The Ukraine army begins to crumble.

I usually do not report the news of the day — it is impossible to understand the daily events except from the perspective of years. If one pays too much attention to the news of the morning, one is overwhelmed by meaningless noise. But today, a big change.

Today the Russians took a bunch of villages without much of a fight, and a bunch of prisoners without a fight. Little villages, and a small amount of turf, as usual. But what has changed is the a sudden diminuition in resistance. Among those villages that quietly changed hands was Robotyne, a tiny insignificant village and tiny insignificant patch of land over which so many vast rivers of blood have been spilled for the past year and a day. Exhausted Ukrainian soldiers are retreating in disorder across the front.

On checking the mainstream media, I see Baghdad Bob levels of denial:


The Russians Got Cocky After Avdiivka, And Sent 70-Year-Old T-55 Tanks To Attack Robotyne. It Ended Badly.

Yes, Russia is a gas station masquerading as a great power🙃

Yahoo News:

Russian Armed Forces fail near Robotyne: Five occupiers become prey for only two Ukrainian soldiers

The events they are reporting are not made up, those things really happened, but the implied frame, the implied context, is wildly and ludicrously out of step with the reality of what is happening on the ground, which is Ukrainian collapse. Russians are moving into formerly occupied Ukrainian turf, one squad at a time, one tank at a time, and sometimes they get an unpleasant surprise. But most of the time, they do not. “Oh, attempting to take Robotyne with one tank, and one armored personnel carrier carrying five soldiers failed? OK, we will have another go with two tanks and two armored personel carriers, each carrying a squad of half a dozen, attacking from different directions.”

The Ukrainians in Robotyne ran away without a fight. The fields around Robotyne are littered with Leopards and Bradleys, and the thunder in and around Robotyne which has been unceasing for a year and day has fallen quiet.

Fighting continues across the front, but Ukrainians killed has fallen dramatically, while Ukrainians taken prisoner has risen dramatically. Since the liberation of Avdeyevka, the nature of the fighting has changed substantially.

    I found this mainstream piece, a research done by our priestly class on why Americans refuse to believe Economy is booming. Very informative because it has everything discussed here: the gaslighting, the detachment from reality and the neologisms which I can only define as theological (“vibeflation”, lol).

    The article says that the average citizen perceives their financial situation as bad because they have to pay high interest on their debt. And interest on debt is apparently not taken in account when how Economists estimate inflation.

    I admit that the shameless way there Harvard researchers spin facts is fascinating.
    Everyone with half a brain understands that if the average citizen is so much in debt to be worried about the interest is paying each month, it means that things are pretty bad indeed. But to them it is only a matter of perception, amplified by “bad media coverage”. They predict that when the Fed will lower rates, everyone will realize how rich we actually are and enthusiastically vote to confirm Biden.

    There was little objection to the idea that diets need to shift toward healthier options and away from meat. […] As for “solutions” – interestingly conference participants were told that populations would have to be weaned off meat.

    I guess we have left the “voluntary phase” of “eat ze bugs”, and are entering the mandatory phase. Incidentally, this coincides with CBDC rollout timeframes. They may find a way to use the food shortages to force those in as well.

      From the Biden’s state of the union speach, I infer that the current Team A strategy is to abandon the Ukraine and the further reaches of empire, to focus on war upon the American people.

      I am unsure whether the Team B strategy is very different.

      On the Ukraine, the Biden said “provide Ukraine with the weapons it needs to defend itself”. But Team A is out of weapons, and is surprised by the inability of engineering lead Shaniqua to manufacture.

      Like how an Islamist government used “swine flu” as an excuse to exterminate all the pigs in Egypt. This caused malnutrition among poor Christians, as intended, but also caused great masses of rotting garbage to accumulate in the streets. At which point the army overthrew the Islamists, put one of its generals in charge, and imported new pigs from Brazil.

      Military rule is not great but not terrible either, a helpful backstop against bad governance. It’s remarkable and baffling to me how thoroughly the West has neutered its warrior class.

        Not baffling at all. Priestly rule always tends to lower the status of warriors to prevent alternative power structures from coming up. Priests in power are always suspicious of and hostile to warriors and rival priests.

      • skippy says:

        Military rule tends to be sclerotic, because officers are not priests. They don’t tend to have ideas, but “defend” ideas they learned while young – the product of some out-of-power priests. Military rule is often comfortable, but tends to be unsustainable, because officers cannot defend their children against priests. A society must always have both officers and priests under a king.

    What is the Jimian position on International Women’s Day? My view is that women who aren’t mothers deserve no honors, and that any woman who’s not hideously deformed can become a mother if she gets off her high horse and marries the man who’s willing to marry her.

        Heretics basically act like eggs are murder.

          This is true, so allowing it through.

          Trouble is that the Global American Empire runs lots of faiths that it would not like in docile and obedient provinces, but it likes to keep around in areas that are not entirely compliant, for potential use in creating trouble, giving it an excuse to intervene — the most notable example being the Ukraine Nazis.

          Your version of Sikhism is being run by the Global American Empire. for potential application as a crowbar against India, much as it is funding and running terrorist Islamic factions in Russia and the Nazis in the Ukraine. This did not work out too well for the Nazis, did not work out too well for the Chechens, and it will not work out too well for you, for the Global American Empire likes to destroy these suspiciously heretical and potentially dangerous tools in the course of using them. It also has a habit of assassinating leaders in these groups who prove suspiciously independent, or just know too much. You may recall a Sikh leader being nailed by US spooks, which they blamed on India, though the hit was quite obviously done by Canadian or US state instruments.

          They fund and arm groups they do not much like, for potential use against states they do not much like — but such assistance and funding, as the Chechens discovered, and the Ukraine Nazis are now discovering, comes with deadly strings attached. The problem is that they fund and arm groups that they hate, and this hatred always bites the group. When you receive aid and funding from people who viscerally hate anyone that does not toe the line one hundred percent, it is a deal with the devil. Since they worship demons, probably a deal with the devil literally as well as metaphorically.

          The Russians have pulled a lot of demonic icons off the bodies of dead Azov brigade members, and Hinduism is the product of the Aryan religion suffering entryism long ago from Dravidian demon worship. I suspect you will find some interesting religious icons among your fellow beneficiaries of furtive USG sponsorship. The USG attempt to converge the movements they sponsor.

          • Sher Singh says:

            The greatest demonic symbol is a wife held in equal standing.
            I’d say in this case among “Sikhs” it’d be the turbaned wife who dresses, acts, and is expected to look the same as the Husband.

            These types reject most of the later Sikh scripture which is heavy on the tales of Shri Ram and Shri Krishna; espousing a traditional Indo-Aryan religious patriarchy centred around the family hearth.

  7. Kunning Druegger says:


    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life and life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God… This man came for a witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth…

    I am in uncharted territory here. When I read the words from whence the above came, I was overwhelmed, I was smitten and felt stripped down to bones, no flesh or feeling, just a skeleton. And that skeleton was bent and broken, a cracked vessel. But a vessel I remained. I cried out to our God, and I was commanded to convey to you this: prepare ye the way of the Lord, servant of the Living God.

    Jim, I don’t know what this means, I cannot begin to fathom the purpose. But I was told to tell you, and I have told you. You can ignore this or delete this or do whatever you discern best. Once upon a time I declared you a prophet, and we had words, and because you are the Leader here, I stopped posting about it. I am no prophet, maybe none of us are. But I do know that many are called yet few are chosen. I knew then, I know now, and I will continue to know, because I have no choice, that You Are Chosen. Make of that what you will.

    Be strong, be shrewd, and be well, old friend.

    • jim says:

      Christ is the Stoic Logos and the Jewish Messiah. He said so, John hammered it hard, and in the first millennium of our Lord, everyone knew this, and they read their Stoic philosophers, in particular and especially Marcus Aurelius.

      Then during the second millennium, people started expunging that as a “pagan addition” — which expungment is called “Judaization” and “Judeo Christianity”. It is a heresy. Needs fixing. Judeo Christianity and the Perpetual Virginity of Mary. The protestants corrected Perpetual Virginity, but most of them are worse on Judaization than the Orthodox. They think Paul is insufficiently pure.

