Two New Sites

Two new sites have come to my attention, and I would recommend them. Fresh content and theory. Despite an election with a change of power, there needs to be thinking, theorizing and crafting of how does one organize society or inspire. One of the powerful things with Trump's ascension is that this system is pretty resilient due to all the different nodes of power. It may be wrong. It may lie through its teeth, but dammit man, it is firmly entrenched and will not be removed.

The first site I recommend has an ambitious opener, The Fifth Political Theory. This one seems to have a focus on a probable future for how to organize what is worth saving and what wants to be saved. That is something we all wrestle with whenever you see, read, hear or say 'when will these people wake up'. The horror is that the scale and mechanization of mass immigration and population replacement is unlike anything we have ever seen before due to the technology and centralization of power and control. The Sahara acted as a huge natural barrier between black Africa and the European and Near Eastern worlds. Technology has erased that.

This new writer is focused on preserving the West and considering the West a diaspora to preserve and nurture. It is a darker view of the future. It is one that relies more on no Leftist or Islam singularity but also continued stagnation. A thing to keep in mind though is as Land calls it the democratization of destructive capabilities (paraphrasing). Imagine a truly revolutionary military or security tech (drones or CRISPR focused viruses) being in the hands of not someone like Weev but someone close enough to Weev's thinking. The sheer numbers of third worlders would drop and drop quickly.

The second site is one called Jacobite. No, not Jacobin which might be the best of the Brahmin Left websites, but Jacobite. It is 2017, which means the world of right wing punditry was proven to be wrong at every level except for a handful of writers. I have been told this site is headed up by J. Arthur Bloom and Rob Mariani, and in week one there are pieces by Nick Land, Andrea Castillo and even a quirky pseudo or two. These writers have a keen eye on the coming future in different regards, so this should be a weekly read. New sites like this should be popping up, and this group online mag should offer something for your liking.

A few years ago, I wrote how we were the iconoclasts. The development since then has been that the spiritual emptiness of the modern West is something that frustrates more and more people. We may be iconoclasts, but we are not so alone now. Other nations worry about Westernization or Western toxicity. They have good reason, but they also have their customs and traditions to fall back on. While ours are under direct attack, it would be wise to figure what works and use it to fight.

Read, support and take it all in, but remember to engage with your real life community. The true tests of the crisis will be in forming strong local bonds to help those you love and harden your towns. The great thing about reading these sites though is to know that you are not alone. There are many other people out there that are worried as well and share your concerns.

Weimerica Weekly - Redrawing The Family

New Weimerica Weekly is up. This one covers two incredibly strange exceptions that the media is spotlighting in its attempt to break down and redraw the family. Strange legal fights over custody of adopted third world children and the world of SWPL open marriages are the latest entrees from the left.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day started as a day to remember the dead from the Civil War. The holiday evolved to remember all those who died serving in America's armed forces. It has further evolved into an unofficial kick off to the tourist season and foodie holiday.

It is also a tougher holiday as patriotism weakens as the American identity unravels. On top of this, the idea of imperial wars of choice hurts this. I lost a friend in the Iraq War. Died within his first month there. I remember him shipping off looking bad ass like a Marine should and getting the news sitting at my desk at work a month later. I don't just think about him when Memorial Day comes around. I think about him whenever we are talking about the imperial wars of choice and our dead and maimed caused by fights we do not need to engage in or even supply.

I thought of him the other week when someone said my little kids looked like they walked off a TV set. He used to say my sister and I were like TV Kids, right out of a show. He'd be telling me that they cast cuter kids in the new show. He can't because he was killed at 21 and there are pieces of him still over there.

Remember the fallen on Memorial Day.

Social Matter - It’s Not The F-35, It’s Ossified Systems

New essay up at Social Matter. This one covers the fact that in all the talk about the F35, too many people take potshots at an amazing plane without criticizing the entire system. It's not the apple as much as the barrel. The leviathan we call the DC procurement process is too slow to adjust to reality and too many entrenched interests control the system to allow for a nimble, smart way of planning for the future while handling the problems of today.

Curious Case of Known Terrorists + SM Review-Preview 91

This is something worth digging into, but there has to be something deeper at play with the suicidal moves of the EU elite with regards to leaving the borders open despite terror attacks. Each time one happens, they know they sacrifice some votes to nationalist and ultranationalist parties. I've written before that the parliamentarian way they have things set up, the neoliberal mandarins have cushion, but the danger is in that bloc or blocs becoming too large.

Many of these attackers are known to police. Some are observed and even under watch as they get ready to attack. It is too easy to state that they are just enforcing anarcho-tyranny because the elite realize that each attack harms them. A multiracial melting pot with zero attacks is far superior to one with common attacks that leave dead children in the streets.

This is worth researching because there must be both a high and a low reason. First a high must be pulling strings for specific types of law enforcement and observation. Second, a low might be too tricky to handle for the law enforcement. Jihad and mosques provide quite the cover when jihad is woven into the fabric of the religion and mosques act as recruitment centers.

These recent jihadis have been small time crooks so known to the police might mean something different than observed for jihad possibility. They could even be run as informants and assets for the internal security just monitoring regular crime.

