The Imperial USA Retreats

Although the way it was done was a humiliating shambles, the retreat of the USA from its occupation of Afghanistan is not a bad thing; the US military should also be withdrawn from Iraq, Africa, Europe, and most of its military bases around the world. But the question is, does this retreat spell the end of the empire?

Wise men in Washington have claimed for years that defeat in Afghanistan is what pushed the Soviet Union to collapse. Now that the US has done much worse, the world is about to see whether their theories hold water.
The last US military flight out of the Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKIA) took off on Monday, a minute before the clocks struck midnight in Kabul. The 20-year war had come to an end, and the Taliban lit up the night skies with celebratory gunfire.

To hear President Joe Biden tell it, “the largest airlift in US history” was an “unparalleled” success, executed by the US military, diplomats, veterans and volunteers “with unmatched courage, professionalism, and resolve.”

In the minds of just about everyone else who could watch the events unfold over the past two weeks, it was a mad scramble to evacuate over 100,000 Afghans eager to emigrate, with fewer than 6,000 Americans making the flights – and several hundred being left behind for diplomats to try and save.

In fact, while 82nd Airborne Division commander General Christopher Donahue and US ambassador to Afghanistan Ross Wilson were the last two people to step on the last plane, no American civilians were on board the last five flights out of Kabul. This was the startling admission by General Kenneth McKenzie of CENTCOM to Pentagon reporters on Monday evening.

“We did not get everybody out that we wanted to get out,” McKenzie said.

Compare that to the Soviet pullout from Afghanistan, which ended in February 1989. The USSR took nine months to draw down over 100,000 troops. The last man across the Bridge of Friendship into present-day Uzbekistan was General Boris V. Gromov, who turned to a TV crew and said, “There is not a single Soviet soldier or officer left behind me.”

The government of Dr. Najibullah, whom the Soviets intervened to support against the US-backed Islamists a decade earlier, fought on for three more years – collapsing only after the USSR itself imploded and stopped sending aid. By contrast, the US-backed government in Kabul vanished into thin air before the US withdrawal was even complete.

Russia Today, 31 August 2021

What this comparison tells us is that the neoclown world order, aka “the open society”, aka Globohomo, is even less ideologically appealing to the people it oppresses around the world than Soviet-style communism. The riots and protests against the vaccine regimes around the world, from Australia to France, testify to the same thing.

This is precisely what the Learned Elders of Wye feared back in 2006 when they began to make their initial plans to leave the sinking ship of the USA, but if the shambolic retreat of their servants from Afghanistan is a true harbinger, it suggests their planned retreat from the USA will be even more disastrous.

UPDATE: George Soros on China:

2010: China has ‘better-functioning government’ than the USA.

2021: Xi Jinping is “the most dangerous enemy of open societies in the world.”

I wonder what could possibly have changed Mr. Soros’s opinion in the interim?

Neoclown World is Not Our Culture

A feminist worries – rightly – about the Taliban providing the Men of the West with a useful role model:

Amid the blood-spattered horrors of Kabul, perhaps the most startling response has been an outpouring of warlike passion from disaffected young Western men. But they’re not backing Western soldiers. They’re cheering on the Taliban.

Far-Right groups are gloating. One user on an online message board called the toppled Western-backed Afghan government ‘globohomo-clownworld’. He characterised this as powered by ‘liberalism, consumerism, secularism, usury, democracy, global capitalism… and most of all, feminism/women’s rights/women’s liberation’.

Such men consider abhorrent this value system that an America-led coalition spent trillions of dollars trying to instil, via two decades of Afghan ‘nation-building’.

These alienated men hate all of it – the whole woke world view, from racial tolerance to LGBT rights to feminism. And they’re lionising the Taliban as heroic anti-woke freedom fighters.

One meme circulating on social media as Kabul fell depicted barefoot Taliban fighters next to a photo of American soldiers wearing high heels for a PR stunt, mockingly connecting Western support for gender-bending to a failure of military competence. And, above all else, these angry Western men detest feminism….

