Year End Correspondence

This will be the last show of the year. This is one of the slowest times of the year for site traffic and show listening. Unlike the filthy degenerates on the other side, our people are out and about with family and friends this time of year. It’s also a good time for me to do some hardware upgrades I’ve been planning. The day job is a bit slower this time of year, so I take the time to clean up lingering items on the list. Normal production will resume after the New Year.

I’m taking the opportunity to knock one thing off the list and that is to catch up on all outstanding correspondence. All the stuff I wanted to use in the show has been used and I only have a few items left in the inbox. One of the things on my next year list is to come up with a better system for handling correspondence. I let this stuff build up and then it is a gargantuan task. I wind up responding to people weeks and maybe months after they sent their initial e-mail. I need a better system.

This is also the time of year when people think about personal goals and projects for the coming year. I’m no different. I’m not into resolutions, but I use this time of year to think about what I can do to make the coming year a little better. In the past, this has been when I have plotted career changes and moving. This year I will be thinking about the latter, as my time here in Lagos is coming to a close. I’m not sure where I will be heading, but I will be looking for less colorful environs.

That is, of course, something we have to consider when moving. It’s not just the diversity at the moment, but the possibility of diversity in the future. These days, whole towns are destroyed by developers, building garbage housing and then adding “affordable housing” to please the local pols. Your nice little town can quickly become a sterile development full of strangers, with a dollop of diversity. All of us are being forced to plan defensively in our careers and our living spaces.

Of course, if any of the anti-white bigots on stage last night at the Democrat debate win in 2020, there will be no place to hide. As we’re seeing in Virginia, the pogroms will begin as soon as they are in office. I had originally thought about moving back to Virginia, but the madness going on there now eliminates the Old Dominion from my list of places to live. The way things are headed, I’m going to end up as Jeremiah Johnson, living up above the tree line to avoid the madness.

This week I have the usual variety of items in the now standard format. Spreaker has the full show. I am up on Google Play now, so the Android commies can take me along when out disrespecting the country. I am on iTunes, which means the Apple Nazis can listen to me on their Hitler phones. The anarchists can catch me on iHeart Radio. YouTube also has the full podcast. Of course, there is a download link below.

A developer told me HUD gives cheap 30 year loans if you add affordable housing(apartments) to the mix. He said without the cheap loans he wouldn’t have much profit. Local politicians and locals hate apartments, so the developer puts in an assisted care facility, because that counts as apartments, and renames apartments “flats”

Some blue states have laws on the books from 15, 20 years ago that are now being used by developers to ram office buildings, restaurants, and luxury apartments into towns under the guise of providing “affordable housing.” If a town’s “housing stock” has less than a certain percentage of “affordable” domiciles (10%, usually) then developers can use that law to bypass local zoning and environmental regulations entirely, and essentially do what they want, wherever they want — so long as they set aside a % of units in the new buildings for affordable housing, typically on the top floor, toward… Read more »

The biggest scam is 40B (MA) where dev’s get to circumvent local zoning density and environmental permitting laws if they’re building housing for families who make less than 80% of the median household income. (A certain percentage of housing must be reserved for “low income.”) E.g., a local “gold coast” town has a median household income of $108K. Qualifying income is now $86K. Who is that really meant to help?

“Flats” v. “apartments” is a regional thing. Just like “theatre” v. “theater” or “centre” v. center. In NE the legacy British/French spellings persist. (Some towns still have Feoffees.) 🙂

Watch the rust belt and a few northeastern states turn red. Hell maybe all of them eventually. Been saying it for a while, wasn’t convinced myself. But it’s starting to look like it’s coming. On the other hand, I think the south will turn blue because of immigration and all the libs moving down. The northern progs are committing political suicide, so the Dems will have to adopt a Dixie flavor or go extinct. The electoral map seems to be reverting to its antebellum state.

This. The push for city and county consolidations from the Sixties onward was the Left’s acknowledgment of and defense against this reality.

Affirmatively Further Fair Housing is analogous to the intent behind mass migration: to dilute the voting blocs of majority white areas.

