Coup

Trump has said the coup word.

Of course, it is not really a Democrat coup until they send a bunch of guys dressed in freshly issued police uniforms and equipped with a subpoena from some judge in Hawaii and give him the perp walk without bothering with the old fashioned inconvenience of a senate supermajority impeachment. And if one coup once, chances are there will be another coup, this time without bothering with the freshly issued police uniforms and subpoena.

But it is a creeping coup. In a creeping coup coupists do bad things, get away with it, and, getting away with it, people dare not stop them when they do worse things. And so far, the Democrats have gotten away with it, which inevitably results, and is intended to result, in an escalation of those bad things.

And if he starts arresting Democrats for their numerous illegal acts, they will certainly think it is a Trump self coup – and it will be, regardless of whether Trump intends it to be or not.

The Roman Republic died when the Gracchi defied term limits, and the senate murdered them.

When Augustus attempted to revive the Republic, or pretended to attempt to revive the Republic, he was not attempting to heal a gravely ill patient, but to perform necromancy. He revived the forms of the republic, but those forms were full of imperial content, for the imperium was the only thing that could make them function.

The presidency has grown and swollen the American government, and the only thing that can make it function is if a president swallows it.

The Mueller report was a dud. Not only did it find no Trump collaboration with efforts to influence the US election, nor any obstruction of justice – the allegations of obstruction of justice are just mind reading that Trump thought about killing off the Mueller investigation, but whatever he thought about, he did not in fact obstruct it, and even if he did obstruct it, which he did not, you cannot have obstruction of justice without an underlying crime.

Further, extraordinarily, the Russian government did not attempt to influence the American election – unlike one hell of a lot of other governments, or if they did, Mueller could not find any such attempts, and is lying when he claims that he did. The people being charged are accused in the Mueller report of being Russian agents, but when he actually brought charges which a hostile lawyer might cross examine, he did not charge the offender with being an agent of the Russian government, revealing that he knew that under hostile cross examination, the charge would sink like a stone. Instead the offender is charged with incomprehensible legal technicalities under vague and sweeping laws in an unsuccessful effort to get them to rat out Trump – which they were unable to do, having no connection to Trump, and no connection to the Russian government that Mueller was willing to present in court.

Mueller has been caught lying about two of the supposed Russian agents, one of whom is in fact a Mueller agent. If one lie, all lies.

The behavior of the democrats show that they are not actually interested in the contents of the Mueller report – they failed to read the minimally redacted redacted report issued for limited non public distribution. They know it is a dud. They want the attorney general removed because he is investigating them, and are just trying to link his removal to supposed Russian intervention in US elections. They are working on a coup because the perceive Trump as working on a self coup, and Trump is working on a self coup, or perceived to be working on a self coup, because the Democrats are working on a coup.

Everyone pretending there is some substance in the Mueller report is doing a Point Deer Make Horse – including the numerous republicans going along with the pretense. Point Deer Make Horse is a classic part of a coup: if people go along with the blatant lie, this shows they will go along with the coup. So everyone who talks as if the Mueller Report was not a dud, is signaling he is on board with an anti Trump coup.

So either Trump does a self coup – takes control of the FBI and turns it on his enemies, or will be removed in a coup – which will initially only arrest him, but such arrests lead to escalating drama, which eventually result in the arrested leader and various people close to him being executed.

If Trump does a self coup he will say, and perhaps believe, he is preserving the Republic, but once struggle within the political elite goes violent, it is going to get more violent. If Trump succeeds, the general public will not see a coup, but the Democrats and the left generally will, and even if they quietly submit this time, and everyone gets into line, we will be in the situation of the Roman Republic after the Gracchi: the political elite lacks cohesion, and will no longer play by mutually agreed rules, which inevitably results in political conflicts turning violent.

The Democrats have deleted God from the house of representatives. For a nation to be one nation, people need a big daddy on top. If no longer “One nation under God”, going to need a cult of personality leader to be one nation. The state religion of progressivism cannot provide for the orderly transfer of power, so we are inevitably moving towards disorderly transfer of power.

Augustus had to be deified to make the Roman government work (steel alone did not suffice) but the trouble is that when your state religion is based on flagrant lies, it is fragile so has to be repressive.

    My understanding from Qanon is that Trump’s faction was ready to do a violent coup if they failed to win the election. That the coup is already complete and the Mueller Report etc has been a managed PR process. That John McCain was executed, and various Dems are wearing ankle monitors.

            There are some very good reasons to be pissed at Jews, and some very bad reasons to be pissed at Jews, and what usually happens (that is, when there’s no central Moderator) is that, even when one starts out by dwelling exclusively on the former, the situation tends to “escalate quickly” to exclusive discussion of the latter.

            It just goes from “Jews seek to be in-grouped unilaterally” to “white women work in pornography because USG is occupied by ZIONISTS” all too rapidly. If I may flatter Jim a little bit, he’s doing an excellent job separating the wheat from the chaff, in this regard; allowing intelligent criticism of Jews, while ensuring that the debate doesn’t slide to crazy-in-the-coconut frothery.

            • Good point. What bothers me about the typical Voater/Channer answering every question with “it is (((them)))” (and that them could be any secret group, not even necessarily Jews, there was a period when many Anglos used to think it is the Jesuits) that it show they have a magical worldview where everything is caused by intent and happens exactly as intended. And that is tribal Africa level magical thinking. Dumb as fuck.

              The greatest achievement of white men was figuring out the laws of nature, precisely those “mechanical” things that are independent of intent, and if NRx seems kind of not very interested in Jews it is because we are trying to figure out the laws of nature wrt socio-political dynamics and paying less attention to how which groups are trying to play them. Because this is something few are capable of. Many can spot shape-shifters and fellowwhitemen etc. that is easier.

                • I don’t think America actually borrowed the Prussian education system. Lookie here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Realschule

                  “Criticism: class-ism
                  The German tripartite system of education has been widely criticized for separating children along class lines at a very early age. For instance, in some German states, a decision is made in the sixth or even the fourth grade about whether a child is to continue in the Gymnasium, the Realschule, or the Hauptschule. Only the Gymnasium is a university-preparatory school, so critics argue essentially a decision is made as early as the fourth grade about whether a child will be allowed to attend college.[6]

                  The system is considered so onerous outside Germany that the OECD even sent a special envoy[7] to Germany to condemn current German practice.[8] Specifically, the Brazilian expert found that German schools basically separate children according to social class, with children of academics and professionals more often being sent on to a Gymnasium, and working-class children being sent to a Realschule or a Hauptschule.”

                  Of course classism was a feature, not a bug, a feature of the classic “ständisch”, social class oriented, almost caste oriented Prussian conservatism. And rest assured, for the upper classes it was not all that military drill oriented stuff but far more independent thinking.

                  Similarly how while on the soldier level the Prussian military was all about drill and obedience, but at the officer level, they invented a very independent approach: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mission-type_tactics#Origins

                  The American public high school is not classist, in fact, it is so not classist that it seriously weirds me out that in the same classroom future lawyers who are typically the children of lawyers are sitting side by side with future burger-flippers in the high school at 18 years old. This either means the burger-flippers are taught independent thinking which is bad, or it means the future university students are not taught independent thinking which is also bad.

                • Alrenous says:

                  There is classism in the schools, but it’s done at the school level. There’s one or two high schools in D.C. or thereabouts which teach independent thinking. For the most part, Dewey et al imported only the Gymnasium because they didn’t want the peasants thinking independently.

      • Koanic says:

        The people who claim Q has been “disproven” never point to any specifics. It is an obviously silly claim, like the people who constantly claim that Trump has been caught lying.

                  Possible, I give you that. Nonetheless, to me, it is just another testament of how gullible people, when allowed to spread their hysteria and hoaxes, can hurt their own world.

                  It works both ways, by the way. When the whole pizzagate was developing, I gave it about 10 to 20% chance of actually being true — but did it in private. However, since I saw the spreading of this hoax as beneficial to the overall-good cause of spreading the idea how morally decrepit and mentally sick the leftists are (an idea that is factually true), I thought that I’d rather keep quiet and enjoy the fruits. And I did, with quite the quiet entertainment :-)!

          • Koanic says:

            My methodology for investigating Q’s legitimacy was simple. I read Gab daily, and follow various Q followers, most notably Neon Revolt. I save lots of text into my PIM, and the Q stuff gets filed under Trump or Qanon. I’ve noticed enough times confirmations that Q has privileged access to the Trump administration to convince me they are the same.

            This is the correct way to do it. Trump puts loyalty first and runs a tight ship. His inner circle doesn’t leak. He can thus run gambits that bamboozle both left and right.

            If Q is real, then he has access to huge amounts of privileged information, and the right must reevaluate its interpretation of events in light of his statements, including their takes on Sessions, Rosenstein, Mueller, etc.

            Looks to me like Trump is succeeding in destroying the credibility of CNN and the New York Times. He used the Left’s own champions, Mueller and Rosenstein, to string them along with Russiagate and then crush them. Q hinted all along that this was the goal.

            Deciding beforehand that Sessions or Mueller or Rosenstein are bad guys, and then evaluating Q’s legitimacy based on his stance on them, is a backwards epistemological method. It places too much confidence on outsider analysis.

            The realness of Q doesn’t change the truth of NRx’s principles, it merely changes the circumstances to which they must be analytically applied.

            Trump requires the right’s full support for reelection, so much that is hidden will be revealed before then, to get everyone on the same page again.

            I feel no need to organize my notes and present a defence of Q’s legitimacy. Events will prove that, as they proved Trump’s seriousness as a candidate. My time is better spent making things happen that would not otherwise eventuate.

            > Trump is surrounded by enemies who say they are his friends, and Q tells us that they are secretly his friends.

            Q is as fallible as Trump. The fact that Q is real and on Team Trump means this MUST be true. But Q knows what secret leverage Team Trump has on Dems, and the NRx does not.

            • jim says:

              Q Anon not only tells us that Trump’s enemies are his friends, he tells us Trump’s friends are his enemies.

              Events have demonstrated that things are as they seem. Q Anon is misinformation.

              As with global warming Q-Anon promised that future events would show the truth of his claims. If he had inside information, events would have confirmed some of it by now. Instead we get disconfirmation.

              If QAnon had inside information, that he had it would by now be convincingly demonstrated.

                There doesn’t appear to be anyone specializing in Q proofs here, but they certainly exist.

                As we can see from Trump’s failed attempts to flip Comey, I doubt Trump fully appreciates NRx’s lesson on how the holiness spiral tends to turn human resources against him. Q may therefore be similarly susceptible to overestimating his control over actors. However, this is not the same as Q being fake.

                • jim says:

                  If Q proofs existed, I would have seen them. As with flying saucers, if Q Anon was real, we would have compelling evidence. Q Anon’s prophecies have all turned out false. If he had inside information, would have produced some good ones.

                  Like the day of global warming judgment, his prophecies keep getting postponed.

                  The problem is not that Q Anon got some things wrong. The problem is that he has not gotten anything right. If inside information, would have made at least some accurate and surprising predictions.

                  My interpretation is tame enough to have a Wikipedia subheading [1]. It is you whose interpretation of the Bible are nutty, as Jim recently pointed out in one example. Hypocrisy, thy name is Hebrew.

                  The relevant passage is Matthew 5:38-42, part of the Sermon on the Mount to a crowd of commoners who had followed Jesus there.

                  Three specific examples are given. Two are clearly legalistic turnabout – forcing to go two miles violates Roman law, and taking the cloak violates Mosaic law. The latter explicitly applies to the poor, and the former one can presume generally burdened the poor as well, if only due to demographics. It is incredible to believe that “turning the other cheek” violates this pattern and is merely a sign of abject submission, not heretical legalistic resistance. (Heretical here in the sense of resisting a superior on the social hierarchy.)

                  This is borne out in the practice of both Jesus and Paul, when struck in the face. When an official struck Jesus’ face during his trial, he answered in a manner that brought the striker into legal jeopardy – John 18:22-23. And when Paul was struck in the face by a Jewish official in another trial, he used the same verbal tactic – Acts 23:3.

                  Both of these men were experts in the Law, not commoners. For a commoner, such verbal facility cannot be expected. However, the act of turning the other cheek would nonetheless be heretical. For example, imagine a culture in which it was customary for a father to discipline his son by slapping his face once. If the son, who had in the past routinely submitted to such blows, instead turned the other cheek, that would inform the father that the son was prepared to initiate combat. If the father then backed down publicly, this would tacitly ratify his son’s independence and manhood. And in a manner that would not expose the son to the legal jeopardy resulting from a son striking his father. Which, under the Law, carried the death penalty.

                  You don’t even attempt to make any sense: why would “clear proof” (or tentative proof) that he isn’t a bluffing con-artist full of s**t compromise his ability to “sub-communicate” with the “specific audience” that coincidentally happens to lurk on 4chan and 8chan?

                  Remember the “sealed indictments” nonsense? Remember the illegal migrant camp which ‘tardos proclaimed to be a “child sex-trafficking site” owned by the Rothschilds? (And the list goes on) Is there any hoax you *didn’t* fall for, Kookanic?

                  HAHAHA. It’s 8chan, damn it. He can say whatever the heck he wants to say on that medium. Since he provided no evidence, there is no evidence. Simple as that.

                  >Kasich’s intonation at “put to death” makes clear his shock and outrage, before he quickly changes tack.

                  You suck at cold reading. It’s not his intonation. He meant to say “laid to rest” or “put to rest” (which is a polite way of saying “dropped dead”), but clumsily uttered “put to death” because Kasich is not exactly well-spoken. There’s no outrage or shock there, just Kasich being his oddball self.

                  Moreover, the suggestion that he — of all people — is even marginally involved in a conspiracy to discreetly assassinate McCain defies credulity.

                  You’re a moron.

                  Heh, I wasn’t aware that thoughts of a cuck have such a strong bearing on you.

                  I’ll reiterate: Jesus’s Christianity was a movement within Judaism that explicitly promoted excessive meekness and lowliness.

                  What is excessive meekness/lowliness?

                  Here: take a walk at any major metropolitan downtown area in the US. Do you see all these disgusting, relatively young non-invalids, begging for money, holding up signs with quasi-BS stories? Do you understand that by merely being there, all decrepit and NOT ashamed, while not being kicked out, these scum demean not only themselves but *the very city and its citizens*, too? This is the modern, exaggerated version of what Jesus stood for, in my eyes. It is by *acquiescing* to their presence, just as one acquiesced to the pushy slave who turns his other cheek, that one truly demeans oneself. The vision of a slave who dares to expose his lowly abject state and gloats in it is what Jesus essentially preached, while declaring himself a King of the Jews (I’d go for Herod anytime!)

