It’s been an heroic week in many aspects, notably Clementine Ford’s radical self destruction, which I must say did much to warm the dark cockles of my black heart. But it is not all good news as Castalia House, the publishing company founded by Vox Day was thrown off Amazon this week in what appears to be the actions of a rogue SJW employee.
UPDATE: Amazon can’t even find the account information. It looks like whoever was responsible actually wiped all the data.
The good news is that as of yesterday evening they’re back up, but the question remains exactly how long it will be until they try the same ploy again, only next time it may have the backing of someone at management level with significantly more clout.
Of course, this is precisely why we established the Arkhaven and Catalia Direct stores, because we knew better than to trust Amazon’s assurances that it would keep its SJWs under control. If you want to show support for Castalia and its authors, you can either write to Amazon and complain about this unwarranted action or pick up a print, ebook, or audiobook from one of our direct stores.
I am on the Castalia mailing list for this specific reason, and to be honest if you’re a fan of this blog you should subscribe to me as well. I keep a note of each email address of current subscribers so that if I’m taken down in the future I’ll be able to rebuild with my core base by sending out a message notifying everyone of what would be my new web site address. So if you’re not subscribed to me then hit that button on the sidebar and get with the program.
Senator Fraser Anning has written an original article this week for my buddies at XYZ Magazine. This is a big coup for them and I’m delighted that they’re starting to make real progress in the alternative Australia media. Of course, it’s also great for me as I must have had a few hundred articles published over there by now.
The Liberal Party and the Overton Window.
The “acceptable” window of political discourse in the days of Sir Robert Menzies, Jack McEwan and Arthur Calwell, which was reflected by not only by the media of the day but also in the views of the vast majority of Australians, has been shifted radically to the left since that time. The net effect of this is that a politician, such as myself, expressing what would have been considered moderate mainstream views in the 1960s is now called a “racist” and a “right-wing extremist” by other politicians and the media alike. But equally, what would have been considered extremist Marxist ideas in the 1960s such as the denial of free speech, wealth redistribution, wholesale Third World immigration and “gender fluidity,” are now supported by mainstream political parties and even governments.
If you’re Australian then this is a really important piece for you to read.
A nod to the times when men were real men and toxic masculinity an unknown concept still lodged in the unformed brains of feminist harridans waiting to be born.
If you want to know why nobody gives a damn about magazines like Esquire anymore, it’s because the progressive politics of the 21st century forbid any sympathy for the kind of people who like NASCAR. Everything in big-league journalism now is about left-wing politics, more or less, and because North Carolina rednecks probably aren’t too excited about the Left’s agenda of open borders and transgender rights and all that, there is zero possibility a latter-day Tom Wolfe could get any New York-based magazine to publish an article like “The Last American Hero.”
The whole thing is basically a celebration of toxic masculinity, as the Gender Studies majors would say. Junior Johnson was not one of these “sensitive” modern guys, but a big muscular fellow who thrived on ferocious competition in one of the most masculine of sports.
Israeli scientists reckon they have the cure for cancer.
“We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” said Dan Aridor, of a new treatment being developed by his company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), which was founded in 2000 in the ITEK incubator. AEBi developed the SoAP platform, which provides functional leads to very difficult targets.
Yeah, we’re never going to get rid of the Boomers.
This week the UN declared that boat turn backs official do not work and have no effect at all. Also in the news this week, Italy sees migrant numbers plummet after nationalist policies take hold.
Italy’s nationalist-populist government is hailing new numbers that show immigration into the country has plummeted dramatically within months of the government taking power, due to its refusal to accept NGO rescue boats of migrants coming from Africa.
Il Giornale reports that official data show that in January 2018, 3,176 migrants landed on the Italian coast via boats. But in January 2019 that number was just 155.
Apparently those Christians who hold to biblical teachings regarding women in the church need to get the hell out of Dodge. Myself, I agree with the sentiment that those cretins advocating this nonsense shouldn’t let the church door hit their you-know-what on the way out.
There are three facts we need to deal with in regards to the issue:
- Jesus chose men as the Twelve and used women in different roles.
- The Bible defines certain roles for men and women, both in the church and in marriage.
- The prior facts are offensive to modern political correctness.
It is, of course, the third item that is truly at issue, for that is the one that drives liberals* to reinterpret not only the meaning but the facthood of the first two. That’s fine, we’ve all heard the arguments. Jones is correct that the debate is over. One must either choose modern political correctness** as a guide to the holy, or one must choose the word of God. Make your choice and live by it.
A 3 year bachelor degree to become a paramedic? Yep, it’s a scam.
If you have 2 or 4 years to work for your paramedic degree, which was suddenly required, why on God’s green earth wouldn’t you either get a nursing degree at either ADN or BSN level, tripling your pay and expanding your work opportunities a thousand-fold, or just gut it out a few more years after a bachelor’s, to become a P.A. or M.D.?
Credentialism keeps the education mafia in clover.
PPPPS Trump tweeted today about Venezuela:
Spoke today with Venezuelan Interim President Juan Guaido to congratulate him on his historic assumption of the presidency and reinforced strong United States support for Venezuela’s fight to regain its democracy….
1:58 pm – 30 Jan 2019
….Large protests all across Venezuela today against Maduro. The fight for freedom has begun!
1:58 pm – 30 Jan 2019
Does Trump fail to realize that the same justifications for leveraging American Deep State power to insert a puppet into the Venezuelan presidency could be used against him?
Yep. Apparently the EU is doing the same thing, that is interfering in another country’s election. Hang on, do I hear Russian collusion??
It’s a moral disgrace when the EU Parliament, which lectures the world on the need to respect the rule of law, uses legal language to tell lies about the legality of the situation in Venezuela, and to destroy that legality.
Exciting news from France: Marine le Pen is the country’s new president. After the Macron regime plunged the country into political crisis, Mrs Le Pen took the oath of office on Place de la Concorde on Friday before a small crowd of gilets jaunes (yellow vests) specially assembled – with the TV cameras – for the occasion.Proclaiming that she was acting according to Article 7 of the Constitution of the 5th Republic, Mrs Le Pen announced that Emmanuel Macron is no longer in office. To be sure, the government and civil service, the police and the armed forces all continue to operate normally, and Mr Macron continues to work in the Elysée Palace as usual, while Mrs Le Pen is under investigation for financial irregularities. But as she has received official recognition from both Russia and China, she has now become the legitimate president of France.
Of course, this fictitious scenario is ridiculous. But it is no more ridiculous than the recognition of Juan Guaido as president of Venezuela, voted by the European Parliament on January 31, one week after the recognition of him by US President Donald Trump.
