  1. Here is what Marxism looks like these days. But don't forget, Marxism is a plan with a timeline, not an on-off switch. In taking over a different country, there are stages and some of them will not look like old-style Marxism until it's too late and time to execute the useful idiots. Rush Limbaugh mentioned the following article this morning. China bought the elitists in America. (btw - Lee Smith, the author, is the guy who helped Devin Nunes bust open Crossfire Hurricane and has been involved in other exposés about the Russia-Trump hoaxes.)

  3. Peter, That's the way scientific breakthroughs work, too. And great unexpected engineering feats. And, frankly great fellowship among humans. Don't forget that the use of money itself is based on a pattern of trust everyone adheres to by connecting dots nobody can prove. How can you prove someone will take your money for goods and services? You can't. You just assume it because you see lots of unrelated people doing just that. (Oh, there are laws about legal tender, but those only affect money within the context of the courts.) You can't have the good without the bad on dot-conn

  4. Polly weighs in on Cuties. I'm watching it now, so I don't have a comment yet. I do like the title, though: Cuties & Useful Idiots. (For those who know: . For everyone else: ) Michael NOTE: I'm halfway through. If you want facts and tons of them, this is an excellent video. But here's the shocker for out neck of the woods. Polly comes down HARD on Reason magazine for promoting this film. As she shows, several big-wigs at Reason support Cuties. The Reason people call it "art." Polly calls it "soft-porn" since she can't see any artistic reason for

  5. Snopes rated, by their rating standards, the claim to be ‘outdated’. Basically the truth or falsehood has been deemed irrelevant. Lol. A website whose claim to fame is being an unbiased fact finder dismisses inquiry with a relevancy wand.

  6. It looks like the whole Marxist infiltration of the USA school system is going to take a serious fall. The jig is up when it is stated as clearly as it is by a President of the USA. President Trump even mentioned Howard Zinn as one of the evil ones. Thank God. Whew!... Now the world can start becoming sane again. It will take a while to clean the mess up, but this particular Marxist project--anti-American indoctrination in the education system--that has lasted decades just took a fatal blow Michael

  7. Jules, If you get time, read Blood Pressure by Damon Runyon. When I first read it, I couldn't stop laughing. The setting is NYC of the 1930's, around Broadway. Gamblers, gangsters and people in that world. The link goes to an Australian site and says you are not supposed to read this if you are in the USA. Just click through if something similar for Canada appears and you can read it. This is one of the short stories the musical, Guys and Dolls, was based on. It has everything to do with what we are talking about here. Except a whole lot funnier. Michael

  9. Just in case there are still people left who think Soros-bashing is based on a myth that he funds violence, watch how criticizing him for funding the crap he now funds was used to shut down Newt Gingrich on Fox News. Here is Marie Harf (Obama insider) telling Newt: "George Soros doesn't need to be part of this conversation," as she nods her head in a school-marmish control freak manner. Newt then said, very slowly. Ohhh... kaaaay... it's verboten..." Here's a slightly longer version. I feel sorry for Harris Faulkner. It's obvious she is extremely uncomfortabl

  11. Yes, that's just the sort of pincer operation I mean. Add to teaching the young fake history and killing off the old who know or learned the real history: Teaching garbage methods of thinking and NOT teaching the Enlightenment values of rationality, objectivity, and judging the merits of an idea by its truth (the meaning of "truth" being changed to "social construct"). You have a populace who are the ignorant, defenseless, and even willing subjects of totalitarian rule. Ellen

Marjorie Taylor Greene: QAnon Supporter Likely Bound for Congress After Opponent Drops Out It appears that Kevin van Ausdal, her Democrat opponent, who kept bashing her for her divisiveness, dropped out of the race because he is getting a divorce and one of the settlement conditions is that he has to move out of the house. So he moves out of state? In the middle of an election where he is a candidate? With fund raising and everything and the Democratic party behind him? And he drops out? Hmmmmm... What's m

  15. Peter, Keep looking. You already know fake news exists, but the reality is much deeper and darker. Keep looking and noticing. It will sink in down on the lizard brain level where you want and believe today's institutions function like they are supposed to, that is, to give you correct and useful information, make a safe environment, keep the peace, etc. Then, on that level, the lizard brain level, imagine those institutions being corrupted beyond belief. Not the institutions per se, but the people running them. Then think about fake news. If it is starting to sound like mainstre

CDC Ignores Presidential Order and Moves Forward with Critical Race Theory Program — Pushing Marxist Garbage that Accuses Police of Racism Thankfully, as given in the article, Christopher Rufo is on the gig.

  19. Back to sports and Marxism. The NFL took a beating in the ratings this weekend. But the players did stand and sing the black national anthem while taking a knee for the USA National Anthem. Marx himself could not have been prouder. One of the strategies his followers have used to great effect is to topple the symbols of countries where they want communism to take over. Modern day Marxism has its own style which does not look like classical Marxism, but it is just as effective at destroying cultures, then countries, and just as deadly to the citizens (except for insiders).

