Social Matter - Not All Geopolitical Problems Are America’s Fault

New essay is up at Social Matter and it is on a major pain point for America that you know what, we're not to blame for!

Is the kingdom going to fall? Will the kingdom take down its whole region in a flurry of war? The kingdom in question is Saudi Arabia. Probably not, but the fun has kicked up ten notches for them. Iran has some breathing room, and suddenly it’s a Shia-Sunni/Iran-KSA shouting match each week in the news. Iranian missiles can certainly reach across the Persian Gulf and knock out oil fields. The KSA has had bad press, as well, since now people feel open to discuss KSA-ISIS links or even ISIS being a proto-KSA. Blame can be spread all around, but we can thank the British for the high position the Saudis hold in our global society.

It's amazing that America is not to blame for this one. We inherited a bad situation that the Brits decided to put into place. Go read it there.

Trump's No Show + SM Review-Preview 31

How much fun is it watching Trump reveal the circus that politics is? Last week it was Trump going before evangelicals and Christian voters and saying "2 Corinthians" and openly saying "that's what you guys call it/wanna hear", which while being accused of pandering actually reveals how phony pandering to Christian voters is. It was beautiful.

This week Trump showed how it's the media that picks our leaders as well as the Inner-Outer Party set up. Trump says he will not show, and the cuckservative crowd said, "Oh he's afraid of Megyn Kelly." Uh no, he's copying Reagan. Fox would not bend to his wishes, Trump would have to bend to their demands. The media is in charge buddy. What was he really avoiding? He was also dodging the fact that the Outer Party GOP had asked several progressives to ask questions at the final pre-primaries debate. On what planet should a party ask members of the other party to ask questions during an important debate. Clinton is not going to take any question from legitimate Rubio, Cruz or Rand advocates.

It is a circus. It is a show. It is reality television. Few truly want to admit it. As much as the system and your right thinking friends and family want to bitch, the show just was crashed by the longest running reality star in America.
-----------------------------------------------------

Last week, I wrote on the use of phony experts in the media think pieces people read everyday. These are not the writers themselves but the cited authorities who mouth progressive standard lines that back up how the progs want you to think. The episode of Weimerica Weekly that aired was my first interview. We had a talk about drugs, the underclass, cycles of poverty, mass incarceration, and if there is anyway out of it all. Hipster Cop was her name, and I thank her for her time.

WW1: One Man's Letters Home

I found this and felt it worthy of sharing. This is just one man's notes home to his wife and daughter. His name was Wilfrid Cove. He was a gunner in the trenches.

Tuesday 14 November 1916  
My Darling Ethel, 
I hope you have received my birthday present, but in case you haven’t here’s again wishing you many many happy returns of your birthday. It is the first of your birthdays that we have been apart since you were sweet 17 that I can remember. I hope it will be the last. Heaven send that by your next birthday – or mine come to that – this terrible war will be over & that we may both be spared & united on each of our birthdays and those of our dear little kiddies & for many years to come. It causes me many regrets and much sorrow when I remember that my selfishness has more than once caused you unhappiness and I sincerely hope that my future conduct will make you realise that notwithstanding my shortcomings I do love you with all my heart and realise I have one of the best wives in the world.  
I can now quite understand the Late Lord Kitchener’s preference for bachelors as soldiers. He must have realised, altho’ a bachelor himself, that it is not the coward’s fear of death but the fear that by death many a good soldier may thus be prevented from rejoining the wife & family he loves so much. I have just that very feeling myself at times when the shells are dropping all around us and the air is whistling with them.  
Goodnight my darling. Longing and hoping for a letter from you tomorrow. 
What happened to the English language might be your first reaction, but here is his letter to his daughter one month later.
Monday 4 December 1916  
My dear little Marjorie, I have only just received your little letter which Mamma sent with hers on Nov 19th. Do you remember that you asked me to be home for Xmas? I only wish I could but there are many more soldiers in our Battery who are more entitled to the Xmas leave than I am, so am afraid you will have to do without Daddy this Xmas.  
Santa Claus will come as usual. I think your writing and dictation just splendid, and your drawings are getting funnier than ever. I have pinned your crayoned tulips on the wall of my dug-out bedroom beside your photograph. Daddy is as comfortable as possible. I expect even you would get tired enough to go soundly asleep in this dug-out. It would be a change from your pink bedroom.  
And how is little Daffodil getting on? I expect you quite enjoy the time when Mamma reads you more about her. It was Mamma’s book when she was a girl like you. Write again soon, dear, + send another crayoning to help cover the sand bags.  
Heaps of love & kisses, which you must share with Mamma and Betty.
From your ever loving Daddy 
This picture was found in his breast pocket when he was killed in 1917. The numbers of WW1 can make one lose sight of the humanity.


Here is the drawing his daughter sent to him as he fought at the front.


Never forget.

Social Matter - Weimerica Weekly Episode 10

Episode 10 of Weimerica Weekly is up. This episode starts a new phase for the show. I managed to get an interview. There will be more scattered throughout the year.
I interview a law enforcement officer that I named "Hipster Cop". She has seen crime in small towns and in a big city. We discuss heroin, the underclass, the mass incarceration issue, and the issue of generational criminality and poverty. Whatever you already estimate, you do not know how much money we spend just to maintain the criminal underclass.

Please do listen. This one is roughly 35 minutes, as I wanted to lob some extra questions outside the scope of drugs and law enforcement at my guest.

Money and Economics Links

Is the world of money coming to an end? Sure feels like it. Last year, high yield tanked, and this year, the equity markets are tanking.

Let's talk about fake fixes and fines that never seem to change anything. Anyone know where the billions and billions (supposedly $144 billion) in fines the big banks and lenders have paid have gone? Is it all a charade? As the author notes, even just splitting $50 billion between the 10 million home owners would be $5K, so why has there not been a single article in any news outlet about relief for homeowners hurt by the financial crisis? We all know if there had been any good story the media would have trumpeted it to boost Obama.

Confirming suspicions, all tuition increases since 1987 can trace back to government lending. As a part of the increases, I still stand by my alternative theory that the elite schools foreign students getting a discount due to the drop in the dollar around 2000 caused elite schools to jack up costs since in foreign currency terms, the tuition stayed the same. This created a herd like move.

