The new power pyramid

I don't put a lot of credence in Sorcha Faal's dramatic reports, but this analysis of the transformation from a global monopower to a tripartite system in which China plays the leading role strikes me as highly credible:

American efforts to undermine Russia-China partnership are doomed to fail because Washington doesn't understand Moscow’s concerns.

The US is increasingly worried that Russia and China are forging a strong new strategic partnership. With Moscow and Beijing aligning their foreign policy stances, the relationship now seems to be an alliance in all but name.

It was initially expected that the Russian-Chinese partnership would run aground over Beijing’s economic ambitions in Central Asia. China is evidently the more powerful economy in the partnership with Russia, and those kinds of asymmetries create certain limitations.

Moscow accepts Chinese leadership but rejects Chinese dominance.

Thus, if China chooses the “first among equals” principle, the partnership will prove to be durable and Moscow can make its peace with playing second fiddle in economic affairs to the world’s most populous nation.

To date, China has not tried to make use of those asymmetries with Russia.

Unlike Washington’s efforts to peel Russia away from its neighbours in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Beijing has avoided these kinds of schemes and instead worked towards accommodating Russian strategic interests.

Simply put, it is not in China’s interest to abandon its “first among equals” position in favour of unipolar ambitions. Russia is an indispensable partner for China to establish an economic leadership position in the Greater Eurasian region.

In a multipolar world, Moscow can adopt a swing power position and pivot to other centres of power if Beijing starts aspiring to move beyond leadership, in order to try and dominate.

The US domination of Europe is officially over. Despite its best efforts, the US could not convince Europeans to stop the Nord Stream natural gas pipeline from Russia to Germany. And those who have read Corporate Cancer will understand the significance of the fact that one of the leading sponsors of Euro 2020, whose TV ads are running frequently before the matches, is Alipay.

If Russia is content to play second fiddle to China - and there is every sign that it is, due to the way the USA has waged economic war on Russia over the last decade - the USA will not only lose its premier global position, but soon find itself demoted to the number three world power when it loses its Western European economic force multiplier. This is good news, as it will give actual Americans a better chance to take back control in their own country.

They should all be fired

Rumors abound that DC is headed for an epic housecleaning of the Augean Stables variety:

One of the first things on David Zaslav’s to-do list as the CEO of newly-formed conglomerate Warner Bros. Discovery will surely be to streamline the entire operation, because as things stand the corporate structure could generously be described as shambolic.

As much as many fans would love for him to kick open the doors, boot out the old guard and restore the SnyderVerse, that’s hardly going to be high on his immediate agenda, but we’ll use the DCEU‘s setup as an example, with a recent Reddit leak as the jumping-off point. We should point out that the veracity of the claim is entirely up for debate, with an “insider” post claiming that Discovery want to fire everyone involved with the shared superhero universe.

Obviously, that’s an incredibly sweeping generalization that only reinforces our point about the jumbled hierarchy. If Discovery were to get rid of everyone with a vested stake in the DCEU, then that extends to DC Films president Walter Hamada, WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar, HBO Max Chief Content Officer Casey Bloys, WarnerMedia Studios CEO Ann Sarnoff and Warner Bros. Picture Group chairman Toby Emmerich.

Heading further down the ladder to join even more of the DCEU dots, DC Comics, Inc. is a subsidiary of DC Entertainment, which is part of Warner Bros. Global Brands and Experiences, itself part of the Studio & Networks umbrella, under the control of the aforementioned Picture Group, so a whole lot of heads would have to roll were Discovery planning to eliminate anyone who’s got even the slightest bit of skin in the game when it comes to crafting one of the DCEU‘s big budget superhero blockbusters from the ground up.

The only thing that would actually be surprising about Warner-Discovery going Hercules on DC is that it would mark the first time in decades that anyone had done anything sensible there. After all, based on past experience, they'll hire a transvestite in a wheelchair and put Zer in charge of the entire operation.

Never trust the science

It's hard to "trust the science" when the science goes into hiding as soon as it becomes obvious they were completely and utterly wrong. And by "science", of course, I mean "scientistry".
The editor of respected medical journal The Lancet has refused to reveal if he still supports a controversial letter debunking claims that COVID-19 started in a Chinese laboratory.

The letter was published in The Lancet last February and was signed by 27 eminent public health experts who described speculation about the origins of the virus from a Wuhan laboratory as ‘rumours’ and ‘misinformation.’

When MailOnline contacted The Lancet’s editor, Dr Richard Horton about the decision to publish and support the letter, both he and his office declined to comment.

It's informative to see how scientists are perfectly happy to issue authoritative pronouncements right up until the moment that the facts actually begin to arrive. Then they clam up and go into hiding.

