    I'm not quite sure if this is the ideal forum for this, but it's the closest fit I could find. When i first read Orwell's 1984 in 2007-2008, I wrote some notes in the Emmanuel Goldstein tract to keep my thoughts straight. Most aren't all that interesting today, but one of them stood out: The answer to the last question was, "Well, at least 12 more years," but that's not the interesting part. The interesting part is this: In 2008, I could only find accidental cognitive dissonance and plain old lies permeating our politics, not deliberate self-deception. The closest parallel was when the Bush administration derided the "reality-based community," but even then they were effectively arguing, "The current state of the world is irrelevant to the action we take next, because we're omnipotent." They were deluded, but they treated beliefs as a tool to control others, not a tool to control themselves. They were changing objective reality arbitrarily, not layering contradictory subjective realities in their minds. That's still a profound perversion of reality, but it's not quite the same thing.

    Right you are. Along these lines, here's one that should terrify any freedom loving individual: The ATF had a budget of around $74 million back in the late 1970s. That's grown to over ONE AND A THIRD BILLION. That'll help you sleep at night

    Due to the conflicting accounts I'll have to wait for the dust to settle to form an opinion. If the reports of both firing shots are correct, then at first glance it looks like a horrible case of mistaken identity on both the restaurant owner and the cop's part...friendly fire during the chaos.

    Heh. I'm all in favor of defunding bureaucratically managed police in favor of elected sheriffs, but their proposed solutions are so ineffectual that it has to be on purpose. I'm guessing this is a setup for some kind of bizarre anarcho-tyranny mashup that they can manipulate further: Let serious criminals run amok, but give peaceful citizens the knee-on-neck for petty statutory infractions or defending themselves, while robbing them to fund the crime in city hellholes and convincing the city dwellers their problems are someone else's fault.

    This is a good thing on multiple levels: Trump made a mistake here by trying to do exactly what the enemy wants him to do, and it could have been a disaster both immediately, and on the Constitutional precedent level. It's possible that Esper, Thune, etc. opposed Trump because Orange Man Bad, but it's also entirely possible that they're simply taking their oaths seriously. The two cases are indistinguishable at the moment, except perhaps in the language they use. This now set a precedent that will make it harder for government to justify abusing the Insurrection Act for any circumstances less severe than this. IF some of the brass said "no" because they're part of the cabal, that also says something: It says that they felt making Trump look bad immediately was better for them than giving Trump the rope to hang himself with the very action this mess was created to provoke. Why? This would have been the cabal's perfect opportunity, because it was effectively the first trap they ever laid for him that he actually walked into. The only possibility I can think of is if they realized too many troops under them are actually loyal to America. Once the military starts being used for domestic issues, we enter banana republic territory where we start counting Generals' heads, and lower officers start relieving higher officers of their command, etc., and it becomes a matter of raw force. It is very likely that the cabal is afraid they don't have the numbers.

    Mini-Me replied to a thread Boogaloo in U.S. Political News
    The "boogaloo" concept exists, but it's a meme, not a militia. The meme was a way for frustrated Second Amendment activists on ar15.com to crack jokes at the absurdity of the civil war they fear is inevitable, and try to drum up a little bit of courage for not complying with gun bans or registration. The meme is organic, and sometimes they'll refer to each other as fellow "boog bois" and make fun of their own silliness (generally bearded, overweight, and over-tacticool'ed). They call one of the forum moderators DK-Prof (a tenured professor originally from Denmark) "Father Boog" due to his decked out appearance at the January 20th protests in Richmond, VA, where the protestors literally cleaned their litter and stickers from the street to show some dignity. Their favorite book of the Bible is the Book of Boogalations. That said, they are serious about their line in the sand, and their presence at these riots has been entirely relegated to helping businesses and people defend themselves by deterring violent rioters. Far from instigating, they debate whether it'd be better not to even show up, due to the smears. Unlike Antifa, they have never coordinated through front groups who fund them (e.g. Friends of Democracy BWI0418'15 documents), and have never "struck first," or even at all as far as I'm aware. The whole idea is that an armed society is a polite society, to begin with. As a side note, all of you already know this, but they have nothing to do with white supremacy, except in-so-far as social justice ideology refers to everything American or individualist as "white supremacy." It's all about the Second Amendment, all the time, for them. There are indeed a rare few who consider themselves "accelerationists," but those guys actually advocate voting straight ticket Democrat to make the collapse happen faster and rip off the band-aid. They're usually not well-received. Before this week, for every one person who glorifies the idea of a civil war, there are a lot more who argued, basically, "Don't be an idiot. If we get to that point, life is going to be a living hell for everyone." As of this week I'd say most of them are Anti Federalist-level frustrated, but they're still generally defense-minded and hyper-aware that anything they ever do will be misrepresented. There are also, in Virginia specifically, particular groups who effectively could be called a budding militia, like the guys calling themselves "VA Battle Buddies" who spearheaded the move to bring their long guns to the Richmond protests to make a point (instead of begging, "please stop subjugating and humiliating us" in dress shirts and slacks for the umpteenth time).

