Eye of Newt wrote as good a column about the GOP defeat in GA as any Boomercon could. He’s kind of right but just can’t connect the dots. The reason, and there’s one, why the “Demoncrats” swept the dying state of Georgia is patently, painfully obvious. I have thought about addressing that in my next TPC column. I’m still waiting on Trump to finally ACT! While we wait, I may give GA a shot if just to entertain the few TPC readers who don’t embrace the TL;DR, the libertarian, or the gamma. You’ll know it if you see it. I am working (hard) on the next segments in my FP series on surviving the Civil War. Stay tuned.
Carlos Slim’s Blog takes a glowing look at the dissolution of America and the dilution of the United States – now unfolding in the small towns. Read the whole thing and compare the scenario to what’s happened to wherever you live these past 10, 20, 50 years.
As usual, the NYT gets a little ahead of reality at the very end: “There’s no going back.” Don’t be so sure.
Just when one thinks the deviants at the Fed can’t possibly slip any lower, this.
“This is a perverse incentive that says you shouldn’t try to make yourself better,” said Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic, who is leading a virtual conference Thursday intending to focus attention on the problem. “They are not dumb. It’s on us to actually change those incentives so that people understand what the potential is and move forward towards opportunity.”
They literally are dumb, almost as stupid as the idiots at the Fed. This isn’t even an economic or tax policy problem. But, if it is, then what’s the solution? Abolishing taxes? Demographics is destiny, and we’ve fulfilled it to the point of completely collapsing society. Whose benefit is that?
It has to happen. Doug Casey sees it and discusses it intelligently if a little too An-Cap optimistically.
Again, it’s a little too libertarian, but at least Casey subjugates politics and economics to their proper, lower places. He does touch on the keystone of reality: Demographics. It frightens people to speak of, but the things that hold societies together (or break them apart) are race, religion, and IQ. “Trust” factors into all three, as does the societal, cultural facets that come from each and from all three together.
Compatibility: we don’t have it anymore. The odds heavily favor a civil war in the US. A peaceful solution is technically possible, but we are a fractured people who crave the hard way. Interesting times are here and now; this video is a great look into them.
Civil War Studies
There was a Far Side cartoon some years ago that you might remember. It was titled The Dam Bursts, and it featured the residents of the migraine headache institute, armed to the teeth, angrily processing next door to the school for marching bands.
The United States is like that, except it’s not as funny. It also won’t involve just two opposing sides. Hello, there! No, this article is not about the American Civil War of the 1860s. Rather, it’s an early and incomplete analysis of the conflict we’re plunging into today.
The sides. The population by and large consisting of
idiots binary thinkers, there’s a temptation to divide things up neatly as they were some sixteen decades ago: two sides: authoritarian mercantilists wickedly allied with usurers against genteel agrarians lazily allied with incompatibles. Or, “North” versus “South,” if you like. In the interests of easy comprehension, we could approximate dual factions, at least as a loose template.
Ultimately, this war, like all others, is a continuation of the eternal struggle between good and evil. That rages on from The Beginning unto The End with us not knowing where we fall along the grand timeline. (Beware of anyone who earnestly predicts such a placement). In a sense, we’re looking at Christians versus satanists. This is an accurate estimation only as to overarching beliefs and ideologies. Our Side, possessed of numerous divisions, still values the good, the true, and the beautiful, all in honor of Jesus Christ. The other side is the dominion of the world, of chaos, ruin, and death.
A more progressive view would be of Nationalists versus globalists. One will note thematic compatibility with the most basic, religious breakdown. Nationalists honor the human societal structure created by Almighty God, destined to exist even in Heaven. The globos seek the destruction, disruption, and despair wrought by a new Tower of Babel, calling evil good, and good evil, and seeking ruination and slavery under the false guise of unity, nicety, and a fabricated definition of almost everything. One should note who stands with or for what. Those who favor the nations also tend to favor the families, the individuals, and tradition. Those who lust for the world tend to attract every manner of abomination and degeneracy. These are not coincidences.
The too-frequent calls for (or against, or merely in observation of) a race war may be misplaced. Given the (non-COVID) events of this year, the view is somewhat understandable. Indeed, it does look like a war has already commenced, but with one side largely abstaining. I can’t say those with this framing are completely incorrect; they just overlook, in a simplistic fashion, a few factors. Again, I hate to tell you old-timers, but it isn’t 1861 anymore. It is no longer a black and white issue – entirely. And, to the extent it is, it is more of a messy component of conflict caused by the most unwise mixing of nationalities or ethnicities. We have also, you may have noticed, most unwisely added some additional parties to the formula and in rather sizable numbers. The formula: (a level of) diversity + proximity = war. There are other problems with the two sizes (sides) fits all approach: for instance, many Africans are Christians; many Europeans serve, directly or otherwise, the devil; some Muslims will ally with Christians; your enemy’s enemy isn’t necessarily your friend; nobody knows how some groups will act or react; etc.
