Dumping Flynn

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

Dumping Flynn looks weak and will encourage the left to go after more scalps. And the people that were after Flynn are seeking war with Russia and Syria. War is easy, peace is hard, for it is always easier to create disorder than maintain order.

But, on the other hand, Flynn was expendable. On studying his career, I find he was a neocon, and an advocate of Coin (counter insurgency warfare). There is no such thing as counter insurgency warfare. There is only warfare. The stronger force wins, the weaker force loses, unless a large outside power (the Soviet Union or the United States State Department) has its thumb on the scales. In warfare, you don’t worry all that much about hearts and minds, for if you have to choose between being loved and being feared, you choose to be feared. If choosing to be loved was a realistic option, it would not be war. It would be social work.

If every time someone shoots at you from a girl’s school, you incinerate the school with girls and teachers inside, people stop shooting at you from girl’s schools. Or, more likely, the girls decide to skip attending school for the duration of the war.

The reason the Taliban has defeated the US in Afghanistan is that the US forces are infested with lawyers, the political commissars of the State Department, while the Taliban is not. The Taliban has the close equivalent of lawyers, priests, but their priests are interested in winning, they are warrior priests, while the State Department, the Blue Empire, is more interested in defeating the Pentagon, the Red Empire, than defeating the Taliban. If one side is fighting by police rules, and the other fighting by warrior rules, of course the warriors will defeat the police.

So quite possibly Trump initially chose Flynn as a compromise candidate, to sooth his enemies until his Pentagon powerbase is more secure, and is merely ditching him earlier than planned.

The hard core Trumpist position is that Russia should be allowed to be Russia, rather than being forced to accept progressivism, but Muslims should be smacked around till they stop making war on us. To get the Pentagon behind this position, he needs to do a Grenada – decisively defeat some penny ante bunch of Islamic extremists, preferably in cooperation with Russia. Maybe set up safe zones in Syria with the cooperation of the Russian and Syrian government.

The first confrontation between the Trumpenreich and the permanent government.

Monday, February 6th, 2017

If Trump, vivat rex, appeals to the supreme court and wins, a Pyrrhic victory. But do not fear, there will be many more confrontations.

if he appeals to the supreme court, loses and cucks out, then he is, like Reagan, just another speed bump in front of the progressive steamroller.

If he appeals to the supreme court, loses, and ignores them, a huge victory.

When Kevin Rudd attempted to slow the exponentially increasing flood of “refugees” to Australia (most of them not from war torn countries but from India and Bangladesh) the courts aggressively overruled him, expanding their authority. When Tony Abbott actually stopped the flood of “refugees”, the courts aggressively overruled him, further expanding their authority. “Refugees” remained stopped, eventually resulting in courts suddenly and quietly accepting a diminution of their authority to merely judicial matters.

Trump’s confrontation has not started as auspiciously as Tony Abbott’s confrontation, but then Tony Abbot had the benefit of Kevin Rudd in front of him. Kevin Rudd had promised to stop the “refugees” and failed, and then Tony Abbot promised to stop the “refugees” and thus had implicitly promised to ignore the courts, and had a mandate to do so.

So far, Trump is acting more like Kevin Rudd than Tony Abbott, which worries me. But Trump is twice the man that Tony Abbott was, and ten times the man that Kevin Rudd was. So I hope and expect that this will change when the time is right to strike down his enemies.

The solution I would really love to see is congress fire the United States Court of Appeals for The Ninth Circuit and institute a new bench of solid Trump judges, as the constitution explicitly provides for. But congress is full of cucks.

Trump is going to exhaust all legal remedies. He will appeal this to the supreme court once his judge gets put on the bench.

As commander-in-chief, Trump can, legally, declare martial law, formally adjourn Congress, send all judges to military prisons, and govern by executive degree. That might be unwise at this time, but a good confrontation with the judiciary with the judiciary acting in a blatantly unlawful manner could bring us a good step closer.

Courts predictably rule Trump’s election platform illegal

Saturday, February 4th, 2017

The judicial order is clearly illegal, being an exercise of executive, not judicial, authority, as it was in Australia. In Australia Tony Abbott ignored the courts, and found loyalists to enforce his will. Courts then went quiet, no drama ensued, and the precedent that the executive gets to make executive decisions is now respected in Australia, for the moment, despite the fact that Tony Abbott has been replaced by someone obviously weak kneed.

Upon being successfully defied, the Australian courts acted guilty, rather than outraged, eventually accepting their loss of status, and have made no attempt to reclaim the inflated status that they previously enjoyed and successfully claimed. They have been successfully humbled, and remain humbled.

