Breaking Epstein’s hyoid bone

Thursday, August 15th, 2019

To break your hyoid bone in a suicide, you need to tie a rope around your neck and jump off something high enough that there is a drop before the rope tightens, and the rope tightens before your feet hit the ground. And there needs to be a decent drop distance before the rope tightens.

An “Introduction to the Work of a Medical Examiner” by John Miletich and Tia Lindstrom says that the “drop distance needed to break a neck depends on the person’s body mass…the hanged person’s neck breaks when his falling body reaches the end of the rope, rapidly tightens the noose, and wrenches his neck sideways, dislocating or snapping his neck’s axis bone.”

For Epstein to suicide, he would have had to tie the bedsheets around his neck, and then lift his feet of the ground, which can be done, but requires a fair bit of crazed determination and will not break your neck bones. Why would Epstein want to kill himself when he still had the goods on powerful people, and had gotten out of trouble before? Even if he wanted to suicide, he would not have sufficient determination or madness to kill himself that way.

A correctly applied chokehold, where you are behind your victim, your right elbow is at the front of the victim’s neck, your right hand is nestled in your left elbow, and your left hand is gripping your right arm, will not break any neck bones either, but if the victim is struggling effectively, and he gets your feet out from under you, you both wind up rolling around on the ground, then you are likely to break his neck bones. You want to lift the victim of the ground, so that your eyes are protected by his back from an eye gouge, and he has no leverage to get you off balance and get his feet behind your feet.

That Epstein was screaming, and that his hyoid bone was broken, indicates his killer was having a hard time of it. A correctly applied chokehold will instantly silence the victim, incapacitate him in ten seconds, render him unconscious in eighteen seconds, and dead in three minutes, leaving no indications that this was not another convenient suicide.

Mueller Testimony

Sunday, July 28th, 2019

A lot of people interpreted the Mueller testimony as Mueller being senile and forgetful.

Did not look like that to me. He was “forgetful” under hostile cross examination:

Looked to me that he was repeatedly caught lying to congress. He was not forgetful, he was changing his story in midstream.

Looked to me that he is used to an environment where lying is mandatory, crimethought forbidden, so you can lie easily and comfortably and no problems ensue, everyone lies to each other and to themselves, everyone is supposed to lie, and was caught like a deer in the headlights when he was required to interact with those so shockingly discourteous as to follow different rules.

When Nunes issues his opening statement Mueller looked to me like a criminal listening to the prosecutor make his opening statement, then, part way through the prosecutor’s indictment, realize that the prosecutor has not yet found the good stuff, and he stands a good chance of beating the rap. Mueller is worried, but he not as worried as he would be if Nunes had the goods on him.

The General Flynn Affair

Wednesday, July 17th, 2019

From the beginning, it has been obvious that the FBI and the Democrats sincerely believed they had the goods on Trump, that he was guilty of something or other, had to be guilty of something or other, even though they were never clear in their own minds of exactly what. And from the beginning, it has been obvious that the FBI and the Democrats did not have the goods on Trump, because anything that they deluded themselves that they had, they leaked ten times over to the press in ten different versions, and it was all nuts.

It was always obvious that all this stuff was self delusion, wishful thinking, and motivated reasoning, usually reasoning so highly motivated as to be Trump derangement syndrome. It was obvious from the beginning that they were evil plotters who could not get their evil plot together because driven mad by Trump.

General Flynn hired defense lawyers that were completely in the pocket of Trumps enemies, completely in the pocket of Mueller, completely in the pocket of those prosecuting him. He pled guilty to lying to the FBI, which is the universal all purpose charge of which anyone who talks the FBI is guilty. If they ask you questions for eighty hours, you are bound to say something that that plausibly can be interpreted as contradicting something else, so anyone who talks the FBI for long enough is guilty of lying to the FBI. He then got a plea deal in which this terrible crime would be excused, because he was such a cooperative witness.  They talk to you until you say something that can plausibly be argued contradicts something else you said, then they demand you tell them what they want to hear.  This is a closed loop that leads to madness, because it is guaranteed to produce confirmation of delusions.

