The Year In Review

This year has been strange in many ways, but one bit of weirdness that has gone unnoticed is the paucity of predictions for the coming year. For as long as anyone reading this has been alive, this time of year has featured both year in review content and predictions content. This year both have been limited. Maybe the awfulness of 2020 is keeping people from thinking much about it. The wild unpredictability we have seen has probably made forecasters squeamish about predicting anything.

The Light of Lagos was pretty much a dud last year. The omens got some of the Democrat primary right, but not enough to claim a victory. Biden did struggle and Warren flamed out early. Buttigieg did better in Iowa than most expected, but Sanders was the story until the party rigged the system to install Biden. No one predicted Biden would win the nomination and no one ever imagined that buffoon as president, so the omens can be forgiven for missing that one.

The prediction about Conservative Inc. has been spot on, but that was easy money, so no victory lap there. It will be interesting to see how they try to pump air back into their thing, given the mood of most right-wing whites these days. On the other hand, as long as the money from rich people keeps flowing into their rackets, it probably does not matter all that much. The rich people pay them to play a role and they will play the role, even if the audience has walked out of the theater.

Then there is the fact that a lot of whites are so beaten down and desperate, they will cling to civic nationalism until their dying breath. Everyone should read the comments at Breitbart or National Review once in a while, just to be reminded of this. Granted, many of them move their lips when they read, but most are just frozen in time by a fear of what is happening all around them. Unless and until there is a credible alternative, in terms of organizations, Conservative Inc. will stagger on.

On the sporting front, the Premiere League did not have their first transgender player, but the whole league is gay now, so that’s close enough. The Light of Lagos really hates English soccer. So much so there will be no references to footie, football or the beautiful game in the future. That said, you have to wonder how the English soccer fans are making it through Covid without the ability to attend games or get plastered at the pub watching their team. Boris is playing with fire over there.

The predictions on Brexit were a swing and miss. It is hard to know what is in the deal Boris took from the Euros, but it is probably less than was promised. The deal sailed through Parliament with the support of Farage. He has been the most hawkish on this of all British politicians. He may simply be thinking a flawed deal is better than no deal. Half a loaf is better than no loaf. Still, the omens were wrong about how this would play out, so it goes in the loss column.

The impeachment fiasco played out as predicted, but that was easy money, so no victory lap there either. The real shocker is in how the whole thing was thrown down the memory hole so quickly. No one talks about it. It’s like how someone gets crazy drunk at a party and makes a fool of himself. The next day there is some ribbing from friends, but then it is forgotten. The Democrats danced around with a lampshade on their heads and after it was over, everyone forgot about it.

Now, the big hit was the Barr stuff. It is amazing how so many people thought something would happen with that charade for so long. When Trump brought Barr in it seemed like something would happen, but it quickly became clear that it was just another coverup. Barr was brought in to make sure the truth of the FBI corruption never saw the light of day. You have to wonder if Trump was too stupid to see what was happening or that he signed off on it, despite his tweets.

The omens were mostly wrong on the election. Net out the obvious fraud and the results would have been in line with what was predicted, but that is what is called a gratuitous assertion. The fact is, the result was nothing like what was predicted, so it goes in the loss column. The main takeaway is that most people went to bed on election night thinking Trump won another squeaker, only to learn the next day that mysterious ballots were found to snatch the victory away. Truly incredible.

Of course, the big miss was the Covid panic and how it has been used to turn much of America into a penal colony. No one predicted it, because such a thing seemed implausible just a year ago. It really is shocking to think about how much has changed in just 12 months. This time last year people were planning vacations, walking around with no curfew, having people over to their homes. If someone had predicted this, they would have been dismissed as a crazy person.

That’s probably why there has not been the usual flood of predictions. Usually, predictions are a projection of current trends. All the current trends are as ugly as the people who rule over us. Who wants to think about what comes next with the Covid stuff or how the empire with fare with a dementia patient in charge? Given how bad things got so quickly, who wants to think about what comes next? This has been an ugly year, made uglier by the thought that things will probably get worse.

That brings up something else. Every year the television networks spend forty-eight hours doing New Year’s celebrations. They have live shots from around the world and people reporting at various events. All of that will be cancelled this year. The bars will be empty in most of the country. One of the consequences of the Covid tyranny is that people will not even get to pretend that next year will bring better days. Instead of coming into the new year with hope, most people are pessimistic.

That said, the future will belong to those who keep their wits about them and their eyes trained on the horizon, as the world goes to pieces. Much of what is happening has been predicted for a long time on this side of the great divide. It is not coming about exactly as anyone expected, but the unravelling has begun. What comes next is the fight over who decides what comes next. We’re all alive, which means we can still fight and as long as we can fight, the future belongs to us.

Happy New Year.