                  There is nothing demeaning in punching the other cheek and even the whole body of a masochistic slave. And it is that very masochism, elevated to status of holiness, that sickness — that Jesus wanted his adherents to carry within them.

                  I’ve told you before and will repeat, with slight modification: while the Pharisees were actually *protective* of Jesus/Yeshua, the Sadducees hated him and what he stood for, including his BS claims for kinghood. I would side with the latter group on that issue anytime.

                  While this on the whole seems like a topic I do not intend to touch with a ten meter pole, I have paid you the honor of watching the seven minute segment.

                  So, just to get this straight: you believe that Trump, in secret, is in complete control of the government, that he is successfully plotting to end democracy, get rid of the democrat party and crown himself god-emperor, and that Q, as an insider is spilling this info to the people, such info as that Trump actually ordered the execution of John McCain, which execution is confirmed by John Kasich saying that ‘John McCain was put to death’.

                  Bruh.

                  That is some delusional thinking. Well maybe not delusional, I can see how you might infer such a conclusion from bits of information, but it is heavy, heavy wishful thinking.

                  OK it is delusional.

                  I mean, take this John McCain business. So your belief is that everyone on the left knows Trump murdered McCain, but because they are silenced and have ankle bands on they dare not speak out about it? So when John Kasich accidentally admits John McCain was murdered, he immediately silences himself out of fear for the Trumpenführer?

                  Work out those thoughts. Follow them through. You are claiming that:
                  – the left has been defanged by Trump
                  – the left cowers in fear of Trump
                  – Trump is literally killing high-ranking Republicans
                  – We are actually secretly in control! (heyy now wouldn’t that sort of stuff appeal to gammas? 😉 )

                  If the left is willing to invent a thousand lies to get Trump impeached, not a snowball’s chance in hell they wouldn’t use the truth of Trump murdering John McCain to get him impeached.

                  So, Occam’s razor: how about… John Kasich just mixed up his expressions? As in, he meant to say ‘put to rest’, e.g. his chemo was canceled? Pretty sure it’s a mix-up I could’ve made.

                  There were a dozen of them. Q was the first one after the 2016 influx of new posters to /pol/ due to the Trump phenomenon. They seemed to follow the Q show because they were eager to believe and less experienced in board culture. It also seemed to me that people flocked to the phenomenon because contrary to the edgy nature of /pol/, Q painted a picture of comic book morality where there were no hard choices to make, no presuppositions to be critically re-evaluated, no complex issues with the nature of progressivism: just democracy-loving Patriots versus the bad guys.

                  He predicted a lot of things that came true. FBIanon made a few outrageous predictions and revealations that turned out false but he outright said he would be making a few of those in the name of plausible deniability (for instance he played to /pol by claiming the US government knew that the 3rd Reich didn’t kill all that many jews… when historical evidence overwhelmingly backs most things about the main holocaust story but is a lot more wishy washy about the gas chambers).

                  Q has not made any testably true predictions, he has said many things which are likely to have been enemy propaganda.

                  Sessions did too many hostile things to not be considered Judas. Even if you subtract Mueller and the recusal what about the Awan case… the key to locking up the whole leadership of the Democratic party. The traitor motherfucker let that go…

                  If Trump becomes king I don’t care if Sessions is an ICU invalid he needs to have his ICU ass drawn and quartered. Sessions is absolutely a Judas.

                  True. But as matter of immigration policy positions Sessions was as good or better than anyone in mainstream politics and media in the country. There’s no question that his tenure was ultimately destructive but my impression has been that you ascribe actual malicious intent to him, which doesn’t align with him hiring Stephen Miller right out of school, mentoring him, and eventually “lending” him to the Trump camping as his office quite literally wrote Trump’s excellent immigration policy paper.

                  ***

                  “Picking up the head to show to the crowd was customary, and occasionally the executioner showed disrespect to the head as well. This was the case with Charlotte Corday, a woman executed by guillotine in France in 1793 after she assassinated the revolutionary leader Jean-Paul Marat.

                  After her head was severed, the executioner smacked its cheeks while he held it aloft. To the astonishment of the crowd, Corday’s cheeks flushed and her facial expression changed into the “unequivocal marks of indignation.”

                  Most recently, in 1989, an Army veteran reported that following a car accident that he was in with a friend, the decapitated head of his friend changed facial expressions: “First of shock or confusion then to terror or grief.”

                  Both King Charles I and Queen Anne Boleyn are reported to both have showed signs of trying to speak following their beheadings (by executioners’ swords, rather than by guillotine). When he spoke out against the use of the guillotine in 1795, German researcher S.T. Sommering cited reports of decapitated heads that have ground their teeth and that the face of one decapitated person “grimaced horribly” when a physician inspecting the head poked the spinal canal with his finger.

                  Actually, over the years, I’ve developed a theory along similar lines. However, my conclusions are different, possibly diametrically opposite. In my hypothesis, the smarter and more sensible / neocortically-sensitive the person is, the more interconnected his low-level functionality is with his high-level one. Hence, in line with this, the dumber person’s severed head would be more capable of displaying signs (albeit of more primitive kind) of life than the head of the truly intelligent kind. Similarly, with sexuality and its turn-on/turn-off aspect.

                  Well, let’s consider your entire blogging career. You’ve been writing for years — 2011 to 2016 — about how you’re a Neanderthal, and how people whose facial and cranial features are similar to yours are also Neanderthals. Now, can there be a grain of truth there? Sure: everyone who’s of European or Asian ancestry (not Africans) has some degree of Neanderthal ancestry; and Europeans probably more than Asians, who have Denisovan ancestry.

                  But here’s why you’re a typical con-artist: 23andme completely disproved all that you’ve been telling people. For years, you’ve been asking them to send you pictures of their faces, and told them if they are Neanderthals, Starchildren, Cro-Magnons, Melonheads, and all that other stuff you’ve been saying. And then 23andme came along and demolished you; you took the test yourself, figured that there’s nothing exceptionally Neanderthal about you compared to other North-Western Europeans (you ain’t close to 4%), and more importantly, people started writing very nasty comments about how you’ve fooled them all these years, so you deleted all your writings.

                  You know that you are crazy:

Seriously though: if you realize that for years, you — with promotion by Tex and Vox, who’ve pretty much become “usual suspects” at this point — have been telling people that they are Neanderthals based on nothing other than their facial similarity to you, when you’re not even particularly Neanderthalic, and that all these people now have 23andme to verify that you’re simply a con-artist, perhaps you should just admit to being fundamentally untrustworthy?

                  NRx engages in binary thinking regarding Q and Trump. Q can be real and wrong, just like Trump. Trump and Q are both partially-pozzed civnats. Should NRx “Trust the plan”? That depends on what NRx trusts it to do. NRx can trust the plan to grind up the loony Left using the gears of state, because a competent civnat crew is a surprise shift in the power balance. In this, Trump is a step towards the return of kings. But the plan aims to extend the civnat “Republic”, and that is counter to the aims of NRx. This aspect of the plan is doomed to fail. So the plan is guaranteed to succeed in the short term, and to fail in the long term.

                  Trusting the people Q says to trust means trusting at least partially-pozzed civnat agents of partially-pozzed civnat leaders. Should NRx trust those people? Depends on what trust means.

                  It’s the same sort of cogdis that “loyalists” use to oppose a king’s policies – blame it all on the evil ministers. NRx is monarchical, therefore Trump must be supported, therefore Q must be denounced as fake and evil. But they are the same. And Q’s coup is a step towards the return of kings, which NRx supports.

Nevertheless, reality is weird. As for Mossad, it’s possible they were involved in 9/11, and other events on American soil. The muzzies weren’t exactly subtle about it. But Mueller’s betrayal is by far more relevant. He left the door open, and the details of who entered and why hardly matter.

                  “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.”

                  What is this nonsense about high IQ people being crazy, Koanic? I’m sure there are a few crazy ones, just as there are a few crazy people in nearly any group of humans, but high intelligence correlates _inversely_ with neuroticism and the various mental disorders. Aside from ASDs, which hardly classify as “tinfoil hattery”, I haven’t seen a single bit of evidence linking high IQ with any form of mental illness.

                  Highly-intelligent people may initially appear to be crazy to the less-intelligent who simply can’t fathom them, but those doubts are usually resolved very quickly after noticing that the supposedly-crazy person’s predictions are always right – a circumstance which is noticeably absent in your case.

                  Stupidity and gullibility go together like peanut butter and jelly. Smart people take one look at the average troofer piece and immediately spot dozens of false or misleading facts and hundreds of logical inconsistencies, and promptly dismiss it as the garbage it is.

                • jim says:

                  Highly intelligent people are apt to deviate from the consensus of less intelligent people, therefore tend to be perceived as weird. Sometimes they internalize this, which is bad for them. For a highly intelligent person to function in a group of less intelligent, he needs a certain amount of arrogance, assholery, and alpha.

                  It is a bit like peacocking. A costume that is gay on a man you could call gay, does not look gay on a man who might be able to take you in a fight.

                  Deviating from the normie consensus is great. I enjoy hearing novel theories about what’s really behind the Trump kayfabe. It’s often just idle speculation, but sometimes there are real insights to be found.

                  I don’t consider Qtardery and trooferism to be in that category. Those are also consensus narratives, and believed by people every bit as ignorant and gullible as the average CNN viewer, but who happen to be anti-establishment rather than pro-establishment. That may make them more relatable, but not more intelligent.

                • jim says:

                  If Troofers were anti establishment, they would have noticed the strange obliviousness of Mueller’s FBI to terrorists who were hilariously open about being terrorists.

                  Troofers are FBI shills. They always blame Mossad, for whom there is nothing that they could spin as evidence, and not the FBI and Mueller, for whom there is no end of stuff they could quite reasonably spin as evidence. If they want to claim the terrorists were actors, there is plenty of stuff that could reasonably be argued as evidence that the terrorists were FBI actors hired by Mueller, though in reality of course, the reason that Mueller and the FBI ignored Islamic terrorists is not because the terrorists were actors, but because the FBI had been told by Mueller and his predecessor to find white male Christian terrorists, irrespective of whether they existed or not, and ignore non white male terrorists and ignore non Christian terrorists even if the terrorists were getting in their faces.

                • Not Tom says:

                  Yup, most troofers are probably FBI shills. Pre-seeding ludicrous conspiracy theories as a way cover up real misconduct is a tactic older than feudalism. But the feeb wouldn’t keep casting those nets if they didn’t catch at least a few fish. I’ve even known one in person – from an occupational setting, 9-5 job, almost no chance he was moonlighting as a paid shill, just wasn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer.

                  Q is probably not a government operation, but the people who fall for it are of the same constitution as those who fall for trooferism. A mark is a mark, regardless of who’s running the con.

                  Well, doubtless the troofer’s catch a few suckers, that being the objective of the scam, but any time any time a troofer tells me “hail fellow anti establishment right wing racist misogynist reactionary”, he is blue pilled on women and hates Trump. He also focuses on Israeli Nationalist Jews, who are not causing us any problems and have no real motive to cause us problems, and ignores the progressive Jews overrepresented in Harvard and in the permanent government who perceive themselves as in exile in a hostile country among hostile people whose destruction they seek.

                  I take minor issue with this – Jews like Max Boot, Bill Kristol and Ben Shapiro cause us lots of problems and actively sabotage efforts to solve problems and they’re very much focused on Israeli Nationalism.

                  The key distinction is that they’re “focused” on Israeli Nationalism as a substitute for actually moving to Israel – they’d rather take out their malice for whites in ways they can tell themselves will help Israel without much worrying about whether or not they do any good.

                  My post made zero reference to consensus. The two facts that I mentioned are both well-documented and easily verifiable. Which did you take issue with and why?

                  Yes, 5 Israelis; Sivan Kurzberg, Paul Kurzberg, Yaron Shmuel, Oded Ellner and Omer Marmari, working for the shell company Urban Moving Systems, were seen dancing, high-fiving, and celebrating as they filmed the burning twin towers. In their van, police found $4,700 in cash, box cutters, and multiple foreign passports.

                  They were subsequently arrested by Bergen County NJ police, imprisoned, and interrogated for 71 days before returning to Israel. Paul Kurzberg initially refuses to rane a lie detected test, then finally took it after 10 weeks and failed it.

                  “When the men were transferred to jail, the case was transferred out of the FBI’s Criminal Division, and into the bureau’s Foreign Counterintelligence Section, which is responsible for espionage cases, ABCNEWS has learned.

                  One reason for the shift, sources told ABCNEWS, was that the FBI believed Urban Moving may have been providing cover for an Israeli intelligence operation.

                  After the five men were arrested, the FBI got a warrant and searched Urban Moving’s Weehawken, N.J., offices.

                  The FBI searched Urban Moving’s offices for several hours, removing boxes of documents and a dozen computer hard drives. The FBI also questioned Urban Moving’s owner. His attorney insists that his client answered all of the FBI’s questions. But when FBI agents tried to interview him again a few days later, he was gone.

                  Three months later 2020’s cameras photographed the inside of Urban Moving, and it looked as if the business had been shut down in a big hurry. Cell phones were lying around; office phones were still connected; and the property of dozens of clients remained in the warehouse.

                  The owner had also cleared out of his New Jersey home, put it up for sale and returned with his family to Israel.”

                  “Vince Cannistraro, a former chief of operations for counterterrorism with the CIA who is now a consultant for ABCNEWS, said… many people in the U.S. intelligence community believed that some of the men arrested were working for Israeli intelligence. Cannistraro said there was speculation as to whether Urban Moving had been “set up or exploited for the purpose of launching an intelligence operation against radical Islamists in the area, particularly in the New Jersey-New York area.”…”

                  Yes, the first person believed to have been killed on 9/11, seated directly in front of one of the hijackers, was an Israeli-American named Daniel Lewin who was a former member of Sayeret Maktal, a special operations unit of the Israeli Military Intelligence Directorate with a long history of operating behind enemy lines by disguising themselves as jihadists.