Which plea deal makes sense only if the FBI and the Democrats believed he had the goods on Trump and he had agreed to give them the goods on Trump. And also makes sense only if he believed that the presidency, the traitors, had the power, and the mere president did not have the power. And similarly, hiring “defense” lawyers that were completely in the pocket of Mueller and the prosecution lawyers only makes sense if the presidency, the traitors, have the power, and the mere president does not have the power.

His lawyers were radical leftist traitors attempting to overthrow the elected government of the United States, the prosecutors were radical leftist traitors attempting to overthrow the elected government of the United States, and Mueller is a radical leftist traitor attempting attempting to overthrow the government of the United States with a long history of abusing the power of the FBI to persecute real and imagined rightists, while turning a blind eye to the crimes of leftists. There was no daylight between Flynn’s defense team, and Mueller’s prosecution team, they were all in each other’s pockets, they were all one big happy family. And it only makes sense for them to be all one big happy family if they were all after Trump, they all believed Flynn had the goods on Trump, and they all believed that Flynn had given them the goods on Trump.

The Mueller investigation consisted of going after everyone connected to Trump, concocting crimes for them, and demanding that they sing on Trump to be excused these crimes. And, often enough, when put under sufficient pressure, they did sing on Trump but the tales they came up with never had any substance, always wild assed speculation, bare faced lies, sheer nonsense, or just hints that pointed Mueller’s team to go after someone else, anyone else. Trouble with putting people under pressure is if you apply too much pressure, they are going to tell you what you want to hear, but it is not necessarily going to be anything likely to stand up in court.

Eventually, belatedly, very belatedly, the light dawned, that Flynn had not given them the goods on Trump, that he did not have the goods on Trump. This had always been obvious to me from the transparent insanity of all the leaks telling us that Flynn had the goods on Trump, but it had not been obvious to all the transparently insane people leaking how Flynn’s testimony nailed Trump.

So the defenseprosecution team, defense and prosecution being a single team that was after Trump, not Flynn, decided that Flynn had broken his plea deal, and they would hang him out to dry. Whereupon Flynn, to Trump’s delight, fired his “defense” lawyers, who were trying to lock him up and throw away the key, being driven mad with rage by the failure of Flynn to nail Trump. Flynn then got a Trumpist defense lawyer who was, and is, determined to expose the crimes of the Mueller investigation and nail Mueller’s hide to the wall. Flynn’s choice of defense lawyer only makes sense if the president has the power, and the presidency, the traitors, do not have the power.

So this looks like a creeping coup, and a creeping countercoup, with Trump countercoup successful. Going after Flynn is an act of pointless self destructive vindictiveness, an act of madness. They just want to lash out and hurt people for no sane reason. Punishing Flynn does not help them – it just makes it more obvious that the investigation of Trump was criminal, and used criminal methods. And if their attempt to punish Flynn fails, as it looks like it will fail, it also makes it more obvious that they lost, that they are defeated, that they are out of power. If they can punish Flynn, they are still in power. If they cannot, not in power. And now, whether they are in power or not is about to be put to the test. If they cannot punish Flynn, no one will fear them any more, and if no one fears them any more, everything falls apart for the traitors.

State of the Union Speech

Wednesday, February 6th, 2019

Trump gave a great speech, in which he re-affirmed his campaign promises, not yet kept, to end the forever war and build the wall,

Wealthy politicians and donors push for open borders while living their lives behind walls, and gates, and guards.

Meanwhile working class Americans are left to pay the price for mass illegal immigration

  • reduced jobs
  • lower wages
  • overburdened schools
  • hospitals that are so crowded you can’t get in
  • increased crime
  • and a depleted social safety net

Smugglers use migrant children as human pawns to exploit our laws and gain access to our country.

These memes cheerfully lifted from Heartiste and from the reaction.

And what made this speech even greater is that the Democrats are planning to shoot themselves in the foot by having Stacey Abrams, dim witted fat middle aged black cat lady romance writer with fifty thousand dollars in unpaid taxes, a hundred and seventy thousand dollars in credit card debt, and no substantial assets, deliver the rebuttal. Stacey favors open borders so that our enemies who hate us can invade us, opposes gun rights so that the people coming over the open borders can kill us, opposes voter ID so that they can outvote us, favors late term abortions, and opposes religious liberty because old type Christians are Nazis who need to be punched, like the Covington boys.

