Too many American politicians at all levels of government have come to believe that your money is their money. Federal, state and local tax rates are set annually and often arbitrarily based on the issues that elected officials and tax managers consider to be important. Input from the public is basically unwelcome except at election time but, even then, the breakdown of dollars and cents that will be coming out of one’s pocket is rarely under discussion.

It is past time to consider what the pie in the sky being proposed by the Democrats, since they are currently in power, will actually cost the American taxpayer. Bear in mind, that Democratic Party proposals that are now being floated are directed at certain constituencies that the party is seeking to weld into an unbeatable coalition that will defy all Republican attempts to recover either Congress or the Presidency. Similar activity is taking place at the state and local level. There is no consideration of the fact that government, at least theoretically, is intended to benefit all of the citizenry, not a select portion thereof that will henceforth be required to deliver the vote loyally. Politicians who manipulate the system with that in mind should be sent to jail, but alas, in the US system no one is ever punished, even if they start a war under false premises as did former President George W Bush and his apparatchiks.

Under the Democrats, the entire process whereby the spoils derived from being power are distributed is being driven by social engineering, i.e. race and gender. One of President Joe Biden’s first moves upon taking office was to propose special payments and other incentives for black farmers, who, his administration argued, had been disadvantaged because they had been systematically denied loans for many years. It should seem outrageous that federal tax dollars were to be used to support only one racial group, but not a single Democrat appeared to be disturbed. Fortunately, a federal court ruled favorably in a case brought by a white farmer claiming that racially directed government assistance is unconstitutional as it violates the “equal protection under the law” principle. The Democrats are, however, continuing to push for their program of tying blacks firmly into their coalition, even if it means creating a system that is manifestly and even transparently unfair.

One of the most bizarre news stories of the past several weeks has to be the revelation that the Defense Department will be paying for transgender surgery for those biological males in the ranks that want to become women and vice versa. One can honestly accept that there are transgender individuals in the so-called armed services and they deserve respect for what they perhaps quite genuinely are, but this goes well beyond that. In the usual squeaky-voiced pander much favored by the Biden Administration, Veteran Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough announced during “Pride Week” that the new guidelines would create a “safe and caring” environment for all veterans, while also citing the “dark history” of discrimination against gay and transgender military personnel. “Safe and caring?” Our military? Hope they never have to fight a real war.

The White House also got into the promotion, releasing a statement that “President Biden believes that gender identity should not be a bar to military service and that America’s strength is found in its diversity. This question of how to enable all qualified Americans to serve in the military is easily answered by recognizing our core values. America is stronger, at home and around the world, when it is inclusive. The military is no exception. Allowing all qualified Americans to serve their country in uniform is better for the military and better for the country because an inclusive force is a more effective force. Simply put, it’s the right thing to do and is in our national interest.”

The statement is like many, Executive Order signing statements coming out of the Biden White House, complete nonsense. The historically most effective fighting forces have had high levels of cohesion, not diversity and it is difficult to imagine what they national interest would be in having an army that can’t fight. Transgenders were, in fact, first allowed to serve, predictably, under President Barack Obama before being blocked by President Donald Trump. They are now again a cherished part of the military community under Honest Joe Biden and both active duty transgenders and veterans will soon be able to receive gender-transition surgeries, mostly through the Veterans Affairs (VA) health care coverage. It is estimated that there are now 15,000 transgender individuals on active duty while possibly as many as 135,000 more are veterans. The numbers seem impossibly large, but gender transition surgeries will now be covered by the string of military hospitals and the veteran healthcare network.

Bear in mind that transgender transformation surgery is not urgent care or even health maintenance: it is an optional procedure intended to turn G.I. Joe into G.I. Jane or the reverse. Also bear in mind that the US taxpayer submits to the burden of the enormous and growing so-called Defense budget in the belief that it exists to protect the United States, not to change genders of American citizens who might be enlisting in the military precisely to obtain that benefit. According to a recent estimate the cost of the procedure can range from $15,000 up to more than $50,000 depending on how extensive the surgery is. Multiply that by 150,000 to get some idea of what the pander to gender obsessed fanatics in the Democratic Party and among its limousine liberals base will cost the average taxpayer, who will get nothing in return from it.

The Pentagon, of course, is fully engaged in the war on extremism and is also actively promoting the racist Critical Race Theory while rooting out extremists, which means white people, who are evil supremacists both genetically and by definition. CRT is, by the way, a remarkable Marxist-based invention that blames most bad things in America on white people. And it is being forced on the public by the usual zealots with the claim that it will make everyone the beneficiary of “equity.” On the contrary it makes Americans less well educated and dependent on government for handouts.

Even counties and school districts that have had no racial issues are being forced to hire Diversity & Equity Managers and high-priced consultants to explain the new reality. As a manifestation of CRT thinking, Fred Reed observes how increasingly in American schools “Math curricula are being dumbed down because blacks do poorly at math, English grammar instruction eliminated because blacks can’t or won’t learn it, entrance exams for the elite and demanding high schools eliminated because blacks don’t pass them, SATs dropped because blacks score poorly on them, promotion exams in police departments eliminated because blacks don’t pass them. Entrance requirements at medical school are lowered because not enough blacks pass them, AP courses in high school eliminated because too few blacks get into them… White parents are forced to see their children subjected to what they regard as obscene, semiliterate, violent, stupid, a culture dominated by what seems to them, (and would to any First World country) the opposite of cultivation.”

And, to be sure, the military is leading the way to join the new world order. Seeking to promote both racial and gender diversity in its ranks, the Navy has created a task force designed to “combat discrimination,” which inter alia requires sailors to take a pledge to “acknowledge all lived experiences and intersectional identities,” whatever that is supposed to mean. The Army is also doing its bit. In a recent appearance before Congress Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark Milley “defended the teaching of critical race theory at West Point and, referencing the January 6 Capitol riot, said, ‘it is important that we train and we understand … and I want to understand white rage. And I’m white.’”