What's declined? I was asked that at work recently. I usually like to use the "where can you walk today vs 1955 in safety", but I point to the late '90s as an obvious peak in economic power. More proof rolls in as the US is no longer in the top 10 for most prosperous nations. The elite and the Left want to keep stuffing semi-literate 3rd worlders into this declining nation, which makes absolutely no sense.

Is a break up of TBTF banks possible without an explicit break up? Tom Michaud believes so. It is an interesting argument but it is that regulators and the Dodd-Frank rules will force the TBTF banks to break up on their own. This seems hard to believe in our era of regulatory capture. How are regulators going to enforce the laws? As noted above, are the settlements and fines all phony? Where does the money go? They can't even show us that, and that should be a slam dunk PR move.  For all his talk, the TBTF banks still own a 60% share of total banking assets in America. As Michaud states, JPMorganChase is a trillion dollars bigger. Without a cleaning out of derivatives, the TBTF will remain as they are.

I could link to a myriad of "WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH CHINA" essays and articles. China has gone after 1500 corrupt cronies, changed their one child policy, seen the yuan added to the SDR basket and is experiencing massive outflows of money. The hard landing is coming as many experts say. Truth is, no one dealt with the mess from the American financial crisis of 2008. We can only kick the can so far down the road.

#ArrestSoros

George Soros is the supervillain of our era. With the money, global view and manipulation of geopolitics, his profile is much more like a Bond villain than a supervillain. There are plenty of politically active billionaires. Politics is their sport, controlling the lives of millions and contracts of large governments is fun. Soros takes everything to a new degree as he openly confirms the conspiracies that involve him, and his money seems to be everywhere. A short while back, there was a hashtag that that sought to highlight his criminality, #ArrestSoros. This is not just an empty slogan but a doable proposition.

Arrest Soros and charge him under the RICO statutes. RICO is the set of laws that allowed the Feds to go after the Mob. These laws are not purely for mafia organizations as they apply to any network that engages in crime as defined per the collection of RICO eligible crimes. RICO allows for people at the head of organizations to be charged and held culpable for crimes committed by members of their organizations. They can either order them to perform the act or assist them in performing the act. Soros here would be assisting through his wonderful ability to pay for everything. Attempting or feigning to attempt to solve the Wall Street problem, prosecutors have even considered charging Wall Street organizations under the RICO statutes.

Take a look at the offenses that trigger RICO. #BlackLivesMatter protests have led to arson and robbery. People affiliated with #BlackLivesMatter have committed a myriad of crimes elsewhere. The acts of terrorism is a given, as no small town or large city wants BLM to come in for a weekend of loot 'n' shoot. Recall that he has funded #BlackLivesMatter, and despite the protestations, employees of one of his domestic organizations started BLM. Because his bussed in protestors were the troublemakers per the peace loving locals, Soros funded protestors were the terror agents. Soros sits on top of that BLM empire. Like a mob boss, he is atop a hierarchy, and that does not make him any less culpable as Don Paulie would be for street tough Vinnie's actions. Soros' Open Society Foundation is a worldwide NGO that subverts nations and encourages chaos with a respectable face. They escape any punishment solely because Soros is aligned with and funds the progressive ruling elite.

That sounds weak, one might argue. It might be tough to prove. Let us go to an even better federal law that will surely come in handy to #ArrestSoros. Maybe not arresting him, but rendering him bankrupt and unable to fund the destruction of the West. Let an intrepid lawyer use the Alien Tort Statute. The Alien Tort Statue (ATS) allows for civil actions (torts) by foreigners for actions on foreign soil to be brought before US courts. There have been large corporations brought before the courts for this statute, and some have lost their cases or been forced to settle outside of court. Even officials are now openly fingering Soros as the man funding the immigrant invasion of Europe.

Think of the high court drama and made for television or the Internet testimony. The ATS is broad and the scope of crimes includes vague terms like "degrading treatment" and "crimes against humanity". Review some of the agreed"crimes against humanity like dehumanization, and think of the current refugee crisis. Uploaded Iphone videos alone should be enough evidence to build "Nuremberg 2: Merkel In A Noose". Europe has now seen spikes in crime in nations that have accepted refugees. It would be easy to list crimes but murders performed by immigrants and widespread gang rapes of migrant on native in an atmosphere of "convert to Islam or your kids will" taunts qualify as enough to bring a civil action.

How would anyone, even mighty Soros himself, withstand testimony from hundreds if not thousands of women beaten, raped and harassed by migrants that he has openly admitted to aiding in their quest for Europa? Tearful women crying over vague pain from breast implants caused multi-million dollar settlements and judgments against breast implant manufacturers. That was just over breast augmentation. This is rape, which in the feminist hysteria has been elevated to a crime where the steady message is no woman lies, all should be believed and rape culture must be stamped out. Soros being linked to the importation of rape culture would be global headlines for the length of the trial. He would seek a settlement. The key would be bringing forth so many plaintiffs that the billions of dollars he holds is reduced to millions. Penniless would be best.

After the ATS tort settlement, one would hit him with the RICO arrest. He would have less money to defend himself or buy off any politician or official who may protect him. One two punch. This will not happen. I know. No need to leave a silly comment to this post citing it. Soros is part of the ownership class for the Left, and a prominent shareholder in our thoroughly corrupt and bought government apparatus. Like a good Mob boss, Soros makes sure to have many channels and layers for spreading his influence, money and control. As long as progressives remain in control and the FIRE economy supreme, Soros will remain untouched. Without his money, what do they have? Without their system, how long does he last?

That apparatus, that system is showing its age. Built on lies, the normal management functions are no longer working as effectively. Speed and compressed timelines have shown their centralized institutions for the dinosaurs they are. Iphone recordings and social media websites have done enough to shake The Narrative. As the gap widens between the official story and reality, the credibility gap becomes a credibility gulf. When LBJ endured his credibility gap, the streets were full of protestors for everything and anything. The time for official channels for justice and dealing with our problem is nearing its end, if not already in the rearview mirror. The days of pitchforks, torches and extrajudicial measures are coming. Be careful though. If you need a fig leaf of due process, the above blueprint can be a means to #ArrestSoros.

