Men give love to get sex. Women give sex to get love. Author: The smartest woman I know (my own mother). It’s a bit trite, but there’s a lot of truth to it, no? We bash the older generation as primitives, but the more I talk to them, the more they seem to understand the realities of race and gender that so many of us in the “progressive and liberated” generations that followed have obfuscated with censorious PC confusion, denial and nonsense straight into well meaning falsehood. Each generation creates its own set of ideological revolutionaries. Some of this is sheer rebellion, but a lot of it is just the spirit of the dialectic. Time honored wisdom is tossed out as old wives’ tales, and the New Science rewrites all laws and calls it progress. By the time we reach middle age, we realize with chagrin that the old fuddy-duddies were right more often than wrong. And on the cusp of that painful admission, we finally understand the nature of wisdom, as old and basic as man himself. The American Indians revere their elders (elderly). All over the world and all down through time, cultures have taught us that wisdom lies with the eldest generation, the living stores of wisdom. Since when in our ultra-technological, fission-busting, speed of sound breaking, just in time, up to the minute, metrosexual neon world village did that oldest of human maxims cease to be true?

What exactly happened between 1918-1933 in Germany? To what extent were ordinary Jews involved or sympathetic to the European Jewish elite?
By 1932, Jews were After WW1, many Germans attacked German patriotism and nationalism as sort of a toxic element that had led the nation into the ruins of war. Many of those doing were Jewish intellectuals, comedians, show biz types, etc. They were basically correct, but your average German was not in a mood for careful self-reflection. It probably is not true that the German Jews “stabbed the nation in the back.” It is true that American Jews led a huge media propaganda campaign to get the US into the war, probably in return for getting the British to agree to give the Jews Palestine via the Balfour Amendment in 1917. So the US Jews really did drag the US into the war. However, many US Jews were German Jews and they actually supported Germany in WW1. In Germany, most German Jews were patriots during the war. During the 1920’s, the German economy collapsed, but at the same time, Berlin became very decadent, a sort of a playground for the rich and famous all over Europe. There was a lot of decadent and depraved behavior going on with regard to sex, drugs, boozing, etc. There was also a lot of homosexuality and bisexuality in the scene. There were all sorts of folks involved in what was basically just a decadent artsy scene, but a number of them were Jewish. This whole decadent scene got tagged as “Jewish.” Your average German was a cultural conservative and thought the Berlin scene was sick and depraved. Around 1920, German Communists attempted to seize power via a violent revolution. A number of people were killed in this endeavor, which led to a short lived Bavarian Socialist Republic. The Communists basically failed in their revolution, and history is not kind to losers. Many of the leaders of the German Communists were Jews, including Rosa Luxembourg. Your average middle class German was horrified by the specter of Communism and blamed the German Jews for it. But many German Jews were very rich and did not support Communism at all. There was a lot of class war going on the 1920’s. A trade union would try to shut down a factory via a strike. The leadership of the trade union would be Jewish. The factory owner himself, a Jew, would fight the trade union in an often bloody street fight to keep the factory open. Hitler looked at this and instead of seeing what was logically intra-Jewish class war instead saw a conspiracy in which the Jewish factory owner and the Jewish trade union leadership conspired in a fake battle in order to create chaos and tear the nation asunder. The German workers never supported the Nazis. They always supported the Socialists (Social Democrats) and Communists. Nazism was basically a middle class movement of the petit bourgeois, as most fascism tends to be. The German industrialists went along with Nazism simply as a way to crush the Left. They didn’t like the racism very much, but they thought Hitler was all talk, and it would never get out of hand. In short, they didn’t think he would do what he said. In this way, they were similar to the US rich, who go along with far right populist extremism on social and other issues in order to get the Right Populists votes on pro-rich economics. But these same US rich don’t think that the rightwing social issue crazies are going to implement their project. Your average rich American doesn’t give a damn about abortion or gay marriage or any of that stuff. In this way, the rich always play with fire when they attempt to manipulate rightwing populism to their advantage. The German Left split and would not work together. The German Communists called the Social Democrats “Social Fascists” and condemned them. The two often had street fights and would not unite against the Right. There was a lot of sheer fanaticism in Germany. Eric Hoffer, in his book The True Believer, wrote how many Germans would support the Communists one week and then the Nazis another. They would go back and forth between the two, even though they were supposedly at the opposite ends of the spectrum and hated each other. In this sense, the political spectrum may be seen as more circular than linear, and the Far Left and Far Right almost seem to meet at the bottom of a circle.
Can experts of Jewish history share some ideas on what actually happened in Germany and Europe from 1914-1945? I need further pointers. I did some detailed research on this topic. The outcome of my studies found a conclusion quite different from that found in any history book. Other extremely interesting topics would be: 1) Jewish role in Bolshevik Revolution and their roles in taking down USSR. (The Russian billionaire mobs are almost 10 2) Jewish bankers and their wealth. Rothschild is suspiciously absent from Forbes’ list of the rich. They are now being portrayed as a dead dynasty. But if you look at many deals, you could find shadows of Rothschild. I am a Christian. I do not hate Jews. But I have the feeling from what I have gathered that a true look history will inevitably stir up resentment towards the Jews. However, I think truth is more important, never mind it might cause anti-Semitism.
Jews did play a prominent role in the Bolshevik Revolution, and this was a source of much anti-Semitism among those who hated Communism and associated the Jews with it. However, the Bolsheviks also had mass support among the exploited Orthodox workers and peasants of the USSR. The Jews used to control much of the banking of the world, and this was the cause of much anti-Semitism. However, they never got control over US banking, thought they made a run on it from 1900-1920. There was a concerted conspiracy on the part of wealthy Jews to grab control of the US banks so the Jews could have the banks. US bankers were mostly anti-Semitic Christians in those days. US publications were also often ran by Christians who were not afraid to criticize the Jews. The conspiracy worked like this. The Jews would buy Christian banks. Once the Jews had a bank, they would sell it, but only to another Jew, never to a Christian. Bankers caught wind of this conspiracy and blew the whistle on the Jews, stopping them in their tracks. So they did not succeed at all in this effort. However, the whistle was blown much later in a similar Jewish conspiracy to control US investment banking. The result was that the Jews made inroads into US investment banking which they retain to this day. The Jews did not get control over US investment banking, but they ended up with a significant share. Around the same time, similar Jewish conspiracies were hatched to control both Hollywood and the US mass media. These were initialized by wealthy Jews were were getting nervous about racist US Hollywood and newspapers. In particular, Jews were very worried about such films as Birth of a Nation. Jews didn’t really care about Blacks that much, but they worried that this sort of White Christian racism (sort of nascent White nationalism) could end up being directed at the Jews. Numerous papers were in the hand of overtly White Christian racists. The Jews also were worried that this press racism could be directed at the Jews at some time. So runs were made on US papers and Hollywood. Hollywood was grabbed for the Jews, and they retain it to this day. The papers were also grabbed, and Jews continue to dominate the US papers. From their controlling position in the US papers, Jews then grabbed control over US broadcasting, which they controlled for many years. Jews continue to have a probable dominant position in US radio and particularly television. The fact that the Jewish runs on US banking and investment banking were halted (a similar run Jewish conspiracy to control Wall Street was also stopped dead) shows that a certain amount of protective anti-Semitism is necessary in order to retain majority control over a nation where a feverish Jewish minority works as a tribe to gain control over a nation’s institutions. It’s not right for a This also shows that a nation that completely loses its potential for protective anti-Semitism like in a sense like a body that has shut down it’s immune system. It can easily be invaded and conquered by foreign bacteria and viruses (Sorry for the inadvertent Nazi analogy!). White blood cells, both figuratively in nations and actually in corporeal bodies, are there for a reason. The Jews used to run the banks of Europe. Well, a thing call the Holocaust ended all of that. The Holocaust was a horrible thing, but it’s an ill wind that blows no good. Jewish domination of European banks wasn’t really good for European Jews or Gentiles in the long run, and in fact it was one of the spurs of the deadly Holocaust. If grabbing the banks of Europe ended up getting countless Jews killed, that power grab simply was not worth it for the Jewish people. Presently, Jews just don’t run the banks anymore anywhere, except in Israel. Banks are generally monochromatic corporate multinational institutions, as parasitic as ever but devoid of any particular dominant ethnic grouping. They are simply run by the It’s a class thing, not an ethnic thing anymore.

Kevin MacDonald is too obsessed with Jews for his own good. Jews just don’t deserve that kind of attention.
