Trump denounces the press

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

“You are fake news”

Trump is able to take on the mass media because he has is own non state power base. He is the Batman’s Bruce Wayne.

But the elephant in the living room is Academia. He has small plans to take on Academia over global warming pseudo science and reluctance to subject vaccines to adequate safety testing, but the biggie is degree deflation, and we have not heard a word about that – yet. Any plans for degree deflation will burn everyone who has spent a fortune on inflated credentials and will be massively misrepresented as plans to deny education to the masses, so that is a tricky one.

The Wicked Flee

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

The wicked flee when no man pursueth.

I don’t want this blog to turn into all Trump all the time, but those liberal tears just taste so delicious.

Trump asks for the names and activities of those engaged in countering “violent extremism”.

And immediately government employees panic that Trump will engage in reprisals against those countering violent extremism and will undo all their good work in countering violent extremism.

Now why would they worry that Trump will undo their work in countering “violent extremism” – unless their idea of violent extremism is not a Muslim driving a truck into a crowd of Christians but rentacops maintaining order at Trump rallys, unless their idea of a violent extremist is not a member of the Muslim Brotherhood but the first person to stop cheering at a gay wedding?

Well guess what:

“One type of domestic extremism includes those who disdain others due to a person’s immutable characteristics, such as race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity and disability.”

So if you notice that women are markedly and strikingly less competent than men at men’s activities, such as work outside the house, and men are markedly less competent than women at women’s activities, like finding the car keys and taking care of small children and the very ill, then you are a violent extremist. The only possible reason that you could believe your lying eyes it that you hate women so much you are likely to attack and kill them.

By which standard, Muslims are only a very minor part of the very big extremist problem. Nothing but the constant vigilance of the Obama regime prevents blond blue eyed males from running amok and massacring people. Obviously we urgently need to register, and probably deport, white males.

left becomes the movement against Global Apartheidt

Sunday, December 11th, 2016

The issue used to be capitalism, now it is “global apartheid”. Our enemies believe that everyone in the world has an inherent human right to move to white countries to live on crime, welfare, and voting for less law enforcement and more welfare.

This will be demonstrated when Trump tries to close the borders. The Permanent Government will just flat in your face point blank defy him. If he closes the borders, he will have to do so by demonstrating that an air force commando outranks a supreme court justice.

As the capitalism versus socialism conflict assimilated all conflicts to itself during the early part of the twentieth century, “Global Apartheidt” versus “racism” is now assimilating all conflicts to itself. All politics become identity politics, all identity politics is becoming pro white or anti white, and all anti white politics becomes Muslim, part of the war of Islam on the west. Hence the State Department backing genocidal Sunni terrorists against moderate Muslim regimes like that of Syria.

They don’t realize that they plan to kill the golden goose.

They don’t realize that all the wealth of the world was created by white people originally and still today most of it, with the notable exception of East Asian economies, is created by white people. They think that wealth comes from magic dirt. Hence Obama telling us “You did not build that” in cheerful defiance of the obvious facts. The new emerging majority thinks that white wealth was just magically showered on whites like their EBT cards and obamaphones were magically showered on them. When they burn down a white owned shopping center, and it is not promptly replaced by shopping center run by black women, they figure that is white racism at work. “Why were blacks not given a shopping center the way whites were?” They think EBT cards and Obamaphones just pop out of the magic dirt.

Everyone graduated from Harvard, and everyone in the permanent government, believes that the wealth just sprang from magic dirt, and whites just grabbed more than their fair share, believes “You did not build that” If only those awful white males were not around to prevent wealth from showering on women and people of color. Because if you want to go to Harvard, you need to persuade Harvard that you do believe that.

Hence believe not necessity to allow whites to build stuff. Which belief system leads to killing the goose that lays the golden eggs. Factories and all that are supposedly evil. Are supposedly instruments of oppression. Hence the regulatory state that makes it impossible to build physical things in America unless your factory is grandfathered in. Everyone in the Harvard and the Permanent Government believes this, and if he does not believe it, keeps his beliefs a deep dark secret. They believe that when they shut down factories and farms and mines and stuff, they are being noble and good, are dripping with saintliness as they erase these horrid sins against Gaia, and anyone trying to keep them open is being sinful, greedy, and corrupt.

They think, everyone in Harvard thinks, everyone in the Permanent Government thinks, that the Golden Goose is keeping people poor by scarfing up all the wealth emerging spontaneously from the magic dirt, they do not realize we are paying for EBT cards and Obamaphones.