Never, ever, "trust the science". Because scientists are corrupt. Science is just another word for engineering that doesn't work.

AI WARS Episode 7: The War Room

SWAN KNIGHT SAGA Episode 7: To Awe and Terrify

An indictment of the Boomers

Peter Hitchens reviews Boomers: The Men and Women Who Promised Freedom and Delivered Disaster, a book written in the style of the highly influential Eminent Victorians:

While not quite impaling (among others) Steve Jobs, Camille Paglia, Al Sharpton, and Sonia Sotomayor, she deals brief, eviscerating sideswipes at the ideas and follies that brought such people into being and sustain them now. For this reviewer, a partially reformed 1960s bohemian, Bolshevik, and general scapegrace, these sideswipes were pure joy, the sort that make me cry out with recognition, or pound the arm of my chair. I say “partially reformed” because the things once inside me that the 1960s broke remain forever broken. I cannot be what I would have been if this had not happened, and I am not at all sure I would want to be. My main use to civilization, as a resister and critic of these things, comes from knowing who and what is now my enemy, in a way that very few conservatives do. It is a skill I largely retain, which is why I think that “Sex, Drugs and Rock n’ Roll” is a much clearer statement of the revolutionary program than “Workers of all Lands, Unite!”

So I saw repeated flashes in this volume of another book I very much hope Andrews will write, a lament for the great loss we have all suffered and which cannot possibly be repaired until we admit it, if then. Such a book will be so sad that it will make the sound of bagpipes played after a funeral on a windy hillside sound cheerful. But it has to come from someone at the beginning of life, not from some gnarled survivor of the lost world before the revolutions. Her opening chapter, a general segment on Boomers rather than on any individual, is the best part. Here is perhaps the most poignant passage in the book:

As a woman, if I had been born in another century, my schooling might well have stopped at age twelve. On the other hand, in this age I attended some of the best schools in the world until I was twenty-one and still didn’t receive an education those benighted eras would have considered standard. Is this necessarily an improvement?

Andrews cannily observes another often overlooked convulsion in thought: “The most glaring objective consequence of the boomers’ embrace of mass culture has been the death of both folk culture and high culture. Earlier generations felt obliged to graduate from the good-time music of their youth to opera and classical, upon reaching a certain age. Not the boomers.” I had never seen anyone make this point before. Yet it was exactly my decision to graduate in this way that opened a tiny gap between me and my contemporaries, which has widened over fifty years into an immense gulf. I am glad to have even a poor and sketchy knowledge of a part of the musical classics, but I think what I gave up is even more important than what I gained. For in abandoning it I learned how not to conform, and how not to care when found out. And I also ceased to hear that incessant pied piper, with his false promises of untold joys to come if I would just follow the others.

This brings us back to the destruction of formal education, the acquisition of defined knowledge based upon authority. I was caught in the middle of this change and am cursed and blessed with a constant painful knowledge of what I have lost. But those who came very soon after me do not even have that. They live unaware of it, in a fog of unknowing. It was this incredibly rapid removal of all landmarks, signposts, objective measures and maps which left us where we are now, lost boys and girls trying to invent our own ideas of the good, condemned to repeat every stupid mistake in human history, which really defines our age. Yet in the world of the boomers, the uneducated think they are educated. As Kingsley Amis long ago pointed out, we are at a party where the wine tastes like kerosene, the canapés are stale, the music is badly played on inferior instruments, the conversation is lumpish and dull, the clothes ill-fitting—but nobody cares because nobody has experienced anything different or knows that it could be any better.

The histories of the wicked g-g-generation are already being written, and the general tone of the verdict is already clear. They will whine and snark until they completely f-f-fade away, but it will all be in vain.

If I ever write a book on the Boomer g-g-generation, I don't think I'd focus on the famous individuals as archtypical examples of the whole. While the approach is informative and can unquestionably be very effective from the rhetorical perspective, which is why even serious historians like Paul Johnson have utilized it, I tend to view it as an unnecessary distraction from the more significant points at hand.

And in his criticism of the book, Hitchens explains why it is so important to indict and prosecute the Boomers in the court of intellectual history, contra the incessant complaints from the guilty parties. There are few things more tedious than Boomers crying about the younger generations damning them for their damnable choices, behavior, and social mores, especially doing so is a vital part of convincing those younger generations to reject the Boomers' collective path toward societal and civilizational suicide.

Any proper discussion of the cultural and moral disaster of our age cannot really concentrate on that age and those who grew out of it. That is just a tour of the ruins, without an explanation of why they are ruins. It needs to look a little further down, into the minds of those who inherited an ordered, free civilization and chose to throw it away. This is the mystery and tragedy of our time, and until we can solve it, it will go on forever, and perhaps be repeated in civilizations to come.