Ah the Hell with the Jews. The Jews are boring. Yawn. The only people who think Jews are all that are Jews themselves and anti-Semites. I really don’t think the Jews deserve all this importance. Simone Weil, the great French writer and Jew converted heroically to Christianity, described Judaism as like a stage where the stage is darkened except for a single spotlight that focuses on a main actor, who is moving about or giving a speech. All the audience is focused on that actor in the spotlight. Everything else is dark, the rest of the stage, even the audience. In Judaism, the actor in the spotlight is simply the Jews. The rest of the world is there, but it is in darkness, so in a sense it is as if fact the entire Gentile World simply does not even exist. All that exists is the Jews, their trials and tribulations, their books and whatnot. That is why some Medieval Jews even built their own ghettos, and a Medieval Jew would not even drink tea or break bread with a Gentile. This was done to create walls, figurative and real, between the Jews and the rest of the world. If you refuse to eat or have tea with 9 It’s often said that Jews hate non-Jews. There is some truth to this of course, but Weil’s analogy is better. More properly, to the religious Jew, the rest of us simply do not even exist at all! How can you hate a black hole, a cipher, a phantom, something that is not even there? In order to hate something, first of all it must exist. An object not even created into existence cannot exist long enough to be hated. Of course, if something does not exist, you can’t really care about it either, but that’s another matter. On a Usenet board, a wise fellow who was also, it is true, an anti-Semite, said that Jews saw non-Jews as like that pet lizard you have in your terrarium or like those deer out in your yard wandering around and grazing on your plants. Even if you are an animal lover, your lizard or your yard deer are just not on the same level as your fellow humans. They are something else, and yes, they are also something on a lower plane. There is truth to this too, but I still like the spotlight analogy better. The Jew sees himself and his kin as not just the center of the world but as the center of the universe. It’s a fallacy, but we give credence to this unpleasant fantasy by going on and on about the Jews and, as the anti-Semite does, placing them in a central position in our universe as some sort of focal point of omnipotent and omnipresent evil that must be combated. The philo-Semite in mirroring Jewish solipsism and narcissism and the anti-Semite in also imitating the Jew by placing him a central place (but in contrast to the Jew, as evil and not as good) both flatter the Jews and fuel-inject their obnoxious and silly chauvinism. Don’t fall for it.
Here. I am getting bashed in the comments by “cultural equivalence” White liberals and Leftists for bashing India. The implication is that I hate everything about it and everyone there. It’s not so. Just to look at this video. The physician, prominently featured, who quit to set up his own NGO’s to fight hunger in India, a fine man. So are the resolute, determined and passionate altruistic young Indian men, university educated, who went to the countryside to fight hunger. So are the filmmakers. So is the woman in the Sari who works for the Indian Development Ministry. I have much less passion for the female economist interviewed in the Western like food court. She’s clearly a neoliberal. “What we need is economic growth! That gets first priority! Not making sure humans have enough to eat so they don’t starve and die! That will all trickle down later!” This is her crap mindset, and it’s the mindset of all of the Indian educated “liberal” upper, upper middle and middle classes. “Sure, feed the poor! But don’t tax me or hinder my middle class lifestyle to do it!” What a shit attitude that is! I am not sure if the poorer masses are good people or not. I think most of them are, but a lot of them have a crap attitude too. In the video, they said that if you give grain straight to the masses, a lot of the poor and starving masses will simply sell the subsidized grain for profit and use the money for things other than food. It’s downright insane for poor and starving people to do that, but maybe that’s just the crap Indian mindset: Money, status stuff > food, health and life. That’s obviously the mindset of your typical middle to upper classes in the 3rd World toward their own poor, but it’s a pitiful culture where the poor adopt that bourgeois mindset directed as a weapon against them and turn that weapon suicidally on themselves. The state distributes subsidized grain to merchants at the local level. The interview with the lying criminal who ran the government grain store was instructive. He said he was open every day, all day long. They went back the next day and he was closed. A crowd of pitiful poor gathered (How could you not feel for them?) and said the man was a liar. Instead of being open every day all day long, instead he was open only one day a month, and he often made it hard to get grain. Apparently he was selling the subsidized grain on the open market for double or triple the price (he could easily get this since his own grain was marked down so badly). And much of the state grain sent to feed the poor simply spoils instead of being distributed. This sort of failure is typically seen in Communist regimes, where crops often spoiled before they went to market (particularly the case in the USSR). There is a lack of motivation for the local merchant to care about his grain crops. Apparently they were given to him for free, so he doesn’t care about them. Instead he collects a salary from the state, apparently for showing up every day, all day long. He collects that salary, but then only shows up one day a month ( One wonders if a more free market approach might work better. Almost no one is getting the grain this way. Perhaps the local merchants could buy the grain at the low price and then sell it at say a 2 The state distributes food to local schoolchildren as a free meal. But the children often refuse to eat the meal since it has bugs and worms in it. If they complain about the bugs and worms, the teacher yells at them, so they don’t complain. Instead they simply do not eat it. This is a program that is failing in a bad way. The food being served is contaminated with insects. Cuba also feeds its people every day, but the food they get is not full of bugs. It’s obvious that the state can feed people food that’s not contaminated with insects. The Indian state simply doesn’t care enough to get the bugs out of its food. One particularly glaring fact was that we are told that India produces enough food to feed its own people, yet it has the worst starvation figures on Earth (India’s figures are 15 Cuba has to import 6 Looking at the scenes at the Indian middle classes, one wonders just how callous they are. I have dealt with many middle class Indians, and I was stunned at their callousness. They are worse even than the middle classes and elites of Latin America, and I thought they were bad.
Here. Excellent. Though I must say, I am not in the same boat as most of those sites. Most of the real hate sites are coming out Pakistan and Kashmir. When it comes to bashing, India, Pakistanis should talk. Kashmiris have more of a beef with India, but most of that ranting is just hate. It’s not really constructive criticism.
…As they are not much better at any rate. Pakistanis are nothing but Indian Hindus with an overlay of Islam, so Pakistan is hardly any better than India. Pakistan is unbelievably filthy country, though not quite as filthy as India. 1/3 of Pakistanis shit outdoors, whereas 5 An un-Islamic feudal system continues in Pakistan’s countryside, the same as India’s feudal rural culture. Pakistanis even have non-Islamic (or even anti-Islamic) caste. Caste is abhorrent in any culture, but it’s particularly outrageous in an Islamic one. The Pakistani rich pay almost no taxes at all, similar to the Indian rich. As a consequence, as in India, the state is starved and nearly nonexistent except for an oppressive security apparatus. In the rural areas, the rich and upper castes abuse the lower castes with impunity, raping, beating, and stealing from them, on and on, all with the help of the local security forces which are allied with the upper classes. India’s education system is grotesquely underfunded. Many schools are just shells, never even partly used because the teachers collect their pay but then never show up for work. Pakistan is possibly worse. The state has no money because the rich pay no taxes, so there is no money to build schools. Because there are no schools for the masses, the mullahs set up madrassas where boys alone are ill-educated and come out knowing little more than how to recite the Koran. At worst, these madrassas are virtually Terrorist Academies that churn out fundamentalist crazies by the busload with each new graduating class. Pakistan’s electrical system is as bad as India’s if not worse with continuous blackouts, power failures, and load shedding. Pakistan is really just a Muslim version of Hindu India, minus everything good about Islam and plus everything bad about Hinduism. At its worst, it’s like Hindu India plus Fundamentalist Islam, which is possibly the worst combination on Earth. Pakistanis have nothing to crow about, as Pakistan’s as bad as India. Indian Pakistan-bashing doesn’t make a lot of sense since one is just a version of the other, however, Indian concerns about fundamentalist violence in Pakistan are well-placed, since there is much less sheer terrorist violence in India. It’s interesting that two nations so much alike would hate each other so much, but that’s often the way it goes with humans.
what are you worried about anyway? That the little bit of Australia that crashed into Asia will start exporting its people to the west (even more than it has done)? Or you just don’t like the Indians suffering with their ‘crap culture’?
