There was a great story on the FOX News site this morning about the Austin, TX police department walking away from their duties. There are several things going on there. One (Austin being a commie town) is that they have a “defund the police” movement, which affects everything from budgeting to morale. Two, being a border State they’re being inundated even more than usual with the scum of the world.
Looking for a picture for the post I run across a story saying the Governor of Texas is floating the idea that the Austin PD should be taken over by the State, its so dysfunctional. That’s not good. The story at FOX was just devastating:
“Kirk Andrews, owner of Petticoat Fair Lingerie in north Austin, told KVUE News that when he called authorities after his shop had been robbed, they said that he should put on gloves and search for bullet casings because police would not be able to assist due to the coronavirus.”
Collect your own evidence?? That’s gonna hold up in court?? Yeah when there are bullet casings at a crime scene, that’s an indication it was not a misdemeanor! Contemplate just one of the implications of this, vigilantism. And then the macro aspect, what it means for a society when the rule of law takes a holiday. Its ridiculous!
Cops generally aren’t worth a shit in the best of times, throw in a flood of illegals, COVID and defunding and you’re talking about a serious mess! Austin is the San Francisco of Texas, a liberal enclave. They are getting exactly what they deserve. The trouble is you know there are going to be a handful of decent people that live there, that are being taken down along with the idiots. That’s a shame.
It just reminded me how poorly served we are in Ames by our police department. I’m not even going to go into it all: the lack of patrolling, the entire overnight shift sitting at the station, the carnage resulting from their failure to write ‘running the red’ tickets, bike lanes to nowhere choking traffic. Cops start around $80K here, then I remembered its actually 2 1/2 times what is paid after benefits and associated costs of employing someone. So its actually a budget impact of $200K per cop. Not to mention the societal costs of accidents, injuries and mayhem as a result of bad policing.
What the hell is with the media? With the murder by muslim of British MP Sir David Amess, they refused to name his murderer. Days later it finally leaks out, and you can’t find a picture of the guy! The guy above looks 25, looks Somali, but we don’t know!
With previous murders of British government officials, they will not only tell you “who dunnit”, but what they were thinking when they did it (“neo-nazi, right wing extremist”). Why do they protect this murderer? The guy was arrested at the scene with blood on his hands.
Islam is at war with the west and pretending it isn’t so won’t make it so. And what is so tough about saying the name Ali Harbi Ali? I can say it with ease: Ali Harbi Ali Ali Harbi Ali Ali Harbi Ali Ali Harbi Ali Ali Harbi Ali Ali Harbi Ali Ali Harbi Ali Ali Harbi Ali Ali Harbi Ali Ali Harbi Ali Ali Harbi Ali
[“who is being held at a London police station under the Terrorism Act 2000” – why do you need a special ‘act’ to hold a murderer? And why was this act passed in 2000 a year ahead of 9/11? What did they know?]
The Titanic analogy they use on today’s episode of the Keiser Report is just too funny. There are so many layers to it. They compare the 2 1/2 hours of relative calm after the Titanic hit the iceberg, to the final 10 minutes before they sank when everyone figured out there weren’t enough lifeboats and that they were all toast. Albeit soggy toast.
Fiat’s final days are here according to Max and Stacy. COVID and the supply chain breakdown might be the final push off the cliff when the Fiat car goes tumbling down the cliff, turning over a few times before it hits a rock and explodes! Everybody inside dies.
They make mention (as do the comments) of the hoarding starting to take place again. A lack of confidence in the currency, the supply chain and our government. Part of his continuing focus on bitcoin and how the establishment is desperately trying to squeeze a few more days out of fiat because the absolute last thing they want in this world is to be constrained by an honest money system.
Author Harry Figgie pointed out 30 years ago that America’s financial collapse would either manifest itself through panic or hyperinflation. It looks like its going to be hyperinflation.
“Don’t blame me, I voted for mean tweets, $1.69 gas, low taxes, a wall, and world peace.”
“Some even believe we (the Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” — David Rockefeller
A commenter at the end of a Breitbart article this morning mentioned David Rockefeller and his globalist ties, which reminded me of the above quote. I hadn’t thought of him much as he had assumed room temperature some time ago. It all just reminds me of the ride Americans have been taken for the last roughly 100 years.
Sold out by their elected representatives, sometimes for ideology, sometimes for cash, sometimes for personal power. It all kind of climaxed this past election with the American people putting a crook like Joe Biden in office along with his criminal artist son. Any country that stupid deserves what it gets. And we’re about to get it good and hard.
I just happened to run across this list of “Jewish quotes”. It followed up in a search engine with all these rabbinical authorities saying its all garbage. Probably 15 years ago when Jew Dennis Miller had a radio show, he had comedian Jew Alan King on. King, unused to live radio at one point when talking about women tells Miller, “Heh, heh, you know what they say about gentile women, you can fuck ’em, you just can’t marry ’em!” So I don’t know what the Torah and the Talmud say about it, but I sure as hell know what Jews think about it.
