Time to fess up: I have been cucked by The Donald.
I outline many of my longer articles on Evernote. I don’t suppose this one is going to be written anytime soon, so I’m just reprinting the notes in almost unredacted form. Public humiliation is part of the cuckoldry fetish, after all.
I suppose the very last point still stands, at least.
I suppose there’s also some probability that I have finally succumbed to Trump Derangement Syndrome and that the last few days were just The Donald playing 666D interuniversal Teichmuller chess.
10 Reasons To Support the Trumpenreich
Anyhow, that’s the #blackpill out of my system. I’ll have something more analytical in a few hours.
I’ll have a more serious post on this soon enough, but for now, reactions from some of the more important and interesting players.
Although they are present, the “anti-globalist” crowd – Steve Bannon and his allies, Stephen Miller and Michael Anton – are relegated to the back, while the likes of Jared Kushner occupy a much more central position. (Isn’t Kremlinology fun?)
This might be relevant since even the NYT has painted this as a battle between Kushner and Bannon, which the former won.
Conveniently summarized in this NYT map.
The strike appears to have been ordered at around the same time that Trump was meeting with Xi Jinping, which would make it a remarkably barefaced power play. Now I know that China is Russia’s friend only by convenience (and vice versa), but still, the lack of a condemnation is rather surprising even by China’s usually milquetoast standards. I would note that even the usually combatatitive Global Times has stayed neutralish.
As neocons-in-all-but-name, so of course were the neoliberal interventionists, with one “innovation” – led by Hillary Clinton herself, they are explicitly tying their support for Trump’s “invade” agenda with the eternal flip side of that coin, “invite.”
Whether or not this constitutes a true “zrada,” or betrayal, on Trump’s part, I am afraid he has opened a Pandora’s box that will not be closed anytime soon. For instance, bigwig CNN journalist was already posing the question to Ivanka:
The journalists have fallen in line:
That said, for the most diehard proponents of the ROG conspiracy, such as Louise Mensch, this was just one more ploy by Putler’s puppet to get her off the Russia trail:
Jeffrey Goldberg and Julia Ioffe:
Sentiment here ranges from deep unease to outright disavowal.
The biggest critic of Donald Trump’s decision was Donald Trump himself, t minus 4 years.
Paul Joseph Watson has thrown in his MAGA hat:
To be sure, some people such as Mike Cernovich had a 4d chess hypothesis ready to go:
Partisangirl was more skeptical:
And with Peter Brimelow, or whoever runs the VDARE account:
The arcanest of the arcane, Runglish #frogtwitter:
As for myself, I think its time to transition from frogs to Baathism:
Though TBF it was always inevitable:
We all know what the US State Department and its PR lackeys (the Western media) thought about it.
How about everyone else?
What Crimeans thought about it:
What the Crimean Tatars thought about it:
What the Euromaidanists thought about it:
What normal people thought about it:
Ukraine has committed to celebrating diversity at Eurovision 2017.
Russia agrees with this noble sentiment. You would be hard pressed to find a bigger fan of diversity than Russia.
Now Kiev don’t seem to be very happy about this, they are alleging that she entered Crimea without getting their permission. Very absurd demands. They seem to be under the strange delusion that Crimea belongs to them, or something.
They have even added her name to the Peacekeeper kill list and are threatening to bar her entry to the contest. This is an assertion of ableist privilege, and is absolutely inexcusable for a country that claims to respect European values.
There have also been hysterical accusations that Russia is cynically politicizing this affair, hoping that Ukraine either bars her entry, or that the audience booes her, to score sympathy points. This is complete nonsense. Everybody knows that Eurovision doesn’t and never had a political bone in its body. It has always been a celebration of pure culture and musical talent.
Now that I have finally become who I am, it is time to reveal who I am.
Actually I was always an open book on this matter, but still, it would be useful to lay it all out in one place for easy reference.
My paternal side is pure Aryan R1a master race. They were mostly farmers, and occasionally priests.
Despite Karlin’s Judaic connotations, I have been unable to identify any Jewish ancestors there, and 23andme confirmed it. One possible version is that the Karlins were non-Jewish residents or neighbors of the village Karlin near Pinsk, modern Belarus. A more exotic possibility is that there was a Swedish or German “son of Karl” in the distant past.