I am outraged at India the same way I am outraged at Republicans. What bothers me even more is that I am certain that Indians don’t even want to change. And India really is a threat to the rest of the world. If you look at that China Smack post of all the filth in India, this is where the worst and deadliest, most crazy and insane new bacteria and viruses come from. That threatens not only India but much of the rest of the world too. I am told that there are already bugs coming out of India that are resistant to almost all antibiotics. Some of the worst superbugs on Earth are coming out of India. As long as these idiots refuse to get their shit together or especially as long as they don’t even think they need to get their shit together, I will keep on bashing them. And their problem is almost exclusively due to their culture, which they could change, well, yesterday. I don’t believe in bashing people on essentialist grounds on things that they cannot change. I honestly think that Africans are better than (superior to) Indians. Indians are worse than Africans! Now is that pitiful or what? Of all of the horrors of Africa, at least there is no caste system. Instead of caste, there is tribalism. Now the question is which culture is worse? In addition, there is a human element. If you look at India, what you see is a culture that promotes an unbelievable amount of suffering in its people. Look at those people wallowing in filth, diseased, starving, abused, cheated, beaten, raped, tortured, murdered, jailed and continuously stolen from by the rich, the judiciary, the security forces, and you see a people whose suffering looks like a well with no bottom. Now the lower classes may have adopted a slave mentality, but they still suffer nonetheless. There may be well more compound human suffering (assuming you can quality such a thing) in India than anyplace else on Earth. That cries out for the outrage of any humanist. And we on the Left always fight against injustice. And if anyplace on Earth symbolizes injustice and suffering, it is India.
Here. Good! Thank God! I am generally not happy to see people die, but I have so much hatred in me for these scum that I practically won’t be happy until we are knocking off about one hoaxer a day. I’m surprised one of them hasn’t been shot yet, and I fully expect one of these clowns to get shot sooner rather than later. When that happens, I definitely hope the hoaxer dies and the hunter gets off scot free. Sometimes deaths are the only thing that puts a stop to dangerous nonsense. This is both God and Darwin here, working in tandem. Oh, the glorious ways of the Universal Spirit! Moar dead hoaxers! Moar! Moar! Moar!
Excellent commenter Creaders writes about Singapore, begging to differ that Lee Kuan Yew is some sort of a Marxist.
Hi Robert, I am a Singaporean. I think the world needs to study this Lee Kuan Yew carefully. He is being championed by the capitalists not without good reasons. Singaporean workers are being exploited. Singapore is the only first world country without any forms of social security and government medical insurance. Our public housing system is not due to any charity from Lee Kuan Yew. The subsidy came from the political enemies of PAP government as well as subsistence farmers. The land was expropriated from those landlords. After PAP government took all our land, the sold to the highest bidder. The PAP government is extremely rent seeking. It jacks up property prices crazily such that our fertility rate is now about 1.1 kids per woman, the lowest in the whole world. Our property prices are one of the highest in the world now, just 2 Lee Kuan Yew’s greed knows no bounds. Despite of all these social ills, he has continued till this day to import foreigners massively, further pushing up our property prices and reducing our birthrate. Lee Kuan Yew succeeded in Singapore not because he is smart but more because Singaporeans, the majority of whom are Chinese, are able to take his abuse and turn bad things into good. Today, Lee Kuan Yew has run out of ideas. Singapore being the first to industrialize in the third world has seen all our industries hollow out due to high property prices. Lee now pursues the financialization of our economy. Singapore is now a money laundering and tax-evasion haven, that allows the rich all over the world to avoid paying taxes and hoard all their wealth in Singapore. Tax havens like Singapore, Luxembourg, Switzerland need to be destroyed. The western countries already achieved 10
This is an excellent analysis. My view as a socialist is that we should support pro-worker states. The states that do the greatest good for the greatest number of workers are the best states on Earth. By this argument, North Korea is failing badly because they are not creating a good society for the working people of North Korea. As a pro-workerist, I really don’t care whether a state is good for business. Who cares! Good for business tends to be in direct opposition to good for workers. The more a state is good for business, the less it is good for workers. Though many pro-worker states try to accommodate business, it is true that they do tend to limit them and hamper them in various ways, which I feel is proper. As a pro-workerist, why should I care which nations are best for the rich? If a nation is ruled only by the rich and exists and only to benefit the rich (as is true of many nations) why should working people support this? What’s in it for them? The ideal state is pro-worker, allows the rich to nevertheless keep a lot of their cash and puts reasonable limits on business in terms of regulation and taxation while nevertheless using the market as a tool to create wealth which can then be rationally distributed to society as a whole. There is nothing whatsoever good about a wealthy state that won’t even provide national health care or Social Security for its people. And as the commenter points out, the state housing was created in a very sleazy way, by stealing the land of the rivals of Lee’s party. In addition, the lands of subsistence farmers were also confiscated. I had a discussion about Singapore with a friend of mine. The Right likes to claim that the rightwing more or less neoliberal society of Singapore can be repeated elsewhere on a global scale as some sort of a model. My friend pointed out that Singapore is a very rich country that exists simply due to the very low wages paid to the workers from surrounding lands who commute into Singapore every day to work. It’s based on exploitation of the poor. How can the whole world become “rich” like Singapore? It’s not possible, and it cannot be duplicated. Presently the housing prices are so insanely high that most Singaporeans cannot even afford a home. This results in children living at home far into their 20’s and 30’s and not marrying and starting families. Because housing and the cost of living is so expensive, most of the young have decided that it makes no sense at all to have kids. Lee has created a rich people’s paradise in Singapore, a nearly feudal state where the workers are so priced out of the economy that they are refusing to breed and have no roofs over their heads. Lee has apparently adopted the traditional neoliberal model of continuous importation of cheap labor from abroad to be exploited by rich Singaporeans. Well, that is quite progressive. Now that the productive economy is hollowing out because property prices are so high that few businesses even want to pay the rent necessary to do business there, Singapore is turning to a financialized and parasitic economy like New York City’s. Singapore will become a giant casino and tax haven for the rich. Some model!
Here. Great website. Watch the world’s population climb inexorably upwards! You can set it to see the whole world’s population (a truly terrifying clock that increases seemingly about 3 human beings per second), or you can set it per nation. The nation clocks generally do not climb very fast, in fact, most of them climb so slowly that you can’t even watch them go up in the time a normal patient person would logically sit in front of the clock. The number of nations that grow by more than one human being per minute is not large at all. And it is true that a number of nations (including some that would really surprise you) are either hardly growing at all, are basically flat or are even losing population. Many nations in Europe, especially in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, are actually losing population. Nations in Western Europe tend to be gaining population but at a much slower rate, probably almost all due to immigration. Among the West European nations, Italy is losing population. It is claimed that Communism caused East Europe and the former USSR to lose population, but as far as I can tell, the population losses happened after the move to capitalism and not before. At any rate, if Communism causes negative population growth, I would say that that is one thing in its favor! In Latin America, Cuba is actually losing population. Rightwing liars claim that this is because so many young people leave the island, but that’s not true. It’s because it is developing the population structure typical of a 1st world country. First world countries tend to develop negative population growth after a bit. Cuba’s population is aging in a typical First World trend. This is due to great medical care and general high quality of life. Not that many young people leave Cuba in the first place, and when they do, they almost all go to the US. It is fascinating that Cubans only want to go to the US. For some reason, they shun the capitalist workers’ paradises of Latin America. Now why is that? Also, a huge number of the young of Mexico and even Central America leave their countries (also to come to the US just like the Cubans do), but their populations continue to grow. So obviously, Cubans aging population and negative population growth are not caused by the propaganda lie of “all the young people are leaving.” When your survival and whatnot is pretty much assured and women are educated, women get smart and don’t have many kids. Many 3rd World nations lack social security (even Communist China to their discredit), so people have lots of kids to take care of them in their old age. Others have lots of kids to have free labor to help on their small farm plots. Women are not educated in many 3rd world countries and birth control is not widely available. Many such nations are under oppressive macho patriarchy in which men feel that having more kids makes them more masculine. Check out the clocks of India and China if you really want to scare yourself.
Well, first you have to kill it. It was sickening to watch this gif. I turned away, winced and made a gagging sound as I watched. It takes a lot to make me puke, so it didn’t make me nauseous. This is one of the ways you kill a crab. First you freeze it in a freezer. Then you take it out and chop its head off. As it’s immobilized and unconscious from being frozen, it doesn’t feel anything. You can always drop it in boiling water. A lot of people say that this is cruel because lobsters and crabs scream when you throw them in. This is not true. First of all, these creatures do not have lungs, so they cannot scream. Second of all, the boiling water kills them so fast that they don’t have time to feel anything. Lobsters do not even have a real brain (how is that possible!?) and crabs can’t be far ahead of lobsters. So I doubt if it suffers much in any case. The “screaming” you hear is not screaming. First of all, the thing dies as soon as you throw it in the water. The “screaming” is simply the sound of fluid escaping from the creature as it is boiled. The fluid leaves the body rapidly, producing a squealing sound. There’s nothing to worry about. All the same, I think I would rather drop a crab into boiling water than saw its damned head off. Gross!
