Guns in School: a Mark of Civilized Society

Tags

, , ,

Dr. Walter Williams and many others have written about this very subject before. It bears repeating.

Here’s a suggestion. How about setting up some high school rifle clubs? Students would bring their own rifles to school, store them with the team coach and, after classes, collect them for practice. You say: “Williams, you must be crazy! To prevent gun violence, we must do all we can to keep guns out of the hands of kids.”

There’s a problem with this reasoning. Prior to the 1960s, many public high schools had shooting clubs. In New York City, shooting clubs were started at Boys, Curtis, Commercial, Manual Training and Stuyvesant high schools. Students carried their rifles to school on the subway and turned them over to their homeroom or gym teacher. Rifles were retrieved after school for target practice. In some rural areas across the nation, there was a long tradition of high school students hunting before classes and storing their rifles in the trunks of their cars, parked on school grounds, during the school day.

High school rifles: more elegant weapons from a more civilized age. No changes whatsoever…

Whither Voltaire?

Certainly not the modern Post-American university. PCR explains:

When I was a student liberal professors found Voltaire to be an exemplar of the correct attitude toward free speech. Voltaire quotes were used everywhere in the halls of learning:

“Think for yourself and let others enjoy the privilege of doing so too.”

“I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend your right to say it.”

“Cherish those who seek the truth but beware of those who find it.”

“Doubt is an uncomfortable condition, but certainty is a ridiculous one.”

“It is clear that the individual who persecutes a man, his brother, because he is not of the same opinion, is a monster.”

Today Voltaire is never heard from. Dogma has shoved aside tolerance and taken control of American universities in which Political Correctness, an ideology or religion in which emotional-based beliefs of certain “preferred” groups with aristocratic or Vatican privileges, such as black activists, abortionists, and sexual deviants, cannot be “offended” by facts or by someone’s contrary opinion.

For any SJWs unfortunate enough to have found this page, Voltaire was America’s fourth president, a racist and slave owner. You know what to do.

Hollow words, hollow minds

It’s funny that, after killing the meaning of “American,” the retards have done away with any context behind “racist.” “Your” elected cretins were at it again:

The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives passed a resolution on Tuesday night condemning President Donald Trump for his “racist comments” about four Democratic congresswomen of color.

The resolution passed largely along party lines — 235 Democrats joined by only four Republican supported the measure — following hours of back-and-forth and gamesmanship between Republicans and Democrats, which included a GOP objection to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s remarks about Trump and whether she would be allowed to keep speaking on the floor.

The four Republicans who voted for the resolution, which “strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color,” were Will Hurd of Texas, Fred Upton of Michigan, Susan Brooks of Indiana and Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania.

Brilliant! Why didn’t they ever think to call Trump (or any white man) a “racist” before now? Next, they’ll cleverly suggest he’s “worse than Hitler,” maybe literally so. Then, look for accusations that Orange Man is a Russian agent. These people are smart if nothing else.

Vox Day on the new, meaningless meanings:

Nations are not soil, they are blood and birth. Because nations are people, extended families that share genetics, language, religion, culture, and traditions.

If America is for everyone, if anyone can become American, then America does not exist. Which, of course, is the insidious objective of the entire exercise in redefining it.

Of course, the idiots in the House proved the opposite point with the chosen language of their pitiful condemnation. “New” Americans, “people of color” Americans, along with all the many hyphenated (explicitly noted or otherwise) Americans, are prima facie NOT “Americans.” This week’s TPC column will continue this pointless discussion with a few actionable recommendations that will never be acted upon.

1) Move to woods. 2) Buy typewriter…

A very old manual model… Oh, hello there! Just making some preservation notes for the future. Say, wouldn’t you just love having your brain wired directly into the Matrix?

Elon Musk, the futurist billionaire behind SpaceX and Tesla, outlined his plans to connect humans’ brains directly to computers on Tuesday night, describing a campaign to create “symbiosis with artificial intelligence.” He said the first prototype could be implanted in a person by the end of next year.

Arriving at that goal “will take a long time,” Musk said in a presentation at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, noting that securing federal approval for implanted neural devices is difficult. But testing on animals is already underway, and “a monkey has been able to control the computer with his brain,” he said.

Musk founded Neuralink Corp. in July 2016 to create “ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers.” The company said in 2017 that its initial goal was to devise brain interfaces to alleviate the symptoms of chronic medical conditions.

It’s widely presumed, however, that Musk is characteristically after something much larger. He has frequently warned that the rapid advance of artificial intelligence, or AI, threatens to leave humanity in the dust, calling it an existential risk.

