Sticky: New Policy: All Commenting Is Free for the Time Being and Foreseeable Future

At least for the time being and forseeable future, I am revoking my policy of charging $10 for lifetime commenting privileges for frequent commenters. It was instituted when I had 3,000 visitors a day. But at this new site, we are down to an average of ~200 visitors/day. It’s true that last month that went up to ~900 visitors/day, which was very, very nice. However, the eight month total is still averaging 200 visitors/day.

The old commenting system where frequent commenters had to pay will not be instituted again until I reach ~3,000 visitors a day, which could be quite some time, considering that we seem to be stuck ~200 visitors/day for some time now. So you all might be able to comment  here for free for some time now.

So all you pikers who got scared away when I suggested that you kick down some pocket change can come on back here and comment your cheap asses off! No really, I’m serious. Anyone not commenting because they think it’s not free is more than welcome to come back. Including all you tightwads, misers, and cheapskates.

Wink wink.

But even though commenting is free probably for some time now, it would still be very nice to get donations to keep the site running. See the post below for an explanation on how to do that.

I often do this work all day long. It’s what I do. I also have some other income. I have a very small trust fund, and I work a bit on the side. However, my health prevents me from working full-time at a regular job, and that’s why you feel very sorry for me now, and you are going to contribute to my site out of the goodness of your heart.

Perhaps you worry that you are making me rich. In that case, I will tell you how much money I make so you won’t have to worry about that anymore. I live on about $14,000/yr. There is no need to go into details about why that is, but that’s the truth. Isn’t that awful? Doesn’t that make your heart bleed? Aren’t you starting to cry right now? See? That’s why you need to donate – because you feel sorry for me.

Most of you readers are freeloading pikers, and I know you feel terrible about that. In order to assuage your guilt, you need to contribute to the site because the fact that you don’t is very upsetting to your consciences and it is making it so you can’t sleep at night.

A very interesting figure from the very early punk rock days in New York. Although he was heterosexual, he worked as a rent boy on the streets of New York to get money for his heroin habit. Lots of young straight junkies do this in New York. Johnny Ramone did it. You would be amazed at how many straight men will have sex with men for money, especially if they are drug addicts. It would boggle your mind.

He hung out with Patti Smith, Richard Hell, the Ramones, Johnny Thunders, William Burroughs, and all the rest of the New York punk maniac crowd back then. I remember William Burroughs came to give a reading in LA in 1980, and though I wasn’t there, the place was full of the craziest LA punkers – all the local maniacs were there.

Burroughs was a punk icon as he was a Beat icon and even a bit of a hippie icon. In the hippie era, there long-haired young man backpacking through Europe with a copy of Nova Express became something of an archetype. Face it: Burroughs is a hipster – the ultimate hipster.

All the people in this song died young. They were all shooting stars – after all, every shooting star burns out after a brief flash of glory. A lot of these types have an air of doom about them from early on. They seem headed in only one un-veering final direction with no way to stop them. Get out of the way before they take you with them.

It’s a great song though from back in the day. This is one more example of how great early punk rock was!

Amazing how many people this young man knew who died. Sort of reminds me of Lou Reed’s Walk on the Wild Side too with the list of wild characters and crazy behavior – the crowd that loves to bet it all, to throw it all down and tiptoe on the tight wire of life for no particular reason, or just for the Hell of it.

Jim Carroll RIP.

Boys Don’t Cry

I think one should not very hard on themselves. It is OK to go “soft and high-pitched” sometimes and let out those timid feelings. Even in the presence of women. They won’t judge you for it, especially the normal ones.

I have cried in front of women including whores. It is fine as long as you don’t go overboard. I mean once you let out those nasty suppressed feelings, you feel better anyway. So, why suppress them? Just wipe your tears and girly shit once you come to your senses and be a man once again.

“She-men” are the ones who CONSTANTLY whine and gripe about their lives. Everyone’s out to get them, life is unfair to them, they’re just melodramatic and won’t stop. EVER.

It’s perfectly fine to let out those buried emotions once in a while. Even if you’re a man.

Yeah but you’re from India. Indian men are supposed to be more open with their feelings like that. It’s no big deal for an Indian man to cry as long as he does not do it too often. India is sort of a let it all hang out society.

The US? Especially White US culture? Nope. Boys don’t cry. Period. You cry when someone dies. You can cry when your dog dies. That’s about it.

Women here will crucify for crying – they hate it. They hate all weakness in men really, but so do Hispanic women and possibly Black women. I think all women feel this way, but I don’t know women from other cultures very well. Maybe there are cultures that are ok with men showing weakness as long as they do not show it all the time.

Some of our pet cats died. There were times when my father put them in boxes and took them out to the back (we had 2 acres) to dig a hole and bury the box with the cat in it. My mother told me afterwards with the deepest look that I still find very hard to describe, something between amazement, shock, profundity, compassion, and deep empathy, “He cried when he buried the cat.” The thing was my father didn’t cry much.

He did cry sometimes. One time as a very young man in college there was a wild fight at our house of the glorious kind that we often had. My Mom even slapped me in the face. Thinking back, I clearly deserved it, but at the time I didn’t think so, so I pushed her down on the stairs. I didn’t push her down the stairs. We were on the stairs. I pushed her down while we were on the stairs.

There was wild fighting and I took off with my brothers to the park where we smoked pot. For some reason they stuck up for me, even though I was being a huge asshole.

I think the fight was about pot. The stuff’s practically legal now so no one cares, but you all have no idea the Hell the rest of us went through back in the day when we smoked that stuff. It was literally a war, a civil war. You were living in wartime.

The pot-haters were everywhere and the shouts, condemnations, admonishments, and abuse were regular and ferocious. A lot of people our own age really hated it too, so there were  continuous conflicts on that front. Not to mention at work where things got really weird.

I came back later and my Mom said my father had cried after the fight. He  had taken my picture on his drawer and turned it face down. My mother said with a sense of gravity and amazement, as if announcing some rare but profound event, that he was crying as he did this.

My face was turned down on the drawer. You couldn’t see me anymore, only the back of the frame. What was he doing? Killing his son I suppose. Or saying goodbye to his son, an emotional funeral for his favorite son, the apple of his eye. The light of his life, the dream of his days, his favorite boy was dead and gone.

My father had absolutely adored me as a boy. I was his hero and his alter ego. He projected himself right onto me and loved the reflection flowing back. In adolescence, I rebelled against him in a ferocious way about a variety of reasonable things.

He thought he had a right to tell me what to do. I didn’t think so and I still don’t. Nobody tells me what to do. There was fight after fight after fight. There were even fistfights, but I found that when my fist neared his face, it somehow lost a lot of its power. Hitting your own father full force was too much for me, no matter how much I despised him.

Apparently this rebellion of his favorite son, of his dream son was too much for him. I don’t think he ever forgave me for that. We had good times after that, but things were often rocky in adulthood.

The last couple of years of his life I stayed with him a lot, and we made a sort of peace with each other. I think he knew he was near the end, and it was finally time for an armistice. And I am starting to cry as I write this – my eyes are watering up. Because let’s face it: it’s a sad song, my father and I. So you can see I do cry. Just rarely and not too much.

I am happy I can still cry. Thank God for those tears! Thank God I am still human!

But still, at the end of the day when it’s all gone bad, one last hard thing remains, and that’s:

Boys don’t cry.

I would say I’m sorry
If I thought that it would change your mind
But I know that this time
I’ve said too much
Been too unkind

I try to laugh about it
Cover it all up with lies
I try and laugh about it
Hiding the tears in my eyes
‘Cause boys don’t cry
Boys don’t cry

I would break down at your feet
And beg forgiveness
Plead with you
But I know that it’s too late
And now there’s nothing I can do

So I try to laugh about it
Cover it all up with lies
I try to laugh about it
Hiding the tears in my eyes
‘Cause boys don’t cry

I would tell you
That I loved you
If I thought that you would stay
But I know that it’s no use
That you’ve already
Gone away

Misjudged your limits
Pushed you too far
Took you for granted
I thought that you needed me more

Now I would do most anything
To get you back by my side
But I just
Keep on laughing
Hiding the tears in my eyes
‘Cause boys don’t cry
Boys don’t cry
Boys don’t cry

PUA/Game: Men: Whatever You Do in Life, Don’t Totally Puss Out

PB: Oh, so it’s ok when you say “sissy”.