Social Matter - The Expert Is A Prefabricated Voice

This week's essay at Social Matter is on the fake experts that are trotted out in news items to mold public opinion.
The media is sovereign. If not, they are near sovereign in our society. They have amazing power as the megaphone, the editor of the megaphone, and the user of the megaphone. What they choose to discuss matters, as it shapes the direction of society as energies are focused, applied, and in some cases, misallocated. Beyond that, the media tells us who are experts. They select whom to quote and deem an expert to reveal to you the story they are sharing. 
As the existing order goes thru strains as it grows or pains as it dies, we need to reveal just how fraudulent these men and women are who are selected by the authorities to tell us little people what to think. It is the same types, spouting the same garbage funded by the same puppetmasters. I hope you enjoy.

Note on NRX + AltRight Plus SM Review-Preview 30

What a week for the corner of the Internet that our wider sphere inhabits. Mr. Rick Wilson lost his head on national television and talked about the altright as if it were a bunch of Nazis that "masturbate to anime". First, Rick, I think the kids masturbate to hentai, but let us not split hairs since you lost your cool on national television and signal boosted a bunch of "nazis" in your words. Second, you idiot, you made people google "altright", and what they found was most likely not a bunch of nazis who masturbate to anime. It was guys like Richard Spencer, who keeps it classy and respectable.

Is the neoreactionary crowd or Hestia part of the Altright? How can it be if neoreaction is dead and if not dead, constantly the butt of jokes? Remember The Right Stuff mocking them with a picture. That made me laugh as they were sitting on an essay I sent them for over 2 months when all they had to do was "Ctrl+C and Ctrl V". Aren't I the last of the nrx guys writing consistently? Seriously, who is left? We're recruiting new contributors at Social Matter since I told Hadley that we could rename it "29 Sherman" it gets kind of sparse over there. Worry not, the Hestia guys have a lot of projects they are working on, and many of the names that disappeared from twitter are at work quietly to roll a bunch of shit out. There are active things going on that are incredible and top secret. It's moved beyond Internet poasting.

We share a common foe, Leftists or progs, but we have different approaches and tactics. We all want to destroy Leftists, which is why I like building bridges between different units, and why you will see me shoot a Weimerican pic and caption to Radix (Thanks Richard and Hannibal) and submit the occasional ((())) focused post to The Right Stuff. This is why I praise Roosh when he directs good things like "meet ups" but also roll my eyes at him or give him shit when he does stupid things like try to make the altright about him in a week where Rick Wilson utters it on national television. Build bridges.

If you wonder how the split can be defined, look at the change in "Theden". Theden went from a neoreactionary site with Wesley and I producing articles with an NRX slant, but then we got junked and it went down a definite Identitarian, fascist and altright path. The altright is definitely more fascist and seems intent on gaining control of the levers of power that have decayed. Even if you win an election, how would you push through any white identitarian programs when the entire (((media's))) immune system would respond? The media has been dying for the chance to have a bad guy like Trump do even the slightest thing pro-white for decades. They called Nixon and Reagan klansmen for Christ sake, yet Nixon okayed affirmative action items and Reagan granted amnesty.

Build new institutions. Network. Seek out people within the security and intellgience community who are sympathetic. The Russians call this the siloviki. Find out the interests behind the siloviki who do their dirty work and open work ($$$ like Peter Thiel, Erik Prince). This ship is going down, so play to that power. Just getting invited to a CNN for a 5 minute segment is not going to do shit. Winning an election is not going to change anything. Reagan was elected to repeal or change the Great Society and even New Deal. Didn't happen. The system was far more powerful than the voters on the right imagined.

Even Ronnie knew it. Go read his farewell speech. There is something deeper he knew by the end. Homeschoolers represent a community we should reach out to, and this excerpt from his speech is why. Plus, you already know that controlling education matters. I was a kid but Reagan's speech spoke to the 9 year old Alex P. Keaton I was. I love America. I hate the psychos in charge. Italics are added just so you know Reagan understood his failure.

An informed patriotism is what we want. And are we doing a good enough job teaching our children what America is and what she represents in the long history of the world? 
Those of us who are over 35 or so years of age grew up in a different America. We were taught, very directly, what it means to be an American, and we absorbed almost in the air a love of country and an appreciation of its institutions. If you didn't get these things from your family you got them from the neighborhood, from the father down the street who fought in Korea or the family who lost someone at Anzio. Or you could get a sense of patriotism from school. And if all else failed, you could get a sense of patriotism from the popular culture. The movies celebrated democratic values and implicitly reinforced the idea that America was special. TV was like that, too, through the mid-Sixties. Ahead, to the Nineties. 
But now we're about to enter the Nineties, and some things have changed. Younger parents aren't sure that an unambivalent appreciation of America is the right thing to teach modern children. And as for those who create the popular culture, well-grounded patriotism is no longer the style. 
Our spirit is back, but we haven't reinstitutionalized it. We've got to do a better job of getting across that America is freedom - freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of enterprise - and freedom is special and rare. It's fragile; it needs protection.
We've got to teach history based not on what's in fashion but what's important: Why the pilgrims came here, who Jimmy Doolittle was, and what those 30 seconds over Tokyo meant. You know, four years ago, on the 40th anniversary of D-Day. I read a letter from a young woman writing to her late father, who'd fought on Omaha Beach. Her name was Lisa Zanatta Henn, and she said, we will always remember, we will never forget what the boys of Normandy did. Well, let's help her keep her word. 
If we forget what we did, we won't know who we are. I am warning of an eradication of that - of the American memory that could result, ultimately, in an erosion of the American spirit. 
Let's start with some basics - more attention to American history and a greater emphasis of civic ritual. And let me offer lesson No. 1 about America : All great change in America begins at the dinner table. So tomorrow night in the kitchen I hope the talking begins. And children, if your parents haven't been teaching you what it means to be an American - let 'em know and nail 'em on it. That would be a very American thing to do.

