On ScrewTube Dolling Out Strikes to Channels Simply for Having an Interview with Somebody that the Fascist Bastards Had Previously Deep-Sixed from Their Platform (Mostly Over Bullshit)

 The lower profile channels would probably get away with it but if the guest in question is radioactive enough to cause word to get around, who knows, the little fellow might end up getting his comeuppance, as well. Just a matter of time.

On the Israeli Settlements Being a Barrier to Peace

Hopefully I've made myself clear over the years. I strongly oppose Israeli settlements in these disputed territories, not simply because of a perception that it hampers the prospects for peace but also on ethical grounds. Of course now that we've seen how Hamas is still acting 18 years after Israel removed all of their settlements in Gaza, that whole "prospects for peace" argument seems to be withering, doesn't it?

On the Fact that the Muslims Invaded India Countless Times Over the Centuries and Each Time They Slaughtered Hundreds of Thousands Hindus and Perhaps I Missed it but Thus Far I Haven't Heard a Single Thing from the Anticolonial Leftists On this Barbarism Inflicted On the INDIGINOUS People of India

  From historians on these long ignored atrocities - "The Muslim conquests, down to the 16th century, were for the Hindus a pure struggle of life and death. Entire cities were burnt down and the populations massacred, with hundreds of thousands killed in every campaign, and similar numbers deported as slaves. Every new invader made (often literally) his hills of Hindus skulls. Thus, the conquest of Afghanistan in the year 1000 was followed by the annihilation of the Hindu population; the region is still called the Hindu Kush, i.e. Hindu slaughter." Dr. Koenraad Elst, Negation In India"
   "The Mohammedan conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. The Islamic historians and scholars have recorded with great glee and pride the slaughters of Hindus, forced conversions, abduction of Hindu women and children to slave markets and the destruction of temples carried out by the warriors of Islam during 800 AD to 1700 AD. Millions of Hindus were converted to Islam by sword during this period." Will Durant, "The Story of Civilization: Our Oriental Heritage"
   “The massacres perpetuated by Muslims in India are unparalleled in history, bigger than the Holocaust of the Jews by the Nazis; or the massacre of the Armenians by the Turks; more extensive even than the slaughter of the South American native populations by the invading Spanish and Portuguese.” Francois Gautier, "Rewriting Indian History"
   “.....the Muslims could not rule the country except by systematic terror. Cruelty was the norm – burnings, summary executions, crucifixions or impalements, inventive tortures. Hindu temples were destroyed to make way for mosques. On occasion there were forced conversions. If ever there were an uprising, it was instantly and savagely repressed: houses were burned, the countryside was laid waste, men were slaughtered and women were taken as slaves.” Fernand Braudel, "A History of Civilizations"
   “While historical events should be judged in the context of their times, it cannot be denied that even in that bloody period of history, no mercy was shown to the Hindus unfortunate enough to be in the path of either the Arab conquerors of Sindh and south Punjab, or the Central Asians who swept in from Afghanistan…The Muslim heroes who figure larger than life in our history books committed some dreadful crimes. Mahmud of Ghazni, Qutb-ud-Din Aibak, Balban, Mohammed bin Qasim, and Sultan Mohammad Tughlak, all have blood-stained hands that the passage of years has not cleansed..Seen through Hindu eyes, the Muslim invasion of their homeland was an unmitigated disaster.......Their temples were razed, their idols smashed, their women raped, their men killed or taken slaves. When Mahmud of Ghazni entered Somnath on one of his annual raids, he slaughtered all 50,000 inhabitants. Aibak killed and enslaved hundreds of thousands. The list of horrors is long and painful. These conquerors justified their deeds by claiming it was their religious duty to smite non-believers. Cloaking themselves in the banner of Islam, they claimed they were fighting for their faith when, in reality, they were indulging in straightforward slaughter and pillage…” Irfan Husain, "Demons from the Past"
“From the time Muslims started arriving, around 632 AD, the history of India becomes a long, monotonous series of murders, massacres, spoliations, and destructions. It is, as usual, in the name of ‘a holy war’ of their faith, of their sole God, that the barbarians have destroyed civilizations, wiped out entire races.” Alain Daniel, "Histoire de I Indie"

On the Recently Released January 6th Videos Proving that Ole Pelosi and Her Cohorts Took (at Least) Two Takes for that Mike Pence Phone-Call for Her Daughter's January 6th Documentary Film (Why She Was There Shooting a Documentary Prior to Any of the Mayhem Going Down I Still Find Perplexing) - (at Roughly the 46 Minute Mark)

And I so love it how the old bitty amped up the drama in take two, acting all agitated for the camera. Not exactly Barbara Stanwyck in "Double Indemnity" or Susan Hayward in "I Want to Live" but for Capitol Hill, not too shabby.