Milley, who seems unaware of the “black rage” that has been burning, looting and shooting over the past year, particularly stressed the impact of the January 6th Capitol Building “insurrection,” saying “What is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the Constitution of the United States of America? What caused that?”

It is important to seek to understand what Milley has bought into: putting the military squarely on the side of the administration in the cultural wars currently being endured while making clear who the enemy is: white America. Some cynics observed that Milley and the military-industrial-complex behind him, who collectively speaking cannot any longer fight and win a war, are chiefly concerned with the hundreds of billions of dollars that they enjoy annually. To secure that it is necessary to play nice with whatever the White House, and the woke media, are peddling. Again, it all comes down to money that is stolen from taxpayers in this country. Time for the taxpayers themselves to put an end to the nonsense.

    Critical Race Theory was hatched by the same Hatemongers who promote “Diversity” and “Multiculturalism”. The Main Objective of Critical Race Theory (CRT) is the elimination of the White Western Race and the Values and Institutions created by this group. History is filled with Wars and other forms of violence owing to Race and conflicting Cultures, so on its face CRT should have ZERO credibility. It seems only in White Countries does the hate filled dogma of CRT gain any traction. All other Racial groups are smart enough to immediately reject CRT and the Hatemongers promoting CRT. Who are these people promoting this corrosive CRT dogma? You know who they are.

    Transcription (Thanks Andrei)

    This … is the first day of your new life. What was yesterday doesn’t mean anything now. Who you were before, nobody cares now. The important thing now is who you will be today.

    What do you know about yourself?

    What are you capable of?

    Questions may go unanswered, but

    Will you be able to sleep soundly later?

    Know yourself, know the limit of your possibilities … To hell with the limits. Are you ready to break?

    Every day the pain hardens you here. It was you who decided to prove something to yourself. The commander is here only so that you see an enemy in him, because without the enemy, there is no battle. Because without battle there is no victory. But in reality, the main enemy is you. The you of yesterday. Your task is to track down the enemy, catch up with him, overcome him, be better than him and become the victor. Because tomorrow is the first day of your new life.

    Here is the video of the Chinese army focusing on the values ​​of the soldier as a defender of his own, as Chesterton said, “the soldier should not so much hate what he faces, but rather love those he defends”

    White people are not in any immediate danger of losing their power, at least the ruling class that is. But if they keep shooting themselves in the foot they will have nobody to blame but themselves.

    You cannot offshore jobs for Wall Street and continue to create new wealth. But it is an effective way to rob the poor, just like Paul Ryan’s Libertarian tax law that we’re all stuck with at the moment. The US economy is 70% consumer spending. The post WWII elite class war on consumer unions and wages has captured both parties, because most of our politicians only listen to big donors. The sole purpose of gathering donations is to give it to private Corporate broadcasters. Promoting the general welfare is long lost in all this noise. It is a broken system immersed in a sea of lies overwhelmingly perpetrated by the likes of Friedman, Reagan, Ryan. The Democrats play the same game, but more duplicitously.

  10. “One can honestly accept that there are transgender individuals in the so-called armed services and they deserve respect for what they perhaps quite genuinely are, but this goes well beyond that” – Oh, there’s nothing “genuine” about it, and the last thing they “deserve” is “respect” for what they are. Do heterosexuals “deserve respect” for what they are too or how about those who aren’t gender confused? Who talks this way? This is the sort of nonsensical drivel that has permeated our culture, and helped to drive us into Clown Nation status.

  11. Cascadian says:

    Democracy? You can’t handle Democracy!!

  12. “It is important to seek to understand what Milley has bought into: putting the military squarely on the side of the administration in the cultural wars currently being endured while making clear who the enemy is: white America.” Our enemies are white Americans and those that can pass as white. Pasty Milley could use some sun but Milley is so white that he’d burn like a vampire if he went outside. Our brown brothers need to understand that white skinned people like Milley have their money and they need to get it back from them. Whose selling military weapons to police departments to kill them? Milley and his cohorts. Why is Milley sanctioning, training death squads, and killing people across Africa, Asia, and Central America but not doing the same to most Europeans? How about the Palestinians, their suffering, and the mass murder of Yemeni children? Our foreign policy is white people murdering brown people. It is white on brown crime on a genocidal scale. No one calling them out via CRT to challenge their legitimacy. Why?

    What if our brown brothers and their allies engaged in more of those peaceful scorched earth protests but in places like the wealthy suburbs of Arlington Virginia? Be honest people, do you have any racial solidarity with these white people? Are they your bastards? Do you claim them? Would you die for them because that maybe their plan? If their anti-white pogrom blew up in their faces would you mourn them? Think about it! We could create holocaust like museums in their honor to teach people how these white colored Americans were persecuted for spreading their notions of white values by bombing people of color, training death squads against people of color, supporting tyrants to oppress people of color, committing genocides against people of color, causing massive displacements of people of color, supporting white skinned apartheids, and sanctioning people of color across the world while engaging in smug systematic racism with their aristocratic credential fetishism and corporate cronyism at home. But people like Fred Reed would rather rile up their brown brothers by saying that they are helplessly stupid instead of pointing to the elite’s white skin and their aforementioned crimes against humanity. Great plan! White nationalist will be ranting about IQ all the way to the ovens. I really need to stop commenting before I find myself in an oven with them. From my understanding playing defensive leads to conservatives losing.

  13. It is past time to consider what the pie in the sky being proposed by the Democrats, since they are currently in power, will actually cost the American taxpayer.

    Speaking of pies in the sky, Democrats say they will only agree to a $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill if Republicans submit to a separate $6 trillion strictly Democrat bill, the largest bill in US history.

    That $6 trillion will be dedicated to “human infrastructure” — i.e. to whatever will further reinforce Democrat power, such as tranny depravity, anal supremacy, the war on white hetero-males, reparations for blacks, paying off the deficits in blue states, and so on.

    The scary part is that Democrats can get their $6 trillion via the “reconciliation” process, which will get around the Senate filibuster. Democrats will get their $6 trillion without any Republican votes or input. All they need is 50 Democrat votes in the US Senate, plus Queen Kamala’s vote.

