The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

Here is a perfect example of the chilling effect of overt far-left indoctrination. The Common Application is a convenient way for college-bound high school students to apply to multiple colleges. But it is obviously run by progressive scum, as exemplified by its CEO, Jenny Rickard, who looks pretty much how one would expect; a pinch-faced scold. Her career before she slithered into her current position, starting with her undergraduate days at Swarthnore College (Wow...what a surprise!), suggests that she is perfectly happy with driving anyone to the right of Stalin out of Academia and perhaps out of America.

commonapp.jpg

The obvious problem here is that every kid using the Common Application is going to reveal some part of himself on that application, including in an essay. After reading this letter how many of these kids are going to take the safe route and say nothing about any impure thoughts they might be having? No discussions of freedom and liberty or market economics or how I spent my summers hunting or shooting or serving the poor at my church or a hundred other telltale behaviors.

The hysterical tone and outright lies are simply a tool to intimidate and manipulate anyone who is thinking of applying to college.

The message is clear; wrongthink will be punished. And the rancid bitch who runs this organization will be lauded for her bravery, instead of being hounded from a position of influence over the futures of our youth.

Since Jenny joined Common App in August of 2016, the organization has developed a long-term strategic plan and roadmap and has expanded its access initiatives, including the acquisition of Reach Higher, the college access and success campaign founded by former First Lady Michelle Obama during her time in the White House[...]
Another surprise! She is an Obama fluffer!

The long march through our schools has yielded a monolithic academic culture that ruthlessly tamps down any deviation from the orthodoxy. And that orthodoxy is anti-Western, anti-White, anti-freedom, and anti-individual.

We spent 3,000 years developing a culture that has lifted the world out of Hobbes' "nasty, brutish, and short" life and propelled us to places unimagined just a few hundred years ago. These people want to drag us back down into the muck of a totalitarian hellscape. They had a taste of it in the USSR, China, and the many failed socialist states around the world. And they want that for us.

43 Hopefully someone compiles a list of companies that put out statements calling this an "insurrection", or racist, or whatever other bullshit they want to pin on it. I kind of ignored companies putting out George Floyd statements and posting lip service to BLM, because it felt like them all given into industry pressure (which says they're cowards, but not bad) But these statements about the Capitol hill fiasco are companies down right calling 75 million Americans traitors who deserve to be hung, it's far beyond the redline we should all have written in the sand.

Personally I'm getting out of Bank of America by thre end if the month. Thier statement was particularly despicable and i don't want to deal with them any longer. I'd love to move to a credit union, but it's not a very feasible option in NYC (maybe JJ knows one) but from what I've seen I can't find anything about this week or even BLM put out by TD Bank, so they might be my new home for now.

I've boycotted a few places after they pushed Obama shit much tamer than this, so I can hold a grudge.

Trump supporters forcing their way into the Capitol on the 6th is analogous to the abused wife slapping her husband on the face as he approaches to beat her up for the umpteenth time.

The world at large seems to be aghast that the abused wife might strike out while ignoring the many beatings already endured from her bullying husband.

62 The "stark differences" in the treatment of black and brown "protesters" (a/k/a rioters, looters, arsonists, etc.), compared with MAGA (or even perceived MAGA) protesters, or conservative protesters, has been shocking and wrong, but not for the reasons this letter insinuates.

Blacks and browns, and lots of lefty whites, protesting/rioting under the BLM and antifa flags, have been treated with kid gloves by law enforcement. In most instances, even when caught in the act of rioting, setting fires, smashing up businesses, etc., they are not arrested, and in the cases of the handful who were arrested, they are either not charged or the charges are dismissed within weeks. Politicians either explicitly urge them to keep up the violence (see, e.g., Kamaltoe Harris), or they insist that we must give them "room to riot," and the media treat them like heroic figures.

Compare and contrast to protests by conservatives (such as the Tea Party) or MAGA types, where even the most peaceful and respectful gatherings are treated like Klan meetings by the media, participants are routinely slandered as racists and haters, and politicians called for armed responses.

68 Blogger Bookworm has done posts on how the college applications encourage and reward kids for being woke.

The Common App also has five essay prompts, from which the student picks one, all aimed at helping the university see what kind of person the student is outside of test scores and grades. This year's prompts:
-- Some students have a background or story that is so central to their identity that they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.
-- Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure. How did it affect you, and what lessons did you learn?
-- Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?
-- Describe a place or environment where you are perfectly content. What do you do or experience there, and why is it meaningful to you?
-- Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture, community, or family.

