Another grand anniversary for my only, or best link to pop culture! And she’s been busy lately, as reported by the fan paparazzi. Something must be up, beyond the ongoing promotion of Tiffany and Co. Whatever it is, it’s also evidence the gal doesn’t age. Happy birthday, Gal.
This celebratory note, I think, will round out the April mania at this little web log. More in May.
Gal Gadot’s main social outlet is evidently Instagram (it works as she’s rather photogenic). Not quite 2 years ago, the trolls vowed to “cancel” her. At the time, she had 56 million followers on Insta. Last night, she passed 100 million:
That’s the opposite, I think, of canceled. Congrats, GG!
Someone call that monomaniacal idiot with the Joooooooos video and let him know one of the society-controlling (((yentas)))!!! was up to her tricks again the other day. Watch as the nefarious Gal Gadot cruelly totes armloads of stuffed animals around a warehouse for distribution to needy children:
I’m not sure who Greg Johnson is, but as he was on Twitter, he’s probably isn’t that smart. I found this video courtesy of Ron Unz’s site. Allegedly, it is part or all of the Tweet that got Johnson banned from Elon’s spy site for dimwits. In it, Johnson correctly says the unsayable about the inordinate power and influence Jews wield in the USSA. (I watched but did not listen to it). But his video only showcases the Jews, some of them, from Hollywood – and not even the ones in charge of things. People have to get over the hang-up: it’s not always da joooooos, and it’s never all of them. If one needs to name specific names, then one should do so. There are plenty of examples, particularly in government, finance, and the media. I suppose he wanted to show some actors because more ‘Muricans would recognize them. But, then he had to lump Gal Gadot in. One does not lump GG in with anything negative. Because GG.
I have no idea whether Johnson is or claims to be a Christian. If he is, then he (and the rest of us) should perhaps keep a closer eye on the Churchian fakes before worrying about the rather decent Chris Pine, the lovely Scarlett Johansson, or even the wreck of Harvey Weinstein. Vox Day and John McArthur noticed the open and declared evil of Joel Osteen. So maybe name the right names, among all wicked or just bad groups. Whatever, make damn certain to leave Wonder Woman out of it. Because GG.
Greetings, intrepid reader. Here, we have another slightly discombobulated essay on a few things. It’s really not too shabby, come to think about it. I reworked it a few times; the happy, good news is at the end. It’s very good. The first little bit is not, though it is and has been expected. And deserved.
Economic Ragnarok is here.
This was going to be the primary focus, today, but I just don’t have the heart this week. Therefore, just know that the portion of the now bifurcated global economy in and related to the fallen West is collapsing. The crash is here (great read). That’s why 60%(!) of ‘Muricans are working, yet broke. Even the UN is panicking and pleading with the banksters to stop the slaughter. Know that expecting the usurers and their idiot political allies to fix the mess they made is like expecting the drunk driver to resurrect the pedestrian he’s just run over and killed – except the drunk probably didn’t kill out of malice. The big money strategists are now recommending … prayer. I’ve been recommending the same for some time; I’ve also been pointing out the inescapable nature of what’s in progress now. For instance, over three years ago I noted the frantic efforts to save the banks (again). Part of the Covid warfare involved a cover-up and worsening of the pre-existing financial crisis.
As I stated, I just don’t have the energy for that, today; the horse has tired of its beatings. Interestingly enough, my blog post before that last linked column, from September 2019, was about the “end of education.” I decided to run with that theme again, here and now. Today’s work is closely related to my post this past Saturday, Schools Cause Ignorance. If you’re keeping track, that one was education article number 391. This is, of course, number 392.
Say goodbye to the American university.
Universities are or were, among a few other things, places where competent professionals received training and education. Professionals like doctors. Imagine going to a doctor in the near future. Imagine that the doctor had failed basic biological chemistry. Imagine that, because it’s right around the dystopian corner.
Carlos Slim’s Old Gray Blog (NYT) reports that a horde of potential physicians at NYU just flunked organic chemistry. That’s the kind of chemistry that deals with living organisms and is thus a basis for modern medicine. It might be kind of important that your doctor understand, at a decent level, how an organic or inorganic compound might or might not affect your body. Important if you want to stay alive, that is.
Professor Maitland Jones is a living legend in the world of academia. He taught bio-chemistry at Princeton for years before retiring. He was a rather popular teacher. He literally wrote the textbook on the subject. One might suspect he knows what he’s teaching. NYU suspected as much and hired him out of retirement in 2007. Things initially went well. The NYT article notes that around ten years ago Jones noticed a change for the worse in his students. Simply put, they began to perform at something below the higher level expected in college. And, around the time of the fake pandemic, he observed an outright collapse in student intellect and skill.
