“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 with the Bride of Chucky

by | Aug 29, 2022 | Mondays | 1 comment

Here we go yet again, and it’s a dreary, depressing, sleepy day. If you happen to live in PommieBastardLande, or mainland Europe, it’s even worse, because we’re now looking at endless strikes, public transport delays, problems, huge price hikes, and God only knows what else will go wrong.

So let’s take everyone’s minds off the misery a bit with yet another Great Mondaydact Browser Crusher.

We’re going to get to the politicking a bit early today, because the presumptive Prime Minister of PommieBastardLande, one Liz Truss – who bears an absolutely uncanny, and extremely terrifying, resemblance to Chucky – has said some unbelievably stupid things about using nukes on Russia:

I mean, look, she’s a blithering idiot, but we really need to explore just how big a moron she actually is to fully appreciate the pickle in which the Limeys have gotten themselves now.


Like I said – dumbass. Dumber even than a bag of hammers – and less useful, too, because at least you can use hammers to do things.

Dawn of Battle

The Male Brain is back with plenty to provoke, amuse, and entertain this week. We start with a new video from the great Felix Rex about how the WEF and the Goolag are working together to delete the “unused” bits of the internet – and thereby delete your access to free information:

Ryan George explains that life really is a bit different from a billionaire’s perspective:

Prager U asks a rather pertinent and relevant question in this day and age:

Poli-ticking Off

Mark Dice unpacks what the Zuckerbot said about the Fibbies conspiring with Faceborg to manipulate the 2020 election:

This story is huge, and shows exactly how little “democracy” actually matters anymore. There is no such thing when tech companies can collude with the government to do away with a legitimate vote.

Forget all of this nonsense about “trusting the system” and “voting the bastards out”, it’s not going to work. The only possible answer is to tear down the entire rotten system and start over – preferably with a real tyrant, because that is the only way any of this is ever going to work out.

China Uncensored points out that quite a substantial portion of China’s yoot is severely disaffected by the current economic malaise affecting the country:

That being said, I remain deeply sceptical of any reports of an impending widespread economic and political collapse in the country. I just do not see it happening.

The dynamic duo over at Redacted are greatly impressed by the Neo-Tsar and his effortless ability to own the Western elites:

Jackson Hinkle discusses the recent deplatforming of one Andrew Tate:

I honestly had no idea who Mr. Tate was before the news broke that he had been completely demonetised and deplatformed. Then I listened to his discussion with #BasedTucker, and I saw pretty quickly that Mr. Tate was simply shut down for telling basic truths about men, women, and geopolitics.

In Clown World, if you speak the truth, you will immediately be silenced. The Prince of this world cannot bear to hear the truth, because the truth is what cast him out in the first place. But that is precisely why we must tell it, no matter what – because it is far beter to stand with God and be judged by the world, than to stand with the world and be judged by God.

Jackson and Andrew may well be atheists, or agnostics, or whatever. I care not. All I know is that they tell it like it is. For that reason alone, they deserve our support and attention.

Jacob Dreizin has some very dire warnings for all of us about coming food crises and starvation, which is a deeply unpleasant topic, but I think he makes a lot of good points:

Дед Сварливый Говорит!

Grandpa Grumpuss grumps, grumpily about a number of different topics, in his signature style:

It’s All Greek To Us

The erudite gentlemen of The Duran did a terrific interview with Brian Berletic of The New Atlas to ask him for his views about the geopolitical and strategic situations in and around 404 and Taiwan:

Baldy Breakdown

Speaking of Brian Berletic (not his actual name, by the way), he did an excellent interview with Mark Sleboda, a Canadian (I think) scholar living in Russia who speaks near-native Russian and once worked with Alexander Dugin at Moscow State University:

Righteous Rantery

Lord Razor of the Fist Clan goes to GAMESCOM and isn’t impressed:

PJW points out that the coming winter is going to be bad – I mean, really bad:

The irrepressible, inimitable Katie Hopkins tells it like it is about Ukrainian refugees:

Sorelle Amore Finance hypes up the crash of China’s real-estate market:

Dr. John Campbell has some good news to report, finally, about the Scamdemic and how even the hypochondriac Limeys are beginning to wise up to the realities of the rather mild Moronica strain:

Warriors of Faith

Christian Prince smashes an Abdool’s “arguments”, destroys another’s misunderstanding of Scripture, and best of all, leads a former Muslim away from the lies of Izzlam and toward the truth:

The Dizzle sits down with Al-Fadi to refute one of the dumbest counterarguments that Muzzies make whenever anyone brings up the fact that Aisha was 9 when Mo’Lester consummated his “marriage” with her:

