Soy Pacification + SM Review-Preview 86

The Soy Meme is a good one. Wagner Clemente Soto's Twitter photo collection of 'effects of too much soy in the diet' is a fun one to cruise through. This has snowballed into more references, images and jokes. One of the more recent ones was that Moldylocks the antifa porn girl had a Soyfriend, not a boyfriend. Brilliant.

It is a joke and a meme, and like the successful ones, works because there is a foundation of truth. Soy does mess with estrogen and testosterone. Soy is a popular substitute for meat. Soy is in Asian cuisine that the SWPLs cite as their one reason to support immigration. It does pacify men by making them a touch more feminine. Physiognomy is real and soy does seem to have an effect.

Soy is not on its own. There is context. Soy's ubiquitous status in lefty pushed food reminds me of BPAs being in receipts and plastics with the government having no problem with it. This is similar to the birth control pill being so widespread that traces of it is in public water. Same for antidepressants, which cause weight gain and lowers sex drive and aggression.

Add to this the weird push for transgenderism with a hyper-focus by the media on boys in skirts. Dope them up with hormones young, no worries, say the media. I would add the glorification of marijuana legalization while simultaneously still treating tobacco like poison. Weed also messes with your T levels. An obese population fits this idea as well.

If these things all have elite blessing, then the social engineering becomes clear that they want a chemically pacified population, especially a chemically pacified male population. An elite wants that when they are worried more about internal conflict and challenges to their rule rather than ginning up men to fight an outside force.

Forget the conspiracy, just look at the patterns. It's a tapestry. It has a goal: securing current elite rule from any challenges.

Last week I wrote on how California's immigration and the marriage between FIRE/Tech and the Democrats created the current apartheid that the media is bemoaning. Weimerica Weekly covered adult day camps.

This week I will cover the odd way SWPL culture acts as an unconscious protection system. Weimerica Weekly is going to cover the conundrum of 'how many Obamas' for the Left. The curious lack of Democrats standing out from November 2016 to today is obvious if you look at the Left's system and its human inputs.

WW1 - The Nivelle Offensive

At this point one hundred years ago, America was entering WW1, the French were starting a wave of mutinies (more like strikes by soldiers) and the Nivelle Offensive was lurching into failure.

Despite roughly three years of ineptitude, the French from Nivelle on down to the lowest commissioned officer thought if they shelled the Germans enough, they would not hold their lines. The sad thing is that the French had poor recon, the Germans had switched to their flexible defense in depth and the underground tunnels and rooms of the Germans made the shelling by the artillery ineffective.

The French waited maybe a few minutes after the artillery stopped and sent out the troops to march into what they thought were decimated German defensive positions. The French advanced slow despite the Germans abandoning their most forward lines. No man's land was still hell with barbed wire and chewed up earth. Eventually the French walked into German machine gun nests. Some French troops even passed underground chambers that they knew nothing about, so that the Germans could then fire on them from two directions and trap them.

When the Germans counterattacked, the French were thrown into chaos. Their saving grace was that the French artillery could continue shelling and pin other Germans down and prevent them from joining the attack. Even the introduction of tanks did not help. The French tanks were lighter than the British ones, and were taken out by German artillery, creating colorful burst of flames in the grey and brown muck. Some tanks were not as long as the trenches they were to roll over, therefore they fell into the trench.

In that first day of the offensive, the French gained maybe a hundred or two hundred yards of territory. Germans had stopped them and inflicted many more casualties on the French than the French ever expected. The French mutinies were with good reason. While dozens of mutineers were shot by Petain who took over for Neville, Neville was sacked, troops were given more rest and an entirely new strategy was formed.

Odd Take On China, Trump + the NORKs

If we rewind time to just after the election, we can see the media getting all flustered by Trump's call to Taiwan and his bombast with regards to China. Less than six months later, and there is chatter about Chinese cooperation and even friendliness with the USG noise around North Korea. Trump's dangling out there positive trade deal outcomes, which is opposite of what he campaigned on but after the Syria missile strike but no ground troops declaration, anything goes.

What's a different way to look at this but not from the American perspective? China's entire 21st century game is managing American decline. They want to use economics to eventually force USG to bow to its desires. It is a long game. China has also been snuggling up with Russia, Iran and others to form a good bloc as a counterweight to USG. it also is selfish because as long as Russia is around, Russia acts as a first meal for USG to swallow and digest before turning to China.

USG has its Red and Blue Empires, and it is obvious Blue Empire has been moving to use China against the Red Empire for years. The Clinton admin kicked over military secrets to the ChiComs, brought them into the WTO, gave them most favored nation trading status and locked China into the mutually assured economic destruction compact that Niall Ferguson calls "Chimerica". Blue thinks it can bide its time and subvert China to eventually get enough elites to call for political liberalization.