    That $6 trillion is crucial for Democrats, since they know that most Americans are fed up with Democrat filth. Democrats know they will lose big in the next mid-term congressional elections (8 Nov 2022), at least in red states and swing states where Democrats cannot rig elections.

    Democrats tried to get control of all congressional elections nationwide with their S.1 “Screw the People” Act. It passed the House, but it failed in the US Senate.

    So now Democrats are focusing on getting that $6 trillion to buy as much control as they can, while they can.

    Meanwhile Republicans have two major liabilities…

    [1] Some “Republicans” are more Democrat than the Democrats. Examples include Mitt Romney of Utah, Rob Portman of Ohio, and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. These little maggots are 100% “woke.” They worship BLM, Antifa, “gay pride,” and CRT. They are pushing for Democrats to get their $6 trillion.

    [2] Republicans tend to repeatedly underestimate Democrat evil and relentlessness. Democrats will tell any lie and rig any election to get their way.

    Regarding the Pentagon, it is no longer concerned with “protecting America.” It is purely a money grab. For example, Lockheed sold the F-35 jet to the US government (at $88 million each) with the promise that the jet would be good until 2070. Now, after less than 10 years of service, Lockheed says the F-35 must be retired, and a new boondoggle must take its place.

    The US Navy wants to replace its new “Littoral Combat Ships,” plus a few of its new submarines, each of which costs tens of billions of dollars.

    The US “Space Force” wants $10 trillion for war-fighting capabilities on the moon. (!!!) [Yes you read that right.]

    The examples are endless. Military contractors no longer produce things that work. They intentionally produce garbage so that cost overruns will keep the federal dollars flowing in forever.

    It’s nothing but a money-grab. This is one reason why the USA will have no chance if it ever gets into a major shooting war. Another reason is “wokeness” and “diversity,” which is the worst possible thing that can happen to any military.

    Imagine what would have happened to Imperial Roman Legions if they had all gone faggot, tranny, and anti-Roman.

  14. End payroll taxes and make it the responsibility of every taxpayer to save enough to cover it.

    You’ll see a) an IRS so overburdened with collection and enforcement that it becomes useless except to single out the most affluent and egregious tax cheats, and b) an entire lower-to-middle class majority population suddenly become very politically active and demanding of their officials.

    The hard part would be making taxpayers realize that those cherished refunds have been their money all along, and the whole thing is a joint government/consumer goods scam to get them to buy things that they could have simply saved for… or in most cases, saved for something more worthwhile.

    A racist is someone who discriminates against another person based on their skin color. For instance, judging someone’s innocence or guilt based not on their innocence or guilt but rather on their skin color is racist. Racism is false judgment and it’s de-humanizing.

    America outlawed dictatorship at our founding, outlawed slavery, outlawed segregation, and outlawed unequal rights based on race. That is what our ancestors fought and died for. They didn’t fight and die so that one day their white descendants would be discriminated against based on their race or made to pay blacks money, blacks who have never been slaves paid money by whites who have never owned slaves and whose ancestors fought to end slavery. These things are fundamental. “White privilege” ideology and critical race theory which holds that America is a white supremacist country are false ideologies and a perversion of our history.

    “White privilege” ideology is not only racist and de-humanizing towards white people, accusing every white person of being a racist, an oppressor, and a supremacist, but it’s also racist and de-humaning towards black people, accusing every black person of being a victim of white people and of being oppressed by white people, it accuses black people of being unable to be racist, as if the black race is so inferior that it is impossible for them to be racists towards white people, and accusing every black person of not being responsible for their own deeds in life but rather white people are responsible for their deeds in life, as if white people are their masters, and some of them will even go so far as to say that a black criminal is a victim while the white victim is the oppressor. White privilege ideology firmly affixes black people into an inferior position to white people.

    The anti-white and anti-black ideologues want racial preferences in all things for black people, which is an admission that given equal rights blacks collectively as a race underperform against white people; their reasoning: white people are racists; the truth: culture matters, families matter, letting people be themselves matter even if that means that they underperform; quit talking about race, generalizing about race is racist and vile, if we want to help people succeed then let’s help all people succeed.

    The military has no problem winning wars against pipsqueak militaries, they have a big problem trying to police populations that don’t want to be ruled over by the US military’s masters. The military knows this, or should know it, and those that do know it know that the military, the military industrial complex, and corrupt politicians and their cronies benefit from long drawn out policing operations overseas, the only loser is the American soldier, the American people, and the American treasury.

    They never have and never will. The US is protected by two oceans and so has been protected from invasion unlike most other countries. All American wars have been wars of choice and opportunity, going overseas to pile on somewhere. Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan were all poor, underdeveloped countries that the US felt it could handle. This ‘support our troops’ BS line has reached its expiration date. People who sign up and are willing to go thousands of miles to terrorize the impoverished, primitive people of Afghanistan in their own country are just guns for hire with no morality and deserve anything that they get. Trannies get blown away, nobody cares. The military budget has always been a massive scheme of fraud and theft, moving money upwards from the mass of taxpayers into the accounts of the connected. The permanent war and theft state thinks it has tapped into a new source of deluded cannon fodder. They’re just chumps being lured to do the dirty work of a rogue state.

    The cultural-Marxist rhetoric at the Pentagon is obviously inconsistent with the mind set necessary to prevail in combat. The battlefield is the antithesis of a safe space and is where those driven by sensitivity typically die dead.

    The brass at the Pentagon act as though they will never again have to confront a real enemy in any type of traditional battle. Maybe they really believe that it is just cyber and information warfare going forward mixed in with occasional kinetic engagements by special forces. So who cares if the masturbator at the video console is wearing panties and a butt-plug as long as he-she is willing to follow orders and murder others, even he-she’s own fellow citizens, remotely via a drone.

    This notion and having to adapt to changing demographics to meet recruitment quotas would appear to be the most prosaic explanation for the bizarre cultural-Marxist dysphoria being manifested at the Pentagon.

