A Race to the Bottom

As the Government shutdown continues to drag on one thing seems apparent: those opposing the wall are hoping their constituents aren’t paying attention or just don’t care.  Consider a few of the facts presented by President Trump in a letter President Trump sent to Congress earlier this month:

  • In fiscal year (FY) 2018, 17,000 adults at the border with existing criminal records were arrested by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and border agents.
  • In FY2017 and FY2018, ICE officers arrested approximately 235,000 aliens on various criminal charges or convictions within the interior of the United States—including roughly 100,000 for assault, 30,000 for sex crimes, and 4,000 for homicides.
  • We are now averaging 60,000 illegal and inadmissible aliens a month on our Southern Border.
  • Last month alone, more than 20,000 minors were smuggled into the United States.
  • The immigration court backlog is nearly 800,000 cases.
  • There has been a 2,000 percent increase in asylum claims over the last five years, with the largest growth coming from Central America—while around 9 in 10 claims from Central American migrants are ultimately rejected by the immigration courts, the applicant has long since been released into the interior of the United States.
  • In FY2017, roughly 135,000 illegal and inadmissible family units arrived from Central America. Of those, less than 2 percent have been successfully removed from the country due to a shortage of resources and glaring loopholes in our federal laws.
  • So far in FY2019, we have seen a 280 percent increase in family units from FY2018.
  • 300 Americans are killed every week from heroin—90 percent of which floods across our Southern Border.
  • Illegal immigration is a humanitarian crisis: 1 in 3 migrant women is sexually assaulted on the journey northward to the U.S. border; 50 illegal migrants a day are referred for emergency medical care; and CBP rescues 4,300 people a year who are in danger and distress.

That is an airtight case that there is a problem at the border and that a wall is one of many things that needs to be done to help curb the problem.  Then consider that through restructuring NAFTA we are saving billions of dollars (Mexico indirectly paying), or consider the staggering amounts of wasteful government spending that occurs on a daily basis.  Or how about the amount of money we spend on foreign wars that we shouldn’t even be a part of?  Or this; Rand Paul recently tweeted that we give foreign aid to China and borrow money from them to pay them back…

The point being that we waste so much money on so much crap that even if the wall was a complete waste of money, $5.7 billion dollars is less than a drop in the bucket compared to the amount we spend each year and why not give it a shot to see if it does anything?

It gets even worse.  Chuck and Nancy, the two-headed monster that is the mouthpiece of the opposition party, voted for fencing several times, as did then Senators Obama and Clinton.  We even had the money earmarked for it and the fence was simply never built.  So we’re supposed to take Chuck and Nancy on their word that it’s immoral and just bad for *reasons* while they previously voted for it in the past?  And for the cherry on top, why is it okay that we fund a wall in Jordan but cannot do the same for ourselves?  Why is it okay for Israel to have a wall but not for ourselves?  Did you know Chuck Schumer, as well as many other members of Congress have dual citizenship and are Israeli citizens as well?  Why is it okay for them to defend their borders, Chuck, but we aren’t?

It is clear they do not care about Americans and in fact think so little of us that they think we’re stupid enough to listen to them deride the wall without noticing their past track record or their current stances in general.  It is downright insulting and shows the absolute disdain with which they view the American public.

Which leads to the thrust of the idea.  I really believe these people are hoping that they can dumb down the American public faster than they think we can catch onto their lies.  Watch a news broadcast from even 15 years ago compared to today.  You may once in a while actually find a spirited debate where opposing views are actually debated at the same time and both viewpoints being heard.  Take a look at this video of Jared Taylor talking with Donahue about race in America.  This conversation would NEVER occur today.  They would NEVER want you to hear the facts or hear the viewpoint that Jared brings to the table.  No.  Now segments are one-sided and they are so short nothing of substance is ever said before another commercial break or topic change takes place.  The “opponent” in today’s segments are usually controlled opposition (read: approved).  Sometimes someone like Tucker will get someone on where there is genuine pushback but the segments are so short that neither side can really have the time to get their point across and it often ends in a screaming match that Tucker needs to end because they aren’t getting anywhere.

