Becoming A Collapsitarian

Leaving sex to the feminists is like letting your dog vacation at the taxidermist.”

“Men have sacrificed and crippled themselves physically and emotionally to feed, house, and protect women and children. None of their pain or achievement is registered in feminist rhetoric, which portrays men as oppressive and callous exploiters.” 

“A woman simply is, but a man must become. Masculinity is risky and elusive. It is achieved by a revolt from woman, and it is confirmed only by other men.”

“American feminism has a man problem. The beaming Betty Crockers, hangdog dowdies, and parochial prudes who call themselves feminists want men to be like women. They fear and despise the masculine. The academic feminists think their nerdy bookworm husbands are the ideal model of human manhood.”

“Modern liberalism suffers unresolved contradictions. It exalts individualism and freedom and, on its radical wing, condemns social orders as oppressive. On the other hand, it expects government to provide materially for all, a feat manageable only by an expansion of authority and a swollen bureaucracy. In other words, liberalism defines government as tyrant father but demands it behave as nurturant mother.”

– Camille Paglia

(ZeroGov) Publisher’s Note: I think Paglia may be one of the most original thinkers on sex in out time.

The trans- phenomenon has gained plenty of traction in popular media and academia for a variety of reasons, the victim hood card is, of course, de jure and de facto, putting it at the front of the line. The other reason (among many, all root cause analysis discovers many vectors) is yet another assault on masculinity, no matter the destination of the gender dysmorphia even a transition to “male”; the feminine is always superior to the masculine. The reason is [blood] simple. The masculine impulse will always challenge authority whether government or private, the nature of masculine ambition distilled. This is a partial explanation for the sex deficit of women among libertarians and the all the components ecologies of the anti-state and anti-authoritarian. The dearth of female adherents to anti-statist philosophy may very well be determined by a natural inclination to security and the mistaken perception that only a coercive state can do this.

Hence the media swooning and pearl clutching over the plight and experience of trans folk. One can see that media portrayals of the feminine are shallow, worshipful and tilted in a confirmation bias that favors state violence and aggression to organize society while the media portrayal of men is mostly that of doddering, intellectually stunted sexual predators whose existence is merely guaranteed by female steering and moralizing.

“Toxic masculinity” is the glue that has held human civilization together since time immemorial. The war against men is real and the West is simply rending itself in paroxysms of idiotic indulgence and short-sighted pearl clutching at every vestige of victim-hood, perceived or real.

You see it everyday; in some chilling comments I read lately, the communist interlocutor claimed that both freedom and masculinity has lost and we simply don’t know it because the commanding hights of the media and academia have been collectivist hothouses that have captured the mind of the youth and therein lies the true generational power.

Teach your children well, especially your boys, Their entire future depends on it.

“Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too.”

– Marcus Aurelius

“It is always the adventurers who do great things, not the sovereigns of great empires.”

– Montesquieu

I was asked a good question today and thought it was worth mentioning here… along with my answer.

“Communists are clearly trying to destroy the US, what parallel to their effort is Collapsitarian?” This is a fair question, and deserves an in-depth answer.

The Communist Coup is clearly in full-view to anyone not reading braille or drooling tide-pods by now.

This has been their intention all along… to create authoritarian rule in the USSA.

It began in the compulsory indoctrination camps, and made its way through media, entertainment, local, state, and federal government… you cannot look anywhere without seeing minions with a child-like reverence for government. They want to be ruled.

This is happening.

It became apparent, that there was no un-doing the damage they have done… there was no solving this current trajectory towards chattel slavery by political means, or even by political memes (though we love them).

The only sensible action left was to accept the collapse and prepare for the next chapter, instead of losing all trying to protect what had already been corrupted with Utopian Collectivism.

The Communist Coup must disarm Americans to enact any further “progress”.

Whether you believe in a Cabal, the Deep State, BEPIGS or just the fact that powerful people you can’t reach want what you have left, it is happening. The plantation owners are restructuring.

This is your chance to change the future of your progeny. Do not comply with any further attempts at gun control. In fact… if you haven’t already, you need to learn to drive a rifle, or accept that you will be riding a rail car.