This is the pain of a multiracial, multicultural society. This is why people must go back, the boats must be stopped, the immigration flow must end. More pain will come and will continue until the serious steps and harsh measures that must be taken are taken or formalization of the no-go zones and ethnic enclaves occur.


Last week I wrote on the radicalization of the youth being tied to their presence in a society that resembles more and more American prisons. Weimerica Weekly was about all of the blackpilling around.

This week I will cover the F35 mega-project and how it was a project meant for another era but completely in the MIC corruption mode that Eisenhower warned us about but does not have to be. Weimerica Weekly will cover the odd open marriage glorification in the NYT Mag and then a curious case of the exception being discussed as a means to rewrite our laws.

WW1 - Talented Americans

In this beautifully staged scene, American soldiers gather around the piano to listen to one of their comrades play. American involvement in the war was really secured via our banks. All of those loans to the allies had to be recovered. American business had made bank supplying those Allies. America entered late in the war and hardly entered the battlefield for long before the Armistice. It was the threat of American involvement, the threat of American supplies and the pure numbers game that was needed. This photo is from right before the Armistice in October of 1918 in Argonne, France.

A Geopolitical-Immigration Bullet to Watch

The entire world is allowed to view the endgame that is wrapping up in Venezuela. The mainstream legacy media is even covering the pain in Venezuela. Online socialists are pulling out the 'it wasn't real socialism' line, but their Internet history of statement after statement praising Chavez's communism is there for all to see. Normal conservatives see the failure of Venezuela and can use it as the anti-Left ammunition that it is. Both are avoiding a coming push and the bullet we dodged by not having President Hillary. The Venezuelan refugee crisis will hit.

Venezuelans are starving, have been starving and will continue to starve. The Chavez government took guns from the people, and now that they have failed and people are fighting back, the guns are given to socialist squads to suppress rioters. The heir to Chavez, Maduro, may continue in power albeit with more transparent political processes. There may be a civil war of sorts. There may be a military government that forms and is aligned with DC. It looks ugly now and will continue to for the near future.

This will create a humanitarian crisis. It is already at that stage, but it will become worse and the international community will want to intervene. Once the power conflict is resolved, the demands for intervention for feeding the people will be heard. Along with those calls, will be calls to take in refugees. America has been doing so for years now, and recently even put legislation forward to grant them permanent residence. Those refugees were middle and upper middle class that could hop over to south Florida and wait out the bad times.

Now picture a President Clinton in office with the current state of Venezuela. The legislation for the older refugees already has bipartisan support. All she would need is to squeeze some GOPe types, and boom, we'd have a bipartisan approach to taking in poor, hungry Venezuelans. This would have been a nightmare and become a legal means to funnel all of central America into the Untied States. Florida is already becoming a dumping ground for Puerto Rico, so by the time President Clinton would be done, it'd be a weird mash of white, black and every single nation of Latin America in Florida.

Thankfully, we do not have a President Clinton. Still, the potential argument and issue is there. We must say no. If private individuals and groups, want to send food, send supplies, and send medicine, fine, but not a single Venezuelan should come to our shores. Let the Venezuelans sort it out. Venezuela is a far more likely future for America than simply Mexico or South Africa. While the conservakin and normiecons do not see the edge like we do, allow them to use Venezuela as a harbinger of things to come provided we stay on our left flowing current.

Weimerica Weekly - All Sides Blackpilling

New Weimerica Weekly is up. Everyone on all sides is blackpilling. Not just the hardest of right wing Trump supporters but people in the middle and even on the left. This is part of the decline. I advise one not to give into blackpilling but to recognize the dark road ahead no matter who is in charge.

Future White Progressive Suicides

There were fears 2017 would not deliver. It has. The insanity continues. The Left will not take a moment to be self-reflective or introspective. They do not do that. Especially now when they feel so close to total victory. The white progressives continue to deliver with the insane hot takes or emoting over any odd, alien person or cultural tidbit. This will continue until we hit the phase of the cycle with white progressive suicides.

There is a feeling a religious revival of some sorts will hit in the 2020s. This might just be all pieces searching for some answer to the emptiness of McWorld. If it is, one outlet will be in the pieces of the West that make up the anti-West, anti-white voter coalition ginning themselves up even more in their anger and frustration. Not just at whites but with the lack of satisfaction in life despite having power or an elite supposedly acting on their behalf. White progs are in a bind.

Some will disappear into hedonism or technology. Others will melt in if they do marry or have kids. That is a signal already out in the open from them, and it does signal self-annihilation. They will take this one step further. Their search for status and holiness points will push them towards a cycle of suicide. White progs will kill themselves in the name of equality to wipe away white guilt. It will be their act of destroying white supremacy and the legacy of white racism.

If this sounds odd, keep in mind this appeals to many different needs these white progs have. This hits the religion need with both the creation of a ritual and sacrifice. This also allows them to become the star of the play, so their narcissism gets a boost. All focus is on them for the act. Make no mistake this will become a performance art. They lack creativity or talent, but they can make up for it with one hell of a suicide.

Think of the target demographic in question. Think of the childless whites hitting late 30s now. What will they do in 10-15 years in their late 40s-50s when sex peak has passed and they are old? What do they have? Nothing. The rhetoric of antiwhite crap will be ratcheted up from the Left which will add value to doing this and they have no heirs. They can leave anything to nonwhite charities as a transfer of wealth.

