Spielberg's religious fraud

The predatory evil of Steven Spielberg is beginning to become more obvious every year. But while his pedophistry has been largely hidden, his incessant Holocaustian propaganda doesn't survive even the most cursory of examinations, let alone a reading of the fine print:

We note with considerable dismay the dissimulation employed to assert (as Steven Spielberg’s movie Schindler’s List does) that, “The Talmud teaches that to save one life is to save the entire world.”

This preposterous humanitarian gloss applied to the rabidly ethnocentric Talmud, was given credibility, both as dialogue in Spielberg’s movie and as the film’s motto, reproduced on countless posters that probably adorn school rooms to this day. The motto, dramatized in the film, is a purported to be a quote from BT Sanhedrin 37a, but the Talmud contains no such humanistic, universalist statement.

The uncensored Babylonian Talmud in Sanhedrin 37a is concerned only with the welfare of fully human beings, i.e. those described in its text as “Jews.” The actual Talmud tractate reads: “Whoever saves a single life in Israel, Scripture regards him as if he had saved the entire world”

This reflects the ruling of Maimonides in his Mishneh Torah, Sefer Nezikin, Rotzeach u’Shmirat Nefesh, 1:1: “Whenever a person kills the soul of another person from Israel, he transgresses a negative commandment, as it says, “thou shalt not murder.” With his narrow definition of who should not be killed, Maimonides nullified the Word of God in Genesis 9:6, Exodus 20:13 and Deuteronomy 5:17.

Mr. Spielberg’s fraud was peddled throughout American culture and educational institutions. What is instructive about this faking is the extent to which the corporate media have been sublimely complicit in circulating it, while their “fact-checking” departments failed to detect the cheat, if indeed they bothered to undertake the obligation to do so.

To be fair, it is textually possible that a literal English reading of this tractate also means that saving a single Palestinian life is saving the entire world. But I tend to doubt that is the accepted interpretation or that there will be any change of opinion concerning the morality of the BDS movement.

As for Spielberg, it appears he will soon be learning how little it profits a man to gain the Hellmouth by selling his soul.

The new family-friendly BLM

 BLM is trying to quietly sweep their Marxism and anti-family ideology out of view of the public:

Social media users noticed Monday the controversial Black Lives Matter organization — the radical business behind the “social justice” movement — deleted its oft-cited “what we believe” page.

In the since-removed section of the website, Black Lives Matter said its mission is to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure,” to “dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work ‘double shifts’ so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work,” as well as “foster a queer-affirming network” by “freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual.”

Now the website states: “Sorry, but the page you were trying to view does not exist.”

They still believe it, of course. They just don't want you to KNOW that they believe it.

No government contracts for SJWs

 The God-Emperor is hitting the diversicrats where it hurts:

A few weeks ago, I BANNED efforts to indoctrinate government employees with divisive and harmful sex and race-based ideologies. Today, I've expanded that ban to people and companies that do business with our Country, the United States Military, Government Contractors, and Grantees. Americans should be taught to take PRIDE in our Great Country, and if you don’t, there’s nothing in it for you!

God loves Big Sexy

 For He has made his enemies ridiculous:

The Katie Nolan vs. Jason Whitlock Thunderdome took a wild twist Monday night when Talcum X took time out of his busy schedule to chime in on the Twitter rager that has blue checkmarks up in arms. “Disgusting that this outlet is bragging about a black woman having to lock her account from online harassment,” Talcum, aka Shaun King tweeted before someone let him in on Katie being white. Really, really white.

In fairness, Shaun King has yet to realize that he isn't black, so it is understandable that his ability to distinguish black people from white people might not be highly developed. 

America's race wars have officially gone meta when a white man who thinks he's black attacks a black man for criticizing a white woman the white man thinks is black. All that we're missing is the white man who thinks he's black thinking the black man is white and attempting to play the race card on him.

7 families, 7 books

The seven families have been selected and notified about the seven donated Castalia Library subscriptions they will be receiving. Each family will receive seven Library editions, the six books included in the annual subscription plus the seventh book to complete the Plutarch pair.

33 homeschooled children and 14 parents will be the beneficiaries of these beautiful donations.

My sincere thanks to the seven incredibly generous donors. You have planted acorns, and though you may never see the trees, you will know that it is thanks to you that they grow. Well done and thank you!

Call their bluff

Facebook threatens to pull out of Europe if it isn't permit to continue ignoring European data protection and privacy laws:

Facebook has threatened to pack up its toys and go home if European regulators don’t back down and let the social network get its own way.

In a court filing in Dublin, Facebook said that a decision by Ireland’s Data Protection Commission (DPC) would force the company to pull up stakes and leave the 410 million people who use Facebook and photo-sharing service Instagram in the lurch.

If the decision is upheld, “it is not clear to [Facebook] how, in those circumstances, it could continue to provide the Facebook and Instagram services in the EU,” Yvonne Cunnane, who is Facebook Ireland’s head of data protection and associate general counsel, wrote in a sworn affidavit.

