RIP Twitter - SM Review-Preview 79

Frogtwitter suffered mass suspensions this week. The grandest of names like BronzeAgePerv, Menaquinone4, KeldoryThePious and "Ya Boy Frogey" all went down. It might be quite easy to laugh at these guys, but consider their ability to move the needle on things. I no longer believe in coincidences, and I also believe in one event sparking others. Once I saw Outsideness suspended, I knew the list of accounts to be terminated that was shared on /pol was real.

We are pushing the needle. The media is so desperate to come up with an excuse for why they lost rather than admit their worldview sucks that they claimed a handful of bloggers are quietly whispering in Bannon's ear. If Nick Land were truly doing that, he would have found a way to upload as an AI into a computer to be on-call for Bannon and Trump at moment's notice. We still do have an effect though. It is a different space for elites to play in or explore.

It is not just philosophy or governance but meme combat. Mena was recently retweeted by Ann Coulter. Now Queen Ann has a follower named Donald Trump. This means Trump saw the Mena tweet, which mocked the idea of what the American deep state is. It is not cool guys with sniper rifles in suits. It is doughy, egghead goofs like Evan McMullin. This sounds dumb and inconsequential, but it is not. Mockery is one of the greatest weapons at anyone's disposal, but especially a crew of people that have difficulty coordinating against a totalitarian regime.

The coordination problem is a big one. This applies to not just coups but simply creating dissident blocs. The progs are smart by controlling language and placing words off limits because if you cannot formulate the arguments against them, how can you signal and create dissident space. This is why memes work. This is also why comedy works. Mena's juxtaposition of expected versus reality for deep state is a good morale booster, and a reminder that USG has grown soft. Assad still lives. A decade ago, he would be toast. Qadaffy was toast.

McMullin, a former CIA agent, was legitimately a puppet for the Never Trump crowd and their forpol interventionist crowd to sabotage Trump's electoral chances. yes, a group of DC brainiacs used my Jeb Utah strategy, but for reals. While we mock McMuffin, it is important to note that CIA felt the need to join forces with GOP consultants and GOPe media to sabotage a domestic presidential candidate. That is unprecedented. That is also a bit scary.

I've found lightning enlightenment or instant realizations interacting with Nick Land and the men of Frogtwitter. I have become well acquainted with some of Frogtwitter. They are good men and smart. They are good resources for lifting, diet, maintaining proper T levels and not touching receipts. If there is a blend of autism and genius that is funny and inspiring, they are the right mix. RIP Frogtwitter. I know they will carry on in another form. For this weekend, pour one out for the fallen comrades of Frogtwitter.

RIP Twitter. No matter what happens going forward, it is never going to be the same.

-------------------------

Last week I wrote how the system can use Saudi Arabia as a follow up about the petrodollar so that people did not think it was a one way street. USG can use them and does so when it is unsavory for direct action. There was no Weimerica Weekly due to a business trip I had.

This week I will write on the Left's cultural Catch-22 or advertising poz. There is a method to the poz madness. Weimerica Weekly is up in the air, as some of you have been feeding me incredibly interesting stuff to look into.

WW1 - Verdun

I've previously posted on Verdun, asking if France itself died on that battlefield. For roughly all of 1916, the French fought nonstop at Verdun to hold the old fort. It was a battle meant to bleed them dry. It was also a battle won by the French and lost by the Germans not for what they did at Verdun, but for the colossal sacrifices the Brits made at the Somme.

The Wikipedia sections are pretty terrible. Verdun was not just to bleed the French white. Please read books on the planning involved and strategy. Verdun was planned because Ludendorff was the German leader desperately searching for a final big victory. This search would become more frantic as the war dragged on and Russia was knocked out but America was still slow to get men over to the continent or even commit them to fighting.

There were talks between the two sides to end hostilities, but the missing piece for the Central Powers was the big win to then point to and proclaim the upper hand. The Allies were just waiting the Central Powers out, starving them as much as possible, and hoping America would arrive with fresh meat.

Verdun was that chance for a big victory. A win at Verdun would allow for the Germans to sit in a prime position to threaten Paris. The French did have mutinies on their hands in 1917, and this all would have been far more precarious for the Allies and France specifically if the Germans had won at Verdun. America would not enter the war until 1917, when President Wilson who ran on a platform of 'He kept us out of the war', would enter the war immediately after his inauguration.

The war would drag on for two more years, killing millions more and destroying the sociopolitical infrastructure of Europe. There are still bodies at Verdun one hundred years later. Do not forget these men. There are cemeteries that honor the dead, but no cemetery for old Europe itself. A hundred years ago, Verdun was over but the world was still waiting.

