View From The Road

Note: No show today as I am traveling this week. I will be posting travel logs behind the green door for those interested. Here is the first installment. I also have a lengthy book review ready to go and once that is posted, I’ll update this with a link.


One of the funny things you experience when traveling to another English-speaking country is their version of your news. I first experienced this in Dublin half a dozen years ago when I popped on the BBC in the hotel. When I travel, I never turn on the television, as the room is just a place to sleep and shower. It was pouring rain so I decided to check out Irish television for the first time. I was greeted by two actors confidently spewing out laughable nonsense about the news.

One guy was talking about Trump as if he had grown up with the man and knew him like a family member. The trouble was, the things he was saying were so absurd that it felt like satire of a crazy MSNBC talking head, but it was serious. The person on the other side of this was an over-the-top version of the pompous news anchor. He was an English version of Ron Burgundy from the movie Anchorman. I was sitting there cackling like Kamala Harris while watching it.

I clicked around the many versions of the BBC and then found Sky News. I had never consumed this product, but my understanding was that it was the Fox News Channel for the rest of the English-speaking world. In reality, it was just another version of the BBC, without the same level of smugness. They had a different actor pretending to know the mind of Donald Trump, telling the audience for this stuff what they needed to hear to get through the trauma of the election.

After I recovered from the hysterical fits of laughter, I realized I was watching the modern version of the freak show. The difference is the freak show never tried to normalize the freaks. The modern freak show seeks to normalize the weirdness in order to open the mind of the viewer to the messaging. Then I realized that like all Americans, I had grown up in the same freak show, with different freaks. In other words, American mass media was worse than I noticed.

This week I have been busy with a million things and I am on the road in Orlando, so I have not been following the news very much. I caught some bits about the war in Europe, but I have not had time to look at the inevitable commentary or watch the chattering skulls on television. What I know about what is happening comes from what I know about the history of the area, prior analysis and the many e-mails I have been getting from readers in Eastern Europe.

At the airport, they had CNN on and it was all war news, but I saw no one watching is so I followed the mob and ignored it too. I’ve been in a lot of airports during tranquil times and turbulent times and the airport crowd is always a good gauge of whether something is resonating with people. In the 2016 election cycle, people stopped to watch Trump news at the airport. Even people busy living their lives knew it was a big deal so they stopped and watched the man.

Putting the news out of my head meant I missed all the talk and analysis until I arrived in Orlando Thursday evening. The Uber driver asked me about it, but it turned out his reason had nothing to do with the news. He is just a huge Putin fans so this is like seeing his favorite sports team in the championship. He wanted to talk about it because it makes him feel good to talk about it. That said, his analysis would turn out to be the most sensible I’d hear that day.

After checking into the hotel, I decide to see what the news was saying about the great Slavic invasion of Europe. War is good television and the pioneer in modern war television was CNN. They are down on their luck these days and this is the sort of thing to boost their ratings, so I hit CNN first. Memories of the freak show from Dublin rushed into my mind as one lunatic after another came on to make sure they said “Keev” several times, rather than “kee-ev” like a normal person.

Luckily, MSNBC seemed to be in a commercial loop, so I broke free and went over to Fox News, which has fallen into an alternative reality. In this new reality, it is the year 2000 and the chicken hawks are at their zenith. Instead of Saddam Hussein as the next Hitler, it is Putin. They are all saying “Keev” now too. The amusing thing is that when these simpletons say it, they stumble, because they have not had enough time to practice saying this weird new word in front of the mirror.

Like the goofy English pundits on the BBC claiming to know the mind of Trump, the current pundits all claim to know the mind of Vladimir Putin. Of course, they tell us that he is the evil monster they need to justify the warmongering. You see, if Americans do not accept ten-dollar gasoline and breadlines, Putin will march all the way to Paris, just like you know who, in what always feels like yesterday for these people. You must sacrifice for their principles.

It really is a freak show. The one exception is Tucker Carlson, which is the great irony in all of this. The people trying to understand what is happening and maintaining healthy skepticism and objectivity are cast as mindless puppets of evil. The people suddenly saying “Keev” like they have contracted a new form of Tourette’s are the deep thinking, worldly servants of all that is holy. This is not propaganda. It is an alternative reality used to impose mass psychosis.

What is amazing about the Fox News coverage is it all sounds like the stuff you see on CNN and MSNBC. It is just various ways of repeating whatever the White House is saying, but with a hint of Biden criticism. They try to compare him to Neville Chamberlain when the opportunity arises. In other words, they are following the lead of the ratings losers, instead of the most popular man in the mass media. It just shows the real face behind those masks they wear.

