"Don't blame me...I voted for Trump"

“[R]evolutions are made by fanatical men of action with one-track mind… They overturn the old order in a few hours or days, the whole upheaval takes a few weeks or at most years, but the fanatical spirit that inspired the upheavals is worshiped for decades thereafter, for centuries.”—Boris Pasternak

When Will We Stop Faking Reality?

If we honestly reflect on the accomplishments of the Trump administration, we clearly discern results based on sound business principles without the excuses for failure that politicians have given us for their own greed and ineptitude.

from NCRenegade dot com    February 19, 2021

The Trump administration did spend too much money. We may never know if the the alleged $200 trillion stolen by Wall Street and the political elite is true or if a portion of that money would have been recovered and used to pay off the debt. We may never know if the pandemic was implemented to destroy the Trump economy.

What we do know is how much damage can be done in one short month as the government has surpassed our worst case scenarios:

  1. Construction pipeline/energy jobs lost.
  2. Gas and energy prices skyrocketing.
  3. Propaganda and censorship of the news.
  4. Washington, D.C. is an armed camp.
  5. Texas is in shambles.
  6. No one knows who is in charge of the military.
  7. Educational institutions and industry are teaching critical race theory.
  8. The president is not taking calls from foreign leaders.
  9. Climate change is used to control our livelihood, energy consumption and oppression.
  10. Iran is dictating terms for nuclear war.
  11. The second amendment is under attack.
  12. Immigration policies have opened the borders and released criminals.
  13. Executive orders have replaced Congressional legislation.
  14. Vaccinations are used to restrict travel.
  15. Cancellation of our culture has been expedited.

The future looks bleak. We have our faith in the Lord and have even won a small battle allowing churches to reopen (but no singing allowed). Reason tempered with faith are all we need to overcome tyranny. As I watch people suffering, I wonder how long until they wake up. The longer it takes, the more blood will be shed. What do you think we will look back upon in another month from now? Continue reading...https://ncrenegade.com/editorial/when-will-we-stop-faking-reality/

Imagine if you will a governemnt so pathetic that they ignore a fraudulent election and impeach the actual winner after he left office“Cancel Culture is a Dress Rehearsal for Mass Murder”

Quoted on The Red Elephants
Stefan Molyneux said :

“They call it character assassination, because it’s a rehearsal”, he says. “The kind of lies that are told about me in the mainstream media, in wikipedia and other places, are specifically designed to get crazy people to target me in a violent manner”.

On February 18, 2021 Sasha O'Conner wrote on The Red Elephants, click here to read at the source

Political philosopher and public speaker Stefan Molyneux asserts in a recent public speaking event that “cancel culture is a sociopathic dress rehearsal for mass murder.” He goes on to say that “when communist get into power and when socialists get into power, they kill us.” Stefan Molyneux was banned from all major forms of social media not long before the 2020 election after being falsely labeled as a “racist” and an “extremist”.

“It’s an incitement to violence” 

“They’re seeing if people can be disappeared from social media” and that “if people can accept people being disappeared from social media, then they will accept people disappeared from the world.”

Beto, Bernie, and Barf tell you what they really wantThe 3 Stooges: Beto, Bernie, and Barf

On According to Hoyt
Sarah Hoyt wrote :

I almost named this post “You are not psychic.” And I swear I already have four or five by that name, because the left’s favorite thing is to tell us what we’re really thinking when we say something. And what we’re really thinking is what they want us to think, so they can revile us.

On February 18, 2021 Sarah Hoyt wrote on According to Hoyt dot com, click here to read at the source

This is how crazy sh*t became enshrined in their credo like “everyone to the right of Lenin is racist.” Because if you say anything — and I don’t mean remotely close to race — they don’t like the explanation is always “You’re saying that as a secret dog whistle.” But this is more serious than the left’s belief that we all meet down at the ol’ conservative lodge (I can’t find one in our town) and agree on secret code words which we’re going to use to hide our racisssssm sexisssssm and homophobia.

I mean, that’s completely insane, because honestly the right has jobs and couldn’t meet every week if you promised us free beer and chocolate.