      The problem is that if Christ is not the Logos, then Divine Law lacks inherent connection to what the natural world tells us about natural law, then priests are free to add no end of moral rulings that are convenient for priests and inconvenient for everyone else, and bury ancient principles in layer after layer of re-reinterpretation, Talmud style.

      Gnon. Nature or Nature’s God. He speaks: I am that I am.

      Yahweh is not the name of God. Jehovah is not the name of God. These names are derived from the old Hebrew abbreviation of “I am that I am”, expressed in a form that suggests the meaning “I am that which causes existence”.

      • Fidelis says:

        Relatedly, what is your take on the Bible being uncorrupted Divine Word? I take the spiritual meaning of such as correct, that the Word is more Real than the world we live in. However, the books were compiled together by men, some added some removed. Further, and this I recall you’ve said some words yourself on, there is a tendency to take everything as literal, physical truth, that leads to holiness spiraling and unreasonable stances with regards to what can be deduced by observation of evidence.

        Having the Bible is a very useful schelling point, how do you square this circle of a spiritually fulfilling text, without holiness spiraling on overly literal interpretation?

        • jim says:

          Overly literal interpretation is the escape hatch for those that do not like the spiritual meaning. People who want an escape hatch will find one.

          It as is pointless to debate the literal meaning with them, as it is pointless to debate a flat earther. You need to discuss the spiritual meaning.

          The rocks testify that there was death in the world for aeons before Adam. Now let us move right along and discuss what the Bible tells us about how men should deal men, and men and women should deal with each other.

          • Fidelis says:

            Simply disregarding such people feels fruitless. Many are handed such memes and never question them. I am not an agreeable person, and so find delicate rhetoric near impossible, but I have a sense that these are potential converts.

            More importantly, it seems quite difficult to go to spiritual interpretation without destroying the utility of the shelling point. It becomes much easier for entryists to talk about how this great Jewish Community Organizer said such nice things about how gays are fine as they are and adultery isn’t a big deal. You need a meta consensus, like the old creeds or the articles, on top. Which seems hard to manage and coordinate without a soverign annointing his head priest. Not to mention official interpretation on top of official interpretation judaising the text into a new talmud.

            My understanding is that you see a, high enough, likelihood of a soverign appointed priesthood. In the case we don’t have such a privilege, how would you go about maintaining a priestly consensus, however small, until the times recognize the need of an official state church?

            • jim says:

              > Simply disregarding such people feels fruitless. Many are handed such memes and never question them. I am not an agreeable person, and so find delicate rhetoric near impossible, but I have a sense that these are potential converts.

              I don’t suggest ignoring them. If they accept the spiritual meaning of Genesis, will lose interest in the literal meaning. If you instead persuade them to doubt their interpretation of the literal meaning, this will not render them more likely to accept the spiritual meaning.

              > how would you go about maintaining a priestly consensus, however small, until the times recognize the need of an official state church?

              Gnon speaks through the material world. If they accept what he says, they will similarly forget Perpetual Virginity and Judaization, both of them being rationales for not listening to what he says through the material world, and creatively and elaborately re-interpreting what he says through the Bible.

              When someone makes an argument that is not entirely a good faith argument, that is based on motivated reasoning, he believes X because it presupposes W, and he does not want to defend W, and implies Y, which he does not want to admit, it is pointless to debate it like a good faith argument.

        • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

          Prosaic answer is that there is such a thing as laity. Post-rationalism is knowing where no good answer can be produced by a particular subject (or clade of subjects) no matter how he thinks about it. The Church is not a ‘priesthood of all believers’, it is a priesthood of a priesthood, magisterium. The social question of what the spirit is is answered by a prince bishop that pronunciates it.

          He that might better hear the voice of God might better profit; he that might better hear the voice of God might prophesay, that others might better profit; that the prophesayer becomes a conduit of God; God speaks through the prophet, that others might profit. Divine Law understood not as hurdle but as gift; a tool that may shape its wielders in particular as much as it may shape the creation in general; that that which might observe it might participate in the power of God – participate in God – subsisting, over that which might not.

          • FrankNorman says:

            Regarding your suggestion of a “prince bishop” – yeah no. Nope.

            The game of “What is true is whatever the special people in robes and funny hats declare to be true” has been played many times over in history, and it always seems to lead to the special people declaring that what’s true is that everyone else should be giving them piles of money, and not holding them accountable to any of the rules that a functional society has to apply to everyone.

            Or in this day and age, the medical “magisterium” telling you to get in line for your clot shot like a good little test subject.

            • jim says:

              You do need a mechanism for establishing an authoritative consensus about right conduct, and especially what conduct justifies retribution, so that everyone is on the same playing field.

              Such a mechanism is however grossly misapplied when it addresses material cause and effect, such as global warming and vaccination. Such things are not matters of consensus.

            • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

              You don’t have a choice whether you have a state church or not. You always have a state church. The question isn’t whether you have a state church or not. The question is what character that state church has. What character of selection effects, for what character of men that occupy your state church. Whether it is explicit about its role, and thus emendable, or occulted about its role, and thus necessarily calumnious.

            • alf says:

              There needs to be a state church that tells people their shared identity, or rather, as PC puts it: you don’t have a choice, it just happens. It is natural law. And it is good — if we don’t know what we share with each other and our ancestors, how do we expect to work together?

              Obviously, the power to tell people about their identity is a power that will be abused as surely as the sun rises. So over the course of centuries ways have emerged to keep the clergy in check. The biggest one being that a big stick always outholies any overly holy man, as Thomas Beckett, who found himself much holier than king Henry II, learned. That is why it is a state church, because it is a church in service of the state, and a healthy state is monarchical. That is also why a state led by clergy disarms its citizens, because clergy hate being outholied by sticks.

              A great deal of our current religious problems would immediately be solved if journalists, academics, NGO-activists and other assorted members of the leftist clergy would fear the king’s stick.

      Real reason is Lukashenko is a USSR-continuity president, and the USSR was also highly feminist. It’s useful for serious opponents of the current system to realize that much of the world, including that part of the world opposed to some of the things Progressivism is now doing in the USA, is feminist, and feminism does not work any better under a leader for life than it does in a democracy.

He will not be able to, unless he recruits reactionaries and political prisoners out of prison to do the cleanup, or winks at us conducting a white terror analogous to the way the left winked at assault and murder by BLM and Antifa, and the way the French Thermidoreans winked at their white terror.

                  10 rep max on shrugs went up by 300lbs over last 3 months.
                  Main factors:
                  Figure 8 straps – used by powerlifters & strongmen.
                  They lock u in, but are less annoying than versa grips or hooks – easier to wear than regular straps.

                  Alpha Progression app – yes I shill this hard.
                  It helps you progress by 1 rep or 1lb at a time even between off (bad) days.

                  What shills do is attack reactionary memes without mentioning those memes, instead assuming that no one anywhere ever would think such a thing. Shills are always talking about what they are not talking about. Their ostensible topic, what they are purportedly talking about, is merely a wagon to carry the real payload.

                  Your link was in substantial part an attack on patriarchy, while pretending to be about no end of completely unrelated topics and never explicitly mentioning patriarchal memes, nor even acknowledging they exist.

                  You were only shrugging the barbell before or, more likely, are simply lying. Shrugs are easy to go heavy on, but I know how big the guys are who shrug well over 500lbs for reps, and I also know you arent one of them. One lie, all lies.

                  If you want to call me weak, post proof of you shrugging 400+ for 10 reps. If you’re not going to do that, well I regularly shrug 1000lbs on an ohio bar for 20minutes prove that I’m lying you scrawny faggot.

                  For the audience, for rows a bit of heave is fine, your lats serve to hold the upper back straight as well as pull the humorous to your sides, so the extra tension is carried through the tissue regardless. For shrugs, I see the majority of the bigger and stronger guys settle for stricter reps, longer holds at the top. I don’t have a good anatomical rationalization, but from self experiment I do believe the stricter shrugs are more valuable than jerking. Verification of these statements is left as an exercise for the reader.

    Some weeks ago ivy league faithful were surprised to hear that the supreme rubberstamp had decided to take up the case of state election apparatchiks gatekeeping Trump from being listed on the cattle’s ballots.