Trump Derangement Syndrom and Status

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

Trump’s 2017 order on Muslim immigration is not very different from Obama’s 2011 order.  But what makes it different, the reason liberals weep tears of outrage, is that during his election campaign Trump committed Lèse-majesté, blasphemy, against Muslims.

Now suppose a bunch of sluts and whores go into a Cathedral and perform obscene acts on the altar disrupting the service, and get away with it, then that lowers the status of Christians, and raises the status of sluts and whores.

Thus, when Russian cops jailed Pussy Riot for trespassing in a cathedral and committing obscene acts, the progs were outraged, because sluts and whores are high status, while Christians are low status, and obviously high status people should be able to give low status people a hard time, and low status people should just suck it up.   High status chickens peck low status chickens, and low status chickens do not peck back, they peck lower status chickens. High status chickens go where they please, and lower status chickens get out of the way.

If Putin does not let sluts and whores give Christians a hard time, he implies that sluts and whores are lower status than Christians, which of course causes progs apoplectic rage, because it casts doubt on the status of progs.  Until Trump was elected, looked very much as if progs were going to defend their status with nuclear weapons.

If Muslims are allowed to go where they please and give ordinary white people, aka racists, a hard time, that implies that Muslims are higher status.  Which implies that progs are even higher status.  If they are not allowed, that implies that progs are not higher status.

You will notice that Trump is creating safe zones in the Middle East for Muslim refugees.  Which is arguably a lot better for Muslim refugees than coming to an alien country where they cannot get wives or jobs.  The problem for progs is that not just that they want Muslims to go where they please, they want them to go where they please and give ordinary whites (racists) a hard time.  They are not worried about the welfare of Muslims refugees, but their status.  Safe zones, instead of US migration, undermines Muslim status relative to white Americans. It denies Muslims the opportunity to prove that working class white people in flyover country are low status contemptible hateful people who do not matter.

Hence the seemingly peculiar proposition that Trump is being racist.  Islam is not a race.  Banning Muslims is like banning communists. There are Muslims of all races and communists of all races. Trump is not banning Hindus. There are plenty of Muslims in Russia with better claims to Aryan ancestry than any Southern white gentleman, and there are plenty of Muslims in the countries on Trump’s ban list that are as white as any American – for example Assad’s wife, Asma al-Assad.

Trump’s ban is racist because it raises the status of white Americans, not because it lowers the status of Muslims. It is racist not because it lowers the status of nonwhites, but because it raises the status of people that progs hate and wish to destroy. Same as Putin’s police arresting Pussy Riot for vandalizing a Cathedral.

That Alawites tend to marginally whiter than some other Syrians is of course a major part of the reason why the State Department wants them genocided, but there is a very large minority of Syrians of all religions as white as Asma al-Assad. Asma was a Sunni, and Sunnis are a major part of the refugees from Syria. The ban is not racist because it lowers the status of Muslims, it is racist because it raises the status of American whites, particularly those American whites in marginal electorates in flyover country who have had large numbers of Muslims refugees dumped on them and are now suffering inner city levels of murder and Rotherham levels of rape, due partly to the fact that Muslims tend to rape infidels, indeed arguably this is a religious duty, and partly due to the fact that the refugees are generally single military age men who do not speak English. Of course they are going to rape, even if it was not their religious duty.

Progs are apoplectic with rage because the Muslim ban raises the status of the sort of people in flyover country who voted for Trump, and thus lowers the status of progs. People in flyover country are low status, so should get pecked, and Muslim refugees are dumped upon them to do the pecking. Trump grants the people in flyover country high status. Trump is acting like a King, the fount of all honors mortal and divine, hence the prog cry “Not our president”. They reject his status, and his power to grant status, because they see he is disinclined to grant them the status they deem appropriate.

Long may the God Emperor reign.

You will notice that progs are almost as much outraged by Trump’s safe zones as by his ban on Muslim immigration, for the one takes away their power to rub their enemies faces in the dirt almost as much as the other.

Trump’s healthcare plan

Saturday, January 28th, 2017

Trump has explained the free market part of his healthcare plan in detail. It is heavily influenced by the free market part of Singapore’s tremendously successful free market healthcare system. I have no doubt that if implemented as described, it is going to work and work well.

Trumps plan for the free market healthcare system is great.

But what about Singapore’s socialist healthcare system for the poor and unfortunate?

Trump gets vague. Hospitals, he tells us, are going to get paid to take care of people “who really cannot take care of themselves”.

The trouble with this is that as I said earlier if bums, vagrants, and drug addicts go through the same intake, queue in the same line, and get the same treatment as you and me, there are going to be so many drug addicts looking for free drugs, and so many vagrants looking for free room and board, in line ahead of you and me that you and I are not going to get treated.

