SPEAKING OF THE LEFT

    So, we came across another article the other day, illustrating the increasing dissociation from reality among the Left-Wing so-called 'Elites.' The American Psychological Association has come out with a new position paper on treating male patients.

   At first, the article looked fairly promising. The APA actually started out by recognizing some very real and unique issues afflicting American men. But sadly, it went downhill from there. The 'authorities' basically agreed that "traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful." They claim that masculine values "marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance, and aggression is, on the whole, harmful."

     These opinions, of course, are not based upon any actual solid scientific findings. The rest of the article is rife with pseudoscience and ahistorical mythologies. Examples are: "Prior to 1960's 2nd-Wave Feminism, all psychology was the psychology of men;" "Old psychologies left out people of color and women and conformed to gender-role stereotypes;" "Gender is no longer just this male-female binary;" and most absurd of all was a long paragraph on what they call 'John Henryism' which is a completely racist portrayal of Black men disguised as cultural sensitivity. 

     This article brings up an issue that I first began to encounter a few months ago when writing about a new crackpot theory from the Academic Left which claimed that the whole concept of 'mind' is an illusion. That article was a difficult one to write. Then, last month, an article appeared in The Medium telling us about a concerning issue among the Left: that robots lack diversity and need Affirmative Action. Try as I might, I couldn't produce an article on that subject. The APA's new position paper presents the same conundrum. 

     It's not that the points raised in these kinds of articles are self-evident and irrefutable. The problem with writing about them is that their subject matter is so logically absurd that it's difficult to formulate an intelligent argument against ideas that are as plain stupid as these. How does someone, for example, formulate a philosophy---even an erroneous one---that the mind is illusion without using the mind to arrive at such a conclusion? The very idea that the mind doesn't exist is self-refuting.

     How does one explain to these people that machinery has no intrinsic has no connection to culture; and to talk about multiculturalism among androids is ridiculous. Likewise with this APA paper. One of Freud's greatest contributions in elevating Psychology to a science was his demonstrations that this so-called "male-female binary" is a major motive force in human social evolution. IOW, taking 'traditional gender roles' out of Psychology is like taking Cellular Biology out of Medicine. All that is left of Psychology is a highly subjective analysis of human emotions and feelings with no actual therapeutic or socially-redeeming value. 

      And that's the basis of the problem. All that needed to be said about three high-brow Leftist social theories was just said in the preceding two paragraphs. It's not like debating over the merits of the proposed Border Wall or Trump's Budget or Tax proposals. In the APA paper, there's nothing to debate. Outside of their initial definition of the problem, their premises are factually false and their conclusions unrealistic and unworkable. If the authors of that paper actually believe any of what they wrote, they should be in a mental hospital themselves. And if they don't really believe it, they shouldn't be holding any high positions of public trust anyway.

      The important thing to take away from all of this is that people who think like these guys will be running things if the Whacko Left Wing ever gets into power. For now, they can sit in their sinecures and spout off about things they don't understand---and that's bad enough---but having such nutcases making public policy will be a disaster. We need to stay the course, drain the swamp, and support the direction President Trump is leading us.

SECOND SUSPICIOUS DEATH AT HOMOSEXUAL ACTIVIST'S HOME

     For the second time since 2017, a man was found dead in the home of Ed Buck of West Hollywood, California. The victim was identified as 55 year-old Timothy Dean; who worked at Saks Fifth Avenue and was a former porn industry figure, according to The Los Angeles Times. Dean died of an unspecified narcotics overdose. The victim in 2017 was a male prostitute named Gemmel Moore, who died of methamphetamine poisoning. Buck was never charged in the 2017 death, and LA County officials don't seem especially eager to pursue an investigation into this year's first high-profile Hollywood casualty. 

      As it happens, both victims were Black men; but Ed Buck is a White Liberal with friends in very high places. A self-made multimillionaire, Buck was a former 'Log Cabin' Republican in Arizona before switching parties during the Clinton co-presidency and moving to California. An open homosexual and drug addict, Buck had a history during the 1980's of arrests for Indecent Exposure and forging prescriptions to obtain Opioid narcotics before learning that a close association with the Clintons protected one from scrutiny for such behaviors. Since that time, too, Buck has been a major donor to Democrat causes and candidates. 

     And, as we should expect, both National-level and California Democrats have had little to say about these activities; though, in fairness some at the grass-roots level have spoken out. One Ashlee Marie Preston, a transgendered Black blog editor, published a rather creepy but highly insightful article hypothesizing that Buck is "a wealthy White politico with a deadly fetishization of disenfranchised Black men." While I don't agree with some of Preston's sociological premises here, I think that the psychological assessments of Buck's character are probably quite accurate. Although Buck's perversion may have a racialist aspect to it, we have seen the same psychodynamics played out in the scandals surrounding Oregon Democrat donor Terence Bean and the disgraced ex-mayor of Seattle, Ed Murray.