                  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sayeret_Matkal

                  To repeat my point- this doesn’t mean Israel was involved in 9/11 (it merely means that the response from Israeli intelligence agents to thousands of Americans dying was delirious joy that caused grown men to literally spin and dance in the streets), but it does mean that comparing the possibility of Mossad prior knowledge of the event to “terrorist actors hired by the FBI” is unfair. Apples and oranges.

                  They were charged with overstaying their work visas. All the rest is rumors based on nothing at all. They attracted suspicion because watching the trade towers burning while speaking a foreign language, and were investigated as suspected terrorists. They were instead charged with overstaying work visas, and left in a hurry because illegally doing business in the united states. You are supposed to leave promptly when caught overstaying your work visa.

                  If they were actual spies, their visas would have had every i dotted and every t crossed.

                  Ben Shapiro is a bit more special, because he’s religious. Nonetheless, the above still applies to him. In some sense, probably more, because he comes from a Modern Orthodox background, and most these guys have reinterpreted a lot of Orthodox dogma to suit the modern Western lifestyle and sensibilities, including having women de facto emancipated. Their fertility rate — which inches ever so closer to the American Jewish secular one — is a proof of how cucked their ideology is. For instance, Ben has only 1 sibling. He only has 2 children, as far as I’m aware. For 35 y.o. Orthodox Jew it is unimpressive.

                  The claim of multiple tickets appears in the report, but it appears to be a lie – an FBI lie, not a troofer lie.

                  You have established, assuming the scan to be real, that the FBI wants very much to find someone not brown and not Muslim involved in 9/11, and that they found some suspicious Israelis – though not, however, suspicious enough to charge them with any of the things that they wanted to find.

                  But nothing that they found is nearly as suspicious as the FBI itself turning a blind eye to the alleged hijackers.

                  “According to [redacted], one of the males appeared to be taking still photographs and video of the other males with the WTC in the background. All of the males appeared to be jovial in that they smiled, hugged one another, and gave high-fives (see attached photos).”

                  [*That one of the Israelis intended to fly back to Israel the day after the attack is an odd and suspicious coincidence, but it is not “multiple tickets to multiple foreign destinations” Notice also that his flight was booked several months earlier, and it is unlikely that the conspirators knew the exact date of the attack several months in advance.*]

                  And one of the most interesting things in the entire report comes on Page 39: a DIFFERENT New Jersey moving company, Classic International Movers, was believed by the FBI to have been used by one of the 9/11 hijackers: the employees that the FBI interviewed were all Israeli nationals who had served in the Israeli milita

                  [and why did the FBI believe this? Assuming it to be true, the hijackers would not need a friendly moving agency that was part of the conspiracy, because they were not carrying anything suspicious, so the alleged coincidence, real or imagined, suggests a far stretch on the part of the FBI – an FBI determination to implicate someone not brown and not Muslim.]

If these documents are legit, then the troofers are correct when they claim that the FBI considered the Israelis to be, well, “a bit out of place” in the whole affair.

                  Jim, extraordinary claims about cheerfulness and possible foreknowledge are indeed all over section 5. E.g., pages 54-55, 62, 86.

                  However, let’s cut to the chase: in pages 58-59 it is determined by all the investigative forces that the suspicions purporting to criminally link the Israelis to terrorism against the WTC were absolutely unfounded (for some strange reason, troofers always neglect to mention that specific part):

                  https://archive.org/stream/DancingIsraelisFBIReport/fbi%20report%20section%205#page/n57/mode/2up

                  As far as I’m concerned, that strongly suggests that Mossad was *not* involved, at least not in a way that can be plausibly proven. Sundry fears were raised, the FBI was paranoid as f**k, but ultimately nothing damning was actually discovered. The FBI desperately tried to pin the blame for 9/11 on some non-Muslim Caucasians, but the Israelis were of no avail in this regard. Case closed.

                  >The FBI was trying to implicate someone not brown

                  The report and witness statements continually describes the suspects as “dark-skinned males”. Additionally, Jews are a significantly higher ranking protected victim class than Muslims in the US.

                  The statement I made was not that Mossad carried out 9/11 or knew about 9/11 ahead of time, but that questions about a measure of Israeli awareness of the attack do not fall into the same category as holographic planes and hired actor pretend terrorists. That’s been shown several times over by an objective standard. No hired actor terrorist in a moving van with no moving equipment, nor 5 holographic planes with forged student travel cards, were imprisoned and interrogated by the FBI for 71 days.

                • jim says:

                  > Jews are a significantly higher ranking protected victim class than Muslims in the US.

                  Jews are a protected class. Israeli Jews are not.

                  Some, like Ben Shapiro, try to have it both ways, keeping Israel and Israeli Jews under the Jewish umbrella, and supporting the leftist position for everything and everyone except Israel, and this approach is to some extent successful – but we are seeing increasing pushback. Recollect the drama over moving the US embassy to the Israeli capital.

                  Protection for Israeli Jews is mostly supported by Democrats, but there is increasing and vociferous resistance to this on the left and within the Democratic party.

                  Similarly, recollect the Crown Heights pogrom. Orthodox Jews, like Israeli Jews, are losing the Jewish exception.

                  > in pages 58-59 it is determined by all the investigative forces that the suspicions purporting to criminally link the Israelis to terrorism against the WTC were absolutely unfounded

                  In the first moments there was suspicion of terrorist charges but those were quickly dropped, obviously no one thinks they were in the towers at the time or flying planes. As ABC cited at the time, once they were actually imprisoned the case was transferred from the FBI criminal division to the foreign counterintelligence division.

                • Eynon says:

                  Regarding the new theory that this was a conspiracy by the FBI trying to cast blame on Jews instead of Muslims- to the limited extent that this deserves to be given brain processing power, why did the FBI not release the photos that they took? They show them posing with their arms around each other in front of the burning WTC, celebrating and pointing at it- if the goal was to cause negative feelings among the public toward these Jews, why not release the pictures?

                • jim says:

                  Maybe because these photos do not in fact show anything of the kind?

                  That troofers and the FBI are so excited that one of the alleged hijackers used an Israeli moving company, while ignoring the FBI ignoring the hilariously open alleged hijackers, tells me that not only do troofers have a hard on for detecting Israeli complicity, they have a severe allergy against detecting Mueller and FBI complicity.

                  That allergy indicates troofers are Mueller/FBI shills, therefore, the priorities of the troofers are indicative of the priorities of the FBI and Mueller.

                • shaman says:

                  Yeah, Eynon. Which is why I explicitly linked the page (58) that says:

                  “Furthermore, Newark and New York determined that none of the Israelis were actively engaged in clandestine intelligence activities in the United States.”

                  I briefly went over the 7 sections. My conclusion is that paranoia was extreme (understandably), but there was simply no — or no sufficient — “there” there, so they had no choice but to drop the Israeli connection completely, as agonizing as that must have felt to people hunting for a non-Muslim culprit. Your conclusion may differ.

                  Beware of changing the goalposts, Eynon. Seems to me that the more evidence is uncovered, the less culpable Israel appears.

                  It goes from “Israel did 9/11” to “Israel didn’t actually do 9/11, but it was nevertheless involved in it” to “Israel was not actually involved in 9/11, but some Israelis were celebrating it” to anything that may serve to distract from the fact that Islam seeks to conquer the world by bloodshed and the Cathedral is in bed with Islam.

                  (Well, to be fair, you initially started from the 3rd proposition, so maybe you didn’t shift the goalposts. It just looks like a whole lot of people are grasping at straws to connect Israel to 9/11 in more or less disingenuous ways, for the reasons outlined by Jim)

                  “recollect the Crown Heights pogrom”

                  The slightest bit of research illuminates the behaviour of the blacks in this case. I’ve never heard a more disgusting, anti-black example of institutional Jewish privilege.

                  Anyone who takes the side of the Jews in the Crown Heights case is a Jew themself.

                • jim says:

                  Nuts.

                  The Crown Heights Pogrom demonstrates that though Jews outrank non Jewish whites, blacks outrank Jews. Recent events illustrate hispanics elbowing Jews and blacks, and it is now clear that Muslims outrank Jews.

                  Similarly, though females outrank males, and women and gays are elbowing each other to decide which of them has higher status, trannies outrank females.

                  When you tell me that the Crown Heights Pogrom reflects Jewish privilege, the privilege that so enraged the blacks was that the Jews had better services than the blacks – which services they organized and paid for. So, if you tell me that Crown Heights Pogrom represents Jewish privilege, that implies that black people are entitled to trash the white people toilets at Starbucks, and do so without buying coffee, because Starbucks toilets are white privilege as much as the Jewish ambulance service in Crown heights were Jewish privilege.

                  When people get indignant about separate drinking fountains and toilets for black and whites in the Old South, they forget that whites paid for both, and the reason the black drinking fountains and toilets were generally in poor shape was that blacks tended to trash them.

                  Jews in Crown Heights organized their own ambulance service because the government ambulance service did not work – and the largest reason that the government ambulance service did not work was in Crown Heights that Jews paid for it and blacks trashed it. That was Jewish privilege in Crown Heights. The Jewish privilege that led to the Crown Heights riots was that a Jewish ambulance decided it was more important to save a Jewish life, than to give blacks adequate opportunity to murder and rob Jewish ambulance workers – very similar to white privilege and male privilege.

                  The problem is the ambiguity inherent in the phrase “high IQ”. From 100 IQ to midwit IQ, everything generally improves. From midwit to ultra high IQ, there’s scarcely enough data to establish correlations, and the demographics of the fatter portion of the bell curve outweigh the thin tail. So this rule doesn’t apply to the context of the discussion, which was UHIQ tendency to deviate from sane norms.

                  Maybe the reason they did not release these photos earlier is that the photos would blow their story.

                  The USS liberty incident occurred when the US was not allied to Israel, and there have been plenty of incidents of armies firing on their own forces, let alone neutral forces, in the fog of war.

                  Then you should have looked in the direction of Eliot Engel and his response to the resolution initially condemning anti-semitism (clearly directed toward Omar) being watered down into a generic tolerance resolution that mentioned a score of victim groups.

                  And they are not shown hugging or high fiving, though we cannot tell whether or not they are smiling.

                  And, under heat, you say that they FBI is merely telling us the photos depict the Dancing Mossad Agents being jovial, despite the total absence of any jovial body language. That is not a defense of your position, it is not a defense of trooferism, it is not a defense of yourself. It is a defense of the FBI. When I say “The FBI lied” you hear me say “You lied”, and instead of bringing a defense of trooferism, a defense of the position being argued, bring a defense of the good character of the FBI.

                  The way Motte and Bailey works as a fallacious argument is that one day you truthfully say you won the Motte argument, and then the next day you pretend you won the Bailey argument. But this only works if it is your argument, not the FBI’s argument, only works emotionally and as a deceptive fallacy if you are the FBI.

                  “Yes, there are multiple unrelated witnesses who stated to law enforcement that they saw the Israelis horsing around, celebrating, smiling, high-fiving, posing for pictures and acting jovially.”

                  And 99% of the MSM was insisting for months that Russia “hacked our elections” when no such thing was true.

                  Same kind of bullshit. The Cathedral wasn’t going to let either the FBI (and their masters) or the Saudis take unambigious blame for 9/11 so they had to muddy the waters.

                  Odd that.

                  Looks like our sole source for dancing, high fiving, and hugging is the FBI claim that they took photos of themselves – and the FBI lied when it claimed that the photos taken from the camera showed high fiving and hugging.

                  You are still pulling a Motte and Bailey – retreating from dancing, hugging, and high fiving, to “jovial mood”, while pretending the two are equivalent, and that therefore the FBI did not lie. Further comments that equivocate between the two will be silently deleted.

            Since you love the glow-in-the-darks so much, consider the following, straight from the horse’s mouth:

            “[A] hypothesis can never be proved by the enumeration of even a large body of evidence consistent with that hypothesis, because the same body of evidence may also be consistent with other hypotheses. A hypothesis may be disproved, however, by citing a single item of evidence that is incompatible with it.”

            That’s your pizzagate right there.

          • shaman says:

            The principle, alluded to above, is quite simple.

            1. Come up with your own crackpot theory that confirms your audience’s expectations, or even better, its hopes.

            2. Frame said theory in esoteric terms. E.g., “This is a highly classified matter that only insiders like myself would know anything about,” or just “Keep digging, anon.”

            3. Pull off a CR, and ceremonially announce that everyone already agrees that your theory merits discussion and exploration, and is legitimate. Accuse skeptics of being paid shills who seek to suppress the troof.

            4. Congratulations: people who don’t grasp the expediency of the Scarcity Principle — and can’t recognize its employment in real time — are now positively convinced that they possess profound insight, despite it merely being kook bait that any bored troll with a modicum of creativity could devise.

                I read through all the pizzagate documents a while back. The people involved are definitely weird, very possibly engaged in something shady, and I would not want them for neighbors or indeed in the same state. The problem with Pizzagate as it is commonly formulated though is that the investigators do not have a single specific identifiable victim. Particularly in the aftermath of the Catholic Church and Boy Scout events, that calls the premise into question – victims would be much more willing to admit it, given that it’s been in the news as something that has happened to others.

                Also the Catholic and BSA cases tend to be cases of bureaucracies protecting themselves, and the perpetrators knowing how to manipulate those bureaucracies. The basic premise of the hyper-evil secret conspiracy manipulating everything has not had any supporting evidence turn up.

                (“But, you see, that’s proof that they’re so evilly competent! They’ve successfully hidden ALL the evidence of their activities!” Uh-huh)

              • shaman says:

                >is a little bit more there to pizzagate then all the others.

                There is no more and no less to it; at best, it’s 5% signal and 95% noise.

                >Podesta’s use of “pizza” “walnut sauce” “hot dogs” etc. in his emails don’t make sense in context if read literally… they are code for something.

                The references to “walnut sauce” and “hot dogs” make perfect sense in their original contexts. The references to pizza, specifically, may be construed as a code for something. However, they may also indicate that Podesta, who is half Italian and half Greek, is a “foodie.” Have you ever met a self-described foodie? That’s exactly how they talk about various foods. So this is neither here nor there, and even if pizza happens to be a code for something, it is by far more likely to reference dude-weed-lmao than what 4chan and reddit claim it references.

                >The Podesta’s brothers taste in art is interesting…

                The Podestas are degenerates, there’s no denying that. Then again, compared to the average 8channer, they may well be paragons of moral decency and virtue. To see the folks on /pol/ denouncing the Podestas for being sickos is hilarious. If hypocrisy were a sport, chan-tard pizzagaters would certainly receive a medal.

