Beethoven: 9th Symphony, 4th Movement

One of the most famous pieces of music of all time; perhaps the crowning achievement of all music and a crown jewel of Western culture.  I am easily moved to tears every time I listen to it.  Check out this version, sung by 10,000 Japanese after the 2011 earthquake that rocked their nation.  The Japanese are a strong, proud, resilient people.  One of my favorite versions.

O Freunde, nicht diese Töne!
Sondern laßt uns angenehmere anstimmen,
und freudenvollere.

Oh friends, not these sounds!
Let us instead strike up more pleasing
and more joyful ones!

Freude!
Freude!

Joy!
Joy!

Freude, schöner Götterfunken
Tochter aus Elysium,
Wir betreten feuertrunken,
Himmlische, dein Heiligtum!
Deine Zauber binden wieder
Was die Mode streng geteilt;
Alle Menschen werden Brüder,
Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

Joy, beautiful spark of divinity,
Daughter from Elysium,
We enter, burning with fervour,
heavenly being, your sanctuary!
Your magic brings together
what custom has sternly divided.
All men shall become brothers,
wherever your gentle wings hover.

Wem der große Wurf gelungen,
Eines Freundes Freund zu sein;
Wer ein holdes Weib errungen,
Mische seinen Jubel ein!
Ja, wer auch nur eine Seele
Sein nennt auf dem Erdenrund!
Und wer’s nie gekonnt, der stehle
Weinend sich aus diesem Bund!

Whoever has been lucky enough
to become a friend to a friend,
Whoever has found a beloved wife,
let him join our songs of praise!
Yes, and anyone who can call one soul
his own on this earth!
Any who cannot, let them slink away
from this gathering in tears!

Freude trinken alle Wesen
An den Brüsten der Natur;
Alle Guten, alle Bösen
Folgen ihrer Rosenspur.
Küsse gab sie uns und Reben,
Einen Freund, geprüft im Tod;
Wollust ward dem Wurm gegeben,
Und der Cherub steht vor Gott.

Every creature drinks in joy
at nature’s breast;
Good and Evil alike
follow her trail of roses.
She gives us kisses and wine,
a true friend, even in death;
Even the worm was given desire,
and the cherub stands before God.

Froh, wie seine Sonnen fliegen
Durch des Himmels prächt’gen Plan,
Laufet, Brüder, eure Bahn,
Freudig, wie ein Held zum Siegen.

Gladly, just as His suns hurtle
through the glorious universe,
So you, brothers, should run your course,
joyfully, like a conquering hero.

Seid umschlungen, Millionen!
Diesen Kuß der ganzen Welt!
Brüder, über’m Sternenzelt
Muß ein lieber Vater wohnen.

Ihr stürzt nieder, Millionen?
Ahnest du den Schöpfer, Welt?
Such’ ihn über’m Sternenzelt!
Über Sternen muß er wohnen.

Be embraced, you millions!
This kiss is for the whole world!
Brothers, above the canopy of stars
must dwell a loving father.

Do you bow down before Him, you millions?
Do you sense your Creator, O world?
Seek Him above the canopy of stars!
He must dwell beyond the stars.

Girls can now join…Boy Scouts Program (now called Scouts BSA)

Via Breitbart:

A longtime American tradition ended Friday as the Boy Scouts of America officially changed its name to Scouts BSA. Now, girls ages 11 through 17 may join and participate in programs, including earning the Eagle Scout rank.

“For the first time in its 100+ year history, the iconic program of the Boy Scouts of America is open to both young men and young women,” the website states with a photo of girls accompanying the text.

“Scouts BSA is a year-round program for boys and girls in fifth grade through high school that provides fun, adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility to help them become the best version of themselves,” the website reads.

The continued attack of our nation’s institutions from the SJWs plods on.  This Breitbart commentator put it nicely:

BSAComment

A lot of people will say that is nonsense.  But no, it is not.  This is what they do.  Chip away, chip away, chip away until they have everything and control everything so they can teach what they want and indoctrinate with their poison.  The Boy Scouts caved to pressure and allowed gay members in 2013 and gay leaders in 2015.  2017 opened it up to transgenders.  And 2019 is full-fledged female participation as well.  And on some level this has nothing to do with gays or transgenders or girls.  This isn’t an attack on them.  It is an attack on the BSA for caving to pressure because of identity politics.  And if I were a gambling man I would say the next thing they attack is the scout oath and scout law, which both allude to a duty to God.  Because, you know, this is alienating the atheists.  We cannot risk offending anybody!