One final observation about Fox News. Sean Hannity was never a guy working math problems in his free time, but he seems to have gotten dumber. He always looks like he is going to snap and fly into a Chris Farley-like tantrum. His show is angry stupid man interviews stupid people pretending to be smart. You have to wonder about the audience for such content. You can excuse people for wanting to see the Siamese twins or wolf-boy, but what is the excuse for watching Hannity?

There are many theories of the mass media. They usually revolve around the Orwellian propaganda angle. When you can look at it from the proper distance, you get the sense that maybe the real point is to fill the air with the sounds of weirdos and lunatics, so the sober voices cannot be heard. A guy like Tucker lives like a serious lecturer employed by the traveling circus. Even if you like his content, it is hard to appreciate it over the sound of freaks and carnies.

It is not entirely spontaneous, of course. You see that with the vapid repetition of the word “Keev” from these airheads. There are people behind the curtain injecting phrases and opinions into the system for the freaks to repeat. On the other hand, it is a system  that operates by the logic of people who think the purpose of life is to win the catchphrase contest each day. The mass media is the freak show populated with credentialed members of the managerial elite.

in any thriller movie – you can often go back to the beginning and see if there are clues as to what happens next. It would be interesting to go in a time machine 60 or 70 years in the past and see what clues there would be of the current order. I almost wonder if there were secret meetings of people basically planning things out.

I wasn’t aware of this information. Thanks Keep in mind that the adenovirus vaxxes are designed/ have evolved to insert dna into host cell genome. This appears to be a residual low level activity of the mRNA treatments. The fact is that sounds scary that something would change your dna but the common influenza virus operates this way. I remember being shocked that we have viruses popping dna in and out of our genomes when I learned this stuff back when. The majority of the mRNA is designed to be transcribed into protein. This protein causes the generation of antibodies.… Read more »

But this is not a retrovirus. This is an injection, which bypasses the initial mucosal, immune and inflamation defenses, and is a technology which is engineered to produce only the spike protein expression on cells. The whole point was that it was assured it would not produce reverse transcription effects. I am well aware of the mechanics of retroviruses, having done many years on clinical trial results for pharmaceuticals. Medical interventions that have potential genomic or germ line effects are generally incredibly difficult to approve and even for sort of things for cancer, the patients have lots of monitoring when… Read more »

Ja, after all of the hand-wringing about overwhelming hospitals and the medical system if you didn’t take the jab(s), and now it looks as if we may get to see that very issue in spades due to the broad masses of people who allowed themselves to be stampeded to get jabbed. I would, to some degree, be enjoying a huge blast of Schadenfreude right about now, but my wife, stepson, and daughter in law all were coerced into getting the jab by their respective work situations. So instead, I must now pray that they do not suffer consequences from that.… Read more »

“Legal” immunity is meaningless. It means about as much as the piece of toilet paper that the Constitution is written on.

I don’t have a good feel for germ line effects. Plus I’m no virologist. My understanding is that the danger lies mostly in peripheral tissue. If a randomly inserted dna knocks out a tumor suppressor gene or two, in one liver cell you got cancer. Of course, vastly over-expressing a single untested protein could have cardiotoxic or nephrotoxic effects.

Its difficult to know. But that is what trials are for. Its the potential that is concerning as rapid uptake suggests lots of potential issues unless its actively designed to do this. Especially as the vex appears to travel quite widely in the body. They must have had data around the earlier related animal studies on the transcription, so its very confusing all the vex were based on the same technology, and no actual attenuated virus (except the Chinese one). I suspect we are going to find out, but lots of separate data vectors seem to be pointing the same… Read more »

As somebody much under 35 my risk from the virus is 0. Something like between 1/12,000,000 and 1/5,000,000. Limit x (age) -> 0, y (risk) = 0 type of thing. Without even getting into the morality of coercion or potential side effects, there is absolutely no need for any somebody under 40 to take the jab unless they are 800lb and have terminal cancer. You don’t take cholesterol medication when you have normal cholesterol.

Best bet is to try to maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle prior to old age and maintain it as long as one can. Aging affects us all, some more than others, but a healthy diet and minimum 3x a week exercise (both cardio and weight lifting) can ameliorate the worst immediate effects.

COVID has a much higher death rate among the elderly and the Vax reduces it quite a bit. If I was old I would probably get the vax. That said I don’t care whether somebody gets it or not – if you think it’s the poison jab or not needed then don’t get it.

The mandates, coercion, vaxxing young people, and lies about Vax effectiveness are far more criminal in my opinion.