Yessiree! That thar future holds all kinds of Satanic evil humanity-destroying exciting promise. I’m sure this is all perfectly safe and will greatly assist with the enstupidation, fattening, and ultimate killing off of the mortal humans.

Not the Biggest Danger

Tags

Michael Rozeff plays ardent libertarian today at LRC. He’s certainly correct that the globohomo crowd greatly increases the odds of socialism. However, that predicament pales in comparison to the real danger posed by the mass migration of peoples.

I’ve found one recent paper (October 2016 in the Journal of Politics) that examines our situation with respect to Mexicans in our country. Mexicans constitute about 1/3 of our immigrant population. The title is “Partisanship by Invitation: Immigrants Respond to Political Campaigns”.

The study examined two elections: 2006 and 2008. The authors, James A. McCann and Katsuo A. Nishikawa Chávez, find that the Democratic party benefited much more highly from its partisan appeals than did the Republican party. The detailed findings led the authors to conclude

“Barring a major shift in the dispositions of Republican lawmakers and party activists towards identities and issues that Mexicans and other immigrant groups hold dear, a shift that appears improbable at this juncture, there is likely little chance that Republican campaign messages in any electoral environment could pull the Mexican-born toward that party, even if Republican candidates themselves are perceived as personally attractive figures.”

Although the Republican party has been no stranger to socialist legislation, such as extending Medicare to prescription benefits, the Democrats are worse. They typically propose the socialist extensions and campaign for them for years on end until they become law.

The biggest danger of uncontrolled or unlimited immigration is that it shifts American politics even more greatly toward socialism.

Wrong. All the old left-right, Dems-Repubs, liberal-conservative ideation is now useless. The problem is not economic nor even purely political. When it comes down to it, the kind of socio-economic structure is irrelevant. That’s because the open borders agenda is far worse than any scheme heretofore practiced outside of ancient Babylon (maybe Sodom and Gomorrah). Old hardline Soviet Communism, while less than desirable, was better. For all its problems, it did not seek to destroy the Soviet Nation and People. Globalism does.

The true danger of allowing mass migration and unfettered “free markets,” is that they destroy families, communities, nations, and peoples. Literally, almost nothing is left but an incompatible mass of jumbled humanity without any common culture or tradition. The exception to the “almost nothing” is violence. Power-loving Republicans, power-loving Democrats, and pot-loving Libertarians are steering us gleefully if stupidly into war. And that, when it comes, is a little worse than the loss of property rights.

The current scheme isn’t predictive of or prerequisite to collapse. It is a collapse in progress. Vox Day illustrates using the Trump-Omar row as an example. Read that.

Then you know the truth is being told. (((Ariana Cohen))) takes Trump to task for defending America. She, Bill Crystal, Benny Shapiro, and the rest are more anti-Posterity than the liberal left has ever been.

President Trump whacked the beehive Sunday, setting off an unnecessary controversy that understandably got Democrats upset.

In a poorly worded tweet storm directed at freshman Democrat congresswomen who trash talk him and America regularly, the president went off: “So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how….it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”

First off, there are a few problems with his tweet, starting with the fact that three of the four congresswomen he’s referring to were born in the United States — so they’re not going anywhere.

The only problem is with the non-Westerners who invade, subvert, destroy, and refuse to recognize reality and refuse to go away. It’s time for all of them to go home. Now.

Statutes of Fraud

Some attorneys will get the wordplay…

A starter list of what’s gone wrong these past eleven decades or so, leading us here, to the brink.

The United States of America seems to have a suicide wish as it wanders aimlessly down a continually narrowing path that can only lead to national ruin. Is this a premeditated act of self-annihilation or simply a series of foolish choices?

Before a nation can be effectively destroyed from within it is necessary first that it be owned lock, stock and barrel. An independent, freedom-loving people are less easily controlled than one that is effectively ball and chained, which brings us to the first step in the program.

Create a Central Bank

Beginning around 1910, representatives from the leading banking powerhouses – Morgan, Rockefeller, Rothschild, Warburg and Kuhn-Loeb – began meeting in secret at distant retreats, and not for the purpose of philandering with underage girls, mind you. No, these elitists had a totally different sort of crime up their sleeves, and that was to dominate the entire US banking system. And would it really surprise anyone that they succeeded? This was achieved by the passage of the Federal Reserve Act, signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson on Dec. 23, 1913, which took away the constitutional power “to coin money, regulate the value thereof,” as enacted by the US Constitution.