On Former Democratic Mayor of College Park, Maryland, Patrick Wojahn, Recently Getting Sentenced to 30 Years In Jail for the Possession and Distribution of Massive Amounts of Child Pornography

You might recognize him, the fellow on the right (though, yeah, the other one looks familiar as well, just can't place him).

On the Fact that There Isn't a Single Solitary Virtue-Signaling White Douchebag Currently Pitching for Palestine that Hamas Wouldn't Kill Instantaneously if Given the Chance and Yet Because of the Moronic Ideological Rigidity Oozing from the Pores of These Miseducated Lunatics They Continue Unabated and Incessantly with Their Foolishness

 Hopefully it dawns on 'em at some point, and not when it's too late, either. Preferably. 

Saturday, November 25, 2023

On One of the Main Reasons Why There Were Palestinian Refugees In the First Place In 1947 and '48 Being that the Jews, Unlike Their Arab Opponents, Didn't Mass Slaughter Civilians ("Murder the Jews, Murder Them All" - Thus Spake the Grand Mufti) but Rather Allowed Them to Flee the Danger-Zone

Yeah, the Arabs didn't want Jewish refugees because after their "certain" victory they didn't want to deal with a sizeable Jewish minority in their country (which wouldn't have been Palestine but rather an extension to Iraq or Syria) which would have been unacceptable. So kill 'em first, I guess.

Friday, November 24, 2023

On the Fact that In the Deranged and Surface-Thinking Psyche of Your Run-of-the-Mill Woke Automaton, it Is AOK for Latinos to Flood Over America's Southern Border to Secure Free Shit and Likely Create a Demographic Armageddon but it Was Not Acceptable for Jews to Migrate to Palestine to Escape Not Just Nazi Persecution but Persecution from the Surrounding Arab Countries

Kind of sounds like, fuck the Jews, doesn't it? Certainly does to me.  

On the Fact that There Are Miles and Miles of Ocean-Front Property In Gaza that the Palestinians Could Have Sold Off and Transformed Into Fisheries and/or Resorts but Instead of Engaging In These Types of Plans, a) Torched All the Stuff that Israel Left Behind (When They Vacated Gaza In 2005), b) Murdered Their Political Opponents In Fatah, c) Started Shooting Rockets Made from Dug Up Water Pipes (Water? Who Needs Water?) Into South Israel, d) Constructed a Massive Tunnel System to Plan Their Shit Underground, and e) Smuggled In Large Amounts of Contraband; Weapons and Material Conducive to Making Them

 And hence their brand new book, "How to Make an 'Open-Air Prison'......for Dummies".

On Recently Hearing a Doctor Admit that the Really Intelligent People Don't Go Into Medicine, they Go Into Engineering, Architecture, Astrophysics, Economics, Technology, etc

Yeah, it was probably a humorous attempt at some self-effacing but, honestly, based upon some of my more recent experiences, a kernel of truth, as they say.

On the Possibility that Keith Olbermann's Entire Post Sportscasting Stint Has Been One Long Troll and/or a Dogged Attempt to Set a New World Record for Self-Parodying


Hope so, 'cause if it isn't, we have one of the craziest mo-fos ever presiding amongst us and that ain't comforting.

On the John Podesta Underling Who Once Claimed to Have "Debunked" Pizzagate Recently Getting Arrested for Possession of Child Pornography, Lots of it (Some Miscreant Named Slade Sohmer)


 Some see this as hypocrisy. Me, I see it more as yet another example of some Washington scumbag doing something that he knew was wrong but because he figured that the media wouldn't have any interest in uncovering it (the dude is a Democrat after all) continued to debauch with impunity. Thankfully we still have a few journalists doing actual journalism and so Mr. Sohmer's calculation, a wee-bit off, it seems.