I think we all know

 Who the prime suspect is:

A blatant act of height supremacy sailed over the smog-polluted skies of Los Angeles when an ominous message was found hovering over the city of West Hollywood. The message read: “Joe Rogan is literally 5-foot-3.” Currently there are no reports indicating who was behind the message in the sky.

I'm not saying he got the vaxx

 But I've seen hundreds of soccer matches, and I've never seen any player, at any level, simply face-plant like the Danish player in the Denmark-Finland match today:

Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen, who collapsed during the first half of the game against Finland in the Euro 2020 on Saturday, is stable in the hospital.

Danish FA confirmed Eriksen was "awake" and is being further examined at Rigshospitalet, a hospital in Copenhagen.

Around the 43rd minute, Eriksen had played a short pass when he fell face-forward onto the ground and was unconscious.

Spectators inside the stadium in Copenhagen went silent as players from both Denmark and Finland stood around Eriksen as CPR was administered. Eriksen received chest compressions for about 10 minutes after his collapse on the field.

Obviously, everyone hopes the young man is all right. And perhaps it was just an unfortunate coincidence. But let's just say it would not be a massive surprise to learn he had been vaccinated. 


UPDATE: If it was the vaxx, this could have some very serious long-term implications for Serie A and other sports in Italy:

Dr Scott Murray, a leading NHS consultant cardiologist specialising in prevention of heart problems, claims Italy pride themselves on their record of preventing cardiac arrests in football - so the Danish player's problems will likely spell the end of his time in Serie A.

He told the MailOnline: 'It probably is (the end of his career) for him. The Italians stop people participating in sport if they are found to have a significant cardiac abnormality, it's in law.

'They've been doing that for a long time, beyond 20 years and they've reduced the death rates from cardiac arrests in sport from beyond 3 per cent down to below one per cent.'

Mailvox: the beatings will continue

As apparently some of them have proved salutory:

After following your advise on graduating Gamma, namely, shut up, work, and speak the truth. I am making huge strides in social settings.

The alpha is giving me more responsibility and respect, and girls are not repulsed.

I just want to say, without your constant Gamma beating, which are awesome course correction points, I would not have gotten this far this fast imo.

I am still working at it, always will.

Oh and ah, tell those boomers who has done next to nothing to go away.

Inspiration and relentless truth speaking by the capable is how many of us climbs out of the hell they left us with.

Conquering one's instinctive behavioral patterns is always difficult. They will always be there to be reverted to in times of stress, defeat, and failure. But they can be suppressed and surmounted with sufficient effort. Persistence is the key. Even when you slip - and you will - don't spend the next six weeks in denial, rationalization, and self-justification. 

Just admit the error, dust yourself off, and force yourself to start treading the right track again.

Silicon Valley belatedly recognizes the cancer

But instead of taking action to excise it, they're looking for a "third-way" that only guarantees failure.

In Silicon Valley, 17 years later, another kind of revolution is taking shape. A handful of founders and CEOs—Brian Armstrong of Coinbase, Jason Fried of Basecamp, Shopify’s Tobias Lütke, Medium’s Ev Williams—have said the unsayable. In the face of shop-floor social-justice activism, they’ve decided, business owners should resolve to stick to business.

No hashtag coders. No message-board threads about anti-racism or neo-pronouns. No open letters meant to get someone fired for a decade-old tweet. No politics. As Armstrong put it in his famous (or infamous) September 27th, 2020 blog post, business should be “mission focused.” A software developer explained that the conciliatory approach has become too costly: “The Slack shit, the company-wide emails, it definitely spills out into real life, and it’s a huge productivity drag.”

In October, a pseudonymous group inspired by Coinbase’s Brian Armstrong came together under the banner “Mission Protocol,” with the aim of getting other companies to start “putting aside activities and conversations” outside the scope of their professional missions. (“Mission focus doesn’t mean being apolitical,” they note. “It means being political about the mission. This mission is what you came together to accomplish, and this mission is what you’re fighting for in your work on the project.”) Paul Graham, a famed venture capitalist and “hacker philosopher,” tweeted his support to 1.3 million followers. Melia Russell, who covers the startup beat for Business Insider, noted that startups were jumping into the Mission Protocol threads “with a hell yes.”

Some founders, venture capitalists, and angel investors are now refusing to speak with legacy-media journalists who infuse their reporting with a social-justice slant. “What’s the point [of talking to reporters]?” a developer said. “They hate us, and we think they know nothing about the way the world works outside their woke, east-coast bubble.” Instead, mission-focused players are embracing alternatives such as Clubhouse and Substack. A software developer, Slava Akhmechet, is building a social-media platform (now in its beta phase) that grants influencers anonymity, with an eye toward encouraging the kind of candid conversation that is mostly verboten on, say, Twitter or Instagram. And then there’s the promise of blockchain—still in its infancy—and “decentralized media,” as Balaji Srinivasan, Coinbase’s former chief technology officer, calls it.