“It all started at the end of a televised Nascar stock car race in Talladega, Alabama, on 2 October. NBC reporter Kelli Stavast was interviewing the winner, driver Brandon Brown, when members of the crowd in the grandstand behind them began chanting an obscenity directed at the president.” (shirt) That was pretty quick on her feet for the reporterette to come up with “Let’s go Brandon!” on the spur of the moment.
Norms don’t know anything about this. It would be funny if during the football games tomorrow you can hear the chants. Norms be going, “What’s that?”
The cancel culture is scary business. Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden resigns over emails. Dancing With the Stars host Tom Bergeron is forced out because he didn’t like former Trump spokesman Sean Spicer (above) being put on the show.
The Thought Police are on patrol. Who is pure enough to withstand such intense scrutiny? Individualism sacrificed on the alter of group think. Thought crimes can take anybody down, but its usually those who have offended the Left.
Two of the biggest exceptions were Bergeron and Ellen Degeneres. Usually it happens like it did to Trent Lott when he was forced to resign from the Senate over platitudes he made at a birthday party for the 100 year old Strom Thurmond! Its hard to verbalize my concerns, but as a non-conformist, I just know its terrifying.
Its all part of what I call ‘reverse imperialism’. Like our recently celebrated Columbus Day. Who has recently been dethroned because he interrupted the indigenous people from eating each other in this fairy tale hemisphere. Talk about the true history revisionists.
I read just today when he arrived here the indians gave him slaves, who when he got back to Spain he promptly freed. And that Columbus Day was started to help ease the discrimination against Italian Americans! Yeah, there was a period where they were pretty low on the totem pole.
But what I mean about the reverse imperialism is how we were said to have exploited others by bringing civilization to savages, now they are absolutely flooding western countries and turning them into shitholes. They are bringing us down while building nothing.
Karma? Revenge? It looks like they are going to win in the end. Homosexuals, transvestites, now they’re taking out big tough football types. There’s irony in there somewhere I’m telling you!
When 30 years before the football players made the queer’s life hell in high school, now its their turn. Reminds me of the 80’s movie Revenge of the Nerds. Or back in the day when the perennial doormat Northwestern football team was getting wiped out on any given Saturday, the chant would rise up from the stands, “That’s alright, that’s okay, we’re going to be your boss someday!”
“Now Biden sending your tax dollars to Afghanistan.” He didn’t even get a pledge out of them to cooperate with the U.S. to root out ISIS from their country, he’s just giving them your money. We gave the Taliban army $80 billion dollars of military equipment the American taxpayer bought. Now we’re giving them “humanitarian” aid. Not to mention we’re bringing those terrorists here.
How do you go to war with a country and end up giving them aid, military equipment and a home in your country?
I must be stupid because I don’t get it. They attacked us. Meanwhile political protesters in America still held without charge. While he gives aid and comfort to the enemy.
Aldous Huxley wrote ‘Brave New World‘ in 1931. I have to admit I’m completely unfamiliar with it. From this video I surmise he predicted today, 90 years ago. The future he predicted where the oligarchy have control locked down, and the controlled “love their servitude”, seems knocking at the door.
I thought of it years ago as a wooden cube. The lid is being put on now and the fourth screw is just being started. For all intents and purposes its over now, but it will really be over once that fourth screw is locked down.
Hypnotism, mind control, the power of suggestion, its all being done on the internet. They’re talking right now about how drugs and alcohol facilitate this conditioning. The “woke” crowd (formerly political correctness) in charge of our institutions, further enforcing the learning curve. All aspects of society are working against individualism.
Westerns in the 50’s and 60’s were television. They all ‘died’ about 50 years ago. I’ve long maintained they had to die. Our western hero was nothing if not the quintessential individual. His own man. Self reliant. Much like Ayn Rand’s John Galt. That wouldn’t do. Compliant man has to be the hero of the Brave New World.
The melding of man and machine. Controlled breeding for eternal servitude.
“The reception of Brave New World at its publication was primarily negative. Many were offended by the nature of Huxley’s future, and very few understood the novel’s philosophical implications. Many schools and libraries all over the world banned the novel, and even today it remains on lists of censored books. Parents and teachers argue that the novel’s themes of promiscuity, self-harm, and overall negativity are not suitable for children. Others, however, are still influenced by the novel’s take on dystopia, which forces the reader to ponder: In a perfect world with no poverty, sickness, or sadness, what is society missing? This question and the answers provided by Huxley in Brave New World are, perhaps, the reason the novel continues to resonate.” – Britannica
“Hollywood will never make this into a movie. It’s too much about them.” – YouTube comment
Lookup “unrest in Australia” on YouTube and you’ll get quite a list of videos. The government there seems to be at the forefront of the new COVID totalitarianism. Like Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan or Newsom in California. They want to take it out on the people of their states and countries way more than they do Fauci and the Chinese who invented it.