I’ll be the first to condemn this swamp of hatred – and, of course, there is a danger that in discussing it, the noxious opinions reach a wider audience. But just think for a moment about what it implies. Far from feeling a patriotic love for their own culture and nation, a minority of fighting-age Western men viscerally hate it.

They’re looking at images of gun-waving men in a violent, war-torn wasteland where women can be beaten with impunity. And they’re not horrified. They’re envious.

Of course we have no patriotic love for the frauds that feign to fly the flags of our cultures and nations. Clown World isn’t our culture. Mixed-race multiethnic multireligious transgendered diversity isn’t our nation. The neoclowns aren’t our people. Every intelligent Western man and woman hates literally everything about the Tolerance, Equality, Progress, Inclusive, Diverse neoclown world, so much so that anyone who is sane would quite reasonably prefer the rule of anyone from the Chinese Neoconfucians and the Russian Orthodox Nationalists to the Taliban and MS-13 in preference to the inept and wicked rule of the moronic females and post-Christian pharisatanics who presently rule over the people of the West through word magic, credit money, and media fiat.

The nations will rise. The neoclown empire will fall. Christendom will return. And feminism, which is the only political ideology in history more stupid than Communism and more evil than National Socialism, will be eradicated.

The Scale of Humiliation

Mark Steyn observes that the astonishingly rapid victory of the Taliban may be the Imperial USA’s Suez moment and that the scale of the global humiliation is almost off the charts.

The scale of America’s global humiliation is so total that I see my friends at Fox News cannot even bear to cover it. As I write, every other world network – the BBC, Deutsche Welle, France 24, not to mention the Chinese – is broadcasting the collapse of the American regime in real time; on Fox, meanwhile, they’re talking about the spending bill and the third Covid shot and the dead Haitians …as if the totality of the defeat is such that for once it cannot be fixed into the American right’s usual consolations (“well, this positions us pretty nicely for 2022”).

On the leftie side, of course, the court eunuchs have risen as one to protect the Dementia Kid, and are working as hurriedly as the Kabul document-shredders in an effort to figure out a way to blame it all on Trump.

But don’t for a moment think this is just some rushed, bungled, memo-incinerating abandonment of the US embassy. State Department diplomats have been preparing this move all summer, under cover of a highly sophisticated deflection operation on their Kabul Twitter feed:

The month of June is recognized as (LGBTI) Pride Month. The United States respects the dignity & equality of LGBTI people & celebrates their contributions to the society. We remain committed to supporting civil rights of minorities, including LGBTI persons. #Pride2021 #PrideMonth

I do hope they’ve managed to evacuate the embassy’s LGBTQWERTY flag before the sacking commences.

America is not “too big to fail”: It’s failing by almost every metric right now. The world-record brokey-brokey-brokeness manifested by the current spending bills is only possible because the US dollar is the global currency. When that ends, we’re Weimar with smartphones. Clearly, Chairman Xi and his allies occasionally muse on the best moment to yank the dollar out from under. If you were in Beijing watching telly today, would you perhaps be considering advancing those plans?

In other words, is this not merely a humiliation but America’s Suez moment? In my bestseller After America, I recalled a long-ago conversation with the Countess of Avon (Clarissa Churchill, Winston’s niece, widow of the then prime minister Anthony Eden – and still with us at the splendid age of 101). Somewhere along the way, Lady Avon observed ruefully that the eight days of the Suez crisis in late 1956 marked the great divide between the words “British Empire” being still taken seriously and their being a sneering punchline.

The last eight days may well do the same for the term “global superpower”.

Steyn alludes to, but avoids stating, what is entirely obvious to any historically literate observer. This catastrophic defeat was the neoclowns’ war. This was not America’s failure, it was the failure of the self-styled “national security right” who flattered themselves into believing that they dictated reality with their words. Afghanistan is the neocons’ failure. It is AIPAC’s failure. Genuine Americans never wanted, supported, or endorsed the concept of an empire in the Middle East.