What are the odds? I’d say in the neighborhood of 100%, give or take 0.00.
How’s it going to look in reality? That’s the beautiful thing – no one knows. Nor can we be certain of when it will start in full, how bad it’s going to get, or how long it will last.
It is my belief that it has already started, in a slow, low-pitch manner soon to heat up. When? Look for a spike this November for obvious reasons. Then, it might go ballistic, or it might quiet to a simmer. 2033 was a good enough estimate. However, once the process starts – and it will be a process, not an event – it will go on for years, or decades, or even longer.
How bad? VERY. VERY. BAD. If it started with Molotov cocktails, it may end with B-52 runs. Or, depending on how one looks at it, it may turn out very well. It had to happen, honestly. Rather, it did not, but this is the US, the home of people who really enjoy difficulty. For a reference, remember that, at the beginning of the 21st Century, the debt-based economy had virtually failed. An intelligent and peaceable people might have opted for a simple reset. That was not, and is not us, sadly. The crisis of 2008-9 was papered over, compounded radically, and visits upon us again with far more pressing force. The economic collapse will exacerbate the domestic conflagration, as will the violent, flailing end of the international empire, which also could have been eased out of with greater harmony. The hard way it is! This all makes perverse sense considering that, during these last twenty years, the average intelligence in the US has declined by about half a standard deviation.
The loss of IQ coincides with the loss of morality and all else. The reasons why, along with what comes later, and how the mechanics of the martial process may work out are important, but will all wait for another day. It’s going to be fun, kids! Honest.
In related news, Freedom Prepper is running an October civil war and unrest theme! It’s aimed at surviving the immediate fallout of near-term events and is less of an academic discussion. You should have already started studying the big picture; last week, I gave you The History of Florence to review. You did that, right? Good, because this Empire, like Rome’s, has run its course and is about to dissolve. The best-case scenario would be something like the quick, easy, and happy divorce between the Czechs and the Slovaks. This being ‘Murica, we’re more likely to get something like what happened in the Balkans – messy, violent, multi-partied, and thoroughly devastating. Or, it could be a more drawn-out affair, akin to that of Italy described by Machiavelli. It could be something else.
Look for multiple factions, all over the place. And look for multiple places, all over those factions. I briefly pondered a future North America and came up with twenty to thirty plausible states. In reality, it could be two, or ten, or two-hundred and ten. There’s no telling how far the reductions will run. But, it is time to think and plan. It’s time, on the macro level, to pick your side. It’s time, on the micro-scale, to find your local tribe.
The good news is there is still time, just not as much as there was. Use what you have judicially.
Here’s another murder that won’t make any national headlines.
Police said Tuesday night that three teens, Keyshara Michelle Deans, 19, Nezyiha Zamir Collins, 19, and Tyreek Qumay Rodgers, 18, were all arrested and charged with accessory after the fact to murder.
Authorities were still looking for 17-year-old Devin Cordell Jones. A juvenile petition and secure custody order for the murder of Veronica Lee Baker were being sought for Jones. On Wednesday morning, the teen was taken into custody and charged with Baker’s murder.
Yes, the names are giveaways. And, yes, some online commenters have picked up on several other suggestions and too-common anomalies. I always, as you know, like to look at the school profile. Here’s Garner High, from which the victim had just graduated. Rest assured that the suggestions, anomalies, and modern cultural problems were there and played their respective roles. It can perhaps be summed up best in the graph one finds upon clicking the “Students” button. My intuition was rewarded; that’s quite the change from thirty years ago – and it’s a pattern that’s repeating across NC and everywhere else. Demographics = destiny. Destiny increasingly looks like homicide.
These are not schools. They’re not even close anymore. Now, they’re starting to resemble hunting grounds.
No changes, whatsoever!
For the generation of Americans not yet old enough to drive, the demographic future has arrived.
For the first time, nonwhites and Hispanics were a majority of people under age 16 in 2019, an expected demographic shift that will grow over the coming decades, according to figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau on Thursday.