Jason: Who adheres to perfect speech codes? Of course it’s hypocrisy!

But I’m not bashing gays – I’m bashing people too chicken to create better music.

You all can use this word sissy all you want, but I think it is ridiculous. Maybe you come from a different culture than I do, but in my culture, sissy is only used to describe boys and preferably to describe effeminate boys who act like homosexual men.

All other uses of it seem odd. And it seems weird to call grown men sissies. If you want to say they aren’t masculine enough, that’s fine, but there’s a number of other words I would use for the simple reason that we are talking about men here and not boys.

To be completely honest, when we straight men call other men sissies, we are not talking about gay men. We leave them out of it. We are attacking other straight men’s masculinity for a variety of reasons.

We are “policing masculinity,” and as long as this does not get out of hand, I think it’s a good idea. I’ve been way too pussy myself at various times in my life, and that behavior was not ok. I don’t care what happens to me in the future, I am never going to lower myself to that level of submissiveness.

However, if a cop or some dangerous person is menacing me, I might just go totally pussy and submissive to keep him for hurting or killing me. There’s times when pussing out to the max is the best strategy if you want to stay alive in one piece.

But men, really. Knock off the pussy bullshit. Just don’t even go there. No matter how devastated, down, destroyed, ruined, deranged, or pushed to the edge you get, don’t go total pussy. There’s other and much better ways to show your complete surrender to life than that.

Personally, I prefer to take a sedative drug if one is around and head to the bed, get under the covers, and sleep as long as I can. It’s pathetic to escape from the world like that, but it’s ok to be pathetic. I just think if you are going to be pathetic, you should do so in certain ways that make it look a bit more respectable and masculine.

When you’re hiding under the covers and sleeping your life away, you’re still a man. When you get that soft, high-pitched girly voice that says you are defeated and surrendering, you’re not a man anymore. You’re an object of contempt and derision.

When Does the Cultural Left Go Off the Deep End?

Well, me and @Robert Lindsay highly differ on the subject, as I’m more tolerant of the Cultural Left because much of it has justification. However, aspects of the Cultural Left have gone batshit insane.

I mean, people getting hurt over inborn (and subjective) characteristics they have no control over is wrong (the Cultural Right would disagree to various degrees), but a lot of stuff isn’t inborn, and to make it subjective is dangerous.  For instance, if a woman acts slutty and screams rape, or if a woman picks on some introverted weirdo and does a #me too thing, then that’s wrong, of course!

Other wrong things

Demanding that women/men sexually choose other races, and if they don’t, they’re racist.

Kissing the ass of gays beyond simply not bullying them as in bullying school kids just to be a motherfucker. Why should people be forced to accept gay Boy Scout leaders?

Treating non-Whites as though they can’t be as mean as Whites.

Subjecting kids to the gay and transsexual lifestyle as a rule and even encouraging kids to be transgender/gay – not just be a tomboy or classical piano player type.

Kissing the ass of non-Whites when clearly they are in the wrong.  I’m all for kindness/sane integration though.

School busing and other unnatural integration.

Movies and TV shows that seem fake due to unnatural racial percentages.

Anti-Bullying Movement Failure

Introverted kids will always have a rough time, and introversion is the real root of it, usually. Anyway, anti-bullying measures don’t do much good, so the best idea is to encourage extroversion.

Is Fat Shaming, Etc. Dangerous?

https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/wiring-the-mind/201501/whats-wrong-fat-shaming

Whilst bullying and negative portrayals of overweight people are often overlooked or implicitly condoned on the grounds that ‘it might help them to lose weight’, you probably need only look back to your school days for examples of bullying crushing confidence and isolating people.

An analysis by the Centre for Advancing Health indicated that high school students who believed themselves to be overweight were much more likely than their classmates to suffer from depression or to attempt suicide.

It is clear that pressure to conform to some notion of desirability is present from a young age and to not fit into that can cause serious mental health problems. The NHS has in conjunction with the National Obesity Observatory produced a sizable document on obesity and the social factors that give rise to psychological disorders.

It doesn’t work anyway.

Even if everything mentioned above weren’t true, it is becoming clear that victimization and discrimination against people who are overweight isn’t a motivator in reducing their weight.

A recent paper from Jane Wardle’s group at my own institution, University College London (UCL), reports observations from a cohort of 2,944 people over the age of 50. Those who reported discrimination or bullying not only had a greatly reduced chance of weight loss, they actually tended to gain weight and become obese.

When almost every country in the world has a burgeoning health crisis due to the availability and low quality of food and the increase in sedentary lifestyles, it can be very tempting to blame individuals for their weight.

All the evidence from decades of research has demonstrated that obesity is not a choice. It is a complex socioeconomic, psychological, and physiological phenomenon.

We can all do things to influence our body weight, but the most important thing is to make sure that we are happy with whatever our healthy body looks like. Obesity is an issue, but the problem is regarding the health of the individual not whether a given person happens to find them attractive or not.

Instead of an overwhelmingly negative approach to the issue which would seem to do more harm than good, encouraging lifestyle change on the basis that it is better to be healthy than unhealthy appears to be the key, whatever size or shape that might mean you are. The idea that only one possible incarnation of physical health can exist is rapidly proving to be a myth, one that has been lethal for many people.

The Coolness of the Nazi Salute

The whole Nazi thing – like it or not – has this “bad boy” forbidden image, possibly because the PC climate has demonized it above all else!

I knew this guy in school made Nazi salutes, and it ended up making people think he was cool. He was a former basketball player and was all around a bad boy but with a sort of “cute persona” to mask it.  I remember him talking about strip clubs openly in a college class, even one with girls in it. That wasn’t so cool but that’s the sort of guy he was.

Fake Bad Boy

He wasn’t really all he made himself out to be. He’d probably give the shirt off his back to a Black man.  He was more the type who was fed up with Blacks, and he didn’t feel like he had to kiss their ass if they started something.

The Ultimate Bad Boy

The Amon Gothe character in Schindler’s List seemed to top it. Man, that was some good acting. As horrible as that person was, I’m sure tons of men fantasized about being him.

That guy’s crimes in the movie included shooting prisoners in cold blood just to be an ass, shooting Jews in the courtyard from his balcony just for fun, and constantly raping his Jewish sex slave.

And I’ve heard is that the real Amon Gothe was even worse than that!

Does Shaming Stop Behavior?

Actually, in regards to things which are in-born characteristics (fat, skinny, race etc.) it doesn’t. In that case, it’s no wonder the Cultural Left is so more powerful. I mean, the most you get from shaming is a lot of resentment, but this fact is lost on the Cultural Right who think they can bully people into being what they want. Well, maybe they can but they won’t get true believers.

Real Remorse and Change

It’s like when I took tips from a table at a restaurant, got in trouble but then felt bad about it because I loved the people at the restaurant.

For example

So, if a fat person truly has to change to save their health (some fat people don’t), they can be encouraged to change in a nice way – a way which produced a genuine convert.

Hard Music Also Becoming Generic

Well, making things hard doesn’t always make it cool. Well, the hair bands proved that in the 80s, and with newer music like Nickleback and its clones, we see the same thing.

O.K., here is my theory. It’s too serious and there’s no sex.  Yeah, just a bunch of bearded, tattooed guys who I guess are misogynists or something (or did they lose their pecker in the war? Forrest Gump quote – lol) who hate sex.  Well, at least the hair bands tried to be fun!

Theory as to Why My Friend’s Band Failed

Well, looking at how everyone is listening to soft music – with most of it being generic “baby food” – how is this surprising? I mean, what corporations are going to front real rock like say Soundgarden these days?

Of course, this is just a theory, but it’s highly plausible.

