The point of all this is that China has no reason to force a confrontation with the American empire over Taiwan. Through bribery, maneuvering and the general incompetence of the American ruling elite, China can quietly dictate policy to the regime in Washington.

Today, free of moral framework and free of factual reality, those old 18th century urges, once bound by Scripture, have curdled into petulant and nasty partisanship. The American Left is now just a hysterical tirade against anything or anyone that represents order.

The madness of the Left gets all the attention, but it is the intellectual bankruptcy of the Right that should get the attention. The only thing preventing people from noticing the absurdity of the Right is the over-the-top lunacy of the Left. When this clown car crashes, there is no rescue team.

The Lefty Devil. One of the most important things the Left in America does in the culture war is convince their opponents to play the role of devil for them. The reason our side keeps losing is our guys are stupid and keep playing the role of bogeyman for the Left.
An unintended consequence of the war on imaginary white nationalists is that the morality is changing. The Left is not fighting against “bad whites” but are now being seen as antiwhite. The Left used to get away with the claim that they were trying to help or protect nonwhites from the bad whites.
This is a truth that the core of the dissident right has always grasped, but never found a way to exploit. Most people, especially people in politics or cultural movements, are not interested in reality. Politics is about storytelling.
The reboot of last year’s big political flop, otherwise known as Trump Impeachment, hit the big stage in DC this week. What this looks like is theater for the people inside the wire so they can be reminded there is a wire, and it must be maintained.

This is a useful historical example to keep in mind when reading this Time article on how the oligarchs rigged the 2020 election. Usually, people who commit crimes try to conceal their actions, but in this case, the principles are willing to boast about it.

That really is the story here with GameStop. The marketplace has been perverted by insiders with special access to both market makers and regulators. The financial markets are no longer tethered to economic reality. It is just a giant bust out. This is why this event is being compared to Gamergate.

Our new totalitarians turn all of this on its head. The dealing with the problem is the end. In the case of the poor unfortunate who has run afoul of the rulers, the point of the process is submitting the troublemaker to endless torment that has no purpose beyond the pleasure of the tormentor.

The new president marks the end of the old civic nationalist America and the beginning of the new managerial state. Competitive elections and open debate have been swept away in favor of ceremonial elections and speech codes. The managerial class has formally seized control of the country.
The silent majority is now a permanent minority. Further, the political marketplace no longer exists. You are not allowed to speak your mind to your fellow citizens, unless your opinions are approved by the managerial class. The ballot box also will be limited to their approved options.
Look around at what is happening and it is as close as any western society has come to fascism in 80 years. The people trying to destroy Trump and his supporters are corporate actors, not the state. Corporatism is a foundation stone of fascism and that is what is usurping the authority of our system

The storming of the Capitol opened a lot of eyes. The people in the media demanding mass executions of Trump supporters were just six months ago gloating over left-wing mobs burning cities. Six months ago, telling us the cops were a problem and now they are demanding they open fire on protestors.
During the Kavanaugh hearings, Democrats organized mobs of screeching women to harass Republicans in the halls of the Capitol. Party media was there to celebrate it as the purest expression of democracy. It was power to the people time. That was not the case yesterday, according to the media.
Millenials came into easy times like their parents, but they didn't fear war, recession, or the threat of Soviet communism. One result is an unrealistic sense of entitlement. You see this most acutely on the Left, where their demands are those of a toddler faced with a toy that is not working.
For a generation now immigration patriots have been warning us that the American ruling class is importing a new people. They did not like ruling over the middle-class white people that made the country, so they were bringing in new brown people to break the back of the middle and working class.
One of the most amusing and revealing disasters in the book publishing business was the Naomi Wolf blunder of 2019. The establishment is loaded with grifters on both sides. From this side of the great divide, the grifters of Conservative Inc. are obvious, but they are pikers compared to the Left.

While every society of sufficient size has factions, the interests of those factions come after the interests of the republic. This is the framework of civic nationalism. Since the middle of the last century or so, this view of politics has been the exclusive domain of the Right.
The Purpose Driven Life. The great battle between good whites and bad whites exists because it fills that need for a purpose. In the albescence of some external foe, the good whites keep their crusading skills sharp by going to war with the bad whites over some moral cause.
The Left and their ruling class backers had slowly decided they could no longer live with us as equals in society. This year that become stunningly clear. The managerial class has become class aware and they look at the rest of us as insects.

These new internal passports proving you are up to date on your Covid jabs will be used to compel compliance. If this sounds a lot like fascism, you would be right. In this age, it will mean dreary clothing styles and camps for the people the managerial class does not like.
America is about to descend into one-party rule like you see in all third world countries, which is what happens when you import the people of the third world. California is more like Mexico now than historic America.