    This week, they were even more surprised to hear that the court had rule unanimously in favor of trump.

    One of the larping females wrote in her opinion that ‘the object of the court is to lower the national temperature, not raise it’. This is Team Brezhnevian language par excellence.

    Doubtlessly there were many ‘private conversations’ between ‘friends and coworkers’ in the lead-up to this, where no small number of hints were dropped about how ‘this may have implications on national stability’ and ‘this may have far reaching implications as an unintended consequence if made precedent’.

  11. On the state of Europe. If I consider Jim the gold standard of 100% redpilledness (and I am certainly not there! there is much normalcy bias in me), Viktor Orban is maybe 20%. He has no idea of the WQ, he thinks he can just bribe women into having kids. OTOH he does get how the GAE works something like 50% and has some basic good horse sense about how it is harmful for Hungarian Christian nationalism.

    No one else even comes even close. Geert Wilders just thinks the problem is that Muslims are not liberal and yet liberal elites are pushing them in. I will give him a generous 5%.

    The AfD in Germany is led by a lesbian woman whose partner is an immigrant from Sri Lanka. Not sure whether to give 5%, or call the whole thing an opportunistic fake crap. @Karl, what do you think?

    I am actually Hungarian, though for the time being not living there, but this might change. I am good friends with someone who is good friends with someone who knows people who have Orban’s ear. Sort of wondering about what could I do. Maybe I could do something.

    One thing I really love about Orban is when he said we are quite open for Western European immigration, whites fleeing from Muslims. Hm, that would work well for our demographics and eugenics. We are bit dumber and more chaotic than Germans on the average and could use those genes.

Chrupalla (co-leader of the AfD) was pierced with a needle and shortly thereafter collapsed – he still doesn’t know who injected him with what. So no, it is not opportunistic to campaign for the AfD. Anyone with half a brain could earn more money with less risk somewhere else.

      If you give Weidel 5% you are generous. She represents the left wing of the AfD. Many inside the AfD don’t like her.

          It was not even a false flag as there was never was an attempt or even planning for an attempt.

          One of the geezers indicted is indeed from an old noble family. All upper nobility in Europe is related. So of course, he is linked to a royal family (Germany used to have 4 kings, so that bar is not very high).

                  You might as well argue that urbanization, industrialization, and not enough of dem programz paying women to have kids is the root of the fertility problem. As is endlessly repeated here, the issue is lack of paternal control and fake marriage leading to inability to feel secure in one man and endless fucking around. Everything else barely moves the needle.

      Basically true, in the old days known as Conquest’s Second Law. “Any organization not explicitly and constitutionally right-wing will sooner or later become left-wing.”

      • jim says:

        Because the left is social entropy, any left wing organisation will be dysfunctional. Walt Disney illustrates this — the movies are not merely irritating because plot, story, and character development is dumped for Woke, they are irritating because done badly — poor editing, poor (though very expensive) special effects, post production dialog that fails to synchronise with the character’s lips and actions. Absolute rookie errors.

        Recollect how badly and crudely Obama’s birth certificate was faked. I know how great the NSA used to be, now it is crap. The problem is that leftism results in non stop and ever more intense politics, so people get jobs politically without regard for whether they have any ability to do the job, or any interest in doing it.

        The reason leftism mutates so rapidly and randomly is that leftism has no essence, it is just whatever rationalizations are handy for knocking over the most shaky looking apple cart with the nicest looking apples. When that apple cart is smashed and the apples gone, it will grab some new rationalization for the next apple cart. The ideals of leftism are just flags to gather a mob around for the next smash and grab.

        • OK, but why? Is it because they are hiring 78IQ niggers or because even among white men, Bioleninism dictates that the dumber white men drive out the smarter white men?

They solved “DIE” by adding “diverse inclusive” to any prompt text, they did not even try to engineer this, neither about historical fact vs. utopian dream, nor about the very basic idea that they only want to include people things they consider good things. This looks like a job done by a dumb intern.

            Here, I think Pournelle’s Iron Law explains things. (Someone needs to write a more succinct version.)

            First, there will be those who are devoted to the goals of the organization. Examples are dedicated classroom teachers in an educational bureaucracy, many of the engineers and launch technicians and scientists at NASA, even some agricultural scientists and advisors in the former Soviet Union collective farming administration.

            Secondly, there will be those dedicated to the organization itself. Examples are many of the administrators in the education system, many professors of education, many teachers union officials, much of the NASA headquarters staff, etc.

            The Iron Law states that in every case the second group will gain and keep control of the organization. It will write the rules, and control promotions within the organization.


            One should be aware that the second group declines in competence over time. New politicals are hired as time goes by and the work output becomes less and less important.

            By the way, I’ll add my endorsement of Yegge. He’s a natural writer even if it’s mostly of the type “Star Gate. Open. Mind. Blown.” Great stories anyway. Not sure how Silicon Valley is these days but some years ago this seemed to be the natural tone of conversation.

          • jim says:

            This decline in capability is also visible in the Disney movies. Not only did they substitute woke for story, plot, and character development, they also had bad dialog, bad editing, and bad special effects. A smart person giving a woke lecture instead of a good story is going to boring, but woke should not in itself adversely affect scene and viewer point of view transitions. These were affected by stupidity, incompetence, and negligence.

            The problem is that people were given jobs and roles on the basis of politics, not accomplishments. Politics kills organisations that have to accomplish real things. Leftism is politics, rightism is the forceful silencing of politics and organised self defence against politics. Leftism is disorder, rightism is order imposed.

            Disorder is natural, order naturally dissipates. To maintain a viable entity, one has to acquire order from the external world, and expel internal disorder into the external world. Leftism is analogous to parasitism or cancer, disorder sufficiently organised to acquire order from higher entities that have a higher form of order, that it transmutes into a lower form of order, A woke organisation or a woke polity is analogous to a person with cancer, hence the saying, “Go woke, go broke.”, currently exemplified by Disney with Star Wars, the Incredible Sulk, Bitch Marvel, and so on and so forth.

            Translations of Japanese anime suffer a similar problem — they are not only being translated to woke with characters being gayed, transsed, and politically corrected, they are also being translated badly, by English speakers who are just not very good at Japanese, and the translated humour is distinctly unfunny. The left just cannot do humor.

            You need an immune system to attack cancer and parasites, and polity needs an inquisition.

        When we are talking about matters like possibly WW3, likely with millions of deaths in Europe, possibly whites getting genocided in the US, how much relative importance should be assigned to someone wanting to flaunt the ghey in a videogame?

        Serious men should not care about videogames much anyway. Attention is a resource to economize.

        Or is it to fight them on all fronts, even if these things seem unimportant right now, looking at the serious issues we are dealing with, because in the long run, the 11 years old boys for whom flaunting the ghey in a videogame gets normalized, will be the leaders in 40-50 years?

          A great deal. It is one brick in a wall, and if you allow one brick, there will be another brick, and eventually you will be bricked out of your video game, then bricked into a death camp. It is analogous to Nato creeping closer and closer and closer to Moscow with the intent of eventually arriving in Moscow, draping the great Cathedral in the rainbow flag, holding the gay parade in Red Square, tearing down the statues of the honoured dead, which are now being torn down in every Nato acquisition, and teaching kindergarteners to choose their sex, as they are now being asked in formerly ultra conservative Poland.

          In retrospect, Russia should have gone to war, ready or not, at Nato’s first acquisition after Eastern Germany. If they had rattled nukes then, nuclear war today would be far less likely.

          Leftism is like cancer. If you don’t destroy it while is small, it will very quickly become big. The nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty first centuries are overwhelming and decisive evidence for the slippery slope.

              Conservatives do not like government requirements for hiring degreed people, because during the last couple of decades, the correlation between degrees and ability has vanished, and during the last decade or so, the correlation between a degree and the likelihood that a hire will not beat up people and steal whatever is not nailed down has greatly diminished and arguably vanished.

              And conservatives will say so, and do say so. If you cannot hear them saying it, it is because you are in a bubble with your head stuffed up your ass. The only people who favor these requirements are useless freeloaders, and useless free loaders are the core voting block of the left. Everyone in favor of these requirements is a leftist, as near to all of them as make no difference.