So Parler has not only been deplatformed simultaneously by multiple service providers in obvious coordination, all private information and content has been accessed and downloaded by crazed social justice warriors because one of the services suddenly dropped was authentication/security. The hackers I imagine had advance notices and coordination like the rest of them.

What's weird is that video is like the worst caricature we could make against them, and yet it's real.

"Trump is Hitler"
"Reeducation camps"
"We're so smart here in DC and red states are so stupid"
"I hope they get COVID and die"

Yet it won't matter. Like I said, best we can hope for is that it wakes up the complacent on our side to the danger facing us. Normies are never going to know about it.

I hope you're right but I fear the public schools have done their jobs well. Most kids nowadays agree with this stuff because their teachers believe it and even their parents have bought into it. And they've been indoctrinated that if they doubt then it's because of their inherent racism and white privilege. The brainwashing is ubiquitous and never ending.

156 68 Blogger Bookworm has done posts on how the college applications encourage and reward kids for being woke.

The Common App also has five essay prompts, from which the student picks one, all aimed at helping the university see what kind of person the student is outside of test scores and grades. This year's prompts:
-- Some students have a background or story that is so central to their identity that they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.
-- Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure. How did it affect you, and what lessons did you learn?
-- Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?
-- Describe a place or environment where you are perfectly content. What do you do or experience there, and why is it meaningful to you?
-- Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture, community, or family.

The major cloud providers are Amazon and Microsoft. Google is in that space, too. Then Oracle, IBM kinda.

Amazon is easy. If you have an Amazon account to buy stuff (you know you do) then you can go on AWS and create a server. For free. If you need more stuff, you can just have it billed to your credit card on file.

They have a lot of services that if you had to build it yourself, it would cost you a lot of time and money.

You HAD to read it and then answer questions, and I would leave the test thinking that they had picked essays that were written by f-gs. This was the 70s.

Or history books that seemed to make the soviets appear virtuous. I remember a social studies class where they discussed Jimmy Carter, and how misunderstood he was. Or how virtuous it was to have 10 babies and live off welfare.

Save the condescension for someone who gives a shit about your opinion.

LBJ did ten times worse than Nixon. Yet the comparatively light shit that Nixon did was enough to get him canned. Difference? The public knew about Nixon. They didn't know about LBJ until well after he died. And they were against Nixon because Americans still had decent norms and values. Difference today? The norms and values are no longer mainstream. We are in a society of more overt tribalism than I've ever seen in my life, and we have very little to connect us.

To some one that is indoctrinated, you basically have to use the same techniques to deprogram as parents whose child went into a cult.
They have to own their behavior and ideas and the insidious part of indoctrination is that they can no longer see anything but some 'big' purpose to give their life meaning.
For your daughter apparently, it is to 'save' the world from climate change which is noble but the means being proposed will cause suffering and death.
Raising and expressing skepticism might be good along with anecdotes that Rachel Carson lied about the cause of bird deaths in Silent Springs and a lot of people died of malaria as a result. That the solar concentration power project in NV attracts and roasts birds, including endangered species and so forth. You have to introduce the hard concept of tradeoffs for ANY policy and that includes climate change. But it has to be done gently rather than using authority.

Sorry. But Morality isn't a pretend game. Everyone who didn't want to fuck Kennedy or his wife knew he and his family were amoral scumbags.

294 We've spent some time over the past few days discussing what happens when for-profit corporations align themselves against freedom. The conversation that needs to take place more urgently, however, is the hold that nonprofits hold over America.

Education. Philanthropy. Healthcare.

These are under the hammer lock of the Left, and they will control our lives even more than corporations do. We have the ability, at least in theory, to choose what companies to do business with. We really don't with the nonprofit space.

If you want to know that the cause du jour will be with corporations in five years, I always said look at what the folks at Non-Profit Quarterly are talking about today.

Patrick Byrne (former Overstock CEO) said he was used as an asset to frame Hillary with a bribe ... it worked, but they dropped it, didn't need it, went after Trump instead (would have wanted kompromat on any Republican as well)


Our DeepState wants to control anyone ... but it is so easy with Clinton/Biden/Obama ... Trump more of a threat to not obey the DS plan. So no, they won't go after Hunter or Joe, because they will follow the plan. (I want to know what their plan is for China and Iran ... Pompeo is talking up his clear eyed vision of the China threat, and just today on the Iran/AlQaeda threats.)