KGB – separating the cities fromt the countryside is one of the big battlefronts for Our Thing. There are all sorts of issues that divide the two lifestyles that are convergent with Our Issues but don’t require Hatethink-level commitment. We need to work on widening these divisions and making them more explicit and political. The history of successful dissident movements is full of examples where activists operated with the sympathy of the countryside and provinces – China, Ireland, Vietnam and Afghanistan to mention a few.

Harper’s Ferry is a good choice. Neighboring Charles Town is starting to sprawl due to the casino, but Harper’s Ferry is still reasonably unmolested.

Shepherdstown is nice. College towns generally are. Of course, you’ll be surrounded by people who work at the college, i.e. nut bags, but it’s not Harvard so maybe they’re not so bad. Though small, Emmitsburg is also possible. A bit run down but in white way.

I grew up in Alabama (LA, to be more precise) and most of my family are still there. I love it, but damn, it’s hard to find a place more vibrant. On the other hand, it seems that most people tend to live pretty peacefully together as long as you are away from the cities.

Montgomery is a challenge, Couch. Like Birmingham, only more so. Here’s what I mean. Take one of the better public schools ( https://www.greatschools.org/alabama/montgomery/1115-Forest-Avenue-Elementary-School/#Race_ethnicity*Test_scores*Overview ). It’s an elementary school near ASU, so it’s presumably filled with the children of university workers, but is’t still 1/3 vibrant. I’ve driven through the area immediately next to the university and it’s the real deal. My guess is you can send your kids to a good elementary school, but that you then have to pay for private school. It is south Alabama, so even a good public school will have vibrancy. Look up Spain Park,… Read more »

There are fixer-uppers in NH, I assure you (gotta get outside the urban areas though). The thing about PA and WV is that the winters are sufficiently mild (or insufficiently severe) that vibrancy isn’t much discouraged. The winters of northern New England do. Plus, in NH a bloc of rightists+libertarians in the state legislature often controls the outcome on important issues (including notably taxes, business regulation,and 2nd Amendment, property and privacy rights).

Regarding the 2008-2016 contrast you mention: The rural Whites/City Whites mismatch in racial awareness is in the process of reversing due to survivorship bias, as urban whites with “high disgust levels” (to coin a phrase) have been fleeing from the vibrancy, leaving only the true-believing fraction behind.

Sailer mentions this re: School “desegregation/integration” as it currently stands in LAUSD.

Back in the early 70s, when this specific insanity was a hot-button, LA’s school district was still over 50% white. Now it’s under 10%. There’s just too few white kids to scatter about to be meaningful.

The Kindergarten I attended 55 years ago was around 2/3 white, 1/3 Mexican. It is now 98% “Hispanic”.

My parents are boomers. I love them and I’m not looking forward to life without them around. I hope they live to be 100. But there are certain topics it’s not worth discussing with them. Boomers got some big time post-WWII programming. They’re either going to get it on their own or nature will take the course it takes on all of us.

Crypto is for anonymity above all and you pay a lot of premiums for it – transaction fees and price volatility as well as obvious chances for fraud/theft – the degree to which you are protected from bad operators is generally inverse to the real anonymity you enjoy. It has its uses but I’m not surprised that many guys even in Our Thing haven’t bought in.

I doubt there’s a big risk difference on either end between sending Z cash in an envelope without a return address and crypto unless you are sending heavy $$$.

Religion – I’ve been thinking on that topic. If “we” or “our thing” was ever to gain control, we would be looking for glue to hold together our new society and resist all the crap that has destroyed our current system. I don’t believe in forced religion but we would need something. I might suggest making it expressly Christian. Atheist and Jews only tolerated if they behave (don’t subvert and undermine). Muslims sent back to where they came from. I just not sure “white” or “western” is anywhere close to enough.

Christianity as presently conceived is a backdoor for subversion of our people’s interests to (((priestly sophists))).

I’ve done some commenting against E. Michael Jones over at Unz lately railing against his idea of “Catholic Identity” being superior to ethnic/racial identity.

Boomers are all over the place. They are certainly more conservative than their parent who elected FDR 4 times.