Beyonce's Whitest Moment

On the last Weimerica Weekly, I had a short bit discussing the weird Beyoncé performance at the Grammys. I went into the weird costume, weird fan reaction and just how Illuminati it all was. Lost in the stupidity is the realization a 35 year old mom is out there in an outfit Cher would have paused to wear when pregnant. This is ridiculousness. It all is carefully crafted though so they thought it would work.

Beyoncé has been carefully managed by her parents. It is interesting to see her take the political turn like in Super Bowl 50 with her bandolier sporting, Black panther inspired look. She had playfully played a non-racial performer with R&B influenced pop to quickly dabble and inject the latest fad in black music into her pop. Smart move for a musical genre that changes over quickly.

She has also played a really odd game with the blonde hair for her entire career. Black women do not throw her under the bus or rip on her as they did with Whitney Houston a generation ago for selling out or playing to White America. Possibly after a generation of half black singers and movie stars as sex symbols, they were happy a black girl from America with two black parents was held up high.

It is curious since the black female community has gone to the 1-drop idea for claiming someone is black, but they also strictly enforce the idea of blackness. While Rachel Dolezal is joked on for being transracial, no one bats an at Beyoncé's blonde hair and the amount of lightening they do on her for magazine photos. It's as unrealistic an ideal to chase for black women as 5'10" size 2 models are for white women.


STRONG BLACK WOMAN!
Her whitest moment though would have to be the video for "Dance For You". If you have been to a strip club since it came out, you have heard this song. The song sounds guitar heavy like how Michael and Janet Jackson would smartly put a guitar heavy song on each album that would be a hit due to their white fans really taking to it (Black Cat, Dirty Diana, Beat It). When it came out, I was shocked it was Beyoncé and shocked how white rocking it sounded. The video cemented my take on the 'pitch' for the song.



We get the influences. This is lifting from old Hollywood, film noir. This is at least honest about it unlike how the choreography for the video "Sing Ladies (Ring On It)" stole directly from Fosse. How is this her whitest moment? She dresses and has her hair like this often. That does not do it nor the setting. What does it is the man in the video is white. The video director could easily have cast a brother in the hat with a toothpick in his mouth, but they did not.

As an aside, the backup dancer in the white top and black short shorts/bustier thing is a fantastic female to watch (4:02 to 4:30 is prime). This actually feeds into the entire bit as the unspoken rule of backup dancers is that if a female lead has them, they cannot be thinner than her. Beyoncé breaks this as well while holding attention as lead female, capturing the white male gaze.

No one mocked Beyoncé for it. This hits at another truth of American culture. Non-whites can try to replicate, appropriate or pretend to embody an element of white culture without criticism while the reverse is open to non-stop mockery. Consider Rebecca Black's god awful "Friday" rap song thing where everyone from Tosh.0 to normies mocked her terrible song and terrible lyrics... while conveniently leaving out the fact that the black guy that showed up to rap a verse actually wrote all of the wretched lyrics.

This was her whitest moment. This will never be reached by her ever again. Looking at the collection of black female performers the entertainment industry uses now, they all seem to hit 50% Euro on the 23andMe score, so a truly black woman reaching for this would be tough to not just attempt but achieve without mockery.

Her career though reveals a deeper truth about the minority women that you come into contact with, and even the minority men who 'make it' in America. Everyone is as desperate as possible to look white or be accepted by whites while maintaining their minority status for the proper checkmark for the media, school and even corporate game.

Flynn Fulfills Rand's & Snowden's Warnings

After enough ink has been published on the Michael Flynn resignation, it is a good reminder that we do not know anything. The FBI cleared him and found no collusion or wrongdoing. It was more poor handling by Flynn and whichever of the inner circle pushed for a forced resignation. We do not know. What we do know is that the intelligence community is showing its fangs. What we do know is that Senator Rand Paul and Edward Snowden warned Americans that a moment like this would come.

As a first term senator, Rand Paul pointed out the Patriot Act's possibility to be turned on Americans. He brought focus to the idea of USG droning Americans. Senator Paul mentioned unlawful detention and how USG could lock an American away that it deemed a terror threat. Terror was being used as an excuse to wipe away constitutional rights for Americans. Rather than strict border control and deportations in 2001 (Fortress America), USG decided to leave the doors open but install a surveillance system that collected everything and police state (Open Air Prison America). Senator Paul warned this could be turned on Americans.