How? This could be like the self-immolation of Buddhist monks to protest Vietnam, but that is too awful for the progs. Some will turn it into a play of sorts as they discuss their lives and what they are giving it up for with proper non-white props. It would give them the chance to see who would attend their funeral. Think even more narcissistic. They will use hemlock.

Hemlock gives them the chance of the slow death to pontificate when they think people will be absolutely listening for any gem of wisdom, for their inane stories and for their cares. What is tweeting, Facebook posting and random virtue signaling if not a grasp at some attention? Suicide in the name of progress for the abolition of the white race will be their final post, their final tweet, their final periscope, and the good riddance of the most delusional and insane branch of the European family.

May they bury the enlightenment with them.

Social Matter - It’s Not Spontaneous Youth Radicalization, It’s Prison Culture

New essay is up at Social Matter. This one attempts to answer why the youth are radicalizing and where we see this same tribalism take shape. Progs have created a situation and once again, act surprised that the people placed in it react as humans naturally do. The denial of reality is horrible, but the worse denial is that of basic human nature.

Others Get It + SM Review-Preview 90

Charles Hugh-Smith has an essay that Zero Hedge published that really hits the nail on the head about what is going on in the West. It is disintegrating. Immigration adds to it. Multiculturalism adds to it. Even if they continue to pour in more and more people from a variety of places, the fragmentation will only accelerate. Hugh-Smith is right there. He is very close to us but does not take the last step in his writing.

He and Peter Turchin have many good points. Charles Hugh-Smith sees sickcare for what it is, a jobs racket and rent-seeking endeavor. He sees the parasitic elite detached from the population it supposedly guides. He knows. He sees how the center cannot hold. He sees how centralization is now at the negative returns stage. He points out that centralization's effects are now all negative, and the positives are sequestered away to the very few. Eventually, the social effects will become too much to endure.

The tech is there for greater centralization but it is there for decentralization as well. Each element of tech that adds to greater centralized control can be equally applied for decentralization if people coordinate to value decentralizing. Nick Land has written about the democratization of massive violence as adding to decentralization. This applies to many other capabilities.

How many people want to be a tiny fish in a giant, fetid pond? The elite count on you not just tolerating that but wanting that, craving the chance for that.

Spend some time reading Charles Hugh-Smith's essay and his other work. It is worth it.


Last week I wrote on how rebellions fail or succeed if they have elite factions supporting them. England saw two similar attempts, with one succeeding, so the story was why? Elites need to feel threatened and feel that they have something to gain with the rebels. Weimerica Weekly was on the Chinese critique of the white left (baizuo).

This week I will write on the spread of prison culture, and how our culture is sliding towards it not just from the police state assembled but population-wise. Weimerica Weekly will touch on the blackpilling, which allows me to discuss what the first 100 days or so of Clinton's presidency would've looked like.

WW1 - The Last Message

This is "The Last Message" by Fortunino Matania in 1917. Matania was a celebrated artist with a huge career after the war. He had the ability to fill a canvas with emotion, which fits perfectly with the war that mortally wounded a continent.

Male Infidelity Will Collapse With VR Sex + Sex Robots

Did you see the Harmony sex robot picture? It was tweeted out and went viral. Not just viral in our realm of the Internet but wider. The fear from ladies was thick enough you could spread it on a bagel. The robot looked real, so the only question was a realistic facsimile of movement.

This is not the only development in sex tech I have seen. A really weird picture was sent my way. It was the marketing graphic which was of a well built man enjoying a set of VR goggles but also with a weird fleshlights looking thing on his groin. I was informed that it was an advertisement for the coming VR porn goggles synched with a fleshlight that mimics the action that the VR movie is providing the point-of-view (POV) scene viewer.

I have heard this called teledildonics. The program allows for a performer to 'work' a dildo that has sensors on it, and then you the end user place a fleshlight type device onto your member and her actions then send signals to the fleshlight to mimic her actions. Same for female users, and even an easier concept as it'd be a programmed and synched vibrator to the video. It is crude now, but wait five years.

The Heartiste Robosexual apocalypse approaches, but there may be one pro-social outcome. I am surprised he did not even consider it, but he is a single man so it is hard to step out of one's shoes. Yes, alphas (soft and hard alphas) will be able to accumulate harems (soft and hard in arrangement) as the deltas and omegas remove themselves from the dating market. Women may feel the heat and improve their resume for finding a mate if they value human contact and want to raise children with a man who is the father. The one positive that may occur could be a massive collapse in male infidelity (not female).

Roughly 20% of married men cheat. Surveys show roughly 15% of married women cheat. This often leads to divorce, but sometimes it does not as the person is never caught. Sometimes it does not because the betrayed tolerates it. Surveys also show that far more men who cheat are happy in their marriage than women who cheat are. Men just love to spread the genes. It's one bit of diversity we love (vagina diversity). Sex robots and tactile VR will drop that to zero by satisfying it without breaking the sanctity of marriage.

There is the legal and financial issue. Who would risk divorce to cheat with a real woman if a robot or VR simulator is available? No one unless they want to get caught and divorce or are dumb. Why risk the diseases out there? This will only spike if the antibiotic resistant STDs arrive and spread fast. Why risk the false rape accusations? Why even bother with having to develop a potential? That is some hard work. Why put in the effort for a 7 in contracts when you can have Salma Hayek 1999-bot at home?

