Four years later


Four years ago, I published SJWs Always Lie. Mike Cernovich told me at the time that it would be what he called an "evergreen" book. It would appear that he was right, because the social justice Narrative hasn't disappeared in the intervening period. To the contrary, it is now a much bigger problem affecting even more people across a far wider spectrum of activities and organizations than before.

If SJWAL is still on the bestseller list several hundred years from now, will that indicate that we failed or that we succeeded in defending Western civilization? The latter, I suppose, since the alternative is illiterate gay satanists living in filth and literally devouring each other whenever they take a break from molesting stolen animals and kidnapped children. It does amuse me, though, to know that John Scalzi's lasting claim to fame in the long run is much more likely to be his brief appearance in SJWAL than any of the color-by-numbers works of fiction that he presented as his own over the years.

How low can they go?

Just how far back do the haters of Western civilization want to turn back the clock? Even farther back than you think.
Though accusations of cannibalism have often been falsely made to demonize groups, it isn't absent from human history. The Fore people of Papua New Guinea were reported to have participated in funerary cannibalism, believing it better that the body was eaten by people who loved the deceased than by worms and maggots. Parts of mummies were eaten for medicinal purposes in post-Renaissance Europe.

We suspect that we could adapt to human flesh if need be. Many people develop disgust for all kinds of meat, while morticians and surgeons quickly adapt to the initially difficult experience of handling dead bodies. Our ongoing research with butchers in England suggests that they easily adapt to working with animal parts that the average consumer finds quite disgusting.

Thankfully for most of us, there is no need to overcome our repulsion for the foreseeable future.
They reject Jesus Christ, they believe we are animals, and they want us to live like animals. There is literally no depth to which they will not sink, which is why we have to stand firmly against the entire project on behalf of our faith, our families, our nations, and our Christian civilization.

Mark this well: if you are on the side of equality, tolerance, inclusivity, and diversity, then you are on the side of the satanists, the cannibals, and the pedophiles... among others.

Marvel and the Devil Mouse abused Stan Lee

Both converged entities stand condemned by Stan Lee's daughter:
“When my father died, no one from Marvel or Disney reached out to me. From day one, they have commoditized my father’s work and never shown him or his legacy any respect or decency.”

JC concluded with some fiery words aimed at Disney and Marvel, “In the end, no one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney’s executives.”
Of course they treat people badly. Even legends! They worship Satan and they are - at best - in league with pedos and child sex traffickers. What else would you expect?

Philosophy as tactical manual

A book recommendation from ex-Google whistleblower Zach Vorhies:
ZV: I actually want to recommend a book called SJWS ALWAYS LIE by Vox Day. That's the only book that I would recommend that someone would read.

AJ: We do sell it in our store. That's one of the few books I've read the last year, I've been so busy. Yeah, they always lie!

ZV: They always lie, and the thing is is that people that aren't familiar with the tactics, you know, because this is weaponized. They don't understand what's going on and so they're likely to make a bunch of mistakes they think that they just capitulate and like apologize then it's just gonna go away.

AJ: Oh no! A few years ago I'm like well I'm not really saying that about Sandy Hook but if you say I'm hurting you and sending people to your house, I never did that but I apologize, that's when they just full-metal attacked!

ZV: Yeah they double down and the thing is is that they're gonna parade your apology around and say well, you know, he admits to this and that, he's like X, Y, or Z bad person and then they're gonna use that and they're gonna parade it around. And this is not something that people understand intuitively and so the thing is, get this book, SJWS ALWAYS LIE by Vox Day and read it. It's a fascinating read and it goes by really quickly, and it's kind of a funny title but

AJ: The point is stop capitulating, stop kissing their ass.

ZV: Yes, exactly. Exactly.... So I followed this book, basically, as a tactical operation manual on how I was going to leak this information.
That is arguably the best review SJWAL has received yet. I'll be talking with Zach on Alex's show today at 2 PM EST.

Debt jubilee: step one

The God-Emperor sets a few veterans free from the debt-vampires:
President Trump has announced a policy directive to the U.S. Department of Education to immediately facilitate the discharge of federal student loan debt for any veteran permanently disabled as part of their military service.
It's a good start. The non-disabled vets should be next, followed by the unemployed. All student loan debt should be eventually discharged and all student loans should forbidden by state and federal law. They are intrinsically predatory and accomplish nothing except inflating the cost of higher education.

