WHACKO LEFT RECOMMENDS TAROT TO COPE WITH TRUMP

     Since President Trump's victory in 2016, the Whacko Left has been sinking further and further into mass hysteria and desperation. Now, according to a BBC article today, Liberals are turning to in large numbers to Tarot and other forms of magic to cope. 

     Tarot designers Karen Vogel and Vicki Noble of Berkeley, California told the BBC that sales are at their highest in history and that they have risen 268% during the last six months alone. The two, who were 'Women's Studies' graduates, developed a Feminist-based Tarot system during the 1970s. Like many small business owners today, they credit President Trump for their recent prosperity---although for a different reason than most.

     "Our society is going through an extreme sense of alienation," Vogel told the press, "Donald Trump's victory, the rise of Far Right groups, violence, and misogyny...People are lonely and angry. Tarot helps them cope with these difficult times." 

      Of course, it couldn't be that---because of our recent economic growth---people have more to spend on things like Tarot cards, or other objects of unusual interest. So says Tina Gong of New York City a (self-described) witch and Tarot designer.

     "The rise of Tarot has everything to do with our current political and socioeconomic environment," she hissed. " The witch symbolizes everyone who has been an 'other' and who has no place or control in the world such as women, people of color, and the LGTBQ community." 

     I can't resist mentioning how perfectly Hilary Clinton was a living embodiment of that last statement. But despite Gong's depiction of a typical Tarot client, she confessed to the BBC that the majority of her clients are young, middle-class white women who "don't want to be seen as good girls and see the Tarot as a form of political resistance." 

     Gong apparently is active too in a group that she mentioned, The Magic Resistance. This is an online group of angry witches who put curses on President Trump and his coterie. 

     And these views, according to the BBC, are roundly applauded by the soothsayers' fellow-mountebanks in Academia. Mike Sosteric, a Canadian Sociology professor pontificated that traditional religions are 'too patriarchal' to be viable; so people are turning to alternative ideology-based systems---which he somehow imagines is the purpose of Tarot:

     "The Tarot emerged in 15th Century Italy and has no mystical roots. Tarot was an ideological tool. During the transformation from Feudalism to Capitalism, the ruling classes used Tarot to 'gamify' the civilization-building process. The cards guided people about the new roles in society. They helped the ruling classes to mobilize and manage the masses."

     Actually, no---Tarot (at least in its modern form) is believed to have originated around the 12th Century by a heretical cult called the Cathars who had a colony in southern France. The Cathars were full-fledged whackos who, among other things, forbade eating eggs and taught that sodomy was the only form of sex sanctioned by the Bible. It's said that the Tarot deck was used by them to receive divine messages. After the Cathars were suppressed, the practice of reading cards to tell futures and fortunes became Christianized. They were in widespread use long before the Italian Renaissance. 

     But for the modern Leftists---to whom the personal is political---even fortune-telling makes a political statement. While in power, the Left always resorts to political force to impose their will on society; so it's logical that out-of-power they'd turn to supernatural force like black magic and curses. It's telling that they don't turn to God, but to Dark Powers in their distress. That speaks volumes about their characters.

CHINESE OP-ED HUMILIATES ARROGANT US MEDIA

     China, as expected, was quite supportive of the consensus reached during the recent Singapore Summit. They had been proposing a peace settlement for some time which included several points agreed to by Presidents Trump and Kim.

     Editors at the CPC's official newspaper, The Global Times, however had harsh words for their American counterparts in the press. Observing that "the US Media has been rife with criticism of the Singapore Summit's achievements" they went on to lecture American journalists like a schoolmaster would speak to dunces.

     "American Media's debate on US gains and losses after the Kim-Trump Summit has strayed from the point. Instead, they should focus on whether the Summit helps facilitate the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and does so with minimum cost. However, all they care about is whether Trump made concessions and North Korea or China benefited as a direct result. If the two Asian countries do benefit, the US Media will be upset to the greatest extent."

     This is very true; but we would add to it that the Media Jackals are also foaming with rage because Trump also benefits politically. He accomplished what Liberal icons Carter, Clinton, and Obama failed to do. 