The decision Facebook’s referring to is a preliminary order handed down last month to stop the transfer of data about European customers to servers in the U.S., over concerns about U.S. government surveillance of the data.

I'm not exactly what you would call a fan of the European Union, but I would love to see the following sequence:

  1. Call their bluff.
  2. Watch them back down.
  3. Prosecute them for their past violations of GDPR.
  4. Prosecute them for their ongoing violations of GDPR.
Someone has to rein in the lawless Tech Cartel, and to date, neither the Trump administration nor anyone outside the Chinese government has demonstrated the courage required to do so.

Impeccable Timing

As we've seen time and time again, SJWs can't help themselves. Twitter's most recent attempt to play publisher and manage its trends appears likely to backfire in the near future:

It’s important to note exactly what’s happening here, Twitter is choosing a subject to trend and making a values judgment about why that subject is trending. That’s the very essence of being a publisher. They are publishing their own opinion.

Twitter is saying, “Jason Whitlock opens himself up to criticism after making sexist comments about ESPN hosts.”

I added the bold language because it’s important for all of you to see.

Look at what’s going on here, Twitter is directly deciding what to trend and then making a values judgment about what was said. They are sharing their opinions. You (hopefully) read the columns. Did Whitlock treat anyone in those columns any different than he has countless men, athletes or media figures, he has ripped for decades? In my opinion, of course not.

But maybe you disagree.

That’s fine, that’s your right.

You are entitled to publish your opinion on your website or your social media feeds and be responsible for what you say. And if you do that, you’re being held to a different standard than the platform you write on because you are the content creator. Twitter’s distributing your content to the masses and claiming they aren’t responsible for it, all while monetizing their entire business on opinions. The more people who have opinions all day long, the more money the content platforms make. (Which is why they’re all created to seduce us into caring so much about likes and retweets and attention).

But here’s the deal, Twitter isn’t behaving as a content neutral company in any way when some anonymous person we don’t know who works at Twitter is labeling Whitlock’s opinions sexist. They are directly making a determination about content that they deem objectionable and then featuring it prominently on their website. All in an effort to try and punish the person who has stepped outside the bounds of what they deem to be an acceptable opinion.

Twitter is directly impacting the marketplace of ideas in this country while claiming they aren’t involved at all. They are pretending to be content neutral when in reality they are making a calculated and direct decision to be engaged in editorial content. They are picking sides and claiming to be neutral.

Why does that matter?

Because if you are in the editorial business, you are subject to lawsuits for those opinions you share. If you’re a platform, you aren’t.

So who at Twitter decided Jason Whitlock’s comments were “sexist?” We have no idea. If I had to guess, it was probably someone working in Twitter’s trending topics division but that’s only a guess. In reality, who is that person or persons? What are their biases? Why did they try to slide in their opinion on this topic and hope no one would notice? Why did they decide to make this a trending topic? And most importantly how can Twitter claim to be an unbiased content platform when they make clear editorial decisions such as these?

Those are all fascinating questions.

Which I’m sure Jason Whitlock will be interested in discussing on Thursday of this week.

When he testifies in front of Congress about content discrimination from tech companies.

It's LONG past time to end the platform/publisher dance these companies have been permitted to play. They must be forced to choose one or the other. If you want to edit beyond the direct requirements of the law, you have to take responsibility. If you don't want to take responsibility, then you don't get to edit.

Twitter has taken an official stance that all public criticism of women, no matter how valid, is intrinsically sexist. If you want to  know what a feminist society would look like, now you know.

A message from YouTube

The friendly folks at YouTube Trust & Safety sent me a cheerful little message:

Hi Darkstream,

Our team has reviewed your content, and, unfortunately, we think it violates our hate speech policy. We've removed the following content from YouTube:

Video: Darkstream 607: The decline of the US empire

Warning

We know that this might be disappointing, but it's important to us that YouTube is a safe place for all. If content breaks our rules, we remove it. If you think we've made a mistake, you can appeal and we’ll take another look. Keep reading for more details.

How your content violated the policy

Content glorifying or inciting violence against another person or group of people is not allowed on YouTube. We also don't allow any content that encourages hatred of another person or group of people based on their membership in a protected group. We review educational, documentary, artistic, and scientific content on a case-by-case basis. Limited exceptions are made for content with sufficient and appropriate context and where the purpose of posting is clear.

How this affects your channel

Because it’s the first time, this is just a warning. If it happens again, your channel will get a strike and you won’t be able to do things like upload, post, or live stream for 1 week. 

What's interesting about this is that the video was only available to silver and gold channel members. Which means that it wasn't the usual SJWs, but rather, some gamma who paid to join the channel, then rooted around in more than 30 videos to try to find something that would trigger Trust & Safety.

So henceforth, all prerecorded Darkstreams will only be available on Unauthorized. Live Darkstreams will be recorded on YouTube, then removed.