This isn’t a coincidence.  The mainstream media is dumbing down the American public.  They are removing the critical thinking skills that we all once had in much greater abundance.  Couple that with distracting smart phones, shorter video clips, more commercials, and less people reading, and you get a genuinely dumbed down public.  IQ scores are falling worldwide.  Mainstream media will want you to believe that is due to climate change…but it is more likely due to the reasons stated in the Unz article.  Either way, the fact is they really are falling.  People really are getting dumber.  You are not just imagining it.  And Americans are reading less and less every year which cannot help critical thinking skills or holding attention spans.

All of this adds up to people like Chuck and Nancy thinking they can somehow justify their current position on the wall and not think anyone will notice how patently absurd it is.  Or worse, maybe they do know and just don’t think anyone will care.  Entertainment has been the opiate of the masses.  So long as people are comfortable and distracted many simply will not care about a wall or the hypocrisies of these people.  I fear a majority of the population will be in for a rude awakening when civilization as we know it begins to break down because we never addressed these problems and let them fester and metastasize to the point that they become uncontrollable.  Perhaps we have already passed the point of no return.  The trend certainly seems to be pointing that way.  But maybe it has not.  And I’m thankful we have a President who is standing his ground and genuinely fighting to reverse this trend.

This is what your kids are learning in school

More indoctrination in the schools that I’m sure parents have zero idea about.  This is from the heart of the Western suicide movement, the UK.  In this episode, 6-year olds are being taught about gay marriage.  Here, the students are told they are Prince Henry, and they are to write a love letter to their servant, Thomas, about why it would be a “brilliant” idea for Thomas to marry him.  Watch the video for yourself here.

gender1

Most people in this country are of the mindset that anyone can do whatever they want that makes them happy so long as it’s not impinging on the happiness or freedoms of anyone else.  “Do not do to others what you wouldn’t want done to you” is something most people can agree with.  That said, I think most reasonable people would ALSO agree that it’s probably not healthy or normal or right to be indoctrinating kids in this way at such a young age when their minds are so malleable.  Make no mistake that’s what they are doing, indoctrinating these children.  I have no doubt the teacher thinks she is doing admirable, honorable work.  But the reality is what you’re doing is confusing children at a young age about what’s normal.  Yes, normal.  If they really wanted to teach inclusivity you could teach this story without forcing the child to assume the role of a homosexual.  You could just say “some people prefer people of the same sex” and leave it at that.  What they’re doing is deeper and darker.

gender2

If you don’t think they’re trying to indoctrinate the children read the screen captures posted from the video.  No boy or girl uniforms, again along the mindset of gender fluidity and “be whatever you want to be”.  All ages are forced to take part in these lessons.  I just have a hard time believing LGBT lessons are an essential part of a child’s curriculum at that juncture of their life.  Literally anything else from a classical education would be preferable to this.  Though something tells me these kids won’t be taught Shakespeare because he was part of the patriarchy or something.

If you’ve wondered why it feels like the times are more frenzied now, or that people are losing their minds, it’s because it’s true.  The communists took control of our education system a generation or two ago and we’re seeing the fruits of their labor.  College campuses were at the heart of all the social justice warrior nonsense that has sprung up.  It came to a head in 2014 and has only gotten worse now.  You think it’ll stop at LGBT?  Wait until they normalize pedophilia.  If you don’t think they’ll try and teach how it’s okay in some cases for a child to have a sexual relationship with an adult you haven’t been paying attention for the past few years.

 

Julian the trans puppet to the rescue to help kids having gender issues…

In today’s episode of stupid crap Canada is doing I’d like to introduce you to Julian the trans puppet.

transpuppet

Via ctvnews.ca:

MONTREAL — The young school-age puppet named Julia feels in her heart she’s a boy and wants to be called Julian.

Trans advocates say for many very young children and their families, tackling such gender-related questions are real and can be complicated.