When Black Lives Matter burn down a supermarket whites build, Obama tells the owners “You did not build that”.

In the early part of the twentieth century, the left wanted the masses to seize the means of production. But with identity politics replacing class politics, all the stuff that whites do becomes equally evil, so now in the early part of the twenty first century the left wants to shut down the means of production. Everyone is supposedly going to live by swiping EBT cards and get their internet via Obamaphone. The left is now the party of rule by underclass, not the party of dictatorship of the proletariat.

The Daily Stormer reminds us that there is a secretive committee of big Jewish donors that has undue influence over the Democratic party, but the Democratic party will very shortly elect a Muslim terrorist who hates Jews as their leader. By “terrorist” I don’t mean that he personally will strap dynamite around himself and blow himself up in a Jewish synagogue, but that he will be part of an organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, that organizes people to blow themselves up. And the Jews will continue funding the Democrats even as part of these funds are used to strap explosives around suicide bombers to blow themselves up in synagogues. And they will congratulate themselves on having found a brown Bernie with which to sucker the white working class one more time. Until they import enough black African males that they get roasted on spits and eaten.

Jews will probably support the left all the way to the bitter end – as they supported Muslims during the crusades, but the logic of identity politics means that the left will not support Jews. Jews keep telling their brown allies that Jews are not really white, but this fails to have the desired effect. Jews found it a lot easier to lead an anticapitalist movement than an anti white movement.

The army tries to earn brownie points by opposing Muslim patriarchy and repression of homosexuality. General Mattis is a big offender here, pointing out that Afghans beat women, etc. It is like pointing out that Democrats are the real racists. Emancipating Afghan women does not gain the army any brownie points, nor do the rapes of the rapeugees lose the the rapeugees any brownie points. And the Muslim brotherhood can full on flat out openly oppose the emancipation of women, and still be leftists in good standing, indeed the very best of standing.

Hating whites males is the KKKrazy glue that holds the coalition of the fringes together, and the Muslim Brotherhood hates us more than anyone, so, since no friends to the right and no enemies to the left, the left loves the Muslim brotherhood and is busily importing an army of their fighters, even though the Muslim Brotherhood position on women, Jews, and homosexuals is umpteen light years outside the Overton Window. The Muslim Brotherhood is sliding into control of the left, the way communists slid into control in the thirties and forties, because they are the leftmost on the defining issue of our times. Moldbug, reading old books, said that America is a communist country. Pretty soon it is going to be a Muslim country.

What the alt right hopes for from Trump

Friday, November 18th, 2016

Trump has promised to build a wall, deport millions of illegals, and stop people who hate us from migrating here.

Well, that is pretty good, but what we really wish is for Trump to be King and high priest, and his son to be grand inquisitor.

That is a mighty tall order, but it would stand a mighty good chance of curing civilizational decay.

We need him to be King or Emperor, because democracy is against us. We don’t want women and blacks voting. Democracy always tempts politicians to enfranchise or import low information voters that can be bought cheaply, obamaphone voters. Thus in the end, democracy winds up as the government electing a new people

We need him to be god, or high priest, or archbishop, so that there is a clearly defined official doctrine that one can piously believe and thereby be an acceptably good person. At present your company is in violation of affirmative action law unless everyone believes in equality twice as much as everyone else, that woman are just as good as men except that they are better, and any underperformance is due to evil sexist thoughts emitted by males, that blacks are just as good as whites and any underperformance is due to evil racist thoughts emitted by whites. The required holy doctrines are set by activist judges and social justice warriors, and thus escalate endlessly. No piety is safe from being deemed racist next year.

We need a grand inquisitor to rid state and quasi state institutions (courts and universities) of demon worshipers, and anyone who claims to be holier than the King, to shut down the holiness competition whereby every professor, every social justice warrior, and every judge tries to be twice as holy as every other.

Of course Trump is not an alt rightist, despite what the left tells themselves. The alt right is just one of the factions of the Trump coalition, and far from being the largest or most influential, though the fact that the alt right is allowed any legitimacy at all horrifies and outrages the left.

But, though just one faction, and far from the largest, Trump has so far shown no inclination to succumb to the pressure to dump parts of the coalition that brought him to power. Many of us expected that he would, and did not much care so long as he builds the wall, but so far, all seems well. He is holding his coalition together. Trump is loyal to those that are loyal to him, and an enemy to his enemies. And if he sliced off one part of his coalition, leftists would demand even more strongly that he slice off another.