This Silicon Valley movement overlaps with a growing cadre of politically diverse writers and podcasters—such as Glenn Greenwald, James Poulos, Alex Kaschuta, and Aimee Terese—collectively creating an opening for a more incisive, wider-ranging conversation about technology, politics, and America itself. Default Friend, an After the Orgy podcast co-host and pseudonymous Substacker whose newsletter focuses on the Bay Area, says “this new group is like, ‘Okay, the wokeness thing definitely isn’t right. There must be some third way.’ They’re agreed on what they oppose.”

Between President Trump's failure to successfully defeat the Deep State and Silicon Valley's unwillingness to cut out the corporate cancer, it should be obvious to the intelligent observer that half-measures are not enough. You can't negotiate with SJWs. You can't lecture them. You can't wag your finger and issue dire warnings.

If you're not going to act, and act decisively, you're simply reducing the rate at which you lose.

SEASONS Episode 7: Parallels

CHUCK DIXON PRESENTS: COMEDY Episode 7: The Machine-Gun Artist

And, as we get closer to launching the Midnight's War crowdfund, here is a little reminder that the Legend and I haven't even begun to reveal the extent of the sheer awesomeness of what is rapidly becoming Arkhaven's leading series. For example: vampire special forces!
They don't go down easy, and what's more, they usually don't stay down. Of course, they are limited to nighttime operations.



Sanctions cut both ways

China calls the trade bluff of the neo-liberal world order:
There should be little doubt that the timing is intentional: China on Thursday passed its sweeping new law to 'safeguard' Chinese businesses and entities from Western and especially US sanctions, just hours ahead of President Joe Biden sitting down with G-7 leaders in Cornwall to argue for a common stance on curtailing China's influence. AFP observes: "China's quick rollout of a law against foreign sanctions has left European and American companies shocked and facing 'irreconcilable' compliance issues, two top business groups said Friday, despite Beijing saying the move would unlikely impact investment."

The Anti-Foreign Sanctions Law, as we described earlier, is designed shield Chinese entities and institutions from "the unilateral and discriminatory measures imposed by foreign countries" and ultimately the "long arm jurisdiction" of the United States.  

It effectively enables the Chinese government to sanction all who comply with US/EU sanctions by drawing a bright red line, forcing entities to choose whether to comply to Washington's side or Beijing's side. Upon its introduction early this week in the National People's Congress there were few details given, other than vowing that "if Chinese entities are hit with unjustified sanctions, the proposed law is supposed to crystallize actionable countermeasures against the foreign governments and institutions…expecting the legal effort to make up for losses that Chinese entities would suffer."

With the law's passage, details have been revealed as follows:

Countermeasures in the Chinese law include "refusal to issue visas, denial of entry, deportation... and sealing, seizing, and freezing property of individuals or businesses that adhere to foreign sanctions against Chinese businesses or officials," according to the text published by the standing committee of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature.

Thus it "answers" current US tactics in a serious escalation: whereas Washington currently often seeks to punish third party entities or countries for direct or even indirect dealings with a sanctioned regime (the cases of Venezuela and Iran are clear examples, or even European companies which worked on the Russia-to-Germany Nord Stream 2 pipeline), Beijing has now given itself the 'legal authority' to do the same. 

This is a very smart and timely move by the Chinese government, and counteracts the US ability to put pressure on foreign firms and governments. Comply with a US-imposed sanction and you're locked out of China.

What part of "unrestricted" is hard to understand? It wouldn't surprise me if China expands this law to include sanctions against other nations as well, which would go a long way toward convincing countries that normally comply with US sanctions to ignore them.

Avanti Azzurri

Total domination of Turkey by Italy in the first game of the Euros. It was 3-0 and they could have easily scored one or two more. Mancini's team is fast, aggressive, and really good on the ball. That's the group won already, because neither Wales nor Switzerland is going to score 3 goals in the group stage, let alone one game.

Why the CDC is worried

AC explains the reason for the CDC's sudden interest in the observed link between the mRNA not-vaxxes and heart inflammation:

The reason CDC is beginning to panic is that in perfectly normal people, even without any vaccine, for unknown reasons, the immune system just begins attacking the heart, and inflammation is noted as a predictor of the course of the disease, and this leads to heart failure. When the immune system goes on the attack, it creates inflammation, and as any weightlifter who has gotten the flu will tell you, muscles don’t grow, and can atrophy quite a bit, when inflammatory signals show up on the scene, because those signals shut off all muscle growth. It is the way the body is designed. Under an inflammatory stress the body shifts modes and puts all energy into the immune fight, and does not store anything away on building the body or increasing reserve energy stores. Everything goes into the immune fight, and reserves are even liberated and thrown into it as well. And the heart is just one big muscle, so introduce inflammation, and all growth and tissue regeneration is shut off biochemically, and then the muscle just wastes away over time, until the heart muscle cannot carry the load it has to carry to pump blood and keep you alive. It has long been known people with heart failure have somehow triggered heart inflammation that does not go away, and the degree of inflammation determines how fast it will progress. 

