The President at Mount Rushmore

I can forgive the risible equalitarianism and the excessive civnattery - after all, what else can we expect, President Trump is a Boomer civic nationalist - given this strong defense at Mount Rushmore of Western civilization:
1776 represented the culmination of thousands of years of Western civilization and the triumph of not only spirit, but of wisdom, philosophy, and reason. And yet, as we meet here tonight, there is a growing danger that threatens every blessing our ancestors fought so hard for, struggled, they bled to secure. Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children. Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders, deface our most sacred memorials, and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities. Many of these people have no idea why they’re doing this, but some know what they are doing. They think the American people are weak and soft and submissive, but no, the American people are strong and proud and they will not allow our country and all of its values, history, and culture to be taken from them.

One of their political weapons is cancel culture, driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees. This is the very definition of totalitarianism, and it is completely alien to our culture and to our values and it has absolutely no place in the United States of America.

This attack on our liberty, our magnificent liberty must be stopped and it will be stopped very quickly. We will expose this dangerous movement, protect our nation’s children from this radical assault, and preserve our beloved American way of life. In our schools, our newsrooms, even our corporate boardrooms, there is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. It’s not going to happen to us.

Make no mistake. This left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American Revolution. In so doing they would destroy the very civilization that rescued billions from poverty, disease, violence, and hunger, and that lifted humanity to new heights of achievement, discovery, and progress. To make this possible, they are determined to tear down every statue, symbol, and memory of our national heritage.
President Trump isn't perfect and he isn't everything for which we'd hoped. But he is almost certainly better than the citizens of the USA actually merit.

Pedos on the British throne

Literally sitting on the royal throne, although it isn't quite what you might not unreasonably assume it to be:
A bombshell photo has emerged that shows child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein's alleged "pimp" Ghislaine Maxwell sitting in the British Queen's throne inside Buckingham Palace, according to reports. Maxwell was arrested by U.S. authorities this week over her alleged role in Epstein's child sex slavery operation.The newly emerged image shows Maxwell sitting in the throne alongside disgraced actor Kevin Spacey during a private tour of the palace organized by Britain's Prince Andrew, it has been reported.The photo was obtained by British newspaper The Telegraph and was reportedly taken in 2002.
That's really not a good look at all, although I suppose it would explain an awful lot about the Jimmy Saville catastrophe. At this point, I'm astonished that Prince Andrew hasn't been locked up in the Tower of London for the good of the monarchy.


Meanwhile, the British media is attempting to play this off as just "a Palace prank". It's just a prank, you see. Not a big deal at all. Don't even give the matter another thought. It's just a prank, just a juvenile prank, by a pair of naughty knuckleheads. Let's just move on.....

Not inclusive enough

It's amusing how warring SJWs always accuse each other of being racist, sexist, homophobic Nazis. It's as if they all know their attacks on the Right, which force the average conservative to assume the fetal position on demand, were pure nonsense all along:
In the latest example of ‘cancel culture’, novelist Gillian Philip was last week jettisoned from her role writing titles for a major publishing company.

It came after the writer, who has penned a popular series of books for eight-to-12-year-olds, added the hashtag #IStandWithJKRowling to her Twitter handle.

Her move sparked a torrent of online abuse and emails to her employer Working Partners, a ‘fiction packaging’ firm which devises series for publishing houses and commissions authors to write them.

Ms Philip, 56, had expressed her support for the Harry Potter creator after she retweeted an article referring to ‘people who menstruate’ and questioned why the story did not use the word ‘women’.  Ms Rowling was subjected to trolling and accused of being ‘transphobic’.

However, Ms Philip – one of several authors writing under the name Erin Hunter on popular animal fantasy series including Warrior Cats, Survivors and Bravelands – found herself sacked for her support of Ms Rowling.

After Ms Philip received sexualised abuse and deaths threats from the trans lobby, she tweeted ‘Bring it on, homophobes and lesbian-haters’ – which only inflamed the situation.

Within 24 hours, James Noble, managing editor of Working Partners, replied to the barrage of complaints saying: ‘The worlds created by Erin Hunter are meant to be inclusive for all readers and we want to let you know that Gillian Philip will no longer be writing any Erin Hunter novels.’
Just stay out of their world and keep them out of yours. If your company or your church or your softball team converges, either deconverge it by ejecting all the SJWs and their sympathizers or walk away without hesitation. It's never going to get better.

Designed to fail

It's now readily apparent that the conservative movement was designed to take a fall from the start. CDAN formally outs the late William F. Buckley:
This deceased writer/publisher of a well known magazine that still runs was also known for having a television show. His manner and speaking style were mocked on sketch comedy shows many times.