Communism that is fine with severe inequality provided the commissars get the goodies and the white working class is kept in their proper place — benignly looked after the commissars instead of cruelly mistreated by the capitalists. Don’t worry about George Soros, we need to regulate pizza. Pizza is oppressing the masses.

Which is probably an accurate description of the RNC that has responded to the recent primaries by resigning in disgrace but is unlikely to be an accurate account of the new lot coming in to replace them and is a wildly false account of CPAC, a wildly false account of the grass roots Republican party activists, and a wildly false account of ordinary Republican voters.

                  Has worked — that is what enabled him to defeat the RNC. He originally planned to start a new party, the Patriot party, but instead cut a deal with the Rinos — and, thanks to Christian Nationalist shock troops, the deal has worked out in his favor and to the disfavor of the Rinos.

                  You cannot keep hostile enemy entryists out without a litmus test, Christian Nationalists have a litmus test, Nationalists do not, and are overrun with enemy entryists. You need sufficient purity to stop what was done to Trump in his first term from being done to you.

                  The Trump organization was and is overrun by people in the pockets of his enemies. The only elements of it on which he can rely are Christian Nationalists, even though he himself is a 1980s leftist, and really does not like or agree with the christian part of Christian Nationalism. But he is a genuine nationalist, and Christian Nationalists are genuine nationalists, and they are the only nationalists on which he can safely rely.

                  Christian nationalism is not going to work. It might work for a short time, it might work in the sense that it is the last muscle in the body that’s willing to put in the work, but it’s not the ‘save civilisation’ option.

                  Observe that all the cool kids on gab, who do not identify as Christian nationalist, dislike the CEO of dab, who identifies as a Christian nationalist.

                  Christian nationalists are uncool. They have hitherto not produced a single cultural icon. Just riding the wave of old social technology.

                  For a faith to spread, it must be fashionable. Pax was right: nobody cares about ‘old type Christians.’ It is after all in the name: it’s old. People want something new, even if that new thing is an old thing wrapped up in shiny paper.

                  Jim, you have created something new. I have proposed different names for this something new – Jimianity, Jimian Christianity, or my recent favorite: Jim’s Christianity and its Jimchristians. For something to be fashionable, has to have a new name.

                  William of Orange is known as the father of fatherlands for a certain European country. Everytime Max Verstappen wins another race, the Dutch anthem praises William. Rather less known about his life is the following. Despite being a very talented man – he was emperor Charles V’ favorite for a reason – his final years were somewhat disappointing. The reason for this was that William, until his death, tried to reconcile the irreconcilibe, namely the rebellious nature of the Dutch provinces with the inflexibility of the Spanish Habsburgs. He even went so far as to invite over a Frenchman to rule over the Dutch, which Frenchman promptly stabbed William in the back.

                  So why then the moniker ‘father of fatherland’? Because it became a post-humous title after his assassination. The symbol of William turned out more useful than his actual late-years politics.

                  It is the alt-right circus all over again, just with slightly more Christian packaging.

                  And you might respond, well, it is different from the alt-right, because Christian nationalism will have things like outspoken Christianity, shill protection, patriarchy, throne altar freehold, and so on.

                  Which reminds me of the story about the salesman selling a rock to an old lady:
                  salesman: ‘this rock makes the most lovely soup!’
                  lady: ‘I have tried the rock but the soup is bland.’
                  salesman: ‘well obviously you need to add vegetables, chicken and some salt. But then it is the most lovely soup!’

                  We should sell the soup, not the rock. And I realize that there is a very big rock movement supporting thermidor, and a very tiny soup faction. But what can I say, I like to dream big, and I see a new generation of [insert your movement name] youngsters not just rebelling against the bs, but adressing their elders’ arguments and having the better answers. Isn’t that just what every young intellectual dreams of?

                  I guess my spicy take is this: only if the movement is undeniably attributable to you and your ideas, will it not be co-opted.

                  Well I guess that is your point — that if not attributable to me, Christian Nationalism will be overrun by shills and entryists the moment it gets within smelling distance of power. There is a whole lot of McChristianity, fake Christians analogous to Rinos. And as soon as it gets near power, there will be a whole lot more of that among the Christian Nationalists.

                  But once leftism is stopped from getting ever lefter, it will die. Team B, horrified by the collapse ot the Global American Empire, is now taking small and inadequate steps to slow down team A — for example a family murder rather close to Cocaine Mitch is being investigated, the corrupt judge in one of Trumps numberless indictments is being investigated. (You will notice that everyone noticing is using my terminology, Thermidor, Team A and Team B)

                  Team B intend to allow Trump to win, but nobble him as in last time around. They grossly under estimate what will be needed to stop team A. In previous rounds, the steps required were drastic. We are far from being out of the woods, but it is now at least possible that leftism will be stopped at its current level of evil and insanity, and will then die, for a shark must swim or drown. At that point, a vacuum. Vacuums get filled. It has been a wild ride, and it is likely to soon get a lot wilder.

                  At which point new strategies and tactics become appropriate, tactics as yet unforeseen and unforeseeable. Should I be summoned into the prophet role, it is likely time to die. We shall soon see what is needed. Preferably something that does not involve me dying.

                  Thermidor, if it happens, is not the end but the beginning. What you are calling the rock faction, the faction that wants to return to Clinton/Obama normality, cannot succeed. Normality does not lie in that direction. Thermidor is fragile, unstable, and unpredictable.

                  Historically, the choices at this point are usually the Cambodian autogenocide, or the Principate. Sulla and Pinochet attempted to restore the Republic, using vastly stronger measures than Team B. They did not succeed. Our sample set, though small and diverse, is sufficiently large and uniform to conclude that the Team B project, what you called rock soup, return to Clinton normality — is not going to fly.

                  Yes, what you are calling the rock soup plan has support and power vastly exceeding support for the program of this blog. It does not matter. They are suffering from normality bias. The wild ride will only get wilder until people recognise the new abnormal.

                  The program I proposed a little earlier (that in the coming holy war, the troops should be rewarded with obedient wives, power, and property to stash those wives in, solving the woman problem, the military recruitment problem, the law and order problem, and the fertility problem in a single measure) may soon look a whole lot more likely to be implemented.

                  As normality bias finally dissipates, solid one hundred proof Jimianity becomes a lot more saleable, and I may well stand a better chance of surviving selling it.

                  Augustine converted to Christianity after such conversion became mandatory in the Roman Empire. It was already officially the state religion, having been unofficially the state religion since Constantine entered Rome. Saint Augustine very belatedly joined the side that had already won decisively, and then proceeded to greatly influence it.

                  Luther survived because a King who was pissed by the Pope coveting what was Caesar’s gave him protection and armed support.

                  If you become High Priest, and I become Grand Inquisitor, then after that it will be time for Augustine.

He had already killed that bitch Jezebel and after eating a quick meal saw that the dogs had alteady eaten everything of her wretched corpse except her nasty hands and feet. He had put an arrow through the arms and heart of Amatziah. An impossible shot. From both these incredible victories he should have recognized that God was with him. He should have continued acting in a direct and reckless fashion.

            His first fuckup was using subterfuge with Baalite faggots. Even joking about worshipping idolatry is filth. Instead he should have had faith and called on the people to rise up and slaughter them all. This would have been far better, bc the false priests hate absolutely nothing more than being hated by the mob. The sight of all the northern tribes hunting them like the animal filth they were would have broken them. But because he acted like a mincing two faced bitch, he signalled weakness. This cascaded and he continued his weakness with the calfs. A disaster.

            Had he not done that, he could have kept the southern kings on the straight path, we would have eventually reunited, the commonwealth would have smashed the invaders to pieces and we would still be in our land.

              The bottom line is, trust God. Be smart but dont let your brains and weakness turn you into a bitch. Jehu was better than most but he could and should have been more. He failed bc he let fear overtake him. He should have observed what God was showing him directly and taken heart.

        Advantage of quads may be in a mobile drone launch pad capacity, or running supplies, fuel, to be delivered or more likely buried in caches. Deploying two man fire teams.

Modding is always an option, I assume any commercial dual purpose bike used for warfare would also be modded.