China has built up its military but still is a bit of a paper tiger. This is why they are trying to swoop the South China Sea via diplomacy only; they have to. One thing it could do to deflect Blue Empire's advances is cooperate with Red Empire right now. China has to see that the Generals and Red Empire have hitched their wagon to the Trump train. In this moment if Trump is of a different feather than normal politicians, China could create a relationship with Red Empire with cooperation on the NORKs.

The NORKs have nukes. The Clinton admin decided to not use famines as a means to force the NORKs to give up their entire program in exchange for food. The world gave just enough aid to keep the Kims in power. No regime change there. The NORKs are useful in our Godfather Protection Racket as it keeps the Japanese and South Koreans attached to us. 

The opportunity for China is to cooperate with the Red Empire side of USG and take out Kim and end the nuclear program, but install a regime of their making. China keeps its vassal but now one they firmly control. China can use this new state as an experiment to rebuild an entire nation. Ghost cities and spending, plus maybe soem Korean war brides for lonely Chinese men. America gets to puff its chest and say it made the world safer. Red Empire still has an adversary to scare the South Koreans and Japanese with but not a nuclear armed one. 

Suddenly Trump looks like a maestro and has removed the pesky, annoying Kim wart in the Pacific, maintaining the illusion that the Empire is doing fine in Asia. Combine this with any potential detente with Russia, and the madman the media scared America with looks like the global dealmaker that he pitched himself to be.

China makes friends with Red Empire. The Blue Empire dies a little inside realizing that the ChiComs are onto their game 100% and securing sovereignty. This is an odd take but we live in interesting times. Anything is possible.

Weimerica Weekly - Adult Day Camps

New Weimerica Weekly is up at Social Matter. This one starts with a note on the Battle of Berkeley. The connection of Nathan Damigo (sic?) and the Antifa Porn girl is symbolic of just how degraded the situation has become but also the task at hand for those wishing to save something. I then cover adult day camps because what's more Weimerican than going to Camp No Counselors at age 30?

Devalued Forgiveness

Easter has come and gone. Easter is the culmination of the season of Lent where Jesus' sacrifice for our sins is remembered and celebrated. It is a funny thing to ponder now: sin, forgiveness and sacrifice. This is the YOLO culture. We live in the no judgment society. Forgiveness is easily uttered. As Christianity has withered, so have these subjects. It is not exactly the faith that has devalued these things but the people that live the faith.

There is a common American news ritual now. A horrible crime is committed. Even before the perpetrator is caught, the news goes to the family of the victim for a statement. Rather than keep their mouths shut, they utter the phrase "We forgive the killer". This can floor the viewer of local news or cause others to roll their eyes at the idiot Churchianity types uttering "we forgive these murdering rapists".

One of the worst instances of this was the wife of a pastor in Indianapolis being brutally murdered and raped (while rpegnant) in front of her toddler. This article is from months after when her pastor husband discussed forgiveness. Even before the criminals were caught, the pastor was rolling out on camera talking forgiveness. It was strange to see such reflexive, "I am holy, I forgive you unknown killer of my wife and unborn child".

It was an example of how many Christians have forgotten was forgiveness means. They forgive instinctively without any consideration for the concept of remorse. It could be a status bump to forgive what many would consider unforgiveable. Read the link above and see how the pastor made it all about him not holding onto the horrible feelings of anger. In the sin and horrible act on his family, there were multiple parties, not just his feelings.

This happens even after bigger events than a single murder like terrorism. The forgiveness is easily given and reveals how cheap and devalued it is. What is the awesome power of forgiveness when its spoken as if by a robot? It is common to see and hear this in the news spoken by those wonderful evangelicals that are so devout.

As descendants of the Prots, they come from that line that destroyed the idea of ritual confession. "See kids, only God knows if you're truly remorseful. Going to some silly priest will not absolve you. Silly Papists." The Prot intention that an individual would wrestle with their act and truly grasp their sin and come to terms with God is admirable. It's also possibly only good for believers with good cognitive function. It places the focus of dealing with guilt on the individual, which can be a strong feeling and religious test.

It is also a bad idea for the masses. We have to admit that many individuals barely have agency or awareness of next week. If a church continuously pushes the God loves all despite all shortcomings, that church will be full of those Christians that 'pray' on decisions, royally screw over friends, but then wipe away the act with "God loves me". This Gods loves me no matter what also twists their conception of the afterlife, but that is for another essay.

Losing the ritual of confession also disconnects one from the community, which the priest or reverend is the connector. Confessing would give the priest inside information, and even if you told no one else, there'd be a set of eyes on you that would know. It could be a behavioral control system, and with the backing of God's wrath behind it, a powerful one for the community. It combines guilt culture with a set of eyes that can shame one because of their knowledge.