I don;t actually see that the injection even helps at old age, Its just a statement people have internalized.

There is no control data left, so how can we know?
The early data is very suspect.

People forget that, as from the Princess cruise ship only 20% tested positive at all, with very few deaths.

This I would take as odds every day vs 100% chance of being exposed to an unknown intervention that has effectively 0 safety data and a history of issues in earlier related animal studies.

I just don’t see the tradeoff being remotely sensible.

Great take. It was immediately clear to me that Putin had to take the entire country to ensure that Zelensky was finished.

Portable crematoriums. That’s a hoot, or would be a hoot if I didn’t know a significant percentage of Joe Normie out there believed crap like this. Hell, in the first Gulf War we had Congressional testimony (later learned to be from the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador) about Iraqi soldiers tossing babies out of incubators in Kuwait hospitals and packing the incubators up for shipment to Iraq.

From JHK’s:

“Luhansk and Donesk voted to separate from Ukraine in 2014 when the Ukrainian government was overthrown. Ukraine has retained them for eight years by military force, assisted by the United States and using, in part, American weapons.

So America believes that the LNDR democratic vote should be disregarded as if was never held and that they should be subjugated by military force and remain as part of Ukraine against their will”

Pol’s will do anything as they are simply amoral. Handing out weapons—especially to a populous with perhaps *no* understanding in the use of firearms, much less tactics, is criminal in nature. This will have the effect of making every civilian a *legal military target* of any Russian soldier in the field.

Perhaps this is all PR BS, but if those weapons really are being passed out without trained personnel to guide folks in their effective use, it is a crime worthy of hanging.

Because Russia *probably* doesn’t have the manpower or the financial power to occupy the Baltics. It would be an enormous financial and manpower burden for the Russian state.

He doesn’t have to occupy, just smash up anything that moves and maybe build a naval base. The west has already shown its tail once. Every time we huff, puff, and show our tail, we grow weaker.

Exert political influence over the Baltics, sure, but occupy? He seem(ed) smart enough not to want that headache. If he were to threaten anywhere else, I would have thought Belarus. But now is the perfect time to pursue any territorial ambition, when the Western world is utterly weak and ineffective and at war with its own people, so who knows? I know better than to make any predictions.

It’s hard to make predictions, especially about the future.

I read somewhere–can’t remember where–and only one time, but it was an article in which the writer said that Putin is terminally ill. If so, he might prefer to go out in a blaze of glory. That’s not hard to imagine.

Belarus has already had a recent attempted color revolution which was no doubt with much Russian assistance defeated (as did Kazakhstan), and is moving out sharply toward a deeper relationship with Russia. The Russians don’t have to convince the Belorussians, let alone invade them.

Up front, I won’t pretend to know Putin’s intentions, either. That written… His goals seem to two-fold. The first is to reunite the historic Russian people into one polity. I still expect a partition of the Ukraine, and Western countries to accept it in time. Putin has gone much bigger than even I expected, but, again, the endgame seems to install his own puppet and then annex those areas historically Russian. There also is an element of payback here for Serbia and Kosovo but that gets into the weeds. The second goal is to eliminate the Western threat on the… Read more »

NATO is sending weapons to Ukraine. Its being spun as “individual countries” but its really NATO. And they’ve invited both Sweden and Finland to “consultations” about European Security in the upcoming NATO summit. In response Russia’s spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry threatened “serious military consequences” to both Sweden and Finland if they joined NATO. FWIW Sweden has been alarmed for the past several years at Russia’s ambition. I am sure Putin would like to close off the Baltic Sea to action by the hostile US and UK.

@ Whiskey: Good post. It’s true about Sweden. There have been several “incidents” in recent years.

That’s why he rejected the Donbass “twins” repeatedly after they declared independence and asked numerous times to be annexed. The Ukraine is a poor country with dreary demographics, and annexing any of it would be ruinously expensive to the Russian state.

The Baltics are not historically Russian territories. If Putin’s primary goal is to reconstitute historical Russia–and I think it is–the Baltic states simply won’t come into the picture. Ukraine and Byelorus–that’s it.

The programming still works on the civnat brain and motor functions but it’s not working on their hearts this time. I think even they are finally wising up.

maybe. but imo the civnats are being whipsawed and just don’t know what they are supposed to think or do; like a bee hive without a queen.

Maybe the coof programing actually inoculated them from something real for a change?