He preferred sexual relations with men rather than with women but like a lot of men of his generation he could not acknowledge this and so married and had children. In addition, the audience he cultivated would not have accepted this.

He spent a lot of time with homosexual prostitutes from a specific procurer.  He would often tell his favorites that he would refer to them on his TV show by assigning them an obscure word, Latin or old English, and then use the word on his show that week.

William F Buckley (National Review/Firing Line)
So, both Malcolm Forbes and William F. Buckley, two lions of the respective conservative establishment, were eminently controllable.

The Trumpslide is still on

Remember, the vote is not between President Trump and some mythical crossbreed of FDR, JFK, and Obama, it's between him and a candidate who is so much worse than an obviously sick Hillary Clinton that they have to keep him out of sight of the media 24-7.
Professor Helmut Norpoth from Stony Brook University told Lou Dobbs on August 16th, 2016, that Donald Trump had an 87% chance of winning the 2016 Presidential election.
trump green bay

Professor Norpoth is a political science professor at Long Island’s Stony Brook University. His model has been correct since 1996 on predicting the popular vote. Helmut joined Lou Dobbs again tonight to discuss the 2020 election.  He gives President Trump a 91% chance of winning the 2020 Presidential election.
His odds will probably go up as white Americans get even more tired of BLM antics over the summer.

Shut up, Ted

How many national anthems do we have??

Is there an Hispanic national anthem?

An Asian-American national anthem?

This is asinine. We are ONE America. E Pluribus Unum.
- Ted Cruz

Shut up, Ted. You're a Cuban who arrived by way of Canada. You're not a Texan. You're not an American. You're a foreign mandarin of an imperial state.

If blacks tell you they're playing their national anthem, then they are obviously a distinct and separate nation. Listen to them. Or are you denying them self-determination?

SJW corpocracy smells blood

They're going after the Washington Redskins again.
  • FedEx is requesting a name change for the team that plays at FedEx Field. A day after a group of investment firms asked FedEx and other companies to stop doing business with the team unless it changes the team name, FedEx released a statement to multiple media outlets saying it has requested a name change. “We have communicated to the team in Washington our request that they change the team name,” the statement said.
  • At Nike.com, there’s no sign of any merchandise bearing the name or logo of the Washington franchise. There’s more: The vertical drop-down menu on the left side of the site that comes up when searching for gear for any of the other NFL teams completely omits the Washington franchise. Last year, Nike omitted the team name from its annual Salute to Service collection. The more recent action sends a much stronger message.
If Snyder and the NFL are foolish enough to cave on this, it's only a matter of time before the New England PATRIOTS and the Kansas City CHIEFS are targeted. And no amount of exegesis concerning what is and what is not a racial slur is going to prevent it.

At some point in time, people are going to grasp that giving any ground at all to these demoniacs is simply an invitation to subsequent attacks. There is always one, and only one, answer to give to corporate threats to pull support in order to force your compliance in anything: "fine, go away now."

Historian in hot water over history

How dare British historians actually know anything about British and world history!
Historian David Starkey could lose his University of Cambridge fellowship after he claimed 'slavery was not genocide' because 'so many damn blacks live in Africa and Britain.'

Dr Starkey, 75, was accused of racism following an interview with BeLeave founder Darren Grimes, during which he argued the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement is 'wholly and entirely a product of white colonisation'.

Speaking via video link from his home, the historian said 'the only reason that these young black protestors are here' is 'because of slavery'.

He added: 'What has happened of course is that the only reason that these young black protestors are here - isn't it slavery?

'It's only because of the great African diaspora, the compulsory diaspora, because of slavery. What of course that brings you up to confronting is of course slavery was not the equivalent of the Holocaust.

'Slavery was not genocide, otherwise there wouldn't be so many damn blacks in Africa or in Britain, would there? An awful lot of them survived.

'And again, there's no point in arguing against globalisation or Western civilisation: they are all products of it. We are all products of it.
Slavery obviously isn't genocide. Economically inefficient as it is, it wouldn't have worked as long as it did if it was. American Indians suffered genocide in part because they didn't make good slaves. Africans, quite obviously, did not, with the exception of those living in the Belgian Congo.

If the British want to beat themselves up over the moral failings of the West - and I am not saying that it should - it should do so over the conquest, genocide, and near-total dispossession of the American Indian, not its treatment of Africans, or Arabs, or Jews.

Maxwell arrested

I wonder how long it will be before she, too, doesn't kill herself:
Ghislaine Maxwell, the former girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein and alleged madam who is accused of procuring young girls for him, has been arrested in New Hampshire.