On the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade (Yet Another Homicidal Palestinian Group) Actually Having a Higher Approval Rating than Hamas, a Staggering 80%

  So even worse than Hamas, huh? Or better, not sure how they gauge things over there these days (though, yes, I do have an inkling).

On on One of the Main Reasons Why 75% of the Palestinians Approved of the October 7th Massacre Being that They Enjoyed Witnessing the Israelis Running Away (a Display of Humiliation, I Assume)

Well, I guess that a population which considers suicide bomber to be da' bomb, and who apparently don't mind their POS leaders using them as human shields wouldn't be all that concerned about those who they've been taught to despise since the cradle getting their just deserts. It only makes sense, huh?

On Hundreds of Drooling, Knuckle-Dragging, and Foaming at the Mouth Pro-Palestinian Protestors Attacking the DNC (Yeah, You Heard Me Right, the DNC, Not the RNC) this Week and My Fervent Hope Being that Authorities a) Round Up Every One of These Combustible Ignoramuses, b) Throw Them Into that Washington Gulag for an Indefinite Period of Time, c) Eventually Try Them, and d) Hit Them with a 10 Year Sentence with Zero Possibility of Parole if Convicted

 How else do you want me to think about the most horrific event since 9/11, The Civil War, and Pearl Harbor? I mean, come on.

On "Obama In the Basement"

 While it's obviously not true in the literal sense, gotta think that he's at least in the mixture, no, Mr. D.C.? I'd wager, yeah, myself.

On Biden Trailing Trump 46% to 42% Among the 18 to 34 Demographic, a Segment of the Population that Biden Won by 24 Percentage Points In 2020

Catastrophic to the point where even David Axelrod is suggesting that Biden needs to bow out of 2024. Of course the big problem here is that the Democratic bench remains horrible; Harris, Newsom, Whitmer (even cringier than Harris) etc.. and, yeah, because of that they're even floating around the name, Michelle Obama (preferred pronouns anybody?). Oh well, at least we now know why they stayed in Washington. You just never know, right?

On International (Save of Course for the Middle East, North Africa, Most of Sub-Saharan Africa, Pakistan, China, North Korea, etc.) Transgender Day of Remembrance (Where We Honor Trans People Who've Been Killed Due to "Transphobia")

So how are you celebrating (yeah, I know, it was yesterday, just go with it, OK?)? Me, I'll probably listen to Lola by the Kinks a few times and follow it up with some NFL. Pretty much it.

On Jewish Populations In Muslim Countries - Recent Tallies

  Lebanon - 29, Syria - 4, Iran - 9,200, Iraq - 4, Oman - 0, Yemen - 7, Algeria - 200, Egypt - 10, Libya - 0, Morocco - 2,100, Tunisia - 1,000 -
  Contrast this with the Jewish state of Israel in which 2,100,000 Arabs (84% of whom are Muslim) representing 21% of the population live and have more rights than Muslims posses in virtually all of the surrounding Muslim countries.
  As to why I'm bringing this up, it's certainly not because I'm a down-the-line backer of Israel (I hate Netanyahu, do not support the settlements, and still have a grudge over the U.S.S. Liberty). My goal is strictly to push back against the noxious Israel derangement that's coming from the hard left and certain segments of the Libertarian movement (Scott Horton in particular has disappointed me). They're literally more pissed at Israel than they are at the savages who started this shit (to the point of taking whatever Hamas shits out as gospel), and this was before Israel even fired a bullet!! Yes, we can and should criticize the Israelis but now? Really?  

On it Getting so Bad for Biden that Even SNL (Which Has Been Massaging the Bozo for Three Years) Is Making Sport of the Guy

 Hey, I'm just happy that they're at least trying to be funny again (not Chris Farley, Norm MacDonald, or Phil Hartman caliber of funny but, hey, they're at least punching the time clock and that's a start). That alone is a victory.

On the Likelihood that Biden Wrote that Washington Post Op-Ed (In Which He Opines About the Gaza and Ukraine Wars) Himself

I suppose that it's possible.......Just as long as the dude doesn't have to walk off stage (or other complicated shit) afterwards in that that would totally change the calculus.