        In regards to using quads as a mobile drone pad, you could have your driver and your operator potentially remain on the vehicle while still in motion, with the deployment device adhered or otherwise attached to the chassis. May be unlikely that you could have multiple heavier payloads of anti armor drones, say, Switchblade 600s, because of the massive weight difference between that and a drone whose payload is essentially a 40mm grenade. Would need to think about suspension distribution weight capacity etc.

        Re bikes v quads, have you heard the good news of the Rungu:

    • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

      Main problem with battery power is that it significantly complicates the logistical challenge of keeping things rolling.

      Hydrocarbons provide a medium of energy storage, transmission, and generation, all in one, fractionable and distributable to any scale, with even the simplest of materials and equipment sufficing for the provision of such.

      Low sound signature is a definite advantage; but there are ways of making engines run quietly, especially when small. On that note, it is also an obvious advantage to use bikes that combine pedal and motor power, for greatly increased range on one hand, and greatly increased speed and mobility on the other, where one or the other alone would suffer, and weight and size of platforms inflate.

      There is, also, another factor that must be acknowledged. Which is… the fact that riding a motorcycle has by far the highest rates of accidents injuries and deaths of any ‘regular’ activity and it’s not even close. For that matter, it beats out many ‘irregular’ activities as well. It takes a mere 48 miles of driving, in terms of statistical aggregate, to beat out the chance of death from going skydiving, for example; which is not even counting the continuum of damages from mishaps short of death.

      The basic reason why is obvious of the face of it: a bicycle is a two wheel inline platform with no inherent stability, only dynamic stability. And if something disrupts that dynamic, it quickly becomes terminal. Bottom line is that mass deployment of bikes can and likely will coincide with a not insignificant amount of attrition without ever even meeting the enemy.

      A number of ameliorations present themselves. One is the equally obvious solution: add a third wheel. Trike configurations offer dimensional stability on the same basic platform.

      Another is procurement of protective equipment. Something both soldiers and smart riders already do. The most efficient way to protect against blunt force trauma is with plate harnesses that redirect the force around the body, instead of through it. In other words, operational necessities point in the direction of your metaphorical bike dragoons becoming quite literal bike dragoons, too.

      On the subject of distributable mobility enhancement, something else that would be salutary is procurement of hiking trailers as part of a squadman’s kit. This isn’t mutually exclusive with any of the foregoing, it can be done as is in any case, nor does it involve any particular marginal costs or trade-offs, being a metaphorical equivalent of money laying on the sidewalk. It is a strictly superior method to rucking that isn’t de riguer amongst existing institutional organizations for various reasons, chief amongst them being institutional inertia. Nothing happens unless a czar of vision makes them happen.

      • Yul Bornhold says:

        Bikes, quadbikes and trikes all offer another advantage: the rider can wear enough heavy body armor to give ordinary enemy riflemen a headache. Won’t help against drones and antitank weapons but I suspect it would go a long way.

            Fast wheels usually get shredded by 50cal positions, which in turn will be slower than advanced drones.

            It will all come down to who can knock the drones down.

            Space will probably become an impassible debris wasteland before you can get off the rock.

              Critical mass is critical mass. The smallest possible fission weapon must contain an approximately spherical critical mass of plutonium, surrounded by a considerable amount of conventional explosives. So the smallest possible fission weapon difficult to fire through even very large artillery.

                Yes, critical is still critical.

                  The Davey Crocket, eighty pounds, two and a half feet long, is inherently the smallest nuke that can built, and it is terribly inefficient — it contains enough plutionium to destroy a city, the same amount as an enormously more powerful bomb, but they had to shave back the implosion to make it small. Waste of good plutonium. It contains the necessary amount of plutonium, which cannot be made any smaller than it is.

Space Aliens have given the government flying saucers, and they are secretly building them 🙃

                  The Davy Crocket was far too big for its intended deployment role, and extraordinarily wasteful in the disproportion between the amount of plutonium it required, and smallness of the explosion it produced. And its undersized deployment system firing a grossly oversized warhead could not launch it far enough from the person firing it. If you ever fired the Davy Crocket for real, you would have to get far too close to the enemy, and in the unlikely event that you lived long enough to fire it, you would not survive the resulting explosion.

                  Like the space shuttle, it never really worked, and to the extent that it ever could have worked, we no longer have the technological capability to do that sort of stuff.

              A MMG is sufficient to defeat a squad of bikers, but in an environment where an MMG emplacement is vulnerable to being spotted and knocked out by drones…

              The purpose of motorbike dragoons isn’t to ride through enemy lines all the way to the rear without engagement, it’s to give infantry the ability to occupy the best possible position from which to engage in old fashioned rifle battle, and to get out of that position and find a new one fast if fighting goes on long enough that the enemy calls in arty or drones on you.

      • embeveraged commuter says:

        Quads tend to land on their riders and kill them when they roll over. Trikes killed a bunch of riders then got banned so we won’t know. Look up the fortnine trike video for more.

        Anti-bullet armor isn’t the same as riding armor. You could probably add light plastic pads for joints and back, stiffen the boots against crushing, and put lower head extensions on the helmets, but that would make it hard to fight unless removed well ahead of combat.

        I’d vote for elite infiltrators on dirt bikes, and regular soldiers in chenowth buggies or similar. I don’t know about buggies, but they seem safer for pvt jackass and capable of carrying heavier gear.

        • Aidan says:

          Not that hard to ride or fight in a combination of dirtbike gear and a plate carrier. We don’t have helmets that are combination anti-frag like a military helmet and protect the jaw like a dirtbike helmet, but those would be easy to make.

          Riding a dirtbike with a heavy pack on is hard. I would probably deploy a light truck for every given few bike dragoons, a jeep wrangler or the equivalent, to carry extra gas, ammo, food, and maybe manpads. It couldn’t go all the same places as the bikers, but it would stay in the area, maybe a little back from the lines, to provide fairly easy resupply in the field. Or one could sub two side-by-sides for one truck, which could operate in closer tandem with the bikes.

          • Yul Bornhold says:

            Two conceivable technologies:

            1) VR helmets with cameras and sensors that gave the wearer 360 line of sight. Obviously, would take quite a lot of training to get used to but very advantageous.

            2) Weapon mounted to the bike and operated by the driver using neuralink or something similar.

            With that kind of loadout, could expect viable motorbike units that operate not as dragoons but that fight on the wheel. With 360 LOS, they could detect and evade FPV drones (or at least have a better chance of it) and with the specialized firing system, they could hope to hit the enemy while moving.

            • jim says:

              The current state of vr is such that this would be suicidal.

              But the current state of military tactics is such that getting through enemy lines into the enemy’s rear is feasible and frequently useful, and for hundreds of kilometers around the front, troops have to fight dispersed. People are casting around for some method of penetration that enables one to get a reasonable distance, reasonably fast.

              And important factor that you neglect is that it is all about information. If you can find the enemy, you can kill him.

              What is needed is information gathering technologies – drones that can triangulate gunshots between two or three drones, and drones with synthetic aperture radar, like bats use.

            • jim says:

              I think your vision of the twenty first century cossack lags behind the current reality of warfare.

              What grunts do, and what you envision your cossacks doing, is direct fire, which matters less and less. The vast majority of casualties are the result of indirect fire, mostly shells and mortars that go up to substantial height, then come down from above. Direct sight matters less, because drones, and direct fire matters less, because drones.

              Small weapons are becoming more and more important, and big weapons less and less important, because if you can find it, you can kill it, and the bigger it is, the easier it is to find. So yes, bikes. But not direct fire.

              What is needed is a grenade launcher with some form of automatic aiming from drone vision.

              And you want to be able to move these small weapons around very fast, so that they are harder to find and target, and the bigger it is, the harder to move around, so, a bike mounted grenade launcher.

            • Mayflower Sperg says:

              Jetpacks are the ideal battlefield mobility solution except that they’re extremely dangerous and hard to use. But people learn to fly helicopters, ride unicycles, and walk on stilts, so elite soldiers could probably learn to fly jetpacks too.

              • S says:

                They are too short ranged and vulnerable- everyone is already going to be scanning the sky for drones so a person flying is going to have a short life expectancy.

                Looking it up, there are long ranged jet packs, but hydrojet packs require direct connection to water.

                I don’t think any tech advances can make it feasible; you are fundamentally limited by how much a human can carry (as they also need to carry gear, weapon and ammo).