UPDATE: Meanwhile, YouTube has absolutely no problem featuring videos made by actual pedophiles in police custody.

Castalia Library donation

First, I would like to thank the extremely generous - and by their own preference, anonymous - donors
who very graciously donated an entire YEAR of Castalia Library to SIX  SEVEN families. The families will be alerted by email tonight. As I mentioned when the offer was made, Castalia will be adding LIVES Vol. I by Plutarch to the donations, so each of the six families selected will receive seven deluxe books bound in topgrain cowhide. I am truly amazed by the generousness of this community and the ready willingness shown by those who with more resources to help those with less, as well as the depth of the concern demonstrated for the future generations.

These donors will never sit in the shade of the trees they are planting, but they have gone out of their way to plant intellectual acorns nevertheless. Let us hope they turn out to be mighty oaks indeed.

As subscribers know, one of these seven books will be Summa Elvetica by yours truly, Book 7 in the Library subscription and Book I in the Library/Libraria sets of Arts of Dark and Light. I'm taking this opportunity to introduce the cover of the Library edition, seen below, and to announce that it will be a) a signed edition that is b) available as a one-off purchase to non-subscribers. We're cutting the retail price from $150 to $115 due to the high level of interest in the book, and subscribers should note that they will receive a new discount code soon in the event they wish to purchase additional copies.

We won't know what the print run will be until the end of December, but we will keep it under 2500.

ID'ing the pedo elite

It appears a lot more evil creeps are about to be identified:

Jeffrey Epstein's flight logs on his aircraft, including his 'Lolita Express' jet, have been subpoenaed, sparking fear among the rich and famous who partied with the pedophile.

The Attorney General in the US Virgin Islands, where the billionaire had a home and is said to have carried out many of his horrific crimes, has demanded to see the logs which document the passengers on his aircraft.

The logs on his four helicopters and three planes span from 1998 until his suicide in prison last year.

A source said: 'The records that have been subpoenaed will make the ones Rodgers provided look like a Post-It note. There is panic among many of the rich and famous.'

Lawyers for the victims said the logs released in 2009 did not include the flights of chief pilot Larry Visoki who had flown Epstein for more than 25 years. 

The rocks must be overturned. The wicked must be exposed and held accountable for their crimes. The Swamp must be drained.

The consequences of the choice

CS Lewis described the process and the consequences of taking the ticket in an essay entitled The Inner Ring:

To nine out of ten of you the choice which could lead to scoundrelism will come, when it does come, in no very dramatic colours. Obviously bad men, obviously threatening or bribing, will almost certainly not appear. Over a drink, or a cup of coffee, disguised as triviality and sandwiched between two jokes, from the lips of a man, or woman, whom you have recently been getting to know rather better and whom you hope to know better still—just at the moment when you are most anxious not to appear crude, or naïf or a prig—the hint will come. It will be the hint of something which the public, the ignorant, romantic public, would never understand: something which even the outsiders in your own profession are apt to make a fuss about: but something, says your new friend, which “we”—and at the word “we” you try not to blush for mere pleasure—something “we always do.”

And you will be drawn in, if you are drawn in, not by desire for gain or ease, but simply because at that moment, when the cup was so near your lips, you cannot bear to be thrust back again into the cold outer world. It would be so terrible to see the other man’s face—that genial, confidential, delightfully sophisticated face—turn suddenly cold and contemptuous, to know that you had been tried for the Inner Ring and rejected. And then, if you are drawn in, next week it will be something a little further from the rules, and next year something further still, but all in the jolliest, friendliest spirit. It may end in a crash, a scandal, and penal servitude; it may end in millions, a peerage and giving the prizes at your old school. But you will be a scoundrel.

That is my first reason. Of all the passions, the passion for the Inner Ring is most skillful in making a man who is not yet a very bad man do very bad things. My second reason is this. The torture allotted to the Danaids in the classical underworld, that of attempting to fill sieves with water, is the symbol not of one vice, but of all vices. It is the very mark of a perverse desire that it seeks what is not to be had. The desire to be inside the invisible line illustrates this rule. As long as you are governed by that desire you will never get what you want. You are trying to peel an onion: if you succeed there will be nothing left. Until you conquer the fear of being an outsider, an outsider you will remain.

The ticket, and those who offer it, have been around for a very long time. Metallica described it in rather more succinct terms.

Careful what you wish

Careful what you say

Careful what you wish you may regret it

Careful what you wish you just might get it

Some things will never stop being funny

The media endangers itself

Journalists no longer should be afforded any protection, because journalists are not neutral observers. As they have chosen their side, they should be treated like the enemies of law and order that they are. As the primary enforcers of "hate speech", they have no justification to hide their actions behind "freedom" or "free speech".