Train your loved ones, make your plans.

A failure to plan is a plan to fail…

The beauty of the 2A was that if kept regularly drilled & proficient, it would keep tyranny in check, but Americans have been complacent on a very large scale and have shirked that responsibility onto too small a number of people.

My intent of Collapsitarian as an ideology was to fight the fear… people become immobilized when they are fearful. Fear enables your masters to control you.

Set down your distractions, accept what is coming, and ready yourselves.

Form neighborhood alliances, mutual assistance groups, build your teams, but decentralize your efforts and seek only to lead yourselves.

It is apparent, Communists will not be appeased, as is playing out in Hong Kong right now.

In conclusion, Collapsitarian is the realization that no one is coming to save you. As they chop and attempt to divide this once great people, our home, and our liberties, give them no quarter.

Life, Liberty, & Property.

This We’ll Defend.

Trump Quietly Conceded His Trade War To China Yesterday

Clapping back

After unexpectedly conceding to China last week, when Trump announced he would delay imposing the bulk of the 10% tariffs on $300BN in mostly consumer-focused goods from September 1 until mid-December, a move that surprised analysts as it was not based on any concessions from Beijing but was merely a panicked response to the tumbling stock market.

Late on Friday Trump made another unexpected concession when the Commerce Department announced it would extend a reprieve given to Huawei permitting the Chinese firm to buy supplies from U.S. companies so that it can service existing customers.

Back in May, after the US Commerce Dept blacklisted Huawei, it allowed the Chinese telecom giant to purchase some American-made goods in a move aimed at minimizing disruption for its customers, many of which operate networks in rural America.

The “temporary general license” will be extended for Huawei for 90 days, according to Reuters, and will renew an agreement set to lapse on August 19, continuing the Chinese company’s ability to maintain existing telecommunications networks and provide software updates to Huawei handsets.

Earlier this year, the U.S. government blacklisted Huawei blocking it from buying U.S. goods, and alleging the Chinese company is involved in activities contrary to national security or foreign policy interests; at the time the ban was seen as a major escalation in the trade war between the world’s two top economies. As an example cited by Reuters, the blacklisting order cited a criminal case pending against the company in federal court, over allegations Huawei violated U.S. sanctions against Iran.

The United States also says Huawei’s smartphones and network equipment could be used by China to spy on Americans, which allegations the company has vehemently and repeatedly denied.

Still, Reuters sources noted that the situation surrounding the license, which has become a key bargaining chip for the United States in its trade negotiations with China, remains fluid and the decision to continue the Huawei reprieve could change ahead of the Monday deadline.

Another source said that President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping are expected to discuss Huawei in a call this weekend.

Despite the last minute reprieve, the world’s largest telecommunications equipment maker is still prohibited from buying American parts and components to manufacture new products without additional special licenses. Many Huawei suppliers have requested the special licenses to sell to the firm. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told reporters late last month he had received more than 50 applications, and that he expected to receive more.

Curiously, some of the biggest critics of the Huawei ban have been US companies: out of $70 billion that Huawei spent buying components in 2018, over $11 billion went to U.S. firms including Qualcomm, Intel and Micron Technology.

Why Wasn’t The Philly Mass Cop Shooter’s Picture Plastered On CNN Today?

Oh…

Maurice Hill, 36, had a long history of gun violence convictions.

(Ann Corcoran) I said I would write about American criminals from time to time, and I’ve told you that I watch CNN the first thing every morning as a way of seeing where the Leftwingers/Progressives are going on any given day.

Today, at CNN, the morning anchors were talking their viewers into thinking a Trump-induced recession was upon us, but they also reported on the gun violence in the Democrat-run city of Philadelphia.

They did report that the shooter, who wounded six police officers when officers came to serve a warrant on the man who ultimately opened fire, and said the shooter had a veritable arsenal of weapons and ammunition. But, I didn’t hear them mention his name, only that he was taken into custody.

Maurice Hill, we learn here at the Philadelphia Inquirer had a long criminal history.