On the Fact that if You're Research and Opinions Threaten the Prevailing Wisdom and/or Protected Industries, You'll Likely Be Marginalized and Possibly Even Destroyed

 They play for keeps, these psychopaths, and you had best be prepared for 'em as they're comin', ears pinned back, right over the dark horizon. You'll see.

British Consul to Palestine, William Young, On the Condition of Jews In Palestine During the Egyptian Occupation of it, Referencing the Massacre In Hebron Circa 1834 (Prior to Even the First Jewish Migration In the Late 19th Century)

"Like the miserable dog without an owner he is kicked by one because he crosses his path, and cuffed by another because he cries out - to seek redress he is afraid, lest it bring worse upon him; he thinks it better to endure than to live in the expectation of his complaint being revenged upon him." From a report written in 1839.
  Perhaps I'm wrong but I don't seem to ever recall any imperialist or colonialist being in such a subservient position. I mean, it's almost as if the Jews were the oppressed group and the Arabs the oppressors. If only they had had intersectionality back then, huh?

On the Dozens of Magnificent Waterfalls On Vancouver Island

Here's just a taste, Elk Falls and Della Falls. I'll likely never get there in my life but if you do, at least send me a postcard, K?

On the Red-Pilling of Many Leftist Jews In the U.S.A. and Israel

Yeah, slaughtering babies and randomly decapitating fellow countrymen tends to bring sane people least for a while (you even had Jonathan Greenblatt smoking a peace-pipe, for Christ).

On an Indian by the Name of Joe Medicine Crow (Circa 1950) Auditioning for a Tiny Part In a Hollywood Western and Not Betting the Job Because the Interviewer Told Him that His Nose Was Way too Small

And the director's solution? He hired a bunch of Jews and Italians to play the Indians.......Oh well, better than hiring ultra Caucasion Jeff Chandler to play Cochise in "Broken Arrow", I guess (yes, Chandler was a Jew but his nose was gentile - and, yes, that was a joke).

Sunday, November 12, 2023

On Radical Muslims Accusing the Jews of Controlling the World While Simultaneously Attempting to Spread Sharia Law Far and that They Can Control the World

So basic jealousy, in other words (well, that and a shitload of warmongering psychopathy but who's counting at this point, right?). Gotta' love it.

On Pro-Terrorist Activists Rioting Outside the White House the Other Day, Attempting to Breach the Surrounding Fence and Even Attacking Secret Service Agents and No One In the Media or Government Calling it an, "Insurrection"

And what if hundreds of these vile scumbags were able to get past the gate and rush for the White House? Not sure how many secret service agents are there at any one time or how close the Metropolitan Police are in case of something like this goes down. I get it that the President and his staff have access to more secure quarters downstairs and so if the shits tried to torch the place (the War of 1812 redux) they'd likely be OK but if hundreds of these miscreants stormed the building all at once, man, huh? Hopefully they have some full time snipers cocked and ready to go, 'cause if they don't, this would be a legitimate insurrection (you know, as opposed to some asshole sitting at Pelosi's desk).

Saturday, November 11, 2023

On the Jews Migrating to Palestine (Many of Them Coming from Arab Countries Where They Were Forced to Run for Their Lives In 1948) Being Labeled, Colonizers, but the Arabs Entering Palestine from Syria, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt Are Seen as, Indigenous

And the Jews were the underdogs back then......but not any longer. Oh well, it's what you get for being successful, I guess.

On the Nashville Shooter's Manifesto Finally Being Uncovered and, Gee, What a Surprise, the Entire Deranged Missive Is Littered with Anti-White Vitriol Through the Use of Low-IQ Stock Bromides Like, White Privilege

   The media could have easily gotten a hold of this disgusting screed months ago but because the murderer was some indoctrinated tranny, a group of people that the media and many politicians seemingly feel the need to protect at any cost, even if it involves public safety, they sat on it. Journalistic malfeasance at its worst.