    I care. Am I a neoconservative? Even Trump's core base isn't neoconservative. Many of them used to be, but some of you need to stop living in 2008 and start listening to what people's views are today. Times change. In any case, Brian is right: This isn't a question of, "Is this a distraction from Obamagate, or a distraction from a currency crisis?" Not only is it both, but it's not even just both: This isn't just some distraction to keep our eyes off the ball, so we can forget everything and get back to our regularly scheduled slow boil. I don't think things are going to get back to "normal." I think this is the beginning of the real-deal endgame. It's happening, folks. The intensity will die off a bit shortly, but it will become an utter catastrophe in November. Now that they're coming under real personal scrutiny for the first time, and economic conditions are ripe, the elite have started the war on America in earnest: Foment a communist insurrection to provoke a brutal police crackdown (thankfully we've mostly seen restraint thus far, but the media will twist ANYTHING). Understand, Antifa is the Democratic Socialists of America's muscle, and they are literally full-blown Marxist-Leninist communists who have covert support from at least half of the Democratic Party now. Use the most shocking imagery from the crackdown to weaken America's will to fight back, or for anyone in disagreement to stick up for themselves. Lean on social justice ideology to extract compliance from every institution and literally half of the politically active population. Engage the brainwashed Cult of Woke in Maoist rituals to keep the momentum going and make normal people feel isolated and afraid. Usher in a covert Bolshevik revolution by shaming any dissenters from the public sphere, leaving complicit officials with complete control.

    Assuming the premise is correct: that twice as many unarmed whites are shot dead by police as are blacks. - Number of blacks shot dead by police = X - Number of whites shot dead by police = 2X To calculate the per capita rates, you need to know how many of each category are in the US population. Assuming the US population is Y, then: - Number of blacks = Y * 0.12 - Number of whites = Y * 0.613 And the per capita rate is the number in the category killed divided by the number of people in the category: - Per capita rate for blacks = (X) / (Y * 0.12) … or 8.333 * (X / Y)

    And the White, non-Hispanic or Latino population make up 61.3% of the nation's total, with the total White population (including White Hispanics and Latinos) being 76.9%. So do the math for per capita comparisons.

    Same thing at my two local grocers - one way aisles. No one is paying any attention to them at all. Plus there is this long, socially distanced queue which lead up to a distribution point for the cashiers; and another which leads to the distribution point for the self-checkouts. And they won't allow you into the stores without a mask. It's the new abnormal.

    As I currently understand it, the Chicoms are International Communists and have been playing international politics/trade for centuries. They have an advantage. The Russian commies were better at national politics and learning the ways of international affairs/politicking as they went along.

    What is this the "Let's take what's left of the liberty movement here at RPFs and demoralize the shit out of them" thread? FFS, with the pessimism, defeatism and lack of any faith in the principles of liberty that seems so popular around here in recent years it's no wonder people are perceiving imminent failure. And the worst part is that, ironically, we've actually been handed the best opportunity for a real, stunning victory the likes of which could set the bad guys back decades at least that I've seen in my entire lifetime. Fuck. I need some fresh air. The negativity is stfling.

    Hi,

    I can't remember if it was in chat or in a thread but you wrote a very basic understanding of NAP. Something about authorizing force or being a victim of force. Do you remember what I'm talking about?

    Thanks

On the Importance of Theory

by Cabal on 03-29-2014 at 03:43 PM
Thinking aloud, so to speak...

There is a mindset prevalent among the politically interested that seem to segregate 'theory' from 'reality', as if to suggest these things are mutually exclusive, and that a focus on the former produces, or otherwise indicates, an aversion to the latter. Thus, this mindset tends to celebrate a regard for the latter while rejecting the significance of the former. I submit that this is an erroneous, and perhaps even a destructive mindset.

The Rite

by Cabal on 09-27-2013 at 07:52 AM
A promise, a lie, a sleight of hand
This is what will move a man
To cede his trust, and time, and being
To any stranger who says We can

Do this, and that, foretell some change
Fabricate hope, and cease the reigns
Pay no heed to history's past
This time's difference will prove us sane

So to the circus we shall head
Starving for this daily bread
In our wake a cardinal path
As if these passages we never read
