“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 dreamchasing

Ah, Monday. Here we go again. The weekend went by way too damn fast – I’m actually shocked at how fast it zipped by, but then, I was sick for quite a lot of it. I won’t horrify you with the details, but let us just say that it was very unpleasant. Nonetheless, I managed to recover, mostly, by yesterday evening, and today I’m back at fighting strength.

So let us push forward with the Great Mondaydact Browser Crusher and get over this horrid day.

This Monday, in particular, is Martin Luther King Day in Amerikhastan, which means a day off to celebrate the life and times of a great man who fought hard for equal rights for Blacks in America. And that is all good and we are all good and everyone is good and it is good, because Dr. King was the ideal embodiment of all of the great things about conservatism and everything that Burkean and Kirkean conservatives stood for.

Right?

Well… not quite:

Mention the fact that King may have plagiarized as much as 40 % of his Boston University Ph.D. dissertation [cf. Theodore Pappas, Plagiarism and the Culture War: The Writings of Martin Luther King, Jr, and Other Prominent Americans, 1998, and Martin Luther King Jr Plagiarism Story1994, if they are have not been scrubbed from circulation], or that he worked closely with known Communists throughout his life, or that he advocated American defeat in Vietnam while praising Ho Chi Minh, or that he implicitly countenanced violence and Marxism, especially later in his life [cf., Congressional Record, 129, no. 130 (October 3, 1983): S13452-S13461]—mention any of these accusations confirmed begrudgingly by his establishment biographers David Garrow and Taylor Branch, or mention his even-by-current-standards violent “rough sex” escapades (which apparently involved even under-agers) [cf., Cooper Sterling, January 13, 2018, VDare] and you immediately get labeled a “racist” and condemned by not just the zealous King flame-keepers on the Left, but by such “racially acceptable” conservatives like Rich Lowry and Dinesh D’Souza who supposedly are on the Right.

Indeed, in some ways Establishment “conservatives” such as Lowry (National Review), D’Souza, Glenn Beck, the talking heads on Fox and the furious scribblers at nearly all major “conservative” journals, and many others, not only eagerly buy into this narrative, they now have converted King into a full-fledged, card-carrying member of “conservatism inc.”—a “plaster saint” iconized as literally no one else in our history. Thus, this latest attempt to “scrub” clean Russell Kirk so that he, too, can join the new holy pantheon…finally, it simply had to happen.

Celebrating King becomes a means for the modern “conservative” movement to demonstrate its “civil rights” and “egalitarian” bona fides. When the Neoconservatives made their pilgrimage from the Trotskyite Left into the ranks of conservatism in the 1960s and 1970s, they brought with them a fervent believe in a globalist New World Order egalitarianism that characterized their Trotskyite ideology, and the determination to redefine and re-orient the traditional American Rightwing, and to re-write, as well, American history.

Thus, the purges of the old conservative movement in the 1980s and 1990s—there was no room for Southern conservatives like Mel Bradford, no room for traditionalist Catholics like Frederick Wilhelmsen or Brent Bozell Sr., no room for paleo-libertarians like Murray Rothbard, no room for Old Right anti-egalitarians like Paul Gottfried, and no room for “America Firsters” like Pat Buchanan…. These figures did not believe in King’s (and Lincoln’s) “promise of equality,” and thus were no doubt scarred by latent or real racism.

King Day becomes, then, for the modern Conservative Movement an opportunity for it to beat its chest, brag about its commitment to civil rights and “the American dream, the unrealized idea of equality” (that is, to distort and re-write the history of the American Founding), and to protect its left flank against the ever increasing charges that it could be, just might be, maybe is —“racist.”

In case you are wondering about Dr. King’s Communist leanings:

And it gets rather worse than that. Dr. King was hardly a paragon of moral sobriety and fidelity to his wife. Nor was he any sort of “conservative”, at all.

But what, exactly, has his legacy achieved? VDARE answers that question with a LONG list, and it is ugly.

