Open Brainstorm tonight

Just a reminder that if you want to know what Brainstorm is like, you have a chance to see for yourself tonight. We'll be having an open Brainstorm about Infogalactic tonight at 7 PM Eastern. Rifleman and I will be talking about the latest additions to the project, what is currently in development, and what we plan to do next. You can register for it here.

Infogalactic's news was down this afternoon. I believe the error message was something about a back end error. It's back up now.

OT:

A shout out from the Instapundit:

"As somebody once pointed out, SJWs always lie. I’m glad he used all their names, so that they’ll show up in search engines."

It's OT, and probably may look like ass-kissing, but I must say:

Thank GOD for this blog! It's kept me sane for years now. Especially during the election.

A young trad Catholic commented about fighting leftists on Father Z's blog. He was immediately shouted down by baby boomer cuckservatives for "manners."

What's wrong with them? They will go to their graves, some of them 40 years from now or more, still thinking it's 1980.

That with whorefinder's constant demoralization on CH I had to come here and reread many posts, just to avoid being totally demoralized.
Just had to get that off my chest.

Appreciate the open invite, was kind of lost with some of the particulars discussed. That's okay, as it sounds like a lot of what's going on is a legitimate effort to even eschew the SJW-based frameworks of software out there.

One minor nit: you do realize Cerno's now publishing stuff to his Medium full time, yes? Last bit on D&P was the unedited 60 Min transcript and that was a month ago. Not that the older stuff isn't worth reviewing; just curious as to whether or not you'll be linking to where he is now.

He probably should buy more coffee.

Not surprising, though. Fr. Z's "recognize and resist" position is very much like cuckservatism. Both essentially say, "I see that those people are my enemy and want to destroy me, and I respect them and want to work with them." The cognitive dissonance required to hold such a position makes people cranky.

Whoa! Didn't expect another reader on here.
I agree totally. I'm happy to hear someone speak the truth on it.

WE,or my friends and I, use to constantly say, "Little neurotic dogs always bark in non-threat directions." So these people are beyond cranky, they are resentful. Their cowardly actions when directly facing the enemy, who wants to destroy them, creates a self-hating subconsciousness that barks at their own side through submission.

VD,

I listened in to a decent percent of the brainstorm last night, then got a call from someone who should be useful to those projects. He is a high level IT manager who is use to getting people to work together to solve all sorts of problems. He use to work for a very high level consulting company. He is also more Red Pilled then me.

i will try to get him to look into Brainstorm.

You'd be surprised how many of us there are. ;-)

Up until Bergoglio, Fr. Z was a wealth of insight with regards to matters within the Church, especially when he's both a convert AND did his formation in the belly of the beast in Rome (I think it was at the North American Pontifical College). Whether it's because he's got connections he doesn't want to offend in the Vatican or whatever, I've made WDTPRS pretty low on my list of must visits during the day. You know you messed up when a harder line site like Rorate Caeli unceremoniously drops you from their blog roll.

I think Steve Skojec and crew over at 1 Peter 5 do a much better job looking at Church matters, personally. I can only take Church Militant in small doses (I think if Voris found a benefactor that wasn't a hardline FSSP shill, as their entire cucked stance against the SSPX undermines their general thrust, along with the same tiptoeing around Jorge). Wanderer's good, and if Louie Verecchio could tone back the gloom and doom at AKACatholic, I'd give him a stronger rec, as well.

I guess my time trying to find the truth of the Catholic situation has made me just that much more amenable to the Alt-Right position, because it's becoming increasingly clear that there's nothing worth conserving anywhere in our lives, it seems. All these edifices need to be torn down, post haste. It's the only way we'll ever truly survive.

I missed it again.

This might be getting off-topic, so I'll try to be short: Up until Bergoglio, things seemed to be going the trads' way. They weren't really, but they seemed to be if you didn't look too closely. Many of us even convinced ourselves that Ratzinger was trying to roll back Vatican II and restore Tradition. Bergoglio's election left that in tatters. Bergoglio is also vindictive and mean, and he's already taken the Latin Mass away from some groups, so that could easily happen to Fr. Z. if he were too critical. At that point, he'd be forced to resolve the cognitive dissonance he's been avoiding for years. His whole deal is based on being able to have it both ways: be a Traditional Catholic, while paying empty respect to the Modernists. He doesn't want to be forced to choose.

Blogger SemiSpook37 April 27, 2017 10:40 AM  

@Cail

On this, we're in violent agreement. It also doesn't help matters that Bergoglio was formed and rose up the ranks within the Jesuits, the most MODERNIST out of all the orders. There's a reason the order was suppressed, and ol' Jorge is evidence of why it should be done again.

And a brain fart from my earlier post: I mentioned the wrong side of the Matt family. I meant the Remnant vice the Wanderer (since the latter is where Fr. Z had his start). Chris Ferrara is a great resource alongside Michael Matt.

Blogger Wynn Lloyd April 27, 2017 6:15 PM  

A good way to put it.

Blogger Wynn Lloyd April 27, 2017 6:19 PM  

You've summarized it very well.
Very clarifying in my case, just like Cail's analysis.
I'll check 1Peter 5.
It's a shame about Voris. I only knew him from his YouTube videos. I didn't know he attacked the SSPX.

Blogger Wynn Lloyd April 27, 2017 6:26 PM  

He's vindictive and mean to faithful Catholics. Not to atheists or others outside the Church. He seems to kiss their asses. That's amazing.

I really hope he's the last gasp of the spirit of Vatican II types. He's surefire proof the the reforms were an utter failure. He has no
Sense of doctrine. He doesn't even seem to think much at all about anything other than his image in the media.
I hate saying such about the pontiff but for confused and often failed Christians such as myself the lack of clarity and silliness coming out of the Vatican is demoralizing, and I don't even go to the Novus Ordo ever!

Blogger Wynn Lloyd April 27, 2017 6:29 PM  

Suppress them!

I teach at a Jesuit School.
I trolled these people ruthlessly on November 9th. All I had to do was walk around looking at my phone and smiling to trigger their misery lol.

Blogger Wynn Lloyd April 27, 2017 9:39 PM  

Yes!

I was trying to find a way to make it easier for me to use infogalactic. I use Chrome. One issue is that wikipedia links have so much more juice / higher page rank than infogalactic links that if I google for something I'm currently unlikely to see infogalactic links on the first page. However, I will see wikipedia links on the first page and now that I've installed this chrome "infosextant" extension if I click on the wikipedia link I'm redirected to infogalactic! Good stuff. This is a great extension.