Scout Oath
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Scout Law

The Scout Law has 12 points. Each is a goal for every Scout. A Scout tries to live up to the Law every day. It is not always easy to do, but a Scout always tries.

A Scout is:

TRUSTWORTHY. Tell the truth and keep promises. People can depend on you.

LOYAL. Show that you care about your family, friends, Scout leaders, school, and country.

HELPFUL. Volunteer to help others without expecting a reward.

FRIENDLY. Be a friend to everyone, even people who are very different from you.

COURTEOUS. Be polite to everyone and always use good manners.

KIND. Treat others as you want to be treated . Never harm or kill any living thing without good reason.

OBEDIENT. Follow the rules of your family, school, and pack. Obey the laws of your community and country.

CHEERFUL. Look for the bright side of life. Cheerfully do tasks that come your way. Try to help others be happy.

THRIFTY. Work to pay your own way. Try not to be wasteful. Use time, food, supplies, and natural resources wisely.

BRAVE. Face difficult situations even when you feel afraid. Do what you think is right despite what others might be doing or saying.

CLEAN. Keep your body and mind fit . Help keep your home and community clean.

REVERENT. Be reverent toward God. Be faithful in your religious duties. Respect the beliefs of others.

As with all institutions that kowtow to identity politics, this will likely kill off the institution once and for all.  And given the extent of the metastases I say good riddance at this point.  It is sad it had to come to this.

They are already dealing with a bunch of sexual abuse lawsuits.  I cannot see the number of sexual lawsuits getting any smaller given the demographic of the group now.

The Girl Scouts are rightly disgruntled about this and have sued.  Both institutions are probably done now.  And whether you care about these institutions or not you should still care about how they’re being infested and ruined.  This is how they operate.  They infest.  They are cancer.  They have done it to the Boy Scouts, our schools, and our churches.  Most people will think it is harmless: what does it matter if they allow <insert group here> into <insert institution here>.  You think it stops there?  No.  They take control and then push an agenda that aligns with their ideology.  Much like what is happening now with huge groups of immigrants coming in.  You think they won’t push their own policies when they elect their own people into office?  Of course not.

Forever Victims

An opinion piece from AZCentral:

A few weeks ago, I attended a holiday party at a downtown Phoenix restaurant. I walked around to view the photographs on the wall.

Then a photograph caught my attention.

Friends said, “It’s coal miners at a pub after work.” It was a photograph of coal miners with blackened faces. I asked a Latinx and white woman for their opinion. They said it looked like coal miners at a pub after work. Then they stepped back, frowned and said it’s men in blackface.

I asked the waitress to speak with a manager. Instead, I spoke with a white restaurant owner. I explained to him why the photograph was offensive. Evidently, someone else had made a similar comment about the photograph before.

Yet, the photograph remained on the wall. He said he would talk to the other owners and get back to me. While leaving, I asked him had he spoke with the other owners. He had not spoken with them, but mentioned Google said it’s coal miners after work.

In art, everyone sees something different

Who determines what’s offensive?

For me, the coal miners disappeared and a film honored for its artistic merit, despite being the most racist propaganda films ever, D.W. Griffith’s “Birth of a Nation” (1915) surfaces, in which white actors appeared in blackface. The white owner saw coal miners in the photograph. Therefore, it was not offensive.

And a little further down:

Viewers cannot determine the intention of an artist’s work. Art also exposes society’s blind spots. Blackface is only a glimpse of a larger issue. The larger issue is the lack of representation of marginalized people and their voices in Phoenix.

Frequently, I enter art galleries and I am not represented in the art, which leads to uneducated curation for exhibitions. While shopping I am ignored because it is assumed I unable to purchase anything, or I am followed by a security guard because it is assumed that I am a threat to the store.

Each assumption is based on a stereotype. Blackface caricatures stereotypes of black people.

At the downtown Phoenix restaurant, my concern that the photograph of men in blackface was a threat to me and my face and voice were ignored.

A business’ photograph of men with blackened faces culturally says to me, “Whites Only.” It says people like me are not welcome.

