(J)WOKE  J(W)OKES  and THE BEASTS

The doctor  tells his patient “I have good news and bad news.” The patient says, “Tell me the bad news first, doc.  I can take it.” The doctor says “Well, after an exhaustive battery of expensive tests, I’m forced to conclude that I  no longer have the slightest excuse to charge you massive amounts of money for supposedly treating the terminal disease that  I previously jumped to the conclusion you may conceivably have begun to suffer from.  Without an excuse to treat you,  this also means no juicy kickbacks for needlessly exposing  you to incredibly toxic drugs that would  guarantee … Continue reading (J)WOKE  J(W)OKES  and THE BEASTS

AMERICA: A ONE-ACT PLAGUE

1-A COAT OF PAINT It’s as though a Realtor sold you on a house infested with termites but because the Realtor was handsome and smooth, you bought it anyway, ignoring the obvious Red Flags. The problem worsened over the years to the extent that anytime you chose to finally face the problem, you’d be facing an Absolute Nightmare. So you chose to ignore it, and pretend the house was structurally sound, and much-improved, every time you put a new coat of paint on it. But you know, deep down, the problem is still there, and getting worse by the minute. … Continue reading AMERICA: A ONE-ACT PLAGUE

FROM A BRIEF FLURRY OF CYNICAL EMAILS (THIS EVENING)

  A Friend wrote, today: What? Not “buried at sea”? Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi killed in US raid, Trump confirms https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/oct/27/abu-bakr-al-baghdadi-isis-leader-killed-us-donald-trump?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other To which I responded: A) Isn’t this excerpt,  from the article,  phrased in exactly the way one would phrase it in a satire of the same story: “Test results gave certain immediate and totally positive identification, it was him” ? B) BHO’s Team must be laughing their slick asses off: 1) What kind of Brand Recognition does this “dead turriss” have? 2) How much of a poll-points-bump will Trump get with this? 3) Isn’t he  (pages impatiently through manual)  supposed to *start* his own war (against, um, … Continue reading FROM A BRIEF FLURRY OF CYNICAL EMAILS (THIS EVENING)

BETWEEN THE LINES TIME: UPDATED

This is how to read the “Jeffrey Epstein was murdered” narrative. “Questions are mounting surrounding accused serial sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged suicide in his New York jail cell over the weekend. Epstein was found dead in his jail cell on Saturday morning at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, or MCC, in Manhattan, where authorities say he hanged himself. The warden at MCC has since been reassigned, and two guards who were tasked with monitoring Epstein were put on leave. Reports emerged Tuesday that the guards may have been asleep during their shift, failing to check on Epstein for hours and then falsifying time … Continue reading BETWEEN THE LINES TIME: UPDATED

SACRED COWS and the LOGIC of PROTEST vs the OILY CON and the RISE of the NATO BURKA

I read two articles on two different mainstream propaganda-vents, yesterday.  One shameless vent of Normative Neoliberality, The Guardian (UK), presented a text about the Mark Field scandal. The other vent, Slate (US), presented an advice column dissecting a picayune corner of the ethical minefield of 21st century dating (I still kiss the ground, and my Wife’s feet, in gratitude that I escaped the dating arena so early,  in 2004: I spontaneously nuzzle my Wife’s neck and stroke her hands, and tenderly grab her boobs and arse, all day long, and She grabs my arse and my balls –gingerly— a couple … Continue reading SACRED COWS and the LOGIC of PROTEST vs the OILY CON and the RISE of the NATO BURKA

VINTAGE DATA

Before the smiley-hopey-huggy-shruggy-lazy-hazy Disney version of “Reality” took over,  even among the so-called Progressives,  thinking types could actually get accurate info from the radio! Imagine! 1972. If you’ve never heard of Mae, or if what you’ve heard about her is character assassination, this is worth a corrective listen. The picture she paints is neither pretty nor untrue. What I keep thinking, as I listen to this,  again,  is how terribly low the level of discourse/ awareness has dropped in the decades since then. When did Duh Masses become such lazy prosecutors of the crimes committed against them? When did they … Continue reading VINTAGE DATA

GIMLET-EYED RUNE READING, part 2: ORIGIN of a GRAND OLD MEME

Where does the dirty-trick debating-term “Conspiracy Theorist” (the logical equivalent of a too-general-to-be-meaningful term like “Crime Theorist”) come from? Well,  late in the year of 1967 the following memo was released, internally,  for the perusal of CIA staff:   ******** CIA Document 1035-960 Concerning Criticism of the Warren Report CIA Document #1035-960 RE: Concerning Criticism of the Warren Report 1. Our Concern. From the day of President Kennedy’s assassination on, there has been speculation about the responsibility for his murder. Although this was stemmed for a time by the Warren Commission report, (which appeared at the end of September 1964), various writers … Continue reading GIMLET-EYED RUNE READING, part 2: ORIGIN of a GRAND OLD MEME

GIMLET-EYED RUNE READING: THINKING IS THE ONLY “WOKE” THERE IS (UPDATED)