"I remember this guy Velshi," Trump said. "He got hit in the knee with a canister of tear gas, and he went down. He was down. 'My knee, my knee.' Nobody cared, these guys didn't care, they moved him aside. And they just walked right through. It was the most beautiful thing," Trump said. "No, because after we take all that crap for weeks and weeks, and you finally see men get up there and go right through them, wasn't it really a beautiful sight? It's called law and order."

In a statement, MSNBC responded to Trump's taunt, accusing him of encouraging violence towards the press. 

"Freedom of the press is a pillar of our democracy. When the President mocks a journalist for the injury he sustained while putting himself in harm's way to inform the public, he endangers thousands of other journalists and undermines our freedoms."

First, the USA is not a democracy. Second, the press has already undermined those freedoms. They don't deserve any protection at all. They deserve prosecution.

Flat-out Judases

Jim Caviezel rips into the Churchian leadership of Protestants and Catholics alike: 

Catholic actor Jim Caviezel, best known for playing Jesus in the 2004 film The Passion of the Christ, blasted “lukewarm” Christians in a Fox News interview, saying it’s “a bloody shame” one can’t tell the difference “between a priest, a bishop, or a politician.”

“I got to play Jesus, some of us love Peter or Paul, but there are many of us right now, they are flat out Judases, okay? Or they’re Pontius Pilates or they're the Pharisees, okay?” Caviezel told Shannon Bream on the Fox News show FOX@Night yesterday.

“It’s a bloody shame if you can’t tell the difference between a priest, a bishop, or a politician. It’s really sad, but this is called lukewarmness, and Christ has a very special place for them, and they know it.”

Caviezel appeared as a guest on FOX@Night to discuss his latest movie, Infidel, which he described to Bream as a “well executed thriller.” Caviezel made the remarks when asked by Bream about what his concerns are regarding the role of faith, and what people should be doing about it in today’s world.

He was blunt with Bream, telling her that his new film is not some “candy-ass Christian stupid film,” but is rather one about “what is really going on today” in terms of the persecution of Christians in the Middle East.

“Well, it’s relevant because we have this thing called cancel culture, and if Christians don’t watch, it will be canceling Christianity as well, because a lot of our pastors, okay, our bishops, our priests — they’re laying right over,” Caviezel told Bream.

“They let their churches being burned, all right? How do we know that? Well, it’s right there in the news. Statues being ripped down. They don’t say anything.”

He's absolutely right. God will certainly spit what passes for the modern Church out of His mouth, although most Churchians are worse than lukewarm. They follow the world and the Prince of this world, not Jesus Christ. That's why they are laying right over; their objective is to lead their flocks away from God.

Read the Bible. Fear God. Serve Jesus Christ. Do not follow evil men and women into Hell simply because they call themselves christians, pastors, priests, or popes.

Pity the poor SF-SJW

Strange, I don't recall any of them being terribly bothered about fake reviews back when their fellow SJWs were posting fake reviews about A THRONE OF BONES or SJWs Always Lie. But now that Tor authors are being targeted by fake reviewers, it's a national emergency:

Remember, this is a book none of them have read, and none of them even have access to. We know who advanced reader copies have been sent to, and none of them are on the list. This is purely about continuing their terror campaign against a randomly picked target for fun.

I fully expect that before I wake up tomorrow, STARSHIP REPO will have several dozen fake, malicious reviews already posted on its Amazon page, along with the half dozen that have already appeared on Goodreads. All of the above evidence and explanation has already been repeatedly sent to Amazon customer service, both from myself, and from my publisher. And what has Amazon done in response?

Absolutely nothing. Indeed, they have actively refused to take any action at all, falling back on the excuse that their algorithms have already determined the reviews are genuine, and no human actively polices them anyway.

This is, to put it mildly, disappointing coming from one of the largest and most powerful companies in the entire world. When all is said and done, I don’t really blame the trolls for their antisocial, maladjusted behavior, any more than I would blame a baby for soiling its diaper, or a college student puking up six hours of 2-4-1 Long Island Ice Teas in an Applebee’s sink on their 21st birthday. In all three cases, they simply have no control over themselves, and can’t be expected to do better.

But Amazon and other companies like Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit can be expected to do better. Indeed, we must demand they do. Targets of online harassment campaigns must be given the tools they need to combat these all-encompassing attacks, and their oppressors silenced.

Somehow, when it comes to our collective online lives, society has agreed to the perverse notion that people of accomplishment and status, be they actors, athletes, writers, or musicians, should just shut up and take it when harassed. “Don’t feed the trolls” people who have never been in the spotlight say, not realizing that trolls turn to stone in the presence of sunlight. Meanwhile, hordes of anonymous terrorists are somehow afforded infinite free speech rights, up to and including consequence-free libel, incitement to violence, and threats of bodily harm or death.

This social compact is not just counterintuitive, but utterly insane. It validates and encourages the dead worst behavior, from the world’s most awful people. It has poisoned social media and public discourse, and it must change.

I, for one, can't be bothered to care. It is what it is. Maybe they should consider building their own platforms.