Yes, but worse for whom? Those who are unprepared for bad days will certainly have it worse, but those who are prepared should be more or less just fine. Of course it is those who are unprepared for bad days who stand in the way of change, so one they are prepared (or dead), change will come. If you’re prepared, life is finally looking good.

Agree. They hate it here, and if not for the freebies they’d be home in Kebabistan in a shot.

That’s why I always insist that Mohammadanism is a feature, not a bug when it comes to mass immigration: they aggressively self-segregate, there are no nice pool boys, wonderful nannies or cheap roofers to miss, nobody has a charming Mohammadan cousin or in-law, everybody will cheer when they leave.

I’ve told this story many times; A few years ago I took a cab from Göteborg central station to my cousin’s house in Mölnlycke- the driver was an Iraqi, who told me, in broken Swedish, how much Sweden sucked. I thought, well, go home. And I was bemused by the fact that I spoke better Swedish than he did, and I’ve never lived there.
Felix: have you seen the Swedish show “Kalifet”? I deals with middle eastern immigration, and what Derbyshire calls ‘absimilation’ in a way that I thought was forbidden.

Kind of self fulfilling, but because of anticipated future restrictions. Either, as painter said, due to Californication, or if the forever wars expand again, another GWOT market tightening (dod bought up a couple billion rounds a year in 2003-2015 for the Sandbox, put a big squeeze on civilians market). As stated, shopping for ammo supplies has been like buying meat in a soviet store: if you can even find it, it is marked up 500%, rationed, and probably not what you were looking for.

They think they are going to fight for their freedom in some kind of Red Dawn fantasy. They are too obese to engage in any strenuous military action. Their opponents are green-haired freaks domiciled in urban basements. The firearms will be useful for home defense but if you think there is a realistic chance you will need them for this, perhaps you should relocate. Anyways, buying a firearm allows one to think they’ve done their part. Widespread ownership of firearms does have a deterrent effect similar to MAD.

The globohomo soldiers are “diverse” people in the military uniform. A black / mexican / arab would shoot a non-compliant white on sight – and with pleasure. They fantasize about it now, it’s just semi illegal.

However, its still better to be armed than unarmed. Read turner diaries, which I believe gives an accurate depiction of the state of the “diverse” jackboot military.

My wife hated Trump and would not vote for either Trump or Biden. But she is a CPA and the accountant in her abhors all the funny business surrounding the election. She has been on top of all the twists and turns in the election. I used to not even bring up the issue of wearing masks for the virus. Now she even thinks the virus is BS.
She is now getting people to sign Recall Newsom petitions.
Unfortunately, we might at best get another Schwarzenegger like we did when Gay Davis was recalled.

At the start of the US Civil War, no one predicted the extent and severity of the carnage that was to follow. Ditto for WWI. When things go hot, the Elites want the peons to slaughter each other, significantly reduce the numbers of Alpha males, and grow weary of war. This leads to sheeple passivity and easy implementation of tyranny. That is their game, but we don’t have to play along.

With Barry Soebarkah in 2009, Roberts was so excited to be in the presence of a fellow sodomite that he completely botched the oath, and later that afternoon, they had to perform a second take, in the White House, in order to get it right.

Or at least that’s what they claimed they did.

True enough. It irritates the hell out of me when this or that problem or situation is blamed on the “pandemic”. No, it’s not the pandemic/scamdemic, it’s the hysterical overreaction to it by a large swath of the general population and the planned overreaction by our ruling mediocrities. So I’d say at least in most of our lifetimes, this year has been fairly bad – maybe depressing is a better word – and not likely to improve when we say adios to 2020.

True. Ironically, it’s closest analogy is also from medicine. When someone is massively allergic to something (let’s say nuts), upon contact, the nuts themselves do not kill the person.

I feel that the time period from September 2019 to the present was one big op. The impeachment was one thing. It seems that COVID thing became an issue not long after the Trump acquittal. The riots happened after it seemed like the lockdown was getting lifted.

I assumed all or most restrictions would end once the riots started but it seemed like they were able to fool us into wearing our masks and what not. School still being closed is what I find to be most aggravating. Like how are kids going to learn?

Truth and reality always prevails.

In the 5000 or 7500 years of recorded human history, “Truth” almost never prevails – the deification of Truth Itself was the signature accomplishment of Christianity – the concept is utterly unknown to all the other races and their religions in recorded human history.

Reality, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to give much of a damn one way or the other.

And Reality sure as hell isn’t laboring under any requirement [not even a fig leaf of a pretense of a requirement] to play by the Marquess of Queensberry Rules.

Biden will try to get Iran to agree to unacceptable conditions in return for US re-joining the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. Iran’s refusal will be used as evidence of its intention to acquire a nuclear bomb. Enough time will have passed since Iraq that all the lies used then will be forgotten.
War with Iran will come but Iranian proxies in Syria must be dealt with first since they would be a problem for our greatest ally. So look for the US to re-engage in Syria first.
I see Jonathan Pollard has made Aliyah.