Stacey Adams is the new face of the non white non male Democratic Party, which is going to run Kamala Harris for its 2020 candidate.

One of the delights of the State of the Union speech was watching evil ugly wicked witch Nancy Pelosi stare into the headlights of the oncoming truck. Too white for Democrats, too anti white for whites. When Trump renewed his promise, not yet kept, to end the forever war, she sneered, reasonably so because the senate had just voted near unanimously to overrule the president on the forever war. Then, as one of his measures to end the forever war, Trump listed moving the embassy to Jerusalem. She gasped, visibly shocked and distressed.

Moving the embassy means giving up on the project of doing to Muslims in the Middle East what Democrats have done to Christians in the West, and Trump’s statement makes sense from the point of view that the forever war is a crusade to impose progressivism on Muslims, and Trump is not going to impose progressivism on Muslims. He aims to cut a deal with the Taliban whereby they agree not to export terror, and he agrees to let them keep conservative Islam. Putting the embassy move into the context of ending the forever war puts ending the forever war into the context of progressivism losing the middle east to Islam, and to hell with the arc of history.

OK, we elected him to save America for Christians, not to save the Middle East for Muslims, but saving the Middle East for Muslims shows our enemy can bleed.

State of Emergency coming up.

Wednesday, January 9th, 2019

Trump is readying a state of emergency to build and fund the wall without congressional approval. He has already been building and funding the wall without congressional approval, but a state of emergency would arguably make it legal.

The Democrats are going to scream in pain that this is a dire threat to rule by the permanent government of law and democracy. Which it is.

There are already a thousand and one states of emergency, each of them consuming vast amounts of funds that congress has not appropriated, and each of them granting a vast and lawless army of bureaucrats open ended powers to smash the lives of Americans that they do not much like.

The difference between this coming state of emergency, and the other thousand and one states of emergency, is that all of the others were declared by bureaucrats tossing a declaration of state of emergency into the president’s in tray, from which it went unread and unnoticed to his out tray. The usual bloody battle then ensued for the papers in the out tray, each of which grants a nameless bureaucrat, whose face the president does not recognize, power to act with the full power of the president. The winning bureaucrat then wipes the bloodstains off the declaration, feeds it into the presidential autosigner, then, after getting his wounds treated, hires an army of bureaucrats, forming a new bureau with himself as head to harass Americans all over America and radically disrupt their lives, loves, and plans, even though the original emergency only affected one orchard in South Florida.

This declaration of state of emergency is going to be different from all of the others because it actually references a real emergency, rather than an ant infestation in a South Florida orchard, because actually composed by the actual president, and because actually addressing the kind of threat that the office of president was intended to deal with, rather than functions that properly belong to state and municipal governments.

The Democrats are going to appeal this state of emergency, but unless they openly say “The president should reign but not rule, the permanent government should rule”, the court cannot explain what makes this one different from the other thousand and one states of emergency.

The Democrats are going to tell us this a big step towards them getting helicopter rides to the Pacific, and they are absolutely right, but unable to explain why, or even to think why, because actually thinking through the reasons is crimethink.

White pill on the shutdown and wall

Thursday, January 3rd, 2019

The Ann Coulter black pill is that Trump is going to cuck out, and the wall is not going to be built.

Nuts!


The wall is being built. Trump just wants a fig leaf to make building it legal.

Obamacare was never legally passed: House passed one version, Senate passed another version, reconciliation produced a third version, none of them workable, so Obama took legislative, judicial, and fiscal authority into his own pocket and implemented his own Obamacare, using the various things that had arguably been passed as fig leaf. This is a problem of central planning, that since any one central plan steps on lots of toes, it is impossible to get a majority, or even a substantial plurality, in favor of any one central plan. A socialist American is an America that must be ruled by one man, with all the other branches of government ancient and absurd rituals, like the Queen going her stagecoach to open parliament. There is nothing actually stopping Trump from building the wall except the permanent government and he finally got enough control over the permanent government that he is going right ahead building it. He just needs to pretend the Republic is still in effect, because as in the rise of the Roman Imperium, accusations that the other guy is overthrowing the (long dead) Republic are going to be used to seize power and kill the other guy.