And now these geniuses have done what I warned about – they injected mRNA into deltoid muscle cells, so muscle cells would present the antigen right alongside the cell surface proteins common to muscle cells. The immune systems are learning both the antigen, and the receptors common on the outside of muscle cells are “enemy” because they are presented together on the cell surface in the shoulder, instead of the antigen being isolated by itself in a slow-release oil carrier outside the cells, injected between the muscle fibers. Even worse, after a set time the vaccine is supposed to stop producing the antigen, and after a year or three your immune response to the antigen is blunted, or even gone. But the heart and other muscles will keep producing those muscle cell surface receptors, in essence producing a constant booster vaccine to keep the inflammation up. There are mechanisms in the body to curb auto-immunity, but they fail in a lot of people with heart failure. And though the top story is about a few kids who presented acutely, heart failure begins more slowly, and if there are acute cases, there may be subacute cases which will progress into heart failure over time. So CDC has no idea what any of this means, or what is to come, even if they would scoff in public at the assertion. But they will hold an emergency meeting, not for the acute cases, but for what may not have been seen yet, but which is cooking away regardless.

Now there is a very real possibility we are going to see some percentage of the vaccinated who will need heart transplants in the next ten to thirty years. It could be a hundredth percent, it could be two percent, it could be twenty or more percent after thirty years, if the inflammation doesn’t go away (and nobody knows if it will). But when 70% of the population has gotten the jab, whatever way, it could be a fuckload of people needing new hearts, and there would not be enough hearts out there, so many of them would die. CDC is wondering whether they just gave a chunk of the population heart failure, and if so, how many.

I anticipate the CDC will try to come up with some other explanation for the sudden increase in heart failure, particularly among the younger population that shouldn't be experiencing it. Presumably, they'll try to blame it on obesity, or racism, or possibly climate change. 

Already the not-vaxx has killed 77 percent of the total covid-19 deaths in Iceland. So, it may not take very long for the "cure" to amass a bigger body count than the "disease".

Toobin back on TV

It's clear that the media executives believe that if there is one thing the US public simply cannot do without, it is advice from Jews who can't keep their fat little hands off their own genitals:
Eight months after showing his family jewels to his work family, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin returned to television today. For those who don’t remember, or choose to forget, last fall Toobin exposed himself to co-workers from New Yorker magazine while on a Zoom call.

October’s Zoom incident reportedly took place while the 2020 presidential election was being discussed amongst his New Yorker colleagues. Toobin wasn’t alone in his excitement for the election. Approximately 160 million Americans voted, though they expressed their excitement in more prudish ways.

At the time, Toobin had been working for both New Yorker magazine and CNN where he regularly appeared as a legal analyst. Following the unprompted and unwanted October peep show, New Yorker magazine fired the 61-year-old and CNN suspended him until Thursday.

What. The. Actual....

It's rather fascinating to contemplate the bizarre reality in which these CNN executives are dwelling. Who, exactly, has even the slightest desire to hear one single thing from Jeffrey "Dude, Turn OFF Your Webcam" Toobin? What do they plan to follow this up with, a dating show hosted by Ghislaine Maxwell as soon as she finishes serving her time for sex trafficking underage girls?

Here's a concept: if you don't want the rest of the world to despise your people as a filthy collection of perverted freaks, you may wish to consider the option of not constantly pushing filthy, perverted freaks on everyone.

On the equal opportunity side, it's now clear why Philip Roth handpicked Blake Bailey to write his biography. There is no question that Bailey was truly able to get inside of Roth's head.

A celebrated biographer mired in an ongoing sex scandal has now been accused of sexually harassing four other women while working at a university.  

Blake Bailey, 57, was accused of pestering a colleague, two students, and a visiting author while working at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, around a decade ago.

Bailey - handpicked by the late acclaimed novelist Philip Roth to write a biography that has been critically lauded - allegedly groped colleague Bridget Anderson's crotch while naked in a hot tub with her during an April 2010 writers retreat for college staff.

An emergency meeting

The CDC is concerned about side effects of the not-vaxx:
CDC to hold an "emergency meeting" on rare but "higher-than-expected" reports of heart inflammation following jabs of the mRNA-based Pfizer and Moderna #COVID19 vaccines.