Few think of the celebrity, model or Instathot licensing, but that will happen. It will be an easy way for robot producers to sell to a guaranteed market. These would be renewable licenses too in case people change their look, improve or decline. Some people could even license a specific look of theirs (Like a Prayer Madonna vs Like a Virgin Maddona). Celebrity visibility then sells each bot. It is a way for the celebrities to also make more money off of themselves. This goes double or triple for has-beens or older figures as one can imagine the Marilyn Monroe 1953-bot would sell well. If you think no one would invest in the creation of sex robots, imagine the money that would underwrite the production of them when they know they can sell Kate Uptons with an exclusive license.

"But Ryan there's an emotional or chemistry element to it... while we're not chicks with their lame emotional affairs, there is the point of knowing someone." Think. Do not think of a robot this time. The VR programs will be where this comes in. This is where you'd say to the program, "Hello SexSim, yeah can you go to my LinkedIn... take Ashley Duvan, map her hair and face onto the body of Olivia Newton John from 1979 in the Xanadu all white outfit".

Boom, you are getting freaky with a 7 from accounting except now with a better body. You've dressed her up and even run a Holodeck situation for whatever you're thinking. The social media sharing of today would mean a SexSim program would merely have to comb a woman's account to not only get imagery but basic movements, ticks, mannerisms and even voice to make the experience even more realistic. Like the Tyrell Corporation in Blade Runner selling their replicants as more human than human, these VR modules offer you the chance to conjure up reality. With your personal touches, it's realer than real. It becomes a perfect moment.

This is a bit frightening and I will not combine this with the news of the bag that grew a lamb embryo, so artificial wombs are closer than we think. With small sons, I have to contemplate the idea that my 25 year old son could tell me how a CRISPR designed male heir is at month four in the arti-womb, providing him with his first born for him and Renee-bot421. The fear would be that it is superior to the females out there for him to build a life with. Some horror stories do not need jump scenes or scare panels.

That scene may not happen, but this collapse in infidelity will happen if these two consumer products hit the market. Men will embrace it. Married men will enjoy it. The progressive legal system is only going to tilt more in favor of hysterical women. The women entering the dating pool at age 18 or 22 will be leaving an education and propaganda system that tells them that sex is empowering but almost all sexual contact is rape, some years later even if you did not think it rape at the time.

People create parallel institutions. People homeschool to avoid propaganda and security issues. Demand will be there, and only a fool will risk entering the prog legal system when a robot or VR facsimile experience is there.

Weimerica Weekly - Baizuo, the Chinese Critique Of The Left

New Weimerica Weekly is up. This one was on the fly but is about this Chinese duo of terms baizuo and shengmu. While this is just an online phenomenon in China, so probably small, it is nice to see that some others outside the West see what is going on with the West. I mention a possible strategy China could engage in that I mentioned a couple weeks ago here at the home blog with China and North Korea. At the end, I plug the LD50 Frogtwitter exhibit.

The Lesbian Who Molded Dietrich

I often say we are an echo of Weimar Germany. Weimerica is not a repeat and not merely similar. The echo is a fainter and worse version of the original sound. An echo is a trick of the structure that the sound is originally made in. Our current situation is partly structural. Same molders that worked in Germany work here in America now.

The same crass desires are served. The same roles are played. This is what makes us weaker, worse and unoriginal. This is the hollow, tired feeling to our era. The idea of homosexual as an identity had its start and its first big push in Berlin. Sadly, many of the same, worn out looks of the LGBT crowd are straight from Weimar Berlin.

Think of the cliché lesbian. ugly and chubby... wears men's clothes... loud, harsh and rough... pushes her lifestyle on others... political. Your mind has conjured up Claire Waldoff. Claire Waldoff was a short, ugly and chubby lesbian that had a radio show and worked the stage in the Weimar era. Waldoff was open and in your face about who and what she was. She was often in men's clothing, working that tie and pants look with suspenders like a good Berlin businessman.

Waldoff was also an evangelical lesbian. She was connected to the artist circle and recommended all women to become lesbians. It would be a statement! We can see with the benefit of hindsight it was a mating strategy of just expanding her potential partner pool. Same thing happens on college campuses today. Waldoff was, of course, connected to the communists in the '20s, but this comes with a qualifier. She even worked with the Nazis once they came to power. Like a modern lesbian, she was a true coward in the face of pushback.

Waldoff has a special connection to us though. Waldoff's style and persona influence us even today. Besides the lesbians aping men with their putting on a uniform, she has a deeper connection. Waldoff knew and befriended Marlene Dietrich. They went beyond friends and Dietrich admitted to being intimate with Waldoff. Dietrich would be a giant star and fashion icon of the golden age of cinema. Dietrich does not become Dietrich without Waldoff.

Dietrich stole the entire menswear ensemble from Waldoff. The difference was Dietrich did it on occasion, and while playing with androgyny was still feminine. With her legs and svelte figure in a sporty cut of shirt or pants, Dietrich did not look like a fat grocer on a wholesaler pricing visit, but she looked like a sexy woman of mystery.

