You can’t stay neutral anymore

The Other McCain has written an article about his ancestor who fought for the Americans in the revolutionary war, and who looked suspiciously like the late Heath Ledger. McCain makes note of the fact that the American rebels were constantly attempting to recruit their countrymen, while the British were actively engaged in preventing this from happening.

On the afternoon of May 29, 1780, after a pursuit of nearly 150 miles, Tarleton’s dragoons caught up with Buford’s rear guard in the vicinity of Lancaster, S.C., near the North Carolina border. The fight that ensued was a decisive British victory, in which the Americans claimed their troops were slaughtered after they surrendered, so that the battle became known as the “Waxhaws Massacre.” The result of Tarleton’s victory thus proved a disaster for the British in two ways:

  • Reports of the “massacre” served as a rallying cry for the Patriot cause in South Carolina, with a desire for revenge inspiring men to join the cause who might have stayed out of the war.
  • His easy victory led Tarleton to become overconfident.

As the year 2020 draws to a close, another rallying cry is beginning to be heard around that nation as people openly pick sides and disavow those who are attempting to remain bystanders on the sidelines.

Friday hawt chicks & links – The wait and see edition

The Friday hawt chicks & links is late, by about two weeks. We are living in tumultuous times and your humble author has been keeping his head down and getting on with things. So, not much time to capture the links and hawtness goodness that you all crave for. But here we are and we will see if it has been worth the wait.

The biggest drama is the disputed United States election. As I no longer get my news from the mainstream media I have had to rely on other sources to pick through the surplus information. My go to sites are Vox Day and Nourishing Obscurity, and on Gab it is Roissy and Neon Revolt. Sure there are other sources that are worthwhile, but these are whom I choose to put my trust. Not only that but they either do the very hard work of sifting through all of the noise or they have people doing that for them. Either way, it is a win for me.

Trump is fighting hard. One thing is for sure and that is over the next eight weeks either the truth will come out or it will be buried. After this time there is not much to hope for. So this is the moment of watching and praying. Both sides now need to push everything into the middle because the side that comes in first runner-up is liable to pay a severe penalty, justifiable or not. These are games for the big men but I suspect that some are only now beginning to understand just how big the stakes are; they will be coming to the worrying realisation that they are in over their heads.

So sit back with the cold November rain rattling your windows, the wind blowing a fateful moan down your chimney and your faithful hound tensing at every gust, and contemplate the many tidbits that await you when you click to see more below. Life is worth living.

WordPress don’t need no conservatives

The Conservative Treehouse is being deplatformed by WordPress.

What was our violation?  After ten years of brutally honest discussion, opinion, deep research and crowdsourcing work -with undeniable citations on the events we outline- there is no cited violation of any term of service because CTH has never violated one.

The WordPress company is not explaining the reason for deplatforming because there is no justifiable reason for it.  At the same time, they are bold in their position. Perhaps this is the most alarming part; and everyone should pay attention. They don’t care.

WordPress is giving them 6 days to get the hell out of Dodge. Mind you, it’s 6 more days’ warning than Roissy ever got.

Don’t look down

The other day I caught a documentary on tennis player Jimmy Connor’s epic run and last hurrah at the 1991 US Open. I have never been much of a fan of tennis but I could appreciate the head to head battle that it occasionally is while watching the footage. But there were a couple of things that stood out to me.

First of all, Connors is a real prick who did anything to win. Anything. I have to admire that. Connors is good at being a man, and he was spectacular at being competitive and turning that into a tool for winning when he didn’t have a right to be victorious. He used the crowd to his advantage, and he used conflict, often invented, to rev up himself and by default the spectators, inevitably bringing them onto his side of the court. Even though everyone hated Jimmy, in the end you wanted him to win.

This is why prog women are so angry all the time

There used to be a video gaming site called The Escapist which was popular for about three weeks in 2007. It was a Marxist progressive infested shithole before most of us even began to understand what that meant. Apart from gaming it attempted to cover stuff called “popular culture” which was code for, ‘gradually infect your audience with strange terminology like “white privilege” and “intersectionality”, whatever the fuck that means.’ One of its popular culture attempts was movie reviews which were covered in cartoon video form by a guy calling himself “Movie Bob”, whose real name is Bob Chipman.

In 2014 when the gaming shit was going down Movie Bob went all-in on #GamerGate for the progs. At the time, I went all-in on #GamerGate for the heroes of the revolution. Movie Bob would call somebody like me insufficiently evolved. I would call someone like Movie Bob a basement dwelling fat version of Gollum. So we’re about equal.

