishop, what he was planning to say in court, and who was walking with him on the journey. Father Walsh said he did not trust the interpreter and offered scant detail.

It was the pinnacle of what Father Walsh perceived as a sustained campaign by the priesthood to get him to toe the line on child sexual abuse. He was allegedly frozen out of the Maitland-Newcastle diocese after he defied the bishop to report a fellow priest for child sexual abuse in 2004 and was not welcomed back until early 2017.

But on October 24, 2017 – a little over two weeks before the archbishop’s trial was set down – Newcastle-Maitland Bishop Bill Wright told Father Walsh he had no future in the diocese, according to an email Father Walsh sent to a friend. The email didn’t say that this decision was because of his giving evidence.

“[Bishop Wright] will look overseas (Third World) where I can live out my days in the service to Christ and his poor, preferably as a contemplative to a leper colony,” Father Walsh wrote.

Two weeks later, before he could give evidence, Father Walsh took his own life.

It’s not the involvement of Fake Pope Francine that caught my attention here, but rather, the fact that a staunch Catholic’s faith was so demolished by his direct contact with the Roman Catholic hierarchy that he chose to commit what he would have previously believed was a grave sin that would deprive him of the right to a Christian burial.


We can only hope

Left-wing politicians are anticipating martial law:

CNN: Let me ask you, mayor, because some of these images, they’re ugly. I mean, a Starbucks destroyed in the protests, a construction site for a juvenile detention facility set on fire, Seattle police say officers were burned when protesters threw explosive devices at them, and look, a lot of what’s happening here, this is not peaceful. This is just violent and destructive, and the president says he thinks mayors like you are refusing his help and those standby forces because he’s the one offering it. Does he have a point?”

Seattle Mayor: No. Again, the president’s actions clearly have escalated things in Seattle, and across the country. I was just talking to a number of mayors throughout the country who saw a similar thing that — people wanting to act out against the president and his administration coming to the streets. I believe, if you look at what happened yesterday and Sunday, again, it was peaceful. We had a number of peaceful protests. And what we’ve seen is, every time this president promises to sow division, he’s successful at it. And he’s clearly targeted cities run by Democratic mayors. He’s said so himself. He’s using law enforcement as a political tool. I hate to say it, Erin, but I really believe that we are seeing the dry run for martial law. This is a president that is using law enforcement and federal forces for political purposes, and that should be chilling to every American.

The Republic failed. Democracy has failed. Liberalism, in both the proto-SJW and the classical senses, has failed. Conservatism has failed. Socialism has failed. This means that a return to some form of authoritarian government is inevitable, and the only question is precisely what form it will take.

Better the likes of Franco, Duterte, Putin, and Xi than Merkel, Macron, Trudeau, May, and the rest of the Promethean mediocrities. The historical trends are inevitable, but that doesn’t mean one has to suffer Neros and Caligulas when there are Augustuses and Aureliuses available.


At least we have a good idea

How the USA is going to come to an end by 2033:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, from the podium at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda, California, laid out in no uncertain terms what the administration wanted to do and how it planned to go about accomplishing its ambitious aims.

America, the secretary of state said, has effectively ditched five decades of “engagement” policy and is now embracing a policy now out of favor across the American policy establishment: regime change.

Formally, the State Department still “engages” China, Pompeo said, but “simply to demand fairness and reciprocity.” Gone are the days when American diplomats engaged China to support the Communist Party. Too often in the past, U.S. presidents rescued Chinese communism, three times—Nixon in 1972, Bush in 1989, and Clinton in 1999—in particular.

More importantly, Pompeo said there would be a new form of engagement. “We must also engage and empower the Chinese people—a dynamic, freedom-loving people who are completely distinct from the Chinese Communist Party,” he said. “That begins with in-person diplomacy.”

This is a spectacularly disastrous policy and it is coming straight from the neocon imperialists. (I note that on the same page as the linked article, there is featured a cover of an issue of National Interest entitled “The Case for Kissinger”.) After all, “regime change” has worked so well in Southeast Asia for the last sixty years, right? It’s hard to know where to even start criticizing this policy because no part of it makes any sense at all. Pompeo may have produced the single most idiotic speech related to diplomacy and war of which I’ve ever heard.

First, the Chinese people are no more freedom-loving than the Afghans, the Iraqis, or the Vietnamese. Their dynamism is irrelevant, and as suspect as the purported “natural conservatism” of Hispanics. Second, the Chinese government is not the business of the American people. Third, this is an acknowledgement of a new cold war, not between the United States and China as it appears on the surface, but between the Jewish and Chinese nations. Pompeo is speaking for his neocon masters and the USA, its people, and its military, are being utilized as a weapon against China.

