Trees, vegetation, sky view from Meridian Ave near 7th Street, Miami Beach, Fla., 1:34 p.m., Sept 22, 2021
In the sunny tropical light of a Miami Beach afternoon, as I start this post, allow me to clarify what I wrote in my previous entry about why I really want to take a break from this blog -- or at least composing the type of entries that I can't seem to NOT write.
For starters, I have been keeping up this blog now for three weeks shy of 13-1/2 years through (including this posting) #3,169 entries and some radical changes in my worldview commencing late last spring and change in in daily life with my move this past mid-March AWAY from Washington, D.C., where I was for far too long, and TO Miami Beach.
Above and below: The pastel pink/salmon-hued but otherwise unnamed garden apartment complex with courtyard at the corner of Meridian Ave and 8th Street, Miami Beach, Fla.
Above was taken at 2:02 p.m. Sept 22, 2021, and below was taken the previous day at 3:25 p.m. Sept 21, 2021. In both instances, I was walking to (below) or back from (above) the Publix.
Secondly, this blog was never intended to be a day-to-day political commentary sounding board filled with so much vitriol and rage and the garbage of our present broken and perverted era.
That's because it's purpose was NOT to discuss every major political, cultural, or world event in the context of the ethically degenerate monsters who run the country.
And despite the long-running political bent of the blog, I assure you it was never meant to be a sounding board of angry and upset political opinion about the Covid-based "Great Reset" of society into a quasi-feudal overclass/underclass with permanent health security-based police state.
Nor of the gaslighting by a degenerate Elite that seeks to suffocate our American society and civilization with a deeply racist, sex-and-gender identity-obliterating, sundry "intersectional" horse-shitting Cultural Marxist Revolution.
Above and below: The southside exterior of the 600 Michigan condos along 6th Street, Miami Beach, Fla.
Above was taken at 1:36 p.m. Sept 22, 2021, and below was taken the previous day at 3:31 p.m. Sept 21, 2021. In both instances, I was walking to (below) or back from (above) the Publix.
But since I mentioned it, as always in such a Cultural Revolution directed from some powerful interest or group, it is the young, easily manipulated, and confused as their Shock Troops.
And while I compose three or four such entries each week -- spending, like, 20 hours to even 24 hours (equivalent to a FULL DAY) in total doing so -- the time, effort, and energy needed to develop all these postings, regardless of whether anybody is reading them -- robs me of a bit of my spiritual and mental wholeness. And it's just too much.
Above: Senile Joe's collapsing approval rating -- down 24 points among Independents since January with 18 points of that just since June. This tiny Republican support halved from 12 points to a negligible 6 points since July.
This is, of course, compounded by the day-to-day insanities of the Democrat Party and this tragi-farce of a Biden Regime that is notionally led by an angry, brittle, senile, rage-a-holic old man who is the puppet of Oligarchs and a grotesque cabal of Karens and Soy Boys that make up "the Deep State" operational arm.
And then there is the level of pure gaslighting that is so obscene and enraging.
I refer to the mainstream media and White House race-baiting combo campaign -- liquid shit is more like it -- that is this week's "issue" involving horse-mounted CBP agents supposedly using "whips" against helpless, defenseless Haitian migrants wading across the Rio Grande at Del Rio, Texas.
In fact, they're just loose reins to control the animals amid a chaotic throng while the agents attempt crowd control against massive numbers of people just bum-rushing the wide-open US-Mexico border. But the disinformation campaign-from-on-high IS the point.
As additional context, an intentionally unspecified but large number of Haitians (in the hundreds of thousands) haved joined all the other hundreds of thousands of Central Americans and whoever else are crossing every week. How exactly they are flying from Haiti to Mexico and then getting to the border isn't clear.
Above: No bullshit hysterical "racism" accusation from the Left would be complete without -- as Matt Walsh says -- this race hustling parasite, "Reverend" Al "Tawana Brawley" Sharpton showing up. The good news here in this case is that Sharpton was angrily and loudly heckled. He looked pathetic and very old.
The "optics" of the horses, reins, and Haitians in the river "triggered" all the Karens on Twitter -- all historically illiterate, situationally clueless, and experientially wholly lacking.
But it was the Karen / Deep State cabal in the White House around Biden that inflamed, is still inflaming, the "whips-against-Haitians" hysterical but wholly bullshit meme.
In fact, it is just another fucking race-baiting exploitation by a depraved and ignorant Left that sees racism in every thought, word, deed, symbol and sign -- and to reiterate, to have people at that level stoking the racist cannard in a bitterly tribalizing disinformation campaign IS the point.
Among those senior administration people flaming this calumnious lie against the very border agents was the DHS Secretary, a little troll-like muppet named Alejandro Mayorkas, and the White House Press Secretary / human Peppermint Patty, Jen Psaki.
Above: Jesse Kelly's spot-on description of the three characteristics of U.S. elites: (1) No love of country. (2) Little to no real world experience. (3) Inherent belief in their superiority and their right to rule over the peasants as lords.
Added into this mix is the always-painfully embarrassing performance of VP Kamala Harris. As other have noted, this otherwise shockingly stupid Lady Macbeth hateful shrew who is always-failing-upwards is nothing but unchecked ambition mixed with a pathological inability to even pretend to publicly display EITHER authenticity or sincerity.
Above: The nothing-less-than-intentional complete failure of the US Government to secure the Southern border has resulted in Texas increasingly taking matters in its own hands, as the above barricade of police vehilces shows.
