“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 Hawaii Five-Oh-S**t

by | Jan 18, 2021 | Mondays | 8 comments

Well, two days to go until the Fake Inauguration of the Fake President, Sleepy Creepy Corrupt Slow Uncle Joe, and the San Francisc-Ho as his Veep. Things are looking bleak and difficult. We have no idea how they will go.

Nonetheless, I’m not overly worried or disheartened. Whatever will happen, will happen, and we simply need to get on with the business of doing what we are commanded to do by our Lord.

This is not easy or simple. But then, it’s not supposed to be, either. God will do what He needs to do in His own time. Maybe that means that the God-Emperor of Mankind will be deposed on Wednesday and usurped by people who have absolutely zero legitimacy. If that happens, then the country itself is doomed. We know that one-party rule is on the way – the Republicans completely destroyed their own party by refusing to stand up to blatant electoral theft, and they deserve their fate now.

But forces are on the move throughout the US government that we simply don’t understand. Nobody knows what is going on. We simply do not have any clue what will happen in the next 48 hours. So, pray, hope, and believe. And whatever happens – when God calls you to your duty, DO NOT let Him down.

Pray that the God-Emperor doesn’t let Him down either.

In the meantime – given that it’s REALLY FREAKIN’ COLD in much of the Northern Hemisphere right now, which is where most of my readership is based (with apologies to my Antipodean readers), let’s remind ourselves of what life is like in a nice warm friendly place like, say, Hawaii.

This week’s theme is a suggestion from our good friend The Male Brain, who reminds us that January 18th, 1778, is the date on which a certain Captain James Cook discovered the Hawaiian Islands. The story of that discovery is both fascinating and a warning from history:

In 1768, Cook, a surveyor in the Royal Navy, was commissioned a lieutenant in command of the H.M.S. Endeavor and led an expedition that took scientists to Tahiti to chart the course of the planet Venus. In 1771, he returned to England, having explored the coast of New Zealand and Australia and circumnavigated the globe. Beginning in 1772, he commanded a major mission to the South Pacific and during the next three years explored the Antarctic region, charted the New Hebrides, and discovered New Caledonia. In 1776, he sailed from England again as commander of the H.M.S. Resolution and Discovery and in 1778 made his first visit to the Hawaiian Islands.

Cook and his crew were welcomed by the Hawaiians, who were fascinated by the Europeans’ ships and their use of iron. Cook provisioned his ships by trading the metal, and his sailors traded iron nails for sex. The ships then made a brief stop at Ni’ihau and headed north to look for the western end of a northwest passage from the North Atlantic to the Pacific. Almost one year later, Cook’s two ships returned to the Hawaiian Islands and found a safe harbor in Hawaii’s Kealakekua Bay.

It is suspected that the Hawaiians attached religious significance to the first stay of the Europeans on their islands. In Cook’s second visit, there was no question of this phenomenon. Kealakekua Bay was considered the sacred harbor of Lono, the fertility god of the Hawaiians, and at the time of Cook’s arrival the locals were engaged in a festival dedicated to Lono. Cook and his compatriots were welcomed as gods and for the next month exploited the Hawaiians’ good will. After one of the crewmembers died, exposing the Europeans as mere mortals, relations became strained. On February 4, 1779, the British ships sailed from Kealakekua Bay, but rough seas damaged the foremast of the Resolution, and after only a week at sea the expedition was forced to return to Hawaii.

I visited Hawaii for a couple of days to attend a good friend’s wedding all the way back in 2011. I specifically spent time in Maui. My memories are of a truly beautiful, hot, sunny place full of friendly locals – and ridiculously high prices. Everything has to be imported into the state and as such it is a very costly place to live and do business. Add to that the fact that much of the state’s economy is totally dependent upon the gubmint, and you have one of the most absurdly lopsided political situations anywhere in the Union.

That is why the Hawaiians can keep electing vapid, vacuous idiots like Sen. Masie Hirono. (Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is something of an honourable exception – I have plenty of differences with Maj. Gabbard, not least on religious grounds, but I respect her accomplishments.)

