AH:Q Day 4 update

The Alt-Hero: Q campaign is more or less on track with the original Alt-Hero campaign, which is good. We’ll be announcing a new stretch goal soon, probably for the 75k level, as soon as I work things out with the relevant parties. In the meantime, we’ve updated the content with a new b/w page 4, so be sure to check out the campaign even if you’ve already backed it.

Now that the project has been green-lit, we’ve secured the commitments of the Writer (The Legend Chuck Dixon), the Illustrator (Hélix Haze) and the Colorist (Arklight Studios) whose works were featured in the campaign, and we’re now arranging the artists for the cover art for Issues #1-6. We’ll also be using the same Letterer, who is currently putting the finishing touches on CDA #2 and AH #4.

The truth wins out

Jordanetics is gradually losing its hold on people. More and more people are becoming aware that Jordan Peterson is not only a liar, he is a complete lunatic who should be in a padded cell for his own protection. And all that is required to convince them of this is repeatedly quoting Jordan Peterson’s own words from his own speeches and books at length.

  • I was highly skeptical on your attacks against Peterson for a long while. It took me awhile to come around, but when you’re right you’re right, hat’s off to you.
  • Same here. After his third or fourth Darkstream about Peterson and a few blog posts. I started realizing that he was correct.
  • I was hesitant at first to listen to Vox when he started explaining what was really going on.  I’d started to become invested in Peterson.  But the arguments and examples can’t be ignored.  I will not flinch from unpleasant truths.  Peterson being a leftist shuck and jive artist with emotional problems is one of those truths.
  • Vox you called it from the start. I think you were the first person I heard call out Peterson. I could smell something funny, but couldn’t really tell. But you knew it. And called it.
  • From what Peterson has stated: this is classic SSRI and/or benzodiazapine withdrawal, akethesia, manic psychosis. This buckaroo is having a breakdown, especially if he’s been experimenting with drugs . Bravo Vox for shining light on this fraud with a messiah complex. Someone should section 35 this clown Peterson.
  • JBP is a complete fruitcake.. You’re 100{e1b6c4ee08d0f44a6a5b11eb06b9139d63cfe72acbaefd7257f78696d447c626} right about him. Thanks for opening my eyes on that topic.
  • Damn he really is totally crazy! How are people still not seeing it when he is throwing it right out there?
  •  I thought that it was rambling, incoherent, badly written nonsense. I didn’t know it was chock full of sexual deviancy.
  • The proof Jordan Peterson is crazy is that he is STILL promoting Maps Of Meaning 2 decades after he wrote it.
  • I’m no Christian, but Day’s critiques of Peterson are accurate.
  • J Peterson is a liar and a coward

From the transcript of the Darkstream:

Okay, so now let me let me point this out: if you have a 25-day stretch of terror and impending doom and you cannot sleep for however long it was – it wasn’t 25 days, we know it wasn’t 25 days, unless of course he has actually transcended the Material Plane like L. Ron Hubbard and is now doing his work beyond the limitations of the human body – if that happens from drinking apple cider there is nothing wrong with your body, there is something wrong with your head! You are simply insane, okay?

This guy is an utter and total lunatic, but just so you understand, this is not new. I’ve been telling you that the guy is insane since I read his Maps of Meaning. Now, because I brought your attention to it, a lot of you are now familiar with the whole Jordan Peterson wants to bang his cousin and dreams about cannibalizing her while the world is ending thing. If you notice, apocalyptic doom is a consistent theme with him. All right, so this is also from Maps of Meaning, and buckle your seat belts because some of you, if you’ve read it, then you know where I’m going with this one. Trust me, if you thought the whole cousin thing was bad, just wait. Please keep in mind that I am reading from Jordan Peterson’s Maps of Meaning.

I dreamed I saw my maternal grandmother sitting by the bank of a swimming pool, which was also a river. Her genital region was exposed dimly. It had the appearance of a thick mane of hair. She was stroking herself absentmindedly. She walked over to me with a handful of pubic hair compacted into something resembling a large artist’s paintbrush. She pushed this at my face.  I raised my arm several times to deflect her hand. Finally, unwilling to hurt her or interfere with her any further, I let her have her way. She stroked my face with the brush gently and said, like a child, isn’t it soft?

This guy has serious incest issues. Every time he’s dreaming about his female relatives, it has something to do with sex, and if you put this together with the fact that he was brought in to try to dismiss the idea that there was a official conspiracy to try to conceal some known child molesters in Canada, you know there is something very, very, very hinky going on in the Peterson family.

David Eig
Challenge him to a debate. It won’t turn out well for you Vox.

Darkstream by Vox Day
I hereby challenge Jordan Peterson to a public written debate, to be published simultaneously on my blog and the site of his choosing.