Dr. Jay Smith from PfanderFilms also had a chance to talk to Al-Fadi about a different topic – the theory that the original template for Muhammad was actually a Christian:

Colin from Islam Critiqued refutes the stupid Izzlamist argument that the Satanic Verses have no basis in their scriptures and never happened – they DID happen, they are right there in the current Koran, and Muslims have been tying themselves into knots for CENTURIES trying to explain away this stuff:

Manly Men of Manliness

Terrence Popp offers up some hard-won lessons about military marriage and long-distance relationships, based on his own (very bad) experiences:

Joker from Better Bachelor interviews the one and only Aaron Clarey about dating, finances, and living a free life:

Burn Paedowood to the Ground

Midnight’s Edge does not have high hopes for the upcoming Amazog Lhurrd of the Rangs adaptation:

Overlord Dicktor Van Doomcock unpacks Queen Karen Kennedy’s original intentions for the STAR WARS trilogy:

Gary from Nerdrotic watched the latest LotRRoP trailer so that you didn’t have to:

Ryan Kinel puts the blame for the disaster that is She-Hulk squarely where it belongs – with the cast and crew:

The Drinker watched some weird movie with a cast that clearly was too good for it, and wants that bit of his life back:

Reading Too Much Into Things

Your “Science is F***ING WEIRD” moment of the week is from The Male Brain and concerns some rather interesting findings about how political affiliations are linked with overall all-cause mortality in the USA – with some even more disconcerting findings at the racial and gender levels:

Health outcomes such as mortality rates vary considerably among different groups and populations in the United States. Inequalities in mortality exist between people of different sexes, races, and ethnicities, and more recent work has highlighted widening gaps between urban and rural areas.1 One less well studied factor is political environment, which is associated with policies, laws, and regulations that influence health, including safety net programmes (eg, Medicaid), tobacco control, gun laws, and environmental protections as well as national and state financial and budgetary decisions, especially for public health related programmes. In addition, political environment is also associated with communicable disease related health behaviors, such as social distancing and vaccine acceptance, as well as traditional health behaviors (healthy diet, exercise).234

Previous studies have shown that counties that elect Republican candidates tend to experience worse health outcomes, such as fewer gains in life expectancy and increased rates of opioid prescription.56789 However, it is unknown how these trends have changed since the 2016 presidential election. Furthermore, given that political preference often varies by sex, race, ethnicity, and urban and rural location, it is also not known to what extent county level political environment and mortality rates differ across racial and ethnic groups. For example, although black and Hispanic Americans are more likely to vote for candidates of the Democratic party, it is unclear if black and Hispanic residents of Democratic majority counties have experienced gains or losses in mortality rates compared with those living in Republican majority counties.10 Lastly, although previous analyses have assessed trends in mortality or life expectancy, or both in relation to county political voting status, they have not assessed trends in counties that consistently vote for one party or another or assessed inflection points in mortality trends by political environment.

In this analysis, using national mortality and federal and state election data, we sought to answer three questions. First, how did trends in age adjusted mortality rates (AAMRs) in the US change by residents’ political environment, based on county level presidential election decisions, from 1999 to 2019? Second, did these overall patterns in AAMR differ among key subgroups by sex, race and ethnicity, and urban-rural status? And third, which conditions were responsible for these changes?

Your long read of the week is also from Dawn Pine and is a piece by Anastasia Katz for American Renaissance about the reasons why we in the West are ruled by utter incompetents and morons – it starts with the adolt edjoomuhcayshun providers, who are themselves idiots:

Maintaining standards for teachers in a world that expects equal outcomes is hard and — given the all the time spent in court — expensive. After a ruling against the LAST in 2012, New York City tried to use another test that would not violate the law, and again, a lawsuit claimed that test was discriminatory. Kimba Wood, the white female judge who ruled that the LAST violated minority teachers’ civil rights, threw out the second test as well. A third test, the Academic Literacy Skills Test (ALST), was also challenged in court, but in 2015, Judge Wood ruled that the ALST was acceptable.

What’s surprising is that whites, Hispanics, and blacks did not score equally well on it. No genuine test of knowledge or ability gives that result. Sixty-four percent of whites passed the ALST on the first try, while only 46 percent of Hispanics and 41 percent of blacks did. (Like the LAST, teachers could retake the test if they didn’t pass the first time.) There was still disparate impact, but Judge Wood gave the Academic Literacy Skills Test the green light because its content was somehow “representative of the content of a New York State public-school teacher’s job.” Courts had ruled that if an employment test has a disparate impact, it must be one that measures skills necessary for the job.

The ALST tested only for reading and writing, which means that many LAST subjects — math, science, history, humanities, social science, and visual and performing arts — were eliminated.