Anyway, with new music – maybe cause music creators are too sissy to be even a little adventurous – there is simply nothing which puts you in awe. I mean, will today’s music be interesting in 100 years – or even 20?

Music Bad These Days? Seems So, But…

https://www.mandatory.com/culture/1062828-11-reasons-music-sucks-now-more-than-ever

Since 1955, music has become utterly homogeneous. Variety is gone. According to Scientific American, “Musicians today seem to be less adventurous in moving from one chord or note to another, instead following the paths well-trod by their predecessors and contemporaries.”

Everything’s the same, and everything sucks.

Actually, this isn’t the case. There is good music but it’s not getting attention, making the top 10 etc. Well, I suppose it’s because of the new business model of music where, since people are not buying albums, other ways of revenue have to be made.

Anyhow, I’m not hearing anything like classic rock (or classic rap, whatever etc..) these days, or stuff as powerful, yet new.

The Billboard 100 now?

Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Macklemore, One Direction, Skrillex, Nick Jonas, Chris Brown, Meghan Trainor. All of them are on the list. Maybe I’m going through a bad phase of Grampa Simpson, but I see a problem of apocalyptic proportions with this.

Topping the charts?

In 2015, such softies as Fun., Ed Sheeran, Coldplay and Maroon 5 topped the charts. In 1997, we had The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Sugar Ray, Everclear, Third Eye Blind and The Wallflowers. Something changed (though one can argue rock in general has been progressively neutered since the 1960s).

On a side note, could you imagine Pamela Anderson and Fun’s Nate Ruess banging on a yacht? Me neither.

Well, I’m not saying soft music can’t be powerful and wonderful. Look at Bread. But it’s sort of like the case of the art students taking over the Democratic Party.

A Black Man Tried to Join the KKK

Polar Bear: Hard to take a Black NS salute seriously.

There’s an actual true story about a Black man who sincerely tried to join the KKK. He approached a local group and asked to join. The KKK guys were taken aback:

You’re Black. Why in the Hell do you want to join the KKK?

The Black man said:

I don’t like niggers either.

Even my Mom thinks that one is funny, and she’s not actually racist at all, though SJW’s would say she is because she is a longstanding race realist.

I am told that racial or racist humor is not funny, and no one is supposed to laugh at it else you are a racist. I don’t know about that.

On Niggermania, Chimpout, and Other Racist Humor Sites

Apparently laughing at racist jokes makes you a racist. I don’t know about that. I mean some awful humor is really funny, right?

The guys at Niggermania and Chimpout are basically awful people. And everyone on there is damned racist. To any Black people on this site – trust me, they are not your friends!

However, I did used to go there for a while because they were so damned hilarious. I mean I might feel guilty for laughing, but that stuff was damned funny. Sure, a lot of it was cruel, but it wasn’t murderous or genocidal. They were mostly just ridiculing Blacks and definitely looking down on them. They regarded them as hilarious objects of derision.

However, the overall mood there was not particularly hateful in most of the humor forums. It seemed like they were laughing too hard at Blacks to get into really vicious and malicious hatred of them. Have you ever noticed that when people are rolling on the floor laughing, even if they are ridiculing someone, it seems hard for them to hate that person? Laughter seems to dissipate brutal hatred and vice versa.

Unless you are a gleaming-eyed sadist, it seems that you are either laughing or hating, but you can’t really do both to a full extent. The more you laugh, the more the truly vicious hated seems to take a back seat. It’s like if you let that brutal hatred in, you wouldn’t be able to laugh so hard.

Also when you are laughing at someone, you aren’t taking them seriously. It order to destructively hate someone, it seems that you have to stop laughing about them and start to take them very seriously. Real  hatred is not a laughing matter. It’s serious stuff. Do you follow?

There was a feature called Nigger World Tour on one of those sites. I forget which. It’s not what you think. It’s a tour, travelogue, or guide to the Black countries of the world. And face it, a lot of them are pretty screwed up. That was one of the funniest things I’ve ever read.

Those sites are not White Supremacist. WN’s keep trying to join but the sites keep shooting them down by saying that they only dislike Blacks; they don’t dislike other races. There are quite a few non-White anti-Black racists on there. There are some Asians and Hispanics on there, and there is a rather shocking number of Indians on there. I get the feeling that Indians really don’t like Black people.

It feels bad to pity Black people, but it’s sad how many other races don’t like them. On the other hand, maybe that’s a warning sign that too many Black people don’t act real great. I mean where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

If only a couple of other groups hated Blacks, we could chalk it up to other things or unreason. But when the dislike extends to all sorts of different groups that don’t have much connection to each other, it’s hard to make the case that all of the animus is utterly irrational, which is the anti-racist line of course.

Racism in general is immoral for sure but a lot of it is not entirely irrational. Do you blame Israeli Jews for hating Arabs? I am pro-Palestinian and I utterly despise Israel and don’t think much of the Jews who live there, but one must look at this fairly.

If you are a Jew and you live there, Arabs are people who are trying to murder you. I have a hard time not disliking people who want to murder me, sorry. I don’t care how much I deserve it. If you want to murder me and would definitely do it if you could get access to me and carry it out, I’m sorry. I’m going to hate y’all.

On those sites, I would laugh my ass off and then feel guilty. I do have a confession to make though and I really hate to say it. It felt damn good to laugh at Black people. Now I don’t want to laugh at my Black friends because I like them, they act good, and I don’t like to belittle and ridicule my friends. Why did it feel good to laugh at anti-Black humor?

It’s like with women in the post recently. I’m a liberal. I’ve been a liberal my whole life. I’ve never felt a lot of overt hatred or dislike for Black people, even when I should have when I taught in the ghetto.

I used to joke that at the end of the school day, I was ready to join the KKK, but that wasn’t really true. Also most of the Black teachers and administrators were fine people. Even some of the Black kids were perfectly ok, especially in high school. The lower grades acted a lot worse.

But the hatred was mixed in with pity. I really got the feeling that some of the younger ones could not control themselves. There was one intelligent 10 year old boy who I kept having to discipline. I started to feel sorry for him after a bit because it seemed like he could not control his boisterousness and jack in the box activity. It seemed like there was something wrong with him, at least at that developmental state.

So why did laughing at those sites feel so damned good. As a liberal I am not allowed to feel much hatred, rage or even anger at Black people. I simply don’t experience that, even when reading about vicious Black crimes. It’s like I’ve been immunized not to think that way.

But I am absorbing all of that tidal wave of bad Black behavior anyway. And apparently it’s been pissing me off, even though I don’t experience it much cognitively. I either suppress or even repress my rage. At any rate, I push it down inside of me, bury it. In psychology, some think that you don’t really bury anything. Instead you’re just putting a lid on a boiling pot.

Obviously any of your interred stuff tends to come out in dreams. But it can come out in other ways. Suppression and repression are like putting a lid on a pan of boiling water. You think you are going to stop the boiling action by capping it, but really all you do is delay it and sooner or later, the suppressed boiling action bubbles over the lid of the pan.

After pushing all that anger down, I get exposed to this anti-Black humor and all that bottled up rage that I stored up as a liberal unable to express anger towards these people came pouring out. It felt very good, like a pack of rocks had been lifted from my shoulders. It was also a harmless outlet for this bottled up anger because I won’t allow myself to express it in any other way.

I realize sites like this are wrong, but racist humor is like bullying and a lot of other unpleasant and probably permanent aspects of being human. It’s not going away. So what to do, then?

I thought hey, why don’t Blacks make sites like this making fun of us Whites in a similar way? As long as it wasn’t too vicious, I would  probably laugh at it. Paul Mooney’s humor is very anti-White, but I roll on the floor every time I hear him. He spears us Whites hard and deep, and damn if we don’t deserve it.

I haven’t been to those sites in a while, as I feel too guilty to go there.

My Musical Preferences

Shesinparties: Regarding music, I like it less and less as the years go by. Maybe old age, but that doesn’t make much sense in my case.

Before I was born: 1955-1979 (birth of rock n roll through 70s) similar to my 80s taste, and nearly as strong. I like it.