The FBI took her into custody on Thursday morning and she is due to appear in a federal court later, NBC News reports, citing two unnamed sources.

At this time the charges she is facing are unknown but they are understood to have been filed by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.
The net keeps closing. No wonder they're so desperate.

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.

It's clear whom they serve

Sir Michael Palin and other Knights of the British Empire are objecting to St. George crushing Satan underneath his feet:
Monty Python star Sir Michael Palin has joined calls to redesign one of the Queen's medals after a petition was launched claiming the insignia  is 'racist' and 'looks similar to George Floyd's killing'. The medal for the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George - one of the Queen's highest honours - previously featured a picture of a white angel standing on the neck of a black man.

The image, which was changed in 2011 to feature a light-skinned devil, is actually a depiction of the Archangel Michael defeating Satan. But a petition claims the medal bears a resemblance to the death of George Floyd, who died in May after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for almost eight minutes as he was being arrested. Sir Michael, was appointed a Knight Commander of the Order of St George and St Michael in 2019 for 'services to travel, culture and geography', has since backed calls to change the design, while the Governor General of Jamaica Sir Patrick Allen has said he will no longer wear the award and called for it to be redesigned.
It's pretty obvious that it's not any purported similarity to St. George Floyd's death that bothers them, it's the way in which their master's defeat is so humiliatingly portrayed.

The wicked are becoming increasingly transparent about where their true loyalties lie.

Jordan triples down

He totally did go without sleep for 25 days. Because studies. An interview with Jordan Peterson by Mikhaela Peterson:
JP: I couldn't stand up without fainting. I couldn't sleep. I don't think I slept at all for for something on the in the order of three weeks.

MP: Yeah, people like you went on Joe Rogan and talked about this Sulfite reaction you had and how you didn't sleep and people commented that, oh, it's not possible to stay awake for that long. But if you actually look into sodium metabolic sulfide allergies, The symptoms that we experienced aren't unheard of, there are papers.

JP: It's also impossible to stay awake voluntarily that long. That's not the same as not being able to sleep. Those are very, very different things, whatever. It's possible that when I was laying there thinking I wasn't sleeping, that now and then I drifted off and would wake up and not notice. I mean, I can't eliminate that as a possibility. But I can certainly tell you that I slept little enough so that it was exceedingly unpleasant. It's a very long time to stay awake.
Liars always resort to redefinitions as soon as they are caught and called out. And Jordan Peterson appears to be a seriously pathological liar. To this day, he still can't admit that he was simply talking nonsense on Joe Rogan.

He just can't do it.

And it definitely, definitely, wasn't meth.

The One-Upper

The new episode of Hypergamouse, NO ONE LIKES A ONE-UPPER, is now live on Webtoons. And Hypergamouse artist Lacey Fairchild is rapidly becoming one of Arkhaven's star illustrators, as she's in the process of graduating from just illustrating the strips to writing scripts as well.

As I mentioned on SocialGalactic, what sets her apart is her ability to convey facial expressions and body language in just a few simple lines. Here is a great example: the body language expressed by the female mouse in this panel from HM02 beautifully sets up the foundation for several future strips to come.

UPDATE: In not-entirely-unrelated news, MIDNIGHT’S WAR finished the Short Story submission period as the 26th most popular entry of the 5,071 total entries, and the 7th most popular in the Brain category. Prizes are awarded to the top ten entries in both categories, so it will be interesting to see how it fares in the judges’ eyes. The announcement of the winners will be July 31.

St. Efan's statement

Concerning his deplatforming by YouTube yesterday.
This is Stefan Molyneux. As you may have heard, 14 years of my life, thousands of videos, billions of comments, hundreds of millions of views, and nearly a million subscribers have been destroyed, has been erased from |YouTube.

The accusation is the usual one, that I'm fermenting violence and hatred and so on, which is not true at all. I have consistently promulgated the non-aggression principle and called for reason and evidence as the methodology by which we can resolve social disputes and differences. It doesn't seem to have mattered, of course, the reality is that the book burning is underway. Myself and many other dissidents and anti-communist intellectuals and speakers have also had channels destroyed across a wide variety of platforms within the span of only one hour in what I assume is a highly coordinated effort to silence us. And it is a blow, don't get me wrong, it is a huge blow, it is a huge challenge, and the goal of course is to remove the middle, to remove those of us who are looking for peaceful solutions, rational solutions, philosophical solutions, to social differences. To take us out so that there is no center to society and everyone can gravitate to the extremes wherein the tinderbox of violence can be lit in a revolutionary conflagration of brutality.

