  1. Pro-Trump Objectivist and psychologist Dr. Michael Hurd weighs in on the matter of Q: "Why Conspiracy Theories Steered Us So Wrong" Excerpts: "Consider the events of 2020 and early 2021. Conspiracy theories told us the Chinese Communist Party and the Democratic Party (same thing) plotted and brilliantly carried out a scheme to impose coronavirus on America, to destroy America’s economy and divide the country. While there’s no doubt Communists in China and America WANT to do this, they’re not nearly that brilliant. If they were that brilliant, they wouldn’t be Communists. What’s much m
  2. Hmmm...Gates's critics have claimed that he himself was not so much an innovator as much as an appropriator of other's work. Or, to reluctantly paraphrase Hussein Obama, "he didn't build that." But then again, maybe he DID contribute some things on his own initiative. Taking that premise, and the Stadler comparison...I mentioned in another thread that Rand's framework is a reaction to Christianity, with a nod to Nietzsche, and that Jordan Peterson has said that we're culturally Christians in America. And Christians believe in a strict separation of good and evil (and the knowledge of being
  3. Peter, it's obvious that we've got nothing constructive to say to each other, so, walking away from this. Go in peace.
  4. Thanks. It's not where I started out a year ago with all this, but it seems to be the predominant opposition to the Swamp, so it can't be avoided. Even ATLAS SHRUGGED is steeped in the imagery, even if it's as a challenge, but still. I guess Jordan Peterson was onto something when he said that American is really still Christian deep-down, even the atheists, culturally speaking.
  5. Michael, I understand all that, and could let slide the overriding pessimism of his posts, if it weren't for his own constant swipes at the rest of us about all this when we're trying to work out what we are seeing with our eyes, his persistence in straw-man arguments, and his air of superiority over us "fools" and our so-called "conspiracy theories." So it goes both ways. I'll leave it at that, I've said my peace about it. But yes, I'd rather him not bear "false witness", as you say, to his own eyes.
  6. Reminds me of the atheists of the Matt Dillahunty variety, who are so logical in their takedowns of Christians, attacking apologists for finding biblical support for slavery, but then turn right around to trash libertarianism and Objectivism, while supporting communism and Antifa. So smart, so ready to root out authoritarianism and Nazism/ power-lust in Christians, yet so blind to their own power-lust and blind to the slavery of communism.
  7. "None so blind..." You're waiting for criminals to provide you with incontrovertible proof. And you're missing the forest for the trees, Peter. This has been a long time coming. If you can't see it, that's your blindness. And I'm not just talking about what the MSM is currently hiding from us, and what the state is lying to us about. I'm talking the "long march through the institutions", the stuff that Ayn Rand and others have been WARNING US ABOUT FOR DECADES. It's Here. And this has NOTHING to do with "conspiracy theory"; whatever the Q business may or may not be, that's just one facet of
  8. When I see people condemning Trump for the January Capital incident, and smearing peaceful protesters as "insurrectionists" while minimizing or ignoring the left's OUTRIGHT support of BLM and ANTIFA's reign of terror all reminds me when Pontius Pilate offered to free one prisoner, Jesus or Barabbas, the zealous murderer. The mob chose to free Bababbas and to crucify Christ. It's not an exact parallel, but it is an ominous one, nonetheless...Perhaps it's because it's easier to crucify the passive person, who practices restraing, who offers no unearned threat, as opposed to the violent
  9. Well, that's all well and good, then, Peter. But, rest assured: No matter HOW peaceful, how principled, and how morally correct your particular form of resistance might be, no matter how RIGHT, it will be seen as ALT-RIGHT by the Left, and you will be accused of all the same things that the Proud Boys and others have been. Ask the libertarians who've tried to make peace with the left, only to be smeared as Nazis, or the ARI, who was smeared by Paul Krugman (whatever ARI's faults, they are not the ones Krugman invented). And you'll be scratching your head when it's YOU who is accused of seditio
  10. Why? So you can clutch your pearls some more? You probably think Kyle Rittenhouse is guilty, too. Stay cowering in the basement, where you belong.
  11. deleted. Hyperbole. Peter's not a Judas, just a "useful idiot" to the cause of the deep state.
  12. Perfect. 'Nuff said. ("Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose...")
  13. EXACTLY. Maybe we should take him to Pontius Pilate? After all, we may not have any laws that allow us crucify a man, but Rome does...I mean, flogging him is just not enough! Remember Caeser! You have a duty! To keep the peace, so CRUCIFY HIM! ("We have no king but Caeser!")
  14. For fuck's sake, Peter, any errors Trump made comparison to the legal and MORAL crimes of the left/right swamp coalition. Trump called for people to PEACEFULLY assemble, called for no violence, the actions started BEFORE he was done speaking, the whole thing was a set-up from the get-go. Yet Trump and the patriotic Americans are the ones demonized and thrown under the bus. I don't want to hear it.
  15. They say a lot of things, don't they...but usually, they're talking out of their asses, so....
  16. Things keep changing so fast...does this mean, then, that the trial is over? Done? Kaput? And no repercussions for Trump? Acquited? (Just dotting i's and crossing t's, the way things have been...just a half hour ago, PJ media sent an email saying the witnesses WOULD be called, but then updated THAT to say a deal was reached...For all I know, there's a 3rd impeachment planned, the way this circus has gone...)
  17. Alan Watts on the subject of eugenics, and "the road to hell being paved with good intentions..." ("A plague of 'virtuous people'...")
  18. Wrong. "If the glove doesn't fit, you must acquit." (I kid, I kid...)

  20. If you haven't seen it, and would be willing to give a Marvel movie another shot, can I recommend 2014's CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER? It's a little outside the formula of the other movies (though still connected). It's more of an espionage/political thriller, and a little bit of a throwback to the 70's/80's movies like that (even has Robert Redford to add to the flavor). But even more than that, it's pretty relevant to the election/deep state swamp chaos we just saw with the courts, military, etc. (Spoiler alert: the climax was a wee-bit prophetic.) And oddly enough, despite Chris Evan
  21. I had just finished watching a movie about Paul the Apostle today (PAUL THE EMISSARY), and it made me think of Valliant's thesis. So I went thumbing through CREATING CHRIST today to see if he had referenced the beheading of Paul, and if so, how he reconciled it with the idea that Paul was a friend of the Romans as part of a plan to pacify Jewish rebellion. To my amusement, I came across a couple of references to the word "psy-op", and this one in particular made me think of the accusations against Q being based on a Russian psy-op to pacify the conservatives, or the root out the Trump support
  22. I saw some debate over that, that Insurrection Acts aren't "signed", but invoked...seems like a nitpick, but I have no clue about such details.
  23. They may as well come right out and admit that they cheated, at this point... "The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election"