Fourth, there is no shortage of in-person diplomacy available with the four million Han who now reside in the United States. If I had to bet on regime change, I’d bet on the larger country successfully invading the smaller one being the party to impose it.

It will be interesting to see if the President stands by these assertions about his administration or if he begins moving to jettison Pompeo as he has previously ejected other neocon puppets working for him. Because while the USA can win a trade war with China, it is likely to lose any other kind of war with it, and given the neocons’ failure to force regime change on Syria and Venezuela, it is very hard to imagine they will be more successful with China.

And fifth, Pompeo said “It’s time for free nations to act.” But Americans are not a free nation.


It’s a little late for that

The empire’s ruling tribe is beginning to discover that while it’s one thing to take the reins of the empire from the people who built it, it’s another thing to run it successfully:

Goldman is well positioned to explain what China is about and what the US and even the world should do. A columnist at the Asia Times and a former senior executive of a Hong Kong investment bank, he has traveled extensively throughout China for two decades and negotiated directly with top Chinese industry leaders. He has also written extensively on Jewish topics for a variety of scholarly and general Jewish publications. His Jewish background has been central to his approach. Goldman argues that to understand China, one has both to look at how it operates today and to examine the long-standing cultural patterns of a proud and distinct 5,000-year-old civilization.

Goldman explains that most Americans are simply wrong about China. The typical analogies whether on the left or the right are way off base. China does not have the aspirations of the Soviet Union; China does not want to militarily conquer the West, nor does it want to integrate in the existing world order. It could care less how others see the world. Nor is the Chinese economy dangerously over-leveraged. China is more stable than ever. Finally, he argues the Thucydides model — that as an emerging power China seeks to challenge the US — is not even relevant.

Instead, Goldman argues that the Chinese are an ancient imperial civilization who expect to rule under a mandate from heaven and have the confidence to do so. Moreover, as in the past, they prefer soft power that gives them maximum control to a military showdown that might bring chaos. For the Chinese, the ends justify the means.

Currently, China is implementing a concerted plan to control key industries and information to ensure world domination. As Goldman shows, it is working: most of the world has adopted the Huawei technology for 5G and Chinese signal encryption will soon eclipse that of the US. Soon the world will be totally reliant on Chinese technology and will knowingly or unknowingly share its data with the Chinese government. No Chinese Edward Snowden is likely to survive to warn us. With such power, China will dictate the terms of trade and interaction. Already the basic outlines of the existing China-US trade deal signal China’s dominance: the US buys Chinese technology and other manufactured goods and China buys meat and other agricultural goods from the US. These are the terms imperial powers dictate to their colonies.

Goldman outlines a plan for the US to maintain its world position. He insists that the US absolutely cannot leave it to the private sector. It must develop a government policy to massively support R&D at the industry and university levels. Measures will require huge investments and an overhaul of the American education system to drastically improve educational levels, and most of all, to quadruple the number of American graduates in the sciences and technology. Without these two steps, we will be under China’s yoke within the decade.

The amusing thing about this is that Spengler – as Goldman was known for years before he went public – was completely wrong about China and its intentions for years. This sudden and very belated concern for the US maintaining its world position is the result of the failure of the post-imperial collapse jump-to-China plan.

As I pointed out several years ago, the judeochristians’ assumption of their intellectual superiority was fundamentally based on their being a low-trust, high-performance group amidst a high-trust, high-performance population. Now that they are running into conflict with their first conflict with a low-trust, high-performance group since the Maccabean wars, they are discovering that they are at a significant disadvantage.

I expect the Judeo-Sinese conflict to go pretty much the same way the Judeo-Roman wars did. And the article raises the obvious question: to precisely whom does the author mean when he writes “we will be under China’s yoke within the decade”?


The fall of the Republic of CHAZ

Having been sufficiently spooked by “protestors” showing up in her neighborhood, the Seattle Mayor has finally decided to send the police into CHAZ:

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan issued a Proclamation of Civil Emergency regarding the East Precinct and Cal Anderson Park area today.  The order declared the gathering in this area as an “unlawful assembly” requiring immediate action from city agencies, including the Seattle Police Department. 

But don’t worry, the Mayor and the Police Chief are still on the side of Palestinian Lives Matter.

Today, Mayor  Jenny  Durkan issued a  48-hour  public safety  emergency  order  to vacate the East Precinct/Cal Anderson area.  Seattle police will be in the area this morning enforcing the  Mayor’s  order.  

This order, and our police response, comes after weeks of violence in and around the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest zone, including four shootings, resulting in multiple injuries and the deaths of two teenagers.  

As I have said, and I will say again, I support peaceful demonstrations. Black Lives Matter, and I too want to help propel this movement toward meaningful change in our community. 

