“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 Crown and Ring

by | Sep 12, 2022 | Mondays | 4 comments

Monday is back with a vengeance, and I for one am definitely feeling it. My Sunday workouts involve maxing out the weight on squats and deadlifts, and the older I get, the longer it takes to recover from that kind of a workout. On top of which, the mood in some parts of the world is rather despondent and gloomy, seeing as we witnessed the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II of PommieBastardLande last week.

So let’s cheer ourselves up by remembering the good times when the Deare Olde Queene did some of her best work:

There was her epic coronation all the way back in 1953:

That was a vastly different world from the one we live in now – and, if I am honest, it was a far better one in most ways.

Her Majesty wasn’t all just pomp and circumstance, though – she did have quite a sense of humour, too:

I am well aware that not everyone particularly likes the Royal Family. Quite a few people have argued that the Royal Family is DEEPLY embedded with the globalist cabal that has done so much to wreck humanity’s happiness and prosperity for the last thirty years. There is considerable truth to this – just look at the various scandals of Prince Andrew, or the close friendship between Harry the Ginger Whinger and Odumbass the Lightworker.

The Queen herself may – I repeat, MAY – have been involved in some of this. I have seen no evidence to support that view. The argument posed most often is that if you look at Prince Phillip and the deterioration of his face over the years, and the weird look in his eyes, then surely that is a sign of deep corruption.

Perhaps it is. I have strong doubts about it, given that my own grandfather was 92 when he died, and he simply looked like a man in the grips of deep dementia when I last saw him. Fact is, we don’t get better looking as we age, beyond a certain point – usually around 70 for men.

As for the Queen – who knows? Everything that I have seen of her, though, in both public and private life, indicates a woman with a very strong sense of morality and an extremely powerful devotion to her duty to her people and culture. She was the last bastion of a culture that has now died with her – one that the British people could be proud of, because it shaped and defined them as the world’s greatest nation.

That is gone. And her country is greatly diminished by its passing.

Of course, if you are a Republican – here I am referring to those rather mad characters that festoon much of the British Commonwealth and want to ditch the Queen’s (well, King’s, now) head from their money, not the wussified cuckservatives that keep preventing progressive mistakes from being corrected in the USA – then you probably don’t much like the monarchy. So, here’s one for you:

The Mighty God-Emperor

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, had some very kind things to say upon the passing of Her Majesty:

The God-Emperor, of course, greatly admired Britain and its monarch, because of his mother’s influence – and rightly so. But, again, the Britain that he refers to is long gone.

Dawn of Battle

The Male Brain is back with a true buttload – that’s an actual unit of measure, for all you uneducated heathens – of great content to keep us all amused and thinking on a day that is good for neither amusement nor thought. We start with a video from new channel Kallmekris about how girls actually think during their first dates:

Yes, they are every bit as nuts as you thought.

WION‘s flagship Gravitas Plus show unpacks the sheer idiocy of Europe’s “energy policy”, which looks like it was put together by a bunch of poop-flinging monkeys armed with typewriters and cocaine-laced bananas:

There I Ruined It goes and ruins The Life of Brian by handing over its signature song to the Norks:

Dave Cullen can’t wait for the greatest saying of our time to come true:

Sydney Watson also hates the M-She-U, and with good reason:

Ryan Long explains what crypto traders are thinking at the moment:

Sorelle Amore Finance gets quite a few things wrong about China, but when it comes to the sheer stupidity of “Net Zero”, she’s absolutely right:

You don’t have to be an Intellectual-Yet-Idiot to watch a TED Talk – the rest of us can learn a few things from some of their better talks too:

John Stossel explains how Leftists distort reality for the sake of their own crazy agenda:

Poli-ticking Off

Mark Dice points out the obvious truth of the Left’s anti-White agenda:

China Uncensored notes that the CCP’s zero-WuFlu policies are literally killing people who could otherwise have survived natural disaster:

New channel (well, new to us) Digging to China unpacks the ways in which China uses debt-trap diplomacy to expand its sphere of influence:

As I have said many times, the CCP is simply doing what the West did for decades, only better. That is not a justification for what the CCP is doing – but it also does not change my opinion that the CCP is far less dangerous to national sovereignty and individual liberty outside of China than the Empire of Lies is.

The dynamic duo over at Redacted looks at a trove of data coming out of Israel with respect to the not-vaxxes and their side effects, and the news is bad – VERY bad:

Jackson Hinkle unpacks the Neo-Tsar’s very confident speech at the Eastern Economic Forum last week:

Дед Сварливый Говорит!

