“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 Blackbird breakdown

by | Nov 21, 2022 | Mondays | 3 comments

Ah, Monday, our great nemesis – we meet again. Around my patch, the weather is cold and grey and thoroughly depressing – it IS winter, after all – though if you are in more southern climes, at least you get more summery weather. Unfortunately, that is not the case for many of us, and that just makes today all the more dreary.

Fortunately, of course, that is why the Great Mondaydact Browser Splitter is here – to make the day pass a lot faster by wasting as much of your time as possible.

However, we are also all about learning and wisdom here. And few things are more interesting to learn about than the greatest aircraft ever built – the SR-71 Blackbird.

Everything about this aircraft is genuinely staggering. It was, and remains, easily the greatest aircraft ever to fly, from any nation. There was a time when America could actually build things like this – those days, sadly, appear to be long gone. No one created anything quite like it before – and no one, save for the Russians with their incredible MiG-25 and MiG-31 super-heavy interceptors, has ever created anything anywhere close to it since.

I’ve always been fascinated by this incredible machine. Back when I were a wee lad, I had a chance to visit the Intrepid Museum in New York City – this was when it was still actually a respectable place, and the Twin Towers were still standing – and my folks bought me a to-scale black solid metal SR-71 model with landing gear that folded in.

I STILL have it. I can’t remember whether it is at home at my parents’ house, or in storage and being shipped over to me, but that little toy is one of the few things that I have kept from my childhood, and it is still one of my most valuable possessions.

The sheer balls-out brilliance of the SR-71 was only possible through the use of the miracle metal known as titanium – stronger than steel, but extremely brittle:

True story: the chemical properties of titanium required the Lockheed engineers to come up with all sorts of new machining techniques and tools that have since been largely lost. For example, a Lockheed engineer once tried to draw on a sheet of titanium with a pen – only to find, to his horror, that the ink ate through the metal like acid. They had to create special inks just to draw designs on the titanium for their engineers to work with. They had to coat their wrenches and spanners with special materials just to shape the titanium.

And they had to get the titanium from the world’s largest exporter – RUSSIA. Keep in mind, this was in the 1960s, during the height of the Cold War. The USSR wasn’t in the least bit interested in exporting titanium to the damned capitalist imperialist AMERICANS, of course.

So the Yankees had to improvise.

They did it by resorting to a series of shell companies that allowed the CIA and Lockheed to import the necessary quantities of titanium directly to the USA, where it was then used to craft the greatest spyplane ever built, which then took amazing high-quality pictures of Soviet naval and military facilities all over the country.

Everything about this plane was staggering, amazing, incredible. You can find the details in a book that I cannot recommend strongly enough – Skunk Works by Ben Rich and Leo Janos. I’ve read and re-read it many times, and it truly is a blockbuster history of the Skunk Works and what they achieved.

The engineering brilliance of this plane goes far beyond the shape and the materials. The BIBLICAL levels of power achieved by it were only possible through very special engines:

One of the guys who flew the SR-71, Brian Shul, features in that book I mentioned above. He tells a story about the speed run that he made with his backseater one day, flying near LA – and you HAVE to hear it to appreciate it fully:

The plane was so amazing, so great, that the Greateste Livinge Englisheman, Clarksonius hizzelf, made a special about it some years back:

I’ll leave off with a story from the book about the day that the SR-71 was retired for good, back in 1999 from Edwards AFB. During the final approach before landing, the pilot rocketed Habu up into a steep climb and rocked the wings as a sign of respect for the air crews, engineers, and pilots who maintained, built, and flew the most amazing aircraft ever created.

Grown men wept that day.


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, is back on Twatter:

I am on record as saying that the God-Emperor’s second tilt at the Presidency is a terrible idea. I also think that putting the God-Emperor back on Twatter is not going to do much of anything, because Trump has fiduciary and financial duties to his investors to ensure that his own network, Truth Social, is his primary platform. This is symbolic, nothing more.

We must also keep in mind that Brolon is nothing more than a shill for one of the factions of the ongoing globalist Deep State Civil War. He is not on our side. He does not believe in the Good, the Beautiful, and the True. Nor does he bend the knee and bow the head to Christ our Lord and King. This man is NOT to be trusted.

Dawn of Battle

The Male Brain has been very busy this week, compiling great stuff for the rest of us to use as palliative treatment on a Monday. We start with the world’s busiest bald dude, going through some of the absolute worst geekery of all time:

Joma Tech explains what happens when you try to rob a tech company:

Yep. Can confirm. That is very much what it is like to work at AMEX, for example.