Now all of the Jordanetics cultists who have been repeatedly telling me that I should challenge him to a debate can go and pester Peterson about debating me. I’m confident they’re all going to get right on that. I’m sure they won’t make any excuses for his failure to accept the challenge.

The last chapter

The initial conclusion of Will Caligan’s illustrated story of a supernatural search for justice comes with Gun Ghoul #4.

The Crimson Hood, a psychopath Meta Prime hired by Chicago crime lord Mr. Steele, has proven to be more powerful than the Gun Ghoul and revealed him to be little more than an ordinary man. But the FBI is still on the case, and the agency has a Meta Prime of its own in play. The fourth and final issue of Gun Ghoul: Raising the Dead is packed full of surprising twists and unexpected revelations.

From the reviews of the previous issue:

  • Gun Ghoul 3 kicks it up a notch by introducing a new awesome villain. This issue keeps the action, suspense, and intrigue going. I can’t wait for the 4th issue!
  • Keeps getting better! Suspense is killing me, need to make these issues longer! Very well done story and art, Can’t wait till #4.
  • So by this point in the arc we meet Gun Ghoul’s match, and he is one twisted mother. Definitely shades of Joker and Carnage to this guy. Lots of good action and more is revealed in this issue. I’m just sad that Gun Ghoul is soon ending, I want to see more of him and could see an ongoing series.
  • Crimson Hood steals the show! We are introduced to the meta prime Crimson Hood who is full on psycho with a dark sense of humor. I look forward to how GG will deal with something way more challenging than the various humans he has tangled with.
  • Comic books like bullets on autofire. And it continues to be good fun with a freaky villain introduced.
And there will be a further twist, a very much unexpected one, when the print edition comes out soon. Think back to the green-and-purple days, my friends.

NBC News tried to bury Weinstein story

NBC General Counsel (((Susan Weiner))) threatened Ronan Farrow if he didn’t drop the (((Harvey Weinstein))) story even AFTER he left NBC.

The producer who worked alongside Ronan Farrow at NBC News on his Harvey Weinstein investigation quit in protest earlier this month.

Rich McHugh tendered his resignation on Friday, Aug. 17, a year to the day after the Weinstein story left with Farrow. Since then, Farrow has won a Pulitzer Prize for a series of articles that revealed allegations of sexual harassment and assault—and questions have lingered about why the network gave up on the story that helped launch the #MeToo movement.

NBC News has long insisted the Weinstein exposé wasn’t ready to run on air or online, contrary to Farrow’s claims that it was. Farrow’s story, which ultimately ran in The New Yorker, was part of a series that won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, earned him the prestigious George Polk Award for National Reporting, and garnered near-universal praise from his colleagues.

The Daily Beast has uncovered new details of how the process went awry, including alleged threats from NBC, back-biting inside the network about who was truly responsible, and a previously unreported ultimatum by Weinstein’s attorneys.

According to multiple sources familiar with the matter, NBC News general counsel Susan Weiner made a series of phone calls to Farrow, threatening to smear him if he continued to report on Weinstein.

This cannot possibly be true! We have been repeatedly assured that Harvey Weinstein’s success stems solely stems from his high average 115 IQ! Any suggestion that he is a neurotic pervert who has sexually assaulted women for decades is nothing more than the combination of envy, insecurity, conspiracy theory, and anti-semitism.

And Susan Weiner obviously attempted to defend a man who didn’t even work for her company out of nothing more than her laudable desire to heal the world by defending a true auteur against the scurrilous accusations of an envious, insecure, anti-semitic conspiracy theorist Nazi with blond hair.

The ABCNNBCBS cabal can’t honestly be described as “news”, it’s a fake news propaganda machine designed to cover up the actual news. They are, without question, the enemy of the people.

Doubling down on globalism

Emmanuel Macron has gone the not-British, not-German, and not-Swedish “nations of immigrants” one better and is openly denying the existence of the French and Danish people.

France has a “deep and complex identity, which has always been thought of as universalism”, the former investment banker said, before stating he believes he has succeeded in provoking “cultural change” in the native since his election last year.

“People are changing their minds, they are much more open to risk,” he told the event, which was broadcast on Danish television.

“You will see France transformed by its people.”

Asked by a Danish student about the future of national identities in Europe, Macron said that “the ‘true Dane’ does not exist — he is a European”.

“Even your language is not just Danish — it is European. The same is true for the French”, he added.

To say that these people are unfit for national leadership doesn’t even begin to describe their despicable treachery. They are literally seeking to eliminate their own nations.

Shut up, Wesley, they explained

Wil Wheaton finds himself banned from Mastadon. Whatever that is. Apparently for insufficient diversity:

Wil Wheaton isn’t here. @wilw@mastodon.cloud
I have been notified by an Admin here that they are getting 60 reports a day about my account. As far as I can tell, I’m not breaking any rules, and I’ve done my best to be a good person here. But this admin is going to suspend my account. It’s the Admin’s instance, so I fully support their choice to eliminate a source of frustration, but something to consider: a person who is doing nothing wrong can be run off one instance by a mob from another instance. That seems … not cool.