Grandpa Grumpuss grumps, extremely grumpily, about the sturm und drang surrounding Ukraine’s Kharkov Khounteroffensive:

It’s All Greek To Us

The gentlemen of The Duran did not one, but TWO, superb livestreams this week. The first was with Larry Johnson and John Paul Mac Isaac – the guy who had the burden and the fortune to begin the snowball that has become the Laptop From Hell:

The second was with the great Dr. Steve Turley:

The Bald Truth

Brian Berletic of The New Atlas offers a sober analysis of the likely true costs of the Khreat Kharkov Khounteroffensive:

The Marine’s Marine

None other than Maj. Scott Ritter himself managed to interview one of the military leaders of the LDNR militias – Alexander Khodakovsky, once a member of the SBU’s (Ukrainian internal security service, a very nasty bunch of scum and vermin) Alpha special unit, now the commander of the Donetsk People’s Republic’s elite “Vostok” battalion:

Khodakovsky is well known to Russian audiences. He succeeded Igor “Strelkov” Girkin as the leader of the “Vostok” grouping, after Strelkov proved to be too much of a pain in the arse for the other militia commanders and the Russians to work with. Since then, the boys of “Vostok”, like their counterparts of the similarly elite “Sparta” and “Somalia” battalions, have covered themselves in honour and glory – and in the blood of their enemies, and their brothers.

It is upon the shoulders of men like Khodakovsky that the defence of the LDNR will rest. That is a heavy burden indeed. Yet he seems to carry it easily enough. A strong man for hard times, to be sure.

Righteous Rantery

The inimitable, irreplaceable Katie Hopkins is on the road, celebrating the hard work of small business owners everywhere in PommieBastardLande who are fighting to stay afloat in the midst of a worsening economic crisis:

PJW is sick of SIMPs, and isn’t afraid to tell people so:

Clearly, sex sells.

Also, is anyone particularly surprised to learn that the founder of OnlySimps is a Ukrop?

Dr. John Campbell wants to know what the heck is causing all of those excess deaths in the UK:

I have only one response to that:

Warriors of Faith

The Dizzle is BACK on TEH YOOTOBZ!!! and explains why Mikhaila Peterson – daughter of the Crazy Christ, but that’s not her fault – is afraid to discuss only ONE subject:

Dr. Jay Smith from PfanderFilms and Hatun Tash explain how the original skeletal text of the Koran has been warped and twisted into a multitude of different texts – which puts the lie to the Izzlamist dogma that there has only ever been ONE KORAN:

Al-Fadi from CIRA International and Rob Christian unpack the error-strewn text of the Koran and point out what Muzzies would rather refuse to see:

Manly Men of Manliness

Terrence Popp talks about forgiveness and vengeance – topics upon which he has some rather unusual insights, due to his own life experiences:

Joker from Better Bachelor is unimpressed, to say the least, by Lolo Jones‘s latest round of self-pitying complaints:

I commend Ms Jones for preserving her V-card. Good for her. The problem is that her standards are so idiotically high that she will almost certainly die an old maid.

At the age of 40, she can’t afford to be choosy. She needs to find a reasonably high-status somewhat boring Beta who will put a ring on her, get herself porked at last, and settle down to enjoy her life with a husband that she can be pretty sure will stay faithful to her.

(This would have the substantial added and very happy benefit of sparing the rest of us from her solipsistic whining, forever. I think His Hugeness would approve.)

Instead, she’s wasting her time and life chasing after every guy that gives her the good ol’ gina-tingles, and then she wonders why they never want to commit to her.

Burn Paedowood to the Ground

Midnight’s Edge explains how and why Amazog is desperately trying to hide the absolutely EPIC failure of DEM RANGZ O’ POWAH!!!:

Overlord Dicktor Van Doomcock is shocked that anyone would actually be STUPID enough to throw good money away on another Star Trek movie:

Gary from Nerdrotic didn’t much like House of the Dragon, but at least it wasn’t as bad as DEM RANGZ!!!:

Ryan Kinel is delighted to see Brie Larson achieve some self-realisation and humility – well, sort of:

The Drinker set himself the near-impossible task of fixing a Marvel Phase Bore film while completely and totally shitfaced:

Reading Too Much Into Things

Your “Science is F***ING WEIRD” moment of the week is from Dawn Pine and looks at how strategic cooperation between dolphins leads to enhanced mating opportunities – which is to say, dolphins engage in wingman tactics too:

Efforts to understand human social evolution rely largely on comparisons with nonhuman primates. However, a population of bottlenose dolphins in Shark Bay, Western Australia, combines a chimpanzee-like fission-fusion grouping pattern, mating system, and life history with the only nonhuman example of strategic multilevel male alliances. Unrelated male dolphins form three alliance levels, or “orders”, in competition over females: both within-group alliances (i.e., first- and second-order) and between-group alliances (third-order), based on cooperation between two or more second-order alliances against other groups. Both sexes navigate an open society with a continuous mosaic of overlapping home ranges. Here, we use comprehensive association and consortship data to examine fine-scale alliance relationships among 121 adult males. This analysis reveals the largest nonhuman alliance network known, with highly differentiated relationships among individuals. Each male is connected, directly or indirectly, to every other male, including direct connections with adult males outside of their three-level alliance network. We further show that the duration with which males consort females is dependent upon being well connected with third-order allies, independently of the effect of their second-order alliance connections, i.e., alliances between groups increase access to a contested resource, thereby increasing reproductive success. Models of human social evolution traditionally link intergroup alliances to other divergent human traits, such as pair bonds, but our study reveals that intergroup male alliances can arise directly from a chimpanzee-like, promiscuous mating system without one-male units, pair bonds, or male parental care.