And I'm going to strongly urge you, my friends, to resist that temptation, resist that temptation to go to the extremes, to go to hostility, to go to rage, to go to violence. It is not too late. There is still incredible technology that we can use to further the rational and philosophical discussion of issues within society and I'm begging you please stay in the conversation. It is my dedication and my foundational goal to maintain, and possibly even grow, this philosophical conversation despite the inevitable blowbacks that philosophers always receive from the powers that be, so please help me out.

It's going to be a pretty harsh winter and a pretty big reorientation. I'm going to beg you, please, my friends, go to freedomain.com. Help me out. I will come back stronger and better and we can avoid the escalation that could burn us all to the ground.
I very much like Stefan. I admire him. He's a smart man. He's a good man. He has good intentions and a good heart. But he simply does not understand the times.

The time for conversation is over. While it may take two to tango, it only takes one to war. This is not a time for peaceful, rational or philosophical solutions, it is, rather, a time to know your enemy, to know yourself, and to embrace the inevitable conflicts to come.

So, gentle readers, what is your profession?

White Fans Don't Matter

The NBA dives deeper into the sea of convergence:
One of the central arguments against restarting the NBA season was the momentum social justice reform had gained in the United States. Playing basketball would theoretically provide a distraction for a nation whose focus should be on combatting both systemic racism and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and a number of players were reportedly uneasy about being part of such a distraction. Were the NBA to resume play under the circumstances, it would have to use its platform in the name of social change in order to satisfy those players. Fortunately, the NBA has taken significant steps in that arena.

On Saturday, it was reported that players will be able to include social justice messages on the backs of their jerseys at Disney. That decision, while powerful, puts the onus on players. The league itself needed to send a message of solidarity, and is doing so with its latest decision. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Zach Lowe and Ramona Shelburne, the league plans to paint "Black Lives Matter" on both sidelines on all three of the courts they will be using at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex.
Brave. And stunning. Thank you for this.

And when attendance and television viewership plunge off a cliff, the coronavirus, not the obvious corporate cancer, will be blamed. I'd like to say that I will henceforth be ignoring the National BLM Association, but I haven't paid any attention to the NBA since Michael Jordan retired the second time.

Suspicions confirmed

The Chief Justice is no conservative:
A divided Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics, reasserting a commitment to abortion rights over fierce opposition from dissenting conservative justices in the first big abortion case of the Trump era.

Chief Justice John Roberts and his four more liberal colleagues ruled that the law requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals violates abortion rights the court first announced in the landmark Roe v. Wade decision in 1973.

The outcome is not the last word on the decades-long fight over abortion with dozens of state-imposed restrictions winding their way through the courts. But the decision was a surprising defeat for abortion opponents, who thought that a new conservative majority with two of President Donald Trump’s appointees on board would start chipping away at abortion access.
Roberts is proving to be the most treacherous Chief Justice since Earl Warren. And he is confirming, once more, that no one is going to be voting their way out of this one.

Another day, another scandal

Today's scandal du jour wafting out of the fetid freakshow that used to be called science fiction and fantasy stars two overrated mediocrities, Elizabeth Bear and Scott Lynch:
I was groomed and abused by Scott Lynch and Elizabeth Bear for several years.

For a long time, I never wanted to talk about this in public. I didn’t want anybody to know about this. I only began rethinking yesterday and I was still considering what to do about it, but… apparently I don’t have that luxury anymore. Additionally, I’ve recently heard some new  information about their abusive behavior towards other people--young women, usually baby writers who do not have established careers, girls they had mentorship relationships with--and frankly SOMEBODY has to be brave enough to speak up first, or these young women will continue to be hurt and intimidated into silence, just as I was.

This is terrifying to write. I’m afraid of career repercussions, for one. I’m also alarmed at the potential threat to my physical safety: Lynch and Bear live 15mins away & know how to get to my house. I spoke to my roommate about comfort levels with me speaking out, and we have prepared for the possibility that they could confront me in person.
It goes on and on and on without ever saying very much of significance, which tends to prove her claims of having been mentored by Bear and Lynch. On the plus side, however, it does explain why mainstream science fiction and fantasy are all but unreadable these days.

Scott Lynch's response is pretty much guaranteed to get his book contracts canceled, despite his having dutifully performed all the required ritual genuflections before the SF-SJWs.
I have read the June 25 statement made by Alex Rowland on their website, and while it contains much that I would consider merely heavily edited, it also contains statements that I consider to be outright lies and defamation.