Some former NSA guys warned that NSA and therefore the intelligence community was collecting everything from everyone at all times. It was tinfoil hat talk though per the media and Joe Sixpack. That all changed when the Edward Snowden, wearing the Weak Chic liberal glasses but being kind of prole since he didn't have a BA, confirmed every tin foil hatters' worst nightmares. This was summer 2013 right after President Obama gave a speech at Ohio State's commencement not to listen to those that say don't trust the government. With the aid of Glenn Greenwald, the story unfolded how, who and what the spy agencies do with all of those communications. Even the beloved tech giants that said "Don't Be Evil" were caught in the web. The fear was using it on Americans. using it on any threat to the system's control.

Most Americans yawned and stuffed their face with Doritos, but others felt vindicated for their concerns or realized the prison we are in. In February of 2017, Americans finally got to see a public display of the amazing system of surveillance and the legal channels allowing it. NSA Michael Flynn had a phone call monitored with a Russian official. It is not unusual for high ranking people to talk to foreign officials as they are coming into power, and this was in response to the Russian sanctions President Obama put into place as he exited the presidency. Flynn was a target the deep state wanted out.

Flynn was a threat to CIA and his desires to reform the intelligence community as well as air some intel that had been sat on for years like the OBL raid data. Who ordered the tap? Who signed off on the warrant? Because the media is in service to the permanent government, we will not learn that but instead learn only that Flynn spoke to Russians. The leaks were illegal. The leaks hinted at things, but there was no wrong doing per the FBI and the DNI. Flynn reacted to the whispers poorly, and then was gone immediately.

There is an even more evil bit here, and one journalists know in their black hearts they enjoy but would not admit. During Watergate, Bob Woodward acted as a conduit for information. Not for his stories but explicitly in his FBI source telling him something. Woodward could then tell Congressman, "I've heard..." and keep his source anonymous, but it also allowed the FBI to tell Congress things that it could not legally do. How? First Amendment protection. Witnesses were called explicitly due to Woodward prodding Senators and Congressmen.

Journalists have done this here. We get a limited leak and protection of the revealed data is guaranteed per the first amendment. Are the full transcripts released? No, of course not, the selective editing of whatever is wanted is released to frame the cathedral and polygon's opponent. Flynn falling for their bait was bad, but this is how they get you. They show you a sexy bare leg, and get you to pay for the hag attached. It is likely if they released the transcripts that the bare leg would be revealed to be nothing but a mannequin's leg, and there is nothing there.

Flynn fulfills Senator Paul's and Snowden's warnings. This is how threatened the system is. Spengler wrote about this and added how CIA blocked one of Flynn's deputies. CIA broke the law. They must be dealt with. Grab Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, connect the anti-war Left and isolationist Right, and clear out the unaccountable for what they have done for decades, but most recently in Syria. Drain the Swamp. If it turns out to be impossible with a media savvy billionaire at the helm, all Americans will have far harder actions to execute.

Unplug - SM Review-Preview 78

It is fun watching the left, high and low, lose it. Maybe not the low as much because they have other things to do, tv to watch, etc. but the mass hysteria on the Left is a joy to witness. The high engages in it for future fundraising purposes and grandstanding to their base. The political signaling fools on Facebook are rabid, and this is a continuation of their election year insanity. It would be wise to take a step back on the right and consider that if it lost, similar talk would be happening on the right.

Maybe not the cuck right. As the Flight 93 Election essay laid out, we know a loss would have ended whatever we think we can salvage in the current regime. Supreme Court would have flipped and then subsequently become a Warren 2.0 heavy liberal court. Clinton's amnesty would have been immediate and it would have been over. There is a non-Muslim refugee program that she would have easily instituted: Venezuela. You would be preparing for new political arrangements.

As an aside: remember when many of you said Trump would never do anything about legal immigration, and immediately he is doing so? Just wanted to throw that out there.

The far right or the dissident right would have been scapegoating the cuck right crowd. All of those Gary Johnson and Evan McMullin #nevertrump voters and pundits would have faced serious heat. Had Trump scooped just 25% of Johnson and McMullin voters in Minnesota, he would have won the state. Imagine had that been the same case in PA, MI and WI. Looking at Gary Johnson's totals from 2012 to 2016 in those states approximates the GOP defectors in number.

Each Clinton action would have been met with anger, frustration and elevated emotions. Now it would be rightfully so since it would cement the end of any voice for the right. It is different than the left flipping out over simple nominations of individuals, but the elevated emotions would be the same. The secession movement discussed in California would be discussed with Texas and other red states as the object.