There is another side to this and part of the reason why forgiveness is devalued now. We are expected to forgive everything. Grudges or even learned prejudices are strongly discouraged. Society wide, why hold one grudge? If you hold a grudge, you might be able to see patterns and hold a grudge against a group... we would not want that unless it is a grudge approved by the progressive clerisy. Forgive mere mortal, you only live once, so why hold onto any hard feelings... everybody does it.

Social Matter - Geographic Apartheid In California Exists To Entrench The One-Party State

New essay up at Social Matter. Joel Kotkin managed to discuss the rural-urban divide in California, but conveniently left out how the reason for this is buried in progressive ideology. It is all tied together. The progressive cities are like vampires that will suck the life out of anywhere to keep their wild dreams alive.

4D Chess Meme + SM Review-Preview 85

The 4D Chess Meme is a brilliant meme for the Trump phenomenon. It is not a new one, but comical when deployed. It becomes a catch all.

Trump says something weird? 4D Chess.

Trump randomly mentions someone? 4D Chess.

Trump screws up a roll out of something which fails but was not his exactly? 4D Chess.

Trump sends his own tax returns that show a billion dollar loss and then sends his returns showing a +$150 million return 8 years later signifying how much bank he made in 8 years to eat through that loss on national TV? 4D Chess.

Trump lobs missiles at Syria but at Assad prior to a meeting in Moscow between foreign ministers and while the Chinese head of state is eating dessert at Mar-A-lago because your forpol guys want the Norks dealt with? 4D Chess.

Similar to appropriating some of The Donald's speech, mannerisms, style or approach for use in everyday life, mentioning the 4D Chess when you stumble into some luck will help you. It adds a layer of mystery or a cloud around your motives, hiding them. It can cover up though for bad executions of things that somehow still turn out okay.

Where this helps Team trump is that he can use the Mad Bomber strategy but without the negative connotations. Nixon used this strategy when Kissinger was talking to the North Vietnamese to resolve the Vietnam War. Nixon wanted everyone, not just the Vietnamese, to know he would go to any length to get a deal with America on favorable terms. The real targets of his moves were the ChiComs and Soviets. He wanted them to see how serious he was. This not only helped with Vietnam but with opening China and d├ętente.

Saying Trump was using Mad Bomber would play right into the media's hands of Trump being a psychotic loose cannon. 4D Chess is a peaceful way to portray oneself as unpredictable without any insane or violent connotations. This matters. Americans love a killer, but a friendly, thinking-man's killer.

Some serious 4d Chess would be... >HYPOTHETICAL< ...if you had analysts that saw an opposing nation trending towards breaking up or internal conflict. How would they break up? Maybe geographically, economically, or along race and ethnic lines. Ah race! One way you could push that would be to help someone who is an outsider to the political teams and already dislikes the players in the current system, doesn't want to play ball. They're young so they could be bought off relatively cheaply for potential huge gains like a penny stock. Why not give them some publicity on your network and why not marry off someone in your orbit to them? Make sure he completes his end of the bargain and knocks her up so she has an anchor baby. Just one, no more needed, but now she definitely can be a propaganda voice for you within the enemy's gates with the amazing ability to feel the true motives or inside info that does pan out. On top of this, magically you have a conduit for any information you want to pipe in or out of the country, even money. Shucks, if the asset becomes an open dissident, you have a Schelling point for all disgruntled people within the country to rally around. Plus, that person pushes a line that would fracture your opponent along one of those fault lines that your deep thinkers see as present. He just needs to say out loud what people think or feel... some may even be unaware. If they gain group awareness or even enough of them call for collective action, well then you the outside force can assist with or guarantee them the right of self-determination in the event your opponent trends closer to conflict. This is how President Wilson encouraged separatists in the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the closing years of WW1.

No, I don't think Mr. Spencer is a Russian agent or that he had a GRU assigned wife, but that would be some seriously buy low, long term 4D Chess by Russia's Deep State if it were true. That's also what the Left peddles when not calling Spencer a Nazi. There was a graphic that had lines and Putin, Dugin, Spencer's Wife, Spencer and then further lines to Miller-Sessions-Trump. It is completely ridiculous. This is a warning about 4D Chess. It can sound like conspiracy​ theorizing if taken too far.

Last week I wrote on how there will be no patriarchy without patriarchs first. Weimerica Weekly was about the Pepsi Ad that made progs mad.

This week I will cover the hand wringing over the plight of impoverished areas within the blue states that shucks just happen. No one knows how it happens! Weimerica Weekly will most likely be about a topic several of you have sent my way, "Adult Day Camps".