      • Aidan says:

        Bikes are dangerous on road. Off road, speeds are lower and a fall is a relatively frequent occurrence that doesn’t endanger the rider much. Every off-road motorcyclist takes a few spills. When compared to combat, this shrinks into insignificance

        • alf says:

          Off-road mountainbiking is up there with rugby and kickboxing in terms of injuries. Of course the risk/reward ratio might still skew towards the latter, but there’s a lot that can go wrong biking through say a forest.

          • notglowing says:

            The difference is the injuries are usually as bad as a few broken bones, whereas highway motorcycle accidents are quite fatal.

            That said, with the right gear and safety precautions, most motorcycle accidents in general are fairly survivable.
            The thing with offroad is that when you do mess up, it’s less punishing. And getting used to falling down and being hurt a little is good for your attitude. It takes a considerable amount of stamina to keep up for long periods though.
            I was sore for days after enduro. Knowing I’d have to lift my bike up from the dirt is what convinced me to start lifting weights.

          Typical motorcycle fatality occurs on public roadways, most frequently in the following circumstances: Cat lady plows into motorcyclist at urban intersection after her box of wine; dumbass with a 175 HP sport bike gets eaten by guardrail/careens over it and into the abyss on a mountain road when his tires hit something strewn on a corner of a mountain road.

          • Aidan says:

            Indeed. I feel safer, or at least less likely to have an accident, on my 150hp sportbike than I do in a car because there is a lot less to hit and it is easier to get out of the way. I expect that among skilled riders, accident frequency is actually lower. I was pointing out that the high statistical danger of motorcycling shouldn’t be applied to off-road riding, and that high statistical danger is a combination of people who aren’t cut out for riding fast and Karen zonked out on psychiatric meds.

      Democrats are in power, there is no need for riots this year. They will want to look calm and in control.

          The Western Left is always rioting a little bit here and there, but usually it only reaches the level of background noise. I do recall that things kicked up the week after Trump was elected, and again around the time of his inauguration.

          I agree that could happen again, but I’m predicting there will be nothing serious (beyond silly stuff like the occasional “free Palestine” march or assholes blocking traffic) until after the election. Because the Dems want to look like the calm, stable option as much as they can.

          Now I’ll admit that if the polls start to look like an absolute Trump landslide and he’s still not jailed or Oswalded… then anything could happen and all bets are off.

            Aside from that, the Palestinians’ relations with other Arab states are only slightly better than their relations with the Jewish state. They lost the West Bank in 1967, fled to Jordan, started a civil war there, lost, fled to Lebanon, and started another civil war there, so it’s pretty obvious why Egypt won’t just open its border and let them in.

      On the front near Avdeyevka, they will soon reach a natural defensive line, which will be very difficult to cross — a big deep river, the Vochna, with hills on the other side that are great for artillery and mortar observers.

    America Is Heading For Its Own ‘Thermidorian Reaction’

    Authored by James Howard Kunstler via,
    Comes Thermidor

    “Democratic Party elites such as those on CNN are not just angry but genuinely confused by the fact that American voters don’t obey them.”

    – Glenn Greenwald

    What’s most amazing about the fiasco that was the French Revolution is that it happened at exactly the same time that the United States successfully organized themselves into an orderly and effective government following the American Revolution. George Washington was elected and sworn-in by April of 1789, with the backing of an exemplary constitution assembled by the best minds in the land. The Bastille fell in July that same year. France then fell into a years’ long orgy of beheading and chaos that went nowhere until 1799 when an artillery officer named Bonaparte put an end to it by sheer force of personality.

    Of course, France had assisted America in concluding our revolt against King George — surely you remember the Marquis de Lafayette from your high school history class (or has he been replaced by George Floyd?). There were plenty of Frenchmen still on the American scene during the years following the British surrender at Yorktown in the fall of 1781. Some of them must have kept tabs on the Constitutional Convention, May to September, 1787, out of which came our blueprint for managing national affairs, and not a few of these Frenchmen were active in their own revolution which kicked off two years later.

    By the way, Thomas Jefferson was in Paris from 1784 until autumn of 1789, months after the Bastille fell. He succeeded Ben Franklin as minister there to negotiate trade agreements (Ben went to London as ambassador). John Adams was also on-the-scene in Paris as our ambassador there when Jefferson arrived. These Americans met daily and chatted endlessly with France’s political players. The American Articles of Confederation were in effect then, to be replaced by the improved US Constitution in 1787. The people of France, including the various elites involved in public life, royal, haut bourgeoise, lawyers and generals, might have taken a lesson from the American experience of how to successfully come out of a political tribulation. Alas, they simply could not get their shit together.

    Rewind a little to 1793 in Paris, the revolution in full swing: King Louis XVI went to the guillotine in January. The National Convention had replaced the National Assembly as the furnace of political action. The radical Jacobin faction, led by Robespierre and Saint-Just, coalesced into a power-seizing majority there. They took their name from a political club founded by anti-royalists, but their platform became increasingly extreme as the revolution lurched toward pandemonium.

    During their year in power, the Jacobins turned the life of the nation upside down in their zealous quest to create a perfectly equitable society. They abolished the church (and replaced it with their own “cult of the supreme being”). They changed the week from seven days to ten days, they changed the names of all the months of the calendar. (1792 was denoted “the Year One.”) They put in price and wage controls while churning out money (paper assignats) which triggered (voila) monetary inflation! They confiscated grain from farmers all over the country. They condemned thousands (estimate: 20,000 to 40,000) of political enemies to the guillotine in their “Reign of Terror.” In short, the Jacobins made a bloody mess of things and pissed-off a lot of their countrymen.

    By the summer of 1794 (in their renamed month of Thermidor), everybody else finally had enough of the Jacobin nightmare. On July 27, Robespierre was at the rostrum once again denouncing his enemies and crying for blood when the out-group members present started throwing food at him and shouting him down. That was the magic moment when everything flipped — the shock of recognition that the Jacobins had lost power. Just like that! The chamber fell into a melee, a lot of shoving and shouting. . . Robespierre and his cronies were chased across town to the city hall (Hôtel de Ville) and barricaded themselves inside.

    The mob broke through and arrested them. Somewhere in the confusion a policeman shot Robespierre in the face, shattering his jaw (no more speeches for you!). . . and the very next day, Robespierre, Saint-Just, and twenty of their associates had their appointment with “the national razor.”

    The Arrest of Robespierre, The Night of the 9th to 10th Thermidor, Year Two, 27th July 1794

    This event became known as the Thermidorian Reaction. The insane Jacobin program of terror and social derangement was swiftly abolished. Nothing like it was seen again until the Bolsheviks, the Maoists and the Khmer Rouge came along in the 20th century, and now, in our time, The Party of Chaos as led by “Joe Biden” (or whoever and whatever is behind him), with their open border, their lust for another world war, their drive for censorship, their sadistic lawfare, their race and sex hustles, their compulsive lying, and their sick destruction of every norm and boundary in daily life.

    America is headed for its own Thermidorian Reaction. It’ll end up being called something else, of course, because it is a different time, place, and set of circumstances. But it feels close, doesn’t it? Everybody I know or correspond with mentions this feeling that something is going to blow in our country, and pretty soon. The air is alive with it, just as the air is alive with portents of spring. Are you waiting for it?

      > America is headed for its own Thermidorian Reaction. It’ll end up being called something else, of course,

      Nah, likely it will be called Thermidor, because you heard it here first and I named it first.

      Thermidor unlikely to be the end of the drama, rather the beginning. When the French Thermidor unleashed the right against the Jacobins, the red terror ended, and did not resume for eighty years, but during the intervening eighty years, the French got a mighty rough ride.

      Holy war is coming.

          The underlying mechanism is as follows. The lefter can get away with doing bad things to the insufficiently left, and do so, and it becomes more and more dangerous to be insufficiently left. So everyone tries to be lefter than everyone else, so the crowd runs leftwards faster and faster.

          This process can only be halted by it becoming dangerous to be too far left. And that is Thermidor. Thermidor has not happened till Trump has a row of scalps hanging outside the White House, or Soros and company have been killed in the streets.

          The left is not going to stop doing bad things to the insufficiently left until very bad things start happening to the excessively left.

