The science of Q

It will not be Gowdy.

That’s not even remotely opaque. Now, it will obviously not prove that Q is reliable if the Supreme Court nomination turns out to be someone other than Trey Gowdy. But if the hypothesis is falsified, that will demonstrate Q’s fallibility.

US out of Germany

This would be most excellent news indeed. Having noticed that WWII is over and the Soviet Union is no more, the God-Emperor is talking about shutting down the US bases in Germany and bringing the troops home.

Donald Trump is considering scaling down or withdrawing the US military from Germany, according to a report ahead of the NATO leaders’ meeting. The US president has blasted allies for chipping in too little to the bloc’s budget.

The decision to explore the option of pulling 35,000 US troops out of Germany came after Trump floated the idea during a meeting with White House and military aides, the Washington Post reported on Friday, citing government officials who spoke on condition of anonymity. The president was reportedly frustrated by the fact that Germany and other NATO allies don’t pay their “fair share” into the budget of the alliance.

Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump
 ….Germany pays 1{0ce1a054466f479f1fb0ac20b94979d66b3386d5b658fff7ef3ba76c38796cd5} (slowly) of GDP towards NATO, while we pay 4{0ce1a054466f479f1fb0ac20b94979d66b3386d5b658fff7ef3ba76c38796cd5} of a MUCH larger GDP. Does anybody believe that makes sense? We protect Europe (which is good) at great financial loss, and then get unfairly clobbered on Trade. Change is coming!

Except the US obviously is not protecting Europe from anyone. All those expensive troops on location didn’t help Germany avoid invasion by 1.6 million migrants, so obviously there is no reason for them to be there anymore.

Review: Quantum Mortis Issue #2

Bounding Into Comics reviews QUANTUM MORTIS A Man Disrupted #2: Zero Zero Tango:

The second issue of Quantum Mortis picks up where the first issue leaves off and finds our heroes continuing their investigation of the murder of Arpad Vladislaus Jagaelleon (that’s his real name). Tower and Hildreth get more to do here and we are introduced to a plethora of colorful characters, which is a nice change of pace from issue #1. Characters are better fleshed out and the mystery continues to build in intrigue in a follow-up issue that while still isn’t a perfect five-star hit, manages to improve on its predecessor in every way.

Things start out oddly contemplative. Tower enjoys a nice, long conversation with his augmented reality implant, Baby, about the nature of life and death. They bring up some deep questions and even mention being “saved by the Blood of the Lamb” which is a distinctly Christian phrase that I’m not used to hearing outside of my church walls. It’s not a Christian book by any means, but it’s nice to see something like Christianity mentioned in a comic book and it not being used as a joke or demonizing it, as seems to be the popular route to take these days.

It’s great to see that they liked this one even better than the first one! Read the whole thing there. In other Arkhaven news, we have signed an agreement with a movie producer, about which more anon, and we will have an announcement about a major new comic campaign that we will be supporting soon.

And just because I have been asked this several times, we will not be doing another Alt-Hero comics campaign until we have published at least six issues of Alt-Hero, six issues of Chuck Dixon’s Avalon, and sent two omnibuses out to backers. There is no point in building up more of a production backlog, especially when we have barely begun to assemble our sales infrastructure, about which we will have a significant announcement next week.

UPDATE: I am very pleased to be able to announce that QUANTUM MORTIS A Man Disrupted #2: Zero Zero Tango is now in print and is already available at the Castalia Books Direct store for $2.99. It should be available on Amazon by the end of next week. This is the gold logo edition, which is being produced in a limited quantity of 2,500.

World Cup: Round of 16

France vs Argentina is approaching the half. Ugly, stupid late challenge and an obvious penalty vs a beautiful, flawless shot from well outside the box. 1-1 and it could easily go either way.

UPDATE: France won a very entertaining game 4-3. Next up is Portugal-Uruguay, and it’s hard to imagine Uruguay stopping Cristiano Ronaldo and his 10 merry men.

Don’t listen to your patients, Doctor!

California disciplines a doctor for doing what doctors are supposed to do:

In a decision that could signal how California’s fierce vaccine debates will play out in the coming years, the Medical Board of California has ordered 35 months’ probation for Dr. Bob Sears, an Orange County pediatrician well-known for being sympathetic to parents opposed to vaccines.

In 2016, the board threatened to revoke Sears’ medical license for wrongly writing a doctor’s note for a 2-year-old boy that exempted him from all childhood vaccinations. This week, the medical board settled on a lesser punishment.

Sears can keep practicing medicine but will be required to take 40 hours of medical education courses a year, as well as an ethics class, and also be monitored by a fellow doctor. He also must notify all hospital and medical facilities where he practices of the order and is not allowed to supervise physician assistants or nurse practicioners.

Sears found himself in hot water because, according to the medical board, he wrote a vaccine exemption for a young boy without obtaining even basic medical information, such as the child’s history of vaccines. He took the boy’s mother at her word when she said her son lost urinary function and went limp in response to previous immunizations, according to the filing.

