Trump is defunding the left and lowering its status

The EPA will no longer take science advice from “scientists” who receive stupendous amounts of money for climate doom.

During the Obama years, the EPA packed the CASAC panel. Twenty-four of its 26 members are now agency grantees, with some listed as principal investigators on EPA research grants worth more than $220 million

Environmentalists, predictably, sued, alleging this policy would change the “science” advice away from environmentalism – as obviously it would.

In 2016, the World Bank announced it would spend 28% of investments on climate-related projects by 2020, which is roughly three hundred to four hundred million dollars of American taxpayer money per year. All Climate related projects, as near to all of them as make no difference, are scams that enrich political activists, and again, Trump cut this out.

A horde of journalists have lost their jobs, and their status.

Trump is now taking aim at “Disparate impact” If he succeeds with “disparate impact”, there are going to be mass layoffs of bitter angry aging cat ladies with vast unpaid college debt and credit card debt from Human Resources, radically curtailing the status, wealth, and power of the left.

OK, I hear you say, what about the wall?

Well, I said, wait a while for the dust to settle. I see Trump threatening the courts with a Jackson, and expect the courts to back down lest their impotence be revealed, as happened in Australia. If the state of emergency goes through, the poison pills in the budget are largely rendered irrelevant. It is going to take a few days or a few weeks to see what has happened, what is happening and what is going to happen. And then I am going to post on the wall, the poison pill budget, and the State of Emergency.

These are all big moves, and are throwing the left into hysterics. But it is reasonable to doubt that they will suffice to save the day, for the biggest source of wealth, power and status for leftists is academia and the judiciary. The dissolution of the fake news media is a good start, but to win, will have to dissolve academia and the judiciary.

On the other hand it is a reversal of the movement to ever more wealth, power, and status for leftists. The enemy has revealed he can bleed.

But the real key to power, as Hitler realized, is the FBI, which is still engaged in criminal violence against Trumpists. Fixing the FBI would in practice be the coup, which I have long been optimistically predicting, and my predictions have not been fulfilled. But I can see an increasing number of Republicans uncucking over the FBI. Not enough yet to give the color of legality to the coup.

Of course, we are reactionaries here. You cannot rule without a religion in your pocket. Hitler could put a Nazi in charge of every boyscout troop and every union chapter. Trump cannot put a Trumpist in charge of the FBI. Getting away with violence is high status. Suffering violence done to you with impunity is low status. German Nazis were high status because they could get away with violence. Radical leftism is high status because they can get away with violence. Reaction is low status because violence is inflicted upon us with impunity.

When Constantine made Christianity the state religion, Christians could get away with violence against pagans. The extent of the persecution of paganism by Christianity gets hugely exaggerated. There was not in fact enough of it to erase every pagan temple and wipe out every pagan priesthood, or even a significant fraction of them. But there was enough of it to make paganism low status and Christianity high status, which over time had much the same effect as if Christians had done what they get accused of having done. The pagan temples came to be unused, and then Christians could smash them all. The real Christian clampdown came when there was nothing much left to clamp down upon.

Homosexuals became high status because they were granted aristocratic privilege to engage in violence The disrespectable gays were openly intimidating people with the tacit support of the 100% respectable elites. Alex Jones fans cannot intimidate anyone because they are not violent enough and don’t have that tacit support. Compton’s Cafeteria got Kristallnachted twice. And so on…

And thus gays became respectable.

We are low status because Faith Goldy has been physically assaulted by protesters as Canadian media companies sat back and filmed. She has been scrubbed from every online payment service, making it impossible for her to support herself. Ads for her Toronto mayoral campaign have been banned by Rogers and Bell Media. Her life has been destroyed. She is shouted at in public and assaulted in the street

To halt the left wing singularity is going to require some serious and substantial violence against leftists, and we are very far short of that. Lacking numbers, cannot control the FBI. Not controlling the FBI, going to lack numbers.

I had hoped and expected that Trump would simply put a Trumpist in charge of the FBI, and everything would fall into place. Hillary for Prison. That is not happening, in part because though Trump has a reliable supply of federalist judges, he does not have a reliable supply of Trumpists.

Defunding the left

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

Reagan talked about defunding the left, but never actually did anything.

As a result of Trump’s threats against Berkeley, they are starting to think that hiring a bunch of thugs to beat people up and cause over a hundred thousand dollars worth of damage may have been a bit excessive.

Meanwhile Trump and congress are working on stripping two billion from NASA global warming propaganda.

NASA put up a bunch of satellites to measure global warming. To their considerable disappointment, these show no significant warming in the past twenty years. To a good approximation, no significant warming since the satellite data became sufficiently accurate as to deny people excuses for “correcting” it. So they returned to the old faithful, “surface temperature measurements” – otherwise known as weather reports. The trouble with weather reports is that from time to time the location of the thermometer, or the time of day when it is read, changes. Also the location is usually directly adjacent to human habitation, which over time tends to have more humans, more cars, and more parking spaces, all of which tends to warm things up. This requires numerous very large “corrections”, which corrections are pulled out of the rectums of NASA’s climate “scientists” – who sound more like cultists than scientists. One of the commenters asks of one such correction:

Did anyone ever figure out how the trends in the interior of Greenland could exceed the trends actually observed at stations*? Since there are no stations in the interior, the trends there must be computed by interpolating from nearby (coastal) stations

According to NASA’s climate data, GISS, calculated from surface stations, the world is getting hotter primarily in places where there are no surface stations.

Of course cutting a few billion from climate change activism is small change compared to the core of the problem, the universities, and I cannot see Trump taking on the universities unless he makes himself King.

But two billion less for climate change activism is the first cut for the left since the cuts that happened in restoration of Charles the second. It is a start.

Further, it is going to scare the vermin into voiding their bowels, since it was the most blatantly propagandistic warming “science” that got the first cut.