Enter Julian, the marionette at the heart of three bilingual videos designed to help provide youngsters and their families with the necessary tools to navigate such questions.

Julian (the puppet goes by Julien in French) is the brainchild of the Jasmin Roy Sophie Desmarais Foundation, a Montreal-based organization dedicated to fighting bullying, which unveiled the free video capsules and educational booklets Wednesday.

The videos, which tackle issues like gender identity, self-expression and acceptance, star Julian and his fellow puppet friends Leo and Annie in addition to a human female character named Alex.

The foundation’s Jasmin Roy said the intended audience is very targeted.

“We need to develop emotional and social skills for educators, parents and other children who are around those children exploring their gender or expression,” Roy said.

“Now, every time you have a child in your community who’s dealing with that reality, you’ll have a tool to help you.”

Where can we draw the line?  Where can we say no and not be called a bigot?  Every single time we extend a hand they want to take the entire arm.  Trans acceptance was never going to be enough.  They were always going to infiltrate the schools and get to our children.

This is a real danger.  This puppet is for little children.  Kids are still trying to figure out who the hell they are and what they want well into puberty and beyond.  I thought I was Indiana Jones when I was a kid, but is it really healthy to have the adults play into the fantasy?  There are already instances of parents losing custody of their children for refusing sex-change surgery.  We’re already at that point where the state can control your children without your permission.  Given the regret that can take place, and the crazy high suicide rates of trans people in general, is this really a road we should be going down in our children’s minds?  There are no doubt cases of children with true gender dysphoria.  But that number is astronomically low.  So low that installing trans puppets into schools to teach children about it will do far more harm than good.

We used to have a thing called common sense that would end crap like this in its tracks.  Today, we live too comfortably, and it gives too much time for people to take up causes that are entirely unnecessary and downright dangerous.  More on this in a post coming soon on the perils of Pax Americana.  The more I hear about what children are being subjected to in schools these days, the more tempting home schooling sounds.  It is undeniable your children are being programmed and indoctrinated in our education system.  They have our kids from kindergarten through college to program their minds however they want.

If you want to go further down the rabbit hole of what’s being programmed into our children, check out the video below on the Elsagate controversy or the f’ed up “children” shows they allow on YouTube.  Here’s a blurb from Wikipedia on Elsagate.

Elsagate is a neologism referring to the controversy surrounding supposedly child-friendly videos on YouTube and YouTube Kids which contain themes that are inappropriate for children. Most videos under this classification are notable for presenting content such as violence, sexual situations, fetishes, drugs, alcohol, toilet humor, and dangerous or upsetting situations and activities.[1]

The videos often feature popular characters from family-oriented media, sometimes via crossovers, used without legal permission; the term itself is composed of Elsa (a character from the 2013 Disney animated film Frozen, who is frequently depicted in such videos) and -gate (a suffix for scandals).[1] However, the Elsagate controversy has also included channels such as Toy Freaks that do not feature child/family-friendly characters but real children, and have raised concern about possible child abuse.

Most videos in this category are either live action films or crude digital animations, although a few channels have been using more elaborate techniques such as clay animation.[2] Despite YouTube’s age restriction policies, these videos are sometimes tagged in such a way to circumvent the inbuilt child safety algorithms, even making their way into YouTube Kids, and are thus difficult to moderate due to the large scale of the platform.[3] In order to capture search results and attract attention from users, their titles and descriptions feature names of famous characters, as well as keywords like “education”, “learn colors”, “nursery rhymes”, etc.[4][5] They also include automatically placed ads, making them lucrative to their owners and to YouTube. Despite the objectionable and often confusing nature of these videos, many attract millions of views.[4]

While criticism of the channels themselves has existed since at least 2016, public awareness of the phenomenon grew in 2017, as it became part of a broader controversy about child safety on YouTube. That year, after reports by several media outlets, YouTube adopted stricter guidelines regarding children’s content. In late November, the company started to mass delete channels and videos falling into the Elsagate category, as well as large amounts of other inappropriate videos or user’s comments relating to children.[6]

Pirates of the Caribbean II: Welcome to Venezuela

Lawlessness abounds in socialist nations.  I don’t think bringing back piracy to the Caribbean was what they had in mind.  The Washington Post actually does a pretty good exposé on this.