(See that Townhall was on it overnight with a report about Hill’s criminal history.)

So, how did Hill get his guns including assault weapons?  Are we going to hear anything about whether he had a background check?  Are we going to hear anything about mental illness? Are we going to hear anything about who he hated (police?)? Are we going to be told that a background check would have kept him from owning guns?  Did his family, friends and neighbors ever try to report him to the local police?

Are we going to hear anything about who his political heroes are?

I’ll bet that starting tomorrow, you won’t hear another peep about how the city of brotherly love harbors violent criminals with arsenals in their closets. Why? Because it runs against the PC narrative our mainstream media is peddling.

All the gun laws in the world are not going to keep the Maurice Hills from acquiring “weapons of war.”

And, you know where that leaves you—the law abiding American!

Why Were Over 30,000 Secretary Clinton Emails Blind-Copied To A Chinese Company?

All but four of the 30,490 emails from Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized email server were forwarded to a private Google email address featuring the name of a Chinese company, according to documents released on Aug. 15.

Virtually every email which was sent to and received on the Clinton server was forwarded to “carterheavyindustries@gmail.com,” the documents show.

Frank Rucker, the intelligence community inspector general (ICIG) investigator who spotted the anomaly, searched Google for “Carter Heavy Industries” and came up with results for Shandong Carter Heavy Industry Co., Ltd, a Chinese manufacturer of excavators and heavy machinery, according to the documents.

Rucker and ICIG attorney Jeanette McMillian told the FBI about the anomaly on Feb. 18, 2016, at a meeting which included Peter Strzok, who had just taken over as the section chief heading the probe. Rucker told Congress that Strzok was “aloof and dismissive” and didn’t ask many questions.

Strzok has since gained notoriety for text messages he exchanged with FBI attorney Lisa Page, with whom he was having an extramarital affair. The pair expressed bias against then-candidate Donald Trump and in favor of Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.

McMillian told Congress that her understanding of the Carter Heavy Industries email address was that it was a “drop box” to which the emails from the Clinton server were sent in real time.

Even if you didn’t address an email to this address, the email went to it anyway,” McMillian said.

McMillian and Rucker were interviewed by the Senate Finance and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committees on Dec. 4, 2018, in response to media reports that cited anonymous sources claiming that China gained access to Clinton’s emails. The committees released unclassified versions of those transcripts (pdf) along with several sets of supporting documents on Aug. 14.

The documents include several emails from Clinton and her staffers with message metadata showing the Carter Heavy Industries email address as a recipient.

Inspector General Inquiry

Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz was aware of the ICIG’s referral to the FBI but did not address it in his 568-page report on the FBI and DOJ handling of the Clinton-email inquiry. Horowitz had promised Congress a year ago to look into and report on what the FBI did to investigate the matter. The newly released documents include the results of Horowitz’s inquiry in the form of an April 9, 2019, letter to senators Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.)

In the letter, Horowitz and Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson write that the Carter Heavy Industries email account was created by Platte River Networks employee Paul Combetta, who managed Clinton’s email server.Combetta allegedly created the Carter Heavy Industries email on Aug. 20, 2012, to serve as a “dummy email.” Combetta then used the email in order to transfer messages archived on Clinton’s second private server to the Platte River Networks server in early 2014.

What Combetta did with the email account between 2012 and 2014 and who else had access to it before and after the transfer remains a mystery. Neither the DOJ or the ICIG inspector generals provide any details on whether the FBI ever examined the matter.

Combetta’s use of this email account is addressed in Horowitz’s report, although it is referred to as a “dummy email” instead of revealing the actual address. Horowitz and Atkinson do not explain how Combetta came to pick the email address. Combetta’s lawyer told Horowitz that the Carter Heavy Industries email was a made-up name and that Combetta had no connection to Shandong Carter Heavy Industry Co., Ltd.

Combetta, through an attorney, refused to be interviewed by the DOJ inspector general about the matter, according to the letter. He also said he had no documents responsive to subpoena about the issue.