    It remains to be seen what effect in general this rhetoric will have on the morale, spirit and fighting effectiveness of the US military as whole and especially among real combat troops.

    Americans haven’t suffered an invasion for ~200 years – War of 1812. The American Civil War was ~160 years ago.

    In that same time both the Russians and Chinese have suffered so many wars, invasions, revolutions and various civil disturbances that it’s easy to lose count. Take that back 1000 years or so, and you do lose count.

    The fact that you’re on everybody’s favourite invasion route colours you worldview about a lot of things, including things military. And it makes your national culture a bit paranoid, baked in with the repeated and unceasing experiences of mass violence.

    It’s something that Americans have a hard time understanding. As James Dunnigan, author of How to Make War et al, sums it up nicely: “No American has ever heard of Atilla the Eskimo.”

    If the rah-rah boosters of goading either Russia or China ever get their wish and the balloon goes up, the present fractured nature of American Society will truly make it’s weaknesses apparent. And that includes the failings of a military that’s more for show and bullying smaller countries that actual, sustained war fighting.

We start the problems and then use those problems to justify forever increasing defense budgets. We don’t need American warships in the Taiwan Straight. We don’t need Ukraine as an ally. China really isn’t the huge military threat they are made out to be, are they? What has North Korea ever done to receive all of these nuclear threats? Who has China invaded since 1950? Or Russia?

    America’s military strength is found in its diversity.

    What a laugh, right? Years ago I thought the military might step in to save America when an old gent and retired chairman of a corporation said to me, “That’s the last thing we need. The Pentagon is the mother of all bureaucracies.” People are still fooled by the uniform and mistake Democratic hacks like Milley for soldiers. The bureaucrats euphemistically referred to as the “brass” or “flag officers” are little different from their counterparts in the DOJ or FBI. They don’t give a damn about “America,” and even less about the lives of white American boys still useful to do the real fighting in the ME so good Jewish boys need not be bothered.

    As far as diversity goes, it’s gone from damaging to crippling. The Pentagon is trying to pass off the evil brew it’s created as the new tonic creating superhero, Mission-critical “war fighters” despite their sexuality revolving around coprophilia and coprophagia. The Pentagon has badly miscalculated that recruiting sexual degenerates and disaffected, white-hating POCs, giving these groups unmerited preferment and promotion over more qualified whites, would serve the Pentagon well when it was ordered by the Democrats to open fire on Americans.

    Fifty year ago in Vietnam basecamps, where the blacks were concentrated in supply and support, the uniforms and equipment desperately needed by whites doing the fighting in the field were sold by the blacks to the day workers and then to the Vietcong or NVA. In the field, indolent and surly blacks were every units greatest liability. Yet we’re supposed to believe morale is improved by adding mentally sick trannies whose rainbow emblem conceals the reality that they eat one another’s feces and call it love.

    The irony is that blacks are the white-hating racists in the ranks and trannies and homos the most intolerant of them all. This doesn’t end well, unless your a Merrick Garland tasked by Blackrock and the Jews who own Silicon Valley and the public forum, et al., with the final annihilation of white America.

    Your statement:
    /A racist is someone who discriminates against another person based on their skin color. For instance, judging someone’s innocence or guilt based not on their innocence or guilt but rather on their skin color is racist. Racism is false judgment and it’s de-humanizing.”/……goes against basic human nature.
    The term “racism” came out of the Frankfurt school and is being used to destabilize white-run (non-jewish) societies.
    It is natural for the different races to be wary of each other. THAT is basic human nature.
    The whole “racism” and “civil-rights (for some)” push actually does a disservice to humanity as forced multi-racial associations and the abolition of “freedom of association” (but only for the dominant (white) majority) always has negative consequences.
    Blacks were actually better off when they had their own institutions, businesses, etc. All that came to an end when the (forced) “civil-rights (for some)” laws and statutes went into effect. Blacks lost more than they gained.
    Rather than being the “masters of their own destiny” they were now a part of a much larger, not so friendly system.

    When a military officer gains the rank of general, he is more akin to a CEO, politician or a member of the board of directors of a corporation than that of a professional military officer.
    The rank of colonel is the final rank of a true military man.
    A prime example of this was General Dwight Eisenhower. He was not an effective military man, but was a “paper-pusher” who was responsible for the German military “holocaust”, the Rheinwiesenlager “death camps” where ordinary German soldiers were interned after the war. These were true “death camps”, unlike the “work camps” that were falsely defined as “death camps” by the propagandist jewish “holocaust™” promoters.
    Eisenhower would not comply with Geneva Convention protocols on the treatment of “prisoners of war” (something the Germans complied with meticulously), instead redefining the surrendering German soldiers as “disarmed enemy combatants”, thus offering no form of international protection or normal human decency.
    These “disarmed enemy combatants” were held in open-air camps with no food and water. Anyone who attempted to feed these soldiers was summarily shot.
    Eisenhower should have been brought up on war crimes charges, but instead became president of the united States of America.
    This is a prime example of the motivations of flag officers (generals).

    Cheran has open elections, where you have to line up – and be physically seen to vote for your candidate. The candidates are selected by campfires, where non-psychopaths are selected, and vouched for by campfire leaders. Campfire leaders have to say things like, “this is a good man” and we vouch for his character.

    If you are selected by the campfire leaders.. you have to accept. In other words, the people who become part of the governing hierarchy are dragnetted by the campfire leaders, it is not voluntary. People who are dragnetted usually don’t want the job. Oftentimes they are paid less, and have to lower their standard of living to serve.

    People who are drawn to power should not be in power. Campfire leaders are regular citizens, and they debate out in the open, around a campfire.