The convergence spreads

No matter what your hobby, the Narrative will infiltrate, infect, and invade it:
The longtime internet knitting community Ravelry updated its content policy this week to ban support of President Donald Trump from the platform. The new policy holds that support for Trump is support for white supremacy, which is not conducive to positive community-building.

Ravelry’s announcement of the policy change, made on Twitter on June 23, was short and to the point, noting, “We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy.”

We are banning support of Donald Trump and his administration on Ravelry. We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy. 

In the full updated policy, Ravelry clarified that its ban on Trumpism “includes support in the form of forum posts, projects, patterns, profiles, and all other content.” The policy also states that the ban does not apply to other forms of conservative content, nor is it intended to target conservative Ravelry users themselves, specifying that “hate groups and intolerance are different from other types of political positions.”

The policy also notes that Ravelry is following the lead of the longtime gaming forum RPG.net, which banned Trump support in October 2018.
Tolerance, Equality, Progress, Inclusivity, and Diversity. Those are the infection vectors of the Narrative. If you support any of those things in any capacity, if you so much as permit any of those things, your organization will be converged.

Flying the Devil's flag

Contra what many people would very much like to believe, Andrew Klavan is not, and has never been, one of the good guys. He is still a dedicated servant of the lie, as his own words testify:
It's really interesting, they had this thing in in Portland over the weekend where antifa, the fascists who call themselves anti-fascist, and the Proud Boys, who seem to have overlooked the democracy problem themselves. We're fighting each other, right, they're out there, they were gonna have demonstrations and counter-demonstrations, and fight. Antifa is an absolutely miserable violent leftist organization and the Proud Boys seem to be instigating violence - in the name of white supremacy.

So Sean Hannity goes on TV, right, and Sean Hannity says a pox on both your houses, a plague on both your houses, this is not the way this,  goes we're one country, even though Sean is a deep, deep, partisan pro-Trump partisan. He is saying the people I argue with, I'm arguing with, right, we're not we're not enemies, we're opponents in this fight. We're not hitting each other over the head with clubs. Here's just a taste of what Sean said, but what matters here is we can have a thorough, complete,  passionate,  open discussion of ideas and ideals. We don't need fists and baseball bats and maces, you know. This show will always condemn hatred on any side, white supremacy, bigotry, you have no place in this society, none whatsoever.
What society is that, exactly? What do you mean by "we", kemosabe. There is no "us". Andrew Klavan's show not only fails to condemn racial supremacy, he openly associates with known racial supremacists like Ben Shapiru and Dennis Prager. And let's face it, we all know he's intelligent enough to know better, which is how we observe that he is himself a liar, a subverter, and among those who seek to destroy both America and the West by transforming them into things they are not and have never been.

Anyone who claims to oppose "identity politics" at this point is either a clueless loser or a liar. I'm willing to cut some slack for the average idiot Boomer who was steeped in civic nationalism for his entire life, but the fact is that it is, and has always, been known to be, a polite fiction, as Belloc observes.

It was the attitude familiar to the nineteenth century, and agreeable to that one of its political moods in which it found itself best satisfied: ... of creating a fiction of single citizenship to replace the reality of dual allegiance; of calling a [foreigner] a full member of whatever society he happened to inhabit during whatever space of time he happened to sojourn there in his wanderings across the earth. That was the attitude agreeable on the political side to everything which called itself "modern thought." Such was the doctrine proposed by the great men of the French Revolution. Such was the attitude accepted almost enthusiastically by Liberal England, that is, by all the dominant public life of England during the Victorian period. Such was the policy which once obtained universal favour throughout the whole of our Western civilization. That was the attitude which the West actually attempted to impose upon Eastern States, and the last effect of its rapidly-declining credit is to be found in certain clauses of the Treaty of Versailles: for that attitude is still the official attitude of all our governments.

It's not  just "the Democrats" who are flying the Devil's flag, Mr. Klavan. And you obviously know damn well who else is flying the flag of their father.

