Dumbest “Climate Change” Lunatics in the World?

French “climate activists” were upset at how much water is used on golf courses so in their crusade to save humanity they went out to a golf course and filled the holes with cement.

It takes about thirty seconds for a greenskeeper to insert a new hole on a green, so it looks like humanity will not be saved after all.

The Consummate Bureaucrat

The pre-Hoover, pre-“FBI”, “Bureau Of Investigation” was founded in 1908 by Charles Bonaparte, one of Emperor Napoleon’s clan.

From what I gather, Bonaparte was probably a more admirable and trustworthy character than the “FBI” “founder”, the perennial self publicist bureaucrat J. Edgar Hoover.

I found this Joseph Kraft article below of interest. It emphasizes that, above all else, Hoover was a consummate bureaucrat from a bureaucratic family background. The image, prestige and pecking order position of the agency probably meant more to him than anything the bureau actually did or did not do.

J. Edgar Hoover-The Compleat Bureaucrat, by Joseph Kraft

NOTE: This is the same Joseph Kraft who in an early deep state expose’ article, “School for Statesmen,” in Harper’s of July 1958, revealed that the chief agent in the formal founding of the Council on Foreign Relations was “Colonel” House, supported by such protégés as Walter Lippmann, John Foster Dulles, Allen Dulles and Christian Herter. It was House who acted as host for the Round Table Group, both English and American, at the key Paris meeting of May 19, 1919, in the creation of the CFR. Kraft conceded that the CFR “comes close to being an organ of what C. Wright Mills has called The Power Elite – a group of men, similar in interest and outlook, shaping events from invulnerable positions behind the scenes.”

Sign of the Times

These FBI agents pictured below are simply upholding the sacred J. Edgar Hoover tradition of the Bureau. I always imagined in my mind’s eye that Hoover in drag would appear like a homely Aunt Bee on The Andy Griffith Show. In today’s transgendered/transsexual Toppsy-Turvy world the only aberration is still calling the abomination they work for and serve the Department of Justice. This satanic incubus was malevolent from its conception in 1908, its name changing to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in 1935 under Hoover.

DC Fantasyland — No Recession & Inflation Was 0%

With each passing day, the Biden Administration drifts further and further from reality. Politicians are notorious for practicing deception, but when lying becomes constant, even it starts to lose its “effectiveness.” The truth, and those who speak it, start to look like a breath of fresh air. Real life can’t be powered by lies.

Getting to the Core of Marxist Delusions and Evasions

These two excellent items below go together. You must understand exactly what is going on here in order to truly share this vital information with family, friends and colleagues. Just denouncing Marxism and Marxist regimes and their totalitarian terrorism and murder of over one hundred million persons is not enough. One must take a radical strategic approach and tactic.

“Radical” – of or pertaining to the root; fundamental. No pragmatic expediency or superficial rhetoric. Since 1969 my personal motto has been Henry David Thoreau’s powerful statement – “There a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one striking at the root.” You must strike at the gnostic roots of this satanic atheistic religion masking as a philosophy of liberation and interpretation of “real” (i.e. Marxist) reality.

Never Been Tried? by Spencer A. Klavan

In Volume 2 of his Gulag Archipelago, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn recalls how he and his fellow prisoners would amuse themselves by quizzing Marxist scholars who ended up alongside them in the Soviet labor camps. These professors of the Communist Academy could look directly at the ravages of Stalinist oppression, at the concentration camps in which they themselves were imprisoned, and insist that neither Stalin nor the Party were to blame.

“Look over there: how poverty-stricken our villages are,” Solzhenitsyn would say. “An inheritance from the Tsarist regime,” the true believer would reply. The impoverished countryside was “uncharacteristic”; food shortages and famine were “old wives’ tales”; and if the farmers were starving, well, “have you looked in all their ovens?”

Anyone who has debated a really committed Marxist will recognize this sort of unflappable devotion. “Impenetrability, that was their chief trait!” writes Solzhenitsyn. In the West, of course, entire university departments are devoted to insulating Marxism against the history of its own failure. Confronted with the manifold atrocities of Communist regimes worldwide, the diehard apologist will retort serenely that sabotage, or ideological impurity, or your lying eyes, are really at fault. True Marxism has never been tried.

Uber’s “Community Standards”

I called up an Uber on my phone this morning and a message popped up saying that I must consent to Uber’s “community standards” if I wanted to use the service.  Upon reading the “standards” I learned that they are “experts in equity, inclusion, and diversity,” followed by page after page of critical race theory mumbo jumbo about how to combat allegedly pervasive white racism.

Absolutely Fantastic – One of the Most Powerful, Radical Voices in Media Today


“Radical” – of or pertaining to the root; fundamental. No pragmatic expediency or superficial rhetoric. Since 1969 my personal motto has been Henry David Thoreau’s powerful statement – “There a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one striking at the root.” Steve Deace embodies this elemental principal. His new book, The Rise of the Fourth Reich, is his manifesto striking at the satanic evil of the malignant deep state.

Trolling the IRS, 258 AD

On this date (August 10), 1,764 years ago, St. Lawrence, the Archdeacon of Rome, was executed for trolling the IRS of his day.

Emperor Valerian launched a persecution against Christians in early August of 258, ordering that all Christian clergy be executed.  On August 6, the Bishop of Rome, Pope Sixtus II, was captured in a cemetery while saying Mass.  He was sentenced to death.  Per imperial order, according to the forfeiture law, all of the church’s money was also to be confiscated.  Lawrence was the treasurer in charge of the cathedral’s goods to be distributed to the poor.