    I was a grunt at the engineers camp outside Pleiku for a time in 1969. You’re right. Going outside the gate became the stuff of war stories for basecamp commandos while grunts who were more or less permanently outside the gate still get lectured to fifty years later about what it was “really like” serving in “Nam.” You know the drill. They “can’t talk about it,” not because they saw a day’s action or were in one firefight, but because in most cases they’d have nothing to talk about except the basecamp clubs, shows, and paperwork. One former friend had the gall to tell me to my face that his experience in some Army joke called Jungle Expert School in Central America was “more real” than being in the field for a year in Vietnam. Several Vietnam basecamp commandos I also went to high school with have pulled the same thing, talking the talk without ever having walked the walk.

    Gordon Duff at Veterans Today wrote a piece some years ago about what it’s like having served in a front line combat unit, Army or Marines, only to get lectured to by basecamp commandos who use the basecamp lingo like “dee dee” and “boucoup,” which they picked up, not in the field, but watching TV over there. He said it was almost enough to make him question his sanity and whether it was those basecamp commandos spewing grunt lingo who were in the field and he was never there at all. Can’t talk about it, right? The real action was inside the basecamps, right? not taking automatic weapons fire on combat assaults into hostile LZ’s and being told you have to jump since the slick wasn’t setting down. Tell us phonies who were in the field with line companies what it was really like. Everyone else does.

    Your post is good but I disagree with the opportunity part. The blacks in the US are not denied opportunity. They have been given much more opportunity than the average white or asian. They live the life they choose. Their choice is influenced a lot by doing what is easy ie. accepting welfare. They are not denied the choice to work hard but they choose not to. I grew up with affirmative action denying me jobs etc. I still did OK and took care of myself and family without government assistance. The blacks always had more choices in employment and education than I had. They chose to be what they are today.

  80. Though I always enjoy Phil’s articles, he is an Intelligence Officer and not a Military Historian or Scientist.

    He is quite right in describing the rather infantile actions by the Democrats in terms of some of their policies and endeavors. However, tactically speaking, Americans should welcome a Democratic majority that can no longer be defeated by Republicans.

    Seriously, would most Americans really want to see power taken by a lunatic fringe of totalitarian thinking fools as we now see in the Republican Party? I think not!

    Now, don’t get me wrong, the Democrats are hardly angels and will only marginally make things better for the US. However, where Republicans are highly focused and cohesive, Democrats today are highly fractious with a large amount of internecine political warfare in their ranks. Even the groups that are fighting with each other are also fighting with themselves.

    This fractiousness on the Democrats’ part is an advantage for the creation of third parties and providing increased incentives for those that exist.

    The two-party system we have today is not what The Founders envisioned since they had no use for party politics. A multiple party system would be more in line with their thinking, though in reality The Founders expected political interaction to be more of an individual thing than anything having to do with political group formations.

    If the US does not modernize its political infrastructure to a far more inclusive one for people of all political thought, then in a word, we are done.

    Despite the dislike by many for the Democrats (and there are many things I don’t like about them either – ie: woke ideology), they are too fractious an entity to be able to thwart determined efforts to push them aside.

    Right now we need the Democrats in power so the populace can take advantage of their weaknesses.

    When you have 75,000,000 people voting for a complete degenerate, does anyone really want the party that supports this person in power?

    Manning received hormone therapy treatment while in the prison but surgery took place only after he was released in 2017. The military did not at that time accept anyone describable as transgender. Manning was a deeply disturbed individual who should never have gotten a security clearance or even been allowed to stay in the army. When he was arrested he was a private first class, an impossibly low rank for someone who had been in the service as long as he had been. He was a low level intelligence analyst who several times had his access to classified material suspended due to bizarre behavior. Intelligence officer does not necessarily mean officer or anything like that. Manning did a good thing in exposing some of the crimes being committed by the US in Iraq but he did it to get even with his colleagues in the service rather than to perform as a whistleblower and he was a very strange dude…

    I agree with most of your assessment of Manning, however you missed the most important aspect of the whole affair. Manning had little if any idea of the material he was releasing. As you say, he did it as an act of revenge. 99.99% of the military data he exposed had no value to anyone really. It was mostly logistics data, only interesting to those who would do the military harm, and of no interest to anyone like yourself. The Embassy cables, while there is a few tidbits that someone like you could piece together some useful evidence of State Dept wrongdoing, were also mostly useless. The harm of releasing the Embassy cables were that they wound up in public unredacted with literally tens of thousands of names of ordinary people whose only crime was chatting with Embassy types: Reporters in Afghanistan and Iraq. Medical NGOs in Pakistan. Priests in China and Syria. Government officials in Africa. Mostly just idle chatter, but incredibly dangerous to innocent people to have their private conversations to US Embassy officials publicly available in a searchable database. Assange and the CIA both said “nobody was harmed”, but do they really know? Would they admit people suffered from the release and prove their liability? Methinks not. So Manning should be swinging from the highest lampost in my book. How do I know what I say is valid? Because I spent some time going through the Embassy cables to see for myself and make my own assessment. I was shocked at all the names of the innocent.

    The US is the final stages of a nation failing. Its armed forces can’t win against anyone outside the nation anymore, not even DT’s declaration that Murica was back and the army would be rebuilt into the best of the best could change the fact that America was losing on all fronts.

    And the political leadership behind the army from top to bottom only cares about grabbing as big a piece of the action as they can before the whole things collapses.

    Most of the world, even its more faithful allies are seeing the US as an emperor without clothes, a penniless charlatan hellbent on presenting themselves as the king of the world. The only thing more depressing is the notion that the UK government is so utterly useless and corrupt that the only way they could think to divert peoples attention away from their latest clusterf*ck was by almost starting a war with Russia over a piece of dirt poor land on someone else behalf.

    Does Geraldi mention WHO is behind much of this propaganda. Below are some of the names behind this nonsense.
    Below, you’ll find a portion of a Counter Currents article:

    It came to my attention that this commercial was not a result of white ethnomasochism, but perhaps something far more disquieting. HLG Studios out of Los Angeles was behind the production of the three commercials. HLG has worked on advertising campaigns for a myriad of national brands, from fast food chains, to banks, technology companies, and clothing retailers. HLG Studios was founded by Yuri Baranovsky, the same man who directed Netflix’s race-mixing, anti-white propaganda pieces. Baranovsky is Jewish.[20]

    This revelation piqued my interest and sent me down a bit of a rabbit hole in the advertising industry. I quickly found that the marketing industry is very much akin to the media industry. Just four mega-corporations control the vast majority of all advertising agencies. The Omnicom Group of New York, WPP of London, Publicis of Paris, and Interpublic of New York are the key corporations in the West. Dentsu of Tokyo is the next largest group, and fifth globally.