          But by this point all the institutional mechanisms for generating social consensus on what the rules are have been systematically destroyed, the left killed them, gutted the corpses, and wore their corpses as skin suits, so what happens next tends to be that issues are resolved by violence, so power tends to fall into the hands of some sort of warrior bureaucrat — a man competent in logistics and procedure, who mostly sits in his office doing paperwork and attending meetings, but also with steel balls, the capacity to face danger, and the capacity to carry out violence personally should the occasion arise.

    • skippy says:

      American Revolution was a “special” revolution because it was a ‘revolution’ of de-facto states against another state, and a general (Washington) was both in charge and not in charge – in charge enough to prevent holiness spiraling, not enough in charge to become a tyrant. The American Revolution therefore became a revolution in ultra-slow-motion, the reason why America has been so successful for many decades until now, and also the reason why it has eventually come to the situation now.

      • Anon says:

        This is an odd telling of the history of the American Revolution
        My understanding is the american revolution started with the puritans in massachusetts in 1765, then the revolution “won” like the viet cong “won” in
        vietnam with massive helping from left in US, the revolution got help from leftist in Britain.
        Then after 1781 you had democracy in the colonies which resulted in the 1789 right wing coup with Washington and co.
        Washington had a blanket power to use , but he and the founders were larping Rome.
        I recommend The origin of the American Revolution by Thomas Hutchinson gov of Massachusetts from 1758 to 1774.
        He died in exile in London 1780.

          The book by hutchinson is called Strictures on the declaration of independence.
          The book about the history of american revolution is called
          True history of the american revolution by sydney george fisher.
          Which i recommend and the book by hutchinson.

        • skippy says:

          Well, yes, all true. But nonetheless this happened through the structures of de-facto states and was moderated by generals in their de-facto armies, ultimately the supreme commander Washington. I am not saying American Revolution was “good”, but less demotic and less chaotic than subsequent revolutions, in which tiny/alien groups took over suddenly and destroyed old institutions. USA ‘benefited’ from the fact that UK control over USA was never strong in the first place, meaning less institutional destruction requried/took place to carry out revolution.

        I don’t think the Thermidoreans have come to grips with the fact that to have thermidor, it has to become dangerous to be too far left, just as it is terribly dangerous to be too far right. Some of them probably know it, but figure it is not yet time to say it. But they are going to have to do it, or, more likely, allow it to be done by those who have more steel in them than the Thermidoreans do. If they are unwilling to allow it to be done, or if there is no one allowed near power who has the necessary steel in him, Thermidor will just be another scam like “Trust the plan.”

        • Mister Grumpus says:

          From here at least, Thermidorians begging from the rooftops for someone to come out and do their dirty work for them looks exactly like Shareblue and the FBI baiting suckers into the next J6. Emmanuel Goldstein type shit all over again.

          • jim says:

            I think the begging is sincere, but that they are likely to respond to whomever gives them what they are begging for by stabbing him the back. In the French Thermidor, the reactionaries did Thermidor’s dirty work, the white terror, then got slaughtered. They sincerely want someone to take care of the radicals, then after the radicals have been taken care of they are going to sincerely want to kill whomever gave them what they wanted.

                I am silently deleting a bunch of obvious Thermidorean shill comments full of exciting revolutionary rhetoric and excited hope for the future, but strangely failing to commit any thought crimes, or even to notice the weaponization of the justice system or crude and blatant election rigging. A strange inability to notice acts of terror by Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and many others. All sizzle but no steak.

                Leftism will go on getting lefter until it becomes dangerous to be too far left, as it has long been dangerous to be too far right. As long as one side can use to violence and terror, and the other side cannot, leftism must get ever lefter, ever faster. You are not serious about ending the left singularity, until you have a little list. But I do get the feeling that they are hoping for someone else to draw up a little list.

                • Mister Grumpus says:

                  An interesting game theory problem. How can the Thermidorian shills plea for people to do their heavy lifting, while somehow also promising to not stab them in the back afterward?

                  Any such words, anywhere near that effect, would be obviously prosecutable as a “stochastic conspiracy” to overthrow the government, and are thus simultaneously great J6 bait. Schroedinger’s Revolution.

                  > Even Beria took a bullet in the end. That’s known too, but the Thermidorian shills won’t bring it up, I’m sure.

                  Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future But now more possibilities are open than ever leftwards, ever faster. And we have the advantage of knowing more history. Beria was murdered, the French reactionaries were murdered. Deng lived, but his legacy is coming unstuck at alarming speed. Monck lived, and his legacy lasted a hundred and seventy years.

                  Monk had a delicate touch, and Trump has a delicate touch – but I fear he lacks the steel that Monck and Deng possessed.

                  Shortly before the 2022 elections were stolen, when it became obvious that the Republicans were in bed with those who were going to steal them, in return for being allowed to keep a few scraps, Trump threatened to start the Patriot Party.

                  And then he cut a deal with the Republicans, which disgusted the Republican party activists in his base. But to their, and my, surprise, the deal worked out in his favor, as his deals tend to do. I fear, however, he will once again attempt to cut a deal with those with whom no deal can be made. This was Putin’s big mistake, which he made over and over again.

                  But people who just will not fulfil a deal, eventually find themselves at war. This is inevitable, sooner or later, and the time is getting late. They live in a bubble, and have systematically cut off all contact with external reality. This makes it impossible to negotiate with them, impossible to find a way of coexisting. They inevitably blunder into war, sooner or later. In the end, will be at war with legacy Americans, or genocide us. Living in unreality always proves fatal sooner or later. Unfortunately for us, the first thing to penetrate their bubble may well be nukes.

                  We also have similar reactions that fizzled out and got everybody killed or exiled. The White Russians roughly fit this pattern, and surely many others that I’ve forgotten about.

I conjecture that if Trump is allowed to win, and double crosses those who allowed him to win by choosing a martial Christian nationalist to deal with the radical infestation, we will come out of this OK.

                  The generalisation we can make from the data however is that fishing the man who is to take care of the radicals out of prison works, though our sample size is too small to be statistically reliable.

                  The alternative to nukes is a slow escalation that gives the GAE time to conscript every man, woman and child and send them to die in trenches.

                  That would be unfortunate for me and mine. Nukes would destroy military and adminstrative centers, i.e. progressive hives. Me and mine are far enough from such targets. The nukes might even give me a new government or the Thermidorians reason to find their balls.

                  Hence, I don’t think it would be unfortunate if nukes are the first thing that penetrates their bubble. Quite the opposite really. I think that would be fortunate.

      *That* is a population collapse far worse than anything I’ve yet heard of. Some of it could be due to emigration, but men in their forties have had an extra twenty years to emigrate. Or was this count taken after a great many twenty-something men died in the war?

      • Thefeebleclone says:

        The title of the article Steelkilt posted says volumes It purports to explain wy Ukraine is “starting” to lose conviction”, obviously a euphemism for “Why we’re forced to begin admitting it”. And describing a conviction as “shaken” is an odd way of describing a public whose support for the foreign national running their country is at about 20%. Even if the mean average is accurate, we all know that 20% would not be a representative 20%.

        Even Russians will tell you they fight like lions. You can’t equip anyone well enough to fight the Russians with the ferocity they have. Is there a country in NATO with a military that could fight like that? But that time is over. The tragedy is an entire generation of lions is being slaughtered.

  28. A2 says:

    Apologies for the short-termist content but I just listened to a podcast segment where a left-leaning analyst talked to a leftist host. There were some interesting points.

    1. Democrats aim to take the House in order to suppress the coming Trump dictatorship. They seem to have given up on Biden though.

    2. The youths hate Biden because of Gaza and have demonstrations wherever he appears. This indicates among other things that Biden won’t be able to drum up the usual support staff, and won’t win. Kamala is toast too, because of a lack of accomplishments while VP.

    3. Instead, everyone is now looking at third party challengers. These should seem sane in comparison to Trump and Biden (conveniently grouped). There are many parties but few that can reach the whole country. RFK jr (perhaps with Andrew Yang) may be the strongest challenger. There also is a dark money party named ‘No Label’ consisting of republican cucks and moderate democrats. Mitt Romney and suchlike may be involved. These at least have rich sponsors.

