  • 2022: More Stupidity, More Arrogance, More Evil, More Rebellion

    Chaos will reign as the future upends the past. Chaos doesn’t lend itself to prediction.Stupidity, arrogance, and evil ultimately destroy themselves, but their rampage was unabated in 2021. A group of stupid, arrogant, and evil people are using a virus and its variants to shepherd the world into a scheme of totalitarian global governance. This was conspiracy theory when the virus first surfaced; now it’s nakedly obvious reality. The one redeeming feature of the year was that more people saw the light. The self-impressed and self-anointed rule not by claim of divine right, but by claim of superior intelligence and...
  • A Crisis in America

    "When I hear a firecracker, I panic." As the new year brought the news that a million people in the United States have died of opioid overdoses since 1999, Andrew Doran wrote a piece in The American Conservative that deserves nationwide attention. The piece is titled "American Orphans in the Wasteland." While it's not about opioids, it's about the kind of trauma that exists in our country. In the case of Kevin Howard and Taylor "Doc" Hudson, they are vets who saw too much while fighting ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Doran describes how, for men like Kevin and Doc,...

    "Jill Haliburton Su, a wealthy, white woman who spent her spare time reading to the blind and doing charity work, was found tied up and stabbed to death in her home in 2014. Dayonte Resiles stood trial in December of 2021. His DNA was found on the knife used to kill her and elsewhere in Su’s home. Three members of his jury refused to convict him because they didn’t “want to send a young black male to jail for the rest of their life or have him get the death sentence.” Resiles’ retrial began Monday. Let’s face it, the left...

    Looking backwards in a few years, it is entirely possible that we will see that December 2021 was the high-water mark of the great progressive coup, when leftists reached out for the brass ring, but their soft, girlish hands were too weak to grasp it. It is likely all downhill for them from here, though that is not entirely clear to us right now. When Gandalf returned from getting balrogged in the Lord of the Rings flicks, he says, “I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide." Except all their big battles were still ahead. And...
  • 2022 the Year to Take Back Ground

    01/03/2022 3:57:37 AM PST · by Kaslin · 5 replies ^ | January 3, 2022 | Michael Brown
    I write these words as a declaration rather than a prediction, as a proclamation rather than a prophecy. Put another way, I’m issuing a challenge and encouraging a faith-filled mindset: let 2022 be a year of taking back ground! It’s clear, of course, that every year is mixed, with progress in some areas and regress in others. And it’s clear that, until Jesus returns, this world will be messed up, marked by pain and suffering and sin. But that doesn’t mean that we simply accept defeat as inevitable. Or that we embrace a mentality of hopelessness. Or that we develop...
  • The Great Supply Chain Collapse

    12/19/2021 4:45:03 PM PST · by RomanSoldier19 · 44 replies ^ | DECEMBER 13, 2021 | BY JAMES RICKARDS
    What’s at the root of the supply chain breakdown? That’s a critical question but the answer is almost irrelevant. The supply chain is a complex dynamic system of immense scale. It is of a complexity comparable to the climate as a system. This means that exact cause and effect cannot be computed because the processing power needed exceeds the combined processing power of every computer in the world. Most people have some notion of how supply chains work, but few understand how extensive, complex and vulnerable they are. If you go to the store to buy a loaf of bread,...
  • CNN’s Cooper: Arrogance of Unvaccinated Is ‘Infuriating’ — Shirking ‘Responsibilities’ to Society

    CNN anchor Anderson Cooper said Thursday on his show “Anderson Cooper 360” that those who choose not to get vaccinated against COVID-19 are arrogantly shirking their responsibilities to society, which he finds “infuriating.” During a report from a Michigan hospital, a 62-year-old COVID patient named Deborah LaRoche said she will not get vaccinated after her recovery adding, “I should be okay now.”

    Alongside Poland, Hungary has formed a semi-alliance of conservative central European powers, and has been an example of sorts for Western conservatives. They all should do more.Entrenched leftists within the U.S. State Department are supporting the effort to demote Viktor Orban from prime minister of Hungary, if a report in Financial Times is correct. The Biden administration also left Hungary off its invitation list for a forthcoming international virtual Democracy Summit on Dec. 9 and 10 to which some 100 countries were invited.“Trump and his enablers and those who invaded and attacked our Capitol, they don’t like the world we’re...

    The jury is still out in the U.S. on how to deal with Americans who are unwilling to get vaccinated, but European countries are increasingly choosing the stick over the carrot as governments across the continent turn to hardline methods from lockdowns to fines in order to coax the unvaccinated to take the jab. The message: get vaccinated, or don’t participate in society.