    The New York Times states that these companies are so powerful “they can indirectly set network television schedules and starve magazines to death or help them to flourish,” by deciding how and when to spend advertising dollars.[21] Each company owns dozens if not hundreds of smaller agencies; Omnicom has bought over 150 firms alone.

    By chance, does Mr. Giraldi point out WHO has been spearheading this blatant propaganda that “Counter Currents” covers? We’re inserting part of that article revealing WHO is the dominant group of people, aside from the Japanese website who is spewing out this nonsense? As you’ll note below, a good deal of these folks are……Jews. Does Giraldi mention them????

    “CEO John Wren, of Irish descent, currently heads Omnicom Group. Omnicon was founded by Allen Rosenshine, Keith Reinhard, and John Bernbach, all three Jewish.[22]

    Long-standing CEO of Publicis (1987–2017) has been Maurice Lévy, who cited his Rabbi grandfather as his greatest inspiration.[23] Lévy has been honored by the Anti-Defamation League, for his work fighting anti-Semitism, and his relentless promotion of “diversity”.[24]

    WPP of London was founded and is currently run by Martin Sorrell, of Jewish descent.[25]

    Chairman and CEO of the Interpublic Group (IPG), is Michael Isor Roth. I found no mention of his ethnicity. Roth did however condemn the “white supremacist ideology” at Charlottesville and founded the whole event to be “deeply disturbing,” as he wrote in an internal memo to 50,000 IPG employees. Roth further wrote that the actions cannot be tolerated, and that of course “diversity” is an American value. Finally, he suggested the events at Charlottesville are not political issues, but “an issue of basic humanity, and standing up for what is right.”[26] I agree with the sentiments of Roth. ”

    who as a people and its individuals, an ethnic group, apart from white… have ever had ‘affirmative social action in the USA?

    that’s right. no others!

    Ethic groups worked out their own affirmative action, even Blacks under the most massive pressure from whites did so. You forget everyday racism/police action, in the USA and how awful that reality was, still is. I don’t understand how so many here, white men of age as well, who lived through a lot of what I list, mitigate eagerly what was an awful reality!!!

    You appear to be missing completely what Giraldi is actually saying. Black people are not the ones deciding to and imposing Black ‘dumb’ systematically on America. It is current American authority who is saying ‘well ok! Black people do not want to do English because that is not what they talk or whatever. so we wont teach English!’ It is American authority deciding to that according to Giraldi.

    What do Black people actually want relatively? Who asked Black Americans what they wanted relative to educational organization and content in the USA?

    Who surveyed Black America as they should have on the subject and made the results available to the public? we don’t actually know what’s gong on. We have Mr. Giraldi’s argument but we do not know the factual, investigated basis of it. where did he get the valid solid information that backs up all he claims here?

    [MORE]

    I would like to see an investigation of a cross section of Black American public opinion on American education, verified Black opinion, that establishes beyond doubt that Black Americans do not want to do proper English in school as is normal, for that is the language we speak?

    Same way with math and the other routine subjects of basic education

    I want to see such a proper and valid investigation of Black opinion the corroborates Mr. Giraldi and with which American educational authority agrees with such Black opinion, and decides to comply with such Black opinion and wont teach good English, solid basic math etc., anymore?

    What Giraldi is talking about is the imposition on America of what is the result of the absolute dumbing down from generations of attack on Black people by the status quo… a decision made not by black people but by American authority such as it is currently constituted.

    And it is not that America did not give Black people opportunity that resulted in their current poorly state in the USA. Maybe we can argue that the nation does not have to give anyone anything they must make for themselves. But that is the point! Not that America did not give…but that America took that away from Black America…the freedom to go make it themselves, by racism, police, action, lockdown, pogrom etc.

    Many Black Americans made it despite that! fought all the way and made lives for themselves. many did it so striking ways that their names have gone down in history. But the majority have had to deal with such locked down life period and are the product of it currently. and it is still I am sure not the case that they cannot see the way out is a good education, a real education.

    Black America I am absolutely confident do see in fact that good education is one of the certain ways forward and out of the inter-general morass they are in. But the question that arises powerfully in this mix is does American authority want to educate properly any Americans at all at this state in the existences of America, far less Black people

    We can infer this question from what appears to be, in the absence of verifiable Black opinion on the issue of their education that an attempt is being made to impose on American systematically the old dumbed down education of Black people, that has produced lots of black people we see currently who are not at all what they should be, and can only attribute lack of education or poor education as main factor of cause

  117. Consider the silver lining to all this.

    We often complain the US is an Evil Empire engaged in crazy wars for Israel.

    Well, anything that weakens the US military is good. So, if all this ‘wokery’ is ruining America’s military, it’s a good thing for the world. I say all white patriots should quit and let stupid blacks, women, and trannies do all the future fighting.

    But me thinks that, in some way, these token ‘wokeries’ might make Judeo-US imperialism more feasible. After all, what matters MOST to the US elites is the support of the upper middle classes. What do the upper middle classes worship most these days? BLM and globo-homo.

    So, by associating the military with BLM and tutti-fruity, the elites can make the military and US overseas ventures far more palatable to the upper middle class. “Yay, we support more wars because bombs are painted with ‘gay’ colors and BLM symbols.”

    Imperialists of yesteryear made aggression abroad more palatable by associating it with Christian mission to save souls around the world. Today, neo-imperialists win over the upper middle classes by impressing upon them that the military and new imperialism are all about BLM and globo-homo. That way, in the name of BLACK LIVES MATTER, millions of Muslim and Arab lives can be taken to the gleeful delight of hideous Zionists.