Obama implemented Obamacare illegally by executive order with a fig leaf of legislation, and Trump is dismantling and replacing Obamacare, taking advantage of (il)legal precedents set by Obama, without even a fig leaf. The shutdown is just to give Trump a fig leaf.

America’s healthcare is in socialist crisis, because the system of cross subsidies has abolished prices and the market. You cannot shop around, because everyone is forbidden to tell you what the price is going to be, and in practice, the price is set retroactively on the basis of how affluent you are suspected of being. They are not only forbidden to tell you, they are forbidden to know. Trump is moving toward restoring prices and the market.

Reagan instituted a system where one hundred morbidly obese pregnant Mexican women with type two diabetes go to emergency and get free medical care, and then one middle class white guy goes to emergency because his son fell out of a tree and needs three stitches on his arm, and the white middle class guy gets billed for three stitches and one hundred morbidly obese pregnant Mexican women with type two diabetes.

America’s healthcare is in socialist crisis, because the system of cross subsidies has abolished prices and the market.

Trump is not just dismantling Obamacare. He has Reagancare in his sights – heading towards a two tier system where normal people pay market prices for medical care, and socialist care is for the broke, the unlucky, and the improvident.

Given that Trump is actually building the wall, and actually dismantling the socialist system created by Reagan and Obama, I have high hopes he is going to keep on escalating the pressure – shutdown the Mexico border, shutdown various government activities that primarily benefit the Democratic vote bank in Democratic electorates.

I see lots of photos of people erecting new fence, and the caravan confrontation occurred around a fence that had been massively upgraded.They looked for a way around, and wound up attempting to go through a less used crossing, which had a thirty foot fence with barbed wire entanglements on top. It is also clear that though people are still going around the fence, it is a lot more difficult that in used to be, and some people are attempting to go over eight feet of barbed wire entanglements.

So, I am white pilled on the fence. Of course I am white pilled. We just had a caravan frustrated by the fence!

That is a fence. It is actually stopping people. We see people trying to climb over eight feet of barbed wire entanglements with spikes at the bottom! Yes, we need more fence, a lot more fence, but what Trump has already built is a major improvement, and nicely scary and unwelcoming.

You have probably heard that the shutdown started before Christmas, with a zillion fedgov employees furloughed.

This is not exactly true, since those laid off were not doing anything terribly urgent. Shutdown starts January 15, the first missed payday, when those laid off do not get paid.

  1. Pay is delayed by about 8 days or so after the two week pay period in which it was earned. The shutdown would have to go until 1/15/19 for a fedgov employee to miss one single paycheck.
  2. White middle class people like you and me are untroubled by dipping into savings to cover a few delayed paychecks when everyone estimates a 100% chance of getting back-pay.
  3. And that includes your bank estimating a 100% chance of getting back pay – and therefore your bank will routinely pause mortgage payments on request and make you a loan against expected back pay.
  4. All furloughed fedgov employees received “notice to creditors” letters, which are widely accepted, even by landlords, because few creditors want the PR trouble of putting to the screws to some guy who’s been furloughed and is known for sure to be “good for it” just as soon as the money comes in.
  5. Several major credit unions have offered easy, quick, low-interest loans so that the few people who are in tight spots can still pay all the bills, and then just pay the loan back as soon as they get paid. Two thousand bucks at five percent interest for two weeks is 4 bucks interest – not even worth the underwriting effort, but many banks seem willing to do it anyway.
  6. Furloughed government employees can file for unemployment and get paid that way. That’s also treated as a ‘loan’ which must get paid back when the money is turned back on, but no one should be in financial distress for a long, long time.

However, not all fedgov employees are people like you and me.