He took what evasive measures he could. There really isn’t a way to properly “dumb down” chemistry without destroying it, and Jones’s old-fashioned methods had served him (and his previous classes) very well. Whatever he did, it wasn’t enough – because it wasn’t his fault, a problem perhaps beyond one man’s ability to solve. The student complaints against his methodology and their own poor results essentially amounted to, “it’s tooooo hard, me no like! Unfair!”
Despite his attempts to soften a harder science for the new generation, something gave at the end of Jones’s final term at NYU. A slew of his students failed the course. Some of them, on some assignments, earned solid “zero” grades. How that’s possible is anyone’s guess. But do remember many of these kids want to be doctors.
NYU did the courageous thing and instituted emergency remedial training for the current students while also galvanizing admissions standards for future students. Oops, no – they just erased all the F grades and fired Jones.
Don’t feel bad for Jones. He’s in his eighties. He retired once and now is happy retiring again. He did his part. Feel bad for society. NYU’s actions – and rest assured they are not limited to one course at the one school – are part and large parcel of the academic fraud I’ve written about nearly 400 times now. In today’s twist, this fraud may meet you in an ER examining room one dark night, probably asking you to breathe deeply while holding a stethoscope to your forehead or the table.
This year, undergraduate tuition at NYU is about $55,000 per year. Yes, that is up about 10,000%(!!!) from 1952, but of course, we know salaries have risen accordingly… If you become a doctor after graduating NYU, then your salary might really and truly keep pace with the inflation (otherwise, TFB). If you go the med school route, at NYU’s Grossman, or Harvard, or somewhere, you’ll need the money as you will likely graduate owing a million fake, nonexistent dollars to Shylock. You’ll need to repay that, whether you understand cellular absorption of oxygen or not. Fraud upon fraud upon decline.
What changed in the student body? Well, many things. For starters, the student body changed. As recently as 1993, students at NYU were 80% White Americans. When Jones started in 2007 the percentage had fallen to just below 50%. His ten year observation of declining performance oddly corresponded with a further, rapid drop or change in the demographics. The “off the cliff” as he put it, over the past two years, might have something to do with Heritage Americans descending to roughly one-fifth of the studentry. This may or may not explain things.
Whoever these kids are, they’re allegedly the kind of “smart” high schoolers who get the “good” grades so as to attend “good” schools like NYU in pursuit of the “good” jobs. Ask a Boomer about how all that works.
One would assume the kids in Jones’s former classes had excelled at AP, honors, or joint-enrollment STEM classes in high school. One might also assume that, especially with these “smart” kids, their learning was cumulative. Then again, as I noted last Saturday, assumptions are bullshit and the schools, K-12 through college, are anti-cumulative and force negative learning.
These young people, regardless of exactly who or what else they might be, are members of the iPhone generation, with the shortened attention spans and so forth. It’s not just gizmos at work; some many things, processes, and phenomena have rendered vast numbers of several US (and Western) generations literally unable to think. It’s not that they’re not educated. It’s not that no one taught them to think logically. They, many of them, cannot think. Period. This is real, and it is one of the many hard realities of the post-modern age; people today are generally mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically less capable and more damaged than previous generations. This is, to put it mildly, not good.
America’s decades-long experiment in dysgenics is yielding its sad, rotten fruit. I think this is a part of what Brandon was bragging about the other day, about diffusing the hell out of the population. For the benefits. Benefits like a budding MD who can barely read or add or think in a language.
This is, among other things, more evidence of the ten-point drop in average IQ over the past seventy years. Chant: USA! USA! USA! Just don’t ask a Zoomer education victim to explain what those letters stand for.
Yesterday might have been the time to locate and retain a young, competent doctor. In almost all areas, we have now entered the “it’s over” phase. Hopefully, it won’t last that long; but while it does endure, it will be rough.
Now, finally, some very good news! Way back in May, if one can remember that far, I announced that I had finally purchased a box of Goodles. Over the weekend, I got around to eating them. They were the perfect accompaniment for grilled venison backstrap.
I’m not a food critic. And I come from the South, where charmingly obese women can home cook Mac n’ Cheese like nobody’s business. If you know, then you know – cardiac event, greasy, cheesy good. My bowl of Mover & Shaker was not that. However, I can safely declare and attest that it is by far the best boxed Mac I have ever had. 100% A+ Outstanding! The cheese factor was around 10 (by ordinary standards – a little lower in the be-larded old CSA), and the taste was uniquely wonderful, mildly spicy and rich. Then there’s the heightened nutritional values – and it does not come off, in the least, like “health” food.