A generation ago, Democratic politicians would court industrial labor unions and salt their platforms with promises to the middle and working class. Today, Democrat politicians would not be caught dead with a union boss. Instead they hang out at Davos with bankers and titans of the information age.
There’s no need to pretend there is a mystery here. Hunter Biden was selling influence and access to foreign players. He was hired into a no-show job by a Ukrainian oligarch so that oligarch could get special treatment from the Obama administration. It was well known in Washington.

A defining feature of the managerial state is that it creates problems that require it to then fashion complex solutions to solve. A group of experts from the managerial class made some reform, which then created problems. The solution is to draft a new set of experts to solve this new problem.

Incorporated America. Note too that the enforcers at these firms clearly share information with one another about violators. This is why our radicals now sound like every HR department. The managerial elite is imposing its corporate sensibilities on the country.
A striking feature of American liberal democracy is the great gap between the reality of the political class and the people. The Cloud People are not just floating above the Dirt People, living different lives, like aristocrats of old. The general public is an abstraction, not a physical reality.

The most important development in the Trump era will be the collapse of conservatism as a political movement. The official Right had been in crisis for a long time, but the old political dynamic had locked it in place. Trump did not usher in a new era, so much as discredit the old.
What has happened this year is right out of the handbook on psychological warfare. The point of these operations is to destroy social trust and trust in the ruling class. Someone or a collection of someones is waging a psychological warfare and our rulers don’t see it.
Blacks are more likely to contract the virus. If the price of helping the people they claim to care so much about is the acknowledgment that nature does not distribute her gifts equally among people or groups of people, then they are perfectly willing to see those people suffer and die.
Television is the great propaganda weapon, so it is a useful window into the thinking of the oligarchs. They are the leading edge of the latest Progressive fads. That’s what makes the ads a useful window into the black soul of our rulers. The ad makers are all from the ruling class.

There are two reasons outsider politics is plagued with weirdos. One is they are always going to be the most open to newcomers. The other reason for the weirdo problem is these weirdos are always looking for a home, so as soon as something gets going, they are attracted to it like moths to a flame.
The truth behind these riots is that they have nothing to do with legitimate grievances. They are simply a happening that is drawing in the disaffected white youth that provides bodies for Antifa. These are young whites who have no place in the neo-liberal order, so they end up in Antifa.
A good way to have your life destroyed is to go around breaking taboos, especially the ones that matter to the people in charge. Breaking taboos works only when a critical mass of people decides to break the taboo and a larger set of people are ready to join them.
The so-called conservatives are muttering about how the choice of Kamala Harris as Biden’s running mate is an ominous example of identity politics. They have it all wrong, but Harris does provide some insights into how identity politics will work in the new non-white America of the near future.
President Trump may be facing one of the most unusual re-election campaigns in the history of the country. Unlike most incumbents, his own party will be working hard to elect his opponent. The two parties are just the two faces of the same crowd. Both faces hate Trump.

Instead the decision [VP Harris] was made by his handlers and it was decided he needed more support from the tech oligarchs. He had the financial oligarchs and Israel was okay with him, so the final piece of the puzzle was Google. He now has the blessing of all the power centers that run America.

Parable Of The Lizard People. This is a useful way to consider the current organized street violence. These riots are one step from having commercials from Amazon and Goldman Sachs. It’s also why no one in charge thinks anything is wrong or this needs to be stopped.
The logic of political violence is best understood by considering the way Progressives frame their anti-speech pogroms. They keep equaling words and ideas that vex them with violence. For example, someone posting crime statistics on Twitter is accused of posting violent content or inciting violence.

It is a good and necessary reminder that the ruling class is well beyond reform, because they have been afflicted with a strange new religion. They are angry at the Flynn result on moral grounds, not legal ones. Laws written on paper are your laws and subordinate to their laws, their moral laws.
What we are witnessing is not a revolution. The Left would love for people to believe that, which is why they have instructed conservative media to sell that idea. Instead, we are seeing the breakdown of order. Government, either because of corruption or ineptitude, is unable to enforce the laws.
The new religion that has emerged among our rulers is not a great leap forward in consciousness, but a leap backward. It is primitive, superstitious and simplistic in its statements and actions. It is as if the world has been taken over by an ancient tribe of primitives who hate us.

One of the truths about politics that many would prefer to ignore is that politics is not about facts and reason. The game is about persuasion. In order to persuade someone, you need to understand his needs and motivations in order to frame your appeal to him in a way that he can understand.
What’s going on is a push by the non-white elements in the new religion trying to make their move on the old white and Jewish people at the top. The Old Guard has run the Left since the 1960’s. The new swarthy guard thinks these choreographed events are about showing the Old Guard who's in control.

The Right often makes the mistake conservatives have made in assuming the Left has a practical reason behind their actions. Ideologues do not need a practical motive like money or power. The ideologue seeks power in order to advance his agenda, which often just means crushing his opponents.