    I also had the misfortune to listen to a Financial Times roundtable with two men and three women speaking broken english and dominating the conversation, in particular a think tank Jewess. I have to admit I fell asleep in the middle, but there were two takeaways at the end, both supplied by the men.

    1. If Trump reduces the Nato effort, are the rest of the participants ready to defend themselves? Emphatically NO from the journalist.

    2. If things go (global) south, which bloc will India join? It seems the US is the considered the by far likeliest option.

      2b) India isn’t going to join the US while America is agitating for war against Russia, Iran and China similtaneously.

      • jim says:

        England definitely does not have nukes. Their tech level is heading back to early iron age. France likely has working nukes, but the way the wind blows, probably not for much longer. England has some very old nuclear subs that they can no longer repair or maintain, and each year have fewer of them. The nuclear submarines have nuclear missiles, which are unlikely to be able to launch. Should they launch, unlikely to reach their targets, should they reach their targets, their bombs will fizzle.

        Thing is, the subs get regular patrols, so when something goes wrong, they try to fix it, and if the fix works, they know it worked, and if it fails, which it usually does, they try something different. Their nuclear missiles have not been subject to this regular testing regime, and when tested (two tests over the past eight years), failed, to which failures they responded with denial, rather than any attempt to address the problem.

        If they thought they were able to address the problem, would have promptly attempted a fix and then launched the modified version. If one failed, and they took a look into it, then tested another, you might say, some duds. But failure and they just blow it off, all duds. They are all way past their planned lifetime, like the subs. Their nukes reached use by date a long time ago.

        3. This was a bit unclear, since they then basically started talking about spoilers. But that doesn’t combine too well with nobody likes Biden, I assume? Both examples could draw Trump voters though. Then just fortify the election a little bit. (They of course didn’t mention that possibility.)

        1b. Well, assuming the nukes work, and Russia has them too. But I think the interesting part was that they know they are woefully unprepared and are willing to say it. (With a hint of ‘please stop Trump’.) Compared to the unrealistic chest beating one has heard for so long.

                All pretexts for doing leftism are contingent. In times of high ordering, this usually involves playing one relationship off against the other. In times of low ordering, this means dispensing with all relationships in general. Do not forget that they are indeed relationships.

                • Fidelis says:

                  Nationalism even in our time presupposes I give up resources in order to safeguard the interests of those far in space and mind, at the whim of… who exactly? At the time it was justification for termination of the old rights of the nobility in order to funner power to a smaller set, perhaps done reflexively in the age of conscription, and now it’s justification to burden those even further down the ladder of power in service to a collective identity based on spurious claims of distant kinship. It’s taking a real notion of kinship and diluting it beyond all meaning as a justification for collecting resources to a central coordinator.

                  It is a matter of ordinals. Brothers, cousins, clan, country… leftists using nationalist language say those things because they are trying to do leftism. A man like Trump is nationalist and does not say those things because he is not leftist.

            The question being discussed is what war tactics are appropriate. World War I tactics are horrifyingly costly. How then can one conduct an offensive?

            The “fantasy” is how to regain war of movement. Electric motorcycles seem like a really good idea. Current tactics consist of sneaking around on foot, in single tanks, and small squads in a single apv. A single motocycle is obviously going to work better. If the trend is to smallness and furtiveness, motorcycles are the end result of that trend. Russians recently made a big advance by sneaking through the porous front line as individuals on foot, and then forming a flash mob to grab the enemy’s rear. Doing that on motorcycles would obviously work a whole lot better.

            Hordes of expendable replaceable meat just are not working very well. One very good drone operator is responsible for a significant proportion of all recent Ukrainian casualties — we are drifting towards early iron age warfare where a single very good warrior with very good and very expensive equipment can make the difference between winning and losing, and tenth century warfare where men fought largely as individual heroes.

            We are moving towards aristocratic warfare, with the likely result that we will return to aristocratic governance.

            As equipment becomes more expensive, and the difference between an elite wielding it versus an interchangeable grunt wielding it becomes greater and greater, it is time for heroes and nobility. A single very good man with very good equipment can turn the outcome of a battle.

            To properly move towards elite warfare, we need to award the heroes property, power, and obedient pussy, for property and power is worthless without pussy. The time for feudalism returns.

                Despite all the propaganda about Russian human meat wave attacks getting mowed down like zombie hordes, video footage from the front shows very small groups and individual heroes, often a single soldier.

                The age of heroic warfare returns.

                As I said, soldiers are acting more like spies, saboteurs and entryists. We saw one three hundred kilometer infiltration. (The flash mob destroyed some key facilities, then vanished.) — do that with enough people, form a flash mob three hundred kilometers in, and cut the enemy off, rather than vanishing, and you can escape static World War I trench warfare by grabbing three hundred kilometers in one snatch.

                Currently the flash mob tactic is being used to grab up to eight kilometers in a single leap, to avoid slogging it out foxhole by foxhole. If eight, why not eighty?

If their pace of territorial conquest remains linear, then they will handily annex Donetsk and Luhansk, but not threaten Kiev. If they wish to capture to the line of the Dnieper, their rate of gain will need to accelerate.

      If they keep winning places without a fight, their tempo will naturally accelerate.

      What has been holding them up is long, long, immensely bloody battles for absolutely insignificant villages. Many thousands of men died in and around Robotdyne, the area around it is littered with tanks and APCs, yet it just fell in half an hour to a dozen men.

      That is an increase in tempo – and likely to foreshadow another increase in tempo, and another, and another, over the next three months, like the last hundred days of World War I.

      I saw an interview with a veteran of Bakhmut and Avdeyevka. He said Avdeyevka was easy because the Ukrainians had no fight left in them. They had even less fight left in them in Robotdyne, a little village half way to the other side of the Ukraine.

      The Ukrainians are not only running out of shells, they are running out of fight.

      By the way, lovely to see you pass the test with a thought crime related to those specifically mentioned, but not exactly one of those specifically mentioned.

    What I think of the whole affair is that, while Russia isn’t our friend, I don’t care what they do, as long as they do it over there, on their side of the fence; that it is foolish for Western powers to meddle in their side of the fence, unless actually looking to go to war with Russia; and that the anyone thinking that Ukrainia could somehow defeat Russia militarily is as ridiculous as thinking Mexico could defeat the USA.

      That’s probably true as far as the United Mexican States is concerned, one corrupt ramshackle failed state versus another, but Mexican drug cartels could easily defeat the USA; one could argue that they already have. They just don’t see the US government as a serious threat, and are more interested in seizing territory from rival cartels.

      Do you think America would be the” friend” of any country that conducted itself as America has towards it?

      What I’m saying is that the unfriendliness is not inherent in the relationship. In my uneducated but not unfounded view the initiation of hostilities has been overwhelmingly one-sided in my lifetime. That is, America has excluded Russia from defensive cooperation, violated strategic truces and understanding [AMB withdrawal, expansion of NATO] and openly conducted operations expressly intended against Russia.

      Can you think of any corresponding behavior by the Russian government? I wouldn’t be surprised if there was, but I haven’t heard of any – not the Russia’s critics have been exactly meticulous about arranging facts to validate their decsions.

    The Ukranian nationalists made a deal with the devil in the end of course it didnt work out.

  37. As an American I am rooting for Russia to win, simply because “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” and Ukraine is the democrat/rino money laundering machine.

    What I’m hearing, I think it was on smoothiex12, is that after the collapse of the major strongholds like Avdeyevka and the attrition is the ability to reposition troops is severely restrained. Thus Russia can determine where to attack all across the front line. The Ukrainians simply don’t have the resources to reposition from feints or massed attacks at specific points.

    My father attends a Urainian Orthodox Church – I think illegal in Ukraine at the moment. These are some of the most beautiful women and men in the world. It is a small wonder the Linthay Grathams of the world want to fight to the Last Ukrainian.

    By the way, I thought of your blog because I saw a middle aged celebrity who was beautiful and I thought of your shill test. I was snookered by two successive older women. I didn’t understand why good friends told me it was a mistake.
    Single older women, at the end of their reproductive age, should not dress attractively. They should be expected to be dowdy. Young men should be sexually drawn to women who are most capable of reproduction.