Congratulations and thanks to Gal Gadot and the Goodles team. Buy some today. I highly recommend it, especially at the low and reasonable price. For reasons – see the above links – low and reasonable prices are now a most important consideration.
*Here follows my most popular column and post from 2021. If I would change anything, it would be to add another seven accolades. Tomorrow, I’ll have another blast from the past! UPDATE: As of yesterday, when this was republished, Gal crossed 80 million fans on Instagram, up from 50 million-ish back when she was “canceled.” Good job, trolls.
If the old canard is true, that the sultry Jewess is deployed to beguile the Goyim, then Gal Gadot is Judaism’s ultimate weapon. I don’t think the ancient rumor is necessarily correct, but if it is, then in this case I’m okay with it. Heck, I like it. The ranting, raving, sub-literate mental cases of the social media world do not. Wonder Woman triggered the depraved, the wicked, and the stupid. With this:
Gal Gadot, Twitter/Instagram.
Pray for peace, incur the wrath. You likely know what the socials and the gekaufte journalisten say. Gadot’s simple, heartfelt, easy-to-read, and easy-to-understand message of peace was met by a fusillade of vitriol from the darkest depths of the underworld. For the sake of positive redirect, I’ve decided to reframe the attacks in terms of reasons why every sane, decent person should love Gal Gadot. First, I’d like to get a few things out of the way.
They say they want to “cancel” Mrs. Gadot and have everyone “unfollow” her. They failed. She’s Gal Gadot. She’s not getting canceled. She’s only gained followers since last week. Regardless of extremely poor media coverage, there is no backlash from her fans. They love her. Period.
The fools mocked about “ratio-ing” her after she blocked moronic comments on her sweet note. (The devil’s tools then shifted their focus to older, unrelated posts). Ratio-ing means they wanted to drive the number of Retweets (against her) above the simple “Likes” in her favor. A ratio, and I don’t expect the average hater to understand this, is a mathematical concept. Using the numbers in the above capture, from May 16, 2021, we see that the total aggregate of Retweets and Tweet Quotes is 138,500. Assuming that all of them are negative – and they’re not – then they are still outnumbered by the 145,000 Likes. Her message has over one million Likes on Instagram. People love her. People stand with her.
The relative few who don’t like her, sad cases, for the most part, call her a variety of names like Zionist, Nazi, murderer, baby-killer, Hasbara agent, oppressor, and, yes, racist. She’s a high-value celebrity, so she catches it from all sides. Israeli/Jewish loons and hardcore pan-Zionists say she betrayed her nation and people by staying neutral or by currying favor with the Gentiles and Arabs. Mean people say a lot of things. Too Jewish or not Jewish enough.
A few detractors may sincerely have valid points. Leaving a legitimate plea about the war on one of Gadot’s National Geographic IMPACT episodes might be misplaced, but it is somewhat understandable. I suspect she is sympathetic to all licit parties.
There is the legion of jackasses who just want to abuse her, her family, and anyone/thing she might care about. These sorts were leaving idiotic, derogatory remarks long before any of the recent events commenced. Some admit they hated her from day one. Last week just gave them an excuse to really crank up their pitiful garbage.
Many Gadot-bashers are, I deduce, robots and paid shills. There’s just too much homogeneity and synchronization across many of the comments on multiple platforms. That made me realize something; this isn’t really about Gaza and it’s certainly not about Gal Gadot. It has the signature of the Unrestricted Warfare described by PLA Cols. Liang and Xiangsui in 1999. There are multiple fifth-generation conflicts being waged around the world by multiple parties for multiple reasons. Some of them concern Israel, the Arab-Muslim Middle East, and the United States. Who and why? I have no definitive idea. However, a popular movie star provides an attractive vehicle for spreading the overwhelming chatter. Strange things do happen – more frequently than one imagines.
Has there been any effect on our beloved actress? In the long run, she’ll be just fine. As more than a few tabloids report, she’s gone Romeo Siera on the social front. She did an interview with National Geographic though it may have been recorded earlier. The world press has been as useless as ever. I briefly searched Israel outlets for information. All I found was a rehashing of generic wire nonsense at the Times and JPost. They are, as might be expected, preoccupied at the moment.