There have been reports of piracy over the past 18 months near Honduras, Nicaragua, Haiti and St. Lucia. But nowhere has the surge been more notable, analysts say, than off the coast of Venezuela.

An economic crisis in the South American country has sent inflation soaring toward 1 million percent, making food and medicine scarce. Malnutrition is spreading; disease is rampant; water and power grids are failing from a lack of trained staff and spare parts. Police and military are abandoning their posts as their paychecks become nearly worthless. Under the socialist government of President Nicolás Maduro, repression and corruption have increased.

The conditions are compelling some Venezuelans to take desperate action.

One Venezuelan port official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to address official corruption, said that Venezuelan coast guard officers have been boarding anchored vessels and demanding money and food. He said commercial ships, in response, are increasingly anchoring farther off the coast, and turning off their motors and lights to avoid being seen at night.

It’s important to remember that this could happen to us.  Socialism is often times a slow creep.  It’s part of the reason there was such a huge outcry to Obamacare.  In the United States, health care is about 20% of the gross domestic product.  Thankfully, we’ve elected a President who recognizes this disaster and has tried to dismember it, or encourage Congress to do so.

Venezuela turned to socialism in 1998 with the election of Hugo Chavez.  He redistributed land to the poor and in 2007 took over many of the major oil projects.  Oil is half of the country’s GDP and accounts for nearly 100% of its exports.  Price control, a heavily government controlled economy, and plummeting oil prices have wrecked what should be a prosperous nation.  Venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world.  There is no reason they should be floundering this badly, or having to cross into Colombia to buy simple necessities such as toilet paper and milk.

Forbes.com has a nice little slideshow here which highlights many other countries that have tried socialism and failed.  The dumbing down of the populace is one of the greatest injustices we have ever seen.  There should be absolutely no reason socialism and communism are as popular as they are, especially among millennials.  Via The Washington Times:

The majority of millennials would prefer to live in a socialist, communist or fascist nation rather than a capitalistic one, according to a new poll.

In the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation’s “Annual Report on U.S. Attitudes Toward Socialism,” 58 percent of the up-and-coming generation opted for one of the three systems, compared to 42 percent who said they were in favor of capitalism.

The most popular socioeconomic order was socialism, with 44 percent support. Communism and fascism received 7 percent support each.

Let that sink in.  This falls directly on us and our educational system.  This isn’t altogether surprising as the vast majority of academia consists of far left professors and administrators.  While immigration is our most glaring problem right now, reforming the education system is just as important though a much longer process.

Let us not forget the horrors of socialism.  Nationalizing major industries and redistributing wealth always leads to disaster.  The faster we can leave industry to the free markets and disband welfare and other government programs that force redistribution of wealth the safer and better off we will be.

Out In the Open

Perhaps one of the biggest revelations over the past 2+ years that hasn’t been talked about too much is the very fact that whatever you want to call them, The Deep State, the Cabal, etc etc are out in the open.  Five years ago you’d be laughed out of the room and called a tin foil hat conspiracy theorist for even mentioning anything remotely different than the official narrative.  Now, a lot of people trust Alex Jones more than the MSM.  Rightfully so.  And you are no longer laughed at given how many things have been confirmed.

This is honestly probably the biggest problem the Deep State has.  It’s no longer a very tiny fringe minority of people who believe there are un-elected forces running the country and the world.  And now that they’ve been largely exposed, it’s impossible to shut the lid on this ever again.