    Lawmakers like Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz have called for Dr. Fauci to step down and be prosecuted over the course of COVID-19. Fauci scoffs at such threats, calling it "noise." "They're really criticizing science because I represent science. That's dangerous."
  • For progressives, society is government and government is society

    I've written about this several times, and here is another instance. The Guardian asks: "Is society coming apart?" Most of the article is throw away, but here we get something extremely important: According to the Reagan-Thatcher worldview, there is no such thing as society. There are only families, who look after one another, and individuals, who participate in markets. The idea that government is the solution to people’s problems rests on a mistaken belief in the existence of society.The amount of honesty in these few lines is rather quite remarkable. First off they are completely incorrect about the "Reagan-Thatcher worldview",...

    Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. Turkey, stuffing, pie, four-day weekend… What’s not to love? But what makes Thanksgiving especially enjoyable are all the neurotic and narcissistic whiners who use the holiday to pretend they’re not Nazis. Nobody stole your land, you godless crybaby. Nobody slaughtered you or anyone you know, you squealing little gerbil. Why don’t you cry some more, bitch, while I add another dollop of whipped cream onto this fat slice of sweet potato pie. Yes, it’s these whiners who remind me of just how good life is in America. Imagine a country where life is...

    Despite a preponderance of the evidence proving COVID to be a non-event for most of us, over 1 million people have fallen foul to vaccine injury. This should be enough to stop most people in their tracks. It hasn’t. Many emerge from near death experience even more pontifical than before, denouncing the rest of us for not joining in this mortal game of Russian Roulette. Fuelling their self-righteous indignation of us, is other people’s self-righteous indignation of them. It is a perpetual loop of blame and shame. There can be no avoiding these people. A sort of Provisional Mask Army....
  • Losing Confidence in the Pillars of Our Civilization

    Millions of citizens long ago concluded that professional sports, academia, and entertainment were no longer disinterested institutions, but far Left and deliberately hostile to Middle America. Yet American conservatives still adamantly supported the nation's traditional investigatory, intelligence, and military agencies - especially when they came under budgetary or cultural attacks. Not so much anymore. For the first time in memory, conservatives now connect the FBI hierarchy with bureaucratic bloat, political bias, and even illegality. In the last five years, the FBI was mostly in the news for the checkered careers of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Robert Mueller, Lisa Page, and...

    One evening, in early September 1971, I sat in my grandfather’s study after dinner. I listened as he explained to my two uncles what Richard Nixon had just done by taking the country off the gold standard a few weeks earlier. My grandfather, a Republican, was livid. He railed against Nixon, called him a traitor, and said he should be tried for treason. My grandfather, Sam Hamburger, was the President of Production Steel, a company he founded in 1930 at the onset of the Great Depression. Over the next several decades, he grew his business into a sizable supplier to...

    Although leftists love to say they’re doing things “for the children,” the ideology they’re selling encourages young people to take dangerous risks. The past several years have seen me contemplating those children who came of age after Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Missouri. They are now older teens and young adults who watched George Floyd’s death and the January 6th, 2021, protest in DC., two events that undoubtedly confirmed their hatred for conservatives. These milestones created the type of hubris that led several individuals to presume they could beat an armed teen in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year with impunity. This...

    The shares of a fake meat company beloved by global elites crashed a dramatic 19% on Wednesday, reeling from pitiful quarterly earnings reports and enduring resistance on the part of the public to replacing meat from western diets with bioengineered slop. Beyond Meat lost nearly a dollar per share on Wednesday, reporting a third-quarter net loss of $55 million. The company’s executives have consistently maintained that the western public is ready to replace real meat with its synthetic bioengineered plant-based products, which many nutritionists and medical experts question as potentially dangerous. Executives also admitted they expect a bevvy of marketing...

    Just 70-80 years ago we had what was dubbed “The Greatest Generation” – the people who had fought and won World War II. Now, just a couple of generations down the road, we have unconditionally surrendered to a disease with miniscule mortality (for the vast majority of population), and which is to a large degree treatable. How did that happen? Roll back to the first months of 2020, when we just learned about the sinister new virus which was killing people and for which we had neither vaccine, nor cure. We were scared – in the 21st century we don't...

    Since forever, philosophers, economists, and conspiracy theorists have devised any number of elaborate theories on the nature of society and the motivations of human behavior. From the ideas of Adam Smith to Karl Marx, most of these models depend (at least somewhat) on the idea of rational human actors working to achieve reasonable results for themselves, their community, or society. But they are wrong.Similarly, there have been volumes written about how you should successfully relate to other people—but most assume that the person you’re talking to is a relatively intelligent, functional person, even though they probably aren’t. You probably aren’t,...

    In an exceptionally astute monologue, Tucker Carlson explains what’s happening in America and why it’s so damaging for ordinary people. People are beginning to realize that something is wrong with America’s ruling class and, by “people,” I don’t mean people like you, who are actively engaged in politics. I’m talking about people who want nothing to do with politics or people living in prosperous leftist who haven’t been forced to think about what’s happening to less affluent Americans. To the extent they’re sitting up and taking notice, Tucker Carlson’s monologue perfectly explains what’s going on at the upper reaches of...