Dietrich was a vamp not just because of her foreign accent but her peculiar style. Katherine Hepburn might have worn pants, but was not considered sexy or striking sensuous lines in them. Dietrich did. Dietrich's effect plays with us today whenever a sexy pop figure tries this. Madonna employed it liberally in one of her image reboots, sorry two. The video of Vogue may well have been a Dietrich update for 1990.

Without that specific playful androgyny, Dietrich is just another pretty face of the glamorous age of cinema. Without Dietrich's beauty, the style falls flat like Diane Keaton's Annie Hall look. Without Dietrich's legacy, it's a look that no one would try to retread. It is the possibility of a smoldering beauty carrying off the lines and the collars, but none of it is possible if not for one little ugly lesbian in Berlin.

Social Matter - Elites Determine If A Rebellion Becomes A Revolution

New essay up at Social Matter. This essay covers the chatter of potential civil conflict in America or France. Yes, the situation on the ground looks tense. Yes, the security is eroding, but what elites are threatened? This is important, and I use an historical example for showing how rebellions fail and revolutions succeed even when the pieces look nearly the same.

Comey 2017 + SM Review-Preview 89

You might have been worried 2017 would not live up to 2016, but you were wrong. Nick Land was right. It is only going to continue and speed up. Look at the FBI Director Jim Comey being fired out of nowhere. 2017!

Comey recently stated that people were stuck with him for another six and a half years. Poof! Gone. How did no one see this coming? For all the talk about Trump's leaking White House or administration, how did this not get out? Leaks by USG employees is one thing, and honestly, it is their sabotaging of the warlord chieftain who has usurped the throne. This did not leak at all. No one saw this coming. In fact, many thought that since Comey had made it beyond 100 days that he was safe.

Look beyond the firing though and listen to the deeper issue. Both sides want to jail the other. It's following the classic left-right patterns of justifications. The right wants Clinton jailed for crimes and to investigate Team Obama for potential spying infractions that are actual laws. The left has created a mythical boogeyman of Trump-Russia collusion that they equate to treason in some Keyser Soze fever dream.

This is the state of things from here on out. The nominal right will appeal to law and hope just hope that their opponents will finally see jail time that they deserve. The nominal left will keep pitching their conspiracy theories for why their opponents should be gulaged and murdered jailed. This asymmetry is the same as the idea that the right believes they can reason with the left and just sort it out with elections and politics, maybe even secession, while the left's academic crowd figures out convoluted ways to pitch the genociding of entire peoples.

This will only continue, so unplug from time to time, hold your loved ones and watch the rivers flow and feel the breeze run through your hair.


Last week I wrote on the way that the Left could formalize their destruction of free speech in our laws. As a Middle Eastern businessman once told me, "I can't say anything bad about Allah but you can't utter the truth about blacks while I can, so who is free". He was a Syrian Christian and fervent Assad supporter during this Civil War. Weimerica Weekly was on the rise of superhero movies.

I'll write this week on civil conflicts and why some spark and succeed. Weimerica Weekly might touch on the blackpilling everywhere from everyone.

WW1 - Engineers

Who will remember these mundane things if we do not?

The scale of war changed dramatically for Europeans with the Great War. This meant not just soldiers but large crews of engineering units. The past did have engineers that devised siege weapons or maintain Greek Fire, but the Great War boosted the scale. Who would rebuild bombed out bridges? Who would clear the destroyed trees? Who would refurbish enemy guns destroyed or simply move them back to melt down for reuse of the metal? I enjoy the nickname for America's version of engineering battalions, the Seabees. They will never disappear. Industrialized war will need massive units of engineers.

28sherman on Red Ice Radio

Henrik at Red Ice had me on as a guest again. We talked about the escalation of political fighting in America to suddenly reaching road war status. Maybe not road war, but the street fighting and expectation of fighting has begun. I do not know what he edited it down to, but it was a nice long chat. I hope you enjoy.

A Shakedown Of Elon Musk

Lawfare is a potent weapon. It is not just used against corporations or broader groups, but against individuals as well. If billionaires can be weaponized, then billionaires can be targets. Regardless of what one thinks of Elon Musk, it is easy to see that he is not just a billionaire, an industrialist but also a symbol. Musk has carefully cultivated an image, and hits every note that the 'in crowd' would want in a tech leader. It also makes him a target if he steps off the reservation.

Musk has done so, and is now a target. Musk even just listening to President Trump is a problem. Musk is now the target of a multimillion dollar campaign to split Musk from Trump. The man behind the campaign is Doug Derwin, a tech investor with a degree from (you guessed it) Harvard law School. The crime that Musk committed was not openly voicing displeasure with Trump. This is a high on high fight to discourage anyone else from getting ideas about supporting Trump. If no one of high status can support or even cooperate with him, then no one low will venture out to do so either.

It does not stop there. Musk's firm Tesla is now facing a discrimination lawsuit. The media immediately sided with the plaintiff, not just in reporting it but how they framed it. A progressive voter coalition member (black male) that enjoys protection under the government did not like how things were going for him and filed a lawsuit. This getting media attention smears Tesla and makes Musk, the Tony Stark leadership figure, look like a bad guy. Think of the messaging: Musk is a straight white male in charge of a viciously racist firm. All of those years as the future of green auto manufacturing goes out the window.

