It Is Time To Abandon Social Media

  by Brett Stevens  You may have noticed the removal of most social media icons from the top of our page. This reflects a new strategy: social media is dominated by Leftists, so we who are not Leftist should remove ourselves, so that social media has to reveal its actual bias instead of claiming to be a public space. American law has gotten around to classifying some privately-owned spaces as public for the purpose of speech rights, but has not yet extended this to virtual town halls like private media has become. Social media is abusing this. These companies act this way for a simple reason. Their business model is failing. As it turns out, internet advertising is not all that profitable. We […]

the greatest show in human history

I have read A LOT about the deep state and shared some. Their shocking failure to install the witch in the white house was a result of underestimating their enemy. At the time, I thought their excessive confidence and long-running unfettered crime spree was it. Now I am convinced there is a much more tangible enemy of those dark forces. The more I learn about this probability, the more optimistic I get at our chances of seeing them find justice. What I initially thought of in terms of yeah-sure, perhaps, maybe and so on is solidifying. Anonymous is a real force. Q anon is a key, central figure. A very real part of what I hear regularly called simply THE […]

the new world of electronic fantasyland

I almost used the phrase “Brave New World” in my heading but realized it is very much the opposite. These people are retreating from the real world of nature and complete human interactions into an artificial world they find less threatening. They are exchanging multi-dimensional human interactions with much narrower ones coming through the phone they hold in their hands. A conversation with full-sized humans in a whole world environment are reduced to a tinny speaker on a tiny 2-dimensional screen. They are also escaping from considering ideas and information composed by authors that challenge readers to think. Physical print media spans cultures and generations of real world human experience. Life, death, success, failure and consequences exist in meat-space. In […]

looming civil war

I include below most of a National Review article on the dry tinder that is our world today. We are quite likely to be a part of and witness to the biggest change humankind has witnessed in thousands of years. Lucky us, eh? Where I disagree with most who cover this beat is in the origins of our troubles. Many blame Israel, the media, half the politicians, the military-industrial-complex, Obama, Clintons, sex-drugs-rock’n’roll or a number of bits. I say all those bits operate according to a script from above. There is a chain of command and our politicians, the media, corporations and so on are several levels from the top. Use that hypothesis and everything else makes sense. – Ted […]

The Great Society

There were many badly chosen, crucial forks in the road that delivered the freest, most innovative society on Earth to the smelly swamp we inhabit today. I often point to LBJ’s Great Society as one of the biggies. Many of us now know that The Deep State took John F Kennedy out, putting their boy Johnson in charge. He quickly undid JFK’s order returning the US Dollar from the criminal Feral Reserve to the US Treasury. He continued serving his masters by escalating the Vietnam War without ever allowing the generals to win it. The Johnson administration moved control of education from local and state to The DC Swamp. A team of Texans thereafter chose the contents of text books […]

hoisting my flag

Last autumn I had the evergreens shading our high-value, warming, southern exposure removed – or in three cases, turned into naked support masts for future ham radio antennas. Several people have mentioned my “flag pole(s)” wondering what I am going to fly from it/them and when. That particular idea has been churning around in my subconscious for quite some time. What flag would I like to hoist at the entrance to our homestead? Ideally, it would be the flag I designed and produced representing the phrase, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants“. But I have not run across a custom flagmaker … or been inspired to research […]

Good Guys With Guns

James Jaeger and Matrix Productions are well along production of an important, positive movie. I subscribe to his mailing list, receiving occasional updates and progress reports. The film crews have completed most of the interviews with The Big People who stand tall in defense of armed self-defense. There are a lot of work hours yet to go before we get to see this film. Meanwhile, he just sent this insightful explanation of how modern movie production functions, in particular how the financing and industry practices determine most of what the primary media outlets present… and how alternatives actually reach a significantly larger audience… and how that has already changed politics today. – Ted FINANCING CONSERVATIVE MOVIES Would the Founding Fathers […]