                >James Alefantis connections are mighty interesting for a pizza shop owner

                No, they aren’t. If you’re a famous, successful, lifelong chef in Washington, D.C., you’re inevitably going to be well-connected to the swamp (that’s your base of operations, after all); and if, additionally, you’re a flaming and flamboyant faggot, you’ll probably make quite a few close friends among the top Democrats. Indeed, it would be quite surprising if Alefantis did *not* have those connections.

                If pizzagate was merely the humble suggestion that “The Democrats are a bunch of depraved weirdos,” I’d say – sure, of course they are. Duh. As it is, though, pizzagate is total crap.

                  I’ve yet to see any evidence-based argument that proves that anything in the pizzagate narrative (as narrated by the towering geniuses and expert sleuths on Reddit, Voat, etc.) is real. It all comes crashing down on close inspection. And I’ve seen lots of empirical and logical refutations of that narrative, suggesting that it’s the work of clever trolls, and nothing more than that.

                  Do we need to (once again) go over the leaked Podesta emails, and analyse them one by one? That can be done (again), but it might be a distraction from more fruitful endeavors.

                • jim says:

                • shaman says:

                  Well Alf, I don’t dispute the metaphorical (which, by extension, may as well be literal) demon worship claim. I dispute the notion that various pizza parlors in D.C. are used to trade child sex-slaves, which is blatantly false.

                  When Alex Jones alarmingly reported that Hillary Clinton and Barry Soetoro both “smell like sulfur,” I chuckled, and still chuckle to this very day about that.

                  Not looking good when you’re using rhetoric like this. “You’d expect this guy to be connected to all prominent Dems because he’s a celebrity chef” to an implication that he runs one of “various pizza parlors” (implying low status pizza by the slice place that sells to a lunch crowd and drunks leaving bars).

                  Either might be right – both absolutely aren’t and the rhetorical trick in the second is indicative of knowing dishonesty.

Regardless of Comet Ping Pong’s status, there is simply no evidence that it’s involved in whatever pizzagaters accuse it. I want facts, not roundabout casuistry.

                  So what evidence did the FBI have against Hatfill? There was none, so the agency did a Hail Mary, importing two bloodhounds from California whose handlers claimed could sniff the scent of the killer on the anthrax-tainted letters. These dogs were shown to Hatfill, who promptly petted them. When the dogs responded favorably, their handlers told the FBI that they’d “alerted” on Hatfill and that he must be the killer.

                  You’d think that any good FBI agent would have kicked these quacks in the fanny and found their dogs a good home. Or at least checked news accounts of criminal cases in California where these same dogs had been used against defendants who’d been convicted — and later exonerated. As Pulitzer Prize-winning Los Angeles Times investigative reporter David Willman detailed in his authoritative book on the case, a California judge who’d tossed out a murder conviction based on these sketchy canines called the prosecution’s dog handler “as biased as any witness that this court has ever seen.”

                  Instead, Mueller, who micromanaged the anthrax case and fell in love with the dubious dog evidence, personally assured Ashcroft and presumably George W. Bush that in Steven Hatfill the bureau had its man. Comey, in turn, was asked by a skeptical Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz if Hatfill was another Richard Jewell — the security guard wrongly accused of the Atlanta Olympics bombing. Comey replied that he was “absolutely certain” they weren’t making a mistake.

                  If people got their positions by ability to move heavy sword around faster than the reflexes of other people seeking the position, as William the Marshal acquired his wife, his lands and his job as Marshal, we would at least be selecting for reaction time, which correlates better with IQ than the SAT does these days.

                  Committees sometimes work better when, as is often the case with the board of directors, their own money depends on choosing a smart man.

                  That’s not true at all. Play a 3+ player game and see who wins – the typical pattern is that the feared player never wins because the other players gang up on him knowing that if they don’t band together the better player (in this instance the smarter person) will beat them individually and win but if they gang up on him then they each have a shot to win.

                  Seems you don’t know how intelligence works. The smart thing to do is not to look fearsome. Which, if you’re smart enough, is not difficult.

                  Part of doing this IRL is to look fearsome in games, so by contrast you look even more like a teddy bear IRL. Or vice versa, e.g. I deliberately throw poker games and Diplomacy because winning these games isn’t worth having anyone work out how amazingly good at lying I am.

                  appointed by a committee

                  The point of stupid committees is to be easily manipulated. Committees aren’t real and don’t have power. They have to follow a ‘thought leader’. The thing to do is to pick say eight complete idiots and one lesser idiot they all look up to, and make sure the lesser idiot’s mind is in your pocket. You achieve total control but all the responsibility is dissipated. Plus the lesser idiot gets to feel important and talk himself up to the press and so on.

                  Of course occasionally the committee is picked wrong and their decision goes off the rails, but that’s simply a cost of doing business the proggie way.

                  Governments and corporations do not find it at all easy to accomplish meritocracy

                  Among the problems: It is substantially easier for people to cooperate if they are at roughly the same IQ level – hard to cooperate across a twenty point IQ gap.

                  A committee effectively acts as a stupid person, dumber than its individual members.

                • Koanic says:

                  Past a certain point, IQ is poorly correlated with generic success because honesty * heresy is negatively correlated with generic success, and high IQ is correlated with heresy, and some of the high IQ care more about honesty than success.

                  In an advanced holiness spiral with a bio-Leninist component, high IQ itself is eventually targeted as heretical, due to the translation problem across a 2-SD gap.

                  This results in the amusing spectacle of the intelligent Leftist Jewish man getting devoured for his high IQ. The Jews had a hand in starting this process, of course, as the Weinstein biography of Bob Dylan’s life illustrates in its deconstruction of last-generation’s leftist square, whose character is the focus of “Ballad of a Thin Man”.

                The DC jury pool hates Trump and loves the swamp… that is the most difficult problem if they are all acquitted it does no good and for Trump to order military tribunals and for that to go over he would need an ironclad public reveal of something much like pizzagate.

    Over two years into his presidency* you’re still preoccupied with its day to day political events. What would it take to convince you that Trump is irrelevant? The step-change upward in illegal immigration is apparently not sufficient and I wonder if anything would be.

    Trump did one and only one thing: bought a little time, a little delay in the inexorable process. The US and the West in general are beyond saving. Get out while you can.

  9. Bubbasmith says:

    Point of correction: the Mueller report confirms that Russia DID try to forge relationships and collude with the Trump campaign, but was rebuffed or ignored each time. It’s to be expected that the Russians would try, as its in their interest to do so and such is life in the international system. What I think the report neglects is that the obama admin tried to facilitate their efforts to entrap Trump and his campaign.

    • The Cominator says:

      Its a lie that the Russians were trying to do this, US and Five Eyes intelligence agents maybe some of who were originally from Russia and who pretended to be Russian agents tried to do this in order to try to frame Trump.

    • jim says:

      Nuts

      The Mueller report “confirms” no such thing.

      Mueller is making shit up. One lie, all lies. Show us the evidence. Don’t show us Mueller telling us that there is evidence.

      If Russia got involved in US politics, Mueller would have charges in court.

      It is analogous to “A rape on campus”. The point of the “Rape on Campus” story was that the University of Virginia was dismissing rape victims. They had thirty rape accusations and in each case chose no disciplinary action – therefore either all rape complaints are false, as near to all of them as make no difference, or the University of Virginia is ignoring an enormous rape problem. But they went with a case where the “victim” had made no complaint.

      Which tells you that all the other complaints smelled even worse than the complaint they went with.

      That the cases that went to court were frivolous and involved no charges or accusations of Russian government involvement, should tell you that Mueller’s evidence in all their other allegations is even worse.

    • shaman says:

      >It’s to be expected that the Russians would try, as its in their interest to do so and such is life in the international system.

      Colluding with the Trump campaign *directly* would have been stupid; Putin is astute and experienced enough to avoid newb blunders of this sort, as they are prone to massively backfire. If the Russians did interfere for Trump, they could rather have done it by instigating an online influence campaign, and it would be excruciatingly difficult (basically next to impossible) to pinpoint the specific culprits and link them to Moscow. Five Eyes is not omnipotent; an anonymous Kremlin-paid troll temporarily residing in e.g. Micronesia and going “behind 7 proxies” cannot be successfully identified. This gives a heavy clout of plausible deniability to any government that seeks to interfere in another’s politics, be it Russia or even Israel.

      In 2020, expect many governments, and probably private companies too, to utilize online psyops to influence American public opinion; don’t expect the FBI to come up with anything other than rough speculation about it all.

      • jim says:

        But the Russians did not try, or if they did, Mueller could not find anything plausible.

          Personally, I take it for granted that all governments, or nearly all of them, engage in cyberspace influence campaigns aimed at foreign audiences. Regarding the 2020 elections, I have little doubt that Iran will try to interfere in favor of the Democrats, for instance. It’s a matter of scope and expertise, for the most part.

At the moment they get to be deemed white or nonwhite as convenient, and this privilege is starting to piss off the brown wing of the Democrat party. “Israeli Collusion” could result in the political coalition fracturing on racial lines, which is the natural order of things and bound to happen sooner or later. If they try “Israeli collusion”, going to happen sooner.

There are a bunch of reasonable cloud hosting services in Hong Kong, with the huge advantage that they speak English, of a sort, and market to English speaking people.

Whites always have a state religion, so always have to have closed entry to the priesthood of the state religion, an archbishop, and a grand inquisitor.

    Beginning of story for The Cominator (who is its protagonist):

    “It’s the first day of 2036!” I told my slave.

    “Shh,” she mumbled; “I’m still sleeping.”

    “Oh, come on; don’t you want to get up early with me and welcome the new year?”

    “I welcomed it last night,” she grumbled; “leave me alone now.”

    “You were just watching the ball drop on your phone; that doesn’t count!”

    “It does for me, so go away. Wake me up in an hour and half, okay?” My slave turned over onto her other side and went back to sleep.

    I headed into the kitchen to make myself some coffee. Watching the steam rise from the pot I wondered how I’d be spending the day with my slave. Perhaps she’d be willing to clean the bathroom while I did some reading, but probably not. She’d mentioned needing another pair of shoes, so we’d no doubt be heading to the mall at some point.

    I chuckled, remembering Our Mentor Jim’s advice to “spank” disobedient slaves. Several months ago I’d finally gotten to the point of following Jim’s instructions … and she’d said, “Stop! I’m really NOT in the mood for this right now!” So that had been that.

    On the whole, though, I’m quite fond of my slave. I enjoy the way her brow creases as she strives to remember some sub-detail of a conversation she’d had with someone else’s slave that morning, a conversation she’s already been repeating to me for the past thirteen-or-so minutes — one which doesn’t seem to be approaching its presumably dramatic climax.

    And I enjoy opening jars for her when she’s unable to open them, and taking down objects from high shelves for her – things she can’t reach. Sometimes I suspect that she makes a point of reaching for things that she knows to be beyond her grasp – so that her T-shirt will rise up high enough to reveal the Antifa-sign tattooed below her navel, which inevitably results in my tickling her there.

    My slave always giggles when I tickle her Antifa-sign. This strengthens and perhaps in some hard-to-articulate way deepens our Master-Slave relationship.

      • Friendly Fred says:

        Cominator, you made me smile above by imagining a doling-out of attractive leftist women as slave-companions to the victorious rightist heroes after the war has been won, so I was imagining what it would be like to be the possessor of such a slave.

        Of course I’m imagining my own likely experience were I to possess one, but I attribute this experience to you because you, not I, will be a victorious rightist hero rewarded with a slave-companion — and in order to make you smile as well.

        Eternal Hebrew, I don’t think that Jim’s being ironic about it — I just think that he and his girlfriend are having fun — sounds cute and makes Jim all the more lovable.

        • Eli says:

          >“It does for me, so go away. Wake me up in an hour and half, okay?” My slave turned over onto her other side and went back to sleep.

          *That’s* your mental image of a *slave* woman? Oh man, you really need to free up your mind there.

          If anything, that’d be ME saying this to the woman.

          • Friendly Fred says:

            Eli, it’s a humorously-intended imagining of how a supposed slave-woman would inevitably become a wife, with one’s relationship to her being pretty much that of husbands to wives in ordinary marriages. So the repeated uses of the word “slave” are supposed to make you smile.

            Augustine lived for years with a “concubine” with whom he had a son — she was basically his wife, and he says so (in the Confessions). I don’t know whether “concubine” in these translations is supposed to indicate that the woman was legally his slave or whether it’s just supposed to mean something like “live-in girlfriend” though. Presumably the word in the Latin original is almost the same.

            • Eli says:

              Fred: yes, I think I got it. And yes, I partially agree that even a nominally slave woman, once she becomes de facto wife, can get away with much more than just an ordinary slave.

              However, it’s also a personality thing. In other words, if a man isn’t the kind to let things slide and, in fact, is the one who is demanding, there is going to be much less of that fresh attitude from the wife/slave.

        • kawaii_kike says:

          Lucky Cominator gets his own fanfic.
          But in reality any former antifa bitch would need to be disciplined a lot harder than simply tickling her. I hope the actual Cominator keeps his women in check better than his fictional counterpart.

          The connotation of spanking seems too playful. If someone told they spanked their wife, I would think they were just kinky fucks. And the connotation of beating conjures images of a man pummeling his wife with closed fists. Hitting and slapping conjure the appropriate connotations of stern but appropriate force.

          Don’t describe Jim’s sexual domination of his women as “cute”, the domination of women is a serious issue not some quirky fetish.

  20. It’s very clear now that Nixon wanted to drain the swamp / remove the Cathedral and the swamp / Cathedral couped him w/ Watergate because he was stupid enough to take the blame for something he did not order. He had this old-fashioned loyalty, feeling having to defend anything anybody does in his government. This would be a virtue if it would have actually been his government, but it wasn’t and he didn’t notice that.

    The big question is now if Trump > Nixon.

  21. Friendly Fred says:

    Globalism is like Roman Imperialism — Progressivism’s service to the present NeoRoman Empire is comparable to Christianity’s service to the Roman Empire in the 4th Century?

    So the present NeoRoman Empire might in principle function without Progressivism just as the Roman Empire of the 4th Century might in principle have functioned without Christianity? But in fact the NeoRoman Empire in inextricably Progressive just as the Roman Empire of the 4th Century was inextricably Christian?