    The KMT was just controlled opposition to Bolshevism.

Jews supporting the KMT is not evidence that they were not behind Communism in China. Chiang, I believe, was a willing agent of the Chinese Communists who intentionally lost the civil war.

    We expectations of their priorities, which are to the United States of America and all Americans.
    Ideally.

    Unfortunately, gender-confused people are mainly involved with themselves and navel-gazing. Not with contemplating their duty to their country and their fellow soldiers. Most likelyl many of them are in the military to make some kind of ideological “statement” and also to get the free medical reversal or whatever it is called.

    Whether these are women who want to be men or men who want to be women, none of these people belong anywhere near the armed forces—maybe behind a desk somewhere, if they have the requisite skills. The idea of joining up with the military as one thing and then demanding to be changed over to another is ludicrous as well as abhorrent, plus basically dishonest.

    Plus, who stands in for them while they are on medical disability? What if the operations and treatments fail, and then the military has to take care of these messes for the rest of their lives. Or, what if, like so many trannies, they decide they want to go back to what they were born with. Does the taxpayers pony up for another operation?

    The US economy is 70% consumer spending.

    What is the meaning of the above statement? That the US earns 30% and spends 70%? Or Spending constitutes 70% of the US GDP? If so, then it cannot be sustained.No country can only keep on spending forever. It has to earn too. If this spending is in the international markets – that is, importing goods, which I suspect to be the case – then the US economy must earn an equivalent value through exporting goods and services from the US, or else some day creditors will be knocking on the doors of the country to collect their dues. It may so happen that the credit notes the creditors are holding may be worthless due to inflation (that seems to be the idea of the US ruling class, to inflate away the debts), but then the creditors may refuse to sell anything to a population that knows only how to spend.

  125. “acknowledge all lived experiences and intersectional identities”

    I have no idea what that means, but with the Amerikastani military tradition of calling invasions of defenceless nations “freedom”, Russia defending its borders “aggression”, resistance fighters to imperial occupation “terrorists”, etc etc, there isn’t anything new about this kind of language.

    I can’t say anything from personal knowledge about whether standards in Amerikastan are being deliberately dumbed down (though I am all for it because anything that weakens Amerikastan is good), but I can tell you about the total and absolute disaster that the reservation policy has been in India. When first imposed it was supposed to be for ten years, to lift historically neglected and discriminated against lower castes out of poverty*. Over 70 years later, not only has not a single caste (or tribe) gone off the reservation list (which they surely should have if the policy worked), just about every year more castes are added to the reservation quotas and the amount of reservation sometime approaches 100%. At the same time the only people to benefit are a super rich minority ftom the reserved castes and tribes, while the majority are if anything worse off economically and socially than before. Incidentally, that super rich layer always makes sure to send their spawn to educational institutions where the teachers are not from the reserved category, and when they fall sick they always go to doctors who are not from the reserved category. As a medical professional myself I see this almost every day.

    * Ironically the Indian constitution prohibits discrimination on the basis of castes, yet every regime, including that of the gibbering globetrotting genocidal Gujarati gangster Narendrabhai Damodardasbhai Modi, invariably supports and expands reservation. Apparently discrimination is fine as long as it’s only against those who depend only on their brains and abilities and not the accident of their caste of birth.

  129. We should be cheering on politicians who want to make the US military more diverse, woke and feminine, because a less effective US military means the US is less of a threat to the world. Eventually, the military will be filled with the ranks of the unintelligent, the criminal and the degenerate freak element so that it won’t be able to provide personnel to man it’s bases around the world. Millions dream of the day, that the US closes down it’s bases all over the world and takes its degenerate and freakish culture back with it to the contiguous US states.

    We don’t need a 3rd party. We need to get rid of the two that exist. It is the party system that has a stranglehold on all of politics and their infighting leads to pandering to interest groups for votes to sustain their advantage.

    There’s no attempt made to consider the totality of the country’s population. Each party caters to segments they think will win an election and don’t care what harm that does to the country’s other constituents.

    It’s the party SYSTEM that needs to disappear and there’s an easy way to replace them with the technology available today. There’s just no will or anyone of prominence calling for a build back better of the entire election system.

    Everyone deserves to be left alone, to be ignored, to walk a path through life of their choosing as long as it doesn’t interfere with anyone else. Respect is earned in all cases; no one deserves to get it for just existing.

    When you walk past a person on the street, you are ignoring them, not respecting them. All anyone should want from people they don’t know is to be ignored on their journey through life.

    I consider the LGBTQWXYZ people to be mental cases. I want nothing to do with them because I can’t predict their reaction to situations given their warped sense of reality and now, due to their prominence, their entitled attitude. I’m perfectly fine with ignoring them as they go through life, but now I can’t because they push their mental illness in my face and have special laws written to create a social environment where my thoughts on their aberrant condition is deemed to be anti social.

    Where before I ignored them and had a live and let live attitude toward them, now I detest them for trying to force their insanity on to the entire society. As an employer, where before I might have hired them, now I definitely won’t. They have declared themselves my enemy and I will treat them that way.

    It is the constant resistance to voters in the last 50 or so years that has EXPOSED the criminal mafia and so served a very useful purpose. Chodorov was actually a communist at heart. At best an anarchist. Most of the so called libertarians today, have no problem with an open border to the U.S. and put money over culture. You can not get rid of high places.

    Under the right circumstances, I’d be for open borders to allow people to decide how the world works instead of politicians. Right now, the border situation is a mess and I’d throw all illegals out, no exception, but that’s because of the current political environment that has a welcome mat out for every dirtbag that wants to wander in.

    As long as the US hangs out the welcome mat, people would be stupid not to accept the invitation considering what they are leaving behind. The free stuff magnet is a powerful draw.

    Most people never realize that they live in an open air prison. Try leaving the US without a passport. Try entering another country without one. Yes, certain borders are purposely porous for legal short visits, but try flying from one country to another without the proper paperwork.