They’re going to have to revoke every medical license in California if listening to a patient and taking them at their word is no longer considered proper medical practice. Especially since if a restaurant simply ignored a mother telling a waiter about her child’s nut allergy, they’d probably prosecute the owners.

Run, Kamala, run!

CDAN dabbles in national politics:

It is well known that this female politician who is being talked about as a possible future president started her career by having a relationship with a married senior politician in her state.  For this, she was appointed to a number of part-time boards with hefty salaries.  What isn’t so well known is the senior politician she had an affair with used to take her to swinger parties which were basically glorified orgies where she would engage in sex with large numbers of men and women. What not even she knows is there are compromising pictures of her at these orgies which is why senior leaders from her party are quietly trying to discourage her presidential ambitions and the leader of the other party, the current president, is very excited about running against her, her being her party’s nominee. 

From Wikipedia:

In 1993, Harris started dating California Speaker of the Assembly, Willie Brown, who introduced her to many powerful individuals in the California and Sacramento political and campaign management establishment. She was highly active in Brown’s 1995 campaign for Mayor of San Francisco and introduced publicly as Brown’s girlfriend, even though Brown was married. 

What a pity. The God-Emperor would have beaten her in a landslide to make Reagan-Mondale look like a squeaker. No matter. The Trumpslide cometh.

Mailvox: Blue-collar wakeup call

White Americans are gradually learning that their good intentions don’t mean a damned thing when they interfere with an identity group’s self-interest or objectives.

This isn’t news to you but is interesting for me to watch. I work in a foundry. We have [hundreds of] employees. Around 90 percent are men. All of the older workers, engineers, and upper management are white.

HR says they deal with 27 different first languages. Many employees are Mexican, SE Asian, and Africans (even fewer black Americans). English is sometimes their 3rd language. We used to have more eastern European & Russian but most have moved on.

The department I work in is all male, over 40, and white. A few of them are California and Nevada transplants. One of the transplants recently was called racist, by a dark-skinned Mexican, for not mounting a fan on his forklift as soon as the Mexican complained about being hot to HR. Only the office & lunch room areas, in [very large] facility, are air-conditioned. The Mexican’s old white female manager is backing him on the racist label and escalating the situation. Last fall HR hired two new people. Both are textbook SJWs. Your books have been very helpful in learning what to look out for.

The transplant is a friend of mine. He’s a nice guy to work and hunt with but a cuck in the culture war. Multiple of his biological grandkids are White-Mexican mixed. I talked to him about the southern border invasion a couple of years ago. He got angry over what I said. After a couple of days he realized it was the truth. He lived in California for over 45 years. He saw the changes that happened there. He moved due to the rise in crime.

Unfortunately he hasn’t taken my advice to buy your books and read them. So now he finds himself pissed and confused.  I told him to quickly contact the other places that have recently offered him a job and run out of here. This company is collapsing again. It’s SJW-infiltrated. He won’t win and if he fights it here he could get a racist label stuck on him, which will kill any chance of a decent blue-collar job at any company with an HR department in the area. Especially if they also have any SJW infiltration.

I hope he gets a new job fast and learns his place in the culture war. Especially before it goes hot.

Don’t let this happen to you, your friends, or your family. Read SJWAL and SJWADD instead of learning your lesson the hard way.

The path to dictatorship

Well, we can certainly hope that is what Qanon is laying the groundwork for:

Virtually everyone following politics has heard of the #Qanon story. Religiously followed by a growing mass of disciples and vehemently assaulted by a variety of left wing propagandists ranging from Vice to Newsweek, the validity of its claims have sparked a uniquely passionate debate on both sides.  The ones championing its teaching as unquestionable truth range from imageboard dwelling millennials to a considerable number of boomers.  Be it truly the broadcast of insider intel or merely the flagship conspiracy of our time, it’s certainly an exciting read that provides quality entertainment for the end times.

But those faithfully trusting in Q to lead the overthrow of the evil “deep state cabal” and restore American democracy to the people may be missing a much darker purpose for the Qanon posts.  Used as a highly efficient propaganda tool, Q’s drops may actually be aiding an attempt to dismantle the judiciary altogether.  Should it succeed in pushing this distrust across the public through the oft-cited “Great Awakening, this narrative may actually serve to weaponize Americans into removing the only barrier left to toppling democracy and clearing the way for an Emperor to ascend to the throne. That is, of course, assuming that a coup d’etat has not already taken place.

Forget democracy. Forget that worthless piece of paper that has been defined and redefined out of relevance. The God-Emperor has already promised us a Big Beautiful Wall and Space Marines. Let us hope that in his grand munificence, he will see fit to also grant us Inquisition and Crusade!

Quelle surprise

The shooting at the Capital Gazette had nothing to do with politics, the God-Emperor, or Milo Yiannopoulos. It was the culmination of a nutjob’s seven-year vendetta against the people at the paper who had publicly humiliated him in 2011.

Gunman, 38, who shot five dead in the Capital Gazette newsroom, after he sued the paper and harassed staff over 2011 article that exposed him for Facebook stalking a woman… Ramos was the subject of a 2011 article – titled ‘Jarrod wants to be your friend’ – after he pleaded guilty to criminal harassment. The article described him as having threatened and harassed a former high school classmate on Facebook. He sent the woman numerous emails spanning several months calling her vulgar names and telling her to kill herself.