BUT the left believes it, with a gut-deep belief. Other things they believe: that the biggest problem in the US is white supremacy. That white supremacy can be multiracial (arooo?) That if you’re on time to work, are efficient, can read well and know how to do your job, you are a white supremacist.
The list goes on. In the end — because the left ARE racists — they equate whiteness with competence and intellect and the white supremacy they’re so scared of is “people doing their job minimally well.”

And it’s not being psychic. They don’t actually claim to read our thoughts. They just “know” what and how we think because they were taught to believe this is true.

So, to begin at the beginning, the left are the “good boys and girls.” I honestly don’t know if this was always true, even back in the 1920s when Agatha Christie treated communists in her books as misguided, fundamentally good people.

We have this idea of the leftist revolutionary, not afraid to stand out for what they believe, etc, but we get that from the media and entertainment which has been in their hands for a century.

Having grown up in an old-style country, most of the hard left ping the same spot that the religious fanatics ping. Look, a lot of them, in Portugal, changed from insane Catholics, to insane Communists when communism was the “ruling” ideology. I’m not absolutely sure this isn’t true for a lot of the left in families that were…. how do I put this? “System religious.”

System religious is the type of person who does all the observances to the point of ridicule, but who cannot understand the larger picture, or that there is ANY give in the system.

The same type of older girl who would accost me outside mass and tell me I was going to hell because I’d turned away coming from communion and turned my back on the sacrament two seconds too early (and cause major collisions in the line) two years later was a communist and telling me that unless everything was redistributed to the penny, society was “unjust.”

This is because it’s the same type of mind. There are people who get confused by interaction with individuals, and annoyed by individual differences and preferences. So, instead of trying to figure it out, they try to find a system that explains everything. Bereft of one, they will build one. This is one of the stages of the development of teens. They build “explanation systems” for just about everything they are likely to see in daily life. It won’t take everything into account, or fit everything, but it fits their limited place in the world and experience, makes interacting with others less scary, and lets them function.

In the course of growing up, the system breaks. You meet people who don’t fit the matrix you created. You are exposed to more and more complex situations. Eventually the system is abandoned, and sometimes you — me for sure — look back and go “uh. I had everything upside down and sideways.” (The same can be said for my first three years in the US when I was desperately trying to find a clue and a way of acting that would work. I would take stray comments as gospel, etc.)

The problem with Marxism is that it’s adolescent system with DEFENSES. Also that it’s so pervasive in the media, education, news, etc, that most people don’t know it’s just a system of cobbled together explanations that don’t really work and have never worked anywhere. When you hear someone say something like “Oh, but Marxist analysis is really good for–” theory of music/literary analysis/historical study… whatever, it’s already too late, and that person might never break free. Marxist analysis is only good within the system because the system has defenses built in. Most of them are lies, distortions, or, more and more, outright crazy cakes. But if you don’t look outside the system, it appears to be “good”.

This is roughly the same as if the only way you had to judge the quality of a fiction book was a tape measure. Bigger books were held to be better. Awards were given by measuring the book. You never actually opened or read the fiction book (Or in the case of Marxist analysis used it for its intended ludic purpose. Yes, all fiction books have a ludic purpose, even if they also have a “message” or some redeeming social critique. Look, even if you’re reading a book in a foreign language to get proficient, there has to be enjoyment in it, or you’ll give it up. I have in my library a copy of Dandelion wine, with the cover encased in plastic [because it went everywhere with me for six months] and pencil marks above the words I didn’t get, with the Portuguese translation. If you met me at fourteen, you probably saw me with that book in hand and a pencil behind my ear. But, you’ll say, if I was reading it to become proficient, why desecrate Dandelion Wine? Why not read one of my brother’s engineering books, in English? Or my SIL’s medical books also in English? Because as much “eating live frogs” as the first three months of reading the book were, the story pulled me forward and was engaging. And the last three months, I was reading at almost normal speed, with sometimes total stops while I got out the dictionary. )

And if I told you “But that’s a stupid way to analyze a book” you’d say “No. All the fattest books win the awards, so the tape measure method works for literary analyzis.” That is what you’re seeing.