The discussion of these lawsuits, which even at first glance of statements look ridiculous, applies pressure to individuals and corporations. No one wants bad press. no one with such a high profile wants bad press. This is the power of propaganda that the media has, and by extension the Left holds as it is firmly entrenched in the media, academia, bureaucracy and judiciary.

This is a joke, but so are these lawsuits in general. What they are is a means for the High on the Left to reward their foot soldiers that make up their voting power Low with favorable employment and the potential to hit a lawsuit jackpot. Sometimes they can even receive class action lawsuit payouts where they do not do anything but simply exist as the proper demographic. The Left has in effect weaponized each individual group it claims to represent by enshrining in the legal system favorable terms. Musk is now a target and these weapons will be used against him.

Stop to consider the changing nature of sexual harassment claims. It was sold as no one should have to provide sex to keep their job. Then it was inappropriate comments and simply being asked out by a guy she did not like (Clarence Thomas anyone?). The goalposts have shifted so much now that it is merely if they do not get promoted fast enough (Tesla's suit) or a far more ridiculous defining down: environment. A woman does not have to be the target of any comment or pressure to file a complaint or lawsuits, merely know of it and then made uncomfortable.

Tesla is 85% male and 15% female. SpaceX is 88% male and 12% female. Even with these low female percentages, Musk still runs into problems from lawsuit filers. Musk's companies can then be told they are not pro-female enough, forcing him to create space for female employees. The core problem lies in the progs denial of reality. One can only hire what one can find. How many females are in STEM? How many graduate in those fields/ How many want those jobs? How many are better candidates than male candidates?

This applies to all groups the progs claim to protect. This makes their ability to file lawsuits and wreck havoc as another means to bend even the wealthiest individuals and corporations to progressive needs.

Weimerica Weekly - Superhero Escapism

New Weimerica Weekly is up. This one covers the rise of superhero movies. It is a combination of technology, an industry lacking creativity and pushing merchandise. Disney is evil at times but is really brilliant like their purchase of Marvel.

P.T. Carlo Is Right About Trad Dads

Several readers and Twitter folks have asked if I read P.T. Carlo's blog post "Against Trad Dads". I did. I recommend reading Thermidor for original content. Carlo is right. The tone is a negative, but the core message is right. These Trad Dads have a habit of using family formation as a solution to all of life's problems, and fail to recognize the reality of the sexual marketplace as it stands today.

It is an incredibly difficult dating market. It is incredibly difficult to find someone who openly buys into forming a family. Marriage and parenthood are great things and good goals for the greater good. They are not for everyone, man or woman. My message for years has been: figure out your path and then walk it full power. Trad Dads are trying to fight the good fight in an age of decay.

Carlo's point about the evangelical nature of some Trad Dads is spot on. I won't comment or even defend the bad Trad Dads like the Dreher types. Thermidor's picking on Dreher has reached epic proportions and is thoroughly enjoyable. Trad Dad evangelicism is as annoying as the evangelical segment of any group. Attempting to be more traditional in how one forms a household is difficult in this day and age. I do not know if I count as a trad dad, but my goal is a home where dad provides, mom focuses on family, mom and dad raise the kids and the kids grow up with a healthy home of men being men, women being women and we all pray to Jesus Christ at a local Catholic Church. I live in a red state, which makes this far more normal than those with blue state blues.

I am fully aware of our degenerate culture. Look at the blog posts I have made about cartoons, television shows and whatnot. That is me actively monitoring cultural products and warning you. A dad can only do so much and prepare his kids so much because they will end up jumping out of the plane like a paratrooper into the wider world. Trad Dads are trying to be protective because they are all products of their age and recognize how awful our society has become. It's an attempt to carve out a bit of safety to even just jump back to a 1980s environment for raising their kids. Not fully 1980s, as these dads don't want their wives working to avoid the daycare or latchkey outcome.

I personally think some of these Trad Dads are faking things. I'm a dad, and if you meet me, the guy you meet is the guy I am at home. My wife and I agreed on going beyond two children because we wanted to, and trust me, as we contemplate anymore we recognize our goals and focus are out of whack with broader society. I mentioned to my parents that we were considering a fourth. My mom was surprised and seemed pleased. My dad's first words with accompanying pained, whiner look was, "Why would you do that?" Breaking a kid down to the cost-benefit analysis was horribly disappointing to hear but revealed that his orientation is around money (small souled bug man). Ours is not. My wife and I are different from our peers from our home blue state. We are fully cognizant of this circumstance of Weimerica.

With that said, how are Trad Dads forming and crafting a home? Tradition was so obliterated by the 20th century progressive mandarins that one ends up creating a cargo cult type tradition in one's home of things you heard worked. I've been pushing for a while now for people to push back, create traditions and resurrect old rituals and traditions into one's homelife. Think about that for one second though. Many people do not know the old traditions automatically. This leads many to just default to 'build a family and try to make enough money for your wife to stay at home with the kids'.

A family now is a rebellion in this modern age. Having a family beyond 1.4 kids in a blue state is a revolution. As /pol even pointed out, how did wanting a decent life with a wife and kids become reactionary? Carlo's essay has great points, and I am stunned how the Houellebecq character Bruno truly has become a male avatar for the crystallization that this is a rapidly changing time that offers little in stability or even a desire for linking to the past or future.