Lawrence asked for three days to comply with the “audit.”  He used that time to feverishly distribute the treasury of the cathedral to the poor.  When he was summoned to the prefect’s office to turn over the church’s riches, instead of money, he presented a delegation of the poor and crippled as the “treasures of the church.”  He is said to have remarked that “The church is truly rich, far richer than your emperor.”  This calls to mind St. Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians (4:8) in which the apostle tells the Christians in that city that in Christ, “Already you have all you want!  Already you have become rich!”

The government was not amused by St. Lawrence’s “compliance.”  He was himself executed on August 10, 258 – and ever since that day, the church has honored him, who in the words of St. Ambrose of Milan, “preferred to spend the gold of the church on the poor, rather than to keep it in hand for the persecutor.”

Fast forward to August of our own year, 2022 AD, where our own imperial government, also filled with a lust for domination and hatred against Christians, eager to get its murderous and rapacious fingers on the “treasures” of the people, has announced a plan to hire an army of more than 87,000 new IRS agents and ramp up audits against ordinary citizens.  These agents of the government are, by the way, armed with lethal force.

So let us continue to honor St. Lawrence and follow his example to “obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29).

Apostles, prophets, Martyrs,
And all the noble throng
Who wear the spotless raiment
And raise the ceaseless song – 
For these, passed on before us,
We offer praises due
And, walking in their footsteps,
Would live our lives for You.
~ Horatio Bolton Nelson

They’re Only Following Orders So Shut Your Mouth

That’s the message many of the conservative, police state-loving conservatives are saying about FBI bureaucrats.  It’s only a few bad apples at the top that is the problem, they say.  But the bad apples never, ever have any problem getting 30 or more of their underlings to engage in criminal activity, such as breaking into the former president’s home and ransacking it, even going through his wife’s underwear drawer.  Were Melania’s panties mentioned on the search warrant?  We may never know since the FBI goons did not let Trump’s lawyers keep a copy of the warrant, as reported last night on FOX.  The FBI “apples” are ALL rotten and stink to high heaven.  The cowardly and useless Republicans won’t even hold a press conference demanding that the head of the American Stasi appear before one of their committees to explain himself, so in love are they with anything related to “policing” and “law enforcement.”  They are therefore just as complicit as the ARMED bureaucratic goons who broke into Trump’s house.

What Will 90,000 More IRS Agents Do?

Last year record taxes were collected by the 70,000 or so IRS bureaucrats.  The Stalinists who run the federal government are proposing to hire almost 90,000 more, and equip 70,000 of them with guns and ammo.  They are obviously not needed for mere tax collection, so what’s up?  My guess is that they want this to be the kill shot for the First Amendment.  Free speech for business people has long been suppressed because of implicit threats of tax audits or regulatory extortion.  (Milton Friedman once wrote an article entitled “Free Speech and Free Markets” making this point).  Criticize the regime and it will come down on you “six different ways from Sunday,” as the odious and corrupt New York tyrant Chuck Schumer once said.  This will now be used against anyone who criticizes the Stalinists, not just business executives, starting with audits and threats of audits, and eventually visits by your friendly neighbor IRS goon armed with an AR-15.

Court Historian David McCullough Dies

David McCullough was one of the quintessential establishment court historians. Like the Bushes, Bundys, and Buckleys, he was a member of Skull and Bones (also known as The Brotherhood of Death) at Yale, where he became a “made man” set for life. He was a two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the United States’ highest civilian award. He was the authoritative narrative voice of the Public Broadcasting System’s American Experience series, which is as close to official state-sanctioned history there is. McCullough had been awarded more than 40 honorary degrees.

McCullough, with his clear, resonant voice and reassuring presence personified “history” for millions of Americans much as veteran broadcaster Walter Cronkite personified “news.” It only goes to show you how far a privileged Skull and Bonesman can go if connected. He was in the same elite class as historians Barbara Tuchman, Arthur Schlesinger Jr,, and Margaret Macmillan in terms of career advancement connections due to ancestral ties or political pull of elite establishment institutions.

“Court historians” are the intellectual bodyguards of the State. They shape and defend the “official line” or interpretation on the State’s wars, its presidential regimes, or other key historical events and public policies. As a result they enjoy high esteem and recognition in the mainstream media and academia. As defenders of the status quo they frequently attack and label their critics as “conspiracy theorists,” “revisionists,” “isolationists,” “appeasers,” “anti-intellectuals,” or other boogie men, rather than engage in civil discourse or discussion.

As the late economist/historian Murray N. Rothbard noted:

All States are governed by a ruling class that is a minority of the population, and which subsists as a parasitic and exploitative burden upon the rest of society. Since its rule is exploitative and parasitic, the State must purchase the alliance of a group of “Court Intellectuals,” whose task is to bamboozle the public into accepting and celebrating the rule of its particular State. The Court Intellectuals have their work cut out for them. In exchange for their continuing work of apologetics and bamboozlement, the Court Intellectuals win their place as junior partners in the power, prestige, and loot extracted by the State apparatus from the deluded public. The noble task of Revisionism is to de-bamboozle: to penetrate the fog of lies and deception of the State and its Court Intellectuals, and to present to the public the true history of the motivation, the nature, and the consequences of State activity. By working past the fog of State deception to penetrate to the truth, to the reality behind the false appearances, the Revisionist works to delegitimize, to desanctify, the State in the eyes of the previously deceived public.