  21. William, Just to be clear, HA Goodman is not the source of my speculations. I am aware he preaches about HC as if it were fact. I use a different form of reasoning, so my arguments and speculations are not really aligned with his. Also, I rarely watch his videos. I am glad he is out in the culture, though. And he seems like a nice enough guy. We need as many voices saying as many different things as possible. The elitist ruling class is waging war against freedom of speech. So long as they do that, I say fuck the elitist ruling class. It's time for them to stop ruling.

  23. D, At the subconscious level, pattern recognition is just that. Pattern recognition. At the conscious level it is called induction or inductive reasoning. (As opposed to deduction.) Much to the chagrin of determinists, deduction is not the whole shebang to find truth. Which is probably why they often deny truth exists. (One guy who is a harsh critic of Rand, Gary Nyquist--he runs a blog called Ayn Rand Contra Human Nature--denies that induction exists at all. When you realize that induction is pattern recognition, I don't think he realizes how goofy that sounds, especially

  24. Oh, my. I make a calm, reasonable, 34-word request to MSK to consider more than his mere two presumptuous hypotheses – my hurt feelings or vanity. He took it as an opportunity to concoct a >300-word blast. Much of it is a hyperbolic narrative portraying me as "constantly" making personal attacks on him and nary a word about his personal attacks on me. Fair and balanced is not his style. The truth is that he is about as innocent as the schoolyard bully who always says, “He started it.” He “constantly” dismisses what I say that he doesn't like by calling it a gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, or p

  27. William, If the vaccines come from efforts by President Trump's administration, yes. Absolutely it is fair. Kamala Harris has no medical reason whatsoever for this objection since medical reasons are, and will be, abundantly available and consultable. She just doesn't trust a forthcoming vaccine because she feels it will be developed too quickly and Orange Man Bad. If she ever gets power, she will miraculously become pro-vax again--even if it is based on half-assed medical information. That's just the way people like her think. btw - I am not in favor of mo

  28. Dg wrote, “The connections drawn within conspiracy theories may be wrong, but the existence of connections is not imagined. People, events and ideas throughout history are connected.” What is disheartening is people connecting the dots between portions of reality, but not in a scientific way. In a biased way their minds psychologically “prove” something that is untrue but agrees with a “feeling” or prejudice they have already established. Those hunches, like a slow moving storm in the Gulf of Mexico, gather momentum and become hurricanes of malice.

  29. The Pincer Plot for the destruction of Western Enlightenment civilization now emerges in its full horribleness. I've seen this clearly because of the simultaneous running of the basketball "woke" thread. On the young side, we have youth who have already been subjected to an educational system shaped by several generations of progressivist policies now being indoctrinated into "wokeness" which presents Western Enlightenment values as a white-privilege "metanarrative." On the elderly side we have people who were educated when Western Enlightenment values were still the basis

  30. Next follows Bahrain, and some interesting ramifications. It is clear that the moderate Arab states have long been tired of the Palestinians - who predictably are mighty upset at these 'betrayals' - for holding out of a peace accord. Next that with Iran's threat to the region, they'd rather side with Israel. And - the timing of these diplomatic moves: just shortly pre-US elections, shows they are openly throwing in with and supporting President Trump, for whom this is a feather in his statesman cap so bettering his chances for re-election. (Maybe, also gaining the USA as a potential ally).

  31. “Connecting the dots” can be done very poorly at one extreme to very well at the other extreme. On the very poor end are conspiracy theories, which typically have lots of dots and the connections are mostly imagined. On the opposite end are elegant mathematical proofs. There are enough dots – none superfluous – that the proof is not immediately obvious, and the connections are rigorous.

  32. Take your time. But if you limit yourself to only those two hypotheses, then you will find dead-ends and not get far. Both focus on the messenger rather than the message. Good luck.

  37. Sounds familiar: "You might claim—as most people do—that you have never been influenced by philosophy. I will ask you to check that claim. Have you ever thought or said the following? “Don’t be so sure—nobody can be certain of anything.” You got that notion from David Hume (and many, many others), even though you might never have heard of him. Or: “This may be good in theory, but it doesn’t work in practice.” You got that from Plato. Or: “That was a rotten thing to do, but it’s only human, nobody is perfect in this world.” You got it from Augustine. Or: “It may be true for you, but it’s not

  40. There are a few new changes. The Haha, Confused, and Sad reactions are no longer available. The Confused and Sad reactions are being abused for heckling and trolling, and since they will not longer be there, I am pretty sure the Haha reaction will take their place by those who wish to heckle and troll. So it has to go, too. With a large number of active posters, the impact of petty negative personal garbage will become so diminished, it will no longer denigrate the environment of the forum. But for now, these negative reactions are simply an easy manner for one or two posters to