To quote one veteran who served in it: “My friends died for nothing. My soldiers died for nothing. I served for nothing. And the communists took over at home.”

Adolf Hitler erroneously blamed the Jews for the German defeat in WWI. He was wrong to do so because Germany never had any chance of winning that two-front war even before the USA got involved. But anyone in the future who wants to blame those whom Steyn euphemistically labels “the national security right” for the US defeats in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan will be absolutely correct. This was Bill Kristol’s war. This was Paul Wolfowitz’s war. This was Richard Perle’s war. This was David Frum’s war. This was Max Boot’s war. This was Michael Ledeen’s war. This was Jennifer Rubin’s war. This was Ben Shapiro’s war.

Did Iraq pose an immediate threat to our nation? Perhaps not. But toppling Saddam Hussein and democratizing Iraq prevent his future ascendance and end his material support for future threats globally. The same principle holds true for Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Egypt, Pakistan and others: Pre-emption is the chief weapon of a global empire. No one said empire was easy, but it is right and good, both for Americans and for the world.
– Benjamin Shapiro, WorldNetDaily, Aug. 11, 2005

But it was not America’s war, and no American should ever forget that. These second- and third-generation immigrants have systematically labored to destroy what was once, briefly, the greatest nation, the greatest Christian nation, on Earth. Now, imagine how much worse the situation would be today if the cursed neoclowns had gotten their way and US troops were also trapped in Iran and Syria and Pakistan and Ukraine.

But their time is passing. Their failure is inevitable. Those who corrode and corrupt their way to influence and power will never be able to hold on to their positions, because with power comes responsibility and neither corrosion nor corruption are capable of serving as a foundation for building anything but chaos and Hell on Earth.

Mr. Buchanan’s Questions

In which I answer Pat Buchanan’s questions about the failed invasion and occupation of Afghanistan.

The questions that need answering. Was not the attempt to transplant Madisonian democracy into the soil of the Middle and Near East a fool’s errand from the beginning?

Yes. First, the Middle East and Near East have zero interest in Madisonian democracy. Second, what the US empire has been exporting for the last 40-50 years is not “Madisonian democracy”, but rather, a foreign imperialism that wears Madisonian democracy as a skinsuit.

How many other U.S. allies field paper armies, which will collapse, if they do not have the Americans there to do the heavy lifting?

All of them except for the Japanese armed forces. Even the highly-regarded Israeli Defense Forces are a little more than a Potemkin military, whose excellent historical reputation is primarily based, as the Israeli general Moshe Dayan observed, on the feeble capabilities of their historical opponents. And the US forces are observably inferior to the current Russian and Chinese forces, and, on the basis of their failures in Afghanistan, quite possibly to Iranian forces on the ground.

Is what we have on offer — one man-one vote democracy — truly appealing in a part of the world where democracy seems to have trouble, from the Maghreb to the Middle East to Central Asia, putting down any deep roots?

Democracy no longer holds any appeal anywhere, not in the Maghreb, not in the Middle East, not in Central Asia, and not in Europe. Everyone knows it is fake and gay and literally Satanic.

Who lost America’s longest war?

The neocons who have run US foreign policy since the first Bush administration did. Americans are fortunate that the neocons were unable to enmesh the US military in Syria or Iran, or the consequences would have been even worse.

To be more precise, if the Israelis are to be believed, a small group of Jewish Boomers whose fathers were followers of Leon Trotsky did.

In the course of the past year, a new belief has emerged in the town: the belief in war against Iraq. That ardent faith was disseminated by a small group of 25 or 30 neoconservatives, almost all of them Jewish, almost all of them intellectuals (a partial list: Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, William Kristol, Eliot Abrams, Charles Krauthammer), people who are mutual friends and cultivate one another and are convinced that political ideas are a major driving force of history. They believe that the right political idea entails a fusion of morality and force, human rights and grit.