I will gladly help the Altright fight the Left. We can split up the spoils afterwards. If you think infighting is bad now with just a touch of media attention, just imagine what it will be when money gets involved. Netwrok. Focus on the common enemy. Keep fighting, keep lifting, keep posting.

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

Last week I wrote on the SJW march through music in 2015. A special focus was on the story of Mark Kozelek. What they did to him reveals how the media inserts itself into a story and protects its privileged pet causes. Since posting, I reached out to Kozelek's PR man, and he said he shall keep me and Social Matter in mind if Mark Kozelek does grant interviews in 2016. When I first approached him in December, he did not think I was beign truthful that I would take Mark's side. He now knows some people will help him push back.

The Weimerica Weekly was on the silly and unnecessary danger the Left puts us in with its demands for egalitarian forced hires in safety jobs, the military and prisons.

This week on Social Matter, I will discuss how prefabriacted the experts are that you see quoted in the media about anything. A special focus is on the current European Immivasion issue. Weimerica Weekly will also be my first interview, which is with a cop about incarceration, the war on drugs and the underclass. Hopefully, February is going to be a month of interviews from me on Weimerica Weekly.

WW1: Trench Clubs












Oh the trench warfare could bring out primal warfare. Bayonet a man. Watch a Hun grab the spike on his helmet and stab your mate with it. Trench clubs were just another element of grisly hand to hand combat of days of yore that still found a place in the mechanized war of the 20th century. Survive a rolling bombardment and then in the middle of the night some bastard comes at you with a weapon from days of yore.

Social Matter - Weimerica Weekly Episode 9

This week's Weimerica Weekly is up at Social Matter. This one clocks in at 30 minutes. The subject matter is of course timely in our culture as each week it seems someone is pushing women into something new.
So what is the need for female firefighters, female military members and female cops? There is no need but the political need. I touch a little on race as well since this diversification is part of the partronage game and Democrats must reward their foot soldiers. What could possibly go wrong?

I hope you enjoy. Next week I have an interview scheduled. I am hoping that February will have a slate of interviews to spice things up, as I don't know if I can do this alone. Who am I kidding, of course I can.

A Few New Links On The Blogroll

I always feel like one should refresh the blogroll from time to time. Who you read or recommend changes as time moves onward and writers change. If I kept the same blogroll, it'd be like Heartiste's blogroll that is from 2011 and is nearly full of dead blogs (ex: OneSTDV) and has-beens (ex: Virgle Kent). A few I have added to my regular reading list are now off to the right.

Akinokure - Face to Face is a nice blog that is different. Different not just in the different take on things, but different in that it is different and varied in content and yes, even take on things. It is refreshingly varied. It is too common even in our sphere to fall into set patterns, where you know what the writer will say and in what style they will use. I enjoy his writing.

Kakistocracy is run by the fellow on Twitter "Porter". His approach to this world as an absurd spectacle is fantastic for this odd, exhausted period we are trapped in. He is skilled in his writing, and his posts appear well crafted. He is entertaining, too. If I hosted a roundtable show, I would love to have him on it for his social critique. I'd add the writer of Akinokure to that roundtable as well.

PA World and Times is a brand new blog by long time commenter in the Roissysphere, PA. I tweeted to Heartiste a year or two ago that PA was the best commenter in our corner of the web. I had been encouraging him for years to write a blog, and he finally delivered. It was well worth the wait.

I read non-stop. Blogs, essays, books you name it. I am always looking for the story behind the story, and often looking for a point of view I had not considered. On the book front, I have been digging into the writing of old State department officials. With blogs, so many come and go that one needs to replenish the weekly or daily reading list. The above writers definitely are worth checking in on once a week.

Humpty Dumpty Progressivism

The system seems to be accelerating for disorder and chaos. The system's speed is also a great tool in revealing the inconsistent or contradictory statements by the progressives. This is not new, only more open. The progs can use whatever argument they deem legitimate and morally superior at the moment. That statement means what they mean it to mean at that time. This is solely about power. This is Humpty Dumpty Progressivism. 

Ferguson protesters and Baltimore protesters turn into rioters. Property is smashed. Cop cars overturned or destroyed. Arson, looting, and mayhem that frightens the locals are at, around and a part of these protests. The milder protests occupy police stations or try to block interstates. This is political expression. This is political speech for the voiceless. Forget that cable news cameras are there and print media reporters are taking down the rioters every word; these acts are raised to the level of MLK being hosed down by cops. Several months pass and a group of American flag waving whites occupy an empty government building. Some are armed with rifles. This is called an act of terrorism. These protesters are terrorists. They should be droned is the cry of many progressives. Humpty Dumpty Progressivism strikes!

Beyond one time events, long running propaganda memes face this same quirky reality. The idea of a Slutwalk was a multi-year feminists tool in reaction to one cop warning women in Toronto that they should have situational awareness and be cognizant of how they dressed as they walked through rough cities. This was victim blaming and set off years worth of women proudly marching as sluts. Fast forward to January of 2016. The city of Cologne Germany experienced hundreds of sexual assaults by a thousand Muslim rapefugees. The mayor, a woman, advised women to watch how they dressed not to entice Muslims and to keep an arm's length away. Victim blaming and a rape culture cause the feminists to do... nothing. No protest. No nothing. Humpty Dumpty Progressivism strikes again!

Even the simple memes are repeatedly used in spotty fashion. "If it saves just one life" is a common refrain when discussing banning all guns in America. It is a childish statement and ridiculous in its cost-benefit analysis. This is a common refrain. Now that Europe is witnessing a crime spike and a rape wave with migration, calls to stop migrants or send them back are called xenophobic and racist. Why does the save one life not apply when the simple act of deporting Muslims or not opening the gates to migrants in the first place would have prevented hundreds if not thousands of rapes? Humpty Dumpty Progressivism strikes again!

This can be done with almost anything. For example: America has horrible economic inequality, but let's keep importing poor, uneducated third world people into an already "unfair" system. This is a continuous, daily operation. It only operates due to their hand at the levers of control. This is a system of control and propagating their memes to manage the specific situation at the moment. The only reason it even works, and it is failing now, is that they hold all the megaphones. Removed from any official position of power for controlling the message and they'd be destroyed in a second. This is why elections or a coup will not matter unless the treasonous media is dealt with at the same time. This is why Orban took care of the media in Hungary. Orban shows a potential path. Like other behaviors of the Left, Humpty Dumpty Progressivism withers and dies in the face of truth.