Richard Smothers writes:
I agree wholeheartedly. If someone makes 100 mil and you take 80, he’s still got 20. His cost of living is the same as everyone else’s, despite the fact he may enjoy a more expensive lifestyle, so a higher tax percentage for the wealthy than for the middle class and poor is supremely ethical.
They can afford it! Plus the rich don’t spend their money very well. They either sock it away or buy yachts and gold jewelry and other luxuries. Very little if any wealth actually trickles down. Even a lot of the investments of the rich are not very worthwhile. It is estimated that only 1 out of 133 dollars invested in the stock market is actually productive capital. The rest is simply speculative investment. Speculation is not real wealth creation. You only create real wealth through productive investments – making something. If you make something that people buy – say widgets – that is a productive investment. Even if you make yachts or gold jewelry, it’s productive investment because you make something that people buy. Speculative investment creates nothing whatsoever. Wealth is derived from the creation of products which consumers buy. Speculation is essentially a casino. Do casinos create any wealth for those who gamble in them? Are you kidding? Placing bets on this or that is just playing games with paper money and frankly creates no real wealth at all. And any parasitic wealth that is created by speculation falls almost 10 When the casino fails, as we saw in 2008 during the Great Crash caused by banking and securities fraud, a tremendous amount of productive wealth and real wealth in the hands of the lower and middle classes is destroyed. Billions or even trillions of dollars in lower and middle class wealth was destroyed when the rich placed the wrong bets in their Securities Casino. The Casino Crash wrecked the economy of the entire world, and the world is still feeling the effects of it. In addition, many middle and lower class people lost their homes, their jobs, and quite a few went broke or become homeless. In the rest of the world, many went hungry or even starved. In addition, all over the world, programs for the people funded with the people’s money (state welfare safety net programs) were destroyed. These programs fund education, health care, housing, disability, pensions, unemployment insurance and food for the people. They are paid for by the people themselves in taxation into insurance funds which can then be drawn by the people if and when they become needy enough. The rich hardly felt any pain from their losses. They are still rich. But the lower and middle classes were stuck with a huge bill for the bad bets of the rich in their casino. Since speculative capital creates no real wealth, is essentially parasitic, the wealth it creates goes exclusively to the rich and none trickles down, is extremely unstable and has tendencies towards horrific crashes that destroy incredible amounts of the people’s wealth, it makes sense to put some proper limits on the shenanigans of the shysters and the banksters, who are really the enemies of all of mankind.
Lee Kwan Yew of Singapore believes in targeted socialist programs which are implemented to help the very needy while still keeping taxes to a business friendly low. It’s a very carefully calibrated system which owes its uniqueness to the peculiar cultural and geographic variables that make up the Island state. I doubt many countries would be able to replicate this model. Dubai tried but failed due to cultural reasons.
I certainly don’t agree with keeping taxes to the very low level that business wants. Business doesn’t want to pay its fair share, and businessmen are rolling in cash. Businessmen will always invest their money no matter what the taxation level is, as long as it is reasonable. Corporations paid much more We only recently started dismantling the corporate tax structure, and now corporations contribute almost no taxes (5-1 However, when states and countries start competing with each other with lower tax levels, yes, businesses and the rich will tend to gravitate towards nations and states that have lower taxes to get a greater return on their investment. But within a solid-state economy, there won’t be much difference. As long as they can get a return, they do it. We had an incredible number of rich people in this land when the marginal tax rate was 9
So you do not want anyone on your socialist blog to hear about capitalism because they may change their mind and realize it works much better than socialism.
It depends on what you value whether you think that one works better than the other. There’s no empirical value in your statement, which is why economics is a social science, and a particularly dismal and non-empirical one that. Radical neoliberal free market capitalism doesn’t “work better” than socialism, at least not in my book anyway. I believe in survival. Radical capitalism doesn’t allow people to survive. I am against that. What it boils down to is that I will always support a system that allows people to survive (socialism) against a system that doesn’t (radical free market socialism). So to me security > wealth. You’re free to differ. Many varieties of socialism have been 10 My definition of socialism includes social democracy. We have basically centuries of evidence that radical free market capitalism is catastrophic to working people. We can go all the way back to the 1800’s and even further back to the fencing off of the Commons in England if you like. The debate is settled. It’s over. Radical free market capitalism is a disaster. If you ask me, it doesn’t work. I drive around my town and see countless homeless people wandering the streets every day in one of the richest countries on Earth. Now to me that is not a system that is “working better,” sorry. Don’t buy it.
Here is a short new guest piece by OdinCrow, a guest writer. He takes on, logically, the Libertarian obsession with free association, which can only logically be based on racism and nothing else. In fact, this free association nonsense is one of the principal reasons so many US White Nationalists have jumped on board the Libertarian train to ruin. There is scarcely a prominent White nationalist out there who is not some sort of a “Libertarian.” And Libertarianism of course is epidemic in the race realist/HBD community, the vast majority of whom are just thinly disguised racists. In addition, Libertarianism is rife throughout the Manosphere, but I am not sure what the reasons are for that. There is also a similar obsession with Ayn Rand. Apparently men are producers and females are the leeches if not useless eaters. A dominant theme in the Manosphere is, “Why should productive men via taxation support unproductive female leeches who hates us anyway?” I guess the answer to that question would be, “Because they are our grandmothers, mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and cousins?” Right? The US Libertarian concept of freedom of association is typically defined thus:
Freedom of association is a term popular in libertarian literature. It is used to describe the concept of absolute freedom to live in a community or be part of an organization whose values or culture are closely related to one’s preferences; or, on a more basic level, to associate with any individual one chooses. The libertarian concept of freedom of association is often rebuked from a moral/ethical context. Under laws in such a system, business owners could refuse service to anyone for whatever reason. Opponents argue that such practices are regressive and would lead to greater prejudice within society. Right-libertarians sympathetic to freedom of association, such as Richard Epstein, respond that in a case of refusing service (which thus is a case of the freedom of contract) unjustified discrimination incurs a cost and therefore a competitive disadvantage. Left-libertarians argue that such refusal would place those businesses at an economic disadvantage to those that provide services to all, making them less profitable and eventually leading them to close down. Libertarians also argue that freedom of association, in a political context, is merely the extension of the right to determine with whom to associate in one’s personal life. For example, somebody who valued good manners or etiquette may not relish associating with someone who was not decent or was uncouth. Or those opposed to homosexuality probably would not enjoy associating with gay people. In both instances, a person is voluntarily deciding with whom to associate, based on his/her own volition. Libertarians believe that freedom of association, in the political sphere, is not such a fanciful or unrealistic notion, since individual human beings already choose with whom they would like to associate based on a variety of reasons.
Since this right is not threatened with suppression nor has it ever been suppressed in the US (except maybe for Communists during the 40s and 50s), I strongly suspect that the true expression of US libertarians’ view of freedom of association today embodies its converse meaning, which is that a group or community of like-minded individuals have the right to exclude those they find undesirable from their communities. In short, they don’t want to be “forced” by the government to live around, go to school with, hire or work with niggers, wetbacks, faggots, kikes, immigrants, Amway salesmen, etc. Considering the largest demographic within their ranks (Whites), I don’t find that suspicion to be a irrational.
Possible hint to the journal where Dr. Melba Ketchum Bigfoot DNA study will be published. One of my sources is a young woman with deep links to the Ketchum study. I had the following conversation with her recently. RL: Do you know the name of the journal? Source: (excitedly) Yes! I do! (Laughs). RL: What!? What the?! Can you tell me the name of it? Source: (slyly) No, I can’t. I’m sorry. I can’t do that. RL: Hmmmm. Is it at Nature Magazine? Source: (insinuating) Well…you’re close…Let’s just put it this way…Hmmm. Let’s see now. Does Nature have other journals associated with it? Say a group of affiliated journals? RL: Yes, they do, as a matter of fact. There is a whole group associated with them, the Nature group… Source: (Hinting tone) Well, then, I would suggest that you might want to look there… RL: An affiliated Nature group journal? Source: Yes… Well, there you have it, folks. Put on your thinking caps and get cracking on the mystery. Ketchum paper may not be released via Newswise list of embargoed journals. Not many folks know this, but there is a secret group on Facebook that has been set up for the Ketchum DNA project. Ketchum and Sally Ramey, her publicist, pretty much hold down the fort there. The group has about 300 members and is impossible to infiltrate (I know because I tried). The only way to get in is by invite, and you have to have a long track record of interest in Bigfoot with a known identity. All email addresses are checked to try to ferret out imposters. They are unbelievably paranoid, and the group goes completely dark periodically for mysterious and unknown reasons. Numerous members of the group are now apparently “suspected leakers or spies” and have been shut out of news and updates. Bottom line is it’s basically impossible to infiltrate or get any spies in there. I won’t tell you the name of the group, but it’s something along the lines of The Sasquatch Protection Group. Don’t bother trying to join because you won’t get in. Yesterday, my August 21 post was the topic of much of the discussion in the group for much of the day. At some point, a person posted the Newswise list of embargoed journals and wondered if the Ketchum paper would be on that list. Sally Ramey basically flipped out and said she was going to try to prevent the journal from posting to that service in order to keep leakers and embargo breakers out. She also threatened any group members with serious consequences if they were caught with media passwords trying to break into embargoed journal article sites to break the embargo. Here is the direct quote from Sally:
Because of the interest level in this story, I fully expect the journal not to post it to this service. I will certainly recommend against it when we discuss it with the journal’s PR office. The LAST thing we need is the news to get out before things are in place.