As Anthony C. Sutton summed up the dire situation in his book, The Federal Reserve Conspiracy, “Congress handed over all monetary powers to the Fed in 1913. The Fed is a private bank, owned by banks, and pays dividends on its shares owned only by banks. The Fed is a private Bankers’ Bank.”

 A very good start. Read the whole thing and try to imagine it without the civic nationalist foolishness (Salvo means very well). Then, add to it the following:

16th Amendment (taxes)

17th Amendment (abdication of the States)

19th Amendment (sorry, gals)

The Wars (especially WWI and WWII)

The Imperial military

The Fifth column

The lowered IQs

The collapse of Christianity

The subversion by non-Christians

The Rise of the Total Empire

The Deep State

Gun Control

The convolution of the Constitution (as originally intended)

And, some more.

Kiwis None to Stupid, Don’t Fall for Gun Grab

The Christchurch false flag gun grab isn’t going as planned. A while back I presented some numbers about total firearms in NZ and the number expected to be confiscated by the tyrannically-leaning PM. Those latter numbered guns, I’m going to – without checking – estimate as either ” a lot” or around 100,000, give or take. In summation, it ain’t working out so well for Mrs. PM Grabber.

If you want to know how to beat gun control, look no further than New Zealand. Noncompliance with the new mandatory gun buyback law is kneecapping the government’s ability to enforce the law they wrote.

As of last week, only 700 weapons have been turned over to New Zealand’s government under new gun control laws written in haste in the wake of a mass shooting at Christchurch mosques. There are an estimated 1.5 million guns—with an unknown number subject to the new prohibition on semiautomatic firearms—in the country overall.

SHTFPlan mentioned the fact that Kiwis were disobeying the law, and things have still now changed. Gun owners in New Zealand have all but officially nullified the law by ignoring it.

And once again, it bears pointing out that responding to a horrendous crime by inflicting knee-jerk, authoritarian restrictions on innocent people proves to be an ineffective means of convincing people to obey the state.

Good on the Kiwis! Keep the guns. Confiscate the government.

What Goes Around, Euro Style

Galileo is down, God help the EU. The spy “navigation” system is offline, has been, and questions abound. A cyber attack?

Galileo, the EU’s global navigation satellite system, has been down for four days, since July 11, following a mysterious outage. All Galileo satellites are still non-operational, at the time of writing.

According to a service status page, 24 of the 26 Galileo satellites are listed as “not usable,” while the other two are listing a status of “testing,” which also means they’re not ready for real-world usage.

The European GNSS Agency (GSA), the organization in charge of Galileo, has not published any information in regards to the root of the outage, which began four days ago, on Thursday, July 11.

On that day, the GSA published an advisory on its website alerting companies and government agencies employing the Galileo system that satellite signals have degraded and they “may not be available nor meet the minimum performance levels.”

The agency warned that the Galileo system “should be employed at users’ own risk.”

That admonishment sounds par for the standard operating course. Most haven’t heard of this system before, nor do they care now. I first learned of it nearly 20 years ago, at a Federalist Society luncheon in DC. A friend from Germany, a then-JD candidate already possessed of a Ph.D. is computer science something, wouldn’t stop talking about it. We all have our issues. He warned me bluntly that the EU was setting up something far beyond GPS and that they were intent on maintaining secrecy. He said, and I believed him, that his attempts to access information about the then-fledgling project, resulted in his computer being “zapped” repeatedly. They did it to him. Someone has done it to them. And, the world turns…

Fat and Stupid: Can We Rebuild American Education and Culture?

I found this post from nearly two years ago. Since then, I have read the book and made, I think, the briefest recommendation without a full review. It’s still relevant, more so than ever really.

PERRIN LOVETT

Americans aren’t just increasingly fat; they’re increasingly stupid.

Today, Vox Day noted the decline in the average college IQ over the past six decades. We’re collectively down 12.3 points, almost a whole SD. It kind of matters. Smaller brains and larger waistlines so not make for a good or viable trend.

I also read a review of sorts by Chris Sullivan of Anthony Esolen’s Out of the Ashes: Rebuilding American Culture. Esolen may have some answers for the academic decline and more.

Anthony Esolen, a professor at Thomas More College of the Liberal Arts in Merrimack, New Hampshire and recently of Providence College, Rhode Island, has written a stinging critique of modern education and American society in general titled Out Of The Ashes: Rebuilding American Culture published by Regnery Publishers, 2017.

It’s a short book – 203 pages – but contains much wise social commentary and observations on everything…
