“27,000 people applied but only 4 filled out their preferences correctly”

Hat-tip to commenter Anubis at Vox Day for the astonishing figure above.  What are they applying for?  Why, it’s Section h8 of course!: The Section 8 lottery is coming soon to St. Louis County and as many as 30,000 people are expected to line up for a chance to win free rent. The St Louis County Housing Authority […]

Queer Sci-Fi: Your Taxdollars at work

Hat-tip Vox Day:  not to be left behind by the UK, which funded homosexual aspiring writer Damien Damian (?) Walters to write his (still unwritten) debut science fiction novel with a public grant, the American FedGov’s NEA, reports Scifi Pundit: has reportedly paid University of Oregon “poet” Amanda Powell to translate a 2005 science fiction novel […]

Barack Obama chastises us about the Crusades and the Inquisition

Hat-tip The Thinking Housewife: the Golf Cart Caligula gives us reasons to be humble: And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim […]

“Feminist Music”

Hat-tip Dalrock, for this entry from Mr. Cool, Paul Joseph Watson, concerning “feminist music”.  Put down the coffee before you watch: And now, for the sake of my ears and sanity, and also in homage to the GBFM(TM), I’m going to go listen to Beethoven’s Third Symphony.

I’m not familiar with this guy’s work, but this video is a neat introductory summation of various manosphere themes, recited by an intense English guy in front of a world map: –And how can I not tip my hat to a guy who talks manosphere themes in front of a world map? In fact, this […]

Mickey Kaus: “Obnoxious Foodies”, with applications to meatloaf and mashed potatoes

Kaus used this expression “obnoxious foodies” before, and it had long stuck with me as a great shorthand for a certain sort of elitist–perhaps the largest part of our “elites”.  Kaus also coined the “juicebox mafia” to caption certain of his foes– led by the puerile Ezra Klein– but “obnoxious foodies”, which covers some of the […]

Idiotic cant about “21st Century Libraries”

A reader sends Laura Wood at The Thinking Housewife a link to this hysterical slice of mumbo-jumbo about “21st century libraries”.  Not that I would waste my breath debunking this patently ludicrous ball of blather:  it’s just that, once I started snorting with laughter, I knew I had to share . It’s entitled “The Future of […]

In case you ever doubted the “flu vaccine” was a crock

We now learn that: This year’s flu vaccine is only 23 percent effective, according to new estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). That figure is on the low side of effectiveness for flu vaccines, and confirms earlier speculation among public health officials that this season’s vaccine was a poor match for […]

Ann Althouse: “Massacre” is the right word

Ann Althouse on the terror attack: I think “massacre” is the right word here, not “mass murder.” It should be recognized as a military operation — France is under attack — not some individuals who lost their mind or their temper and transgressed into the everyday evil we call murder. –The link Ann embeds in […]

“Of Christian Descent”

Fernand Braudel writes: Western Christianity was and remains the main constituent element in European thought– including rationalist thought, which although it attacked Christianity was also derivative from it.  Throughout the history of the West, Christianity has been at the heart of the civilization it inspires, even when it has allowed itself to be captured or […]

The most dangerous figure in American history

The combination of Obama’s radical, nation-remaking agenda, his calm, collected personality, his effortless and infinite capacity for lying, and the worshipful attitude many people have toward him, makes him the most dangerous figure in American history. –Wrote Lawerence Auster in January 2009. Obama proposes unconstitutional executive action to anoint with citizenship myriads of criminal indigent […]

Australia Closes Borders to Ebolastan

Thank God! Australia became the first developed country on Tuesday to shut its borders to citizens of the countries worst-hit by the West African Ebola outbreak, a move those states said stigmatized healthy people and would make it harder to fight the disease. Australia’s ban on visas for citizens of Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea […]

I, For One, Welcome Our Beaver Overlords

[Ed.:  That is soooo blue pill of you!] –Damnit, man, I’m talking about the real beavers– the dam beavers.  What are they up to, besides “reengineering the landscape”?  I don’t know; but since white men let fall the right to get stuff done, I’m happy to let the beavers build their better tomorrow. I think […]

The Apocalypse Bowleth Over

–thanks to a dickhead hipster humanitarian doctor. Check it out at the New York Daily’s link above.  This schmuck of an MD claimed to “self-quarantine” himself and then went bowling instead.  An actual honest-to-god physician. Hell, the guy’s even white. Which just goes perfectly to show that the whole project of Western technocracy, with its […]

Are We Dead Yet?

Things got awful quiet all of a sudden, didn’t they? All those piles of bedclothes soiled with blood and puke and shit; the infected taking flight.  That Nigerian guy dead on arrival at JFK after puking on the plane over.  All those order-of-magnitude leaps in the numbers of persons of interest who have to check […]

Operation Dark Winter

The notes for 2001 US government smallpox-attack war game “Operation Dark Winter”  [h/t Cataline Sergius] make for grimly interesting reading.  Certain aspects of the exercise are badly dated– the hypothetical bioweapons attack originates from Saddam’s Iraq, which appears to be in cahoots with “Usama Bin Laden”.  These regrettable reminders of the idiotic neo-con Washington consensus […]

But nobody does anymore in the West: In France, large swaths of Muslim neighborhoods are now considered “no-go” zones by French police.