I will be responding in more detail as promptly as I possibly can, and I will also be inviting them to back, modify, or delete the statements that I consider actionable.
It's really not that hard. The more enthusiastic the fan, the further you should keep them away from you and everyone you know. And that goes double for any female fan who shows any signs of being attracted to you.

Palestinian Lives Matter

And in a blink of an eye, all that massive funding for Black Lives Matter suddenly began to disappear:
UK Jewish activists have lashed out at the British chapter of Black Lives Matter over its pro-Palestinian tweets. They say the anti-racist movement's criticism had anti-Semitic undertones.

BLM UK posted a series of tweets on Sunday, criticizing Israel over its plans to annex occupied Palestinian territories and calling for solidarity with the Palestinian cause. One of the earlier posts stated that “mainstream British politics is gagged of the right to critique Zionism, and Israel’s settler colonial pursuits”.

As Israel moves forward with the annexation of the West Bank, and mainstream British politics is gagged of the right to critique Zionism, and Israel’s settler colonial pursuits, we loudly and clearly stand beside our Palestinian comrades. FREE PALESTINE.
#BlackLivesMatterUK

That particular part prompted a furious backlash from the British NGO Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA). “Zionism is the movement for the self-determination of Jews,” CAA tweeted in response. “So-called ‘anti-Zionism’ exclusively denies Jews that universal right and is therefore anti-Semitic.”
Notice the way the juxtaposition of their definitions exposes their word spells:
  • Denying Americans the universal right of self-determination = anti-racism.
  • Denying Jews the universal right of self-determination = anti-Semitism
  • The movement for the self-determination of Jews = Zionism
  • The movement for the self-determination of Americans = White Supremacy

The Etiquette of Evil


The fourth and final episode of Midnight's War, Arkhaven's entry in the Webtoons Short Story contest, is now available. It is called THE ETIQUETTE OF EVIL and I think you will find that it more than makes up for the lack of action in the previous episode.

As for any resemblances to any real-life figures that one may observe or imagine in this episode, rest assured that I gave absolutely no instructions to the illustrator in that regard. It would appear he has a rather puckish sense of humor.

The entire series comes in four parts:
  1. Not Even the Wicked Dead
  2. They Also Serve
  3. The Blood Must Flow
  4. The Etiquette of Evil

Why they name names

I once asked a reporter known for writing hit pieces why journalists always write "X, real name Y," when writing about people they don't like while simply using the pen and stage names of those of whom they approve. She explained that it was for the same reason every statement by the target of the hit piece "claims" something even when it is a statement confirmed to be factual, to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the targeted individual.

Apparently the New York Times is now taking a similarly one-sided approach to the anonymity of sources:
A prominent pseudonymous blogger has shut down his site after a New York Times reporter refused to conceal his identity in a forthcoming piece, putting his livelihood and life in danger.

Psychiatrist Scott Alexander (his first and middle, but not last, name) has worked for years to cultivate a small but thriving intellectual community through his blog Slate Star Codex. That came to a halt Monday evening, however, when Alexander deleted the blog, replacing it with a post entitled "NYT Is Threatening My Safety By Revealing My Real Name, So I Am Deleting The Blog."

The deletion was the culmination of a week of buzz that a Times reporter, Cade Metz, was reporting a story on Alexander's site and the community it spawned, prompting widespread fears that Alexander would be the next figure "canceled" by a media exposé, possibly as retribution for his criticisms of modern progressivism.

Neither Metz nor his editor Pui-Wing Tam responded to a request for comment. Times vice president for communications Danielle Rhoades Ha told the Washington Free Beacon, "we do not comment on what we may or may not publish in the future. But when we report on newsworthy or influential figures, our goal is always to give readers all the accurate and relevant information we can."

Alexander and others interviewed by Metz told the Free Beacon that they do not believe Metz wanted to write a "hit piece." But Metz did insist that Times guidelines compelled him to disclose Alexander's real name, derailing an interview with the blogger.

There is little evidence that such a policy exists at the Times, which has granted anonymity or pseudonymity to an Apple news executive, a left-wing podcaster, and even other subjects of Metz's story.
The media is now wholly weaponized against America and against Western civilization, the Good, the Beautiful, and the True. And there is no excuse for still falling for the same lies reporters have been telling people for decades.

When Metz reached out, Alexander says, he wanted to discuss not these controversies, but the community SSC had built, in a largely positive way.

Sure he did. They use the same set of tricks every time. "I just want to let you tell you side of the story. I just want to understand this new thing that you're the expert on. I just want to discuss this success that you've had." First the bait, then the switch.

Most people are like toddlers being offered candy when it comes to the prospect of media attention. Perhaps it may help to keep this in mind: if it was going to benefit you, they would charge you for it.