Here is the photograph in question.

coalminers

Coal miners enjoying a beer after work: RACIST!!!

It really is quite sad.  I could not possibly live my life acting like a victim for every single thing I perceive as some kind of assault to my existence.  Newsflash, Rashaad, it is not all about you.  I’m sorry (no) that you aren’t represented in the art at the art gallery you went to.  Similarly, white people don’t sit around all day wondering how we can offend and marginalize black people.  We honestly don’t care that much about you.  Most of us just want to live our lives and be left alone.  You should do the same.

Perpetual victimhood is almost like a disease.  It is the ressentiment that Nietzsche frequently wrote about.  And it is the kind of internal negativity that can destroy a person.  Who wants to live their life as a victim anyways?  Why would you want to give anyone that much control over how you feel and act?  Stop being so pathetically weak and whiny.

Lastly, Rashaad, the world you are asking for would be a totalitarian shithole.  You could not possibly put out any art if the deciding factor was whether it offended someone or not.  That is completely insane.

Duke professor steps down after suggesting students should speak English on campus

Diversity is our strength.  Diversity is our strength.  Diversity is our strength.  Tell yourself this mantra day and night for the next year.  It will totally make it true.  Via Inside Higher Ed:

Duke University asked a professor to step down from her administrative role after she sent an email to students advising them not to speak Chinese in the medical school building and suggesting that failure to speak in English in nonclassroom settings could make it harder for them to get jobs and internships and secure research opportunities with faculty.

Megan Neely, an assistant professor and director of graduate studies for a master’s program in biostatistics, sent an email Friday to first- and second-year students in the program warning them of what she wrote were complaints from two other unnamed professors about students speaking in Chinese in the student lounge and study areas.

“Hi All,” Neely wrote. “I had two separate faculty members come to my office today and ask if I had pictures of the [master’s in biostatistics] students. I shared with them the head shots of the first- and second-year cohorts taken during orientation. Both faculty members picked out a small group of first-year students who they observed speaking Chinese (in their words, VERY LOUDLY) in the student lounge/study areas. I asked why they were curious about the students’ names. Both faculty members replied that they wanted to write down the names so they could remember them if the students ever interviewed for an internship or asked to work with them for a master’s project. They were disappointed that these students were not taking the opportunity to improve their English and were being so impolite as to have a conversation that not everyone on the floor could understand.” (Emphasis per original email.)

Neely’s email continued, “To international students, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep these unintended consequences in mind when you choose to speak in Chinese in the building. I have no idea how hard it has been and still is for you to come to the U.S. and have to learn in a non-native language. As such, I have the upmost respect for what you are doing. That being said, I encourage you to commit to using English 100 percent of the time when you are in Hock or any other professional setting.”

And the reaction from the Asian Students Association:

“This behavior is not only hypocritical — given Duke’s dependence on international students and faculty for their undergraduate and graduate programs, desire to present itself as a ‘global university’, and partnership with Duke Kunshan University — but also discriminatory,” the Asian Students Association at Duke and the Duke International Association said in a joint statement about the emails on Facebook. Duke Kunshan is a reference to Duke’s branch campus in China.

Inevitable in 2019 in America.  Everyone is a victim and there is no common language or culture or shared values.  This is what happens when you import all that multiculturalism has to offer.

To recap: professor is told by other professors that some students were speaking obnoxiously loud in another language.  Professor, looking out for the students, mind you, suggests that they should take advantage of the opportunity to practice their English skills while on campus, which may even help them get research opportunities.  Reaction: outrage and she has to step down.

A few things.  This wouldn’t be an issue in a predominantly homogeneous society.  A country with 90%+ of people of the same nationality, with the same culture, the same language, the same beliefs, makes things a lot easier and run a lot smoother.  That ship has clearly sailed for the United States in its current form.  As mentioned yesterday, it should always behoove the guests of a country to respect the laws and the customs of the host country.  Expressing outrage, at a SUGGESTION, is not respecting the host country.  Though we are seeing this increasingly more and more from visitors.  As if it needed to be said again, apologizing to the outrage mob will never absolve you in their eyes.  It will only show weakness and they will continue to pounce until you are out.