My paternal-maternal ancestors hailed from the Bryansk-Kaluga region that neighbors Belarus and Ukraine.
My maternal side is more… “cosmopolitan.”
The paternal side there are Dagestani notables (Lak to be precise).
On the maternal side, one half are mostly or purely Slavic. One ancestor was ennobled under Alexander III on attaining the requisite military rank; the extended family still has the letters patent signed by the Tsar.
The other half from the maternal side hails from Tsarist Odessa, and is a mixture of Russian, Italian (yes, 23andme is accurate on that!), and Jewish stock. They moved to Moscow soon after the Revolution.
PS. Now that I’m in Russia, I am thinking of taking the opportunity to properly research and record my family tree, especially since many of my relatives are advancing in age.
If you have experience with geneology, is there any particular software you’d recomment?
I expect to work with ~100-200 people, at least initially, so it doesn’t need to support huge databases or native support for research. It also needs to have a good, reliable export function, just in case I later decide to switch software. Cost is not a factor, within reasonable bounds (<$100, no subscriptions).
I have been looking at some of the following programs: Family Historian; Ahnenblatt; GRAMPS; The Next Generation; Brothers Keeper; Ancestral Quest; RootsMagic (Family Tree Maker is tied to Ancestry.com, and Legacy Family Tree has bad user reviews, so they’re probably out of the running).
My current (weak) preference is to go for Family Historian, but I remain open to other suggestions.
Beta males are the builders of civilization. You just can’t do without them. If their interests aren’t catered for, society devolves into a tribalistic jungle.
When traditional mores – that is, the masculine norms that underpin civilization – collapse, female hypergamy is unleashed, leading eventually to soft polygamy. Ironically, this overwhelmingly benefits just a small minority of alpha males (the “alpha fucks, beta bucks” strategy, as per Heartiste – and confirmed by science).
Becoming a player, or PUA, is a natural adaptation of the rational beta male to his environment. To remain in the sexual market he is going to mimic alpha traits, which is ultimately what “game” is all about. The reason many women consider players to be “creeps” is because game is a form of reproductive cheating.
There are many possible solutions to this, both individual and social.
One thing that’s definitely pointless, though, is to blame or resent women for following their instincts (except, perhaps, as instructional examples). It’s not something they have any control over. That is why the MRA crowd is little better than the radfems.
The Guardian now loves them some Bush:
Via Stuart Ritchie:
This looks about right.
Opinions on the validity of g seem to mostly correlate with your position on the economic part of left-right spectrum. This explains why academia is so allergic towards it, while the otherwise SJW-wy but libertarian-heavy, autistic, and high-IQ rationalist/futurist crowd takes such an unexpectedly close interest in it.
Charles Murray happens to be a libertarian himself.
Fun fact: Eurasianists are left-libertarians according to this chart. This makes sense, since Eurasianism was basically invented by Tsarist Orientalist multiculturalists.
… It will quickly turn into a Third World dump and beg to be let back into the Trumpenreich.
Seriously, this is the dumbest idea ever.
I mean, go ahead. It’s pretty much a lost cause at this point, the ghost of America’s Christmas future a few more decades down the line. Only half its population are Whites or from high-performing Asian groups (closer to 30% amongst children).
They won’t even have the Facebooks and Twitters to keep them afloat.
Silicon Valley derives much of its power from having unrestricted access to the vast US internal market. But what possible reasons could the tech giants they have for preferring a market of 40 million to one of 280 million?
Silicon Valley will flee for Boston or Austin faster than you can say “exit.”
And then the Hollywood elites will forget their high principles and decamp to some new nest of degeneracy.
There will be what you could call a restoration of the historical balance. California will drift into Mexico’s sphere of influence, as it was prior to 1847.
Okay, I was exaggerating; it won’t literally be a Third World dump, though GDP per capita will probably fall to something more in line with its human capital (especially once the smart fraction brains drain away), maybe a Greek-like $25,000 / capita instead of the current $60,000. Still, it won’t be a bad place to live in by any major metric, by global standards. I agree with Fred Reed that many Americans tend to have a rather unrealistic view of Mexico, and California will be transitional between the two.
Still, I do think many Californians instinctively understand that their living standards will plummet after Calexit, even those who are very triggered by Trump, so they’ll be doing a lot of “checking out” but very little actual “leaving.”