So bottom line is those who are looking in the Newswise list for the embargoed piece may just be out of luck. Ramey’s statement is important for additional reasons. Skeptics have often stated that the Ketchum team has never stated that the paper is at any journal, much less that it has passed peer review or that it is in line to be published. However, with this latest statement we can clear some of that up. Is the paper at a journal? Sally Ramey (Ketchum project) says YES. Has the paper passed peer review? Sally Ramey implies YES (see above). Is the paper in line to published, possibly soon? Sally Ramey implies YES (see above). So that ought to clear things up for some of the skeptics. Elaboration for evidence that Ketchum team may believe that Dogman is a separate entity related to Bigfoot. Yesterday’s piece about the Ketchum team believing that Dogmen exist in the US and are a separate species from Bigfoots caused a lot of derision around the Net. One suggestion was that the Ketchum team had thrown this out there as nonsense to try to ferret out a spy in their ranks. However, that cannot be the case, as I will explain below. The following is a conversation I had with a young man who is deep with the Ketchum Project. Source: You know, Dogmen exist! RL: What the…??? Dogmen?! (Laughs) No way. Source: Yes! They do! Sally Ramey said so. Sally says they are like Bigfoots, but they are a separate species… RL: What!? OK, separate species or separate subspecies? Source: I’m not sure! One or the other. Species? Subspecies? RL: So it’s like the difference between a Kit Fox and a Swift Fox, then? Source: Yes! Dogmen are like Bigfoots, but they are somewhat different, a different entity. A different critter. RL: How do they know this? DNA? Is there genetic evidence for a separate genetic entity? Source: I don’t know! I know there is a team, associated with the Ketchum people, who are trying to gather Dogman DNA right now… RL: OK, well, Sally believes this. Maybe Sally believes lots of things. But does Ketchum believe this too, that Dogmen are real, a separate creature related to but separate from a Bigfoot? Source: She must! She has to! If Sally said, it had to come from Melba! It couldn’t come from anyone else! RL: Wow…What the heck is a Dogman, anyway? Isn’t it more ape-like? Source:Well, not really…it has a different nose…a sort of a snout for a nose. And it has longer hair, sort of a mane… RL: You mean like the Beast of Seven Chutes? Is that a Dogman? Source: Yes! Exactly! That’s one. That’s exactly what they look like… OK folks, so there you have it. I have taken a lot of hits for writing this Dogman stuff, but I want to tell you that I have never believed there was anything other than a Bigfoot of one species or subspecies in North America. I thought the existence of other entities was ridiculous if not insane. I still think the existence of a Dogman is ridiculous, and I hardly believe it because it’s so incredible. On the other hand, anything is possible in this wild world. If Bigfoots exist at all (which in and of itself is completely insane if you ask me) then, what the heck? Why not different types, subspecies or species or whatever, scattered about our benighted land? Dogman information will not be included in Ketchum paper. Some false ideas are floating around that I am saying that the Ketchum paper will include discussion of the Dogman phenomenon. This is not the case. While the available evidence suggests that for some reason Ketchum believes in the existence of Dogmen as a separate but related entity to Bigfoots, there will be nothing about Dogmen in the coming paper. Ketchum will write about Dogmen, if at all, possibly in an upcoming paper. More than one Bigfoot type may exist in the US and the world. There have long been theories that there is more than one Bigfoot type in North America. Some hold that there are up to 20 different distinct types here, either subspecies or species. That sounds insane to me, but who knows? It does appear that the Himalayan Yeti may exist as a separate but related entity to Bigfoots. There are stories that lack good evidence of other types from the Altai, the Caucasus, Pakistan, Southeast Asia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, the Pamirs, Siberia, Russia, Poland and the Basque Country. There is weak evidence for their existence in Central and South America and in Africa. Of all of these, the Orang Pendek in Sumatra does seem to exist, but it may be on the verge of extinction. It seems to be completely different from a Bigfoot type, instead related possibly to Homo Floresiensis that went extinct on Flores Island not long ago. One good theory is that Dogmen, Skunk Apes, Goatmen, Grassmen and whatnot are all either misidentified Bigfoots or are some genetic geographical variations of Bigfoots as in separate species or subspecies. This has the advantage over other theories of at least passing the plausibility test and avoiding the falling down laughing barrier. Ray Crowe on Dogmen. The great Ray Crowe is not dead as I had feared. Instead he is still with us, quite alive and kicking and working like crazy! My heart goes out to him, and I hope he sticks around this planet as long as possible. He’s truly one of the greats. Ray stopped by my site and wrote about Dogmen. Here is his extensive remark:
A recent Lindsay release addresses the issue of a dog-faced creature and some speculation concerning possible DNA differentiation from the typical Bigfoot “species” a la Dr. Melba Ketchum. Readers might be interested in some speculation along those lines by Ray Crowe, to be released in the upcoming Volume 2 of Bigfoot Behavior to be released possibly this fall.
Bord lists in the Bigfoot Casebook where in 1972 a witness saw a Bigfoot with a wolf-like head. The head had an elongated nose and fangs. Three teenaged boys were driving near a wildlife area and saw what they thought was a dead dog alongside of the road. It was torn open at the stomach with the intestines exposed. The boys stopped to examine; poking a stick at the carcass. Immediately a huge “Werewolf” looking creature screamed at them and charged towards them (not the dog). The boys piled into the car and raced off to avoid the creature. But it chased after them running up to 35 mph before they outdistanced it. One boy said that the upright hairy creature had ears visible on the side of its head. He said that the face was like that of an ape. But it had strange ears, “like large lynx-type in appearance.” Near Grand Rivers, Kentucky, July 1978, 13 year old “Joe” on his dirt bike screamed as the creature grabbed his leg, leaving scratch marks across his right thigh where it had torn through the denim of his Levi’s. The hairy wolf thing was following him on the path through the woods and grabbed him near the road. It ran on two legs and was taller than a man. “Linda” said the Farmington creature was the size of a large deer but had a massive wolf-like head and pointy ears. It lumbered on across the road into the woods, uncaring of her car’s presence. In November 2006 near Holly Town, “Steve,” a Department of Natural Resources employee, hired to pick up road-kill in Wisconsin, had just picked up an 80 pound doe deer carcass and put it in the back of his truck. The truck shook violently, and he looked back in his rear-view mirror and saw a creature lift the deer and a steel ramp that the carcass was tangled in and run off into the heavily wooded area carrying the deer in its arms. The creature had a distinct muzzle and prominent ears, the head of a wolf. It was said that other sightings of some sort of creature resembling an ape with the head of a wolf had been seen in the past. Outside of Elkhorn, Wisconsin, a creature was reported in the 1980’s called the Beast of Bray Road. Reporter Linda Godfrey of the Walworth County Week interviewed the witnesses who talked of a Werewolf. The creature was said to be seven feet tall, weighed 400-700 pounds and had a face like a German Shepherd with pointed ears. The creature had been seen running on all four legs and sitting in the road eating dead road kill. In vehicle headlights, the eyes glow yellow and the odor of decaying meat is noticed. Not to be left out, Michigan had a popular song, The Legend of the Michigan Dogman, in 1987. The Dogman was first reported in 1887 in Wexford County, when two lumberjacks said they had seen a creature with a man’s body and a dog’s head. Later, in Paris, Michigan in 1938, “Robert” was said to have been attacked by five wild dogs, one of which walked upright. Joedy Cook said in 1996, the Norwood, Ohio, police followed up on a report of a creature described as “a dog running on two legs.” Ronnie Roseman said he interviewed a Lummi Reservation cop who said that 15-20 years ago as the police cruiser was driving along the road and out of the woods, a creature with a snout like a wolf dashed out and deliberately slammed into the car and dented it after bouncing off, then dashed back into the woods. The big hairy creature was really quick, he said. There was a violent occurrence in Kentucky involving something called The Beast of LBL (Land Between the Lakes). The tale was related by Jan Thompson in the book Jan’s Tales, in a chapter called Creature of LBL. The spooky area had a long history of hauntings, Indian curses, and mysterious lights over gravestones, hag witches, and tales of a wolf-like upright creature that would attack livestock. The seven foot Wolfman left barefoot paw-type tracks, and had long hair and a stench of open graves. The huge wolf head had a long snout, sharp incisors and red eyes with huge hands and long spindly-type fingers. At night there were strange howls of painful agony. Families told of livestock slaughtered, ripped into pieces. Cattle and horses had their legs pulled from the sockets. A farmer found the creature in one of his horse stalls once; he “wet his overalls.” Thompson goes on to say where two police officers fresh from a crime scene were shaken and pale, one vomiting. They had gotten a call to help with investigating a crime scene at the popular LBL campground where some early season arrivals had been attacked by something. There were county coroners and ambulances besides other official cars on site. The victims were all dead at the ghastly scene, yellow ribbons of “CRIME SCENE” tape everywhere. The campfire was almost out, and the doors of the motor home were torn loose. Inside were bloody handprints sliding down the metal walls. Outside there was ripped clothing, bodies and body parts with limbs torn off, a pile of bowels and pieces of loose flesh and muscle tissues scattered everywhere. All of which belonged to three bodies. The remains of what had been hours earlier…a happy vacationing family. The father, mother and young son, the coroner said, were pierced by claws and incisors. The father had on his corpse four long claw marks, with a smaller digit like a thumb, that was wider than a man’s hand. The marks looked like the man was trying to flee. An officer stepped out of the motor home holding a garment; a small dress like a five year old would wear, but no small child was found. Fifty yards away in the woods, an officer had blood on his face, hat, and shirt. It had been dripping from a small hand seen in the tree, along with a leg with a white sock still on the foot that was dangling down. The missing child had been found. She had apparently been taken into the tree and leisurely eaten on as she lay across a large tree branch. The LBL is a popular campground bringing a lot of extra money into the area; so, of course, like in the movie Jaws, they tried to keep it quiet so as not to scare any tourists away.