College campuses have been the breeding ground for this type of behavior since at least the 1960s.  It will only get worse.  With the current trajectories there will be a time in the not so distant future where students demand signs and translators in English, Spanish, Chinese, and who knows what else.  This is what happens when you do not encourage assimilation.  Every tribe of people will bring THEIR same customs and cultures and languages to America and not bother learning OUR customs, our culture, our language.  Remind me again, who wants this?

Porn is degenerate: bad for you, and destroys society

It has been written about many times before but it always deserves a revisit or refresher; watching copious amounts of porn is terrible for you.  And as we have seen with many other topics of late, whether it is the mainstream media, the pharmaceutical industry, or Google and YouTube censoring search results and/or promoting certain websites over others, there’s probably a much darker side to it as well, which is really more what I’m interested in with this post.

But it would be foolish not to reiterate the former point too.  Watching porn on a regular basis is not healthy.  It can lead to a loss of libido and the ability to get and maintain an erection.  Repeated dopamine hits reduces the stimulation and can lead to needing to find more and more, kinkier and kinkier videos to keep the sensation up.  It is probably a similar feeling to drug addicts chasing that first high.

But is there really more to this?  Is there really anything more dark or sinister going on or any worse than just a few teenagers not being able to perform?  Knowing what we know about how the likes of Facebook, Google, YouTube, Apple, etc censor what we see or skew search results to drive certain narratives, would it really be that surprising if the same were happening with porn as well?  I don’t think many people realize the level of programming that goes on in this country.  The subliminal messages in every commercial (or really shitty attempts at it, Gillette).  We have targeted ads thrown at us in our social media and email accounts.  A constant bombardment of sensory input, much of it with a very specific goal or idea in mind.

Back to the porn.  Pornhub is one of, if not the biggest, porn sites on the internet.  In 2018 they had over 33.5 billion visits.  Billion.  With a B.  And this was a 5 billion visit increase from 2017…not a trivial amount.  Which probably points to a more worrying trend in that the amount of porn being watched is probably going up, not going down.  Pornhub has a section called “Insights” and it is part of a very detailed report they have put out for the past 6 or so years.  It offers details on search trends, broken down by category and country, average visit times, and much more.  As mentioned before, porn destroys not only the individual man but society on the whole as well.  An increase towards more porn being watched, if current trends continue, does not bode well for society.  Birth rates are already at a 30-year low.  Testosterone levels are dropping.  Porn may be causally linked to both of these.  Even if it is not it does not portend good things in the long term.

But is it even worse than that?  Porn is already a cheap dopamine hit to the system…a superficial payoff with none of the work or buildup required.  Generally speaking the more porn one watches, the more desensitized they get to it as well.  Which requires watching more porn, or perhaps kinkier porn.  Might this also be an area one could control one’s thoughts and habits and desires?  Let’s take a look at some of the most common porn search terms on Pornhub through the years, starting with 2013.

pornhub-top-searches-worldwide-2013a.png

For all intents and purposes that looks like a pretty normal set of search terms.  Something is noticeably different starting in 2014…

pornhub-2014-top-searches-world

Something you’ll notice with a lot of these searches throughout the years is they have a partially cultural input to them.  Other terms really get you wondering psychologically.    But the whole, mom, step mom, step sister thing is bad.  Incest porn is not healthy.  There is no place for it in society.  Whether or not it’s free or legal to do it or post videos on it doesn’t mean we should.  I was thinking perhaps it was caused by Game of Thrones and the incest subplot going on in there.  You’ll see in the later years video games often drive top results too.  Or the fact that Stormy Daniels was the most searched for porn star in 2018.  This incest trend continues all the way through 2018.

2-pornhub-insights-2016-year-review-top-search-terms.png

Incest porn, or “taboo” as they sometimes call it, continued to surge in 2016 taking 3 of the top 6 spots overall.  Notice overwatch jumping up there.  Every year there’s a porn star or genre that surges because of current events or currently hot games or TV shows.  Most die out after a year or two.  The incest thing keeps chugging along though.  2017…

1-pornhub-insights-2017-year-review-most-searched-terms-world.png

Incest continued to keep 3 of the top 6 slots in 2017.  There is a bit of an anomaly in 2018 but it is mostly consistent…

1-pornhub-insights-2018-year-review-most-searched-terms-2018.png

This one is a bit stranger.  Mom and step mom are still top 10 but step sister disappears completely.  Note that in all previous years that nothing in the top 10 ever drops so utterly off the map that you don’t see it in the next year.  It is only ever one of the lower genres that gets knocked off by the game of the moment (fortnight) or something along those lines.  It doesn’t really add up.

