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.