Friday, November 10, 2023

On Obama Never Having Used the Word, Occupation, During His Eight Years as President (In Regards to Gaza and Israel) but Now that He's Out of Office Displaying No Problem Whatsoever In Using it (Even After the Slaughter of Over 1,000 Israelis at the Hands of Hamas Barbarians)

   And what exactly is he referring to when he says, occupation? The Israelis left Gaza almost 20 years ago. Yeah, they have a blockade but that's just because the Palestinians were smuggling in armaments and material that can be used to make the damned shit. And even in Judea and Samaria there's isn't a huge Israeli presence (checkpoints mainly). 
   As for the settlements in Judea, I probably agree with Obama on that. Constructing communities in disputed territory isn't a good idea and certainly doesn't bring about peace, but that's not what he was referring to, I'm pretty sure. Of course if we had an honest media here, journalists would have asked for clarification but being that we don't nobody did. Per usual.

On a Nation (In this Case, Israel) Being so Inept at Genocide that They've Allowed the Specified Population to Increase Five Fold During These Supposed Acts of Annihilation

So every time that one of these terror symps brings this ludicrous accusation up, simply dust off this inconvenient fact and suggest that they go pound sand. Granted, you likely haven't accomplished anything in terms of changing that jerkoff's mind but you never know who's listening and if it's someone on the fence maybe you've changed theirs.

Wednesday, November 8, 2023

On Over 1,000 Jews Getting Slaughtered Last Month with the End Result Being........................More Jew Hatred?

And no one seems to be talking about "hate speech" any longer. Hell, you even had Biden's doltish press secretary (when questioned about this issue) suddenly bring up the importance of free speech (this after three years of never once hearing anybody in the Biden administration utter those words in succession before). I wonder why the sudden change (and by, wonder, I of course mean, it's as obvious as the nose on your damned face).

On Decent Liberals (Center-Left, One Might Say) from the Middle 20th Century Ultimately Rejecting Communism When They Learned About the Atrocities of Stalin and Mao

Yeah, this was when the left believed in rational debate and open inquiry and had something resembling an emergency brake on their ideology. If only we could get a wee-bit of that back, would be nice, wouldn't it?

On Being Forced Into Murdering the Truth Simply to Salve Some Idiotic, Poorly-Conceived, and Phony-Baloney Social Justice Precept

 Reagan warned us all that if fascism ever came to America it would come in the form of liberalism. He just didn't know that these liberal peeps would all be escapees from an insane asylum. Then again, who could have predicted that?

On 1970s British Cutie-Pie, Susan George


Always been a sucker for overbites (from Gene Tierney to Courteney Cox) and Susan's is pretty close to perfect. And the rest of her, that ain't bad, either.

On the Fact that There Are Millions of Stateless People In this World (the Kurds, Rohingya, Hmong, Bidoon, Roma, etc.) and for Some Strange Reason it's Only the Palestinians Who the Progressive Idiocracy Seems to Lose Their Shit Over

 I wonder why. I mean, it couldn't possibly be because the Jews are involved, could it (he said, as coyly as he could muster)?

On Being the Lone Gringo In the Price Rite Produce Department the Other Day

I'll take, "Things that Rich Assholes Like Anderson Cooper, Chris Hayes, and Others Who Champion  this Unending Immigration from Latin-America Will Likely Never Encounter Themselves and Therefore Colors Their Magnanimity In Quite an Unfavorable Shade", for a thousand, Alex.

On Math Problems for Youngsters In Gaza and the West Bank (i.e, Judea and Samaria)

I've been told that one of them is, "You have 13 Jews walking down the street and 4 of them get blown up by a suicide bomber, how many Jews are left?"......Oh well, at least they're teaching math (you know, as opposed to gender identity, preferred pronouns, gay sex, micro-aggressions, critical race theory, white rage, etc.). Give 'em credit for that, I guess.

On the Claim by Psychologist and Data Analytics Expert, Robert Epstein, that During the Past Two Presidential Elections Google Sent Out Hundreds of Thousands of "Get-Out-the-Vote" Reminders to Registered Democrats and Zero to Republicans

And that's just the tip of the iceberg as this same big tech behemoth also fucked around with the algorithms. They put good stories about Hillary on the first few pages of a search result while anything positive about Trump was relegated to page 8 and beyond. And the same with negative news, bad stories about Hilary went to the back of the bus while damaging shit about Trump got plastered all over pages one and two. As for how many votes this tactic may have changed, Epstein claims that it's probably in the millions and, so, yeah, if Trump wants to be serious about this issue, this seems to be the mother-load.......Now if we can only get the guy to be serious......