Wil Wheaton isn’t here. @wilw@mastodon.cloud
But it’s been made very, very clear to me that I am not welcome in the Fediverse, and I hear you. I hoped to find an alternative to the birdsite where I could find the same fun community that existed over there in the beginning, and it’s clear to me that I won’t be finding that. Before I leave, I want to just make something very clear, because I’ve spent most of my life being yelled at by people who don’t know me at all, and I want the record to be clear.

Wil Wheaton isn’t here. @wilw@mastodon.cloud
During GamerGate, I was dogpiled and mobbed and brigaded and attacked by thousands of accounts. I started using a blocklist that was supposed to help stop that. I did not know that the blocklist I signed up for also had a lot of trans women on it. When I found out, I did everything I could to remove those women from the list I shared. When there were still innocents on the list, I stopped sharing the list entirely. Despite this, a mob has decided that I’m anti-trans.

Wil Wheaton isn’t here. @wilw@mastodon.cloud
This lie that I am anti-trans, or anti-LGBQ, is deeply hurtful to me (I know it’s nothing like the pain LGBTQ people deal with every day, as they simply try to *exist* in a world that treats them so badly, but it is still hurtful in its own way to me). I just want to make it extremely clear: that is a lie, and the people spreading it are misinformed. So I’m leaving the Fediverse, which has treated me with more cruelty, vitriol, hatred, and contempt than than anyone on the birdsite ever did.

Wil Wheaton isn’t here. @wilw@mastodon.cloud
I know that I’m well-off, well-known, and as a CIS white hetro dude in America, I live life on the lowest difficulty setting. I know that I have very little to complain about.  But I still have feelings, and I really do care about the world and the people in it. What I see is a lot of anger and cruelty directed at the IDEA of me, from people who I just hope don’t realize that it really does hurt me, in my heart, to be accused of being someone I am not,  and to be the target of a hateful mob.

Wil Wheaton isn’t here. @wilw@mastodon.cloud
Anyway, take your victory lap and collect your prizes. You’ve made it clear that I’m not welcome here, and even though I disagree with the action this Admin is taking (banning me when I didn’t break any rules doesn’t seem right), I respect and support the Admin’s decision to run their instance the way they see fit. Please do your very best to be kind to each other. The world is a terrible place right now, and that’s largely because it is what we make it. Bye.

Oh, the irony. “Wil ditched Twitter because they wouldn’t ban Alex Jones.” This is a microcosm of what is happening in the Democratic Party right now. It doesn’t matter how they abase themselves. It doesn’t matter if they pledge their lives and fortunes. It doesn’t matter if they are genuinely true believers. They are not Diversity and there is no place for them either any more than there is for those they called “Nazis” and “Neo-Nazis” and “white supremacists”.

Which, of course, is why the Alt-Right is inevitable.

The best part is that this happened because Wil Wheaton used Randi Harper’s anti-GamerGate blocklist.

Darkstream: concern trolls

From the transcript of the Darkstream:

What I realized is that the problem with the concern troll, and the reason that concern trolling should not be tolerated even among those who are friendly, even among people who are on your side, is that a concern troll is always perfectly happy to trade someone else’s demoralization for his own narcissistic rush. He’s putting his own narcissism ahead of the way that other people feel, it’s actually a very,  very negative trait and it’s kind of related to the pessimists who invariably predict failure and really seem to get off on explaining why nothing’s going to change, why no one’s ever going to win, why no matter what you do it’s going to fail or it’s not going to make any difference anyway.

This is something that I no longer permit on the blog, in fact, I learned to stop permitting it during the  2016 campaign, and I think the Lord Humungus is correct when he said they’re emotionally hedging. But here’s the problem. There’s nothing wrong with emotionally hedging on your own behalf,  there’s nothing wrong with protecting your own feelings because you have been disappointed before, but where it starts to become a problem, where it starts to become a negative action, is when in the interests of your own emotional hedging you actually attack the optimism and the hope of your own allies. I mean, think about it. Suppose that leading up to D-Day, Montgomery and other generals kept telling Eisenhower “oh you know this landing, it’s never gonna work, you know, look what look what happened at Anzio, look what happened when the Germans attacked Crete, it’s all gonna be a disaster, we shouldn’t do this.”

Now what good, from the Allied perspective, is going to come of that? These people don’t actually know what’s going to happen. If we listened to all of the pessimists who were talking about Trump, he never would have won, he never would have pulled off the victory, and he probably wouldn’t have even won the Republican nomination. It wasn’t just people who were against Trump who were making these predictions, it was people who said, “oh yeah, well, you know, Trump’s the only one who could possibly be any good,  but he can never win, he can never beat 30 percent, he can’t beat 35 percent, he can’t win the nomination, he can’t win the general election.