    I’m opposed to the concept of a passport because I’m opposed to being imprisoned without charges and having to ask permission from a bureaucracy. Open borders is what the US has de facto, but won’t admit it and won’t give it to their own citizens, preferring to bestow that privilege on to those that flaunt the laws.

    The principle measure of the State of our economy is the GDP. The rich spend very little of their money on living expenses. The poor spend all of it and yet never get ahead (save). The GDP is 70% consumer spending, that is everyone rich, middle class and poor. Consumer spending is the total money spent on final goods and services by individuals and households for personal use and enjoyment in an economy. The remaining 30% is profits from stock, bonds, capital investment and health care. When you attack wages by union busting, offshoring of plants and jobs, you reduce consumer spending. This has been offset by Corporate, stock market and real estate profits, but much of this has nothing to do with productivity (real wealth creation). It is money which is transferred between citizens, as rent and profits from imaginary paper shuffling on Wall Street, Real Estate and Insurance and health care. This work is fundamentally different than growing crops in farming, extracting minerals and oil from the ground, and manufacturing new products which enhances the value of raw materials. The difference is between creating something which did not previously exist (new wealth) and (existing) wealth transfer between citizens. The first textbook on economics was titled “The Wealth of Nations” for that reason. Today our economy is dominated by paper shuffling and necessary health care profits.

    The IRS had long distinguished between earned and unearned income. But, powerful Libertarians like Milton Friedman and Alan Greenspan like lumping them together for purposes of calculating the GDP and the rich have been engaged in lobbying to lower the tax on unearned income and raising taxes on earned income for forty years, with great success.

    Abraham Lincoln put it this way: “Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.”

    So the rich have upended our economy to promote their narrow interests. As a result China is now accumulating wealth at an astonishing rate, as Japan has also done in the past. The US by contrast is now accumulating debt. I do not mean to suggest that is always bad, since government debt equals private savings. But the growing private debt will drag down the economy, because 70% is consumer spending. No one dominated production more than the USA during WWII, which is a main reason for our victory. But those days are gone. Being primarily a service economy, as our leaders have been planning for decades, can only reduce the virtuous cycle of production and consumption.

    Now do you get it?

    When will you pagan godless morons comprehend that all ingredients for the destruction of Christianity, with all its irreconcilable contradictions, is built into the accursed faith itself. It has nothing to do with the judenscum, or their control over your pagan societies.

    There are other faiths in the same boat as your pagan godless faith, such as Hindooism. One advantage in favour of Hindooism is that its adherents are primitive savages, at least in the spiritual realm. No amount of blatant spiritual idiocy will weaken their faith. They will revel in consuming animal faeces and urine if told to do so.

    But, I have to hand it to the whitevil race, for they are certainly smarter than the dindoos, but that said, in matter of spirituality, not by much. Perhaps their supposedly higher IQs will lead them out of their pagan hallucinations… whether into a better path, remains to be seen.

    The older I get, the more clearly I’m able to see past the misuse of American symbols and music by evil plutocrats who turned it into a weapon against European civilization in two World Wars. I’m also able to see past the misuse of American patriotism in the many wars since, which have only served Israel and Big Business.

    America, according to Joe Biden, is a country not based on an ethnicity or a geography.

    For me, America is blood and soil—-this vast North American continent + 200 million White Europeans.

    It’s more than that, but that’s mostly what it is. When people celebrate Independence Day, that’s what they’re celebrating—-consciously or unconsciously. They aren’t celebrating classical liberalism, capitalism or liberal democracy.

    This is manifestly true, because what would Independence Day be without this North American land, or without men and women of European blood? It would have no meaning.

    The impulse to celebrate Independence Day is a good and healthy impulse. The American flag symbolizes the union of 50 states and the 13 original colonies. The colors red, white and blue signify our British origins, which is also why we all speak English. Any meaning beyond that is the meaning you put into it.

    To me, the flag is something to be fought for, something to wrest out of the hands of Jews and traitors. Our national flag is not something I want to change or abolish, rather it’s something I want to take back.

    I want to retake possession of the flag in the name of my ancestors and my children, as one would retake a stolen territory lost to an enemy power. I want to return it to honor and glory, to wash away the stain of a century of occupation by enemies of this nationality, and raise the flag to new heights. I’m not willing to cede to them either my national flag, or the blood and soil it represents. 🇺🇸

    The Japanese constructions you show are not so traditional but very recent : moreover they are palaces, not urban scenes. Japanese non-palatial urban architecture prior to 1900 was indistinguishable from that of Philippine shantytowns. Same thing for Germany : prior to Bismarck most German streets in middle-sized towns were pig pens literally and the same word was used to denote urban open spaces and farm barnyards : höfe. These German houses remind me of the English thatched cottages which are actually beautified imitations of former thatch, straw and mud buildings that very little distinguished from those of darkest Congo. The traditional rural architecture of Cameroon (Bamileke) is absolutely indistinguishable from that of Britany in France. Rural France in general prior to Napoleon’s defeat in Waterloo (after which only peasants had less children and started buying goods beyond day to day survival) was technically as lowly as most of Africa : only the aristocrats and the bourgeois enjoyed more perfected construction. On the other hand the traditional African towns of Mali while not very elaborate from an engineer’s point of view used to have very geometrical plans and artfully coloured walls and courtyards with quasi-tuscan columns. IQ does not always translate in realizations, and on the other hand only one IQ above 115 over 1000 is sufficient for an organized city to be cleanly designed. Another important fact : Africans brought into urban environments having nothing to do with their own handiwork tend to grow the most really stupid (65), modern Ivory Coast being renowned as such among the Africans themselves. Those who live in their own huts, especially when these huts are also sorts of symbolic, like sculptures, like the Dogon, are perfectly capable of philosophical discussions and of resolving the same kind of geometrical problems you could show to Northerners or Orientals. Europeans don’t owe the order of their modern cities to their IQ but to their ability to obey unquestioningly programs they don’t understand. And we know that these Europeans were never programmed by other like Europeans but by other people more expert at mind programming than at computer programming.