On Whether I Would Hire One of Those Scumbags Who Took to the Streets Cheering On the Slaughter of Israelis On October 7th (a Debate Question that's Currently Burning Up Twitter)

Well, being that I'm a free speech absolutist and detest the cancelling of people, coming out with an emphatic, no, would probably color me seem hypocritical. So, after a great deal of thinking I've come up with this. It depends on the resume. If the Hamas-loving applicant has a better resume than the non-Hamas-loving applicants, I'll take a chance on him or her but if it's even I'll probably go with the non-Hamas-hating crowd. And if I do hire the Hamas-lover, the instructions provided will be clear; "DO NOT CAUSE DISRUPTIONS, 'cause if you do you will be terminated stat. And, no, this is not to say that you can't voice an opinion if the subject comes up during lunch (for example). Just don't be an asshole or incendiary. Have I made myself clear?"......Sound fair? Hope so, 'cause I can't do any better.

Friday, November 3, 2023

On a New Sienna College Poll Showing that Two-Thirds of New Yorkers Blame President Biden for the Migrant Crisis

And you know what, a lot of them will probably still vote for the cork-soaker regardless, that conditioned/ingrained/gaslit these blue state people are. Hope that I'm wrong but like with anything, I'll believe it when I see it.

On the Fact that In 2022 There Were 1,305 Religious Hate Crimes Directed at Jews and Only 205 Directed at Muslims, a Ratio of 6.36 to 1 -

And even when you control for population (Muslims are 1.3% of the population and Jews are 2.4%) the ratio is still a robust 3.45 to 1. So, yeah, when the idiot press secretary tried to pump up anti-Muslim hate crimes and suggest that they were disproportionate with other populations, she was wrong yet again.

Thursday, November 2, 2023

On the Pro-Palestinian Battle-Cry, "From the River (Jordan) to the Sea (Mediterranean)"

I'm trying to figure out what that might look like; another Jewish genocide, nonstop pogroms, ethnic cleansing (put all the Jews in boats and point them to Europe), allowing the Jews to remain but coercing them to reassume a dhimmi status, forced conversions, Armageddon (AKA, WW3) - outcomes like this, I'm assuming. And does anybody truly think that these barbarians can somehow manage a $565 billion dollar economy and not have all of Western Palestine (you know, that area between the river and the sea) look like fucking Gaza? Careful what you wish for, idiot college kids, careful what you wish for.

On RFK Jr. Coming Out In Favor of Slavery Reparations

I almost endorsed this guy a few months ago but something told me to hold back and save it, because as much as I liked a lot of what he was saying back then (on civil liberties, medical tyranny, crony capitalism, regulatory capture, foreign policy, the war in Ukraine, etc.), I also remember some of his crazier notions from previous decades (on climate change, welfare, etc.), and decided to wait. And sure enough out he come with one of the worst ideas from the liberal playbook ( Yes, I still might vote for the guy because the Democrats and Republicans are both so putrid. I just won't do it with as much enthusiasm as I had before.

On Three of the POS Hamas Leaders Being Billionaires -

Gonna' go out on a limb here and wager that none of these scumbags have penciled-in becoming a suicide bomber themselves. Just not enough money in it (though, yes, the 72 virgins were tempting, I'm sure).

On the Fact that Hamas Uses its Own Civilians as Human Shields In What Could Only Be Described as a Sick Public Relations Strategy and the American Media Apparently Doesn't Have an Iota of a Problem with it

And they've also apparently bought into this low-IQ intersectionality bullshit and believe that the failures of the Palestinians and the successes of Israel are entirely due to Jewish oppression and not at all to do with the theocratic and bloodthirsty leadership of Hamas (you know, that whole zero-sum game). Of course, it's also conceivable that they don't believe in any of this crap and are simply acting the fool for different reasons (antisemitism, $$$, an overarching ideology of sorts, etc.). THAT......I wouldn't rule out, either.