Preteens: 1980s- Love Black and White music. Macho, chicky, and gay types of music. Love a variety of White music (punk, new wave, metal) Strong White underground scene. The zenith for me.

Teens: 1990s- Love White music still. But I gave up on Black music at this point. Like macho, but less chicky and gay music.

2000s music- Like White music still, but less variety. Not into chicky and gay types of music.

2010s- I only like White chicky music. Not into man music at this point.

I went from liking a variety of music to White chicks music. I wonder what I will like the next decade. Gay Arabian music?

Gay Arabian music is hot. You need to check it out. Very underground scene.

I  have really only listened to what could best be called White music all my life, although I did like disco, Motown, and funk, all forms of Black music. Hendrix wasn’t playing Black music.

Never been into any other ethnic music, sorry, although King Sunny Ade and Sun Ra Arkestra West African music is damn good.

Not into Black jazz or R & B either. Some soul music is ok. I like Stevie Wonder a lot, and I do like James Brown.

I like a lot of genres within White music though. Face it, rock and all of its forms and offshoots, folk, country, and electronic music are all de facto White music; non-Whites can definitely play this stuff, for the most part they don’t.

What the Hell is chick music? I have no idea what that even is.

What the Hell is fag music, I mean gay music? Village People? Soft Cell?

1955-1979 (Birth of Rock n Roll through 70s) similar to my 80s taste, and nearly as strong. I like it.

I was listening to this music only in my teens and early 20’s. I didn’t listen to any music as a preteen. Of course this is my favorite.

Preteens: 1980s- Love Black and White music. Macho, chicky, and gay types of music. Love a variety of White music. (Punk New Wave Metal) Strong White underground scene. The zenith for me.

I do like this but especially towards the early 80’s when I was much more into it. I love punk, new wave, and underground. Probably not gay, Black, or chick music though, whatever that means.

Teens: 1990s- Love White music still. But I gave up on Black music at this point. Like macho, but less chicky and gay music.

2000s music- Like White music still, but less variety. Not into chicky and gay types of music.

2010s- I only like White chicky music. Not into man music at this point.

I don’t know much about music during these eras, though it seemed to me that early 90’s music was pretty good. Music went downhill for sure after that, however, good music continues to be made.

Nazi Salute by Officers in West Virginia

https://www.cbsnews.com/video/photo-shows-class-of-corrections-officers-giving-apparent-nazi-salute/#x

Well, in Chicago I might understand LOL. But seriously, where’s the crime in West Virginia?

O.K., is this a joke? I’d say so (You know, cops = pigs, Nazis), and it even seems like one of them in the photo is Black.

Oh, Wait

Like Southwest Virginia, West Virginia might be where they are dumping criminals from the rest of the country. Also, there is the “Hail Byrd” thing.

https://dailycaller.com/2010/06/28/sen-robert-byrd-not-only-was-a-kkk-member-but-led-his-local-klan-chapter/

Byrd joined the Klan at the ripe young age of 24 — hardly a young’un by today’s standards, much less those of 1944, when Byrd refused to join the military because he might have to serve alongside “race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds,” according to a letter Byrd wrote to Sen. Theodore Bilbo at the height of World War II.

From the 11th paragraph of the LA Times’ Byrd obituary: “Byrd was not always a champion of liberal causes. He had come of age as a member of the Ku Klux Klan and cast a “no” vote on the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 that prohibited discrimination against African Americans and others. He later renounced his actions in both cases and called his membership in the KKK ‘the worst mistake of my life.’”

ABC News noted that “despite his successful political track record, the Senate’s senior Democrat was no stranger to controversy and was once a member of the Ku Klux Klan,” as if calling for the extermination of dark-skinned peoples (as well as Jews, Catholics, and gays) was no more stirring a gaffe than Gary Hart’s monkey business.

The Racial Demographics of Movies, Etc., Are Not Normal

It’s seems like that’s often the case nowadays. Anyway, that’s not saying, though, that there aren’t areas so mixed that it looks like Star Trek. Some of those places are airports.  Others are the Itaewon District in Seoul, South Korea, and parts of NYC. A more realistic ethnic makeup for movies would have one dominant ethnic group with a few characters outside that group. That would be way more believable and seem less like it’s pushing a social agenda.

Anyway

Some areas would have more of an outside ethnic group in the mix than others due to the need for a realistic portrayal of the area.  For instance, in Appalachia, you see quite a number of Blacks here and there at a supermarket, and in more Deep Southern areas, in a lot more places than that.

However, a lot of Asians is one thing you won’t see in the South generally, outside Atlanta and places like that.

New York City etc.

Those areas might really be as mixed as TV shows set in the area portray, but those shows still alienate people in much of the US, as their areas are not that mixed.

But Are the Parents Raising These Kids To Be Strong?

I hate that stuff like this happens, and perhaps the school should have taken a harsh measure. However, the state cannot nanny children.  In other words, parents need to teach kids to be stronger.  Now, I’m not saying this is what happened, but I suspect this is what happened.

Anyhow, middle school is hell for many kids, and this one didn’t even seem abnormal.

https://www.cbsnews.com/video/mother-sues-school-district-for-failing-to-notify-family-of-daughters-suicide-plan/

Mother sues school district after daughter’s …

Madison Ocheltree was just 12 when she took her own life. In a lawsuit, her mother alleges her daughter’s friend alerted a teacher, but the school failed to contact their family. Jamie Yuccas reports.

White People Are Far Too Altruistic for Their Own Good

Polar Bear: Whites, maybe even Nordics, are more accepting of racemixing. This fits with their lower rates of Identity Politics.

Yes, White IP tends to be a nasty beast. You don’t have to look back that far in history to see that. I can understand people’s visceral negative reaction to White IP. Face it, White IP movements can create some huge monsters, whole populations of basically “White orcs”.

Face it. We Whites are too nice. We’re too good. We are the most self-sacrificing race on Earth. Name another race that voluntarily cedes its power and advantages to others on a regular basis.

I’m waiting…

Truth is that we Whites are so good, so damned altruistic and other-oriented, that we are out and out committing what boils down to racial suicide. And most of us could care less.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s fine to be a saint. But there is such a thing as being too good. Taken too far, saintliness can be downright suicidal.

I’m not against a world that’s less White. But in my own society, I would prefer the non-Whites to be high quality people: higher IQ, educated (college or grad degree preferred), well-behaved. I don’t understand why that’s so evil, racist, and controversial. Non-White races and groups have a huge number of high quality people in them that I would be happy to share my society with.

The quality debate refers to whole races and groups, not individuals. The problem with a lot of non-White races and groups that while they have many high-quality people among them, they also have vast numbers of lower quality people who won’t be good for my country. That’s why you can’t just let them in willy-nilly like you could with Norwegians and Japanese. Sorry, some races and groups simply call for more scrutiny.

If non-Whites meet those criteria, who gives a damn that they’re not White? They are going to act like us for all intents and purposes. We Whites say that if you are well-behaved (and it helps to be intelligent too), you “act like we do.”

That’s why all the talk of Black culture being so different from White culture is just silly. As long as Blacks act good, we will say that they “act like we do.” Any differences in their culture will be waved off as unimportant because to us they are.

We Whites don’t particularly care what non-Whites do, believe it or not. We have better things to worry about, like getting laid, making rent and paying bills. Instead, all we care about is that you are well-behaved when you do whatever it is you do.

On the other hand, if you don’t select the non-Whites by quality, you might end up with Brazil – lower IQ, poorly educated, terribly misbehaved non-Whites that almost create a Dantean Hell on Earth.

White extinction is a long ways off. I recently went to a shindig in the Sierra Nevada, right here in California of all places, and I swear every single person there, of all ages, was White. Plenty of pretty redheads running about too. So in a way this is hue and cry over nothing. I will be gone in 25 years and I assure you that there will still be huge numbers of Whites in this world.