Now, to be very clear, NO ONE sensible argues for the resumption of forced segregation of Blacks and Whites. But, if we are intellectually honest with ourselves and others, we need to acknowledge that voluntary segregation is not only justified by now, it is necessary. Black America has essentially refused to become part of the rest of the country in the nearly 60 years since MLK’s speech, and that “dream” is farther away now than it ever was before.

Dawn of Battle

The Male Brain has a lot of good stuff for us this week. We start with a video from our man in the field, Joker from Better Bachelor, which really demonstrates just what a sewer the Western legal system has become:

Says it all, really.

Moon breaks down the hidden warnings inside Blade Runner – though I have to admit, this might depend on exactly which version of the film you watch:

The busiest bald YOOTOOBER in the world looks at the implications of recently declassified files on his Megaprojects channel:

Cracked rips the mask right off the healthcare industry:

Big Think discusses the reality of male inequality:


Poli-ticking Off

Mark Dice thinks the RINOs doth protesteth too much:

Eyepatch McCain, in particular, has been a severe disappointment. I don’t care if he was a Navy SEAL in the past – he is merely a cuckservative, and a warmongering one, at that.


The dynamic duo over at Redacted go into the details of a very simple tweet that got not-vaxx sceptic Limey MP Andrew Bridgen YEETED out of his own parliamentary party’s voting rolls:

Note how desperate the global uniparty is becoming. The truth is breaking through, and they are horrified by the implications.

The important question, though, is:

Why is this happening now, exactly?

Or, more generally – which faction of the globalist Deep State benefits from these not-vaxx harm disclosures?

Answer that, and you will quickly understand their plan to introduce something much worse in the near future.


Jackson Hinkle is thoroughly unimpressed by a “former” CIA spook’s lies on Toe Rogan‘s podcast:

If you watch that podcast interview, or Jackson’s breakdown of it, and then you look at what people like me are saying, based on the actual data on the ground, you will realise very quickly why the USSA suffers from such BIBLICAL intelligence failures so frequently.


History Legends looks at the incoming APC and tank deliveries from the West to the 404th UkReich, and what they imply for the war (spoiler: not a whole lot):


Дед Сварливый Говорит!

Grandpa Grumpuss grumps, grumpily, in his “I BLOODY TOLD YOU SO!!!” moment about the return of industrialised warfare:


It’s All Greek To Us

The good gentlemen of The Duran did an outstanding livestream with Larry Johnson last week, discussing the collapse of Ukrainian defences in Soledar and the implications for the wider Bakhmut/Donbass theatre:


China Syndrome

China Uncensored thinks old Ferdinand Marcos‘s kid is “caving” to the CPC:

I do not like or trust the CPC, but an objective analysis of their approach to the world will show you very quickly that, unlike the Evil Empire, they do not demand other nations bow down to them or adopt their ideology.

You cannot trust the CPC, at all, because you cannot trust the Chinese, in general. They will always look for a way to screw you – they come from a low-trust culture. But they are there to do business, and, within the rules of business, they will generally leave you be.

Is it any surprise, then, that Asian nations are increasingly turning toward the strong horse in the region, and not the flailing, dying empire across the Pacific?


Digging to China reckons the CPC is severely mismanaging the spread of the Coof:


The Bald Truth

Brian Berletic of The New Atlas looks at the implications of Western MBT deliveries to Banderastan, and is thoroughly unimpressed:


Semper Fi!

Maj. Scott Ritter explains that Russia has changed gears, and is now preparing for outright war, rather than the limited SMO it was fighting before:


Warrior’s Rage

Col. Douglas Macgregor breaks down the latest in the Banderastan War with Judge Andrew Napolitano:


Righteous Rantery

Konstantin Kisin put an absolute beatdown on woketards in his recent speech at the Oxford Union:

He gets a lot wrong about the nature of free speech – the evidence increasingly shows it was a hidden attack on Christianity and the church, couched as a freethinker’s movement. But, he is right about the simple realities of the world with respect to CO2 emissions.