UPDATE: A Klavan fan, who may soon be a former Klavan fan, copied me on an email to him:
You said in episode 752 that the "Proud Boys seem to be instigating violence in the name of white supremacy..". I call you to retract this statement. It is not true. The Proud Boys have members of all colours and do not support white supremacy. I give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you just don't know. If you do not retract this statement, you are a liar. I will not longer be able to trust that you are speaking truth and I will no longer be listening to you.

The tragic cycle

It's really astonishing to read the perspicacity of Hillair Belloc regarding the centuries-old challenge to civilization posed by a single pre-Western tribe to the nations of the West in his landmark book, The Jews. Belloc not only predicted both the Holodomor and the Holocaust, but even observed that the latter would take the form of a violent large-scale reaction to Bolshevism in Russia, 20 years before the Wannsee Conference. Regardless of whether you are a clueless Christian Zionist, a frothing-at-the-mouth anti-semite, a wickedly subversive neoclown, or a proud Sabra, I would highly recommend reading Belloc's book due to the way in which it lays out the repetitive past as very probable prelude.
Now these causes of friction permanently present tend to produce what I have called the tragic cycle: welcome of a Jewish colony, then ill-ease, followed by acute ill-ease, followed by persecution, exile and even massacre. This followed, naturally, by a reaction and the taking up of the process all over again.

In our own time we have seen, quite lately, the succession of the second to the first of these stages; we have passed from welcome to ill-ease. That passage threatens a further passage from the second to the third; from the third to the terrible conclusion.

We feel quite secure to-day from the last extreme of this cycle. We are certain it will never come to persecution: that is still inconceivable. But it is not inconceivable everywhere: and no society is free from change. Some now alive may live to see riots even in this quiet polity and worse in newer or less settled states.

Such a catastrophe is to be avoided by every effort in our power and a solution to the problem presented must imperatively be sought. But in passing we should note, for the consideration of those who may doubt the acuteness of the problem and the immediate practical necessity for a solution, the presence of a phenomenon which amply proves that it is acute and that the solution is necessary....

The real interest in the Jewish revolution in Russia, to which is now permanently affixed the name of Bolshevist (which is nothing more than the Russian for "whole-hogger"), lies in these two points: first, the continued propaganda of Communism throughout the world (which propaganda in organization and direction is in the hands of Jewish agents); secondly, and much more important, the effect of the Jewish revolution in producing hostility to the Jews throughout the world... The other effect of the Jewish revolution in Russia—the peril into which it has put the Jews themselves—is permanent and is of the first magnitude.
Besides Thucycides's famous chapter on civil war, there is no other historical work that reads as if it was written just last week instead of nearly a century ago. It is highly relevant today because the process of the tragic cycle that Belloc describes playing out in the continental European context has observably moved from the first to the second stage in the United States, and from the second to the third stage in the United Kingdom.

The important difference between then and now is that Israel now exists as a state as well as a nation, so for the first time in the history of Western civilization there exists a peaceful and civilized solution that does not involve Jews massacring a nation or a nation massacring Jews. Hazony notwithstanding, that is the real virtue of nationalism, and one which finally renders unnecessary the endless subversions and inversions of the Shapirus and Pragers of the world.

Devil Mouse shenanigans

It's not just the fake box office receipts. The Devil Mouse is playing fast and loose with its park revenues as well:
Marketwatch reports that Sandra Kuba, who was a senior financial analyst in Disney’s revenue-operations department, alleges that employees working in the parks-and-resorts business segment systematically overstated revenue by billions of dollars by exploiting weaknesses in the company’s accounting software.

Kuba, who worked for Disney for 18 years said she has met with officials from the Securities and Exchange Commission on several occasions to discuss the allegations, according to Marketwatch. She said she brought her concerns to the SEC in August 2017 and was fired from Disney about a month later....

Disney’s parks-and-resorts business consists of its amusement parks around the world, including the Disney World resort in Orlando and Disneyland in Anaheim.

MarketWatch said it has reviewed the whistleblower’s filings, which outline several ways employees allegedly boosted revenue, including recording fictitious revenue for complimentary golf rounds or for free guest promotions.

Another alleged act involved recording revenue for $500 gift cards at their face value even when guests paid a discounted rate of $395.

The whistleblower filing alleges that in just one financial year, from 2008 to 2009, Disney’s annual revenue could have been overstated by as much as $6 billion, according to the report.