“We are browning from bottom up in our age structure,” said William Frey, a senior fellow at The Brookings Institution. “This is going to be a diversified century for the United States, and it’s beginning with this youngest generation.”
This is fantastic news! But, we’d better get those reparations paid sooner than later or else, you know…
Thank you, Unsung Hero!
Representative Emanuel Celler (D-NY, 1888-1981) was the longest-serving Congressman from New York (1924-1965). During his first term in the House, Celler was present when Congress completed legislating the highly restrictive “national origins” system limiting immigration to the United States to under 400,000 a year based on country of origin. The goal of the legislation was to keep America an Anglo-Saxon country. Celler spent the next 40 years seeking to overturn the Johnson Acts and finally did so in 1965 as a co-sponsor of the Hart-Celler Act.
He finally did so! The (positive!) results are showing up, belatedly.
I’m not sure if there’s a statue of the Great Hero anywhere in this dying country. If not, we need to build one quickly so the mob can tear it down and behead it. (Celler’s 1965 Act was not that LGBTP friendly – especially to the “Ps.” And, he was (finally!) cast from office for not being sufficiently feministic.
The start of the now torturous venture of deciphering the census numbers, HERE. Previously, in the last century, this information was kept in bound form in libraries, copious but straightforward. Around 2000, when the interwebs hit their useful stride, it was available in an easy to use format online. Now … dig. It’s a done deal; there’s no reason to try and hide it anymore.
Expected and unsurprising news from a recent poll, at least on the surface.
- Great majorities, across party lines, favor socialism in the USE;
- 75% want socialized medicine;
- 82% want universal basic income.
Taking the 82% as an example gifts the best news I’ve heard all year! 82 subtracted from 100 = 18. That 18% of the people in the USE, the ones who do not want socialism, are a likely-as-not statistical representation of the population that still AMERICAN. And I was thinking it was probably half of that. Hope yet.
Expect more headlines like the following, only worse, in the future:
Two machetes and a knife were recovered after armed police swooped just after 5.30pm.
And disturbing images have emerged of a baby-faced teenager wearing a Camo jacket and holding what appears to be a large machete.
Footage also shows terrified crowds evacuated as cops arrested at least five people including a 13-year-old girl on suspicion of assaulting police.
Another girl and boy aged just 14 and a 19-year-old were also arrested, while a 14-year-old male was held on suspicion of obstructing police.
It is understood the violence broke out before or during a screening of the gang warfare film Blue Story and spilled out into areas where children were queuing to see Frozen 2.
Since the brawl, Vue has pulled the gang film, which follows two young friends who become enemies in a postcode war, from all its cinemas,
In a pre-recorded message to its viewers, the cinema service line said: “We regret that we will no longer be screening the film Blue Story at any of our venues.
Birmingham, ENG looks A LOT like Birmingham, AL. And also a bit like Mogadishu. Virant! Strong!
And, what a relief that the heritage residents gave up their guns and are now giving up their knives. I suppose that “teens” are still allowed some blades for cinema riot purposes. The only problem left (aside from eliminating the remains of that heritage poseperity) is the fact of violent movies like Frozen. Duh.
Lifespans decline as waistlines increase.
From 1999–2000 to 2015–2016, the age-adjusted prevalence of obesity among men increased from 27.4% to 38.1%. For American woman, the situation is even worse — the prevalence of obesity among them increased from 33.3% to 41.2%.
Adult obesity is correlated with higher death rates as it often is associated with increases in hypertension, high cholesterol levels, type 2 diabetes, and other health conditions which limit ones functionality such as asthma, sleep apnea, and joint problems.
That’s 38.1% and 41.2% obese (really fat). Adding in those merely overweight and it’s something like 75% of the population. And, despite the lies of 1965, that population keeps changing in other ways too.
A record 67.3 million U.S. residents speak a foreign language at home, the latest sign of the growing influence of immigrants on American culture.
Census Bureau data shows that homes that do not speak English first grew seven times faster than those that do.
The data, analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies, found that in the top five American cities, an average of 48% speak a foreign language at home, mostly Spanish or Chinese.
And in 90 major cities, more than half speak a non-English language at home.
The analysis said, “The Center for Immigration Studies finds that 67.3 million residents in the United States now speak a language other than English at home, a number equal to the entire population of France. The number has nearly tripled since 1980, and more than doubled since 1990. The growth at the state level is even more pronounced. All language figures in Census Bureau data are for persons five years of age and older.”
Well, at least we have a sane fiscal and monetary policy…
