Unplugged

Every once in a while, I get complaints about reading too much from news articles in the show, rather than talking about the subjects. The logical response is to then do a show in which I have no prepared material. I just turn on the mic and start talking for an hour on whatever happens to come to mind. After all, the pendulum is supposed to swing from one extreme to the other. That is what I have done this week. I just let it rip on a few topics that were on my mind when I started.

The thing is, I could probably go on a ten hour, Chris Farley rant without too much trouble, other than the possible stroke. I don’t know about anyone else, but I am done with the ongoing revolution. It seems that everywhere we turn, there is some new madness or new tax on our patience. It is close to impossible to live a normal day, much less a normal life now. Even the most basic task brings a reminder that we live in a continent sized lunatic asylum.

All of us are highly adaptable, but there is a limit. Adapting to some new style or process is not so hard. There is no logic to clothing styles, for example, so you don’t have to give up your sanity to embrace the new thing. The same is true of some new way of doing something. If it saves time or reduces error, adapting to it makes sense, so you reprogram your mind to it. What we see going on around us is insane and you can never really adapt to madness. You just tolerate it.

Toleration has its limits. The other day I got an e-mail from a client. I’m not sure why I was included, as it was an internal e-mail to employees. The point of the e-mail was to suggest all employees list their preferred pronouns in their signature. It’s not enough that these people feel the need to deny reality. They insist that the rest of us participate in their madness. Everywhere you turn, someone is trying to make you carry the burden of their madness. It is tax that is never paid in full.

All of us are amazed, to one degree or another, at how the crazies keep finding new ways to be crazy in public. I keep waiting for the people in charge of this simulation to halt the game and laughingly admit they were just having some fun. The truly remarkable thing, however, is that some otherwise normal person has not had a falling down moment. If any age cried out for a vigilante it is this one. It is as if the people in charge are trying to push us to the breaking point.

Maybe our side is reading it all wrong and the vast majority of people think what is happening is the best thing ever. The people in charge keep making that point, but that seems unlikely. Instead, it seems that most people are quietly seething. They distract themselves as best they can in order to avoid being miserable, but whenever the revolution intrudes into their lives, their jaw tightens and their fist clinch. There are a lot of pissed off people walking around these days.

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. I am now on Deezer, for our European haters and Stitcher for the weirdos. YouTube also has the full podcast. Of course, there is a download link below.

Similarly, Steve Sailer has barely mentioned coronavirus or the restrictions in weeks and he usually posts multiple times a day.

The wife divorce-raped us and stole our children. We’re sitting in prison with no one to advocate for us based upon her false accusations. She had our beloved dog put down to spite us. We are surrounded by actual criminals and pedophiles who try to get with us whenever we start to fall asleep for one wink. It’s a little difficult to just move on.

When he was pushing the CoronaPanic, he almost never responded to criticism or explained why he thought he was right. Now, he pretends like he never had anything to say about it.

This is a universal feature of the human mind: hypocrisy. It is much easier to find fault with others than oneself. If you even notice your own failings you are above average.
I like the Jesus parable of the well intentioned do-gooder wanting to help remove the speck (or splinter) in his neighbor’s eye when he has a board in his own. Applied to the present day, too many people have a lumber yard in their eye! 😀

Yes, that parable is me – Jesus was brutal with truth. And then there’s pre-Jesus Socrates who broke mankind into two groups: 1) Those who know they’re fools, which is the first step to wisdom, and 2) Those who think they’re wise, which is proof-positive that they’re unrepentant fools. Today we start teaching pre-schoolers and kindergartners how special and smart they are … dumbest move ever for a people who want to instill wisdom.

The rise of the internet and the demise of the local newspaper has destroyed local print journalism which has left local television as the last man standing and television journalism is an assembly line.

In Canada the old media is losing money big time. The Turdeau promised them 600 million shekels just prior to the last election, to be delivered after the election.

You’re right about the sins of TV journalism, but I think you’re looking at earlier times for local newspapers through rosy spectacles. With a few honorable exceptions, local news writing and editing was mediocrity personified even in the supposed good old days. There wasn’t a lot of reflection and research in front page stories about the upcoming tractor pull and swimsuit contest. The first rule of survival for a local paper was getting as many subscribers’ names as possible into bland articles, so the folks could feel famous for a day. Authors were often freelancers and stringers, not crusading reporters… Read more »

“There are a lot of pissed off people walking around these days.”