Translation: CDC to discuss how best to convince the public that "heart inflammation" is a minor and expected side effect of protecting yourself from something that is less likely to harm you than riding a bicycle.

The problem the CDC is trying to explain away is that the spike protein in the vaccine is actually more dangerous than the spike protein in the virus.

The spike protein, on its own, is almost entirely responsible for the damage to the cardiovascular system, if it gets into circulation. Indeed, if you inject the purified spike protein into the blood of research animals they get all kinds of damage to the cardiovascular system, and it can cross the blood-brain barrier and cause damage to the brain.

Ben Shapiro hates middle class America

The Littlest Chickenhawk has always hated America, Americans, and Western Civilization, he just didn't make it so obvious to everyone before now.

I see many people are enraged at Blackrock. Blackrock is buying homes from people willing to sell them. If you don't like what they're doing, target the loose governmental policy incentivizing this sort of investment.

Seriously, Blackrock isn't going to stop investing in single-family homes because you're mad on Twitter. But you could direct your energies toward stopping the Fed's insane monetary policy, which is driving down the cost of loans and creating a massive bubble.

If Blackrock is willing to take the risk of leveraging up to buy single-family housing at above-market prices, that their prerogative. So long as they own the downside risk. No bailouts. Ever.

And if you're mad at Blackrock and want to artificially prevent them from buying single-family homes, I'd like for you to explain to those who currently own the homes why you're taking money out of their pocket.

And just to underline what a moron the little monster is, note that his advice to Americans watching the elimination of the housing stock and the destruction of the middle class is not to oppose the guilty party, but to oppose the Federal Reserve, a private corporation massively more rich, powerful, and politically influential than Blackrock.

As Lauren Witzke explains: THIS is why Ben Shapiro is promoted on all platforms. Little Ben is the official damage-control spokesman for the wicked Globalist Oligarchy.

Once I understood that debt was the center of the modern economy, I wondered how long it would take for the favored borrowers to own literally everything. Apparently we've now entered the accelerationist phase, that will only be stopped by a) Satan's little servants owning everything, or b) revolution and mass deportations.

Of course, it always ends in (b), the only question is whether there is an (a) phase first.

Controlling the nukes

So, apparently the Unidentified are reported to be turning off US nukes while turning on the nukes of other countries.

That is one of the concerns we have from a national security perspective, that there does seem to be some sort of congruency or some sort of intersection between these UAP or UFO sightings and our nuclear technology with nuclear propulsion, nuclear power generation, or nuclear weapons systems. Furthermore, those same observations have been seen overseas in other countries. They too have had the same incidents. So that tells us this is a global issue.

Now in this country we’ve had incidents where these UAPs have interfered and actually brought offline our nuclear capabilities. And I think to some they would probably say, well, that’s a sign that whatever this is, is something that is peaceful. But in the same context, we also have data suggesting that in other countries these things have interfered with their nuclear technology and actually turned them on, put them online. So that is equally, for me, just as concerning. I think that there is certainly at this point enough data to demonstrate there is an interest in our nuclear technology, a potential to even interfere with that nuclear technology. And when you look at all these naval ships out there--let’s take the Nimitz battle carrier fleet for example--in some cases you’re talking about a nuclear footprint probably bigger than most cities. You have a nuclear-powered carrier with aircraft on board that--and then you have nuclear-powered destroyers. You have nuclear-powered submarines, some of those with nuclear weapons on board, or nuclear--certainly nuclear capabilities. I’ll just say that. So, I think--I think, yeah, it shouldn’t be a surprise that maybe there is an increased interest in our capabilities as it relates to our nuclear technology. And the Navy is certainly not immune to that.

Of course, if this all turns out to be yet another - and that's why we have to have a single global government - we'll know it's just the latest Satanic deception. Which is precisely what I assume it is, but let's try to have an open mind for the time being.

And turning off weapons systems should never be confused with peaceful intentions.

Service may be spotty

It's not so much that I had to spend a few hours at the hospital yesterday following a soccer practice - no worries, I'm fine - or the fact that I'm on some antibiotics as the fact that I was having a very strange, but rather aesthetically pleasing dream about driving a minitrain to a friend's house through the snow to the strains of Celtic music that make me question the wisdom of doing a lot of posting over the next day or two.

Who wraps their Christmas presents in blue wrapping paper with red-and-green tartan ribbons lined in gold? And what was the significance of the little mouse riding on the minitrain? Why were the presents in the very large medieval fireplace instead of under the tree? And how was I controlling the speed of the train when there were only two buttons that let me switch lanes to pass the cars in the tunnels?

I did score four goals after two weeks of being shut out, though, so it's all good. The full volley on the rebound from a teammate's shot was particularly nice.