The way Obamacare deals with this problem is that you and I cannot afford to get treated because we are paying so much to look after drug addicts and vagrants.

Obamacare has provided insurance for everyone, by making everyone equally uninsured, provided equal access to everyone by equally denying everyone access. Obamacare has, predictably, collapsed. Ann Coulter cannot get insurance that covers broken bones and cancer. If you cannot get insurance that covers broken bones and cancer, not much point in having insurance at all. (Ah, but she is guaranteed free abortions, which get priority above broken legs.) If she suffers anything expensive, she will wind up with the same treatment options as the homeless bum who heads to hospital for free room and board. Which is to say, really crappy room and board, which is what you got in place of treatment in Cuban hospitals. Universal healthcare for the poor has become universal lack of healthcare for the well off.

The healthcare system has, predictably, collapsed, because it is being swarmed by bums, vagrants, and drug addicts.

When you fly, there is business class and cattle class. For Trump’s plan to work, hospitals are going to have to have separate intakes for those who are insured and paying deductible, and those who are getting free handouts. And those who are getting free handouts have to be made to really wish they were getting the kind of treatment that those who are insured and paying deductible get.

The big, big, problem, the problem he is being very quiet about, is preventing his plan for “Insurance for everyone” from devouring free market insurance the way Obamacare did. To prevent it from devouring the free market, you have to be mighty harsh on people who are getting medical care free.

You cannot adequately take care of bums, because bums will always demand more care than can be supplied. Thus a genuine universal scheme always winds up not providing care for anyone. If Ann Coulter breaks a leg or gets cancer, probably will wind up flying to Singapore, Thailand, or India.

For Trump’s scheme for “those who cannot take care of themselves” to work without destroying healthcare for paying customers, hospitals are going to have to have a separate door for “those who cannot take care of themselves”. And behind that door there needs to be someone with a taser, a stun gun, and a baton, plus doctors with a very simple and effective treatment for drug addition and obesity. They give the druggie no drugs till he completes withdrawal, and the obese person with no food at all till he is slim. Doctors have a hundred too clever by half rationales for not giving unpopular treatments. For non paying customers, however, need to give the most unpopular effective treatment possible.

The bitter bitch march

Thursday, January 26th, 2017

Chateau Heartiste is full of great wisdom, about how to get women to submit to your will, and about what motivates women, and has put his insightful finger on the Washington Women’s march. It is the Bitter Bitch March.

Ashley Judd is the star and exemplar of the anti Trump women’s march. Ashley Judd is single, childless and forty eight, soon to be forty nine. She is a nasty woman. In other words, she has failed as a woman. He ex husband, whom she dumped, has a hot young wife, a woman as beautiful as Ashley used to be when she was married to him, who recently gave him a child.

She used to be super hot, she was a movie star – but her perception of her sexual market value grew ever more inflated as her actual sexual market value hit the wall. Her last real movie was “Someone Like You” in which she was thirty three and her character was a woman waking up to falling sexual market value and about to hit the wall. Since then she has been in NGOs and a few political movies, and one real television series where she played a single woman with no love interest – only one year of real acting work – in other words, since she hit the wall fifteen years ago she has primarily been on the State Department payroll as part of its program of state sponsored leftism to move America and the world left.

Yesterday, a whole bunch of State Department heads “resigned” – in other words, were fired by Trump. I suspect she will not be getting any more gigs during the Trumpening. Childless, alone, and soon to be unemployed.

A man is not old at forty or fifty but a childless woman is. And in her old age, no one loves her and she is useful only for hurting people and making trouble. A nasty old woman, angry at older men with hot young wives, and about to be fired.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

This is an Obama program, still legal and operating right now, that gives illegal immigrants who are “children” de facto legal status – automatic permission to live and work in the United States, provided that they apply for it and register. In effect, retroactive magic soil citizenship, retroactive anchor babies.

Question: How young does your child have to be to be your retroactive anchor baby.

Answer: Your child had to be under sixteen when you arrived. If you illegally entered the USA with a child under sixteen, he can be your anchor baby.

People are telling Trump to let it stand, for if he stops it the press will go crazy with pictures of cherubic five year old orphans, and he will be discredited.

In Australia Tony Abbott and Malcolm Turnbull had a big run in with the press on imprisoning and throwing out cute little babies who had arrived illegally, or were born in Australia to illegals, and who were suffering from sad photogenic illnesses that supposedly could only be treated in Australian hospitals. If Tony Abbot and Malcolm Turnbull can tough it out, Trump should breeze through it.