But enough is enough.

The history of the CHAZunards was brief, but glorious. And it was important, too. It showed us exactly what life in the post-USA is going to be like for everyone.


A skinsuit cannot survive

The fact that a Christian American country survived unrest in the past says nothing whatsoever about the ability of a post-Christian, post-American state to do so now:

America has survived unrest before, but that was a different country. It had a white, Christian super-majority and a shared history. It had at least a theoretical chance of working out a modus vivendi with its black minority. The language was English and, most of the time, we played by a set of rules to which everyone—liberal conservative, Democrat or Republican—agreed. Elections were not winner-take-all apocalyptic events. Nominations to the U.S. Supreme Court did not occasion brutal, partisan, ideological war. No longer.

If we bank solely on electoral politics, we will lose, especially as the demographic ring closes. The winners will show no quarter.

Political life as we knew it in America is over. Again, the America we grew up in and loved is dead.

The irony here is that the author quotes Sun Tzu about the importance of knowing one’s enemy, but never once dares to utter the name of that enemy. Which tends to underline why Americans lost their country and why other European nations are now at risk of losing theirs; as long even the most die-hard right-wing conservatives still give lip service to “judeo-christianity” and “civic nationalism”, there is no chance of ever winning any battle.

For Sun Tzu also says:“If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

That being said, while we can, and should, mourn the civilized society that was lost, we should not be surprised that it did not last. It could not last. For as another Chinese sage observed: “The empire, long united, must divide.”


The eventual and inevitable target

It’s not exactly hard to figure out who is ultimately behind the current assault on Western civilization. They dress it up in many different ways, but it all comes down to the same objective in the end.

Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down.

They are a form of white supremacy.

Always have been.

In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went?

EGYPT!

Not Denmark.

Tear them down.

The reasons given are irrelevant. By their fruits, they shall be known.


The Boy Scouts, converged

With the possible exception of NASCAR, I don’t know that I’ve ever seen an organization disembowel itself as rapidly as the Boy Scouts of America:

There is no place for racism – not in Scouting and not in our communities. Racism will not be tolerated.

We condemn the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and all those who are not named but are equally important. We hear the anguish, feel the heartbreak, and join the country’s resolve to do better.

The Boy Scouts of America stands with Black families and the Black community because we believe that Black Lives Matter. This is not a political issue; it is a human rights issue and one we all have a duty to address. That is why, as an organization, we commit to:

  • Introducing a specific diversity and inclusion merit badge that will be required for the rank of Eagle Scout. It will build on components within existing merit badges, including the American Cultures and Citizenship in the Community merit badges, which require Scouts to learn about and engage with other groups and cultures to increase understanding and spur positive action.
  • Reviewing every element of our programs to ensure diversity and inclusion are engrained at every level for participants and volunteers by applying a standard that promotes racial equality and denounces racism, discrimination, inequality and injustice.
  • Requiring diversity and inclusion training for all BSA employees starting July 1 and taking immediate action toward introducing a version for volunteers in the coming months.
  • Conducting a review of property names, events and insignia, in partnership with local councils, to build on and enhance the organization’s nearly 30-year ban on use of the Confederate flag and to ensure that symbols of oppression are not in use today or in the future.

These are our next steps but certainly not our last.

No, the beheading tends to follow the self-evisceration. It’s intriguing to see how the mask has finally come off and tolerance is no longer being sold as a virtue now that the corporate cancer has metastasized. As I have pointed out for years, it is intolerance that is the virtue and tolerance is the Sin of Jeroboam. And given how they define racism, discrimination, inequality, and injustice, it is now eminently clear, by their own confession, that there is no place for SJWs or Black Lives Matter or Antifa in any civilized society.

If you understand that social justice is not justice, it should not be hard to grasp that racial injustice is not injustice. Remember, the adjective modifies the noun. And notice that no comments are permitted in response on the statement on the BSA website.


The Current Year is always Zero

HBO cancels Gone With the Wind as part of the ongoing campaign to erase America:

“Gone with the Wind” was pulled from HBO Max while the long-running TV show “Cops” was outright canceled, a sign that entertainment companies are re-examining the content they offer in the wake of nationwide protests for racial justice and against police brutality.

If you haven’t recognized the Year Zero pattern yet, this is part and parcel with Ben Shapiro’s attempt to redefine Western civilization as “judeochristian”, his tribal predecessors’ successful attempt to redefine the American nation as nothing more than an “idea” that belongs to everyone, the Khmer Rouge’s policy of shooting everyone with eyeglasses, and the Temple of Reason erected by the French revolutionaries.

For the Prometheans, the Current Year is always Zero.