It’s Funny Because It’s True (Sept 16th ed)

At althouse, commenter Archie writes: 99% of Pakistanis make the other 1% look bad. lolzlolzlzlozlz  “It’s funny because it’s true.”   Not much “value added” with that population in the pack.  Don’t they have a teeming nation to call their own?

Desert Storm TV

Discussing a Roger Simon neocon splitter-splutter opinion piece over at Vox Popoli, commenter Nate wonders: I wonder what percentage of neocons are neocons based solely on the extreme entertainment value of Desert Storm TV in 1991. Commenter Josh replies: Desert storm was Peak America. In retrospect, it was also the worst thing that could have […]

Rich Lowry suddenly talks like an honest to God conservative

Unironic title!  From breitbart (internal links their own): Rich Lowry, the editor of National Review, denounced Republican elites and their high-priced consultants in the permanent political class for pushing amnesty legislation by perpetuating the myth that there are so many jobs that American workers won’t do.  “The next time I hear a Republican strategist or a […]

Immigration Insanity

Immigration “news” is so nuts, it cannot be satirized.  Nor does it avail, it seems,  to cast a  vote, or write to Congress, or to your newspaper.  The United States, the world’s third most populous country, struggling in its transition to a supposed “post-industrial economy” and leaving even its most educated native citizens behind as wages sink in a race […]

Vox Day: Three Entries on the Jews

Next Year in Jerusalem: People have a free speech right to anti-Semitic rhetoric, they have a right to be hostile if that is how they feel, and if any Jew seriously wants […]

The Kiev Sanction II: Ukrainian “Government” Collapses– Why?

From the Los Angeles Times: In a brief statement, [Prime Minister] Yatsenyuk told Parliament, “I announce my resignation in connection with the collapse of the coalition and the blocking of government initiatives.” He criticized lawmakers for gridlock that he said had interfered with the body’s ability to pass measures on issues such as energy and […]

The Kiev Sanction: background to crisis

WWIII curiously has been averted– almost as curious as the way flight MH17 diverted into rebel airspace.  I guess we can be thankful, in some small way, that Reggie keeps Barry Hussein well-stocked with “good” weed. It may well prove that the Malaysian air flight was drafted to use as a human shield for simultaneous […]

But the honor endures: the latest feats of Roger Federer

Roger Federer, barely beaten in the Wimbledon Finals– but what a great man, just to be there.  For those who have prophesied Federer’s impending mortality ever since Wimbledon in 2008, this is– yet another– astonishing proof of the man’s enormous gift. Novak Djokovic’s large lead in the rollicking Wimbledon final was slipping away, due in […]

The Fourth of July: Thoughts from Brother Nathanael

Our Orthodox spiritual and geopolitical guru, Brother Nathanael, shares a few thoughts for the holiday weekend, from the suddenly vernal surroundings of his usually snow-streaked mountain retreats: We may say we need, not an “American Century”, but a Century for Americans.  A new era without servile corporatism, globalism, multiculturalism, militarism, and the self-righteous casuistry of […]

The Abomination Called “Surrogacy” (and the train that follows)

It never should have been allowed.  Surely a Marxist would call it the ultimate degraded form of “alienated labor”.  A Christian or a Jew should recognize that even the polygamous arrangements of the Old Testament have nothing in common with it.  No contract, no exchange of money, can ever unbind the bond stiched in the […]

Andrea Ostrov Letania on the Jewish Question

Neo-Hegelian film blogger Andrea Ostrov Letania, whose vast Emersonian movie essays often launch into dazzling if unpredictable tangents on history, culture, and nations, provides a précis of her views on the “Jewish Question”, as it now confronts Western whites in an America and Europe dominated by Jewish elitists whose intentions are orthogonal to the interests of […]

Can you smell the Pulitzer? –asks Kurt Schlichter in a devastating little piece from the usually rather lowbrow Townhall.  The quoted hypothetical is simply, literally too true. It’s become evident that rule of law is just about over in the United States of America.  If the GOP won’t take the Eric Cantor defeat as a […]

Well hell, if a pregnant Chelsea […]

Europe Tosses in Slumber

Did you know croissants were made to be eaten in mockery of Islam?  They’re crescents, and you eat them.  This started, it seems, in Spain, in the days when the Infidels reigned in Andalusia, before they were driven out and Spain, purified, spread its empire across the world.

Rationalizing Big Government and Big Debt

From Timothy Taylor’s The Instant Econimist: What are the trends in overall federal spending over time?  First of all, as a share of GDP, federal spending hasn’t shown any upward trend over recent decades.  Back in the early 1960s, federal spending ranged from about 19 to 22 percent of GDP.  It was a little higher […]

This article’s summary of recent reports on STEM employment and would-be employees puts a stake through the heart of Silicon Valley’s selfish plea for more immigrant workers, and I’m all for seeing that stake poke through Zuckerberg’s backside.  But, conservative daddies who demand the kiddies do STEM degrees because they’re “useful”, take note: In looking […]