The powers that be will use the promise of a return to normal to wring all kinds of concessions out of a desperate public. Bait and switch will be the modus operandi.
Kamela Harris will be President before the end of 2021. Beware the Ides of March, Mr. Biden.

Biden could be gone soon but presidents really have lines in their script that they must not stray too far from. This used to be dealt with by executive action but there are too many cameras around. Now scandals and relentless media attacks are used.
Does AIPAC really care whether it’s Biden or Harris that lets slip the goyim of war? Does the Fed care who runs calls for helicopter money?

I for one am kinda looking forward to the Media non-coverage of the “Biden” regime. Remember how silly the news was under Obama? “Today in Washington… nothing happened. Same as yesterday. Same as tomorrow. Now here’s Brynlee with the weather!” A whole bunch of “there’s nothing to see here, no siree!!” will be a refreshing change, and since Biden shits himself every time he opens his mouth, I suspect lots of people forget the US even has a “president.”

I find the Kamaltoe a curious oddity for the small hat crowd. Obviously, her loyalties are to the Hindunuthin persuasion (who, along with several mattresses, got her where she is today) which is poised to pull an Amsterdam diamond market move on the kosher crowd vis a vis the formerly US. But then she is married to a cheauxen. What to do?

Even though I’ve made the long journey from practically a commie to whatever it is we are calling ourselves today- I spent a long time parked in the CivNat special handicapped space. (Full disclosure- I taught Z’s bete noir Jonah Goldberg in high school, so I’ve always had a soft spot for him) Fact is, I still have a hangover from my CivNat days, because, even though I now believe most if not all of the things discussed here- race realism, that IQ is real, that the people who rule us pretty much hate us, that, as Z says, we’re… Read more »

None taken. In fact my road to realism began with him- granted, through the corner of CivNat Street and Neocon Blvd. I was a liberal (looney left) then, it was Jonah who suggested I read things like Modern Times and The Closing of the American Mind. Mind, you, part of my drift was related to working in NewYork at the heights of the Dinkins terror.

A long, long time ago, Goldberg was actually respectable. Hell, he wrote a column declaring that Africans were incapable of governing themselves and creating a non-hellish society, and that it was the white man’s burden to conquer Africa and rule it for them. Now obviously none of us could sympathize with conquering and ruling Africa, but the fact that Goldberg stated such a race realist position is nothing short of amazing given where he now stands.

People have to believe in something and it’s pretty much impossible for someone at fifty or older to completely abandon a belief system they’ve held for decades. Even if they realize that it is irrational to keep believing. Or maybe hoping is a better word. FWIW the same phenomenon exists on the left as hope for real socialism emerging never dies no matter how irrational it is.

Ben the Layabout’s Predictions for 2021: COVID-19. I was fortunately very wrong: In spring, I feared that the pandemic would result in millions of serious illnesses or fatalities. Glad I was wrong. I hope I’m not so wrong with SOME of my projections, such as: A pandemic usually only lasts a couple years. We may be halfway through our current one. That’d suggest a levelling and perhaps even decline later in the year. Unfortunately, we will probably hit a peak around Feb. 1, the traditional flu peak times. The vaccines: they will continue to face resistance. I’d guess that only… Read more »

Barr did end the Mueller Russian hoax investigation in 2019. That’s something he did at least. However, that was also probably a total scam. Everyone knew it was a fake scandal and they arranged for Barr to take the heat and end it without the Democrats looking too bad.

Yeah, Barr wound it down because the Russia hoax had become a liability. If there was anything positive from it other than waking up more normies to how corrupt and pathetic the United States government is, it also revealed what sniveling parasitic bastards compose The Tribe via their futile attempts to settle old scores with Russia. I am probably an outlier here, but Jewish influence has peaked and will implode over the next few years. This fraud accelerated that along with their obvious use of American children as pedo lures to blackmail the powerful on “our” own soil.

It was obvious to any inquiring mind that Barr (and his daddy) were deep state operatives for decades. The issue then is Trump’s selection of the man.

  1. Trump knew.
  2. Trump didn’t know.
  3. Trump knew but thought that Barr was as good as he could get confirmed.

I’d have Recess Appointed an asshole like Giuliani . In itself the refusal to go through the confirmation clown show would have been a poke in the to the establishment.

There will be one party, nationwide, to rule them all.

Then the “other side” will figure out that election fraud and a fake and ineffectual court system is a two way street, and that it screws everyone, in time.

I don’t know the timetable, but TPTB and that one party are going to lose control, and it will likely be all against all, but a lot of it will be everyone against them. Too many people have been too primed up to want to take down “the man”, once things get rolling, and TPTB are the man. Skynet vs. everyone.
