The Oberlin Verdict

I am still impressed by this verdict against a social justice witchhunt. How about you? Legal Insurrection has done a great job of covering the trial. William Jacobson was on with Tucker Carlson last night, noting that a witchhunt like this could happen to anybody, even off-campus:

These are people who get up at 3 or 4 in the morning [to go to work] when Oberlin students are just getting home.

As Steven Hayward asked, "Will Oberlin learn its lesson?" Short answer: No, they won't.

His long answer involves course descriptions from their department of "Comparative American Studies". Where the Dean shown in the photo above, who caused so much trouble for the school, previously taught.

What is comparative American studies? I suspect at Oberlin it means comparing the United States to Nazi Germany and finding the U.S. coming out the worse.

I like the title of his second "sample" course in this department:

Visible Bodies and the Politics of Sexuality

Hayward goes on to give us quite a bit of information about the Social Justice Warrior Dean who encouraged the witch hunt against the Gibsons. You would probably enjoy reading it at this point. The bit about antisemitism is quite disturbing to me.

But these details explain a lot about why the jury hated Oberlin.

Do not send your kids to a school in this state of civilizational decline.

The fight against the left must continue

A Democratic Socialist city councilwoman has been elected in Denver who stated:

"I think that we're in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn't work and we have to move into something new, and I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources and distribution of those resources," she continued. "And whatever that morphs into is I think what will serve community the best and I'm excited to usher it in by any means necessary."

Whatever that morphs into? By any means necessary?

It is remarkable to me that someone with David Horowitz' background, the son of communist Jews whose family came from Russia, would write a book about the Left's current crusade to destroy Christianity. Focusing in particular on LGBTQ bigotry:

Vice President Mike Pence and Trump's gay ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, are leading a Trump-inspired global campaign to end the criminalization of gay sex and gay relationships, but you would never know it from the hate that gay "civil rights" groups are directing at them. Pence has been singled out by leading Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg as a dangerous bigot -- not because he actually is a bigot but because he holds traditional Christian views of gay marriage, which offend Buttigieg and the gay vigilantes. When Buttigieg announced he was gay and introduced his husband in 2015, Pence went out of his way as the governor of Indiana - as Buttigieg's political rival -- to praise him for his public service as mayor of South Bend.

Being able to hold opinions that others find offensive is called freedom of conscience or religious liberty, and is the most basic freedom we have as Americans, which is why it is stipulated in the First Amendment to the Bill of Rights. It is the most basic freedom because without the ability to hold dissenting opinions and express them freely you can't defend any of the other freedoms you have. The sin committed by Vice President Pence that gave Buttigieg the license to demonize and defame him was his signing of a bill to protect the religious liberty of the people of Indiana. . . .

I like this quote:

To totalitarian leftists, religious liberty is the freedom to worship according to the values you believe in, but not to advocate or live by those values; they have redefined tolerance as a mandate to force people to act against their beliefs if those beliefs are at odds with the prejudices of the left. These are anti-American ideas and they constitute a determined attack on America's pluralistic culture - a culture and respect they hypocritically demand for themselves but refuse to afford to others. These attacks have already corroded our national dialogue and created divisions so deep it is problematic as to whether in the long run our nation can survive them.

Music

So, the two last items got me thinking about Russia. Here's Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture, complete with cannons. If you are ready to get directly into the fighting spirit, you can start at 11 minutes.

"And whatever that morphs into is I think what will serve community the best and I'm excited to usher it in by any means necessary."

I think Churchill's take on Democracy works well on riffs like this. Capitalism is the worst form of an economy, except for all the others. An economy and a civilization will function best when based on a contract with rules that have to be followed for it to succeed. We are in the land of the ruleless, now, so no type of government or economy will work properly.

It only currently survives because many of us have determined we had no other choice, if we wanted to work in our chosen fields.

Penalizing Oberlin may hurt students who had nothing to do with the harmful actions. So, penalize the students themselves -- and that dean. Make them come up with the $44 million, personally.

Funny thing about capitalism, it's like water. You can try to channel it, control it, dam it, redirect it, or turn it off.