The Other McCain did a piece on Movie Bob where it turns out that in the last few years Movie Bob has outed himself as a male feminist.

Trump will win

“Trump will win.” That is my answer when someone brings up the recent and fraudulent US election. If someone is a card carrying believer in the MSM, this statement comes as a slap across the face with a wet face mask. Curiously, they do not laugh, these true believers. They go red in the face. They clench their fists. They splutter and mutter, and they attempt to revert to ridicule but their first reaction obliterates that escape.

Because they are unsure. They do not know what is happening.

From other people I get a different kind of reaction. First there is surprise, and they ask me to explain further. So I tell them the truth. I tell them that the Democrats put no effort at all into winning the election. All I have to do is to mention Biden’s few solitary speeches to empty parking lots from behind his face mask. Compare that to Trump’s unrelenting schedule of up to three rock star conferences a day, to packed and exuberant crowds.

Site Issues

There have been some issues with the website over the past few weeks which I want to mention briefly. My site uses a WordPress skin but it is privately hosted so I cannot fall foul of the woke brigade. Last week the site went down for about 12 hours which was caused by increased traffic. It hurts to be popular. So we increased the server load for the site which costs me money but that’s okay as I don’t do internet begging.

As an aside, I cannot for the life of me understand the mentality of bloggers who start up a site, work to make it popular and then suddenly start demanding money for their services. Nobody asked you to set up a website. So don’t start moaning after the fact and trying to guilt trip your readers into giving you money, you worthless cheapskates.

Anyway, yesterday and today the site went down a couple of times again. This one we’re not so sure about as the traffic numbers are the same. It could be something innocent or it could be nefarious. Either way hopefully we’ll have it fixed soon.

UPDATE:

It has been identified as DOS attacks. So someone doesn’t like me. Boo hoo.

Makes me feel good. Means that I am on target, as usual.

Quitting all mainstream media

The events of the past week have caused a change in my daily habits. It has long been my habit to read The Australian newspaper, or at least glance through it. Once I would have counted it as being on the right. At best it was probably conservative back when that word meant something, a deceit for sure, but a comfortable one.

I cannot read that newspaper anymore, not after seeing what it has written leading up to this 2020 US election and its obvious and pathetic efforts to proclaim the Democrat usurper the winner. I suppose that I have educated myself over these years and now the lies and untruths are simply too much to endure. I cannot abide the lies that these mainstream media outlets disseminate.

In fact, I have not opened the website of The Australian since last Wednesday. And I do not intend to ever look at it again.

Requested guidance for a young man

I received a letter from a reader, which I will as always keep confidential. However, as I was replying I thought that my reply could be of benefit to others in a similar situation. I will not post the reader’s letter but a part of it will be beneficial so as to put my response in context.

My question to you is how can I move forward as a man given my past? I would like help from maybe a priest or a pastor but the left has shut down all churches and places of worship in the United States essentially, and I believe I need to be guided in the right direction. I know if you have committed one sin in the eyes of God, you have committed all sin and you merely have to ask for forgiveness since that’s the reason Jesus died for us, but I feel there is something missing. So far I have been hitting the gym and lifting weights, and focusing on my job to pay for school and my school work. Do you think there is anything more I can be doing to better myself than I am already attempting to do?

My response to him below the cut.

Stick a fork in the USA

When a man is in a bad relationship there may come a time when he is forced to an end point by external pressures. In these heretical times that is usually a divorce brought by the woman because her short term feelings are no longer satisfied. In any case, for the man in question that moment is simultaneously the worst time and the best time. It is the worst time because disloyalty and deception on such a personal scale is devastating. But it is also the best time because now he finally knows the real lay of the land and he can delude himself no longer. It is the time to begin to rebuild in God’s image.

However, many many men continue to delude themselves long past the time when it is obvious to all who choose to glance at it. Many men also do not learn from the hard lesson and they double down in an attempt to cloister themselves in warm feelings of comfort, hearkening back to a time when they once assumed that they were happy. Some men do not have the strength to face the abyss where they momentarily find themselves and they turn to external vices to cope, ironically anchoring themselves in the abyss forever. In short, there are many false trails and traps along these pathways. To keep your head while you are embraced in a cyclone of emotions is a hard task. Yet hard tasks are what we are here for.