Since leaving Disney, Kuba has reportedly made two additional whistleblower filings. The most recent tip alleges that some Disney employees reclassified guest revenue from high-sales-tax items such as hotel rooms to lower-taxed items, such as food and beverages, in order to reduce sales tax liabilities in Florida, California, and Hawaii.

Marketwatch said Kuba filed a whistleblower-retaliation complaint with the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration in October 2017. Disney replied that Kuba’s employment was terminated because “she displayed a pattern of workplace complaints against co-workers without a reasonable basis for doing so, in a manner that was inappropriate, disruptive and in bad faith.”

While the SEC receives several thousand tips a year, the vast majority of which amount to nothing, one former SEC attorney said that the government appears to be taking the complaint against Disney seriously. “The fact that the SEC has asked for more information more than once and conducted interviews suggests an inquiry is underway,” Jordan A. Thomas, a former attorney in the SEC’s enforcement division, told Marketwatch.
Disney isn't just an evil, anti-Christian, anti-American organization, it is also a criminal enterprise. As the credit boom evaporates, more than a few Enrons are going to be uncovered and evaporate. Netflix and the Devil Mouse are likely to be two of the corpocracies exposed, although the value of the intellectual property that the latter holds means that it will survive in some fashion, although not necessarily as a singular entity.

Netflix, on the other hand, will simply disappear into the graveyard of forgotten corporatations.

Avanti Salvini

Matteo Salvini makes his long-awaited move:
Crisi di governo, le dimissioni di Conte: "Il governo finisce qui, Salvini ha seguito interessi personali e di partito". 
Goverment crisis, the resignation of Prime Minister Conte: "The government is finished here, Salvini has followed his personal ambitions and the interests of his party.

What's happening here is that the nationalists of La Lega are in a position to take power in the Italian government without their former left-wing allies in the Movimento Cinque Stelle who have been preventing them from dealing conclusively with the migration crisis and the European Union.

So, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who is the most popular man in Italy now due to his forthright nationalism, brought down the government by severing the La Lega-Cinque Stelle alliance with the intention of forcing new elections in October. Rather than try to avoid the elections by putting together a new minority government, Conte elected to resign and end the current government.

The irony, of course, is that Salvini is the one politician who actually cares about the Italian nation. Conte is projecting when he implies that Salvini is only pursuing power for its own sake. And the amusing thing was the way that Salvini responded to Conte's broadside by kissing the crucifix he was holding in his hand.

I'm not entirely certain what he meant by that, but I suspect it was a gesture intended to echo that of many Italian soccer players when they are substituted for a starter. They reach down, touch the grass, cross themselves, then raise the team badge on the chest of their jersey and kiss it. In other words, Salvini was symbolically saying "you're done, Conte. It's my turn now."

Mailvox: team sports and omegas

An omega writes of his experience with team sports and group activities:
You're right about team sports: as an omega teenager, I was lucky enough to play hockey and football/soccer. I endured the bullying, but I didn't know why until I read your post.

I was also in the school's marching band, which was made up of mostly the school's best jocks with tiny number of lesser boys like me. Getting beaten with a mace by the leader or forced to run with your instrument above your head does kill fear and teach coordination through team-work. In no other context could an omega like me work alongside boys this high up the socio-sexual hierarchy. I hated it at the time but your post made me realise how lucky I was.

Unsurprisingly, the initiations were brutal. I was praised for taking it so well when other boys freaked out and sobbed, so respect can be earned, even as an omega. An important lesson.

I punched the aforementioned leader in the face once, but he let it go instead of ordering the band to tunnel me. The rest of the band followed suit and never brought it up again. A few in the band were younger alpha males, and as he was the oldest and the biggest, they obeyed.

I didn't leave and they didn't kick me out. Another important lesson: keep trying hard, and people higher up the socio-sexual rank will admire the effort. They won't give up on you. When I eventually became good at an arbitrary physical activity then even bullies would spread the word. As you said in one DarkStream, being good at something physical is important, even if it's just one small thing.