So what are our chances of getting what we want, in addition to the wall and the reduced influx of black military age Muslims screaming for infidel blood and white pussy? What are our chances of getting God Emperor Trump, a fixed and safely unchanging holiness doctrine, and an inquisition to make it stick?

I don’t care if the Holy Trumpian doctrine of the divine Trump says that blacks are angels, and leprechauns exist, provided that next year you don’t have to say they are even better than that.

I rather think we stand a small but significant chance. You will have heard that the Obama/Trump transition is chaos. It is.

The problem however is not with Trump, but with the presidency. The presidency is a worm’s nest. Trump wants to transition the permanent government to doing what he damn well tells them, the permanent government wants to transition the merely temporary government into being their public relations boy as usual. Hence the transition is going extremely badly, indeed it is scarcely going at all.

The permanent government is run by committees that supply or deny people who sit on committees status and power and future career opportunities.

Thus, run by consensus of the most holy synod, no one is responsible, and it is impossible to discover who allocated money or authority for what policy, and difficult to determine what the real policy actually being implemented actually is, since the actual on-the-ground policy is unlikely to correspond to its official description.

This architecture makes it difficult to determine who to fire. Perhaps Trump can save time and mental effort by firing entire committees at once.

This architecture is unfixable, no matter how many political commissars you insert, except by not having stuff run by committees – except by reorganizing the permanent government so that it is responsive to a single will, by having money, power, responsibility and authority flow though clear overt formal official hierarchical channels that appear on an organization chart as a top down tree. As King Charles the first said, “No Bishop, no King”, meaning if no Bishop, then no King.

One can readily foresee that Trump is going to find dealing with a very decentralized organization frustrating and exhausting. He will issue orders and they will sink into the labyrinthine morass without a trace.

Trump being Trump, I think he not only wants to take charge of the Permanent Government, but is likely to do so, which is a revolutionary act for which he will need revolutionaries. Expect the left to set fire to the Reichstag at a convenient moment.

And if we don’t get God Emperor Trump and his holy inquisition, we will say we did and watch the leftists go even crazier.

Recap on Global Warming

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

Some days are warmer, some are cooler. Some years are warmer, some are cooler. Some centuries are warmer, some are cooler.

Not only does climate vary, but the variability itself is subject to change. Ten degree swings over decade have happened, and when that happens once, usually happens ten or twenty times over the following millenia. Fortunately we have not had anything as bad as that in recent millenia, but during Roman times it was substantially warmer than today, and wheat grew in what is now desert, today’s deserts were the breadbasket of Europe, and during the little ice age, it was mighty cold, and the deserts were bigger.

The Hockey stick curve (which shows climate stable until industrialization) is just phony. The climategate files revealed that those proclaiming it showed no interest in whether it was true or false. Mann delegated the key work to minor grad students, told them what the data should show, and displayed absolutely no interest in how they tortured the data to get his predetermined result. This was obvious when it came out, and confirmed by the leak of climategate files. Mann himself did not know how the Hockey Stick curve was generated, in the sense that he failed to ask, and showed no interest in, the questions raised in the Harry_Read_Me.txt file, which discusses the manufacture of the corrupted and corrupting data used to weight the proxies, and also in that Harry, a low status menial, was tasked with recreating graphs already published, implying that Mann and company had no idea where those graphs came from or what they were based on, if anything.

Mann and company vaguely hoped and sort of believed that they curves that they published were somehow derived from observations, but they did not know, and showed no interest in, what observations, and how derived.

When the Hockey Stick Curve appeared it showed the classic marks of theocratic science.

Everyone used to believe, based on extensive evidence, that climate had been highly variable in the past. And then suddenly everyone in academia changed their belief, quietly forgetting that they used to believe something complete different, without asking for the evidence that supposedly supported their new belief.

Indeed, to ask the new experts how they knew their new facts about past climate was deemed an act of harassment. To ask, was to be anti scientific, since you were showing disrespect to official science. Every academic everywhere, with a handful of courageous exceptions that were swiftly brought into line, agreed with the new line, and declined to ask dangerous and subversive questions as to what data, what evidence, brought the new line about. How did one proceed from observations of fossil trees and glaciers to a conclusion very different to that which past observers of fossil trees and glaciers had concluded? No one would tell, and no one important would ask.

When the state officially recognizes science and scientists, this tends to make scientists into priests.