Lord Razor of the Fist Clan does an superb analysis of the truth about Abraham Lincoln, America’s first actual dictator and assuredly not the great President that Republicucks insist he is:

This is particularly relevant today, on MLK Day in the USSA. The fact is, Lincoln wanted a state-controlled system in the US, and he wanted an American empire. He didn’t give a damn about Blacks and wanted them gone from the territory of the USA. He never freed so much as one slave with his Emancipation Proclamation, and signed off on every manner of evil and depredation by William Tecumseh Sherman in his March to the Sea.

In every respect, Lincoln was a tyrant, not a hero, and Blacks and Whites alike who revere him, pay homage to a completely false idol.


PJW explains what Davos is really all about:


The inimitable, irrepressible Katie Hopkins has a typically acerbic take on the rather silly comparisons between her and one Angelina Jolie:

Let’s put some pictures of Ms Hopkins and Ms Jolie in their respective primes up for comparison, just for shits and giggles:

Dr. John Campbell examines the highly infectious “Kraken” variant of the Coof, which apparently is spreading fast, but honestly I just could not care less:


Warriors of Faith

Hatun Tash, the Lioness of London, points out that dawahgandists themselves are some of the biggest hypocrites you’ve ever seen with respect to what their own teachings say:


Dr. Jay Smith from PfanderFilms points out the major problems with the Izzlamist timelines concerning Mecca:


Al-Fadi from CIRA International and Lloyd de Jongh explain how shariah defines itself (spoiler: not well):


Islam Critiqued explains “marriage” in Izzlam:

The reality is, as Christian Prince repeatedly points out, there is no such thing as “marriage” within the Fake Religion. It is all false and nonsense. If a man can divorce his wife simply by saying talak three times, and then can only remarry her after some other dude bangs her, that is a filthy and disgusting perversion – it is not marriage, at all.


And speaking of Christian Prince, he had rather a lot of fun knocking about a Moroccan who didn’t know what the hell he was talking about:

Reading Too Much Into Things

Your “Science is F***ING WEIRD” moment of the week concerns a fascinating application of quantum computing to crack previously unbreakable financial security protocols:

Currently, computers use a system called public key encryption to protect information — such as someone sending you a digital message.

In this your device — such as a mobile phone — has two keys, a public key and a private key.

The device trying to contact you uses your machine’s public key to encrypt a message, turning it into a ridiculously long number, reports Science.

This can then only be opened by your device’s private key, which unscrambles the message to reveal the original.

This is virtually unhackable for traditional computers, which would take about 300 trillion years to crack the code, Callan says, as they try all possibilities.

But experts fear quantum devices will be able to make short work of the encryption — which has been around since the 1970s — owing to their design.

While traditional machines use electronic or optical pulses that represent either a zero or a one, quantum machines use a photon — a particle of light — that can be set to 0, one, or both one and zero.

The flexibility of the new machines enables a quantum computer to code all possible solutions to an encryption, which will then cancel each other out to reveal the right combination.

Callan warned: ‘The evolution of quantum computers creates a significant threat to data security.

‘Their immense processing power is capable of breaking encryption at great speed, leaving important data vulnerable, everything from bank account details to medical records to state secrets. 


Your long read of the week is a classic article by Grandpa Grumpuss from back in December 2014, detailing the “doctrinal fog” surrounding Russia’s Navy at the time:

Russia’s regional and global aspirations remain strong and rest largely with the military. “The Strategy Of National Security of the Russian Federation” explicitly calls for transformation of Russia into a premier world power, capable of providing for “strategic stability in the multi-polar world.”1 One of the pillars of this transformation is the Russian navy or, to be more precise, the remnants of the Soviet navy—and that is precisely the problem. While the Kremlin still tries to think largely within the framework of Gorshkov’s fleet-operational capabilities, the realities of the current Russian navy, as well as of Russia itself, do not support such an approach. Those capabilities are long gone, and the sooner the Kremlin begins to face up to reality, the better it would play out for the navy in the near future. The events in Ukraine may provide the navy with a raison d’etre.