Carlo's tone was a bit more black pill and negative than it had to be. Someone in our sphere asked me about having kids and I said, "It's awesome. It's not the affection or hugs and kisses sweetness of kids but the discovery of life. When a kid starts thinking and getting the world, it's amazing. It's the gift of experiencing life." Yes, the world is an increasingly dark place. That does not have to stop you from seeking things to bring you happiness and make your immediate world a better place. It's like laughing at childless white nationalists that come up with depressing reasons to not have kids. Weird since Europeans had children through the Black Plague, Hun invasions, Muslim invasions, Thirty Years War, Hundred Years War and World Wars.

If you want to change a Trad Dad, if you want to stop the evangelical nature or teasing at the single men around him, start hitting him with the reality of dating. Throw it in his face about what women who go through the college Marxist indoctrination system are like. Show him the texts you receive from women. Shake his cage. Challenge him as you would challenge a prog, but with a different ending, ask him for a plan. Ask him, "how am I suppose to get from here to there?"

Social Matter - The Future Formalization Of Speech Restrictions

New essay up at Social Matter. This one walks through the long term narrative the Left has been building and fostering to lead up to speech restrictions. This is mere formalization of what we all know to be true already. Piece together what the Left talks about in their campus lunacy, and one can see where this is going.

Daily Caller Appearance + SM Review-Preview 88

With the emergence of street fights, I felt it was time to try to seed the Weimerica meme elsewhere. The Daily Caller was generous in allowing me space to write about the Weimar-Weimerica parallels, albeit in a toned down manner. This can introduce the idea to normies and name that national feeling that they can all see.

Street fighting is a deeper step into the idea. It's not like the attacks on Trump supporters in 2016. This is both sides expecting battle. After playing it neutral, which meant siding with the antifa, the Berkeley cops decided to unmask the antifa at the latest Berkeley meet up. They scattered. Escalation and optics matter so it is possible the Left's elite know a bunch of black clad masked people attacking nationalists (male and female) in red, white and blue looks awful and affects the middle.

I've noticed the Damigo-Moldylocks punch is sitting odd with some people. It's not just the acceptance that a young woman is bringing gear to a protest to 'scalp Nazis' or that we support a man defending himself by knocking out a dainty woman that attacked him. It's this sick system.

Damigo enters the Marines, serves in an imperial war of choice and comes home to a state swamped with Mexicans and other assorted Third Worlders. He starts up a nationalist-identitarian group for young men while on disability from his service. Moldlocks goes to college, runs through the Marxist indoctrination and then is an online porn girl who shows up to political rallies in support of Big Biz and Third Worldist Marxism.

It's hitting some because of the perversion of it all. Not sexual but what we idealize America as a possibility versus our sick reality. Look at Damigo and look at 18 year of Moldylocks before college got to her. Consider a different path and serendipitous meet-up. Like in a classic American movie, that is the young, California native that enters the military to fight in WW2 for the survival of America and freedom and comes back to a home he recognizes that welcomes him and by chance meets and marries young Moldlocks, the cute blonde girl from SoCal. Films were made exactly like that.

We don't have that. We have the Damigo-Moldylocks connection. It's not love but violence. It's not a happily ever after but a what comes next. We can't affect the high elite, but we can push back on the low culture. Build your networks, encourage positive behavior, be a lighthouse for people sick of this clown world. It's a broken down circus, so show people the path to the exits.


Last week I covered how a cabal of advisors pulled Marine LePen left on economics and missed the opportunity to frame the entire election as a referendum on immigration. Weimerica Weekly covered the idea of identity shopping.

This week I will explain how the Left can use their supermajority in California and their control of academia to get rid of the freedom of speech without federal legislation. Weimerica Weekly might be on real estate. I've got a series of tips for stuff to cover.

Renegotiating NAFTA

President Trump announced last week that NAFTA was going to be renegotiated. The blackpill brigade on Twitter went into "Oh no, he he promised he he said NAFTA would go away, what a betrayal" mode. Regular people recall his campaign rhetoric and Trump went from let's leave NAFTA to let's negotiate a better deal to simply complaining about NAFTA. This is a great step that offers opportunities for American workers with some distant clouds of danger.

NAFTA was a bipartisan effort to benefit capital over the average worker. Sold as a way for American goods to be sold cheaper in Canada and Mexico, it really was a way for American capital to invest in Canada and Mexico to skirt American environmental regulations and standards of living. It was another example of former President Clinton pulling the Democrats under the FIRE economy's thumb and away from its old labor ties. The only public figure at the time against it seemed to be Ross Perot with his patriotic sense of noblesse oblige.

It took nearly 25 years and another version of Perot to win the presidency in order to even consider renegotiating NAFTA. Former president Obama flirted with it on the campaign trail in 2008. The current system said, "Sorry kid, can't mess with the good sheep shearing business we have going". The opportunity here is that America can renegotiate for more favorable terms for the people that came out for Trump in the upper Midwest on the hopes that some decent jobs that do not require thousands in college debt would return.

This is prime time to hold Mexico over the barrel. Is Mexico a straight up failed state, a narco-state or a muddling state of great potential? It is hard to tell but failed state looks more appropriate. It is bad enough when the leadership in Mexico openly threatens to unleash the cartels if President Trump were to push forward with all his border promises. Note that even Playa Del Carmen is seeing cartel massacres and violence now, and that was the final vacation hot spot that was free of cartel violence. Safety and security is that bad in Mexico even in those lush spots.

