“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

Monday morning Mando manhandling

Monday. WTFH. Where DID that weekend go?!?

Oh yeah, I remember now – I was doing squats and deadlifts yesterday and evidently the overpressure in my face from struggling to get out of the hole did bad things to my memory. (I used to be able to squat 315lbs WITHOUT a belt, with excellent form. Five years and numerous back injuries later, and I struggle to squat 275lbs WITH a belt. Say it with me now, boys: GETTING OLD SUCKS.)

(Fortunately I can still deadlift 405lbs and bench 225lbs without issues, so, y’know, ups and downs.)

I suppose that’s a better way to spend your weekend than, oh, say, at the bottom of a bottle, but given all of the insanity going on right now, the bottle is at least a sort of legitimate way of dealing with things, if not a healthy or sensible one.

But that’s all in the past, because your most effective pick-me-up is here for you, in the form of the Great Mondaydact Browser Buster. If you aren’t feeling at least somewhat better after scrolling through all of this crap, the problem is likely with you – or, more accurately, whatever you’re drinking.

Let’s get started with some hopefully good sci-fi.

The big complaint from old-school STAR WARS fans is that LucasFilm under Kathleen Kennedy has no idea how to create actual STAR WARS films and TV shows anymore. But, it looks like Jon Favreau and Kevin Feige have figured out how to crack that particular nut with The Mandalorian – and the trailer for the second season looks like it’s MARINATED in old-school STAR WARS lore:

Obviously there is a hell of a lot of “fanservice” going on, of a certain kind. (If the term mystifies you, just play the latest Dead or Alive video game. Or watch an anime series called Rosario + Vampire.) But the first season of The Mandalorian showed clearly that the producers and directors behind that show actually respect the core material and the fans, and they have a real desire to push the brand forward without too much social justice messaging bullshit.

Time will tell whether the new season is any good. So far, at least, it looks promising.

His Most Illustrious, Noble, August, Benevolent, and Legendary Celestial Majesty, the God-Emperor of Mankind, Donaldus Triumphus Magnus Astra, the First of His Name, the Lion of Midnight, may the Lord bless him and preserve him, took a great shot at a lying whorenalist scumbag who goes by the name of Ali Velshi and works for MSHIV:

My sides!!!

Oh, but it gets better. Obviously the guy who put that video together is horrified by the God-Emperor’s comments, but look at the responses from viewers. Donaldus Triumphus clearly hit a chord with people who are absolutely fed to the back teeth with the (((media))) lies.

Truly, no one outtrolls the Troll Emperor. Donald Trump is a force of nature – a human wrecking-ball aimed squarely at the Establishment and the never-to-be-sufficiently-cursed lying whorenalists of the (((media))).

Truly, my friends, the God-Emperor is capable of anything. All he has to do now is announce that he is totally against cannibalism, and the Daemoncrats will literally devour themselves in protest. I mean, seriously, why hasn’t he done it yet?!? It would solve so many problems in such a big hurry!

Your “Science is F***ING WEIRD” moment of the week

As Jupiter approaches Earth, the Hubble Space Telescope was able to snap new high-resolution photos of the solar system’s largest planet, revealing a brand new storm in its northern latitudes and a spinoff of the Great Red Spot.

Released on Thursday by NASA, the newest images from Hubble show Jupiter and its icy moon Europa on August 25, when the planet was 656 million kilometers (406 million miles) from Earth. The photo reveals a new feature in the gas giant’s hydrogen-helium atmosphere, a bright white storm stretching out across the mid-northern latitudes.

The new storm appeared on August 18, NASA said. It is moving at approximately 560kph (350mph). Two more storms were later detected along the same latitude by ground-based telescopes.

The most notable feature of Jupiter’s atmosphere, the mega-storm dubbed the Great Red Spot, continues to shrink in size – as it has done since the 1930s – for reasons that remain unexplained. It is still larger than the entire Earth, at over 15,000 kilometers (9,800 miles) across.

Just below the Great Red Spot is the feature known as Oval BA, which NASA astronomers had dubbed ‘Red Spot Junior’, as it appeared red in 2006. It has since faded to white, but new photos show its core darkening and possibly returning to a more reddish hue.