They are also some of the biggest racists that you will ever meet. Hawaiians aren’t quite as racist as the Chinese, but they give Indians a serious run for second place.

And their work ethic is… poor, to put it very mildly. A friend and longtime reader used to tell me stories about how his buddies in the Navy viewed the Hawaiians as feckless, lazy, and utterly useless – according to those friends of my friend, the Hawaiians would take a 6-month refit job and turn it into an 18-month job.

All of that aside – here are some cool videos from Dawn Pine about Hawaii to bring you a touch of tropical culture and put you in that “Aloha!” mood for this miserable Monday:

And of course the title of this post comes from none other than the legendary theme for the TV show:

Yes, the ORIGINAL, not the remake from years later that was NOWHERE NEAR AS GOOD.

And here’s the best moment from that show:

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, gave a speech in Alamo, TX – no, not at THE Alamo, which is in San Antonio, but rather the town of Alamo, in Hidalgo County, about 270 miles south of the sacred fort. (I’ve been there twice. I HIGHLY recommend the visit.) Apparently this speech made a lot of his supporters tear their hair out in despair, so don’t watch it if you aren’t in a black-pilled mood:

As I’ve said for a while now – whatever will happen, will happen. President Trump has an historic opportunity to become the greatest President in the history of his nation – or go down in that same history as the biggest failure of all time.

We’ll see what he does. For now, though, relax, wait, and trust that somewhere, there is a plan of some kind operating behind the scenes.

Our Beloved and Dreaded Supreme Dark Lord (PBUH) Voxemort the Merciless is putting his words to action and has a tremendously exciting new initiative to show off:

Remember how much FUN comic books used to be?

We’re getting back to that. And Marvel and DC aren’t going to be part of the future.

#BasedTucker is based:

Mark Dice gives a sweeping overview of the current and future state of the ongoing Big Tech crackdown:

Dave from Blue Collar Logic offers up his thoughts about the Storming of the Hill from a couple of weeks ago:

And Jason explains why Skeletorwitch of the West is trying to impeach the God-Emperor again – which is an action that defies all logic, common sense, history, and the small and by this point completely irrelevant matter of the Constitution:

Bill Whittle reckons that the Daemoncrats are attacking the American people in the vain hope of frightening them into staying “on the reservation” – and it’s not working:

The Male Brain has plenty of good stuff to offer us this week. We start with a highly amusing video from Film Theory about the devastating impact that Wonder Woman would have had on humanity, were she not a highly unrealistic and hugely overpowered figment of a sexual deviant’s imagination:

Dawn Pine‘s comment on the subject was pretty damned funny:

I’m willing to pay for the movie showing them crashing due to lack of fuel. I’ll bet they’ll land on Diana’s island. Suggest Steve becomes a sex slave and… Wait, what were we talking about?

Ryan George demonstrates the realities of camping:

Felix Rex offers up a kind of “no shit Sherlock” moment of the week, but he offers up a lot of good evidence and ideas to support the argument:

Larry Elder points out that we all like winners – but most of us are NOT winners, and the worst of us always believe that we are not winners because of someone else. In reality, it’s our own damned fault:

Another great video from J.P. Sears:

Apparently Rep. Taylor Greene from the GOP plans to bring forth Articles of Impeachment the day after the Fake President is sworn in – good luck to her with that:

This is obviously a quixotic effort given Daemoncrat control over the House AND the Senate. And if the USA becomes an official one-party state, there is simply no way that any Daemoncrat President will ever be impeached. But Daemoncrats, in their hubris and stupidity, have failed to understand that when you simply shut down the ability of half the country to air their grievances, and you show very clearly that you absolutely hate them, then they will eventually resort to extreme violence to get their way.

Leftists are going to be very, very horrified when they see just how much of their own blood will be running in the streets over the next ten years.