An Educated Public Is Bad for Israel

Some pro-Israel activists think that is only people were more educated about the Israel-Palestine issue, they would be more likely to support Israel. In fact, I doubt if that is true. Indeed I would say that the less someone knows about the conflict, the more likely they are to support Israel.

The more someone learns about it, the more likely they go anti-Israel. Jews would best benefit from keeping people as ignorant as possible about these issues. It’s like political science and economics.

I really hate to admit it, but once I started looking deeply into this issue for the first time in my early 40’s, I rather quickly become pro-Palestine and extremely anti-Israel. It took me a mere few months of very intensive research to do so.

I also realized that I had been pretty much taught a pack of lies about this issue. I was also quite angry at my country and especially my media because I felt that they had lied to me for the first 43 years of my life about this issue. I became rather jaded towards Jewish people because I realized that they had been instrumental in selling me this clever nonsense.

So you see, education about this issue is a two-edged sword. From the Israeli POV, I would say that the less a Gentile knows about this issue, the more they support Israel. I realized that the Jews and their supporters had to come up with this clever pack of lies in order to sell their necessary project, that is, to survive. We all have to survive.

I also realized that the Arabs have not exactly been on good behavior on this issue either. For all the talk of Zionazis, the Arab cause has been nothing but sheer terrorism of the most vicious type from Day One. They haven’t even tried to sugarcoat it. Look at this:

This list was appalling. I don’t particularly mind the attacks officials of the Israeli government. It’s a dirty guerrilla war after all. But look at how many of those attacks are simply against Jewish people, synagogues, restaurants, etc. They’re attacking Jews for being Jews!

Are the Jews in the Diaspora squatting in Palestine? Nope. So the Palestinian cause is to attack all of the Jewish people in the Diaspora? The Palestinians should be happy there is a Diaspora. From their POV, that’s where the Jews should be. I am sorry, but attacking Jews as Jews is an old game. Most recently, Mr. Hitler did that. Anti-Semitic political attacks are ugly stuff.

As far as my position, of course I am inclined to let the Palestinians run free in Israel and let nature take its course. The problem is that they probably won’t simply build humble abodes and make themselves at home. I am very worried that they will start a guerrilla war and start killing Jews. Look at the wars in the Arab World, and you might end up with that.

I don’t know the solution, but I am willing to let all the Jews stay where they are as long as they let the natives mingle. On the other hand, I don’t want to see a guerrilla war on Jews. In any just solution, the Jews of Israel need to be able to live in peace in their land without maniacs trying to murder them.

Whatever crimes the Jews of Israel have committed, the Palestinians have committed offenses of equal amorality or worse. And whatever their failings of the civilian Jews of Israel, I don’t think they deserve the death penalty. In particular, though I am not happy about Israeli Jews at all, it’s clear that they are all completely brainwashed.

I opposed killing Nazi civilians, for Chrissake. I can’t condone killing Israeli civilians. The last round of Jew-killing was particularly horrific, and I personally don’t have the stomach for much more large scale Jew-killing. I think a lot of the rest of the world feels the same way.

I don’t even oppose all Israeli parties. I could live with the Meretz Left and of course Hadash (Communist Party of Israel).

Why Conservatism Is Inherently Dishonest and Undemocratic

Wisdom and knowledge are not on the side of the rich. The economics and politics of the rich is a fool’s errand – great for the rich but disastrous for everyone else. This is why the rich buy up all the media and the state and use both to push 24-7 propaganda lies about how the economics of the rich is the best thing for your everyday person.

They have to lie about this all the time because it is so manifestly untrue. This is why conservatism, at least the political economic variety, is always undemocratic and completely dishonest.

If the rich were honest about this matter, they would say, “The political economy that we push is great for us but terrible for most of the rest of you. But you all should support because reasons.” Incredibly enough, many ordinary Americans more or less believe this, but they see their non-wealthy status as a failure for which they blame themselves, and they tell themselves their whole lives that they are going to be rich too one day.

America: Society as Casino

Americans are truly some of the stupidest people on Earth.

Examples:

  • 25% of Americans say that they are in the top 1% income bracket.
  • 50% of Americans say they will be millionaires some day.

Those figures are more pathetic than laughable, and the laugh they elicit is a cruel and downcast one that leaves you shaking your head at dangerous folly.

Looking at those figures above: this isn’t even a true society. It’s Society as Lottery or Casino. Call it Lottery World or Casino World – a political economy that is based on the notion that we are all deluded gamblers who insist that we will strike it rich at the casino called Society one day.

 

Six European Nations Join Worthless INSTEX’s Trade Mechanism with Iran, by Stephen Lendman

As you can see, the much-vaunted INSTEX is more or less useless, but it allows the EU nations to say that they are doing their best to engage in humanitarian trade with Iran.

Six European Nations Join Worthless INSTEX’s Trade Mechanism with Iran

The EU Instrument for Supporting Trade Exchanges (INSTEX) with Iran became operational in June — a smoke and mirrors scheme to bypass dollar transactions, unrelated to restoring normal European trade with Iran.

It’s an illusory financial transactions mechanism, pretending to reinstate normal trade with Iran — not fulfilled since announced in January.

What’s supposed to be an oil for goods mechanism is only for what the Trump regime hasn’t sanctioned, failing to cover exports of Iranian oil, gas, petrochemicals, and other products. It also falls woefully short of facilitating Iranian imports of food, medicines, and medical equipment.

Establishing it created the phony appearance of Brussels wanting normal trade relations with Iran. Reality is polar opposite.

European countries operate as US colonies, following its diktats, especially regarding relations with nations on its target list for regime change like Iran. JCPOA signatories Britain, France, Germany, and the EU failed to fulfill their mandated JCPOA obligations, going along with the Trump regime’s aim to kill the deal while pretending to want it saved.

On November 29, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden issued a joint statement, saying the following:

They

attach the utmost importance to the preservation and full implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear program by all parties involved (sic)…

adding:

The nuclear agreement was unanimously endorsed by the UN Security Council and is a key instrument for the global non-proliferation regime and a major contribution to stability in the region.

In light of the continuous European support for the agreement (sic) and the ongoing efforts to implement the economic part of it (sic), and to facilitate legitimate trade between Europe and Iran (sic), we are now in the process of becoming shareholders of the Instrument in Support of…INSTEX.

Fact: The above named countries, other European ones, and Canada breached the JCPOA by failing to abide by its provisions. Since the Trump regime illegally abandoned the agreement, breaching international and US constitutional law, European countries and Canada severed normal economic, financial, and trade relations with Iran.

Nations joining INSTEX changed nothing. They remain in breach of their international obligations by failing to observe JCPOA provisions. Unless and until they change policy, they remain complicit with Trump regime economic terrorism on Iran for its opposition to US aggression, support for Palestinian rights, and unwillingness to sell its soul to the imperial state at the right price.

Weeks earlier, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said the following:

For the past five months, Europe has been trying to give us credit in return for the sale of the Iranian crude oil to make the country stay in the JCPOA, but it has not been able to do even this little job because it is not even allowed by its master to spend its own money for its own security.

Its member states refuse to exercise their sovereign rights in dealings with Iran unless a higher power in Washington permits it.

On Saturday, Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission spokesman Hossein Naqavi Hosseini said European JCPOA signatories have been in breach of the deal since the Trump regime illegally abandoned it. Iran’s legitimate incremental pullback of its voluntary JCPOA commitments failed to encourage its European signatories “to fulfill (their) obligations.”

On Saturday, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Gholam Hossein Dehqani said:

inhumane (US) sanctions have negatively impacted the supply of medicines and treatment for more than 70,000 victims of chemical weapons in our country and have in fact hindered the treatment of chemical attacks victims.

In response to six more European nations joining INSTEX, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Seyyed Abbas Araqchi  said the following:

The more European countries join the INSTEX mechanism as the shareholders, the better, but the effectiveness of the mechanism is another matter

adding that he doubts Europe will take practical steps to restore normal trade relations with Tehran.

The JCPOA is in “intensive care,” he stressed, Europe failing to save it by following hostile US policies toward Iran. Tehran joined the JCPOA to restore normal economic, financial, and trade relations with Europe. Without normalization, the deal is meaningless.