This obviously isn’t some great revelation but the Internet has changed everything.  It’s weened people off mainstream media to get news.  It’s awakened a ton of people to untold truths and given an outlet for people to vent, share information, and red pill normies.  Now, a majority of Russians think a secret global government exists.  Populist movements are on the rise.  And with more exposure comes more boldness.  Previously untouchable people are being outed for their heinous crimes.  Harvey Weinstein and the whole #metoo movement stuff never would’ve happened five years ago.  It couldn’t.  And that is very much only the tip of the iceberg, and rated G compared to other shit going on there.

Defending our way of life is no easy task, and not for everybody.  It is the most noble effort you can embark on.  There are true patriots in the anon movement, on the chans, doing the ridiculous amount of grunt work and digging to unearth all of this information.  It’s just as important to share it.  Do not assume that because you’ve read it on your site(s) of choice that there’s no point in re-sharing it.  It’s part of the reason this website exists.  Your sphere of influence is different than everyone else’s, and you can get entirely different swaths of normies to wake up to what’s going on behind the scenes.

If you’re looking to dive in, or dip a toe, r/greatawakening isn’t a terrible place to start.  Voat.co is another.  Just be warned.  You can venture down a dark rabbit hole.  One that many are afraid to confront.  But turning away would be worse.  The Deep State is out in the open now, and they will fight literally to the death to try and keep their secrets hidden.  They control everything.  Hollywood is but one of the many industries they control.  The disgusting stuff they do to keep people in line and obedient is abhorrent.  They know that they would be finished if the normal populace ever discovered what they were doing.

 

Elon Musk pulled his kids out of school…and made his own for them

Elon Musk is a polarizing figure.  I happen to be Team Elon.  His vision and drive are seemingly unparalleled these days in a time where we’ve forgotten to think BIG.  Our education system is broken and is churning out obedient little Marxists to be the obedient proletariat when they grow up.  Mr Musk realizes the school system is pure trash and started his own school for his kids.  Per Ars Tecnica:

Ad Astra encompasses students, not employees. For the past four years, this experimental non-profit school has been quietly educating Musk’s sons, the children of select SpaceX employees, and a few high-achievers from nearby Los Angeles. It started back in 2014, when Musk pulled his five young sons out of one of Los Angeles’ most prestigious private schools for gifted children. Hiring one of his sons’ teachers, the CEO founded Ad Astra to “exceed traditional school metrics on all relevant subject matter through unique project-based learning experiences,” according to a previously unreported document filed with the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

“I just didn’t see that the regular schools were doing the things that I thought should be done,” he told a Chinese TV station in 2015. “So I thought, well let’s see what we can do. Maybe creating a school will be better.”

The details of the curriculum are a bit guarded but it sounds like there is a heavy emphasis on STEM subjects, but they do not teach things like music or language.  Something tells me that this school is probably halfway in between an ideal education and the drivel we’re presented today in our public schools.

Kids should be well rounded.  Reverting to a more “classic” education program, where literary classics are taught rather than censored, perhaps even where Latin is still taught, and an emphasis on history and critical thinking, even when it’s against one’s beliefs, would be ideal.  With a heavy emphasis on STEM too, of course.  Some of the aspects of this school are worrying, like allowing kids to drop classes they don’t like (up to a point) and not teaching things like music and language.  But I’m sure this school is still light years ahead and far more beneficial than the public offerings.  Something else that piqued my interest:

A non-discrimination policy quietly published in the Los Angeles Times in 2016 stated that Ad Astra does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin, but the document made no mention of disabilities.

Hopefully the school does discriminate based on intelligence.  There need to be schools for the gifted children that show potential in fields that will greatly benefit humanity.  It’s been mentioned many times before, most notably in The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life, but we’ve for too long placed emphasis on bringing up the “stragglers” at the low end of the intelligence spectrum.  There is a lot of data and speculation that argues that this has hurt the upper echelon of students at the very high end of the intelligence spectrum due to neglect and resources steered towards the lower end of the bell curve.  And this damage hurts society the most, as these kids are the ones who will shape future generations and make improvements and ultimately contribute the most in areas where high intelligence is required to do great things.

Regardless, I applaud Mr Musk for doing this.  More parents should seriously consider homeschooling and removing their kids from the clutches of the Marxists who want to indoctrinate them for life.