Moving on – John Stossel gives you the latest “Leftist Scum Seek Out Other People’s Money” moment of the week:

Paul Ramsey offers up a different kind of video from his usual output, about how the cliques that we experience in our formative years influence and shape our lives growing up, and how we learn power dynamics from a very young age:

PJW did a livestream with the rather bug-eyed and gravel-voiced Alex Jones about the final days (possibly) of the God-Emperor:

Lord Razor of the Fist Clan, on the other hand, is as ebullient and profane as ever about the prospects of a second Trump term:

China Uncensored looks at the utter failures of Europe’s policies toward China:

It’s important to understand that China under Xi Jinping is making many of the exact same mistakes that scuppered the American empire – and which sank China’s imperial ambitions in the past.

China is not an innovative nation anymore – it hasn’t been for centuries. These days, China is very, very good at copying other people’s technologies and ripping them off and mass-producing them. But it isn’t actually a very good innovator. On top of which, it has enormous social and political inertia holding it back. So, while Chinese hegemony, at least in the Pacific, is a virtual certainty over the next 50 years, it’s not going to last long. The Chinese empire is already showing some signs of breakdown and vulnerability – it won’t take much for China to devolve back into its constituent nations.

America Uncovered examines the virulent ideology of Critical Theory and the way in which it infiltrated Western culture:

Jared Taylor from American Renaissance welcomes the God-Emperor to the Gulag built by Big Tech to contain free expression and thought:

Terrence Popp has some straightforward advice to offer about the coming Hell Times:

Joker from Better Bachelor has some very sound advice to offer as Western “civilisation” lurches and stumbles ever closer to total collapse:

He’s absolutely right. Now, there IS one exception: widows from happy marriages who had children. These women are not resource leeches and (usually) aren’t completely batshit insane. But, as a general rule, single mums are provider-hunters and bad dating material.

Frank Turek from Cross Examined explains how the gifts of the Holy Spirit work – and they absolutely do work:

The Dizzle has been all over Big Tech this week, largely taking a break from his usual videos roasting the most obvious false prophet in human history and the most ridiculous false revelation of all time:

As I pointed out a couple of days ago, if you continue to make yourself dependent on Big Tech for all of your business and personal data, you are a damned fool. Take proactive steps to protect yourself.

Former Christian pop star Alisa Childers has some interesting interviews over on her YouTube channel. This interview with John Cooper – apparently a member of a band that I’ve never heard of – is an interesting one about lukewarm Christians and the dangers that they pose:

They are absolutely right about the foolishness of turning away from God and trying to bend the Gospels and the Scriptures to suit themselves.

Let’s be clear about this: progressive Christianity is NOT CHRISTIANITY. It’s just trash. And those who fall for the lies of the progressives will damn themselves.

Pay special attention to what Mr. Cooper says, about halfway through the interview, in which he discusses how he was approached by one of the “kingmakers” in the music industry. That is what the ticket-takers will offer you. This is how they tempt you. His experience was as perfect a translation of the Temptation of Jesus as you can find.

Dr. Jay Smith from Pfander Films addresses his critics on the subject of Koran preservation (yet again):

The whole issue of Koranic preservation is looking worse and worse for Muslims by the day. The entire proposition of “word-for-word preservation” is simply unsupportable at this point.

Christian polemicists fighting against the tide of filth and evil that is Islam used to be severely hamstrung by their lack of knowledge or credibility in Arabic. But now the tables have turned upon Islam, because native Arabic speakers like Christian Prince, Sam Shamoun, Al Fadi, Daughter of Christ, Murad from Sneaker’s Corner, and of course Rob Christian are fully capable of taking on the lies and nonsense of Islamic apologists anytime, anywhere:

When you’re dealing with atheists and sceptics with respect to pro-life and anti-life positions (there is no such thing as a “pro-choice” position), you can take a few tips from Tim from Red Pen Logic:

That’s how you do it. Look at what the Bible actually says, compare it with what the !!!SCIENCE!!11!!!! says (more specifically, the scientage), and then argue from there. What you’re going to find is that the scientage and the Bible do not conflict.