Are they wrong? Have they committed an act of folly in leading Washington to Baghdad? They don’t think so. They continue to cling to their belief. They are still pretending that everything is more or less fine. That things will work out. Occasionally, though, they seem to break out in a cold sweat. This is no longer an academic exercise, one of them says, we are responsible for what is happening. The ideas we put forward are now affecting the lives of millions of people. So there are moments when you’re scared. You say, Hell, we came to help, but maybe we made a mistake.

“If America is beaten, the consequences will be catastrophic. Its deterrent capability will be weakened, its friends will abandon it and it will become insular. Extreme instability will be engendered in the Middle East.”

  • Charles Krauthammer, 2003

It is now obvious to the entire world that these neocons are evil, incompetent idiots who did, in fact, produce an epic series of historic disasters. And they should be held responsible for the catastrophic consequences they knowingly risked.

The line in the sand

The Littlest Chickenhawk may not care about the demographic destruction of America and he doesn’t hesitate to support left-wing corporations, but he does draw a line. One guess where….


Skinsuits for satanists

There is one minor problem with the way this poll was reported: the tenet is not false:

Fifteen percent of Americans agree with the central false tenet of the QAnon conspiracy theory: that the government and other entities are controlled by Satan-worshipping pedophiles running a child sex trafficking ring, according to a new poll.
Among Republicans the survey, released Wednesday by the Public Religion Research Institute, found that 23 percent of respondents agreed with the statement that “the government, media and financial worlds in the U.S. are controlled by a group of Satan-worshipping pedophiles who run a global child sex trafficking operation.”
That number declines to 14 percent among independents and 8 percent among Democrats. 
The survey also found that 20 percent of Americans believe another central part of the conspiracy theory, that “there is a storm coming soon that will sweep away the elites in power and restore the rightful leaders.”
Twenty-eight percent of Republicans surveyed agreed with the statement, compared to 18 percent of independents and 14 percent of Democrats.
The poll also found that 15 percent of survey respondents said that “because things have gotten so far off track, true American patriots may have to resort to violence in order to save our country.”

Americans have desperately tried to avoid accepting the obvious: their nation was destroyed by evil people who labored hard from 1920 to 1965 to open up the borders of the USA for precisely that purpose. But the truth is no longer deniable by anyone with even a modicum of honesty and historical awareness. The only question is what price Americans will have to pay for being foolish and stupid enough to permit the entry of history’s great nation-wreckers, and how much land they will have to sacrifice to the imported foreign hordes in order to be free again.

Fortunately, it is already clear that the century-long attempt by the Satan-worshipping pedophiles to utilize the US empire to establish their long-cherished dream of Techno-Babylon has failed. Both the Chinese and the Russians are already at war with them; the Russians expelled them and the Chinese have refused to fall for their usual blandishments.

That is why they are so desperate to thought police, muzzle, and disarm the American people, why they had to fake the 2020 election so openly, and why they are trying to start wars with both Russia and China. They have nowhere else to go. They know perfectly well that once the American people begin to understand exactly what they are and precisely whom they serve, there will be no mercy for them, no matter how much they shriek and cry about anti-satanism.

By their fruits then surely ye shall know them.

Satan does not wish to rule in secret. His proud and arrogant servitors dream of seeing the inferior masses cringing and cowering before them in submission. And that is why his schemes, sooner or later, will always come to light.

Meanwhile, the ever-retarded Boomers are still worrying about “Communists”:

In the chaotic world we live in, a catastrophic event could come from just about anywhere, but the one that I want to focus on in this article is a Communist takeover of America. Breitbart recently reported an open letter signed by over 120 retired generals and admirals warning of just that. The letter stated in part: “Our nation is in deep peril. We are in a fight for our survival as a Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776. The conflict is between supporters of Socialism and Marxism vs. supporters of Constitutional freedom and liberty.”

No one who has been paying attention could doubt the reality of this threat to our country. As frequent Crisis contributor Paul Kengor demonstrates in his excellent book The Devil and Karl Marx, Communists have been slowly taking over the institutions of this nation for the last hundred years. Now, they appear ready to make a push for complete control of the country. They do not always call themselves Marxists, or Communists, or Socialists, but their goal is the same—to create a Soviet America.  