In the restoration, Charles the Second created the Royal Society to keep scientists on track, which was part of his purge of the priesthood. It is a pity he did not create an inquisition to continue the purges and keep the rest of the priesthood on track.

From the Restoration in 1660, to the end of World War II, the Royal society enforced the scientific method. If you wanted respect and esteem as a scientist, you had to tell us new and interesting things, and you had to show everyone how you knew these new and interesting things from what you saw with your eyes and touched with your hands.

After World War II, Harvard got the upper hand over the Royal Society, and you no longer have to show your work. Instead, your work must be approved by the most holy synod of mother church – in other words, must pass peer review behind closed doors. Peer Review is new. Attempts to root it in the past of science before World War II are artificial and contrived. Somehow we obtained almost all of science that matters before we had peer review, and since we have had peer review, things have started to go terribly wrong with science. Peer Review is science by social consensus, and Galileo told us that that does not work.

Global Warming is much the same religion as the Aztec state religion. Sacrifices must be made, or else the sun will not rise to tomorrow, and the priests can therefore pull strings, so that some people are sacrificed more, and others less, as with Chris Turner’s carbon indulgences.

It is not enough to stop the sacrifices though that is a damned good start. The priesthood itself must be purged, for as long as they have state power, they will continue to apply it against Trump.

The permanent government will always win over the temporary government unless purged, and the permanent state religion will always control the permanent government, unless a King places himself the head of that religion, and, armed with an inquisition, brings it into line. May Trump become God Emperor, or at least King and High Priest. And may his grand inquisitor purge Satanism from our political elite and lies and heresy such as Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming from our priesthood, with holy fire.

We need to suppress Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming as Castile suppressed the Old Gods of Mexico, and as the Romans suppressed Druidism, and for much the same reasons, and with much the same methods. Global Warming is not an example of science making a mistake. Science always makes mistakes, and advances because of them. Global Warming is an example of an evil priesthood and evil priests, pursuing evil goals by evil means. Scientific errors should not be punished, but evil religions need to be forcibly suppressed by centralized power and state violence, for evil religions propagate by centralized power and state violence, and thus can be suppressed by no other means.

Draining the swamp

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

Trump has promised to drain the swamp.

Then in his acceptance speech, he promised not to drain the swamp.

This is less worrying than it might seem, since when you purge powerful people, you don’t want them to see it coming.

From now till the start of the purge, he is going to be playing his cards very close to his chest. Any predictions made from his behavior between now and the purge will be incorrect, because his behavior between now and the purge will be deceptively moderate. The start of the purge will itself be deceptively moderate. And then he will keep on purging. How far he will go, nobody knows. I don’t know.

I would guess the purge starts in March at the earliest. First he has to get his key people into position. Then suddenly, wham, he gets his enemies out of position.

He has for many years been psychologically preparing the American people for massive firings of the permanent government, which firings the courts will deem illegal, but the public will wonder what the hell the courts are maundering about. These firings will happen when those he is about to fire are least expecting it, when they think they have gotten the upper hand over Trump. And during the first months of a Trump government, it will look as if they have the upper hand over Trump.

There may well be a Reichstag fire moment, when something happens that dramatically symbolizes the resistance of the permanent government to the merely elected government. Expect the newspapers to return to their old form and triumphantly announce how Trump has been decisively and humiliatingly defeated, how his policy is in ruins, because impossible to implement. If, as is likely, they announce that, they are falling into his trap, as when the Comintern set fire to the conveniently unguarded Reichstag.

The big known unknown is how thoroughly he intends to drain the swamp.

What we would like Trump to do is purge the government of traitors, bribe takers, degenerates, people on the revolving door between regulators and regulated, enemies of America, and, of course, Satanists. The Ming Dynasty criminalized sects because of the propensity of sect members to attain political power, such as the Ming dynasty itself. Deem membership of a sect that does weird stuff moral turpitude. Then fix numerous consent judgments organized by the Justice Department that make political dissent a violation of the affirmative action laws. Generate a precedent that disparate impact is legal, and unambiguously legalize domain specific IQ tests of the Fizzbuzz type or domain appropriate physical tests of the Marine pull up type. If only 0.1% of female and black applicants pass your company’s Fizzbuzz, you should have a cast iron defense against discrimination charges, even if search of your emails reveal engineers saying hateful things about women and blacks. Generate the legal precedent that evidence of political dissent cannot be presented as evidence of discrimination, and may not be presented in court because it merely prejudices the judgment. Then reverse the degree inflation that forces ever increasing numbers of students to spend ever increasing time in educational institutions that do not educate but merely indoctrinate. then confiscate the endowments, burn Harvard to the ground and salt the earth where it stood. Or redevelop Harvard into shops, offices, and hotels, which is more Trump’s style.