      Another disturbing aspect of Buck's case is that both victims seemed to be men who were struggling to escape from the homosexual lifestyle. In Dean's case we were told today that he was active in some sort of religious support group. However, recently released pages from 
Gemmel Moore's private diary are a little more open. These were published by an author named Jasmyne Cannick whom (if I remember correctly) is a Democrat activist in the Los Angeles area herself:

   “My mind and action change. I am not the same person I was born to be,” Moore wrote in his journal. “I felt as if I sold my soul to the devil — I want to be back in the hands of God. I want to be healed from drugs, poverty and troubles. I want independence. I want my own. There’s so much madness going on in my life. It’s got to be illegal and wrong. The way I was raised to be, you would never expect this. I just hope the end result isn’t death. Someone needs to save me soon."

     In a less politically corrected era, Moore's and Dean's apparent attempts to change through religion would have turned the investigative spotlight on Buck like a beacon. Older generations of psychologists and criminologists understood fully well that the 'power exchange' alluded to by Preston (whereby powerful homosexuals exploit vulnerable men) is threatened by religion (because God is the Ultimate Power). Homosexuals of the Buck, Bean, and Murray varieties react to their subjects' conversions about like any other abusive bully in a relationship reacts when they're rejected. Sometimes it results in a violent death. 

     Yet here, in Ed Buck, we have another specimen of the sort of 'Elites' to whom our Democrat opponents in Government, Media, and Academia slavishly bow. These are the sorts of scum populating the Deep State Swamp, which we're now trying to drain---the kinds of people who held the reins of power for the last three decades; and who could come back to that power if we're not vigilant.

MICHAEL HARRIOT, DEATH WISHES, AND THE ROOT OF THE ROOT

   For those who haven't heard of him, Michael Harriot is a writer for The Root Magazine. Harriot has been under some scrutiny lately after launching a profane tirade on Christmas Eve against NRA spokeswoman, Dana Loesch. Part of these lovely holiday sentiments read: "I hope she dies in a car fire with the windows open so she doesn't die of smoke asphyxiation but has to die slow!"

     Such behavior and sentiments, of course, are not uncommon from the Whacko Left. The Left considers these hysterical outbursts as deep and thoughtful expressions of political philosophy; on par with those lofty utterances by the likes of Steven Colbert, Maxine Waters, and Alec Baldwin. 

     As for The Root itself, it purports to be "an Afrocentric online magazine." But is it really as representative of Black Americans as it claims? Some have their doubts, and with good reason. 

     The Root Magazine is a subsidiary of transnational media conglomerate, Univision Communications. Univision also owns the radical Feminist blogsite, Jezebel. In 2013, Univision launched a Left-Wing civic activist initiative funded by gangs like the Clinton Foundation, La Raza, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Common Sense Media. The latter of these is headed by Soros-associate and radical Leftist billionaire Tom Steyer. Steyer donated over $87 million to Democrats in 2016. Common Sense Media has also been campaigning recently against 'gender stereotyping' in the press. 

     It sounds so far that Harriot's employers are a gang of suburban White Liberals, not especially representative of mainstream Blacks. And it gets even more shady when we see that Univision itself is owned by five Wall Street financial oligarchies---each with a 20% share in the company. They are Madison-Dearborn; Providence Equity Partners; TPG Capital; Thomas H. Lee Partners; and the Saban Capital Group. These five companies donated over $2 1/2 million to lobbies, PACs and candidates in 2018. 

     Madison-Dearborn donated to causes of both parties. In 2016, they supported RINO Marco Rubio. Multimillionaire Democrat Congressman Jared Polis of Colorado owns stock in Madison-Dearborn.

     Providence Equity Partners also donated to both parties. In 2016, they supported the RINO Jeb Bush, then switched to supporting Hilary Clinton after Trump won the GOP nomination. 

     TPG Capital donated the most money of these five in 2018; mostly to Democrats. In 2016, their top donation went to the DNC and sent almost $43,000 to the Clinton Campaign. Hilary Clinton was their top recipient among candidates. 

     Thomas H. Lee Partners donated in both election cycles. They also supported RINO Bush and then switched to Clinton in 2016.

    Saban Capital Group donated to Democrats in 2018; and in 2016 was the 12th largest political donor of the entire year: over $15 million to the Democrats---$53,411 to Hilary Clinton personally and half a million to the DNC among all of this slush-funding. Hiam Saban, the CEO of this gang is a billionaire Hollywood Liberal. He even held some advisory posts under the Clinton co-presidency and was a frequent visitor to the White House. 