Just consider this:
The half muppet / half troll DHS head and White House are actively and truly grotsequely pushing, shoving, HURLING under the proverbial bus the very agents trying to defend a lawless open border with unchecked illegal migration of Covid-infection masses -- itself encouraged by the Democrat leaders and Big Media on the idea they are tomorrow's Democratic voters -- using the usual Leftwing racist claptrap charges.
As an aside, this is a fundamental error by the Left -- the idea that any up-and-coming immigrant group in the U.S. are going to be just another racial / ethnic / identity group in the Left's zero-sum Marxist worldview. (I think you get a real-life sense of that in the visceral reaction of the Hispanic locales in Del Rio to Sharpton's unwanted visit.)
This explains the inherent degeneracy of the Left and why nothing it does EVER succeeds -- even on their own terms. This also explains why the U.S. Government of 2021 is a failed entity -- one incapable of doing ANYTHING effectively.
As for Australia -- and I apologize upfront for this graphic image, but it has to be shown -- if you want to know how things are going in that Covid Totalitarian Nation, this is all you need to know:
Above: His name was Kyle Mitchell. He lived his life with family and friends in and around Melbourne, Australia. And he was just savagely murdered, executed, in the manner that you see by the Victoria Police for the Australian "crime" of protesting the government's murderous, lunatic Covid lockdown regime.
Kyle Mitchell's blood is forever on on the hands of, in no particular order, Shane Patton, Martin Foley, and Daniel Andrews -- and by extension of his cowardice and pussiness, the worthless Prime Minister Scott Morrison. They're shown in the above image montage.
Don't expect to find coverage of this on any Australian media -- it's all tightly state-controlled. The Australian media have helped ensure that 75% of the population is giddy at its own endless imprisonment.
This entry is updated 3:28 a.m. 9/24/2021 based on new information, namely, that this Kyle Mitchell did not die and is now recovering. The details of the story still aren't totally clear, and I knew in posting it there was a chance of seriously incorrect information. Now, I'm just trusting the Daily Mail is correct and updating the entry.
To be clear, this news, if true, is very good news, and we'll just leave it at that.
End of Update.
While we aren't at that level here in the U.S., make no mistake that the Oligarichal Elite's Covid-based "Great Reset" and more general cultural insanities are intended to turn civilization into a high-tech panopticon-based Overclass / Underclass quasi-feudal state.
It is an Elite with Hollywood-style values that believes not just in its own Divine Right to rule but in some demented version of an "Ecotopia" that holds large numbers of humans simply should not exist. Covid is the weapon of choice in much of the English-speaking world. But in the U.S., it also uses the battle-axe of "Social Justice" to achieve those basically genocidal ends.
As for Biden and his Bougeois Bolshevik regime, I knew it would fuck up royally, but it's still astonishing to watch it unfold in real time. Literally everything it touches turns to PURE SHIT.
This is why I'm quite ambivalent if the U.S. Government actually goes into debt ceiling-breach default next month because that's the only way to halt in its tracks this Oligarichical Elite's Cultural Communist revolution and general "Great Reset" effort.
This not-that-unusual political kabuki theatre aside, the Left in the U.S. has precisely one year left to do whatever it is going to do -- and then the change comes starting in November 2022. And it will come, is already coming as the signs are showing. Bigtime.
In terms of the open-ended Covid horseshit with forcible masking and vaxxing of two year olds in Democrat-run cities and states, the vaccination mandate and resulting labor market chaos and confusion.
What's more, owing to an unpleasant and racially-infused event at a fancy Italian restaurant, Carmines, in New York City, BLM is now actively targeting the vax mandate as discriminatory against Black Americans. This is, as Wesley Yang said a few months ago, "very interesting."
To be clear, in this case, BLM is quite correct. Vax mandates with no escape clauses or any sanity disproportionately target vaccine-hesitant groups to include Black Americans and are therefore just an American 21st Century health-security state version of Jim Crow-minded discrimination to create two separate and unequal classes of citizens. I just like how it badly fucks up the narrative of the Professional Left.
Oh, and by the way, while putting together this "Updated" part of this entry, I came across an article by someone who was once one of my favorite political philosphers -- and who I even met a couple times back in D.C., both in grocery stores, the first time resulting in a nice conversation, the next one some years later, producing dissatisfying outcome because he was basically unfriendly.
I refer to Michael Lind, and here is the piece as it appeared in Tablet on Aug 11, 2020 [link embedded]: Woke Inc. (and, yes, there is at least one other book by another author with the same title).
Sub-headline: A seemingly socially conscious corporate America is not a new phenomenon. It’s a revival of an old one.
Above: One of the vents of the Cumbre Veija volcano on La Palma in the Canary Islands is erupting. Suggestions of a mega-tsunami-triggering collapse of flank of the volcano into the Atlantic are being discounted.
Well, whatever the case, and given that every entry I write turns into this spray of helpless written anger and the socio-political and cultural situation of America in 2021 -- combined the non-trivial issue that I dread putting together these entries -- this is why I want to stop writing these type of entries for a while.
And, yes, I know I've this previously, but I really mean it this time.
I would continue to post entries but only if they were on other non-political topics. Trouble is, I can't seem to do that, hence my internal agony.
OK, that's all for now. I just don't know about how or when to post additional entries for all the reasons explained above. For tomorrow, I am flat out taking the day off and treating it like a Saturday or Sunday.