Social Matter - Rock N Roll Is Dead, The SJWs Have Killed It

Over at Social Matter, I have an essay up about the year in SJWs going nuts in the music industry. There is a special focus on Mark Kozelek.

It was only a matter of time. The social justice warrior march through lifestyle institutions continues and is even starting to pick up speed. Video games, Star Wars, anything that can earn some money and occupy the mindspace of citizens (when not tuned into MSNBC or #hashtag activism), must be sanitized by social justice warriors (SJWs).

Jesus, SJWs are awful. There is a rundown of everything the SJWs went nuts for, and a bit of a discussion on the media inserting itself and of course, lying.

Europe's Vigilante Mobs + SM Preview-Review 29

Have you seen the reports of vigilante groups popping up to protect natives in Europe? Of course, the media is concerned and upset over this, far more so than they were of sex mobs. This is great to see popping up. It is also a dark sign that faith in the authorities is so low that people organically feel that they have to take back some of the duties that they formerly felt comfortable outsourcing to the regime. Trust in institutions is low and when this low in security institutions, it is a bad sign for the political regime.

A couple things of note on this is that, first, there was a member of the government who stated a positive about the group in Finland. This matters. Anything associated with right wing, nationalist or nativisit (best label) will fail unless there are signs within official power centers or interests that support it. Note Anatoly Karlin's blog post pointing out the majority of French siloviks were going to vote for the National Front in France. That is immense. Silovik is Russian term that describes individuals or politicians aligned or from the security state apparatus. Take a look at Putin's power circle. Look up Igor Sechin.

Second, the Finns chose the name "Sons of Odin". I am a Catholic but contemporary Christianity is annoying and makes me roll my eyes non-stop. How dead is Christianity in Europe that the Finnish rallying identity for a tough, vigilante security group chooses the old pagan God Odin for imagery and identification. One would think fighting an invading horde of Muslims would be prime time for Deus Vult Crusader imagery. It's not. Damning indictment of what Christianity has devolved to in Europe.

Last week, I wrote on how the movie Nightcrawler is the reality of journalism today and tomorrow. It can't be fiction if we're already seeing Louis Bloom antics today.

On Wednesday, Weimerica Weekly was about a trans killer, the insanity of medical authorities greenlighting the woman's transition, and then a discussion of how the victim was a representative of the good side of her small community. Transitioning is a fraud in so many cases, and this woman is no different. Consider my podcast counterprogramming to the mainstream media. The murder was in my hometown. I knew the victim and her family well. She was the kind of person who is a good social force in a small town. The odd coincidence being they lived on the same street (at different times). Weird how such opposites came together in a tragic moment one afternoon.

28Sherman at The Right Stuff

The fellows at The Right Stuff published an essay I wrote about our FIRE economy and the problem of usury. Please read it there.

I did not want to write the essay but like Michael Corleone in Godfather 3, they pull me back in. Thanks to TRS for publishing this essay and my Russian Mafia essay. While I do not agree with TRS on everything, I do support building bridges to destroy the Left. We can split the spoils later.

Beautiful photo of one dead soldier. This looks like a work of art yet just captures one of the many millions that perished on the fields in the Great War.

Social Matter - Weimerica Weekly Episode 8

Episode 8 of Weimerica Weekly is now up. Go listen to it there. It clocks in at just under 30 minutes. Perfect for a drive home from work or lunch break. Who am I kidding, just plug your headphones into your smartphone and listen to it.

This week's episode uses one murder to discuss the absurdity of the trans phenomenon. We always hear about people transitioning or just identifying with another gender, but do we dig into the type of people given the green light to transition? The details are ridiculous. I use one murder to discuss the horrible trans murderer and then the normal, married mom of 4 who is now no longer with us. If my bias shows a bit, it's because I knew the murdered woman and her family. She is dead because our medical system is tainted by insane prog motives.

I hope you enjoy. Go listen to it there!

David Bowie's Footsie With Fascism

David Bowie passed away after a battle with cancer. The normal tributes and boring "OMG I can't belieeeeve Bowie is dead" tweets went out en masse. He had cancer and was quiet about it, so it is surprising but he was 69 years old. He was a talented musician with a career of reinvention. A testament to his work is in the words of my younger cousin who was born well after his biggest releases but loved Bowie. Bowie also existed in an era that we cannot go back to due to the PC police and SJW era.

Did you ever read about David Bowie's flirtation with fascism? It is right there in his La Wik entry. Bowie later blamed it on drugs, but if you look at some other singers of the era, they shouted and stated some rather radical nationalist, fascist or racist things onstage or in print. Straight from the Playboy interview:

PLAYBOY: You’ve often said that you believe very strongly in fascism. Yet you also claim you’ll one day run for Prime Minister of England. More media manipulation? 
BOWIE: Christ, everything is a media manipulation. I’d love to enter politics. I will one day. I’d adore to be Prime Minister. And, yes, I believe very strongly in fascism. The only way we can speed up the sort of liberalism that’s hanging foul in the air at the moment is to speed up the progress of a right-wing, totally dictatorial tyranny and get it over as fast as possible. People have always responded with greater efficiency under a regimental leadership. A liberal wastes time saying, “Well, now, what ideas have you got?” Show them what to do, for God’s sake. If you don’t, nothing will get done. I can’t stand people just hanging about. Television is the most successful fascist, needless to say. Rock stars are fascists, too. Adolf Hitler was one of the first rock stars. 
PLAYBOY: How so? 
BOWIE: Think about it. Look at some of his films and see how he moved. I think he was quite as good as Jagger. It’s astounding. And, boy, when he hit that stage, he worked an audience. Good God! He was no politician. He was a media artist himself. He used politics and theatrics and created this thing that governed and controlled the show for those 12 years. The world will never see his like. He staged a country.
Really, I would like to be Prime Minister, but I think I’d have to set up my own country first. I don’t want to be Prime Minister of the old country. I’d have to create the state that I wish to live in first. I dream of one day buying companies and television stations, owning and controlling them.