    (Possibly Jim’s Blue and Red Empires correspond to the Roman Imperial bureaucracies and military establishments respectively?)

    And the ethnic nationalisms of Europe and the US are comparable to the Germanic, proto-Slavic, Pictish, etc. anti-Roman-Imperial tribal forces of the 4th Century?

    Secular Jews tending (as would be expected) to be loyal servants of the NeoRoman Empire?

    And America might become a New Thing but is at present a scene of struggle between Roman and Euro-barbarian tendencies? Its possible New Thingishness perhaps centering on space-colonization?

    (I like the idea of Globalism as NeoRoman Imperialism or as the persistence and perhaps reflowering — following the Enlightenment — of the Roman Imperial Spirit because the historical drama’s more enjoyable when the antagonists are all honorable in their own way.)

    • jim says:

      There is an important difference between progressivism and Christianity. Christianity was stabilized against doctrinal innovation, and holiness spirals when they occurred were directed into harmless activities that were merely ridiculous and self destructive, like Simeon Stylites, rather than ridiculous and destructive. The very holy were sent off into hermitages and such like, rather than getting into the Archbishop’s palace.

      Gibbon ridicules the emperor patronizing the ascetics, but there were far more dangerous holy men around, and the emperor probably had to patronize someone for superior holiness.

      An imperial religion is unavoidable. An imperial religion that is insane and rapidly becoming more insane is avoidable, and will self destruct in the near future. The only question is how many of us will it take with it in its death throes?

      The Roman empire and the holy Roman empire had warriors on top. We have priests on top. Priests have difficulty restraining holiness spirals, and holiness spirals are inevitable when you have open entry into the priesthood.

    • The Cominator says:

      If globalism is the goal then progressivism is supposed to make it work by making differences between groups heretical the problem is this doesn’t work.

      • Friendly Fred says:

        It’s the Feminist side of Progressivism that really bugs me, which is why I like Jim’s essays so much — he’s primarily interested in sex (as well as in natural male class-differences) rather than in ethnicities (apparently the major interest of writers such as Zman).

        Not that ethnicity is altogether insignificant. But sex and natural class (Priest-Warrior-Merchant-Peasant/Laborer) go deeper.

        The Feminist aspect of Progressivism is what bugs me most because I like women a lot so it’s upsetting that they’re cruelly prevented from being sweet and helpful, which is God’s intention for them and their own natural inclination (which I guess has to be nurtured and disciplined if it’s to be fully expressed, just as the natural Warrior realizes his Warrior-potential only if he’s guided through the rigors of Warrior Academy).

        Maybe the Feminist side of Progressivism is just the logical limit of an equalism that starts by denying class-differences then goes on to deny ethnic differences … so that stopping short of the denial of sex-difference would seem arbitrary to those who have gone that far already.

        (Hmm … the Priestly class empowers itself by convincing people that there are no class-differences … how does that work?)

        • The Cominator says:

          Feminism is the purity/holiness spiral of it taking over. Of course they’d do better meet less resistance etc. if they abandoned feminism but the internal logic of a religion of egalitarian insanity means they can’t do that.

    >CR gets treated better than this.

    CR has been bullycided a trillion times, but he’s too dense to figure out what’s going on, so everyone eventually got tired of dealing with him, and he’s been relegated to the blog’s resident “sad clown.” One need not invest much energy in trolling the sad clown, because his mere presence is a self-troll.

    >Koanic’s only crime was having kooky and eccentric ideas

    Kookanic’s crime (in the internet sense; IRL he’s been up to some other stuff) is persisting in kooky, eccentric, *idiotic*, and *dangerous* ideas, which he does with unwavering conceit — hubris, even — and extreme condescension. If he were mentally capable of dismounting from his high horse of clever-silliness, there wouldn’t be a need for “Now I’m your latrine.” Unjustifiably arrogant noses must be stomped to the ground, repeatedly, until the lesson is learned, if ever that happens.

    • kawaii_kike says:

        That Kookanic murdered some random Jew or whatever can be tolerated, though. That’s not his biggest issue, from the perspective of healthy participation on this blog. His biggest issue, as I’ve pointed out time and again, is his *unjustified arrogance*, in that he holds dumb ideas, and offhandedly dismisses the more intelligent ideas of more intelligent people. Case-in-point is pizzagae and Qanon; in both instances, not only was he wrong (which is, of course, totally forgivable – everyone’s wrong sometimes), but extremely conceited too. That’s why he receives backlash.

That’s part of life, for better or worse.

              When someone wisely remarks, “Kookanic is a little fag-boy who’s wrong about everything” in direct response to Kookanic being a little fag-boy who’s wrong about everything, that’s not the same thing as being “volunteer police.” It is more like being a particularly enthusiastic morale booster.

                  B was very high-value. I ended up fundamentally not agreeing with some of his positions (almost never made said disagreement explicit, but my positions on this blog fairly clearly show that I have a diverging view; plus, I was fairly new here and still had been fleshing it all out for myself), but it was excellent to have him here. His departure has more to do with his disagreement with our host than anything else.

                  My hypothesis is that Jim would’ve rather paid a sum equivalent to a decent whiskey bottle vs physically shipping it to him. Protection of identity is really important — certainly, to our host. Perhaps, Jim can agree/disagree? And B took it as a sign of Jim not wanting to come through on his commitment.

                  I definitely would’ve liked him to come back. It is an excellent forum, nothing else like elsewhere, after all. I hope we can make it happen someday.

              • shaman says:

                A tl;dr of Winegate for those who don’t remember or haven’t been there.

                Jim and B had a bet about the war in Aleppo (the details of which are irrelevant) which, believe it or not, Jim lost. So, a wine bottle found its way to Israel. Alas, to claim it, B had to pay a tariff to the Israel Customs Authority. He was unwilling to do that, so Jim generously offered to compensate him with the sum of the tariff, in advance. Inexplicably and rudely, B refused. Shortly thereafter, he ragequit the blog.

                That is a prime example of chutzpah. Still, B had more IQ in his pompous arse than people like Kookanic have in their entire cerebral cortex. If only for that reason, it was fun to have him on.

                • Eli says:

                  Oh, I remember. Was the bottle actually, physically shipped?

                  Even if so, it is not despicable for B to refuse to pay the tariff. It is unfortunate that he chose to do it that way, but it was his right to choose to do things that way. When I buy someone a gift, or lose a bet, I don’t make anyone pay extra money to take their gift/winnings. It is completely OK.

                  But I also see Jim’s situation: I don’t see any way in reality how he could’ve made that tariff payment without it being traceable to his real life identity, a big no-no. If so, Jim *should’ve* made the reason explicit (unless he had).

                  All parties could take things in good faith here. Jim, tell me if I’m mistaken. I’m sure we can get to the bottom of this and find a way forward, to a win-win-win compromise.

                • jim says:

                  Yes, the bottle was physically shipped all the way to Israel, and at the Israeli border, complications. The Israeli government wanted to B to pay. And did not want to bill me.

                  I had no means to make the payment – have you tried dealing with the government lately? It is complicated. The government makes it hard to pay them. I wanted to send money to B and B would then make the payment.

                  I could not just pay them. They would have had to bill me. Maybe B had a bill that he could have sent me, and I could have paid that bill, but he did not send it to me, though I asked him to.

                  I could have tried harder, and I should have tried harder, but B was not making it easy, and the government does not make it easy for anyone and B did not make it easy for me. It would have been difficult and complicated for him to pay the government, and a lot more difficult and complicated for me to pay the government. If he had simply sent me a bill, would have paid it, but if I understand the problem, they were not simply sending him a bill. He would have had to jump through hoops to get sent a bill, and he wanted me to jump through those hoops for him, and I did not know how to do so.

                  I am underwhelmed by Orthodox Jewish resistance to gay marriage, transexuality, and all that, but they are, as B claimed, holding up a lot better than Christians.

                • shaman says:

                  That’s the point Eli: Jim *agreed* to pay B a sum equivalent to the tariff! In fact, he offered to do so in advance, that is, before B would even go to take the whiskey bottle. Hence B’s rude behavior being completely inexplicable, so inexplicable that even sympathetic fellow Jews couldn’t defend it.

                  Whatever – the personal morality of the members here is irrelevant. (Moralfaggotry in general is a lame business, at least during these troubled and insane times) What matters is high value vs. non-high value, and B does indeed possess high value; his stubborn contrarianism was a blessing in disguise. While his worldview and conclusions were wrong, one could learn a whole lot just by seeing him explicate them.

                  I’d swap a thousand Kookanics for one B. And so would Jim, I believe.

                  No, the bet was on Orthodox Jews capitulating to gay marriage. I predicted they would capitulate. They have not, though they have been very busy making appeasing noises.

                  On Aleppo, we could not agree on the terms of the bet, which I think was a reflection of the fact that B’s position shot down by events occurring as we discussed Aleppo.

                • shaman says:

                  B’s real blind spot, which has been pointed out to him time and again, was his complete willingness to drop all race-realism whenever intra-Jewish diversity has been discussed.

                  The problem of sandnigger Jews in Israel has been presented to him, and he was asked, “Had Israel absorbed millions of North African and Ethiopian Jews in 1948, would it be a functional state nowadays, or not?” He found a convenient excuse to ignore that question by dismissing it as a counterfactual. In so doing, he deliberately avoided reaching the necessary conclusion regarding intra-Jewish genetic inequality.

                  Another blind-spot was his belief that, if a group of Jews arrived in or passed through a certain country in antiquity, it logically follows that all Jews, from everywhere in the world, should forever be allowed to settle in that country. It’s this kind of ethnocentric, entitled sentiment that greatly contributes to antisemitism.

                  Basically, he got pwned whenever some inconvenient Jewish topics were brought up, because he was both intellectually and emotionally invested in the mainstream Jewish historical narrative, and wouldn’t deviate from it, lest uncomfortable thought-crimes might ensue.

                  He also has often been accused by Jim of misrepresenting his own sources, of saying, “It says here X” despite it not being the case. Was he deliberately lying? Perhaps not; possibly, he was just so convinced that his mental image of reality was correct, that he didn’t bother to actually investigate whether or not the facts supported that mental image.

                  Regardless of these flaws, the long arguments Jim and B would have were edifying; even when B misrepresented his own sources, he still provided those sources, so you could learn a lot by checking them directly, rather than relying on B’s accounts thereof. I believe that it was Mencken who once observed that, to paraphrase the observation, Jewish learning far exceeds Jewish wisdom; that stereotype is certainly correct in B’s case. Yet, great learning can be valuable in itself, if you — the one who critically examines it — possess the cognitive capacity to register it properly.

                  B is wanted, not so much because he tells the right answers, as much as his usefulness in formulating the right questions.

                • Eli says:

                  B had the guts to disagree w Jim. Frequently and strongly. Usually, people who do it here, don’t last beyond a short time (CR is also an exception, admittedly). He did it irreverently, energetically, and w material for support.

                  And he had some good cases. For instance, the whole Aleppo thing. B was proven right. Same for gay marriage among the Orthodox Jews.

                  Now, of course, he was wrong too. Eg: He had overly low expectations of Trump. Too pessimistic. He was proven at least partially wrong (fortunately for all!) But, so far, Jim has also been wrong, perhaps even more: Trump does not appear to be the “God-Emperor” that he was hoping he would be. We are still on the path towards Brazilification, according to the latest data on fertility and trends. Trump keeps talking about how much he wants women to be successful work-drones, while parading Ivanka’s business acumen and feminist activities. Does he believe in it himself? I think he does: he’s a high-status man, with no reason to advocate an exotic (for today) arrangement for marriage. In fact, he’s been quite the beneficiary of female emancipation himself!

                  B did provide a lot of sources. And I do remember some occasions where those sources conveyed the exact opposite of what he was trying to prove. Like in the case of Elephantine papyri. Also, not infrequently, the supporting material provided merely anecdotal examples. It was ok sometimes, but definitely not for cases where the responsibility was on him to provide far greater support (such as the case regarding Haredim being successful scientists; sans a very limited amount of rather marginal examples, it’s generally not the case that the Haredim make for good, esp world-renown scientists)

                  Curiously, both B and Jim seemed to agree that a major social upheaval in the US is brewing in the next decade or two. I’m, actually, not so certain. Brazil, after all, is still the shithole that it is and will be for a long time. Until whatever malaise that’s reducing the TFR of normal-looking smart people is healed (and, of course, it is female emancipation). You don’t have to have a Leftist Singularity. It can keep on steaming and decaying, w people running away, to East Asia or islands of conservatism and civility in the agrarian interior and bribing officials to hide their wealth from taxation and get protection from the zombies. As long as people have too much to lose by rebelling, it’s not going to happen. In today’s world, I don’t see it. There is also plenty of tasty food, anti-depressants and entertainment to take one’s mind off of whatever one isn’t happy about. So, as long as the PTB don’t do anything overly stupid or an external trigger of some sort doesn’t happen, it’ll keep on going.

                  B, despite his weak position on female emancipation and some of his strange beliefs in the all-powerful *multi-generational* Wall Street NWO conspiracy (where Jews are victims, cultural and physical, actually), was onto something: Namely, if all the conventional reasons for falling TFR are either BS or epiphenomena, then feminism, which is much closer to the actual reason, is *still* not it. Accordingly, in a general climate of nihilism, even putting women into direct slavery will not result in a successful society. As he said: “You can’t have a hierarchical order without a suprahierarchical purpose, unless you are living in conditions of adversity and privation.” You still need the recognition of the First Cause then.

                  Maybe, indeed, intelligence just all by itself is too costly of an evolutionary adaptation. For if , in utterly dark caves, fish lose their eyes over generations, the same can be said about IQ. It took tremendous amount of suffering to get where we are. We can lose it in a century. But… it won’t be the end. Humanity will return to its proper condition someday, because there is no other way and life is quite adaptable for survival. But it might take a few centuries (or millennia) to reorient back on the right path. The later it happens, the more painful it’ll be. But it’ll be. I don’t subscribe to “cosmo-horrorism.” Given the lack of conclusive extraterrestrial signals, I believe that we are one of the first civilizations in this Universe. Civilization prevails, because it’s a positive attribute, where positive = life-sustaining-and-spreading. And, per above and per Gödel, civilization and its positive entailments are inevitable (even if it’s not on this planet) https://math.stackexchange.com/questions/248548/gödels-ontological-proof

                  Also, in a theory inspired by B’s passionate argumentation, it is probably better to live next to traditional Ethiopians that respect law rather than next to tattooed SJW thots defending their gerbil-killing homo friends. I haven’t discovered the former yet, but have a pretty good idea of the latter. It’s, again, a speculation at this point, but I wouldn’t throw it out just yet. (I still like too many amenities and dislike dark faces. Plus, Blacks tend to stink more and shit doesn’t work well with them in charge.)