Midnight’s Edge reports that the itchy, smelly, burning infectious disease that is ST:D may well FINALLY be dead:

Overlord Dicktor Van Doomcock reports on the rapidly escalating civil war at Lucasfilm:

While we’re on the subject of awful stuff, Gary from Nerdrotic thought that the season/series finale of Star Turd: Discovery was truly appalling:

The Drinker drained a few bottles of good Scotch watching a sci-fi show called The Expanse, and apparently… it’s REALLY GOOD:

Your “Science is F***ING WEIRD” moment of the week is all about how Microsoft wants to create a chatbot out of you even after you die:

According to the new Microsoft patent, images, voice data, social media posts, electronic messages, and written letters can all be used to “create or modify a specific index in the theme of the specific person’s personality.” From there, engineers can use the index to train a chatbot to converse like that person—yes, even if they’re already dead.This content is imported from YouTube. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

Even creepier: The application could also don the likeness of your dead loved one in a “2D or 3D model,” and utilize their voice while talking to you.This content is imported from {embed-name}. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

This sort of chatbot opens a whole can of worms when it comes to data rights and privacy. “Technically, we can recreate anyone online given enough data,” Faheem Hussain, a clinical assistant professor at Arizona State University’s School for the Future of Innovation in Society, told Reuters in April 2020. “That opens up a Pandora’s box of ethical implications.”

Go ahead, tell me how Microsoft is a totally benign and decent corporation, only interested in doing the right thing for all of us. This, by the way, is the same company that gives us a shitty operating system that comes installed by default on all new PCs, and constantly breaks it every time they try to update something.

Your long read of the week is from The Male Brain, and it’s all about the continued transformation of Commiepornia into a true one-party totalitarian state:

The Office of Election Cybersecurity isn’t non-partisan and it isn’t keeping anyone’s votes safe. It’s in a position to use government power to censor questions about election fraud by its party, while working with a consulting firm involved in one of the most contentious elements of the election, whose results the office’s boss expects will put him in the United States Senate.

Corruption is one thing. Government censorship of complaints about corruption is another.

70 years after George Orwell wrote 1984, California Democrats had created their own Ministry of Information inside the government in a blatant violation of the First Amendment. The Democrat operatives running the government censorship office claim that they aren’t engaging in censorship because they’re not the ones directly censoring online speech. Yet.

“We don’t take down posts, that is not our role to play,” Dresner insisted. “We alert potential sources of misinformation to the social media companies.”

That’s the difference between the government sending in jackbooted thugs to smash up a printing press and putting in a call to the editor warning him not to print a particular article.

Freedom of Speech doesn’t just refer to the former, but also to the chilling effect of the latter.

“The Bill of Rights was designed to keep agents of government and official eavesdroppers away from assemblies of people. The aim was to allow men to be free and independent and to assert their rights against government,” Justice Douglas once wrote. “When an intelligence officer looks over every nonconformist’s shoulder in the library… the America once extolled as the voice of liberty heard around the world no longer is cast in the image which Jefferson and Madison designed, but more in the Russian image.”

That’s exactly what California Democrats have in mind by creating databases of political enemies, ranking them by “threat level”, and pressuring their allied monopolies to silence them.

If you are still silly enough to live in Clownipornia – GET THE F**K OUT. And leave your stupid beach bum politics behind when you go. Texans and Arizonans sure as shit don’t like you simply because of where you are from – don’t give them reasons to shoot you when you up sticks and move to their states and experience a huge boost, overnight, in your overall standard of living.

Linkage is good for you:

Well exactly. Only a Daemoncrat would be dumb enough not to understand that.

Headlines of the week indicate that 2021 is shaping up to be FAR more insane than 2020 – which, of course, is what I’ve been saying for MONTHS:

Apparently that’s an ACTUAL CNN CORRECTION.

And finally, after much fannying about, here’s your Instathot with – coincidentally – a most excellent fanny. This week’s starting thot is Kayla Moody, apparently from Floriduh and of indeterminate age (though most likely in her mid-thirties). She claims to be a “proud military wife”, but she spends a suspicious amount of time flaunting her boobs and butt for guys other than her husband, so I’m not really sure if that applies.

