Not Serious People, Not Serious About War

Perusing the headlines, I saw Joe Biden had announced a green initiative for military vehicles. > US President Joe Biden has announced a “process” is underway to make every vehicle in the country’s massive military “climate friendly,” adding that “we’re spending billions of dollars to do it” during an Earth Day celebration on Friday. This is one of those failures that demonstrates, no matter how far down the path of senility dementia Joe has traveled, that the people in the white house, almost…

What if They Meant What They Said?

One thing that is apparent is that no-one on the "Russia Man Bad" side of things has even begun to credit that Putin and the Russians may, more rather than less, mean precisely what they said as to their goals. Colbert apparently was mocking the Russian re-organization over the weekend, eminently predictable if you took them at their word as to their goals, as "Oh, we just declare we won and go home," and western media analysts were worried that some form of victory in Mariupol would give the…

I was mostly going to leave this be. Hell, I barely heard about it as I don't usually care what Klavan and the powerline gang are saying, but "rebuttals" came up in my recommended vids, specifically one by Shad [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V56dVFBCQcc], who occasionally has interesting things to say, but man, the soy is real and he still swallows the mainstream narrative.

(All together now) They Hate You

Both Bradford Walker [https://empiresmustfall.blogspot.com/2019/04/narrative-warfare-examined-good-fight.html] and the Z Man [http://thezman.com/wordpress/?p=17034]cover the recent TV spot saying it's OK to punch Nazis. The one that was quickly pulled, from what I've heard. A video with a bunch of thuggish looking white guys smashing and flipping cars (1), wearing not-yellow red traffic vests (2), with a smirking guy resembling Richard Spencer waving his hands as if orchestrating it (3).