In the years that followed, Ramos sued the newspaper, the reporter who initially wrote about the case, a judge and the woman who testified against him. His defamation suit was thrown out on appeal in 2015 because Ramos failed to prove that what the newspaper had printed was untrue.

Ramos routinely harassed journalists from the newspaper on Twitter in scores of profanity laced tweets. One of those tweets targeted one of the journalists killed on Thursday, Rob Hiaasen. In another tweet, he discussed how he’d enjoy seeing the paper stop publishing, but ‘it would be nicer’ to see two journalists ‘cease breathing’.

Other tweets from his account referenced previous journalist shootings, including the 2015 terror attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris

The woman who was harassed by Ramos told WBAL TV that she warned an ex-police officer years ago that he would ‘be young next mass shooter’. Adding that he’s a ‘f***ing nut job’, the woman said Ramos because fixated with her for no apparent reason.

That didn’t stop Paypal and Venmo from shutting down Milo’s accounts with them, thereby proving that you shouldn’t EVER talk to the media at all. What has been widely reported as his “call to murder journalists” was nothing more than his standard email response to media requests, sent to two different media outlets that had been harassing him for a comment on an unrelated matter. It wasn’t a public “call” for anything at all. That is a flat-out lie.

Yiannapolous was asked by the Observer and Daily Beast to comment on two unrelated articles published Tuesday, Yiannopoulos – who is known as a provocateur – texted the Observer‘s Davis Richardson “I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight,” while emailing the Beast‘s Will Sommer the same response. When asked to elaborate, Milo told the Observer that his statement was his “standard response to a request for comment,” which he also sent to the Daily Beast‘s Will Sommer, who published it as well.

Notice how the media managed to twist even the refusal of a request for comment into something they could use to damage him. THIS IS WHY YOU DO NOT TALK TO THEM AT ALL! I had already stopped even emailing them back to decline their requests anymore before this happened. Stefan Molyneux had the right policy all along. Never talk to the mainstream news media at all. They are desperate for content and they are desperate for comments. Don’t give them anything.

And no, I don’t want to hear from any of the usual morons who have a fiendishly clever plan that no one has ever thought of before on how the media can totally be trolled and recorded and humiliated, thus proving what smart boys they are.

Hapless heroes, pathetic bad guys

Jagi Lamplighter explains why the degenerate Left can’t create memorable characters anymore, not even interesting villains like the bad guys of yore:

It is not enough to have an evil snow queen or rat king, the good little man who was kind and loving must be warped beyond recognition into something vile, lest the villain be anyone who we might accidentally admire.

The same thing happened in Disney’s Maleficent.

Disney cartoons feature many fine villains, but none stand out for their force and majesty as much as Malificent, the wicked fairy who is so angry that she has been slighted at a christening that she curses the family and tries to kill the child.

Malificent is impressive. She is funny. She curses an innocent child, just because she is miffed. When, sixteen years later, she leanrs that her minions, goblins and gargoyls,  are still looking in cradles for a missing baby– instead of a young lady who has grown up–Malificent utters her eerie, silvery, laugh. Then she blasts them with a lightning bolt from her magic wand and declares: “Oh, they’re hopeless. A disgrace to the forces of evil!”

But Malificent herself is no disgrace. When it comes time to fight the prince she turns into a gigantic dragon and calls up on the most infernal forces of all.

This gives her a majesty that fits with the evil magnificence of her name. She was spectacular in her villainy.

Too spectacular for the Degenerati, apparently.

In the original Sleeping Beauty – in some ways the most beautiful of all the Disney cartoons – the backdrops were done by a well-known painter. ( I used to sell his works when I worked at a gallery.) – Malificent curses king Stephan, a man who is both a kind king and a loving husband and father. His only crime is that he left the evil fairy off his guest list. He is good, and he is innocent. The horror that befalls his nation is appalling, and he is undeserving of this terrible fate.

In the recent movie about a being who happens to have a similar look and name to our magnificent villainess, the main character, Faux-Malificent, is not majestic.  She is weak and innocent. She falls in love with a man, and this dastardly individual betrays her sweet love and cuts off her wings, leaving her bereft, a victim.

How sad. How tragic. What a victim she is. No wonder she grew up to be such a…unpleasant fairy creature.

In the movie, that man is…the future King Stephan.

It is Geppetto all over again. Big-hearted Geppetto cannot be kindly, he has to be an evil mastermind. Good-hearted King Stephan cannot be innocent, he has to be the cad who screwed over the future villainess.

In modern stories, good men become cads and creeps so that the bad people, like Malificent and the Big Bad Wolf, can be misunderstood, pathetic.  What effect do these changes have on the story? They mitigate the wickedness. If the villain is now a victim, then the villainy is now justified.

This is why Arkhaven is eventually going to surpass Marvel and DC. They cannot bear to address either virtue or wickedness.