Normally we here at Didactic Mind think that presstitutes should be hung, drawn, and quartered, if not shot outright – or, in our more delirious moments, subjected to acid baths – but sometimes they DO come up with somewhat interesting and unusual stories:

John Stossel continues to unpack all of the reasons – and there are MANY – why electric cars are a really dumb idea:


Poli-ticking Off

Mark Dice notes that Mike Pence is in fact a cuckservative of the worst kind:


The dynamic duo over at Redacted have been stuck in the Goolag for the past week, because of TEH YOOTOOBZ’s ridiculous content moderation policies, but that has not stopped them from continuing to do great work over on Rumble. Here, they dig into the dark and sordid connections between (((Sam Blankman-Fried))), FTX, and Banderastan’s money-laundering operation on behalf of the Daemoncrats:


Jackson Hinkle is greatly amused by the way in which the Cokehead-in-Chief, running Banderastan ever-deeper into the ground, got a serious ticking-off from the braindead zombie running Amerikhastan into the ground:


Jacob Dreizin has absolutely no patience for Republicucks now crying about fraud in the 2022 midterms, given that they didn’t do ONE DAMNED THING to stop it or fix the very clear problems created in the stolen 2020 election:


Дед Сварливый Говорит!

Grandpa Grumpuss grumps, grumpily, about the manner in which events are speeding up and heading toward a significant culminating point:


It’s All Greek To Us

The good gentlemen of The Duran examine the impending failure of the G20, as the world rapidly realigns toward the BRICS+ and SCO:


China Syndrome

China Uncensored thinks that Xi Jinping is not nearly as secure in his position as he would like the rest of the world to believe – I strongly disagree, but hey, that’s their opinion:


Winston Sterzel aka serpentza has nothing kind to say about China’s 5G network:


Digging to China reckons that the CPC is failing in its promises to keep government employees safe and secure in their jobs:


The Bald Truth

Brian Berletic of The New Atlas analyses the effects of the continuing Russian missile strikes on Ukrainian power networks, and concludes that the complete collapse of Ukraine’s economy is not far off – he also looks at the Ukrainian attack on a Polish tractor, and what that means:


Semper Fi!

Maj. Scott Ritter spoke with Ania from Through the Eyes of about the really dumb failed false flag that the hohols tried to pull in Poland with their ridiculous “Russian” missile attack:


Warrior’s Rage

Col. Douglas Macgregor, in an appearance on Judge Andrew Napolitano‘s show, has no patience whatsoever for Gen. Mark Milley‘s bloviating about freezing the lines – because the Russians have made their intentions absolutely clear:


Righteous Rantery

Lord Razor of the Fist Clan breaks down the severe disappointment (for Republicucks) of the Red Ripple:


PJW points out that not-vaxx passports and certificates have not gone away, at all, even though the Neo-Tsar singlehandedly ended the Scamdemic – they are coming back with a vengeance, and the Asians are the ones leading the idiotic blind charge into this hellscape:


Bad Medicine

Dr. John Campbell examines a truly safe and effective prophylactic treatment against the Coof, and many other respiratory viruses – 4000 IU of Vitamin D3, along with decent doses of Vitamin K to keep the calcium in your bones:


Warriors of Faith

Tha Dizzle demolishes the ridiculous “perfect preservation” myth of Izzlam just by looking at a single page of a Koran manuscript:


Hatun Tash, the Lioness of London, and her friend Daughter of Christ, have a great deal of fun comparing and contrasting Andrew Tater Salad‘s statements about his “newfound” faith, and the words of the founder of that faith, Mo’Lester – and, inevitably, it turns out that Tater actually understand Izzlam better than most of its public proponents:


Dr. Jay Smith from PfanderFilms summarises the Book-Man-Place line of historical analysis of Izzlam, and shows neatly how it all fits together to destroy the entire absurd mythology of the Fake Religion of Peace:


Al-Fadi from CIRA International and Lloyd De Jongh show how shariah actually COMMANDS Izzlamists to be assholes:


Manly Men of Manliness

Terrence Popp lets rip on the increasingly trendy, and idiotic, idea of women freezing their eggs and focusing on their careers – it DOES NOT WORK, the facts of biology are immutable:


Joker from Better Bachelor takes apart yet another fantasy from Jana Hocking, every red-piller’s favourite Australian hot mess, who now feels “burned out” after banging her way through dozens of dudes and miles of cock:


Burn Paedowood to the Ground

Midnight’s Edge points out the wages of woke for Netherflix, after Henry Cavill – who is very much one of us – left The Witcher over his severe annoyance at the stupidity of the writing staff:

Also, can we just say – Michelle Yeoh hit the Wall REALLY FREAKIN’ HARD. Though, of course, she is over 50, so it’s not that surprising – this happens to attractive Asian women, they age really well up until their mid-to-late-forties and then WHAM!!! Just compare what she looked like in 1997’s Tomorrow Never Dies to get an idea of just how big a change it was.