    With a growing number of Blacks supporting President Trump, it's apparent then that Harriot---and The Root Magazine in general---are just mouthpieces for the White Liberal, Deep-State Elite; out of touch with the people whom they claim to represent.

ANOTHER WHACKO LOSES JOB AFTER TDS ATTACK

   I heard about this incident right before the holidays, but hadn't heard about the outcome. It seems that a fellow in Tucker, Georgia (a suburb of Atlanta) went into a 'vape' shop. He was wearing a pro-Trump t-shirt; when the clerk behind the counter saw him and had a TDS breakdown. 

    The customer videotaped the outburst and shared it on Youtube. It shows the clerk demanding that the customer leave the store while screaming obscenities and throwing merchandise around, according to NBC-11 Atlanta. As shocked patrons looked on and began slipping quietly out of the store, the clerk pulled out his cellphone and began screaming into the receiver.

    "I got a f***er in my store who won't leave," he says into his phone. "He's wearing some Trump stuff. He's wearing some Trump bull**** got some racist bull**** [uninteligible]. I'm f*****, I'm not f***** serving anyone that has anything to do with that f*****."

    The clerk then ran through the store raving incoherently about fascists, racists, capitalists, and something to do with human feces. 

    The video went viral on Youtube; and after the owners of the Xhale City stores, found themselves getting laughed at, they investigated. Not only did they fire the whacko clerk, they also contacted the customer and apologized. Oh well, the clerk can always get a job with the Corporate Media, where such behavior is routine. 

    On a more serious note though, Conservatives need to be extra vigilant these days. As we've seen from the 2016 Election to the Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings; the Left is becoming increasingly dangerous. They've always been prone to irrational acts of violence but the difference today is that they're suddenly going off---like human time-bombs---anyplace, anywhere, and when they do, they go blind to their own self-preservation instincts. Not only are they losing their jobs or ending up in jail; but some have even injured or killed themselves during these outbursts. 

    Obviously we shouldn't live in fear, but we should be aware of what Leftists are prone to do and be prepared. Especially in places like Tucker, Georgia. According to statistics, Tucker's crime rate is 41% higher and their graduation rate 20% lower than the rest of Georgia. 36% percent of the population there is below the poverty line---so you know with numbers like these that the chances are high that most residents there are Democrats. Criminals, ignoramuses, and bums are the ones who benefit most from Liberalism and are most easily provoked to irrational violence.

THE 12 RULES vs. JORDANETICS

   Our last post questioning Vox Day's claims about his publishing 'empire' drew some discussion across the Internet, and justly so. Some readers have been questioning his latest 'bestseller', Jordanetics, which is a supposed expose of Dr. Jordan Peterson. Vox made this claim for his publication back in November: 

    "In 'Jordanetics' political philosopher Vox Day delves deeply into the core philosophy that Jordan Peterson advocates both in his written works and video lectures. In doing so, Day methodically builds a shocking case that will convince even the most skeptical Jordan Peterson supporter to reconsider both the man and his teachings."

     Ever since the release of Jordanetics, Vox has been trumpeting that his 'expose' is selling #1 on Amazon and Kindle; and that Peterson and his followers are ignoring all of these supposedly "shocking cases" which Vox provides. But, as we saw in our last post, it's mathematically impossible for Vox to outsell Peterson. 

     Someone linked to our last post on the website Kiwi Farms (thank you to our readers there). One of their contributors who goes by the name of 'Flexo', provided some stats from Kindle which reveal the truth. On sites like Kindle, publishers can create categories for their works---which means that they can create niches where they have little or no competition. While Kindle doesn't provide sales numbers, they do provide sales rankings which don't include the parameters. Thus we find that:

The 12 Rules for Life by Jordan Peterson (1 year in print)  ranks #213th. 

Jordanetics by Vox Day (3 months in print) ranks #17,355th. 

     So, a year after its initial release, The 12 Rules is still in the Top 250 on Kindle, while Jordanetics---a the top of its release date---hasn't even cracked five figures in the rankings. 

     Based on the tax figures that Vox' Castalia House submitted to the EU Tax Authority, we calculated that combined sales for the Red Pills are around $955/month. Jordanetics sells on Kindle for $5.99. If these were the only sales that CH had during the last three months, the maximum number of Jordanetics sold couldn't be higher than 477 copies. In contrast, it's estimated that The 12 Rules for Life has sold over 2,000,000 copies as of December 31st. 

      Bear in mind that Vox won't release any actual sales figures, so we're making estimates based upon available information. But what clearly appears is that Jordanetics and Vox' attacks on Peterson are simply publicity stunts without any real substance.

VOX DAY'S FUNDING FURTHER QUESTIONED

     After our last post questioning the rather shady connections between Vox Day's fundraising figures and his actual sales numbers, an astute reader pointed out that tax laws in the European Union and the United States have a noticeable difference. EU countries impose a Value-Added Tax (VAT) for goods manufactured within member nations. Now if Vox' sales are really so formidable that "industry leaders are quaking in their boots', then this should be reflected in EU tax records. 