Thanks to your post, I now see that these experiences are why I relate well to other men - except gammas; they openly despise me - and alpha males instead of hating them. It made it easier to accept my station in life as well as some success with women.
This guy gets it. Accept your place, accept the hazing with equanimity, demonstrate your merit through actions instead of words, prove your loyalty, and you will find yourself rising in every male social hierarchy no matter how low you are on the totem pole at the beginning.

Men genuinely like underdogs, even the ugly ones. But an underdog absolutely has to show that he has fight if other men are going to cheer for him and stand by him.

Diplomats see Trumpslide 2020 coming

Unlike the US media, foreign diplomats won't be fooled again:
Foreign diplomats are still feeling burned after assuming Donald Trump would lose in 2016 — and they don’t want to be fooled again. So many of them are quietly preparing for and predicting a Trump victory in 2020. Some are even trying to game out who will be on the president’s team in a second term. The belief that Trump will win reelection — gleaned from conversations with around 20 foreign diplomats, international officials and analysts who deal with them — appears widespread....

“What I’m saying right now is, I think, shared by many people,” a Middle Eastern diplomat said of the coming presidential election. “It’s his to lose.”
We called it first. Wear it with confidence.

The cancer protects itself

A Reprehensible emails his observation that Twitter is muting the voices of anyone who criticizes the entertainment blackwashing:
After seeing the cast of Wheel of Time I couldn't get my mind off of it so I made a twitter account using a throw away email account. I took a minute to grab some images from the web and put some propaganda/memes together, nothing special, and posted to the showrunners twitter. At first twitter gave me an error when trying to upload an image with the file name “not our Perrin”. Once I changed the name of the file to random numbers it let me post the image with my comment. The comment itself did not bring up race. I was IMMEDIATELY locked out of my account.

I followed the instructions to unlock my account through my email. I then navigated to the casting directors twitter and posted a similar image with a short message. I was once again locked out of my account. This time twitter was asking for my cell phone number to regain access to my account. I have a burner that I can use to get back into the account so I might continue but I'm amazed that they would be watching this so closely.

Also, as an aspiring illustrator/animator I keep seeing all of this twisting and perversion of stories that I would have loved to help get to the screen. Now I can't stomach the idea of working on them. They even "woked" the 'Cowboy Bebop' cast. Do you have any advice on how to keep from getting discouraged by all of this?
It's fascinating that they are clamping down on it so tightly. They must harbor some understanding the level of massive social fury they are inspiring with these blackwashing and gender-bending provocations.

As for getting discouraged, I don't understand that at all. This is a massive strategic blunder by both Hollywood and the Social Thought Police. They are showing their hand to everyone, thereby giving us the opportunity to replace them entirely. Don't be discouraged, be motivated and inspired!

It keeps getting worse

No wonder Epstein and his friends were trying to keep the records sealed:
Jeffrey Epstein once had three 12-year-old girls flown in from France for him to abuse as a sadistic birthday present, unsealed court documents have alleged.

The fresh allegations were made by Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claims she was recruited to be a 'sex slave' by the millionaire financier and his girlfriend Ghislane Maxwell when she was 15 in 1999.

Giuffre made the allegations in a civil suit filed by the Miami US attorney's office in 2015.
Remember, this is the sort of thing that the US government authorities have been trying to keep under wraps. But a lot more of this sort of thing will be coming out soon.

UPDATE: The net is closing in on one of Epstein's friends:
Pressure was mounting on Prince Andrew last night to answer questions about his paedophile friend Jeffrey Epstein.

Young victims of Epstein begged the Duke of York to help them get justice as the prince was offered the opportunity to give sworn testimony on 'everything he knows'. After the duke declared himself 'appalled' at reports of the US financier's sex abuse of teenage girls, he was offered the chance to stand by his word and help their cases.

Lawyers said they looked forward to sitting down with Prince Andrew 'as soon as possible', suggesting that he go on the record about Epstein, whom he once reportedly vowed to 'be loyal' to.

Today it can be revealed that flight logs, obtained by the Daily Mail, show that one of Epstein's victims, 'sex-slave' Virginia Roberts, was flown to London, New York and the Caribbean in 2001. She has claimed that as a 17-year-old she met the duke in all three places and, in each case, research by the Mail suggests the duke was in the same vicinity at the same time.