We’ve learned another great thing about Gal Gadot! She is not a Republican. She may be quiet but she’s not backing down or apologizing. Bots and shills aside, she’s dealing with SJWs. All they do is lie, double down on the lies, and use the lies to project what’s really wrong with them. It’s their sad burden to bear. Let them. Gadot was in the IDF and she works in Hollywood. She has thick skin. Still, at some level, the unjustified acidity hurled at her has to burn. It’s problematic trying to help soothe a terrible situation not of one’s making only to be stabbed in the back for the trouble. Something tells me she will gather whatever pain she feels and channel it into something else bigger, better, and more productive.
She’s a sweetie, they have an agenda. She’s pretty, they’re jealous. She’s successful, they’re ignorant. She’s good, they are wicked. To celebrate her and to contrast her with them, here are my seven reasons Gal Gadot is the best export Israel ever sent to the unworthy world.
One. She’s Jewish.
Proudly, openly, and from what I gather from fast yet reliable research, faithfully. In terms of non-ethnic affiliation, my guess would be Reform, but I’m not in the know. Were she a Christian, she’d strike me as a Methodist. The plain fact is that the SJWs and other evil-doers hate God and Gal Gadot is His good servant. אלוהים יברך אותך, אישה מתוקה.
Two. She’s Israeli.
Proudly, openly, and defiantly. Whether she considers herself one, she is a nationalist to one degree or another. Per her very plain words, she’s concerned for everyone – through the lens of her people first. Israel is her nation! This bold, kind defense is right, being in accordance with the actions, instructions, and predictions of the Almighty.
Three. She’s Family-Oriented.
Based on my research, she’s a mother of two with one on the way. (Congratulations!) She’s been married to the same man for over a decade – in Hollywood. Loyal fans joke that he, Jaron Varsano, is the luckiest man alive. He might be though his fortune is only one-half of the happy equation. She’s also lucky if that’s the right word. She’s a wonderful mother, wife, daughter, relative, and friend. Some of the trolls have stooped so low as to wish her children harm, which really tells one everything about the trolls. Gadot obviously loves children and not just her own. I saw some videos of her posing with fans at conventions. While she was kind to everyone, from the way she treats the kids, one would think she was the one there to see them. One will also note from these interactions the mother in her: effortless, natural positioning of children for photos; hugging, picking up, and cooing over toddlers; and straightening clothes without looking.
This is a Zionist Nazi Oppressor?
She went to a children’s hospital in the full, theatrical Wonder Woman costume and visited with the kids and their families until, as it sounds, they got tired of her. CDAN, which has nothing negative to report about Gadot (that says something), praised her kindness towards the young even when they interrupted her at restaurants. Again, from the encounters, it’s more like she’s the children’s fan than the other way around.
Four. She’s Painfully Beautiful.
This one goes without saying – yet it’s perfectly fitting. We speak of the good and the true. Sometimes beauty is literal. There’s a reason why the wicked hate beautiful things and people.
Five. That Accent.
The sound matches the sight. Listen to anything she’s ever said.
Six. She’s a Legitimately Gifted Actress.
Her most famous role is performing as a comic book character. Yet she does something beyond bringing a fanciful fictitious persona to life. There are, in the films I’ve seen, numerous scenes with necessary cliche dialogue. Wonder Gal still makes them work, makes them believable. One doesn’t see Gal Gadot acting, one sees the character. It’s enough to almost suspend my near-impenetrable disbelief.
I have no idea whether she had formal training, or if she’s a natural, or both. She has a gift. I watched a few of her home videos, social media shorts, and interviews and she just has a way of melding speech, movement, intensity, and keen intellect into something instantly convincing and marvelous. Whatever it is, it works. She does too. The hours and effort involved in her business are insane. Before the Twitter storm, she was criticized for being, surprise, surprise, a rich elitist living in a magic castle in the clouds. If so, then she earned it. Be inspired, not jealous. Be thankful.
Seven. She Uses Her Celebrity for the Greater Good.
She doesn’t have to and still, she does. With scores of millions of fans worldwide, she has the platform to make a difference. Her missive last week was an attempt along those lines in addition to her knowledgeable opinion about something very close to home. Using her very intimate remarks, she tried to help everyone. The dull scorn of an angry world notwithstanding, she did.
She does that frequently and intentionally. For anyone unsatisfied with her substantial philanthropic work, I ask, “What have you done?” We all know the answer.
Gadot knows people listen to her. They listen because she’s a wonderful woman and because there is a greater Power in and behind her. Ironically, all the baseless attacks of late only reinforce that truth. Proof of evil often leads to proof of goodness and, ultimately, of God. The wicked attack the good and the just because they are good and just. Gal Gadot was given her talents for a reason. Her use of them for our benefit is a miracle. Good, True, and Beautiful.