    As a background here, Vox started up Castalia House in 2014 after getting kicked out of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association for trolling and doxxing other members. This project was supposed to dominate the publishing industry---which of course it hasn't. In 2017, Arkhaven Comics was added to the CH 'empire'. Vox outsourced the company to Finland, where it is registered as a domestic corporation. 


     Vox himself is an expat to Italy---which by the EU's own admission is a notorious haven for EU tax cheats. From there and from Finland, both former members of the WW2 Axis Powers, Vox is constantly undermining American culture, religion, and politics as furiously as the domestic parasites on the Far Left do. 

     But that aside, we find some interesting things about Castalia House by consulting the Finnish tax records. Here is their entry in the Business Index:



      One of things that is noteworthy is that CH isn't even listed as a publisher; which is rather odd considering that Vox is constantly boasting about being an 'industry leader.' The main line of business listed here is 'computer programming activities.'  It's somewhat strange that when one goes to the CH link at Vox' blog, this page comes up:


     But when one goes to the website at the Finnish Business Index, this page comes up instead:


    'Alpenwolf' does provide a link to CH, but it's mostly a video-game site. CH is actually listed as an alternative, or affiliated name for Alpenwolf. But it does seem a bit fishy that Vox is representing to his followers one thing and to the Finnish Government another. Which brings up the secondary question of where donors' money to Vox' crowdfunding campaigns actually go. The defunct campaign on Indiegogo lists 'Arkhaven Comics' of Helsinki as the sponsor. But as we've seen, Arkhaven operates under a company not even registered as a publisher. 




     Under Finnish Tax Laws, publishers are subject to a VAT of 10%, which is collected by the European Union Tax Authority. And there is no VAT registration number connected with Alpenwolf, Castalia House, or Arkhaven. According to the Business Index, this company held a VAT Registration until 2015, and has not been renewed. 

      What does this mean? Finland has an exemption from VAT for businesses whose products gross less than 10,000 Euros per annum. (about $11,470 US dollars) Thus it means that CH's entire output grosses less than $11, 470---this includes all of their 'groundbreaking' science-fiction; Arkhaven Comics; Jordanetics; Vox Day's writings: etc. Divided by 12, this figure comes out to a paltry $955.83 in average monthly sales, at best. 

    To put that figure in perspective, consider that the average SSDI benefits for an American welfare recipient is $1,125 monthly. And we have a series of misrepresentations on top of it all. 

     And all of those hundreds of thousands of donated funds? Well, their whereabouts still remains a mystery.

WISCONSIN JUDGE SLAPS DOWN ATTEMPT TO BREAK CHURCHES

    Shortly before Christmas, Judge William Atkinson of Brown County, Wisconsin, annulled a De Pere city ordinance which attempted to force homo acceptance onto area churches. The degenerates on the De Pere City Council passed the ordinance late last year---to go into effect in March---which required businesses, employers, landlords, and others "in the public venue" to submit to homo infiltration under the pretext of non-discrimination. De Pere's ordinance also demanded that churches obey the edict.

  The week before the law was to go into effect, the City was sued by five area churches and a Christian radio station on the grounds that the ordinance was unconstitutional. Judge Atkinson agreed. Not only that, the Judge found the case so clear that he issued a Summary Judgement against the City, avoiding a jury trial.

 "Court finds that churches and their campuses are not public accommodations and the city of De Pere's ordinance infringes on the freedom of religion. Court grants plaintiff's motion for summary judgment and denies defendant's motion to dismiss," the Judge flatly stated, without further comment. But Kevin Snyder, one of the Plaintiffs' attorneys told CBN News the detailed legal ramifications of the case:


 "The ordinance was calculated to re-label religious institutions as places of public accommodation. Had the court gone the other way, it would have been the first time in the country that a church or religious ministry was deemed a place of public accommodation...The city is entitled to its own worldview on religion, marital status, and sexual orientation. But it cannot use the power of the state to pry open the doors of a church to force it to participate in conduct against its faith through the guise of an anti-discrimination law."
  Thus, we can see that if the De Pere Ordinance had stood, religious liberty would have been placed in serious jeopardy. 

   The Whacko Left Wing was infuriated over the decision, to say the least. City Attorney Judy Schmidt-Lehman stormed out of the courtroom without even a word to the Media. The Media, of course, was rooting for the City and against the churches. The local press, with the Green Bay Press-Gazette surpassing all of the others in its virulence, could barely contain their collective outrage. All of this is very symbolic of our gains in 2018. 

    And let's hope that the next year sees the pushback move from churches to other venues that social venues co-opted by the Rainbow Gang.