Elementary school teachers stay with their class the whole day and teach all subjects. Middle school and high school teachers teach only one subject, and for many of them, that subject is math, science, social studies, or the arts. So, how were the eliminated subjects not “representative of the content of a New York State public school teacher’s job?”

Linkage is good for you:

And some more from Dawn Pine:


The Neo-Tsar just signed a decree that will expand the size of Russia’s armed forces to over 1.3 million, as part of its ongoing modernisation and expansion programme:

Those Who Fail To Learn From History…

History lessons of the week come from Dawn Pine, and concern a nasty episode called The Seven Years’ War:

This was, according to none other than Churchill himself, perhaps the first World War.

And do you want to know who (inadvertently) started it?

George Washington. Yes, really.

Don’t get me wrong, Ol’ George was a BAMF. But he wasn’t actually that great a general and strategist. Other, better tacticians and strategists fought in and won the Revolutionary War – but Washington’s signature genius came from his efforts to preserve, train, and build his army during the winter at Valley Forge.

Your Great Man of the Week was such a badass that Baldy Wheeler needed TWO videos to do him justice – Pompeii the Great:

HALO Nation

Slayergod Remy aka Mint Blitz reckons that 343i seems to be listening properly to the fans, which is good:

Meme Warfare

First set of pichkers comes from our good friend The Male Brain, and are decidedly… well, grown-up in nature:

If you are young
This is why one must be cool, calm and collected
Did not see that coming (pun intended)
Note to all couples – going to a restaurant is OK if you eat light. Fill up and it ain’t going to be romantic afterwards.
Always remember your priorities
10 bucks says this doesn’t work
F#@K ME!
A girl with a sense of humor? and a good one? WOW, just WOW
No, it is a fashion statement that says – “Look at me”
Bad case of Gingervitis?
Somehow I doubt it
I’m curious now – let’s try
That kid has a future in marketing

Here are a couple that show you how to travel with attitude:

I believe we all felt that at some point
Was curious but not at the same age


The way things are going right now, we’ll be LUCKY to lose just 50%
Sounds about right
And that’s the God-Emperor’s response
Well don’t all my SOCOM buddies feel like asshats now
Hear that? It’s the sound of complete and total OWNAGE

Headlines of the week indicate that maybe giving Floriduh Man a driver’s license wasn’t the best of ideas:

Your “I Fail to See the Problem” moment of the week:

Your “I Literally Bought a Pub” moment of the week:

(You kind of have to be British to understand what “I bought a pub” means.)

Your “The Ocean Isn’t Nearly Endangered ENOUGH” moment of the week:

Your “Dog Days” moment of the week:

Your “This Is Gonna Be GOOD” moment of the week:

Just to put that last one into context:

This will be of considerable use to a substantial part of my readership:

The world really, truly does need more rednecks
If by “Crackers” you mean “complete and utter f***ing nutballs”, then yes, this applies to me
Coming soon from a Hollyweird that has plainly run out of ideas
Is it, though???
That could be Neil Peart’s drum kit… and yes, he DID have a cowbell on it
I’d still ask her out on a date, even with the paint
And soy, in the USA, anyway
I mean… you really can’t argue with the logic…

Animal Planet

Your aminules are adorkable moment of the week:

See, normally when you’re THAT close to a bear, it’s time to make your peace with your Maker, because you’re about to go meet Him, via a bear’s digestive tract…

One more, since I’m in a generous mood:

And also your animals are absolute DICKS moment of the week, to balance things out:

Crocodiles are 10 feet of pissed-off armour-plated saw-toothed CRANKY BASTARD. Living anywhere near one has got to be like being a xenos around an Angry Space Marine armed with a chainsword.

And finally, your “Meanwhile, in Russia” moment of the week:

The Lords of Steel

Gym beast props this week go to the one and only TRUE Beast, Eddie Hall, who recently did something so ridiculously over the top that he pretty much owns this whole segment forever now:

Yeah. He squatted the SQUAT RACK.

Ass-Kicking of the Eight Limbs

Samart Payakaroon, widely acknowledged by fellow practitioners across multiple generations of the art to be the greatest nak muay of all time, tells you how to avoid punches like you’re in The Matrix:

And now let’s watch “Iron Man” Rodtang Jitmuangnon ignore literally ALL of that advice and just walk through insane amounts of punishment for fun:

Bullshido Beatdown

Wise Uncle Chael the American Gangster examines the Costa-Rockhold fight that saw Luke (probably) hang up his gloves for good:

While we’re on the subject of MMA, let’s take a closer look at the life and skills of THE greatest WMMA fighter ever, Valentina “Bullet” Shevchenko:

I don’t care whose name you put into the equation – there is simply NO ONE better than Valentina at what she does. Not even Amanda Nunes has such a well-rounded skill set – and, in my view, Nunes was gifted that last split-decision win over Valentina at UFC 215, and that was 5 years ago too. Both fighters have evolved since then, but Shevchenko’s skills both on the feet and on the ground are scary good.