It will always find its own channel, it's own pathway, because in a very real sense, humans who think we can control it, are just deluding ourselves.

So the only way to shut it off... capitalism I mean, not water, is to start actively killing humans. Really, there's no other way. Everywhere socialism has been tried, capitalism seeps through, one way or another. You have to kill people to stop them from engaging in it. There's no other way.

78 "I think that we're in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn't work and we have to move into something new..."


I think it is zombie that has said "capitalism" is a term made up by the Marxists. it is a way to frame our freedom in terms of economic oppression, where BigMoney rules.


And I keep saying, "we are NOT a capitalist nation", because capitalism is not a government system. Communism is a government system that owns (or controls) all levers of commerce. American Liberty was designed to NOT let government control commerce, EXCEPT to the extent it maintains liberty for the individual ABOVE CAPITALISM. Free markets occur under the umbrella of liberty, which includes the Bill of Rights.


So we need a lot of laws to stop the likes of Google/Twits/FaceBook from censoring/punishing certain groups (Christian/AmericaFirsters). We need laws to promote choices (anti-trust laws) ... and laws against "knee-capping" the competition (lawfare against gun makers). Economic Warfare has been controlled by (globalist) WallStreet since at least the 90's, and they have even framed our military policy for their interests (and IMF/BIS/etc.)


America stand for Liberty ... the proposition nation, it does not stand to enrich the stock/bond market, even if that is done by using slaves and polluting in foreign/enemy countries. Government gets involved in strategically managing foreign trade. .. on behalf of the American People and maintaining said Liberty ... not fighting wars on behalf of globalist interests, or to "Save the Economy".


Oberlin is fighting for the myth of global fairness, so individuals must be destroyed. The vast settlement was standing for American Liberty (for those individuals and their enterprising virtues) ... not for "Capitalism". imo

As co-chairwoman of a task force charged with revamping
Oberlin's Sexual Offense Resource Guide, Raimondo helped draft an
extensive, non-mandatory policy in 2014 that called on faculty use
trigger warnings in their lessons.

"Anything could be a trigger-a smell, song, scene, phrase, place, person, and so on," the guide read. "Triggers are not only relevant to sexual misconduct, but also to
anything that might cause trauma. Be aware of racism, classism, sexism,
heterosexism, cissexism, ableism and other issues of privilege and
oppression." It also instructed professors to "Remove triggering
material when it does not contribute directly to the course learning
goals."






The inmates are running the asylum. But by all means let's get rid of all songs, smells, phrases and so on so we won't trigger any snowflake

It's ridiculous that ace has trouble with advertisers. RIDICULOUS. From his Alexa rank I'm guessing he has at least a couple million monthly uniques, which should be enough to make sure the site has no worries in that regard.

But uniques aren't everything, and there's no reliable metric for engagement. I know from common sense that engagement at AoS is SUPER strong, but now I have proof....

When I post a link to one of my memes on a supposedly important Twitter bluecheck dork's tweet, someone with a lot of "followers," I consider it successful if a couple of hundred people click through to it.

Ace placed a (partially functional) link to my cuckshed joke in his sidebar, and guess how many people have followed through? Because it's forty thousand so far. Forty. Freaking. Thousand.

When the true facts behind the Gibson's detention of the black shoplifter became widely known and it was clear the arrest was justified, an Oberlin professor named Copeland sent a letter to the local paper objecting to the administration's continued incitement of the protests:

At trial, Raimondo was revealed to have sent a text reacting to Copeland's letter that said, "Fuck him. I'd say unleash the students if I wasn't convinced this needs to be put behind us."

131 "Academic administrators tend to "fail up".

We made the globalist oligarchs so friggin rich (bailouts for billionaires, that are running billions in cartel money) ... that they can make sure any failures get big compensation for fighting on behalf of the globalists (CNN is full of such "failures" like Brennan/McCabe/Clapper, or others like Lerner/Hillary). It has been (till now?) the whistle blowers that get punished, those exposed are advanced.