They are the Democratic Party vote bank, hired to vote, not to work. No one will lend them money, because there is no chance in hell they are going to pay it back, and they don’t have any savings.

This shutdown inflicts massive pain on people who don’t vote republican, on people who get paid not for doing anything remotely useful, but for voting Democrat. White government employees are generally hired to do something. Most government employees are hired because the permanent government wants a certain demographic in a certain electorate. And that demographic is not white and male.

On the first missed payday, we shall see that in certain electorates there are very large numbers of government employees who are absolutely and totally unemployable, who were hired because they profile as people that no normal person would ever hire for any normal job and who in a civilized society would be killed, exiled, or sold into slavery, and who can therefore be relied upon to vote democratic, and in these electorates there will be a whole lot of government employees complaining about genuine hardship. And, needless to say, these are electorates represented by Democrats.

So, all the pain is inflicted on Democrats in electorates represented by Democrats. The people that it hurts are people who were getting benefits for being Democratic party voters. Less benefit, less votes.

I predict a band of plains apes descending on their white Democratic Party representatives after January 15. I would like to see naked cannibal plains apes, but regrettably they will probably be still be wearing clothes. There will, however be a smell revealing that some of them lack the intelligence and self control necessary to learn or retain toilet training, and they will threaten to eat their Democratic Representatives, even if they regrettably refrain from actually eating them. Actual consumption of political representatives will not happen until several years of further movement left.

Election outcome

Wednesday, November 7th, 2018

I am disappointed and surprised that we did not see a red wave. But the loss of the house changes little. Trump did not have a majority of Trump Republicans before the election and he now has a slightly larger minority of Trump Republicans. And in any case, the house has had no real power since FDR.

With better control of the Senate, Trump can get judges and appointments through better, and this makes a big difference, since personnel are policy.

Augustus could kill his opponents, and Duterte can kill his opponents, but it took Augustus over ten years to get real control of the Roman government, and Duterte still has no real control of the Philippine government. (Rome continued to suffer from anarcho tyranny, government by mobile bandits, until 11BC.)

Hitler, on the other hand, took real control of the German government in two years. Roman emperors continued to have problems controlling their government until Constantine got a religion in his pocket. Warriors need priests in their pocket in order to govern successfully.

As Charles the first said “No Bishop, no King.”

The right wins in Brazil

Monday, October 29th, 2018

If we are lucky, this will be the last Brazilian election in a very long time. Bolsanaro is more Trump than Trump is.

The White House has confirmed that US president Donald Trump called  Jair Bolsonaro on Sunday night to congratulate him on his election victory.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says that Trump congratulated the president-elect and that “both expressed a strong commitment to work side-by-side to improve the lives of the people of the United States and Brazil.

The losers looked remarkably like Hillary supporters on election night. Lots of delicious liberal tears.

His political program is on the face of it unremarkable: for gun rights, for family, against abortion, for capitalism, for God, for country, for secure property rights and in particular for secure property rights in land and houses, against crime and corruption. Is there anyone who is openly for crime and corruption?

So why the all the drama?

Because, in the eternal struggle between priests and warriors, he thinks that warriors should rule. When our priestly classes, the professoriat, the media, and the judiciary, cast God out of the high places, they sawed off the branch on which they were sitting. For priests to rule, they need to plausibly claim to represent God and be backed by God.

And, having declared themselves holier than God, proceeded to rub it in with gay rights, transexuals, and so on and so forth. There is a limit to what can be done with soft power, and they have hit that limit, and are flailing. Increasingly they are forced to use openly dictatorial methods, such as seizing the gab.com domain name.

We have non priestly rulers in the USA, in the Philippines, in Hungary, and now in Brazil, the most openly opposed to the official priesthood of them all. In the USA, the priestly classes are abandoning their pretended support for freedom of speech and freedom of religion, so even if they win, they lose. In Hungary, and only in Hungary, the elected government has taken real power from the permanent government, but if it can be done in Hungary, possible in America.

The holiness spiral, the left wing singularity, inexorably leads the priesthood into self destruction. The details of the crash are different each time, as glass shatters differently each time, but the crash is inevitable. Where we go from here no one knows, but ever leftwards is looking less and less likely.