And, of course, use state power over cable and broadcast television to encourage the companies to fire Colbert and replace him with someone with an actual sense of humor and willingness to puncture actual sacred cows, like Pax Dickinson.

But before he gets to making Saturday Night Live funny again, has to get to redevelop Harvard into shops, condos, hotels, and offices.

Currently we have an elaborate system where committees give grants to people who are on committees. This renders power and funding untraceable and difficult to control. To drain the swamp, has to run government money through a direct hierarchy operating on das Führerprinzip.

So the Dean of a university should be appointed by the board, the Dean should have the power to hire and fire professors, and all academic funding should go through university, which is to say through the dean. If the Pentagon wants a professor at MIT to research something, it should pay MIT, not the professor.

We should abolish tenure. Tenure was supposed to make professors proudly independent and capable of dissent, but instead every single academic at every single institution grovels. When the line changes, every professor changes his position and instantly forgets that the line was different yesterday. The line emerges from an amorphous mass of committees, obscuring who has power and who makes decisions.

Outside funding of academics should be seen as corrupting. Would Steve Jobs be happy if one of his executives received large payments from a committee containing people connected to a competing company? All funding should go directly through the board and Dean/CEO.

And when we have replaced hidden lines of authority with direct lines of authority, on das Führerprinzip, we can then hold those with that authority responsible for what they do with it.

After getting rid of committees and outside funding, which hides who has power and who makes decisions, then and only then can we purge academia.

That is what is needed to stop Cthulhu from always swimming left, that is what is needed to make Saturday Night Live funny again. Whether Trump is up to go all the way with this program is, of course, the big known unknown.

Trumpslide

Monday, October 31st, 2016

Voter turnout is massive. You don’t get massive turnout like this to vote for the status quo. If Hillary wins, it will only be by equally massive election fraud. As Stalin said:

“I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this — who will count the votes, and how.”

Poll results are based on the theory that white turnout will be about the same as it was when both parties supported the ethnic cleansing of whites from certain areas, black attacks on whites on the basis of race, and the continual denigration and demonization of whites, and that male turnout will be about the same as it was when both parties supported rape hysteria and an epidemic of false rape accusations, the criminalization of fatherhood, the replacement of fatherhood with child support, brutal, draconian, and extraordinary methods of enforcing child support, and the systematic biased denial of credentials to males in a hostile and angry education system that is more interested in teaching them that masculinity is toxic and oppresses women than interested in genuine education.

I expect that the massive turnout reflects massively higher white voting and male voting.

Failing massive electoral fraud, expect a last gasp effort to deny him office by means of the electoral college, followed by a widespread government policy of paying even less attention to president Trump than they have been paying to president Obama.

Normally I recommend and practice non participation in democratic politics. It is a spectacle and a delusion. But this is the Flight 93 election. Vote early, vote often, and should opportunity permit it to be done safely, physically attack likely Hillary voters near polling booths.

Normally in an election, there is not much at stake, so peace is better than war. In this election, too much is at stake for anyone, left or right, to accept the decision of a majority of the voters. The election will not immediately lead to civil war, regardless of fraud or outcome, the time is not quite yet, but it will move us markedly closer to the time for war. The stakes get higher every election. The results of this election, and probably all future US elections, will not be quietly and routinely accepted by the losing side.

There will be war

Thursday, September 8th, 2016

Politics is about who whom.  Politics is tribalism and sectarianism.  The question is simple.  Who’s side are these guys on?  What tribe to they favor grabbing all the loot, and what tribe to they plan to destroy?  Ferguson burning is real politics, not ethanol subsidies.  Milwaukee burning is real politics. The violence that followed Trump’s cancelled Chicago rally is real politics.  Politics is the destruction of your enemies, the burning of their homes, the seizure of their women.

Politics is to defeat your enemies, to drive them before you, to take from them all they possess, to see those they love in tears.  If you are not ethnically cleansing Ferguson, and Milwaukee or resisting the ethnic cleansing of Ferguson and Milwaukee, it is not politics.  If you are not dumping weeping anchor babies over the border, it is not politics.

And if the other side is engaged in politics, and you are not engaged in politics, you lose.