Overlord Dicktor Van Doomcock looks into the rumours behind the supposed “multiple endings” of Indy 5, which one way or another is going to be a disaster:


Gary from Nerdrotic is thoroughly unimpressed, but greatly amused, by Wokeanda Furreber:


Ryan Kinel does some MAFF and concludes that Wokeanda Furreber is BONED:


The Drinker watches the new Black Pander movie so that you don’t have to:


Reading Too Much Into Things

Your “Science is F***ING WEIRD” moment of the week is about the James Webb telescope, which now has images of the oldest galaxy yet discovered:

NASA‘s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has opened the doors to a new chapter in astronomy with the discovery of a galaxy that formed just 350 million years after the Big Bang – making it the farthest starlight ever seen by human eyes.

This galaxy, which was identified along with another that appeared 450 million years after the Big Bang, is exceptionally bright and suggests it came together just 100 million years after the event that sparked the universe 13.8 billion years ago. 

Both systems of stars appear in the image as faint orange specks in the blackness of space and are only visible now because of JWST’s powerful ability to look back in time with its infrared camera.

The team, led by the National Institute for Astrophysics in Rome, Italy, said the discovery is like an ‘undiscovered country’ of early galaxies that have been hidden until now.


Your long read of the week is by Thomas Dalton, and points out that the only way forward for the USSA to become less corrupt and insane, is for secession and breakup:

What about election fraud? Was this election, too, “stolen”? I must admit that I have yet to see compelling evidence for fraud in 2020, but I remain open to the possibility. And there are already hints of problems now in 2022, but it remains to be seen if these amount to enough to account for the difference in outcomes. Also, as Tucker Carlson has pointed out, it is highly suspicious that, of the longest-delayed results, Democrats seem to win most of the time—the figure he cited was 77%. It’s almost like, “Keep counting until the Dem is ahead, and then stop.” Again, we’ll see where the longest-delayed and closest races shake out this time. But the example of the Senate is not encouraging. Of eight tight races there, Dems won four, Reps won three, and Georgia is in a runoff, almost certainly to go Democrat. That will give Dems five of eight (63%) close races in a national environment that was supposedly pro-Republican.

But my main takeaway from the current situation is this: Whether there was fraud or not, either way, the outcome is very bad. If there was sufficient fraud to tip the outcomes, then the system obviously has zero credibility and something approaching a revolution is immediately required. On the other hand, if all reported votes are legitimate, then that tells us that far too many people were willing to reward the current administration; that they are not terribly upset about record inflation caused, in part, by record federal spending; that they don’t mind funding wars in Europe; that they were not all that concerned with the Covid fiasco that allegedly killed over 1 million Americans and destroyed thousands of small businesses. (Republican candidates should have repeated over and over: “vaccine mandates,” “mask mandates,” “shutdowns,” “school closures,” “Anthony Fauci,” “Rochelle Walensky,” etc., etc. Remember those?) In short, either we have (1) a fraudulent democracy that is literally worthless, or (2) an electorate so bamboozled by the Jewish media machine—and Jewish porn, and Jewish legalized pot—that they can hardly think straight. Both alternatives are bad news indeed.

The bit of good news, again, is that a strong majority of Whites (58%) could see through the nonsense and propaganda. This is certainly cause for hope. But even at that, a Republican vote was really nothing more than “sending a message.” Even with a true Red Wave, even with a Republican House and Senate, virtually nothing was going to change anyway—partly because of Biden, but mostly because the same corrupting forces hold sway in both parties.

As we know, Jewish donors are dominant funders of both parties. One recent Jewish study admits that “Jews donate as much as 50 percent of the funds raised by Democrats and 25 percent of the funds raised by Republicans.” Other sources give higher estimates.[1] But even these figures are appalling. Think of it: Of the hundreds of lobbies and special interests out there, a quarter to a half or more of all campaign funds come from a single lobby: the Jewish Lobby. Guess who calls the shots. Politicians just don’t pass on that kind of money because, quite obviously, they understand that they can’t be elected by alienating Jewish money. The Democrats are totally and completely sold to the Jews, and the Republicans are only slightly less sold-out. No matter who won, the Jews win—and Whites lose.