The SJWs are not really failures, they performed a mission for the far left globalists, and while a few may have paid a price for going over some legal lines, they advanced the cause and are heroes ... it was a broad victory in academia, with only a very few casualties (massive casualties on our side).


So the Oberlin woman was pushing the limits, went far over the line, such "noble selflessness" must be rewarded, by the Soros type overlords. Even though the legal decision was a sound defeat, it was a small battle .. but hopefully an indication a tide is turning. Oberlin Woman did not "fail", she was a hero SJW obeying orders, her generals must reward her.

A Soros-backed group, including former governor Ed Rendell, enabler of Penn State pedos, is trying to install these safe injection sites in Philadelphia. Their big problem, besides opposition from the neighbors, is that the US Attorney for the district is a Trump appointed prosecutor. And safe injection sites violate fed law.
If those sites are put in place while this US Atty is in office, they will be cleared in a matter of days.
Ed Rendell is a big old hairy POS.

163 I think the Dems had it firmly in mind that they could pull away from the Gramscian phase of war for position, and into the war for maneuver, once Thundershart was in. Trump was a big setback and the older Marxists know it.

But the drooling, rabid, braindead youth they've raised are completely ignorant of the means and tactics for a Marxist takeover of a democratic country, because they are products of those tactics, and they're not supposed to understand.

So the freshmen kids are doing out saying "Green New! Deal!" and "down with the jews," "down with the whites," "impeach now!" and so on. And now this CdeBaca in Denver is demanding full communism in public.

Watching them try to drag this monster back to its cage is fun, if alarming.

They are watching your reaction to these ads through their cameras. It's automated, I don't mean someone is necessarily sitting there at that moment watching you. It is a burgeoning technology and it is 100% real and being implemented in cities and towns across the country as "news kiosks". I have no evidence it's happening at ATM's right now but they have a camera there, and if there are ads happening at these places now, it certainly stands to reason.

They can tell if you are happy, sad or angry. And what your race, gender and age is. This is being done like all the social media intrusions with the excuse of "the advertisers want to know". Eventually... not sure when... you will be punished if you don't react in an acceptable way to what is shown to you. Perhaps a woman saying she wants an abortion. Or two men kissing. Or president Hillary doting around in one of her fine robes.

Think I'm kidding? Does it sound as crazy to you as it would have five years ago? Ten? I'm deadly serious by the way.

That's another thing with advertisers, and the gay pride push is an example. Ads (unless it's for a niche) should have the broadest possible appeal while focusing on their demo, and not offending those outside it. IOW, they're like pop music - bland, boring, and uniform. It's why there's always a trend in ads, because they move with the broader culture.

But the major ad agencies have become Leftist, progressive bubbles with a large number of gays, SJWs, and assorted other loudmouthed radicals on staff. They never travel outside their deep blue cities except to visit deep blue boardrooms and tourist destinations. They've lost touch with the broader culture and the trends in advertising recently reflect that.

Not two years ago, Gillette was running that excellent ad with the disabled NFL player and his dad. Very normal, uplifting ad about family, adversity, and manhood. Not two years ago.

221 " it's amusing when the consequences of affirmative action - which I'm pretty confident was at work here - come home to roost."

Affirmative action is Oberlin's main selling-point: they were among the first colleges to recruit PoC students, back around 1850. Derb would call them quintessential GoodWhites.

They are more proud of their student body selection than they are of their commitment to scholarship. When their PoC students team up to rob and beat the townies, their brainwashed administrators can't mentally process the contradiction between their dogma and the reality thrust into their faces.

224 They are watching your reaction to these ads through their cameras. It's automated, I don't mean someone is necessarily sitting there at that moment watching you. It is a burgeoning technology and it is 100% real and being implemented in cities and towns across the country as "news kiosks". I have no evidence it's happening at ATM's right now but they have a camera there, and if there are ads happening at these places now, it certainly stands to reason.

They can tell if you are happy, sad or angry. And what your race, gender and age is. This is being done like all the social media intrusions with the excuse of "the advertisers want to know". Eventually... not sure when... you will be punished if you don't react in an acceptable way to what is shown to you. Perhaps a woman saying she wants an abortion. Or two men kissing. Or president Hillary doting around in one of her fine robes.