Rotherham was the women of one voter group being forcibly emancipated, and then forcibly unemancipated to the benefit of another voter group.  Similar operations are taking place conspicuously and spectacularly in Sweden and Germany.   That is politics.

Politics is not abortion.  Politics is who gets control of women’s sexual and reproductive services.  Emancipation is not natural for women, and if one group’s women are emancipated, they will be taken by another group, and will be mighty glad of it.

Politics is ethnic cleansing and seizing the women of your enemies, politics is about land and women, and it has been about land and women ever since the wealthy and successful were driven out of the American inner city and lost their inner city properties.

If you are not destroying your enemies and securing land and women for your supporters, you are not engaged in politics.  The left is engaged in politics, mainstream conservatives are not.

For a conservative party to exist, it must unite to protect those that commit sacrilege against PC, in the same way it now unites to destroy them.  This requires them to reward their friends and punish their enemies, in the same way that they now reward their enemies and punish their friends.

For democracy to exist without massacre, pogroms, arson, and ethnic cleansing, requires very high levels of social cohesion and trust that we no longer possess, and that our government has been systematically destroying.  Diversity plus proximity means war.  If white males start nakedly pursuing their own interests the way that every other interest group does, it is going to be war.  If they don’t, genocide.

War is easy, peace is hard.  Governments everywhere have forgotten how easy war is, how difficult peace is, and gleefully throw jet fuel on the fire.  The natural state of mankind is war. Peace requires a high level of trust, cooperation, and well functioning social technology, all of which are being enthusiastically dismantled.  Peace is an elaborate machine with many moving parts, all of which have to work together correctly.

The anglosphere has been internally peaceful since the Mormon War and the War of Northern Aggression, so we think internal peace is natural.  This, however, is survivorship bias.  The anglosphere rules the world because of long internal peace.  But peace is not natural.  Peace is hard.  Ever since the wealthy and successful were driven out of the inner cities, we have been on a trajectory to where politics gets serious.

Hillary’s illness

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

The most notable symptom of her illness is the need for frequent and lengthy “naps”, often at inconvenient times that play hell with her schedule.  This sounds like alcoholism, since Parkinsons is bad all the time, while getting drunk comes and goes.

Both alcoholism and Parkinsons can cause coughing fits, but by and large, when you get coughing fits in Parkinsons you are pretty far gone and cannot pass for normal even superficially, whereas alcoholics with coughing fits pass for normal except that they get drunk at times that are socially inappropriate or inconvenient for their careers.

Alcoholic coughing fits tend to be associated taking high proof shots.  If you get drunk on wine, no problem, or at least no coughing problem.

During her most recent coughing fit she was stressing her throat by shouting into a microphone. Getting coughing fits while shouting is not all that odd.  If I took a few too many shots of high proof moonshine and then started shouting I would probably cough also, not really a sign of anything seriously wrong, (though the fact that she could not stop coughing but had to be hustled away is a sign of something seriously wrong) but why shout?  Just hold the microphone a little closer, or do as everyone does while singing or videoconferencing, have a headset that holds the microphone just beside your lips.

That she was shouting into the microphone suggests she was having speech difficulties, which she disguised by shouting.  If she was not shouting, would probably be slurring her words drunkenly.

Shouting worsens the common perception of her, that she is an angry nagging scold, a social justice warrior, the wicked witch of the west wing.  Women should not shout, and men should shout infrequently.

Clinton’s Booby Trap

Friday, August 26th, 2016

Hillary wants the alt right to take over the right, to become the Republican party.

Which means that the alt right gets all the lovely beltway gravy that the Republicans are getting today – and like the Republicans, gets no power. Like the Republicans, becomes the outer party.

The Republican party then becomes the white male party because white males are about to permanently outvoted and rendered politically irrelevant.

It is an improvement on the current plan of the Republican leadership, which is that elections from 2020 out consist of the Republicans saying “White males are hateful, evil and deserve to suffer”, and the Democrats saying “White males are really horribly hateful and evil and we are going to make them suffer even worse”. And the beltway gravy will be nice.

But remember. Demotic politics is never where the power is, it is just theater to manufacture legitimacy for rulers, never a source of power. It can, however, be a source of beltway gravy, which is not nothing.

The booby trap is that we will rationalize pursuit of the lovely beltway gravy by coming to believe, or at least pretend to believe, that demotic politics is where power comes from. The alt-right taking over the Republican party is not the booby trap. The alt right being exposed to the same incentives as the Republican party is the booby trap.