Blinded by lies

 AC points out that the US "meritocracy" was always a lie:

It is amazing how a conglomeration of these little lies, slipped in below your awareness, almost subconsciously, blinded us completely. We would see pedophile rings, and idiots in power, and public graft, and organized riots, and rumors of a vast surveillance state, and the richest people who were all new billionaires that all got their money off a chance clever idea while no multi-generational old-money family starting with billions, ever stole their idea and their fortune before they ever made it, creating multi-generational dynasties with so much wealth they were undefeatable. We even see an eerie exact rerun of pre-WWII Germany. And we saw all of that, pointing to a shadow dictatorship just out of sight which was lying to us, and rerunning a global plan for world war. But what we believed was we lived in the freest country in the world with privacy, and the people in control of the government, and elections, and it could never really be taken from us. And in reality, we never had it to begin with.

But it is all falling apart now. The truth always breaks through eventually.

I left the USA in part because at the age of 20 I was given the opportunity to see, up close and personal, what sort of people were at the very heart of power in the USA. And they were not only mediocrities, they were corrupt to the bone, without an atom of truth or honesty or integrity in them. 

Perhaps the most accurate way to describe the present system of US government is wickedocracy, or if you prefer, iniquitocracy. Advancement within the system depends upon one's willingness to take the ticket, to sell one's soul, to render oneself a hostage to the rulers of the darkness of this world. This is why the establishment hates President Trump and Qanon with such a virulent passion. The President and the movement represent the first genuine threat to the wickedocracy in generations.

Challenge accepted

The Left is promising war over Ruth Bader Ginsberg's dead body:

Mount up. You dare try and replace her right now and there will be a war. That’s a promise. 

Signed,

#RBG

Seems to me they already started what they think passes for a war over George Floyd's dead body. Either way, the sooner things get rolling in the USA, the better for actual Americans. But I very much doubt the God-Emperor is going to permit anything to get out of hand on his watch.

Two new books

First, fans of Kai Wai Cheah will be very pleased to learn that Castalia House has finally published the third volume in The Covenant Chronicles, The Prince of Shadows. It's every bit as good as the first two.


THE OLD GODS ARE COMING BACK!

When a black op goes awry, the Nemesis Project pulls deniable operator Luke Landon off the line. But while mortal authorities want him to stand down, the gods aren't done with him yet.

Pressed into a secret war between infernal and divine powers, Landon is thrust into a new campaign. The elder gods are returning to do battle with the Unmaker—and they are choosing agents to carry out their will.

In Japan, a goddess has chosen a shrine maiden as her soldier. The shadowy Organization, the secret rulers of the world, have her in their sights. Without official sanction or backup, Landon and his allies must go rogue to save her.

Landon has always been prepared to lay down his life. But this time, he may just have to give up his immortal soul.


Second, a new author has joined forces with us, as the relentless Razörfist is publishing his first novel, an illustrated fantasy noir entitled The Long Moonlight. Preorders are now being taken for both the signed hardcover edition and the paperback at Arkhaven.

MENUVIA

A sparkling gem made rough stone, the seat of political power in the Kingdom of Vale. Revolt foments among the patrician class and open gang war looms on the horizon. As the Argentine Tower plots revolution, a lone thief with a past as dark as Menuvia itself picks the wrong lock and opens the wrong door. Shadows still cast in the dark of night, underneath THE LONG MOONLIGHT.

Featuring a series of original illustrations. Published by Dark Legion Books.

The signed hardcover edition also includes the ebook, which will be sent out when it is released.

Razörfist has even produced a video packed full of lore introducing the book.

A free year of Castalia Library

A generous Castalia Library subscriber has graciously offered to donate an annual Castalia Library subscription to a family that cannot afford the books. Since the subscription presently begins with Lives Vol. II by Plutarch and it would be a travesty to split up the two volumes with their matching spines, Castalia will also be donating a free copy of Lives Vol. I to the recipients.

We'd like the seven books to go to a homeschooling family that cannot afford the price of a Library subscription, so if you feel that your family would meet the requirements for this princely gift, please send me an email before noon on Sunday explaining why you believe your family would be the ideal beneficiaries of the Castalia Library Books 5 through 11, which will include both volumes of Lives, Summa Elvetica, Politics by Aristotle, and at least one volume of The Arts of War, as well as two other books yet to be determined.

After reviewing the emails, I will make the decision and announce the winner on Monday. Below is a copy of the cover of the Library edition of Lives Vol. I.

Unprecedented

In case you don't fully appreciate how fragile the global economy is, notice that the banks have rendered themselves almost entirely irrelevant now thanks to the tsunami of debt they have created:

The Bank of England indicated Thursday that it could cut interest rates below zero for the first time in its 326-year history as it tries to shore up a U.K. economic recovery that is facing the dual headwinds of the coronavirus and Brexit.