304 Adolph Eichmann was Reinhardt Heydrich's deputy at the Wannsee Conference during which Heydrich informed various high government officials of the Final Solution and coordinated their efforts. Eichmann thought that the attendees would outright reject such an inhuman proposal. When they embraced the policy rather than rejecting it, Eichmann washed his hands of the decision, much like Pontius Pilate did in an earlier age. If no one else of importance objected, then neither would he.

The above is based on Eichmann's statements after the war and as a prisoner in Jerusalem and may be suspect but, too me, it has the ring of truth.

We will each face our Wannsee Conference.

Like most billionaires his assets are a not a big Scrooge McDuck pool full of dollars. He has properties, and a lot of the value in those properties is in the name.

That value in the US is going rapidly to zero. He still owns Trump Tower, for example. If he sells the property, its worth WAY less than it was 5 years ago. Same with everything else. And he's not going to get new loans or financing for new properties.

I expect he can turn this into a few hundred million at best. Probably the Trump Organization gets turned into the Trump International Organization run out of Dubai.

Almost none of it was systemic in the sense of "changing laws and official structures" but it was all behind the scenes. Obama managed to mainstream radicalism, and used the power of the government to get to boardrooms across the nation and force them to care when before they just wanted to make money.

It does not work that way on evidence and trial procedure. Those are codified court decisions more or less. Congress has more power over things like jurisdiction and filing requirements.

The feds have all the power that they want regarding evidence as the whole Russia Russia Russia hoax revealed that the Feebs and political contractors have been abusing the NSA intercept system for years to use as the basis for law enforcement targeting. Michael Cohen is a perfect example--my guess is that they used comm intercepts via a FISA warrant to have him discussing taxi medallion fraud. Then they used subpoena powers and NSL powers to get his banking records, pen register, etc. to justify the subsequent charges and warrants to search his offices.

Posted by: Agent Cooper at January 12, 2021 12:03 PM (Dc5Qe)

354 I think you are both right about health issues,

but we have entered a new phase in society. In the past a large percentage of the public were farming. That meant the parents raised their kids, and the family unit was the building block of society.

All the health stuff was a boon to that society. But with technology, we entered the modern era where people live in cities. You no longer rely on your children to provide for you as you age, and you no longer interact with your kids every day at work.

Also, in a farming community everyone has to deal with each other, so the communities are stronger and people are more connected.

No, the modern age started when we went from 90% farmers to single digits. Not that farmers are better people, but that the system mankind had created over 1000s of years was optimal for that society, not for the industrial age.

My kind of model for all this is a company which has built a reputation for quality and customer service, and has a decent amount of assets such as factories and machines. The US after WWII was kind of like that company. The political and educated classes used the cultural, social, and political capital which had been built up as collateral to borrow against, asking for a massive increase in power and influence, much like said company leveraging its assets to borrow a large amount of money for expansion. As long as times were good the debt could be paid, the political/educated classes could provide a stable and prosperous society. However, as time went on, especially after 1990, they became increasingly overleveraged, and hence fragile. 9/11, the dragging on of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, the failure to contain ISIS, and the rising threat of China were all shocks which demonstrated that they could no longer service the debt which they'd taken out.

And how! Here's what I've seen my kid struggle with: teens are acutely aware of their social status and the degree to which they are/are not included in various events/gatherings. If you weren't invited to the cool kids party on Saturday night, you might not have even been aware of it until Monday morning when the stories about it were buzzing at school.

Nowadays, you know immediately where and when your classmates are having a good time without out you, as they are tweeting (or whatever) details, pictures and video real-time. Kids are now real-time spectators to the fun they are missing, which makes the feeling of exclusing much more devastating. And no matter how cool you are, how connected, there are always times when others are having fun without out you -- being pushed in your face.

Saw this last July 4th when picking up the kid at a summer ice cream stand . A gal in the group ahead of us was tweeting selfies enjoying her ice cream before it was even paid for.

369 346 fixerupper, standing does not work like that. Automatically one has standing to sue regarding contracts. It may be dismissed as a matter of law if the preliminary evidence by the plaintiff shows that the plaintiff is unlikely to prevail in a trial over the breach or that construing the contract, no breach occurred. But, summary dismissal is one of the biggest reasons for appellate reversals as appellate judges often send the case back to the district level for a trial.