                  It appears, B is busy w more important things in his life at the moment. I hope he will get into those disputations again someday. For now though, it appears that a lot of the good and interesting ideas have been advanced and developed, and there is only so much one can argue about blue-pilling vs red-pilling and the woman question. (How many times do we need to propagate it to a CR or a pmint, and does it matter much?) Honestly though, I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to learn so much.

                  Huh?

                  Aleppo fell, approximately as and when I predicted, and in falling, proved that guerrila warfare is ineffectual against an army that is not infested with lawyers that are busy making sure that the war is unwinnable, as I predicted, and as B denied, that being the main point of dispute. Guerrilla warfare never got off the ground in Syria, not withstanding B’s confident predictions.

                  Almost immediately B proceeded to lie barefaced about his previous positions, adjusting our conversations in his favor, instead of conceding that he was thoroughly and drastically proven full of bullshit.

                  I said that short of open invasion by Turkey, Aleppo would fall pretty soon, and that would be that, and it did fall pretty soon, and that was that.

                  > Brazil, after all, is still the shithole that it is and will be for a long time.

                  Nuts

                  Brazil is improving dramatically, thanks to heavy handed policing backed by Christian priests, and heavy handed Christian priests backed by police. It is a spectacular demonstration of the benefits of Church getting behind the state, and the state getting behind the Church. If members of criminal gangs want to stay alive, they convert to official Christianity and act Christian. For a converted gang member, apostasy is apt to be fatal.

                  The economy is improving rapidly.

                  The leading lights of the previous government are in jail for all the usual crimes that members of the ruling elite routinely commit and routinely get away with.

                  I would call that a spectacular social upheaval. Still has a feral woman problem, but even that is under pressure, and the huge criminal problem is being taken care of. That is a radical transformation.

                  Whether or not crime has changed, the measures to stop crime have changed. The new Brazilian president is doing what I hoped Trump would do. He is doing the right thing and that is a radical social transformation.

                  The priesthood of lawyers, academics, and judges who favored criminals over law abiding citizens is out of power, and a priesthood of actual priests is in power. That is radical social change.

                  By the way, Bryce Laliberte has returned, and… he’s an even bigger and madder lolcow right now than when he took a 5-year-break. Like, he openly and unabashedly supports gays, trannies, and even Feminism now. Yes, he is right that some in the inner circle of NRx backstabbed him and twisted the knife, but a) he is being too much of a whining faggot about it, almost Anissimov-tier; b) given his deep drift to poz-politics, it was probably clear to inner NRx that they would be better off ejecting him.

                  He also claims that the FBI, who appearedly have visited him multiple times, have fucked up with his mind – that, I can certainly believe. Indeed, he’s like an MKUltra’d version of his former self. Lel. Whoever bullydcided him the first time (“Shaman, why are you winking right now?”) should have been infinitely more brutal.

                • shaman says:

                  >I don’t recollect that drama.

                  Long story short: Ted Colt went through Bryce’s old archives on his original blog and found that he “struggles with same-sex attraction” (he claimed to not be a full homo, but bisexual). It got posted on /aristoi/ because that’s where all the drama was, and everyone was uproariously laughing about it for a week; we trolled him and we trolled him *hard*, but then again, pretty much everyone gets trolled, so who cares? Well, this prompted Bryce to quit the internet for 5 years.

                  Recently, he’s returned to the scene both on WordPress and Twitter, but while his blog is typically incomprehensible, which is not very unusual for people in this sphere, his Twitter feed is thoroughly and completely pozzed; I guess he decided that if he can’t resist his inner perversions and inclinations, he may as well wear them on his sleeve and parade them.

                  And he claims, justifiably, that the guy who tried to screw you over — Nick B. Steves — has conspired with the rest of the Hestia gang to both plagiarize his work and silence him when he complained. (Since they had also plagiarized Spandrell and then ignored his complaints, that makes perfect sense; it’s their modus operandi, apparently)

                  Be that as it may, right now there’s no point reaching out to him; he exhibits severe mental illnesses. If ever he returns to his long-lost senses, he can be invited here. But I wouldn’t hold my breath about this one.

                  And speaking of Michael Anissimov, probably his only article worth discussing is “Reconciling Transhumanism and Neoreaction”:

                  http://archive.fo/VDMvW

                  Yes, he too went cray-cray following his “meltdown of all meltdowns,” and became an unironic nazi; but his argument about how a transhumanist future necessitates an intelligent and legitimate elite to possess a strict monopoly on various types of weaponry is at least *plausible*. Here’s a key quote:

                  “Considering the likely long-run consequences of unrestrained, worldwide molecular manufacturing, I was horrified by how many ways this story could go wrong. Untraceable killer cybernetic mosquitoes for anonymous assassinations. Mobsters with fullerene muscles a hundred times stronger than steel. Nuclear enrichment centrifuges you can build in your basement. Combined with a largely unrestrained, laissez-faire anarcho-capitalist or simply neoliberal capitalist system, we have a recipe for disaster. Only through embracing Traditional structures and patterns did I see a way out of this conundrum.”

                  The article has its flaws and “shaky premises,” and perhaps Anissimov only reaches right political conclusions from wrong political axioms, but at least it proposes an interesting and unconventional thought experiment. I’d like to see more of these in NRx, if only to be intellectually titillated, but perhaps we’ll have to wait for Moldbug’s reemergence to see NRx return to its former days of glory.

                That I mock people who deserve mocking doesn’t make me that.

                And I’m not going to comment on my role (or lack therefore) in the Peppermintocalypse, but it is objectively a good thing that someone with his positions on the WQ received a roasting. Right now, Nikolai, at least 28% of American men aged 18-30 are sexless. Reflect on that, will you? We’re sitting on a YUGE powder keg, and when it finally explodes, gonna be quite “messy.”

                Peppermint’s views were fundamentally incompatible with any sane program to restore sexual sanity in the West. The Peppermintocalypse *had* to happen, and in fact, it was way more important than the recent drama with Kookanic.

                • Nikolai says:

                  From anecdotal experience, 28% strikes me as a lowball estimate. If you control for occasional one night stands with unattractive women, I’d bet that number would shoot up above 50%.

                  >Peppermint’s views were fundamentally incompatible with any sane program to restore sexual sanity in the West

                  Don’t think so. While I agree that the WQ is the most important question and people who are bluepilled on it should be relentlessly bullied, like Glenfilthie or viking. (Though I think the threats against the latter’s daughter were uncalled for).

                  However, Peppermint wasn’t bluepilled. Sure he exaggerated the chastity of high school girls, but on adult women, I don’t think he significantly deviated from any of Jim’s positions. He referred to women as ‘sexbots’ and went on, at length, about how feminists not-so-secretly want abusive sex with low life scum and to be forced to submit to wealthy patriarchs.

                  His comments weren’t always coherent, but even when they were incomprehensible, you could tell that he understood women and that he understood them from experience.

                  It’s not possible to reconcile “girls misbehave because men make them misbehave” with restoration of sexual sanity; furthermore, when he deviated from Jim’s and Heartiste’s clearly stated positions about the desirability of fertile females, *but claimed to not deviate from these positions*, he was absolutely dishonest, as he later admitted himself. The Victorians tried his approach, failed catastrophically. So it has been explained to him — with, ummm, varying degrees of politeness — that a different approach is required.

It’s not really possible to bullycide high-value individuals, because they’re well liked, nor would I want to bullycide high-value individuals. Look at the list of individuals who “talked shit and got hit,” and tell me with a straight face that they didn’t all deserve it.

                  But again, I can’t force anyone out of someone else’s blog, and trolling gets boring after a while anyway. Nothing prevents all the people who left from coming back. They don’t come back for their own reasons.

              The battle occurred throughout 2018, or rather the final stages. The way JP wrote it seemed like it had been ongoing. The core of the final discussion was that Pepper believed no healthy, red blooded male was attracted to any female under 17. JP systematically took him apart.

              To pepper’s credit, he, at the end, admitted he was wrong, apologized for wasting bandwidth, then said he was taking a break. No ragequit, or promises of absence and hellfire IIRC.

      Since these days the SAT tops out at 115-120, that seems hardly necessary. But I guess that rather than having average people graduating summa cum laude from Ivy universities, they want rock stupid people graduating summa cum laude from Ivies.

      If you have a majority of females getting advanced degrees, and a curiously large number of black people getting degrees, you are already unofficially doing this. If anything, its good that they make it formal instead of just rigging the results of supposedly merit based criteria.

      In the events leading to the great minority mortgage meltdown, they initially tried to select the best of the minorities for mortgages – which led to embarrassingly obvious fact that almost every white rejected was better than almost every brown accepted. So they concluded that their criteria for a good borrower were discriminatory, and adjusted their criteria to be non discriminatory – which tended to result in granting multi million dollar loans to drunken unemployed wetbacks with no english, no assets and no id cards. Instead of getting the best, or the least bad browns, they got the worst.

      Perhaps they have figured that making the SAT ever less discriminatory is leading to the same results as the great minority mortgage meltdown, and have decided that formal and overt affirmative action will produce less bad results.

They are magnets for bad actors who have a way of disappearing from society into their depths. They are a magnet for fertile, rutting females whose only real contribution to society is headcount. They collect men of strong back/simple mind. They are offspring factories. And they are overwhelmingly white.

          Imagine a trailer park, radially oriented, with a 15′ fence and 4 openings; 2 entrances and 2 exits. Inside, the trailers spiral inward. The periphery are single wides and simple structures. as you wind closer to the center, the trailers become more robust and sturdy. In the center is a sort of castle made of shipping containers. Inside lives the park manager and the support staff. The facility has a simple medical facility, exclusively a substance abuse out-program. The denizens of the park can be anyone. They get bonus cash and subsidy for pissing clean [x] weeks in a row, attending workshops with their children, maintaining employment, getting married, etc. Ne’er-do-wells will be given one chance after a fuck up, then it is For The Road after contractual seizure of surrendered property. Ditto with unfaithful spouses. A small security force keeps the local constabulary on speed dial, as well as the closest hospital. Work gangs and temporary labor pools will be made available to both county and state entities, background checks, biometrics, and resumes in hand.

          Coupling this entity with orphanages, prison halfway house programs, and other constructs, an intentional community of The Weak could be the Wellspring of a very capable and well trained Darkly Enlightened Lower Caste.

    >Man, there is no way 72% of young guys are having regular sex in America. I don’t even think that was true when I lived there 15 years ago. These numbers are self-reported and no one wants to say “I haven’t had sex in a year and this was against my will.”

    Jim, what is your take? Has involuntary celibacy always been so common?

    • The Cominator says:

      Inceldom was not common before the 1960s because people were married off young.

      For the remaining single men not common then either because its easier to seduce married women then single women (recall the story of the postal worker who turned out to have 1500 illegitimate kids).

      Not common after the pill and before aids because I’ve been told women weren’t all that picky in that era and sexually harassing women was okay and white knighting was less common.

      I think it really became common in say the 1990s…

        Male status drops relative to female status, as a result fewer males get any, and fewer children are conceived.

      • Dave says:

        My dad was incel before the 1960s, but if you asked him then, he’d probably just say he was saving himself for marriage, though he had no girlfriend despite excellent career prospects. Then his best friend’s wife filed for divorce and the friend drove his car off a bridge. My dad married the widow and adopted her two children of different fathers because she was still pretty and he “wanted to do the right thing”.

        When she ditched him, he joined a computer dating service, met my mom, and she liked him because he resembled her brother, a lifelong incel nerd born before WW2, a war my dad was almost old enough to fight in.

        There have always been technically adept but socially awkward men who could not marry unless their families found wives for them. Isaac Newton, Hans Christian Anderson, Nikola Tesla, and many others.

    • Nikolai says:

      Great minds think alike. The metric itself is obviously a bad measure of inceldom. I think most people would agree that a guy who manages to bang a different 4/10 girl every three months is still sexless at heart. The same could be said, arguably, for men who resort to prostitutes.

      I just don’t see many young guys with girlfriends, and most single guys look like they get laid rarely, if ever. But I frequently see women complaining about trying to secure a guy who’s currently sleeping with 10 other women.

    Suggestion for the NeoAnglican Creed that I think Jim anticipates enforcing as Archbishop: All points of the official Anglican body of doctrine of (some year in the 18th Century) are “meta-literally true” — everything said in the Old and New Testaments is meta-literally true. It’s heretical to declare that these things are not meta-literally true, so it’s therefore heretical to say that these things are literally true as well as heretical to say that these things are false. To those who demand some clear account of “meta-literal truth,” reply that the nature of meta-literal truth is Mysterious, just as “homoousios” is Mysterious.

    This approach will promote a content-full religious life without the vagueness and half-heartedness consequent upon the declaration that “it’s all symbolic.” It’s NOT just symbolic — It’s meta-literally true!

    Punishment for heresy: you can’t use the internet or devices such as portable phones that allow you to use the internet.. So, you can’t hold jobs that require using the internet or such devices.

    • jim says:

      Sounds like a plan. I love “meta literal”. Saint Augustine had the same idea, but he called in “Literal”, which is bad because it obscures a distinction that matters.

      But we don’t want too many genuinely sincere martyrs either.

      People who want governmental or quasi governmental jobs (other than low status jobs) will have to affirm a catechism of the official religion – which is already the case, it is just that the religion is progressivism, it is officially unofficial and the catechism is officially not a catechism.

      Heretics who are far from power will be allowed, but treated like barking dogs.

      If people with power subsequently commit heresy or apostasy, then we nail them, and we nail them hard enough to deter, and in ways that lower their status. I am inclined to favor rustification – send them far away from the centers of power – and with the internet you are never far away from the centers of power, hence internet restriction is needed, with considerably more drastic remedies in hard cases.

