1. As usual dissident alt-right websites are the ones doing the job legacy journalists won’t do. Is there a HALF-WHITEWASHING campaign being conducted by Hivemind operatives to erase from the public sphere any evidence of Chris Harper-Mercer’s anti-cop, anti-White, pro-black radicalism ideology?
According to initial police reports, Mercer left a manifesto behind at the scene. Where is that manifesto? Was it burned by Narrative “cleaners”? The public deserves to know what motivated Mercer’s murderous rampage, so that there’s a chance to thwart potential future attackers before they snap.
2. Another heavenly trumpet blast heralds The Trumpening. Trump says Eisenhower’s 1950s illegal alien deportation plan dubbed “Operation Wetback” is a model for his own immigration plan.
It’s very effective of Trump to remind Americans that what’s he’s suggesting we do about illegal invaders isn’t (too) racist, beyond the pale or practically impossible, as so many shrieking shitlibs want you to believe. It was done before without the gates of hell opening, and that means it can be done again.
This is another good moment to remind the studio audience how much more COMPETENT 1950s America was compared to 2015 America.
3. Related: Trump is back up to 34% in the latest IPSOS poll. ¡Jabe! is down to 4% in the new Pew poll.
Gonna have to agree with the Trumpendoge here. Chihuahuas are shit dogs. Ugly, nasty little yappers. Diminutive, thin-skinned, and useless, just like our New Diversity America.
4. Here’s shocking news (not): South Africa’s murder rate is up in the past few years, reversing a slow decline in the murder rate over the previous years. Nearly 49 people are murdered every day in South Africa, and it’s safe to say White Afrikaaners are not the ones doing the murdering.
Someone else can check the numbers, but I believe lovely Honduras remains the number one murder nation of the world. Clearly the solution for these wretchedly homicidal countries is to circulate propaganda photos of a dead kid to ethnomasochistic shitlib SWPL Americans so that they will open the US border to millions of murderous Hondurans and Bantus. That’ll level the worldwide murder rate (lower the sending countries’ crime rate and raise the US’s crime rate) and make gated community bubble-headed status whoring spergitarians like Bryan Caplan and Alex Tabbarok happy.
I have a better solution: Separate countries.
5. BigGalYoga. Namasticate.
6. More research points some of the blame for the rising diabetes and obesity epidemics at endocrine-disrupting chemical (EDCs).
Known EDCs include bisphenol A (BPA) found in food can linings and cash register receipts, phthalates found in plastics and cosmetics, flame retardants and pesticides. The chemicals are so common that nearly every person on Earth has been exposed to one or more.
Westerners have had decades now receiving the harsh blowback of the industrial/better-living-through-chemistry revolution. Blowback from the iPhag/information revolution is starting to sting. And, as CH has predicted, the eventual and inevitable robot/sexbot revolution will usher a blowback so powerful it will shatter the foundations of the economic and sexual markets. Prepare for an era of accelerated gene-culture-environment co-evolution the likes of which humanity hasn’t seen since, oh, the Toba Event or the Black Death.
7. This is a great thread about smoking, and its unusually rapid demise as a social bonding ritual in the US. Although I’m not conspiratorially minded, I like Bixxy Noodles comment:
It was never about smoking per se. Think of it as more like a proof-of-concept roll-out for a social control system, which has now gone from beta to alpha to gold release.
Smoking was an easy target because its social pattern was recent and not deeply ingrained. But it WAS ubiquitous and associated with a highly addictive substance.
I like to point out to fat acceptance losers that the insanely effective anti-smoking campaign in America is proof that aggressive, sustained, and widespread social shaming can indeed work to change human behavior on a large scale. The success of anti-smoking PSAs, regulations, adn social stigmatism is a mild rebuke to strict hereditarians who hold that nothing changes in a culture without the human genetic substructure changing first. This isn’t an argument in favor of blank slatism by any means, but it is a reminder that humans also have genes which make them susceptible to feeling bad when ostracized by their tribe. What worked for smoking may not work as effectively for fatty fattitude, but it’s worth a try. And by “a try” I mean a real try, not a half-assed try that spares fat fucks’ feelings.