Now isn't this rich. One other quote from the Wiki entry, "You've got to have an extreme right front come up and sweep everything off its feet and tidy everything up."You can find the full text of the Playboy interview with Cameron Crowe. Wasn't I just writing that Playboy sometimes published gems with their interviews? Bowie was always playing with the line of performer, product, art and whatnot. How much of this was him performing, and how much was Bowie legitimately considering the nature of fame and even political systems. This is only a couple of years the British "Winter of Discontent" era. This is the same national mood that inspired Alan Moore's V For Vendetta comic.

Bowie had another quote about Hitler being one of the first pop stars. Curious about all of this was these statements and this era of Bowie was when he was also the first white performer asked to perform on "Soul Train". He is not wrong in the cult of personality that was built around Hitler. This is what Bowie was getting at with his statements. It was a softer PC environment then compared to now, but it was a statement with any positive kind of connotation towards fascism, therefore it must be dealt with.

Later in life, Bowie would cover that period as drug induced crazy talk. His words did not destroy his career. This is an indictment of the modern entertainment and music scene. Mel Gibson is on the outside looking in, and as I will write this coming Sunday, music is in the midst of a SJW clean up of individual opinions. One of rock's last innovators and artists died. He is not just a last member of the peak era of rock but of another era when performers had a little bit of personality... and the progs were not out with knives the moment thoughtcrime was expressed.

Movie Review of Nightcrawler

Netflix is a fantastic technology. Bill gates knew digital versions of media and transmission was coming, but somehow Netflix and Amazon beat him to it. There are movies or documentaries I will start because I can stop them at anytime since there is no sunk cost of renting. After reading some favorable reviews, I watched Nightcrawler. Nightcrawler is a great film that I heartily recommend.

The movie is about modern society and especially the modern city. The film depicts modern city living in all its "people are interchangeable units to be used by the city" glory. Louis Bloom is just a young white guy searching for meaning, a purpose, a job. He wants to turn a job into a career. He knows that is what he is suppose to do and will help him get the things he is suppose to want, but he has a hard time finding it.

Louis Bloom is not a sociopath as some reviewers labeled him. The director wanted to avoid this and focus on Bloom being a product of society. Bloom is a kid you went to school with who was awkward but would know he had to copy some things to fit in. It feels forced with him. Not austim as much as a kid who learns the buzz word speech of school and corp lingo. If I study it and mimic it, I will be successful. These are the Zig Zigler convention attendees. There is nothing original to his life. He steals and copies ideas from others. The end is a two van team which he stole the idea from Bill Paxton's character that he indirectly killed.

He is but a victim of the atomization of society and city living. Bloom lives alone, eats alone, has no shared goals, and struggles with social situations. He seemed very Millenial. The hustle of the moment he will try, and apply his school robot program to, but he is easily distracted. Listen to the statistics he spits out. Bloom researched his new task, but how committed to it is he in reality? He thinks he wants this, and thinks he can make a career of it at this moment.Even in a sexual situation, he has things he thinks he wants but a resistant partner. His assistant, Rick, is the perfect representation of the modern American city dweller: a mystery meat, helpless male. Rick is a borderline bum just looking for some cash. Rick could be any ethnicity or combination. He is the beige being that is chewed up and spit out by our modern cities. He is a fringe guy, a byproduct of failed social policies and a piece that the city cannot help. Of course Bloom, with his slight mental and information advantages, will use Rick for his ends.

The scenes between Rick and Bloom are fantastic commentary on the modern economy. There are regular folks looking for any type of niche to have merit and earn money. Become a subject matter expert in the gig economy, which is what the duo becomes with collecting news footage. These two are goofy and not corporate brainiacs yet these characters still know the corp lingo that we have witnessed and swallowed whole. I loved the negotiations for Rick's raise and the "where is my performance review!" demand from Rick. We all are infected with the buzzwords. Rick is paid in cash, yet still mimics what he knows real jobs say and demand. Bloom gives Rick a meaningless title bump and Rick eats it up because we have all been trained to recognize and react to those status labels: Vice President.

Think of their set up. It is two guys in a car chasing crashes. Louis found Rick from an online ad or something weak and they have an interview at a diner. Rick just wants some cash each day for showing up. He worked landscaping and odds and ends jobs. Louis needs him for navigation but more for companionship in their atomized dystopian lives. Despite the abuse and the risk, Rick still stays. Louis Bloom has a plan, which he keeps from Rick, but he himself is still dependent on finding footage every single night for his 1099 employee (if that) payments. There is little to no security for them, but they know there will be some catastrophe to film that night. What is Uber? What is AirBnB? Someone is going to need smething. There is a market, but you gotta hustle for it kiddo. This is the 21st century American work experience.

The journalism angle is well represented for gore but there is a miss. The sell is that crime creeping into white burbs plays well for cameras. We know this is a lie. Hollywood wants you to think the media is not on the side of criminals and trying to frame crime as a bad thing. This is a lie since the dindu crimes of break-ins are suppressed while the Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin shootings get national coverage. Where was the national outrage for Amanda Blackburn? Unfamiliar with that name? She was the pastor's wife raped and murdered in front of her toddler. They couldve just robbed her but they did not. they raped and killed her. That did not get trayvon or michael brown treatment, but if we are in the start of a national crime wave and incarceration policies are being debated, what better symbol to push to be tough on crime? She is not used since she does not fit the prog narrative. Yes, if it bleeds, it leads, but the media will do their best to say, "he dindu nuffin, he a good boy, he turnin' his life aroun'". Read the framing of this crook's justified death at the hands of an off-duty cop.

The setting and situation itself enhances the movie. They chase accidents and break-ins on the roads at night. Aren't our cities nothing but a maze of roads? Isn't that the American landscape? Kunstler calls it the Geography of Nowhere. American towns developed far more along the "company town" line, which is why the Rust Belt and even the old mill towns of New England emptied out. There was no long term, natural development of a town as a trading spot, religious holy spot or even simple, easily defended mountain towns. Many towns are simply near a power source or waterway that mills could be built near and then it was a matter of putting people near the economic centers. Then it was putting people in bdroom communities so they could drive to economic centers without being killed by Democrats. Thanks to Robert Moses and his backers (automobile and oil interests), cities are built for cars. This is why there are no walkable cities, even the small ones. This flick handles that perfectly. Everything is finding a route, getting to locations, using a vehicle to place oneself on the two dimensional map in the right place at the right time.