When you need work done, ask the old guys

An even dozen mailboxes are clustered where the gravel road meets the paved one. A large, very old, rotten timber holds up 8 of them while the other four perch atop various posts that are as individual as the homeowners who added their mailbox to the row. In all, a very random collection with only one at the US Postal Service mandated 40″ height. Last Monday we all received notices from the post office that our mailboxes needed to meet the 40″ minimum. I responded with printed notes in each mailbox inviting all to a work party at 0900 Saturday to raise them all together. One man telephoned me to say he couldn’t make next Saturday, but wanted to help. […]

the state of cultural decline

The Woodpile Report always has good stuff. This one is no exception. I will toss in some favorite parts, but you probably ought to go read through the whole thing yourself… make sure you have at least 15 minutes, because it is worth at least that. With his excellent links, it can take you many directions for quite a bit longer than that. It is likely worth revisiting. ———————————— Thales at Declination says Leftists have no idea of the risks they are taking: At some point Leftist derangement will exceed the Rightist’s reluctance to resort to violence. And when that Rubicon is crossed, there is no going back. Leftists are quicker to violence, but Rightists are far better at it. […]

not pretty, but really good news nevertheless

I only watch the famous “Q“ pronouncements out of the corner of my eye. Much like the economic collapse that keeps not coming is the recent takedown of the deep state that also seems to not happen no matter how imminent it gets. “Q“ tells us to trust The Plan. That there will be some scary moments, but The Plan is solid. It will lead us to a happy ending. I am beginning to see increasing numbers of Deep State failures. They seem to be losing their war to take over Syria. The CIA’s ISIS army is collapsing. The North Korean demon is now cooperatively working with South Korea, China, Russia and the Trump team. Europeans and Scandanivians are […]

independence

I came across the article below in Waking Times. It describes recognizing and escaping The Matrix that nearly all of us live in. I am somewhere on the trail from here to there; quite happy to be looking at the machinations and mayhem from outside the tumult. Not that I can be fully removed from, nor that it won’t take me along when it goes down, but I will at least understand where I am and why along the way. It is far more peaceful to know when to drift, when to swim, and in what direction rather that futilely thrashing and flailing. I have been pondering what I might post on our “Independence Day”. Of course I was […]

population pyramid

This is snapshot of a really clever animation comprised of population demographics from 1950 to 2050. The top bar is a graphical representation of the population 95 years old or older. The next band is 90 through 94 and on down band-by-band to newborns. The snapshot to the right is from the early years in the chart. Very tiny, narrow top bands swell to a wide, solid base of youth and young adults. This is the picture of a stable society both long and short term. In the animation, each decade’s demographics are replaced with subsequent years in order. You can graphically see the shift from a wide-based, narrow-topped pyramid to a shape more cylindrical … and obviously less […]

cultural destruction – men and boys first

While many lay blame on the feminist movement, publicly financed by George Soros, The Bilderberg Group has spent half a century destroying the nuclear family where each member of a multi-generational family contributed what they are best designed for. Every strong culture throughout history has been much the same with age and gender differences celebrated, making them strong, vibrant and resilient. LBJ’s “Great Society” was a major turning point. That the people of the previously famous “Free Country” allowed that and subsequent assaults to happen spelled the eventual demise as certainly as a tombstone could. A more subtle, but perhaps more significant turning point was when the government involved itself in education, first as an option, but finally as a […]

The War on Men

by Author William S. Lind People have long spoken or written on “the war between the sexes.”  No one ever imagined that the “war” in question was anything but a metaphor.  Usually, it was waged over the thermostat, with men wanting to set it colder and women, warmer. A few weeks ago in Toronto, the war became literal.  A man drove a van down the sidewalk, attempting to kill a woman.  About a dozen people died.  A more recent killing in Portland, Oregon, may have been an assault on women.  How could such things be happening?  For as long back as history can remember, men and women, love and marriage, have gone together like a horse and carriage. The […]