So true. Yet when I meet/greet white (particularly blue-collar) strangers I’m starting to see a bit more civility … a bit more understanding that we dirt-people need each other; i.e. It’s better to be pissed-off together. I don’t see that same mentality among the professional class – maybe too much “human awareness” conditioning from their corporate masters. But we of the Pissed-Off Party have a great opportunity for recruitment right now. Loyalty to political ideology is being supplanted by loyalty to fellow dirt-people.

If you have a gifted child, home schooling or alternative education is a must. Even in your example you are providing 1 day’s education in half a day. If your child is of high IQ, you should be presenting 2 day’s education in one day. Then you are doing justice to your child. Public school will never do that.

A vast amount of school time today is spent with kids sitting around, watching vidya or waiting for teacher to stop arguing with Tyrone & Shaniqua. The benefits of homeschooling are so manifest that the burden of proof is on anti-home-schoolers to show me one positive upside for public school. Even with private school, how many teachers have quality and unique talents that are superior to the benefits of family cohesion and small-group instruction you get with homeschool?… Read more »

I find meandering dialogue common in women—duh. Even after 40 years, still a bone of contention with wife. She talks, but rarely gets to the point. If I interrupt, I’m being controlling. If I ignore, I never listen. Talking is for her to share emotion, rather than information. Problem is my emotions are triggered by entirely different things than hers, so in a sense, I don’t listen.

As I’ve told her a number of times when the above exchange occurs, “You don’t want a husband, you want a sister.” 😉

The organization which produced this report is funded by Soros’ Open Society and the Ford Foundation. It is therefore essentially shitlib and should be regarded skeptically.

That recalls an interesting point. In true Communist countries, if they wanted to get rid of you, they denounce you as a “conter-revolutionary.” As I understand it, Communism is an ongoing revolution. That makes sense, in a way: just like our unhinged LIberals, there must always be a new goal to achieve, especially if the previously-announced one was reached or (much more likely) has been abandoned as unattainable (“Why?” is never asked.) This makes perfect policy sense: keep the masses dazzled with promises of a glorious future. Meanwhile, wreckers or just plain trouble-makers who question past or present missteps can… Read more »

Doesn’t matter how eloquent a speaker any Conservative now is, MSM won’t give him aIr time like Reagan. I remember Reagan’s addresses to the nation.

Now when the networks sense Trump is getting too good air on the Coronachan committee updates, they cut the news feed and unabashedly argue about not promoting Trump.

I was not quite old enough to vote in ’76 – and that was a good thing, as I was still the liberal I had been raised to be. Never really thought about registering to vote abroad in 1980. So in 1984, as a newly-hatched republican after my time overseas, I voted for Bush. And at least half of my American grad-school classmates considered me a reactionary, while all the foreign-born (of any race) considered Bush the prudent choice. Should have made me think, but I was still young and relatively naive.

Looking back at the 1988 GOP Presidential Primary, does anyone have any theories on why the candidates were so bad? I was too young to follow politics at the time, but Dole ran a distant second. After that it was Pat Robertson and Jack Kemp in a very distant fourth. What happened that left the party with that slate of candidates after eight years of Reagan?

As I posted elsewhere, in 1988, the Dems nominated a man who, as governor, had essentially given a weekend pass to a convicted robber and murderer, who celebrated by going down to Maryland to burglarize, assault and rape. He is still a “guest” of MD. 😀 Apparently the Dems hadn’t considered that it would likely cost him the election.

From what I have determined, the big mistake was when Reagan picked Bush as his running mate in 1980. I don’t know how much better someone like Paul Laxalt would have been, but he couldn’t have been worse. It most likely would have spared us the Bush dynasty as well.

Hah. I just looked up Billy Kilmer and he’s not dead yet. So he’s thrashing in his Lazy Boy, not his grave. Sorry Billy! He’s only 80.

The Onion says that they plan to change the name from the Washington Redskins to the DC Redskins. Everybody wins.

I very much like the regular format and I especially like that you read what you are commenting on. The reading of the first parts of the article puts your comment on it in perspective without me having to pause the video, go read the article so it is all fresh in my mind and then go back and hit play again. It would also significantly increase the amount of time it would take to listen to the podcast without the reading.

The future of the west is a hairy tranny prison guard’s high-heeled foot on the neck of an unemployed white prole imprisoned for using the N word after a group of POCs attacked him first.

