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.

The toughest thing about Kung Flu predictions is that sane people are very bad at predicting the behavior of the truly insane. You assume some motive, some connections, some *anything* to tether it to reality…and it never comes. I remember a buddy in college who started dating a borderline. This is like that. The look in that dude’s eyes when he realized that *nothing* was off the table — she could, and would, do absolutely *anything* — was probably my most beneficial lesson from undergrad.

That was certainly the case here. This dude was messed up for *years* over it. It was then that I finally understood the wisdom my grandfather told me, back when I was a wee lad: “Never stick your dick in crazy.” The funny thing was, there was a group of five or six of us she hung around with. The realization hit me one day – it really could’ve been any one of us. Borderlines are a disease. The fact that she caught Gary, rather than Tim or Steve or me, was almost completely coincidental. This incident also gave me… Read more »

Ah yes, dating the crazy bitch It’s a rockin’ song by Buckcherry, but the reality is at first attractive and fascinating, but as you note, you rapidly see that moderation and judgment are either tossed out the window or never present to begin with.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

True enough. It irritates the hell out of me when this or that problem or situation is blamed on the “pandemic”.

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.

Roberts is going to have to administer the oath one word at a time.

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.

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.

None taken.

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.

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 »

Well I believe Skynet will finally be implemented. The bad is the almost total annihilation of humanity. The good, it solves our immigration and diversity problems.

In reality, this and recent years will look like halcyon days compared to what’s coming. That could bode well in creating strong people capable of a decent resistance movement. On the other hand the docile and compliant masses will demonstrate once again their propensity to accept more strident and totalitarian rules as normal. Faith in the transcendent must return.

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.”

The only thing worse than soccer is American soccer fans. Urban white Patagonia t-shirt wearing liberals who want to belong to some sub culture as their white identities have been obliterated, yet they would never remotely think of that. While the British soccer fans at least get drunk watching a game so boring it’s like watching paint dry, the American ones will nurse a craft beer of some kind the entire game and go through it stone sober. They then ride their Trek carbon fiber bikes home.