Teacher forced to resign for refusing to abide by the SJW transgender narrative

An Indiana teacher was forced to resign because he wouldn’t call students whatever gender pronouns they were feeling that day.  He committed the crime of respecting biology.  Via the Federalist:

Local public officials have so far refused to publicly discuss the policies they put into place at the beginning of 2018 that John Kluge says led to his resignation in May. Brownsburg Community School Corporation, the district that employed Kluge, put out a transgender policy document in January instructing staff to call students by their chosen names and pronouns once they are so designated on school records. Kluge opted instead to address students by their last names to avoid either referring to his apparently several transgender students with pronouns and names of the opposite sex, or offending them by not doing as they wished despite its contradiction of reality.

That wasn’t good enough. At the school board meeting, students accused Kluge of saying that transgender persons “are not an actual human being” and “actively disrespect[ing]” them for not using opposite-sex pronouns to describe them.

“Mr. Kluge’s religious beliefs have absolutely no place in a public high school. I think what he believes is morally just conflicts with what not only I believe, [but] what my parents believe, what my psychiatrist, therapist and doctor believe and the school board believe are morally just,” said student Aidyn Sucec. Kluge’s beliefs are not merely moral, but also scientific. Scientifically, there are only two sexes. “Gender” is a linguistic term for a non-physical concept.

Everyone should respect the wishes of this student.  Her (his?) beliefs supersede that of Mr Kluge’s, clearly.  I mean, c’mon.  Even her psychiatrist thinks so!

As I’ve said before, these people are sick and deserve our compassion and help.  One way to help them is to not indulge in their fantasies.  We are told to respect them for who they are, but they don’t even respect themselves for who they were.  But it all makes total sense in this SJW infested world.

If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend Vox Day’s SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police and the sequel SJWs Always Double Down: Anticipating the Thought Police (The Laws of Social Justice), both of which add so much incite into how these things happen.  Part of the grand globalist strategy is to infiltrate our education system and infect our kids with 12+ years of indoctrination into their sick ideas and beliefs.  This case is a prime example.  Notice how the parents of children at this school reacted when they discovered this transgender policy was very quietly put in in the first place:

Parents Flood Board Meeting: ‘Why Weren’t We Notified?’

The school district’s policy document says students may change their sex designation and name on school records with parental permission and “a letter from a health care professional.” It also says teachers and staff who refer to such children with the pronouns and name that correspond to their biological sex will be liable for unspecified professional consequences if the teacher did so on purpose or  more than once.

“lt is the employee’s professional responsibility to follow the expectations and guidelines” of the school district, the document says several times. ” lt is our expectation that teachers use the pronoun associated with the gender as it appears in PowerSchool. lf they/them is requested, we expect that pronoun to be used as well,”  the document says.”

More than 200 parents flooded the local school board meeting Monday at which Kluge was allowed the usual two minutes to plead his case. “Many of the parents at Monday night’s meeting said they were unaware that this accommodation was in place for transgender students and are uncomfortable with its implications for their children,” reported the Indianapolis Star. “Landon Chapman said he’s not comfortable with students who were born male being able to use the same female restroom as his daughter. ‘Why is it that parents weren’t notified?’ he asked the board.”

During the two-hour public comment period, school board members merely thanked people for their comments and refused to talk about the district’s pro-transgender policies, which include allowing students to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex. The district’s policy document says their policies are a direct result of court decisions and federal regulations.

Yet courts have so far handed down mixed decisions on transgender students and the Trump administration rescinded the Obama administration’s push for transgender preferences in public schools. Most courts forcing transgender policies on schools are reinterpreting the word “sex” inside the federal Title IX law to mean “self-description of gender” instead, despite the lack of precedent or sense for doing so.

This is how it happens.  They creep in slowly and quietly and it’s a gradual takeover.  As with the parents above, once this was made public there was an outcry.  This is why we need to constantly out this crap and make it known for all to see.