So, what are these wolf-like creatures? There are enough reports that it would appear to be part of the animal menagerie of our forests. The most I can do is make a really wild guess; tongue-in-cheek. It’ll have to do for me until something better comes along. Could it be a possible hybrid between a Bigfoot and a baboon? Not necessarily today, but in the geological past (baboon fossils go back eight million years)? All baboons live in troops of up to 150; have long dog-like muzzles, powerful jaws with long heavy canine teeth, close-set eyes, and thick fur except around the muzzle. They also have short tails and bare butts. The males are considerably larger than the female, up to 90 pounds. The Hamadryads Baboon has a large white mane. The female initiates mating by presenting her rump to the male and gives birth to a single infant after six months. The baboons have 9 Many today argue that they should be classified with the apes. There are five species, and they are generally considered to be Old World monkeys. There is debate over the evolution processes of the baboon; the fact that they are so closely related to humans often scares people. However in 1977, researcher Michael Bedford discovered that human sperm could not penetrate the eggs of non-hominid primates like the baboon. The chimpanzee group split from a common ancestor around six to eight million years ago. It is commonly believed that following the split, the two distinct lineages had sex with viable hybrids for 1.2 million years, when another split occurred. I assume the same was true between baboons and the common ancestral stock that gave rise to both Bigfoot and humanity. Could wolf-like Bigfeet have been hanging around since then? Like in Medieval Europe? And would a Bigfoot be involved with bestiality? Mary Green writes of a possible cow that was molested! The poor cow had its privates treated very roughly, torn up pretty bad. The farmer had no idea what could have caused the massive physical damage; it was something that could have been caused by being bred by a bull. As an aside, the Russian Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov experimented unsuccessfully with creating human/chimp crosses called Chumans or Manpanzees by artificial insemination. The chimps share with us 9 And again, Birute Goldakas writes: “Chimpanzees are blood relatives who share almost 99 percent of our genetic material. Once blood groups are matched, humans could receive a transfusion from a chimp but not a gorilla or an orangutan. Some scientists believe that assigning humans and chimpanzees to different families is artificial. UCLA physiologist Jared Diamond argues that humans are the third chimpanzee species.” So, perhaps the reader can speculate and come up with a better explanation for the dog-headed creatures? While in the Wayne National Forest in Adams County, Ohio, Joedy Cook found the skull of a baboon. Joedy was hiking on a ridge called Buzzard’s Roost at the time. He speculated that it might have been somebody’s exotic pet that escaped and died or that it was from a nearby Primate Research Center. As the skull was damaged, he assumed a predator of some kind had brought it there. Originally he thought it was of a dog or coyote, but an expert that he took it to identified it as a baboon. Division of Wildlife said exotic pets, including primates, are legal in Ohio, so there is a brisk trade in exotic creatures of all kinds.
Beast of Seven Chutes before and after and long distance photos. From the site Have You Seen This Creature? the official Beast of Seven Chutes site. The following is the original photo in a series that were shot by the man on that day. He took many photos and four videos that day. Later he was looking back over them was shocked to find the creature in Photo 32. This photo will point out for you exactly where the creature is in the photo. On a return trip about a month later, the man and his girlfriend went down to where the Dogman was and took some comparison photos. This photo shows the man standing in the location where the Dogman was. Other photos show the girlfriend. No photo exists that shows simply the site with no Dogman or humans in it. Some growth occurred in the month interim period, so the scene is not exactly the same, but it is similar. Obviously the Dogman is not some existing feature like a rock pile or tree stump. It is either a real creature, the best mask ever made by mankind, or a good Photoshop job. The area where the Dogman was is very steep and overgrown and hardly anyone goes down there. It’s also extremely tangled and full of poison oak. There is also reportedly a fence around the area, but that can obviously be traversed, as the man and his girlfriend were able to make it down there. It has a small animal in its arms, which is either a white poodle (probable) or a rabbit. The creature may be dead, and the Dogman may be feeding on it. Some think that the Dogman has a blood spot on its forehead, possibly from feeding on the white animal. The area around the falls is rural, but it is not uninhabited by any stretch, so the Dogman could easily have killed a small poodle in the area. Another theory is that the white animal is a baby Dogman, but that seems unlikely. There are many claims that the photo has been debunked, but that does not appear to be the case. The photo remains a very bizarre mystery to this day, seven years after the 2005 shooting.
Shocking news! “Dogman” is apparently real! Dr. Melba Ketchum team says Dogman is a separate entity from Bigfoot, apparently another species or subspecies. This is incredible news. A source inside the Ketchum camp have informed me that the Ketchum camp believes that Dogman is a separate entity from Bigfoot, either another species or subspecies. How they came to this conclusion, I have no idea.
Dogman looks somewhat different from Bigfoot and has longer hair and more of a snout-like nose as opposed to Patty’s more human nose. Some say that they are shorter, only about six feet tall.
Dogman apparently resides in the Central, Midwestern and Eastern US from the Southwest on up to Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Quebec and over to the Appalachians in Tennessee. In other words, the Bigfoots like Patty of the Northwest are one species or subspecies, and the ones in the Midwest like Dogman are another altogether.
I asked the source whether Ketchum herself believe that the Dogman was real (I know that members of her team do) and he said, “She must. If [name removed] said it, then it has to come from Melba.”
The question is how the Ketchum team determined that Dogman is actually a separate entity, a separate species or subspecies. The source did not know, but the obvious guess would be via DNA. On the other hand, he told me that there is a team working on gathering Dogman DNA for analysis.
The source also affirmed that the “Beast of Seven Chutes” is a good example of a Dogman. He also stated that information about the Dogman will not be in the upcoming Ketchum paper but may be in a later paper.
Scott Carpenter says that Dogmen are real in his research area in Tennessee. People blast him a lot for his unconvincing videos, but he does have a successful hair sample in with Ketchum’s study that tested presumptive for Bigfoot. Carpenter’s blog entry about Dogmen in Tennessee is here.
An example of how hoaxers are using the latest Bigfoot movies and photos to improve their hoaxes. Look at the photo below. It’s from a video by a special effects group that was released as a “real Bigfoot video.” It was so good that many were fooled. The huge back effect may have been created by stuffing some sort of bedding or pillowing in the back of the suit.
Now take a look at the Hovey photo.