     "North Korean-US negotiations will be a long-term process. Trump's critics think that the US should recklessly exert maximum pressure because that's where the American advantage lies. The progress of US-Korean talks should never be decided by American domestic politics...Should the US be upset because Pyongyang and Beijing are happy? Negotiation is about finding the biggest common-ground instead of imposing conditions through trickery and intimidation."

    In China, they probably don't realize that trickery and intimidation are the foundations upon which the US Corporate Media operates. At least The Global Times admits that their opinions reflect those of the CPC. Our MSM poses as objective and transparent when in reality they are the most slavish toadies of the DNC and other special interests. 

     There are several parties involved in the Korean Peace Process: North Korea, South Korea, the US, China, Russia, and Singapore, who hosted the Summit. With the exception of the US media, all of those countries are cheering the success of the Summit and looking forward to the next step in the process. And as the American Media sinks further and further into irrelevance, their hysterical shrieks become more and more muted in the shadow of the Trump Administration's triumphs.

CNN REPORTER HAS EMBARRASSING BREAKDOWN IN SINGAPORE

     Nutcase CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta has made a complete fool of himself yet again; this time at the Singapore Summit. The multimillionaire 'journalist' went berserk on two separate occasions; caught on videotape.

    At one point during the meeting, Presidents Trump and Kim came out on the balcony and waved to the crowd. Acosta allegedly began jumping up and down, blurting wild questions to the shock and disgust of international reporters. To quiet the rabid reporter, President Trump calmly replied that "the meeting is going very well," and returned inside. Enraged, Acosta turned on the crowd and screamed: "Hey! If they're not going to let me into their #@$%&/ meeting this is what happens!" The hotheaded fool didn't even realize that his microphone was still open and broadcasting to the entire world.

     RT News cited an unnamed source who said that, after the incident, Kim and Trump had an informal discussion about Freedom of the Press. The North Korean President was puzzled as to why we tolerate such behavior. In fairness to Kim, the Communist nations in Asia all hold the belief that a free press is a destabilizing influence in society and they see objectively the polarization, dumbing-down, and demoralizing that our media causes in society. What they don't realize is that people like Acosta are abusing the system; and that the free market has a few built-in fail-safes. Like access to foreign media when ours becomes too incompetent. 

     Acosta later started shouting during the treaty proposal signing, disrupting the event. As a side note, this isn't the first time that Acosta has behaved in this irresponsible manner. In January, he had to be escorted out of the White House Press Room after losing it during a press briefing while Trump was hosting the President of Kazakhstan. 

       Acosta, of course, is a hero to the Loony Left who were praising his conduct side-by-side with Robert DeNiro's breakdown at the Tony Awards. Those two represent quite clearly the mentality and character of the average Democrat these days.

TRUMP FOES GNASH TEETH AT SINGAPORE SUCCESS

     The historic Singapore Summit concluded today with both North Korea and the United States agreeing to a thawing of relations. Everywhere except the American Corporate Media---whose pundits' predictions failed miserably once again---were applauding Trump's principled and sensible stand. KCNA, North Korea's sole media outlet, reported earlier that Kim Jong-Un would be visiting the US in the near future; and that Trump was scheduling a trip to Pyongyang.

    "Even if a country has had a hostile relationship with us in the past, our attitude is that, if that nation respects our autonomy, we shall seek normalization through dialogue." was a statement to KCNA through the North Korean Foreign Ministry.  

     President Trump took the bold step of terminating American military exercises in and around the Korean Peninsula; which was a huge obstacle to peace. Trump, however, hasn't agreed to lifting sanctions and diplomatic relations are still on hold; but there is considerable optimism that American troops will leave Korea after 68 years and that bilateral trade and diplomacy will establish permanent peace there. The Cold War began in Korea; the Singapore Summit should mark its official end. 

      Few Americans really grasp the significance of Singapore. In averting war, Trump crossed some very powerful Beltway interests which actively sought a Second Korean War. The coverage of Singapore has in the Corporate Media has ranged from muted despair to hostile sneering to outright rage. The Democratic Party Establishment wanted war in Korea so they could capitalize on 'regime change' both politically and financially. The Neocons wanted war in Korea because the payoffs they received from defense contractors and the Moonies was a Neocon cash-cow. The Alt-RINO/Red Pills wanted war in Korea because they think that there are too many Asians on Earth already; and an atomic war would be a good way to get rid of millions of them. 