The danger is that the Kushnerites and Goldman crowd renegotiates NAFTA and inserts a bunch of TPP style provisions and screws American workers over. It would be a renegotiation that shifts the terms even more in capital's favor. There is a chance the Kushner wing is this incredibly stupid, but if re-election depends on the Big 10 Sailer strategy, then they will feed the manufacturing spots of the Midwest with red meat. All of Trump's meetings with union heads since the election have probably focused on this. If labor unions have been screwed by the Democrats since the Clinton admin, they may be far more open to a nominal Republican's promises.

The media should be asking why it took this long for any president to consider renegotiating NAFTA. Why did not W renegotiate it after a decade of seeing the adverse effects and why did Obama fail to address it after a decade of supposedly fighting for the working class? We know why. The entire pundit class was supportive of free flow of capital and labor, which means capital since labor has a harder time moving. Academia churned out reports stating free trade helped by 1% or added 100,000 jobs. Academics could not be pinned down by inquiring journalists (on the same ideological team) where the jobs were gained and where they were lost. Lost in this were the detrimental effects not just in employment but in entire communities as plants closed.

For the blackpillers out there, to consider America ending NAFTA entirely was a pipe dream. Trade agreements between the three nations existed prior to NAFTA. NAFTA was a consolidation of them as well as an acceleration. Mexico had to realize this was coming someday unless America formally annexed Mexico. At the rate of Mexicanization of America, this might have been 2025 had Clinton won.

Trump threatening to pull out of NAFTA is so fear inducing because he was such a wild card that Mexico will consider any renegotiations as a best alternative to America leaving. This negotiation tactic is jumping so far outside the window of normal to drag the other partner closer to your intended landing point. A classic example is a man continuously hinting at eloping, and then when proposing says 'let's elope', forcing the woman to then negotiate up from 0 for guests as a compromise. Had the man said "100 guest wedding" when the woman wanted 200, the negotiations start from 100 on up.

Pull the blackpill IV out for one moment and wait to see the results of negotiations. If NAFTA becomes worse, then chug the blackpill nectar. Until then, keep fighting the culture war online and in your communities. You will not be in the NAFTA renegotiations room, but you can be the lighthouse for normies and regular people to slowly push back on the prog dominated culture we live in.

Stripmining Education

Last fall, I wrote on the futile way foundations fund education at Social Matter. Because admitting that the achievement gap has a genetic basis is verboten, education officials, parents and municipalities will listen to The Music Man style pitches from private foundations. What has happened is that education, especially on taxpayer dime in our awful urban school, is nothing but a cash cow for private firms that have an army of consultants, advisors and salesmen for the newest system that will boost scores and close that immovable gap.

Chicago recently witnessed sentencing for a scandal that exemplifies this insanity and the mega-millions involves. The Chicago Public Schools CEO was sentenced to years in jail for corruption involving millions in school contracts. This is after the man who ran the firm that bribed her was sentenced to seven years in jail as well. If you read up on what SUPES Academy did for services and combine it with how its owner Gary Solomon was busted, you see the scam my Social Matter post was hinting at with conflicts of interest.

SUPES was created by Solomon after he was a dean at a school. He left under allegations of misconduct of a sexual nature. After his departure, he worked for the Princeton Review. AFter understanding the education racket from the private side, Solomon then attacked in roughly the same manner that my Social Matter article laid out: educating school administrators and leaders.

SUPES had a superintendent certification program, and was the only firm to have one in America, a monopoly marketing point. Problem is that states do have their own programs. SUPES had a roster of administrators that came through its training program and also placed SUPES graduates elsewhere. In this corruption scandal in Chicago with Byrd-Bennett (68 year old black female), the scam is revealed.

Ms. Byrd-Bennett was a SUPES employee until April 2012, when she was brought into the CPS. Magically after October of 2012, SUPES received three contracts worth a combined $4.2 million and then the whopper which was a no bid $20 million contract for investing in academic leadership.The bribery gets involved in an old fashioned way that would have made the machine pols of the early 20th century proud. It was a money honest system that went blurry.

Byrd-Bennett had lavish treatment by SUPES while CEO of CPS, and these were gifts of sorts but the killer was the kickback. The CEO of CPS was promised a plum job after she resigned from her CPS position in exchange for guiding the contracts to SUPES. For a promise of a six figure job in the future, SUPES was collecting millions in government contracts.

Educating superintendents and principals is not going to boost scores. This is stripmining education for the surface gain of hucksters and the owners of these snake oil salesmen. SUPES was just caught and more blatant about it because hey, it's Chicago. Broad Foundation and the Gates crew all act in this manner. Educators and administrators go through the revolving door from the training to the schools back to the training all the while hiring their classmates and making sure the foundation programs get enacted for a price.

Like McDonald's going downmarket and accepting EBT, therefore turning the underclass into a money conduit to help its bottom line, these foundations are a racket to milk the education system run by officials that desperately want to say they are doing something, anything, to boost the scores of underclass children. This wastes millions as our education system wastes billions trying to fix the unfixable.

No one cares though because they want the magic elixir to close the gap.