To me it is clear that the makers of the Pacific Northwest hoax above based their hoax on a careful study of the Hovey photo which they attempted to recreate with their suit. This is what I meant in my previous post about hoaxers getting better. When you have special effects folks competing to see who can make the best Bigfoot hoax, things are getting serious. It must be some sort of a game with these guys.
Back story for Ontario GoPro and Temagami Bigfoot video and photos is terrible. According to a source, the people behind the GoPro video, someone named “Nikk” has told lie after lie upon being investigated and has proved himself to be one slippery fish.
Alarmingly, it was Nikk to told investigators about the Temagami photos. The elderly couple are named the Heiberts and they supposedly reside in Timmons, Ontario. However, extensive searches by investigators have failed to find anyone named Jeanne Heiberts in Timmons, Ontario or anywhere else for that matter. Investigators feel that the “Heiberts” probably do not even exist.
Other things about the story do not add up. There was snow on the ground at the time the Temagami photos were said to have been taken, but there is no snow in the photos. There is the bit about the helicopters circling the lake, apparently lifted from the narrative of the Ben Matine hoax. Although the photos have been Photoshopped, the creature has apparently not been shopped in. That means that it’s either a real Bigfoot or it’s a hoax.
Tim Ervick investigated the story but did not meet the couple in person. Instead, there was 6 weeks of extensive emailing back and forth. Investigators are worried that Ervick may have been taken for a ride on both the Temagami and GoPro photos and video.
So we are left with at best a case like the Harley Hoffman video of what looks like a real Bigfoot video but the back story is insane, or at worst an elaborate hoax. Very disappointing.
Dr. Melba Ketchum Report may publish in the next two weeks! A source close to the Ketchum Project recently told me that he thought my guess of an August 21-September 4 release date for the Ketchum Project was probably correct. The source thought the report would be coming out in the next 2-3 weeks, probably in the next 2 weeks as I originally suggested. He told me that the Ketchum team had been working frenetically for many weeks now (doing what he did not say) but around August 19 suddenly everything went completely quiet. Not a peep anywhere. The source has no inside knowledge of when the paper is coming out. What he conveyed to me was only his guess. Commenter suggests that Ketchum paper may be delayed as long as nine months. An anonymous commenter on the Bigfoot Evidence blog stated that the Ketchum team had sent someone to the warehouse at UCLA where the bones were stored to hunt down the Minarets skull. The skull was found, and somehow the Ketchum team reportedly is now in possession of the Minarets skull! They are also in possession of several other unusual bones, including a ulnar bone from British Colombia that appears human except that it is about twice as large as a human ulnar bone. The anonymous commenter also said they felt that the paper would be delayed by up to nine months due to the latest requests for changes. As I have no way of knowing whether or not this commenter is accurate, I have nothing to say about these comments. I doubt if the 9-month delay for the Ketchum Report is true. However, the news about the Ketchum team having possession of the Minarets Skull, if true, is exciting indeed. Minarets skull footage and other bones footage may be included in Adrian Erickson Bigfoot film. The anonymous commenter above reported that the Erickson film underwent a lot of editing in order to include a lot of the data about the Minarets skull and the other bones that were found. But as we don’t know how reliable his reports are, at the moment, this is at best a rumor. Erickson video will be released at the same time as the Ketchum Report. Assuming that the Ketchum Report comes out in the next two weeks, the Erickson film should be released at about the same time. Erickson and Ketchum Projects now getting along swimmingly. I reported earlier on a lot of bad feelings between the Ketchum and Erickson Projects and between Ketchum and Erickson themselves as individuals. However, all of that is apparently patched up now, and both the Ketchum and Erickson teams have put all of their differences, including legal squabbles, behind them and they are now 10 Ontario go-cam video may be a Bigfoot. I discussed earlier a video taken by a man who put a go-cam on the rear bumper of his truck when he went camping in Algonquin Park in Ontario, Canada. Upon looking at the 1 1/2 hour video, he noticed a few seconds of footage and what appeared to be a Bigfoot by the side of the road. Others including Crypto Crew think it’s a man, possibly a hunter waiting for his ride. However, there are certain things about this footage that make me think it’s a Bigfoot. My museum source told me she’s never seen a human with a trapezius musculature as big as the figure in the video. In addition, the figure has a coned head. What hunter has a coned head? There is something else that makes me think it’s a Bigfoot and not a hunter, but I won’t reveal that because I don’t want to give hoaxers any info to make their hoaxes better. Suffice to say that humans don’t have this feature, and I’ve yet to see a Bigfoot hoax that includes this all-important feature, which I myself only became aware of recently. Exciting new Bigfoot photos out of Ontario, Canada. These three photos were reportedly taken at Temagami Lake in the wilds of Ontario a few years back by an elderly couple who rented a cabin in the area. The man opened up his door in the afternoon and saw the Bigfoot standing outside his door, frozen. After deleting a few files in his overloaded camera, he took the three shots below. Tim Ervick is great researcher with fine investigative skills. He spent a lot of time researching this case and interviewed the couple at length. The figure in the photo is real in the sense that it has not been Photoshopped in. That means it’s either a costume or a real Bigfoot. There are certain things about these photos that lead me to believe that this is a real Bigfoot and not a costume. First of all, I have a hard time believing that an elderly couple would be in on an elaborate hoax. Second of all, there are certain things about this Bigfoot that I have never seen a single hoaxer get right. I am not going to discuss what those things are because I do not want to give these hoaxer scum any more ammo to make their hoaxes even better than they are already making them. See the next entry for more on that. Hoaxers are making their hoaxes better and better, and we are helping them by telling them how we tell real videos from hoaxes. In case you have not noticed, hoaxers are now competing with each other to see who can make the best Bigfoot costumes. The best of these hoaxes are associated with little known filmmakers and special effects guys. These cinematographers and special effects geeks are competing with each other to see who can make the best Bigfoot hoax costume. They always release their videos as “Real Bigfoot footage,” and then the community has to waste a bunch of time taking apart these idiots work to figure out it’s a hoax. Any Bigfoot video that is released by a filmmaker or a special effects guy is automatically a hoax, guaranteed. I recently saw a very well done hoax in which it was glaringly obvious that the costume was modeled on the Hovey Bigfoot photo. It was clear that the special effects guy had spent a great deal of time studying the Hovey photo and had specifically modeled his very good costume on that. This is what I mean. With each new valid photo and video released, the best hoaxers will hone their skills even finer than ever. And this is a problem with the Crypto Crew and Facebook Find Bigfoot approach of checking out what a real Bigfoot looks like as opposed to a hoax. Every time we do this, the best hoaxers will sit down with their notebooks and check off how we tell a real Bigfoot from a hoaxed one and then proceed to make their next hoax that much better. It’s really nightmarish.
Please discuss here. Carry over from the comments in this thread.
Car Guy asks:
Would it be fair to compare the US education system with that of countries such as Japan, South Korea and Germany?
No! People are always comparing US test scores with those of all Asian countries in East Asia and nearly all White countries in Europe. When the US falls behind say Finland, Taiwan or Singapore, rightwingers screech that the US public school system is failing and therefore we need to dismantle it in various ways such as charter schools, vouchers, defunding, etc. These comparisons are all false due to differential IQ’s between ethnic groups in the US and those of other nations. Japan and South Korea = pure East Asian. Higher IQ (105) than white majority US (98). Germany = all White. German IQ is ~103; US IQ is 98. The US is only 6
IQ US Ethnic group Whites 103 Hispanics 90 Blacks 87.2*
*Black estimate is my estimate. Others would put it lower at around 85. The White and Hispanic estimates seem to be pretty much valid. There may be some upward movement on the order of 1-2 points in both Black and Hispanic IQ’s in the last few decades for unknown reasons. As you can see, Blacks and Browns score much lower on IQ’s than Whites, pulling the whole US average down, which will be reflected on test scores. Due to differential IQ’s US students will tend to score poorer than those of all White European nations and all-Asian Asian nations.
Our public education system is excellent. Steve Sailer analyzed a couple of years ago that we educate our whites better than almost any other white country, our Asians better than any Asian country, our Latinos better than any Latino country, and our blacks better than any black country. It’s just outrageously expensive because the marginal costs of it go to educating the uneducable.
Well let’s give credit where it’s due anyway. Sailer is virtually a Republican Party operative at this point, but I guess he is willing to buck the Republican National Committee on a few things. The RNC holds that the US public education system an outrageous failure, but as Sailer shows, it may well be the best on the face of the Earth instead! I worked in public education for six years as a substitute teacher, and I can tell you, they really put us through the grinder. See this post for more on that.