The “Socialism and Marxism vs Constitutional freedom and liberty conflict” put forth by conservatives is a false front. The real war is not about Right and Left, or Capitalist and Communist, Democrat and Republican, or Soviet and American, or Axis and Allies, or Jew and Nazi, or Republican and Nationalist, or Scientist and Priest, and it never has been. The labels don’t matter. All of these identities are just skinsuits for satanists.

The truth really isn’t that hard to grasp for those who are honest with themselves. Tolkien, for one, very well understood how the world works. Ask yourself this question: in the current US context, who are the Grima Wormtongues, over whom do they wield influence, what objectives do they seek, and whom do they serve?


Palestinian Lives Matter

The ADL and the SPLC should really consider establishing a PLM movement in Israel. It’s obvious that racism is far more rampant in Israel than it is in the USA:

Hundreds of young Jewish supremacists, led by far-right leader Benzi Gopstein — who is on for incitement for incitement to violence, racism, and terror — now gathered near Jerusalem’s Old City. Journalists on the ground reporting chants of “death to Arabs.”

Can you imagine how loudly the US Jewish organizations would be shrieking if there were hundreds of young white supremacists, led by far-right leader Heidi Sammler, now gathered in Washington DC chanting “death to Arabs”?

Why any conservative pays any attention whatsoever to neoclown attempts at moral-scolding, their posturings about moral supremacy, or their incessant historical revisionism is completely beyond me. And don’t forget that their objective is to rule a global empire.

Did Iraq pose an immediate threat to our nation? Perhaps not. But toppling Saddam Hussein and democratizing Iraq prevent his future ascendance and end his material support for future threats globally. The same principle holds true for Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Egypt, Pakistan and others: Pre-emption is the chief weapon of a global empire. No one said empire was easy, but it is right and good, both for Americans and for the world.

Michelle calls out the neoclowns

I’ve been justifiably hard on Michelle Malkin over the years. She’s still never, to my knowledge, come clean about her lack of research concerning the complete absence of any threat posed to the US West Coast by Japan in 1941. But she’s clearly got no shortage of steel in her spine, because she’s openly calling out what appears to be the latest subversion by the country that publicly claims to be a great ally, but too often behaves like a mortal enemy:

Two things can be true: 1) Gaetz may well have engaged in vile behavior, perhaps even worse and more sordid than what has been alleged so far AND 2) Israel/Mossad is at work using all of the involved Beltway and Florida figures as honey-pot puppets on a much grander theatrical stage…as they have done in the past and continue to do in the present. I don’t know what specifically the aim is here — drawing the US into war with Iran, something to do with Ukraine/Russia, who the hell knows. 

But the most important takeaway is this isn’t what “greatest allies” are supposed to be doing to each other, right? It is, however, what Russia and China and Israel and other sovereign nations’ intelligence apparatuses do to their rivals. Pattern recognition is fundamental. 

The second most important takeaway is to recruit and promote a better generation of upright, disciplined, un-blackmail-able America First politicians and leaders. Otherwise, it will be business as usual in the spook-infested America Last Swamp. Time for normie Republicans to open their eyes and de-condition themselves from their reflexive stances on so many things. “Greatest ally” my ass. Stop staring at the shadows inside the cave. Look behind you.

Blackmail culture is subversive, destructive, and literally both unAmerican and anti-Western. As I mentioned in tonight’s Darkstream, the only way to stay afloat in a sea of lies is to relentlessly tell the truth. That’s not possible for ticket takers and those who “succeed” by selling their souls.

And the only way to combat the evil, the ugly, and the lie is to relentlessly stand up and support the Good, the Beautiful, and the True.


The conservative case for mandatory vaccinations

I’m sure all of you will be surprised that the Littlest Chickenhawk is pushing mandatory vaccination laws:

During the March 18 episode of his radio show, conservative commentator Ben Shapiro made the case for mandatory vaccination.