“The Pentagon’s “Mother of All Bombs” (MOAB) Dropped on Afghanistan (2017): Devastating Health Impacts, Ruined Farmland,” by Abdulhaq Omeri

These armaments are ridiculous. War is supposed to be fair. Both sides are supposed to have a chance to escape from attacks. Drone armaments, conventional bombs, RPG’s, grenades, anti-aircraft missiles, anti-tank weapons, all manner of artillery and mortars, all small arms, and even IED’s, suicide vests, car bombs and suicide car bombs all have an element of fairness about them in that it is fairly easy for the enemy to escape from these weapons.

None of these weapons wipes out whole neighborhoods and cities. That’s ridiculous. The idea is that if you have an army that is superior in size and armaments, using conventional warfare tactics, typically involving invasion of enemy territory, you should usually prevail. But you are going to lose some men. So will the other side. Well, you wanted to fight a war, right?

You simply cannot have bombs that blow up whole cities and whole neighborhoods. Those are rightly called WMD’s. Napalm and white phosphorus, cluster bombs, dum dum bullets, and land mines (mine fields in particular) are all banned weapons of war.

This damned thing is a WMD. Ban it. And ban fuel-air explosives too. Those are absolutely WMD’s. And depleted uranium munitions should have been banned long ago

The Pentagon’s “Mother of All Bombs” (MOAB) Dropped on Afghanistan (2017): Devastating Health Impacts, Ruined Farmland

In April 2017 the US Air Force dropped its most powerful non-nuclear bomb onto a Daesh stronghold in Nangarhar.

Almost two and a half years after the United States dropped the “mother of all bombs” onto a Daesh hideout in eastern Afghanistan, locals say they have been afflicted by “many diseases” and agricultural lands are not yielding crops.

TOLOnews reporter Abdulhaq Omeri interviewed residents of Mohmand Dara village in the Achin district in the eastern province of Nangarhar. Omeri witnessed many children and teenagers suffering from skin problems and listened to many residents speak of the bomb’s lasting effects.

In April 2017, US Forces dropped a GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) on a Daesh stronghold of caves and tunnels in eastern Nangarhar province. The bomb, nicknamed the “mother of all bombs” is one of the most powerful conventional (non-nuclear) weapons in the US arsenal, according to the US Department of Defense.

MOAB is a concussive bomb, meaning it detonates above ground rather than penetrating hardened defenses. Anyone within 300 meters will be vaporized, experts say, while those in a one kilometer radius outside ground zero will be left deaf.

Nangarhar residents said the bomb has had a lasting effect on the area.

“The ‘mother of all bombs’ was dropped here,” said Pacha Shinwari, a local resident. “You can see that the stones can be broken easily, the plants are dry, the trees are dry, the nearby houses are all destroyed–40 or 50 of them.”

“The government evacuated the people (before the bomb was dropped), but when we came back, we saw that the houses were destroyed,” local resident Mohammadullah said.

Some teenagers are suffering from skin problems following the bomb explosion.

“Many diseases have emerged in this area after the bomb was used. Most of them have skin problems such as acne and skin irritations,” local resident Jam Roz said.

“The agricultural yields are not the same as in the past. The harvests are lesser,” said Aminullah, another resident.

Medical doctors and analysts interviewed by TOLOnews said the use of such bombs leaves an impact on areas where it is dropped.

“There are some concerns about the emergence of diseases after the use of the mother of all bombs in Achin, but so far the public health directorate has not recorded any disease that is related to the bomb,” said Zahir Adil, a spokesman for Nangarhar’s Directorate of Public Health.

“This bomb has three effects:

  1.  It impacts the eyes. People will feel irritation in their eyes.
  2. It impacts the inner organisms of the people who breathe the air where it has been used. It also impacts pregnant women and newborn babies… Afghanistan is a laboratory now.
  3. It has an impact on lungs,”

military affairs analyst Atiqullah Amarkhil said.

President Ashraf Ghani’s advisor and state minister for Human Rights and International Relations, Sima Samar, confirmed that the use of the MOAB in Nangarhar has had long-term effects on residents of Mohmand Dara village.

“It inevitably impacted the health of the Afghan people, especially in areas where explosives are used a lot, including the ‘mother of all bombs,’ which has left its mark on the lives of Afghans,” Samar said.

Identity Politics of Superior Groups Is Particularly Dangerous

White IP parallels the fall of angels, th 1/3 that fell from heaven felt superior to humans and were in a lot of ways. With their advanced technology, precision, etc. some Whites develop a sort of elven elitism. Elves, angels, and Whites can be more ruthless than orcs. Perhaps they are more capable..

Face facts, some races and ethnic groups are superior on at least certain metrics. That’s not even controversial science, yet anyone who states this fact may well have their life and career ruined by SJW psychos.

But look:

Germans and Japanese both score very high on IQ tests – superior to many other groups, and objectively speaking, both developed advanced societies in a variety of ways. Their societies were also superior to many others 70 years ago. The Germans were considered to be one of the more attractive White groups, albeit a subjective notion.

In short these two groups could be seen as superior on a number of metrics. So logically, it was easy for them to feel superior. Those who achieve superior results in society tend to feel superior to others.

The odd part was that Jews were superior on a number of metrics to Germans  (let’s face it) and there’s no good evidence that many Slavs, such as Poles, are inferior to Germans (Poles score higher in IQ tests than Germans).

However the superiority of the Germans caused them to see other groups, even other groups that were on the same level or even higher than they were, as inferior. A sense of superiority isn’t necessarily logical. The problem is that that sentiment exists at all.

In Central Africa, the Tutsis were taller, lighter skinned,  had fairer features, and were perhaps more intelligent than the Hutus, who looked more like typical Africans. So the Tutsis were superior in a number of ways. Look what happened. 1 million Hutus murdered in only three weeks.

Problem is that when hugely superior groups develop an IP, the results can be out and out genocidal. Their sense of superiority allows them to regard many of the groups around them as inferior, and mass murder can flow from that.

Whites do score superior to many other races on objective testing, particularly intelligence testing. One could argue that they have achieved superior results in technology, science, the arts, innovation, and civilization in general. So when objectively superior Whites develop an IP, it’s typically pretty ugly stuff.

Take-home point: Objectively superior groups developing IP is very dangerous. Their sense of superiority, already validated by facts, gets blown out of proportion. There’s a tendency to regard many other groups as inferior – and face it, on a lot of metrics, they are.

These validated senses of superiority of themselves and inferiority of others leads to disdain and contempt for those below them and to savage IP in which they can be quite cruel, vicious, murderous, and even genocidal.

The more objectively superior the group, the more brutal the IP. Not true all the time, but definitely true a lot of the time. Superior group’s IP is a dangerous thing. It’s no wonder that people get alarmed when certain groups develop IP.

Capital Punishment

Tennessee executed a blind man in the electric chair yesterday. It was the first blind man getting it nationwide since 1976, I think. However, was it cruel to execute a blind man (He’s white)? He burned his wife to death (in the 1990s) probably after he found out she was cheating.

Anyhow, I will say capital punishment in general is wrong because it’s just stooping to the barbarism of the person being executed. If murder is wrong then why is the state also doing it? By the same logic could teachers who cuss punish a student who cusses?

The War on Drugs

This is a an incredible waste of money, as drug use is coming from bad parenting. At the least, instead of fighting drugs, why doesn’t the government encourage family values and “non-racially biased” family building (especially since the White family drought is causing so much racial conflict)?

Anyway, I think the key to keeping kids off drugs is simply being a good role model and not letting them run wild at night. It’s just that simple. However, so many parents are terrible role models – not connecting with their kids or coming across as uncool. Also, parents are often very naive about who the kids hang out with.

Bolivia’s Russiagate Scandal. Alleged Moscow “Meddling” in Bolivia Election, by Andrew Korybko

Pretty much self-explanatory. More fake news about Russia helping Morales win the election designed to further cast doubt on Morales’ clear and obvious win. The US is up to their necks in this bullshit. This shows you exactly what sort of a sleazy country we are. If nations were humans, the US would be a ratfuck.