The seizure of Gab a few days before the election, and the obvious bomb fakery, reveals that they are abandoning business as usual, and are now going to try open priestly dictatorship, as in Russia in 1916

If they had just sat quiet for eight years of Trump, and waited for demographics to continue to move in their favor, they would have been fine. Business as usual would have worked for them and would have destroyed us. But the underlying force of the left wing singularity will not let them sit quiet. They have to continue becoming ever more extreme, ever faster, and it is biting them. The frog is now being fast fried instead of slow boiled.

The coalition of the evil and unhinged

Friday, October 19th, 2018

People form political coalitions within a larger society in order to knock over apple carts to grab some apples. That is what politics is. That is why people use “political” as a negative word. Because it is a negative thing.

The left is not the largest coalition. The left is whatever coalition is largest.

Whatever happens to be the supposed coalition issues at any given time is unclear, arbitrary, and frequently changing. The left has no essence, no defining character, other than that is against whoever is managing the apple cart, and against whatever is keeping the apple cart upright.

But right now, it is a coalition of single women against males, husbands, marriage, and children, nonwhites and Jews against whites, and the underclass, Human Resources employees, accountants, and government employees against capitalists and against private sector employees who produce physical things, sexual deviants against straights, and non Christians against Christians.

Democrats tend to think that the only reason someone would which oppose this coalition is if he is a straight white male Christian capitalist.

(And I am a straight white male who is socially Christian in the sense of irregularly attending Church and ingrouping Christians, viewing them as adoptive kin, and arguably at least as capitalist as any kulak. Half the time Carlylean Restorationist and Glosoli tell us that they are only against invisible trillionaires, and the other half of the time, they are going to kill the peasant who raised a pig to eat, because he is supposedly forcing blacks on welfare to eat too much fried chicken fast food, so I am at least as capitalist in my economic role as those that Carlylean Restorationist blames for bad lower class behavior, and I am also socially capitalist regardless of what definition they use in any one comment and regardless of my economic role.  When Human Resources went after management, I got drunk with management.)

All large tribes are necessarily synthetic, all a synthetic tribes are necessarily religious, are necessarily religions, broadly defined, and the people who are managing the unity, solidarity, and social coalition of the synthetic tribe are necessarily performing a priestly role, are clerics and priests, broadly defined. And so, in any synthetic tribe, you tend to get priests on top, and the path to get to the top of the priesthood is apt to be superior holiness.

So, it is not just our society that is coming down with a holiness spiral. It is the left coalition that is coming down with a holiness spiral and the left dominating our society.

The left, like my excessively frequent commentators Carlylean Restorationist and Glosoli, tells us that we white males should hate capitalists and capitalism (which happens to be overwhelmingly straight, white and male).  Supposedly all these rape and sexual harassment charges are coming from Evil White Male Trillionaires, not from the cat ladies of Human Resources. Perhaps on some other blog, they pose as white women and tell white women to hate white males, and that therefore white women should ingroup blacks on welfare, and on a Muslim blog, tell Muslims to hate Christians, and that therefore Muslims should ingroup feminists, support abortion, and emancipate their daughters.

But, as the left coalition goes ever more extreme under the pressure of the holiness spiral, it is increasingly against all whites, all males, all Christians, and all heterosexuals. So in the coming election, all whites, all males, all married women, all Christians, and all straights should vote Republican.

We are seeing Republicans go after the votes of black males and the wives of black males, rationally appealing to the rational self interest of intelligent black men, and the wives of black men, that the Democratic anti male agenda is dangerous to men, and telling them it is especially dangerous to black men, that black males are under even worse threat of getting the Kavanaugh treatment than white males.

Trump’s maleness appeals to black males. Hence Kanye West praising Trump’s male energy. The president is the father of the nation, and it is has been a long time since the nation has had a masculine father figure. Lots of black males are, like Kanye West, missing that male father figure.

In the 2016 Republican Presidential primaries, we saw Trump, and only Trump, campaign against the holiness spiral.