Pardon this interlude but Los Angeles comes across as soulless here. It is an awful city. Thank you.

The mood is great. Bloom's pauses between lines combined with his silent performance in many shots makes one more curious. The lighting is dark and has a blue hue to it. It lives up to its name and is a night movie. Cities have a different feel after dark. Maps of who is where in a city during the day versus at night reveal quite a bit. It is a different crowd and this movie touches on the evil. Some people are just night owls. The night owls, or simply night people as Jean Shepherd referred to his loyal listeners, area different type. Working third shift is unnatural so there are stereotypes or implications to being a night person. Even during the daytime, Bloom keeps his shades shut. It was a nice touch.

With that mood, there is a missed opportunity. I expected as he lost out on a scoop that he would turn into creating the crimes he would then cover. It seemed a logical extension to his character forever flirting with legality. Why not go that route? Instead we get him playing things up to film, when we could have had a sinister turn of instigating the robberies to push his company. Bloom paying  robbers to then film them and their results would be a guaranteed investment to a character who slapped corporate lingo onto anything in the grey zone. Is that not a little like what we feel now with protestor-rioters used by the police state and left to further their political goals? MSNBC practically goading blacks to burn down Ferguson, MO was done so in order to air the fires as they started. It's using the fringe of a city for one's gain. Whether Rick or a robber, it felt like this was a missed opportunity for the filmmakers.

It might have been too dark. It might have been too much for a film. This also points to another idea or avenue that this film's creators could develop. This would make a great television series on HBO. A season could be 10-12 episodes. Series arcs are easy to think of, and character development far easier to push in a serial format. People can come and go due to television news setting. It is a great opportunity, and would work even better than a film. Does Louis Bloom go fully evil? Is he even evil in today's world? Is there anything of substance there? Why is he off? These are questions the two hour film could not answer. Still the film is great.

Social Matter - Nightcrawler Is Journalism's Here And Now

New essay up at Social Matter about what journalism has become. This is about your friendly neighborhood reporter, not just the general concept of the media.

California experienced a tragedy at the close of 2015. It was the latest incident of Muslim jihadi violence.
No, it was not the UC-Merced stabbing incident that the media has memory-holed and decided to withhold the attacker’s manifesto.The tragedy was the San Bernardino shooting rampage by a homegrown jihadi and his new bride. Immediate media ridicule from the Left came right from the start, as they anticipated a right-wing or white male shooter, only to find out that it was a dynamic duo of Muslims. Follow-up follies were the behavior and actions of the media following the examination of the couple’s apartment.
Fiction had become reality as the antics from the film Nightcrawler were on live television for the world to see. This is the media’s reality of today. It will only get worse tomorrow.

Go read it there. Tomorrow I will be reviewing the film Nightcrawler, so it will be an old flashback to my old "twin post" pattern. Hope you enjoy.

European Sex Mobs + SM Review + Preview 28

As predicted by adults and immigration restrictionists, the waves of migrants who were mostly military age single men created some problems for Europe. Rapes, assaults and mayhem were everywhere on New Year's Eve. This is just the first few months. No stop to the flow of migrants. At least some ground level cops are open about the mayhem, but the media and government combined to try to suppress the problem. Governments are siding with the invaders. They serve the elite's purpose. Vigilante protection gangs have supposedly popped up, the authorities are not changing their tune and some are even, shall we say, victim blaming, and the sides are being drawn.

Western Govts + traitorous natives + mino dependents vs. nationalist native inhabitants

It really is that simple. As I wrote in SM weeks ago about Globalism vs. nationalism, the globalist line pushers are generally your traitors to their nations. They share allegiance to a Trotskyite vision of world socialism not our vision of community, people and thede.

Last week, I wrote a thought experiment out of a move Russia could do in this new Cold War. Amerikanskiy Zones can house heirloom-americans. Think of the propaganda win for Russia if they had a pool of dissident Americans to parade around on television or the net to delegitimize the US, its degenerate culture and leadership. This is what we did in the Cold War with dissident Russians we took in, even their crooks.

On Wednesday, Weimerica Weekly discussed the Paris Attacks and the roll out of the French response. I discussed the different waves of immigration, and spotlighted the rather different waves of immigration from one small ethnicity into America: Jews. I try to be topical but fit in history and the bigger picture with these podcasts. I'm pleased and humbled by the positive response.

This week I will write on how the movie Nightcrawler is the reality for journalism now, and it will only get worse. The incentives are all there.

I also do mean it when I say, this year, I am trying to pull back a bit. I say that every year, but I am trying this year to make that reality.

WW1: Aussies Underground



This photo was taken of Australian troops living underground. This is from Ypres in 1917. The Germans shelled them continuously, and they spent much time in the dark, dank cellars.

Social Matter - Weimerica Weekly Episode 7

This week's Weimerica Weekly is up at Social matter. Go listen to it there. These are meant to be topical but woven into the larger fabric of our culture and society.
This week's episode is on the Paris attacks, the change in the game for terrorist attacks and immediate reactions, the French response or non-response, the problems of immigration, and then I take a look at a specific type of immigration. No inflow of immigration is ever the same, so the Muslims coming now are different than the Muslims coming in a generation or two ago. I use a very small community's immigration splits to discuss just how different immigration can be. Jewish immigration into America is rather interesting, especially considering the incredibly small numbers compared to what is going on in Europe with Muslims and Africans at the moment.
This episode is 26 minutes, so it is perfect for a lunch break or commute ride. Please listen to it there, and remember if you are interested in sponsoring the podcast, let me know at Mrossi34228 at gmail dot com.

FYI - My first guests will start in February podcasts.