Maybe something else is at play.  Maybe the search result really is just going down.  Though I find that hard to believe when I click on “This week’s most viewed porn videos in US” and literally the first video is entitled: “Bratty Sis – Cock teasing StepSis Gets P**** Creamed S7:E6”.  Yeah it’s old-fashioned but I put the asterisks there.  Three of the top six most viewed are incest related, the other two being step mom/son fantasies.

This is not normal.  This is not healthy.  I don’t care if it’s technically legal to show this stuff.  It is not healthy for the individual or for society at large.  In 2019, would you really be so flabbergasted or shocked to learn that maybe they’re also trying to brainwash you with all the porn you’re watching?  And who knows for what twisted, perverted, fucked up purpose.  Encouraging incest IS NOT GOOD.  You can say that people can tell the difference, or that it would never lead anywhere, but are you really so sure of that?  Imagine planting that little seed into someone’s head every day that maybe it’s okay.  Oh, it’s just a step sibling, not blood related.  Oh, it’s just fantasy.  Is it really so far fetched to see that maybe some people would take that as enough of a cue to rationalize it being okay?  Where do we end up long term if that seed ever takes root?

These people are trying to destroy the nuclear family.  They are trying to introduce degeneracy and destruction into your lives.  These are dark, sick, twisted people.  If you haven’t already, take a look at the work that Jamie Dlux is doing reporting on the absolute abhorrent stuff coming out of Hollywood.  It’s not like the porn industry is any cleaner.  Suffice to say I’m a little suspicious with the amount of twisted incest porn and interracial sex videos posted (especially when the latter is a search term that is never in the top searches yet these videos seem to be pushed incessantly hard).  At the very least, consider the possibility that maybe there’s more going on here than just an innocent fap.

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…

screen shot 2019-01-12 at 8.54.58 am

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.

The truth and free speech censorship

We discuss the importance of free speech a lot here.  There is a reason it was the first amendment ratified.  There has been a renewed effort to police, patrol, and prohibit free speech on the internet especially within the past few years.  It is something most people take for granted, as if there was no possible way that it could be taken away.

It should give one pause when specific topics or people are verboten to public discourse.  It is often said that “hate speech”, or the speech one disagrees with the most, needs to be vigorously protected the most in these battles.  And that is largely true.  Everyone should be open to the idea of seeing alternative viewpoints and hearing arguments s/he may have never considered before.  Those that think they are doing some greater good (or those using these idealistic people as puppets to further their nefarious agendas) by censoring speech cannot possibly know what is “good” for someone or what should or should not be read.  One’s opinions and ideas should speak for themselves and be subject to scrutiny.  If the idea is founded on truth it should stand up to the weight of critique.

There can be a variety of reasons why one may want to censor particular topics or speech outright.  The type of free speech censorship I want to talk about does not include obvious restrictions that should be put on children.  There are many topics that children should only learn about once they are of appropriate age.

Your “spidey-sense” should go off when certain topics are restricted or punishable by law if they are discussed.  It should raise one’s eyebrows when certain individuals or news outlets are banned or deplatformed en masse by the powers that be.

Ask yourself this: why would a specific topic or event be against the law if spoken out against?  The most obvious example of this is Holocaust denial, which is against the law in 17 countries.  You can literally go to jail if you deny the Holocaust.  Why?  The truth never needs to be covered up.  It can speak for itself.  YouTube has been particularly stringent on banning videos that question the exact details of the Holocaust as of late.  The Greatest Story Never Told used to be available on YouTube in its full form as well as partitioned out.  This is a movie about the life of Adolf Hitler and questions some of the events and the subsequent narrative of World War II and the Holocaust.  Nearly all of those videos have been removed.  Why?  Again, whether you agree or disagree with any of these topics we should all realize they should still be allowed to be shared and viewed.  Stupid ideas, ideas that are patently false, should be available for scrutiny.  They will make themselves look like jackasses if what they are saying is patently false.  That movie in particular does raise some very interesting questions and presents some compelling evidence that the official narrative may not be as true as we’re told (if at all).  It is not the responsibility of YouTube or the government to decide what is and is not the truth or what is best for us.  This level of censorship is on par with totalitarian regimes.  Do we really want to go down this road?