That is the definition of a rigged system: a small, wealthy, corrupt minority wins out over a large majority of the people. Until that changes, nothing of substance will change. Even if Trump or DeSantis miraculously wins in 2024, nothing of substance will change. In fact, the Jews love nothing more than masses of people getting all worked up about “Democrats versus Republicans” or “Trump versus Biden” or “pro-life versus pro-choice” or “pro and con LGBT rights.” Such issues are wonderful distractions. They take everyone’s eyes off the ball—the Jewish ball—and put them on relatively trivial side issues. The main issue, and the only issue that really matters at this point, is: How will a given candidate address the Jewish dominance and Jewish corruption of our nation? At every town hall, at every candidate panel and forum, people should be hammering away at their candidates: What will you do to stop the Jewish Lobby? Virtually nothing else matters at this point. And how often did that question come up in the 2022 cycle? Case closed.

As it is, the situation is hopelessly corrupt. The system has completely failed. ‘Representative democracy’ is utterly discredited and worthless. ‘America’ as a functional nation is dead. The lowest and most pernicious criminals hold sway at the top, and the nation drowns in Democrat-voting Third-World immigrants at the bottom. Which party holds the Senate or House is irrelevant. With anything short of revolutionary action, the nation will sink ever further into the abyss: economic decline, rising crime, moral degradation at every turn—a wonderful future for your children and grandchildren.

ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, civil war is absolutely inevitable.

OK, back to work, gents, show’s over.

Oh hey, I can’t resist this next one. Y’all remember this meme?

Guess where that came from:

So really, that meme should be called “Iren and Dasha”. Jus’ sayin’, whorenalistic accuracy is very important.

    To add insult to injury with the SR-71; it was designed by men with pocket protectors and slide rules working under a genius named Kelly Johnson – who birthed some totally incredible and iconic aircraft. If you have a chance, read the book ‘skunk works’ by his protege Ben R. Rich. It wasn’t until the F-117 that they started using computer modeling. And the original concept for that was hammered out by a dude with a slide rule that read a Russian paper on the subject (that was ignored by the commies).

    Warn’t no wimmens of color doing the mafs for these guys, no matter what hollywood says.

      Ayup. Read it – many times – and referenced it above.

      Kelly was just an incredible talent – he was one of those guys who had this intuitive feel for engineering, a true genius and a titan of his time.

      The Russian paper was from Pytor Ufimtsev – something about light wave diffraction and refraction around convex and concave surfaces. There’s even an anecdote in the book about the time that Ben Rich tried to sell the US Navy on a “stealth ship”, which went nowhere fast because the US Navy doesn’t do innovation very well these days.

      Today the Navy is tying itself into knots trying to figure out how to float the supposedly “stealthy” LCS and Zumwalt designs. That hasn’t worked out so well…

    I thought you might be interested, I watched the movie ‘spirited’ last night, with Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrel.

    First off, it was definitely not a children’s movie. At first it feels like a ‘deconstruction’ of Dicken’s Christmas Carol movie, but eventually you realize it’s not… It’s more like a’Christmas Carol 2′ handled in a surprisingly intelligent way.

    Secondly, it was packed with woke memes… except the memes were clearly obligatory, and were made so ridiculous that they were actually joke tropes. A slutty, retarded HR rep, Ryan Reynolds supposedly boning a goofy and amazingly ugly little indian girl as ‘the ghost of chirstmas past’, Will Ferrel’s supposed fascination to a 600 pound dumpling of color, and a hilariously unexplained Asian Jacob Marley, as well as glossing over the ‘mandatory’ woke bits like his sister’s social inadequacy.

    Also, a black death… so incredibly, obviously black that it became a running gag.

    There was also a lot of interesting subtext. An obviously Christian Purgatory being the home of the ghosts, with the pagan ‘rebirth’ meme getting buried under subtley Christian themes of heaven.

    Theres a LOT of over-the-top musical stuff going on, to the point it becomes a joke (The asian Jacob Marley nods to ‘monty python and the holy grail’ jokes) And a few extremely red-pilled messages, such as redemption requiring constant effort and not occuring overnight, and honorable sacrifice being meaningless without actually paying a price. A few Karen jokes also that actually understood what a Karen really is instead of the leftist rebranding of Karen.

    Honestly, the whole thing feels like it was written by red-pills who were forced to add ‘woke’ and did it in the most sarcastic manner possible. I quite liked it.

    Not to mention, there was a number in the middle of the movie, ‘Good Afternoon’ about the joy of humiliating and insulting other people that was amusing as heck.

    In short, if someone has the IQ of a cabbage, it looks like a straightforward Hell-wood cultural deconstruction, but if you are smart enough to peel off a few layers, it’s a lot more like a deconstruction of idiot Hell-wood wokeness and atheism.

    I recommend it strongly for Didact’s reach readers, but to be fair, some of the redpilled reviewers who aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer might pan it for the surface appearance.