Bolivia’s Russiagate Scandal. Alleged Moscow “Meddling” in Bolivia Election

The fake news allegations that Russia “meddled” in Bolivia’s recent election in order to help (“former”) President Morales win and the more recent claims late last month that its soldiers are supposedly “waiting for his return” in order to presumably help restore him to power are nothing more than provocations designed to manufacture the “plausible pretext” for the coup “authorities” to renege on their country’s previously agreed-upon deals with Moscow unless the latter possibly concedes to renegotiating “better” (lopsided) terms, but even then, some of the most strategic projects might still be canceled under heavy US pressure.

Russia’s always being blamed for everything that goes wrong across the world, and the Hybrid War on Bolivia is no different.

Even before this asymmetrical warfare campaign succeeded in carrying out regime change against democratically elected and legitimate (now-“former”) President Morales, there were accusations that Moscow “meddled” in its recent election in order to help him win, which with the knowledge of hindsight in recognizing that the coup against him was planned well in advance, it seems obvious that such claims were being made in order to discredit his victory and therefore “legitimize” the Color Revolution against him.

Having served its purpose, a new infowar narrative about Russia is conveniently being cooked up, and it’s that its soldiers are supposedly waiting for Morales’ return in order to presumably help restore him to power, an audacious allegation that President Morales felt compelled to debunk on Twitter late last month.

This hysteria also contributed to preconditioning the “international community” to accept the removal of RT’s Spanish broadcasts from the air on the contextually implied basis that the outlet was “meddling” in its “domestic affairs”.

Framing Russia as the bogeyman in Bolivia accomplishes more than just inciting anti-Morales riots and distracting global attention from the US’ support for the coup since it can also be exploited as the “plausible pretext” to “justify” the coup “authorities’” possible decision to renege on their country’s previously agreed-upon deals with Moscow, especially seeing as how this latest American-backed regime change threatens some of its geostrategic interests in South America.

Most of the media never paid much attention to it, but Russia and Bolivia signed agreements in the nuclear energyhydrocarbonlithium, and military spheres over the years, with the last-mentioned being particularly important because President Morales said over the summer that he was interested in replacing the American military equipment that he inherited from his predecessors over a decade ago with modern Russian wares. Altogether, these agreements pose a challenge to the US’ historical hegemony.

It’s therefore unsurprising that the US-installed coup “authorities” might be considering “publicly plausible” options to renege on their previously agreed-upon deals with Russia without attracting too much flak for doing so and making it entirely obvious that this is being done at Washington’s behest, hence the reason for propagating fake news narratives about Russia’s allegedly secret political and military interventions in the country in parallel with expressing likely insincere interest in expanding energy projects with Moscow.

The scenario is progressively unfolding whereby the coup “authorities” might declare those deals null and void on the basis that Moscow is supposedly behaving “aggressively” towards them and in alleged “violation” of international law unless it concedes to renegotiating “better” (lopsided) terms, but even then, the future of its projects isn’t guaranteed since some of the most strategic ones might still get canceled under heavy US pressure.

There’s no evidence whatsoever that Russia is guilty of the meddling that’s being implied as the “legal” basis for advancing this scenario, which makes these scandalous claims a remix of the same ones that were made earlier in the year about alleged Russian activities in Venezuela.

Back then, it was falsely alleged by both the Mainstream and Alternative Media that Russia was setting up a base in the Caribbean country, the rumors of which were driven by the temporary presence of Russian servicemen who were there to train their Venezuelan counterparts per a preplanned mission to accompany the delivery of new military equipment.

There were also claims that Russians were physically involved in responding to the Color Revolution riots at the time, none of which ever happened.

This time, however, there aren’t even any Russian servicemen in Bolivia on training missions to lend even a little “credibility” to the claims of a secret military intervention there, though the very fact that such a scenario is being suggested proves that those who are propagating it believe that their intended audience will unquestionably believe them because they regard the narrative preconditioning over the past year to have been successful in facilitating this.

Nevertheless, it really doesn’t matter whether the average Bolivian or whoever else is being targeted by this fake news narrative of supposedly secret Russian political and military interventions in the heart of South America believes it or not since the coup “authorities’” US patrons mostly only want to craft the headlines that could used in the event that their proxies go through with the expectation that they’ll eventually renege on their country’s previously agreed-upon deals with Russia.

Anything being said about alleged Russian activities in Bolivia at this point should therefore be taken for granted as agenda-driven fake news. The only foreign force that’s meddling in Bolivia is the US, which wants to see Croatian-style ethnic cleansing and South African-like apartheid there, ergo why it’s ordered its surrogates to scream so loudly about Russia in order to distract global scrutiny from this unsavory fact.

“Hong Kong – Pure Western Insanity,” by Peter Koenig

I don’t really know what to say about this article. But I do not support these protests in Hong Kong at all. They’re all pro-US conservatives! The protestors also support US foreign policy to the hilt and they support all neoconservative regime change operations. Why on Earth should I support any pro-US movement anywhere? They’re mostly bad news.

Hong Kong negotiated a deal with China in 1997. Over a 50 year period, Hong Kong would slowly revert back to Chinese rule, and all Chinese laws would be enforced. That’s what is happening here. The rioters are trying to go back on the deal. The thing is, Hong Kong is part of China! That’s all there is to it. If they don’t like being a part of China, maybe they should take off.

This whole mess started when a man in China murdered his wife. He was arrested in Taiwan. However, Taiwan has no extradition treaty with China, so he was not extradited to China, though he was wanted there for murder. So all of these riots started to support a wife killer.

Also, Hong Kong is full of corrupt officials. It’s one of the most corrupt places on Earth. It’s also an international money laundering haven for rich people in the West. That is its main value to the US and UK – as a money laundering center.

The government has always been very rightwing and pro-business. Business gets to do whatever it wants. The corruption among government officials is extreme, as they are all from the very rich and are tied in with the business community. Whenever you have a government of businessmen, you always have the most extreme corruption. Capitalists and corruption go hand in hand.

China wants to prosecute a number of these officials for corruption because the Hong Kong courts and justice system are completely corrupt and is controlled by the same wealthy corrupt businessmen that run the economy and the government.

I’m not really understanding the rest of the rioters’ demands. However, they have been extremely violent since early on, and the police have been remarkably easy on them. I doubt if police would go that easy on rioters anywhere else in the world.

A good 40% of the population oppose the riots because of the violence and destruction. However, the demonstrators and rioters do have major support inside Hong Kong. I don’t know what to say about that.

Obviously these are secessionists. They want to secede and become a US colony. That’s not going to happen and China is right to be alarmed at this color revolution right next door. The CIA and all the rest of the US regime change color revolution organizations have been involved in this from Day One.

Hong Kong – Pure Western Insanity

The impunity with which the US aggresses Hong Kong is insane. Equally or more insane is Western media coverage of what is going on in Hong Kong. Not one word on how the incredible “pro-democracy” vote of the rather unimportant District Council Elections was achieved. Of the 18 District Councils, 71% went to “pro-democracy” candidates.

Such an extreme anti-Beijing vote could only be obtained by massive Western propaganda at the cost of millions of dollars, targeted with algorithms developed on the principles of the now (apparently) defunct Cambridge Analytica. And this with 70% of eligible voters going to the polls.

None of this practically non-realistic result was analyzed by the West and reported on. In reality, the vast majority of Hong Kongers is sick and tired of the western inspired violence, but are very much proud of being Chinese citizens.

They were told by the propagandists that voting for ‘democracy’ candidates was the way to bring peace. And Peace is what everyone wants. After all, integrated into China in 1997, they have enjoyed much more freedom than under British colonialism, where they were not even allowed to vote for their district councils.

The absurdity does not stop here. The US Congress has recently passed legislation that would allow the US monitoring ‘democracy’ and human rights in Hong Kong, the so called “Human Rights and Democracy Act”, with the caveat of imposing sanctions if Beijing would transgress on the US imposed rules. Can you imagine? Can anyone imagine this all-overarching arrogance?