      The Singapore Summit ranks with the Sino-US Trade Deal of 2017  as Trump's greatest Foreign Policy achievement. The US Media, slinking away like a bunch of wet hens, won't give him the credit that he deserves. But the proof will be in the pudding when trade between our two countries opens again.

TRUMP AND KIM MEET IN SINGAPORE

   Much to the frustration of US Liberals and Neocon RINOs, the long-anticipated face-to-face meeting between Presidents Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un went off in Singapore as scheduled. We don't have all of the details yet, but RT News reported just moments ago that both leaders left the talk in good spirits and briefly spoke to the international press. 

     President Kim stated that the summit was "a good prelude to peace", while President Trump described it as "A lot of progress---better than anyone could have expected." Trump also alluded to a proposed document that the two leaders would sign---as of yet we do not know the nature of that agreement.



      Op-ed writers in the Chinese news outlet The Global Times speculated that the two countries were about to establish formal diplomatic relations. They noted that both American and North Korean flags were displayed at the meeting---which typically doesn't happen in countries without such ties.

      What we will say here for now, is that this meeting is something that we at this blog wanted to see happen and have advocated for some time. The end of the Cold War ended should have ended the hostilities on the Korean Peninsula. But the sordid and mercenary interests of the Deep Statists, the Moonie Cult fanatics, and the toadies of both---the Corporate Media---isolated North Korea and rebuffed every attempt Pyongyang made for rapprochement. North Korea was unjustly called part of 'An Axis of Evil' by the RINO Bush and was a scapegoat during Obama's 'Pivot to Asia'. 

      In 2016, President Kim expressed a desire to meet with Trump. Trump nearly fell into the same trap as his predecessors under the malignant influence of Tillerson, McMaster, and Mattis. With the first two booted from power, Trump was able to do what he does best: think outside of the box; gain a clearer picture and then do the right thing.

      North Korea was never a threat to the United States after 1953---not even with American troops stationed in South Korea. Pyongyang only began seeking advanced weapons of mass destruction after being threatened by the likes of Bush and Obama. What North Korea really needs---and certainly Trump will bring up this matter---is bilateral trade with the US. Marxist economies are never very efficient and the arms race imposed on North Korea has been a tremendous drain on the nation's resources. By opening to American markets, North Korea will have access to American goods---particularly agricultural. 

       This type of agreement would also obviate the need for massive American military spending to maintain a force in South Korea. South Korean President Moon has expressed a willingness to take on more---and ideally all---of the responsibility for his nation's defense. There is really no need for the 'peacekeeping' force we maintain there; currently about 25,000 personnel. They could better be deployed defending our own borders, for a change.

       Time will tell what will come of this summit, but the beginning looks positive. It's more than has been done by American leaders in Korea since the fall of the Iron Curtain.



      

ACTOR HAS TDS ATTACK AT TONY AWARDS

    Has-been Hollywood 'actor' Robert DiNiro experienced an attack of Trump Derangement Syndrome at the 72nd Annual Tony Awards on Sunday night. The ceremony is an annual event honoring 'excellence in live Broadway Theater' and is non-profit endeavor to raise money for Theater Education. But, DiNiro, when before the microphone to introduce a winner; suddenly went berserk and began screaming profanity and anti-Trump slogans on live TV.

    DiNiro's outburst caused a near riot in the audience: many of whom were triggered into various TDS spasms. RT News carried some excerpts of Twitter comments from deranged Liberals:

     "Robert DiNiro is a national treasure" one slobbered. This one might actually have a point. DiNiro will be remembered for this outburst far more than he will for his less-than-stellar acting career. Remember, DiNiro is considered talent in a world where people like Harvey Weinstein make the decisions. 

      Here was another real gem: "The genius of Robert DiNiro's Trump critique tonight is that it will crowd out a share of the North Korea Summit propaganda tomorrow." 

     That comment really reflects a sick mind. Trump achieved something that no president from Harry Truman onward has managed: a face-to-face peace talk with the president of North Korea. And this jughead actually believes that summit is less significant than some vulgarities spouted from the drug-addled mouth of a Hollywood millionaire. It just gets better:

      "Robert DiNiro introduced Bruce Springsteen at the Tony Awards with a statement that expresses the sentiments of the overwhelming majority of Americans." proclaimed another genius. DiNiro's 'statement' actually does reflect the majority consensus in some communities: the DNC, ISIS, MS-13, the Corporate Media; and a growing number of inmates recently sent to federal prisons for corruption, racketeering, medicare fraud, gang activity, narcotics trafficking, etc.