Apparently the relentless television ads in Britain have failed to win over the non-attention whore part of the population:

WHEN 21-year-old Madison Sarah uploaded a new lifestyle vlog to YouTube from her bedroom in Manchester, she was hoping for comments about how pretty she looked.

Instead she was branded "a disgusting f**king w***e” and threatened.

Her crime? Dating musician boyfriend Paddy, who is black.

And she's not the only British woman to face such vile trolling.

In fact a Sun Online investigation has found an alarming rise in racist abuse, aimed at relationships between white women and black men.

These disgusting trolls have dubbed themselves the coal patrol because they are trying to stamp out "coal burners" - their name for white women who date black men.

This is just one example of the price of buying into the media lies. These young women think they'll be praised and rewarded for their behavior, and instead find themselves being criticized and rejected, because the media presents a very false image of public opinion. And that's before the real toll of coal-burning is exacted.

It's telling that none of the women's groups that are supposedly so concerned about domestic violence ever address the fact that a coal-burner is far more likely to be beaten or murdered by her boyfriend than the average white woman or the average black woman. She's also more likely to be abandoned if she has a mixed-race child than a black woman with a black child is, despite the high percentage of black single mothers. So, it's not just conservatives, even women's groups would rather permit young women to be beaten to death than be accused of racism.

Ironically, it's only the "disgusting trolls" who are doing anything to prevent these stupid young women from blindly putting themselves into danger.

Despite obsessive media focus on blacks, in the USA more than twice as many mixed-race children are being born to White/Asian combinations than White/Black combinations. Which just goes to show, the primary purpose of the media is to misinform. Global populations being what they are, the US is more likely to become West China than North Africa, which may account for the Asian exclusion laws that preceded the nation's demographic suicide-by-Congress in 1965.

Wednesday PM Arktoons

MIDNIGHT'S WAR Episode 7: Vampire War

THE HAMMER OF FREEDOM Episode 8: Leave Him to Us

The panel below is a good example of the massive level of detail available on Arktoons standard resolution, which provides 81 percent more graphic detail than Webtoons or Tapas. Although it's interesting to note that Webtoons has recently introduced a new 1080-wide cover element, which tends to indicate that they are paying attention to the way in which Arkhaven is changing the digital comics game.

And we're just getting started. There is a lot of new content and new features that will be coming over time. Join the fun as a subscriber.

Nemesis

Another good reason to read the Junior Classics. It's hard to have much sympathy for the vaxxed who drop dead, especially when they have openly mocked those who refuse to follow their literally self-destructive example:

A 57-year-old husband, father and grandfather is dead, in what is fast becoming a trend of death after social media virtue signaling.

Mr. Ronald Babb, Sr. and his wife Rose, received the experimental Johnson & Johnson viral vector shot on April 12, according to his Facebook page. They received the shot at a Walmart on Genessee Street in Camilius, New York, about 14 miles west of Syracuse. Mr. Babb posted he and his wife’s “vaccine cards” on Facebook with a caption saying they are now waiting to “turn into robots.”

Mr. Babb died seven days after the shot, Monday April 19.

I'm wondering how long it will take before the media begins claiming radical white supremacist anti-vaccine extremists are sneaking around and murdering people who are known to have been vaccinated in order to make their anti-vaxx conspiracy theories more convincing. 

You wouldn't think it would be possible, but remember, we're dealing with a retarded segment of the public here who not only think that experimental genetic therapies are safe and tested vaccines, but genuinely believe the Boogaloo Boys are responsible for making BLM look bad.

Meanwhile, actual medical workers are choosing to risk their careers rather than risk their lives:

Nearly 200 staff members at a Houston-area hospital were suspended for not following a policy that requires employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Their suspensions followed a protest by dozens of workers Monday night against the policy.

The hospital, Houston Methodist, had told employees that they had to be vaccinated by Monday or face suspension. Last month, 117 Houston Methodist employees filed a lawsuit against their employer over the vaccine policy.

The Alpha weakness

The Alpha always thinks everything is about him. This is why Alphas are so easily manipulated by those who are not loyal to him or who have agendas requiring his neutralization.
Congratulations to the country of Nigeria, who just banned Twitter because they banned their President. More COUNTRIES should ban Twitter and Facebook for not allowing free and open speech – all voices should be heard. In the meantime, competitors will emerge and take hold. Who are they to dictate good and evil if they themselves are evil? Perhaps I should have done it while I was President. But Zuckerberg kept calling me and coming to the White House for dinner telling me how great I was.

The level of obtuseness revealed here borders on the embarrassing, but it is all-too-typical of the average Alpha. Who cares what the social media companies are actually doing, who cares about the strategic disadvantage in which you are being placed, who cares that your own followers are being silenced and economically ruined, what's really important is that the heads of the social media companies are ritually genuflecting and paying you your rightful due as the top of the social hierarchy. That's what really matters, right?