This will be a “quick” (laugh; read: poorly-edited) one as a tower of long-avoided chores is piling up behind me. Quick but necessary, as I’ve posted a fairly dense chunk of parapolitical content this year and some readers are not quite sure how to approach the material… THE REVOLUTIONARY POTENTIAL OF OLD FRIENDS (WITH EMPHASIS ON “OLD”) I re-established contact with an old school friend, recently. J. was a fellow Beefheart/ Zappa connoisseur who was also a musician and who became a respected career scientist.  J. also happens to have married an ex girlfriend of mine (which sadly foreclosed many … Continue reading GIMLET-EYED RUNE READING: THINKING IS THE ONLY “WOKE” THERE IS (UPDATED)

ROSEMARY’S BOWIE & ASSORTED BITS of BLIP & INFO

  1. MERCUTIO IN THE HOOD  Rom. Dost thou not laugh ? Ben. No, coz, I rather weep. Rom. Good heart, at what ? When my 7th grade class was led through a detailed reading of (Shakespeare/ Marlowe’s) Romeo and Juliet by old Mrs Shaw, a giggle-wave rippled all the way to the back of the class room as we, of 1971’s South Side of Chicago,  discovered that fictional, 16th century, Veronese Mercutio, Paris, Tybalt, et al, were calling their chums (and  fellow gang-members)   “coz,” short for “cousin”… just like us. Well, to be honest, I don’t remember doing it … Continue reading ROSEMARY’S BOWIE & ASSORTED BITS of BLIP & INFO

TALES of FAT FETUS and the T-WORD

In the twenty years that I’ve been posting unpopular opinions in the public space of the NeoNatoConsensusNet, I’ve been called a “troll” by Christians, Jews, Muslims, White supremacists, Black Obamanauts, Alt-Righters, Lefty-Liberals, NeoCons, Anarcho-Academics, Hilaryoids, Bushnicks, Petersonettes, Zizekians,  Murkkans, Israelis, Konsumer Kids, MGTOWers, Hipster Queers, Homeowning Straights, “Race Realist” Delusionals, Chops-licking Misogynists, Trans Activists, RadFems, Blackface Pop Enthusiasts, Batman-loving Undergrads, YouTube-Celebrity minions, i-phone Commies,  Thick-Fingered Vulgarians, Demoblicans, Republicrats, Snowdenizers, Assange-ites, NASA-jocks, Wiccans, Darwinians and Pregnant Women.

Right after beloved Wife gave birth (fairly easily: 3 … Continue reading TALES of FAT FETUS and the T-WORD

SOC-MED GADFLY R US…

…because there is precious little well-argued push-back against any number of social engineering projects currently running.  One key-word, in c. 2008, in a Google search on a controversial subject was enough to trigger a cascade of links to dissenting opinions; to try it now is to find a baffling (and terrifying) uniformity of Tone out there. Have We changed that much… or has Google? Manufacturing a normative attitudinal consensus among the Soc Med Target Demos is now as concrete a step, before passing New Legislation, and implementing new restrictions on Speech and Thought Crime,  as the process of  bribery-based “sausage-making” … Continue reading SOC-MED GADFLY R US…

LET X=

1-LOWER MATH   Today’s winkingly pseudo-progressive racialism award goes to Eric Ross Weinstein, who coyly tweeted, the night before Xmas (emphasis mine): My scientific take on Race & IQ has nothing to do w either Race or IQ: Let X(p) be any continuously varying measurable scalar that can be defined for every person p in any population P_i. Then I would never expect m(X(P_i))=m(X(P_j)) where m is the mean & P_i, P_j are distinct. Speaking as a p, P_i and P_j are distinct in what quantifiable and non-trivial way(s), precisely… the median quality of their extravagant toupees? Have we all already casually forgotten … Continue reading LET X=

WHAT IS LEFT

I’ve never been a swooning fan of Cornel West’s presentation (like those other On-Camera Academics, Slavoj Zizek and Camille Paglia, West’s branding tics… in Paglia’s case it was demotic gum-chewing, in Zizek’s case the tics are literal…  are as lurid as a Professional Wrestlers’ masks and capes) but the man has tried to maintain a consistent, coherently dissident  presence, against tremendous odds, for quite some time. Since 2008, at least, he has struggled: almost a decade of swimming against a terrifyingly lockstep crowd. The tremendous odds against which West had to set himself were generated by the Charismatic Obama Regime … Continue reading WHAT IS LEFT

APP-ALLING: OVER THE COUNTER COUNTERCULTURE (A COMMERCIAL)

Young Indie Alt Media Star FKA Twigs appears in a Spike Jonze video, with the lacerating title “Welcome Home,” about the circular route, around the dead rituals of Capitalism’s cheese-in-the-maze worship, to schizophrenia. But can the schizophrenia be monetized? Spike Jonze, the upper class video director who specializes in the mental illnesses of Serfs, addresses this question. In the video’s conceptual top layer, a mouse (trapped in a post-Blade Runner rainscape denied even the decorative mercy of neon lights) returns to her HomePod. Where has she been? Working? Wandering the streets? We’ll never know.  “Safely” within her HomePod again, she … Continue reading APP-ALLING: OVER THE COUNTER COUNTERCULTURE (A COMMERCIAL)