Reforms initiated by former Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov and the inability to define a mission remain major contributing factors in the Russian navy’s fight against the slide toward being a hollow force. An article by Otto Kreisher in the February 2010 issue of Seapower was sarcastically, and not completely improperly, titled “A Potemkin Navy?” Nowhere has this state of affairs manifested itself more profoundly than in the highly controversial deal to purchase French-built Mistral-class amphibious-assault ships—vessels that no one in Moscow is able to justify acquiring without causing resentment and suspicion of government corruption among naval and industry professionals. A public discussion in the Russian media about the fate of the navy still revolves around specific ships and technologies rather than around doctrine, and even top-level government bureaucrats state the case for the future Russian navy in terms of force structure, ignoring altogether the ultimate necessity to first formulate the mission for the navy and then develop the operational requirements from there.

Russia’s economic and geopolitical realities, especially against the backdrop of the Ukrainian crisis, call for immediate formulation of the mission for the Russian Navy as one of sea denial for the foreseeable future (say 20 to 30 years). At the height of its might, and with the industrial capacity much greater than that of today’s Russia behind it, Gorshkov’s Soviet navy was a dedicated global sea-denial force. While today’s Russia does not need nor can it even afford a fleet on that scale, it does need a strong green-water navy with a first-class submarine force.

Constant references to and comparisons with the carrier-centric U.S. Navy in the Russian media only underscore the scale of confusion.

Fast forward more than 8 years, and look at what has happened. The fog has dissipated, and the Russian Navy now understands its full purpose and strength. The Admiral Gorshkov frigate now sails the seas, armed with 3M22 Tsirkon hypersonic carrier-killers. The Russians will arm even missile boats with hypersonics eventually, which will render the entire American nuclear surface fleet completely impotent, because these can engage carriers at a range of 1,500-2,000Km, well out of range of any American ability to respond.

And that is before we get to the innovations the Russians have made with their submarine forces. They now have the Belgorod, capable of carrying the Status-6 “Poseidon” autonomous nuclear drone, which can destroy an entire carrier fleet, or wipe out the coastline of any country. They have new Yasen-class nuclear attack submarines, new ultra-silent diesel-electric Kilo-class submarines, new Borei-A-class and future Borei-B-class submarines, and the Belgorod.

This is a set of capabilities NO ONE else has, not even the Americans. It is a submarine and surface fleet capable of defending the Russian motherland, but which does not give Russia the ability to project force and power abroad – which suits Russia just fine. The Russians have deprioritised their SHTORM and Lamantin nuclear supercarrier projects (though their Varan design proposal seems really rather interesting), in favour of dramatically upgrading the strength and punching power of their frigates, cruisers, destroyers, and missile boats. They now understand Russia’s role as a land-fighting power (possibly the best in the world), with the Navy and Aerospace forces supplementing the Russian Army.

This shows a military that knows what it is about, led by people who understand Russia’s role in the world. The West, with its doctrinal incoherence and colossal strategic incompetence, should be very, very worried, because its ability to win a war of aggression against Russia is rapidly disappearing (if, indeed, it ever existed).

This week’s model is Alicia Parr, age 24 (supposedly), from Sydney, Australia. While she looks more-or-less-safe, remember, Down There, appearances can be extremely deceiving.

Right, lads, that’s all for today. Back to work – there are millions of Ukrainians depending on you to be their indirect sugar-daddies, after all.

    While it is WTFH to see a man have a silicone statue of his wife to live with him, I am very impressed he was able to do so for less then $3000. Excellent negotiation skills.

    It is strange watching these ONE fights and having the GLOBAL CITIZEN advertising all over the place. Why do they even bother with it at these fights?