Your long read of the week is also from The Male Brain, and consists of a piece by Robert Pondiscio for Commentary magazine about how schoolchildren are NOT the property of the state, and therefore cannot simply be indoctrinated at will:

Public education accounts for one-third of all state and local government spending, but it is rare for public-school teachers to conceive of themselves consciously as a state actor or authority. This self-conception is not a recent phenomenon or a fashionable manifestation of “wokeness.” For at least three decades, a prominent strain of teacher education and preparation has expected teachers to be “professional educators as well as activists committed to diminishing the inequities of American society,” according to an authoritative 2005 report from the American Educational Research Association. At the same time, while teachers are generally encouraged to cultivate good relationships with parents (a robust body of research links active parental engagement in a child’s education with improved academic outcomes), a 2018 poll of teachers showed that only 36 percent expressed “complete” or “a lot of” trust in parents—below the level of confidence they expressed in their principal, students, union leadership, and other education stakeholders.

Collectively, these factors and impulses ripen conditions for teachers and other public-school staffers to feel not just comfortable but justified substituting their judgment and preference for those of parents, and to do so unabashedly. Examples abound on social media. In April, the Twitter account “Libs of TikTok” shared a video posted by an Oklahoma teacher who declared, “If your parents don’t accept you for who you are, f—k them. I’m your parents now.” An Oakland, California, teacher posted a video describing his school’s “transition closet” for transgender students: “The goal of the transition closet is for our students to wear the clothes that their parents approve of, come to school, and then swap out into the clothes that fit who they truly are.”

With nearly 3.7 million teachers in U.S. classrooms, we should not assume that videos posted on social media are representative of the profession at large. But neither should it be quite so easy to find daily examples of teachers so clearly exceeding their authority without compunction. If you see yourself clearly as a state agent with coercive power over a captive audience of impressionable children, you are unlikely to grant yourself permission to behave like the AP government teacher caught on camera by Project Veritas admitting he wants his students to take up arms against the state. “I have 180 days to turn [students] into revolutionaries…to scare the f—k out of them,” said Gabriel Gipe, who hung an Antifa banner in his California classroom. Another teacher took to social media to describe how she removed the American flag from her classroom because “it made me uncomfortable.” When a student asked which flag they should pledge allegiance to, she pointed to the Gay Pride flag, which still hung on the wall.

The core message remains, as ever: homeschool or die.

We start with a menagerie of memes from our good friend Dawn Pine:

Yes, I want to see what happens next
Beta game at it’s best – 2022 edition

Three pictures that perfectly explain Leftist “lodjik”:

Give it another month and will have some more bullet points

Your “Periodic Madness” moment of the week:

Your “Kids LITERALLY Eat Your Brain” moment of the week:

And just to balance that out, your “Kids Are GOOD For Your Mental Health” moment of the week:

See, this is why men like me think that pumping your wife full of kids, and lots of them, is a VERY Good Thing. Not only is it immensely good fun – or at least, it should be, when done right – but it leads to happier people in the long run.

Your “Walter White School of Proper Corpse Disposal” moment of the week:

Let’s watch The Buakawminator destroy people in full HD:

Buakaw kicks hard enough to knock the not-vaxx straight out of you.

This may be a useful solution to the problem of Sudden Unexplained Not-Vaxx Deaths (SUNVD).

The tiny little wrinkle with this cunning plan is that… well, you’d have to eat a kick from BUAKAW.

Honestly, a heart attack would probably be less painful.

The American Gangster

I dunno about y’all, but I have to say, AMARANTHE has gotten pretty boring and stale since their second album…

Rock Out With Your Glock Out

When you absolutely positively have to defend Leningrad right after your date

Hot Totty

We close as always with the Instathot to get the week off to a suitably inglorious start. This is Ilona Koronets, which is assuredly not her real name, age 27 from the great Russian city of Chelyabinsk in the Urals. She apparently graduated from the St. Petersburg State Institute, doing… something, and now is a “fitness model” and all-around influenza on Instaham.

She looks quite a lot older than she actually is, which suggests… well, nothing good, let’s be honest.

Right, gents, stop drooling and get back to work, those 87,000 IRS agents over in the USSA need something to pillage and pilfer at gunpoint, after all…

    The first three books in Black Library’s Horus Heresy series (Horus Rising, False Gods, Galaxy in Flames) are not only excellent 40K books, but excellent sci-fi books, period. You’d never expect the backstory of a game about painted dolls fighting to not only be profound, but moving as well. Highly, highly recommended.

    It’s a shame that BL decided to drown that series in so many pointless spinoffs that I completely lost interest.

    • Didact

      100% agreed – I’ve read those books as well, they are very good. But there is a LOT of dreck within the expanded universe literature.