Look, every adollescent system has defenses too. That time we told younger son we were going to take him for ice-cream and he shrieked we hated him and ran from the room, that made sense in his system. (No, I have no idea how. Maybe he thought he was too fat. At the time he could walk between drops of rain without getting wet, mind you. Or maybe he thought the system worked by separating from us, and since we wanted to go out with him we were evil.) His defense against questioning the validity of whatever crazy-cakes system he’d concocted to explain his world was to decide we must hate him and run screaming from the room.

It helps if you see a lot of the left’s attempts at psychic-powers as being exactly the same. In their system, we’re required to do things for certain reasons. Because if we have other, rational reasons for doing things, the simplistic Marxist system of viewing the world breaks. And that can’t be allowed, so each of the positions has a further retrenching position.

Take the kerfuffle over the plastic rocket, for instance.

As most of you know I have a degree in Literature. Comparative literature, for my sins. Nothing that could be done about it. In the antiquated system I worked with, having a degree in languages necessitated one in literature.

I knew that objectively and by the experience of most of us who read a lot since childhood (it’s an addiction) the quality of the books winning the plastic rocket was in free fall. It’s not just that the use of words is somewhat lacking. It’s that the ludic enjoyment of such books has gone down to close to zero. (The two aren’t linked. Edgar Rice Burroughs was a hot mess on the word level, but his stories are fun.)

So when we went charging in on more balls than brain, I expected their defense to be on the uncouth level. “The things you suggest are uncouth, and you don’t have the refined palate to appreciate the things we love” (said the aesthete while smearing shit on himself, not like those uncouth clothes the peasants wear.)

Since I have been fighting attempts to make me act the class I was born into — or to quote mom “give myself my own respect” — since I could toddle, I was prepared for that.

What I wasn’t prepared for was being called racist, sexist, homophobic. Or being told I was “afraid of change.”

That later one is actually extremely revelatory if you view it as a psychological defense mechanism, which it is for the people of system. “If I defend the system, I don’t need to examine it, which would make me uncomfortable.” I hate to say this but at some deep level, they don’t want to change, and therefore, change is bad. So you must also be afraid of change.

The change we were afraid of was SPECIFICALLY that we were afraid of women and people of color taking over our field and doing better than us. Since three of the people in the group were and remain women, I have no clue what that was supposed to mean. Also whether I’m another race or not seems to depend on the department of the government and, oh, yeah my political beliefs. (That multi-racial whiteness, ya know?) I couldn’t figure out what they were talking about. Continue reading (it's long but it's good)...https://accordingtohoyt.com/2021/02/18/people-of-the-system/

Quote of the Day
Machiavelli talks about the same thing with regards to the Gentry in the Discourses. He states that the Gentry do not belong in any functional society. He states several times through out the book the Gentry must be slaughtered in order to restore a functional society. kurt9 writing in the comments section @ vovpopoli


One month
One month of the Biden presidency is in the books. Let’s take a look at the state of our union:

In all, he has signed more than 50 orders and actions. 20 of them have been direct reversals of Trump policies.

Ten of them were related to immigration. Eight of those ten were reversals of previous Trump orders. He reinstated “Operation Choke Point,” which is designed to cut Republicans and the businesses that support them from society.

End Blasphemy End SatanismStop Satanism • Blaspheme Never Again !

The First Amendment protects against the infringement of religion and in so doing, it protects religion itself from blasphemers, heretics, iconoclasts, and apostates.

Satanism is NOT a legitimate religion and does not deserve any protections under the First Amendment.

Satanism exists solely as a repudiation of another religion, Christianity. Satan is NOT a god. He's a flunky. Any worship of Satan is merely a rude gesture AGAINST the God of Christianity. The entire act of worship in Satanism IS flinging an insult at the God of Christianity. As such, it is not the practice of a religion, but rather the practice of an insult.

Neurolinguistic Programming

You may already know that NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The name is derived from three components that most affect our human experience: our neurology, our language, and our programming, or the way in which we have learned to model the world around us. The development of NLP began in the 1970s in California, by Richard Bandler and John Grinder as an innovative approach to psychotherapy, communication, and personal development.

NLP studies the methods, validity and scope involved in what it means to be human on many different levels and dimensions. It focuses on fostering competence and flexibility of behavior, and involves analytical and strategic thought to understand what mental processes are behind human behavior.