Anyhow, Bixxy is onto something. It’s easy to envision the ruling class learning all the wrong lessons from the success of their anti-smoking propaganda, and applying those lessons to perfecting the science of mass mind control on a host of issues that are deleterious to the well-being of middle class White Americans.
As for smoking itself, one other reason it disappeared so (relatively) quickly from the culture is because people really were prematurely dying from it by the truckloads. The evidence, laboratory and real world, is that smoking industrially packaged cigarettes in any frequency beyond the casual, socially lubricating one or two cigs is obviously bad for you. The obviousness of smoking’s lethality doubtless helped supercharge the wider shaming incentives to encourage people to quit.
But this topic is trickier than that. It may be true, for instance, that getting a little bit of nicotine into your blood has health benefits, because it acts as a minor stressor which in turn activates anti-aging cellular mechanisms. So while smoking two packs a day will send you to an early grave, smoking one or two hand-rolled, lightly-filtered cigs made from fresh-leafed tobacco a couple times per week might actually improve a number of physiological markers.
The social angle of smoking is equally as interesting as the physiological angle. Smoking does make men appear more masculine. (It’s a mixed result for women, who can either look trashy or sultry while smoking.) Smoking does seem to lighten moods and grease conversation. I smoke a cig now and then, (mostly, when I find myself in the rare venue that allows it), and I get a lot of leery looks from SWPL chicks who want to join or ask me in a roundabout way why I don’t conform to social expectations about smoking in public. It’s a pretty good passive opener, I’ve found. My total inhalation, though, is probably no more than a few hand-rolled cigs per month. I’m sure a lot of former smokers have neural wiring that disposes to addiction, so for them total abstention is the only answer.
Despite my occasional indulgence and admission that smoking is a masculine social ritual, I think the war against smoking in the US and the banning of it from public venues was generally a good thing. Occasionally, the elite get it right (or rather, used to get it right). Besides the health factor, it’s also pleasing to come home with the scent of a woman’s perfume on my clothes rather than the scent of a woman’s perfume + stale cigarette smoke.
A couple of final points: the en masse abandonment of smoking is in line with the general Western trend toward abandonment of male masculinity (and embrace of female masculinity — I think there are more young female smokers than young male smokers now). American men are healthier and less smelly, but they’re also more effeminate.
And, it’s useful to think of the anti-smoking movement as the precursor to the rise of the SJWs. Smoking was first reviled as unhealthy, then it was reviled as gauche, offensive, and low class. The sort of thing BadWhites do. This would become the template for our current crop of SJW witch burners.
8. Randall Parker on Peak Median Income, by US county. And here he reminds spergitarians caught up in their fantasies about mass incarceration of minor drug offenders that only 17% of state prison inmates are there primarily for drug offenses. Bottom line: the US locks up a lot of ultraviolent bastards for long periods of time, and this makes everyone safer, and probably* has the beneficial knock-off effect of reducing the fertility of the worst of the worst, which will pay huge dividends for your children and grandchildren.
*Chicks do dig ultraviolent jerks, but if the jerks are locked up before their reproductive years really kick into high gear, and conjugal visits are prohibited, it’s possible to put a real dent in their genetic contributions to future generations.
9. P. D. Mangan has a new book coming out titled Muscle Up. I’ve learned a lot about nutrition, supplements, optimizing muscle growth, anti-aging strategies, and the concept of hormesis from his site, so this book deserves a reading. And the proof is in the author. Mangan looks in better shape than most men half his age. Other good posts: Increase autophagy to extend your lifespan. How to simultaneously lose fat and gain muscle.
10. America’s art schools are now nothing more than art-less propaganda vehicles for anti-White male, anti-Western hatred. The institutional structure of academic arts and humanities must be destroyed and the earth under their smoldering foundations salted for good measure. Kill it all with fire, and watch in wonder as new vegetation emerges and long-dormant saplings stretch their leaves to the sun.