What I would suggest you do if you’re tempted to concern troll, if you’re tempted to share your pessimism, or your lack of hope, or your despair or whatever, don’t share it. Keep it to yourself. I can’t tell you how many times concern trolls have told me stuff that they’ve been completely wrong about. I mean, these concern trolls who say this stuff so they can say “I told you so,” well, they’ve been wrong far more often than they’re right.

The actions speak volumes

The response of the Vatican leaves no doubt whatsoever that the Fake Pope is guilty of the charges that have been laid by Archbishop Viganò.

Though the Vatican may be trying to ignore the tempest generated by explosive allegations from a former papal ambassador that Pope Francis knew about misconduct allegations against ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick and ignored them, that didn’t stop reverberations being felt in Rome on Wednesday.

True to his pledge in an in-flight press conference Sunday night to not “say a word” about the charges, Pope Francis during his regular Wednesday general audience didn’t allude to the McCarrick charge. He did recall his weekend trip to Ireland, which featured an apology for the “sins, scandal and sense of betrayal” of the clerical abuse scandals, said that his meeting with survivors left a “deep impression,” and called for “honesty and courage” in facing the situation.

Yet despite the Vatican’s apparent strategy of riding out the storm, there were at least four aftershocks from the earthquake triggered on Sunday, when an 11-page letter from Italian Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò was released claiming he informed Francis in June 2013 that McCarrick had “corrupted generations of seminarians,” that the Vatican’s Congregation for Bishops has a thick dossier on the ex-cardinal, and that Pope emeritus Benedict XVI had imposed restrictions as a result.

  • Vatican spokesmen were compelled to issue a public denial after Italian news agencies moved a story claiming close aides to the pope described him as “embittered” about the Viganò affair.
  • Two American archbishops on Tuesday and Wednesday became the latest prelates in the country to endorse Viganò’s credibility.
  • Viganò himself gave an interview to one of the journalists who originally broke the story of his letter, among other things rejecting suggestions that he’s lashing out at Francis now out of sour grapes.
  • At the end of Francis’s General Audience on Wednesday, a group in St. Peter’s Square could be heard chanting, and many observers thought they heard “Viganò!” A priest in the square later said it was actually a pilgrimage group chanting the name of their local bishop, but the fact people immediately thought of Viganò illustrates how much his name is in the air.

Late on Tuesday, the Italian news agency Ansa carried a story citing “close collaborators” of Francis describing the pontiff as embittered by the Viganò affair. On Wednesday, Avvenire, the official newspaper of the Italian bishops’ conference, published a story citing “authoritative Vatican sources” to the effect that the claim the pope is embittered “isn’t news,” it’s a “scheme” and a “vulgarity.”

It might seem amusing that the incompetents handling the Vatican PR appear to believe that having the Fake Pope refuse to say a word about charges this explosive, then lashing out about “schemes” and “vulgarity” on his behalf is going to help their cause at all. But then, consider how much worse they must know the actual situation to be if they don’t dare to even deny the accusations, let alone give them a fair and public hearing.

And so it begins

The decline of the United States Marine Corps is already in full effect:

The Basic School for Marine Officers is reeling from a cheating scandal that involved six second lieutenants accused of wrongfully obtaining and sharing key grid points for the night land navigation course.

The officers were accused of sharing the grid points via text messages ­before the test and later relying on them to find hidden boxes stashed across the wooded night land ­navigation course in Quantico, Virginia, ­according to interviews with Marine Corps officials and a copy of the command investigation obtained by Marine Corps Times.

The Marine Corps considers that cheating because the students were able to complete the course without demonstrating the key skills the course aims to evaluate: conducting proper land navigation.

One guess as to why.

One of the other alleged cheaters, a female second lieutenant, with the assumed name Lt. Delta, confided in the other student she “could pass Final Night Land Navigation by plotting the boxes beforehand,” according to the command investigation. The female lieutenant spoke to Marine Corps Times on condition of anonymity.

But surely these fine Marine officers will take full responsibility for their actions and resign their commissions, right?

One of the two female officers ensnared in the ­cheating scandal, Lt. Delta, accused other TBS officers of gender discrimination during the investigation…. Before the entire land navigation situation ­happened, Lt. Delta had filed a restricted sexual ­assault allegation, in November 2017. She was ­assigned a uniformed victims advocate, another Marine who is trained and assigned to provide support to sexual assault victims. 

Of course she did. But not to worry. Since we are told that diversity makes everything stronger, I have no doubt that its manifold blessings will more than make up for officers who lack integrity, won’t take responsibility, and can’t read a map.
