Sunday lifting thread.

I haven’t done one of these for a while, so time to report on all the gainz or lack thereof. There hasn’t been a lifting thread because there hasn’t been much lifting due to moving house and initial renovation efforts. We moved house on a Tuesday and I went to the gym the day before, but I quickly realised that the gym was going to be off the table while the nightmare of shifting was ongoing.

This week I returned in a state of morbid trepidation. At my age, (46), you deal with the fact that the gainz are extremely fleeting. You lose it much much faster than you gain it. I was already having trouble with the squat before I took the moving break and I had decided to deload 10kg. So I went from 87.5kg back down to 77.5kg. When I came back to the gym I hit 80kg and it was a struggle. A big struggle.

Friday hawt chicks & links – The whoa! Phat edition.

The big news this week is that president Trump sat down with Whoa! Phat in Singapore in the biggest diplomacy development in the Pacific Rim since the end of hostilities in the Korean War. Last September the left were howling in contrived fear that Trump was going to end up destroying the world because he wouldn’t give Whoa! Phat what he wanted. Now that Phat has come crawling and begging to be included at the diplomacy table the left are howling in contrived outrage that Trump wasted this opportunity by not demanding enough. So before they were upset because Trump was going too fast but now they’re upset because he’s going too slowly.


Also, when dealing with North Korea, slowly is good.

We cannot burgle Asia, and steal China’s most vital client state from their orbit overnight. It would be Prague Spring or Hungary 1956 all over again.

The Norks need to be demilitarized and unshackled, bit by bit, so that China doesn’t have cause to intervene until it’s a fait accompli.

Anything else is merely a disaster for the people of Norkistan, and a potential trigger to fan the Cold War into a hot one.

Telling me, therefore, that things are going slowly, is probably the best news there could be, for everyone concerned.

More links and pics after the break.

The rising Saxon rage in one photo.

The alt news over the past couple of weeks has been dominated by the unjust and corrupt arrest of UK activist Tommy Robinson for the supposed crime of reporting on an ongoing trial of Asian rape gangs somewhere in what used to be known as Merry England.

On the weekend protesters in support of Robinson clashed with police outside Whitehall. It didn’t go too well for the cops.

Judeo Christian values.

An article on my feed this morning initially got me rather excited. I had to sit down and place a wet hanky on my head.

Italian monastery to house right-wing populist leader school.

A remote 800-year-old hilltop religious retreat in Italy is to become the latest in a wave of right-wing academies attempting to shape the next generation of populist leaders in Europe …

Emphasising the importance of Western values, the Trisulti monastery is one of a number of such projects in Europe …

Wow. I mean, what’s not to like? Western values? Ancient 800 year old Italian religious retreat? Right wing academies? I mean, it’s just so delicious. I bet this is going to be awesome.

That’s what I thought at least, until …