Horowitz wrote that his office did not find any evidence to contradict the claims of Combetta’s lawyer.

“Accordingly, other than the similarity discussed above between the dummy email address and the name of a Chinese company identified by the former ICIG analyst and former Inspector General McCullough during a Google search, the ICIG and the DOJ OIG are unaware of any information that links Combetta or the dummy email address that he created with the Chinese government or a Chinese-owned company,” Horowitz and Atkinson wrote.

Report: Amazon’s Facial Recognition System Identifies California Lawmakers as Criminals

According to a test by the ACLU, Amazon’s facial recognition system incorrectly identified one in five California lawmakers were incorrectly identified as criminals by the software.

Vice News reports that Amazon’s facial recognition software, Rekognition, incorrectly identified 26 California lawmakers as people arrested for crimes during a test of the software by the ACLU of Northern California. The software was used by the ACLU to scan 120 photos of lawmakers against a database of 25,000 photos of individuals who were arrested, according to ACLU lawyer Matt Cagle.

The test found that one in five California lawmakers were falsely associated with mugshots from the arrest database, exposing the issues with implementing facial recognition technology in law enforcement services. The Rekognition software reportedly matched the lawmakers to mugshot photos with a confidence rate of 80 percent.

Assembly member Phil Ting was one of the individuals incorrectly identified as a criminal by the software. He is also a lawmaker who has been calling for the limiting of facial recognition technology for some time, introducing a bill in February which would ban the use of facial recognition and biometric surveillance system on police-worn body cameras.

Amazon stated that it encourages police to use 99 percent confidence ratings for public safety users stating:  “First, you should use confidence thresholds of 99% or higher to reduce errors and false positives,” in a guide for law enforcement states. In a blog post in February, Amazon stated:

“When using facial recognition to identify persons of interest in an investigation, law enforcement should use the recommended 99% confidence threshold, and only use those predictions as one element of the investigation (not the sole determinant).”

But Cagle stated in an email that Amazon’s 99 percent confidence threshold is not representative of how the technology is used in real-life situations. “In the real world, Amazon does not consider the failure to use a 99 confidence score to be irresponsible and a prominent law enforcement customer for Rekognition has acknowledged lowering and not using any score at all, according to news reports,”Cagle stated, citing a report from Gizmodo in which police stated that they do not set a confidence threshold.

At the press conference, Assembly member Ting stated:

“If you get falsely accused of an arrest, what happens?. It could impact your ability to get employment, it absolutely impacts your ability to get housing. There are real people who could have real impacts.”

Amazon Facial Recognition Can Now Detect Your Fear

Amazon this week said that it’s Rekognition facial recognition software can now detect a person’s fear, according to CNBC.

As one of several Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud services, Rekognition can be used for facial analysis or sentiment analysis by identifying different expressions and predicting emotions based on images of people’s faces. The system uses AI to ‘learn’ as it compiles data. 

The tech giant revealed updates to the controversial tool on Monday that include improving the accuracy and functionality of its face analysis features such as identifying gender, emotions and age range.

“With this release, we have further improved the accuracy of gender identification,” Amazon said in a blog post. “In addition, we have improved accuracy for emotion detection (for all 7 emotions: ‘Happy’, ‘Sad’, ‘Angry’, ‘Surprised’, ‘Disgusted’, ‘Calm’ and ‘Confused’) and added a new emotion: ‘Fear.’” CNBC

AI researchers at Microsoft, Kairos, Affectiva and others have spent considerable time and resources trying to read a person’s emotions based on their facial expressions, movements, voice and other factors.

That said, some experts have noted that people react and communicate differently based on culture and situation – which means that similar facial expressions and movements can convey more than one category of emotions. As such, researchers have warned “it is not possible to confidently infer happiness from a smile, anger from a scowl, or sadness from a frown, as much of current technology tries to do when applying what are mistakenly believed to be scientific facts,” according to the report. 

CNBC notes that Rekognition has faced criticism for its use by law enforcement agencies, as well as a reported pitch to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and that it has been used by organizations that work with law enforcement.