Your long read of the week is from Gregory Hood, and explains the need for a new Right-wing worldview that puts the Truth front-and-centre and discards with the useless shibboleths of classical liberalism and cuckservatism:

We can’t rely on the Constitution to save us. It has already failed to prevent a massive federal bureaucracy and unelected judges from imposing policy. For example, today California is a deep blue state. However, Californians voted against mass immigration when they passed Proposition 187 in 1994A court threw it out. On the most important issue, the people’s will didn’t matter. Now it’s too late to save the Golden State. Falling back on legalism is the sign of a failing movement. The side in politics that is more concerned with “means” than “ends” is the side that’s losing.

Classical liberalism is hardly more compelling than appealing to a long-dead Constitution. Joe Sobran joked that when someone proclaims new “human rights,” no one exclaims, “Oh good, I’m getting more rights!” “Human rights” are the justification for government intervention in our lives, especially to protect “marginalized groups.” That leaves the individual at the mercy of organized groups with a collective identity and a claim to victimhood.

Under “disparate impact” legal doctrine, practically any policy can become a potential civil rights violation if it leads to racial discrepancies. The races don’t perform equally in all fields, so discrepancies are inevitable. If you assume inherent racial equality, you must fall back on Critical Race Theory and white privilege to explain non-white failure. Indeed, the federal government teaches Critical Race Theory under the “nationalist” Trump Administration. The administration isn’t funding American Renaissance, but it paid Robin DiAngelo thousands.

We may even need to revisit the Founders’ assumptions. The philosophical underpinnings of classical liberalism are false. Man is not a blank slate; our genetic makeup helps shape our personalityvaluesand even political attitudes. Racial differences in intelligence are so undeniable that the most famous opponent of race realism, Stephen Jay Gould, resorted to fraud. Most people do not make rational judgments. Instead, they interpret information to support their biases. Control over information, which is in Big Tech’s hands, means the power to shift public opinion. It undercuts the whole concept of self-government.

This next joke may take a moment to understand if you’re not “up” on Jewish customs:

The usual custom is an apple dipped in honey – now do you get it?

Actually, it’s not quite that bad. If you want to hear something TRULY terrifying, try listening to Bengali women at an Indian wedding doing their war-cries. It’s genuinely unsettling – as is the blowing of the conch shell, which alternately sounds like a war horn or a dyspeptic fat kid farting.

Bit violent, these Jews, eh, what?

Apparently this will be the year 5,781 by their calendar. That has some fascinating scientific implications, by the way, which I might get around to talking about one day in a podcast. We’ll see how it goes.

Onward:

I’m pretty sure that shoving a Hellfire missile up Qassem al-Soleimani’s arse put him right over that line. I’m not complaining – not exactly, though I think killing Soleimani wasn’t strictly necessary or wise – but in this ONE aspect, President Lightworker Odumbass has the God-Emperor beat all hollow.

Do Daemoncrats ever get whiplash from the speed at which they have to change their opinions thanks to the God-Emperor?

What did I JUST say?!?

And now to round things off nicely (heh), here is your Instathot to get the week off to a good start. Her name is Jenna Alexa Berman, age 24 from Jupiter, FL, a small town north of West Palm Beach. She graduated from UFL and is currently dating a sportzball player named Jack Flaherty, who is a pitcher for something called the “St. Louis Cardinals”. If anyone has the first clue what that means, please do enlighten me in the comments below.

(Note: that was sarcasm. I know what baseball is – though I find it about as interesting to watch as cricket, these days. Which is to say, not very.)

Whatever and however bad her tastes in sports might be, her taste in bras and swimsuits is certainly excellent.

OK, chaps, off to work with you. We’ve got more CRUSHING!!! to do, and that’s not going to happen on its own.

    I have a friend that’s a commercial pilot. When those supermax planes went down I asked him what he thought.

    He said “Not enough SIM time”.

    Like Bill alluded in the video, he elaborated on the sad fact that 3rd world airlines nearly always skimp on training. Like the video said – they sold the thing. They have no control who flies it and how they are trained after that.

    I’d have no issue flying on one from Southwest Airlines, where their pilots have been flying 737s forever. Matter of fact, I think I have flown on them before.