When a caller asked Shapiro about the use of fetal baby DNA, and about the vaccine companies not having any liability and having access to a special government-sponsored payout system for those who sustain critical injuries or die because of vaccines, Shapiro made the case for mandating them anyway.

Shapiro claimed that personal liberty only counts when it comes to vaccines if the vaccine is simply designed to protect you from a disease, and not to achieve herd immunity. “One, you have to determine that there are differences in my opinion with regard to vaccines that are directly designed to prevent you from getting a disease, and ones that rely on herd immunity in order to prevent others from getting a disease,” said Shapiro.

“So, for example, if there is a vaccine that was only, the only purpose of it is for you to be vaccinated against a particular disease, but there’s no real risk of you becoming a carrier of that disease, for example, then that’s up to you, because obviously it’s your choice or not to have a disease.”

Shapiro then made the case in an extremely long sentence that vaccines are analogous to water pollution, saying that if someone pollutes a river, and that bothers somebody else who is downstream from the river, then that would be illegal.

“If, however, there is certain diseases, like mumps, measles, rubella, which are highly transmissible, and where you require herd immunity, specifically to prevent against the transmission of the disease to people who cannot have vaccinations,” said Shapiro, “that prevent transmission of that disease to those people, then you run into the externality problem.”

Of course, you won’t get herd immunity from a not-vaccine, but let’s not interrupt him while he’s showing his true colors again. Isn’t it interesting that he somehow can’t figure out the externality problem when it comes to immigration?

Never trust a neoclown.


Out of the frying pan

Gina Carano leaps right into the fire. And it’s really remarkable how many center-right idiots simply cannot spot a gatekeeper to literally save their lives.

Two days after Disney found an excuse to fire Gina Carano for being a conservative, the former Mandalorian star announced she’s teaming up with Ben Shapiro and Jeremy Boreing’s Daily Wire to produce and star in an upcoming film.

“The Daily Wire is helping make one of my dreams — to develop and produce my own film — come true. I cried out and my prayer was answered,” Carano on Friday. “I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob. I have only just begun using my voice which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same. They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them.”

Clay Travis gave credit to the Daily Wire team and spoke on the topic on Friday’s OutKick the Show.

In December, the Daily Wire announced that it was moving into the entertainment business. Minutes later, I wrote about the news, explaining how influential its success can be:

Those who routinely consume the news can easily underestimate the power entertainment has on the way Americans think, react, communicate and vote. If you merely consumed President Donald Trump’s presidency through the lens of Hollywood, you probably believe he’s racist, sexist, fat, dumb, and incompetent. Did a single major TV show or film say a nice word about him? If they tried, would the pitch make it past the networks distributing the content?

For eight years, entertainment creators told the same viewers that Barack Obama was cool, smart, likable, and exactly what the country needed. I’m not here to tell you what to think about either Obama or Trump, but like-minded directors and writers shouldn’t be either.

Thus, I give props to Ben Shapiro, Jeremy Boreing and the Daily Wire for taking on this risk.

Note that their very first movie featured a white girl with an African boyfriend. The only reason Chickenhawk Studios exists is to subvert the conservative audience that is rejecting the Devil Mouse and other lesser Hellmouth denizens in the hopes of preventing a genuine alternative from rising. As always, look at how quickly they were funded compared to how long it takes the organic alternatives to grow.

As for Outkick, Clay Travis appears to be playing the role of Glenn Reynolds while Ben Burack is Ed Driscoll. And either this comment is a plant or Outkick commenters are literally retarded.

One of the great things about Trump is that he exposed those establishment voices (Bill McCrystal, etc…) for what they are. And we’ve seen the real conservatives like Shapiro stand tall. And now with only corporate, and no voter, support, groups like the Lincoln Project clowns are being exposed too.

How on Earth do you not know that Bill Kristol, Ben Shapiro, and the Lincoln Project clowns, to say nothing of Dennis Prager and Steven Crowder, are all part of the same neoclown operation?