COLUMN: The “Arsenal of Democracy” – with Noodles!
For the first time in about fifty years, a little truth crept into some MSM headlines and stories. Carlos Slim’s little blog casually admitted that the Ukies, not the Russians, cluster bomb their own civilians. There’s something, something about blaming Russia, but still, this was as close to an honest admission as we’re going to get these days. Except for what Bloomberg and a few slightly more reputable outlets were spinning…
Today’s American “democracy” means the promotion of our more cherished and time-honored values: usury, narcotics, hoaxes, perpetual war, lies, idiocy, Antibody-dependent Enhancement, etc. All of it is in jeopardy because of something, something Russia. Or something.
One might recall that just last month, on March 15, 2022, retired Lt. Col. Ben Hodges, former commander of the US Army Europe, confidently told the gullible public that, “Russians are about 10 days away from what is called the culminating point, when they just no longer have the ammunition nor the manpower to keep up their assault.” One might then consult a calendar and realize that this statement might have been just a teeny weeny little itty bitty bit of total projection and bullshit.
Some in the media kind of noticed something off with this situation, which is really odd. It’s even stranger that they were allowed to mention it. The Times’s wailing about the “arsenal of democracy” was an admission that it’s not the Rooskies who are running out of ammo. As I noted a few weeks ago, the empire is so weak that it has to lose this one on the back of neo-Nazi proxies. The strategy thus far has been to provide the Azov-SS with intel and small and medium arms. Great heaping shipments of missiles, rifle rounds, mines, and artillery shells flow into Ukraine. Russia makes a sport of turning these shipments into burning rubbish. The Banderaites continue to surrender or die. Moscow rolls. DC panics. The MSM lies. The cycle repeats. But the cycle is beginning to take a hard toll.
It’s been nearly a month since the MSM’s military “expert,” Hodges, got it dead wrong about Russia’s culmination. Phase Two is now in progress and the SMO proceeds unimpeded. Mad Vlad has somehow managed to find enough men and munitions somewhere – probably in Russia’s huge manpower reserves and her massive armaments industry. The truth is that the US’s and NATO’s supplies of weapons are running low. The point of some of this new, honest reporting is that the choice manifesting is whether to keep funneling targets for the VVS and AVMF to destroy on arrival or to keep some of the stuff in case, you know, ‘Murica and NATO need them.
The US has lost both the manufacturing capacity and the necessary skilled labor to readily replenish the stocks that Brandon keeps giving away. The Boomers inherited a gold mine because the US of their childhoods was the only nation with a major manufacturing sector that survived World War II intact. They also stumbled into the budding Bretton Woods reserve dollar and the relatively high-IQ American workforce. Easy times made for soft men, and the soft men squandered it all and then some.
There’s also the uncomfortable fact that the US’s astronomical military budgets don’t fund much in the way of working weapons systems. All those albatross-around-the-neck foreign bases aren’t cheap. Neither is the make-work, the HR costs, the retirements, or the MIC graft. It’s not the arsenal of democracy, it’s the arsenal of globalization, with the attendant financialization and creeping incrementalism.
[I had A LOT more, here, but cut it so I could wrap with the stellar, improvised conclusion, below.]*
The US doesn’t make much anymore. The heyday was some time ago. About the only things we still make in large numbers are fairytale stories of grandeur, excuses, and fake loans of money that never existed. It’s all beyond stupid; there’s an element of evil in it.
In not-unrelated news, I was originally going to relate some interesting news about a certain railroad and a certain fertilizer company, both owned, in part, by the same certain investment institutions. The US does still have the ability to make fertilizer. They’re just going to cut way back on it … because banks? In short, the mass financialization of the US economy might end up meaning something worse than recessions and inflation. How about a little famine? You’ll eat nothing, and you’ll be happy!
Time will tell. I’m sure the powers that be have our best interests in mind. Now might be a good time to mention nationalism and national capitalism, but that’s a subject for another day, maybe for another country. At any rate, I have the honor of ending this one on a high note!
War and contrived fertilizer shortages aside, it just got a little easier to come by Goodles! We owe this development to GG. Here she is with the final word:
I thought to append the following to tomorrow’s column as an unsolicited, unpaid, probably unwanted advertisement. But that seemed a little silly. Maybe even sappy. So, here it is as a stand-alone. Help GG. Buy Goodles. Be happy.