      Peer review is truth by consensus, thus inevitably religious truth, as with global warming, environmentalism, and dietary “science” The official religion needs to be true or unfalsifiable, thus needs to come down hard on people incorporating potentially falsifiable doctrines about this world into the official belief system, which they are always tempted to do, because people are always trying to game the official religion to get more power and status for themselves, and to damage and lower the status of status competitors.

      We need to incorporate Gnon into the official religion as natural law (natural law in the sense of Aquinas, not Newton) – which inevitably means taking a position on the facts of this world. In particular, All Women are Like That. We just have to make sure that our position is well based on empirical evidence. So, under the justification of re-examining Aquinas and the doctrine of fallen man under the scientific method, Game Theory and Evolutionary psychology is going to go into the official belief system.

      You will be given sufficient elbow room to doubt the literal and concrete existence of Adam, provided you are not too obnoxious about it – but you will not be able to doubt or his meta-literal existence – or even get unduly clear as to the difference between literal existence and meta literal existence. For this, we have excellent Christian tradition in Saint Augustine, who declared himself a Biblical literalist on the Garden of Eden and all that, and proceeded to interpret it in ways that foreshadowed Darwin’s account and is entirely compatible with Darwin’s account.

      So we will slide the reactionary worship of Gnon into the official religion under the precedents set by Saint Augustine and Saint Thomas Aquinas, with a truckload of empirical studies on human conduct and human nature.

    • kawaii_kike says:

      Can you elaborate on what you mean by “meta literal”?

      • jim says:

        If I get to be grand inquisitor, elaborating on what meta-literal means will, like elaborating on what it means that God is Three and God is one, be heresy.

        Meta-literal will mean what Saint Augustine meant by “literal”, and what he meant by “literal” was not entirely clear.

        • Koanic says:

          Real Christians won’t go for it. “Meta-literally true” sounds like a joke and a dodge. This is exciting primarily to people who aren’t actually Christians. And such people are not permitted to rule the Church.

          • Koanic says:

            You could go with “essentially true”, with the “meta-literal” variant being an accepted subset thereof, for the Doubting Thomases.

            • jim says:

              It is delicate – but Constantine shut down debate over the persons of the Trinity with a hammer, and that worked quite well. It was a stupid debate.

              But before he did so, he engaged in long consultation with the bishops. We cannot resolve the problem of literalism without discussion with the priesthood, and without that discussion taking place with the power to shut it down looming over them. We will eventually have to shutdown discussion of literalism, but should do it the way Constantine shut down discussion of the persons of the Trinity.

              • Koanic says:

                I haven’t followed the issue closely, but settling on a good enough answer and skipping the wars sounds good to me. I support the institution of state churches, of course. The concept of not having one is totally un-Biblical, in the sense that it doesn’t even occur to anyone.

          • jim says:

            Real Christians went for Saint Augustine.

            • Alrenous says:

              Real Christians go for whatever the State tells them to go for.

            • Koanic says:

              There are a lot of real Christians who believe the Bible is literally true, but that is stupid, because the Bible employs figurative language heavily. Using the adverb “literally” will generate heat not light. “Meta-literally” is literally an oxymoron:

              literal
              /ˈlɪt(ə)r(ə)l/
              adjective
              1.
              taking words in their usual or most basic sense without metaphor or exaggeration.

              • jim says:

                A lot of the bible is obviously metaphorical. As Saint Augustine points out, there is no mountain from which one could see all the nations of the earth.

                But arguing over which parts are metaphorical and in what sense, and which parts are not, is as unprofitable as debating the relationship of the persons of the trinity, so we need a doctrine that stops that argument, and which allows us to take advantage of evolutionary psychology. It just will not be a reactionary religion unless we incorporate red pill doctrine on the nature of women.

                • Koanic says:

                  I don’t think you can create a doctrine that substitutes for reading comprehension, which is too bad, because that is exactly what people lack.

                • The Cominator says:

                  There are certain parts which I imagine it will be very important for us to state clearly whether its to be meant literally or metaphorically.

                  A general rule should be that… if a biblical statement is conclusively scientifically falsified it MUST have been metaphorical.

                  Along the same lines if the bible seems to imply some policy that is a social disaster and has been conclusively shown by history to be one… metaphorical or at least not literal.

                • jim says:

                  Most of the biblical laws are pretty good, but they screwed up on usury:

                  Usury is indeed a problem, as for example student loans, which encourage wasteful and irresponsible expenditure. But solving that problem without shutting down legitimate and necessary expenditure, like young people buying their first house, is tricky, and we know that ancient Hebrews never found a satisfactory answer.

                  The Christians farted around with stupid answers for centuries, eventually arriving on a pretty good answer, but their economic justification for it was incoherent and rather silly.

                  Debts against the person shall be non interest bearing, or else enforceable only against their credit rating. Loans on property can be extinguished by retuning the property. If the house is less than the value of the loan, the lender should not have made a stupid loan. Loans against the corporation can be extinguished by wiping out the existing shares, making first tier debtors into shareholders, and second tier debtors into first tier debtors.

                  But Christians did not find their way to the answer on usury till fairly late.

                  The risk should be shared between lender and borrower in such a way that making bad loans for irresponsible or unwise expenditures penalizes the lender, rather than trapping the borrower.

                • The Cominator says:

                  Bad Old Testament laws aren’t a problem because Christianity is not Islam and has never been a code of laws though some laws in Christendom have drawn biblical inspiration.

                • Koanic says:

                  I don’t see why young men should be permitted to hock their future. Better to tie their wealth and independence to completion of an apprenticeship, like Jacob. As for a house, that is an inheritance. Those without land or inheritance are slaves, not debt slaves.

                  As for usury, there is no need to charge usury of one’s brethren, to profit by their failure and loss. IT has rendered transnational personal lending trivial.

                • Koanic says:

                  We have tried making the dollar the fundamental unit of society, and the result is social disintegration and socialist revolution. The landed patriarch is the fundamental unit.

                  .06 sq km per man.
                  or 14 acres

                  The real trick would be sorting people into adjacent genetic clusters, to preserve some semblance of European evolutionary diversity. If I understand correctly, evolution proceeds faster when there is semi-permeable local integrity. Adaptive genes propagate through barriers, but the geo-genetic diversity isn’t violently blended into homogeneity.

                • Koanic says:

                  It might be impossible to make heads or tails of the American melting pot genetic stew. But since we are patriarchs, we can simplify by focusing on the Y-chromosome DNA. Major clusters can then be allotted appropriate geographical regions. Grant the Y clusters political autonomy, and voila, we have our American tribes.

                  Give the peripheral whites a buffer zone somewhere between Texas and Central America. Native Americans can either head north and play Eskimo like the Sami, or south past the peripheral whites.

                  Then maybe, just maybe, we’ll unfuck ourselves in time to hold North America against Chinese expansion. Let them eat Asia and Africa instead. There’s plenty of room for the 100+ IQ races to expand before space elevators make exporting surplus terrestrial meatbags trivial. Fare half-price for double-amputees! One small lop for man…

                  There won’t be any “Chinese expansion” until they solve their woman problem and achieve a healthy birthrate. So far the only sentient humans not headed for extinction are the Amish.

                  Jim, do you think any race will ever create an industrial society that doesn’t contracept itself out of existence? Industry requires cities, and cities are a vast buffet of mating opportunities for young women, making them loathe to settle down with one man until it’s almost closing time.

                  All the solutions I can think of would make “The Handmaid’s Tale” look like a feminist utopia.

                  I don’t have the genetics expertise to know the right keyphrases to search for a citation for the evolutionary effect to which I was referring. So I’ll just describe the concept from memory as best I recall. Maybe later I’ll find it when I organize the science section of my notes.

                  Think of normal human evolution like a honeycomb, with each village being a cell with semi-permeable barriers. Cells are each a mini-selection engine. Winning genes sweep slowly through the cells, without wiping out the local diversity.

                  Now stick the honeycomb in a blender, such as Ellis Island. Instead of finding these advantageous genes, selection is mostly about who’s best optimized for the scaled environment. Selection is busy modifying the population proportions of all the different local genomes that have been blended together, and culling the dissonant hybridizations. It is no longer sensitive to small advantages.

                  For example, one major trend is that Neanderthal genes are being selected against. Whereas if Neanderthals were segregated and concentrated somewhere, then they could continue their genetic drift and innovate advantageous mutations based on their unique heritage.

                  Whatever one may think of this idea, it certainly isn’t mine. I recall being surprised upon reading it.

                  Your model of the Neanderthal / “Star Child” / “Melon Head” / Cro-Magnon / etc. classification is based on your own character and physical traits, and on almost nothing else, in the exact same manner that VD’s model of the socio-sexual hierarchy is based on his own personality traits, and on nothing else.

                  You attribute to Neanderthals traits that they didn’t actually possess, and you pretend to possess typically Neanderthal traits that you don’t actually possess, all in an effort to make your self-centered theory somehow cohere, and to suck in dimwitted loners eager to know that they are “Neanderthals,” perhaps because they suffer identity crisis and need an e-daddy’s approval.

            Really, though, there’s no reason to doubt the Adam account. It’s clearly a description of cloning. Anaesthesia is applied, and the regenerating short rib is taken for bone marrow to clone XX Eve from XY Adam. The trees are other nations of peoples, same as the figurative language in Ezekiel 31. Adam was a fusion of divine DNA with earthly evolved races, corresponding to an anthropological great leap forward, probably in the linguistic, religious, and self-awareness areas of human behavior. He was the first rightful king of Man, who fell. The nation corresponding to the serpent mascot was probably equally advanced, but already decadent. Their history is lost to us, although suggestive fragments remain. The forbidden fruit was spiritual and sexual congress therewith.

            The story is compressed into figurative language for multi-millennial transmission, and no doubt conveys multiple layers of truth, as similar Biblical communications tend to do.

    Jim, I’ve been re-reading some of your old writings. Really good stuff, from almost three decades ago. Particularly, this: https://jim.com/rights.html

    Do you have anything you’d like to add to or change in it, in light of the developments in the world and, perhaps, your own thinking?

    • jim says:

      Nah, unlike Moldbug, I think we are always in a state of nature, and the state is a shared illusion that we sustain for fear of the chaos beneath, a fragile ship on a storm tossed sea. Notice that Xi gives orders, and something very different happens – he is in a much stronger position than Trump, but still his power is far less in reality than it is officially.

      And similarly, any place where you rely on the police to protect you is a very dangerous place.

      The state is effectual to the extent that reflects the will of a cohesive tribe, and in large states that is always a synthetic tribe. Thus a precondition for an effectual state is that members of that tribe are well behaved towards each other, which we are seeing less and less of.

      If you have a inner group of elite people, people who are both able, and also well behaved towards one another, it looks like the state is all powerful. But this is an illusion.

      The anarcho capitalist point of view, which I expressed in that essay, assumes rational and independent individuals. But individuals group up, and fairly regularly they group up to take other people’s stuff, which is a problem that anarcho capitalists tend to ignore. The Moldbug view on the other hand, presupposes the group to be all powerful – and in a sense that is true, and the anarcho capitalists are horribly wrong. But how does the group itself cohere?

      So, you have to add to that analysis who/whom, near/far

      Of the ten commandments, the latter six follow from the natural law arguments of that essay. And the first four are ways of identifying the ingroup, which is also the group of people you are inclined to expect will follow the latter six. By making everyone take time off on the same day, they got to spend time with other members of the ingroup, and not with members of the outgroup, and also got to identify those following the first four, which is a hint that they might well be following the latter six.

            You are right that certain natural rights derive from gnon, animals have things they think of as their property and will defend themselves and their property but force overrides all right even if it is blunt as a governing instrument.

        It would be very interesting what things you believe today vs what you believed then, expressed in a more clear form. Something like a table.

        I can see from your essays that you were more pro-Locke, and not as much now. Nonetheless, it’d be nice to know where that dividing line is, what it’s predicated on.

        Personally, I buy into your thesis of Natural Law, especially as viewed from evolutionary theory (describing ESS). However,
        1) It looks like at different times/locales/modes of existence in humanity’s history, different ESS applied. This was expressed by Rich Hanson over a number of essays, among which is this: https://www.overcomingbias.com/2012/05/forager-vs-farmer-morality.html

        2) As societies evolved their military, medical, transportation and other technologies, scales changed drastically and a whole slew of new issues have come up. Especially, in the last 150 years.

        3) I found support for your Lockean thesis in some of Moshe Koppel’s essays, like this one:
        https://mosaicmagazine.com/essay/uncategorized/2013/07/a-modest-proposal/

        4) Further, I find that in order to reconcile your other position of “Closed, Heritable Priesthood” and Moshe Koppel’s very good Lockean position above, it is necessary to break Jewish practice into 2 modalities: A) local clergy, elected by communally-trusted representatives (akin to gentile “Low Church”); B) State Priesthood (Cohens) who would maintain the Temple. Make that division super-strict, disallowing movement between the two.

        5) I’m still unclear on whether the state ought to monopolize the policing function. It looks to me, the answer is NO. Does this go against the Moldbuggian view?

        • jim says:

          Totally goes against the Moldbuggian view.

          It is difficult to have effective policing unless you tolerate some private violence. Britain’s crime wave escalated massively when they cracked down on private violence by homeowners facing home invasion. Hard to stop shoplifting if Walmart security cannot detain shoplifters in the parking lot.

          A strict centralized state monopoly on violence fails the same way any strict state monopoly fails. It provides insufficient violence and provides the wrong kind of violence, targeting the easily targetable, taxpayers and warriors, rather than their difficult and unprofitable to target enemies.

          As with any state activity, you need to outsource as much as possible. The central government should deal only with large scale group violence, as for example union violence, and crimes against the central state, and the local cop should back up the family patriarch, rather than substitute himself for him.

          The state is not a real thing like a wall, but an idea, a shared pretense, like a fiat currency. And, like fiat currency, if you push it too far, trouble ensues.

    ‘Here’s your history: in your ill-conceived quest to prove how “above it all” you are, you have alienated a dozen or so people who might have been sympathetic to you, initially. I am one of those people, and unlike those who instantly crap their pants when a sad-sack like you says, “My IQ is THIS high,” I responded by calling you a pudding-brained dipshit right then and there.’

      It is ridiculous how the 110-120 IQ crowd has non-ironically embraced VD’s autistic classification of personality types, and genuinely considers it to be a valuable means of analyzing their interlocutors.

      “You are a gamma!” “No, I’m obviously a sigma!” “Pffft, everyone knows that we’re all epsilons over here.” “Nah, that’s just lambda projection.” “You’ll never guess what I am: a delta.” And so on and so forth.