After unanimously deciding to maintain the bank's main interest rate at the record low of 0.1%, the nine-member rate-setting Monetary Policy Committee said it had discussed its “policy toolkit, and the effectiveness of negative policy rates in particular."

In minutes accompanying the decision, the rate-setters said a recent wave of virus infections has “the potential to weigh further on economic activity, albeit probably on a lesser scale than seen earlier in the year.”

Though the committee noted that recent economic data have been a “little stronger than expected” at its last meeting in early August, it said it is unclear what that says about the future “given the risks.”

One clear concern relates to whether Britain, like others in Europe, will reimpose broad restrictions on businesses and public life after the recent flare-up in virus infections across the region. Already social gatherings are being restricted and certain areas of the U.K. are seeing localized lockdowns.

The British economy suffered one of the deepest recessions in the world this year when many sectors were effectively mothballed to help contain the pandemic. Though it recouped some ground in the summer as lockdown restrictions were eased, the economy was still around 12% smaller at the end of July than it was in February, when the pandemic started in Europe.

Debt jubilee is the only way out. Debts that cannot be repaid will not be repaid. The key to the solution is to make sure that those who are responsible for this epic debacle are forced to bear the primary consequences and are prevented from attempting to recreate the situation.

The science behind LOL

Fake laughing utilized in a deprecatory manner is not just a reliable sign of gamma, but of the narcissism and heightened sensitivity that is typical of that socio-sexual class. AC explains, using Creepy Joe Biden's response to Paul Ryan as an example:

Note how Biden is always desperate to project himself as strong and fit, challenging people to push-up contests, and talking about taking people behind the bleachers and beating them up, or standing up to Corn-Pop. He has probably got a trigger in there about being weak and impotent, and unable to defend himself, probably rooted in being teased as a child about his stutter.

This leads to a further note on deflection-laughing – my narcissist did this. He would even laugh louder and with a higher pitch, as if he thought it was even funnier, when confronted with even more clear, devastating, more verifiable criticism. The purpose would initially appear to be to present a mien of seeing the criticism as so minor he was laughing at it. But he did it in the face of rather devastating criticisms, and the more devastating the criticism, the louder and higher pitched the laughing. He would quickly transition from that deflection-laugh to anger if you continued the attack while dismissing his laughter as if you didn’t notice it.

I do not think he was just deflecting, though. He was unusually sensitive to laughter himself, so he may have been trying to use it as a weapon to assault his opponent. On several occasions, when he approached a group that was laughing, he would ask, almost in a cautious, and paranoid fashion, “What are you all laughing at?” As he did, he would look strangely braced, as if he assumed there was an answer he would not like, rather than looking amused, and like he wanted to join in. It was as if he assumed they were all laughing about something about him as he approached, and it was bothering him. I assumed he was laughed at as a child when being picked on and tortured by other kids, and it became a potent amygdala trigger in him.

Biden may be the same thing, as a stutterer. Kids may have made fun of his stutter when he was a child, and other kids laughed, and it became an amygdala trigger. Projecting now as an adult, as rabbits seem wont to do, he thinks it will hurt others the way it hurts him, and he now tries to employ it as not just a deflection, but a weapon as well, to hurt Ryan....

It is crazy to picture these retards all sitting around together making the sounds of laughter, even though they are miserable, just to try and hurt each other, but I think that is what would happen if you corralled a bunch of them together. It is how different from us they are.

I've seen small groups of gammas doing just that, with two or three of them fake-laughing at the others in an attempt to take control of the situation. Their instinctive fear of genuine laughter directed at them is such that they try to weaponize it for use against others. This use of fake laughter as a psychological weapon is why they are always LOLing and LMAOing and ROTFLMFAOing on the Internet, much to the complete bewilderment of psychologically secure men possessing higher socio-sexual status.

Gammas hate the success of others because observing the existence of the successful makes them feel inferior, even if, like Joe Biden, they have achieved a considerable amount of success themselves. But for the insecure, success is primarily a relative metric. That's why gammas dedicate so much time and effort to completely pointless attempts to tear down those whose perceived success happens to trigger their amygdalas.

Chinese index predicts Trumpslide

A Chinese reader has sent me a translation of an article from a Chinese website that refers to a manufacturing index often used for predictive purposes on the basis of orders received for relevant physical goods.

The US election in November is getting closer, and the campaign situation is getting more and more confusing. Many international media and forecasting agencies have also speculated. After all, whoever is elected will affect the international current situation and the interests of the public and enterprises. So, which party's forecast is accurate? In the last US presidential election, American forecasters predicted that Hillary Clinton would be elected, but at the last minute, Trump, a dark horse, came from behind and made it to the presidential throne. However, at that time, China's Yiwu Index showed that Trump would be elected, and the result was exactly as predicted. So, who will predict this year's US presidential election accurately?