I worked in public education for six years as a substitute teacher, and I can tell you, they really put us through the grinder. Even as subs, we were under incredible pressure to teach those kids well and not screw up in any way. The administrators were monsters and were always looking for a reason to bust us or get us in trouble so they could fire us. We were under the gun all the time, and we could not slack off or mess up in any way. PC was enforced savagely, and you had to watch everything you said. Kids would continuously try to bait you into saying un-PC things so they could bust you to the administrators or parents. At the White schools, the parents run the show and the administrators work for the parents who stand up for their spoiled brats. Hispanic schools are much better and the parents have the attitude of, “You brat! You better obey that teacher or else!” Black schools are ok, but there is a heavy PC environment, and some of the Blacks hate Whites and try to bait you into saying un-PC stuff so they can get rid of you. Administrators are supportive and grateful to any White teachers insane or suicidal enough to venture into a Black school, so they will always back you up no matter what. Basic problem in Black schools is that many students simply refuse to learn. In the ghetto, many Hispanics also refuse to learn. In White schools, brats try to get away with murder. For instance, at a White school, kids were eating in class. I told them to knock it off, and they told me that their parents had petitioned the administration to allow kids to eat in class and the admins caved. I said, “So what. I don’t care what the administration or your parents say. I’m the teacher, and you won’t be eating in my class!” That’s the sort of BS you have to go through at a White school. Of all schools, a middle income Hispanic school is probably best of all. The kids are scared of the teacher and you basically terrorize them into obeying you, but that’s what they want to do anyway. They are raised in authoritarian family structures where the parents are to be obeyed, and many feel that teachers must be obeyed too. They don’t expect you to be nice, and they just hunker down, grumble and get to it when you hammer them for not working. You can basically Boot Camp the work right out of them. You really have to do this, even as a sub. For instance, as a sub, you show up, and the teacher will write, “Here is their assignment. Students will do these pages in the book.” The assignment is basically designed to take up the whole period. If you come into that class as a sub and don’t get some semblance of that assignment completed by the class, you’ve basically failed, and the administration or the teacher may try to make you pay for that. You really you need to bang that assignment out of them if only to save their own skin. That’s where the Drill Inspector bit comes in. Elementary schools are great in a way. Almost all the teachers are women, and a lot of them are single or divorced and looking for a man. There are almost no male teachers, and the male teachers that exist at all are usually queers! There might be a few straight guys, but they are probably married. You go into the break room, and it’s like you, one other guy, and a whole room full of young women, many good-looking, and a lot of them looking for a guy. Even the married teachers like to come around and “chat with the sexy teacher.” So if you’re a good-looking straight male, you basically landed in paradise. In addition, in the White areas, the mothers come around a lot after school, especially in the younger grades. A lot of them are single or divorced too, and many like to “flirt with the cute teacher” for some reason. On the other hand, with Pedophile Mass Hysteria nowadays, I am not sure I would want to teach in an elementary school. Junior high is Hellish with all ethnicities. There are a lot more male teachers, but a lot of them are still queer, just not nearly as many as elementary school. At high school level, you have almost 50-50 male and female teachers. There are a few queers, but really not that many, so most of the male teachers are straight, and a lot of them are married. However, at high school is where the PC crap is at the very worst due to extreme parental involvement. And this is where the kids play, “Bust the teacher” worst of all because they are older and smarter.
Are regular people (not rightwing idiots) really so stupid as to blame a President for high gas prices? I would say that in the vast majority of cases, the US Presidency has absolutely nothing to do with high gas prices. This holds true over decades all the way from the Carter Presidency. There was the Iranian Revolution under Carter, and we had gas lines stretching for blocks. American fools blamed Carter for that though he had nothing to do with it, and they voted in Ronald Reagan who began the destruction of our formerly great Republic. Anyone who blames a sitting US president for high gas prices or praises one for low gas prices is a moron who is so stupid one wonders if they should be allowed to vote or even to operate heavy machinery.
A female friend of mine made this for me by cropping another pic. She says it looks way better than the current one.
The liberals and especially the Left do this all the time, and of course, no one does this better than the Jew. In fact, it was the Jew who more or less started all this nonsense. Although I consider myself at best a nonracist person who fights against true racism, I try hard not to play the racist card too much. It’s a pretty serious thing to say about someone, so you need to think really hard if it’s true before you go leveling a charge like that at a person. It’s becoming overused and abused anymore that’s it’s threatening to derail antiracism via a boy who cried wolf effect. In other words, people are falsely and shrilly screaming racism so much that a lot of regular folks are starting to turn deaf ears to screams of racism. Outraged Leftist: “They say he’s a racist too!!!!! Let’s make a dartboard with his picture on it and then make a voodoo doll with his face on it and stick pins in it all nite! I’m all charged up with nowhere to go and my brain’s ground to a halt!” Bored reasonable person: Yawn. “So…..they called him a racist eh? What was the exact nature of this person’s transgression this time. Seems one can hardly step out their front door without being called a racist anymore.” Shrugs shoulders and waves hand in the air. By the way, do you think you could get me another cup of coffee?” Flipped out Leftist: Aren’t you fighting racism anymore! If you’re not fighting racism, you’re a racist! Check your privilege!” Annoyed rational human: Well, I would fight racism, but I have too many other important things to do, like watch my plants grow…return some bottles to the recycling center…you know, life is so busy.” Deep yawn. Black people, especially Black activists, have fallen into this trap in the worst way and in so doing have become victim addicts. I used to think of Blacks as hard and tough people who could take it all, but now I think of them as a bunch of screeching crybabies who do nothing but whimper, weep, and yell racism all the time. Blacks seem like such pussies when they do that.
I used to hang around Hollywood all the time, and there were queers following me around, staring at me, flirting at me, checking me out and even whistling at me everywhere I went. It was really annoying! I mean they would not leave me the fuck alone. After a while, I started putting up the biggest male Bitch Shield you ever saw just to try to keep them the fuck away from me. I guess I know how women feel now. At work, I kept trying to figure out who the queers were because that was a really important thing to figure out. One guy had a beautiful girlfriend, but I finally figured out he was basically gay. I had to put up the hugest bitch shield just to keep him away from me. His name was Arthur. Another guy was gay as the Ace of Spades. I tried to keep away from him, but one Friday afternoon around closing time, he asked me out! “Sooooo, what are you doing tonite…?” He cooed. Yikes! I quickly turned him down, but it freaked me out. Why did ask me out anyway? Every day around closing, there was this very good looking and very masculine “leather guy” across the street from my work in Beverly Hills. I would go to the window before 5 and look out. Every time I did it, he was looking right at me, daggers for eyes. A shiver ran up and down my spine. I left work and had to run a gauntlet down the street. He was watching me the whole time. I was shaking with every rapid step I took. I could not get away from him fast enough! Every day for two weeks, he took up position across from my window and stared right at my window, leaning against the wall in his leather jacket. Eeeek! I went out to eat with a friend from work in the cafe attached to the Tropicana Hotel. The waiter was an older queer and he wouldn’t leave me alone. There were other queers in the restaurant and they would not stop staring. One of the waitresses was friends with my female co-worker. She was really flirty with me. Later at work, my female co-worker said the guy who I was with at the restaurant was my boyfriend. I was like, “WTF????!!!!! Damn!” Years later, I would go to Hollywood on the weekend and run around nightclubs all night. At some point, I would go to the ready teller at the bank on Santa Monica Boulevard at midnight. I’m not sure if you have ever been to Santa Monica Boulevard on a weekend night, but it’s quite a spectacle to see. There is the biggest traffic jam you have ever seen, almost all male. It seems as there are hundreds of thousands of gay men cruising that street in cars or walking up and down it on the sidewalks. The side streets and back streets are equally packed. I don’t think it’s possible that there are over 100,000 gay men on that street on a typical Saturday night, but that’s what it seems like. It’s an extremely bizarre spectacle, like something out of a science fiction movie. It’s like the biggest army of gay men you’ve ever seen in your life. I would be getting money at the ready teller or walking to and from my car and these carloads of gays would drive by. They would see me and they would all lean out their windows and whoop and yell at me. “Whoo hooo! Yeah! Oh baby! Hey sexy! Hot stuff! Oh honey! Whoop whoop whoop!” One car after another full of guys would lean their heads out and all yell at me. It was pretty strange to say the least! I think the worst of it is I was always wondering why they were checking me out. I was always thinking, “Do think I’m gay? Is that why they’re looking at me?” I never figured out a good answer to that question. Do they check out all guys? Or just all hot guys? Or do they only check out guys they think are gay? Women were after me a lot back in those days too, so that made me feel a lot better. If it was only guys, I might have started worrying!