Yeah, I mean privately people have always been sleazy. Humanity is sinful no matter what. But publicly there were standards and mores which are utterly gone.

When I was young nobody walked around swearing constantly, you kept that for private areas and special circumstances unless you were in combat. People were kind of ashamed to talk about certain topics in public.

Now people are kind of ashamed to talk about moral decent things and God in public, but are foul and horrible as loudly as they can be, everywhere.

It is my contention that the Clintons developed a huge database for political blackmail of opponents. First they used disreputable PI's for their dirt and then official government records were scoured.

The Patriot Act and the move to digital comms along with pervasive databases from commercial companies spying on their customers made it even easier to target and cull out opposition. It was supersized by the Obama administration where you could consider the entire conversion of the federal government happened to expedite domestic spying on opponents. That corruption includes the Gang of 8 which is why Angelo Codevilla calls for getting rid of the whole national security surveillance apparatus.

If VDH and Prager have actually bought into any of this, it adds to the free-fall degradation we're experiencing.

Talk with your financial planner if you have assets to save. Everyone's plan should address individual problems beyond the limits of the AOS grey boxes.

Do you have a small business with cash laying around? Then perhaps you might just want to splurge on a solar system for power disruptions. Do you have a bunch in 401k's? Then you might want to plan out what to do on withdrawal if the Dems come after them as they have threatened to 'nationalize' them.

Do you bank with the monster mega banks? Be aware that your deposits and cd's and ira's are treated as unsecured loans to that bank. Move it to a credit union that makes safer loans. And so on.

Posted by: washrivergal at January 12, 2021 11:50 AM (66BnU)

I doubt she's sleeping well at all. I looks like she's been taken into custody. Two days ago, a radio talk show host claimed that a top general - one in a position to know - told him that Pelosi would be arrested Monday. Towards the end of that day's broadcast he also reported quite a few troops being spotted at the Capitol.

The next day, there were no troops and no news item about good ol' Nancy. The talk show host took all kinds of grief, and he swore to never pass along another prediction. Another g-damn hoax!

But by the end of the broadcast word spread about something somebody had noticed. Nancy did not come to work that day. So it's either an incredible co-incidence that Pelosi happened to take a day off from her impeachment frenzy the exact same day that somebody said she'd be arrested, or she's been arrested. Probably, they moved the timeline forward, and those troops spotted help capture her the previous evening.

Do you bank with the monster mega banks? Be aware that your deposits and cd's and ira's are treated as unsecured loans to that bank. Move it to a credit union that makes safer loans. And so on.

Credit unions and savings and loan companies come under federal laws and scrutiny also. What makes them better?

When the communists come for our money and property, no place is safe. We're living in a whole new reality now.

I am not holding my breath for anything but us to save us. The Lord is always coming again but, thus far, He never has gotten here in time so I do not have to do my homework. On the other hand, if this is true then I will rejoice in my as well prepared as I can make it apartment.

Buy weapons and ammo, lots. Buy gold, liquor, food, water and gasoline. Buy a 25 foot RV and a repair manual and tools for that RV. By a four wheeler.
Buy enough camping gear that you can live outside indefinitely.

Did I mention weapons and ammo?

418 Trump supporters forcing their way into the Capitol on the 6th is analogous to the abused wife slapping her husband on the face as he approaches to beat her up for the umpteenth time.

The world at large seems to be aghast that the abused wife might strike out while ignoring the many beatings already endured from her bullying husband.

Gold is way too high to be a solid investment. Silver maybe.

If I were to go in that direction, it would be a tent, two or three practical firearms with a basic load of ammo, food, water for three days, and a pack bicycle much like the NVA used on the HCM trail.

Of course other implements of survival would also be taken, including a freshly stocked first-aid pack.

421 White Supremacy. Because the only reason Americans would have to be mad at having their votes thrown in the trash is because they dislike those who don't have their own skin color.

422 Our dear Common Application CEO is apparently unaware that the veracity of a statement is inversely proportional to the number of modifiers appended to statement's subject.

423 "[V]iolent, white supremacist insurrectionists" versus "peaceful Black and Brown protestors." Nope, no bias here. Just move along now; nothing to see.