I did a cursory search this past week of many conspiracy theories that one hears about.  You used to be able to find countless videos on all of these topics.  Videos about Holocaust denial, Sandy Hook, Vegas, and the Parkland shooting conspiracy theories are nearly impossible to find now on YouTube.  Videos questioning the age of the pyramids and chem trails have been greatly reduced as well.  Many of these theories are patently ridiculous (looking at you, flat-earthers).  But you know what?  They should still be put up.  I’d be interested to hear their point of view and consider what they’re putting out there.  If it’s absurd they subject themselves to ridicule.  But maybe they’ll present different viewpoints or evidence not considered before.  And again, it’s not YouTube’s place to decide what is and is not acceptable for our viewing consumption.  The videos that were left on those topics were from YouTube approved sources like mainstream news outlets; hardly the institutions that will ever truly question the narrative.  Somewhat surprisingly, you can still find a decent amount of moon landing hoax conspiracy theory videos on YouTube…for now.  Not surprisingly, users exposing the pedophelia epidemic in DC and Hollywood like David Seaman and Jamie Dlux are banned outright or given strikes (and likely soon to be banned).

It gets worse.  This isn’t restricted just to historical or current events.  Questioning the validity of some scientific claims is now punishable too.  In Australia, you can now be thrown in jail for up to 10 years for speaking about the dangers of vaccines.  Why?  Isn’t that mildly suspicious?  If vaccines are so safe for us why should it be against the law to question their validity?  Especially in light of the fact that more than 50% of scientific studies cannot be reproduced by their peers.  We should be questioning scientific data and results more than ever now.  How long will it be before it’s against the law to question our contribution to climate change?

Whatever dark forces are conspiring to keep these topics off limits are doing themselves a disservice in that they are showing their hand and creating smoke in areas they wanted to be ignored altogether.  I, like most people, never really questioned the details of the Holocaust too much before hearing about those laws.  Similarly, in my recent posts about vaccine skepticism it was more of a curiosity for me.  Laws like this only make me more skeptical.

The truth does not need laws to protect it.  It can speak for itself.  Let people question the Holocaust or vaccines all they want.  If the evidence is ironclad that the events went down as said, or that a particular vaccine is safe for public consumption, then they do not need laws to prohibit speaking against them.  Prohibition only raises more questions.

Do not be afraid to pursue the truth.  It will never lead you astray.  Do not be afraid of what you will find.  Often times it is very ugly or depressing.  Often times the coverup is worse than the truth itself.  It is when we willingly turn away or hide it completely that we end up lying to ourselves, and when you can lie to yourself you open the door to darker evils.

Looking ahead into 2019

There was a lot to be learned in 2018 if one was paying attention.  Here’s a few observations that we can learn from to use in 2019.

The Programming Runs Deep

People really can be programmed.  The more someone listens to the mainstream media news, or talk shows, or Netflix, or a variety of other narrative-approved sources, the stronger the connection.  Scott Adams likens it to two movies on the same screen.  Essentially people’s opinions and thoughts can be altered by the information they allow to feed into their brains.  This sounds obvious on the surface.  But the level of control and the amount of control is scary.  Social engineering.  This has been known for a long time.  Check out Edward Bernays and the Art of Public Manipulation.

It starts small.  Maybe it’s an innocuous image or two of a multi-racial family in a print ad or TV commercial.  Innocent in and of itself until you realize what they’re trying to do.  Or maybe it’s a slight change of lettering or wording.  The Berenstain Bears instead of the Berenstein Bears.  Or inventing terms like Judeo-Christian.  Or how about using Google vs Bing for your search results.  If you can accept that maybe there is a deeper, darker, more sinister objective to these types of seemingly innocent things you can begin to see what is going on.

This has gone on for years.  It is not a new phenomena.  But it has hit a tipping point with many people.  Changes are happening faster over a shorter time period now.  Heck, look at Democratic talking points from 2018 vs 2008.  A 2008 Democrat was very anti-war.  Now they are mad President Trump is pulling out of an illegal war in Syria.  Once they were for the “little guy”.  Now they are all about big corporation funding.  A fence/wall, which they were all for in 2006 and 2013, is all of a sudden now the hill they’re willing to die on.  Most Democrats weren’t for gay marriage until about 10 years ago either.  Nor were they for illegal immigration.