The US Congress passing legislation to control another foreign territory? And the West goes along with it. It may happen soon in Europe too that the US dictates what sovereign nations are allowed to do and not to do.

It is already happening. The US prohibits Europe to do business with whom they want – i.e. Iran, if not, they are being punished. No comments. It’s just the new normal. In the case of Hong Kong, Beijing has protested, called the US Ambassador twice to discuss the matter – to no avail.

It gets even more ludicrous. Madame Michelle Bachelet, High Commissioner of the UN Human Rights Commission in Geneva, has published in the Saturday issue of the South China Morning Post an article seeking full and “independent and impartial judge-led investigation” into police conduct at protests as part of confidence-building measures.

The statement in itself already takes sides, as it does in no way address the foreign-inspired violence of protesters, who, for example, are using a university campus to build Molotov-type bombs and other incendiary devices.  The Chinese Government immediately rebuked the article accusing Ms. Bachelet of further inflaming ‘radical violence’.

In a statement issued on Sunday, Chen Yaou, spokesman for China’s permanent mission to the UN, launched a scathing attack on what he called an “erroneous article” by Michelle Bachelet. Chen emphasized that China “strongly opposed” Bachelet’s article, saying she had interfered in the internal affairs of China and would only encourage protesters to use more radical violence. Mr. Chen added that

the protesters were seeking to create chaos in the Hong Kong SAR (Special Administrative Region), paralyze the HK SAR government and seize the administrative power of the Hong Kong SAR with the aim of rendering the ‘one country, two systems’ principle defunct.

Cheng also said that his government stands fully behind Ms. Carrie Lam, Hong Kong’s Chief Executive.

Despite the overwhelming pro-democracy vote on 24 November 2019, protests continue. Thousands took to the streets on Saturday afternoon assembling before the United States Consulate in Central, to “express gratitude” for passing the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. They were waving US flags and chanting the Star-Spangled Banner and were asking for more support. They pledge not to let go until all their demands are met.

Essentially, they want total independence from Beijing and to become a US colony. They should look to Puerto Rico at what it means to be a US colony if they what Washington does to its colonies. Or closer to their own history. They should look at their UK colonial past, and remember their state of oppression, the almost zero rights they had then.

What does this all mean for Hong Kong? At the time of the UK handover to China in 1997, Hong Kong contributed about 18% to China’s GDP. Already before the protests began some 6 months ago, it had shrunk to a mere 3%. Within the last few months HK’s economic output has further declined, as key financial institutions want stability and therefore are leaving Hong Kong for safer venues, i.e. Singapore, and, indeed, even for Shanghai, which is rapidly becoming the financial hub of the east.

The real purpose of the 50-year special status of Hong Kong that the UK (and US) negotiated with Beijing was to keep this unregulated Eastern financial paradise alive for Western oligarchs’ often illicit and tax-evading financial transactions of which the Western – UK and US – bankers and financiers were the key beneficiaries and profiteers.

These US-inspired violent protests are meant to destabilize the Government of Beijing – which is, of course, a pipe dream – when in fact, they are slowly committing suicide. Washington and London are disabling Hong Kong of her West-serving money-laundering capacity.

And if it comes really down to the level of intolerant crime and violence against the majority of HK citizens by this foreign-inspired and -funded disruption of SAR, Beijing could in less than 24 hours put an end to it. So simple. The West could just gape but say nothing, because it is in Beijing’s full right to restore law and order in their territories.

Now, let’s look again at the US arrogance to pass legislation to control a foreign territory. Could anyone imagine the logical opposite? Suppose China passes legislation to ban any foreign interference in their territories with the threat of sanctions.

These could include outright import bans for certain US goods – for example, agricultural produce, or stopping crucial exports to the US (iPhones, computers, other US-outsourced manufactured-in-China goods), barring certain US citizens from entering China – or, God forbid, building a military base in Venezuela and/or Mexico – Mexico being the latest Latin American country being harassed by the US for its left-leaning government.

It is only by equals facing equals that maybe, just maybe, we can achieve harmonious and peaceful coexistence. This applies politically as much as it does economically – and in economics, China is the unspoken front-runner with a strong and stable currency backed by her economic output and gold, versus an entire not only US but Western economy based on fiat money.

Interracial Dating in My City

RL: That’s not the ideal situation at all, Jason. Even here in California in the midst of the diversity, Whites are generally paired up with Whites, Blacks with Blacks, Hispanics with Hispanics, and so on. Most people end up dating their own kind for whatever reason.

Jason: I’m saying people should be cool with it if it’s on the table, but normally it’s not, although it is way more than in the past.

Oh yeah! People are absolutely cool with interracial dating here! This is California, bro. Yes there are some Whites who disapprove of racemixing, but they are very much the minority, and they better be awful careful about who they talk to about this.

*****

The following two combos are relatively common, although you don’t even see these very often.

White man – Hispanic woman. You hear about them, but you don’t see them very often.

White woman – Black man. You don’t see these very often either. You see more of it in young White women around here, but the Black men they hook up with are the worst thugs of all, and the White girls don’t seem to marry them – they only date them. These White girls will probably marry a White man.

*****

As you can see, only Whites are dating outside their race with any frequency. I am not sure what that means. I will allow commenters to elaborate. Obviously we Whites are the most evil and diabolical racist scum of all since we are more likely to date outside our race than any other group, right? The extent of White racist evil never fails to amaze me.

****

The following combos are not common:

Hispanic woman – Black man. I have seen one case – divorced.

Black woman – Hispanic man. I know of only one case.

Black woman – White man. Only saw one case, a high school boy and girl, and both appeared to be either virgins or near-virgins. It sure was delightful to see these two 15 year old teenagers love wrestling and making out in public.

Asian M or F – Any other race F or M. No interracial dating at all. We simply hardly have any of these people around here. We have a tiny few Chinese and a very small Filipino population. There is also a tiny Vietnamese and Khmer population. They all date within their own races.

There was something just joyously beautiful about two sexual greenhorns breaking themselves in so innocently. And it really charmed me that this White boy fell for this Black girl and the other way around for that matter. You don’t see that very often.

****

As you can see, both Black and Hispanic women don’t hook up outside their race all that much.

A Separate African-American Culture Produced Awesome Things

It did, stuff like Motown, The Blues, Jazz, etc.. However, it could not last because multiculturalism or segregated multiculturalism doesn’t work. It’s sort of a fast moving thing – like a firecracker or something. It goes and then it burns out.

So the situation now is either African-Americans have to join with Whites totally or leave. Otherwise, we are heading toward a ethnic civil war I think. I mean, everyone is already geared up for it, prepped by CNN and Fox News. Who are we kidding here? It’s definitely no joke and especially I could sense this from Facebook posters.

The Danger of Mulattoes and How to Prevent the Problem in a Non-racist Way

Mulattoes (or Mexicans etc..) could overtake the USA like orcs or something, but honestly, it’s only the fault of Whites because they simply won’t breed. They’d have to have families of 5 or more in pure White families to make sure that threat didn’t happen.

It’s like marketing. How can anyone expect a business to grow and dominate with no capital?

Abe Lincoln was one in many who was distrustful of interracial marriage because he figured they would breed, dominate population-wise, and then try to boss around White people. It’s kind of like in the Bible where the these demonic beings had sex with humans to create “great men,” and these “great men” became bullies (now the known mythological gods like Zeus and Appolo) – ushering in Noah’s flood.

Mulattoes Are Not from Demonic Activity

Of course. It’s not the same. However, you could bring up what I was saying.

Why Won’t Modern Whites Breed?

It’s mostly because of the modern style of life. However, people need to get back to the primitive ways or whites could face being a “bossed around” minority chronically.

The Ideal State for Now in the US

A pure White majority with a substantial, non-threatening mulatto minority. Now the keyword here is that everyone in the US needs to be so comfortable with others –  that they can marry who they want – without it being a big deal.