The value of football

The Duke of Wellington said, ten years after the battle while at Eton: "The battle of Waterloo was won here." Richard Sherman, the outspoken cornerback, has a similar perspective:
I understand that football teaches you values. It teaches you accountability. It teaches you work ethic. It teaches you how to be a teammate. It teaches you how to overcome adversity. How to deal with loss. How to deal with being coachable. All those are skills that translate to the real world. In just about any job, you have to be part of a team. Don’t go into other people’s lanes. Football teaches you those lessons. It teaches you at a young age. It teaches you to overcome fear. It teaches you, ‘Hey, I’m 190 pounds and he’s 305 pounds. I still have to have to have the courage to go in there and mix it up with him.’ Those are lessons I don’t know how to teach otherwise … There’s a chance you’re getting hurt but there’s also a chance that you learn these lessons, you have a great life, you have a career. If you don’t play professionally, if you don’t even play in college, those life lessons that you learn will translate and elevate you in life in general.
Many of these things are true of all team sports, although football is special when it comes to teaching courage due to its intensely physical nature. Those who mock it as "sportsball" are ignorant fools and physical cowards who would never dare to line up in the trenches, either as children or adults, and will be of no utility whatsoever when the shooting starts.

Nuke it again, just to be sure

I despise Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series, so I'm mostly amused by the news that Amazon is blackwashing Perrin and Nynaeve:
Amazon’s upcoming Wheel of Time series will race swap Egwene, Perrin, and Nynaeve.

Wheel of Time showrunner Rafe Judkins confirmed casting announcements for the upcoming Amazon adaptation. They cast Marcus Rutherford as Perrin Aybara, Zoë Robins as Nynaeve, and Madeleine Madden as Egwene Al’Vere. They also cast Josha Stradowski as Rand al’Thor, and Barney Harris as Mat Cauthon.
I am a little disappointed by the casting of Rand al'Thor, however. Josha Stradowski's face isn't anywhere nearly punchable enough.

China threatens financial nuke

I'll have to think through this before reaching any firm conclusions, but I'm dubious that what has been called the Chinese "nuclear option" of selling its T-bills is likely to be a very effective tactic.
If there is any further pushback from the US on any of these Chinese projects in Iran, then Beijing will invoke in full force the ‘nuclear option’ of selling all or a significant part of its US$1.4 trillion holding of US Treasury Bills, with a major chunk of the paper due to be sold in September on this basis. This massive holding of these bonds - through which the US finances its economy and is an important factor both in the value of the dollar and therefore in the health of US international companies especially – has been used as a bargaining chip before by China, especially when it feels threatened. Back in 2007, just before the great financial crisis, a number of senior Chinese figures at various state-run think tanks – through which China often signals its big geopolitical threats – stated that the large-scale selling of this massive Treasury Bill holding would trigger a dollar crash, a huge spike in bond yields, the collapse of the housing market and stock market chaos.

Such a tactic would neatly fit into China’s overall strategy to have the renminbi challenge the US dollar’s status as the key global reserve currency and the prime currency for global energy transactions. “The long-planned sequencing for this was inclusion in the SDR {Special Drawing Rights] mix, which happened in 2016, increasing use as a trading currency, which followed that, use as the key currency of an international energy trading exchange, which has occurred with the creation of the renminbi-denominated Shanghai International Energy Exchange in last year, and the calls from big oil producers and other major trading nations to use the renminbi, which has been happening over the past few years,” the head of a New York-based commodities hedge fund told OilPrice.com. Only recently, Leonid Mikhelson, chief executive officer of Russian oil major, Novatek, said that future sales to China denominated in renminbi is under consideration and that US sanctions accelerate the process of Russia trying to switch away from US dollar-centric oil and gas trading and the damage from potential sanctions that go with it. “This has been discussed for a while with Russia’s largest trading partners such as India and China, and even Arab countries are starting to think about it... If they do create difficulties for our Russian banks then all we have to do is replace dollars,” he said. “The trade war between the US and China will only accelerate the process,” he added.
At first glance, it looks to me the potential US response of simply repudiating its debt and declaring those T-bills to be of no value will be considerably more harmful to China than selling the debt will be to the USA.

Those who are focused on posturing and threats never seem to keep in mind that the enemy always gets a vote.