How convenient I thought that a tyrannical regime should take over in Australia just a few years after they turned in their guns. It caused me to look up when and why that was.
Martin Bryant was the perpetrator of the 1996 Port Arthur Massacre. He was a known nutcase (he was on a government pension for his disability), yet he was allowed to stockpile weapons in contravention of their own laws. He was able to stockpile weapons because he had knocked off the lottery heiress who had made him the sole inheritor of her will.
Its a classic case once again where the government falls down on the job, doesn’t enforce their own laws, then at the time of tragedy caused by their own malfeasance, acts like its the law abiding gun owners fault!
The guy was a nut. It says right on the gun purchase forms, “Are you under the care of a mental health professional?” Yes, he was*. They don’t enforce that here either. Nor the one about substance abuse. People with DWI’s are screaming, “I’m not eligible!” Yet they routinely handout purchase and carry authorizations to people with drunk driving convictions.
And they do that, for exactly that reason. For the crisis it creates, and their opportunity to act. January 6.
[*for the reasons just stated, law enforcement on a background check refuses to look at anything beyond criminal violations. They will not incorporate mental health records, which they are fully authorized to do by statute. So of course you end up with a “nut with a gun.”]
So much of prepping is on what you might call being high up on a sliding scale. Say for instance if normal times were a 5, the disaster we prep for is a 3 or 4, when we would still have electricity, gas and water. The whole scenario changes dramatically if you lose a utility or two. Then say you might have prepped a boatload of food, but you no longer have a way to cook it.
Or the key commodity, water. Say you have a Berkey Water Filter, but what if water isn’t even flowing through the pipes? Maybe you even prepped for a generator and paid an electrician to wire it to your house, how do you keep that generator from looters? When you can hear that generator late at night from a block away?
Speaking of looters, there are those who don’t prep and say they will just take from those who have. Maybe you are armed and trained, but will there be anyone to guard your stash during those times you have to leave? Have you thought about an assistance network? Maybe your neighbors are top of the line, what about when they get hungry? Real Hungry?
Not to mention, if you think the crush at the border is bad now, what about when things really go south? All of the south will be coming north then. And the last thing the authorities are going to want is people defending themselves. Being independent. Not needing them. It was pointed out on the radio just yesterday that the Fed’s want local police and governments to fail, they want all of it to be nationalized.
Me? I can see surviving a Level 3 or 4 collapse. Being a dainty prepper. But a 1 or 2? A complete collapse of society? Nah I don’t see surviving that. You’d have to have really good, smart and prepared neighbors. The lone wolf would get picked off pretty quick. That’s probably the key right there, not working so much on the store of goods, but on a store of goodwill. A network, an association.
And in typical fashion I didn’t lay out the basis for this focus on prepping. A lot of smart people see something coming. That means 1 of 2 things. All the “experts” were wrong, or you had to be blind not to see it coming. Those smart people are looking at the big financial picture, the social unrest, how the COVID is being used to usher in the Big Reset.
March 15, 2020 is when the Great Toilet Paper Apocalypse hit the last time. During the next 2 weeks I watched store shelves empty out. Quick. My Walmart was bare. There was panic buying then, over nothing. Can you imagine in the face of a real disaster? Aside from the issues I mentioned in the previous paragraph, China is making noise threatening Taiwan. The nut in North Korea is always there.
With Biden throwing all pretense of having a border out the window, how many battle hardened Islamic terrorists have we let in the country the past year? Police can’t handle a single lone shooter, what if there were a hundred semi organized team of shooters? A thousand? What that would do also (and serve their purpose), is lead to gun confiscation.
People prep for the calamity they’re comfortable with, not the worst case. It would be good to go into it with some skills. A nurse, a plumber, an engineer. We as a people are grossly ill-equipped for a wide scale disaster. We’re soft, “Where can I charge my phone??” America of the 30’s and 40’s still had roots in the victory garden and killing and preparing game.
Going back to March 15 of last year (and the panic in the grocery aisles over nothing), how long did it take to come out of that? Frankly it was a year. Nobody went hungry, but supply wasn’t like it normally was. I know what my skills are, what are yours? Dr David Jeremiah was just on the radio yesterday making a good case that we are in the early days of the tribulation.
China is the big variable in all this. What if the weakness of the Biden administration is just too much temptation for them, and they go for Taiwan? We resist and they nuke DC? They make practically every thing we use. What if that’s cutoff? A year? Maybe two? If they take out Washington, its really up in the air then. Chinese troops on main street.
“This problem can not be fixed by 24/7 work days or thousands of new workers because it is caused by a new California emissions control law for 18 wheelers that just recently went into effect. All trucks older than 3 years do not met the new standards, so simply there is not enough trucks and there will not be enough trucks in the foreseeable future. What’s odd about this how the media and government are doing all they can to keep the truth from coming out.”