      This latest Leftist meltdown is further proof of their complete bankruptcy. They're basically reduced to running around in black pajamas smashing store-windows or blowing off with their potty-mouths in front of any available microphone. This is why there's room for optimism in the 2018 and 2020 elections. They can't scream loud enough to drown out Trump's accomplishments; and the reason that they have to scream is because they really can't explain to us how much better we were under 'progressives' like Carter, Clinton, and Obama. "I hate Trump" is the Alpha and Omega of the Left's entire political platform. Politically speaking they're a paper tiger.

VOX DAY ON THE VIRTUE OF COWARDICE

    Readers will remember that only about a year ago, one of the 'non-dangerous' street bums of Portland, Oregon---a self-proclaimed White Nationalist---killed two men and permanently injured a third who interfered with his attempt to attack a pair of young women. The Red Pills in the so-called Manosphere made fools of themselves defending the thug as a hero and portraying the victims as deluded chumps.

     So Vox Day, one of the cult's ringleaders and a White Nationalist himself, recently praised two effete Britons who ran away from a similar incident. 

      "Why should they be ashamed?" Vox spouts, "They did nothing to be ashamed of. She wasn't their daughter, wife, or mother. They had no obligation to risk being injured or even having the polish of her shoes scuffed for her. She's lucky that they didn't simply sit there and laugh at her."

      Now Vox claims that the Red Pill Cult represents true Christianity. He probably should reflect on what Jesus did when the Pharisees were about to stone a woman to death. But continues putting his foot in his mouth:

     "Women have spent the last 50 years telling men that everything is their fault and that they are both unneeded and unwanted. Women broke the socio-sexual contract, which is why many White men quite reasonably feel absolutely no duty to look out for women, children, or anyone else to whom they feel no direct responsibility."

      Granted---in the Red Pills' case anyway---elevating cowardice to a virtue is making a virtue of necessity. But let's take two hypothetical situations to illustrate why Vox' position is detrimental in the social sense:

#1: An anti-male woman is attacked by Chad and Tyrone in a dark alley at night. Chuck Norris is passing by, sees the struggle and puts the two thugs to sleep on the sidewalk.

#2:  An anti-male woman is attacked by Chad and Tyrone in a dark alley at night. Vox Day is passing by, sees the struggle and runs down the street screaming until he reaches a 'safe space.'

      Which of these two scenarios would likely change Ms. Bigot's mind about the necessity of men in her life? And which of the two would reinforce her 'all-men-are-pigs' attitude?

      This is what Jesus meant when he spoke of 'turning the other cheek'. The man who risks his life to save others---even when he knows the others despise him---is behaving in a Christ-like fashion. On the Cross, Jesus even prayed of those who crucified Him: "Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do." It is said that Barabbas, in whose place Christ was crucified, repented at the Foot of the Cross and joined the Apostles. 

       This brings to mind a story I vividly remember from childhood: an old gentleman in the rural area where I grew up was a member of the Ku Klux Klan and a racialist church. One night while jacklight-hunting in a marshy area, he fell into quicksand. His two companions ran away, but two Black hunters coming from the other direction heard the commotion and came to investigate. By the time the Blacks arrived, they could only see an arm rising up out of the pit. One tied a rope around his waist and dove into the quicksand. With both men submerged; he took the old man by the waist while his companion pulled on the rope, bringing them both out of the mire. Had the rope broken or slipped, there would have been two casualties that night. When the old man recovered, he thanked his rescuers and broke off with the Klan and his racist church. By behaving with Christ-like self-sacrifice, the Black men exposed the old man's hypocritical faux-Christianity, and he repented and became a better man.

      The first commandment which God gives us in the Bible is wherein he says to Adam, "Maintain the Garden and defend it." (Genesis ii: 15). This was before Eve was created; hence it is a commandment specifically addressing the duties of the males of our race. 

       Once again, the teachings of the Red Pills stand at variance with teachings of Christ and the Church. They would be better served spending more time learning what Christianity actually teaches than the self-serving sophistries of their self-appointed leaders.