All this is to say to be careful about what you watch and what you allow your loved ones to watch.  They do not report the news in an unbiased manner.  They have an agenda.  Look up who owns the NY Times or the Washington Post.  Do you really think these billionaires don’t have an ulterior motive other than presenting the news and facts as they are?  Of course not.  It’ll only get worse.  And the inversion of our values will only get worse.

For better or worse, it’s made me question a lot of the things I once took for granted.  We’ll get into this more later this year but even things like the moon landing are now questionable events that I once took for undisputed truth.  You will never go wrong by pursuing the truth.  You may get led down dark paths and discover things you never wanted to know, but this is ALWAYS preferable to lying to yourself.  Once you lie to yourself you can rationalize all sorts of evil and undesirable behavior and actions.

Evil is Real

This ties in a bit with the first point.  True evil does exist out there.  We’ve spoken about the rampant pedophelia problem in DC and Hollywood.  One of the ways the Cabal controls people is through blackmail.  Subscribe to Owen Benjamin if you want a rational, down to Earth view of the dark, sinister shit that goes on in these circles.  He was in these circles but couldn’t give in to the evil that necessarily seems to go along with making it “big” in Hollywood or DC.

Evil is real.  Sometimes it’s easier to spot evil than it is to spot good.  For me, I began to really notice and take seriously true evil around the time of Pizzagate.  That link is a pretty good starting point.  Check out neonrevolt.com and crazydaysandnights.net to go down that rabbit hole a little bit more.  It is not for the faint of heart.  If you can accept that evil is a real thing then you are on the path to truth.  It has rejuvenated my interest in Christianity, something I took for granted but now realize how much it has shaped our civilization and we’ve all gotten a glimpse of what a post-Christian Western civilization world looks like without it.  It is not pretty.  If you can accept that true evil exists then that is a good starting point to seeing that truth and true good also exists.  This is the path to Christ.

Protect Yourselves

2018 saw an unprecedented amount of censorship and deplatforming.  Dissident personalities like Alex Jones were rigorously ostracized and attacked for having views that did not fit with the accepted narrative.  Alternative news sources and individuals were demonetized and deplatformed on Twitter and YouTube like never before.  This is not an accident.  They are trying to silence the voices of those who speak truth and offer alternative viewpoints to the thoughts and opinions they want you to think.  “They” being the Master of the Universe aka Silicon Valley and their Deep State backers.  The cat is out of the bag.  This isn’t some tinfoil hat conspiracy theory anymore.

It’s a dangerous time to be a conservative in America.  You can easily be doxxed and have your life ruined for sharing your opinions.  I debated using a pseudonym or not when starting this site.  It’s certainly a risk to use one’s real name these days.  Be careful with what you post.  Consider what is at stake and what you’re willing to risk to share your opinions.  One should always post and profess the truth.  Just be careful with whom and how you share the truth.  It is not an even playing field out there.

2019 is going to be a good year.  The pieces are in place to have the hammer drop on the swamp creatures in DC and Hollywood.  Let’s learn from what happened in 2018 and continue to grow and adapt.  The attacks that come at us will only make us stronger.  Our arguments and positions are sharpened from all the criticism and vitriol.  We are antifragile.

Diversity is not our strength

This isn’t much a news flash to anyone who reads this site.  At least how the official narrative of diversity goes.  In reality WE are the preservers of diversity.  We want to preserve each culture and group of people separately, enjoy each culture as they are and celebrate them, not mash them all together into one giant mess.  When I go to Japan, I want to experience Japanese culture.  Not globalism every-country-is-the-same culture.  Jared Taylor of American Renaissance did a wonderful video on this recently.  Find it below.  Mr Taylor is often incorrectly labeled as a white supremacist, even though he speaks fluent Japanese and continually reminds us how much better certain groups of Asians perform better than whites, amongst myriad other examples.

In a time when civil discourse is becoming harder to have with those of differing opinions, it is more important now than ever to spread these ideas.  We are so very close to all out civil war.  The divide continues to grow.  We need to continue to foster dialogue with the left before it descends into violence.  If it’s even possible at this point.