The Slattery Report and Our Lying Media

The winds have shifted in the Syrian Refugee debate. Even the broadest of polls has revealed a shift from a 10% margin for allowing them in to a 10% margin for denying entry. Deeper within the poll is that the shift is due to independents moving from support to deny. Scarier might be that in the face of jihadi violence not just in Paris but in America and ISIS openly stating they will send in sleepers, Democrats now support allowing refugees in by a greater margin (74% say "refugees welcome"). Why is this? Well the propaganda machine has been cranking out guilt trips for Americans to support in refugees and are using the all time favorite "The Holocaust" as their rationale.

Ezra Klein's Vox lays it on thick pointing to America's rejection of Jewish refugees as some haunting, shameful act that shapes us today. Yes, America takes in refugees more and quickly now but is it because of the Holocaust or because of the Left's control over immigration policies and th e'65 immigration law changes? That link is not Dara Lind's only piece of refugee propaganda, as she also pushed the pro-refugee line tying it to Jewish identity. Why must 315 million Americans be forced to do things because less than 2% of its population wants it and needs to feel it's a part of living their identity? Note: Israel is never asked to take in a single refugee despite being a Jewish nation. This is insanity.

It is almost as insane as laying the Holocaust at Americans' feet. The M.S. St. Louis is a ship that Jews trot out as when America let Jews down. Buried in paragraphs is the little fact that 75% of all passengers on that ship survived the Holocaust. Exactly when, how and why was the American government to intervene on behalf of Jews in Germany in the '30s? Why? What made the Nazi policies any worse than what the Japanese did to the Chinese? How would we intervene and on what justification in Germany after turning a blind eye to the policies of the Soviet Union in the same decade and the '20s? At what point was America to intervene? In 1939, the camps were getting worse but not exterminating people. That was also an active war year, so was America to go to war over minorities within another nation? I am confused Jews. Explain it to me and why this is not just because it was your tribe.

On top of all of this is that in every single article about "THE EVIL AMERICANS DID NUTTIN'", none mention the Slattery Report. The lies of omission are sometimes the worst but most necessary for the Left because it kills their retcon of the past. The US federal government looked into settling some Jews in Alaska. You know who did not like that idea? American Jews. This was a combined effort, but many interests were against this idea. America is not a dumping ground for everyone. If we did it for Jews, we'd have to do it for everyone or else they would be getting special privileges. American immigration policy now is let all in at all times. America is a dumping ground.

The most disgusting thing is to consider how many Americans liberated Nazi camps and freed Jews behind barb wire. In return, those white men are demonized as the horrible patriarchy, the bad old order and nothing to be thankful for. Americans who share the values of those liberators are today called Nazis. One of my grandfathers was in the 3rd Armored Division that liberated a camp. He told me many things from the war. One that he shared, once I was old enough, was that he never understood how thousands of prisoners would not charge the dozens of guards armed with guns. How come the Jews would not fight back? It sickened him. Die on your feet. Had he lived to see the Holocaust used as an excuse for the obliteration of any concept of national borders and protecting one's people, he would spit blood.

The lies will roll off their fingertips as they type away guilting Americans. The Christian Bible angle was used after the Holocaust excuse, but that seems to be an angle at self described conservatives. The Holocaust, the ultimate sin that Americans are guilted with despite taking place thousands of miles away, is the message that works on the Left, independents and conservatives. It is a good pitch. After all, how many American cities have Holocaust memorials and how many Americans have heard the words, "NEVER AGAIN"?

Social Matter - Amerikanskiy Zones

My latest essay is up at Social Matter. It is about a potential propaganda move that Russia could enact if this truly is a Cold War 2.0: Amerkanskiy Zones.
As America slips into an unnecessary Cold War 2.0, some familiar sides are shaping up. There is a universalist regime bent on spreading its belief system around the globe through violent insurrection. There is another side that has a strong tie between its security state and nominal claims to religious ties. China is even a go-between in the situation. Unlike the prior Cold War, the regime supporting violent insurrection for progressive ideals is found in DC, while the nationalists appealing to security states around the globe is found in the Kremlin. The similarities are trickling down beyond just the main event. Propaganda, in all forms, is making a comeback.

Please check it out. There have been fun comments so far as I found out there was a better Russian word for American, some people wondered if this was clickbait, another wondered if it was a troll and VXXC did some VXXCing like he now routinely does in all my Social Matter posts. My advice is,

I wouldn't waste 2000 words on either clickbait or a troll job. Think of what propaganda is and how powerful simple acts can become. It would not be a brain drain as much as a heart and soul drain.

2015 Thoughts + Social Matter Review/Preview 27

Is 2015 an awakening year? Maybe. If anything, it was a year where the Left really went hog wild with enjoying degeneracy and masks slipped here and there about a variety of communist things. Who can forget the week of "Fags and Flags" where the entire media-retail complex mad eit impossible to wear, discuss or shop for a confederate flag while simultaneously broadcasting the rainbow flag everywhere and anywhere. The right might have caught on that Big Biz is not their friend. Some whites might have caught on that if this be tribal politics and conflict, best to rally around someone (Trump).

Trump. How much fun has Trump been? He has destroyed a Bush. Mocked the system, and railed against the media. I don't think he can change much, and I have a strong feeling the Establishment will stab him in the back in 2016. If so, be ready. A stab in the back mythology is a strong one, especially if it leads to a stroke impaired president who needs to nap often. The presidency has reduced Obama from a young, fresh faced looking man to a "last scene in Philadelphia" AIDS patient. Many think Hillary will select Julian Castro as VP, which is a sad indictment of the Left as she appears worried and is not going to select Senator Kaine and instea dis hinting at a neophyte Mexican. This reveals the uselessness of electoral politics and limited power if any of the presidency.

Still, we can dream of a Trump-Putin Deus Vult Alliance.

Last week at Social Matter, I wrote on Christmas and the look back at the change in broader society for Christians. Will they answer the call? They have not had to fight for their faith for centuries, so will they pick up the sword where their ancestors left off. This year was one where the Left's anti-Christianity mask fell off completely. On Wednesday, Weimerica Weekly was about art, sex, the degeneration of art, CIA using modern art and the managerial revolution's effect on art, sex and life. Give it a listen, as art really has become about the party.