It's all too plausible, as banks can then monetize their access to you. Instead of - or in addition to - sneaking in all kinds of bogus fees. (Which is one reason we left Chase: they kept doing this. I had to scour every statement to find whether the formerly "free" checking now came with a price tag, for example if the account balance dropped below a certain amount.)

So the only way to shut it off... capitalism I mean, not water, is to start actively killing humans. Really, there's no other way. Everywhere socialism has been tried, capitalism seeps through, one way or another. You have to kill people to stop them from engaging in it. There's no other way.

I also don't think the U.S. has been operating under a true Capitalism economic model for a long time. We are certainly closer to the Fascist model: private ownership of production but subject to the authoritarian control of the State.

Hayek's Road to Serfdom makes the point that a Socialist/Collectivist government ALWAYS has to identify enemies (usually internal) that are blocking the proles from experiencing all the good things promised to them by the Collectivists.

291 The public library of Ames, Iowa has a series of performances that are "drag shows for kids!" in which adult drag queens do sexy dances for very young children. And part of the act is that, just as with stripper shows where you "make it rain" money on the naked stripper (as describd in many rap songs), you're supposed to shower the drag queen with money to show your appreciation for their sexy dance. So, liberal mothers actually take their kids to these shows (in the public library!) and then instruct their 4-year-old and 5-year-old children to hand money to the sexy drag queen

I called Fidelity about it but they are pretty hush hush on private stuff, but they "assured me" they don't do the "gambling leverage" dangerous stuff.


imo moving some money to a small local bank (in my case at least, a farm community) is a way to deter the globalists. A got a note from the local bank guy when I put some cash there, saying they try to invest/loan locally, which is what I was looking for.


The other thing to do is invest in your own production ... farming, or other means of production. But that gets a lot more complicated than just throwing money into globalist mutual funds and approving of government killing anything that gets in the way of BigProfitMargin. heh

yeah, that's why I put "assured me" in quotes. But they have seemed more solid in many ways over the years, hard to quantify. I think Schwab was the other one Fleck' ranked up there with Fidelity.


Seems a time may come when some "bail ins" may occur, and more rumors of resets or jubilee on debt ... no one knows, except that everyone went fiat and bubbles are blowing ever larger. And BigMoney is trying to take down Trump, and trying to tear up sovereign nations ... lots in the shadows, and they openly lie to us (like Bernanke when he openly lied that "we are not doing quantitative easing", well after they were doing it) Just amazing but "it will continue ... till it doesn't" as the saying goes.

It's a fun idea, but alumni have no contractual agreement with the school that obligates the school to do anything at all for them. It's more like "You fucked up! You trusted us!!!"

If they were really motivated, they could try to take back the Board of Trustees from the SJW's, but that's probably doomed to failure too. The only thing they really can do is walk away, never give them another dime, and do everything they can to convince other alumni to never give them a dime and convince future generations that it's a worthless shithole and no one should ever go there.

Of course that would mean admitting that value of the degree that the alumni got is now worthless and is never going to be of value again. It's a hard thing to accept, but it's the truth.

These organizations like Oberlin that have gone bad - they aren't going to be "saved", they aren't going to be "reformed", they aren't going to "learn their lesson". They are going to die, and the town that relied on them will probably mostly die with them. That's a hard, sad fact.

It's common to say that when something can't go on, it won't. Well, this is how things end. Everything dies at some point, some things sooner than others.

The chain moves freely if you move it by hand with the engine off? If so, I suspect either the centrifugal clutch has failed somehow, or maybe the key that holds the clutch on the shaft is sheared. (If it uses a key.) I think most chainsaws have the centrifugal clutch threaded onto the crankshaft with a fine right-hand thread. Maybe take the chain off, and see if the teeth on the inside of the chain that engage with the sprocket teeth on the clutch are still intact. Also see if the sprocket teeth on the clutch drum are OK. They can get worn right through in the middle where the chain rides on them.

Hope this helps. Poulan is sort of a disposable chainsaw.