In the 2018 mid term elections, we are seeing a whole lot of mainstream republicans, led by Trump and inspired by Trump, campaign against the holiness spiral.

But the holiness spiral is not the Democratic party, and cannot simply be voted out of power. Observe that the holy are still in power, despite having been voted out already.

Tony Abbott in Australia took measures unthinkably drastic by American standards, and yet the holy remained in power. Duterte and Viktor Orbán, however, are getting places. Duterte used right wing death squads. Viktor Orbán applied less drastic measures, but he has been in power a long time and only now is getting some traction.

Charles the First said “No Bishop, No King”, meaning if no Bishop, then no King. For the merely elected leadership to be effective against the holiness spiral, they to intervene in the priesthood to stop holiness competition, which is what Viktor Orbán has been doing. He made superior holiness a poor career move.

There are huge number of state and quasi state jobs that are supposedly immune from “political” control, people who are on the government or quasi government payroll, who are chosen by their fellow social justice warriors on the basis of superior holiness, which means that they are immune from merely elected politicians, but their appointments are in practice very political indeed.

What Viktor Orbán did is radically amend the constitution to put these under direct “political” control – put the priesthood directly under the authority of the merely elected government, and he then proceeded to make superior holiness a bad career move within the priesthood.

A similar change in the US, to do in the US what Viktor Orbán did in Hungary, would be to confiscate the college endowments, give the president the power to hire and fire any civil servant, including college presidents and judges, and make the president effectively the final court of appeal over the supreme court. And then elections could halt the holiness spiral.  As long as we have a vast pile of quasi governmental institutions that are outside the power of the merely elected government, in particular Human Resources, we are going to continue having a holiness spiral regardless of people voting against it.  Accounting is also falling to Social Justice Warriors, having been remade by Sarbanes-Oxley into a quasi governmental institution, and as a result the accounts of publicly traded joint stock corporations are fast becoming as unreliable as peer reviewed research, in much the same way, and for much the same reasons, as peer reviewed research has become irreproducible.

In the coming mid term elections, we will likely get a merely elected government that is hostile to that holiness spiral, though unable to do much about it.  No Bishops, therefore no King.  Once again I repeat my prescription:  Archbishop, Inquisition, and Grand Inquisitor.

To implement that in America, likely will need a King.

Angry mob meme

Thursday, October 11th, 2018

The Democrats are an angry mob of crazy vicious moral degenerates.

Trump:

“You don’t hand matches to an arsonist, and you don’t give power to an angry left-wing mob. Democrats have become too EXTREME and TOO DANGEROUS to govern. Republicans believe in the rule of law – not the rule of the mob.”

Well, then, if the other party is an angry mob, democracy cannot really continue.

Democracy relies on a certain amount of comity, trust, and mutual tolerance keeping the stakes down to something that people can afford to lose, a general acceptance of playing by the rules.

Progs instituted a new rule: That if a male is accused by any women anywhere, even if there is no likelihood they ever met, different schools, different circles of friends, hang out in different geographical areas, even if the woman is ugly and the man handsome, even if the woman has no evidence and is strangely vague as to the place and time where this supposedly happened, even if there is no indication that the two ever met, or were ever in a situation where they could have met, well then, the man is guilty, because we cannot possibly doubt the victim. If you doubt the victim, the poor pitiful victim, you are a rape apologist.

And then, in a startling display of balls, Republicans refused to play by these rules. Democrats were outraged.

Eric Holder:

“When they go low, we kick them. That’s what this new Democratic Party is about,”

So, republicans must be punished for noncompliance with the 2018 rule until compliance is obtained, since failure to comply with the latest unilaterally announced progressive rules is obviously unacceptably bad behavior.

What, I wonder, will the 2019 rule be?

If Republicans must be punished, can they ever allow a mere election to return Democrats to power?

And if the Democrats do regain power, chances are that Republicans are going to be punished in a way that makes it impossible for them to ever return to power by democratic means.

I am not predicting that democracy will dramatically and visibly disappear tomorrow, because the Roman Republic never dramatically and visibly disappeared. Rather, we will have elections that increasingly resemble the style of today’s California or the 1934 German plebiscite.