As the U.S. presidential election draws closer, whether the White House will change hands, and if transactions become one of the focuses of investors' most attention. A survey conducted by the US media CNBC in early September showed that most stock strategists expected the Democratic candidate Biden to win the presidential election. Among the 20 strategists surveyed, 14 believe that Biden will defeat the current President Trump, and 3 strategists expect Trump to win. One of them pointed out that the situation in the swing state of Florida will determine Trump's future. Of the 20 strategists, 19 are from the United States and 1 from the Asia-Pacific region.

On the whole, domestic and foreign media are not optimistic about Trump. However, in the eyes of Chinese Yiwu businessmen, the result of the US election has been settled. Trump will definitely win the US presidential election and be re-elected as president! Why Yiwu merchants say this is mainly because they hold a mysterious "Yiwu Index".

Yiwu Small Commodities Merchants are Counting Commodities

Yiwu Index is a very interesting concept. It is the abbreviation of "Yiwu·China Commodity Index", which mainly reflects the price and prosperity of Yiwu small commodities. Generally speaking, the higher the Yiwu index of a small commodity, the broader its market prospects. The Yiwu Index is now the fifth largest intelligence agency in the world, a rising star in the intelligence system, especially in light of the last US election as it accurately predicted the presidential election in advance.

Experts can analyze the trend of the international market through the changes in Yiwu order data, and make predictions on international events based on this. For example, the BLM movement broke out in the United States and people demonstrated for equal rights. At the same time, Yiwu also received a large number of orders for propaganda materials, which determined that this protest would not end in a short time. This was indeed the case. The United States is about to begin the general election campaign, in which candidates will inevitably need a large number of campaign items, and Yiwu, as the world's small commodity distribution center, can use the data displayed by orders as a basis for judging the situation.

In the eyes of small businesses in Yiwu, the results of mainstream American polling agencies are false, as only "orders will not be faked", because more orders for aid materials mean that the campaign team’s funds are richer and there are more supporters. For example, in the past few months, Yiwu merchant Li Qingxiang has received more than 100,000 orders for Trump’s support flags, support hats, and even support masks and face towels. However, Biden’s support flags have only sold few thousand copies. From this perspective, Trump's true approval rate may be much higher than Biden.

Although there is not much rigorous scientific basis for using the Yiwu Index to infer the results of the U.S. general election, Yiwu, as the world's largest distribution center for small commodities, tends to be reliable in election politics in Europe and the United States. In today's world, the Yiwu Index can indeed become a "barometer" of many political hot events.

Considering that the Trump campaign also sells a good deal of "Made in the USA" products, his relative level of support may be even bigger than the Yiwu Index suggests.

Don't talk to the media, part CXIV

 Clay Travis learns why you don't talk to the media, even if you own a media company yourself:

It’s important to note what is going on here.

1. The Washington Post published a dishonest and factually incorrect article about me.

2. When I published the actual transcript of their questions and my responses to those questions the paper changed an inaccurate quote and made a notation at the bottom of an online article that almost no one would see.

3. No one at the paper reached out to acknowledge they’d misquoted me or to apologize for their error.

4. These mistakes were made even though I told the paper I was recording our interview and would publish the transcript if their article took my quotes out of context or incorrectly quoted me.

5. The only reason any of you even know this error occurred — or about how dishonest and untrue the piece they wrote was — is because I own my own media company and can demonstrate all the dishonesty in their work by publishing a transcript and response on this site.

Put simply, the paper, which allegedly prides itself on journalistic accuracy, mischaracterized and misconstrued everything I said to them and even though they only used 94 words from me, they couldn’t even correctly quote what I said and publish it in their article.

What’s more, when they were caught publishing factually incorrect information, they made a quiet alteration and refused to even notify the person they wrote about, me, that they’d corrected the error.

If this happened in a relatively inconsequential article about me, how often does it happen in more consequential articles about people much more significant than me?

Well, I am appalled. I am aghast. Who would ever have anticipated that the media would utilize an interview for a hit piece? Notice that the reporter interviewed him for more than an hour. At 28 single-space pages, the transcript probably amounted to over 7,500 words, most of which would have been his. And from all that, they used 94 of his own words in the subsequent hit piece that proved to be factually inaccurate.

Smart Boys, please notice that Travis followed your very clever advice to tell the reporter that he was recording the interview, as well as the fact that doing so made absolutely no difference at all even though his microphone at Outkick is a lot closer to the size of the Washington Post's than yours or mine. 

Don't. Talk. To. The. Media.

But if you want to show everyone how very important you are, just tell the reporter to feel free to email you the questions, then post them on your site, unanswered or not as you prefer, without emailing them back. They will quickly learn to stop contacting you.

Pedophists in the evangelical church

It's not as if it wasn't obvious that Satan has invaded the evangelical churches too:

Last month, Seth Brown, the executive editor of the Biblical Recorder, a Southern Baptist newspaper in Cary, N.C., delivered a stark warning to Christians. He had become increasingly concerned about the posts some of his fellow Southern Baptists were sharing on Facebook. “If you start clicking through, it doesn’t take long to find out some of this is coming from accounts that are QAnon,” Mr. Brown told me, referring to the viral conspiracy theory that claims a cabal of left-wing, satanic pedophiles is secretly plotting a coup against President Trump.