Exactly. If POC criminals—including murderers—are being released from prison en masse and it is increasingly impossible to imprison POC criminals in the first place—grooming gangs continue to run wild—then who are the prisons being built for? For white people.

If we’re near the point where all POC will be exempt from the law, then the only people filling up the prisons will be 12 year old white boys jailed for using the gamer word. And that’s exactly who the pedophilic tranny prison guards want under their watch.

Yeah, but I doubt that would have gone any differently under a GOP prez; if anything it might have gone worse since at lease Dems can feel they have enough Lib points to half ignore the tiny hat crowd. And, ditto Somalia.

OK, I just got done listening to the podcast (which I enjoyed very much), and will take to heart your observation from the first segment that media no longer fosters real public debate. So here goes. In the second segment on politics, you assert that Trump has been a complete failure so far and done nothing. Well, not so fast. Killing NAFTA and replacing with a better trade deal was significant. Ditto with China, who had been endlessly raping the US economy prior to Trump. Those are no trivial accomplishments. Do you really think Biden would have done that, given… Read more »

In what sense is the new NAFTA better than the old one? China? We need to start slowly creating a ban on imports from domestic companies.

Under NAFTA, China was using Canada and Mexico as backdoors into the US market. They would manufacture parts in China, assemble finished products in Canada or Mexico, and then export to US duty-free. The new trade agreement eliminates that, and creates incentives for businesses to increase domestic manufacturing again. Trump is a businessman first and foremost. He will not be bested in deal-making.

Only US expenses should be tax deductible.
Eligible expenses must include the US tax-id of the person/entity to whom the expense was paid.

It’s upside down world. Whites, through niceness, treachery and cowardice, have put the most dysfunctional, violent and stupid people in charge of “America.” As Z says, this country is a continent-sized lunatic asylum.

I tend to agree with Elon M that we are in fact living in a giant holographic projection. I think that explains UFOs. They are a kind of test pattern inserted into our reality periodically to recalibrate well… everything.

Yeah, knowing how much computing power it takes to even recreate a city street in a video game, I am always little skeptical of the “living in a hologram” idea. Add in all the animals and plants that grow and people we interact with and all the computing power it would take for them, and I walk away thinking it is pretty much an impossibility. And I find it hard to believe that when I die that my cat, for example, won’t still be kicking around whining for food and attention. Whatever it is we are living, it is pretty… Read more »

Now that’s weird. Falcone, I tried replying to you but my comment got cancelled. Message said it was being moderated, now it’s gone. Zman I didn’t say anything controversial but I did use the word ‘h*te’ with an ‘a’ there where the asterisk is. Are your comments being moderated by some third party?

I think incipient Falling Downers may hold on until after the election.
At which point, regardless of outcome, all the blackpilling, defeatism, and schadenfreudic auto-fellation must yield to a big (white) tent rhetoric of action, coupled with encouragement of an appropriate caliber.

“I don’t know about anyone else, but I am done with the ongoing revolution. It seems that everywhere we turn, there is some new madness or new tax on our patience. It is close to impossible to live a normal day, much less a normal life now. Even the most basic task brings a reminder that we live in a continent sized lunatic asylum.”
There’s some comfort in knowing you are not alone. Whatever amusement there may have been in all this idiocy, it’s now long gone.

Something else to despair over: just as, when individuals breed there is regression to the mean, so it is too when cultures intermix. Bear in mind that western civ had worked its way to about six standard deviations ahead of the mean. Pray for your descendants. They may have to ride the curve all the way down. We’re currently experiencing the unease that comes as the roller coaster crests the hill and begins its descent.

I am one of the fun police with the movies. Frankly, I don’t see how anyone who thinks as we do can watch a movie and sit through it with such obvious clownary that is pervasive in TV and movies. Every movie and every TV show is now loaded with messaging whether or not it is implicit or explicit. They are all anti-white and or anti-Christian.

Although I still love his shows (Dragnet, Adam-12, Emergency!) Jack Webb was a master at that. Anyone who wasn’t from the City of Angels was portrayed as hopelessly backward; naive hicks to the extreme. In fact, many of his fellow white Angelenos were given very similar treatment. Listen to the radio version of Dragnet and you start to realize that while Detective Friday is cool and calculating, the people he questions are often depicted as simpletons. They repeat themselves often and constantly question the most basic facts. Along those lines, Zman’s podcast today, the part about sports reporters, made me… Read more »