Pervs and pedos in the UK

The seemingly inexplicable enthusiasm for the late Jimmy Savile on the part of the royals of the UK is beginning to make more sense with the Epstein revelations as well as a recently released FBI dossier on Lord Mountbatten, the viceroy of India:
Agents began compiling the file, which spans more than three decades, in February 1944, shortly after Mountbatten became supreme allied commander of southeast Asia. Following his appointment, the FBI interviewed Elizabeth de la Poer Beresford, Baroness Decies, about another matter, and she brought up Mountbatten, The Sunday Times reports.

The file reads: 'She states that in these circles Lord Louis Mountbatten and his wife are considered persons of extremely low morals. She stated that Lord Louis Mountbatten was known to be a homosexual with a perversion for young boys. In Lady Decies' opinion he is an unfit man to direct any sort of military operations because of this condition. She stated further that his wife Lady Mountbatten was considered equally erratic.'

The royal kept a large group of gay friends, including Noël Coward, Terence Rattigan, Ivor Novello and Tom Driberg, who reportedly referred to him as 'Mountbottom'.

Lownie's new book, to be published on Thursday, contains an interview with Anthony Daly, a rent boy to the rich and famous during the 1970s. Daly claims: 'Tom said Mountbatten had something of a fetish for uniforms — handsome young men in military uniforms (with high boots) and beautiful boys in school uniform.'
No wonder Princess Diana turned into such a lunatic after marrying into that family. And it's not exactly a mystery why Prince William seems to gravitate toward the relative normalcy of his in-laws.

They don't think it's a bug

It's actually a feature designed to permit their ideological allies to exploit their infrastructure:
Tulsi Gabbard's email account went down right after the Democratic Debate and I believe I can provide assistance on where to focus your discovery efforts because I saw how other accounts, such as Jordan B. Peterson, was taken down. I'm going to recount how this happened to him so as to assist you in your legal discovery process.

During my tenor, Jordan B. Peterson had his gmail account deactivated and I had the opportunity to inspect the bug report as a full-time employee. What I found was that Google had a technical vulnerability that, when exploited, would take any gmail account down. Certain unknown 3rd party actors are aware of this secret vulnerability and exploit it. This is how it worked:

Take a target email address, change exactly one letter in that email address, and then create a new account with that changed email address. Malicious actors repeated this process over and over again until a network of spoof accounts for Jordan B. Peterson existed. Then these spoof accounts started generating spam emails. These email-spam blasts caught the attention of an AI system which fixed the problem by deactivating the spam accounts... and then ALSO the original account belonging to Jordan B. Peterson!

To my knowledge, this bug has never been fixed. When Google says an account was deactivated because of "suspicious" activity, this is how they often do it.

Lawfare is the way to defeat the social media giants. But you must be willing to fight them! Contrary to what most people believe, they are not set up for it, they do not anticipate it, they are not legally sophisticated, and they aren't even inclined to handle their own legal defenses with their expensive in-house lawyers. Their focus on diversity and inclusivity means that their lower-level executives and in-house counsel are almost astonishingly incompetent; look at the number of simple grammatical errors in the average Silicon Valley company's terms of use as evidence of that.

New Zealand won't give up its guns

It would appear New Zealanders are not falling for the same sleight-of-law for which the Australians and the English fell so readily:
Once again, responding to a horrendous crime by inflicting knee-jerk, authoritarian restrictions on innocent people proves to be an ineffective means of convincing people to obey. Specifically, New Zealand's government—which also stepped up censorship and domestic surveillance after bloody attacks on two Christchurch mosques earlier this year—is running into stiff resistance to new gun rules from firearms owners who are slow to surrender now-prohibited weapons and will probably never turn them in.

Officials should have seen it coming.

"Police are anticipating a number of people with banned firearms in their possession won't surrender them," Stuff reported at the end of May, based on internal government documents.

As of last week, only around 700 weapons had been turned over. There are an estimated 1.5 million guns—with an unknown number subject to the new prohibition on semiautomatic firearms—in the country overall.
The people of New Zealand have seen what has happened post-gun control in both Australia and England. The violence has gotten worse, not better. The governments have gotten more authoritarian, not less. And given the degraded demographic situation in all these countries, only a complete fool would comply with these intrinsically immoral laws and disarm himself.