No other advanced country in the world gives citizenship on location of birth (Except Canada). Nearly every country very recently used to give young illegals, and children of illegals born on magic soil, the heave ho, and there was never anything controversial about it until very recently. Further, Tony Abbott and Malcolm Turnbull got away with reversing the supposedly irreversible tide of history, and undid magic soil citizenship. The press thought it outrageous and extremely controversial, but it simply was not. In the end, no big deal. The dogs barked, and the caravan moved on.

On the face of it, giving illegals who have been in the US a long time citizenship is reasonable – if it was accompanied by measures to stop new illegals from arriving and deport recently arrived illegals. Which it never is. Wall and deportation has to come before amnesty.

Analysis of the shooting near Milo’s talk.

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

I examined the video frame by frame.

At nine seconds, Yellow Hat is walking swiftly and calmly through the crowd of thugs blocking access to Milo’s speech, and no one pays him any attention. He appears to be just another protester helping block access.

At 17 seconds Bald Man suddenly starts running towards him, and Yellow Hat abruptly starts backing away

At 19 seconds, a big yell goes up from the crowd. Yellow Hat appears to be being beaten up by the much larger Bald Man, or possibly more than one much larger man, and is fleeing, dodging, and zig zagging.

He is trying to evade Bald Man, and Bald Man is pursuing. It looks like some more people are joining in to cut off Yellow Hat’s escape.

At 26 seconds, Yellow hat is not facing towards Bald Man, who is right behind him in hot pursuit, but rather facing towards another man who appears to be moving into the path of Yellow Hat’s escape, so that Yellow Hat is trapped between Bald Man whom he is fleeing, and people moving into his path. Possibly several men are moving to intercept Yellow Hat. One man is advancing towards him hands outstretched as if to grab him, another hits him with a piece of cloth, perhaps a crumpled up banner. At 27 seconds a shot rings out. Bald Man falls, and Yellow hat reverses course, paying absolutely no attention to the fallen Bald Man, and retreating from the man he was facing when the shot was fired. Yellow Hat runs towards a group of left wing banners.

Either someone else shot Bald Man to take the pressure off Yellow Hat, or Yellow Hat shot Bald Man while glancing at him out of the corner of his eye in order to give himself a path of retreat. Yellow Hat did not look at Bald Man immediately before, during, or immediately after the shot, yet his reversal or course indicates he was aware that Bald Man had suddenly ceased to be a threat, and that he was now ignoring Bald Man because he had far more urgent problems.

Immediately after the shot, we see a big bunch of people with black masks over their heads and faces run from behind the camera towards the place where Bald Man was shot. Black masks being a pretty good indication of bad intent. Whether by accident or design, Bald Man had been chasing Yellow Hat towards the place the black masks appeared from. To the left of camera, everyone starts looking at the place the black masks came from, like there is something there much more important than a mere shooting.

In conclusion, leftie on leftie violence. Either Yellow Hat shot Bald Man in self defense, or someone else shot Bald Man to take the heat off Yellow Hat, fearing Yellow hat was about to suffer grave harm, possibly at the hands of the black masks. Probably Judean People’s Front versus the People’s Front of Judea. What do you expect when you hang out with violent thugs? Maybe everyone involved was a bad guy, but the one who got the bullet was the one who attacked first, unless a different bald man got popped in the confusion. Looks like justice on the face of it. Back in the sixties and early seventies I noticed that radical left organizations had a mysterious unfortunate mystery death rate similar to that of Clinton Associates.

Police fine with left wing violence

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

Milo attempted to give a talk. Leftists arrived to blockade the talk and prevent people from entering. The blockade was allowed to succeed, in that only those who came early got in. People who merely arrived on time were prevented from entering.

Bricks, firecrackers and paint were thrown at officers and others — and then a gunshot rang out.

Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole said there were no arrests and no serious injuries other than the shooting on the UW campus. “Things went well,” she said

Evidently I am a bit old fashioned, but it seems to me that if bricks are thrown, and people are prevented from going where they wish by violence and the threat of violence, there damn well should have been some arrests.

If you allow violence, violence will escalate. Hence the shooting. My guess is that someone who was unaware of events was suspected of attempting to attend the meeting, probably wrongly, was attacked, and defended himself. Because that is what happens when some privileged people are allowed to engage in violence with impunity. The police presence is to not to keep ordinary people safe, but to enable impunity, to keep those who are attacking people safe.

Smoke grenades and such are merely providing the drama to entertain violent people. Violent people need to be arrested and removed from society.

Deploraball totally cucked.

Friday, January 20th, 2017

Pepe banned from the Deploraball, which means the left gets to define what symbols mean, and what symbols are permitted.

If the left can ban Pepe from the Deploraball, they can make Deploraball attendees cheer someone in drag as “stunning and brave”, and the first Deploraball attendee to stop cheering loses his job, and will never be able to get another job.