“Kee-ev” = Pro Russia, I heart Putin “Keeve” = Pro Ukraine, I love Globalism Everything is political posturing, status signaling just like with the covid propaganda. The mockingbird agitprop of converged globohomo is totally above board with their NLP. They knew it was creepy, jarring, and strange to drop a whole new pronunciation on the sheeple. So leave it to the NYT to clear things up. This in a “story” on why we are hearing the new, Globohomo approved pronunciation. “Note: Days after this article was published, The New York Times changed its style of spelling for the capital of… Read more »

‘Keev’ sounds like it would be a byproduct of cheese making, or that stuff potheads scrape out of their grinders.

That would be “kief” which is the simplest form of hashish, made by simply rubbing the pollen/trichomes off of the flowering buds.

I call it Kneb, because that’s what the Cyrillic letters look like to this English speaker. And who makes these decisions- who decided on ‘Mumbai’ and ‘Kolkata’, and ‘Beijing’?

And, why don’t we say München, Wien, or Yuteborry? Inquiring minds want to know!

Well, there you go. The explanation for why all of a sudden it’s “Kyiv ” instead of “Kiev,” and why all the NPCs on television are saying “Keeeeev” all of a sudden will be “The New Thing That Based5.0 Learned Today” for 02/25/2022. Thanks, Screwtape.

It also explains why the talking heads on RT are still saying “Kee- Yev.”

In Russian the pronunciation is more like Kee-eff because final consonants become their unvoiced equivalent.

The date change suggests they sort of had this thing prepared in advance then no?

Seems a bit too coincidental.

I asked a Russian here at work. He tells me that Kee-ev is how a Russian would pronounce it and and Keev is how a Ukrainian would.
So it is indeed virtue/political signaling…
It makes me wonder how does a pro-Trudeau Canadian pronounces “Sieg Heil”?

The multi-decade success of Sean Hannity as a media star is a mystery. He’s either being blackmailed, blackmailing somebody else, or sold his soul to Old Scratch.

There are Youtubers with more talent and charisma.

Hannity is the vehicle prototype of the civnat who is free to think about everything but the JQ, but the car doesn’t really function all that well and locks up and spits out some awful gas

I knew a guy who was the anchor on the 10 o’clock news in our mid-market, midwestern metro area- a good guy, very handsome, with a good sense of humor- my pals and I would throw a couple of big bashes every year; (he came to one of our Halloween parties dressed as himself- I guess you’d have had to be there) he’d usually show and get LOTS of female attention. At one such event I overheard the following: Sweet Young Thing: “It must be interesting to be a journalist.” Anchor Guy: “I suppose so- you should probably find one… Read more »

I too noticed that the Fox News coverage of the Russo-Ukrainian war was a time warp. A parade of NeoCons, some not seen since 2007, made their appearance. They even brought out old clips of Charles Krauthammer while the alien Bret Baer nearly came to tears watching the “brilliant ” NeoCon Number One bloviate..

What’s the old saying “Stop The World i Want To Get Off?”

“They even brought out old clips of Charles Krauthammer”

That’s surreal and literally made me laugh. What’s up next? Reagan clips?

Trust in the system and its propaganda organs has fallen to all-time depths, not in the least because of these sort of absurdities.

That is hilarious, I wish I would have seen it. I have read Fox News has recovered some of their viewer share since the dip after the 2020 election. This could backfire on them. Even with the Biden bashing, I can’t see normies getting worked up about Ukraine.

The “news” Is like so many movies that are remakes of 20th century films. Nobody has an original bone in his body anymore.

FoxNews is and has been for a long time a rest home for old (physically and mentally) neocons. They’re playing one last game of bridge with Putin’s Russia First move. I predict there will not be that much hand-wringing when China moves on Taiwan, since most of them probably have financial interests on the mainland.

Lots of people have made such mistakes. As cruel as your put down was—and it was pretty low, even for you Karl—let me interject what you don’t know, or refused to add in your put down of Kruathammer. Krauthammer broke his neck while in Med School. He painfully recovered and returned to Med School—a paraplegic—to complete his studies and graduate. This I believe was a first it’s kind. Most people I know, myself—and I bet that includes yourself—would have given up and become a ward of the State. Really Karl, show some thought and perhaps a little class before you… Read more »

i stand by my comments. am well aware of the circumstances of his injury. i just don’t revere cripples per se. to me, he was a deceiver and a traitor. perhaps such things don’t matter to you. why do you think so highly of him, because he was on tv? try not to be so sentimental, it clouds your thinking.

I used to kind of like Hannity back in the old days when he was the “conservative” side of Hannity & Colmes. I enjoyed him taking on that insufferable leftist fag. But over the intervening years he’s gotten high on his own fumes – I can’t stand listening