Mr. Brown, an evangelical who has served as a volunteer pastor himself, knows all too well that pastors have little time to tumble into an online labyrinth of convoluted Q theories. So he wrote an explainer on QAnon’s ever-evolving machinations, cautioning readers that as Christians, they must “reject the movement’s fanatical and dangerous messages.”  

Many QAnon posts and merchandise feature a Bible verse that is popular among white evangelicals, 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

In the evangelical world, this verse means that God will heal America of abortion and human trafficking, which is often described as “modern-day slavery.” In the QAnon world, it means God will free America of the satanic denizens of the “deep state” who are running a global child sex trafficking ring.

Nothing is more dangerous to the Satan-worshipping pedophist than the message that there are people who accepted the Devil's offer to rule the world if only they would bow down to him. Unless, of course, it is the message that the Bible is literally true and the Christian perspective on good and evil is correct.

It isn't so much fascinating as it is informative to observe how they don't preach against actual sin or observable evil, but they don't hesitate to preach against the truth.

PEDOPHIST

noun

An individual who, while not necessarily attracted to children or being a practicing pedophile himself, is nevertheless guilty of systemic and/or unconscious pedophilia by virtue of his support for, or defense of, individuals, organizations, and institutions that advocate, normalize, or engage in activities involving pedophilia, child porn, sex-trafficking minors, or political efforts to lower the legal age-of-consent.

USAGE: Ben Shapiro is clearly a pedophist given his public defense of the movie Cuties.

Trumpslide 90 percent

 The most reliable model in US presidential politics is showing a near-certain TRUMPSLIDE:

A professor of political science whose controversial election model has correctly called five of the last six U.S. presidential elections says President Trump will win reelection in 2020 in a "landslide." 

Helmut Norpoth, who teaches at Stony Brook University, is giving Trump "a 90-percent chance of being re-elected in a landslide," the Long Island, N.Y., school said in a recent press release. 

Norpoth's "Primary Model" has correctly predicted nearly every presidential election since 1996, missing only George Bush's 2000 victory over Al Gore. When the model is "applied to previous elections," Stonybrook said, it "correctly predicts an impressive 25 of the last 27."

Take into account the BLM riots and the observable fact that Creepy Joe Biden suffers from dementia, and the percentage chances of a Trumpslide rise to 300 percent and counting.

About those "smart" hard-working immigrants

Immigrants to the USA are never as intelligent as they try to present themselves. They just tend to be far more adroit, and work much harder, at cheating than Northern Europeans, particularly than those of British descent.

College Board, the academic giant that administers the SAT, served as a "key partner" for the Chinese government for nearly two decades, helping it establish controversial Confucius Institute programs across the U.S. K-12 system, according to a new report.

Hanban, the Chinese government agency responsible for administering the Confucius Institute, has worked with the College Board for years to place government-approved Chinese teachers in American high schools across the country, according to a new report by the National Association of Scholars. The initiative has allowed Chinese teachers to teach Mandarin to tens of thousands of students. The College Board has also helped Hanban set up more than a dozen Confucius Institute classrooms, placing an organ of Chinese propaganda in the heart of some public school systems.

The report sheds light on the Chinese government's vigorous attempt to penetrate the K-12 system, mirroring its infiltration of college campuses through the Confucius Institute. Rachelle Peterson, an NAS scholar responsible for the report, said the partnership raises questions about whether it is appropriate for such a trusted American institution to lend its support for Chinese influence-peddling efforts targeting the country's youngest people.

"The College Board's relationship with the Hanban appears to be unique—it is so deeply wedded to the Chinese government," she said. "China has been especially aggressive in seeking Western partners who can lend to the Chinese government a veneer of credibility and respectability, and the College Board has received those offers with open arms."

The Jews historically tested low in comparison with Europeans until they managed to get control of the universities. As I have conclusively proved, their much-vaunted "115 IQs" are not only a pure and self-serving myth, but are statistically impossible unless Israeli Jews have IQs comparable to US Blacks. I would not be even remotely surprised if it turns out that the spectacular Asian performance on the SATs in recent years was, in part, the result of widespread corruption of the College Board.

Let's not even get started on the complete corruption of Indian test-taking, in which it is common for the smart one of the extended family to take the tests on behalf of all of his brothers and cousins. This clannish behavior even extends to job interviews, where the employee who shows up for work is not the same individual who interviewed for the job.

This really isn't that hard. The fact that no other cultures have inherited the British tradition of "good sport" and "fair play" necessarily means that most of them, especially the more ruthless and self-serving, aren't going to even hesitate to cheat and misrepresent themselves in a broad variety of ways if they believe that will help their people get ahead. Immigrants from those cultures may or may not work hard, but one of the things at which they work the hardest is cheating.