It would be advantageous to step away from the computer. This seems hypocritical as this is a blog and therefore online, but disengaging from the nonstop outrage cycles is good for you and for perspective. Decline is still around you. Henry Dampier made a good point that the left, or far left, says punch a Nazi and not kill a Nazi because they need that far right boogeyman. It is similar to how Muslims killing priests is really just what the white progressives would do if only they had the courage. They need faux Nazis to hold up as an opponent, as a fundraising blurb line (seriously, "Help me stop Nazis" will rake in coin), and to have as a foil for their righteous causes and crusades.

We must remain nimble and aware of current events and trends. We also need to read old books, network and start planning for the all possibilities. Laughing at the left is good, but if we get sucked into the online mindspace of "Event - pick side - shout!", we will fall into the problem that 'politics is the mindkiller'. The left uses politics to make up for their shitty lives. We do need to be engaged but remember that life is out there and for us to live. Organize, watch, and live your life.

Last week I wrote about the birth of the petrodollar and how we still live with its consequences. Weimerica Weekly was on the way that we have turned every single human relationship into a business relationship. Unfortunately, it is not lifetime employment old timey business but today's transactional nature of employment. A disposable relationship for a disposable society.

This week I write about the cultural catch-22 the left is in. I have to take a week off from Weimerica Weekly due to a business trip that I am currently on far from home.

Near Term Immigration Flashpoint

France looks ready to boil over and kick off the EU happenings. It may not just be EU sitused. Immigrants are used as weapons by the elite so who is to say other flanks or fronts will not flare up? There was recent immigration media focus in Arizona over ICE actually doing the job it is meant to do and enforce immigration law. An immediate protest broke out. That protest also had a New York Times reporter right on hand to record it all. The illegal's fourteen year old daughter even 'wrote' an essay in Teen Vogue about the ordeal. Quelle surprise! Arizona is a frontier area, but not in the wild west sense. Arizona is the frontier, the border or the front lines for the immigration conflict and looming civil conflict.

This is not surprising considering the moves of Gov. Jan Brewer in the recent past. In all the talks of what Trump will do with regards to immigration, no one stated the very obvious but concerning issue that someone would arm the illegals so that they could fight back against the federal agents enforcing the law. A Mexican official even took it one step further and said Mexico could unleash the cartels if Trump pushed hard enough. This is the consequence of an open border. Cartels operate throughout America, with the Sinaloas using Chicago as their US base, but they operate day and night in Arizona moving product.

Who has sovereignty? If they can enforce their will without consequences, the cartels do? If the government can, they do? This could be as simple as leftist activists handing guns to illegals. Because of the odd stew that is the border area, agents of chaos can play around and hide behind one another. The cartels could easily arm illegals under guide of activism. Activists can easily align with cartels to arm illegals. Leftists aligned with domestic terrorists throughout the late '60s and into the '70s. From a deontological point of view, supplying weapons to criminals is the right thing to do for a lefty foot soldier. Forget the consequences of armed conflict and a state or nation turned into a third world hellhole, what satisfies the need for holiness at this moment? A perverse possibility is lefty activists unknowingly arming cartel members or becoming a new source of weapons for the cartels.

Arizona has even seen stand offs in recent history between Feds and peaceful protestors. The Bundy Ranch Standoff in 2014 was an interesting. People on the ground later trickled back saying that there were moments not just of armed men Bundy vs. Feds that were tense, but local law enforcement vs. Feds that were tense. This not only becomes an issue of who is facing off with who, but who has the first victim to set a narrative. Recall that Kent State was not just about that afternoon, but the violence by protestors in the leading days, yet what does everyone remember? Note that Americans supported the Guard in initial polls, but that has been whitewashed by prog historians.

This is an unknown unkown. No one knows how this is going to play out, but uncertainty breeds chaos. What is known is that Attorney General Sessions did say he was going to go after cartels. President Trump did say he would aid Mexico if they needed help with cartels. If an entire reorientation of US military muscle and focus is going to be on the border and against the cartels, then crafting a narrative about the need to clean up the cartels can offer a tailwind to the illegal immigration crackdown on our border. A hypothetical America that spent 2001-2016 cleaning up the border and working with the Mexican government to destroy the cartels would be much safer than the current America that spent that era adventuring in the Middle East.

El Chapo is in US custody for the first time despite multiple arrest and escapes in Mexico. Note that the Brooklyn detention center he is in is a temporary federal facility. He is meant to go elsewhere. As head of the Sinaloas, he has led the Mexican cartel that has quietly been in agreement with the US federal government for the last fifteen years. Exposing these links would be a tremendous way to drain the swamp as well as push the need for border security. There can be no freedom without safety and no safety without enforcement of the law.

If immigration enforcement as well as lefty resistance heats up, the actions in Arizona and the rest of the Southwest will be potential flashpoints.