At any rate, that’s it for this week. Off to work with you now.

    I disagree on dating single moms.
    Will be sending a post on that, but you may not like it.

    • Didact

      Sure. I welcome a different view on the subject.


    I finally wrapped up a game I’ve been playing on and off for 15 years (Final Fantasy XII, if you care) and now I’m going to take a crack at Halo 5. I did the first level a while back, but I’m very confused.

    nerd alert

    It was my understanding that Requiem was the Prometheans’ base of operations, since that’s where the Ur-Didact was hanging out in his Cryptum. I figured that was it for the Prometheans when it got pitched into the sun at the end of Spartan Ops. So why the hell are there Prometheans everywhere now? Are these the ones that were Composed from New Phoenix? And why are they fighting against Jul’s Covenant? Didn’t they spend all of Spartan Ops working together? I also found it annoying that Jul M’dama was unceremoniously snuffed out after getting built up in ten chapters of Spartan Ops and an entire novel trilogy. Also, Halsey’s NOT mad at the UNSC anymore?

    /nerd alert

    I get that 343 wants you to buy all the expanded universe stuff, but man, if you come into this game right after Spartan Ops, you have NO idea what the hell is going on…

    • Bardelys the Magnificent

      I also visited the islands for a wedding a few years back, and I concur with all things Hawaii. Aloha Stadium was just condemned, and the football team may lose Division 1 status because of it. This is a stadium that used to host the Pro Bowl (the NFL’s all-star game) and several college bowl games a year. They lost the Pro Bowl several years ago, and all but one bowl game. Lately, it gets more use as a flea market than a sporting venue. There have been several attempts to fix it, but various Hawaii Problems ™ prevented it, like doing the work on time. Sad, because it really was a bit of a modern marvel when it opened.

        I also visited the islands for a wedding a few years back, and I concur with all things Hawaii.

        Yeah. They are fun, charming, laid back, and reasonably friendly – but they are also lazy racist bastards when they want to be. The dichotomy is weird but makes a lot of sense once you see it in action elsewhere in the world (e.g. India).

    • Didact

      I get that 343 wants you to buy all the expanded universe stuff, but man, if you come into this game right after Spartan Ops, you have NO idea what the hell is going on…

      Yeah. The plot of H5:G is a complete and total fustercluck, and I pointed that out in my original review. My opinion some 5 years later is that Brian Reed bent the plot over his writing table and raped it with a stack of quarters – and if that sounds a bit graphic, I’d say it is if anything an understatement.

      The entire plot is idiotic. None of it makes any sense. Even the Guardians themselves don’t make sense. I really do think that H5:G broke the franchise and derailed 343i after the solid, if somewhat incomplete, base that they built with HALO 4.


    Random question for you: whilst an acolyte of the Iron God is paying tribute to him, if he observes another acolyte lifting in a way that endangers himself, should one a) chime in and set this acolyte on the correct path, or b) shut up and mind one’s own business?

    This is something I see all the time at my gym. Today I witnessed two younger dudes deadlifting by picking up the bar and bending at the waist to “lift” it. I’m not normally into correcting people (splinters and wooden beams and all that) but I’d be happy if someone helped me out in that way. Then again, given the energy in that place, I don’t think I’m wrong to expect a hostile response. What say you?

    • Didact

      Now that is an excellent question. I’ve been in that position myself. My view is that in general, you’re best off keeping quiet and staying out of the way. However, if you are older than the two numbnuts in questions, OR can lift more weight (or better yet, both), and you are doing deadlifts elsewhere in the gym where they can see you, then I don’t see any problem with walking over to tell them how to lift properly.

      The key is to do so in a way that doesn’t get their dander up. Typically this involves saying something like, “Hey, I see you like to do deadlifts – do you want to know how to really rack up some serious numbers?”. Good technique leads to greater strength. Once you show them how to lift with their legs rather than their backs, they’ll be a lot happier.