She’s about the only female MMA fighter that I pay attention to – otherwise, I find the entire spectacle of WMMA to be quite sordid and nasty. But you have to appreciate skill and talent wherever you find it, and she is AMAZING.

Palate Cleansers

Maria Callas sings:

Gingervitis Treatment

Alina Gingertail does her thing:

Livin’ in the Land of the Metal Gods

Also Einstein: “I fear that someday people will post my pic on the Internet with bogus made-up quotations in Comic Sans font”

Rock Out With Your Glock Out

Hot Totty

As you can see, we’ve shuffled things around a little, so you get serious heaping helpings of eye-candy before you have to get back to the grind. We close, as always, with the Instathot to get the week off to the best possible start on the worst possible day. This here is Violetta Gracheva (Виолетта Грачева), age 29 from Rostov-on-Don, Russia. Despite her clearly plastic figure, she’s apparently quite a lot smarter than her PFDs might suggest. She studied at Moscow State Technical Institute – Bauman, and now works as a “fitness model”, while dating a football player.

In English parlance, she is what is known as a “WAG” – “Wife And Girlfriend” of an athlete – and this sort of look is quite typical among that set in PommieBastardLande, it must be said. She’d fit right in over there.

Here’s a not-particularly-nice-but-quite-funny thought: given that footballers play with inflatable bouncy things for a living, is it really any surprise that they do the same when they’re off the clock?

OK, that’s all, show’s over, back to work scrubbing toilets or whatever.

    Another Fine Time investment, great curation.

    “No Respect for a Man Who Can Spell a Word Only One Way” – Andrew Jackson OR Liz Truss?

    When Liz Truss is deadpan delivering the idea that dogs will deter drones at 10 seconds in, the face on the man behind her is PRICELESS.

    RE Andrew Tate: This man is a straight-up pimp and has no business being recognized or supported by anyone, in particular the right. In addition, he’s a charlatan and a liar and he preys on the weak. He’s on video enjoying beating women in his ‘employ’ and is downright evil.

    Jacob Dreizin: He’s right about the collapse of industrial agriculture. I’m in the chemicals industry. We’re dealing with chronic shortages in ammoniums and phosphates, both backbone compounds for fertilizer. Energy costs are continuing to shut down production in Europe. Then there’s drought across the entire northern hemisphere, shutting down China hydroelectric power plants leading to factory shutdowns. It’s bad this year. Food Production will be worse next year as this industrial down cycle comes home. (GO LONG WHISKEY: Grain will go up in cost next year and spirits stay good in the bottle)

    But Jacob Dreizin could add something else: people can take control of life. If you get some chickens or ducks right now, they don’t take much space. They can even live inside like a parrot. They can eat your kitchen scraps and give you back eggs. 8 months from hatching to producing eggs means getting started now is a good idea. https://raisingwood.com/2022/08/food-recovery-systems/
    We’re keeping an incubator running and bartering chicks is a useful side hustle.
    Gardening needs to start earlier instead of later. 200sqft can make a lot of food. We live in a bountiful creative order from Yahweh. Its never been easier to grow your food, but don’t wait until you are hungry to get after it: DavidTheGood writes very accessible and based gardening books: https://www.amazon.com/Grow-Die-Guide-Survival-Gardening/dp/195528900X

    Tony Garnett is going to wake up in a bathtub full of ice. What are kind of thinking is this, going to Ukraine with this chick?!?

    So much soy quoted in the Daily Mail piece:

    “He added: ‘I want to propose to this beautiful lady.’
    Sofiia added: ‘We are planning our life together. I want to be a mother. I want to have children.

    ‘I am a young woman so it can wait a few years and I hope that Tony can have his vasectomy reversed so that we can become a family together.’“

    Meanwhile in Russia, Bagheera the panther is on a leash and hangs out with cows. I keep watching for the trick reveal but there isn’t any, just simply unbelievable. My cats won’t deal with a leash. My cows for sure would not tolerate being that close to unknown dogs or predator cats, barely even me.

    That black and white bull is a bit like what a father and husband needs to be. He sees the clown world nearby and stays vigilant, but doesn’t charge off and leave his family behind. Just a solid and reliable presence between the madness and the good, beautiful and the true.

    Eddie Hall squatted the squat rack. That’s the ONLY PROPER USE of a smith machine.