Some blustering online aside, my understanding is that each successive generation (Zoomers included) is further left than the previous. This isn’t just self-identification by party or ideology, but also from asking specific “issue” questions like support for gay marriage and so on. However, my understanding is that most of these differences turn out to simply reflect the different demographics (i..e race/ethnicity) of each generation. Zoomers are (overall) far less white than previous generations, QED. The degree to which Zoomers are white vs. non-white is, however, very state-dependent. From this alone, it is likely that big political realignments among the states… Read more »

Zero Hedge posted the age-based voting patterns in the recent U.K. election. The older folks all voted Tory and the younger people all voted Labour.

I look at femmed Millennials and their stupid pipe-stem pants, Bozo The Clown shoes, their pointy “Our Gang” haircuts and I just laugh. They are going to be so screwed.

So far zoomers resemble millennials: increased Left and Right participation at the cost of the center.

The whole insider language thing is weird. I have a relative who is a crazy, postmenopausal, childless cat lady whose only issue is abortion and has given money to the Church of Satan because the Church of Satan is very pro-choice. Shocker I know! Anyway, I used the term ‘virtue signaling’ to her one day and she did not know what it meant and had never heard the term before. So weird to me. Obviously we never ever ever talk politics.

One online virtue signaling commenter declared he was sick of the term but of course it never ocurred to him to stop signaling so I offered him virtue sniveling instead.

Why is it that so many childless and/or menopausal cat ladies are so bent on abortion?

All those bitter pussy hat types. It always comes down to their ladybits. Bits that nobody really wants to grab and wombs that will never give life – yet their biggest concern is making sure young women can rip life from their own on demand.

Leftism really is a death cult.

“Her mind will always be plotting and scheming and churning and burning and whizzing and phizzing with murderous bloodthirsty thoughts.” Dahl was a prophet. He also got physiognomy right on the nose too. “If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until it gets so ugly you can hardly bear to look at it.”

One of our great strengths us we’re a Federation, in many ways this is a power struggle of centralization. The globalists in DC are fighting a losing battle of centralization, doing damage, creating dramas and spectacle but the damage is limited even when pervasive. A danger of Federations however Is in civil war they become many civil wars, politics becomes local and deadly. See 30 years war. Be warned chaos is the enemy’s way of war, beware of disunity and squabbling when the moment comes. See here Virginia; over gun laws. Now to be clear I want the legislature to… Read more »

Z was asked about his view of the role of religion in our movement. My answer is that any religion that meets these requirements is fine:
* Does not desire to import non-whites, no matter how devout, high quality, persecuted, or deserving they may be
* Does not object to strict immigration laws that are rigorously enforced
* Does not object to incentivizing non-whites who are already here to emigrate
* Does not seek to win converts by force or intimidation

In re: * Does not desire to import non-whites, no matter how devout, high quality, persecuted, or deserving they may be That does it right there, for me. You (and yours) can take your Rassenwissen (along with your SS lightning bolts) and stick it right where the sun doesn’t shine. This is why I cannot, and will not ever be, a “white nationalist” or a “white identitarian.” This is the difference between patriotism and nationalism. Patriotism is “love of one’s own.” This is honorable, and a part of what makes us fully human. Nationalism, on the other hand, is “hatred… Read more »

Interesting take on intergenerational warfare among whites. I would add an observation or two. Among the minority of Boomers long redpilled on race, a common denominator appears to be exposure to diversity through forcible school integration, workplace interactions, and/or changed housing patterns. Whether they identified as such or not, they often became paleocons and many joined the Buchanan Brigades. They still make references to their insipid cultural touchstones but they harbor few illusions about vibrancy. The Left, of course, has poor impulse control and bared its fangs perhaps a bit too soon and spilled the beans about its genocidal plans.… Read more »

Law enforcement today has article on Lyft being woke is going broke- Lyft is against 2d amendment.

Two points; one is the police are very pro 2d A, this not news.

Two: I am wondering if being woke is business necessity for the Broke, Lyft hasn’t turned a profit and has little hope of ever getting to profit. Being woke may be necessary to keep the lights on.

Nice to hear you got support in the enemy camps of east and west coast strongholds. The left knows they’re starting to lose control and they reek of desperation. They’re batshit crazy and on full display for all to see !