A.I. , SKY NET and KNOWING KUNG FU

We live in a bizarrely lopsided Technocracy in which communications (and data-gathering) tech was seen to quite suddenly jump ahead, at least a century, in less than a generation, whereas power stations are still using heat (from nuclear materials) to generate steam, in order to power turbines… a technology only partially beyond Victorian knowledge. The internal combustion engine, powered by oil-derivatives (late-18th century tech: the first gas-powered engine was patented when Thomas Jefferson was 51), still growls and fumes at the heart of the vast majority of horseless carriages on Earth. I can picture-telephone, with almost anyone on Earth, with … Continue reading A.I. , SKY NET and KNOWING KUNG FU

THREE MINI-ESSAYS on GOURMET VARIETIES of ABSOLUTELY PREPOSTEROUS BULLSHIT

1. GENDER BULLSHIT Solidly-mediocre purveyor of Normative Pap, Hollywood asset Matt Damon, recently took the risky step of addressing the hot topic of sexual servitude in Hollywood with what he obviously thought was a carefully-calibrated non-statement that nobody could reasonably take exception to. However, an article at The Guardian (and what exactly are they guarding, I’ve often wondered, beyond the obvious?) now  informs us: Damon said there was “a difference between patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation. Both of those behaviours need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated.” He added … Continue reading THREE MINI-ESSAYS on GOURMET VARIETIES of ABSOLUTELY PREPOSTEROUS BULLSHIT

THE AWFUL PERVASIVENESS of LIE CULTURE

Any Propagandist with a highly-visible (possibly-well-paid) gig probably can’t wait until all Facts are finally made illegal.  Facts will be outlawed, soon enough,  for threatening national security, sales figures and the overall happiness of the Consumer. As a person accustomed to expressing Strong Opinions… and as a very cautious commenter who won’t press an argument without being in possession of enough factual information, or direct experience, to support the argument… I honestly can’t remember the last time I was involved in a heated debate in which my opponent cited facts in order to “counter” my argument(s). This is as true … Continue reading THE AWFUL PERVASIVENESS of LIE CULTURE

UNMANNING THE BARRICADES

Increasingly, the Serfs bifurcate as though along the tracks of a ten-thousand-mile zipper: Pre-Literate Masses to the Right… vs… (on the Literate Left) Feminized Men and Idiosexual Women. These social changes, which have accelerated with digital urgency since the turn of the century, hurried along by the full-spectrum dominance of Social Engineering Media, and the opportunistic traumas of the 9/11 Wars, are laying the groundwork for a Revolution-proof Reich that could last centuries. Where will the Will to Smash the fortifications of the Ghost-Kings of the i-Corporations come from? From a revolutionary cell of Selfie-Masters in bondage gear they ordered … Continue reading UNMANNING THE BARRICADES

And You Trust These People with the Hydrogen Bomb?

There’s an unlikely New Repressed Minority deserving of our sympathetic, even scandalized, attention. Where is Gloria Allred? Where is Greta van Susteren? Where is RT? The BBC? Chomsky? America’s Puritanical roots are never more visible than when yet another attractive White female teacher or college student runs afoul of the bizarre single-standard in American Sex Laws. These desirable (youngish) women get in big trouble by seducing White teenaged males; you’d think that with the famous shortage of marriageable Black males, hot Black females would be getting in on this craze, but the Media have nothing to say on that. These Barbie … Continue reading And You Trust These People with the Hydrogen Bomb?

Where Idiot Activism and Social Engineering Meet

“So the next time you have the urge to call your little girl bossy? Take a deep breathe and praise her leadership skills instead.” Except when she’s being bossy, you silly fucks. There’s a big difference between leadership skills and telling your friends (with emphatic gestures) how they should sing or eat their noodles. “Jennifer Garner, Beyoncé, Jane Lynch, and More Urge Ban on ‘Bossy’” Yes, let’s make all the booboos go away by getting rid of those mean old wordy-words… at the behest of semi-literate propaganda stars! Welcome to Orwell’s Disney! Erm, wait, is this so when Hillary is … Continue reading Where Idiot Activism and Social Engineering Meet

CONSPIRACY THEORY AS NAIVE DECONSTRUCTIVE HISTORY (an excerpt)-by Floyd Rudmin

[“Floyd Rudmin is a member of the Psychology Department, University of Tromsø, Tromsø, Norway.”] Conspiracy theories arise when dramatic events happen, and the orthodox explanations try to diminish the events and gloss them over. In other words, conspiracy theories begin when someone notices that the explanations do not fit the facts. Take the case of explaining the past two decades of US “free-trade” schemes among countries in the Americas: FTA, NAFTA, and soon FTAA. These schemes began with two nations, then three, and soon four and more. The first was the 1989 Canada-US Free Trade Agreement (FTA) which set the … Continue reading CONSPIRACY THEORY AS NAIVE DECONSTRUCTIVE HISTORY (an excerpt)-by Floyd Rudmin