The one thing the Alpha truly cares about beyond everything else is recognition of his status. That's why they're always beating their chests and casting about for any possible challengers. So long as you publicly kiss the Alpha's ring, you can get away with just about anything you want without inspiring his opposition.

This is another area where being confused with an Alpha is advantageous to the Sigma. Whereas the Alpha is naturally inclined to preen and forgive all sorts of shenanigans so long as sufficient smoke is being blown up his backside, the Sigma is suspicious of anyone who pays him compliments, particularly those he knows to be less than entirely merited.

DEUS VULT Episode 7: Schemes of the Devil

ALT★HERO Episode 7: One Falls, Another Rises

I'm pleased to announce that we've got several new series underway, including one set in Selenoth that is being created in a new style that we're calling an "illustrated episode", which I suspect may turn out to be an extremely popular series format. But the new series that everyone is most anticipating is almost certainly DAY OF THE PILLOW, which will be a four-panel comic illustrated by Lacey Fairchild and set in the world of HYPERGAMOUSE.
A review from SG:
I like the latest episode of #AltHero. Was thinking its another cartoon comic where punches fly, and that’s that. But here, punches actually have weight & consequences.

One of the foundations that distinguished ALT★HERO from the start is non-continuity. We're not interested in writing stories where Batman catches the Joker again, only to let him go and commit more murder and mayhem in order to convince himself that he is the superior individual.

The criminalization of reality

Thanks to their Promethean rulers, neither the USA nor the UK are very far away from literally outlawing the idea that 2+2=4.
A mother-of-two law student investigated by university chiefs after saying 'women have vaginas' has won her disciplinary hearing, it has today been revealed.

Lisa Keogh, 29, was hauled before a disciplinary panel at the University of Abertay in Dundee after she made the comments during a seminar on transgender issues.

But after a two month probe, which took place as the mature student underwent her final year exams, the university has now dropped its case against her.

University chiefs cited a 'lack of evidence' behind the decision to drop the internal investigation.  

Today Ms Keogh hit out at the university for subjecting her to what she described as  a 'cruel witch hunt' due to her 'gender critical views'.

The university deny Ms Keogh was put through the disciplinary procedure because of her 'personal opinions'.

Notice that the internal investigation wasn't dropped because it is evil and stupid to punish people for making incontrovertibly true statements of fact, but for lack of evidence that she had made one. 

What they are doing is attempting to enforce the lie by enshrining it into law. But once you start forcing people to accept your lies as truth, whether they are "some women have penises" or "there was never a land called Palestine" or "all men are equal", you're already on the path to losing your indoor plumbing.

Internet outage

From Russia Today:

OUTAGE: USERS REPORT MAJOR SITES DOWN, INCLUDING AMAZON, GUARDIAN, NYT & REDDIT

I've noticed that Outkick and Sports Illustrated are also down. But Arktoons, SocialGalactic, Infogalactic, and Unauthorized are all running fine.

From The Daily Mail:

The problem, affecting customers worldwide, appears to be related to Amazon's Web Service (AWS) crashing, leaving people unable to connect to other websites. 

And that's one of the reasons why we run on our own metal, which is made possible by you subscribers.

Seeing intelligence

I have always said that one can literally see that a person is more intelligent than the norm by looking at their eyes. I wonder if that observation was based on subconsciously picking up on large pupil size:
A person’s intelligence and brain function correlates to the size of their pupils, a new eye-popping study by US researchers suggests. The study claims that the larger the pupil, the smarter its owner. Cognitive abilities like attention control, fluid intelligence and working memory capacity have been linked to baseline pupil size by researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology, who conducted several large-scale studies involving over 500 participants.

First, they calculated the average pupil size of each of the participants — aged between 18 and 35 years old — using a special tracking device with a camera linked to a computer. Normally, a constricted pupil — the black circular aperture in the center of the eye — is two to four millimeters in size, and fully dilates to up to eight millimeters. 

The participants were then offered a series of cognitive tests measuring their abilities to stay focused and control attention while being intentionally distracted, to reason through new problems and remember new information. The laboratory was kept dim in order for the pupils not to constrict in response to light. 

“We found that a larger baseline pupil size was correlated with greater fluid intelligence, attention control and, to a lesser degree, working memory capacity,” researchers concluded, with their findings published in the June issue of the Cognition international journal.

I tend to perceive intelligence in the eyes as an active awareness, or in some cases a liveliness, that doesn't necessarily translate to the person's expression, tone, or behavior. Not every intelligent person shows this, but I've never met anyone who did who didn't later prove to be intelligent. It might also explain why people instinctively avoid eye contact when they don't want to indicate that they are anyone out of the ordinary.