      It is meaningless gibberish, and it’s incredibly easy to get the dimwits to expose themselves (e.g., by playing into their preconceived expectations) using their own half-baked analytic prowess against them; a counter-goonlord ju-jitsu, if you will.

      • Samuel Skinner says:

        It isn’t really complicated.

        Alpha- gets laid
        Beta- not so much
        Gamma- people who repel men and women
        Sigma- a trap to smoke out gammas

        • shaman says:

          Seems to me that, as a result of VD’s malevolent goonery, people now mix up sexual classification categories and personality classification categories. These are distinct classifications, and using them interchangeably leads to unnecessary confusion.

          The sexual categories, as used by Roissy, are alpha (gets laid a lot with hot women), beta (gets laid occasionally with 5/10s), and omega (incel). Even that classification is inferior to the binary Chad-Virgin spectrum, because you really just need a positive ideal to strive towards, and a negative counter-ideal to seek to avoid being.

          VD’s personality classification categories, on the other hand, make about as much sense as anyone else’s random made-up heuristic to classify personalities. It’s unbelievable that people still take that stuff seriously. Moreover, whenever I see dimwits referencing VD’s spergphabet, the shoe hardly fits at all. Even the DSM-5 carries more empirical weight.

          • The Cominator says:

            Roissy’s system is correct, Vox’s is not. Virgin chad works is if you see it as a spectrum except its not very easy for people who are not natural alpha/chads to become that…

            • shaman says:

              Yes, I agree. Both Roissy and Chad-Virgin are helpful to understand the sexual marketplace. They both map to actual people you can witness in real life. In contrast, VD’s drivel is a complete distraction; it detracts from one’s ability to read socio-sexual situations, rather than contributing to it.

              The only good thing about VD’s classification is its usefulness in screening out the dumbasses who resort to it from people with IQ>125.

              • Kgaard says:

                Well … I am going to weigh in here for no particular reason. I find Vox’s categories useful. The distinction between beta and delta is useful. And absolutely gamma is a category that advances the ball. Gammas are just weird. You don’t want to be around them. That is different from beta.

                And Omegas are seriously deranged gammas, I think. And then the Sigma concept is also worthwhile, because there is definitely a type of guy who is not socially dominant with men, but still does well with hot women.

                All these map to things you can see in the real world.

                One idea is occurring to me: Freud posited five types of neurosis, one of which is the “perverted” personality. This type of person takes pleasure from seeing other people uncomfortable. Again this is a very specific sort of behavior that is very different from garden variety beta. Gamma captures this.

                Anyway … feel free to shoot this down. The alpha/beta continuum also works fine.

                • BC says:

                  > Again this is a very specific sort of behavior that is very different from garden variety beta. Gamma captures this.

                  Other systems call them Omegas or Incels. Nothing but bad stuff comes from men unable to get laid or form families.

                • shaman says:

                  Even assuming, for discussion’s sake, that all that is correct, the issue still remains: it is not a socio-sexual classification. In which case, the confusion should be dispelled by VD explaining that he uses the Greek Alphabet to sort out various personality disorders or archetypes. But then, why use his classification rather than more accurate, precise categories, e.g., “sadist,” “narcissist,” “sperg,” “schizo,” “borderline,” and so on?

                  It just doesn’t tell you which man gets his dick wet, and which man doesn’t. It also has an extremely low predictive power: judging someone to be, e.g., “sigma,” doesn’t tell you how he will behave in any particular social setting (except those actually specified within the category itself), whereas judging someone to be, e.g., a narcissist, helps quite a lot; such a person’s expected behavior does not need to be explicitly spelled out within the category itself.

                  VD wastes bandwidth.

                  Gamma is not a legitimate sexual hierarchy classification, an omega is an omega is an omega they don’t get laid. That is their hierarchy position. Gamma was a projection Vox made up of traits he hates about himself.

                  There are men who are not socially dominant with males but do well with women, but they are not Vox Day’s sigmas.

                  Exactly so. And everyone who regularly uses this category, including some people in this thread, is likewise projecting his own unpleasant personality traits onto people they dislike. In general, whenever people make up random classifications out of thin air, they simply reflect their own personality traits, falsely generalized as “archetypes.”

                  The typical VD follower looks like this:

                  And even those who don’t physically look that way, still look like this on the inside. In other words: goons, goons, goons! There’s also something quite feminine about insulting people by invoking this gay-ass classification and making insipid, unfalsifiable insinuations about their placement on the socio-sexual hierarchy; masculine men use insults directly and creatively, rather than categorizing people along some con-artist’s alphabet.

                  Just look at VD’s flame-wars in the comment section: “You’re a gamma!” “No, you’re a gamma!” “No, both of you are gammas.” “I’m the least gamma person here.” “You’re a gamma, but he’s a bigger gamma.” Etc., etc., etc. It’s goonery through and through.

                  But in a cost-benefit analysis, I’m far from convinced that VD’s influence is more positive than negative. Just look how many dipshits he has attracted, and look what arrant nonsense he’s filled their heads with. Perhaps he’s not as bad as Tex Arcane and similar “types,” but ultimately he is still a waste of time and a navel-gazer.

                  But in “the current year” not that useful to your SMV to women. So if you must classify them best to characterize Sigmas as a special subcategory of Alpha.

                  Men who have high female SMV but low male hierarchy value tend to be musicians or other artistic types women like, criminals and lowlifes tend to go out to nightspots with other such types so the women at least percieve high male hierarchy value from at least some criminals and lowlifes.

                  Quite so – but Vox’s Day’s sigma fails to describe what makes musicians and criminals so attractive.

                  It is a blue pill rationalization of female behavior, and if you try to act in ways that the blue pill predicts women will like, they don’t see you. You become invisible to them.

                  A more accurate account is that female perception of male status is more attuned to the days when we still looked like apes, that female perception of status is primitive, or, as I am fond of saying, women perceive status as a small evil child raised by cannibals would see it.

                  Thats another reason I’m convinced hes something of a lunatic. Hes not stupid (though also not as smart as he claims to be) and only stupid people and lunatics believe in “Q” so…

                  She-boy:

                  It’s weird that you spend so much time reading VD’s blog and the comments there

                  You’re lying. I only know what’s on VD’s blog through exposure to alt-right hearsay. For instance, I’m only familiar with his socio-sexual hierarchy by observing his dimwitted fanboys constantly use it. And I only know that he’s a full-on Q-tard because Kookanic explicitly brought that up. I don’t actually follow VD’s writings, except on very seldom occasions to check whether or not I might’ve missed anything of value there. (Nope)

                  you have obviously trawled through Koanic’s old blog and his gab account.

                  This one is true. I did so… a week ago, for the purpose of this little take-down, which by the way, would be over if you didn’t insist on interjecting yourself into it.

                  I suspect you have commented at both blogs and were bitch-slapped by both VD and Koanic in years past.

                  I’ve already told you: I only noticed Kookanic a few months ago; he deleted his blog years ago. As for VD, again, I’ve never commented on his blog, however, it is indeed true that I have been bitch-slapping him (his ideas, at least) for quite a long while, and I’m glad to report that it’s worked great. Notice, for example, that while Jim appreciates VD’s work, he doesn’t disagree with some of my take-downs of VD, because he knows that VD is a very flawed individual.

                  you obsess over those who are obviously geniuses.

                  When VD first sodomized you and gave you AIDS, did he ask you to wear a bra with fake tits and a wig, so that you would pass for his private little “she-man,” or, conversely, was it a case of straight-up “Gimme dat hairy ass, boy,” without further deliberation and preparation?

                  I read Vox Day often. He is entertaining. He is, after all, an entertainer.

                  He has accomplished great and good things, but he has notorious character flaws which have adverse political impact – for example his hostility to Gab. That his socio sexual hierarchy is a projection of his own virtues and flaws makes it inaccurate. That he is purple pilled makes it terrible as a guide to getting laid.

                  However his insights into what makes leftists tick and how to deal with them is brilliant. Vox Day on the sociosexual hierarchy is deceptive bullshit. Vox Day on social justice warriors is great. SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police (The Laws of Social Justice Book 1)

                  do you read it or not?

                  Damn, that question really piques your interest you, doesn’t it?

                  Okay, here is the full answer: I used to check up Free Northerner’s “Reaction Times” aggregator (neorxn.com), and VD’s blog very often appears there. So, before I finally concluded that VD is absolutely worthless and a waste of time, I had sometimes looked at his articles, and on very rare occasions even glanced at his dimwitted shit-show of a comment section, in which I never participated myself due to its offensively low quality. That was all true in 2014-2015 or so. Since then, however, I’ve positively figured that there’s nothing valuable to be found in his vicinity, so it’s been quite a while since I last read anything by him.

                  Having said that, I’m still often exposed to his retarded fanboys — for example: you — so despite the fact that I stay away from his site, and have been staying away from his site since 2015 or so, the putrid brain-rotting mental diarrhea that he produces still, lamentably, reaches me.

                  Why is it tiresome

                  It is tiresome that retarded fanboys like you pollute the discourse, flood many comment sections such as this one for instance, with incessant “U A GAMMA” “NO, U A GAMMA” “NO, U AND U GAMMAS” acrimonious accusations whenever people tolerate your presence.

Artist types who get girls because they are groupies and who don’t understand that the women are groupies often have less understanding of women then sperg incels like me who can learn how the game works but because of personality traits often fail in the execution.

(E.g., if you ever posted on Alf’s blog, he can know your IP) Now, how to change your IP to a specific address is rather more complicated, and may ever require glownigger technology.

                  Alternatively, someone who shares Alf’s IP address, such as his waifu, or even — and this possibility is the most shocking and breathtaking of them all — Alf himself, may be behind the troll. We clearly need a detective to solve this puzzle. Where are the Q-tards when they’re needed?

                  > Roissy’s hierarchy will get you laid. Vox Day’s wont

                  Roissy’s hierarchy is in the eyes of women, Vox’s is in the eyes of men. Men have a more sophisticated social pack structure than women do.

                  The more nonverbal and autistic the audience, the more they tend to deny Vox’s sociosexual hierarchy. Now that the YouTube videos are out, there’s really no excuse. The same reasoning that can be used to reject the existence of Vox’s hierarchy can be used to reject the existence of Roissy’s.

                  > And Vox Day, seeing someone else do great things, has a hissy fit.

                  Not true. Vox’s issue with Torba is about the Alt-Reich making gangbang cartoons with Spacebunny’s face, and also making pedophilia libel, and Torba not taking that down. Therefore Vox regards Torba as pond scum.

                  I supported Gab there from the beginning, and am pleased to have been proven right contra VD. But the one acting like a girl with regards to the conflict has been Torba.

                  > My understanding of Alpha and Sigma is that both are guys lots of women want to fuck but Alpha has more male hierarchy value.

                  No. Sigma is someone with alpha status whom the hierarchy wants to promote to alpha, but he declines. It’s a behavioral distinction, since most of what an alpha does is about managing his pyramid of followers.

                  James Lafond is a Sigma. He’s written about how he consults and assists other martial arts masters in a way that doesn’t undermine the alpha’s authority, but allows him to train their students. His version of the hierarchy is simpler, so he calls himself Omega, but he is too high status for that. Men and women seek him out for leadership and sex, respectively. But he steadfastly refuses all group affiliations.

                  Criminals tend to have a functional violent pack structure, which makes them more masculine and ALPHA than neutered corporate drones, whatever their rank within that underworld hierarchy. Musicians receive massive situational ALPHA from the stage. A musician can be any rank of the sociosexual hierarchy. Neither intrinsically has anything to do with sigma.

                  > It is a blue pill rationalization of female behavior

                  Nonsense. VD explicitly distinguishes between Roissy’s SSH and his own by using the terms ALPHA/BETA and alpha/bravo/delta/gamma respectively. That is to distinguish female perception from male behavior.

                • jim says:

                  > > Roissy’s hierarchy will get you laid. Vox Day’s won’t.

                  > Roissy’s hierarchy is in the eyes of women, Vox’s is in the eyes of men. Men have a more sophisticated social pack structure than women do.

                  Vox is deluded about female perceptions of hierarchy, and his hierarchy is a poor fit to the hierarchy of men, alpha being his virtues, and the lower grades being his own faults.

                • shaman says:

                  Kookanic:

                  The same reasoning that can be used to reject the existence of Vox’s hierarchy can be used to reject the existence of Roissy’s.

                  Nonsense. Roissy’s tripartite hierarchy (alpha-beta-omega) maps to real individuals in the real world. Respectively: charismatic men who are naturally successful with the ladies; men who — due to their supplicatory nature — don’t do very well with women, but still periodically get some; autistic and/or otherwise misfitted and/or very ugly men who are permanent virgins.

                  Meanwhile, VD’s 7-letter-hierarchy merely reflects varying degrees of possession of VD’s own unsavory personality traits, and has very minimal predictive value. It’s a “just-so” model that has never been demonstrated to successfully explain social and sexual dynamics. You can’t actually fit most real people into the model, because VD’s archetypes are wholly arbitrary, and one can easily come up with an entirely different set of archetypes, which will be no more and no less valuable than VD’s.

                  “You are a beta male” carries heavy analytical weight. “You are a delta male” absolutely does not. People following VD — about any issue, and particularly about this one — have trouble distinguishing authentic intelligence from pseudo-intelligence. It’s not surprising that VD’s blog keeps churning out cranks.

    What’s the best way to ensure that the abilities of those men (the great majority?) who aren’t good at hustling and looking around and making connections won’t go to waste in a rapidly-techno-evolving social landscape?

    By “abilities” I don’t mean anything necessarily more impressive than competence at some range of technical tasks.

    In the comments to the last essay I ruefully noted the advantages of a feudal-looking patronage system — the patron could assess the young guy and direct him to an appropriate workshop. But the establishment of a patronage system would be a distressing break with the Anglo-American past and would have a humiliating feel to it for a lot of people who think of themselves as “free” in the ordinary Anglo-American sense.

    The doing-what-your-father-did (farmer, baker, shoemaker) solution seems great to me, but it assumes technological stasis.

    So what alternative is there to (1) wasted lives; (2) doing-what-your-father-did; (3) patronage? Or, if patronage is the best way to go, how might a patronage-system be set up in a way that doesn’t violate Anglo-American dignity?
